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.

    In every one of my playthroughs I would use it against the gym leader, then box it right away! Sorry, monkeys! I don't really like any of their designs that much, so I never felt compelled to bring any of them along.

      I chose Tepig so I ended up with Pansage. I ended up replacing Pansage with Gothita by the time it got to level 23, really, I had no use for it afterwards.

        I didn't care for the monkeys, or the first gym for that matter. The gym forces you to get a monkey unless you trained up your starter to levels that are way higher than par or used one of the 3 catchable pokemon up to that point, and even then Patrat is mediocre and Purrloin is worse. Lillipup is the only decent catch, but it requires some dedication, and I don't want to use Lillipup all the time. As for the monkeys, Pansear had Incinerate at that point and Panpour had Water Gun, and because the monkeys were more physical, those moves weren't too great on them. Pansage had Vine Whip, which made it half decent, but there were better Pokemon options. This concept was ok the first play-through, but any other play-through, it was more annoying due to limited choices and being more, albeit veiled, tutorial in a game that already had way too much tutorial .

          I don't think I even used them on the gym leader. I just didn't care for them.

            I think that the concept of these monkeys were pretty cool, but I never got around to begin showing any interest in them. I didn't use them on my team or on the first gym for some reason.

                Pansear, although once it evolved it really didn't make much sense having it as it doesn't really learn any other moves and such after that.

                Springtime, the sun is back and the breeze to accompany it..

                When I first played White, I chose Snivy, so I ended up with Panpour. I actually used it even after the Striaton gym battle, and I even evolved it into a Simipour. It wasn't that great sadly, so I eventually replaced it, especially since I ended up using two better Water-types, Carracosta and Seismitoad.

                Now, my boyfriend is having his first run through White, chose Tepig, so he got Pansage. I am so surprised at how well he's doing, he's now a Simisage and he practically destroyed Clay's gym all by himself, with just Seed Bomb.

                Ew, the monkeys. Sorry, but I do not like these guys at all. I didn't even bother to use them against the first Gym. Yeah, their designs aren't exactly appealing to me. That and I can only assume that they would be deadweights to my team even after they evolved.

                  Surprisingly, I used my Simisage 'til the end of my White playthrough. ... Then I realized how terrible the elemental monkeys are. xD
