Depending on which version you have, you probably want to use it on the roaming legendary, as it tends to give the most grief to people. You also get two in the game, so you could use the other on Kyurem or Landorus or save them in case you ever find a shiny exploding Pokémon. Don't use it on Reshiram/Zekrom as they have the same catch rate as an Onix.

Magikarp?
Seriously... Master Ball isn't actually needed in BW...
There aren't Pokémon that are really hard to catch.
You can use it when you don't want to waste time on capture or like vaporeon mentioned on rare shiny.

    I'm not denying that. Like I said, the item guy at Nurse Joy's counter at Icirrus' Pokémon Centre will give you that for one Star Piece (you need two at a Pokémart, those scam artists). By the time you "step" to Lv.98, you'll probably have five or six of those if you go seeking them.

    Meanwhile, I just reread about Heart Pieces being obtainable at Driftveil this morning. I need to start looking at those options and stock some away in case I need a Pokémon to relearn a move for breeding. I do intend to become both Pokémon Master and breeding superstar. ;) Shinies not so much, but I will accept them in trades; is there a difference when breeding with Shinies? ;)

    My roamer strategy was different. The evening I unlocked it by getting the Legend Badge and heading to Route 10 (where I'd been multiple times, but the event only occurs then), I didn't have a lot of time up to midnite, so I went and started wittling away its HP in two or three encounters. I then hit the end of the day; in the early morning it started hanging out in the eastern Unova areas out of my reach (at that time). That bugged me, but I did my other daily business at that point and spent the overnite at Nimbasa Town. While in bed, I decided to bring my Watchog (Super Fang and Hypnosis FTW!!!) to the fight. Since it knows Mean Look, all I had to do was flash the look on my free first turn and that roamer was done roaming. The next morning, I executed my plan on Route 5. I failed once as Watchog got dropped, then Tornadus ran away next turn. My second attempt went in my favour and I captured it, I think in a Dusk Ball or Great Ball or something. So my Master Ball sits unused. I'm stupid like that, I do things the hard way.

    As for getting two in game, there is indeed a second, but I think you have to trade so many times and then get it at a Pokémon Center (Castelia?) as a reward. There are other items too.

    It doesn't have to be the first slot. In fact, if the other five are unaffected, placing it in the middle spreads the "disease" quicker. I would plant them at the second and fifth slots, and 2-3 battles later, back to the PC to redeposit.

    I haven't infected my newest recruits yet, but my Musketeers (who I was going to keep pure) accidentally joined some Pokérus holders, so they are now doubling their EVs. Not like it matters. I don't think they can go on Wifi.

      Hey guys, I have a problem connecting to wifi on my Pokemon Black and White on my DSi and it always pop up this error code: 91010 for every 2-3 minutes when I connecting to wifi. My wifi never had a problem and works well with my Platinum game so Idk why in Black and White it always messed up too much.

      When I search over the internet, it said that this problem might happened because of Friend Roster problems but I already try those thing by deleting one by one my Friend's FCs on Pal Pad until none of them anymore on my Pal Pad but it still not working.

      I try to delete my internet connection on my DSi and setup it back but Idk why it still can solve this problem. I also check on my router setting for MAC filtering, Firewall WEP key and all things like that and all of them are fine. I emailed Nintendo Customer Service last week but they not even helping me.

      Its already more than 2 weeks this problem happened to me, so please, I really need a help to solve this problem. Thank you.

      Not true. The odds of you hatching a shiny egg are the same odds of you seeing a wild shiny Pokemon.

      This is true unless of course the parents are of different languages, then the chance is higher. This still applies to non-shiny Pokémon also.

      Whoops; forgot to take that in account. *facepalm*

      Anyway, my own question: is weather (rain, hail, sandstorm) a factor when I'm RNGing for a Pokemon?

      No, I don't think so. Weather is just for aesthetic purposes I think.

      Yes, weather is a factor, it'll mess up the results. You can get rid of it by saving your game on the route you want, changing the month on your DS the the required month, and then battling a wild Pokémon. Then you can just save with clear weather there and do your RNG as normal.

        Thing is, there are routes where it rains (or, this month, SNOWS) all the time. It's hit and miss getting good weather. I think I had two rainy days in a row on Route 7 while hanging out there training.

          No. They can only be battled once per game.

            If it takes you a long time to find Black City then less trainers appear than the maximum 10. So if you completed the game in a few hours you'd have all 10, but ofc that's impossible, which is annoying of GF. You'll need to connect with other trainers with local wifi in order to get more :(

            Aaand if you don't visit it everyday, you'll start losing all 7 and the buildings associated with them. :x

                Not quite sure what you are asking....but Pokemon have always been able to pass abilities as the Abilities are default for Pokemon. If they don't get their Hidden ability then they get the ability they are normally born with.

                  Ok, I'll say it like this:
                  I want a Adamant Bouffalant with Sap Sipper. During my breeding, i got a few adamant ones, unfortunatly, they all had Reckless for ability. I was just wondering if there is a way to increase the chance of getting a specific abillity.

                    Dream World abilities have a 60% chance of appearing if the Dream World Pokemon was Female. Only the Mothers can pass on the Dream World ability and they cannot be bred with Ditto.

                    So basically only way to breed Dream World abilities is to acquire a Female Pokemon of the species you are trying to breed with its Dream World ability, the Father MUST be male and from the same breed group.

                    Genderless and Ditto cannot pass on Dream World abilities. Males also cannot pass on Dream World abilities.

                      But im not talking about DW abilities! im talking about normal abilities. Pokemon that have 2 Abilities have a chance to have one of them, no? so is there a way to increase the chance of having one of the 2 abilities by passing it on via breeding?

                      No, there is no way of increasing your chance of getting specific non-Dream World ability.

                        Hello users! My birthday was eight days ago [07/28] and my mother was nice enough to buy me BW. I've never played 5th generation, so I was wondering if you, the community, could give me any tips, tricks and cheatcodes free pokemon lapdance advice! What pokemon should I have at the beginning? What's the best starter in your opinion?

                        Thanks in advance!

                        Happy birthday for eight days ago! Unfortunately this kinda question fitted in the Quick Questions sticky sooo I merged it here in case anyone had anything in particular to add. In my experience, Snivy is a lot harder to use at the start, whereas Oshawott and Tepig are a lot easier - Tepig especially for its typing (and Scrafty in particular is useful at the elite four, beating 3/4 of the people there, while for early on, Tepig's evolution line is effective against most things!) I'll leave other suggestions up to everyone else, buuut hopefully you have fun playing through B/W and feel free to ask as many questions as you want in this thread!

                        I'll give you my thoughts on each starter.

                        As Nica said, Snivy is the hardest to use due to low offensive power and a terrible movepool. It's built as a support-based Pokemon so don't expect it hitting as hard as the other two. Snivy's main selling points are Defense, Special Defense and Speed while having low HP, Attack and Special Attack. I only recommend Snivy for advanced players or for those who like it.

                        Tepig is OK, but it's stuck with weak moves for a while. Once it gets Hammer Arm (from the Reminder Girl) as an Emboar it starts getting good. It also has a good movepool. It gets a Fighting-type upon evolution and it hits pretty hard with its main stats being Attack, Special Attack and HP while its Defense, Special Defense and Speed are less than stellar. Tepig is the middle-of-the-road choice based on what I studied.

                        Oshawott was what I chose when I played Black and I had a good run with it. Its movepool is not too shallow and its stats are balanced (as is common with Water-type starters). It can also use both physical and special moves effectively. It's a good choice for beginners so if you're feeling doubt, pick Oshawott so that you have an easy run through the game.

                        Overall, I'd give these ratings for the starters:

                        3/10
                        7/10
                        9/10

                          I just recently started using my Vanillite who is at level 22. I can't decide what moves to give him as he levels up. Does anyone have any suggestions?
