In pokemon, I've been troubled by the fact that the patches of grass and water that used to be in White Forest have altogether disappeared. I've gone through four months already in real life, so the seasons should have brought about grass?

I'm confused because I'm not sure how I get pokemon back into the White Forest.. Does it involve something with Black City?

The Bulbapedia page doesn't clarify this.

One thing I've always found is that if Bulbapedia doesn't have it, usually does. In fact, they have a page on White Forest/Black City that describes a kinda cheap mechanic: if you play the game, a variable that indicates the "level" of the area will decrease by 3, until it reaches 0. As it decreases, people, trees, and grass will disappear. The only way to stop it from decreasing is to go to White Forest and talk to EVERYBODY, except the nurses and clerks. Keep in mind, this will only stop the process, not reverse it. The only way to reverse it is by using the Entralink to recruit people from Black version. If you need a more in-depth description/walkthrough of the process, go to and click "Enter." From there, go to the left navigation bar, find Black/White, and click it. After the page loads, go to the RIGHT side bar, and find the page on Black City/White Forest, it will have all the info I provided and more. I hope that helped!
