    Thank your lucky stars that the 4th gen Quick Claw/Guillotine Crawdaunt that activates and hits three turns in a row doesn't exist anymore.

    If you restart your game, does your DW data/points/items stay the same or do they reset?

    PokeTransfer is fun! Just a pity so many Pokemon are unobtainable naturally. I want to restart my White but it's got too much good stuff on it..post-game doesn't have so much despite all the extra routes.

    Poke Transfer is a lot better than Pal Park. I think I Transferred something like ten Boxes worth of Pokemon in two hours.

    I did that too; I think about 96 Pokemon (16 runs or so.) And it's actually fun. If hard.

    How is it hard?

    You hit the Pokemon as they're facing out of the bush, then predict where they'll jump and hit them again. After the first couple tries, I always had at least half my time remaining, and I never had to hit the Sleep Powder.

    At the beginning, some of the small rare Pokemon (like the Celebi I accidentally transferred regularly and nixed my chances of getting Zorua hurr durr) were hard to coax out of the bushes in just the right place before I refined my tehnique about ahlfway through and managed to catch everything in one go. My first try all I caught was Shroomish XD). I think I did more than 16, but the final amount of Pokemon were equivalent to that number of runs.

    The only problem with the Pal Park was that pointless time limit, and HG/SS fixed that...

    You can still get Zorua without the Relocator.

    I got Zorua and Zoroark and I don't have the Relocator.

    If you restart your game, you have to create a new Dreamworld account. Your old account still exists, but you won't be able to access it, since the servers see your game as a different cartridge.

    Unless you're doing a mixed Volcarona (...), you should probably try for a better nature than Rash. It hurts your ability to Quiver Dance.

    Depends. If you're battling Smogonites with it, go for a better nature. For random matchup or Battle Subway, it's fine. If a Hardy Virizion can sweep teams with no IV over 20 (true story), this will kick ass.

    An event Zoroark with Snarl was given away in Japan a few months earlier, but I think it's over now. Other than that, I don't think Zorua and Zoroark are obtainable outside of that and the Relocated legendary beasts and Celebi.

    You're shown a Zorua somewhere, and N uses a Zoroark. Just toss a Litwick on the GTS and ask for one, some crazy Japanese dude will send you one in no time.

    ...seriously, Litwicks go like hotcakes on the GTS, at least if they're female, it's pretty mindboggling. I mean, Chandelure is great an all, but Celestial Tower (an area you have to visit) is crawling with them and I don't think you can even see one before then...

    The only thing that the normal GTS is good for is to get UT Dream Ball Pokés or to get the DW events (Like a Calm flawless Vappy I sniped the other day, I think it's Bond697's because the OT/ID are Mat / 30160). GTS Negotiations is way, way, way better than the GTS, but for GTS Nego, you pretty much need to be able to clone so you can trade your good Pokés to Japanese peoples for their good Pokés (like a near-flawless shiny DW Shinx I got yesterday from someone). English/etc. players usually never have any good Pokémon though.

    I was referring how to obtain Zorua and Zoroark for yourself within the game. :P

    I was also disappointed when I learned that Zorua and Zoroark were event Pokemon; I was planning on using Zoroark on my final team. :/

    Regular GTS is nigh-useless to browse, but surprisingly reliable if you deposit something.

    Got a level 100 shiny Scolipede that way, among other things.

    I got an EV'ed Mienshao and EV'ed Reuniclus from it, but they both have the wrong abilities so I got better ones.

    Normal GTS' only purpose is to get quick DW Pokés. And, it gives a quick laugh once you realize how many Jirachi exist with the OT's "AAAAAAA" or "ASH".

    Whimsicott is possibly the most annoying pokemon right now. unless you get matched up with it, and have the vastly superior pokemon.. you're just asking for mindgames.
