    Hey if you guys find anymore Hidden Hollow Pokemon would you mind posting here in this thread http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3454925 if you're playing on an emulator and can screenshot (hell even snap a picture of your DS) that's even better but not necessary. I just want to have as many of them in the OP. Thanks

    So, I have been curious about using Wi-Fi to connect to BW1 to battle, and just tried it earlier today. It does work. So then I tried bringing a Therian Tornadus to see if the game would allow me to use it agains someone using BW1, if it wouldn't let me select it on the team preview, or if it would just reset it to its normal form. Turns out it did let me use the therian form, tough my opponent saw it as the normal form on his game. My question is, wich stats are taken into account during the battle? The therian form ones? The normal ones? Or does it depend on whoever is hosting the match? Can one of you tech savy guys look into the game's code and check this out for me, if it hasn't been done already?

    You should be able to tell yourself by looking at its stats in the battle. In any case, if someone was using a Platinum form, and battling a DP game, it had the alternate form's stats, but the old sprite.

    Depends On who was hosting the battle. Like in dp vs pt if pt was hosting then it would use platinum's hypnosis accuracy. Shaymin would still be a grass/flying type but would appear as a land forme.

    Does only Kyurem or Reshiram/Zekrom have to be shiny to get a shiny B/W-Kyurem or do Kyurem and Reshiram/Zekrom both have to be shiny to get a shiny B/W-Kyurem?

    Also, is it confirmed that the shards are Dream Radar exclusives?

    Only Kyurem have to be shiny, right now I'm not even sure if its possible to catch a shiny Reshiram/Zekrom. Probably not, because it's N's Zekrom/Reshiram that you catch, which is a lame excuse :/

    They're also in the dust clouds.

    Also, Technician Breloom is in the hidden hollows. Boo-freakin-yah.

    I cannot WAIT to Nuzlocke challenge mode! Notice how the Gym Leaders' new Pokemon/new moves counter the stuff that walks all over them in normal mode? Roxie's Grimer will easily take care of Magnemite with high SpD and Mud Slap, Burgh's Leavanny has Aerial Ace to dispose of Pignite with, etc. I think challenge mode'll be truly hard to beat in places.

    I'm skeptical that Breloom isn't gender locked.

    PM me a save file/save state with (player) right next to Breloom, and I can confirm.

    Every hidden hollows mon I've tested was gender locked and never-shiny...

    In case this was not confirmed yet: Life Orb retains it's old interaction with Sheer Force.

    I hacked a Sheer Force Conk and gave it the elemental punches to test it, Life Orb is still the same for Sheer Force boosted moves.

    And neither are the musketeers this time. That's sad.

    Oh well, there's always BW.

    There goes my hope of ever getting a green glowstick Zekrom. Thanks Trollfreak....

    I don't see why they added it to the Muskedeers too. They really shouldn't block any Pokemon from being shiny...

    And why Braviary and Mandibuzz? That just seems so random.

    Where is the list of the challenge team layouts? I can't seem to find it in the thread anywhere... I saw the new teams, but not the movesets/items etc

    Anyone have any ideas?

    @Above, because trollfreak :P

    Yeah, Trollfreak gonna troll. Like denying Haxorus Fire Punch and Escavalier Drill Run wasn't enough, right? Well, it's not a total loss. I already have a Shiny Braviary, and it's not as though Defiant is its best possible ability anyway. As for Mandibuzz, it could always be bred to be Shiny, and Weak Armor is far from its best possible ability.

    Seriously, how do they allow Forretress to learn Drill Run and not the likes of Dodrio or Escavalier? Forretress! The damn thing is nearly spherical! And why doesn't Darmanitan get ThunderPunch? Infernape gets ThunderPunch! Heatmor gets ThunderPunch!

    On that note, though, I am glad Heatmor finally got its claws on some physical STAB in the way of Fire Punch.

    Drill Run was pretty much only given to Pokemon with drill-like horns. For example:
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Forretress only gets Drill Run because Pineco does--generally, tutor move compatibility extends across entire families in BW2.

    Well, that makes a little more sense, in the same vein as Dusknoir getting Mega Kick because Dusclops got the move from the Generation III tutor. But still, they give it to Fearow, but not Dodrio? And they give it to Beedrill, but not Escavalier?

    EDIT: Serebii's revealed by how much the Shiny Charm increases the odds of finding Shinies.

    Serebii's wording can be misleading...

    Normally:
    1/8192 without charm
    3/8192 with charm

    Masuda
    6/8192 without charm
    8/8192 with charm

    Pretty sure this only applies to the interactable, Hidden Ability, lvl. 25 Braviary and Mandibuzz found on certain days at Route 4. (in their respective versions, of course). Still a bit odd, but not surprising given their track record with "unique" Pokemon.

    Yeah, I got that, but it still seems random, especially when you consider there was never such a restriction on the Zen Mode Darmanitan and the Friday Musharna in B/W 1.
