Dare I say that I was overleveled by the time I reached the Pokemon League? Who knew the Lucky Egg was so helpful?

I'd partly chalk that one up to the improved level curve as well.  Now beat the whole thing on Challenge Mode, RJF. ;)


I don't have a copy of the game yet, but that's because there's a chance some family or friend might try to get me a copy for my birthday later this month.  Just in case, I'd told my parents that anyone who was considering getting me one of the games should avoid White 2 and buy Black 2 instead.  I plan on doing a Nuzlocke of that game in Challenge Mode in the winter, after I'm done with Platinum (and gone back to wrap up Ruby, of course :lol:) and after I'm done with this semester.

I have White 2. I can't get Challenge Mode unless my friends have Black 2 and none of them play it. And that's why I have DeSmuMe.

Quick note to Oshawott users: GameFreak is trolling us.

Remember when I said I lost to Hugh. Well, it happened in Aspertia and Flocessy. The Zinzolin Double battles are even more trolling. Hugh's Serperior can faint quickly thanks to the overwhelming Ice Type advantage. And as if Drayden wasn't hard enough, they put the Ice Beam TM after the gym. And the only other Ice move is by move tutor with a relatively low base power. And blue shards are so hard to find. Like they force you to catch Haxorus. Also, no Dragon Claw TM until after the main game. Disgusting.

You could always catch an ice-type at Twist Mountain.

Looking on Bulbapedia, the other option could've been buying Ice Punch from Driftveil City.  I'm not sure how hard it is to get red shards in those games, though, and it does take a lot, but it could be worth it if you went for Floatzel again or something (or even something like Muk could learn it, for that matter).  Otherwise, they should've probably brought back Medicham or the Hitmon family or something...

EDIT: You could also look for a Trapinch, come to think of it.  I'm not sure if Swablu comes before or later, but it sounds like the best shot is another Dragon, so you might need to take a risk with it on the second time around.

Another Option would've been catching Trapinch at the Desert Resort and raising it to Flygon.

...Wow, posted at the same time. :lol: One more option I thought of was Steelix with Ice Fang, since Onix comes pretty early and the Metal Coat seems to be only halfway through the game.  Not sure how early the Heart Scales start appearing, though.

I'd really like a little help understanding the shard system in Generation V, by the way.  I think I'd like to teach Heat Wave and Giga Drain to a lot of my main teams in White, so a more in-depth explanation there could help.

Shards are pretty much useless in Black and White. All they're good for there is to sell them in Icirrus City. Heck, you can't even get any in White (they're only obtainable in Black City).

As for B2W2, they're much more widespread, and the good news is that each move tutor only requests one color of shard. Both Heat Wave and Giga Drain require 10 Yellow shards: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Move_Tutor#Shard_Move_Tutors_2
