Alright everyone, I took a day break (for the most part) from writing on the Black 2 / White 2 Walkthrough and instead focused on something that was in need of some major updating. Yeah, that's right...
I've updated the Black 2 and White 2 Pokedex! Why hasn't this been updated until now? Well, I spent over 40 hours last week handling all of the video stuff (uploading my entire Black 2 playthrough) as well as a good 20 to 30 (possibly more) writing in the walkthrough. I've been very busy, but I said to myself, "Monday, I'm gonna get this fixed," which is great, since I've made enough progress on each of those other tasks.
What's been fixed and updated? Here's a quick list:
Added the mini icons for the new forms.
Fixed image problems with the new/old forms and also added shiny sprites for all new forms now
Fixed the whole Unova Dex # issue for good. Stupid Victini and its #000 throwing me off.
Changed the URL structure from /pokedex/black2_white2/ to /black2_white2/pokedex/. Why on earth did I even change it in the first place? I think I was looking long-term for having multiple Pokedexes, but eh, this way is nicer anyway.
ADDED MOVE TUTOR MOVES! Yes, finally. It's about time. Not only that, but in the Pokedex page itself, you'll see how many of which kind of shard you need in order to teach the move, and if you hover over it, it'll tell you where you need to go to learn it. So much more convenient than some messy, unorganized list, especially since the tutors are all over Unova now!
Also added TM moves for new forms.
Updated the table rows if a move is only available in Black 2 / White 2 or vice versa so now it shows a cool button. It's a lot less obtrusive, but still very noticeable.
Showing Black / White moves now in the Black 2 / White 2 Pokedex pages, because it is helpful to see what's changed.
Fixed the Held Item problem so now it should be showing the proper Held Items.
Sorting should work better now, I think.
Added alternate forms in the main Pokedex list page and they can be sorted by their stats and stuff.
Also updated the Movedex to show Black 2 / White 2 moves as well. It now links to the Black 2 / White 2 Pokedex if you click a name in there, but since it shows information relevant to the original Black / White, it should be ok.
Brought back the Pokedex Info section, although it still just has the BW1 data and probably doesn't have anything useful for the new forms yet.
Still need to add locations, but I have all of the data for it and just need to play through the game again to figure out what goes where. Should have this up in a couple of weeks.
Yeah, as you can see, I've been pretty darn busy, haha. But hopefully this should make for a much, much nicer experience for you while playing through the game! And if you don't have your copy yet, know that it'll be there for whenever you do get it.
Anyway, that's all for now. Enjoy the new update, and I look forward to adding more to the walkthrough tomorrow!
The good news is I've gotten a list of what all of the internal location names and stuff are, so I'm pretty much good to go with getting them up, oh, tomorrow or so. I won't have any of the special encounters up just yet, but at least finding them in the wild is a start.
