Default What are your thoughts on Black City/White Forest?

Ugh... why would they put something so lame as Black City and White Forest!?

I understand the need to cause kids to interact, however I'm 23 and it's kinda hard for me to find people near me that will play pokemon with me on a personal level.

I play Xbox games too, which is where my of my IRL friends reside in the gaming world, Nintendo DS is a small few and, unlike in Japan, it's hard to find people into anime and pokemon that I can tolerate =/

I've never even been able to use the Union room or the Underground effectively. Pretty much all these direct link abilities within the games should be able to be used via wi-fi as the pokemon community is still rather small (this forum alone is prob the biggest I've encountered, and by word of mouth is slowly building back up again).

As much as I approve of Pokemon trying to go out there and get kids to come together in the real world instead of online, there should be more options given. I personally don't see much of this happening in the beautiful San Diego County, CA, USA

You're in Cali?
At least you have the occasional event to do this kind of thing.
The most we get in the UK is legendary monsters from GAME.
We haven't had a Con-type event here since Gold/Silver were first released.
And by Con I mean a few tables put together in the middle of our shopping centre for unofficial battling and playing tcg while you collected Celebi.

Back on topic, however;
It's not very useful to a lot of people, but for those who can use it effectively it's not a bad feature at all.

lol, yest his is true... poor UK :(
Don't they have a few things going on in France in stuff at times? I"m not accustom to the ways in EU, however all my friends that have been have told me that inter-country travel is quite simple over there since everything is relatively close. Not so sure how things work coming from the isles of the UK though =/

the problem with our Cons is they have exploded with 'faux-nerds' (apparently being a nerd is 'cool' now, so everyone seems to be finding ways to be a nerd, Twilight and some graphic novels turned into movies have seemed to increase the numbers of 'faux-nerds') the past few years. Thus rendering us actual nerds incapable of attending -.-

I've missed last year's SD Comic-con and I'll be missing this years too due to everything selling out on day 1 of ticket sells.

I wish I lived in New York where they actually have a Pokemon Center -.-

I can easily gain the lost trainers in Black City/White Forest because I have both versions and two accessible DSes, but it's still a huge waste of time.

Ya, it's really a disappointment. The last time I got together with a buncha friends to play some pokemon was about 6th-7th grade.... so about, 12 years ago?
If there was more Pokemon Cons, or events nearby that would be great... the last big thing was the Celebi Event in Los Angeles, but that's 2-3 hours in traffic that I can't care to do... not to mention my car is was on the fritz

Well I guess that really the only way to do it, but for some of us, we like to unlock everything in a given game, but don't have the money to do so =/

Ya, I don't blame you. It just kinda bugged me that I have a giant empty city... 12 as a minimum occupancy? Try ZERO, lol... not even crickets litter the streets lol

It's seriously not a useful feature really. I got there and there were a few stubs of buildings that had no doors and otherwise it was empty.

I don't know how I can figure out who else likes Pokemon around me without broadcasting it over my school.

Besides, there's probably not many. The one friend I do know likes Pokemon has Black anyway so meh.

Where did you get 12? 10 is the maximum and 0 is the minimum.

I love how the people who are always complaining are the ones who can't access something or don't understand how they work.

Even if you can't find people to interact with, they're both handy places. White forest you can find some pokemon you might not be able to find normally, and black city you can buy things like shards, heart scales, and some other assorted goodies, and a little free money.

This.

Forget the connectivity and they become normal areas like anywhere else. That's like me saying the Safari Zone is lame because I can never catch anything. If you can't use them, just do what you can there and keep on moving.

I have to agree with "Bluejello" and "The Pokemaster", just because it's hard for one to interact with others on the DS doesn't mean that it's the same with others.

I have two DS's and both games, but I'm not sure I have the time or the desire to build and maintain two cities. Animal Crossing: Wild World is challenging enough.

Build and maintain? You don't do anything... Black City your buildings "grow" on their own, and you jut battle some people each day and buy some stuff. White Forest you just wait as your trees and grass grow and go catch Pokemon.
