Something I've been seeing almost across the board with the response to these games is that they don't seem complete enough. Maybe people were having too high of expectations, or maybe GF have once again set us up for sequels. People have been frustrated with the plot leaving some of the Plasma plot unfinished. Could this be setting up for another game? There have also been complaints about how the new formes in the games seem superficial, with possible formes hinted at in the original Black and White not being present but once again being hinted towards. Do Original Dragon and Genosect formes still have a possibility of existing?
Do people really expect DLC to be as in depth as additional story elements? DLC in pokemon games so far have been pretty insubstantial, being almost entirely cosmetic like with C-Gear skins. I could see DLC for Elite 4 members in the World Tournament, but that's about the furthest I'd see them going. Putting in additional characters with 6 pokemon each doesn't seem like something that would be too tough. Giving a resolution to the plot with Ghetsis seems like something to important to just be DLC.
Game Freak releasing full out sequels rather than a third version was completely unprecedented, so could they surprise us again by releasing a second sequel in Gen V. As much as people think Gen VI are right around the corner, we really have no idea, and it's entirely possible another sequel could come out in a year or two to tide over the time before Gen VI. It really seems that GF have set themselves up for a continuation of this story. Gen II gave us a continuation of the Gen I story, but with BW giving us a story continuation within the same generation, could they be looking to keep the entire Unova story within a single generation?
Discuss your thoughts on the possibility of a second sequel and what you would like to see in them.
I know RS remake speculation can be a touchy subject, so it'd be nice to try and avoid bringing that in here. I'm aware technically this is "Discussion of video games that are not B2W2," but with mentions of possible second sequels being made across this forum, it seemed appropriate to create a single thread to contain all of that.
