Elesa opened up with her Emolga, and I noticed it wasn't doing a whole lot of damage at all. So I put down Leech Seed, popped an X-Defend for good measure, and started spamming growth, managing to completely wall out Emolga. Several turns later, I have +6 Attack and Sp. Atk., and Emolga goes down to a Cut and Leech damage. Then I get this:

    "Ding! Servine has leveled up to 24! Servine would like to learn Mega Drain, but already knows 4 moves. Would you like to delete a move to make room for Mega Drain?"





    Needless to say, I swept the rest of the battle, including the level 30 Flame-Charge spamming Zebstrika, without any problems.
    Oh man, that's almost as good as my battle against Elesa. Hi Elesa, meet my Trapinch. Rita? Rockslide, Rockslide, Dig, Dig. I had to use a Super Potion because her Emolga's Pursuit criticaled, but that was it.

    I was really exited to learn about medals. Now I can have something to catch them all of once Meloetta comes out and thus I will have caught all of the pokemon!

    Yeah I caught it. Thankfully it knew rock slide, so I was able to hit it in small numbers (Riolu with Copycat for the win).

    Fact: Magnemite is hax against Roxie. Confirmed.

    Hell yes. It's also amazing against Burgh, especially if you manage to wrangle a Zubat from the sewers. Even underleveled, the two of them can tank even critical hits from the guy like nothing, and Sonicboom/STAB Wing Attack are pure murder.

    This is SO ANNOYING.

    I have the money to get B2. Unfortunately, though I have a driver's license, I don't have any excuse that would take me in the direction of any nearby game store. Costco doesn't stock it, if there's any other supersupermarket (as in stocking non-food, specifically games) nearby I don't know of it and nobody in my family gets stuff from there, and there's no chore I might do that I might be expected to take 30 minutes longer than I'd actually take. The only places near the Gamestop that anybody in my family might go to are restaurants (whole family goes) and clothes stores (which I never go to, and if Mom wants anything from there she'll go herself).

    I would just ask if I can go, but I think I've used up their tolerance for requests with switching out of a class that they wanted me to stay in.

    Traded in 2 games, and $5, and got Black 2 from Gamestop today. Babysitting, so I haven't gotten the chance to try it out. Originally had Pokemon White, so I figured I'd go with the opposite color this time.

    Also went with Smugleaf (Snivy) in my first playthrough, so it's Oshawatt or Tepig this time around. Any recommendations?

    Also, anything I should know before I get it started? I'm generally a casual player (Haven't gotten into the big competitive scene), so I'm not too concerned.

    Happy to see the Pokemon community on OOTS is still active. Who knows, maybe I'll join in on some of those online battles, haven't really done it before.

    Umm... all I can think of to say is that by the time you're level 15 or so Return is better than 90% of the moves the starters learn early on. Also, Riolus in Flocassy Ranch become disc one nukes if you get friendship high enough, fast enough (they like Return a lot as well).

    I have to put this game down for a while. Three times tonight I nearly slung my DS out my window, as triple battle trainers obliterated my team by showing up out of nowhere and being the exact combo to screw me over. The crowning moment was in Drayden's gym, when a triple battle BUGGED UP on me, preventing me from finishing it - Excadrill and Reuniclus got KO'd at the same time, and the game wouldn't let me pick who to send out next. I picked Gurdurr, and it said "Shift with who?" stating all other 3 pokemon couldn't switch. Changing to Chandelure, it said the same thing, with Gurdurr unable to switch. So...forced reset! Great! Another totally infuriating experience with this game!

    And then Drayden. Absolutely out of nowhere crits KOs Excadrill against Druddigon, and then Haxorus spams Dragon Dance several times. Proceeds to 1 hit everything I have, because I don't have anything that can even outspeed it after even 1 dance.

    Well this Elesa battle went much better then the White one did.

    Used a Watchog, Growlithe, and Liepard.

    The team members I didn't bring were Dewott, Crobat, and Lilligant.



    @Derjuin. Wow. You'd think the game would be able to handle more then one pokemon fainting in a triple battle.

    You have to select the fainted pokemon first I think in order to switch something in, I think. That or the other way around. Select one, then select the fainted pokemon.

    So I got White 2 on release day. Just beat the Champion a couple hours ago.

    Warning for Nuzlockers out there, spoilered in case you're doing a blind run for whatever reason:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Be very very careful on Victory Road. Seriously, I blew through 10 revives there despite going in relatively overleveled (by the time I got out my average party level was already the same as the Champion's highest, just for reference).

    Also with the champion, it may just be me, but the Rock/Bird thing caused me the most trouble. I took out most of his team with no casualties, but then that thing turned around and annihilated 4/6 on my team.



    Okay, that warning aside, I enjoyed the game. The story was somewhat interesting (I only got to play half of Black/White 1, so a lot of the plasma and Reshiram/Zekram stuff was new to me). I also found the Habitat List possibly the best new feature ever added to Pokemon. Not sure if it was in Black/White 1, but one of the main reasons I never bother catching everything is because of the hassle involved in figuring out where to go for new stuff. The habitat list makes that much easier and more convenient.

    Also, Join Avenue is amazing. It makes so many things convenient. Right now I've got 3 gyms set up, letting me get 3 free levels daily. The food/salon thing will be useful for grinding happiness I'm sure, and I love the item shops, I've been getting by buying up 36 moo milk daily, saved me a fortune on potions. (Similarly I love Casteliacones, though now that I'm sitting over 50 I'm going to stop going there daily)

    Now to go explore post game stuff.
    If my text is blue, I'm being sarcastic.But you already knew that, right?

    Both are solid choices, though Tepig is better for taking advantage of Return due to its higher Attack.

    Magnemite is also a blasted main battle tank against Roxie. The game specifically has a Rough Neck tell you where to fetch one, and it's in an area you're encouraged to go to before fighting her anyway... and when you're under level 20, 20 almost-guaranteed damage and near-immunity to the opponent is nasty.

    Also, Pokéstar Studios is a great way to get stuff. Just follow the script and you get 5 Lemonade and a Berry Juice every time you complete a movie.

    Hmm... Nah, not gonna use Magnemite. Using Magnemite will just depress me by reminding me about using it back in Gen 1. No, go ahead, look at its moveset from back then.

    Thing is, since it's Magnemite pre-Steel, the pokemon you'd compare it to would be Pikachu. Which, yeah, still isn't a thing like the movesets we have now, but it really says something when Pikachu starts off with Thundershock and it's Magnemite's strongest level-up Electric attack that it learns at level 25.

    But yeah, Jolteon and Voltorb were almost as crummy, too. Guess there's always Electabuzz.

    Edit:

    GAAAH I forgot to set the text speed to "Fast" before starting my game! EVERY! SINGLE! TIME!

    ...Aaaand Smugfro's Calm.

    Well, I guess he's going to be going down the special attack route.

    Not-really-spoilers but still talking about the intro to the new game:

    I chuckled that Bianca had to explain that "this square thingy" is a PC. If I recall correctly, there's not a computer in her house on Black and White Original Classic.

    Huh... so the first town (the one you start in) has a Pokemon Center.

    Well, that was easy to abuse. Mystery Gift'd the Event Pokemon from Wifi, the way the pamphlet inside the B2 case said to... and picked up a LEVEL 15 GENESECT from the Pokemon Center right after picking up my Oshawatt.

    Really... would've preferred level 5... so at least it wouldn't seem like I can plow through the early game too easy. Now I know I have a power house sitting there, incase I get into some trouble.

    Not that it'll listen to you until you get some badges under your belt. Remember cats and kiddies, WiFi Event Mons are treated as Trade Mons. Meaning if you aren't enough of a Trainer to command them, they're as likely to take a nap as fight.

    I tucked mine in the back of Box 8 and have since ignored it. I am now in the sewers of Castelia City, killin their mans powerleveling my entire current team to 20. Possibly some of my box Mons as well, if I can leave and return without Rivaldude running off. Upside: my Mons will be ferocious! Downside: it's a heck of a lot of grinding at this stage in the game. At least Rivaldude restores my HP/PP after every fight...

    Funnily enough, I've never used a Magnemite in any of my teams; I think I'm still at least subconsciously stuck on the whole "G1 Magnemite suuuuucks" thing myself. That and the fact I've never liked the designs of the Magnemite line (though Magnezone is is good enough I'm considering - and not without lots of internal debate even still - using one when I get to W2 - which would be after B2). And it compares unfavourably to Pikachu (well, probably not in later generations with better stats and a move-set in purely game mechanics terms, but otherwise...) in my mind; and there have always been better electric types I liked way more (Mareep/Chinchou, Electrike (probably the most meh of the rest), Shinx and especially Joltik.)

    Wait, what, you can set that before starting the game?!

    ...

    Have I been needlessly waiting until whichever Prof it is shuts up to get to the options menu in every single game in the last three generations?!
