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.

  1. Comet’s Weekly Tip: Once you beat the game, you can go to Undella Town and face Cynthia, the Sinnoh League Champion. She will be there in spring and summer, but you can only battle her in the spring. Face Cynthia while you can! 🙂

    I’m going to get an Netendo 3Ds for Christmas and both Pokemon Black & White. Any gaming tips that might help me out?( like how to get Zekrom,Rishram, & Zora!)

  3. @ awesomeguy: If you’re talking about Undella Town, it’s s city between Lacunosa Toen and White Forest/Black City.

    @ Super mrio glalexy master: Hacks help speed up the game, but you shouldn’t use them for online battling.

    @ reshiramrules: Try catching all the legendaries you haven’t gotten yet, and if you want to fight some tough battles the Elite Four is much harder the second time you challenge it.

  4. I beat the pokemon league 3 times straight , defeated cynthia but still can’t find the seventh sage

      On your C-gear, touch Wireless and then touch “entralink”. Also, you can enter your friend’s game world there and obtain pass powers, like half price on all store items.

    How can I catch Thunderous, the pokemon in the Giant Chasm, Tornadous, the great Landorous,Zoroua, and Zoraork. What is in the Abyssal Ruins, Why do the water torrents happen, are there any pokemon in the Abbyssal ruins, can I catch Reshiram in pokemon white, What happens to N after you defeat him and he flies away, do you ever see N again, and how can I get a Master Ball?

  14. Comet’s Weekly Tip: If you didn’t catch Reshiram/Zekrom the first time you met it in N’s Castle, it’s okay, cause if you didn’t catch Reshiram/Zekrom you will still have a chance at Celestial Tower.

  15. Hey! The first tips the Guru gave are in the May ish!

  16. Y’know what? I’ve got an idea.
    I think that once you have beaten the league 5 times, and got a national dex, you should go to your house, to your room, to find a Lv. 100 Missingno. with an Enigma berry! That’d be awesome! 😀

    Team Plasma are weirdos. Team Galactic actually knew something and had some style!

    Note: Rotom + Lawnmower = Trouble!

  17. rate my team please.
    charizard lv100(transfered from soul silver)
    blastoise lv100(transfered from soul silver)
    serperior lv51
    hydreigon lv65
    zekrom lv52
    rhyperior lv100(transfered from soul silver)
    rate from 1 to 10 please!

    • 9/10. You have to beat the E4 before transfer of regular pre-Gen 5 pokemon, right? If not, then I would give it 8.75/10 because you will get hammered by them, but maybe not, ’cause I haven’t beaten them either. 😦

    rate my team serperior-lvl80 volcarona-lvl81 yang(zecrom)-lvl66 wailord-lvl64 scotty(stoutland)-lvl58 subzero(kyurem)-lvl82.

  20. How do you get Zoura,I already have a Celebi but cant find him.I know hes in Castelia City in the Game Freak Building on the first floor. Please help.Thank you.

    • lugialord114 // June 18, 2011 at 9:38 am // Reply

      i belive you need the national dex first

    • Professor Oak // June 18, 2011 at 10:34 am // Reply

      With Celebi in your party, go up to the boy on the first floor of the game freak building. When you talk to him, we will show you he is Zoura and battle you. Try the Ultra ball on him because you only get one chance to catch him.

    • still in that building 1st floor.leave open space on team.if you see 2 people kissing talk to the guy with blue hair he is zoura

    Professor Oak’s Weekly Tip: If you buy more than 6 lemonades, soda pops, or fresh waters out of a vending machine, you will get 1 free! Plus, if you have a servine and teach it leaf blade, you can defeat the 4th and 5th gym leaders easily. 🙂

    I, like Comet, will start a weekly pokemon tip. Also, if you need any help, please reply with what you need help with.

  24. nevermind just caught kyreum

  25. Comet’s Weekly Tip: You can find a Volcarna in the Relic Castle. Go to the bottom floor of the Relic Castle and you will meet one of the Seven Sages. Go into room north of where you find the Sage. Talk to Volcarna and it will attack.
