So I've got Pokemon Sapphire & Leaf Green along with a DS Lite today.
And I have a problem; I inserted Sapphire into the GBA slot and I'm supposed to make Lotad appear on Route 203 (as stated in the Platinum guide book) and I keep moving in grassy areas and on water, but doesn't happen.
Do they appear in one specific spot? Or is it just a lie?
Actually, "Dual Slot" pokémon, such as Lotad on Route 203, won't appear until you Unlock Pal Park. To Unlock Pal park, you need to Get the national Dex and Beat the Elite 4, and Visit the building on Route 221.
I should point out that, switching DSes or chaining the clock, have been said prevent the "Dual Slot" Pokémon showing for a day. It will stop you using transferring Pokémon from the GBA games to the Pal Park.
Finally, "fake" GBA games won't be recognised by the DS games.
Using the exp. share on your Gallade will only give it exp. points, and will not affect stat growth adversely, since you have already maxed out its EVs. How many exp points it receives in comparison to the pokemon holding the exp. share depends on the game generation.
Check out Bulbapedia's page concerning experience-sharing items for more information. I cannot provide a link because I have less than 10 posts, but the page is called "Experience-affecting item".
Before I head to the 8th Gym, I have to deal with the Liftveil Team Galactic HQ place.
Just wondering what other good place there is to level up pokemon?
Sorry buddy I would've said Iron Island as it has a mega ton of pokemon and I'd also say catch a Yanma with compoundeyes from the safari zone then try to catch a chansey with a lucky egg.
