    Basically, the question boils down to this:

    Because the Pikachu in Yellow is holding a Light Ball when transfered to G/S/C, does that mean it's stats are better than the Pikachus in R/B/G/S/C.

    At least, I think that's what the original question is.

    Yeah, and it was answered a while ago.

    Are Pokemon from the Dream World given set stats when they're transferred, or can you SR for better IVs?

    save before you go pick it up & you can SR for natures/IVs (not shininess though)

    Oh, I just figured they'd always be the same and picked one up soon as I got it. Pretty damn bad stats, but I guess it's taught me to SR for them, too.

    yeah i did that with my first 2 on B/W (lickitung & bellsprout) but all the others i SR'd for decent natures - they can be RNG'd i think but i wouldn't know where to start with that...

    I'm trying to breed a Skarmory that has both Roost and Whirlwind. I have a Pidgeot that knows both these moves, so I tried to breed them, but for some reason I keep hatching a Skarmory that has only the move Whirlwind, and not the move Roost. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, could someone help me?

    that should've worked. are you sure it knows both moves?
    the only other thing i can think of is to nab yourself a female DW skarmory that knows roost and breed it with the pidgeot as moves both parents know will be for sure passed down in this instance.

    EDIT: just checked the bulbapedia page for roost and according to that, Skarmory don't get Roost via breeding. Only by TM in gen 4 and by DW in gen 5.

    Some error at bulbapedia then, because here it says it does: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Skarmory_%28Pok%C3%A9mon%29#By_breeding

    And btw, a female Pokémon can only pass down moves that is learn via level up by the offspring.

    Well then which one is right, because based on what the OP said, even when their Pidgeot knew both moves, and was male, Roost didn't pass down, so i'm going on a guess that the Roost page is right, and Skarm's breeding section is false.

    EDIT: my best bet is that Skarm can learn it through breeding in gen 4 since TM moves pass down, but not in gen 5 and that it was mistakenly carried over on the page format. Although the OP didn't state which gen they were breeding. so idk.

    I think you're right there. It still bothers me that they listed Roost as en egg move when it can be learn via TM, just as Pluck and be learn via TM but it's not listed in the egg move list...

    Anyway, you should report this... somewhere.

    its not so far off topic as its a flaw spotted through a question we were both trying to best answer correctly or thats how i'm spinning it.

    maybe, guess i'll drop a link or something on that page.

    and to add to my own Q's what is significant about sending the DW pokemon that are in Entree forest deeper into the forest? is it just to save space at the front or what?

    True.

    I also have a question. I just breed a male Toxicroak with a ditto, why doesn't my offspring get the moves my Toxicroak got? Since Croagunk can learn it via level up? Some months ago, I breed my Houndoom with a ditto and then my offspring got Houndoom's moves, for example, flamethrower. Why...?

    That should have worked.
