    I have a question that can hopefully be answered in time as I am training it now, but is there a higher leveled trainer in the game that would be good for training my Ninjask on?
    It is nearly done, at Lv. 88, but everything worth battling that I come across seems to resist it's only attack - Bug Bite :P
    I was going to try fighting the Cacturne on route 228, but they keep getting me with Sucker Punch..
    So yeah, are there any good trainers for a bug to battle, like those that have an abundance of Psychic or Dark Pokémon? :O
    (outside of the Elite 4)
    Id suggest finding a trainer that has Chansey or Blissey- Im not sure exactly if there is one (check gamefaqs- i think they have a complete guide that you can Ctrl+F search for it) and from my experience they give you bar none the most non-boosted exp. in game. If you have a Lucky Egg or your Ninjask is traded you can stack that onto the massive gain. Again I am unsure if you can find them on trainers in game.

    You can find HM04 in the Ghost Pokemon Tower just barely south of Solaceon Town, which is the town with the breeding center. You must traverse to the top of the tower and speak with both of the old ladies at the peak floor of the tower, which they reward you with the HM04 and some sort of incense.

    Its decent although in OU play TPunch is better. Ice Punch gives Meta a good shot at taking out some Ground types(barring Hippowdon and a few others that have solid HP and Def) and is a good suprise for anyone who throws Dragons out to take out your Meta with a Quake, although Meta is generally going to have to take a Quake without some agility play in there.

    Only Bug Bite? You can try a trainer in the end of route 215 (Rainy area, the first female trainer you see if you go through Veilstone.) She uses a Lv 60 Alakazam (and a Lv 60 Purugly - who can Fake Out). But outside these, I'm not sure.

    Mirror Coat and Counter damage are both based on the numbers the opponent decreased in Pokémon's HP directly. The Pokémon loses no HP because of Sub, no Mirror Coat/Counter damage ;D
    The same applies for Life Orb and Focus Punch.

    Life Orb boosts your attack and S.atk per 30% and deals 10% damage to yourself if the opponent's Pokémon lost HP. So if you attacked a Sub, the opponent's Pokémon loses no HP, which means, Life Orb won't do the 10% recoil.
    the case of Focus Punch is similar. Pokémon won't use Focus Punch if it loses 1 or more HP directly. in a sub, this can't happen, so no HP loss means Focus Punch in opponent's face!

    IIRC, all plates and power-up items (apart from the choice items) boost up the power by 10%.

    Forget what Aaraeus said, Plates raise 20%. ;D

    Power Band raises physical moves by 10%.
    Wise Glasses raises special moves by 10%.
    Plates and the specific items (like Charcoal, NeverMeltIce, Mystic Water) raises moves of specific type by 20%.
    Life Orb raises Attack and Special attack by 30% (in exchange to 10% of your health each turn you do damage to opponent).
    Choice Band raises attack by 50% in exchange to lock you into one move.
    Choice Specs raises S.attack by 50% in exchange to lock you into one move.
    .... same for Choice Scarf....

    That's all I can think of.

    Yup! Poison can be easly negated by Rest, which Snorlax uses very well, so getting important resistences IS important.

    you can change your swarm by doing this-

    Talk to the girl (anytime of the day).
    The swarm isnt to your liking? Save. Turn off DS.
    Set your DS clock to 23:59 (11:59 PM).
    Start it up as fast as you can- wait until the clock hits 00:00 or(12:00AM)
    Talk to the girl.
    Still not the swarm you want? Repeat steps.

    You did make it seem a little like Choice Scarf raises Sp.atk.....
    and you got promoted because now the Help Thread No.1 was closed and not deleted.Just a little hint.You probably knew that already.

    Anyway,my question.Would it be like a "neutral" nature if my pokemon had bad Iv's in one stat but the same stat was boosted by a nature?Because someone said that having bad Iv's is having a -nature in that stat.

    I wrote that O.o So, yup, I knew =p

    Taking Salamence as example...
    It's highest speed stat is 299, with 31 IV, 0 Nature (or Neutral nature) and 252 EVs.
    Highest speed with -Nature and the same conditions is 269.

    Now Highest speed with 0IV, 0 Nature and 252 EVs is 267, which is worst than negative nature.

    So in most cases, they are right.

    Kay. So, how do we know when we've done enough EV training for a Pokemon? To do it for 99 levels would be redundant, right?

    Is there a way to tell when a Pokemon's stats have maxed out from EV training?

    510 EVs is the max. If you go to Sunyshore Market (not Pokémart but the one with the Seals) someone there will give the 'mon in the top slot of your party an Effort Ribbon if its EVs are maxed.

    You must keep track of the EVs to know when the Pokémon has full EVs in a specific stat.

    ... or the most pratic way (the one I use) is counting PPs while battling always with the same Pokémon (and also considering it always OHKOs). Let's say you gave the Pokémon 100 EVs from vitamins and everytime you beat Magikarp you get 5 EVs, so to reach 255 EVs you'll need to battle with 31 Magikarps, so losing 31 PPs of a move (or losing 15 PPs twice + 1 battle, wich means two visits to Pokémon Center).

    Excluding counting, there're no ways to tell how many EVs a Pokémon has.

    When you reach the full amount of EVs (510) a woman in Seal Market will give the Pokémon a Effort Ribbon.

    In Diamond or Pearl Gamefreak also included a handy little device, I think most of you have heard of it, called the Poke'tch. There are several apps on there that can help you keep track of EVs other than the pen and paper method and methods mentioned above by Volteon. I personally prefer the Counter app (has a plus button on it) and the Sketch Pad app, although the Sketch Pad resets when you switch apps and that could mess people up- but the Counter is great.

    Well, PPs aren't erased when you turn off the game. (and you don't need to tap the screen 60 times after a battle versus the Magikarp guy)
    So I prefer the PP count method.

    But obviously, everyone can choose what to do. There're several ways to keep track of EVs.

    If you are in the middle of chaining a Swarm Pokémon when the the time hits 24:00, then your chain will not break, and you can continue with it as normal.
    But, if your chain breaks after the day has passed over to the next, then the Swarm Pokémon will have changed.

    How often/long does it take to get a hatched shiny from the breeding center? I've been breeding for months now (no SR) and have not gotten one hatched shiny.

    Also, the everstone on the female pokemon will give a 50% chance of passing on the nature right? Then can someone explain to me why 80% of all the ones I've hatched so far do not have the same nature?
