    Actually, in Colosseum you get the Pokemon immediately after you snag it. But in a rematch there's no shadow Pokemon.

    I know, I tried cheating the system to get more than one GSC starter. The second guy only had Grimer and Spoink.

    Yes, I know I'm late for this.

    So, they're set when I beat the E4, which is basically before I start the game? Dang dude, you must get through the main story awfully fast!

    Well, what I've heard is basically you collect the nugget from the rocket guy, lose on purpose, and then you go back to him, and you can get another nugget. Repeat as many times as you like.

    Okay, so I'm trying to catch a Mewtwo with enough speed to always outrun base 125 speed Pokemon. After checking the stats, I figure that a wild Mewtwo at lv70 will need a speed stat of at least 222 (+speed nature, 22 speed IV) in order to accomplish this, so I grabbed an Electrode with 221 speed and have placed him in the front of my party as my one-under guy.

    Assuming a 16% chance for a +speed nature and a 31% chance for a 22+ IV, it seems I should have a 5% chance of encountering a Mewtwo fast enough to meet this criteria. However, I have soft-resetted at least 500 times over the course of several weeks, and not once have I encountered a Mewtwo that could outspeed this Electrode.

    So before I pick Fire Red back up to try again, I was wondering if anybody could answer the following:

    1) Are my calculations/probabilities off?
    2) Is there perhaps something screwy going on with the RNG that is diminishing my chances?
    3) Or do I just have the worst luck ever?

    I really hope somebody can answer these:

    • Does the PRNG work on fake versions of Emerald? I bought Emerald but got a fake one. Will this mean the PRNG won't work?
    • Will this fake version be able to trade with FireRed/ Ruby?
    • Would it be worth playing through FireRed to trade with my Emerald? And how long would it take approximately?

    Before EV training, is it ok to put my pokemon in the Day Care to level them up before training?
    Would it affect the stats in any way?

    You're not taking the 10% stat boost from badges into account. You should be using a Pokémon with 201 Speed.
    1. It should so; I don't see why not.
    2. Yes, I believe so.
    3. If you have Ruby, you should use that. Otherwise, if FR is your only real game, then yes.
    Since the Day Care doesn't affect EVs, it should be fine. Be aware that leaving them in the Day Care too long may cause them to forget egg moves or TMs.

    Does putting an Everstone on a female to transfer nature work in Emerald?

    I'm trying to get a Breloom with Spore, Focus Punch, Swords Dance and Hidden Power. This is for Ruby, but I have access to FireRed and Sapphire as well. What makes this challenging is that I want to use this pokemon for Battle Tower, level 50.

    Spore means I need to breed two Shroomish w/ Spore, so the baby will have Spore. Swords Dance is from the Move Tutor. Hidden Power from TM, and the right IV's.

    But Focus Punch is the problem. I can get it from a Vigoroth, but the problem that is blocking me is Shroomish doesn't learn Focus Punch. Am I sol from getting Focus Punch here? If that's the case, any suggestions on what to learn instead?

    According to Bulbapedia, it does.

    Shroomish cannot have Focus Punch through any method, breeding included. However, Focus Punch is TM01, so just use that on your Breloom once it's evolved.
