    I don't know if this has always been the case with egg moves but I've never bred for moves before.

    I've been wanting a Chansey with Seismic Toss for a while and read that it wasn't possible to get it in B/W and I read on Serebii that Chansey could get it this generation but there wasn't any other mon that could breed with it yet and I'd have to wait for the bank to open. I thought I'd do some experiments though and I bred Seismic Toss onto a Mawile from Mankey as they are both in the "Field" egg group. I then bred a male Mawile with Seismic Toss with a Chansey and I was pleased to see that Chansey gained Seismic Toss. I could also then breed them Chanseys with my high IV Dittos to get an Impish Chansey with Seismic Toss and 31/x/31/x/31/31 IVs which I'm very pleased with.

    I didn't know I could transfer an egg move from one to another through a third party that crosses both egg types. So I was really pleased with this and thought I'd tell people in case they didn't know that either.

    This is a system that has been in place forever, you're not doing anything special, really. A Pokemon doesn't need to breed with a Pokemon that learns a move normally to gain it, the male parent just needs to know the move.

    Something that I've noticed,

    Even if you catch a Pokemon with a ball other than a Pokeball, the pokeball opening animation is all the same.

    However, when you switch pokemon during battle and they have a different pokeball, the different effect shows.

    Anyone else notice this?

    Has anyone confirmed whether it is possible to change your Friend Safari? I've tried asking Google, but haven't gotten anything definitive. Some sites say that hard resetting your console will change your friend code and your friend safari, but I found one site where a guy claimed that he's hard reset multiple times and gotten the same Friend Safari. One site claimed that anything that changes your friend code will change your Friend Safari.

    Personally, I think it'd be cool if everybody's Friend Safari changed every month, that way people with crappy Friend Safaris actually have a chance to get something good and the people with Ditto friend safaris can get a break and not be constantly hounded with friend requests.

    Yeah, at the very least I was hoping that Friend Safaris were going to also be integrated with StreetPass, since it's getting to the point where people aren't exchanging friend codes to interact online but to merely catch Pokémon in other Safaris.

    The only way to change your Friend Safari is to get a new Friend Code, the only was to do that is to factory reset your 3DS, or get a new one.

    I was trying to breed male swinub to have icicle crash using a swinub and beartic. I saved before giving the daycare the pokemon. After I gave them the pokemon and hatched the first egg they gave me, I'd SR'd because it was always female. I started to get annoyed because it kept constantly being female. I decided to check the stats, and it always turned out oblivious, mild, takes plenty of siestas, and the IV checker said it was decent overall with 31 IV HP but low defense. So, I'm guessing they're using the same breeding mechanics from B2/W2 that made egg RNGing irrelevant since the first egg never changes. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Yes, it's been confirmed the first Egg is always the same.

    Hopefully this thread is the right place to ask this: Is there a way to communicate during player-to-player wi-fi trading? I've had multiple people initiate a trade, yet for some every time I show them a pokemon to offer, they just copy me by offering me the same pokemon. Other times they offer a Pokemon I already have or am not interested in, and after five minutes it's still sitting there. Is there some sort of agreed upon way to predict when the other person may not be interested in a specific Pokemon so we don't have to play the guessing game? I'm not trying to be picky, but sometimes I just don't need another Pidgey :|

    Has anyone else here noticed a delay before the battle menu pops up after the pokemon has been released from the ball??

    Its about 1-2 secs … Could this be because of the increase in affection from Pokemon Amie? Didn't have this problem before.

    It is because of Amie.

    The game waits until your Pokemon is finished fidgeting around or looking at you before the menu appears.

    From what I heard, that was a programming error in B2/W2. So they turned it into a game mechanic in X/Y? That seems strange.

    I'm guessing they heard that it prevents RNG abuse, so they decided to keep it as a feature. Because let's just face it, it's not fair for those who didn't do RNG abuse.

    The fact that they make IV passing and getting flawless IVs much easier in this Gen also suggest that they're trying to discourage RNG abuse.

    So yeah, just like what your sig says, it seems that they indeed dislike RNG abuse.



    That's just my guess, though

    When people show the same pokemon they trying to say they HAVE that pokemon alredy. when it stays there a long time is because they accidentially pressed offer, and then if you dont input offer too he gets stuck and cant get out until you go offer and cancel. I actually have a lot of pidgeys with names like "have dat one" "trade back" etc

    I have a question concerning Critical Hits. If I have an Absol with the ability Super Luck, and give in a Scope Lens and it uses a move with a high Critical Hit chance ( Night Slash, Psycho Cut or Shadow Claw) Will It be a 100% guaranteed Critical hit as of X and Y? I am going off what was posted on the main site this morning.
    Thanks

    It'll indeed always crit.

    It's a pity there's so few Pokemon that can actually get guaranteed crits without needing to use Focus Energy first, though.

    don't know if this is the right place to put this but I was wondering what happens if we catch every pokemon that are 718 or 721? do we get the shiny charm? I was just watching pokemon origins and thought it would be a nice sidequest to do after you beat the game. get all the pokemon and get a reward after you finish it.

    Oval Charm is the prize for completing all three Kalos Dexes so that is the likeliest case, though most likely the event Pokémon will be excluded from the completion like in the previous generations.

    Hey guys, I am not sure if this has been answered before, but I can't seem to find it using the search tool, but..

    Has the formula for hidden power type been solved? I will be breeding pokemon with the correct IV for certain type of hidden power, but I am not sure what IV I should aim for.
    If anyone has any clues about the hidden power formula, I would appreciate any guidance!!

    EDIT: After reading some discussion, it seems like HP typing formula didn't change from Gen V and there is no HP fairy (aww but I want it )

    Alright, starting to make a good Ursaring for me to use.
    Thinking of the moveset of play rough, crunch, close combat, and facade.
    Which nature would be more beneficial for me to have on it: Jolly or Adamant?
