    Apparently the Amaze Mulch sucks. I used it on one Starf berry, a few Maranga berries, and a few Kee berries yesterday, but it turns out it's more trouble than it's worth. The soil only takes about 4-5 hours to go dry, which really sucks in this case because the Kee and Maranga berries take 4 days to grow while the Starf berry takes 5. I really hope the number of berries I get makes up for it, especially the Starf berries. However many Starf berries I get, I'll probably go ahead and plant all but one or two of them immediately. Hopefully I can also find someone who will trade me a Lansat berry for a Starf berry once I have a few extras.
    Still trying to come up with what could be like the ultimate berry effect, based on what berries we have and haven't had so far.

    So is that the point of the Memory Girl? She's a hack checker?

    No, it's just a cute side thing. Also as evidenced by the fact it carries to all Pokebank Pokemon.

    As long as they are registered in the dex in some manner (you catch and trade them yourself or test your luck at GTS or trading with someone else), but yes, the bird trio are required for completion.

    Actually, you don't need the Legendary Birds or Mewtwo to get the Oval Charm. I've had the Oval Charm for a while now, but I only recently logged Articuno as seen yesterday, as well as Moltres and Mewtwo this morning.

    zomg! So then I only need a Glyscor to complete the Kalos dex and not Zapdos and Glyscor. Good to know, checking to see if its accurate right now.
    Mainly on from 12a EST to 6a EST. Please don't VM me, I rarely check them.

    Only due to it's blazing speed, cascadethewarrior.
    Otherwise, Noivern sucks. There's a reason why Goodra is considered the Psuedolegendary and NOT Noivern.

    Pseudos aren't decided by how good the Pokemon is. Noivern isn't a pseudo because it doesn't have a 600 BST, isn't a three stage etc.

    It has amazing speed and okay everything else
    There's a reason it's not an exceptionally used Pokemon, even with Boomburst

    like Valoo. said, pseudos arent decided by fan popularity. there are actual "requirements" that some pokemon meet that make them pseudo legendaries.
    but anyway, noivern is rather mediocre it doesnt have much going for it besides its speed. its special attack is just short of good enough.

    Yep, the only way is through a Gen 5 Transfer. Not that it matters much for Conkeldurr because imo Iron Fist is pretty meh compared to Guts (which prevents you from being screwed by a burn).
    I make no claim of being perfect or always right. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.

    I'm assuming many others will have said the same as me, but I cba looking through the many, many pages to find it...

    But how isn't the Florges evolution line Fairy/ Grass types? Seems like an obvious typing to me!

    Well, there have been several speculations, with the primary ones being the fact that the flower being independent from the pixie's body(which is seemingly untrue for Florges' case) but obviously there is no official word on it. The most likely reason is probably the fact that Flower Veil will work on a Grass-type user as well as its Grass-type allies, and both of Florges' line's abilities were meant to for Double Battles. In other words, much like Plusle/Minun were forced for Doubles initially the evolutionary line is forced to be used in Doubles. This will likely change in the next even generation where we will likely see another set of Ability retcons/additions much like in this generation and in Gen IV, which will most likely happen sometime between 6 to 8 years from now.

    Or alternatively, when alternate typings for Pokémon happen, which would also likely take the same amount of time.
    This is Turtwig, he was the most under appreciatted starter in Diamond & Pearl. If you picked Turtwig as your starter, put this in your sig . Started by Dax-360

    They've retconned types before. Originally, Rotom's alternate forms kept its Electric/Ghost typing, but in 5th gen they changed it so the alternate forms gain their elemental type when changing forms. Also, several Pokemon changed types this gen with Fairy's introduction. So they can change Flabebe/Floette/Florges to Fairy/Grass if they want. Or just give Florges a Fairy/Grass Mega Evolution.

    I doubt that they'd retcon the Flabébé family's type; Rotom was a weird case due to having its forms introduced mid-gen (and being otherwise indistinguishable from each other beyond the special move), and every other case was due to the introduction of a new type retroactively applied to previously existing Pokemon.

    I'd think that if GameFreak wanted Florges or its pre-evolutions to be half Grass-type, they would've made them so; it's possible that they planned a Mega Evolution to tie it all together somewhere down the line, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    I find it bizarre that it's not part Grass. It sort of made sense with Flabébé because it just held the flower, but the flower is actually part of Florges so it would have been perfect for it to become part Grass. And even beyond that, it would have been nice to separate it from the four other pure Fairy lines we got this gen (particularly Sylveon, since they have pretty similar stat spreads).
