Johto and Kanto are next to each other, and Hoenn is close to Johto, as we learned from Orre's Pokémon. Unova, however, is farther from all of the other regions than any previous region is from another. Also, an advertising point of Black and White was that it would be all-new Pokémon - it would be like playing Kanto for the first time, or like anyone playing their first Pokémon game.

The bag's Free Space, the ability to move around items within the party, the new PC, and better breeding mechanics all cause me to say that I prefer B2W2. I do, however, feel that there are too many legends - capturing them doesn't feel special anymore, especially now that I soft reset for natures. It was an adventure; now, it's a hassle.
Also, the unbelievable number of PP Maxes and Rare Candies I had accumulated by the end of the B2 made me quite happy, as well as the Dream World Poliwhirl I caught after a few Grotto resets. However, the addition of flashing lights in Elesa's gym were not appreciated. I battled through there with my eyes closed.

I use cheating devices, I breed to perfection, and I see Pokémon as useless if they have the wrong nature. Guess what? I still love Pokémon, especially the ones I capture, hack, breed, and/or train myself. All the extra codes and effort contribute to my affection for them. If you disagree, I love debate.
