Birch's Gift Pokemon Gender

Is the gender pre-determined and/or locked or something? I've gotten nothing but females from the Professor. I know it could just be sheer luck, but getting three ♀ starters is like super unnatural. I picked Cyndaquil, Oshawott and Chimchar, all three have only a 12.5% chance of being female. Yamitora1 (talk) 09:48, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Poochyena Fang

From what I know, the elemental Fang it knows depends on your starter. Eridanus (talk) 14:59, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

I've been discussing that as well. I'm getting Alpha Sapphire today (my Thunder Fang came with Treecko, BTW), and I will test a few times with Torchic and Mudklip before making what will hopefully be a final edit on this. I plan to review some Let's Plays as well. Of course, through Chaining, identical Pokémon to all three can come up later, but the tutorial one is preset to one of the three.

My research of Youtube videos before testing it in-game myself:
  • Treecko - Thunder Fang Poochyena (seen in two videos, and my first had it, so I'm confirming this)
  • Torchic - Ice Fang Poochyena (didn't find this video, but I've heard Ice Fang mentioned, could be Poison Fang)
  • Mudkip - Fire Fang Poochyena (saw this in a video once out of five Let's Plays chosen, not locking it yet)
More research will be conducted. CycloneGU (talk) 16:39, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Once we know if there's a pattern or not, I think the "tt" note should be moved from the div text to "One", like I did on Route 102. Tiddlywinks (talk) 21:13, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
Got my Alpha Sapphire copy and will be conducting research soon. Is there anything else that I should also research that is near the start of the game? CycloneGU (talk) 01:18, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

So I'm angry now. My first test with a Torchic. I can't scan the move because I never encountered a Poochyena on that run. And then something came up in between me and the Poochyena. On to a second test! CycloneGU (talk) 04:10, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Just save before the tutorial and reset if need be...? And you can either catch Poochyena and check its moves (I think it'll always succeed if you just throw a ball) or just let it attack, since that'll be its only damaging attack.
FYI, I'm on a little kick where I'm running a few Mudkips, so I'll be checking Poochyena at the same time. Tiddlywinks (talk) 04:15, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
I decided for future runs to just save before going to Route 101. Since I'm trying different Pokémon, I have to keep no selection made in the save file.
I can also confirm an Ice Fang on my latest test. My starter was Torchic. Going to swap between Mudkip and Torchic for tests, then do a couple of Treecko again. After that, it should be enough to say there's a link between starter and - er - Fang. CycloneGU (talk) 04:27, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
All right, add two Fire Fangs for a Mudkip starter. Are all of yours also Fire Fang? If so, I don't think we even need to test Torchic further, as Mudkip and Treecko both have numerous results (and none conflicting) for Fire Fang and Thunder Fang, so we can call this a case like getting one of the elemental monkeys in Unova (though I don't see how Thunder Fang covers Fire types; guess it's for Surfing later on). Prepping the edit, but will wait for your reply if you're here. CycloneGU (talk) 05:11, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Well, I have 3 (4 with my original report elsewhere) Fire Fangs so far for Mudkip. Tiddlywinks (talk) 05:22, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
I got a thunderfang with treeko.Yamitora1 (talk) 09:00, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
