ポケモン世界へようこそ

The fedex man dropped off my copies of Pokémon black and white 2 bright and early this morning. I’ll be playing White 2, and relinquishing control of Black 2 to my husband. I started with White for the original game and will continue along that path.

Be forewarned, there are spoilers ahead! I’m going to write a mini walkthrough…so if you don’t want to know what happens in the game, don’t read. But, since my Japanese is limited, I will likely miss a bunch of stuff if it makes you feel any safer reading. 😛 Oh, and hover over the Japanese words for the romaji reading of them and/or the english translation.

ヒオウギシティ

The game started off much like original. アララギ博士 welcomes you to the world and asks if you are a boy or girl. I chose the female protaganist, named her りんこ, left my rival’s name at default and launched into the story.

Be on the lookout for the professor’s assistant wearing a big ass hat!

The first person you see interestingly enough isn’t the main character, but his/her mother receiving a call from the professor. Apparently ベル was on her way to your hometown of ヒオウギシティ to meet you. You need to go find her because presumably she’s gotten lost. Don’t worry, you’ll recognize her, according to the professor, by her large hat.

Before you leave, Mom gives you a livecaster. But sadly no running shoes just yet. Soooooo slooooow. As you begin your search you run into your rival and his little sister. His sister says she has something for you later and runs off, but your rival stays to assist in the search. ベル hasn’t gone too far and you can’t stray out of the city.

kusahebi, my starter’s nickname, is not very original it means grass snake. Just like me to get a blurry pic of an important battle.

After you talk to ベル the first time, I would save if you’re planning on checking the nature of your intended starter pokémon. I reset a few times and chose a timid ツタージャ. I kind of wish we got different starters to choose from, but for nostalgia’s sake I picked the same starter as my original BW game. Once you’ve gotten your partner pokémon you receive the 図鑑. Get ready to fight. Like a good rival, yours will challenge you to a battle.

After he goes off in a huff ベル shows you around the Pokémon Center. Nothing new there. But once outside you meet your mom who thankfully has brought you some running shoes. And ライバルの妹. Apparently the thing she had for you is the Town Map. And of course you have one to deliver to your rival, Now where could he be…

19番道路

Wild Pokémon

  • チョロネコ – purrloin
  • ミネズミ – patrat

ベル whisks you off to route 19 to teach you how to capture wild pokémon. I bet snivy and I could show her a thing or two about catching them, but to be polite listen to what she has to say.

I didn’t really stick around to see what else might be lurking in the grass. So, the lists of wild pokémon are most likely incomplete.

Hey, it’s Adler!

Along the way to サンギタウン you run into the champion from last game, アデカ. I don’t know why he standing on the cliff staring at people, but it seems (and here my limited vocabulary fails me) that he wants to teach you something about Pokémon. However, you’re on a mission to deliver the Town Map to your rival and you won’t be deterred.

アデカ points you in the direction of said rival, and you’re off again.

サンギタウン

Who knew town was so close? And thank god the Pokémon center is strategically positioned right at its entrance. There’s not much else here except an old (broken?) clock. And to the north アデカ’s training area.

20番道路

Wild Pokémon

  • チョロネコ – purrloin
  • ミネズミ – patrat
  • ヒマナッツ – sunkern
  • クルミル – sewaddle
  • ノコッチ – dunsparce (special?)
  • マメパト – pidove (dark grass)
  • フシデ – venipede (dark grass)
  • タブンネ – audino (shaking grass)

So off you go, map in hand. You might want to go buy a few potions before you go because there are a few trainers and some wild pokémon. You can’t go off to the right of the mountain man until you have a gym badge, so to find your rival follow the path and turn left, cross the bridge and then head north.

サンギ牧場

Wild Pokémon

  • ヨーテリー – lillipup
  • メリープ – mareep
  • コダック – psyduck
  • ミネズミ – patrat
  • マメパト – pidove
  • ルリリ – azurill
  • リオル – riolu
  • ノコッチ – dunsparce (special?)
  • タブンネ – audino (shaking grass)

The farm’s owner and his wife, short one herdier.

What is this strange pastoral place in the boonies? A farm? Ok. Sure. Here you’ll find your missing rival…and the owners of the farm who seem to have lost their beloved ハーデリア. Before you can say no, your rival has offered up your services in finding the lost dog. The wild pokémon on the farm are a bit more interesting: I ran into wild mareep and azurill. There are also trainers, and hay bales, and…プラズマ団 cornering the lost dog! Before he runs off the team plasma member gives you TM21 やつあたり—frustration. I’m not sure why…I had a bit of trouble following his conversation.

Back in サンギタウン

After that excitement, return to アデク. You might want to heal first. He’ll have you fight a couple of battles. Apparently these battles serve to teach you about the importance of type—at least that’s what I gleaned.

Outside, someeone else will be waiting for you. Sheesh so many people so few pokémon captured. This guy gives you the メダルボックス. I had to investigate this. It seems that Pokémon has succumbed to achievements—as if catching over 600 Pokémon wasn’t enough of a task. Whenever you get a new medal he’ll be waiting to give it to you inside the Pokécenter on the left side of the counter. He keeps telling you to get to 50 medals. I’m sure I will, but not for a while.

And now I’m leveling for the upcoming gym battle. More to come!
