In this continuation of sorts, I’m going to review the designs of Munna and its evolution, Musharna. I call it a continuation because these two Pokemon relate to the Pokemon I reviewed in the last installment of Pokemon Designs — Drowzee and Hypno — in two pretty important ways: First, like many Gen V Pokemon, Munna and Musharna are based in some way on Gen I Pokemon (in this case, Drowzee and Hypno), and second, by extension they are also based on the mythological Baku just as their forebears were.
The Japanese Baku was discussed in the Drowzee & Hypno review, so I won’t reiterate its description here; it should be obvious to anyone who read the last review or knows about the Baku in general that Munna and Musharna are even more distinctly based on it than Drowzee was. In fact, at first it appears they have relatively little inspiration from other sources and are almost purely inspired by the mythical creature. I’ll get into my thoughts on that later in, but first let’s go over these odd little guys one at a time:
For me at least, the announcement of Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 came as quite a surprise. Pokemon has always been a series that’s released its sequels as stand-alone game duos and trios with features unique from each other. Outside of some of the side games like Pokemon Stadium, there have been no direct sequels to a Pokemon game. It’s quite a surprise to see that change all of a sudden, and it’s interesting to think about. How might Black and White 2 differ from other main series Pokemon titles? Why were they sequels as opposed to a new set of games? Could this affect the series moving forward, and if so, how?

The domain of www.pokemongray.com has been registered with the Melbourne IT DBS company. It was originally registered at about the time Pokémon Black and White released in Japan. At first, when you visit the domain, all you see is a placeholder page that shows that it has been registered and will probably be used in the future. When you look at the page, there’s this interesting little tidbit of information that the Melbourne company gives us:
That little bit of information could lead us to believe that the Big N has registered this domain for a future use of some sort. Possibly as a hub for an upcoming Pokémon title? Namely, the anticipated Pokémon Gray? Only time will tell. Read more…
