One Hit Pixel: "Pokémon has always had three versions. Two that are released simultaneously with minor differences between and one released afterwards with further tweaks. Red and Blue would be joined by Yellow, Gold and Silver would have Crystal as their companion, Ruby and Sapphire would have a new plot string added in Emerald, and you could go into the Distortion World in the follow-up to Diamond and Pearl: Platinum. None of these can really be considered sequels though as they re-tread the same general plotline. Pokémon Black 2/White 2 therefore ventures into new territory by setting the clock two years after the events of Black/White and while it doesn’t quite tick all the boxes, it does provide an intriguing adventure worth embarking upon."
