Couldn't find a thread about this so made a new one, excuse me if there is one, or if this isn't in the roght section.

Anyway, will you be importing the Japanese version of Black/White or waiting until it's been translated and released in English (or what other language you use). Or will you not be buying the Gen V game?

I'll probably be waiting until it's released in the UK. Build up my excitement, somewhat

I'll be waiting for American release. I don;t mind spoiling myself as to the pokemon designs and all that, but I want to stay away from story details beyond the beginning of the game as long as possible. XD

I'll be importing White in Japanese, and buying Black once it is released in the U.S.

Same as Cloud197.

I want to get the Japanese Pokémon White version and then get the American Pokémon Black version once they are released in the U.S. Though, I highly doubt I'll be able to get the Japanese version, but I hope I do.

I'll just wait for it to be available in the US. I don't see the point in paying more money to get a game in a language that I don't fully understand.

I'll be waiting for the English release. I just don't know how I'm going to be able to wait 9-10 months. Japan is getting it in 3-4 months. BAAAAAAAAAWWW

I myself will wait until it's released here in the US.

My brother may import one of them so I might get a chance to play it then.

Yeah, so is spelling and grammar.....

Anyway, the DSi Region Locking is an optional thing, and from what I know, only applies to the DSi Store and DSi-exclusive games. And I assure you that Pokemon Black/White will NOT be DSi-exclusive.

It's called deliberate internet speak.

Moving on, Black & White will be DSi-compatible. The DSi region locking will apply to DSi-compatible games, DSi-exclusive games and DSi Ware. This means that DSi-compatible titles will not work on a DSi that doesn't match the region of the game.

On the topic, I have a Japanese DSi. I also read Japanese. Guess what I'll be playing.

1. (almost)EVERY GAME IS DSI COMPATIBLE(seeing that you can play any Ds game on a DSi and you can play B&W on a normal DS so its not DSi exlusive)
2. I have an english DSi and play many japanesse games
3. They get more sells if people can import

now back on topic
I am going to buy both in japanesse and both in english
I'm just a fanatic lol

I'm going to import the games!
I've been importing, since Platinum. I import because I'll end up reading about the games on a website and spoil it for myself if I don't import.
So I'd rather play through it myself instead of reading about the games on a fansite months before the English release.

ROM White (Jap), Buy Black (Eng) then later White (Eng) so I can have both. Why? Well, because I always do that, except for the 4th gen, since I waited way too long to get it and Platinum came out.

I can't read Japanese, though I am learning. That's why I'm getting English. I wouldn't want to buy something if I can't understand it.

But yes! The legendary pokemon are awesome, especially Zekrom

My Japanese is horrible, and, even though I understand yes, no, and can sort of guess the plot, it'd be ridiculous for me to try and play it. It wouldn't be fun, so I'll wait the extra few months for the English release.
