Love:
- The music.
- The story.
- Most of the pokemon designs.
- Being able to use TMs as much as I want.
- Challenge Mode.
- The slightly improved graphics.
- Likable rivals.
- Easier way to level up your pokemon.

Hate:
- How boring the region was.
- Dreamworld.
- A few pokemon designs. Namely Zoroark, the whole Timburr line, Garbodor and Genesect.
- Unova Pokemon only during White.
It's-a me!

I hate how a lot of the TM's are only obtained through BP, and that list was only expanded in Black 2 and White 2. I hate how the Dream World is used as a tool to drive traffic to their website.

I love everything else about it. Fifth Generation has actually been one of my favorite generations so far, and that's saying a LOT. The overall quality-of-life and aesthetic imrpovements over Fourth Gen were a huge step in the right direction for me. Black 2 and White 2 are, so far, my favorite Pokemon games to date. Black Skycraper, White Treehollow, Unova Link, Infrared Box-to-Box trading from anywhere (not just a Pokemon Center), animated battle sprites, and a slough of other things have really reforged this series into an even better iteration.
If you're a gamer, it is your responsibility to share this with everyone you know:

It seemed so much more tedious to me than the previous games. I'm not entirely sure why.


really? That's interesting, because the Pokémon were all-new, and the gameplay was much speeded up. Just look up a (non-edited) battle video from Diamond/Pearl, and then one from Black/White. You'll be amazed how faster everything got.

The battles themselves may have been sped up, but by the time I got to the final four it felt like the game had been dragging on forever...

And then that wasn't the end! I finally just got a friend of mine to get me a vast supply of rare candy, bloated my Pokemon up to 100, and went through the four the second time without exploring much of the remaining routes. I couldn't take it any more.
Often, when you try too hard to act superior, the opposite occurs.

I love the new pokemon and the general "feel" of the region
I hate the new EXP system. It's terrible, your levels get waaay too high.
