Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

Why do you think they are making 2 games for Black and White? Why couldn't they have done one game?

They could have made one game, they just didn't.

Personally, I feel it's story related and involves the concepts of Taoism that the Tao trio represent, which is why we got 2 Kyurem formes instead of just 1.

That makes sense! I never thought about that. I was just wondering what people thought about all that.

I think its to go with the Tao symbolism Thats why I think they made two Kyurem forms at least, though there will probably be minimum differences between the games, I would hope the story is a little bit different between them.

More then likely is a good deal monetary related. Although there is probably settle differences in how the game plays maybe different gyms or different team composition.

Yeah agree with Kenshin on that it's just business too. Also, I think they might wanted to go at it a little different with gen V as a whole, a lot of things about gen V are different than the other gens.

I agree with this. One of the reasons they made two games was probably to bring in more cash.
It does make me wonder how different each game will be, though...

Because they want money, and maybe they're proud of themselves for how BW turned out.

Its all about the money !!!
yeah taoism is one of the reasons but so many people would buy both of the games(especially if they have different storylines) gamefreak would rake in ALOT of money just because they made two games

The Aquarius loves a party. Anytime, anywhere is their motto. It is not unlikely that an Aquarius will consider a wake a good place to meet chicks. Aquarians love to be naked. It is even better if they are naked and crocked. Froot Loops is a very Aquarian cereal. So is Rice Krispies, since it will engage in a friendly chat with the Aquarian as he or she is eating breakfast. Count Chocula is off-limits, however. It belongs to the Scorpios. Aquarians use the phrase "Dude, man..." frequently when describing philosophical concepts. Aquarians have out-of-body experiences on a daily basis. If you are talking to an Aquarian and he or she zones out, consider the conversation hopeless. He or she is talking to the guy three feet away from you. Aquarians are fun because they channel people. Plus, if you tell them to, they will run around naked. Aquarians like astronomy because they've been to all those places. If you want to know what the food is like on Saturn, ask an Aquarius. Aquarians can allow themselves every possible vice on the planet, and don't think twice about it. That is why they piss everyone else off. They are cosmically entitled to do this.

Given that plans for B2/W2 were already underway before B/W, it wasn't purely a money related choice. The Taoism aspect works better with 2 games, and wouldn't make sense with just 1.

It's for the money. This thread is just a bunch of complaints, but we're all buying both games anyway.

You have a point. Maybe, some portion of it was for money but the rest was all for the Taoism factor.

It's a new move and it's a good move, making the same method using a 3rd game for every generation can become repetitive and boring, it's fun to change things up and these are more than just third games, these are direct sequels.

I think they did it to add to the duel factor of Yin-yang. Personally I would'ver perfered one sequel version but I'm not really complaining, it add the sense of a direct sequel for both games rather than just a sequel for a mixed story line.

Story wise, Black and White left a bit of loose ends that would have benefited much more with a sequel rather than a rehash of Black and White a la Crystal, Emerald, and Platinum.

However, regardless of how they did it, I think the most notable reason why they chose to with another two versions and sequels is for the money factor. GameFreak is a business and they are all about the money. Black and White brought in respectable numbers in sales, and I think GameFreak saw an opportunity here and took it.

Plus, it's actually nice to see them breaking out from the norm and doing something different. The fact that the Japanese release date and the International release dates are so much closer together also means less waiting FTW!

MONEY.
Lawd. Like, really and truly, as much as Game Freak loves to entertain their consumers, they love money just a wee bit more. Yes, they did leave a lot of unanswered questions, yes, people wanted to see an epilogue of sorts, but yes, and I can't stress this enough, they're a business. Businesses have but a few things in mind; making money, pleasing their buyers, making more money.

Like Aerilyn said, when gamefreak saw the opputunity they took it

Yeah the game has a yin/yang plot and it would be better complemented with sequels but it would also be complemented by the thin GRAY line between yin/yang (this is what many people speculated in the past) Both are ethnical solutions to black and white

Gamefreak probably had a big meeting discussing what to do,
1)have one remake
OR
2)have two remakes

And they obviously picked two remakes for the monetary gain

I think N will be returning, and depending on the version, he will have either one or the other dragon (Zekrom in Black 2, because he captured it in Black, and Reshiram in White 2, because he captured it in White). If they've done just one version, they would need to negate one version of events and choose the other one as canon.

Of course the other, more important reason is money.

I think they could keep N as having either/or because it depends on the version you bought before. So if you get White 2 and you had White, it would almost seem like the same story. Reshiram and Zekrom are supposed to represent the Yin and Yang. Kyurem represents the definition of "absence of". So Kyurem fused with either legendary means "the abscence of yin" or "yang" depending on which version you buy. Which is why White 2 now has Reshiram, rather than Zekrom. It's like White + White in White 2, rather than White + Black in Pokemon White. Does that make sense? Or am I confusing you?

I think they decided to make BW2 just to change things up. BW were very successful for them, and instead of following their usual pattern, they decided to stick with BW because it brought them a lot of money because the first two games were a big success.

Gamefreak came up with a brilliant idea for themselves to do 2 for the sake of monetary gain for them. So, in a sense, I believe they did it for money reasons, but then again, the whole Tao symbolism could have pulled them towards making 2 remakes instead of the usual 1 they have done ever since the beginning.

The next games aren't remakes of the first two game. Why? Because, first of all,
the new games have different plot (well, the story is not the same as the story featured in the first games), different characters, different gym leaders, and so on (i can't think of anymore). Remakes, basically, should be consistent to the story(meaning, it shouldn't be altered and should be almost the same as the original), should have the same characters and gym leaders. (except for Hoenn).

Anyways, I just had to clarify that.

Regarding for this topic, I don't know why the hell did they do that, but maybe they want to continue the plot of the first game, and add twists into them, but yeah maybe MONEY.

Proof to this is that consumers will not likely buy the game if it's just a remake. Why? Because of the replay value it will give the consumers. Who the heck wants to play the same game with the same story and have only few additional contents? Unless you're a Pokemon fan or you still haven't played the original, you will totally (in my opinion anyways) not gonna buy the game.

I was initially typing sequels, but somehow I typed remakes.
Quit raging over a small mistake.

But yea, most likely, it is all for the monetary gain of two instead of one, and in which I applaud Gamefreak for such a wonderful idea.

I've thought about this a bit and was wondering if it was the right idea to expand on Pokémon Black & White versions instead of continuing the trend of creating a third installment, Grey in this case. I'm not opposed to the idea of additional storyline in anyway, but what do you really think sparked this idea? From a marketing standpoint this is going to generate a lot of revenue for The Pokémon Co., but outside of that do you think that they really want to go so far in depth with this trio of Dragons that a singular third version wouldn't suffice?
