All guesses pertaining to the first games should be placed here.

N releasing his dragon and giving it to you is non-canon.If we get a third game, he'll still have his dragon, and it'll work its way into the plot somehow.
Near the release of Pokémon X and Y, we'll get a final PWT DLC tournament with Hilbert/Hilda as the final opponent.There are unused lines of dialogue in the game for Hilbert and Hilda as PWT opponents, and their battle sprites are in the game data (and possibly their overworld sprites too).
Black/White will be a trilogy, with the third story taking place in Hoenn.But only for the first ten minutes of the game. The protagonist will be a Hoenn native that's about to get their first Pokemon, along with their childhood friend and sibling. As they're on their way to Prof. (Brendan/May) Birch, they come see the original B/W protagonist fall to the ground from out of nowhere, unconscious. A case falls next to him/her, with the Unova starters inside. A mook comes and tries to take Hilbert/Hilda, forcing the protagonist and co. to choose their starters and do a three-on-one battle. They win, but then a whole bunch of other mooks come out of nowhere, knocking the kids out. When they come to, they're on a ship, locked in a cell with Hilbert/Hilda. Once they escape the cell, they battle their way topside, only to run into one of the admins. Hilbert/Hilda decides to take him on, allowing the kids to escape on a lifeboat. As they get away from the ship, an explosion erupts and sinks the ship, with no sign of Hilbert/Hilda. The three contemplate "the mysterious trainer's" fate and what all happened as they drift. In the morning, they're rescued and brought to shore on Unova. And so the story begins.
If the story begins after the events of Black and White and your character has defeated N and Ghetsis, you'll fight the Seven Sages instead of the eight Gym Leaders.If the games are a direct sequel with the same player character (not just Hilbert and Hilda, but the same Hilbert/Hilda who went through the events of Black/White), it'd be rather tedious for both the character and the player in real life to have to fight all 8 Gym Leaders again. Instead, the main bosses will be the Seven Sages, while the Gym Leaders will be optional bosses after clearing the main storyline.
At least one of the Sages will have done a Heel-Face Turn.And they may appear as Gym Leaders/a Gym Leader (or even Elite 4), as suggested above. My guess is that Rood will be the one to have a Heel-Face Turn, given that after-game he tells the protagonist that he wants to see N confront Ghetsis. My guess is that Rood will be a Fire type user, as his name translates to red. To add to this, he may use a Flareon as his main Pokemon.
Hilbert and Hilda will still be the protagonists, but the story will take place after the events of Black and White.The protagonist that you don't choose will have gone through the events of Black and White (defeating Ghetsis, capturing Reshiram in Black 2 or Zekrom in White 2, etc.) and will be fightable as a True Final Boss with their dragon, similar to Red in Gold and Silver.
If the version mascots are actually the same color as the box art as well as different forms of Kyurem, then that means that...
The reason why Kyurem is the main Pokemon is because Team Plasma managed to get both legendary dragons.It just so happens that Ghetsis is even more Dangerously Genre Savvy, so he ordered Team Plasma to get both of the dragons. Ghetsis has the dragon you expect to get in the Black and White games(Reshiram/Zekrom), in case N fails/so he doesn't have to rely on just Hydreigon to get rid of him. Instead of getting an orb, you need to search for an object to summon Kyurem, who'll be able to counter N's Pokemon.
Hoenn will be involved(not op) Some have pointed out the red and blue marks in the logo appear to be a ruby and sapphire...
Hilda/Hilbert or N will be the protagonist
Keldeo, Meloetta, and Genesect will get new and improved events in Black 2 and White 2.Black 2 and White 2 will be released in June, while Keldeo's movie will come in July... The release dates have been timed just right so all of the unreleased Mythical Pokemon will be distributed after the new games come out. This is the reason their events in the original Black and White are somewhat lackluster; they're essentially "consolation events" for whoever hasn't gotten the new games or trades K/M/G over to the original pair.
The new region is a New Jersey equivlent.Topics.
Ghetsis takes over Unova.Ghetsis manages to find and kidnap/knock out N, then puts his hands on N's dragon (Zekrom in Black, Reshiram in White), and somehow fuses it with Kyurem, successfully corrupting the Pokemon since Kyurem is arguably evil. Then he uses its power to wreak havoc over the whole region of Unova, which either freezes over (thanks to Kyurem's power) or just turns into some kind of wasteland (mirroring the climate-changing attempts of Gen 3 Team Magma/Aqua), and thus taking whole control. The player will have to rescue N and save the whole region with his help, teaming up with the remaining legendary. They will fight Ghetsis once again, and capture the fused Kyurem, probably leading to another transformation. Either Kyurem reverts to its original form or the remaining legendary fuses with it, bringing back to life the original dragon of the myths.
Kyurem's two new forms are the original Zekrom and ReshiramWhen the original dragon split into two, B-Kyurem and W-Kyurem were born, but were called Zekrom and Reshiram by the humans (maybe the brothers) who witnessed it. As they continued to fight, they kept receiving more and more damage until what was left of each dragon became the black and white stones, with the icy and grey bits that were broken off fusing together and falling back to the earth. The truth recreated W-Kyurem, but it lacked something, while ideals created B-Kyurem, though it also lacked something; thus, when the twin dragons were reborn from the stones, they were more complete, because the trainer summoning them had much stronger belief in what they represented, and since the icy grey bits represented a void, they were drawn to each other after being cast off during the original fight. The real reason for the Giant Chasm was the result of the remains trying to fix itself by making up for what it lack just as it impacted where the chasm is now (though this is more of a side guess). The reason Kyurem regains these forms is because whoever is using it has a stronger belief in truth or ideals. On the note, the original dragon may only be brought back when someone has all three of the tao trio in their party.
Ghetsis will fuse Kyurem with N's dragon, with YOUR help.After Ghetsis is defeated, you'll run into the Shadow Triad on the Marvellous Bridge, just like last time. But instead of giving you the Sinnoh dragons' orbs, they'll hand over some mysterious McGuffin (possibly related to the Light and Dark Stones) while vaguely implying that it would be best if it were kept out of Ghetsis' hands. And who better to protect the McGuffin than you yourself, since you're the great hero of Unova who bonded with one of the Tao dragons and saved civilization as we know it? (Gameplay-wise, it'll go into your Key Items pocket to prevent you from just giving it to a Pokemon and sticking it in the PC or something). Later, there will be some big disturbance at the Giant Chasm. Being the dutiful Pokemon protagonist that you are, you go investigate. Surprise! N and his dragon will also be there, trying to help the local Pokemon in distress. But before you get a chance to catch up, guess who appears and starts ranting about how the two of you ruined his plans, but now he'll finally have his revenge? Ghetsis then reveals that when Reshiram and Zekrom split off from each other long ago, Kyurem was left behind as a frozen husk. But under the right circumstances, it could be made whole once again. All it would take is for Kyurem and one of the Tao dragons to be together in the presence of a certain item. And of course, you were thoughtful enough to bring that very item along with you. Ghetsis draws Kyurem to him and the McGuffin activates, pulling Kyurem and N's dragon to it and merging them into one entity. (Why didn't Ghetsis just hold onto the McGuffin himself? He was on the run and needed to make sure it wouldn't be lost if he ever got caught. And this way, not only does N lose his beloved Pokemon partner, but you'll also both be haunted by the fact that you, the first human N could ever begin to open up to, had a hand in it. And why doesn't the McGuffin affect your dragon if you have it in your party at the time? It was safe in its Pokeball, while N's was out in the open.) Ghetsis moves in to capture Kyurem, but N, instead of slipping into a Heroic BSOD as expected, calls on the local Pokemon to help him stop his father. While they're thus preoccupied, N shouts for you to save not just his own dragon, but Kyurem as well, from being doomed to an unhappy life as a pawn in Ghetsis' evil plan. Naturally, the story has a happy ending; either you capture Kyurem, and since you cannot capture another Trainer's Pokemon, N's dragon will be separated from it along with the McGuffin, or you defeat Kyurem before it's too late, and it no longer has the energy to maintain the fusion. In either case, N's dragon will be freed and Ghetsis will be stopped. Upon closer inspection of the McGuffin, you'll see that it now contains an imprint of N's dragon's aura. The altered McGuffin will then be a regular, equippable item, allowing you to bestow Kyurem with its alternate forme whenever you like without having to sacrifice N's dragon.
You'll fight the Shadow TriadExactly What It Says on the Tin
Unova's ancient enemy has had his revengeHigh above in the hall of Judgment, mighty king Kyurem rained down pain and destruction on the people below for fun. Kyurem dared not move on the lower Pokemon's territory while the Musketeer trio kept watch, but because People and Pokemon did not associate with one another at this time, people were fair game. Living miserably, people lashed out at one another in an attempt to grab some illusion of control and power. Occasionally, their fights got out of hand and the Musketeers would step in, but they never bothered to strike at the root of the problem. There was a Pokemon who did care, though, as a rash hero attempting to assault the Hall of Origin learned first-hand. The hero befriended another dragon who dwelt above and together they toppled King Kyurem, sending his prone form crashing down to the land below. With their oppressor gone, the people were united under their hero and he founded the Unova region. Lost to history, Kyurem awoke in the depths of a giant chasm. The spread of people had sent the Musketeers into hiding and though less severe, continued conflict between people had split the hero's dragon into two dormant halves. Kyurem was technically free to reign again, but was too weak to return to his throne; he could barely make it out of the chasm. So he decided to live there for awhile, setting out every night to feast on whatever he could catch to regain strength. Once again, conflict awoke the halves of the hero's dragon just when Kyurem had recovered enough to cross the Unova region, and he set out after them. One was defeated and flew to a faraway land, but one stayed behind and Kyurem defeated him. He's not quite the same, but the king is back to full strength; he used the remains of his defeated foe to get there. Now he plans to destroy the region his foe created. Unova is as much for Pokemon as it is for people, though, and there are still three Pokemon who can take down Kyurem and cut out the dragon pieces he has assimilated...
The protagonists of B/W2 will be related to Hilbert and Hilda.They look unsettingly similar. Perhaps cousins or younger siblings?
Hilbert and Hilda will have been eliminated by Ghetsis off-screen as of B/W 2.C'mon. You KNOW Game Freak hates us and won't even give them a cameo.
Black 2 and White 2 will use Lock-on TechnologyYou connect them to their predecessor to expand the game or play them alone.
Reason For No Pokemon In UnovaPokemon from past regions escaped from the transfer system and are all over Unova now. Hey, summon referred to it in the original Black and White.
N will meet his real family.Any guesses as to who it is?
N will be the main character.It takes place in the region N left to after Black and White as he journeys through the region. He starts hearing about people convincing others to release their Pokemon, but when they try to do the same to him he fights them off with his dragon (Reshiram in Black 2, Zekrom in White 2). He learns about the rise of the new Team Plasma and how they plan to take the dragon from the other hero. He returns to Unova, pulling off a Big Damn Heroes moment on either Hilbert or Hilda (changing depending on the version), and after defeating Neo-Plasma, he journeys through Unova doing things right. As a bonus, if this turns out correct, overworld sprite Pokemon will have human language speech boxes.
N will solve his puzzle cube.It has been mentioned on the concept sheet for the puzzle cube that it has a keyhole in its middle. The player will recieve the key in the course of the story and N manages to solve the puzzle, perhaps offscreen. Then, the two items are combined and awake a Pokémon, possibly the "original" dragon or Black/White Kyurem.
Extremely unlikely, but Mewtwo (or maybe Arceus) will turn out to be the Tao Trio's master.Rule of Cool, people. Since it seems (so far) that Kyurem doesn't have any sort of "leader" relationship over Reshiram and Zekrom, they might pull a reverse Lugia/Regigigas and make an older Pokémon the master of the new trio. In Mewtwo's case, he's been shown (albeit very little) to be a "rival" of sorts to Kyurem in the TCG, so maybe they could make up some backstory about the recently created Mewtwo discovering the ancient Pokémon Kyurem and deciding to reunite the Tao Trio to master its power. In Arceus' case, it's already the master of two trios (the lake and creation trios), so why not a third? It could be revealed as the being that gave birth to the original dragon (that split into Reshiram/Zekrom/Kyurem) or something.
The Tao Trio and the Weather Trio are connected
Expanding on the above statement, Rayquaza is the original dragon that Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem split fromNot much evidence, but this could be a possibility if the two trios are indeed connected. Consider how Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem all have weather-changing properties, and how Rayquaza can learn most of the moves that all three dragons can learn and more. This is highly unlikely unless they decide to retcon RSE and HGSS to make any encounters with Rayquaza there non-canon.
The Sinnoh Dragon Trio will be involved.In Black/White, after defeating N and Ghetsis, the Shadow Triad gives the player character the Adamant/Lustrous/Griseous Orbs on Ghetsis' orders, and it is suggested that this could be another part of Ghetsis' plan (Is he testing you? Or using you?). Perhaps B 2 W 2 will elaborate on this, and will reveal what Ghetsis intended to accomplish by giving the Orbs to Hilbert/Hilda.
Black Kyurem/White Kyurem are artificially-enhanced versions of Kyurem intended to emulate Reshiram/Zekrom.We know that Team Plasma CAN augment Pokémon from Genesect. With both dragons denied them, even outright enemies of Team Plasma now (since Ghetsis kinda blew the thing with N), they'll capture Kyurem, the original dragon's broken husk, and use tissue samples taken in secret from N's dragon to convert it into a rough approximation of Zekrom or Reshiram.
This game will take place several years in the futureThe characters have aged, the BW protagonist is an adult, things have changed, etc.
Concordia and Anthea will play a role in the plotEither that or they'll be given back stories.
We will learn how long after Platinum BW took placeWe know HGSS and Platinum take place roughly 3 years after FRLG and Emerald but the fifth gen is ambiguous so far.
There's a split timeline and this game will either reference it or be about itSomeone graphed it out◊ already. In Opelucid City a character mentioned alternate dimensions - referring to White if you're playing Black or Black if you're playing White. While it could be breaking the fourth wall, maybe it's not.. I'm betting this is a Chekhov's Gun which either won't be looked into until another generation, if at all.
We will get to fight the Seven Sages.And their Pokemon shall be based off the colors they are named by.
You'll get to pick a partner for your journey, not too unlike the missions in Pokemon Ranger.After giving your name and gender and picking your starter, you'll be able to choose between Bianca, Cheren... and N. You'll travel Unova with them and get to have "conversations" like you did in DP Pt with the Stat Trainers. Pretty much all battles will be double. How this affects team-building has yet to be seen, but most likely their team will complement your own (if you have a Glass Cannon or Fragile Speedster, they'll pick a Stone Wall or Mighty Glacier to cover your weaknesses and vice versa).
You'll go to Hoenn after the main gameThis may be a bit far-fetched, but the colors of the boxes (along with the popular hope of fans of a remake of the Gen 3 titles) certainly could mean more than for Zekrom/Reshiram. Game Freak may pull a "Gold and Silver" with this by allowing us to go back to a previous region post-game. This can also explain the lack of many endgame options in the original Black and White, along with the spiked levels of trainer's Pokemon.
Expanding on the above WMG, You'll get to go to all four of the previous regions after the main game(This is a long one, so bear with me) Once you beat the main game, the red boat in Castelia City (the one in the port closest to the city entrance) will become available for travel to the other regions. At first, you'll only be able to travel to Sinnoh, but the other regions will become available as you beat each region's Pokemon League (8 Gyms plus Elite 4), the specifics and changes of each are explained below.
We wont be able to go to past regions but you can still get the experienceUnova is based off New York, and New York has places like Little Ittaly and China Town. After you compleat the Main Game you'll gain access to places like Jotoh Town, Little Sinno, Hoenn Island and New Kanto. There you'll be able to chalenge Gym leader equivalents or the real deal if visiting and even face their respective leagues.
The antagonist will beThe Master. After crashing the TARDIS on this fascinating planet he/she learn that he plans to enslave the entire Pokémon world and all its inhabitants by using the power of Kyuurem. And it is up to the protagonist, aka the Doctor, to stop him. The only way to do that is to beat him in a battle which means that you'll have to beat the Gym Leaders and Elite Four (who are unaware of his plans) because he happens to be the current league champion. He/She will not have an assistant because the Pokémon he/she amasses over the course of the game will be the assistants.
Hiougi City is the Unova equivalent of NYC's ChinatownAdmittedly, I'm basing this on the design for the new protagonists and their rival. They appear to have more Asian features than Hilbert and Hilda, especially the Rival's face and the girl's hair.
Cipher has been involved the entire time.Think about it. Ghetsis' Hydreigon has perfect IVs and EVs. Want to know something interesting? Shadow Pokemon often have perfect or near perfect IVs and EVs. (These are lost when they are purified and then re-generated randomly.) The worst part? It wouldn't be hard nor out of character for Ghetsis to turn his Hydreigon into a shadow Pokemon. And considering that Cipher is located in Orre, which is the equivalent of Arizona, they would only be a few hours away. Cipher would certainly be interested in all of those "liberated" Pokemon, after all. And Ghetsis only cares about power, and lacks compassion, so he'd totally be on board with this. And they could have potentially been seeing each other for ages. Think about the implications of that.
There still won't be a Dark-type gym leader.It's practically a running gag in the games. Kind of like Flareon's lack of any good moves.
Kyurem was caught by Hilda/Hilbert, but escaped.Kyurem does have evidence in-game that it is a very aggressive pokémon, with legends saying that it eats both humans and other pokémon. So it probably didn't take being captured by some teenager and being forced into battle very well. What do you think a giant dragon is going to do when it's first sent out into battle? It would also explain why there's so many glaciers, Kyurem is taking revenge on humanity and intends to cause another ice age for it to happen.
We will find out what's up with the Abysmal RuinsHopefully...
There will be an Ice-type Elite 4 member/Champion.Hey, Johto had different members, so who knows. Maybe Brycen would've become an Elite 4 member/Champion in order to deal with the ice age caused by Kyurem.
There will 8 new gyms, and you'll face the original Unova gyms in the post-game.They did it in Johto.
reasons for why Unova got frozen, and what could happen.When you go to the cave Kyurem is in, it was able to basically flash freeze the whole darn field, trees included, into a big winter wonderland. The town nearby said it was trapped there, I think. What if the events of Team Plasma somehow made it able to escape? Due to it escaping, It froze half of Unova in revenge. The game basically starts with you beginning your journey, while this disaster is happening. Some of the towns have relocated underground, and the desert resort has become a last resort for living. One of the main plots could be N's return, in order to calm Kyurem down, while Team Plasma tries to control it and freeze all of Unova.
Team Rocket is the new Villainous TeamI was watching the new trailer, and, at 1:26, there are people in black uniforms, who look alot like Team Rocket, so, it's just what I figured.
Akuroma is the scientist who created GenosectCome on. Doesn't he look like the kind of guy who'd revive an ancient fossilized superpredator and amp it up with cybernetics and a Wave Motion Gun?
The suggested movie/Mecha Tyranitar will be this gen's equivelant of Pokemon contests.Giving the tradition, the next main game would be the Ruby/Sapphire remakes. Perhaps the movie theatre could serve as a version of the contests? Instead of said contests, you could compete to make an in-universe movie demo with your Pokemon. It would be a rather unique minigame...
Something really bad is going to happen during the course of the game.The Kyurem forms are the cover legendary's for the games of the same name (Black Kyurem for Black 2 and White Kyurem for White 2), unlike Black and White which had the opposite colored ones as the mascot (Zekrom for White and Reshiram for Black). Half the region freezing over is just the warning sign for the fact that cosmic balance has been disturbed.
The games will bear strong resemblance to Generation II, and will have two RegionsBlack and White were designed to strongly mirror Generation I in many, many ways. With Black 2 and White 2, some inspiration will come from Generation II. The primary effect will be that the games will have a second region. It is likely that this region will be a region that has been seen before. The most likely are Hoenn, the Sevii Islands, or Orre. Each of the three likely options have reasons justifying them.
Team Plasma has been split in two.We've seen two factions of them; the old grunts, one of the sages, and Anthea and Concordia, vs New grunts in soldier-like uniforms who have the Shadow Triad on their side. Group #1 is the original now reformed to be a legit organization dedicated to N's ideals and Pokemon rights. Group #2 is a new faction probably under the direct control of Ghetsis(Seeing as the Shadow Triad were loyal to him and him alone). They may or may not have cut the bullshit about trying to liberate Pokemon, and are basically Team Rocket's spiritual successors
Akuroma is running one of the two factions, Ghetsis the other.One official trailer video shows Akuroma in a room with a Team Plasma symbol on the floor. Plus his name isn't a tree, but means "colorless". Since all the other professors have been named after trees...he's obviously not a good guy. So if he's running one of the factions and Ghetsis the other, likely Ghetsis is running the original faction and Akuroma the breakoff. The reasoning is a line in the anime style trailer. "Team Plasma once said 'We realize the potential of Pokemon and it is best to free them from humans.' I, however, disagree with them." Thus Akuroma can't be running the original base faction. Since we know Ghetsis is back and a lot of the Team Plasma members aren't that bright, he's probably the one running the original faction (the "knights") and Akuroma is running the new faction (the "ninjas").
Black 2/White 2 will end up just being Part II of a Three-Part storySo the main story of Black 2/White 2 will end with even more Sequel Hooks than Black/White did . . . and setting up for Black 3/White 3 (or, alternately, Black 3D/White 3D). . .
Ghetis will have/use GenesectThink about it. Genesect was recreated by a Team Plasma scientist to be obcenely strong, and Ghetis would be the kind of person to abuse its power. He''ll use it in a plan to terrorize Unova to take control of the region. He'd either have it as one of his Pokemon if you battle him again, or you might have to actually encounter it like any other legendary. Calling it now!
Arceus caused the two brothers to split up, hence splitting apart the original dragon into the Tao Trio.Think about it: White/Black Kyurem has a BST of 700. That's stronger than Mewtwo. And this is just when it fuses with one of the two legendary dragons. The original dragon would have, going by this logic, a BST of 740. Or even more: that's better than Arceus itself. Naturally, such a being would frighten even the Creator, so it sowed the seeds of discontent that caused the brothers, and thus dragons, to split. For the same reason, this may be why you can't get all three legendary dragons in one game-Arceus is doing everything it can to prevent them ever recombining.
Speculation-Potential plot points/game mechanics for the possible third installment.
Ghetsis didn't actually pull a Dispair Event Horizon we though he hadAfter being transferred out of the cave, he eventually calmed down and instructed the Shadow Triad to spread the fake news that he got too disfunctional. While the Shadow Triad keep the player busy, Ghetsis cooks up a new plan......
It is, in fact, possible to catch Kyurem early in the gameWhen you first battle it, Ghetsis's staff prevents poke-balls from capturing it. To nullify its effect, have your Pokemon use Embargo or Magic Room.
In expansion of the Unova being a triologyB/W3 will be made in Gen VII.
The Striation Trio Memory Link was a case of Unreliable NarratorPeople can lie and fake memories.
The protagonists from Black and White 2 ARE the protagonists from Black and WhiteThe protagonist traveled back in time. Therefore, he was the hero that saved Unova. The reason he left the region is so that he wouldn't cause a Time Paradox. When his B 2 W 2 self goes back in time he will return to Unova.
The final completion of Kyurem will not involve Reshiram or ZekromThe black and white dragons were born in response to the wishes of two people, degenerated into stone when the people no longer needed them and only reawakened when confronted with a worthy individual. Maybe this isn't so much picky choosing by the two so much as they need a worthy trainer to make these things happen. Kyurem is similar, it only truly awakens in the presence of a worthy partner. The kidnapping, the eating, the assimilating, these are all just futile efforts to regain that high it once had after its mortal companion inevitably left or died. The other two are content to wait things out but why wouldn't they be. They used to only be one legendary capable of unifying a region, now they are two. If Reshiram and Zekrom never awoke again they can still say they've gone beyond what they once were. Kyurem can't.
Ghetsis' cane is the "completed" Colress MCHN technology.After you've defeated Ghetsis, he will leave his cane behind, planted in the ground. If you inspect it, the game will read "It's the cane that Ghetsis was holding. Was he controlling Kyurem with it?" Now, one wonders what special properties it would have to possess in order to control a Legendary Dragon like Kyurem. But now think about the Colress MCHN - it's only a prototype, but already it's capable of filling a nearby Pokemon with energy. However, Colress later gives it to the player and it eventually breaks after they use it on a Crustle. But what if Colress gave you his old prototype because he had already perfected the technology and had no more use for the Colress MCHN? And what if the perfected technology not only fills a Pokemon with energy, but allows the user to control that energy? Perhaps Colress managed to complete the energizing technology and then integrated it into Ghetsis' cane (in addition to the Pokeball jamming technology), and that's how Ghetsis was able to manipulate Kyurem. Just to support this WMG, consider how Colress' chamber of the Frigate is located right next to Kyurem's container. Being so close to Kyurem would have given Colress ample opportunity to experiment on it and collect data for his project.
Kyurem is the legendary dragon equivalent of cerebral palsyYin is feminine, Yang is masculine, the dragons represent both and were originally one. They were always separate entities actually and had only come together because that is how they reproduce. When the twins bickering forced the two apart, the two had not been together long enough to form an embryo but who says they are the only ones? Some other dragons successfully conceived but carelessly dropped the child, which created the giant chasm. One cannot expect a baby to develop too strong after such an impact without immediate medical treatment so Kyurem was abandoned by his parents, who felt they could not afford to raise a kid with disabilities. Kyurem managed to survive of course and now wants to make himself stronger at Zekrom or Reshiram's expense in order to win his parent's love. The combined form of Kyurem's parents will likely be the trio's currently absent master.
Complete Kyurem...Will wreck havoc once it completes it's assimilation mission.
If the game has a Battle Frontier, it will be on an in-game equivalent of Staten Island.It's the only borough that hasn't been used yet, and there's a real-life park of significant size there: the somewhat unfortunately-named Freshkills Park. Take the Grand Unova there and it'll fit in nicely.
Kyurem's different form changes its Dragon type to the secondary typing of the "color dragon."If you chose Black, it becomes an Ice/Electric. If you choose White, it becomes an Ice/Fire.
Kyurem's ability also changes when it colorizeTo pressure to Turboblaze for White kyurem or Terravolt for Black kyurem. It gets to learn fusion flare and bolt respectively, too.
Kyurem was originally a 3-head dragonThat splits into Black Kyurem, the 'Neutral' kyurem and White Kyurem, where the 'neutral' kyurem is the one we have in the original Black and White versions.
There will also be a fusion of Reshiram and ZekromPossibly even a Gray version, and even a Gray 2.
Pokemon exclusive to Black 2 and White 2 include:Black 2:
We will be able to face all three of the 1st Gym TripletsBut instead of six pokemon they will only use their signature ones giving the player some trouble with a strategy.
The Unova starters are unobtainable, and Black 2 and White 2 will each have a different set of starters from past gens.For example, Black 2 could have Treecko, Charmander and Piplup while White 2 could have Bulbasaur, Torchic and Totodile.
We will face both Drayden and Iris at the 8th gymExactly What It Says on the Tin
We will face neither Drayden and Iris at the 8th gymTake a Third Option we will have two completely new gym leaders a young man in White2 and an older woman in Black2.
The bag of spilling should this be a direct sequel.Remember one of the Plasma members in N's Castle, who mentions that they hacked the PC storage and would release every single Pokémon stored? Yeah...they do it to you, forcing you to start over with a starter.
A legendary Pokemon will be found in Challenger's CaveEither a new one or one of the three unreleased ones.
This game will have two different play slotsBecause, why not? This theory is farfetch'd, but the guess is that Black 2 and White 2 will have two "play" slots in each game, Black 2/Remake of Sapphire, White 2/Remake of Ruby. You'll be able to start off with either one of the games you choose first, to play either the Hoenn remake or the Black/White Sequel. Junichi Masuda did say he wanted to do something special with Hoenn.
We will get a whole new set of PokemonGold and Silver where originally called Pokemon 2 and they introduced a whole new set of Pokemon designed at the same time as the gen 1 mons
Regardless of the WMG above this game will try to invoke a gen 2 feelGold and Silver where originally called Pokemon 2
There wont be a legendary Pokemon in Challengers CaveBut when you bring a specific legendary (possibly event version) into it it will unlock the relevant legendaries
The upper right part of Unova will be completely revampedWith stuff added
When you trade Kyurem between Black 2 and White 2...Just like Deoxys in the Gen III games, White Kyurem will change to Black Kyurem when traded to Black 2 and vice versa when traded to White 2.
List of possible legendaries you could get via event items.
If Genesect can be fought, its battle theme will be Ghetsis' battle theme
The starters won't be Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott
There will be a handful of new PokemonMainly to connect some older Pokemon with their gen 5 counterparts
Regis will be catchable in wildI mean... Why not? In Gen IV they were the only non-Event Pokémon unavailable without either Pal Park or events , you either had to get event Regigigas or import them from Hoenn-based games.
Alternatively, the Lake Trio will be obtainable.If Dialga and Palkia are part of the plot, it wouldn't be surprising that the lake trio will appear to deal with it. They tried to play the Big Damn Heroes against the last guy who tried to toy with the Creation Trio. Wouldn't be surprised if they do this when Ghetsis tries to toy with the Creation Orbs(which, given the possible Sequel Hook in the last after-game, he probably will).
You will be capable of obtaining Dream World abilities without the Nintendo USB connection.Probably from Akuroma. To keep the "hidden" aura, it'll be a mini-challenge to obtain this.
A Drifblim that has its hidden Flare Boost ability and knows Explosion will appear on Thursdays in Mistralton City.Oh yes, I went there. Anyone who figures out this reference gets a cookie. EDIT: And guess who's just been seen in the CoroCoro scans? Drifblim. My WMG is now one step closer to happening. Oh the humanity!
In the post-game, you'll be able to capture Mewtwo.It would be pretty neat. Plus, it could showcase the Psytrike move.
The new Player Characters will both be able to swim without the aid of PokemonHeard this WMG from another site, but it makes total sense. Look close enough at their designs, and you'll see that they're really wearing wet suits under their clothes. They're already dressed as beach goers in the first place with the visors, but I foresee new artwork of them in just their wet suits showing them in or underwater.
There will be a new character that gets the other dragonExactly What It Says on the Tin
The Shadow Triad shall be revealed to be Cilan, Cress, and Chili.No Gen 5 WMG page is complete without this theory being mentioned at least once.
Alternatively, the Shadow Triad will be revealed to be O, P, and Q.As an extension to the "A through M" theory. To clarify, O will be a new character, not the guy from the anime.
Bianca will be the championWell.. Many people wanted that in the original and it'd show how much she's progressed.
Alternatively, Cheren will be the champion.As an extension to his Character Development.
We'll get a Previous Player-Character CameoIf it's a new protagonist expect the canon Pokémon Black and White protagonist, if you're still playing as the Tou. character's then expect a protagonist from a previous game all grown up (maybe the Pokemon Platinum protagonist considering Cynthia mentioned them in the previous title?}
You will get to fight Dawn/Lucas from the previous generation.It would be pretty cool, and it could be related to Ghetsis having the Orbs: he stole them, and Dawn/Lucas wants them back! The battle could go in one of two ways:
Cynthia and Red will be available for a Double BattleWhat's better/worse than fighting one of the few Bonus Boss trainers the series has had? Fighting both at the same time!
If there's a new player then they'll have a sibling or a fatherExactly What It Says on the Tin.
The player characters will be the same.If you choose to play as Hilbert, then Hilda will appear as the hero who befriended Reshiram/Zekrom and defeated N some time prior to the new games' events. And vice-versa. That would explain why the opposite gender character was Schrödinger's Player Character in Black and White, breaking the tradition set up back in Ruby and Sapphire: they couldn't play an important role yet, they will be the hero of the sequel.
Kris is going to appear as an NPCShe hasn't appeared since Crystal, so it will be nice to see her again in the later generations.
The new researcher will turn out to be a villain.Come on, just look at him. He screams villain. And with all the "Pokémon isn't about strength" we've been getting for years, it's at least strange to have a researcher who focuses his research solely on that.
Hilbert/Hilda will appear as an NPC several times to help the playerSince they are probably be the champion by now, they will probably aid you several times, just like Cynthia did in .
Akuroma made Kyurem-B/Kyurem-W, Genesect, or maybe both.This is expanding on the higher up WMG that he's a villain. In one of the CoroCoro screenshots, he's talking about an item which activates a Pokemon he created. Given that he researches Pokemon strength and his outfit has all of the Plasma logo's colors, it's not too hard to figure out the obvious suspects. If he is responsible for the Kyurem forms, then that would explain why they look so... unnatural.
The new additions to the Pokedex came from Orre.It's a region that had Trainers carrying Pokemon from earlier Generations. Perhaps their feral offspring finally made the long transcontinetal journey.
Akuroma will be a parody, critique, or deconstruction of Serious Business Pokemon meta-gamersIt's stated that Akuroma is researching Pokemon strength specifically, which is something of interest to most competitive Pokemon players. I wouldn't be surprised if, when you face him, Akuroma wielded exclusively OU Tier Pokemon with perfect IV's and Min-Maxed EV's.
The Poison type Gym Leader will be named Alice in the English localizationCome on, she plays the guitar, she uses the POISON type, that kind of reference would be too good to pass up.
Cheren will be the new ChampionMakes sense. It's been two years, no reason why he wouldn't be able to become strong enough to beat Alder in that time.
Bianca will be a gym leader
Volkner will show up.He was mentioned by Shauntal in BW and she seemed quite impressed by his battle abilities. It's never specified under which circumstances did they battle, maybe he challenged the Unova League? Maybe he'll show up in BW 2, as an Elite trainer or Champion even?
N will be the True Final BossIt'd make sense for Game Freak to save N for the very end of the game. The player character from the last game being the True Final Boss has already been done, and N was arguably the most important character in the last game. He'll probably also have taken a level in badass over the years.
All the same-gendered protagonists of the previous games will return as part of an underground Pokemon championship for people who have advanced beyond the Elite Four.They will all have Pokemon at levels no less than 80, and going all the way up to 100. If you choose the male protagonist, you'll fight Red, Ethan, Brendan, Lucas, and Hilbert. If you choose the female protagonist, you'll fight with Leaf, Lyra, May, Dawn, and Hilda. You'll fight them in reverse order, going back to the gen 1 protagonist. Red/Leaf will have a full team of level 100s.
You'll play as Hilbert/Hilda...But only in the beginning. You'll choose to play as either Hilbert or Hilda and then play as them for a little while, until Kyurem comes in and freezes you. Then you'll get to play as the new protagonist. Kinda like Metal Gear Solid 2, except it's a surprise that you'll play as the previous protagonist. Part of the story will involve defrosting them (along with some other major characters) so that they'll help you.
Bianca stole Cheren's glasses for some reason.
Cheren will be That One Boss.He's the normal-type gym leader, it's almost a given.
The past Champions and Gym Leader's sprites won't be anything newBecause Game Freak/Nintendo will get lazy.
You aren't actually facing off against any of the past Champions and Gym Leaders.Instead, you're actually facing off against holographic simulations of them. The AI is programmed to behave like them.
The "female" player character will be a crossdressing boy...at least for the JapaneseQuoting directly from Trap-Heaven's "Trapdex":
Elesa is a natural ravenShe dyed her hair blonde but decided to go back to natural.
Homika is a dude in dragGamefreak said it wanted to shake things up.
The (partial?) reason for Bianca's clumsiness in previous games was that she had vision problemsIt makes sense.
Chili will have his own Fire type GymThis is assuming he isn't part of the Shadow Triad. In one of the episodes of the anime he states that he wants to get stronger because he loses to so many trainers so he's considering branching off from the Striaton Gym and starting his own. The episode aired in Japan months ago but this kind of foreshadowing is not unheard of from the anime: There is also a kid named Luke who was introduced early on and is really into making movies. In retrospect it was a big hint we would get Pokewood.
The new protagonists are clones of the old onesThe names Black 2 and White 2 made me think of Mewtwo and Ambertwo. Plus, they look similar enough that some people thought they were Hilbert and Hilda in new clothes. As for why anyone would clone them? To steal their legendary dragon. And how? Well, Pokemon might be able to use some kind of time or growth-related attack to age them up to adolescence in less than ten years, and perhaps there's some kind of psychic Pokemon that can implant memories or knowledge in their mind.
Akuroma will be part of Ghetsis's Five-Bad Band.Assuming there would be enough members, that is. Either way, Akuroma could be The Starscream (his quote in the animated promo states that he disagrees with Team Plasma's beliefs, yet he was seen in a Team Plasma base of some sort), as well as The Evil Genius, because he's an Obviously Evil researcher.
Alternatively, Akuroma will be a standalone villain, OR he will oppose both the protagonist and Ghetsis.He did say he disagreed with Team Plasma's beliefs, after all. One could see him as The Chessmaster, he looks like the sort of villain to manipulate things behind the scenes. He could very well go up against Ghetsis, with Evil Versus Evil and the protagonist is caught in the middle trying to stop them both.
The new Team Plasma, or Neo Team Plasma, could have been influenced by Akuroma.Perhaps Akuroma noticed the fall of Team Plasma after the first games, confronted Ghetsis and helped him gather up a new Team Plasma, one that follows Ghetsis and HIS ideals. Akuroma's quote in the video could have been referring to the old Team Plasma.
Akuroma will, at some point, say the phrase..."Complete... global... SATURATION..."
Akuroma will be subject to Draco in Leather Pants.Because Wynaut.
Colress isn't entirely working for Team Plasma of his own free will. At least, not anymore.He may be aligned with Team Plasma to see how to best bring out the power of pokemon, but he repeatedly states that he disagrees with Team Plasma's ideas, and he helps out your character a lot. He even gives the player a way to get to the Plasma Frigate, and never really gets in his/her way, and in the postgame battle he says he despised Ghetsis from the start. Not to mention that his last battle theme has an intense yet sad feel to it, as though he doesn't want to fight you so much as he has to fight you. Even if Colress willingly worked with Team Plasma in the past, at some point he tried to leave but couldn't. Ghetsis is hanging something over Colress' head and forcing him to stay with Team Plasma and finish his work. His subtle aiding of the the player is like a cry for help.
What happened to the former Gym LeadersHere, you can add in your own speculations:
Akuroma (Achroma?) is N's Brother.Pretty self-explanatory. Similar looks, Ties to Plasma, etc. Or, alternatively:
Akuroma (Achroma?) is Ghetsis's actual son.And is seeking his father's goals in his own way, relying on strength and science to control the world, as opposed to cowing everyone through reliance on legends and mysticism.
Akuroma/Achroma/Colress is Ghetsis' brother.Ghetsis and Achroma don't look like they have enough of an age difference to be father and son. Plus they have some similarities in apperance, namely the Idiot Hair.
Sometime between Black and Black2, Iris took over Drayden's role as a Gym LeaderThen, in both versions, she eventually took on and won the league and became champion. Drayden, previously retired, retook his role as a Gym Leader once more.
Ghetsis killed Hilbert/HildaThey don't seem to be appearing in this game, despite the fact that everything they tried to prevent last game (two years ago) is happening all over again. So, my guess is, Ghetsis killed them so he wouldn't have any opposition, not that he counted on younger children rising up to beat his ass later.
You can battle Hilbert/Hilda via memory linkAnd their teams will be based on their latest Hall Of Fame members.
Ferris Wheel Shipping is canonAfter you defeat N in battle, N says he is going to look for the trainer from two years ago. If the player is female, it stands to believe they chose female in their last game, so, by choice of character, Ferrish Wheel Shipping is canon.
Volkner is the true Unova Champion.There is dialogue that strongly suggests Alder is a glorified stand-in asked to take the Unova Championship because the position was otherwise vacant. We also have Shauntal's comments about meeting Volkner before a match. It's not a stretch to assume Volkner is the missing Champion, having cleared the Unova League and moving on after he found it disappointing. Consider what we know about him from Diamond/Pearl/Platinum: He's the strongest Gym Leader in Sinnoh by quite a wide margin, so strong that he has resorted to blackout-causing shenanigans to chase away the boredom of his long-running winning streak, which is why he started handing out Badges in the first place. Someone (Flint, I think) even says he was about to make a run at the Sinnoh Elite Four to kill his boredom. He's so strong no one can challenge him until Dawn/Lucas comes along. The competition in Sinnoh presumably dried up again after D/P/P, and he quit his job as Gym Leader to travel the world and challenge other Leagues. Unfortunately for him, no one in Unova was tough enough to hold his interest, so he continued wandering the world in search of strong trainers until he caught wind of the World Tournament happening in Unova during Black 2 and White 2.
It is mandatory for Unova champions to wear sandalsThough it doesn't look clear what footwear Champion Iris is wearing.
Ghetsis is N's biological uncle/distant relativeMaternal uncle or second cousin, perhaps? It could make up for their Uncanny Family Resemblance, even though Junichi Masuda claimed N's birthparents to be unknown. Moreover, they do share part of the same surname...Ghetsis could've been estranged from the rest of their family, attempted cradlerobbing and later decided to take in N, raising him as his own son and effectively turning him into a tykebomb for his plans to take over the Unova Region in the previous installment.
Alternatively, Ghetsis really IS N's biological fatherN's mother died during childbirth. Ghetsis being an unfit parent, was forced to raise him alone. Having been injured in his youth in a wild Pokemon attack (hinted in an interview to be the cause behind his disfigured right arm and misplaced eye) and torn over the recent death of his wife, the sage grew cold, and became extremely aggitated when N started showing signs that he could actually talk to Pokemon. This infuriated Ghetsis so much to the point where he decided to abandon N in the wilderness. As Ghetsis' ambitions grew in his travels, it was only by chance that he was reunited with his lost son, years later. Finally realizing N's gift, Ghetsis took the boy back and sought to transform him into an important tool for his Pokemon "liberation" campaign. He adopted Anthea and Concordia to help him look after N, as he oversaw the construction of Team Plasma's castle while conspiring with the other Sages. This could also fit in with Ghetsis' overall bitterness toward N's talent, as detailed in his Villainous Breakdown at the Giant Chasm.
Kyohei and Mei's English names will be...] Nate and Nancy respectively. From "resonance/resonate"
There are actually two groups of Shadow Triad members.The first group, which was introduced in BW 1, actually consists of Cilan, Chili, and Cress. The reason why they didn't fight you in the first game was because they were afraid their battling styles/Pokemon might give them away, so they only served to bring you to N, Ghetsis, etc. After the events at N's Castle, Ghetsis told them never to find him again, because he was disappointed at their inability to help him conquer Unova. Between the Time Skip from BW 1 to BW 2, Ghetsis found himself a new, more aggressive shadow triad, which then showed up before the old shadow triad (Cilan, Chili, and so on)and defeated them soundly. Cilan doesn't tell you the whole truth because he doesn't want to be exposed as a shadow triad member, but also because he may have been traumatised that their Lord Ghetsis had abandoned them for another group of triplets.
The new protagonists are the old protagonists reborn.Throughout the game, especially if the Memory Link feature has been enabled, comparisons are drawn between the protagonist and the protagonist from the original versions. Some also seem to allude to a sudden disappearance of the original protagonist. It's unclear how, but maybe the protagonist of the new games are the old protagonists in new (younger) bodies. The Memory Link shows flashbacks to the events of their previous life, vaguely hinting towards how they disappeared and the impacts of doing so. In this way, Black 2 and White 2 become a reconnection quest of sorts, with the protagonist reclaiming relics and reliving the memories of the past.
There are two Shadow Triad'sThere are two Shadow Triads. Cilan and his brothers were the Triad, as implied in the original games. Ghetsis told them not to search for them and that's what they did. They stopped being the Shadow Triad. "Never shall we meet again" referred to you never seeing them as the Triad. Ghetsis found a new trio, which explains their personality shift and their design shift. The new Triad decided to beat the old Triad for whatever reason. That event, along with the brothers wanting to forget their past, caused them to focus on training themselves individually.
N is descended from the Abyssal KingThe carvings in the Abyssal Ruins speak of an ancient king who was kind, brave, fair, and universally loved by people and Pokémon alike. To be loved so deeply by both people and Pokémon suggests that he could approach both groups equally... thus, speak with Pokémon. Of course, this is spelled out more plainly in Black/White 2, where Zinzolin mentions that the King's gift may have been passed down to descendants. Throw in the parallels with N being the former "king" of Team Plasma, and... I'd say this one's a given.
N is really a PokemonIn the game it was revealed that N was found by Ghetsis as a child raised by Pokemon, the fact he can talk to Pokemon is amazing on it's own but... right after you become the champion you find a Zoroark in victory road whom you follow, it leads you to N's castle. N is waiting for you but the Zoroark is nowhere to be found, nor does N have it's Pokeball on him. So an interesting conclusion is that he IS a Zoroark which had been taking on human form, that explains why he can understand the Pokemon language
The Volcarona on Alder's team IS his starter PokemonSometime after the events of Black and White, Alder practiced necromancy and revived his starter Pokemon from the dead.
Hilbert/Hilda is dead and Nate/Rosa is their Nobody.Because why can't Nate/Rosa be Roxas? Maybe Kyurem froze Hilbert/Hilda along with the rest of Giant Chasm when they went near the pit/crater in the center, and everything else is Canon Discontinuity! Sure explains what happened to them and Reshiram/Zekrom. As for how it happened, it probably had something to do with Reshiram/Zekrom being with Hilbert/Hilda when they were frozen.
Cheren became Alder's student between BW and BW 2They seemed to have a connection, considering Alder reminded him of him when he was younger. Also, you meet Alder in Flocessy Town in this game, and we assume that's where he lives. And Cheren became a new gym leader in Aspertia City, just across the road. Since Cheren was probably living in Flocessy Town before, it makes sense that his new job is close to where he was before.
Colress is Asexual.He's so interested in science, that's pretty much his main interest in life. He never really had time for romance or whatever, because after all, why romance when you can study a science behind Pokémon? His Pokémon are mostly genderless because he associates with machines and genderless Pokémon more easily than with humans. Sanity Slippage). There are two distinct possibilities on how he lost it: the first is frostbite from dealing with dealing with Kyurem. The second, and probably more likely, was Hydreigon tearing it off-Hydreigon knows Frustration, which is more powerful depending on how much the user hates the trainer. Hydreigon being significantly weaker could also have been an attempt to control him.
Curtis/Christoph and N are related.Oh come on now, Both have green hair, (Although the former's is a much lighter variant) and the female PC (Hilda/Rosa) rides the Ferris wheel with them at one point!
To go with the above theory, Yancy/Nancy and Anthea are relatives too.Both have pink hair.
The special trailer is a "testing ground" to gauge audience reaction, similar to the April Fool's Day revival of Toonami.Because fans have been clamoring for a Periphery Demographic-friendly anime based more closely on the games for years, The Pokemon Company decided to release exactly that, albeit as a 7-minute trailer. Based on audience reaction, they may expand the project.
The game will not make it to US shoresI know it has been set for a release date, but Ghetsis tries to murder you here. Either a rating bump is necessary or the game may not make it.
N will die in a Heroic SacrificeHe and the player will go in Ghetsis's base to stop the evil plan, but some will go wrong. relizing it is the only way to save the day N will die to stop Ghetsis, resulting in his Villainous Breakdown, allowing the player to finish the stoping the plan. I don't think they would really do this but it would be in charater and a surpising plot twist
The brothers were originally the Shadow Triad but it was changed somewhere in BW 2's developmentThe Memory Link felt like a Hand Wave and concept art for the Triad shows them with hair that was vaguely similar to the brothers, along with similar builds.
The Timespace Orbs was Ghetsis' backup plan.If he couldn't just freeze everything over to take over Unova, he could have just recreated the world as he saw fit. For someone like Ghetsis, he'd probably plan very carefully. On the plus side for him, recreating the entire universe like Cyrus intended to would make almost every single Pokemon under his control. Too bad he didn't think ahead in the first game, and just had the Shadow Triad give it back to the player.
Ghetsis never intended to surrender the orbs.This theory presumes the "Two different Shadow Triads" theory in the Character section, but does not require the first one to be the Straiton Triplets. Seeing what happened at the Castle perhaps gave the (first) Triad a notion of what Ghetsis would do if he still possessed the orbs. What they reported to the (B1W1) Player about Ghetsis dismissing them was probably a Half Truth, said Triad having an idea just what Ghetsis's reaction would be.
These two games were created instead of Pokemon Gray because Game Freak didn't want to merge the old-timey and futuristic Opelucid cities into a balanced modern version
