The Japanese poster for the series
The official site for HeartGold and SoulSilver has revealed the dub title for the next season of the Pokémon anime. The season title has been dubbed as Pokémon: Black & White!, keeping the name similar to the upcoming Generation V games, Black and White instead of using the original Japanese name Pokémon: Best Wishes!. Pokémon Black & White follows the successful Diamond & Pearl series, which has only three more episodes to air before it concludes in the U.S.
In related news, more information about an upcoming distribution has been uncovered. Bulbanews reported in December that players of Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver, would be able to download an in-game version of Ash's Pikachu similar to one already released in Japan. It was initially reported that the event would run from Jan. 30 to Feb. 5; however, it is now known that the event will run for an additional week, ending on Feb. 13. As expected, this Pikachu knows the moves Volt Tackle, Iron Tail, Quick Attack and Thunderbolt, and comes holding a Light Ball. It can be collected from participating Toys "R" Us stores.
