    Sorry, I don't think I was very clear. What my question is is Do fake DS games exist and how can you spot if one is fake or not?

    Absolutely they exist, it'll be almost impossible to tell from pictures though. Especially because there's a good chance someone selling a fake wont use a real picture of the cart you're getting. They typically have cheap labels.

    Thank you very much for your help. I may see if I can get it from a game store then as that seems like a much more reliable way to go.

    In the Wi-Fi Battle Tower, can you rank up by facing the previous room you just lost to, or do you have to log into Wi-Fi and pick a different room to rank up? I'm asking because there seems to be a one use limit for each of the rooms.

    Hi everyone! I'm new here so please forgive me if this should be posted elsewhere in the forum.

    As the title of my thread suggests, I'm trying to breed my Male Dratini on Pokemon Platinum. I got it on Soulsilver and transferred it across to Platinum as it's the main game that I use, and have always done my breeding on Platinum.

    Like i said, Dratini is male and knows extreme speed which is half the battle, right?

    I want a Dratini to have an Adamant nature for when I EV train it, so I put a Ditto (Adamant) holding an ever stone along with my Dratini (Calm) into the day care centre. I received a few eggs, and when they hatched, I found that none of them learned extreme speed yet they all came out with Adamant nature.

    Where am I going wrong with this??? Does my Dratini have to be Dragonite before it can pass a move on, or is Dratini capable?? From what I've read, I assumed i'm not doing anything wrong??

    I appreciate and look forward to your replies!:-)

    UPDATE: I've done a little further reading, and it appears that this can only be done on heart gold/soulsilver? Typical! Will have to trade back to silver. Nevermind!

    Hey guys, I've been playing Platinum and just got up to the Valley Windworks and Drifloon WILL NOT APPEAR! I've looked it up everywhere and I've defeated Team Galactic, changed the time to day and even fast-forwarded to the the next Friday and he just won't appear. What am I doing wrong?

    If you changed the date, then that's probably why it won't appear. I'm pretty sure the game detects changes to the clock and the penalty is that Drifloon won't appear until the next Friday.

    You see I thought it might be that but in HG, I manipulated the hell out of the clock to set up gym leader rematches to train my Pokemon and it worked! In addition on B2, a while ago, I manipulated the clock so I could get it to be Winter (so I could catch Cubchoo) and that worked as well. Is this limitation exclusive to DPP?

    ETA: I tried to find Drifloon a couple of times before I changed the DS time but on both occasions, it didn't work. If it helps, I beat Team Galactic today and did it well after the daytime.

    The effect of time changes were changed with HG/SS, you could set the clock to 11:59 and when the day rolled over everything would work normally. In D/P/P you need to wait 24 hours after changing the time for any time based events to work again. Make sure you save after your time change, then wait 24 hours and everything will be normal again.

    You cannot request a Pokémon on the GTS that you haven't encountered in-game. Wi-Fi battles don't count.

    Trading with other players does not have this restriction. As long as the other player has the Pokémon you want, and willing to trade it, there is nothing in the games preventing you after the first gym.

    We're not keen on having people trying to arrange Trades in the Help thread.

    Given that Arceus in 4th Gen was given out in 2009 and 2010, there may be few legitmate Arceus available for trade.

    Testing at the current Moment, 4th gen GTS is still up.

    1. What's the Error code? This would help alot as it will say what is wrong with it.

    2. Are you connected to a WEP or open Wifi Network? If you don't know what type you are connected, don't worry to much. But If you are not connected to either a open or WEP wifi network, this is the cause of wifi failure.

    3. Have registered your Wifi settings on your DS?

    4. On the 3DS line and DSi Line have the ability to turn off wireless, You'll need to exit the game and turn it back on. 3DS & 3DS XL- Flick the switch on the right side, until the yellow light should turn on. DSi & DSi XL - Head to DSi settings, and then Wireless Communications on screen 1, then make sure it's on.

    Default Playing Platinum for the first time. What should I do in the beginning?

    Such as whatever was new and creative when Platinum was released in stores a few years back.

    What are some of the stuff I should fiddle around with in the game before plowing through the game?

    On the PC, in Ball Capsules, click on the ones that have the Pokémon Icons with them, you can then select Remove.

    If rhey're not there, they're removed.

    The WiFi Club, some new music and slightly different plot like Cyrus at Lake Verity, snow at Twinleaf Town, and some other stuff.

    For the most part, it's the same, and there aren't many new gimmicks other than the ones I staed above.

    Hi, I'm wondering if there are any Pokemon exclusive to Platinum that aren't already in Diamond and Pearl? Just Giratina?

    I tried searching for the word exclusive in the thread search but it didn't work (posts came up without the word at all, very confusing).
