Yeah, it does, because it has no other choice.

3. Ok I have a question about berry growing.

I've read gamefaqs berry guide and I am slightly confused about the process. Currently I am growing custap and rowap berry which normally take 24 hours per stage for a total according to serebii 96 hours.

I am using growth mulch so it should be halved to 48 hours to fully grow. Currently the berries are in stage 3 when you see the bud. I am slightly confused as I've planted these berries Saturday around 6-8pm and it is currently near 1 pm Monday. Now by my calculations, at least 36 hours minimum should pass so shouldn't it be in stage 4 where it is in bloom? Does being as a seed counts as an extra stage (doing math by serebii calculation 96 hours / 24 hours per stage = 4 stages it goes through)? If so does stage 1 counts without the aid of growth mulch?

Sorry to ask so many questions at once but the only logical theory I can see if it counts stage 1 during growth process and it isn't halved by growth mulch. So by normal means it should take 120 hours to grow rowap or custap berry without mulch. I guess I am asking for verification.

edited: Ok thanks so much razor_fire, I must've misread it somewhere cause it was never that specific to begin with. That makes so much sense now, again thanks.

Growth Mulch does not cut the growth time to half the time needed. It reduces the growth time by 25% (1/4)

96 : 4 = 72

Also, 72 hours needed for it to be fully grown.

What is a "Black Friday"?
Though I kinda guess so... I guess you'll have to check yourself.

Ahh... So that unlocks the Fateful Encounter requirement.

Well, does the Platinum Arceus say "Had a Fateful Encounter at level 80 at Hall of Origin"?

That depends on the store. Ask some of the clerks there if they are offering discounts.

8. how do I evolve kirlia into A gallade & what type pokemon is gliscor?

Using the Dawn Stone on a male Kirlia will make it evolve into a Gallade.
Gligar and Gliscor are both Ground and Flying.

10. how many items can you get for your villa and are there any requirements?

11. Since I didn't know where else to ask it, I decided to ask it here.

Can the 4th Gen IV Calculator calculate the EVs a Pokemon has gained? If not, there should be some way to do so. So that way a person can make sure whether or not there is a mistake in the manual calculation.

For example, I have a Mothim I recently evolved from a Burmy, but I do not know it's EVs. It is a Serious nature (don't even start on about neutral natures), and it is now Lv.21. However, after trying the IV Calculator, it didn't help much. Which would mean I would have to go through the EV numbers one at a time in order to find the amount it actually has based on that.

Kinda annoying really.

You can also Remove EVs by feeding it certain berries, Which are Pomeg Berry to Tamato Berry in the Berry Dex.

After you feed it enough, you get 0EVs

Sure just remember that only Wild Steelix hold Metal Coat on the island.

Other Pokemon, exluding Iron Island Pokemon, you can find that hold Metal Coat in the wild include: Magnemite, Magneton, Bronzor, Bronzong (Pt.)

Okay,so this is supposed to be an easy gym,but I seem to have nothing but issues with it. The cobble badge in Platinum!

I read a walkthrough that stated if I lvl up my Staraptor to level 34,it'll know all the moves necessary to completely own this gym. One thing doesn't add up though,won't it not obey me if it goes past level 30? The move Close-Combat is supposedly really effective against her Lucario.

Also in my team,I have Kadabra(which I only use against Machoke),Prinplup,Probopass,Bronzor,I've also tried my Haunter to mess her up status-wise.

So I'm stumped,what should I do?

second question: Which is more effective,mind plate or odd incense?
