As Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 are new games in the middle of the generation, there are certain levels of compatibility between the various Pokémon games. This page is to detail the compatibility with the various Pokémon games with which the games are compatibile.
|Pokémon Black & White|
Accessed After: Earning the first badge
As Pokémon Black & White are part of the same generation as Pokémon Black 2 & White 2, it features the most compatibility with the games. This compatibility opens up after you have earned the first badge and have received the C-Gear. Not all of the features of Pokémon Black & White can be done on Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 however. Below is a list of the features and whether or not they work
|Pokémon Dream Radar|
Accessed After: Obtaining the Pokédex
Pokémon Dream Radar is a 3DS game that was released to tie in with Pokémon Black 2 & White 2. This game allows for the capture of Pokémon and obtaining of items, which can then be sent to Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 using the Unova Link feature. First send the Pokémon to the DS games in the 3DS game, then receive them in the Unova Link. They will get placed directly into the Storage Box.
The levels of the Pokémon scale based upon the amount of badges you have got scaling from Level 5 at the start of the game, all the way up to Level 60 if you have defeated the champion.
|Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold & SoulSilver|
Accessed After: Defeating the Champion
Like in Pokémon Black & White, there is full compatibility to allow for the transfer of Pokémon from the Generation IV games. This is done through the PokéTransfer feature, in the building located in Route 15. Like in Black & White, this is done via a mini-game where you have to use a bow to shoot PokéBalls at the transferrable Pokémon.
There are various restrictions to this however. Items are removed from all Pokémon and put in the Generation IV bag. You also cannot transfer Pokémon who know any of the game's HM moves or the special Spiky-eared Pichu from HeartGold/SoulSilver.
