You know when they announced it and they said "They'll be 3DS exclusive content"? Does this refer to the AR game thing? If so I'd be disappointed, I was really hoping for widescreen support for the 3DS!

#402 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4711 posts) -

I was hoping for Burgh to be replaced. He wasn't memorable during BW, I hope that changes in B2W2.

Defy_The_Fallen

Yes, Pokemon Dream Radar and Pokedex Pro are the 3DS exclusive content. I'm not sure if it's possible for a DS game to be widescreen on the 3DS.

#404 Posted by Defy_The_Fallen (621 posts) -

mmm... okay. I thought maybe just a little bit of extra coding might change it, because they're already resized on the 3DS, but maybe that's the actual 3DS that does that itself. Aaah well, thanks :)

#405 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

I'll be playing the game on my good ol' trusty DS Lite. Looks nicer and better battery life for a longer addictive gameplay session! :P

I'll only use my 3DS for trading and for going online.

Looking through the newest update and screens got me quite a bit more excited for this one. I still don't know which version I'm going to pick up though. I got White first, so I guess I'll get whichever one compliments it best in terms of available Pokemon.

Also, I'll be getting Pokemon Conquest. My hype for it is pretty high, considering it's Pokemon (my crack) in an SRPG (my heroine). I didn't think I could get more addicted to a game after what I did in Diamond, going as far as RNGing and all of that jazz, but I think this game might be able to take the cake here.

I'm excited for World Tournament. :D

ANIMEguy10034

World Tournament has to use the original battle music (redone or otherwise) or else I'll be a little disappointed.

And after watching the video, it does. My heart... it cries tears of joy.

I'm super excited for World Tournament!!! :D:D:D

Hopefully we get a Battle Frontier too (or something similar).

I can't believe this is gonna be out in Japan in less than a week! :D

I have some existing preorders at EB Games that I was planning on switching toward BW2. However, it looks like they're charging 39.99 for it here in Canada. They also sell the original BW for 39.99 whereas pretty much every other retailer sell em' for 34.99. I might just hold off on switching preorders if it's the same thing with BW2.

WOAH Is it THAT close?:o God damn, why do I have to wait so loooong!

#412 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

Although it won't be out in North America for a few more months, at least we don't have to wait as long as usual! ;D

A September release date would be nice! :P

#413 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4711 posts) -

Pokemon Global Link is live again! I love the new look. :)

and the Japanese magazine, Dengeki, revealed some new info and early game spoilers. The info may be iffy; different translations and stuff...

First the info:

- Apparently the first pokemon you encounter could be a shiny Patrat.
- The following pokemon can be caught very early in the game: Patrat, Purrloin, Sewaddle, Pidove, Dunsparce, Audino, Venipede, Sunkern, Lillipup, Riolu, Azurilll, Mareep, Psyduck, Magby/Elekid, Growlithe, Magnemite, and Koffing.
- The map will now list all the pokemon available in a specific area.

Spoilers and the in-game Unova map:

[spoiler]

- Cheren's team as being Patrat (Lv. 11) & Lillipup (Lv. 13), giving you Work Up and Homika's team as being Koffing (Lv. 16) and Whirlipede (Lv. 18) and gives Venoshock.
- The area you change form with Keldeo in is called "Oath Woods"
- Your mother & your Rival's younger sister will give you the Running Shoes and Town Map.
- You meet Alder in Route 19

- Rival battle in Sangi Ranch.
- You need to work with your rival to find a Herdier. If you succeed, you will receive TM21. You get the medal box in Sangi Town and six hints for medals.
- You also have two battles in Alder's house

- Bianca gives you the C-Gear after you beat Cheren. This unlocks the ability to trade. You will also receive a Pokédex upgrade within Route 20.
- You get to view Homika's father's movies when you reach Pokéwood.
- Team Plasma are first fought in Tachiwaki and then Route 20. Access to Castelia City is via boat.
- Team Plasma is separated into two factions now - "Team Plasma" and "Former Team Plasma." The original one sides with N while the new one wants your typical evil plans of conquering the world: "We'll liberate Pokemon and conquer the world!"
- Akuroma has some connection to Team Plasma, though it doesn't say what (like that wasn't obvious).
- Your rival and Team Plasma are related in some way. He is also mad at Team Plasma because they stole a Purrloin that was intended as a present.

#414 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

This game is gonna be awesome! :D

Aww man, I don't even know which Pokemon i'm gonna use.. they're even more to choose from than last time!

#415 Posted by YoshiYogurt (5973 posts) -
The new map looks much bigger than that tiny old unova!
#416 Posted by Defy_The_Fallen (621 posts) -

God damn. Europe gets it even later than north america. I'm going to be waiting even longer! I shipped over american versions of diamond and pearl when they came out, I might do that again...

#417 Posted by ShuichiChamp24 (5014 posts) -
That detour in the map!

Unova BW

Unova Map in BW2

Major improvement

#419 Posted by Pixel-Perfect (5778 posts) -

So? How's the conquesting going?

I'm kind of an addict even though I'd only give it around a 7/10 at this point. :P

#420 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4711 posts) -

I think the game is pretty good. I conquered my 5th castle, 12 more to go.

I should have been half way through the game by now if I wasn't so busy replaying Xenoblade. @___@

#421 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4711 posts) -

Some Japanese players have gotten the game early and we finally have our first review!

Famitsu gave B2W2 a 36/40, praising the after-story gameplay, Pokewood, the Fes Missions, and the Pokedex's ability to see which Pokemon are available in each area. The original Black and White scored a perfect 40/40.

After-story gamplay details in spoiler tag below.

Some interesting info about the games:

- The HP/EXP meters have black backgrounds in Black 2 and white in White 2.
- You can drag and select multiple Pokemon at a time in the PC box and move them.
- You can trade Pokemon immediately after you get your C-Gear. Even a Level 100 Mewtwo.
- The World Tournament is based in Driftveil City where the Cold Storage used to be.
- Iris is not a Gym Leader in Black 2 or White 2. :(
- The move tutor is in Driftveil City. He can teach Covet and Bug Bite, which cost 2 Red Shards; Drill Run, Bounce, Signal Beam, and Iron Head for 4; Super Fang and Uproar for 6; and Seed Bomb, Dual Chop, Low Kick, Thunderpunch, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, and Gunk Shot for an unknown amount.
- More Move Tutors(YAY!): Last Resort, Iron defense, Magnet Rise, Magic Coat, Block, Hyper Voice, Electroweb, Icy Wind, Iron Tail, Aqua Tail, Earth Power, Zen Headbutt, Foul Play, Superpower, Gravity, Dragon Pulse and Dark Pulse. Cost Blue Shards.
- Using a new feature called "Unova Link," you can connect to the opposite version of your game and get Black City or White Forest depending on which one you don't have by default.
- Repel can now be used again without going into the menu. After one runs out, it asks you "Repel's effect ran out. Use another one? Y/N?"
- The Move Deleter and Move Relearner are now located inside the World Tournament building. The guy who tells you your Pokemon's Hidden Power is also there.
- You have to play in the World Tournament as part of the story.
- The World Tournament has different battle theme music for the finals.
- Some old Pokemon that can be found include Budew, Roselia, Baltoy, Nosepass, Cleffa, Combee, Castform, Ratatta, Grimer, and... Zubat.

ZUBATS ARE BACK
130

-Evolutionary Stones, Macho Brace and some Lenses (Scope and Wide) can be purchased with BP.
- Apparently, if you turn off your DS/disconnect during a Wi-Fi match, the game will not let you Wi-Fi battle for a while. Your public rating will also go down.

[spoiler]
- After clearing the game, you will be given a Key - this key allows for changing the game's mode, from Normal Mode (standard levels) to Assist Mode (trainers' level will go down) and Challenge Mode (levels will go up). The Key also unlocks Unova Link.

[/spoiler]

So many improvements... :shock:

Unconfirmed news:
- Hoenn trainer battle music was found in the game. You can listen to it here.
Even though there's a chance of this being fake, it's still an awesome remix. :P


#422 Posted by sonictrainer (15184 posts) -

All the Gym Leaders' Pokemon have been revealed.

No word on the Elite 4 yet.

Each of the older Gym Leaders replaced one of their Unova Pokemon with a older one.

#423 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

Aww, you guys actually bought Conquest? I'm too preoccupied with other games to bother getting it. :P

I'll save my money for the inevitable GOTY Pokemon instead. :D

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG. This had made my life complete, I can die happy now:oops:

Hoenn is my favourite region and hearing that just gave me the biggest smile on my face! I wonder if it's hinting at Ruby and Sapphire remakes!!! Personally i'd love just a remake of Emerald, but whatever is fine, just give me a Hoenn game on 3DS:D EEEEEEEEEE I'm so happy xD

Sure I did, what kind of self respecting Pokemon fan wouldn't? :P

#427 Posted by YoshiYogurt (5973 posts) -
This is really looking to be the best Pokemon yet. I'm way more excited than I was for the original black/white. Hoenn music? Count me in, Ruby was my first pokemon game.

#431 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

I'm liking the sound of this new Challenge mode. It seems that with the E3 rematches, the levels are about 5 higher than on Normal difficulty.

Too bad it isn't till post-game. I would totally love to play the whole thing on a higher difficulty! :D

EDIT: Whoops, I meant E4. :P

#432 Posted by ShuichiChamp24 (5014 posts) -
#433 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

Dang, looks like there's gonna be plenty of catchable legendaries in this game!

Is it just me or is getting this Pokemon news more exciting than all of E3? :lol:

Doesn't seem like there's going to be a full Battle Frontier.

Hopefully the World Tournament is really good.

#437 Posted by gpuFX16 (1296 posts) -

Dat new info :o*drool* Totally getting back into my Poke-groove when these release. I'm still kind of undecided as to which to get, though. I decided on Black originally because of Reshiram, but now Black 2 has black Kyurem instead of white. Kind of wierd to have a different cover star on the 'sequel' of your previous version.

#438 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

Hmm... still no actual release date from Nintendo Direct.

#439 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4711 posts) -

Nintendo Direct just revealed Homika's English name.

Poison-type Gym Leader Roxie

1024.jpg?md=1339628739000

Basically the only thing they've shown that got me excited. Everything else was really underwhelming, but I guess it's my fault for knowing too much about the games. :P

Oh, and Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus' Sacred Beast formes will now be called theirTherian Formes.

#440 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

It would seem that the World Tournament has some kind of WiFi Competition feature. Still not too many details but it starts on June 29th for the japanese games.

I wonder if it's where we get new trainers/leagues to compete against/in via WiFi; that could add some nice replayability. :)

The eighth gym leader became the champion... That's already happend once.

Of course Iris is an improvement over Adeku, but from your reactions I thought Cynthia was the champion or something. That would have been awesome. :P [/spoiler]

Yeah, it would have been awesome having my favorite champion become the champion for 2 regions, but it would have been more predictable than Iris becoming the champion. Iris was training to be a gym leader 2 years ago, now she's the youngest Pokemon League Champion known to Pokeman. Drayden would have been a more obvious candidate since he was the one training her to be the future Opelucid Gym Leader. I guess the apprentice surpassed her master.

I wonder how this affects the anime...

More World Tournament details:

- The World Tournament has different tournament modes. The "Unova Leaders" mode allows you to battle Unova Gym Leaders with Level 50 Pokemon. The "Driftveil Tournament" mode only allows Pokemon at Level 25. "Rental Tournament" randomly selected Pokemon for you to use. "Mix Tournament" allows Level 50 Pokemon and you can switch your own Pokemon with your opponent's before each battle. "Rental Master" allows for higher-leveled Pokemon. "Type Master" seems to imply the use of specific types.

- You earn 1BP for defeating Unova's Gym Leaders and 2BP for defeating Kanto's.

[spoiler]

- Roxanne, the Rock-type Gym Leader from Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, is one of the many participants.

Dang, there seems to be a lot of modes and leagues within the World Tournament. This is gonna be awesome getting to challenge all the old gym leaders and champions. I wonder if they always use the same three Pokemon though.
