Hi. Recently Serebii has let us know that various people have in fact received their copies of B2W2. To try and keep the B2W2 forum as clean as possible, please follow the correct etiquette on posting in the correct sections.

Spoiler Tags
For the sake of those that do not want their game spoiled, Please use Spoiler tags for major game information. I will be highlighting a lot of threads to give a Spoiler warning from the main thread page.

Search to see if your topic is already being discussed.

We already have a plethora of active topics and threads open right now and the last two weeks have pretty much been me closing threads that are already being discussed, moving/merging threads into others that are similar in nature or go into greater detail on the topic being discussed, move/merged posts to correct threads as they were in the incorrect thread.

I will list some of the more major threads currently open and explain what they are discussing.

While the games are currently being revealed kinda makes this thread pointless, you can still discuss your opinions on the storyline for the new game here.

Keep your discussions civil and spam free.
Remember 4 Word rule applies here and if your posts don't look like they are contributing they very well may be deleted.

Check sources, this goes in with search the forum.
Every once in a while someone will discover old rumors on other sites and pass them off here unknowing that they may be old, false, or mistranslated. Don't want someone looking or feeling as if they'd just got a failing grade announced in front of their peers.

Have fun with the discussions. Keep it clean folks.

If there is anything you think I should add to this list feel free to tell me through PM or VM~
