Well, the wait is finally over! On Monday, the English names of Pokemon Black & White's starter Pokemon have finally been revealed:
Tsutarja (the grass snake, left) is called Snivy.
Pokabu (the pig, center) is called Tepig.
Last but not least, Mijumaru (the sea otter, right) is called Oshawott. (Osha-what?)
The Isshu region will be called Unova (I like it!), marking the first time a Pokemon region's name has been changed significantly from the Japanese version.
We will definitely post more English-language info as soon as it becomes available!
