I don't get the difference between a "warrior" and a "warlord"...?

#1SinmoraPosted 6/19/2012 10:23:58 PM
I just read that only "warlords" can achieve a perfect link. And I assumed that if I could check their profile in the info menu, that meant that they were a warlord.

However, I have a unit now who's profile I CAN'T check, yet I linked a magikarp to him, achieving a perfect link.

Is he actually a warlord? How can I tell?

On another note, I'm enjoying the game quite a bit. I was expecting something much easier, and while the AI is rather exploitable and the mechanics are simplified, there's still a surprising amount of depth.

A warlord is like a king or queen of their kingdom, while a warrior is like a soldier in their army.

By my understanding, the main difference is Warlords can evolve. As in, the Warlords themselves, not just their Pokemon.

Don't have the game yet so I can't say if there's a way to tell just looking at them, but Serebii has lists.

@ Gamecube_Gamer

He wants to know how to tell the difference (if there is any kind of indication/icon in game) between a warrior and a warlord.

I wanna know too ^.^

Warlords have unique sprites and unique dialog, warriors share their sprites and dialog with other warriors. That's the only way I've found to tell them apart so far.

Warriors can also get perfect links in the same way a warlord can.

Basically the biggest difference is that you will never see duplicates of a warlords face. If you ever see the same guys face on more than one name, they're a warrior.

I think this game confuses you with warriors and warlords, but the way I see it is that they're all warriors. A warlord is the person in charge of an area. Even the manual calls the warlords "special warriors".

Anyways, everybody has a perfect link Pokemon. You can tell if the person is a warlord/special warrior by looking at the color of the background where their Pokemon is next to their face. If it's gray they're normal, if it's gold/bronze they're special.

EDIT: also you can tell if there's a warlord in the area by looking at the little person icon, it should be gold instead of gray.

Warlords tend to come recruited with their best link Pokemon (not always) and most likely better stats.
