    Default The Pokemon Questions Thread Again!

    ** The Pokemon Questions Thread! **







    If you have a question about Pokemon, bring it here!
    Really, any questions at all - if you're looking for a quick answer, this is the place. Do not make a thread for a single question.



    Examples of the sort of single-question threads we've had in the past that fit under this one:

    "What in the world are EVs and IVs and how do they work?"

    "Why does Farfetch'd have that leek?"

    "Why is X type weak to Y type?"

    "How long are Pokemon games kept in production?"

    "Is the Bicycle stored in the backpack?"

    "What do they eat in the Pokemon world?"

    "How does Cubone get the skull it wears?"

    "Why don't they make games with multiple save files?"


    ... and many more ...



    There was a bit of a lag-induced mix up with the old Pokemon Questions thread and the Closed Thread Container, so here's a fresh start. Sorry for any confusion! We're still trying to cut down on the misplaced/spam/simple question threads this section sees every few hours. If you're wondering something about any aspect of Pokemon, and all you need is an answer, post in this thread. To that end, this thread (as is this whole section) is still not for game-related help questions! Check the General Pokemon Discussion section rules for links to all the proper threads and sections for game help and ideas.

    As far as I've experienced, a Pokemon will keep the newer Ability when it evolves. In your example, for instance, a Guts Tyrogue will evolve into a Limber Hitmonlee, while a Steadfast Tyrogue will evolve into a Reckless Hitmonlee.

    Diglett, being a pure Ground type, is weak to the Grass, Water, and Ice types.

    Two questions about Ditto :P

    Why can't a Ditto Breed with a Ditto?

    And when a shiny ditto transforms does it transform into the shiny version of the pokemon???

    Safari Ball has a catch multiplier of 1.5. That's the same as a Great Ball, I believe.

    And when a shiny ditto transforms does it transform into the shiny version of the pokemon???
    It'll transform into whatever the opponent is. So a shiny foe will result in your Ditto transforming into a shiny Pokemon, even if it isn't shiny, while if the other Pokemon is normal, then even the transformed Pokemon is normal.

    Sport Balls also have a 1.5x catch rate. And yes they do suck.

    Ditto cannot breed with Ditto because they are both genderless.

    They are able to breed with other genderless pokemon solely because Game Freak lets them to it.

    They both have a1.5 catch rate and that is the same as a Great ball, However it would have been very easy to catch the rare pokemon in the safari zone with a ultra ball, the Bug catching is easy already.

    Well my theory is that Ditto's DNA isn't comlet on it's own and need to copy another ones to attack so the same goes for breeding. It might be seen as a little strange because it wouldn't have the abillity to pass down it's genes, but then again Ditto might have the abillity to copy only a part of the mate's DNA so it can mix it with it's own and the have some of it's genes passed down. Like the IV's and Nature, cn be seen as genes Ditto can pass down.

    So the theory is about that Ditto isn't complete and needs another pokemon's DNA to breed.

    Or you can just go with the "pokemon doesn't make sense" answer.

    I have a question about a Pokemon accessory. It was called the PokeMate accessory. It was only released in Japan I believe, but I'm wondering, why wasn't it released outside of Japan? And has it been discontinued in Japan or is it still in service?

    And also, I've a second question about those pesky Quick Balls. How often does the "speed effect" last? I've heard it only works if you toss the ball on the same turn you meet the Pokemon but then I've also heard it lasts a few turns then weakens after the fourth. Any help is appreciated.

    The Quick Ball has a catch rate of 4 on the first turn and 1 on any turn after that.

    As for the Pokemate accessory, I did a bit of google searching, and it appears someone made a thread a few months earlier asking about this, and the response given is pretty good as to why it probably wasn't released outside of Japan.

    You can get some Pokemon with special moves, catch Torchics(wild starters), and get rare(ish) items.

    Why did they have to take Ludicolo out of the anime?

    *shrugs* Perhaps because it was only there to serve as advertisment for the Third Generation, and, when fourth started, it became...eh....'obsolete'. Just my guess, though. I mean, you may as well ask why Ash doesn't carry Bulbasaur around with him. (I mean no offence, of course.)


    Now, I asked this last night on the old Questions Thread, but then my computer died (it does that a lot) so I didn't get to see the answer, so here we go again:

    "I know that I could trade between XD and the Third Gen games, if I were to have a Game Boy Player attached to the bottom of the GameCube, but what of the original Colosseum?"

    I axed this in the old Pokemon questions thread, but it wasn't answered.
    "What is Bashamo? I find that name on all the old, old speculations from 3rd generation. I think it might have been Blaziken's original Japanese name, but that's Bursayamo, so what is Bashamo?"

    Why is it when you hatch an egg from level 1. and you use a rare candy on it, it's stats are sometimes increased by 0 or 2? Since it's never battled, shouldn't all it's stats only get +1?

    Thanks, but why is it if I Google Bashamo I only get some random crap, and if I Google Bursyamo I find a Bulbapedia page...
    Ah forget it.

    Unless you're looking for some extravagant theory the likes of which Endless posted, it's because Game Freak said so :P

    And because you can't replicate into a different gendered version of yourself.

    Apart from the fact that it's awesome to be "playing" Pokemon while walking, it has a lot of exclusive Pokemon (like Carvanha), event-only Pokemon like the Flying Pikachu, and items which you can get only one of in the games.

    It's not been taken out per se (like the Porygon line), but they can't show every Pokemon, can they?

    The stat increase depends on a Pokemon's base stats, EVs, IVs, nature, etc. It isn't set as +1 or +2 or anything.

    First post brought this question back into my mind.

    Why the hell is Flying super effective against Grass? It may be just me, but I don't quite get the logic there...
