    Because the regular anime is a weekly series and this level of animation would be quite expensive to reproduce to that extent.


    (It's the same team, by the way)

    I said this because many people are theorizing a new team after seeing that image of the people on the boat. It's guaranteed plasma in some form but some people are just idiots and theorizing random crap about new teams.

    N was just an unwilling pawn, his whole life being a lie so Ghetsis could conquer Unova. Poor guy. ._. Wonder what role he'll have in B/W2.

    To be coddled and swooned over by the fangirls.


    I-uh...

    Probably something about his Dragon's Power getting used to turn Kyurem into it's Box-Art forme.

    Hahaha, that just made my day. Never knew that N had so many fan girls after him. xD Team Plasma probably are going to take his Dragon, but it's to be seen exactly why they take it. It's still speculation for now.

    Hmm...Ash went on an adventure to become the greatest pokemon master, Brock went on an adventure to become the greatest pokemon breeder...






    Maybe N will set out on an adventure to get a decent name?

    Just because his parents were hippies doesn't mean that Natural Harmonia Gropius is a terrible name.

    And Brock's becoming a Pokémon Doctor now. /offtopic

    Would be cool if N decides to become the Unova league champion. We all know he can beat that Unova champion guy without even trying hard. In BW he beat him with 6 pokemons of lvl 50-52, and Alders pokemans are over lvl 70 i think.

    it's implied that Alder's team wasn't at that level when he first beat him up.

    In BW1, N destrolished the E4 AND Alder with just his Dragon, I believe. Since the Dragon is from legend, they were basically saying it was invincible, I guess.

    That's because you catch the legendary and, as Cyrus once said, Pokéballs greatly diminish a pokémon's (or at least a legendary's) power. N didn't catch its dragon, just befriended it, so...

    I wonder if Anthea and Concordia will play a larger role. Were they Ghetsis' pawns, or were they in league with him and his plan for N?

    I hope so. They seemed like they would be interesting characters, what with being in the opening movie for Black/White (I mean the movie you get when OU don't press start at the title screen), but all they did was...heal your Pokemon? That might have just been Anthea. Concordia...didn't really do much.

    It would be nice to see them play a role in the next game. Maybe as aides along the way, sort of like spies or double agents. Either that, or have them working with N to bring down what's left of Team Plasma as revenge (assuming they are N's babysitters).

    Also, Natural Harmonia Gropius is a crap name. He desperately needs a name that doesn't make him sound like some experimental android. Being brainwashed by Ghetsis while having the "grope" sound in your name doesn't help either.

    Therefore, N's Dragon OHKOs yours in the battle's first turn, seeing how you put yours in a Pokéball.

    Oh wait, no he doesn't. I guess what Cyrus says applies only to the DPP legends, who should be able to shape the world itself, but in battles can be somehow defeated by stupid shit. The BW Dragons don't really have such powers (no time and space bullshit this time); they're just really strong dragons.

    Or, more likely and tied to reality, seeing as N throws out a Pokéball containing his magic dragon right before he flys off into the sunset, the Champion's Pokémon were all weaker than his and he just beat them in battle. This keeps the thing Cyrus said true as well as actually reflecting what happens in the games.

    Speaking of Dragons, I was thinking that you might not actually be able to capture Reshiram/Zekrom in BW2. The Hero of Unova has the opposite colored Legendary, while N has the matching Legendary and the one Kyurem absorbs. I mean, it's not like they've changed storylines before just to have more Pokémon available *coughEmbededTowercough* but it would let there be a real Version Exclusive Legendary this time, which would sorta line up with the Duality thing they're going for.

    If the trailer is any inclination, this game will be FREAKING AWESOME! Pokemon World Championship, new alternate forms, and the return of Team Plasma....what's next?
    Also, am I the only person who noticed that in the newest pictures from Serebii it shows the player using Typhlosion in Pokewood and Ho-Oh and Dialga versus Keldeo? Could it possibly mean that these Pokemon are available after completing the National Dex? Or did the player just import them from Gen IV? (Also, I think I saw another pic with Regigigas too)

    The Typhlosion is probably just from being transferred over

    The Ho-oh & DIalga are nothing but link battles to demonstrate Keldeo's power.
