From what I hear, apparently the side-missions take place in between the plot. Like apparently Bidoof's takes place after Chapter 3, although I don't know if its optional or if you have to do it.

uhhhhh
18th April 2009, 5:04 PM
Korobooshi, I have a copy of game and I can tell you it's OPTIONAL. You get to play them from the Main Menu. I just finished Bidoof's Special Episode.

Awsome. That means you can learn about the Past and Future whilst playing in the present. Neat idea about making them optional throughout the storyline.

I'm putting this in spoilers for now, just to be safe...

The cafe where Spinda, Wynaut, and Wobba are opens as early as Chapter 5 before exploring the Waterfall Cave, but you can only enter at Chapter 6. It's automatic.

EDIT: If you saw the initial post. My mistake. XD My Japanese is so limited. XD

EDIT #2:
Well, Butterfree, Beedrill, Combee, Burmy, Pachirisu and Buneary are in this version w/o the need of Wonder Mail. I have yet to see if there are any differences in a dungeon. So far, the Pokemon contained in the dungeons up to Steam Cave are still the same. None were removed. =/

Another Special Episode appears after defeating Groudon. This time it's Wigglytuff (as Igglybuff). Playing it right now. Loving the music they placed here. Reminds me of MD1. Oh wait. ;D

Ew, Luxray was changed into an Electrike? No more Thunderbolt at the end of Amp Plains then. At least it should be a little easier since it can't charge, though I'm wondering why they decided on the change.

Hopefully the Arceus mission will be distributed with Wondermail with a password instead of how the Mewtwo/Celebi missions were handled.

Korobooshi Kojiro
19th April 2009, 10:24 PM
What is it with Luxray being changed into other Electric Pokemon? It happened in Volume 30 of Pokemon Special as well. :0

I wonder why it changed here though. In PokeSpecial it was because the writer decided to introduce Luxray as a good Pokemon, so they switched Mars' to Electivire.

Rakurai
20th April 2009, 2:09 AM
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Shinx is a starter Pokemon now?

I also noticed that there was no mention of the Luxio being changed. So does that mean it's an Electrike leading a bunch of Luxio? That sounds even more awkward.

Korobooshi Kojiro
20th April 2009, 3:23 AM
Oh yeah, I forgot Shinx is a starter. Still, I don't see how that would matter. I mean they have Grovyle as a full plot character who joins your team despite being related to one of the starters, so I don't see how having a Luxio in one tiny part would hurt.

Mr. Joker
20th April 2009, 5:32 AM

It's a Manectric leading a bunch of Electrike

Huh. I thought that was weird that Electrike was the leader. I thought "Wait, doesn't he mean Manectric?"

I'm currently in Amp Plains right now BTW so I've yet to see the changes. XD

Rakurai

Ah. Guess Coronis must've just gotten the two Pokemon mixed up.

That sounds like a fitting replacement, though I can't help but wonder why they changed them. Perhaps it was for difficulty reasons, since that fight was rather tough if you weren't overleveled or hadn't bothered to recruit an Electrike beforehand.

On another subject, I'm hoping that Giratina won't just simply be recruited in its original dungeon with no story involvement whatsoever.

I'm going to take that with a grain of salt until Serebii or Coronis posts something.

Seems a little hard to believe that Giratina wouldn't even get a role in Sky's story, considering its role in Platinum and the latest movie.

Yippee, PMD3's out. Sounds cool so far and I'm really looking forward to Sky Summit. I like the idea of the past, present and future episodes and I'm especially looking forward to the Team Charm one.

When I read about the Electrike, I was so 'WTF' I had to read it again! Thanks for the clarification, Serebii.

All looking good so far. Will probably get it when it comes out here just for the cover alone. I loved Explorer of Time, playing through it again will be fun. Particularly looking forward to the special episodes and the summit. If anything it'll be fun. Actually being able to use Shaymin this time is also win.

P.S. I think I fail for misreading Electrike as Electevire (sp?). Yeah, I was like, "what?'

Don't them being Electrike nullify all their electric attacks? And I'm a little disappointed about the gender Pokemon but I'll live saying I'm a male Riolu.

They will probably rig it and it won't get cancelled, otherwise I don't think they never would have changed it from Luxray an Luxios

Rakurai

Lightningrod only affects foes in PMD, so their attacks will work fine.

Now I'm wondering about the special missions. Namely about whether finishing them gives you any kind of reward, or if they're simply for providing extra story.

EDIT: A central Zero Island dungeon? I honestly hope it's even more evil then South. I also wonder if some of those missing legends have moved into the Zero Island dungeons for the sake of providing more incentive to completing them then just items.

I'm a bit disappointed about the gender thing as well. But I guess I'll just have to pretend to be a boy to get Riolu. Either that or take Riolu as my partner.

jolteonjak
21st April 2009, 4:30 PM
I know this sounds a bit petty, but the whole fact that Arceus doesn't appear to be in this game as a playable character is seriously deterring me from buying it when it comes out in America. That plus I really wanted to guide a Fan-shaped Rotom through dungeons Air Slashing everything...

I could give a rat's *** about Shaymin personally.

Looks like I'll skip this for the 5th generation version when it'll be more worthwhile.

TurtwigFan1
21st April 2009, 4:37 PM
I was also annoyed when I found out that Arceus wasn't an actual character, but it hasn't been officially released yet so it's the price we have to pay. About the gender thing, I'm kinda annoyed that to be an Eevee or Vulpix you have to be a girl. Why couldn't we have been able to be any Pokemon, any gender? Yet another quirk I can't get my head 'round!

Opal Pikachu13
21st April 2009, 5:13 PM
I also don't like the return of the gender exclusive Pokemon either.. being a Shinx requires you to be a boy (and I'm a girl). I guess I have to select boy in order to be Shinx.. :S Arceus as not a playable character kinda annoyed me a bit.

I restarted my game and am once again the Riolu I wanted to be, but this time I chose Vulpix as my partner. Riolu knew Bite again, and Vulpix knows Faint attack. So I guess this does mean the starter knows an egg move.

Not quite, because whenever I recruited a Riolu through a Wondermail mission, it never learn Bite. I figure it's because those two Pokemon don't have very strong movepools early on, so they gave them one their egg moves.

Interesting about the Electrike. This'll make things pretty difficuilt. Then again, I'm planning on a Riolu/Eevee pairing, so it may not be too bad. I like the fact that these missions come in during the game and can be accessed without a Wondermail code or event. Disappointed about Arceus though. But then again, I guess that it would be kinda strange to have the god of Pokemon on your team.

So far, I'm still very interested. I'll have to keep updated and preparing.

I honestly don't care about genders. As long as I get the Pokemon I want, it's useless to me. Does anybody really need their gender in a video game? My Pikachu in PMD2 was male (I'm female. The gender got screwed by AR.^_^; ) and I don't care.

Luxray is Manectric now? And Luxio is Electrike? -.- Weird...Eh, I'll still buy the game for the storyline (even though it's the same), new Pokemon characters, and special episodes.=P

I checked the Spin-off dex, not the DPPt dex. So that's why I said the starters know egg moves.

Anyways, no playable arceus, really got me down, I thought we finally would have get a chance on a (legit) Arceus even though it is in Dungeon, but no >_>

Shaymin, well, what to say.. I don't really care. Too bad the rotom formes aren´t in it.

It's really annoying that Arceus isn't in this game. Couldn't they have put him at the end of a really hard dungeon, or make it so he could only be obtained when the other 492 Pokemon had been obtained or something?

... Anyways, it looks like we'll finally know where the fifth time gear is/was located.

Hmm, yeah, content wise I'm a little dissapointed in this game. Oh well.


Later, Grovyle finds himself, Dusknoir and Celebi still at the Time Tunnel, and is surprised that no one has to vanish. Dialga, now returned to its normal state, has also reappeared, and remarks that they are all revived because of a being on an even higher tier than itself
I guess that's refering to Arceus though, so that's his plot appearance I guess.

Also, is it me, or does the end of Igglybuff's story kind of sound like Armaldo will be executed. 0.o

I'm not really surprised that Rotom's forms aren't available.
Honestly, I somehow doubt there'd be a lawnmower, washing machine, microwave oven, a fan, or a refrigerator just lying around in the PMD(2) world....

I am fairly surprised at the lack of Arcues beyond a statue, though.


As for 3rd version content, I think it's ok for what it is. The side chapters seem pretty cool, there's a few extra dungeons, added in another quest with Shaymin, the Origin & Sky forms, putting the wondermail dungeon missions in as regular post game things is nice.

Rakurai
23rd April 2009, 7:14 AM
The challenge dungeons sound interesting.

I just hope they're appropriately difficult for the sheer amount of time you need to invest in order to unlock them, and not that something you can just mindlessly plow through with a level 100 Pokemon and a large supply of stat boosting items.

uhhhhh
23rd April 2009, 2:39 PM
Hmmm...Moltres? Is Source Cave (The dungeon in Sunflora's episode) accessible in the main story? I have a slight hunch it could be there because it's the only special episode dungeon aside from Jirachi's Dungeon that has a location in the main world map. =/

New dungeons, old event dungeons, some changed pokemon locations, Skymin, the whole Shaymin dungeon thing seems to add on a decent bit.

Come to think of it, what happens to Zero Isle in this game?

I'd have to hope that Destiny Tower is the hardest dungeon in the game if it rewards an item that's essentially a god mode enabler.

Sounds unchanged, aside from the addition of a central dungeon that has yet to be accessed.

I managed to get a copy of the game, but i can't read japanese, I managed to get Riolu as a starter, and a munchlax as partner, but Riolu knew bite? and Munchlax knew Zen headbutt. do the starters have eggmoves in the beginning now? I forgot that my battery was almost dead, so I ended up losing this save file. I'll try again to see if the starter I get knows eggmoves

My Phanpy has Ancient Power. Is it a egg move?

And your partner knows Bite right?

I discovered the same, th starter and your partner each know an eggmove. for Riolu it is Bite, for Munchlax Zen Headbutt and Vulpix Faint Attack, don't know any more though

I like this game so far. My only problem is that I cant read Japanese. That is why, I'm going to write down the menu of the english one.

Juts finished the Spoink misson. Both me and my partner are LV 7.
Again got 200 from 2000..xD.

its like the other dungeon games, if it starts at the bottom asking if u wanna save, its the first and second that make you save, one returns you to the menu, the other lets you continue playing

I have to admit, the new species items added for all Pokemon look pretty cool. The Porygon line just merged with Keckleon with its item (IT Brooch). Still, the fact that you can't get Porygon until after the story line ruins any hopes that I'd have of getting it.

Shinx - Quick Attack
Phanpy - Ancientpower
Meowth - Hypnosis
Riolu - Bite
Vulpix - Faint Attack
Eevee - Flail
Skitty - Zen Headbutt (no Tail Whip)
Munchlax - Zen Headbutt

Apparently the starter starters (Bulbasaur, etc) including Pikachu have no special moves.

I just find it kinda weird that the starter starters don't know any special moves.

It always irked me that only a select few lines of Pokemon and the legends got special items, so I found the addition of items for every Pokemon line to be a welcome change.

Though, now it's bugging me that it seems like the damage absorbing items for the Pokemon that didn't have them before are inferior to the ones present in the original PMD 2 games, seeing as they only function on critical hits, as opposed to any hit.

That's true. But still, Munchlax, Eevee and more pokés can leanr a lot of TM's, so thay did't need eggmoves to then right?

From what I hear, apparently the side-missions take place in between the plot. Like apparently Bidoof's takes place after Chapter 3, although I don't know if its optional or if you have to do it.

Bidoof's side mission takes place after Chapter 6,I think

This is the most useful addition in Sky that I could think of.The Secret Bazaar in the Dungeons on random floors.They can fill up your belly,clean up sticky items(no Cleanse Orb)and do other useful things.This is why you should have quite some money even in dungeons in this game.

I've got the game, and to receive Shaymin Sky Forme you must use the Gracidea Flower, obtained only by recruiting Shaymin at the top of Shaymin Village, by talking to the shaymin at the top right. Then use the flower on Shaymin in a dungeon. I'll edit this post with more interesting info soon (:

The Spinda Café: In the Cafe, your team mates sit on the first table to the left. You can also get rescues from the pokemon to the left, sometimes a ??? Mission which unlocks a new area.

The Shaymin Village: Is unlocked right after you graduate, after you complete some option missions, Mr Mime and Octillery will be outside the Spinda Café. They will tell you about the Shaymin Village and then you must travel up the mountain, restoring it to peace, and saving lives. It's like a mini treasure town full of Shaymin. The second time you go back you can get Shaymin.
