I didn't mind it, it made the game more challenging in terms of making your team. I even kept my same team of new pokemon after I cleared the story line because they grew on me :3

I prefer it tbh, it gave me time to grow accustomed to having a team full of Pokemon I've never used and known before. Now I like Gen V Pokemon slightly more than the others. xDDDD

I didn't like the idea at first but it grew on me. It made me learn more about the new Pokemon and appreciate them more. I even got some new favorites like Scrafty , Braviary, and Hydregion.

It was quite pleasant, playing through a fresh game as opposed to one where all that was changed was the location.

I thought it was fresh and helped others get "into" the game by using the region's Pokemon only, although I was disappointed at first...I got used to it later on. Did like Unova's better than the pokemon that appeared after you beat the game though.

I found the idea alright at first but started to miss the old mon's midway though the game, especially after finding most of the new Pokemon not as interesting as the old ones.

I haven't played BW so far, but the idea itself sounds good to me.

At least, I think the game staff should work on pushing the new Pokémon a bit more forward instead of having players rely so much on previous generations. So far until Platinum, I noticed that minus the Pidgey-like bird that shows up in every generation, the furry brown thingy that turns out to be a HM slave and a few other Pokémon, you didn't have THAT much choice at the beginning in terms of native Pokémon. The stronger ones often appear later when you probably already have a main team.

Yes the Geodude, Ghastly and Abra line are useful, but if there aren't any real alternatives, this is what some players will get back to. At least I've found myself building up a main team around Geodude and Kadabra from gen. I to IV more than once, simply because they were so useful, especially around the early parts of the game.

Also, Zubats are annoying. The only reason why I tend to dislike the idea going into a cave before even getting into a cave is because of the amount of Zubats/Golbats that I'm going to run into.=.=

However, it would be nice to let older Pokés appear later, ex. after the National Dex rather than having to rely on trades.

It was interesting, and provided a nice challenge seeing as I didn't automatically know things such as typing and evolutions.

However, it does get kinda annoying how it's only Unova Pokčmon throughout most of the region even after you get the National Dex.

I doubt you wanna hear me complaining about availability and personal stuff, but if you wanna, just click that little spoiler button there.

( Click to show/hide )
And the fact that I'm trying to make a Hetalia-based team and I can't due to Canada being a Pidgeotto, England being a Charizard, and France being a Ninetales. I can't make the team in an earlier game either because America is a Braviary. And I won't have access to two DSes for a while, so I can't transfer from Soulsilver. And I can't use the GTS because I want to nickname these guys. ARGH.

I thought it was a great move on their part. It was so refreshing to go through the game without facing the same old Pokemon. It made new routes much more exciting when all of the Pokemon to be found there were new ones, and not some Machop or something.

It was a good move from a marketing perspective, too. Advertise that BW has no old Pokemon, and then when BW2 comes around, use the inclusion of old Pokemon as a selling point.

I liked it, I guess. Well I don't pretty much care about it. XD But it gives the game a little excitement because you won't know which Pokémon will appear~

I thought it was exciting to see all the new pokemon. And it also was a nice surprise when I found the old pokemon after the story :3

I thought it was a good and reasonable idea because it forced you to see what new Pokemon have been introduced and helps you find new favorites and whatnot. Sometimes throughout the game, though, I did wish that I could have caught an older generation Pokemon for more convenience and such.

It depends: while nice oldbies are simply OK, overpowered ones (and by 'overpowered', it doesn't necessarily means to be OP in competitive battling, but storyline completion ) may induce players to simply use them and ignoring the new options.

Anyway, this thing (no oldbies before the storyline is completed) is, IMHO, a good move on their part. With nothing but new pokemons to use, a player have to compose teams with new (spare)parts, and, along with it, hone their creativity.... ^^

To an extent, I actually did like it; it sort of did feel like they were going for a reboot, at least to a degree. In the end, though, I think I kinda missed Zubat.
