Oh boy, we were expecting news to come thick and fast, and it just hasnt stopped all day. We’ve been unable to post due to real life (which sucks, try and avoid it if you get the chance). So first we’ll be catching up, then we’ll be updating as often as possible with all the latest information.
To help keep this page clutter free, we’ll have most of the information after the jump – but we’ll keep up to date with this handy little guide:
Last Update: 17th Sept 20.35 BST
Current number of Known Pokemon: ALL OF THEM
Curent Number of Known New Moves: 17 – plus Older moves listed as part of the new TM’s list
Other peices of Info: Masuda Lies… see main post for details
Notes: We’ll use this section to let you know anything else quick without having to hit the jump. First thing you need to know is that the picture of the manual we posted yesterday is from the black version of the game. New – Elite 4 info added, right neer the top, added rematch and a very interesting note on how Gamefreak Director Junichi Masuda is a dirty rotten liar
Right, hit the jump and start exploring the new Isshu
First up, the boring, but ‘no pictures needed’ news
In the white version there’s a different leader, called Shaga, who’s an old man with white hair and a large white beard that covers his whole mouth.
We now know the elite 4 info.
First up, Shikimi (female), who is a Ghost-type trainer. Aparently uses a Desukan (Lv.48), Burungeru (Lv.48), Goruugu (Lv.48), and Shandera (Lv.50).
Next is Giima (male) a Dark-type trainer. His team aparantly has a Zuruzukin (Lv.48), Warubiaru (Lv.48), Reparudasu (Lv.48), and Kirikizan (Lv.50).
3rd is Katorea (female) a Psychic-type trainer. She aparently uses a Rankurusu (Lv.48), Musharna (Lv.48), Shinborah (Lv.48), and Gochiruzeru (Lv.50).
4th is Renbu (male) a Fighting-type trainer. His team is said to have a Nageki (Lv.48), Dageki (Lv.48), Roopushin (Lv.48), and Kojyondo (Lv.50).
The champion is your friend Belle, whom you fight several times across your journey anyway. She’s said to use a team consisting of Muurando (Lv.66), Yanakkii (Lv.66), Musharna (Lv.66), and Enbuoo/Jaroda/Daikenki (Lv.70). The last Pokemon depends on your choice of starter, since she starts with the type that’s WEAK to your choice, this would be the first time you have a natural advantage over your main rival during the whole game without having to change out your starter.
After beating the elite 4 – you go on a journey to find 7 sages. Why? Well something to do would be one good reason!
Elite 4 remach details are here, with an interesting twist at the end
Shikimi – Level 71 Desukan, Burunkeru, Goruggo, Froslass, and Level 73 Shanderaa;
Giima – Level 71 Sharpedo, Warubiaru, Zuruzukin, Drapion, Lepardasu, and Level 73 Kirikizan;
Katorea – Level 71 Musharna, Rankurusu, Shinporah, Bronzong, Gochiruzeru, and Level 73 Metagross;
Renbu – Level 71 Breloom, Kojondo, Dageki, Nageki, Toxicroak, and Level 73 Roopushin
And the twist? Well Belle isnt the champ anymore, now you have to fight a guy called Adeku. His team consists of Buffalon, Kurimugan, Baibanira, Shubarugo, (all) at level 75 and Urugamosu at level 77
Junichi Masuda LIES. On Pokemon Sunday this past week, Gamefreak Director Junichi Masuda said that no characters from previous games would be in Black and White. Well he’s a dirty rotten Liar. Not only do International Policeman Looker from Pokemon Platinum show up in the game, but Sinnoh Champion Cynthia shows up for a battle with you. Her team consists of Spiritomb, Milotic, Lucario, Wargle, and Shibirudon (all) at level 75 and Garchomp at level 77. Also Elite 4 Memeber Katorea shares a name AND looks a lot like Katorea who acompanies the Frontier Brain Darach. Enlgish Players will know her better as Caitlin. So, no cameo’s huh?
Acording to ROM rips, All of Rotom’s Alternate Forms are no longer Electric/Ghost – they become Electric/whatever the type of move that they gained as thier super special move… and if you understood that, your better than I am!
HM’s. there are 6 in the game, and they are Cut, Fly, Surf, Strength, Waterfall, and Dive
Aparently there are only 8 boxes in the PC. This is extreamly low, even Pokemon Yellow had 12 boxes and it only had 151 pokemon to deal with. Pokebeach has theorised that after you get the National Dex, you’ll get more boxes and we here at The Pika Club hope this is ture, especially me who likes to have a complete collection of one of each pokemon…
18th Sept Update: Good news, you do get the amount of boxes increased to 24, most likely after you get the national dex.
N Works with Team Plazma. It makes since since they both want Pokemon free from Humans. N pretends to be your freind, but is taking orders from Geechisu, the head of Team Plazma
Mega Drain’s base power has been increased from 40 to 75. Whether Giga Drain will also be affected is unknown
