The Xtransceiver is the first key item you’ll receive at the beginning of your Black & White journey. After choosing your starter Pokémon, your Mom will give you the Xtransceiver before leaving home.
The Xtransceiver is a key item that facilitates communication between many main characters, including Professor Juniper, Bianca, and Cheren. The Xtransceiver also has a C-Gear wireless feature, which previously enabled communication with other players close by.
Getting the Xtransceiver
Your journey to become Pokémon Champion will start in your bedroom in Nuvema Town. Here, you’ll be tasked with picking your starter Pokémon.
After picking your starter Pokémon, your friend Bianca will challenge you to a battle.
Once you’ve defeated Bianca, you’ll have the opportunity to battle Cheren as well.
After your battle with Cheren is over you’ll be able to head downstairs.
Your Mom will then greet you downstairs and give you the Xtransceiver.
Using the Xtransceiver
The Xtransceiver is the primary method of communication in Black and White.
Over the course of your journey, you’ll frequently be contacted over video chat with characters such as Professor Juniper, your Mom, Cheren, and others.
The Xtransceiver also has a C-Gear function, which allows wireless communication with three other players nearby. It can be used for both audio and video chat, although this is less common nowadays since fewer people are still playing Black/White on original hardware.
But this item can be found in your Key Items pocket in your bag, although it cannot be used to initiate calls between other characters.
