HELLO, BONJOUR, GUTEN TAG, नमस्कार, ハロー, Привет, 你好, ہیلو שלום AND HOLA!

As those of you who frequent this board and fans of Pokemon already know, this Sunday marks the American release of the fifth generation of Pokemon, BLACK AND WHITE! For many this will be another installment in a long line of game purchases and will be like a visit from an old friend with new gifts. But for some? For some this is their first foray into a 15 year old franchise.

SO! LET THIS THREAD BE A PRIMER AND SOUND OFF THREAD FOR ALL!

To start us off, a handy youtube video that with the aid of music and large Sumagori illustrations will make learning the English names of all the pokemon easier.

The biggest new feature that you'll encounter is THE DREAM WORLD!

Made possible through the Global Link Website (the American version of which won't go up till later this month so as to set up the proper servers since the Japanese version crashed in a big damn hurry) The Pokemon Dreamworld will be how you get your hands on not only Pokemon from older generations but ones with abilities they never had before now! For example, Always wanted to use a Tyranitar but felt it was too bothersome to build a team around it's sandstorm ability? Now you can get one with "Unnerve", which makes it so your opponent can't use berries!

You'll only be able to access this feature for an hour every day but for that hour you'll be able to send one of your Pokemon out and have them hang out in their own private little house you design for them, farm berries, and best of all Befriend Pokemon that you can bring back to the cartridge if you have enough dream points.

That's right, a six on six throwdown is the new item on the battle menu, and it's got whole new rules for you to learn.

First rule is playing the angles, Pokemon directly in front of you will receive full damage from attacks, while Pokemon at an angle from where you attack will only receive partial damage. Those attacks that affected everyone on the field will still do so unless your partner Pokemon possesses a typing immunity, or has an ability like Telepathy that prevents team attacks.

Also this brings into play COMBO MOVES, two examples of which are the OATH moves and "Sing A Round" (it has a couple of names right now, not sure which is the right one)

Sing A Round, when chosen by all team mates will, regardless of speed, have all the pokemon attack their chosen targets one right after the other and in fact increase the damage output of the attack with each successive hit meaning damage increase from pokemon A to B to C.

And the Oath Moves (Fire, Water, Grass) will, when 2 of them are used successively will actually create a field effect. For example Fire and Grass oath create a field of flame where opponents take 1/8 max HP damage each turn.

OH! And a special note I almost forgot, damage inducing flying type moves can hit anyone anywhere on the field.

Now, while you CAN move Pokemon around in the triple battle, it'll cost you a precious turn.

IN A ROTATION BATTLE, THIS IS NOT THE CASE!

In a Rotation Battle, what you will find is that while you send out 3 Pokemon, it's still a one on one match where you can rotate in an active pokemon and attack all in the same turn. But be wary, your opponent will also be able to do the same! You may think you're hitting that Gyarados with a Thunderbolt, but NOPE, IT'S THAT ELECTIVIRE AND HE JUST GOT A SPEED BOOST!

THE XTRANSCEIVER: A key item in the game that lets up to 4 players communicate with one another using the built in mic (Or Camera if you have one), but since it's only Local Wireless I personally don't see myself using it.

ENTRALINK: An in game forest where you catch the pokemon you meet in the Dream World and where you can hang out with fellow players alla Sinnoh's underground, but this time you get MULTIPLAYER MISSIONS

SEASONS: Every month is a different season in Unova, cycling through them just like we do in the real world, these season can affect the availability of certain pokemon and also create or block paths on the overworld!
-Springtime weather appears in January, May, and September. Certain areas may have rainy weather.
- Summer weather appears in February, June, and October. Morning begins one hour earlier, at 3:00 AM, while Day lasts an hour longer, until 8:59 PM.
- Autumn weather appears in March, July, and November.
- Winter weather appears in April, August, and December. Morning begins one hour later, at 5:00 AM, while Day lasts an hour shorter, until 6:59 PM. Due to snow piling up, certain areas can be accessed that are normally inaccessible.

Some off you are either totally out of practice or are totally new to the game so from here on I'll include some important basics.

Like for example, THE TYPE CHART!

And since some of you find the internet terrifying and dare not venture to deep therin, have some important site links

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Main_Page (Your standard enormous well made wiki)

http://www.serebii.net/index2.shtml (A less standard, less flair excellent resource)

I happily welcome all applicable participants into this, the 15th year of Pokemon's lifespan.

TO OLD PLAYERS
Welcome back, it's been a few years since we've had a brand new experience, leave us hope that the old familiar trappings don't dull all the new coming our way

TO NEW PLAYERS
You couldn't have picked a better time to hop in, this is after all 15 years of refined competitive game play now with more variety in other players than ever before, you're gonna be in for a wild ride but there will be no shortage of people out there to point you in the right direction. On top of the jackasses of course, but what long lasting fandom doesn't have those? ... Maybe stamp collecting?

It still gets Smack Down, which is super-effective against Elesa's two Emolga.The move also nullifies the Not-related-to-Pachirisu-disappointment's Flying-type to Ground-type moves.

Money seems to be easier to come by, too. Even before I started abusing my Amulet Coin, I didn't have to worry about being able to keep myself stocked with Potions and Revives.

Still, I agree that the game feels like it's gotten harder. Even having all the recovery items I need, it's harder. I'm not even sure if it's the levels as much as it is the stats--fighting Pokemon the same level as me who don't have type advantage, I still see them regularly being able to two-shot me.

I concur. I noticed from the very beginning it seemed like a pain in the ass to do a damn thing. I think there's a steeper learning curve to this gen.

So I'm probably going to just hack halfway decent stats onto Zekrom. Catching 726 individual Pokémon before finishing the main game? Fuck that noise.

Let's hope Grey goes the Emerald/Platinum route with Unova's mascot legendaries. Even if we're forced to capture Kyurem, at least we'll have BW to fall back on.

As if I use Ubers anyway.
>> No. 19317
>>19316
There are a few pieces of evidence to support the idea that Kyurem will have at least one alternate form come Gray. Namely two moves they found while inspecting the data that are supposedly linked to him (or at least, all three of Kyurem, Zekrom, and Reshiram), yet no one can actually learn them yet.
>> No. 19318
>>19316
Everyone knows Ubers are just trophy Pokemon anyway.

Every time I hear about this game it just sounds more and more fantastic. I might just break down and buy it when my leg heals and splurge on Grey when it comes out.

>>19314
>Wow, is it just me or is some of the NPC dialogue a lot more amusing this time around?
I've noticed that, too. There have been some lines from random trainers that actually got a chuckle out of me. I can't recall a specific one, but it seems like there were a few that got honest-to-goodness laughs.

And there's a lot more characterization this time all around. The two rivals both get a bunch and so far it seems like every gym leader I've come to has had at least a mini-arc that lets you know who they are before moving on to the next gym.

I'm only halfway through and I'm already just about ready to call this generation the best one yet.
>> No. 19322
Is it true they got rid of things like gym leader rematches?
>> No. 19323

Depends on what you mean by "got rid of"; so far gym leader rematches have only been available in re-releases or remakes. The same with the Battle Frontier.

I tend to agree about every point here. The box system feels all sorts of wrong now after the very streamlined version of SS/HG.
I think the thing that most immediately bothers me is not being able to fish. They give you surf... and virtually NO FREAKING WAY to teach it to any pokemon. There are like 2 water types tops before you can surf, and both of those are types you don't really want to bog down with HM moves. (and of course, one of them is a damn starter.)
The Xtransceiver really does feel really useless (well, pretty much the entire CGear feels useless) since you can't make any calls.

Which ones are you not wanting to "bog down" with Surf? Surf is the best water move for all of the pre-fishing Water-types I've looked at except for Carracosta and Basculin. I suppose a case could be made for Scald because of the Burn effect, or Aqua Jet if you're wanting to use Priority moves, but Surf is definitely the best option for damage-dealing moves other than Water Spout. And Frillish is the only Gen 5 Pokemon that learns Water Spout.

That's okay, those guys are very late game Pokemon, anyways.

Carracosta essentially. You can't catch a Basculin until you can surf, but you can trade for one... But I really just don't like using a traded pokemon. (a personal peeve ust for me)

But yeah, The only two water types I encountered before I traded for that Basculin was Oshawott and Carracosta (and I didn't pick Oshawott). Normally I don't mind using Surf, but... I just really liked the moveset my Carracosta has.

>> No. 19379
Yeah, the encounter rate is pretty crazy. I wish they had gone with a lower encounter rate and longer dungeons, since the number of encounters seems to just barely be keeping me at the same level as the trainers and gyms I'm encountering. If they could just make it to where I can go the same number of battles between gyms without having to get in a random battle every step, that would be wonderful.

That's where you get localized workers to keep an eye on playerbase in various groupings. Then those workers, report to whomever sends feedback to their main location. It doesn't seem like something too hard for them.

These are just some ideas I have regarding how they could gauge player feedback, and get new ideas for future products.

Due to classes, Cracked.com, and Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines, I'm still not very far in Black (just passed Gym 2 and am running around the woods now). Having said that, I can say that Team Plasma is making great strides in being the Pokemon villains least possible to take seriously. Impressive, given that I'm still not sure Aqua and Magma weren't just traveling comedy acts.

>We will save the Pokemon!
>How?
>LET'S KICK THE SHIT OUT OF THIS ONE AND HYPNOTIZE SMALL CHILDREN WITH IT! HURR

And yeah the encounter rate is a little bit high. On the other hand, maybe I'm crazy but experience gain seems to have gone way up since my last experience with these games. I'm gaining levels left and right like crazy.

I'm not really worrying about min-maxing or builds right now (not that I ever have, since I've never played multiplayer in Pokemon in my life), and am just running through the single player with my usual tricks (also known as "extreme laziness" and "the first shit I caught, with a few substitutes based on what's necessary/random whims").

I'll worry about all this metagaming crap after I've actually seen the game.
>> No. 19443
>>19440
That's basically how I'm doing it for now, too. I'm metagaming a little, in the sense of making sure I cover most of the bases, type-wise, and when I notice that a Pokemon is doing pretty poorly on the stats (i.e. always going last even against things it's ten levels ahead of, not even managing to 2HKO Pokemon it's got a type advantage against, etc.), I start looking for a replacement. But I haven't learned which Pokemon are in which tiers or the like yet and probably won't bother until the post-game.

Rivalry was better in PvP last gen because people generally made team Pokemon male whenever possible because it let them re-use unique TMs through breeding; now that all TMs are infinite use is doesn't happen nearly as much.

Which I'm fine with some Pokemon being.

This is at least partially because the first one I saw came utterly, ridiculously close to sweeping my entire team (literally, if it's last attacked hadn't missed because of Leaf Tornado lowering it's accuracy the turn before it would have won).

just go to the area with the highest leveled wild pokemon you can access (and you can beat them too) and then make sure the pokemon you are using is holding the item "Lucky Egg" cuz its boosts the exp you get. thats what i do and i have a lvl 57 victini, lvl 53 Emboar, lvl 52 Goblet and lvl 52 Throh and i just got to route 10 lol (also have my new lvl 43 Thunderous) :)

Alright, I have a question about team Plasma, what are they up to in this game? What are their goals? How are they accomplishing them?

And are musicals any fun? I like playing contests.
>> No. 19688
In regards to team plasma you just need to play the game and find out. they tell you pretty quick what they want so you should figure out their overall goals quick (the good parts come later though) And for the musical things i cant help ya there cuz i have yet to try it. not something im really interested in to be honest. wasnt really into contests so idk
>> No. 19689
>>19687
The musicals are completely and utterly useless.
You dress your poke up and then watch it rotate awkwardly on stage for a minute
>> No. 19691
Fighting the Elite Four and so far its pretty easy. Using Victini to one shot all of the fighting type guys pokemon. next target is the ghost guy, then psychic, and saving dark for last since he will probally be my hardest due to Victini being part psychic (trying to beat them with just one pokemon lol)
>> No. 19693

Darn, I always thought that contests were interesting and kinda cool. And I kinda always wondered what attacks would look good together if there was a battle round.

I heard that Team Plasma = PETA; and want to free everyones pokemon. But then what I have heard about N and the sages don't add up.
>> No. 19695
>>19693
I'm not very far in, but from what I've seen they really are like PETA in that they always seem to be smacking Pokemon around unnecessarily despite pretending to want to help them. Considering that PETA ends up euthanizing 94% of the dogs and cats they take in, though, Plasma better seriously get their asses in gear if they want to be the most evil of all. I mean, beaten by a real organization? That would be just shameful.

On a slightly related note, I think one of the grunts claiming that I was just jealous of their sweet outfits after I beat them was the first time I laughed at a Pokemon game.

When the player enters the city for the very first time, the total number of residents is determined by the number of days it took the player to reach Black City. The number of residents can vary between 12 (minimum occupancy) and 45 (maximum occupancy). In addition to the visual changes, the city's market will sell a different item to the player.

>>20489
Okay, I had this problem too. It is still fixable. If you have a netgear router it as easy as changing a setting. It is probably fixable with other types of routers too, but I know how it works with netgear. Make sure you are only using WEP encryption (or no encryption if you fly that way) go to wireless settings, mode and change it too "up to 150mbps b/g/n mixed mode". the mixed mode is the important part of that if you can't find an exact match. most routers come with a setting that make them compatible with older wifi equipment. oddly the nintendo help page did nothing but i searched "nintendo" on the router's help page and it knew exactly what to do. hope this works for you.

How many people there are in Black City/White Forest depends on how fast you get there from the beginning of the game. You basically have to speed run the game to get all 10 ppl there.
