Still waiting for Ninty and GF to give us a 3DS entry, that might convince to me to get one at last, but either way, I'll most likely be picking B/W 2 as the lifetime pokeplayer that I am. Another 200 or so hours...

Been out of the loop for a while, starting to get into the games again. Wow, the male character looks terrible. Going with the girl this time around. And probably going with Oshawott once again. The only one of the Gen V starters I liked.

I just noticed that the Driftveil lighthouse is missing. :shock:

I hope they add a lot more things to do after you beat the game. Some of the things in Black/White are OK, but most just seem like a "look what we have the technology to do!" sort of thing to me. Keep the C-Gear wireless crap, remove the Entralink and FOR THE LOVE OF GOD don't add another Black City/White Forest. If they do (and they probably will) I hope it at least doesn't degenerate over time.

Since finding negatives is so easy, I'll just make a list of improvements I'd like to see:

- less emphasis on wireless communication. Keep the C-Gear stuff, but remove the Entralink and Dream thing.

- remove musicals and replace them with something somewhat entertaining.

- give us more hidden areas to explore.

- give us more water/areas to surf.

- go back to the Gen 3 style of HM Dive.

- allow us to plant berries, make Pokeblocks, the pancake things in Gen 4, etc. etc. etc.

- make legendary Pokemon harder to catch.

Fix the above and I'll be as happy as a clam(pearl). I really liked the story Black/White had though, and hopefully they keep the same quality it had. The graphics were awesome too, another +1. Either way I'll be buying Black 2 and another DS system just in case.

Really wish there was a way to beta test this IMO.

I really hope to kill the HM's... give us an axe to CUT, a subway instead of FLY, an oxygen tank of DIVE, etc.

- allow us to plant berries

plantation11

THIS! THIIIISSS!!

Berry plantations should not be a Dream World exclusive. We don't aways have access to a computer or internet, some people can't even access Dream World due to bugs, errors, etc, and you can only access DW for one hour, every 24 hours. It's really annoying and unnecessary. The Berry Pots from HG/SS were fantastic and I wish they bring it back for B2W2.

Losing fly would be horrible... I think B/W's philosophy of (For the most part) using them for optional areas was perfect.

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

I'd definitely like to be able to plant berries... they don't have to litter berry patches all over the map, the Berry Pots would be fine. I'd also like to see the VS. Seeker and PokeRadar make a comeback.

That's a really good idea.

Sledge hammer to break rocks, a flying license to fly, a gym membership to push boulders, swimming lessons to swim, a flashlight, a really powerful fan, the ability to manipulate space and time to go up waterfalls, etc. (no sarcasm, I'm totally serious)

You really want to teach all those unncesary moves to your party?
#162 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4654 posts) -

Pixel-Perfect

Okay, no space-time manipulation, but we really need a flashlight. We know that they exist because we used one in Platinum, and they shouldn't be that expensive. A flashlight is necessary for exploring caves and I think every pokemon trainer should have one.

Swimming lessons could be extremely useful. The more I look at the new protagonists, the more convinced I am that they're wearing bathing suits under their clothes. We might see a lot of swimming/surfing and diving in B2W2.

Or we could use Black/White's HM philosophy. Yeah, that works too. :P

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

lol yeah, I'm in agreement. We shouldn't need HMs for something most people can do for themselves while HMs like Fly and Waterfall will always be needed.

You guys are really hype for this game as am I also,came back today and there was like 50+ posts in this thread alone One thing I wish they bring back the item storage for your PC cuz it's a drag when you gotta stroll down through a bunch of items while looking for the one you want,it might never happen though

Well I doubt a person could swim the speed and distance a Pokemon can. Flash, you could probably get by without, however a flashlight isn't nearly as effective.

Anything's possible with pokemon logic. :P

That's right, Surf would still be useful.

Whirlpool will be needed.
Rock climb as well. Trainers can't climb as fast as pokemon.
And Strength.

Pretty much every HM besides Flash and maybe Cut and Rock Smash. We're better off keeping HMs and using them for optional stuff, but they must be removable like TMs.

They aren't removable since gen 1 because if you use a traded pokemon to use Cut if you have the badge but not the HM and then remove the HM and save there you would be trapped forever (just an example).

They could give us the HM right after a gym badge. Or some other way that makes it impossible for us to skip a HM.

Junichi Masuda recently posted saying that he recommends that if you bought Black previously, you should get Black 2 or if you had White, you should get White 2.

....which is what I was going to do anyway.

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

If he doesn't have an extremely good reason I don't care, Black Kyurem is so ugly.

Say what? I was gonna pick Black 2 even though I have White. The cover for White 2 is a little too plain for me. :P

Although, in the end, it'll come down to what exclusive content is in each as usual. If having the blank white cover means more of my favorite Pokemon in the wild, that's fine with me.

I wonder why? The storyline wasn't different at all, just the Pokemon and a few cities.
#177 Posted by Sepewrath (28669 posts) -
Its not like the system can read your save or something, since all data is save to the cart itself.

Pokemon Black Version 2 and White Version 2 look pretty good. I still need to finish Pokemon Black though, I'm at the Elite Four.
#179 Posted by sonictrainer (15184 posts) -

2 New Eshop Pokemon games were announced:

One of them, called "Pokemon AR Searcher", allows you to find various Pokemon and then send them over to Black/White 2.

The other is a better version of Pokedex 3DS called "Pokedex 3DS Pro"

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

Hmm... if Pokemon AR searcher gives you access to special pokemon, then maybe.

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

Anyways it seems we got a new trailer. It doesn't have any big reveals, but it was pretty cool.

There's a robot Tyranitar involved, that could be interesting. I've always wondered why Gamefreak didn't have you battle robots like Team Rocket always came up with in the Anime. Even in colosseum with the robot Groudon he still just had a Pokemon battle with you. Seems to me like they could serve as traditional boss battles.

WHO'S THAT POKEMON?

#184 Posted by limonman32 (130 posts) -

I hope this game has more sidequests that don't involve battling than B/W did (Musicals felt kinda stupid). If it had the Underground like in D/P I would have loved it. B2/W2 does have a chance to renew my faith in the series though.

#185 Posted by sonictrainer (15184 posts) -

Magnemite has been confirmed to been in the new Unova Dex.

I just read all ten pages of this. Would have posted earlier if my main wasn't suspended.

We're not sure if Akuroma is the new Unova professor. He's a Pokemon "researcher" according to translations.

I do agree that he looks shady. He obviously has a huge role in the story.

#190 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4654 posts) -

There will be a Darkrai Wi-Fi event starting on May 9th to tie in with the release of the Dark Explorers TCG set. I'll include it in the OP once we know its stats and moves.

Pokémon Black & White: Mewtwo WiFi Event

EDIT: Nevermind, I added it in anyway. I'm not sure if the Current/Upcoming Events section would be necessary for a B2W2 discussion thread. Should I keep it or delete it?

I suggest posting this in other thread, to avoid mixing stuff.

New PRS Remix is out, today it's the Sinnoh Trio theme. For me it's a rare miss, this isn't my style at all.

#194 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4654 posts) -

I didn't like some parts of it. Sounds okay overall.

Eww what was that techno sounding crap? Lol
#196 Posted by Yoweeh (3025 posts) -

We're scans of the new Eeveelutions released or were they fake?

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

I'm guessing fake since Serebii doesn't seem to have anything to say about it.

#198 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4654 posts) -

Koffing, Sunkern ( :lol: ) and Magby confirmed to be in the Unova Dex.

Currently looking for youtube links of this week's Pokemon Smash gameplay.

Filb.de

...

I just realized that they wasted 2 spots on the National Dex for Sunkern and Sunflora. :|
Why, Gamefreak, WHY?!? :cry:

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

Eh, I don't really care about what they decide to put in the national dex.

First it was supposed to be cool that the region didn't feature any old pokemon, now it's supposed to be cool that it does. :P

Pixel-Perfect

A Regional Dex without old pokemon is cool for the start of a generation. That way we can easily adapt to the new designs and it'll be difficult to ignore them.
A Regional Dex with old pokemon is cool for the end of the generation. A generation diversity would make B2W2 feel different from BW, and people with nostalgia goggles won't complain as much. :P
