The pokémon's poffin stats effect how many hearts they get as well. The game is just simulating those pokémon having eaten more poffins than before.

Also, some accessories raise and lower the score more depending on the theme than others.

i know what u guys are trying to say... but i have REPEATED the master rank for beauty sooo many time i get so many different themes, the other ppl put the SAME accesories and get the SAME score...

and as for the poffin case, its not possible that they can have any higher beauty rating than my charizard, its beauty is MAX, as in cant go up, i gave it a Dry-Sweet poffin, it only raised cuteness, the beauty could'nt go up anymore...

don't 2 of the other stats complement beauty? Like they add some points, but not as much as the beauty stat? It was like that in RSE

i think what u are referring to is the two other types of moves that the beauty contest allows with lowering judge's voltage...

Some pokemon get extra hearts for just being um...more favored in contests than others. On the other hand, I had a very tough time winning the Master Beauty Rank with my Empoleon. He didn't have max beauty so he only got on average 4 stars in the visual part. But I gave him the blue scarf to hold and put as many accessories (rare ones) on him as I could in 60 seconds. Eventually I won though.

SO in conclusion: It's not rigged, I have seen some of the opposing pokemon only get 3 stars once in the visual part based on the theme. The developers just got lazy and used the same accessories.

But the tower is rigged no way Bright powered made me miss 5 times in a row once and 3 times in a row another time...? Right most of you guys know the battle tower raises the % of the items your opponent uses which is to make sure it is no easy task getting to a 100 winning streak..Game Freak got us they did it again

Does your Pokemon's experience level factor into contests at all? as in, a lv. 100 Pokemon is stronger in visual appeal than a Lv. 30?

Theoretically, a brightpoweder culd make you miss 567 times in a row, it just never happens. Random chance, you know?

That tower made Tyranitar go before my Porygon-Z (was his first so no baton passing speed) which has max Speed EVs. No, it wasn't a item either, I know it used shell bell or a berry to reduce super effective damage, can't remember (was a few weeks ago). Anyways, it is rigged, or some hidden info I'm not aware of that pokemon.

I don't think the games completely fair, but they aren't terribly cheap, at least not to me. I think the only really unlikely thing that's ever happened to me was at the battle tower when my Dragonite missed about five times with Dragon Claw on an opponent with brightpowder, but that's the only time it's ever happend.

I agree. But to me its more than fair :D Once my blazikens dynamic punch hit 6 times in a row in the tower.

Yeah...
What's the point of going there if you can get a 100 winning streak easily?...
They do this in battle tower since Gold and silver...
But this Battle Tower on Diamond/Pearl is the easier BT ever i9n all pokemon
games...
I got a 133 Winning Streak and it's my current record ...
i mean i didn't lose yet...
Emerald was way harder than D/P...

agreed. i spent ages building a team for emerald and finally came up with something good, then spent ages trying to get a 100 win streak (and got it after many tries). then it got 102 in pearl the first time i tried them out. same moves and everything.

the d/p battle tower is full of the new pokemon (many of which arent as good as they look) and new items (like the berries, and focus sashes). i would compare it to the ruby sapphire battle tower (my emerald team also got a 100 win streak on its first try).

but yeah, 133 - thats GREAT!!! may i ask what your team was? (mine was salamence, blissey, suicune.)

The contests are wayy easy.

My Tyranitar won Master Rank in both Cool and Tough contests.
I fed it Spicy-Bitter Poffins no lower than LV.30, gave it the Red/Yellow Scarf, and always put the tophat and sunglasses on him.

I only used the same 3 moves for each contest.
Dragon Dance - 2X Score next turn
Stone Edge - added score in Tough contest (X2 (DD))
Dragon Dance - again
Earthquake - higher score for going last (X2)

It was too easy.
