The fiendishly compelling Pokemon series romps back to life this week as Pokemon White and Black finish first and second in the UK all-formats top 40.

Fellow newcomer Fight Night Champion dances around in third.

Their arrival reshuffles the pack as Bulletstorm leapfrogs last week's leader Killzone 3 - those games now placing fourth and fifth respectively.

Call of Duty: Black Ops is sixth, Just Dance 2 seventh, FIFA 11 eighth, Dead Space 2 ninth and Wii Party 10th.

Lower-finishing newcomers are Dawn of War II: Retribution in 17th and MMO Rift in 18th.

THQ's new uDraw tablet device for Wii had a lacklustre first week, with bundled software uDraw Studio finishing 11th on the Wii specific chart.
