Pokémon Black and White Premiere video - see the starters dance!

Who is the best dancer? Tepig, Snivy or Oshawott?

Forget One Direction! The stars of last night's Pokémon Black & White Premiere in London were undoubtedly Tepig, Oshawott and Snivy. After the Direction (can we call them that?) had left the stage, Pokémon Black and White's Starter Pokémon took to the dancefloor to show off their moves.

By moves we don't mean Blaze, Torrent and Overgrow. They were actually dancing. Okay, perhaps you can't really describe Snivy's shuffles as dancing but Tepig and Oshawott put more effort in. Tepig is not exactly going to be the 12th member of Diversity but we like his style. Take a look at the video and let us know who is the best dancer!

    And yet, Oshawott is still the one that moves the most!

  6. hazzajepson Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 16:06

    Tepig for the win.

  7. MarioMagic Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 16:10

    Oshawott was the best.

  8. CyberGW Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 16:24

  10. Pokegirl Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 16:56

    Defenitly Oshawott
    Tepig was only moving his arms!

  11. Random-Hero Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 17:02

    The event was fantastic. Glad to have met some of the ONM Staff and members whilst the Pokémon begun to dance. :3

  12. Karsch Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 17:04

    This has made my day so much.
    ffgfnfnf need one of those costumes right now

  13. jgower Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 17:12

    Tepig. Robot Arms FTW!!!

    Oshawott was just shuffling around, Snivy was shuffling even more, no brainer really 8)

  14. Shadow117 Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 17:52

    Tepic was pretty awesome. Oshawott was also pretty awesome. But Snivy- well, i'm just pretty disappointed in him it wasn't up to the standards of the other acts. :)

    But overall Tepig has to win it with the Robot Arms!!

  15. EveA Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 17:56

    Man I hate my voice.

    Not kidding though, this made me choose Tepig as my starter.

  16. Ezlo Minish Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 18:07

    There are lots of accusations of "shuffling", but looking at those costumes I don't think they could do much else. XD
    It was still awesome though. :D

  17. Layton link Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 18:10

    OMG!!!
    tehpig is so funny!!
    he is now my fav starter!

  18. KingKoopa Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 18:37

    Smugleaf's too uptight for dancing.

  19. 142520452213 Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 18:46

    I loved the woman at the end: "We wanna see some breakdancing!" Funniest vid of the year.

  20. englishGAMER Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 18:53

    Snivy's too uptight for dancing.


    Fix'd. 8) :P
    BTW Tepig was awesome, much like Pokemon Black. I really want that Tepig Costume.

    See kids, get good GCSEs, end up as a games journalist. Get bad GCSEs, end up as a games mascot.

  22. rukaio101 Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 19:46

    I am so going to try and make that my screensaver :D

  23. ArmouredSwampert Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 21:00

    wut

  24. ClockMenace Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 23:31

    I want to hug the Oshawott.

  25. zelda-girl Friday 4th Mar 2011 at 23:39

    Pokabu(I insist on japanese names)'s was the best :D
    robot artm FTW!
    :D

    Absolutely despising my voice in this, Tepig put out a brilliant show of popping there, but Snivy's utterly chilled out look won me over. I'm hopping that I can choose my starter for all the pokemon games based on a dance off.

  27. Munchlax OWNS Saturday 5th Mar 2011 at 13:27

    See kids, get good GCSEs, end up as a games journalist. Get bad GCSEs, end up as a games mascot.

    Imma fail my GCSEs now.

    Snivy was like the guy who knows he's cool without having to put effort in, Oshawott was going for it, but technically wasn't brilliant. Tepig, on the other hand... is a machine.

  28. Waldy565 Saturday 5th Mar 2011 at 14:26

    tepig.... xD

  29. KoreeluStromboli Saturday 5th Mar 2011 at 14:48

    I thought I was going to see an animated music video with the starters dancing, not people in Pokemon costumes. Anyway, Oshawott's dance was cute and the best; it should be called "The Oshawott"

  30. keshihead Saturday 5th Mar 2011 at 17:50

    Man I hate my voice.

    Not kidding though, this made me choose Tepig as my starter.


    Was that you then?? XD I love this, it made my day, and it's soooo cute :3

  31. RaidingRaichu Saturday 5th Mar 2011 at 19:48

    Amazing....

    Snivy Used Slither Shuffle!

  32. Jake 346 Sunday 6th Mar 2011 at 01:23

    Oshawott, definatly. Sure there may be some slight bias because he was my starter pokemon but come on, he really moved (and was cute). Tepig was a bit too.

  33. Red-Wolf Sunday 6th Mar 2011 at 13:14

    KML! Tepig's dancing is completely and utterly epic with a side order of chips! That video's hilarious! Oshawott and Snivy must have been embarrassed, not just because they were forced to dance in giant Pokemon costumes, but because they were upstaged by Tepig!

    And I totally agree with the girl in the video. Soon as I clapped eyes on Tepig, I thought: "AAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGH!!! I KNEW IT!! THEY LOOK RIDICULOUS!!!"

    But that's in the past now. TEPIG FOREVER!

  34. Cyberguy Sunday 6th Mar 2011 at 19:44

    Good thing Oshawott isn't sad. He looks amazing!

  35. jammy3000100 Monday 7th Mar 2011 at 18:31

    Don't you people realise? Their dieing in there, their moving all they can to escape the costumes not dance! (well maybe not but still must be pretty hot in those costumes.)
