* These are the only [[core series]] {{pkmn|games}} to be available in Europe before the United States, being released 2 days earlier. However, these are not the only Pokémon titles in general, as this was also the case with the spin-off games [[Pokémon Dash]] and [[PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure]].
* These are the only core series games in which the region's {{pkmn|Champion}} is not the final boss before the [[credits]].
* Due to the DSi-enhanced cartridges being black in color, Pokémon Black is technically the first Pokémon game since {{v2game|Emerald}} to have its cartridge match the color of the game.
* Both the English/European language and Japanese logos of Black and White feature white and black borders, respectively, to represent {{p|Reshiram}} and {{p|Zekrom}} (who are the opposite color from the game they are featured in). The sequels' logos feature black and white borders matching the game version, the legendary mascot ([[List of Pokémon with form differences#Kyurem|Black]] or [[List of Pokémon with form differences#Kyurem|White]] {{p|Kyurem}}), and the rest of the logo.
* These are the only core series games to receive [[Pokémon Black and White Versions 2|a direct sequel]] pair.
* Pokémon Black and White are the only Pokémon games that doin notwhich have anyno Pokémon from previous generations appear in theirthe regional PokédexesPokédex.
* The slogan used in the commercials for these games is "Start From a New Beginning".
* Based on its slogan, the lack of connections to other generations, and beginning the trend of regions being inspired by real-life locations outside of Japan, Pokémon Black and White could be viewed as an attempt to reboot the Pokémon franchise.
