    Well, checking in on finally getting around to playing B2.

    Game was going fine until he showed up. I mean, I knew it was inevitable that I'd be forced to admire his implied awesomeness given how much I had to do it last time around, but sheesh, will someone please kick him straight in the nads!?

    My battle against Cheren was basically the opposite of the normal gym in BC. Instead of my fighting pokemon getting knocked out and Snivy picking up the slack, I switched Smugfro in expecting to finish things up only to get a critical one-hit KO. Humorously enough, Lucarifro the Riolu walked away with exactly 1 HP left. The finishing move? Counter.
    "Okay, so I'm going to quick draw and dual wield these one-pound caltrops as improvised weapons..."

    R.I.P ComfyCoat the Level 14 Sewaddle, to a Zubat's Wing Attack in the sewers in the first time you go in (with your rival/ally). I'm not counting this first entrance for the "catch first poke you see" because having an ally stops you from catching.

    EDIT: And one step after the guy left, I got in a battle. Hello, Tiny the Rattata.

    If you lose, you'll be given a consolation prize of one shard.

    I kinda want to enter a team of low attack pokemon that all know selfdestruct. Pineco, Voltorb and Geodude would do nicely, I imagine.

    My Burgh match:
    Growlithe uses Flame Whee,l it pwns Swadloon!
    Dewott uses Razor Shell, it pwns Dwebble!
    Growlithe uses Flame Wheel, it pwns Leavanny!

    The Dewott might've been my Leavanny using Razor Leaf, maybe. I doubt it, given it was the bug gym and... well...

    Similarly hilarious was my crushing the electric gym with an underleveled Trapinch. What's that? Emolga's immune to Ground Attacks? Rock Tomb!

    I love my Trapinch... Can't wait for it to evolve up to Flygon...

    Also, I cannot catch a decent Cobalion. I've gotten two Modest ones, and the ones with decent-ish natures have terrible IV spreads. Finally settled on a Mischievous Brave one with modest Attack, HP, and SpDef IVs and low Def and Speed ones.

    Did a quick search through my other DS games and discovered while I was breeding Timburr in B1 I boxed an Adamant Sheer Force one. While in 1 that was decent at best, in 2 that's incredible as all I have to do is tutor thunder/ice punch and have an utter powerhouse at my disposal.

    Great. New pokemon for Relic Passage or whatever it's called: Timburr. And then I promptly lost my wierd-psychic-bird-Unown-thing-I-never-remember-the-name-of to a Roggenrolla.

    And even acceptable is damn hard to get somedays.

    I count myself fortunate - for once - that my Dialga in diamond had not only a +SA nature, but max SA IVs. (Timerender made my primary team, not something I normally do for legendaries! Okay, yeah, I did use Victini for the first up-to-E4 hald of B1, but then again, by the end, poor Glorious was starting to be outclassed by the rest of the team, and when Wytchfyre, my Modest, max SA Chandelure took over...!)

    That, incidently, was one of the other precious few times I lucked out, as that was the first one I caught (And I spent ages catching more of 'em, because I didn't know better, before I finally twigged I literally couldn't get a better one!) On the other hand, I have been trying to get a decent Frillish for YONKS, but I cannot get one with a decent +SA and above average IVs; it's either good IVs or a good nature, and never the twain shall meet...!)

    Now, if I use the Unova Key thing to get Black Tower, do I get the Shiny Gible as well, or is it only for the first one you beat?



    That aside, I'm 8 away from completing my Unovadex. Mostly just happiness Evos, but still short the 3 items from before.

    That's not counting Zekrom and the three genie looking things which aren't obtainable. Are you required to trade those in for completion credit, or are legendaries excluded?

    That moment when Colress almost volt-turns me to death.

    I had accidentally let one of my Lucarios faint before fighting this battle, and the other one had only about 12 hp. (I don't use healing items out of battle except for the elite 4).

    I'm glad I'm not Nuzlocking.

    Beat him with the second Lucario at 3 hp, though.

    I once tried to nuzlocke Black with the additional stipulation that no healing items- classified as any item stored in the 'medicine' or 'berry' pocket- could be used at any time, in or out of battle. The game is still saved right before the E4, but damn was it tough to get that far.

    That little area at the top of the stairs from the sewers? With the tree and the grass?

    Good news and bad news:

    Good news: I didn't lose a poke within minutes of getting the new one from the new area.

    Bad news: The new poke is Ears the Audino. I mean, seriously.

    Dude, Audinos are awesome

    They're fairly tanky (for playing through the game) and learn all the coverage moves you could want. Give it an expert belt and Surf/Flamethrower/Thunderbolt/Ice Beam and go to town

    I've always thought that it'd be awesome to catch an Audino on Route 1. They're so much better than everything else you can catch there, and especially in the early game they'd be fantastic tanks. Personally, I play with the rule that Audino cannot be caught. My reasoning is that the pokemon god clearly made them with the intention of them getting pwned by every trainer that comes along, and thus catching them upsets the natural balance of things.

    More B2 Playthrough Notes.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Well, I don't like Roxie's taste in pokemon, but her gym music was quite enjoyable. True to what I said earlier in the thread, I opted not to get a Magnemite. I was looking for a nice, interesting new pokemon to add to my team beforehand, but the Dream Radar gave me Munna and Swablu... Both of which I've kinda had my fill. I wasn't feeling it for Growlithe, and Magby's yet another annoying evolution, so the only new guy to the team is Koffing. Yes, I've never really used Koffing. Sadly, outside of Smugfro evolving, the whole gym was soloed by Riolu, so it wasn't really necessary.

    Really missing my bicycle.

    Oh yeah! Our may be inefficient, but I just pulled off an awesome combo on Burgh's Swadloon.

    Step one: Magnemite paralyzes it, waits for it to use strong shot.
    Step two: Get it to low health so he heals out instead of attacking.
    Step three: send in Contrary Shuckle with Encore.

    Edit: And Burgh is down! Current team:
    Shuckle, level 18 Dream Shuckle.
    Upnose, level 17 Servine.
    Ears, level 17 Audino
    Amalgam, level 18 Magnemite.
    Tornadus, level 17 Therian Tornadus
    Genesect, level 17 Genesect.
    Standbys are:
    Tiny, the level 14 Rattata
    Lumbar, the level 15 Timburr
    Two level 5 Munnas from the DR.

    So can someone give me a brief explanation for how the Dream World thing works? I signed up on the web site, but when I try to connect from the game, it says something about how a pokemon needs to be dreaming first. I have no idea where to go to make it work.

    Use the Game Sync option from your C-Gear to make a Pokémon in a box dream. When you're done with Dream World, use the same option to wake it back up.

    Thanks for the help, I got it to work. Though I was only able to bring one pokemon back from the Dream World (wishing at the tree lets you pick one, and then after that you can't go back to the island until you've sent that pokemon on it seems). It seems like you should be able to get more since there's slots for 10 pokemon when it says what it's sending back, am I doing something wrong?

    Well, later on, the type of Pokemon may modify the chances of what area of the Dream World you get. (E.g., my black game has enough dream points to have unlocked the Sparkling Sea, so I generally use a Blastoise (brought through from gen III...!) to sleep, as that gives me more chance of accessing that location and hopefully eventually of finding a female DW corphish... (Female because the males can't pass down the hidden ability.)

    And for ages before that, I was using a Purrloin I'd been DWing since the start, and was getting more and more frustrated that I seemed to never get anything but the Spooky Mansion, until pokethread informed me that they'd implemented relating type to the location chances...!

    Huh, that's weird. I used Magmar and got an Ice Cave as my location. Hardly seems related. Is there a site listing what areas there are and what pokemon correspond with which locations?
    If my text is blue, I'm being sarcastic.But you already knew that, right?

    It's probability-based, not a direct 1-1 correlation.

    Also, Drayden. Besides the EPIC BEARD, has things which have been passed down in his family for GENERATIONS. Why they didn't make him the new Champion I don't know...
