Best place for that is within in-game team help, most preferably the help sticky up the top. This section is only really for technical questions about the games, rather than team building. If you wanted you could post the team you have right now, or the team you have in mind within that section and get that rated, or post in the sticky once you have a few Pokemon and are unsure about them/what you think would go best with them. :3

A noob question: does damage from statuses such as burn and poison benefit from STAB and/or type weakness?

If you mean would a grass type take double damage from burn/poison, then no. All Pokemon take 1/8 of their max hit points each turn if they are burned or poisoned.

They raise the stat of Pokemon with Guts by 50% (aka like Heracross). So overall, STAB attacks, as well as everything else can be boosted depending on what the Pokemon is.

Facade is also stronger with a status ailment, too.

Unfortunately, you can't get all 3 without cheating right now. However, there's a Keldeo event that's coming up in a few weeks (or months).

This is my first time playing through Black and White. I've played every generation of games but this is the first time for this one.
My starters go as.
Timburr 22
Herdier 23
Darumaka 23
Tranquill 22
Servine 28
Boldore 26

.
even though no one cares or anything my pokemon have all changed and leveled up some. I now have 4 badges.

Mod Note: Guys stop reporting it - in the "title" of this post, the guy says he wants advice for the team. So yes, it is technically a question.

Hey, I have heard that there is a way to manipulate the Pokemon currently swarming, by SRing. If this is true, could somebody tell me how to do it? Thanks!

It was never possible in any game, since the game starts a new swarm (that is set) whenever a new day begins.

Does a Pokemon only gain EVs when they're in battle? What would happen if I gave a Charmander an Exp Share but I didn't switch him into battle at all?

A Pokemon with an exp. share will receive the same EVs as if it was in battle; the EVs are multiplied across Pokemon, not divided.

Idk if that made sense so here's an example haha. You have a Volcarona that's fighting and a Charmander with an Exp Share. You kill a Lillipup. Each one will get 1 Attack EV (Charmander will get 2 if it has Pokerus still).

Well you could go to the move relearner at Mistralton City & re-learn Leech Seed/Synthesis, but other than TMs/Level-Up, you can't really do anything else, since you can't learn Petilil's moves when it's stronger. :x You can always get another Petilil, though!

Thundurus. :) It's a legendary and if you catch it + get a Tornadus, you can get Landorus in the Abundant Shrine.

Is there any reason that it'd take a really long time for my pokemon to wake up from the Dream World? I just got my Zekrom C-Gear skin and i've been waiting for it to wake up for over half an hour. I'm wondering if this is (at all) normal and what I should do if this takes much longer. It is in the "pokemon is waking up" screen and the game hasn't frozen but it's just been there forever. It warns not to turn the power off and I'm guessing that if I do I'll lose the pokemon or something (which i definitely don't want to do since this was a mystery gift pokemon).

Yeah, any responses would be greatly appreciated.

another question. Why is the elite 4 so much harder in this game? Dark, Ghost, Fighting, and whatever the other is. I never prepared for this so almost none of mine are strong except for fighting (cause he's kinda weak). I need some help.

The last type is Psychic (Caitlin).

All you need to do is train your Pokemon up to the levels of the Elite 4, and try to target the Elite 4's weaknesses by giving your Pokemon moves with good coverage.

All of Shauntal's and Caitlin's Pokemon are weak to Dark and Ghost (except for Caitlin's Metagross in the rematch). All of Grimsley's Pokemon are weak to Fighting (except for the rematch, when his Drapion is neutral to it), and all of Marshall's Pokemon are weak to Flying. Those are their basic weaknesses. Some of their Pokemon have other types other than their specialty, so you'll have to find out those weaknesses for yourself.

@Drakes Here are their weaknesses:


In Rematch: Froslass and Drifblim

All of Shauntal's Pokemon are weak to Ghost and Dark. Froslass, Chandelure and Drifblim also share a weakness to Rock.


In Rematch: Sharpedo and Drapion

All of Grimsley's Pokemon (other than Drapion) are weak to Fighting, use Ground attacks against Drapion. Bisharp is 4x weak to Fighting.


In Rematch: Bronzong and Metagross

All of Caitlin's Pokemon (other than Bronzong and Metagross) are weak to Dark and Ghost. Gothitelle, Reuniclus and Musharna are also weak to Bug. Use Fire attacks against Metagross and Bronzong (Bronzong has Levitate).


In Rematch: Breloom and Toxicroak

All of Marshal's Pokemon are weak to Flying and Psychic. Breloom has a 4x Flying weakness while Toxicroak has a 4x Psychic weakness.

And for Alder:



Keep in mind that half his team (Volcarona, Accelgor and Vanilluxe) are weak to Rock. Use Fighting attacks on Bouffalant, Ice on Druddigon and Fire on Escavalier. Volcarona will probably fall easily to Physical-based Rock attacks due to low Defense and a 4x Rock weakness, avoid letting it set up Quiver Dance.

The elite 4 is really really really pissing me off.

Will I get a chance to heal my pokemon before I face Alder? If i even get to after the elite 4?

What level are your Pokémon? If they're underlevelled, you may need to train them to stand a chance at all. Lv60 is probably the bare minimum on the rematches, and even then it's hard.

There aren't any healing chances besides using items.

Based on the way you're talking, it sounds like you're not on the rematches yet, just the storyline? The first time through, you get a heal after the Elite Four iirc. During the rematches, you don't.

i have a question about EV training

for example i want to train a pokemon to have 4HP / 252Atk / 252Spe
starting with a lvl1 jolly pokemon and killing Patrats (+1 atk EV yield)
does this mean i have to kill 252 Patrats (w/o Macho Brace or Power Bracer)?
126 with Macho Brace, or 50 with Power Bracer?

but lets say i give it 10 Proteins (thats 100 EV, right?) so i must kill 152/76/30 Patrats (no item/macho brace/power bracer) to reach the 252Atk?

and is there a way to check the EV's?
