    And yes, specifically positive effects (chances of lowering stats or inflicting ailments, basically) are cancelled in exchange for power. Crush Claw becomes better than Return with a Life Orb, due to no recoil.

    Nidoking is perhaps the best with Sheer Force, due to the following set:

    Modest / Life Orb / Sheer Force
    - Earth Power
    - Flamethrower
    - Thunderbolt
    - Ice Beam
    4 HP / 252 Sp. Attack / 252 Speed

    Earth Power could reduce Sp. Defense, so that gets cancelled and power increases. The other three moves could inflict status ailments, so that's exchanged for power. All 4 moves get both Life Orb and Sheer Force, hitting with 169% of their usual force, and no recoil comes from Life Orb.
    Thanks for the help it makes sense now, using Brave Bird would mean nothing because of it having a negative effect the same with Superpower. So, a move like Crush Claw/Air Slash/Rock Slide/Shadow Claw would be boosted because the secondary effect would be lower opponent Defense/cause the opponent to flinch/critical hit, but those effects would be gone so the move themselves would be more powerful. Now I know how to set up Braviary's moveset.

    I am getting the German version of Pokemon Black or White (haven't decided yet) because I hope it might help my German (I want to learn it, but it's damn hard).

    However all my other games are in English, so my question is:

    What are the advantages/disadvantages of getting a German game?
    Does the Pokeshifter work with my English games etc.?

    Due to reaching 90 friends om my 3DS, I will not add anyone anymore random people, I'm sorry, don't take it personally.

    The obvious disadvantage is that you can't understand most of it. That's also the advantage though, if you're getting it to help learn German.

    One of the only problems you should run into is when you're told to do something in-game, but you can't understand it. Other than that, it's like all of the other games. Get a team, kick butt, run around, save the world, kick even more butt, the end.


    I can't help you with the Shifter question though, since I don't have any experience with B/W at all. :|

    I am gonna play it with my dictionary next to me at all time so that won't be much of a problem and if I don't know what to do I'll be using Bulbapedia, but thanks anyway.

    I recall hearing quite often that using the PokéShifter requires that both games be in the same language.

    skarmory can learn Fly / Cut / Rock Smash / Defog & is pretty sturdy - also bibarel can learn Surf / Strength / Rock Climb / Waterfall so they make a good pair for getting round the games

    thanks bro. :D
    Also, I got a spiritomb from my brother. But it said he caught it at pokemon league. Is it a glitch or is it hacked?

    he used a catch other trainer's pokemon code. it will be cynthia's spirtomb. its flawless, and should be considered a hack.

    Really? Because I was told that her Garchomp was flawless, but its attack is extremely low for its level. But that was also in Pearl, so I don't know about Platinum.

    it may be due to its nature that it has a low attack.

    I've seen many Ipod/Iphone pokemon apps that are pokedexs. Which one is the best of them and is any of them affiliated with Bulbapedia?

    When you login to WFC, how does it tell which region you're in? Is it only based on the game version or does it check which physical location the WiFi network is based in? I'm going to China soon and I really don't want to miss the crown beast WiFi events...hoping to not miss the UK Celebi event either but the dates haven't been announced for that yet.

    As stated numerous times in the Bulbanews thread on the UK Crown Beasts distribution (and probably elsewhere), the Mystery Gift system discriminates only on the basis of game language (and, of course, game version). If you have an English Generation IV game and a Wi-Fi connection, you can get the events.

    this may seem stupid but how do you EV train effectively and fast again?

    was it give it 10x vitamins for them to reach 100 EV, then pokerus + power item and kill a certain pokemon 15x to get it's EV to 250 then kill it without the power item just pokerus to get it to 252?

    correct, as long as the pokemon you kill gives 1 ev in desired stat. if it gives 2, kill 12 with item, followed by 4 without.
