This Post Does Not Contain Pictures of All 156 New Pokemon In B&W....

...because if we did that Nintendo would make us take them down.

Over the past several months character art and snippets of in-game screenshots for Pokemon Black & White have trickled Stateside, begging the question, are you an ultra-obsessive enough fan to have caught them all? It's OK, you can answer 'no' to that and we won't think (much) less of you, and besides, it's no longer necessary now that B&W released September 18 in Japan and already some nutjob has, within 48 hours, not only collected all 156 new species, they've cataloged them for your reference, too. 
 
After the jump you'll find one large, stitched-together image of all 156 new Pokemon as they appear in-game. Just keep this on the down-low, though, please. Word on the street (OK, it's actually via The Escapist) is that Nintendo doesn't want you to see these images and is cracking down on fansites that post them. Already Serebii and PokeBeach have been legally leaned on to take them down. Though I've worked in the trenches of sales and marketing and had to wrangle with licensing permission and blah blah blah boring business stuff, I could never understand why corporations prevented fans from essentially marketing the product for them in such a way. This image can only generate buzz among non-Japanese fans of the franchise: why strongarm the fansites over it? Life at a $2.5 billion multi-national corporation must be hard.

You know when your running out of ideas when your idea of an evolution is making them a bit bigger and adding another head X D This is the first generation I actually feel slightly disappointed with the line up of new Pokemon. Oh well hopefully the changes they have made in the game will make up.

I'm so sick of Pokemon, seriously, it stopped being fun and original when the first GBA ones came out.

Most of these new pokemon are pretty sick looking.

@Boddington:  I'm enjoying the game as we speak (already have fly) also here's the sprites

@cfatalis:  Its Ghidorah themed.

An Ice Cream Pokemon?
A Fungus type that has the Pokeball insignia on it?
 
They are definitely running out of ideas... What happened to the original Pokemon that were thought out... I mean even Magnamite had a purpose.... it wasn't just magnets!

Actually, this is the first generation since the second one in which I have shouted "HOLY SHIT" at the new line-up. Now, this doesn't show the elements, but we've got Dark/Dragon, Fighting/Dark, Ground/Dark, Fire/Ghost, Electric/Flying, Dark/Steel, heck, we've even got a Fighting/Rock type now.
 
Also, the new region is New York City. One of the elite four members is the bad guy from Fifth Element.

@SamJaz:  One harbour city with 5 streets and 8 open building who only have access 1 or more barely inhabited floors is not exactly ''New York'' 
It did have cool back alley though. Somebody even tried to mug me XD

@Kelleth: And Saffron City is meant to by Tokyo. They dumbed it down for the game.
And the whole REGION is BASED on New York City. Compare the maps. Specifically, the region is New Jersey, if I know my American Geography, which I don't.
Helpful image taken from Pokébeach.

@SamJaz:  O that's what you meant. Guess so. ^^
 
Right now i'm on the left side of the map btw. :)

@Guyver:  I saw one in the city above that one desert. but he did not battle me.

Honestly, most of that new Pokemon loadout is ugly.

Just when you thought you caught 'em all...
