    Is there a possible way to make raikou and entie shiny after already letting them out of burned tower when neither are shiny? I've heard that if you defeat them and go beat the elite four they will return with different ivs and possibly be shiny. If that's the case then I've already caught raikou and if I release him and beat the elite four will he return also? Any answer to my shiny hunting dilemma will be extremely appreciated.

    If you defeat them before you beat the Elite Four for the first time, they will respawn. But since you have already caught Raikou, he will not respawn. Releasing him will just result in you not having a Raikou.

    Now, I am not sure exactly how this works, as I have never made my legendary dogs respawn after an E4 defeat. But my guess is that if you want them to be shiny, you will have to defeat the E4, wait until your game reloads, and find and encounter Entei. If he is not shiny, I am not sure if you can SR at this point to make him shiny, because I don't know if his shininess is determined before or after your game saves after defeating the E4. If it is determined before, you will have only the one chance to get a shiny. If it is determined after, you will be able to SR for it. If anyone knows anything about this, it would be very helpful.

    Your team is not resistant to dark, ghost and psychic attacks. You need a steel-type. Train a Steelix or a Skarmory.

    Please note the easiest way to get a Steelix is trading an Onix holding a metal coat between your own 4th gen games.

    ^ Wouldn't it just be easier for them to catch a Steelix in Cliff Cave?

    Anyhow, I was wondering if there is an "easiest" among the Battle Frontier challenges. I'm trying to earn enough BP for Fire Punch and Ice Punch for two Pokemon. That's 192 BP, two Fire Punches and one Ice Punch...and three BP per streak is just so horrendously slow...

    My Arcanine is definitely going to have

    Fire Fang/Flame Wheel
    Extremespeed
    Overheat
    ???

    Is the 5% more damage and chance of flinch worth the 95% accuracy of Fire Fang? & I need one last physical attack for coverage. Any suggestions?

    Honestly, my suggestion is that you scrap all of those moves and start over. Not only do you have two Fire moves, which isn't necessary, but you are mixing Physical and Special moves when you should focus on just one. Decide if you would rather have a Physical or Special Arcanine - I suggest Physical, since you want Extremespeed. So you should give Arcanine EVs in Attack and Speed, and your moveset should have only Physical moves. Flare Blitz is better than both Fire Fang and Flame Wheel, so I would use that and give it some PP Ups.

    I suggest

    Extremespeed
    Flare Blitz
    Will-O-Wisp/Toxic
    Thunder Fang/HP Grass/Morning Sun

    OR, if you want him to be annoying and shuffle your opponent's Pokemon,

    Rest
    Sleep Talk
    Flare Blitz
    Roar

    I appreciate it but this is for in game. And I already have a Jolly Growlithe with Intimidate and I don't feel like breeding. I decided to go with Flame Wheel and Crunch.

    Even for in-game, though, you don't need two fire moves, and Thunder Fang and Will-O-Wisp will both help you because Thunder Fang gives you type coverage and Will-O-Wisp cuts your opponent's attack by 30%, which could save you in tough situations.

    Im having a bit of trouble... I decided to reset my Soul Silver game to play through again, and Ive gone all the way through all 16 badges without doing any Safari zone tasks. I just did the first one, but its been several days (with me playing a good bit each day) and I have not received a call yet. I was told it would take 3 gameplay hours. Just looking for some help, thanks.

    Also, I dont usually cheat but I got my little cousin to use a "All Safari Blocks" and "All Safari Blocks Max Level" codes before I did any tasks. I thought maybe this would have screwed me over, but the first task triggered fine. I dunno what I'm missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It could be two things, it could be that you're either changing the time or using different DS systems or that the cheats did in fact prevent the tasks from progressing after receiving them.

    Well, would anyone know a way to reset the trigger? I REALLY don't want to restart at this point, but I also REALLY want safari zone shenanigans. I've tried looking for some kinda code or something to force trigger the call, but no luck.

    Figured I'd post here as I realized it probably wasn't worth a thread to itself.

    Two questions:

    1 - Is it possible to get a shiny Dratini from the Game Corner in Heart Gold? I've been soft resetting for about two weeks now, purchasing 5 at a time, about an hour a night (I know, not MUCH) and have had no luck.

    2- Do the shiny sprites appear shiny in the Pokemon sub screen?

    I'm talking about this screen, here.

    If I purchase 5 Dratini from the game corner and check my party, will a shiny Dratini appear purple and not blue in THAT screen, or do I need to manually check each Pokemon?

    Anyone have any proof either way? Do your shinies appear shiny in that sub screen, or only when you individually select them?

    Thanks for any help, guys!

    1. I think you have an 1 in just over 8000 chance for one to being shiny.

    2. No they do not. I own 6 Shiny Pokémon in HG. You need to select them. Just Press up or down on the D-pad and you can scroll though your party.

    Just to clarify what Big Nutter said, yes, you can get a shiny Dratini from the Game Corner in the way in which you are doing it, but there is a ~1/8000 chance that you will get one.

    Can't decide on a water Pokemon for my in-game team. Right now I have a level 17 Bayleef and a level 17 Hoothoot. I'm thinking Wooper, since Quagsire is only weak to Grass, even though it's 4x. Also considering Poliwag, since Poliwrath is part fighting. What about a Krabby? There's a small chance I can capture one with the Old Rod in Union Cave.

    Or should I just wait until I get Surf, change the day on my DS to Friday, and capture Lapras?

    Poliwag would be the best choice, after which I'd say Krabby, with Wooper bringing up the rear.

    Poliwag was my original choice, and I don't remember ever using one before so I may go with that one.

    Well, you already beat the Elite Four and you have 15 badges, so it's not like your team is hindering you from progressing. It's not a very good team competitively, but in-game, it's fine. You do only have 4 Pokemon, and you are missing important types, like Fire, Dark, Psychic, Ghost, Rock/Ground/Steel, and Flying (although Dragonite will fix the flying problem). I'd say if you want to have better type coverage, yes, get two more team members. But if you enjoy your team the way it is, then there is nothing wrong with it.
