  1. Basculin

    Just a minor note: If you transfer a Reckless Blue-striped Basculin from BW, it'll be changed to Rock Head in XY.
  2. Battle Mechanics Research

    It only affects a single ally.
  3. Battle Mechanics Research

    Exactly as you would expect: the target's Special Defense is raised one stage. That's it.
  4. Pokémon XY Data Collection

    I did not see this posted anywhere, but the description for the ability Oblivious now says, "Keeps the Pokemon from being infatuated or falling for taunts." Seems they finally gave Oblivious an upgrade.
  5. Pokémon XY General Discussion

    A leaker on 4chan's /vp/ has clarified that there are no dual-typed attacks; he used the example of a Fighting-type attack that gets STAB when used by a Fighting-type Pokemon, but its weakness and resistances are calculated as if it were a Flying-type attack, kind of like Psyshock using the...
  6. 5th Gen Database and Moveset Error compilation

    The thing about Basculin-B and the Rock Head ability is it cannot have Egg moves, it can only be Adamant nature, and its IVs can only be 20/31/20/20/20/20. EDIT: It's been fixed in Black 2/White 2, so now Blue-striped Basculin can have Rock Head naturally.
  7. Meloetta

    You have to re-use Relic Song every time it switches in.
  8. Hustle

    Victory Star really does not work in singles?!
  9. Keldeo [available from June 23rd to August 31st]

    Justified is wasted on it because it's a special attacker. :(
  10. Black & White Battle Subway Records (now with gen. 4 records!)

    I've put hundreds of hours into this and cannot get past 48 wins, which I got to only once. I just keep getting haxed to death! It's so frustrating. My latest loss was in doubles. I had a full-health Registeel with five Curses and Leftovers left against a Ferrothorn and Escavalier. Escavalier...

    I was training Wormadam today on Route 14 where there are wild Drifblim that know Explosion, but Anticipation was not activating. I played around with the ability with Skill Swap, but it never activated. Anyone else experience this? EDIT: A few more details: Anticipation activated like...
  12. Floatzel

    Why is it Hasty natured? That's not a mixed set.
  13. Nidoqueen

    Sludge Wave is slightly more powerful than Sludge Bomb, so that'd be better, unless you're going for the higher poison chance.
  14. Dustox

    Minor correction: Dustox does not resist Bug 4x, as Bug does not resist itself.
  15. Excadrill

    Yeah, only getting Metal Claw for Steel STAB is unfortunate; Iron Head would rule.
  16. Creative (and good) Movesets (READ THE OP FIRST)

    White Herb only activates when stat modifiers go below 0. A +2 Leaf Storm will bring the modifier down to 0, then another Leaf Storm will bring it down to -2 and then activate White Herb.

    I've been using this Krookodile set to some success and love it: Krookodile@ Hard Stone Intimidate Adamant 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 4 HP - Earthquake - Fling - Stone Edge - Thief Hard Stone powers up Stone Edge and makes Fling a 100 BP (150 after STAB) attack. Then Thief the foe's...

    Dig has 80 BP, so it's not boosted.
  19. Landorus

    Damn Troll Freak making Fly its only (outside of ubiquitous Hidden Power) Flying STAB. Same with Metal Claw being Doryuuzu's only Steel STAB.
