so far the game is pretty kickass. before you hit the first gym, go to the ruins and a guy will talk to you, tell you what your starter's weakness is, then give you a monkey looking thing that is your weakness's weakness (ie, if you chose water, which i did, he'll say your weakness is grass types and give you a fire type).
you are playing it?

the nuzlocke way like a man? it's still early enough to start over if not.

the first playthrough should always be nuzlocke i say. you can play the full game when you lose or when the 3rd game comes out.

dude, i dunno if you can play this one the nuzlocke way. first gym leader has a normal type and whatever your weakness is. it took me 5 tries and 4 pokemon to beat him. he spends his whole time pumping up his atk and special atk and the takes you out in one hit (even his grass type vs my fire type)

also faced a trainer with an electric type that can KO any of my pokemon in one hit.

and my most astounding discovery yet: TMs are no longer a one time use item!

this is what happens when you choose wottard.

why did you not choose SMUGLEAF?

you are never too cool for smugleaf. smugleaf is too cool for you!

it actually sounds like the easiest game to play. reusable TMs AND you get a free pokemon that's automatically complementary to your starter? smugleaf is too cool to see this as a challenge.

and ill still kick your *** !

oh, hard part is that almost everyone in the first 2 areas (gyms and routes) use mostly normal pokemon, so gl finding an attack thats super effective this early in the game. and it seems that leer and growl are really effective at lower levels.

am i the only one seeing the irony of having dogs that people nickname yorkshire terrorists able to learn recoil damage moves like takedown?

or that a western based locale has a team called "P"lasma whose plan is to liberate the animals from people like a certain other western group that also starts with P?

ok, had the game since release day (acutally had to work the release so i didnt get it til i got off work). im going to skip the gameplay and jump right into the extra features, many of which are not active yet:

the GTS (Global Trade Station) from the genIV games is now the Global Link. it is currently not active, but serves as two functions: allowing for battles and trades over the internet, and access to the Dream World.

Dream World - basically a storybook-style online multiplayer game based around farming berries (you dont plant berries in the game world anymore) and decorating your house. each of your friends has a little floating island of their own that connects to yours and you can visit those at any time to help tend their berry farms, etc (its all hosted on nintendo's GL server).

Entralink: possibly the coolest thing in a handheld pokemon game ever. it allows you to (via local wifi) to literally JOIN in on a friends adventure (although in a greyscale world, hence the "black and white"). i havent been able to test this out yet, but im hoping to soon.

Xtransceiver: a communication device with friends. it allows you to do up to a 4way (local wifi) or 2 way (wifi) voice/video (with DSi/XL) chat with your friends
