What was the very first Pokemon that you ever caught in dppt and Platinum? (your starter pokemon doesn't count)

12th December 2009, 2:59 AM
mine's was shinx. now one of my favorite pokemon on my team as a luxray.

12th December 2009, 3:04 AM
A Bidoof that I nicknamed Bippa. Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure that a Bidoof was the first thing I caught in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.

12th December 2009, 3:40 AM
It was either a Bidoof, Shinx, or Starly. I can't exactly remember which. I think it was Starly though.

12th December 2009, 3:45 AM
In my Pearl game it was a Starly,which a traded for a Dialga from my Diamond game so i finish the game quick.

12th December 2009, 4:00 AM
a Starly, then a shiny shinx, but i didn't use it

12th December 2009, 4:03 AM
to be honest i changed myself (and made a bet) after i got my first NDS lite and a pearl version that i chould beat every gymleader up to the point where gardenia's badge was mine with just my first pkmn (won $ 50 $) ended up nailing a gibite as my first PKMN found cave by ac-c-dent!!!(and ran out o repel.....)

12th December 2009, 4:17 AM
Mine was starly

12th December 2009, 4:41 AM
Starly that I think I named errrm.... ... ... ... Star! IDK I traded it on the GTS for a Palkia ( OMJAAAAY ) after the Elite 4 as a Staraptor.

12th December 2009, 4:46 AM
mine was starly, i always get the bird first!!

12th December 2009, 4:50 AM
Mine was starly.

12th December 2009, 4:57 AM
Starly for sure. Hence my oh so powerful Staraptor on my team. Then a Shinx (my Luxray). After that, I just stayed with those 3 pokemon until I was able to get Togepi from Cynthia...then I got Gible...then of course Ralts. XD I'm so boring.

12th December 2009, 5:15 AM
A Bidoof. I just had to have one.

12th December 2009, 5:18 AM
Mine was a nice male Shinx, and today it is a really strong respected Luxray that has been on fire lately against other trainers O_O, its level is..... I think it is around 70 or so

12th December 2009, 5:42 AM
Starly man, I really need a flying pokemon to begin with.

12th December 2009, 6:07 AM
Mine was a budew.
I didn't cuaght any pokemon before reaching Jublife.

12th December 2009, 6:10 AM
My first one was either Shnx of Starly. Probably Shinx, but I didn't know he was going to turn out to be what he is now.

12th December 2009, 1:00 PM
I was careful with the new ones...It actually took some time until I gaught even Starly.

12th December 2009, 1:02 PM
First Pokémon I caught in Diamond was Starly and after Starly I caught Shinx.
In Platinum, I believe I first caught Shinx and after Shinx I caught Starly xD

Starly. I always catch the regional bird first.

12th December 2009, 3:18 PM
Mine? let's see.. it's a Starly. *most of the answer is either shinx, starly, or bidoof, doesn't it?*

12th December 2009, 3:41 PM

12th December 2009, 3:49 PM
In my Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, my first Pokemon is the one most ppl say they caught first.
Starly. Besides, I like birds, and Starlys are everywhere,
so that's that. ;)

12th December 2009, 4:28 PM
diamond: starly

buizel kid
12th December 2009, 4:51 PM
Diamond: Starly
Pearl: Bidoof
platinum: Starly

12th December 2009, 5:43 PM
Shinx. First Sinnoh Pokemon I ever caught. But I would laugh if somebody said Giratina XD

12th December 2009, 5:50 PM
I don't know why,but in platinum I basicly did an empoleon-only run.
My first capture was a machop(for HM slave purposes)
Otherwise,Snover.(first for non-hm slave purposes)

12th December 2009, 6:04 PM
Platinum, the first pokemon I caught was..... probably my bronzong. Caught him as a level 18 bronzor.

Diamond, in my new file the first pokemon I caught was a starly. He's a staravia now, mainly cause I only got to the 2nd gym in that file.

12th December 2009, 8:28 PM
Bidoof,Starly,Buizel,or Shinx

12th December 2009, 8:32 PM
It was obviously an Umbreon; those things just come to me!

13th December 2009, 3:33 AM
shinx that eletric cub or kitten or whatever is just so awsome

14th December 2009, 5:26 PM
Shinx in Platinum. There should be a poll along with this so that way we all know which of the same four everyone caught. (Until somebody pops in with an Abra...)

14th December 2009, 5:49 PM
That was a Starly.

14th December 2009, 5:59 PM
mine was a shinx that had intimidate. thought it was soo annoying, having to wait that extra two seconds before every battle. almost turned off the battle animation too...

16th December 2009, 3:31 PM
Starly for me

17th December 2009, 10:30 PM
mine was Starly

17th December 2009, 10:42 PM
Mine was a Shinx ^_^
Its now a VERY powerful Luxray (Ingame-wise of course!)

18th December 2009, 12:30 AM
As like most other people posting in this thread, I first caught a Shinx in Platinum. I used it so often that I ended up taking my Luxray to the Elite 4/Champion Battle. It's pretty strong. :D

18th December 2009, 4:00 PM
Starly in Diamond,Shinx in Platinum

19th December 2009, 10:05 PM
My first capture in Pearl was a Starly, while my first capture in Platinum was Bidoof.

turtwig friend
29th December 2009, 3:47 PM
starly he was a boy and was shiny ;492-s;

5th January 2010, 12:51 AM
In Pearl I think was a Starly. In Platinum a Shinx I believe.

8th January 2010, 1:07 AM
Starly ftw!!!!!!

15th January 2010, 8:11 AM
Mine was a Starly.

15th January 2010, 11:14 AM
A Bidoof...

17th January 2010, 3:59 AM
Shinx in Diamond (which I still use now as a Luxray) and Starly in Platinum (which I still use as a Staraptor)

20th January 2010, 7:23 PM
In order from what I can remember in Platinum was:
Starter: Piplup
1 Starly
2 Bidoof
3 Shinx
4 Wurmple
5 Budew
6 Magikarp
7 Zubat
8 Psyduck
9 Geodude
10 Machop
11 Pachirisu
12 Buizel
13 Buneary
14 Silcoon
15 Cascoon
16 Dustox
I know you asked for the first but, I wanted to show off my memory! Some of them evolved between that and I think I missed out acouple or got them mixed up... well, it's roughly accurate. But, now alot of those have fully evolved and I (obviously!) have alot more.

20th January 2010, 7:31 PM
Cricketot, I started at night so it was easy catching one plus he evolves at lv 10 so it was good having a stage 2 pokemon early on in the game, helped me a lot through the first 2 gyms.

13th June 2010, 5:02 PM
Starly. Naughty nature, and on my team since i caught it. It is a beast with fly.

13th June 2010, 5:55 PM
I think a Quirky Starly for my first ever Pearl game. Its long gone now, but I trained that thing to level 66, and used it in all WiFi battles, until I learned how to EV train, and about natures.

17th June 2010, 4:32 PM
in diamon/pearl/plat i caught starly first

17th June 2010, 7:42 PM
My first was a shinx on route 202

19th June 2010, 12:50 PM
It was a female Shinx I named Catana. I still have her in my box, but never uses her.

26th June 2010, 12:36 AM
Starly. Staraptor is just amazing. I took 4 out of 6 pokemon ONE HIT against an entire team of lv 100's. The only thing that defeated me was recoil damage.

26th June 2010, 4:18 AM
Mine was a starly that eventually became staraptor now it just stays in my box

26th June 2010, 6:33 AM
Ironically, like Ash my first capture was Starly. Brave Nature. Now an awesome Staraptor.

Toxic Spikes
19th July 2010, 12:29 PM
My first capture in Diamond was a Kricketot, the first in Pearl was an Onix, and the first in Platinum was a Psyduck.

19th July 2010, 12:31 PM
Mine was a Kricketot. I thought it'd be good for some reason :P...

19th July 2010, 1:24 PM
Either Starly or Bidoof. It's been too long (over 3 years) for me to remember which one I got first.

19th July 2010, 2:00 PM
Probably Starly

19th July 2010, 2:35 PM
Starly Period!

The 12th Pokemon Master
19th July 2010, 2:36 PM
Starly most likely.

19th July 2010, 3:33 PM
pearl: Starly
Diamond: Bidoof
Platinum: Kricketot

caught the Kricketot because i liked its collar, didn't use it at all :)

19th July 2010, 4:09 PM
A hardy nature Starly, now on level 58. The nature suck sure but i'm keeping him.

19th July 2010, 4:45 PM
A sassy female Shinx. She's now level 82.

19th July 2010, 5:07 PM
Pearl: Bidoof
Diamond: Starly
Platinum: Shinx

19th July 2010, 6:38 PM
A level 3 Kriketot that I caught on release date. I still have it and its UT.

19th July 2010, 6:57 PM
The first pokemon I caught on DPPt was either bidoof or starly, I can't remember which.

19th July 2010, 7:24 PM
...Abra? In my Platinum, at least. In my Pearl, It was starly, so much for being unique.

19th July 2010, 9:20 PM
Starly. I had started with Turtwig, and kept that Turtwig and Starly until I reset the file! Those two absolutely ruled.

3rd August 2010, 5:45 AM
Starly, a Quirky nature I believe.

infernape/typhlosion rule
6th August 2010, 5:48 PM
i got a shinx wich leveled up and is one of my 100s next to buizel and staraptor and...

6th August 2010, 5:56 PM
A male Starly. Then he became the Flier of my team. ^^

Then I replaced him with Giratina...

Nitro123 (PG)
6th August 2010, 6:27 PM
A Starly. Now he's a Level 67, and he know Close Combat, Fly, Return, and Roost. He's great in-game, but I wouldn't take him online.

7 tyranitars
6th August 2010, 7:21 PM
shinx, second place goes to starly :P

6th August 2010, 7:34 PM
Of course Starly, which followed in my team to the champion. Its very strong, but would fail at battle frontier.

8th August 2010, 3:51 AM
Diamond and Platinum- either bidoof or starly.
