    Yeah they kind of did go a tiny bit over the top this time... Especially with Hugh.

    I know, what is with the afro? And why is Nate's hair all puffy and weird?

    In terms of the clothes that the player characters wear, I don't particularly like shorts over... whatever Nate wears under them.
    Something that looks like a skirt over leggings or tights or whatever seems like a much better fit. (:

    I like it when pokemon goes with the silly looking designs. It's why I like Nate's design more than any previous male/female protagonist's design.

    Nate doesn't look bad when he's not wearing the visor in the Pokestar Studios sprites...
    Shiny Mega Gardevoir thinks his black dress is totally stylish. Shiny Mega Gallade wishes he looked that good. :P

    Funny everyone started talked about their favorite and least favorite villain teams, lol!
    Lemme say my opinion regarding them:

    Team Rocket: I'm gonna be blunt, they are the least developed of all. I mean, world domination for no reason? That's absolutely old. Sorry nostalgia fans, but this team thought too little. Despite the upgrade in HG/SS....nope....

    Team Aqua/ Magma: .......cool grunt design and stuff but their leaders were absolutely boring. Expanding land and sea? I never got the point of that.

    Team Galactic: Well that's better. Interesting commanders though their hairstyle and outfit are laughable. The godlike goal was hypocrite, selfish and old but, well, at least got a good development to get there. Cyrus was hell creepy and I felt like kicking him in the nuts more than once, but for what he desired to be, was not bad.

    Team Plasma: Best team for me so far. And the most diversified. First their PETA goal, that was brilliant. Second their naive king, a hot stuff easy to sympathize. Third, ninjas, excuse me that was awesome. Fourth seven old farts as wise dudes that nobody cares but hell, it made part of the pack.
    Ghetsis turned to be the jerkass which we at first thought Gamefreak decided to skip this time. Well the old fart tried to murder us in the sequel, that's new. And completely insane, another new. Yeah, the new Team Plasma's goal got the same mistake as TR but do what, it was under Ghetsis's orders. See what he did to the whole concept and turned everyone around him (save N and his foster sisters) into equal jerks specially Shadow Triad...

    I don't really care for the "silly-looking designs" when it comes to player characters, but that's just my opinion, I guess.

    I can't wait to play BW2 to see how insane Ghetsis is now. I wonder why he lost his sanity, he seemed pretty sane in BW1...

    Well then I guess I should just stick with playing as the girl.

    I see no problems with Nate's design... It is not the first MC with a "weird" design.
    Am I not right, Brendan? And we have Lyra too, with her Mario cosplay.

    I am not playing as him just because I don't want to.

    Well, he lost for a teenager in Black and White... and for a kid/teenager, AGAIN, in B2W2.
    This could pretty much destroy the sanity of a man like Ghetsis.

    Wanting to freeze over the entire region isn't the goal of a sane man

    After losing to the BW1 heroes and witnessing his plans crumble due to a mere child, it's safe to say that made him go all cuckoo in the cranium.

    You got that right! The Legend of Korra is returning on October 3rd! Mark your calendars!

    Especially because it gets called 'Qwilfish-like' twice ingame by NeoPlasma grunts.

    So, after beating the game, I found the plot of this game to be pretty meh, considering I REALLY loved BW1's plot.


    The character's themselves were good, but I didn't like the storyline much this time.

    Seeing the plan of a lifetime crumbling before his eyes because of a meddling teenager from Where-the-hell-is-Nuvema-Town, and then his own perfect puppet he raised from childhood for his plan turning on him...

    Let's say that doesn't do anything good for a guy like Ghetsis, and he isn't that sane anymore in B2W2.

    BW1's plot was only good because of N. Now just because he made got a brief role made the plot automatically bad?

    After beating the champ I went right to BLACK CITY because in the previous game I did all the side questing and hunting first to savor my trip to black city, only to find that when I got there the city was completely empty. Apparently I didn't get there fast enough. Anyway the city in Black 2 is full this time and I hit up the Black Tower to check it out but there is a trainer in the way of starting the challenge, saying something about Alder.
    Do I need to continue to play on before this is open?
    Also there is a large building where almost everyone is talking very greedily. Is that normal?!

    The plot in BW is indeed better, but is because it was something fresh at the time.
    B2W2's plot is more of a closure to BW's one, so it is natural for some not to like it that much.

    Fortunately for me, I am more driven by the characters in a game than the story, so I pretty much prefer B2W2 over BW.

    That may have a little to do with it, but not that much. It's just my opinion though, it's not everyone's. >_> And as Nya, said, it may have to do with it with it being fresh at the time. This one was more conventional.

    - I like how they paced the plot. There's all kinds of small things that happen here and there that bring questions and then it sort of just erupts out of nowhere.

    - I like how they put Colress in the story. You never really figure out who he is. He's just this mysterious guy that keeps popping up and in the end just ends up being a crazy dude. Reminds me of Cyrus in a way. I thought it added that "shady" feel I like in a story plot. I do agree they didn't give much explanation about that whole ordeal though.

    -I think they leave out things like the past story of Ghetsis because it leaves room for wondering. I do like how much suspicion is left with his story though.

    -I was kind of hoping they would do the same thing with Hilbert as they did Red. They always mention the "Hero" from BW like they did with Red in GS, and then you find him @ the top of a peak and have an epic battle. That would have been an awesome concept to bring back.

    I love how Colress thinks

    "If the world should be destroyed to get this data, then so be it!"

    He's so wrapped up in his research of bringing out the power of Pokemon that he would destroy the world to do it.

    Hum, yeah, but the problem with BW1 is the whole plot in Team Plasma was with N only. The others members barely did something, for that we easily forgot about the Seven Sages, the Shadow Triad and the random grunts with little besides patrats and purrloin evo lines. I admit, I like N, but I liked him most probably because he was the only character with proper development. Yes, it was well thought and different from a while, taking the initial big boss was a naive young adult man, but I felt sorry for the lack of diversified role on the cast. We got the huge twist by the end from Ghetsis and there and only there we realized the whole thing.
    BW2's plot may not be as surprising as BW, but seriously what to expect? Ghetsis's cover busted in the end of the game, so obviously since he took real charge this time he would make his paranoid nature directly this time and the new Team Plasma reflected that, makes the whole sense. Yes I expected N to get a bigger role, but it was important enough to make impact in the story, as well Ghetsis.

    The reason why I like BW2's plot more than the prequel is, as hinted before, for the better distribution of roles. We got the confrontation between the old and new members, each of them fighting for their own beliefs, that was cool. We got two Sages, one in each side doing their own thing in a proper way, they weren't making scenario like in the last game.
    The Shadow Triad, which were nothing but useless escorts in the prequel, took real action and revealed their real nature, being probably even more ill-natured than Ghetsis himself. That's ONLY after learning about that, I acknowledged their existence and became my favorite characters.
    And Ghetsis had a complete twist of nature, he turned insane and wrecked and made things which the previous leaders of their teams never thought to do.
    Colress was a good addiction for the team.

    Yep, we never learned much about Ghetsis's past thought there's many hints of that after post-game.

    However, I agree with you regarding Hilda/Hilbert. I didn't get neither why they had to go after N. Looks more like: or Gamefreak fancied the whole shipping fuss for making the protagonist fall in love with N (that's, like, on EVERYWHERE) or simply wanted them out of the picture for whatever reasons.

    GameFreak was constant in wanting N & the PC to be ~Best Friends Forever~ so it would make sense for paragons of virtue such as ourselves to not let N be alone with his Dragon forever

    Could probably see it as running away and blah blah blah
