So this was a big question on the first set of games, so with the games coming out soon, I thought I would go ahead and throw out that question. Which version are you buying?

I bought White version for the first set, but I am thinking about buying the Black version this time around. How many of you guys are buying the other version this time?

I bought White initially, but still haven't beaten it. Does that affect anything if I switch over to buying Black 2 this time around? Hmm...decisions, decisions.

@Pabba: I remember the developers saying that if you bought Black, you should buy Black 2 and White 2 if you bought White. I haven't been digging into spoiler territory, so I don't know if it really makes any difference. It does pull your data across from the original games though.

@WinterSnowblind: I'm trying to figure out how that'll work; will we have to find a second DS/3DS somewhere to import our save data? If so, I'm kind of screwed on that front.

@WinterSnowblind: Yeah I'm curious too, how will that work?

47% of the people wouldn't buy White 2 anyway.

@tracerace11: Unless you've already traded for the other cover pokemon get the same version as you did last time. Zekrom the Pokemon White mascot is in Black 2 this time and vice versa.

I haven't bought a pokemon game since Diamond/Pearl and I don't think I will buy it right away - but I do think I will get one of B/W2 because there are lots of things in it which seem to bring back some of my favourite parts of the series (And it has been just long enough for me to be itching to play a new pokemon game again rather than be happy to binge for a week on the couple I already own).

I voted for Black 2 though as it is likely the one I will buy when I get around to it - mostly due to it having Latios and Magmar in it which I don't own.

I always get the non main version for some reason. Even in cases where it's not completely obvious which is the "red" of the two. So I'm going with white 2.

@Codeacious: @JackSukeru: Like I said, I haven't been keeping up with the games too much. I'm not keen on the way the fansites and fanbase basically spoil every aspect and last details of the games. I'm sure Bulbapedia or Serebii would have more information.

But I imagine you need two DS', I don't see how it'd work otherwise.

I'm buying the one with Zekrom in it. He is the most awesome-looking of the two.

Black 2 has the exclusives I prefer. And I got White last time. Black 2.

@damswedon: So do the saves still exist on my 3DS? I traded in the game a year ago after I beat it. I am still lost on how the old save stuff will work.

I think the pokemon distribution is designed for you to get the one you played first time. I'm getting white.

I guess Black 2, but I haven't played a Pokemon since Diamond, so.....I'm undecided. I'll need to look into which exclusives each has.

IGN Reviewed the game, called it the best Pokemon game on your DS, 9.6.

Gonna get White this time around after getting Black first. Just thought it would be cool to see how the other version is despite it being a new game.

By the way, I'm getting White 2, even though Black 2 is technically cheaper on Amazon for some crazy reason.

Bought both when they originally came out and already got Black 2 and White 2 reserved. Then again, I'm a collector of all the pokemon games so -twitch- Gotta have 'em all!

No, you won't have the save anymore since you traded the cart in. You need to have two DS's so you can link the original and the second together. The only thing that'll do for you is change some of the story events so they refer to what you did in the previous game.

You can also transfer your old pokemon later in the game like always.

I bought White last time and I'm about halfway through it. Haven't played it for like 5 months though, so I doubt I'll get either of the new ones.

That's crazy, why would you do that? Can't you trade online for the things you're missing?

It's not even about getting the missing Pokemon. I just like to have all the games. I have bought every version since the original Red/Blue.

Been meaning to get a pokemon game for my ds for some time, i haven't played one since the game boy versions, what's the difference between black and white, or even 1 or 2.

So what you're saying is that you'd rather be in Obama's Black City than Romney's White Forest?
