    Yes, correct. It will remain without EV's, just keep in mind they will keep deleting it's moves as it levels.
    Oh ok. Thanks! That's definitely a relief.

    There is no "standard" MixApe, so it depends on the nuances of your particular set. Infernape in general appreciates dual screen support though, so that should work in all cases.

    I have a Ditto with flawless IVs in everything, and a female Surskit I just bred with flawless IVs in HP, Defense and Speed. I'm trying to get a male Surskit with those same IV so I can breed it with a female DW Gligar so I can get a good Poison Heal Gliscor. I know Power items will guarantee one IV gets passed down, but is there any way I can guarantee more than one? I know giving both parents different Power items doesn't work, but is there anything besides that I can do?

    I just tend to see what can MixApe support. As Chaos said, there is no "standard" MixApe since MixApe is generally formed based on what your team needs.

    Well, if you give its moveset and its item plus your team and then we can see how it'll need support.

    Nope, there's no other way to pass them on. like that. Since the Pokemon already has the IVs though they are more likely to be passed onto their babies. There's my method which is random egg hatching, but your odds are greatly increased so that's a plus. Then there's RNG which is complicated...

    Actually, giving both parents Power Items does work. I can't even guess at how many hours i spent breeding, and i always gave both parents power items and almost always got the stats i used the power items for and one other stat that both parents might've had.

    I've been reading a lot about illegal movesets lately. First off, why are they illegal? I know certain combinations of moves are impossible, so they are illegal (like fire punch larvitar with its DW ability), but I looked over the salamence POTW and it said that moxie + outrage was illegal. Why? Is it just because it's too awesome? Also, if there is somewhere, either on these forums or somewhere else that has all the illegal combinations that would help and be easier for everyone.

    When a moveset is illegal it means that it has some sort of moves the Pokemon can't lear mostly because they are moves you can only have if you taught them via tutor or TM in 4th gen and then migrated that pokemon, and about the POTW Moxie is illegal with Outrage and Dragon Dance at the same time, you can only have one of the 2 moves with Moxie but not both

    Can someone explain how Foul Play works? It's not like Punishment because this move actually has a Base Power of 95 which confuses me...

    It's a 95 base power attack calculated using the opponent's attack stat as opposed to yours.

    from what I understand flying in psychics are both bad types for competitive battle so what am I supposed to do about fighting types?

    ^That is by no means true! Alakazam is a great Psychich type, as is Celebi. Staraptor is a pretty decent Flying Type, as is Zapdos.

    Glicor, Dragonite, Tornadus, Alakazam, Reuniclus, Jirachi, Celebi, Latios, Latias, Zapdos, Slowbro and Skarmory they can wall/thread/counter/check or KO Fighting types and are Competitively viable

    What tier(s) are Vulpix and Hippopotas in?
    Yep we should ban baton pass, and weather too. Oh and Trick Room, I'm tired of having to worry about Trick Room all the time. Just ban the move Trick Room, and prankster, it's broken. Ban all status moves on prankster users, they're too cheap. Oh and ban Probopass to it's so cheap. Just ban everything except Magikarp with splash.
    Well, actually Blaziken isn't really Uber because some people whined about how they were getting owned by it. I mean, it doesn't stand a chance in the Uber enviroment.

    So if I can understand this correctly.... It uses the opponent's attack and their Defense? That's pretty amazing.

    Could Vulpix be used in RU then? I'm sure it can, but I want clarification.

    Vulpix, I believe, isn't banned, but Drought is, so effectively, you can't use Drought Vulpix, but Flash Fire Vulpix is okay.

    Also, on a side note, Droughts Vulpix is also completely legal, too.

    I use a Chlorophyll Sawsbuck on my Sun Team, and right now he's a Jolly nature. I feel that sometimes he's a little underpowered. Will Adamant nature fix that problem at all? I want to know before I go off and get myself a new Sawsbuck and train it...AGAIN...I know I could just give my current one a Choice Band but I don't like being locked into one move.

    It's fast (fairly, at least) so Adamant would be fine in the sun.

    With Adamant max speed EVs and chlorophyll it is still really fast.
    Btw, it can learn Swords Dance, so you could keep Jolly.
