    Good job, this is crazy. Is the pokeradar in gen V?
  • ookamionnanoko - March 26, 2011 11:50 a.m.

    I am very glad i found this, thank you, another forum I visited had someone telling people Rock smash didn't even exist in this game, and i knew it had to
  • WelcomeGhosts10 - March 16, 2011 2:55 a.m.

    Impressed as always! Look forward to using this in my post-gameplay!
  • StickyLungs - March 13, 2011 1:20 a.m.

    Thank you, Carolyn!!
  • Tackman - March 11, 2011 8:57 p.m.

    That's a very good list! However, you forgot to mention that all items that can be bought in Black City can also be found in White Forest.
  • KrEid - March 11, 2011 6:08 p.m.

    BAH! Pretty annoyed that I can't get an ice punch TM, my Weavile just has ice beam and I wasn't spending hours on HG Voltorb Flip to get it -___- Thought black would have one
  • philipshaw - March 11, 2011 12:03 p.m.

    Awesome work, I will be using this when I get the game
  • ssj4raditz - March 11, 2011 6:31 a.m.

    I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put so much into these guides, Carolyn. Keep up the awesome work on the Pokemans guides, please!
  • GamesRadarCarolynGudmundson - March 11, 2011 5:41 a.m.

    @Nap1400 - OMG, that is my mistake - I don't know why I wrote that. I meant to just say Elixirs and Ethers. Full Heals and Full Restores are definitely available at Poke Marts!
  • MechaGecko - March 11, 2011 4:29 a.m.

    Thanks very much i was looking for earthquake but i guess i want looking hard enough.
  • jpbr139 - March 11, 2011 4:23 a.m.

    Thanks Carolyn, all these guides are really hard work. You make me feel that I don't love pokemon enough...
  • SirNinja - March 11, 2011 3:34 a.m.

    I absolutely LOVE that TMs are finally reusable. Black/White rocks! Awesome lists, by the way - these will all be very helpful.
  • Nodoudt - March 11, 2011 3:11 a.m.

    @Riche666 Miss Gudmundson has the most exciting life anyone can imagine!
  • Lando81 - March 11, 2011 3:05 a.m.

    Thank You Carolyn! Your hard work is greatly appreciated!
  • Nap1400 - March 11, 2011 3:04 a.m.

    What?! Full restores aren't purchaseable? That's dumb, GF.
  • Robusken - March 11, 2011 2:40 a.m.

    Ah! Thank you! I've been looking for an orderly list of all the TMs, theyre pretty addicting to collect.
  • Riche666 - March 11, 2011 2:19 a.m.

    Does Carolyn have a life.
  • OnyxOblivion - March 11, 2011 2:01 a.m.

    Good. None of the TMs are ridiculous hard to get or require use of the C-Gear. I'm sorry, Game Freak. But random multiplayer hookups just don't happen often outside of Japan. They just don't.
