Main Games

Black & White

Right at the start of the game, you see her enter and quickly exit a house then you see you and your friends standing in front of a green box, you open it and find three Starter Pokémon and, as in all the other games, you choose first. Your male rival Cheren chooses the Starter with the type advantage over yours, while Bianca chooses the remaining Starter. When you have chosen your Pokémon, she demonstrates the method of simple battling. She uses a Minccino to battle and she catches a Patrat, which can be seen in her lab.
