<3 pokejungle

  • Nuzamaki90

    Gonna go to sleep, by time I wake up, the whole game will have been leaked lol

    • Mr. E

      hopefully the rom leaks out early too…. pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  • farfetch’d


    • meel

      do what?

      • moving

        Move multiple Pokémon at a time in the storage system, I assume.

  • JudgeDreddigon


    Also the thing about bug/ghost type chart was just a typo.

  • TheDevilsCorpse

    Best. Mechanic. EVER.

  • Xander

    Sazanami Town?

    Where is that?

    • Also known as Undella town 😉

      • Xander

        Was the Bay made a town or is this the new location before the Victory Road?

  • What? I was unaware that I could do that in Platinum!

  • raremann

    Does anyone have the 2ch post links to all this info?

  • caleb

    We could do that in Platinum. I seriously had no idea. they should have a way of showing in depth tutorial so people don’t miss this kind of stuff.

  • Xander

    Not sure if I’m disappointed in Burgh’s Pokemon or not….

    Levels are up by 1 which is a good sign seeing as both Cheren and Homika were severely under leveled compared to who they replaced…..and seeing as Burgh gave me trouble I’d love to tear him up easier in the new game with the new early game fire types~

    Revenge is best served burnt to a crisp~

  • Pokebeach says that the games are region locked because the cartridges have TWL on them.

    Is this true?

    • JudgeDreddigon

      Only on Dsi-3DS, pretty much the ones with a camera. I will still work on the DS and DSL.

      The way pokebeach has it worded makes it sound region locked for everything.

      • Oh, good!
        They had me really scared that I was going to have a pointless cartridge.

  • Mei and Hyuu… Me and You…

  • JudgeDreddigon

    Hey pokejungle, if you post anything that’s related to the story in a separate spoiler? I don’t really care about knowing… like the stuff you posted already, just things story related. If you don’t mind of course. 🙂

  • caleb

    So can we already participate in the WT?

  • Oh joy, move tutor!

    Here’s the moves posted in the thread(from ID:sqZTRfqt0’s post):
    ほしがる むしくい ドリルライナー とびはねる シグナルビーム アイアンヘッド いかりのまえば
    さわぐ タネばくだん ダブルチョップ けたぐり ダストシュート 3色パンチ

    Covet, Bug Bite, Drill Liner, Bounce, Signal Beam, Iron Head, Super Fang, Uproar, Seed Bomb, Dual Chop, Low Kick, Gunk Shot, and the three Punches.

    Don’t know if there’s more.

    • Oh right, Drill Liner is Drill Run isn’t it.

    • Also, I totally posted this when PJ updated, meaning I didn’t need to do this.

      • We always appreciate help though <3

        • JudgeDreddigon

          Thanks for putting the story details separate. <3

          • I try to appease the people who are willing to stick with my site 🙂

  • caleb

    I think we get given the zorua from somebody besides N himself.

  • DRDC

    Burgh’s gym Should have been:
    Accelgor lvl. 22
    Escavalier lvl. 22
    Leavanny lvl. 24

    I’m very disappointed…

  • caleb

    The repel news is the best thing I’ve heard so far

  • DRDC

    Skyla doesn’t have a new artwork 🙁

  • Reece

    I wanna know when you can get a solosis, gothita or cubchoo

  • By the way, the move tutor apparently takes shards.
    And you should probably mention the event Deerling…

  • (Let’s see who’s faster)

    Move Tutor number 2
    とっておき てっぺき でんじふゆう マジックコート とおせんぼう ハイパーボイス エレキネット こごえるかぜ アイアンテール アクアテール だいちのちから しねんのずつき イカサマ ばかぢから じゅうりょく
    りゅうのはどう あくのはどう

    Last Resort, Iron Defense, Magnet Rise, Magnet Rise, Block, Hyper Voice, Electroweb, Icy Wind, Iron Tail, Aqua Tail, Earth Power, Zen Headbutt, Foul Play, Superpower, Gravity, Dragon Pulse, Dark Pulse

    This guy takes blue shards (last guy took red)

    • Aw, nuts. Well, the red shard thing…

  • DisgruntledGoat

    So do we have a full local Pokedex yet? What numbers are the Pokemon already mentioned up there?

  • DRDC

    Listen to this….. It was found in Pokemon Black 2 and White 2….. according to pokebeach….

  • Nuzamaki90

    “12:15; The player has now discovered that Unova is in fact frozen in various areas”

    Hahaha OH YEAH!

    High 5 to anyone else who called it.

    • Nuzamaki90

      Both sides are sort of right.

      Nova doesn’t freeze over until after beating Drayden so everyone who said it wasn’t frozen was half right.

      • caleb

        Yeah but we can still claim victory right?

        • Nuzamaki90

          Of course 😀

      • Kriffix

        Most of this people even doubted it when we said it would be frozen at least at some point. I refuse to give them any credit here! XD *be’s selfish*

  • Kriffix

    lol the hints that it would be frozen at some point were immense. Most people reading the Japanese text should have worked this out, but it took physical picture evidence (animated trailer) for most of the fandom to trust the translators. Let this be a lesson, do not doubt the bearers of news! Mwuhahah! *runs away in attempted epicness but fails*

  • caleb

    Let me guess the ice stops spreading where the muskadeers are at. I thought it was weird for them to just be standing around.

  • VinsonSlasher

    Oh yay, they actually listen to us gamers that the levels of Gym Leaders’ Pokemon need to be increased.

    I was like, “ahh two levels only?” with Elesa and Clay, but WOOTS Skyla’s and Drayden’s teams totally surprised me.

    That means the Elite Four and the Champion will be much harder.

  • So, the third tutor takes Yellow….

    Wait what Roost they really did it

  • ru

    how many hours to go? wohooo

  • I didn’t hear anything on the other sites about battling the Plasma Sages, the Shadow Triad, yes (they better have their own cool battle theme), but nothing about the Sages (except Ghetsis of course)

  • Hopefully, these move tutors will give Pokemon like *cough* Zebstrika, *cough* Gigalith, *cough* Unfezant more options than just their STAB moves. Oh, and if Shizui’s Jellicent is Lv51, then…is the Elite Four, like, Lv60???

    • The E4’s Pokemon back in Kanto in Gen 1 were around level 50-70, so it’s nothing special there

  • Uyi

    Well I guess I’m done here. Don’t want to find out anything else, ie Story etc. Thanks for all the news!

  • The fourth tutor takes green shards…

    And, there’s an error: it’s Magic Room, not Trick Room, that’s taught.

    • Actually looking closer, Magic Room is listed (but Trick Room is listed for some reason)

  • Oh hi

    Does it bother anyone else that every Gym Leader only has 3 Pokemon?

  • Waz

    Sad there is no battle frontier…

  • Looking closer, the fourth tutor list is incomplete.
    It should have
    悩みの種 胃液 手助け お先にどうぞ マジックルーム
    ワンダールーム うらみ リサイクル トリック
    ステルスロック 逆鱗 がむしゃら 寝言 スキルスワップ 横取り

    Worry Seed, Gastro Acid, Helping Hand, After You , Magic Room, Wonder Room, Spite, Recycle, Trick, Stealth Rock, Outrage, Endeavor, Sleep Talk, Skill Swap, and Snatch

  • Jordi Lancel

    Seriously… No BW Battle Frontier :S I’m seriously dissapointed!!!

  • Roy

    Champion Iris!!!! Her team is soooooo cool!

    • Waz

      I did NOT see that coming. o.O

    • UGH. Not Iris. I dislike her greatly! Mainly because of the Anime.

  • Nuzamaki90

    I can’t believe Iris of all peope is Iris

    • Nuzamaki90


    • I know, right. :p

  • They better have a good explanation for why Iris is the champion.

    • Roy

      Well back in BW, the female veteran in Drayden’s house did say that Iris had the potential to surpass Drayden.

    • Ralf

      I’m quite liking it actually, especially since she doesn’t have an entire team of dragons. Besides i was expecting her to be in the elite 4 and i was quite dissapointed to see that it was still the same, bit this makes up for it.

      • DZX

        Its almost like Alder’s team

        • Iris’ Team: Hydreigon, Druddigon, Aggron, Archeops, Lapras, Haxorus.

          Alder’s Team: Accelgor, Bouffalant, Druddigon, Vanilluxe, Escavalier, Volcarona.

          Except for Druddigon (and she had one and a Haxorus as 8th Gym Leader) is a totally diferent roster.

          Alder’s Team was a Half Bug/Half Others, Iris’s Team is a Half Dragon/Half Others.

      • Stephen

        Wait so it’s still Shauntal, Marshal, Grimsley, and Caitlin? Do they at least look different?

  • Liking pretty much all of this but they could have added one more pokemon to all the gyms though.

    Why not just keep the old teams but add the new non-Unova pokemon too and raise everyone’s level by 3-5?

    • Basically how the gyms teams could have been

      2. Homika’s Team: Whirlipede -> Scolipede, Trubbish
      3. Burgh’s Team: Swadloon -> Accelgor, Escavalier
      4. Elesa’s Team: + Jolteon
      5. Clay’s Team: + Palpitoad
      6. Skyla’s Team: + Unfezant
      7. Drayden’s Team: + Zwelious
      8. Shizui’s Team: + Starmie, + Vaporeon

  • Java King

    Omg I was just on serebii and they had information (not confirmed yet) that after you beat the game you can choose a choise of 3 difficulties… What I’ve been wanting ever since I first started playing Pokemon ohhh thank you gamefreak! 🙂

    • moving

      We’ve actually got all the information under the “Unova Link” spoiler. It’s pretty much confirmed, PJ translators translated it from the games manual.

      I do believe we were actually the first to have that up, confirming it 😉

      • Java King

        Ohh I didn’t even see it under but I’m soo happy about this I’ve always wanted the game to be more challenging but the game is also kind of meant for kids but people of all ages play soo I’m exited once I go through the game it will be harder

  • pokehunter

    I have the game right now! Castelia sewers is a new location and your rival follows behind you and ypu battle together with wild pokemon and trainers! Gym leaders are FAR too easy!

  • michael

    have we got any info about the rivals teams i wanna know if hes got a crap team like cheren in b/w

  • ant

    Anything on Keyrums forme changes yet like how he changes and what moves he can learn in those respected formes?

  • pokehunter

    More info, Burghs gym puzzle is much more awesome than before and is a travelling spider web design (but nothing like bugsys) its way better. Trainer battle animated sprites and the small graphical the battlefield really make the battles better. One side of team plasma isn’t particulary ‘evil’ and agree with N about caring about ill treated pokemon. The other side are cruel and nasty. One incident is a black suited plasma grunt with a lillipup evo, couldnt make out what excactly was happening.

  • Xander

    GOD EFFIN DAMNIT! Kyurem DOES fuse with Zekrom/Reshiram.


    • ant

      Yeah I just found out about that, i kinda dislike how Kyurem fuses with them i like the idea better if he was to be able to change forms without them and whats a bummer is catching it at lv. 70 not the lower lv like Zekrom/Reshiram and Black/White, agian bummer………..but at he’s formes look awesome though and nice to know he gets Zekrom/Reshiram signatures moves: Fusion Bolt/Fusion Flare.

      • Xander

        What annoys me is now the Movie and the Game contradict one another when all the other movies related to Legendary Pokemon with Form changes stayed true to the form change.

        Deoxys is able to freely change his form in the movies. The games he was released in change forms based on what game he is transferred to.(Gen 3) He can change form with the meteorites outside of certain towns/in the museum. (Gen 4 and 5)

        While latter is more restricted still played part of his natural ability cause movie wise he kept his meteorite intact.

        Shaymin could only transform while exposed to the Gracedia Flower during the day or while the sun was shining. Shaymin would lose his form if the sun was blocked out (Raindance, Hail, Sandstorm) or if it were night time. This stayed true in the games.

        Giratina could only maintain his origin form in the Alternate World while he took another form in ours. This stayed true to the games and was given the Griseous Orb which was from his Alternate World to allow him to change in our world.

        Kyurem can freely change form in the anime but must use an item to fuse with Zekrom/Reshiram? That’s completely different.

        • ant

          Yes i know all of that lol. I would liked it better if in the game if he doesn’t need reshiram or zekrom to transform or in this case he wasn’t such a high level pokemon to capture..i just hope that nintendo (and they probably will) will come out with kyerum event (like they did with reshiram/zekrom on the movie).

        • ant

          But yeah I agree with you how the anime and the games contradict each other on forme changes. Speaking of which it would awesome if Keldeo forme change would actually boosted it stats but it doesn’t look like thats the case.

  • Loving how all this information is cominng out while i am on vacation in London. I dont have time to read it all. But please dont spoil the in- game storyline in the comments for the ones like me who want to wait until the game comes out and play it.

  • chimchardude

    YouTube vid of first 6 hours of gameplay!

    Not sure what happened at Elesa’s gym, it looked unchanged then it looked like she wasn’t even there…

    • Waz

      UGh wish they had better quality…

  • Leo

    Playing my Soulsilver without worrying about this game. I can wait until October tbh.

  • Waz

    Elesa has like two gyms. The first one is the normal one, and then you get something and you go to the other building where it seems like she is doing a fashion show. Then you battle her there.

  • VinsonSlasher

    Are the Elite Four members changed? I can see the types remain but why aren’t the names mentioned? Does this mean we may probably get Lenora as, say a Psychic Elite Four member?

    • DLBlaze

      Lenora is confirmed to be the person who revives your fossils

  • DRDC

    What will happen if both Reshiram and Zekrom fuse with Kyurem?

    • moving

      You can only fuse one of them with Kyurem at a time.

      Having Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem fused at the same time would mean another new forme. One that doesn’t exist 😛

  • Vrdnt25

    Okay so I have White Version. If I buy Black 2 in September and connect the two games, will B2 have White Forest or will White have Black City? Or both?

    • moving

      I’m not 100% sure on it, but I think it’s possible to get both in both games. Through Unova Link. So you’re correct in both respects.
