    Is Foul Play's damage also affected by the user's and the target's physical stats?

    Well, what it does is attack with the OPPONENT'S physical Attack stat, instead of its own.

    Including the att stat of the user?

    It doesn't. Foul Play damage is based off the target's physical Attack and physical Defense stat.

    Does a receiving date of event pokes doesn't correspond with the dates of serebii's index (but have the right ribbon) mean that they are hacked?
  6. Excitable Boy

    Excitable Boy is a metaphor

    it's based on the date on the system receiving the gift, so the date can be whatever without meaning anything

    So basically the only way to know if an event is hacked is whether the poke has the ribbon or not?

    Pretty much, and even so hacking in the Ribbon and the corresponding Meeting flag isn't hard.

    Even if the pokemon is legit, that ribbon has to be hacked out so it can be Wonder Traded/GTS'd.

    Yes. I'm speaking of event pokes that are received through regular trades and whether there is a certain way for knowing whether they were hacked or not

    If you get it from a Link Trade, the only way to know it was hacked is if something is noticeably amiss. Wrong moves (out of what it can legally learn), wrong ball, wrong/no ribbon, OT is different, nicknamed, encounter thingy is wrong, if it's shiny (depends on event), just so happens to have Pokerus and 6IVs, full EV spread, competitive moveset, competitive held item, and its recommended nature.

    Assuming everything seems to check out. Then the only way to know for sure is if proof is provided. If there is no surefire proof, but the event looks perfect otherwise, it still doesn't mean it's hacked for sure. Then it all depends on whether you're okay with just the latter circumstance.

    Thank you
    Why doesn't nown have a level when it appears on showdown?
  13. Mega Altaria

    Because it is Lv 100. Pokémon in Showdown that have a Level of 100 won't have their levels displayed while they're in battle.

    Do paralyzed pokes have higher chances to be flinched?
  15. dirkac

    dirkac I smash your Boxes.

    No, they do not.
  16. Nutter t.KK

    Nutter t.KK can Mega Evolve!

    No, but effectively yes.

    No, the chance of a flinch will be same.

    However, Since to inflict Flinch your Pokémon would need to be first, the Speed dropped introduced by Paralysis will mean that the Pokémon intended to be flinch will be slow enough to be hit before it moved.

    Pokémon like Serene Grace Togekiss where known for the "Para-Flinch" combo. It's gotten slightly weaker due to the changes to Paralysis. (Link to a Smogon page about this move set: http://www.smogon.com/dex/sm/pokemon/togekiss/ou/ )

    Silly question but it's about the look upon the starts 3DS theme. Are the constellations used in the theme based on real life constelations or are they made-up for the theme?

    Which Pokemon does each trainer see as their very best friend in the world? As in their "follow me" Pokemon.
    Example: Ash and Pikachu
  19. dirkac

    Most are based off of real constellations, with many of the Pokémon there also referring to real constellations.

    Some, like Lunala, aren't representative of one specific constellaiton and are only present due to their connection to space.

    No way to know what the main is of every single Trainer. You could think of it as just whoever is their highest Levelled Pokémon, or has been shown to have a bond with, but there is just no way to know and is too broad a question.

    Could you help identify which are based on real-life constellations? The only ones I could guess are:

    Machoke carrying Seviper - Ophiucus (?)
    Murkrow - Corvus/Crow
    Lycaronc - Wolf (?)

    Define "each trainer"? Are you refering to the characters from the anime? From the games?
