We've both registered each other in our Pal Pads and tried reentering the room, but it still doesn't work. Any help please?

    Also, is there any way to make a request on the GTS for a pokemon you haven't 'seen' or a have a picture of in the pokedex?

      For spA, go to Celestial Tower, everything you fight = spA evs.
      Aaand for speed, go to route 3, you'll find Basculin & Blitzle there as well as Woobat in the cave nearby. :)

        This isn't a trade request, its just a question.
        Is it possible to trade a scyther to white early in the game? Im on my way to get my 4th badge, and id really like to level up and play with a scyther as I go the storyline in white.
        I was just wondering if it was possible because on my gf's soulsilver I traded her all her level 30+ Pokemon from her sapphire and she was only on her 6th badge. I dont want to wait until I can poke transfer because that kind defeats the purpose of me wanting to go through the storyline with the scyther.

        If someone with Black and White has a Scyther, then yes, but any other games, you cannot til post-game. The quick trade thread can be useful for that, so you could try and see if anyone will help you out there.

          I reckon it's possible to get one through the dream world. It'll probably take a lot of Dream Points though.

            I can't figure out how to trade and or battle with somebody on pkmn white. (Not with somebody in the same room, i mean in another state)
            I know you go to the poke-center but which of the 3 "doors" do I go to?

            You speak to the middle person. They will allow you to go into Wifi. If you have never been in before; they'll connect you to your Wifi and then you'll leave. That's when you get your Friend Code etc..

              Unless you use an AR or Pokesav, you can't find out yourself unfortunately. You have to start from scratch with a Pokemon (or use EV-reducing berries down to 0) and then count from there.

The Pokemon they give out are based on the number of votes for the specified event and are replicas of Pokemon given away at the events. It's up to you to decide if this is a hack or not--the site functions similarly to the way official events run (and distribute official-looking Pokemon), but isn't official. However, they make and transmit them the same way the events do, so there's really no difference except who is giving them out.

                It's a nice idea for players who live in areas without events (since their Wi-Fi is global), but it gets out of hand because you can get infinite of any Pokemon they are currently giving out on one cartridge. But then again, what's stopping you from bringing more than one cart to an actual event?

                However, it's generally good form to avoid redistributing / trading the Pokemon. PokeStation was made to help players obtain events they couldn't get normally, not give you bargaining chips for other valued Pokemon. You are intended to keep what you get for yourself--not depreciate the value of everyone else's hard-earned event Pokemon. Plus, the added kind-of controversy about it should be avoided too. So yeah, keep them for yourself, train them, battle with them, breed them, but don't trade them.
                The events we distribute are recieved from the official events. We extract the .pkm after recieving the Wonder Card & upload them to our servers. Our Event Database is 100% legit events only, we don't upload any which are not legit.

                We also host the official .pgf (.pcd & .pgt for DP/Pt/HG/SS) files for the Wonder Cards.

                I do hope this clears up the discusion of whether our events are legit or not. :)

                  Early on you can get Pidove @ Route 3, but from what I've heard it doesn't carry through that well in-game. Woobat can be okay @ first cave you'll see, but considering most of Plasma has dark types, probably not useful for you. Sigilyph @ Desert Resort, same sort of issue as Woobat really but Magic Guard can be really useful. :x Archen is apparently useful and found in Route 4 @ the Desert Resort in that tower there, so somewhat early on. Next flying type you'll find is Ducklett which can be useful for the gym leader around there (Driftveil) but otherwise doesn't really prove an advantage overall. Finally you have Rufflet's line and Vullaby's line, both pretty good imo and found in Route 10, so really late in the game. And then there's the flying genies which are found around Unova after the 8th gym so you're probably not going to go with them. Either way, merging to Quick Questions for more thoughts which is where this belongs next time.

                    I ended up using my Pidove (which eventually became Unfezant) through the entire game from the start. Worked fine for me. As for Archen, I got Tirtouga instead :D

                            Because each one has different letters. It's like a serial number. The only bit that matters is 'USA' meaning it's from the United States. Like 'JPN' is Japan and 'EUR' is Europe.

                              I am having trouble with the Nacrene City gym, one book says to go two backwards one to the left two forward one to the right then one backwards...

                              but i cannot do that, I cannot go to the one to the right, I run into something, I am totally stuck and I cannot get any further in Pokemon Black

                              Oh that's easy - go to the middle bookshelf and talk to the girl (it has awkward wording indeed), she's your last challenge. :)

                                Yes, but it kinda makes no sense, I have 2 games from Japan, both have the TWL at the beginning, so does my US black version?

                                TWL means for the DSi and above (aka region-locked), while NTR means for the original Nintendo DS (aka not-region locked).

                                In other words you can play the one you brought online on any version of the DS (either Japanese etc).

                                lol didn't see this before :x

                                  Sorry Forever, but I play the TWL on my regular ds, not a dsi, are you sure it isn't the other way around??

                                  Region-locking only applies if you're playing a DSi or above, so yes although B/W are primarily made for that system (aka why they have TWL) they can play in a normal DS no matter whether they're Japanese or English.

                                  Not entirely sure why your other version would have NTR though. :x Actually, all versions are meant to be TWL so it seems you have a fake..

                                  In other words as long as you continue playing your normal DS none of this matters - however if you go up to DSi you won't be able to play the Japanese versions on it.

                                    Sorry again Forever, so the NTR that I bought online is or will be a fake??
                                    I haven't gotten it yet, so...
                                    I bought it and then read the letters on it an thought it was a fake right off, didn't think to look before I bought!!
