Konichiwa (did I spell that right? Gosh, I hope I didn't say anything offensive :sweatdrop: )!

Ok, so Black and White 2 came out the other day, and unable to resist the urge to try them out, here we are. The only problem, is the game is in Japanese, and I don't speak a word of it. Sooooo, I'm going to clusterf*** my way through this as blind and ignorant as a Garbodor in a beauty salon. Maybe we'll even learn something as we go yay education!

Firstly, some rules are in order:

Rules



WARNING!!
This run may contain spoilers! If you yourself plan on playing these games at any stage and do not wish to know the gym leaders, the general direction of the plot or anything else that's new in these games, LOOK AWAY NOW! I won't necessarily understand what's going on all of the time due to Parkinsons the language barrier, but if you're not OK with knowing anything about these games, please, don't let me ruin the experience for you :wooper:



That being said, this should be an awesome, fun run of an awesome and fun game!

OK, enough incessant talking, let's learn some Japanese!

Part 1: English Mother, do you speak it!?

Go with Snivy. I haven't seen it used in a B2/W2 nuzlocke yet. Plus, Smugleaf is the coolest.

Go with Mijumaru! (Oshawott). Don't worry, most pokemon games are usually fairly easy to play without the language, and my bets are that Black version is probably similarly linear to black 1.

Update #2: Bianca is a whore



Well, despite that Route 20 catch getting OHKO'd, I think that was a pretty progressive update! Nobody died, I got some awesome new team members, and my Rival now hates my guts! Yoomtah!

But yes, please help me nickname that last catch! inb4 Riley

Japanese words learnt in this update

Name Riolu Alex :dance:

I just got finished with my second quarter of moonspeak. Unfortunately, I tried playing Black 2 and most of it is nonsense to me. I know probably 500-600 words and the grammar for polite speech, but thats all. I can read every word (although there's a thing at the beginning of the game that prompts you to see if you want to use the Chinese letters that fluent speakers know or the Kanas, which you're playing with; I cant read most of the Chinese "letters", called Kanji), but I have to read it slowly and I still dont understand most of the words and sentences since it's not grammar I'm used to. I am, however, surprised to see how many english expressions they use. The Rival (Hyuu is his default name, although Bulbapedia lists him as Hue) actually says, "retsu go!" (engrish for lets go) when he follows you at the beginning of the game. All this aside, I know some Japanese but not enough to play this game and enjoy it fully myself.

Update #3: Ninjas committing suicide at the Gym!











I'm just going to go hide in the corner for a while. Don't mind me.

EDIT: Why my new computer wants to autocorrect everything in an incorrect manner is beyond me. Most typos from this update are now fixed =P

...why is everyone losing pokes at Cheren?

Uh, sorry 'bout your loss. I've never used Patrat before, apologies. And for Riolu, I thought that Quick Attack was Chip Away. Then I realized it was a normal type move. I think I'm gonna use the English patch, too, I can't remember all my poke's moves anymore. Plus when it learns something I don't understand... :sweatdrop:

Update #4: Heavy Metal + Music = Victory!


Well, that couldn't have gone better! There were lots of amazing options available in that industrial area - Growlithe, Magby, Audino, Koffing, Magnemite, Pidove (Patrat =( ). I'm happy with what I got though - it was a huge help with the gym (that typing!)! All I can say is thank goodness those Koffing were too young to be boomfags yet - I think we'd have managed, but still, better to be safe than sorry!

Going to update the English patch before the next update. Yeah, I know, the run is called 'Learning Japanese', but I need to know what Pokemon I'm fighting against! =P

Next is Burgh. Hopefully we'll get a few more catches before then - 2 gyms in and still only a party of 3 (max of 5)? It just doesn't feel right!
