    Shockking i dont know anymore

    I played a ridiculous amount of Black and it was the first game where I learned about EVs, IVs, breeding for shinies (and RNG abuse which helped me get my Pokemon exactly as desired).

    I ended up with more than a full team that I cycled for online battles (Random Matchup) and the Battle Subway by the end of the game. They included:

    Volcarona
    Galvantula
    Terrakion
    Slowbro
    Scizor
    Gengar
    Politoed (I was so excited to make a rain team but ended up getting bored using exclusively it on Random Matchup online battles)
    Kingdra
    Toxicroak
    Ferrothorn

    Lots of great Pokemon for the time. Can't say I was too creative with my choices or movesets, the most unique thing had to be my Focus Sash + Destiny Bond Gengar (not that creative but more than most).

    Here's my team for Pokemon White
    • Emboar(male): At the point, I had never used a Fire type starter so I picked Tepig
    • Krookodile(male): I needed a Pokemon to deal with Electric's one weakness, and Sandile was an early pick. Intimidate was the ability I chose
    • Leavanny(male): Filled the Grass quota. I mainly chose it because it was an early Pokemon that proved effective still
    • Sigilyph(male): An odd Pokemon that I encountered in the desert. It fit the flyer quota, and proved to be pretty good
    • Jellicent(male): Seeing this Pokemon, I knew I wanted it. Specifically the male variant. Add Water Absorb and it was a bulky boi
    • Eelektross(female): I also knew I wanted this Pokemon since its Levitate made it have no weaknesses

    My inital teams for each set of games.

    White
    - Emboar: Favorite starter of the 3.
    - Stoutland: I told myself I would catch the first Pokemon I encountered and it ended up being an Adamant Lillipup.
    - Simisage: It gets given to you and was pretty decent. I don't know it was 8 years ago.
    - Krookodile: Freaking cool Pokemon and stupidly strong.
    - Reuniclus: I liked the design when it was first revealed and wanted one.
    - Vanniluxe: Sue me I like the Ice Cream Pokemon.

    White 2
    - Samurott: I wanted to use a different "first" starter and I am not a big fan of Serperior.
    - Lucario: Everyone likes Lucario and getting to use one from the beginning is awesome.
    - Electivire: Very versatile Pokemon you can get early on as well.
    - Braviary: I liked the design but did not like how late you got it in B/W. So of course I seized the opportunity since you catch this monster after only 3 badges.
    - Seviper: I wanted to use something I had never used before and it seemed like something no else would use. Ended up being surprisingly decent.
    - Camerupt: I like having Ground types on my teams and having a Fire type as well was just a bonus. Plus I had never used it prior to this play through.

    Here's my team for Black. Except for the genderless, they ended up as male
    • Samurott: My natural instinct is to use the Water starter. Samurott did not disappoint thanks to its stronk powers and Fighting/Bug moves serving as coverage
    • Durant: While a late game choice, Durant's speed and power proved a deadly combination and it was a lot stronger than I thought the ant would be
    • Sawk: I got this Fighting type early on, and more or less kept it
    • Emolga: This was an in-game trade. Electric/Flying was one of my favorite typings
    • Golurk: Served as the flier, and a power house thanks to Iron Fist
    • Cryogonal: Fit the speedster and Dragon-busting profile, special user

    In Black my team was:
    Seperior
    Haxorus
    Chandelure
    Sigalyph
    Simipour
    Scrafty

    Actually I have more fond memories of the prerelease. I was gobbling up those Pokéjungle rumors like candy.

    Here are my teams for the sequel games

    White 2
    • Serperior(male) Mainly because it was the one Unova starter I hadn't used yet
    • Hydreigon(female): Because of the pre-evolution haircut, I named her Beatles after The Beatles. Late-game, thanks to Hustle and an accuracy-boosting item it made up for taking forever to evolve. So did the beast that was its final form
    • Chandelure(male): Because this is a generally great Pokemon
    • Magnezone: The Sturdy ability finally becomes useful
    • Walrein(female): Thick Fat was a useful ability, I needed a surfer and something to deal with Dragons
    • Reuiniclus(male): I needed a Psychic type
    Black 2
    • Emboar(female): My preferred starter of the three
    • Omastar(male): I decided to use the Dream World, allowing me to use a Pokemon I have never had the opportunity to use but always wanted. I've liked it long before the Lord Helix meme
    • Ferrothorn(male): The ability of Iron Barbs combined with Rocky Helmet is amazing
    • Drifblim(female): A flyer and anti-Psychic type
    • Drapion and Galvantua: Just wanted it
