Seems like POKEMON HEART GOLD & SOUL SILVER were just leftovers (albeit rearranged and with spices added) to keep fans satiate before the new meal of two brand new games from Nintendo - - POKEMON BLACK & WHITE.  Furthering the culinary conceit, this announcement is something of an appetizer… actually scratch that, it’s not even enough of an appetizer. It’s more like a pre-meal mint, before April 15.  On the date, fans will be hearing more details about the games, but for now, the facts are limited to this: these will be brand-new games for the DS, rather than revamps, and they’re going to be dropping sometime in the fall. Oh! And we’ve got these logos ( courtesy of Kotaku).

You know, considering how this series has cycled through color-themes over the various incarnations, I can’t help picturing POKEMON BLACK as a darker version of the game. Would you fans of the series like that? I figure if the Picaresque DRAGONBALL can evolve into the older-skewing DRAGONBALL Z, it wouldn’t be that much of a stretch to picture a darker version of POKEMON that aged along with its audience. Would you in the constantly-evolving POKEMON community want to see the adventures of Ash Ketchum progress into something slightly more mature? Think about it.

I am disappointed it's not being released on the 3DS...I'm not sure if I'll buy anymore of these games but I might.

Well at least it is a "New" pokemon game and not a remake of one.

I think I'd still prefer a remake of Pokemon Blue for the DS.
Black and white might not be that bad though...

As i have said before, until they announce a Pokemon MMO, or a real serious modern RPG take on a non-handled system, I'm not interested in playing the same game again. Sadly none of these are even gonna be considered to get made until the games start to consecutively bomb in sales with their release.
 
Just stop and think how god dam amazing a game would be if they just took three or four years and made a serious modern day game, and not just another gameboy game with something between a SNES and an N64 level of graphics and gameplay.

It would of been better to call it EBONY and IVORY. A perfect excuse to sing the song.  Would of been awesome for the commercials too.
 
We are only a generation away from a Pokemon PLAID.

@Tatriana:  stick a picture of a blastoice on the box and cartridge of leaf green and their you go.
 
@crusader8463:
I completly agree with you, if the pokemon games were made for say xbox / ps3 with modern graphics, online capabilities and actually like a real mmo like environment with nearly all the continents and generations of pokemon, it could be good and interesting.
 
But these re made games and same games with different land and pokemon (which just look stupider with each gen) its just boring and a waste of money.

Back to classic colors! 
  
  
Finally, we're back in the realm of Red and Blue, instead of precious metals and Jewels like Gold and Sapphire and Diamond!

I will consider these new games...I just need to get a DSi to play HeartGold and SoulSilver first before these two new games arrive. 
Wonder if Pokemon Black will be something like where the world has fallen under a eternal night and you must rise to the top of the Pokemon world and take down whatever is casting the world into darkness to restore light to the world (just a idea I had)

@Chengy:  But that ruins the fun of it. ;p
 
  @cfatalis:  I suppose, yeah.  But I'd prefer to play a remake of (IMO) the good version, instead of a thousand other remakes.
  
They just need to make a different kind of game.  Maybe something MMO style -- now that would be interesting!
