    Where does a complete rng noob go to learn how to rng? It's completely ridiculous that you can't breed or even synchronize dream world event pokemon, and I want a good espeon.

    Also, does anyone want to trade me a tornadus for my (crappy) thundurus? I figure that the gts will allow me to have both for landorus, but i need the dex entry.

    Nope, now go catch that Landorus, unless that Thundurus was your only one.

    Alright, goofy question: Is there anything majorly important one would need to gather before they reset their save file?

    I've defeated the E4 once.
    I've captured Tornadus.
    I've traded over Black's Thundurus and captured Landorus.
    I've captured Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion.
    I'm on my way to catch Kyurem.
    I have the Larvesta Egg.
    I'll catch the Volcarona after I catch a Zen Mode Darmanitan.
    I'm going to go get my Victini once everything is said and done.

    I'm sure I'm missing a few things.
    > Is there anything special after defeating the E4 a second time?
    > Are there any special items I should care about?
    > Your Wonder Cards reset when you delete the save file, yes?

    I really enjoy the main part of these games and I'd like to play through it a third time with the starter I haven't chosen (Snivy) but I don't want to reset until I've gotten everything I should get.

    How easy is it to get a female Dream World Eevee? I haven't even bothered with the DW yet because I see lots of posts saying it's just better to search the GTS for one. However, I'd really like a female DW Eevee for breeding purposes, and I don't think it'd be prudent of me to rely on the GTS to get a legit one...

    There are no female dream world eevees. The eevelutions are only found via events, and dream world event pokemon have thus far always been male.

    There is a new japanese event for an anticipation eevee, but there is no word on whether or not it can be female.

    Female Eevee have been reported already. Not that I got one, mind you, all six Eevee I found were male...

    Don't reset your game TWICE.

    * buys game*
    plays it for the first time
    completes everything
    reset
    completes everything again
    reset again
    Believe me, doing all the gyms and stuff like that THRICE in a short period of time is very hard. Very probably, you won't even finish the game for a third time.

    Just don't reset it and start breeding/grinding/battle subway/E4 streak/completing pokedex/anything else
    TRUST ME

    I really regret my choice, and I don't want any others to feel the same.

    Heya guys, I'm looking for some suggestions for a 6th on my team. I just beat the elite 4 with 5 pokes and am about to go face N I think.
    I don't think I can I leave or anything yet, but I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for a 6th poke for when I'm able to go get it. haha
    As of right now I have Emboar, Galvantula, Jellicent, Scrafty, and Haxorus. I really have no idea what could benefit my team, and don't really want to use any legendaries.

    You don't need one. You're forced to capture Reshiram/Zekrom before you face N for the final time anyway, and you WILL want to use it...

    I've had Black for a little less than a week now and my team is Samorott, Stoutland, Gurdurr (with evolite because I don't have anyone to trade with), Excadrill, Galvantula, and Lampent (I'll evolve it as soon as I get a dusk stone). I have to say, keeping these guys at about 5-6 levels higher than the gym leaders means an easy run through so far. Stoutland's starting to lag in power, but he's pulled his weight through the 7th gym. Excadrill and Galvantula are beasts, Samorott's a great water type, and Lampent's WoW and Hex combo has got me thinking of making a stall team centered on a sweep with him.

    Is there a place in B/W where I can check how many eggs I've hatched (like the TV station in D/P/P)?

    First, to address your 3 questions at the end:
    > You get to fight the Champion, which you didn't get to do before. Otherwise, nothing special.
    > Leftovers and Lucky Egg come to mind. Most of the really good stuff, sadly, requires you to go to the Battle Subway. There's about a half dozen each of Rare Candies and Heart Scales, though, if you're gonna be collecting those.
    > Yes, they do. Enjoy your Victini army XD

    Now, other stuff. If you have the dogs/Celebi, you can ship them up to get Zorua/Zoroark if you haven't, but that's not a big deal since you can breed, I guess.

    You said you traded over black's Thundurus, but he's in White, so I'll assume you're playing Black. Go head into Black City and collect a good stock of any items in the shops there, if they're worth it. Then, if any of the trainers have stuff that'd be problematic for you to get, try and GTS them. (If you've got White, then in the Forest just collect all of the Pokemon there, which takes 5 minutes.)

    The Munchlax in Undella town during summer has Lefties, so it's probably worth the Cincinno, if you're in Summer. The Rotom trade in Route 15 is definitely worth it, however.

    Most other stuff comes up as daily/weekly/seasonal events, so you don't need to worry about it as much.

    I think that about covers it.

    I agree with that. I beat Black 4 times in rapid succession, and by the 4th time it is mostly just painful. When I finally bought the English version, I couldn't bear to play it for very long.

    Castelia city's Casteila Street has the Game Freak building on the southeastern part of the road. Morimoto is on the 22nd floor of that building.

    I know where he is. I'm talking about where he is on the list, since Skorpius and Daenym didn't mention him.

    Morimoto was an incredibly disappointing battle. Yea, he's got high levels, but his team is terribly easy to handle with just about anything.

    You only need to PokeShift the event 'mons from DPPtHGSS to get Zorua and Zoroark. I have both (actually I traded my Zorua over GTS but whatever) and I don't even have the Relocator.

    You don't even need the event because you 'see' zorua in-game, which allows you to find it on the GTS.

    You don't even need to SEE Zorua ingame because N has a Zoroark.

    No more discussion, eh?

    So the girlfriend and I are playing around with WhiteForest/BlackCity and we've come to the conclusion that they're so pointless and hold nothing of value. WhiteForest feels like a weak version of Safari Zone, BlackForest feels like a weak version of the Stadiums. What a set of wasted potential, too, because this could have been something neat.

    WhiteForest has the most potential, though, with the Safari Zone aspect. If both versions just had a Safari Zone in that area, possibly being a smaller offline version of DreamWorld, we'd have been on track. The Pokemon available change with the time of day, the season of the year, and your actions in your friends' Entralink. Hell, why not have it work with GameSynch in some way?

    Oh well.. I'll just hoard my Level 5 Happiny then.

    Because Trollfreak loves you... not.

    well you can always beat up Morimoto if you're frustrated, he's ridiculously easy to beat. Out of the three LV 75 battles in the game(the other two are Alder and Cynthia), Morimoto is an absolute pushover, Volcarona makes a joke out of him.
