    If a pokemon with Sheer Force uses a move with multiple chance effects, like fire fang,
    does the move get the power boost twice?

    Well, my question is if anyone knows a good setup for a Rash Zekrom. I was thinking mixed attacker, but that's generally as far as I can get.

    Also: Anyone find a 5th gen only breeding pair up like Skitty on wailord yet?

    Porygon 2 with an "Evolite" is EXTREMELY hard to kill without Poison or Close Combat.

    Scyther however still sucks because of Stealth Rocks and because he can't hurt Steels much.

    Does a Dream World Landorus's Hammer Arm lose its speed drop and gain power?

    No, it only works on drops the opponent uses (so in most cases it just makes you boosted by Intimidate)

    No, its speed drop is a primary effect while Sheer Force removes secondary effects. Hammer Arm gets no power boost.

    @BH I'm assuming that you thought Landos DW ability was Defiant/Competitive Spirit. Its actually Sheer Force/Encourage though thats understandable since the other two genie things get Defiant from DW.

    Speaking of Sheer Force, is Speed Priority affected?

    Does sheer force effect moves that up crit ratios, and have perfect acuracy like airial ace?

    ^
    No to both. Priority isn't affected and moves with crit ratios/perfect accuracy/etc are all primary effects. The ability boosts only moves with secondary effects which is almost always just a chance to Burn/Freeze/Paralyze/Flinch or something along those lines.

    Hi to all!
    I have a question. I would like to partecipate to the official championship and so I have to build a competitive team, so I have to find a good Ditto to breed good IV pokemons. So this is my question. If I get an hacked Ditto from another player and I breed a pokemon, let's say a Snivy from my Serperior, will my snivy legit or not?
    Hope someone can answer me

    I have two questions:

    1) What would be a good option for using a Naive Zekrom that is 'Alert to Sounds'? (As in, Special Attacker or Physical Attacker?)

    2) In Fusion Bolt's description it says that it is powered up when influenced by a flame. Does this mean that if Fusion Flare and it are used at the same time they will be powered up or am I misreading this?

    Naive Zekrom makes best use of a physical attacker with Draco meteor to lure in and KO Groudon. Something like Bolt Strike / Outrage / Draco Meteor / HP Fire is a reasonable mixed attacker. Depends on your team.

    Fusion Bolt doubles in power when used after Fusion Flare, and vice versa. So if Reshiram attacks with Flare, then Zekrom attacks with Bolt then Fusion Bolt will have 200 base power. This is only useful really for double battles since both dragons have STAB super effective moves to hit the others with.

    Shiny Accelgor Strategy

    I'm not asking anyone to rate my Accelgor, I need a strategy for it. Sorry if this is the wrong place, I'm stupid. I consider this a competitive question because... well... it's a competitive question.

    I was trying to track down Tornadus on my Pokemon Black when I accidentaly stepped in a patch of the wetlands. I rolled my eyes as the new wild battle music began and the screen started flashing, and I started button mashing A, as if it would make the scene go faster so my False Swipe Leavanny could run away.

    The scene opened up, and a Shelmet popped out. Of course, I'd already caught one in Iccirus City before, but then... I noticed something.

    It was shiny.

    After letting out an uncharacteristic girly scream, I used two False Swipes and threw an Ultra Ball - leaving me with my first Generation V Shiny.

    Excited, I ran back to the PC, switched to Box 8, and pressed Summary.

    Zippen
    Shelmet
    Male
    Careful Nature.

    Careful? DANG IT!!! I knew that Accelgor was a special sweeper Pokemon, and a Special Attack hindering nature would.... hinder it. Heck, the first Shelmet I caught, Sir Robin, is even modest...

    But I REALLY want to train a shiny Pokemon, instead of using it as breeding fodder like Generation IV's Shiny Sandslash.

    So... I need some help. Here's the details that I've gathered up so far...

    Zippen
    Shelmet@???
    Careful Nature
    Hydration
    (No EV's yet)
    I definitely need 4 moves...

    My idea: Rain wall
    I already caught a Poliwag :B.... No. I dislike perma weather, because to me, it seems like cheating. But Accelgor can most certainly set up a Rain Dance, and then spam rest when it's in trouble... which will be often, considering those crappy defensive stats. Maybe U-Turn and Return for attacking moves? That's really Accelgor's only physical options, and it probably wouldn't be wise to use Sp.A in this case.

    IV's. I tried going to Marriland, but their stat calculator changed, so... I couldn't figure it out. If someone could tell me where to find one, or I could just put them down now, and you could help me out by finding it, idk.

    Good Perseverance? It has good perseverance. Does that have anything to do with IV's?

    Shelmet
    lvl 30
    Hp 75
    Atk 32
    Def 64
    Sp.A 27
    Sp.D 55
    Spe 25

    Does shiny give it automatically good IV's? Because other than Special Attack, all of the stats are better than my other Shelmet.

    Can you tell I'm a n00b trainer?

    Believe me, any suggestions would be ever so appreciated. I want to use this little helmet soooo much, but... I'm not a very good strategizer.
    I'm allergic to Brelooms. Don't come near me with one, or my face will puff up.

    Don't be mad, be sad! You're less annoying that way.

    Question of the Century:
    Could Lugia beat Makuhita in a game of chess?

    I'm looking for any Bulbasaur, Charmander, Chikorita, Totodile, Torchic, or Mudkip. I'll trade any other starter for one.

    Not really sure about how to use the Shelmet, but I can answer your IV questions. Being shiny doesn't give a Pokemon automatically good IVs- the IVs are generated more or less randomly with shinies as with nonshinies.
    And yes, the characteristic "Good perseverance" has to do with IVs. Basically it means that the Shelmet's best stat IV-wise is Defense.
    And I went and calculated the IVs of your shiny Shelmet for you. Assuming it has no EVs, they go as follows:
    HP: 17 - 19
    Att: 10 - 13
    Def: 29
    SpA: 4 - 9
    SpD: 20 - 23
    Speed: 17 - 19
    So, not too bad except for that Special Attack.

    Hi, sorry if I'm putting this in the wrong place.

    Can Dream World Torchic be female, and thus have the possibility of having a Baton Pass + Speed Boost set?

    If it doesn't, what are the chances of this happening in future?

    On a side note: is Pre-Evo Stone Gligar viable in OU?

    Ferrothorn is the best one there is. Other than that, there's Jellicent, Blissey, Chansey for Special Walls; Glisor, Skarmory for Physical Walls.

    Which Water-ground type is best? Seismitoed, swampert or quagsire? I need something to cover my Volcorona and water-ground does that well.
