(Sorry. I thought I had.)
Cloning? I thought you needed an Action Replay or Pokesav or something for that.

Re: Simple Questions / Simple Answers (Gen 5)

@Stratago; People put lv. 9 and under Reshy/Zeky on the GTS because they like trolling people and/or they don't want the Pokemon they put on to be lost. Since lv. 9 and under Reshiram/Zekrom don't exist.

@Rick Perry; That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure, so I didn't try to correct you. ^^;

Re: Simple Questions / Simple Answers (Gen 5)

Is there anyway to make a Pokemon's Name who was transferred from a 3rd or 4th Gen game correct? ie I have a Shiny Charizard I got from my HeartGold way back and his name is "CHARIZARD" when I transferred him... But then I noticed names in 5th Gen are like "Charizard" now.

I know it's not that important, but my OCD says otherwise... Is there a way to "fix" this problem in 5th Gen?

Unfortunately, no. It's not possible.

The only "fix" I can think of is if the Pokemon can evolve, then its name won't be in caps anymore (ie. SQUIRTLE evolved into Wartortle!).

But that's probably not helpful, since Charizard is done evolving.

Re: Simple Questions / Simple Answers (Gen 5)

...That doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, but I guess I just don't think it's cool to troll the GTS. (Yay?)
Thanks.

Re: Simple Questions / Simple Answers (Gen 5)

About how many eggs do you have to hatch to get a shiny one? I have hatched fifty eggs but no shiny. And is there a different coloration between normal eggs and shiny eggs?

There's no definite answer for how many eggs it takes. Masuda Method (breeding two foreign Pokémon) has a 1/1366 chance; it can take as much as one hundred eggs, or it can take one egg. Normal method is 1/8192.
There's no difference between normal eggs and shiny eggs.

Amulet Coin. The Pokemon holding it needs to be used in the battle to get the doubled prize money. Alternatively, there is Luck Incense, which has the same effect.

Re: Simple Questions / Simple Answers (Gen 5)

How come I can't enter the 2012 Spring Friendly Tornament? It says that there is no tornament going on right now.

Where is the Name Rater in Unova?

Re: Simple Questions / Simple Answers (Gen 5)

@Shiny Shinx; The Unova name rater is in Castelia City, a little south of the entrance to the desert, in one of the left buildings.

Re: Simple Questions / Simple Answers (Gen 5)

Would I be able to land a shiny Whismur in Rusturf Tunnel after a while, or does the whole increased chances from encountering the same pokemon only work with the radar in D/P?

Re: Simple Questions / Simple Answers (Gen 5)

@cccp; Each Whismur you found would have a 1/8912 chance of being shiny. So no, you can only chain in D/P/P with the Poke Radar

The only time an egg will appear differently is when it's a Manaphy egg.
