A Timeless Pokémon Adventure Continues
Return to the captivating Unova region two years after the events of the original Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games - the first time in the core Pokémon video game series that a storyline has continued, from one game to another. In the Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 games, players can explore new areas, discover gyms with new leaders and see how everything has changed in the last two years. They can even capture Pokémon not available in the original game versions, and battle favorite opponents from previous game releases.
Key Game Features
- The Unova region has changed and grown in the two years since the original Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games. The first towns players travel through are completely new, and some characters from the previous games have grown and moved into different roles.
- In Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, players will also be able to catch some of the Pokémon from outside the Unova region, such as Eevee, Riolu, Tyranitar, Arcanine and Mareep, right from the start of the game.
- Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 feature the Pokémon World Tournament, an exciting battle arena where players will be able to take on numerous gym leaders and champions from previous Pokémon video games. Fans of the series will be able to battle trainers like Lance, champion from the Johto Region, and Volkner, gym leader from the Sinnoh Region. Players can also use a variety of battle styles and moves found in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 against these classic opponents.

I found Pokemon Black and White to be the first games in the Pokemon series that deeply disappointed me. I found the music to be, for the most part, boring and uninspired. They took away so many things that had come to make playing the Pokemon games so interesting and varied, such as the berry-growing and the Pokemon contests (which were replaced by musicals). And I disliked the direction they took with the story. I would have preferred if they actually just kept it as before, rather than introducing the idea that maybe having Pokemon battle each other wasn't ethical and then completely going with the argument that "It helps Pokemon reach their true potential." As a 20-year old college student, it just seems a bit ridiculous, though I wonder if children blindly accept this explanation. Also, I felt that the games were lacking post-game content that was varied. The Battle Subway is a challenge, but after a while it gets boring as there is not much variety to it.
Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, however, deliver where the first two games did not. First of all, the music in these two games is beautiful. There are many great new themes, especially in the new beginning cities and towns. The theme for Aspertia City (that's right, CITY - it has its own gym and Pokemon Center) is a breath of fresh air, and completely different from all starting themes before it. Quite honestly, it is one of the best in the series.
Story wise, I feel that they toned it down with all of the ethical stuff and turned it more into a traditional hero-versus-Team Rocket story, which Game Freak has always done well.
In terms of post-game content, this game has a lot to offer.Read more ›
Game Freak made a surprising move in announcing "Black and White 2", as no games had ever had direct sequels before - immediately visiting a new region ought to have killed the game while it was still an idea. It made it through somehow though, and I'm glad it did, because these games are packed so full of new content I have no doubt that I got my money's worth. From the new storyline to new areas to the medal system (a nod to Steam's "Achievements" and the like), there's no doubting that Game Freak took pains to make this a world worth revisiting.
All the old favorites are present (all... what, 649 of them - not all catchable in-game of course) and some Pokemon come in new forms as well. The new starting area is especially appreciated, as starting off exactly the same way B/W did would have started things off on an old, expired note. Also updated is the necessity of HMs - once a painful bane of a gamer's existence, they've been almost entirely eliminated from the main story, instead serving as paths to extra areas. They've really packed in the extras as well, though I'd prefer not to say much about them to keep the review relatively spoiler-free.
The game starts rather slowly as usual, and the graphics have received little update, always a weak point of the series. While Game Freak has recently started stepping into 3D territory, battle sprites and animations are as 2D as ever.Read more ›
And I'm very fond with the new characters and especially your new rival. He has great character development and feels more like a bro than anything else. I'd write more but that's where GameFAQs comes into place. Buy this game, it's very much worth it.
If you didn't play the original Black or White, then you're going to be a bit lost about the story, since it makes direct references to what happened in the previous game. If you have, and you have access to two DSs, you can "memory link" your two files together, and the game will make direct references to your previous Trainer Name. I love it. But, story doesn't REALLY matter in a Pokemon game, it's always just icing on the cake. You're here for Pokemon Battles! And they got plenty for you.
They did a lot to improve grinding for EXP in the previous game, such as gaining bonus EXP if your Pokemon are weaker than an opponent's pokemon, and a wild pokemon named Audino, who gives 3 times the EXP for defeating them in battle. For this game, they've added specific trainers, Pokemon Breeders, who will constantly want to battle you. Usually, you face a trainer only once, but the Pokemon Breeders will challenge you to battle every time you cross their path after having left the area. You also get a Lucky Egg, an item that boosts EXP, half way through the game, and you can also encounter "N's Pokemon" in the wild, if you performed the Memory Link, and they'll receive a EXP boost naturally.Read more ›
