    You could always port your Pokemon over to your Pokemon Stadium 2 in te meantime so that should the battery run out, your Pokemon will be safe.

    When you encounter it at its shrine in GS it has the standard chance of being shiny...

    Blast Burn is a Gen 5 tutor, in case you didn't know.

    What's better to do, feed several low level low sheen poffins to a pokemon or one high level high sheen poffin?

    Is this the appropriate place to ask for a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team rescue? If not, I need somewhere that takes those.

    you can only feed so many poffins to a poke before it will no longer take them - so make sure they're all good ones!

    Is it possible to get shiny pokemon in pokemon rumble? I found a yellow lickitung earlier on there, and I couldn't believe my eyes!

    Not really counting it as my first shiny encounter though, only has like 1200 power :(

    These are more questions about the general canon, apologies if this isn't allowed here.

    Can Kingdra function/battle/hover on land by virtue of its dragon typing?

    Can Togekiss support the weight of a person in flight?

    I can't find anywhere to ask about clarification on site rules, and this place is generally very friendly, so where should I ask?

    I think these are unanswerable questions

    for example pokemon like Basculin can also supposedly function/battle/hover during battles and they aren't dragon. And even Pidgey gets fly and can theoretically support a person in flight. It's literally a foot tall and weighs four pounds.

    Best bet is to PM a friendly mod :) The mods form OI are fairly knowledgeable.

    Tohekiss could more than support someone... I mean if Pidgey/Spearow/Taillow can...

    In D/P(not PT), can you grab Dialga/Palkia before the 8th gym or after?

    Before. I remember having trouble with Volkner, so I grabbed DIALGA and ROAR OF TIME HAHAHA BITCHES!!!

    (In fact, you could after the 7th gym I believe, as long as you go to the lake up by snowpoint first.)

    Before. The entire story with Team Galactic ends in Mt. Coronet, then the path to Volkner opens up next to Lakefront.

    Thanks!

    Three questions on Hidden Grottoes in BW2...

    1)
    According to Serebii and Bulbapedia, every time you take 256 steps in the overworld, there is a 5% chance of any grotto(es) "resetting" (new content is generated in one). From what I understand, a grotto will not "reset" if there is any content in it at all (an item, hidden or not, or a Pokémon), no matter how many steps are taken. The content has to be removed (picked up or battled) by a player to disappear. Am I correct?

    2)
    You can use Pass Powers to "Increase the chance of meeting a Pokémon" in the grottoes. In what way does this work?
    - Does it lower the amount of steps required for the Grotto to have a chance of resetting?
    - Is the chance of the grotto resetting increased from the usual 5%?
    - Is the chance of meeting a Pokémon (usually 20%) increased, once the grotto resets?
    - Something else?

    3)
    There are three Pass Powers concerning Hidden Grottoes: Hidden Grotto Power +, ++, and +++. The first lasts 5 minutes, the other two 10 and 15, respectively. Do the second and third tier powers have any "stronger" effect on Pokémon generation in grottoes, or is the only difference that they last longer and cost more?

    Any answers would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    1) Correct
    2) Not sure on any to be honest.
    3) Last longer and cost more only.

    I'm pretty sure that's right, could be wrong though. :(

    If you want a challenge take Ledyba :P, but it is fun too to look at either the Scramble challenge where people would want to give you mons, plus some extra restrictions to make the game somewhat harder (as it is made for 6 year old difficulty), also you can do a nuzlocke challenge, where the game decides any mon you get besides your starter, as well does it have some rules to make it harder too, so check out those forums! you may like it.
