Note that you would actually need to move 8 EVs into Speed, because of how stats work at level 50.
To the best of everyone's knowledge has Nationals ever conflicted with the dates of Comic-Con?
I don't believe their dates have had any issues with Comic-Con in the past.
Assuming you're referring to San Diego International Comic-Con, the answer is no. Nationals have been on the last weekend of June for 3/4 years and the first weekend in July the other year. AFAIK SDCC has always been on a later weekend in July.
SDCC is typically the third weekend of July.
didnt know where else to post this, but....
why is it that i see a strategy-dex spec for an adamant hitmontop? how it evolves is by having the same atk and def stats at 20. If that is not a mistake then can someone please explain to me how to get a hitmontop with adamant nature? the reason why i ask here is that it was the vgc 2012 strategy-dex
If you want your Adamant Tyrogue to evolve at level 20 into a Hitmontop, just simply give it 4 Irons(The Defense boosting Vitamin) to give it 40 Defense EVs to even out the Attack and Defense. If the EV spread that you want doesn't need the extra Defense EVs, simply give it 4 Defense dropping stat berries(Qualot Berry).
thank you so much. do i give it the iron right at 20 or at 1 if i am breeding a tyrogue
At Level 1
Keep in mind you'll also have to get it to level 20 without interfering with the attack or defence EVs (although small changes probably won't effect it), and depending on what IVs it has (assuming you're not RNGing/getting perfect stats) the stats might be different as well.
Personally I've always found it easier to just fight Pokémon that give it attack and defence depending on what you need to bring up until they're equal, then let it evolve, and remove the spare EVs using berries/join avenue.
Speaking of Hitmontop, I assume it's impossible to make it learn Sucker Punch in a 5th Gen game ? Can someone confirm that for me please ?
That is correct. It was a HeartGold/SoulSilver tutor only.
No, it is available in BW2 now
Sucker punch is not a tutor move in bw2. You have to tutor it in the 4th gen games.
Question: Is it allowed to have a pokemon with mind reader and a OHKO move?
Yes, but in a rule set where Protect is on nearly every Pokemon, it's not too useful.
Though that reminds me of a spanish guy 2 years ago that got trolled by a Guillotine Haxorus... Hit twice in a row lol.
Question: When will the last chance qualifiers take place? Or will they not occur at all?
Last chance qualifiers (AKA "The grinder") always take place the day before the main event of the world championships, so it will be August 9th.
Ok. Where will it take place this year (2013, I mean)?
Worlds is in Vancouver, Canada at the Convention Center.
Which both is cool and sucky at the same time. I used to work in one of the towers in Coal Harbor. There isn't really any restaurants within a 10-20 minute walk.
I meant where the last chance qualifiers take place in.
Rogue, Steamworks, Exp Bar just off the top of my head. Food court literally across the street. Also pretty close to anything in Gastown or Robson.
This is an absolute godsend after Waikoloa.
Bonus: Best gelato in the world as determined by the Florence Gelato Festival a block or so away.
The LCQ takes place in the same venue as the World Championships.
How long are breaks between the action for competitors? Sure, one could mosey to Robson or Gastown but I know few people can huff it in 15 minutes (each way.) I would not call EXP Bar within walking distance of the Convention Center for short breaks. Rogue is do-able. Steamworks is okay if not busy as can be.
Are you talking about that Gelato place on the corner of Burrard and Cordova? I have been wandering how their's is.
For long breaks there are plenty of places one can hit up. Sad news for any games out there. Vancouver's downtown core doesn't have any video game/board game/hobby shops. There's a bitchin' comic shop on Granville.
For those traveling looking for a cheap stay... whatever you do, do not pick the Cambie Hostel. Just trust me on that one.
I have been reviewing things for the Dream Radar and Entree Forest. Is it possible for a Nature-locked Entree Forest Pokémon? It might be Timer0 hits but I am trying to learn to RNG my first Entree Forest Pokémon. I just keep getting the same Nature (not one that I want.)
(I am having issues getting a Nurse into my Join Avenue to assist with hatching of eggs. Does anyone have any hints or suggestions?)
