    I know lots about the B2W2, but I wouldn't dare watch an LP or walkthrough of it. As I said, I know lots about B2W2, but I want to experience the game myself. I know most of the pure information, but I actually want to enjoy the game myself without watching an LP of the complete game and going "great, I've already seen the whole game on YouTube, what's the point of playing it now". And that's pretty much my thought process for any Pokemon game. Or any game in general.

    I usually watch LPs, and I started watching Spade's one but the updates were irregular. I know more or less everything for BW2, but I don't think I'll be getting them, so I wouldn't considered the game spoiled.

    By the way @yourlilemogirl; I think you forgot to put the actual poll up. Unless that was on purpose. :D

    EDIT: Anyway, adding to my previous comment, when it comes to games like this I just have to know details such as the gym leaders, the gym leader's teams, the E4, etc. And so whenever a new generation starts, I just have to know every small detail about the new Pokemon just so my head doesn't explode. Because that happened once.

    As someone who probably wont get BW2 for ages, I just have to watch some parts. I probably wont get it for about 4 months after the release dates. I havent watched many parts but I have been interested to see whats changed, what pokemon now appear and whats changed from the origional. Im not good at being patient so I had to. I havent particularly been bothered about the characters..

    Also, sorry if im wrong, but shouldent there be a poll added?

    Huge thanks to Blue Dragon for my EPIC avatar & sig

    @GallifreyanGallade; & @mwetwe;
    The poll wasn't visible because i was still typing it out lolol

    Anyway to add my 2 cents to the discussion, With being a Video Games and B2/W2 section mod, it kinda comes with the territory of having to allow myself be spoiled badly about the new games so i can do my job properly. I don't regret it since i'm still pretty stoked for these games! =D

    it also doesn't hurt that my YT subbox is filled to the brim with walkthroughs

    I've looked at all the spoilers by now and know everything about the games pretty much. Honestly, I don't really mind spoilers forPokemon games, I actually like following the news for new games as it becomes known rather than walk into it not knowing what to expect, it honestly makes me more excited to play the games when I know about them. I honestly was really anxious to hear about the changes.

    I never try to find out too much about the new games, I want them to be somewhat enjoyable at least. The most I've tried to figure out is what Pokemon have been added, but haven't even done that completely.

    I'm a HUGE spoiler hound. 8D; The more I know about a game, the more excited I get for it. Been watching Marriland's walkthrough of B2W2 recently, using it as a guide along with my own JP White 2.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    I selected "Let myself get spoiled on some things, but I didn't actively seek out spoilers" because the only spoilers I have seen are from reading and replying to threads in the Current events: Black 2 and White 2 forum of BMGf and reading articles on Bulbanews or other Pokémon news sites. I would also prefer to not see very many B2W2 spoilers because I want to learn them by playing the game itself.

    I don't know a lot about B2W2. I only ask a question, regarding those games, if I read something that I don't understand. So, I guess you can say I spoiled it slightly, but not enough to ruin the initial experience.

    Picked the "some" option. I like to know the teams and levels of the gym leaders, E4 and champion, and some other trainers because it helps me build my own team and I can level grind at appropriate times.

    The biggest spoiler I've read so far was speculated by fans and hinted in a trailer.

    Still don't know the details of the main plot except what's been in trailers and some general hints.

    I only know about who's participating in the World Tournament, how Akuroma is related to the major plot, and a little bit of N and Ghetsis, but I don't know anything else - I don't know any of the details, and I don't want to know more than that. XDD

    I know the new gym leaders and elite four, as well as the map layout, but that's about it.

    Goblins and Saurus and Cheetaurs, oh my!

    I don't actively seek out spoilers, because I only want to know the regional dex, not the plot nor the champion, which made me despise "her" even more.
