I don't know if this is the right place for it but: when will we have the tiers set for X/Y gen? I imagine we need to wait a while to see the usage of the new pokemon and the old with new abilities/items, but do we have some estimate?
Well, I'm not exactly someone who speaks for the tiering council, but I'd imagine that once all of the new data has been programmed in to Pokemon Showdown, there'll then be some kind of "starting point," in that all of those that are generally assumed to imbalance the tiers will be put on an early ubers list of some kind, and then there'll be a couple of weeks of them sifting the usage data around and letting enough data be produced so that a fair judgement can be made. Following that, I'd guess we'll start to see some suspect tests, by which point we'll have the beginnings of the early 6th gen meta laid out. That's just how I'm guessing it'll work anyway; bear in mind that all the data was dataminable in previous games, so we're already a couple of weeks behind previous gens in just researching how new (and old) pokemon work and what moves they get, etc.I don't know if this is the right place for it but: when will we have the tiers set for X/Y gen?

Some of the individual research threads are testing for egg moves for the particular species. See if the Pokemon you're interested in has any developments.Is there a thread somewhere researching new egg moves?
Breed it with Tyrunt/Tyrantrum, which learns Stealth Rock by level up.Is there any way to get an Aron with stealth rock in this game?
Males with the hidden ability have a chance of passing it on when they breed with a DittoI have a quick question that I've received conflicting answers on from my google search.
There is a rumor than gen 6 will now allow males to pass along their hidden abilities. Is this a false rumor?
I've heard a lot of different variations: that it is extremely rare for it to pass it on, but possible; that it won't work with Ditto, etc.
Does anyone know?
Ah, I see. I can definitely understand why there is a bit of confusion. Is the male's chance significantly lower?Males with the hidden ability have a chance of passing it on when they breed with a Ditto
Males with the hidden ability breeding with a female without the hidden ability will not pass on the hidden ability.
Females with the hidden ability always have a chance of passing it on.
Possibly. In my experience, I think males have a 50% chance of passing on the ability. Females MAY be higher, but I've got no concrete numbers nor proof.Ah, I see. I can definitely understand why there is a bit of confusion. Is the male's chance significantly lower?
And thank you for the response.
It has been confirmed by the research thread.So I've been hearing on and off that Pixelate increases the moves it converts to Fairy BP by 30%. Can anyone confirm this to be true?
All the Pokemon here. In addition, all the Pokemon that can breed with the Pokemon there and have Stealth Rock as an egg move. For example: Tyranitar and Aggron can get it by breeding with Tyrantrum. Also, Pokemon in the Field egg group like Mamoswine that breed with Smeargle.Who can get Steath Rock prior to December?
