Pokemon Black and White

Dear Games Guru, I thank you for all your awesome advice with all the other games. I have White and everybody else who has White has Thundarus, Landarus and Kyrem. How do I get them? Thanks!

Games Guru: This might help a bit:

Is there any way to go to any other region?

Games Guru: No, but in Gold and Silver, I think you can go to two regions.

Is there any way to get genesect and melodetta?

Games Guru: Not legally.

Could you please explain to me what meaning Ns room has. It makes no sense.

Games Guru: There’s not much there. But you can get Rare Candy there. And you can transport back to the Center via the third floor – if you’re not ready for the final boss.

I have white and I cannot figure out how to get Thundarus, Landorus and Kyrem. Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Games Guru: Catching them is quite complicated and detailed, so here are some videos to watch:




I heard that if you complete the Unova Pokedex, you can go to the P2 lab and N will give you his Reshiram. Is this true?

Games Guru: As with many Pokemon games, this is a complex process. But you can get Reshiram, at least according to this video:

How do you get shiny pokemon???

Games Guru: These are the very rarest of Pokemon and are really hard to find. Here’s a simple way to find shiny Pokemon — but it takes patience, a ton of patience. When you find the area a Pokemon is in, save the game. Walk around until the Pokemon appears. If it’s not shiny, press L+R+Start+Select. This resets the game. You’ll have to keep doing this until the Shiny One appears – if you have the patience. Someone calculated that finding a shiny is about 1 chance in 8,000.

Dear Games Guru, do you have any other tips?

Games Guru: Here are a few that might help.

Snow Drifts. When winter hits Unova, explore as much as you can. Because of snow piling up, you can walk to aras that are inaccessible during other seasons. You’ll find plenty of new items and Pokemon!

Use TMs Wisely. Technical Machines now have unlimited uses. This can give you a wider spectrum of moves and help you overcome a difficult battle.

Make Friends, Help Friends. Black City and White Forest are the first version-exclusive areas in a Pokemon game. Going into a friend’s Entralink of the opposite version and speaking to the Trainers in their Black City/White Forest will sometimes let you bring that Trainer to your own town. New Trainers cause new items to appear at the shops in Black City or new Pokemon to appear in White Forest.

Striaton City Gym. Before challenging the leader at Striaton City Gym, accept the Pokemon offered to you in the Dream Yard. Upon reaching Castelia City later in the game, head to the first pier to receive a stone from the Scientist to evolve this Pokemon.

Heading to the Top. Enter the Battle Company building and work your way to a battle with the person at the back of the top floor to receive an Exp. Share.

Don’t Stay Off the Grass. Be sure to enter any shaking grass you see. Defeating the hard-to-find Pokemon that appear earns you extra experience points.

Are there any codes? If so, could you give me some?

Games Guru: I don’t have any codes yet. But here’s a good tip: You can get National Dex after defeating the Elite Four. Leave the house after the credits roll. Professor Juniper’s dad will appear to upgrade your Pokedex.

    Hey, sorry i haven’t benn on for a while. My computer crashed but now it’s working. Ask me anything.

    • What pokeball can catch a LV.75 kyurem with red health using a LV.69 samurott?I tried an ultra,timer,and a quick ball.

      • lugialord114 // June 18, 2011 at 4:26 pm //

        i use ultra balls and dusk balls on legendarys. for kyurem, i got it in a ultra ball

      • A master ball always works, but you could use a dusk ball as well, Captain Rex. That’s what I caught it with.

      • Chimchar852 // August 3, 2011 at 2:35 pm //

        I got it in a timer ball after like65 turns

  5. Tip: Go to the very middle of the Giant Chasm and you will be able to battle a very powerful pokemon called Kyrum. It is level 75 and is a dragon and ice type pokemon. I caught it with a dusk ball, so I would bring lot’s of those if I were you.

    Does a White player here have a Reuniclus? If I catch a Gothitelle I’ll trade ya for it.

    • I might have a Reuniclus. I’ll need to check. (I haven’t played the game for a while also.) If I do, I will accept your trade.

    How do you get to Giant Chasm?!There’s a huge strength boulder in the way,and I don’t see a waterfall like at Abundant Shrine.

    • FireTypeRocks, go to the middle of the big grass area past the cavern part of the Chasm to get to Kyurem.
      Sorry I took so long to reply, you may have figuered the puzzle out by now…

    guys please anweser this at opelucid city theres a guy that made this machine tht conects presnt and future or wat ever he said he says he needs a pokemon fromtheres charge please tell me if u know thank u

    • To pokemonfreak:
      What you have to do is find a person who has Pokemon Black. Ask them if they have caught a pokemon that knows the move Charge. If they say yes, than trade a pokemon for it. Then take it to the guy in Opelcuid City and give the pokemon to him. If you do so, tell me what happens,please!!!

        Actually, I’ve done it and the guy gives you a cell battery, which increases your Pokemon’s attack when it’s hit by an electric type move
