Well, I just defeated Iris.

And thus oficially completed the main part of Black 2.

I gotta say, just like any other Pokémon main game, I found it to be very enjoyable. Picking my team members proved to be very hard since GF has made sure to let us have access to many amazing Pokémon such as Riolu, Eevee or Zorua which honestly made the choice (at least for me) even harder. I eventually settled down for a team of four which I'll shortly post under the text.

In terms of plot and Team Plasma, this game wasn't what I expected. I expected more of a conflict between the two factions, though the old Plasma barely showed up except for a few ocassions including the "great" climax. I don't know, I feel like the new Plasma didn't leave much impact on me and neither did Akuroma/Colress. Maybe it's because it was Japanese, perhaps because I didn't understand the lines, but something was lacking. I also feel like more of the Unova region should have been frozen over.

Opelucid looked really cool while frozen, though, how much of a threat did that present? It was only one city. Were they planning to take over the region that way? Freeze everything over with their flying ship? I doubt it, but I'd love to see it. I honestly feel like most of the region should have been frozen, but whatever.

I also found this game to ve VERY easy to beat. Maybe it's because I only had four Pokémon so I always found myself a few levels above of other trainers?

Oh right, my team. Here is it:

Level: 63 @Miracle Seed (Overgrow)

- Leaf Blade
- Slam
- Coil
- Aqua Tail

Level 62 @Magnet (Static)

- Signal Beam
- Thunder
- Power Gem
- Discharge

Level 62 @Chorcoal (Flame Body)

- Flamethrower
- Psychic
- Thunderbolt
- Rock Slide

Level 63 @Mystic Water (Torrent)

- Drill Peck
- Surf
- Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam

If you're wondering where I have this Empoleon from, I downloaded the mystery gift event - the level 15 Piplup who knows the move Song and holds Metronome. Needless to say, he leveled up quite fast and turned out to be very powerful.

But this game wasn't bad by any means. I really, really enjoyed it! ^^

    They were gonna freeze stuff so they could steal pokémon more easily. Basically new team Plasma is a slightly improved team Rocket.

    They freeze over Unova because it bounds the region. /rimshot]

    Honestly though I adore Neo Team Plasma because there is so much care for the Pokémon they have(%99 LESS PATRATS OR TRUBBISHES) and their leaders, each of which represent a specific deal.

    I definately agree Retro Team Plasma should have been given a more active role instead of enriching the backstory and world of Black 2 and White 2 and be a part of Hugh's redemption(even though his is comparatively more small than Barry's attempt at redeeming himself on Stark Mountain, Silver's eventual redemption as Clair's understudy, or Blue and Cheren's eventual redemption as Gym Leaders). At the very least I would like to see rest of Plasma Sages confronting Neo Team Plasma, in addition to that I would like see Neo Team Plasma have more executives who are in it only for power, money and domination, not their rather noble yet confused goals, in addition what we already got.

    @Trainer Yusuf;

    Yes, speaking of Hugh, I wasn't really content with his role. At least compared to Cheren and Bianca. I mean, those two went through growth and character development. Hugh did not appear as often and didn't play that much of a role.

    Though I did like his rash personality and when he punched that grunt on the bridge.
