Everything We Know About Pokemon: Black and White
Released in March of 2011, Pokemon Black and White are the current generation of dual pokemon games. The games take place in a new region known as Unova, geographically located quite a distance away from the previous gen locations. It's modeled loosely on New York City and the surrounding areas. It contains an astounding 649 pokemon, with 156 of them being new and unique to this generation. Don't worry about finding a flood of old pokemon and missing new ones though: old pokemon can't be found until post-game.
The Unova region also brings with it a number of improvements.
- 92 new moves
- 41 new abilities
- A new Team antagonist known as Team Plasma
- Triple Battles and Rotation Battles
- Dark Grass, where you encounter pokemon in double battles
- Changing weather due to pokemon, and changing seasons
- Constantly-animated pokemon in battle
- Much More!

Playing Hard to Get: Capturing the Legendaries
There are a number of different pokemon in the games, but none are more sought-after than the one-of-a-kind Legendaries. These pokemon are powerful and unique, with only one of each of them showing up per game.

So go ahead and follow these guides, and don't feel bad. We'll give you good tips for catching even the most difficult to obtain pokemon.

Becoming the Best: Raising Your Team
Some pokemon are born better than others. Some of them are simply more powerful. Many of them have a type advantage over others, and will let you plow through a gym with little or no trouble. Others, however, are the underdogs. The ones less chosen, the ones never captured or simply put in the Box to sit. Others, like the starters, are powerful but are often immediately evolved when they can. What are the advantages to using these underdog pokemon, or keeping your starters from evolving? Well we have a number of guides for you, giving you tips on using certain pokemon. Some, like Victini or Snivy, are common and powerful. Others you might not think to use, like Solosis or Patrat. Maybe after you check out these articles, you'll give them a try.
