I'm trying to keep away from all the spoilers so i'm majorly surprised when I see the stuff in the actual game :D

For now I'm just playing Pokemon White and Pokemon Conquest to fill the time:lol:

Keep caution while browsing Youtube. It's going to be filled with spoilers for the next few days. :P

The only theme that matters to me is here, spoiler Can't wait till my own copy gets here.

#455 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

OMG, the music IS awesome! :shock:

The World Tourny music is so nostalgic. :P

Suddenly the shorter wait than usual doesn't seem all that short...

#456 Posted by gpuFX16 (1296 posts) -

I'm in complete agreement. I like Pokemon music to begin with, but these arragements are just great stuff.

Glad I have even better reasons to use Arcanine. I had trouble using him well in DP but once he got CC in BW it was a lot easier. :P Now with Outrage... he get's perfect coverage just from CC and Outrage, then you can just go with STAB Flare Blitz and Extremespeed for priority. He won't be broken, but he'll be formidable, that's for sure.

I'm liking Articuno getting Hurricane personally. It doesn't help much, but it does give a really powerful STAB that will hit most switch ins for at least neutral damage and with how dominate fighting is, it never hurts to have something that can take them out. Moltres gets it too, but nobody likes Moltres. :P

Power Split Claydol could be interesting.

Gliscor just hit another level of annoying with Sky Uppercut.

That music... is so good I'm at a loss for words.

Edit: I'd like to point out these are actually GREAT remixes, I really thought heartgold and soulsilver had some good, but a LOT of badly done remixed music that strayed to far from the originals IMO, the firered/leafgreen sevi island music were johto remixes and they were superb.

#466 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4745 posts) -

HOLY ... !

Pokemon Smash was right... Kyurem is the strongest Dragon pokemon when combined with Zekrom or Reshiram. :shock:

Stats:

[spoiler]

Black Kyurem:

HP - 125
Attack - 170
Defense - 100
Sp.Attk - 120
Sp.Def - 90
Speed - 95
Base Stat Total: 700

White Kyurem:

HP - 125
Attack - 120
Defense - 90
Sp.Attk - 170
Sp.Def - 100
Speed - 95
Base Stat Total: 700

That's the second highest base stat total, right below Arceus' 720 total. :shock:

Apparently it's a decently popular Internet meme for the RSE remakes.
#468 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

Serebii has updated the Exclusive Pokemon page for B2W2.

So it looks like the the Unova exclusives are the same as in BW aside from Zekrom and Reshiram switching. I'm not sure which I want now. I'm kinda thinking Black 2 since I owned the original White version; plus I get Heracross! :D

#469 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4745 posts) -

I'm still getting Black 2 even though I prefer White 2's exclusives and location differences. :P

I wonder what's next for Pokémon...
Remaking Ruby and Sapphire seems less likely now. Half of the Hoenn legendaries are available in B2W2 and you can get the rest via HGSS. You can also challenge all Hoenn Gym Leaders and Champions in World Tournament. It feels like they're wrapping up Gen V and will directly go to Gen VI.

Gen 6 on 3DS FTW! :D

Who used Tepig on Black or White? I was just wondering what you thought of him, I've used both oshawott and snivy but I was thinking of using Tepig for White 2 :)

#472 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11732 posts) -

I wish they made some changes to the starters. Even though they look ok they are actually really bad Pokemon.

I thought they were decent, but they could have been better. 344

I hope the Gen VI starters do not disappoint. If we get another Fire/Fighting starter, I WILL RAGE!!! :evil::evil::evil:

Gen V was the only time I looked at the starters and saw nothing to like. "Ehh... ok I'll choose this one, I guess." And looks like I'm not the only one tired of the Fire/Fighting streak. Emboar looks more the part of Fire/Dark imo.

Defy_The_Fallen

Tepig owns.

#476 Posted by moltenix (2485 posts) -

I dunno if I even want to use a starter this time.

There's so many other Pokemon to choose from; the starters just don't seem as great in comparison.

I'm trading my Oshawott in for a Piplup. :D

Emboar is too fragile even with its large HP.

I recently started playing, your rival ended up nicer than I thought he was going to be. I thought he was going to be similar to your one in Gold/Silver, but nope.

Are there any new pokemon, besides the different forms in B/W2?

The new Unova pokedex entries have been translated, and some of them are... dreadful. :?

[spoiler]

Scolipede: It grips prey with the claws on its neck, and after restricting its movement, injects it with deadly poison to finish the job.

Yamask: The soul of a person who was buried in a tomb transformed into a Pokemon. It retains its memories from before it died.

Cof@grigus: It takes grave robbers who draw near, mistaking it for a real coffin, and locks them inside its body.

Gothorita: There are many accounts of it controlling and playing with sleeping children on nights when the starlight shines.

Gothitelle: It reads the future from the movement of the stars. A Gothitelle that found out its Trainer's lifespan will scream and mourn.

Frillish: It wraps prey in its bell-like arms, paralyzes it, and kills it by carrying it to the ocean floor, 8000 meters below.

Klang: It split into a mini gear and huge gear. If the mini gear is hurled as an attack but doesn't return, it dies.

Lampent: It sucks up souls to stoke its flame. It hangs around in hospitals waiting for people to die.

Heatmor: It converts the air taken in through its tail into flames, then uses them like a tongue to melt Durant and eat them. [/spoiler]

Ok, i'm confused about this new Challenge mode...

So apparently, you receive the Challenge key after beating B2 and the Assist key after beating W2. You can link with another game to receive different keys for your game.

I also noticed that Serebii added some info for the gym leaders in Challenge mode. So i'm guessing if I got Black 2 and defeat the E4, i'll get the Challenge key unlocked. But is the key tied to a save or the actual cartirdge. Can I reset and play the whole game through on Challenge mode with a new save? Or do I need a separate game card, start a new game and link the key over?

Either way:

1. I'm totally getting Black 2.

2. This is such a stupid idea. Just let us select a difficulty setting from the beginning...

From the looks of it, it's tied to the save. But a save that has it can send it to another game regardless of the latter's progress. So presumably you'd need a second game with Challenge Mode already unlocked to send you the key in the beginning if you wanted to play it through the whole game.

What the heck!! :evil::evil::evil:

I wonder if you can send keys to people via WiFi or if it's just a local wireless thing (probably is... :roll: ).

Local Wireless (IR). -____-

I'm currently reading about it. I can not comprehend the logic behind this.

*continues reading*

This is only beneficial for those who buy both games or have friends with the opposite version... >:O

I'm wondering if White 2 can send Challenge Mode Keys after unlocking it. If so, I can just restart after I link with my friend.

#496 Posted by sonictrainer (15184 posts) -

The Medals list is up on Serebii.net

#497 Posted by metroidfood (11173 posts) -

Has anyone seen the Hidden Hollows list on Serebii? Many Pokemon with Hidden Abilities in the game, including Imposter Ditto! :D

And from the looks of the items list, berry-growing might be back (please oh please).

#498 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4745 posts) -

I am definitely searching for that Hidden Hollow Bagon.

Salamence with Moxie... :twisted:

This is a pathetic idea to get people to want both versions. I can understand exclusive areas and Pokemon and the whole trade/connect with your friends philosophy but difficulty settings?! You've got to be kidding me!

At least I can enjoy Challenge mode for the post-game in Black 2 without connecting.

Speaking of challenge, i'm loving the whole medals feature they added. I don't usually give a damn about trophies for my PS3 games but it might be fun trying to get all these medals. However, i'm noticing a lot of medals that involve things like Fes Missions, Join Avenue, etc. Don't we need to connect with other games for those features? :|
