    Ok thanks for that, im presuming i wont notice the change in the stat until i train him to level 100 thought?

    No, stats recalculate after every battle, although yes, by definition it gets more and more visible as the level gets higher.

        ...Winona isn't in Black and White. I think you mean Skyla.

        But as a whole, I do believe they are useful - especially against Team Plasma (which uses mainly dark types and such). I used Sawk the whole way through on one playthrough and did pretty well, though you're best if you have a fire/ice type to back it up towards the end, in my opinion. :x

        edit: lol saw your edit XD;

          A fire and ice type will be a pain
          Are there even any useful ones in gen 5?
          Maybe Darumaka or Litwick... If those are available...

          If I pick up Sawk I already have 4 members on my party
          And I was leaving a spot for the electric tarantula thingy
          (I'm afraid it will take ages for me to get one though)
          Is it just me or did they actually create a useful spider for once?

          So that'd make my future party something like this:

          Sawk (1) maybe I could replace it with Scrafty (1?) later on...
          Serperior (1)
          Simipour (1) (why oh why did you have to have lonely nature, sniff...)
          Unfezant (3) / Darmanitan (2) / Chandelure (1)
          Galvantula (1)

          Ah it's too damn hard :P
          I'm not able to get all of those in the early game

          If I can actually get a nice fire type I wasted my time with pidove...
          Sigh... That's why I hate bird types... They tend to be so replaceable...

          Suggestions / Ideas?

          I picked up a Throh (not unlike your Sawk ofc) specifically to deal with Lenora. I then kept it on my team through the whole game because it was just so fantastic. It's a real powerhouse, and I recommend keeping one. And Throh and Sawk were two of just a very few Pokemon that I had trouble with when I ran into them lategame. So yeah, def worth it.

            Then I'll keep it :D
            Now I dumped pidove in the box
            And hoping to find a nice fire type pretty soon in the game
            And an electric type or ice type
            Since I have 2 pokémon weak to flying right now
            And my panpour can't actually handle flying types all that well
            Are there any new ice types in gen 5?

            Cryogonal and Cubchoo/Beartic are the only ones that spring to mind, but the former is rather rare. I'm sure there are more, though, discounting Kyurem.

              Wow...
              They actually look usable :D
              Yay

              I might actually go for it
              Now to choose between Darmantian and Chandelure...

              Which one would work best if I go with an ice type on my team

              Serperior
              Simipour
              Sawk
              Darmantian / Chandelure
              Cryogonal / Beartic
              Electric type, preferably the spider lol

              Eww, don't use Simipour. There are a lot of more useful water types like Jellicent and Swanna. And Chandelure over Darmanitan. Though, for your ice type, if it was me I'd use Vanilluxe. But its up to you on that. And for your fighting type, I'd rather go for Conkeldurr if you can trade. But I have a Gurdurr and I think its still great.

              If you really prefer that team, i suggest you train sawk and darmanitan to at least lvls 35-40+ then you are ready to take on Brycen.

                Ow Vanilluxe looks nice indeed :o
                But I'm keeping Simipour lol
                As for my fighting type I plan on keeping Sawk as well :P
                It will take a while before I can get my next pokémon if I go with Vanilluxe, Chandelure and Tulla,
                but oh well that doesn't matter I hope...

                    Tew beh honest, Poison types are useless since they are only superior to grass (but grass can beat with with Psychic).

                    I'd go with Scolopide since it's also bug.

                    Nidoking or Scolipede?

                    Which is better?
                    That depends on the rest of your team since both pokemon are quite different in movesets and the like. The only thing they have in common would be the poison-typing.

                    Naturally I'd go with Nidoking because he also packs STAB ground moves which hit fire, steel, rock, poison, and electric pokemon for super-effectivity.

                      Scolipede isn't that good at the end of the day, having to wait for Mega Horn, then deal with it's Accuracy.

                      Nidoking is pretty good, I'm take a guess here, but I think you got the DW Ability, so that means when it evolves into Nidoking all it's moves with an effect (Fire Blast, Thunder, Blizzard, Earth Power, Level Ground) will get stronger, with the cost of no secondary effects (Sheer Force). You can get the Moon Stone for Nidorino after Pinwheel Forest (Inner), then wait until it get's Trash and bam, it hit's like a truck. Then when you get to Nimbasia you get Return, and after Clay you get Smooth Over, an Awesome STAB move (120 BP after STAB and Sheer Force)

                      tl;dr: Nidoking > Scolipede

                        It depends where exactly in the game you're at. She might be in Nacrene City, that's the only place I can think of that she will actually be intractable with. If she isn't there than you'll just have to progress through the game until she goes back to her lab.

                          Excuse me, I accidentally knocked out the Relic Volcarona. And saved. Does it come back after the Hall of Fame or not?

                          I can't answer your question for you because I never had that situation and google isn't helping, but if it doesn't you get a Larvesta egg anyway, so it's not like you can never get a Volcarona again. You just have to level it yourself. :P

                            Yeah..She should be in her lab, but perhaps since you havent got into a certain point in the game then maybe she isnt..No clue :x. Maybe you went to the wrong town?;D (Happened to me once..Felt like an idiot afterwards)

                            Is it possible to trade Pokémon attached with Items just like in the previous Generations?

                            Only from Black to White and White to Black. Not between generations.

                              ok, evolution stones! is there a better way of getting them other than endlessly farming the dust clouds. ive been doing it for 45 mins now, and ive only gotten a single thunderstone. i know its RNG, but its so tiresome. ive already found all the ones on the floor and what people give you, but i need far more to evolve my pokemon to complete my dex. i only have one copy of the game, and cannot really trade wirelessly, as my internets encryption isnt WEP, its one of the others that the DS cant get through (nor can i change it). its frustrating me endlessly that there arnt enough in game!
