Yancy/Curtis event

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.

    Did anyone else find this part of the game annoying? I hated how you had to go to each exact square like twice.

      It's so annoying! I didn't know what to do so I'm pretty sure I did about 100 calls x:

        Twice?

        You had to visit ten out of fifteen squares once each, then you got to return the device. The thing that's annoying is that it's then only active in any one area at a time (when you can call your - ahem - lover), forcing you to run all over the map over and over (and, occasionally, swearing at a breeder).

        The event did get a bit annoying given you had to call them 50 times to access the trades but if you're patient and remember the locations it's well worth it.

        Not to mention all of the good Pokemon you can get out of the trades have their Hidden Abilities and some are even exclusive to players of a certain gender.

          I want to marry Curtis. ;n;
          He's so cute and silly and he likes to fish which makes me think of home (Louisiana) and he has green ish hair and he's cute and stuff and rich and can buy me nice things. <3

          But I find it fun, actually! It's like a little mini adventure to find and meet a friend you made by accident, who happens to be a big Unova celebrity! Plus the Pokemon are all cute that you get from them. <3

          Sure, I found it to be a bit of a tedious task as well, but some of the Pokemon that you can get through trading with Yancy/Curtis is well worth it (and each of the Pokemon are holding a food item from another region that can be sold for a couple thousands dollars to the lady just outside of Nimbasa).

            I found it annoying and very Repetive to open up the Yancy/Curtis Trades but actually wroth the process because the pokemon you can get from them are awesome.

            As a matter of fact, it's one of my favorite features, and even though I never shipped anyone ever in Pokemon, I really, really like the romance bit. I mean, he even starts blushing at some point, how cute is that? For the first ten calls before you return his phone, I googled the exact spots, and then I just went all over Unova just to be able to call him. I don't know, it was more fun than grinding if you ask me.

              I guess it is something that is worth wasting time on in the after game. And I do agree that you can get some pretty good mons from them.

              I found it annoying since I still haven't met him! But when he does call it's like "daym what's happening-oh!" I hope I will find him one day on my journey~~

                Seriously? There are guides as to the spots you can go to, all 15 shown in pictures in some of them.

                I thought it was a horribly designed sidequest which had no challenge to it whatsoever and just made you walk around to random places with no variety.
