Pokemon B/W Update - Live Caster tested in Oha Suta!

By MasterDVD007 on July 14, 2010

Just a few hours ago aired in Japan the show "Oha Suta" and well, they revealed a new feature of the Pokemon Black and White Versions, the Live Caster!

If you have a DSi, Live Caster will be able to use for you and will let you have Live Chats with your DSi! If you are near with your friends, it will be able to cast 4 people at the same time, but if you are in Wi-Fi, it would be only 2.
As a side note, you can draw on your friend's face while you are talking with him, and he/she will see it as well! xD
A nice and creative feature that I didn't expected from Pokemon and Nintendo itself.

Hasta luego...

Floatzel "Knocking em out!"

By James on July 14, 2010

I'm sure a lot of you have noticed Floatzel's ranks on various places, including all the Topsites it's on and Alexa. Alexa is an international site ranking system. Floatzel has been increasing ranks like wildfire. As I said in the old topic "Floatzel hitting the thousands" that meant Floatzel hit around 1,000-2,000 unique hits per day. NOW, we are hitting 4,000-5,000 unique hits PER DAY! That more than doubles it! I'd like to congratulate Floatzel on it's advancement and thank you to all who stick it out with us till the end.




Additional CoroCoro Details Revealed

By AuraKshatriya on July 13, 2010

The final parts of information ommitted in the previous leaks has now become available.

Firstly, all the new Pokemon have been given species classifications.

Gochiruzeru->Celestial Body Pokemon, Psychic-type
-As mentioned earlier, it can use a move called "Magic Room" which negates the effects of items for 5 turns.

Rankurusu->Amplification Pokemon, Psychic-type
-Has a new ability called "Dust-Proof", which negates damage from weather effects. It`s other ability is Magic Gaurd.

------->Gochiruzeru and Rankurusu are version exclusive Pokemon.

Wargle->Valor Pokemon, Normal/Flying Type.
-Has the abilities Keen Eye, and Encourage. The latter is shared with Hihidaruma and boosts the power of attacks, but negates their secondary effects (ex.Shadow Ball will do more damage, but will no longer have a chance of reducing the opponent`s Special Defense).
-Can also learn Free Fall, as mentioned before. It is a two-turn attack involving carrying the opponent up into the air on the first turn, then dropping them on the second.

Kibago->Tusk Pokemon, Dragon-type. (The Pokemon shown in the leaked anime character sheet near the new female character).
-It has the abilities Mold Breaker and Rivalry, and can learn an attack called "Double Chop", which inflicts damage on the opponent twice.

Koromori-Bat Pokemon, Psychic/Flying-type
-It can have either the ability Klutz, or Unaware.
-A new move is available for it called "Heart Stamp" which causes the opponent to flinch.

Minezumi->Lookout Pokemon, Normal-type. (The Pokemon shown in the Black and White trailer during Gen`ei no Hasha:Zoroark)
It can have the abilities Run Away, and Keen Eye.

Musharna->Trance Pokemon, Psychic-type
-The evolved form of Munna.
-The smoke it gives off contains the dreams of Pokemon. This "Dream Smoke" allows you to use a Game Sync to upload your save file to the internet.
-It can have the abilities Synchronize and Forewarn.

Spoiler Alert: 

Besides that, new information on Triple Battles has been revealed. The Middle Pokemon can target all three opposing Pokemon, whereas the Pokemon on the left and right can attack the opposite Pokemon, and the opposing Pokemon in the middle. A new ability, called "Telepathy" will also be available for some Pokemon, allowing them to avoid being damaged by their team mates. An as-of-yet unnamed attack also has this effect.

Story-wise, information on N has been revealed. Fitting with the concept of "Right and Wrong" that goes with the theme of Yin and Yang, N is an antagonist, and challenges you to a battle multiple times in the story to prove his ideals of what is right and wrong. He says "Pokemon are friends", and because of this, wants to "free" them from humans, seperating them so that the world is like black and white. As a result, he seeks the power to achieve this end. The player`s childhood friends, Beru (could be romaji for "Bell"), and Cheren, each take a starter Pokemon from Professor Araragi, as do you, breaking the tradition of having one Pokemon not taken by a trainer.

As mentioned previously, Isshu is farther away from the other regions than they are from each other, and as a result, the routes have gone back to "1" and so on, instead of "401", etc.

As some of you may know, there are also version-exclusive locations, namely, White Forest in Pokemon White, and Black City in Pokemon Black.

As for various new game mechanics, the aformentioned "C-Gear" will be given to you by Prof. Araragi`s friend Makomo after completing a task for her.
The High Link we`ve heard of before is a building in Isshu which allows players to connect to other players` world and adventure alongside them.
The DS` infrared capabilities have also streamlines the trading and battling functionalities, with trading being doable straight from the PC Box, and quick battles.
The Live Caster feature which allows players to conduct video chat over wireless (4 people over local wireless, 2 over Wi-Fi) also has a stamp and pen tool to play around with pictures during live chat.

The live chat feature being shown (High-resolution image)
Spoiler Alert: 

One thing (which will make things even harder on me for translating dialogue in-game) is that Kanji is going to implemented into the game as well. For those of you who don`t know, Kanji is a type of Japanese writing which doesn`t use an alphabet. Instead, each written symbol represents one word. Needless to say, there are a LOT of Kanji out there, so memorization is key xD

The game sync feature unlocked through Musharna also gives you more than just a battle option. Your Pokemon can enter a "Dream World" and play with other Pokemon they meet there. The ones they befriend can be brought back to the real world, that is to say, your Black and/or White cartridge. essentially allowing you to get Pokemon which are not neccesarily Isshu-native into the game.

Shoddy Battle & Pokémon Online can be used in the Gym League!

By The Spirit of Time on July 12, 2010

After a discussion with the other GL staff members, we decided to announce that Shoddy Battle & Pokémon Online can now be used along with Wi-Fi in the Gym League.

Currently, for Shoddy Battle, we will be using Smogon server, or any server the Gym Leader prefer. We will see later on if Cat can have his own server in Shoddy Battle.

For those who would like to download Shoddy Battle, please visit www.shoddybattle.com and run it then. However, you need Java in order to run it. You can then register in the server and log in. The server also allows you to create the team you want.

As for Pokémon Online, please visit www.pokemon-online.eu to download the simulator. Once there, simply choose the interface you're using on your computer (i.e Windows or Mac), and the download automatically starts. There's no need for registration.

However, there are still things that need to be considered. While using these simulators, the Rotom appliances, Giratina's Original Forme and Shaymin's Sky Forme cannot be used.

Until next time, see ya!



Even More Black and White Information Revealed

By AuraKshatriya on July 12, 2010

Along with the CoroCoro scans leaked yesterday, the promotional pamphlet we`ve heard about previously with the pictures of a Black and White playable demo have surfaced on 2ch. They show various new features.

Firstly, being exclusive to the Nintendo DSi and 3DS, is a feature called "Television Transceiver". It allows you to have video chats with friends up to 4 on local wireless, and 2 over Wi-Fi through the "Live Caster" item, found in-game.

The Television Transceiver.

Another feature shown is called "Pass By", which allows you to connect with other players as you walk by them, the benefit of which hasn`t been specified yet (this is also presumably a DSi and 3DS Exclusive, as they can connect in sleep mode).



New CoroCoro Scans! Lots of new info!

By Yoshi648 on July 11, 2010

The new issue of CoroCoro is out, and boy do we have a lot of new information from it.

Here we have the Pokémon from the shadow released on Pokémon Sunday yesterday. It is Wooguru (ウォーグル) the Valor Pokémon.

Here we can see Musharna (ムシャーナ) which is the evolution of Munna. Musharna knows something known as Dream Smoke, as to what it does is currently unknown. We can also see Makomo who is a friend of Professor Araragi.

One version of the game will contain White Forest (second image) while the other will contain Black City (first image). Wow now we are getting more then just certain Pokémon to make the versions different!

These are the childhood friends of your main player. I'm guessing they will eventually serve as your rival(s).

Official artwork for Kibago (キバゴ) (the one who looks like Larvitar), Koromori (コロモリ) (the fuzzy-looking bat) and Minezumi (ミネズミ).

And a mysterious person known as N.

Huge thanks to PokéBeach for these magazine scans.
