if you are talking about a complete game,the only way would be if it were the second game of the season and they were no hit the first game.you could pitch 5 perfect innings or so and have a teammate give up 10 runs the rest of the way,or the team fields 9 players with no at bats Yes. If everyone on the other team has a .000 batting average then nobodies batting average would change. The previous answers are correct, but let me discuss a bit of misinformation I seem to hear a lot. One common answer is that this happened when Bob Feller pitched a no-hitter on opening day one year, that everyone had a .000 batting average entering the game, and after the game, they stayed at .000. This is actually a fallacy. Since no one had batted yet, prior to the game, their batting averages were not .000, they were undefined. (Remember, batting average is hits divided by at-bats. Everyone had zero at-bats prior to the game, and you can't divide by zero.)

Yes, Dark Void would effect Cresselia. Dark Void would fail if it misses, the opposing Pokemon has the Insomnia ability, or if the opposing Pokemon is already asleep.
