How do I use the Transfer Machine? I got the menu option, I select DS Download & Play with Europese SS in other DS. However the DS with SS finds Pokémon White, connects then cuts of the connection saying something in japanese... Do I need a Japanese 4th gen game for this or can I use my EU 4th gen?

Gonna post some general spoilers about various things to answer questions before they are asked.

For non Japanese speakers the game progression can leave you stranded in certain places...

Heavy spoilers, but I separated them with even more spoiler tags. Open at own risk :tongue:

What did Team Plasma steal at the Second Gym?

Fossilized Dragonite's Head (not an Aron lol). You can see the statue as the centerpiece of the museum. You'll figure out why by the end of the game.

Stuck? - Gym Hints

Try out PokeBeach for some plot spoilers if you are stuck and don't get your answer here :)

First Gym

Really? Come on, just follow the flow of the game. Explore!

Second Gym

Really? Come on, just follow the flow of the game. Explore!

Third Gym

Really? Come on, just follow the flow of the game. Explore!

Fourth Gym

Really? Come on, just follow the flow of the game. Explore!

Fifth Gym

Really? Come on, just follow the flow of the game. Explore!

Sixth Gym

Kay, just go down to the bottom left of the town and follow the event there. Finish event, beat Gym, then go up from town and the gym leader will unlock the cave.

Seventh Gym

Really? Come on, just follow the flow of the game. Explore!

Eighth Gym

Really? Come on, just follow the flow of the game. Explore!

After 8th

Go to the side desert in between the 3rd and 4th Gyms, find an underground temple and follow the events etc. Once you get ported back outside go back to the 8th gym town and proceed to the 12 oclock (elite four) areas.

HM/TM Locations

6 Sage Locations

Dive Cave Reward + New Language Blocks.

I have no clue what they say. You have limited breath (tiles moved) to ascend to the 4th floor room.

I got my Raikou/Entei/Suicune and Celebi transferred over.

Finding the Zorua event wasn't so bad, but I haven't been able to find anything concrete about where to start the Zoroark event - anyone have any info on that?

So far all I've been able to find is a vague mention of a "Forest of Illusion" area, which sounds like it's a special area only for the Zoroark event, similar to Liberty Island.

I'm a bit stuck. I'm just outside of Thunder Stone Cave and can't go in...what do I have to do?

Go back into town, go to the bottom left corner where the shipping bay/warehouses are and you will see Cheren.

Why doesn't the pokéshifter work?

Currently you have to have a retail japanese cart of gen 4 (no flash cart). That + Flash/Retail of B/W = Pokeshifting.

It's region locked.

Okay this is weird. Victini broke out of a ULTRA BALL in the RED HEALTH but not out of a GREAT BALL at the same health. Where is the logic in this?

EDIT: I have tried several times to get it down low and use an Ultra Ball and every time it breaks out, even when it probably had say 1HP. x.x

its all about percentage.

It is about the catch rate (a set number) and the ball's catch rate.

The battle RNG in B+W is weird, being static. A specific thrown ball's result will be the same if you rewound to a save state and throw it again on the same move.

Different balls may have different results, even if they have a lower catch rate # (1.5 v 2). Thats why Great ball was better than Ultra ball (for that turn at least :D)

From what I understand. You get the elemental monkey that is weak against your starter. E.g. I picked the Grass Starter so I got the Water Monkey. And Victini if you get him is a Psychic Fire Pokemon. :P
