After wandering confusedly, I figured out how to remove the yellow spiderweb from the electric rock cave. Caught a cute little Bachuru named Chu! :3 About to go through the cave, after I grind a bit more to catch up Chu and Pteri. I'm thinking about sending over suicune to get Zoroark and breed for zorua, but I'm not sure.
After I got the PokeDex from Araragi and after a tutorial on catching Pokemon, I went north to the next town and encountered Team Plasma giving a speech after I did some healing and exploring around the small town. Geechisu and the Plasma gang left and then it was just me and Cheren until N walked up to us and demanded a battle! His level 7 Choroneko was a handful but I won and he left after spouting some random dialogue. Healed and then headed west to Route 2 and encountered a Minezumi and a Yooterii. Caught both and made it past the trainers along the route. Entered Sanyou City and fought the rival in the Trainer's School. Went on to heal then went east and got a Baoppu of my own! Saved at this point.
I just beat Aloe - her entire gym is quite a jump in difficulty, and I barely scraped by. Thankfully there's a good spot to grind nearby, with a nurse right next to a patch of grass. Now I'm going through some forest chasing after Team Plasma since they stole...a fossil skull? I assume their motivation would make sense if I could read Japanese.
I'm already running out of room and I just got past the second gym. Oy vey. At least this means that Gen 5 has lots of Pokemon I like. (although I'll probably replace Minezumi eventually, since it's the weak trash mammal of this gen)
My game just arrived, and got a female Pokabu. Headed to the lab and the next town. I have to say that the normal non-3D graphics despite also being on the DS, are definitely much superior to the IV gen. There's the bright mid-noon sun shining at the top left screen when I first exit my house, to the sparkles of the sun reflection on the waters south of town.
what the hell, i encountered tabunne TWICE in A ROW outside aloe's gym. killed the second one cause there was no point in catching another one. not sure if tabunne's rare though, if not, that'd be a real embarrassment.
I picked Tsutarja (he's so sexy. <3) as my starter. Surprisingly I understand most of the Japanese which is totally awesome! All thanks to my sensei. :3
Anyway, I just watched Team Plasma leave after Geechiru gave his first speech. I kicked N's butt afterward with much ease. So far so good! I love the game to pieces already. Knowing what they're saying really makes it a new experience for me since this is the first time I could understand this much of the language. 4 years ago with Pearl I couldn't read hardly anything, such an amazing difference. ^^
My team is currently this but it most likely will change completely:
Just finished the third gym and now training my Zuguruu. Hiun City is the best city ever, it's just amazing. It's kind of hard to explore with all those strange angles, but after a while you get used to them.
Team so far: Janobii (Lvl. 27) - Hiyapii (Lvl. 27) - Kokoromi<3 (Lvl. 26) - Zuruguu (Lvl. 19)
I love Kokoromi desing <3.
The first part of the game, for those of you that don't have the game is pretty fun, but it has a major problem, until the route before the forest and except for one little cave you'll ONLY find Choroneko, Yooteri, Minezumi and Mamepato in the wild and the regular trainers also are going to have only these pokemon in their teams, which make the game a little boring until you reach the desert.
Just challenged Dento in Sanyou City. I was disappointed that the other two guys couldn't be challenged though. I defeated Dento easily thanks to Baoppu's help and my Futachimaru's speed. I got the C-Gear from Makomo and went west to the next town. On Route 3 I encountered Cheren and had a quick battle with him. I barely won thanks to my Baoppu using a Fire attack on Cheren's Tsutarja. Had a run in with Team Plasma and went to look for them in a cave. I was challenged by them but beat them quickly and solved that crisis. Caught a Koromori in the same cave and left it at the Day Care Center on Route 3. Left south towards Shippou City. Saved.
I came home to find that my game was delivered, so I started playing a little bit ago. I got Tsutarja as my starter, did the stuff with Araragi at the Lab, saw how to catch a Pokémon... and whatever other boring stuff I had to do. Now I'm starting the actual game and will be soon getting into the good stuff >3
@3:43EST: Battled N :3 Now I'm off to train and catch any Pokémon I can find that I do not own ^^
My game arrived! Picked Tsutarja as my starter. I like its evolutions the best. Set up my wifi and got the Liberty Ticket =). So far have captured a Yooteri and a Minezumi. Got to Karakusa town and visited the center, bought some pokeballs. Beat N (barely), and now it's time for a break. I'm loving the game so far. The animations are cute, and I like the new battle music. The new battle menu is really cool. Wish I could just play all night, but...things to do =(.
Got my copy in, only to find they shipped me Black instead of White, which I ordered. Oh well. Started playing. Noticed right away that like HGSS the stat that gets raised due to your nature is red and the stat that gets lowered is blue. Pretty handy if you ask me. =)
I'll post something more in depth tomorrow. I want to play more.
