PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

The Pokédex consists of Pokémon introduced in gen 5. Does that mean that only gen 5 Pokémon appear in the games? There’s white forest, but is that the only way to get any gen 1-4 Pokémon?

Yeah, I’d go for B/W 2 if you’re after variety. I don’t like them as much as the originals, but they have a really cool dex.

Unfortunately, yes. Pokémon BW is one of the only games that consist of only Pokémons of their own Generation, before the League, at least.
Once you beat the League, you get to explore new locations in Unova, and these locations have Pokémons belonging to other Generations (1-4). They are grouped in the National Dex, not in the Regional Dex.
