    The Trainers not very hard? Have you done ANYTHING in Black2/White2 after beating the Elite 4 the first time?

    I don't really find the mass of Koffing trainers hard in 1st gen either, if anything trainers have only gotten harder with time. I strongly agree on the rival part though, I hate being friends with my rival, your rival in Red/Blue was intentionally a proud douchebag, and the one in Gold/Silver was literally hostile towards you. The only rivals since I really loved to beat the shit out of was the one in Pearl and Black 2, and that wasn't for rival sakes, more because I find them to be bland and annoying characters more than anything else, and I'm pretty sure that isn't how you're supposed to feel about them.

    Yeah on that part I agree as well. I hated the rival in Black2. "I'M NEVER GONNA FORGIVE YOU; BUHUHUHU"

    The thing I hate about him the most is that they're trying to make him likable, but everytime he spews something out of his mouth I just grew to hate him more and more. And for god's sake, that whole Purrloin plot was so damn stupid, I didn't care for that damn cat, especially considering it was something like 2-3 years since it got snatched, and when he finally gets it he's acting like a idiot just because it has become a Liepard, you'd think he didn't know the concept of evolution.

    263 New Pokemon, A ton of new moves/abilities/items. more content in the games after you bet the elite 4, more focus on the story, the game has gotten more user friendly, and it has better graphics. That's about it I think.

    In other news, Delibird still knows Present and Ditto can still only know Transform, and both of them learn nothing from levelling.

    So much wasted potential...

    I don't want that ugly pink blob to be able to do anything. But Delibird could use a evolution, Farfeth'd could use one too.

    Don't you just love how in every generation there is some totally mad pokemon at the end of the pokedex just before the legendaries start? despite them all, I still IV/EV train a perfect Dragonite in each game (/firstgenindietrainer) :P and a Metagross too.

    Sadly they're the only things that have stopped me playing any of my old Pokemon games, they all seem to have some IV/EV trained up super pokemon that I don't wanna get rid of, and I don't wanna buy another catridge xD meh i'll just wait till x/y to get my Pokemon nostalgia fix.

    Not even Mirror Coat? Sludge Bomb? Harden? :3

    I'm with you with Delibird and Farfetch'd, though.

    This is one of those cases where i really wished they listened to the fan base more. A while ago i read an amazing fan-created design which developed the Happiness/Friendship system to go below zero and become Unhappiness/Anger. It allowed for certain drowntrodden, hated and useless Pokemon like Sunflora and Farfetch'd to evolve when unhappy/angry enough and allowed them to 1) actually be useful again, and 2) expand on the happiness/friendship system which currently allows something like 15 Pokemon to evolve when levels are high. But alas...

    I thought Gary was much more annoying than the rival in B&W2. The one in B&W2 I got the sense immediately that we were buddies who were friends and so I named him after my best friend. It was funny, and it was nice that he wasn't trying to be all "I am the best and going to beat you!" - though I wouldn't call him as much of a rival as a friend. That might be why you didn't like it - because he didn't hate you, maybe?

    Gary didn't hate you. But he actually tried to be better than you, which is kinda the point of a rival.

    Well, it's only taken me 385 hours, but I finally beat the Elite 4 in Pokemon White 2. It's the first Pokemon I've finished since Yellow.

    Spent most of it between the sixth and seventh badge doing Dream World and filling up the Pokedex, in order to try to get a Dream World Dragonite for my friend.

    Won with Crobat, Scrafty, Magnezone, Flygon, Chandelure and Dream World Kabutops, if anyone's interested.
