    I initially got Black, but ended up exchanging it for White because it ended up having more exclusives that I liked. So once B2/W2 rolled around, it made the most sense to get White 2.

      Yes, my versions matched. I got White and White 2.

      The Japanese Pokemon website even said that they recommend getting the same colored version (meaning Black & Black 2, White & White 2).

      Otherwise there would be continuity errors:
      *N will have the wrong dragon that he acquired two years ago in the game's plot
      *Opelucid City would drastically change with no explanation whatsoever

      I went with both White and White 2. It felt odd to me when I was contemplating picking up Black 2 over White 2, and eventually made the choice to stick with the matching versions. I'm sure having one of White & Black 2 or Black & White 2 would've been useful for Pokedex purposes, but I couldn't trade with myself anyway, so it didn't make much sense to me.

      I got White and Black 2. No specific reason, but I guess it shows my favoritism to Zekrom.

        I got White first and bought Black later at a lower price, but didn't play it as much. When the sequels were revealed, I decided to only buy White 2.

          Same here, I thought his typing was cool, Electric/Dragon wasn't something I was expecting, plus I think Black Kyurem looks cooler than White Kyurem, but thats just my opinion.

          I went for White and then I went for Black 2. I don't think I had much of a reason other than I wanted to, really.

            At first I choose White because I like its exclusive features that I can catch some Pokémon in White Forest. I was planning to get White 2 back then, but after I heard that White 2's White Forest now works the same as Black City and no longer what I thought it was, and after seeing the dominant blue in Black 2, I have decided to buy Black 2 and play it.

                I played and beat both black and white, but only got white two because I prefer Reshiram.

                I went White first, then I got White 2. I didn't realize when I bought it, the versions wouldn't match, so I was a little bummed but it's like you're playing Black and not Black 2! xD And well, at least I can still complete the Unova Dex the easy way lmao.

                  I eventually got all four versions, but since I chose White first I went with Black 2 on the initial release date.

                    When Black & White were out I chose Black because I like Reshiram more than Zekrom. Then I saw that Black 2 had Zekrom as the exclusive legendary, so, I got Black 2.

                    So, my versions do match!

                      I got matching versions, White and White 2, for continuity reasons, like N's dragon and the way the cities look, Opelucid for example. I did get Black 2 as a gift though, and I enjoyed it just as much.

                        I got White on the day it came out because I saw the ads and Zekrom and was like "DANG this game looks awesome. But, I don't like how that white legendary looks, guess I'll go with the black one."

                        Few years later, I finally got around to buying the sequel (After I'd already bought Y) and I chose White 2 because it was in line with the one I had and I liked the look of Kyurem-W better than Kyurem-B.

                          I started with white, and got black to get all starters, then got black 2 when it was released as i like Zekrom better, but also got white 2 shortly after.

                          I think it's funny that the OP was sceptical that people would buy White and then Black 2, when it seems to be the most popular option in the poll :P

                          Personally, I went with White and White 2. I was super excited that we'd finally gotten sequels again (if you count the Johto games as sequels to the Kanto games, which.. everyone does), and I wanted to do it "right", to sync up my story from White version and have an adventure that continued with "my White universe". Plus I'd be able to trade my Zekrom from White for Black Kyurem anyway, and wanted to give Reshiram a shot.

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

                            I got Black 2 first and played it for awhile then got White Version because it was a different color, but since I'm playing Black 2 and Y I haven't even opened White. I didn't buy White when it was released because I didn't own a (3)DS until after Black 2 came out.

                              I usally end up with getting both after a while, but I picked black and then black 2 that way I got both legendaries!

                                I deliberately chose two versions of the same color for I knew that I could get the remaining dragon that wasn't available in the previous game. Plus I was going to get Black Kyurem and White Kyurem simulteniously on version 2. However I soon afterward learned that you could only have one Kyurem alternate form at a time per each version 2 cartridge. Pretty much sucked.

                                Versions were Black (Reshiram+Kyurem) and Black 2 (Zekrom+Kyurem= Black Kyurem).

                                I got around it by alternating between Black and White Kyurem for each Kyurem.

                                  I got all 4. Bit overboard, but hey, I loved these games. My original plan was to just get White 1 and 2 so they followed the same storyline, but I ended up getting all four.
