I have Black 2

I am trying to breed a Dratini with Adamant Nature and Perfect IV's in attack

I have a Male Dratini with outstanding potential, and "fantastic" attack, its characteristic is "Proud of its power." And it has an Adamant Nature.

I also have a Female Dratini with "Relatively Superior" potential, and "fantastic" attack, its characteristic is also "Proud of its power." And it's nature is also Adamant.

I know the female has to hold an everstone to pass down the nature to its egg,

I was wondering if I should equip the male with a Power Bracer. I know Power Bracer passes down its holders Attack IV's, but I am not sure how it works exactly. Does Power Bracer ONLY grantee that its best stat will be its attack? Or does it pass down the parents attack stat exactly how it is, "fantastic" which means a pokemon will not hatch with a "it can't better" attack unless the parent too has a "can't be better" attack stat. In other words, all of thee eggs will have a "fantastic" attack stat only.

The Power Bracer simply guarantees that the holder's Attack IV will be passed down.

So does that mean that there is absolutely no chance I would be able to hatch a Dratini with perfect Attack IV's, with the Male Dratini I am currently using, if it holds the Power Bracer?

Yes, if the Dratini that holds the Bracer does not have 31 IVs in Attack, then the offspring cannot have 31 IVs in attack.

Pretty much. By the way, a 30 Attack IV isn't that bad.

N's Pokemon can be found among the wild Pokemon in the area.

They are indicated by a green sparkle animation when you encounter them.

If you haven't seen any yet, you're just unlucky. Be patient and you'll find them eventually.

For memory link, does Black 2 have to sync with White or does it have to be Black? I'm fairly sure it can be either, but I want to make sure. Also, where is the option for memory link? Thanks in advance.

Memory Link can be done with either Black or White. I'm pretty sure that the Memory Link option is at the start-up screen.

Ok I have just beaten Drayden and done the Team plasma thing in Opelucid City (Where it freezes over) and beat Zinzolin. However, my team is horribly underleveled.

Lv 42 Lucario
Lv 41 Ampharos
Lv 41 Jellicent
Lv 42 Zoroark
Lv 42 Vibrava
Lv 48 Serperior

I do not want to change any of my team. I have a Lucky egg and an Exp Share (Egg currently equipped to Vibrava, Exp Share to Jellicent). Could anyone give me any tips on where to train? I want my pokemon to all be at least Lv 55 each by the Elite Four. Thanks for reading!

Have you tried battling Audino in shaking grass? Audino give your Pokemon a huge amount of experience when you defeat them. The higher-leveled Audinos are west of Humilau City (the city on the water with wooden houses) on route 22 near the entrance to the Giant Chasm and the patch of grass above Iccirus City near Dragonspiral Tower. Keep on battling Audino and you'll have your levels boosted in no time! All the best in your adventure!

Icirrus City is only available after beating the Elite Four, just to correct you there.

If you have them, also use the plus Exp pass powers, they'll really shorten the time.

Foul Play only does more damage on opponents with high Attack stats, which is a bit useless.

Crunch is much superior to Foul Play as it has no drawbacks.

Since Gen 5 the mother or father can pass dow the nature at 100% chance if it holds ever stone

Simply put, Foul Play uses the opponent's Attack stat to calculate damage, not Krookodile's. Most Ghost/Psychic 'mons (both types are weak to Dark) have low Attack, making it near useless, making Crunch the better option (as it uses Krookodile's own naturally high Attack). However, Foul Play sees merit in using the high Attack stat of Pokémon that don't resist Dark against them, like Haxorus.

Don't let Foul Play's 95 base power fool you; Crunch is still the reliable Dark STAB to have on Krookodile. Speaking of Foul Play itself, only Sableye and Umbreon can use it effectively, as they lack true offensive presence on their own.

Is there a way I can reduce a pokemon's EV's without berries?

I have come to find that Speed EV's are really important on a Dragonite and Special Defense EV's are pretty useless, the hard way. -.-

I tried paying for "warm makeup" at the Beauty Salon in the Join Avenue but it says my Dragonite is already friendly, so that doesn't work. My Dragonite is lv99 btw

In Join Avenue, the Salon (assuming you hired the right person) has services that clear out a Pokémon's EVs while raising happiness.

Sorry; missed it.

In that case, you'll need to make do with EV-reducing berries. They can be bought from the Pokémon Breeder at Route 5, but you can only buy 1 batch of a random kind of berry from her a day.
