I'm gonna play how I normally do when starting a new game the first time for the most part. I'm going to walkthrough the story at my normal pace assembling my team as I go along. There is only one thing I'll be doing different. As soon as I can trade, I'm sending over a Rufflet egg my from White to Black2. I really want to get Black2 cause it's different but want a Braviary on my team. ^__^

I'm thinking of doing my first type playthrough challenge. They give you some pretty good options to start with. Steal, fighting, fire, electric, and water all seem to privide 2 or 3 pokemon to start with early game. Maybe my second play through. I at least plan to not overlevel my starter and to try and keep at least 3 primary pokemon all with a couple levels of eachother. I've always overleveled my starter and it can make the play through pretty uninteresting.

I think I will ask my friend to finish up Black 2 and have him defeat the game. Then, he will unlock Challenge Mode and I'll have him transfer the mode to my game and start the game with Challenge Mode. I'll bet it will be fun.

Starter will be replaced with Porygon; team will total four members.
Apart form that, normal playthrough; no guides, no pre-research.

Normally I just run through catching pokemon as I go along. I've always just done that.

However it does mean pokemon that appear later in the story never get a good chance of being in my team. So this time around I'm going to be trading in some eggs when I first get the chance and just choosing my team that way. Partially at least, two of the pokemon I want on my team actually appear early in Pokemon Black/White 2. The other four I'll be trading in.

I think I might abandon my starter for the first time too. I'm just feeling a change is needed.

I'm going to pick Tepig, purely because I want my Rival to have a Samurott. (After seeing the anime trailer, that's the way it has to be, hahaha). However, I picked Tepig in my first White playthrough, and so.. I don't want my team to end up being a duplicate of that one.

So I'll pick Tepig, but I'll put him in the box (in a kind way... :P), and I hope to have a team primarily consisting of non-Unova Pokemon, such as Riolu, Arcanine, Lapras, and.. I haven't decided on the others yet, but there's plenty to choose from. I just hope they'll be available reasonably early in the game so I can have my dream team by the end of the game.

I won't be looking up any walkthroughs or guides. I've seen some videos on YouTube, but I haven't seen anything major in the story as such, so it'll still be a surprise. I guess I MIGHT use an online Pokedex to find out where Pokemon are/if I can actually get certain Pokemon in White 2. It'll be a standard playthrough for me, aside from the fact that I won't be using my starter, which is something I've never done before.

I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!

I will do a speed run the first time through Black 2, with either a color or type challenge, and then replay the game on Challenge mode and try to 100% it by going as slowly as I can through the story.

I'm probably going to grab Tepig and then abandon him ince I get my first Ghost type pokemon. Then, It's all ghosts. YAY for Dark type weakness, which means anytime someone uses Bite, I die... Then it's Crunch... Yeah.... Please reference the words below.

I'm going to take it slow as I possibly can. In my White2 my aim is too keep all of them, so I am going to be kind methodical about it. I haven't got a solid idea for a main team, but I do know that I am not using a starter on my main team.

I usually never go with a planned team, and when I to half the team turns out to be fail (I end up losing many matches!) so I change most of them. But since I'm familiar with all the pokemon that will be in W2 I'm going to stick to my planned pokes as they're all my favs anyway. And I will catch 'em all for the shiny item's sake. If I do it'd be the first time since playing pokemon back in grade 4 that I complete a pokedex lol...
