    I agree: Mt. Battle is the best place to train. Colosseums (Pyrite, Phenac, etc.) can also help you train, and get you some extra money on the side. Also (and this is a personal preference), you should buy lemonades, which should currently be a better deal for your money. Lemonades can be found in the Under by going down then left from the first elevator.
    I don't play pokemon much. You probably have way better pokemon than me. But I've got:
    A Lugia with that knows Psycho Boost
    And a Togepi with Serene Grace, that knows Tri Attack and Ancient Power

    How long will it take to catch 34 hoppips to purify shadow lugia?

    I cant get maximum tempo with shadow pokemon can I? Surely catching 34 hoppips will be faster than purifying the other pokes normally. I just haven't seen one wild hoppip appear yet.

    Well, the easiest way I did it was fill the Purity Chamber up with all Normal Pokemon.

    Yeah, but you would have to purify 34 shadow pokes in order to trade over 34 normal pokemon right? So that would take longer than catching hoppips, maybe

    Not really. Hoppips could appear at anytime because they're not the only Pokemon that live at the Oasis. They are common, but still not the only Pokemon. But, that could work still. :/

    Okay thanks. Also, for a techniqual question, why does XD look terrible on my TV? On a traditional box TV it looked fine, 480p or whatever. But playing it on a small but HD TV I guess, don't really know what to refer to it as, looks bad

    Are the abilities of Shadow Pokémon in Colosseum set the moment you start a new profile? I resetted about six times for a Quagsire with Water Absorb but all I got were Damp ones, so I gave up. Now I'm trying to get a Slugma with Flame Body but all I get are ones with Magma Armor. Are the abilities for Shadow Pokémon already set the moment you make your profile or do I just have horrible luck? It would be strange if the abilities were set since their genders and IV's aren't.

    I believe they're set the moment you catch them.

    Haha, I was actually on the verge of giving up on Slugma. I was like, "Okay, this is the last time I'm going to try to catch it! I don't care if it has Magma Armor or Flame Body!" So, I caught it and guess what? It had Flame Body! So I just got bad luck after all...

    What does it mean you get a "free continue" each time none of your Pokes faints in Mt.Battle?

    That means you get to go again if you go without any of your Pokemon fainting. For example, if you win one of the easy battles at the beginning without none of your Pokemon fainting, but then you get to the end where the hard battles are and lose, then you can use a continue. I think everything is right, if memory serves me right.

    Thanks. That's what I assumed- so it's pretty hard to actually fail the challenge then probably.

    I have a question about the purification chamber in XD. I get how the type matchups affect the tempo, but I don't get what makes those additional thinner white "arrows" appear to the right of the blue ones under the "flow". I've made it happen inadvertantly some times, and tried to figure it out, but I don't get it...anyone know about that?

    Yeah I have the same question. After some experimenting I think the arrows in the flow go up the more chambers you have max tempo on.

    But then after I purified a couple things it went back down sooo I dunno

    Question Can Japanese Generation III games communicate with North American games?

    Hello everyone,

    Recently, I have been presented with the offer to purchase the Japanese Pokémon Colosseum Bonus Disc- in which you can download the otherwise unobtainable Pokémon, Celebi. I'm highly interested in purchasing this, however, I don't want to spend my money if the game will not communicate with my own Generation III games.

    So, will the Japanese Bonus Disc be able to communicate properly with North American R/S/E/FR/LG? Alternatively, if it won't, could I download Celebi onto a Japanese GBA Pokémon game, and then transfer it to my North American GBA Pokémon games properly? I do have a Japanese GameCube to use the Bonus Disc on.

    My only experience in this matter was communicating between my Japanese Pocket Monsters Green and my Pokémon Red and Blue versions. Communicating between those games resulted in terrible glitches, usually making the trades and battles impossible. I'm unsure if anything will have changed between Generation I and III.

    Thank you in advance!
    I don't uber, I don't calculate stats, I don't "EV" my Pokémon. I train my Pokémon the same way I have since Generation I, and I treat them like more than the mindless drones people make them out to be, like I would if Pokémon really existed.

    If you read our FAQ (in the first few posts of this thread.), it says you can not communicate with a Japanese Game cube game with an English Gameboy Advance game. However, I believe that the the GBA games can trade with each other regardless of language.

    @Nutter t.KK

    Thank you for that info. I guess I'll purchase a Japanese GBA game and transfer Celebi onto that, and from there onto my North American GBA games.

    I am asking for XD and Emerald help. This may not be in the right place, I am new here so please forgive me.

    I captured the shadow Scyther and used it for a few battles. I then purified it. I know that EV's are supposed to take effect at this point. I immediately put this Scyther on Emerald; I wanted to EV train it. I tried to use the EV reducing berries (except for Tamato, which I can't get because the internal battery ran dry). This Scyther must have 10-20 EV's in every stat, but the game wouldn't let me use the berries. What should I do to remove all EV's from this Scyther?

    Are you USING the Berries or GIVING the berries to hold? Using will have the desired effect, while Giving will make the Pokémon hold the berry.

    I am using them, but the game says something along the lines of "The base HP can't be lowered." It still raises the friendliness, but I want the EV's to be lowered.

    If it says that, your Scyther has 0 EVs in that particular stat already.

    Are Ev's cleared when it is traded? I know that I beat Greevil's Zapdos, for instance, with this Scyther.

    No, they are not. If you are using a Pomeg Berry and your Scyther only defeated Zapdos, the reason you are getting that message is because Zapdos gives Sp. Attack EVs, not HP. Have you tried using any of the berries for other stats?

    I have used every berry except Tamato (speed). Unfortunately, I can't get Tamato because my internal battery died. Plus, this Scyther beat more than just the Zapdos, I estimate it to have 10-20 EV's in each stat.

    Hi everyone, I was looking to buy a copy if XD online, however given that I live in New Zealand I can only play PAL format. Ebay's been a great source but most of the copies are NTSC or they are PAL but won't ship worldwide :/. Do you think it's a good idea to buy a German/French copy etc and change the language if possible? It's just an idea I'd like to try

    EDIT: Don't worry, it worked out fine
