**** If something doesn't seem to make sense, and you get an explanation for it that makes sense and doesn't contradict anything, denying it out of hand is a bit pointless. There's no point questioning something if you refuse answers.

** Possibly confirmed by gen VII, where Ride Pokèmon override Hidden Moves, and your sprite while the feature is activated depicts you in safety gear. It may also serve as an in-universe explanation to why it took 7 gens for the ScrappyMechanic to be ridden altogether -- after a few too many accidents some people finally realized it'd be safer to relegate transportation/boulder-moving/rock-hurling duties to Pokèmon already ''specifically'' trained for those tasks, with adequate gear to boot, instead of leaving them up to the mostly-child Trainers themselves.

Maybe it's not just cultural differences that make Alolans get mad at tourists who use the wrong Pokèmon to ride on.

* Almost all plot-relevant/cover legendary Pokémon start out with 0 base friendship. Makes sense, considering that every villain starting from Hoenn has tried to harness legendary Pokémon power for their own selfish ends. Makes sense that they would bear some justified resentment towards humanity by the time you battle them, no? Even Mewtwo, who didn't take part in the plot, had more than enough reason to distrust humans.

** As for the (usually non-plot relevant) trio legendaries who start with 35 base friendship, it's probably because they don't want to show themselves to just any old trainer -- the fact that some of them roam is an additional test of strength. The Sinnoh lake guardians are an exception to this; they're willing to trust you from the get-go because you released them from Team Galactic.

** I'm sorry, but I doubt your second reason applies. The fifth generation is being marketed towards the [=DSi=] and [=DSi=] XL. The DS and DS Lite could read Game Boy Advance games, but the DSi can't. This means that you won't be able to transfer your Gen. III Pokémon again. Oh, and Game Freak likes money. They'll probably re-release Ruby and Sapphire again, and we'll all complain about it, but buy it anyway. -{{@/Neopolis}}

*** No, I checked Bulbapedia. The page for the Black and White versions says "DS". Not DSi, not DSi XL, just DS.
*** Of course, the game itself WAS designed with the DSi in mind, though it's compatible with the DS, hence why you lose the bonuses the DSi version gets. They're going to cater to those who have a DSi instead of a DS, hence why we're more than likely going to get R/S remakes.

*** In theory, if you have an earlier model DS. But they've stopped making the DS and DS Lite which had the GBA slot in favor of the [=DSi=] and [=DSi=] [[BiggerIsBetter XL]] which don't. Pretty soon, probably not too far from the March 6, 2011 North American release of B/W, they're going to premiere the 3DS in the West, not only [[FridgeLogic completely nullifying anything that was special about the DSi and making it an utterly redundant piece of technology]], but removing the DS line yet another step from the GameBoy line that preceded it. They won't want a gamer picking up an earlier DS cheap at a pawn shop to get their precious Rayquaza from Generation III to B/W; rather, they'd want you buying one of their new pieces of hardware which can make them some money. Hence the probability of a Generation III remake. Just because it's possible doesn't mean Nintendo wants you doing it, especially if they can make money off of a different way of doing it. Hence [[ScrappyMechanic event-only Pokémon]], and for that matter the whole OneGameForThePriceOfTwo system. Also, another set of Generation I remakes: possible, or no? The same tech changes that just made R/S/E obsolete also took down FR/LG. Maybe they could use the 3DS Virtual Console to get the original R(/[[NoExportForYou G?]])/B/Y out there and make a system to transfer them to B/W? OK, that's very unlikely. Maybe merge their Pokémon diversity with the likely R/S/E remakes? Only slightly less unlikely. Maybe a Wii spinoff of some sort? Dear God, please prevent that from happening.
