What game did you choose?
What is the reason for choosing that game?
do you like white forrest or black city better?
Which legend do you think is better?

I like pokemon black a lot better because of the legendary and because of the black city, unlike white forrest black city offers quite a bit more action.
Black city also sells more items.

Both, but I prefer White.
I thought that Zekrom looked cooler than Reshiram when I first got them, so I chose White to work with first.
I like White Forest better because you can get rare pokemon, while the items in Black City you can get from dust clouds or with the Dowsing Machine.
Now that I think about it, I kinda like Reshiram better because it's a special-based attacker and there are more physical attackers in the region than special-based.

I purchased Black myself, but I strongly dislike white forest >.<

I would much rather Black City for the consistent battles you can have (I think you can battle people there every day?) Also, White forest just doesn't appeal to me due to the lack of purpose. sure you can get different wild pokemon, but I do not really care enough to collect them. I should have thought of that before I bought the game. Maybe I will get another chance when Black/White 2 is released.

I chose Black cos I like Reshiram better than Zekrom.

In fact, most of Black's version exclusive Pokemon persuaded me, particularly the Gothita line.

Also, I liked Black City better cos I love technological scenery.

400 views already? Woow. XD;

Anyway! I have both Black and White, and while White is my primary game, I actually prefer Black's Black City & Opelucid City. :( Prefer White's exclusives though, so it sorta works out!

I liked White more, mostly because of Zekrom, but I also really enjoyed white forest, until everyone left and everything disappeared lol

The only thing I like about Black better is Drayden. Such a bad ass lol

I chose White because I'm subconsciously racist. for Reuniclus and Braviary, and because I like Zekrom more. When I originally got the game, I wanted White Forest for exclusive captures, but in retrospect, Black City is a lot more beneficial post-game.

I wanted White from the very beginning but my friend wanted it as well so I ended up getting Black. I like the White exclusives better... in fact, a lot better. Reuniclus line > Gothitelle line.

I chose White, because Zekrom looked cooler than Reshiram, and I liked Reuniclus over Gothitelle.
Competitively, Reshiram is better. So yeah...
I'd probably like Black City better. But I haven't been in it before.

What game did you choose? I chose White version.

What is the reason for choosing that game? Officially, it's because I really wanted a Houndour; subconsciously, however, it may have been me not wanting to be a racist.

Do you like White Forest or Black City better? I hate Black Cityso much that White Forest wins this, even though I've never set foot in it evereverever.

Which legend do you think is better? Despite the fact that I kinda wish I bought White version, I do prefer Reshiram to Zekrom. I guess I just like its design somewhat more, and it wasn't horrible to use.

What game did you choose? White.

What is the reason for choosing that game? Didn't really like Reshiram or getting Black because it didn't seem as cool.

Do you like White Forest or Black City better? Don't like either very much. But I guess White Forest because it's very open.

Which legend do you think is better? Zekrom, he just looks so much more battle ready and built to pummel Reshiram.

I decided to pick up White since I had preferred Zekrom over Reshiram at the time they were first revealed. Over time, I stuck by my decision due as I liked White's version exclusives more. I've never really kept a save file long enough after beating the game to decide whether I liked White Forest or not, and I've never bothered looking up how Black City works, so I suppose either don't really make a huge difference to me.

I picked White because I liked Zekrom a lot more then Reshiram, I also liked white forest more then Black City. But after a while it felt like white forest was just a forest filled with easy-to-catch-in-SoulSilver-Pokemon's (at least the one that lived in my white forest), while in Black City you can buy evolutionary stones and such.

I prefer Black because I like Black's collection of Pokemon better than that of White's. White Forest is a lot cooler than Black City however.

I got white because I liked Zekrom's design a bit better. I love them both, I just liked Zekrom a tiiny bit better. And the name. Lol. And my brother got Black. We always get the opposite of each other. It's too bad he never got Soul Silver though..

I chose the Black Version, because Reshiram more appealed to me than Zekrom.
Concerning Black City or White Forest, I have to say that I'm disappointed of both... Maybe it's because I was expecting a very amazing place, and finally they are not that awesome... I guess I prefer Black City anyway, battles are better.
