    Random question, but if you used Toxic on a pokemon with the ability 'Poison heal' I think its called. Would the amount of hp it restores increase each turn like toxic's effect gets worse, or does it stay the same amount? Sorry if this is the wrong place. :)

      What are the chances of the baby of a Shiny Male and a Foreign Female being shiny?

        FF : FFFF = 4x8 : 65536 = 4 : 4096 = 1 : 1024

        So, in theory, you would have to breed 1024 eggs to get a shiny one. But in the non-theoretical life, it depends on your luck.

        Does any one of the Pokémon you haven't listed know the move Sky Drop? It's banned in online play because of a glitch that can be exploited when Gravity is in effect.

        http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Sky_Drop_glitch

        And here's all the rules for Random Matchups:

        http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Rule_variants#Global_Battle_Union
        Nope, there's also Beheeyem and Jellicent.
        No Pokemon knows Sky Drop.
        And I'm pretty sure I meet all the rules :(

          It just heals the regular 1/8th of your HP.

            Depends on what moves you want the Pokemon to know, when the Pokemon learns them, and when you want to evolve them. Once you've made sure that the Pokemon knows what moves you want them to learn (or haven't missed learning them), then you can evolve them if you want.

            As far as I know, Phione isn't one of the "unshiny" Legendaries in B/W. I haven't heard anything about Phione being programmed to never appear shiny in those games. (I could be wrong, however.)

              You have to calculate that as you fight, there's no way to actually check it without using an Action Reply unfortunately. There's probably someone that would check it for you though using one, but I don't think this is the place you would look for them.

                What does it mean when all stats are equal?
                Like my attack, sp. attack etc. are all 6.

                Is that anything special or not? D:

                That's pretty common for low-leveled Pokémon, actually. Nothing special really, sorry :/

                  Hi, can someone check to see if I'm calculating EVs right?

                  suppose that I'm increasing my dewott's special atk by fighting litwick which give 1 EV each. dewott has pokerus and is holding power lens (+4 special atk).
                  (1EV from litwick + 4EV from power lens) x2 from pokerus = 10 special atk EV from fighting one litwick?

                  if I give it a power weight (+4 HP) instead of a power lens then it would be this?
                  (1EV from litwick + 4HP from power weight) x2 from pokerus = 2 special atk EV and 8 HP EV??

                  Yup, moon_light. You have that exactly right. Pokerus doubles all EVs gained, whether they're from Power items or simply battling. ^_^

                    does macho brace come before pokerus too?

                    Yep, pretty much. So essentially, slap a Macho Brace on a Pokemon with Pokerus and that Pokemon will gain four times the EVs it normally would from each wild Pokemon battle (ie four Sp. Atk EVs from each Litwick). Power items are still your best bet, though. More focused and faster.

                        You'll need an account on Pokemon.com first. After you create your account on Pokemon.com, within pokemon-gl.com you'll have to register your game card to that account. To do this, go onto your Pokémon game's main menu (The one right after the title screen) and select Game Sync Settings (or something like that).

                        There'll be a code that you have to input into your pokemon-gl.com account in order to sync your game to your online account. Once you do that, just tuck in a Pokémon by pressing the Online button on your C-Gear and then pressing Game Sync.

                        After that, just go log in to the website and click the Dream World button. :)

                          My brother can't register to pokemon.com.
                          After he confirms his account on gmail, nothing happens and he cannot login.

                              That's odd. o_O

                              So you made sure the account was verified, yeah? Well, uh, what happens when he tries to login? Are you able to login to your account just fine?

                              Could have something to do with the parental stuff. My sister had the same problem. She registered using her own e-mail, but later I think it told her something along the lines that a parent e-mail account has to verify the account. Depends on how young your brother is, though.

                                When he tries to login, he gets the message that he still needs to verify the account. Which he's already done.
                                My account works fine.

                                  Is it possible to soft-reset for a certain nature in the entree forest (where you catch the dream world poke you encountered on global link?)

                                    Yes. I've read online of people soft resetting to get the right nature on their Dream World Pokémon.

                                      There's something on here in the FAQ for Pokemon.com:

                                      Quote:

                                      Creating a new account as simple to do. To create a new account, visit the signup page and follow the instructions.

                                      If you are under the age of consent, you will be required to have a parent or guardian create an account as well.

                                      If you are a parent assisting your child with creation of an account that includes a Play! Pokémon player ID, please make sure that you are adding that ID to the appropriate account. After the accounts have been created, log in to the parent account, and click your child's name in the "My Family" section of your profile.


                                      Once in your child's account, clicking the "Play! Pokémon" tab will bring up the window where you can enter their Player ID and PIN.

                                      There's also another page about it too. I'll let you read both? xD


                                      http://support.pokemon.com/ics/support/KBAnswer.asp?questionID=63
                                      http://support.pokemon.com/ics/support/KBAnswer.asp?questionID=69


                                      In short though, if the child is under age (Probably 13 or something), then a parent needs to make an account as well to verify the child.

                                        To clarify, you SR before going into the Entralink at all, since you can't save in there.
