    After four generations, I really think the time has come for us to stop keeping the two games together. The differences are more apparent than ever this generation and the last thing we need is White players and Black players rioting due to their incompatibility. The Black culture is very violent with the strong presence of Black City's strong trainers and emphasis on using money gained via fights to purchase rare items. I fear for the timid White players who are more used to capturing pets as prized trophies and having treasure hunts for sport in White Forest.

    I vote we have two boards that are separate, but equal in resources. Keep an eye on those who post in Black City though.

    100% agree. This should have been the precedent for a long time now. Black players do NOT need to talk to White players; I would go as far as to split Smogon into bl.smogon.con and wh.smogon.com.

    We just need "a black forum" and "a white forum".

    are the two forums really going to be equal in resources? we've seen this happen before...it sounds like a perfect solution on paper, but one half ends up getting the short end of the stick.
