Do you know any guide that explains how to build up a team? E.g.: how many (physical/special) sweepers do I need? How many (phys/spec) walls do I need? And last but not least: how to build up a moveset? I didn't find any of those guides on this forum (or I overlooked them).

Thx in advance

Well there's no actual guide really. It depends on the playstyle you're aiming for, pretty much. If you're going for balanced... then having at least one physical/special sweeper is a good thing since you can hurt things that'd otherwise not really be hurt by those attacks (aka Skarmory versus Blissey). Something to set up hazards can also come in handy, as well as a supporter in general (aka Blissey or whatever you use to use Wishes and so on). Generally something with priority helps and then a Pokemon to tie them all together. PC doesn't actually have any guides along those lines, but when the upcoming improved guides do go ahead that kind of stuff could probably be included. As for movesets, generally things that'd cover your weaknesses. For example, Reuniclus. Psyshock/Shadow Ball/Focus Blast/TR. First = STAB, second = cover your weakness to ghost and allows you to hit other psychic types, third = covers steel which you otherwise can't hurt much and dark types which your other two attacks don't do anything to. And finally TR so you can outspeed all your opponents. So really with building movesets you want maximum coverage against things that are commonly threats to you.

Either way these sort of questions are probably best suited to Competitive Battling Center's Simple Q&A, since this thread is mainly for help with things in-game and not really how to build teams and the terminology.

    The only way you can change your Pokémon's name is through the Name Rater (or catching a Pokémon and nicknaming it when it asks you to). It's called a nickname but your Pokémon is stuck with it throughout everything so it's practically its 'name' anyway.

      To add to this in case you don't know where the name rater is: He's in Castelia city in the street north of the central plaza. He's in one of the building in the left side of that street.

          What are examples of unresisted movesets?

          Thank you

          P.S. Might I nudge your sights upward to my other unanswered questions lol. Contrarily, might I elicit a more apt response in other threads i.e. those more relevant?

          Thanks again

          Additionally, which combinations provide overall coverage? Not simply in theoretical terms as Fire/Ground is considered complete but does not phase Aerodactyl.

            Natures affect the stats. An adamant nature, for example, boosts the attack stat, while lowers the special attack stat. It's wise to use a nature that boosts the stat you're highest in, or should be highest in. For example, if you're using a choice item, you should boost the speed with a speed boosting nature - usually jolly or timid (if it's an attacking item instead of scarf), since you're already getting the boost from the choice item. So for competitive battling this becomes an important thing.

              According to Bulbapedia, Mewtwo is available from 2/12 to 3/6. The game says "there were no gifts to be found." Did distribution end early?

              According to Serebii a few days ago on the 25th:

              Quote:
              Pokémon Black & White - Mewtwo WiFi Event Live

              For those of you with the English language games, the Mewtwo WiFi event is about to reach the first of its possible end dates. This event is accessible by all English language games and according to some official text is due to end tomorrow.
              The actual website doesn't have an end date on it though (on Pokemon.com), but there was nothing on Serebii saying it was going to continue so I believe Bulbapedia is in the wrong here.

              Well there was another announcement that said it ended on the date Toujours posted, which was before the announcement that said it finished on the 6th. Unfortunately, the first announcement appears to be right and the second one wasn't correct. :( You can always see if someone in the Quick Trade Thread in Trade Corner is willing to trade a special Mewtwo to you, though!

                I just booted up my copy of Pokemon White, purchased the day it was released last year. After the title screen shows, I find out that it only gives me an option to start a New Game. What happened to my saved game? I spent a lot of time on that game and I don't want to lose it!

                I'm afraid that it's probably too late to do anything. Someone has deleted the saved data on the game (or your game glitched and did it itself.)

                  I need some help understanding EVs, I've read the FAQ section of the forums but I still don't get it. To get attack EV I must fight Lillipups and Patrat (?) I'm not 100% sure on the names. Does that mean I have to level up the Pokemon I want to gain attack EV in that area? Killing level 5-10 with a level 25?

                  I never usually play the technical stuff with games (including WoW). I'm sure there are tonnes of posts about this but could you spare me a few minutes of explanation?

                  Thanks! :laugh:

                  You don't have to level up the Pokemon while you EV train, though the Pokemon you're training might level up in the process (depending on whether or not you have the Macho Brace or a Power item attached). It's best to stick to the areas that contain low level Pokemon just so you don't get KOed that easily.

                    Well you could go find the Sages, catch every Pokemon in the region, get all the items in the Musicals, try to do as well as you can in the Battle Subway, train your Pokemon to level 100, and so on. Since this is pretty much a quick question, merging with Quick Questions in case somebody else can think of something else to add, and this isn't really discussion-worthy.

                      Of course, there's always a slight chance of hatching a shiny Pokémon no matter what kind of Pokémon it is.

                        Go to main menu when the game starts. Go to the third option "mystery gift". Click it. Click recieve gift. Click okay. Click "get via nintendo wfc". Click okay. Wait. Click Zekrom or Reshiram. Click yes. Recieve it. Pick it up from the Pokemon Centre.

                        For the second one, go to Dream World with your Zekrom or Reshiram and if you play the mini-game you'll get the C-Gear skin unlocked. Go to the customisation page (iirc, below promotions on the far right of the main global link screen) afterwards once you're done and then set the skin to your default skin. Then wake your Pokemon up. The C-Gear skin will then be that skin.
