This gen is filled with fucking amazing concepts, but goddamn if the sprites and designs aren't ugly as sin. It looks like one big fakemon spritesheet made real. There are some good designs yeah, but they're outnumbered 3 to 1.

That depends on whether unevolved means "pokemon that have not evolved," "pokemon that have not fully evolved," or "pokemon able to evolve which have not evolved."

If it's the first or second we'll have to deal with Skarm or Chansey. It it's the third the item is useless except for maybe Gligar in UU.

Apparently one of the old rumors, which also had the fact that there would be 156 pokemon, had something about a battle option called Fresh. Fresh apparently means that only pokemon caught or bred in B/W are allowed.

If this is real, this would mean a couple of things:

-Unavailable legends would not be usable until there are events (note: dream world is apparently going to hand them out, so this might not be a problem)
-Any pokemon from an older gen would have to be bred before being usable, which would filter out event moves, tutors, and non-returning TMs (like, say, STEALTH ROCK). Also you'll have to re-train/breed/hack yadda yadda whatever.

So, yes, no, or dealwithit.jpg?

Okay, has anyone else noticed how anal Nintendo of America is being about Black and White?
First they didn't give the English games a release date outside of Spring of 2011. I'm not super pissed about this or anything but COME ON. The game is already out in fucking Japan, give us a month at least.
Then they started attacking English fan sites that were posting information and images. This pissed me off. In fact, I'm willing to bet they would've tried to have the info taken down if it wasn't for the fact that you legally can't pull information down from anywhere. Pictures, yes. Information, no.
And now they're sweeping through Youtube and having all the music and videos pulled down. I think I'm actually really pissed off about that one. That was some really good music.
Now, legally they have the right to do this, yes. But it's still pissing me off. They are being complete douche bags this generation. What the fucking hell?

>>13357
Along with Meloetta. Which I'm sure you'll realize very quickly is going to be the worst movie ever made for Pokemon. Think about it. Idol Pokemon.

Antagonist/Rival. The guy was manipulated by Gaycheese ever since he was young, isolating him with having only Pokemon as friends, giving N a warped view that the trainer system must go down, when in fact Pokemon and Humans can work together

Gaycheese's actual goal is to trick N to drive away the humans so that he can control all Pokemon in the end.

OK, this is sort of eyebrow raising:

There's a new ability called (according to serebii's translation) "perversity" which reverses changes to stats.

It can be used by a Dream World Shuckle, Spinda, and the Tsutarja line.

Tsutarja can learn Leaf Storm.
So unless the ability has some restrictions they haven't found out yet that make it completely useless (Anticipate, Feint), it will have an attack with base power of 140, STAB, and will increase their Special Attack by two levels every time they use it.

75 Special Attack and 113 Speed are too low for a STAB Leaf Storm which just keeps getting stronger to be powerful?

>>13499
Exactly what I was thinking.

>>13500
Especially since they both learn, again, Leaf Storm, and Critical Hits negate your negative stat changes.

>>13507
According to serebii, Hypnosis's accuracy is still 60 like it's been since Platinum.

I appreciate the indirectly nerfing of Stealth Rock (it can only be learned by level up, mostly by rock Pokemon with low speed) but everyone is just going to keep using it by transfer.

I thought criticals just negated your opponent's defense boosts?

No.13520
>>13516
No, it decides on modified or unmodified for each stat depending on whichever does the most damage.

In Gen I it would always do unmodified, so it would be possible for a critical hit to do less damage than a regular one.

No.13524
>>13516
It negates any of your Attack debuffs and your opponent's defence buffs, while keeping any of your Attack buffs and your opponent's defence debuffs.
Basically that weak move that always criticals is going to be a wall breaking machine. Especially if a Sniper learns it.

No.13527
>>13524
Moves, actually: Mountain Storm (Fighting) and Ice Breath (Ice obviously).

Granted, the fighting one is only learned by one Pokemon and they're otherwise identical.

Unfortunately, none of the ones that can learn either can have Sniper as their ability, even if they're from the Dream World.

It can use a choice scarf too, unless Perversity effects (which would be even better because then it could hold an iron ball to times its speed by 2 instead of 1.5 without penalty).

With that much power from that one move, it barely matters that it has no other non-Grass special damaging moves besides Hyper Beam, Wring Out, Sing A Round, Twister, and Hidden Power.

Yes, but RIGHT off the bat. as in, you toss out Ditto and all your opponent ever sees is that you tossed out the same pokemon as him.

It's a bluff tactic mainly, or a decent counter if your running a pokemon with moves that could devistate it's own type.

No.13634

No no. You toss out your Ditto and then it Transforms automatically into the other Pokemon, gaining its exact stats and moves.
Meaning.
If your ditto has like a Choice Scarf on it...it'll be the other Pokemon, except faster.
THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO DISCOVER WHAT KIND OF TEAM THE OPPONENT IS RUNNING AND HOW TO FUCK IT OVER.
