    Excitable Boy is a metaphor

    If you own a 4th Generation game, you can find a Ditto on there. To catch it, simply switch a Magikarp into it Turn 1, then throw either a Dusk Ball or a Repeat Ball. Ditto will copy Magikarp's catch rate on those games, so that should work.

    A paralyzed Ditto at full HP has a decent chance of capture with a Dusk Ball. I think it's over 75%, it's certainly over 50. Often the first one gets it, or else it takes two or three. Of course once in a while there's a stubborn one. If you must catch in the day then I believe Repeat Balls are your best alternative.

    So I just have my Sychroniser (an Elgyem) know only Thunder Wave. That way the Dittos can't hurt me (until they Struggle, but most are caught first).

    Not really sure where the best place to ask this is: do people on Serebii trading normally consider cloning legit?

    (BTW, the Magikarps I'm currently offering aren't cloned, they're ones from my breeding that I decided not to use myself.)

    You're not going to get a consensus on this. It's entirely personal preference.

    Some people are alright with it while others are not. Basically if you want to trade something that has been cloned, you should make note of it so the person is aware.

    But as far as I've noticed there is no official "no-cloning" rule when it comes to trading.

    I found a shiny Jigglypuff in the wild, what do I do to find my secret ID?

    Or you could just not tell them and they'll never know unless you give them more than one of the same clone.

    How do I NOT have a SINGLE inhabitant in my Black City? I got there after beating the Pokemon league and there's not a soul in the city ( besides some backpacker in the Pokemon Center). As far as I understood as long as you don't fiddle around with the clock when you beat the Pokemon League you SHOULD have at least SOME people in your city. I don't even have a single building I can do into. I really have NOOO idea what's up with this. Any suggestions?

    How long did you take to get there from starting your game?

    Probably something like 60 hours or more. My current time put into the game is: 87:55. I beat the Elite 4 like a week and a half ago and when I got to Black City NOBODY was there o.o.
    It's also at the lowest level of development

    It goes by days, not by hours, how many days did you take?
    I got the same problem with my black city, i took about a week and a half and there were only a few trainers left..

    Well lets see. Whenever Pokemon came out in North America till last week. So like a month and a half. But as far as I knew it was the longer it took the more people would be there when you got there?

    Ok, did buy white a while ago and im in the freaking big city and I really want the dark pokemon zorua... how do i get it? what do i need to do?

    Nope thats not how it works, the longer you take the more people leave.
    Its based on points i believe. They lost points every day, and the only way to keep them is to battle them every day, as that gives them points. Having that in mind, taking a month and a half to get to them will have them all having lost too many points to stay.

    The only way to get Zorua is if you have transferred Celebi over from HG/SS then talk to the girl in one of the buildings who is reading a story to what seems to be a lost child.
