Picked this up and I am loving it so far. Only complaint I have so far is I tried to do a trade with a friend of mine over WiFi and it kept timing out/not responding. Must be an issue with one of our router settings since for some reason I can never join a party with him on XBL.

Feel free to add me. My FC is: 2666 9914 4534

I have the White version.

Have there been any good deals on BW2 yet? I remember at the launch of the first two there were a few deals so close to the launch window, I was able to get the Victini. I think it was a free Amazon credit deal I jumped on.

Genesect will be gone by the time the BF deals show up, don't think they'll be doing the online distribution for it again. The game itself is well worth the price of admission IMO. I do realize we're all CAG's here, but this being an actual Pokemon title and the fact that you'll (most likely) be playing it for 50hrs + I'd say just go get it.

Yeah, I think this game is more than worth the price. Its not like a Platinum or other "enhanced" Pokemon games that come out a year later. It really feels like a new game set in the same region, even making references to what happened in Black and White. I've put in over 100 hours already and I only just left the 4th gym leader. I havent had this much fun with a Pokemon since Silver, and to a lesser extent, Soul Silver.

Plus having the previous title lets you link in some stuff post game. Its awesome sauce, they made the AI smarter, more balanced pokemon to catch near the beginning (elekid and riolu ftw!) and seeing the changes from the previous game is pretty neat. Not to mention the Pokemon World Tournament and so much more ><

I picked up Black 2 for me, and, White 2 for my nephews. (Same way we have Black and White.)

I've put in a couple hours and have a couple badges. Good so far.

If I didn't have the players guide I wouldve had no clue Riolu was right at the beginning of the game. When I finally encountered it I accidentally 1 hit KO'd it. Took another 20 minutes to find another one.

I think Lucario is my most used pokemon now.

$29.99 for pokemon B&W2 at kmart

http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=330023

I already got it. I did have $5 off certificate.

Good deal for people who haven't gotten it.

At the first gym one of the characters before you go in to fight tells you riolu is at the ranch. I think that's what happened.

Some of the random encounter rates must be pretty low, since I run around areas for at least a good 20-30 mins before leaving. Still missing a bunch of mon's in my pokedex.

I ended up transferring my event Lucario over and rocking the game with him. Also threw over Keldeo and Zorua for a more balanced team :)

Is pokemon 2 just a rehash of pokemon black/white 1


Meaning if i play pokemon B/W 2 before playing 1 will i hate going back to play part 1

I did buy Pokemon white 2 off gamefly for 23 bucks BUT i have not even playing White/black 1 for more then 2 hours last year and would have to restart that to even remember what is going on....

but i figured you will never see part 2 at 23 anytime soon and what is even more nice i dumped an extra copy of BLACK 1 off on ebay for 22 so that was like swapping out an extra copy i had for Part 2 :)


now i have to play

heartgold
diamond/pearl
black/white 1
white 2

Playing Black and White will help you understand what is going on in Black and White 2, since their stories are connected, and beating the game will let you sync your save file with BW2 to unlock memory links, which are pretty much in-game cutscenes that reveal more about the story.

But unless youre a huge pokemon fan that has no problem playing both games back to back, it probably isn't worth it to play them both. If you don't care about trading your old pokemon to the new game, or using memory links, or even about the story, then it's probably not worth it to play BW.

probally need 2 systems to move pokemon from black/white 1 to black/white 2 though right

So I want to challenge my boys to actually collect all 649 pokemon and I will give them a Pokemon related reward once complete. They have Heartgold/Soulsilver, Black/White, & Black2/White2. Is it even possible for them to collect them all with those 3 games? I understand that there will be a few "event" pokemon they can't obtain.

That's a really good question.

I'm not going to go in and reference them all, but you should be good for the most part. The only issue should be the legendaries in Pearl/Diamond. But the rest might be done with a lot of trading. Like you can only get one of bulb/squ/char in Heartgold/Soulsilver, so you would have to beat the game then defeat Red and pick one of them. Then trade to get the other from your brother and then find somebody else with the 3rd.

They should be able to get it done if they use message boards like Gamefaq. I did that with Pearl/Diamond when they released and people were more than happy to give away pokemon that they were breeding.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

Started playing, and I'm tempted to get a Riolu, if only I didn't breed a ton of them last year.

I am loving the six gym. I wish there was an entire dungeon based on this mechanic, but I'll take what I can get. Now at the next city (seventh badge) and am puzzled at why this guy says he was born here and will die here, despite that this town somehow appeared on the map two years later.

The seventh gym is in Opelucid, which was in the first game. It isn't a new town.

I take way too long to make sure that I get all the pokemon in a certain area. I finally got into a 2nd fight with Riolu at managed to capture it. The first time I faced one I stupidly hit him with Gust, forgetting about it's weakness to flying. Now I can finally move on from the Ranch and the first badge.

On a side note, does anyone want to help me move over some of my pokemon from Black to Black 2? Mainly Keldeo and some of the other starters. I could send some extra starters your way for the trouble. I really hate not having a 2nd DS in my house!

Pretty nice that the Victory Road is a dungeon that you can explore but you don't need to go through the whole thing in order to get to the Pokemon League. What strange secrets are there? I'll have to wait post game. I wonder how the hell am I going to beat the Elite Four with two Steels in my party.

Finally beat the game, and I guess I over-trained since my lv 65s handily beat the entire Elite Four. Careful when going to Nacrene City, those wild Pokemon are strong.

I'm up to 4 badges, and I still have no idea what I want on my team.
Currently I have:

Grass starter
Munna
Growlithe
Whirlapede
Swablu
Ground/steel mole thing

I'm trying to use things that I never used before. I'm not really happy with Munna or Whirlapede. The big problem with Munna is that it doesn't learn any new moves once it evolves, so I have to keep it unevolved for longer than I'd like.
With Whirlapede, I always use a bug type pokemon in my games, but I feel like I've used all the best ones already. Butterfree, Heracross, lightning spider. I wouldn't mind maybe using that fire bug, I could trade over the level 1 I have on my copy of white, but then I'd have to get rid of Growlithe.

Just picked up White 2 today. I'm trying to use Pokemon that I've never used before. Snivy is neat. I'm hating Azuril. Riolu is... Interesting. I'm definitely considering dropping Azuril for something else. Any suggestions?
