it's 31/x/31/31/31/31 (5 = hex, much like 4 = quadruple.)

A hex-flawless Pokemon is one that has straight 31's in all six of its stats. Hex means six, so that's why those Pokemon are sometimes called hex flawless.

EDIT: @Despotar: No. "Quint-" is the prefix for 5. Hex is for six, just like as in a hexagon.

How come no one puts Soul Dew on their Lati@s in this thread? I mean, it looks like it would be such an effective item. I've been looking at it for a while, but been afraid to put one on my team should it be illegal when I do put it on my team, therefore making my team ineligible to be on there. __________________ Team Division 6 I airsoft when I'm not on the interwebz.

Curselax could work as a Starmie counter and setup sweeper, while Substitute/Calm Mind Jirachi or Raikou could work well too. Jolteon can be an effective revenge killer and KO/setup with Charge Beam. As for another setup sweeper, DDTar works very well, as does Swords Dance/Nasty Plot Infernape. Substitute Gengar works too.

Yes. Use http://www.smogon.com/calc/ to check these things.

 Jul 3rd, 2010, 5:13:04 PM #64 Enygma     Join Date: Aug 2009 Posts: 351 The game needs change, and I'm the motherfuckin' cashier. I'm theorymonning a set for Battle Tower Breloom. I did calcs, and IIRC Pokemon like to round up. At 228 EV's, Breloom reaches 164 HP, which gets me 21, 20.5 rounded up. This means that 252 EV's would be a waste since 167 gets the same amount of recovery. However, if I placed 252 EV's, I would have the same amount of recovery, BUT the HP my Substitute would have is 42, which is 41.75 rounded up. I want my Breloom to have the most beneficial spread for HP to net the most Poison Heal recovery as well as the highest HP for Subs possible while maintaining the best level of efficiency. Is 252 better? Or 228? __________________ Team Division 6 I airsoft when I'm not on the interwebz.

With the Jirachi being given out on WiFi, can you use Synchronize and/or RNG abuse to affect it, or do you just have to let Lady Luck rule?

Synchronize doesn't work, but it doesn't depend on Lady Luck as much as how the RNG works.

If I ask for something on SQSR, don't link me to Pokecheck. If I were willing to use it, I wouldn't be asking for it there.

My blog. I'm compiling a list of vocabulary used in Japanese game manuals to help me and other people learn the language of the Land of the Rising Sun.

Except that it rounds down.
http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/breloom though it assumes flawless IVs, so you'll have to adjust for that.

I'm breeding for a Bold female, and I was wondering if that had any influence over it, because I know females are given different IVs than males, and, since I'm on Platinum, I check with the guy in the game corner and most of my Bold females are said that they will have HP Bug. I guess my question is, how do you breed for IVs, particularly for HP Electric @ BP70, and how do you know what each IV is exactly for each stat?

And I'm not exactly sure if male/female if different HP..

You either use AR code to check, or level it up higher to use RNG Reporter.

Yes it is, but there's no other way without cheating.
This works with Macs, dunno if it's the same or what, I use dell.
People generally use a AR or something, you can also use this.

Yes, because nowadays Salamences are used just for a bulky beast.

http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/salamence<--- Shows they don't ev train SpD so you don't have to worry about that, and they wouldn't bother the reason is that OUsers tend to have a BLissey, but if your Gengar had Focus Blast like how every other Gengars have now-a-days. It would just tend to go to some resisting pokemon.
