The floette is just leftover from the ingame story, they had to have a model of it. The two vivillion patterns (especially the pokeball one) will probably be event vivillions where they advertise it as an exclusive pattern.

I think that last one is just data from AZ's Floette. Maybe the fact you can battle it indicates a future event where you befriend it after AZ dies due to using up his life energy after all that time? I still don't get where the hell he went after the parade.

 

I agree with Lep that the Vivillons (especially the Poke Ball pattern one) are event patterns and not regional ones.

I'm really lacking in rock coverage and priority right now. I play in the pokebank OU tier since that's the tier that will be standard once pokebank comes out. Any suggestions (prob gonna give roserade lefties instead of orb)

So people have figured out some of the parent -> children IV passing is set before the egg is even given to you and now you (if you have a decent stock of IV spreads of that egg group or dittos) you can breed near perfect IVs in a third of the time.  Made getting honedge 31/31/31/xx/31/0 easier.

 

And for your team, if you have sylveon with pixelate you should use a normal move (I think hypervoice might be an egg move?); if not may as well use the other ability.

I think you can also either change gyrados or gengar moveset or change out roserade or heatran to get your coverage/priority.

Gyra is currently my go to counter to talonflame, intimidate is great at stopping that stupid bird from putting on a long sweep. Gengar honestly isn't pulling his weight, so I'll prob swap him for something like an orb'ed terrakion with quick attack/stone edge/close combat/xscissor, unless someone has a better suggestion. 

 

As for sylveon, I should just swap his ability to cute charm instead, it was something I overlooked. I've had a lot of success with his kit so far so I want to keep it. If moonblast wasn't so strong I might consider using a normal type attack for the added power, however moonblast has a 30% chance to lower special attack so I can't justify using anything else.

 

Heatran provides me with fire/poison immunity for anything aimed at sylveon/aggron. Aggron really is a powerhouse. Only his lack of leftovers hurts him, and that's why I have a wish passer. 

 

Roserade is a very important grass coverage that my team lacked ( I got walled by a gastrodon in my first game with this team), immunity to spore, and can get rid of toxic spikes should they come up (haven't seen them yet though). 

 

Thinking about Gengar now though, losing him means I lose ground/fighting immunity, which are good opportunities to switch in. Hmm.

Apparently people have been glitching wondertrade and sending out bad eggs so use cautiously. If you happen to get one all you can do for now is isolate it by itself in it's own box. It kind of ruined my plans to trade away 3 boxes of things today.

Bullshit. Bad Egg cases have been documented ever since release date, and if this was true, there wouldn't only be three people affected by it, it would be dozens, hundreds maybe.

Is it bad that I haven't played Pokemon since the Silver version? Looks quite interesting with these new versions, do they work with the first generation DS? I have a first generation from 2003 and can't really afford a new DS right now.

Any DS game can work with that I think, just lower quality or something, but X/Y is 3DS only. Not sure what the 3DS prices are now in your country but 2DS is a cheap alternative if you don't mind the horribly ugly looks of it.

 

The last time I played a Pokemon game before buying White was Sapphire back in somewhere that same year. I didn't have much an issue transitioning personally.

 

Anyways, about to wrap up the Team Flare plot on my Y Locke (Only 2 deaths, woo-hoo). Azumarill is making me wonder why the hell I even picked Froakie in my X game in the first place.

Because it's a trickster ninja Water/Dark type?

Same reason ALG picked Chespin, and I plan on picking Fennekin once I get my Kalos game?

When catching Pokemon, I for some reason always rapidly tap A and B does it make a difference?

It makes your buttons wear down faster, but in game sadly no.

Whyyyyyy did they make Game Sync work like it does

 

Perform a Game Sync in order to transfer your Pokémiles to the PGL, buy a metric [bleep]ton of Rare Candies, then like 3-4 minutes later, try to perform another Game Sync to transfer the Rare Candies back, Rejected! "Game Sync has ended because the server was busy" over and over.

Also bought Pokemon X today via digital download, since hardcopy wont arrive in AUS for another 3 weeks. Doing the challenge where you capture 6 pokemon, wonder trade each one until you have 6 unique pokemon, then finish the elite 4 with those pokemon.

If I make eggs in Y while simultaneously Soft Reseting in SoulSilver, FireRed and LeafGreen, I should be able to get that fairly quickly.

The problem is that I only have two hands D:

I just bought a 3DS/XL and Pokemon X. It's my first Nintendo Handheld and Pokemon game since a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow. I know there's been a ton of changes to the meta game, can anyone point me in the direction of some helpful resources?

The new shiny rate is double what it used to be, so about 1/4000. Which makes masuda method about 1/700 ( a little less, cbf grabbing the exact number). These numbers are coming from the same guys who found the 3 event pokes.
