The Countdown to Pokémon Sun & Moon is on. From now until November 18th, I’m taking a nostalgic walk through the Pokémon main series releases until the beautiful day I get my hands on the next Pokémon adventure!
To pick up where my generation 5 disappointment left off, Black 2 and White 2 did not improve on anything for me to engage me with this generation. I wasn’t into Unova. I did pre-order both of these games with the full intention of finally getting into them this time. I didn’t. I didn’t get through these games until after X and Y. Actually, until ORAS.
This is the first and only time a generation has remade both their games instead of added a third, souped up version. If this had been any other generation, I can see myself liking that choice.
All that being said, I got through White 2 before I got through Black. I struggled in Black and I had a slightly easier time in White 2, despite the added challenge of N’s Castle. It was getting through White 2 that finally pushed me to finish Black. Ultimately, I returned to the generation 5 games for the legendaries they offer.
So, the tag!
Which Version: White 2. It seemed like everyone preferred White over Black, so when the new versions came out, I went with White 2. It worked out, because I was able to capture both Zekrom and Reshiram that way to transfer forward.
Played On: Same pink DS Lite.
Starter Pokémon: Tepig. I didn’t even realize I had written Pokabu before.
Favorite Town: Opelucid City was cooler in White/White 2.
Favorite Gym Leader: I like how much differs from Black to White, so it was nice to meet Iris even though I might prefer Drayden.
Favorite Pokémon: I started to come around to Gothita & evolutions.
Favorite Legendary: Kyurem!
Proudest Moment: Finding myself engaged in the story, finally, in N’s Castle.
Most Embarrassing Moment: It took me another generation to play this game?
Master Ball Used On: Zekrom.
Now I want to hear from you! What did you think of Black 2/White 2?
