I picked up a Roggenrola early on in the game.

Not sure how I can trust you or not, but if you're willing, send me a message (or post in this topic, or both)

Thanks.
Sure, I can help you if you want.

Watabou - Will you create a new thread for BW 2 or will you edit?

Oh, and my friend may have found a hint in regards to a Ruby/Sapphire remake.She cheats on most Pokemon games, and when she got all of the items, the contest scarves showed up in her inventory. You cannot obtain them in Black and White, nor can you send items over from 3rd of 4th gen. This leads me to believe that there will be a legitimate way to obtain them, and their only uses are raising sheen for contests.

That seems a little odd though. Why would you want things transferred back to the old game. Wouldn't it make more sense to transfer over from 1 to 2?

That's the problem. I've spent so much time transferring from the SoulSilver and Platinum games... It would waste more time transferring to BW 2.. I think there's a possibility that we can only have a certain amount of Pokemon in BW 2, maybe a team plus another team only available (twelve Pokemon). Seems like a continuation to me-- that would make sense.

We'll see soon enough. Very excited!

Oh, I see now. It was the same way with DPT though. The rage candy bar was in the games files to prevent there being any hassle if you wanted to trade a Pokemon from HG/SS while it was holding the item. Remember trading from Red/Blue to Gold/Silver? Many people found it a pain that you could not send items or half of the moves in the games over. Ever since then, it's been so much more streamlined. If you wanna transfer a Pokemon from 1 gen to the next, you can only send it one way. Plus the items have been included in the games files. Therefore you cannot get it legitimately until the new games come out.

Black2/White2 have been released in Japan. From what I have seen of the coverage, they actually look like a good follow-up.

I've been already playing it and so far, I like it a lot. Everything's redesigned, especially the gyms. Each gym has its own little music too.

Can't wait for the English version though. Apparently, it's going to be releasing this Fall, which is a short amount of time compared to past versions
