Quick Questions


Do you need help with the games? Ask here! I'm sure most of you can help each other out as you play through the games. This thread is also for any questions relating to the Dream World, so ask your questions here instead of making a thread in the actual forum. If you want, you are allowed to repost your questions from the last thread.

As a note, if you want to know how well a Pokemon fares in battle, how to make a Pokemon the best it can be, or how to design a nice team, then that best fits in In-Game Team Help's Team.


Helpful Links

  • Do you need team help? Ask for it here. However, you can ask for very basic/simple in-game (non-competitive) team help here if you don't have enough information to post in the In-Game Team Help subforum.

I bought a 3DS and gave Pokemon Y a shot. I liked it so much I bought Pokemon Black and Black 2. A neighbor told me I can't get Keldeo from the games themselves. He said Keldeo was one of a few that was given as a Gamestop Event only ... but he knew someone who was selling a Gamestop Keldeo Event cartridge.

Before I buy it, I have a few questions that my neighbor wasn't sure about. Hopefully someone here can help out ... Is it still something that can be used? Do I need any special equipment? Am I limited on how many Keldeos I can obtain through the cartridge? Anything else I should know?

Thanks in advance!

Hello PC,
I was wondering I have been into ev training etc and will a Pokemon be more powerfull if you EV train it from the moment it hatches from its egg instead of a wild pokemon.
I dont know if its coincedence but my egg hatched ev trained pokemon are stronger than the rest.
Thanks in advance,
Declan

They are pretty much the same. Both freshly caught and freshly hatched pokemon have 0 EVs at the time you get them. The only benefit of hatching them instead of catching them wild is that if you know how to IV breed then you can get good IVs and overall a stronger pokemon. Plus you can get the nature and ability you want for your pokemon

You can start opening the Nursery once you hit Rank 15 and after beating the Elite Four and Champion.

Would like to resolve this issue to be able to use the poke bank when its released thanks in advance!

The error code you have is probably Nintendo server being overloaded. I recall it as such anyway. E-shop has the same problem.

http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/lookup.jsp

"Error Code: 13266
The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection is currently experiencing problems due to a high amount of players, or is temporarily down. Please try again later."

Heatran, Lati@s, Kyurem, Reshiram, the musketeer trio and the lake trio are the obtainable legendaries in-game.

Notable non-legendaries include the Riolu line, the Azurill line, the Eeveelutions, the Solosis line, the Magnemite line, any Pokemon with a useful Hidden/Dream World Ability (Sheer Force Nidoking, Technician Breloom, Moxie Salamence, etc.).

Look here for your opinion (note that this lists Pokemon available pre-National Dex)

Well, based on videos I saw on YouTube (notably Marriland since I follow his videos a lot) a good trick to catching Virizion, or in fact Legendaries in general is to make sure you're stocked up on Ultra Balls, and also Dusk Balls since the latter comes in handy when it's night. Another strategy you can try at first is saving before you battle it, throw a Quick Ball and hope it gets caught. If it doesn't, you could just reset and try again.

Also, some people may catch it in more or less balls than some others did due to a hidden random number. Thankfully it can be reset if you are having trouble catching it. Also, using a Pokemon that resists its attacks is another good strategy, as well as using False Swipe which ensures you won't knock the Pokemon out.

Anyways, good luck!

And while not fully relevant to the subject at hand, one other note on the legendary trio in BW2 (Cobalion, Terrakion and Virizion) is that if you knock them out before beating the game (or after then for that matter), after you beat Iris they respawn at Level 65 instead of 45. Which is pretty nice, and in his videos he recommended that if you don't plan to use them. And if you have a Ghost-type, that is perfect at that point, because then their only means of attack is Sacred Sword. That was what I did in my main White 2 game, I knocked them out then came back for them in the post-game.

And speaking of Marriland, he said this in his video, but at that point their nature/IVs will NOT be set. In fact, I got me a Jolly Terrakion with 31 Attack/Speed almost ready to rock and roll, pretty neat.

I recently started playing Pokemon again because of Pokemon X. Upon hearing that you can actually move older Generation Pokemon from Gen 3 to 5 into Gen 6 I decided to start buy both Ruby and Platinum.

I just now found out that there's this super cute Pokemon called Meloetta... And from what I've heard... I can't get this one anymore unless I got it through some event from Gamestop?

Is there still a way for me to get this Pokemon or am I just out of luck? I've already beaten Ruby, Platinum, and X and just started Black. I'm pretty sad now that I can't get my own Meloetta...

You're out of luck. Meloetta was distributed in Gen V a long time ago, but that distribution is over now. Ask in the Trade Center for one, or try your luck in Wonder Trade/GTS in X/Y.

Both Darmanitan and Chandelure are good options if you want a strong Fire-type in Unova.

You can find Darumaka on Route 4 and in the Desert Resort, plus you can also get a Zen Mode Darmanitan if you do Memory Link with your original Black/White games. It has high physical attack and it learns some strong moves, plus if you catch the normal ones with Sheer Force most of its attacks hit even harder in trade for losing secondary effects.

Chandelure is great if you want a more special-based Fire-type, and you can easily catch Litwick in Celestial Tower on Route 7. They start off a bit weak and take a while to evolve into Lampent but once you get your hands on a Dusk Stone you'll eventually be able to evolve it into Chandelure. It's also part-Ghost which gives you some extra type coverage.

I posted this question a while ago but no one would answer so here is my question:
Quote originally posted by Blade:
Make sure that you are hitting the correct military time.
— Make sure that you are not holding any buttons when loading the Pokémon game. After clicking A, allow the white screen and Pokémon Company, Nintendo message to play. You may begin pressing any buttons as soon as the shooting stars / Gamefreak logo plays.
— You do not have to button mash and you should not be. Just hit the target time and normally enter the game world.
— Make sure that you are not turning on the C-Gear or activating Wi-Fi.
— Make sure that you were saved in an area with wild Pokémon (e.g. Victory Road).
— Make sure that you were saved with a prepared party (e.g. Sweet Scenter). Do NOT withdraw party members.
— Make sure you are not walking around. Use Sweet Scent ASAP.
— Make sure you are not attempting RNG abuse while charging the DS.
— Make sure you are using the same DS and Pokémon version you used to obtain your MAC address and DS Parameters.
— Check everything entered in RNG Reporter. The Pokémon version, the language, the MAC address.
— Widen your parameter search range and/or redo your parameter search.
— If all else fails, explain your procedure and problems.
I made sure I avoided all of these but I don't get something.
It says "Use Sweet Scent ASAP" But wont that increase my frame a LOT?
shouldn't I get to the Frame I need to be at and then enter the battle?

I tried sweet scent ASAP but it was not it, I tried framing it before the battle but still nothing. can someone please help?

As soon as you hit your seed and then advance to your target frame, then you would need to use Sweet Scent. It doesn't advance your frame seeing as it decides what your frame is at the exactly moment Sweet Scent was used.
