    Oh it's one of my favourites! Having electric attacks AND a fire attack is SO SO handy!

    Yeah defence is still shit, but it's annoyingly useful in several situations, especially if you picked Oshawott and hate the fire monkey

    My rather thrown-together party that I'd accumulated had just started skirting Level 50 (or four of them had), but I just couldn't get motivated to train up in Victory road, so I decided to just give the league a BASH

    My Samurott just TRASHED the whole Elite four. We did have a few hiccups but mostly it was one of two-hit KOs. I was quite lucky, in the 2-hits KOs, Surf was getting them down to just under half, so they never had a chance to use healing items.

    I suppose I'd better just face N now, I'm a bit more worried about that, I'm shocked I got this far so easily :o

    N is fairly easy but what happens after is so frustrating it'll make you CRY.

    YEAH I fucking did it :disco: Won't say too much as it would give away the story. But what a great story this time around, very EPIC :disco:

    Samurott's Surf saved the day really, Druddigon is a surprisingly sturdy dude too. I've just woked up back home with my victorious team:

    Samurott Lv58 (beating most of the last battles really gave it a boost!)
    Druddigon Lv52
    Zekrom Lv50
    Zebstrika Lv50
    Sigilyph Lv50
    Cobalion Lv42

    I finished two games today :disco: FFIV, YOU'RE NEXT

    Deerling and it's evolution change to winter form, and some of the areas where puddles were are now ice and you can slde across them, and just before dragon spiral tower is a mound of snow you can walk up to get an item previously unaccessable.

    Yeah seems to change quite a few bits and bobs around Unova! Moreso than with any other seasons by the looks of it

    Which one's the fourth one? I have a feeling either that or the 5th one was a real BUGGER for me. But after that it was plain sailing. That shitty zebra will clean up at the airfield gym!

    Although by that time you'll have access to good Electric types and so will be able to stuff Zebstrika back in it's box to rot.

    The fourth gym is that bitch with three identical Pikachu-lite creatures that she swaps EVERY turn.

    Galvantula is a really good electric type i've found.. got really good sp. att and it's one of it's abilities, compound eyes, means Thunder has 100% accuracy.. and it's secondary bug type is useful too

    That's the one that I've been using. Somehow, in spite of having lower defence, special defence and HP than Zebstrika, it seems to die a lot less often.

    Because of the bug typing it only takes normal (rather than double) damage from ground type.. which is insanely useful.. and it also resists fighting type moves, a predominant attack type in black/white

    Why is my forest crappy and empty?? :( Just sort of mindlessly wondering around at the moment. I accidentally walked into a house and has to battle the Diamond/Pearl Champion which I was not happy about as she slaughtered me :(

    I am currently somewhere between the 5th and 6th gyms. I love the way the game just makes it SO easy to do pretty much everything that was a time waster before - for example giving you that egg which boosts the experience received, healing you at almost every turn. It's only taken them FIFTEEN YEARS to get it right.

    It's something to do with linking up with black and talking to people there, OR SOMETHING. I think maybe there are things you can do to attract more residents and trees, not sure what though

    From the ever so handy Bulbapedia:

    White Forest (Japanese: ホワイトフォレスト White Forest) is a forest in eastern Unova. White Forest is exclusive to Pokémon White. Unlike Black City, White Forest has a variety of wild Pokémon as well as characters and tasks that do not occur in Pokémon Black. It is located to the east of Route 15.

    The appearance of White Forest is dependent on the number of people currently residing there. When the player enters the forest for the very first time, the total number of residents is determined by the number of days it took the player to reach White Forest. The number of residents can be between 0 (low occupancy) and 10 (maximum occupancy). In addition to visual changes, some wild Pokémon will only appear with a certain resident.

    At maximum occupancy White Forest contains large trees, several water surfaces and many patches of tall grass. At low level occupancy the trees are smaller, there are fewer or no water surfaces, and patches of tall grass are sparse. The Mayor's House and Pokémon Center are present regardless of how many people reside in the forest.

    All I want is a bloody Reshiram :(

    I saw one on GTS in exchange for an Abomasnow but by the time I got one off the Poke transfer, it had gone.

    Everyone wants Lv9 or under Legendaries that just DONT EXIST. why this fuck is this allowed to happen? It's literally 90% of all requests on GTS

    I'm in that CAVE where the members of that RSPCP group reside. There is a random battle every other step. It's driving me MAD.

    It's all gone a bit quiet :o

    I've nearly finished my "seen" pokedex, just need to see a Braviary, and Volcarona and I think that's IT. Tonight I caught Kyurem and Landorus :disco:

    All the trading on GTS has paid off though, I got a 2nd Master Ball from a guy in the Castelia Pokecenter :disco:

    Pokemon Colosseum does seem like a good bet for 3DS now we are on par with the Gamecube. That made me DIE INSIDE sadly, I did it to get Ho-Oh :shy:

    3rd Playthrough??? Are you resetting it each time or something?
