I am sure there was a thread about Berries somewhere, but considering so many people use the word Berry across the forums it is almost impossible to find. Even in Orange Islands alone there is a lot of usage of the word. What sort of Guide would you be wanting to make?
How to find/obtain them, and what sort of applications (such as using them in the Juice Shoppe) they have.
 
I'd keep in mind that we're getting a new gen in literally one month and a half, so if the guide is specific to Gen 6 it might not be that worth it.
 
I need help with friend safaris. I look up friend codes and put them in my 3ds, but when I start up Pokemon Y, I don't see anyone under friends on the PSS. Why is that?

You need the other person to also add your FC. To get the third slot in Friend Safaris, you also both have to be online in Pokémon XY at the same time at least once.
 
In the Battle Maison/Battle Tower, will the AI switch out a pokemon with the Natural Cure ability if you Paralyze it? I remember once that the AI switched out it's Roserade in order to heal it from Sleep in Platinum Tower, but I'm curious if he would do the same for Paralyze/Poison/Burn.


edit: After encountering Natural Cure Starmie a couple of times, (I used a Trace Gardevoir) and paralyzing it, it never switched back to heal itself. So I think it's safe to say that the AI will switch a pokemon with Natural Cure out if it's asleep, but not, or less likely when it is Paralyzed.

Is there anything I should know before trying to soft reset . Mystery Gift? I want to make sure my Volcanion has the correct nature.

Yeah. Reset over anything with less-than near perfect HP, (you can see it right from the menu, and you're guaranteed at least three flawless IV's every time) and there's no way to guarantee the nature for Pokemon obtained via Mystery Gift. You might also want to have a few things handy that you can do absentmindedly while soft-resetting, (like watch TV or a movie) as even if you're just trying to get the desired nature... you could be there awhile.

Also, don't ask "Keep or toss?" here if Speed is imperfect, the boosted stat is imperfect, and/or if the other relevant stats are less than 26+. (some may have stricter standards) You'll always be told to "toss" in these cases, so you may as well just reset and keep trying.

Ultimately though, it's up to you to determine if you're satisfied with your reset. Good luck!

Is there a forum or discord server or anything that I can use to find people who want to battle in smogon formats on cartridge? I'm rarely on my pc to play showdown.

That depends. If you want to use it for anything competitive, ask in the Wi-Fi section. For ingame purposes, it's as fine as can be. Also, in two months you'll have the option of transferring it to Sun/Moon where you can fix imperfect IVs with ease.
 
A Male Shiny Charmander

So first off I am new here so bare with me. I have a simple(kinda) request. I just want to know if I can get someone to trade me a male shiny Charmander with a recommended nature for a special attack based Charizard Y build. I believe a Modest or Timid nature is recommended? I'm a casual player who just likes to use this site for stat recommendations

what are the chances of the pokemon amie in-battle effects happening?

Are they set to be the same as the preexisting focus band/scope lens/brightpowder/shed skin/lucky egg etc?
