Should I get Black/White 2 or wait for this gen?

I haven't played a Pokemon game since Silver and then I "grew up" but X and Y looks incredibly cool and I've been looking for reasons to get a 3DS.

But now I'm getting all nostalgic for playing a Pokemon game, which are always fun, meaty RPGs. Black and White 2 looks pretty fun but I'm wondering if I should just hold out for X and Y so everything feels fresh and new again. Then again, 7 months is a long time to wait (for me at least). Is X and Y going to be a huge jump from the 2D games to the point where I won't be spoiling myself by picking one up?

Play white 2 first. You won't regret it.

White 2 is fantastic. Get it before Gen VI comes out.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

I highly suggest White 2. The postgame will leave you playing for months till X/Y is out :D

And..

I say you should wait but if you have a 3DS now or plan to get one soon grab Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. It isn't anything like Pokemon but it is one of the few amazing games on the 3DS.

It would easily hold you over until X and Y comes out as long as you don't mind a game that is hard as nails for new players but has a helpful community.

So not only would you not be buying a system for a single game, you will also be able to have something to do during the wait that will leave you a fresh return for Gen 6.
