Shiny Pokemon Introduced in generation II, shinies are rare alternate colorations of Pokemon. While every Pokemon has a shiny form, differences in the color palettes of shinies and normal Pokemon can range from being incredibly drastic, such as in Kyogre's pink shiny form to the right, or being incredibly subtle, such as in the case with Bibarel's slightly lighter brown shiny form. However, what shinies do have in common is the fact that they are generally incredibly rare. While Gold and Silver (and lat... Read More

Why do some Pokemon have different stats without any EVs, even if the base stat is the same? Well, that's because Pokemon have genes, too. But how are these represented? In the games, they are called Individual Values, or IVs for short. These numbers range from 0 to 31, for each stat. That makes it virtually impossible to legitimately obtain two Pokemon that have the exact same IVs in all stats (Unless you abuse the RNG). IVs do more than just determine stats though. They also determine what ... Read More

EV TrainingOriginally written by a friend of mine who was unable to post this herself. The Basics When a pokemon is freshly caught or newly hatched, it has 0 EVs. It can max out at 510 EVs. Every 4 EVs give one point to a certain stat. Each stat can only have 255 EVs total. When you give a stat 255 EVs, however, you are wasting 3 EVs that don't make a point. The recommended maximum is 252. So say you have two stats. Attack and Speed. Attack: 252 EVs +Speed: 252 EVs 504 EVs total (6 remaining) ... Read More

Breeding Breeding is a feature added in Generation II that requires you to have a female and male Pokemon (or either gender and a Ditto), and put them in a daycare made for two Pokemon. If your Pokemon are in the same egg group and are of the opposite gender (or if one parent is a Ditto and the other is not Undiscovered), they would eventually make an egg. An egg obtained by breeding hatches into the species of the mother Pokemon and inherits any egg moves from the father before Gen VI. I... Read More

Finding and Training Feebas Feebas is a peculiar little Pokemon. It is the Contest variant of Magikarp, both equally being 'useless' (though Feebas can learn TMs and HMs and gets Egg moves) However, Feebas is prized for its ability to evolve into the beautiful and rare Milotic, as well as it's own rarity. This guide will walk you through finding, catching and evolving your Feebas. Finding Feebas is renowned for being an incredibly difficult Pokemon to find. Since it's 'discovery' in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire,... Read More

Happiness Happiness is a system implemented in Pokemon Gold and Silver that allows your Pokemon to grow to love you through basic interactions. In order for a Pokemon to be 'happy', it must reach a certain level. Once reaching this level (255 is the maximum), some Pokemon will evolve. :D Methodology There are several ways of approaching happiness, some universal, while others depend on the game. Give it a Soothe Bell. (+1 to each of the following events) Capture the Pokemon with a Luxury... Read More

Natures and Stats Natures first appeared in Ruby and Saphire and have, since then, remained an integral factor in the stats of Pokemon. In the original Ruby and Saphire games and later games, certain NPCs allude to the fact that natures can raise stats. For example, one of the TV programs in Diamond and Pearl broadcasts a Rich Boy who tells you that a certain nature raises a certain stat. Not all Pokemon players choose to care about nature; knowing about nature isn't integral to gameplay... Read More
