Following those plot details that spread out earlier this week, here’s a video that gives an extended preview of the forthcoming POKEMON: BLACK & WHITE Version 2 games.

Here's something a closer to what I said about how the series ought to allow itself to age and, dare I say, to evolve as it gets further along. I can’t understand anything that’s being said in this clip - - to my ears, it’s just a flurry of syllables regularly punctuated with the word “Pokemon” - - so I suppose the characters could all still being having simple, kid-friendly dialogue. However, the material at least looks more sophisticated, with some rather slickly polished animation, and the trainer's noticeably passed that true threshold of adulthood that trading a baseball cap in for a golf visor represents.

Another thing - - I feel like it’s worth noting that the final moments of this clip totally feel like a Gillette Fusion commercial. Obviously, when the show’s saying “Gotta catch ‘em all!” it’s referring to all the stray hairs that’d otherwise be missed without a couple extra precision razors.

Go on and watch the video below...

I don't see them allowing the POKEMON anime brand to age. The business model or sales don't support it. They make far too much money the way it is by keeping the younger target audience. I guess they could make a more mature spin-off, but that could just lead to brand confusion.

I'm still learning Japanese, but I understand things well enough. Learning the verb bases is really hard, but you'd be pretty surprised at how polite a language it is.

my thoughts exactly. rather unlikely to happen, though. but it was enjoyable at least seeing what could be, even for only a couple of minutes.
