All of my sons love this book.
Busy Mom
I thought the guide would gather a detailed description on how to find and get all the pokemons, but it only depicts the Pokemon of the Unova Pokedex.

Good quality paper, and attractively designed.

As usual the guide is outwardly nice. Good quality paper, and attractively designed. The layout is fairly easy to understand. It starts with the pokedex, and ends with a series of lists (for example, an alphabetical list of abilities, showing the pokemon capable of having that ability).

The Good:
1. Full UNOVA pokedex showing pokemon moves, abilites, etc. (as usual in the pokedex)
2. Details about game features: Dream World, Entralink, Battle Subway, Musicals, and more.
3. Locations and special evolution requirements
4. Lists of items, abilities, moves, weaknesses, etc.

The Bad:
1. No National pokedex

This guide is a good companion to the first book. Although it might work as a stand alone as it allows you to know where to find particular pokemon (but without story spoilers from the first book). The first guide was more of a walkthrough of the game. This guide is more about strategies beyond the story of the game.

Note, there is a lot of the information in this guide was available in the first guide (such as locations for the pokemon). However, this guide allows you to find the location based on the pokemon (as opposed to looking at the location and seeing what pokemon are there in the first guide).

What I find best about this guide is its focus on strategies. How to breed pokemon, how to train, how to battle, and how to win at the mini-games (such as the musical). This guide also includes a weakness list by pokemon so that if you know what to expect, you can correctly figure out what to use against it. This is especially useful since pokemon types are not alway apparent AND a lot of pokemon have 2 types (and the 2 type pokemon's weaknesses are not always clear).

Volume 2 of the Pokemon Black and White guides isn't a bad book. But for those who bought Volume 1, you're paying to get a lot of the same information again.

Even though the guide clearly reads "Pokedex" along the front, be sure to note that this is the UNOVA Pokedex, meaning you'll only get entries on the most recent 150 Pokemon, the ones natively available in the routes you travel up until you beat the end-of-game boss. All of this information was available in Volume 1, which also contained a detailed walkthrough and I would highly recommend.

When you consider the Volume 2 on its own, it's actually a pretty good book. It contains very in-depth information on Entralink, the online web-based Dream World, advanced battle tactics, breeding information, Pokemon-catching tips, and more. Plenty of that stuff wasn't mentioned in Volume 1. It contains almost no maps, but mostly charts, screenshots and information. The stuff I found most useful was information on where to find Pokemon from the previous games, using alternate methods like Pokemon outbreaks, fishing, and trading.

If you own Volume 1 and are savvy to websites that contain this very same information (there are many) then you'll probably be okay skipping this. However, if you like having ALL the information at your fingertips even when you're away from the internet, and you don't mind its lack of the National Pokedex (all 650 of 'em!) this book could be considered a reasonable purchase.

I haven't played pokemon since pokemon ruby and was surprised that it was split into 2 guides. I decided to hold out for this guide as it was quite easy to find the steps to beat the first part of the game online and what everyone really wants is the pokedex with the move list. My first look at this book shows me that this is a big book and every page is full of color. There is a poster in the back as well.

I will write out the table of contents for you:

Unova pokedex index 6
unova pokedex 9
how to use the unova pokedex 10
unova pokemon completion guide 91

complete the unova pokedex 92
techniques for catching wild pokemon 94
use pokemon moves and abilities 96
catch pokemon that appear in the wild 98
catch pokemon while surfing 101
catch specially appearing wild pokemon 102
obtain pokemon through evolution 104
evolve pokemon by using stones 106
evolve pokemon through friendship 107
obtain pokemon by restoring fossils 108
get certain pokemon during story events 109
link trade for pokemon 110
catch cobalion, terrakion, and virizion!

The Pokedex (which is the same one as the Pokedex at the end of the collector's edition) is incomplete and does not include any of the Sinnoh, Hoenn and Johto/Kanto Pokemon, even though they have distinct B/W movesets. All of this info can be found online at pokemon.com, the new 3DS app, or any of the various third-party fansites. This book also doesn't cover the main quest (getting gym badges and making it through to the Pokemon League) - all of that is in volume 1.
