    Just finished filling out my Unova Region pokedex.

    Now starting on catching all of them (currently about 2/3 of the way there. 180 out of 298). I'm worried about running out of box space. Why are there only 8 boxes in this game? I thought 16-20 was the standard.

    You have to put a pokemon in each box to get more.

    Also, I picked Black before White the first time around, too. (Actually, I had been intending to go for White first this time around, bu then I heard about the difficulty unlocks.)
    I'm actually staying away from both modes. Once I'm done with the story, I'm transferring all my important pokemon from Black and kicking all NPCs in the crotch with a lv 100 Garchomp.

    The story is really not as gripping as Black/White Original, and so far hasn't made me want to replay it at all. I don't even know if New Team Plasma has done anything besides halfheartedly threaten to TAEK OVER THA WURLD with the power of TEH DARGONS (I'm at Opelucid City atm, and it feels like a badge grind like from gens 1-4), but no - the big thing the game keeps screaming in my face is OH HELLS NO THEY STOLE A PURLOIN. I think maybe advertising the whole "Whoa! Unova is half-frozen over!!" thing Nintendo did was a bad way to go about the story to B/W2, considering it -still hasn't happened- at Opelucid gym. Oh yeah, and if Purloin wasn't the most ridiculously useless piece of crap ever.

    This isn't including the horrible inclusion of triple battles as random trainers. So, what, I get to scramble to rearrange my team because I wasn't given any indication of a triple battle, while they get a free turn to set up/KO some ****? Every triple battle I've encountered has made me rage in this exact same way, especially since my team is pretty much terrible at triple battles (Earthquake? Surf? Abndfuiodfcdc). All of it adds up to a rather aggravating experience. For those playing Blind Nuzlocke, I feel very sorry for you. You will lose many pokemon on the way to Opelucid and the Elite 4 after that.

    Oh, and Hugh is the most annoying rival. EVER. He's all like "Rawr! I'm out for revenge!" and...that's as deep as he gets! Every time I meet him he's like "Where did Team Plasma go, Gwen??" The whole reason he started was to find Team Plasma and get his sister's cat back and prove himself to be a man.

    the return to cartoonish villainy. Cartoonish in the take-over-the-world sense. And I noticed a lot more people talking about the bonds between people and pokemon, or trainers always talking about how much fun your pokemon and their pokemon had battling. It seemed as if Game Freak was trying to tell the kids who played the last game that they shouldn't feel bad about making their pokemon fight because they like it. Then I realized something:

    I had been talking to a friend about how Team Plasma's antics probably set back any legitimate pokemon welfare groups in the universe by years; if there was an actual pokemon welfare movement then Team Plasma would have completely delegitimized it. So while some of the people you talk to and trainers you fight have been genuinely thoughtful the past couple of years about how to better pokemons' lives, many of them are probably just trying to justify their actions even more, because Team Plasma's extremism and Ghetsis' Complete Monstery turned them off from then entire movement.

    I'm also doing this, having just moved a couple of my SoulSilver pokemon up to my black 2. I must say it was highly amusing watching my Shaymin sweep all of Colress' post-game team. I'm also currently brainstorming on what to put together for my Battle Subway team. How does Terrakion/Metagross/Dragonite sound?

    I just realized that I have no pokemon with any ice moves.

    And also, in fact, no pokemon that can learn surf, either. Whoops.

    My bit of advice. Save up 70,000, then go grab the Blizzard TM from Lacunacosa town. You'll thank me.

    Sigilyph can learn Icy Wind from one of the move tutors, it's what I tried using. (As it turned out using neutral damage probably would have been more effective, but thought I'd point it out anyway)

    But your levels are probably fine for the gym. You're more or less matching Dray's levels.

    Wow, using Magnemite against Roxie felt... wrong. It was far too easy, especially since I was about 4 levels lower than everything she had. I haven't roflstomped a gym with a fresh Pokemon since Surge with a Diglett.

    In other news, laptop cord has a short so thankfully I got a new video up before my computer ran out of juice and died.

    breeding in this game seems different. If I am constantly switching out who I breed, I hatch an egg before a new egg comes available. But if I stick with the same two parents, I get a new egg like every 500 steps or so, to the point that I can't pick up anymore.

    Has it always been like this, or is it a new thing?

    It's kind of luck based, and also based on the pairs' OT/species. If the OT is the same and the species is different, the pair has a small chance of producing an egg (let's call it "1"). If they have different OTs, it's "2", and if they have different OTs and the same species, it's "3" (assuming they can breed with the same species - if any of these factors makes them unable to breed then it's always "0"). At 1, you have a ~25% chance to generate an egg every 255 steps; at 2, it's closer to 50%, and 3 is about 70%. I wish I could remember the exact numbers, but they're somewhere around there...

    I'm fairly certain it's been like this since Gen2. Unless B2/W2 changed it, but I haven't actually noticed a difference yet...

    So here's some cool news for everyone:

    This year for Pokemon League, players will get the chance to get all eight badges from Black and White 2...as physical items.

    You order a free badge case through your Play! Pokemon account and have it shipped where you go for Pokemon League. Throughout the seasons you'll be eligible to get these badges.

    ...I'm certainly glad I play the TCG now! ^^

    Here's a link:

    I guess luck has just been really weird. Like I said, I've been consistently getting 3000+ steps to get the first egg, then 250-500 steps per egg after that. If I switch pokemon in the daycare, it starts over. (I've been spending the last day or two breeding out all the pre-evolutions I don't have for Unova Dex. 224/298 pokemon obtained as of now)

    Speaking of, any idea how I could get my hands on a magmarizer? Serebii says it's available in Black City, but A) I can't go there, and B) On the black city page it doesn't list it as for sale. I guess I could grab one on Heart Gold and trade it over on a dummy pokemon, but that seems like a lot of effort for something so simple. Why would they make the Magmarizer/Electerizer so impossible to find? Rare like the stones would be fine, but this is literally "You get one item per 2 games" what the hell. (It doesn't help my Brother, who got black, somehow missed the Magmarizer on his playthrough, so I can't even use his for pokedex completion)

    Congratulations.

    And really, I'm, surprised Jellicent held up so well. I have a Jellicent, and I really don't see what the fuss is all about. It honestly feels like one of my squishier pokemon, despite its supposed tanking abilities. I know mine has a bad nature for tanking, but even that shouldn't make THAT huge of a difference to the point of instead of being my most durable pokemon it's getting curbstomped.

    Actually, you can't trade between Gen IV (HG) and V; best you can do it get to the Poketransfer, and use it to bring in the requisite Pokemon from a prior generation (as you can't send items.)

    What's available in Black City is highly dependant on how much you play with someone else on White, whether you're lucky enough to get that one trader who you can buy it from (and if you're lucky enough to get anyone at all; as Nintendo did the remarkable stupid thing of penalising you if don't complete the game quickly (in terms of real time, not game hours played) and play constantly; when I got to Black City it was completely empty.

    If you can't locate how to get one from Bulbapedia aside from Black City, best bet is see if anyone here had got a spare one to trade.

    The short answer is Gamefreaks seem to take a perverse pleasure in being fracktards sometimes (e.g. not giving you the difficulty settings at the start of the game, and putting hard and easy mode in different games and then saying can only even unlock them via DS to DS link...)

    Well, if you have Black or White, you can just soft-reset the treasure hunter until you get one. He gives out one item per day, and he's got pretty much all of the evolution items, as well as flutes and heart scales.

    I don't have either, but my brothers do. I'll see if I can con one of them into getting it for me. Or letting me use their game long enough to grab it. Thanks for the tip.

I guess I could grab one on Heart Gold and trade it over on a dummy pokemon, but that seems like a lot of effort for something so simple. Why would they make the Magmarizer/Electerizer so impossible to find? Rare like the stones would be fine, but this is literally "You get one item per 2 games" what the hell. (It doesn't help my Brother, who got black, somehow missed the Magmarizer on his playthrough, so I can't even use his for pokedex completion)
    Do you have black/white 2? At least in Black 2, there should be one on the plasma frigate.

    I have White 2, there's an Electerizer there instead of the Magmarizer. My brother that has Black 2 missed the Magmarizer while he was there
    If my text is blue, I'm being sarcastic.But you already knew that, right?

    Well worth it, in my opinion. And since Lucario's part steel-type, he'll be resistant to dragon-type moves (disclaimer: I'm only halfway through Reversal Mountain; I don't know Drayden's full moveset). If Lucario's got Swords Dance, then he should be able to survive a one-turn setup and sweep his entire team. And if not, it's still Lucario with Ice Punch. If you're still in trouble, does your Serperior still have Leech Seed? You could put a layer of that down; he's fast and bulky enough to survive a Dragon Claw.

    The only worry is that he'll phaze you. His signature move hasn't changed from the original.

    ...Oh. Lovely. Welp, let's just hope I can Ice Beam my way through it then. At least my Growlithe has Intimidate.
