Still gotta catch 'em all!
Got a few question regarding this method:
1. When you are traded a foreign pokemon, how do you find its foreign pokedex entry? I was recently traded a Japanese Ditto and I don't see where its foreign entry is. (I had an english Ditto beforehand, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.) By the way, do you even need its foreign dex entry for this to work?
2. Also, I've heard that doing this method doesn't allow you to give your pokemon an everstone and have the nature pass on. Is this true? So, for example, say I give my adamant, Japanese Ditto an everstone and put it in with some other non-Japanese pokemon, if I breed until I get a shiny, will that shiny definetely be adamant, or will it just be random as usual?
Thanks in advance.
1. If you have Diamond/Pearl not every pokemon has a foreign dex entry. If you have Platinum, then on their dex page at the bottom there will be a little tab that you can select to switch to the foreign language. But, you don't need the dex entry for this to work.
2. That is correct. This method doesn't allow for the passing of natures with the everstone. The natures will always be random when you breed two pokemon from different languages.
