This Pikachu will be be available in 15 stores located in Tokyo. It will be distributed from August 20, 2010 to September 5, 2010. Of course all games DPt and HGSS can recieve it.

Tabunne Leaked, Blogger Post Reveals Demo Details, Basurao and Darumakka Pictured

By AuraKshatriya on August 10, 2010

More pictures from the Black and White demo buses have been leaked onto the internet. They have confirmed the existence of the rumored Pokemon, Tabunne. It is apparently a Normal-type, and is able to (though not limited to) learn the moves Growl, Doubleslap, and Helping Hand. Basurao, another Pokemon that was rumored, and pictured (albeit poorly) also also been pictured more clearly. It is a Water-type. Darumakka, the supposed pre-evolution of Hihidaruma, is also pictured more clearly. These pictures can all be found below:




In addition, a blogger was able to play a demo of the game at Haneda Airport, and posted details about it:

-In the demo, each playthrough randomly gives the player a team of three out of Tsutaaja, Pokabu, Mijumaru, Shikijika, and Zorua. The season, as well as which three Pokemon are usable varies each time.

-The demo takes place in and around the area of Sekka City.

-The objective of the demo was apparently to battle both Cheren and Bell, and then seek out Prof. Araragi.

-Even with Illusion activated, which causes Zorua to take the form of the second Pokemon in the party, the battle screen still says "What will Zorua do?". Even weaker attacks will dissolve the Illusion, and neither the type, nor the moves of the Pokemon Zorua transforms into are transferred to Zorua. It also knew Faint Attack and Fury Swipes in the demo.

-In the demo, Shikijika knew the moves Double Kick, Faint Attack, Leech Seed, and Take Down.

-Pokabu has a high HP stat and Attack stat, but low Defense. It`s signature attack, Nitro Charge, is a Physical Fire-type move with a base power of 50, 100% accuracy, and has a chance to raise the user`s speed.

-Mijumaru has a high Attack stat. The blogger also speculates that it`s final evolution may be a Water/Fighting-type. It`s signature move, Shell Blade is a Physical, Water-type move with a base power of 75, 95% accuracy, and a chance to lower the opponent`s Defense stat. The blogger described the animation for the move as "Using Crush Claw with a shell".

-The blogger didn`t manage to see Tsutaaja`s stats, but other people he spoke to who had also played the demo said it focuses on Special stats. It`s signature attack, Grass Mixer, is a Grass-type, Physical move with a base power of 65, 90% accuracy, and has a chance of lowering the opponent`s accuracy.

Top Global Posters Re-Enabled

By FreezeWarp on August 9, 2010

The top global posters have been re-enabled. They also 100% respect a forum's "do-or-don't count towards post count" setting; previously a blacklist of only specific forums was used, now everything works perfectly (since I finally figured out this bitfield thing :P).

Remember, you can access it by going to "Quick Links" and then "Top Posters".



More and more information leaked!

By The Spirit of Time on August 9, 2010

-A new image was leaked about anew Pokémon. It doesn't seem to be from CoroCoro, so the image is still unconfirmed. A Pokémon has been shown, named Wakoishi. I couldn't get the image, so if anyone can get it, it would help. Regarding this Pokémon, no more information was revealed, apart from its name.

- It is also confirmed that different wild Pokémon will appear in different seasons.

- Sturdy ability has changed. Before, only OHKO moves were negated against this ability. However, in B/W, any move can't OHKO the user of this ability.

- Victini is found in the basement of the lighthouse, and if by accident you knocked it out, it will appear again.

- This is Victini's Dex entry: "It makes limitless energy inside its body. It releases this energy on any Pokemon who touches it." The player will meet Victini on Liberty Garden Island while investigating an incident there.

- Pokemon found in the Dream World will sometimes have different abilities, such as Vaporeon with Hydration.

- Berries are now only available in the Dream World

- The PokeShifter is only available after defeating the Elite Four, further reinforcing the previous blog post by Jun`ichi Masuda that there will be only Generation V Pokemon prior to obtaining the National Dex.

- The Pokemon Black and White game cases will come in boxes which feature Reshiram and Zekrom`s tails illuminated, as well as a Black (or White, depending on which version is bought) edging pattern over the standard box colour.

-The special abilities (not for your Pokemon, but for the player) obtained through completing High-Link missions is called "Deru Power". It can have affects such as doubling experience points gained by a Pokemon, or halving PokeMart costs, etc., and it is obtained from the Entrance Tree in the High-Link Area.

- Using the Global Link, one may download new Pokemon Musical songs, as well as covers for the C-Gear.

- Pokemon Musicals take place in the Musical Hall, with the Goods Case storing items such as accessories and costumes for the Pokemon to wear. Additionally, fans from the audience may give the player gifts once the show ends.

- In Karakusa Town, Team Plasma will be firstly shown giving a speech about how to free Pokémon from humans. Notice that this is the same ambition of the antagonist 'N'.

- There will be backgrounds that can be downloaded and allow you to customize your Pokédex using Global Link.

- Through the High Link, you can trade items and berries.

- It is confirmed now that the Battle Subway has the same exact features as the Battle Tower.

- It has been confirmed that there are 8 Gyms in Isshu to be challenged.

- The first two Gyms, Dento`s in Sanyou City, and Aloe`s in Shippou City, require the player answer questions rather than battle other trainers in order to battle the Gym Leader. One such question asked by Dento involves type compatibility, whereas a question asked by Aloe is "What is something delicious which is warmed in a pan, that you eat?".

- Shippou City contains a museum which is presumably part of the Gym. It is also is a very traditional city, having railroad tracks being 100 years old.

- Makomo, Prof. Araragi`s friend, lives in Sanyou City.

- TMs will no longer expire after being used, in the same way as HMs.

- In dark green grass, Double Wild Pokemon battles can take place (as previously seen in a trailer with the female protagonist encountering two Miruhoggu at once).

- It is also confirmed that Isshu region will have only 8 gym badges.

It increases Victini`s accuracy, as well as the accuracy of any other Pokemon on the same team as Victini. The move "Complete Burn" was also explained a bit further in detail. It deals damage and burns the opponent`s berries, making them unusable. It`s other moves are Confusion, Quick Attack, and Endure (at the time of capture).

Battle Features:

Black and White Tour Bus Reveals New Details

By AuraKshatriya on August 6, 2010

A scan from the Pokemon Black and White tour buses going through Japan has surfaced on the internet. It shows the official artwork of a previously shown Pokemon, Gigaiasu. It is classified as the "High Pressure Pokemon", and is a pure Rock-type with the ability "Sturdy". It`s height is 1.7m tall, and it weighs in at 270 kg. Additionally, a brand new Pokemon was revealed, Emonga, the Flying Squirrel Pokemon, an Electric/Flying-type Pokemon with the ability static. It is 0.4m (the same height as Victini), and weighs 5 kg. The scan can be found below:


Also, a picture of some gameplay from inside the tour bus has revealed another new Pokemon:


It is apparently named "Darumakka" (ダルマッカ), a Fire-type Pokemon, and the pre-evolution of Hihidaruma.

1.Shikijika is a Normal/Grass type and has the ability Chlorophyll.
2.Shikijika`s appearance will change based on the season. In Spring, it will be pink, Summer green, Autumn orange, and Winter brown.

3.Another new Pokemon mentioned (though no pictures were given) is
Basurao (バスラオ), which knows Aqua Jet and Uproar.

4.Growth seems to now have a slightly altered effect. It now raises the Attack stat in addition to the Special Attack stat by one stage when it is used.
