Pokémon Black Version

released on Sep 18, 2010

Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version are the primary paired versions of Generation V.
Black and White follow the trends set up by previous games in the series. Two player characters (one male and one female) travel a new region, Unova, on their Pokémon journeys. This region is inhabited by various Pokémon, and unlike before, none of those available prior to Generation V can be obtained before completing the main story by defeating Team Plasma.
The games' names were revealed on the official Japanese Pokémon website on April 9, 2010, and scans from the subsequent issue of the magazine leaked the following day, April 10.
Pokémon Black and White are followed in 2012 by two sequels, Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, which are set two years after the events of Black and White. Black 2 and White 2 are the second and final paired versions of Generation V.

I didn't appreciate this game enough when I was younger (but I was also 9 years old so give me a break lol). The music is fantastic, the designs of people and places are some of the best, the battles looks so good, and the fantastic story. In the end, the game was only brought down by the new pokemon. In the end they made too many new pokemon and didn't go through an elimination round to get rid of some of the not so great designs (i'm not referring to the ice cream or trash bag btw). That doesn't effect my feelings on the game now but it did then; it was also the only pokemon game were I dropped my starter.

Think this is my favorite pokemon game. Many quality of life improvements, good pokemon selection, good story. Played on an emulator.

one of the very first video games ive ever played
