Pokémon Black and White 2 should be coming out for the Nintendo 3DS and not its predecessor.
Bitmob on an anti-Nintendo spree today? First, the Wii U will fail, now this? If you look at Japan, the recent release of Pokemon + Nobunaga actually increased 3DS sales. You're forgetting Nintendo has a lot of 3DS exclusive software being released around Pokemon White/Black 2's release. There will be an increase in 3DS sales. Believe.
This exact same thing happened with pokemon crystal, emerald and now black and white 2. Releasing the "sequel" to these games on the newest system would have hurt overall software sales and angered the fan base not yet ready to buy the next console. The 3ds will have its own pokemon entry made 100% for the 3ds. This is simply the sendoff for pokemon on the ds.
Pokemon for 3ds can come out whenever it damn well pleases and move systems like nobody's business.
I thought the same way at first... Pokemon 3DS is coming, you can bet your life on it. Now, let's look at the big picture. If Nintendo decides to release a Pokemon game for the WiiU, it will more than likely be DS (and 3DS) compatible. This is a great thing! I won't have to buy another handheld (...yet) to battle online in HD.
I think not, the Nintendo DS is still going well, that will promise better compatibility with the first Black and White, and you still keep the entire Generation on 1 platform (DSi). The only downside is, the pirates can get a DS or DSi game a lot easier, than a 3DS game.
