Pokémon Black/White in-game discussion

Yeah i'm gonna keep this one. It will be a fine bulk up sweeper. The chances of getting 31s in hp/def/spdef again are too low to worry about a measly 10 attack points.

With max hp, I can hit 369 attack and 200 spdef, or 350 attack and 217 spdef. There's no point in maxing special defense while i'm adamant. I wanna put that nature to good use. Not sure which configuration I should shoot for yet.

Actually, max special defense with adamant is love ._.u
370 HP, 370 Atk, 240 Def, and 220 Special Defense is hands down the best spread ever, kudos to whoever devised it here at Smogon. My IVs were 31/31/20/x/31/2, Brave. I'm thinking of making it a trick room sweeper. <3
 
Well after 8 days or so, I finally caught my near flawless Reshiram (30 SpD, but eh), so I can finally go on with story mode XD

So after all's said and done, ended up with the following after beating N/whoever:

Lv 51 Samurott
Lv 50 Reshiram
Lv 49 Excadrill
Lv 49 Darmanitan
Lv 49 Sawk
Lv 48 Galvantula

In terms of upgrading the in-game team, I think I'll do the following:

-Catch Fraxurus (or whatever its Stage 1 name is at Victory Road) and evolve it to Haxorus for something with False Swipe to catch in-game Pokemon with, as well as for a decent sweeper with DD. Replace Reshiram since I can't properly EV train it since I need to axe off whatever EVs the stupid Zekrom and Cofangrius gave it...boo

-Try grabbing a Starmie out of the water along Rt. 13 (always loved Starmie since R/B), replace Galvantula with it.

-Grab the Larvesta Egg (rng it if possible? If so, EV train it as well) and train up a Volcarona for in-game use. Tough call, but probably ditch Sawk for it if I opt to get it, or maybe Darmanitan due to type redundancy...or, this could also be used in Starmie's spot if I can RNG it...

Other than that, just gotta figure out breeding, move over some of my old beloved Pokemon, and have fun with the end-game I guess. And eventually buy White I guess.
 
Just have to say that personally, this has been the greatest and most immersive game I've ever played (albeit, I haven't played many games...I'm more of a Pokemon player than anything else). For the most part, the storyline differs from Pokemon's cliche'd 'Evil Corporation Trying To Take Over The World By Brute Force', and it actually makes sense that the Policemen you see are doing nothing about Team Plasma's dubious activities this time round. The character of Ghetsis is, although a stereotype, a very underused stereotype and one that still sends shivers down my spine. N is just awesome, the ending makes me (nearly) cry. All in all, this game deserves every single kudos it can get.

Onto my playthrough.

I bought both Black and White, and I've finished Black just about (FUCKING MUSICALS NOT BEING AS GOOD AS CONTESTS), so I've started my White playthrough. I destroyed the Elite Four in Black with a team of
Scrafty (51)
Samurott (49)
Darmanitan (48)
Excadrill (50)
Haxorus (50)
Seriously, those four raep. In White, I've just beaten the Fifth Gym and have a team that consists of
Pignite (32)
Duosion (33 AND BOLD WITH MAGIC GUARD)
Conkeldurr (31)
Ferroseed (30)
Deino (38 [I traded it from my Black...I just wanted a little Zweilous for the E4. I caught a Naive, and I just had to use it]).

The only criticism I have for the game is that it's a little too easy. It doesn't detract from the fun at all, but the hardest Gym for me was like the easiest Gym in Platinum. But it's only a little thing...
Also, I got a Shiny Pawniard on my first runthrough of Black! Too bad I couldn't use it (fucking Modest), but still...
 
alriiight caught a terakion with 29 ivs in attack and speed, the other ivs are useless but i compared them and its as bulky as a perfect venasaur and more specially bulky than a latios in sand so i'm pretty happy. time to ev train then beat that n whore
 
370 HP, 370 Atk, 240 Def, and 220 Special Defense is hands down the best spread ever
I can hit those numbers with mine and I still have 38 EVs left. Guess i'll throw them into HP because that seems kind of low, doesn't it? I'll take your word that it's the best spread because I was always running the mindless 252hp/252spdef careful on PO, but now that I hatched a killer adamant one, i'm in the dark. Thanks for the tip!
 
Still RNGing Cobalion. I've hit my seed four times now, and my synchroniser has never worked; so I've ended up seeing Rash, Sassy, Adamant and Bold Cobalions. This would be a lot easier if my delay wasn't over seven minutes long...
 
I'm utterly hating nidorans now. I'm trying to breed a modest hustle male nidoran with decent IV's and it's HELL!

50% chance on a male
50% chance on modest
50% chance on hustle
And after that lovely game of chance, it has to select speed as an IV to pass on (sp.att is power item'd).

I'm personally responsible for any outbreaks of nidoran -.-'
 
Ok, beat the league, this was my team
Samurott lv50, hasty
Scrafty lv50, bashful
Archeops lv 50, jolly
Haxorus lv49, naughty
Galvantula lv 48, docile
Victini lv 48, docile

Right now I'm exploring the Dreamyard
 
WTF happens post E4. I fought a trainer who had all pokes of lvl 63. Spoken of a level-jump.. Anyway, I like the ending of the story, great daily events, decent postgame structure. Only problem, I just can't ride that bike fluently. Anyone else has that problem too?

I hate riding the bike in this game. i prefer having more control and just running around Routes. Only time I bike is to hatch eggs.
 
Also, a lot of the trainers use NFE or otherwise bad Pokémon, so you can usually handle them despite the higher level. Then I ran into that trainer with a Lapras...
I literally almost got completely wiped out by a trainer in challenger's cave with a team of gyarados, snorlax, and 4 other pretty powerful people I can't remember at the moment all at level 65 or so. I had to spam max revives and full restores just to stagger away from the guy all because I decided to go get the tm for stone edge...

I remember fighting that one too. Probably the best trainer that isn't a rival/champion/E4 member/Cynthia/ etc.
 
Made it to the 8th gym now. Whipped the Ice gym's ass without breaking a sweat mostly due the fire bamboo. Used it's pre-evo form which was at level 31 and came back out with a level 39/40 Darmanitan and a badge. Right now I'm thinking of either going back and RNG on that damn Victini or go try it on Cobalion. Either way RNG is a major pain in the ass to do.

BTW, what levels were you guys at when you fought Iris/Drayen?
