    When I'm able to I'm gonna switch out Herdier and Panpour for Darumaka and Sandile
    so then my party would be Unless I should take out 2 other pokemon for those two

    -Sandile
    - Darumaka
    -Tympole
    -Drilbur
    -Servine
    -Pidove

    My real question is should I get Tirtouga or Archen
    For Titouga i would take out Tympole because both can learn Surf
    then for Archen I would take out Pidove because both can learn Fly

    I'm far from Relic Castle lol but its just been bugging me so much on which fossil I should get and who I should take out for it
    Hmm if you didn't have so many Ground Types already in your planned team I'd say ditch Pidove and get Archen because I don't like Unfezant too much. But I'd get rid of Tympole and get Tirtouga in your case. Carracosta is pretty good anyway.

    From what your teams Types are, I would say to get Tirtouga. If you do that though, I perfer you get one with Solid Rock.

    However, Archen has exremely high raw power, plus high Speed. However, might not fit in your team do to the fact that you would have three Pokemon with a Water Type weakness.

    When I'm doing my playthough of Pokemon BW2, I'm gonna challenge myself to like, Gym Multi Battles. Please don't ask why...

    Anyway, which do you think are the best combo of Types for the first Gym Battle, second Gym Battle, and so on. I was thinking like this:

    1st Gym Match: Rock - Ground
    2nd Gym Match: Steel - Poison
    3rd Gym Match: Ghost - Dark
    4th Gym Match: Electric - Psychic
    5th Gym Match: Grass - Bug
    6th Gym Match: Fire - Fighting
    7th Gym Match: Water - Ice
    8th Gym Match: Normal - Dragon

    Also, sence I'm going to do my games in Challenge Mode, should I "Challenge Mode" this as well?

    I started the game over I was thinking of this party at this point in the game

    Drilbur
    Herdier
    Pignite
    Tympole
    Sandile
    Darumaka

    I ditched Pidove because I just dont like how Unfezant looks lol but then theres always Rufflet in the later part of the game and then it inolves to Braviary and there is Mandibuzz too

    Yes, it is. If you use veekun's Poke Ball Performance calculator, you'll see that the chance of shakes is always higher than the chance of being caught.

    I have a question I like to ask of you. If I were to compete in Pokemon World Tournament, which kind of tier pokemon will have the best chance of winning the tournament? Is it the Ubers,Overused,Underused,Neverused,Rarelyused, or anything else?

    The PWT doesn't go by tier, however if you want somewhat of an answer I'd say Ubers, whatever ones they'll let you use, Ubers tend to have the highest stats but I'm guessing a lot of legendaries will be banned from the PWT.

    EV's are Effort Values. After Every battle you earn experience, you'll also earn EVs. These EVs help a Pokemon's stats grow. You can EV train in a particular stat by defeating Pokemon that give out the correct EVs to make the stat better. For example if you want a Physical attacker, put EVs into Attack and Speed and max those out. A Pokemon can earn a total of 510 EVs, and a max of 255 per stat. Pokerus doubles the EVs earned in a battle, making it useful for EV training quicker, and a Power Item will also increase the number of EVs you earn in a battle by 4 in that particular stat, combined with Pokerus makes the process quicker and easier. Also, Vitamins like Protein give 10 EVs and Wing items introduced this Gen give out 1. However you can only give a maximum of 10 Vitamins. EVs can be erased using the EV reducing berries, Pomeg, Kelpsey, Qualot, Hondew, Grepa and Tomato berries.

    IVs stand for Individual Values. I'ts a hidden number that determinies a Pokemon's stats. IVs can be between 0 and 31. 0 is the least and 31 is perfect, The Higher the IV the higher the stat will be. The stat is the highest possible it can be with a beneficial Nature, an 31 IV and maxed EVs. There is no way to increase IVs. They are set once you catch a Pokemon or take an egg from the Daycare man.

    You can also gain more benefits from EVs when you give your Pokemon stuff like Protein and Calcium. If you give a Pokemon one of these, and then level them up, then the stat that the medicine applies to will increase even more, with the obvious exception of PP. Here's a list of each one.

    HP Up - HP
    Protein - Attack
    Calcium - Sp. Attack
    Carbos - Speed
    Zinc - Sp. Defense
    Iron - Defense
    PP Up - PP
    PP Max - Maxes out the PP of a move

    So if you're working on the attack and speed stats, give the Pokemon Protein and Carbos and then level it up via EV training. Rare Candies are not recommended when EV training. xP

    Another thing, certain berries will decrease the EVs in a stat. This is useful for when battles like gym battles give your Pokemon EVs you don't want. You can only max two stats, so yeah.

    The Macho Brace, I believe, also increases EVs earned in battle, but it lowers the Pokemon's speed too.

    Question Re: Simple Questions / Simple Answers (Gen 5)

    A really quick question about TM's in Gen 5. I just got a level 14 Sandile and want to teach it Dig. However, I know he learns the move naturally at Level 31. What's gonna happen if I teach him Dig via TM now versus him learning it naturally at level 31? Thanks in advance for any info anyone can give to help me with this.

    Nothing, just the Sandile won't learn anything at level 31.

    Oh ok, that's good. I was afraid I was gonna screw with his learn set or something. Thank goodness! Also, thanks for the quick reply. :)

    If I may also add, yay for re-usable TMs!!!
