    Well, why did they give bronzong a second ability and everything else got nothing?? I think it's wrong that bronzor/bronzong were given special treatment (in the form of other abilities) and everything else was just ignored.

    Obviously Pidgeot would be an off-ground poke hence immune to the ground attacks in question.

    I agree. BW2 needs a bit more freedom, BW was WAY to linear.

    BW is not linear, it's Final Fantasy XIII meets D/P's regional Dex meets G/S's pokémon distribution. 2.5 years after the Japanese release, I have three save files (Nuzlocke, original cart, NFE-only run) and I've beaten the E4 in only one of them (nevermind EXPLORING West Unova), because the game manages to have the worst in-game possible.

    Man whaaaat
    BW has way better Pokemon distribution than GS
    Once you get past Striaton, I mean. But it's not like the in-game selections are bad??

    Choosing my teams as I played I kept agonizing over did I want this one or that one.

    Ok fine, I exaggerated, nothing can be as bad as GS's distribution. But I won't change a word because fuck Unova until BW2.

    I hate to be this guy, but this is bugging the shit out of me. The bold part is wrong. You don't NEED to beat Erika to get the Scope, rescue Mr. Fuji, then awaken the Fatkren. And you DO need to beat Wattson to use Rock Smash, necessary to head to the desert area thingy. You're thinking of Dewford, which is totally skippable.

    I will say I hope some of the later-game mons like Durant or Druddigon get moved to at least mid game.
    People might actually use Heatmor, then!

    Another thing is they need to beef-up the wildmon's levels a few. Catching a level 26 Litwik when the majority of your team is mid-30s blows.

    A few Audinos takes care of that problem.

    Here's some food for thought. Maybe they will introduce a move tutor in there. Because it's so annoying that I have to go to GEN 4 just to get a certain move like stealth rock, and then you have to get it to gen 5 and finnally you find out that you needed another move from gen 4....... it's one of those momments where I say this word "Fudge!!!!!!"

    If we had Surf, we could go all the way to Dewford, then Slateport, then Mauville, then Fortree.

    I won't bother much because now we'll have 300 pokémon before the E4. So, like, every route will be almost exploding with pokemans.

    Not necessarily. BW Unova technically held well over 300 available Pokemon.
    And this time we have additional routes

    They could go the HeartGold/SoulSilver route where like half the regional dex is unavailable until you beat the E4.

    And yeah BW1 had a lot of local mons besides just the Unova dex, and also not counting the White Forest mons either.

    You can import B2/W2 from play-asia.com, although it's kind of expensive ($60 not including shipping).

    Unova held that much after the E4. I'd say Unova will have about 500 pokémon this time.

    If I counted correctly and serebii is accurate, ignoring DW mons, Unova already contains 464 mons, counting both black and white.

    Notably, a large portion of this number (46 mons' worth of it) is legendary pokemon and starters.

    I didn't realize that Gen 1-4 starters were available in B&W outside of the Dreamworld. Also the only legendaries available in B&W are Unova legendaries (three musketeers, three genies, three dragons. Victini, Keldeo, Meloetta, and Genesect don't really count).

    Also how many of those are White Forest?

    Surprised no one's talking about the AR searcher and Pokedex 3d Pro. AR searcher at least is something, as pokemon caught there can be imported to bw2. No thoughts on that? Not that there's much to go on I guess

    I'll buy it anyway. The pokedex thing, anyway. Just the unova pokedex was so neat, having old faves on there too is just too cool to pass up

    Pokedex pro being so much is ridiculous, but 3 bucks for what is effectively AR Pokemon snap that has connectivity to BW2? That's fair.
