Well, if her uncle runs the shop outside, then...wouldn't that make the guy running the shop her uncle? It's been a long time since I got to that point in FRLG though, so my memory is really rusty.

I decided to do some EV training for the first time and I came across a shiny Gastly!!!

I put my Ditto and Gengar in daycare and hatched the egg. I EV-trained the lvl 5 Gastly (Which is now lvl 19) and then I encountered the shiny Gastly. So my question is...

The Gastly I was EV-training has gotten 45 EVs(In special attack).
If I..
1) Level EVGastly to 25 without encountering pokemon that would give me Special Attack-EVs
2) Level ShinyGastly to level 25 and getting exactly 45 Special Attack-EVs

Will one of them be stronger than the other or will they be the same?
Will they have the same Special-Attack stats?(Maybe a liittle different due to IV)

--Right now--
My slightly EV-trained-Gastly:
Level: 19
Hp: 42
Attack: 18
Defense: 18
Sp.ATK: 55
Sp.DEF: 22
Speed: 38

Shiny-Gastly:
Level: 18
Hp: 41
Attack: 21
Defense: 17
SP.ATK: 41
SP.def: 17
Speed: 37

Could you tell me the natures of the Gastly, It'll help a bunch.

EVGastly: +spc.atk -defense
ShinyGastly: +speed -defense

Does nature increase the positive one(like EVGastly -> +spc.atk) on level-up? Or is it like a constant value

Am I supposed to fight Team Magma somewhere and confront Groudon too?

Yes, there's a big Dive area on the route south of Mossdeep. Dive there and keep going south, and you'll eventually find a cave you can go into and resurface. There will be another cave you have to go through and fight Team Magma. You'll need Strength and Rock Smash down there. This is, of course, assuming you just beat Tate and Liza. If you haven't done that yet, you need to do so before going with what I said, lol. If you don't have Dive, you can get it from Steven in the house above the Pokemon Center in Mossdeep.

Nature increases the positive stat by 10% and decreases the negative by 10%.

Unfortunately your shiny Gastly has very low IVs and is comparatively weak. Your other Gastly has the chance of being flawless in SP Attack however.

You need to have Dive and the 7th badge, the dive and find the room with the submarine. Team Magma will be there, defeat them and Groudon will go to Sootopolis City. Catch it or defeat it (you should totally catch it though) and then you can get the 8th badge, go and beat the Champion. And be a happy birdy.

You can get Latios in the post game. That's the only roamer though. I'd save my Master Ball for it. ;)

Just keep in mind that due to a glitch, all roaming Pokémon have bad IVs.

Quote:
The roaming IV glitch is a glitch in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed and LeafGreen that causes roaming Pokémon to have extremely low IVs. The glitch is not present in Pokémon Emerald.
In Generation III, the data for a Pokémon's IVs are stored in a 32-bit integer. However, when a roaming Pokémon is captured, only the last eight bits are transferred. While the HP IV is unaffected, the Pokémon can only have a maximum Attack IV of 7. The other IVs will always be 0.

Yup, it's the only one. Latias in Sapphire, and Latios in Ruby.

I am trying to evolve a Golbat and i was just wondering what 60% bonding was when you go see the freindship check lady in vanderturf town? It would be awesome if someone knows this.

I have no idea what 60% bonding is, but if you're trying to evolve it, the lady should say something like, "It adores you! It can't possibly love you anymore. I even feel happy seeing it." That's max happiness and it should evolve after gaining a level if she says that.

To evolve Pokémon via happiness you have to get them to a happiness level of 220 or more. One you hit 200-254, the person in Vedanturf will say "It seems to be very happy. It obviously likes you a whole lot."

EV reducing berries can help build up happiness quickly too.

You need to get the Secret Key from the burned mansion to get into the gym. Then after you beat Blaine, you can go to One Island and whatnot.

Yes. Zigzagoon can SURF. Poochyena can't Surf. I mean come on. A SURFING rodent! Linoone is better though since it can get Strength, and that being said, Linoone is a better HM slave than Mightyena as well. You can give it every HM except Flash, Waterfall, and Dive.

edit: OMG IT CAN'T FLY EITHER LMAO but it can have half the hms not bad right n___n

Yes you do, Dive is needed to reach Sootopolis for the first time (you can fly to it afterwards) while Waterfall is used in Victory Road.

You need dive to reach Sootopolis City and to get to the submarine Team Magma/Aqua stole. For Waterfall, you'll only need it once during the main story and that's to get to the entrance of Victory Road.

What I like to do is save some really good TMs till after Victory Road, or reteach level up moves with Heart Scales I didn't use and have no further plans for in post game. I don't like to take HM slaves with me in Victory Road, cause my team can use all the extra exp they can get. So I teach them the HMs I need for Victory Road (Rock Smash, Strength, Surf). You can also use Flash in there, which I'd recommend if it's your first playthrough or if you haven't done RSE Vic. Road in a long time. Waterfall isn't necessary, but there is a route in there that requires it. You don't have to take that route though.

And once you get out of there, you can delete those HM moves and teach the TMs you saved or reteach any level up moves you got rid of with some Heart Scales. That's just my personal strategy though, so use whatever feels good for you. :)
