Dota 2 Vs Heroes of the Storm Vs League of Legends

This is not something new, you can Google and find a great deal of same topics such as; Dota 2 vs LoL, Dota 2 vs Heroes of the Storm, HoS vs LoL… etc.

But most of the people don’t like reading long paragraphs just to learn a small amount of information… I am among them! I don’t like word salads about such topics so I will cut to the chase and I will try to make it as short and useful as possible.

First, you need to understand that these 3 games are very different from each other despite being in the same genre: MOBA. And these 3 MOBA games are perfectly fun and they are the most popular ones of their genre. And thus, it is so very normal that you love 1 of them much more than other 2. However, it’s not normal to trash talk about other 2 you don’t like as much as your favorite. Don’t do it! You seem like a moron when you do that so stop it for your own good!

Don’t even read paragraphs starting like: “This is the best, that is the worst… “, “Not even worth comparing the answer is clear… “, “This is just a copy of that… “… etc. Just run away from stupid content, your brain deserves it!

Now here, I will try to share my and only my own thoughts with you.

Features of Dota 2:

*All heroes are unlocked

Thank you for this Valve! This is really good, I hate the way other companies sell heroes. Yes, we don’t have to spend our real money but, in this case, we have to spend hours of hours gameplay and spend a great deal of in-game currency to unlock a hero to play. Dota 2 lets us play all the available heroes at no cost, that is a big plus. Don’t forget, you can still support buying awesome skins.

*Rewarding/Punishing

When compared to LoL and HoS, Dota 2 is more punishing when you feed your enemies or vice versa; it is more rewarding for your kills. So you can count this however you like; rewarding or punishing. Feeding and getting fed really matter in Dota 2, more than in LoL and HoS. Don’t do stupid mistakes, your enemies may (and probably will) make the most of your stupid mistakes!

*Items are very important

In Dota 2 you have to choose your items really carefully, some items are really hard to get, you have to save a good amount of gold without dying, you also have to deal with courier micro controls when you have enough of gold. Most of the usable items almost change your hero’s mechanics and the match! Also, your enemies will do their best to avoid getting killed and you have to farm carefully, it is not easy to buy items, so be sure that you buy the best item according to your budget. Be sure to buy the item you can make the most of.

*Hero selection and meta

I know that you are thinking it is important for LoL and HoS too. Well… Not all of us attend tournaments, not most of us are “Challenger”. I am myself diamond 3 in LoL, 2.5K MMR in Dota 2 and 25 in HoS. I can say that I have never picked calculating “counter-picks” in LoL or HoS, In fact, most of the time I picked what I wanted! But in Dota 2 this situation is crucial even for 2K MMR. If you want to make your winning chance higher, you need to take your enemy team into consideration and have a good pick. There are even times that picking the right role is not enough, you need to pick a specific hero for certain reasons.

Features of League of Legends:

*Clean graphics and animations

You really wouldn’t want to argue this topic with a Dota 2 fan (not a fan but a nerd), but I don’t support any sides here! I am a fan of all 3 games. And yes graphics and animations of LoL is cleaner than Dota 2. If you are a LoL player please try Dota 2 and you will see that cast animations are slow. You will miss lots of last hits until you figure it out! This is same for skills.

*Community problem

No need to hide it from ourselves, we all know that juvenile kids are the majority in the LoL community until you get your way to diamond and get rid of the most of them at last. Although Riot works a lot to make this community better I don’t think it will be as good as Dota 2’s mature community in a near future.

*Not so punishing

As mentioned, we don’t assume we are in a tournament! We assume that we are just average players. So from this point of view LoL is not very punishing. 2 or 3 early game kills doesn’t change anything, it is not that hard to fix it especially with your teammates’ help. It is an advantage for the killer, of course, but not as crucial as it is in Dota 2. And even if you are better than your enemy, you can’t get a huge advantage with early kills like in Dota 2, you just have to keep it.

*Lots of heroes

Riot used to create more heroes/champions once, then they slowed us a bit, but still there are many champions in LoL compared to Dota 2 and HoS. And it will always be like this unless 3 games change their strategy about this. I accept, you can’t play some of them at higher rankings because there are better options, but I think Riot will fix this balance problem in future and hopefully there will be more champions to play in higher rankings

Features of Heroes of the Storm:

*Lots of maps for ranked matches

You know there are several kinds of maps and different game plays in both Dota 2 and LoL. However, HoS is separated from them because there are many maps for RANKED matches. You queue for a match and you get a random map no matter it is a ranked or a normal match, I think this is great and this makes the game very dynamic. Sticking to only one map can be boring, don’t you agree?

*Events are important

While playing HoS, you need to dominate the event area, you don’t have any other chance to win. This is another beautiful feature because believe it or not, that means more team fights than Dota 2 or LoL, even for low ranking matches.

*One for all, all for one

Another feature I love. Like in Dota 2 and LoL, there is not something like “feeding” or “getting fed”, as an individual at least. In Heroes of the Storm, you don’t level up as an individual; everything team members do is a contribution to the team’s experience pot. When it reaches to enough of experience points, all team members level up. Just avoid being far behind of enemy team about levelling, especially getting ultimate. Because, in a team fight, it is a huge difference to have 1 more talent point.

*There are no gold farming, no items and no last hits

Shocking, isn’t it? Blizzard tried something new and it is working quite fine in my opinion. You don’t need to chase last hits. Some of you think this is bad while some of you think this is perfect. Well… I am not a fan of last hit system.

*Hero selection and meta

As long as your team has all needed roles, it will be OK. Don’t forget to consider that some heroes are clearly better than others.

*Different skills and talents

I almost forgot it! In HoS, you are not limited with 4-5 skills given to your champion. You start with all your active and passive skills and this makes the game very fun even at the beginning. Then you choose one of the several upgrades when you level up. All heroes have 2 ultimates and you choose one of you want when you reach required level. This way, you can combine different skills and play the same hero in a several different styles.

Conclusion:

All these 3 games have their own features, advantages and disadvantages. And the truth is while some people consider a feature as an advantage, others may consider it as a disadvantage. Yes, taste comes in all shapes, to each his own.

And I am sorry, I didn’t want to keep this article long, I just hope that you think it was worth reading, though.

Getting Started In League of Legends

Getting started in League of Legends can be a very challenging task. The learning curve is somewhat steep and people online can be very intimidating. Still this should not keep you from experiencing the fun of League of legends. This article will outline the steps to overcome the learning curve in League of Legends and begin owning!

First and foremost you have to GET THE GAME! I know it should go without saying but I figured I might as well cover the whole process. The first step to getting started in League of Legends is to actually download the game. It is available online for free. I have included a link to the signup at the bottom of this article.

Once you have downloaded the game begin familiarizing yourself with the controls. Fortunately they are very simple. Your abilities are bound to q, w, e, and r. To move around right click with your mouse where you want to go. Those are the main controls ion the game since the main focus of the game is moving and casting your abilities. You can also scroll across the map by moving your cursor to the side of the screen and focus the camera on your character by hitting the space bar. If you like the feel of having the camera bound to your character you can auto bind it in the options menu. If you’re a veteran FPS gamer who really likes the feel using a, w, s, d it is very easy to change them to your spell casting buttons which makes it feel very similar to an fps game.

Once you have gotten used to moving around and using your abilities it is time to start experimenting around with different champions. There are 80+ champions to choose from but generally players find a few they really like and practice with them. For now you should try out all the champions that are free and see which ones you really like playing. Some champions are much harder to learn than others but the most important thing is that you really enjoy playing a champion. So just hop in and begin playing the free week champions until you find one that you really like the feel of. Take riot’s difficulty rating for each champion with a grain of salt as well. It is an approximate rating of how hard THEY think the champion is to play and is usually pretty inaccurate. Once again the most important thing is that YOU find the champion enjoyable to play.

Clash of Clans

For those who are fond of interesting games, Clash of Clans is the latest sensation. From combat to defence, this game is designed to test your thinking abilities, planning skills and desire to win. Unlike others, we don’t believe in sharing tricks that will scam the game and make it an easy win for you. Instead, our focus is on sharing tips and techniques that help you to master the game gradually without any foul play. These tricks are extremely easy and can comfortably be included in your daily gaming routine.

First things first, let’s talk about the defence strategies:

-When you create something new in the game, it will be highlighted. All you need to do is remember to join all the highlights together leaving no holes. This will strengthen your defence making it difficult for the enemy to break through.

-Do a little bit of urban planning. Yes! When you are building villages in the Clash of Clans, we would strongly recommend you to use the basics of urban planning in order to build a tightly spaced property. After all, such tightly spaced villages are easier to protect than those spread over a large area, aren’t they?

-Add more weapons to your defence. As you progress in the game, make sure that you add more variety to your collection of weapons. Apart from strengthening your defence, the unique abilities of these weapons can come in very handy when trying to withhold an enemy attack.

Moving on, let’s talk about the attacking part.

Ideally, the attacking strategy depends on your ultimate goal in the game. Ask yourself whether you plan to accumulate gold or elixir. Basis the answer to this question, your attacking strategy will also change at every stage in the game. However, the important thing to remember is to keep upgrading your gold or elixir collection to the maximum. This will surely improve your chances of winning the game. One simple trick that we would suggest is to keep attacking villages that are piling gold or elixir. Each time you secure a victory in such battles, your resourced will also increase along with the collection of gold or elixir.

Placed in the medieval times, this game is an interesting option that can keep you engaged all through the day. Additionally, once you master the tips and techniques of playing better, the fun quotient of the game is also sure to multiply.

How To Play the Pokemon Go Game and When Will It Be Released in Asian Countries Like thePhilippines

Lot’s of Netizens couldn’t wait to experience to travel between the real world and the virtual world of Pokemon, especially here in the Philippines. John Hanke the founder of Niantic, the game developer stated that he does not want to limit the game’s availability. The game was released mostly in the European countries, however they certainly fixed some server issues with the intention of launching this game to approximately 200 countries.

Discover Pokémon in the Real World with Pokémon GO!

The 26 countries in Europe which Pokemon Go was launched, includes: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, and Switzerland. Who knows? because of the vast amount of players locally, I don’t think Philippines will be ignored as well as other Asian countries who has large number of players awaiting this game.

With the company’s determination to disperse the Pokemon GO game globally, it may perhaps possibly be release here in the Philippines before this year will end.

How To Play the Pokemon Go Game?

Pokemon Go is developed on Niantic’s real world gaming platform, it allows players to use real locations and urge them to explore in the actual world to track down Pokemon (the real world will be the setting on this game). As you explore your areas, the game enables you to capture more than a hundred varieties of Pokemon, similar to that of their video game series which they uses real world locations like New York, Paris, and the regions of Japan (Kanto and Hokkaido).

You can seize and capture countless of Pokemon by exploring within your cities, towns and even around the globe. Once your mobile smartphone vibrates as you move around, that’s the signal you are near a Pokemon. As soon as you found a Pokemon, target that Pokemon by aiming on your smartphone’s touchscreen, once you already aiming at it, you can easily catch it by simply throwing a Poké Ball. Be sure to hit it with a Poké Ball or it could possibly escape. At the same time, you should search for PokéStops situated at significant places, like for example: monuments, public art installations, historical markers and other areas or places with similar nature to be able to gather more Poké Balls and other sorts of items.

Account and Customization of Your Pokemon Go Trainer

After creating an account, the player will have to make an avatar and customizes it by choosing a hair style, skin color, eye color, design of its outfit and other additional accessories. Once the user created an avatar, it is shown on the existing location of the player, together with a map showing the existing area. The basic function of the map is that it shows the total quantity of Pokémon gyms and the total count of PokéStops. While the players travel the real world, their customized avatar will also move along the map.

Function of PokéStops

The PokéStops offers items like Pokeballs, eggs, and even potions. It could in fact be geared up with elements known as the “lures” that typically allures Pokemon.

The Purpose of Gyms

The gyms function as a battle locations for “king of the hill” matches which are team-based. It usually found at interactive locations.

Catch More Pokémon and Complete Your Pokédex

Pokédex is considered as the encyclopedia of Pokemon, where the description, height, weight, species type and other information of a certain Pokemon is being listed. As a Trainer, you will progress in levels, once you gained a higher levels, you will be able to capture more powerful Pokemon and add it to your Pokedex to complete it. Additionally, you will gain access to much more powerful items like Great Balls to provide you a more effective hit in catching a Pokemon. In order to move up into advance level, you’ll need to explore and discover more Pokemon.

As the game progress, you’ll discover alternative strategies to get more Pokemon to your Pokédex. In the event that you capture a Pokemon at a sufficient intervals, you’ll get the chance to develop and make one of them to a more stronger Pokemon. If you keep exploring, you would probably come across Pokemon Eggs found at PokeStops, that will hatch when you’re already at a particular range. After they hatched, you might possibly discover Pokemon which you may perhaps have never encounter previously.

Quite a few number of wild Pokemon will just show up in a particular spots close to your geographical area or even around the globe. Like for instance, some water-type Pokemon may likely be seen in the vicinity where it is close to oceans, lakes, rivers, etc… When you are not in your house or when you’re not in your typical location, don’t forget and be aware that you might encounter Pokemon you have never seen before.

In the event that you capture a Pokemon at a sufficient intervals, you’ll get the chance to develop and make one of them to a more stronger Pokemon. This method is incredibly helpful if you are having a difficult time capturing a Pokemon in the wild. As for instance, if your location has substantial numbers of Poliwag, but you couldn’t find any Poliwhirl, you need to capture plenty of Poliwag so that at some point, you can potentially acquire the capability to turn one them into a Poliwhirl.

Become a Member of a Team and Join a Battle

As saying goes, “No Man is an Island”, you need to join a team so that you can challenge other teams and can participate in a battle. By the time you join a particular team, you obtain a potential and is able to designate a Pokemon you captured to an Open Gym locations or you can assign it to a Gym where a Pokemon is assigned by a certain team member. The Gyms can also be found at actual places around the globe which is just the same with PokeStops. Only a single Pokemon can be assigned at a selected Gym. That is why as a team you have to work together in order to make your defense formidable.

If an opponent comes, and claimed a Gym, you’ll be able to challenge this team by using the Pokemon you have captured and overcome the defending Pokemon. You see, team battles are also fun and at the same time challenging and difficult. You can choose what Pokemon will have to face your rival team. Every Pokemon possesses two types of attacks, while fighting, it can also avoid its opponent’s attacks by swiping your touchscreen to either left or right. If luckily your chosen Pokemon wins the battle, the Gym’s status will gradually decreases, and when the Gym’s prestige will be at zero level, that’s the time you or another team member can take over and take control of the Gym by assigning a Pokemon to it.

Now that your team has taken control over the Gym, you and other team members can now increase the Gym’s level status by contending with the defending Pokemon. Not only that, you can train battles as well against your own team to help your Pokemon level up. Once the Gym gains to an advanced level, You or another team member can assign additional Pokemon to fortify its defense. If you like to, you can call your friends to add more teams and challenge the opponent Gym together with your combined team, in order to defeat the more powerful Gyms a lot quicker.

By undertaking a lot of challenges in various categories and complete each mission, you may be able to uncover medals of achievements that will show up in your profile. Challenges such as exploration and capturing of Pokemon. You can get as many medals as you can by trying your very best.

Additional Features: Pokemon GO Plus, Fun Photos and PokéCoins

By introducing the Pokemon GO Plus, the game may possibly hit the world by storm. It is a portable device which enables users to play the game even if their not using their smartphones. This device alerts the player on a certain event of the game via Bluetooth which connects to the user’s smartphone. Like for example, if there is a Pokemon detected by this gadget near the area, the user will be notify through vibration and LED alert. Besides that, this gizmo can execute basic function such as catching a Pokemon by pressing its button.

Other impressive characteristic of Pokemon Go game is its fun photos. You can capture photos at any moment using the in-game camera, especially when you come across a Pokemon in the wild. You can direct this Pokemon into the live scene in accordance to the position of your camera and take a snapshot of it at anytime. You can then save the image and share it whenever you like.

Finally, you can download the game anytime by going to the main website or at Google Playstore with no charge at all. The only charge is when you would like to level up your Pokemon GO experience by purchasing items through PokeCoins, the in-game currency of Pokemon GO of which users will have to spend real money out of their pockets. These PokeCoins may then be trade with enhancements such as extra items and power-ups.

What Is The Pokemon Evolution

Pokemon are different from other creatures in that many of them can spontaneously mutate and acquire new powers. In Pokemon parlance, this is called ‘evolve’ though though of us with an interest in paleontology know that evolution only occurs over a period of thousands or millions of years, while a mutation is something that a living creature is born with- it doesn’t generally happen at a certain stage of life. However, animals do change as they grow older and furthermore in the insect world there is the phenomenon of metamorphosis, which is really what the Pokemon do- they metamorphose.

I don’t know if the latest incantation of Pokemon, Pokemon Black and White, are ‘evolved’ or not, but they sure look as if they are. They have evolved and may be found anywhere they are selling Pokemon goods- in fact they dominate the shelves and any Pokemon fan who wants something new can’t get enough of them. Check out the new Pokemon Black and White plush toys, the stuffed toys and figures, the new Pokemon Black and White Promo cards, and the latest in Pokemon Black and White Zuken and Tomy Figures.

I myself am not familiar with how a Pokemon undergoes evolution, though if your child is a Pokemon fan, I’m sure he is. I would imagine that the Pokemon go somewhere private to do it, but maybe it just happens spontaneously.

I do know that I can spot the evolved Pokemon manifestations on Pokemon charts when quizzed by my son, though I don’t seriously think that’s any great feat. Unfortunately, my interest beyond picking them out wanes; I don’t even know their names or powers, a fact which never ceases to horrify my son. He just doesn’t seem to be able to fathom how anyone cannot spend his or her entire day and night not thinking about Pokemon.

It has managed to sink into my head, vaguely and through shear repetition, that each Pokemon is associated with some natural element like grass or water. It is sometimes said that the Pokemon therefore emerged from the ‘kami,’ or gods, of the Japanese Shinto religion. While that may be true on some level (I’ve heard it was not), it is also true that there is only a single god for one thing in Shinto- rain, for instance, while the Pokemon are grouped.

Actually, and this as far as I’m concerned is a much more accurate reference to the mutation of Pokemon, the Pokemon game was conceived by the children’s (mainly boys) habit of collecting and battling insects. Now while we adults may conceive of that as cruel, it is after all just something boys go through. Anyway, the metamorphosis of insects would explain Pokemon ‘evolution’ better than anything else.

Play Pokemon Games Online

Pokemon is one of the modern-day characters that many kids have come to love. Pokemons are character monsters that kids can use as a pet. But they are not real pets, of course. They are role-playing video games that were created by the Japanese leader in games, Nintendo. Pokemon is very popular, and it is second only to Mario, the best-selling game Nintendo has ever produced. Play Pokemon games through a console, online, or over the internet. Whichever game mode you choose, you are sure to enjoy this adventure game that kids of today prefer.

The Pokemon games come in different types and variations. There are adventure games, Pokemon card games, puzzles, and role playing games as well. The original Nintendo version involves the battle between the different Pokemon characters. Players act as trainers that lead their pets into the battle. The better trainer wins the game.

Pokemon characters have different innate skills and abilities. Their abilities also grow as they gain more experience in their battles. Every battle won adds notches of experience to the Pokemon, which in turn, would allow them to evolve into a stronger and a lot more talented pet.

Play Pokemon online and know how the game progresses. The most popular Pokemon game version is the role playing game, wherein you take on Ash’s role of being the monster’s trainer. Your quest is to become the best Pokemon trainer with the strongest and most disciplined pet in the whole world.

Kids usually play Pokemon through a game console like the Nintendo Game Boy and the much newer Nintendo DS. However, there are many Pokemon games online. These games can be played for free and you can practically learn everything about Pokemon characters through it.

Since most of these games are made out of Flash programming, the games are fully interactive and work very similarly to the original Pokemon game that kids had come to know about. Join the younger generation as you start your quest in finding the rarest Pokemon in the jungle. Play Pokemon by training Pickachu, or any of your favorite Pokemon character, to become the strongest in the entire land. Beat your enemies, more particularly the members of the Team Rocket and their evil mission to use Pokemon to facilitate their wicked plan of taking over the world.

Pickachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle are the most popular Pokemon characters used in the game. There more than a hundred Pokemons in the league. You’re free to collect them all and store them in your Pokedex. It would all depend on the type of game you’re playing. Some games are limited when it comes to the sideshows and focus more on the Pokemon battles.

To play Pokemon online, choose the right game that matches your expertise. Beginners are advised to engage in a relatively simple game that will hone your skills as a trainer. There are more complex games online that would work perfectly to those who have played a similar game before. Adults will find Pokemon games interesting and entertaining. Just check out what makes this game a big hit to the kids these days. Play Pokemon right now and enjoy the game like every kid does.

Pokemon Black and White 101

Coming in the next generation of Pokemon is, Pokemon Black and White. Generation V introduces a multitude of new features to the series, along with a new cast of Pokemon which has yet to be translated. Generation 4 left off with 493, but with the addition of generation 5, there are now a total of 649 different Pokemon!

New features are nice, but to any hard-core Pokemon fan, you know you gotta catch them all! With an additional 156 new Pokemon it’ll take a even longer time to train and evolve every single one of them, train them, and then battle with other players around the world, or at least your neighborhood.

Pokemon Black and White are separated, like all Pokemon game; by the legendary you can get (first started in the 2nd generation with Ho-Oh and Lugia). Owners of Pokemon Black get the all white Reshiram and owners of Pokemon White get the all black Zekrom. Besides that, both versions have specific Pokemon that could only be found in the game (besides trading from older versions).

The game starts like any other Pokemon game; you start at your home town in the continent of Unova, as a rookie Pokemon trainer that’s just starting out. You get 3 starters ranging from a grass, fire, and water type. Each with powerful evolve forms. And you continue your adventure to collect all the badges, beat the elite four, and eventually save the world!

Now enough of that, let’s look at the new features of this game:

New Cosmetic Changes

Besides having new graphical look as you would expect from the latest Pokemon game, you can also see a major difference in battle. Now the whole battle is animated, you can see your Pokemon actually tackle attack the enemy. Now the battle is still turn based, but the new battle graphics is a sight to behold, well to people who actually watch it anyways.

PokeShifter

Just like Pal Park, Time Capsule, and Transfer Machine, this is Generation 5’s ability to allow you to transfer Pokemon from previous versions to your game. Just like with the Pal Park, you are not allowed to have access to it, until you get the national dex, which means you must have seen all the Unova Pokemon at least once. However afterwards, you’re free to use it as you please.

C-Gear

Similar to the Poketch of generation 4, this nifty device shows you the time at the bottom screen of your DS, but the best part is that this is a portable multiplayer device. No longer do you have to go to the Pokemon Center to trade and battle with friends. Also it gives you access to the dream world, where you put a Pokemon to sleep and wonder in a online environment, and interact with other players.

Pokemon Global Link

This is just like the Global Trade Center in the 4th generation. This device allows you to trade Pokemon with other players online, also some new features is that you can have random matches with players all over the world. You can now finally have a way to battle other challengers live that’s not your friends online!

Pokemon Dream World

This is a special place that you can reach by sending your save file online to the official Pokemon Black and White site, allowing you to go and interact with other fellow players. Along with that, here you can catch many Pokemon that can’t normally be found in the Unova region. So you’ll see a lot of trainers who already beat the game here.

Entralink

Access via the C-Gear, you get to literally travel with your friends locally, in a special area, where you can find Pokemon that aren’t originally native to Unova. You and friends can tackle on side quests together, battle, and trade!

Pokemon Musical

This is basically the beauty contest that was first introduced to the game in the 3rd generation. It consists of dressing your Pokemon up, playing mini-games, and then display to the judge the beauty of your Pokemon (with 5 different categories of beauty!), it’s a fun thing to do when you’re going to the elite four, or when you’re done with the game.

Seasons

Introduced in the 2nd generation was time, well 3 generations later we have seasons. The game doesn’t operate with real time though, the seasons get swapped every month, so in a year we’ll cycle around the season 3 times. Certain Pokemons changes with the seasons, and certain locations open up during certain seasons. And as you can imagine, the appearance of the game does change with the season!

Sprite Battle Animation

Like mentioned earlier, the sprites are all fully animated. This means that you can literally see the motion of your Pokemon attacking other Pokemon or being attacked. And not to mention the sprite of the Pokemon also increases, you have a larger sprite of your Pokemon.

Triple Battle

One of the most popular new additions to Pokemon Black and White is triple battle. You might have thought it was crazy having double battle, but now we have triple battle! Just like the name suggests you use 3 Pokemon at the same time. However there are some rules that you should know. The Pokemon in the middle can attack all Pokemon on the other side; however the Pokemon on the sides can’t attack the Pokemon on the far side away from them.

Rotation Battles

This is similar the triple battle, except that you are battling on a rotating platform that allows the player to rotate their Pokemon around, increasing the strategy to the game, as one must predict what their enemy will switch their Pokemon with and strategize against them.

Gyms

It wouldn’t be a Pokemon game if there weren’t any gyms and gym leaders. In this game you see the usual 8 gyms, but a twist is that there are actually 11 gym leaders you can face, how’s that for a new twist to the game? People who have watched Pokemon Best Wishes will see familiar faces!

Elite Four

After you collected all the badges, the next thing you should do is to challenge the elite four, beat them, challenge the champion and then beat the game. However a twist to this game is that you can actually choose to battle with whichever elite four members you want in any order.

Game Exclusive Features

For Pokemon White, trainers get access to White Forest, an area where players can catch even more Pokemon. But what about Pokemon Black? Well Pokemon Black owners get Black City, a city filled with trainers, battles, and items. Truthfully, I think Pokemon Black got ripped off in this case.

So in conclusion you can see that Pokemon Black and White is going to be a large game, that is even bigger then Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. Japanese review sites have given this game full points, and I expect nothing less from this game when it finally comes to America, or any other country!

With 156 new Pokemon, trainers like me and you will have a blast playing the game, catching them all, experience the 4 seasons, and then trade/battle with each other. I know I will be spending a lot of time online battling with friends and random people.
