    So I ain't no fancy big city RNGer, but from what I understand this looks to basically be an attempt to throw off people trying to manipulate the RNG and won't really screw over anyone who didn't try to manipulate it?

    That's the vibe I'm getting as well. Still sounds pretty silly, but sucks for those who have the knack for egg RNG abuse.

    I don't RNG/breed/whatever since last year, but just to be sure, what's exactly affected by this shitty error? I get the IV spreads for Eggs and nature are screwed, but what else that isn't affected by PIDs? Or is the PID unnaffected while gender/ability/etc are affected?

    What exactly activates Kyurem's 'sparkling' or 'overdrive' forms? I get that they're purely aesthetic, but I just want to see my shiny Kyurem-B go into Overdrive as much as possible because the green tubes are hella cool.

    Blue strip Rock head Basculin can be catch on the wild on Pokemon Black 2. Basculin ability has changed definitely?

    I guess it's to account for the fact that there was this ingame trade on White 1 that allowed you to get Rock Head Basculin?

    I always thought it was silly for something to have a fourth ability, especially only one form of something. This would probably explain why.

    (Besides, why else make them completely separate and not give them separate stuff? Well, Shellos aside. And maybe other stuff.)

    Wait all that talk on the previous page about how you should continue breeding in BW1...is that only for RNG stuff?

    I get my Pokemon to have good IV's and Nature the long way, with tons of breeding etc..that's still possible right?

    It only screws things up on the first egg of the current play. Every egg after gets generated like any normal egg. It really only screws up those who RNG their eggs (Since they tend to do it off a reset/startup).

    Well seeing as how there are no new egg moves rng can still be done on bw and you can just trade them over.

    New question: What are the costs of all the tutor moves? I know some of them are on the first page, but not all the costs are up there. Been trying to look around but can't find anything yet.

    How many shards do you get for losing the World Tournament?
    I keep seeing reference to "shards" so is it multiple or do you get just 1 of a random color.

    It's one of a random color. If you run in the first battle, you still get a shard, so it's easy to abuse.

    Speaking of PWT, I'm not sure if anyone else has mentioned this, but it's possible for Bianca to appear in it. She never appears in the Unova Leaders tournament (for obvious reasons), but she does appear in the others (the one you get when you speak to the green woman). Anyone knows what theme is played when you fight her this way? I only encountered her once, and it was during the final >.>

    It plays the Rival theme from BW1 when she appears in the tournament.

    EDIT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oR4HLrjEt8&feature=player_detailpage#t=166s Here's some video proof.

    What's the puzzle you need to solve to get Regirock? Serebii's apparently being vague and I have no idea where to go "6 steps down 9 steps right"

    I mean if I can transfer my PokeDex seen/caught information from B&W1 to B&W2? I mean I'm not going to grind a Dratini to Level 55 again so I can have Dratini/Dragonair/Dragonite on my PokeDex.

    No, of course not.

    But, good news: You won't have to! There are Dragonites in the Route 18 hidden hallow (and Dragon Spiral tower always had high level Dragonairs & a low percent chance of finding Dragonites)
