I have a ton of Legendary and event pokemon in my Gen 3 and 4 games and I wonder if they would be safer if I transferred them permanently into the Gen V games... Are the DS game cards data going to corrupt one day? I know my GBA games clocks are starting to die. What do you think?

Considering that the DS carts don't use batteries to keep track of time or save data, I think they would be safer.

Also, I have not had a battery on a GBA cart die lose any game data. Only the clock events are affected, and that isn't a big deal, as being able to get access to a mediocre Leftovers wannabe and some berries which won't affect the story or team building in any real way won't ruin it.

GBA carts don't use volatile memory like the GameBoy Color Pokémon games. Those used a battery not just for the clock and weekly calender, but also for storing the save data. GBA carts don't do that, they use a more stable form of ROM. It was also more expensive, which is why bootleg GBA carts tended to use cheaper battery-powered ROMs that tended to die most of the time.

The choice is yours. Eventually, any storage medium is going to fail, but it looks like the GBA carts are good for at least a few more years.

Besides... if all goes well over the next few years, we may be seeing either more GBA games (including some pokémon ones) or 3rd gen remakes on the 3DS. If we get remakes, you might just be able to transfer all your favorites over and have them live in a reverberated Hoenn.

I totally forgot to post my friend code for the game: 1464 4889 9623.

I've got a Seadra that I'm trying to trade to evolve it into a Kingdra so I can have another dragon pokemon on my team. I'd love it if anyone could help with that. I just need to figure out where the hell I can get a dragon shard before Victory Road.

I actually restarted the game 35 hours in and am back to 40 hours, and I've spent a shitload of time using the pokemon dream world on the global link page. In fact, most of the pokemon on my team are mons I acquired through it. It's not that I don't like Unova region's pokemon, I just like a lot from other regions a lot more.

Let's get some battles and trading in, people!

I can hook you up with a Dragon Scale. I'll trade you something with the scale attached then you can disconnect, put the scale on Seadra then I can trade you then you can trade back for Kingdra, deal? If you have a spare Tepig or Snivy that would be cool. If not, how about a elemental monkey or a Petilil. My friend code is 0433-6124-3556. PM me when you can trade. Thanks.

YAY! FYI guys, Ocre is pretty awesome! Now my battle team is nearly complete! Just need to figure out whether I want a Torchic, a Mankey, a Tepig or a Meditite to round it out...

It's hilarious how the Breeders keep refighting you so often. xD Marriland may think it's annoying, but I kinda like it. Provides for easy training.

Listening to this track while studying just makes me feel good.

Man they did a good job with the OST to the Black/White generation.

Hey gang! I've FINALLY beaten the Elite Four and gained access to pokemon breeding. Here's the sklnny:

I want a Torchic(egg or recently hatched/<lvl.10 is fine), and I've got a few Oshawott and Oshawott eggs that I'm willing to trade, although I could probably breed a few other things if anyone wants. I just want me a torchic!

Someone let me know if they wanna deal or if they could direct me to anyone who would. Happy gaming!

Edit- I just got a few golarks and male eevees that I can trade as well.

My girlfriend got me Black 2 for the mas of the Christ, and I'm pretty hooked.

I'll add everyone here now, though I'm still working my way through the story, so I doubt I'll be doing a whole lot of online stuff for a while.

I'd beaten the E4 in White 2 a while back and have kind of just been screwing around with other games since then. I'm starting to get kind of bored and I figure I might as well start getting into the whole online thing before X and Y get here, so here's my friend code for White 2.

3053 5393 2815.

I guess I'll add everyone who has their code posted here while I'm at it. Now, off to explore the rest of Unova and train my pokemon.
