    you can look at it online, or, if you look at the stats, the hindered one will be slightly blue while the beneficial one will be red(only for HGSS and gen 5).

    ok, I've known about that but is the beneficial/neutral/hindering list for the pokemon on serebii as a line or is it listed as a "do your homework and find out" type of thing?

    I'm not sure if Serebii has one, but Smogon does. http://www.smogon.com/bw/natures/

    i think i confused you guys by being confused myself >.> but i think i figured it out.

    at the bottom of each individual pokemon page, they list the stats by Hindering nature, Neutral nature, and Beneficial nature. Hp is constant and then the rest are adjusted going by nature changes. But it doesn't say which nature does what, it just lists the stat according to the bonus or cost of the general effect of the natures.

    That is my theory at least.

    Is it possible to find 2 shinies in one encounter while walking in double grass?

    I was under the impresion that the two dragons couldn't be shiny because of a glitch or oversight by the game makers, so I assumed it would be fixed in B/W 2. What I hadn't realized was that..

    ..this was the case. As far as I was aware, Zekrom, Reshiram & Victini are the only pokemon you can catch that can't be shiny (what other ones are there?). So, now I'm left wondering why they wouldn't allow those 3 to be shiny. I'm guessing it has something to do with the story in the movie/show, but I have no idea.

    Celebi and Arceus can't be legally shiny as well.

    My understanding is that Celebi can be shiny when obtained from the japanese Pokemon Colloseum bonus disc. Also, is Arceus actually locked as un-shiny? Like if you hacked the Azure Flute, then attempted to catch it, could it be shiny?

    IIRC, someone once said on the B2W2 forum that it's because they wanted the dragons to be always the same color as in the cutscenes. Not sure about Victini.

    That was disproved by the RNG Researchers at Smogon who looked into the game's coding and found that the bonus disc skipped shiny spreads.

    Like I said, not legally.

    Is the same true for the Jirachi from the bonus disc?

    Hey, I just got a thing with a salac berry off the GTS.

    Are they actually legal in 5th gen yet? I haven't been keeping up.

    Salac Berries can be bought from the florist on Join Avenue in BW2. I'm not sure if they've been released via other methods.

    Default Zoroark Frozen Bug fixed YET?

    Hey guys, something REALLY important just popped into my head.

    Is the Zoroark Frozen Bug fixed in the international versions of B2W2 or not?

    Hmmm...that would be weird, if it was true. For stationary legendaries, they don't change the color during the game, only when you're in battle with it. I'd've thought they'd follow the same philosophy for B/W cutscenes.
    Quote Originally Posted by scraftyscrafty View Post

    That's not really I'm wondering. In the coding of the game, like you mentioned in the first part of your post, would Arceus be allowed to be shiny? Like if the flute had been released, would the coding allow a shiny Arceus to be caught?

    It'd be such a slap in the face to the gamer, I didn't know if they'd prevent it from happening. It'd be like, 'hey look here's 2 shiny pokemon, but you have to knock one out. HAHAHA!!!'

    Anyway, when encountering 2 pokemon in doubles grass, is the change of one of them being shiny effectively doubled?

    Iirc, yes. Just like how Newmoon Darkrai and Flower Paradise Shaymin can be shiny too.

    Even if the flute is just hacked in, the Arceus should be able to shine. There's no shiny lock for it.

    That actually happened to someone in the shiny thread. No, not me

    I know that each Pokemon's shiny chance is calculated separately, but I'm bad at math, so I'm not sure about the exact amount, but I'm sure it is certainly isn't doubled.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 1~
    ~Shiny Banner 2~
    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    If I were to trade a Japanese Not Fully Evolved Pokemon to an English game and evolve it, will it keep the Japanese name or will it become English?

    It'll become English/ localise according to your game's language, unless the Poké is already NNed in Japanese.

    Why the hell is there not ONE site on earth that can answer this simple question????

    In black/white 2, can you connect and trade pokemon with B/W before beating the game?

    If the two games fall under the same generation, it is possible. But if it was with something like DPPt or HGSS, nope.

    So yes for your situation.

    You can evolve your pokemon at any time. There's no effect in evolving pokemon while competitively training it aside from that fact that it's stats grow significantly afterwards.

    Hope that helped.
