Pokémon Diamond/Pearl *FRIEND CODES IN CLANOCR THREAD*

Recommended Posts

Serebii.net is saying it's some sort of glitch on the Nintendo WiFi system. Something about the system rejecting Battle Passes with legendaries in a team.

Nothing official, still. Hopefully this is be cleared up sometime soon.

Hmm. You know what's annoying as hell?

Grinding the levels of my Pokemans so that I can actually put a dent in the Elite Four. What's the easiest way to level your dudes up so that you can beat the Elite Four and get to the parts of the game that are actually fun? (Such as being able to use the Pokemon I caught in Leaf Green.)

EDIT: Or does someone want to trade me a high level Pokemon they don't care about so I can breeze through it myself? ;-D

What are your general levels? I managed to beat the Elite Four at about Lv. 55. Of course, I did use quite a few hyper potions, revives, and such.

As for the easiest grind...you can either go with Victory Road or maybe go with Routes 222 or 223, and use your Vs. Seeker, battling trainers generally yields more exp.

Edit:

I think I just found the real Hoothoot.

Edit #2:

Another random thought, here. I gotta say that one thing that really pleases me about P/D is the fact that you can go through, catch the 150 indicative pokemon to this game, then after you beat the E4 and get the National Dex it opens up a whole second game. Catching more pokemon, visiting new places, going on new side quests, it all adds up to make D/P a solid game, I think.

I was in the high 40s when I posted yesterday. To level them up, I ended up fighting the Rich Kid over and over again, just east of Lake Valor, I think. Whichever one has the hotel and stuff. With the Amulet Coin, it netted me a lot of cash, and it wasn't hard to stomp his Luxio over and over.

Once I got Rapidash up to 50 or so, I started fighting the Elite Four to level up. I died once at the Psychic dude, but the second time I made it all the way to Cynthia's team. She stomped me, but then I realized that I had finally seen all 150 of the Sinnoh Pokemon, so I got Pal Park unlocked, and then migrated my team from LeafGreen. My level 64 Charizard wiped the floor with most of the League.

Now I need to start making my real team..

Really, all the games are like that. RBY was kind of flat on the whole "stuff to do after the E4" thing, but each version after really added on to the stuff. GSC especially. Once you beat the E4, you were allowed to go back to Kanto, beat up the gym leaders thre, and check out how much things changed over the last few years. Then you got to beat up Red (your character from the first series), but his team was in the high 70s to low 80s, so it was the hardest battle in the game.

RSE threw in several side-quests, that whole Contests thing, and lots of little things to help draw it out some more. Nicely Done. I maxed out the clock on all three gens because of the extra stuff to do.

Edit: I think I just found the real Hoothoot.

Anyone have a Larvitar that they're willing to trade? I'm trying to decide on a good rock type to add to my line up, and so far Tyranitar is lookin pretty good, as well as further rounding out my Dex.

some pokemon that may be of interest that I have up trade include: Banette L.53, a couple of Drifloons ~L22, Happiny L.18, Mime Jr. L18, Volbeat L50. We both have Pearl, so I don't think that I would have a whole lot that you wouldn't already have.

Would any of those be of interest?

I have top work today, so I'd be limited to trading between maybe 7:30pm and 9:30pm mountain time. I could also do it any time tomorrow.

I'll take one of those new loser babies things... That way, I don't have to waste the time trying to breed them.

Ugh... stupid baby forms of old pokemon. God, how lazy the designers at GameFreak are.

Okay, home from work now and I've got you registered. I'm going to be taking off shortly to go to a fireworks show, so I don't think I can trade tonight. Shall we do it tomorrow?

Can someone explain exactly what the ability "Technician" does? Apparently "the power of the Pokemon's weaker moves are increased", but what exactly is considered a "weaker move", and how much does it increase it by?

IIRC, it's something along the lines of any move with a base power of 60 or under gets boosted by ... 1.5, I think it was?

Technician - It seems that it has indeed been confirmed that Technician raises the power of moves at basepower 60 and below (inclusive) by 1.5. It also seems to work before the STAB is factored in. It DOES boost Hidden Power.

Edit: That's what that long pause before my post appeared was. You were taking up all the bandwidth or something. Fucker.

Finally got around to finishing the ELite Four on Diamond and loaded up LeafGreen and went onto Pal Park and caught myself a Deoxys, Mewtwo and my trusty Bulbasaur. Working on trying to find my damn Ruby and get my Regice, Regirock and Registeel.

PS: Magmotar is an evil evil bitch.

I'm probably going to get fire or leaft, myself. They're only $20, after all, so why not?

Moves with attack power less than 60 have their attack power doubled.

It's good for a couple reasons, one being that you can catch what you own on the GBA games, the other puts in other pokemon in the game as you go about the normal scenery (Like Elekid in Vally Windworks when Fire is in).

Besides, replaying the set that started it all with fun new graphics and features ain't too bad either.

I got LeafGreen sometime last December. My biggest disappointment is that they didn't just open up the Johto region at the end of the main game. They could have done it in the same vein that Gold/Silver did, where there wasn't much story to speak of, but you could run through and beat all the Gyms and get a second set of Badges. That would have also made it more natural to catch all the Johto region Pokemon as well, not to mention it would have been so much more interesting than the whole Islands deal anyway.

I can agree with that. It would have great. Seeing how Kanto has been included in EVERY FUCKING GENERATION before, it would have been fine to just through in the other region for free.

Those islands were boring and flat.

Yeah, but you can do a few little things like catch the G/S/C legendaries after you beat the Elite 4 depending on what starter you chose, which is a pretty cool little thing... but yeah, I would have loved to see the other region too.

Speaking of legendaries, I'm probably going to get an Action Replay soon to get the event legendaries... I'd wait for an event , but there would probably never be any events around where I live.

The only Legendaries I am currently missing are Celebi and Lugia.

And the special event DP ones.

I'm not saying anything, but I'm not not saying anything.

Now, what exactly are you hinting at here? Haha.

Are you possibly suggesting I trade pokemon to you that I would have to cheat -no- hack to obtain? Lol.

Once I get the device, I'll see what I can do. I actually found a cool code that gives you 493 masterballs and makes you able to catch any pokemon that you want to depending on the amount of masterballs you have in you inventory. For example 493 masterballs in your inventory would make the 493'd pokemon appear in the wild, and so on.

I know, it's cheating... but if it is the only way I can obtain certain pokemon...

Fuckin' event pokemon. :/ They remind me of those damn Mario items in Animal Crossing WW. I ended up getting the whole set + Pikmin + Blue Falcon from someone who hacked with an Action Replay.

Regarding the event pokemon, I'd like to get the items that make them accessible, even if they're hacked, so I can catch them legitimately.

Ugh. Breeding to get the exact natures I want is tedious.

By the way, as far as breeding/raising Pokemon, as I understand it, I need to pay attention to the Nature, so that it boosts a stat I want and hinders a stat I don't care about. Also, battling certain Pokemon give you Effort Values which boost certain stats to a degree. Is there anything else I need to pay attention to? Also, once I get those EVs maxed out, does it matter how I level up the Pokemon? (Such as by trading and getting boosted EXP, or using Rare Candies?)

Are you using Everstones? They increase the chance of the nature of the parent pokemon holding it being transferred to the offspring.

You pretty much have the how Effort Value thing down. Use the items like Macho Brace and the new versions of it to help speed that up.

As for leveling up after maxing out your EVs, nothing you do at that point is wrong. Rare Candies, Daycare, or fighting won't do anything to your stats anymore.

I think you can't redo your EVs once you hit level 100, but by then, you should have figured out what you were doing with that pokemon.
