Pokémon White Version

NDS ROM Pokémon White Version 2023-07-03

Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version are role-playing video games released in 2010. Developed by Game Freak and published by The Pokémon Company and Nintendo for the Nintendo DS, these games are the first in the fifth generation of the Pokémon video game series. They were initially launched in Japan on September 18, 2010, and later made available in Europe, North America, and Australia in 2011. In 2012, sequels to Black and White, Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2, were released for the Nintendo DS.

Similar to previous games in the series, Pokémon Black and White follow the journey of a young Pokémon trainer in the region of Unova. As they train Pokémon to compete against other trainers, they must also thwart the plans of the criminal organization Team Plasma. These games introduced 156 new Pokémon, surpassing the previous record set by Pokémon Red and Blue. They also introduced various new features, including a seasonal cycle, rotation battles, fully animated Pokémon sprites, and triple battles. While both titles have independent plots, trading Pokémon between the games is necessary to complete the Pokédex.
Upon their release, Pokémon Black and White received positive reviews, with praise for their gameplay advancements. However, opinions were divided on some of the Pokémon designs, and some critics felt that the games did not innovate as much as expected. Nonetheless, the games were commercial successes. Prior to their Japanese release, Black and White sold one million consumer pre-orders, making them the fastest-selling Nintendo DS titles to reach five million copies. As of September 2017, the combined sales of the games have reached 15. 4 million, placing them among the best-selling games for the Nintendo DS, just behind their predecessors, Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.

Pokémon Black and White are role-playing video games with adventure elements, presented from a third-person, overhead perspective. The games feature three basic screens: the overworld, where players navigate the main character; the battle screen; and the menu, where players can configure their party, items, and gameplay settings. Players control a Pokémon Trainer who begins the game with a single Pokémon and can capture more using Poké Balls. Like other trainers, players can carry up to six Pokémon at a time, with additional storage available in the network of PCs found in Pokémon Centers. These centers allow players to heal their Pokémon when they have low health or have fainted.

Pokémon in these games can learn up to four moves, including attacking moves, healing moves, and moves that inflict status conditions on opponents. They have six stats that affect their battle performance: maximum hit points (HP), Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed. Attack and Special Attack are distinguished from Defense and Special Defense based on the types of moves involved. Pokémon moves are categorized into seventeen types, and Pokémon can have one or two types. A Pokémon's type determines its vulnerability or resistance to different types of moves. For example, Fire-type Pokémon are weak to Water-type moves, while Grass-type moves do little damage to them and Electric-type moves do normal damage.

When encountering a wild Pokémon or being challenged by another Trainer to a battle, the game switches to a turn-based battle screen. Players can choose to use a move, an item, switch their active Pokémon, or flee. However, fleeing is not possible against other Trainers or certain powerful wild Pokémon. If a Pokémon's HP is reduced to zero, it faints until it is revived. When an opposing Pokémon faints, all participating Pokémon on the player's side receive experience points. Accumulating enough experience points allows a Pokémon to level up and increase its stats. Many Pokémon can evolve into different forms after meeting specific conditions, such as reaching a certain level or using a particular item. The "Day Care" location allows players to breed two Pokémon to create Eggs that hatch into baby Pokémon at level 1.

Pokémon Black and White take place in the Unova region, which is based on New York City. The region consists of various cities and towns connected by "Routes". Random encounters can occur in tall grass along routes or in bodies of water. Trainers can be battled in cities, towns, and along routes. Eight cities and towns in the game are home to Gym Leaders, powerful Trainers specializing in specific types of Pokémon. Defeating a Gym Leader earns the player a "Badge". Collecting all eight Badges is necessary to unlock the Pokémon League, where players face off against the "Elite Four" and the Champion. Throughout Unova, items can be found on the ground or purchased from "Poké Marts". These items include Hyper Potions for restoring HP, Antidotes for curing poisoning, and Revives for revitalizing fainted Pokémon. TMs (Technical Machines) teach moves to Pokémon, while HMs (Hidden Machines) are special TMs used to teach important moves that enable players to traverse the environment.
