Unless you actually give a shit about pokemon plot it's probably safe to say that this is essentially the same as what Grey would have been. That seems to be the theme for this gen: be sufficiently different that it throws people off, but not different enough that it actually matters in the end.

Personally, I say give no fuck. I decided I wouldn't let GF swindle me out of money by not buying anything until the inevitable upgrade came out, and now it's here. Just in time too, getting left out of the poke-loop was starting to bug me.

A lot more pokemon plot, I'm sure. The question is, does it even matter? This poke-peta stuff got old sometime around the turn of the millennium and making fun of poke-peta stuff has gotten old too. The fact that it's in the games themselves doesn't really change that.

Team Plasma aren't even Pokémon PETA. Their ideology is questionable at best, their intelligence is negligible and their methods are exactly the same bullying extortionist asshattery of all the other Teams.

Okay, that's proved fake. Some guy on DA made them. The rage was extreme on /vp/ with people still trying hard to believe even after the guy came in the thread and showed how he made it in Photoshop.

I do have this information though and I have no idea where it came from. Probably someone on /vp/'s imagination. I like the idea of a fire elephant Pokemon, they should do that in gen 6. Might be cool.

I get the impression that they might be Gym Leaders of Lacunosa and Undella.
If the new starter town is situated in the Southwest, it'd be really unintuitive to include Castellia, Nacrene and Striaton in the gym progression.
You just need a new starter gym before you get to the main entralink loop and bam, new gym rotation.

God no, water has always be one of the best types (only weak to Grass type-which suck offensively and the majority of water Pokemon can kill with Ice Beam--and Electric), and Drizzle makes Swift Swim so powerful that most places ban having both on the same team now.

I always thought they should get around to maybe try introducing a new type already.

Hang on, if there's two new gyms, won't two of the existing ones had to have stepped down?
>> No. 24986
I'm sure a lot of the old gyms and elite 4 will be scrambled around, but just because those characters are absent from gyms in BW2 doesn't mean they've been stripped of their title.

I personally think it would be cool if they showed up like RED in Gold and Silver, albeit because this a direct sequel they had whatever your team was the second time you beat the elite 4. It's not currently possible, but it would be pretty cool.

Here's hoping Dark gets a gym, Steel gets an Elite 4 position, and Bug moves up to at least 5th gym because holy shit Black and White just HEAPED on the amazing bug types.

One thing I loath about black and white is the utter lack of verity of pokemon you have access too before the 5th gym. And the fact that gyms seem to be built right on top of what they're weak against. "Boy oh boy, I sure do love Electric Pokemon!

Well you are starting in a different part of Unova.
I'd imagine there'd be a gym somewhere before you get into the main Entralink loop of Unova, and assuming they do something like lock off the drawbridge until you come at it from the other side, then you'd create a new loop.
And since Shizui is beach themed and Undella is the only beach-themed town in Unova, that's probably where he'll be.
So two new gyms.
And if they do what I think they'll do and keep the Skyarrow Bridge closed until after the Elite Four, then that makes it all work out nicely.

Also the gyms are looking to be super easy mode again from what's been revealed (3 pokemon cap) and the elite 4 are still rocking 4 a pop to boot, although they're at around the late 50's

Gym order is as follows:
Normal (old, BW's rival)
Poison (new)
Bug (old) (how the fuck is bug not gym 8?!)
Electric (old, new look)
Ground (old)
Flying (old)
Dragon (old) (wait, Dragon as 7 and not 8? Tweeeeest!)
Water (new) (yay ANOTHER water gym)

The world battle mode sounds awesome with just about all the old gym leaders and E4 members showing up with teams of three. Think this might actually be the games Battle Whatever due to the level restrictions on teams and the alternate rules you can put on.

Over all I'm almost hyped. Almost. It all comes down to the pokemon I have access to, especially in the early parts of the game. Black and White didn't have jack shit until the 3rd badge.

That's what it's always been. You can count all the important game developments on one hand: special split, attack split, and, uh, a couple others. The least they could do is change up the plot, which is sadly regulated to side games, most of which don't play like the main ones.
>> No. 25302
The particularly important gameplay changes between generations:
Gen 2: Special Attack/Defense, Steel and Dark types. Hold items. Breeding.
Gen 3: Restrictions placed on the EV system, the IV system made more important. Wireless communication. Double battles.
Gen 4: Physical/Special split.
Gen 5: Triple, Rotation, and Launcher battles.

There's really only so many things they can still do with the actual mechanics. All that's left to focus on is story.
>> No. 25303
Or at least a change in setting or something.
Like, feudal japan era pokemon, where since Pokeballs don't exist or something, you can only take about 2 on-foot with you, with the same gym leaders mechanic - only since most of the land is uncharted you have to find those places and fend off guards that don't want you in their secret village or whatever.

Mix it up, yknow?
>> No. 25304
...That game came out already.
>> No. 25305
>Steel and Dark types
You know, I kind of wish they would introduce a new type again or something.
Maybe that's an awful idea, but it would make things interesting.
>> No. 25307
Don't forget Natures.
>> No. 25308
I also forgot Abilities.

You haven't been paying much attention, have you?
>> No. 25313

Haha, what? I honestly though that was a joke post. Did you really not know?
>> No. 25314
Well, yeah but... as a main game, not a spinoff.
>> No. 25315
...Why would you want to be limited to just two Pokemon in a main game?
>> No. 25318
Its an example of sorts. Yknow, get creative with the franchise.
Hell, I wouldn't mind going the Pokemon route and make a direct sequel with a character being a teenager and having to battle again for OTHER motives or something, I DUNNO JUST HAVE THEM BE CREATIVE ITS ALL THE SAME WITH DIFFERENT POKEMON WHO DO THE SAME THINGS UGH WHAT DO YOU CARE YOURE NOT MY REAL DAD AAAAAAAAUGH

Personally, I'd like to see a Pokémon game that wasn't focused solely on "beat the Elite 4" as if that's the be all and end all of everyone in the entire Pokémon universe.

I'd like to see a Pokémon game with....BRANCHING GAMEPLAY (shudder) that actually rewards you for playing any number of ways. But that would probably take a whole hell of a lot more game.
>> No. 25328
Colosseum and Gale of Darkness had all of one Gym between them and it didn't even dispense a badge. You were just chasing after Team Badguy and Evil Syndicate. Which should probably be the main focus of every Pokemon game anyway. If there are evil dicks running about, they probably take priority over personal accomplishments.

I want a GTA pokemon.

Come on Nintendo, all the kids who grew up with the original game are old enough now, you'd rake in money hand over fist with a GTA-style pokemon game where you work your way up the ranks of Team Rocket, get in gang wars with Plasma, Magma, etc for turf, fight the doofy-haired good guys who are going to challenge the Elite 4, etc.

barring that I would like Rock types to be viable pokemon to use.
>> No. 25358
You say GTA addition, and all I imagine with pokemon involved is Pokemon: Michael Vick Edition.

You know, it's been out in Japan for a while...
does it have better wifi?
>> No. 25625
I'm praying that BW2 have WPA so that I can stop using a fucking WEP wifi on my home internet connection.
>> No. 25658
>Still hoping Nintendo is capable of making decent decisions
>> No. 25659
Isn't the WEP/WPA thing just part of how the DS's wireless works? I would think they would need to do a firmware update for the DS, rather than just improve the technology in the game, because all DS games run on the same API for wireless from what I can tell.
>> No. 25661
But I think that since Black had DSi enhancements it could also access the DSi's higher wifi powers.
>> No. 25662
My DSi can use WPA. When I tried to run Black or SoulSilver or Platinum into my wifi connection, it INSISTED on using WEP instead, saying the GAMES were incompatible with WPA.

Why the fuck does that even work? The software isn't compatible with it?
>> No. 25664
Yeah, DS games aren't programmed to be able to recognize the higher abilities of a DSi.
Though I had assumed B/W being DSi enhanced meant that they were.
>> No. 25686
I'm not.

It was either that or Code of Princess, and I chose the one I haven't been playing since 1995.
>> No. 25689

Is this...

trolling? I'm honestly not sure. Hmm.
>> No. 25690

I think it's a valid statement if you approach it from a "I'd rather try something different for a change."

I mean it's not very often something like a spiritual successor to Guardian Heroes comes out.

It's like I almost want to pick it up, but I'm just bored to tears with the current formula and Black/ White was such a massive MASSIVE let down.
>> No. 25697
Not gonna lie, the things that annoyed me to hell in B/W are still there in B/W2. The absurdly long wait time/zoom thing whenever you enter a building, no auto run button, the bag is a disorganized mess, the bottom screen is essentially useless, etc., but the pacing is already much better. Pokes from every region available right for the get go really help.

It's a nice upgrade, but I'll probably sell it back once I'm done
>> No. 25698
Those...are pretty much the only things I really wanted them to fix.

Way to go not fixing any of them, GameFreak.
