Default Did they run out of colors?

Did pokemon run out of useable colors? Heartgold? SoulSilver? Really. They haven't tried Black, Pink, White, Cyan, and others I am too lazy to mention.

No, it's for marketing purposes or something so that they can market their little 'Pokemon Color Spectrum' so they can make shitloads of money like that.

Well they started with Gems now, and that's what were currently on. Next I imagine they'll move on to various types of dining utensils or something.

And racist. Which = awesome, so I guess you already mentioned it.

I don't know, I'm no expert or anything, but perhaps they're named that for being remakes of the original Gold/Silver versions of the game?

I don't recall seeing black people in the game from my experience of playing Pokemon. There probably might be 'darker skinned' people in there though...but that's about all I can think of.

My point is that it would be hard to make Pokemon significantly more racist than it already is.

Hell I don't know...as long as they can milk this 'franchise' for what it's worth, I think they'll find ways to make it, in a subtle manner, even more racist than it already is.

There's no white people either. Fistful of asians. And they're tiny, so a fistful is like 12 asians.

Anyway, I think I remember at one point in time they thought the phrase "black-out", when you fainted, was too racist, then in a few of the games they said "white-out" instead. I was always confused about how come that's not even more racist?

I never got why you always went unconscious after losing a battle. I got the impression that my character was a huge pussy and stopped playing.

I can think of a few brown characters in the series, but I can't recall any blacks. I've also been wondering about passing out on loss. Maybe your character suffers huge emotional trauma when he loses, and it knocks him out?

That's not more racist because 'racism against whites' doesn't really count as racism anyway as they've 'had it good for too long'.

Because the Pokemon totally raped his ass after they defeated all your Pokemon who were supposed to protect you from getting chloroformed and raped.

They should graphically depict this in Pokemon Black and Pokemon White.

I would buy both copies of those games if they did so.

I know...but that still doesn't change the fact that the white people somehow used their 'whiteness' to completely control anybody who isn't white. So I suppose the developers for the game decided, as revenge possibly, to subtly include that through the concept of your character 'whiting-out'.

Physics VS Racism

White is all colors, therefore, a white man cannot be racist.

In all seriousness though, WHITE POWER!

Guh-gasp! Well...we'll just have to see what the ACLU will have to say about this after they "find a way" to stick their noses in this thread somehow.

I think he meant that white is every color because 'white light' will show all of the colors in the color spectrum if you put it in a prism.
