#646 Kyurem

Celebrating new Pokemon announcement, Pokemon Black2 and Pokemon White2, putting up Kyurem for today. Too lazy to make the alt forms now, I’ll do that when the game actually comes out in June.

It generates a powerful, freezing energy inside itself, but its body became frozen when the energy leaked out.

Kyurem is the 3rd Pokemon in the title dragon trio. It kinda looks like an old man, haha. Its type of Dragon/Ice is unique. While Ice does negate Dragon’s weakness to Ice, it also comes with its own set of weaknesses that Dragon doesn’t negate it.

Stat-wise, it has high Attack and Sp Attack, the highest of all Ice types. But it has slower Speed and not great Defenses.

And now I talk about this new game announcement. I was expecting Pokemon Grey, but I guess they put a spin on it *coughmoneygrabcough* Not too fond of the name choice though, Pokemon, using numbers in the game titles?! pfft, totally should’ve gone with “Dark Grey” and “Light Grey”.

So yeah, apparently Kyurem has 2 new forms. It looks like it got moshed together with Reshiram and Zekrom. I suppose its signature moves Ice Burn and Freeze Shock make sense, haha. The games are due to come out in Japan in June.

I wonder how much new content they’ll add to this, and whether I should get it (not getting both version if I do). I’m a bit disappointed that it’s a DS game, not 3DS game though, ’cause I wanna see the Pokemon in 3D.

What I do want to see this game are:

  • Moar triple and rotation battles!! Srsly, they added this cool new battle style, and unless you play with other players, there’s not many places in the game you can do this. Adding it to the battle subway would be awesome
  • Able to rebattle gym leaders, a pretty standard addition
  • Pokemon walking behind you!! I miss that from HeartGold/SoulSilver
  • Move tutor moves!!

Would you get this new game? Are you disappointed that they’re making new Black/White games instead of Gen III remakes?
