Believe it or not, pokemon is the biggest franchise in the world. So pretty much wherever you go, you'll find common ground with someone when you talk about Pokemon. And any Pokemon fan knows that one of the best consoles they can get to get to enjoy these games is a Nintendo DS. So today we'll talk about one of the most innovative and coolest entries in the franchise, Pokemon Black and Pokemon White. So, what is it that makes these two titles so unique and special? Well, let's talk about it!
About the game
The story that adorns the game is once again the same one that has been seen since the first title appeared on the old GameBoy: you play a young enthusiast who gets involved in an adventure that will lead him to become a true Pokemon master. On his way he will encounter a semi-religious organization, which this time is called Team Plasma, and which tries to separate all Pokemon from their trainers, thus freeing them from a supposed submission and slavery.
Our goal will be to thwart their plans while we go through the region of Thesselia, overcome the eight gyms to get the corresponding medals that provide us with new skills, beat the Pokemon Elite, and complete the registration of all existing pokemon in our pokedex.
But no game survives only on its story and plot, and you would never expect especially a Pokemon game to do that. But what does this generation of Pokemon games add to a formula that seems to grow at such a slow pace?
Well, for starters, there are many more types of pokemon than before, including some that have never been seen in the previous games. They added over 156 completely new pokemon in this entry, which takes the Pokedex to a total of 640 Pokemon.
There is also the fact that the battle system has been completely redesigned and for the first time, the Pokemon have animations during the battles. Even if this comes at the cost of visual performance, it's a nice touch.
What makes it different?
The combats are much more alive than in the previous games, even from the incredible Pokemon Platinum, and the beautiful Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver. And there are so many new Pokemon and even pokemon types and rebalancing in this game, that it will feel like learning to play Pokemon over again.
The differences between Black and White are more visible this time than in previous titles, as it goes beyond just some Pokemon availability, of course, that's still a thing here. Black and white have a lot of focus on its story, and how the player interacts with the world, and that's an interesting twist we'd like to see used more in Pokemon games.
Pokemon Black and White are some of the best games available for the Nintendo DS, and that's saying a lot actually, especially since there are so many games. Should you play this game? Absolutely, it's an incredible title, and you're sure to get hooked to it.
