Is there a company that carries foreign language ds games in the united states? Or do I need to check ebay in foreign markets? Any advice, or suggestions?

I found my Japanese White Complete In Box on ebay for a reasonable price. Amazon also has some foreign games. As with anything online, you have to search and find the best price for what you want.

I've gotten games from both ebay and Amazon. Prices were fairly the same I think if you want the games brand new. Just do a bit of research like EV said to see what's fits your budget. :)

Thanks guys. I will certainly do my research. I have my birthday coming up next month, and I think I need to find a way to hint to my wife that she needs to get me another game....

Well, last night I didn't get to play long before my battery died, but I did get my second starter! Interestingly I got a female Charmander on the first try. I did a double take even after I saved my game I was second guessing and thinking I imagined it.

Hello. Could some one please teach me the art of breeding for Gen VI.
I'm looking to make a Froakie with perfect IV's
What would I have to do to become a master breeder?

For those of you that are doing a lot of breeding...apparently when a parent holds "Destiny Knot" it causes the child to inherit 5 random IVs instead of 3. Serebii confirmed, etc.

WOW! That is one way to make RNGing a lot less neccessary. Once we have access to transporter and can send perfect Ditto's into the game we can start breeding perfect/near perfect in Gen VI!

Does anyone know if the rumor I heard of hidden abilities now being able to be inherited from a male pokemon are true? And if so does that now work when breeding with a Ditto? I saw somewhere yesterday(can't find link) that someone claimed to have bred a Torchic in VI that had speed boost.

Interesting... does that mean there is a list of base stats on the new Pokemon then?

I got every nature for Synch Ralts except Quirky (but who needs Quirky anyways haha) so I'll be using them to capture Dittos. If I get doubles you can have them Griffy :p I have tons of extra Ralts with Synchronize if anyone needs them too. Bred almost 3 boxes full D: Wonder what else will help breeding especially there probably won't be RNG for a long while.

Oh, good. Thanks EV. I don't think I'll be catching Ditto for a LONG time so I'll need any doubles you may get.

Probably. Just too much excitement over the new generation. I do not trade often in any generation(except amongst my own games of course) because I have very limited time online, so coordinating a time to trade is next to impossible.

I am still working on capture/breeding projects on Gen III, AND I am about to reset my extra copy of Platinum so I can RNG a fancy looking Trainer ID (followed by pretty much a speed run, and RNGing every legendary in the game). So trust me, there's people PLAYING Gen IV and V still, and I suspect that until (if it ever is) the encryption is broken in Gen VI and we can RNG in the new games, that people will be doing a lot of breeding and capturing in Gen IV and V still so they can migrate perfect IV combinations forward for breeding.

Any input appreciated if someone wants to help me pick my next RNGed Trainer ID. I want something "geeky". My Black Trainer is named Rush and has 02112 as the ID(after the classic album by the band Rush, "2112"). My White is named Farrah and has 42042 as the ID (Named for Amy Farrah Fowler from Big Bang theory... and not only is "42" the answer to Life the Universe and Everything" from "Hitchhikers Guide" it is also Amy Farrah Fowler's apt number.). My extra copies I always set the player character to a girl, so I am looking for a geeky girl name, along with a number to match. I'm having total lack of inspiraction at the moment on this one, and I'm giving myself a few days to think of the perfect one. [FYI: I RNG Trainer ID's only for vanity purposes, I do not need it to help me hit a specific shiny spread]

Now back to my little adventure in X/Y...

Gosh breeding is so hard without having access to my Ditto's from BW2 :( Luckily I've gotten someone with Ditto in their FS so it should be a bit easier.

Gonna start with a Fennekin, so far I've gotten a modest Fennekin with 31 SpA IVs, complete luck though with that. At least it's a start. :P

If I get this Fennekin nailed down I'm gonna start on breeding baby mega Pokemon. :]

Not knowing how long before I would get a Ditto is why I had patience to soft reset for a female starter. Took two resets on Y for a female.... followed by two hours of resetting for my female Charmander. On X I hit both starters female on the first try, which made the other attemt feel more worth it.

Anyone here try out Wonder Trades yet? I figured I would get crap and just hoped it would be foreign language crap. Got ok stuff, but so far in English. Wish you could cancel a trade upon seeing country of origin but before seeing what you are getting. Oh, well. It is a fun little toy.

I do not think the kids who ask for thosr know they are impossible. It will always happen.

How do you know the iv's are horrible? Do you know the base stats on our new pokes?

Whoever's got them Ditto in their FS, I would love their friend code.

But no, IVs are IVs, not base stats. Even a crappy Caterpie can have awesome IVs. In the Pokemon Center at the same town where the Safari is at, there's a guy on the left who tells you if a Pokemon has good or bad IVs. I have several Pokemon with triple 31s as well as a few with "Outstanding" IVs. Now the trick is to get them to pass the right IVs.

Right. Sorry to confuse my question. What I was getting at was that one would need to know the base stats to do the math to know what your IV's are. Back in Gen III I had a notebook that I kept track of what stats needed to look like at Level 5(remember eggs hatching at Level 5 instead of Level 1?) and at Level 10(i.e. after five rare candies) so that I could narrow down IV's a tiny bit. I was used to doing math the hard way, but I also had an hour commute in the AM by city bus, and at the end of the day had between a 3 hour and five hour wait for my other half to get out of work to drive me home... so I was spending a LOT and I mean a LOT of time doing the math, and base stats were what I used to narrow down my IV's.

So is this like the IV teller in the battle frontier on Emerald? I was pretty used to his help.

Patience is a virtue... here is one of my Gen III breeding projects from before I knew how to RNG:

(fyi: I am probably more proud of this lovely lady than any other Pokemon I have bred or captured in any generation.)

This is my problem. My Ditto and Fennekin have about 4 flawless Ivs between them. I just need to destiny knot breed and hope for the best.

Oh. No, I was breeding Shellos. Their base stats are already known. So I was just using the IV checking man to figure out what IVs I managed to hit and now I'll have to train them and use Metalkid's calculator to figure out the exact IVs. And yeah, it's the same thing as the one in Emerald and following games. Serebii might have figured out some of the base stats of some of the new stuff so there's that to look forward to.

Psst. Look what I got.

31/x/31/31/31/x

Onto the next conquest!

Awsome Griffy!

Can't wait to get that far. I am still on the first gym with both my games. Not finding much time to play, but when I do I am kind of savoring my adventure (not to mention my excessive soft resetting for a female Charmander).

Just got into some breeding on Y. :D Finished this tonight:

Jolly Shroomish w/ Quick Feet
31/31/31/x/31/31
- Bullet Seed

Only took about 90 eggs, and getting really lucky with the DW passing. >.>

I'll probably be giving away some of the other ones I didn't get semi-flawless in the QTT. Also have a few with the same IV spread that are Poison Heal I'll probably get rid of.



Next on my list, Protean Froakie.
