well, I was, too, but I didn't really follow the news

so for those who did follow the news, how long after the initial announcement of B/W did they wait to reveal the evolutions of the starters?

I'm not sure of the exact time, but it was months afterwards.

I believe that the infamous starter evolution leak occurred around the beginning of September in 2010, the month that the games were released in Japan (on the 18th). The three weeks leading up to the release were terrible: I can't remember such a fuss on a Pokemon board, and I've followed them since right after Ruby/Sapphire.

Many people did not believe the leaked evolutions (including me), but they were confirmed of course. I know I learned my lesson, and won't be so quick to discount any leaks that might happen in the months leading to XY's release.

I remember there were some leaks of them first. Can't remember if it was just the final forms though. I remember there was a photo of the Pokemon on white paper or something.

I think this was what the leaks looked like http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s302/the-inuzuka-master/evo.jpg?t=1283940717

Either way it was months anyway before the leaks and official announcement.

We knew of Servine and Dewott because of a leaked sketch page for the anim. Quite a while before the controversial leak

Dewott and Servine got leaked in July and Pignite was later on revealed in September.

I remember that pic (or something very similar at least). So many people denying it, lol.
