Gift Pokémon

 > Guides & Games  > Black/White

While the options make for a total of 14 possible gifts, in the end you'll be afforded the opportunity to obtain 11 Pokémon for next to nothing (one of these gifts costs a mere 500). Straight to it, then.

Well, their names imply that they are chimpanzees at this point, but they will evolve into simians... Head east to the Dreamyard before challenging your first gym in Striaton City. Here, strike up a conversation with the lady in the southeast corner and she will give you your first free Pokémon!

What you'll get is one of three simians. These Pokémon are similar to your starters in the sense that their types create the exact same element type trumping triangle. The thing with these Pokémon is the one that you get is determined by the starter that you chose, your simian will be weak against your starter. This is useful for the first gym, especially, as the leader there is going to use a Pokémon strong against your starter, so the simian will trump that Pokémon in the end. Their utility fades as the game progresses but keeping the one you get on your team is ultimately your call.

  • Picked Snivy; Get Panpour
  • Picked Tepig; Get Pansage
  • Picked Oshawott; Get Pansear

As far as evolving them goes, you'll get a stone, specific to the chimp you got, in Castelia City. As soon as you enter, or at the furthest east you can go, there's a short pier with no name. The scientist here will give you the stone.

plume_fossil lid_fossil

You'll recieve either a Plume or Dome fossil in the Relic Castle (entrance which has Zen Mode Darmanitan statues out-front). Talk to the female backpacker on the first floor just by the stairs in the far west corner of the room. Its your choice but you'll have to trade away to get the Pokémon that you opt not to get here.

Twist Mountain Fossils

I generally put the description/text after displaying the Pokémon I'm going to talk about but there are seven fossils, so putting the description up top seemed logical here. I guess the arbitrary cut-off is three then...

If you're looking for fossils, you can essentially get all of them in Black/White (minus the fossil you don't pick in the Relic Castle, you'll have to trade for that one). To get them, you'll first need to have earned your National Dex. At any rate, you can pickup one unrevived fossil per day at Twist Mountain. The quickest route is to enter the mountain by heading south from Icirrus City. Inside, make your way west and southbound for the exit. Now head west just a bit, down the wide set of stairs and then down those smallers stairs into the cave. Straight north and you've found the daily fossil man (name pending confirmation from nobody)...

Remember, you're just getting the fossils. Fly out to Nacrene City to have them revived in the museum there.

So Magikarp isn't known for being rare, ever. And, if you've recently played HGSS, then your shiny Gyarados may well make its way into Unova at somepoint. Until then, for the low price of 500 you can purchase a level 5 Magikarp!

Simply head to the Marvelous Bridge, preferrably by leaving Nimbasa and heading east, and speak to the first guy there for the deal of the century. Its not technically free but how could you pass up Magikarp at this price?

So you've decided you want what is perhaps the greatest Bug Pokémon of all-time? You can catch Volcarona later (depending on how far you are in-game) but getting it as early as possible is a good move, but that's merely an opinion. You'll need an open spot in your team for the egg that you are about to be bestowed and the Surf HM. All set?

At any rate, to get to Route 18 you'll need to surf, hit the water in the middle of Route 1 and continue westward on Route 17.

The Pokémon on these routes are low-mid thirties, to give you an idea of where you should be. Continue west until you hit a ledge overlooking water. South to the gateway and Route 18. Time to surf some jetstreams (feeling a bit nostalgic for Hoenn yet, are you?). Continue west in the water and then a bit south when you see a female swimmer. You'll be faced with three streams. Two moving west, and one you can't take. To get to the final destination, take the southernmost stream.

Make landfall, head up the staircases and then head north and west again. Inside that house there, yup, get that egg.
