Guide to Volt-TurnThanks to Celery (#72) and CrazyWearsPJs (#64) for contributing Volt-Turn is an offensively oriented strategy that emphasizes holding offensive momentum in battle by constantly spamming the opponent with the moves Volt Switch and U-turn.

BW2 is no different; however, the Kami trio (Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus) are not available in BW2. Cobalion - Route 13 Cobalion will jump out, and then stand in the middle of the route, welcoming you to your doom, as the Pokedex description writes, "It worked with its allies to punish people when they hurt Pokémon". With Cobalion out for vengeance, you are forced to catch it or... kill i... Read More

Guide to Hyper Offense Originally written by ShootingStarmie (#73) Offense as a playstyle is easy to learn, but somewhat more difficult to master. Since offensive teams generally do not have the defensive abilities of balanced or stall teams, they rely much more on correctly anticipating the actions of the opponent and maintaining momentum and pressure. This means that offensive teams have a significantly lower margin of error than stall or balanced teams and thus players utilizing offensive teams must ma... Read More

That said and done, let's get started. The Team "There is no 'I' in 'team'". That's certainly true, and to be quite frank, captain obvious. Nevertheless, still true. However, "me" can be spelled out using the letters given. A team should con... Read More

That said, you don't know how to adapt to changes between generations. If you try to play Gen IV right after Gen V, you'll find difficulty trying to use Gen V strategies. What's Different? There's many differences between each generation, so learning a different generation is like relearning Pokemon altogether. What exactly is different between IV ... Read More

Shiny Pokemon Introduced in generation II, shinies are rare alternate colorations of Pokemon. While every Pokemon has a shiny form, differences in the color palettes of shinies and normal Pokemon can range from being incredibly drastic, such as in Kyogre's pink shiny form to the right, or being incredibly subtle, such as in the case with Bibarel's slightly lighter brown shiny form. However, what shinies do have in common is the fact that they are generally incredibly rare. While Gold and Silver (and lat... Read More
