    A speedy attacker and a phazer do not make. A speedy attacker needs investment in speed and the offenses to deal enough damage to KO before it gets KOed. A phazer needs to be bulky and resistant to attacks because Roar and Whirlwind are negative priority.

    If you're looking for a fast phazer, you'll need to use Rest and Sleep Talk.

    I would probably sugest either celebi or jirachi as they are very bulky and fast but NEVER double post as it can get you banned. Just edit your first post.

    I found platinum, so I'm going to start chaining soon, but I have one question. What happens when you save in front of a sparkling patch of grass, will the IVs be different every time?

    By the way, don't refer me to the RNGing guide.

    You can't soft reset patches while chaining. If you soft reset the patch won't yield anything when you reload.

    I had a Nincada that I evolved while it had EVs invested in HP and I got the corresponding Shedinja which inherited that EV spread. But vitamins and EV reducing berries "won't have any effect" on a Shedinja, so are the HP EVs that it supposedly inherits deleted or does the Shedinja still have worthless HP EVs that the game just won't let me erase?

    Would like do ask will the pinch berry activate when the hp is dropped to below 25% if it was caused by entry hazards. I just had a few matches in shoddy but it cant activate if it was caused by SR or spikes

    This is a known bug in Shoddy. It will probably be fixed in Shoddy Battle 2. For a thread of all the known bugs, look here.

    Yes. Bug Bite also inflicts double damage if it eats the berry.

    Silly question, but with regards to the next generation, can it be assumed that the majority of pokemon bred now will be useful in B and W... like will my flawless Jolly Garchomp, Bold Milotic, Calm Togekiss, and Timid Jolteon have merit next generation?

    most likely they will still be useful however noone can say you now if there wont be a new pokemon that outclasses them or that they just wont be that good as they were in gen 4.

    Those natures and perfect IVs will always be good for those Pokemon, but you will likely want to rebreed if any new exciting egg moves pop up.

    Shedinja cannot have HP EVs, despite the fact that it awards 2 HP EVs when it is defeated in a battle.

    But did the HP EVs that the Nicada had when it evolved disappear on the Shedinja meaning I can reallocate them, or do they still count toward Shedinja's 510 EV cap?

    Does sleep acitvate Guts, to be used in concordance with Sleep Talk?
    I don't see why it would not, I have never bothered checking.

    I'm not sure, I assume they were deleted, but you can always bring your Shedinja to the girl in Sunnyshore that gives you the Effort Ribbon if you have all 510 EVs

    Yes it does

    Skarmory can also learn Whirlwind, as an egg move.

    Thanks, Zacchaeus. After earning the Effort Ribbon and testing out the behavior of vitamins, I've concluded that Shedinja does in fact keep all the EVs. The game just prevents you from messing with the ones in HP.

    That's a blowout. As long as you have the Attack EVs it should work okay, Speed is important but Shedinja doesn't have to worry too much about it, and unless you're running some strange Baton Pass set, you definitely don't need any Defense or Special Defense
