    Question Should Pokemon White owners buy White 2 and Vice Versa?

    Should owners of Pokemon White buy White 2 and vice versa? I suspect that it would benefit you to buy the opposite version given how you can experience things you missed as well as obtain version exclusive Pokemon you may not otherwise have.

    For continuity's sake, yes; White corresponds to White 2 (because it's a sequel). But other than that it doesn't really matter. Getting the opposite Version may actually be more strategic, since you would have access to Black's version-exclusives. However, you would miss out on getting Reshiram since it only appears in White 2.

    If Black 2 didn't have such good version-exclusives (by my standards), I'd be all over White 2, even though I have Black.

    I believe Pokemon Co suggested that you get the sequel to your game. I assume it's for continuity, and possibly a future giveaway w/ the dreamworld.

    That said, I got Black the first time, and am getting White 2, for the pokemon selection and white forest.

    Not really. Unless you plan on receiving the version exclusives.

    the white forest is basically the same as black city in the sequels.

    That's what Masuda says, and it makes sense. White 2 is the sequel to the story you played in White and vice-versa, it's only logical that you choose the same color.

    I don't think it really matters, unless you want version exclusives.

    I have both Black and White, so nothing on me. I spent more time on White because I use it as my main playing file, and Black for other playthroughs, so I suppose I might buy Black 2 first. Since I'll end up with both of them it changes little which one I get.

    Nah, just what ever version you want it doesn't really matter in the long run, unless you want to story to continue.

    Also we have a question thread.

    yeah. Also for continuity. In your original game, n used the opposite dragon against you. You now get a chance to face and catch that same dragon this time around. Zekrom will be mine!!!

    I'm gonna get white 2. It had nothing to do with continuity (even though I did have white); it was just because I liked White Kyurem instead of Black Kyurem. I've decided that I like Reshiram better than Zekrom, full stop

    But in terms of continuity it does makes sense for people who got White to get White 2 (and vice versa). But if you want the version exclusives then you get the opposite game . . . just get whatever game you want

    Why do I have this feeling that this will turn into a speculating thread?

    Well, I have both Black and White. But, I play White more because I wanted Braviary more than Mandibuzz. I'll get Black 2 and White 2. But, play Black 2 more. Isn't Black 2 the continuation of White, or is it with Black? I'm confused.

    BW2 is coming out in outside JP soon. The coverage for bw2 is almost ending. I don't really get if there's anything to speculate.

    Anyways, B2 is awesome because it has Latios. On a side note, when you enter a city (not sure if it's in BW), Black2 is black bar showing name while White 2 is white bar showing name.

    Get Black 2, then later you can get White and Transfer Challenge Mode from Black on to White, so you can play through Black in the regular version and White in Challenge Mode.
    No sig. Deal with it.

    I got both Black1 and White1, but I'm only getting one sequel, White2, for Reshiram, White Kyurem, and Reuniclus.

    This is what i was thinking. But tbh it should be down to the person's choice. I played Black, and Black 2 looks awesome, it has Black Kyurem and Latios. But i like White Kyurem more. so for me its White Kyurem vs Latios.

    Getting the sequel to your game is the smartest choice. Why?

    You like the other mascot better? Just transfer Reshiram/Zekrom from BW1 and make one of them fuse ith Kyurem.

    You want the exclusive area (White forest/Black city) of the other version, the other mode your game doesn't have Challenge/Assist mode , Registeel/Regice and you have the other? Just link with a friend, with Unova link, all them can be unlocked on the other game.

    The things you CAN'T change:

    Route 4 (Ruins from Relic Castle age) x Route 4 (Newly Built Buildings)

    Reverse Mountain appearance Lava/Water.

    The area title cards and battle stat bar: White and Black matching their versions.

    The exclusive layout of Victory Road and Plasma Frigate

    The exclusive appearance of Mistralton City soil near the airport.

    The exclusive Pokémon.

    The exclusive Join Avenue items.

    And of course, Opelucid.

    Also the gender of the Jellicent that appears in Undella Bay is dependent on your game (B2 gets male, W2 gets female; trivial, I know, but worth mentioning for coverage's sake).
