Talking Pokemon Black/White! How will you roll?

The new pokemon game is out in the US today! Did you get black or white? What starter did you choose? I picked White, and Oshawott (I always go water <3)!

So, on that note, I was wondering, I was thinking of getting the guide to the game, but then I paused. I thought that, perhaps, I should go through this game with no poke-guide at all , and be totally surprised by what I encounter, leaving all the pokemon in the game a mystery in an attempt to capture the wonder I had at red/blue back in the day! Your thoughts?

I've personally never used a guide for a Pokemon game, so. oo;

It was released in the UK on the 4th, and I went out and got it. :3 Black version, my starter Pokemon was Snivy (now evolved, level 33.) Got my 4th badge, currently doing story stuff that you need to do before facing the 5th gym leader.

Also, got my Victini as soon as I was able to. XD I love it soooo much. The combination of Fire/Psychic is really nice, and God it's so cute.

I also just caught an Audino (rare, you can only get them from shaking patches of grass) so I'm totally psyched.

I'll roll by getting the game in a few months.
T___T
I would like to get white since the majority will get black, and I want the grass starter. It looks so freaking cute.

Awwww! I was concerned about money too, since I'm heading to PAX this upcoming week, but I traded in my copy of soulsilver (I transferred all my good pokemon to my copy of pearl). It got me 18 bucks(!) towards the game. I think it's the first time Gamestop has ever done me a good turn XD

I preordered my game and got it on the 4th (As I live in the UK), I got Pokemon Black and my starter was Oshawott. I have already beaten all 8 gym leaders, the elite four and have five legendaries (including Victini - which I got immediately).

I can't wait until the Global Link is available (not until 30th March apparently) so I can get WorldWide access :P

I only got Black because I want the white legendary Pokemon. @@; Before finding that out, I really wanted White.

Well damn XD. I don't have unlimited playtime before pax, so I suspect I won't be in any shape for battles, especially if the international crowd is there!

I feel compelled to get both, otherwise I'll feel like a racist.

I got Black and started with Snivy (who I named Snivelus after Snape's nickname) as I haven't used a grass type as a starter yet.

Getting Black this week. Starting with Oshawott, my first water-type starter. I tend to go Grass but looking over Snivy's move list I'm not all that impressed...

Doesn't matter though, as I usually get all of them anyway (thanks to friends breeding with friends.)

Wife bought Pokemon Black at Nintendo World. Started off with a Snivy, renamed it Excalibur. Should i pick it up (not anytime soon though, new Dissidia and Parasite Games to contend with this month), I'm rolling w/ Oshawott, whom I did buy in plush form.

Oshwott's final evolution is pretty amazing looking, even if the starting is kind of painful. Then again, every form of Snivy just looks so... deliciously smug. I think just about everyone I've seen has gone with the water or the fire.
