Well, let's see. Yesterday I played my Japanese White version for the first time in a long while. I had just found out that the Battle Subway had a mode where you could actually battle trainers who used the first 493 Pokemon, so I went ahead and got my streak up to 21 battles using my EV-trained Voltros, Haxorus, and Hydreigon.

I've also been mindless walking around the region admiring the graphics, lol. I love the Autumn season. Black and White really are beautiful games.

Started around 30 mins ago, picked Teh Pig (also known as Tepig) and went out into the first route. Caught myself a Lillipup, trained it a little, and then went to the first town. Explored, then talked to the hot Professor Juniper. Got my Pokemon healed...


...and found out that I caught the Pokerus! First time ever on any of my playthroughs. At this rate, I'll be getting my first shiny soon.

I've just started out, been playing for about an hour or so now, currently in Route 2!

I chose Ochawott at the start and so far have caught a Patrat which I don't plan on using, a Lillipup and a Purrloin! :)

I liked how you meet Ghetsis (sp?) right at the start so it seems like you're chasing him throughout the game as well as trying to get to the pokemon league.

Also I love how when you start a new game and you get about 50 exp points and it seems like a lot >.<

Purrloin seems to be pretty weak to start off with, struggling to beat anything really, love visiting the poke centre after every battle :|

Justarrived in Striaton City, not too confident about the upcoming gym battle, not sure if Purrloin and Lillipup will be able to help Oshawott overcome the first gym.

Just received Pansear from Dreamyard :D

Just entered the first Gym, like the look of it... and I just received some Fresh Water :D

My first gym battle of Gen V is against Cilan and she sends out a Lvl 12 Lillipup, I start out with a Lvl 11 Purrloin, also noticed she's only got two pokemon which is slightly pleasing :)

Lillipup manages to make my Purrloin faint so I decide to bring out Oshawott! Water Gun FTW :D

Cilan brings out a level 14 Pansage, good thing I went to dreamyard :) it took down my Oshawott with two Vine Whip's but I managed to get in two tail whips before. I bring out my level 10 Pansear, and Incinerate does minimal damage :| Pansage uses Vine Whip and takes 7 out of 30 HP, I should go on to win this battle now.... WOOP WOOP :)

With 6 HP left Pansear uses Incinerate to make Pansage faint! :) Gym badge number 1 after about 2 hours of play!

My White arrived today.

Started the game setup my character, and opened the box to pick my starter...two hours later and I still haven't been able to pick. I haven't had this much trouble choosing my starter since my struggle between Bulbasaur and Squirtle in the original Red version.

This is were I am so far:

Just defeated 4th gym, and had the first encounter with Alder. Apparently Cheren only wants to become the Champion, and doesn't want to do anything else :S But then Alder tells him it is also very important to love Pokémon. He asks 2 little kids if they would like to have a double battle and you and Cheren battle those Preschoolers. Afterwards, he'll say that the Pokémon enjoyed the battle. He also says it is his job to make people love Pokémon. And I've also caught Victini, Zorua and Zoroark.

Team:
Charger lvl. 29 (Zebstrika)
Smugster lvl. 30 (Servine)
Da Gangsta lvl. 29 (Scraggy)

Since my last post quite a bit has happened! I'm really enjoying this game :)

After meeting Prof Fennel I received cut and went onto Dreamyard and battled off a couple of Team Plasma Grunts, after this I proceeded to catch myself a Munna and an Audino, who I've been quite curious about during the build up of this game! At this point my team was gaining a bit of shape Oshawott, Lillipup, Purrloin, Sansear, Munna and Audino. I moved onto Route 3 where I discovered the Daycare centre and had a few battles!

Further down the road I bumped into Cheren and fended him off with relative ease, I'm now about to enter the cave to go and look for a young girls pokemon who Team Plasma appear to have stolen!

Before I went in I noticed some grass outside, walked around a bit and managed to catch myself a Pidove and a Blitzle :) So I've shuffled my team around a bit and am ready to enter the first cave in Pokemon White :)

Team: Pidove, Blitzle, Sansear, Lillipup, Audino, Oshawott

Just over 4 hours of play, seen 13 pokemon caught 9 and I have 1 Gym Badge!

I got White today and manage to speed through to the 1st gym. I'm quite underpowered, so I will do some more grinding tonight and tomorrow morning. The new XP system is much better but I am missing all the old Pokemon a bit.

I'm heading to Nacrene city right now. My team is a bit messy atm:

Oshawott Lv 15
Lillipup Lv 13
Pansear Lv 13
Munna Lv 13
Pidove Lv 8
Audino Lv 8

The last two are really only tagging along though, I haven't used them much at all.

Oshawott is probably the only pokemon there that I'll have long term. Lillipup....maybe I'll wait and see. However the rest have no hope. (Sorry Munna as soon as Solosis comes knocking you're outta here!)

Something really weird has happened to me though, The majority of the pokemon I've caught so far are Lax natured. (Munna, Pidove, Audino) My team is full of lazy bums! Even my Starter Oshawott is "Lax"! O_o

Well, today has been quite busy, I guess.
Since my last Update, I've gotten to the second gym.

Not going to lie, the first gym gave me a few issues, Considering my team only consisted of my Smugleaf and Purrloin.

I've since caught a Tympole, and reached Castelia City.
Lenora wasn't so much hard as she was annoying. Watchogs have been getting the better of me so far.

Upon reaching Castelia City, I took the Liberty Pass I downloaded and headed to Liberty Garden, to catch a Victini, which I added to my team.

So my team currently consists of:-
Smugleaf (Servine) - Lv22
Sheva (Liepard) - Lv22
Jizz (Tympole) - Lv21
Vendetta (Victini) - Lv15

I'll have to train Victini some before I face the third gym.

Hoenn
March 4th, 2011, 04:22 PM
Currently training to battle the 4th Gym Leader, and I was unsure wheather to keep Purrlion, but once she evolved to Liepard she gets much tougher and stronger.. anyway my team is currently

Bliztle (F) - Level 24
Mushrana (F) - Level 25
Pignite (M) - Level 24
Liepard (F) - Level 24

I plan the last 2 spots to goto Vanilluxe & Swanna :)

March 4th, 2011, 04:38 PM
Just defeated Lenora, she wasn't too difficult to beat. I had a Timburr which helped so much. I was worried when I caught Timburr at first it wasn't making much of an impact in battles...but after leveling it up a bit it really came into it's own after learning wake up slap.

It's funny others seem to stress out about the normal type gyms but they don't usually bother me a whole lot.

I did get beaten by N outside Nacrene Gym the first time though, I wasn't really expecting it.

Current team:

Dewott (M) Lv 20
Timburr (F) Lv 21
Herdier (M) Lv 17

Herdier is a bit behind because I'm not sure whether I want to keep him around long term...

Also, Audino is a godsend. All that lovely exp just waiting to be taken. :3

As a long-time player of the pokemon games, I have to say that before Black and White, I have become more and more disenchanted by the newer pokemon games. The second generation was probably my favourite out of them all prior to generation 5. I found generation 3 bearable but nothing fancy, and generation 4 to be a real disappointment. It never grew on me, despite others convincing me that it would eventually! It was the only generation that I never actually got as far as completing the pokemon league on, because I just got bored too quickly.

Now, I have just received White in the mail and I must say... I'm pleasantly surprised. It does feel like a fresh start and has a very different style from the older games. The graphics and artwork definitely shows more effort than generation 4, as well as the storyline. The characters seem to have a lot more depth too. I remember in generation 4, I could never remember who was who or what the names of towns and cities were simply because I didn't feel like they had enough feeling behind them to really stay in my memory. It didn't interest me. However, they're really improved on that in Black and White. By the way, I love the map artwork!

I decided to choose the oshawott and named it Ottah, level 8. I have also captured a male lillipup called Scotty (now level 6) and a female patrat called Patty (level 5). I doubt these will be my final team members but I'm working with them for now, and they certainly seem far more appealing than generation 4's early route pokemon.

So far I'm exploring Accumula Town, after having just seen Team Plasma. Will update with progress later.

Sora's Nobody
March 5th, 2011, 04:47 AM
Just started, currently trying to catch as many pokemon as possible on route 1. The games seems okay, but i was probably bothered by the stinking hot train i was starting to play the game on.

Beechlgz
March 5th, 2011, 06:53 AM
So... well it gets from good to better.

AI is improved - other trainers are harder to beat than in previous games for their levels. Downside being that if you're not very strategic (like myself) you need to grind quite a bit more. There are more frequent updates of the storyline, it's not as much running around just grinding and battling. I like how when pokemon fall asleep now their eyes shut!

So, I beat the first gym leader - much harder than I'd thought it would be - and I'm now in Route 3. Now I'm starting to split my pokemon up between party pokemon and pokemon that I'm not particularly going to use.

Using:

Oshawott - Ottah lvl 15 M - WATER
Lillipup - Scotty lvl 12 M - NORMAL
Blitzle - Zeb lvl 8 - ELECTRIC

Agreed that the AI has improved! Battling random trainers is a bit trickier and I love it :)

Started the game like 2-3 hours ago, and just about to face the first gym leader with Oshawott, Lillipup & Pansear (who I might drop after due to him being so hard to train).

Defeated Clay at the Driftveil gym and headed for Chargestone cave, Bianca gave me HM02 Fly, I had planned to teach fly to Emolga but I found it can't learn fly so I've replaced Emolga with a Joltik which I caught in Chargestone cave, I'll be catching a Vullaby as soon as I get a chance (Dark/Flying) which will also cover the empty spot on my team (I was planning to add a dark type anyway), I'm just making my way through Chargestone cave battling Plasma grunts.

Team:

Pignite Lv31
Palpitoad Lv31
Simisage Lv31
Joltik Lv31
Gothita Lv31

I was also given a lucky egg by Professor Juniper which has come in handy for training Joltik from Lv25, I'll probably swap it between all of my team so that everyone gains from it, I'm planning to get my team to about Lv35-37 before I go to the next gym

Kon~
March 5th, 2011, 09:14 AM
My name is Exalts and yesterday I began my journey alongside my childhood friends Cheren and Bianca.

It all started when a local professor, Prof. Juniper, came and dropped off a parcel at my house. We were all excited because we knew it was a Pokémon for each of us! I picked the grass-type, Snivy, and gave him a name, Tempo. Then we set out. On my way to Accumula, I captured a Purrloin and named him Marik, and then I met N.

N was stood alongside us, as we watched a bunch of wierdos named Team Plasma make a speech about Pokémon liberation. I had to admit that their words held some truth. N spoke to me and Cheren and then we battled. I wasn't too sure as I hadn't battled a lot, except against my friends, so I was happy to win, but N didn't hang around. I was a little upset as he had seemed nice.

Cheren told me to go and challenge the first gym. It was over in Striaton, so I made my way there. After investigating the area, a strange person offered me a Pokémon and I felt bad that the poor thing existed only to be given away, so I accepted the Panpour and named him Pendant, giving him a place in my team. With Tempo, Marik and Pendant by my side, I sailed through the first gym, defeating Chili easily, and earned the Trio Badge!

Then I met with Fennel, Prof. Juniper's friend. She sent me to find the Pokémon Munna, so I went into the Dreamyard. Bianca was already there, but as we found the Munna, Team Plasma attacked. I managed to hold them off long enough for Munna's friend Musharna to create a dream that would scare them away. We took the Dream Mist back to Fennel and I moved on to route three.

After a little training, Bianca and Cheren showed up. It turns out Plasma had struck again, this time stealing someone's Pokémon. Cheren and I confronted them and returned the Pokémon and then I moved on. I caught two new Pokémon: a Pidove, who I named Fawke, and a Blitzle I called Comet.

My team kept getting stronger and stronger as I made my way through the route and finally hit Nacrene City! It was very late by then, so I checked into the Pokémon Center for the night and hit the hay.

In the morning, after a little training, I met N at the entrance to the gym. We talked and battled, and he said maybe we could be friends, which made me happy, but he also said something about a Pokémon named Reshiram? I didn't know what he was talking about so he left, and then I went into the Gym. There was a museum in the front with a number of Pokémon fossils and even a meteorite, and the curator informed me that the gym was at the back, so I went through and found the leader, Lenora. It was a tough battle but I managed to scrape through at the end and won the Basic Badge.

However, Team Plasma turned up again, and this time, they had the nerve to steal an ancient fossil right from under Lenora's nose! Me and Burgh, a Gym Leader from Castelia Town, chased the goons through Pinwheel Forest, eventually managing to defeat the wrong-doers and take back the precious fossil. Just as I won the battle against the group's leader, Tempo, my dear Snivy, began to glow strangely... there was a burst of light and he had grown bigger and looked stronger. He had evolved into a Servine!

After giving the fossil back to Lenora, I moved on, heading for Castelia. Skyarrow Bridge was wonderful, giving me views I'd never seen before and ushering me through to Castelia City. It's there that I stand now, ready to view the city and preparing for battle against Burgh!

So yeah, I bought White yesterday! :D
I love it, it's so fun but I feel like the learning curve is really steep D:

Highlights of my gameplay so far:
Meeting N (I love him. Seriously.)
My Blitzle learning Flame Charge - WOOHOO
This one time when my Purrloin was on the verge of death, I used Assist and it picked Flame Charge and won... did I mention that this was against Lenora's second Pokémon and everyone else in my team was one hit from fainting? ;D

I like writing in character, so I think I'll frequent the Travel Journal regularly with updates to Exalts' story!

Pokémon B/W came out on my Birthday yesterday so I feel pretty awesome about it :D

Picked Snivy. I liked the opening battles, they livened up the monotonous first part of the game where they slowly explain what a Pokémon centre is, even though I've been playing these games for ten years >.>
Ive just obtained my first gym badge and encountered Team Plasma in the Dreamyard. Conemplating whether Panpour worth keeping because there's other good water types in the game... o.o

Instead of Gothilette, I'm having the zebra because it *looks* awesome and I had no Pokemon that were strong against flying types. :P

Anyway, I've got to the city with the normal type gym. I caught a Drilbur, although it's female but I can work with that. i should be trying to get good-natured Pokemon but I cba. That's probably why my team keeps fainting (well, except Pignite.) The zebra and mole are pretty useless atm. Drilbur just learnt Dig, so it should be a bit better. ^^

We spent a while looking around Castelia City - it really is a beautiful place. I met Cheren outside the gym and we chatted, and I helped a band of dancers unite in front of the fountain. Castelia was certainly a busy place, with lots of people running around. One of the boats accepted my Liberty Pass and offered to take me to the Liberty Garden, but I decided I wanted to battle Burgh before that happened.

However, things soon took a turn for the worst and it ended up being because of Team Plasma - AGAIN! It turned out they'd gone after a Munna again, but instead of abducting one from the wild, they stole Bianca's! Burgh and a trainer named Iris helped me battle against them, and at the end of the battle, something strange happened to my Purrloin. It began to glow and shine, like Tempo did before he evolved, and sure enough, Marik became a Liepard! He's so pretty, I just want to hug him!

Inside the Plasma base, Ghetsis, who had spoken before in Accumula Town, told us about his aim to make Pokémon free, just like the creation legend with the white Dragon. Iris knew something about the white Dragon too, but before I could work anything out, Team Plasma left.

I checked the building to see if N was hanging around, but he was nowhere to be seen. D:
I miss him. :(

I checked out the gym but Burgh looked really strong, so after a little more sightseeing, I went back to the forest to do some training. If I get strong enough while training, we'll take on Burgh tonight, but I might try again in the morning. After all, we already got one badge today. I'm sure we can wait a night to earn another!

What? I said I love N. Don't look at me like that. >.>

Key events:
Marik evolved! Liepard is so purty ♥
My love of N becomes stalker-ish.
I now have access to Liberty Garden
Burgh is too strong. Good job I saved before battling so I could reset. >.<

Well, I'm definitely finding myself doing a lot more grinding than I used to do in previous games. I don't know if this is maybe due to lower EXP rate, or more EXP needed for level ups, or just an absence of trainers (I think not, at least there are a lot of storyline trainers). I doubt it's any of these things really, since those things aren't really true about this game. Maybe it's because I'm spreading out my training over more pokemon because hey, I actually like this gen's pokemon and can't choose which ones to train. So I got a bigger party than normal for this part of the game.

I'm just training at Pinwheel Forest reading myself for the gym leader at Nacrene City.

Team:

Ottah - DEWOTT - lvl 17 - WATER
- Razor Shell
- Focus Energy
- Water Gun
- Water Sport

Zeb - BLITZLE - lvl 16 - ELECTRIC

So I've beaten Lenora and Burgh now. Burgh was shockingly easy to beat. Only his Leavanny hit me once with razor leaf cause it was faster than my Darumaka.

I'm on my way to Nimbasa City now finally after taking a detour to catch a Yamask and pick up the cover fossil.

Dewott (M) Lv 25
Gurdurr (F) Lv 25
Darumaka (M) Lv 25
Yamask (F) Lv 24
Whirlipede (F) Lv 25

I feel my team is finally starting to come into it's own, around Striaton/Nacrene City my team was a bit hopeless but we're making waves now. :p I want my final team member to be a Solosis.

Then that might be my final team, although if a pokemon I want more comes along Whirlipede would be the most likely to take the fall.

March 5th, 2011, 10:32 PM
When the sun went down, I went a-grinding.

When I was younger, I didn't understand what was meant by grinding, and I think I got the wrong impression, because I was certain it was illegal. But as my team and I entered the Battle Company of Castelia City, the word took on it's true meaning: I was working hard to make us stronger. When I thought we were finally ready, we entered Castelia Gym.

Burgh was waiting for me, and the battle we had was fierce. More than once, I thought I was done for by my Pokémon were there for me, and they fought well. It was a struggle to reach the end, and when we finally prevailed, I have to admit, my jaw dropped. It dropped even further when, as Burgh was handing me the badge, my dear Pidove, Fawke, began to glow - he was evolving! The light cleared and he had grown bigger and more colourful; a Tranquill!

As we were leaving the city to head on to Nimbasa, Bianca called me on the Xtranceiver and asked for a battle. I met up at the entrance to route 4 and we had a battle, which I won, but Bianca wasn't upset because she felt she was learning about Pokémon.

I went out onto route 4 - and nearly choked. It was covered in sand which a heavy wind had whipped into a sandstorm! It was all in my eyes and nose and mouth, and it was hard to walk in. I had to put a scarf over my lower face and squint as closely as possible, which was probably why I didn't see Cheren until he was asking me what was wrong. And then, of all things, he challenged me to a battle! Of course, I won, but it was only due to type match-ups - he let me have the advantage of picking second so I could always out-type him.

I fought long and hard through the sandstorm, occasionally stopping for battles or to shelter in alcoves and behind girders - there was some kind of construction work going on. When I got to Nambisa City, surprise surprise, Team Plasma were causing trouble. I beat one of the goons off and the man they had been attacking gave me a bike for my trouble - people are really generous around here. o__o

The two goons ran into the fairground, but I had to go to the Pokémon Center before I could chase them. Then, I ran into Bianca who showed me to the Pokémon Musical. I tried telling her I had somewhere I had to be, but she insisted, and then, when we got there, decided it wasn't for her and ran off again. What the Mew, Bianca?! When I peeked outside, I saw why she had freaked out. Her father had showed up out of the blue and was threatening to send her home. I tried to get past them - c'mon, guys, I have bad guys to catch - but Bianca roped me into things and tried to use me as defense against her stupid father. What the Mew, Bianca?!?!

Of course, I can't go and run after the bad guys yet. Elesa of all people shows up and puts a stop to things. Elesa! A gym leader and world-famous model! And she doesn't care that the bad guys have probably been able to go twice around the ferris wheel and escape by now!

I finally pull away and run into the fairground, Poké Balls ablaze, ready to kick Plasma butt, and N shows up.

What bad guys?

Me and N go on the Ferris Wheel together. ♥ It's a perfect date, the sun is setting in the background and the lights are coming on, and there's just me and N sat alone in a ferris compartment. Could this moment be any more perfect?

"I'm the king of Team Plasma."

Waitwhat.

We get off the Ferris Wheel. Moment's ruined. The goons show up but I got over them a while back. N confuses them with logic and we have a battle - mainly because I'm angry that he deceived me like that. Of course, I win, because my anger is my Pokémon's anger. Oh, and we're really really strong. N seems kind of upset too, but then he says something that makes my blood boil. He says he wants every trainer to release their Pokémon, and to make it happen, he's willing to become champion, and he wants me to be the one to try and stop him once he's gotten that far. And then N leaves with the Plasma goons... HIS Plasma Goons. D:<

Well, I don't know whether to be angry about what he wants to do or flattered that he asked me to be his challenger. After all, that moment on the Ferris Wheel was sort of a date... ♥

I LOVE THIS GAME!
So, I'm grinding for the fourth gym after only narrowly defeating the third, with 9 hours on the clock and a total of 1 date with N.

Key moments:
Beating Burgh
Fawke evolving into a Tranquill
I consider using my water stone on my Panpour, but decide against it in the end
Bianca is a wierdo. What the Mew, Bianca?!
And finally, I have a date with N and he spoils the atmosphere by telling me he's the leader of my enemies. Ah, forbidden love...♥

Currently resting at the Nimbasa Pokémon Center before a long day of grinding.

... Look at N. Look at him up ^ there and down v there. He's so pretty~♥

To the above poster: if you love him now, you'll love him even more for what he asks you to do later on.

Well, last night I reached Opelucid City in preparation for battle with the final Gym leader. Its prior to this and just after the 7th Gym that the story begins to kick off properly so i won't spoil it for anyone, but I'm really enjoying this game so far. Haven't had any problems with Gym leaders or training or whatever.

I did however run into my first Shiny of Generation 5: a female Tranquil, who is now an Unfezant. I decided not to use her though as I had another Unfezant in my team already, but I'm really happy that I came across one in my third day of playing Gen V when I never came across one in five years of the fourth gen.

Unfezant Lv. 45
Cinccino Lv. 45
Ferrothorn Lv. 45
Zebstrika Lv. 50

Mienfoo Lv. 39

Currently grinding them all to level 50 before I face the final gym.

What a day we had ahead of us!

I woke up in Nimbasa Pokémon Center with a bright perspective! ... until I remembered my confrontation with N last night. I didn't want to dwell on it too much, so I headed over to where I met Bianca yesterday. Thankfully there was no confusing parental confrontations this time; I managed to clear my head by taking part in a Pokémon Musical!

Tempo, my Servine, was great at the Musicals! He knew just when to appeal to the crowd and we ended up with a lot of fans, all giving us new accessories! It was so much fun and after the bright lights and jaunty music... N? Who's N? ;D

I checked in on the Gym and it looked pretty flashy and fun, like a fairground ride, but after battling one of the trainers in there, I decided extra training was necessary. I took my team out onto the next route and battled a few of the trainers there and did some more of this 'grinding' business against the wild Pokémon. I even made the decision to evolve dear Pendant, after finding the Water Stone in my bag while digging around for a Potion. I showed my Panpour the stone and he nodded excitedly, so I handed it to him and he immediately began to glow. When the light cleared, he was a lot bigger, with longer 'hair' and a more colourful body.

Evolution is fun!

So we did some more battling. And a bit more. And some more. And then I saw it.

I saw the Pokémon of my dreams.

A tiny little body surrounded by jelly... a cute little face... an adorable cry... It had to be my sixth team member. Solosis! Solosis, the ADORABLE little blob! ♥

I caught one as quickly as I could and straight away gave him a hug. He was so SQUISHY! It was love! ♥ I named my little Solosis Tardigrade and immediately started training him alongside my team. However, he was a little weaker than the rest of them, so I handed him the Exp. Share I had recently obtained... somehow. I don't know quite how the Exp. Share got inside the jelly, but he's definitely holding it...

SO SQUISHY I'M GONNA DIE ♥♥♥
Solosis is so cute and it was made even cuter when I found out it was based on mitosis/meiosis (the process in which a cell splits in two - there's separate methods for plant cells and animal cells) and a Tardigrade - hence his nickname!

For those who don't know, the Tardigrade, or Water Bear (bwaaah♥), is an extremely resilient type of bacteria that is said to be even mightier than the cockroach in terms of endurance. These things have survived intense heat and cold, terrible conditions and even the vacuum of space!

They say that when the sun burns up and all life on earth is killed, all that will be left are cockroaches and tardigrades.

Also, I have a strange obsession with tardigrades.

About to face Elesa, might be tough though since I have no ground pokemon. Although it probably wouldn't matter much since she has two Emolga's. I taught my Gurdurr dig which might help.

Gurdurr (F) lv 26
Dewott (M) lv 27
Yamask (F) lv 26
Darumaka (M) lv 26
Whirlipede (F) lv 26
Solosis (M) lv 26

Something doesn't seem right about my team though...and I can't really put my finger on it. It doesn't have a good way of dealing with water types at the moment...

Edit: Just defeated Elesa, she was harder than the previous three gym leaders. Mostly because of Volt Switch. Solosis was my saviour in this battle, knocked out all three with it's Psyshock attack. Darumaka helped a lot too. When I taught dig to Gurdurr I wasn't counting on Volt Switch, sure enough when I used dig on Zebstrika she switched to one of her Emolga's and it didn't do anything...

I really like how the gym leaders feel much more involved in this game.

Beat all four members of the Elite 4. Mostly absused Zoroark's Night Slash to do it. Saw Team Plasma's Castle rise out of the ground. Watched Reshiram burst through the wall and unleash it's flames. Battled Zekrom. Haxorus used Dragon Claw and then I threw a Pokéball and it was caught! Battled N. Battled Ghetsis. And then the game finished after N finished speaking. Spoke to Looker and got the Super Rod. And got my Pokédex upgraded.

EDIT: I didn't see the journal thread above. :( Mods, pleas move this.

I just got my copy of Pokémon White today, and I loved holding it. (I've been
waiting four years for a game of a new generation. Anyways, I
will be telling about the travels of my character, randomly named Mustard.

So, when I first played, I reseted four times because I wanted a female Oshawott. However, I didn't get it, so I just settled with a male one instead.

First, I battled Bianca and her Tepig. I beat her, but my Oshawott was the
second to attack- for every turn. I was wondering why my Oshawott was
slow to attack- and then I saw my Oshawott, at Level 6, has a speed of 9, a
defense of 11, with the other stats being 12.

Next, I fought Cheren and won. His Snivy was a bit harder than Bianca's
Tepig, but both were easy to beat.

I did all that beginning-of-game stuff, seeing Bianca having an argument with
her dad, getting the Pokédex, walking down Route 1, etcetera.

Next, I went to Accumula town, did all that mandatory story stuff, then I
battled N- and nearly lost. That Purrloin really scratches! However, my level
went up to 8, which is very good.

Poseidon the Oshawott
Level: 8
Max HP: 28
Attack: 16
Defense: 15
Sp. Atk: 15
Sp. Def: 14
Speed: 10 (Might need some Carbos :P)

When I was in Accumula Town and I went up to that house on the hill, I
wanted to jump onto the rooftops!

So, I went to Route 2 and listened to the lovely music there and then-
RING! My character's mom called me on the Xtransceiver, then
appeared, talked, then left. Typical beginning-of-game stuff. But I did get
Running Shoes, which made it worth all that talking. Finally, I was left to go onto Route 2.

When Poseidon got to Level 8, he learned Water Gun, which I had fun using. :)
After battling some wild Pokémon, Poseidon went up one more level. This
route, however, had TRAINERS! These trainers helped my Oshawott
gain more levels! :D Gotta love leveling up three times! I also battled Bianca and won- usual stuff.

When I got to Straiton City, I battled Cheren, but lost. Losing hurts. :( To ensure that I wouldn't lose
again, I battled some of the trainers near the Dreamyard. When I got to a dead end, a girl gave me a Pansear! I named him Vulcan.

Poseidon the Oshawott
Level: 13
Max HP: 39
Attack: 22
Defense: 19
Sp. Atk: 21
Sp. Def: 20
Speed: 15

Vulcan the Pansear
Level: 10
Max HP: 32
Attack: 16
Defense: 17
Sp. Atk: 16
Sp. Def: 17
Speed: 22 (This is odd... ?)

using Vulcan. Sorry to put out your campfire, Cheren. Anyways, for battling him,
I got some Oran Berries. If only I had some in my Platinum game. :(

After my triumph, I challenged Cilan, but not before battling the waiters.
Poor Vulcan nearly fainted from battling a Level 11 Lillipup. After that, I had
to battle a waitress- and she packed a punch. I can tell you that Vulcan will
need a bit of training before he is able to battle normal-type Pokémon. However,
pummeling Grass types is his forte. :) Vulcan did get healed before the gym
leader battle, though.

The battle with Cilan was okay. His Lillipup- well, you could say his bite was worse than his bark! It was a grueling battle.

Fennel came up to me and gave me HM01, Cut, then I went to the Dreamyard
to catch some more Pokemon, but not without healing my two miniature
warriors. When I got to the Dreamyard, two Team Plasma grunts battled me.
After I kicked some plasma butt, I went to catch a Munna.

Ah, it felt good to be out training in the open! My team just seemed to be getting stronger and stronger, especially my squidgy Tardigrade, who had needed a lot of catching up but was especially skilled in battle. Tardy used an attack called Psyshock and it was amazing! Like a mind crush!

I happened to glance at my map and remembered the bit of route four that I'd missed out because the sandstorm had been too much. It had been a while and I think I'd gotten all the sand out of my hair... and mouth.. so I decided to check it out. I took my team and we headed to the Desert Resort!

But, like all good ideas, this was a bad idea. I guess I forgot how bad that sandstorm actually was. >.>
However, there were plenty of trainers around who were willing to battle me to test my skills. While I was rooting around in the sand, finding hidden items thanks to my itemfinder, I noticed a set of stone steps... surrounded by these big grey-white things, like statues. They freaked me out because they looked alive, but weren't moving, so I ducked into the stairwell to get away from them. It turned out the stairs led to a hidden chamber, and some people were already down there. A scientist told me it was called Relic Castle, and a couple of 'psychics' said stuff about it having the remains of magic and once, long ago, being the heart of Unova for both humans and Pokémon...

Something about that reminded me of N so I left. I don't want to think about him right now... hehe♥

After a little more training in the desert, I couldn't wait to get out of there, so I headed back to Nimbasa and decided it was time. It was finally time for me to take on Elesa at the Gym. The trainers waiting in the gym were tough and after a couple of close calls, we were ready for the end, so when I finally reached Elesa's platform - those coaster tracks are FAST - I was glad of the items I had bought beforehand. I lavished potions and healants over my team and then we were ready to roll.

Unfortunately, I wasn't counting on Zebstrika being so hard to beat. And even when I managed to get him down, Elesa's constant switching between her two Emolga left me confused and my team worse for wear. After a while, I only had my squidgy Tardy and poor Pendant left. Pendant, being the Water type, wasn't keen to get out there at all, especially since Fawke, my Tranquill, had tried his luck at distracting Zebstrika so I could heal Marik, only to get knocked out himself.

I had no choice. I send out Tardigrade. My poor little Solosis, in his first real battle, against a powerful gym leader.

He used Psyshock.

It was awesome.

Three attacks later and that was it. I had won. I could barely believe it and Elesa was even worse - she had severely underestimated my little Solosis and paid the price for it. She grumpily handed over the Bolt Badge - woohoo! - and told me to meet her on route six. I healed up and obliged, following her over to the route gate, ready to see why she wanted me--

FFFF. CHEREN. What are you doing here?!

Of course he wanted a battle, right there and then. I proceeded to beat him up and take his money to buy myself some chocolate. ♥

Cheren was moody because he thinks Pokémon is about strengths and weaknesses and that he calculated everything to perfection - but Pokémon aren't statistics to be shimmied into equations. They're friends and partners, and we create bonds with them in order to reach a common goal, be it strength, companionship or even love... oh N... waitwhat. Where was I?

Elesa came along, all strutty, wondering what was taking me so long, and noticed Cheren. Instead of having a go or even ignoring him, she introduced us to a strange red-haired man watching the dancers, who introduced himself as Alder, the current Champion. He them put Cheren firmly in his place.

Cheren's jaw hit the floor. I heard it.

We proceeded to beat up two kids because Alder told us to. Man, why didn't I start my journey earlier?! This is so much fun!

Elesa called us back on track - spoilsport - and opened the bridge for us, while telling us not to underestimate the man on the other side. But what of that right now? I'm enjoying a leisurely stroll with my partners after an intense battle, across a beautiful bridge with a gorgeous view. In that moment, I felt that everything was just so, and it felt just right.

Next stop, Driftveil City! To check in to a Pokémon Center, to check out the gym and most important of all - to stalk N! WOOHOO!

Yaay! I beat Elesa!
She was tough. >.> Seriously, little Tardy was my final hope and boy did he pay off.

Key moments:
Tardy got strong ♥
Some wierdo in Relic Castle gave me a Plume Fossil but since the only Pokémon I'm going to be using are the six I have with me, I didn't think it was worth mentioning. I might revive it post game D:
I know the blue things are Daruma-mode Darmanitan but I don't want one and they'll still be there later.
Beat Elesa! Finally!
Gained access to Driftveil City!
Got to see Cheren put in his place for once!
Bought chocolate!
Didn't see N D:

I might post more later but I had to take notes for this one, since it was pretty long (I know. Notes! and I kept messing stuff up so I was trying to write with my stylus and touchscreen with my pencil) so the next one will be shorter, for sure. probably the intro to driftveil and anything that happens in the city. If I keep in character, I won't move on from Driftveil until tomorrow so I might just go grind outside of posting.

Somehow, I ended up with a Modest-natured female on my first go-through, and she led me to defeat both Bianca and Cheren. I nicknamed her Maisy, and am currently watching Professor Juniper's tutorial battle.

- Beat first gym, pansear that I received helped a bit.
- Beat the Team Plasma grunts at dreamyard and received the c-gear from Fennel.
- Left Striaton City and evolved my Samo (Oshawott) into Dewott on route 3 where I'm currently at.

Did I post saying I started a new game? Because having badly natured Pokemon was not fun, mainly because they kept dying. So I restarted and tried to get either a good nature or a nature that doesn't really affect them...
------------

Okay, so after spending a bit of time trying to catch a Victini with a good nature, I settled with a nature that doesn't affect anything. I beat the third Gym leader (fainting his Leavanny with one move.) Also, my Blitzle evolved. :> I'm at Nimbasa City now, and I was stuck in a Ferris Wheel with an (presumably) insane N.
I've also tried out the Pokemon Musical. Do you actually get anything decent out of it? :S Additionally, I've used the Relocator to transfer my shiny beasts.

I've been playing for quite a bit since Friday. I've just obtained my fourth gym badge at Nimbasa City and I'm currently heading towards Route 5 to train up my Pokémon. My gym battle at Nimbasa City made me realise that my team is quite weak to the Flying type - her Emonga almost swept my team with Aerial Ace, so I've started training a Roggenrola as my fifth Pokémon.

My team so far consists of:

Swoobat - Level 28

Pignite - Level 29
Roggenrola - Level 21
Patrat - Level 4, (HM's)

:moved from a thread:

Good afternoon pokecommunity.

This is my first post, though I have been lurking the forums now for approximately a month and a half. White version is the first poke game I've played sincerely since silver on the GBC(purchased soulsiver a month ago to hold me over until white). Me and my gbc had some great times. I remember playing yellow blue or silver on the long car rides to and from the lake house as a kid.

Enough reminiscing though; This game is great. A few specific things that I like are the new camera angles (running around in Castelia makes me feel like I'm playing ff7), the fact that they combined the pokecenters and pokemarts, and the fact that team rocket is no where to be seen (this story has a new twist. Similar, but new.) I just captured victini and am very pleased with the smooth progression of the game.

I also purchased the limited edition hardcover collector's edition guide #018973, which I'll say is very smart looking. I've come across two typos so far, but other than that it is a very nice guide.

I look forward to communicating with you all further! Have a great day

Well, I've just completed the first.. half? of the game. Defeated the last Gym leader, reached the Pokémon League and... I don't want to spoil it for anybody who doesn't know what happens. But, I've really enjoyed playing this game. The story is the most in-depth of any pokémon game to date. it actually makes you feel like you are/are doing something important rather than just a bystander who happens to get involved.

it's odd, but this game has made me feel emotional, like no other Pokémon game has. i don't know... the whole situation N is in, plus a scathing comment from ghetsis abouit him.. It made me think. D:

Anyway, here's my team at the conclusion of this part of the game. Now off to do the next part! Got my national dex, too. =D

For Black, I choose Oshawott and quickly defeated both Bianca and Cheren. After receiving the Pokédex and learning how to catch Pokémon, I proceeded onto Accluma (spelling) Town and defeated N using Oshawott. Moving on, on Route 2 I caught a Purrloin and started training her.

But now I'm starting to think there's something seriously wrong with her after being 2HKO'd by Cheren's Purrloin, when her Scratch usually does a tiny amount of damage. Now I'm off to the Dreamyard to train...

Dear Journal,

I just arrived in Striaton City after my long journey from home. Coming from a far away region, the places and people here are so different, not to mention the Pokémon. Upon my arrival, I got the chance to meet up with Prof. Juniper, who kindly gave me a choice of one of the Unova region starters. It was a generous gift, but I immediately fell in love with Oshawott, the Sea Otter Pokémon. Traveling with him all the way from Nuvema Town, I've learned that he's quite the adamant type.

Along the way, I met two long time friends, Cheren and Bianca. They too received a choice of the Unova starters as a gift from Prof. Juniper. Eager with our new Pokémon, the three of us faced off in battle for the first time. With smart tactics I managed to come off on top between the two of them.

Obtaining the Unova PokéDex from the Professor and shifting high gear into my new adventure, Oshawott and I headed off. Not far into our journey, and anxious to make my first catch, I caught a Lillipup. He's proven himself quite the powerhouse so far and shows he never likes to lose in battle.

Well, that's all for now. Until next time...

March 6th, 2011, 07:13 PM
Dear Journal,

Three hours into my journey and I've already done so much (or at least I'd like to think so). Upon arriving to Striaton City, I remembered back in Accumula Town, Professor Juniper asked if I go see her college friend, Fennel. Unfortunately, she was busy in her lab, so I decided to stroll around the city until she was done.

I believe I mentioned how kind people were in the Unova region in my last log, but when I arrived in the Dream Yard east of Striaton City, this one girl I ran upon was overly nice. Not knowing her for very long at all, she offered to give me a Pansear. Shocked, I couldn't accept it at first, but after she explained her offer I couldn't refuse. After all, if I wanted to capture many of the Pokémon there was in Unova, I couldn't pass along such a unique Pokémon.

Continuing around the city, I came upon Cheren at the Trainer's School. Trying to test out what he learned about using items in battle, we did just that. Like before, I managed to come out on top, but I was impressed by how much stronger he had gotten. After the battle, Cheren told me that the Striaton Gym Leader had recently left the school and headed back to the gym. Eager to win my first badge, I darted across the city to where the gym resided and made my way toward the gym leader.

Little to my knowledge, there were three of them! Cilan, Chili, and Cress. Each specializing in their own type, I ended up facing off against Cilan. He was a tough first gym battle, especially his Pansage, but as well trained as my Lillipup was, I was able to claim victory along with my first Unova gym badge; the Trio Badge!

Caught by surprise, Fennel walked up to me as I existed the gym. After showing me her lab upstairs, she sent me out to the Dream Yard with Bianca to find the mysterious Pokémon Munna and Musharna so we can obtain the Dream Mist. As easy as it sounded, we encountered a strange couple of trainers. They looked familiar, like I had seen them before, and their name of the organization they called out bypasses me at the moment, but they were out to harm the Munna we found. Not allowing that to happen, we immediately engaged and put them in their places. Luckily, at the end of all that confusion, Fennel showed up and explained what had happened with Munna and those odd people and before heading back she was able to pick up the Dream Mist Munna left behind. Not to forget, I was able to find and capture a Munna of my own!

With everything that's happened so far, I feel quite tired. Fennel was kind enough to give me a useful feature called the C Gear before finally leaving her lab today. She said I'm sure I'll find a lot of use for it later. However, for now, I'm just thinking about all the sleep I can get.

Until next time...

I just started playing white sometime around 4 or 5 o'clock today.
-Chose Oshawatt
-Lost the first fight with Bianca because her Tepig got a frickin critical
-Would've lost the fight with Cheren had he not used Leer instead of Tackle.
-Went to Prof. Juniper's lab
-Named Oshawatt Tsunamurai (a mix of Samuri and Tsunami)
-Got mah Pokedex
-Caught Terria the female Lillipup and Meeratta the Female Patrat
-Trained All to level 6
-Took my first trip to the pokemon center.
-Got the Liberty Ticket (tbul)
-Listened to Ghetsis's speech
-Defeated N with Terria, who got up two levels as a result of defeating a pokemon 1 level higher (this is when the new exp. System comes in handy)
-Did a little bit more training, but stopped in the middle

I'm not gonna post my team because eventually it's gonna have like, a lot of stuff in there. However, after a while, I will list Pokemon caught number in the pokedex.

After getting Pokemon White today (Gamestop, how did you get my mom's number wrong?) via pre-order, I opened up my DSi, and began playing!

I won't go into details, but for you to get the gist of it, I

-obtained Oshawott, nicknamed Muramasa, aka Demon Blade since he's based off of samurais. Quiet nature.
-captured Patrat and Lillipup.
-beat Bianca and Cheren many times, Cheren's broken Snivy ko'ed my starter.
-obtained Pansear, nicknamed Fiyah.
-I changed my WPA code to WEP and obtained the Liberty Pass. Victini, here I come.
-And I caught Drilbur, Female, nicknamed Dig'em. Hasty natured.

Fell in love with Munna for being an elephant and for kicking ass. But really it is because he had Yawn. Sleep moves Rock.

I was suprised by my love for Patrat. Run Away, Thunder Wave, and False swipe would make an exelent catching pokemon.

And did you know that you can re-use TMs!! Because like a dozen NPCs told me so. They realy wanted to hammer that in for retuning players.

Seeing a Patrat sprite walking on the map made me angry. They can animate some pokemon, but not have Walking Pokemon as a feature? Come on! Walking Pokemon is better than BUBBLES!!!!

Started playing as soon as I found a DS that worked (mine finally died). I started playing Black to familiarize myself. Since Black's the version I plan on playing around with, I rushed through the storyline and everything instead of taking the time to explore more.

But I'm not as far as I would have liked.

Currently in Castella City's Pokemon Center, having just caught a male Sandile for my main game. Again, I'm loving Sawk, who helped me defeat the rather difficult second Gym by essentially OHKO every trainer in there.

Team currently is:

"Crazy Tom" the Pignite - Level 20
"Broccoli" the Pansage - Level 19
"Don" the Sawk - Level 18

I'm thinking Crazy Tom's going to make a return, though, in my main game.

Took a break from gym challenging to put a Solosis up on the gts, I asked for a Gothita in return. The trade came through this morning and my first gts trade on pokemon white was with a spanish person.

I checked out unity tower....but it makes me wonder. The one I traded with said her favourite thing was reading. I don't remember ever telling the game my hobby. I wonder where you can tell the game that...

So at around ten am, I forced my lazy butt out of bed and into my grandmas car so she could take me to gamestop and I could finally obtain the game ive been waiting for for what seems like years even though it was only around six months and even though I was home by eleven, I wasn’t able to play the game until a few hours ago. (run-on sentence for the win?) I currently have around two and a half hours clocked in, and im on route three.


Notable Events:

-Chose male protagonist.
-Chose Snivy. <3
-Decided against giving nicknames to my Pokemon, hoping this method will familiarize me with the American names.
-Lost one of the first battles to Cheren. Doh. >.<
-Feels bad for Bianca. :/
-Route 1 was a breeze.
-Not sure why, but I love Accumula Town. <3
-Caught a Purrloin and a Patrat on route 2.
-Got my first badge. :D
-I saw my first shaking patch in the Dreamyard, but got intercepted by a wild Pokemon. :(
-Lmao @ little preschooler wanting his Pansage to hyper beam. x)
-Lmao @ fact that you can climb on a slide, but you cant sit on chairs or lay in beds anymore.
-Caught Pidove.


Current Team:

Patrat | lv 13 | Run Away
tackle | leer | bite | sand-attack
I heard bad things about this guy, so I was kind of iffy on whether I should have caught him or not. Im not sure if im going to keep him throughout my play-through. Only time can tell.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/84/Spr_5b_509.png
Purrloin | lv 12 | Limber

I reached Nacrene City, but I decided I'd visit Pinwheel Forest and catch Throh before I tackled the gym.

Oh, Solosis is so SQUISHY♥
http://i56.tinypic.com/2dmcig9.jpg

Oh, sorry, where was I?

Last night I arrived in Driftveil, ready to crash for the night, but as I came to the end of the bridge, I saw Cheren had been stopped by a strange man. The man said he was called Clay, and that unless Cheren and I found and stopped Team Plasma, we wouldn't be allowed to challenge the gym! I was pretty angry and Cheren didn't see how it was up to us when Clay is responsible for the town, but that was that. It was up to two kids to stop the bad guys. I was all ready to tear someone's head off when I realised Team Plasma might mean N, and there was a possibility I'd see him again.

It was a good night's sleep after that, and I woke up refreshed in the Pokémon Center, as did my team. I stocked up on some supplies and explored the town. There were a couple of people concerned about Team Plasma, so I guessed Cheren hadn't found them yet, and I should get on the case, but if no one could find them, they had either left or were hiding somewhere, so I surmised I had a little time to kill. After all, my team needed a little more training, and everyone was raving about somewhere called the Cold Storage, so I headed in that direction.

On the way, I met a guy on a motorcycle named Charles. He kept calling himself a heartbreaker but unless he was breaking those hearts with his beard, I don't know what the fuss is about. He challenged me to something called a Triple Battle, which I accepted, and I went all out with Comet, Fawke and Marik, my Blitzle, Tranquill and Liepard. I won, as was expected - hey, I'm getting to be that good - and then Comet evolved, as was ex--wait what. Comet evolved! He became a Zebstrika, just like Elesa's that we battled yesterday! I was so excited and so was he, because he got a lot stronger as a result! We were ready now! We headed over to the Cold Storage.

Cheren was there, and he said he suspected Team Plasma were inside. I agreed, but didn't tell him my hopes to meet N. We stormed in and -- nothing. Just confused-looking workers and loads of ice. It was really, really cold, too. And slippery! After a couple of slips, I got the hang of sliding across the ice to get to new places, and eventually reached the back of the storage, where a container stood. Cheren was sliding behind me and he nearly crashed into my back but I sidestepped and he hit the side of the container instead. Hehehe.

We heard voices inside, so I stepped in, and lo and behold, Team Plasma! They were all huddled around this old guy, but stopped that once Cheren and I appeared. The eight goons split into two groups and four of them battled each of us. Every single one of them claimed to be the toughest, but none of them were really that hard. Cheren and I beat them all up just in time for Clay to show up and finally actually do something, instead of asking kids to do it for him. However, the thing he showed up to do was... ask other people to gather up the wrong-doers for him. Lazy bum.

I took a close look at each of them as they left, but none of them were N. Shame. D: I even searched the container, but all I found was frozen boxes and a chunk of strange ice. Meh.

Cheren stopped to chat and said that what Team Plasma were doing, aiming to separate the worlds of humans and Pokémon, sounded bad, since it would be like having no Pokémon at all. I didn't say anything, but I remembered children's stories my Mama used to tell me, about a world where there were only Pokémon, and things you would never believe went on, and sometimes, just sometimes, a human would get sucked into the Pokémon world and turn into one. I loved those stories. Thinking like that, a world of just Pokémon sounded fun. But a world of just humans, with no Pokémon at all?

... N... I hope you know just what you're doing... ♥

Thus, exploration of Driftveil is complete. I really enjoy writing these things because then I go back to the game still in character and the events seem that much more exciting! And yeah, I'm twisting the NPC dialogue a bit to fit my own intentions but hey, it's fun, right? :3

Key Moments:
Beating up Team Plasma
Comet evolved
Tardigrade is still cute and squidgy
In the right circumstances, Assist is one heck of a move. (Randomly managing to grab Shockwave against a Panpour? Getting Flame Charge against Pansage? Are you sure this is random?!)

Next time, training to take on Clay, the old lazy miser! :D
I drew the picture at the beginning. I won't do it often so don't expect it regularly, and I won't draw you one, so don't ask. :B

March 7th, 2011, 04:11 AM
Defeated Clay at the Driftveil gym and headed for Chargestone cave, Bianca gave me HM02 Fly, I had planned to teach fly to Emolga but I found it can't learn fly so I've replaced Emolga with a Joltik which I caught in Chargestone cave, I'll be catching a Vullaby as soon as I get a chance (Dark/Flying) which will also cover the empty spot on my team (I was planning to add a dark type anyway), I'm just making my way through Chargestone cave battling Plasma grunts.

Team:

Pignite Lv31
Palpitoad Lv31
Simisage Lv31
Joltik Lv31
Gothita Lv31

I was also given a lucky egg by Professor Juniper which has come in handy for training Joltik from Lv25, I'll probably swap it between all of my team so that everyone gains from it, I'm planning to get my team to about Lv35-37 before I go to the next gym

Another big update since I last posted, I've just defeated Drayden and obtained the final badge, my team has changed alot since my last post too, I had replaced my Simisage with a Ferroseed (which I evolved into Ferrothorn), then when I got to the 8th gym I realised I was lacking an ice type pokemon (none of my team could learn an ice type move) so I caught a Beartic (I changed my ds month to April so that it would be winter), I also caught a Vullaby, I'm going to head to Victory Road now and prepare for the pokemon league.

My Team;

Emboar Lv42
Beartic Lv43
Seismitoad Lv41
Galvantula Lv41
Gothitelle Lv41
Vullaby Lv40

hmm traded my gurdurr for another one now have conkeldurr, and got bianca's munna back from team plasma, now fighting Burgh for my 3rd gym badge.

Servine and Conkeldurr wrecked Burgh

RYOUKI
March 7th, 2011, 09:06 AM
Oh, Oh, oh! Today, I finally got White! So yeah, here's what happened.

I chose Snivy as my starter, and now I'm in Pinwheel Forest trying to train my Servine for Lenora.
Okay, here's what happened:

-Challenge the Castelia City Gym, but they were specializing in Bug-types, I decided to catch a Darumaka.
-Darumaka pwned Arti.
-Wandered forever in the desert just to take Archen.
-Archen kinda sucks right now. After he hits the yellow line, he's pretty much useless.
-Went to uh, Nimbasa City.
-The Gym is nice, but YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE ROLLER COASTER. D:
-Elesa is tough.
-Er, no. Elesa's Emolga is tough. Her Zebstrika went down in, I dunno, 2-3 moves?
-To beat Elesa's Emolga, decided to catch a Sandile.
-It worked! Her Emolga kept abusing Aerial Ace, so I decided to torment.
-The battle was long, she kept healing her FIRST Emolga. Rock Tomb only has 10 PP, you know?
-Sandile went down, but it's speed was down because of the effect of Rock Tomb, so Archen Ancient Powered her.
-Second Emolga got Ancient Powered too. Yeah, I dunno why it's suddenly not annoying and weak.
-Elesa's real Pokemon was Emolga. Zebstika was weeeeeak.
-Off to Driftveil City.
-I thought Clay's name was... Clayton?

Pokemon team so far:
Servine, Solosis, Archen, Panpour, (Darumaka), (Sandile).

Pokemon in the parenthesis, I don't plan on using.

March 7th, 2011, 09:34 AM
After being defeated by Elesa twice yesterday, I decided to train up a Sandile up to a Krokorok.
Even with a newly evolved Krokorok, I still had trouble with her Emolgas, but I eventually won in the end this morning.
.
.
.
.
I also went back to Nacrene city to revive the fossil that I got from the backpacker.
Since I was in Nacrene, I decided to backtrack even further into Nuvema town to collect my prize for seeing 50 pokémon.
After all that, I'm now ready to face Clay.

Current team
Servine lv.32
Panpour lv.28
Tranquill lv.28
Whirlipede lv.28
Zorua lv.28
Scraggy lv.28

After school I have more of an urge to play Pokemon Black. Absence does make the heart grow fonder, it seems. XD

Anyway, I've evolved all of my Pokemon in my team. Now I just have to get Jellicient (I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy) and Hydreigon. I beat the fifth Gym Leader after healing my Pignite (now Emboar.) I'm currently at Route 5, after trading a Minccino for a Basuclin. I also caught an Emolga in a shaking patch. :> Oh, and I found a Cinccino in a shaking patch outside the Cold Storage, as well as a Stoutland. o_o

- Got White in the mail an hour ago.
- Picked Oshawott. Adamant, which is the nature I wanted (Samurott has better Attacks than Special Attacks)
- My ID is 02792 which is decent. I like nice IDs for no reason.
- Caught a Patrat for the Union Room.
- Discovered that you can't go into the Union Room until (most likely) after the first badge. Mean.
- Trained Oshawott a bit.
- Got Pansear

Currently in the first gym. About to battle the gym leader. Once I beat him and go through the Plasma event, I will trade over a Shiny Snivy for my team. Yay Shiny Snivy.

Dear Diary ♥

Autumn has struck. Unova is abound with pleasant flame colored leaves, and the crisp cool air fills the air. Today, I finally started my journey to become a Pokemon trainer! I was pretty nervous to venture forth into the big world, but so excited I could barely sit still! Thank goodness I have my friends Cheren and Bianca by my side! We're all starting our adventures today. We'll never be alone and it'll be more fun this way! ^__^

I awoke to a pretty little box sitting upon my desk this morning. Cheren was quick to arrive when I told him about the letter from Professor Juniper attached to the box, but as usual, Bianca was running behind. She finally arrived after a few moments and together, we opened the box! To our joy and cheer were three Pokeballs sitting perfectly upright. They insisted I pick the first Pokemon since the box was placed in my room. Very quickly, I got a really good feeling from the ball on the left, the very first one. I picked it up, and pressed the button in the middle. I'd always seen Pokemon trainers on TV opening their Pokeballs this way, and I thought it might be a little reckless to throw it in my room like they do in battles. Out from the bright white light appeared a little green snake with a yellow collar! With a yawn and a stretch, it gazed up at me. It was so.. mystical and surreal.. meeting my partner for the first time and gazing into it's eyes.

Immediately, I felt a bond grow between us. Like we were meant to meet each other. It must have been, because I quickly figured out that my partner was a female! According to the trainer guide that I read religiously, the Pokemon is called a Snivy. Snivy! My new partner! My excitement rose even further! Cheren and Bianca followed quickly, picking up the remaining two balls.

Bianca was quick to challenge me to a battle, and a battle we did! I won against her Oshawott, and I felt so fired up and excited! Cheren battled me soon after with his Tepig, and me and my new partner pulled out on the top! I've never felt so alive! This must be what being a trainer feels like! Quickly, we hustled onward to the Professor's lab to thank her and to get the rest of the information we'll need for our journey!

We received a Pokedex, and a few gifts from my mom and off we were! I'm sure you know the rest from here! We got a demonstration on catching Pokemon from the Professor and received our first five Pokeballs. <3 As Bianca and Cheren trailed off to put their new knowledge to the test, I immediately ran around to try out my capture skills and initiated a battle with a small puppy-like Pokemon, known as Lillipup. I tried to weaken it with my Snivy just as the professor said to do, but she ended up hitting it too hard and fainting it beyond capture-chance. Disappointed, but without loss of spirit, we searched onward! I ran into several other Lillipup after but to no avail for capture. My new partner sure is a tough cookie! She tends to hit a little harder than I would like.

Soon after having a small talk with her to hopefully have her calm down and not hit with so much strength when I want to capture something, we ran into an oddly colored Lillipup. It was a pretty blonde color instead of brown, with a strange greenish patch on it's back, unlike the dark brown that's usually there. A special Pokemon already?! I couldn't believe my eyes!! I had to catch this one no matter the cost! After a very gentle tackle from my Snivy, I threw a Pokeball with all my faith and all my might! Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle... click! I CAUGHT IT! Oh my goodness! I caught a special colored Pokemon!

I can't wait to show Cheren and Bianca what I got! But for now, I'm gonna run back home and get my Pokemon some well-needed rest!

My journey starts now! I cannot wait to see what all will happen!! <3

I have just reached Castelia City! I have switched my team around a bit; I dumped Maisy the Tepig for an Audino whom I nicknamed Bobby. I couldn't stand only using one Pokemon, so I ended up catching a Cottonee (dubbed Vera), too.

Current team:

Vera (Female Cottonee, Bold nature, Level 18)
Bobby (Male Audino, Sassy nature, Level 22)

- Beat Team Plasma in the Dreamyard. They are so contradictory. "We must liberate Pokemon from trainers. Oh, time for a battle! GO PURRLOIN!"
- Got the C-Gear
- Traded over Shiny Snivy with Eviolite. What a weird item name.

I am currenting training on Route 1. Snivy is at Level 5 right now.

March 7th, 2011, 01:52 PM
After a while, I decided to get my act together and just challenge Clay already. I headed over to the gym and who should be there but Cheren had gotten there already. Based on past events, I was half-expecting him to challenge me to a battle but no; there was simply a hold-up. Team Plasma, along with a man named Ghetsis - who reminded me of someone... - were demanding Clay hand over the members he had arrested. Ghetsis said something about only taking Pokémon away from wicked people - but unless that ten-year-old I spoke to earlier was some kind of murderer, I don't think it holds any truth. I was excited for some kind of fight to happen but no, the lazy bum simply handed them back! Before Cheren and I could argue anything, Team Plasma took off and Clay just hand-waved them away. Stupid lazy bum. I was going to teach him a lesson... or something. Meh.

Cheren decided he wanted to train a little more before the battle but I had trained previously, so I headed straight in was greeted to some kind of elevator contraption. It had open sides and everything. If I fell over the edge, I'd just keep on falling down to the center of the earth, or nearabouts. This thing was a death trap, but people were insisting on battling on it! Some trainers were even balanced on these steel girders - a single step forwards or backwards and that was it! Why do people feel the need to battle in such strange and eccentric places...? It didn't help that everytime Marik, my Liepard, used Assist, he grabbed Recover - even on the very first turn, when it was pretty useless.

The elevators were confusing. I kept getting lost and heading to the same level twice to the point that the trainers were giving me directions. I made it down the the bottom and finally got to face the magnificent Lazy Bum Clay! His Excadrill was a nightmare, but Pendant and Tempo, being water and grass type respectively, were certainly effective, and my squishy Tardy got the advantage over a Krokorok with his Psyshock. In the end, we were all worn out but we managed to win the Quake Badge!

It wasn't that dark yet outside and I'd already seen everything Driftveil had to offer so I decided to move on. I barely got a step onto route six when Bianca showed up and said something about be being extra strong so she wanted to battle. I'm stronger than her... so she wants to battle. What the Mew, Bianca?! Comet, my beautiful Zebstrika, easily took care of her and she handed me a reward: HM Fly! I taught it to Fawke straight away.

A quick battle through route 6 and I was at the entrance to a cave. It was covered with some sticky web that my much-ignored PokéDex told me came from a Galvantula. I didn't even want to know what one of those was; it shoots web and it's name end in -antual, thus I am staying the heck away from it. o__o
I didn't know what to do and was ready to turn back for the night when Lazy Bum showed up and cleared it away for me. Guess he's not so lazy after all. I went into the cave and... waitwhat. I got ambushed by ninjas?! I thought that only happened in stories?!?!?

And then there was N.

Oh dear lord he's pretty.

N said he's been waiting for me (omfg♥) and that he'd asked the Shadow Triad to bring me to him (omfg♥). He said I've been chosen. (omfg♥ and this is getting old fast). He told me he'd surmised that Cheren was striving for strength and that Bianca was sad about her lack thereof, but I... I was neutral, and for some reason that was good. I wasn't listening closely because he was complimenting me and being pretty which overhauled my systems. Then he said Team Plasma was waiting down below for me to battle, because he wanted to see me in action. Well, I'm not one to disappoint a bishie! Let's go!

And just in time to break me out of my happy mood was the one and only mood-killer Bianca. And this time, she'd brought Professor Juniper with her. What the Mew, Bianca?! (this is getting old fast, too) Prof. Juniper gave me a Lucky Egg which I was sure I might never use, and then pointed out some floating rocks. Yeah. Floating rocks. Turns out the electrical charges in this cave are strong enough to do freaky stuff like that. o__o

There were a few trainers to battle but none of them looked remotely goon-like so I was a little confused. It didn't help that Prof. Juniper kept showing up to rave about Klink or something, and Bianca saying she's a bodyguard or something. Stop distracting me, guys, I wanna get to N! ♥ So I ran away from them and came to a bridge and SUDDENLY, NINJAS! They felt the need to shimmy me across a bridge I was perfectly capable of walking over and informed me that the goons were downstairs. Thanks guys. Coulda told me earlier.

So I went downstairs and beat up as many goons as I could. These guys were standing between me and N. I would have hurt them more if they hadn't been saying stuff like "N is worried about you!" which made my knees melt and my heart shake or something to that manner. Also, these two random dudes gave me some things called Nuggets which, despite my hunger and initial impression, were actually chunks of pure gold. I've said it before, I'll say it again. People around here are generous o__o

N was waiting for me at the end. I refrained from doing a slow-motion Shojo run towards him. He told me that the world is grey, and he must separate the black of humans from the white of Pokémon. Then we battled. He lost, but told me it was because he was worried about his friends getting hurt, and I realised he saw his team the same way I did - not tools for battle, but as friends to grow strong beside. He wants to battle but he's so concerned for their health, he daren't. It made my heart ache for him.

Of course, Miss Mood-Killer, Bianca, showed up with Professor Responsible Adult in tow.
What that MEW, Bianca?!

N got angry fast. He wasn't happy with Prof. Juniper's motives, that didn't care about the hearts of the Pokémon, and said that the idea of a PokéDex simply revolted him. I agreed, and was about to tell him about the fact that the only Pokémon I 'owned' were the six I had befriended for my team, and I would never dream of letting Pokémon sit in stasis in a computer, completely isolated from others and from the world.

Of course, before I could say all that, Juniper said people's motives were different and what she was doing could be seen as a good thing. What. That's... that's just... gragh! How can you say something like that?! N's reaction was just the same and he kicked off, yelling at her about letting Pokémon suffer. It was all I could do not to chime in, simply because I could see the outrage on Juniper and Bianca's faces, and I didn't want them to be that angry at me, too. N stormed out, and Bianca wouldn't let me go after him to calm him down. What. The. Mew. Bianca?! Can't you see what's going on here?! I was so angry, I felt like crying, and before the stupid woman Juniper or idiot Bianca could say anything more, I stormed out too.

I ran as fast as I could, but it was too late, N was gone. He'd left not a trace of him ever being there.

I checked into the Mistralton Pokémon Center and cried myself to sleep.

Okay, now this is just becoming fanfic territory. But it's what I'm thinking while my player character goes through the interactions, so it's still a journal. I'm just taking liberties with the actions of the silent protagonist.

Key moments:
Beating Clay
Beating Bianca
Hating Bianca
Beating Team Plasma
Meeting N
Beating N
Reaching Mistralton
Crying myself to sleep.

Before you ask, yeah, those are my views on Pokémon, and part of the reason I love N so much. I know they're just pixels on a screen, but imagine if they were real, live animals with their own minds and feelings. How would you feel about stuffing them in tiny balls? If you think of the Poké Balls in the style of Pokémon Adventures, it feels a little better, so I do. But putting them in the PC? The anime avoided this with lab ranches and the likes, but imagine how it feels to be a Pokémon - living your life as normal, until a strange person sets their trained fighting pet on you, beats you to within an inch of your life and throws a strange capsule at you. From then on, you never see the light of day again. You never feel the wind in your fur, you never taste your favourite food, you never quench your eternal thirst. Why? Because you're stuck in suspended animation, converted to programming and sat in a virtual folder as part of someone's 'collection'.

I'm aware that this is pretty deep and straying away from the Journal topic, but this is why I acted the way I did in my journal, and the reason I will never catch more than six Pokémon unless it's really important for me to do so, such as with legendaries.

I love N so much because I recognise what he is fighting for. My player character is against him but I, myself, am not.

Time to document my adventure in pokemon White Version (Black will be coming later), and i'll do it in journal form!

Name: Kris (Kollyns)
Gender: Male

____________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Journal,

Yesterday I began my pokemon journey. As I had first choice in my starter pokemon, I chose the grass type Snivy. He proved to be very good when I defeated both Bianca and Cheren, at the cost of my room being completely destroyed. No worries, mom promised that she would clean it up, while giving me the Xtranceiver. I also received a Pokedex and five pokeballs from Professor Juniper and a Town Map from my mom.

On Route 1, I caught a Patrat, whom I named Watchman, and a Lillipup that I named Yorkie. I quickly moved on to Accumula Town, where Professor Juniper gave me a tour of the Pokemon Center. After that, I listened to some whackjob named Ghetsis give a speech about liberating pokemon. The sad thing is, some people actually seemed to consider his ideas.

Right after the crowd dispersed, another weirdo named N challenged me to a battle, and I defeated him easily. He said something about talking to pokemon...well, lucky him. You'd figure if he could talk to pokemon, he wouldn't have the same insane ideas as that Ghetsis figure.

I left Accumula Town and entered Route 2, where my mom called me on the Xtranceiver, before appearing behind me and giving me some running shoes she found while cleaning. I continued through Route 2, battling and defeating Bianca right before I reached Striaton City.

Before challenging the Striaton gym, I checked out the Trainer School. Inside, I defeated Cheren pretty easily, and he gave me some Oran Berries. Then I checked out the Dreamyard. There, some girl just gave me a Panpour, just gave me it! Well, I nicknamed it Monagua and headed to the Striaton Gym. I faced Chili, the fire type user of the three brothers, Cress, Cilan and Chili. It was rather easy to defeat him, as Monagua had an advantage against his Pansear.

After I left the gym, Professor Juniper's friend, Fennel, gave me TM01, Cut, so that I could explore the Dreamyard. I did so, only to meet up with Bianca. She too was after a Munna, and as soon as we entered the Dreamyard we saw one. When it saw us, it began to retreat, until some jerks from Team Plasma came up and began to kick her. That's some way to liberate the pokemon!

So of course I intervened and dominated those jerks. Musharna showed up and generated images of Ghetsis, causing the Plasma grunts to flee in terror. Fennel then showed up and collected the Dream Mist.

After everyone was gone, I scoured the Dreamyard until I found another Munna, which I caught and nicknamed Dream. I returned to Fennel's house and she explained what she was going to do with the Dream Mist.

I went to Route 3, and let's just say a lot of stuff happened. To sum it all up, I defeated Cheren in a battle and Team Plasma stole some little girl's pokemon, so me and Cheren got it back. I also caught many pokemon, a Woobat, Roggenrola (Roggy), Pidove (Valiant), and a Blitzle. After everything, I headed to Nacrene City. It wasn't the most attractive place, as it was really only warehouses and a museum.

I went to the museum, which was also the gym, and encountered the nutcase, N. I decimated his team and he walked off, muttering something about Reshiram. I proceeded into the gym and claimed the Basic Badge, but not without Lenora putting up a challenging fight. I lost the first time, so I trained by Pinwheel Forest, where I caught a few pokemon like Throh and Tympole.

When I did defeat Lenora, Team Plasma showed up, yet again, and stole the skull of the skeleton in the museum. So Lenora, Burgh and I went on a chase through Pinwheel Forest while Cheren and Bianca guarded the museum. Eventually we caught up with the grunt that had the skull, and another guy named Gorm (Jebus, what were these peoples parents thinking?!) made him give it back.

After I finished my sweep of Pinwheel Forest, I headed to Sky Arrow Bridge. Man, that was a pretty cool bridge! I then entered Castelia City, where even more things happened.

Basically, I explored every nook and cranny of the city, rescued Bianca's Munna from Team Plasma, recruited Dancers for some sort of dance team, became a...uh...person who gives surveys to people, and defeated Burgh in his gym. That's just the bare skeleton of what happened, but I don't feel like going into too much detail, plus I can't remember it all.

I headed to Route 4, defeated Bianca and Cheren (Jebus, can I get a break please?) and did a little exploring. I caught a Darumaka (Daruma), Sandile (Corenid), and Scraggy (Hood).

I did a little exploring of Nimbasa City next. I tried out the musicals, which were waaay too girly for me, I took a quick look of Gear Station, the Battle Institute, and both stadiums. I also came out of the musical place to see Bianca's freakin' dad yelling at her. God, he could be a little annoying and embarassing. I'm so glad i'm not Bianca. Though, Elesa eventually intervened and convinced Bianca's dad to let her continue her journey. Side Note: Elesa is HOT!

I decided to head back to Desert Resort where I caught a Yamask (Tut). Then, I decided to take a quick visit back to Castelia City. In the pokemon center, I received a Liberty Pass. I then boarded a boat to go to Liberty Garden where, of course, Team Plasma was wreaking havoc. I crushed them all and headed to the basement of the lighthouse, where I crushed the final Plasma grunt. And guess what, I am currently staring the mythical pokemon Victini in the eyes. Let's see how this works out...

A few hours ago i found myself bored so i switched on my DS to finally take on N & Ghetsis with my Samurott, Leavanny, Darmanitan, Scrafty, Archeops and Eelektross.
Then i watched the credits roll and just got the Super Rod from Looker, and the National Pokedex from "the other Professor Juniper."

... Now I'm going through Unova all over again from Route 1. to catch all the other Pokemon i didn't :D

March 7th, 2011, 06:10 PM
I was planning to post here yesterday but never got around to it! :<

So I've started my journey off with my partner Oshawott. I was in shock to find out it was a female as it is pretty rare to start off with a female starter, and especially since this was my first play through in the game, I was surprised. I decided not to nickname it, and so I went on ahead to battle my rivals. ---
What a complete mess! Phew, that was a close match. Oshawott vs. Tepig; Shinell vs. Bianca and the winner was yours truly. ;) The room had just resembled a pig's pen, only slightly neater. That is until the battle between myself and Cheren started where his defeat had probably shifted things around even more.

After playing around with the Pokémon given from Professor Juniper, it was there all three of us were headed towards.

There we went along to Striaton City, taking our first step into the beginning of our journey.

---

After reaching Professor Juniper and letting her explain to us the things we needed to do as we set off on our adventure, we split and began it all.

Oshawott happened to be my only Pokémon at the time. I decided I needed another Pokémon on my team if I wanted to have a slight advantage towards the first gym I planned to defeat. My first catch was a wild Purrloin, which hadn't lasted long at all with me. It continued to level up slowly, and mentioning the amount of times I had to heal it, not only did I waste some of my potions, but my time to head to the next city. So I went on towards Striation City. That is where I obtained the Fire Monkey out of the trio, Pansear. It was only going to be of use for the first gym, and it did nothing but good against Cilan as hoped.

After taking my joy time doing the following, I decided it was time to take things more seriously throughout the game. Now I have a partially developed team of 4 and in the midst of training to obtain my next gym badge from Lenora in Nacrene City.

xoxo; Kaori out!

Much Grinding later on my part, I've finally made my Dwebble the main contender against Elesa, and needless to say, Smack Down, combined with thick headed tenacity, I manage to beat her down, all of my guys contributing some point to another. Beating her and lowering the bridge, meeting the Cowboy-ist cowboy I've ever seen, Clay.

Gee, I wonder what his Pokemon type is. */sarcasm*

March 7th, 2011, 07:27 PM
Dear Journal,

Elesa and Clay weren't as hard as I thought they'd be! And now, for the first time in my journey, I'm not under leveled. I am NOT under leveled! And Queen, my now evolved Liepard, has a higher level than most of my team! She can finally pull her own weight and others', sometimes. I knew it was a good idea to keep her around.

While in the Relic Castle I captured a Sandile that quickly found his place in my team, and he's quite the powerhouse (unlike Queen as a Purrloin...) and he's one level away from evolving into a Krokorok. I bet he'll evolve in Chargestone Cave, oh I just met N... *sigh*

Over and out, for now. ♥

Tyrantrum
March 7th, 2011, 09:01 PM
Soooo.... let's see. I managed to get myself an Archen and go up from there. I decided to use Sandile because I love that thing so much! And also the fourth gym is electric type, so it was easier. I have obtained another three badges. I'm currently on route 8 training to get the Icirrus City gym badge.

My team so far:

Krokorok (♀) - Lv. 37
Moves: Rock Tomb, Embargo, Bulldoze, Crunch

Victini - Lv. 37
Moves: Confusion, Flame Charge, Headbutt, Charge Beam

Simipour (♂) - Lv. 35
Moves: Acrobatics, Work Up, Surf, Scald

Archeops (♂) - Lv. 38
Moves: Fly, Ancient Power, Dragon Breath, Crunch

Serperior (♂) - Lv. 36
Moves: Slam, Coil, Leaf Blade, Leaf Tornado

Scrafty (♂) - Lv. 39
Moves: Chip Away, Faint Attack, Crunch, Brick Break

Firet evolution Venipede to Whirllipede. WOW!! I haven't been that excited by evolution in so long! Third gym eat your heart out!

Zerrah.
March 8th, 2011, 03:35 AM
Two days down and I finally beat the 5th gym. On my first try no less, with only two of my Pokemon seeing action. The battle went a little something like:

-My Dewott vs his Krokorok
-Krokorok used Swagger
-Dewott uses Water Pulse
-Clay uses Hyper Potion
-Dewott OHKOs with Water Pulse
-Clay sends out Excadrill
-Excadrill uses Hone Claw
-Dewott uses Water Pulse
-Excadrill uses Slash
-Dewott KOs with Water Pulse
-Clay sends out Palpitoad
-Palpitoad KOs with Bulldoze
-I send out Sawk
-Sawk uses Double Kick
-Palpitoad uses Bulldoze
-Sawk KOs with Double Kick

I sat there in shock because I didn't expect it to be that easy. But! I'm not complaining.

Anywho, I just traversed Chargestone Cave, mutilated N's team. I will update my team later today, but right now I have to go to class.

March 8th, 2011, 04:08 AM
When I woke up this morning, I was still feeling pretty bummed about last night, so I decided to try and take my mind off things - not an easy task, I tell you - by taking a look around Mistralton. It seemed quaint enough, and would have been perfect were it not for the huge-ass airfield down the side of it. Turns out Mistralton is a landing spot for cargo planes. Huh.

I was trying to take a closer look at some of these planes when I got ambushed by a freaky old man who was raving about Klink. What the-- oh. He's Prof. Opinion's father, the one who she was looking for Klink for. He snatched my PokéDex from my bag - sneaky little-- - and did something to it, which he claimed had upgraded it. I can honestly say I had never even switched the thing on before, so I don't know what was different about it, but he skipped off chanting something about different forms?

The woman Juniper Senior was harassing came over and apologised to me, which instantly made me like her and even ignore the fact that her hair was ridiculously silly. She introduced herself as Skyla, the town's Gym Leader, and told me that while she was out flying her cargo plane (!) she had spotted an injured Pokémon and was off to go help it out (!!). Wow! After having to deal with a lazy bum like Clay, she certainly made a welcome change, and that she was willing to go so far for a Pokémon she didn't even own certainly strengthened my affable feelings towards her. She asked me to help and told me she was heading on over to the place she had seen the Pokémon fall, which was the Celestial Tower on route seven. Straight away, I set off after her.

Route seven was... unique, to say the most. It was spotted with balance beams that let you avoid the grass, but forced you to keep moving because they were too narrow to balance properly on. I tried it and fell straight away. It hurt my bottom. I ended up taking my chances with the long grass. We battled a few trainers, and I was so happy to see my team getting stronger with each fight. My happiness only strengthened when my squidgy Tardy, my Solosis, began to glow that magical white and gained a little stubby body and more goopy jelly - a Duosis! The first thing Tardigrade did was launch a hug at me with his stubby little arms! SO CUTE♥ I huggled him to death, nearly, and we continued on our way.

At some point, my Xtranceiver began to ring. I answered it half-heartedly, expecting Cheren or Mood-Killer, or even Prof. Idiot, but it was my mama! She was wondering how I was doing, since she hadn't heard from me in a while, and I told her about my team and about N (she teased me a bit) before wishing me well. It felt good to hear her voice again. It reminded me of Nuvema and I felt a little home-sick, but I remembered that Skyla had asked for my help, so I continued.

Around the foot of the Celestial Tower, which stood ominously in my path, I kept getting ambushed by tree-huggers. I wasn't complaining, though, because that special 'evolution' thing happened again, this time to my dear Fawke, who became a stunningly-beautiful Unfezant! With a happy heart, I reached the tower, and then the truth of what it was came crashing down upon me.

The Celestial Tower was a place where people laid their Pokémon friends to rest. I felt sad, but at the same time, there was this feeling of... peacefulness. I couldn't quite name it at the time, but it made me feel both heavy and light, because even though this was a sad place, it would be a beautiful place to end up in. The decorations for the inside were intricate and architectural, and brought a tear to my eye, for so much thought and care had been put into such a place. Every headstone was lovingly engraved and kept clean, truly cared for. I was so happy that a tower like this existed. It showed that Pokémon were to be cared for as much as humans, both in life and death.

What made me incessantly angry was the fact that people were using such a place to battle. Every floor I reached, I tried to go around and respect every single headstone, for these were the beloved partners of humans, lost to time, and it didn't help that every so often, someone who claimed to care insisted on battling me. I fought with anger against them, and apologised to each headstone that had borne witness to the combat. Needless to say, it took me a long time to reach the top, but I battled every trainer out of spite for what they had come here fore.

At the very top of the tower, Skyla stood. I looked around her for a Pokémon, but she informed me she had already given it a Max Revive and sent it on it's way. I was humbled by the care this woman took, even for a Pokémon that wasn't hers. Max Revives were expensive, but that faded to insignificance in the face of a Pokémon in need. Skyla asked me to ring the bell, to thank the spirits for letting her take care of the Pokémon, and I did so, marvelling in the sound of the metal and joining her in a prayer.

After she had left, I rang the bell again, and apologised to the spirits for fighting in their house. Then I made my way back to Mistralton. Seeing a landmark like the Celestial Tower strengthened my resolve and fueled my passion for the wellbeing of Pokémon, and feeling inspired, I prepared to battle Skyla, who I looked up to, at the Mistralton Gym!

Meh. It's getting harder to write these things because my memory sucks so I have to make notes as I play.

On a serious note, I truly did get a little teary seeing the Celestial Tower. Call me taking-it-too-seriously, but ever since I was a small child, seeing the Pokémon Tower for the first time, I've felt strong, positive feelings to the places where Pokémon are laid to rest, since it showed how devoted people really were to their partners. It makes me happy that every generation, the graveyard seems to get more and more extravagant, because it shows just how much people care, and how GameFreak recognises this caring as well.

Dear Diary ♥ Part One

Hey! It's me again! Oh man so much happened today, I can't wait to tell you! Well, first things first, I got to meet an oddly colored Oshawott too! Someone I know wanted to give it to me as a gift. Of course I accepted, and now I have a little bright blue Oshawott with a pinkish shell to match my blonde Lillipup!

We ventured onward, initiating many battles with wild Pokemon, and eventually some trainers down the line too! But let me tell you what happened before that. We encountered a gang of strangely dressed people who talked about liberating Pokemon from their trainers, with the name "Team Plasma". What a bunch of weirdos. Why free a Pokemon from it's trainer if it's truly happy there? I don't understand. They cleared out after their speech, the crowd following soon after. From the crowd stood a young man with long green hair who approached me and Cheren. He introduced himself as N, and he said something about what our Pokemon were saying. It was strange, but so interesting! Then suddenly, he challenged me to a battle!

In no time at all my Snivy beat him horribly, and he admitted defeat, walking off saying "I never knew Pokemon would say such things..". What an odd guy. Maybe we'll meet again someday? But, for now, I got some training to do! If I meet N again someday, I don't want to give him a chance to get ahead of me! See you!!

Dear Diary ♥ Part Two

After a long trail through the wilderness, battling trainers and wild Pokemon to-and-fro, we made it to Striaton City! From there I searched and searched for the gym leader, eager to get my first badge! When I went inside the Trainer's School, to my surprise, stood Cheren at the black board! Of course he challenged me to a battle, and of course I arose out on the top once again. :D He told me that the gym leader had JUST left the trainer's school! I rushed off to go meet up with him or her, and saw a young man with short green hair standing in front of the gym's entrance.

I soon found out that this is the gym leader! How amazing! He told me to go train in a place called the Dream Yard. I got directions from a town person and ran off towards it. There I battled a few more trainers, and met a docile trainer who gave me a Panpour!! Wow what a gift that is! This should make facing those fire types even easier that the gym leader apparently has. Whoever they were was sure nice. I ran off into the gym, battled all the trainers, and met the trio of gym leaders awaiting my arrival : Chili, Cress, and Cilan. I was to fight the leader named Chili, out of the three of them.

It was plain as day that he fights with fire-types, so I was a little nervous. But I was ready with my new Panpour to take him down! And down he surely went! I got my first badge today! The Trio Badge. <33

I'm still flaming in excitement haha! As I walked out I was met by Fennel, Prof. Juniper's college buddy that she wanted me to meet up with. She gave me the HM Cut, which I taught to my Panpour and gave me the mission to find Munna at the Dream Yard. Off I ran in a hurry! I cut down the tree blocking my path originally and made my way into the Dream Yard, from which Bianca had appeared as well. As we walked up to the front, we met the Pokemon Fennel was looking for! Munna! Then out of nowhere, Team Plasma showed up and tried to seize it for their evil plans! Attacking and hurting it! Grrr, my blood was boiling. No way was I gonna let them hurt that poor Pokemon!

A battle was initiated and I won without breaking a sweat. Their leader showed up in some strange kind of illusion and they ran off scared. Out from the shadows approached a bigger form of Munna, and Fennel came up behind us. We found that the Pokemon was named Musharna, and that Fennel was looking for these Pokemon for their Dream Smoke abilities. We went back to her lab with Bianca staying behind, and I found out what the Dream Smoke does, and I received the C-Gear from Fennel! Wow, what an awesome device! I can't wait to use it myself. <3

So, as you can see, a lot happened! I'm already psyched up to go face the second gym leader and get my next badge! That's sure to be a crazy day too!

I better let my Pokemon get some rest now. Until later!

(Well, since everyone else is going at it)

Dear Journal...

It's only been a few hours since I wrote, but lord knows a lot has happened. Not only have I beat Clay and gotten my badge, but I did a little grinding off in the thunder tunnel. Dwebble, Blitzle, and Tranquil ALL evolved! My team now consists of a Crustle, Zebstrika, Samurott, Unfezent, Gurdurr and Simisear! It's a little scattered, but they haven't failed me yet. Heh, funny how I only expected Dwebble to help me with Elesa, and he ended up getting to be one of my strongest team mates.

In the tunnel I met up with N again. Dudes a little random, never the same team whenever I meet him. I beat him of course, and made it out of the tunnel and into Mistralton City. Apparently these guys like Flying types, I hope Zebstrika is up to the chance...

Well, I'm off to the tower to meet the Gym leader or something of the like. Wonder what it'll be like...

March 8th, 2011, 05:50 AM
Finally got my White! (It should've come already on Friday...)
So here's what I've done at the time when I was at the school (played between lessons if someone thinks something other xD):

- Chose male and named myself Late as always
- Picked up Snivy and won both Cheren and Bianca
- Visited Professor Juniper and got Pokédex
- Still missing button to jump over "How to catch a Pokémon" section (you didn't need to watch them in older games)
- Caught Lillipup (Lv4) and Patrat (Lv2)
- Went to Pokécenter
- Heard what Ghetsis had to say and won N's Choroneko (still can't remember it's english name)
- Caught Choroneko and "killed" some trainers
- At the gym, gonna play more soon

As you probably noticed, I caught everything I saw as I'm one of these guys who actually are gonna fill whole Pokédex. That's the meaning of the game for me. Gonna train my Pokémon and put it on PC after it's evolved (others than Snivy). I don't care about Nature, IV, EV or other things like those, as I'm not actually that competitive and can still get through the game with low-leveled (becuase of only evolving my Pokémon and then put them to PC) Pokémon. Gonna think other things after game is completed.

Okay, here's what happened:

-Challenge the Castelia City Gym, but they were specializing in Bug-types, I decided to catch a Darumaka.
-Darumaka pwned Arti.
-Wandered forever in the desert just to take Archen.
-Archen kinda sucks right now. After he hits the yellow line, he's pretty much useless.
-Went to uh, Nimbasa City.
-The Gym is nice, but YOU HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE ROLLER COASTER. D:
-Elesa is tough.
-Er, no. Elesa's Emolga is tough. Her Zebstrika went down in, I dunno, 2-3 moves?
-To beat Elesa's Emolga, decided to catch a Sandile.
-It worked! Her Emolga kept abusing Aerial Ace, so I decided to torment.
-The battle was long, she kept healing her FIRST Emolga. Rock Tomb only has 10 PP, you know?
-Sandile went down, but it's speed was down because of the effect of Rock Tomb, so Archen Ancient Powered her.
-Second Emolga got Ancient Powered too. Yeah, I dunno why it's suddenly not annoying and weak.
-Elesa's real Pokemon was Emolga. Zebstika was weeeeeak.
-Off to Driftveil City.
-I thought Clay's name was... Clayton?

Pokemon team so far:
Servine, Solosis, Archen, Panpour, (Darumaka), (Sandile).

Pokemon in the parenthesis, I don't plan on using.

The last update I has was when reaching Driftveil City? Seriously?

Okay, so well, beaten Clayton and boy, was he weak. But his Gym is so cool, just confusing. I kept going up and down, up and down.

Well, anyways, after I beated Clayton I went and got to Chargestone Cave. That was so cool. Floating rocks, wtf! Anyways, met Prof. Juniper and Bianca, lah-dee-dah, got 3 ninjas to escort me to N, and, yeah, I don't know why but I can't pay attention to what N was saying, but beaten the crap out of him, so went to Mistralton City and first thing on my mind was find a Litwick. Litwicks are so cool. 8D Anyways, going to the top of Celestial Tower.

Highlights of my day: Arceos evolving, and Litwick. 8D

March 8th, 2011, 09:01 AM
Finally it was time to face the trainer who had earned so much respect from me; Skyla! I found her gym to be at the back of the airstrip, meaning I had to make my way past some huge planes. My bike made the trip a little shorter. I had stocked up well at the Pokémon Center so I was ready to take her on!

I was shocked to find the method of transport in the gym to be giant cannons. I had faced open elevators, a track-changing rollercoaster, riddles hidden in books and all manner of other tricks, but to physically shoot myself across the room?! Surely this couldn't be safe?! This was only confirmed when at one point, I ended up hitting the wall and nearly knocking myself out. I had to sit down for a minute or two to stop the dizziness and only then was ready to challenge Skyla.

For all I respected her and all I had been prepared for, she was disappointingly easy to beat. Two of her Pokémon went down in a single hit and the third only took a little longer. I was a little crestfallen that a battle I had been looking forwards to so much had been so short, but I accepted my Jet Badge with pride, for I had now earned six badges in four days!

Happy with my progress, I bade Skyla a goodbye as she directed me through Twist Mountain, where she had heard Team Plasma were up to no good. This made me feel a little happier as I thought of the chance N would be there, and motivated me to traverse the mountain at once. I wasn't expecting him to be waiting for me outside the gym.

Did I mention how pretty he was? Fwah♥

He looked a little sad, and I asked him why. He said he was sad that Pokémon were used for combat, as it meant they had to hurt one another. He had grown up with Pokémon, and didn't want to see them in pain. I said that was true, but sometimes the pain is needed because in the end, we are stronger for it. N seemed a little happier about that and asked to speak to one of my Pokémon. I was confused until he explained that due to his childhood with Pokémon, he could understand them well. He picked out my Duosis, Tardigrade, since it was the newest addition to my team, and learned from Tardy that I was from Nuvema Town and that Prof. Idiot had sent me out to fill the PokéDex, which I had done a terrible job with as I was unwilling to store Pokémon in a PC. This made him really happy, and me too, as it was what I had tried to tell him at the end of Chargestone Cave but had been unable to around the present company.

N decided my Pokémon were happy enough, and briefly explained what was going to happen. The man from before, Ghetsis, he was trying to find two stone, the Dark Stone and the Light Stone, which were said to be the remains of the ancient Dragons from the legends. I remembered that legend; it was said that at the touch of the Hero, the Dragon would re-awaken and help the Hero realise his dream.

N wanted to be that hero. He wanted the Dragon to help him separate humans and Pokémon. That was still his dream; I hadn't been able to change his mind. D:

He seemed to realise how I felt because he said that he wants to be the hero because then he can change the world without force. No one would get hurt and it would be worth it in the end, but it would be sad for people like me, as I would be separated from my friends. I noticed him stutter over that part, and at once an understanding formed between the two of us. We had the same motive, to an extent. We had the same idea. It was N who was taking it further, though, and in that instant, he seemed to realise how far he might be going.

Before I could argue anything else, he left without a trace, and even though I ran as fast and as far as I could, he was already gone. How does he do that?!

I had a lot to think about as I headed in the direction of Twist Mountain.

Grargh. Getting further and further away from what actually happens here. Maybe I should adapt this into a fanfic or something when I'm done recording it here.

Key Moments:
Beating Skyla in 5 hits. She's blooming easy. Shouldn't have been the sixth leader when she's that easy to beat.
Meeting N again, and coming to an understanding of sorts. At least I know what he's up to now.

Next up: Twist Mountain!

Nameless.

Dear Diary ♥

Today was amazing! I got my second badge from the gym leader named Lenora in Necrene City! Gosh her gym's puzzle was hard to get through. I gotta say, Team Plasma is starting to become annoying. They say their cause is good but they are stealing unwilling Pokemon from trainers! They aren't even so much as asking the Pokemon if they want to leave! How horrible can you be? Good thing me, Bianca, and Cheren are always where they are to help out the trainers and Pokemon they hurt!

Something else marvelous happened too! Enveloped by a bright white light in mid-battle against Plasma goons, both my Oshawott and my Lillipup evolved!! I now have a beautiful and powerful Dewott and a gold and silver Herdier! Thanks to them, the battle against Lenora was a cake walk!

But I gotta run cause Lenora's museum is in trouble! Team Plasma again no doubt.

I'll get back to documenting my journey later! See ya!!

Time for a minor update [:

______________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Journal,

I can't believe it! I entered a battle with Victini, weakened it, and after many failed attempts; I caught it. I nicknamed him Victor and left the lighthouse, encountering Professor Juniper and some policeman leaving with captured Team Plasma grunts. After that, I returned to Castelia City and challenged the Battle Company. Victor defeated every single trainer there!

After that, I walked all over Desert Resort, and i'm pretty sure I defeated every trainer there. A woman also gave me a Cover Fossil!

I then went to the amusement park, where N showed up. He took me onto the ferris wheel, before telling me he was king of Team Plasma. That came as a bit of a shock, though at the same time not surprising. We battled and he failed miserably.

I then went to Route 16, Lostlorn Forest, and Route 5. I defeated every trainer I could and my pokemon grew a lot stronger, along with capturing a few new pokemon. Now we're going to train some more and then challenge Elesa to a battle.

March 8th, 2011, 01:13 PM
Departing from Mistralton City, I headed in the direction of Twist Mountain. At the base of the stairway, who should turn up for a completely random and pointless battle but Cheren? I easily beat him up and he turned all angsty from not being strong enough, but it just proved that what N had told me was true. I was about to turn away and leave him when Stalker of the Century, Alder, jumped down from a cliff face (WTF?) and told him to lighten up, then gave us both HM Surf and left. Uh... what? Cheren stormed off into the mountain and left me be. How pointless.

As soon as I stepped through the doorway, Cheren was waiting for me - oh please, not again, Cheren - and so was Big Chief Lazy Bum, Clay. What was he doing here? Turns out he had heard about Team Plasma being here, too, and was checking it out but hadn't found anything, so it was up to two children to do the work for him. He really is lazy. ._.

Twist Mountain was tough. I wasn't used to the rocky terrain and the internal maze meant I made slow progress. There were plenty of trainers hidden behind rocks and stuff, jumping out and shouting a heart-attack inducing slogan at me before sicking their Pokémon on me. Damn. These guys need to find a better hobby.

If you can't tell by now, at this point I was getting tired. I had travelled so far today already, and although the mountain posed a challenge, I didn't want to spend a second night in Mistralton since I had already seen everything it had to offer. I was ready to sleep as it was, so perhaps taking on the challenge so late was a mistake. One good thing came about, however; during a tough battle with a trainer's Sawk, my dear Tempo shone brightly and stretched out, becoming an elegant and majestic Serperior! He was beautiful! I gave him a huge hug and we beat the poop out of that Sawk.

Right at the end of the tunnels, as I was ready to collapse from exhaustion, I saw a couple of Team Plasma goons. I wasn't ready to battle them, but thankfully, Cheren had done it for me. Wow. He actually beat up some bad guys instead of stopping me from doing so, like everyone else seems to. Then he pointed out how hypocritical they were and told them to release their Pokémon. I was about to chime in when one of them mentioned they'd found what they were looking for for their lord N.

waitwhat. They found one of the special Stones? They had already moved on and started talking about taking the world over by force - which completely contradicted what N had said about not wanting to use force. I tried to get more information but they fled and I was too tired to go after them. And as soon as I left the cave, who should be there but Prof. Idiot Senior. I politely pointed out that a couple of bad guys had JUST run this way and why couldn't he have stopped them, but he just said something about a tower and a dragon and disappeared. Good job, Professor. I can see why you're seen as an intellectual.
/sarcasm

Something he said stuck out, though. He mentioned that the tower north of the city just ahead, Icirrus City, was known as Dragonspire Tower. It reminded me of what N had said before... about the legend of a Dragon who helped the mythical Hero seek the truth, and created the region of Unova. When the region was complete, the Dragon fell into a deep slumber in Dragonspire Tower, and left the Light Stone as it's earthly remains, awaiting the touch of the Hero to awaken it and to seek the truth once more.

The name of the Dragon was Reshiram. And if Team Plasma were telling the truth, and they'd found the Light Stone, that meant N was going to take the place of the Hero and use the Dragon slumbering in Dragonspire Tower to create his dream of a separated world.

N... I really hope you know just what you're doing...

Thus, Twist Mountain is over and next up, challenging Brycen and possibly heading to Dragonspire Tower.

I'm scareded D:

Key Moments:
Receiving 'Surf'
Tempo evolving into a Serperior (SO PRETTY♥)

My party is:
Simisear

None of them are very effective against the Nimbasa gym. I think I might need to do some more Pokemon catching.

So at around ten am, I forced my lazy butt out of bed and into my grandmas car so she could take me to gamestop and I could finally obtain the game ive been waiting for for what seems like years even though it was only around six months and even though I was home by eleven, I wasn’t able to play the game until a few hours ago. (run-on sentence for the win?) I currently have around two and a half hours clocked in, and im on route three.


Notable Events:

-Chose male protagonist.
-Chose Snivy. <3
-Decided against giving nicknames to my Pokemon, hoping this method will familiarize me with the American names.
-Lost one of the first battles to Cheren. Doh. >.<
-Feels bad for Bianca. :/
-Route 1 was a breeze.
-Not sure why, but I love Accumula Town. <3
-Caught a Purrloin and a Patrat on route 2.
-Got my first badge. :D
-I saw my first shaking patch in the Dreamyard, but got intercepted by a wild Pokemon. :(
-Lmao @ little preschooler wanting his Pansage to hyper beam. x)
-Lmao @ fact that you can climb on a slide, but you cant sit on chairs or lay in beds anymore.
-Caught Pidove.


Current Team:


http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/6a/Spr_5b_495.png
Snivy | lv 14 | Overgrow
tackle | growth | vine whip | wrap
I am DEFINITELY keeping him on my team. Hes just so cute. :D im unsure if wrap is a worthy move though. :/

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/c/cf/Spr_5b_504.png
Patrat | lv 13 | Run Away
tackle | leer | bite | sand-attack
I heard bad things about this guy, so I was kind of iffy on whether I should have caught him or not. Im not sure if im going to keep him throughout my play-through. Only time can tell.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/84/Spr_5b_509.png
Purrloin | lv 12 | Limber
scratch | fury swipes | assist | sand-attack
Basically the same thing as Patrat, except she doesn’t have STAB, unless shes lucky and assists bite. Also, I cant tell whats worse: scratch or fury swipes. >.<

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a5/Spr_5b_519.png
Pidove | lv 10 | Super Luck
gust | growl | leer
Hes the newest member of my team. I havnt even tried him out. :o


Boxed:

After a couple days of training my team and running around the south-east side of Unova, ive come to you all with another update. :D

Notable Events:

-After running around Route Three, I ran into my first Aiduno. :D It felt good to finally murder one of those pink creatures ive heard so much about. >:)
-Caught a Tympole.
-Running around in the area right before Pinwheel Forest, I almost died in a wild double battle. D:
-It was then that I realized I had a major weakness to fighting type moves. :/
-During the battle with N before the gym battle, my Snivy evolved. :D
-Obtained second badge. :)
-Traveled all the way back to Nuvema Town to search for hidden items using the Dowsing Machine.
-Caught a Venipede in Pinwheel Forest.
- Purrloin Evolved. :D
-WTF. There are cars? :O
-Whhyyyyy is this bridge soooo loooonnnggggggg.

Current Team:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f2/Ani496MS.png | lv 20 | Overgrow
Growth | Leech Seed | Tackle | Leaf Tornado
For some reason he wasn’t hitting as hard as I liked, but since his evolution, hes doing just fine. Hes holding the Miracle Seed I obtained from some girl in Nacrene City.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/02/Ani504MS.png | lv 19 | Run Away
Leer | Hypnosis | Crunch | Tackle
I know Tackle gets STAB, but I cant tell whether it or Crunch does more. He evolves super soon. Too bad he has a sucky ability.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/53/Ani510MS.png | lv 20 | Limber
Assist | Sand-Attack | Fury Swipes | Thief
As a Purrloin, I was really thinking about dropping her from my team. Even with STAB Thief, she barely did any damage. But recently, shes had lots of luck with Assist, getting moves such as Crunch, Round, and Roost. I havnt tested her out as a Liepard yet, but her stats look really good compared to my other team members.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/aa/Ani519MS.png | lv 19 | Super Luck
Roost | Work Up | Quick Attack | Air Cutter
Air Cutter plus Super Luck equals win. And if for some reason he does get low on HP, Roost takes care of the job.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/64/Ani535MS.png | lv 19 | Swift Swim
Supersonic | Bubblebeam | Mud Shot | Round
This guy is my main Special Attacker. Plus, he isnt weak to Fighting, which like half my team is. Too bad he has a not-so-good ability.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/49/Ani543MS.png | lv 19 | Swarm
Protect | Screech | Poison Tail | Pursuit
The newest member of my team. I havnt tried out Poison Tail yet, but im hoping its much better than the weak Poison Sting he was using before. I don’t use Protect, and rarely do I use Pursuit. Contemplating whether I should exchange it for Rock Smash.

Well got my english copy of White today. I picked Oshawott and it managed to get to level 16 before getting my first badge and I got that Pansear to use leer a few times to make the Pansage's defense low, easy win. Right now I am in route 4 with three badges and my pokemon include:
Dewott Lv.28
Zebstrika Lv.27
Sandile Lv.21 (recently caught)

I've just passed through Castelia City, it was amazing to look at but I hope they don't do that for future pokemon cities. It was nice as a one off but it didn't feel like pokemon when I was walking through it.

On my journey through Castelia City I managed to get a Fire Stone for my Pansear, I'm not going to evolve him yet, I've heard he learns Crunch so will wait until that happens!

There was absolutely tonnes to explore, the Battle Company was a lot of fun, I like having lots of trainer battles in a short amount of time :)

Burgh, the gym leader was kind of a disappointment, Pansear pretty much took care of everything he had, was hoping for more of a challenge but oh well!

On to route 4!

Edit: I've just passed through route 4 and managed to catch myself a Sandile and a Darumaka, I don't really have any intention to use Darumaka but you know, you've gotta catch em all ;)

Had a look around the Desert Resort and am intrigued as to what the Relic Castle will bring later in the game, managed to catch myself a Yamask from within the castle as well as a Sigilyph just outside.

As the game moves on I am starting to see the weaker pokemon in my party so when I get to the next town I'll be having a look through my box to see if there's any other polkes I want to give a chance! :)

Since I had arrived in Icirrus City, I had worried about what might be happening at the Dragonspire Tower, but that was no excuse not to challenge the Gym here. Heading inside, I was greeted by a freezing blast of wind as the warm air rushed in from behind me and the coolness of the ice swept to meet it. The whole place was full of ice. It was colder even than the Cold Storage, and I was quickly shivering. The puzzles were pretty hard, too, and all involved sliding across the ice and around corners that rotated on switches. By the end, my knees were raw from falling over on the ice and my team was breathless from challenging the various gym trainers.

Finally, we reached Brycen. His team was strong and high-powered, but I managed to get a good few hits in, with Tardy Psyshock-ing at first and combinations of Comet's Fire Charge and Tempo's Mega Drain. We came through victorious and Brycen handed over the Freeze Badge, confirming my seventh gym victory!

As I left the gym, I found both Cheren and Bianca waiting for me outside. Cheren was still babbling about his purpose and Bianca was still whining about not being strong, so when Brycen came outside, I was half-expecting him to tell them both to shut up. However, he instead called out to someone else, even though I could see no one beside us three. I nearly had a heart attack when SUDDENLY, NINJAS, but it was the Shadow Triad! They had come to talk to me specifically... Ghetsis had requested I climb the Dragonspire Tower, for N was waiting for me. N! Waiting for me! I started running but Cheren stopped me, and he and Brycen agreed they should climb the tower too. I pointed out the message wasn't for them, but they left anyway...

I had to get there first! I ran as fast as possible to the foot of the tower, only to be greeted by Klink-Man, the most useless professor this side of Castelia. He said Brycen and Cheren had already gone in, as well as a bunch of Plasma goons, then gave me some cake and sent me on my way. Wha? I don't see how cake's gonna help me, but... hey, free cake!

When I stepped in, I noticed the ground shaking. An earthquake?! No, it wasn't the ground... it was the Tower! The Dragon must have awakened... had N done this?! I ran upstairs only to see that Cheren and Brycen were fighting off a hoard of goons, so I ran past them only to be challenged by a bunch of them myself. They were all angry that I had hurt their Pokémon, but they were hurting mine at the same time, idiots! Plus, N had asked me to be here, so why were they stopping me? Wouldn't that be going against their king's orders?

The shaking was getting worse and I started to worry. Was N in danger? Or had he succeeded in taming the Dragon?

After a couple of floors, I noticed there were no more goons stopping me - at least, until I ran into a bunch of them, and an old man who called himself Giallo. He set four of them on me at once, and I had to beat them up one by one, but I was determined and broke through them, sprinting across the room and up the stairs and--

N. He was stood in the center of a chamber, surrounded by four columns. Sunlight shone in from above, lighting him up ethereally and a breeze from outside tugged through his hair and clothes. And behind him... a beautiful white Dragon. He had done it. He had found the Light Stone and revived the Dragon of Legend. Was he truly the Hero?

He noticed me and asked me if I was amazed. I was, and he sounded as though he was too. He told me that he was going to use the power of the hero to command the Dragon, Reshiram, and make his dream of separation a reality. He would go to the Pokémon League and defeat the Champion in the last great battle of this era, and end the suffering of Pokémon once and for all.

I tried to argue with him, that making trainers release their Pokémon wasn't the way to end Pokémon cruelty, but he was too excited to listen. Here he was, facing such a great power that was willing to realise his dream... nothing could stop him now.

He turned to me and told me that if I wanted... I should find a Dragon too. I asked how that could be, when there was only one Dragon, and here it was. He laugh and told me, did I remember the end of the creation legend? The two brothers who had used the Dragon to create Unova argued and fought, and the original Dragon split in two, each one supporting one side of the battle. This was but one of two Dragons, and I should find the Dark Stone and revive the other dragon, Zekrom.

Then, perhaps, we could be Heroes together...♥

I was helpless as I watched him swing up onto Reshiram's back and fly away, through the open roof of the Tower. I don't know how long I stayed there, staring at the spot where he had been stood, but eventually Brycen and Cheren found me, and guided me back to the foot of the tower, where everyone else was waiting. As they tried to work out what had happened, I stayed silent, because I was confused.

Should I help them to stop N, or should I help N realise his dream, and maybe help him realise a new one that wouldn't be so devastating?

Stalker of the Century, Alder, arrived and pretty much filled everyone in, eliminating my first option. He said the Dark Stone was likely to be somewhere in the Relic Castle, and he would go look for it to make sure Team Plasma couldn't get it.

He wasn't going to get it, though. I made my mind up. I was going to revive Zekrom and use his powers to help N, but also to stop him. I would let Reshiram stop the pain and suffering of Pokémon, but I would make Zekrom pick out those who shared a true bond with their Pokémon and keeping them together. I would let friendships remain in tact while destroying cruelty once and for all.

That was my dream. It would be bigger and better than N's, and I would be the one to bring it about.

It was my turn to become a Hero.

Thus, Dragonspire Tower is complete. Next up, Relic Castle!

Key Moments:
Beating Bryce
Witnessing Reshiram's revival
Knowing what to do next

EDIT: I'm probably not going to post anything else here until tomorrow... despite doing so little in-game today. D:
I normally don't like to spend more than one night in each town, but I'm really tired (I think I'm getting ill D: ) and I'll do loads more tomorrow to make up for it.
So tomorrow, Relic Castle, plus gym number eight, plus whatever the heck happens between gym eight and the league, even if that's just grinding or whatever. :V

I've just started my journey after choosing my starter Pokemon Snivy.
Took on both Bianca and Cheren defeating both their Oshawott and Tepig, then onwards to the Professor Juniper Pokemon Lab to recieve my Pokedex and gave my Snivy the nick name "Smuggy".

After leaving the Lab, my Mom gave Cheren, Bianca and myself a Town Map.. cool right :D
After like three boring minutes of Professor Juniper catching herself a Patrat and passing along five Pokeballs to me. I headed North to Accumula Town catching two new Pokemon, "Pupps" the Lillipup and a Patrat whom I nicknamed "Scout" which I thought was fitting for her.

I feel really bad that I haven't started writing on here from the beginning of my journey. But the last few days I haven't really had time to sit and write it out all from memory, cause I've never really been home.

So, just recently I've gone back through all the routes and found all the good TMs that I've missed, and I've also picked myself up a Larveta(sp?) egg. I can't wait for my firey moth of doom. >:)

I am on my way to capture Reshiram, and my team is as follows:

Dear Journal,

I couldn't have picked a worse time to write in you now. As I stand outside in the Desert Resort - which by the way has a misleading title - my Swadloon that I caught back in Pinwheel Forest as a Sewaddle evolved into a Leavanny. She sure is a beautiful one and strong too. She reminds me of Burgh's Leavanny that I battled against right before I received my Insect Badge. Which now places me with three badges total by the way.

A lot has happened since my last log. I've captured quite a few new Pokémon along the way too. After I had arrived to Castelia City only a few days ago, I had decided to head out to Route 4 to catch up on some training. While there, I ran into a tough little Scraggy and a feisty Darumaka. Seeing how strong they were, I decided to catch them and use them against Burgh for their first gym experience. It was a great choice too, because they both did a great job.

Well, it's getting a little tough to write anymore with all the wind and sand blowing onto the paper, so I'm just going to stop here for now. Maybe when I arrive to the next city over, I'll fill you in on all what's happened since.

Until next time...

JAKE'S POKEMON WHITE ADVENTURE: PART ONE.



So, I stepped into the Wonderful world of Unova today, and appeared in my bedroom with my Childhood friend Cheren, awaiting the Arrival of Bianca, my other Childhood pal. So once Bianca arrived, we, or rather, I went to peek inside the little Box with a Green Ribbon on it, only to find three Starter Pokemon:

I move onto Nimbasa City and have a brief look around the Battle Subway, I'm not going to touch that until I've finished with the main game!

The Ferris Wheel ride with N was very weird, I don't plan on going on another one anytime soon. I was expecting a lot from the city when I saw the two stadiums and the musical theatre, but was disappointed by all three, I decided to get onto the Gym leader and get out of the town.

I'd recently caught a Sandile on route 4, he and my Audino made quick work of the gym, I'm hoping to come across a bigger challenge sooner rather than later.

One thing I was happy about with my trip to Nimbasa was the items I managed to pick up! The Macho Brace will be good for when I start to EV train, Soothe Bell, good for evolving certain pokes! Also a Sun Stone and Strength to top it off!

As I moved onto Route 5 I had a pretty good battle with Cheren, I can see him being a challenging trainer later in the game. But his Liepard, Panpour, Tranquill and Servine were no match for my Whirlipede, Blitzle, Pansear and Dewott! :)

On my way through to the next town I also managed to catch myself a Solosis, Liepard and Minccino, not planning to add them to my team, but I wanted them!! :p

Looks like Driftveil City is where my adventure will continue....

March 9th, 2011, 09:56 AM
Well, I have to say that Unova's Gym are the most un-challenging one so far. The only trouble I had was from Elesa.

Anyways, beat Iris with my Archeops, and now to the Pokemon league!

Update

After catching my Scout, I finally reached Accumula Town meeting up with both Professor Juniper and Bianca, the Professor 'made' me heal up my Pokemon and shown me the PC & Pokemart, in the PokeCentre!!
After leaving Cheren wanted me to listen to some boring speech from Ghetsis of Team Plasma about Pokemon Liberation.. Only to be followed with a battle from the mysterious N. My "Pupps" completely owned him :)

Now heading through Route. 2 battling the three trainers to strengthen up my team after recieving the Xtransciever from my Mom, I get challenged by Bianca with her Lillipup and Oshawott which was another win for me.
Now in Staiton City I collected a few items including the Liberty Pass. (Victini) ;) Heading East i battled a couple of other trainers only to be given a new Pokemon, my "Paddle" the Panpour. Using Paddle I defeated Cheren with his Tepig, back on Route.2 I randomly caught myself a Purrloin.. "Scrath" who i have no intentions of using, now I'm about to challenge the Straiton City Pokemon Gym for the Trio Badge.

I also just caught Reshiram after I spent several hours trying to defeat the Elite Four. Right now I'm resting there, I havent gone anywhere after I've beaten Team Platinum because it took a lot of effort to get to this point so quickly.

Picked up my game on Sunday and started with Tepig (named Floink). Got my water monkey (named sux) and beat the first gym. Caught a few fodder Pokémon and as soon as I could, traded in my Litwick, Vanillite, Cherubi, and Joltik. Had to train them all up from level 1 (ugggh) and then even more because I couldn't beat the second gym (more ugggh) but after that I was on my way. :D Took down the next few gyms easily. Added a Sandile to my team with the WORST POSSIBLE NATURE (modest fml). Then added Ducklett.

I'm heading through the Electric Cave now (forget its english name). My current team:

I'm thinking of ditching Dominico. :[ He's just not really doing it for me, sadly. But I'll keep him until the point I (possibly) find a replacement, I suppose.

(I should stop procrastinating and go do this stupid cave, lol.)

Dear Journal...

Lots of changes since I last updated. I had to put Gurdurr and Simisear on the hold for now, Simisear's at the daycare and Gurdurr's with Juniper. However, I have added 2 new members to my group. Litwick and Cubchoo!

In the time we've been together, Cubchoo's evolved into Beartic and took down Drayden, and Litwick's become a Lampent. So now I'm looking at a full team. We finally brave our way through Victory road...and lose against the first member of the Elite 4.

I've got some training to do.

I really should've posted here from the start D:
Oh well, better late than never.

So after exploring the water I noticed on Route 1 when I started my journey all that time ago by surfing out on the back Fin (my Carracosta), we discovered some strong currents that led us to a small island out west. I met a nice Treasure Hunter there who offered me a Pokémon Egg! Unfortunately, I didn't have enough space to carry the little guy (or girl!) back.

So after flying back to Accumula town on Pteryx (my female Archeops that I raised from a Pokémon Egg I received in a trade) to make some room for that egg and fetch Alexandr the Mienfoo (named after Alexandr Orlov the Meerkat) who I had just caught just outside the Dragonspiral Tower recently and knew strength to move some large boulders that I had seen around that island.

After returning again with my new Pokémon egg resting snugly in my backpack I took back Zephyr (my Ga;vantula) and Verde (my Serperior) from the PC I headed East from Nimbasa to explore and found a strange woman in a caravan. After being tipped off by a friend who lived in Johto, I headed back to take out my Crown Beasts that said friend had sent me. After coming back to the suspicious woman she attacked me! In turne out she was an Entei! Then, after Zephyr took down her health a bit, she transformed, yet again into a Zoroark! I immediately threw a Great Ball and caught her. I don't think liked being disturbed, but she decided to come with me anyway, so I guess she likes me.

After, Braces (my Scraggy) took part in the Sweet Souirée at the Pokémon Musical. He looked so cute dancing with his partner like that, swinging his walking stick like a real pro. I eventually decided I had procrastinated enough and did as Alder had suggested and headed off to Opelucid City to meet with Drayden and Iris.
As I reached the Tubeline Bridge, I was met by Bianca again. She told me she had decided she wanted to be a model like Elesa and also a Professor like Prof Juniper and I defeated her in battle again (I'm really starting to feel sorry for her).

I've just reached Opelucid City Now and just watched Ghetsis on one of his "inspirational" speeches.

Get Ice type, not Dragon type. GO VANILLUXE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, Reshiram is L50 and when you face Ghetsis you'll need to fend off against like a L54 Hydreigon or something, you need more grinding kid.

hey i preordered the game and got it the day it came out, but i have one question; why does it say "atumn (of fall) as a season when it's winter where i live?

thats cause the seasons don't correspond to where you live (seasons change every month). That way, it's easier to catch Pokemon who only appear in a certain season like Beartic only appears in Winter so instead of waiting like a year you only have to wait four months (still a lot, you could beat a game in four months but nonetheless...)

- Caught all the Pokemon (besides Pansage >_>) that was available so far in the game.
- Got the Liberty Ticket.
- Stopped to do an hour of Precalculus. Yay.
- Caught a Victini in a Great Ball (yay for Servine with Glare.) It's Rash which is a decent nature for it. :)

Here is my current team:

Victini Lv.15
Rash
- Confusion
- Incinerate
- Quick Attack
- Endure

Woobat Lv.23 Female Unaware
Serious
- Heart Stamp
- Air Cutter
- Confusion

I am debating on a 5th member of my team. An Ice type would be nice..or maybe I want a Dragon type..or maybe a certain Bug/Steel type..or maybe a ghost type. hmmm

I won't go into too much detail, as I did that in my blog, but pretty much to sum up what I've done, I'm at the Dream Yard, grinding my two Pokemon to lvl 14 so I can advance to the next area. It's taking a while though. x( I have currently defeated the first gym leader, Cilan and am advancing further very slowly. :)

Finally started White yesterday during work. Hurrah for having free time.

I chose the male player character (since he's my absolute favorite of the two) and named him Keegan. Since this was going to be my main playthrough, I chose a male Oshawott named Andrew as my starter finally and set to work getting to Striaton City to get the C-Gear.

Along the way, I caught a few Pokemon. One of them being a Lillipup, which I nicknamed "Ella" and kept in my party. She's quite a good Pokemon actually. Don't know why I didn't keep one before. But with Ella and Andrew fighting together, battles were slightly more difficult without any type advantage, but more fun. Which means that I defeated the first Gym and after the Dreamyard, got my C-Gear. I could finally trade Pokemon from my Black version to further complete my team.

Today, I started off trading around Pokemon for my team. Now I could continue to Nacrene City and face off against that difficult Gym Leader, Lenora. I didn't want to just capture a Throh and sweep the team with a type advantage, so most of my night was spent leveling my Pokemon. It was well worth it, as once again the team of Andrew the Dewott and Ella the Herdier defeated the second gym. Though things did get a little tense as Lenora's Watchog nearly took out Ella with a Hypnosis/Retaliate combination.

And that's all for me today.

Team:
Ender the Servine - level 20
Valentine the Woobat - level 18
Angel the Sandile - level 19
Ella the Herdier - level 20
Andrew the Dewott - level 18
Aquila the shiny Pidove - level 8

Aquila's just there because I keep thinking of training him, but never do.

In Driftveil City I had a lot of fun. First of all I got an upgrade to my pokedex >.< much needed as searching for pokemon was becoming a bit tedious :| I als managed to find a kind lady who offers me Heart Scales for showing her various pokemon moves! :)

I enjoyed my first triple battle with Charles, I just wish there was more in the game, it adds an extra dimension to battling which I like and would like to see more of in the future.

I moved onto the Cold Storage to chase down Team Plasma and managed to catch myself a Vanillite! But more importantly my Blitzle evolved into a Zebstrika in the process :D The evolution was much overdue as poor Blitzle could barely last one or two moves in a battle.

I also managed to find TM55 Scald in the town which I think is now my fave Water Type move, I immediately taught it to Dewott!

Onto the gym, with Dewott in my team I never expected Clay to be much of a challenge, I backed that up with my Audino who knows Grass Knot and once again, a pretty easy battle came out of it.

I moved on through route 6, catching a Tranquill, a Karrablast and a couple of Deerling on the way, and as I approached the cave another battle with N ensued! Once again he was brushed aside by a combination of Whirlipede, Dewott and Zebstrika!

I have a brief chat with Bianca and Professor Juniper and make my way into the cave.

The cave had it's good and bad points. I love electric pokemon, so was happy when I caught a Joltik and over the moon when I caught a Tynamo :) It appears Klink is the new Zubat of this generation :p

My best catch though was Drilbur, I managed to catch three because I wanted one with a good nature. I met some resistance from Team Plasma from the end of the cave which was quickly brushed aside. And is it just me or are encounters with pokemon in caves a hell of a lot more frequent than they were in previous games? It felt like every 3 steps I had a battle :|

Anyway I step out of the cave and into Mistralton City.....

Late that night, I reached the Relic Castle, having flown over from Icirrus and run all the way from Nimbasa. I found the entrance, cloaked by those strange grey-blue statue-Pokémon, and as I was about to enter, Cheren showed up. I felt like yelling at him that this was my thing to do now, but he told me Alder was already inside, and we should hurry to meet him. I ran ahead and ended up being stopped by a strange old man.

He said he was Ryoku, one of the Seven Sages, and Ghetsis was interested in me because I was the one N had chosen. Team Plasma would be waiting in the floors below and I would have to show Ghetsis just what I could do. I wasted no time, defeating the goon on that floor, but there were no stairs. Then it dawned on me.

I had to sink myself through the quicksand.

Oh hell no.

Shaking, I stood in the center of the vortex and let myself slip through. From the feeling of my legs below, it definitely led through to another chamber, so I shut my eyes tight, covered my nose and mouth with my hands and let myself relax into the sand's tight embrace.

There were more floors like this, and I had to sink through the sand to progress each time. I had sand everywhere; in my hair, in my hat, down my top, in my shorts, in my shoes... even in places I didn't want to talk about. o__O

When I reached the end, I found Alder and Ghetsis stood facing each other. Cheren fell through the sand behind me, coughing and blowing the stuff off his glasses. Ghetsis was arguing away Alder's logic but both stopped when they saw me.

Ghetsis recognised me as the one N had chosen to either oppose his power or to lose Pokémon forever. Alder pointed out that losing friendships would be a terrible thing, for those Pokémon who were happy with their trainers would be immeasurably sad when they were separated - which was my point exactly, FYI. Ghetsis went on to tease Alder about the fact that since his partner Pokémon died, he couldn't take things seriously. How... how dare he?! Picking on someone because of their dead Pokémon - how low could he stoop!?

Ghetsis said Alder would fall to N, and Alder said he'd be the judge of that. He would face N and protect the world from his will. Then Ghetsis laughed and left. What an arrogant--

Alder pointed out that the Dark Stone was here, so the Dragon wasn't either. Disheartened, I left the castle, Alder and Cheren behind me. By this point, the sun had begun to rise in the distance, and I felt tears in my eyes for my lost hope. Of all the moment-killing things, Prof. Idiot (the stupid woman one, not the stupid man one) called me up and started raving about something... something to do with the Dragon! She told me to come to Nacrene City, so myself and Alder flew there straight away.

Outside the museum, both Idiots, Moment-Killing Bianca and Stalkerman Alder were waiting for me. They said something about an old stone in the museum... and I remembered what they meant. A stone older than anything else... found in the Desert Resort... wait...

Lenora came out with the stone and handed it to me. I felt it grow warm in my hands straight away. No... it couldn't be! How could Team Plasma have missed this when they raided the museum before? But this was it. It was undeniably the Dark Stone, the final essence of the legendary Dragon Zekrom, and my key to stopping N before he goes too far.

My hands were shaking so much Lenora had to take the stone back for a second to stop me dropping it. I felt my hands turn cold as it left them. She explained that in the town past Icirrus, Opelucid, there was a trainer named Iris who was an expert in Dragons. If I took the stone to her, perhaps she'd be able to help me raise Zekrom. Lenora handed the Dark Stone back to me and once again, I felt warm... almost... complete.

This feeling... was this telling me something? Could it be that I, like N, was destined to be a hero?

Bleh. I ran out of paper so I had to use my arm to take notes on... as such, I couldn't take that many.

So, I have the Dark Stone now. JASBAIDAYH! I'M GONNA BE A HERO!

Next up, travelling to opelicid and maybe some of the stuff that happens after that.

Pretty much, right now I'm at Nimbasa City about to challenge Elesa the Gym leader of the city. I pretty much grinded for like, 2 hours today in Pinwheel Forest with Nickcino and Sydbby, beat Lenora, did Plasma stuff, made it to Castelia City, caught a Darumaka, now known as Moxie Girl, more plasma stuff, battled Burgh who was easy work, went through the desert, caught some more Pokemon for the Pokedex, including Sandile, Siglyph and Maractus, went into Nimbasa city, saw N on the Ferris Wheel, beat N, and that's about it for now. ^_^ I'm about to evolve Sydbby into Sydoredia for Quiver Dance.

Time: 7:22

So, I tried to beat Lenora with my underleveled pokemon, and failed. So we went to travel Pinwheel Forest and train some. I got all my pokemone to level 16-17 and went back for a second try. Beat Lenora with only one pokemon left, my Servine. But Audino was a huge help. I got my second badge, witnessed Team Plasma stealing the Dragon Skull. Met Burgh. Of course I chased after them, beat them all, and got the Dragon Skull back. Met Gorm.

Then I headed to the Skyarrow Bridge, and it was really pretty. Probably my favorite part of the game so far. Stepped into Castelia city, and saved the game. I'm pretty excited about going to explore this city!

Team:
Audino Lvl 18
Servine Lvl 18
Blitzle Lvl 17
Panpour Lvl 16
Woobat Lvl 17
Timburr Lvl 18

I am definitely keeping Servine. Possibly keeping Woobat, Audino and Blitzle on my team. Maybe keeping Timburr. But I don't think I'm keeping Panpour. I might evolve her, and if I still don't like her, she'll be going into the box.

I flew back to Icirrus on Fawke's back and made my way over to the moorland around the edges of the city. They were deep and pretty wet, but Pendant let me sit on his back as he waded through the deeper parts and I managed with the rest. Ahead, the Tubeline Bridge loomed, and as I approached it, I heard a shout from behind and Miss Moodkiller, Bianca, showed up. She spouted some nonsense about finding her purpose but being worried about not being able to make it... I wasn't really listening. Then we battled. I won, obviously, and she accepted it with an air of resignation.

Bianca told me that she believed in me. I had to beat Team Plasma, because she remembered when her Musharna, then a Munna, had been captured by them in Castelia City. If that were to happen, but permanently... it would make her so sad. I agreed with her, for once. She left me with added hope, and I made to cross Tubeline Bridge.

It was freaking long. Seriously. And as I was running, my heart nearly stopped because, for the third time, SUDDENLY NINJAS. They shoved me further up the bridge, to where Ghetsis was waiting for me. He didn't seem to understand why N had picked me to revive Zekrom, but saw that I had the Dark Stone with me, and wondered if N wanted to see which dream the two Dragons, so perfectly balanced, would choose to prevail. I told him outright that my dream and N's were nearly identical; the only difference was that while N wanted to separate Pokémon and humans to find peace, I wanted them to find peace together, in the same world. Ghetsis scoffed at this, admitting that he had raised N to be the Hero, and to be pure of purpose.

So... Ghetsis raised N. Was... was Ghetsis N's father?

Ghetsis then announced that his plan diverted from N's. He wanted the only Pokémon to remain to be the ones belonging to Team Plasma! He wanted the idea of owning Pokémon to be seen as a bad thing, so the world will have to face the peer pressure of the onlookers. Eventually leaders, champions, even regular, caring people like Bianca, would be forced to release their Pokémon.

Then he said something that really stung me. I might have the Dark Stone, but that didn't mean the Dragon would accept me as a Hero.

He left me, along with his Ninjas, alone on the bridge. Hmph. Maybe he was right, but I had courage and passion, and the feeling I had when I held the Stone was so reassuring, I felt he had to be wrong. This was what I truly needed to do. I would free N from Ghetsis' manipulation.

As I left Tubeline Bridge, someone threw a TM at me and snapped me out of my thoughts. What the heck!? Then I spotted a mall.

Huh. Well, I am a girl. SHOPPING TIME!

After a bunch of impulse-purchases, I arrived in Opelucid City, and was greeted by Alder the Stalker. He grabbed me and pulled me over to where a crowd had formed; Ghetsis was already here and causing quite a storm. Ghetsis told everyone about N befriending Reshiram, and how he would create a new world. Everyone should herald the return of the Hero of Unova. He said Pokémon are so different from humans, we have to acknowledge them properly and free them from our oppression. We should release our Pokémon.

I tried to shout something out but Alder hushed me up, since we had snuck into the back of the crowd. Ghetsis couldn't see us to single us out, and he quickly left, but the people of Opelucid in a state of confusion. I talked to a couple of people and they seemed both attracted and repelled to the idea of releasing their friends since, according to Ghetsis, their capture had caused them such suffering.

Alder called me over again, this time accompanied by an old man and a younger girl. I recognised the girl as Iris, who had helped us in Castelia. Alder introduced the older man as Drayden. These were the people to ask about the Dragons. They'd both heard about N bonding with Reshiram and Alder explained that I had been selected by N to raise Zekrom to oppose him. Then Alder left, explaining that he'd have to go hold N off at the Pokémon League. I wished him luck as he left.

Iris escorted me to Drayden's house, where the pair reminded me once more of the legend of the Dragon commanded by two brothers, who split into two and slumbered from then on. Drayden stressed further that the Dragons would be perfectly matched, and in the end, it would be up to the Dragons alone who's dream would come true in the end. Feeling a little more confident, I thanked them and asked about the gym, and Iris explained she would be the one to battle me.

So there it was. The last badge I would have to earn before traversing the League and taking on N.

I approached the gym.

From Icirrus to Opelucid, with everything plot-related in between. Blahblahblah.

Key Moments:
Pretty much none. Just reaffirming what I already knew.

I just have to beat Iris... she's gonna be tough. D:
My best hope is my Duosis, who's Hidden Power is Ice-type. >.>
I'll probably power through with Tardy and use the others to hold off while I heal him.

I just managed to catch Cobalion, it took about 20-30 ultra balls and I had to keep reviving my pokemon every few turns so that I could throw some ultra balls at it

I'm not going to post my team's levels as there isn't any change from what they were when I defeated Cheren.

March 10th, 2011, 02:08 PM
As it was, I felt I was ready to face Iris. How wrong could I have been? Most of my team found their attacks next to useless against the Dragon-type trainers in her gym, and we unanimously agreed that Tardy, my beloved Duosion, would be the ideal, since his Hidden Power was Ice-type.

Since Tardy was holding the Quick Claw that had previously been held by Marik (Marik decided he was fast enough that he had no need for it, and put on the BlackGlasses instead - and has never looked so badass) he managed to get the first hit a lot of the time, cutting away most of the opposition's health easily. However, it was a good thing I had stocked up on Revives beforehand, as many of them had powerful Dark-type moves that crushed Tardigrade's Psychic-type.

By the time we reached Iris, we felt we were ready. Tardy went out first and held his own, only being knocked out once and with Marik covering for him as he healed. Iris didn't stand a chance, and I was jumping for joy when, finally, the last fully-evolved member of my team began to glow startling white and emerged as the squishiest, most adorable Pokémon I have ever seen; Reuniclus. First things first, SQUISHY HUG with his squishably squashy arms. Then, Iris presented me with the Legend Badge, my eighth and final badge!

Professor Idiot♀ was waiting for me outside and announced that she was clueless. Great. Good job, Prof. Turns out she had tried to find out how to revive Zekrom and proven unsuccessful. Seriously, where would Unova be without its intellects leading the way?
/sarcasm

The good lady Idiot pointed me towards route 10, which I'm sure I could have found myself, and then gave me something that very nearly made up for her idiocy.

Very nearly.

It was a freaking Master Ball. What the Mew.

Then she just left, as though she gave out Master Balls every day of the week.

Looks like I'm off to the Pokémon League next. One step closer to my final match with dear N. But... it was getting kind of late, and I'd done a lot today. I checked into the Opelucid Pokémon Center and went to bed.

So, that's 8/8 badges and Iris was stupidly easy for the last gym leader of a region. Heck, I expected a real challenge from a Dragon master but some of the trainers in her gym put up more of a fight than she did.

Key Moments:
Beating the everloving poop out of Iris
Earning the Legend Badge
Tardy evolved! REUNICLUS IS ADORABLE.
I got a Master Ball from an idiot. Huh.

Next up, the Pokémon League!

Currently, I'm trying to train my team in the Desert Resort before beating Elesa. As of late, I've doubled my party's size; since I could finally find Emolga and Gothita, I caught one of each. However, Emolga are a total pain to find on Route 5; I ran into countless Audino and even two or three Cinccino before finally finding one.

So here's my team as it stands:

http://pokemon.marriland.com/images/bw/sprites/front/norm/531_audino_front_norm.pngBobby (Level 28 - Sassy male)
http://pokemon.marriland.com/images/bw/sprites/front/norm/556_maractus_front_norm.pngAdam (Level 26 - Modest male)
http://pokemon.marriland.com/images/bw/sprites/front/norm/587_emolga_front_norm.pngEddie (Level 26 - Hasty male)
http://pokemon.marriland.com/images/bw/sprites/front/norm/574_gothita_front_norm.pngGarrett (Level 22 - Modest male)

Wow, not just is my whole party male, but only one can evolve (and that would be Garrett). Well, that'll be fixed soon... :P

Yep, I planned it that way. In fact, I had a quite difficult time finding a Modest Gothita and I almost gave up. I'm pretty OCD about getting beneficial natures (and even abilities!) in-game, even during the storyline.

And back on topic, I did level up my crew a bit here and there, but I'm still in the Desert Resort.

Wow, my Pokémon aren't as strong as I thought they were.

I barely managed to scrape by in the Opelucid Gym, and after some leveling up I decided to head off to the Pokémon League. As I was going along Route 10, however, Cheren and Bianca showed up. Cheren challenged me to a battle with his 4 Pokémon: Unfezant, Liepard, Simipour, and Serperior. Those 4, I can take them, right?

Wrong.

His lowest level was 43. My highest was 42. We got owned. After several tries, I managed to defeat him after some leveling up on my part (2 or 3 levels only, though..) with my Excadrill (who knows Rock Slide for Unfezant), Zebstrika (Discharge for Simipour), Unfezant (Air Slash for Serperior), and random others for Liepard.

My team still isn't strong enough for the Victory Road, so I'm grinding... again... on Route 10 with the Lucky Egg. I want to get each up to at least level 45 before I continue on.

Over and out..

"Man, those Plasma guys just don't know when to quit." Natsu stated as he had just saved the Day Care Owner from getting Pokemugged by the infamous Team Plasma, that had been terrorizing people left and right stealing their Pokemon. Natsu had just entered Nimbasa City as the Day Care Owner thanked him and carried about his business leaving the city. Before taking a few steps into Nimbasa a voice was heard from behind him.

"NATSU! HEY!!" the feminine echo was heard. Natsu had turned around to see it was Bianca, who had just entered Nimbasa the same time he did with a giant smile and her usual eccentricity.

"Hey Bibi. What a coincidence, us two getting into town at the same time." Natsu waved to his second childhood friend. Natsu explained to Bianca how he and Cheren had just bumped into the Professor and she gave them Ultra Balls for a cool gift. Bianca replied with how she had just strolled by and saw Professor Juniper headed in the opposite direction and that she had gotten an Ultra Ball as well.

"So, Natsu, what are you going to do first since your in Nimbasa City?" Bianca asked Natsu. Cupping his chin and looking up into the evening sky, Natsu shrugged and sighed. "Maybe I'll just challenge the gym leader, aren't you going to do the same?".

Bianca shook her head and laughed. "You do know that they have Pokemon Musicals here in Nimbasa right?" She mentioned to Natsu. The boy blankly looked at her as she mentioned the thought of Pokemon and Musicals together.

"Pokemon Musicals? Hmmm....not my thing." Natsu scratched the back of his hat in response to the event.

"Oh well. I was hoping that I could catch it with either you or Cheren. Since Cheren's behind near the construction site and such, I thought maybe we could go check it out." Bianca told Natsu. The evening breeze sent chills down Natsu's spine. The chattering of his teeth were heard as the duo walked around the town and eventually stopped in the middle of the Pokemon Center. Bianca sighed as she entered the Center.

"I'm gonna buy a few things Natsu, be right back. Wait here" Biance excused herself. Natsu leaned on the wall of the Pokemon Center building. In his sight he saw a giant building that was labeled 'Battle Institute'.

"Let's see here...Battle Institute...or Pokemon Musical?" Natsu dabbled to himself. The male then took at two Pokeballs. Out of their Pokeballs were Tekken and Mint. They smiled at Natsu as they took in the wonderful surroundings of the city. Natsu kneeled down infront of his buddies.

"Okay guys, I need your help. So tell me, which one should I go to...The Battle Institute? Or the Pokemon Musical?" Natsu asked the two. Naturally, Mint pointed to the left where the Pokemon Musical was at. Tekken on the other hand, wavered to the right, the direction of the Battle Institute. Tekken and Mint then argued with each other on the matter. Tekken shouted at Mint. Mint responded with a slap to the Scrafty's head. Tekken then cracked his knuckles as Mint turned to the opposite direction. Natsu chuckled as his Pokemon had disagreed on tonight's activity. Of course Natsu should have know that when it came to lifestyle and personality, Scrafty's and Petilil's don't mix.

Natsu then returned the two to their respective Pokeballs. At that moment, Bianca walked out of the Pokemon Center.

"Okay! I've got everything I need. So where are you headed to Natsu?" Bianca inquired.

So far I have 5 badges, and recently added Cubchoo to my collection. Took me 2 hours to find him twice. First time.....well........lets just say that a critical hit ended it in one shot.

I have about 23 hours logged, and my team consists of:

Emboar lvl 45
Krokorok lvl 45
Ferrothorn lvl 45
Galvantula lvl 45
Swoobat lvl 45
Seismitoad lvl 45

I tend to train each Pokemon by 5 after each Gym, but given the level of some gyms, other accomodations were made.

Emboar seems to have fit in far better than I had hoped, while Seismitoad leaves much to be desired. I am going to swap Seismitoad out for a Carracosta to see if that works any better.

I originally ran Unfezant instead of Swoobat, but the movepool was far too limited for my needs, and Swoobat seemed to cover what I missed. However, since the gyms are all type-based gyms, I find that just 2 Pokemon on my team are more than enough to make it through the gym with no difficulty.

Zerrah.

Wednesday night I stayed up until 1:30 in the morning in order to beat the game. Mind you I had to wake up at 5:30 so I could make it to my classes that morning. But I do not regret it!!

I've transferred just about everything over to Black from SoulSilver. I'm currently in the process of purchasing all of the Power items so I can begin EV training! I'm so excited! And I only have the Power Weight left, since I spent the majority of yesterday going through the Battle Subway. The only unfortunate thing is that with the lack of decent hold items, I'm progressing slightly slower than desired. Oh, how much faster it would have been completed if I had just one Focus Sash. But alas, I'm stuck with a Helmet. Oh well, I just have to get to work on getting the good hold items in time for Colossalcon~!

After a couple days of training my team and running around the south-east side of Unova, ive come to you all with another update. :D

Notable Events:

-After running around Route Three, I ran into my first Aiduno. :D It felt good to finally murder one of those pink creatures ive heard so much about. >:)
-Caught a Tympole.
-Running around in the area right before Pinwheel Forest, I almost died in a wild double battle. D:
-It was then that I realized I had a major weakness to fighting type moves. :/
-During the battle with N before the gym battle, my Snivy evolved. :D
-Obtained second badge. :)
-Traveled all the way back to Nuvema Town to search for hidden items using the Dowsing Machine.
-Caught a Venipede in Pinwheel Forest.
- Purrloin Evolved. :D
-WTF. There are cars? :O
-Whhyyyyy is this bridge soooo loooonnnggggggg.

Current Team:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f2/Ani496MS.png | lv 20 | Overgrow
Growth | Leech Seed | Tackle | Leaf Tornado
For some reason he wasn’t hitting as hard as I liked, but since his evolution, hes doing just fine. Hes holding the Miracle Seed I obtained from some girl in Nacrene City.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/02/Ani504MS.png | lv 19 | Run Away
Leer | Hypnosis | Crunch | Tackle
I know Tackle gets STAB, but I cant tell whether it or Crunch does more. He evolves super soon. Too bad he has a sucky ability.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/53/Ani510MS.png | lv 20 | Limber
Assist | Sand-Attack | Fury Swipes | Thief
As a Purrloin, I was really thinking about dropping her from my team. Even with STAB Thief, she barely did any damage. But recently, shes had lots of luck with Assist, getting moves such as Crunch, Round, and Roost. I havnt tested her out as a Liepard yet, but her stats look really good compared to my other team members.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/aa/Ani519MS.png | lv 19 | Super Luck
Roost | Work Up | Quick Attack | Air Cutter
Air Cutter plus Super Luck equals win. And if for some reason he does get low on HP, Roost takes care of the job.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/64/Ani535MS.png | lv 19 | Swift Swim
Supersonic | Bubblebeam | Mud Shot | Round
This guy is my main Special Attacker. Plus, he isnt weak to Fighting, which like half my team is. Too bad he has a not-so-good ability.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/49/Ani543MS.png | lv 19 | Swarm
Protect | Screech | Poison Tail | Pursuit
The newest member of my team. I havnt tried out Poison Tail yet, but im hoping its much better than the weak Poison Sting he was using before. I don’t use Protect, and rarely do I use Pursuit. Contemplating whether I should exchange it for Rock Smash.

Update number three. While traveling through the Desert and battling trainers, i came to realize that many of my Pokemon have horrendous natures. Oh well. lol. Im gonna write about the team i had when i beat Elesa (<3), not the team im currently leveling up. Route Five, here i come. :D

Notable Events:

-Skyarrow Bridge is so annoying. i had to run across that thing so many times. i dont even know why. >:/
-AWW. Nurse Joy wished me a happy birthday. <3
-I went through all of that just for a dumb berry!? :O stupid clown. >.>
-Pidove evolved. :D
-Venipede evolved. :DD
-Burghs sprite is a little too flamboyant. lol.
-Obtained third badge. :)
-Caught a Dwebble. <3
-That hiker in the Desert Resort with the Tranquill was hard. >:/
-Tympole finally evolved.
-After much frustration, caught a Sigilyph. :DD (I wasted so many balls on that thing. :x It doesnt even have a good nature.)
-Caught a Yamask.
-Caught a Gothita. Not sure if i really want to train it. lol.
-Captured a Trubbish. :DDD <33333
-LOL @ random hermit lady in the forest.
-During Ns battle, his Sigilyph knocked out half of my team. :O
-In the Nimbasa gym, the Emolgas use Double Team hax. :/
-ELESA IS BEAUTIFUL. No wonder shes a model. <33
-Got the fourth badge. ;)

Current Team:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/44/Ani551MS.png | lv 25 | Moxie
Assurance | Bite | Sand Tomb | Mud-Slap
Mud-Slap is sort of a helpful attack, while Assurance and Sand Tomb could be better. Seening Moxie everytime after she kills an enemy gets annoying after a while.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/50/Ani557MS.png | lv 26 | Sturdy
Sand-Attack | Bug Bite | Faint Attack | Smack Down
Smack Down has such a cool animation. lol. I love this guy. Hes so cute. I searched forever for him in the outer part of the Desert Resort.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f2/Ani496MS.png | lv 25 | Overgrow
Growth | Leech Seed | Tackle | Leaf Tornado
Leech Seed and Big Root were definately made for eachother. lol.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/6/6a/Ani536MS.png | lv 25 | Swift Swim
Aqua Ring | Supersonic | BubbleBeam | Mud Shot
Hes one of my strongest. Not much else to say.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/83/Ani505MS.png | lv 24 | Illuminate
Confuse Ray | Hypnosis | Crunch | Super Fang
Lots of people give him a bad rep, but hes much better than youd think. ;) Illuminate is such an annoying ability. I cant be bothered to have him lead anymore. lol.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/2/29/Ani568MS.png | lv 21 | Stench
Toxic Spikes | DoubleSlap | Acid Spray | Sludge
I havnt used much of this guy. I had him holding the Exp. Share in the Nimbasa gym. Hes so cute. DGAF WHAT YOU SAY. HES ADORABLE.

I woke up the next morning ready to take on anything. However, as I stepped into the segway to route ten, the clerk stopped me and started raving about a huge thunderstorm on route seven. Intrigued, I released Fawke and he flew me over, and indeed the thunderstorm was intense. I was getting soaked through, when an old lady invited me into her house, where she let me get dry and offered me some delicious soup.

Old Lady Soup explained that the storms of Unova were often caused by a Pokémon called Thundurus, who flew around the entire region. She also said that Thundurus would probably be too strong to battle, so I should stay out of the long grass.

As I left the house, however, I saw a giant shape plummet down from the sky and land before me. It was the very same Pokémon, Thundurus! He seemed to increase the rainfall, and then disappeared. I tried searching for him, but I couldn't find him again, and anyway, I had to make my way to the League.

As I began my trek to the league, who should show up but Cheren? Him and Bianca had come to make sure I knew what I might be facing when I went to challenge N, and Cheren immediately began to battle. His Pokémon were really strong and it was a struggle, but I beat him in the end. I thanked him because he had shown me how much stronger we would have to get to even have a chance, and Bianca gave me a handful of Max Revives to help me on my way. Both of them wanted me to succeed, because they had grown so much because of Pokémon - and so had I - and if N separated us from our friends, it will all have been for nothing.

With hope in my heart, I continued onwards to Victory Road.

Meh. Not much to say. I'm training up for the league, since the elite 4 are nearly level 50 and my team's only just reached level 40.

Also, WTF is Thundurus supposed to be? It's so ugly. I don't even want it. D:

Update

Although I met Cilan the Gym Leader of Striaton City outside of the gym, I found myself facing his, more of a hot head brother Chili and his Pansear. I fought it easily enough with both Smuggy sorting out his Lillipup with a combination of both Growth and Vine Whip and Paddle, she completely took out Chili's Pansear with two Water Gun attacks. With Chili admitting defeat I recieved the Trio Badge and a brand new TM "Work Up" which I taught to Paddle before leaving the gym to find a rather strange 'Professor Like' woman. Her name was Fennel and she wanted to give me another move this time an HM01! "Cut".
Having taught Scratch Cut I collected the two items back on Route. 2 then went on to the Dreamyard, meeting up with Bianca on the way we saw two members of Team Plasma surrounding a little pink Pokemon. That Pokemon turned out to be a Munna and they wanted Munna's dream mist even as fas as them to go and kick the poor Pokemon, but then Ghetsis of Team Plasma appeared, and again then once more which obviously freaked them out because the bolted there and then. Ghetsis turned out to be a dream made into reality by a hidden Musharna to help the Munna, just then Fennel shown up to take an item off the ground which I thought was for me and ran off.. Before heading back to Striaton City to confront Fennel, I caught myself a Munna and I named him Sync. It turned out Fennel was grateful for me defeating Team Plasma and she gave me the C-Gear! her younger sister gave me the Pal Pad.

Now leaving Striaton City for the next city over, Nacrene City I decided to leave my Pupps (Lillipup), Scout (Patrat), Scratch (Purrloin) and Sync with Professor Juniper, I'm sure she will look after them for me. Now on Route. 3 I was stopped by Cheren who wanted yet again another battle so I accepted even though I didn't have a choice and again beat both Tepig and Purrloin with Smuggy and Paddle. After his defeat Bianca came running saying Team Plasma had stolen the little girl's Pokemon whom she was with so Cheren bolted after them and I followed catching Bolts, a female Blitzle on the way to Wellspring Cave, where Cheren and I engaged in our first two on two Pokemon battle with Paddle taking them out. Whilst in Wellspring Cave I caught both Taboow (Woobat) and Roxy (Roggenrola). Back on Route.3 after leaving the cave I was thanked by both Bianca and the little girl and recieved some Heal Balls for my trouble, after heading south towards Nacrene City I found a female Pidove just asking to be caught so I looked through my bag and just launched my Great Ball at her, I gave her the nick name "Pigwidgeon".

Entering Nacrene City for the first time Cheren takes me to the Pokemon Center, even though I didn't want to heal up just yet, I ran around collecting all the hidden items within the City and ran into that N character from Accumula Town. N wanted another battle even though I had not healed up at the Poke Center my Smuggy was able to defeat him now having learned Leaf Tornado. I decided to go inside the museum seeing as it was free and I met Hawes the museum assistant who after a quick tour around shared that he was infact Lenora the Nacrene City Gym Leader's wife... Just after i ran back to heal my team and do some training back on Route.3 for my second gym badge.

Update

Instead of going back to Route. 3 to train my Pokemon, I went the Pinwheel Forest Outer Area and trained both my Smuggy and Paddle, Smuggy finally evolved into a Servine.. Awesome!
I caught myself a Tympole "Splash", then a Timburr "Stick". I am not planning on using either of these girls in my team though. Once I started to realise I wasn't gaining much experience from the wild encounters I visited Nacrene Pokemon Gym and defeated the trainers within it, realising I still wasn't strong enough to take on Lenora I went back to Pinwheel forest for some really boring training, capturing a wild Throh whom I gave the nick name "Judo" simply because he is the Judo Pokemon.

After healing up at the Poke Center I got lazy and decided to connect with my Japanese Pokemon White and transfer over my team.. :/ So I spent like an hour running around Nacrene City hatching all four eggs so the Pokemon could join my team, their nick names are just random because I didn't have time to think of them seeing as I would have caught them later within the game. Now I'm just going to train all four new members of my team up to the same level as both Smuggy and Paddle to even them off before finally taking on and hopefully defeating the Nacrene City Gym Leader Lenora.

- My team so far -
Smuggy the Servine Lv.20 (♂)
Paddle the Panpour Lv.20 (♀)
Aero the Rufflet Lv.1 (♂)
Reckless the Axew Lv.1 (♂)

Okay, so I recently beat Elesa. Strangely, the hardest part of battling her was her Emolga. Anyhow, I'm currently in Clay's gym after dumping my Audino, Bobby, in the PC. I figured that Garrett fills his role pretty well (or at least will when fully evolved).

Now I just can't wait to catch some more cool Pokes! I really want to catch Mienfoo and Vullaby, but I don't want to trade to get them, as this is my first playthrough. :D

I had some time to play today, and I did nothing of any real importance. Mostly what I did was run around with the Dowsing Machine, looking for any items. Along the way, I trained Aquila (who will possibly be renamed "Pavarotti"). And also mostly looked for TM94, because no guide I looked at had very clear directions how to get it. But I got it!

What important things I did do was defeat Team Plasma in Castelia City. And...that's it. Tomorrow I'll battle at the Gym. From all the grinding I did today, I hope I can win.

And yes, I am taking my time with this game. Have five hours of playtime, and this is all I've done.

Team:
Angel the Sandile - level 23
Valentine the Woobat - level 23 - Amulet Coin
Aquila the Pidove - level 15 - EXP. Share
Ender the Servine - level 23
Pansear the Cut user - level 10
Andrew the Dewott - level 23

I just started my adventure with an awesome Oshawott. It is Docile and its name is Aqua. I am getting ready to catch my first Pokemon.
I caught a Lilipup and a Patrat and a Purrloin. I battled N and kicked his but. I did some training on route 2 before I went to Striaton City. I got my Pansear, he is Adamant and he is really strong. I named him Pyro. I battled Cheren again and beat him. I then went to the Striaton Gym and met Cilan,Chili and Cress and I battled Cilan. I beat him using my Pansear against his Pansage. Later I will do some more training on my way to the next town.

So I finally did some training with the new members of my team which took a few hours of boredom, but it was all worth it as I went on to challenge Lenora.
I sent out my Paddle who used Scald followed by a Bite attack knocking out her Herdier, I then switched to Reckless who used Dual Chop and scored a Critical hit on Lenora's Watchog. Now the Basic Badge was mine I could finally move onwards within the game, Lenora gave me the TM "Retaliate" just as Hawes, her husband came running in shouting about thieves in the museum. I followed to find Team Plasma stealing a Dragon Skull, to me what looked like a Dragonite but whatever..

After leaving the museum I met Burgh of Castelia City, then shortly after Bianca and Cheren arrived. Lenora being the leader she is split us into three groups to get the Dragon Skull back. I teamed up with Burgh on this one running into Pinwheel Forest I fought some Team Plasma grunts giving my team some experience for the next gym.
Before getting the Dragon Skull back and Lenora thanking me with a Moon Stone which I used to evolve my Sync (Munna), I caught myself a wild Petilil whom I nick named Lily.
Leaving Pinwheel Forest for Castelia City I had to walk, in my case run over Skyarrow Bridge which was awesome to see. Upon arriving in Castelia City I got myself a Water Stone which I used on Paddle, now she is a newly evolved Simipour. After her evolution is explored Castelia's docks and found the boat to take me to the Libery Garden where I can encounter Victini, which I will be doing once I've beaten Burgh.
I explored around Castelia City defeating the three dancers who each have one of the elemental monkey Pokemon then decided to take on the battle company earning myself an Exp. Share (that many trainers in a city rather than a route/cave is awesome). I am heading towards Burgh the Castelia City Gym Leader for my third badge, the Insect Badge.
