Looking through the Bulbapedia learnset entries for each HM move, I have found no instances within each HM set where a Pokemon learn it, but its evolution can not; Cut (HM01) Diglett/Dugtrio can learn Cut in Yellow, but not in R/B Fly (HM02)* Surf (HM03)* Strength (HM04) Flash (HM05 Gen 1-3) Venonat/Venomoth can to learn Flash in Yellow, but not in R/B. ...

Since the collectible-ness of Pokemon is a big part of the game, the creators tried to make it intentionally difficult to delete your data. In order to do it, go to the main screen of the game (where it shows the legendary and tells you to press start) and press Up, Select, and B at the same time. This will bring up some menu options that will be able to ...

Yep, all WiFi things (so inluding GTS) from 4th and 5th gen are removed. Official announcement by Nintendo said: As of May 20, 2014, certain online functionality offered through Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection is no longer accessible. The discontinued services include online play, matchmaking and leaderboards for many Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games. ...

Sorry to tell you, but you can't. You need to use another Nintendo DS (or DSi, 3DS, anything). The guy at the Transfer Lab even tells you that you need another one.

HP Surf in Icirrus City - Stunfisk (100%, 2 HP EV) Note also, There's Victini (for 3 HP EV) that can be rebattled infinitely as long as it is not caught.

In Pokemon Generations 1-5 you do not gain experience from catching, however in Pokemon Generations 6+ (X and Y, and Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire), You do indeed gain Exp From catching Pokemon

There are enough differences between the two to warrant playing both versions, but they're few enough that you can jump straight to White/Black 2 without missing out on anything major. The region, Unova, is generally the same as the first games, however some of the differences are: New locations are accessible Your journey starts in a new town called ...

The sending partner receives no entry for the evolved Pokémon, while the receiving partner receives both entries. There is no feedback to the sender that the Pokémon evolved, and for the receiver it simply evolves on arrival.

Another thing to consider when using Surf and Waterfall is that Surf is a "Special" move and Waterfall is a 'Physical' move. What this means is that when you attack with Surf, the damage it does is based off of your Pokemon's Special Attack stat and the defending Pokemon's Special Defence stat. With Waterfall, it's your Pokemon's (regular) Attack and the ...

The day in-game is the same as the current real-world day of the week, assuming your system clock is set properly on your DS.

Generation V removed contests, and therefore provides no methods to raise or check any of Contest stats of a Pokémon, excluding the Feebas evolution for checking Beauty. There are a few approaches involving third-party tools to viewing the stats of your Pokémon in detail (such as dumping the save, or tricking the game to use an incorrect GTS server), and ...

Pokemon with N's trainer ID appear after using the Memory Link feature with Pokemon Black / White. Here's a list of Pokemon with N's trainer ID. The list also includes their locations. You can catch his legendary dragon by visiting the ruins of his castle after completing the game and defeating him in a battle, then taking the stone you receive to ...

Flying was the only holdout with no pure type pokemon, which as you note Gen V changes. From Bulbapedia: Prior to Generation V, this type was the only one of the seventeen that was never seen as an authentic pure type; Tornadus is the first pure Flying type. There are, however, a large number of type combinations that don't exist.

According to Bulbapedia, there are 4 Pokemon with the ability Wonder Skin. Sigilyph's Slot 1 ability is Wonder Skin, so you do not need Dream World access for this. However, with Venomoth, Skitty, and Delcatty, for whom Wonder Skin is a hidden ability, this is more difficult. In Pokemon Black 2/White 2, there are only a few sources of Pokemon with hidden ...

It's not about the individual As was said in Williham Totland's answer, it's about the overall typing of the team, not the typing of the individual pokemon. No one pokemon will be able to rise to any challenge you face, but that is why you have room to carry six with you. A good starting point is to pick pokemon with different typings, both offensively and ...

Yes you can. However you need some special hardware. First you need a Flashcart. A flash cart is an special cartridge which allows the use of homebrew in the DS. Homebrew software is software developed by the community to be used on certain device or environment. This homebrew usually comes in the form of roms or similar. With that said, you can use such a ...

According to Serebii, starting in Pokémon Black & White, the developers started instituting locks where Pokémon could be caught in a wild but prevented from being shiny. These locks are mostly done on the signature legendary Pokémon of the games, but do range further. These Pokemon are: Victini, Reshiram and Zekrom in BW Reshiram and Zekrom in B2W2 ...

Your first stumbling block will be event Pokemon. Simply put, without someone to trade with, you wont. You can still trade locally, but if you have no-one to trade with nearby you won't be able to get certain Pokemon. That said, if you simply discount event Pokemon, then it is possible to get the rest of the national dex, but you'll need to at least ...

It isn't. The only time it's been possible to transfer Pokemon back to a previous generation was way back in gen 2 where they could potentially be sent back to gen 1. From gen 3 to gen 4 onward any transfers of Pokemon to newer generations have been permanent including those done through that silly archery minigame thing you use to move them from gen 4 ...

All legendaries can be caught with relative ease without using a Masterball. However, there are some that are particularly more annoying to catch without one. Stationary legendaries (those that sit in a single location until you catch/defeat them) are often far easier to catch without a Master Ball. If only for the fact that you can save while standing ...

There does not appear to be any way to increase the chance of rustling grass, or the water/cave equivalents rippling water and dust cloud. They seem to occur after an unknown number of steps have been walked, and they only seem to appear on the current screen when this number of steps has occurred. So for best results outdoors find an easily accessible patch ...

You can't water a berry right after you plant it; it kind of "waters itself" at that moment. That's why the soil is dark: because it's already moist. As time passes, the soil's color becomes lighter, and that means it's drying. Then you can water the berry. If you plant a berry and check the next day, you'll probably notice it's dryer, and will be able to ...

I've filled both the Gen IV National Pokedex and the Gen V Unova Pokedex, except for Meloetta. Here are some guidelines: If you battle every trainer, you will be able to see every Pokémon in the local Pokédex, even if you can't catch it. The only exception are the version-exclusive Tornadus or Thundurus, Landorus (who requires both Tornadus and Thundurus to ...

Yes, as awesomesocks42 mentions the type of Pokemon you put to sleep influences which area of the Dream World you will visit. Here is a list to help you determine which type will increase your chances to visit a particular area: Q: Does the type of Pokemon I tuck-in influence which area I go to? A: Yes, depending on the Pokemon's type you'll visit a ...

No. Pikachu, Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur can only be obtained in Black/White 2 by trade, or special events. Ways to obtain Pikachu and the Red/Blue starters in BW2 include: Time-limited Wi-Fi, Global Link and Dream World events: keep an eye on Bulbanews' events listing. For example, you can currently download the Red/Blue starters if you have a ...

The primary threat to this team looks like it would be something with automatic Hail or Sandstorm - any major threat with Sand Stream (Tyranitar or Hippowdon) or Snow Warning (Abomasnow) will wreck the gimmick entirely, as Shedinja has precisely one HP, Wonder Guard doesn't block Weather damage, and Focus Sash will not activate against Weather damage either. ...

Not really... The only trainers (in the main series) you do encounter with shiny Pokemon are in Trainer Tower from Fire Red and Leaf Green (Gen 3). In the Single Battle mode, the seventh Trainer has a shiny Meowth. In Double Battle mode, the first trainer pair will have a shiny Espeon. In the Knockout mode, the fourth trainer will have a shiny Seaking. ...

You'll have to use the Poké Transfer on Route 15 to transfer one from a previous Generation IV game (e.g., HeartGold, SoulSilver). Otherwise, you'll just need to find someone to trade with. There was a Mudkip offered as a promo for the Japanese B/W version, but that has since been unavailable.

Unfortunately, there is no way to filter your searches by what the other player is requesting. You can only use filters to limit the Pokemon you see that other people are offering. The fake trades requesting impossible Pokemon is one of the biggest issues that the GTS has had, and it's unlikely to be fixed (at least not in the current 4th and 5th gen games ...
