Pokémon Black 2 and White 2
|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|
Developer: Game Freak
Check if the 3D models from the previous games are hidden in the game's files.
Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 are, as you might have surmised, the sequels to Pokémon Black and White, set two years after the first Generation V pair. These games feature a new, less fashion-challenged Team Plasma, a pair of new forms for Kyurem that make it suck much less, and Colress' kick-ass battle theme.
Leftover Key Item Icons
Every Key Item icon Game Freak has made since Generation III is present. Period. Including all the ones that haven't even existed since Generation IV started, including the God Stone.
Leftover Key Items
Most of the Generation IV key items still exist. A handful, like the Lunar Wing and Magma Stone, are used (fun fact: this is the first time the Magma Stone has been used since it was implemented in Diamond and Pearl!), but the vast majority aren't.
And yes, that includes the other unused key items from Diamond and Pearl like the Seal Bag, Red Chain, and Azure Flute.
Leftover Wi-Fi Mode
There is leftover code and a script command (0x15F) from an extra wifi mode that was removed before the game was released. The command begins the same as all other wifi commands, but essentially does nothing. Due to the amount of code left, there is no way of knowing if this command was for debugging or a late-removed feature. However, it is mixed into the middle of the other such wifi-related commands and as such may mean that it was meant for the player.
Whatever it was, it likely belonged to the woman on the right at the top of the stairs in each of the Pokémon Centers.
These games have the same anti-piracy features as Black and White, with the experience issues. However, they have a new and exciting layer of random freezes, too!
Virbank Gym Music
Rerip the songs and put them in .ogg format
In the Japanese version, Roxie, the gym leader, spells out "Dogars", the Japanese name for Koffing. In western versions, she spells out "Pokémon" instead.
Get a better video.
Part of the post-game involves you following a Zoroark through Victory Road, eventually ending up in N's Castle. In the Japanese version, if you leave the cave without following it, it will appear at its original spot but will not move, preventing entry into N's Castle as well as rendering the player unable to capture Zekrom/Reshiram.
This glitch was fixed for all other regions.
Humilau Gym Glitch
I know there's a larger time window in which this can be done. I need to find exactly when you can do this, and how long it lasts for.
After facing Marlon and finishing the events of the Frigate, but before Ghetsis, if you talk to Marlon, one of the text boxes that appears will be completely empty. This bug was rectified in international releases.
Unused Hidden Abilities
Make this section not suck (a table would be nice)
In the Generation V games, it is possible to find Pokémon with special "hidden Abilities", either via the Dream World or Hidden Grottos. However, some Pokémon with hidden Abilities were unable to be found in the Dream World or in Hidden Grottoes, rendering the hidden Abilities unused in normal gameplay.
- Articuno (Snow Cloak)
- Zapdos (Lightningrod)
- Moltres (Flame Body)
- Chikorita (Leaf Guard) / Bayleef (Leaf Guard) / Meganium (Leaf Guard)
- Cyndaquil (Flash Fire) / Quilava (Flash Fire) / Typhlosion (Flash Fire)
- Totodile (Sheer Force) / Croconaw (Sheer Force) / Feraligatr (Sheer Force)
- Raikou (Volt Absorb)
- Entei (Flash Fire)
- Suicune (Water Absorb)
- Regirock (Sturdy)
- Regice (Ice Body)
- Registeel (Light Metal)
- Heatran (Flame Body)
- Snivy (Contrary) / Servine (Contrary) / Serperior (Contrary)
- Tepig (Thick Fat) / Pignite (Thick Fat) / Emboar (Reckless)
- Oshawott (Shell Armor) / Dewott (Shell Armor) / Samurott (Shell Armor)
- Gothita (Shadow Tag)
- Klink (Clear Body)
- Litwick (Shadow Tag) / Lampent (Shadow Tag) / Chandelure (Shadow Tag)
- Rufflet (Hustle)
- Larvesta (Swarm) / Volcarona (Swarm)
Note that Gothita, Klink, and Rufflet's evolutions have hidden Abilities that can be found in-game. However, because these hidden Abilities were only given to males (or, in the case of Klink, genderless Pokémon), obtaining these hidden Abilities through breeding is impossible in the Generation V games.
The new breeding mechanics of the Generation VI games gave Gothita and Rufflet their previously-unused hidden Abilities. Due to Klink being genderless, the change in breeding mechanics did not affect it, and its hidden Ability remains unused.
Larvesta and Volcarona can now be found with their hidden Ability in the Generation VI games.
Also of note is that Litwick, Lampent, and Chandelure's hidden Ability in the Generation VI games changed from Shadow Tag to Infiltrator. These Pokémon can now be found in the Generation VI games with Infiltrator. Zapdos's hidden Ability was changed to Static in Generation VI. It can be seen with this Ability in the Battle Maison). However, it still remains unobtainable.
There are a few tiny corners of in-game locations that exist, but can't be visited without cheating.
Reversal Mountain's donut-type main chamber actually does have an interior section! It's this tiny cavern here - you can even see the stairs in the corner in-game, from one of the offshoots of the main path.
...Seeing it is all you're going to do, though. You can't actually reach it - it doesn't connect to the main path, and the stairs don't go anywhere. It's just...there. There might have been an item in here at one point, judging from the layout and the size of the chamber, but there's nothing of the sort now.
This may well be the single least exciting unused room ever to exist, by the way.
Pokémon World Tournament
Unused ROM tournaments
More screenshots, and translate the Japanese text.
|Download Unused ROM tournaments
File: BW2UnusedTournaments.rar (7.20 KB) (info)
There exists a file in all versions of the game that contains data for twelve additional tournaments, all of which are unused. If imported to the Download Tournament menu, it is shown to be data from the 2011 Pokémon World Championships. The ruleset, trainer data, and Pokemon data from the championship was all carried over, so the tournaments can be played as normal Download tournaments. However, the tournament files are slightly unfinished, because the names of the trainers and Pokemon are very weird and out of place.
Each division of the championships (Juniors, Seniors, and Masters) has a tournament file. One is the standard tournament, no modifications at all, while the other is a toned down, easier version. The remaining six files are just duplicates of the first six.
The presence of these tournaments is quite odd, as Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 weren't even out during the 2011 World Championships. These were probably going to be future Download tournaments at one point, or they could have just been used for testing.
Pokémon Black and White Leftovers
There has to be more where this came from, whether it's music or models. I know of the BW Title Screen theme, I'll have to rip that in OGG format.
Reupload with original music?
One of the most liked routes in the region was removed in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 because of the addition of Humilau City and subsequent areas. However, it seems they weren't entirely removed. The textures, models, and collisions remain, but the scripts, text, wild Pokémon data and building data were lost to time. Through hacking, these three maps can be once again accessible. By default, these maps use the Route 6 theme, although the same header in Black and White used the proper song. It may be possible that Route 10 could have stayed, just with a different song, but was scrapped early on. The game still identifies the location as "Route 10" in the save menu to retain location compatibility with Black and White, however, when entering the route, no eyecatch is present, and when viewing the Town Map, the arrow pointer defaults to the center of the map since the location technically does not exist in the game. When inquiring about your present location to your mother over the Xtransceiver, she says an otherwise unused piece of text (Shown in the next section). When it finishes displaying, the text automatically terminates.
Unused Mom Quotes
There may be more. Compare locations to text strings.
There are unused strings of text for inquiring to the player character's mother about his/her current location via the Xtransceiver. Most are locations where the Xtransceiver cannot be used, though one exists for Route 10 (see above).
What? The Plasma Frigate? Never heard of it. Should I go have a look and see what it's like?
Entralink? I don't know about that... Is there a place like that in the Unova region?
Ah, I liked Route 10. There was something lyrical about it...
The Royal Unova? A cruise ship from Castelia! You're getting pretty fancy! So, which is it going to be? Are you going to have fun battling or enjoy the sights?
