From what I know, quite a bit. The IV system was changed from Gen II to Gen III. One of the most important ones was the number of bits per IV - up to Gen II, IVs had 4 bits each, meaning they ranged from 0-15, and affected gender and shininess, also, IVs for Sp. Atk and Sp. Def are the same, and HP is determined based on the other stats (i.e. only 4 IV values are stored, for Atk, Def, Speed and Special). In Gen IV, each stat (Atk, Def, Sp Atk, Sp Def, Spd, HP) each have their own IV values, they now have one more bit each, and range from 0-31. IVs no longer affect gender nor shininess. The coding for the Pokemon in Gen IV also has two extra bits that set whether the Pokemon is an Egg or is nicknamed. Your Crystal Pokemon are probably going to have some missing bits, but as to how that affects them in-game I have no practical knowledge.

more info here

btw, bit and in '8 bits = a byte', not bit as in, well, 'bits and pieces'.

Here's some attack misconceptions i found at serebii:

Myth 1: If your pokemon is at a low level and uses fissure on a higher level enemy, it will hit.

FALSE. Fissure will not work for a level 30 pokemon against a level 50 enemy. In this case, you're shit outta luck if you think it'll happen.

I think it's because of Arena Trap.
Wobbuffets Shadow Tag traps the opponent, regardless of type, and they remain trapped even if Wobbuffet switches out. Of course Wobbuffet can use Encore in addition to having its countering moves, so why you would want to switch out I don't know.
Other than that Dugtrio has some good dark attacks. Other than that I don't know.

Also, Darkrai is a very good counter to Wobbuffet in Uber league.

The first post stated that Focus Punch was better than Brick Break. Wrong! Focus Punch takes time to charge and will ultimately fail if the user is hit by an offensive move on the same turn it was used, unless the Focus Punch's user is slower than the opponent. Besides that, Brick Break can destroy barriers like Light Screen and Reflect. Focus Punch can't. So while Brick Break will charge through those barriers at full power, Focus Punch will deal half-damage when faced with a Reflect barrier. Also, it's better to give Slaking Flamethrower or Thunderbolt when faced with a Skarmory, as either one will do double damage to it, whereas a Fighting type move of any kind will do neutral damage. Not only that, but you'd have the element of surprise in some competitive battles. Not many people would expect a Flamethrowing or Thunderbolting Slaking, in my opinion.

What's the best way of getting more Eevees? I wanted to breed some in SS, but I seem to remember the 'shove it in with it Ditto' method didn't work... Help? bucktooth.gif

"The world spins on pain. I realised that if there is a supreme power, then it is our duty to become it's moral superior." -Lord Havelock Vetinari, Patrician of Ankh-Morpork

"The sentient may perceive and love the universe, but the universe may not perceive and love the sentient. The universe sees no distinction between the multitude of creatures and elements which comprise it. All are equal. None is favored. The universe, equipped with nothing but the materials and the power of creation, continues to create: something of this, something of that. It cannot control what it creates and it cannot, it seems, be controlled by its creations (though a few might deceive themselves otherwise). Those who curse the workings of the universe curse that which is deaf. Those who strike out at those workings fight that which is inviolate. Those who shake their fists, shake their fists at blind stars."- Michael Moorcock, author.

...One question. Can you breed Ditto?

To answer to above's question: as long as the Eevee and Ditto are of similar levels, it should work, just give it time.

I also read that Nidoran (F) becomes sterile after evolution. Is this true?


Actually, this is true. Nidorina and Nidoqueen cannot breed, however Nidoran (M and F), Nidorino and Nidoking CAN. There's not real reason given for it, it's just one of those goofy things, kind of like the Tauros problem. I mean, Volbeat (a male only pokemon) and Illumise (a female only pokemon that looks similar to Volbeat) can breed together and either get a volbeat or an illumise. Why can't Tauros and Miltank do the same?
The more you know, but i have to be honest i didn't know that they couldn't breed after they evolve.

idk if this is considered neckrow posting a thread cuz you know its already pinned but if it is im sorry!!!!

anyway thunderbolt and flamethrower on slaking would be horrible because its more of a physical attacking pokemon and both those moves are spiecal based so they wouldnt do as much as a return would on it double damage or not you have to take the pokemons stats layout into consideration

I seriously do NOT recommend trying to give your CLEARLY winged bugs Fly.

It's never worked for the past 6 Generations.

Hi.



A common misconception is that the player in Pokemon games is 10 years old. This misconception probably exists because in the anime, Ash is 10 and it was stated that 10 is the age where trainers get their first Pokemon. However, anime logic = / = game logic.

It was actually stated that Red is 11, and that the BW protagonists are older than the Gen 1-4 ones. Besides that, we don't know any of their ages as far as I know.

This is also an answer to all the people I've seen who question how the preschooler and tuber trainer classes have Pokemon when they're definitely younger than 10: because the age 10 rule only applies to the anime.

I've got two misconceptions to add:

Shiny Pokémon are stronger than the rest of Pokémon.
Obviously not the case, but it's still believed to be true by lots of people.

Pokérus is a virus, therefore is harmful and must be avoided!
Anyone who had never heard of Pokérus before might get surprised of seeing their Pokémon with that status.
