    If I am trying to fill up my pokedex (all 649) is B2/W2 necessary?
    Yes, since Kyurem is unique to those games.


    Is there a way to catch a Thundurus that is NOT Impish nature? Every time I soft reset the game, I always get an Impish Thundurus. This nature sucks because it lowers special attack in exchange for defense (or special defense, IDK).

    Impish nature boosts Defense, and lowers Sp. Attack fyi.

    I believe the nature is set as soon as Thundurus is released, so that means I guess you need to save before you encounter it the first time (aka when it's an overworld sprite) so that you can still soft-reset for nature, IVs etc. Remember, a roamer's nature is set as soon as it is released and will stay that way, so to soft-reset you need to save before encountering it for the first time.

      Bleh, I wish the game told us that before we encounter it.

      Anyway to knock it out, and re-encounter it with different nature/IV scores?

      Yeah, just knock it out if you're not happy with it, beat the Elite Four and then return back to where you originally found it. Make sure you save before encountering it!

      Correction: you don't need ALL 649 Pokemon to complete the National Dex. The event Pokemon Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Deoxys, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, Victini, Keldeo, Meloetta and Genesect are excluded.

          HMs aren't mandatory in this Victory Road. You can pass it without HMs. You only need them if you want to push the boulders to create shortcuts.

              Three unrelated questions about Black 2:

              1. How do I navigate through the boulder puzzle in the Seaside Cave? I've moved 2-3 rocks already, but can't find a clear path to reach the others (see attached screenshot).
              2. Where on Route 21 am I supposed to meet members of Team Plasma? The two grunts blocking my way in the Giant Chasm mention that they expect other Team Plasma members to come from that direction.
              3. Is there an appropriate sub-forum here for requesting Action Replay codes? I'm not sure whether the code I need exists, but I don't want to break the rules of this thread either.

              1. I have a video that will show you the directions: Click here

              2. Again, here's another video you can follow the directions of: Click here

              3. From what I know, Action Replay/Gameshark codes can't be shared on the forums.

                Hey, I have Pokemon White. I caught Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion but the thing is..
                Virizion isn't in my storage. I didn't release it, I didn't put in a daycare.

                My pokedex says I caught it and it should definitely be in my storage. I planned on using it but it's not there anymore. Is this a glitch? I hate it. I want my Virizion!!! And I love my team. I'm after the part where I defeated N and Team Plasma. I don't want to restart.

                  Did you carefully look through the PC boxes? All of them? It's probably somewhere in your game. If it's not, you've accidentally released it. I've never heard of a Pokémon removing glitch other then the Bad Egg. But that's kinda impossible to get in B/W.

                    Yes. I looked through all of them. I went to the daycares to check there. I did this 3 times.
                    I remember catching it. I remember placing it next to my other legends. I don't remember releasing at all.

                    Have you traded it to friends or any other Gen V games you own?

                    Have you looked in your party and Battle Box? Maybe you lent the game to a friend who took it? Maybe a sibling/child played the game and accidentally sent it away. One thing I would do is move a Pokemon into a box click them and try scrolling through stat screens. Your Virizion could be hidden with green wallpaper.

                      No. The starter you get at the very start is the only one you'll be having unless you trade.

                      On another note, in X/Y, you do get another starter traded to you post-game.

                        Consider the following:

                        A Pokemon is caught in an Apricorn Ball (such as the Level Ball, etc.) or the Sport Ball (used in Johto's National Park) in Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver and is traded to Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, causing its summary screen Poke Ball to appear as a regular Poke Ball (since pre-HG/SS Nintendo DS games don't have Apricorn Ball data or Sport Ball data). Said Pokemon is then migrated to a Generation 5 game.

                        Which Poke Ball is shown on the summary screen of the Generation 5 game - the regular red-and-white Poke Ball or the Apricorn Ball that the Pokemon was originally caught in?

                        Thanks in advance for answering this question! (The "B2W2" response to this question would be great as well, if known!)

                        I know this may be weird, but a Pokemon caught in an Apricorn-based Poke Ball that is transferred to 5th Gen will still display the sprite of the Apricorn Poke Ball it was caught in. I remember transferring a Nidoran♂ via Poke Transfer that was caught in a Friend Ball in my SoulSilver and it retained the sprite of the ball on its summary screen.

                          It depends on the month. See the rest on Serebii. (sorry I can't post links, I've been here not long enough)

                          My pokedex says I caught it and it should definitely be in my storage. I planned on using it but it's not there anymore. Is this a glitch? I hate it. I want my Virizion!!! And I love my team. I'm after the part where I defeated N and Team Plasma. I don't want to restart.
                          I hate it when this happens. Try looking in your Battle Box, I accidentally leave some of my Pokémon in there as well.

                            is it true that the Pokémon Dream World has been shut down for B/W/B2/W2?

                            Well, the majority of the 5th Gen Dream World has been closed down as of now, but the ability to change C-Gear/Pokedex skins and Pokemon Musical songs (excluding trades and battles) will be removed around January 14th, 2014. The main reason behind the closure was due to the release of X and Y, and hence the Global Link has updated to the current generation.

                              You can still play in the Dream World until 10th December but you can't register any new games.

                              Where can I find a Mareep, Phanpy, or Ampharos with its hidden ability?
