Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

126 with Macho Brace, or 50 with Power Bracer?

but lets say i give it 10 Proteins (thats 100 EV, right?) so i must kill 152/76/30 Patrats (no item/macho brace/power bracer) to reach the 252Atk?

and is there a way to check the EV's?
You can't check the EVs in the game itself; you'll have to keep track of them yourself. However, there's a girl in Opelucid who'll tell you if your Pokemon is fully EV trained.

And, your above calculations are correct. I'd also say that the Power Bracer is more effective than the Macho Brace if you're EV training in Attack.

    i dont have items from the Subway yet
    dont even have a decent team for Single Battles

    and can i reset the EV's with the DW berries? 10 EV's like vitamins?
    for example reducing my Scrafty's SpA/Def/etc... to 0 and EV train Atk and Spe with vitamins/wings/battles?

      If i wanted my skarmory to know both roost and whirlwind would I be right in thinking the best way to get it to learn both is to breed it on B/W so it learns whirlwind then trade it back to gen 4 game to teach it roost with a TM and then trade back?

      thanks in advance

      Nope, you can't trade it back to generation four. :( Only forward.

      In generation four you can get Whirlwind as an egg move, and then teach it Roost in the same game, then trade forward to Black and White and you'll be all good :3 Or leave it on generation four if you want.

        I just found out you can ask for AR codes here, so...

        I have searched high and low through the intarwebs for an IV/EV check AR code for german Black/White editions. All I can find are english codes that don't seem to work.

        My questions: Is there an easy way to modify AR codes to work for games in a different language? And if not, is there a good place for AR codes for german games?

        Thanks,
        Peter

          There are alternative methods for checking IVs and EVs, the easiest being Pokécheck. I'm fairly certain it works with games of any language.

            Pokémon Black and White have a few differences.
            A list of Pokémon different in each.
            A list of different areas.
            A list of different battles.
            There are also a few other minor things, such as a current wifi event, where you will receive Zekrom in Black and instead Reshiram in White. Which is better is up to opinion, generally choose based on which of the Pokémon you like better. Also Black has a more futuristic and developed theme, while White has a more past and natural theme. You'll need to trade to get the Raikou and Zoura. The shiny Raikou event ended long ago.

                No, they don't.

                Each Pokemon can only have one ability at a time whether they have Hidden Abilities or not.

                  My Adamant Mudkip has Pokerus, has been fed Proteins, and is holding a Macho Brace - I want to EV train it in Attack: how many Patrats/Lillipups do I have to fight?

                  Has the Mudkip defeated any other Pokémon or been in battle before? How many proteins has it been fed? How much EVs do you want it to end up with?

                    I just hatched it~
                    Gah, I'm not very good with EV training - I just want it to get the highest attack it can; I also want to EV it in HP, if that's wise? ;A;
                    I fed it around six proteins, I think.

                      I've checked through plenty of trash cans throughout the game and end up finding nothing. Where are there items in trash cans?

                      I know there's an Ultra Ball in one on Liberty Island, but generally all the trash cans are empty.

                        I think you might be using a DSi/DSi XL/3DS, which is unfortunately region locked.

                        If you are using a DS or DS Lite, there will be no issues.

                        So yeah, it might be region locking that's preventing you from using the Poke Transfer.

                          The region locking doesn't happen with DS Lites. You should try again and see what you get, ask Forever if you think you are still having trouble.

                            I fed it around six proteins, I think.
                            You could just give it a EXP SHARE and go fight a lot of pokemon that give you 2 attack EVs, and ones that give you HP EVs. Thats what I do, but sometimes its hard to tell when you've maxed out one of their stats.

                              After defeating Lenora at the Nacrene Gym, Team Plasma will attack the museum in Nacrene City and steal a bone from the Dragon fossil, which looks like the skull of Dragonite. My question is, why the hack they intended to do it? Anything related with the awakening/summoning of Zeckrom/Reshiram by N? But if so, that will be stupid/unnecessary because all they needed it's the Dark/Light Stone, to awaken Reshi/Zeck...
                              It's because they knew that one of the artifacts in the museum would be the key (Light and Dark Stone are in the museum), and they thought that artifact was the skull?
                              Any thoughts or theories on this?

                              The skull isn't explicitly stated to be Dragonite's skull in the game. Apparently, Team Plasma stole the skull because they thought it had to do with Reshiram or Zekrom, when in fact, it didn't, because they took the wrong item.

                              Can I just say if you're interested in the origin of the skull, feel free to make a new discussion thread on it, since it's an interesting topic. :)
