    I have a question, I don't have a screenshot because it caught me off guard, but I was in Waterfall Cave(in PMD Sky), it was the first time through it, when Chatot tells you to explore it, a wild Lotad used Rock Slide.

    Any explanation?

    BTW, this happened about 10 minutes ago.

    Lotad would have used Nature Power, which turned into Rock Slide.

      I guess I missed it when it said Lotad used Nature Power, I just saw "Rock Slide" at a glance and the animation playing.
      Anyways, thank you for clearing that up. :)

      I need help. I recently started playing stadium 2 again.. I am stuck at the Elite four. I need a team to help. I can get to Lance but then it is over very quickly. Any suggestions?

      The team I currently am using:
      Jynx
      Kadabra(Better moveset than Alakazam)
      Fearow
      Electrode
      Hitmonlee
      Dragonair

      Also I don't have a transfer pack or whatever you call it so I must use rentals.

        Okay, So, I'm playing Pokemon Dream Radar (AR Searcher)
        and I'm wondering about the amount of orbs needed to get therian forms
        1.Is it an total amount of orbs, so I can spend my orbs on upgrades, and when I reach 400/500 total orbs in the game, I get tornadus, or, to get tornadus, do I have to save my 400/500 orbs to get tornadus?

        I read about it on Serebii and it just says 'obtain 400 orbs'. So I'm guessing it could just be that you just need to reach 400 orbs, maybe?

        Try it and see.

          OK, another question about PMD EotS.
          Does quicksaving overwrite the saved data?

          I don't believe it does; it's just a way of saving your game if you really need to whilst in a dungeon. If you quick save, and then resume your game, the quick save goes away, and you'd have to quick save again. It shouldn't overwrite your previous save file.

              There's a PMD Rescue Thread here. It's not very active cause I don't think a lot of people are playing PMD lately, but feel free to use it anyway. It's a sticky. Can't miss it and the revival rule doesn't apply to it as well as other stickies.

              I think you're referring to Kris, the female hero from Pokémon Crystal.

                  Hello,

                  I have a Mew on Pokemon Emerald (from the old Pokemon event from years back) and I am trying to teach it the move of "Fake Out" via the Mew Tutor in Pokemon XD. Has anyone been able to figure out the combination of answers to the questions to generate a moveset with fake out in it?

                  Thanks in advance!

                  I tried to find a list of combinations, but nothing seemed to show up. :/ The most I could find was Serebii's list of questions, but not a combination to get Fake Out. Hopefully someone else may come along that knows it. I never had this Mew so I wasn't able to do this.

                    Can I change my main character in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, at the end of the game?

                    I was wondering if at the end of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon (Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky), I am able to change my main character? Do I have to get to a special rank to do so, or is it just impossible? By changing my main pokemon, I mean that I'll be that pokemon, even outside of rescues and dungeons. Thanks!

                    Yeah, I'm pretty sure you can control whichever Pokemon you want after you beat the main game.

                      You can control any Pokémon you have recruited before, but only in dungeons. You cannot change the main Pokémon that was chosen by your personality quiz, as this is the Pokémon that is supposed to represent yourself. It's the one that you walk around in town and at the guild with. If you were asking if it were possible to change the one that represents yourself, you can't. If you just meant you wanted to play as a different Pokémon in a dungeon, you can. Just go to Chimecho, add the Pokémon you want to be, then select that Pokémon and select "Make Leader". Then add/remove any other Pokémon you want to take with you. Keep in mind that the Pokémon you choose only affect your Rescue Team, a.k.a., the ones that go into the dungeon.

                      Since we often have question threads that apply to more than one game, I figured it was about time we added a general question thread to this section to help with clutter and to lessen confusion! :)

                      Rules:
                      - If the question you're going to ask already has a forum dedicated to it, like Black and White, please ask in that section's Q&A thread. Your posts may be deleted if they are specific to one game that already has a thread or belong elsewhere entirely.
                      - Remember that team helps belongs in Battle Center, and you must post movesets when you make a thread in that forum.
                      - This thread can apply, but is not limited to, questions about the following: fake games, migrating between generations, link cable troubles, debating choices of game purchase, changing batteries, etc. as long as it remains within Pokemon gaming.
                      - No "thank you" posts. They will be deleted as spam and you can possibly be infracted if you break this rule constantly. Feel free to thank someone through VM though.

                      Without further ado, let the questions roll!

                        Me and a friend of mine were playing pokemon Emerald when we came across a rare candy.
                        I said''Hey lets use it''
                        He said ''Nah Pokemon better level up with battles.Rare candy level ups dont give them as much stat ups as a regural level up''

                        Is that true?Does leveling up by battle increases the stats more than leveling up with a rare candy?

                        Yeah, but I mean, if you've already accumulated all the EVs you can with that Pokemon, then a Rare Candy won't hurt. So for example, if you caught your Pokemon at level 5, I'm sure that around level 55 it's gotten all the EVs it can have and using a Rare Candy won't make a difference. I tend to just wait to use all my Rare Candies before the E4 so that I won't miss stat gains, but I mean, one harmless Rare Candy isn't gonna hurt you really. Unless you're EVing the Pokemon, I wouldn't worry too much about using a Rare Candy.

                        tl;dr Pokemon get more stat gains by battles, but a Rare Candy is still a nice treat and I recommend saving it till the end of the game for any level boost you might need. :)

                          anyone have ideas how to get the highest possible IV? Are there certain things to look for or what?

                          You can talk to the IV Judge in Emerald, Platinum, HGSS, BW and BW2. In Emerald they're at the Battle Frontier, in Platinum and HGSS at the Battle Tower and in BW and BW2 at the Battle Subway. They'll tell you how high the Pokémon's IVs are in general, what stat has the highest IV, and how good that IV is. If it is perfect, they'll mention how it is flawless or something similar.

                          If you're trying to get good IVs, you could have a parent Pokemon hold the Power Anklet, after you find out the IVs of the parent anyway so that you can pass on their specific IV. This only works in HGSS onward though.

                          Also, if this is for a game on the DS, you could just upload it to Pokecheck. That will tell you the exact IVs as well as the Hidden Power and EVs of the Pokemon. If you don't have WiFi though, then you'll have to use the people that vaporeon7 referred to.

                            Hello all, just signed up for this forum because I have had the craziest urges lately to play pokemon. I used to have silver and gold for a game boy color, the only games I even cared to own for it, with a gameshark. I really did enjoy the games a lot but over the years I moved to console games and then eventually to PC games. The gameboy's been lost for years, it's really sad to think about... Not sure when it started but I know what cemented it, my girlfriend's 6 year old got pokemon black when we got him a DS earlier this year. Just seeing it kicked in some sort of addiction. I remember staying up ALL NIGHT just to get to the "next area". I remember using my gameshark to load up on repels and master balls :).

                            Well, I played black for a couple of hours, but I saw he had like Charizard and some others, not exactly sure how I think he has another game, so I didn't save. That's crap you can only have one save per game, I mean in 2000 ok, but today, it just seems so limiting. I read it's a marketing tactic to sell more cartridges. whatever. Obviously then if I want to play it I'm going to have to buy one of my own damned games..

                            Here's where I need advice. What the hell are all of these goofy pokemon? A silly looking monkey that looks like a pokemon rip off? All you encounter in the first parts of black are a bunch of filthy rats and small dogs. I apologize if that offended anyone. But I think so so so fondly of the pokemon of gold and silver. I remember fishing and I remember Gyarados, of course I remember how important repels were, but I'm skeptical of these new types. (I was exaggerating slightly I was kind of interested to see what Herdier would look like if he evolved again). Basically, every pokemon was cool in those games and now i feel like I have to judge a potentially good pokemon and pass on it because it looks so darn silly.

                            So what game do I invest in if I think the new generation of pokemon are just ridiculous looking? Or is the plot something that overcomes that? It seems like everyone has a different opinion. I mean are Ruby and Saphire decent games with normal looking, sweet pokemon? for some reason I'm leaning toward emerald as a good point to get back into the games. Or should I bite the bullet and suck it up, and try to play black or white which I have heard as being pretty good? I don't know how to reconcile how every pokemon in gold/silver looked really cool and they just don't all seem to in the new ones. And everyone disagrees so I'm just standing on the sidelines exhausted waiting for one side to win. So can somebody please tell me what new generation game is best for a silver/gold fan? I think I'll probably pass on soulsilver/heartgold because I read the plot and my memory is bad but I recognized every town and a lot of the plot so I'd like a surprise. But I can definitely be convinced because I don't remember a lot of it.
