Easiest chian ever. Why can't this happen with Larvitar and Beldum <_<

Uh, to me beldums chaining aren't hard. Capturing beldum carefully is what makes them hard - also adding sandstorm which makes shiny patch difficult to see. This is just my experience as back in pearl I did everything right and wrong and got over 50 chain but couldn't find the shiny patch. Thank goodness for platinum making it easier to see. Currently own 10, yes 10 shiny beldums. Used to be 12 but traded 1 and gave 1 to a family member.

Though I do agree larvitar is a pain since its area is so dang small. Otherwise I think I can chain better. Well need to practice more.

Currently in the works of making a team to capture beldum better as my current one is good but want to better the chances - though this may waste more turns + possible beldum suiciding with take down.

Also trade a random froslass for a palkia and a zangoose for a raikou. Will probably trade those 2 in the forums for random items hopefully if I get lucky for an event berry.

Off to try to catch more shinys, probably even more shiny beldums again since people are bugging me about them - maybe after next haul I'll start trading and/or I have an ideal what I want in return.

I was really looking for a Tyrogue because I've got no luck what-so-ever when trying to chain for a specific pokemon. So, I checked the GTS, and so and be hold, I saw a lvl 5 one from Kanto holding a Master Ball. (I stupidly used mine on Shaymin, but because its IVs were great, I didn't want to take the time to SR for another.) He was asking fora Murkrow, so I gave one I had.

Now I'm currently SR for a good Nature/IV Regigigas.

Haven't really been up to too much lately. After successfully getting a Scizor to my desired level of 65, I decided to go ahead and proceed with getting myself a Gyarados. I assumed this wasn't going to be too difficult, but so far it's a little trickier than I initially thought. Doing some good work though.

I already have a movest planned, and according to a request I made for natures on a whole set of them, Adamant/Jolly is the way to go.

I tried chaining Dunsparce yesterday but the chain kept breaking. The highest chain for it was around 20. Then, I went to the Battle Tower, got a streak of 7 and then decided to search for an Iron Plate in the Underground. I found a Flame Plate could not find an Iron Plate.

Training my new Pokemon for battle is going faster than I thought. I'm getting about 2 a day, which is awesome. When I used to train them to lv.100 it would take me about 4 days just for one Pokemon.

Anyway, I finished training my new Infernape, and Empoleon. I also finished training a physical Clefable and a Machamp. Now I'm working on Pinsir, and she's almost done too. Next up I'm thinking is Lucario.

Today I played Pok&#233;mon with a friend. That means that I couldn't really train my Pok&#233;mon because most of the time, we where in the underground and such things.
Yesterday I was in the underground too, but I only found Thunderstones and Fire stones :P
I still trained my Togekiss and Torterra a little bit. Togekiss is now level 91 and Torterra too.
Currently I am training a very little bit and I'm earning some money to buy coins in Veilstone City.

Nothing particularly interesting has happened for me. Still looking for Absols.. 5% appearance rate, and some ridiculously low catch rate in Hail is not good :/. I get it down to about 25% HP, and keep throwing Dusk Balls at them while Hail chips away its health, but it doesn't wanna work. Just this one Damned creature is needed before i can progress to Spear Pillar, and the Distortion world..

I have come up with a new Battle Frontier team to try out once i get there though. Ill need to take time to breed on Diamond though, if I have the pokemon I need on there. I may not have a Porygon though.. Might have to find my Sapphire version and transfer one from there, or breed the one i have on Platinum. Anyways, the team (points for anyone who knows the connection between the nicknames, and can guess the team name from that):

I have just started breeding for my new Platinum team, consisting of Torterra, Charizard, Feraligatr, and Electivire. These four also make up my planned SoulSilver team, but there is 3 months until US release, so I'm trying them out, and if I don't like them, I'll make some changes. For the first time evern inspired by Esmerry, I started spending my money on coins in the Game Corner, and after spending $
700,000+ I got three Hidden Power TMs, a Thunderbolt TM, and a Flamethrower TM.

Man oh man, I thought my old beldum haul was great. Oh boy this is now a new record for me.

So I started out checking out which swarm for the day it would be to practice on and it turns out to be farfetch'd, I was not interested so I decided to skip out on it. Then to just see if I can complete my shiny eevee collection I decided to chain well eevee.

To my surprise, it took me one try to chain 40. I was stunned and so I did everything smoothly until the last shiny one since I forgot to put up a repel after saving. But really does it matter? After all I manage to obtain: 14 shiny eevees. Not only did I manage that but for the heck of it each one was in a different pokeball that can be found in sinnoh excluding masterball and had 2 luxury balls capture in this haul.

So yea the haul was good despite the randomness in nature since eevees have many choices and didn't care much. Though I have too many physical natures for some odd reason: jolly, adamant, lonely, etc. which can mostly be used by eevee, flareon, umbreon, and leafeon.

So now I have enough for 2 complete eevee evolutions + eevee, probably will finally get around to soft resetting shiny heatran so I can finally level up all trainers >_<...

Cool that I could inspire you :D!

Today I had a lucky day in the Game Corner. Sometimes you find coins, and I found many times 20 coins!
That's the highest amount of coins you can get by just looking.
I currently have 4010 coins. I need 10.000 coins, but I am again a little bit closer to my TM.

And I also trained a little today. Torterra is level 92, and Lapras is level 71.
Still training Togekiss. I'll train again later today.

My entire team is at Level 100! Yay!

Crobat reached Level 100 after she defeated Aaron's Heracross with Fly, and Cloyster reached Level 100 after he defeated Bertha's Rhyperior with Water Pulse. You never forget moments like that...

So now that's done, and I'm going to wait patiently until Christmas Day -- that's when I can upload my team to Battle Revolution and see all of my hard work pay off!

Until then, I'll probably catch some more Pokemon, hatch some Eggs (need at least 11 to get the Masterpiece for my Villa, and I'll have that completed), and arrange some trades through Wi-Fi or GTS. Or, better yet -- I might be able to do some battles over Wi-Fi...

Today's playtime on Platinum has been all about Pikachu. Bored with devising movesets for my main ingame team for taking on the Elite 4 second wave, I decided to try and nab a Light Ball from a Pikachu in the Trophy Garden. I decided to start a chain for this so that I had a constant stream of Pikachu encounters in a row. With my Thief Kecleon on hand, I took a number of Oran Berries and defeated a few Pikachu that held no items at all. On my 22nd encounter of the chain however, I found a Light Ball. Surprised that i'd taken my chain this far, I decided to just go for the 40 and attempt to get a shiny.

It took about an hour or so of hard work, but on my 43rd patch I managed to reset until a shiny patch materialised. After a few failed Luxury Balls, I finally managed to capture the shiny Pikachu, and was fairly happy to find that it has a Jolly nature. I'm sure i'll be able to give it a nice non-competitive use on my team and i'll even attempt to see how it fares in the Battle Frontier at least. :)

I trained my team some more, beating the trainers on Route 204, and then on Route 203, and after they reached lvl 12, I went through Oreburgh Gate, and made it to Oreburgh City. Spoke to my rival, and healed up. I then went into the Oreburgh Mine, and got Roark to head back to the Gym. Beat the trainers in Oreburgh Mine, healed, and challenged Roark with Totodile. I swept him easily with Waterfall. Afterwards I healed, and saved.

After realizing that Dusknoir can't learn Pain Split, I traded mine to my friend and had him use the HGSS move tutor to teach it. And I also had him trade me an egg of an Aron with Head Smash. It was surprisingly shiny with a Lonely nature, like my last Aron, but better IVs.

After beating Roark and the TG Grunts in Jubilife City, I went north towards Floaroma Town, and got there very quickly. Beat all the trainers along the way, and Charmander evolved outside in the double battle with the Pachirisu's. Healed up, and went to the Valley Windworks. Elekid beat Commander Mars and her annoyingly underleveled Purugly somehow, and afterwards I headed for the Floaroma Meadow. Turtwig beat both Grunts, and evolved afterwards. I healed up, and beat all the trainers along the route up to Eterna Forest, and Totodile evolved. Made it through Eterna Forest in a snap, beat all the Bug lovers in there too, and made it to Eterna City. Healed up, beat the Fishermen and the trainers near Mt. Coronet, and prepared for my Gym battle. Elekid and Grotle beat all the Gym trainers, and I challenged Gardenia with Charmeleon. It was as easy as sunday morning, as they were all OHKO'd by Flamethrower. Healed after it, and currently headed down Cycling Road.

Started training my new Shiny Pikachu (not EV training though), who I decided to nickname "Sparky" after my Pikachu from FireRed - I suspect it's more fitting for a Pikachu that glitters everytime it's released from its Luxury Ball xD. I attached the Light Ball to him and taught him Iron Tail to allow for more diversity in battle. Although i'll let him learn Thunderbolt, I could probably do with letting the Move Tutor teach him ThunderPunch due to him being a Jolly nature which isn't beneficial to Special Attack.

I trained my EVd Jolly Lucario at bit more at the Battleground, and beat Maylene, Crasher Wake, Mira, and Roark. I also out of boredom caught every Unown, was really easy actually, took about an hour. Went through the new tunnel, and got the other two Unown and the free Rare Candy. Did the other daily events, got my free Heart Scales and Shards.

After I beat Gardenia, I healed up, and headed for the Team Galactic Eterna Building, beating all the Grunts and made it to Jupiter. Croconaw made quick work of her and her annoying Skuntank. Afterwards, I got the Bicycle and the Togepi egg, and hatched it after a while. Dumped it in the PC, and hit Cycling Road. I beat all those trainers, made a pitstop in Oreburgh, and went to Mt. Coronet. Bumped into Dawn, got the stuff from her, and talked to Cyrus, and made it to Hearthome, beating all the trainers along the way. I healed up, beat the Gym trainers with Charmeleon and Croconaw, and challenged Fantina. She was a challenge for once, as Elekid got KO'd by a critical hit Shadow Claw from Haunter. Grotle finished it off, and 2HKO'd Mismagius with Bite. Healed afterwards, and saved.

- Tried to chain Poochyena. Got a chain of 7, but when I defeated the seventh Poochyena, only one rare patch showed up where the grass ended, so my chain broke :(
- Also tried to find a Absol, but I couldn't find one. I'll search again today.
- Also trained my Pok&#233;mon a little bit.
Torterra and Togekiss are level 93, and Lapras is level 72.
- Entered my Eevee (Which will be a Vaporeon soon) in the cute contest and she got first :D

It was a much different experience, as I slapped on some Choice Specs and OKHO'd everything up to Battle Hall Matron Argenta. Her choice of pokemon was quite a bad one, a Salamence. I outsped it and OHKOd with Ice Beam.

I''m very happy at the moment right now!

I was on the GTS and a decided to check if there were any male Skitty's up for trade. Completely by accident, I didn't change the gender, but instead changed the level to 1-10. I was going through the 7 people that were up and a noticed one was holding a Custap Berry! She wanted a Heracross, but I didn't have any. :(
I quickly checked what Hereacross were going for, and saw someone wanting a Solrock, so I traded it for the Heracross. When I went to check back on the Skitty with the Custap Berry, the person changed their mind and wanted a Shuppet instead. I recently released all the Shuppet I had because I didn't want them anymore. I quickly decided to throw the Heracross on the GTS for a Shuppet. 4 Hours later, and I recieved a Shuppet. I was hoping the Skitty wasn't gone. I searched, and it was still there, so now I'm the proud owner of the infamous Custap Berry. :) Yay!

Wasn't that a story? Other than that, I've been breeding some more Eevees, and digging up more fossils.

I've been playing through my Diamond a lot lately... currently, I'm working towards getting my team

Infernape, lvl 79
Torterra, lvl 80
Gastrodon, lvl 79
Togekiss, lvl 76
Lucario, lvl 78

up to Level 100. For my sixth slot, I've been using random Pokemon at level 100. Recently, it was Bastiodon, but before that, it was Glalie (which, due to it's stats, I may stick with--it may as well be at the same level as the rest of my team), and I also tried Porygon-Z. I'm thinking about trying for a Drapion, though that may not happen.

I'm trying to stay away from the likes of Arcanine, Gliscor, Feraligatr, Donphan, etc. because I want to use those in HGSS.

I just can't decide. ;_;

I fought through the Elite Four recently. I think I may end up trying to sweep the entire Elite Four with as few Pokemon as possible (as I almost did with Togekiss, sans most of the battle against Lucian). That brought my Togekiss up six levels in one league challenge.

I think I'll repeat with Torterra and/or Lucario.

Also on pearl: Raising happiness on a Togepi to evolve into Togetic and just hatched a male Machop with Ice punch, just going to raise it properly go though the E4 until it learns Cross chop ready to breed with a female Electabuzz. Then i'm going to teach Togetic just wish and Baton pass to pass to a female bold vaporeon to get a bold, wish BP Eevee for Diamond and a Mild/Rash Ice punch/Cross chop Elekid i'm hoping to get them by new years.

Diamond: I've got half my team now on the game, just about to go and train up my Spiritomb which i've called TOMBSTONE which suits it just fine actually so i'm hoping that gets to level 10 soon, i've also beat my rival using Trapinch.

After I healed up in Solaceon Town, I beat all the trainers along the way towards Veilstone City. My team was lvl 30 by the time I made it there, and after I beat the trainers and healed, I challenged Maylene. Was a bit of a challenge with Drain Punch, but Grotle managed to take down both Meditite and Machoke, and Electabuzz took down Lucario (got lucky after it got paralyzed by Static). I healed afterwards, and helped Dawn get her Pokedex back.

Charmeleon lvl 30
Croconaw lvl 30
Grotle lvl 30
Electabuzz lvl 30

On my main Platinum, I began to train my EVd Dragonite up to lvl 100, currently at lvl 80. I've been beating the trainers at the Battleground everyday for the last week. I also talked to the Shard Guy in the Great Marsh, talked to the Pokemon Reporter, who was asking for Mesprit, and won an Exp. Share at the Jubilife Lottery.

For something to do during the break, I also slathered up 18 trees with honey two hours ago, as I have caught every pokemon other than Munchlax from a Honey Tree. Hopefully it will show up quickly.

EDIT: Seems there has been a bit of a slow day for this thread, as there hasn't been a new post for 3 days...

I've done all the Honey Trees about 3-4 times each, mainly finding Combee and Burmy (even moreso than Wurmple, which I thought was odd), an occasional Aipom, and only one Heracross, so I have seen every Honey Tree pokemon except that darn Munchlax >.<

My EVd Dragonite has been leveling up nicely, its currently lvl 88. I want it to face the E4, but I'm to impatient, as I'd want to quit half way through xP

I finally went after the Oak Letter Shaymin, after downloading the letter months ago, and on the third try got a Timid Shaymin with similar stats to my other Timid Shaymin.

I've been pretty bored lately, as other than the Honey Tree quest and doing the daily events, I've ran out of things to do. I might even take a break from the Battle Frontier for a tad, maybe focus on some random breeding projects I may feel the need to pursue, but other than that, I would like people to PM me with something else to do on my main Platinum, but be aware I have all 493 pokemon, all the Unown, and all Silver Prints at the Battle Frontier. I'm currently stuck on the Master Rank Beauty Contest with my Ninetales, and I'll try to beat that soon.

On my second Platinum on the other hand, I've been sort of neglecting recently in favor of my main Platinum file.

After I beat Maylene, I healed, and beat all the trainers on the route between Veilstone and Pastoria. Made it to Pastoria very quickly, healed up, and beat my rival with only Electabuzz, who also beat everyone else in the Gym. Afterwards, I beat all the trainers on Route 212, and challenged Wake, who was a joke of a challenge thanks to Electabuzz OHKOing both Gyarados and Floatzel, while Torterra OHKO'd Quagsire. Afterwards, I healed up, and trained Charmeleon and Croconaw to lvl 36, just to evolve them, and saved.

I'll also train up Togetic for Wish and BP soon as well.

Started my EV training for my upcoming team. I bred my Vespiquen to get both male and female Combee. It took me sometime, but got it! Then, I went to Pastoria City and showed these two to bug catcher who gave me a Macho Brace. I gave it to my Adamant Technician Scizor and trained him hard. I will complete training him tomorrow to start with the other one.

I tried a little battle hall today with gengar, I was doing well, but suddenly I lost, I didn't even know what happened, as I was reading this forum at the same time. Then I decided to try catching Palkia. I spent an hour chaining Ralts to get the right syncher. Then I started SR'ing. No luck yet. Have caught about 30-50 Palkias now.

Restarted, having just completed Emerald and having no other game to Pal Park with (Japanese HG and Platinum are my only DS titles atm).

Chose Chimichar, I usually ALWAYS chose PIPLUP and Dawn, but changed my mind and went Chimchar/Male. Before I reached the second gym Monferno was Lv.32, 33 after the gym. After that solo mess, I grabbed an Eevee, then went to that cave place to catch Gible (Dragon Rage is a Pain), settled on a Gentle one because Monferno is KO'd atm. Saved there, need to get EQ then head to the double battle thingy to train gible and eevee to 30 a piece.

I got a Platinum version for Xmas! I started Platinum version today and HOLY **** this game is so effing hard! I had times where I almost threw my DS out the window.

Roark- I hated him.
Gardenia- Even though I had Monferno, she was a pain in the ***
Fantina- She wasnt that bad.
Maylene- OMFGWTF?!?!?!?! I want to murder that damned Lucario.

Not a good game so far... I hate this game.

Not to mention the trainers on the routes are hard. The 2 Ace trainers just before Veilstone had me stuck for like an hour.

My team: (Nicknames in parenthesis)
Monferno (Dark) Lv32
Budew (*****) Lv10 (HM Slave)
Eevee (Voltron) Lv21
Machop (Machop) Lv21
Togepi (Dumb****) Lv10 (IDK why I have this lol)
Silcoon (Useless) Lv10 (IDK why I have this either too lazy to get other Pokemon)

Just before entering the Pastoria gym, my rival stopped me for the 25126532512nd time and he had a level 34 Staravia, so I passed and turned my game off...

Nothing really new on my Platinum, just doing daily events, and slathering up Honey Trees. My EVd Dragonite is lvl 95, should be lvl 100 by tomorrow, and then I'll begin training either my EVd Metagross or EVd Infernape.

On my other Platinum, after I beat Crasher Wake, and beat the TG Grunt, I flew to Solaceon, and headed for Celestic Town. Beat all the trainers along the way, and eventually made it to Celestic Town. Talked to Cynthia's Grandma, and beat the TG Grunt and Cyrus easily. Afterwards I healed, and beat the trainers near Mt. Coronet. Flew to Jubilife City, and surfed to Canalave City, with Electabuzz beating the fisherman, and evolved it in Canalave City. Beat all the trainers, and Feraligatr soloed my rival. I healed, beat the trainers in the Gym, and challenged Byron. Feraligatr managed to survive Magneton's Thunderbolt, and swept with Dragon Dance boosted Waterfall. Afterwards I talked to my Rival, healed, and talked to Prof. Rowan in the Library.

ok so I was chaining lots of dittos and got a decent chain going but none except my last were close to 40 - was chaining to get a good iv one for later and to see if I can get a shiny.

So luckily I got 3 that has at least one 31 iv and have awesome overall stats:
Mild: 29/17/25-26/5/24/31
Impish: 17/31/5/29-30/30/28
Adamant: 8/23/29/29-30/31/31

*from HP iv to speed iv. also not for trade

How awesome is that, almost 4 31 ivs, but two 31 and two near perfect is satisfying.

edit: had to change two words since it was somehow censored, didn't think those two words would be that bad and wouldn't consider them curse words.

Then later someone needed some dittos so I traded 3 to get all pinch berries + drain punch which was kind of him. Though when trading, nintendo server and/or wifi was being so mean so it took anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour +; may be exaggerating, but it was frustrating.

Worst off, that almost cost me a berry as one disconnection error cause my stupid bibarel to be cloned!!! Luckily he had more, but if that wasn't the case...I would've been more angry.

I hate you bibarel for almost costing me a berry and just for cloning yourself for no reason >_<!!!

Bought Platinum with my Christmas money, plugged it into my brand new DSi, and began my Sinnoh journey all over again!

This time, I'm playing as the girl (I'm playing Diamond as the boy, so I figured "Why not?"). Named her Hikari, named my rival Jun, and once again dedicated myself to nicknaming all my Pokémon with their Japanese names. Started with Piplup (Pochama). First capture was a Starly (Mukkuru), but unlike in Diamond, I don't plan to keep it on my team for the long run. Instead, I want to train up the Zubat (...uh, Zubat) that I caught on Route 204 and use it as my Flying type. I always wanted to train a Poison Pokémon.

Currently outside Oreburgh City, leveling up Piplup and Budew (Subomi) to take on Roark. I caught a Psyduck (Koduck) in the Oreburgh Gate, and I may keep it in the wings as a backup for the gym battle ahead.

During the past week, I've been catching some new Pokemon in Platinum...

I inserted my Ruby cartridge and caught Regice, Regirock, Registeel, Jirachi (WISHMKR), Latios and my Level 68 Gorebyss in Pal Park. I also went to Iron Island and captured an adamant female Mawile (and it didn't take too long for me to find her). I might train her for another team in the future. With Gorebyss; I'll eventually start breeding for Clamperl, and make plans to raise a new Gorebyss for a future team.

Then I used my Sapphire cartridge to capture a female Sableye (which took a handful of Ultra Balls to catch) and a female Lotad. I bred the Lotad with a male Shellos, and the male offspring was born knowing Water Pulse and Rain Dance. Thanks to the Exp. Share, he is now a Level 16 Ludicolo...

I've also been using the Exp. Share to train a Gallade with Hypnosis, Mean Look and False Swipe. He was a big help in weakening Regigigas... but I couldn't get it in an Ultra Ball, even when he was asleep. I managed to get it in a Timer Ball, which surprised me because I couldn't even catch Uxie or Azelf with one, and I thought they were useless. Then again, I remember catching one of the Regi trio with a Timer Ball (forgot which one)...

And on Wednesday; it took multiple attempts -- but I eventually caught Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres in Quick Balls without having to weaken them. I was so happy... I also got an Articuno (for a Heracross) and a Moltres (for a Yanmega) before then via GTS, just in case.

I'm really liking Platinum so far! Roark was a bigger challenge than I thought he'd be - Cranidos took out Budew and Piplup with one Headbutt. Fortunately, when it hit Budew, it got Poisoned, so that certainly helped. Psyduck ended up carrying the battle to the end with Water Gun.

Now I'm outside the Valley Windworks, preparing to rescue the worker inside from Team Galactic. But I need something to defeat Mars' Zubat and Purugly with ease, so I'm leveling up my newly caught Pachirisu and Machop. Once they learn Spark and Karate Chop, respectively, I should have this one in the bag.

US Platinum: Alright, it's been a while since I posted here so I might be repeating and/or missing stuff. Anyway...

I renamed my Swellow and Staraptor (I had to trade 'em back to Pearl, though), EV'd an Aerodactyl, a Torkoal and a Dialga. Aerodactyl reached Level 100, Torkoal is Level 86, and Dialga is Level 77. Traded a bunch of Pokémon over from Pearl (IIRC, they were Mareep, Relicanth, Turtwig, and a few others I can't remember ATM).

IDK who I want to raise after Torkoal reaches Level 100, yet. Oh yeah, Dialga isn't traded so he's going to take longer to level up than everyone else.

Picked up my game since Im home for the holidays. I decided to train a second pokemon, alongside my Flygon, to lv. 100.
I spent all of yesterday breeding Eevee. And after hatching quite a few, I got a Timid female with great IVs 28/x/30-31/20/30-31. I was hoping for better special defense but oh well. I named her Jubilee and she's currently level 42. (day care took care of half of those levels/Ev trained her to the rest) She's an Espeon now, should mention that.

Woke up early and couldn't go back to sleep, so I decided to play for a little bit. According to my journal, I hadn't played since October 15!

I went through Mount Coronet, Spear Pillar, and saved right before battling Cyrus in the Distortion World. I saved in front of him and tried to beat him, but my Pokemon were underlevelled and he beat me with his Houndoom. ):

Been hunting shinies lately. A shiny Bagon does not want to appear to me despite having a chain of 40 multiple times. 3 shiny poochyena made me feel better. I also caught a shiny Natu on link 6 of my chain. I was rubbing my eyes since I thought I was seeing things when the patch sparkled like that.

Yesterday I was determined to catch myself a Regigigas with decent IV's and nature to for me to use on a team for PBR. I realized I didn't have an Adamant synchronizer, so a grabbed a Eevee and drugged him up, then used EV berries to make him more happy. HE evolved into Espeon, and I headed back to the Snowpoint temple. After about 2 hours of SR, I found a desirable Regigigas. Went to the man in the Battle tower, and he said it was SPECTACULAR, so I saved, and transferred it over to PBR so I could calc its IVs. This is him below:

Regigigas - #486 (Adamant): 31 / 18 - 19 / 30 / 24 / 26 / 23 (HP Poison)

Attack is eh, okay. But it won't matter once I EV train him. Now I'm on the search for a Budew with Leaf Storm and Extrasensory.

So anyway, I chose the girl character and named her Sandi. Chose Piplup as my starter and had to reset a bunch of times until I was able to beat my rival (Withdraw is a pain) and get a good nature for the starter. Just finished catching a Starly and Kricketot; I might train the former. I'm heading on to Jubilife at the moment, whee. :3

After beating the Stark Mountain plot, been on a capturing spree in Platinum. PokeRadar'ed a Phanpy, got Mr. Backlot to release a Happiny into the garden, caught a Magcargo, Weezing, and Skarmory(<3), and evolved my Sneasel into a Weavile. Trying to remember where I can buy Quick and Dusk Balls, since I'm running low.

Today was interesting I guess. I've ben search the GTS for an Event Regigigas for awhile. However, all offers have been outrageous.

I was going to try an clone my Shaymin via the GTS method, and just to be safe, I put her up for a lvl 100 Regigigas. Unfortunately, I didn't know you couldn't clone using platinum, so I lost Shaymin. BUT I did get a Movie08 Gigas for it. I'm going to try an catch the Regis now.

I challenged the Battle Factory and chose the Open Level Mode. I managed to get the chance to battle Thorton. I cannot remember what Pokemon was used by Thorton and me in the first time I faced him, but I do remember that he used Heatran.

After the loss, I rechallenged the Factory, and I got the chance to face Thorton again. This time, I used Gardevoir, Gyarados and Heracross.

Gardevoir VS Golduck: Thorton sent out Golduck, while I sent out Gardevoir. Golduck missed her Hydro Pump.

Gardevoir used Energy Ball and it reduced 70% of the Golduck's HP. Golduck used Hydro Pump again, and this time it hit my Gardevoir. Gardevoir's lost 55% of his HP. Gardevoir's Charge Beam missed. Golduck used Signal Beam and it knocked Gardevoir out.

Gyarados VS Golduck: after my Gardevoir fainted, I sent out Gyarados. Golduck used Ice Beam and it only decreased 30% of Gyarados HP. Gyarados used Stone Edge and it hit Golduck. Finally, Golduck fainted.

Gyarados VS Lanturn: Thorton sent out Lanturn. Gyarados' Outrage cut 60% of Lanturn's HP. Lanturn used Thunderbolt. As a result, Gyarados was knocked out.

Heracross VS Lanturn: I sent out Heracross - the last Pokemon in my Battle Factory party this time. Thankfully, the Heracross had Earthquake. Heracross' Earthquake knocked Lanturn out.

Heracross VS Ampharos: Thorton sent out his last Pokemon - Ampharos. My Heracross's Earthquake reduced 90%

of Ampharos' HP. Ampharos' Thunder decreased 90% of Heracross' HP too. Heracross' Salac Berry was activated. Heracross used Earthquake again. Eventually, Ampharos was knocked out.

As I finally managed to defeat Thorton, I was awarded the Silver Factory Print. I recorded the battle in my VS Recorder too.

Last night, I challenged the Elite Four a number of times, and after getting experience from my rival, I worked my entire core team up to level 99. Three of them reached 100 by the battle with Cynthia--the last two reached 100 during the fight.

This is my team, which I have raised from low levels, some through the entire game, to Level 100!

;002;SAUR, my male Ivysaur. Trained from a Bulbasaur post-Elite Four, then boxed away. (ROSE's original replacement.)
;464;RHYPERIOR, male. Trained post-Elite Four, then eventually boxed away. (DRAKE's original replacement.)
;248;TYRANITAR, female. Trained post-Elite Four, then eventually boxed away. (RHYPERIOR's original replacement.)
;362;GLALIE, male. The sixth member of my main team post-Elite Four. Obtained at Level 100, so it was essentially a back-up Pokemon, much like Bastiodon was.
;411;BASTIODON, male. Used in many battles post-Elite Four. Also served as a sort of back-up Pokemon, as it was obtained at level 100 and has high defense.
;219;MAGCARGO, male. Used an uncountable number of times to hatch eggs.

I think, soon, I'll form a brand-new team. Perhaps I'll bring back the old members of the team (DRAKE, ROSE, KROW, RHYPERIOR) and train them to level 100.

well for the most part today I was just evolving pokemon to fill up the pokedex like mismagius, honchkrow, bastidoon, etc.

Yesterday I managed to chain 4 shiny magnemites though could've gotten more if it weren't for me growing berries. All bad stats, with 3 of 4 hp electric...might trade them away for the most part.

Though a while ago, I was chaining dittos for close to flawless as possible. Long story short (see shiny discussion for full story), I ended up with only 1 shiny ditto but close to flawless as possible with 4 31ivs - see sig for full details.

So only really my shiny dittos is the best thing that happen in a while in pokemon - though trouble thinking of an ev set to mess around with battling.

Okay well this was a few days ago on my Platinum when I finally beat it! Had it since my birthday. On the Champion Cynthia. I was having a tough time to beat her. It took several hits to beat her pokemon except one took two I think. I finally beat her with one pokemon left from my party. All others fainted. The last pokemon I beat was her Milotic with my Luxray. I had to use many Hyper Potions as well. I thought it was a great battle!

Yesterday, I finally completed the National Dex on my Platinum, which is the first time that I have completed it in the fourth Generation. I now have the silver Trainer Card (Three-star).

My next goal is to get the rest of the Battle Frontier prints (I have the silver for the Arcade and Castle already) and/or try to get my fourth Trainer Card star by winning a Master Rank Contest.

Today I won my first commemorative print in Platinum and the third award in the Battle Frontier. (Silver Luck symbol and silver arcade print in previous Platinum file.)

I WON THE SILVER FACTORY PRINT!!!!!11 (lol)

I was given a hint as to what my opponent would have and a chose accordingly, a Shelgon, Slaking and some other random.I carried on in the challenges, Shelgon proving to be a very competent battler with its Dragon Dance.

And then I reached my seventh battle when Thorton demanded a battle. My team going in there was Shelgon, Venemoth and Magneton. The battle started. Shelgon used Dragon Dance and Hypno used trick room, now because of the twisted dimensions Hypno went first flinging its iron ball at me. It didn't do very much and Shelgon OHKO'ed it with crunch.

Then Togekiss was sent out. With the speed boost Shelgon went first and knocked Togekiss down to less than half health with dragon claw. Then Togekiss went to charge a sky attack but because of its red herb attacked straight away. It would have knocked Shelgon out but it held on with its item that prevents OHKO'ing. I thought Togekiss was down for the count but it used extremespeed knocking Shelgon out. I then sent out my Magneton which took it down with a shock wave.

Thorton's final Pokemon was sent out, an intimidating Drapion. Magneton started it out with thunderwave but its lum berry cured it. Drapion attacked with an aqua tail leaving Magneton with just a little more than half health. Magneton attakced with shock wave leaving Drapion with extremely close to half health. Drapion attacked with aqua tail again leaving Magneton with just 10 HP. O.O I knew that I couldn't beat that Drapion with one more shock wave and I would need a critical hit to beat, and then what do you know, Magneton's berry kicked in raising its special attack, just enough for Magneton to bring that Drapion down.

Thorton wasn't very happy but couldn't give a continental, I won the Silver Factory Print.

I got my first flawless breed! It's a shiny Bagon, mild nature (mixed sweeper), 31/31/31/31/31/31. I also got myself an awesome Jolteon, with HP Ice 70 and maximum IVs for such an attack (31/30/30/31/31/31). Currently working on a Tyranitar and then possibly a Heatran, as well as EVing and levelling them all. I'm on a roll!

I've made a lot of progress in Platinum since I last posted here. Saved the Valley Windworks, helped Cheryl through Eterna Forest, beat Gardenia, and threw Team Galactic out of Eterna City. But I struggled a bit in the fight with Gardenia, which led me to stop and think up some new strategy. My Pok&#233;mon had the type advantage, but they weren't very powerful. So I'm now trying to exploit every opportunity I can to get strong Pok&#233;mon as soon as possible.

Right now, I'm training for the bout with Fantina. And since I kept my Zubat on my team ever since I caught it, it's now a level 23 Crobat that knows Bite. That should definitely come in handy. Also, I'm training a level 18 Gastly right now; once it evolves into Haunter, I'll immediately trade it back and forth from Diamond to get me a Gengar. That'll give me two fully-evolved Pok&#233;mon with the upper hand against Fantina's team. (I may also take some time in Diamond to breed a Murkrow and a Misdreavus and then trade them over to Platinum too, so I'll have even more backup on hand.)

In the space of less than 24 hours I got no less than TWO prints from the Battle Frontier and caught a legendary.

Today I swept right through the Battle Arcade and beat Dahlia on my first try.

Then I proceeded to go through two rounds of the Battle Hall with my Staraptor then vs. the Hall Matron Argenta and beat her Purugly. After my third go against her I finally defeated her, I was so happy.

After my stupendous effort in the Battle Frontier I went to smother honey over all the sweet honey trees I could find. Then just north of Solaceon Town I saw that a legendary was on the route I was so went in for the hell of it. Turns out it was the Moltres that has been staying out of my damned Dark Balls for so long. Since it wasn't night time I just threw out an Ultra Ball and ended up catching it.

Other than that I just added quite a few pages to my Sinnoh PokeDex in the hopes of eventually completing that before I move onto the National PokeDex.

Just finished breeding my Ampharos, its IVs ended up being 31/30/31/31/29/10. I've EV trained it and I'm now using him in the Battle Frontier. He's doing really well.

Now I'm thinking about what new pokemon to breed. My brother surprised me and said he wanted to help med out so he's gonna breed a Slaking for me in diamond while I breed something else in platinum. Hmm.. what should I breed..

I also EV trained some new Pokemon, but that isn't as important. I also noticed that the score on my Trainer Card is 49300. Kind of interesting.

After many tries in the Battle Hall, I have finally got the Gold Print. All thanks to my recently EV Trained Level 50 Garchomp.

The set:

Garchomp @ Yache Berry
Hasty Nature
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Sp. Atk / 252 Spe
~ Fire Blast
~ Stone Edge
~ Earthquake
~ Outrage

I tried the Choice Band set first but Ice moves proved to be problematic for Garchomp. With a Yache Berry, OHKOs from Ice Beams from the likes of Slowbro became 2HKOs instead while I was able to 2HKO it with Outrage. Anyway, I started by getting the 2 types that posed the biggest threat to Garchomp. Ice and Dark. Those 2 being threats because those are the Types Weavile is and Weavile is Garchomp's biggest threat in the Battle Hall. Fortuneatly I didn't encounter one. After that, I proceeded to eliminate the Water, Psychic and Ghost Types since there are still some threats to Garchomp in there. After the Ice, Dark, Dragon, Water and Psychic types were out of the way, I battled the Hall Matron who used a Rhypherior. It was easily 3HKOed by Earthquake (it survived the first 2 with barely any HP left and a Choice Banded one would've easily 2HKOed) while it did pathetic damage in return with Earth Power (lol). After that I proceeded to get through type-by-type. I had a few close calls against Steelix who barely survived Fire Blast, Cursed, got Quick Claw hax and hit me with a Gyro Ball which Garchomp barely survived and finished Steelix off with Earthquake (didn't want to take a chance with Fire Blast missing). Another 2 were against Tauros and Kangaskhan who hit Garchomp with Outrages after they survived the ones from Garchomp. To my surprise, Garchomp survived them and was able to finish them off with subsequent Outrages. Despite that, I was able to get to the Hall Matron again. I can't quite remember what she used but whatever it was, it was 2HKOed by Outrage.

That will be my second time migrating from a GBA game and hopefully my last since I don't want to rely on it. I also plan to breed a few shiny Pokemon via RNG.

I haven't really touched upon Platinum since starting Explorers of Sky proper. I'm not a competitive battler, nor am I obsessed with completing the National Dex. I just check the daily swarm for anything I might want.

Yesterday, I started LeafGreen and SR'd for a female Charmander to transfer to Platinum, evolve, and eventually, breed for a Charmander for my HeartGold team (Charizard's still in the Johto Dex, so I can make an allowance for it). I named her Benika (Crimson Fire). Unfortunately, I must've screwed around with my DS Lite's clock, so I couldn't migrate her and the other junk Pokemon right away, which strikes me as odd, since LeafGreen, to my knowledge, doesn't have a clock.

Nonetheless, my plan is to evolve my Groban (my Swablu) into an Altaria, teach it Dragon Pulse, breed him with the fully evolved Benika, and wham, bam, thank you ma'am, I have a Charmander with Dragon Pulse for my HeartGold team. And Benika has a Timid nature, so I may EV train her in Special Attack and Speed (though for the former, I'll have to find something other than Tentacool).

Only problem with that is Charmander cannot learn TM Dragon Pulse.

Also, Tentacool doesn't give Special Attack EVs, it gives Special Defense EVs.

@ Darth Osiris: The Old Chateau is a good place to train if you need Special Attack EVs.

Anyhow...

US Platinum: I decided to EV-train/level up an Anorith and a Charmander. They're currently a Level 60 Armaldo, and a Level 53 Charizard. I also leveled Dialga up a little, too.

I really need to play more if I want to have my Pok&#233;mon EV'd and at Level 100 before HG/SS's release. Or I could just EV train them and put them pack in the PC, though I don't really want to do that since IJBM if they're EV'd, but not Level 100*.

*It feels like I've left it (the Pok&#233;mon) "half-finished", so yeah [/rambling]

In my Platinum yesterday i checked my swarm and it was the infuriating Beldum! Now it is infuriating to me as i have on hundreds of occasions tried to chain the little $&#37;*! for a lovely shiny. I am at the moment trying to compile a shiny team with decent stats.

So far i have: Lopunny, Umbreon, Charizard, Pinsir, Ampharos and Gallade (<_<) all level 100

I'm hoping to replace the Gallade as i only have it for type balancing So i have a Slowbro ready to be leveled up and put in. The Pinsir will be replaced with my Tyranitar.

My main targets to be put in are Metagross and Dragonite So i can have Charizard, Umbreon, Tyranitar, Metagross, Dragonite and Ampharos/Lopunny (Good typing or my first ever shiny?)

So anyway Beldum! Off i go to try a chain... it goes well! I'm being really careful and on the 38th chain i get my prize!! AND the syncroniser worked! Adamant! I had to use my Master ball as i was scared it would do what my last shiny beldum did... use struggle and die. SO this is my only chance as i only have one Masterball

The ironic thing is it's Mischievous and i check and what do ya know it has a 31 iv in SpAtk! lol. However i check the rest of it's ivs and i am most pleased!

HP: 11 <---- Meh could be better, could be worse.
Atk: 28 <---- Almost perfect! infact for what it is and how i caught it it IS perfect!
Def: 28 <---- Again fantastic both stats i want to ev train it in are high!
SpAtk: 31 <---- The one stat i really don't care about and look at it... sigh.
SpDef: 4 <---- Well it isn't Metagross's best stat anyway...
Spd: 18 <---- Not too bothered either.

Also another thing i did was check the GTS and looked for a Clefairy, in hopes that a shiny one would appear. One did but the person was wanting a lv 50 and above Munchlax! Who on earth keeps level 50 and above Munchlaxs!? So while i chain for Beldum i'm also exp. Sharing a lv 1 newly hatched Munchlax to see if i can do it in time. After i catch my Beldum and level it up to 50 i go and look for the Clefairy...


IT'S THERE!!! I trade and for a wee while i had a very legit looking shiny Clefairy!

Now i "had" it because my fiance has not a single shiny and he won't take one with my id however i ask him if he'd take one off the GTS and he said yes so i decided to give him it. Clefairy is one of his favourites so i feel thrilled i could give him a shiny one.

Ahh i cannot beleive how lucky i got with that Beldum. First i get a 30 attack iv shiny Larvitar and now my shiny Beldum has 28 ivs in both Attack and Defence! Well lucky considering i really did only have one chance to catch it and to catch just one.

Anyways, I was fighting around Route 201 to EV train my RNGd Milotic in HP and as soon as I finished, I head to Route 202 on my way to Jubilife City, when I encountered a Shiny Shinx. Bit of irony there as that was the first shiny I wanted in Pearl, but failed at chaining. I now have four random encountered shinies.

Unless you were using a ghost type, when would Shadow Ball be stronger than Thunderbolt?

Well, I've had my Pearl Version for about two weeks already -- and while Sinnoh isn't my favorite region, I really love the Pokemon I have so far. :) I've got a lot of them -- almost all of them being Wi-Fi trades, but of those trades, all of them were eggs, so I got to be their very first trainer. :D

So for now I'm training each of them (I have 30 atm) to the same level (except my starter, who I often have leveled higher) before tackling the Pokemon Gym Challenge.

He leads with Milotic

Milotic used Hydro Pump
It's attack missed :D

Haunter used TBolt and got around half damage. Next turn Milotic kills so I go into Staraptor....

Hydro Pump misses again and then Brave Bird crits the Milotic :P!

he sends in Dragonite and finishes me off with a Stone Edge but not before I get half damage with Brave Bird.

Decided to go back to playing after a nearly 2 month hiatus... which is strange even for me.

Currently training an Adamant Gyarados, whom I've gotten to about level 44. Training for attack EVs East of Celestic. Not entirely sure if I'm doing it right, but I think I've gotten the technique at least. I'm not going to bother with IVs since, a) I don't have the patience or the time, b) I'm not into extreme competitive battling, but I also do prefer at least having something that can stand it's own ground in battle.

Afterwards, I'm thinking of getting my Latios from Diamond (which I transferred from Emerald) and maybe putting Latias in my party as well and completing that Stark Mountain section of the game (yes, I've had Platinum for almost a year now, and I still haven't gotten there).

As my Pokedex is being completed, I'll mostly be posting about its progress. Just because I feel like it, I'll make a list of some noteworthy things I've done.

-I've caught all my Pokemon (besides Legends) in Pokeballs
-The VS. Seeker hasn't been used yet and I don't think it's happening
-None of my Pokemon (besides ingame team and EV trained ones) have any experience and are untouched
-I haven't taken my Ditto out of the Day-Care since I put it in and it's at level 98
-I've only migrated twice since I don't want to rely on it to complete the Pokedex


There you go. A boring list for people to read.

Here's what has been going on in my Pearl and Platinum games. Platinum first, it's short XD

- I finally got a Lopunny off off GTS, making me one step closer to owning every single Pokemon in existence! MUAHAHA
- Have been training my current team of Pokes at the Battlefield, here is my current progress:

Moltres Lv 82
Darkrai Lv 80
Ampharos (From Colloseum ^_^) Lv 94
Dialga Lv 86
Blastoise Lv 91
Palkia Lv 72 (Been kinda neglecting him, I will be training him when Dialga's done =P)

And here is what I've been doing in Pearl:

- Been stuck for a while in Pearl because I needed to train for the Elite Four, and I was short two Pokemon. I didn't feel like bringing along two HM slaves with me, so I looked over the info of the Elite Four, and figured I needed a Grass type for Bertha and Fire for Arron, so I traded over a Victreebell and Heatran from my Platinum game. Heatran was ready to go, at Lv 68, but Victreebell, at 47, needed some training, as I wanted my team to be no less than Lv 60 while battling the Elite.

- I started to train Victreebell by going to a water route where there were nothing but Tentacruel. =P That didn't work out so well, so I traded Victreebell back to Platinum so I could go into the secret passageway in Victory Road that leads to route 224, where there is a much more variety of water types. Got it up to Lv 65, and went to take on the Elite Four. Even though my Emploeon and Scizor were both at lv 60, they were only going to be used for the weaker Pokemon, as to not get slaughtered by the strong ones. And I successfully beat the Elite. FINALLY. *faints from exhaustion*

- I needed to see all the Sinnoh Pokemon for me to get the National Dex. I had the Pokemon I needed in Platinum, so I traded them to Pearl, traded them back, until i saw all 151 Pokemon in Pearl.

Now, on to explore Routes 225, 226, 228, 229 and 230 =D

I beat the 3rd frontier brain on Platinum, Dahlia, on my 1st attempt (facing her, not going through the actual Arcade). I strated her Pokemon off with about 7/8HP, and she sent out Medicham against my Torterra. I quickly switched out for Staraptor, who witheld a weak Fake Out. I took out Medicham with one Brave Bird, and the same with Ludicolo (but with 1 Fly). Finally, she sent out Dusknoir. After 1 Brave Bird and 1 Fly, (and after sustaining a Burn condition and some recoil damage), my Staraptor took it out.

In short, I beat Dahlila without losing a Pokemon.

I just got the Pikachu Coloured Pichu today since that's I had nothing better to do. I also have my second box full of competitive Pokemon. All I need to do is EV train two more and the box will be complete. Those two are RNG bred shinies which are Pineco and Riolu (a special based one and the brother of my first RNGd Lucario). After those are EV trained and movesets are done, I will start to use EXP. Share to evolve Pokemon for the National Pokedex.

When I have 100 Pokemon left in the National Pokedex, I'll make a list showing which ones I need so people can see my progress if they care.

I actually tried my hand at some of the Battle Frontier's facilities the other day on Platinum, seeing as I recently defeated the Elite 4 for a second time with my main in-game team. First I attempted the Battle Hall, which I didn't realise entailed the participant entering one Pokemon and choosing their opponent's type. I got up to about an 18-streak on that with my Gliscor before being defeated and turned my attention to the Battle Tower. I knew that it would take a streak of 21 matches unbeaten for the Tower Tycoon to pay attention, so I first entered with Gliscor, Azumarril and Electivire and then planned on using Infernape, Staraptor and Leafeon in my next seven battles so that I could use my first three Pokemon again in the round of battles that i'd have to face Palmer. However, I didn't realise that i'd already completed 7 matches, so I actually had to go up against Palmer with 'Team 2'.

Needless to say, I failed spectacularly.

US Platinum: Leveled Charizard and Armaldo to Level 100, and maxed Swellow's happiness. EV-trained a Turtwig and a Croconaw since they were the only starters (not counting starters from the spin-offs) in my PC that I hadn't trained. They're currently Level 50 and have reached their final stage.

I'm also raising my Staraptor's happiness.

When I last posted, I believe I may have mentioned that I owned 30 Pokemon, despite having only one badge. Well, I have since condensed that number.

I released over half of my Pokemon, for a few reasons. The first being that it was taking far too long, longer than I imagined, to raise them all to similar levels. I had hoped that as they individually became stronger, raising their levels would become easier, but I was...knida wrong. Dx

And so I felt terrible having my Pokemon spent most of their time in the PC Boxes and only being able to be out exploring to world with me rather briefly. So I saw this as giving my precious Pokemon a chance to flourish in the wild, doing as they please without being trapped in the Boxes for lengthy amounts of time. Also, some of them had natures that were not equipped for fighting, and I didn't want to force them into battle when they truly did not enjoy it.

The second reason was that I plan to get HeartGold when it comes out in the U.S., and a good chunk of the Pokemon I released were Pokemon I hoped to train in Johto. So, I decided to leave myself with an element of surprise for that game and thus released Pokemon I might want for my Johto journey, as I don't normally like to have more than one Pokemon from the same species, unless one is shiny and the other is not, or something.

Some of the Pokemon I've kept I can obtain in Johto, but at fairly late stages in the game (at least, late in the first half), so I decided to keep them for now, though I may ultimately release them as well and keep only those I can't obtain in HeartGold (except for my shiny Chikorita :D).

So right now I'll just train my Pokemon, and then head off towards Eterna City.

Now I have 2 of the right nature and sent them over to my diamond for a rare candy buffet. Now I have a Dragonair with flawkess attack and speed but less than 5 in every other stat. The other one has 3 stats with 30, 2 with 20+ and 16 in speed. Which one do you think I should use? Im leaning towards the latter and I am sure most others will too but just getting some other opinions.

Well, after beginning my journey through Sinnoh with 30 Pokemon, I am now officially down to six. Ahaha, I find it kind of silly how I thought I could raise 30 Pokemon equally as I traveled through the region. No way man. =P So I've released 24 of them back to the wild, and here's my team now:

Navi (Shiny Chikorita) ;152;
Level 12
Male
Calm Nature

Camellia (Bulbasaur) ;001;

Nova (Charmander) ;004;

Level 10
Male


Vasuki (Gible) ;443;
Level 10
Female
Brave Nature

Vari (Eevee) ;133;
Level 10
Male


As you can see, I can't remember three of my Pokemon's natures. I be a bad trainer. Dx Ahaha. Anyways, we're in Floaroma Town now, making our way towards Eterna Forest. Fwee~

Everytime I read this thread I always get the urge to restart my Platinum file, but I'm a bit skeptical because I want to finish my current file, and I have 6 badges, but I don't really want to....

The team I'm thinking about this team;

Ponyta -> Magmortar
Psyduck -> Milotic
Budew -> Abomasnow
Kricketot -> Togekiss
Misdreavus -> Hippowdon
Hoothoot -> Gallade

As I travel along in Sinnoh, I'm gonna swap in new members when they become available in the wild.

I've just kinda lost interest in my current file, so I'm gonna restart.

After I trained my team on route 203, I headed for Oreburgh City, and found Roark in the mine. He headed for the gym as I trained some more until my team reached level 15, and I challenged Roark. Chikorita defeated both Geodude and Onix with ease, but fell to Cranidos after a Headbutt flinch. Totodile finished off Cranidos, and I got my badge. Healed up, spoke to my rival, and went underground in Oreburgh Mine. Beat both the TG Grunts in Jubilife City, got the accesories kit (which I never use), healed, and went towards Floaroma Town. Beat the TG Grunts in the meadow, and defeated the TG Grunts in Valley Windworks. After defeating both sets, I headed towards Eterna Forest, and eventually made it out, after Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and Mareep all evolved. After beating the hikers and the gym trainers, I healed, and challenged Gardenia. Quilava made quick work of her with his Flamethrower. Afterwards I healed, and saved.

Yay, I continued EV training my Roselia again, hoping to finish it in special attack and start on speed, only problem is I lost count, yeah.

Oh well, I suppose I will just keep killing those Gastly's until I think it's finished. And I caught a heap more Pokemon, working my way to as complete as humanly possible. That's about it, once I have finished training Roselia I will take it along with the rest of my party to the new areas that I haven't explored and catch some more Pokemon.

Once that's done I suppose I will wait out the release of HG/SS and catch more Pokemon for my PokeDex.

This week:

I transferred six Pokémon from Emerald and evolved them to put my dex up to like 460 something - not many more to go ^.^
I managed to get my Milotic up to LV100 - thank goodness for boosted experience, but she doesn't seem as good as my old LV100 Milotic who was raised to LV100 without boosted experience - maybe I should raise another with the same nature without boosted to see who is better?
I've been battling people in the Battleground in an attempt to further the levels of my main team in order to get through the E4 another six times with great ease so I can buy the piano for my villa ^.^
I planted about 30 berries, but not many yielded the amount I had hoped for - I watered them every hour for as many days as they took to grow, but I didn't get the desired results. I need to do much research into mulches and how the location can alter growth rates etc... however, it did get me enough berries planted to buy the wall-clock for my villa ^.^
I've been catching loads of Pokémon just to fill up my boxes and dex. I've seen about 100 more than I've caught and I'd like to catch it up now that I've only got a small amount to see so I'm just working steadily on that (hopefully have seen and caught and have in box one of everything for HGSS coming out next month).

Well, that's all really... maybe post again next week if enough happens in my game x

Went to Hearthome City and into the Gym. First, second and third times I battled Fantina I failed miserably, so sulked in Amity Square for a while with my Prinplup, fantasizing about vandalizing the gym. Then, as I was doing that warp-tile-puzzle-ruin-thing, I stumbled upon a Spooky Plate. And then it hit me.
Quicker than greased Garchomp I scurried back to the gym, my Rotom in tow. Then after a pep talk with my team about my new strategy, we challenged the Gym leader again.
Rai the Rotom 1KOed her entire team with Ominous Wind! Of course, my secret strategy was to give Rai the Spooky Plate to hold.
The Relic badge belongs to me! Next Gym here I come!

In Diamond, I just finished getting through Stark Mountain with Buck. I had a team consisting of Rayquaza, Mewtwo (I migrated the two, obviously), Dragonite, Lucario, Milotic, and Graveler (an HM slave, obviously). The Dragonite, Lucario, and Milotic were all part of one of my two Elite Four teams, so this was an excellent opportunity to train them a bit. My Milotic gained two levels there and is now at level 64. So I made it to the end, swapped out my team, and went to try to capture Heatran... I managed to get him to nearly 1HP and tried paralyzing him and putting him to sleep, but I failed to catch him. Time to try again sometime...

In Platinum, I had just finished raising the following team to level 60:

Imp (female Infernape, how lucky) @ Lum Berry
- Flamethrower
- Close Combat
- Grass Knot (never used)
- Thunderpunch (never used)

Ferrum (Bronzong, who didn't participate at all) @ Lum Berry
- Iron Defense
- Calm Mind
- Confuse Ray
- Psychic

Robomaster (Rotom, Wash form) @ Splash Plate
- Discharge
- Shadow Ball
- Confuse Ray (never used)
- Hydro Pump

Moria (female Garchomp) @ Pecha Berry
- Earthquake
- Crunch
- Fire Fang (never used)
- Dragon Claw

MetaKnight (Gallade) @ Scope Lens
- Psycho Cut
- Leaf Blade
- Close Combat (never used)
- Swords Dance

Kraken (male Tentacruel) @ Icicle Plate
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Barrier (never used)
- Sludge Bomb (never used)

Aaron was hilariously easy to beat--all his Pokemon got OHKO'd. Even his Drapion was no match for Moria's Earthquake, and MetaKnight's Psycho Cut made easy work of Heracross. Imp took care of the rest--in fact, she started off the battle.

Bertha was another OHKO wonder. I put MetaKnight first in my party, wondering if Bertha would use the same strategy as in Diamond/Pearl of sending in a Water/Ground-type first. Sure enough, she did--it was Whiscash, who immediately surrendered to a Leaf Blade. Then Bertha sent out Gliscor and I switched to Kraken, who OHKO'd it with Ice Beam. Kraken just spammed Surf on the rest--even Rhyperior was OHKO'd.

Flint was easier than I thought--in Diamond, I used to have a hard time with him. This was my first Flint Battle in which Flint's Pokemon never got the chance to set up Sunny Day. All his Pokemon were OHKO'd, and I finally got to try out Robomaster's Hydro Pump here.

Lucian was yet another easy battle. Robomaster OHKO'd Mr. Mime with Shadow Ball, Moria OHKO'd Espeon and Alakazam with Crunch, Imp OHKO'd Bronzong with Flamethrower... The presence of his Gallade surprised me... Robomaster failed to OHKO him with Shadow Ball, but Gallade didn't do too much damage with Stone Edge before suffering a 2HKO. Even his Sitrus Berry didn't help.

Then there was Cynthia. At first I was going to send out Ferrum first, who would max its defenses and frustrate Cynthia. The only problem was that Psychic would have no effect on Spiritomb, who I expected would be her first Pokemon. So much for that idea... Instead Moria went first, and 2HKO'd Spiritomb with Dragon Claw with no problems. Then Cynthia sent out Lucario, who Imp OHKO'd with Close Combat. Then Cynthia sent out her Garchomp... what, level 62? That's lower than it was in D/P! Kraken happened to be faster than her, and landed a OHKO with Ice Beam. Then Cynthia sent out Togekiss, who Robomaster 2HKO'd with Discharge. In between, Togekiss used Water Pulse, but Robomaster was fortunate enough to not get confused.

And here's where things get interesting. After the fall of Togekiss, Cynthia sent out Milotic. I sent out MetaKnight for the job. I took a deep breath, fearing a frozen Gallade, and MetaKnight used Swords Dance. Then Milotic used... Mirror Coat? I think Cynthia had a blond moment. Anyway, MetaKnight OHKO'd Milotic with Leaf Blade on the next turn. Cynthia sent out her last Pokemon, Roserade, who MetaKnight easily whisked away with a Psycho Cut.

Yay, my team got into the Hall of Fame! Of course, Ferrum didn't deserve it--it never even participated in any of the battles. In those battles, Kraken and Robomaster got to level 61. Also, my Pokemon never had to eat any of the berries they were holding. The only item I used was a Soda Pop, to heal Robomaster after the battle with Lucian. And even though it was a pretty easy go, my heart still pounded during the battle with Cynthia.

After that, the next step was to obtain the National Dex. It turned out there were only two Pokemon I haven't seen yet. One was Manaphy, which I had to go to the mansion for. The other was Wooper, of all things. This was my excuse to go to the Great Marsh, which I hadn't done yet in this game. I saw several Woopers there, and caught a Tangela as a bonus. Plus I found a few little items like Poke Balls and Shards. Now off to get the National Dex...

Lastly, I sailed to the Battle Park from Snowpoint City, having that boring chat with Cynthia beforehand. What surprised me was that as soon as I entered the Fight Area, my rival walked up to me, and we ended up in a double battle with Flint and Volkner. (Wait a minute... didn't I just defeat Flint...?) Moria happened to be first in my party, and my rival happened to send out a Staraptor. Moria then OHKO'd all of Flint and Volkner's Pokemon with Earthquake, Staraptor remaining unharmed in the process. I love happy accidents.

So after I defeated Gardenia, I healed, and cleared out the TG Eterna Building. Phanpy and Bayleef combined forces defeated Jupiter, healed, and went to the Bike Shop. After I hatched the Egg, I hopped on my bike, and defeated all the traines on Cycling Road and in Wayward Cave, and picked up TM Earthquake too. Beat the trainers outside Hearthome City and in the Gym, and challenged Fantina. She was no match for Teddiursa's Crunch and Flaaffy's HP Psychic. Healed, and Croconaw solo'd my Rival, Will. After I beat him too, I beat all the trainers en route to Solaceon, and healed in Solaceon. Made it to the bottom of the Solaceon Ruins, got HM Defog, caught a passing Zubat for Defog, and made it to the top of the Lost Tower. Defeated more trainers, and made it to Veilstone. Beat all the Gym trainers, and saved.

I've also done a few more battles in different parts of the Battle frontier to earn some more battle points, which I've spent on TM's for my Chimecho and Altaria, allowing me to teach them calm mind and aerial ace. I also taught Altaria outrage via move tutor. Also, my Banette has reached level 44, and my Electrike is level 21. I should be able to evolve her soon.

After I beat the Veilstone Gym trainers, I challenged Maylene. Donphan defeated all three of her pokemon with Magnitude, all with OHKOs. Afterwards, I helped Lucas at the Veilstone TG HQ, and traveled to Pastoria. Beat all the trainers along the way, and got to the Pokemon Center in Pastoria. Defeated my rival with Croconaw again, and all the trainers at the Gym. After beating all of them, I challenged Wake. Bayleef OHKO'd Quagsire with Magical Leaf, and Flaaffy OHKO'd both Gyarados and Floatzel with Discharge. Afterwards, I beat the TG Grunt, got the Old Charm from Cynthia, and made it to Celestic Town after beating all the trainers. Spoke to Cynthia's Grandmother, and defeated the TG Grunt. Spoke to Cyrus, and beat him too with Bayleef. Afterwards I flew to Jubilife City, and got the Poketch apps. Surfed to Canalave City and beat the Fisherman. Went to Iron Island, and beat all the trainers, and most of my team evolved. Made it out, defeated the Gym trainers, and challenged Byron. Quilava OHKO'd both Magneton and Steelix with Flamethrower, while Donphan OHKO'd Bastiodon with Magnitude. Afterwards I healed and saved.

I have restarted my Platinum to try using a different team. This time I picked Turtwig as my starter. Defeated my rival's Chimchar. Caught a Starly and a Bidoof to be used in my team, and an extra Bidoof as my HM slave.

Travelled to Jubilife City. Received the Poketch and the Old Rod. Defeated my rival again at Route 203. It was the time to get my first gym badge. Received HM06 - Rock Smash. Arrived at Oreburgh City. Challenged the Oreburgh Gym. My Turtwig's Razor Leaf finished off Roark's entire team. Eventually, won the first badge.

After going back to Jubilife City, teamed up with Lucas to defeat two Team Galactic grunts. Received the Fashion Case.

Defeated the trainers along Route 204. Reached Floaroma Town. After defeating the Galactic grunt in front of the building in Valley Winworks, I saved the game.

Put my IV bred and EV trained Gyarados as the father, and started hatching eggs looking for a shiny Magikarp. So far I have hatched about 50 eggs, and still going strong. I hope I get one long before I reach 5000, maybe even 2500.

Platinum: Obtained two Magby's over Wi-Fi last night, traded one of them over to my Diamond game so I could finally obtain a Stunky. I also obtained two TM's I needed, and finally taught Banette shadow claw. Speaking of Banette, she is currently level 70, as she finally learned how to use trick, I could finally use this and her frisk ability for the purpose I originally intended for her, helping me find items held by wild Pokemon. Thanks to her, I've already obtained another magmarizer. I've began training my Ledyba and evolved him into Ledian. I'm also trying to evolve my Starly in order to fill Pokedex pages, he has already evolved into Staravia. He is currently level 30. I also captured an Aron and a Bagon today.

I have to get more items for my teams like more focus sashes and it takes way to long to obtain 48 battle points. SO once i get a chance to trade between DS's i will add more items to it

Got bored, so I used a Random Number Generator to generate a team for my Japanese Platinum out of all the non-legends and got 158, 57, 351, 11, 246, and 417. This meant my team was going to be(Fully evolved, of course) Feraligatr, Primeape, Castform, Butterfree, Tyranitar, and Pachirisu. Of those, I've had no experience with Primeape, Castform, and Pachirisu. I started with a Piplup so my rival would have the starter that is strong against Totodile. Didn't really want to make it too easy for me. Caught a couple Bidoof and Starly and traded eggs over of the Non-Sinnoh dex Pokémon, but two at a time only(As in, trade a pair in and hatch them, trade a second pair in and hatch them, and trade in the remaining egg). Had a rough start because of my team being Lv.1. Managed to get through that and get them all to Lv.6 before challenging trainers. Then I got four of them to lv.8(Caterpie evolved, and Larvitar is in training). When I traded over Larvitar's egg, I traded a Bidoof back holding a Lucky Egg to make my training go smoother.

Current Team:
ワニノコ/Totodile-M-Lv.8-Scratch/Leer/Water Gun/-

Well, my team and I made it into Veilstone City. After looking around for a bit, we went off to the next route to train. And, soon enough, my Eevee evolved into Espeon! =D I have never trained an Espeon before, so this is pretty cool for me, especially since I don't really use many Psychic Pokemon. Ever.

So, still getting everyone up to level 25. I realize that my team is rather underleveled at the moment, so I'm thinking I'll take on the Pastoria Gym before Veilstone so my Ivysaur and Bayleef can just demolish them, muahahah.

I just IV bred a male Jolly Ralts with 11/31/25/2/20/31. I'm satisfied with the Defense/Sp Defense IVs, HP could be higher, but as long as I have perfect IVs in the appropriate stats, I'm happy. After it hatched, I tossed it in the Daycare, and leveled it to lvl 24. Leveled it up and evolved into Kirlia, then again into Gallade just so it could learn Swords Dance. I EV trained it, and currently EV training a HP Ice Magnezone, and later on will IV breed and EV train a Baton Pass Ninjask.

This is going to be a spin-off to my Platinum Journey Posts for those who bothered to read those. It's going to be detailing my captures of Legendary Pokemon. A long time ago my friend took my game and used an Action Replay to test (which worked) his rebattle codes which I forgot about until last week. Although I hate those things, I now have a chance to EV train legends if I want to use them over Wi-Fi.

After resetting in Stark Mountain for Heatran for days, I finally managed to get a Naive Heatran with Hidden Power(70) Grass. IVs are 31/26/31/30/31/31. Heatran is now in my Platinum wainting to be EV trained. My next stop is going to be Turnback Cave for a Bold/Impish Giratina.

Edit: Change of plans. I'm going to the Spear Pillar to catch a Timid/Modest Palkia. Ignore the Giratina stuff. I plan to catch it later.

So I got my PCP a while ago. I'm somewhat tempted to EV train it and use it for serious.


But the other little pet project I've been working is finding a male extreme speed dratini off the GTS.
Sadly every attempt has been met with failure.
Dratini number one was a complete bust
#2 was close, being from a "Faraway Land" and correct level...but it was the "wrong" one.
#3 was also close, being from a Farawy Land, but alas, it was from the Safari Zone. But it also has Dragon Rush and Aqua tail so net gain I guess.

On the Dragonair side of things, I've not had any luck. There's been two reasonable Dragonairs, one for an Arbok and one for a Clamperl (Female).
The Arbok I have isn't good enough, not sure if I'll train it up a little. Just saw it today, actually.

Clampearl, on the other hand, I've been working on for the past three days. It is currently level 40 and still not good enough. The worst part of this is that I can't find this Dragonair on Diamond's GTS, so I can't see what level it needs to be at!

After a little over 2 weeks of SRing, I finally got my shiny Dialga. Unfortunately, my Mild Synchronize Ralts failed me. On the upside though, it has a Timid nature, which I can still use, and all of its IV's are in the 20's (other than its defensive stats). All in all, I'm pretty happy with it. :)

Right now I am breeding a Slowpoke to be a Slowbro, I have bred about every nature except a Quiet, then I can IV train it to be a little better, then EV train it. After that, I am going to breed a Shuckle for the VGC 2010. My current best one is impish, 29/x/30/x/27/x as you can see, it can have a little improvement, I am hoping o get HP, and both DEF to 30 each, An hopefully DEF to 31 because Sp.Def can be lower since it will have sandstorm which makes is sp. def 1.5x. Then I need to train a Aerodactyl and a Hippowdon.

I traded my Manaphy and Phione to Pearl because I wanted to rename them, then traded them back. I also traded a Skitty, a Wailmer (inb4HSOWA), a Seviper, a Zigzagoon, and a Horsea over while I was trading with Pearl.

To take my mind off my GTS failures (now there are no Dragonairs at all!), I decided to get on PCP's EV training.
I stopped by the Fronteir and bought me a Power Bracer (whatever the attack one is called) and headed over to the Sunnyshore-Pastoria routes.

Currently I'm at 52 Attack Effort Points, and 3 Speed Effort points. Also one pesky Sp. Attack effort point that snuck it's way in.
I think I've got the Pokerus somewhere in my PC, think I'll take that out today. If I can find that guy/girl with the 6 Atk EP payload, that's like 20 Effort points a battle! 10 battles and Pichu will be all set on Attack, ja?

I also just caught a female Croagunk in the Great Marsh and named her Pandora. :> I'm not sure if I'll be keeping her or not, since I was planning on just sticking with six Pokemon in my Sinnoh journey (whereas in Johto/Kanto I plan on having as many as I like).

I took a break from Abra IV breeding mainly because I can't find a mother with x/x/x/31/x/31, they always seem to come out one or the other. I hatched two males with the right set, but sadly, it had crappy HP/Def/SpDef IVs, both of them. One even managed to be 7/4/1/31/12/31, and somehow got HP ICE 69. I always thought the better the IVs, the stronger the HP, but I guess not.

Anyway, I finally got around to EV training my Timid Gastly (x/x/x/31/x/31), and after about an hour, I finished EV training it in Speed and Special Attack. Its currently a lvl 49 Gengar in my pc.

I have too many IV bred and EV trained pokemon that I stopped training halfway -_-

Afterwards, I tossed it in the PC, and took out my Nincada. EV trained that baby too, in HP and Attack, and it is currently a lvl 33 Ninjask in my PC. Idk what I'm going to do with the Shedinja, I may just trade it away.... For anyone who is interested, its Adamant, no EVs, and has x/31/x/x/x/31, and knows X-Scissor.

So once I finish my Abra project, and finish a Machamp, Vaporeon, Espeon, and Jolteon, I'm going to train all of them up, either to lvl 100 or until they learn the moves I want them to learn, and then will just wait patiently for SS.

Well, my team and I just took out the Pastoria and Veilstone Gyms. :) My team battled fantastically, I love them so much! :D

And now, after reading this AMAZING Pokemon comic on deviantart, I was inspired to capture a Buneary and train her into a Lopunny. And I think, being inspired by the characters in the comic (two of which are a Floatzel named Napoleon and a shiny Lopunny named Cotton) who fell in love, my Charmeleon, Nova, seems to have really taken a liking to our newest addition: Mira the Buneary. So we'll see what becomes of those two in the future~

So for now, I'm going to continue training (my main team are all at level 27-28) and then head to Pastoria to thwart whatever crazy plan Team Galactic are cooking up.

US Platinum: Leveled Roserade and Pikachu up to Level 70. Been thinking of EV-training my Groudon once Roserade and Pikachu reach Level 100. Not sure yet, though. I'll decide some other time.

Oh yeah, in my last post I mistakenly said I finished leveling up Charizard. I meant Torterra...Yeah, I know, but I was tired and on painkillers, so meh.

I've just finished hatching and evolving some Pokemon. Because of that, I finished the Hoenn part of the National Pokedex. I'm going to work on the Johto Pokemon next.

Some minor things I've done include getting all the Rotom forms at once. I've also almost completed every Contest. I just need to finish the Master Rank Cool Contest which I'll do today.

Still breeding Timid Abra's, but despite both parents having x/x/x/31/x/31, eggs hatching with those IVs are a rarity -_-

Other than that, I went to the Battleground today with my EVd Gengar, got him up from lvl 50 to lvl 60. Just got a Timid Latias from a friend, gonna EV train that soon.

Platinum: Been training Pokemon, and slowly filling up the pages in my pokedex. (412 seen, 266 obtained) Also, by taking advantage of a fake Emerald game, I'm arranging to have some Pokemon I need transferred to Platinum soon. So far I have a Poochyena, a Taillow, a Whismur and a Makuhita. They're all on my real Emerald game, holding shell bells, all with different ID numbers to increase my changes of winning the Pokemon lottery.

On Spear Pillar I spent quite some time soft resetting for a good IVd Timid Palkia. IVs in order are x/x/31/31/x/31. Because of how easy Palkia is to catch, I used a Luxury Ball and traded over to Platinum. Now I'll head over to Valor Cavern for Azelf. This will be harder because the catch rate is lower.

Reset for a Timid Azelf today, and got one with 27-28/x/x/27-28/x/31, which is what I wanted. Traded it, along with a Rash EVd Heatran, and a Timid Latias to Curvedbean for a Careful Mudkip (31/25/28/x/31/x), an Impish Hippopotas (31/31/31/x/x/x), and an Impish Gligar (31/31/31/x/x/x), which will be EV trained once I figure out their spreads. Also I've been going to the Battleground everyday now with my EVd Gengar, currently lvl 66.

I've decided to restart my other Platinum, and I cleaned it out last night. Almost forgot about the PCP I downloaded, so going to SR for a good IVd one, but I have no idea what I'm gonna EV train it in. Spent all my money on Coins in the Game Corner, and bought TM24 Thunderbolt, TM10 Hidden Power, and TM90 Substitute. Once I get a good PCP, I'm gonna restart with my team of Magmortar, Milotic, Abomasnow, Hippowdon, Lucario (or Bronzong), and Togekiss.

Kingdra isn't weak to either Grass or Electric, his Dragon type resists Grass and Electric, leaving him only weak to Dragon.

As for me, I've started hatching eggs for my new Platinum team. I just hatched a Mild F Snover, and will breed it for Seed Bomb/Leech Seed. I'm excited at the prospect of Leech Seed and Snow Warning sapping HP from the opponent *insert evil laugh*

Beat the trainers at the Trainer School, and got the Potion and the Town Map. Afterwards I defeated my rival, and trained some more. Made it to Oreburgh City, and currently I'm training my team to level 12. I've never gotten to Oreburgh with a team lower than level 10, so I'm excited at the new challenge. I've decided to keep my team underleveled, so the Gym Leaders will actually be a challenge.

Finally bread two of my Scyther to have one with flawless HP/Def IVs. Manage to hatch over 60 eggs (!) which should be a challenge trying to figure out their IVs. Luckily, I attached a Everstone to my female Adamant Scyther beforehand so I can get the same nature that I needed.
First off, I'm going to check my shiny Geodude's IVs; that way I can calculate my secret ID. From what I remember, I caught it on the first day that I started Platinum.

After I trained my team to lvl 12, I challenged Roark, and it was a challenge. Marril managed to take down both Geodude and Onix with Water Gun, while Hippopotas killed Cranidos with Earthquake. I healed after, caught a Bidoof, taught it Rock Smash, and went through Oreburgh Gate. Got TM Flash, even though I never use it. Went to Jubilife City, got the new Poketch App, and defeated the Grunts with Lucas. Healed up, and made it to Floaroma Town, talked to everyone there too, and got various stuff. Beat the TG Grunt at the Windworks, and again at the Floaroma Meadow. Challenged Mars, and Nosepass managed to defeat Purugly. Its the first time I haven't lost a pokemon to that Purugly. Even though its Friday, the Drifloon didn't show up, idk why, I guess not until next week. Anyway, healed, and made it to Eterna Forest, and took advantage of Cheryl, and trained my team up to lvl 19. Beat all the trainers, evolved Marril into Azumarril, and healed in Eterna. Went east towards Mt. Coronet (not evolving Nosepass yet), and beat those trainers. Talked to more people, and hit the Gym. Hoothoot defeated the Gym trainers, and evolved in the process. Challenged Gardenia, and Noctowl OHKO'd both Cherrim and Turtwig with Wing Attack, while Snover 3HKO'd Roserade with Icy Wind. Healed afterward, and saved.

Yesterday, I evolved my Kadabra into an Alakazam. This is new to me because I have never done this before. I didn't get to do a whole lot of other things in the game. I tried to chain for a shiny Absol because of the swaming but the highest I got was 7. I'm not very good at chaining.

I restarted Emerald so that I can migrate any Pokemon I might have missed in the Hoenn region, IE Blaziken, and a master ball, and a Johto starter I believe. I also might restart Sapphire for another Kyogre and master ball. I'm going to save those master balls for Soul Silver. I also need some of the TMs from those game for the move-sets I plan on having in Soul Silver. I better get those two games finished before their batteries die. I have a lot of confidence in the batteries though as my Blue and Silver both still work.

Back to Diamond, I want to try to get my team's levels up.
Infernape - 79
Alakazam - 62
Kyogre - 78
Lucario - 91

SHINY ROSELIA!

I won't lie, she was a complete ***** to catch, between Leech Seed and Grasswhistle. I paralyzed her with Spike's Thunder Wave, then struck back with Benika's (my Charizard) Dragon Rage, then threw a Poke Ball at her and caught her. I named her Violet for her purple rose.

Today I reset for a good PCP, took a bit. I was going to go get some Jirachi's, but something came up, so I'll shall be going tomorrow.

Other than that, I completely owned this noob in WiFi, he was a complete hacker. It was so obvious after I discovered he had hacked for 6 shiny Spiritombs, each with Wonderguard, and various noob moves like Hyper Beam, Hydro Cannon, and Roar Of Time. He lost to me 6-0 three times, and he kept complaining about me being a hacker, when he was a f*cking hacker. I managed to beat him with only Toxic and Stealth Rock damage racking up, while my Suicune hid behind multiple Subs. It was fun destroying him though, no matter how boring and long it took.

Today I started to make some real progress with beating one of my friends over wifi. He usually beats me pretty badly but I changed my strategies around a bit and I got him down to almost two guys.
