The article says this item boosts Lati@s' Sp.Def and Sp.Atk by 50%... is that real? cause my brother got the Eon Ticket, caught Latios, and there seems not to be an offensive boost. Serebii says that Latios receives a boost in Sp.Def and Latias gets Sp.Atk, but even Latias doesn't seem to receive THAT boost (of 50%).
The questions are: Do they REALLY get a 50% boost in both Special stats? Where did that info come from? or maybe, does Latios only receive a 50% boost in Sp.Def and Latias in Sp.Atk? hfc2X 00:28, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
According to Smogon, the SD will be available from the DW. I'm not familiar with how the dream world works, so could someone who has an account on the global link add this to the article? (I have signed up for it myself, but I haven't gotten an activation email) MatchMaster 14:50, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
- Where do you see that on Smogon? I'm on there all the time, and I haven't seen one mention of it anywhere. --It's Funktastic~! 16:07, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
- Smogon's DW tier is pretty much just a theoretical tier with everything that could eventually be there in Gen V. It also includes all the Hidden Abilities, but that does not mean that every Pokémon will be available from the Dream World. Likewise, the Soul Dew is exclusive to that tier because it is currently unavailable, but is predicted to be eventually made available. --SnorlaxMonster 16:12, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
The Stat-enhancing item page claims the Japanese translation is "Soul Drop". This page claims it's "Soul Droplet". I understand they're probably interchangeable, but even so, we should pick one and stick to it across all pages, shouldn't we? (And if they're not interchangeable, which is correct?)

Soul Dew in battling facilities
While there seems to be a consensus across various sources that Soul Dew is disabled in battling facilities for the player's Latios or Latias, I read elsewhere that computer-controlled Trainers with Latios and/or Latias in their team do not have Soul Dew's effect nullified (meaning that the computer can freely use Soul Dew to its full effect, yet the player cannot)... It would help if someone could test/confirm this issue across all games that have the Soul Dew present (personally, I wouldn't be surprised at the veracity of such a statement; unfortunately, it wouldn't be the first time that the computer has had an unfair advantage against players). Thanks in advance. Fenyx4 (talk) 16:19, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
- From reading list of Battle Subway/Battle Tower Pokemon, whether they can or can't use Soul Dew is irrelevant, since they don't ever use it as a hold item. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 16:45, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
