    The source page at Bulbapedia doesn't specify, but I would presume that because changes to stats are usually passed on (i.e. with Baton Pass), that the changes from Psych Up are as well.

    If anyone knows otherwise, however, do not hesitate to correct me.

        You won't be able to connect with that game anymore, because when you restart, you will also get a new Game Sync ID. I think you can email the PGL staff to get your old ID removed from your account so you can register your new save file but I'm not sure about that.

          You mean when both players have 1 Pokemon left and one uses Perish Song?
          Then it's a draw.

            A few questions about the Masuda Method:
            ~Let's say a Japanese person trades a Squirtle to an American person. The American person can breed that JP Squirtle with his USA Squirtle to do the method, if I'm correct. So, what happens if that American trades the JP Squirtle to another American? Will the Masuda Method still work? Will it still work after 50 trades within America, as long as the pokemon originated in Japan?

            ~A Japanese person hacks a Mudkip into his game, and then trades it to an American. If the American breeds the hacked JP Mudkip with his/her USA Mudkip, will the Masuda Method still work?

            ~An American generates a japanese Munna in PokeGen. When that Munna is imported into their game and bred with a USA Munna, will the Masuda Method take effect?

            ~Does breeding a foreign pokemon with a Ditto or breeding a foreign Ditto with a pokemon still let the Masuda Method take effect?

            ~Finally, and just to be clear, the odds of Masuda'ing without a Shiny Charm, getting a shiny pokemon is 1/1366 instead of 1/8192, right?

            The Masuda Method still works as long as the Pokémon was first generated in a foreign-language game. In your example, even if your Japanese Squirtle was traded over and over, the method still works because it was generated in a Japanese cartridge.

            Ditto still works with the Masuda method, since it never said anything about Ditto messing with the method.

            The odds of you getting a shiny Pokémon using the Masuda Method while you have the Shiny Charm is 1/1024.

              So long as the Pokemon is generated on a foreign device and game, it'll work. Doesn't matter how you try to dissect it. If it counts as a foreign country you'll be able to use the Matsuda method for breeding.

              With the Charm the chances drop to: 1/1024

                ^Thanks for the help! But now i have another question.
                I was trading and I came across a giveaway for a Mew. Of course, I took it. But, I have just confirmed the Mew is a fake...will it mess up my game in any way or is it pretty much harmless?

                From what I can tell, hacked Pokemon cannot harm your game. Could you do me a big favor and post the details of it into Trade Corner's Hack Report Thread? If it was a giveaway there could be more hacks floating around I want to add it to the black list. If you can't provide a legality analysis, I'm more than happy to take it off your hands so I can check it for you ;)

                (Er, does that count as off topic or advertising?)

                  Hey guys!
                  I just started white 2 (so far I'm absolutely loving it) and I have a team planned and although I refuse to use ubers and pseudo-legendaries, I'm afraid my team is too weak. Here it is;

                  Samurott- Not changing him.
                  Magnezone - Give suggestions for a replacement.
                  Krookodile - Not changing him.
                  Chandelure - Not changing him.
                  Pinsir - Give suggestions for a replacement.
                  Unfezant - Give suggestions for a replacement.

                  This is just purely for in-game purposes and not for competitive battling. Also, I really don't have time to search for super rare Pokemon (such as in Hidden Grottoes). In addition, I would really appreciate it if you can tell me which ability is best and the move sets for my current team and/or your suggestions. I don't really care about natures. When choosing move sets, please be mindful that I will not be grinding levels and the maximum levels my Pokemon will be when facing the champion are probably around fifties.

                  Thanks for taking the time to read this and for the time to reply. Yeah, it is a lot of requirements to ask for, but you know, I don't wanna go all the way to the champion only to find out my team sucks.

                  Thanks again!

                    The way the games are made you can beat it with the worst team you could build (theoretically). Your team is only as bad as you make them and treat them. That being said if you want an in depth review if your team, try the in game team help section in the Battle Center forum. More people wouldbe able to assist you there.

                        Normally I agree with you, but I asked their customer service people and they replied this to me

                        Hello Adrian,

                        thank you for contacting the Pokémon Support.

                        When using attacks like "Perish Song" the user of the attack loses the battle as we want to reward players who win matches without those kind of attacks. This is the same for "Destiny Bond", "Selfdestruct" and "Explosion".

                        If you have any further questions or issues, please let us know.

                        Thank you,
                        The Pokémon Support Team

                        This was taken from the official PDF for Pokemon tournament rules for B/W2:
                        Quote:
                        • If the player’s final Pokémon used Selfdestruct, Explosion, Destiny Bond, or Final Gambit, and both players’ final Pokémon are knocked out as a result, that player loses that game
                        • If a player’s final Pokémon used Double‐Edge, Volt Tackle, Flare Blitz, Take Down, Submission, Brave Bird, Wood Hammer, Head Smash, Struggle, or Wild Charge, or was holding Life Orb, and both players’ final Pokémon are knocked out as a result, that player wins that game
                        • If both players’ final Pokémon is knocked out by a weather condition, such as Hail or Sandstorm, the player whose Pokémon is knocked out last wins the game
                        • If a Pokémon’s Ability or held item, such as Rough Skin, Aftermath, Liquid Ooze, Iron Barbs, or Rocky Helmet, results in each player’s final Pokémon being knocked out, the player with the Ability or held item will win the game
                        So while it doesn't explicitly say using Destiny Bond causes you to lose, it looks like any move that purposely makes your own Pokemon faint at the same time the battle is ended, results in a loss.

                          Ok, so I know Foul Play bases its power on the opponent's Attack stat, not the user's. I also know its power is affected by type (just got "super effective" against a Solrock), and imagine it can be affected by STAB. I guess my question is, does the user's Attack stat affect things at all (ex: does it matter whether my Attack stat is currently 10 or 100)? Also, how does the base power factor in? If the opponent has a weak Attack stat, does it sort of subtract from the 95 base power?

                          Fairly new to trying to play Pokemon competitively so I have a few questions regarding stats and nature.

                          I have a Riolu, Growlithe, and Elekid.

                          Which stat should I focus on being highest for each? And which nature benefits them most?

                          (I noticed in the stat section one seems to be highlighted red and another blue, what does that mean?)

                          Natures increase a stat by 10% while decreasing another one by 10%. There are also neutral natures, meaning they don't increase or decrease any stat. This is shown on the stats page, the increased stat is highlighted in red, while the decreased stat is in blue. So you should chose a nature that would benefit your Pokemon, for example Arcanine and Electivire have higher Attack, so maybe one of Lonely, Brave, Adamant, or Naughty. Keep in mind though that these will also lower another stat, so for example Brave wouldn't be the best choice for Arcanine since it would lower it Speed.

                          You can read more on natures here > http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Nature

                          No, your attack stat does not matter. STAB, ability, and item are factored in, as well as being burned. All it does is use your targets attack stat, boosts included, as if it were your own.

                          the funny thing is that it doesn't count you opponent's burn, but yours so keep that in mind

                            I finally have the Pokemon I want (Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander) and I would like to keep them on their second evolution. Would this hurt anything stat wise? Would this hurt my chances at completing the game?

                            I know there are some people who don't like evolving their Pokemon, but in my personal opinion, evolving your Pokemon makes them stronger in the long run. Evolving them can make them strong enough for those later fights, and the stats actually get better with evolution.

                            Evolving your Pokemon to their final stage is actually well-worth it. I don't think it would hurt your chances of finishing the game by a long mile. I definitely advise evolving them is the better route.

                              I just really wanted to keep my Squirtle a Wartortle really. I never liked the look of Blastoise... If I do stop the evolution and get my Wartortle to level 100, is there a way to progress it to it's final stage?

                              Level 100 is the level cap, it won't gain a level after that.
