Journal Entry: Sun Apr 15, 2012, 8:31 AM


www.pokemon.co.jp/ex/b2w2/ Official site and high quality trailer
filb.de/1772 April 16th Pokemon Smash videos featuring ingame footage

I don't know about you, but I'm getting pretty excited. It's almost like we're getting Generation 5.5 (well more realistically speaking, Generation 5.2).

New Rival is swagtastic, even his battle music is cool (though you can't hear it too well). Also, you can NAME him! :omg: You start in an actual city rather than a tiny town with 4 houses. And all trainers are actually animated!
Some things you might not notice at first:

:bulletred: Not only are there revamped battle backgrounds, but the circular platforms are actually animated.
:bulletblue: Looks like Pokemon have new animations. Emboar stomps its foot, Oshawott tosses its scalchop. They never did this in B/W
:bulletred: The battle music has been remixed. It does sound a bit better!
:bulletblue: One of the screenshots shows a group of people all dressed the same. Is this the new "evil team"?

And all that's just the tip of the iceberg (lol get it? I made an ice reference because of all the ice and Kyurem and….yeah…)

Any ways, discuss your hopes and speculations for these two games.

i love how people are freaking about being able to name your rival. That dates back to red and blue lol glad they brought it back though. Now they need a console rpg.... I do like the idea of starting in a real city lol.

sounds cool. The main characters look really different from B/W and yet still pretty similar. Most times the third (or in this case second pair) game is just an alternate version of the first pair. The drastically different looks, plus the new characters and 2's make me think these are sequels to B/W.

Not sure how I feel about B Kyurem and W Kyurem... It just seems like instead of making another version mascot to accompany Kyurem on either B2 or W2 they just fused it (the original 3rd mascot) with Zekrom and Reshiram to make two new pokemon.

The only thing I'm hoping a bit right now is that with the new GYM Leaders around, I think we will be getting the only type that was not previously represented as a GYM for the next 4 (Or the next 5 without a half?) Generations: Dark.

Whoashizz. When does it come out in America? My computer is being slow, so I can't click any of the links (gr.).

I want to pick Oshawott, but I've been picking fire types since I started playing ;3;

I didn't think I would be so excited for these games but I am! :la: I'm getting White Kyurem (I had gotten PKMN Black back then cuz I like Reshiram a lot). Also, I think this time, Eevee is wild (?), if so that is awesome. I can finally get an Eevee with a Luxury Ball. XD

Yep, it's confirmed there will be other region Pokemon in the wild. Eevee, Growlithe, Riolu, and Mareep are some of them and there will be version exclusives. I hope Eevee is in White. X3

We have almost always gotten both. c: When my brother got old enough to play video games we started getting both (his first Pokemon game was Ruby though he wanted Silver but for some reason never got it). Although the chain broke when his interest was manipulated by idiots (he didn't get White) but now he's interested in B2/W2 so there is a high possibility we will get both again.

Well, they did make FireRed and LeafGreen but they were for GBA so maybe they could redo them for DS. Although I would love a remake of Sapphire/Ruby.

The most important thing I need to know is if you will be making a hard hack rom once White/Black 2 comes out?

Im going to do my first run on vanilla of course but a hard rom for a nuzlocke would be fun :)

Wow, I'm really excited! I can't wait until these games are released! :D So far they look really awesome. It seems like a lot of the characters will be replaced, mainly gym leaders, which does make me a bit sad...I really liked the gym leaders in Black and White. But the new ones look pretty cool too~ Especially the Poison (?) type one. It'll definitely be interesting roaming through a whole different part of Unova, though I wonder....will the frozen part ever be freed from its veil of ice? What happened to the characters that were in that part? Were they frozen too? I guess I won't know until I play the game for myself! ^-^ The new protagonists and rival look pretty cool. I'd have to say my favorite so far is the female protagonist, and not just because I'm a girl. XP I just like her hair style. I'm really pleased that Nintendo decided to let us name our rival once again, and I may be overreacting a bit when I say this, but I'm really happy that the player starts off in a city. Not a tiny little town. Overall I'm pretty happy with the new changes that Nintendo put in the Black and White sequels. The only things I hope they bring back are the original characters: The gym leaders (you know, maybe after you beat the game, you can venture to the other side of Unova and battle them..), the original protagonists and rivals (maybe the new protagonists and rival can meet the old ones?), and last but not least, N Harmonia. He was by far my favorite character from Pokemon, so I really hope he makes a reappearance.

...That was a long wall of text. Sorry. ^^; I'm just really excited for these games! The videos got me even more excited than the pictures did. You can imagine how I'm feeling right now, being as my favorite Pokemon games are Black and White~

I want. o.o
The pokemon games are all so similar yet even the tinyest
new quirk gets me all fangirly.
Im so glad they didnt make it an exclusive for the 3DS.
I dont have the $$ for that shiz. :/

Looking forward to this game.
Btw who else wants them to make a 3 dimensional MMO?
Kinda similar to Pokemon Colosseum or Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness?
Only with scale models of Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh, etc etc.
I know i sure do. BADLY.

I also wish they would change it from turn base to
actually moving the pokemon around on a field once entering battle.
So you actually play AS the pokemon during battle, dodging
the opponents attacks, and attacking, defending etc,
and its all effected by stats.

So you can only move as fast as your stats allow you to be,
and you are only as strong as you are allowed to be.

This would also make training much more intuitive like in the show.
because your much more directly using your stats.
For instance if your mainly focusing on speed with one pokemon
during battles by using moves like double edge, quick attack,
etc then that stat would grow more upon leveling up.
Whereas if you dont use moves like that then that stat
would stay lower, (and depending on the species/nature/natural stats
some stats will obviously be easier to work on than others.)

And feel some training would be needed to learn a new move with
dependable accuracy.

But what all this allows is more focused, and intuitive training,
you can concentrate on specific area's in your pokemon's stats,
and also adds more of a personal element with your pokemon
by being able to make a more customizable team.

Also i think it would be interesting if when using HM type moves
out of battle when interacting with the environment.

For instance during rock climb upon sending out your pokemon
the player takes control as that pokemon and you can maneuver
up though cliffs, or during fly you are actually controlling where you are flying more directly,
and dring cut you are actually have to hit the tree the right way to cut it.

I think these would be fantastic elements to the game.
But sadly i fear they will never be... :/

XD I like what you said but pokemon games came out in the late 1900's (forget what years sadly)it took 2decades to make the show and even if they make graphics better their going to try to keep it original with the posts; boring? yes. But it helps them add other features.

mysteriouswhitewolf Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well if you mean the pokemon
games that came out for the Gameboy,
they sure didnt keep it original
in the Nintendo 64 and Gamecube.

I like what they did with those, and they've been making bold
moves as of late with that "Nobunaga's Ambition" game
that barely makes sense let alone plays like a turn base
grid FF Tactics. Definitely not the typical
Pokemon stuff either.

I just think that maybe since they want to
reach out and try some new things, thats
something more along the lines of what the
fans actually would want, and i think it
would be a smart business move that would benefit
the companies (Nintedo/Game Freak/Pokemon.)

True of the Nintendo consoles; but thats because they weren't hand held (like about 98% of them are). I never heard nor play that XD
Yeah... it might but if the owners of the pokemon world disagrees they can't.

Totally agree with this, For so lonng i've been hoping that we get a pokemon game where you can actually roam free through the land, would be so awesome!
I'm getting pretty psyched for the new games myself but I do hope there's more feedom in this one. I was so annoyed that everytime you met cheren or bianca you had to listen to them, do something lame for half an hur before you could actually continue with the game!

So, it looks like Ice Burn leaves one turn to charge like Solarbeam. I'm not sure but if Hail removes the charge turn, but it OHKOed W-Kyurem, so the move should have a big base power :iconobamanotbadplz:

Ice Burn takes one turn to charge, deals damage, has a 30% chance of burning the target.
Ice / Special Attack / 140 Base Power / 90% Accuracy / 5 PP

Freeze Shock takes one turn to charge, deals damage, has a 30% chance of paralyzing the target.
Ice / Physical Attack / 140 Base Power / 90% Accuracy / 5 PP

Black Kuyrem is a physical attacker and White Kyurem is a special attacker. That's why.

I think Arekis just meant that in original Black and White, your rivals were already named. So I wouldn't have been surprised if it was the same for Black 2 and White 2, but now that we know you can name your rival in the sequels, we're pretty happy about that!
