Korean version region lock
As seen in recent Pokémon news, [[shiny]] [[legendary beasts]], to be given away at the [[m13|new movie's]] premiere in Japan, will unlock a feature in the upcoming Black and White. This info also tells us it will somehow be compatible for trade between {{game|Diamond and Pearl|s}}, {{game|Platinum}}, and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}.
 
They have unique moves that are not normally known by {{p|Raikou}}, {{p|Suicune}} and {{p|Entei}}. Raikou will know {{m|Zap Cannon}}, {{m|Aura Sphere}}, and {{m|Weather Ball}} and will hold the [[Micle berryBerry]]; Suicune will know {{m|Sheer Cold}}, {{m|Air Slash}}, and {{m|Aqua Ring}} and will hold the [[Rowap berryBerry]]; and Entei will know {{m|Flare Blitz}}, {{m|Howl}}, and {{m|Crush Claw}} and will hold the [[Custap berryBerry]]. All three will also know {{m|ExtremespeedExtremeSpeed}}.

::::Just so you know, we're excluding the Dream World from affecting version-exclusives.

== C-Gear Battery? ==
 
When the game is played on the DS, the battery meter on the C-Gear has two sections (one less than the one on the DS main menu), whereas when it is played on the 3DS, the meter has three sections (one less than the one on the 3DS Home menu). I don't know the specifics for the DSL and DSi/DSi XL, but I'm sure they're similar. Worth mentioning? [[User:Piraka~Mistika|Ṕїґαкα~Ṃḯṧтїкα]] 01:31, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
:It's probably that way because empty is the lowest it goes on the C-Gear, while on the home menu on the consoles it stops at one bar. --[[User:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#A70000">'''Snorlax'''</span>]][[User talk:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#0000A7">'''Monster'''</span>]] 07:08, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
::Well, yeah, but it's just interesting that the graphics change depending on what system you play it on. [[User:Piraka~Mistika|Ṕїґαкα~Ṃḯṧтїкα]] 18:48, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

What about pokemon that you cannot get in the games unless you transfered them, like the Hoenn Starters? --[[User:Sapphowako|Sapphowako]] 01:18, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
:Since those Pokémon are not included in the games without transfer, it's not listed on this page. You can see how to obtain them by visiting their respective pages.

== The word 'Prequel' ==
 
You cannot call [[Pokémon Black and White Versions]] prequels. In order for the games to be prequels, they would have had to be released ''after'' [[Pokémon Black and White Versions 2]]. I tried correcting this, but somebody decided to change it back. Could whoever did this please stop this and remember this for future use.
 
Also, here's the actual definition for the word.
 
pre·quel/ˈprēkwəl/
Noun: A story or movie containing events that precede those of an existing work.
 
Thank-you. {{unsigned|‎Blagdenwhiteraven}}
==Final boss==
* Black and White are the first main series games in which the region's {{pkmn|Champion}} is not the '''final boss''' before the [[credits]].
 
Is final boss really the appropriate word to use in this situation? I would hardly consider anyone in the Pokémon games to be considered a boss. --[[User:NOBODY|NOBODY]] ([[User talk:NOBODY|talk]]) 00:44, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
:I don't see how it's not; "boss" isn't the usual term the Pokemon fandom uses because we have more specific ones (Gym Leader, Elite Four, Champion, villainous team leader, etc), but it's still accurate. To quote {{wp|Boss (video gaming)|Wikipedia}}, ''Boss battles are generally seen at the climax of a particular section of the game, usually at the end of a stage or level, or guarding a specific objective, and the boss enemy is generally far stronger than the opponents the player has faced up to that point.[3]'' Gym Leaders and the Champion fit all these criteria:
:* climax of a section of the game - Defeating Gym Leaders allows the player to move into new areas of the world either through HM field moves or by lifting roadblocks, and by and large (though not without exception), the Gym is the most climactic or final occurrence in a city. The Champion, of course, is the climax of the entire game.
:* guarding a specific objective - Badges, of course.
:* stronger than previous opponents - Gym Leaders' Pokemon, of course, tend to have higher levels than other Trainers in their Gym and in the surrounding area.
:Just because we don't generally use the term "boss" in the fandom doesn't mean these characters aren't bosses. [[User:Pumpkinking0192|Pumpkinking0192]] ([[User talk:Pumpkinking0192|talk]]) 07:02, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
 
== more canon ==
 
Which one is? I don't see that mentioned anywhere.--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 10:25, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
 
Bump--[[User:Elveonora|Elveonora]] ([[User talk:Elveonora|talk]]) 13:17, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
:Nothing has ever been said about which one is more canon. --[[User:Funktastic~!|<span style="color:#009900">'''It's'''</span> <span style="color:#CC66FF">'''Funktastic~!'''</span>]][[User talk:Funktastic~!|<sub><small><span style="color:#99CCFF">''話してください''</span></small></sub>]] 13:47, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
 
== The title of the page should stay the same. ==
 
It has been suggested that the title of this article be renamed "Pokémon Black and White." I'm okay with the suggestion, but even though other territories don't use the word "version," North America does, so we should refer to them by their full North American names. Thank you.

== Korean version region lock ==
 
* ''Reason: Confirmation as to whether or not the Korean versions are region-locked.''
 
I'm 95% sure that it's not region-locked, because I do recall playing my Korean Black cart on my USA DSi unit. In fact, here is a video of me inserting my Korean cart into my US DSi:
* https://youtu.be/tgfHusCIQEw
 
But then again, I forget if, despite the fact that it loads, it will actually play, or if I get a error message. For example, I can load Korean Gen 6 carts into a US 3DS, but it won't play in it. What happens with a Japanese BW cart in a non-Japanese DSi?
 
I will therefore look into this and get back to everyone about it as soon as I can. --- [[User:Nick15|Nick15]] ([[User talk:Nick15|talk]]) 19:11, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
 
** Ok, I have definitely confirmed that the Korean versions of both BW1 and BW2 are not region-locked, as they play perfectly fine in my US DSi system. So I updated the section to point that out, as well as remove the "Incomplete" box. I also made this change at BW2. -- [[User:Nick15|Nick15]] ([[User talk:Nick15|talk]]) 18:15, 5 September 2018 (UTC)
