    Probably needs more testing though
    Can a transferred Pokemon remember Egg moves that were deleted (before or after transfer)?

    Because Celebi can't learn the one that's available.

    I have a question that doesn't seem to fit in anywhere...does anyone know what tipping people does? Because I have only sporadically been tipping NPCs.

    It doesn't seem to have any effect.

    It is just a rumor, spreading before the couple hackers were able to (I believe) determine that the shiny rate was in general increased.

    It is curious to me, because there are NPC's in places that you otherwise don't have to go...they'll play a song for example and ask to be tipped. Also it makes me wonder why they would give you 3-4 different tipping amounts for something that doesn't seem to mean anything. Is it possible this could be a GameFreak update later on? It seems so...unnecessary and feels different in that it doesn't get you an immediate benefit.

    Because that could possibly serve as a means of telling a truly Kalos native Pokemon from a shameless hack.
    IIRC, there are four additional slots for moves at hatching in the new file format that don't exist in the previous format so if the event moves are using the same slots(which I'm pretty sure they do) it should be impossible to trick Pokébank with them.

    Nope, it's just there for atmosphere and Video Game Caring Potential.

    I encountered shinies the first two times I tipped those characters every amount, and nothing since.

    There's also a medal on the PGL for tipping, that's it, though.

    Hello,

    I noticed on the Serebii.net's section for XY: New Breeding Mechanics that it mentions the PokeBall transfer. Would someone explain what happens when using Ditto?

    The Pokeball will only pass down if the Pokemon Ditto is breeding with is female.

    On an unrelated note, apparently, any Pokemon that's brought in with Pokebank will be stated as having "good memories it can't seem to remember" if brought to the memory checker. Meaning if you get a Pokemon that was supposedly hatched in Kalos but has that message, it means it's a hack. I'll laugh if they end up using this as a means of hack checking at this year's VGCs and the cheaters get mass DQ'd again.

    Funny ways to check for hacks aside, wow that has some horrifying philosophical implications. Like they get amnesia or something when they get transferred; no longer remembering the good times they had with their trainer(s) of the past...

    I'm guessing it might have been a mistranslation and is supposed to be "it cannot remember any good memories" (mainly because it has none, due to being hacked)

    Can't know for sure unless someone here has a Japanese game and a hacked Pokemon, though.

    Doesn't change the fact that GF could have let Celebi learn False Swipe, and use the space for an actual new move, instead of a mere copy of an old move with a new name.

    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.

    More reason to not transfer my trained Pokemon from past games.

    Read his post again.
    Any pokemon from Pokebank says that, not just hacks. He's saying that if you were to trick the game/exploit pokebank to give non-Kalos-native Pokemon the pentagon, the memory girl would catch it due to saying the same thing as always.

    By the way, I'm amazed this hasn't been pointed out before, but Sacred Sword got its PP reduced to 15 this generation. The pages for the musketeers, Aegislash and updated moves in general should be corrected.

    Not much with the breeding, but I was actually just about to mention the berry mutating. I really like how you can get these mutated berries, but I really wish they had gone just one step further with the Kee and Maranga berries. Both of them are mutations of berries that were originally event exclusive (or Mirage Island exclusive, for the Leichi berry, but I've never met anyone who ever actually went to Mirage Island), and which are now mutations as well. What I think they should have done is go just a bit further by making a hybrid that combines the Kee and Maranga berries themselves, effectively merging 4 of these old event berries. Also, it would have been epic if they made a hybrid of the Lansat and Starf berries, since those are the hardest berries to get of all. Imagine what a berry like that would be able to do; a Pokemon with Harvest wielding that kind of power would be invincible >:)

    What is this talk about mutating berries? 0.o
    I must know of this further waste of my time!
    Mainly on from 12a EST to 6a EST. Please don't VM me, I rarely check them.

    At 85/100 friends, so I'm being a little more selective of the safaris I add. Usually this amounts to me asking what your 3DS ID name is.
    I have access to all starters from all generations, HA for only gen 1 and 6. Send a PM if there's one you want.

    I know that berries can be mutated and thats how people get access to the EV reducing berries. I just havent had inclination to go and get them. Tho I could use a set for the effed up EV breeding I did on a couple pokemon. That or a quick guide to a way to farm Reset Bags from Super Training.
