I loved breeding my Pokemon. A rattata that knows Flame Wheel? Sure thing! Mixing and matching egg moves with natures was awesome. Now it will be even easier, with everstones allowing the transfer of natures between either parent and the child Pokemon.

I could’ve sworn there was something similar to this in previous games, though.

Anyway, there is a negative, hence the unassuming nature of the title. You will no longer be able to breed Pokemon until after you champion the elite four. Then, you unlock Route 3, and there it is, for all of your ditto abusive pleasure. Surely I’ll be getting back into the swing of it when I get Pokemon Black and White 2, which comes out on September 7th in the US.
