I am saddened by lack of N in trailers. He was awesome, dammit!

[up][up]In contrast to Hilda, which is one of the most badass names ever.grin

Ergo, Hilda is more manly and badass than that pansy Hilbert.

[up][up] If he's in the game (and I'm sure he will be), they're most likely not trying to spoil anything.

[up] (buzzer noise)

Incorrect. Hilbert is actually inherently cooler if he's on equal footing with a girl with a vastly better-sounding name. tongue

And speaking of Hilda, someone playing as her should have an all Fire and Ice team so we can call her "Hot Ice" Hilda. wink

Funny how you guys consider "Hilda" to be badass, at least. I guess it's the association with valkyries or so?

[up] He can't be inherently cool if his coolness is conditional! tongue

No, it's not clearly anything. Don't you think that if that was Hilbert and Hilda, they would've been clearly marked as such?
In fact, right next to the boy, I noticed the magazine said 新主人公... which means "new protagonists".

There is an in story reason for N not to be in the game too, especially since it is a "sequel".

I don't see how they look "younger", the sprites are the same size as the Black and White Sprites. Larger sprites were the argument for Hilbert being older than Red, you can't have it both ways. The difference in Hilda I chalked up to expression. Here she's going for "Generic Cuteness" instead of "Duchess Of Hazard". Hair color maybe, but I'm not convinced.

It is true, the Black/White's code only has 1-2 blank slots rather than 130+, but an influx of new monsters would be nice. The new paired games always came with new batches of Wild Pokemon up to this point and they weren't compatible with the old pairs. New Pokemon would be worth it to me, there are plenty of story explanations for new Pokemon to show up after 2 years. If there are only 9 new Pokemon in the form of new starters then I'll probably still buy it but I had hopes for 130.

You haven't seen the trailer in which the PC is choosing a starter, have you.

[up][up] G/S/C was a direct sequel to R/B/Y and most of the cast from the latter returned in some capacity, so I fail to see your point. And even some of the more recent titles had cameos from characters hailing from different regions.

Also, I'm talking about the character artwork. Not the sprites. The artwork. And did Fawriel's words mean nothing to you?

I missed the post with the kanji. I really do hope they are cousins or something then. That goes beyond Only Six Faces.

New monsters? So early? And it's the same region, too.

A little dry.
...since when have characters drawn in an anime style or whatever you call it been recognized solely from facial features?

the face is usually pretty damn featureless except for the shape of the eyes and eyebrows. and im fairly sure pokemon was not an exception. and how exactly do you compare height? but yeah, hair: different, clothes: drastically different. thats a redesign that i cant say has ever happened in pokemon.

also two things to note: the BW 2 designs are in a different art style than the original game designs, so the eyes arent actually the same, and if you put the two designs next to each other it becomes increasingly obvious that the new pc had like, twice the bust size of hilda.

so im pretty sure even without the kanji thing, it was fairly clear that too much has changed for them to actually be the same characters. as for them looking younger than the previous pc's...im gonna put that one down to the art style shift and that the male designs look very reminiscent of a kids show i cant quite put my finger on...

Actually, Tarsen, I'm pretty sure it's the same guy (Ken Sugimori) doing the artwork. The art style in B/W2 is nigh-identical to the style B/W showed; it's just minor features such as eyes which are different. And seeing as how Sugimori's style changed drastically over the course of the series (compare Gens I and II to III, IV, and V), I'm willing to bet that would account for such small changes in the first place.

And not to sound perverted, the new female PC isn't that much bigger than Hilda.

ah.

well you see my point tho right? art shift or not, they dont actually have the same eyes.

and i dunno, looks twice as big to me. then again it might be the angle since im coming to this conclusion most entirely from the shadows cast.

But yeah, I agree. At the very least, the eyes are different.

67 MrMallard23rd Apr 2012 12:47:09 AM from Australia, mate
I'd like to say, just quickly, i'm not happy with a straight-up sequel to Black and White. Johto had the decency to throw in Kanto as a "hey, enjoy" sort of thing after the main game was over, but Black and White is going right out of it's way to say "THESE ARE SEQUELS. YOU CAN HAVE MORE BLACK AND WHITE NOW.".

Not trying to start an argument, not spreading my rabid anti-new-pokemon ideaology, i'm just stating my opinion. Carry on.

Which reminds me; the one time I decide to just wait for the third version, Gamefreak goes and does this.:/ I'm not unhappy mind you, just a little peeved.

They did say it to 5 years to develop the story so it's likely this was planned out before DPP
