I left Victory Road at long last and I used Waterfall to climb a waterfall outside. I entered the Pokemon League building next and spotted my rival Claus. I fought and thrashed him, then I healed my darlings and headed back to Victory Road to level grind. An hour later, I returned to the Pokemon League building and I dashed to Aaron's chamber. I battled against Aaron inside and he used Dustox and I slayed it with Empoleon's Drill Peck. Aaron used his Drapion afterwards and my Rampardos's Earthquake defeated it. I used Staraptor's Fly to beat Heracross and then Luxray's Discharge to slay Vespiquen. Finally, I defeated Aaron's Beautifly with Rapidash's Fire Blast and after Elite Four Aaron lost, I saved my game.

Pal Parked some Pokemon over from Emerald today. I sent over some legendaries plus a Porygon2 and a Snubbull. After I finished catching the Pokemon at the Pal Park, I flew to Solaceon Town to breed my Porygon2. I quickly got a Porygon egg and hatched it after riding my bike a lot. While I was working on hatching it, I did some more training with my Dragonair and Doduo. My Doduo evolved after gaining a few more levels, so I then swapped it out for Snubbull and continued training. I stopped training for the day when Snubbull evolved into Granbull and Dragonair reached level 35.

I took a lift and challenged Bertha next. I thrashed her Quagsire with Roserade's Giga Drain, then I beat Sudowoodo with Petal Dance. I switched to Empoleon afterwards and I beat Bertha's Hippowdon and Golem with Surf, then Whiscash with Roserade's Giga Drain. I visited Flint's room and fought him next. I slayed his Rapidash and Infernape with Empoleon's Surf, then Flint's Lopunny with Staraptor's Close Combat. Flint then used his Drifblim which my Rampardos easily thrashed with a Stone Edge attack. All that remained left was Flint's Steelix, which my Rampardos demolished with an Earthquake attack. After finishing off Elite Four Flint, I healed some of my Pokemon with items and then I saved the game next.
12th May 2015, 5:10 AM
Trained Dragonair some more today along with a couple other Pokemon. First, I trained it alongside my Cacnea against the Elite Four. Cacnea evolved into Cacturne just after I defeated Cynthia, so once the Hall of Fame and credits were done I swapped it out for my Slowpoke. I then flew to the Fight Area and fought some trainers on the nearby routes until Slowpoke had grown a few levels. Once that was done, I returned to the Pokemon League for more Elite Four training. After beating the E4 again, Slowpoke had evolved and Dragonair had reached level 42.
12th May 2015, 6:17 AM
I fought Lucian next and thrashed his Mr. Mime, Alakazam, and Girafarig with Luxray's Crunch, then his Medicham with Empoleon's Drill Peck. I beat Lucian's Bronzong with Rapidash's Flamethrower, then I visited Cynthia's room. I defeated her Spiritomb with Rampardos, then I beat Cynthia's Garchomp with Empoleon's Ice Beam attacks. I emasculated her Lucario with Rapidash's Fire Blast and then I used Roserade's Giga Drain attacks to slay Milotic. I fought Gastrodon afterwards and Roserade's Petal Dance creamed it, then all that remained was her Roserade, which Staraptor thrashed with a Fly attack. After I had dethroned Sinnoh's Champion, Prof. Rowan appeared and Cynthia registered me in the Hall of Fame.

Tonight, I flew to the Pal Park in order to catch some Pokemon I sent over from LeafGreen. I participated in the catching show and caught Natu, Dunsparce, Yanma, Qwilfish, Shellder, and Makuhita, all Pokemon I needed for my Pokedex. After that, I returned to Solaceon to breed my Salamence since I needed a Bagon. Once I had my egg, I replaced my Day Care Pokemon with my Beldum and Kabuto so that they could gain experience while I trained other Pokemon.
Next, I used a Water Stone on the Shellder I transferred to get Cloyster. Then, I put my new Makuhita in my party and started training it with Dragonair. After a few trainer battles, Makuhita evolved into Hariyama. I continued training just Dragonair after that, eventually getting it to level 46. I then kept playing until my Bagon hatched.

So,today I decided to win the last remaining Cool Contest ribbon-Master Rank ribbon for my Skarmory.The Visual Competition itself wasn't overly challenging as I had enough Accessories that fit the theme(The Created).However,the next round,Dance Competition,proved to be just as difficult as it is in every Super Contest.The Appeal Round was just a walk in the park,though,thanks to Skarmory's combination of Swift and Agility.Finally,I managed to win the Master Rank ribbon and received the Cool Cup from Mr.Goods in Hearthome.
13th May 2015, 11:45 PM
Did some trading with my SoulSilver version yesterday. I traded over the remaining Kanto and Johto legendaries I needed for my Pearl. After that, I fought some more trainers to level up Dragonair and Bagon too. I eventually got Bagon up high enough to evolve into Shelgon. When that happened, I trained Dragonair by itself for a little while until it reached level 50. At that point, I used Rare Candies on it until I finally got my Dragonite. Then, I began training my Yanma.
14th May 2015, 8:21 PM
After the game credits, I awoke in Twinleaf Town and went to Lake Valor and Lake Acuity to catch Uxie and Azelf. I got the National Dex in Sandgem Town next after meeting Professor Oak, then I visited Route 214 and I reached Sendoff Spring. I then used Rock Climb and I arrived at a lake and I entered Turnback Cave. Once inside, I had to dash around through the creepy rooms and pass several rock formations. As I marched, I battled wild Pokemon and caught a Bronzong and Haunter, then I arrived at a room with a large pillar. I soon passed two more pillars after I sprinted around and I arrived at the last room of Turnback Cave and I saw Giratina there. I battled and caught Giratina in a Dusk Ball and saved my game.
14th May 2015, 11:07 PM
I transferred over some more Pokemon yesterday, this time from Emerald. I went to the Pal Park again and caught Latios, Latias, Hitmontop, Plusle, Corphish, and Carvanha. Now that I have the Latis, I have every legendary Pokemon registered in my Pokedex.
After that, I went back to training. I continued levelling up my Yanma and started levelling up my Teddiursa too. Yanma eventually learned AncientPower and evolved into Yanmega. I then began training my Natu alongside Teddiursa, who evolved after only a few more battles after that. Then, I just trained Natu by itself until it evolved.
Now, my Pokedex is at something like 466 owned.
15th May 2015, 1:28 AM
I left Turnback Cave and flew to Snowpoint City and sailed to the Fight Area. I met Buck and saw Claus, then I snatched a Super Rod from a dude. I visited the Battle Park next and got the Point Card and I ran into Palmer. I visited the Battle Tower, then I hurried to Route 225 next and caught a wild Fearow and Banette and I slayed some trainers as well while I pranced past the rugged terrain. Next I fished at a lake and I caught a wild Poliwag and I picked up a Dubious Disc and Lax Incense and picked Tamato and Kelpsy Berries as well. I battled against a few more trainers and I used Rock Climb and found a Dawn Stone on the mountain. I continued dashing east and soon reached the Survival Area and rested there.
15th May 2015, 1:35 PM
Returned to Solaceon Town last night. I went over to the Day Care, where I took back my Beldum and Kabuto and left my Slakoth and Aron. Then, I worked on evolving Beldum & Kabuto by doing trainer battles. Beldum became a Metang pretty quickly. Kabuto needed to grow another 10 levels to evolve, which didn't take as long as I thought it would. Once I had Kabutops, I continued training Metang on its own. I trained it to level 41 or so normally, then used some Rare Candies until it evolved into Metagross.
After that, I used Pal Park again and got six new Pokemon from Emerald: Smoochum, Farfetch'd, Zangoose, Seviper, Illumise, and Spoink. I don't think I will have to transfer or trade for any more Pokemon now. I can get the remaining Pokemon I need for my Pokedex by breeding and/or levelling up Pokemon I already have.
15th May 2015, 9:54 PM
I left the Survival Area after healing my team and ran to Route 226. I fought some trainers in the hills, then some Swimmers upon Surfing and arrived at Route 227. I ran north next and caught a Camerupt and Rhydon and I saw Claus and Crasher Wake nearby. I then sprinted north along the falling ash and bumped into Buck again. After chatting, I arrived at the higher area of the path and I used Rock Climb and picked up several items and beat several other trainers as I dashed close to Stark Mountain's peak. I then entered the cavern and pushed boulders with Luxray's Strength. I soon spotted Claus again and I entered a bigger cavern and that arrogant child Buck joined me since he wanted to find the Magma Stone.
16th May 2015, 2:05 PM
Evolved a few Pokemon last night. First, I got my Corphish to evolve, which was pretty simple since it only needed to level up once. After that, I turned my attention to my Omanyte and Snorunt. The two of them needed to level up quite a lot to reach their evolution levels (actually, quite a few of the Pokemon I have left to train evolve at relatively high levels...). Fortunately, I had transferred over a Lucky Egg from Emerald yesterday, which made things a little easier. I still had to do quite a lot of battling before they evolved, though. Once I had my Omastar and Glalie, I purchased some more healing items at the nearest mart and then saved.

So Buck and I dashed through Stark Mountain and we slayed trainers in tag battles. Soon Buck took the Magma Stone and I went back to the Survival Area. Buck returned to Stark Mountain to take back the Magma Stone and I went back to Stark Mountain as well. I then saw Heatran in a cave and caught it in a Timer Ball. Afterwards, I left Stark Mountain and I dashed south and I arrived at Route 228's gatehouse next. I sashayed through the desert and the constant sandstorm and I battled several trainers there. I arrived at the tall grass and I caught a wild Hippowdon, Cacturne, and Dugtrio as well for my collection, and after beating some other trainers nearby, I found a Protector and Shed Shell in the sand.

Back at the Day Care, I took my Aron back and deposited my Trapinch there in its place. I then gave my Lucky Egg to Aron to hold and started fighting trainers. I did most of my training just north of the Fight Area and managed to get Aron to the Aggron stage fairly quickly. After that, I continued training in the same area, this time with my Spheal. I won many more battles and eventually got Spheal to its final stage.
Later on, I returned to the Day Care to leave my Anorith there. I took back my Slakoth and decided to train it with my Baltoy. I trained the two of them against the Elite Four, where I switched Slakoth in and out against every Pokemon while holding the Lucky Egg. Baltoy had one of my Exp. Shares to gain experience along the way. When I entered the Hall of Fame again, both of them were fully evolved.
17th May 2015, 9:42 PM
I continued my journey through Route 228 and I fought some more trainers nearby for the experience and next I finally arrived at Route 229. I battled even more scattered trainers, then I captured a wild Weepinbell, Gloom, Pineco, and Scyther as I sprinted through the thick grass. I dashed through more thick grass afterwards and I used Cut and picked up the Reaper Cloth, then I snatched a Nugget from an old man. After exploring all of Route 229's grass, I finally arrived at the Resort Area. I visited a couple of houses and the Ribbon Syndicate, then I visited the local Pokemon Center. I flew back to Twinleaf Town next. Since I've basically completed everything in Diamond now, I think I'll play Platinum version next.
18th May 2015, 9:09 AM
I took my Anorith and Trapinch out of the Day Care temporarily and had the Day Care raise my Hitmontop and Ditto in their place. I eventually got a Tyrogue egg and then swapped out my Pokemon at the Day Care, putting Anorith & Trapinch back in. Then, I started working on hatching my Tyrogue. While I was hatching the egg, I also trained my Spoink and got it to evolve after a few battles. Soon after that, my egg hatched. I then went over to the department store in Veilstone to purchase some Iron, which I then used on my Tyrogue. After rematching several more trainers, Tyrogue evolved into Hitmonchan.
18th May 2015, 9:45 PM
Now on Platinum, I started a new game and chose to play as the girl and named my rival Barry. Once in my room, I saw Barry and then he left and I went downstairs and spoke with my mom. I stepped out and walked through snowy patches, and after visiting Barry's house, I walked to Route 201. Barry soon caught up with me there and he wanted us to run across the grass to Sandgem Town to get Pokemon from Professor Rowan. Rowan showed up before that though and he chatted with us, then his assistant Lucas showed up and I chose Chimchar as my Starter Pokemon and Barry chose Piplup. After Rowan and Lucas returned to Sandgem Town, Barry challenged me and I thrashed his Piplup mercilessly.
18th May 2015, 10:39 PM
Played Platinum a bit today. There is one certain thing I have decided to do next on this game. And that is to catch all the various forms of Unown (thanks Aquarelle for giving me the idea). I have never caught all of the Unown forms on any game before, so this will be the first time I'm doing this. Started today by doing some preparations first, I did some cleaning and reorganizing in my boxes to make room. Noticed that there were many "holes" in my boxes, I guess that must be from all the Pokemon I have sent forward to 5th generation. Managed to get two boxes empty at least, which is what I wanted.
Withdrew a random Weavile and taught it False Swipe by TM, won't have to worry about losing the TM since it can be rebought infinitely. With that done, I went to the Solaceon Ruins. I caught several Unown letters there, using Weavile to swipe them down to low HP before catching them. Caught 18 different Unown in total, which I felt was enough for today. Will continue tomorrow with catching the rest.

So I headed back to Twinleaf Town after slaying Barry and spoke to my mom. She wanted me to thank Professor Rowan in Sandgem Town and she gave me the Running Shoes. I soon dashed back to Route 201 next and saw Barry, who wanted me to go with him to Lake Verity to see a Legendary Pokemon. Once there, we saw Cyrus hanging around and then I ran through Route 201. I trained Chimchar against wild Pokemon, then I arrived in Sandgem Town. Lucas escorted me to Professor Rowan's lab and I spoke to Professor Rowan and I got the Pokedex from him. Afterwards, I headed back outside and got the Return TM, then Lucas showed me places of interest around Sandgem Town and I saved in the Poke Mart.
19th May 2015, 1:23 PM
Went back to the Day Care yet again. I got my Trapinch back and dropped my Lileep off. I then gave Trapinch my Lucky Egg and level grinded it until it became a Flygon. After that, I got my Anorith out of the Day Care and started training it with my Carvanha. Evolved Carvanha pretty quickly since it only needed to level up once, then got Armaldo after several more battles.
At that point, I only needed two more Pokemon in order to complete my Pokedex. First, I had to evolve my Smoochum into Jynx, which only took a few more battles since I'd given it quite a few Rare Candies before Pal Parking it. Then, I just needed to evolve my Lileep. I went to the Day Care one final time and got it back, then trained it up a couple levels. I didn't feel like training it after that, since I just wanted to finish, so I used some Rare Candies until it became a Cradily.
With Lileep evolved, I had every single Pokemon recorded as owned in my Pearl's Pokedex! I went over to the Valor Lakefront and talked to the game developer guy to get the diploma.
Glad I'm done!

So I left Sandgem Town next and I dashed back to Twinleaf Town quickly and got the Journal key item from my mom, then I got the Parcel from Barry's momma and I headed back to Route 201 and Sandgem Town. Next I headed north towards Route 202 and I soon spotted Lucas there. He quickly taught me how to capture wild Pokemon, then he gave me some Poke Balls. I caught a wild Starly and Shinx in the tall grass and I fought several trainers as well. I sashayed into Jubilife City next and caught up with Lucas again and we saw Looker hiding behind a lamp post nearby. He introduced himself and handed me the Vs. Recorder. I visited the Trainer's School next and gave Barry his Parcel and he gave me a Town Map.

YOU are awesome for giving me the idea in first place.

The very last one I needed was A, but I found one rather quickly after finding the other two. The first became the last, which is cool. Once I had all of them, I left the Solaceon Ruins and headed to Veilstone City. Went down to Route 214 and entered the Ruins Maniac's Cave, which now had been transformed into the Ruins Maniac's Tunnel and the Hippopotas population there had increased drastically. This Tunnel is one of the very few areas in the games which I have never been to before as I never bothered with catching all the Unown in D/P/P prior to today.
I walked across it and met the Ruin Maniac himself at the end, he was surprised that he had been able to dig out such a long tunnel. There I also found the entrance to the final part of the Solaceon Ruins. I caught the ! and ? Unown there, and with that, I had all 28 Unown forms/letters/whatever. Exited and found myself on the upper part of the Ruins exterior, which had an item that have been picking at my curiousity since 2009 as I have never been able to get here before, and because of that, the item was never picked up. But now I could get it, and it turned out to be a... Rare Candy. Well, I hadn't expected much and I suppose this is better than nothing. Left the place as I am done with the Unown here, though I will go back and catch them in Gen 3 as well, will get on to that later this week. Here on Platinum, it is back to the Battle Factory for now.

I battled two School Kids in the Trainer's School next, then I stepped outside and visited the local PC to heal my team. I explored more of Jubilife City and answered the quiz questions from three Clowns and got Coupons 1, 2, and 3 and exchanged them for a Poketch, then I snatched a Quick Claw from someone in a building and walked west towards Route 218's gatehouse. I got the Old Rod from some Fisherman and then I headed east towards Route 203. I saw Barry on the path and we fought. I slayed is Starly with Shinx and his Piplup again with Chimchar. Once Barry was defeated, I dashed through the tall grass and defeated several trainers and caught a Bidoof and Abra and trained my team for 15 minutes.
