Pokémon Black and White is upon us!
Every couple of years Nintendo updates its beloved RPG franchise Pokémon. Black and White is considered the fifth generation in the series, and the latest (and probably last) iteration to be released for the Nintendo DS.
Among the new features this time around is the introduction of 3 on 3 matches, thus complicating combat in fun and exciting ways! Built on the same engine as the previous generation, Black and White looks a lot like Diamond and Pearl, but this new installment is perhaps the most polished yet. There are 153 new pokémon in this generation, bringing the grand total up to a whopping 646 now. C-gear is a new feature, allowing players to upload game data to internet and the player's computer.
