Posted ImageFinally hatched myself one of these. http://www.bzpower.c...tyle_emoticons/default/cool.pngAlso, since I was breeding with a Power Anklet and an Everstone, it has a 31 Speed IV and a Timid Nature. The only bad part is that it's Special attack IV is at best... 2. :(

Figured you would never gotten it to be shiny good job, In other news I got Emerald Today only problem, the internal battery is dead so I'm having my dad fix it before I begin my new file.

^I assume you already know, but just in-case to potentially save you time: If you plan on SR for basically anything, don't. There isn't really a lot affected by time, think. Berries and shoal cave.In other news, I haven't touched my White 2 in a while, school is consuming me. Only need two more to get that shiny Haxorus and eventually the oval charm. Unfortunately, they're version exclusives.

I actually use berries a lot more than a normal person as I find them to be extremely useful, and I like to get the Shell bell from the cave, but can you explain why I shouldn't SR if the battery is dead?

Because the RNG stays the same between resets; meaning that you'd just be wasting a lot of time if you reset then. Because it'd always turn out more or less the same way.

Further than that, since it's Emerald, the RNG is broken anyway. It always starts at zero or one, regardless of a working battery or not.

I got White 2 a couple days before, it's really fun. Beat Cheren from Aspertia City's Gym. My current team is Oshawott, Sewaddle, and Riolu, and I plan to keep all of them if I can. Can someone suggest other Pokemon that can support my team through the various Gyms, the Elite Four, and the Champion? Thanks. If there are better choices than the Pokemon I have above, feel free to suggest those.

 

Also, I'm extremely lucky with finding Riolus in Floccessy Ranch, I found like 5 within 40 minutes. =P Meanwhile, others run around for hours without finding a single one.

[color=rgb(153,51,153);]I like my competitive Crobat quite a lot, but my Crobat in White 2 has easily been the worst Pokemon on my team for quite a while. Still, I am quite attached to the thing by now, and it gets the job done decently enough. It also had a lot of use early on when it was the only stage 2 evolution on my team. ~B~[/color]

I find this to be true of most Pokemon I use that evolve via happiness; it's usually hard to get the little buggers in the first place, and then boosting the happiness takes so much tedious effort that one has a tendency to try to make the critter work on the team instead of trying to start over with something new.

Anyways yeah Bold Giratina is great. Dragon Pulse is a stronger move than Claw anyway.

The thing is that unlike in other games, Rayquaza's stats in Emerald are set in stone for your entire playthrough. Nothing you do in game can change it. You could potentially start a new game if the Rayquaza in your current file turned out not to be shiny, but that's a heck of a lot more work than soft resetting, and ultimately it's not worth the effort.

Okay. Shiny Pokemon are not time based, but you are playing Emerald. Emerald has a broken RNG. So, that means that it sets back to zero every time you start the game. Unless you have an early shiny frame, there's no point in SRing.

 

However, if you really have your heart set on it, most people SR for their starter. If they see a shiny Pooch or have their starter shine, it generally means they have an early frame. After 50 or 100 SRs, they change files to change their frame.

The secret to doing well in the Skyscraper/Tree Hollow, aside from having high-level Pokemon, of course, is to have something like a Blissey in your party with Softboiled or Milk Drink, which gives you a way of healing your Pokemon in between battles. Sitrus berries are also incredibly useful there if you have a large supply of them.

Does anyone else love the music from Black and White 2? It's just so well done! I love nearly every single city theme, the Gym Leader battle theme is legendary, the Neo Team Plasma theme is threatening(even though the grunts aren't), heck, I even love the wild Pokemon theme! This literally is the best game soundtrack I've heard all year. Anyone else feel the same way?

 

Also, whoever at Game Freak thought of Audino should get a raise, they have cut the frustration of leveling up Pokemon tremendously.

I think you can do it, as long as your levels aren't too low.

 

Anyone know what happens to my Global Link account if I delete my White 1 file? Do I get a new code, is it the same one? What happens? This is worrying me when I delete it. (And actually train some Unova Pokemon besides the three or four I have now)
