What version of the new Pokemon generation did you pick?  
 
I chose the White version, because I would rather have a forest full of rare Pokemon to catch instead of a city full of tough trainers to fight

Both, and then before that I imported a copy of White from Japan. 
I have an addiction...

Two of my friends went with White and they made me go with Black. I didn't really care though, plus its black. Its really the only reason you need.

You really like the big black guy more? I like the white bird thing, myself. It's much more elegant.

Getting black version cuz I'm racist.

#13 Posted by Hennet_sim (349 posts) -

Pokemon White I feel like i am in the minority here.

#14 Posted by DonChipotle (2975 posts) -

White version because I had it pre ordered before Ryan Davis informed me about the Tron looking city.

#15 Posted by Tictocbehemoth (63 posts) -

I am going to go buy Black today because the pokemon on the front looks cooler to me.

#16 Posted by HandsomeDead (11854 posts) -

White is might.

#17 Posted by Mutley (350 posts) -

Is the Black version bigger by any chance?

#18 Posted by Skald (4381 posts) -

White.

#19 Posted by MikkaQ (10296 posts) -

White cause you can catch Porygon in the white forrest apparently.

Dude..

Black.

 Black City > White Forest
#22 Posted by igloodude (73 posts) -

I got White because since the beginning of Pokemon, my brother has always gotten whichever version is listed first (e.g., Red, Gold, Black, etc.) and I've gotten the second (e.g., Blue, Silver, White, etc.).

#23 Posted by Hexogen (802 posts) -

Seriously though, I don't care about catching 'em all. I just wanna fight more stuff.
#24 Posted by Captain_Felafel (1672 posts) -

Both. 

#25 Posted by DarkShaper (1362 posts) -

White cause I chose at random as I always do, that won't stop me from acting like the version I picked is better.

#26 Posted by Entus (256 posts) -

White. It was the closest one of the two when I bought it. I didn't really care.

#27 Posted by Spoonman671 (4922 posts) -

I'm surprised by the results so far.  I was under the impression that Black was the widely preferred version.  It's the one I got.

#28 Edited by Slaker117 (4856 posts) -

I wonder what the sales split will look like on this. We'll probably never know, but it wouldn't surprise me if the margin here is significantly wider than any of the other games.

#29 Posted by Kyreo (4683 posts) -

I wanted to go for Black because apparently there is a city in there that looks like Tron but my friends all got Black so I went with White instead.

That seems kinda shortsighted. I can get someone to trade me all the pokemon that you can find in the White forest. But you can't be traded an entire city, or whatever unique things are found/earned in it.

@MAST:
I don't really go online, and is everybody forgetting that you get to have the cool Black Pokemon!
#32 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6652 posts) -

I picked Black because I walked into a Wal-Mart and decided the case looked cooler than the other one.

#33 Posted by JammyJesus (771 posts) -

Black, my other friend bought white. 

#34 Posted by GullumF (94 posts) -

#35 Posted by metalsnakezero (2572 posts) -

Black because look at this thing! 

#36 Posted by HolyCrapItsAdam (578 posts) -

I got White for the soul reason that the Legendary Pokemon looks so much cooler than the Black Version

#38 Posted by JonathanMoore (1880 posts) -

#39 Posted by Underachiever007 (2471 posts) -

Both. I know, I have a problem.
#40 Posted by Bollard (6252 posts) -

You know what, I just realized that when I was buying it today XD
#42 Edited by ThaMilkMan (385 posts) -

If I end up buying black in the future...like the near future...does that mean I have a problem? 
 
(I bought white on day one and am 25+ hours in)

#43 Posted by xplodedd (1379 posts) -

white, because that was the only one in stock

#44 Posted by Aaron_G (1677 posts) -

I picked White. I just felt better about it. 

#45 Posted by Moofey (71 posts) -

I went black; If not only because it's a dark color, but because for whatever reason I've always picked the first version listed in each set of games. (Red for 1st gen, Gold for 2nd, Ruby and FireRed for 3rd, Diamond and HeartGold for 4th.)

#46 Posted by JJOR64 (19512 posts) -

Got White.

#47 Posted by Animasta (14818 posts) -

#48 Edited by Lemoncookie01 (1663 posts) -

#49 Posted by freshakiff (96 posts) -
