    In all the previous online DS games, they're generated by the game when you go online for the first time. Then they stay the same as long as you don't try to go online with that cartridge in a different DS than the first one. If you do, your old code is reset and it's a big pain in the ass if you have to get all your old friends to reenter your new code.

    To people already playing the game, how is the music? Does it sounds a lot better than it did on GBA? The battle music has always been one of my favorite part of Pokemon games.

    If you're talking about the quality, then it's a tad better.

    But if you are talking about the actual music, overall I like the songs better here than any of the other versions. Especially the rival's theme.

    I was asking about both I guess. Awesome, thanks.:^:

    i gotta break out my ds tomorrow to grab my friends code, as ive never had a reason to find it out before now.

    and i mentioned before but i will say again, i will be holding off on starting my own game for a while so i can hook people up with all the starters they could dream of. this is to balance out all the hojillions of pokeymans im gonna beg off other people.

    edit: and if people wanna start sending me pm's with what starters they want, preferred name (if any), and friends code, i can get it all ready to go before the FINAL COUNTDOOOOOWN is over.

    Houk you are a saint and if you get me the grass and fire starters, I will so totally give you a mew or celebi if you need one as soon I can access the park. I have 2 mew's and 3 celebi's I think so I can part with one of them.
    late, but you are a man among men. i dunno which of those i would pick. ideally id take whichever one is tougher to find, but eh. all things being equal, im thinking celebi.

    make sure and shoot me a pm once you get friends code, along with whatever names you might want your starters to have.

    Then Celebi it is! I will however do a temp trade for Mew if you want where I just give him to you and you send him right back so it can register as being seen/caught even if you don't still have him. I'm hoping somebody with Deoxys will do the same thing for me.

    As soon as I get my code I'll send you a PM but honestly for names, I usually just name them the same thing but in proper punctuation. All capital names bug me but I don't really mind them on trades. If you do that though, don't make the mistake I did. I accidentally uncapitalized their names and then traded but forgot I can't change names of traded guys so when they evolved, they still had their basic starter names. Gilder sends out Torchic! *Level 65 Blaziken appears* :lol:

    Oh, do you need a Jirachi? I have a ruby that I basically use as my Jirachi maker so I can get an unlimited amount of them. I have like 4 or 5 of them I think and they're never been used so they're clean.

    Neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew thread!

    ... four pages in. Same thing.

    The anticipation mounts. Mounts I say! The next two days are gonna be killer.

    And Houk, think that perhaps I could get the grass and fire starters as well? I really only need Charmander, but the others would be nice if you're not swamped with other people taking advantage of your awesomeness. In return I'll totally give you... uh... a hug?

    yeah the trade-tradeback for mew would be awesome, as would the goofy but lovable jirachi. seriously, ive got the fever. its been in remission, but i can feel a relapse of the highest order coming on.

    ill make sure not to rename so that evos dont get crazy.

    t vann diras - sure, just make sure to send me a PM with all necessary info. i will totally forget otherwise.

    Then I shall also be sure to give you Jirachi and do the tradeback. The way I got back into the pokeyman fever was pretty odd. A friend gave me that e-card for ruby and sapphire that give you a ticket to go catch Latios or Latias and I just couldn't stand not using it. So I pick up Sapphire and it all came back to me. I'll also try and come up with some nicknames in the next 2 days if possible but if I can't, just leave them default and it'll all be fine.

    why did they have to make the non-friend code stuff so half assed?

    if I understand it correctly

    1. You don't actually battle other people in the tower, you just fight the computer as if it were using other people's teams

    2. You can't search for pokemon you've never seen when you're trying to trade

    I'm not sure which one is more annoying. The second in particular is a needless restriction, but the first just sounds lazy.

    Yeah, I'm considering making a few copies of Mew and Celebi with emerald, but I don't know if Nintendo will have some kind of guard against it. It's unlikely though. However, I think I should require some kind of collateral just in case, like a shiny or something really super special awesome.

    One out of two ain't bad.

    I'm kind of glad there isn't anything on Sunday Adult Swim I like to watch right now. I can just go home and play Diamond all day long until I have to go to sleep.

    Then I can go to class, and afterwards find out if my campus wifi network works on the DS.

    I bet the first is so they don't have to worry about trainers and pokemon named "COCKVAGINA"

    And the second restriction makes sense if you get in character. If you've never seen a Charmander before, how can you know what it is?

    But yes, I agree, it's an annoying restriction. I guess they want you to rely on your friends for Pokemon you don't have.

    even if they're not real battles you can accomplish "seeing" different pokemon you need through the tower, no?

    But seriously- when can you use the tower thing for trading wifi? Because if possible, I could even trade you for one on MONDAY.

    The tower appears to be unlocked after you beat the Elite Four, according to the instruction booklet.

    edit: but you trade online earlier than that. Still, you'll need the national dex before you can transfer over any squirtles. Either way, it won't be monday.

    I think I remember the guys on Gamespot saying one of the first few towns you encounter has the global trading center, so I imagine you can get to that pretty quickly.

    But you won't be able to get anyone a Squirtle that fast. You'd have to wait til you finished the Elite 4 then get to the PalPark for you to transfer your GBA pokemon to your Diamond Cart to be traded.

    Edit: But then again Taya has the game, I'm just going on loose vicarious information that could very easily be wrong.

    To be clear:

    Global trade center: in the first city you encounter. Can trade for stuff that you've seen without friend codes.
    Wifi with friends: available in the town with the first gym. Can trade and battle with friends online.
    Battle tower: Can download and battle online opponents "data" without friend codes. Unlocked after the E4.
    Pal Park: transfers over your pokemon from GBA. Unlocked after the national dex.

    I think this is right.

    Quick question, but how do you go about getting moves like Solarbeam or Earthquake on multiple pokes when it seems that you only get one of each TM on any given playthrough? Does the secret lie in breeding, or is there something else I'm missing?

    Breeding or Multiple TMs.

    Earthquake can be picked up at level 100 I think it is with the Pick-Up ability.
