    I just tried this as well, with the following results:

    11 Drilbur

    2 Stones (Everstone x 2)

    9 Gems (Dragon x 2, Flying x 2, Steel x 1, Normal x 1, Ghost x 1, Bug x 1, Electric x 1)

    Though this really isn't enough data to start coming up with percentages, I think it's pretty clear that stones are the least likely class of objects to show up.

    Yep, Gems are definitely more common that stones. At least in my experience.

    Out of 100 dust clouds in Wellspring Cave, I encountered the following:

    40 Drilbur
    51 Gems
    9 Stones

    So I suspect the split is actually something like 40/50/10. However...

    Of the nine stones I found, six were Everstones. There was also a Sun Stone, a Moon Stone and a Shiny Stone. While it's possible I just had a run of questionable luck in finding so many Everstones, I think the explanation is likely one or other of the following:

    1. You can find all stones in dust clouds, but some are more common than others, or
    2. Certain stones are only found in the dust clouds of certain caves.

    With Wellspring Cave being the first cave accessible, it makes a certain amount of sense that I was mostly finding the crappiest stone there. I think that explanation 2 is slightly more plausible than explanation 1, in part because having all stones available in all dust clouds, but with some more common than others, would mean that the least common ones would have an appearance rate of less than 1%, assuming that my estimate of 10% for any item is accurate. In addition, we already know that Pokémon vary between the dust clouds of different caves (with Excadrill appearing in the later ones) so why not vary the stones as well?

    Default tourney with friends, finishing up my team, need help please

    hey so me and my friends are had a pokemon draft. We each drafted 4 pokemon and then we each get a starter of whoever we choose and any pokemon whether he has been drafted or not. Also we get a 7th secret pokemon of who has not been drafted which almost seems pointless to me. We are doing this with no legendaries. Pseudo-legendaries are allowed. we're going to level them up to 65 and then battle them. we are playing in gold and silver and u can trade and what not from red and blue.

    i drafted jolteon, espeon, starmie, and nidoking.

    jolteon will have thunder, thunderbolt, bite, and shadow ball.

    espeon will have psychic, shadow ball, bite, possibly dream eater/nightmare

    starmie will have thunderbolt, surf, ice beam, and psychic

    nidoking will have thunderbolt, ice beam, surf, possibly earthquake

    i have been thinking mainly about using typhlosion with flamethrower, earthquake, thunderpunch, and dynamic punch and snorlax with rest, sleep talk, hyper beam and possibly earthquake as well. i have also been looking mainly at tyranitar or dragonite in place of snorlax because they have such great stats.

    the friends that are the most experiencing and that im mainly focusing on creating a team to beat teams look like this im assuming.

    snorlax, kingdra, dragonite/tyranitar, scizor, crobat, and most likely either charizard or possibly typhlosion

    the other team will most likely be tyranitar, dragonite,
    charizard, heracross, poliwrath, maganium

    i'm open for any advice on which starter and which free guy i should take based on these two teams i will be going up against but i would also like advice on move sets and hold items. thank you for your help in advance and sorry there was so much to read

    Default Lock Capsule

    Does anyone know when the Lock Capsule event is supposed to be released, in order to obtain Snarl?

    I'm pretty sure there hasn't been any news or release dates on it yet.

    I don't think that it'll ever be distributed in my opinion, like how arceus was distributed rather that the azure flute. Just seems like a hassle to transfer the lock capsule from another game just to get a TM, when they could make it possible to download the TM itself

    You could always do this until they do release the TM itself.

    And the same question for the trainers Pokémon, I know that Gym leaders and Elite Four have Pokémon with specially selected moves, but what about common trainers?

    Also, I can find in-battle sprites for trainers, what about the sprites used outside of battles, are they on Bulbapedia?
    Thanks for help, all this is about Gen II by the way. (Pokémon Silver in particular :p)

    Okay, I'm stuck in Pokemon Emerald. Currently, I'm in Lilycove City with a lv. 36-37 team. I've already been through Mt. Pyre and I also explored the route south of it. I went to that cave near Lilycove, but Team Aqua grunts are still blocking it.

    Another grunt and some Wailmer are also blocking the route next to the cave, so I can't go there either.

    I wandered around for a bit, but I still can't figure out what to do here. ._.

    I haven't played Emerald, but this point in the game can't be that much different to R/S. Have you battled your rival in front of the Department Store? ._.

    Once the Orbs have been stolen from the top of Mt. Pyre, go to Slateport City and see Team Aqua steal the submarine; after that, you can enter the hideout next to Lilycove. You may or may not also have to clear out the Magma Hideout in Mt. Chimney at some point around here.
    I fear naught but save file corruption.

    Okay, how about going into the dock/port building in the City? I'm pretty sure something happened there in the games. I haven't played for a while, though...
