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 Black 2 & White 2.

    What are your favorite additions to this game and improvements to BW1?

    My favorite improvements are, as a whole, how different the Unova Region is and the post-game content altogether. I realize those are two huge things that cover a lot of different... Whatever (I can't articulate my thoughts at the moment) but these are my two choices.

    There's just so much to do after you complete the game, and I loved ALL of the new gyms, especially the ones that were remodeled. And then there's the changes to the Elite Four. Good God, are their entrances so much more awesome, and most of all not slow as **** and "samey," if you know what I mean.

      The repel option, its pretty convenient when you running through caves and the pwt especially when you can battle the first and second gen gym leaders.

      Stuff in addition to main gameplay stuff as a whole, compared to the likes of BW. Between Hidden Grotos, improved missions, medals, pokestar stuido movie thing, tournaments and so forth there's much more things to do besides the usual and more reason to keep playing the game too as well.

        They finally bothered to animate trainers properly for the first time. I hesitate to call it an improvement since this could've been done since D/P/Pt at the latest, but there we go.

        The repel dialogue, again, could've been done much earlier so all it is at this point is regrettable that it wasn't added sooner.

        Grottos are nice but feel like a waste of time.


        And I'm an abrasive cynic, I know. Even if I appreciate these things in themselves they are simply uncompelling. B2/W2 aren't bad, they just don't seem to have staying power with me, though that may be a problem I have with Pocket Monsters in general at this point.

        My fave features would be Pokestar Studios, the animated Trainer sprites, extra Triple & Rotation Battles, Hidden Grottos, Pokemon World Tournament, medals but my absolute fave is the message that tells you if you want to use another Repel.

          Okay, if you're going to list that many, maybe number them?

            Oh boy, the little things made this game.
            Search function in the boxes - life saver
            Dragging multiple pokes in boxes - read above
            repel chaining - yes sir
            medals - a step towards modern gaming
            free space - better customizable organization
            join avenue - what's more fun than leveling up your pokes? Leveling up your shops!
            key system - difficulty and trading cities was very cool and a step up
            Unova Challenge - A rogue like (kinda) feel tower exploration game that was actually challenging and engaging post game, really enjoyed it.
            New breeding mechanics - makes us breeders have less headaches
            Real rewards - charms, shinies, a lot of cool stuff.
            its the small things - again, so I can't really think of all of them now, though I assure you it is more than what was said above.

            Stuff that was new but were underwhelming -
            Pokestar Studio - meh
            I guess that's it. Though GF did streamline a lot of the game mechanics, trading pokemon and items is still a chore, GTS is useless, random matchup is a nightmare, anything that has to do with player interaction (what this game was built upon since Red and Blue) is soo tedious, and nothing was changed on a large scale. Hopefully Gen 6 will fix up this series to be on par with its contemporaries, GF is lucky that this is pokemon, and they can get away with a lot of their annoyances, i.e. pokemon is so awesome, most of these faults can be overlooked, but not for long.

            They could have done that in Crystal Version. I don't know why it took til diamond and pearl for poke animations to become a standard feature, and until black 2 and white 2 for trainer animations to become a standard feature.

            I'm a big fan of black tower. I beat it in 2 days, but floors 9 and 10 took me the whole 2nd day. It was quite a challenge, I found myself saying some naughty words >.

            One of the key things that I enjoyed was the instant reuing of Repels. Mainly because I find that after catching all the Pokemon, you rarely want to ever encounter wild Pokemon anymore.

              What I mean by 'properly' is the animation quality. The trainers now move smoothly and don't slide around.

                Overall i liked most of the new additions : Pwt, Medal box, Pokestar, 'Use another repel?' thingy and so on.The mod of the interiors of Gyms were also good.The animated trainer sprites were also a good touch.

                  I made the mistake of not talking to the Medal guy until after I beat the Elite Four

                  half-an-hour of mashing "A"...

                  I hate Pokewood, I just try to get through the one time you're required then I never go near it again until I have absolutely nothing else to do

                  fun fact: Red's HG/SS Sprite had black hair, but his overworld had brown

                  I love his Gen V look too

                    EVERY BLOODY THING, IN THE WHOLE BLOODY GAME! Sorry flr the outburst, everything in the game, is epic. Even pokewood, the rival, the new gym designs and gym leader looks. God Elesa looks so cute.....*Drools*...Who? What?

                    XD And the grottos, AND THE ABILITY TO CATCH OVER 300 POKEMON BEFORE POST-GAME.

                    I'm really fond of some minor things, really. I love that I can swap items between my Pokemon. Very useful for when I'm passing my Lucky Egg through my party. I like that the game asks if you want to use another Repel after the previous one goes out. It's just very convenient.

                    Oh God, I hate that. I haven't spoken to him in my English Black 2 except the mandatory part and I hope I don't accidentally talk to him lmao. v_v I think the concept of the medal system is great, however having to talk to this guy to get them is a pain. I don't ever talk to him and what if I start caring about medals? Then I'm gonna have to sit through an hour of getting them. If they bring this back in the future, I hope that you just kinda auto get the medal, like the achievements on Xbox games.

                      My favorite things are PWT, The new Unova Dex, Join Avenue, and other stuff I can't think of since the games are just that damn awesome.

                        The new "Would you like to use another Repel?" feature, the Medal system, PWT for going above and beyond the gym leader rematches that I hoped BW would have but lacked, and the variety of Pokemon from different regions in the Unova Pokedex.

                        The gym remodels, as well as the personalized remixes of the gym leader building theme for each gym were great as well.

                        And basically every other little detail and addition they made. BW seemed so lacking in content to me when I played it, but BW2 added so many great features that they're honestly some of my favorite games in the series.

                        This guy, this guy gets it. B]
                        Basically everything he said, But I'd like to get into more detail about the themes and the Repels.

                        Good God those additions are fantastic. It legitimately made my life more difficult to have to go into my bag EVERY time the last Repel wore off, select it, or find it God forbid I find another item, find it, use it, get outta my bag, and continue on and junk. When it first asked me, I nearly cried. <3

                        The music:
                        Hot dang. HOT, DANG. I've always dreamed of having my own Gym with a different theme than all the other losers, and now no one has the same loser theme. They all win (except Cheren). Good Lord they all win. Roxie's is cute, Burgh's is so relaxing, Elesa's is perfect and pumped, Clay's is a definite "mine" theme with a great funk vibe, Skyla's makes me feel like I'm actually in the sky, Drayden's is so Legend Badge worthy and so dramatic it's fantastic, and Marlon's is so serene, so much like a resort, and just perfcet. Good God, I am in love with these new themes.

                          Obviously the CONVENIENT repel feature,
                          And the PWT,that's the only thing I'm doing now.
