View Full Version : What level were you... (spoilers)

21st March 2009, 7:49 PM
So, I've been stuck trying to beat Temporal Tower for several months now. I'll go through it a few times, get killed, get frustrated and leave off for awhile. I'm at lvl.54, my partner is at lvl.52. We can survive the regular dungeon perfectly fine and kill most of the Pokemon there in one hit.

But DarkDialga kills me Every. Single. Time. It's starting to get really annoying. Stupid Roar of Time.

So I was wondering, what levels were you guys when you finally managed to defeat Dialga? What strategies and tricks did you use?

I knew Dig and Primal Dialga is weak to ground type moves so I kept using Dig. Dig is great because you can evade the goddamn Roar of Time (dunno about the partner though; Reviver Seeds help).

Level 43 when I beat him, I think. I was a lil Torchic back then.

Somewhere in the 50s.

Sleep Powder is awesome.

When I first battled him, I was lv. 44 and my partner lv. 43.

I grew to lv. 57 and my partner lv. 55 before I managed to kill that guy. God it was so hard until I randomly found a Dig TM on the floor just before Primal Dialga. Then I killed them on the next try.

...I thought Palkia was much harder. Hah. Use any status inflicting moves (Paralysis or sleep would work best)/Sleep seeds you have, and then just UNLEASH TEH POWER

I was on... Lv.37? 40? I don't know. But I throw to the DarkDialga Stun Seed, then, I go near to she and I throw to she Sleep Seeds and I beat she with Digs,Bubbles and Chelly's (My partner Turtwig) Razor leafs and Mega Drains. Revive seeds are helpful too.

Well, I think I was around lv 40
Mudkip used endavour so whenever it learned that.
Basicaly, Kiop used Endavour, I (Chikorita) Used sleep powder, Solar beam, He used Mud slap.
1/4 of you bag with Sleep seeds
1/4 of your bag with things that revive your PP
1/2 Bag of Reviver seeds
Yeah Thats what I sort of did

I don't recall what level I was exactly, but I did have some trouble with him. I was Turtwig with my partner as Torchic. I had Torchic use his fire type moves, but I didn't have anything very useful with Turtwig (Tackle, Bite, Mega Drain & Razor leaf, I think). I think I eventually started trying to compile some sleep or totter seeds from the levels before him, and I think that finally pushed me over him. Using Violent seeds can help as well (I think they're only in darkness though) but use them at the right time, because the effect is gone if he kills you. In general, keep an eye out for items that will help. For me at least, I don't usually carry things like totter seeds, and I might leave them behind if I don't keep the final battle in mind.

Also, his Ancientpower attack (broken) can double his speed, so if you can find a way to avoid it that'd be good. Although the only way I've noticed is to attack from distance, but that could leave you open to roar of time (and you have to be able to attack from distance, which not everyone can).

If all else fails, you might try using an escape orb to go and train further somewhere else, then comeback later. Also, assuming you saved your progress at a kangaskhan rock, you can walk back the way you come for a possible option to return to Treasure town. I haven't tried these last two things, so I'm not sure they'll work. Just throwing out some ideas.

Hm...I honestly don't remember...maybe somewhere in the 50's...but yes, Roar of Time kills. Killed us everytime. But Splashes and I never give up. We just kept going back and getting killed. Didn't take to long --I just kept leveling and then our HP finally withstood Roar of Time...Dialga was paused,we were hanging on to our very last one hit kill HP, but we did it. We killed him before he moved again. So yea, no tricks...just plain level up to the point that I had tons of HP. Maybe Reviver seeds will help, too, but I'm not much of an item user, so I don't really know.

Anyway, the get frustrated then leave come back repeat happened to me, too. But Darkrai was the annoying one. WE WEREN'T THE PROBLEMS, CESSELIA WAS!!!! SHE KEPT GETTING KILLED BY DARN MISMAGIUS, OTHERWSE BAD DREAMS. WE GREW TO THE 80'S BEFORE THAT EVIL DUDE FINALLY DIED. I WAS SO HAPPY I VOICE-ACTED THE ENTIRE EVENT. Boy, was it fun to voice act Palkia...

Well, now we're LV 86 and 87, at least 30 levels higher than any other team member of ours. Hm...blame Darkrai.

I was level 34 and my partner 32. I knew dig and I used Violent Seeds and Vile Seeds. (Wondermail for the Vile seeds) A lot of Reviver Seeds for my partner though.

Dang, I was at level 65+ when I first even beat Dialga. >.< Which is sad because I was about at level 46 or so when first arrived in the tower. Keep in mind your pokemon types. I was a Chimchar with a Turtwig partner, so that's why it took so long to beat him. I used some odd trick by petrifying Primal Dialga then walking as far back as I could. Then I just fired Flame Thrower like there was no tomorrow. Dialga only used Roar of Time when he was in the frame. But hey, that was just lucky for me. :P

25th March 2009, 5:56 AM
50+ somewhere...

Just like (basically) everyone, Roar of Time =/= happiness, Critical Hits = Mans best friend.

In my first save file, Me (Torchic) and my partner Rob (Mudkip) were both Lv. 42 when we defeated Primal Dialga.

In my second save file, we defeated him at Lv. 32.

Palkia is much harder because he isn't dorment for a turn after using spacial rend. My piplup and pikachu in time destroyed him after a little difeculty(mainly cause piplup knew dig ). My turtwig and mudkip in darkness are not having so much luck. Both level 49.

Turtwig( giga drain, crunch, tackle, razor leaf )

Mudkip ( Wirlpool, hydro pump, tackle, mud slap )

Man, that was hard. Took me to level 60 and even then I just barly won. My advice, get lucky.

28th March 2009, 8:44 AM
i did it at level 51 and lvl 50 partner using an x-eye seed then managed to finish darkrai by level 55 both using x-eye seeds on all the bosses. (except frostlass fire type killed it easily) though i managed to get all 7 treasures by level 70 without any x eye seeds. so maybe i didn't realy need them for the last few i faced.

Personally, i trained in the hidden land (grovyle really helps with training) and got Me (cyndaquil) to lvl 50 and my partner (pikachu) to lvl 49. I then used flamethrower and flame wheel on dialga while pikachu used quick attack and thunderbolt.
