    I'm pretty sure that Pass Power that you get from the Funfest Missions increases the chances of finding a Pokémon. (:

    There's someone in the game that asks you if you have Mulch, I believe he gives you something in return. Unfortunately I completely forget who it was and where I spoke to him.. Ask around, I'm sure someone knows what I'm talking about.

    Today certainly was a wonderful day for me, as I managed to get a female Skill Link Minccino, Technician Breloom, and an Imposter Ditto.

    That just leaves Mienfoo and Bagon as my other wanted Pokemon.

    Nope. You could try saving, then running 256 steps, and checking the hollow to see what you get, and keep repeatedly doing that, but it's not particularly efficient.

    It's just too bad that an item that was previously actually useful for something other than resell became an item whose only use is resell due to the nature of the game. :/

    At least you get more than you normally would... at the cost of selling the mulch one bag at a time...

    Yeah, that's true.

    At least they did something with the mulch, but I would've preferred it if we could transfer the mulch to the Dream World or something to grow berries more efficiently or something like that. :/

    Unless the Mulch has some use in the near future....

    Well that happened with the shards.
    No one wants them in B/W, so people questioned why they are available in Black City/White Forest. Then suddenly the tutors in B2/W2 requires shards




    Let's say R/S/E remake is confirmed. We all know R/S/E is the series that introduce berry trees. And guess what Mulches are for?

    The same goes for the colored Flutes. They're useless in B/W and B2/W2, but we all know R/S/E is the series that introduce them, there's the possibility that they will actually have their old effect back only in the R/S/E remake......

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~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.

    Wait... I haven't actually tried but the Flutes lost their effect in BW/BW2?

    EDIT: Nevermind. It did lose its effect. Guess I'll sell it then.

I also have a Dunsparce but I've decided not to use it(Rattled doesn't seems like it would be that useful for Dunsparce). I found an Absol, a few Liepard, a few Foongus and Amoonguss, Watchog, Bibarel, Sneasel, Combee. I think a Golduck, Medicham, and Seviper, maybe others.

    Also found a bunch of items, of course, Mulches are the most common I find. I've found a Shard or two though, I think at less one Evolution Stone, Mushrooms, Poke Balls, Repel.

    I want to get:
    Nidoran♀
    Nidoran♂
    Manectric
    Venonat
    Woobat
    Cubchoo
    Muk
    Garbodor
    Drifloon
    Kingler
    Dragonite
    Mienfoo
    Gligar
    Breloom
    Bagon
    Poliwhirl
    Ditto
    Vulpix
    Pinsir
    Heracross

    Not 100% certain on them all though, and I may end up getting some that I didn't list.
    Got Manectric a couple of days ago. Almost done...D:

    In BW, were the shards sold because there was no use for them, or was selling them to a specific person their actual use?

    It's different with the mulches in BW2 in that the use of the mulches is to be sold (much like Nuggets and Star Pieces), whereas the Shards in BW literally had no use (from how you've described them, anyway).

    So that is why it did not work when I tried to use them...

    There's literally no use for shards in B/W, not even a single NPC buys them for higher price like what happened with the Flutes.

    although iirc the only way you could get them in the first place in BW was buying them at outrageously expensive prices in Black City.

    I had a couple great finds last night/this morning. I usually run to each grotto before heading to bed. Within Pinwheel Forest I found Murkrow (though I forgot to save before catching, so it has a poor nature). On Route 23 I found an Absol. It was female, so I plan to breed her. In Giant Chasm I also encountered a Pokemon I never did before (no...not Ditto): a Metang. I was happy to capture it, even though I already have a Beldum from Dream Radar.

    even though Light Metal Metagross is about as useful as having no ability?

    I'd consider today to be a good Grotto day, got Bagon, Ditto, and Heracross(On White 2 so it's 0.25%). So now all I want are:

    Nidoran♀
    Nidoran♂
    Venonat
    Woobat
    Cubchoo
    Muk
    Garbodor
    Drifloon
    Kingler
    Dragonite
    Mienfoo
    Gligar
    Breloom
    Poliwhirl
    Vulpix
    Pinsir

    Getting the three I did makes it feel not so difficult anymore, still annoying having to restart for a good Nature though, I got lucky though, only took a few resets this time.
