    GameFreak lacks a motive to completely screw us over?

    Only RNGers got screwed. And even then, "screwed" because I understood it as only Egg IV spreads being impossible to RNG anymore.

    Yeah a few people have said it only affects the first egg of any given game session.
    Which doesn't matter much to people that just breed forever for things

    RNGers tend to reset their game often to change the clock etc.

    Which of course means MWL is correct since it kind of translates to the traditional method being impossible to use anymore.

    Of course if you don't RNG then it's all fine :/

    Well, as I don't RNG, this doesn't affect me in the slightest.

    So, changing the subject somewhat, can one use Synchronizers in Entree Forest now?

    To add to Missingno. Master's question:

    Do Synchronizers works on Hollow pokemon?

    No, PID Frame still advances when the C-gear is on.

    Possible. While gender, ability, and species are locked when generated their nature are random.

    Edit: Appears I was wrong about nature being locked within HH, my mistake.

    Can one reset for IVs at least? As long as I'll be able to SR for an Imposter Ditto with a 31 in HP, that's all I need.

    Nature isn't locked. I reset for a good nature on my Minccino.

    Another question- what do you do with the thrift store stuff from Join Avenue? Who is this expert whose opinion you're supposed to get?

    You get items directly from the thrift store; no need to take anything to anyone. But its random, like the lowest one you can buy has like Hard Stones and Tiny Mushrooms.

    Ive gotten sacred ash from join avenue and thats either from the people passing by or from the thrift store.

    Deku: If I understood correctly, yes the teams from VGC11 are indeed in BW2. However, they're kind of... badly ported. The nicknames are all cut off and somebody's Mienshao (Human's?) has Rock Blast instead of Rock Slide, lol.

    Yeah, but the games can still receive "DLC rosters" so Nintendo/Game Freak will release the proper teams in the future.

    Maybe the user wants eggs/Pokemon with the ID/SID of their BW2 game although it's possible (though tiny bit more tricky) to RNG an egg in BW1 and simply transfer it into BW2 then hatch it to have whatever ID/SID you have within BW2. I mean it's not like the PID/IV of an egg changes when hatching within a different game.

    Well, I guess the main issue is convenience; with so many new tutor moves, something's granted to use them, meaning it's just one less step in the process of breeding a battle-ready mon.

    Oh, and nothing in existence is truly random, just pseudo-random to the point that it cannot be predicted.

    Anyone know of a decent guide? The only real reason I'd need one is to know who not to talk to or where not to go in order avoid wasting special mons that I can RNG later.

    Just a quick question; did the Water and Magma Cave mentioned a while ago ever come to anything involving Groudon and Kyogre?

    No, the cave just contains Heatran in both versions.

    The weather titans are unavailable in BW2, I guess this is to keep fans on their toes for a RSE remake...?

    Or they just didn't want to put in any "big" legends normally. If it wasn't for those pesky Lati@s I'd say it was because they were in the relatively recent HGSS.

    Honestly, people could find RSE remake """""""""""hints"""""""""""" in their food at this point

    Genesect is Coro Coro's cover, will be distributed next month. For me, countdown to Gen 6 has started, once they have no new pokémon to reveal. the only game that should be released is a Pokémon battle revolution for WiiU.

    If we're trying to "catch 'em all" in the BW/B2W2 Series, we're missing a few Pokémon that could appear in an RSEmake: All of the Starter Pokémon outside of Unova, All of the Kanto and Johto Legendary Pokémon, and the Weather Titans, as well as some misc. stuff like Pikachu (!) that isn't in B/W/B2/W2 or the Dream World.

    If we include recent distributions, then we're still missing (worldwide) the Kanto Birds, the Johto Starters and the Johto Beasts. (Internationally, we're also missing the Weather Titans.)

    But this topic isn't about RSEmakes so I'll shut up. How about that Genesect?
