I'm sorry, but no. Lucario makes the game way easier and I hate seeing it on over half of teams. V_V

Then again, it's your playthrough, so if you want to use it, sure.

      In terms of level up moves and stats Riolu is not good... yet!
      It'll be a beast though, when it evolves during the day with high happiness!

        Interesting...It's cool to see people's differences of opinions. You're saying that Riolu is average at best, but the first guy who commented seemed to think that Riolu was above average to the point that it tips the scales and makes the game easier.

          I think he meant by making the progress easier is when Rio becomes Lucario, whom is one of the best Pokemon in competitive. I'm not an all time user of Lucario, but i have it and I say it's impressive as well!

            Yes, Riolu is a good addition to the team, but it's hard to find. Sewaddle, Lillipup and Mareep are good early-game additions as well.

            If you have a Water Pokemon on the team, teach that Pokemon Blizzard (you can buy the Blizzard TM at Lacunosa Town). For physically oriented Pokemon, you can teach it Ice Punch, if possible, for 10 Red Shards at Driftveil City.

            If you have any access to Ice-type moves or a non-Dragon who can learn Dragon moves, that will help you. I personally used a Lucario with Ice Punch, but any Ice-type move given to a Pokemon who is on the fast side or can handle a decent hit can help. Or you can teach a Pokemon who is not of the Dragon type a Dragon move to handle that weakness.

            Most of the available Electric types learn Thunder Wave. Once its paralyzed, that Haxorus is a sitting ducklett and will fall to two or three unresisted hits. Thats the strategy I use, anyway. This makes most npc battles a breeze, actually.

              Okay, so this has been bothering me for a while so I came here to clear things up.

              In previous games, the swarm location always changed at midnight. But in my Black 2, sometimes the swarm location changes several times a day without warning. Other days it doesn't change at all. I just want to know if this is normal or if something is wrong with my game. Does anyone have any idea?

              If you turn off your DS without saving since the last midnight, the swarm location can change when you start up again. Basically, you could soft-reset for swarms. If thats not what is happening, then I have no idea, sorry.

                I think you are right. I saved my game yesterday around 11 pm. I just turned it on and it said Abundant Shrine was the swarm. I reset it without saving and then it said the swarm was at Route 9. So yeah, you pretty much explained it. Thanks!

                If it still acts funky, I will come back here for more advice. Thanks again.

                  My Black 2 team has recently arrived in Castelia City and learned about Burgh's disappearance. I'd like to search the sewers for clues, but I can't find an entrance in the right direction. I keep getting lost in and around the docks pictured in this screenshot. If anybody here could please show me to the sewer entrance, I'd be very grateful.

                  Just go down the steps on that screen and follow the path. The entrance to the sewers is down there on the left.

                    Down the stairs and around the pier. The entrance is a little hard to spot but it's there. Go down the small stairs below you and follow the small path around the edge of the pier until you reach the entrance.

                    Go south (the path next to the worker) and then trough the narrow path... then... you will see entrance

Other days it doesn't change at all. I just want to know if this is normal or if something is wrong with my game. Does anyone have any idea?
                      Can someone explain what a "swarm" is?

                        Swarms are Pokemon that are usually rare or even not available for that region that appears suddenly with swarms of that Pokemon on a certain location.

                        Examples:

                        DPt - Professor Rowan's assistant Dawn/Lucas's sister will tell you the swarms of the day,
                        including Snubull, Smoochum etc...

                        HgSs - Prof. Oak's channel broadcasts the swarms of the day, including Luvdisc, Swablu,
                        Chansey etc...

                        BW/BW2 - Bulletin Board from across the Unova region Gates annouces the swarms like
                        Volbeat, Minun, Hippowdon etc...

                        RSE - TV broadcasts the swarms like Lotad, Skitty etc...

                        Most games requires the player to complete the main story game to activate this feature.

                          Oh, so that's a Swarm? The bulletin board constantly calls for "outbreak"s. Is that the same thing?

                            It's exactly the same thing.

                            Swarm is an ability that powers-up bug-type moves.


                            Anyways, as the others said, it's just outbreak. Swarm is older name. But the new generation games renamed it so it may cause some misunderstandings.

                              So I do a lot of breeding, and thought it would be worth while to get myself a nursery in my Join Ave to help things along.

                              It has been extremely helpful, as I can basically go from being handed an egg to it hatching in about 3 minutes (even with 41 egg cycles). This also means I can reset for egg IVs/natures right? Because the IVs and natures are generated when you are handed the egg?

                              Nay nay. I saved right before getting the egg from the day-care, then flew to Join Ave and hatched it at the nursery. Checked the IVs and they weren't what I wanted, so I soft reset. Repeated the process and...

                              got the same exact nature and IVs. Not gender though...

                              So I decided to try again and hatch the egg normally. It ALSO had the same nature and stats.

                              So what's going on? I thought everything about an egg was determined when you receive it from the daycare, not when it was first generated in the day-care. Did this change for gen 5 or something? Or did I encounter a glitch somewhere along the way?

                                While exploring Relic Castle, I got a "ping" from the Dowsing Machine; however, my screenshot didn't reveal any item where I was standing. What do I do to get this hidden object when the usual "press A" doesn't work?
