As people have started to play through the games now, let's use this thread to discuss your impressions of Black 2 and White 2.
How does it compare to Black and White?
How does it compare to second games of previous generations?
What do you think about the new Unova Dex?
What do you think about the new move tutors, the Pokemon World Tournament, or the numerous newly available Hidden Abilities?
However, please try to post something more detailed than a single-sentence post.
Please keep the conversation civil. Let others state their opinions.

"Now that I've had my coffee..."
Despite the fact that I haven't been able to play it much, I really like it.
I think it's pretty cool to have direct sequels this time, instead of a mix-up of the first two games. It's nice to see what's become of the characters from the first games, and to see how the Unova region has changed.
I like the new towns, especially the new starter town, Aspertia. After so many years of starting off in these little villages with seven inhabitants, it's refreshing to see an actual city as your home.
Also, I'm very glad some of the older Pokémon were added in this time. The Gen V Pokémon were so ugly, and they used to be the only ones I could look at.
My one complaint involves the one thing I have to look at through the entire game: the player's avatar. The avatars this time around both look horrible.
I will not worship Smogon.
Well, I havn't played through much of the game yet, but it definately feels like the original game so far. To me this feels more like "added content" then an entirely new game.....sort of like those WWE games where they release DLC every month or so...it's the same core game and gameplay just with added tit bits. Now, I know that every pokemon game has a similar core game, but I guess it's just the fact that this is the first time I'm playing through a proper pokemon sequel, based in the same world as it's predecessor, that I feel this way.
This isn't a bad thing though, and I'm definately enjoying the availability of more pokemon from the get go, rather than having to stare at the weird and downright crappy looking pokemon from Gen V. I never downloaded the Japanese games nor the patches for them, so the USA release was my first experience with the game, and let me tell you, I got the shock of my life when I caught a RIOLU so early on in the game LOL. The Kanto and JoHto Pokemon are the best in my opinion and being able to access some of them so early on in the game is one way to hook me lol.
Pokestudios has also been a highlight for me, mainly because I get really tired of the endless grinding at some point and just want to do something fun in the game that is immediate and can be accomplished in a short time, if that makes sense?
Anyways, I'm going to conclude this long winded post and say that I look forward to whatever surprises are heading my way in this game. Also, I feel like this game, even though it is fantastic, is sort of a stall tactic by the company, until the next generation of pokemon (if there is one) comes out. I mean look at the evidence.....normally there are a boat load of new pokemon with each game (not counting remakes), and even though this is a sequel set in the same place, if it were NOT just a game made to capitalize on our wallets or stall, then we would have been introduced to a whole bunch of new pokemon that could have come from the new/Far regions of Unova, but all we got was an alternate form for kyurem and genesect....sooo safe to say, this is either the end or theres a new generation right around the corner...time will tell...
I know this is a slight bump, but I thought I'd go ahead and share some of my opinions of the game thus far. At this point, I'm a bit too lazy to do much else besides review the six Pokemon that are part of my team and how good I think they are in-game (in general, that is, not the specific versions of these Pokemon I have):
I love how quickly and smoothly the game works, and the PWT is just too cool. : D
Also, the forum description says "upcoming". These have been released for a while. Just pointing that out incase someone missed it.
Show me what it's like
To be the last one standing
And teach me wrong from right
And I'll show you what I can be
Say it for me
Say it to me
And I'll leave this life behind me
Say it if it's worth saving me
