GameStop Reveals Pokémon Black & White American Release Date?

Today I went to GameStop to buy gift cards for my cousins. When I went to pay with my mom, I noticed that there was a paper that had the release dates for a bunch of games; one of them was Pokémon Black & White. The release date listed there was April 17, 2011. Is this the official release date?

Think about it; April 17, 2011 is a Sunday and falls in Spring 2011. It's possible.

My apoligies if this was already known.

    It's probably a dummy date. They use those in their systems a lot with upcoming games. When it's official, Nintendo will announce it first, which they haven't yet.

    Sounds reasonable to me, but I always thought it'd end up in March...

    You have a point.
    Why did I tag it as a spoiler?

    Most of the time, the statements on release papers like that in stores such as Gamestop are just guidelines on when it's released, usually on their guess and not necessarily the actual date.

    I'm not saying this isn't the date, I'm not actually aware of the date yet, but this has happened countless times before with Gamestop

    No problem, Burning Soul.

    Also, Serebii, have they ever made it fitting to past games' release dates? April 17 is a Sunday and it is during the Spring.

    Of course, this is unconfirmed, but until then, this is actually a quite fitting date for the games' release.

    Yeah they have done that in the past. It's just the date they have in their system, usually to guide pre-orders.

    Again, it could be the date, but it's not indicative of it. Retailers are not your best bet for release info. They often know less than us

    Usually they just slap it in the start, middle of end of the announced period so never that far off

    I remember that they said that HeartGold & SoulSilver would come out on April 23. However, I was in complete disagreement as April 23 was a Friday. But April 17 is a Sunday, and seems much more accurate.

    I'm assume placeholder for now because Gamestop gave three different release dates for HeartGold and SoulSilver and two different dates for Guardian Signs.

    That's the release sheet. This is a staff sheet.

    Why would anyone think May after the past five were released in March and April?
