    Hi, I've looked around everywhere for a simple answer but I can't find it.

    If I wanted to max out the National Dex in Black/White, and I had 2 DSs, and couldn't trade with anyone else but myself, what are the minimum games I would need? Multiple playthroughs are fine if needed. Thanks!

      If you have access to Wi-Fi, than you only need one game (due to online trading). I'd still recommend getting a copy of HG or SS as well as Platinum to make the process go faster.

      If you don't, then you pretty much need ALL of the DS games as well as Emerald.

        But yes, you need a router which can give you wireless wifi, and depending on what DS you have (Lite, Original) you can only access any of Nintendo's wifi with WEP encryption, however if you have a DSi or 3DS, then you can access via WPA encryption, so it just depends on what type of DS you have and whether you use a router or not. As for loading issues, you'll probably need to try Google Chrome, as it tends to have less issues with loading than browsers such as Firefox.
        One more "quick question", haha. I don't have anything like that, and after phoning a couple local stores, came up with nothing of the like. Would I be able to use my friend's router at his house, or can routers only work with one individual DS?

        You can connect to any router as long as the security allows it. There are no restrictions except for the amount of connections on your DS, and even then you can remove a connection and set it up again once you need it.

          Right. NDS and NDS games are compatible with WEP and DSi / 3DS are compatible with WPA...
          In other words, you need to use WEP to play NDS games online even if on a DSi / 3DS.

          Right, but Black and White are DSi Enhanced games, so if you are using them on a DSi, DSi XL, or 3DS, you can use WPA and WPA2 security settings with them, as well as a few other features.

          This might be a dumb or obvious question, but I'm not sure and that's what this thread is for. I know about breeding Hidden Abilities, and a little about breeding mechanics overall, but I don't understand one thing. Take the Pokémon Chandelure. I read everywhere that the best ability it can have is Shadow Tag. Shadow Tag is a hidden ability, so how are you supposed to get a Chandelure with ST? You can't catch it in DW so you'll have to breed ST on it, but that's impossible since for a Hidden Ability to pass on, the mother needs to have it, but the offspring will also be of the mother's species, so I am a bit confused as to how you can have a Chandelure with ST. I hope someone can clarify this a bit for me.

            no 5th gen pokemon have been released in DW so they cannot have their hidden ability.
            so, a chandelure with the shadow tag ability cannot exist yet.

              This excludes Musharna and Darmanitan, of course. You can catch them with their hidden abilities in-game.

              Thanks! Will we be able to get one in the future though, cause I did read that someone asked why ST Chandelure wasn't on ubers list, like Wobbuffet, since it was centralizing the metagame, so I'm confused.

              Hey can a female with an egg move pass down the move if bred with a Ditto?

              e.g. female Pikachu with Volt tackle + Ditto = Pichu with Volt tackle

                I know that in general, only males can pass down egg moves when bred with ditto. I think Volt Tackle may be a special case, however. I don't think it gets "passed down" essentially. It involves a Light Ball, that much I remember.

                  This section is only for Black and White, try asking in the rom hacking thread for that, as seen here. :3 (If that's allowed, if not, read ROM Hackings rules and PM the thread creator :x)

                    In Generation V though, you'll need 26 of the berries to completely remove a stat from maximum.

                    From Bulbapedia
                    In Generation V, most of the EV system remains unchanged from Generation III and IV. EV-reducing berries no longer reduce Effort Points to 100 if the points were above 100; instead, only 10 EVs are deducted. Pokémon can now gain effort values from battling even at Level 100, and stats are recalculated at the end of every battle instead of only after leveling up, much like Deoxys in the Generation III games.
                    I think by that it means that each berry reduces the EVs by 10 like before but the first berry lowering to 100 no longer applies.

                      Actually, the berries are available in the DW. You just need to get to the Windswept Sky area.

                        You can do both. 12 berries will remove 120 EVs and 2 will remove 20. It's up to you.

                          I think you are mistaking the EV Berry mechanics with Generation IV and before. Back then, using just one berry would drop your EV down to 100, and then 10 if your EVs were already 100 or below. It never capped at 100, though. In Generation V, the berries were made to only ever drop 10 EVs, even if you have above 100 in the stat--this was implemented to avoid the Pomeg glitch.

                            I just got Pokemon Black!

                            1) What should my starter be? I'm looking for one that has a fine touch for getting poke's in the red for catching (^name). Do any starters cast PAR, SLE, or FRZ?

                            2) How soon can I trade previous gen poke's onto Black (or Poketransfer/PalPark them, you know what I mean)?

                            Thanks! :D

                            Well. It depends on what you like better. Actually, none of the starters this generation can inflict a direct status, except Tepig's line with Will-O-Wisp. Remember though, you'll be getting other Pokemon along your way. I'd go with Oshawott. Snivy is at a huge disadvantage and has an awful movepool. Tepig is quite slow and poor in the defensive department. Oshawott is the average starter.

                            Once you defeat the Pokemon League.

                            1. I don't think any learn many status moves from level (maybe it's the types?), but Oshawott does learn False Swipe. Cottonnee and Petilil from Pinwheel Forest may be best, they learn those and are early in the game so they're not pests.

                            2. You can't do that until you beat the game :( If you didn't play with new Pokemon it wouldn't be the same! You can trade old ones from another Black or White though, and the Dream World if you just can't let go. But if I were you I would try the new ones; they're really great and that way imo the game is just more fun. :3

                              Well, I'm pretty sure all three can learn Swagger, Attract, and Toxic, like every other Pokemon in-game. Snivy's line learns Glare (PRZ), but only by breeding with Ekans or Dunsparse. Emboar learns the crappy Smog, which is basically 40% PSN, Will-O-Wisp, Body Slam with a semi-reliable 30% chance of PRZ, and Scald for 30% BRN. Samurott learns Scald too, as well as two FRZ-inflicting moves (since there are none that inflict it directly).
