    *shrugs* I dont think you can buy them at the Route 9 store, so your best bet would just be to do it like your doing ^_^. I know some NPCs give em away..Only ones I can remember is like the Sunstones and Moonstones though, and the one that gives you a Grass/Fire/Waterstone to evolve your Monkeh (though you can use it for anything, and pick whichever you want). You could try using an online PokeHelp site like Marriland or Bulbapedia, but I would just keep doing what your doing..But im not entirely sure if you can get it another way.

    Ahh quick question: What are Flying types weaknesses? Im on my second playthrough, and first time round I used Samurott, and I believe I didnt have too much trouble..But not sure what its weaknesses are ^_^. Thanks

    Flying is weak to Electric-, Ice- and Rock-type moves. It is immune to Ground, and resists Fighting, Grass and Bug . . . I think that's it?

      Should I pick Haxorus or Hydreigon for my ingame team? I just can't decide.

      It all really depends on what you want for your team. If you need a physical attacker, go for Haxorus. If you need Special support, go Hydreigon. On balance, I'd say Hydreigon is the better choice due to its base stats, but I'm willing to hypothesize here that because you're making an ingame team, it won't make that much of a difference. In the end, just go with whichever one you think looks more badass.

        Ok I got pokerus and was wanting to know if the pokemon with pokerus is curedf can it pass on pokerus to others or is it done. Everything about pokerus can help but i already know what its for and the basics about how its spread between other pokes but does it transfer after curing?

        No, once the PKRS box is not displayed and you are left with the Smiley face the effects still remain, but it cannot be spread to farther pokemon.

            You can't add your friends on your Pal Pad to Dream World. If you encounter them randomly through DW, it works, but it is all completely random who you meet/befriend.

            It will still list your friends on your Pal Pad on your account, as well as whoever you trade with on GTS Negotiations.

                You can only select/give a berry to one Pokemon in Dream World once per day via Dream Tree.

                    Go to http://Pokemon.com/, and on the upper right-hand corner is a tab called Global Link. Basically, it is a new feature in Pokemon where you can send special Pokemon and items to your game.

                    For example, you can't get berries easily in Black/White version. But you can plant them on Dream World and send them to your game. There's also Pokemon you can get with Dream World only abilities. All of this is strictly Wi-fi though.

                      Pokerus effects are still left till the end, but you can't spread them after it's "cured".
                      Put a Pokerus-infected pokemon in a box and the Pokerus will never lift unless it stays in your party a night.

                        Alright, so I haz a level 40 Scolipede, and I thought it was pretty strong and quite fast..But going through the E4 the first time, I got to watch as Scoli hit very low, and was continiously beat down. So, I was wondering if I had wasted my time training it up, and if I should continue with my plan for training it up more in the endgame. Its moves:

                        Steamroller
                        Poison Tail
                        Venoshock
                        Strength

                        Its level 40 :/. So, should I keep and train it some more? Or stick it in the PC and pick a new Pokemon to train instead. Thanks! Also, its uses in battle..And Pokemon it can squash would be helpful XD.

                          It's underleveled, to say the least. I'd keep it on your team, though, since it could be useful against the Elite Four (especially Grimsley). Train it up to level 50, if you can. If not, 47 or 48 should work.

                            Yeah, you're on that home stretch with that Scolipede there. Since it's a Bug type, it'll do wonders against Grimsley, and later another trainer who also sports an extremely difficult Dark type. You'll also have an easy time with Caitlin, all except for her Sigilyph, which you can probably wipe out with a Dark, Ice, Ghost, or Electric move...

                            I suggest a Lucky Egg and either going to the Sports Stadium or fighting off Audinos on Route 10 and the area around Victory Road.

                            Just make sure he can keep Steamrollin' his way to victory. ;)

                              Is it worth it to use a traded pokemon to level up to 100 or is it not too much of a different to where I should just use my own breeded one?

                              The traded Pokemon will level up faster as traded Pokemon get more exp. So it is worth considering.

                                Of course, I'm just asking if the difference is very worth it or should I just go with my own breed since it would be nice to have my name on the pokemon.

                                Well raising your Pokemon would be more special to you. I think raise your own Pokemon. Even though it'll take longer.

                                  Really, it's your opinion. Would you like to have your own name on the Pokémon? If so, then do it yourself.

                                  Although I will point out that by breeding you can get good natures, IVs and moves far more easily than via trading, but with a fair bit of extra work.

                                  edit: ninja'd, but not deleting because of the egg moves and etc bit.

                                  Well, that's essentially up to you, of course. If the traded Pokemon's nickname is so horrid that you can't bear to look at it, then I recommend getting your own. I raised a Tyranitar named Slim Shady to level 100 once, though, so it's not like it's a big issue.

                                    Horrible question, I know, but I'm new to EV training. I just maxed out my Axew, so does that mean no matter who he faces, his EVs won't change and I can just battle any high level Pokemon to make him level up quicker? I'm thinking I'm fine but I just want to hear it from someone else
