Good news for those who have been waiting for some hint at what new pokemon will be making an appearance in Pokemon Black and White, Mijumaru, Pokabu and Tsutaja have joined Zoroa and Zoroark! This announcement does dash the hope of deviation from the standard fire/water/grass starters, as all three newly revealed pokemon are, you guessed it, the starters.
CoroCoro magazine, a Japanese gaming magazine, revealed the three characters in the latest issue. Pokemon Sunday first revealed shadow images of each of the three characters early this week.
Of course, seeing a picture isn’t really all that helpful. Serebii.net ended up getting some information on data revealed in the article, but unfortunately couldn’t confirm some of it – mainly the character names. The new region name has been confirmed though! The newest Pokemon DS takes place in the Isshu Region.
As a longtime Pokemon game, I am greatly saddened by the character designs. All three of them are rather, well, uninspired. I’ve seen fan-created pokemon that look better. I’ll probably end up going with the water one though – simply because it looks vaguely like an otter and otters are adorable.
