    Only the Mother can pass on the Hidden Ability. (Alternate means other...So any pokemon with 2 normal abilities have alternate abilities.)

    With the new B2W2 Breeding Mechanics, the Mother in slot 1 in the Daycare has a higher chance to pass on her current regular ability, while the mother in slot 2 has a higher chance to pass on the regular ability that she doesn't have.

    I believe that was how it worked.

      So a male mating with the Ditto cannot pass on the ability?

        Based on the new Breeding mechanics, Male with Ditto is 50:50 for regular abilities. For Dream World Males cannot pass on abilities and breeding anything with Ditto will not carry over Dream World Abilities.

        Males pass on attacks, Females pass on abilities.

          Ok, my first question:

          is B2/W2 a remake of B1/W1 ? or is it an expansion to it? i haven't played either one of them yet so i'm not sure.

          I don't own a DS or a 3DS, will the DS Pokemon games work on the 3DS? or just the DS only?

          and, I know the DS/3DS has internet/wi-fi on it, is it worldwide so i can battle/trade with anyone around the world? or is their a certain range on it? I think i got all my questions right here, well let me know, thx

          Black 2/White 2 are sequels to the original Black/White games.

          Black 2/White 2 work fine on any DS.

          Not sure about the third one, though.

            You can battle/trade with anyone worldwide. Only infrared features and passersby (on the C-gear) are limited in range.

                Let's say you with White 2 (let's assume this for my example) and a buddy with Black 2 are sitting on a bench in the park. You are in range with one another, so you can use the Union Room to do any trading and such (just like Wifi but you do not require a FC) or use features on the C-Gear like visiting each other's world. You can do Passersby Analytics surveys, etc.

                However, when you later return home to opposite sides of the city, your two systems are no longer in range. You can no longer visit the other person's world or use the Union Room to communicate.

                This is the best I can explain "range". If you're not in range with another player, there are certain activities you cannot do under any circumstances. At that point, you trade FCs and use the middle room, which works provided you can access the Internet (and that becomes your "range").

                  A follow-up to the ability breeding question from earlier:

                  So right now I have a female breloom with technician ability, and a male serperior. I also have given the breloom an everstone to pass down her nature.
                  Of the 15 shroomish I've hatched so far, none have had technician, but all have had the mother's nature.

                  Does the everstone prevent the technician ability from passing down?

                  You're just unlucky. If a female DW Pokémon is bred with a non-Ditto father, there should be a 60% chance that the DW ability will be passed down. If I recall, the Everstone passes down nature only.

                  Yes, the Everstone only passes down nature.

                  In the case of B2/W2, it passes down nature 100% of the time.

                    N's Zorua made a strange sparkle when I sent it out. It wasn't shininess, I think its ability may have been the cause. I need to know why? The Zorua was in the back of my party when I sent it out, because the Pokemon in the back was switched with Zorua earlier.

                    I think you're talking about this animation in the picture below.



                    That's an indicator used on all of N's Pokemon, not just Zorua.

                    The complete list of N's Pokemon can be found here.

                      My last questions weren't answered, so i thought I'd try again. Thanks. :-)

                      How do I do "Friend Check"?

                      Also, to connect via the Entree Link, do my friend and I have to have reached Black City/White Forest?

                      Also, to connect via the Entree Link, do my friend and I have to have reached Black City/White Forest?
                      1. I think you might mean "Feeling Check". Just touch "IR" on the C-Gear and then select "Feeling Check". This requires a second DS to link up to, and can only be done once a day. You can get Sweet Hearts from this.

                      2. Nope, Entralink can be accessed at any time.

                        Will doing the Feeling Check be enough to get my friend to show up in Join Avenue?

                        No. Feeling Check does not affect Join Avenue whatsoever.

                          Although, if you're close enough to do a feeling check, he/she should have been detected by the C-Gear, which is all that seems to be needed to have him/her walk down Join Avenue. (I tagged someone in the hotel I'm in... no other interaction... and they showed up in Join Avenue.)

                            Haven't even finished Black yet, but I'm curious. How does the Kyurem fusing thing work? You have to fuse two Pokemon together right? What if they're at different levels? One is shiny? What happens when you gain levels and then split them apart?

                              They fuse using an item you get after the story.

                              Yes you fuse Zekrom + Kyurem for Black Kyurem and Reshiram + Kyurem for White Kyurem.

                              They take the level of Kyurem as the level for Black/White Kyurem and his moveset.

                              You can't have one shiny. All three involved are Shiny locked in both sets of games. Either way,
                              you'd have to have a Shiny Kyurem to get the Shiny forms.

                              If you gain levels, I believe Kyurem gets the level boost.

                              Yes, you are right.
                              White/Black Kyurem are taken as Kyurem in game so the level boost goes to Pokémon with the same data, who is Kyurem =)
                              If I recall correctly, Kyurem and White/Black Kyurem can have different movesets... I believe splitted Kyurem goes back to its moveset even though the White/Black one learns new move. But I'm not sure.

                                The forme-only moves Kyurem learns are reverted to Scary Face and uh, Glaciate I believe.

                                  So if they are then re-fused, do they automatically relearn the moves? I'm reminded that Rotom can learn moves by entering appliances, but if it doesn't learn the move it abandons the appliance. Is it identical here in that Rotom loses knowledge of the appliance-based move?

                                      For Full metal cop, you must gross 500 billion on any movie; though I don't see anything regarding Brycen man strikes back.
