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


Except, you know, for the new plot and everything.

Using this theory, it would actually be the 8th:

RBG - Gen 1
Y- Gen 2
GSC - Gen 3
RSE - Gen 4
DPP - Gen 5
BW - Gen 6
BW2 - Gen 7
XY - Gen 8

What exactly makes Yellow different from Crystal, FRLG, Emerald, Platinum or HGSS?

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


Your reasoning is flawed as Gold and Silver are sequels to Red and Green, and they are considered as Generation II.

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.
