Tepig. Snivy. Oshawott. Sure, these three gibberish words don't mean anything to your brain right now, but learn them well -- they're the English names of the new starters in Pokémon Black and White, as revealed by the game's recently launched, official North American website. You don't want to be left behind when these guys become part of our cultural vocabulary, much like Squirtle, Charmander, and the grass one which nobody ever picked. (Just kidding, Bulbasaur. We cool, we cool.)

There's a few other details about the new environment of Unova, and the two new playable trainers as well. There's also a section about the two endgame legendary 'mons, Reshiram and Zekrom -- who will also be making their debut as floats in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. Which should be ... well, terrifying. Look at them! Can you imagine those things, forty stories tall, floating down the streets of New York City? We liked that scenario better when it was called Cloverfield, and was, you know, not a real thing that happened.
