I was originally going to get White first but in the store I grabbed the one with the White Legendary Pokémon without thinking and when I got home I realized that the one with the Black Legendary Pokémon was White.
I got black, but right when I bought it, I wished I bought white....
My boyfriend got both, he played both, and gave his Black to me. But I want my own White too. Well, if the rumors about Gray are true then I guess there's no need to get White but whatever.
I picked white for the same reason yahtzee did.
I got White, not knowing the Zekrom was for white and Reshiram was for black :P. I thought it was the other way aroud! But I ended up liking Zekrom WAY better than Reshiram and the excusive Thunderus WAY better than Tornadus, so it was very enjoyable. :)
I got black because 1. Black is a cooler color and 2. Reshiram's awesome you can teach him moves that will strike back his weaknesses. I have zekrom and there is no move to strike back ground types
I have both, but I definitely prefer Black.
