had a quick horde question. currently hunting a gligar with HA now do each individual pokemon in the horde always have the same ability or do they all have different ones? just trying to save time instead of using toxic on each one to see if they have HA.
Gligar's hidden ability is Immunity, which changes to Poison Heal when it evolves into Gliscor.

A good trick I recommend in this case is using Toxic on all of them and if it says "It doesn't affect Gligar..." that confirms it will have Immunity and will be the one you want to get. If you want to summon hordes quickly make sure you have something that knows Sweet Scent, a good candidate for that is Illumise which you can easily catch on Route 7. Oddish (found in the tall grass on Route 6) can also learn it via level-up.

Also, in hordes not all the Pokemon may share the same ability. They will still have their normal abilities most of the time so hunting for hidden abilities in hordes can take time. Another strategy I saw mentioned is using a move that changes abilities like Worry Seed or Entrainment, it'll show their ability before it gets changed so that way you could help spot the hidden ability. Also remember that not every horde is guaranteed to have one Pokemon in it with the hidden ability, it's something that takes time.

For Celebi, you'll wanna use one of these 2 sets:

-Celebi w/Leftovers
Nature: Calm
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP, 236 Sp.Defense, 20 Speed
Moves: Recover, Giga Drain/Psychic, U-Turn, Perish Song/Thunder Wave

-Celebi w/Leftovers:
Nature: Calm
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP, 192 Sp.Defense, 64 Speed
Moves: Baton Pass, Recover, Giga Drain/Psychic, Calm Mind/Substitute

Milotic isn't exactly meant for an offensive role. Tanking is what it does best, but you could try this:

-Milotic w/Flame Orb
Nature: Modest
Ability: Marvel Scale
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Sp.Attack, 4 Defense
Moves: Scald, Recover, Protect, Ice Beam/Toxic

Nope to all of those. Also as another bizarre thing that happened today, a Feraligatr somehow beat my Rayquaza, and the Feraligatr was not scarfed. It's annoying relying on base stats for answers when they really seem to be meaningless.

Are you sure you EV trained your Pokemon? Either that or your opponent never cared about EVs, IVs and natures in the first place.

No to Flame Orb Milotic. Flame Orb eats away at its health and can wear it down fast, even with Recover:
-Surf/Hydro Pump
-Ice Beam/Dragon Pulse
-Hidden Power (Electric/Grass)
-Recover
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 HP/252 SAtk/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb
Ability: Marvel Scale/Competitive

Defensive Milotic should look like this:
-Scald
-Ice Beam
-Toxic/Dragon Tail/Haze
-Recover
Nature: Bold
EVs: 248 HP/252 Def/8 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Marvel Scale

If this is for Showdown or PC's battle server, the name you typed in, if not already taken, will appear in the upper right corner of the screen. Does it let you battle after you punch in the name?

Not sure if this'll help, but try registering your name first by clicking on the gear icon. Then, hit look for battle. If this doesn't work, try clearing your cookies and cache. Good luck!

Chansey, Blissey, Tentacruel, Gastrodon, and Jellicent all make good special-walls. Oh, and also Latias. Almost forgot about that one. xD" For mixed-walls, try either Ferrothorn or Jirachi. If you like, you may go with Cresselia, too, as well as Porygon2. Another would be Quagsire. With Unaware, you could stall almost all stats-boosters as much as you wish.

Use Superpower for the sheer power. Use Brick Break if you hate Superpower's stat drops and/or you can't be bothered transferring a Superpower Scizor over from B2/W2. Superpower is still preferred, though.

Both have their merits. Trace gives Porygon2 utility by copying an opposing ability, which could make it easier for it to check an opponent. Since Porygon2 tends to move last most of the time, Analytic makes its attacks stronger if it does move last.

Analytic is a DW/Hidden Ability, so it may not be easy to get. Trace is easier to get, as it's one of Porygon2's primary abilities.

Tyranitar should stick to physical moves only. It should only use special moves for specific targets.

I suggest you go for a mixed set.

Tyranitar (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Hasty Nature (+Spd, -Def)
- Ice Beam
- Fire Blast
- Crunch
- Stealth Rock

This one's a lead. Fire Blast allows it to hit Steel types like Skarmory, Forretress, Ferrothorn, etc. Ice Beam OHKOs Gliscor, 2HKOs Donphan and deals a lot of damage to other Ground and Dragon types.

If the Day-Care Man says this phrase, "The two don't seem to like each other.", this means that the pair is less likely to produce an egg. This applies to Pokemon that you own. As a result, it's highly recommended that both parents have different ID numbers or have 2 Pokemon of the same species for effective breeding. In this case, the Day-Care Man will say "The two seem to get along."

But the day-care man says they're getting along very well, and their ID's are two completely different ones, but there's still no egg there!

This was a bad joke my friend and I were trying out. The joke was that I had the incense in real life, not the game.

Thank you, PlatinumDude for giving an honest answer and trying to help.
