@.woasaka: I'm trying to avoid the mentions, actually. I don't know if "drug" names count, but I wouldn't try it.
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.
effect they have on Pokéathlon stats in HGSS.
I fear naught but save file corruption.

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

Humans and pokémon no longer live in harmony. Hear their tales in The Poké Wars Chronicles: Tales From A World At War
Cynthia once had it all: powerful pokémon, fame and hordes of adoring fans. But Ho-oh's campaign tears her life asunder. Now to survive this deadly new world, she must do the one thing that she never wanted: kill. Follow her trials through a world at war in Poké Wars: Downfall of a Champion
@Drakon the 1st one i caught was a female so i assume it's random.
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)?
@.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.
As the title suggests I'm looking for some advice, I am currently having a lot of trouble with the champion, and to a lesser degree the 4th member of the elite4.
Here is my team - please be brutal in tearing it apart. Also if you could let me know of any changes in moves/pokemon/leveling etc~!!!! Thanks in advance :D.
Item - Quick Claw
Item - Nevermelt Ice
Item - Amulet Coin
Item - King's Rock
Item - Exp.Share(will most likely be changing who carries this!)
I also have a 36 Bellossom whom is usually part of my team, however he has proven quite useless in the elite4, I was considering raising either a machop or maybe an eevee evolution however I am open to suggestions!
@.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.
