    Default Official Help Thread (Upgraded - READ FIRST POST BEFORE YOU POST)

    The other one was quite long and spammy, so I decided to restart it.

    Before posting, make sure you check:

    The Site
    Walkthroughs for Diamond from GameFAQs
    Walkthroughs for Pearl from GameFAQs
    Or, this nice FAQ prepared by Volteon.

    Q1 - How do I get National Dex?
    A: You must see every Pokémon from Sinnoh Pokedex and beat Elite Four. Dialga/Palkia can be added in Pokedex reading a book in Celestic Town in Cynthia's house (Biggest house in city). Then all the other Pokémon can be seen battling with trainers in Sinnoh.
    After you accomplish those, go to Rowan's Lab and he'll give you National Dex with PokéRadar.
    ~~A link about where to find all Pokémon for National déx~~

    Q2 - How do I get to Route 224?
    A: Get National Dex and go through Victory Road's last room. An entrance someone was blocking is now free and after a quest with Marley and her Arcanine, you'll get to the route. You may need HMs to go there.

    Q3 - How do I get to Wi-Fi? Do I have to pay?
    You need broadband internet and Nintendo's USB connector or a wireless router. Everything is well explained here.

    Q4 - I battled with 12 Gastly holding Power Lens and it just got +2 Special Attack! What's wrong? Shouldn't it get +15?

    A: No. The Pokémon doesn't get immediate EVs during a level up. EVs are gradually considered and they'll all be added when a Pokémon reaches level 100. Even if it's in Wi-Fi.

    Q5 - How do I chain for shinies?
    A very well explained guide even with videos is here
    Remember the random encounter for shiny Pokémon is 1/8192. With PokeRadar, chaining to get a shiny is easier, but unfortunately you can't chain for overworld Pokémon, like Drifloon, Rotom, legendaries overall or Pokémon found in surf/fish areas.

    Q6 - How do I soft reset?
    Hold L+R+Start+Select. Soft resetting makes your battery live longer and works faster when compared with just Turning off/on.

    Q7 - How can I get Feebas and how can I evolve it?
    A: Feebas is probably the rarest Pokémon found in wild. They are found in Mt.Coronet. Fishing with Old Rod will give you higher chances to find it faster because all this Rod gets is Magikarp and Feebas.
    To evolve Feebas is reccomended you save before feeding Feebas Poffins. Then give it Poffins made by Ganlon or Pamtre berries. Ganlon berries can be found in 3D games (Colosseum, XD, PBR) and Pamtre can be found in Amity Square random encounter.
    There's this video in YouTube that will help you.

    Q8 - Do I need Wi-Fi to go to Sinnoh's Underground?
    A: No. DS will simply start it's wireless function, you won't need Wi-Fi or someone next to you to go Underground.
    You can go there by yourself to dig for fossils and create your secret base.

    Q9 - I tried to release an Azumarril but it returned!? Is my game glitched?
    A: It's not glitched. When a Pokémon knows an HM that no other Pokémon has in your box and you release it, the Pokémon will return. Just teach the HM it knows to another Pokémon and it should be fine.

    Q10 - I deposited a Pokémon in GTS and after a few months I went check GTS and it disappeared!?
    A: It is normal. It is explained in Pokémon Diamond/Pearl's guide that comes with your game that a Pokémon can disapear from GTS.

    Q11 - Where can I find Move Relearner, Nickname rater and Move deleter?
    A: Relearner is in Pastoria City, in a house near the lake.
    Nickname rater is an oldman in Eterna city in building next to the market.
    Move deleter is in Canalave Town in a house below Pokémon market.

    Q12 - Where can I find <insert TM here>?
    A: Check this. There's a complete list there.

    Q13 - I heared Pokémon that requires trading can evolve without trading with someone, is that true?
    A: Yes. more info in this thread.

    Q14 - How can I do the cloning glitch in DP's GTS? Is it safe?
    Check this thread for it. And yes, you must not worry about your game file and must not pay attention to those who said file got corrupted. it's 100% safe.

    Please don't post repeatedly, you'll get help eventually. >_>;
    Also, please don't post "thank you" posts. These are spammy. Edit your original post with the thanks. ^^;
    Also, don't post questions that have been answered by the FAQ. You will be infracted

    Have... fun..

    With the other thread getting closed, I lost about 3 or 4 ranks xD Didn't know I posted there that much...

    anyways, usually one IV more means 1 point more - in level 100.

    IVs are important to reach the well known "magic numbers" with the least investment of EVs. So if you're into competitive battling, these little points added can save you.

    Only male Pokemon can pass down moves.
    A Snorlax learns Selfdestruct from a Move Tutor in XD. Like a Salamence with the MT move Drace Meteor or any other MT attack, it won't be passed to the babies. So make sure the Snorlax you are teaching Selfdestruct to is the one you want to use.

    Have something faster than Garchomp like Alakazam, Sceptile, Gengar, etc.
    Or have one of your pokemon know sucker punch...

    a pokemon with extremespeed? like arcanine, or a fast pokemon like gengar or staraptor holding choice scarf.

    Well, yes, it's pretty good, as Castform is mainly a Special Attacker (Weather Ball, Thunderbolt, Shadow Ball)

    When you get EXP, you get EV, so basically, yes.

    No, only Selfdestruct from XD
    (Otherwise, people would say Explosion instead of Selfdestruction ;D)

    Abomasnow?
    Send Abomasnow against anything and you're likely to nullify any Focus Sash you may see.

    Hey, here's a question I haven't got an answer to yet. I've checked guides, no one seems to know. Maybe you all do...

    What the heck is up with the sad guy in the Survival Area, the one you have to use Rock Climb on Route 226 to get to? ;w; I can't figure him out.

    Does anyone know if Counter or Mirror Coat works when you have a Substitute up? Ive never used that combonation of moves before so I was wondering if someone could clear that up for me.

    I don't think anything special goes on there. I was so disappointed...I thought maybe he'd give me something for all the Mushrooms I'd collected! But alas! they're useless.

    No, i've just checked and Counter/Mirror Coat fails whilst a Substitute is taking the blows.

    .. And I was wondering why I couldn't find the Help Thread in my subscriptions, I hadn't realized it was remade xD

    I have a question that can hopefully be answered in time as I am training it now, but is there a higher leveled trainer in the game that would be good for training my Ninjask on?
    It is nearly done, at Lv. 88, but everything worth battling that I come across seems to resist it's only attack - Bug Bite :P
    I was going to try fighting the Cacturne on route 228, but they keep getting me with Sucker Punch..
    So yeah, are there any good trainers for a bug to battle, like those that have an abundance of Psychic or Dark Pokémon? :O
    (outside of the Elite 4)

    Edit to the below posts -
    @ Volteon: The Alakazam trainer sounds like a nice target, I guess i've got to do Heatran before they reach that level though..
    *sets off to Stark Mt.*

    @ STUD: There's a trainer with a Chansey on Route 228, but she had an Ambipom and a Rapidash to go with it:/
    I wouldn't mind battling her again, but I can't OHKO the Rapidash with BB, and Ambipom is darn annoying :O

    Thanks both of you for your suggestions ~
