    It used to be (Generation I-III) that certain types each fell under either Special Attack/Defence or Attack/Defence. Special types were: Water, Grass, Fire, Ice, Electric, Psychic, Dragon and Dark. Any move use with one of those types used Special Attack to calculate power and Special Defence to calculate, well, defence. In Generation I it was more primitive in that there was only a Special stat, which covered both offence and defence. Since Generation IV, however, each move is considered either Physical, Special or Other. Physical moves rely on Attack and Defence, Special moves rely on either Special Attack or Special Defence and Other moves are your buffs/debuffs etc. In the summary page for moves it will show you an icon to denote what type of attack that move is. Generally though, anything that would make contact with an opponent (Tackle, Scratch, etc.) is a Physical attack.

    In older games, all the types were classified to be either under Attack and Defense stats or under Sp. Attack and Sp. Defence. For example, Grass type was Sp. At/Sp. Df and Ground type At/Df. So Sp.At affected all the Grass type attacks and Attack stat had nothing to do with it. But in 4th Gen they changed the system so each attack is now classified by itself and not by its type. There's symbols which determine which type attack is. The red symbol with star-like shape means Attack and somewhat purple symbol with eye-like pattern is for Special Attack. It determines which stat is used for attack. For example, Flamethrower is Special Attack so higher Sp.At is favorable and Attack is not needed. And you need Defence to defense yourself against Attack-stat attacks and Sp.Defence for Sp.Attack-stat attacks.

    Sorry if this explanation was too complex! English is not my native language and all of this probably made more sense in my head than in this answer ^^'

    EDIT// Oh, someone had posted answer sooner than I! We must have wroted this at the same time. Oh well, now you can read it twice.

    Hey, guys, TheGreaterLucario here. I JUST restarted my HeartGold (for the umm-teenth time) and am trying to SR for a Shiny Totodile. However, I began to wonder:
    When SRing for a Shiny starter, do you save in front of the three pokeballs and THEN do the resetting or do you have to start the game completely anew each reset (name your trainer, that stuff)?

    You can save in front of the pokeballs

    Would Soul Silver or Heart Gold still work on 3DS then?

    All DS games work on 3DS and region code doesn't affect when playing DS games with 3DS. For example, if you have a DS game from Japan and US 3DS, the game will work just fine. You can also use wireless communications while playing the game on 3DS but just to remember to put Wireless on.

    For in-game, Oddish or Bellsprout?

    I don't recall ever using these 2.

    Oddish definitely. IMO Victreebel is too squishy for a grass type, and with Oddish you can turn it into a special attacker or wall.

    I was actually leaning towards Oddish. I'm at a place where I can capture one, I'd have to go back to get Bellsprout.

    I think I'll evolve it into Vileplume. Now I just need to find a Leaf Stone for later...

    If I train my Nidorina to level 43 to learn Crunch, can I use the Moon Stone right after to evolve into a Nidoqueen and would it still be able to learn Super Power at level 43?

    Or do I have to choose between 1 of the 2 attacks?

    You can learn both Crunch AND Super Power. I think you miss read the lists, as Nidoqueen learns Superpower at Lv58. Nidoqueen learns Earth Power at level 43.

    If you want Earth Power you can visit the Move relearner in Blackthorn City, and he will teach your Pokémon in exchange of a Heart Scale.

    Bought a 3DS today and was hoping to get WiFi set uo so I can start training, but this comes up...

    "No access point in range. Move within range. For help, visit nintendo support"

    Does anyone know how to solve this problem? This is frustrating. If it doesnt work then I'm going to get my money back.

    Did you look on the right side of it to make sure the light is blinking?

    There wasn't. There's only one light that's on & that's the blue one at the very bottom right.

    There should be a switch (like the on/off for the ds lite) on the right

    "Well I'm walking by the red light
    Gonna find me all that I'm owed
    And I know where I'm gonna be then
    When the red light's gonna shine on me"

    I went through settings > internet connections, but it's saying it won't connect

    Alright so. I went through settings, internet connections, I'm connected.

    But whenever I start up the game, to click on wifi settings, it says I'm not connected.

    So am I connected to trade yet?

    EDIT: Went to goldenrod global to attempt to trade and it says get in range... so idk what the problem is.

    Come on peeps. Much appreciated.

    If it says "not connected", you're probably not connected.... but honestly, I don't know much about the Wifi settings in HG/SS. Maybe you should post some screenshots of your problem? Honestly, it's not very clear what the issue is from what you've said.

    Also, try not to double-post. You'll get an infraction for it. If you need to say something else, you can edit your post with the "Edit" button in the bottom-right-hand corner of the post.

    Just be glad that I don't have mod powers here. But I think we had a few comments about that before.

    It sounds like you could have wifi switch off, but I'm not sure so I'm going to assume you've not set it up correctly. While the 3ds is not playing a DS game, There is a small switch similar to the DS-lites power switch, and a yellow light. If the Yellow light is off, Flick the switch. Remember that if the light is on, All Wireless communication and Wifi functions can be used when requested. If it's flashing your 3DS is communicating. If off all 3DS communication functions are disabled. Due the way 3DS works, you'll need to make sure that the light is on before Starting Soul Silver, as trying to flick the switch on in a DS game will not reactivate the Wifi.

    The 3ds has 6 "profiles" for Wifi communication. 3 of the profiles only work with the Most of the DS games which include Mario Kart DS, all of the 4th Gen Pokémon Games (which includes Soul Silver). To Access those settings do this: 3ds -> Settings -> Internet Settings -> Nintendo DS settings. You must have either an open Wifi network or a WEP encoded network to connect to. The other 3 profiles, which are found under the Blue button in Internet Settings, can only be used Via DSi Enabled games, which includes all of the 5th gen, and all 3DS games, and you can use Most Wifi networks.

    I guess this isn't really a question strictly related to HeartGold/SoulSilver, but I have soulsilver so i'll ask here are you able to trade/battle/etc with people all over the world via wi-fi connection? I was told you are able to I just don't know how it all works. I've never known anyone else to play it really so haven't had a chance to figure it out

    Yes. You need their friend code to meet up with them.
    Otherwise you can look for offers on the GTS or make your own offer.
    The trade section is also a good place to meet up
