A pretty big update:
-After cleaning out TG, I caught a Gastly♂ called Disturbed, trained that for a bit, but dropped it after it evolved into Haunter (They need to learn more Special moves earlier)
-Beat all the trainers on Bike Road, and Fernando/Buneary♂ evolved. Dropped him too.
-Trained a little bit on the route to Solaceon, and found out joggers only battle in the mornings.
-Spread honey on some trees, came back later and caugh a Combee♀, Cherubi♀, two Burmy's (♂ + ♀), and an Aipom♀.
-Traded an Aipom♂ from Pearl to breed with her to get an Adamant Run Away Aipom♀, called "Sidney" with Fake Out.
-Trained Sidney to catch up with the rest of the team, abusing the VS Seeker.
-Went to Pastoria via Hearthome, straight to the Great Marsh. Caught a ♂ and ♀ Croagunk to breed an Adamant Anticipation Croagunk♂ named "Achilles".
-Hatched Achilles, and trained him up with the rest of the team.
-On the way to Pastoria, PotHead, Zephyr, Ronald, Sidney, and HotStuff all evolved.
-Challenged Wake before Maylene for the first time on Diamond, and HotStuff was my choice.
-It took a few tries, as Floatzel kept KOing me with Brine, but Gyarados made the mistake of using Swagger, and after I snapped out of confusion, I swept with Take Down, with HotStuff at lvl 34.
-Healed everyone, and went to Veilstone, where Sidney was my choice. Fake Out = Dead Meditite, Tickle+Double Hit = Dead Machoke, and TickleX2+Double Hit = Dead Lucario. Lucario kept healing itself with Drain Punch, so Maylene was harder.
-Helped Lucas with his PokeDex, and trained Achilles to evolve. Healed and saved.

Zephyr/Honchkrow♀ - lvl 33
Sidney/Ambipom♀ - lvl 34
HotStuff/Rampardos♂ - lvl 34
Achilles/Toxicroak♂ - lvl 38
Ronald/Gastrodon♂ - lvl 33
PotHead/Roserade♂ - lvl 33

Mine! Forest! Fen! Cobble! Let the journey continue!

I did some "breeding projects" for Staryu, Chimchar and Snorlax for the Battle Frontier in Platinum. Spent a lot of time in the GTS today because I want to send them to my Platinum but I encountered some problems. My Staryu(which evolved into a Starmie) was snatched by someone in the GTS, so I had to breed for another Staryu. Sigh. Oh! I attached a Psychic TM(which I spent a lot of money on) on it too, so I had to spend more money on game coins. Transferring Pokemon through the GTS is definitely risky. Then, I searched for Pokemon that is rare in the GTS and found out that Xatu is one of the Pokemons, so I trained a couple of Natus, which were sitting in my PC box until they evolve into Xatus. Actually, I just need one of them but I didn't realised that then. I spent more time in the GTS, transferring Xatus, Clefairies, Starmie and Snorlax between Diamond and Platinum. Just finished transferring them. Finally!

I'm facing Palkia right now. :D I'm SO ready to get it in its shiny form!

And I know exactly what I'm doing. I open up with my Synchronize Alakazam. It Tricks an Iron Ball onto Palka. From there, I use Reflect. If Zam doesn't die, I keep on using Kinesis until it faints. If Zam dies, I switch to Exeggutor, who sets up Light Screen and walls it while I revive/heal Zam. Switch back to 'Zam, Kinesis it until its accuracy is really low (like -5 or -6), then I set up a screen and switch to Sceptile, who uses a combination of Rock Smash and False Swipe to get it down to 1 HP. Breloom is an absolute last resort Pokemon because it has Effect Spore, and if Palkia hits with Dragon Claw, it could get poisoned. :( That's why Kinesis is really helpful in this match.

Wish me luck!
Why do you even bother bringing a Pokémon that could accidentally killing it? -_-

Went through the Elite 4 with Houndoom and Pichu. Houndoom is currently on lv. 60 and Pichu on lv. 56.

I already started with my next breedin project. I involves Cyndaquil, my favorite starter Pokemon. This will be a very time consuming project as I not only want it to have good IVs but also HP Ice.

After beating Maylene, I healed. Went to the TG "hideout", and got Lucas' PokeDex back. Taught Fly to Zephyr, and flew to Hearthome, where I accidentily ran into my rival. He wasn't much of a challenge, HotStuff took them all down.
Trained against the Gym trainers with Ronald/PotHead/HotStuff/Zephyr/Sidney. Chose Achilles for this battle, for a challenge, although he knew Sucker Punch, so it wasn't a challenge. Fantina was easy, as Sucker Punch OHKO'd everyone.
Healed, and started training random pokemon for PokeDex pages, gonna actually fill the Sinnoh Dex this time around.
Satisfied with my 100 Seen/80 Caught PokeDex, I headed for Solaceon. Beat all the trainers on the way. Got to Celestic Town, and got rid of the "weird spaceman". Cyrus babbled about something I don't/won't care about. Taught Surf to Ronald, and flew to Jubilife, picking up a new Poketch app. Got to Canalave, and beat all the trainers along the way. Forgot about the Rival battle when I tried to go to Iron Island. Crushed him as usual, with a combo from Achilles and PotHead. Went to Iron Island, where I am training to lvl 43 where Zephyr will challenge Byron =]

Achilles/Toxicroak♂ - lvl 40
Zephyr/Honchkrow♀ - lvl 41
PotHead/Roserade♂ - lvl 43
Ronald/Gastrodon♂ - lvl 40
HotStuff/Rampardos♂ - lvl 40
Sidney/Ambipom♀ - lvl 40

After spending a bit more than a day on the breeding project, this is what the Pokemon in the Daycare look like, IV-wise:

Naive, male ;392; 22 / 31 / 22 / 31 / 23 / 31

Mild, female ;155; : 7 / 27 - 28 / 23 / 31 / 31 / 31

The perfect result would be a Cyndaquil with these IVs: 25+ / 31 / 25+ / 31 / 31 / 31. The perfect spD IV is needed to heighten the chances of HP Ice. The father, Chimlord, my awesome Infernape, actualy has HP Ice with the max power. But in his case it was more of a surprise than a planed thing.

You see, to get to the result I want, I'll have to go through days and probably months of breeding. But it will pay off. Cyndaquil line is my favorite starter line. And HP Ice is a must BTW. Wish me luck!

Good choice for Bibarel, I used one on my previous team and it was strong.


I beat the "T.G. Eterna Bldg" and I beat Gardenia. Then I proceeded to find a Cascoon in Eterna Forest but heck, I didn't find any of the Wurmple line for like half an hour!

Then I defeated the trainers on the Cycling Road, caught a Gible, then SRed for Impish Shieldon and Adamant Cranidos.

Pearl: SRing for Palkia still. Now that I'm free of the bondage of Stark Mountain on Diamond, however, I'll be able to soft reset for Palkia more.

Switched Infernape with this new father for my breeding project:

Mild, male ;155; : 28 / 31 / 26 / 31 / 0 - 4 / 31

He has the same flawless IVs and higher IVs in the other stats. SpD doesnt matter as I want the mother's spD IV to pass down. But the most important thing is that I can finally switch to the mass hatching method, having two Pokemon of the same species in the Daycare.

Did some gts trading on my Diamond. Got me a Japanese Milotic and Hippowdon. Plan on breeding via masuda method for a shiny feebas. Going to finish eving my typhlosion in Speed and start eving my shiny Growlithe in Speed/Att/Hp(4 EVS of course).

In pearl I swept the E4 again with ease. Now I just need to find all the pokemon to complete my dex. Currently at 144. Sring to get a decent natured Uxie since I already caught me an Azelf. Then I need to do the Cresselia thing. After that I will get the Radar and head over to snowpoint city to get on the ferry.

Well my Wi-Fi is being a ***** so I won't be battling for 2 - 3 weeks and as this unfortunate event has bestowed itself upon me, I figured I'd smash the Battle Tower. Got my streak up at 34, 35th battle was just a joke. I came up against a team of pathetic Pokémon that got OHKO'd until the last Pokémon which was Porygon2 came out. I had Gyuken/Gengar out with 70% HP so I switched to Yazurime/Miltank 100% and Porygon2 used Shadow Ball - LOL. Anyways Yazurime went first and used Brick Break which caused 35% damage (she's not an attacker just to note) and Porygon2 used Tri-Attack and got a critical hit KO'ing Yazurime. Next out was Shin-Ryu the shiny Flygon. She Earthquaked and Pory2 hung on with what appeared to be the thinnest slice of HP I've ever seen without a sash. Pory2 used Ice Beam and critted on Shin-Ryu KO'ing her, although I'm pretty sure that would have happened regardless of the critical. Finally I send Gyuken back out, Pory2 has an unexpected Quick Claw AND criticals with a Shadow Ball on Gyuken causing me to get knocked out of the Battle Tower! I was enraged at this point, that's just unbelievable hax! 3 criticals and a Quick Claw! I ended up smoking two cigarettes and leaving the DS away from reach to stop me throwing it. I'm sure others can relate as there has always been hax at the Battle Tower since Crystal?

21st June 2009, 1:43 AM
There always had been hax, let it be in-game and in the Battle Facilities. I don't see why the luck factor would be increased for the NPC's in the Towers/Frontiers.

Today while breeding for my special wall, I finally got my Calm Spoink I went to the game corner to get rest, (It's going to be a Rest Talker with Psychic and Energy Ball, I like this combo) I realized I didn't have enough money to buy 8,000 coins for rest! So I ran and went through the elite 4 a few times with Amulet Coin and ended up maxing out my money. I got rest and grabbed a hidden power in case I changed my mind about my Magmortar knowing SolarBeam. Any who, I started my Ariados with my ditto and they haven't had a egg yet but I can wait a while.

I have been doing well in my 'Gark Oak' anime team game. I have got to the part before the 5th gym, and am now in need of a surfer. I have restricted myself to only use pokemon that are descendants or are the pokemon owned by Gary Oak in the anime, with the exception of my starter (which is a slave). I have only a Kadabra and a Graveler, and they're both level 40, and so I need your help.

If ANYONE, could spare an egg of Horsea, Squirtle, or Krabby, and one of Doduo or Skarmory, and would be willing to do an enormous favour in trading me one of these, please PM me. I haven't anything to give, unfortunately, but I will be forever grateful as I cannot continue without your help.

Picked up my Diamond after I neglected it for Platinum. After I trained everyone to lvl 43 in Iron Island, I went straight to the Gym. Beat all the trainers, and took Zephyr up against Byron. Bronzor was easy, one Payback was enough to KO it. Next was Bastiodon, who kept KOing me with Ancientpower. Tried a few times, but kept getting KO'd by Bastiodon. Left, and trained Zephyr to lvl 45 so it would learn Night Slash, and tried again. This time was easier. Bronzong was out like a light after 1 Night Slash. Bastiodon was next like clockwork, and I got about 5 critical hits from NightSlash+SuperLuck. Finally after much stalling, I KO'd Bastiodon. Steelix was last, who got OHKO'd by a critical hit from Night Slash. Currently training my team to lvl 45 before heading off to Snowpoint City. Also filling the PokeDex.

Current team:
Zephyr/Honchkrow♀ - lvl 45 - Really strong pokemon, loving critical hit abuse.
Achilles/Toxicroak♂ - lvl 44 - Very strong, but a bit slow and defensively weak.
Sidney/Ambipom♀ - lvl 45 - I bred FakeOut onto it, and it pretty much KO's everything because of Technician.
PotHead/Roserade♂ - lvl 43 - LeechSeed is the best Grass move ever, and Giga Drain KO's everything.
HotStuff/Rampardos♂ - lvl 43 - Beast. Unstoppable.
Ronald/Gastrodon♂ - lvl 45 - Very sturdy, and I love this pink snail.

My target has changed once AGAIN in Diamond. I can never stay on one target for too long in that game, it seems.

I really want to have a unique shiny, and I've decided that Mesprit will be that shiny. I will soft reset for it after I get Riolu through hatching eggs, EV-ing some of my other shinies, chaining a shiny Wobbuffet (for catching shiny Mesprit), and probably getting some other chaining targets. To begin, I'm chaining for a shiny Wobbuffet. Not at the moment, but I will begin soon.

After beating Byron, I trained up a few levels on the Gyarados' trainers between Jubilife and Canalave. Dumped Roserade in the PC, and recieved a DeFoging, Rock Smashing Gligar from my Pearl. Went into Mt. Coronet, and picked up every item possible. Caught a Clefairy too. Made it out, and beat most of the trainers, taking breaks between to heal at the house. Caught a Snover and a Sneasel. Beat more of the trainers, and headed north. Picked up the much needed later HM Rock Climb. After a cluster of trainers, I finally reached Snowpoint, with every one but Roserade at lvl 46. Roserade and Ambipom grew to lvl 46 and lvl 47, respectively. Roserade was my choice for Candice, and not a bad one. First was Snover, who got KO'd by HP Flying after I set up 2x Toxic Spikes. Sneasel was 2nd, OHKO'd by poison after Giga Drain left her with about 10HP. Medicham followed in Sneasels footsteps, and got OHKO'd by poison and HP Flying. Abomasnow was last, who hit me with Woodhammer. Luckily the combo of poison, and massive recoil from Woodhammer were enough to KO it. Healed after that, and went to the lake. Spoke to Matthew (rival), and flew to Veilstone. Cleaned out TG from their TG Veilstone Bldg, and reached Cyrus. Ambipom swept him, and I got the Masterball. Toxicroak swept Saturn, and I released the Lake trio. Left, flew to Orebourgh, and I am currently scaling Mt. Coronet in hopes of destroying TG's plot.

Current team:
Sidney/Ambipom♀ - lvl 47
Achilles/Toxicroak♂ - lvl 47
Zephyr/Honchkrow♀ - lvl 47
PotHead/Roserade♂ - lvl 47
Ronald/Gastrodon♂ - lvl 47
HotStuff/Rampardos♂ - lvl 47

Well I've had a very busy few days on Pokémon so firstly:

I started a new save on Emerald so I could rush through the game and start breeding for an Octillery. Earlier today I beat the E4 with a hall of fame debut of: 10:44:50. I caught a few Remoraids and found a decent Modest female with a flawless Sp.Def stat and a male with flawless Def and 29 HP. I'm currently on the 2nd generation with a father who has flawless Def/Sp.Def and a mother with flawless Sp.Def and 29HP who is Modest.

More on the 4th gen topic:

I ordered a new copy of Platinum yesterday for Ł20.00 so I was pretty happy with the price as I have recently lost my Platinum to the Sea. :/

In preparation for Platinum (which should be here tomorrow) I bred some Pokés so I could have a fun team to play through the game with. I bred a Scyther, Charmander and Staryu but they're still in their eggs, I did a process of getting 5 eggs and saving, then hatching to find out which one was the best and resetting and placing that egg in a dedicated box.

Well I'm currently continuing the breeding process, hopefully I'll be done tonight and my new Octillery can wreak some havoc. =]

Well I got a lot done today on Diamond, basically in short I beat a gym, did the Spear Pillar thing, tried the Elite Four with an underleveled team and did suprisingly well.

After I beat Candice I headed for Mt Coronet. Made it to the top, but used about ten Super Repels after I searched the entire thing. Found a lot of stuff too so it was worth it. Struggled in the 2v2 as my Rival would only stat up and get killed before attacking. Made it to Cyrus, so glad the Rival healed me, even though he was easier then the other two. Killed Dialga because I won't use it. Flew home, healed, and went to Sunyshore. By the time I got there my team was lvl 51. Challenged Volkner after besting all the trainers. Honchkrow was up first and took down Raichu with a crit Night Slash. Same for Ambipom after he Shock Wave'd me. Octillery was easy, didn't use an electric attack. Luxray got in an Ice Fang but was 2HKOd by Night Slash. Healed and Surfed to Victory Road. Beat all the trainers and got out with the team at lvl 53. Beat my Rival no challenge there. Challenged the Elite Four to train and made it all the way to the Champion but was killed. Currently training everyone to lvl 55.

HotStuff/Rampardos♂ - lvl 55
Achilles/Toxicroak♂ - lvl 54
Zephyr/Honchkrow♀ - lvl 55

I got what I have been waiting for - A Modest Remoraid with 31 IVs in HP/Sp.Atk/Sp.Def, 26 in Def, 21 in Speed and 8 in Atk. I am really pleased with him, shows that hard work eventually pays off.

Anyways I've rare candied him to level 97 and nicknamed him 'ORISHIGANE' ready to be transferred to Diamond for EV training.

On another note, Platinum arrived and I got started on there. 2 badges so far, I've been mainly pre-occupied with Diamond as Octillery is on there.

Well, i got Diamond yesterday, finally. Just about to take on Wake after beating all the trainers in the gym, and ill try it without healing. New addition to the team is Skorupi, which took about half an hour to (eventually) catch. So after the gym battle, it looks like training for Skorupi

Luxray - Lv.31
Skorupi - Lv.24
Staravia - Lv.30
Shellos - Lv.29
Bronzor - Lv.29
Torterra - Lv.33

and a Bidoof as a HM slave :)

Whee! Just beat the third gym, I was hoping for Chingling to evolve, but sadly, she didn't :( Despite that though, my Drifloon evolved into Drifblim <3

Then I was kind enough to spare a moment to help Lucas retrieve his pokedex, once again, Chingling didn't evolve but Munchlax did! Grotle's getting to a place where he's going to evolve, but I want him to stay as a Grotle so I can have one on my pokemon ranch.

I also put Buizel in the PC as I really want to use a different water type pokemon, I'll probably grab a Finneon later instead, and if that flops, I'll return to Buizel.

A lot has happened since my last post..
Specifically, my team has changed significantly.
Lv.39 Luxray
Lv.38 Torterra
Lv.38 Skorupi
Lv.25 Gible
Lv.16 Riolu
Lv.34 Snover (which gave my team pokerus! :D)

Anyways, back to the game. Wake fell easily to Torterra. Had a few minormproblems with Fantina, but managed to pull though (I love my Luxray, most useful pokemon by far). Byron was actually easier than i expected. Do now, ive defeated the TG Admins at Lakes Valor and Verity, and i'm on my way to Lake Acuity, and Snowpoint. Not going to let Gible Evolve 'til Lv.37, so it knows Dragon Rush early on. As an bonus,

With Choice Scarf, it's an excellet revenge killer for the BT ^^
Gonna train a Lucario next.

Just got a shiny Growlithe from chaining. :D I'm so happy, I've been trying to get it for so long! It came at a 14 chain. Now my Diamond is in sleep mode; I will continue the chain later.

My brother lost his Platinum version, so I'm letting him use my spare Diamond version. He's soft resetting for a shiny Azelf on it.

Spent a lot of the time on the GTS - I got a roserade for a piplup on my pearl version and a cherubi for a glameow on my diamond. I also caught the last of the lake trio - mesprit - on my pearl using a level 58 wobbuffet that has previously helped me catch Latios and Latias on Sapphire & Emerald as well as mesprit and cresselia on diamond. I still haven't trained up for Volkner yet, my pearl team is still about the 50/51 mark. Need to do some training!

Well after doing completly nothing on the game apart from wi-fi, I decided to see how good I would be in the battle tower with just random dudes from my box ( Yes they were ev'd). So I just picked 3 guys that I thought would be goo. So I chose Max def Blissy with t-wave and no toxic, SD Garchomp with sash and a special attacker in Zapdos. After winning the first 21 battles I decided I should try some one I haven't used . So I got a specs Magmortor and it really helped my team. It was a bit hard to predict what the last pokemon was because of my specs but I managed ok. I eventually went to 75 wins and I lost, because I thought for some reason that my Garchomp could survive a ice beam from a Swampert. Then I went and Focus Blast the swampert but it missed and yeah the game was over.

Thinking that I could do better I decided to go scramble style in the BT. I have now got a 42 win victory and I my last team consitted of Blastoise, Azelf and Salamence.

I am hoping for a another 75+ victory. OH and BTW if someone could pick 3 numbers between 1-88 and send it to me via vistor message that would be great.

3rd July 2009, 7:50 PM
EDIT: As I was bored, I started a Scramble Challenge. As I was given Torterra, I chose Turtwig as my starter. On my way back to Twinleaf from Sandgem, I caught a female Starly, as I was given a Staraptor. I raised both to Lv.8 before entering Jubilife, and 10 before going to Route 203. I beat my rival easily, and before challenging Roark, got my team to Lv.14, meaning Starly evolved. As I was going to Eterna Forest, I got my team to Lv.18, and with that Turtwig became Grotle. I got my team to Lv.20, using the partnership with Cheryl as a training session. Staravia went to war in the Eterna Gym, beating every trainer including Gardenia. I am now on my way to defeat Jupiter.

Current Team:
Grotle Lv.21
Staravia Lv.24
Bidoof Lv.4(HM Slave)

Recently restarted my Pearl version.
I beat the first four gyms, but can't find Fantina again. In the meantime, i'm just training my team, which so far, consists of four pokemon, with hopefully a fifth coming from a trade. I'm getting proper natures for all of them so I don't have to do it later.
So far, my team is this:
Monferno
Roselia
Gyarados
Scyther (hopefully Scizor soon)
Staravia (HM Slave - fly, defog)
Bidoof ( Cut, Rock Smash - A bibarel would probably do a better job here)

I've spent the past two days trying to get 1,000 pokemon in My Pokemon Ranch to get a Mew. I already had 200 pokemon in the ranch before yesterday, and I had up to box 9 full, but now I've gotten up to box 17. Its so boring just running around catching everything you encounter. Ugghhhhhhhh....I still have a couple hundred more pokemon to go.

Also, I went into the Pokemon League building to buy some more quick balls, but I wasnt paying attention so I just kept pressing up as I walked into the buildng so I ended up walking right into the Elite 4. :P
Good thing I had my lv.84 Drifblim with me to kick their butts.

Now I need to try again, and grab a male Starly too.

I did use all of them to beat my Rival. =P

Gonna Train Eevee a bit more on Route 203 till he's Lvl 15. Then I'm gonna get the rest to Lvl 15 and then try and beat Roark... (Yeah right >.> )

Finally beat the Elite Four in Diamond after a long haitus from it, because of Platinum, XD, Silver, and Emerald. It was ok, after I was beaten by Cynthia with my team at lvl 55, I trained them all to lvl 60, and went for it again.

Aaron; Lets see, he was really easy, as HotStuff, Zephyr, and PotHead all did the job.
Bertha; Thanks to Ronald's immunity to Sandstorm and PotHeads GigaDrain, I wasn't touched by Bertha.
Flint; Ronald took down Rapidash and Infernape, although Infernape did some damage. Sidney destroyed Lopunny thanks to Fake Out and Double Hit, and Payback slayed Drifblim. Ronald had no trouble with Steelix.
Lucian; He was a challenge. Zepyhr avoided Mr. Mimes Thunderbolt and KO'd him with Night Slash. Thankfully his Alakazam doesn't have Inner Focus, so Sidney KO'd him. Ronald wore down Bronzong in combo with PotHead's Leech Seed. Girafarig was KO'd by Achilles' Sucker Punch, and Medicham by Zephyr's Fly.
Cynthia; Worn down by PotHead's Leech Seed and Giga Drain. Lucario KO'd by HotStuff. Milotic/Gastrodon KO'd by PotHead's Leech Seed. Roserade KO'd by PotHead and its HP Flying. Garchomp KO'd by Leech Seed/Surf/Toxic Spikes.

Final Team;
PotHead (Roserade) - Giga Drain/HP Flying/Toxic Spikes/Leech Seed
I like Roserade, but it would have been better had I bred for a better HP or Extrasensory

HotStuff (Rampardos) - Rock Slide/Earthquake/Zen Headbutt/Strength
Despite being a "glass cannon", it KO'd everything in sight, and fainted less than Toxicroak. Love it.

Achilles (Toxicroak) - Poison Jab/Sucker Punch/Swagger/Revenge
Meh, he was ok, but Poison isn't a great STAB and he fainted alot.

Zephyr (Honchkrow) - Night Slash/Steel Wing/Wing Attack/Fly
Yeah, I like him too, he looks cool and hits hard.

Sidney (Ambipom) - Fake Out/Double Hit/Brick Break/Payback
Absolutely love Ambipom. Fake Out + Technician is a godsend.

Ronald (Gastrodon) - Surf/Waterfall/HP Ghost/Mud Bomb
A sturdy Water type, but needs a stronger special Ground move.

Now, I am sitting in my room, planning a new Diamond team.

I've been doing training out of Oreburgh City. My team is getting stronger, as Psy evolved into Espeon. I'm training my team to level 15 so I have a little bit of edge against Roark. I transferred over my last Egg, an Electrike, to Diamond. I also developed my own formula for calculating happiness.

The method is: Take your number of steps and divide it by 256. (256 raises a Pokemon's happiness by one) Add how many levels your Pokemon has gained and multiply it by two. (A Pokemon gains 2 happiness points when it gains a level) Next, you add the base happiness, 70, and you have your Pokemon's current happiness level.

Team:
Psy (Espeon) Lv.14
Zubat Lv.13
Treecko Lv.13
Horsea Lv.13
Electrike Lv.13

Diamond: I was bored with my scramble challenge and had the urge to use a Vespiquen for some reason, so I started over. I played through the begining of the story line, and chose Piplup as my starter. As I entered the battle, I saw nothing out of the ordinary, UNTIL, that is, my Piplup was sent out. *Insert Piplup's cry here**Insert shining entering battle sound*. I was so shocked that I forgot what I was about to do, and just gazed at it. Other than that, I haven't done anything of interest.

Pearl: Just been chaining, and have had numerous failed attempts. I have, however, begun a Charmander breeding project in hopes of obtaining a Shining one to add to my "Shining Dex".

6th August 2009, 11:04 PM
Since my last post, I have beaten Roark and Gardenia.

I used mainly My Eevee to beat Roark's Onix and Geodude... then landed one hit on Cranidos. (Usng nothing but Shadow Ball) Then brung out my Staravia (he Evolved after a bit of traning around Jublife), and attacked it a bit with Wing attack, 2 hits then Staravia fanited, and brung out my Chimchar, Using 2 embers I finaly finished off Cranidos.

Grabbed a Bidoof for my Rock smashing. and headed to Floroma then into Eterna.
Between that, My Shinx and chimchar both Evolved, 2 times Eevee tried evolving into a Leafeon, but I cancelled the every time.

Beat Gardina, using my Monfeno and Staravia... and the Trainers before them I used mainly Eevee again.

(Heres where it get extreamly brief)

Got bicycle, Vs Seeker & Dowsing App, got to Hearthome & Beat Rival, After beating my Rival Eevee Tried evolving into an Espeon, Cancelled that. Traveled to Solaceon town hours later (I took a break from the game) And used a spare Rare Candy I remembered getting on Eevee and Evoled him into an Umbreon!
(Brief-ness end)

Now, with my newly Evolved Umbreon, I (after a bit of help from my brother) Understood that Umbreon was best as a wall for my team, I however, Loving Umbreon so much thought, Sod that, So Now I'm heading into Solaceon Ruins and train on the Unknown there, to gain Attack and Sp Attack EVs for Umbre'.

Current Team:

In party:

Umbreon ~ Virgil: Lvl 25

In computer:

Monferno ~ Blake: Lvl 20
Staravia: Lvl 20
Luxio ~ Ryuken: Lvl 20
Bidoof: Lvl 4 (just to get me this far he is soon gonna go bye bye)

Finally restarted my Diamond file today after I realised a team full of Eevee's is really rather boring. Started on Diamond, named Lance, chose Chimchar for a challenge. Bred the team on my Pearl, and traded the eggs over. Hatched them all and currently training them to lvl 10 on Route 201. Everyone is doing well except Dratini, as his only physical move is Wrap, but he does have Flamethrower which will be good for now as my plan is he will be all physical. Magikarp was traded back to Pearl to evolve into Gyarados. Here is my current team;

;004; [Naive] - lvl 5 - Flamethrower/Outrage/Dragon Dance/Leer
;116; [Modest] - lvl 5 - Bubble/Dragonbreath/Dragon Rage/Smokescreen
;129; [Adamant] - lvl 1 - Splash
;147; [Adamant] - lvl 5 - Flamethrower/Wrap/Dragon Dance/Thunderwave
;328; [Adamant] - lvl 5 - Earthquake/Dig/Bite/Sand Attack
;443; [Adamant] - lvl 5 - Outrage/Earthquake/Tackle/Sand Attack

Going to enter Jubilife City once I hit lvl 10 and recieve Gyarados back from Pearl.

After I trained my team to lvl 10, I entered Jubilife City, ignoring what Dawn had to say. Healed up, beat the trainer school trainers with Dratini, and the trainers north with Gible. Got the Poketch, and headed for Orebourgh, beating all trainers. Healed after meeting Rick (my rival) at the gym. Trained everyone in the mine to lvl 15, and beat the mine trainers. Charmander evolved. Trapinch took down the gym trainers and Horsea took down Roark by OHKO'ing Geodude and Onix with Water Gun and 2HKO'ing Cranidos with Water Gun. Currently saved standing next to Roark.

Pearl: Well, long story short, I rushed through and completed this game, finally obtaining six of the seven pokemon I needed to complete my Living Pokedex, which brings me to...

Diamond: One pokemon away from a Living Pokedex (excluding Celebi and Arceus); I just need a Bastiodon, and I'm about halfway there at this point...

EDIT: Scratch that; I thought that Shieldon evolved at level 40, but it just did at level 31, meaning that my Living Pokedex is now officially complete (or as complete as it legitimately can be at this point)! Now to focus on Pearl, to obtain all the alternate forms of the various pokemon (different through gender, Wormadam forms, etc.), then on to Platinum!

8th August 2009, 9:10 PM
So...yeah, I brought a pre-owned Diamond version, which just so happens to have both Deoxys AND Shaymin on it. Presuming I trade both to my Pearl, I will then have 492/493 of my Pokedex. Pretty dang awesome.

Once I do that, I'll restart the Diamond version.

Workin' my way through Pearl to get alternate gender forms. At the moment, all I need is:

Politoed (f): Find a King's Rock and trade.
Rhyperior (f): Trade.
Meganium (f): Breed and train a Chikorita.
Ledyba (f): Breed a Ledian.
Ambipom (f): Get Aipom from a Honey Tree and evolve it.
Piloswine (f): Wait for a swarm of Swinub, or breed it, then train it.
Mamoswine (f): (same as Piloswine)
Donphan (f): Level up my female Phanpy
Torchic (f): Breed.
Combusken (f): Breed and level up a Torchic.
Blaziken (f): Breed and level up a Torchic.
Gulpin (f): Wait for it to show up in the Great Marsh, or breed it.
Swalot (f): Wait for Gulpin to show up in the Great Marsh, or breed it, and level it up.
Relicanth (f): Breed. (1/8 chance of finding a female in the wild with a 5% appearance rate? Not worth the time of capturing.)
Gabite (f): Level up my female Gible.
Garchomp (f): Level up my other female Gible.
Doduo (m): Wait for them to swarm, or breed.
Dodrio (m): Wait for Doduo to swarm, or breed one, then level it up.
Hypno (m): Wait for Drowzee to swarm, or breed one, then level it up.
Tangrowth (m): Get from Platinum, or breed, then level it up.
Xatu (m): Wait for it to swarm, or breed, then level it up.
Aipom (m): Get from a Honey Tree.
Gligar (m): Breed. (They really really really don't like to show up in the wild at all.)
Heracross (m): Get from a Honey Tree.
Milotic (m): Breed. (For obvious reasons.)

It's annoying that almost all of the males I need are either swarms, found on Honey Trees, or are only in Platinum... But oh well. Such is the life of a collector such as myself...

I have to ask:
Why do you need one of each gender of every Pokémon?

I have to ask:
Why do you need one of each gender of every Pokémon?

Not of EVERY pokemon; that'd be insane. I'm just getting the ones that have gender differences, just so that I have absolutely everything. I mean, I've already got a whole legit Living Pokedex in Diamond; I've gotta have something to keep me busy in Pearl, or there's no point in playing it (cuz grinding's just no fun). Platinum's got the Battle Frontier, so that'll keep me busy after I've beaten it until HGSS comes out (and even before then, I want to go back to Sapphire so that I can build up a team there to take on the Hoenn Battle Frontier since I've never beaten it and and want to... plus it'll help me complete my Berry collection).

I just like collecting all the different stuff throughout the games, that's all.

(If you think my alternate-gender collecting is nuts, you should see the list of shinies I want. :P)

My cracked screen has a novel side effect of making me unable to see the second health bar in double battles.

Regardless, I have had significant training along the various routes around Veilstone and Pastoria. Still stuck on two badges.

I decided to pick up my Diamond version, which I've restarted and neglected for about a month now. I beat Byron and made my way to Snowpoint City to battle Candice. I defeated her with the following team:

Infernape **Carson (Level 40)
Nature: Hasty
Close Combat
Mach Punch
Ember
Flame Wheel

Staraptor **Verne (Level 38)
Nature: Adamant
Aerial Ace
Fly
Quick Attack

Gyarados **Gina (Level 38)
Nature: Impish
Earthquake
Thunder
Surf
Ice Fang

Roselia **Sophie (Level 38)
Nature: Gentle
Absorb
Toxic
Mega Drain
Stun Spore

Luxray **Lawrence (Level 39)
Nature: Adamant
Tackle
Spark
Charge
Crunch

My team isn't anything out of the ordinary or exceptional, but they got through game so far, so I'm satisfied.

16th August 2009, 12:10 AM
@Ohshi: Just give it a couple of months or so; they'll give out a legit Arceus at TRU, most likely.

Finally got around to breeding everything I needed to in Pearl. The only things left for me to wait for are Honey Tree pokemon and Swarming pokemon; the rest I just need to level up, or wait for Wiki Berries to grow (Feebas needs his Dry Poffins, after all).

Well I haven't done much today but yesterday I was playing around in the trophy garden. It was Eevee today so I tried to get some more so I could have all the evolutions. It was really boring and I only managed to get 4, so that was a bit annoying. I tried a bit of chaining there as well, but I'm no good at it and my chains kept breaking. Eventually I decided to stop and what was the first pokemon I saw after stopping using the pokeradar? A shiny Staravia of course. Irony is always accepted gratefully.

So then I started trying to make one of the Eevee happy to evolve it into Umbreon, didn't work, still at no hearts on friendship checker app. I'll evolve it tonight for sure.

And this morning I just went through those routes on the big north eastern island that lead to Stark Mountain. I'll go in there sooner or later.

Started breeding for a Modest Horsea with x/x/x/31/x/31. So far I have Modest Horsea's with a Speed IV with 31, because of the father Garchomp with x/31/x/x/x/31.

17th August 2009, 4:42 AM
Leveled up a TON of stuff today; the only two pokemon I still have left to evolve are a female Torchic to Blaziken and a male Feebas to a Milotic. Afterwards, I just have to wait for swarms and Honey Tree pokemon (which I may get tonight), and then I'll be all set with everything. I also managed to catch two Burmys, which is helpful since that'll eventually get me all three forms of Wormadam...

Leveling a LOT of starters that i got from my friend, such as Chikorita (now its Meganium), Cyndaquil (now it's Typhlosion), Treecko (now it's Sceptile), and Mudkip (now it's Swampert).

And catch a Meowth in Trophy Garden yesterday, today i get an Eevee! XD

17th August 2009, 5:12 PM
Yay, I caught two Aipom and evolved my female Torchic into a Blaziken! Now all I need are Heracross, Milotic, and three different swarm pokemon, and I'm done with everything (except Tangela, that *******... Oh, and Gulpin...). Then, once I'm done, it's back to Hoenn to work on that sig of mine...

I think it was a dumb idea to catch a Pachirisu but whatever... hopefully it'll turn out alright once I get a special attack on it. other than that, training up a Misdreavus right now. need to get it to level 23 so it at least has a decent attack (that being Psybeam), because PsyWAVE and Astonish just don't cut it for me. :\

I made up a "theme team" of colourful Johto Pokemon. My planned team is Ampharos, Togekiss (evolution of a Johto Pokemon so it counts, right?), Politoed, Bellossom, Lanturn & Xatu. The only Pokemon I need now are Politoed (I have a Poliwhirl and King's Rock, I just need to trade with someone) and Bellossom (I have a Gloom and Sun Stone, not evolving it until it learns Petal Dance). When my team reaches about Lv 55-60, I'll battle against the elite 4 or something.

23rd August 2009, 8:39 AM
Came back to pearl to finish off my team that I never got round to finishing. I've been stuck without a special tank for months, but I did eventually breed and EV train a calm Venusaur, and now I can stop filling that last spot on my PBR team with a shiny Palkia.
But now I have to train him and my Donphan up to level 62 to match the rest of them. Venusaur wasn't hard, but Donphan is. I can't seem to find anywhere where I can efficiently gain levels with him. Grr.

Currently trying to breed Na&#239;ve Sniper Horsea with x/31/x/x/x/x/31, and its not great. I'm suprised a Horsea with both perfect IVs hasn't shown up yet, the father has it, while they both have perfect speed. Gotta find something that will breed with Horsea that has a perfect Special Attack IV for another set.

Finally hatched a perfect Naive Horsea as a mother, with x/31/x/x/x/31. Now I have to wait to hatch a perfect Male Sniper Naive Horsea, wish me luck!

I picked up my Pearl cartridge for the first time in a while. Confused, I went to Mt. Coronet trying to move some boulders. I thought I had the Mine Badge for Strsngth, but, after catching a Bibarel, no rocks were moved. So I went west to Canalave City after fighting a couple of Fisherman. I caught up with the rival and annilihated him and leved up my Skorupi (recently obtained) to 27. I trained my Crobat, Gyrados, Luxray, and Torterra to Lv. 35 and proceeded to respectfully demolish the trainers. Byron was last as I Sparked his Bronzor with Luxray, Aqua Tail'd the Steelix with Gyrados, and 1HKO'd his Bastiodon with a powerful Earthquake from Torterra. Tomorrow, I will go to Iron Island for some intense training.

After I hatched the perfect Naďve Horsea mother with x/31/x/x/x/31, I tossed it in with my Garchomp father with x/31/x/x/x/31 and after 15+ eggs, I got a Naďve Male Sniper Horsea. I EV trained it pretty quickly, in about an hour, and leveled it up to learn Hydro Pump and Dragon Dance. Evolved it into Kingdra, and trained in various places. This thing is a beast. I leveled it to lvl 95, and started breeding a Naughty Female Trapinch with x/31/x/x/x/31 and my Male Scizor with 31/31/31/x/x/31, and after 10 eggs, I got a Naughty Trapinch with x/31/x/x/x/31. EV trained it in about an hour, and currently leveling it up. It is at lvl 62. Traded Kingdra and Flygon to Plat to tutor both in Outrage and tutor Flygon in Fire Punch. Next project is a Jolly Dragonite with x/31/x/x/x/31, and an Altaria, I don't have a moveset yet.

A whole lot of stuff has happened. First I trained Gyrados, Luxray, and Torterra to Lv. 40 for some dominance over the Galactic goons. I watched the events unravel and went to the eastern Lake. Fought and defeated Saturn, then I went to the wesrern Lake, stopped Mars there with a royal smackdown, then headed to Mt. Coronet. After a small hike, I emerged and saw the cold. It took a bit to traverse the routes, but I finally reached Snowpoint City. After the puzzles, I faced Candace and won. Went to the northern Lake then traversed Mt. Coronet. Took a liitle bit, but I finally reached the top. I managed to capture Palkia with a Great Ball, thusly saving the world.

Got two more pokemon done for my Dragon monotype challenge. Spent almost all day breeding, as I had to breed Dratini/Bagon with my Naive Ditto until a female appeared, and breed the female with my Kingdra with x/31/x/x/x/31 until the baby female had either perfect Speed or Attack, and breed that until a baby female with perfect stats in both stats like I did with Dratini, or have a male with both perfect IVs pop up, in Bagon's case. EV trained both, and both evolved into Dragonair and Shelgon respectively. Currently at lvl 30.

@Raichao, what's the theme?

I restarted Diamond today. Started, named Jenny, did all the stuff. Went to the lake, got the Pokedex, and got Pokeballs from Lucas. Caught a Starly and Bidoof to trade to Pearl for some eggs. Hatched them, trained to lvl 5 on Route 201. Got to Jubilife, been playing about an hour;

;004; lvl 8 Na&#239;ve - Flamethrower/Outrage/Dragon Dance/Dragon Rage
;258; lvl 8 Adamant - Waterfall/Ice Ball/Curse/Mud Slap.

I'll update after I beat Roark. Feel free to PM me with nicknames for them, they are both male.

EDIT;

I passed through Jubilife, went north beating those trainers. Went to Orebourgh, got both to lvl 13 after beating all the trainers. Went to the Mine, Charmander getting to lvl 15. Met Roark in the Mine, went to the Gym, and Mudkip solo'd the trainers and Roark with Waterfall. After I got the badge, I went to the recently blocked off part of Orebourgh Gate. Got all the items, and helped Lucas in Jubilife. Beat the trainers, both evolved, got to Floaroma town, and beat the TG Grunts at the Valley Windworks. Healed, and went to Eterna Forest, beating all the trainers with Marshtomp. Got to Eterna City with Marshtomp at lvl 22 and Charmeleon at lvl 20. Charmeleon beat all the Gym trainers, reached lvl 22 before challenging Gardenia. OHKO'd all of them with Flamethrower, Charmeleon jumped to lvl 23.

;005; lvl 23 Na&#239;ve - Flamethrower/Outrage/Dragon Dance/Dragon Rage
;259; lvl 22 Adamant - Waterfall/Ice Ball/Curse/Mud Shot

Been playing about 2 and a half hours.

I was playing in the battle tower with one of my Sunny Day Teams (Nidoqueen, Ninetales, Venusaur) yesterday. I think it was around match 15 and the guy's first Poke is a Torkoal, I think "Just great for setting up on!". My lead is a shiny nidoqueen and here is how the battle went:

Nidoqueen uses Sunny Day
Torkoal uses Ember deals around 12%
Nidoqueen uses Stealth Rock
Torkoal uses Ember deals around 12%

Luke switches Nidoqueen with Ninetails
Torkoal uses ember, it activates Ninetales' Flash Fire
Ninetales uses Nasty Plot
Torkoal uses smokescreen
Ninetales uses Flamethrower deals 100%

(Blank) sends out hitmontop
Ninetales uses Flamethrower deals 100%

(Blank) sends out Solrock
Ninetales uses Flamethrower deals 100%


50% from sunny day + STAB + Nasty Plot + charcoal + Flashfire= Pwntales :D

5th September 2009, 5:53 PM
I got bored and traded out my Shining Prinplup, and then restarted. This time I thought I'd make it a bit more challenging. I decided to only use Pokemon found before the first badge. I started with Piplup, as I didn't want to use Bibarel or Gyarados, and nicknamed it Emperor. The first Pokemon I caught was a Starly, which I named Raptor. After a bit of searching, I finally managed to find a Male Shinx with Intimidate. Caught it and named it Flash. I, before heading to the Trainer's school, went to catch a Budew. Managed to catch a male one with Poison Point. As I hit okay after naming it, I realized I'd accidently misspelled the name as "Toxen" instead of "Toxin". As soon as I got to Eterna, I'm going to rename it with the correct spelling. Upon beating my rival, I went into the grass of Route 203 to find a male Abra. When I found it, I chucked a pokeball at it, and suprisingly caught it without any effort. I nicknamed it Psy while thinking to myself how it would be awesome if it was holding a Twistedspoon, and lo and behold, it was holding one. Once I made it to Oreburgh, I immediately went to Route 207 and caught myself a male Machop, which I nicknamed Champ. I got everybody to Lv.14, causing Raptor to evolve, and beat Roark. As I was heading back to Jubilife, I was forced to battle a trainer that I for some reason hadn't beaten yet. Emperor evolve after this battle. I beat the two Galactic Grunts in Jubilife, and made my wait to Floaroma Town. Upon beating the Grunt in front of the Valley Windworks, Flash evolved. I'm now going to do some more training before battling the grunts in the Meadow.

Current Team:
Emperor(Prinplup)-Lv.16
Raptor(Staravia)-Lv.16
Flash(Luxio)-Lv.15
Psy(Abra)-Lv.14 W/Twistedspoon
Champ(Machop)-Lv.14

Rushed over towards Barry's place.
We went together towards Lake Verity.

Saw Prof. Rowan & Dawn there and they went towards Sandgem Town without the briefcase.

So Barry & I, looked in the Briefcase of Prof. Rowan and I chose my first pokémon..........
Chimchar

Won my first battle against a level 2 Starly.
While Barry chose a Piplup and he won his battle.

Prof. Rowan let us keep the pokémon we used earlier, so I got my first pokemon!
Chimchar

Went to my mom's, did a little bit of resting at home, also got my Running Shoes.
Went the next day towards Sandgem Town, while heading towards Sandgem Town, I did a little bit of training with my Chimchar.
Leveled Chimchar up towards level 6.
Arrived at Sandgem Town, got greeted by Dawn and we went towards Prof. Rowan's Lab.
Prof. Rowan gave me my Chimchar and I nicknamed him "The2Bizzle", he also gave me my Pokédex.
Dawn told me she had a Turtwig, she also showed me around the town.

Went back towards my mom, to let her know I was going away on a long adventure and told her that she shouldn't stay up tonight.
Barry's mom gave me a parcel to deliver to Barry.

Went from Twinleaf Town towards Sandgem Town, did some training in between. (Still 'The2Bizzle' is at level 6).
Once I arrived at Sandgem Town, I went towards the Pokemon Center to heal my 'The2Bizzle' and I continued my journey towards Jublife City.

Came to route 202, Dawn teached me how to catch a pokemon and gave me 5 pokeballs.

I've never done any EV training in my life, but after hearing how helpful it is, i intend to start.

I decided to start by EV training a Trapinch, but i don't have one, however i've seen one... somewhere... so i grabbed one of the many starters i breed just so i can put them on the GTS - a Treecko i nicknamed Arumat - and put it on the GTS.

Now, i wait...

Once i get a Trapinch off the GTS, i'm gonna breed it to get one with a naughty nature - again, i never usually care about that, but i think i should start - and then i'm gonna give it the Experience Share and battle until it's about level 30, then i'll start EV training it properly.

Prince Amrod
7th September 2009, 6:02 PM
itll gain ev's from the exp share. if you want to ev train it properly then start from lv1 nd use another pokemon to do the actual battling. either have the trapinch as the lead nd switch it out or use the exp share, either way it will gain the same amount of ev's unless u use power items, pokerus or the macho brace

Gary (Garchomp) lv.71
Magnus (Magnezone) lv.71
Celia (Walrein) lv.71
Loom (Breloom - shiny) lv.71

Only took 103 hours and over a year of on-and-off playing...:D Needless to say, though, I breezed through the Elite challenge, and now my pokémon are level 72. I took them to the battle area and now am going through the unlocked part of Victory Road. I'm thinking of raising more pokémon teams to fill up the dex, but I have enough to keep me very much occupied until HG/SS come out!

I've recently restarted my Pearl and everythings going great at the moment, i traded away my starter Pokemon (Turtwig) for two eggs from a nice person on serebii wifi, those two eggs ironicly hatched into the starters Chikorita and Charmander ^^.
I beat Roark and earned my first badge, beat the Galactic grunts and made my way towards Eterna forest,since i have been there i have captured a Buneary and i plan to capture a female Mismagius.

I got around to restarting pearl as I want to get some good natures on the pixies

Just got to Eternia in my new game of Pearl, though I wont even bother with the pixies and just trade them over and back for the dex so I can catch them post E4 and have the National pokedex.

20th September 2009, 1:36 AM
I've been training Zale, and he just got to level 17, so he's all caught up with the rest of my team. :] I'm in Eterna Forest right now with Cheryl, and I'm scouting for a Misdreavus. I have also been using the honey trees in the hopes of capturing a male Burmy so I can get a Mothim.

So my plan of attack is to just take each battle one at a time and do my best to take down my opponents with the help of Cheryl's Chansey.

Currently chaining for Shiny Snover/Sneasel around Lake Acuity. Stupid Medicham just broke a chain of 39 Sneasels and now i don't seem to be able to find Snovers or Sneasels. Ill report back when i get something interesting.

I just started my quest on Pearl today. I've played through a friend's Diamond once before, so I know how the game goes, but I have to admit Sinnoh isn't my favorite region. So, to spice things up on my own Pearl Version, I have decided to take on the Sinnoh League using only Water Pok&#233;mon. I'm really taking my time too, so I have plenty to do between now and when I can get my own SoulSilver Version. Here is my team as of now:

;393; Piplup (Varick)
Male
Level 8
Hardy Nature

I'm training him in the grass on Route 201 before going to meet with Professor Rowan in Sandgem Town.

Platinum: SRing for a shiny Darkrai... must catch it now x.x

Diamond: I am planning to get Diamond version =P Why? Cause I can >.>

Well, I got a Pearl about a week ago, and here's my team:

Prinplup Lv 31
Machoke Lv 28
Electabuzz Lv 30
Scyther Lv 33

Earlier today, I was training my Elekid up, so it would get to Lv 25, but then I got it up to Lv 30, and I got myself an Electabuzz. Also, my Machop evolved into Machoke through training, as well. I entered the Veilstone gym and beat all the trainers, and I'm about to go fight Maylene. With both my Prinplup and Scyther above Lv 30, I really hope they obey me enough so I can get this badge.

Bloody frustrated and I haven't even beaten a trainer yet.

Failed to beat the first trainer in the game three times now, twice due to critical hits and once due to Tackle (95 accuracy) missing 4 times in the one battle.

Alright, big update for me on Platinum.

Been filling the pokedex all week, and being walking around Sinnoh catching various pokemon. While in Iron Island using the insertion method for Mawile, a http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/plmfsa/208.png popped up! Tossed a Master Ball at it (I have plenty to spare). Prayed for a good nature, and;

Steelix @ Brave!
Rock Head!
I don't have access to wifi right now so I cannot get specific IVs, but I did talk to the "Judge" in the Battle Tower, and he told me it has a PERFECT HP IV!!

Anyway, caught some more pokemon, and I started chaining Chansey because I was bored. I had a fainted Yanma w/ CompoundEyes followed by a Banette w/ Frisk, and during a chain of 15 Chanseys, I stole 4 LUCKY EGGS!!

I went into the Great Marsh for an Exeggcute, and while looking for one, I found a http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/plmfsa/195.png!! I was so afraid of it running away, but wasnt really too worried. After 3 balls, I caught it.

Quagsire @ Sassy
Water Absorb!!

So currently I am 5/6 with shinies, but then again, the one I missed was the uncatchable Zigzagoon at the start of Emerald, the one that attacks Birch.

My Pokedex is 400/425 exactly, and about to go and finally catch Darkrai. Maybe might go after Shaymin too, we'll see what happens.

salmonman78
1st October 2009, 11:28 PM
Friend got my some good eggs last night(Charmander, Bulbasaur, Treecko, Gligar, Mudkip and Caterpie). Spent a good while breeding the caterpie(really wanting a shiny of my favorite poke) and got about 20 eggs.

Whole Variety of natures but no shiny ones, next try in a couple days.

Oh, and decided to check out the GTS, and I guess whoever had had this cartridge before I got it set up a trade and nevere did it, as soon as I logged in had a nice lv 100 legit(checked all the info) Dragonite land. Its been a good day

2nd October 2009, 12:45 AM
Platinum: Downloaded Oak's Letter and got to Flower Paradise today. Currently resetting for a Timid/Modest Shaymin with great IV's.

Found a Timid one with 27 HP IV's, but 3 Sp.A IV was a dealbreaker.

Latest Shaymin is Modest with 29 Speed IV's. 16 HP and 19 Sp.A are okay, but I think I could do better.


Edit;; Managed to get a Timid one.

HP: 31
Atk: 17-23 (like it matters)
Def: 9
Sp.A: 16
Sp.D: 30
Sp: 29

Trait: Often dozes off (31 HP)

I caught it in a Heal Ball, which will come in handy if I ever get ahold of a Glacidea flower. Can these Oak's Letter event Shaymin even transform into Skymin? Anyway, it has Hidden Power Ground, which isn't the best... HP Fire is ideal... but Timid 31 HP & 29 Speed was too good to pass up.

Currently EV training in Speed. Only have 80 EV's so far (thank god for Macho Brace). Once I max that out, going to train in Sp.A and HP. I will have a well-trained Pok&#233;mon, damnit! Gawd EV training sucks X_x; I'm so proud of me for having patience, though ^_^

Currently happening on Pokemon Platinum.

>Bought a Power Lens at the Battle Frontier.
>Trained Shaymin to level 60. Wow, it was at 30 three days ago.
>It's not going to be an easy job between now and then once i reach level 100.

Land Forme status: 202/115/134/164/136/180
Sky Forme status: 202/118/104/188/106/216

Basically it goes like this during transformation?


Hit points are null.
Attack differs between 3 points.
Defense differs between 30 points.
Sp. Atk differs between 24 points.
Sp. Def differs between 30 points.
Speed differs between 36 points.


Now is that something for a Timid Shaymin. When it's in land forme, its status are balanced (okay, maybe not attack *laugh*) whereas its Sky branches in special attack and speed!

GengarNightmare
2nd October 2009, 4:40 AM
Incredible.


I decided to head to Spear Pillar and catch Timid variations of Dialga and Palkia because:

1. I've already have Sp. Atk nature variants (both with 31 Sp. Atk, mind you) from my previous file.
2. I'm totally and completely BORED with Platinum, as HGSS takes a little more wind out of Sinnoh every day.

Anyways, I brought my Timid Synchronizer(Umbreon) with me. Not only did I catch Dialga in a Quick Ball without weakening it, it was Timid and had an "Alert to Sounds" characteristic. That's right, I caught a max speed IV Timid Dialga on the first try. I then descended the mountain and deposited Dialga to make room for Palkia, and made the journey back to spear pillar. On the second try (with slightly more effort involved) I caught a max speed Timid Palkia. I never have luck like this, its absolutely astounding.

But now I'm bored again because I planned on this taking up the remainder of the evening, and it took like 15 minutes :/ Maybe I'll go catch Heatran now?

2nd October 2009, 6:48 AM
So again... not much have happened since my last update in my Platinum. Plus, I've been switching over to different games, causing me to not play Platinum very much.

- I finished maxing out my shiny Roserade's Sp. Atk stat and currently maxing out her Speed.
- My ev-trained Altaria was fully levelled up to level 100.
- Weeks ago, I used my Togekiss at the Battle Hall, and I did earn my silver print for beating Argenta after reaching the 50-streak (will post up the video code later), making it 3/5 earned silver prints for me. Currently, I'm still trying to get a silver print from Palmer.
- I transferred 3 of the Pokemon I got from the GTS in my Diamond to my Platinum, thanks to the help of my bestie. Luckily, after getting them hack-checked a couple of weeks back, they're legit.
- I got the Oak's Letter 3 days ago, and the day after, I finally caught a Timid-natured Shaymin after about 25 soft-resets. Then, I've named this Shaymin after my bestie. <3

US Platinum: Caught a Timid Shaymin I was happy with in a Luxury Ball a few days ago after obtaining Oak's Letter...I haven't really done much since then (I only nicknamed Shaymin and infected him and some other Pokémon with the Pokérus). If I decide to play later, I'll either faff around in the Battle Frontier or train something.

UK Platinum: Downloaded Oak's Letter. I haven't caught Shaymin yet, since IDK what Nature I want for it yet.

But me and my Piplup, Varick, have made it to Jubilife City and I'm planning on catching a Magikarp once I get a fishing rod. I may also catch a Bidoof to get its Water type evolution, Bibarel.

Also, I think I'm going to keep Varick as a Piplup. :) I think he's just so cute and he has pretty good stats now, and he's only at level 12. Plus, he's adorable. So yay~

I found out the hard way today that just like the Sphere bag, the Treasure bag can get full too, but luckily it was only a Green Shard, which as it turns out, I have 30 of. Still trying to fill up the Pokedex, found out my Swarm was Cubone, so I went and caught an Adamant Rock Head Male w/ Thick Club on the first try! I have been really lucky lately with Platinum, and I hope it continues.

Well, today on Platinum, I went to go catch Shaymin. Since I didnt get a modest or timid shaymin when I got two of them from TRU earlier this year, I set out to soft reset to get either one of those natures. I got a modest one after about 5 resets.

Well, I had some issues with the Wifi, think the person I was attempting to trade's connection was bonkers but I appreciate him for trying with me. Also got a Regice, though obviously hacked, seems normal enough stats. And thats for Plat for the day

On my diamond though, I set out to Radar me some Ditto, and lord I hit payday. I got 9 dittos from a chain, each one with a different nature, would have kept going but I ran out of pokeballs. Tonight at work if I can, get rotom and some more ditto!

Holy sweet friggin' crap. Beneficial nature. Rock Head. Head Smash. And now I find out that the Aron I got off the GTS (now an Aggron) has a 31 IV IN ATTACK! And almost perfect speed! This is good, for I raised it as a Rock Polish Aggron.

Perfect Attack, Naughty, Rock Head, Head Smash, on the GTS! And it only cost me a Slowking! I will never complain until the GTS ever again!

3rd October 2009, 3:46 AM
That's right, I caught a max speed IV Timid Dialga on the first try.On the second try (with slightly more effort involved) I caught a max speed Timid Palkia.
Alert to sounds =/= guaranteed 31 speed.
It means it could be either 1, 6, 11, 16, 21, 26 or 31.
You should go check at the IV guy in the Battle Frontier if it really has 31 in Speed.

I caught a gorgeous Magikarp and named her Seger. It's going to take a long time for her to catch up to my other Pokemon, Varick, but that's okay. Once she evolves, then I'll be able to train her more personally since she'll be able to hold her own in battles.

So, I just defeated my rival (Spike :P) on Route 203 and am thinking of catching a Bidoof now to get its evolution, Bibarel, before heading off to Oreburgh City.

Platinum: Well, I've started training three more Pokemon, a Beautifly, a Dustox and an Umbreon. The Beautifly and the Dustox will probably not be used much for battle frontier purposes, I'm mostly training them for fun. Also, I'm planning to breed Dustox with a Ledian I caught a while ago so I can get a Ledyba with psybeam, I will do this once Dustox learns toxic so I can get that move for Ledyba too without using a TM.

Beautifly is currently level 30, Dustox is level 27 and Umbreon is level 23.

In Pearl, I beat both Crasher Wake and Fantina, and while traveling through Fog, battling trainers left and right, I got Fly from the Team Galactic Warehouse, and got Surf from Cynthias Grandmother, so I can Surf and Fly, which is good.

As for my team, my Prinplup evolved into Empoleon, and it now knows Aqua Jet and Surf. I needed a Pokemon that knows Fly, so I went and caught a Staravia to Fly me places. I am leveling up my team to battle Byron. I have no Fire type Pokemon, so Im just going to level up my whole team so they average out to 45. Electabuzz is the closest, at Lv 43. Here's my team so far:

Electabuzz Lv 43
Empoleon Lv 38

Now, I'm off to Lake Valor to inspect the explosion and get one step closer to battling Team Galactic in Veilstone.

I have myself an EV trained Gabite at level 47 with Outrage, Earthquake, and Substitute. Just three more levels to go until I can use him at the Battle Frontier as a powerful Garchomp. I also managed to hatch a Swinub egg with a Jolly nature and Snow Cloak. The IVs are good enough for me and I just need to EV train it after I get my Garchomp ready.

Earlier today at the Battle Hall, I decide to give Scizor a shot at victory so I start to battle Fire types. At Rank 7, I come across a Charmeleon thinking I can Superpower it to death. I get ready to use Superpower, but accidentally use Bullet Punch. Charmeleon goes into overkill with Blaze activated Flare Blitz and a critical hit. Scizor- 6 win streak...

I finally got my Shaymin today. Awesome. It has a neutral nature, which in my opinion is very good because I don't care about natures, and I'm going to check, but not worry about its IV's 'cuz I don't care about them either. But I do care about EV's so I'm EV training it in the oh-so-typical Sp. Atk and speed. huzzah, huzzah.

EDIT: Meh, just 'cuz. I just checked it's IV's and just my luck, its got 1/28/8/31/5/28

Tried to catch Shaymin with a level 58 false swiping Garchomp, but failed due to leech seed. Then I put in my Quilava, flame wheeled a few times, Shaymin used leech seed followed by two magical leafs, and I caught it on my 3rd Ultra ball at an orange health level. Lucky I guess.

1) The Shaymin Wi-Fi event thingy stared a week ago, but I only got it a week after. Some flood prevented me from going on Wi-Fi for a whole week. At least now, I got it.

I decided to leave Shaymin alone for now until I find a use for it. Yeah, I'm one of those people who care about stats and junk. I gotta wait for the right time...


2) My cousin offered to level up some Pokemon of mine. In return, he expects me to breed certain Pokemon since he keeps hearing about how well I IV-Breed for Pokemon... He also expects me to EV-Train them and level them up to a certain level... My gosh...

He asked me for a Timid Starmie, an Altaria, a Jolly Floatzel, and a Jolly Flygon... I'm currently EV-Training the last Pokemon, namely Trapinch... Haven't made much progress due to loads of distractions, including my new Nintendo Wii.

When I finish, I'm definitely taking a break from Pokemon Breeding... My gosh...

Well, I started EV training Skymin, but since I usually don't save when EV training my Pokemon, fearing I'll forget how many EP's it has, I decided to keep my DS in my pocket all day (which probably explains why my L and R buttons don't work), which I always do. I forgot that I hadn't saved in a while, and to my surprise, when I got home and took it out of my pocket the cartridge had been ejected, thus turning the system off. Now I gotta start ALL OVER AGAIN. ...woohoo

I figured out what to do for my Platinum Journey Post 100. A battle, but a special one at that. I picked the Pokemon to use for the battle and I went crazy with breeding for nature and IVs. After hatching about 500 eggs in a week, I got one Pokemon with a good nature and here are the IVs:
31 HP
31 Attack
31 Defense
31 Special Attack
15 Special Defense
31 Speed
(All legit, but I wasn't expecting these results. I just decided to take it.)

Now I just have to EV train it, but not right now. So close to perfect IVs in all the stats.

Last post I mentioned beating the Tower Tycoon for the Gold Print. For those who want to watch, the video number is: 99-85554-37696.

It has been sometime since I've last been here. Here is a stats update on my Shaymin.

Land Forme (Timid) level 67

224/128/149/182/151/201

Basically I'm training in victory road and during my time with sky forme shaymin, it actually gained 5 EV points for speed and it went to 234....If I am correct. Too bad I can't update the sky forme right now since it reverted to its original once i fought a golbat. but hey, guess what the IV calculator says!

20/6/15/31/18/31

The bold is at max, however for some reason the red highlights it an error even though it's not.

Dang it, where was the site that had the list of IVs or EVs per pokemon that gave you a value of 3's,2's and 1's?

Here's my recent happenings in Pearl:

I went to the site of the explosion, beat Team Galactic, then finally went back to Veilstone City to attack Team Galactic HQ. The Majority of it wasn't even that hard, just a lot of Golbats, Stunkys and Glamoews. :P So I beat Cyrus, and got the Master Ball. After that, I made the trek to Mt. Coronet to go to Snowpoint. That was a really good day for my Scyther, finding out that her X Scissor was super effective against Ice types, and that Snovers (being part grass) and fighting-types were weak against her Wing Attack and Air Slash attacks. That gave her a lot of experience, boosting her to Lv 50.

So with my Scyther's new found power against Ice types, I thought "why not unleash it against Candice?" Which I did, and she wiped the floor with the Ice Pokemon in the Snowpoint gym. Next mission was to go back to Mt Coronet and travel to the Sky Pillar, where I beat Mars and Jupiter and then Cyrus. After that, I caught myself another Palkia. I just recently went to Route 222 and beat all the trainers for experience, made my way to Sunnyshore, and kicked Volkner out of his funk. So here's my team after all that madness:

Electabuzz Lv 54
Empoleon Lv 43
Machoke Lv 45
Scyther Lv 56

Next up: Train to battle the Sunnyshore gym.

In Pearl, I decided to start training my team up to Lv 60. They're be way over-powered for Volkner, but - oh well! I need them to be Lv 60-65 to battle the Elite Four anyway. First up was Electabuzz, and I trained him from Lv 55 to Lv 60. Next up is going to be Machoke. Route 222 is the only place I can think of (that's accessible to me as of now) to train Machoke because of the Normal and Rock types. After him will come Empoleon, with the Rock types in caves and on 222, it's be good for him. Ill train Scyther on Route 217/Acuity Lakefront when I'm done with everyone else.

Thanks to the Lucky Egg and the Battleground, my Shaymin can quickly gain levels, even going through the Elite 4 helps. Now, it's at level 85! I'm amazed on how stats change each time they level. In fact, I've never been this compelled in training before in a long time. :o Ya know, after Shaymin, I'll get started on who to train. I got tons of Pokes that I need to train, some to release (extras with crappy natures, hence a bunnery with a naughty nature) and some of the personalities and hidden power tend to affect stat wise.

Go to Route 212 (the beach near Pastoria City). Surf south, then west until you find a guy named "Swimmer Sheltin". He's near a small island and he swims back and forth. He has 3 Gyarados = minimum of 6 ATK EVs per battle. If you use a power bracer, that will make it 18, and if your pokemon has Pokerus w/ the Power bracer equipped, that makes it 36.

http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/sinnoh/route213.shtml

Look near the bottom in the link above and you'll see Sheltin and his pokemon. I wish it had a picture of where he is, but it doesn't. Again, he's near a small island and he swims in a circle.

Here's some other great spots for EV training:

HP: Route 212. "Tuber Jared". You can find him running around with an inner tube on the beach. After you battle him a few times, he will eventually carry 3 Gastrodons = 2 EVs each.
ATK:Route 212. "Swimmer Shelton" *See above*
DEF:Iron Island. Graveler and Steelix. 2 EVs each
SP.ATK: Old Chateau. Gastly. 1 EV each (only 1EV, but you'll never encounter anything but Gastly)
SP.DEF: Pastoria City/Route 223. Tentacool and Tentacruel. 1 and 2 EVs each, respectively.
SPD:Victory Road. Basement floor. Surf in the water in the basement and you'll find nothing but Golbat and Floatzel, both give 2 EVs each.

Hope this helps!



Anyway,

-I've started catching some of the legendaries. I caught a max special attack modest Heatran the other day, and a Calm Regice.
-I set a new streak in the battle tower early Sunday morning, 84.
-Eventually I plan on breeding some Eevees so that I have each of the evolutions with battle worthy IVs, but I'm kinda burnt out on breeding right now. The Scizor I bred for battle tower took the wind out of me.

Restarted Pearl, as I realized that Fire Types were an important part of a team, so I might as well have picked Chimchar as a starter. I like to use Pokemon exclusive to the game's region, and with there being very few introduced in Sinnoh, I figured it was a good idea. I wasn't very far into the last file anyway.

I beat my rival east of Jubilife and am headed to the first gym. Shouldn't be too hard since I have Budew.

Current team:

I'm still EV training my Duskull here. I have about 200 more of each stat that I am working with. It'll probably take a few more days to finish. I wanna see if I can get the Effort Ribbon BEFORE he evolves.

I also helped a friend out by holding onto her 12 Pokemon for a while cause she had to restart her platinum. She plays with AR to make things interesting and she ended up glitching the game. She's gonna be more careful from now on.

Went to the underground too. Managed to find a third Zap Plate and a LOT of Thunderstones to sell. It's been an electric day.

Lastly, went to Gamestop earlier and discovered that one of my friends there is terrible at making poffins, so I made a bunch of high leveled Dry-Sweet Poffins and fed it to my spare Feebas and evolved it into Milotic for him. I'll be going back tomorrow to give it to him.

I think it's been a pretty productive day.

Well, yeah. After all the time, my streak is now complete ^_^ I have, thus far, defeated the E4 10 times, getting a lot of experience and money in the process.

I'm now on Survival Area, and intend to go explore the whole area first. This includes getting my own house, and tutoring Torterra Seed Bomb, and Gastrodon Earth Power. Afterward, I might start on hunting Feebas.

Firstly I thought whether or not I should continue running through the E4 until my team is at least L70 (in order not to be beaten to pulp by that L78 Garchomp), but now I remember that the Fight Area has an abundant amount of trainer, so what with the Vs Seeker and the Top Trainer Cafe steaming full with gymleaders and such, I guess it's easier that way ^_^

My Shaymin is now at level 100 thanks to the Lucky Egg. Also I learned that if you use one of those berries to decrease a stat, it drops by 20 to 30! And say I use protein for instance; my defense would increase depending on what I decreased. I saved before experimenting and it's quite fascinating. Perhaps I can help my Farfetch'd that I spammed rare candies with a long time ago?

Should I use some berries to change the EVs a little? Also, now I feel like training my other pokes like I should have done a long time ago. and release some unnecessary ones.

Last month, I was training a Groudon of my own, one that has:

EQ
Rest
Fire Blast
Dragon Claw

...The groudon, originally going to my sister for saboten, was a pokemon that came too little, too late to make a difference in my sister deciding that the limitations on ubers is too much for her, so she decided to not use groudon for her part of the event, so I decided to train it as my own.

Later, I made the mistake of teaching stealth rock to infernape. It was a mistake because I found out later that aerodactyl is a better stealth rock user because it is faster than all other overused pokemon that can use stealth rock. :LOL <- *at myself* *I wish there was a smilie involving laughing out loud, so I don't have to write extra characters to show how I feel about making that mistake, knowing what to do to ensure it doesn't happen again*

And lastly, today, I learned how to trade my own pokemon from diamond to my platinum using one ds, and the gts server. I deposited the forettress in my diamond version into the gts, specified the pokemon I wanted to trade from my platinum as my want(flygon), then switched to platinum, then seeked for the pokemon I deposited, then found the pokemon I deposited, and voila! I switched back to diamond after the trade sequence is over, and retrieved my flygon!

Whoa, that's cool. Perhaps I could do that to trade evolve my Pokemon? I'll test it myself. Thanks for the information too! That sounds awesome!
Edit- Wait...I only have Platinum so I guess it wouldn't work. Oh well. Perhaps I can just get my GBA games to link up each other on my Advance gameboy instead.

I'd reccomend putting a Bidoof asking for the Pokémon on your other game (give it a nickname and an item to be sure you don't trade it to someone else) and then trade for the bidoof. Much less risk.

I think I'll trade with my friends. They're much reliable.

I haven't gotten to EV training my surprise Pokemon for the epic battle. All I've been doing is battling in the Battle Hall with Garchomp trying to get to the second Brain battle. Haven't lost yet and my streak is at 140 which I got by battling one type at a time. The only types left for me are Electric, Bug, and Ghost. I'm saving the Bug and Ghost types for later because I don't want to run into a Shedinja until I teach Garchomp a move like Stone Edge. After I get my third Gold Print, I will start EV training for the battle that will happen soon.

Halfway considering trading all of my worthy Platinum Pokemon to a holder for a while so I can replay it. The only things keeping me from it are the fact I can't get another Member's Card, and I would need to trade my Rotom to SS when I get it if I wanted the forms.
