If you look closely after Pluto dies, you can see the newly awakened ChibiMoon holding one (that she cried out), then Venus holding the past and present Ginzuishou.
Doesn't seem like it. Usagi takes them from Diamond, then we see Usagi holding one and Venus the other. When it appears for Chibi-Usa, we no longer see it with Venus, and there's no suggestion that there's a third. So it must have simply been transmitted from Venus' possession and into her tear.
But, in the end, it's a fact that the ginzuishou is a special, one-of-a-kind sailor crystal. There was only two because it was the same one from different time periods.

But it wasn't instantaneous. And I wouldn't call her an OK fighter by any measure, either. She can do a lot of basic things that other people without training can do. It may just be that her ability to maneuver and coordinate her body improves when she actually has to be serious about what she's doing. She doesn't exactly have much reason or motivation to be serious about sports, for instance.
The anime Sailor Senshi never seem to get all their past memories back.
Luna explained that ice skating was very popular in the Moon Kingdom, and that the Princess liked to skate, but Usagi can't skate. As Sailor moon Usagi's boot become ice skates, and Usagi can skate.
How much you do want to bet that Princess Serenity could have had had special foot ware so she wasn't a clumsy?
She wasn't clumsy in her past life, as far as I know. I think it's more likely that the anime doesn't put as much thought into certain things because it's not really important, beyond whatever kind of entertainment they're trying to deliver to the audience.
Could you give some examples of good sources? I'm only coming up with the villains as some what trust worthy.
Well, I already mentioned two good ones (Galaxia and Cosmos), since they provide a lot of information about star seeds and the galaxy cauldron. There aren't many others that provide as much information, but still inform us enough of what we need to know at the time (as it was no doubt the author's intent). Both Snow Princess Kaguya and Nephrenia each offer information about the past, for instance. Usagi's mother, the first queen of the moon kingdom, offers some tidbits, as well. (But it depends on whether we're talking about the anime or the manga. The manga tends to have more depth and sense to it, in my opinion.)
Information by word isn't necessarily bad information. It all depends on the context. A common way that an author shares information with the reader, that they think they should know, is done via conversations between characters.
Sailor mercury has a handy dandy little computer that should have all the important information the Silver M. every gathered, but it seems the Silver m. was dam ignorant about star seeds, dream mirrors, heart crystal, their own weapons...
The reason I would trust Ami is because she seems to care about knowledge and facts. She is a scholar, and no other character is like that. Most of the other characters only know what they have been told by others.
Pluto is probably a better source of knowledge than Mercury. Mercury is shown to look up to her, in particular (out of the outer senshi, I mean), in the manga. She's lived through many more ages, after all. Well, I don't know how she can learn much from staying at her post in the fourth dimension, but it's more than intimated that she's knowledgeable about things. Although the outer senshi are pretty much shown to be "advanced" versions of the inner senshi, as well as in their civilian forms. And then, later, it's done again with the starlights, with them being more "advanced" than the outer senshi. It's quite silly, if you ask me.
I thought Usagi was at a Three Lights and there is an attack, and the animate grabbed the broach, but was driven off by a blast of energy.
Is that the only time it ever happened in the anime, though? I mean, I'm sure it was taken with no problem from other baddies. Diamond comes immediately to mind. There's another time, in the anime, but I can't remember when or by who it was done by.
(You quoted something without a response after this one. I'm guessing that was a mistake?)
