    When a Pokémon is level 100 you can get the exact IV range. With level 50, it's usually 50-50, but actually EV training it can help round it down to a more exact number.

    Also, if they RNG, they can manipulate the exact IV.

    If the IV calculator you're using supports multiple "stat snapshots" (statshots?) as input, use a Rare Candy on the Pokémon several times, record its stats at each level, and enter them all in for a more accurate result. If the calculator can only take one set of stats at a time (or if you're lazy), use autoleveling to temporarily get the Pokémon to level 100, look at its new stats, and just use those.

    As always, you can also use an AR or some other bit of technology to check the IVs directly instead.

Here Nature - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia, it says Adamant raises attack and lowers Sp. Attack. But in my game, it has it listed as the opposite. Is it a glitch affecting all games or just mine?
    You're probably just mixing the colors up. The stat in red is increased, while the one in blue is decreased.

    I've been doing the musical solely for the sake of the trainer card star. I thought I had everything as I haven't gotten any new props in five to ten performances, despite having won most of them. I know I have the props handed out by special people (the Santa stuff from the guy in Opelucid City, the electric guitar from the musician, everything the owner gives you under different conditions). In fact, I know exactly what I'm missing.



    Is this just bad luck? Are props harder to get as you get more of them? Is there some special condition I am missing?

    Hello again. I recently bought the French version of pokémon white - just as much for the language as for the trade benefits. But I'm confused. I traded some pokémon over from my French version onto my English Black version - and there doesn't appear to be any sign at all that the Pokémon in question are from the White version - Dewott has his French name, Mateloutre, but that's it. Have I overlooked a button somewhere to view the Pokédex entries in French? A little symbol somewhere to show he's foreign? This is mainly for trading purposes - I'm worried that if I attempt to breed for shinies, I won't be able to use the Masuda method because my English Black version doesn't recognise that I've traded some Pokémon over from a French cartridge?

    Thanks for your help on this,
    Jack

    Unfortunately there's not much way to tell, and since the Pokémon you chose are Unova ones, even less. Gen I-IV Pokémon you can access multilingual Pokédex entries by tapping a button underneath their picture in the Pokédex, but because the BW entries hadn't been translated into all the languages on release, they're only available in the game's home language. With Japanese and Korean you can also tell via the different character sets in the OT name, but French doesn't have such a difference afaik.
    As such about the only way to confirm your Dewott's region would be to trade it to someone who can view it on a PC and read the language byte, as far as I know. It should be possible to make a Gameshark code to show it somehow, but I don't know if there is one made. Though don't worry about the game not recognising it, as long as it was obtained in a French version, even if it evolves from Mateloutre to Samurott, it'll be marked French in its data.

    So, just to spell it out for me completely, as long as it's marked as French in its data (and I'm pretty sure it will be as it's from a French language cartridge), I'll be able to use it for breeding for shinies?

    Thanks! Jack

    I'm having a problem out of my Wi-Fi. I can't seem to battle/trade with anyone in the United States, but I can with anyone who is from a different country. I've temporarily disabled my firewalls, I've tried leaving then entering again, but nothing works.. When it says the other player wants to join me (for a battle), it pretty much freezes. Then, it says " person has failed to respond" even though they have.

    Am I the only one with this problem?

    Is Double Kick a good move to breed onto a Blitzle/Zebstrika?

    IMO, yes. I have it and it comes in handy a lot. It's not super powerful, but useful in a lot of situations.

    I also have a question:
    I have looked around getting different information from everyone, so I would like to see if anyone here can tell me:
    Is it possible to get a reckless hitmonlee with double edge legally?

    If you can transfer said Tyrogue to a Generation III handheld, I don't see why this can't work.

    If Reckless is a Dream World ability, then you're out of luck.

    Two questions:

    If Generation V Pickup "swipes", say Morimoto's Petaya berries, do I get to keep the item after battle?

    I plan to replace Liepard with Bisharp. Should I teach it Aerial Ace by TM or transfer over a Kadabra and breed Psycho Cut onto it?

    I heard some talk about Elesa's speech being changed a lot between the japanese and american version.

    What does the japanese one say? (No idea which of those few times you meet her it is referring to. :/)

    You'll find that the use of some TMs (Flash, Rock Smash, Strength) is mostly limited to areas like caves, so you can have on HM slave that you only use for those areas.

    It's also worth mentioning Wailord, which can learn five HMs and is necessary for a sidequest later in the game. Always a useful Pokémon to have.
