Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

    And did the exact same again without the power anklet on and it only incresed by one that time

    Why didn't it increse by more than 1 like most guides said it would
    You are correct. You gain 2 EVs from battling a Basculin. And the Power Anklet enhances it. Source.

    The problem I see is what you're looking at. The Speed stat. does not increase by 6 every time; your Speed IVs do. The EVs are something you cannot see without an Action Replay. Based on what you are telling me, I observe that if you plugged your game into an Action Replay with the code to see IVs/EVs activated, and then follow the directions to see them, you would see a minimum of 12 or 14 for the battling plus 24 or 28 for the Power Anklet boost. If the Pokémon has Pokérus, double this. Without Pokérus, the smallest number you would see next to Speed for EVs is 36 or 42. You do not know this normally, however, and have to keep track internally.

    You also have to keep in mind that, at some point, EVs are no longer gained. When they max out, that's it, unless you feed it EV reducing berries.

        As for RNG... yes, you cannot see the difference between RNGed and non-RNGed Pokemon that's why RNG is so widely used.
        well you see, Cresselia wasn't RNGd. She was spawned via pokegen. So there is no difference between RNG (via in-game) and spawning via pokegen. except of course, it's much much faster via pokegen.

        This is a huge problem (IMO) and kills trading. I'm seriously looking forward to NO migration from Gen 5 to 6.

          You'll be able to transfer from 5 to 6. I dunno who told you that you couldn't, but its going to be able to be done. There are hints with current events that suggest that you can and its kinda a staple to link generation games.

              I think signups go for a week, but I am not sure the start date. You have to compete in some tournament. As for the Metagross, it appears here in the Event Database; that itself isn't available until May 30.

              You have to participate in the TCG League in real life. More info on this can be found on the official site.

                  I was browsing the web and someone said he has a Skarmory with the following moveset:

                  Roost
                  Spikes
                  Roar
                  Drill Peck

                  Now, I get that Drill Peck was taught via breeding with a Doduo/drio, but how exactly did he manage to get Roost on it?

                  EDIT: Whoever moved my post moved it to the wrong board, this is a question regarding Black, not Black 2.

                    Your post was moved to B2/W2 Quick Questions for one specific reason: Roost is taught via Move Tutors which are based in those games. You can trade one back to B/W, but Roost cannot be learned specifically in those two games by Skarmory.

                        Unfortunately, you cannot. The only way to receive a Purrloin with Prankster is to encounter a Liepard in the Hidden Grotto in Routes 5 & 9. They have a 30% chance to be a female, which is what you would need in order to breed a Purrloin with Prankster.

                        However, Liepard only have a 4% encounter rate in the Hidden Grotto in Route 5, and a 15% encounter rate in the Grotto on Route 9. Even more so, when a Hidden Grotto refreshes, there is still only a 20% chance that there will be a Pokemon in it.

                        So...um, happy hunting, and best of luck to you! However, you could always check the Trade Corner, if you'd rather the easier way! (Be sure to read their rules and guidelines before posting).

                            Skarmory with Roost can be attained a few ways. In B/W/B2/W2 It can appear in the Dream World with the ability Weak Armor and the attack Roost. If your friend doesn't own B2 or W2 than this is one of the ways he can have gotten it.

                            In generation 4, Roost was available as a TM. If he transferred from D/P/Pt/HG/SS he could have taught it Roost then and transferred it to his Gen 5 copy.

                            So in addition to trading it to B2W2 and using the Move tutors to teach it, he can have gotten it from the Dream World or transferred it from a fourth Generation game. So its possible to have it on Black even if the post was made before B2W2 came out.

                                They'll be lost. I tried this with my White 2 when I gave it to my brother and he lost the challenge keys. When you delete your old data it deletes everything from the previous game including unlockables such as the keys.

                                  It means Base Stat Total, so see the last number at the end? http://www.smogon.com/bw/tiers/nu. That's base stat total, which is what the amount of base stats adds up to, so say 70 base stat in attack, 80 in defence etc, all adds up to the BST. Also this is competitive-ish, so it'd better fit into Competitive Team Questions for future reference!

                                  If I recall correctly, BST stands for Base Stat Total.

                                  It's SmogOn...
                                  But as the others said, it's Base Stat Total...
                                  Pretty useless information if you think about it...

                                      The anklet passes down the IV, not the stat.

                                      Power items pass down certain IVs.
