Pokemon Black and White are the newest trend in the Pokemon franchise and the games are just as great as the other generations. There are a few things I really like about this game, but we’ll talk about that later. The game begins with Professor Juniper giving a gift to you, Bianca and Cheren. The gift are the 5th Generation starters ; Snivy, the Grass Snake Pokemon, Tepig, the Fire Pig Pokemon and Oshawott, the Sea Otter Pokemon. Bianca always takes the starter who’s weak to yours while Cheren takes the one who has an advantage over yours. If you want to know the rest, then buy the games! As I said earlier, there are things I really like about the 5th Generation, and here’s a few of those things I’m delighted to have in Black and White :
– No Safari Zone : These areas are so annoying, you can’t even send your Pokemon to battle them. However, it has been completely removed from Black and White, making filling the Pokedex easier and with more fun.
– Critical Capture : Another new thing added to the 5th Gen is a mechanic called the Critical Capture. This is really helpful, exept if the Pokemon has a low catch rate. If the catch rate is 45 of below, it WILL break free of the ball, no matter what. However, there have been reports of Critical Captures still failing on Pokemon with the easiest catch rate, HP in red zone and affected by a status ailment on websites like YouTube. It CAN happen, as it happened to me once with a Whismur in the White Forest, but you really need to be unlucky for this to happen.
– Re-usable TMs and HMs : THIS is probably the best thing ever added in Black and White. In any other generations, TMs disappears once you use them, but in Black and White, they can be used indefinitely!!! No more worries of teaching a TM to the wrong Pokemon, as you can use it over and over again. It’s like if they have been converted into HMs, but moves are still erasale without the Move Deleter, unlike HMs.
– Dream World : A new online feature that happens not on the Nintendo DS, but rather on the Internet! This new feature requires an account, however, but it’s really easy and fast to create one. You can get items, befriend a Pokemon with a different ability than usual, play games, download C-Gear skins and more!
Pokemon Black and White are games that any audiences may enjoy, as they are fun, challenging, complex, and the game also change along with the seasons, where two Pokemon, Deerling and Sawsbuck, changes form when the seasons changes. I bought the White Version the same day it was released, but I first imported the Black version from Japan so I could get a taste of what’s the new generation of Pokemon. Well, have fun playing these games!!!
