no edit summary
* The player no longer starts in [[Nuvema Town]], instead starting in [[Aspertia City]].
* Instead of the usual 5 [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}}s, the player is given 10 at the start of his or her journey.
* [[Chili]], [[Cress]], [[Cilan]]; [[Lenora]] and [[Brycen]] are replaced by [[Cheren]], [[Roxie]] and [[Marlon]] as Gym Leaders, respectively.
* [[Bianca]] gives the player a [[starter Pokémon]] in Aspertia City.
* A new [[Team Plasma]] has formed, and is run by [[Colress]], who battles the player frequently throughout the story. [[Ghetsis]] is once again the secret mastermind behind the Team, now planning to freeze Unova with Kyurem.
* [[Rood]], [[Zinzolin]], and the [[Shadow Triad]] are battled as part of the story.
* The Gym Leader order has changed to Cheren, Roxie, Burgh, Elesa, Clay, Skyla, Drayden, Marlon.
* [[Alder]] is replaced by [[Iris]] as the {{pkmn|Champion}} of Unova.
* The user-facing camera can be used during [[Xtransceiver]] communications with other players.
* The [[C-Gear]] shows the system power using three bars in a battery icon, rather than two on older Nintendo DS systems.
* The game icon is animated when viewed on the Nintendo DSi or 3DS home screen—the [[{{i|Poké Ball]]}} inside the icon wiggles.
* Japanese versions of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 are region-locked, so can only be played on Japanese-region [[Nintendo DSi]] and [[Nintendo 3DS]] systems; however, because the [[Nintendo DS]] and [[Nintendo DS Lite|DS Lite]] do not support region-locking, they can be played on these systems regardless of region. The Korean and Western language releases are not region-locked, so can be played on any Nintendo DS or 3DS system regardless of region.
