    Well, Rocket tended to use a lot of poison and ground/rock types. Not sure what the hell Galactic will use.

    Has it been confirmed yet if the Event Pokemon bug made it in the English games?

    Zubat. Rattata. Poochenya.
    Zubat. Rattata. Poochenya.
    Zubat. Rattata. Poochenya.

    Evil people have a hard on for Zubat, Rattata and Poochenya.

    That pretty much doesn't change for Team Galactic. I mean, it's like the 4th gen equivalent of Rattata and Poochenya, but Zubat is still there and still annoying and useless.

    Just ordered diamond and pearl (for my girlfriend...just got her into leaf green recently), from playasia.

    The bloody EB I ordered from told me it was delayed till the 26th of next month in Aus so I had to cancel. :|

    It'll take 1 to 2 weeks for diamond and 1 day for pearl....so looks like my girlfriends going to have a headstart.

    I wonder when this game is out in Europe.
    Provided I have enough money, I'll be getting a DS and Pokémon soon after the european launch of Pokémon.

    Since they already have the games at the store...I'd say they'll probably be willing to sell you one once it's midnight. It might not be on display yet, but they can still grab a copy.

    that's weird...

    so apparently I qualify for a free stylus from amazon

    I follow the link they gave me and apparently I'm supposed to "check the box next to the image," add to the cart, and then checkout with the number they gave me in the email.

    but it stops right there at step one: in the link they gave me there's neither a check box nor an image, and clicking add to cart without those things just gives an error.

    I'm somewhat confused about how some of the new Evolutions work.

    For instance, Aipom->Ambipom (Which I intend to get).

    He evolves once he levels up with the move Doubleslap, which he learns at around level 30. So why didn't they just have him evolve at level 31, since he probably would anyway?

    Since I have to complete this Shinou dex before I can transer pokemon I might actually play through the quest like normal people.

    I think I will really shitty pokemon that way the game is somewhat challenging.

    Edit: On second thought, no, fuck that. I will speed through like usual. I really, really want to get to the point where I can start making teams.

    whoa shit what

    you have to complete the dex?

    Damn.

    Good thing I planned in advance and made all my pokemon from D/P

    Wait, wait, what.

    COMPLETE the Dex? What the...?

    I have NEVER done that in a single game. Ever. My dex is like, 60 on Ruby.

    Also, Zampano, they do it that way to explain why Aipom couldn't evolve before. If he just evolved at level 31, then he should have been able to evolve back in GSC, but he couldn't because they hadn't invented Ambipom yet.

    Of course it still makes no sense because he could learn Double-Slap in GSC, but whatever.

    I am pretty sure it's been said you simply have to see all Pokemon in the Sinnoh Dex.

    Which apparently is easy.

    End of June but if there are no compatibility problems I will just import.... it will actually be cheaper and Nintendo Europe can go fuck themselves.

    Fun fact: With Ruby and Sapphire Nintendo Europe explicitly forbid the sale of imports and threatened shops that did it with them not getting any Nintendo products. So people had to wait like 4 months to get it. Of course when a big games retail chain did it they did not do anything about it because they do not have the balls to actually threaten the big shops, just the little ones.

    Yes, you only have to see all 150 in the Sinnoh Dex (Manaphy is not included. Nintendo isn't THAT evil). Very simple to do, since you'll see every Pokemon in Trainer battles except for Unown and your version's opposite Legendary. Unown has to be seen in the wild, since the NPCs are smart enough to not use that piece of crap, and there's a little old lady who will show you a picture of the Legendary (Dialga in Pearl and Palkia in Diamond) once you beat the Elite 4.

    That is all.

    That's special wild encounters - you actually catch those pokemon in D/P while FR/LG is in the GBA slot. You can transfer pokemon you own from the older games.

    To transfer pokemon does one have to have access to the transfer in FireRed / LeafGreen or can one just start a game, get the starter, and then save and upload?

    If you have a Charmander on one of your GBA games, then you can transfer it over.

    If you do not, you cannot find Charmander anywhere in Diamond or Pearl.

    Someone can always trade you one. I will be able to if you are desperate.

    I want a Milotic, damn it!

    And to get a Milotic I need to grow more Pamtre Berries to feed to my Feebas to increase his beauty, but I cannot get more Pamtre Berries because Sapphire no longer recognizes TIME.

    The only way to get more Pamtre Berries is to plant them and grow more, which I cannot do since sapphire no longer recognizes TIME.

    Edit: I just realized how absurd this all sounds.

    If anyone out there works at Wal-Mart, I have a question:

    I called this morning to see what time they were going to start selling the Pokemon games tomorrow, and if they were going to just start selling them at midnight, or if they already had them out.

    I was told that they're only selling the games online. A quick check of the Wal-Mart website seems to confirm this.

    Is this for real? I can't imagine Wal-Mart's only offering online purchasing for one of the largest game releases this year.

    Or am I just being jerked around?

    So, I remember hearing a while ago that Feebas is even more obscenely hard to catch in D/P. In addition to being in only a few random tiles, he's also only available on a random day of the week. Is that true? And if so, who do we shoot?

    I R teh farming Feebas until tomorrow at noon.

    I'll happily trade you some.

    Edit: Also, this time glitch may have worked out in my favor. I gave the daycare people 2 feebas and the old man is permanently handing out eggs. I think I may be unable to hatch them...but I assume they will transfer to Diamond / Pearl. And if that is the case then I can freely give Feebas eggs.

    The only realy difference I can tell is Slowbro gets more defense, while Sloking gets more Sp. Defense.

    Hatching eggs is based on the number of steps you take, not time elapsed, so as long as you keep walking around (or even better, riding a bike) the eggs should hatch.
