    That could be risky. The Pokemon would have to be bred in a 4th Gen game, brought upwards to BW/BW2, learn the move in BW2 as long as it's available in 4th Gen, and then trade it back to BW. It's almost more of a hassle than to just do it all in a 4th Gen game. :/

    Speaking of which, how do the tournament coordinators check whether or not a Pokémon is acceptable for VGC? Obviously, you could look at a Pokémon's stats, movesets, and trainer memo, but I mean for the more elusive stuff like valid abilities for ability slots and such.

    Mostly random hack checks. Some people do get lucky, and make it through the first few rounds without getting caught, but you can call someone over and call someone out if they're using something illegal. If you plan on doing well though, they do check more thoroughly, especially since most of those games go up on the big screen.

    Generally, do the staff members care if a person uses a Pokémon with legal stats and moves, and with legal ribbons and trainer memo, but with the wrong ability slot for their (legal) ability or something? Like, if a Pokémon that is otherwise completely legitimate had Flash Fire on the 0-slot and Battle Armor on the 1-slot, and the PID of that Pokémon has the 1-slot but it has Flash Fire instead?

    Yes. If they feel if there is something up, they will disqualify the person. It's a bit of an imperfect system, as they sometimes accuse completely legit Pokemon for being hacked (with like Abilities, places it was hatched, moves, etc) but they know what isn't legal.

    Ok. I have a Zapdos from 4th gen that I forgot to teach tailwind so I taught it to him on BW2. Do you think they'd catch that, or my metagross that was transfered over on 1/25/2000 by accident after the 4th gen RNG and my landorus that was RNG'd on 9/7/2013?

    I THINK that will be fine. I'm 100% not sure, but it should be fine. I mean, there is an adjustable clock. Although, to defuse any possible reasons for DQ, you might want to keep your clock's setting on present day in the future; if you plan on competing, you do not want these guys hounding you. The judges are pretty brutal.

    Yeah I understand. It wasn't me tho, the metagross was traded to me with that date, it was hack checked, and it IS a legit RNG. The date thing bothers me, so I'm thinking about getting a new metagross with ice punch in 4th gen by trading. Do you think it's worth it?

    Sure! Metagross is a pretty good Pokemon in VGC, and having Metagross be your Dragon counter would be amazing!

    Will look. (:

    Anyways, posted some news for Regionals!

    Apparently, participating in the Wi-Fi Tournaments (such as the Autumn Friendly) can get you a bye at Regionals if you do well. Certainly an interesting thing being included. Thoughts on this guys?

    I think it's great for Nintendo and Pokemon to do that.
    If they did that in 11 i would have made it to the double elimination rounds.
    I think it'll encourage more people to participate and less the opponent disconnected messages.
    BTW on a totally different matter,Arcanine didn't do so well. I switched to My XD Refresh Salamence. The look on their faces when they toxic/burn/paralysis it and i refresh is probably shock to priceless.XD

    Another thing. on WiFi I've been seeing less and less berries (chople,haban,kasib,ect.) being used.Lum and Sitrus are the only 2 i've seen on WiFi since mid August.
    I think it might effect some people's team building ideas. What do you guys think?

    Refresh Salamence. Wow. hahaha Now that's an idea I have not heard before, but it sounds pretty legit. It cures off Confusion as well, does it not?

    As for the berries, from what I've gathered, it's due to the fact that Swagger and overall health have become more important than specific attacks. Most Pokemon can be EV trained to take specific hits, otherwise, it's a better idea to switch out as opposed to just staying in. Speaking of staying in, that's another big reason. Switching has gotten much more popular this season. Instead of leaving your Tyranitar to take that SE Close Combat from Terrakion, why not just switch in your Cresselia? If it's Choiced, that Terrakion is screwed, and stuck with Close Combat. If not, Cress will be able to just KO with Psychic/Psyshock anyways. Why leave your Pokemon in to take a move it isn't likely to take well?

    EDIT: New teams were added to the RMT section! Give your fellow VGC players some help, and discuss team strategies amongst each other!

    Unfortunately, no it doesn't heal confusion. but if i spend my time working on my XD more, i can get a Heal Bell Dragonite, and heal bell heals ALL stat problems/conditions for it and ALL my other pokemon on my team during the battle.

    Yep, that is unfortunate. If only GF made a XD2....then multiscale, healbell dragonite or moxie, refresh sala. imaging what that would do to VGC.

    Hahaha! Right? Ugh. That would be crazy. Interesting possible premises for an XD2 though, what with the Dream World. The Special moves would be crazy if some key Pokemon got something cool too.

    Yes,that would be rather crazy.
    I remember reading a post somewhere about some guy/gal sent an email to Masuda about RSE remakes.The amazing thing was he/she actually got a reply back from Masuda, it said something along the lines of this-Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald are some of my favorite games in the Pokemon series, I'll take this remake thought into consideration.

    The amazing thing is he said he'd take it into consideration. Now not saying that 3rd gen remakes are gonna come out or anything like that, but how would along with those (if they come out) a XD2 came out?that would be interesting for the meta-game.

    And with that, the Autumn Friendly is officially over! Hopefully everyone got in some decent VGC Practice throughout the tourney; I know I did!

    Hopefully this is the correct place to ask, but does anyone know if there are going to be vgc regionals/nationals in the UK for 2013? I couldn't find any info online?

    I collect shiny latias', and will trade well for ut ones. looking for all the different natures, please pm me!

    Unhappy This is probably a lot to ask but I'm going for it.

    I really really want to put a Therian Landorus on my VGC 2013 team (provided Black 2 and White 2 are mandated) but I don't have a 3DS. I'm more than willing to hack/use AR to get the Reveal Glass, but does anyone know of an illicit way to get it that (probably) won't get me in trouble during a VGC hack check?

    Maybe someone here will know this answer rather than the Ask Questions thread:

    Question about the Indianapolis stuff which I guess is the national tournament:

    http://www.pokemon.com/us/play-pokem...championships/

    Will someone who hasn't qualified be able to compete as if it was one of the regional tournaments?

    Nope, hatching an egg from a shiny won't change the odds of the newborn being shiny either.

    Most people probably get shinies by taking advantage of the random number generator, which controls if you're pokemon is shiny, what nature it has, and what it's individual values(IVs) are.

    Pretty much, it take the luck out of finding these things. It does make it so if the shiny is worth anything as a shiny debatable, though.
