Default Things you dislike about B/W

I've seen a lot of people here talk about what they like in B/W, but what about the things you hate about the games, what don't you like about B/W that dissapoints you or makes you mad?

For me, it's the fact that Zorua and Zoroark are event only and you cannot obtain them at all in game, even from an egg given to you, despite not being legendaries at all, that's the thing I hate the most about B/W. I also dislike the Pokemon Musical, as it is nothing more than a Super Contest without the third part that plays out like the Contests in R/S/E.

What's your least favorite part of B/W?

The games haven't exactly come out yet, so I don't think there is much I can really complain about...

I guess just the fact that you can't trade in Pokemon until you get the National Dex, so I'm stuck without using an Alakazam on my in-game team.

I didn't see the games yet, but I'm currently a bit disappointed that we're not getting any new (pre-)evolutions of existing Pokémon in this generation.

Although that's a pretty big bummer, since we can't use our favorite Pokemon, it's not all bad. We get to start over, in a way, and make new teams with new Pokemon. It'll be like the first time with Pokemon again. :3

Even with a few minor cons in the game, there are a lot of pros to look forward to. However, I have to agree with Masterge77 about Zorua/Zoroark. It's not really fair to tease us with a Pokemon that's exclusive like that. But, then again, it is the Lucario of the 5th generation. We were lucky that we got the Riolu egg in the game... I guess Nintendo is branching out and focusing on those players lucky enough to live in a WiFi hub.

People, I know the games are not out yet, I just want to hear what you dislike about what is revealed about the games so far, not about the fact the game is not released yet.....

They obviouly either assume that everyone on Earth has Wi-Fi, or they think that everyone on Earth lives in major cities like New York or Cleveland and not in small towns or rural areas, which they think are barren wastelands uninhabitable by human beings. I'm going with the former, because only 21% of all Americans and Canadians live in major cities like New York and Cleveland and/or have Wi-Fi, seriously, more than 75% of the people in the United States and Canada live in rural areas (including me), and have NO Wi-Fi connection at all! They just simply do not care about the people who live in the country and only care about those who live in the city.....

Same here. There are a few resturants that claim to have "free WiFi"... but it's a lie! >=( [Found that out during an Animal Crossing fiasco] BTW, where's the missing 4% in your theory?

Ok, 79%, are you happy now!?

Indeed, McDonalds claims to have free Wi-Fi, but the commercials lied to me, my town has two McDonalds, and neither have Wi-Fi, what a bunch of liars they are.....

I'm not mad because it isn't even out. Though there are low points, they don't make me feel I need to be angry for them.

Actually, that's just for DSi's and DSiXL's. If you have a Phat or a Lite lying around and wanna import, you can and will be able to play B/W on them.

I don't like Pokémon Musical. I never liked the contests and I don't think that these musical contests will make any difference. I like the Pokéathlon more, as it was more entertaining. I also have to agree that having Zoroark as an exclusive is not nice at all. It just pisses me off, even if I don't like Zoroark. I also wished to have our Pokémon walking with us like in HG/SS, but oh well... Something I noticed is that I hate almost all the water Pokémon, except for the turtle!

Haters gonna hate.....

I know a lot of people hate the new Pokemon just simply for their design, but you should not hate a Pokemon just simply because of it's design.....

I prefer to put the Gen 5 Pokemon into one of four catergories (with examples of each catergory, in Pokedex order):

Pokemon that are clever and well designed:
Jaroda, Dekenki (yes, I like this one), Miruhoggu, Doryuuzu, Zekrom

Pokemon that are decent, but still good:
Yanappu, Zuruggu, Chillarmy, Denchura, Goruggo

Pokemon that blatantly rip off older Pokemon in terms of design:
Zoroark (Lucario), Mebukijika (Stantler), Emonga (Pachirisu), Mamanbou (Luvdisc), Kibago (Larvitar)

And Pokemon that are utter crap:
Otamaru, Yabakuron, Koaruhii, Baniricchi, Gear

I think that a good third of them are really cool, the rest however.....

So don't hate them just simply for their design, only hate them for what their stats are, or what moves they learn, not their design, as quality is not judged by physical appearance.....

1. Pokabu's evos are fire/fighting. That's three generations IN A ROW with a fire/fighting starter evo.
But I'm not saying the typing's bad. I actually like it. It's just getting really annoying that they keep using it.
2. Gear's evos are just Gear with extra stuff thrown in.
3. The flying legendary trio all have the EXACT SAME POSE, and two of them have the same stats and ability. They could have easily taken out two of them.
4. Zoroark is an event Pokemon. That's FIVE event Pokemon this generation.
5. The place where you find Munna is called the Abandoned Lot of Dreams. Wut.

He's referring to the "theme" Pokemon of the new region that's kind of exclusive and a non-Legendary who got a movie.

Masterge77 probably meant something else. He's not all there. You should see his rant in the chat. Hilarious.

Complaining about the "ice cream" Pokemon, is like complaining about all the food-animal Pokemon. "Don't they eat chicken (Torchic) or burgers (Miltank)?"

And I don't have a problem with Gear, even if it looks like the Digimon. Gear just looks like a Bronzor + Magnemite to me.

If anyone has a problem with the designs, email the creators or something instead of sulking over them. I do know that Spinarak was a fan-designed Pokemon. I'm sure if they're not totally stupid in design (which I think most of them are), they could be used as an official Pokemon.

You know what I really dislike, too? The fact that MANY Pokémon evolve at VERY high levels! Examples: Jiheddo evolves into Sazando (the Dark/Dragon pseudo-legend) at level 64, Gigear evolves into Gigigear at level 49, and Baniricchi evolves into Baibanira (the Ice Cream Pokémon's final stage) at level 47!

Agreed. They really didn't need to make all those Pokemon evolve at such high levels. Just look at these guys:
Spoiler Alert:    


Banipucchi evolves into Baniricchi at level 35, which evolves into Baibanira at level 47.

Kibago evolves into Onondo at level 38, which evolves into Ononokusu at level 48.

Gear evolves into Gigear at level 38, which evolves into Gigigear at level 49.

Komatana evolves into Kirikizan at level 52.

Washibon evoles into Wargle at level 54.

Baruchai evolves into Barujiina at level 54.

Meraruba evolves into Urugamosu at level 59.

Monozu evolves into Jiheddo at level 50, which evolves into Sazando at level 64.


Sazando evolves at level 64! It probably won't even evolve fully until well after the E4.

I like the higher evolution levels, they provide more of a challenge in the game, and allow me to use their pre evolutions for some time before I'm forced to evolve them...

What i don't like so far, is that there are no evolutions to already existing pokemon. EG: Mamanbou is not an evolution. Nothing that needed it, no matter how badly, got an evolution, sure they got dreamworld abilities, but its not the same.

The charachter design is a bit off IMO as well, especially if you notice the trends starting in generation I, Team rocket, was dark, and looked normal, with minor black outfits. Team Aqua and Magma weren't as bad as galactic in there funky outfits, and kind of could be seen as reasonable. Team Galctic looks flat out stupid, with there goofy space suits on, and team plasma looks unreasonable to begin with. The players design is ok, though, as does the professors design. I guess its just an opinion, though. Everything but fact is anyway.

Gear's evoloutions could have been better, and I sort of don't like the fact Zoroark replaces Lucario (Though I really don't mind, because it's an event Pokemon anyways. That and Fighting types pwn Dark types every time. :3) but in my opinion it looks like the best Pokemon game otherwise.

And on the topic of Lucario, this sprite is the most epic sprite I've ever seen in any Pokemon game.


EPIC

Seeing as I don't have B/W yet, I only have ONE complaint.

The fact that I have to wait till the spring of 2011 just to get either game... better start saving up my money....

Gear evolutions.
Combo Breakers (starter male has brown hair, female Professor.)

That's about it. I really love the high level evolutions. Challenges are great.

Mamanbou doesn't evolve from luvdisc and emonga doesn't evolve from pachirisu.
And that the high evolution levels, I wanted to use sazando in the E4 but i'm too lazy to train it to 64 by then.
That's about it.

I don't have a problem with gear, I actually like it and it's evolutions. Pokemon musical seems to be alot better than super contests. Team plasma are (in general) quite cool despite the terrible outfits that the grunts wear.

My one complaint that will be resolved when it comes stateside is that I can't understand anything in Japanese. [/sarcasm]

In reality, some of the transitions and animations appear sorta rough. When entering and exiting a building, for example, it cuts right to the actual place instead of fading in or out (not too big a deal). When I'm playing this on my Lite, some of the 3D rendering lags the game ever so slightly (once again, not too big of a deal). Also, the backsprites could use a little bit of work. In the default camera view, most of the backsprites are very pixely, though they do get better when the camera zooms out to show all of the combatants in a double or triple battle. To fix this, they could have vectorized the sprites for easier zooming (we'll probably see this in Gray). Also, if they could animate all of the trainer sprites in battle, I'd be a very happy man.

Also, even though I'm not sure how the Battle Subway works completely, I'm kinda annoyed that they removed the Battle Frontier. Besides, why not have the entrance to the subways in Hiun City (Grand Central Station, one of the largest subway systems in the world, duh?) and limit it to a post-game thing? That, IMO, would be better.

What disturbed me about B/W was how Monozu evolves into Sazandora at level 64, and Washibon evolves into Wargle at level 54. What the heck?

Another thing that I hate is how there is no Eeveelutions in Isshu. Aww, c'mon! There are 13 Legendaries (2 Legendary groups which make 7, Story Legendaries which make 2, third one may be possible, an Extra Legendary which may be the third Story Legend which is 1, and possible Event Legendaries, which make 3.) in Isshu, but no Eeveelutions?! D:<

Personally, I think Nintendo put way too much Legendaries in B/W and D/P/PT.

They probably didn't add any evolutions to old Pokemon because they said they wanted B/W to have a fresh start for people new and old to Pokemon. They wanted it to be like R/B with completely new Pokemon. No Pre-Evolutions or Evolutions.

Back on topic, I really hate that Zorua and Zororark are Events.
Gear's evolution is just annoying, it got like no changes. All they added was like a machine part and left it with it's original design. .-.
The main thing I hate is that they're not in English yet and I gotta wait til' Spring 2011 to enjoy the best Generation in the series...

Exclamation THIS HAS A PLOT SPOILER.

MAJOR PLOT SPOILER    
I recommend you turn back now    
Seriously: THIS IS A MAJOR SPOILER    
I hate it, when N comes into the picture, right before you battle Adeku.
He comes in, and challenges you; you catch Reshiram/Zekrom and you battle him and you defeat him, and you also defeat that weird guy afterwards.
And you never challenge Adeku afterwards, you have to start all over with the Beginning of the League Challenge.

What i don't like so far, is that there are no evolutions to already existing pokemon. EG: Mamanbou is not an evolution. Nothing that needed it, no matter how badly, got an evolution, sure they got dreamworld abilities, but its not the same.
This sums up my feelings perfectly. Mamanbou was just SCREAMING to be a luvdisc evolution. SCREAMING it. Emonga could have been a pachirisu evolution. It sure looked like it could have. It's a flying squirrel, for Pete's sake!
What angers me the most is the lack of new evolutions for eevee.

One last thing is the TM's. They should have given us truly useful TM's. What's with the weak, gimmicky attacks? I want to see more TM's like Flamethrower or Thunder. Not these piddly moves like incinerate, pluck, and double team. The use of double team is frowned upon! Why have it as a TM?

Although this has been mentioned many times, do not forget that the creators wanted to give all players an equally fresh start this generation. That's why no new Eeveelutions were introduced.

You can't have a list of 95 useful moves as TMs, as that would just be unbalanced. Yes, moves like Double Team are pretty pointless, but every thing in this world has to come with some negatives.
Comments in bold to clarify some stuff for you.

The pokemon, In my Honest and Humble opinion, suck.

I do not hate anything else and do plan on buying the game eventually. (long complicated wall of text required for explanation of the inability to buy it on release day)

Honestly, I thought that the game could have a few more challenging battles. I personally shot threw numerous battles with ease, but I'd hope for a epic trainer of epicness with their Pokemon in the late 90's or higher. Don't get me wrong, I did have a few troubles with a couple of different trainers, but maybe it's just me who wants to put their skills to the ultimate test.

I dislike how in the Elite 4, you get to choose whatever order you fight them. It takes away the challenge of worrying how well you're Pokemon are once you get to the 4rth member and his pseudo legends. Other than that, the only thing that I'm not too fond of are some Pokemon designs. While Sazandra and such are great, creatures like the Poke ball mushroom thing makes it seem like the designers are trying too hard.

For the people who dislike the obvious Kanto parallels: Well, in real life, we have more than one time of cows, right? There isn't just one species. We also have more than one type of squirrel, lots of rodents, you get the point. So, I don't really mind how it seems as if they're just ripping off older generations. Except the Voltorb/Electrode to mushroom thing.

You'll eventually get used to them. Although I prefer to call the starters by their Japanese names, (Which I'll still call them by long after the English versions of the game are out.) the English names will be hated and love. More hated by the people who have gotten used to the Japanese names most likely, but it's just one of those things to debate about like people have done for the last ten years over the previous generations.

Another thing that I've kinda not liked about the games are that they lack the auto-run button on the touch screen!

I hate all the sparkly new HG features that were taken out, that the dapartment store barely has anything to choose from, and that you CAN'T REBATTLE ANY TRAINERS.
Plus, they're running out of ideas and are taking things from the MOTHER series(Compare Surf and Green Train)

Having some useful move tutors would be nice. All we have are Draco Meteor, lame moves for the starers, and two moves that can only be learned by specific legendaries. Kind of a let-down, considering how many tutor moves we had in HG and SS.

Monozu evolves into Jiheddo at level 50, which evolves into Sazando at level 64.


Sazando evolves at level 64! It probably won't even evolve fully until well after the E4.
I agree completely. Nintendo did say something about a better challenge, but knowing the "challenge" is having your Pokemon evolve at high levels ( It might be what challenge they're talking about) is not what kind of challenge we were looking for. Hopefully, this level thing isn't the real challenge

:O In terms of base stats, this is the best generation yet. No Pokemon has a bst under 250, which is a first. At least 15 Pokemon have stats over 130. The Bug-types especially are a lot better than previous generations.

What I don't like is the typing of some Pokemon. Dokkora should have been Fighting/Grass, Dotekkotsu should have been Fighting/Steel, Roopushin should have been Fighting/Rock, Chobomaki should have been Bug/Steel, Desumasu & Desukaan should have been Ghost/Steel, etc.

Bump?

I've recently discovered what I hate the most about Pokémon Black and White - the horrible Wi-Fi battles!

Firstly, there's no 6 vs. 6 option anymore. You can only have a maximum of three Pokémon in a single battle, leaving many strategies broken. On top of that, the elevation system is corrupt: if your Pokemon are under level 50, they will remain at their respective levels. If, however, they are above 50, they will be automatically elevated to level 50. That means either the battles will be unfair, or every person has to level up their Pokémon to level 50 at least.

Although Pokémon Black and White are the best Pokémon games ever in my opinion, the Wi-Fi battles are truly disappointing. If it wasn't for this, there would only be minor flaws which barely stand out when compared to the brilliance of the games.

This has nothing to do with the games - it's either because the servers in Japan are down (probably due to the recent crisis) or there are too many people online at once.

The Wi-Fi in this game is extremely dissapointing. They need more options for battles. The options they have now suck horribly.

Also, my only gripe with the in-game plot is how straightforward Unova is. It's a big circle, basically. Go through one route, you're to the next city. That takes away a bit from the "exploration" factor imo. Just to compare.

Black/White may be the best games yet, but there's always a cloud to a silver lining. My biggest complaint is just some of the designs. Pokemon like Cottonee and the female Unfezant just look plain awkward, some even horrible. another complaint, like many others have, is just that ZORUA AND ZOROARK ARE EVENT-EXCLUSIVE. I was forced to trade my friend's Victini (which he let me keep) just to get a lvl 1 Zorua.

What I dislike, extremely, is that they gave the Pokemon Japanese-like names, and names that are very laughable.

And I agree with you, I hate that Zoroark is event-only, since it is so popular it is almost unfair. I mean, events only happen once in a while, and when it's a Pokemon THIS much liked, it's almost 'mean', you know?

Here's some stuff I dislike:
  • Finally, after all these years of the games taking place in Japan, they decided this time around to randomly give a bunch of people Japanese names. In the only region in the main series yet to not take place in Japan.
  • The fact that we have THIRTEEN LEGENDARIES and SIX EVENT EXCLUSIVES!
  • The gym leaders/N/Ghetsis are too easy.
  • You never battle 6 of the sages.

I started disliking one thing: you can't re-challenge gym leaders. Considering they had a major role in the story itself, it would have been much better if we could re-battle them again.

I don't really understand why so many people have problems with Zorua and Zoroark being event-only: You had so many chances to get them, what with the Gamestop events for a whole month and then the (worldwide) Wi-Fi events for a whole month. If you complain that you have no Wi-Fi, I'm sure there are plenty of hotspots within a 10-minute drive of your house. Plus, they're breedable, I'm sure your friend can get you one really quickly if you're that desperate.

I've gotten 5 badges so so far I've only been dissapionted in 2 things.

1 Clay was way to easy to beat

2 The region is to strait foward. It's to simple. To navigate the region you go up then you go clockwise. woo.

Other than that its great though.

There's one fishing rod and you get it after you defeat the Elite 4 for the first time.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES A FREAKING REGIGIGAS KO'D MY ROTATION TEAM
Regigigas isn't an event legendary Pokemon thus it isn't banned by VGC, and due to the moderate difficulty in getting Slow Start to work properly it's not banned from OU Smogon tiers.

Heatran is also legal in Smogonite metagame, and things like Kyogre/Groudon/Dialga/Palkia/etc. are legal in VGC. The Flat Battle mode operates by VGC clauses.

I'm saying you shouldn't complain about playing in a perfectly legal and established tier scale system if you don't know how to play in it. :V

Uhhhhhhno.

The point I was trying to make is, your problem is not with the game developers but with the organizers of professional gaming tiers. Thus it's not something you should be claiming to be a problem with the games.

A few complaints having been through the entire game now:

A slightly unfair jump in levels for trainers. This is fine later on after you've explored all of the Unova region, but I hate this trend since HG/SS of jumping the levels to 50-60 or higher when you've just beaten the E4.

Oh, and I miss the days where the E4 stayed at their levels and you could challenge them again at that level. Sure, it's a bit too easy, but I wish you could have better control over their difficulty, especially when training lower level Pokes (instead of Lucky Egg spamming with Audino). 40-50 is hard to level in combat against trainers (screw Exp. Share; I wanna fight).

The sprites really are a little ugly from the trainer pov. I mean come on, it shouldn't be so pixelated for the level of graphics. It still looks good in general, but the pixels always took me out of the experience a little compared to previous games.

The touchscreen's lack of usefulness. It downgraded to D/P functionality AND it lost the Pokewatch. I can't EV train as easily or keep track of eggs easily. The C-Gear seems a waste of space (should have been a Pokewatch function).

Clunky item system. Getting better with each gen., but it still needs more pockets to sort "equipped" items with "adventure" items for efficiency. It's hard finding my Max Repels when I have to sort through everything. Just give me a "search" function already.

Animations are still pretty simple in regards to attacks (some attacks look really weird like Dig). I expect more in the next generation obviously on the 3DS, but I was hoping for more this gen. Still, whatever PBR2 does will make up for it I hope.

I like most Pokes, but like others have said, poor sprites or lack of more evos was a bummer. Come on! Farfetch'd and Delibird are due an evo. Oh, and Absol for sure (even just a pre-evo; remember when those were cool).

And as a minor spoiler for after the game (hint hint, look away now if you don't wanna see), not knowing more about Ghetis and N. I have a feeling N will have more importance in future games (just a feeling), but what we found out from the Sages after the game was a bit disappointing (just that he's out there). N was set up to be really important so I hope we hear more about him and his journey with your opposing legendary.

Spoiler over.

That ought to do it for me for the most part. Nit-picking would be pointless (and even then I did a little already). Keep in mind, I still racked up 100+ hours on it.

FFFFFF THIS SO MUCH. They ate me alive man. ._.

Share; I wanna fight).

I spent a few days levelgrinding in Giant Chasm preparing for the E4 redux so I see where you're coming from. However I'd like to point out that the E4 have been rising in level for the second challenge since 3rd gen.

The sprites really are a little ugly from the trainer pov. I mean come on, it shouldn't be so pixelated for the level of graphics. It still looks good in general, but the pixels always took me out of the experience a little compared to previous games.

In my review for the VR Newsletter I did address this. I didn't like the touch screen at all this gen.

Clunky item system. Getting better with each gen., but it still needs more pockets to sort "equipped" items with "adventure" items for efficiency. It's hard finding my Max Repels when I have to sort through everything. Just give me a "search" function already.

A search function would be great. I do however like that Y registers up to 25 items now.

I agree with most of this and disagree where mentioned.

I understand your point, but in general, I think that their decision to increase the strength of the trainers, and especially the Elite Four, is an excellent idea. I have been complaining about the Elite Four in Emerald, Diamond, Platinum and HeartGold for being easy. Not too easy, but not really hard. The only Elite Four that was a challenge was the one in Fire Red. It was too hard. For the first time since then, White has shown some strong trainers that almost knocked me out, while Cynthia already defeated me. I rather find this great. I hate to see myself defeating trainers easily and going through the game like I am the strongest of all. Seeing such a challenge in the game is rather interesting. I think it was made for the sake of those old fans who want extra challenge.

Not enough grinding required for competitive battle; Real men(and women?) prefer to grind their pokemon up to level 100 1 exp at a time. Needless to say, not many real men do competitive battle.

Lack of VS Seeker. Rebattling trainers, especially the post-League ones, would make leveling a ton nicer. Lucky Eggs and high-level wild pokemon are nice, but you can't beat the higher XP and cash reward you get from a good trainer or two.

...Or six. I'm looking at you, Miles.

Horrible Wi-Fi battling system is all I can think of...

The removal of set level battles not only makes arranging fair battles harder, but also makes testing the IVs of freshly hatched Pokemon far more of a hassle. There is also the issue of the Battle Subway, and how you can't battle with someone over Wi-Fi, you can only battle complete strangers' teams over Wi-Fi.

Go to the third woman from the right at the second floor of any Poke Center.

Oh God how I dislike the Wi-Fi battling system in these games. Completely ransacking set leveled battles makes finding "fair" matches a little difficult, basically all what Ala said.
To add also, Pokemon really needs some more black people. It's not a necessity but the stereo-typical basketball players just don't cut it.

I hate the Dream World
I tried it out yesterday, I seriously don't see what the big deal is.
And the 24 hour waiting period or whatever, it's like the Pal Park all over again.

I hate how the Dream World is so slow! It took such a long time for the Pokémon to tuck in, and now it is taking a lot of time for it to start dreaming! :@

To prevent massive lag on the Global Link servers, you're limited to an hour of playtime and a 24 hour period of rest.

This one I've heard is different for everyone. For me it only took a few minutes or so for it to begin dreaming/tucking it in/waking it up.

It's either because you're:

1. 12 and what is this
2. not checking your Spam/Junk filters
3. you used the wrong email address
4. overzealous spam has completely DESTROYED YOUR EMAIL. (this one's a joke)
