Pokemon Black Cheats & Cheat Codes for Nintendo DS

Pokemon Black is an RPG developed by GameFreak and released in 2010. The game would prove to be a massive success, selling 11.5 million copies and moving more units than any other DS game for that year. Pokemon Black would eventually go on to sell over 24 million copies, making it one of the most successful games in the series. GameFreak releases each Pokemon game in pairs. Accordingly, they released Pokemon Black alongside Pokemon White, but time has proven that Black is the more popular of the two.

The game’s introduction of a new roster and its lack of almost all original Pokemon has made it controversial among fans. That said, though some fans dislike the game because of its Pokemon roster, the title is considered to be one of the best games in the series in terms of plot.          

Pokemon Black Premise

Pokemon Black gameplay

Pokemon Black follows the central premise of other games in the series. Initially, players choose from two starting characters, Hilbert or Hilda, and battle their way to becoming a Pokemon master. The starting Pokemon for this generation include Snivy (Grass-type), Tepig (Fire-type), and Oshawatt (Water-type). The game also includes friends and rivals for the players to battle against, Cheren and Bianca. However, unlike past titles that had one rival who picked a starting Pokemon with a type advantage against the players, Bianca will choose a Pokemon with a type weakness.

The goal is to journey throughout the Unova region. Interestingly, Unova is modeled after New York City. Most in-game cities in Pokemon take inspiration from Japanese cities. Players will want to obtain eight Gym Badges and challenge the Elite Four and the Champion to become a Pokemon Master. Further, the game also includes enemies in the form of Team Plasma, a group dedicated to freeing Pokemon whom they believe trainers are abusing.

Pokemon Black Main Characters

Hilbert/Hilda: These two are the main characters of Pokemon Black. Both characters live in Nuvema Town along with their childhood friends, Cheren and Bianca. Depending on who the player chooses, the opposite character will appear in the Battle Subway as an NPC to aid players in the Multi-Train.

Cheren: Cheren is the childhood best friend of Hilbert/Hilda. He has a deep knowledge of Pokemon which can help the player along their journey. He will always choose the Pokemon with a type advantage over the player, giving him a slight edge during rival matches. 

Bianca: Bianca is also the childhood friend of Hilbert/Hilda. Her story follows her journey to becoming a Pokemon scientist as she determines that she isn’t strong enough to be a trainer. Bianca will always choose the Pokemon that is weak to the player.

Professor Juniper: Professor Juniper is a Pokemon scientist in Nuvema Town who focuses on Pokemon origins. She gives the player their starting Pokemon, a Pokedex, and teaches them how to capture Pokemon.           

N: N is the puppet ruler of Team Plasma. Ghetsis adopted N as a child and taught him about Pokemon, warping his views. N grew up believing that all Pokemon need to be freed back into the wild. 

Ghetsis: Ghetsis is the true leader of Team Plasma and the villain of Pokemon Black. His control of Team Plasma was purely for his own power. His ultimate goal was to convince trainers, through speeches or by force, to release their Pokemon back into the wild and free them.      

Alder: Alder is the Champion of Unova in Pokemon Black. He appears throughout the game to help the player along with other NPCs.
