Well they are only on Route 6, Lostlorn Forest and mentioned Pinwheel Forest... so you don't have more choices...

As far as Defense EV Training, the only places that are good all only have 50% encounter rates of the ones you want. Defense is just a rough thing to EV train. :/ If the Pokemon in question is Water/Grass, you can go to Wellspring Cave and fight Roggenrola at a 50% encounter rate, or if it's fire you can go fight Klink/Ferroseed for a combined 49% encounter rate.

Actually, Pinwheel Forest has a 55-60% chance of Sewaddle of Venipede appearing, both of which give +1 DEF afaik.

The restrictions for a random Wi-Fi battle in Generation V are as follows:
  • You must use 3-6 Pokemon.
  • No special Pokemon.
  • No eggs.
  • (Fairly certain) Sky Drop is banned.
  • No moves non-exclusive to Generation V.

The thing that gets most people is the final rule. It means that if a Pokemon cannot learn a move exclusively in Generation V, then it cannot legally have that move in a random Wi-Fi battle. For example, Arcanine can only learn Iron Head in Generation IV, so it can't compete in Generation V. This is especially important when dealing with Pokemon with fairly common TMs that lost their TM status (such as Stealth Rock, Roost, or Avalanche) or Tutor moves that no longer have a Tutor in Black / White (such as Signal Beam or Heat Wave). Cheers.

Thanks but why are some Pokemons moves not allowed? My Blaziken knows thunderpunch since emerald and nearly half my team knows stealth rock.

That's odd. I've heard a lot of people that also claim that there isn't a restriction there. But I guess since MikieJo actually tried it and it didn't work, it must be in place.

Perhaps Game Freak wanted to make Random Matchup more "accessible" to people who are just getting into Pokémon in Generation V, so they're not at a disadvantage compared to people who have earlier generation games?

You can use Generation IV (or older) moves in Pal Pad battles, but not random Wi-Fi.

I've tried to get onto the Dream World site, but it didn't seem to work out, first the page wouldn't load and when it did it couldn't connect to my DS. Do you need wireless Wi-Fi to connect to it? I don't know anything about it.

My family and I want to sell our Wii. Will I still be able to make my Pokemon White connect to Wi-Fi for Dream World, promos, etc? It connects straight to the router, not the Wii, right?

You don't. They were given out through special promotions that are currently Japan only.

Lol, of course it connects through the router. Why would it connect though the Wii? DS WiFi came out like a year before the Wii did...

Moving this to Quick Questions...

But yes, you need a router which can give you wireless wifi, and depending on what DS you have (Lite, Original) you can only access any of Nintendo's wifi with WEP encryption, however if you have a DSi or 3DS, then you can access via WPA encryption, so it just depends on what type of DS you have and whether you use a router or not. As for loading issues, you'll probably need to try Google Chrome, as it tends to have less issues with loading than browsers such as Firefox.

Part of what made me wonder if the Wii was involved was because recently I tried to battle with a friend over Wi-Fi (he lives far away from me) and we got an error and couldn't battle no matter how many times we tried (we could see each other's characters in the room but couldn't connect when we tried battling). I looked up the error code and found this page that corresponds with it. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc...i&locale=en_US
Notice "DS" is in the URL and it seems to discuss it for DS, but it talks about setting up a Wi-Fi connection with the Wii. I'm still confused about this.

You misunderstood, that error code also occurs on the Wii. Try this page: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc...s&locale=en_US

That's just an annoying Black and White WiFi quirk. It happens to me all the time when I try to trade around here. To fix it, just have both players exit and reenter the WiFi room. You may have to do this multiple times for it to work, but I've had about a 90% success rate with it.

Unity Tower is an island off the coast of Unova. It is accessible from the Castelia City piers after registering yourself on the GeoNet (the globe in the Pokemon Center) and trading with a player from another country. In the Unity Tower, there are 130 floors that house up to 20 players (5 players max per floor) that you have traded with, but aren't in your region. It is mainly there for flavor.

If you wanted something similar to the Battle Tower, there is the Battle Subway in Nimbasa City.

Hi all! I must admit my question is not an easy one as it has to do with the RNG. I sifted through heaps of "guides" and downloaded countless programs for hours upon hours today and it really just still seems to be in a different language to me. So I ask, could somebody out there please do the legwork for me and determine the simplified steps I need to take to create a flawless timid larvesta from my two flawless parents?

If you more experienced players feel up to the challenge PM me, I will give you any and all information you require via this venue.

You will be rewarded upon succesful completion with: [A level 100 EV'ed Tornadus with Pokerus], [A level 43 Adamant Perfect IV Ditto with Pokerus], and [A level 77 Sassy EV'ed ferrothorn with stealth rock, leech seed, and Pokerus].

The reward is negotiable, if you want anything more just let me know!
(I apologize in advance if there is a better thread to put this message into, please let me know which one it could be)

Do you know what your Parameters are? Do you have the latest version of the RNG reporter? Do you want the Larvesta to be shiny? If you don't have your parameters, go to my guide in the FAQ and follow the steps to finding your parameters. If you want it to be shiny, find your SID (using pokecheck, or an AR), and follow the rest of my guide (make sure that both of your parents are indeed flawless, using pokecheck or an AR). If you don't want it shiny, PM/VM me once you find your parameters.

This has happened to me multiple time when playing Pokemon White. I usually save two or three times before turning my DS off, but every so often it'll be like I didn't save and I start in a random place near where I last saved! This is espesically annoying after training pokemon for a few levels. My friends also say this happens to them but it seems not as much as me.

Has this happened to anyone else and how can you avoid it?
