Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

How do you recognize a shiny Pokemon?

I haven't ever seen one (I guess) but I've been wondering if I actually have, and just didn't know it was. I mean, the image I get is a sparkling blingbling filled pink thingy but... yeah. It probably isn't like that. I think I've seen pictures of a shiny Purrloin which looked awesome but I'm not sure.

Actually, it's pretty close to that. You'll know when you see a shiny (if you ever do). The encounter is pretty much the same as any normal encounter except the Pokémon will be a different color and there will be some sparkles (accompanied with a sound effect). There are loads of shiny videos on youtube if you want to see for yourself what they look like or learn to do RNG abuse.

Can I get patches of grass to appear in my White Forest by syncing with another player of White? I know it works by syncing with someone playing Black and visiting their Black City via Hi-Link, but will it work if I sync with another player of White? I know one person who plays White but no one who plays Black, and I want to be able to catch the Pokemon exclusive to White Forest. The writers of the games made this so inconvenient.

Nope, you can only gain more people in your White Forest by linking up with Pokemon Black and visiting their Black City and inviting people to join you.

Sorry if this has been asked before but are Victini and Zoroark considered legendaries/ubers?

Don't know what tier either are considered competitively, but Victini is a legendary and Zoroark is not.

In-game Victini is considered Uber, which means you can't use it in the Battle Subway, random Wi-FI matches. Zoroark is definitely not legendary/uber.

As for (Smogon's) competitive tiers, they are both not considered to be in the Uber tier. In fact, they are both in the "Underused" tier if I recall correctly.

After you've beaten the main game you can catch Pokemon from the older gens, is there a full list of all the Pokemon that you can catch in BW? I mean, I doubt there's all Pokemon from every previous gen?

// Thank you for the answers!

Yes, you can catch previous generation Pokemon after the main story has been completed, in the east side of Unova. I don't think there's really a list of them. I guess your best bet is to use the Pokearth on Serebii to check the routes and such that you're on.

Is there a better competitive gender for your pokemon? I was once told that females were preferable since most attract users were also female, therefore displaying an immunity. Is choosing boy or girl for your team members a whole lot more than just preference?

Well you said it yourself. Most Attract users are female... so if you want counter against them just make your team females.
If you don't care about them just go with anything you catch =D

No because cloning is just duplicating the data, it is not editing or varying it any way to make it hacked and or edited.

As long as your cloning method does not alter the data of the Pokémon, they will pass hack checks.

Just to play it safe, I wouldn't use AR on your game at all if you're going to be entering a competition.

Breeding mechanics are slightly different than in Gen IV, so yeah, you can. I don't see why you'd want to though, since it's faster to just to bike around and continuously get new eggs.

You can't, really. \; You could try asking someone who has an AR.

Vital Spirit prevents a pokemon from sleeping in battle and outside of battle it increases your chances of meeting higher lvled pokemon.

Insomnia prevents sleep for both pokemon in battle (I think), but has no effects outside of battle.

The effect is pretty much the same, but Vital Spirit is mostly for Fighting types (and a few others, but mostly pretty tough Pokémon, exterior wise), and Insomnia is more seen with nocturnal Pokémon (mostly dark, psychic, and so on).

Also, it decreases the chance of encountering high lvl Pokémon by 50%, instead of increasing.

What I've just tried doing is going to that battle challenge place near the stadium town which would bring the lvl.1 pokemon to lvl.50 and then recording their stats and inputting it into the Serebii Calculator, would this provide accurate enough calculation?

I don't think they would be 100% accurate, but surely more accurate then when you calculate it on a lvl. 1 Pokémon.
