    It would be nice if someone somewhere asked Kusaka how he learns of game knowledge. Merely by playing it, and/or learning certain things beforehand? Etc.

    I don't see the point of making new characters. There's really nothing they can do that Black and White can't do as long as Kusaka is creative. Considering BW's plot would probably be connected to BW2's it'll actually be sorta of pointless to go through the trouble of adding new characters, struggling with the names, and whatnot when Kusaka can use the chance to greater development Black, White, and all the other characters. After all, an adaptation doesn't have to adapt everything when the story is already basically borrowing ideas and running with them.

    I say just give Black and White new clothes and pretend the new characters are unimportant and just give them a minor role. Maybe the new rival can be the bad guy depending if N changes sides before the end of BW. I really hope it won't be something like the Yellow arc again.

The D/P saga started in the magazines a couple of months after the games were released in Japan. I believe Platinum was as well. I think Hg/Ss was the same.
    I don't think the chapters will be since Kusaka would want to play the games to figure out what's new and what could be interesting for a story. Not even the magazine companies would be stupid of enough to rush chapters like that... I hope.

    EDIT: Well, I stand corrected... Here's to hoping Kusaka isn't pushed to spit out BW2 so soon.

    Considering how a BW2 manga has already been announced, it's fairly obvious that these people get info early.

    I'm guessing Kusaka gets the info earlier but isn't allowed to fully reveal them himself for obvious reasons. If that's the case, then maybe the Shadow Triad really are...

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

    You know, I just had a thought.

    Since this manga has a HORRIBLE release schedule that seriously dampers its ability to adapt the games until chapters are published in a volume format, I just realized...

    BW2 is a sequel instead of a third version! That means no extra content since it takes place in the future.

    This means that there doesn't have to be moments that get changed or added into the volumes! This means the story can go on unaltered. Yes. this makes it so much easier since we don't have to wait several years for extra plot twists and junk.

    There is one thing that could excuse characters named Black-2 and White-2.

    Androids.
    After 12 years of being a Pokemon fan, I'm officially quitting the fandom. This is not a rage quit and it has nothing to do with the Pokemon franchise. It's also NOT a sudden decision - I've planned it for months but I decided to stay a true, active Pokemon fan until the very last day. The reason for my leave is the fact that I'm starting my studies at the Uni and I decided that it's a perfect moment to move on with my life. I'll never forget all these awesome years and Pokemon will always be a part of my childhood memories. Goodbye friends! Thank you.

    And if I'm ever back, I'm never back for good.

    Personally, the female protagonist (I'm nicknaming her "Bunny." Try and guess why) should be the star of PokeSpe's BW2 chapter.

    I bet I know why if a certain moon is involved. If not then I got nothing. I wouldn't mind if she was the main start since only two females have really taken the lead role, them being Yellow and Platinum. Crystal is half and half. Assuming White2 even appears.

    I was thinking evil clones, myself. We haven't had those yet.

    I saw that and forgot about that one. Still, we don't know who gets what info whenever.

    The whole "Black 2" and "White 2" thing was already stupid enough with the games, but it's gonna be even worse for Special...

    The only things I can think of for the new characters that would keep the tradition of the main characters representing the games are varying degrees of stupid.

    1) They're altered clones of Black and White like Mewtwo.

    2) They're other people who happen to be named "Black" and "White" as well.

    3) They're named the words for black and white in another language. Which would kinda be cheating, as well as being kind of silly since they're from the one region based on the US.

    Number two is probably the lesser of three evils, but it's still not a good situation. I really wish they'd just change the freaking names of these games.

    It's highly unlikely that they'll be called Black 2 and White 2.

    It makes zero sense. And that clone thing you guys keep talking is absurd. Especially in this kind of manga....

    This seems an interesting and somewhat reasonable bet.

    There could even be a running gag with some villain nicknaming them "Black 2" and "White 2" just to piss them of. It'd be a way to use the "2" in the names without it being an actual part of the name.

    I don't think they'll be clones. But if not Black2 and White2 what else would you call them? Will Kusaka finally make main protagonist with original names? Or simply stick Black and White in the new clothes? I mean to be honest I kinda like the new boy and girl the more I look at them and would enjoy them in Special but how this will work. I'm even more curious about the rivals? And the starters. So many questions to be answered.

    Not in the game titles, but for all we know the word "gray/grey" could be mentioned many times in these games (like N mentioned gray in a point he made in Chargestone Cave).

    Which, imo, could help Kusaka if he decided to name the rival "Gray."

    In my opinion they will just name the new characters "Black" and "White." Maybe the boy will be called "White" and the girl "Black" just so things don't get confusing.

    It will still be confusing and people will simply call them White(boy) and Black(girl) which can be just as annoying as Black2 and White2 to be honest.
