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.

I admit some of the Pokemon look really stupid but there's a few I would train especially that dragon that looks like a mantis.

All the legendary Pokemon look pretty horrible.

They ran out of ideas with the last batch. Doesn't mean that I probably won't play the game, just means that I'm going to be more inclined to just still use the earlier ones in the game as soon as it's possible to import them.

Hmmm...this game has promise, but  I have long since given up on the Pokemon games. I stopped caring after beating Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald versions for the GameBoy Advance SP back in 2005 because to me, the series had lost the way in terms of making a great game with interesting characters and with each new generation of Pokemon, they just keep getting weirder. The last generation of Pokemon that I liked was the 251 found in Gold/Silver/Crystal versions.
