Muito menos pontos que o Pokemon Black...
jos 28 Apr 2020 15:50
Pokemon Black also has more achievements and it's a bit overscored for my taste. I could have made a copy paste set, but that wouldn't be fun neither for me nor for users who want to play both.
AleKing31 28 Apr 2020 16:31
Thank you
nuuch 28 Apr 2020 20:43
ive never played gen 5 specifically because im not a fan of the starters but i might actually give this one a go since it has fresh cheevos. seeing as im going in completely blind i have to ask, are there any missables?
jos 28 Apr 2020 21:03
Not that I know of.
ryuzakix 2 May 2020 03:08
I'm kind of going insane trying to find the 202nd non-Unova Pokemon, I went through the Pokedex more than 30 times, and I can't see any pre-evolution nor any catchable Pokmon that isn't in an evolutionary line, any clue on what am I missing?
Triplapeeck 5 Jul 2020 02:38
I don't remember all the non-Unova Pokemon, but there could be some available only by breeding (not essence) like Illumise and Volbeat.
DemonKingOdio 29 May 2021 14:15
Why not a Merged set like HeartGold/SoulSilver?
Fretzi 27 Jul 2022 02:19
Man, I didn't expect this to take me nearly 100 hours of playtime. Getting a team ready for the Battle Subway and then actually tackling that beast took up so much more time than I had first anticipated, but it's a good feeling to have done it. Acquiring all the Pokémon was rather smooth sailing, and while that obviously also took its time, at least I knew I constantly made progress, unlike breeding the competitive Pokémon or praying to not get RNG'd to death in the Battle Subway. Overall though, this did spark a newfound love for Generation 5 for me and I wouldn't be opposed to approach the other Generation 5 titles in the future. If you want to try this yourself, PLEASE NOTE A MISSABLE! "My Personal Safari" is an achievement you can permanently get locked out of, if you take too long to reach White Forest. If you don't want to do a second playthrough, make sure to reach this place as quickly as you can!

Mastered, finally. I don't think I'll be playing this game for a long, long, time.
NightSide2000 3 Feb 2023 21:39
Mastered, gonna take a break from Pokemon achievements xd
WKGames 11 Mar 2023 15:47
Mastered! According to RetroArch, this took me 61:12:28 in real time (mostly sped up) and I finished with a final In-Game time of 69:12. I mastered Black version just before finishing this so I was able to optimize a lot of the achievements like catching them all and the Battle Subway.

This set is slightly more tedious than Black version, but still much easier than Platinum version and far harder than Gens 1-3 (excluding Emerald, possibly).

Catching them all in Gen 5 is possibly easier than every generation since Gen 1, Audino grinding + Free Lucky Egg speeds up the process by so much. The 5% rustling grass / whirlpool / fishing whirlpool encounters are pretty bad, but everything else is easy with enough time. I recommend saving your master ball for Lapras / Politoed as losing such a rare encounter to perish song is one of the worst feelings ever.

The next roadblock is the Battle Subway. I already did this in Black version so I knew what to expect. It is about as difficult as the Battle Tower of Gens 2-4 so make sure you use Pokemon with good IVs and optimal EV training. The Super Double Battle Subway is possibly the hardest part of this set as a bad matchup can end your run immediately.

After the Subway, the rest of the achievements are just grindy. Worthy of the Champion Title + Foreign Challenger take a while. You need to raise a Pokemon from Level 1 all the way to Level 100 for The Biggest Pokefan. Fashion Enthusiast is possibly the worst offender as getting all 99 obtainable props is very RNG-dependent in this generation. Expect to change your clock constantly while finishing off this set.

This is also the first Pokemon set which cannot be completed 100% legit on emulator: you need the Liberty Pass to catch Victini which requires either action replay or a modded save file (check the set forum for info).

Overall, an enjoyable set although finishing the Battle Subway / 99 Props is a very annoying challenge. I only have White 2 and HG/SS left :)
Digifiend 19 Mar 2023 19:27
If it can't be done on an emulator, it can't be done while linked to RetroAchievements. If you need a modded save, then it shouldn't be an achievement.
carboni13 10 Jul 2023 04:00
is there a way to speed up the game?
firkinblin 28 Sep 2023 00:05
To be more specific about the matter surrounding White Forest, yes, that achievement is missable if you aren't planning on connecting to Pokemon Black later on. And it requires you to beat the entire E4 first, too.

Moreover, this is something that is affected by the REAL passage of time -- most sources claim that 3-6 days is the limit before your forest will empty out (rates vary with different NPCs). And from then on, the only way to replenish it is to connect to Black.

As for me, I beat the game after almost 18 in-game hours (often sped up) over the course of three days and can confirm that I had the max of 10 pokemon in my forest. It's more likely to have a slow burn until nothing is left, but theoretically, you could miss out by losing multiple NPCs on the 4th or 5th day, I'd suppose.

If you're worried about that achievement, it's best to wait until you've got a weekend off or ready to commit 4-6 hours per day for a few days. Or be ready to use Black version. Not sure if any other workaround exists for it, barring straight-up cheating.

Finally mastered. This was my 3rd Pokemon mastery on RA and I'm pretty happy with the choice I made. White was a decent game, definitely the best story of the series (at least in my opinion) and one great regional dex (given that there are no foreign Pokemon, so you only get "new" stuff).

The set was good aswell. I obviously had issues with a lot of what other people did, like Victini and White Forest: they shouldn't be achievements if they require outside usage of other tools. Other than that, it was an average 100% completion of a Pokemon game, just a lot of grinding towards the end and some pretty mindnumbing stuff like the musical props, but that was to be expected.

Battle Subway was actually decent: I went into it dreading the entire experience but I didn't mind it. I'm someone who doesn't really like Battle Facilities, I prefer nuzlockes if I want pure battles, so for the Subway (and by extension, the Institute) to be fun, I take that as a major positive.

All in all, a pretty good set. I finished it in 75:23 real time and 276:33 IGT (almost all of which was sped up).
