I had a thread about this but it got closed without the answer I needed....I asked how to get Thunderous in black version because when I go to GTS trade or w.e I can deposit the pokemon I'm trying to trade, but thunderous isn't an option for pokemon I want. Why is that?

That's cause you have to see it on your dex for it to appear on GTS. Just trade for it in Wifi Club.

That's why you add peoples friend codes. And give them your own. That is how Wifi Club works. I suggest make a request for a Thunderous here Quick Trade Thread. You do have have Pal Pad correct? If so your friend code should be listed in there.

How do I get new characters for my Black City ?

It seems everytime I play the entralink with my brother, I can't "steal" his characters anymore ;__;

ty
You can have a maximum of 45 characters in Black City. Try playing with another White Forest. You can only have 12 Trainers.

Check Smogon for its articles, it explains everything about competitive Pokémon.

Those are general terms for competitive play.

A Sweeper is a Pokémon which is designed to kill a lot of stuff very quickly, like Weavile or Alakazam. Weavile would be a Physical Sweeper and Alakazam a Special Sweeper, as those are the category of moves they specialise in respectively.

A lead is a Pokémon to be sent out first whch sets up moves like Stealth Rock or Toxic Spikes for later on in the game. Usually, anyway. There are some variants or anti-Leads, which are Pokémon that can carry Taunt for example to stop these leads from working properly.

A Staller is a Pokémon which stays alive for a long time to whittle down HP or PP. For example, an Umbreon with Protect, Toxic, Wish and Payback is a good Staller because it can stay alive for a long time.

There are many other terms too, so feel free to ask if you need more help.

Sorry if this sounds stupid, I'm just now getting back into Pokemon. I want to collect legit shinies, and I was planning on catching them by soft resetting. Is that all I need to do; soft reset? I've heard a lot about RNG, but it's a bit confusing. If I were hunting for a shiny legendary, is the only thing I have to do soft reset until I see it shiny?

It would take a very, very long time with soft resetting, considering the shiny rate is less than .000125%, literally. If you wanted to, though, you could soft reset for a shiny legendary, especially with all the standing ones around in B/W (Kyurem, Cobalion/Virizion/Terrakion, Tornadus). RNGing is kind of complicated, but you can Google it and get some good guides. Once you set it up once, it's never really hard again.

But is RNG used for capturing shiny wild Pokemon or hatching eggs? Or both?

You CAN rng for eggs technically but I haven't seen it done, only capturing. It actually works best on legendaries. Basically how it works is you get the program, note what time you started the game, and catch a Pokemon and find its IVs. You then fill that into the program and it give you back your "initial seed", which is different for each game/cartridge combination. After that, you search for what you want, and it gives you a certain time to set your DS to, any buttons you have to press while it's loading, and what frame it is, stuff like that, and then you do what it says and it should be what you want. That only applies for IVs though, for shininess you need another game-specific code called your SID which is kind of hard to get.

Thanks for the help. Kind of sounds like cheating to me though.

It's considered legit in mostly every circle, but you're free not to use it if you don't feel right (: I don't personally RNG myself, I just know a lot about it.

So are all these things disputed as cheating; Soft Resetting, RNG, IV's, and EV's?

None of those are. I feel weird about RNGing myself, but it's considered a legitimate way to get good Pokemon. IVs, EVs, and soft resetting are most certainly not cheating.

How can it not be considered cheating if EV's and IV's are hidden, and with RNG you're doing the same thing an outside source could do, like action replay, just in a more time consuming and less expensive way?

EVs and IVs are considered a game mechanic, and you can calculate them without modifying any code whatsoever. I personally use a calculator online to find out what my IVs are, and EVs I do by hand. RNGing is also just abusing ingame mechanics. An AR actually changes the code within the game, which is why it's considered cheating. However, there are a few AR codes which people generally accept that don't change the code at all, like the IV/EV checker codes.

Well since we're on the subject. What are IV's and EV's and how how do I find out what my pokemon has?

Is there someone or something I can talk to that can tell me how many eggs I've hatched?
