Yesterday Nintendo announced the release date for Pokemon Black and White,. It will be released in North America on March 6, 2011. Now that almost 24 hours have passed I've had time to calm down and think. It's time to plan. I've already decided to get Pokemon White while my brother will get Black. We always make sure to get different cartridges for optimal trading. Here's the real issue, what Pokemon do I start with? I was thinking about starting with Tepig. He's a fire-type pig, that's so metal. I've currently decided on Oshawott, the water-type, solely because it looks like a baby otter. Which Pokemon are you going to start with?
