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.

    Well, it's not the best we've seen is it? I mean they are going back to basics, with plain Black and White and all that, but it doesn't seem as eye catching as it's predecessors. What's your take in it?

    I guess Black sort of looks good up close.

      Simple and good.
      I aren't going to complain about their packaging, the internal and the enjoyment of the game is more important.

        As Rilence said, it may be simple but it definitely looks nice.

        Also, why do we need to have detailed box art when the cover Pokemon look so detailed already? :3

          I love it. I'm more worried box art for North America, though, considering what they did with the logos for HG/SS. At the very least I would appreciate a grayscale Pokémon logo.

              I love the simplicity of it. DPPt's boxes were cool but seemed a little..overwhelming (especially Platinum's). Black and Whites stand out and just are....cool..I have no further words to describe the great sensation I get when I look at these boxes .

                The boxarts = win. They contrast really well with the backgrounds being a different color than the legendaries.

                    Well, I have to say, if I knew nothing of pokemon and was browsing the videogame section in walmart, and I saw this boxart, I would no doubt pick up the box and read the back. The simplicity only draws your eye to the pokemon, and their intricate details are beautious, and really really cool.

                      The boxart for these games looks sleek and sexy, just like my Wii.

                            It's interesting that Black's legend is White and White's is Black...

                            it used to be that the legends matched the color their version's name was.

                            And yes, Reshirom IS the legend of Black, and Zekrom IS the legend of White!

                            Translated it myself. They're not wrong.

                            Yeah, because an official site for a game is going to be wrong about their own game... ugh.

                              I'm going to be totally honest.

                              It's way better than the D/P/Pt boxart. Simplicity is usually a good thing.

                                  They are kinda bland to me compared to the amazing background detail of HG/SS, but then again, only very little main series game box arts had background detail, just the Sugimori stock art of the mascot plastered on with the Pokemon logo.......

                                    Box art is Box art. I could care less what they put on it. To be honest out of everything about the new games this is probably the thing I care the least about.

                                    Simple is fine. Plus a solid colored box may be a little more eye catching in a store surrounded by fancy covered boxes anyways.

                                      I aren't going to complain about their packaging, the internal and the enjoyment of the game is more important.
                                      I completely agree. The boxart could say, "These pokemon is good. Play Dem" with a stick figure and I wouldn't care as long as the game inside was good. (Oh sarcasm. I love thee.)

                                        I like it.
                                        Plain and Simple, just the way it should be, we don't need flashing colors on Box art, it is just a Box, y'know?
