Possible ‘Black’ and ‘White’ Spoilers – Unconfirmed (Update!)
Friday, June 11th, 2010 @ 8 PM, UTC - By: Water Pokémon Master
Update (12:30 PM, Saturday) – We have reason to believe this may be fake. While the source continues to wholeheartedly maintain it’s real, saying “I hope you can understand that I would not purposely come up with a prank like that after working in the video game community for years,” he posted obvious “fanart” of Minotauros on our forums claiming it to be beta artwork (though later he said it was just to give us an idea of what the real Pokemon would look like). This isn’t what convinced me of his legitimacy earlier, but nonetheless, his present actions just seem too fishy – perhaps his source fooled him, since we know he is an incredibly reliable news reporter for the gaming community. Like we said earlier, this may all be fake, and for now we’re going to classify it as such even though it could still be real. If something proves the legitimacy of this news, we’ll revisit this story and the other stuff he showed us. But for now, my sincerest apologies everyone. (Ongoing discussion about all of this here.)
This afternoon we were contacted by a man named Martijn Müller, the webmaster of an old and famous Zelda website. He claimed to have insider information on Black and White, and after spending a few hours verifying he was who he claimed to be, we decided to indulge and see what he had to say. Granted, we often get a lot of people claiming to know insider information on Pokemon games, with some going to extreme lengths to fool us. However, he has revealed insider information to gaming communities before, which leads us to believe he is telling the truth. He also personally showed me some developer material from Black and White, which further cemented to me that he was telling the truth. Nevertheless, this information could be one highly elaborate scheme (it wouldn’t be the first time), so for now, please just take all of it with a grain of salt – it’s not confirmed and could be fake. As a fan site it is our duty to post rumors when we have gone to reasonable lengths to verify the sources, which is why we decided to post this. Remember, grain of salt!
