    Is it just me, or does anyone else find the swooping wild pokemon in Glittering Cave really annoying?
    Currently not playing any Pokemon Games, you can check my Backloggery for games that I AM playing, if you're interested:



    If I'm playing a Pokemon game, I'll have my signature display the game I'm playing, current team, and badge number.

    Okay, I have just encountered a critical capture, which means that they returned in X and Y

    I have a few things, not sure if they've been discussed or not before...

    Does tipping have any effect on anything? I heard rumor it increases your shiny encounter rate.

    I went back to Route 3 with a Pikachu at the head of my party and all I could find were Pikachu, until I moved him from the front of the party! His ability was Static, so maybe it attracts electric type Pokemon on the field?

    I was attempting to catch a Zubat - the first ball I threw at him, he popped right out. I threw another one directly after that. The ball only shook once and snapped shut... Is there a small chance that a pokeball can get an instant capture?

    That's been known since Emerald. It increases your chance of finding Electric Types.

    That's called a Critical Capture. They added that in Black and White. Its also not a guarantee, as I've had many break out.

    Found something interesting out just now. I was battling a Golett, and when I defeated it I got a message saying something like "You found a White Herb in the aftermath!" Lo and behold, I got a White Herb after the battle. Is it possible that you have a small chance of finding items after a wild battle?

    Yes, Gyarados is allowed. The main site lists everything that isn't.

    The day/night cycle doesn't matter in X/Y for encounter rates. In other words, you can catch them any time you want.

    Well, I just had a Garbodor hit my Mega Aerodactyl with Toxic while it was in midair during Fly. It was a Double Battle in the Lost Hotel with my Gogoat and M-Aero vs their Garbodor and Pangoro. I don't know how it happened, since it was on Turn 1. I reset the game and managed to repeat it twice as well. Any ideas?

    I am loving The WOnder Trade feature. You have to be patient and go through a lot of Bidoofs, Fletclings nad other common pokmone but if you do then you can get some great ones.. like that Dragon Gloomy or Goomy. I got one as early as Santlune City. Now I can raise it through my game instead of waiting to catch it and having to grind hard to bring it up to the levels of my other Pokemon. If you haven't ried the Wonder Trade let you should. It take a while but you will be reward at some point.

    1)Toxic can now affect Pokémon that used Fly like Sky Uppercut or Stone Edge.
    2)Toxic can affect any Pokémon in all or most semi-invulnerable states.
    3)Garbodor's secondary additional Hidden Ability is No Guard.

    Either one of those.

    I know it's not the second one since I couldn't get Toxic from any of my other Pokémon to hit. My first assumption was perfect accuracy for Toxic for either Poison types or Stench users, since it definitely didn't have Weak Armour.

    Random question: I've noticed that it seems like lots of people are finding shinies. Have the chances of finding a shiny increased or something?

    That's the general assumption, but we don't have any hard evidence that points towards that.

    That's why I keep telling people to turn that EXP Share off as soon as they get it.
    It's a straight up cheating device.
    It gives 71% Exp Boost if you use it with a full party and always one pokemon battling the enemy.

    If that was annoying for you, wait until you get to the Badlands. You'll go crazy.

    Please don't encourage people to be parasites.

    Don't put Pokemon into Wonder Trade that you wouldn't want to receive yourself*. Very simple rule of human interaction.

    *for crappyness/rarity reasons, not because you already have one

    Sounds like the Wonder Trade feature is going to go downhill FAST. Why would someone risk a rare pokemon when they will most likely get a crap pokemon in return? Of course it's an honor system style trade, but when there's no repercussions to being crappy, there's no reason the average person would respect it. Most people will avoid the system, including myself.

    Doubt it. Same thing happened when BW came out, everybody was yelling about it being lowered. It's just that there are tons of people playing and everybody is posting pictures because we don't know what the shinies look like.

    I'm sure you remember how bad things were in caves from some of the previous games?

    I reckon that any flying pokemon that have do not have a flying animation are not eligible for sky battles. I remember a group of Murkrow standing there when they attacked me.
