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.

Whoops; forgot to take that in account. *facepalm*

Anyway, my own question: is weather (rain, hail, sandstorm) a factor when I'm RNGing for a Pokemon?

No, I don't think so. Weather is just for aesthetic purposes I think.

Yes, weather is a factor, it'll mess up the results. You can get rid of it by saving your game on the route you want, changing the month on your DS the the required month, and then battling a wild Pokémon. Then you can just save with clear weather there and do your RNG as normal.

    Thing is, there are routes where it rains (or, this month, SNOWS) all the time. It's hit and miss getting good weather. I think I had two rainy days in a row on Route 7 while hanging out there training.

      No. They can only be battled once per game.

        If it takes you a long time to find Black City then less trainers appear than the maximum 10. So if you completed the game in a few hours you'd have all 10, but ofc that's impossible, which is annoying of GF. You'll need to connect with other trainers with local wifi in order to get more :(

        Aaand if you don't visit it everyday, you'll start losing all 7 and the buildings associated with them. :x

            Not quite sure what you are asking....but Pokemon have always been able to pass abilities as the Abilities are default for Pokemon. If they don't get their Hidden ability then they get the ability they are normally born with.

              Ok, I'll say it like this:
              I want a Adamant Bouffalant with Sap Sipper. During my breeding, i got a few adamant ones, unfortunatly, they all had Reckless for ability. I was just wondering if there is a way to increase the chance of getting a specific abillity.

                Dream World abilities have a 60% chance of appearing if the Dream World Pokemon was Female. Only the Mothers can pass on the Dream World ability and they cannot be bred with Ditto.

                So basically only way to breed Dream World abilities is to acquire a Female Pokemon of the species you are trying to breed with its Dream World ability, the Father MUST be male and from the same breed group.

                Genderless and Ditto cannot pass on Dream World abilities. Males also cannot pass on Dream World abilities.

                  But im not talking about DW abilities! im talking about normal abilities. Pokemon that have 2 Abilities have a chance to have one of them, no? so is there a way to increase the chance of having one of the 2 abilities by passing it on via breeding?

                  No, there is no way of increasing your chance of getting specific non-Dream World ability.

                    Hello users! My birthday was eight days ago [07/28] and my mother was nice enough to buy me BW. I've never played 5th generation, so I was wondering if you, the community, could give me any tips, tricks and cheatcodes free pokemon lapdance advice! What pokemon should I have at the beginning? What's the best starter in your opinion?

                    Thanks in advance!

                    Happy birthday for eight days ago! Unfortunately this kinda question fitted in the Quick Questions sticky sooo I merged it here in case anyone had anything in particular to add. In my experience, Snivy is a lot harder to use at the start, whereas Oshawott and Tepig are a lot easier - Tepig especially for its typing (and Scrafty in particular is useful at the elite four, beating 3/4 of the people there, while for early on, Tepig's evolution line is effective against most things!) I'll leave other suggestions up to everyone else, buuut hopefully you have fun playing through B/W and feel free to ask as many questions as you want in this thread!

                    I'll give you my thoughts on each starter.

                    As Nica said, Snivy is the hardest to use due to low offensive power and a terrible movepool. It's built as a support-based Pokemon so don't expect it hitting as hard as the other two. Snivy's main selling points are Defense, Special Defense and Speed while having low HP, Attack and Special Attack. I only recommend Snivy for advanced players or for those who like it.

                    Tepig is OK, but it's stuck with weak moves for a while. Once it gets Hammer Arm (from the Reminder Girl) as an Emboar it starts getting good. It also has a good movepool. It gets a Fighting-type upon evolution and it hits pretty hard with its main stats being Attack, Special Attack and HP while its Defense, Special Defense and Speed are less than stellar. Tepig is the middle-of-the-road choice based on what I studied.

                    Oshawott was what I chose when I played Black and I had a good run with it. Its movepool is not too shallow and its stats are balanced (as is common with Water-type starters). It can also use both physical and special moves effectively. It's a good choice for beginners so if you're feeling doubt, pick Oshawott so that you have an easy run through the game.

                    Overall, I'd give these ratings for the starters:

                    3/10
                    7/10
                    9/10

                      I just recently started using my Vanillite who is at level 22. I can't decide what moves to give him as he levels up. Does anyone have any suggestions?

                        Only Ice moves and Flash Cannon as that is all he learns. :D

                          I meant more like which particular moves should I teach him? He is level 22 and knows:

                          Uproar
                          Icy Wind
                          Avalanche
                          Taunt (a mistake I made from reading the description wrong, thinking it prevented attacks for 3 turns)

                          Is that considered an effective move list at that level?

                            The best guide is this page about Vanilluxe, the final evolution of Vanillite. The level up movelists are similar; ignore the Start section (moves learned at birth) with exception to Weather Ball, which I believe is provided when you first evolve Vanilluxe if I remember correctly.

                            All TMs and breeding moves are also listed.

                            Per the comment that it only learns Ice moves, this is generally true for attacking moves from Level 10 onwards with exception to Mirror Shot at Lv.26. There are some status changing moves as well in the list that are not Ice in type.

                              Now that I know this is here...If I put my Tranquill in battle with the Lucky Egg equipped and gave Tynamo the Exp. Share, would Tynamo receive extra experience based off the Lucky Egg boost?

                              I don't get what you're saying here, but I'll assume Tranquill has the Lucky Egg while Tynamo has the EXP. Share. When Tranquill defeats a Pokemon, both Tranquill and Tynamo will get half of the EXP, but the latter will get 1.5x more EXP than it would receive thanks to the Lucky Egg.

                                Rats, I was hoping the Egg would help Tynamo get some extra extra Xp! I don't suppose there is a second Lucky Egg anywhere??
