I'll just deal with its permanent nickname.
I have a quesion regarding stat growth via leveling up. According to this Bulbapedia page, it is impossible, through leveling up, for a Pokémon to ever lose points in a stat unless it evolves into a Pokémon with a lower base stat value for that specific stat. While I know how your stat grow through leveling up is basically determined mainly by base stats, does this means I will not lose any point by delaying my Pokemon's evolution? Disregarding EVs, IVs, and Nature, of course.
That means, for example, two level 60 Samurotts trained in the same way, but one evolved from Dewott immediately at level 36 while the other one evolved at level 45, would have the same stats. Am I right?
What is a better nature for a Zebstrika - Jolly or Adamant?
When I tried to send a Pokémon to the Dream World, it said that I needed to wait a day, but the last time I connected was June 18. How can I fix this?
I have a question about White City and Black Forest. I now have both Black and White. When I first got to Black City in Black, it was completely empty, and White Forest in White had just a few people. So, I did the Entralink thing, talked to a bunch of people in both games, and some of them asked to move to Black City/White Forest. I ended up with around six people in both. Now, though, I seem to have hit a wall. I tried to recruit more people a few days later, but none of them actually come. They're there, I can talk to them... they just won't join me. Will I eventually be able to bring more people over, or am I stuck like this?
I've heard this, and I could understand it being the case if the areas were at their maximum population, but they don't seem to be there yet - I can catch five or six different Pokémon in White Forest, and there are five items on sale in Black City, so I assume this correlates to the number of people there. Most sources say that the maximum population is at least ten, so I'm not there yet.
So I am playing emerald and have a question. Which hms do I actually need to get through the game? I know surf will be needed but what else because I don't always like wasting a move on a guy. For example cut and flash, I havent taught any guys those moves yet i just picked a guy from the box and taught it to him and took him out to use it when i needed to.
I'd suggest maybe are the people you're trying to bring over the same ones as you already have? (possible if the game that was visited never saved them being gone, so never added any more) Since you can only have one of each person in any one Forest/City.
