    Default Simple Questions and Simple Answers 3

    Questions regarding the Pokemon games belong here. Please do not make individual threads for your questions.

    For reference, the original Simple Questions thread is here, the HGSS one is here, and the second Simple Questions thread is here.

    I do encourage that before you ask your questions, you check Bulbapedia for the answer.

    1. When walking in tall grass the calculation Bulbapedia offers is:
    1 in (187.5 / ( x )) per step
    However, since x can be different things for the different pokemon in the grass, does it repeat the calculation for each pokemon very time you step, or does it have some other calculation it uses for each step, then if the first calculation returns true, it then goes through the pokemon or what?

    2. Is 187.5 the same for all (cave, grass, water, etc.) or are they different?

    Default B&W Event Download Problems

    I imported White when it first came out. Just before it was released in Japan, I also imported SS.
    I had no problems getting the JP Manaphy. No problems getting the Enigma Stone.. No problems getting the Liberty Ticket for Victini.

    The last 2 events (Anime egg and polar bear), my DS has not given me the events. It's like it doesn't even see the event being distributed.
    I missed the bear. That's fine and dandy, but there's a Zoroark event coming up. I don't want to miss it and plus I still have yet to get the egg event.

    So far, at home wifi where I have all 3 bars for anything wifi related, at 2 different libraries, and even a starbucks.. My game is not giving me the egg event.

    I know my Wifi is not broken. I do IV battles, surf GTS, trades over wifi and battles all the time.

    Can some one help me out here?

    No idea - I would suggest looking at Smogon.

    Again, I would suggest reading through Smogon's RNGing guides if you're looking to breed flawless Pokemon.

    Are you sure you're selecting the right options on the main menu? For reference:

    Otherwise, I'm not sure what the problem could be.

    I've already tried looking, but I can't find anything on it. In fact, Bulbapedia seems to be the only place (that I could find) with the calculation...

    You need to catch variable forms of Unown. No need to bring them to him.

    I have a question about Masuda Method and the Power items.I have a female Totodile from the GTS. When I checked its IVs I found that it had perfect Attack and Speed IVs. Obviously that means I wish to breed it. My question is do the Power Items work when using Masuda Method? It would make the IV breeding go much easier if it did work, and i have a chance of hatching a shiny baby.

    Bulbapedia seems to imply that they do indeed work:
    [the Masuda method] allows players to customize their team further, with specific egg moves and IVs
    I fear naught but save file corruption.

    Using the e-Reader would allow you to battle certain (generic) trainers there. Nothing too special.
