Pokémon Black/White in-game discussion

does anybody know of any good threads to really start learning about RNGing? basically right from the start sort of teaching, i hardly know any, except what i learned from getting a near perfect mudkip fourth generation. i believe it's changed quite drastically since then though
 
I second Blitzle. Herdier is pretty incredible, and I found that Blitzle seriously lagged behind as I got farther in... in fact, as soon as it evolved, it landed in Box 1 and never came back out ;)

If you find yourself hurting for an electric type later, Joltik in the chargestone cave is pretty amazing. He's very, very fast! :)
 
There's a guy on Route 17, in the house where you get the Larvesta egg, who seems to be looking for a certain item from you, and is willing to offer something (don't know what) in exchange. And the game is retarded because they don't even tell you what he's looking for, whenever I talk to him all he says is something along the lines of "oh let me see if you have anything interesting in your bag... oh no sorry, please come back when you do." Well how helpful -_-

Anyone know what the hell he wants? It's the shady guy with sunglasses in the back right of the room...
 
From personal experience he sucks big time, I tried hard to evolve him, then I boxed him, for life, until I needed a flyer
I have found that Archeops is a better flier, you need to evolve him however
 
How unusable is Unfezant? I really like him and am thinking about using him in my next run through...
Ingame it's an amazing pokemon. That's my opinion and I stick by it.
It should not be low tier.

It has a great 105 attack, 95 speed base stat when evolved. Super luck is a good ability.

You'll do just fine with air cutter until you reach nimbassa city to get return, next town you get fly.

With a final set of Return, Fly, Work up and Roost it decimates opposition. Of course, you shouldn't let it fight rock, steel or electric types.
 
I've been trying to reset for a decent Kyurem lately (cbf to RNG) and found a Mild one with a 31 IV in SpA :D :D :D :D

Then I saw his 0,1 and 8 or 9 in Attack, Special Defence and Speed respectively.
 
The problem with Pidove & co. is that it until you get it the appropriate moves, it has to put up with only having Air Cutter as a good move...Off Base 36 Sp. Attack (50 in Tranquill's case) & it also has some pretty bad Defences as well. That's the main problem.

Unrelated, but I've been having some good luck of late; caught Pokerus by chance 2 Days ago, & I caught a Shiny Swellow a few hours ago in a random encounter. She has some good stats, but she has a Docile Nature...EV Trained it anyway. My party of Serperior/Scrafty/Carracosta/Cofagrigus/Galvantula/Vanilluxe is still doing well since beating N, they're in their mid 50's, & I did manage to get Cynthia down to two Pokemon once after Serperior nearly put off a +6 Coil Sweep...

According to the official guide, that shady guy buys Rare Bones from you. One of the many ways of making easy money in these games.
 
i am loving the game so far, i am up to twist moutain and i have a team of level 40

samurott - the tank and surfer
fraxure - the kid that i have high hopes for
darmanitan - the massive nuker
archeops - the flyer and grass-killer
excadrill - the last-resort heavy artillery

i found the ferris wheel with the office lady a bit jarring, considering the character can't be much older than 14 and there's massive romantic undertones in that little scene but otherwise the dialogue's great
 
I have to say I love the way the daycare is handled. It gives a nice up and down biking stretch, and when there's an egg, the guy will call out for you. Perfect.

Hatched an Adamant DDance Larvitar with reasonable IV's, so I'm happy.
 
Is it just my luck, or is the chance of getting a shiny via breeding increased in this gen?

Most of the pokemon I've bread so far has hatched shiny at least once (sure they don't have great IV's but that's not my point). I haven't found any data to suggest that the chance to obtain a shiny has increased but it's possible.

I agree.
Only, the strip is a little short for my liking. D/P/Pt really had the best strip to ride about. I also loved the poketech app. more than this, because if you aren't paying attention, you might miss his calling out and have wasted quite an amount of steps.

he actually causes a text box; there's no way to miss it.
