> Don't know anything about the plot or unexpected trainer battles
> Plan entire team and movesets in advance
> Never use any Pokémon I've used before
> Trade Pokémon with egg moves from Black for maximum pwnage
> Go through everything blind, without any walkthroughs (if possible)
> Have six-on-six battle with mate with our in-game teams after beating the game (keeping the teams secret to one another)
> Pwn his ass

> Have a flipping good time.

I may play it normally, but I may do a nuzlocke (since I've been having a ton of fun with those)

I'm having a difficult time with this. I have no clue how I'm going to go through the game. I don't know if I want to do a monotype run with Water, Nuzlocke it, or what, but I'm probably going to go through like a Torchic with my head cut off catching Pokemon and boxing them and training them until I finally end up at the Elite Four and can no longer trade in Pokemon from the box. Definitely going to try and see all the features and savor each one while I can, though.

As spontaneously as I can.
Seriously, I've had it with all the spoilers, and the team planning. I'll just randomly pick my starter and catch Pokemon as I go along.

I love the idea of the cards, that's neat! " As for me, I usually go in with a pre-planned team of sorts, maybe changing it along the way if I feel like it. I will do different runs later, but not yet, until I've explored the entire game normally.

Just over two months now until it's released internationally, doesn't seem long ago that we were just finding out about it back in February! I'm sure I'll be more cautious with this game considering I haven't imported from Japan so I'll be more reluctant to check everything out before progressing.

Going to breed some super Pokemon for my team.

I won't trade anything else over to that game other than event Pokemon and my TRU Regigigas from a couple years ago.

All my first runs are as fast as I can possibly go. See very little during the main story and do everything afterwards. If I restart later I usually take an excruciatingly long time to complete the main story line.

It's not often that I ditch my starter Pokemon, but if I get White 2, I fully plan to.

My final team's gonna look like so:

I can't stand not planning out my team since I hate having glaring, unforeseen weaknesses to one type or the other (like 3-4 weak to Fire or Ground, bleah).

I'll try to do a proper playthrough, and actually look at the dialogue and follow the storyline. I'll probably try to use Pokémon I've never used before/that much.

My plan is to run through the game with Nuzlocke activated, along with the fact that no one will "survive" poisoning. That was something that made it so hard in the beginning. I'll also add rules to Nuzlocke as I delve further in. No EV training, no over leveling, so on and so forth.
Anyone ever notice that in the first few episodes pidgeys tried to eat caterpie, but after a while things like that cease to happen?

yea that what I'll do too

That is a really cool way of playing :3, as for me...I honestly do not know what team I will choose, but I do know I will be doing a normal run.

I plan on starting with Tepig again, but since Blitzle and Pansage are far in the story I plan on getting Mareep, since I did use a Mareep in Heart Gold and Soul Silver, and Koffing because I only used a Poison Pokemon like Nidoran (m) once on Fire Red. I also plan on playing for six days to get to the Pokemon League and the day after that the post-game.

Day 1: To Castelia's gym - 3 badges
Day 2: To Relic Path (northern part) exploring - 5 badges
Day 3: Mistralton gym with Route 7 and Celestial Tower visited - 6 badges
Day 4: East Unova
Day 5: Battling Ghetsis - 8 badges
Day 6: Pokemon League - Hall of Fame
Day 7: Post-Game

For the Post-Game events I'll go with the revisiting of Plasma Frigate and Nuvema Town, then Iccirus and Twist Mountain, then Route 15 since that's how the Pokemon are ordered on the Pokedex. Clay Road and other stuff after I go to all those places.
Also known as SentryBronyPlatinum or Shadowbolt Pegasus.

I would play like a normal human being
Just run through the game, explore, then collect every Pokemon.

I've never done the Nuzlocke thing, I don't see the fun at all, it'd be so tedious. Usually I just have one save file, ever.

For B2W2 I plan to breed eggs of the 6 Pokemon I want, probably ditch the starter in favour of another region's starter (and making sure that my rival's starter is weak to it!), then when the eggs hatch with my B2 ID number I might just give each one a run through the BW Elite 4 to level it up...I like to keep it easy for myself.
