The Elite Four stay the same in Black 2 and White 2. Marshal uses Fighting-type Pokemon, so Flying-types and Psychic-types are recommended (or if you have Pokemon that use Flying-type or Psychic-type attacks). If you’re challenging the Elite Four in order, Grimsely’s room is the bottom room on the right side. The inside has changed slightly, but I’ll spare you the details and make you find out for yourself. He has 4 teams: 2 for Normal mode and 2 for Challenge mode. The two battles are the first battle (pre-National Dex) and the rematch (post-National Dex).

Recently coming out of the 2012 VGCS Winter Battle tournament hosted by Nintendo, I can say that my passion for the competitive battling scene has been re-ignited once again. Being able to create a team in-game and battle with it on a professional level against others, as well as having fun and friendly battles in the same tournament was an idea that I enjoyed. It was exciting when my friend and I managed to actually find each other and have a battle for not only once, but twice!
 
Having battled competitively both in-game and on simulators (Pok√©mon Online and Pok√©mon Showdown!), and due to the lack of articles on PE2K covering the competitive battling scene, I had the idea to introduce my own coverage on competitive battling with my thoughts and opinions on the regular “metagame”. What I am going to cover include the most successful teams, the Pok√©mon you will always see, and common strategies. I am covering these for a reason: they work.

Joystiq Writer Kat Bailey believes that the World Tournament feature found in Pokemon Black & White 2 is a great addition to the Pokemon saga.

Gym leaders serve all sorts of different purposes. In the fiction, they are sort of like the town sheriff, serving as both a pillar of the community and a bulwark against troublesome villains like Team Plasma. Frequently, they help to advance the story in some way by helping the player solve a problem.

There are now 48 leaders; and remarkably, almost all of them are in the new Pokemon Black 2 and White 2. That includes Brock, and psychic Sabrina, and the dragon trainer Clair from Gold and Silver, along with even the lesser-known trainers from Ruby and Sapphire. They all come bearing signature Pokemon from their regions, plus a few challenges, and some can be quite difficult to beat depending on your party composition.

For fans, every single battle brings memories crashing back, not the least because each battle with a leader features a remixed variant of their original theme.

I remember fighting Clair at 3 a.m. while working security at a university hospital. The Sinnoh boss music from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl bring me back to the hundreds of hours I spent raising Pokemon while living in Japan. For that reason, and many others, the Pokemon World Tournament is already one of my favorite Pokemon modes ever.

After years of kind of nibbling around at the corners, it feels as if Game Freak is finally acknowledging that fifteen years and five generations of games has left a lot of people with strong memories of days monster training past, and that spark has been enough to jump-start my appreciation for the series after a long hiatus.

I’ve gotta say ‚Äď it’s good to be back.

In this world, there are no second chances. When a Pokémon is brought to its knees, getting back up is impossible. Making things harder yet, only the first wild Pokémon encountered in each unique area may be added to the team. Welcome to Nuzlocke.

This type of journey, one of many risks and dangers, awaits the heroine Spinel.

However, CM (also known as Crystal Momoyia) regales the young trainer’s experiences through the region of Unova in a light and humorous fashion. This approach to her Black 2 Nuzlocke is highly amusing and entertaining. If you don’t mind spoilers and want a laugh, it is worth checking out!

Spinel has been fortunate so far… but will her luck hold out?

The Nuzlocke adventure can be found following this link!
