    Black 2 and White 2?

    So I assume no Grey/Gray?

    Also, do the games have any names?

    EDIT: I meant other than White 2 and Black 2. Should of mentioned that. My bad.

    Nintendo is quite genius. Why make one third version when you can make two? The game is due for June in Japan. I am not sure on platform. Doesn't make much sense to be DS again to be honest.

    I wasn't going to get the third game, but OMFG ITS FOR THE 3DS!!! I just need to wait (looks at calender) 13 months >_<

    Edit: June in Japan? that should shorten the wait by 3 months. Also, I hope the Reshiram form is Fire/Ice so sun teams can kill dragons

    Edit Again: It's NOT for the 3DS? I don't know how I miss read that... (Awkward Moment)

    It's for DS according to Masuda's Twitter. Not 3DS.

    I don't think Black 2 and White 2 will be in the 3DS, mainly because the original aren't.(although if it does, maybe it'll have a connection with the PokeDex app thingy for the 3DS?)

    Time for me to finally delve into Gen 5. Sucks how there's no definitive third version. :(

    Also, numbered sequels are lame.

    No way. That's disappointing. I'll take my pokemon however they choose to release it, but this would have been a great opportunity to bring pokemon to 3DS (besides the pokedex "game").

    Heck... they've never been this open about the "Milking cash" aspect of Pokémon before. Two new versions? They're toying with us. Cashing in on our addiction. They know it. We know it. What can we do? Not buying either would be unthinkable, but buyin them means giving in to their schemes. DILEMMA!!!

    *puts aside money*

    WHAT?!!!1???11

    I didn't see that shit coming. GF really does know how to troll. But the creativity of the names is lacking somewhat.

    Really disappointed that they're for DS and not 3DS. I'll still be buying them though

    Check out the logos (thanks to Solace):

    [​IMG]

    This might sound weird, but the red and blue underneath the titles look a bit like Ruby and Sapphire... They aren't really "fire and electric" like the 5th gen legendaries are. They look like little glowing red and blue crystals to me! Even though the 2's there are kind of throwing this idea off, it could be possible that these new games could somehow incorporate R/S! I will look forward to more information B)

    I would throw all of my money at the game if they brought back secret bases (I mean REAL secret bases. None of this underground and dreamworld crap)
