    Has there been any changes to EV training in Black and White? I'm trying to EV train my Pokemon and I see no major positive stat changes. For example, I'm EV training my Zoroark. It has Pokerus and is holding a Power Lens. I'm training for Sp. Atk. That said, I obviously defeat multiple Litwicks to gain EVs. With Pokerus and Power Lens, the EV gain should be huge, but when he levels up, my Zoroark only gains about 2-3+ Sp. Atk, whereas in HG I could EV train and my Pokemon would gain +15 in one stat upon leveling. So...what am I doing wrong in Black and White?

      Nothing. If you look at your Pokemon's stats, you should still see that its stats have been raised higher than what they were previously. Although I can't find anything to back this up at the moment, I conjecture that stat boosts from EVs are calculated at the end of battles instead of at a level up.

        What level is your Zoroark? Because if it's low level, the stats will be increased gradually as the growth of the pokemon. All stats will increase depending on the level of the pokemon and its growth rate so that if you give 200 EV's a pokemon of level 1 and 200 to a pokemon level 80, the highest level will reflect an increase larger stat thanks to the EV's, since you have less levels to reach the 510 points allowed. Maybe 10-15 win while the pokemon from level 1 to increase the level, won 3-5 only.
        This does not interfere or alter the final result so you do not have to worry about.

          Ok, well that said, what can you tell me about my Zoroark then? He's only lvl 45, Timid nature with his Sp. Atk: 136, Spd: 146. Again, I don't see a major difference but maybe its just me. At level 45, I suppose that doesn't help either. Although, I don't have anything to compare him to.

            As I said at the end there will be no difference, it's still totally normal if you've done the EV'd well.

              In any case, with no EVs, a lv. 45 Timid Zoroark would have a min sp. atk stat of 113 and a max of 126. Speed has min 99 and max 113. 136 and 146 are well above that, which indicates that your EV training was successful.

              Ev training has changed this generation. |: Instead of adding on the Ev points at a level up, the Pokemon will gain them at the end of a battle. So your Zoroark will be gaining them, just very slowly.

                Thanks for the input everyone :) Not use to this way of EV training, but as long as its working, then thats what counts. I'm going to hopefully try out this team in the tournament in Newark, NJ

                    There is no one Unova Pokemon that is able to learn all of the HM moves in this game. To compensate, HM moves barely have any vital use in this game anyway. Including the national Pokedex, Dragonite can learn all the moves. Bibarel and a flyer should work well enough though.

                      Can you catch a bibarel in pokemon white? Another question is are there new natures in pokemon white? Because I'm soft resetting right now for naive oswatt and so far I got mild another old natures. What is mild and what does it do? Let me know.

                      Bibarel is found under the Village Bridge.

                      There aren't any new natures.

                      Mild adds to Special Attack and removes from Defense.

                        I have a quick question that I hope isn't too silly.

                        I just beat N at the Pokemon League; so now I have to find those Sages, but the Pokemon every other Trainer has is in the lower 60s, a vast difference to my only lower 50s level Pokemon that were needed to beat N. My question is this:

                        Where in Unova is a good area to raise and train Pokemon so I can beef up my team? Thanks, everyone.

                        If you don't care about getting HP IVs or mass murdering a certain species of Pokemon, then I'd say you go hunting for Audino. Those little critters give away tons of experience, especially if you have the Lucky Egg equipped. Where to find them? They can be encountered in rustling grass, but the rustling grass phenomenon can happen in any patch of grass in Unova.

                        I suggest you go to a grassy place where there are high-leveled wild Pokemon (such as the Village Bridge, which has a 90% wild Audino encounter with levels ranging from 47-50) to get a similarly high-leveled Audino encounter. Just run around (not in) the grass until you see rustling, (you can use Repels to ward off unnecessary encounters while you walk near the rustling patch of grass) and walk into the rustling patch of grass. There is a high chance that you would encounter wild Audino by doing so. Then after battling (they aren't tough to deal with), you can run around the grass again and repeat the process.

                        Hope this helps.

                        Since they don't sell Casteliacones during the Winter, do the sell prices for them go higher during said season?

                          I have currently in my team:

                          Meguroco - lv.19
                          Janovy - lv.28
                          Baoppu - lv.26
                          Monjara - lv.21
                          Haderia - lv.23
                          Chillarmy - lv.21

                          I know I'll probably have to level up my Pokemon a bit, but can anyone tell me how to defeat her, if I can, with what I have now? I hate her little... switch-out tactic. D: I'm trying to train my Meguroco and Monjara up a bit more so I can use Monjara's Sleep/Poisonpowder and Meguroco's ground-type moves to hit hard.

                          Any help would be appreciated. :D Thanks!

                          Ok, you didn't mention who you're trying to beat... |:< But, from the "Switch-out tactic" I take it as Elesa? Yeah, she's a real pain, my advice is to level all of your Pokemon up to Level 27+ And use Sandile to deal with Zebstrika. Use Servine & Pansear to defeat her Emolga's. Of course use the other Pokemon for back-up.

                            In the dream world, is there a way to choose if I want to go in the forest, in the sky or underwater?

                            Nope, sorry. It's completely random.

                            Are all men stupid?

                            That's right.

                              Question: I just transferred a kadabra from my 4th generation to my 5th generation white version. Kadabra is suppose to evolve from 'trade', but why didn't it evolve after I transferred 4th gen to 5th gen? Am I suppose to level my kadabra a few times?

                                The act of using the Poke transfer does not count as a trade.

                                Ok, I have a question:

                                This is only my second time in the Dream World. First time, all I got was a Nidoran, so I had no problem with sending that back. This time, I befriended a Poochyena and Bidoof, but could only bring one back, so I chose Poochyena. Will Bidoof be available next time? Or is it lost?

                                  Only you will send a pokemon you choose and if my experience and knowledge serves me, the rest will be lost.
