Q: What is Unova Link
Unova Link is a version exclusive system of unlocks based around keys.
Challenge Mode will increase the AI, levels and in the case of Gym leaders/E4/Champion add/change Pokemon and movesets. Black 2 exclusive
Assist Mode will lower levels and AI of all trainers. It is White 2 exclusive.
Rock Peak Key: Available from the start in both versions. Allows you to catch Regirock in the Underground Ruins (Post game)
Iron Key: Black 2 exclusive, obtained once Regirock is caught. Allows you to catch Registeel in the Underground Ruins
Iceberg Key: White 2 exclusive, obtained once Regirock is caught. Allows you to catch Regice in the Underground Ruins
Black City/White Forest[*]Black City –Tower Key: Obtained once you’ve gone up enough floors in the Black Skyscraper (Black 2 only)[*]White Forest –Forest Key: Obtained once you’ve gone up enough floors in the White TreeHollow (White 2 only)
Q: Can keys be traded? How?
Keys are “leant” through local IR connection
*YOU CAN NOT GIVE KEYS THROUGH WI-FI CONNECTION*
If you are a Black 2 player and are giving the Challenge, Iceberg, and Black City keys to another player they will merely unlock the options but they would be unable to lend the keys themselves.
Notes: All keys can be toggled on or off at any time once in your possession.
In addition, if you switch to the opposite version’s Black City/White Forest, you will instead fight a strong Veteran Trainer rather than Benga.
*If you start a New Game, you will have to unlock all the options again*
Q: What is Memory Link?
Memory Link allows you to link to your copy of Black 1 or White 1.
Unlike the Key Links, this can be done by either Wireless/IR communications, or through use of the Global Link (have both games registered through your Global Link account and have a Pokemon tucked in your prequel game).
The game’s instruction manual can guide you through this process.
Doing Memory Link allows you to:
-View flashbacks about events happening to characters between BW1 & BW2
-Capture N’s Pokemon
-Receive any Musical Props as well as any of Loblolly’s Dream World furniture
-Have your BW1 character mentioned by your Name
-One-time Post-Game battles with Bianca & Cheren’s final teams from BW1 (based on your BW1 starter)
Note: Memory Link’s features are based on your progress through BW1. If you’ve made it further in BW1 after doing Memory Link, you can redo Memory Link to update BW2.
Q: Can Memory Link work across different regioned versions?
It can also work regardless of which prequel you link it to.
In addition, 1 copy of BW1 can be used any number of copies of BW2, regardless of if it's Black 1 with White 2.
Q: I have met Yancy/Curtis at the Ferris Wheel but I can't call them even at the select areas? Why?
It's partially random chance. There is only a chance that when you're in the proper area will you be able to call Yancy/Curtis.
Just keep going between areas and eventually the option should show up on the XTranciever.
As a reminder, these 15 areas are eligible: http://serebii.net/black2white2/droppeditem.shtml
Q: Do I really need to call them 50 times before trading?!
No! It seems that so long as they start smiling on the (for me, after 30 calls) they will start trading with you.
Can I trade with Yancy/Curtis before beating the Elite 4?
Q: What is Dream Radar?
Dream Radar is a Nintendo 3DS exclusive application that you buy & download from the e-Shop for $2.99 (price will vary based on region).
Using AR, you capture various Pokemon and items to send to any BW2 game in your system.
This is done through “3DS Link.” It will send any items to your bag, and any Pokemon caught straight to your PC. All Pokemon have their Dream Abilities and are “caught” within Dream Balls.
The levels range depend on the amount of badges you have from level 5 to level 40.
