Nintendo Reveal The Legendary Pokémon In Pokémon Black And Pokémon White And Announce USA Release Date [Update]

Nintendo have announced that Pokémon Black and Pokémon White is coming out in the USA in Spring 2011. Nintendo have also revealed the legendary Pokémon from Pokémon Black and White. The White Pokémon is called Reshiram and the black is called Zekrom, these are most likely Japanese names that could change when it comes to USA. I believe that these represent a new Pokémon Type, with Reshiram being a new Light Type and Zekrom will be Dark Type.

[Update, Nintendo UK Announce Pokémon Black and Pokémon White is coming out in Europe in Spring. Reshiram and Zekrom have been confirmed as the English names for the legendary Pokémon. Zekrom is in Pokémon White whilst Reshiram is in Pokémon Black]
