It makes sense to bring in hype for the game. Also, I want to see if the commentators will try to getting the names of those two Pokemon right because I sure can't pronounce both without help.

Considering BW is the canon reset Hoenn was supposed to be... they need to advertise it almost as much as they did RB when they first came out.

You literally need to know zero old Pokémon to go through the dex.

And now I'm going to go to school and have closet fans telling me all about it. Ah, it can be fun not telling people about this place...

But yeah, I'm excited. It should be a great parade. Want Rick Astley back

I love this simply for the venue in which they're rolling these guys out. To me the setting couldn't be more perfect. I can't wait to see what they do with them.

Long Live the Pikachu Float!

Exactly. Reshiram and Zekrom in the real-world version of Iss... Unova. Awesome.

Didn't really strike me as surprising. This is the true Generation I reset, and they were bound to give V some of the things I had.

I love the Gen V promotion. But I'm sure a lot of people won't have a clue what they are. I wonder what the commentators will have to say about them.

Maybe they'll announce it at the Parade?

BELLEVUE, WA-- Turkey, pumpkin pie and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade®; Thanksgiving traditions shared by millions of Americans across the country. One Thanksgiving tradition is commemorating a milestone in 2010 -- Pikachu! The Pokémon Company International announced today that the world renowned Electric-type Pokémon™ will celebrate its 10th anniversary participating in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Accompanying Pikachu in New York City will be two brand new Legendary Pokémon, Reshiram and Zekrom, from the highly anticipated Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version video games launching worldwide spring 2011 for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems.



For their debuts, Reshiram and Zekrom will each stand an imposing 14 feet tall, a dramatic kick-off to exciting, never-before-seen Pokémon reveals, news and events all tied to the launch of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version video games. Pikachu's balloon handlers will also celebrate the upcoming games, dressing the part in black and white uniforms.



"Pikachu's participation in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of our favorite events of the year and we're proud to have been involved in such an iconic event over the past decade," said J.C. Smith, director of Consumer Marketing for The Pokémon Company International. "Having Reshiram and Zekrom join the Pikachu balloon makes this year's parade extra special for us as we begin to reveal more exciting details about the Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version video games."



In the coming weeks and months, Pokémon fans can get exclusive information about the brand new titles by visiting www.PokemonBlackWhite.com, launched this week. Exclusive details will be added frequently leading up to the spring launch of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version video games.
