    I expect most of the following:

    More Triple and Rotation battles (also more double battles where you team up with another trainer)
    Battle Frontier
    Gym Leader and Trainer Rematches
    A significant amount of new Single player content

    I also would like to see proper pokemon contests brought back, but I don't actually expect that.

    There would be most definitely more Triple/Rotation battles in the B/W sequels. For example, look at Ruby/Saphire. They had few Double Battles, but in Emerald, it had much more Double Battles. I expect it to be much more random triple/rotation battles.

    I don't really see much in gameplay terms changing. I believe these games will be much more focused on story than previous games in the series.

    three things:
    -All pokémon in the game have their dream world abilities by default
    -You start as Cilan, Cress, or Chili and your starter is either pansage, panpour, or pansear. Your rivals could be your brothers and maybe you could get snivy, tepig, and oshawott where you got the monkeys in BW
    -the shadow triad should be the main antagonists

    The ending didn't have a cliffhanger at all. Everything was wrapped up.

    While I agree there's no way we're going to Kanto in these games I have to point out that the time has nothing to do with it. Not to mention we don't really know when in the Pokemon 'timeline' that B/W takes place.

    Yes, if these games were prequels it would make much more sense, it should take place in "ancient" unova, the relic castle and abysmal ruins wouldn't be ruins anymore and the sleeping Darmanitan would no longer be asleep. We could also see how kyurem split into two at the end, or something. I don't know, this is just so exciting, why Pokemon? Why? now I'll have to save some money to buy both! Also remember on the map how it said that route 18 and desert resort were once contiguous?

    I'm wondering. Is this gonna have those Pokedex 3D graphics? They'll look awesome if they do.

    It should have more post-game content, like a proper Battle Frontier. And something awesomely captivating to knock our socks off. I'm not going to name ideas, because if I can think it up, it probably isn't that awesome.
    I like Metagross, and I used to claim it!
    Spheal with it.

    For this game, I have the following wishlist:

    -Following Pokemon (please return!)
    -More Triple/Rotation battles
    -Revised movesets (Serperior, Scrafty, Unfezant) and/or tons of Move Tutors
    ---Move Tutors who teach for money (wishful thinking since I know this isn't going to happen)
    -Battle Frontier, or something similar (a Battle Archipelago would be killer)
    -Auto-Run feature
    -Certain Pokemon available sooner/in different areas (I'm looking at you, Rufflet)
    -New Pokemon animations

    I doubt this. Because the games are primarily made for the DS. Which doesn't have the capabilities to produce graphics like Pokedex 3D.

    No, it's not. They're for the DS, not the 3DS for one. And two the main series games are sticking with sprites.

    I would love to have Pokemon follow us again; I would be so happy to have a little Oshawott sprite follow my trainer sprite. Aside from that, I'm not really looking forward to any other improvements. I know that a lot of people want a Battle Frontier, but I personally don't care; I almost never challenge the Battle Frontier in the older games, and I doubt that would change in these new games. I think the current animations are fine the way they are, but I wouldn't be surprised if Game Freak updated them just for the sake of making the games more appealing.

    I second this. Except make it optional. Sometimes, I didn't want my Pokemon to follow me in HGSS.

    I purposefully waited for the second versions of the fifth generation games to come out. I'm not sick or bored of the pokemon franchise, but I wasn't very excited for the 5th generation pokemon.

    My theory is that every two generations we see a shift in pokemon designs. I think that 1st and 2nd were similar, 3rd and 4th had a different style and now we see another change for the 5th generation.

    This isn't bad, changing the styles of pokemon is important to keep things fresh and maximize appeal to players. I do love a few new pokemon, but not nearly as many as I did for the 4th generation.

    If there is enough additional gameplay features I will likely get one of the new games. If there isn't, I might just wait a few years for the 6th generation to come out on the 3DS.

    I am hoping for pokemon being able to follow you around among other things.

    We'll find out in June.

    I especially miss the hype and speculation that comes with the announcement of a new generation and new pokemon. Granted trolls were out in full force for Black and White.

    BW were actually in development before HeartGold and SoulSilver, so I hope the HGSS additions come to BW2. Primary:

    - The option to always be running
    - Pokemon following you around
    - Scrapping the crappy C Gear for a touch screen menu
    - More touch screen controls (bag, party, PC, etc)
    - Commemorative photos

    How would it sound if you went the other way around the circle of unova. This would allow you to see Kyurem Black or Kyurem White befor the end of the game. Finally, this would make the game more interesting and change the types of gyms probally.

    It is one of the main features of the game, although I admit that I only use it occasionally since majority of its features are online. And I'm not always online. I think that a more welcome change is to have more offline features available for it, like the Poketch apps.

    Even if you go the other way around, they can simply block the entrance to the Giant Chasm until the game allows you.
    And since you'll be traveling counterclockwise, the order of the gyms will be basically in reverse. No type changes necessary.

    I don't see how that's gonna work .__.

    Ok, so that's what I imagine to happen:
    1.- The return of a Battle Frontier instead of Battle Subway when we can explore the Rotation/Triple Battles in some facilities.
    2.- Move tutors D: I want them back D:< like the elemental punches just to say something
    3.- The return of useful thing like the VS Seeker, and some old TMs like Drain Punch, Roost, and Giga Drain
    4.- The should explain what happen with N, and Ghetsis would escaped from jail to make a revenge
    5.- Hoenn could be like Sevii on the 3rd Gen LG/FR and been an post-e4 region.
    6.- An updated on gyms and the E4 to make them stronger and a new champ.

    It is very unlikely that they change the TM list.
    Move tutors that teach old TM moves is the most probable solution.

    You do realize that Hoenn is a whole region, right? And Sevii is just a group of islands. If the events still take place in Unova, they can simply put more areas. The southwest area of Unova is available. Besides, East Unova was inaccessible pre-E4 because it was meant to give us something to explore post-game.

I'd rather them move back toward that then more touch screen nonsense. It's a game controlled primarily with buttons, having to switch between two control methods is annoying.

    I would approve if it meant visiting the chasm and catching a Metagross(unlikely)
    In all honesty I don't know how they will handle it. I like the subway idea that I've heard but What I think would be coolest is if they threw around the Pokemon diversity. (Maybe even the Pokemon in an area would change as you progressed through the game(aka start rout 1 level and after E-4 go up to the levels of northern Unova(such as giant chasm)In addition the types of Pokemon encounter able would change w/ day/night and seasons(probably too much but I can hope)

    They also need-battle frontier with move tutors(that would teach every former tutor able move and TM from generations 1-4), DW compatibility for Pokemon from generations 1-5, rematchable trainers who scale w/ level and eventually would all get a team of six high level fully evolved powerhouses(Gym leaders included)...
    Dragons are my friend, Ice is my foe...
    (Kyurem is an exception) dragonics rule

    -Let us hope for gen 6 to turn out well!

    There's no point in having a touch screen if we aren't going to be able to use it. HGSS made it so that you can select things without pressing X and scrolling down, which was incredibly convenient.

    DPPt had the second worst, behind BW. Those little apps were worthless. I kept it on the clock at all times, and that was already made obsolete by HGSS and BW.

    What is this, 2004? Nowadays the DS' control methods are well-established and universally accepted by everyone. Touch screens are everywhere due to their ease. I know Pokemon fans are rigid, but complaining about touch screen controls that can only help to enhance the gameplay is ridiculous.

    Exactly. There is no point in having a touch screen for Pokemon.

    HGSS made it so that you can select things without pressing X and scrolling down, which was incredibly convenient.
    HG/SS was incredibly slow to navigate through, D/P/P and B/W are much quicker and the information is displayed better as far as I'm concerned.

    DPPt had the second worst, behind BW. Those little apps were worthless. I kept it on the clock at all times, and that was already made obsolete by HGSS and BW.
    I'm not talking about the Poketch. I'm talking about the inventory.

    You missed my point. The game is controlled primarily with buttons. You move with buttons, talk to people with buttons, to have to switch between to the touchscreen all of a sudden is annoying.

    Capacitive touchscreens are everywhere because they're easy to use. Resistive touch screens are only on the DS family and are terrible.

    This gives me hope that the HGSS features that everyone seemed to like--like following, auto-run, and commemorative photos--will be included in BW2. I mean, if they're favorable features, why not add them?

    This would be ideal. I honestly really like the C-Gear and found it to be a really cool device. Having more use in-game would be very wonderful. I'd imagine they'd be features that still have to do with "connection." Maybe a text-message feature that functions essentially like the Pokegear/PokeNav's calling feature, and... I dunno, a built-in Town Map, maybe?

    How is it unlikely, though? Since TMs cannot be held items anymore, it seems logical that they'd change the TM list in BW2, since there'd be no compatibility issues.

    This. I'd like to see the CGear as just the little button on the touch screen until I need to use it, and bring back the HGSS touch screen menu. Seriously, the way its implemented in BW is highly annoying.

    Unless, of course, the game NEEDS you to access Giant Chasm, considering that these games will feature, you know, the Pokemon found in Giant Chasm.

    Besides the issue with Gyms, what happens to Black City/White Forest? Will they be replaced with Gray Suburbs or the like? Will it solve the Gym problem? Who knows?

    Uh.

    You know that you can press X and control the menu via the D-pad and buttons, right?

    Basically this.

    I actually want a sort of virtual D-Pad on the touch screen in the overworld, just so I can control the game without buttons at all.

    In response to the C-gear discussion, I think they went overboard with it in B/W. No need to dedicate the entire bottom screen to wireless functions which nobody uses more than half the time. Make it a small button which can bring up the C-gear when it's needed and put some sort of useful menu or something on the bottom screen.
