BlackWhite Black and White Promotional Mall Tour in US

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.

Why do they ignore the rest of the world? The US is the only country other than Japan that gets these awesome events, it saddens me.

    Celebi is at TRU or Gamestop (I forget which one), but no announcement over whether it'll be in Canada too or not.
    Well if its at any of them in America, I might be able to convince my parents to drive 3 hours to Fargo...

      Ugh, none of those stops are anywhere near me. That's the problem with doing a tour in the US; you need, like, 85545432 stops to account for the shear size of the country. =/

      I suppose it's a good idea in general...I keep getting the impression from people I personally know that they hadn't heard Black and White were even in the making until I mention it. It'll spread the word about the game to the fans who haven't heard yet, right?

      I know, you never see any of the events, championships, parades ect. In places like Europe, only in America.

        Yay, there's one in Phoenix?! *writes this down in the off-chance I'll get to go* I'd like to attend, but it'd be awkward asking my parents. They'll most likely just say I'm too old.

          It's kinda strange that they would continue the promotion after the games were released.
          You're right it is kind of odd at it goes beyond March 6th...
          We don't even have the event in my state but they do have it in the state up north...so I'm guessing I won't attend it

            Hey theres one in Dallas!! Although I dont see the point of me going even though Dallas is right down the road for me. I will already have purchased my Pokemon Black by the time the Tour hits Dallas. But since there is going to be a Pokemon Center there might as well go :D

              I just think it's kind've a bust that there won't be any special events at the tour. I guess wifi's destroyed the good ol' days of the kiosks and cartridges. Now we can't have rumors of shiny 10 ANIV Pokemon running around.

              Kansas never gets things like this... I probably wouldn't go anyway though.

                Damn, looks like my Seattle home is going to get busy.

                Might as well pay a visit.

                I do enjoy going to the different events just to see what is going on, even if I am the only old one there! XD
                But I would have still liked to have seen this come outside of the US.

                  Something similar has been announced Canada. Unfortunately they'll only go to two locations, Burnaby, BC and Mississauga, ON.

                    Nvm! I found out that they are going to do one in Canada! :D
                    One in Ontario, and one in B.C! Yes!
                    And it's at MetroTown.. Man, finally Canada gets something!

                    It'd be nice if there was more information on exactly what this was about, because I live pretty close to the stop in Burnaby, but I'm going to be busy most of that weekend. Maybe if someone that was going to the one in Seattle or Cleveland and could tell us what was actually there, it would be helpful for everyone!

                    I kind of want to make it for the Mississauga one, but and online friend is coming to visit that week(end) and I think I'll be in Waterloo rather than Toronto then. ;_; But I'm glad Canada is getting something, even if it's just the two cities. :D

                      The ONE time they start promoting Pokemon in Canada, they go to to only two places, and neither of which I'm close to. Like, why wouldn't they come to Edmonton?

                        The Mall Tour thread is still alive, so why have one just for posting pictures and one for discussing the tour as a whole? Because no doubt, if people post pictures, they'll be discussing them.

                        DARN! I live in Alberta! I won't be getting it. It seems Pokemon doesn't do much within Canada. Well, Raimin City's English name is Nimbasa City. Meh. This tour confirmed something, at least.

                        At least I'm not alone. That place is 450 KM away from me.

                        There's one not too far away, I feel lucky now haha. Only bad thing is is that Black and White have already been released by the time the tour comes over here. I probably won't go.

                          I can't make it to the one in Jacksonville, FL because its 4 hours away. But I plan on going to the one in Texas when I visit my fiance over spring break. I'm SO excited.

                          I can't wait to take cosplay pics (I'll be in my White/Touko cosplay with my talking Tsutarja (that should arrive this week or next..) and my fiance will be cosplaying N carrying a Zorua plush.

                          I can't wait to take pics with other cosplayers (if any), the cast that dresses as the starters, the life size blow up Reshiram and Zekrom! I can't wait to do the scavenger hunt! I can't wait to watch to the Zoroark movie and get the special TCG card for watching it, and that green screen picture with my fiance with Raikou, Entei , Suciune, Zorua, and Zoroark on it. I can't wait to buy the 12" Reshiram and Zekrom plushies, the starters Pokecen dolls, the Reshi/Zekm 6" figures, a Tsutarja t-shirt.....

                          I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!! Ever since I saw everyones pictures from yesterday mall tour, I just can't even think about anything else!!!!!!!!!!!

                          It's going to be so fun!!!!!!!!

                          Not really sure if this is relevant or not, but then again I didn't know where else to post this, so

                          If you noticed, on the Pokemon Black & White official website Canadian. You'll notice at the 'What's New!' section there's a sampling event, meaning, comencing 11th Feb - 21st Feb, you'll have the chance to play the games early. I woudn't be surprised if this happened in America either, just unfortunate that nothing like that happens here in Europe, ah well, not that long to go anyway, about 22 days, plus we still get the games early so hey!

                          Didn't notice this hours ago. :(
                          Anyway, belongs in mall tour thread because it's pretty much the same (and was announced earlier, but this gives more detail with the actual link).

                          Still want Australia to get something. ;;
