As soon as my Best Buy opened on the Sunday release, my boyfriend and I rushed over to buy our pre-ordered PokÃ©mon Black and White games, the first game I had actually taken the time out to pre-order in some time. I slipped PokÃ©mon White into my DS as soon as we got home, only stopping to rest when I had to go to work and to sleep. I finished it within the week of getting it, but it was not a triumphant feeling like I had felt in the past. Instead, I felt rather neutral about the whole thing, which made me wonder if the game itself had changed, or if I had changed.
I had not played the SoulSilver and HeartGold generation. I bought it, but was rather bored since it was the exact same thing as the regular Silver game from the Game Boy. I waited and waited until Black and White was released to really get my dose of PokÃ©mon. I bought the White version, so I will reference to that version for this article. Warning: there will be many spoilers. If you have not already played the game, I would suggest reading this later.
