I plan to recatch all 493 pokemon in heartgold mainly if I did it once I can do it again, on another note I see why Wobbuffet is uber tier as I took out pokemon 20-30 levels higher than my level, speaking of Wobbuffet I found my 6th team member.

Is Wobbuffet worth training in Emerald? If so, what Nature should I breed for? (Yes, I know Natures/EVs are pointless in-game, I'm practicing so that whenever I finally get a game for a current system I'll know what to expect when building a team.)

You'll want a Careful, Impish, Calm or Bold Wobbuffet. I prefer sweepers for in-game so I can't comment on how useful he is in Emerald, but in Gens III and IV, Wobbuffet was crazy powerful so he could probably be of use.

The only shiny I've ever expressed any interest in is Ash's Noctowl, to be quite frank. But maybe that'll change now that I'm playing the games too.

It'll be really annoying when my boxes get full and I'll have to release like 500 Staryus one by one to make room for more...This is the first time I've actually specifically hunted for a shiny. The only ones I have now are from random encounters.

Nope just make sure it's the right code or might be unable to save, trust me on this.

There are no normal encounter Arceus, so while it wouldn't glitch the game, it would be easy to tell it wasn't legit.

Well, there was the glitch associated with the event Regigigas that gave some people the Azure Flute as well, which led to arguably legit encounter Arceus.Also, if a hacked Mon is transferred to Gen V, its location caught is lost, so it would then mask that it's not legit. Course, random matchup and some other features seem quite good at detecting hacks that aren't obvious.~B~

Huh. How does it work, though? It sounds like something that could be very useful, and counteract the lack of an official release since Nintendo was silly in that way.

For a small number of people, when the delivery man in the mart gave the Regigigas, he then gave an Azure Flute as well. There's at least one video of it happening online, as I remember.~B~

It is interesting, I've never heard about it before.Anyway, I just passed 600 eggs hatched on my shiny Staryu hunt. Constant egg hatching is driving me kinda crazy but I want to keep going so all I've done so far wasn't a waste of time. And I did end up having to release a bunch of staryus to free up some box space, I've never spent that long in the PC at once before.:P

isn't there the option to select multiple pokemon at once at a PC in bw2? I heard about it, but I don't know if it's true. I know there are buttons on top of the boxes, but I can't seem to push them.

There is; tap one of them, and you can then 'click' and drag the cursor around multiple things.It's hard to describe without having the game open beside me. ^^' But the buttons are indeed how you select it. It's the more obvious choice, though, and isn't the first one. The first one's the default. =)

Does anyone know of a way to find a Pokemon's exact IVs without leveling it up? I'm trying to use the Red Gyarados to find my Secret ID.

Not really, no, without external stuff, or people willing to help you. Gen 5 removed the level cap battles, and I think HGSS removed the Level 100 battles too. That could've only been local wireless, though.

Hmm.. When do you get to the Battle Tower (Or whatever the place is called where you can clone Pokemon) in Emerald? I could use that to clone some Rare Candies, but I haven't played through all my Emerald game yet.

If you have access to Wifi and you're willing to try, there's a website that tells you not only the exact IVs of any Pokemon, but also your Secret ID. I don't think I can mention to site name, but it does have to do with the GTS.

Can the Red Gyarados really lead to the secret ID? I thought since it always appears, that wouldn't work. Interesting.~B~

Yes. Yes it can. There's a function on RNG Reporter for turning multiple Poke Radar Shinies into Secret ID, that also works for the Red Gyarados. But I used Pokecheck because I didn't want to level it up to level 50+ multiple times .___.My current team in Soulsilver:Typhlosion: Eruqush Lvl. 42 Male Moves: Flamethrower, Lava Plume, Quick Attack, Defense Curl Pupitar: Terranitar Lvl. 40 MaleMoves: Bite, Headbutt, Payback, ScreechSkarmory: Blunt Edge Lvl. 35 FemaleMoves: Fly, Metal Sound, Steel Wing, SpikesSudowoodo: To help catch pokemonRed Gyarados and Nidoran HM SlavesPlanning on replacing the last three with Dragonite, Heracross, and Ursaring. I want to catch them in Apricorn balls... Is there any way to get the old man to finish them faster? :P

Take it from me, and I speak from experience, using Dragonite in-game isn't a good idea. Training him to level 55 isn't practical, since you can clear out the Elite 4 relatively easily with Pokemon in the mid to high forties, and he won't be able to pull his weight until he's evolved.

Pupitar evolves at level 55, too, and he has quite similar base-stats as to Dragonair, he's pulling off well. I'm guessing you mean because of the moveset. Also, Senrab has a point there. :PMaybe I'll just train the ExtremeSpeed Dratini, so it has an OK move while I'm training it. I need something for Surf/Waterfall anyway. And I also want to train it so I have a dragon-type against Lance, and for owning my friend (Who is getting the game soon) with, without having to train other than through the game.

Dunno if this is common knowledge or not, but Gold, Silver, and Crystal matches haven't been possible for some time. I don't think I'm the only one who knows the cartridges supposedly dried up or whatever, and no longer work, so that's not an option, but it also wasn't an option to battle on emulators, due to networking issues and stuff. However, a few months ago, some old Japanese software was dug up by a member of the competitive community [I'd explain which community, maybe even post a video on a video sharing site] which has solved that last problem. It is insanely cool.
