We don't know about the transfer features yet. In BW2, you had access to a large amount of Pokemon, especially considering Dream World. Being able to trade online helps a lot as well, but the simple answer is no, you won't be able to catch them all with a single cart.

Hate to be the defence force here, but Serebii did actually buy and import a legit copy of Black. He posted an image of it a day or two later.

He downloaded it to start work on his site. Yeah, he fucked up, but it's not quite the heinous crime some of you are painting it as.

in BW & BW2 i was constantly switching new Pokemon in, and my team was always 6 deep.

Yes, you should be able to have them all through trading/transferring from previous gens. Though from the original RBY games to the newest ones? No.

I'm just laughing at his slip-up. Obviously he need that content ASAP and has copies on the way ASAP too.

It's easy to hate Serebii though, with the way he often comes off. Some of the threads on GameFAQs where he goes in and tries to defend himself have been hilarious over the years. Bringing up Bulbapedia in front of him, or telling him Serebii.net's site design is terrible may cause him to combust on the spot.

Looks pretty good to me. I'm glad it's getting a simultaneous release because i couldn't resist spoiling myself when black and white came out in Japan. So this game will have more surprises for me.

Also, I mean "old", because now all Pokémon from Gen I to V, are considered like that.

And no, I noticed audino, too. It just wasn't interesting cuz it wasn't a new pokemon and audino sucks aside from giving you EXP.

I still prefer the look of gen 3. It was way faster and snappier too. Everything about the package/presentation was great, troubles were elsewhere.

I know its an unpopular opinion but its the perfect blend of new and old. I wasnt overly fond of the almost isometric view the DS games had.

yesss

felt so good going to the Pokemon League with a full set. I've never done that before 5th gen. I rocked a Samurott, Leavanny, Galvantula, Bisharp, Gigalith and a Scrafty in Black 1.

Oh man, the second new Pokémon reveals (apart from the starters and maybe the movie mascots as I don't see how I can avoid them) happen, I'm on media blackout until October.

It's finally here! BW were such a disappointment to me I never even got into any of the post game stuff. No event legendaries, no dream world, none of the download items. Needless to say I never bothered with BW2.

Bring it!

So, taking a guess...
January Coro Coro: Clarifications on the starters (classifications, heights, weights, etc), maybe some info about the Legendaries.
February Coro Coro: Mascot for the Genesect movie, potential second Pokemon/ Eeveelution.
March Coro Coro: More general game info, start of a steady drip of Pokemon reveals.

Life is so much better when new Pokemon games are coming.

Chespin has probably something to do with chestnuts and spin? Spin, because it may spin while it digs.
Fennekin is obviously fennec and... kin?

I'm seeing a heavy Gen I & II slant in this...

In my opinion, all starters are good, but Torchic, Totodile, Oshawott and Chespin rise above the rest.

You can get through the entire game raising a Starter + 1 Pokemon. Pretty sure I beat Pokemon Blue version with my Charizard who had: Slash, Ember, Flamethrower, Fire Spin.
