"It was back in March last year that I rather enthusiastically reviewed Pokémon Black/White. Here we are just over a year and a half later with Black/White 2. ‘Expanded sequels’ are not new to the Pokémon series – after all we’ve had Yellow, Crystal, Emerald etc. and when Black/White 2 was announced, it sort of felt like they had run out of colours and had just decided to stick a 2 on for the sake of it. The follow-on games were never really anything except minor changes/expansions of their predecessors. Was it just that they had decided that calling something Grey was a bit too boring?"
