Pokemon Black - Pokeshifter/PokeTransfer

Alright, it's time to get down to brass tacks about what's going to be one of the most important aspects of the game for anyone that wants a complete Pokedex, but doesn't want to cheat... I'm sure there are a few more of us out there somewhere.

Pokemon Black - Day 40 (In which there is a cave, an epic battle with blurry pictures, and a disappointing conclusion.)

So I feel the first thing I should mention about this cave is that it is very, very large, though so far it seems to be one room. I feel the need to mention this, because while it is gigantic, it is also loaded with treasure, both the sort found laying on the ground, and the ones gained through dowsing. Keep that machine going and you will find a few other plates, as well as a few items that are good for quick cash. If you head to the left after entering the room you'll be lead on a long path around the room, which will then take you to a fork where you have the choice of walking down a pile of ledges, or swimming. I'd walk, because swimming leads to a dead end you can only get past by taking the walking route.

The Five or Possibly Six Most Import-Friendly Video Game Systems

Happy Thanksgiving! Tomorrow signals the beginning of the Madness That Will Consume Us All Christmas shopping season, and I know what you're thinking: which systems are best for playing games in a language I do not comprehend? ...okay, so I know exactly what you're not thinking. But nonetheless, importing games can be extremely rewarding even if you don't have a taste for blundering through JRPGs. Here are the five (or sort of six) easiest systems to import for.

Pokemon Black - Day 39 (If there's a rabbit in this cave, I'm leaving.)

Ok, I missed something important that I feel you ought to know.

As useful as HMs are I'm amazed Pokemon trainers give them away. They must also be dead common.
This kind little lady right here? She gives you HM06, also known as... I don't know, but it's water so I'm going to have to guess that it's Dive, which is the only other water HM that I know of. I'm also hoping it's the last one, as my water HM whore is full up.

So it's off to the east I surf, ready to see what sort of strange and interesting dungeon or cave or something I discover...

Pokemon Black - Day 38 (She is the destroyer of worlds.)

Ok, it's time to start exploring this... black... city... Which, if I'm any judge of these things, will either be called Black City, or Steve in the American release. Man this place is BIG!

Pokemon Black - Day 37 (If they start finishing each other's sentences, I'm setting the house on fire.)

Well we'll start out again as we do in any Pokemon game, by heading down stairs after saving the world and... seeing my mother is either a lesbian, or has an identical twin... I'm cool with the lesbian thing, because that's just how people are made. But twins? That's just creepy.

Doublemint got sick of looking for real twins, and is now experimenting with cloning.
Thankfully after a moment or two, the twin, or possibly my mother, turns into a frightening looking man who talks to me for quite a bit about something I'm not sure of. He asks me a question, I agree because what else am I going to do if not agree with everything everyone ever says to me, and he gives me... a fishing rod. You know, I had been wondering when I would get one of those. After he leaves, I decide to go out and see what sort of trouble I can get into...

Pokemon Black - Day 36 (Looks a bit legendary in here, if you ask me.)

And so we return to the grand... probably not finale.

Where we last left off, I had just beaten the Elite 4, and there was a giant city that sprang up out of the ground before I could fight the champion. N crazied off into the city, and I was just being forced by someone who claims to be the greatest Pokemon trainer in the world to go and follow him, who was backed up in this opinion by someone who claims to be my childhood friend.

This is bullshit, but I guess I have no choice. I follow the stairs up into one of the single least friendly places I have ever seen in my gods damn life.

Retro Pokemon Weekends: Pokemon Green Flailthrough Day 19

Eek, Lickitung.You know, I was going to start this post off with something highly inappropriate said in Spanish, in order to draw your attention my weekend feature on my other blog... but this is better, I think. I ran into this monstrosity on a trainer on the way to the Power Plant to capture Zapdos. You now, I'm not even sure what to say about this thing, except that it deserves a spot on the Cake Wrecks blog. I WOULD ask what it is the Japanese find so hilarious about giant tongues, but... I'm afraid of the answer. That and after seeing what they do to large breasts, I just REALLY don't want to know.
