Akaru The Yoshi

Does anyone have a Spheal that I can keep? I don't feel like waiting 2 months for winter to roll around. I have quite a bit that I can give in exchange.

If my Black 1 game (unlocked national dex) is compatible with your game, I can breed a Spheal from my Walrein. I can give it some TM moves too if you'd like, but I can't guarantee any good natures or IVs. Say, do you have two functioning DSs? If so, do you think you could help me transfer a team of six mons from SoulSilver to Black 1? I only have one DS to work with. We could combine this with the Spheal trade you requested. If you're interested, send me a PM.

I don't care about natures or anything, I just want the Spheal. And I DO have 2 DS's. But, how exactly would this work?

Fought against the 4th Gym Leader, Elesa. Her Volt Switch strategy caught me off guard a bit. But I managed to win nonetheless. Now I'm at Driftveil City (where I am still level grinding with my Pokemon team).

I'm at about the same place. I'm hoping to get everyone up to at least level 30 before doing anything else.

Driftveil's changed a lot in two years; I'm actually rather surprised at the direction they took it. It's very resort-esqe, with all the hotels and the fancy tile paths and everything.

That's true. Driftveil has changed quite a lot in Black 2/White 2 with its hotel and Skyscraper-like buildings. The neat part about this city is that the move tutor that teaches you wide range of helpful moves.

Yeah waiting for Spheal is annoying that's for sure!

Otherwise I defeated Team Plasma yesterday and...

Spoilered cuz of plot content!

I became lax with the idea about Corless being involved with Team Plasma so when he turned out to be the BOSS, I was a tad surprised. Guess he had a bit of mad scientist in him! I didn't actually expect Ghetsis to appear in the game, but it was GOOL that he was the mastermind again, and with Ghetsis comes N in the moment Ghetsis tries making you DED. The cutscenes were GOOL, but IDK why they couldn't just do a smooth transition between them. Otherwise I was disappointed that I couldn't catch Black Kyurem but the poor thing was 11 under me so Lucario's Close Combat was overkill. It was nice to see some of Ghetsis's team unchanged, such as his Hydreigon and Sismetoad...though they barely lasted too long. The whole thing kinda ended on a whimper though...just all "Hey, you should try going to the Pokemon League! But overall the twists and things were nice...but Ghetsis got away again...BLACK & WHITE 3?!

:D

I HOPE NOT...cuz that would be draggin' it out.

So I guess I should go to the pokemon league or something!

Ain't it sad when the first thing you do upon receiving a past generation team of yours in Black/White is take them to that guy in Nimbasa and discover all of them had crappy IVs the whole time?

Middle of the road ivs are good enough. The only time I try to control ivs is when I need HP to be a certain type. EVs and nature are easiest to control and the most important. personally, I hate the IV system right now. you have a much better chance of getting a shiny than a pokemon with good ivs. Which reminds me. I am going to compare my pokemon's stats at level 50 to their base stats... I should be able to determine their IVs perfectly.

I can care less about IVs! Mostly because I don't wanna go through the huge hassle of getting the right nature AND all the right IVs...

I have to say, I'm kind of... disappointed, I guess? In the writing. I mean, I wasn't expecting the story to be a masterpiece, but it just feels like a step down from BW. It's regressed back from the standard Black and White set back to... well, the standard of a typical entry.

Argue all you want about whether BW "had a story" or not, but it at least had characters that were both interesting and likable, and the ideas it introduced and addressed in its story were both interesting and well-thought-about. BW2... god, I could care less about what's going on. And that makes me sad, especially since the whole "it's a sequel to BW1!" thing was touted as one of the games' main draws.

At the very least, I think that the game succeeds in terms of content.

I still don't get why anyone bothers catching and training for EV/IVs and natures. Those are only useful for competitive play, in which case you could just use Pokegen/sav. If you're playing the story, you can literally use anything and it doesn't matter at all if it has bad stats.

They tend to be important ingame if you're doing stuff like the Battle Subway. Perhaps this is just my own folly but I'd never won at the Tower/Subway until I started using an EV trained team.

The only exception to that is my challenges at the Hall, but the Battle Hall is actually fairly easy to go through, as unless you're trying to build up a huge win streak (like, in the hundreds or so) Argenta's the only real challenge.

I do it because it's more satisfying. I don't enjoy battling unless it's with a team I've worked for. Sometimes I do sav, though. I guess I do it legit when I have the initiative.

I just remembered that I caught a Smeargle in Heartgold, so I dont need to wait for ages for a swarm in Black to get them. I'm not sure on one thing though: I want mine to learn Wish, so would it be possible to put him out in a double battle and have him sketch my Xatu using Wish, or will sketch only work on an opponent?
