View Full Version : B/W: Opelucid City

February 23rd, 2012, 5:44 AM
Hey guys, I want to share with you a location in Unova that is home to the 8th Gym - Opelucid City! There are lots of differences between versions in this beautiful location.

This is what you'll see if you're playing Black Version...

...and this is what you'll see if you're playing White Version.

Also, the music is different in both versions:

Black Opelucid City theme

White Opelucid City theme

On top of that, the Gym Leader is also different.

In Black you will face the wise mayor, Drayden!

In White you will face the girl with the big hair, Iris!

So guys, give your thoughts on Opelucid City with this little form...

Which physical appearance do you like better?
Which version's music do you prefer?
Do you like Drayden or Iris?

Which physical appearance do you like better? White's. Black's is just too high tech that I feel like there needs to be more nature involved. I wouldn't be able to stay somewhere without trees
Which version's music do you prefer? White. It's so much nicer in its composition and sound. Me gusta.
Do you like Drayden or Iris? I like Drayden more just because he's cool and I wanna be just like him! I don't know, Iris just doesn't fit that 8th gym leader thing..

Which physical appearance do you like better? White, by far. Black's design looks like it was rushed and the gym and Pokémon Center look completely out of place.
Which version's music do you prefer? I like both of the version's music, but White's music is a lot more appropriate for a town / city. Black's kind of sounds like something you'd find at a game corner.
Do you like Drayden or Iris? Definitely Drayden as a gym leader. Even when the information that Iris was a gym leader in White, I disliked it. She just doesn't seem to be a gym leader to me, much less the 8th gym leader, especially with the incident at Castelia City. I can't explain it. I also dislike her as a character.

So is this a "Which version do you like better" thread or is it a serious thread? Anyway, Iris annoys me so much that I'm not even bothering to watch the B/W anime. That's all I have to say.

In any game, the gym looks always out of place. However, disregarding that, I guess I choose white, since it just feels so nostalgic.

I really don't care much about music, since I normally mute my DS when playing. LOL.

Drayden always ftw. I mean, iris does not look like a gym leader, whereas Drayden oozes with it leadership aura.

Wow, I didn't notice HOW absolutely opposite the city is in the different versions.
