    3 vs. 3 battles! ZOMG! My 2 on two strategy will become amazing. I have so many combinations now I can use. Not to mention beefing up my guys. I have been a crazed two on two trainer. All of my teams are designed with that in mind. Wether effects, effects beefing each other up. I loved using my Flygon Tyranitar Combo! Sanstorm with earthquake all the way! I wish 2 on two was standard again like on the Game Cube. I agree completely being on the 3DS. It makes so much scene.I really want it too be. I know most people like the first 150 only but after being in pokemon forever. I like everything. I know people will hate me for it but every one has a place in my heart. The new region looks the coolest yet, and it is huge! The bridge could lead to an alternate world, like in Twilight Princess or Meteriod Prime 2. I still want the game only on the pack. I don't see Nintedno using the computer as a primary element in any game. They are not microsoft or sony in that regard. Maybe uploading for stats but nothing beyond that. Have you seen the pokeearth map on serbii? It has where everything is. This will probably be at the upper right of the world. I do want the GTS to trade for stuff you have not seen in this iteration. That was a bad limitation in the old games. I think the 3DS will be out sooner than we think. It does look done and ready for them to ship. I think they are just waiting for developers to finish their games. Thanks for the Casts!

    3-3 seems to me like it would be more of a team effort . You're gonna want to make a team where every poke's weaknesses are covered by another's strengths. You gotta support each other! TEAM WORK!

    It looks like the second evolutions of the water and grass starters were leaked on serebii, plus another one.

    the 3v3 is going to turn the whole system towards an older final fantasy battle system attacker, team buffer, enemy buffer. at least to the devotEs

    Whatever Game Freak decides to add to B/W, I don't mind. I've a tendency to not question what people do. 3-on-3 battles, I can see great Pokemon combinations for that already. Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Entei, Raikou, Suicune, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, I wonder how many new Pokemon there's going to be. The number is certainly something to admire. If it gets to #666, there HAS to be a "Devil" Pokemon, because there's already a "God" Pokemon, Arceus.

    What do you bet that he sarcophagus one is an evolution of spirtomb?
  • crazyer - June 30, 2010 5:03 p.m.

    @carolyn you said on the pod cast that their lookd like a little town that looked divied and the bride would change your charicture it could be like a ying and yang world kinda like how platinum had distortion world
  • axelgarcia1 - June 30, 2010 3:27 a.m.

    the 3 on 3 is kinda overkill...
  • noofer7 - June 29, 2010 6:36 p.m.

    Whoa, the sarcophagus's name actually translates to "Death Coffin"? Lazy, Game Freak. Very lazy. I don't really like the concept of using all these inanimate objects as Pokemon. Especially Gear. Couldn't they at least come up with a better name for that thing? Sometimes it really does seem like they can't come up with any original pokemon anymore. And how about those 3-on-3s? They could be really fun, but I see a lot of potential for some annoying crap and general pointlessness.

    I already hated 2 on 2 battles and they just made it worse. Also, the Pokemon keep getting worse.

    3v3 looks cool but I will wait until their is footage of it before I judge them
  • Robusken - June 29, 2010 5:11 a.m.

    The new pokes....just eh. Maybe I just need time to get used to them.
  • Emerald13 - June 29, 2010 4:03 a.m.

    3 on 3 will be interesting however there will not be a lot of it. I personally love 2 on 2 battles but none of the games lets you have a lot of them- which sucks. There needs to be a toggle functions which allows you to select your prefered style of battling when you go to rebattle trainers. Also bring back the vs seeker! And keep the Pokemon walking behind you! At least let it be a toggle fuction.

    That place in the middle of the map is where the crescendo of the story is going to happen, I call it, actually in the trailer, someone said the man looking at the crown thing, who we both believe to be the main villain, is going to use it as a torch, or something as that would fit with Reshiram
  • StriderHoang - June 29, 2010 3:25 a.m.

    my gut reaction of 3v3 was, "So we did 2v2 so let's step it up for shock value!" Sounds like a clusterfuck, but I'm not doubting it anyways. Actually, maybe 3v3 would means more interesting combinations of offense and defense, like maybe two focus on attacking while the other focuses on defensive tactics.

    This website posted the detailed image of Isshu as well and there's a rumor that you can fly on an airplane to another region after completing Isshu??? http://pokemonblackandwhite.net/2010/06/28/isshu-region-map-updated-ability-to-travel-to-another-region-in-pokemon-black-and-white/
  • BlindMarksman - June 29, 2010 2:25 a.m.

    Excited about the new pokemon and amazed they can still bust up great ones, but, for the love of god, can they PLEASE STOP making pokemon based on objects!?!? That sarcoffagus thing is just... Wrong.

    hey, you guys do realize that the character crossing the bridge is the MALE hero, right?
