This thread is "Pokémon General". For BW2-specific news, see: >>24543

While everyone is freaking out over BW2, another secret legendary from Generation V has been revealed to the public!


Meloetta (at least its default forme) will be making its debut in the Pikachu short that will air before the fifteenth movie, a la Pikachu's Vacation.

Meloetta the secret legendary that everyone has known about for ages now?

When have they been good at it? Like back in the days of Mew or maybe Celebi?
>> No. 24602
They were "good" during the brief period between the first games coming out and everyone who plays video games figuring out it's easiest just to use the internet to consult someone who actually hacked the game apart.

I think it was Mew that not even people at Nintendo were sure was actually in there or not.

Well back then even the "official" guide for Red/Blue said that b-mashing made captures more likely.

The moral of the story is: Nintendo are fucking liars.

Okay, so Meloetta is a real thing now.
Does that include Pirouette Forme, or are we still waiting for that official reveal too?

Meloetta for best legendary, BTW.

I've had similar problems, one which frustrates me immensely.

My DSi is compatible with WPA wi-fi, but the games themselves are only compatible with WEP apparently. How does that even make any sense?
>> No. 24661
I'm not sure if earlier ones were, but Heart Gold/Soul Silver and Black/White are WPA-compatible when used with a 3DS but not a DS (lite).
>> No. 24662
Because old DS games weren't programmed to access the DSi's higher capabilities.
Black and White can, though.

the 15th anime anniversary episode of Pokemon Smash was pretty awesome.
Not only did they have pokemon mascots out the wazoo, but Rica was there and she did live songs.
She has so much energy in her singing.
Also they didn't just re-air the first episode, they re-aired a remastered version!

>>realizing that besides the promo Legendary Beasts, I've never come across a single Shiny Pokemon in any of the games

I have mixed feelings about this. I mean, the only difference is aesthetic, right?
>> No. 25220
Same, and yes, it's strictly aesthetic in the newer gens. Back in gens I and 2, I think, I'm pretty sure the cause of shiny Pokemon was a perfect IV spread, which lead to the rumor that shiny Pokemon were inherently more powerful, but nowadays, that's not true.
>> No. 25221

Shininess was determined by iv spread in Gen II but Shiny pokemon were usually only slightly above average ev-wise at best

>>If a Pokémon's Speed, Defense, and Special IVs are 10, and its Attack IV is 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 14 or 15, it will be Shiny.
>> No. 25230
Okay guys, I need some help: I'm breeding a UU or lower team for BW2 that will be the est ever but I can't decide on which Pokemon to include. Here are the Pokemon I'm definitely going to include:

Octillery (Because he's a baller)
Mismagius (Because she's also a baller)
Galvantula (Because I spent weeks breeding the perfect one and I'll be damned if it goes to waste!)
Shedinja (To Baton Pass speed boosts to Octillery)

So that leaves me with two slots left to fill and too many potential pokemon to fill it. Pokemon I'm thinking of using to fill the remaining 2 slots:


Help me finish my team!

Ludicolo's a fucking boss.
Rain Dish + Leftovers + Leech Seed = laffo
I've switched Ludicolo into a Suicune, seeded it, and then immediately gotten frozen by an Ice Beam or Blizzard or w/e.
He stayed frozen the entire time Suicune was on the field.
Suicune was KO'd by Leech Seed long before he could KO Ludicolo.
Also Xatu's fun with Mirror Bounce.

Is there a good chart somewhere I can print off that lists Pokemon, their (pre)evos, and what it takes to get from one to the next?

I'm trying to load B/W with as many Pokemon as I can from HG, Pearl, Sapphire, and LG so I can just have *one* Pokemon game in case I actually decide to fight someone. Having a checklist that I can mark off to see if I need to do anything in Gen IV or Gen III before moving them (like a trade/held-item evolution or something) would be quite useful.
>> No. 25504

Doesn't have evolutions on the page (but it does have base stats?), but it's a start.
>> No. 25508
I think I'll just roll my own. I need to group disjointed relationships (Eeveelutions, babbys) as well as what is necessary to evolve or get eggs (in some cases).

Is there a good place to get Pokemon sprites? Preferably one that won't cry about using them, because I'd like to stick this on the internet for others to use once it's complete.

>> No. 25549
Holy crap what will it take to catch this damn Suicune. 25 Ultra balls and a smattering of other balls, 1 HP, sleeping, and at best it rocks twice.
>> No. 25552
A+B and down, bro.
>> No. 25553

At 1HP and asleep, your average legendary takes 30+ ultra balls to capture. That is the best odds you can get.

Seriously, I get that they're rare and all, but legendaries having a catch rate of fucking THREE is just utterly retarded. Most of them aren't even difficult to get down to optimal capture, and then it's just mindlessly spamming pokeballs by the dozens.
>> No. 25557
Fun fact: Dialga and Palkia have catch rates of 30 each. Mantyke and Mantine's catch rates are 25 each. The primordial beasts of time and space are easier to catch than manta rays.
>> No. 25558
And then there's this bullshit. I don't get this.
>> No. 25559
File 134456791226.png - (469.79KB , 1280x1059 , 550Basculin.png )
By Legendary standards, Dialga and Palkia are fairly easy catches.

And guess who else has a lower catch rate than those two.
>> No. 25561
They're Legendaries you HAVE to fight, so of course they make things a bit easier.
>> No. 25562
You had to fight Groudon and Kyogre too, and they're both a bitch-and-a-half to catch.
>> No. 25563
Everything in Gen III is fucking stupid.
>> No. 25564
Platinum and Emerald both kept the raised capture rates, but in neither game are you at any point forced to capture those.
>> No. 25567
The only game where you have to catch a legendary is B/W, you can faint anything else to my knowledge. But who in their right mind wouldn't reset until they caught it?

>> No. 25572
I'm honestly pretty surprised that they haven't made an antagonist similar to the villain in the second Pokemon movie yet.
IE: hunting down and catching legendary Pokemon ultimately (and unintentionally) resulting in a cataclysmic event that you have to fix
>> No. 25573
Because that would clash with the deeply-rooted sentiment of "FUCK IT, CATCH THOSE MOFOIN LEGENDS" permeating the games. As opposed to the way the anime tends to treat legendaries as being generally more important than warrants fucking about by a nine year old dumbass.

Anime: see this Pokémon here? If you caught this Pokémon, it would END THE WORLD.
Game: catch everything you see, give no fucks as to the consequences.

>> No. 25577
Don't forget Nurse Joy's freaking Latias. What the hell.
>> No. 25579
Latios and Latias don't really seem to fall under the same category of legendaries as a lot of the others. They seem to canonically be a species with multiple members (as evidenced by having sexes despite not being breedable), and presumably there's a breeding population somewhere. And I don't think any of the games have really given them a mystical backstory or anything.

All the other legendaries seem to be one-of-a-kind gods and spirits and genetic experiments, and Latios and Latias just seem to be a powerful species of dragon that's either endangered or usually live far away. Their base totals mean that they're never going to be something we find in the wild in a game, but theoretically they live in the wild somewhere.

Come to think of it, I guess technically there would be multiple Deoxys running around somewhere, too, right?
>> No. 25580
Deoxys is a mystery. It's a freaking alien, so there's no telling how many they are, where they're from, or even what it's made of.
>> No. 25581
So in the process of capturing as many Pokemon as possible in Gen III/IV and transferring them to Black, I have created a site page (which I will post here when done) that lists all the Pokemon by National Pokédex number, except for babbys/new evos, which I put with the originals.

Going through each one individually, getting the names, placing the pictures, and marking up which III/IV games they appear in (and if they appear in B/W at all!) takes a long damn time. Been working on it for two or three weeks and just now have I completed everything up to Gen III. Gen IV should be done by the end of the week, in part because about a quarter of those are babby/evos of previous ones.

My brother and I are convinced that Galavantula sounds like a good name for a metal band.

From serebii:
"For those of you in America,the Keldeo event is now running in Gamestop stores across the country, or EB Games if you're in Canada. This event gives a Level 15 Keldeo with a PP Max to Pokémon Black & White games. In Black & White, you can teach it Secret Sword if you take Cobalion, Terrakion and Virizion with it to the Moors of Icirrus, but if you wait until Black 2 & White 2 are out and trade it over, you can activate its Resolute Form by teaching this move. The event lasts until October 6th so be sure to get it while you can
As a reminder, this event runs in Europe from September 1st to October 11th, in various stores such as GAME in the UK and various other stores depending on the country. Be sure to check your local store to see if they're participating. In Australia, it runs from September 15th to October 10th in EBGames stores."

"For those of you in the UK, the stores GAME & Gamestation have announced all the stores in the country will be participating, not select ones as per previous events. These stores will all be giving away Keldeo for Black & White players from this Saturday, September 1st, until October 11th...the day before Pokémon Black 2 & White 2's release."

So, how much better is Black/White 2 compared to the originals? I'm asking because I really ended up liking the sequels, so I'm thinking about getting one of the first ones too.
>> No. 25842
The sequels don't solve many of the core issues the first two games had. They're incredibly hand-holdy, the plot is repeatedly forced down your throat with gratuitous cutscenes full of awkwardly-translated dialog, and so on...

On the other hand, at least now there's decent post-game content. And the world is MUCH bigger, there's a lot more to do..

I'm calling them an improvement, but many of the things Black/White broke still haven't been fixed.
>> No. 25844
I thought all you ever wanted from Pokemon was a more sweeping plot that mixes up the badge quest by intimately intertwining it with the fate of the planet.
>> No. 25845
I don't know about anyone else in this thread, but personally I'd like to see a Pokémon game that has a grand, compelling plot I'm not forced to pay attention to. But then, I like choice.

Honestly, I still think Platinum is the best plot-driven main series game so far, because god damn that was well-integrated. And actually interesting. To ME. And I'm the kind who doesn't even remember Pokémon games HAVE a plot.
