    According to Bulbapedia, the chance of a shiny appearing after your chain hits 40 is 1/200.

    Well 1 in 200 sounds about right... considering how I didn't encounter a shiny patch. Thanks!

    would any one trade a perfect LV.1 IV stat Impish Skarmory with moves brave bird, whirlwind, roost, and spike?

    I want to start to get into making a team, and this actually discourages me that I can't get a perfect 31 down the list of IV's.

    anyone care to give me a lending hand??

    If I apply vitamins to my Mismagius and other EV enhancers in Gen 4 will those changes pass over to Gen 5?

    An Action Replay code allows it, but certain websites record information of NCP's Pokémon so you could legitimately create one

    What is a NCP?

    It is in a masterball. Is it a 'legal' hack?

    Sorry, meant to say NPC referencing a non-playable character in the game. But since it's in a Master Ball, it is a hack, but without more information I can't determine its legality

    All stats/ivs are in order. Lowest iv is 29. So usable yes? No hacked moves either...

    I dont think its possible to get infernape in a master ball since you cant find them in the wild?

    Question regarding GSC: As soon as I catch a Pokemon regardless of level it will have 0 stat experience correct? I ask because I am wondering if I can plug its stats into a DV calculator and correctly get its DV values.

    Introduction to Wi-Fi in 4th gen:

    So with that posted, here's my question now: Are Shaymin-S, Giratina-O, and the Rotom formes available to use on Wi-Fi now? It's been a few years since Platinum has been out, and I remember you couldn't use their formes on Wi-Fi, but I just watched a battle on YouTube and saw the person using a Shaymin-S on Wi-Fi. Has it been fixed or did s/he use a code to be able to do that?

    I'm pretty sure they're able to be used in 5th gen battles, but I could be wrong. I'm only wondering if they work in 4th gen Wi-Fi battles for right now. Thanks in advance.

    DPPt/HGSS question: Does a guide exist detailing Battle Tower AI mechanics? I'm looking for something along the lines of what attack the AI would use in a given matchup, specifically if it has two or more equally viable options.

    HGSS question: I am super frustrated. I'm trying to breed an Aerodactyl with perfect/near perfect IVs and I just don't understand RNG. I've done over 1 hour of reading/youtube tutorials and I just don't get it.

    I'm trying to get:
    Aerodactyl, Jolly nature, near perfect or perfect IVs in everything but special attack (don't care what it turns out to be), and have pressure as an ability.

    I have: both parents, perfect IVs

    I have eontimer, RNG reporter 8.31, a 3DS, Soul Silver

    If someone could tell me what I have to do in simple plain terms I would really appreciate it.

    Do you have an old amber in your pack? because if you don't need any egg moves, then I recommend trying to get aero by reviving the fossil, as it's much simpler to RNG than breeding.
