Now that monotypes are essentially done (well, besides Dragon I guess), I decided to try a dual type run where both types favour the same area.
For this run, I used 2 types that boosted the same area to the same rate. In this case, I used Joltik and Galvantula. Bug and Electric favour Forest and both boost it to about 50%. These are the results:
Forest is about 50%. By the looks of it, the rate doesn't change if the rates of the individual types are the same. Unfortunately, this will probably mean that Fire/Fighting types will not be any different from pure Fire and pure Fighting types, so the best rate you can have for Mountain is 50%. Oh well.
Next time I'll test a dual type where the area favoured is the same but the rate is different.
Today I tested Normal/Flying to see if they act like pure Flying or if the Normal type has some sort of dilutional effect on the Flying type.
I tested with Pidove and Swellow. Unfortunately this run is a bit smaller than normal because my run with Swellow got interupted by my internet acting up. I literally got 9 visits to the island from that run! I decided to post it anyway:
From this dataset it looks like the Normal type DOES reduce the effect of the Flying type. Of course, Normal/Flying (or Dragon/Flying) is possibly your best bet for visiting the Sky if you don't have Sky Plate Arceus, though it isn't as good.
I might test Dragon/Flying tomorrow just to make sure.
This will probably be my last post for gathering data for a while (unless someone has any particular requests). I really want to try and get all the current females before BW2 comes out here and I can't test properly while I do that. I hope someone found what I've been doing useful though...
Do copies of Black and White sold in American Target stores still come with codes for Justified Lucario? I've heard conflicting answers to this; most sites (such as Bulbapedia) list the event as having run from January to April, but Serebii (who didn't even report it until May 22) lists it as running through September. I know you can still use the code through October 4, but I need clarification on whether or not the games are still being sold with the codes in them. I went to my local Target and asked; they had no idea. Does anyone for sure?
Will this be on the cover of the display box or just the boxes of the actual games for sale (or both)? When I went there, I didn't see any mention of a code on the cover of the display box, and when the employee opened up the cabinet to try answer my question, I didn't see anything on the sale boxes either.
Do you have more info on specifically what it says on the box and how noticeable it is? A picture would be great, but I doubt you have that.
Just avoid level 5 Togepi, sometimes they're White Forest ones.
Actually, same for Riolu, BW2 has them in the wild at level 5. But generally, yeah, they're easy to find on the GTS if you hunt on there, just because of those rules.
(And check to see if the japanese OT is the same as the one offering, that's always a nice rule of thumb. Wouldn't 100% only use Japan though, sometimes people don't have themselves plugged in the globe and pop up as from nowhere.)
I know it's easy to get in B/W2 (I'd just wait for it to come out here rather than using the untrustworthy hack-infested GTS), but I may be buying a new B/W game in the meantime (not a used one), so if this promotion is still available, I may as well buy my game at Target with the gift card I have and get the Lucario, especially since I like collecting event Pokémon.
