Pokémon Black and White

Recommended Posts

From this point on, feel free to chat or discuss about anything relating to the Pokémon Black/White games or anything correlating to them. Discuss anything in range from ‘Happenings’ to ‘Teams’ to ‘Questions’ or anything in general to the Black and White series/games.

 

This thread shall also prevent any further mishap of creating useless threads and overwhelming the Video Game section with any new Pokémon outbreak. One active thread is enough as it is. Talk it over in here instead.

Shiny new thread for soon-to-get shiny new games. xd.png

 

I won't be getting it right on release and don't have either of them pre-ordered, but I might get it next week. I have no idea which version I'd get though, been flip-flopping between them for a while.

I think I'm going to play White "normally" again, getting mons from early-ish in the game to make my team...

 

So probably:

 

Tepig

Lillipup

Woobat

Roggenrola

Tympole

Scraggy

Yamask (since I like having teams of 7. tongue.gif)

 

Black will be trades...

*pokes new thread* I like! happy.gif Oh, and I decided to get Black, since I can just trade for all of White's exclusives over Wifi.

(...And I've spent the last few months doing a whole lotta collecting and trading, so I'm kinda burnt out on that for now.)

 

I can still brag about my awesome accomplishment though. cool.gif Yes, my fellow Pokemanics, I have caught them all!

...For the next three days, anyway. laugh.gif

@Katt. Completely legit? No hacks or any use of device? Congrats.

 

I should probably follow your idea and complete either my Platinum or HeartGold just to pass the time until B/W. laugh.gif

That makes two of us. I've caught all 493 without cheating on my Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver versions; but at the cost of many jokes and comments from my family. rolleyes.gif Now all I need is Black and White so I can try to complete them.

I ended up getting black over white, as 1) black city is cool and 2) reshiram is prettier than zekrom in my opinion. However, I feel so cheated about the in-game available pokemon D:< Them dang white versioners get an adorable eagle and a cute embryo-thing, whereas -I- am stuck with an exceptionally ugly vulture and a creepy gothic loli thing. Gah!

is it true that you can use WPA if you want to trade?

The DS only works with WEP security, as do the pokemon games, so no, you cannot trade with WPA security. :/ Which is a really big fail on Nintendo's part.

 

I can't wait till Sunday to get White and then get the Victini event thingy...Victini is sooo cute <3 How long does the Victini event last?

 

I hacked my Pearl version to get the complete Pokedex :U I'm working on completing my SoulSilver pokedex without a hack though. |D

Yeah, the DS doesn't work with WPA, but, from what I've heard, the 3DS does, so I'm hoping that the 3DS (once I get one) will allow me to connect to my WPA router with original DS games.

Yeah, almost all of them are legit trades from GBA games, or hunted down in Diamond. happy.gif

I have over 400 trades on the back of my HG's Trainer card, just from trading with myself.

 

Hacks:

Shaymin, because I missed the event and found someone with an AR. Lugia, because I needed it on Sapphire, and Gale of Darkness wasn't out at that time. And Kyogre, because I was a noob and didn't want to wait to find out what happened next in the story...so I killed the one that was in my game. laugh.gif That was before I even seriously considered completing the 'Dex. Oh, and Deoxys too.

 

I think HG has Kyogre, and it obviously has Lugia. I'm just too lazy to go get them.

The rest is just a waiting game, 'cause the legendaries are always repeated for a new generation; it just takes a few years.

@Gamekatt: D: I hate you sooo muuuch just kidding tongue.gif

 

I'm almost finished with my pokedex too, but I still need deoxys, celebi, and arceus. I'll probably never get them, though.

 

I wasn't going to get a 3DS, but if it's compatable with WPA, I miiiiiiiiight get one. Maybe.

 

@Kamak: 7?? I'm way too lazy to raise more than 6 peokemon at once xd.png I usually have teams of 4, but with these games I'll likely have a team of 5 or 6.

Celebi is still at Gamestop until the 6th, so you should go get one. happy.gif I'm pretty sure it's the same one that was being handed out at the Tour, right down to the ID and OT numbers.

I figured I'd drop this link here for anyone interested in some of the more minor details of the games that I covered when I ran through the games in September... might give you guys more reason to angst about the lack of the games some added info that was glossed over by the big sites and some stuff that may help get us excited about the games a bit more (not that we need it. tongue.gif)

 

EDIT: forgot the link... *facepalms*

Hm. New thread. For a second I was worried that the old thread would be deleted. So many memories and posts put into that thread. XD It will of course be deleted eventually, but y'know. I didn't want it to be sudden.

 

I've been thinking about my team lately. It's really, really hard, since there are SO MANY Pokemon I want to train and battle with. QwQ So I've made a list, separating the Pokemon by type (since I hate having two Pokemon of the same type in my team).

 

WARNING: GIGANTIC LIST Bahaha that's so huge and it took forever to make.

Can't wait! I've been looking forward to this for a long time (like many others), and of course my collector's side is looking forward to the figures from Gamestop... but is also dissatisfied because Toys R Us is giving out wall clings. Grrr can't get em all D=

From the moment you befriend your first Pokemon at the start of Pokemon Black, everything is reassuringly familiar: the scientist who sends you out on your adventure, your first encounter with bumbling bad guys Team Plasma, and the stories of a legendary Pokemon that will either save or destroy the world. Some tweaks have been made to the visuals and online functions, and a couple of new battle types have been introduced, but these changes are so small as to be insignificant compared to what Pokemon Black borrows from previous games in the series. Original it isn't; yet despite the formulaic nature of your journey and a disappointing storyline, the engrossing battle system makes fighting and catching one of the many new Pokemon as addictive an experience as ever, and it's lots of fun too. There's plenty of time to catch 'em all as well, with a vast world to explore and tons of side quests and postgame content that's a pleasure to play through.

 

*eye twitch*

 

The fact that these games have been rated less than ALL Gen 4 games is a slap in the face to the series. It's also stupid that the didn't even get Cheren's name right... And they downplay all of the improvements as being "too minor" is just... what...

 

I really don't know why I keep hoping for a more impartial review from GS when it's very clear what console they cater to... But it's just... the same things they censorkip.gif* about in Pokemon they love about series like Halo and Final Fantasy... I can see having differing opinions, and I don't expect them to just love Pokemon because I do... But at least rate games on a consistent basis...

 

It's just... erg...

*Eye twitches as well*

 

Those games actually add some pretty neat and far from insignificant features.

"Minor" tweaks? That, I see, is as an understatement, IMO.

 

I say GS is just tired will all the Pokemon crap and think the series should die already. xd.png

because they gave it an 7.5 (which is still pretty good mind you) Gamespot sucks? this just means two things

 

one) pokemon has a very high standard

two)the rating system is censorkip.gif up when a 7.5 is considered bad

 

its not like they said it was horrible or anything

 

anyways cant wait till sunday.

Not a bad score. But lower than I think it should be. :P Meh. It's just one site.
