animatated sprites?

these are two sprites found in the game. on closer inspection, they look like part of the animation frame for the trainer sprite. are these two sprites being used in the game? if not, is it worth mentioning that the main characters sprite might be animated initially? -Pokeant 01:40, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

No, these are for something else (Like the Pokeathelon sprites for Ethan and Lyra) Ataro 01:51, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. my mistake. -Pokeant 02:47, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Cheren's VS Sprite

So earlier I noticed that there were a couple differences between Cheren's VS sprite in the trailer (The one that also showed Black's beta VS sprite) and the final version in the games. In the trailer, Cheren's eyes are looking straight forward where as the in the games, he's looking at the player's VS sprite. There are also two small streaks in his hair in the final version's sprite. This isn't present in the beta sprite. Also, in the final version, his mouth is slightly open.

Can't tell about the mouth in the video, but everything else you mentioned, plus a color change on one side of his jacket, I saw too. I'll add it once I have time.--immewnitythemew 01:30, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
I'm surprised no one has mentioned Bel's missing C-gear (or whatever) in her beta sprite Ataro 01:37, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
Where's this!?!--immewnitythemew 20:57, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
This video has the beta sprite. --CoolPikachu! 08:32, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Zoroark's Shadow

In the first screenshots of Zoroark battling Zorua, Zoroark's shadow is illogically placed. The shadow of his left foot should start right at the base of his foot, but instead it starts in front of his left foot. This has since been fixed and therefore should be added to the Beta page. Note that the picture that I speak of is used in the Night Burst article, so that should also be changed to a corrected screenshot.

"God Stone"

I vaguely remember something about this, which would have been used to revive Kyurem, but was scrapped. This was in the page long ago, why was it removed? Blitzamirin 01:23, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

"Various items have been discovered by hackers in the coding of Black and White. These items can be obtained using Action Replay and other cheating products, but cannot be used." It doesn't have to be mentioned. Also, that's something they'll probably put in the third version..whenever it comes out. Ataro 01:28, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
No wonder it got deleted after I put it in. Pokedex493 00:10, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Of course they don't have to be mentioned, but it's a hell of a lot more interesting if they are mentioned. Damn you people suck at this, you know that? It's supposed to be a repository of information - not just what the higher-ups think is cool.
I don't mean to be rude, but I agree. This is supposed to be a website of knowledge, so the rule should be as long as it's true, it should be in the article it's supposed to be in, just make sure it has enough information. Pokedex493 20:02, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Liberty Island

In my Black, whenever I decide to fly to a location, Liberty Island has a "red pinpoint marker".As you know, cities and places with the aforementioned markers are flyable too, meaning that Liberty Island was, at some point, flyable too? It is the only non flyable location to show this... I'm redundant.^_^ Blitzamirin ^_^ 18:24, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

As mentioned here, yes that is the most likely reason. As far as I know it is the only such location in Unova. - GL<T> 18:30, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
My word, I never saw that trivia. Anyways, should it be noted here, as it could have been programmed this way in the beta. ~ Blitzamirin ~ 19:29, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

In-Battle Evolution

If I remember correctly, Black/White was also supposed to have it so that your Pokémon could evolve in-battle. Did I just dream that, or was it an idea that was scrapped? Sweekun 19:01, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Skyarrow "dropped sprite"?

What does this mean: "with one also showing what seems to be a dropped sprite whose use is unknown, and not including a sprite of a NPC"? Between the two pictures, I see no dropped sprites with unknown purposes. Is it talking about that slightly-distorted-due-to-scaling back sprite of the backpack-carrying girl? --HeroicJay 18:23, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

—I agree, although it sure can look like weird red machine, it is the aforementioned girl. Change? --ChReNiC 21:47, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Placeholder data for alternate Kyurem form

http://pokebeach.com/2012/02/placeholder-for-kyurem-forme-found-in-black-and-white-coding <-- As it says.

It also mentions similar data in Diamond/Pearl for the Pokemon that gained new forms in Platinum, so we could add that to the beta page for DP. Yamiidenryuu 19:11, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Beta Chargestone Cave?

I know Serebii isn't considered a reliable source around here, but it was the only place where I could find this image. Here you can see the rocks lying around the cave are of a darker tone and don't appear to glow as much as in the final version... additionally, some of them also appear to be differently shaped. What do you think? Haxorus 01:03, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I think we should add it. Right guys? - A Wild (?) Appeared 13:20, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
That image of the Chargestone Cave can't be uploaded, but it should be noted in the article though. Lady Ariel 16:39, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Hidden track?

Any idea what's up with this track? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4f2RnozJ1w It's in the game files as SEQ_BGM_E_INISHIE but it's not included in the official soundtrack release and as far as I know it doesn't play ingame. Hheebo 12:59, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

If I'm not mistaken, it actually plays during the Meloetta event that teaches it Relic Song. - Blazios talk 13:07, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
Really? That's cool, I forgot all about that. Hheebo 16:59, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Route 4 Music? I'm confused.

Which music played for Route 4? The eastern entrance music or that cool twinkly music in the main forest? Thank you for your time A wild ------ appeared (talk) 19:03, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Name

Unova was planned for the name Alloes, in a beta version from the english was this name. --Altruis でんき 04:28, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Anyway you can provide a source for this besides your word? --Spriteit (talk) 05:07, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
It's here. --Abcboy (talk) 05:11, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Added taking into account the forum topic and several staff member confirmations (a picture would be unlikely but desirable still). --Spriteit (talk) 05:49, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Not too unlikely. Bluesun (talk) 06:08, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
