Is the gift Munchlax shiny locked?

It's quite possible for it to be Shiny locked. As far as can remember, all non-shiny event Pokémon in the Since Diamond and Pearl have been locked to be not shiny. I've not seen any Evidence to suggest that you can get a Shiny.

Is the gift Munchlax shiny locked?

Wait again..? Give it some time, it some times may take some time to come up with a reasonable answer, or locate the info we need to answer it.

If I breed a Sneasel with a Moon Ball Weavile, would the ball pass down the offsprings? Or would you not count that as the same 'species' ? Even thougg they both are sharp claw pokemon.

I don't think so. Even though they're in the same evolution line, they still count as different species. Correct me if I'm wrong with this.

Species is Pokémon-specific, in this context. Two Sneasel are of the same species - a Sneasel and a Weavile are not.

Unrelated, but your pink text is very difficult to read on the standard color scheme. You might want to stop adding the color tags.

Species doesn't matter in breeding, evolutionary line does. If the Weavile in the Moon Ball is female, then it will pass on the ball to its offspring. If the Weavile is male and you breed with a Ditto, then I don't believe that it will since poke balls are passed down on the mother's line.

Now it passes.

And take two:

Does anyone know if I'm just really unlucky when it comes to getting 4 or 5-star anythings for Festival Plaza? I'm at rank 153 now and only twice or thrice have I ever been offered anything that is 5 stars. And in the last 20 or so times I've leveled up, I've only once been offered something that is 4 stars.

I'm on Sun btw if that means anything.

Also while I'm at it, where do I find the Ice and Psychic Z-crystals?

Psychuim Z is in the desert.
Icium Z is in the Ice Cave right before the league.

Quick couple of questions:
1) Is there any chance whatsoever for Island Scan Pokemon to have their Hidden Ability?
2) Can SOS-only Pokemon have their HA?

1)No.
2)Yes. Keep in mind, in cases of Pokemon that aren't part of the same evolution line(For example, Mareanie being called when battling Corsola), if you knock out the original Pokemon(Corsola in this case), then the chain ends(Mareanie wont call anything).

I was told that you can get a Dusk stone from the Flea Market found inside the Community Center in Malie City. But no one there is selling any stones. Any idea if this is true, or is there only one Dusk stone per game? (Not including stones found in PokePelago)

Only one stone from the Youngster per game. If you already bought it, that's it.

It's a Shiny Stone in Sun, and a Dusk Stone in Moon.

You can't rely on Sophocles to provide you with the high-leveled facilities you want. You'll have to ask every guest in Festival Plaza you haven't met before. People are generous. If there's something high in demand, like a 5-star Rare Kitchen or dye shop, it's fairly likely they'll put it at the top.

That being said, you can get more Dusk Stones by upgrading Isle Aphun in Poké Pelago at least twice. This will unlock expeditions that return stones and crystalline items. What you get is random though, so you can't rely on it giving you items you want. I've obtained at least 7 Ice Stones from it, for instance, and only one Dusk Stone.

Based on what I can see, Hard Stones are the most common item, followed by the non-evolutionary items (the Oval Stone, Float Stone, and Everstone), then the Evolution Stones you can buy (Fire Stone, Thunder Stone, Leaf Stone, Water Stone), then the Evolution Stones you can't buy (Ice Stone, Shiny Stone, Moon Stone, Sun Stone, Dawn Stone, Dusk Stone), and the Light Clay is the rarest item.

Berry piles with Crabrawler encounters will guarantee you one rare Berry in addition to the usual three. You would need extreme luck in encountering Crabrawlers in Poni Island since they're rare.
