A rather generous move by Game Freak was to put the expansive games Pokémon Black Version 2 and White Version 2 on the DS, which pretty much used up all the data a DS could handle. The game isn't laggy, it looks polished, and the story is engaging. It takes the elements of the story of Version 1 and molds it into something new, with added effort to not just make it another Pokémon Game. All characters now move at the beginning of a battle, and even all 500+ Pokémon are well animated.
Violence is present, but it is in no way depicted graphically.
A character tries to 'freeze' the player using the move Glaciate, but players may know that the move does not freeze, but in fact causes damage, and this can be interpreted as trying to impale and kill the player.
There are many good role models in the game, and former bad guys try to put things right.
