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? --- Waiting for golden Sun 3DS 2 things are infinite: The Universe and human stupidity. I'm not sure about the Universe, though -Albert Einstein
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. --- [Este mensaje fue borrado al deseo del dueno]
