    Yeah, I was wondering if your partners' shards were combined with yours. It seemed like multiplayer Funfest was just a VS mode rather than co-op.

    Guess I'm stuck at Level 2 if that's true. :(
  2. Level 51

    Level 51 getting worse at mons day by day

    Whoa whoa whoa, you can co-op?
    /me smack self

    I have noticed, though, that for some missions, Level 3 is very doable even for individuals.

    Only thing new is Glaciate, V--Create and fusion moves were already given before.

    According to Serebii the moves are Blue Flare and Bolt Strike, not Fusion Flare and Fusion Bolt.

    That's a downer, Bolt Strike seemed like a great addition to CB Victini's movepool :/

    Lax?!? What not Jolly nature? It would have made a lot more sense considering it's going to be released during the Christmas season? If they wanted to make sure if could use it's Atk and SpAtk "equally" they could have gone with a +Spd, -[Sp]Def nature instead.

    Lol my bad dude. I get the Fusions mixed up with the other signature moves. But for the most part I was just referencing how it won't be that big of an impact for Victini other than a stronger Physical Electric Move. Blue Flare is a bit underwhelming with all the fire type moves for it plus the fact Physical tends to be more common of a move-set due to V-Create (I am not saying physical is the only set, only saying it's the most common) (and also I think Blue Flare might be it's strongest sp. fire move now). Glaciate...um I can't think of any good uses with the low power. Bolt Strike is going to be fun with V-Create sets though. And the fact that it's lax...I'm just gunna see if there's any ev spread to make it usable.

    Anyway. I'm happy seeing all the Japanese b/w 2 tournaments on the gl, now only if they'd come to the U.S. All-Star cup would be interesting, Eevee cup would be a fun distraction, and that Christmas cup looks amazing, despite the inevitable Arceus fest. I bet if anything all we get in the U.S. is vgc 2013 rule-set tournament.

    I doubt the victini is stuck at lax. The only events I can remember being stuck with 1 nature are lvl50 dragonite, shiny legendary beasts, VGC event pokemon.

    Lets hope it's a mistake and it's any nature or this will be as bad as that Quiet Eruption Heatran...

    At least it could be used in trick room teams.

    doesn't seem to be locked to lax though, according to bulbapedia

    blue flare is basically fire blast with double the burnhax and 10 more bp, i guess it can work on a special victini

    I need some help in Pokemon Black 2. I am up to the sixth gym, and my team consists of Serperior, Darmanitan, Frillish, Gigalith, Unfezant, and Lucario. There are all level 37, and I was wondering who I should take out from my team. I was planning to use gigalith on Skyla's whole team, but her Swanna might take it out.

    gigalith can just SR
    you can also detour to mistralton cave for the rock slide tm to use on darmanitan

    as for who to drop, i suggest dropping frillish, since there're better water-types later. if you really need it, you can temporarily replace serperior with a generic zebstrika or joltik

    I want to ask a simple question referring to the Key System:
    I just beat Cheren in my Black2, can i unlock Challenge Mode even if i don't have a key to send to the other player?
    if no, when is the earlier time you can unlock challenge mode?

    I just got a weird glitch in Black 2 when I went to check the Hidden Grotto for a Ditto in Giant Chasm. There should be a hidden item there according to the Dowsing Machine, but I can't pick it up. Is there any way to fix this or is it impossible to get anything from there anymore?

    So I need a little help here guys, I want to make a team for Black 2 (this is gonna be my first playthrough of the game) and want a team that will be fun, yet challenging. I do not want to steam roll through the game like i did in White 1 using a lot of upper tier pokemon.

    My questions for you guys are:

    -What are some good types to use on a team in this game? Bad Types?

    -My starter is going to be Tepig, I've decided that I'm going to also use Mandibuzz, Drilbur, either Frillish or Starmie, and either Yanmask or Gothita


    - Should I use Frillish or Starmie?
    - Yanmask or Gothita


    Again I'm not looking for an overpowered team here just something I can have fun playing with

    The team in progress so far

    -Tepig
    -Mandibuzz
    -Gothita/Yanmask
    -Frillish/Starmie
    -Petilil
    -Drilbur
