Is it really suggested that the IVs of a Pokémon should all be 31 to be competitively viable?
User avatar #526022 to #525978 - makotoitou (11/02/2013) [-]
Speed is the important one, you can drop the rest slightly if needed. If you're only using one attacking type you can completely forget the other.
User avatar #525995 to #525978 - kyouko (11/02/2013) [-]
31 and 30, yes. Only 30 if you want to have a specific Hidden Power. Though in this gen, it's not as important.
User avatar #525991 to #525978 - octavia (11/02/2013) [-]
It's not necessary but highly recommended. Personally, I wouldn't go lower than 3/6 "outstanding", but that's for shiny pokemon. For regular 4/6 "outstanding" is where I set my limit.

Thanks to Destiny knot, it's pretty easy to get 4/6 or 5/6 pokemon
User avatar #525980 to #525978 - volero (11/02/2013) [-]
31 stat points can make or break you.
User avatar #525979 to #525978 - chezburgadominator (11/02/2013) [-]
I'm asking because I want to start breeding to play competitively but I am not sure about anything at the moment.
User avatar #525981 to #525979 - gagster (11/02/2013) [-]
Well not necessarily all stats, preferebly HP, ATT or SP.ATT, Defence,Sp.def, and speed

The most important would be HP Speed and whichever attack stat you prefer.

Can someone suggest a set for metagross?
User avatar #525969 - supertanto (11/02/2013) [-]
so what are the best ways to go ditto catching? I've just started the battle with a low level fletchling in my party with a smoke ball, then once its used transform, i've switched into aegislash so it cant touch it
User avatar #525971 to #525969 - volero (11/02/2013) [-]
Friend Safari.
IVs come easy there.
User avatar #525973 to #525971 - volero (11/02/2013) [-]
Plus, they're only level 30, so one false swipe will get them down to 1 hp.
User avatar #525974 to #525973 - supertanto (11/02/2013) [-]
the way i;ve been doing it false swipes are 1 hp too. but when a wild ditto transforms, does it inherit catch rate?
User avatar #525982 to #525974 - volero (11/02/2013) [-]
I just tested it, and it doesn't seem like it. It keeps its own catch rate.
I've been using a Scyther for a while.
Just tried a Nincada and it seemed liek the same catch rate (no 1 hp nincada breaks out of the ultra ball)
User avatar #525993 to #525982 - nomora (11/02/2013) [-]
What level was the Ditto, because different levels do affect what balls work effectively, ie Ultra Balls actually are bad on low level Pokemon.
User avatar #526006 to #525993 - volero (11/02/2013) [-]
It was level 30.
User avatar #526008 to #526006 - nomora (11/02/2013) [-]
I've noticed that Great Balls work best for capturing until level 40, so try using them.
User avatar #525975 to #525974 - nomora (11/02/2013) [-]
My own experiences say yes.
User avatar #525977 to #525975 - supertanto (11/02/2013) [-]
yes yes this is good
User avatar #525954 - chezburgadominator (11/02/2013) [-]
How do I add more people to my Friend Safari and how do I level up my O-Powers?
User avatar #525970 to #525954 - volero (11/02/2013) [-]
Just add people to your 3DS friend list.
Use them a lot.
User avatar #525968 to #525954 - supertanto (11/02/2013) [-]
add them as a friend on your 3ds
User avatar #525967 to #525954 - kimonogirlvalerie (11/02/2013) [-]
Add people on 3DS
Dunno
User avatar #525966 to #525954 - tysta (11/02/2013) [-]
O-powers are leveled up by using them frequently.
As for Friend Safari, I haven't reached it yet so I can't help you there.
User avatar #525945 - supertanto (11/02/2013) [-]
destiny knot transfers IVs, correct?
User avatar #525953 to #525945 - chezburgadominator (11/02/2013) [-]
5 random IVs from both parents.
User avatar #525948 to #525945 - kimonogirlvalerie (11/02/2013) [-]
5 random ones yes
User avatar #525952 to #525951 - kimonogirlvalerie (11/02/2013) [-]
It picks 5 of the holders IVs at random and passes them down
User avatar #525955 to #525952 - supertanto (11/02/2013) [-]
ok chezburgadominator
so it doesn't matter which parent holds it, but the child will hold 5 random IVS from the parents?
User avatar #525962 to #525955 - chezburgadominator (11/02/2013) [-]
@As of Pokémon X & Y, this item, when attached to a Pokémon while breeding, will cause the baby Pokémon to inherit 5 IVs from its parents
(From Serebii)
User avatar #525964 to #525962 - supertanto (11/02/2013) [-]
ok so it doesn't matter
User avatar #525959 to #525955 - kimonogirlvalerie (11/02/2013) [-]
Oh no wait, just the holder of the Destiny Knot
User avatar #525961 to #525959 - supertanto (11/02/2013) [-]
chezburgadominator can you confirm this?
User avatar #525963 to #525961 - kimonogirlvalerie (11/02/2013) [-]
"However, as of X & Y, if you have one of the parents hold the Destiny Knot item, then 5 IVs total from either parent will be guaranteed to be transferred"
I don't know if that mean from both at the same time or whether it picks a parent then uses 5 of their IVs
User avatar #525965 to #525963 - supertanto (11/02/2013) [-]
alright. thanks

Ok, since Pokébank costs money what I'll do is make my friend buy it (he's buying it anyway) and then trade BW to his X, then his X to my Y. this sounds dirty
User avatar #525985 to #525921 - garaichu (11/02/2013) [-]
Dude, it's gonna be free the first month.
User avatar #525941 to #525921 - mysticpichu (11/02/2013) [-]
the only reason I would use it is to keep my pokemon when I start a new game if that's even possible
User avatar #525931 to #525921 - kyouko (11/02/2013) [-]
It's 5$.
5$.
You can't even be arsed to pay god damn 5$?
User avatar #525934 to #525931 - finblob ONLINE (11/02/2013) [-]
pretty much.
User avatar #525947 to #525934 - supertanto (11/02/2013) [-]

User avatar #525972 to #525947 - finblob ONLINE (11/02/2013) [-]
I think it's pretty obvious who the better jew is.

You're cheap.

I only need to move 1 Pokémon. I'm not paying a fiver for that.

You can use it to store lotsa mons.
User avatar #525932 to #525931 - tysta (11/02/2013) [-]
If it's anything like Google Play, and they don't add proper payment systems...
Honestly, if they don't even bother adding PayPal they can wave byebye to my contribution.
User avatar #525933 to #525932 - kyouko (11/02/2013) [-]
I would assume they use the money you add into the 3DS.
User avatar #525924 to #525921 - volero (11/02/2013) [-]
It's free for a month when it first comes out.
User avatar #525926 to #525924 - finblob ONLINE (11/02/2013) [-]

User avatar #525927 to #525926 - volero (11/02/2013) [-]

why cant we just have a pal park? i loved pal park.
User avatar #525922 to #525920 - nomora (11/02/2013) [-]
Because Pal Park only worked for the original DS because of that dual slot system with the GB games and DS

Did it also die by its burn? That's what happened to the one in my X game. Suicidal fatty doesn't want to be caught.
User avatar #525899 to #525896 - stadic ONLINE (11/02/2013) [-]
The snorlax in X and Y reappears if you don't catch it
User avatar #525904 to #525899 - kyouko (11/02/2013) [-]
It reappears even if you do catch it.
User avatar #525914 to #525904 - nomora (11/02/2013) [-]
Hasn't reappeared for me.
User avatar #525930 to #525914 - kyouko (11/02/2013) [-]
It has for me
User avatar #525898 to #525896 - princessren (11/02/2013) [-]
no, it rested and used a berry to wake up
User avatar #525891 to #525887 - nomora (11/02/2013) [-]
It's got a catch rate lower than that of some legendaries.
User avatar #525892 to #525891 - princessren (11/02/2013) [-]
I did not know that
User avatar #525893 to #525892 - nomora (11/02/2013) [-]
Shaymin, Mew, Celebi, Reshiram, and Zekrom are the ones it is lower than.
User avatar #525888 to #525887 - volero (11/02/2013) [-]
Snorlax is a bitch to catch.
User avatar #525889 to #525888 - princessren (11/02/2013) [-]
he put two of my pokemon to sleep throughout the battle
then used rest and used a berry to wake up
I just ran and gave up
User avatar #525890 to #525889 - volero (11/02/2013) [-]
I paralyze it, then use a fighting type with Low Kick. It does more damage the heavier the target is. So you can get him down to low health fast.
User avatar #525885 - finblob ONLINE (11/02/2013) [-]
Fennekin had so much potential.

Why Delphox? Why!?
User avatar #525905 to #525885 - kyouko (11/02/2013) [-]
It had no potential, tho
User avatar #525907 to #525905 - finblob ONLINE (11/02/2013) [-]
But it was a Firefox.
Braixen could have become something cool.
Not a tranny.
#525909 to #525907 - kyouko (11/02/2013) [-]
Nigga, you insulting the best in the fennekin line?
Braixen has a wand. A god damn wand.
User avatar #525910 to #525909 - finblob ONLINE (11/02/2013) [-]
No, what I'm saying is Delphox could have been cooler because Braixen was cool.
Braixen was the best of that line, but Delphox ruined it by looking like a tranny.
User avatar #525911 to #525910 - kyouko (11/02/2013) [-]
I don't mind Delphox either, but that movepool fucks up the whole concept of a mage.
User avatar #525912 to #525911 - chezburgadominator (11/02/2013) [-]
I've never used Delphox, what do you mean by that?
User avatar #525929 to #525912 - kyouko (11/02/2013) [-]
One would assume a mage has good overall coverage, but Delphox's coverage is worse than Charizard's.
User avatar #525940 to #525929 - chezburgadominator (11/02/2013) [-]
Oh, I thought of it like this;Fire Mage based heavily on attack spells and spells to buff those attacks. So I assumed Delphox would be just a really frail Special Attacker.
User avatar #525949 to #525940 - kyouko (11/02/2013) [-]
Delphox isn't really that frail.

Delphox' only good moves is Fire Blast, Psychic and Grass Knot. That's it.

I've just noticed something fun while I was free-batting. Try saying "Wake up!" after your pokemon has been put to sleep for about 2 consecutive turns the next time you're in battle. You'll be pleasantly surprised at the effects. It has worked for me 3 times now, so I'm starting to think it's linked to the pokemon-amie feature that can also be used at the end of every battle.

...
Please tell me you're not serious
User avatar #525837 to #525836 - thegreathoodoo (11/02/2013) [-]
W-why? it works. you know you can talk to them in pokemon-amie too, right?
User avatar #525838 to #525837 - bouncykirby (11/02/2013) [-]
In battle sleep stays for 1-3 turns
User avatar #525839 to #525838 - thegreathoodoo (11/02/2013) [-]
Not always. plus it has worked on the 1st and second turns too. I dunno, maybe it's nothing but more than an odd coincidence. i just thought it was kind of funny lol
User avatar #525840 to #525839 - bouncykirby (11/02/2013) [-]
Yes always
User avatar #525842 to #525840 - thegreathoodoo (11/02/2013) [-]
I must have really bad luck otherwise because i've never had a pokemon wake up for me straight after being put to sleep, unless it has a berry or item that is lol
User avatar #525986 to #525842 - ecomp (11/02/2013) [-]
It's happened to me before. It's just a coincidence.
User avatar #525841 to #525840 - thegreathoodoo (11/02/2013) [-]
No, i know what you're saying, i just mean that they have woke up before that by saying "wake up!"

So is it impossible to get a Venusaur with it's HA? Because I've caught eight fucking Ivysaurs in the Safari and NONE OF THEM have it.

It should be, but in order for it to happen it is required that the other person be online at the same time you're in their safari. Don't quote me on that now, as i haven't actually tried it myself yet. it's just something i heard Marilland mention on one of his
play-throughs.

Hope I could be of some help to you.
User avatar #525832 to #525826 - thegreathoodoo (11/02/2013) [-]
Speaking of Marilland, why the heck hasn't he touched his walk-throughs in weeks?
Is he kill? It just seems very out of character for him.

It's the same with Bulbapedia, only i assume that's just something to do with litigation on Nintendo's side. it's happened before, so it doesn't surprise me.
User avatar #525828 to #525826 - goochmaster (11/02/2013) [-]
Okay, THAT actually makes a lot of sense. The person isn't online right now.
User avatar #525825 to #525824 - goochmaster (11/02/2013) [-]
Also, how do I check what Hidden Power my pokemon has?
User avatar #525830 to #525825 - thegreathoodoo (11/02/2013) [-]
As far I know it only becomes active during battle, hence the name.
but again I may be wrong, I'm only on my second day so I'm not sure if they've altered some of the mechanics lol

a house in anister city.

I'll have to take note of that. Thanks.

So, how do I reset Xerneas EVs? I was obligated to fight with him on my team and I had Exp. Share on so it might have get useless EVs.
User avatar #525814 to #525811 - crazychaos ONLINE (11/02/2013) [-]
Or you can repeatedly tap the touch screen with no bag in place and you'll receive bags. A probably much more efficient method than running around until you get one...
User avatar #525815 to #525814 - totodigatr (11/02/2013) [-]
Alright, thank you too.
User avatar #525812 to #525811 - RisenLichen (11/02/2013) [-]
Get a Reset bag. You get one by having your bottom screen on super training and just by walking around and getting lucky. Your pokemon sometimes find certain bags and it might find a reset
User avatar #525813 to #525812 - totodigatr (11/02/2013) [-]
Based Lichen thank you. I have never used that thing before
User avatar #525816 to #525813 - thegreathoodoo (11/02/2013) [-]
You can also just tap the shit outta the blank bag in ST, on average it will take about 5- 10 minute for a pure while (reset bag) to drop. get ready for some serious carpel tunnel though, those fuckers take forever to bust open lol
