    Looking Forward: Forever Speculating: Outlook and speculation from a lifelong die-hard

    It all leads up to Saturday. Pokémon Black and White are released this Saturday, but you already know that. You’ve followed the news each week, and even if you haven’t, you probably noticed the countdown ticking down ever closer on the Bulbapedia front page. The games won’t be released stateside until next Spring, but the information floodgates will be opened. We’ll see every single new Pokémon, we’ll know all of the new features, we’ll know the new moves. Forums everywhere will ignite with discussions, praises, and arguments about Generation V. Flame wars like we’ve never seen could be waiting to erupt and burn this side of the internet to the ground.

    That was a nice read, especially on the 'franchise is evolving' part. It's sad that I wont get to read more of this article, but I'm glad you did these anyways.

    Although I didn't really display much praise in your columns (I still read them, you know), it's really sad but understandable to see you stop this, but I appreciate your effort. Still, I am looking forward to the top 10 from you guys!

    Great article. I also believe the possibility of a third game is very likely.

    I think it's the nicest article you've written. I, for one, will be getting the third version only.

    A Top 10 list? Really?

    This is a new low for Bulbanews.

    I'm quite curious as to what the criteria for the Top 10 list will include. Design? Battle prowess? Stats? I'm getting my seat ready for this one.

    As for the article, I still find them good reads, even if I haven't agreed with everything said in them, but I still find certain points in them to be valid.

    And a bottom ten...

    I can tell you though, I believe Pat and I have completely different tastes when it comes to the art style of the monsters themselves... so I wouldn't be surprised if some of his top ten is on my bottom ten, and vice-versa.

    Design (maybe typing as well, but mostly design). Many like to deny it, but the gut reactions, and much of what goes into building one's team, comes from what the monster looks like...

    As for this Forever Speculating piece itself, great way to conclude the main thread of the Looking Forward series, Pat.

    On the design note, we might not have all the Sugimori Art by then and, in my opinion, I think the Sugimori Art can definitely have an influence on likes and dislikes more so than looking at the sprites.

    But that's just my opinion.

    Since when are they considered news/information?

    Again. Open your local newspaper. They have opinions, right? If they are a larger paper, it probably has a movie critic... well, movie critics typically publish top/bottom ten lists at the end of the year.

    Bulbanews is a Pokemon Newspaper. Newspapers have opinions. Top/Bottom ten lists are a way to fit a lot of opinion in one piece.
