Black and White 2 had a pretty awesome story and tons of post game content, plus the easy/hard mode was a cool feature. X and Y seems to take a step back for every step forward. The story was almost nonexistent, and there is barely any post game content. I hope that the next entry is more fulfilling.

Even though BW2 was better than XY, X and Y's story wasn't non existent.

What is mega evolution? "Oh it's just cause you get this bracelet and have a bond with pokemon!!"
What is beauty? "Beauty is destroying everyone cause they're not us!!"
That's all I got from the story. The only good part was the old guy with his lost pokemon.

Black and White 2's narrative was the RS formula with no attached message. X and Y had heavy messages despite following the same formula. BW2's primary advantage as a game over BW1 was Pokemon availability, and these games had that, too. I see no reason to consider BW2 the better game.

Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.

Then you misunderstood it or missed it entirely. Go talk to the NPCs in the museum and rewatch the major cutscenes. There's heavy stuff here.

Pokemon X is gonna be dope

Black 2 and White 2 had great post game content but XY does everything better for the most part. I imagine we'll have something with an equally good or better post game by the end of this gen.

At least N was someone you could relate to.

As a person who was raised by wolves, I can agree with this.

Wouldn't it be more reasonable to compare BW to XY? You are comparing a remake/sequel to a first game afterall.
