      Just to play it safe, I wouldn't use AR on your game at all if you're going to be entering a competition.

      Breeding mechanics are slightly different than in Gen IV, so yeah, you can. I don't see why you'd want to though, since it's faster to just to bike around and continuously get new eggs.

        I was wondering how one would accurately calculate a lvl.1 pokemon's IVs without using an AR.

          You can't, really. \; You could try asking someone who has an AR.

          Nothing. They are both the same abilities. So before you say, yes, Delibird got trolled badly. :P

            Vital Spirit prevents a pokemon from sleeping in battle and outside of battle it increases your chances of meeting higher lvled pokemon.

            Insomnia prevents sleep for both pokemon in battle (I think), but has no effects outside of battle.

            The effect is pretty much the same, but Vital Spirit is mostly for Fighting types (and a few others, but mostly pretty tough Pokémon, exterior wise), and Insomnia is more seen with nocturnal Pokémon (mostly dark, psychic, and so on).

            Also, it decreases the chance of encountering high lvl Pokémon by 50%, instead of increasing.

              What I've just tried doing is going to that battle challenge place near the stadium town which would bring the lvl.1 pokemon to lvl.50 and then recording their stats and inputting it into the Serebii Calculator, would this provide accurate enough calculation?

              I don't think they would be 100% accurate, but surely more accurate then when you calculate it on a lvl. 1 Pokémon.

                Pokécheck is a useful service that can be used to check a Pokémon's IVs.

                  That looks extremely useful, but it appears its only for DSi and such, I am using my 3DS now because for some reason my DSi will no longer connect to the internet.

                    It is for any DS system. I have an original Ds and I can connect fine. Try editing the wifi settings from the c gear menu.

                    What I do to check IVs is to save the game and use my 10 Rare Candies, then check the IVs, then reset the game without saving. That way I don't lose my candies and still have a more accurate IV check.

                    Granted, it's not even close to perfect but it's better than checking a level 1 Pokemon.

                        You probably can't transfer a Pokemon from Black to HG, can you?

                          No, you can't. You can move up generation, but not down.

                          Could someone please help me find my SID?

                          I really need to find my secret ID, can someone help?

                            It means that they're untouched, as in haven't been EV'd, etc.

                                I have a question. In my HeartGold game I was planning on changing the time on the clock so I can challenge the gym leaders as fast and as much as possible. Right before I was going to start my brother warned me that if I change the times like that in my White game the White Forest won't have anything there. Is this true? One note though, I haven't gotten to the White Forest yet, so I was wondering if it'll be blank when I get there.

                                Yes, I know if I went up against a good enough fire type I'd be screwed, but that's the fun of it.

                                If you keep changing the clock, yes, you have the potential to lose everyone originally in your White Forest. You'll have to connect with a black then.

                                If you change it a lot there's a chance it will, ESPECIALLY if you change it forwards instead of backwards. White Forest is based on play time mostly, as far as I know, but changing the clock will risk it so I would get to the forest, catch all the Pokemon you can, and then bother with changing the clock.

                                Are all men stupid?

                                That's right.

                                  Would it matter if I did the clock-changing stuff before I got to that point in the game? Like I said I've only just recently beaten the 5th gym leader. Also, What would cause it to erase like that?
