Outside of the lackluster Elite 4, definitely the most difficult game in the series (bar Pokemon Yellow, which IIRC had ridiculous levels). I had to buy a shedload of H. Potions/Revives every time I traversed a route.

Not complaining though! Single-player's much more fun this way.

Yes,the leveling is not as good as it was in BW 1. It was a bit annoying having to go up aginst pokemon 5 to 10 levels above your team even if you defeated every trainer. Actually had to get my Lv 100s from White 1 to do the Ghestis battle.

I don't think it was that much tougher.Only 5-10 level of difference when you're about to face the E4 between B/W and B2/W2, atleast in my case.But some of the trainers specially Ghetsis were harder to beat for me.

Now the ghesis battle was a lot easier I think- I beat th Elite 4 with Level 55 to 60 Team.

I thought BW2 started off with a decent challenge, especially toward the middle of the game, but the end of the game was stupidly easy. The Elite Four and Champion were a joke and the final Plasma battles, while epic, were much easier than they were in BW. The AI was also really inconsistent - sometimes you'd have them nailing you with some really nice strategies, other times they'd be spamming ineffective moves against you.

Really looking forward to transferring Challenge Mode into White 2 and starting the game that way though. I've heard it's a decent step up.

On white version cheren spanked me.. twice i think before i got frustrated and busted genesect out. I most def spent alot more money... potions, revives, pokeballs seemed to work like a rock. I enjoyed it though. It also helped a whole lot that big pearls and pearls respawn daily and i might be wrong but i swear balm mushrooms respawn at the abundance shrine. I really liked iris team ibthink my difficulty early on was due to i picked snivy... but once i started abusing move tutors and audinos i was goody. Now in black 2 which im currently playing my te is dewott' magnite, and trubbish, all around lv 23 - 24 and i only have 2 badges it hasnt been rral hard and i think trubbish is the only one yet to be k.o.d

Perhaps I've just improved in my playing skills, but I actually have never lost a battle yet in Black 2. I remember struggling quite a lot towards the end of Black, but in Black 2 I was able to storm through the game even with my team of only 5 Pokemon being 3-5 levels beneath the other trainers. Granted, I didn't feel this really ruined the game in any way, but it did shock me.

personally I think the game will be as hard as you let it if you spend enough time grinding your levels me personally I usually keep every pokemon I catch leveled equally to level 15-20 trough the first two gyms before I really start working on a full team and evenafter the 8th gym and closing on the victory road I was keeping my team of six plus a flyer and a alternate pokemon for the extra pokemon to know cut and strength as needed close to proper levels and had a team around level 58-60 and then grinded the team to level 65 for good measure before battling the elite four and beat them easily then turned on challange mode worked my way through most of the areas that were blocked off and pushed my team to level 75 before learning about black tower then through battling through it managed to train entire team to level 100 by the time I completed it so I don't know how much more we could ask for one of these pokemon games than being able to train a full team to level 100 with out having to beat the elite four 60 or 70 times to achomplish it so yeah I liked it a lot.

I actually played Black 2 on Challenge Mode, and if I'm honest I found the original Black harder...or perhaps more of a slog might be the right way to put it; I really did not care for Black. Levelling in this game didn't feel quite as tedious though, and I tend to get all my Pokemon to a certain level before I take on the next Gym, and I had no difficulties.

There was also the greater variety available in terms of what Pokemon you could use, which I think made it easier: part of what made Black difficult to endure was being limited to the fifth generation only for the entire game; my team was mostly fifth gen still, but the choice was appreciated. Although one thing I did have to do in Black 2, which I haven't had to do before, is use entry hazards (Toxic Spikes) and hold items to take out the Elite Four, and boost my Pokemon with the likes of Sword Dance before I attacked, to make sure I got rid of whatever I was going up against.

The post-game stuff is notably more challenging, though. Rental and Mix tournaments remind me of the stuff they had in Battle Revolution, only far more aggravating, and facing the Gym Leaders has renewed my childhood hatred of Misty in the games...

I'm finding all the training off-putting as I need to do so much before I can face a gym, so I've not played in a while. I know BW2 is trying to get us to use strategy more, but it means sacrificing my favourite Pokemon.

Well snap I definitely found this game to be MUCH harder than BW. ;A;
Like, legit, there was no way possible to have ENOUGH Potions of some sort in this game. I almost came to the brink of blacking out almost fifty times! Thank God for sure this time for that Lucky Egg, because without it my Pokemon for sure would have been too under leveled to battle the Elite Four. I found them to be much harder than last time, too! The trainers and the amount of them helped a lot in the training, due to their for some reason being much less Audino encounters, but even then, the training was difficult to keep up with, making the challenge that much harder. Not only that, but the level spike between normal trainers and Gym Leaders surprised the heck out of me a LOT. Like, yeah I knew beforehand thanks to all the spoilers, but dang, knowing about it and coming face-to-face with it are two entirely different things. ;A; I almost peed.

I found the difficulty of Black and White 2 to be perfect for a Pokemon game. I absoloutely loved that I was finding myself a little outleveled a lot of the time. Hell, even the choice of wild Pokemon got me stuck at times.

Really? I actually found it to be easier than other Pokemon games. I passed around the lucky egg throughout the game and didn't need to do additional grinding until Drayden. In terms on knowing where to go I found the game to be pretty simple except for the frigate password.

I found training the Pokemon boring, so I traded 2 lucky eggs from my Pokemon White game and attached them to my in game Pokemon team. I think what made the game more difficult was the medal rally which I only have 198 medals.

I thought navigating through the campaign was pretty straightforward, honestly. Most of the time the NPCs tell you where to go and what to do. The new caves were a bit tricky to traverse through initially, though.

Based on footage I saw on YouTube, I saw the games did have that point where you wouldn't know where to go. The new locations got a bit confusing at first.

However, despite all that it's still your average straightforward main Pokemon game.

I don't find B2/W2 that difficult at all. I have a penchant for slightly overlevelling my Pokemon, as well as refusing to continue the main storyline until my Pokemon are at least a few levels ahead of the strongest trainer in the area.

I definitely think the random battles you run into are tougher, I've found myself in way more sticky situations than I remember from Pokémon Black.

I find myself facing NPCs that are at either at my level or above/lower by just one or two levels, which is usually not the case. I feel like the early game is more difficult, but once you get the Lucky Egg and get closer to the Elite Four, your levels even out and it's not so bad from there on. But I would go as far as to call this the hardest main game that I've played.

Not too far yet, but definetly harder. I had a lot of pit stops in the pokecenter already. Several trainers seem to be as hard as previous gen gym leaders for me :/.

Am I the only one who found the game in general easier than previous versions? I never did any extra training and always found myself consistantly several levels (at least 5) higher than the NPCs. The only place I had difficulty were in the caves because of how long they were.

Eh, probably had something to do with traveling around with a dragon-monotype team and two HM slaves. /shrug
