    @.woasaka: I'm trying to avoid the mentions, actually. I don't know if "drug" names count, but I wouldn't try it.

    First, six (or even five) isn't that bad. I've won with that much. You have two other rounds to make it up. What are the colours of your hearts? Pink or red? The red hearts depend on the Pokemon's condition, the pink hearts on how you dress it up (you may want to check with the game itself at the contest hall). Platinum made getting well rounded conditions fairly easy with the ability to buy poffin at the department store basement in Veilstone. Just rotate between each type of poffin, feeding one type at a time. Your Pokemon, preferably would have a neutral nature. Or, if you have friends, make poffins yourself.

    The key to the first round after getting your conditions is knowing what accessories to use. This should help. Just see what the theme is, close your DS so it auto-pauses and jot down which of those accessories would work for you.

    As for the dance round, you just need to have good tempo.

    The appeals round, I generally have a simple four-move formula that I can't quite remember.

    ->4 hearts if move first/last
    ->move first/last next turn
    ->Double heart next turn
    ->General appeal move

    A master of none? My Dragonite would be insulted. Granted, it won all these ribbons pre-E4 meaning I didn't have to fight people like Fantina, though in their case, you just have to get lucky depending on what contest they're in, they can be impossible.
    Wow, thanks! I finally won! Now I just need to win the Tough Contests and Beauty contests and I'll have all the contest ribbons ^^ (Except Gen. 3 ones, of course)

    Is there a difference between the natures of Bashful, Docile, Hardy, Quirky and Serious? In the Nature Bulbapedia page it says that all of them don't make any changes to the stats or have a favourite or disliked flavour.

    It's woaska, but maybe you wrote that wrong on purpose too? Why using the @ then, lol.

    As far as I know, the only difference is the effect they have on Pokéathlon stats in HGSS.

    I just started Black and my Snivy has a Modest nature, meaning that her Sp.Atk is increased and Attack decreased, but her characteristic is Quick Tempered, meaning that she has Attack IV's (I think). I've been playing since Blue version, but I'm still noobish when it comes to IV's and EV's, so my question is will the Sp.Atk boosting nature and Attack boosting characteristic balance each other out to fairly neutral stats?
    Boosh!

    Are the genders of the Zen Darmanitan in the Desert Resort randomly generated or are they all males?

    having the Characteristic "Quick Tempered" (you're sure it's not "a little quick tempered"?) just means that it's highest IV is in it's Atk stat, thus meaning that stat will shine better than the rest of it's stats. It's atk iv is one of the following with that specific characteristic: 4, 9, 14, 19, 24, 29.
    And assuming it's a fresh pokemon, it won't have any EVs.

    EV = points given to a pokemon for defeating (or participating in a battle and coming out the victor), +4 EVs = +1 stat point
    IV = hidden value between 0-31 that determine the internal potential of a pokemon (mainly competitively)

    So basically, since your Snivy is Modest it's Atk. stat won't grow as quickly as it would with any other nature that aren't -Atk.
    But this is all just going off what i know so take my mumblings with a pint of salt :X

    I understand that in double battles, the power of moves that hit multiple targets (Surf, Rock Slide etc) have their damage reduced. How much is reduced in triple battles, when the attack will hit all 3 (say, a Pokémon in the middle uses surf)?

    They are randomly generated with the gender ratio of 50% male and 50% female which is 1:1. I have a female Zen Mode Darmanitan from the Desert Resort.

    @.Joshawott: I believe that the power of any move that hits multiple Pokémon in triple battles has its power reduced to 75%, the same as in double battles. However, a Pokémon in the middle position using a multi-target move will receive an attack bonus that essentially brings the power of multi-target moves back up to their normal effectiveness.

    I think you should levle up most of your Pokemon because they are quite low leveled for the E-4 and also get rid of Horn Attack and Double Slap on Nidoking because it is useless and can be replaced with better moves.

    @.Kommander: As your team is just meant to battle against the Elite Four, I would recommend simply leveling them up. Almost any decent team can take down the E4 so long as they're properly leveled. As you're using Ho-oh, I'll assume that you're fighting the Johto Elite Four - if you bring in a team where all of the members are around lv.50 and carry a good supply of healing items with you, you should be fine.
