    If it can be taught to the species with a TM and the father knows it, it will have those moves. So that's pretty normal in gen four as everything there besides volt tackle is a TM in those games.

    Exclamation Halp!

    I tucked my Pokemon in Dream World yesterday around 3pm and exited at 4pm selecting "Exit DW and wake up" option". But I didn't actually try waking it up until today and it's been on the "The Pokemon is being woken up...Don't turn off the power" screen for 30 minutes. The Global Link website says that it is still ready to be woken up, but it's not doing anything, suggestions?

    EDIT: The wireless function is on and functioning as well, and when I try to enter the Dream World, it says that "No Pokemon is dreaming" and to use the Gane Sync to tuck in a Pokemon, should I turn the game off or what???

    EDIT: Problem solved, I disabled wifi, reset game and it worked, crisis averted.

    If it's for doubles or triples, use Protect. Otherwise, if you're using a Generation IV game, I'd go for Superpower (PtHGSS move tutor); if it's Generation V, probably Take Down.

    This is a generic moveset for Mamoswine, but it still works pretty nicely.

    Trait: Snow Cloak
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    OR - Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SAtk)
    - Ice Shard
    - Earthquake
    - Icicle Crash
    - Stone Edge

    alright so just a few questions, first what do you need to have to figure out the exact IV of a pokemon does it have to be level 100? because every calculator I use gives a range. Also today in emerald just got first shiny (tentacool) I am going to import it into heart gold and am actualy going to EV train it (never have ev trained before) these are his iv's or well the range hp-20-25 attk-26-31 def- 19-24 sp att-23-27 sp deff-12-16 spd-10-15. I was wondering what categories you think I should put ev's into, it isn't really competitive for online because I don't have wi-fi, but just so I could have a pretty powerful guy. Final question is what should I have his moveset be? oh and his nature is serious (adds/looses nothing)

    I think that IVs are most precise at levels 50 and 100. To narrow the range,you must input exact EVs,if your Pokemon has any,the trait (often dozes off,quite finicky,proud of it's power etc.) and whatever the IV guy says to you show him the Pokemon.

    In order for it to be most accurate, it should be at Lv 100, and you need to know the exact EVs, if you dont, I suggest using the EV reducing berries to reduce them to zero, then if you put in the stats at Lv 100 into the calculator it should show the exact IVs.

    I am thinking about trying to complete my pokédex again (not a living dex mind you) and I've started to write down what pokemon I am missing by region, so I was wondering, what is generally the best way to start it off? Do you start with that game's regional pokemon or start from gen 1 and work your way to gen 5?

    I've tried to do that before (I stopped near the end), and I did it in the order of least to most hassle. If there's one of the generations that I only have a few Pokémon from (if I'm near the start of the game), I leave that until last, and focus on the game that I have the most Pokémon from.

    when breeding, if one parent holds the power anklet and the other holds the power bracer, is it possible to get the speed iv from the first and the attack iv of the second at the same time

    Yes, but it's not guaranteed.
    I fear naught but save file corruption.

    It's possible with no power items too so yes. :P

    With one item you're 100% guaranteed that IV in that stat. With two items you are 100% guaranteed one of those IVs in one of those stats. Assuming they are different stats (as they are in your scenario) you have a 50% chance of getting one or the other from the power item and then the normal chance of inheriting an IV from a parent for the other. I'm pretty sure it doesn't increase the odds of getting both at all but I haven't seen any official numbers and I didn't exactly take notes the one or two times I've done that out of curiosity.
