I tried posting this in the GenV forum, but I couldn't. If it needs to be moved, please do.
Should I finish Black before I start Black2?
Really that is up to you.
I am the leader of the pok'emon clan known as the fullbringer's. If you're interested in joining my clan or warring with us please pm me and I will reply as soon as possible.
I personally think that if you already have Black then you should finish it to see how the storyline develops, but it doesn't really matter. I myself skipped Black and White because I knew that there would be something better two years later.
It's recommeded as it'll become easier for you to understand B2/W2 storyline.
If you already own Black or have already started it, yes, I'd recommend finishing that game first. But if you really want to start Black 2 before finishing Black, you'd probably be fine. It is a sequel to Black, of course, but I don't believe the B/W storyline is vital to understanding B2/W2.

You don't need to play Pokémon Black/White before playing Black/White 2 as the game fills you in.
The only reason why one would want to finish Black/White first is so that they can preform the Memory Link which fills you in on what happen between Black/White and Black/White 2

It's all up to you, but I'd recommend if you've already got the sequel you just finish the Pokémon League. I personally think it help's you understand the storyline a bit better.
And you can trade over your old Pokémon.
Suggest that you finish Black before Black 2, the plot wouldn't make sense otherwise.
You should definitively play Black before the sequel
Seeing old characters is always nice, and by playing Black first you can see how Black 2 has built on Black
I think it all depends on what you play for. I'd play them chronologically just because it's the first core game to have a true sequel but if you just want to play for things like battling or trading, I'd say go straight to Black 2 or White 2.

You get more background of Black/White 2 if you play the whole game of Black/White first, but it's your decision. It seemed to me that you could still play White 2 and totally get it... I might be wrong though, I played White first...
It's really up to you.
Personally, I beat Black before I even went to get Black 2 just so I could see all the memory link moments.

In other words, if you can't decide yourself, leave it to fate., you don't need a thread to make the decision for you.
