Pokémon makes me make decisions

Infendo

With Pokémon Black/White coming in just a few short weeks,  I we all have some hard questions to ask ourselves. Do I go to the midnight launch?  Should I buy the strategy guide? Will I be able to catch ‘em all? However, none of these questions are as important as the one we all must answer when we get to the front of the line at our local Gamestop: Black or White?

Anyone who has played a Pokémon game knows that there are always two versions of the game. If you want to catch every single Pokémon you either need to buy both versions, or trade up with a friend who has the other game. True PokéManiacs will spend hours with nothing but a Juice Box and a belt full of Pokémon trying to find every last creature in the game.

This generation of Pokémon adds a new element to this idea of splitting one game into two.  Each version has it’s own area that is exclusive to its game.  If you own Pokémon Black, you and your Pokémon get to visit the Black City. While if your game happens to the White version, you can forget about that trip to the city and and instead are headed to the White Forest.

So how am I going to choose which game to get on March 6th?  Well I’ve got to say, the Black City look a lot like Tron so that’s probably where I’ll be headed. Aw but how crafty you are Nintendo, you must have known my girlfriend will need a copy as well.

Yes…you can have all my coins.  Two copies of Pokémon please.  Which version(s) is everyone  picking up?
