Two special forms of Vivillon to be distributed on Pokémon X and Y; PokéBall Pattern Vivillon and Fancy Pattern Vivillon (information from Serebii.net)-
A new event has been announced. Making its first appearance worldwide, the special PokéBall Pattern Vivillon is to be given at the Pokémon Center in Paris from June 4th to June 21st. This Vivillon is Level 12 and comes with the moves Stun Spore, Gust, Light Screen and Struggle Bug. It is unknown if this event will make it out of France.
It has been revealed that the next special form of Vivillon has been announced. This form, the Fancy Pattern, is to be distributed when over 100 million Pokémon have been traded on the GTS and is to tie in with the fact that Vivillon is the most traded Pokémon. The number is currently sitting at 85 million so only has 15 million to go. It is said that the distribution will be worldwide. The actual means of distribution has yet to be confirmed but we'll post as soon as it is
This has been tweaked in Guaridan Signs, you only lose a Pokémon you capture if you use it to clear a target or it gets hit by a Pokémon attack.
You mean "Guardian", right?
I vaguely remember anything about Guardian Signs. I did not play it much, I stopped playing a bit after Cranidos' capture in the cave if I recall correctly, but I do remember that this issue got better as more Ranger games came out. At least, this indeed holds true for the first Ranger game and Shadows of Almia.
Yes, if time runs out in the sinking of cargo ship mission. Heck, the Pokémon Ranger games are rather violent (especially the 2nd and 3rd ones).
I remember the cargo ship! It has been years since I last played Shadows of Almia, so I do not remember the order of the missions. I do recall, though, that some missions were kind of extreme (I do not mean the Rangers' School), even in the first game.
I am not so good with the more strategic method of training. Got any help on how to raise my Deino?
Like which stats of hers should I raise in Super Training (I'm guessing one should be Special Attack)?
Truth is, I don't know much of the sixth Generation metagame. The only advice I could give you is that since it is a Modest nature, don't even bother with physical attacks like Earthquake, Stone Edge, Outrage, Crunch or Superpower. You could maybe use U-Turn if you decide to give it Choice Specs or something for scouting your opponent's team. Your best bets are Draco Meteor, Dragon Pulse, Dark Pulse, Fire Blast, Focus Blast, Substitute, Roost, and maybe Flash Cannon to hit the pesky fairies. As for items, go either with Life Orb, Choice Specs or Leftovers. Pick four of these moves, one of these items, get out there to see what works best for you, and watch out for the newcoming fairies.
As for the stats, usually the best way to go is maxing out Special Attack. So, put 252 EVs on Special Attack, and, from what I've seen so far, people put 252 EVs on Speed as well, and the remaining 4 are put on HP.
I should inform you that most Dragons (especially Hydreigon) have taken quite a downfall since last Generation. Important moves were powered down, such as Draco Meteor and Fire Blast (I call this bullshit), fairies were introduced, new threats, Mega Evolutions etcetera.
That is all the advice I can give. If you want more help, you can lurk in Smogon. They always have a strategy that works fine, both in game and competitively. Although it is outdated, here is the Generation V article for Hydreigon. It may come in handy.

Hydreigon was not one of the top Dragons, mainly thanks to its base 98 Speed. Thanks to it, it fell short against many Pokemon, which prevented it from being a top threat. Salamence, Dragonite (because of Multiscale), the Lati twins, Garchomp, and even Black Kyurem (when allowed) were generally better Dragons to use. That doesn't mean that Hydreigon was bad, though. It was simply outclassed. Furthermore, Hydreigon had a move that could OHKO or 2HKO just about every Pokemon in the game, even Chansey with some prior damage.
I also like Hydreigon, regardless of its competitive value. It, along with a few other Pokemon, is proof that Generation V Pokemon don't completely suck (fuck you Vanilluxe! ), and is a good response to genwunners.
I made a mistake- It wasn't a Vullaby which I traded for Deino, it was another Pokémon who I forgot.
Ironically, in this Generation, thanks to some game mechanic changes, Mandibuzz is generally a better Pokemon to use than Hydreigon... But fuck it. I don't like Mandibuzz at all. I would rather use Hydreigon any day!
I was trading a bunch of Wooper off the other day and I actually got a shitton of great stuff. It's basically where people go to dump all their breeding leftovers.
Even then it's become stupidly easy to get Pokemon with 5 IVs thanks to the Friend Safari and Destiny Knot.
Really? It seems that I am falling behind, and I need some catching up to do! A Pokemon with 5 perfect IVs being a breeding leftover?! I do not own the games, since I can not afford them, and if I know stuff about them like villains, Mega Evolution, metagame and soundtrack, it's because I like to spoil myself by watching related videos or lurking in sites like Bulbapedia or Serebii. So, I learned over time that it is quite easier to obtain shinies and Pokemon with perfect IVs, but I had no idea it would be THAT easy! Also, I thought that Wonder Trade was full of assholes trading away Bunnelby, Fletchling, Flabébé, a worthless HM slave or something like that, hoping to get something good in return, but it seems I was wrong. Well done, humanity!
I still play Pokemon Emerald after all these years, and I occasionally breed. Man, breeding back then was HARD! Everstone had only 50% chance of passing the nature to the offspring, and, if Ditto was present, it ONLY worked with Ditto, and if Ditto was not present, it ONLY worked with the female parent. You would be lucky if the offspring inherited a total of 3 IVs from BOTH parents. Inheriting abilities was unheard of back then. The chances of inheriting the desirable ability was 50-50. Also, there were no hidden abilities and such bullshit. Also, no O-Powers, hatching power and friends. Flame Body or Magma Armor was all you had. That means that if you were to breed something like Dratini, Snorlax, or even worse-Beldum, you were done for. There was no place to look for Pokemon that always had at least two perfect IVs. No Power Bracer, Power Anklet and such. All you had was Macho Brace, which had no effect on breeding, and EV training with only Macho Brace was more time consuming, maybe more than twice as slow compared to other EV training items. Also, no Super Training. Destiny Knot? What's that?

I don't think I've gotten any with 5 IVs off of Wonder Trade, but in most cases you really only need 4, anyway. I'm currently breeding a Wooper and a Ditto with 6 IVs, though. Wonder Trade is still full of crap, but it has good stuff, too. But if you find yourself trading with anyone named, like, Gavin, or Hunter, or Maxwell (anyone with a name that one of THOSE kids from grade school had), then you're probably gonna get something bad. It's pretty amazing how they've tried to simplify breeding down so much, but all I ever hear from people is that they want them to remove the IV mechanic entirely.
Destiny Knot's an item that's been around since like, Gen IV or something. Originally it was a held item that would activate if your Pokemon got affected by Attract and make the opponent attracted as well, but then after X and Y came out some Game Freak developer revealed on their Twitter that the Destiny Knot not passes down 5 IVs from the parents when breeding.
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Sorry, it's just that after SM021 and M21, I know Mima's gonna be three for three when it comes to terribly mishandling emotional moments.

Donkarasu: But at least you're fine with episode 79, because you've never said anything about it.
Feb 9, 2019 19:02:38 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That was a lucky case of not bad but the dub did better.
Feb 9, 2019 19:09:02 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Masafumi Mima said he got goosebumps when selecting the music for a certain episode and even the voice actors were brought to tears, I'm certain it was indeed episode 108 that he was talking about: twitter.com/Sunma47/status/1073896011758587909
Feb 9, 2019 19:12:11 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That's fine and good for them. Mima's just unfortunately given me lots of reasons not to trust his music placement skills (actually, lack thereof).
Feb 9, 2019 22:39:49 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Looks like I'm right not to have believed him when he promised I'd cry at the onscreen events. But I can give him a bit of credit: it turned out better than SM021 and M21 did, so that's a relief.
Feb 10, 2019 10:26:25 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: It ended up with the same results SM079JP did: a "well, okay, that happened. Can't wait for the dub to improve it" kind of feeling.
Feb 10, 2019 10:27:06 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: BTW, I watched it in the first place just because of how cocky Mima was about it.
Feb 10, 2019 18:07:31 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I'm just going to say it now: I will not be happy when TPCI fills the silent moments with music. Silence is needed especially in tear-jerking episodes as it helps set the mood for a depressing atmosphere (it's hard to describe, so I tried my best).
Feb 11, 2019 5:46:51 GMT -4
Donkarasu: It's more Reina Ueda's voice acting as Mao (I can't believe anyone who thinks she wasn't amazing) and the dialogue and less so the background music used which makes those scenes so heart breaking and caused me and others to cry or tear up.
Feb 12, 2019 10:04:15 GMT -4
Donkarasu: While I said I wasn't going to talk about the whole controversy around Vic Mignogna, I do want to say one thing about it and that's, it kind puts me off anything to do with Funimation, especially due to other voice actors being involved in this.
Feb 17, 2019 8:44:25 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: That is my biggest grief behind it. They honestly shouldn't of said anything at all, rather than outright lashing at fans that disagree with them.
Feb 17, 2019 19:44:19 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Regarding Sean Schemmel being the latest person to be a part of it, that causes me to say this: Even if you're not a fan of Masako Nozawa's Goku voice, at least she's a kind woman who respects fans and has never caused any sort of controversy.
Feb 18, 2019 13:03:11 GMT -4
Donkarasu: And for the record, this is not the only time Schemmel did/said something which caused some outrage.
Feb 18, 2019 13:04:46 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Yeah, I'm aware. His past sins have come to light and while I was able to tolerate a lot of it, his latest episode was were the line in the sand has been crossed. Cancelled Funimation account as well.
Feb 18, 2019 23:00:57 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: If he's gonna be an arrogant butt that insults the hands that feed him, then he'll have to accept the consequences of it and hopefully that'll stick. Still yeah. I was never annoyed with Nozawa's Goku voice and she is really nice.
Feb 18, 2019 23:03:51 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I mean, Goku's supposed to sound like a disrespectful county hic (remember his inspiration from Journey of the West which the Monkey King routinely pissed off the gods)
Feb 18, 2019 23:05:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: and I think most complaints stem from just different tastes in vocals from us overseas. I honestly wonder why people make a really big deal out of it. Not everyone is Norio Wakamoto
