    I didn't find them as harder... I found them as more annoying

    I got bored so I decided to sneak a peak at each gym leaders' highest leveled pokemon. heh.

    And when I saw them I was like O___O so I went audino grinding... a lot. It was rather annoying >.> Monotonous training.

    But other than that, it was a breeze. In fact, I sparingly had to use items :3 Yay. So I ended up with like 300k-400k of Pokemon money at the end of the game. \
    or was it 200k. hmm i forget lol

      What about you? What do you think and why?
      To me, in between the third and fourth gym, the Pokemon start getting harder. There is a seven level gap in-between the levels of the two gym leaders' strongest Pokemon, forcing me to train my pokemon that had just entered their twenties to their thirties. It doesn't help that the Champion's Pokemon are going to be near their sixties. I guess Johto has me unused to how the norm is for Pokemon game levels.

      ... It's hard to say. I think Black 2 was easier for me but that might be because I didn't have to go through Twist Mountain and the Mountain you did have to go through in Black 2 you had Bianca with you. But I think some points might have been harder in Black 2 than in White. I think for me it varies on my team, how much I train, etc etc.

      I did think it was harder when compared to BW, but it still wasn't overly tough. Challenge mode really helped make more of a challenge, but I think the games gave you enough of a chance to over level your Pokémon to counteract it. Especially the Exp pool known as Black City/White Forest.

        I didn't think it was harder than BW. Of course it was probably because I had a seriously overleveled Samaroutt.

          I judged the both of them by "How hard it is to win the game after you get dat lucky egg"
          BW1 - be 20lvs higher then everything and destroy All the youkais
          BW2 - Easy? BAKA,All the lucky egg does in bw2 is make your levels equal thiers,And even
          then its still pretty hard.

          BW2 > BW1

              I thought that Black 2 was quite a bit hard tan its predecessors. I didn't really think that the gym battles were much harder for the most part, but I thought the amount of trainers and the higher levels of Pokemon earlier in the game made the game harder. I found myself training a lot more so that I wouldn't lose. The Ghetsis battle was really hard in my opinion, and Victory Road was extremely difficult. I had to go back to the Pokemon Center at least five times just to get through victory road. Also, the Elite Four was pretty hard to defeat this time around and I had to carry a lot of hyper potions and revives. Iris was by far my hardest battle of the 5 and Caitlin gave me trouble as well. Also, even the Team Plasma members were harder to beat. Cheren gave me a hard time too. Also, defeating N's Zekrom took me at least two hours because it was so powerful. I had to find a hydreigon then constantly train it until it reached level 65 at least. Then I still had trouble defeating it with my entire team.

              The game was harder, but overall I had more satisfaction when I had beat it in the time period that I did.

                In terms of main story, I didn't find it that hard at all. Maybe it had to do with my party and choice of moves, but even with my team being mostly steel-type, I was generally beating Trainers, Gym Leaders, and Elite Four Members having Pokemon considerably higher leveled than my own without much in the way of trouble. And I was using Genesect very conservatively. I beat Cynthia pretty easily as well and her Pokemon's levels were at least 8 - 10 higher than mine.

                Pokemon World Tournament, though, is another story. The Johto and Sinnoh Leaders are currently giving me some degree of a challenge for some reason.

                  It's definitely harder, but I also like the fact that you start the Elite 4 10 lvl's later.
