B2W2 is set two years after the events in Black and White. You can even "link" your prequel game to unlock extra character flashbacks/interactions where they'll mention your Black/White character. Kyurem has a new forme, as featured on the box covers, and it's up to you to stop team Plasma. It was really nice seeing old characters come back, and was great to see the map changed and new towns aded so you didn't feel like you were travelling the same Unova agin. And to top it all off,this time the Pokemon weren't 5th gen limited, as now you could find Pokemon from all generations in the wild. You even have a new "rival", although I wouldn't really call him a "rival" exactly. He's just looking for his dear sister's Purrloin. Poor kitty.
But here's the thing; the game was probably rushed way too fast and so that is pretty much where the good ends. Sure, you have Pokestar studios (fun but also annoying at times), and you have the world championship where you can battle every Gym leader ever, but the story is the main key to the game, and since it was "hyped" so much I felt like it was a letdown.
I recalled that the big deal of this game was that most of Unova is covered in ice. Ready for the spoiler? It's not. You don't get any ice until the last run with team Plasma, and that only lasts a short while anyways. And you can't even catch the mascot until AFTER you complete the main game (beat the Elite 4). I didn't even feel like I had a rival since Mr. Going-To-Unleash-My-Rage was too busy crying over a Purrloin.
So, if you love Pokemon no matter what, get this game. I still enjoyed it for the most part, just felt like it was lacking a lot in story. If it's your first time playing, then get Black/White and decide from there.
Onto the positives. The story is awesome. I mean, I was a bit let down they didn't have three in a series, Like Black, White and Grey, but I do love the story.
The story honestly is nothing like I expected so far. I was confused on how they would be able to create a sequel, even though I did wonder about N when he disappeared.
There were many surprises and some familiar scenes. I was pretty surprised when I received a Story line Zorua <3
So, it is an awesome game, especially for a sequel to a game that seemed like creating a sequel was impossible.
I totally recommend :)
What you can really expect is the same kind of story as always. You're a kid who inexplicably is chosen to get a Pokemon, then go get some badges, and then bad guys show up. Very simple, not really compelling.
These games aren't as linear as the last installments, which is nice. Hand-holding is never fun. Expanding on this idea, there are now difficulty settings! Yay! The harder setting makes opposing pokemon higher level, and AI tougher, which is nice for us meta-junkies.
Speaking of the meta-game, it is finally getting paid attention to, with easier ways to learn good movesets, attain EV boosting items and helpful battle hold items. This is great, because since the meta was truly pushed in the 3rd gen, it has always been a chore to get every pokemon on your team set up.
7.5/10, a nice, fresh update to a franchise that, by all rights, should be stale by now.
Black and White versions were so dope! I've played every pokemon game there is out there. (except Pokemon Go)
Personally, I don't favor the Pokemon of the Unova region, so I didn't spend too much time on catching all of them as they came until the very end. To add to that, the gym leaders were weak and by the time I beat them all, I was left with a low leveled team to go against the Elite Four. Needless to say, I took a while beating 40-70 leveled Pokemon with my 30-40 leveled Pokemon. But I did it (thanks to Samurott).
All in all, the quality of the games are going down while the graphics are going up. Hopefully, they'll get the graphics of B&W (and now set up at the max of X&Y) AND the hardness of Fire Red and Leaf Green, which I admit, I had a hard time beating.
