    Looks nice. I'm crazy enough that I may pick up the Collector's Edition.
    Yes, I am coming out of the closet as a Brony. Problem, manly men?

    Check out the TVTropes Fanon Pokedex project! (especially the articles written by Umbramatic, which is most definitely not my alternate username ;) )
    Also, my recently-resurrected fanfic. And something N fans would love to read.

    sounds dumb, but what does lenticular mean?

    A form of 3D that generally is composed of two images, both titled slightly so that only one image can be seen at a time, causing the image to change when moved.

    EDIT: I stand corrected, see above for he actual definition of lenticular, or search "lenticular printing" on wikipedia

    Also, this seems really cool, and it's not too much more expensive to have what seems like double the size for the guide. Personally, I never buy game guides. I always liked figuring out things for myself, and if I ever really need help, I can find most anything on the internet (I'm sure Bulbapedia has quadruple what is covered in the game guide).

    I do the same thing. And even when the gamestop employee asked my mom if she wanted a game guide when she preordered white for my birthday, she told him no because I'll just end up looking up everything on youtube and bulbapedia. Honestly there's no real point to the physical guides anymore unless you don't have internet or are a collector.

    Sometimes they're helpful. A lot of the stuff on the internet often comes from the game guides anyway. I had not the walkthrough guide, but the complete Pokedex game guide for gold/silver, and it was really helpful, and provided nice artwork for all the Pokemon. It was nice because it didn't tell me how to beat my game, instead it would give me specific information on each Pokemon, now though this is all available on the internet.

    God these are way overpriced! Probably won't buy one since we have the interwebz.

    I would only buy these for the sake of novelty. If I wanted to know about anything notable, I'd go on some website for information (Like Bulbapedia or Serebii)

    So I guess those two images are the ones that will be seen?

    Looks good. Hopefully we'll get better Sugimori character art for Bulbapedia from the guides. The images that are on the pages now are grainy and incomplete (i.e. Katorena's hair and Iris's right foot are cut off.)

    most game guides are usually priced at $19.99, but retailers like Best Buy and Amazon often charge cheaper, especially when the game has been released for more than a few months. $29.99 doesn't really seem to bad for what basically seems like double the size of the guide.

    I hate when they split the guides like this, but they're so expansive it's become necessary. It wouldn't hurt if they'd release both at the same time, but they don't. And I don't like to play while looking up stuff on my computer

    Hardback lasts longer with me, but if I can't get it, that's fine too.
