Pokemon Black and White Day 5+6

I don’t think I’ve made it clear enough despite multiple attempts so I’ll make it clear now. I can’t accept friend codes right now. I’m getting a new DS, and when I transfer over to a new DS none of my friend codes will transfer. My DS isn’t set up to the new wi-fi in the house right now. If you give me your friend code right now, I will lose it.

There was something else I wanted to put here, but I forgot…so I guess onward to update.

Pokemon Black and White, Day 3

As always, everything is below a cut so some peeps don’t get spoiled.

Pokemon Black and White, Day 2

So it seems that it probably will be best to wait a couple weeks until I post my friend code due to moving DS systems, and Nintendo being stupid about moving systems.

I didn’t play as much today…today I got up at 9, spent a hour getting ready, then left the house with my mom at ten to do things that needed to be done. We didn’t get back home until four thirty. So not much coverage today. A lot of pokemon catching though.

Pokemon Black and White Day 1

I don’t know how many days I’ll be doing this, but for the first few days I’ll post my impressions. And hoping this format will be less annoying then the 10 million people liveblogging the game by doing it as an end of the day post. Everything is behind a cut in an attempt not to spoil people more then may have already in my anticipation.

By the way, if you want my friend code, become a fan of Black and Blue Socks on Facebook. If you want the info but don’t facebook, I suggest a sock puppet account without any personal info. What matters is it’s a way for me easily to contact other people and vice versa. Become a fan here. Please respect my privacy and do not friend me on facebook. I have a female Tepig, so will be willing to breed baby Tepigs when I get there, as well as trade with people who have Black but don’t have access to anyone with Pokemon White.

Anyway, so far…

Round-up of Pokemon Links

With Pokemon Black and White coming out tomorrow, here’s the links that I like to use for Pokemon. Some of these may be “Duh” to you, but not everyone knows about them, so hush.

Websites

Serebii.net is a good go to for news, basic game mechanics, and has a handy pokedex. The navigation just may take awhile to get down.

Bulbapedia, one stop pokemon encyclopedia for anything pokemon related.

Best place for indepth pokemon analysis

Smogen University-Competitive Battling 101. The bad thing about is its very straight forward not very creative in it’s moveset and how pokemon can be used.

Hardrock Pokemon is a little expensive, but it’s worth it for the merchandise in great condition and fast shipping.

Tumblrs

Trainertips offers in-depth analysis of the Gen V Pokemon, but I can give and take that. What’s really great is the advice he offers, not to mention the awesome pics he posts.

Officer-Jenny posts a lot, but that includes Pokemon news and awesome pictures

Fypblog has pokemon memes, moments of pokemon geekdown and cool fan merchandise.

Diglett Cave is the tumblr for Pokemon Podcast and full of pokemon goodness.

An Obsessive Compulsive Nuzlocke Run

So… my experience with a Nuzlocke run. To write about the Nuzlocke challenge, I felt like I had to have an inkling of what it was like. So I sat down, and started a run on my Pearl version that I own for hacking the game (which hasn’t really worked out yet anyway, as it seems I wore out my r+l buttons), for about nine hours. So far I can say that to me, yes, the experience is a little overrated, but it is fun none the less.

The famous/infamous Nuzlocke Challenge

Keeping up with anticipation for Black and White, we get another Pokemon related post today! I feel like talking about the phenomenon that came out of the internet, and seems to be Pokemon-only, the Nuzlocke challenge. It seems once upon a time, someone named Nuzlocke thought the games were a little too easy. Which makes sense, when you’ve spent way too many hours on the previous games, and trying to play through Pearl, as well as having access to make the most awesome starting team ever…it’s a little repetitive, even for obsessive compulsive me, who’s brain gets off on repetitiveness. I can imagine anyone not OCD would look to spice up the game a LOT sooner.

First version
