Remember what I said about taking a little more time and combining your thoughts into fewer posts in non-spam topics, RJF? Just edit the first post if you have a closely-related afterthought.





I don't even know where the idea that this is the end came from.  I'm really surprised by how much is changing with these games compared to the first two, but then again, seeing as it is a timeskip, and we've seen how Kanto can change over the frame of three years...

I'll admit these changes are much more drastic than I was expecting, especially with the massive expansion to the Unovadex.  Hell, I know they did something similar in Sinnoh, but it was only 59 extras, where this sounds like a lot more.  But in a way, it makes up for the extremely bizarre shifts into the post-game in Black 1 and White 1.  And yay for a new Poison-type Gym Leader; now the only thing missing is a Dark-type Gym. :)

So far I think my only real complaint is how dorky the main characters look, but eh, I suppose that's not a major issue.  Can't wait for my birthday, since this is going on my wish list!


EDIT: I'm wondering how the anime will deal with the Dexpansion, come to think of it.  So far, no old Pokémon have been seen in Unova aside from Ash's Pikachu and Team Rocket's Meowth.  No telling if the new availability of old Pokémon will change all that... Maybe Unova will be treated as a dual region, and the east part will correspond to the expansion?

A crapton.  I'm talking about the area that included Lacunosa Town, Undella Town and White Forest or Black City.  The entire postgame section, which was walled off until after you beat Team Plasma.

Most of the North and East of Unova is frozen over, and the town you start in is southwest of the whole region. It's not indicated by CoroCoro in the scan. In fact, the whole region is gonna change a bit.

The northern and eastern parts of Unova are obscured by this ice, and Opelucid City is just on the border of being covered.
There are two new towns and at least one new route to the southwest.
The road between Castelia City and Nimbasa City is complete.
A new building has been added to the front of Nimbasa City, and a new area to the east of the Rondez-View Ferris Wheel.
Driftveil City's lighthouse is gone, and several craters have appeared in the city.
There is now a settlement on Route 4
Liberty Garden is now shown in the official artwork of the map, and appears to have been revamped.
The construction zone and Cold Storage south of Driftveil are both gone.
There is a section taken out of the side of the mountain in eastern Unova, and there are several buildings here.
Challenger's Cave has disappeared.
The webbing that initially blocks the entrance to Chargestone Cave is gone.
The Entralink's moat is now dry, and the inner area has changed.

Even though most of the region is frozen, all the main cities from the BW main storyline are still intact. Maybe the two gym leaders are additions and they're really breaking away from tradition.

I'd never even stopped to consider that, but maybe there will be more gyms this time. :o I wasn't really sure, because one of the two new ones is a Water-type specialist, and I'd kind of equated Cress to one even though his only Water-type is Panpour.

I'm kind of wondering what will happen to the characters from the original games that will be replaced.  Maybe Bianca will be a professor's assistant? Maybe one of the Gym Leaders has been promoted to the Elite Four, or either Hilbert or Hilda is now the Champion? That's definitely something I'm looking forward to finding out.

I'm gonna compile a list of Pokemon from the East of Unova. Some have been mentioned earlier; here are the others. This list will exclude trades, giveaways, swarms and fishing. No White Forest, too.

Gligar line
Zangoose
Seviper
Buizel line
Bidoof line (Oh, the HM glory)
Caterpie line
Weedle line
Ponyta line
Pinsir
Sunkern line
Dunsparce
Heracross
Combee line
Cherubi line
Zubat line (Oh, the caves!)
Tangela line
Taillow line
Lunatone
Solrock
Absol
Drifloon line
Staryu line
Wingull line
Corsola
Swinub line
Delibird
Jynx line
Seel line
Clefairy line
Ditto
Wailmer line
Spheal line
Jigglypuff line
Swablu line
Shuckle
Tropius
Vulpix line
Hoothoot line
Murkrow line
Misdreavus line
Stantler
Chimecho line
Bronzor line
Spearow line
Cubone line

And yes, I found that the Pokemon listed before this post, except for Mareep, Buneary and Growlithe, were in the East. According to this list, it's 83. Plus the Riolu line, Larvitar line, Beldum line, Lapras, Mareep line, Growlithe line, Eevee line, Buneary line, Psyduck line, Mantine line and Sneasel line, that's 111. So far, it's 268.

If I were to include fishing:
Goldeen line
Carvahna line
Remoraid line
Shellder line
Luvdisc

268 + 9 = 277

That's the most I have, but it looks more or less what B2W2 will have.

It's been confirmed that Absol will be coming back. Also, there are a lot of new areas, even one with lilypads and another with a catwalk aisle.

Okay, the last one was exaggerated but there is a place where you can step onto lilypads (How fitting for this forum). There's also a Pokemon concert stage.

And more news... All characters will have animated sprites, including ordinary trainers.

EDIT: The Mareep and Wingull lines are in, too.

Other new stuff include a sort of movie theater and an underwater passage which you walk on. No diving needed.

Also, it seems I was wrong. The first two gym cities have been frozen over.
