Theres a really easy way to get a Star Piece everyday. A Star Piece sells for 4900 making this an easy way to get money. Right before you go inside Pinwheel forest you should see a non paved path with a nurse in front of it. Follow that path to a set of stairs and head up them. At the top theres a bunch of small rocks and one big one, which is called the training rock. Go up the the large rock with a fighting type Pokemon in your party. If you don't have a fighting type you can always catch on in the grass. Anyway go click on the rock and let your Pokemon try to break the it. When this happens your Pokemon will break off a Star Piece. Now you can either go sell your Star Piece or save it for a rainy day.

If you're at all interested in TM95 SNARL, then listen up. It is obtainable in Pokemon Black/White if you have a Lock Capsule in your Heart Gold/Soul Silver game. Simply trade it over via the relocator and take it to Mr. Lock in the Northern Road of Castelia City. He'll unlock it and give you the TM with no trouble at all.
If you have an event Celebi in your Heart Gold/Soul Silver games, you will be able to trade it over to your copy of Black/White and receive the Zorua Pokemon. Simply go to one of Castelia City's gates. If you're at the right one, there will be a girl standing inside next to a Pokemon. When you talk to the girl with Celebi in your party, Celebi will pop out of it's Pokeball and Zorua will change from it's Illusion. After this time, you will be given Zorua as a gift. Enjoy it if you can get it!
If you have either Raikou, Entei or Suicune in your Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver games and you transfer it to your Pokemon Black/White, you will be able to gain access to the Lostlorn Forest area. In this place, you will find someone who mentions a Pokemon that has been known to create illusions. You will find a Pokemon matching one of the beasts that you didn't transfer over. If you send over Raikou, you'll see Entei in Black/White. If you send over Entei and you'll see Suicune in Black/White. If you send over Suicune, you'll see Raikou in Black/White. When you attack, you'll see that it is in fact a Zoroark. This is the only way you can capture Zoroark. If you capture Zoroark, it's attacks will be Fury Swipes, Faint Attack, Scary Face, and Taunt.
Go to Castelia City and find a building with a man standing in it. This man will be facing the right hand wall and wearing a scientist like outfit. If you find the right person, he'll give you the chance to enter four words. Enter the following:
That should give you the chance to trade over certain Pokemon and items from Heart Gold/Soul Silver that will be vital for obtaining special events in Black/White.
In Pokemon Black and White, sometimes when you throw a Pokeball, and you'll be guaranteed to catch the Pokemon no matter what Pokeball you used. This happens very rarely so you may be playing awhile before it happens. When it happens the Pokeball will pause in midair for a split second before hitting the Pokemon and catching it.
Technical Machine or TMs have taken a new twist in Pokemon Black and White. Unlike in other Pokemon Games where they can only be used once, you can now use them as many times as you want. In another words TMs are now reusable like HMs. Now you don't have to worry about wasting your money on TMs, or not being able to find another one of a TM you need.
Just a small word to the wise that may help you through this game. The main enemy team in this game, Team Plasma, has a very bad (Or good for you) tendency to use Pokemon that are incredibly weak to fighting type attacks. This could be good if you choose Tepig as your starter, or manage to catch a strong fighting type early on in the game.
When you get to the town with the first gym, don't head to the gym straight away. Go to the top right exit of town and to the dream yard. There talk to a lady who will give you an elemental monkey, Pansage, Pansear, or Panpour. The one that you get depends on your starter Pokemon. You pick Oshawott you get the fire monkey Pansear, Snivy you get the water monkey Panpour, and if you get Tepig you'll be given the grass monkey Pansage. Now that you have your monkey go ahead to the first gym, your monkey will have a type advantage over which gym leader you battle.
This a new fish Pokemon in the 5th gen Pokemon games and has two forms though you cannot change it, Whichever form you find it in is how it'll stay. Good news is you can get both of it's forms in each game. Its Red stripe form is more common in Pokemon Black while it's Blue stripe form is more common in Pokemon White. While your fishing or surfing spots of water you'll sometimes see a round dark blue spot. A lot of the time when you surf over to the spot or fish in them you might run into the rarer form of Basculin.
