I've been an avid trainer since Red and Blue. I still have the cartridge, too. Played every single gen up to B&W. I still haven't finished B&W, though, so I haven't tried B&W 2 as of yet.
My favorite has always been the G/S/C gen, even moreso HG&SS remakes. Still gotta finish up that game, though... At least I can boast that I got nearly 90% Pokedex completion in Crystal. Just needed to level up a few I had in the boxes.
But I'm hoping they're not trying too hard to get a release out and over-saturate the hype. I mean, how long has it been since they released B&W2? A year? I also need a 3DS to play these new games properly, too. (Ha.)
