The 5th Generation Legendaries

The upcoming Pokemon Black and White versions for Nintendo DS is starting to provide us some overview of what's in for the game. We have seen the startes, the new interface (3D), the game mechanics and some of the new moves for Pokemon attacks. Today, another breaking news for all Pokemon lovers is released and it's all about the featured legendaries of the upcoming sequels.

Both the Japanese and English official website announced the new addition to the fifth generation family. Both Pokemon will be featured on the box cover of the games.. Reshiram (レシラム) for Black and Zekrom (ゼクロム) for White. According to the Japanese site, the two Pokémon have a strong connection to the history of Isshu and are key to the games' story. English names not yet announced.

In my opinion, Pokemon is starting to remodel their images and cute and cuddly ones (even legendaries) are starting to turn into what I could contrast with Digimon and other monster games; fierce, brutal-looking and more mechanically designed. But oh well, Pokemon is Pokemon. This evolution does not affect me at all. It would still be the best cartoon/anime that Japan had created (in my own opinion, of course).
