I didn't have a chance to get bored with it. By the time I got there the damn forest was entirely empty, and has remained that way since...well... forever. I was really looking forward to catching some of the stuff there too lol.

White Forest was fascinating at first, but it wasn't as fun as I thought it would be, so probably a month. It was actually one of the reasons why I got White instead of Black, so major disappointment right there.

The good thing about it is that the Pokemon differ every season.

I started the game in January, but then started it again in August. Unfortunately, I didn't know how Black City worked, so I continued my nearly new save. When I got there, there were 3 trainers, and no market.

Damn frustrating.

Also, whenever I was completing the pokedex, and looked on the wiki to see where I could find it, nearly always it came up with 'White Forest'. Why couldn't they have a place to get pokemon in Black City? Damn...

White Forest still doesn't bore me, since I didn't complete White Hollow Tree yet ...
I'm currently on Floor 9 (SO close...) but since it's kind of a "Mystery Dungeon", and it's big as hell, I didn't succeed in finding the key trainer yet >.>
frustrating as that is...

I never really enjoyed the areas much, they seemed fairly tedious and in the long run simply not worth the effort. I paid three or four visits before avoiding the area entirely.

Eh. I've had enough of it by now, but it was kinda fun to steal the citizens away from my little brother's Black City.

I pretty much never spent time in that place. I took quite a while to get through the game, so by the time I got there, the place was completely deserted, and I didn't have a particularly good way to repopulate it (nor did it seem worth the effort to do so; I didn't have time to play that often anyway to keep the resident NPCs there happy).

I didn't really care for either of the places. Just went there and got the pokemon I needed from White City and left. Never been back there since. :p So I'd say it took a week or 2 of getting bored of it. xD

I took more than a month to beat White, which was relatively quick compared to how much I spend my sweet time in other pokemon games. As a result, my White forest was completely empty. It took me months to find a friend in my neighborhood who had Black who could help me replenish my forest. It was tedious to replenish, and even then, I couldn't get the actual pokemon I wanted (Porygon) because he didn't have the person for it. Furthermore, I already had all the pokemon in White Forest technically already-available through Poketransfer. I think Black and White 1 did a pretty poor job of these features, despite the idea of a White Forest being one of the biggest things I looked forward to. Black and White 2 did a much better of using these facilities to have good replay value.

I scarcely visited these areas so I suppose it didn't take long for me to really stay interested? I'd pop in whenever I remembered to and had things to do there but that wasn't very often.

Having just finished the main story arc a few days ago, I just arrived at Black City and battled a few of the trainers. Thing is, I don't really get it. Like are there more trainers there each time you visit or something?

I didn't get a lot in my Black City given the fact it took me 13 days to beat the main story on my Black, and as a result, I'm now bored of it because it's completely empty.

I'll be honest, I played around in White Forest for maybe an hour before just moving on to the next game.

You know a mechanic sucks when you ask people "how long did it take you to get bored of it"...

For me it didn't take very long. Like 2 days. I still play Black's battle subway though. weeee

The Whole concept of Black City / White Forrest was flawed and designed for conditions only found in Japan - i.e. everyone in the country playing locally to exchange data.

If they did the same thing with Friends and Acquaintances from PSS XY, the whole thing would make more sense.

But between the Friend Safari granting extra Pokemon and the Battle Chateau offering Level Up Trainer battles, the need has been filled by better ideas.

Because I took my sweet time in White 1, I did not get to experience any of what White Forest had to offer. It was practically just a Pokemon Center. I definitely prefer White 2, which at least has the White Treehollow, something I can actually use to train.

I got bored of White forest on my White version in literally, 30 seconds. I've never got to Black City however, so I can't say much about that. I'm about two kills from reaching there though. White forest was a major disappointment.

Too seconds.

Literally.

It was barren, completely empty and as soon as I left the city, the people were gone, so I had no use of ever returning unless I needed a place to throw up. xD
