easy mistype, it is a "regional".
i guess my next question would be how viable virizion is both as a lead and as a dual screener? thats by far my favorite bw legend but the x4 to flying really steams my clams.
btw i have learned RNG and found it to be extremly helpful, but for those pokemon you cannot breed i was wondering if really was RNG or lose, or if it didnt really matter in the end if lets say u had poor defensive IVs.
