    Also, I have all of the Regis. The main three are Lv.40 as caught by that Trainer, and I have a Lv.1 King Regi (the nickname someone gave) Regigigas - and yes, the Lv.1 is legit. Someday I'll get to finishing Emerald and find the trio myself there!

    Decisions made! Just to summarize, here's what I have coming your way:

    Naughty nature
    Lightningrod ability
    Hatched at Skyarrow Bridge 12/13/2012 (I hatch all my Eggs there BTW)
    OT: Cyclone
    ID: 57151
    Moves: Horn Attack/Tail Whip
    NOTES: To fully evolve, you will need a Protector; hand it to Rhydon and trade it to evolve. If you don't have two systems and games, you'll need a trading partner. If you need this item, I can clone mine on the other system before trading (I have been thinking about keeping a clone of this one for my W2, I like it). Bulbapedia does not yet list where the Protector is found in B2/W2 like with other items, if it's even found.

    Impish nature
    Flash Fire ability
    Hatched at Skyarrow Bridge 12/13/2012
    OT: Cyclone
    ID: 57151
    Moves: Leer/Ember/Embargo/Flamethrower
    NOTES: None.

    Everything look good with these? Other than cloning a Protector - which I am prepared to do as I don't know if you can get one - this is all set.

    Rhyhorn #5: Relatively superior potential (HP, Sp. Def, Speed).
    Rhyhorn #6: Above average (Speed).
    Rhyhorn #7: Relatively superior potential (Attack, Sp. Attack).
    Rhyhorn #8: Not checked (bad nature for species).

    I have a feeling #5 should be readied for trading. :D

    You misread. #6 is PLUS Special Defense, MINUS Special Attack. I misread, you meant #5.

    Will do checks. Stand by.

    New Rhyhorn batch:

    Rhyhorn #5: Naughty (+Attack -Sp. Defense)
    Rhyhorn #6: Careful (+Sp. Defense - Sp. Attack)
    Rhyhorn #7: Relaxed (+Defense -Speed)
    Rhyhorn #8: Modest (+Sp. Attack - Attack)

    I haven't done other checks at Battle Subway, but your Naughty one is there. Definitely better than the Modest one since there are very few Special-Type moves in its arsenal. Careful could be useful too, however, since Sp. Attack is lowered (which literally has no effect) while Sp. Defense (things like Flamethrower) is boosted.

    If you want checks run on the three (already assuming Modest is out), I can run them.

    They are both Special attacking moves, but not because of type. It's possible for Skuntank, for instance, to learn Flamethrower, and it's the only one that isn't Fire type at all. (I'm not counting breeding, etc.; only learning the move naturally.)

    So the four Rhyhorn I have are being bypassed? I'll start the second batch if this is confirmed.

    Well, these particular Houndour have the following attacks at hatching: Leer/Ember/Embaro/Flamethrower. I can replace one of these with a TM if desired (I highly recommend keeping Flamethrower, which isn't learned until Lv.44 otherwise, and Embargo at Lv.37). Flamethrower is a special attack move, so specimen #3 appears to be primed to take advantage of the power behind the attack due to already having a nature-related boost in that stat. I see what you want, however, trying to boost its Defense, which is perenially weak (or was the superior potential what chose it? ).

    BTW, I edited the post two below this. I said Houndoom where I meant Rhyhorn. This is fixed.

    BTW, pardon my error: Houndoom is the evolution of Houndour. I have the Houndour, clearly.

    If any of the Rhyhorn look good to you, I'll provide full details for both before trading.

    Houndour #2, check.

    Update on the Rhyhorn. Again, I have four specimens. I did not run battle tests this time (the Houndour are back at Lv.1 BTW). The natures and Potential Checks came out as follows:

    Rhyhorn #1: Quirky (no boost), relatively superior potential, Defense best.
    Rhyhorn #2: Docile (no boost), outstanding potential, HP best, Defense and Spoeed also good.
    Rhyhorn #3: Relaxed (+Defense, -Speed), above average, Sp. Attack best, Speed also good.
    Rhyhorn #4: Lax (+Defense, -Sp. Defense), relatively superior potential, Attack best, Defense also good.

    #4 seems like it meets what you're looking for with the Attack IV being best and Defense also being good, but the nature boosts Defense instead of Attack. I got no natures boosting Attack. I can try again if you'd like.

    Update on the Houndoom. I have four specimens. Here are the stats they have at Lv.15 (natures noted).

    Houndoom #1: 23/18/28/21/29 (Jolly)
    Houndoom #2: 26/18/28/24/25 (Impish)
    Houndoom #3: 24/14/36/24/25 (Modest)
    Houndoom #4: 23/18/32/20/29 (Docile)

    Moving on to Lv.20, this time noting what's boosted by natures:

    Houndoom #1: 29/23/36/27/37 (Speed boosted)
    Houndoom #2: 33/24/36/31/32 (Defense boosted)
    Houndoom #3: 31/17/47/31/32 (Special Attack boosted)
    Houndoom #4: 29/23/41/25/37 (No boost)

    Finally, ability checks at Battle Subway (run at Lv.20 but I believe identical regardless of level):

    Houndoom #1: Above average overall, best potential HP (Defense also good)
    Houndoom #2: Relatively superior potential overall, best potential HP (Sp. Defense also good)
    Houndoom #3: Above average overall, best potential Attack (Sp. Attack and Sp. Defense also good)
    Houndoom #4: Above average overall, best potential Defense (Speed also good)

    Crunch that together and let me know which one interests you! I'll get to work on that Rhyhorn.

    I've been in that boat, asking people for help without much to offer myself. I have a few freebies in my Boxes. If I can Ace this go at the Adamant Rhyhorn, it'll be a quickie. I looked at the Natures and found that the Lonely and Naughty are among those with good Attack (there's a fourth as well), so I'll breed four and see what I get.

    Also, when looking at Lv.1 Pokémon, I tend to see 5 and 6 as the only numbers for values, so it will likely take some experimentation to get a grip on which has the best stats. I'll likely have to breed four Houndoom and do some unsaved extra-curricular to see which one's stats. (as far as Attack and Speed) rise quickest. This is something I could use practice with; knowing what a Pokémon's number will be in a category (without vitamins) would help me determine a benchmark for what stats. of my Ditto go down as flawless on any bred Pokémon.

    In other words, this will be good practice for my Shop someday. I'll get to work.

    I have everything except Meloetta, so I should be able to breed whatever you need. I am actually playing White 2 now, but am taking a break and can go to my 3DS and breed what you need on my Black cart. (where everything is)

    My only question is this: in the event I don't get lucky with nature after several attempts, are there alternatives you might accept? I read that you want an Adamant Rhyhorn, and I can use a Power Item to ensure my Ditto's perfect IV 31 stat. of either Attack or Speed (I'm missing one of the six, I don't know which one it is offhand but it could be one of those) is guaranteed to pass down to the Houndour; in fact, I could load the Ditto with it before breeding Rhyhorn and give it perfect Attack or Speed as well.

    That said, have you picked up a Meloetta that I could even simply clone and return to send back? That's really the main thing I want other than possibly female outsider starters or DW Pokés (I could breed - and have bred - my own starters, but the enhanced breeding rates between two of the same species are what I want to secure here). I'm not picky about natures or attack as breeding is the main intent here.

    Hey Eivana. You probably don't remember me but I used to post here a while back. I have decided to make a comeback! How are you? x

    Fine, I guess? I don't know you or anything right? cause that Silver pic reminds me of a person I used to see in the Game Development Section, except I'm pretty sure it was a guy.
