As such, we're working as fast as we can to bring the site up. At the moment, at time of writing, the bulk of the site should be easily accessible and up to date. However, there are various parts of the site that are currently running off of an old backup while we're uploading the current files. Specifically, the animé and TCG sections will be not completely up to date at the moment so please bear with us while we re-upload the content so if you see something missing, don't contact us just yet.

However, for the past couple of weeks, my good friend Dragonite & I have been hard at work on the Serebii.net Event Database. This database contains almost 600 different event entries from around the world making it a vital resource for all of you event collectors.

Pokémon Black & White - Illusion Ability

The latest issue of Nintendo Dream has provided new insights into the special Illusion ability that Zoroark & Zorua both have. This ability, as we knew previously, allows for Zorua/Zoroark to be transformed into another Pokémon when sent into battle, as seen with the special event when you capture Zoroark. However, prior to now, the details of the ability were not known. We now know the details of this ability. The ability allows for Zorua & Zoroark to be in the form of the Pokémon in second place in your party at the time of it being sent out. This means that if you have say Jigglypuff in the front of your party, Zorua & Zoroark would appear in battle as a Jigglypuff. As we know from before, it keeps its Dark-type, but its appearance and name will match the Pokémon of which it has an Illusion.
In addition to those details, it provided a massive image of the Isshu region, showing more areas than the images so far. It doesn't provide new details but does show an airfield and speculates that there is an airport in the game and various places such as a theme park, windmills, ancient ruins and what they think is a blast furnace.

Black & White - Zoroark Clarification

With the new downloads of the beasts; Entei, Raikou & Suicune in Japan to tie in with the upcoming movie, further details have been revealed about the in-game Zoroark event. As we stated last month, when you bring the beasts to Black & White through the Transfer Machine, you will get access to Zoroark in an as-of-yet undisclosed location in Isshu. This battle with Zoroark has you first face against an Illusion of one of the beasts. Previously, we didn't know what causes Zoroark to change form, but a pamphlet with the download has since confirmed it.
If you send over Raikou, Zoroark will appear as Entei.
If you send over Entei, Zoroark will appear as Suicune.
If you send over Suicune, Zoroark will appear as Raikou.
It is still not currently known how Zoroark's Illusion ability will work outside of this special event. The pamphlet also further confirmed the fact that Zorua & Zoroark can only be obtained through these special events. We'll bring more as it comes.

Pokémon Black & White - Transfer Method Mentioned

Hidden away within CoroCoro's page about Celebi & Zorua in Black & White, there is a screenshot that gives some minor details about the transfer method. In the games, there is a machine called the Pokémon Transfer Machine (転送マシンでポケモン). The screenshot simply states that Celebi is being transferred through the Pokémon Transfer Machine. This appears to be the method of transferring the Pokémon from your 4th Generation games to your 5th Generation ones. This is to be done over the standard local wireless and appears to be one at a time. It is necessary to send Celebi & the shiny beasts obtained from the 13th movie over to Black & White to obtain Zorua & Zoroark. It is currently unknown if there are any limits to the Pokémon Transfer Machine similar to the original Pal Park restrictions in Diamond & Pearl
The official site also elaborates into the C Gear. It also shows on the menu and in the C-Gear that there are three methods of communication; Wireless, WiFi and IR (InfraRed) and you can use the C Gear with all three. These options are shown in the battle menu so it'll be able to tell when you're battling in any of those. These options are running while you're in actual gameplay as opposed to in a Union Room. To what extent, is not yet known.
In addition to that, the preview page for CoroCoro simply states that it will contain a variety of new bits of information, some pertaining to the adventure. It does not go into specifics.

Serebii.net Generation IV Pokédex Overhaul

On Monday, I decided to begin framework on the Black & White Pokédex in preparation for September. However, in doing so, I fell in love with the new style I implemented and decided I couldn't wait until September to share it on the site so I decided to update the Generation IV Pokédex with this new style. This style is noticiably cleaner, holds a bit more information and even has algorithms to ease scrolling for Pokémon whose forms have different TM and Tutor moves. Various other databases on the site will soon change to match the style introduced here. If however, you prefer the old version, I have kept it here. The Gen IV AttackDex has also been updated to match this new system. In addition to the aesthetic changes, I've also added more information on each Pokémon that learns the move and included the level each Pokémon learns it at.
