* AudienceAlienatingPremise: A minor example, but despite these games' hugely expanded Pokédex, some people find the continued absence of world-famous SeriesMascot Pikachu to be quite baffling. This raises accusations from some fans that the selection of old Pokémon was deliberately meant to leave certain species out in order to increase hype for ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'',[[note]]which have a similarly large Pokédex but more proven fan-favorite species, including Pikachu and the Kanto starters and legendaries[[/note]] which adds more fuel to the FandomRivalry with those games.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids:
** [[spoiler:Ghetsis attempts to directly attack the player character with Kyurem.]]
** The game features a surprising amount of human-on-human violence, at least by the standards of the series. Sure, it's all shown in map sprites, so you don't exactly ''see'' anything, but the implications aren't pretty.

* VindicatedByHistory: When ''Black 2'' and ''White 2'' were released, they were widely deemed inferior to the original ''Black'' and ''White'', became the worst-reviewed main series ''Pokémon'' games, and drew some controversy for their [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot unsatisfying conclusions]] to some of the plot threads in ''BW''. Furthermore, the announcement of ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' made ''[=B2W2=]'' look like they were merely meant to [[{{Filler}} tide fans over]] until the next generation. A couple years later, after ''X'' and ''Y'' proved to be controversial games in their own right and ''BW''[='s=] "Unova-only" dex [[DeaderThanDisco fell out of favor]], fans became a lot warmer towards ''[=B2W2=]'' for the various advantages it had over the other two sets of games - namely, the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters huge Pokédex drawing from all five generations at the time]], the vast postgame with the Pokémon World Tournament and lots of catchable legendaries, and the sheer number of options and features available. Some fans even claim them to be the best games in the series, resulting in a FandomRivalry with the Gen I fans who were won over by ''X'' and ''Y''.

** [[MundaneMadeAwesome The animated trailer]]. After watching it, many fans clamored for a TruerToTheText anime based around the new games to either run alongside or replace the normal anime, but nothing ever came of it, [[NoExceptYes except for]] ''Anime/PokemonOrigins''.
* ToughActToFollow: Despite all the new features in the game, it was kinda tough to live up to the praises of [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite the original ''Black'' and ''White'']]. This may be responsible for the games' positive-but-mixed-by-Pokémon-standards reception.

** One of the few bridges not closed at the start of the game is the Driftveil Drawbridge, the Pokémon World equivalent to the [[UsefulNotes/NewJersey George Washington Bridge]], the bridge at the center of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Lee_lane_closure_scandal Bridgegate]].

* CriticalDissonance: These games are the worst-reviewed main series games (though still very well-reviewed), but some communities (particularly [[ImageBoards /v/]]) believe ''Black 2'' and ''White 2'' to be [[MagnumOpus among the series' best]] for the sheer amount of postgame content and features.
