The games take place two years after the events of {{game|Black and White|s}}. Many changes have taken place in [[Unova]] over this period: new locations are accessible in the southwest and northeast of the region, and some previously existing locations cannot be visited or are restricted until later in the game. Three new [[Gym Leader]]s and a new {{pkmn|Champion}} are introduced, while the [[List of Pokémon by Unova Pokédex number|Unova Pokédex]] is [[List of Pokémon by New Unova Pokédex number (Black 2 and White 2)|expanded]] to include Pokémon that are foreign to the region, much like in {{game|Platinum}}.
The {{player}}—named, by default, {{ga|Nate}} if male or {{ga|Rosa}} if female—begins in the southwestern city [[Aspertia City]]. After receiving their [[starter Pokémon|first Pokémon]] from [[Professor Juniper]]'s assistant [[Bianca]], they are encouraged to battle in [[Gym|Pokémon Gyms]] and aim for the {{un|Pokémon League}}. A boy from the player's hometown, [[Hugh]], will travel with the player at certain times. Though filling the traditional [[rival]] role, Hugh is not pursuing the Pokémon League challenge: it is revealed that he is trying to recover a stolen Pokémon from [[Team Plasma]], who were not disbanded two years prior as expected.
