Pokémon Black & White Coming Early Next Year to North America
Haven't pre-ordered yet? Wotter you waiting for?
11.01.10 - 2:37 PM

The North American versions of Pokémon Black & White will be releasing sooner than expected. Previously, the games were targeted for a spring 2011 release, but according to Nintendo of America's Q2 financial report, the games will instead be out in the first quarter of 2011.

…and that's it. I've got some extra space here, so how about a Pokémon joke? Okay, so a Smugleaf, a Piglit, and a Wotter walk into a Pokémon Mart. Sent on an errand to fetch medicine, they make their way to the aisle with restorative items. Piglit, ever enthusiastic, accidentally knocks over a bottle of flammable potion, and the entire place goes up in a fiery conflagration. Wotter frantically tries to douse the raging flames, but finds that the blaze is growing faster than he can eliminate it. Desperately, he calls out to Smugleaf for help, but the haughty reptile has already escaped the building. From afar, he surveys the scene, and dons a pair of sunglasses, remarking:

"Looks like this errand… has gone up in smoke."

As always, keep checking back with RPGFan for continued coverage of Pokémon Black & White. This editor will not be making any more awful jokes, promise.
