oooh can't wait for someone to make the english rom for B/W2.

the way im gonna play B/W2 is like normal going with the story. i really aren't that fussy bout my team the way it works with me is the first six Pokemon i obtain are my permanent team until the reach level 100 or i need a sub for a HM learner. and im also "gotta catch em all" quoting from Hikari and original Pokemon motto.

I changed my mind. Black 2 will be played first because I played Black first. White 2 will now be the game I catch 'em all on.

Play as normal... use a pre-planned team of six, level grind excessively, and take my time talking to people and stuff. I'll probably catch most of what I come across, unless I don't like them. Probably won't do much Pokedex stuff besides that (i.e., no evolving/breeding just for the Pokedex).

i decided i wanted a certain fire dog but other than that i winged it nd its worked out reasonably well, only needed to grind a little for 7th gym and beat the elite 4 2nd time. no wifi so that side doesn't bother me too much. when i beat wtc i might do a nuzlock or something to make it funner.
I thought I'd seen the Great Wall of China. Which, being honest with you, it's not the Great Wall; it's an alright wall. It's the Alright Wall of China.

I'm going to play it really slowly, over level my Pokémon, talk to everyone and catch all the different Pokémon I can, like I do with every new game.

I'll just be playing through the game normally and taking my time.
Really looking forward to getting it, but I don't know which version I want yet...

Still, I can tell my social life is going to go down the drain when this comes out. :3

I'm Probably going to plan what to catch. I don't usually plan out what Pokemon I'm going to obtain (Most times just think about it along the way), but i might actually think more carefully unlike my last play through B/W.

I want the game to take a long time so what I plan on doing helps. I plan on catching the right natured Pokemon that I want on my team, my preferred gender too, and also EV training during the main plot. No IV though, that was just tedious.

My starter will most likely be the one I didn't use at all which is Tepig. I'll end up using Archeops, Haxorus, Bisharp, Simisage, and Scolipede through my full run.

I will be taking my time, since, I'm planning on getting B/W 2 during the Christmas break.

I will talk to every NPC, getting all of the items including the hidden ones, catching every Pokémon, and of course getting the beneficial nature for the Pokémon in my team. Not sure if I will EV train my team yet.

For my playthrough of Black/White 2, I'm aiming to slow down the progression of the story and focus more on everything else the game has to offer.
The side activities seem more interesting this time around, so I'll definitely be clung on to those.

Just hoping to NOT blitz through the entire main story like I did with the versions beforehand.

Probably just a speed run to begin with and when I inevitably restart the game, do a 100% run.

Do what I normally do. Grind in the beginning until my stater is Lv.10 or whatever. Catch the stat worthy Pokemon then dispose put them in my PC when I find a stronger one. I'll take my time going through this one, no speed runs for me.
Once I achieve the "100%" save i'll delete it. Then try to go for the random challenge that someone here will make up.
But probably because i'm too emotional smart I won't delete it... for online/multiplier experience of course.

For my First run-through, me and my friend are getting opposite games and playing through alongside each other. I already have 5 of the 6 Pokemon I want Planned, but I'm not sure whether to change who I want for my starter. I don't know whether to ditch my starter this time around or not. Just because I don't want to repeat those 3 starters again.

I know I'm planning on trading over a Tynamo to use as my "starter" as soon as possible. Other than that I'm gonna catch what I want and try to enjoy it. I'm kind of glad my Japanese version didn't work so I can enjoy it in English for the first time.

well i'm starting white right now so it's a bit premature thinking about W2 but generally i have a single run per game. I try to achieve everything, talk to everyone and complete the pokedex. I do not plan the team (even just because i don't know gen 5 pokemons), i use the ones i fancy at the moment.
Due to the fact i got white i don't think i'm gonna buy black too
