My First Game was AWESOME!

I had never played a Pokemon game before this but my friends made me. I knew nothing about any Pokemon and the Unova region Pokemon took me in and welcomed me. I fell in love with it instantly. I tried it out only thinking to get my character, then turn it off but I played until my parents made me turn it off.
The Pokemon are cool- I know some people don't like them, but I like all 153. I like Oshawott the best and the one problem was that the Pokemon later on had levels too low for me to add them to my party.
I loved the battle scenes but training got repetitive really fast. I rushed into gym battles but still I always won. I loved the graphics. The game literally made me feel like I was sucked into another world. I turned it in when I finished... big mistake. I'm going to replay it, it's that good. I found the Elite Four challenging, but N wasn't really that hard... hmm...
I liked the characters and found them engaging. My favs were the girl character and also N.
I really enjoyed this game and found it fun and addictive. Pokemon are awesome. Really, try this game even if you don't want to.
Wow, is it over? That was long. :)

Pokemon Black brings players to the Unova region, this time with completely updated graphics from the previous Diamond/Pearl/Platinum and Heartgold/Soulsilver, traverse a large region rendered in full 3D based on America, and partake in the new Triple and Rotation battles, this installment adds many new features such as fully mobile Pokemon in battle, enhanced soundtrack and new moves.

In Black two towns have been altered from White, in Black you get Black City used for battling and buying evolutionary stones, and a futuristic version of Opelucid City.

All around a good game, bringing back all the previous elements and tweaking and enhancing them.
