Multiple Pokemon Black and White Distributions Announced

By AuraKshatriya on November 7, 2010

Aside from the Trade for Evolution!, which has been taking place in Japan since October 10th, more distributions have recently and will be coming up. Tabunne will be available at Pokemon Centers in Japan for over a year (November 3rd of this year to November 4th next year). Instead of being confined specifically to someone`s birthday, it can be obtained either seven days before or after the date also. They`ll be distributed in Cherish Balls, having the new type of Ribbon, the Birthday Ribbon, and will have an ID Number of 11040. This Tabunne`s ability is Healing Heart, and it`s moveset consists of Healing Wave, Refresh, Double Slap, and Helping Hand.

Next up, from December 17th to the 11th of January next year, Pokemon Eggs will be given out over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, from which players can randomly obtain one of three currently unknown Pokemon. This will mirror Satoshi receiving a Pokemon Egg in the Pokemon: Best Wishes episode The Yabukuron Squad and the Secret Base!?, which will air on December 9th.

Pokemon fans could vote for their favourite Pokemon to be given away through the Pokemon Global Link, with the winner being none other than Arceus, which will be available from November 5th to January 31st. It lacks a Dream World ability, and therefore will retain it`s usual ability, Multitype, and it will be at level 100. It`s moves will be Hyper Beam, Perish Song, Recover, and Judgement, and it will be from the Dream Forest. On a side note, the Pokemon that ranked in the Top 10 from the aformentioned votes are as follows:


Fans will also be able to vote on a new C-Gear Skin starting on November the 10th, which can be applied after accessing the Global Link, with the Pikachu skin still being accessible until January 31st.

Finally, various password-unlocked Pokemon, such as the Gregguru (Croagunk), will be available, with Gregguru being available until November 19th, it`s password being given out in issues of CoroCoro Magazines previously. The Kanto Starter Pokemon can be obtained until March 31st of next year, their passwords having been given out in Pokemon Peer, and the Sinnoh Starter Pokemon will be available until November 30th, their passwords having been given out through the Beginning Set TCG Set. Meanwhile, the Hoenn Starter Pokemon will become unlockable starting on November 20th, and their passwords will be revealed in an upcoming guide for Pokemon Black and White.

The BW Floatzel.Net Layout

By Cat333Pokémon on October 31, 2010

Floatzel.Net has finally received its new layout, the first one since the HeartGold and SoulSilver one it had earlier this year. It's in Pokémon Black and White: Zoroark style, like the forum. I think it's a great improvement, as it loads significantly faster and utilizes sleeker fonts. Be sure to check it out!

If you don't see it, clear your cache (Ctrl+F5 or Shift+F5).



VictoryDex Beta 2

By FW on October 31, 2010

Today, Sunday, October 31st, the second beta of the VictoryDex has been released. Sadly not as much was completed as I would have liked but great strides were still made. Completed features include:

  • Generation 5 Items, Abilities, Moves, and Pokémon.
  • The addition of some sprites, including Black and White sprites, Black and White footprints, and the old Red/Green sprites.
  • Partial migration to the VictoryBattles core. This is a somewhat slow undertaking that will be finalized in Beta 3; once done things should run a lot smoother.
  • A fix in some evolution table bugs.
  • Improved page titles. This was a Beta 1 regression.
  • The style switcher is now fully working, so you can pick a different theme if you want, like the newly launched Dark Illusionist theme.

So, yeah, the big thing is the generation five data. The next Beta will work extensively on more interactive features, should give more detailed location data, and will ideally include even more detailed Gen 5 data.

Victory Road FINALLY Gets a Default Style, Two New Styles

By Cat333Pokémon on October 31, 2010

After more than ten full months of sticking with the vBulletin default style, we finally have a new default one to call our own: Dark Illusionist. It is based on Zoroark, as you should be able to tell, and was designed by A'bom, with imagery work by yours truly. Many thanks also to OMGITSJAD and FreezeWarp for helping test out the new style and helping to clean it up. The theme is not fully complete, so expect minor changes as time passes.

In addition, a second new theme, also designed by A'bom, titled Quilava's Inferno, has been released. Many thanks to Buoysel for the banner image.

I hope you enjoy the new style. If not, or you prefer the old way, you can switch styles in the bottom left corner. The old style is called, aptly enough, vBulletin Default Style.

VictoryDex (Post Suggestions+Bug Reports)

By FW on October 30, 2010

The VictoryDex is a comprehensive Pokédex on not only Pokémon, but also items, abilities, and moves.

Current Features (Beta 2)

  • General data, including foreign languages, dex numbers, type advantages, and evolutions for all Pokémon up to and including Generation 5.
  • Moves that can be learned through TMs, Move Tutors, and by Level Up for all five generations.
  • Breeding data, including steps to hatch, egg moves, and egg groups.
  • Location data for the First Generation and Fifth Generation games.
  • Extensive flavour text and sprite data for anybody who wants to use them.

  • Other data on individual moves, items, and abilities.
  • A powerful everything-search, which will search for Pokémon, items, and abilities based even on what it /sounds/ like. So Peeeckachu will find Pikachu.

Planned Features

  • IV and EV calculators are planned, with partial demos included, but they don't work quite right yet.
  • More detailed location data.


  • Many thanks go to Veekun for not only providing all the data but also the sprites. They're awesome =D

About Project*V

By FW on October 30, 2010

Project*V is Victory Road's own self-improvement and self-development committee. Started on October 31st, 2010, the project is indeed quite new and not entirely developed yet. However, the one sure thing is the one goal which it centers around: making Victory Road work better for its users. Indeed, the project itself is perhaps merely an experiment, but the goals have always been, and always will be, here to stay.

Currently, Project*V consists of six committees:


  • Lead by FreezeWarp
  • Other members include Jason_Henge and Cat333Pokémon.
  • Covers VictoryBattles programming and design.


  • Lead by FreezeWarp
  • Covers the VictoryDex programming.

Victory Road Chat (VRC)

  • Lead by Cat333Pokémon and KingOfKYA
  • Covers the VRC, including the backend and client programming.

Victory Road Minor Improvement

  • Lead by FreezeWarp
  • Covers forum modifications and the arcade.

Victory Road Theming

  • Not yet organized.
  • Members include Cat333Pokémon, A'Bom, FreezeWarp, and others.
  • Covers Victory Road theming, graphic design, and related work.

Victory Road Gym League (VRGL)

  • Lead by Shadow, Sunny,The Spirit of Time, and Alakazamster.
  • Other members include the separate gym leaders, and FreezeWarp for technical programming.

Each of these committees work together to centralize each project around VictoryRoad. When one project benefits they all do. As a whole, Project*V is lead by FreezeWarp with Cat333Pokémon and OMGITSJAD participating heavily.

The Future
More is always planned as its creators become more ambitious, as new creators join the project. Even if you're not the hardest workers, we are always in need to people to participate in the focus groups. Don't by shy to report a bug, make a suggestion, or start a project proposal. You could even lead one if it sounds good.
