Why no 3DS version ??????Its3D
Black and White were on the DS. They don't want the generations to be split between two systems. If Black and White was on the 3DS Black and White 2 would've been on the 3DS.

Though 6th Generation is definitely going to be on the 3DS.

apparently challenge mode in Black2 doesn't unlock until you beat the champion. So there's really no point to it unless you can find someone to give you the key when you start the game

Yep.

Fans: "GameFreak, give us difficulty levels!"

GameFreak: "You guys need both games to unlock it!"

It's all about the money! :cry:

EDIT: It would have been much better if both keys were unlockable in the same version. If one person out of a group of friends owns Black 2, it wouldn't be fair if everyone but him/her get to experience Challenge Mode from the start. What if you want to help a friend, but both of you own Black 2? How could you assist him/her?

At least it'll be available during the post-game. Obviously, it's not as great as having it available throughout entire pre-E4 segment as well.

Having tougher trainers in the post-game is always a plus for grinding.

Maybe I'm missing something here or haven't researched it enough, but is there any way to get challenge mode on White 2? I'd prefer white 2 for the exclusives and the fact I got White first, but assist mode sounds really lame...

Do you have a friend who's getting black 2? I was planning on get white 2, but there's no way I need assist mode. I'll do the transfer thing you can do with a friend over wireless when we both finish the main game.

#566 Posted by Defy_The_Fallen (621 posts) -

@moltenixSeeing as your Avatar's Keldeo, you must know a bit about it right? :P

Firstly, do you have one? If you do I am the most jealous person in the world right now:o

If not, do you have any ideas as to when EU/US will be able to get it? I actually considering asking my parents to let us take a trip to japan so I could get Keldeo:|

#567 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4705 posts) -

We will get Keldeo and Meloetta by the end of the year, sometime near the release of Black 2 and White 2.

Genesect will be next year, whenever the 16th movie comes out.

Haha yes, I know him IRL. I we'll be getting the new 5th gen pokemon as events, but I still need Deoxys, Celebi, Shaymin and jirachi. Hopefully there are more events. Why in the hell did they give us a mewtwo when it's easily available 4 games...
#569 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4705 posts) -

Especially Deoxys. Even though I have the one from 2008, it would be nice if we have another event. One that doesn't require you to go to a Gamestop store. :x

Anyway, I think I'm ready for Black 2 and White 2.

Anybody know what the bottom screen is used for in the new games? Please not that C-Gear garbage. I want the watch or HG/SS menu back. The c-gear does nothing for me and the bottom screen wasted. At least give us an option to choose the menu or not.
#573 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4705 posts) -

It's C-Gear again. Same features as before, but with a different design.

I really miss the Poketch. It was really useful. Or that button that allowed auto-run in HG/SS.

Oh god... I hate that POS, as you can tell. Only 1/3 of your market is Japan, Nintendo. The rest of us live in places where people generally don't even play Pokemon. The upstars of the pokecenter was fine for battles with my friends... waste of a bottom screen...
#575 Posted by Defy_The_Fallen (621 posts) -

Just to change the topic to Black and White 1 for a second, has the Darkrai event worked for anyone? My game isn't picking anything up on mystery gift.

#576 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4705 posts) -

The Darkrai event ended last month. :(

Ghost-type Pokemon have the creepiest Japanese pokedex entries

Banette: A discarded stuffed animal became a grudge-filled Pokemon. It is searching for the child who discarded it.

Drifloon: It's said to be a guidepost for souls. Children who've owned a Drifloon vanish without warning.

and the new key item, Shining Charm shiningcharm.png, increases the chances of encountering a shiny pokemon by... 300%! :D
Unfortunately, a 300% increase is still extremely low. From 1 in 8192 encounters to 1 in 2371 encounters.
At least it's something. :P Don't you agree, Captain Falcon?

Anyways, yeah, I'm so happy you get something for completing the dex now! That's always been one of my pet peeves with the games, you go through all that work for a pat on the back from Oak and bragging rights.

I've been playing Rotation battles online. It's so fun! And I'm really good at it! :P

They really are! I remember getting addicted to them when I started using Choice items. :P

It's a shame that Rotation and Triple battles weren't taken to their full potential in BW1. Cress, Chili, and Cilan would have been perfect candidates for a Triple/Rotation Gym Battle, just like how Tate and Liza were the first and only Double Battle Gym Leaders.

Not sure if this has been asked in the past thirty pages but does anyone know if since this was in development after the 3DS had launched if it will play in an appropriate resolution on the 3DS or if it will be stretched liked all the other DS games?

I can only assume it would be stretched, otherwise it would cause some problems for the original DS's. It must have been in developement after or shortly before because the 3DS only came out a week after the first two titles.

#589 Posted by Defy_The_Fallen (621 posts) -

Just have to put this out there, just listening to the soundtrack on youtube makes me so happy. I think this could easily be the best pokémon game ever created, I'm so pumped up for this right now! Words on the internet can't describe it! Maybe this describes my excitement when listening to the soundtrack...

Also, do you re-visit other regions? There's a lot of tracks like 'Sinnoh Lake' and 'Rustboro City' on the soundtrack, I doubt this is true though. I just don't see how they'd be implemented any other way...

#590 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4705 posts) -

LightningFlamez

Around 20 - 30 hours. Depends on how you play the game (casually or speedrun) and whether or not you were given the Challenge difficulty key. For the Challenge difficulty key, you will need someone who has beaten Black 2 to give it to you. It must be done via infrared (no wi-fi).

[spoiler] Mesprit, Uxie and Azelf can be caught in the games. I have no idea why there's a techno remix for Rustboro City. It could be one of those unused tracks.

GameFreak pretty much went all-out with the music. Just hear the quality difference between BW1's Title Music and BW2's Title Music. :D [/spoiler]

#591 Posted by trugs26 (5296 posts) -

Hi guys. Just a question about the challenge/assist mode:

Since Black 2 gets the challenge mode to give on completion of the game (using IR), and White 2 gets the assist mode to give, does that mean;
1. You can get both assist and challenge mode on one cart, assuming that you have 2 friends with both versions, and both friends complete the game and give it to you.
2. Or, if you have Black 2, you can only be given assist mode from a completed White 2 version. And vice versa
3. Or, if you have Black 2, you can only be given challenge mode from a completed Black 2 version. And vice versa.
4. Or, upon finishing the game, you get the allocated version (Assist for W2, Challenge for B2), and you have the ability to give it away to a friend as well. And if this is the case, does this follow any of the restrictions of points 2 or 3?

Thanks in advance for any responses.

trugs26

Someone correct me if i'm wrong but:

When you beat the Champion, you unlock either Challenge/Assist key for your current save game.

Once you've unlocked the key, you can activate it for your game to use it during post-E4 gameplay. You can also "share" it with your friends regardless of which version they have or where they are in the game. e.g. You could share with someone the Challenge key in either Black or White 2 so that they could play through the main story in Challenge mode.
