HP - Hidden Power. A Pokémon’s attack power and element type using the move Hidden Power depends on its IVs and may range from 30-70. To find a Pokémon’s IV set, one must ask a hacker to check or can do an IV battle.

IV - Individual Values. These are the hidden values of a Pokémon that determines it’s strength in each of its stats when it was first received in the game. The values range from 0 to 31 in each stat.

IV Battle - A special WiFi battle where one party checks the stats of one or many Pokémon at a high level, usually level 100, and inputs the information into an IV Calculator to determine IVs and Hidden Power.

Junk Pokémon - A Pokémon that someone does not need for his/her game. Usually used for trades that involves someone giving away valuable Pokémon.

Legit - A term used to denote that a Pokémon is not hacked.

Legit Checking - Otherwise known as LC. A complex process used to determine if a Pokémon is hacked. Only editors can determine if a Pokémon is legit, but NOT all editors can LC. At the time of this post, there’s no way to LC for Black/White games.

LF - Looking for. What someone may be looking for on the boards LF: Celebi

Nature - A determination of how a Pokémon will grow and how it will affect its stats.

Poké Transfer - A process of moving Pokémon from a D/P/Pt/HG/SS game to B/W. This is located on Route 15 and is only available once the storyline is completed and the player has obtained the National Dex. Two Nintendo DS systems are required to transfer.

Rare Candy - Also abbreviated by RC. This phrase has two meanings. It can mean either the item “Rare Candy” or it can be used as a verb, to denote an increase of level(s) of a Pokémon using Rare Candies or with help from an editor.

Relocator - A machine used to transfer the Nintendo Event Celebi, Raikou, Entei and Suicune from D/P/Pt/HG/SS to B/W. Two Nintendo DS systems are required to use the Relocator. The mentioned Pokémon must be transferred using the Relocator to activate their respective events.

RNG - Random Number Generator; A Method to capture a specific Pokémon, usually a shiny one and/or one with a certain IV set that is usually flawless.

Scam/Scammer - A scam is an act where one trader benefits from a trade but the other trader does not and is left with something that was not agreed upon before Trading. A Scammer is a person who scams. Scamming is knowingly being dishonest in any way with anything that involves trading, whether or not there is benefit or detriment to any parties involved.

Semi-legit - A term used to denote that while the Pokémon itself is not hacked, the item to access the event to the Pokémon is hacked. (i.e. Using an AR to hack an Enigma Stone to capture Latios/Latias)

Shiny - A Pokémon that has a different color than a regular one and are highly valuable because of its rarity. The chances of finding one in the game are low.

TC - Topic Creator. They are the users that started a topic.

UT - Untouched. This abbreviation is used to tell traders that a Pokémon has not been used.

VC - Voice Chat. This option is set to On as default when entering the WiFi room. To turn off Voice Chat, simply press X.
