The fuss around Audino is purely based on the amount of experience it gives, and how you are guaranteed to find one with some patience, making them perfect grinding fodder.

I'm just curious how is the game so far? I've been on the fence about getting White. I haven't played a pokemon since red, blue, and yellow but after seeing some videos and reading a few reviews this game sounds like its the perfect time to jump back into the franchise.

I took a look at one of the more popular pokemon forums and it seems to have gotten a lot more complicated since I first beat Red after it was first released.

I could be wrong, but I think he just means starting a game, transfering it to another Pokemon game, restarting over, choosing the next starter, transfering it over again. Then on the third restart you keep that starter, and transfer the other two back over, so you have all three starters in a new game. Another trick along those lines I like is transfering eggs over to a new game. That way when you hatch them they count as pokemon native to that game, so you don't have to worry about over leveling them and them not listening to commands. You can save before the egg hatches, hatch it, see if it's the nature you want, if it is then reset and transfer it over to your new game before it hatches. It's what I did with my Heart Gold team.







I changed my mind at the last second on Black btw. I was going to choose it, but last night I looked over the differences again, and looked at Black City on youtube, and then White Forrest. Came to the realization that outside of thinking the Goth pokemon looked somewhat interesting, that I cared about none of the Black exclusives. Then after seeing Black City and White Forrest I realized neither was a huge deal and balanced eachother out. So it came down to White adding a bit more story with Iris, and that I thought Braviary and Thundurus were awesome. I'll just hold off for the eventual Pokemon Grey, and do the 3 starter run then and just skip over Black for now. Kinda glad I looked everything over one more time before I bought it later today. Now just to make a definite decision on which starter I want to go with first heh.

Is it just me or do the new camera angles during battle slow it down a bit?

I really like it so far. Very beginning sucks but probably the same as the others. SoulSilver was different for me since I got my team really early on by trading what I needed from Diamond. But the pace picks up after the first gym since you encounter more unique Pokemon. Before that all you see is 2 Normal and a (crappy) Dark Pokemon. After that you can get a Psychic, Psychic/Flying, Rock, Electric, Ground, Normal/Flying, Water and Fighting.

Goddamn Amazon has still yet to process my trade-in credit. I'll be lucky to get this game by the end of the month at this rate

The beginning of the originals were pretty sucky too. I've read that this one has an actual story and it is pretty awesome that the games features basically all new pokemon. I think I'll have to buy it. 35 bucks is a great deal for these games since they last longer than most 60 dollar games.

I thoght the battles were faster, actually. For reference, I was playing SoulSilver right up until I got White.




Also: Second pokemon I encountered was Shiny. First time ever for me, minus Red gyrados. Patrat, but meh I'm happy it was shiny.

Yea, Black/White are leagues aboved Diamond/Pearl...the battles move much quicker and I love that I have to learn about a bunch of new pokemon that I've never dealt with.

I just got White today so far I'm loving it. I just got to the 2nd gym but I haven't beaten it yet. I chose Oshawott as my first pokemon and love his first transformation into Dewott he looks like a samurai otter. I like that they are all new pokemon gives the game a real fresh feeling to it. The battles are fast and since I haven't played a pokemon game since blue, red, and yellow. The double battles are great, I can't wait to try out the triple and rotation.

Triple and Rotation battles are too few in BW, fewer in White for some reason.

I went ahead with Snivy myself (who I renamed ThornViper). I looked everything over one last time, and while I know I won't use Snivy past the elite 4, the others just didn't do it for me. Too many good new water Pokemon to make Oshawott worth it (for me), and Tepig's final form is just too slow and fragile (has nice hp, but defenses are rock bottom) to be worth it (again to me). Plus I saw other fire types I liked as well, like the dual ghost/fire.



Pretty much picked up the same Pokemon as anyone else has so no need to get into something boring like that. One thing I'm finding out tho is that I'm not fond of the names in this game. I usually don't rename my Pokes, but changed Snivy, and the water monkies name (Apestream...sounds like number 1, but I meant it to be a play on extreme lol). Also got an Audino right after the first gym, then a Munna (which looks awful), so got to luckily replace my Patrat pretty quick (I'm not usually a fan of the normal first Pokes, Sentret, Ratatatatatata, and so on).


Other than all of that, loving the game so far. The graphics are a nice bump up, and all the other little touches are nice. The more anime like phone scene was nice. Also it finally hit me how awesome reusable TM's are. Got that Work up and just started using it on any of my Pokes that could use it lol.

From my understanding about dreamworld (as I just looked it up myself after I got the C-gear), is that it requires the c-gear online feature. The problem is the servers won't be up until the 30th of this month. It kept giving me the "servers are currently under maintanence" message is why I looked it up in the first place.

After that, I'm not sure. I watched a Youtube video and it seemed to involve playing minigames and befriending pokemon to take back to the real world. On top of that the graphics even seemed different, as the it was more like a painting with your pokemon drawn bigger like it came off the anime. I was kinda envisioning walking around in the grass and catching pokemon like usual.



Also just caught a Drilbur , he looks awesome. Problem is tho he was -speed, so trying to catch another. Had to look up the whole look for them drilling thing. This could take awhile to find a decent one (wanting one in my party, but can't breed my female Drilbur yet).

I wish there was a way to know the poke's nature before you caught it this gen. Finding pokemon with decent natures, especially the rarer ones, can be quite the pain in the ass.

Natures on your campaign Pokemon are irrelevant really. It's only +/- 10% either way and is only in full effect at level 100.

Did anyone else have troubles with the second gym leader Lenora. Holy crap her Watchog just destroyed me 5 times. Granted my team besides Dewott isn't the strongest in the world but holy crap.
