** Additionally, it's implied that the "new" cities in southwest Unova were really always there (Hugh has lived in Aspertia for at least five years, Alder lives in Flocessy and there's a Memory Link there, Brycen's always worked for Pokéstar Studios, etc.). We just didn't get to go there in the original [=BW=] because Hilbert/Hilda simply never caught a boat to that area. (A similar thing could be said for the Hidden Grottoes, now that I think about it: Hilbert/Hilda simply never noticed them.)


Added DiffLines:

** If it ''did'' block the release mechanism, that would have been ''[[FridgeLogic incredibly]]'' [[VillainBall stupid]] of him. Sure, it would keep the player from sending out Pokémon against him, but Ghetsis wouldn't be able to send out his own Pokémon, either. The cane kinda [[AWizardDidIt runs on magic]] as its only "sensible" explanation, anyway, so Ghetsis probably intentionally found some way to keep ''capturing'' from working without blocking ''releasing'', too.

** EV training, most likely. That, and the fact storyline Pokemon are never properly EV trained. Until X and Y's new features, that is.



** Until Undella Town became connected with Reversal Mountain, Lentimas Town was ''completely isolated'' from the rest of Unova by foot, and likely not a point of interest for trainers (As long as it already existed. I think two years is enough time for a town like Lentimas to be developed). Similarly, Humilau City with the Marine Tube and the Giant Chasm, though this one has a better excuse when you consider how comparatively rudimentary its infrastructure is towards other cities - it could be a touristic resort that was recently repurposed. Now, about the landslide on Route 10, I guess there's nothing to explain - it just happened. It must have not happened recently due to the way the new Victory Road entrance looks like, and given that N's Castle is buried underground, maybe... maybe ''that'' was the cause?



*** That's the explanation he gives, in a rather snobby and dismissive manner. It's impossible for the player to say "look. My pokemon are either fainted or low on health, so would you kindly allow me to heal up before this battle?" The player is ''forced'' to take any challenge no matter the situation, and it's explicitly stated in every game I've played (that is all gen I-V games) that eye contact between trainers -> battle. I'm wondering why the player allows this douche to act in that manner, when the rules are eye contact -> battle.
**** Because his main passion is music, not battling :^)

** [[ElementalRockPaperScissors Type charts.]] My lead the first time I played this section was a [[ForMassiveDamage Flygon.]] Sure, the second time I fought it, I led with a Weavile, but if the game really implemented this, there would be Pokemon we'd honestly question using as options. And there would be [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters over 649 models to pick from, if they weren't already made.]]

** It's a ''Preschooler''. What are the chances it's a battling prodigy? As far as I know, at least in B2W2 Trainer have difficulty value, ranging from 0 (picks everything by random, it could as well kill its ally if it happened to be a Double Battle) to 15. Somewhere there I also found more:

* So we get to see what Kyurem looks like when fused with either Reshiram or Zekrom, but why not fused with both of them together? They're both fragments of what Kyurem used to be, and they both canonically exist in both versions of G5. So wouldn't that mean both Black Kyurem and White Kyurem are still incomplete forms of the original pokemon. Are we gonna have to wait until some later-gen remake just to see the full dragon?

** Ghetsis only had one Gene Splicer. Can't "absofuse" both of them with only one Splicer.

*** A Grunt used Sleep Powder directly on the player in XD, and if I remember correctly, the BigBad of XD also made physical threats against the player at the end of the game after his defeat, but nobody else has ever directly attempted [[spoiler: murder]]. (although it's indicated that several sailors DID die when Cipher had XD001/Shadow Lugia pick the SS Libra up out of the water. However, they weren't specifically trying to kill anyone, it was just collateral damage.) Moreover, they don't need to worry. While the ''Pokemon'' franchise has never gone there, the E label has tons of games with violence on that level in it. ESRB ratings do have a little bit of wiggle room on them: for instance, a quick scan of some games I own confirm the loaded with ParentalBonus humor, ''BowsersInsideStory'', is only an E, while even games with a lot of focus on conflict and death, like ''GoldenSunDarkDawn'' and ''StarFox'' 3DS have gotten E10s. Even the ''extremely'' bleak ''[[NintendoWars Advance Wars: Days Of Ruin]]'' only got an E10. One scene probably won't be enough to raise the rating from an E, especially in light of the ''Mystery Dungeon'' series, as well as the player being able to [[spoiler: die in timed missions in two of the ''Ranger'' games.]]

* When you're about to fight Black/White Kyurem, Ghetsis says that "his cane emits signals that disrupt the function of all Poké Balls!" If that's the case, then how can you battle Kyurem and Him. I his cane does block the functions, then how do they open to release the pokemon?

** Two buns that end with a tail? [[DevilHunterYohko Reminds me of this]]. I'm more interested in knowing how her shoes work.
