    There's really not a whole lot of good choice when it comes to HG/SS. You could go with a Machamp, you can always trade for that Machop in the Goldenrod Market. A Rock or Ground Type could help as well

    1) In Soul Silver, how do I see the number of pokemon encounters I have had? I tried scrolling down on the back on my trainer card like everyone says to do but it isn't working like it does in my White version.
    2) While playing Soul Silver, the upper left section of my screen starts to graphically glitch and the same section becomes fuzzy as I move. Is it the game or the DS? Should I move the game to my other DS? Could it cause problems for my game, or is it not something to worry about?

    Sorry I know I have posted this elsewhere too I am just trying to figure this out. Thanks

    1) Soul Silver and White are two completely different games, you're not going to find the same information in both.
    2) If it's only in Soul Silver then it's not the DS.

    Is there an order in which you're supposed to battle the Kanto gym leaders? I'd assumed you were supposed to fight the lowest leveled ones first, but that would made Janine first, which is weird since there's at least 2 other gyms between Vermillion & Fuchisa.

    Ampharos learns Signal Beam at level 42, that should help with Will. Also, Gligar learns X-Scissor at 42 (or you can teach it via TM).

    And in general I'd advice having at least one pokemon around 48-50, or the battle with Lance will be quite difficult. You might need more then one, but it depends on how you battle- I know I prefer everyone to be the same level.

    Alright for the feasonable leveling up isn't it possible to get rematches with the gymleaders? I think I read that somewhere.

    Does anyone have a system for the voltorb card flip game? I've got one, but it's not exactly fool proof and with my luck I guess wrong most of the time here's what I got so far.

    1: Flip over any line that has no voltorbs in it.

    2: If the number of points and voltorbs equals 5 there's nothing to find and I mark them to not open them.

    3: Once finding a x2 or x3 I check the crossing line to see if the rest can be filled in with voltorbs and ones. If so I mark them off.

    You can battle them in whichever order you please. Most people battle them as they get to them.

    Does anyone know if I need to have met any sort of requirement before I can take Arceus to the ruins of Alph to unlock those other ruins? My friend has one that I'm going to borrow but I only have four gym badges at the minute. :?

    If i remember rightly, I used to go through and just mark (with the 1,2 and voltorb symbol) everything out and then you can work out where the voltorbs will definitely be and where you have gaps and stuff. It's a lot easier than just diving straight in but you can still go for the rows with no voltorbs in to start off with, so yeah it's pretty much what you've said there. I don't think there's any easier way around it apart from those calculators that work it out for you but... that's cheating. :PPP

    I recall that I was able to go to the Sinjoh Ruins using Arceus basically as soon as I had access to the Ruins of Alph. No prerequisites at all (except, of course, having Arceus with me). (Just want to note that this event is the only way to get a Griseous Orb in HGSS [EDIT: But you must choose Giratina].)

    Hi hi. About to face blue, was wondering if this team is enough to beat him.

    Luxray, level 54.
    Heracross, level 51
    Starmie, level 53
    Latios, level 55
    Absol, level 54
    Mamoswine, level 60.

    I would post moves, but that would take some time, and i dont got that. ;;

    -Flip over all squares in a row with 0 voltorbs
    -Use the memo to mark the rows/columns were there's only 1 type of number or a voltorb
    -Look for intersections of 2 high point, low voltorb row/columns- these are likely 2s or 3s (although sometimes they aren't). If there's 2 columns and 2 rows with 1 voltorb, I'll usually flip their 4 intersection points.
    -Look over the memo to see if any changes are necessary (ongoing)

    Unfortunately, there's a lot of guessing involved, which can't really be strategized. You also need to make sure you know what numbers are left in a row after some are removed.

    You should be fine, if you just exploit the weaknesses of his pokemon.

    I see, but how can you possibly know where everything is? Is there a system to it?

    I'm trying the whole EV training thing for the first time. I'm going to start off training in Attack. I gave the Pokemon 10 Proteins. It's level 1 with adamant nature so no EVs gained or anything.

    So now it has 100 EVs in attack, and only needs 152 more, right?

    So if I give the Pokemon a Power Bracer, and beat a Golden that gives 1 EV in attack, it would gain +4 EVs in attack? Then if I beat a Seaking, it would gain +6? So if I battled nothing but Goldeens, I would need to battle 38 times? Then if I battle a Seaking, I add 6 instead of 4?

    I'm totally new to this so I'm not 100% sure.

    Fighting a Goldeen with a Power Bracer attached would give you 5 EVs per fight (1+4). 152/5 = 30.4, so 31 Goldeens would need to be killed.
    Fighting a Seaking with a Power Bracer attached would give you 6 EVs per fight (2+4). 152/6 = 25.3(repeating), so 26 Seakings would need to be killed.
    If you have pkrs, you'll be getting 10 EVs for Goldeens and 12 EVs for Seakings because pkrs doubles EV gains in battles.

    Ahh ok, thanks for the fast response.

    I went to the trade forum and asked for Pokerus. That would definitely help.

    Anyone know a good place to train my Sunflora and Rhyhorn before taking on Clair? I want to get both up to about Lvl 40.

    I'm gonna try to trade over a Lucky Egg from other games as well.

    The high point low chance ones many times I've tried that in the voltorb gameand they'd end up having a voltorb exactly there. That just stinks.

    You should do trainer rematches. Rematch fishermen for Sunflora and find a trainer to keep re-battling with Rhyhorn.
