    Finally finished the national Pokedex... sheesh, beat the league at 25 hours. Dex was finished at 125 hours.
    And that's JUST while hunting in W2, not counting the time spent on other games getting Pokemon I can't catch in W2.
    100 hours for more shinies? WORTH IT

    I think Flygon is the only one you can get at that point. I'm using one on my team right now and he's decent.

    I haven't seen a shiny since the original silver, when I caught a Shiny Hoothoot and Dunsparce (and of course Gyrados).

In general, opponents other than the Champion and Ghetsis in B/W2 don't have good speeds on their pokemon making Emboar viable. But he'll be a goner easily in say, the PWT. Also, Genesect OP, I tried not to go with 600 base stat pokemon.
    I did not have the option to start on challenge mode. I may do this with white as I have both versions. I usually beat one, take a bit of a break with something else and then move to another version.

    A lot of people complain about legendaries on the main team, but I have no problem with it. Genesect is strong, but far from OP. A fast fire type and he's as good as 1 shot.

    Genesect can't really take advantage of it's amazing typing due to it's defense. Bug and Steel aren't the best offensive types as they have rarely any good special attacking bug or steel moves.

    So I come home from to work to find out my brother got White 2 so the two of us sit down and play to the first gym. Get to Cheren with each of us having only a LV 14 starter (me: Tepig/bro: Snivy).

    -Little brother uses Growth and sweeps him easy. I taught him well.
    -I proceed to get Tail Whip'd and Work Up'd to death. It's like this game hates me.
    Men!

    Just picked up Black 2 over the weekend. Made it through the first gym. Was nice to see it not be a tutorial pushover. Trying to decide if I should go with a challenge team or not (something like lowest stat pokemon or whatnot).

    Bug Buzz, X-Scissor, Iron Head ? All of them are fairly strong, and Genesect's Atk and Sp. Atk are quite decent (both of them 120 base), also, a 99 speed is very good too (of course IVs and Nature matter too). Either way, I doubt you'll find any pokemon outspeeding it during the main story especially if not on challenge mode.

    Zweilous can be found in Victory Road if you really want one but it evolves into a Hydreigon at level 64, not highly recommended for main story finishing as you're not likely to get your pokemon to that level anyway, if you're raising 6 at a time.

    But yeah, Haxorus works really well, 1 Dragon Dance and then roflstomp through everything.

    I getting Pokemon Black v2 for my birthday, I haven't played since I beat Red, Blue, Yellow. I understand that Pokemon now isn't like anything I have played before.

    What do I need to know?

    What do I need to know?

    Moves are now physical (melee) and speciel (elemental/ranged). That is the biggest thing, cause this useally means inn 9 out off 10 cases that using Fireblast on you're fightning type pokemon aint worth it, cause its Sp. Atk state is to low, to let it hit for much. So only use physical attacks for physical pokemons, UNLESS the pokemon has 100 atk and sp. atk - Then multi-attacks can work (Good examples are most Legendaries, Lucario).

    You're hole team you play the game trough...enjoy that team for what it is, cause once you're done completing the game, there essentially useless.

    This is where you haft to decide if you even care about pokemon games much, and want to continue. Building a good-trained team is atleast 20-50 hours work the first time. You first get like 100 battle points witch are easy enough to get, just takes time, to buy EV-items. Then you begin breed pokemons for right nature and so on, and then you equip hold item for EV training, and kill about 30 pokemons that gives to +atk. This is very simplified version.

    This is an example of my Lucario. First of all it got an abbility (Some abblities are crap, other abblities are game-breaking, and if you dont get X pokemon with its right abblity its pointless, other abblities makes you build the pokemon around it etc), its hidden-stats or just IV's are good for physical attacks such as Close combat, its EV's are trained for attack and speed, and the nature furthere increases attack state by 10% and lower its sp.Atk state by 10%.


    Edit: Will suggest you read trough most pages inn this thread, many people included moi posted some stuff. I did a complete list of usefull pokemons for in-game teams, you can get easly while playing the game. I personally made a OK competive team just by using in-game pokemons, its very possibely to get a good team even for online stuff, by not going out of you're ways, trading etc.

    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    So, we've had the games for about a month or two now. Does anyone have any regrets? Whether it be from not RNGing that Genesect to picking the wrong starter, or choosing the other version of the game, I bet we all have a few. Mine are:
    Picking Oshawott as a starter. It has a bad design, and was sub par in battle. Snivy can learn growth and coil, and has a better design. Tepig let me blitz through B1 very quickly.
    I was so terribly useless at the storyline that I traded some pokemon over from B1, and because they had flawless ivs and were ev trained, I completely smashed through everything without a second thought. Although that was fun, it would have been cool to raise another pokemon team.
    I also should have raised a team for wifi battles. Why Nintendo just can't let us have regular 6v6 battles with no uber legendaries I don't understand.

    However, the plus sides are:
    I now have an ev trained sun team of 6 lv100 pokemon, who also have flawless ivs.
    I am happy with choosing B2 over W2.
    My Genesect is flawless, with a naive nature.
    Dewott (it never got into its final evolution) is a good HM slave.

    I'd like to hear how other people's pokemon experience turned out.

    I have to admit. I wish I could just find, catch, level up and just battle other people's Pokemon without all this EV shit.

    I used to think that, but I've been getting into it more recently and it's not bad at all. Go to a hotspot, put on a good movie or TV show, and tap the touchscreen for a couple hours. Rinse and repeat for your six Pokemon over the course of a week. It doesn't take too long, and you don't even have to pay attention the game.

    I will admit I'd prefer the game without them, but they're not terrible. IVs and Natures I find even worse.
    Also, they're kind of necessary to make your Pokemon stronger than wild and trainer ones. It's not all about competitive play.

    Finished the first encounter with the Elite Four and the Champion finally. Did it with a Lapras (L61), Scrafty (L65) and Metagross (L61). Theoretically could have dropped the Metagross in the Champion fight, but Scrafty and Iris' Archeops didn't play well together.

    Shiny starting pokemon in black2/white2

    So, I started trying to get a shiny starter in my black2 version a few days ago and I was wandering if anyone here has ever gone for a shiny starter. If so how long did it take? Im on day 3 with a little over 100 resets done a day throughout the day at different points in time. Just something to do until X and Y come out. I mainly got this so I can transfer my pokemon to the Y version.

    Havent tried W/B 2 so not sure if it is possible, but RNG 'abuse' is usually the way to go. Works a dream in white 1. It is an exploit though but only of the numbers not of the hacking variety.

    What i RNG abuse? I have been doing soft resets to try and get a shiny snivy. Made a game out of it and started marking what hp and sex they are.

    Below is a link to the method for RNG'ing, it is quite difficult to understand initially but i suggest the playlist in the second link to help you:

    Good luck, soon you can get any pokemon shiny with the EV's, nature, gender etc you want.
