GREETINGS TO ONE AND ALL! Your skills have been thoroughly tested, your pokémon have risen to the challenge and been proclaimed victorious! Now, to the next generation, we pass – our knowledge, our skill, and our experiences!
Originally, this club was to bring the victors of the Battle Frontier in Pokemon Emerald, however with the new D/P Battle Tower presenting new and exciting challenges, the Golden Summit now covers D/P info, too. However, due to Diamond and Pearl being as relatively new as they are, the information will NOT be as detailed as what was contained in the Battle Frontier links. Just give it some time, and if you find something good that relates to Tower strategy, please tell me about it!
- All SPP forum rules apply. Some things I’d like to stress, though…
a. No foul language. I want to keep this organization respectable.
b. When you post, MAKE SENSE. Be clear with what you are trying to say.
c. No SPAM-ing, please. I will report you.
d. Don't double-post, huh? Be smart. Use the "Edit" button. Accidents are fine - just delete the extras when you have a chance.
- Be detailed! Don’t just say “I love the Dome!!!”, give us what Pokémon you used, movesets, battle sequences, how many rounds you got through before getting haxed to death, etc. You don’t have to give all this information every single time, but give us something to go on.
- PLEASE respect you other Summit colleagues. Odds are, they might be learning, too. Even more experienced members.
- This is more of a request than a rule. If you know anyone on the Forums who's been trying to get somewhere in the Tower or the Frontier, invite them!
- Have fun! This is supposed to be a serious discussion thread, but please don’t take yourselves too seriously. We are all human, after all.

Well, at the time I added this, Serebii still hadn't changed the link to the pokedex at the top of the forum. Yay for being one step ahead of the main admin! (No offense! )
As with the link for the Battle Frontier pokemon page, this page tells about EVERY SINGLE POKEMON you'll face in the D/P Battle tower.
Volteon's Breeding Guide!
Leave it to Volteon to make something as in-depth and detailed as this! Check it out!
D/P breeding guide
Nice, basic guide for fourth generation breeding.
D/P Strategy guide
The people at Smogon are no slouches. They've brought together analyses on how to use most of the pokemon in the 4th generation.
Smogon Tier List
Well, this is the tentative beginning of the 4th generation tier list. So far, it only shows the OU and Uber tiers, so it would be best to wait for the site to get back up before deciding that something is 100% in one tier or another.
(the Summit is busy adding more links to help you in your efforts to beat the Tower! Please have patience. o.o)
These are other sites that are incredibly helpful. They're not Serebii, but they're still great!
This site is like a bizarre, mirror-image of Serebii, only with more detail. This site also has the same kinds of tools, but there are a few more.
MetalKid's Gaming Resources
Go here if you need to calculate anything about the third generation games. There are numerous calculators to map out IVs, EVs, and a lot more. A lot of the data still applies to the 4th generation, as well.
Well, this site is mainly for competitive movesets and strategies. It's still very good for a lot of in-game stuff, and it would be a good idea to look here since the Wi-Fi is going to play a large part of D/P.
By request, here are some banners for the club. More will be added...
^ This one was the first official-looking banner to line the top of the front page of the Summit.
^ This was an updated version once I got a little more skilled at doing this sort of thing.

Effects: (If you want something extra, just ask. If we can do it, we will, otherwise, we won't (duh).)
Well, until we have an artist for these new things, I'll handle the requests, personally! So, go ahead and PM me for any of these things.
Keep checking back for updates/upgrades! More items may be added…
PsiUmbreon, for answering some of my questions and pointing me in the right direction.
Powerful_blaziken88 posted a wonderful thread that originally brought many of these members together for the first time, and that thread also helped me obtain the Battle Frontier symbols I have now.
All club banners and images are from me (unless otherwise noted).
This is it - the best Pokemon Emerald Battle Frontier reference section ANYWHERE. It was removed from the Summit's first page to make room to focus on D/P, but only a complete idiot would lose the information (among other things) contained there. Well, I'm certainly not a COMPLETE idiot. Here you go! If you need advice on ANYTHING about the Emerald BF, click here.
