Trainer Calls: MU says this is automatic, triggered by a certain number of steps. I don't know how many steps. The trainer is certainly random. If you need a trainer to call, delete all others.

Radio Stations: Gossip says the March increases the rate of wild encounters. Even if so, the effect is trival.

Happiness is NOT affected by Fresh Water, Soda, or Lemondade. According to Continue, who is pretty definative. It should work that way, but it doesn't.

Hidden Items: I'm working on that. One of these days I'll post that info.

Focus Energy: Check out the info on this site. They tested it again and again. It was a glitch. Fixed in Stadium and GS.

Belly Drum: Errr...I thought it automatically maxed Attack to 999... But I dunno...

Rapid Spin: I've read it does in fact release you from Mean Look...But I dunno...

Lucky Number Show: If you get the last two numbers right, you get PP Up. Three last numbers gets Exp. Share. All five gets the Master Ball. No one has reported winning anything with the last four four numbers...

Hope I didn't spread too much disinformation here...

Does Belly Drum increase the user's Attack by 10 or 12 stages?
It only increases to the max of 6 stages. No further. Caps at 999.

Does Rapid Spin free the user of Mean Look/Spider Web?
No.

Does Baton Pass transfer the effects of Attract?
To Pokemon of same gender, yes.

I thought it raised the attack by ten stages. So if for example you were sweet kissed twice, your attack would still go up to max.

Did I say sweet kiss? Of course I meant charmed. Thanks.

RBY Metronome will pull up every single attack type.

What is the complete list of effects that Haze (GS) can remove?

All modifications to stats, being Attack, Defense, Speed, Special Attack, Special Defense, Accuracy and Evasion.
It will also (unless it has been changed) wipe away Mist.

What factor decides how often trainers will call, and by which trainer?

The trainer calling is completely random from your list. The call is usually every half an hour of play, and doesn't seem to be triggered by steps, but also won't pop up unless you step somewhere. I'm not sure exactly how it is done.
If you are trying to hunt down a swarm Pokemon the most efficient method is to delete every trainer off your phone list except those who don't give you 'updates' - Elm, your mother, Bill - This means the list will only have one trainer to choose from and you should get a call in about half an hour from him. 1/3 chance of it being about swarming, unless he previously challenged you to fight, in which case he only has two options of talking to choose from - Both of equal chance.

Is it true that the RBY version of Focus Energy reduces the chances of a Critical Hit?

The RBY Focus Energy glitches in the way it alters the Critical Hit calculation, providing, from testing, a lower chance of Critical Hitting. This was fixed in Stadium and in GS the Critical Hit calculation was changed totally.

Does Belly Drum increase the user's Attack by 10 or 12 stages?

People say 10.

Does Bide induce a Critical Hit?

Never. Nor does any set-damage attack or countering attack.

If the user gains a level during battle, will Pay Day notice the change?

Only if you use Pay Day after the level gain, the amount of coins it scatters is calculated when it hits, so if you were level 20 and hit twice with it, then gained a level and hit again at the end of the battle you would get 62 bucks.

If the user gains a level during battle, will Seismic Toss/Night Shade notice the change?

Yes, as with Pay Day the level is checked whenever it hits, not at the beginning of the battle.

What is the complete list of prizes in the Lucky Number Show?


PP Up, Exp Share and Masterball.

Does Rapid Spin free the user of Mean Look/Spider Web?
No.

What!? I thought that was the whole point of it!

*runs some tests*

Okay, I guess it only frees your from Wrap/Bind/Clamp/etc, not the dedicated trapping moves.
