I look just like Buddy Holly.
As a reminder, Sonicboom is still banned from Little Cup play, despite Magnemite and Voltorb's newfound access to the move.
Only true of Magnet Rise- it learns Signal Beam via Platinum Move Tutor and Magic Coat via HGSS Move Tutor.eric the espeon said:Porygon (Psybeam, Agility, Recover, Lock-On, Tri Attack, Zap Cannon) Magic Coat, Signal Beam and Magnet Rise are illegal with these.
The bold part is critical. You would probably find that the Porygon was Trace before evolving and Download afterward. We've found that the ability change should only happen when the monster evolves. If that isn't the case, then yes, it would be possible to get Gluttony ExtremeSpeed Zigzagoons and Downloading Porygons with Recover, etc..Okay, I know this is an old thread but I've noticed that you all are missing one very important element:
Getting Gluttony on Zigzagoon and Download on Porygon using the Pomeg trick is NOT impossible, because the bit that determines ability is set to 0 or 1 regardless of if it only has one ability or two. For example, say the ability bit in your Porygon's PID is 1. In ADV its ability will obviously be Trace. If you send it to a 4th gen game however, its ability will now be Download. This indeed happened to one of my Porygon a while ago. I was pumped that it was Modest and had Trace, since it would follow that its ability as a Porygon-z would have been Adaptability. Imagine my disappointment when I evolved it to Porygon2 only to see that Download is its ability... I didn't even check before I evolved it because I didn't know about PIDs. Luckily I didn't waste my Dubious Disc. Of course you can't check its ability bit unless you have a way of looking at your save file, or until you send it to gen4.
I tried this, and got weird results; my Lv. 56 (I think; I may be a few levels off there) Breloom with 11 HP and 252 HP EVs actually had its current HP go up when I gave it a Pomeg Berry, rather than into the negatives.Pomeg Glitch does work in Gen IV. It has been tested and done many times here:
For the Pomeg Glitch to work in Gen IV, your Pokemon must drop by 5 HP or more after 1 Pomeg Berry, meaning it must have a minimum of 120 EVs at level 100.
ES Zigzagoon was received as an egg, not at Level 40. Abilities are determined by a Pokemon's PID, which decides if a Pokemon has it's first or second ability. If a Pokemon evolves it's ability is "recalculated" from the PID. ES Zigzagoon can't evolve and can only hatch in gen 3 where gluttony does not exist. Linoone can evolve from ES Ziggy, and get the ability change.ziggy got ES at lvl 40 from a pokemon box gift in gen 3. this one was always pickup because, obviously, there was no alternative at that time. the ability only changes when you evolve, so BD/ES with gluttony is available only to linoone.
