Probably a dumb question but:
If you are fighting a pokemon that is dual-type, say Steel/Dragon, and you use a Dragon attack on it, does the x2 super effective and 1/2x not very effective cancel out and make it even? Or is it an issue of primary type. A Steel/Dragon only using type-defense of Steel, while still being able to used both types of attack?
Sorry if this is already or commonly asked, I'm just not sure how this works.
I'm really confused right now. So in my Black 2 game, I have a Zoroark that I got through breeding, and he's at level 74, yet he never learned Night Daze. I know that Night Daze is learned at level 64, but my Zoroark is 10 levels higher than that and the opportunity to learn it never happened. Can bred Zoroarks not learn the move or what?

Hi - I have a couple of questions & comments & I've been sitting on them for weeks hoping to get somewhere, searching the web, harassing my son and I just cant get anywhere!!
First of all, I'm old. LOL well, 36. So I've got Pearl and its the first Pokémon game I've ever played - Ive always wanted to ever since the ... mid -90s I think was when my friends began it. Those same guys I went to high school with are still somewhat into Pokémon today! Unfortunately for me, none of them has a DS or any current games and I am just totally & completely lost. Speaking of unfortunate, now would be a good time to mention that I have some head trauma. So my memory (short term) can range from bad to horrendous. Just FYI. Because sometimes I may come across as ditzy, when in reality its just that I've got a 50 First Dates thing going on.
Ok anyway I have been wandering around for over a week, despite seeing online walkthroughs I am so utterly lost its not even funny. Oh- and my son has a book. It says Pokémon Black & White but I've been told that there is some helpful basic info that I can use from it so I do.
I've gotten to the point where I am not even finding or catching new Pokémon anymore. If I describe my stats or whatever, could somebody maybe advise me what to do....??
The last gym leader that I defeated was I think Crasher Wake. If not him then it was that room full of martial arts guys. You know what? I would not bet on that being accurate so I am going to go grab the game & check.
So I got on & I checked & I'm not 100% sure how to tell but when I look at the League Badges under my trainer card, it shows that I have the first 5. If that is useful info at all, could anybody direct me on what the heck I'm supposed to do??
Here is one point of confusion: Reading in a walkthrough trying to find my way someplace I read a thing about how at one point earlier in the game, there was a Galactic Grunt who was supposed to drop a key. I definitely remember running into that kid & all and doing all of the actions before & after that event BUT... I do *not* remember seeing him drop a key. Nor do I have any key anywhere in my inventory at all. Other than the works key, I mean.
So I went back to the place where he would have been, to see if he'd show up and he doesn't! Its at the Team Galactic HQ, the really ominous looking building. What on earth am I supposed to....?? So short story long, there is nothing new opening up & I'm just kind of stuck with the same old, same old running around in circles... losing my mind a little bit. Trying to catch my "caught" numbers up to the "seen" numbers but that's been roughhhhh!
Starting to feel claustrophobic not being able to get to these other places. I do have surf & fly, btw. I do not have the TM or HM (sorry I cant remember which it is) that is for boulder smashing.
Okay, you should have Fantina's badge, so teach one of your pokemon Surf and go to Jubilife city. Go to the left, and if you haven't been that way before, you should get a Pokedex upgrade. Then you can surf to the left and go to Canalave City and beat your Rival and the Gym Leader. After that, you should know what to do.
Ok I have a question... I am the noobiest noob of all the noobs in Noobland (to Pokémon games), so be forewarned. I seem to have gotten rid of HM Defog at some point when I first began playing (Pearl). There were 1 or 2 spots where I had to get through small foggy areas & I had to just wing it, but now I'm reading a walkthrough (because I am loooooost! very, very lost. You know what kills me? I spent the whole game up til this point wishing I could smash boulders & now that I can, I cannot find a single one to smash. Argh!)....
Anyway, I see that there's a part coming up soon where it seems like Defog is going to be pretty much necessary. I'm not even sure what I did to it. But its gone! Am I totally screwed?
Increase the EVs of your Pokémon. Look for the EV yields of Pokémon in Bulbapedia and go battle the ones that increase your stats best (based on the base stats and your Pokémon moves, if it goes better as a bulky/tank strategy in battles, etc). Go to where they are (the Lv. of these Pokémon doesn't matter). Increase your stats, Lv. is a second priority.
My question now: I recall seeing somewhere there was a new feature (I don't know if it was in BW or B2W2) you could hold L in the middle of a battle to see something about the moves of your Pokémon when using (I don't know if it'd bring the move's info or it'd run a simulation of what'd happen / how much HP you'd take from your opponent). Does someone know about that?

I don't breed for IVs, my Pokémon are caught unless there's a specific move I can only get by breeding, but EV training will certainly help you more than just leveling up (which is very boring - you can get your Pokémon to Lv 100 and take away all the fun of the game). I find battling in subway fun and other parts of the game also limit Pokémon levels equally, if someday you want to battle in these places you'd be kind of ready. :)
Here's a few questions all about shinys. First, does breeding a shiny with another shiny or a regular mon raise the chance at all? I always get different answers on this. And second, does the Masuda Method work with a foreign Ditto? I don't see why it wouldn't, but Ditto breeding has always had special rules.
