Come come now, I can't be the only one who still plays this, right? Also, the new Pokemon Games: Black and White (poor naming IMO) come out March 6th. Which, makes a grand total of 649 Pokemon to pit in battle.

Just look at the new Grass starter!

Planning on picking up Black. I don't watch the show or play the card game but the video game is just too fun. Don't try to get technical with me though; I don't have the patience to EV train or breed god-mode pokes.

the games are hella fun i have to admit. and i might pick it up ( remembers that he has a DS light somewhere ).

having said that it annoys me that they keep adding more and more pokemon all the time.
649 pokemon ? for reals.....
it was fun to ' gotta catch em all ' back when it was reasonable.

but still...catching my favourites out of the new ones they make , training them and completing the quest is still fun :D

Yeah it's getting crazy. Some of the new pokemon don't even look like they are based off of anything (except maybe drug-induced hallucinations), but I can't really blame the developers. Actually the new cast looks more like spirits or dieties of obscure religions which is kinda cool.

That being said I gave up trying to complete my Dex. With B/W all the pokemon are brand new though so you could just shoot to complete that portion.

to be honest, i stopped liking pokemon when pearl and daimond came out.
while playing daimond i suddenly thought to myself: "why am i doing this? there's no way in hell i'm getting ALL of the pokemon on one game without using hax! *insert computer monitor thrown*"
in my opinion, pokemon is becoming a gimmick.
everytime a "new" pokemon game is coming out, it's practicly the same game, but with more of those little shits!

i don't know, maybe i've grown out of it...

Bacon_Barbarian
02-22-2011, 10:33 PM
Meh, I've actually never bothered to catch them all. I just EV train and breed. ... Which I use to have no patience for. And 649 may seem like a lot, but you can't catch ANY of the previous 493 Pokemon untill you beat the E4, so I think it'll be OK. Also I pre-ordered White a few days ago.

And the new Anime actually looks half decent. Though, they did finally get rid of Brock... I actually use to sprite Pokemon, back in the good ol' days. :/

EDIT:

The new one lets you do live battling online and has triple battles, fully animated sprites, and a completely new roster.

Though it's totally natural to outgrow a series. Don't feel bad.

I'm getting Pokemon White for Zekrom.

I'm going to gamestop to get the Celebi event pokemon(First one exclusive to the US as far as I know.).
I completely despise Oshuawott and I would go for Snivy completely, but is five weaknesses really worth it?

I might just have to choose Oshuawott...

DrPumpkin
02-24-2011, 04:54 PM
Yeah. Got P. White a while back.

I thought the plot was a bit odd. I mean, it felt they were actually trying with the plot this time but kinda failed, or sort of gave up half way through. But who the hell plays pokemon for plot?

The rest is all your Pokemon goodness. Heaven knows I've wasted 100 hours on that game.

I like catching pokemon but not the battles

Hugbees

I'll be getting White. I didn't think I'd get back into the series but once you're in it, it's really hard to keep away. It's almost like World of Warcraft, though I've successfully been off of that for 2 years and going strong.

I hear through the Pokemon Dream World it will be possible to capture all of the pokemon, but it's completely up to the developers what they put up and when or something to that extent. Either way, the game itself doesn't even expect you to catch them anymore, as with D/P it was all about how many were seen.

I caved in and bought this. ):

Matt
03-08-2011, 07:35 PM
I bought white the day after my friend got Black, and we're planning to catch . . . no, see all the new Pokemon. I gave up on catching them all in red and blue after I learned that you had to basically have three games and two Game Boys in order to actually get all 150 Pokemon, and that's not including going to New York or somewhere far away just to get one Pokemon (Mew). If I all I have to do is see them all now, I think I can manage it.

I wasn't really happy with the starters, though. The last starter I thought looked halfway cool was Piplup, back in D/P/Pl, which I never bought. The last decent-looking set of starters was the 3rd generation (Mudkip, Torchic, Treeko), in my opinion. Too many of the new ones look like random doodles, like inanimate objects, or like monkeys. I don't like monkeys much. The legendaries look pretty cool, though.

Another thing: they finally got the camera moving! I'm not sure if it's been around since 4th generation, but it's new to me since I skipped D/P/Pl. Also, animated battlers look awesome, especially since they didn't wreck it with low-poly 3D models.

I can't give a full evaluation, since I got it, like, an hour ago, but I can safely say that it easily surpasses all previous generations already. It's a bit slow, but that might be because I'm used to 250-500&#37; speed on my emulator.

EDIT: @Evil Cake - Yep, the battles are pretty much the same, except they're nearly fully animated and the camera moves around. I'm still waiting for my guys to actually run up to the opponent and tackle them instead of having a hit thingy appear over them. Not even the 3D games did that, though (Colosseum, XD, and [I think] Battle Revolution).

If ypur friend has Black you probably can catch them all (as far as the Regional Dex goes).

I like Gen IVs starters myself, but I agree, this generations starters aren't too great, but they aren't the worst either.

Tiny bit starting with Platinum.

I asked in the wrong thread (oops).

Is it just me or is it slower going this time and tougher but a hell of a lot more places to rest your pokemon?
Leveling up pokemon is maddening slow imo.

Allso i have a legit Mew from some gamestop event last year some time in platinum so they arent as rare as youd think.

I love pokemon, I play competitively.
I played B+W in japanese when it 1st came out months ago just to get a glimpse of what it looked like, and I loved it.
I love the random wifi battling feature, 3 vs 3.

Only good starter is Snivy so that you can Choice Scarf, Leaf Storm abuse combo as Seperior.
Leaf Storm is broken with his hidden ability, Contrary, 140 base power + stab, lowers special atk by 2 stages but since he has Contrary, his attack goes up 2 stages every time you use it. So everytime you use Leaf Storm your attack doubles.
Can you say, sweep a whole team?
Only has 5pp so give him a PP Ups.

For the sake of argument...
Best starters are now:
Sceptile w/ sub + petaya berry
Blaziken, new dream world ability is Speed Boost, 1 Protect and his speed is unmatchable except vs a choice scarfer.
Swampert w/ Leftovers, immunity to electric, can learn earthquake, stealth rocks, waterfall, roar

Before Dream World in B+W, the best starters were-
Torterra is wack but Infernape and Empoleon are beast.

Infernape mixed sweeper set w/ life orb can dominate whole teams.
Empoleon w/ sub + petaya berry is epic + being steel/water gives him 11 resistances + 1 immunity.


I can't wait until I get White...

Maybe when I get it we can Wifi Battle guys?

jubeh
03-11-2011, 04:12 PM
Man the pacing of this game is whack sometimes.

So you beat a gym leader and you're like alright time to go to the next town. As soon as you walk out fucking cheren's like ITS TIME TO FIGHT BITCH.

But I just got done fighting my pokemon are hurt--

TOO BAD.

So after that you're like fuck and then you make one wrong turn and some guy's like HEY WE MADE EYE CONTACT LETS BATTLE even though you weren't even facing him. What the hell man.

And that electric cavern was awful. Just awful. I would get a random battle every two steps and I'm not exaggerating. I now have a bag just full of super repels.

Anyway what does stab mean I hear that often from the hardcore guys.

Jpg
03-11-2011, 09:47 PM
Anyway what does stab mean I hear that often from the hardcore guys.

Stab means Same-Type Attack Bonus. Which equals 50&#37; more damage.
IE...
If a Dragon-type and a Elec-type Pokemon both know Thunderbolt and they have the same special attack.
The Elec-type Pokemon's Thunderbolt will do 50% more damage than the Dragon-type Pokemon doing Thunderbolt.

Dragon's Thunderbolt does 90 base power, when super effective it does double so it does 180 base damage.
Elec's Thunderbolt does 135 base power, when super effective it does 265 base damage.
See why stab is so useful? :)

So Seperior's Leaf Storm has 140 Base power, with stab it does 50% more damage = 210 base damage, along with the increase of sp. attack 2 stages every time it hits, after 1 or 2 increases it can ohko almost anything(maybe except for a blissey).

jubeh
03-11-2011, 09:56 PM

Did anyone else get the Liberty Pass?

Honestly, I'm not even to the point in the game where I can use it. I've been running around Pinwheel Forest for a few days to level up my guys, but I got sick of Purrloin because it leveled up so slow, hated the way that beaver thing looked, and decided I needed a flier. I've been looking for that bug-type thing the one trainer had, but I can never find it. It's getting harder to remember their names. Even the retarded ones.

Another quibble I have is that I lost the Pick Up ability when Lillipup evolved, and that was how I got all my potions and such, since I'd long since beaten all the trainers in the area (who I've noticed are a lot of the times weaker than the wild Pokemon this time around).

I'm done ranting for now. The game's good, despite all I've said.

Psy I've been at work! I'm free for the rest of the day so if you get on tell me. I got a throh from some japanese guy but it was level 60 and had the shittiest moves so I need one of fairly low level. Also a sawk if you have one.

Anyway we should get all the friend codes into the op.

And it is just me or is the elite four in this game actually pretty fucking elite. The first chick owns me for free.

Edit; Wow just read the instruction manual. This game has ranked battles and stuff. So many features I did not know about. You can literally be the best that no one ever was.

and no reward for winning

You should go through the game only using lilipups.

Man, I actually had to grind to take them, totally pissed about that.

jubeh
03-13-2011, 09:06 PM
I used them for grinding purposes actually. As long as you beat one guy you will break even in terms of money. And the dark guy was really easy since I have a lot of fighting moves.

But yeah they are the hardest elite 4 so far imo. But then again I haven't played a lot of the games.

Hayashida

jubeh
03-14-2011, 01:17 PM
Yeah lee is right. See if you can find that guy because you get an emolga named minipete.

Edit: Lee are you talking about victini? Yeah that was a really dumb fight since all my dudes were like level 40.

Lee: It's in your pal pad.

Evil_Cake
03-14-2011, 04:52 PM
is there a quick way 2 evolve them

jubeh
03-14-2011, 04:52 PM

what he just wants a rocknrolla? these websites say he wants the 2nd form >_<

jubeh
03-14-2011, 05:05 PM
Oh he wants boldore eh. Um no the fastest way to level is to fight audios and I can't trade you one because it will evolve.

wolfman
03-14-2011, 05:48 PM
give it an everstone, thats how they stopped the traded haunter evolving in the earlier game
btw emolga cant actually learn fly so youll need something with flying anyway :/

Psy
03-14-2011, 06:55 PM
I think you can catch a bouldor in that electric cave place (I did anyhow and I have black) the cave after the 5th gym.

Evil_Cake
03-14-2011, 06:55 PM
ok I caught an emolga finally and I also caught a boldore in that electric cave...

so when u trade boldore it evolves? do u know any others like that

wolfman
03-14-2011, 07:23 PM
the really veiny fighting one

Evil_Cake
03-14-2011, 08:21 PM
also while going to get minipete, I caught another emolga from moving tall grass -_-

03-14-2011, 09:13 PM
i would use emolga if it could actually learn fly but i prefer the zebra, it learns fire charge for some reason O_o

Trade pokemon evolutions:

Karrablast to Escavlier(must be traded for a shelmet)
Shelmet to Accelgor(must be traded for a karrablast)
Gurdurr to Conkeldurr
Boldore to Gigalith

and thats all I know. Also, why did they remove the NPC rematch thing? That would make the game a hell of a lot less frustrating.

jubeh
03-15-2011, 12:04 AM
Posted this on my tumblr but it is relevant to this thread.


James ran out of usable pokemon.

James blacked out!

Wait…I what?

Even when I was an eight year old clutching my holographic Zapdos card I knew that blacking out from losing a pokemon battle was odd. It’s even more odd considering that the you (the main character) are the only one that does that. Any other trainer you beat just stands there after you beat them, glaring at you and wishing harm.

It’s even stranger that you lose money when you do this. Does this happen before you black out?

“Quick take this money before I-I…AGH”

Or do they pilfer your wallet while you’re writhing on the ground in some sort of epileptic poke-siezure?

It is worth noting that your character simply blacks out as opposed to having an actual blackout. This is described by wikipedia as, “a phenomenon caused by the intake of alcohol or other substance in which long term memory creation is impaired or there is a complete inability to recall the past.” But what if this is what the writer is trying to get across to you.

In a world with free, universal healthcare where people use magical animals to solve all of their problems is it so odd that a 10 year old boy or girl would be an alchoholic? Think about it, tumblr. Think about it.

Hey guys I'm back.
I'm back with black, haha. :)
I'm at the second gym.

My girlfriend said that when it comes to losing, a pokemon trainer is a lot like being a pirate.
"The captain must go down with the ship"

I guess I can see a Pokemon trainer in many ways being a lot like being a pirate.
Except for that whole raping, plundering and killing part(Damn you Nintendo!).

Other than that I think they have a lot of similarities.
I mean they both travel the world far and wide, and both don't take baths.

I allways have to be like at least 2 levels above the gym before im comfy enough to go and attempt the gym leader.

I used a repel for the first time and the damn thing didnt work. I was in some really tall grass and i kept getting into fights with wild pokemon. Do they just not work in the tallest grass?

Because there is no Asia or japan or Europe or anything other than kanto jhoto sinnoh and unova (to our knowledge for now anyways) the people in the games and anime can't be of a race from the real world.

Like you would think it'd be no biggy since all their mons have one type but they always have one move that destroys the guys that destroys their guys.

During that fight I would just search for the pokemon I was fighting on bulbapedia to see their weaknesses instead of trying to remember it all.

I just got a Darumaka, he's beast.

I wish that I didn't pick tepig as my starter...........Victini and Darumaka are better fire pokemon.

Fire/Fighting good type combination.
Snivy is the best but he looks so damn cocky.

I just got the 3 shiny legendary dogs(Level 30s) and Celebi(Level 50) from a friend.
I went into the Game Freak building with Celebi and got a level 10 Zorua.

Now I have to cross the desert to get to the 4th gym.

Is it worth anything to raise a Purrloin? Mine is awful but I like having a dark type. I feel like the patience will be worth it.

No it's really bad. Only the dream world Liepard is good, with prankster ability, but it's stats are fail.
Whimsicott/Erufuun is better user of Prankster, Leech Seed, Substitute, Protect, + better defenses and speed.

If you got the Celebi from Gamestop on the first day Black and White came out, you use the time machine to unlock a Zorua in the game.
