B&W2 is still generation five.
It may have been titled differently but it's no different than previous "third" installments.


BW2 have a lot of changes compared to BW1 including a completly different story to the first one that takes place 2 years after the original which is why theyre a seperate generation

That is plain wrong, especially since Black 2 and White 2 are SEQUELS of Black and White.


GSC is a sequel to RBY that's why they're seperate generations. By that logic BW2 is a generation ahead of BW


Not really. GSC were set in a connected region some years after the events of RBY, but they focused primarily on a new region and new Pokemon and only indirectly continuing the RBY story. The Kanto content was essentially post-main story bonus content, making them separate generations.

Black 2 and White 2 take place in the same region with no new Pokemon, just a few new forms of existing ones and directly continues the generation V story making them the first true sequels.

Each generation actually introduces new Pokemon, not just new forms or a new story.

X and Y are therefore generation 6.

It also has a hundred new creatures, B/W 2 has none, case closed.

That is just new game=new gen idiocy.

Everyone of sense knows each "generation" of Pokemon is defined by the introduction of new species (and probably, though to a lesser extent now game system).

1 - RBY - Introduced initial Kanto species. - Game Boy
2 - GSC - Introduced Johto species. - Game Boy Colour
3 - RSE - Introduced Hoenn species. - Game Boy Advance
N/A - FR/LG - no introductions (not a generation)
4 - DPPt - Introduced Sinnoh species. - Nintendo DS
N/A - HG/SS - no introductions (not a generation)
5 - B/W - Introduced Unova species. - Nintendo DSi Enhanced
N/A B2/W2 - no species introductions (not a generation)
6 - X/Y - Will introduce <unknown region> species. - Nintendo 3DS

Most likely, but one can never be sure on message boards, sometimes people can really be that dumb.

No I mean the 9th gen thing is kinda a famous ongoing troll, and it became somewhat of an inside joke lol. I forget the guys name, but you can see him or see him get mentioned from time to time on the B/W2 boards.
