    Is this a good way or is there a more efficient way?


    btw, i really really appreciate all the help.

    Another good spot is in the battle subway, you can hold down the left button and go around and around forever. I sometimes do this so that you can be reading something else, while passively hatching eggs. :)

      Atk
      Route 1 - Lillipup (50%, 1 Atk) and Patrat (50%, 1 Atk)


      I saw that in the EV pokemon guide. What does the 50% mean as opposed to some pokemon that have 100%

      50% appearance rate. Half of the Pokemon there are Lillipups, and half of them are Patrats.

        I have to kill 126 litwicks instead of 63 because my dratini cannot fight them herself as she is too low a level. How do people normally deal with this and raise their ev training pokemons level without ruining the distribution?

          Well, its a task of patience. When you're playing the main story, it would be very time consuming to EV train at the same time. while after the main story, you have greater mobility and a lot more options to train with.

          Once a Pokemon's EV's are maxed they don't change, so you only have to do it once per Pokemon, which is a reasonable goal for most people. Since once you're done you can battle all you want and whatever you want to get to lvl 100.

            One hopefully last question :P:

            What are the groups like for the nature types for breeding. For example if I want a timid nature charmander, what kind of charmander nature would help breed a timid nature?
            It's all random unless the mother or Ditto is holding an Everstone, then that Pokemon's nature will have a 50% chance of transferring over. So you'll need to either get a Timid mommy Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard or a Timid Ditto. Just a note that this won't work if the parents are from different countries.

            Also, when I have to fight Pokemon that are higher leveled than me in EV's, I'll just switch them out. You know, like, have them in the lead, then switch immediately to someone who already maxed out their EVs and are presumably strong enough to hold their own. They'll still get the EV points, and it won't be shared like Experience.

            That was only in fourth generation, that works in this generation.

              Wow so simple. So I can get the x4 with my dratini holding a macho brace and having pokerus, all i have to do is switch him out right away. Sweet :D

              Can anyone confirm this works for x4 EVs before I start the training?

                What's best for a Brave Golett, it being "Quick tempered" or it being "Capable of taking hits."?

                  After getting pokemon white ROBBED from me, I sought out to get another copy, because I'm determined to make an epic pokemon team for competitive battling. I thought mostly about typing and a mix between walls, sweepers, and powerhouses. In total, I got a whopping 7 immunities, and 9 resistances from 6 pokemon. I was wondering if this team (by far) would be a good team:

                  1. Cobalion. The strategy I have in mind for this one is to power it up with Swords Dance/Rock Polish, and then let loose with Sacred Sword/Iron Head. It has to be faced with a pokemon with moves that are basically terrible against it, like say...Scissor, or it won't work.

                  2. Chandelure. This is to cover the fire weakness for Cobalion. With Flash Fire, switching in Chandelure gives me a boost on fire moves. I'm thinking about a Will-O-Wisp and Hex combo, but I'm not sure. But Shadow Ball and Flamethrower are a MUST! If I am faced with a Dark type, I could switch in Cobalion to take advantage of the Justified ability. But Pursuit would really kill me...

                  3. Salamence. Salamence provides a ground immunity, protecting Cobalion, Chandelure, and Metagross (See #5). Salamence is my sweeper, and nothing more to it. Dragon Dance would work well, I guess. Also, I don't have to worry about that 4X Ice weakness, because the rest of the team can take Ice moves pretty well.

                  4. Politoed. Politoed was added to destroy the Bulky Water types that lurk about...sort of. But that Drizzle ability is awesome.

                  5. Metagross. I added Metagross to add resistances to Flying and Psychic. Both types are troublesome, as Psychics usually have Ghost-Type moves to destroy Chandelure, and Flying types to get rid of Politoed. Earthquake is a must to get rid of the few Electric pokemon that are around. And...Meteor Mash and Psychic work well too.

                  6. Chansey. A Special Wall. That and the Evolite will do just fine. The Ghost immunity will help, because Chandelure will be faced against many bad moves like SHADOW BALL.

                        I'm sorry to hear your game got robbed.

                        http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=197

                        Since you're making a competitive team, post in here. However, I think you should start fleshing out your team, with some natures, EVs, and especially movesets.

                        @Pwnyta Jockey:

                        Share Shelf Trading: 1 Point
                        Berry Picking: 10 Points
                        Watering a friend's berries: 10 Points
                        Winning a minigame: 10 to 30 Points
                        Sending a Pokemon to the Entree Forest: 50 Points

                        So from this, it doesn't look like there's any perks to being someone's Dream Pal. However, all my resources seem to say "friend's" berries. It's unclear whether it's a stranger or Dream Pal this is awarding points to; I'm assuming the former, actually.

                        @ceremony:
                        It sort of depends. You may get a high IV out of those, or you may get a low one. After all, having the characteristic "Capable of taking hits" has a possibility of you having your IV for Defense as 1, 6, 11, 16, 21, 26, or 31 (It's probably not the lower numbers though).

                        I suggest using Veekun's stat calculator to determine IV's.

                        http://veekun.com/dex/gadgets/stat_calculator

                        Hopefully you haven't battled or used any vitamins on them yet, and if you did, I hope you know what EV's you allocated them to (Or maybe you can approximate if you don't really know).

                          Hey, i was contemplating taking a few of my legitly trained pokemon on the new random battle system today, but before i do that can anyone tell me what its like? For example do people use hacked pokemon and teams full of Ubers and shinies with perfect Ivs?
                          I personally only play with pokemon ive raised from eggs in game with their legit imperfect evs and hard to earn egg moves. Just makes the game seem so much more fun when you win with something you have invested alot of time in.

                            Um, I dont really battle, but im pretty sure you cant use ubers and legendaries like Zekrom, Reshiram, Victini, unless perhaps theres an option to? But yeah, you cant ^_^. People probably use hacks because their too lazy, but most people probably wouldnt.

                                You must've poked it. Try poking it again.

                                If you touch the Pokémon in the status screen, they'll switch from front sprite to back sprite. :)

                                @geek2k8: Echoing with Seeds Horizon said, there probably will be some illegitimate Pokémon with megastats hanging around Random matchups. But I'm sure the ratio would be so low, and if you care about ratings, the amount of battles you'll win over a few bad apples in the mix would be nothing to really worry about. Besides, you can always just disconnect right in their faces once you realize their Pokémon are blatant fakes. :V

                                    DREAM WORLD

                                    20 some minutes til i can next do Dream World.
                                    Haven't yet woken my last tucked in Pokemon.

                                    Will NOT waking waking it interfere with a later Dream World attempt?

                                    It necessary to wake the tucked in during the Dream World's "cycle" of 24 hours?

                                        Nah, I don't think it's needed to. I kept my Golurk inside the Dream World after my 1 hour was up, for instance. So yeah, I think everything will be fine. XD

                                        @Neiko Star: Try getting a nature that favors Speed. Zoroark would be pretty deadly as long as it's faster than its opponent (Since its Defenses aren't that good). Timid will work, that's +Spd -Atk. If you have a mixed Zoroark, then consider Naive, which is +Spd -Sp.Def.

                                          Timid, to take advantage of its good Speed. You can use Hasty if you're planning to use physical and special moves on it.

                                              Im not 100% sure on this, but most likely. Seeing as buffs like Dragon Dance Or Quiver..Dance I think it was? Stack, so most likely debuffs stack as well.
