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.

I haven't played my copy of White since I completed it for the first time, but I might go back soon to catch more Pokemon to transfer over to X and Y. There isn't much of a post-game iirc, but maybe that's because I didn't explore much after defeating the Elite Four. I'll probably return to the games soon.

I found Generation V to be my least favorite generation. It was boring and nothing was interesting.

I haven't found time to replay my 5th Gen games yet, but who knows maybe I will find time to play them again if I get bored with X anytime soon. 5th Gen will always be a true fave in my opinion so no surprise if I do go back to playing it.

Generation 5 is actually my overall favorite generation, alongside generation 3. I find myself replaying them quite often, particularly the Blaze Black and Volt White hacks. Those are utterly fantastic and remove any problems I have with Generation 5 as a whole.

On occasions I do play my Unova teams, I can't abandon them either.

I do for challenges. Unova is actually a pretty great region to play a monotype in (which is the challenge I primarily do), since all of the types are well-represented in both BW and B2W2. Also, Audino grinding is a lot more fun and easier than training at Mt. Silver in GSC/HGSS o.o

Yeah, since BW/2 is some of may favorite Pokemon Games. The battle animations, story, Pokemon World tournament, Challenge Modes, and awesome music just keep bringing me back.

I don't get around to playing my 3DS much so... not really. But, I literally like replay them in my head, if that's weird, whenever I feel like I want to escape to another world. Like Unova's been my fav region forever, and in my head I just replay the whole thing over, or just reimagine the journey, or just listen to music or look up pics of the game randomly, just so I feel back into the journey. I am weird yes. C:

But yes I will replay them in actuality at some point but I don't want to restart all the special memories ;_;

Gen 5 happens to be my favorite gen to play Challenges in. BW2 in particular are fantastic! I've probably played more challenges in gen 5 than any other gen, although FRLG set comes a close second. Something about Unova is just perfect for Challenges. Maybe it's the linear nature of the region, maybe it's the story line that is actually interesting and not totally mind numbing to sit through. Hell, maybe it's the extremely streamlined battle system, that's actually quicker than XY. Point is, I love these games, and probably won't stop playing them for a long time.

I'll come around and play it again when I feel like it. I just finished up my White 2 playthrough with a NASCAR-based team, and I want to do it again with a different starter. Also, 5th gen is my 2nd favorite generation, so I'll probably end up playing it over and over.

I haven't played them in well over a year, I think. I've been wanting to replay my White Version for a while but I usually just keep playing XY or I replay the other games. Gen V was probably my least favorite but I still like it in some ways and want to give it more chances, because I've only played the games maybe three times, meanwhile I'm already on my fourth playthrough of XY.

Absolutely not and will not unless a remake is made on the 3ds. A lot of people liked these games but they just felt weird to me I didn't even finish b2. The sprites is the one thing I could not stand they just hurt my eyes, they were so pixelated that pokemon red was looking good. That's just my opinion.

I tried playing W2 after I got bored with X & Y but I just couldn't get into it. By the time I got to Castelia City I realized I was completely bored with this game as well. I was never a huge 5th gen fan anyway so I guess that's why.

Considering I sold my copy, no. I always regret selling my Pokemon games afterwards. You think one day I would learn not to :/

I've never restarted my Black or White 2 games because I think after playing solidly through two Unova games in succession when they were released I kind of had my fill of them, plus if I ever get the urge to play through an earlier generation game its usually 4th gen, I just prefer the stories etc. on those games.


Nowadays I'll only really play 5th gen to catch legendaries I didn't know about but that's not to say I'll never replay either game, it's just with ORAS coming up and my preference for the other generations it'll probably be a long time before I get the urge to do so.

Answering the main question (duh).

Honestly I've beaten only 6 Gyms at my first White playthrough and I decided to end here, so yeah I don't play the 5th Gen anymore. It's my least favorite Gen and my least favorite region.

Well, I actually just picked up my Black 2 version today, because it turns out I hadn't finished my replay of it! I think I was close to being done, then I fell asleep without saving my 3DS and I didn't want to redo fighting Team Plasma so I put the game down for a long time, haha.

I wanted to explore Unova again but my Black 2 save file corrupted, so I started a new save file on White 2 (even though it's my lesser fave of the sequels) and now I have 5 Gym Badges and training up for Skyla.

I might usually play it when I get bored with my X.

It's been nearly two years since I played a gen v game. Aside from a few Pokemon I find cool, I don't really think too highly of gen v.

I haven't in about a year or so. I lost my White copy and haven't been motivated to get a new one haha. I might give them a go again soon, but it will be after I play through ORAS.

So I pulled out my main White 2 version earlier today, and decided to bust out one of my Black 2 copies (the one I did Time Warp on last month, that I did the after-game stuff not documented here) and do some Funfest missions. Since I had none completed on that Black 2 version, I was able to get in some nice opportunities. I did a whole bunch, and got my Black Entree Level on the Entralink from Level 19 to Level 30 in the course of one evening. I still have my White Entree Level to take care of, which is only Level 10 but I have another White 2 version that's untouched with the Entralink so I can take that up and hopefully work my way up from there, not to mention my main game still has a few unfinished levels to take. I will get that White Card. Just shows the game still has its charm to me (:
