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.

Is there any benefit to buying a new pokemon game (from Emerald-Black/White), or are used games just as good? The main reason I ask is that more and more games have online content that is only unlocked to the first person that registers online/etc, and I wanted to make sure that wasn't the case here.

There's nothing like that with B/W. Feel free to buy used.

    I suppose not, but I always buy my games new, or download them(shame on me). I've never bought an used one, because you have a great chance the user has hacked it with some creepypasta-like content. So I think the best is to buy! ;D

      If they hack it, and have a corrupted save file, won't everything be erased and reset when you create a new game?

        You can't, unfortunately. Unless it's an HM iirc.

        Take it out before it learns the move, exp it yourself and make it forget that another move :D
        Anyways Day Care replaces the top most move so you can manipulate it like that...

          There was a Japanese event from Nov. 2010 to Aug. 2011 that let you get DW Hoenn starters. So yeah, but that's the only way.

                Defeatist (ability) - Why does Archen have this ability? It drastically weakens him.

                What makes Archen a good choice despite this ability or is it just a very weak pokemon? i.e. does he get stronger stats, or better abilities?

                Archen and Archeops have excellent (Special) Attack and Speed stats, as well as a pretty good offensive move pool. They were most likely given that ability because GameFreak didn't want them to rip everything in sight to shreds. Also, Defeatist is the sole ability of Archen and Archeops.

                  why would i choose Klutz for a pokemon?

                  whats the benefit of stopping the effects of items on my pokemon

                  -----

                  Question 2:

                  Is there a place where people post their IDs? so we can all trade with each other? I wouldn't mind adding a community of people rather then my 3 friends i know in real life with this game.

                    The move Entrainment, which the Buneary line learns along with having Klutz as one of their potential abilities, gives the enemy the user's ability; that is, the foe could be given Klutz and be unable to use their own item.

                    Also, say you wanted to pass an enemy a negatively-affecting item (ex. sticky barb) without it activating on yourself.
                    This can also work defensively, say if the enemy used Trick or one of various thieving moves; I don't think anything with Klutz can learn Trick itself though.

                    Those are the only positive uses for Klutz I can think of. Note that abilities are not meant to be solely positive, for instance Klutz on a Golett is just pointless.

                        Lol, no.

                        That only works with 3DS version games.

                        There's a quick trade thread in the Trade Corner, and you can also just browse the trade threads there and post offers for any Pokemon.

                          Hi guys I've just joined and I am currently playing Pokemon Black Edition.

                          I am breeding Sneasel and was wondering if and how it's possible for a sneasel to get the ability pickpocket?

                          I know about dreamworld breeding and pickpocket having a 60% chance of appearing on the new pokemon if the mother has the dreamworld ability, and that the pokemon will be its mother. Also the fact that if the father has a dreamworld ability and the mother doesnt, it doesnt work at all (same goes for trying to ditto it) and you can breed sneasel with any in it's egg group.

                          However, the only pokemon that can learn pickpocket (seedot and sneasel) can't be caught in the dreamworld so i don't know what to do. Is it only achievable by hacking?

                          Any suggestions?
                          Thanks guys!

                          I know about dreamworld breeding and pickpocket having a 60% chance of appearing on the new pokemon if the mother has the dreamworld ability, and that the pokemon will be its mother. Also the fact that if the father has a dreamworld ability and the mother doesnt, it doesnt work at all (same goes for trying to ditto it) and you can breed sneasel with any in it's egg group.

                          However, the only pokemon that can learn pickpocket (seedot and sneasel) can't be caught in the dreamworld so i don't know what to do. Is it only achievable by hacking?

                          Any suggestions?
                          Thanks guys!

                          Welcome to PC! Good job on putting your question in the right place by the way :)

                          Unfortunately, if Sneasel can't be caught in the Dream World and there haven't been any events for it (which I'm pretty sure there hasn't been), then there's no way to get PickPocket. It can only be bred from a female Sneasel as well. But they release new Pokemon pretty often on the Dream World soo just keep an eye out.

                          Are all men stupid?

                          That's right.

                              It can learn Ice Punch and Pursuit via breeding, though Ice Punch requires some chain breeding.

                              Smeargle can be caught on route 5 in a swarm. I suggest catching a Jynx in the Giant Chasm cave, using a Heart Scale, to get Ice Punch. And then go catch a Venipede in Pinwheel Forest, that will know Pursuit. Then by wild double battles, Sketch both the moves to a male Smeargle and then get a female Sneasel (caught at the same place as Jynx) and breed them.

                                Ok, I have a possibly complex question. I have a Kuruyamu ("Swadloon" or something in America, I think) who's Special Attack stat (92) is lower than his Attack stat (137). I noticed the only two attacking moves it knows are Special Attack moves (Bug Noise (sorry if I didn't get the American name right) and Energy Ball). So, I am looking at my options for Attack moves instead in hopes of gaining more power. I'm considering Razor Leaf, but its base power is only 55, compared to Energy Ball's 80. Still, I thought maybe the stat difference would make up the damage. The question is, how much? Given its stats, along with the move base powers, what's best to go with here?

                                EDIT: Ok, so I looked up the moves of its final stage, Hahakomori. Looks like it'd be good to replace my current moves with Leaf Blade and X Scissor. Still, it wouldn't hurt to know how to understand a situation like this for the future if it should arise with a different Pokemon.

                                  Prepare for a newb question, and I'm sorry if this is the wrong section...

                                  I currently have white version, and two DS's. I've been thinking about getting heartgold/silver version, but I want to play through with a team from my white version (chimchar, piplup, bulbasaur, scizor, bagon, meditite). Is there anyway I can do this?

                                  Thanks ahead of time for helping this dummy out lol!

                                    Uh...No you can't.
