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 Black 2 & White 2.

      None, ah ah, I prefer the french name, Unys
      No but seriously, between the two, I prefer Unova. It sounds a little weird but Isshu is even worse... I definitely prefer the other region names, be it Japanese or English, these new ones aren't really good I think.

          Unlike both names because my sister's name is Nova and Isshu sounds really cool. Someone on the forums earlier made a joke about Isshu because it sounds like issue lol.

          I just call it the "5th gen region." Isshu doesn't appeal to me, but Unova makes me think of this:


          Early '70's Chevrolet Nova. Every time I hear that name Unova, the Chevy Nova comes immediately to mind. Not that it's a bad thing, though, that car was awesome, but I find it weird that I'm associating a Pokemon region with an automobile that hasn't been manufactured in over 20 years...

            This topic has too many "isshu"s. :P

            But yeah, I like Unova better by far. I find Isshu doesn't really flow off my tongue and its not a combination of syllables that you find together a lot in English.

            I really loved Isshu! Especially when making puns out of it. I guess you could make some puns out of Unova as well, but it isn't as cool imo. Still both are great names, but I guess Unova puts more meaning for the region, whereas I have no idea what Isshu is supposed to mean or relate to New York.

            I dislike Unova, but I don't neccesairily prefer Isshu. I mean, if I had to pick one, then yeah, Isshu. I think Unova sounds waaaay too modernized. It reminds me of a power plant or something. At least Isshu sounds somewhat classic.

              I disliked Unova at first after hearing the news of the english name for the region, but it's not as a big deal to me anymore. I wouldn't mind it being Isshu or Unova.

                Isshu? Need a tissue? Unova? SUPAHNOVA! Lol I like them both, they did a good job with the English name choice.

                  I called it Isshu until the English name came out. Simple. You got an Isshu with that?

                    Both. It doesn't really matter to me. Sometimes I say Isshu and sometimes I say Unova.

                    A lot of my friends say Isshu is an Isshu. :-P

                    Unova is a cool name! Thanks English translators!

                    I'm looking forward to this amazing beast of a region, Castelia almost looks like a real city.

                      Unova is the worst region everything name ever. I still call it Isshu.

                      I probably would have preferred if they had kept Isshu. I remember the trouble with pronouncing Unova when it was first revealed. I've gotten used to it though (like pretty much everything else that I didn't like to start with). Unova still sounds like more of a Pokemon Ranger region to me.

                      Words with friends doesn't approve of Unova.

                        Well I know i had trouble originally adjusting to the change but know i am sooo used to Unova and I think it does sound cooler.

                          I reckon there both really good, but I like Unova better....
                          I allways pronounce it wrong though....

                            Personally, I didn't care when the name was changed. Both names roughly originate from the same word/phrase if I'm correct.
                            It's also interesting that Nintendo/Game Freak decided to give each region of the world a different name; I found that a good idea.

                            Oh, and I find Unova slightly over Isshu...since that what's it's named in the USA.

                              I don't really care about what it's called. Either way it seems fine to me.

                                  Either one, but im more used to Unova, cause i like in the good old US of A. And Isshu sounds like Issue, as is issue with something, in this case the name.

                                    We're wasting valuable time complaining about the region's name when we could be complaining about the English pokemon names! Where's my Smugleaf?

                                      I prefer the name Unova. At first I was so used to the Japanese names of everything. But then the US release changed that. So Now Unova is mah thing.

                                      I honestly don't care anymore. Isshu was a nice name and I was a little bothered in the beginning when they had changed it from that, but Unova is neat as well, and it has a nice ring to it.

                                      While Unova is a better name and gives more meaning to the region, you gotta love making puns out of Isshu. That was fun for me, at least. u_u

                                      I agree with BinaryPeaches though, at first I was a little annoyed and questioned why they chose to change the region name, but hey, it could have been a lot worse.
