I have Black, restarted my first saved file in July, and I'd say around late August/early September I was bored of Black City. It was nice having additional trainers to battle when my pokemon were still relatively low-leveled compared to many others in post-league play, but now it's just eh.

The only reason I'm still giving Black City any mind is because when I first got Black at release I didn't have anyone in my city due to taking my jolly 'ole time getting there. So what about the rest of you?

In White 1, I became bored with in a few visits. There was really no reason to catch the baby pokemon/ pre evo pokemon because I was just transferring them from HG which I had already had most at the time. I didn't even like Black City in my Black 1, so I didn't go there much, mainly because you could find enough stones throughout the game and didn't have to buy any.

As bad as it sounds not very long. ;A;
In White, White Forest just got smaller and smaller every time I visited, and eventually became empty of all grass. In White 2, there is only the Tree Hollow, and that didn't take too long for me to just get impatient with. I wish they made like, something else to do in each. Maybe like little cafes, or something other than just trees and grass to make me wanna explore more.

It took me all of 40 seconds to get sick of the place and leave, never to return again. It's a pretty lame place, to be honest.
I like Sandshrews. A lot. I am Sandshrews number 1 fan. And don't you deny it.

As soon as I set foot in it.

Black city and White forest I think was a good concept that was executed very poorly. Every time you go there, unless you link up somehow there's same thing every single time, with the added agony of having to visit there constantly otherwise the place gets emptied. It's just inane how Game freak made a good concept into such a boring space filler.

I never really spent any time there - it never caught my interest.
Plus I had black and black 2 - I'm more of a natur type rather than a city type. I thought white forest at least looked pretty.. unlike black city. 3: <

Hate to say that I got bored with it after 2, maybe 3 visits to the White Forest. I remember reading about all the Pokemon you could eventually find there before I first played, and ended up being disappointed at all the work that you had to do to get them to show up, and the fact it was only a post-game area.

I have Black 2 and so far I find it okay. I always go there every time my funds go lower than $1 million, plus the money is nice when trying to EV train your Pokemon.

I think of them as a chore.I just went through them for the evolutionary items.
I also think that the treehollow is a little better due to the plants.
It did help me improve my stealth skills.(Avoid every trainer till the gate one)

I didn't come back anymore after finishing it. Well, maybe I did come back once for level grinding, but there's nothing that much in it for me to repeat :\

As soon as I got into White Forest I talked to all the trainers, got bored, and left. I do plan on coming back when I'm at the level so I can beat Benga because I want that shiny! : P

As of today I'm not bored of White Treehollow and Black Tower, battling trainers there are one of the ways to make money and to level up Pokémon. Not to mentioned about the BGM in White Treehollow and Black Tower are awesome! One can also visit stalls in White Forest or the Shop in Black City to buy evolutionary items!

I hated Black City but thought White Forest was quite interesting, in B/W1 at least. I find both to be very boring now our days though.

Planned X/Y team so far: Fennekin evo, Charizard, Blaziken, ???, ???, ???

I thought Black City would always be cool, never liked White Forest though so idk how that would've worked out. Tree Hollow was meh, but you know free Pokemon at the end. It was more tedious than anything.

I took too long to get to White Forest in the first place in White, so it was already a barren wasteland when I arrived. I thought the concept was neat, but I wish it didn't empty itself over time. I haven't really bothered to go there in BW2, so I don't have a strong opinion on the area in those games.

I've gotten bored of White Forest pretty quickly. There were some grasses there, but they were all occupied with Pokémon that I had already caught. I knew that you were able to use the Entralink feature to increase the amount of Pokémon that can be found in your forest, but I have never bothered using it because I found it to be a bit of a hassle. xD I love what they've done with the White Forest in White 2, though! They've placed something known as a Treehollow, where you can battle various trainers to earn rewards. That's pretty cool! As for Black City... I've never been there, so unfortunately, I have nothing to say about it. D:

I have never tried Black city or white forest believe it or not. I wanted to, but I find myself doing other things, like EV training, Join Avenue, Dream World, Pokestar Studios, Legendary hunting, Making money, Battles in Nimbasa city, PWT; damn there is a lot to do in these games.

What is Black city and White forest like? What is there to do?

I'll have to say that I didn't quite like Black Forest from the start, just a bunch of random trainers in a shady city and some guy who gives us cash. So I didn't dwell over there for too long. Haven't been to White Forest yet, though.

It didn't take long. I've recently been playing White version again and all that's there is wild lvl 5 nidoran(f), koff~

What a joke. I would have rather had Black city where at least I could buy the stones instead of hunt for all of them. My goal in this one is to raise all the pokemon I could as my own, and the restrictions of the stone market made this aspect quite difficult, koffi~

I got bored of Black City pretty quickly, because it took me about two months to finish the game and by that time the only worthwhile thing in Black City was the Pokemon Center! There's a few buildings at the back, but I can't enter them. >.>
