  • It's good to see that this game won't be ruined by all of the moral ambiguity of the previous games. In Black and White you'll no longer have to make tough decisions like which Pokemon to leave at the day care where there are multiple choices with multiple correct answers.

    This is the direction that Pokemon has needed to take for a long time, it had begun all story with no actual Pokemon battles. Hopefully, this trend will infect the rest of the mobile market which has been known for sacrificing easy-to-pick-up gameplay for long and rich narratives.
