been replaying black2 again, this time using a tepig. no, sadly, she’s not shiny, but i did wonder what the shiny form of emboar was. and holy crap does it look awesome. had to draw it. it’s going on the ever-growing list of shinies i want.
don’t tell me Gen V was the worst pokemon generation because you didn’t have an anti hero fall in love with you and confess his feelings for you and is confirmed to be searching all across the world for you two years later in other generations like what more do you need
After all these years I still don’t get why Pokémon White is canon/perceived as canon. I mean, To me Pokémon Black seems more like the canon game than White ever did. In Pokémon Black the protagonist gets Reshiram while N gets Zekrom and to me it just seems more logical that way.
N getting Zekrom is more logical to me is because Zekrom is the Pokémon of Ideals. Throughout the whole game you see N chasing his ideals. He wants to get this perfect world where Pokémon are free from Trainers. He want to get this world where Pokémon are free and happy. He wants to change the world into his ideal world.
The protagonist/player getting Reshiram fits better into the story because of the fact that Reshiram is the Pokémon of Truth. The whole game the player tries to stop N, To let him see that Pokémon do love their trainers, To let him see that the world he’s trying to create isn’t going to be perfect, To let him see the truth.
But that’s just how I feel about this. I have played Pokémon Black so I may be a bit biased but yeah. Feel free to tell me how you think about this!
I still can’t believe it’s been 5 years! The time the hype was at its peak for these games still feels fresh to me.
These are probably my favorite pair of games out of all the core series games–an awesome follow-up to Black/White’s story (especially great when you use Memory Link!), and having a whole load of content, from main story to post-game. A perfect balance of story and gameplay!
Without delving into spoiler territory, I drew this as a representation of what struck me most while playing White 2, both during my first time in 2012, and my replay last year. If you’ve played the games, you’ll understand the feelings behind this illustration. ;w;
