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.

Gyro Ball ;D Take advantage of that low speed. And its defenses are high enough that it can take a few hits, the only real threat to it is Fire because of the 4x weakness. And with the Iron Barbs ability and Rocky Helmet, it can take a ton of hits while chipping away at the opponent's HP.

    It means that the stat Defense was raised 3 stages, which is a 2.5x bonus.

        24 is the maximum number of boxes available in Black and White.

          For my Scrafty, should I be running Hi Jump Kick/Brick Break/Crunch/Dragon Dance, or should I have Focus Punch somewhere in there?

            I have another question. I tought my Pokemon alot of TM/HM moves before the E4 rematch so that I can increase my chances of winning.

            It's that for example: on my first run of the E4, I used Cloudy (my Whismcott) against Jellicent since it was grass. I also gave it Shadow Ball because ghost moves were effective against ghost. But it's not as effective as his Energy ball. So for the second round, when that Pokemon came out, I brought out Amy Rose (my Gothitelle) because she has both Shadow ball and Thunderbolt. But she doesn't do as much damage as Cloudy. And she's 3 levels higher than him. And darnit, ELECTRIC BEATS WATER!!!! AHH! But she gets Ko'd by the same move she has, Shadow Ball.

            Why?

            Same with Brick Break when I battled my Rival and his Lepard. When Silver (my Emboroar) does it, it does the trick, but when Amy does it, it does minimum damage and she gets killed by that night attack.

            Actually, those two situations aren't the same :P While Amy in theory should have a higher Special Attack than Cloudy, it doesn't always happen that way. Based on the IVs, the secret stats that determine general growth, and EVs, the secret stats that you can influence by who you battle, Cloudy may just end up with a higher Special Attack stat, and therefore the move will do more damage.

            Emboar and Amy doing Brick Break is different. Emboar's base Attack is 123, while Amy's is 55. In addition, Emboar has STAB (same-type attack bonus, the bonus damage for using a move that he's typed as), while Amy does not, so it should do much more damage.

              Oh. However, electric moves should be able to kill water pokemon easily. I looked up in Attack for my Gothitelle and it says that it's 144.

                Thunderbolt uses special attack, I'm not really sure why you would want very high attack on a Gothitelle anyway... Their special attack base stat is nearly twice as high.

                  So I can use her more often instead on just fighter types.

                      Hydreigon, unless you mean pure dragon type, then Haxorus.

                        Another reason your Cloudy's Energy Ball is so effective is STAB - Same Type Attack Bonus. If the move you're using matches the type of Pokemon using it, the move gets a 1.5x bonus. Energy Ball & Shadow Ball have the same base power, so having the STAB makes Energy Ball stronger. Now, Jellicent is x2 weak to both grass and ghost. So it breaks down kinda like this:

                        Shadow Ball: Base 80 x2 Weakness = 160 power
                        Energy Ball: Base 80 x2 Weakness x1.5 STAB = 240 power <- STRONGER

                          Have a question about Mienshao:

                          Was thinking of restarting and using this pokemon in my team, but I'm not sure if I should try to get one with adamant nature, neutral nature, or a modest nature...
                          Would it be worth balancing out it's attack and sp.attack to make use of Aura Sphere, or since it is rather limited in it's sp. attack learnset just go with adamant and forget Aura Sphere?

                            I've currently got an Eelektrik with Thunder Wave, Thunderbolt, Crunch, and Acrobatics. Should I keep Thunderbolt and get Acid Spray to lower the foe's special defense two levels, or should I keep Thunder Wave and give him a physical Electric attack?

                              Well what's it's nature? Also which of it's stats is higher Attack or Special attack? if it's Attack then go for a physical move like Wild charge, if it's Special then keep Thunderbolt or teach it thunder instead.

                              Would it be worth balancing out it's attack and sp.attack to make use of Aura Sphere, or since it is rather limited in it's sp. attack learnset just go with adamant and forget Aura Sphere?
                              The one I have is straight Adamant, it makes great use of the Hi Jump Kick. :x I love it.

                              Are all men stupid?

                              That's right.

                                Yeah I figured Adamant would be better... Aura Sphere is neat and all, but only Lucario has the right stats for it apparently...



                                Also, I have ANOTHER question type thing...
                                I'm planning on restarting my game, and am making an unorthodox team for this run, so far this is how I've planned it:
                                Mienshao - Physical
                                Venipede - Physical
                                Swanna - Mix
                                Chandelure - Special
                                Hydreigon - Special
                                Gothitelle - Special

                                Does this seem like a plausible/rational setup? (My lack of a grass type is because of my hatred for grass types... Also, I like colors.)

                                  It's Special attack isn't all that bad so a mix could work but if I was you I would go with Adament as Attack is it's highest stat plus it's strongest moves are physical like Hi kick which it can take advantage of.

                                  This is a plausible team specially seeing that one of them is a Pseudo which would give you a strong back up
                                  Also Chandelure is a decent pokemon due to it's high Special attack

                                    focus punch is only good if your opponent is slower, cause if it gets a hit in first the move is wasted

                                      The H/B/C/D move pool is better if you don't want to waste time setting up a Substitute/Focus Punch combo and giving up 1/4 of your Hp at the same time...

                                      Focus Punch will always go last so speed isn't a factor. You'd have to have a substitute to take a hit or correctly predict they're not gonna attack you.

                                        What's a good move set for an Adamant Golurk with Iron Fist as it's ability?
