The Relocator Option

If you say 'Everyone Happy' then 'Simple Connection' and save the game you will be able to use the 'Relocator' option at the 'Main' menu to transfer the Legendary Trio (Raikou, Suicune and Entei) and Celebi. It also allows you get the final TM - TM95 Snarl.

Quck way to level up

In the games Pokemon Black and White theres a new way to level Pokemon up quickly. There is a wild Pokemon called an Audino. This Pokemon gives you ton of experience, and can be encountered just about anywhere. Often when you see some patches of grass shaking that means an Audino is there, though other Pokemon do show up in the shaking grass. Now just imagined if you traded over a Pokemon and had it hold a Lucky Egg. You could easily do some speed training and level up your Pokemon quickly. At the start of the game you'll have to settle for just battling Audino. Though thats not so bad considering it can cause your Pokemon to go up a couple of levels.

Pokemon Storage System

The basic PC Storage System that was created by Dr. Fennel's assistant Amanita starts out as a total of 8 Storage Boxes, each of which can hold 30 Pokemon, which gives a starting total of 240 Pokemon. As there are 17 types of Pokemon, and as most Trainers prefer to create a box for each type, properly labeled and with a suitable wallpaper, this makes things a bit awkward.
The trick to expanding the PC Storage System is to place a Pokemon into each of the current 8 boxes, and then exit the PC, and reload it. Once you do that, you now have 16 Storage Boxes that hold a total of 480 Pokemon!
Obviously 16 boxes is not sufficient to create a box for each type, so you will need to place a Pokemon into each of the open 16 boxes, and again quit the PC, and re-open it, and no..

Seeing the affect a nature has on stats

Heres something that might be useful if you want a Pokemon that strong in one stat. In Pokemon Black and White, like in Heart Gold and Soul Silver when you look at your Pokemon's stats, you'll notice that a couple of the stats seem to have a different color. Its a very slight difference and you may be able to see it only under certain light. One stat will be a red color while the other will be a bluish color. If your Pokemon has a neutral nature you won't see this at all. This color difference tells you how your Pokemon nature affects it's stats as it levels up. The red means that stat will grow stronger, while the blue means your Pokemon will not grow as quickly in that stat as it normally would.

The Hidden Power Checker can be found within the Mistralton City Pokemon Center. This is very important to know if you are going to teach your Pokemon Hidden Power.
