Woah woah man, isn’t Preschooler Jose the kid from the Battle Subway with the incredibly inspirational “A hero never quits, a hero never dies” quote? If so, it’s no surprise. If not, Jose’s probably the inspirational kid’s little brother.

Well I’ve just got White 2 today, so here’s my party I guess:
>Flaffy lv15
>Lillipup lv15
>Koffing (Dogars) lv15
>Riolu lv15
>Snivy lv16

I have a Pidove as well, but I’m not training that one. Just beat the Virbank gym and I made a big deal of muting the volume upon entering. I also try to level up my pokemon 5 levels every few routes.

Nice Random, I too have a Koffing named Dogars. Just beat Clay. Dogars was Levitating like a champ. Current team:

Dewott the Dewott, lv31 to be replaced by Staryu
Eugene the Dwebble, lv 31
Ronald the Scraggy, lv 32
Dogars the Koffing, lv 31
Albert the Growlithe, lv 32
Mark the Magneton, lv 31

Couldn’t resist.

EDIT: Waaaaaait a minute, I just now realized that almost everyone on my team is either round or orange. I swear I didn’t mean to do that.

I drew my main 3 dudes.

My Leavanny is a samurai with a Leaf Blade. Get it? Leaf Blade? As in the attack of which Leavannys have? Man, I’m funny.

Oct 11, 2012 at 09:50PM EDT

Okay, now I have a Level 20 Male Eevee and is now in Marill’s place in the party.

Just picked up Black 2 today

I kinda wanted White 2, but B2 was the only one Best Buy still had copies of. Also, you’d think Best Buy would have the sense to put copies of the game right next to the cardboard display of it instead of on the other side of the frikin gaming section

It’s Best Buy. Logic escapes them.

Now, can some of you help me out? I’ll be getting a DSi (XL) soon and I wanted to know what versions are better without spoilers, or if there are enough differences to make it worth getting both.

Black vs. White
Black 2 vs. White 2

Planning on getting these:

Crystal (Nostalgia)
Ruby (Never was a fan of the Battle Frontier)
FireRed
Diamond
Platinum
SoulSilver
Either Black/White
Either Black2/White2
Ranger
PMD: Explorers of Sky

Thanks. Anything like that for Black/White? Or are they close enough?

Version-exclusive Pokemon don’t really matter much to me beyond Diamond as I don’t know any of them.

I don’t know of anything like that for Black and White, but they’re pretty close.

Be aware: the DSi has no GBA slot, and the vanilla DS/DS Lite cannot run GBC. Otherwise, excellent choices.

No GBA slot? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE, NINTENDO?!

Well, I still have my old Advance, but I was really looking towards having a backlight.

Now hold on, the lite still has the GBA slot (if you can find one anymore). I always felt the lite was just the right size, too. However, it doesn’t have the amenities that the DSi has.

Also-

Boy I’ve had backlighting since I’ve had a GBA.

I’ve had two SPs, one of which was left in California on a trip, along with Emerald inside it, and the other one was stolen. So yeah, I’m not really after a SP again.

Yes.

Also along with my Pokemon cards question, how well does Black and White 1 & 2 stand? I haven’t gotten a chance to play them yet, but I plan on getting them after Nintendo releases a Green 3DS.

Adam, I have some advice.

Find every single EV raising item.
Use it on Snivy.

Use them all on Snivy.

I don’t mean to be rude Adam, but how is it that you are taking so long? Are you not playing often, exploring everything? I mean, I have only about 43 hours played and I’m already done the elite four and level ~70.

Snivy is shit unless you have it’s dream world ability, which goes oh so sexily with Leaf Storm. Also guys, remember to download Genesect through the Mystery Gift, I got it. I dont use it, but I have it.

My Team
Samurott M (i have a laptop dont judge me) Lv 39
Lucario M lv 34
Crobat M lv 34
Electabuzz M lv 35
Elgyem M lv 33

I’m going to try and get most of my team to late 30s or early 40s so Skyla wont have a chance against Electabuzz

After a weekend of (slightly less than) vigorous playing, I have just beat Elesa. Here’s my new team:
Crobat lv 25
Eevee lv 25 (training to become Espeon)
Lucario lv 25
Servine lv 26
Flaffy lv 25
Trapinch lv 27

My Eevee is my weakest, and my Lucario is my strongest. Also, may I ask what everyone thinks of Join Avenue and the medals? I really want to know what others think of them.

Bascially I’m trying to explore everything. I want to complete the dex all as possible and level up my party to be able to beat Gym leaders.

Update time: I’m currently exploring Spooky Manor (or whatever that ghost building is called)
My team is now:
Ralph the Lucario lv. 36
Ghostly the Cofagarius lv. 35
Simon the Arcanine lv. 35
Zappy the Jolteon lv. 42 (Skyla didn’t get a single attack in)
Fitzgerald the Samurott lv. 36
Fly Mule the Tranquill lv. 26 (not training him)
I have 2 stone evolution Pokemon, which I don’t normally use in Pokemon games.

I’ve finally assembled my final in-game team. There’s a distinct lack of Fly, but biking’s good cardio.

Albert the Arcanine
Mark the Magnezone
Lenny the Starmie
Ronald the Scrafty
Eugene the Crustle
and Dogars the Weezing

So yeah, the entire team’s either orange or round. I swear it’s a coincidence.

Just wanted to point out Weezing’s Japanese name is “Matadogas”. I was going to keep my Dogars, and give it an everstone, but I really wanted an Eevee so I could get an Espeon (Which just evolved now actually).

Y’know, Eviolite Dogars might be pretty useful. I’m still keeping Dogars’ name the same out of respect for the lost beauty of D-O-G-A-R-S- DOGARS though.

Move set conundrum: Cofagrigus has room for either Shadow Ball or Hex, but not both. Shadow ball is 15 pp and 85 power. Hex is 10pp and 50 power, but it becomes 100 power when the opponent has a special condition, which is particularly nice when combo’d with Willow-the-Wisp.
Wat do?

If you have someone else on your team who can deal out status problems, or better yet something running Toxic Spikes, go for Hex. If not, Shadow Ball. By the time you set up the burn, you could’ve hit ‘em with two Shadow Balls, and no one’s gonna send a physical attacker against a Cofagrigus anyway, so you’ll be taking heavy special damage in the meantime. Go Shadow Ball unless you have status support from teammates.

KYM I have a problem. You see, I had beat clay, and had just got HM Surf, when it struck me: none of my party can learn it. If it was something like cut, I wouldn’t care, but Surf is an incredibly important move for any journey. Now this is where two problems arise:
1. I have spent lot’s of time and effort training my current team to what they are like now, so I am
not fond of getting rid of any.
2. Even if I did, I was never over-keen on HM Slaves, so I’d want a pokemon that can stand up to the rest of my team.
This is where I ask 2 things, 1. Do you know of any good water types that I can train up that are pretty good? and 2. What member of my party should leave my company? Here’s my current team

Espeon lv27
Crobat lv28
Servine lv29
Trapinch lv29
Lucario lv28
Ampharos lv30

Please help.

@Random

Personally, Jellicent is one of the best surfers out there. I’d swap one for Ampharos or Espeon.

Thanks!
I went with Shadow Ball in the end. Now I’m trying to catch the Grass/Fighting legendary. Giga-drain makes it quite hard to keep his hp down, though not nearly as tough as Mewtwo with recover was in R/B/FR/LG was.

Maybe use something with Heal Block? That, or just spam sleep moves.

This. A psychic-type with Hypnosis would be an ideal Pokemon in this battle. Hypnosis to prevent Giga Drain, Psychic to exploit his Fighting-type.

‘Course, I haven’t played gen 5, so I don’t even know what legendary you’re talking about.

“A level 100 Shuckle can potentially deal the most damage in one single attack through the use of numerous stat boosters; by using Helping Hand by two different Pokémon in a Triple battle, holding a Metronome, Power Trick, a Skill Swap to Pure Power or Huge Power, 6 Attack boosts, and a Mimicked Me First used on a slower Pokemon using the Defense Curl/Rollout combo. Also, Shuckle’s partner must have the ability Flower Gift and the weather must be sunny. On the 15th turn of using Rollout consecutively without any misses, if used against a level 1 Ledyba, Yanma or Combee with minimum Defense stats, that have been hit with negative Defense modifiers (such as Screech), it can deal 481,266,036 damage with a critical hit.”

I made this badass Pokéfact my Facebook status once.

This fun fact used to be in Shuckle’s trivia section on Bulbapedia, but seems to have vanished…

I just beat the Pokemon League.

Reptar the Flygon lv. 63 Reptar is the giant dragonsaur from Rugrats, and mascot for TDWP.
Aerodyne the Flygon lv. 60 Named after band Aerodyne Flex, and Aerodyne sounds like a dragon.
Arium the Aggron lv. 57 Name started with “Ar” (Aron) added “ium” because elements.
Wailarge the Wailord lv. 56 It is a whale, and it is large.
Whisper the Chandelure lv. 56 Just a kickass name for a ghost Pokemon.
Webzz the Galvantula lv. 58 Writers block, and caught as a fill-in. (Though Joltik is amzingly cute!)

I will be replacing Webzz with my SoulSilver:
Tenozone the Rayquaza lv.100 Tenoh (King) and Ozone (Where Rayquaza lives)

This will be my post game team, minus Whisper, because I have to choose a replacement.

The World Tournament is a bitch.

Well then, off to find a Metagross and another Pseudo-Legendary Pokemon.
I already have a Garchomp.

Pokerus helps a bit, but my other Pokemon are still weak.

My DS is broken guys. DS Lite with loose hinge (glides smoothly) and it just recently got the White Screen of Death. Trying to fix it by Friday when I have time to get BW2, but I know that probably won’t happen.
