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 Black 2 & White 2.

      I think to be on the safe side, don't make random people shop owners. You can eventually get Gym Leaders which is who I'll pick for shops and the such.

        I dunno. If you recommend shops to Gym Leaders, you wind up getting a huge number of reputation points out of it. I'm not sure, but is there an advantage to having them as shop owners instead? I make random NPCs in-game owners, and will tend to have others I meet in Wifi (and Gym Leaders) be the shoppers. So far have met one person on Wifi; not sure if that is a shop owner offhand.

          I'm not sure if there is an additional benefit to having the gym leaders as shop owners. I just figured with 8 different shops, 8 different shop spots to build, 8 different gym leaders the game developers want you to use them. Plus the extra popularity of course.

            I've had 2 Gym Leaders appear in my Avenue and neither had the option to make them into Shop Owners so I don't think its possible to do anything other than Recommend them to shops and get 1000 points.

              That makes sense since they can't stay to mind their shops AND manage their Gyms.

                    My Pokemon Black 2 have not been in my possession for long but I really bought it because of Join Avenue.
                    Dream World visitors are the usual people in my Avenue.
                    I get around 7 people a day at maximum.
                    I haven't traded with people in GTS so yeah xD

                      I'm up to four visitors now. Starting to get bonuses of a shop owner recommending THEIR favourite shops and sending their visitors in that direction.

                        My title is Amarillo, and my Avenue (Black Pass) is at Rank 14.

                        ...But what's the difference of having online trainers as shop owners? (Maybe 'cuz I don't really communicate often)

                        If you have online trainers as shop owners, you'll get to see the latest activities of that shop owner (like when he/she becomes the champion, what Pokemon he/she just caught) every time you online (like trading or some sort, going to Dream World is counted). You could talk to one of the assistant (I think the one with black glasses) in office to check them. And some of the visitors will ask the shop which have personality which might be suited for them (the shop owners), which any shop owners (in their own game) choose their own personality by talking to NPC which not buying things and some in Join Avenue's office (you could personalize yourself this way). And online linking means more visitors too.

                          ブレンダン is smiling at you!

                          NEway, now multiple shop owners are recommending others; I sent someone to my first one "Janus Fitness" and he sent the customer to the second, who sent the customer to the third, who tried to send the customer to another except I got the "Next time" to end it.

                          Four daily visitors right now, and I have an assistant who can heal Pokémon. Seems pointless since I can Fly, but ah...

                            I think the whole recommendation thing is started when your Join Avenue is in Rank 15.

                            Negative on Rank 15; I got it with both my Join Avenue and a shop at Rank 2. Avenue is now a 4, and my streak cut off at three with a "next time".

                            Oh... I wonder if it has to do with number of shops? My shop happens to be 8 of them when my Avenue is in Rank 15.

                              Something weird happened to my Join Avenue today.
                              I recommended one of the people from DW who wants to go shopping to a Mart owned by a Nurse.
                              Then it started. Every shop got recommended by every other shop owner, in the end, all of my shops leveled up. xD

                              Mart > Fitness > Lottery > Antiques > another Mart > Florist > Cafe > Barber.

                              All of them got around 100-275 pts. It was cool. So cool xD

                                  @Arlo~ Humble beginnings. Visits in the Dream World count as visitors. I have the game for 3 weeks now and my Avenue is Level 9.

                                  Btw, your team is cool. I am using a Crobat and a Flaafy (which evolved just recently) on my team too :DD

                                    I love my Crobat and my Flaaffy. I got Crobat as a Zubat, intending him to only be for one gym, but he was so good in that gym, I had to keep him on my team. Now he's my main pokemon!

                                    Forgot to go to Join Avenue yesterday, trying to coil-trade too >_<

                                      My suggestion is to have one of every possible shop. No copies. That way you have more then a 90% shot of increasing popularity. Also if you can connect to people on the dream world thats a great way to get like 10+ people to visit you

I just figured with 8 different shops, 8 different shop spots to build, 8 different gym leaders the game developers want you to use them. Plus the extra popularity of course.

                                      Gym Leaders cant be used as shop owners. Ive looked

                                      I just reached rank 11 on my join avenue last night.
                                      I'm trying to get to rank 15 as fast as I can to get the nursery.

                                        I've taken a little bit of a break from everything as I've now reached Opelucid City. I want to get the trading with Yancy unlocked, and then I can start collecting that material for the shop I hope to eventually open (for players who want them in the original B/W basically). I also figure it's time to make Keldeo take on its alternate form and start leveling it while working in Route 11 (which is slightly weaker than I'm used to). I have a lot of Pokémon to still find and Winter is almost over in-game!

                                        I've got my second Join Avenue Shop Owners' FULL RECOMMENDATION SWEEP! (ends with Nursery with 206 popularity points) That's a nice treat as my New Year Gift, and it just a matter of 255 popularity left on my Nursery shop, I'll get a new promo week (my shops are mostly at Lv. 10 now)! Oh yeah, my Join Avenue is currently in Rank 43.
