Question regarding Hidden Abilities and breeding, that I'm unable to get a clear answer on from Bulbapedia...

Say if I breed a Poison Cure female Roselia with a male Hidden Ability Roselia… is there a chance the offspring will hatch as a H/A Roselia or can Hidden Abilities only be passed down by the female in Gen VII if the two parents are the same species?
Male pokemon can only pass down hidden abilities if you breed them with a ditto. That’s been the case since gen 6.

I have a Japanese language Pokémon Ultra Moon version on a European (or British) cartridge because I decided to play the game in Japanese instead of English. Would I be able to use serial codes for event Pokémon at specific locations of the UK or Japan or both countries using this version of the game?

From what I can tell from from other places and from something similar that I did (played in German language despite the 3DS being from the US and got codes). It depends on the region the 3ds was from not the language you're playing in. So it'll be either UK/PAL if you're 3ds is from the UK or Japan if it's from Japan. The event Pokémon will still be in the language you selected though.

In FireRed and LeafGreen, I recall Erik and Sara in Fuchsia City being lost from each other. I pretty much gave up on reuniting them, but do they really serve any legitimate purpose at all?

How many slash based moves do we have really? does water shuriken count as one?
if a Slashproof ability would be created should then all fang and claw moves also be added to that list??? How many are there really (japanese + english names)?
_______________________________________
How many tackle, slam, head based, frontal hiting body moves do we have?
recoil moves also would fit in this category? Brave Bird , Flare Blitz, Volt Tackle, Double Edge and others?
frontal moves like aqua jet , flame charge, flame wheel, aerial ace?

the same as above if Ramproof ability would be created?
or a Rush Head ability (head priority moves)?

what will be the next ability similar to Bulletproof?

Imagine rock/fighting; grass/fighting(Chesnaught or its mega) , ghost/fighting, , steel/??? or other type combinations with this?

Ice/??? what dual typing with ice would proffit the most with one of these?

A male can pass down a Hidden Ability with a Ditto, but aside from that, yeah, you need a female. Once you breed a male HA with a female HA, the odds of another HA being hatched goes to about 80% IIRC.

Hello,

sorry if this is the wrong place. I am from germany but because of some distribution devices I own and because I want to play some games in english anyways to learn the language and especially the Pokémon and some item names in english more I bought two american generation 4 games. One of them is Platinum which I am also playing right now. Especially if I buy NTSC game here in the PAL region I am a bit sceptic about if the game is fake or not, for me it seems like 50% are and most of the time you discover it after taking a closer look onto the label. However this game looks like the original and also feels like it, interactions with other games and so on are no problem.

But one thing which I don't understand happened. During the day (maybe 30 minutes ago) I was able to battle against police officer Danny on the southern section of Route 212. I think I talked to him but that doesn't work with the other police officers and I also didn't fight them. Usually they can only fight you at night, from 8pm to 4am. I am a little bit confused about that since the time on my DS is delayed by one hour, so it is 16:00 there now.

I hope I find andyone here who knows a little bit about that, I also looked through the glitches in Gen 4 or trivia facts. I don't know if that could be an evidence for a fake game because things like this shouln't be possible to happen. :/

How long have you been on Route 212? Iirc, you can battle Joggers and Officers during the day by staying in their route after the time window passes. Been a while since I played Gen IV, but I've had a similar thing happen.

Thanks, that was the case! I saved on Route 212 yesterday evening, so the timeframe fits. I didn't know that this could be possible but I also asked a friend (before looking here again) who also plays Pokémon and he mentioned the exact same thing as you, so I am pretty sure that this is the answer I was looking for. Thank you!

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but Google hasn't been too helpful.

Is there any sort of online "legality" checker, where you can simply type in everything about the Pokemon's summary (OT, ID No, stats, Nature, Shininess, Poke Ball, location obtained, moves, etc) and get results for whether it could legally exist in-game by completely legitimate methods?

Like you'd get results that look something like this:

Technically, yes. There is a hacking tool that also checks to see if the Pokémon is legal, and what isn't legal in it.
Otherwise, you'd have to just research all the little details to know, or at least know where to look for. I have done that, so I wouldn't really need such a tool, though it'd be really useful.

I don't think there's a single page for determining whether a Pokémon is Illegal or not..
Serebii does have a very nice Ball legality checker however. And if you need to check the shiny locked Pokémon they are (currently): Victini, Keldeo, Zygarde (soon will be legal), Meloetta, Hoopa, Volcanion, Tapu Lele, Fini, Bulu, Cosmog and it's line, Necrozma, Magernea, Marshadow, and Zeroara (and also regular Zeroara isn't even legal as of now). You can check whether the HA is locked on Showdown as there'll be Strike through over the Hidden ability An event Pokémon database will come in handy as it does have all of the important information about the Pokémon both Bulbapedia and Serebii have one. Though keep in mind that if one thing doesn't match the description then it's illegal. For instance if you see a timid Shiny Tapu Koko in a pokeball that's not a Cherish ball it's illegal as there is no way to catch Tapu Koko as a Shiny you will need the event one that is always in the Cherish Ball. I'm not sure if there's a foolproof way to check ID or OT for non event Pokémon though. As for moves Bulbapedia does list all the possible moves and how they're obtained ranging back from Gen 1 up to Gen 7. It does require a bit of research to find out if the Pokémon in question is legal or not though.. The best method is to check the pokeball, if it's Shiny locked, obtained from, ability, and the Nature (if it should be locked like the Shiny Tapu Koko's) first. Then if those match up check some others to determine if it's plausible.

Hi! I don't have any knowledge on fake pokemon games, and I recently searched for cheap copy of heartgold/soulsilver and i found this (Pokémon Pokemon HeartGold SoulSilver Nintendo DS Game Cards US Version US Seller | eBay) does it look like an original game, or counter fit? Please help me, because I suck at recognizing fake ds games :p
Looks authentic to me, but you might want to look for a seller with a 99% rating. This guy got dropped down to 98% which means a lot of dislikes.
