Tips/Tricks/News/Etc. regarding Pokemon Black/White

#1sa_MUKHA_moPosted 3/4/2011 11:06:08 PM
Could you guys inform me on anything related to this game? Such as Pokemon I should look out for, when I should do certain activities/things in the game, etc.

I honestly made the decision to buy the game just thirty minutes ago. I do not even have a Nintendo DS.. yet (I'm buying one from a friend tomorrow, LOL) I haven't even played Diamond & Pearl yet.

Anyways, anything would be greatly appreciated! Please keep the flames, troll comments, etc. to a minimum.. D:

Oh yeah, and I'm still deciding on which version I'd like to get. Some recommendations would be nice!

Chuck Norris wants to forget Tackle, but Chuck Norris can't learn more than 4,000 moves. Add a move to forget Tackle?

Honestly I'd pick up, Pokemon Platinum along with the version your getting, since you missed Diamond and Pearl.
Anyways I would get white it has better exclusives. electric legendary and white forest ( A place where you can catch old Pokemon).
Any info you need on these games is here:

Nice, thanks a lot guys! Now I'm really contemplating on getting the White version.

Also, what about Heart Gold/Soul Silver? What's your take on those?

Get Platinum, play it first because the better game deserves to be played first

Then get either White or Black

Second Chances sure are great.
It's nice to be back, GameFAQs.

No, get Black. It's better since you get Black City and there you can battle some strong trainers and help level up your Pokemon. Trust me, you'll need as many extra trainers to battle as you can! Plus, you can buy rare items there that can't be bought in White.
And don't know if you're into a more technological look or urban look....

Great game. it's a remake of the original, Gold and Silver so it's kinda for nostalgia, but even if you haven't played the originals it's still a great game to play.

platinum are #3 on my list if you want pick up platinum and soulsilver both will give you your moneys worth

my self if i had to choose between one or the other id pick soulsilver (pokemon following you is really cool and it has 16 gyms a decent e4 and decent mini games (also has a lot of legendary pokemon to catch in game



platinum has a kind of fun underground (but unless you have friends to link with in there its just you finding fossiles and items
