    I'm still learning the complexities of the Pokemon Dream World and would like some help choosing which Pokemon to take "home."

    Here are my choices today:
    • Rattata - Male - Hustle
    • Nidoran - Male - Hustle
    • Surskit - Male - Rain Dish
    • Mareep - Female - Plus
    • Nidoran - Female - Hustle
    • Surskit - Male - Rain Dish
    • Farfetch'd - Male - Defiant
    I'm guessing I should take one of the Nidorans?

    Also, if the experts could share advice on how to best select Dream World Pokemon, I would appreciate it and I imagine others would, too. :)

    I know that females are typically preferable to males since they can pass on abilities, but, beyond that, I'm all but clueless.

        A Beartic or a Cryogonal can be your best friend. Just watch out for Flamethrower (it isn't STAB-ed, so it won't do very much damage, but still).

            Hydreigon, surprisingly, doesn't weild a Dark move, so you can actually use something like a Reuniclus and hit it back with a Focus Blast. You can also use a "Cursed Body" Jellicent to wall the Hydreigon, and stall with Potions against the Hydreigon's Dragon Pulse util it get's Disabled with Curse Body, then it can't touch you for Neutral/Super Effective Damage. Then you can use Toxic / Will-O-Wisp to then stall it out.

            Trust me it works, on my 2nd Run through Black I used a Eviolite Frillish (which isn't as bulky as Jellicent since it's lacking Base HP) to take care of that threat.

              You have two options: Victory Road w/ Lucky Egg, or Audino grinding w/ Lucky Egg. I'd suggest Victory Road, it doesn't take as long. Train up to level 50, at least.

                Going by my Reuiniclus / Jellicent advice, Jellicent can take 3 Dragon Pulses at Lvl 46, and Reuniclus can take 3 at Lvl 48, cut's some grinding in half, but Beartic is still a solid option aswell.

                    Rufflet isn't really a good Pokemon, even more so against Ghetsis, though an ideal move set would be (if it has the ability Sheer Force):
                    Crush Claw, Fly, Shadow Claw, Rock Tomb

                    The Pokemon you pick can be picked for any reason. Because the ones that you can get at first aren't that great (not until you get about 10,000 points), I usually go with ones that I can never get ingame outside of White Forest, but that's because I'm trying to fill my Pokedex.

                    Put it this way - if you Dream World enough, you'll have no problem getting any of those Pokemon again.

                        I want to start EV training my level 1 dratini (dragonite eventually) for competitive battles. I was thinking a mild nature with 56 Atk / 252 SpA / 200 Spd. Right off the bat if you think this is bad tell me, if not can you tell me which mobs I would have to kill and how many times each? I'm just not sure how to calculate it.

                        He will have pokerus and the macro brace. Thank you.

                          on the "continue newgame mystery gift" screen hold down L+R+A+start, and t should give you the option of erasing all data, which then allows you to save with a new game.

                            When you come to the title screen, press up, B, and select simultaneously and it will ask you if you want to erase all data.

                            I'm not completely sure on this but you must kill 14 Patrat's or Lillipups (can be a mix of both), 63 Litwicks and 25 Basculins.

                              I'm not completely sure on this but you must kill 14 Patrat's or Lillipups (can be a mix of both), 63 Litwicks and 25 Basculins.
                              But once I do that? My EVs will be maxed and I can kill whatever pokemon i want without ruining the EVs??

                              Indeed. Once your EVs are maxed (You can talk to a girl in Opelucid City who will say your Dratini "put in a great effort"), you'll be free to fight anyone and the EVs will remain the same.

                              Confirming chaos' numbers, they all look right after calculating it out myself. A little help though:

                              -For attack, just go to Route 1. All the Pokemon available to kill there give you 1 attack EV (Patrat and Lillipup), excepting the Audinos in the shaking grass which you should avoid.
                              -For Sp.Atk, go to the Celestial Tower. There are only two Pokemon there - Litwick and Elgyem. Both give the same EVs. Kill 63 of them in any combination, as long as overall it's 63. I personally do this right next to the nurse in Celestial Tower so she can heal me.
                              -For Speed, go to Route 1 and surf off the coast. You will only run into Basculin, makes it easy.

                                You're all very helpful. Just a few more questions:

                                Once my pokerus goes away I get a little pink symbol, it still has the pokerus effect on it right?

                                An example for my next question: If I want to get 56 attack, and i have pokerus (x2 evs) and machobrace (x2 evs) i only have to kill 14 patrats? Does this count if another pokemon kills them for my dratini who is wearing an exp share?

                                Even if they can't spread it, it will still give them double EVs.

                                And no, it doesn't work like that because your Dratini can't hold an exp. share and a macho brace at the same time. So you'd have to kill twice as many if you're using an exp. share.

                                  Yes, the pokerus effect remains forever, but that pokemon may no longer spread the effect to other pokemon, so its always best to keep one pokemon in the PC with it so you can transfer it whenever you need to.

                                  Not sure about the EV calculation though.

                                    Ok so I would have to kill 28 patrats with my dratini holding an exp share if i want 56 atk. This doesn't affect the EV gain if another pokemon is doing the killing correct?

                                      Well kinda, you will have 2 leftover EVs afterwards, though it doesn't really matter since 2 EVs do not effect any stat gain (4 Evs = 1 Stat Point)

                                      Also about the Exp.Share question, Exp.Share does pass EVs weild, but you will get a diffrent amout from the one wearing the Macho Brace. Like if a Macho brace pokemon holds kills a Patrat(+PKRS) it will get 4 EVs, but the EXPShare Pokemon will only get 2 (if it has Pokerus)

                                      Also, the Pink symbol still allows you to gain double the EVs you obtain, but you can't "pass the virus" to other Pokemon.

                                      Nope, you've got it right. EVs are multiplied with the exp. share, not split like the experience is. Each Pokemon will get 1 attack EV, multiplied by Pokerus or items or whatever. So Dratini would get two, which means 28 patrats/lillipups.

                                        Fantastic.


                                        What about this? How do you guys usually breed your pokemon? Is there some secret quick way? What I do is let my dratini breed 5 eggs for my party, i got on one of the long bridges and just run up and down until they all hatch.

                                        Is this a good way or is there a more efficient way?


                                        btw, i really really appreciate all the help.

                                          I use the small path along the Daycare Center, just because the Daycare Man tells you when another Egg has been discovered. Though I use that method mainly because I hatch eggs while getting eggs, if that makes any sense.

                                            Makes a ton of sense, you would have to use the PC every now and than but that seems very effective.


                                            One hopefully last question :P:

                                            What are the groups like for the nature types for breeding. For example if I want a timid nature charmander, what kind of charmander nature would help breed a timid nature?
