Should I get Black 2 this close to release?

I don't want to be burned out, but I'm getting the itch.
Is it one of the better ones?

Depends, do you have the original White or Black?

If the answer is "No", then I'd say, "Yes, get Black 2."

Chances are IF they ARE going to do a transfer system to get Pokemon from the older games to X/Y, chances are it'll be through B/W and B2/W2. I'm kinda doubting they'll allow transfers from D/P/Pt and HG/SS to X/Y.

Besides, if there's a limit as to how many Pokemon you can transfer from the older games over per hour/day, then you'd have two games to transfer from, thus 12 Pokemon per hour/day. Just something to think about.

Hahah i literally had the same problem, had nothing to play and wanted to do some pokemon- had never played black 2. I bought it, its pretty good so far.

Id say you likely wont get burnt out, just play black 2 idly and im sure x will be good enough and different enough youll not be able to put it down.

Yeah I think I'm gonna mull over it a little yet.
I'll probably cave by tomorrow though lol.
Thanks for the replys.

I'd say yeah.

If you have White or Black, you can breed some eggs of Pokemon you love/always wanted to use but never got to and use them in your run through Black 2. That's what I've done and it's been quite fun.

definitely not.

not because it's too close to release, I mean definitely not because generation 5 in general was terrible.

gen IV was the best one so far, so maybe prepare yourself your pokemon(s) of choice in platinum
