But the problem is that the Mystery Dungeon games operate on a turn-based style in which you always move first. In the past games they had no use for the speed stat, so there simply wasn't one. But one exists in this game, so I'm curious as to what it does.

February? Dang, you have my sympathies...

What exactly does the speed stat do in Super Mystery Dungeon?
I know that in Pokemon Conquest Speed was a minor accuracy/evasion modifier, but I don't think anyone's figured this out yet. Accuracy does not work the same in PMD as it does in the main series.

Does anyone know how to get giga drain in Super Mystery Dungeon? I have a Chikorita, and I just got to Lively Town so I know I can get energy ball as a TM, but I really want giga drain. Thanks

Chikorita can't learn Giga Drain in Gen VI.

Okay, This is really bugging as I missed it during the playthrough.
Before you free the mascot pokemon in XY, you have to battle four team flare admins in any order you choose. I was wondering what the dialogue was when you re-talk with the bald admin after you beat him, specifically the bald one at the back (they stand in a diamond shape, to do this you can't battle him last otherwise the story will just go on).
That's a very specific question.

He says: "Lysandre is only going to save Team Flare, because we're the only ones who are truly worried about the future."

It can with move tutor in Omega Ruby and as an egg move, so I guess my question was if there was a move tutor in Super Mystery Dungeon.
Chikorita can't learn it as an egg move or by level in any generation. The only way to get it in Gen VI is by importing one from Gen IV (where it was a compatible TM) or using an ORAS Move Tutor.

Hawlucha in PSMD functions as a move deleter/reminder, but PMD in general has never featured move tutors like the main series.

PSMD's built-in manual confirms that Speed affects the Pokemon's accuracy with all moves.

Even after reading on pokemon ranger, i didnt understand if you can still get the manphey egg or not.
Also, can you still get the other ones? drakrai/shaymin.

and I always wanted to know if ist actually possible to get a Level 1 geretina/palkia/dialga from HG/SS.

Thanks!

On the original Pokemon Ranger, after finishing the game, press R + X + Left from the main menu to unlock the hidden "Ranger Net" menu. From there you should be able to play the Manaphy mission and others. Note, however, that the Manaphy Egg can only be transferred once, so if you find a copy of the game that already has the Ranger Net menu unlocked, the Egg's probably been taken.

In the later two games (Shadows of Almia and Guardian Signs) all event Pokemon were online distributions so there's no way to get Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin (etc.) now.

Yes it is possible to get Lv 1 Dialga,Palkia and Giratina, however you will need an Event Arceus on your HG/SS game to do the event. If you dont have one, then you wont be able to, and due to the wi-fi connection no longer working for those games its impossible to trade for one now.

You can still trade locally (if you know a friend who has one), but all online functionality is shut down.

Or you can hack. Either way, you're screwed if you don't have any friends or a device to hack with.

As Jafar once said on a Sega Genesis game, "GIVE UP, YOUNG STREET RAT."

Hi there I some specific questions. I don't know if it's the right place to ask, but I haven't found an answers anywhere, so there I am.

I'd like to restart my Pokemon Y game, but I'd like to keep my battle videos. So here are the questions I have:

1) Does erasing my save file also erase battle videos?(I know it's not stored in the same place, but it might still erase related content)
2) Does a new save file change the encryption of the data? ==> If the data isn't erased, would it still be readable, and would saving the data on my computer and then re-inserting it work?

I hope there is a solution to do what I want to achieve. If any of you experienced similar issues, I'd gladly listen to your advices.

Thanks in advance!

When you restart Pokemon Y, the videos will get erased in the game as well and there's really no way to save and restore the videos.

Does anyone know where I can find a list of missions and items for each of the Mystery Dungeon games (or at least some of the games)?

Wonder Guard (Ability) could be given to a legendary or new megas in future if there
both stats: Defense and Special Defense falls to zero or 1 point.
(dark/ghost now has a fairy weakness)
Some objections or suggestions?
