Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

Hello everyone, I have a question that has been bothering me for a while. I'm a huge fan of Pokemon games, and I have played and beaten every single handheld game that has come out. My problem is I lost my Pokemon black and I had my Pokedex nearly filled. Thankfully I transferred most of the hard to obtain/old gen Pokemon to Black 2 upon it's release.

Now I started playing black 2 recently and I notice that I have many pokemon left to catch (easy ones, but over 300 [evolutions included]) My question is: Should I try and complete the black 2 Pokedex? or just wait for X and Y and transfer them there like I have been doing since gen 3.

P.S Should I complete it by having 1 of each Pokemon (for example: one Bulbasur, Ivysaur, and Venusaur , instead of Venusaur counting for each Pokemon) Literally one of every possible Pokemon.

All insight appreciated,

Armando.

In my opinion, I wouldn't try to collect every Pokemon available just yet, unless you have some free time to kill. Wait until there's confirmation that you can transfer your Gen 5 (Black, White, Black 2, and White 2) to Gen 6 (X & Y).

I wouldnt understand why they wouldnt. Especially for those competitive players such as myself. Who get the games not only to play but to stay current, which they will eventually require gen 6 games for next year.

Yeah I feel like I should wait too, but I have a feeling that they are definitely going to allow transfer, I mean it's almost common sense seeing previous gens.

You should complete it the Pokedex (SPOILER ALERT!)[*]
  • Spoiler:
  • Seeing all Unova Pokemon, excluding event exclusives (Meloetta, Genesect, Keldeo and Victini), you'll obtain a Permit to Nature Preserve, which houses a Shiny Haxorus.
  • Catching all aforementioned will gain you an Oval Charm which increases breeding success rate.
  • Catching all non-event exclusive National Dex Pokemon will gain you a Shiny Charm(?) increasing your chance to find shinies!

I'm trying to do what you're doing with my White 2 - obtain one of every single Pokemon. I'd say I'm about 3/4 there, so I'm going to go for them all! It gives me something to do while waiting for X and Y, and I'll feel like I really 'completed' my White 2 if I do that.

Plus it's rather fun, I did that with Pearl Version and found some really cool foreign Pokemon on the GTS.

Well as of right now, the issue has to do with the DS and the 3DS system not being able to talk to each other.

Despite that issue, GF might decide to change the IV system, or the data structure of the pokemon files in game. It wouldn't be backwards compatible then either. I'm personally hoping for this.

Personally, I think competitive players would be getting hampered by backwards compatibility, and illegitimate flawless pokemon being brought forward again. A true honest fair player would enjoy breeding and training to get their new pokemon competitive again.

Currently looking for:
-Competitive shiny and HA pokemon
-Assault Vest
-Ability Capsule
-Tyranitarite

I say wait until it's confirmed. Of course, trying to complete the PokeDex is rather fun if you got nothing to do. Plus you get stuff by completing the PokeDex.

To be honest, do whatever you feel you want to!

I would also be one to wait and see if you can transfer Pokémon since it can make catching them much more easier, but if you're really bored and have nothing to do in Black/Black 2, then go on ahead and complete the Pokédex for those games!

Happy Halloween!
