2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

Are you Black or White? I Am!

Posted March 17th, 2011 at 09:40 PM by Mario The World Champion

Okay, it's been a while since I made a blog, but now I have a good reason, as do everybody else here @ PC: Pokemon Black and White.

The Generation V game have arrived on our shores. I pre-ordered White with a few days before the game's release and I got it on March 8th. And I've been playing it non-stop. The creators wanted that nostalgic feel of playing Red and Blue for the first time. I'll give them that. When I first got Red and Blue, I spent my entire summer vacation playing it. This was when I was still in High School. However, a lot of things early on really got me peeved.

The new EXP system: You get more points for beating a higher level Pokemon than yours. But you gain less and less EXP when you beat Pokemon that are at a lower level than yours. I can understand getting more EXP for beating higher level Pokemon, but those Pokemon will kick the ass of my Pokemon without any effort!

Stronger wild Pokemon at the beginning: People have said that Ash has been struggling in Unova. I can see why. It seems to me that Unova Pokemon are stronger than usual. Must be something in their water or they have been eating their Wheaties. At the start of the game, I kept on having much of my Pokemon team faint due to wild Pokemon more than the past games. Also, my team early on seemed to be wimps because many of them got hit with one attack that is a critical hit and they faint! My Blitzle is the king of wimps on my team. >< I lost count on how many times that thing fainted after one hit.

Luck: When I was facing against other wild Pokemon, they seem to land critical hits easier and more often. Also when a Pokemon uses attacks that hit 2-5 times, many of them always hit 5 times and one of them is a critical hit in some cases. When my Pokemon attack, I rarely get a critical hit and when I use attacks that hit 2-5 times, they end after 2-3 hits. Then, I'm in recovery mode trying to revive my Pokemon, only to have them faint again.

Long time levelling: The new EXP system says it helps with training Pokemon easily. When I was first playing it, I cursed the creators for doing that. This was before I got the Lucky Egg and EXP. Share. Without those and gaining less EXP with my higher level Pokemon, the early stages of the game were torture. I barely scrapped by my first two Gym battles, getting beat horribly by Lenora's Watchog.

Those are my negative points when I first began my Unova Journey. On my next Blog, things get better. Much better.

    I agree with this. ESPECIALLY the multiple hit attacks. They always hit me 5 times, 5 TIMES!

    I also agree with wimpy Pokemons being wiped out with one hit. My Solosis was like that too. :(

    I always thought this as well, or at least for the amount of times you hit compared to them. It's ridiculous! Then I realised my Darumaka had Hustle. :/

    It seems like Pokemon who are not evolved are really weak even if you trained them a lot. I have to believe that wild Pokemon in Unova are taking steroids.

    Blitzle was totally a weakling 'till I got him to about level 17.
    And Lenora was horrible. D:

    The game is fun, but the main point I'm having issues with is not being able to overlevel my Pokemon without terrible monotony. xD; /impatient

    I have to overlevel my Pokemon. And I do agree with the terrible monotony of fighting the same Pokemon for very little EXP. You lose your sanity overtime.
