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 i love about pokemon is that its main game mechanics always stay the same. When i imported white i felt kinda like i wouldnt enjoy it but i found a english walkthru on pokebeach and i had a blast. One of the benefits of having a Japanese copy is you all wifi downloads sooner than you would with the US, there are even some the US doesn't get.
    Remember the Dream world Cafe? we couldnt get it the states but because i had the japanese DW i got some awesome pokemon.
    Lol so to answer your question pokemon black 2 is already preordered and paid for, and it should come around Wednesday since i used the 1-2 day delivery option.

    Good luck playing that once your DS Lite breaks down and you replace it with a DSi/3DS. :P

    Oh yes, region locking. Most horrible thing Nintendo could ever think of. (Thankfully, the English versions of Black/White evaded said locking.)

      Lol true , I thought of that. My ds lite is only about 2 years old. And I do have a 3ds. But then of course I'm gonna import a Japanese 3ds for future games lol

        Previous generations I didn't care for the story because it was very, very simple.

        Bad guys are here, beat them up, they go away, beat E4.

        Ever since Gen IV, the story has been getting pretty intense, such as trying to destroy the world to create a new one through twisting dimensions. I love BW's story. But, the main reason I play Pokemon is for the gameplay, so it won't stop me one bit.

        Now, if were a game like Persona, Tales of, or Final Fantasy (except Type-0), then I'd totally wait for an English versions.

        Probably not. The only time I ever got a Japanese Pokemon game was Pearl during D/P's release in Japan, but that was because it was the first time I was actually keeping up with the news on the games from the beginning so it made me a lot more anxious. I have more patience now so I'm in no rush to play - besides, I'd like to actually be able to understand the game. XD;

        I'm... very very tempted, but unfortunately, I just don't have the money to do so, sadly... so I'll be waiting for the European release and purchasing both copies. Thankfully, its only a matter of a few months, unlike what it used to be like, so I'm honestly not as inclined to buy it, as I was White, but on top of it all is the fact that I don't have a Japanese 3DS.

        As everyone knows, there's some extras on the 3DS for BW2, and when I get a game, I like to play every aspect of it-- even if it is just a little extra on the side. So this time, I'll stick with when they're released over here.

          I can distinguish any move by the PP / base power / type it is.
          My only trouble will be if someone wants me to fly back to a town...and I won't have any idea. Like said above, someone will translate all the basics mad fast because all moves and Pokemon and stuff are exactly the same.

          I'll also be doing a Let's Play of it, so you can watch me struggle if you want, haha.
          I've played tons of Japanese Wii / PSP games, and I've managed to get around in those.
          Heh, Im the same way. I look forward to your LP, for I too will be doing one.

            i was undecided too until i realized

            One of my favorite things about pokemon (or any other game) is the storyline

            Even though pokemons story line is repetative, i still get a kick out of watching the storyline progress and READING the non specific characters conversation

            So no, i will not spend 40$ on a game I cannot understand
            I wished the games were $40, I got both even though I not read Japanese either but I like know what to expect when they come out in the US and it was $135 for both.

              I've never imported, primarily because I can't read/speak/comprehend Japanese. Doesn't matter anyway, what with region locking. I HAD a DSLite up until last December, when it died a horrible painful death. Poor thing's hinge snapped, on the right side, so there goes my Power light. I never even bothered trying to turn her back on. (fortunately i had just saved and shut down.) Now I'm left with my 3DS, so I couldn't play the japanese games even if i wanted to.

              I'll probably watch a few early LP's, and I'll definitely be following Serebii's coverage, but that's about it until fall.

              (I noticed today that Nintendo's Game Release page updated to have the new games on the sidebar, but it still only says 'Fall 2012.' Way to go, Nintendo.)

                RUMOR

                Not sure if this belongs here...but I just recieved a Tweet from Serebii that some Japanese fans have recieved their copies. Japanese forum members from 2ch will have the game in their possession....

                Get ready for the tidal wave...

                Yeah. I'm already seeing images and fangasming over it. Anyways, if region locking is confirmed to not be on the system, I may import Black 2.

                      I definitely will not be getting the Japanese version of White 2, just because I want to be able to understand every single bit of it. When HGSS came out, I'd gotten the Japanese ROM to play before the English versions were released, and because small things in the story were changed, it was hard to play since I couldn't understand everything. I really don't want to have to feel my way through the game, and if I ever get a 3DS I wouldn't be able to play it on it (due to the region lock, I believe?). So no, I shall just wait for the English version in a few months. It's totally going to be worth the wait :D

                        I pre-ordered my copy of Black 2 in May, I just got a message it has been shipped. I will get it in 1-4 days.
                        It's the second time I'm playing a japanese game. I think gameplay is more important than the storyline, so I don't find any problems with playing a game you don't understand.

                          I have the rom now and want to trade my white 1 team to White 2 so I can play White 2 fresh. How far do I have to be in white 2 to trade? I guess i'll play as far as I have too and it can be a preview till I buy the english version this fall.

                            135 DOLLERS!!!! That means that they each cost >60 dollers

                            Uhhhh no im 15 i dont have money like that yet

                            The Aquarius loves a party. Anytime, anywhere is their motto. It is not unlikely that an Aquarius will consider a wake a good place to meet chicks. Aquarians love to be naked. It is even better if they are naked and crocked. Froot Loops is a very Aquarian cereal. So is Rice Krispies, since it will engage in a friendly chat with the Aquarian as he or she is eating breakfast. Count Chocula is off-limits, however. It belongs to the Scorpios. Aquarians use the phrase "Dude, man..." frequently when describing philosophical concepts. Aquarians have out-of-body experiences on a daily basis. If you are talking to an Aquarian and he or she zones out, consider the conversation hopeless. He or she is talking to the guy three feet away from you. Aquarians are fun because they channel people. Plus, if you tell them to, they will run around naked. Aquarians like astronomy because they've been to all those places. If you want to know what the food is like on Saturn, ask an Aquarius. Aquarians can allow themselves every possible vice on the planet, and don't think twice about it. That is why they piss everyone else off. They are cosmically entitled to do this.

                              I already imported my copy and it's coming in at monday morning. I'm constantly resisting my urge not to check Serebii for spoilers.

                                I have the Japanese version of Black 2 and plan on getting the American version of White 2

                                and people said studying Japanese in school was a waste of time, HA!

                                I played HeartGold in Jap, going mostly from memory of playing Crystal and my instincts as a pokemon gamer.

                                Let's see how Black 2 goes!

                                    I'm going to wait since I'll get stuck and I like to play games without guides.

                                    As I've done since HGSS, I'm importing a copy of Black 2. I'm hoping it'll be here tomorrow, cause I'll be mad if it comes while I'm away for a week lol. I'll just ignore that I'm away and be like "OMG I WANNA GO HOME NOW PLEASE." But yeah, the good thing about Pokemon, especially in this day in age, it's not that hard to play along with a game you can't read. I get a lot of people that think I'm weird for playing it in a language I can't read, but that doesn't render it unplayable. If you've played the games as long as I have, you can kind of gather what moves a Pokemon is learning, what moves you're using, "yes" and "no" aren't hard characters to memorize, there's internet, etc etc. So it's not that bad playing in another language, you just miss out on story, which I don't really care much for in Pokemon games (sorry!). It's not a huge loss to me, so yeah. -goes to sit by the mailbox and wait-

                                    I couldn't play, haha It takes me forever to comprehend Japanese (I have the Japanese reading skills of a 6-year old with dyslexia) and I'm too interested with Japanese to let something like that keep me from understanding Japanese, so it's gonna take me forever to even get past the intro.

                                    So I'll stick to English tyvm.
