Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 – the Plot Thickens (Maybe)

Pokémon fans have a lot to think about lately. Black and White Versions are no doubt still getting good workouts (I know my White Version is), Pokémon Conquest is on the way next month, and Black 2/White 2 hit in Japan this June with an autumn release for the U.S. As if we don’t have enough on our plates to keep us satisfied, Junichi Masuda (GameFreak’s Game Director) recently advised readers of his blog to play through the corresponding sequel to whichever version, Black or White, that they played already. It’s feasible that this suggestion was made with plot in mind, and the only plot detail that varies from version to version is which dragon N rode off into the sunset at the game’s end. It makes sense that Masuda would recommend buying the same color sequel to keep that part of the plot straight.

I’d be willing to bet that N’s far from gone and that he’ll be back with a lot to say about Kyurem’s fusing with his beloved Reshiram or Zekrom. Will he try to restore Unova and quell Kyurem? On the other hand, maybe he’s completely fine with the fusion and is the one who initiated Unova’s deep freeze. He was rather stuck-up, after all, and he does consider himself to be more of a Pokémon than a person. Will he be a punisher, or a savior? We’ll soon see.

Speaking of Unova’s icy situation, lots more changes are in store. This pair of games marks the first time a region has been so drastically modified between two games, sporting new towns, gym leaders, and who knows what else. I’d even be surprised if the starters remain the same. Being the first main series direct sequel in Pokémon history, it’d be a great time to break the Fire, Water, Grass tradition, and offer some completely new Pokémon. An import feature from the get-go would be an amazing inclusion, allowing players to essentially pick up where they left off with their old teams. Opponents’ Pokémon levels could scale accordingly and make for a truly challenging game throughout…but that’s admittedly one heck of a long shot.

Many looming questions and hopes surround Black 2 and White 2, N’s possible inclusion being the most important. His story is something the likes of which Pokémon games have never known, and Masuda’s suggestion seems to poke at his continuing legacy. Only time will tell. Where’s a Celebi when you need one?

    We know from last week’s Pokémon Smash that the starters do remain the same, FYI.

    Importing and scaling difficulty is a good idea, but it’d be really hard to implement- after all, many players likely got their team to lvl 100- it’d be really hard to make it legitimately difficult for them. Either way, I was pretty hesitant about Black and White 2 when it was first announced, but it’s really starting to look more and more interesting.

  6. I needed to create you this little bit of word to finally thank you as before for the breathtaking principles you’ve provided on this page. It is unbelievably generous with you to give freely just what a few individuals might have marketed for an e book in making some cash for their own end, especially considering the fact that you might well have tried it in the event you desired. These tactics also served as the good way to be sure that someone else have the same dream like my own to figure out very much more with respect to this condition. I believe there are millions of more pleasant periods up front for those who read your blog.

    Magnificent goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you are just extremely excellent. I really like what you’ve acquired here, certainly like what you are stating and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it smart. I can not wait to read much more from you. This is really a terrific web site.

  12. “Weakness”? What the @#$% are you talking about? So my twenty something grandmother should have done what, grab her grenade launcher when an army invaded her village and rounded up her family? What does the “situation” Jews are in in the world have to do with propagandistic images that have little to do with how the Holocaust actually happened? As other posters have noted, the idea that, sorry Jen, “some of us are fighters and some are not” is not just absurd in this context but offensive. (As is the picture of a “real” candle lighting ceremony in which A MAN is lighting the candles.) My grandfather was a fighter. He fought for the Polish Army against the Russians before the War. It got him into a Siberian prison camp. And what exactly is the “spirit” of the Jewish people? Where do I go to find out about this cosmic entity that has its collective eyes trained on Internet comment posts? Oh, that’s right, Israel, I forgot. Israel is the arbiter of all things Jewish, because Israel has an air force and secret service. Blessings to G-d, who is beyond all blessings and song, for inventing Krav Maga and compulsory military service.
