In Pokemon Diamond, Hypnosis has 70% accuracy. In Pokemon Platinum, it has 60%. In a battle between these two games, which value is used?

It depends on the host game. If Platinum is hosting, it will be 60%; if Diamond is hosting, it will be 70%.

On a Wi-Fi battle, if a Plat cart hosts the game, then Hypnosis' accuracy will be 60% for both players, EVEN if the other guy is using D/P. If D/P player is hosting, Hypnosis will be 70%, even if the other guy is using Plat. (source)

There's no official confirmation of the information (by Game Freak or Nintendo), however it has been confirmed on various Pokemon forums. – Kevin Yap Sep 6 '10 at 17:12
So post a link to one of those forum posts – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Nov 5 '10 at 18:09
