    I have a somewhat silly question:

    Suppose, for some accursed reason, my Imposter Ditto is holding Tyranitarite and I send him out against Tyranitar. After Ditto transforms, will he be able to mega evolve?

    Obviously this has no practical application since, if I really wanted mega Tyranitar on my team, I would just bring Tyranitar and give the mega stone to him. I just wondered how the mechanics of Transform interacted with mega stones.

    No, it can't Mega Evolve if it holds a stone and copies the proper base form. It can copy a mEvolution that's already occurred, but I'm sure you knew that :)

    So quick question about the battle institute.

    I can(and have) used my in game team to get the power items, but now I want to start making a team to go for streaks. I already posted my gyara lead here awhile back, and now I want to know, what would be some good teammates?

    Im thinking Dragonite and ??. Some thoughts ive had(and from talking to people) is something to resist fairy. Which got me thinking either Aegislash or Ferrothorn. Any help?

    Weavile:
    Sworde Dance
    Knock Off
    Ice Shard/Ice Punch
    Low Kick (to OHKO stuff like Heatran and Tyranitar)
    Which Ice-type move is better? And is the old Pursuit set still effective?

    Ice Shard is better due to priority. Also Knock Off is much better in this meta than Pursuit at the moment.

    So could you list Weavile's viablw movesets in OU? Is CB viable?

    That generally is the CB moveset. Other than moves like Night Slash, Ice Punch, and Brick Break.

    Mine runs Night Slash, Ice Punch, Brick Break and Pursuit with a Life Orb, irrc.

    (The breeding chain for Pursuit + Ice Punch was painful... of course it's probably easier now, but this was pre-PokeBank)

    Weavile relies too much on switching between moves for CB. With a Band, he can't use Fake Out, and his Knock Off spam is reduced in power as he has to go Knock Off (97.5 BP) -> Knock Off (65 BP) instead of being allowed to go Knock Off (97.5 BP -> Ice Punch (75 BP) or Knock Off -> Ice Shard (to finish off a switch in that packs priority). Your viable sets will be 4 attack Life Orb and SD + Focus Sash.

    Weavile @ Life Orb
    Pressure
    Jolly
    4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
    ~Knock Off
    ~Ice Shard
    ~Ice Punch/Low Kick
    ~Fake Out/Pursuit

    Weavile @ Focus Sasg
    Pressure
    Jolly
    4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe

    Hoping this is the right place to ask this:

    Ive been breeding/training competitive mons lately, and ive got a 6iv ditto just for this. I put a destiny knot on him, and had right natured 5iv pokemon fairly easy. At least with Scyther, Magikarp, and Dratini.

    Now im breeding a kangaskhan. I have the knot-ditto in there, along with an adament kanga holding an everstone.

    Ive hatched five eggs now, and something very weird has happened. Dittos IV's arent being passed down. Ive tried switching the parent kanga and i still end up with this baby:

    Kangaskhan-Adament
    X/x/31/31/x/x

    Any help?

    The Destiny Knot selects 5 random IVs from both parents, not just from the Parent holding the Destiny Knot. Hoping BAK lets me make an IV breeding video for the BBL channel that better explains IV breeding.

    The Destiny Knot guarantees that five IVs will be inherited, but not necessarily from the parent holding it. What happened was your egg inherited Defense and Special Attack from Ditto and the rest from Kangaskhan (and one random one, of course).

    Just stay patient, you're doing everything right. There's no way to increase the odds of inheriting Ditto's IVs while still passing down Kangaskhan's nature.

    Ok, that makes more sense. So with the others i breeded (Karp, Scyther and Dratini) I had luck on my side when the first eggs all had 5iv's?

    Pretty much. Just replace the parent every time you get a new set of 5 Eggs so you have a better chance of getting a 5IV Pokemon.

    Also if this is for a Smogon OU Competitive team M-Kanga is banned. However if its for VGC have fun.
