Yeah, so far I am really enjoying my time with Black 2. I just beat the big person and started my own strip mall, apparently. Things have changed since middle school...

Nope! Don't know anyone who plays personally anymore, and every time I try negotiations they seem to break down fairly quick. Is there some way I could convey to the other person that I am looking for Gen I Pokemon? I tried tapping it out in morse code with the ! sign, but I don't think they liked it.

Haha, yeah, I think that would confuse me as well. Anyway, I forgot to mention the Dream World in my previous post, there you can find many Pokemon that aren't in the game. You'll need WiFi to sync your save file though, but it's really easy and fun

You can try being clever with phrases. You edit those through your trainer card. Most people don't pick up on what you want exactly still.

Hi guys, I just got pokemon black and black 2 a few weeks ago, however there are pokemon you can only catch during events (or an Action Replay code) like Victini. but I heard Nintendo cracked down on their firmware, blocking the A.R. codes. is this true?

Unfortunately, it is. All Event Pokemon are released on certain games and in certain parts of the world. In addition they have an expiry date too. At the moment there are no event Pokemon for us to get sadly.

is there any way to get Rare Candies besides finding some on the floor? Like the ones we get at the Pokeathlon and the Battle City in HG/SS.

You sometimes get Rare Candies from Pokémon with the Pickup ability. They can also be bought at the Pokémon World Tournament and the Battle Subway for 48 BP.

Also, in B2/W2 they can be obtained through Join Avenue's Raffle Shops. It's entirely luck-based though. And they can also be a possible Area 6-10 reward in White Treehollow and Black Tower.

Aw... I don't have B2W2 :-(
So that means getting Rare Candies in BW is harder?

Yeah. Getting Rare Candies in B2W2 is to any of the Pokémon games relatively easy.

I didn't see this as a don't ask in the first post, so I hope I'm not breaking any rules? I have two systems, DSi and a 3DS, with Pokemon Black. How can I connect to online to trade, battle etc etc? It says I need to configure my connection settings, but they are configured. I have gotten a whole lot of mixed answered concerning this issue from Nintendo and other players. I have been told all the systems and all the games can only use WEP security to connect, but I also was told that isn't the case if you play Pokemon Black on a newer system like 3DS. I would really like to connect and play since I haven't been able to since I got my systems/games. Any help? Thanks!

So I have fairly poor Internet, and I have been online to battle only 4 to 5 times, but every time, except once my Internet screws up and disconnects, and my opponent will get the display to me 'rage quitting' even when they are in one Pokémon, this happened again today and its bugging me because I'm not aloud another battle for an hour, the only other time my game didn't disconnect was when I was winning and the other player disconnected...

What can I do? Will I be permanently disqualified if my Internet keeps this up? The only consequence I have suffered is an hour without a battle...

Thanks!

The 3DS has two internet settings that you have to enable. First is the 3DS's prinmary internet and the second is the DS function internet that allows DS games to go online. All I can say is do exactly what your manual says to do since I cannot physically see what you are doing. Either way if you do it correctly you will have internet access. I'm sure someone can post all the needed steps for you, but these are all, as I said, in the manual.

Only thing you can do is find a stable internet source to battle. Unless you plan to go out and buy a new internet router or join with a new company there is nothing you can do other than maybe going to a McDonalds or Starbucks where internet is free.

Ok to clear things up: Pokémon Black and White, and their sequels Black 2 and White 2, are DSi enhanced games. They benefit from certain DSi enhancements (better performance) and can access the internet using WPA encryption, unlike the non-enhanced games.

The 3DS plays all DSi-enhanced games as if they were being played on a DSi. Therefore, you can use WPA connection with BW or BW2 and a 3DS. In the case of the DSi and 3DS, you must configure the internet settings in the Config menu in either console. If there's an active wireless signal point, the console will detect it and allow you to link to it. After the connection is established, you should be able to connect to Nintendo WFC in-game and battle/trade online.

Okay so, here's the thing. I want an Aerodactyl with Stealth Rock in Gen V. Since he can't learn it by leveling up and the TM76 was replaced with another one (As far as I know) in this generation, can I actually like, teach him Stealth Rock in Gen IV and then transfer it to Gen V with Stealth Rock learned?

Of course. The only moves you can't teach him before transferring are HM moves.

He also learns it from the Move Tutors in B2/W2, so you can trade it to someone with one of those games and then trade it back. The only downside is that it'll cost that person 10 Green Shards.

Hope this is the right spot for this question, but here goes: Why does bulba say that the events coming up will be available at EB games in the Netherlands if there is no EB games store there?

These Pokémon will be distributed at GameStop stores in the United States, EB Games stores in Australia and Canada, participating stores in Belgium, the Netherlands and Portugal, JB Hi-Fi stores in New Zeland, and GAME stores in the United Kingdom.
I think you just read it wrong, EB Games is for Australia and Canada.

Well i also took a attempt to read it, and i honestly have to agree with tabor... It clearly says participating stores in Belgium, the Netherlands and Portugal, so it can be any store in these countries.

That's just a list of what countries you can get it in. The main description is above the Pokemon underneath the event name. That's the description that tells you what stores you can get it in.
