The special Drives that are needed to change Techno Blast's type can be obtained when players take Genesect to the P2 Lab. There, they will be challenged to a battle by a Team Plasma researcher and if they win, the researcher will give them two out of the four Drives. Pokémon Black 2 players will get the Burn and Shock Drives, while Pokémon White 2 players will get the Douse and Chill Drives.
