It only forgets moves if it learns a new move to replace it. It only learns moves from leveling in the Daycare. At level 100, it doesn't level. So no, it won't forget anything. :3

why is it that when I progress though the areas that you unlock after beating Ghetsis, the same higher level Pokemon don't give you as much experience?
for example a level 47 Kangaskhan is only giving me 700 exp verses the 3800 exp when I fought a level 47 Kangaskhan the first time

The experience you get changes based on what level your Pokemon is at. It's a new system called diminishing returns that was introduced in this game.

why do they need that? it's kinda stupid if you ask me... and by the way are you sure that's what it's called? nothing relevant comes up on Google when searching "diminishing Returns"

That's because the term means more than something in Pokemon, kind of like if you Google "breeding" the first results won't be about Pokemon. The Pokemon system wasn't specifically named that, but that's the idea behind it, the idea of diminishing returns - a weaker Pokemon gets more exp for defeating the same Pokemon because they put more effort into it. If one Pokemon is fighting the same opponent over and over and over, the returns (exp) from each battle diminish. Therefore, diminishing returns.

You'll probably get much better results if you ask in the check my Pokemon thread which is specifically for checking if Pokemon are hacked or not. If you receive an answer here, however, just remember to post there next time.

How exactly is it not working? Are you connected to a router with WEP or WPA access (depending on your DS)? On a side note, the website is running, so it can't be that.

Run us through the steps you used either way and tell us where exactly the issue is and we'll be able to help you better. :) Make sure you've used game sync otherwise you won't be able to do anything. On the other hand, it could be as simple as email verification (though iirc I don't think they do that). Moving to Quick Questions for now anyway while we wait for your explanation.

Oh I think I see the issue. When you put the Pokemon to sleep you go to the global link website and click Dream World over to the far right (make sure you've logged in on the left first) then within the Dream World Fennel basically explains everything to you. Once you're done, just sign out of the Dream World at the top right of the screen and then repeat the normal process to wake your Pokemon up. But yeah, nothing was occurring because you weren't using the site. XD Have fun using the Dream World now though!

Invalid user? I just created an account to test - do you get to the screen where it says you need to confirm via email? And if so, do you get to the Register With Global Link screen? (and have you entered your game sync ID?)

Actually it might be easier to see the issue if you take a screenshot of the point you're at (you can do this by pressing PrtSc for most computers if you didn't know).

And it's fine @ changing usernames.

Because pokemon is now an korean mmo, nintendo wants to make you grind(excessive battling to go up a level) until your fingers bleed.

Just a quick question. How much of B/W would one miss by only watching the anime? I don't own a DS but still wanna learn as much as I can about the new generation.

Have you logged in on the left side of the Pokemon global link page? Since it doesn't have a remember me box and isn't connected to the main page you need to literally login to that every time, so really you need to login to two pages within the same site. :(

If that's not the issue and you have logged in on the left side, take a screenshot of the Dream World page and we'll see if we can help more from there.

I think you'd learn quite a bit about the new Pokémon, towns and cities just from the anime. The only things you would probably miss are the little details found within the game such as meeting up with your best friends/rivals to battle and stopping the whole Team Plasma and Ghetsis plot (knowing the anime will probably give it a twist, so if you wanted the whole experience of the plot from the in-game, you won't have the best of luck there). You're most likely to find out more about N in the game than they will show how he is in the anime too.

But you have "Who's that Pokémon?" which they brought back in for the anime so you'll be able to catch up on the names of the Pokémon and whatnot. I'm pretty sure the anime will be showing some characters from the game there, so perhaps you'll learn a little about them as well. They have yet to show triple battles and I doubt they will plan on showing rotational battles, so those are also some features you would want to experience in the games than from the anime. :( However I do recommend getting Black or White sometime in the future, and instead of buying a regular DS, I would suggest going with the 3DS since basically all new games are going to come out for that handhold device.

That depends on your team, etc, (and the Pokemon may be used in different ways too) and wifi advice may be better suited for the competitive battling section... I believe though in general Froslass is regarded as better but again it depends on the rest of your team/how you want to use them.

I don't think the musicals are dependent on the choice of Pokemon - there's no 'cool Pokemon category' and so forth to my knowledge. Which may explain why you haven't found such a list. There is a list about the items you can make them wear though (scroll down) and what sort of musical they should be used for.

I don't recall him but he might be just a random NPC with no real purpose besides to entertain. Or confuse. =p

If no one knows, my theory then is he'll have a purpose in a promotion to be revealed later. Either that or he does super Pokemon voice impressions. (not sure which Pokemon sound he's making, though)

New question: when breeding, at what time is the gender of your egg Pokemon determined? When you drop your parent Pokemon at the daycare? When you're given the egg? Or is it only determined right when the egg hatches?
