So, what does everyone make of the first followups to a mainline Pokémon duo?
It’s certainly exceeded my expectations in terms of freshness, feeling far ‘newer’ than a Pokémon Grey could ever do. I do feel the first few hours don’t seem as cohesive as Black and White, though, and that game’s reboot roots are obviously not going to impress in a direct sequel.
But the neat additions, streamlining and depth have caused me not to notice this too much recently. I’m having too much fun at PokéStar Studios and that new avenue place.
