    I was wondering when this thread would finally get made.

    Get ready for helping people with that same 50 answers 100 times a day because they are too lazy to read the first post...

    Nice descriptions of the games, by the way. Lots of info there :)

    The first posts has too much minor/pointless info for my taste (which could all be covered by a line saying there is lots of aesthetic changes), while not going deep enough into the interesting ones D:

    And how could you possibly not mention the Difficulty keys for example.



    -Lots of aesthetic changes (interfaces, move animations...)

    -New protagonists
    Its a continuation of the story from BW,
    meaning you explore Unova again, but on a different path, discovering, many new places (including the starting town)

    -2 years have passed
    Tons of minor changes for old places/people, even more version differences.
    You meet all the people from BW, seeing how they changed, starting with the previous "rivals" Bianca and Cheren, who are now Junipers assistant and the first gym-leader respectively.
    The gym rosters and order have shifted a bit, also including a few new gyms.

    -Unovadex 150->300
    150 old pokemon were added to the story.
    Mostly ones that fit new places (like ranch->Mareeps)
    just cool ones that are now rares in old places (desert-> +Trapinch)
    or ones that were already in post E4 BW Unova

    -new places of interest
    Pokestar studios as the usual gimmick alternative to battles, and
    The world tournament, in which you even get to fight gym leaders/champs from past regions, but can also download new torunament sets as they are released (like teams used by world championship finalists for example)

    -difficulty options for the first time in pokemon game history.
    There is a feature called the Unova Link, which is a set of "keys" that can be unlocked and enable certain things. One of them can change the main games difficulty, to either making the AI easier and enemy levels lower, or raise both and even add an extra pokemon to gym leaders teams for example (in the E4 rematch they even use things like Choice Scarves etc.)
    Unfortunately these features have an annoying way to be unlocked.
    Beating the E4 for the first time in White2, gives you the Assist key, Black2 the Challenge key, which you can send over to another player at any point of their playthrough.

    -hidden grottos
    enabling access to lots of dream-world abilities, they are places that randomly generate interactable pokemon from a list

    -move tutors
    Tons of useful moves.

    -Join Avenue/Fes missions
    ...

    For anyone wondering which version you should get, at least from a mascot legendary collectors viewpoint, if you had White (Zekrom), you should get White2 (Reshiram) and vice versa

    Here was my initial reaction back in June

    Once you beat the E4 for the first time, you unlock Challenge mode in Black 2 and Assist (easy) mode in White 2. You can send these modes to people who have not beaten the game yet. It's on Bulbapedia and people already played the Japanese version.

    I hope this thread has good enough flood gates for the pokeflood.

    I wonder, how many newcomers will be and how many of them will be banned for asking for roms. :P
    Now it's nice and peaceful who knows what will be on this site next Sunday? :wacko:

    What Arras said.

    The lame thing about it is that you need someone who beat Black2 before you can play through such a tougher story.

    Serebii has a nice list showing how it affects gym rosters and E4. if you don't mind spoilers.

    If you may know this is not an info thread but a hype thread, But I did put a little info here. Too much is not needed ;)

    And plus this info is not pointless

    Ah, well that's unfortunate, I was under the impression you could change the difficulty any time using Options from the menu. Still, it's nice to see GameFreak taking some steps to satisfy a bit more experienced (Pokemon) players.

    There is now a separate AP thread devoted solely to the ROM itself. In order to keep this thread on-topic (discussion of the game) and clear of Poketards, it will be temporarily locked once the ROM is dumped, and everyone will be directed to the AP thread until the chaos dies down.

    Just a heads-up.

    English BW2 are "O" region games.

    Now there is a 99% chance that this is region free. I've seen the Game ID.

    So much for this being region locked because of "3DS interaction" =/

    Thanks Densetsu, you're a site (life) saver.
    But even if they're redirected, they'll still flood the site. D:
    I just know from previous Pokemon hypes, that when a wave of Poketards and n00b newcomers arrive it's just worst than Armageddon. :rofl2: :sad: Even if they're warned to not ask for Roms and don't ask stupid questions that were already answered, they still do it! :angry:

    Just from curiosity ... what do you think about the ban rate that will be next Sunday? Do you think it will be big? :P

    I know that preventing a Pokeflood is impossible, like trying to stop a hurricane, a volcano eruption or an earthquake. I just hope the AP thread will at least lessen the flood :unsure: I won't actually be updating the thread, it will be done by someone who has more time.

    We'll probably be seeing hundreds of new members in the coming week. I'm sure the ban rate will be extremely high.

    Well, I wish good luck to everyone while I still can, and I hope that it won't be so bad that the servers will go down, like when it went down on another Pokeflood if I remember correctly, but correct me if I'm wrong! :unsure:
