    True story: I used a Heart Scale to get Ember back on my Volcarona and was actually able to get by with it until I got to the Heat Wave tutor (and then it got Flamethrower right after, woot woot).

    But yeah, I got enough Shards out of the cave to Volcarona that I was able to give it Signal Beam straight away (it's only a 6 shard move, IIRC).

    Sorry if this has been answered but I couldn't find it. Does Sheer Force still removes Life Orb Recoil?

    Yes it can. But only ds games. Dsi enhanced and 3ds games are locked. B2w2 are dsi enhanced. So you'll need a ds or a Dslite to play them.

    Okay I need to know this.. did anyone get far in Challenge mode yet? How hard is it really? Do the random trainers and gym leaders have EV trained pokemon now, or is it still a steamroll just with more grinding due to higher levels? It would be cool to have a reasonably challenging experience, and maybe use a properly built team instead of throwing random pokes around and overleveling them ;p

    Do traded Pokemon have a lower barrier for friendship evolution in B2W2; like the ones obtained in game?

    The affected trainers get raised levels, hold items, better AI, and moves to cover up their weaknesses.

    That's it? Their pokemon still have 0 EVs? Shame. Oh well at least I can look forward to the subway.

    I don't think anyone's checked if they gain evs/ivs in challenge mode, to be fair

    Serebii says ditto appears in a hidden hollow. I didn't see it on previous lists. Is this correct?

    So, in-game trades.

    Do them trade a Pikablu or what

    once you call them 100 times you have to rescue them from a speeding truck

    edit: Hey speaking of trades, do these guys (and the things like Gigalith, Ambipom, etc) have set IVs like last game?

    Ambipom has 20/20/20/20/20/31.

    Not sure about Zam and can't get Hippo so I'll assume it's the same but with the 31 in SpA.

    Cottonee is the same.

    Gigalith is 31 in Attack; serebii also got the nature wrong (it's Adamant, not Jolly).

    Tangrowth is 31 in HP, serebii got this one wrong too (Hardy / etc.).

    Well if Ambipom's signature IV was speed, I'm guessing Alakazam's will be Special Attack while Gigalith's will be Defense (basing off the Emolga trade) and the sun stone grass mons & rotom will have the same as in BW1.
    Wonder what the billion Forgotten Item trades have

    I know this was mentioned before, but I'm not sure if there was ever an answer - is there a Mulch maniac somewhere?

    The Forgotten Item trades are completely random, Gender/Nature/PID/IVs, it's all random and can actually be RNGed http://www.pokecheck.org/?p=detail&uid=1562987 No idea if there's a shiny lock on them or not yet. EDIT: Looks like there is a shiny lock, tried to hit the shiny frame and got a PID nowhere on the list.

    Is it just me, or are there a metric assload of PP Max in this game compared to previous games? I've got like 7 of them.

    They were unlimited in B/W. The Veteran trainers in the sport domes will give you one when you defeat them.

    Is it because I chose to train 5 pokemon since the start that I am always behind 3-4 levels of most trainers / gym ?

    I haven't even gone into the domes yet. This is just walking around.
