I read the article about Hidden Power on Serebii already but I'm wondering if the XY games are using the same formula for choosing its type from previous games.

I've been trying to breed a Rotom with good/perfect IVs whose hidden power is ice. I successfully bred several Rotoms with 31/x/31/31/31/31 (even managed to get a perfect 6 IV one) but they're all either dark or dragon, no other type for it. I also bred a few with 31/x/31/31/31/x, and the hidden power on those is ice, but it's not exactly the one that I was looking for. So anyway, is it possible to breed a Rotom with 4-5 (mainly 5) perfect IVs and has ice for a hidden power? Is there a good way on going about doing that?

I have a Rotom with 31/29/31/31/31/30 and has Hidden Power Ice. The 30 Speed was my priority, because if it's 31 it would have been Dark. And attack can be any odd value if the rest is as mine is, at least with an older IV/Hidden Power calculator that is the case.

I am talking about X and Y. Is there nobody to sell them to? Then why do we get so many in restaurants?

No, the maniac who buys 'shrooms and such for insane prices is only in the Gen V games. In X and Y, however, I don't think there are any Item Maniacs. So your only option really is to sell them to the shops. Unfortunately there's no O-Power that increases the amount of money you can sell items for.

So I've heard Pumpkaboos that are Super Sized always hold a miracle seed. If this is true, my question is that if I had a pokemon with compound eyes in the front of my party, would that increase the chances of me finding a Super Sized Pumpkaboo? Or can the smaller ones still hold a seed anyways? I'm planning on chaining for a shiny Pumpkaboo (hopefully Super Sized) soon, so I'd like to plan my party accordingly. Thanks in advance.

Shiny question coming up!
What are the chances for:
Masuda Method
Friend safari
Hordes

Thx ^_^

Masuda Method chance is unknown, only speculative numbers at this point. The other two are the same as the normal encounter rate, 1/4096.

The smaller ones still have a 5% chance of holding the Miracle Seed, so that won't work.

How is this possible? I've been in Normal Friend Safari for 30 minutes and haven't found any pokemons with hidden ability. My first slot has trace-Ralts so I know the abilities of the pokemon ive encountered.

Is the trainer icon of the person who are owning that safari just a black sillhouette with a question mark?
I think for the Pokemon being in that safari to have Hidden ability, you and that person have to been online together at the same time atleast once.

If you have been online at the same time, Then I am not sure :/

You do not have to be online at the same time to find hidden abilities. I was in a safari where the face wasn't there because we hadn't linked up in a long time, but I was still able to find a Floett with Symbiosis

I think you have to be online together AT LEAST ONCE but not necessarily while you're in the friend safari for hidden abilities and the 3rd pokemon to show.

Is there a way to know when I've got max Style in Lumiose City other than Game-Syncing after every big Style-inducing activity and hoping I see the "Lumiose Luminary" medal on the PGL website?

If you haven't yet bought the Mega Stones in the Stone Emporium, they'll cost 10000.

I know, I said that you had to be online together atleast ONCE. Not that you have to be online at the same time everytime to get Hidden abilities :p
But that's weird... Because everytime when I had a friend who was uknown in FriendSafari, I never got a hidden ability, not before The friend Safari had the image of the trainer icon, then the hidden abilities were easy to find. Maybe its diffrent to people or something, but my experience was that I never got Hidden abilities until I had the friend image confirmed in the FriendSafari or I was just very unlucky.

My experience was/is that the third pokemon and hidden ablility shows with the image.

I moved one of my games to as different DS and back again...not knowing that my safaris would get messed up...all the friend images disappeared but a lot of the safaris stilled showed the pokemon that could be found for that safari. If there was still and image for the 3rd pokemon I would still see it even though my friends face was not showing with the safari.

Calm is ideal if you want a defensive-oriented Florges.
Modest/Timid is ideal if you want an offensive-oriented Florges.

Ok, so was wondering...isn't there something you keep in mind when using having a substitute user. Like you want to keep the hp either odd or is it even so you get the most out of using it which would be four uses?
