Pokémon Black and White: Version 2

Developer: Game Freak

Platforms: Nintendo DS

Release Date: October 7, 2012

Being the first time Game Freak's put out a direct sequel within a generation of Pokémon games, Black and White: Version 2 were met with some serious trepedation. However, with the strength of the original pair resting in its much more involving storyline, the extension of it in Version 2 is more than welcome. There may be way too many Pokémon to catch now (151 were enough, thank you very much), but with the advent of online play, it's more relevant and fun than ever.
