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.

    Is it bad to just rush the Elite Four to train lower level Pokemon with an EXP share? I heard if you rush leveling, the stats suffer.

    Right, but this is referring to Effort Values.

    Every time your Pokemon defeats an enemy Pokemon, it also gains effort values. Different enemies grant different effort values (usually, if the opponent has high speed or high attack, it will grant an effort value in speed or an effort value in attack, respectfully). There's a list somewhere on Bulbapedia on which Pokemon grant which effort values. Effort values increase the stat overall. You will begin to see results in mid-maturity (level 40s and above?).

    For example, if you defeat one Patrat, your Pokemon (those participated in the battle, even if switched out, and those holding the exp share) will gain 1 effort value in attack. Patrat specializes in attack and is a first stage Pokemon. If you defeat one Raichu, your Pokemon will gain 3 effort values in speed. Raichu specializes in speed and is a third stage Pokemon.

    If you train via Elite 4, and after defeating the first (fully evolved) Pokemon, the level 1 newborn Pokemon with Exp Share will jump to level 20 but will gain probably 2-3 effort values depending on the enemy.

    If you had defeated a bunch of level 2 Patrat instead, then at level 20, the newborn may have some dozens of effort values by then.

    If you don't mind the Pokemon having fewer EVs by the time they get to a higher level, go ahead and use the Elite 4. If you want them to reach their max stat potential, start EV training wisely and early.

      I need some help, I think I've encountered an annoying bug. I can't rename my own pokemon!

      I bred and trained a haunter which I then traded to and back from my Japanese game to evolve him and realised because he evolved on my Japanese copy, his name is Japanese. So I went to rename it and the name rater is all previous owner crap, but I am the owner!
      Even if I try to rename him in my Japanese game he still says about the previous owner and won't let me rename him. Da faq is dis.

        There are two things. I am raising a gible from lv1 with Lonely nature. I see multiple guides for Ev calculation but I guess Im not sure what it all means. I want my Gible to rock atk and speed with Sp def accent to it with it being somewhat vein. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. It is also equipped with macho brace. Does that really work? Brace

        Have you read over this guide? It's kinda simplistic imo and explained it easily enough to be. However, I'll just explain to you!

        Okay so for attack, go to route 1 - look for Patrat and Lillipup (being all you can find). Make sure you have a Power Bracer item (found at subway iirc) as well as PokeRus and then battle them 15 times, then remove the item and battle once more. That means attack is done! For speed go find either Woobat or Blitzle, both early on and use a Power Anklet and follow the same process. For Special Defense, battle Frillish four times iirc and you'll have maxed out your stats in attack/speed and special defense. :) Either way merging to Quick Questions in case you have any further questions!

          Patrat, Lillipup are they the only ones that have Atk EV or are there others? Because Ive gotten lists that give ev points from which pokemon. Also when will I know the Evs are sticking? Ive been battling wild pokemon since level one. Also Macho Does double EV correct? Also I used the vitamins and only could use 7 of them

            There are more, but Patrat and Lillipup are the most reliable sources of Attack EVs. You always get EVs after a battle. A girl in Opelucid will let you know if you maxed out your EVs or not. You'll have to keep track of the EVs you get on your own.

            Also, you're right; Macho Brace doubles the EVs you get, but the 6 Power items are more efficient. They award 4 of a certain EV, depending on the item, as well as any EVs you get from defeating a Pokemon. For example, Gible is holding the Power Anklet and it defeats a Patrat. In addition to the Attack EV Patrat provides, Gible will also get 4 Speed EVs because of the Power Anklet.

              Thing is I was keeping track. Maybe I wasnt doing it right or something but I mainly kept track of Atk and Spd I know that 255 is max per stat and 510 total. I hammered at atk until I hit 255 I over hit a lil bit in case I miscounted and did the same for spd. I dont know what I did wrong or if Brace is working correctly

              Just a thought but maybe you need to go to the place where you evolved it and try that way? Thats all I can think of. If that helps at all

                Are you sure the OT/ID number of your Gengar matches the OT/ID of the game you are trying to nickname them on? The game should allow you to rename it if they match. If they do not, well, there's not much you can do about that. Worst case scenario, you can prevent this from happening again by nicknaming your Pokémon before you trade to evolve.

                Hey PC

                Just wondering about EV training, I know what to do and everything, i've read through a few guides and was wondering if i can use my Action Replay to (for example) make a charizard appear as an encounter then use my charizard to raise its Special attack.

                Would the pokemon still be Legit even though it gained Ev's from a hacked encounter?
                I thought doing it would be faster than crawling around in grass for hours trying to find pokemon.

                If it is wrong and i cant trade the ev'd pokemon then i wont do it =)

                Thanks for your time.

                EDIT: oh and will the pokemon i hatch still be legit via Pokecheck.org if i use quick egg hatch?

                Chris

                    The Pokémon would still be considered legit, though personally, I wouldn't want a Pokémon EV trained in such a manner. Just use the Power Items. With them, you can EV train incredibly quickly.

                    From what I hear, the fast hatch code does not affect legality.

                        The brace is working correctly. You probably just miscounted. Just use the EV reducing berries and try again. Also, you want to stop at 252 EVs in each desired stat since any EVs after that number don't do anything to help. Just dump those remaining 6 EVs into another stat.

                        As I said before, check the ID number of the Pokémon. Assuming it actually is yours (you could have mixed it up with another Pokémon like I've done before :P ), trade that Pokémon onto the game with the matching ID number and you should be able rename it.

                          [QUOTE=PokéSwimmer;7204967]The brace is working correctly. You probably just miscounted. Just use the EV reducing berries and try again. Also, you want to stop at 252 EVs in each desired stat since any EVs after that number don't do anything to help. Just dump those remaining 6 EVs into another stat.


                          I dont have any of the berries I dk how to get them for one thing also. I notice some increase on my stats but I am disappointed in the increase does it get better with each level it goes up because at 50 it doesnt give the bonuses I hope for. Its giving 2s and 3s instead of the 4s and 5s I was aiming for. This is in the gibite level or doesnt those levels go up the higher i am in garchomp?

                          I want to fight better at level 50 for online battles and such.

                          Also I leveled thru to Garchomp the elite four after The chick in opelucid city said it put in great effort or was that a no no that is too late to fix

                            Is Geodude and Graveler a good pick for a main team player. I've been using him since Gen 1 and he seems to be always working for me.

                            But my friend says that he's a bad choice due to his late game stats, is this true? Is Geodude a bad Pokemon?

                              Personally Id say if it works and your happy stick with it. If he fits well and accommodates your teams, then stay with him

                                PLEASE HELP ME!

                                  To do the "Passerby" thing, won't we all have to have completed the surveys?

                                  I'd also like to know more about how you can see what your friends answered to the questions, and how you can keep connected with them (isn't there some area where I can add them to my friends list, like that book in the "Key Items" bag?).

                                    For ingame play, pretty much anything works. As long as you evolve your Graveler, it isn't too bad of a Pokémon. If you're playing against other people it isn't very good due to crippling 4x weaknesses against water and grass moves. If it would have had different typing, it would actually be a fairly good Pokémon.

                                    I've never encountered this glitch, but I have a few ideas as to what could be wrong.

                                    1. You're not playing a retail copy of the game. If this is the case, here is a solution: Buy the game.

                                    2. You've been doing a good amount of hacking: In this case, you should just trade off all you important stuff and restart. You've probably corrupted the part of your save data that has to do with which items you have registered (uh, that reason was a wild guess fyi).

                                    3. You bought a defective, pirated knockoff online: Can't help you there. Get your money back and/or buy a copy from a reliable source.

                                    4. There is actually something wrong with your retail copy of the game (extremely unlikely). I would just play around with it to see if you can find the cause of the freezing (such as deselecting everything from your shortcut list and see if it still freezes, turn the C-Gear on, etc.).

                                    Even if you can't evolve Graveler, an Evolite could help make it still useful. Just be sure to get one with Sturdy.

                                    Would a pure ground type (No Rock mix) be a better choice, he's mainly there for FLYING/ELECTRIC/BUG

                                    I NEED Earthquake, lol.
