    I was lucky...I got a flawless Japanese Ditto in a trade. I haven't done any IV-specific breeding yet; I'm not really into the competitive thing as much. I wonder if my Lv.72 Zoroark (received in Egg form) came from it, however; it is just a beast.

    Granted, this is in Gen. V. My prior message was for Gen. IV.

    Dittos actually make good candidates for IV breeding, I have 6 so far, each with a perfect IV in various stats. Some are duplicates but of different natures. Once I get one w/ a perfect IV in each different stat, I will start breeding. I'm anxious to compare the Emboar I started with to the Super Pig I'm going to make lol.

    Haha. I've had five or six turn up in SoulSilver on Route 32 while training. I caught three of them. I figure they make good trading material for someone without much to offer. #winning

    Did you know that Ditto hunting is a pain in the you-know-what? lol

    blolz...take advantage of the Route 10 Audinos and trigger/fight them for a while. Once you're AT LEAST Lv.54 on all Pokémon (trust me, Ghetsis has Hydreigon at that level, otherwise he's Lv.52...I'd ask how, but he also has a Lv.52 Volcarona), then go back and challenge again.

    Also remember in N's Castle you can warp to the Pokémon League healing center. From there, you can go wherever and do whatever until the final battle. You can't reenter the PL itself until after the end of the story, but you can warp back to N's Castle from the same spot. One room of the castle does contain a PC, so also pimp yourself out for the E4 fights and have others trained in the wings to trade in via PC.

    Well, just pitted my Scrafty up against Shauntal at level 43...BIG MISTAKE! Her level 50 Cohagrigus promptly stomped me lol.

    Guess I need to take him up a bit more.

    Tornadus and Thundurus are the annual "roamers" for the B/W games (coincidentally, with Landorus, not in B2/W2 but can be traded into said games, each adopting a second Forme). My Tornadus experience began 10 minutes before midnite, and I decided to just weaken it on a couple of attempts as I knew it would be the end of "evening" soon; sure enough, at the new day, it headed around to the Lacumosa/Undella/Black areas between Routes 12-15 - none of which were available to me yet (and even if they were, I would surely be crushed by anything there except perhaps the wild Pokémon, but they were National Dex entries in any case).

    While in bed, I thought about Watchog. I realized Mean Look would stop the runaway.

    I had flown to Nimbasa before going to bed, and went to the PC first thing in the morning to collect it out of Box 1. I headed to Route 5 and went back and forth to trigger the storm, then went hunting. Of course, the storm came and went as I got other battles too, so I said screw it and wandered aimlessly for a while. It came up, I used Mean Look, and started going after it with Hypnosis and whittling down its HP with Super Fang. It somehow defeated Watchog and ran on the next turn (Mean Look deactivates when the user switches out). I went to heal and came back for a second go, and managed to get it. Storm over, off to train for the E4.

    And yes, that Dragon Gym was a piece of cake. Told you it would be. :D

    Cryogonal and Tornadus are mine! Cryogonal took 2 battles to find and capture with the repel trick. I leveled him to 41 and watched as he used Ice Beam to OHKO 98% of the trainers in Drayden's Gym and all 3 of Drayden's pokemon! With Tornadus I was not so lucky, I had to chase him around a bit but got him eventually...

    Yup, Scraggy evolves into Scrafty and learns moves like Brick Break, High Jump Kick (both fighting), Crunch, Faint Attack (both Dark), Chip Away, Rock Climb (both Normal), and Head Smash (Rock type, but way up in the 60s, ignore before the first E4 unless you REALLY want to grind but I don't recommend the move for E4 purposes).

    I did take Scrafty in at something like Lv.53 or Lv.54, but also rotated my Pokémon because the odd move is known where unexpected that can take Scrafty down. Look up guides and figure out opponents Scrafty should NOT battle based on known moves, and cycle other Pokémon in there. Despite the dual type, I also recommend having another Dark type in the mix. I believe I also took one of the Musketeers with me; I think I chose the Rock/Fighting Terrakion (found in Victory Road after encountering Cobalion, his area is sealed off otherwise, and all three Musketeers are part Fighting FYI with Virizion sharing Grass and Cobalion Steel).

    The offer for a Zorua is still on. I'm going to breed one for someone else, so this is your chance to acquire one. I can even deliver it with Pokérus; that lets it train its EV levels MUCH quicker (double speed in fact), and you can spread it to all of your own Pokémon by keeping Zorua in your party while doing other battles (just make sure to keep something in the PC so you don't lose the disease). As a note, Pokérus is rarer than Shinies, and I found Pokérus first; got my first Shiny on Emerald the other day. :)

    Scraggy huh? I never even looked twice at him. Perhaps I will give him a test run to see if I like him. Sounds like he would be handy for the endgame.

    Haha, yes. If I may give some advice, if Scraggy isn't on your training list...TRAIN IT. It's both Dark and Fight types, and that means it can learn moves to take out both Psychic and Dark types. The problem is, it will need to be strong enough to OHKO the Psychics, or their moves will completely wipe it out due to the Fight type. Ghost types are also weak to the Dark type.

    The reason I note this is because I just named all four types of the Unova E4.

    Meanwhile, if you don't have a Zorua, get one. It learns a LOT of Dark moves and is a handy Pokémon against the Psychics. If you want that, you must trade for it. Speaking of Zorua, my Zoroark knows Faint Attack, Foul Play, Night Slash, and Night Daze, the last being a signature move of the pairing learned at Lv.64 and with base power 85, and with STAB being much higher. If you ever want to trade for one, I can breed it with the flawless Japanese Ditto I got via a trade and have any specific type of stat automatically at its maximum base amount for the bred Zorua, and since my Zoroark is at a high level, Night Daze might come with it already as well.

    I have a growing stockpile of berries, mainly because I always forget I have them. It sounds like I will need to get some more levels on my Pokemon so I don't wind up being one shot while battling later on. I should probably get some more Pokemon out in rotation too since I've only really used 14 of the 57 I own lol

    Don't worry about EV training until after the game. It doesn't mean anything until you're prepping to battle someone else's super-powerful Pokémon, and you are going to be fighting all sorts of Pokémon that will ruin your EV training until you clear the bulk of them. Of course, you can always just never use those Pokémon.

    BTW, trade a Pokémon with someone who has Pokérus and get it traded back shortly thereafter. Pokérus doubles your EV stat gains. Translation: your stats max out much faster and you get stronger quicker. I happen to have Pokémon with Pokérus; the idea is to get everything in your PC infected, then keep some permanently in the PC until you want to infect more. I'll eventually someday infect my entire PC a second time, but I cleared it once and can do it again at my leisure since I have some Jellicents that never see the light of Unova now that they're mine.

    The berry guy quickly fell out of my routine; I never used the berries because they were so rare. I'm currently growing fields of them in Emerald and my daily regimen will involve harvesting them. I will tend to plant wherever I go at that moment and plan to be around for a while, but I can always backtrack and plant the 2-4 day growers in remote locations. Since most berries usable in battle take a maximum of 12 hours, I have 7 fields in Route 104 North that are my harvesting grounds right now. But yeah, not being able to grow them in Unova is a huge bummer.

    I didn't do the Driftveil Move Lady until after the E4. Don't know why, didn't realize it was there immediately.

    You will LOVE Nimbasa City after the E4. There will be a LOT more people hanging around the stadium grounds with super-tough Pokémon. Note, again, they will all be in the 60s.

    I have a daily regiment of visiting the Challenge Rock, the trainers in the 2 stadiums in Nimbassa City, the berry guy in the art gallery in Castelia City and the Heart Scale woman in Driftveil City. Occasionally I will spend some time feather collecting on the bridge but I haven't decided if I want to mess with EV training thing I've been reading about or not

    I didn't think about it, but you are correct. As it says there, they debut at Shopping Mall Nine and Opelucid City (the game would be WAY too easy otherwise). Repeat Balls meanwhile are not available until you reach the very end, and are standing at the Pokémon League; the mart there contains them, and I believe somewhere in the eastern half of Unova as well. You'll also find Dive Balls at Undella Town; appropriate because there's water right in the town for fishing, and I found my Corsola in there.

    Do you still visit the challenge rock daily? That earns a lot of money early on, of course, and I still do it now even though I'm rich just because it's habitual (and who knows what I'll have to buy someday). Once all of my Black collecting is done, I'll probably forego the Challenge Rock and other financial helpers since I've already bought all the TMs, and I'll then concentrate on the Battle Subway. Already took a Zoroark in leading my trio and got to the LAST CAR on the second train to have the final hit come down to speed; if mine went first, I'd have three more BP and be on the last train. That was the only fight that my Zoroark lost in the first round. :)
