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.

    I made the mistake of buying Platinum early in Japanese. I couldn't barely play it, plus it took away all the fun since you don't understand it. I'll just wait for one I can read, lol.

      To be honest, I can't be bothered, knowing absolutely nothing about it.

        I will probably preorder a Japanese Black 2, since I got White in Japanese. There's always so many guides online even on the first day of coverage, plus it's not like I'll get the copy on release date, so I'll be fine. It'll be my third time importing as well, so no biggie. I'll wait till I have enough money though, which will probably be after either Easter or Mother's Day. Busiest days of the year at my job.

        I'm hoping to pre-order the English version of Black 2. I'm hoping to get both though it may not be possible. I can't understand Japanese so I'm better off waiting for the English version.I'm making a goal to have a job before the games are released so I can afford to pre-order.

        I preordered both earlier today! I was gonna take a photo of the receipt and show it to you but EB Games uses this odd faded ink so you can't really see anything

        In English by the way. I buy nothing whatsoever in anything other than English haha.

        Ive bought the games in japanese before and played through Black just fine in japanese. Im considering preordering the japanese versions for a few reasons, one being that I really dont want to wait and be left out among the people playing the games in japanese already and another because I have access to wi-fi and dream world events exclusive to Japan. You really dont need to understand japanese to play Pokemon Ive found. Plus there will be guides on Pokemon sites if I need help with moves and stuff. I just honestly want to play the games as early as possible.

        Just want to add now that I've got a glimpse of the games I may reconsider pre-ordering, with all the information, walkthroughs etc being released and having to wait another few months I'll probably get too eager to play it buttttttt I think I can last out.

        I want to be surprised by this game when I get it in English, unlike how I spoiled half of BW for myself by playing part of it in Japanese. I want this one to be a surprise from start to finish, aside from what I read online. I just don't want to play any of it until it's legally out in English.

        I've never pre-ordered any of the games in Japanese actually, I always wanted to wait till they were in English so I could enjoy them from start to finish like Drew said, and it's also not like I can't wait a bit longer haha, if it means that I'll just understand everything without needing guides and all that.

        I'll pre-order them when the pre-order for Game Stop goes up. I'm actually EXTREMELY excited for these games. More so than I was for Black and White when they were getting ready to come out. I like the main characters a lot more than I liked them in the originals, so I am legitimately excited for them. I think Generation V is going to replace Generation I was my favorite after these games are released. :P

        I already pre-ordered it through Play-Asia, I also got the fastest shipping they have.

        The last time I pre-ordered a game through Play-Asia (Pearl) I got it the day before the release date. I hope that happens again. o3o; Also bought a DSi LL

        Like Patchisou, I'm going to be waiting to pre-order from GameStop. AND I CAN'T WAIT. I never really bother to get Japanese versions to games, because it makes it less enjoyable for me. I mean, I can't understand what's going on in the game so why not wait and save the money? :p

          Idk. I want to get them as soon as possible, but I'd like to know what's being said, etc. I'm pretty sure I could advance through the game easily though. It's Pokemon, not rocket science.

          If I like what I see in the upcoming 'revealing of details' department, then yeah, I'll pre-order the Japanese version of Black.

            I'm considering pre-ordering from GAME, but I can't make up my mind! Do I want Black or White, both mascots look awesome and I can't decide which to get, I'll probably end up getting Black 2 though, since I have Black...

            It's actually quite funny to see the trend from a few years ago - people would say they were importing the games simply because they wanted to play it, and the story would be pretty "generic" so people would just guess what they were doing. They generally made it through the game but didn't understand a whole lot.

            This time, a lot of people are expressing that they wouldn't understand it and will preorder the English version.

            I'm personally importing it. I can certainly read it (with Kanji mode off) and understand what's happening, and for various reasons, I'm locked into the Japanese games anyway.

            I'm not too sure about pre-ordering right now. I mean, I'm definitely getting both - it's just I've don't really pre-order much anymore, and there's a GAME store around the corner, but I don't know if they'll stock B2/W2 due to the problems their currently in.

            I'll mostly likely just buy them in store somewhere. ;.;

            I won't bother pre-ordering the Japanese games though - it doesn't look like we're going to have to wait such a long time between releases this time anyway..

            I hadn't thought about pre-ordering it, but to be honest I may well do that. It'd probably be cheaper in the long run (I guess pre-ordering here means paying a little and then covering the rest once the game actually comes out). That and I'd be guaranteed a copy- although I've never, ever had a problem with a lack of available copies of a Pokemon game, so I'll have to think about it.
            EDIT: Actually I should say I definitely WON'T be pre-ordering from Play Asia. I'm all good with getting the Japanese ROM for a sneak peak while I'm waiting for the English version to come out, but I couldn't possibly play through the entire game in Japanese; I just wouldn't enjoy it, and I really want to, so I'm going to at least wait until you can pre-order the English editions.

            There is a BestBuy not too far from my hometown, so I think I'll preorder from the store and just pick it up the day it is released. I would do GameStop, but sometimes they can be a bit unreliable here.

              I likely won't bother with the Japanese version since, well, I'd prefer to be able to understand what's going on.

              I probably won't bother preordering the English version either and just and buy it on the day seeing as my local store is really close, and Pokemon games seem to be in stock more often than not.

              Speaking of preordering, I wonder what kind of gift we'll get for placing a preorder. I liked how we got figurines for HGSS and I think we should get Black and White Kyurem figurines this time around. They seem to be the best gifts, aha.

              or a Unova Pokémon plush which is highly unlikely, but I would love one

              Figurines would be pretty cool haha. If there's like protag figurines or anything I might consider pre-ordering I suppose. Or cute keychains or something.

              Figurines with the pre-orders would be awesome. or maybe little keychains of your choice from the main characters or major characters. I personally would like a little mini-plush of the rival. BestBuy usually has little extra stuff thrown in with it, so maybe I'll get a nifty little stylus or something.

              Hmmm maybe like figurines and a sticker page, or at least something small to add on the side so it isn't just figurines. PLUS ALL KIDS LIKE STICKERS and it might sway a few parents to pre-order :3
