      The newest addition to the Nintendo Pokemon franchise is Black and White. While it lulls the unsuspecting fan into a sense of security that this will be yet another awesomely boring gotta-catch-em-all fest with a very enticing opening cut scene, the game has a few things that just tend to make this particular version the worst of the worst.

      First you have your starter pokemon, two of which being the ONLY two in the game that hardly make any sense at all besides a select few of others in the crowd. You can choose between fire-based bunny pig named Tepig, Snivy, a snake that looks like a pot leaf, or


      an otter that always sports the occasional derp face. As you go through the start of the game, just like any pokemon game, you pick your starter and your rival picks the opposite of you(go figure). You then set out on your journey to catch the next batch of failures that you come across which, in repition to the older games, include a bird, some type of element-less one, and a few others.

      The only good thing I have to say about this game is the storyline blew me away. Instead of just having some sort of hackneyed excuse for a plot story, they actually dwell a bit deeper this time in hopes of not making you fall asleep while you are trying to train your pokemon. You now have a challenge. Ironically, your true rival is the head of this “evil” organization that wants to free the pokemon rather than catch and train them. Seeing as you still have to battle your way through the peons and rejects as you go on your journey to the top makes the situation all the more hypocritical. The other thing that excited me is these guys wear chain mail, as if you were waling around in the fifteenth century. While they enjoy their mutton and stoning people for keeping their pokemon as ...

      friends, their leading council however can teleport where ever they want. So as they are both conflicting the century innovations between themselves you have a rival ideally named ‘N’(for lack of a better name I suppose) that constantly tries to sway you about the idea of pokemon being free rather than made to battle like circus animals. In all honesty, at first I thought he was a pedophile.

      Like all pokemon games, once you beat the evil organization and attain all your badges and beat the champions the game is left open-ended. In this sense, you can go and train your pokemon to ungodly strengths and have them battle your

      friends to compare ego sizes. However, as soon as I wiped the remaining competition I put the game down and went back to one of the older versions, back when the pokemon actually made a little bit more sense rather than spirits that just possessed regularly inanimate objects. I only hope that in the future my kids don’t play this game then grab some tools and start fighting each other as their imagination tells them ‘That’s not blood, it’s a hyper beam’. The only thing I have to say, all in all, about this game to nintendo is: Really, Nintendo? Really?
