    Hey everyone! I am going to buy a 3DS and Pokemon Y and I was thinking if ,before playing the game,I need to download the update from the e-shop.I know one is for fixing the Lumiose city save glitch but the rest are related to trading and stuff. I won't be using the functions like trading and battling.Is it completely mandatory to download the updates or can I play the game without it? As I said I won't be using the GTS or anything (for now) so if I just be careful not to save in the particular parts in Lumiose city,can I play the game without downloading the update? Thanks.

    You will be barred from accessing any online features, but yes you can play the game without the patches.

    By online features you mean the PSS And GTS etc right? Can I still access stuff like the battle institute and Pokemon Amie?

    Yes -- you should be fine with that, it is just online functionality that is restricted. From memory I was doing the pokemon amie thing on the train...2 weeks before it even connected to the net (after lumiose update was released).

    Enjoy!

    checking the battle maison thread i see there are some 'sets' the pokemon can come with, and how people react to each one of them.

    is there a place with those sets listed here?

    In the OP, there is a list of the high scores in each battle type. If you click on the list of which pokemon were used, it will link you to the post where the team is broken down and explained.

    Non-shiny Ho-Oh, Moltress & Rayquaza

    Don't know where to ask this, but will the closure of Nintendo wifi of b/w affect pokecheck?

    Yes. Wifi will stop existing so no external connections will be able to be made. I am pretty sure Gen 4/Gen 5 Pokecheck will die with it.

    BUT they are about to release support for gen 6, and previous gens will still work until said date (may 20), so theres plenty of time to use its services.

    i dont know about you, but having a backup of every mon i had on gen 5 and still can pass them to gen 6 w/o losing the original seems pretty legit to me as you cant interact between those two versions directly.

    On that note it may be possible after May 20th with community effort to set up a private authentication server - there is still hope for saving Pokecheck for gens 4 & 5. Info for the project can be found here. So far only the Brawl and MK communities have been mobilized but hopefully Pokemon will be too.

    When are the IVs of the roaming birds fixed in XY? We have encountered them a few times in the wild (not in the hideout) and we fear it might get locked.

    IVs are not set until you actually fight them in the cave.

    This might be a stupid question, but is there an etiquette for posting Let's Play and challenge threads? I browsed through a bunch just now, and saw that a couple have a little note that says "Thread approved by so-and-so". Since most others didn't have such a note, I'm guessing the answer is no, but just in case: should I be asking a mod to okay an LP thread before I post it? Alternately, is there anything else I should be aware of when posting LPs?

    Every Pokemon site in existence (including Serebii) claims that Helping Hand is one of Tyrogue's egg moves. Is that true? When we have paired a Ditto and a Hitmonchan with Fake Out/Helping Hand/Mach Punch/Bullet Punch, the offsprings had Fake Out/Foresight/Mach Punch/Bullet Punch.

    This is pretty important because in that case a Hitmontop cannot freely switch between Feint (level-up move) and Helping Hand.

    Depends on the forum you're looking at, e.g. Tournaments will usually require a moderator's approval before you put it up. Not too sure about Let's Play though.

    Perhaps you'd want to give one less egg move on your Hitmonchan parent so that Helping Hand can be passed down instead? At any rate, Hitmontop learns Feint naturally, so after you pass down Helping Hand, you can get Feint as you level it up. :)

    Something very strange happened:

    We put a Hitmonlee with just Helping Hand into the daycare. Then we have evolved the offspring (tedious) and forgot Helping Hand and Fake Out via Move Deleter. Strangely enough, we could relearn both Helping Hand and Fake Out, despite the latter one neither being an egg move, nor a level-up move. We sadly missed the opportunity to check Foresight and Tackle.

    Now can anyone explain this?


    Edit: Bulbapedia says:
    The Hitmonlee at hand was born with Foresight and Fake Out, both being LV 1 moves of Tyrogue. It naturally learns Foresight, but usually much later than this one. Fake Out neither is an egg move, nor a level-up move. Both can be relearned.

    We think we should clear that misconception. We won't tell people again that Pokemon can relearn their egg moves. They, in fact, can relearn every move that have been born with.

    It still does not explain why only two moves have been passed down. Please let us know if you catch a hint!
