Hey everyone! After a long wait, I'm excited to announce the reboot of an old series that we had on Azurilland: MarriPlays! Feel free to join the rest of the forums as we replay Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 — this time with @theDINOsaurus joining me as a host! Also sorry it took so long to get this up and running heheheheheheh
What's this thread for?
This thread is really similar to the "progress lounge" that we make whenever a new game comes out — feel free to use it to give updates, talk about the game itself, or even ask a question! The whole purpose of this event is to simulate that "new game feel" with the rest of the forums, so be sure to go all out.
Every week either me or Dino will post an update with a question, naming theme, and goal for the week. That being said, how you play through the game is totally up to you! You don't need to use our naming themes or follow our goals, just as long as you're playing through the game you're welcome to post here.
The goals will be set up so that at the end of the playthrough, everyone will have reached the end. For these games, the end goal will be beating the Pokémon League and entering the hall of fame. If you want to pace yourself differently and play through the post game too, go for it! To claim the MarriPlays badge though, you'll need to finish the game. Don't let that stop you though — if you're late that's fine, just as long as you signed up before the playthrough ended.
Battling and trading
Unfortunately official support for Wi-Fi on Nintendo DS games has ended, but don't let that get you down! You can still simulate battles with other players on Pokémon Showdown if you want. If you're feeling really adventurous you could also look into using unofficial Wi-Fi servers, but you'll need to get that worked out on your own if you want to do that. If you're interested in battling or trading, be sure to point it out on your sign up form!
Other ways to play
Some people might find a casual playthrough a bit lackluster, so if you're in the mood for a challenge by all means go for it! Anyone can play however that want, whether that means doing a Nuzlocke or putting other restrictions on yourself. We also allow people to play ROM hacks as long as they follow the same general story as the main games. However, linking to ROMs, patches, or emulators is still against the forum rules and not allowed.
