I don't think they really understood where it was directed; BW2 seem to be directed at hardcore pokemon fans & fine-tuning Gen V. However, this makes me nervous about the future. What is to come? BW2 were a complete surprise (ahem, no Pokemon Gray). I just wish I knew where the franchise is headed, and I hope that its in the right direction
Either way, Game Freak seems to have something up their sleeve they aren't telling us- I just hope we get a Gen VI that is a could kickoff to the next century of pokemon.
