    - I saw professor Juniper and Bianca at Lacunosa town and we visited a house where an old lady talked about the legend of Lacunosa town and the Giant Chasm. I then left and shopped.
    - I finished buying supplies and visited a few cottages before setting off to Opelucid city via Route 12. But first I saw my rival who mentioned Team Plasma, then Zinzolin appeared. ^^;
    - I defeated Zinzolin and healed my team and went through Route 12. I went on a catching spree too, then I crossed the meadow and beat trainers and soon I arrived at the Village Bridge.

    Today, I played White 2 again and returned to the World Tournament. I decided to enter the Rental Tournament since I don't do that one too often. First, I tried the Triple Battle style and took all six rental Pokemon offered. My team included Jellicent, Servine, and Liepard. The first trainer was really easy, but the next two were quite difficult. During the second battle, I got down to just Jellicent while the opponent still had 4 Pokemon remaining, but Jellicent somehow pulled through and won for me. The final battle was similar, with Jellicent being my final Pokemon, but that time Jellicent couldn't win and so I lost.

    Next, I tried again and chose Double Battles. I picked 4 rental Pokemon, with Pansage and Palpitoad as my leads. This time, all three battles were pretty easy for me. I didn't have to rely on my other two Pokemon at all (can't even remember what they were) and won the tournament no problem.

    My final steps in Unova... for now, at least.

    I haven't been going back as much since I've spent all my time these days in Moon, but today I did the final 2 areas of White Treehollow, and beat Benga. I wasn't very confident in my abilities to do that since the Treehollow can be quite difficult. But I did it! And got me his shiny Dratini as a reward. Scripted shiny, might i add.

    Afterward, I plopped my team in the PC, and migrated everyone I ever caught save for HM slaves to Moon. Not just my team got the treatment, I migrated all the pokemon I got from Curtis, my legendaries, and pokemon with HAs that I caught in Hidden Grottoes.

    ... save for one Overcoat female Gentle Dusk Ball Leavanny. For whatever reason, Bank thought it was illegal, even thought I caught it myself, so it couldn't be migrated. The strangest thing is that I had 3 Leavanny, and the other 2 went through no problem. I've never had a problem like this before with Bank not taking "illegal" pokemon aside from Mew Glitch Mew (and that one was rightful, this one is just strange. I assume Bank is just borked.

    Well, after migrating what I actually can, I discovered that pretty much everyone has piss for IVs. Happens, I guess. Well, let's not let that bother me too much, I'm gonna defend my champion title with my babies from my 2nd run of White 2!
    Full shiny list: x2 x2 ;714; ;778; -Alola

    3 shiny hunted, 16 happened naturally (Apparently the shiny Wingull family loves me)

    - I took my time and explored as much of the Village Bridge area as I could and picked up several things along the way across it, before passing the gate that led to Route 11 next ha ha.
    - At Route 11, I defeated trainers as I sped toward Opelucid city and I also caught a few Pokemon, then suddenly the legendary Virizion jumped off the cliff nearby, which spooked me.
    - I left Virizion alone there for the time being and headed straight into Opelucid city. I saw Iris again and she mentioned Drayden, then I made a quick pit stop at the Pokemon Center. ^^

    Continued with Black today. I decided to go back to Route 14 and finish exploring it. But first, I needed to catch a Pokemon that could learn Waterfall since I discovered none of the Pokemon in my PC could learn it (and it doesn't belong on my Omastar's moveset). So, I went Surfing on R. 14 and soon found a Basculin. After wasting 7-8 balls, it ended up killing itself with recoil from Take Down or Double Edge. Found another one soon after that and managed to catch it after several more balls. Ugh, that was probably the most annoying catch I've had in a while.

    Once I had a Waterfall slave, I climbed the falls on R. 14 and helped Looker arrest the first sage. Then, I fought the remaining trainers before reaching the Abundant Shrine. That place was larger than I'd remembered - I was there for quite a while training and picking up the items scattered around.

    Finally, I returned to Undella Town and healed. Next time, I'll continue on to the next route.

    - I shopped for supplies at the Opelucid Pokemon Center and next I went out to explore the sights and to grab as many items as I could find hee hee. I then quickly went to Route 9.
    - I visited Shopping Mall Nine at Route 9 and spent a while level training in the tall grass nearby also cuz my team was looking kind of mediocre. I caught myself a Garbodor too. :]
    - I returned to Opelucid ciity now and visited Drayden's gym. Clyde gave me a Fresh Water as usual and I began challenging trainers while trying to solve the gym's complicated puzzle.

    I have been playing Black and White a little again. Haven't been doing anything special though. Just been visiting various areas of Unova and getting my daily item from the Treasure Hunter. I also participated in the Pep Quiz at Icirrus City, which I usually don't do. It's a bit silly but quite fun. Anyway, I have been thinking about playing Gen 5 a little bit again. I have had some ideas about creating new teams on my games just for fun, but I haven't made a final decision yet. I'm not really sure if I have time since I need to focus on Gen 7 right now. Will have to think about it for a bit, maybe I'll just take it very easy if I should decide to do it. Going to play Black 2 and White 2 a little next up.

    - I kept attempting to solve the Opelucid city gym's puzzle and at last I reached Drayden's area and challenged him. My Beartic basically swept Drayden's dragon types alone. :]
    - I received the Legend badge when Drayden had lost, then he asked me to visit his home. He spoke about Reshiram and Zekrom when I went there and suddenly we heard rumbling.
    - Team Plasma's Frigate had appeared in the skies above Opelucid city and it shot ice cannons, which froze sections of the city. Next Zinzolin and two Plasma grunts showed up. :[

    Decided to play Black & Black 2 properly, i didn't give the games a real chance when they came out and barely played them. Going back to games without fairy is weird. Started with Black 2 cause?

    Anyway grabbed the basic starting pack Oshawhat, Riolu, Magby and Magnemite. Grabbed a Scraggy when i reached the big city. Spent some time killing audinos, was hoping for Riolu to evolve but forgot it needs to be daylight so i shall stop for the night. Current team is Dewwhat, Magenmite, Scraggy, Magby and Riolu.

    - Zinzolin talked about N, then I had to explore the city and defeat a few Team Plasma members who were hanging around. I had to engage Zinzolin in a battle now, which I won. ^^
    - Zinzolin left and Drayden was about to hand me the DNA Splicers, tho the Shadow Triad soon grabbed them and fled. I chased one down and defeated him, tho he still escaped.
    - I got a call from my rival via the Xtransceiver and I chatted with Cheren as well, who mentioned how the Plasma Frigate was seen near Humilau city. So I set off once again ha ha.

    Finally had time to continue on Black. I left Undella Town, finding myself on Route 13. Most of my playtime today was spent exploring that route. There were quite a few trainers, so I spent a lot of time in battle. Most of the trainers were easy, thankfully, but some could be a little annoying because my Pokemon were lower levelled. I was able to get everyone on my team to level 60+ today, though, so at least I'm catching up.

    Eventually, I reached Lacunosa Town.

    I played through White Version this past week and a half. So nostalgic.

    I managed to beat the main storyline fairly easy, while attempting to level-grind and power-up my main team as much as possible. My team consists of Samurott, Leavanny, Chandelure, Swoobat, Zebstrika, and Scrafty. I managed to give movesets to my team that include 16 of the 17 available types, so I've got excellent coverage for battle!

    After completing the main story, I've begun venturing to the eastern areas of Unova to unlock certain events, trainers, and the National Pokedex. I've begun collecting and capturing Pokemon as I encounter them, to fill up the Unova Dex quickly. So far, I'm at 95 captures. I've managed to capture Cobalion, Thundrus, Kyurem, and Zekrom from the legendary list. I'm getting prepared to go after Virizion and Terrakion as well.

    - So my next destination was Humilau city cuz it was home to Unova's last gym and also Team Plasma was handing out there from what I heard. I had to go through Undella again tho.
    - As I moved on, my rival called me on the Xtransceiver to tell me to take the Marine Tube path to Humilau city. With his sage advice in mind, I passed through the aquarium. ^^;
    - I was now in Humilau city and I saw my rival and he told me that the gym leader wasn't at the gym, which put my gym challenge on hold. Instead I just went on a shopping spree.

    Forgot one thing in my last post. I did a Feeling Check on B/W which I hadn't done on these games before (only done it on B2/W2). And it's not strange why since it is rather difficult to do it alone with 2 games. I did get a rather high score though, as well as some Sweet Hearts. Anyway, after my last post, I played B2/W2 a little as well, didn't really do anything special here either though. Just went to various areas in Unova to look at the scenery and then did some small daily events as well. As for my idea of making new teams on this generation, I think I will have to put it on hold for a while, I need to focus on Gen 7 for now. But I will consider doing it in the future when things have settled down a bit.

    - I had to find gym leader Marlon next after I visited the Pokemon Center to do a bit of shopping and to exchange Pokemon. I didn't have to search for long cuz I found Marlon close by.
    - I spoke with Marlon by a hut to the north and then when he went back to the Humilau gym, I visited the huts as well and got my hands on a few items next hee hee. I then went south. :]
    - I surfed south to Route 21 and defeated trainers there cuz my team needed the experience and then I saw Seaside Cave, tho I just surfed back to Humilau city and didn't explore it yet. ^^
