Why is Pokemon Black and White 2 trolling me?

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 26, 2012, 8:38 AM

Ok for Heartgold, I made a commitment to catch ALL the Pokemon, I wanted to follow the original idea of 'Gotta Catch'em all' before Pokemon America dropped that slogan after realising Ash only filled up like 10% of the Pokedex. And thats what happened, I caught all 493 Pokemon and got my certificate. Hours of leveling up, hours of breeding, hours of finding the Pokemon (Including buying previous versions just to get certain Pokemon), hours of looking up what items/stones are needed to get certain evolution, good job me.

Then Pokemon Black and White came out, I kinda half expected there to be a new Pokemon game coming out with new Pokemon anyway, so I wasn't too bothered by completing my dex again for the 5th gen games. Its actually not as bad because instead of trading Pokemon over (Which can take quite a while) this time you can play the slingshot minigame where u shoot your pokeball at 6 pokemon at a time, its a nice little game to make it seem like you are doing more than just moving Pokemon from 4th gen to 5th gen games, but when you play that minigame for the 100th time, you just wanna smash your DS on a wall and scream on top of a car like Michael Jackson in that music video. But eventually I did move all my pokes from Heartgold over to Black, sometimes I had to breed some pokes too as I only had the evolved version and lacking the baby form, but I did it anyway. All I was waiting for was Genesect, Keldeo and Meloetta. Eventually the events started happening and I was able to get those missing pokes one by one. Then guess what? Pokemon Black and White 2 was announced, thats fine, I will just get my complete Pokedex certificate in Black and I will be happy with that, I mean there's no new Pokemon in Black 2 to catch so there's no point in getting a complete dex in that game.. right?

At least thats what I thought until I found out... if you complete your Pokedex in Black and White 2, instead of just getting a useless certificate (I don't see it as useless by the way, I value it a lot), you also get an item called a Shiny Charm, what it does is when you have the item in your bag, the chances of encountering Shiny Pokémon in the wild is increased to 300%, making it a 1 in 2,370.6 chance. If you are using the Masuda Method to breed, it increased it from 1 in 1,365.3 down to 1 in 1024! Holy crap! I really want this item and the only way to do it is to trade all my Pokemon from Black to Black 2, thats right, TRADE, not migrate! So if I have 630 Pokemon I wanna trade over, I need 630 Magikarps......

And the thing about trading is that it takes FOREVER. I don't get why you can't just transfer your Pokemon over quickly... trade 6 at a time maybe? or just make the trade animation faster, I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THE POKEBALL FLYING IN THE AIR ANIMATION IS JUST FOR SHOW, to be honest it only takes a second or two for the system to pick up the info for the Pokemon and process it over to another game making the trade happen. This will take me months to complete! :'U I was so close to getting a certificate on Black and now knowing you can get a Shiny Charm in Black 2, I don't see the point of getting that cert in Black no more! It sucks that I migrated all my Heartgold pokes over to Black already, cos migrating was much faster than trading... This is the worst! The only way Pokemon can troll me more is when I finally got all my pokes over to Black 2, they announce Black and White 3 having an even more awesome item when you complete the dex, like a SUPER SHINY CHARM with the chance of shiny Pokemon being 1 in 5. That would be the day I officially boycott Pokemon. My Pokemon icon will be replaced by a Digimon, Megachu and I will say fairwell (With Pikachu's Goodbye song being sung in the background by Martee Lebow live) and every Pokemon plushie I have will be donated to a homeless person on the street, his new home will be made out of Pokemon plushies.

So the real question is.. will I complete my dex on my Black 2? Well I put up a poll recently and people wants me to do it... so yeah I will do it slowly, I got recommended to trade like 10 per day, so eventually I will have it completed in a few months, thats not a bad idea actually, I will probably do that.

This is why I just limit my self to completing just that regions's Pokedex. XD

I've only ever caught two shiny Pokemon in my life. The first was a Shiny Buizel that I spent hours of work catching (My Pokemon Ranch is full of 300+ of them. ._.') and the shiny Gyarados.

I'm kinda a shiny Pokemon charm, I admit that I unfortunately am not a very dedicated Pokemon player (I didn't even finish black and white) but I have managed to catch 2 shiny in the wild, a shiny zubat from Pokemon soul silver and a shiny minccino from black. Masuda method?

But isn't it easier just a bit, i mean with infrared you can trade every pokemon in you party and Box? And like a bunch of the old pokemon are already in the unova region? I know you want pokemon from the past games but i think it'll save you time :3

Anyways you are really awesome, i did that for pokemon black too but i'm nowhere close to you sir ;3;

You have just described my EXACT situation right this very moment! I died a little when I realised it wouldnt be migrating this time but trading. So far Ive caught and traded just over 2 boxes worth of Patrats and Purrloins..... *weeps*

Also everyone I know with a pokemon games has caught multiple shinies except me.... :iconcryforeverplz:

Still not got meloetta yet though D: Uk sucks!

Well i trade 5 pokemon a day. It's a pain but i guess they did that on purpose so when you get the charm it would be more rewarding.

I'm nearly finished the Unova dex, but national. That might take some time...
