Yes, is it random. No, it's never the Plume or Cover Fossil, as others have stated. I've done the soft-reset trick for Fossils and for the Treasure dude on Route 13; even the move lady in Driftveil (back in B/W) got resets if I didn't particularly want to teach a Pokémon the move she demanded.

Ahh thanks for help with that folks! I'd forgotten that I'd got the plume fossil elsewhere.

I do have Tirtouga in Black, but I foolishly taught it Surf, so I'll have to do some fiddling around before I can transfer it.

Probably quicker than the Antique shop though. On a totally unrelated note, does anyone want a hard stone? lol

Why is that foolish? It's a Water and Rock type and gets STAB from it. Unless the special attack stat is lower, it seems like a good idea if not for the fact you can't unlearn it without a trip to Mistralton (or PWT in B2/W2).

Tirtouga's Special Attack is much lower than Attack so it's much better off with physical moves.

I was Ev training my Zoroark. I would write down my ev progress on paper and use the serebii ev value for each pokemon. I would check and she would say that it could work harder. Am I nuts or am I not doing something right? Or are other people having similar issues.

I asked in the battling section and dude locked my thread on it and referee me to B2/W2 QQ section.

I thought it might be something like that. Lately I have an interest more in IVs, and actually plopped an AR code onto my White 2 today that lets me see them (and subsequently selected one of my Emolga,).

I today found out I have the world's weakest Braviary from my Monday catch, not a single IV over 8 on this Route 4 weekly find with 2s and 4s. I'm a little peeved about that. Going to catch another that is shop-worthy, hopefully...or are the Route 4 ones always going to have weak IVs?

What was Zoroark holding/what were you battling? It also could have just been a simple miscalculation.

No, you're just really unlucky with the IVs. My Braviary from there had relatively high IVs.

Thought so. One of the Emolga rejects has a perfect Sp. Attack of 31, but a Sp. Defense and Speed of 2 meaning the high Sp. Attack is useless if it's beaten to the punch. Eventually settled on one above average in all areas including 30s in Defense and Sp. Attack; lowest IV was a 13.

Rather than lift a quote from it, I'll link an entire Pokéstar FAQ.

That's helpful, however, I should of mentioned this: I meant with your own Pokemon not the rental ones.

I've been using a Growlithe btw.

So, this may be a stupid question and have a really easy answer.

If i have a Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, Heartgold/SoulSilver, White/Black save, how can i transfer Pokemon from those games onto my Black2/White2 ? Is it possible ?

Thanks !

To get a strange ending for that particular movie, I selected "Your mistake!" and then proceeded to KO the machine on the 2nd turn(with a resisted move, not sure if it mattered). So for Growlithe try KOing it with Crunch, Outrage, or Aerial Ace.

Let me know how that works out for you!

Not a stupid question! To transfer from any 4th gen game (D/P/Pt, HS/SS) you need to use the PokeTransfer feature located in a building on Route 15. To transfer from B/W1 you need to trade between yourself using the IR feature. Both take 2 DS systems.

If you don't have a second DS, you'd have to trade with someone or use a third-party GTS website like PokeCheck.

Did you calculate for 508 total EVs? I'm pretty sure she only says "the pokemon put in a good effort" if it has 510 EVs.

I seem too be counting wayy too low or something. or the EVs on Serebii are outdated.

When does she mention a particular stat that is good.

Yes, he's correct. You need two DS's to use Poke Transfer.

Yes you either need 2 ds's or some one who has another ds and a 4th gen. and 5th gen. game that can help you out.

Adrian - If you mean mentioning whether or not IVs are good, the IV checker is located in the battle subway. He's the Ace Trainer right there closest to you upon entry.

Why does the billboard at gates not show any Pokémon swarms/outbreaks sometimes? I thought it was supposed to be a daily event.

Swarms only happen in the post-game, so after beating the Elite Four and Champion.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I finished the game already. X) The problem is that once in a while, one of the days the billboard doesn't show up any swarm.

Have you done something with the clock? Like re-setting or something?
Clock-based events won't happen for a bit if you do that.
