Diamond Dust, dual-types and type statistics
General News — 31 December, 2012
If you visit Icirrus City in your Pokemon game today, December 31st, you have the opportunity to see the rare weather condition Diamond Dust. When walking around outside in the town the air will sparkle instead of the typical snow.
It's available in all Generation 5 games - Black, White, Black 2 or White 2. In BW2 once you have seen it you will receive the Diamond Dust medal! If you're reading this in 2013, not to worry. There are several other rumoured dates that Diamond Dust will appear, including January 12th. See the Pokebase question: How do you experience the Diamond Dust weather?
Nintendo also stated recently there will be a Pokemon announcement on January 8th. Whether that will be a new game or not is unknown. We'll post news as soon as we get it.
In other news, I have made some nice little additions to our type pages. On every type page you will first see some totals at the top of the page that count every Pokemon and move of that type. Further down we now have
stat averages which tell you for each stat like HP or Attack, what their average is across the type, and where they are ranked. (See below for a spoiler)
Also, the dual type chart now has links in the
PKMN column to view all the Pokemon of that type combination. So if you've looked at the chart and wondered
which Pokemon is Fire/Electric type? you can click the number 1 next to that row and see that it's Rotom Heat form!
And finally, a belated Merry Christmas, happy holidays and a Happy New Year to all our visitors! We have lots of new additions coming up in 2013 so stay tuned!
Spoiler - the types ranked #1 for each stat: HP = Dragon Attack = Dragon Defense = Steel Special Attack = Dragon Special Defense = Steel Speed = Flying
