I truly hope N returns.
We know it wasn't the end of Ghetsis, but I do hope there's a brand new, brighter chapter for N.
Kyurem doesn't sound like the type that might communicate with you, but your speculation on it being brainwashed sounds like a good prediction, and that way it must be battled and/or captured.
Nuvema Town being destroyed (0.o)? The cities and towns will probably have the Sages and other executives that Team Plasma didn't reveal in the original B/W games, let's not predict Nuvema's destruction.
I hope that they'll let you change your appearance.And a deeper storyline,like you battle Bianca and Cheren more often maybe.Or they become Gym Leaders.
Guys I just think this is gonna be Black/White with minor differences, like a normal third version. Hopefully those minor differences are bigger this time, but I wouldn't get your hopes up that this is gonna be a completely new game
edit: Oh I also think there might be two Kyurems in this game. One you find at Dragonspiral tower where N catches, and one that comes out of your stone. You then battle N with his Kyurem. Kinda like Black and White with Reshiram and Zekrom. Shame really, I was really looking to see them integrate Zekrom, Reshiram, and Kyurem all in one story but I don't think that will happen.
I'm assuming that these two new games are direct sequels to the original versions. IMO, it can be said with certainty that the story will be set in Unova, yet the events will probably take place a few years later.
Obviously, GF will probably include new areas and we'll also be given the chance to catch pokémon from previous generations (apart from the ones that appeared in B/W).
As for the characters... While I must admit the possibility of featuring N as the main character seems somewhat weird to me, I wouldn't rule it out either. There might also be changes in terms of gym leaders of even Elite 4 members. After all, they are supposed to play a -relatively- relevant role in the story, so we'd better expect changes in that sense.
Ready to challenge me?
Assuming that this game is set years into the future (which I hope it is!) I want to know how the starters will work. I think it'd be kinda stupid if they just gave us a pick of one of the three at the very beginning like the original. Maybe they'll do it like yellow, where you start with a completely different Pokemon and acquire the starters throughout the course of the game. Or, they don't become available until postgame.

There probably won't be a character customization option in these games, that seem like a feature that will be introduced with the first 3ds main series game (if ever). Hopefully not, but not insignificantly unlikely, character customization will be playing as a mii.
Far fetched, yes, but it actually remains to be a big possibility.
Running for the thrill of it
I also think that it's more probable that this is set in Unova primarily. It makes a lot more sense to me to have them take place in Unova.
ffs too many people have B/W Kyurem avatars.
People keep shooting down people's thoughts and speculations, but we can't rule out anything seeming this is the first time we are getting direct sequels to the main series games. Nothing is impossible. Game Freak/Nintendo can do whatever they want, we don't know what they have planned. No one could have possibly guessed this happening!
Anyway, I just hope the two Goddesses get a bigger role in this game. The Shadow Triad need to be involved in a 3 vs. 3 battle between themselves, the player and the two rivals (if there is still two rivals!)
Honestly I agree with Electivire Addict. This will be a different variation of Black and a different variation of White. Of course there will be move tutors and after the game there might be a new region where you chase N but, that won't happen till you beat the first part.
I'm sorry, I just don't want to have to deal with people ranting later on about how they were disappointed with the lack of changes, so I'm trying to get everyone's hopes down.
But yeah, I do agree that there should be triple tag battles. You, Bianca, and Cheren vs. the Shadow Triad or something, that would be cool.
Also I was wondering how they would integrate triple and rotation battles into one game, I guess having two solves that problem. It's a shame, I was looking forward to one game to see how they would integrate aspects from the previous two, which is why I loved Emerald so much
My main questions are what characters will play a major role. I'm really hoping that your a new character, and that Hilbert or Hilda play a major role as a NPC. I'm also hoping that we see more of the Shadow Triad and the two girls in N's castle(I can't remember their names.) They really didn't play much of a role in B/W 1. It also seems pretty obvious that Ghehetis and N will return, but I think this time N will be good.
No sig. Deal with it.
I suppose expecting a new character isn't farfetch'd as some of the other ideas that I've read, but I truly think it'll just be Hilbert and Hilda again
This in its self helps prove that these are 2 new storylines http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-vi...ite-version-2/ it says two all new adventures. Also if they just wanted to make a rehash they would have made 1 game not 2. The 2 in itself also indicates it s a sequel.
If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says, `If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven.`
Pokémon Platinum website also talks about a 'New Adventure' too, but I do have to agree that the '2' in the names of the title does connote a direct sequel and whole new experience.
And at the end of Black & White N left willingly, completely enlightened to Ghetsis' true motives. Because of this I don't see N needing to be chased, but more of a hero, or a fellow protagonist who guides you through the story (being he's older now, time has passed since he flew off). And the character you play as has always been male or female, to accomodate both genders. That isn't going to change. It's possible that we could play as N in a spin-off, but not a main series game, unless the main series game was marketed that way; though, as little as we know about N now, I don't think we know so little that he needs a game completely dedicated to his character for us to figure it all out.
And I'm guessing that N is going to reappear. Zekrom and Reshiram have now switched around as mascots (Zekrom represented White, now it represents Black 2, i.e. the sequel of Black). In Pokemon Black, Zekrom was owned by N. Assuming that Reshiram and Zekrom are singular entities, there's a strong chance that N will reappear, in order to justify Zekrom's appearance in Black 2. The same goes for Reshiram.

I'd like to think you have to help N recapture one of the dragons when Ghetsis uses Kyurem to try and make the first original dragon. New main protagonist and a few new characters as well would be nice.
Also, about Hilda/Hebert. Like Red, challenge at the end of the game. Where? Well, to the extent of my knowledge, Challenger's Cave didn't have much use?
And one other thing. They say the Desert Resort was tied in with the big fancy route containing P2 lab. Desert Resort containing the stones? And the coding for the God/Grey Stone? Come on, that's gotta be there for a reason.
I really do think they will be direct sequels to Black and White, why else put the "2" in the name? Of course, though, there's always the possibility it will be a revamped Black and White with different story elements.
Here's a cool idea I thought of for the story: Suppose it is a sequel, set a few years after Black and White (If this is the case, they'd likely have to put it new protagonist characters, because the protagonists of Black and White are the champion and have __ level Pokemon, etc., so unless they made the protagonist somehow lose his original Pokemon and he'll have to start again, there'd need to be new characters). You're a regular trainer, just starting your journey, and all of a sudden Team Plasma starts to crop up again. It will be the usual plot, where you get badges while trying to defeat the evil Team, but when you reach the climax, Ghetsis will have captured Kyurem and then Hilbert/Hilda and N have Zekrom/Reshiram, and they will have a battle. Kyurem will get defeated, but then Ghetsis will use the God Stone and it will sap away Zekrom and Reshiram into Kyurem, and it will restore the original dragon, which you will have to battle/capture. Unlikely, but pretty cool.
