Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

Red, Steven, Cynthia and such could return as 'super bosses', each giving a choice of pokemon as a reward.

I don't think there would ever be more than one set of starters in the regional pokedex. I don't think this is an issue. But imagine 45/300 pokes being starter... (just a passing thought)

For Gamefreak, Yes.

Imagine a B/W vs B/W2 game and someone is using emboar.

We were already kinda aware of that, but thanks for reposting old news? Haha.


As for who we receive them from, that's another question.
Perhaps since we're near a school we'll receive them from a teacher this time rather than a professor as a nice change from things?

Oh, that would be really cool!! It would be a nice change if we were students of a trainer school for a little bit before we go on an adventure and we're given a Pokémon that way. Whether it be from a professor paying a visit to the school, or some other way.

I just hope they don't slam the "school" part into our heads too much, like forcing us to go through basic things that we already know (except for catching since that's in every game). That would make for a super boring intro haha.

Receiving our starters from a school teacher really does change things up, and it would give us a different way to meet the professor too! But if we don't start out to be 10 like in Black and White, I don't see why we would need to go to a school to get our starter. Plus, I'd much rather GameFreak give us a little hint in the beginning when Akumora hands us our starter Pokémon as to why he would if evil.

First you get a pidove. Then you suffer through the tutorial section. (ie Trainer School) Once the tutorial is over, you get the running shoes, a starter pokemon, and you get to leave the stupid tutorial behind forever.

That's how I see it. The starter is given as a graduation gift, not just given to any 10 year old.

I wonder if they would have you start off with Reshiram or Zekrom depending on which game you bought and Reshiram/Zekrom gets stolen and you have to start off and your mom tells you to go see the professor and he will help you get them back in return for filling out the pokedex

That would be an awsome opening . the player vs. Black Kyurem or White Kyurem and you lose badly or the fight gets interrupted by Team Plasma or whichever new team they will have

I'm 99% sure they won't change the starters. But I am just curious what the twist will be. They might just be talking about how we obtain the starters, and not the starters themselves.

Maybe we'll find out tomorrow when they show footage on Smash.

But then you'd have like... a level 5 Reshiram or Zekrom. o_O Wouldn't that be way overpowered early on? XD; I'd much rather just the normal starters. :x

I wish they would do what the company who did the GC games did with a preset one.

I thought there was a new professor. So shouldn't we be receiving the pokemon from that guy? Where'd you find the information about the school teacher :/

I also think they're keeping the original starters from the unova reigon :(
kinda sucks, but makes sense. I'll bet the older pokemon are just for catching variety.

No I mean they would be level 50 Black Kyurem or White Kyurem (Whichever you're fighting) is around level 55 in the middle of your battle you're inturrupted etc. It would be nice *sigh*

Probably even more unlikely. Starting off with level 50 would significantly harm your journey, whereas Tepig/Oshawott/Snivy would be an appropriate start.

It would be nice to have different starters. I'm not a huge fan of the Unova starters so if it's them again, I'm just gonna trade in something else as soon as I can. Probably a Cherubi. :P

I do like the idea of the school, though. That makes a lot more sense to me re: pokemon trainers than professors handing out Pokemon to random kids in their town.

You do begin with the same starters. :(

That's true but I guess it's what the Professors were made to do (though they only have three choices)? Not that I don't like the idea of switching it up. I'd really like that. I want more out of the professor since it seems all that's been given were small roles (like Juniper calling up and appearing at different scenes - only for a short period of time though). & It does seem like there is going to be more to do with this professor and I'm really interested in that!

id really like to see a fixed starter like in pokemon yellow. mareep no way. eevee would be a cool idea. get some new eeveelutions as well.

i dont want to see these starters again. i picked tepig who was hugely disappointing as a pokemon... i think its almost lazy to have the same ones. someone mentioned that each region has universal starters so we arent getting 3 new fire/water/grass pokemon.

really hoping they dont slip up, black/white turned out to be amazing games, dont want just another story. new pokemon AND new story then id be in love!

The same starters. Also the professor reminds of N for some reason. I think he's going to be an antagonist.

No no no it would be a continuation of Black and White. You know after you complete everything and capture the Reshiram/ Zekrom. You don't keep the m in the beginning you lose them because your battle gets interrupted and someone steals your legendary admidst the confusion....ugh nevermind

I'm kind of liking the thought of a school teacher giving me my first Pokemon. That'd make the person my favorite teacher EVER. It makes sense, though, if you ask me. Teachers give you the tools you need to learn, or in this case Pokemon, and then you learn with those tools. A scientist/professor who researches Pokemon give them to you more so as an experiment. I always feels like a Professor's Aide more than anything else.
So if it's a teacher giving me my Tepig, I'm stoked. <3

Because it'd be a shame to play with the same starters once again.

The starters will be the same as they were in B&W. Gamefreak won't make that kind of drastic change I don't think.
