Pokemon White Version Cheats & Cheat Codes for DS

Was Pokémon White one of your favorite Pokémon games back in the heyday of the Nintendo DS and the Black and White chaos? It was an enormously impactful game for the series, adding more than 150 new Pokémon White and a brand new story. Plus, it has innovative ways to connect with friends, trade codes or Pokémon White items, and even battle each other. If you’re jumping back in, we have some cheat codes that will help you.

Pokémon White Version Summary

Player’s return to the Unova region with an expanded map and gameplay.

Back in the DS days, Nintendo made a 2010 decision to release two versions of the game, a Black and White version. This wasn’t uncommon: It’s been Nintendo’s strategy since the 1990s to boost sales, and works well (it still happens to this day). But for this Black and White series, Nintendo added even more features. Notably, both versions contained a spot only accessible on that version of the game, in this case, the White Forest.

Otherwise, many elements will be familiar to Pokémon players. That includes a campaign system that featured only brand new Pokémon from over 150 new additions and a greater focus on battling other players.

Pokémon White was notable for several advances in addition to its new roster. It was the first Pokémon game where weather and seasons influenced the world and accessible areas. It was also one of the first times that Nintendo limited certain Pokémon (in this case, Zekrom) to specific versions of the game, a practice that continued over the years.  

The game also includes several innovations allowing community contact. That included C-Gear, which could use Nintenod’s Wi-Fi to connect to the Global Link of Pokémon players so they could see and interact with their local friends. Nintendo’s approach to multiplayer gaming may be interesting, but the ability to play against friends or check on dreaming Pokémon was unique.

Finally, the game included an “Xtransceiver” that let players connect via video chat with the DSi camera, another new innovation that didn’t quite pass the test of time.

Pokémon White Version Premise

Player walking around Unova region.
Even though characters lack personality, they are still crucial to the gameplay.

Players begin as a new Pokémon trainer under the tutelage of Professor Juniper. As with other Pokémon games, the trainer is expected to fill out their Pokedex while traveling to increasingly large areas available for exploration. The weather mechanics influences the player to learn which areas were accessible during the right seasons, or which Pokémon came out during certain seasons.

Although the Trainer plans to head to the Pokémon League, they soon run into a problem. An enemy team called Team Plasma stands in their way. Team Plasma is a collection of jerks with…well, a really good point. They believe Pokémon shouldn’t be captured, that it’s essentially a form of slavery and destroying the Pokémon way of life. Their goal is to free all Pokémon from human trainers, by force if necessary, so they aren’t exactly fans of the Pokémon League. We, too, wonder why they have an official team name.  

However, signs soon appear that Team Plasma is nothing but a puppet, controlled by a mysterious organization with a leader named Ghetsis. The trainer must work to uncover this mystery and learn going on while growing their own Pokémon. Doing so may lead to access to never-before-seen locations.

Pokémon White Version Main Characters

Trainer: The Trainer can be either male or female. The male version is called Hilbert, and the female version is called Hilda. Both are very smart trainers from Nuvema Town who are about to set out on their first missions.

Cheren: A childhood friend who also sets out to become a Trainer. However, Cheren is focused on winning at all costs. This causes problems when it becomes clear that there’s more to the world than the Pokémon League, which may put Cheren at odds with the main character.

Professor Juniper: This bright and cheerful professor may have a little trouble focusing, but she’s brilliant and full of energy. Her job is to help new Trainers out, give them their first Pokémon, and offer valuable advice. As the world grows more complicated, she can also be a bedrock of support when it comes to tough decisions.

Bianca: Bianca is another childhood friend who sets out to become a Trainer. While she’s technically a rival to the main character according to the rules of the League, in practice she’s the opposite of Cheren. Instead of caring who wins, Bianca likes to travel, hang out with her Pokémon, and learn more about the world.

Team Plasma: This hood-wearing team thinks trainers have Pokémon all wrong. Their goal is to get as many Pokémon released as possible so they can live free lives out in the wilderness. They may have a point, but their methods are problematic, and include capturing Pokémon to use their powers. What’s even worse, it appears that someone else is behind Team Plasma with far more devious goals in mind. The Trainer frequently finds themselves in direct competition with Team Plasma.

N: N is the code name for the leader of Team Plasma. He is a dangerous enemy, not just because he controls powerful Pokémon but because he holds strong ideals. He firmly believes that Pokémon need to be separated from the human world to be free, and holds great compassion for them. However, his past and his strong beliefs can also make him easy to control by those in power.

Ghetsis: Ghetsis is a mastermind and powerful influencer who is an expert at playing both sides. He will gladly save people and help the Seven Sages if it furthers his goal, but it’s a bad idea to stand in his way. He is one of the people responsible in steering N toward certain beliefs and actions, which also helps his plans.

Alder: Alder is the previous champion of the regional Pokémon League and very well-known in the land of Unova. He is willing to offer advice and even mock battles to trainers interested in competing. However, he doesn’t look at the League in the same way after a beloved Pokémon of his past died, leaving him to wander.

Pokémon White Version Cheats and Codes

There’s a lot to explore and companions to meet in Pokemon White.


There are no built-in cheat codes in Pokémon White that you can just input by playing the game normally. You have to unlock everything through gameplay — which can take a long time. However, the DS does have an alternate option called Action Replay, a cheat device that allows you to input codes like a Game Shark, etc. Get an Action Replay that’s compatible with a DS, and you can unlock cheats for Pokémon White.

If you are playing Pokémon White via an emulator, look up your emulator and see if there is a way to input Action Replay codes. Many emulators include this function, although the method can vary. When you’re ready, you may want to try some of our favorite codes below, although the full list is much longer:

Pokémon White Version Cheat FAQs

What Version of Action Replay Do I Need?

There are a lot of Action Replays out there so we know that it can be confusing if you’re trying to buy one for an older system like the DS. First, make sure the Action Replay device is designed for the model of DS that you have — and that that DS can play Pokémon White, of course. Second, for even more confirmation, check that the Action Replay includes codes for Pokémon White. Many versions will list the games that they work with, which makes it easy to check.

Do These Cheat Codes Work with the Black Version of the Game Too?

Yes, all these cheat codes should work with Pokémon Black as well. However, they’re not guaranteed to work with the confusingly-named Pokémon White 2 and Black 2 that were released a couple of years later.

How Do I Get XP Fast in Pokémon White?

If you don’t want to use Action Replay, there are still a few tricks that can help you out. First, make sure you get the Lucky Egg from Professor Juniper ASAP. You can get this as part of the main campaign after the Chargestone Cave. It can double your XP for a given Pokémon. Second, look for wild Pokémon battles around the world that are as close to your level as possible. One of the favorites is Audino, which is relatively easy to find in grassy areas and gives a good amount of experience.w
