Contrary to the real Number 2, Black and White 2 aren’t doodooes. They’re actually good in my opinion, and improves on pretty much everything from the previous games. Anyhow, now I’m on my way to next Gym, having flattened Burgh’s Drug Shack completely, and I’ve got myself the following team in the Desert Resort, challenging the tough sandstorms.
QUACK the Psyduck, Lv. 23: Scratch, Confusion, Disable, Water Pulse
BAAH the Flaafy, Lv. 23: ThunderShock, Thunder Wave, Strength, Charge
TOXIC the Koffing, Lv. 24: Poison Gas, Tackle, Venoshock, Selfdestruct
As you can see I chose the Fire starter, I’m actually not fond of the Grass type starter in these games, Snivy is alright but the rest are mighty weird. Also I like that you can catch and encounter older Pokémon, though you will encounter not only Woobats in caves, but also Zubats (again) en masse, and not only Patrats galore, but Rattata’s galore too.
Patrat. It’s a way better name than Rattata to describe how pathethic it is. I know, I’m being too mean. But it does sound like “Pathethic Rat”. And that’s why it’s named the romanized form of the Japanese pronouncation of “Fail”, which I reckon should be “Fairu”. And here are the rats of each region (I know, all are not technically rats, but here we go):
