It doesn't necessarily have to be American and Japanese but breeding two Pokemon from different languages gives you a 1/2048 of getting a shiny.

I was wondering will this pokemon GL have a protection against players who used Action replay. I dont like the ideas where players cheat to increase their pokemon stats.

I decided in this game I would try to EV train Pokemon and make an attempt at the metagame, but I've never done it before. I've been trying to read up on it, and wanted to make sure I was doing this right before I began.

So if I want 255 in two random stats for a Pokemon, is this right? I go train my Pokemon on the one that Serebii says gives the stats, then once it gains every EV, I can Audino grind to get it to level 100. Not like I have instant access to rare candies or anything, and I'll probably be exp. sharing it until I get it high enough to not be required to.

I'm not really sure - I don't think they can control that, but I merged with Simple Questions to see if someone can give you a straight answer. :)

Actually I think it's changed in this game, I was ev'ing my Meinshao (Or however you spell it) and his stats were going up each time I received Ev points, I think it adds on when you defeat the Pokemon, cause when he leveled up he only got +3 in speed. \:

Ev reducing berries are only from the Dream World or cheating.
yeah in BW stats are recalculated at the end of every battle, NOT during level up. But I think I've killed at least 100 roggenrola by now and stats only went up by 1 defense the entire time, so I don't know what the problem is D:


and repeating my previous question: does the EV multiplying effect last after pokerus goes away?

Yes there will be protection against cheaters. Although players may be able to still use AR to alter their Pokemon they will not be able to use them online or interact with any other players with the edited Pokemon.

I've been looking for TM26 for ages now, serebii says its on the first floor of the relic castle as soon as you enter but I can't seem to find it. I've check through places like where volcarona is but I still can't find it. :(

Go on the way to Volcarona and go in different rooms you will reach a pathway that goes to some stairs. Once you reach the top you find Earthquake.

So I will be living in Japan for another few months before moving back to the UK, but after a nostalgia trip I want to play pokemon again. There are loads of questions re: region compatibility in the FAQ, but they don't answer my specific question:

if I use a compatible DS system (Japanese DSi or UK DS) with a Japanese version of the game, BUT I PLAY IN THE UK, can I do everything I normally could?

i saw there were cross-generation language limitations, but can my japanese black/white trade with an english black/ white? i also want to take full advantage of wifi connectivity, will that still be okay?

thanks!

Merged with Simple Questions. I know the Japanese versions can trade with the English versions, butttt not too sure about the top one, so leaving that for someone else to answer.

I Wi-Fi trade with people from all over the world, including Japan with Japanese names, so you'll be fine.

Hello, I was wondering how I get people from a Black City in my White Forest. I've used the Entralink with my Pokemon Black game but none have appeared in my White Forest. I have finished the Pokemon League in both games and have gone to both places if that matters.

Thanks in advance.

It might be that the japanese players, playing from japan, have some sort of slightly different connectivity which their game is configured for so i won't be able to use it in the uk. But if i can trade between the different games with 2 DSs as Forever said, if worse comes to worst i can just buy an english copy later. Thanks!

I just hope the network will figure out if players are using action replay to maxout stats, and punish them by turning their pokemon to "bad eggs"

@vaporeon: Actually, they don't. They changed things with Black & White. Instead of making 4 RNG calls for international breeding, it now makes SIX. So the chances hae gone from 4/8192 (1/2048) to 6/8192, or ~1/1366.

@Toujour: That's correct, but you don't want 255 in two stats. The most stat boosts that can be on one stat is 63 point, or 252 EVs. So if you put those extra 3 on two already maxed out stats it's a waste. Instead, you can put 252 in 2 stats, and 6 in another.

@Moon_light: It does. Active Pokerus only means that it can be transferred. once it switches to passive Pokerus (smiley face) it can't be transferred. But any Pokemon with EITHER version of Pokerus gets the EV boost.

@Dominiku: Yes, nothing changes. I've been playing my Japanese White in America, and I've done Entralink stuff (even with English games), gotten on the Dream World, gotten Wi-fi events, etc. The only difference will be whether or not you read Japanese.

@Vaporeon again: Go to the Entralink. Take a misson you don't mind failing, but one that has a big time limit. Warp to the player's White Forest. (It has to be the opposite game from you!) There should be NPCs you can talk to there. Talk to them and they'll warp to your game.

Not complaining about this but why can we use TM's more than once now? It's cool but curious why.

Yes. Once they lose the pkrs status they still get the extra EVs, they just cannot pass the pokerus on to other pokemon in your party or PC.

Having TMs reusable is just another addition for Black and White. I'm guessing GameFreak realized how annoying it may have been to continue buying the TMs in the game or trading for the same one you've already used once. I find this quite helpful now, anyway. xD;

Hi guys,
so i havent bought either one yet, and was wondering what your opinions are.
I was wondering which one would be best for competitive playing, and what starter is looking to be the best.
Thanks

As far as I know, Black would be better for competitive play, because you have Black City. Thus, more trainers to EV train on (I heard there are a lot of good ones). As for starter, a lot of people say Samurott is the best of the three (though it's outclassed by some of the other water starters like Swampert), but I'll let someone who knows the more competitive side of B/W answer that question.

Not sure about Dream World.

What is the reason for White Forest/Black City having no pokemon or trainers...I get there and the place is empty save for the house with the 2 Triple Battles, The Pokemon Center, and some random dude in the top right....Why is it like that.

You either messed around with your DS clock or never clicked on any of the people. The people in Black City and White Forest disappear after a while if you don't click on them.
