I really like White Forest, I like how the pokemon change based on what trainers you've brought. It made me think. This is kinda like being the mayor of the town and deciding who lives. In that regard, it's also kinda like animal crossing. It's a good use of the features but not implemented in the best way. The mapping is really grid-like and boring, the viewpoint is way too zoomed out, and there's not enough buildings or rewards. There is so much more they could do with it!

They really could do some kind of building mechanics with it...(I love stuff like that)
For example, you could have a list of buildings you can build. You could build a small pokemon center, and invite a nurse joy along to it. Or maybe you could build your own (non-league) gym! You could then have someone run the gym with a team you select. You could set up the gym puzzle like the underground traps in DPP. You should be able to invite trainers from all over the region to join too, and then when a friend visits they should be able to battle all the trainers in your town and use all the features. As your town improves, random npcs would join and important characters could visit! Maybe I'm getting too ahead of myself...they have done something similar though to be honest. It would really add a bit more playability to the game once you've beaten it though. You could get little achievements like a gold statue of yourself if you caught all the pokemon. And of course, it should also connect with your friends online. Other rpg's have done this so it's not such a far cry.

Regarding Entralink, I like the missions but they are kinda repetitive. Once you complete a mission it also kicks you out and you have to reconnect. In 2 of the 6 missions, you turn into a pokemon! I have never experienced walking around as a pokemon in the games before...I wa a machop, then a geodude, then a meowth, and also a sandshrew! When I connected to my friend, he could see the little pokemon walking around - Awesome! They could do so much more to this...You should be able to select ANY pokemon you want to play as. They should let you explore the whole region too, and leave items wherever you like. It would be cool if 4 players could play together too and obviously again online. In another mission, you play as nurse joy and cure your friend whilst he's battling. It would be awesome to have some more nurse Joy missions! For example: maybe team plasma is attacking a pokemon center, and you have to help defend it with a team of happiny, chansey, blissey and audino level 40 or something.

As you might know, Entralink is looking a bit different in the new BW2 region map, and Black City/White Forest is hidden under the ice...Hopefully this means they'll be making improvements! I can't wait to see what they've done. Festival Missions and Join Avenue seem kinda similar so I'll be excited to see what those hold too.

I'm importing the japanese versions of BW2 (like I always do) so we should know pretty soon!

Yeah I had no idea what the heck it was. People were saying things like you have to rush to beat the game to get people in there and I was like whaaat? too complicated. I think I understand it now...but it is weird.

I heard that too! So i just went through savoring every piece of the game to an empty forest! I don't like to rush through, whats the point in waiting years for a game to come out and only to blow threw it in like less then a day, no fun in that xD; I'll read into it this summer after my resubmission is in!

Also about the gym you could trade gym data to other people over wifi and battle theirs and for every win you get a certain amount of money.
Everything else sounds cool

That's a good idea! Maybe you could even design your own kid of gym badge (kinda like how you can draw a signature) which would be stored somewhere too.

Oh i misspoke. I meant to say get money for every trainer that your gym leader beats so it becomes an investment

I never got to explore the entralink much because no one around me owns Pokemon B/W or a DS, so I never played it much as much as I wanted to :( It sucks because a lot of the features I want to use require other people; and such people don't exist here.

I know. It really sucks how nintendo kinda ignore people who live in places other than Japan where everyone has like a ds. Here in the UK it's like impossbible to find someone else who plays pokemon / has a DS. I wish they had online options to play with friends worldwide. To be honest, I own more than one DS and both the games so I was just playing entralink with my own self haha xD

I hated the Entra link because people would come in and then my people would leave for their town |D

well i am sure they will improve black city and white forrest in BW2... =)
and the multiplayer optiones you mentioned...
i dont think somehing like playing pokemon toghether is possible on the DS...
BUT on the 3DS i can imagine a pokemon game where you play with your friends!
and i am sure they will make either ruby saphire remakes or another continuation of BW (i hope gray with reshiram zekrom and kyurem fused to one pokemon) on the 3DS...
i cant wait till then!!! :la:

Those actually are great suggestions! ^^ Especially customize your own town :) The WhiteForest and BlackCity are not memorable enough and have no reason to be there really >>; adding your suggestions to the mix it will be a great side quest! Let hope :)

:iconcryingplz: I have BW, but it won't let me connect on WPE2! (something like that) I couldn't access any Wifi feature....

These features I mentioned are wireless...so you should still be able to access them if you have a friend playing the games.

Anyway that sucks, have you tried all the options? I have a few different DS's and it doesn't help that the internet system is completely different in all of them...

DS only allows WPA, I think... it's old... And even when I change it to WPA, my internet breaks... :iconangryplz: AT :iconnintendoplz:

nah, you mean the DS only allows WEP. it won't allow WPA or WPA2. the 3DS fixed that, but even playing DS games on a 3DS doesn't work. it's a real bummer :c
