    Ice beam should help. For my team, Drayden was by far the hardest pre E4 fight. Of course, I had no ice type attacks to speak of, so that was probably a factor.

    Aside from the usual differences in pokemon, are the b/W2 games different at all?

    By the time you get to the gym, your Growlithe should have Outrage (learns at 43 I believe), which makes the whole gym a joke.

    They're a hell of a lot more different than any other 3rd game (emerald, platinum, etcetera) was from the original.

    Route 4 is either filled with new apartment/office buildings or excavated ruins, there's a cave section that either has an aquatic or magma decor, N is referred to having befriended either Zekrom or Reshiram, Black City/White Forest and Opelucid have the same differences as before, your path through Victory Road differs...

    There's a few more towns, the pokemon world tournament seems like a lot of fun and a billion times better than the battle subway, the breeding mechanics seem more competitive-battling friendly, and move tutors have returned.

    Just started the Drayden fight.

    So, I generally use the same names for my player characters.

    I was greatly amused when he talked about being impressed "by Forrest and Iris," to another Forrest.

    I do this, too. Makes the flashbacks a little more mindscrew-y.

    That, and switching versions means that your previous character is retconned into capturing the Legendary Dragon that you didn't capture. (Also retconned into not-catching Kyurem and the Swords of Justice and depending on your interpretation possibly also Zoroark, much like with Red in GSC/HGSS... not-catching as opposed to releasing unless N is just that special.)

    Getting ever closer to my pokedex completion. My to-do list:

    Spoiler
    Show

    Yamask-Level 19| needs 34
    Deerling-Level 23 | needs 34
    Ducklette-Level 23 | needs 35
    Baltoy-Level 27 | needs 36
    Joltik-Level 25 | needs 36
    Archen-Level 26 | needs 37

    Klink-Level 26 | needs 38/49

    Gothita-Trade and level
    Heracross-Trade

    Cryogonal-Capture or Trade


    I should probably have checked what the reward was for completion before going through all this trouble, but I'm so close now, gotta keep grinding. All I can say is thank god for all of the daily level 60-75 trainers out there. (I got 15 pokemon evolved from levels today, but they were all the easy ones who just needed 1-2 levels. The remaining ones I figure I'll probably only be able to get 3-4 a day unless I go grinding audinos or start grinding the elite 4)

    I've always viewed pokedex completion as more of a bragging rights reward. I personally feel extremely proud of my living pokedex.

    I'm gonna have to get all the medals, though, now that I realize that they exist.

    I have a challenge for you guys that have B/W 2. Earn the "One and Only" medal, by stomping the entire Elite 4 (including champ) with only one Pokemon. Bonus points if you turn on challenge mode. (if you have black 2, gives all of their pokemon a 5 level bump) I'll post a pic of my entry once I get hold of a camera that's not attached to the back of my 3DS.

    I was thinking about turning on easy mode and trying this with my Krookodile (it has the best type coverage to sweep them all, I think). I don't think a hard mode run would be possible without an optimized level 100 and a lot of items.

    I personally did it with my Level 100 Shaymin that I ported from my SS game. It knows Seed Flare, Air Slash, Earth Power, and Hidden Power (Fire, lucky me), so coverage generally wasn't an issue. Still took me 3 tries though, due to Shauntal's Drifblim and it's STAB'd, Flying Gem'd Acrobatics.

    Riolu - Level 9 (Yeah, I know everyone is doing it, but I've never raised a Riolu/Lucario)
    Mareep - Level 8

    Also did the memory link thing, and saw N releasing his Pokemon. Even mentioned the Pkmn White 1 hero by name! They need to do that kind of link with all future Pokemon games. Continuity is rather awesome.

    I was sweeping the E4 with just one Pokémon before Challenge Mode was ever released, and the 'mon wasn't anywhere near level 100.

    What I think a real challenge would be is fighting the Champion Tournament with only one Pokémon, whose Base Stat Total must be less than 570. (Which neatly eliminates all Legendaries and Pseudo-Legendaries) Exceptions can be made for Regigigas and Slaking, due to their horrifyingly terrible abilities.

    Back in BW1, I swept the E4 with a dragon dancing gyarados. I did have to use a few elixers and potions, but no revives and no other pokemon. Of course, he was still about level 70, IIRC, so it'd probably be much easier if he were lvl. 100.

    If I were to do it in BW2, I'd go for my Starmie. It's got BoltBeam coverage, and access to both minimize and recover.

    So, I've been clearing out the White Tree Hollow tonight, using the trainers there to help evolve my ever shrinking list of pokemon I still need. Just got the exp millionaire medal. I expected that to be much more difficult.

    I swept the White elite four multiple times with my level 80 (at the start) Volcarona back when I was completing the pokedex. It's really not that hard.

    Really, the only difference is that the new Champion has a fairly good type focus and in Challenge Mode all the Pokémon are six levels higher than the rematch teams from the original.

    Accepted!

    Will post results soon. Garchomp grows hungry for pokeflesh...

    Edit: Phone's being a piece of trash, so a photo won't be possible just yet. However, I won with Garchomp (big surprise, heh). Items used: Max potion, Max Ether, Rock Gem. Shell Bell was used for the Elite 4, had to use an Ether since 16 Earthquake PP wasn't enough. Forgot Iris's Haxorus has a Focus Sash, and almost lost to Outrage . Now would be a great time to relearn Dual Chop on Garchomp, since it and Dragon Claw end up having the same power anyway, and Dual Chop breaks subs and sashes. The reduced accuracy is slightly a bummer, though...

    Fact: the fastest way to accumulate Shards after clearing out your daily sources, other than running around in caves with five dozen Max Repels, is to lose at PWT. That's right, you can have your little sibling/cousin/niece/nephew farm Shards for you while they learn to play in the big leagues. That, or you can do something that the computer can cheat easier at, like Mix Rotation or Rentals or something.

    Nice. By the way, does anyone know how to expand the PWT? Right now I've got Burgh and Roxie occasionally chipping in at the Driftveil tourney, but my options are still limited to Mix/Rentals/Download, after beating Mix/Rentals/Driftveil a few times. Is there some other requirement to unlocking like, Gym Leaders/Champions?

    Also my Black version is now ~30 level 1 munnas richer. Synchronize breeding without Dittos provided a lot of trade fodder .

    I believe that the more difficult championships are not unlocked until the E4 is beaten.
