It is actually a zorua. If you bring the event Celebi over from the 4th gen games through the special transfer thingy only for events (I think the relocator?) Celebi will pop out and play with the Zorua, who stops the illusion and you can see it is actually a zorua. The trainer then gives it to you.
After these events, you can take a look at the Celebi and you'll find a reference to having met its friend in Castelia City, thereby preventing anyone else from using it in their own game to do the same thing (or one person using it in two games).

Unfortunately you cannot catch everything. You're lucky you picked White though, as you'll get access to White Forest, which if you finish the game fast enough then you'll be able to access all the Pokemon there (each trainer is associated with finding a Pokemon in White Forest, within the forest). While you can trade for some things in-game through various trainers (such as trading for Cottonee early on in the game in Nacrene City) other things you can trade for aren't included in the Unova Dex. Another way you can find Unova Dex Pokemon is through evolving everything you find in each area, or alternatively asking for what you cannot get in the Quick Trade Thread. That p much includes version exclusives, really. You'll also need another game in order to get Landorus on your game, so keep that in mind or you can just trade for that too. As for completing the whole Pokedex, that'll really involve the same thing, and also going by swarms, too. As well as that, there's also trading back from older games (which involves having previous games such as Ruby/Sapphire, and so on.

Nevertheless, throwing this into Quick Questions in case others have stuff to add - and just in case you have more to ask. :) Use that in the future!

As Forever pointed out, if you need a Pokemon you can't get you can ask for it in the Quick Trade Thread in TC, which she linked you to. Don't use the GTS though since most people ask for illegal offers like "Level 9 and under Zekrom" and stuff.

You will need a second DS if you want to use Poke Transfer with 4th Gen games. Otherwise, there's other Pokemon you can find in swarms or White Forest (given you're playing White).

So yesterday I played my Pokemon White game, and the calendar was set to January 1 2013, and in the game it said that it was spring. Is this normal or there is something wrong? o.o

That's the way it's supposed to be.

Each season in the game corresponds with a calendar month. January is Spring. February will be Summer, March will be Autumn, April will be Winter, then May will be Spring again. And so on...

It wasn't just used in B2W2. All tournaments use it. So if you went to VGC you'd have used the battle competition menu to battle in it.

That's because you've missed every single official wifi and live tournament that was set up for BW. There is NO MORE for BW. All future official tournaments, wifi and live, will be on BW2. That feature was built in for those tournaments and will remain there for the rest of eternity.

Negative. The reason is because the seasons are different in different areas; in Australia, it's summer when it's winter in North America, for instance (right now). The other is because certain things happen in-game, meaning if you got to Dragonspiral Tower's area, you cannot access that dark grass (legally) for possibly up to nine months, or collect some items. This way, each season still gets three months, but it's like a three year cycle in the game.

Finally, to end the year (Dec. 31 that is), you get sparkly snow in Icirrus City.

Cyclone is right, the seasons in B/W don't follow real-life seasons.

Spring is in January, May and September.
Summer is in February, June and October.
Autumn is in March, July and November.
And Winter is in April, August and December.

Each season has a four-month cycle as shown above, and some areas can only be accessed in certain seasons. It also affects the time such as the daytime lasts longer in summer but shorter in winter while in autumn and spring it follows the same clock as in the 4th Gen.

I forgot to mention that. It also affects the Royal Unova, which is available normally from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. (based on the DS clock), but this time gets shortened in the Winter cycle to 7 p.m. (still starting at 5), while the entire range shifts in the summer from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Note also that the ending time I mention is the first minute you cannot board, meaning you can embark up to 6:59, 7:59, 8:59 based on the season.

Oh alright, I guess it does makes sense, having to wait until winter ends to catch a Pokemon seems to long and tedious x)

I thought something was wrong with my DS or my game. Saying it's spring in January, haha.

Dragonspiral Tower is blocked until you get the Freeze Badge.

Do Natures affect breeding? I've run into this several times where two Pokemon should be very compatible but, while they make an egg, it takes a while. I'm in this situation right now; I'm breeding a male Minomucchi (Burmy) with a female Kemusso (Wurmple). They're in the same egg group, yet the elderly man at the breeding house says they don't like each other a lot, and it takes a while for me to get an egg. All I can imagine is maybe their natures are incompatible.

EDIT: Their natures are Timid and Careful, respectively.

No, it's the OT and ID Number that affects the likelihood of Pokemon making an egg.

An example is same species with the same OT/ID being more likely to produce an egg, while different species with the same OT/ID less likely to produce an egg.

Also, a Pokemon's egg groups affects the compatibility. More details on egg groups can be found here.

ok so it has been more than 24 hours, i have not messed with the clock or date on my DS at all, and ive only been using this one DS system. The only thing that has changed from last time i used dream world is the Wifi im on. Does changing wifi RESET the 24 wait AGAIN?? if so, that is completely ridiculous, They need to add some sort of clock to tell me how many hours/minutes i have remaining! Its a pain in the ass not knowing if I somehow screwed up the 24 hour timer or not!!

I'm not sure if changing Wifi matters, but just wait for two midnights to pass, and everything should be normal.

So I'm currently training an Archeops for my main team in White, but reading upon everything (stats, ability effects and whatnot) I'm questioning if I should even use him. What pokemon should I use otherwise?

I have been using Archeops for quite a while and frankly said, it is worth it. I usually used it as my lead due to its high attack/speed stats and excess to U-turn. You just need to be a little bit careful to any pokemon which has a priority moves such as ice shard and bullet punch. Never ever switch in to those.
