Why should we only talk about bad things.

The best thing that happened to me was either catching my shiny Staravia, or recieving Pokerus over the GTS.

Your right. My mistake. I'll edit it right away.

26th September 2007, 12:19 PM
Well so far...

Woot, got my first shiny today, was annihilating pikachus (whilst chaining them) so i could steal their light balls, and my chain got broken on 3, by a shiny roselia.

26th September 2007, 12:19 PM
I learned how to use the pokeradar and caught a shiny! Although I havent caught any since...

26th September 2007, 12:59 PM
Managed to get an Emploeon over the GTS, and it's definitely one of my better pokemon...

26th September 2007, 1:04 PM
Catching my first Pokeradar Shiny. It was a Budew, and it was the 8th Pokemon in the chain. =^_^=

26th September 2007, 1:05 PM
The best thing so far is when i beat the league but i was only seeing what pokemon they had. I wasnt even 75% ready.

26th September 2007, 1:10 PM

Too bad that most dialga's should be a timid or modest nature ;) But nice catch anyway.

The best thing that happen to me in d/p was when i beat the tycoon guy the first time i was so happy.

26th September 2007, 3:43 PM
Catching my Dialga with a quick ball on the firts throw on my first attempt - didn't expect that to happen

26th September 2007, 3:52 PM

catching the shiny weepingbell after the random encounter

26th September 2007, 3:59 PM
To be honest I was a little disappointed, I was expecting a bit of a battle...

26th September 2007, 4:05 PM
Something that could be described as "Technological" worked for me for once.

26th September 2007, 4:46 PM
Catching my Dialga with a quick ball on the firts throw on my first attempt - didn't expect that to happen

My Palkia was a joke- it was easier than a wild Chansey to catch. I caught it on the first Ultra Ball without any status changes, only low HP.

26th September 2007, 4:53 PM
My Palkia was a joke- it was easier than a wild Chansey to catch. I caught it on the first Ultra Ball without any status changes, only low HP.

I didn't even make one move, went into the battle, threw the ball, battle over

26th September 2007, 11:05 PM
when I hatched my Shiny Modest Larvitar....but it had less than 10 sp.atk, and 30-31's in atk, def and HP(iv's)

27th September 2007, 12:19 AM
My best was the day Diamond came out (Apr. 22nd, aka the best day in the history of time), at 11:00 AM I was in orgeburgh mines and I found a shiny geodude. My first shiny ever.

27th September 2007, 2:06 AM

Twilit Dragoon
27th September 2007, 2:26 AM

Dialga - 9990
Giratina - 38020

27th September 2007, 3:16 AM
The best thing...well, getting that wonderful Poke'tch App that was the colour changer. Green is really boring.

And on the slots, I got up to 20 on the bonus round, got TM Explosion and taught it to Metagross.

27th September 2007, 3:31 AM
the best thing has to be me realising the powers of the pokeradar. if u dont know its cablites jvust take a look at my sig

27th September 2007, 8:19 AM
Best thing that happened to me in D/P was seeing a shiny for the first time in it. It was a starly that I happened to come by when SR for shiny turtwig. NAturally I only saw it 2 times so you could imagine how I felt when I couldnt capture it.

27th September 2007, 9:01 AM

27th September 2007, 11:51 AM

Getting a level 100 shiny palkia off the GTS.

27th September 2007, 9:00 PM
Finding my Shiny Heatran on the EIGHT reset.

Btw, it's possible to catch Dialga/Palkia using a Quick Ball right at the start. I've done that a few times on my hunt for a Modest/Timid Dialga. (One never showed up even after 300 resets, so I took a Mild one w. flawless HP IV)

27th September 2007, 9:45 PM
Best thing that eva happened to me was when I finnaly found a male Ralts to get a Gallade..

28th September 2007, 8:15 AM
Catching all the legendaries without spending too much time and balls. They're actually boring pokemons.

28th September 2007, 8:41 AM

Well, I gotta say the WORST thing that happened was when I randomly encountered a shiny graveler, and the first move it used was explosion.

11th October 2007, 7:08 AM
Learning how to chain for shiny pokemon.
Best and worst.
Best experience.
Worst thing ever to top off on abuse of my own hands and aspirin.

Lady Nicole

When I hatched a shiny Mr.Mime! ^_^

Raden Surya
11th October 2007, 9:01 AM
When I caught Dialga with only 1 Dusk Ball...
No, that isn't too good actually. I wish the battle was longer because I really love the music.

Anyways, maybe when I got a Shiny Weepinbell when EV training my Roserade. And that Roserade was the first Pokemon I EV trained in DP.

11th October 2007, 9:37 AM
Gotten shiny Heracross from GTS months ago and found 11 different shinies through the pokeradar.

11th October 2007, 9:40 AM

Rank up!

Miltank Warrior
13th October 2007, 1:41 AM
If I had to pick one, I'd say getting my first shiny EVER, a Weepinbell, on a grand chain of 1.

Getting Heatran with only 2 balls was pretty sweet too.

Twilit Dragoon
13th October 2007, 1:46 AM
New one is catching a shiny Beldum on a chain of 6.

13th October 2007, 2:22 AM
To be honest:

I have no shinies at the moment in my diamond version, mostly because using the pokeradar for a 40+ chain is annoying (i barely got to 10 on my first try, i would like tips)
I do have a spiritomb though =^_^= I use it in everyday life: riding my bike, brushing my teeth, nightlight to the bathroom... etc. Sadly, i do not have a wi-fi spot yet, i need to find one, because if i do I'd gladly tell you all my friend code (and i desprately need the trade-evoes, specifically Porygon-Z, Rhyperior, and Dusknoir..)

well i also have my Counter-blissey to be proud of. yay for 714HP!! <hugs his blissey>

13th October 2007, 2:51 AM
Probably when i caught my shiny Flaafy (now ampharos) wich was my first shiny EVER :)

13th October 2007, 2:58 AM
I found my First Shiny, Magnetric.

13th October 2007, 3:10 AM
I found my First Shiny, Magnetric.
Do you mean Magnemite or Manectric? Or did you get a hybrid between the two?

My best happenings:

-Getting the Pokérus when effort training my Chimchar
-Catching an Eevee with a 30 Defense, (at least a 27 but hopefully a) 30 HP IV, and a Bold nature--had to make it into an Umbreon
-Catching a Beldum (swarm) with a 30 Attack IV and an Adamant nature
-Catching a Ditto with a 31 Sp. Atk IV (for breeding)
-Hatching a Sneasel with a 31 Speed IV and a Jolly nature (yes, Ice Punch was there)
-Getting my Toys "R" Us Manaphy to have a Timid nature and 27 Speed and Sp. Atk IVs (took about 20 soft resets)
-Catching an Impish Giratina with a 30 Sp. Def IV...not in a Master Ball

13th October 2007, 3:13 AM
Dude RDSchley The highest possible HP is 512 so it's hacked

13th October 2007, 3:48 AM
mine would have to be catching an impish aron with rock head and good Ivs in def sp. def and HP others include hatching good IV pokes like my Salamence

13th October 2007, 3:51 AM
probably catching regigigas with my last pokeball when my brother got straight in the battle without saving

13th October 2007, 4:42 AM
When I started my Pearl I got a female Adamant Turtwig on my first try <3

13th October 2007, 5:59 AM

besides he's my favourite pokemon!!!

14th October 2007, 10:16 AM
3. When I hatched an adamant beldum (now metagross) with 31 IVs in attack and hp

I've been after an adamant Beldum (Metagross) since the dawn of time :(

I've hatched over 40 Beldums and so far only 1 ever had a nature that boosted attack (naughty)

14th October 2007, 11:00 AM
When I only had one Ultra Ball and no good Pokemon left but still managed to catch Palkia at full health.
How was I supposed to know I wouldn't be able to turn back to get supplies after beating Team Galaxy?

15th October 2007, 8:25 AM
best thing that happened to me today, was capturing azelf, uxie and palkia with pokeball, now trying to catch mesprit with a pokeball too.

15th October 2007, 10:13 AM
The best thing .... got diagla with a quick ball.

15th October 2007, 10:16 AM
Catching a shiny Skarmory after chaining 14 of them, and catching two shiny Electrike in a chain of around 60.

15th October 2007, 10:33 AM
So many to choose from... Maybe after chaining for eight hours, I eventually caught my shiny Beldum. :)

15th October 2007, 10:35 AM
Why should we only talk about bad things.

The best thing that happened to me was either catching my shiny Staravia, or recieving Pokerus over the GTS.

i caught palkia wit half helth and with great ball

15th October 2007, 11:57 AM
When I was catching palkia and I forgot tobuy some ultraballs, so I had only 6 pokeballs, 2 greatballs, 1 premierball, 3 duskballs and 2 ultraballs and caught him on the fourth ball.

When I also caught Azelf and Uxie within 2-4 duskballs.

When I beated E4 for the first time.

Kitty Aruseus
15th October 2007, 2:25 PM
What's SR and how do you do it?

The best thing that happened to me?

When I beat the e4, I was so happy I wanted to go catch a mansion pokemon, but I found the turnback cave and caught Giratina! ;P

15th October 2007, 3:34 PM
Getting within the space of about 2 days from the GTS, the following:

A set of female starters
A female Combee
A Shieldon and Cranidos

All for Aipoms with less than desireable stats.

15th October 2007, 7:00 PM
Probably... when I beat the league for the first time.

Then I started over because I'm an idiot.

Then I beat the league again.

Then started over again, so that I'd be able to try out all starters -_- NOT gonna start over this time.

Evil Azurill
15th October 2007, 8:37 PM
In my last game, before I started over, I was hunting for shinies with the pokeradar. I was actually looking for shiny Chatot because my brother wanted one, but I was so bored and started a Flaaffy chain just for the heck of it.

The third Flaaffy in the chain was a shiny, and I caught it on my first try. I was quite pleased, and evolved it into Ampharos.

Never did get the Chatot, though, lol.

15th October 2007, 8:41 PM
Guess its catching Shiny Pokemon....

Or someone giving me a free level 5 Jirachi

Or getting The three D/P Trio with there prefered natures...

16th October 2007, 12:49 AM
Catching a Dialga with a normal Pokeball.. xD; I'm so happy my Pokeball-throughout-the-game chain hasn't broken. Though I'm sure it will come the rest of the pokemon...

16th October 2007, 1:15 AM
got an adamant ninjask with 31 IV's and i traded a bidof

Master Alltro-N
29th October 2007, 2:35 AM
I found a Shiny Psyduck in the Safari Zone on my Diamond and somehow it didn't run away... it made me happy, being my first natural shiny since my shiny Smoochum in Crystal (no luck, that is me...)

Preserving it on D thanks to the ever versatile slave Bidoof.

Charizard The Great
29th October 2007, 10:07 PM
I have a few favourite moments in Diamond, and this isn't my best, but when I put the Electirizer on my level 40 Electabuzz and traded (and re-traded) it with my brother I was over the moon as Electivire is arguably my favourite Diamond and Pearl Pokemon.

Genesis Gackt
30th October 2007, 1:44 AM

Thats not possible as you have to kill the Graveler first. The girl isn't called Maylene, and her Arcanine doesn't know Fire Blast. It wouldn't have attacked anyway...

Metal Force
31st October 2007, 8:08 PM
~Getting shinys by GTS/Trades.

how do you get chains of pokemon? i dont get it :S

2nd November 2007, 5:58 AM
Having a pokedex of 300 after only 6 months of playing! Hell yeah!!

2nd November 2007, 6:29 AM
Thats not possible as you have to kill the Graveler first. The girl isn't called Maylene, and her Arcanine doesn't know Fire Blast. It wouldn't have attacked anyway...

Yep that's right, I know because I tried to catch a Steelix once in a double battle, and it didn't work, I had to kill the other pokemon first.

Having a pokedex of 300 after only 6 months of playing! Hell yeah!!

Took you quite long to be honest

Oh and I didn't have any real awesome happenings in the game yet. I'd love to have a shiny Magikarp, fished for hours, but I'm getting bored and I could spend my time better shaping my Gyarados and Machoke up for the E4.

2nd November 2007, 4:16 PM
Probably when I got a shiny, Impish Shieldon.

My first shiny, yay.

2nd November 2007, 10:44 PM
When I got my first 2 shinies EVER (besides red gyrados).
I got my shiny ponyta and my shiny kricketot on my japanese version. After this my luck exploded when my work payed off and I got my shiny abra on my leafgreen. Then I learned how to chain and now I have lots of shinies on my english version.

2nd November 2007, 11:11 PM
Catching my shiny regigigas today :D

3rd November 2007, 1:15 AM
Took you quite long to be honest.

Yeah, but compared to most people, that's kind of impressive. Also, after a while I lost a lot of intrest in my Pearl version over the summer and hung out with friends, went to the pool, ect. So, actually, I probably got 300 in a span of about 4 months(including how long it took me to complete the story mode, which took a couple of weeks.)

6th November 2007, 5:58 PM
Hmmm I have yet to catch a shiny :|
Buttt i did get a Modest Palkia with max IV's in Spattck!

7th November 2007, 7:48 AM
I would say when I defeated the Elite Four for the very first time.

The Pokemon I had with me, overall, were very mediocre. I had my Empoleon, which was around level sixty I think, but the others were very weak. My second-strongest Pokemon was a stupid Palkia that I abandoned afterwords, which was still probably at the level I caught it at, or maybe a couple levels higher.


7th November 2007, 8:07 AM
hatching a quadruple flawless modest swift swim omanyte was pretty awesome

7th November 2007, 8:41 AM
catching a shiny chatot after countless chains (it was worth it,) and getting a growlithe with pkrs and egg moves flare blizt and crunch on GTS, and this weird shiny slaking i traded for my anorith on GTS.

7th November 2007, 10:14 AM
My best moment was something else. It was NOTHING I was expecting. I'd put a Manaphy up for trade (don't worry, I had three others) on the GTS to see just how long, or what exactly, people would trade for a just-hatched and untouched Lv. 1 Manaphy. So, I put in a request for a Mew at Lv. 50 or above. It was mainly a test since I already had a Mew. I play around on the GTS for about fifteen minutes, then hit Summary to check on the Manaphy. Someone has traded for it already and I'm thinking, "Wow, that was quick!" Then the traded Mew comes out of the Pokeball.

The Mew is blue. I literally screamed. :D It was at Lv. 100 too.

Getting a shiny Mesprit off the GTS in return for a Kyogre (no level requested) wasn't bad either. Of course, all of my shiny Pokemon are very special, it's just that those two trades in particular stood out.

Before all of that, I'd captured a Pidgey during its first swarm on my Diamond game, and it'd given me Pokerus.

Whenever I discovered the Spring Path leading to Turnback Cave on Diamond, I'd forgotten that that was where Giratina is, and was a bit underprepared. Even with Shadow Force, though, I managed to catch it in three Ultra Balls. It took me way longer on Pearl.

When I caught Mesprit on Pearl, I had only just gotten it into the red zone, and I decided to go encounter it one more time for fun even though I had nothing to trap it like Umbreon. I threw one Ultra Ball, figuring it'd run again, but nope...that was it :p

There's more I'm forgetting, I'm sure, but those are just the main moments that really stood out for me and made my day ^_^

7th November 2007, 10:19 AM

24th November 2007, 12:48 PM
I can write a book about all the good things that happened to me on DP:
First and foremost, finding my first shiny on stark mountain, a graveller(too bad it has a rash nature:()
Second was finding my first pokeradar shiny 2 days after finding graveller, a shinx.
Third was finding a lot of nice shinies on my first visit to the GTS, including a legit shiny phione!
Fourth was finally getting a male shiny adamant ralts after a lot of sweat n' tears.
Fifth was finding a shiny numel on emerald
Sixth was finding a random shiny cherubi, nuff said.
Seventh was getting shiny uxie after 3000 srs.
Eight was getting a shiny mesprit in a trade.
And it goes on...

6th December 2007, 6:57 AM
Why should we only talk about bad things.

The best thing that happened to me was either catching my shiny Staravia, or recieving Pokerus over the GTS.

I actually don't find it that hard to get Pokerus (not trying to burst your bubble or nothin') but about half of my Pokemon in Pearl have it (thats about 150). Someone told me that its like, one in a million chance or something, but it seems to spread on mine. :|

But the best thing thats happened to me: going on a great digging streak in the Underground and finding Fossils and Stones, many in a row,.

6th December 2007, 6:59 AM
The best thing is when I hatch Pokemon with good IV's. ^_^

7th December 2007, 5:12 PM

Most of you would already defeated elite four already!) And when I visit the pokemon centre, nurse Joy told me about pokerus and I was so excited because I heard of it before and I read that it is a good virus that increase the stat of your pokemon! And soon I learned that I need to keep the infected pokemon in PC so the virus won't go away and I also infect other pokemon with virus but putting them in my team and battle with wild pokemons a few times!!!! Oooo, now I don't really need to do much EV training anymore!!!

I've got two (both on Pearl):

1) SRing for Shiny Giratina and Heatran; Gira took only two days (my dad nearly crashed the car when I found it), but Heatran took me three months (while I was baby-sitting. I looked up for a second, then I looked at the screen because I heard a shiny-marking sound).

2) Randomly encountering a shiny Raticate (red is purdy) while I was messing around on a route, no Pokeradar (that thing hates me, I swear).

-F.S. out

Im planning to evolve n use the gentle one into Bronzong.

8th January 2008, 11:46 AM
;147; When I first got the game, breeding became my thing. I got hold of a Dragonair and began making babies like crazy. Unfortunately, I did not have a PKMN with Magma Armor or whatever, so breeding was difficult. This was before I became a pro. Eventually, I bred 3 Adamant Dratini's, 1 male and two female, and all equipped with Dragon Rage.

I liked my male Dratini very much, so I kept it in my party as I bred egg after egg. I was in Solaceon at the time. It was early this one morning that a biker decided to bump into my pixelated self.

I had not saved or anything..

Luckily, he had only 1 PKMN, Ponyta. I figured there was a possibility I could win with a Dratini that had Dragon Rage. So the battle ensued. He uses growl. I retaliated with a Dragon Rage and knocked more than half of his HP off! My heart was racing. Just one more hit...

Then, it was his move again. GROWL! I finished him off with another Dragon rage and grew about 8 levels.

That battle ruled X3 ;147;

I was trying to breed my Arcanine with a Naive Ditto holding an everstone, but for some reason none of the babies would hatch with that nature!

It drove me nuts, but as a result I accidentally hatched a shiny Careful Growlithe! It's not the best nature and it has Flash Fire instead of Intimidate, but it's still a very usable shiny!!

10th January 2008, 2:35 AM
