    Please, for the love of god, have an ACTUALLY pokemon league like the programs in this one. It would actually be challenging for once!

    I can't wait for POKEMON BLACK and POKEMON WHITE to come out. :D iv been waiting sooo long i mean i still need to wait another year… BUT ANYWAY I'm just so exited… by the way does anyone know when is the exact date its coming out? oh and there is a way to get Darkri on youtube but i haven't tried it yet it cause it takes a risk and I'm unsure of it… oh and i herd on a website there are going to be 101 NEW Pokemon or so i herd… and NEED to put more evaluation for Eeve like steel, ghost,rock/ground,and sky "sky might be hard lol" oh i have an idea for a third evaluation for Rapidash should be like a fire winged like Pegasus MWAHAHAHAHA "cough" sorry sometimes happens. well that's it for the idea making "for now" well bye!

      Oh yeah, the pegasus is a great idea, really hope they do that now!!! :P

    • Arctikninja

      the pegasus sounds awesome, but with darkrai, why not get an Action Replay? There's nothing wrong with using one for that sort of thing, it's just when you use invincibility and all that when you become a cheater – for daimond i used it for all my event legendaries, like arceus and shaymin

      I don't think there getting that deep, there just spitting out another generation to make a heap of money, they are even running out of clever names, Black and white really? Why not continue with the whole gem thing, like topaz or opal, or amethyst? But you may be right and they could be spitting out some serious philisophical ideals at us through subtle messages.

    in pokemon black and white there should be light and virus types… there should also be a game where you get to join team rocket, team magma, etc ang get to catch pokemon with traps… also you should be able to hold titles after u beat the pokemon leage u get to hold a title and any player within a mile can challenge u and u can rechallenge them

      light would be cool, but time would be better – think, you could use a move where it reverses the battle, so that it goes back a few turns, and then you can do something else!

      this is a kids game originaly, they dont even kill or even appear hurt just an hp bar or a faint, that's a good idea but maybe something a little watered down.

    oooh, so excited! They should make electric types stronger and not so many grass and bug types. Also definately, DEFINATELY more dragon types.
    They sould also give the characters better background stories, so your not always the goody-two-shoes little kid, and a better ending cause i was kinda dissapointed with the ending in hg/ss, i was sorta expecting a bit more of a celebration cause well your now the best trainer in the region but when you beat the guy it was just over kinda suddenly.

    I think pokemons strong foundation is crumbling, so they'd better bring some fresh ideas in this game, like hg/ss it was the same story but they added new elements like the poke'walker, and the safari items.

    Did you know that there is a rumor that they are replacing Ash in the Anime? So that means Ash won’t be going to the Isshu Region.

    I know. When I got Pokemon SoulSilver Version, I hated it. Then, I heard about Pokemon Black and White Versions coming out, so I sold my Pokemon SoulSilver Version.
    PS – the third version of Pokemon Black and White Versions is gonna be called Pokemon Gray Version.
