Will you go through the game normally? Or will you do a Nuslocke run or something special!
On my first run, what I plan to do is buy a booster pack of cards. Then I will have to use the pokemon on the cards in the game. If I find a card with an evolved form, I will have to train the prevolution up if unnecessary. (Does this have a name?)

Anyway, are you guys gonna do anything special? Just interested

That's actually a pretty neat idea about the cards, haha. n_n I guess I'll just go throw the game slowly with a pre-planned team. And then I'll get bored of this by the 3rd gym and end up just flying through the game. :D

As always I went with pre-prepared team and speed run (= see all in the minimum time :D).

I'll just go through the game like the other games in the past. I don't have my team planned fully yet, so I'll just go with whoever works for me.

White 2 will be a speedrun, Black 2 will be an 100% run. I'll be restarting all of my games that weekend. My preliminary catch-em-all goal for the 297 non-events in Unova is October 21, giving me 15 days (7 of which are school days) to do it.

I'm just a little crazy sometimes.
OK, a lot crazy all the time.

My romhacks and Essentials games are on hold until Essentials is updated.

I played it with trying to get as many things as possible, but my first file is always my "official" file so I'm working on everything now. I winged my team which was actually very fun.

Sounds like a challenge idea. You should bring it up in CI&D sometime! k done advertising my forums lol

Anyway, I'm just gonna play the game normally. Not gonna do a challenge, not gonna plan a team (OKAY WELL I am gonna have Petilil and Umbreon IT'S JUST A GIVEN oh and prob ditching starter but that's also a given), etc. And make sure I talk to all the NPCs so I can know who gives items and who doesn't. I'll probably be looking up guides a lot because I won't be able to read my game but oh well! Can't wait for it to get in. :)

I always to a TON of breeding in the games. THOUSAND of hours worth of breeding. Definitely want the round charm before doing anymore breading in the game!

I can't do any breeding till I catch all 300 pokemon #winkwinknudgenudge

Considering these games look extremely awesome, I plan to play through slowly as I did in Black & White, it prolongs the enjoyment and you get to understand the full game. I've already got a team planned so I'll most likely go with that unless I decide to change one or two of them..

What'll happen is probs I get through the 8th gym severely underleveled and I'll never finish the game cuz I'm too lazy to grind 90 collective levels (even if through the aid of Exp. Share) and I'll be extremely sad when the next game comes out and I haven't even beaten the E4 cuz I suck at games.

That's what happens every time I buy a Pokémon game so I doubt that this time will be any different.

So, I'm going to definitely be doing an all Water-type run, I'll take it nice and slow so I can enjoy every last thing. I'll also search for every little Hidden Hollow to make sure I got through every nook and cranny.

I'm just gonna go with the flow. I find researching it before hand takes the fun out of it. So, I won't plan anything ahead of time, and when I do play, I'll take it slow, catch as many Pokémon as I go through the game as I can and talk to everyone I see.

I'm currently planning my team, and since I don't complete or participate in a great deal of challenges, and with BW2 being a brand-spanking new game, I think I'll play through it slowly and do a proper run.

I know once I actually pre-plan my team but the last time I did that on an actual playthrough I made it so I got all my Pokemon halfway through the game and they were are at the wrong levels and it was bad, so I might just wing it with Tepig on the first run.

I am completely winging it. I know nothing about these games right now (being behind the times on getting information), so I can't plan a team if I don't know what Pokemon I can catch. So I'm going to take my time and explore each area as thorough as I can, probably with an old-fashioned paper strategy guide book in front of me.

I decided against doing a challenge for my first run through the game since I was thinking it might hinder my experience if I make my rules too limiting or something.

Essentially, I think I'll run through the game the same way I did for Black & White - I plan my team beforehand, and just roll with it from there. I'll try and take it much slower than I usually do, as well, and try not to get too impatient, whether it's regarding capturing all the Pokemon available in the area before proceeding, or levelling up my team to be up to par with the next Gym Leader before challenging them.

Probably going with a normal playthrough like I always do. I've been considering doing a Challenge Mode later as soon as I defeated the champion at Black 2 and give the key to a White 2 playthrough :3

Although, for the team, I decided to go rotation as choosing Pokemon for the team is tough work in this version P:

I'm going to catch all the Pokemon I see because well, you gotta catch 'em all.

I'll also probably pick Pokemon I like for the team, but also taking type weaknesses and movesets into account.

Essentially, I'll just do a normal playthrough like my previous games. No Nuzlockes or anything.

I'm going to do a speedrun on White 2 so I can use it for Wi-Fi battles and play through slowly on Black 2. Around 75% chance of doing an Nuzlocke on my W2.

Don't know if I plan to continue the rom version but for the actual version I was thinking I might just do a solo run through the main story. I know I wasn't considering that until now, but if I don't need a HM slave, that might kind of just test my skills or something! If not p sure I'll just play through like normal now. :(
