Question
Hey I'm about to start building a new team for wifi battles, and I know how to do EV's but not IV's so help with that would be great. And also I would like your help with a Team so far i have adamant Infernape (sword dance, close combat, u-turn, flare blitz) and modest Togekiss (thunder wave, roost, Aura Sphere, air slash). Any advice on other pokemon I can use? This is for Pearl so no 5th gen pokemon lol... thanks.

Answer
Well, for starters, I'm afraid that when it comes to IV's, it mostly relies on luck, are they are decide when you first encounter a Pokemon. All you can really do is catch several of the target species, and do the math explained here=> http://www.serebii.net/games/ivs.shtml to work out which one would be best to train...

As for your team... Well, I'd replace Togekiss' Thunder Wave with Shock Wave. That way, Infernape can have a little extra protection from water and flying types, it's to main weaknesses.

As most wi-fi battles are usually 3-on-3, I'm gonna assume that you want advice about a possible third.
I would recommend either a Psychic type with a Ghost or Dark move, to counter Infernape's weakness to Psychic, or a Ground type to counter Togekiss' weaknesses to Rock and Electric types. A Claydol would actually be perfect here, come to think of it...
There information provided here => http://www.serebii.net/potw/344.shtml is a little out of date, as it's for the 3rd Gen., but it's should be fairly easy update them with the newer moves that you prefer, or that match your own style of battling.

That's about all I've got for now, I;m afraid...

Hope I helped.

Expertise

Walkthroughs on ALL main series games as well as several spin-offs. I can give advice on basic gameplay, Pokemon locations & breeding tips for said games, as well as Gym and Elite 4 battle tips. I don't know very much about the card game, as I haven't played or collected it in years, so please don't ask. I also don't know much about the Events, where to go to get them, or when the next one will be, especially outside of Australia, so once again, don't ask.

Experience

I've completed the Pokedexes several times in most of the hand-held games, including: Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Fire Red, Leaf Green, Diamond and Pearl. I also have the Five-Star Black Trainer card in Diamond, and have played Yellow so many times, I now get bored after 5 minutes. I use my Red game for Missingno experiments, and to see what kinda cheat codes work. I also filled the Browser in PKMN ranger 2 in less than a week.

Publications
If the Pokemon Tower fan-fiction site counts as a publication, then yeah, I've been on there. Also, I'm on DeviantART, although those were just short fanfics as tributes to MiyaToriaka's brilliant artwork...

Education/Credentials
I technically didn't even finish grade 10, but I've been playing the Pokemon games for over ten years now.
