Calm down, dude...

Anyway, Illusion only works if Zoroark is in the 1st-5th team slots. It fails if Zoroark is in the 6th team slot.

Let's clarify this.

Zoroark always takes the illusion of the last Pokémon in the party. Thus, if you are carrying "n" Pokémon, Zoroark will take the form of the "n"th Pokémon when sent out. If Zoroark is itself the "n"th Pokémon, it retains its own form.

Coincidentally, the Smash episode showed this off very well this week. Two of the people battle and one has a Zoroark that comes out without an illusion.

I'm new to competitive battling, so forgive my naivete.

I notice there's options for lvl 50 and lvl 100 battling. So, if I choose lvl 50 and use a PKMN that I leveled up to 100 in-game, will all of its stats reflect what they were at lvl 50 in-game? And if I use a lvl 70 PKMN against one that was leveled to 100 in game, will my PKMN's stats be raisedto what they would be at 100? I'm just confused.

Could you elaborate?

For example, I IV bred and EV trained my Kingdra to have high Special Attack. If I enter a level 50 room with it being level 73, will those stats become void? To clarify, if I were fighting another Kingdra in a lvl 50 room at lvl 73 but it didn't have the EVs or IVs mine has, would we be equal or would I still have an advantage?

Also, is it even worth leveling my team to 100 if we're all equal in the Wifi battle anyway?

So if you had your EV trained Kingdra at lv73 and entered the lv50 room. The Kingdra would have the stats of a Kingdra with the same EVs at level 50. So if you were battling the same Kingdra with no EVs, yours would have higher stats.

Is it worth leveling my Pokemon to 100 or a very high level before entering then? What are the benefits if we're all the same level - ignoring IVs and EVs?

Nothing really, if you are doing a battle where your levels will be changed then it wouldn't matter in the end.

So essentially, the only reason to level up a PKMN for competitive battles is to get specific moves?

This is likely my last question regarding this, so thank you for your time.

Yes pretty much. Unless you are doing a battle where all the levels stay at what they are, then you'll need to level up.

Thank you. One last question (sorry): are Rating battles done the same way with each Pokemon at 50?

Just make sure your Pokémon are at least lv50. A level 1 Pokémon like an Aron using the Endeavor set will stay level one.

So any Pokemon below lvl 50 will stay at that level, or is that just Aron?

Any Pokémon, Aron was an example because it is sometimes used.

Can someone please explain to me how my Starmie with full EV and IV in Speed somehow wasn't able to attack first on a Haxorus? There's no possible way Haxorus could have higher Speed than my Starmie at level 50, and it used Outrage.

I think it might have been holding a Choice Scarf. It increases your base speed stat by 50%, after all, so that would be enough to outspeed even the fastest Starmie if its speed only gets enhanced from EVs and IVs.

Geodude (36), Graveler (42), Golem (42), Onix (38/16), Steelix (38/16), Roggenrola (30), Boldore (36), Gigalith (36), Dwebble (24), and Crustle (24).

Note: Onix and Steelix learn it at level 38 in BW, but 16 in B2W2. I know this is for BW but I thought I'd just throw it in.

To add, Stealth Rock came back as a move tutor in B2/W2 in Nacrene City, though you have to pay 10 Green Shards for the tutor to teach the move.

So I am doing a play through of W2 with the Eveelutions as my team. I have them all except Umbreon and Espeon. So I was wondering if there was a way to get those 2 at level 1-5ish? Just as an FWI my action replay doesn't work and I don't do hacks.

Demons run, but count the cost
the battle's won, but the child is lost.

If you can manage to get your hands on enough of the EV lowering berries that also raise their friendship, it can be done. Or you could trade with other people in the Trade Shops.
