Do you guys still play through the fifth generation games? If not do any of you have plans to replay through them, be it for a specific challenge (Nuzlockes, etc) or just to experience Unova again? If you do play through them is there anything you hope to do differently from past playthroughs? Or have you set your copies of B/W and B/W2 on the shelf permanently? Chat chat!

Oh yes, sometimes I do! I can't lie, I absolutely enjoy the storyline from the Pokemon Black and White games, and they're always fun to re-visit them for general time-killing! Occasionally I do like doing challenges there too, like recently I've done a 'basic' challenge where I didn't evolve any pokemon, nor catch any pokemon that doesn't evolve. It was pretty fun! <33

Maybe I'll catch up on B/2/W2 sometime, because I did like the post-game stuff with it, with the White Forest / Black City challenge, and the World Championship Tournament, battlin' all those gym leaders and such! Though the problem is the lack of EV trained pokemon for that, ugh.

Oh yes, definitely. If you didn't see my blog on them I posted yesterday, you'd know that it's my favorite generation, and the sequels are still my favorite games in the series. A month ago I completed a Wedlocke challenge on my second copy of White 2, with Challenge Mode, a level limit and no bag items in battle. 14 deaths, half of them were after Colress in the Plasma Frigate and two were against Iris. It was really fun, because I got to use some awesome Pokémon which really did work. And I did one on White before then without the item restrictions, that was fun too but not as much as White 2 was.

Now i'm doing a Red Mono-Color on White for my Ultimate challenge there, just so I could give BW a chance for a Mono since i've done BW2 so many times. I even just bought another copy of Black 2 at Wal-Mart the other day so I could have a copy of it to have Challenge Mode for.

Haven't played it recently, but after defeating both games the first time, I've replayed them with different starter choices and completely switched up teams. There's so many new Pokemon in Unova, having six in a team wasn't enough to hold all the ones I wanted to try out. I think right now I'm around the fourth gym in Black, and around the second gym in White 2. I have a bad, bad habit of restarting Pokemon games and leaving them unfinished as I start a new run of a different game n__n;

I still play the games from time to time, but only for challenges--in fact, I played Black 2 a few months ago for a challenge I posted up. I'll also touch them when I need to transfer Pokemon, so there's that, too~ That being said, I never got through my English copy of White 2 and haven't done any of the post-game content in my Japanese White 2 and English Black 2 (even before resetting for the challenge), so I may attempt to do that at some point. Black I'm done with and won't even reset either cartridge because I love my teams (plus, why would I play through my Japanese Black again when I don't understand what's being said?) and White I started a Normal mono on but haven't gotten through yet.

I usually go on my White 2 game for transferring Pokemon to my Y game, but my main team is still on it. I'm still working through the White Treehollow, too.

On a side note, I really enjoyed playing through White 2, the post game was much better than Pokemon X and Y.

As of right now, no because I am working on my dex in X. I really love the fifth generation games though. I am definitely going to go back and play through them again.

Yeah I just restarted Black recently after finally purchasing Black 2 and remembering that interacting with a completed Black save file does something (Can't remember what).
Absolutely furious they've done away with all wi-fi capabilities on a two year-old game that I haven't even used yet though.
All pokémon games seem unique from eachother, but Black to me was almost like my first game again, as I deliberately avoided all spoilers that didn't tell me how to get Zorua (unlike HgSs where I spent so much time on Serebii I knew pretty much everything about the game without playing it), and with the whole 151 new pokémon thing the challenge was to complete the pokédex, making it like if I'd gotten LeafGreen when it was new and had friends to play with (never did get Landorus but meh).

I still play Black 2 occasionally. Sadly for me, I fell behind the march of the Pokemon franchise a little, and Nintendo shut down the Wi-Fi service right as I finally finished training the last Pokemon in my competitive lvl100 team I've played less since then.

Now I'm playing a lot of ROM hacks as of late, filling the void until I get a 3DS to play X or Y, and soon the Sapphire/Ruby remakes.

I've done all sorts of challenges in these games (Nuzlocke on both, a PMT for Black 2) and I plan to take some other challenges like monocolor/monotype in the future. White 2 is my favorite game in the series, too, so sometimes I've played just for fun with no challenge.

I actually was playing Black 2 earlier this year, but I forgot to save after I beat Team Plasma and I was sent back to right before I entered the Giant Chasm, so I ragequit the game for a while haha. I definitely plan on finishing the game, though, plus transferring all my Pokemon (several boxfuls o.e) over to XY so I can restart either Black or White over again

I always play the first ever Pokémon game I received and then progress through the following generations soon after. I usually do this before a new game comes out, such as Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in November.

Yes, I do, regularly, yes. A lot. Granted I CHEAT a lot but I play it a lot lmao
I just can't stay away from these games for too long tbh. I like starting all the way over in Black and White and make my way up to Black 2 and White 2. I've lately been taking a few monotype runs through it all, too. The games are just so awesome and unique that I can't help but play.

From time to time, I still do, yes. I've really enjoyed playing original Pokémon Black and White, so I decide to give them new runs every once in a while just so I could relive. Currently, I'm on a third White run; so far, it's going phenomenal. My current team consists of Breloom, Metang, Emboar, Staravia, Snorlax, and Gyarados, and these Pokémon are able to perform with each other pretty well. I do have two flying-types here, but that doesn't exactly matter; Metang is able to cover their weaknesses pretty easily, and same goes for Emboar.

As for Black 2 and White 2, I haven't finished either of them yet, sadly, but am trying to get one done bit-by-bit! I'm up to the last gym right now, so have only few other things left to get done before story is officially over. Very excited!

No doubt, I re-play Black 2 all the time; after all, it is my favorite game in the series. Perhaps it can be ascribed to the fact that 5th gen was my favorite generation, but I never get tired of playing Black 2.

Now, Black on the other hand, I was never too fond of. Having such a small selection of Pokemon to choose from really turns me away from the game, much like the original Gameboy games.

I did complete a monotype run on my Black 2 a few months ago (which was my 2nd playthrough of Black 2). Besides that, I haven't played much of the 5th gen since X/Y came out. But sometime I plan on doing the post-game stuff Black 2 has to offer.

I'm also getting the urge to replay my White. Just haven't had the time to because of work and the backlog of other games I'm playing. Not to mention the nostalgia held on that file....which is at 600 hours, which is btw, my longest recorded playtime on a single save file in a Pokemon game.

No, and good riddance too. I hate the Gen 5 games for a plethora of reasons and don't find them enjoyable. Usually I just fire up X/Y or Emerald when I feel like playing Pokémon.

No, I don't. I usually stop playing a Pokémon game when the next is released and may only use it to transfer Pokémon to a newer game. I mainly played in the Join avenue in White 2 anyway and the Wifi shutdown made it a lot less interesting to play. Also, I generally never restart my games, especially not White 2. It has medals I will not be able to get again (some online play and Dream World medals).

Of course. The fifth generation is the latest Pokemon games I have, and one of the best too in my opinion, so I'll keep playing it (and previous generations) until a 3DS and X/Y (or if I wait long enough, OR/AS) somehow falls into my grasp. So far, I've completed White 2 as well as Black 2 all the way up to finishing White Treehollow and Black Tower and obtaining the shiny dragons. I might try doing a challenge in the future just to see how it goes.

Yep, I still play them. I recently finished the Game of Life challenge on White 2 and I'm planning on doing another challenge on White

They're really fun to do challenges on!
