Black or White: Which Version will you get?

Postby Ryu Shoji » 01 Jun 2010, 18:31

*points to thread title*
After seeing Reshiram and Zekrom; I said Reshiram is my favourite, and my older brother said Zekrom was his. So when the games come out in the EU, I'll be getting Black and my older brother will be getting White.

However, when they come out in Japan, I'll be getting White, for coverage purposes.

I'll be waiting until they come out in Europe, since I'm not really that fond of not understanding the storyline, and thus kind of missing out on a lot of the funny comments, that the games consist of ^^

Now... For the topic, I'll be choosing White, simply because I like Zekrom that much the more. The only word I can find for it is "Awesome". The thing is, however, will the sprite look just as awesome? But... Well... Yeah, not much to say there, other than I hope they'll do a good job :]

About the in-game pokémon and their stats, I think Zekrom looks more Defense-stat-ish, and Reshiram looking more of a Special Wall, as well as attacker. I'm thinking something like this, thinking BASE STATS:

Reshiram:
HP: 100 | Atk: 95 | Def: 110 | Sp.Atk: 130 | Sp.Def: 140 | Spd: 110

Zekrom:
HP: 100 | Atk: 130 | Def: 140 | Sp.Atk: 85 | Sp.Def: 105 | Spd: 125

The way I see it, they will kind of be each other's weaknesses, so to speak. Zekrom looks more physically bulky, while Reshiram looks like sort of a Light God or something ^^
Anyone agreeing / disagreeing with my stat-assumptions? ^^

If Zekrom ends up like that,it will be broken.
125 base speed and an Outrage coming from a 130 base attack + a possible dragon dance,OHKO's everything.
I think both of them will be slower,as the only things that could possibly counter them,assuming the above stats,would be Mewtwo,Darkrai and Deoxys-F.

A fast physical dragon...Rayquaza was made slow for a reason,imo.

Slow and slow. With Extremespeed and 150 base attack I don't think slow is a reference to it. And I guess, now, when looking over Kyogre and Groudon, the stats I wrote are rather unlikely, as they'd then, except for the speed-part be weaker than those two. Possible, sure, but yet kind of lol-ish.

And umm... That would depend on whether if it's a different way, like, Reshiram being all defense, and Zekrom being all offense. Then, ultimately, they'd both counter and sort'a block eachother. Except defense always wins, given it can re-heal. :3

I can imagine something like:

Reshiram:
HP: 150 | ATK: 90 | DEF: 145 | Sp.ATK: 95 | Sp.DEF: 100 | Spd: 100

Zekrom:
HP: 100 | ATK: 150 | DEF: 100 | Sp.ATK: 145 | Sp.DEF: 95 | Spd: 90

In less technical terms...Reshiram will be more defensive and fast, while Zekrom will be more offensive and slow. That way, both of them will be powerful, but have downsides (like with Zekrom's speed being it's lowest stat, and even Reshiram having good speed could be a downfall for a more defensive Pokémon).

Espeed is not STAB,thus it needs a +2 boost to KO things before quickly getting killed by an Ice Beam.
Zek would be more powerful,with more speed and less attack than Rayquaza.

Looks a lot like:
Giratina:
HP: 150 | ATK: 100 | DEF: 120 | Sp.ATK: 100 | Sp.DEF: 120 | Spd: 90

So i doubt it.

I've heard that black will have the white poké on it's cover and vice versa so I'm not sure... Depends on what Pokémons are in it.
Languages I speak: Swedish (Native level), English (Very good level), Italian (Very good level at understanding, but poor writing skills) and a little German (Decent level, I'm studying it at school).

I´ll wait for the version exclusives to choose, which one I will get, if I´m going to get one of them.
