View Full Version : [B2/W2] The disappointments

So as information rushes out about Black 2 and White 2, we find out things that have probably disappointed your image of the games.

What features were you hoping to see, just to have them crushed?

I was hoping for these games to be 3DS titles outright (and given they're not the "third game", why not?!) but admittedly, they're still DSi games so I'm more than happy to snap them up.

I'm sure a fair bunch of you are sad that Pokémon still don't follow you. (Pundits like me were thinking it wouldn't happen anyway.)

Expect that more disappointments will appear over time as more news comes out… and come back here to rant about those, too!

I'll have to admit, I'm one of the many who were disappointed to see that the following feature was not brought into the games. However, I was expecting this to be likely, so I wasn't too disappointed.

Another thing I would have liked, was for contests to be brought back. & Instead it looks like we have a movie film business thing going on, which only looks slightly more interesting than Musicals.

I'm sure there were some slight disappointments I could pick up so far, but these are the only two that I would say bothers me the most? I could be forgetting something, but as more news comes along I'll just see.

Not being 3DS titles is my only major chagrin; Crystal was on the GBC in its time, not to mention that the DS is about eight years old.

I'm definitely disappointed about it not being on the 3DS, especially after I purchased one thinking that the next games to come out would be on it. GF was one of the first companies to receive development tools for the system and they were bragging about doing great things with it.
I know they'll eventually be on there, but yeah.

It's a little hard to determine what i'm disappointed about at the moment about the games, but i'd have to say that the male character, though that's another thread.
I would have liked to see pokemon following me again, but it's not really hurting my thoughts on B2/W2.

I'm disappointed that there aren't 3DS exclusive features- it'd be awesome to see the Hiougi Town lookout in 3D, but if they don't improve the C-Gear, I'll be sad.

Oh and that red in the Pokedex is ugly js

I'm kind of glad they didn't bring back the Pokemon following you feature. If they keep using it, the feature just won't feel special anymore. The only disappointment for me so far is that they replaced Professor Juniper.

Eevee. Legit, that's my main disappointment over this entire game. Like, I HATE that they brought that little gremlin back. I do wish that they don't add TOO many of the old Pokemon into the game, but, of course knowing them, they will (For crying out loud, Metagross is what, #252 in the dex?).

I know right? Wasn't something said about the Company or something wanting to keep DS owners in mind a little longer yet also show off with the 3DS or something(don't quote me)?

Might have missread something somewhere but I think this would have been a perfect opportunity to add in some 3DS exclusive features while still keeping them mainly DS games. If these are going to be the last games of gen 5, mixing 3(DS) would have been a nice way to go out 'with a bang'.

Can't say I'm too disappointed with much right now. Its going pretty much how I've pictured since the revealing of the two Kyurem Forms and the Sequel status. Gotta say I'm impressed with some of the changes. Still early though.

Pretty much this^. Even if it is a fan service move to quell peoples complaining about how there is no old pokemon(prior to getting past Elite Four & N Castle) I still don't think they should have went through with it. There is going to be complaining regardless. If they want to have old pokemon in every aspect play the other games or wait post main story, or have someone trade you them. Too me it detracts from the uniqueness & freshness that BW established with no old pokes within the main story.

My only disappointment so far is the design of the male character, particularly his hair. I seriously thought that he was the female character, until the scan was fully revealed.

The only problem I have currently is as stated previously there is no follow-me feature returning, this would look great in these games but other than that there are no problems so far.

April 14th, 2012, 03:56 AM
What I'm mainly disappointed at right now is that it doesn't really seem too much like a new game. The pallets and tiles (idk what would be the right word to use) don't look much different, I was expecting some sort of revamp. But right now it just looks like Black and White with extra cities and features. Don't get me wrong though, I'm still very excited and will be buying both for sure!

I think only have unova Pokemon is why most people hate them. They got sick of the unova ones since there was not a good selection. It was fine for the first BW but i'm glad they added new ones like Eevee and stuff

My only disappointment so far is the design of the male character, particularly his hair. I seriously thought that he was the female character, until the scan was fully revealed.

Whats wrong with his hair? I have seen people with that kind of hair. Not sure why people think its odd

I'd say the male character except I don't really give a rip what he looks like since I always choose the girl.

I don't like that a good part of the region is gone.

There are certain Pokemon families (the one ending in "chu" being the worst, but also many of the old dog-based Pokemon as well) that if they do show up in the Unova Pokedex, I will not be a happy camper.

On the other hand, if certain other species don't show up (Meowth line and Flygon line in particular) I'll be disappointed at their absence.

Mr. Magius
April 14th, 2012, 09:49 AM
I'm only happy that the games aren't on 3DS because I haven't picked up a 3DS yet. xD
Seems to me like their saving their new 3DS Pokémon engine for the Generation III remakes?

Otherwise, like many others, the Follow Me feature is my main disappointment. I really wanted to see 5th Generation Pokémon behind me. If anything, I hope Game Freak has chosen to hide that feature in the screenshots, as a cruel teaser. >.>

For the most part, I expected a lot less from these games. I wasn't expecting them to be in the future of their prequels, or have to have new characters, new places, etc. I'm hyped!

Shiny Celebi
April 14th, 2012, 09:54 AM
Im dissapointed as well in the fact that old Pokemon are back, I feel this would make people sideline 5th gen Pokemon in favor of older ones. Thats really my only complaint.

April 14th, 2012, 10:00 AM
To be honest, I'm not disappointed about anything yet, and I've a feeling I won't be. The fact that we get sequels, after over ten years without them (RBY > GSC), I'm ecstatic. The fact that GSC were sequels to RBY kinda set that in my mind, and so I was disappointed when RSE didn't continue the Tohjo storyline. While Unova is unrelated to Tohjo, I don't care, I'm delighted that they're sequels full stop. I also don't care that they're not 3DS titles, seeing as I haven't got a 3DS and have neither the means nor desire to buy one any time soon.

droomph
April 14th, 2012, 10:22 AM
I'm not disappointed! In fact, I'm really looking forward to this as now I'm starting to like the "Unova-crappy-style" Pokémon and then they add in old Pokés OMGOMGOMGOMG And the 3DS thing is fine with me because that gives me more time to get money together and buy one :)

The only thing is that I'm afraid it's gonna be a huge letdown. But let's not talk about that.

Same here ^^;; Really, the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the male character: "oh, so we can't play as the boy?......WHAT?!"

If we really couldn't play as the male character, there would be riots going around right now.

I am really glad it isn't 3DS. I didn't want to have to buy a 3DS just to play them exspecly sense i just for DSiXL last year right before the BW came out. I am not really disappointed in anything. I am really intersted in the cops blocking the persons path in Nimbasa thought. I wish the following feature had come back,but it didn't really matter one way or the other.


I didn't like that there is only 1 main Rival that we know of. And I am kinda mad becaus ethey went back to the girly girl look on the female after haveing the other girl in BW

Ooka
April 14th, 2012, 12:27 PM
Not disappointed about anything aside from the male hero design. I'm glad there will be old pokes in, glad it's on DS (I don't own a 3DS), glad there's no follow feature. But seriously, the male hero just seems to get less and less manly with each generation, while the female gets more and more girly (I just might end up using the female, and I never do). Moar Kanto plz.

Really hate the fact that old pokemon are being encountered in these games. Unova is supposed to be far away from the other regions, meaning all other pokemon from other regions shouldnt be encounterable. Idk, that just bugs me.

Also no follow me feature annoys me.

April 14th, 2012, 06:46 PM
My only disappointment is the fact that I only get one rival. Two rivals added much more story to the original BW.

Bobbyman46
April 14th, 2012, 06:50 PM
One of the few things that I would be disappointed by is if they don't fix the really pixelly problem during battles. That really got to me in Black and White. I was really hoping for Black and White 2 to be on the 3DS. But who knows?! Maybe there will be "Pokemon Black and White 3D"

Twilight-kun
April 14th, 2012, 07:44 PM
I hate the male's hair
I'm so happy its a DS title, now I don't have to get $250 for a 3DS (add tax and game and it gets expensive...)

and dear lord the Rival looks like someone out of Dragon Ball Z

also, no following=good thing

Keep my pokemon in their pokeballs where they belong unless I need to battle someone

Bluerang1
April 14th, 2012, 07:54 PM
Yes my only disappointment is only having one rival. It feels weird travelling with only one person and I'd like a male and female companion. Why can't the rival be female?

I also hope we see the other protagonist along the way. I'd be disappointed if we don't.

Bobbyman46
April 14th, 2012, 07:58 PM
Well, I mean... you only had one rival in the rest of the other games. I'm kinda happy that there is only one rival because that way, Cheren isn't coming up to you every time you go to a new Route and challenge you to a battle.

PokeRaidenFighter350Z
April 14th, 2012, 07:59 PM
My disappointment is the new male hero's appearance. I'm glad it's not for 3DS (I don't understand why others want a 3DS exclusive Gen 5 game. I can't even afford or save up money for something almost $300). I'm also disappointed that the Vs. Seeker option is not there for certain trainers that power up in team and levels after the main story. And Prof. Juniper is replaced!? Why replace the only female Professor? I DEFINITELY LIKE to see older Pokemon in the main story because forcing players to go through it with only Unova pokemon is infuriating. But having older Pokemon in the regional Pokedex means that the Battle Subway Normal lines will have older pokemon in the rosters, right? If the Battle Subway is left unchanged, I'll be the most disappointed player yet.

Stormbringer
April 14th, 2012, 08:15 PM
The fact that they aren't exclusively 3DS games, and by the male trainer's/Evil Prof's really dumb haircut & design are my complaints, lol.

Mr. Magius
April 14th, 2012, 08:17 PM
Watching the new Pokémon Smash, I'm actually kind of disappointed that Game Freak chose to stick with the EXACT same music for regular battles and whatnot. Maybe what I was hearing was just a demo, but I would prefer to have remixed tracks, because those tracks DO get old.

I'm being picky, but c'mon, we have two whole new sequels that are set in the future ;-;

1: 3DS is $170...not almost 300. 3DS cost as much as an iXL.
2: Haven't gotten far enough to rule VS Seeker out so still hope for that.

April 14th, 2012, 08:27 PM

At first I wasn't that disappointed when hearing that the game wouldn't be made for the 3DS because for one I don't own one, and I didn't really care about it much. But seeing the trailer/gameplay just makes me wonder how it would all look on a 3DS with the 3D features. & I would imagine it to look amazing. :[

Yeah, I hope the other protagonist serves a role as a professor's assistant or something.

I don't want this to be like FR/LG, where one protagonist doesn't appear at all...

I enjoyed B/W cos of the two rivals thing.

Ephemeral Euphoria
April 14th, 2012, 08:59 PM
Well having the same starters was kind of a letdown but at the very least this gives me a valid enough excuse to go with Oshawott now seeing how I already used Tepig once before and Snivy is rather underwhelming from what I've seen, not expecting Samurott to be as great as some of my friends put it out to be though but if I can get the TM for Swords Dance I can make a pretty effective wallbreaker with Aqua Jet, Megahorn, and Hydro Pump if I do say so myself but again I'm not getting my hopes up that much atm.

That and Kyurem still retaining its Dragon/Ice typing regardless of what form it changes into makes me a tad sad.

Bobbyman46
April 15th, 2012, 10:09 AM
The only thing I didn't like about the two rival thing in Black and White was that they were constantly battling you (which got annoying) and that Cheren was much much stronger than Bianca.

I was actually expecting to hear about a Dark-type gym leader, instead of a water one(poison is a nice surprise though), but I guess we can wait because we still don't know too much.


The only thing I didn't like about the two rival thing in Black and White was that they were constantly battling you (which got annoying) and that Cheren was much much stronger than Bianca.

It would be a nice change of pace at having a real competitive female (main) rival for once, tbh.

Bobbyman46

The Follow-me feature was...okay for me in Heart gold and Soul Silver. The only thing I didn't like about it was that when ever I pressed A on my Pokemon, it would have a sad face alot and I would be like..."WHAT DID I DO WRONG?" Also, it got a bunch of useless items for the contests that I never did.

Akuroma definitely sounds and LOOKS evil (reminds me of Elpizo from Mega Man Zero 2 or Dr. Weil from the series), but we'll have to see his English name, since I have no idea what connotations on a Japanese name looks like. xD

hey! You never know, there are plenty of rivals in games that look really evil but are good in the end.Akuroma isn't a rival, is he? He's a Professor.
"He researches Pokémon strength and is experimenting on something to do with the dormant abilities of Pokémon."
Well if he's experimenting on Pokémon, I don't think that's a good thing..

I'm dissapointed its not on 3DS, I've been waiting for a 3D Pokemon adventure (other then Super Pokemon Rumble, I enjoyed it though). Older GEN Pokemon appearing is a bit confusing since none have appeared in Black until the east side was opened up to us, but hey, anything can happen in the space of 2 years... Hero's design isn't all that in my opinion, in fact the only Hero designs I've liked are Red, Gold/Ethan and Brenden, the rest I dislike, especially Lucas.

Bobbyman46
April 17th, 2012, 03:42 PM
Well the character is only a smart part of the game. I probably will play as the male character because he gets a higher chance of getting Male pokemon, So I can have a team of male. But I do agree that the main characters don't look...the greatest...

The only really thing I can think of it that they haven't done anything to pull back the screen, so the back sprites are still all pixilated. Hopefully fixed for next generation

Hiroshi Sotomura
April 17th, 2012, 08:35 PM
While I do notice the pixellation, I don't really see a technique that would improve it other than rendering three different back sprite sets for them to deal with the multiple sizes. Even if they pulled the view back or rearranged the Pokémon locations, you'd see pixels at one point or another.

Actually, I'm quite glad that it's not on 3DS. The latest handheld I own is a DS Lite.
I would upgrade to 3DS but there aren't enough games out on it that I'm interested in and forking out money for a new handheld for just one game is a waste of money in my opinion.

The onyl gripe I have is that they still haven't implemented following Pokémon again since HG/SS. Oh well...

NatureKeeper
April 18th, 2012, 05:29 AM
It isn't 3D. If it were, I would've told them to SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY. But, no, we need to get stuck with 2004 Graphics, crappy texturing and 2D pixelated sprites when tryingto make a psuedo 3D engine. This is truly the only disappointment- Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 look like they are DESIGNED for the 3DS- with the StreetPass-like features, the good implementation of 3D and so on. And getting Gift Cards through SpotPass would be NEAT.

April 18th, 2012, 02:51 PM
About the starters, it's kinda of a dilemma for me. No, I didn't really like the starters they had in B/W, but at the same time, if I was asked to choose a different set of three starters for the game (just based on the Unova Pokedex), I probably wouldn't be able to do that either.

One of my big disappointments is the fact that we now have yet another shirtless Gym leader (the water dude). Bare chests in Pokemon games is something I haven't particularly cared for since Bruno.

I just assumed they would set it so that the screen would just stay pulled out when not attacking, so you see the whole pokemon in the frame.

About the shirtless thing, sure it's kinda disappointing that they didn't put more clothes on him especially because of his weird tan, but tbh I'd be more disappointed if they didn't... since like, he's the water leader and all, plus the region seems water based etc. :x

Growlithe/Arcanine in the dex this time around. They were actually my least favorite Pokemon for a while (due to my fear/allergies/dislike of dogs) until Pikachu took over that top spot.

I'm actually dissatisfied with the revealed "old" Pokemon thus far... the only ones I would bother with would be Eevee (assuming I could evolve it into Jolteon in fairly short order), and the Beldum line.

I was hoping the next Pokemon game would be a 3DS exclusive game, but sadly its only getting some perks. I do hope one of those perks will be wide screen on the top.

I was also hoping they would bring back the First party Pokemon follow you again. Always thought that was neat.

Also, The appearance of older gen Pokemon suddenly showing up is kinda saddening. Yeah we will be able to play with some of out older favorites, but it takes away the isolation effect. I hope they have at least a good reason for it.

And lastly, the male characters hair is wack, if that's even a cool word to use any more. Not really a disappointment, just kinda looks funny.

I'm OK with the game being released on DS, it seems like Nintendo/Game Freak are showing respect for Pokemon players who don't have a 3DS yet.

The male protagonist's hair was something I didn't like but I'm OK with that, and I play as a female Trainer in every game anyway. The female protagonist in this game is really cute by the way.

So yeah, only disappointment was the male protagonist's hair.

Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 won't be released on 3DS because the first games are on the regular DS. It would be a dumb move to have the sequels on the 3DS and not have them on the DS. 2nd. A lot more people have the DS than the 3DS. The sequels will still be playable on the 3DS so I don't know why anyone on the net complains. Plus one can assume they are hinting at a possible Pokemon 3DS game with the stuff they plan on releasing on the eshop. Hopefully that clears that up ^.^

Now the only disappointment so far is not being able to transfer data from the first games onto the sequels.

I'm finding it really strange that people are actually disappointed with older Pokémon returning. Last time I checked, earlier on people were complaining that the Unova Pokémon got really boring and previous Pokémon should have been included. u_u Well we've pretty much experienced the Unova Pokémon fairly well, and to have them in the games again without the others would be bland, to be honest. We've seen these Pokémon many times, and sure we've seen the others many times as well, but to include them would be a given so the games don't get too boring (aside from the storyline). Plus who really wants to deal with trading to get more of the old Pokémon into Unova? :[

The only disappointment I have is the one I had since G/S/C came out...I just wish they would continue to add a second region as in crystal. After Johto you could go to Kanto. Why not travelling between regions in the followin games? I really think that black/white 2 should give us the opportunity to visit another region.

But why did it have to be the DOG based ones... why not Ponyta/Rapidash or something not based on an animal that, you know, has tried to slaughter me before?

Seriously, if they show up and the Meowth line DOESN'T show up, I'm not going to be a very happy camper.

No complaints atm. This game lets me use pokemon I actually like to look at while not having to a buy a handheld I don't want.

Also, I don't understand why everyone hates the male protagonist. N has green hair and a ponytail and everyone loves him.

So, uh, if I'm correct, just because you're afraid of domesticated dogs they can't have a pokemon based on a dog in the game? I'm pretty sure GF isn't picking the pokemon based on preference between cats and dogs.

Also, I kind of doubt that a dog has tried to slaughter you, unless of course you maybe pissed off some highly trained Rottweiler or you decided to go pet a wolf in the forest.

Um, they can throw in whatever the heck they want to. Doesn't mean I have to LIKE every one they do decide to put in there. And it certainly doesn't mean YOU have the right to say I can't have an opinion on it or that I can't express that opinion.

And every time they've introduced a dog and a cat Pokemon in the same generation, which one has always had the better stats? I call bias.

And you've never met that really nasty dog that my one relative used to have. That thing attacked EVERYONE. So much so that a neighbor had to take care of it during an attack.

Ahem, apologies for that diversion from the topic at hand. Back on topic, if what's being speculated in the "Water Theme" threrad is true, I'm going to be quite disappointed if there's an abundance of water like in a certain also region.

And I was also hoping they'd put those awful Musicals to rest permanently.

To be quite honest? I'm not going to start complaining until I have the game in my hands. I don't want to disappoint myself before I even pick up the game. So other than the male protagonist's hair I'm not really disappointed in anything. Old Pokemon coming back? Cool. Might be a little early for some but... I don't care. I can complain about that when I get the game. However, if more water types come into the game because of it then I'm not going to see it as much of a disappointment.

Just my two cents.

This really.
I was, personally, let down by B&W because I just really didn't get into it at all. Maybe it was just down to my personal preferences and not liking Pokemon as much anymore, but I still feel it just didn't hold as much punch as the previous versions.

Anyway, I am going to reserve judgement before attacking it.

People will be disappointed and excited for varies reasons. I on the other hand, don't ask for much from this game other than play an exciting storyline, which I also expect!

Gym Leaders? I expect them all to be different, doesn't hurt to be the same. Although I do want to see an appearance of Elesa and maybe Skyla SOMEWHERE!

Pokemon- I do believe there will be many, many, MANY return of past generation Pokemon in Black/White 2. The version differences may play a huge role. (Like Vulpix available in one, Growlithe in another for instance) Which can be a plus. I'm not sure how the fusion of Kyurem with Reshiram/Zekrom will turn out though. I have a gut feeling saying disappointments will occur here.

Disappointed as I once was for Black and White, I hope they can fix disappointments for Gym Re-Matches! Better bring those back!

I'm glad it's set in Unova, I mean they might as well make it the 6th generation if it was set in a new region. Plus we already have new protagonists and a new professor so if it was set in another region too, what could possibly make them sequels?

i really hope gamefreak step up to the plate and make a good game. i like the fact that pokemon like growlithe and magby are being introduced in the start of the game instead of the end.

the only disappointment i see hitting my heart is the play value after the elite 4. in B/W it was mediocre, but better than most. i fully believe this game will not live up to the hype i have for it. (if it does...i will be all over this forum praising it);)

Same here. It'd be nice to have one of the main-series games in real 3D.

It took a promo to get me to want to play it. Disappointments will just cause me to not want to play it and so until I play the game I have virtually none except for say... the male's hair.
