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.

Unless you use an AR or Pokesav, you can't find out yourself unfortunately. You have to start from scratch with a Pokemon (or use EV-reducing berries down to 0) and then count from there.

However, they make and transmit them the same way the events do, so there's really no difference except who is giving them out.

It's a nice idea for players who live in areas without events (since their Wi-Fi is global), but it gets out of hand because you can get infinite of any Pokemon they are currently giving out on one cartridge. But then again, what's stopping you from bringing more than one cart to an actual event?

However, it's generally good form to avoid redistributing / trading the Pokemon. PokeStation was made to help players obtain events they couldn't get normally, not give you bargaining chips for other valued Pokemon. You are intended to keep what you get for yourself--not depreciate the value of everyone else's hard-earned event Pokemon. Plus, the added kind-of controversy about it should be avoided too. So yeah, keep them for yourself, train them, battle with them, breed them, but don't trade them.
The events we distribute are recieved from the official events. We extract the .pkm after recieving the Wonder Card & upload them to our servers. Our Event Database is 100% legit events only, we don't upload any which are not legit.

We also host the official .pgf (.pcd & .pgt for DP/Pt/HG/SS) files for the Wonder Cards.

I do hope this clears up the discusion of whether our events are legit or not.

Early on you can get Pidove @ Route 3, but from what I've heard it doesn't carry through that well in-game. Woobat can be okay @ first cave you'll see, but considering most of Plasma has dark types, probably not useful for you. Sigilyph @ Desert Resort, same sort of issue as Woobat really but Magic Guard can be really useful. :x Archen is apparently useful and found in Route 4 @ the Desert Resort in that tower there, so somewhat early on. Next flying type you'll find is Ducklett which can be useful for the gym leader around there (Driftveil) but otherwise doesn't really prove an advantage overall. Finally you have Rufflet's line and Vullaby's line, both pretty good imo and found in Route 10, so really late in the game. And then there's the flying genies which are found around Unova after the 8th gym so you're probably not going to go with them. Either way, merging to Quick Questions for more thoughts which is where this belongs next time.

I ended up using my Pidove (which eventually became Unfezant) through the entire game from the start. Worked fine for me. As for Archen, I got Tirtouga instead :D

Because each one has different letters. It's like a serial number. The only bit that matters is 'USA' meaning it's from the United States. Like 'JPN' is Japan and 'EUR' is Europe.

Oh that's easy - go to the middle bookshelf and talk to the girl (it has awkward wording indeed), she's your last challenge. :)

Yes, but it kinda makes no sense, I have 2 games from Japan, both have the TWL at the beginning, so does my US black version?

TWL means for the DSi and above (aka region-locked), while NTR means for the original Nintendo DS (aka not-region locked).

In other words you can play the one you brought online on any version of the DS (either Japanese etc).

lol didn't see this before :x

Region-locking only applies if you're playing a DSi or above, so yes although B/W are primarily made for that system (aka why they have TWL) they can play in a normal DS no matter whether they're Japanese or English.

Not entirely sure why your other version would have NTR though. :x Actually, all versions are meant to be TWL so it seems you have a fake..

In other words as long as you continue playing your normal DS none of this matters - however if you go up to DSi you won't be able to play the Japanese versions on it.

Sorry again Forever, so the NTR that I bought online is or will be a fake??
I haven't gotten it yet, so...
I bought it and then read the letters on it an thought it was a fake right off, didn't think to look before I bought!!

The NTR on the back of the card is the product ID for the game case. The TWL Nica is talking about is on the front of the game card near the bottom. I don't think there are fakes of these games yet.

Hi, I've been playing pokemon since silver and have thousands of hours of work on my pearl file. I want to migrate everything to white but I'm starting to worry, what if something happens to my game at some point and it stops working, I would lose years of work. So I started googling how to back up a pokemon white (or pearl) file onto your PC. Several sites said I needed a "flash cart" and some toolkits that you can download, but the whole thing seems extremely complicated.

Is there a way to back up my pokemon game onto my computer, and restore it again if anything happened to my game? I have the retail version of pearl and am going to buy white this weekend. I don't want ROMs (actually I don't really know what ROMs are to be honest), I'm talking only about the retail cartridges (not emulators), I don't want to cheat in ANY way or edit my game, I just want to back it up. Please help, I am good with computers but know very little about the DS. I didn't know what a flash cart was until I googled it today. I don't want to spend more than $50 on accessories for this. I do already have a Micro SD card. Is there a safe, easy, reliable way to just back up my stuff and potentially restore it later?

Thanks alot, I did a search on the forum but didn't find a thread looking for the same thing.

I was wondering if it was against the rules to ask about RNG'ing, if not, would anyone know where I could find a guide that actually works? I would love to try RNG'ing for myself.

Not against the rules to ask, the Black/White FAQ has a great guide on RNGing.

There is a way to do it, but I'm not completely sure how, but do know you need an R4, a micro sd and a t-flash for it, I've had it done before years ago, but forgot the whole process!!

is it possible to do it with just this "NDS backup adaptor plus" I've seen online? so I wouldn't have to get a flash cart and download special software and use FTP programs and all that?
