Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

A female Pokémon with a Dream World ability (like a Darmanitan with Zen Mode) has a chance of passing on the ability when you breed it. Only females, not males. As for the Rage Candy Bars, you can get one from a house in Icirrus City, and another from Prof. Juniper post-game. After that, the only way to get them is by beating all the trainers on the Royal Unova on a Saturday.

You can technically see if your Fraxure has low initial stats, or anything that's rather sub-par. Go to the Battle Subway and talk to the Ace Trainer you see near immediately at the entrance. If Fraxure is as bad as you think it is, he'll probably say something like it being so-so or decent.

Also, it gets phenomenally powerful once it reaches Haxorus, so it might just be seeming to be weak because right now it's just a mere Fraxure. Training my Zweilous was a little difficult because it wasn't very outstanding and got hurt a lot fighting Pokémon around or higher of its level range. Once it evolved to a Hydreigon though, I was able to have a much easier time wiping enemies out.

Leveling up a Pokémon from 1 up doesn't necessarily mean that you'll get a better Axew or anything. It's all random again, and it's luck to you on whether certain marvelous initial stats of the parents get passed down to the offspring. There's ways to influence it though with certain items, but it's all up to the parents' own stats once more.

Finally, as hiff said, it might just be a hindering nature. You can look at the link he provided to see all the natures, but if you want to see what particular stat is growing or hindered, you can actually check your Fraxure's status screen. The stat with a subtle highlight in red is the helping one while the one stat highlighted in blue is the hindered stat.

Minerals? Vitamins, you mean? Proteins and Carbos can help, but it only goes so much, you know.

I feel like you were expecting an amazing Pokémon, but right now you're a little disappointed that it doesn't seem as marvelous as the hype was. But as I said again, perhaps evolving it to Haxorus will show you the awesomeness that this dragon holds.

By the way, Dragon Dance is an awesome thing for Fraxure. It helped me train the fellow quite quickly.

Isn't Iron & Calcium considered a mineral?
But I am evolving him soon sense he is level 47 now hopefully that works.
Ill check in trade if someone will trade me a Celebi, but I dont really have any good pokemon to trade at the moment since i just got the game last weekend ^.^

Another Question:
If I battle a friend, and they have a pokemon I havent seen, ex. Celebi., Will it show up in my pokedex so I cant get one in the Global Trade?


Thanks for the help
ps
I cant find my fraxtrues nature?

Not really sure how many masterballs you have, since it sounds like you've got many, but my best suggestion is to use masterballs on roamers like Thundurus, cause they're time consuming and annoying.

oops i mean i've used ultra balls on most of my pokemon like thundurus and zekrom

whats the best pokemon to use the masterball with? or shoulud i just keep it? seeing i've used a ultraball with thundurus

There is no "best" pokemon to use the master ball on. I personally always use it on roaming pokemon because catching them normally is a massive pain. If you already have the roaming one, just use it on a common pokemon for giggles, as there's no other reason to use it on anything else since ultra balls can catch any other legendary in a reasonable time span.

Err..yeah. Are location eyecatches still present in Black and White? AKA, those images present in FR/LG and HG/SS that appear when you first enter an area. I have a sneaking suspicion that those were removed as well. >.<

Thanks in advance for clarifying this.

Well, true, they're metals in the Periodic Table, but they're also daily supplements we need in our nutritional diets, which is what Pokémon was basing things off of. They're certainly shaped like pills, after all.

Multiplayer battles do not affect the Pokédex, if I recall correctly. Someone correct me on this, but I believe this is the case.

As was mentioned before (I think?), you can ask someone to trade you a Celebii over in the Quick Trade topic in our Trade Corner board. Go to the Wi-Fi Center board, then to the Trade Corner here.

Check the Summary screen of your Pokémon. I believe it's the first flap.

I have the same question. I used a Rare Candy Bar by accident on a Zen Darmantian and I then I killed x_x

So yeah, are there any more Rare Candy Bars?

Which Darumaka here looks like it has the most potential? I don't really understand the IV calculator...

Both are just hatched.

Adamant, Likes to fight
Hidden Power=Ice
12/12, 7,5,4,5,5

Adamant, Likes to thrash about
Hidden Power=Water
12/12, 7,5,4,5,6

I'm looking to EV train it in Attack and Speed. The rest in Defense.

Why so? When I put them in the calculator they turned out the same, even though they look different to me

Well, first of all, assuming they're both level one, the second one has higher speed.
Second, the characteristics for the second one are seemingly better.

"Likes to thrash about" gives the Pokemon a potential 31 IVs in Attack and other stats, whereas "Likes to fight" only gives them potentially 28. Of course, it's possible that the second one only has 25 Attack IVs, and not 31.

To be sure, I would go to the Subway Judge in the Battle Subway, if he says something along the lines of "Can't be better" for the second one, then it has 31 IVs in Attack.

Today while in the dream world, I kept getting "data processing" or "invalid access" errors when trying to do plant berries or befriend Pokémon. It's been happening after almost every other time I play a minigame (and I don't get the Pokemon...). I've also been getting strange errors with Japanese text. This is the first time I've ever experienced these errors. Has anyone else been experiencing this?

I think I had these problems, along with the common registration error, the other day. It seemed to me that logging in and out of the dream world, though it would cost your day's play I think, seemed to fix the issue.

What does Sheer Force + Life Orb actually do? I know Sheer Force cancels Life Orb's recoil, but does it increase attack by 60%? If not, then I don't really see the point of Life Orb with Sheer Force.

From my understanding its a multiplicative effect,

flare blitz + life orb= 156 power
flare blitz + sheer force = 156 power
flare blitz + life orb + sheer force = 202.8 with 0 recoil.
(assuming darmanitan)
flare blitz+ life orb + sheer force + STAB = 304.2 power

So you one shot against anything that doesn't resist it, or doesn't prevent it.

I'm EV training my Prinplup in Special Attack with Litwicks and the Power Lens, but for some reason it only ever gets +2 or +3 in Special Attack when it levels up. Is this normal?

Yes, that is normal. EVs aren't all applied at once as raw stats; it takes time until you reach Lv 100 to spread them out.

Ok, so I currently have about 132 EVs on attack for my Darumaka. Seeing as how I'm edging up on my 152 cap (+100 from proteins) I went and bought 10 proteins to use up. Welllllllll Here's where I'm lost. I tried to use the proteins and it said they wont have any effect, but my Darumaka's EV's aren't maxed yet? Maybe I'm not grasping something about EV training, but could someone please explain? The guide I used is from Serebii.net, I can't post a direct link, but It's on the right side in Mechanics>Effort Values

You should use Vitamins before starting EV training. If I recall correctly, if the Pokemon has 100+ EVs in Attack, then Protein won't have any effect and so on for Defense/Calcium, etc.

The wings are actually quite useless for EV training. They only give 1 point, you have a low chance of getting the wing you need, and it takes a lot longer to get any reasonable amount of them. If you have a few on hand sure use it, but NEVER grind for them, its very inefficient.
