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.

^ The official translation is city. It was on the US website, I believe.

Asper also means rough or uneven. So that could have something to do with a city being rougher than a town? I think the cloud/tree is more likely. I'm happy we get to start from a city, I just hope that there's more of a reason to come back to it. Otherwise, I dunno. It's just a cool gimmick.

    The Aquarius loves a party. Anytime, anywhere is their motto. It is not unlikely that an Aquarius will consider a wake a good place to meet chicks. Aquarians love to be naked. It is even better if they are naked and crocked. Froot Loops is a very Aquarian cereal. So is Rice Krispies, since it will engage in a friendly chat with the Aquarian as he or she is eating breakfast. Count Chocula is off-limits, however. It belongs to the Scorpios. Aquarians use the phrase "Dude, man..." frequently when describing philosophical concepts. Aquarians have out-of-body experiences on a daily basis. If you are talking to an Aquarian and he or she zones out, consider the conversation hopeless. He or she is talking to the guy three feet away from you. Aquarians are fun because they channel people. Plus, if you tell them to, they will run around naked. Aquarians like astronomy because they've been to all those places. If you want to know what the food is like on Saturn, ask an Aquarius. Aquarians can allow themselves every possible vice on the planet, and don't think twice about it. That is why they piss everyone else off. They are cosmically entitled to do this.

      Asperita is such a nice name. I like that it's a city, maybe it will actually have a Poke Center now....

      Well, this is a sequel, so they might just change things up a bit because this isn't square one anymore, and it's CONTINUING the story.

      There is a Center, now! Which makes me very excited. c:
      And I pretty much agree with droomph. This isn't some humble little town anymore in a humble little region. Things have happened, people have moved on, this place needs to be juiced up a bit, and what better way to do that than with the characters beginning in a city?

      Are you guys really still in denial about the starting area being a city?

      I mean, even to the point that the fact it's been localised as a city isn't enough? (And yes, it's being localised as a city. No doubt, because it was always a city.)

      ^Exactly! Accept it as a city! It's going to be translated into a city. It has all of the requirements of being a city. It is indeed a city. Which I don't understand why everyone is so angry about that. D:
      Each game is about changing something in the Pokemon world, and one of those chains this time around is the starting place of your character is a city. Why is that so horrible? I find it amazing that I can finally trade out one of my Pokemon for my flier after I beat the E4 right in my hometown, as opposed to fighting off hundreds of Patrats just to get to Accumula and then to just fly out of there as well. Plus the option of getting Full Restores and Ultra Balls from the Center near your home is pretty boss, too.

        City people! The bright lights, the busy hustle! No hillbillies! (No offense rural people) Every time I started up my a game I expected a Miltank to leap at my sprite. Or the random Zigzagoon to ambush us. Poor Prof.Birch...
        Anyways... Asperita city (that's the name, right?) seems like nice place to start. No enclosing forests or rabid Pokemon in sight, right? Hopefully, this city will have some new, unique features as Aquarius1997 said. Its our hometown! homecity! We need a reason to visit it! And don't give me the whole "I wanna see mom!" reason. Our homecity is supposed to be awesome. At the very least a Game Corner/Casino should be in the City. Or a necessary building. Like a Pokemon Center! (Kudos to Jellicent♀ and Zayphora)
        Maybe the Professor's Lab will look like an actual Lab as opposed to the large, imposing building. I haven't seen the artwork for our house, yet. It better be an epic crib that I would want to pointlessly walk around in.

        I like your thinking and i agree completely, with the new city coming up its sure to have something facinating to catch everybodys eye

          Didn't they say that the hometown only had the Trainer School and a Pokemon Center? I don't think there is anything else in the city. Its pretty small when they showed it in the previews. Lancousa Town is larger than it from what I've seen.

          I don't mind the idea of starting in Asperita City. I'm just glad I'll be able to beat the Pokémon League with a Pokémon without fly without having to run to the next town/city (usually finding some annoying wild Pokémon along the way) to use the PC.

            People were seriously getting their knickers in a twist over starting in a town or a city? Jeez. Lighten up... It's certainly a nice change, I'll give it that, and the added benefit of more stuff to - hopefully - do in the beginning is also a plus.
