    I'm amazed at the great moves Pokemon get at really low levels in B/W. Pidove (not-Pidgey) gets Roost at 18ish; Throh (not-Hitmonlee) gets Vital Throw at 15ish; Munna (not-Drowzee) gets Psybeam at 16ish; Sewaddle (not-Caterpie) gets Bug Bite at 12ish.

    I'm more then halfway through the game and I've barely looked at a lot of the buildings in some of the cities...it'd probably be a really good idea for me to do that sometime soon. ^.^;;

    I bring that up because I had completely forgotten about the two Himton-replacements and feel like I probably left them somewhere without getting them...

    Nah. They're catchables right outside Pinwheel Forest, though they're a bit rare. Depending on your version, you can only get one of them in rustling grass, which is a pain.

    I'm going to catch a few extra Throh's for people who have Black and don't want to try and catch them in the rustling grass. I know I don't want to bother with that.

    Which is it? My friend REALLY needs to know so he knows WHEN to take an hour off of work (He works at the BCM, which is just 15 minutes walk away).
    Yes, he is mega mad that he can't get the whole day off for PAX East.

    Three badges into White, and +1 to the higher difficulty comment. Nothing that can't be overcome, but I'm not steamrolling every gym with the first three 'mons I picked up like in some other games in the series.

    So far though...not enthused about the new Pokemon for the most part. Just aesthetic-wise, a lot of them seem like Pokemon-ripoffs. Eh, I'm sure I'll grow to like 'em.

    Oh, and looking forward to the meetups. Maybe some peep's will be up for Little Cup battles with the new 'mons?

    Having skimmed the new Pokedex, B/W don't seem to be aping D/P/Pt's ludicrously bizarre evolutions (Here's a rare Pokemon that's male 85% of the time and only evolves if it's female! Here's a Pokemon that only evolves if you level it up while knowing a move it never learns naturally!), but there are Pokemon that only evolve at ridiculous levels. The new not-Garchomp evolves for the first time at 50 and for the second at 65. That's a record. I don't think I've leveled 5 Pokemon to 65. Ever. Between six games.

    There are those two Pokemon that only evolve when traded for each other, though. That's weird enough.

    Today I received the final piece of my trainer outfit, and as such, I feel the need to post it! Be sure to look for me:

    I shall have my glasses on though along with blue jeans, rather than shorts. Based the outfit loosely off of the rocker sprite found in FR/LG:

    So look for me, and if you're brave enough, challenge me! ;) I shall be hunting the gym leaders down, but am glad to accept any battles from anyone in between. /ego

    That is after the closing ceremony, after the con itself closes. That's why it's held in a technically not-convention location.

    And as I'll likely not have enough left by end of Sunday, will have to wait until sometime that week to get it.

    As long as I get it before April 10th so I can get the Liberty Pass download, it'll be good. (Liberty Pass needed to get Victini)

    I don't like how there's a rediculous amount of grinding, but I'm digging the new games.

    Also, I'll make sure I'm at every one of the meetups. The PPL meetups and the chiptune showcases are the two things I can't miss no matter what.

    Sorry if you've already answered this, but are you going to be the witch again this year? Last year, I first heard your screams on the second floor of the Hynes and I seriously thought someone was getting attacked somewhere. I was looking around frantically and everyone around me looked calm like nothing was going on. I thought I'd gone crazy. Then I saw you and I was blown away by how convincing you looked. I only managed to get a blurry pic on my phone before you ran off with a professional photographer dude to take photos. It was a highlight of my trip!

    Anywho, my Pokemon FC is 5112 9361 6298 if anyone wants to battle right now! I'll add some people in this thread.

    I'm going to have to go to at least one of the meetups, if for no other reason than to have faces to put with some of the names here.

    My team's set in stone. We're ready for PAX. Now to trade them to SoulSilver... and I only have one DS.

    I'll find a way.

    Quick question. Once we have a team, can we change it or does it have to be the same every time we battle?


    Though, it maybe moot as I got sick over the weekend and threw off my entire schedule. I dont know if I can get a team ready in time. I'm going to try though.

    If someone wants to train (8+4)*6=72 level 50 pokemon to customize their team for each leader, I'd say that's pretty epic too. :shock: :wink:

    Same. While I absolutely love my current team, I wasn't able to cover all of my bases with it, so switching between battles and hoping to get lucky is what I'll be doing...honestly, if I don't know what the opponent has, most of the battle comes straight down to me being lucky and having chosen the right pokemon. xD

    My team is ready. No more than 2 of them are weak against the same element.

    I should be able to handle 3 of the Leaders decently. (Like I usually get through the first 3 gyms of any of the games without much trouble). But the others... Here's hoping I run into the 3 I feel I can beat first. (Knowing my luck, they'll be the ones I WON'T get to battle)

    I'm 99% certain I've got huge weaknesses I'm not fully aware of. It'll be my first Pokemon battles against other grown up people ever - so I'm just looking forward to it as a learning and social experience. As long as someone gives me a pity badge so my son doesn't see me as a complete failure I'll leave happy!

    You just might have to for B/W. It's a serious step up from previous games. For example...
    The Elite 4 have pokemon in the 55+ range. After you beat "the game" the right side of the map opens up for you. The first trainer you encounter has level 63-65 pokemon.


    Also, tonight is the last night before I pack up my DS and stuff. If anyone would like some battle practice with my competitive team for fun let me know.

    Hey, I'm all for high-leveling. I've just never really had to before (I haven't beaten Red in SoulSilver yet). If there's a reason to, I'll do it.

    B/W do seem to be freer with training items (Lucky Egg, Macho Brace) though.

    I am looking forward to taking part in this almost as much as I am looking forward to the entirety of PAX east. That being said, "The Wise Man's Fear" and other real life things got in the way, and my flight is going to be spent in getting situated.

    I am going to do my best to not swap between leaders, but I'm not sure that'll work.

    I seriously just learned about this a day ago and got pumped, and then I realized once I got to lugia I stopped playing because I didn't want to deal with the cave... and then I just kept not wanting to deal with it, so I caught it yesterday and now I'm just gonna... go train my pokemon somehow while I have black sitting in front of me going "Play me~ You're at the third gym~ Play me~ Catch a Scraggy~ You know you want to~"



    Regardless if I lose every battle ever at Pax this should still be fun. I'm gonna be a bro and dress up as Silver(the rival) on saturday sp challenging a gym leader in that get up should be fun.

    So since us E4 will be doing nothing but twiddling our thumbs for Friday and Saturday, I'm going to be spending my time at the meet ups getting video of the PPL. I plan on interviewing not only Gym Leaders/E4 about the league, but also you challengers!

    If you see a redonkulously handsome Canadian with blond hair sticking a camera into someones face, that's probably me. Come on by and say 'Hi' and I'll try to get you your fifteen minutes. I'll try to do what I can on Sunday, but I hope many of you will be trying to battle me for my precious badges.
