    Anyone have a Lure Ball, Rough Skin Gible / Gabite / Garchomp?

    To the shiny Trapinch that just Struggled himself into oblivion around 250 turns into my chain -- you have no heart, and I am displeased.

    I've got no experience using Buzzwole so I can't say, but I just wanted to drop a comment about choice items. They can be difficult to get used to, but they're honestly really great. When I started playing Pokemon I avoided them like the plague, but now I usually have /at least/ a banded Pokemon on every team. They just require a lot of prediction to use - you have to read swaps and stuff accurately, and also have a Pokemon who you can swap into to sponge hits for whoever is choiced. It's worth it in the end, especially since you can punch through checks if they swap in to a coverage move.

    That's all; not saying you have to use a band, just wanted to say why I like them. I used to think of them as a liability but now they're probably my favourite group of items save for lefties.

    Question about Gen 6 breeding:

    If you have a male Pokemon with his Hidden Ability, it won't pass down if you breed with a Ditto, right?

    It can, just at a 20% chance of inheritance I think. This applies to genderless pokes as well.

    That was true in gen 5, but in gen 6, males and genderless Pokemon can pass their hidden ability down if bred with Ditto, and it's about the same 60% chance as a female with its hidden ability breeding with a compatible partner. (from my experience, anyway) The offspring won't inherit the ball, however.

    Might be a dumb question in the wrong place, but how do you change the name of your thread? I'm in the process of a revival.

    Why do people like shiny Azumarill in a Fast Ball? It's not an Electric so it doesn't fit thematically. And if you wanted to go for the yellow colour, Level Ball would look better no? I still see Fast Ball more than anything and I'm wondering why.

    maybe the color scheme of the ball itself? it would make sense if that was the answer but i don't understand it quite either.

    Level Ball's yellow isn't that obvious in-game whereas Fast Ball's orange and yellow is quite obvious is my guess. But ultimately it boils down to personal preference. (granted, Fast Ball's theme is speed, not Electric types. Though Azumarill's not really fast nor has it ever been likely to flee battle)

    It's not that obvious during the animation or are you talking about its sprite? Cause Fast Ball is orange. Also, I forgot that it's about speed lol. I was thinking Electric because of the lightning bolt on the ball.

    Fast Ball is obviously orange, but with yellow bolts. Level Ball's sprite tends to look more beige than yellow. Regardless, perhaps you could see the fact that Level Ball is less common as an opportunity to make yours stand out a bit more from the crowd, if indeed you want to breed for a shiny Azumarill to trade around or even just to battle with.

    I'm looking for two things (in different gens), but they're both purely spitbacks.

    Gen 6: Sassy Bronzor with a zero Speed IV (let me know if it's HP type is Ice)

    Gen 7: Relaxed Tangela with Leech Seed and an even Speed IV (for HP Ice)

    Okay the sprite is orange but the ball in-game is clearly red. Anyway, that's a good point. I will make the way for Level Ball Azumarill. Thanks, Detective Barricade ;)
