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.

    To get Rayquaza (no cheats), beat everyone on the cruise ship in Castelia City (you should get a lava cookie). Then go to Undella Bay and use Dive in the only dive point there. In the ruins, read all purple signs (it has something to do with the lava cookie). Finally, go to the Celestial Tower and go to the top. Ring the bell 3 times and Rayquaza comes down from the heavens. (Comes at level 70).

  26. my team to beat Clay
    Emboar Lv35
    Munsharna Lv32
    SimisageLv34 (using to defeat Clay)
    I think that Elesa was the easiest! She shouldn;t be a leader. I should:)

    Also i forgot to mention for some reason that my last three are interchangeable. I also have Zebstrika, porygon and a japanese Rhyperior. Quagsire became a HM commander because hes to awesome to be a slave and he knew surf waterfall strength and mud shot. so yeah he dosent count. id like to keep porygon but only the first three arent optional.

  38. What do you do after you beat the elite 4 ten times, you have visited every city, gotten Zoarark, Kyruem, Victini, Reshrim, Zekrom, Volcarona, Zorua, Terrakion, Virizon, The other one of those three, you have woken up the statued Pokemon with Rage Bars, you have discovered the mystery island thing, you have got a National Dex, you have beaten Everyone in the game as the least once, and beat every gym. What do I do now?

  39. Hey Games Gru I’ve beaten Modern WarFare 3: Call of Duty and it only says 50% complete. I heard that you have to find the enemy intelligence. If so were are they and what hacks do yo know?

  40. There are at least 3 legendary Pokemon not known to public I remember 2: Kelbo who helped Coabalion, Virizon, and Terakion the other one I remember is Genesect.

    new pokemon game might ne out in america but is certain to be in japan its callrd pokemon and nobungas ambittion walking is easy to you get to drag your pokemon its sort of like rumble but with samurais in the game

    there is a new pokemon movie named kyuruem and the sacred swordsmen i do not own this i heard from a website say they are going to have a melotta event but there is not a trailer in japan i just say something on youtube that says the pokemon company is making the movie but the trailer is not even out yet i guess

  46. who here besides me has beaten the Elite Four more than 6 times?

  47. Everyone, listen up there is a victini event going on right now until december 31st so how to get victini is to go to the menu before you continue with your game go to the mystery gift and choose nintendo WCF. Then try to get at least one bar on the top right of your screen then it will say that you have one gift then it will ask you if you want to recieve the gift click yes and then wala you got yourself a victini literally that’s the gift so then go top any pokemon center there will be a man in blue who will give you victini

  48. The Legendaries Most People Don’t Care About: Registeel, Regice, Regirock, Azelf, Uxie, Mesprit, Virizion and Terrakion.

  49. There is a 1 in 8182 chance in finding a shiny Pokemon every time yiu see one.There are two ways to up the chances. One is only found in the games Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. It deals with using the Pike Radar. Everytime You use it and find the same Pokemon, the chance gets better of finding a shiny, when using this technique, you will know when you have found a shiny when a grass piece sparkles. The other way will only work with generation 4 and on. If you have a Pokemon from another country(I.e. Japan, Brazil) via the gts, and you breed it with a Pokemon of your country, the odds of the resulting egg being a shiny goes all the way from 1 in 8192 to just over 1 in 1000 ( a MAJOR increase in your chances). I hope this helped, if you have any other Pokemon related questions, feel free to ask!
