( s1. INTRODUCTION | ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: )
 `~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Hello! This is the second FAQ that I am publishing to GameFAQs (and to any
other sites whom have received my permission to use this FAQ). I have been
super enthusiastic about the new Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl games that
were released in Japan recently since the day they came out. I have been
working dilligently on trying to acquire as much information as possible about
the two games, and now, I have decided that it is time to work on writing a
good Walkthrough for the two games.

Now that the games are released in English, I will be going through and trying
to localize all of the names and stuff to keep them current with the English
version, instead of the Japanese version. I may miss a few things here and
there, so if you see a funny name that doesn't sound familiar, it means I just
missed it while going through and changing things.

THIS IS NOT A SPOILER-FREE WALKTHROUGH! In fact, this Walkthrough will have as
many spoilers as possible!

You will not find any pictures (for obvious reasons) or stats on the Pokemon
in this guide.

For pictures of the new Pokemon, you can check out:
  http://pokemon.marriland.com/diamond_pearl/new_pictures/

Also, since making a text-based Pokedex out of my existing Pokedex just isn't
time-sensible, you can view my D/P Pokedex on my site, at the following page:
  http://pokemon.marriland.com/diamond_pearl/pokedex/

And since I'm already going link crazy, a video walkthrough - for those of you
that like seeing stuff in action - is being worked on, as are tutorials on how
to catch certain Pokemon or do certain things. Check 'em out here:
  http://pokemon.marriland.com/diamond_pearl/videos/

Lastly, a stylized Walkthrough, written by me and improved from this one, can
be found here:
  http://www.mycheats.com/view/superguide/17032/pokemon_diamond_pearl_/

With that being said, please do enjoy the Walkthrough I have written. I hope
it helps you out through the game, or, if you do not own the game and merely
wish to take a peek at what the game is all about!

Also, please do keep in mind that this guide was written for Pokemon Diamond.
The only real differences that you will find in this guide if you're playing
Pokemon Pearl is that the wild Pokemon in some areas may be different, and
you will catch Palkia instead of Dialga. I will eventually make the guide
fully compatible with Pearl and point out all of the differences, but for now
just bear with me.

( s2. VERSION HISTORY | :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: )
 `~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Version 2.50 (5/12/07 - 654KB)
   - I added completely accurate attacks for each and every Pokemon for each
     Gym Leader, Commander, and other big battles of importance. Now you will
     be able to see exactly what each big foe has in their arsenal!
   - I FIXED MY E-MAIL, PRAISES BE! I'm really sorry about my e-mail being
     down for, like, almost 2 weeks. There was some wacky setting in my site's
     configuration that I didn't have a clue about, but I finally figured it
     out, woohoo! If you tried to send a message and got some freaky 550 relay
     not permitted message, you can now send your message to me and I should
     be able to receive it without any problems.
   - Just because my e-mail is fixed doesn't mean I'll be able to respond to
     the 80 - 100 e-mails I'm getting a day, though... heh heh...
   - In fact, I updated my Contact Info section to help explain things better.
   - Fixed a ton of typoes, clarified some things, and axed more Japanese
     names.
   - Added a list of all of the items you can buy with your BP in the Battle
     Park section (section 6.3.2.).
   - Updated the TM list so it is now complete.
   - Changed the name of Northeast Island to Battle Zone, since I guess that's
     what it's called now.
   - Fixed some info about getting to Giratina (it's still kinda vague), and
     also added more info about the Resort Area.
   - I'm starting to run out of things to update. I guess next up would be
     coverage on Route 224, and then I get to PLAY SOME MINIGAMES! D:

Version 2.00 (5/4/07 - 630KB)
   - I'm pretty sure I have nailed 99% of the Japanese names now.
   - Added a section on Regigigas and Rotom.
   - Did a lot of reorganizing, merging the Post-Game and Optional Areas into
     one whole section, and then added a section showing you where to find
     specific Pokemon, just because a lot of you don't know how to press CTRL
     + F to find things (or because I didn't list them, heh heh).
   - Revamped the Pastoria Great Marsh section a bit.
   - Tons of typoes and corrections fixed throughout the Walkthrough.
   - Added Poketch Apps #6, #17, #18, and #19. Also listed #21 - #25.
   - ACCURATE ENCOUNTER TABLES ARE NOW UP! These should be 100% accurate, and
     completely compatible with both Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl.
   - Apparently my e-mail was down for a few days while I was working on
     getting a second server. If you sent anything and weren't able to get it
     through, you have my apologies. I am working on resolving this problem as
     quickly as possible, so if you are still getting error messages, just try
     again in a day or two, or contact me using my contact form, which can be
     found in the Contact Info section (section 11.).
   - I have gotten so many e-mails (especially while the dp@ e-mail address
     was working) since the release of Diamond and Pearl that it's insane! I
     apologize if I haven't been able to respond to your e-mail, but I'm
     literally getting 50 - 80 a day. I'm glad that you all like my
     Walkthrough so much, though, and I try to answer whatever questions I
     can! Just know that I'm pretty darn busy now... 

Version 1.80 (4/24/07 - 543KB)
   - 90 to 95% of all names should now be current with the English version of
     Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. This Walkthrough is now officially for the
     English version!
   - I probably missed a few, though. No need to point them out; just work
     with them for now.
   - I'll go through and make corrections to the guide as I play through the
     game.
   - Ported the Walkthrough to a really spiffy HTML version, over at
       http://www.mycheats.com/view/superguide/17032/pokemon_diamond_pearl_/
     complete with screenshots and stuff that can't be in a simple text file.
     But this text version will still be updated because it's portable.
   - Added the effects to some of the items.
   - Removed the Translation Guide section because it was no longer necessary.
     That's why the filesize dropped by 10KB.
   - Version 2.00 will be when this guide is 100% complete for the English
     version.

Version 1.30 (3/19/07 - 553KB)
   - Replaced ALL of the Pokemon names with their confirmed English names.
   - Updated some other names, such as Team Galaxy to Team Galactic, the
     Poke Watch to the Poketch, and probably another here and there.
   - Corrected Heatran's attack list. It has Scary Face, not Mean Look.
   - Made a lot of miscellaneous updates to various sections while I went
     through the list.
   - Fixed various typoes.
   - Added some new questions to the Frequently Asked Questions section.
   - Finally added a list of where you can find every single Pokemon for your
     Sinnoh Dex! This can be found in section 8.6.! Right now, it just shows
     the locations of the Pokemon for Trainers, but I might later extend it
     to show where you can actually catch the Pokemon.
   - Also added a English / Japanese name conversion section so you can see
     both the English and Japanese names for each Pokemon to help avoid some
     confusion while you adjust to the English names.
   - Changed nearly all of the wild Pokemon encounter tables so they show an
     accurate percentage of encounter instead of just an estimated rarity. It
     only shows the frequency for encountering Pokemon in the daytime for now,
     although future updates should have the other two times as well, in
     addition to Surfing encounters and the encounter rates for all three of
     the Rods.

Version 1.00 (1/16/07 - 528KB)
   - Yes, after over two months, I finally have an update - one that I deem
     "completes" the Walkthrough.
   - The entire Northeast Island section has been added and covered (sections
     6.3.1. to 6.3.11.).
   - Updated sections 7.4. (Pokemon Mansion & Proud Garden) and 7.6. (Safari
     Zone) to include a little information about there being more Pokemon that
     you can catch after obtaining the National Dex. (I still need to add how
     to get Rotomu to the Forest Manor section, I know.)
   - Added some info on the Pokemon Super Contests.
   - Updated the lists of locations and items to reflect the new additions.
   - Made a whole ton of assorted other updates over the past two months that
     I can't really remember them all.
   - DIAMOND AND PEARL WILL BE RELEASED IN THE USA ON APRIL 22nd, 2007!!
   - Changed some of the names to reflect the revealed English names.
     Professor Nanakamado to Professor Rowan, Futaba Town to Twinleaf Town, 
     and Perap to Chatot.
   - Fixed several typoes (calling Rock Climb "Rock Slide" NUMEROUS times
     throughout the walkthrough ... shame on me!)
   - Probably other stuff I'm forgetting that you'll just have to hunt down!

Version 0.95 (11/8/06 - 460KB)
   - Did some reorganizing of the different sections, now dedicating section
     6. to Post-Game, section 7. to Optional Areas, section 8. to Useful 
     Lists, and the sections afterward have just been post-incremented by 2 to
     reflect the new additions.
   - Added many of the Post-Game events, covering sections 6.1. to 6.5. and
     all subsections, except for 6.3. Still have a lot of Post-Game stuff to
     write about, though...
   - Most likely going to merge Post-Game and Optional Areas into one section
     later on, since several of the Optional Areas are much, much more
     interesting after completing the game and unlocking the National Dex,
     however they aren't exactly Post-Game because you can access them early
     on. Hmm, decisions, decisions...
   - Added the Useful Lists section which has an easy to read listing of all
     of the Held Items, Key Items, TMs/HMs, Poketch Applications, and
     important places and people. Hopefully this will help answer everyone's
     questions before they are asked, plus it saves you the time of having to
     wade through the Walkthrough to find what you are looking for.
   - Fixed a few typoes here and there.
   - I feel so sad only adding .05 to the version number after adding almost
     100KB of content. Ugh. I'm going to mark this as "complete" and make it
     version 1.00 in the next update, where I cover the northeast island.

Version 0.90 (10/30/06 - 370KB)
   - Covered sections 5.9.1. (Route 223) through 5.9.3. (The Pokemon League).
     Doesn't seem like a lot, but it really was.
   - Also added section 5.9.0. to list all of the optional areas you can
     revisit now that you can use Waterfall.
   - Added Route 210 to the list of locations that you can visit after you can
     use Rock Climb (see section 5.8.0.).
   - The Walkthrough now covers from the beginning of the game to the end! Not
     going to mark it as complete just yet, though. I'm going to add all of
     the Post-Game events first.
   - Renamed section 2. to "Version History & Future Updates" so I can put all
     of the updates I have planned for this Walkthrough in here as well.
   - Added two more credits to section 9.
   - Oops, I realized I forgot to update the version number in the last
     update, ha ha ha, silly me, I knew that would happen eventually.

Version 0.80 (10/25/06 - 331KB)
   - Covered sections 5.8.1. (Mio City) through 5.8.14. (Nagisa Gym). This
     took close to forever due to all of the events that happen in this part
     of the game.
   - Added Cave of Doubt (Secret Area) to the Optional Areas (section 6.8.).
   - Added a ASCII-rendition of the World Map to the Translation Guide (in
     section 4.).
   - Fixed numerous things throughout the Walkthrough based on information
     that was either sent in via e-mail or checked on my Pearl version's
     playthrough.
   - Did some slight graphical updates on the Walkthrough, changing the
     section headers and such to a new look.
   - Added another site to the list of sites able to use this Walkthrough.
   - Ran out of time to add more questions to the Frequently Asked Questions
     section of this guide. Oh well, I'll try do that in the next update.
   - Added two new bits to the Credits section.

Version 0.70 (10/18/06 - 262KB)
   - Covered sections 5.7.1. (Tengan Mountain) through 5.7.6. (Kissaki Gym).
   - Renamed "Royal Relic" to "Tengan Mountain" to help avoid confusion and
     remain more consistant in the recognized names for things.
   - Added Route 211 (West) to section 5.2. as 5.2.13., and reordered Hakutai
     Gym as 5.2.14.
   - Added a bit about the Ruin Maniac's Grotto in Route 214 (section 5.5.4.).

Version 0.60 (10/17/06 - 238KB)
   - Covered sections 5.6.1. (Route 218) through 5.6.3. (Mio Gym).
   - Added Steel Island to the Optional Areas (section 6.7.).
   - Finally designed an AWESOME logo for the Walkthrough in ASCII! Woohoo!
   - Fixed, like, one or two typoes.

Version 0.50 (10/16/06 - 216KB)
   - Covered sections 5.5.1. (Nomose City) through 5.5.9. (Yosuga Gym). Also
     covered all of the optional things you can do after you can use Surf in
     section 5.6.0.
   - Added Tatara Ironworks to the Optional Areas (section 6.6.).
   - Added the location of some items, as well as Pokemon to catch to older
     sections that I missed before.
   - Fixed the location of the Move Relearner.
   - Fixed a lot of typoes. I am ALWAYS getting Kotobuki and Kurogane City
     mixed up. Argh!
   - Also added ASCII for the Japanese "Yes" and "No" to the Translation
     section.
   - Decided to up the version number a whole .2 points instead of .1 due to
     the fact that I've gotta be at least half way through, plus a lot of
     extra areas are covered. 0.40 just didn't seem to do it justice.

Version 0.30 (10/15/06 - 166KB)
   - Covered sections 5.4.1. (Tobari City) through 5.4.5. (Nomose Gym).
   - Replaced section 5.A. with 5.4., since that is where you're supposed to
     go (as I thought). The Pokemon Mansion and Proud Garden sections have
     been moved to the Optional Areas (section 6.4.).
   - Added the Zui Ruins, Pokemon Mansion and Proud Garden, and the Safari
     Zone to the Optional Areas.
   - Included where to get the Raising Checker Poketch Application in the
     Zui Town section, as a note. (You get it after hatching 5 Eggs.)
   - Fixed a few more typoes.
   - Added another Frequently Asked Question.

Version 0.20 (10/11/06 - 147KB)
   - Covered sections 5.3.10. (Lost Tower) through 5.3.15. (Tobari Gym).
   - I can't believe it took me two days just to get from one town to another.
     I guess it makes sense seeing as I'm a total information geek and have to
     explore every single area before I progress to the next one. I mean, my
     play time was at 27:00+ when I got my third badge, ugh! Enough ranting!
   - Fixed Hyouta's gender... Sorry, but he looked like a girl. Now he's just
     one of many feminine men in Pokemon... with a hardhat!
   - Updated a few things earlier in the FAQ. Also changed 5.3.10. from Zui
     Town to the Lost Tower and changed Zui Town to 5.3.11., because you can
     go to the Tower that early and you might as well pick up HM04 while you
     are in the area rather than forget later.
   - Added another question to the Frequently Asked Questions.

Version 0.13 (10/9/06 - 111KB)
   - Covered sections 5.3.1 (Hakutai City) through 5.3.9 (Route 209).
   - Added the Optional Areas section along with the optional areas "Forest
       Manor" and "Cave of Doubt", both of which seem to be optional at this
       point.
   - Fixed a few minor errors throughout the guide. (I mean, come on, it said
       that Version 0.10 was made in 10/4/05, haha! My bad!)
   - Added a link to the pictures and Pokedex, since a lot of people want to
       see that stuff anyway.
   - Added some commonly asked questions to the Frequently Asked Questions
       section.
   - Allowed two new sites usage of using this FAQ.

Version 0.10 (10/7/06)
   - Initial release of the Walkthrough. Setting version # at 0.10 since I am,
       by my estimations, roughly 10% through writing the Walkthrough part.
   - Only the Walkthrough is available for the time being. Other sections will
       follow in later releases.
   - Covered sections 5.1.1 (Twinleaf Town) through 5.2.13 (Hakutai City Gym).

( s5. WALKTHROUGH | :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: )
 `~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.0.0. Getting Started |________________________________________________)

At the beginning of a new game, you will be greeted by Professor Rowan. He will
then let you ask him questions about the game controls, but since it is all in
Japanese, you will probably just want to select the third option down. If you
do find yourself in one of the first two options, keep in mind that whenever it
shows the red DS symbol inside of the text on-screen, you will need to (or,
often times, simply have the option to) use the touch screen to make a
selection.

He will then explain to you about Pokemon, and will instruct you to open a
Poke Ball. A Poke Ball will appear on the touch screen. Simply touch the
center of it, and a Munchlax will pop out. After putting the Munchlax away,
you will be able to choose whether to play as a Male or Female character. Just
highlight the one you want to play as and press A. It makes no significant
impact on the gameplay and is merely personal preference (to my knowledge).
(For the sake of this Walkthrough, I am going to assume that you are playing
as a Male character.) You will then be prompted to enter a name, which can be
up to 7 letters, numbers, or symbols.

After entering your name, your "rival" will be shown on screen and you will be
prompted to give him a name as well. Same rules apply, except there are
different default names for him. For the sake of this walkthough, I am going
to refer to him as Rival. Yeah, pretty original nickname for him, huh?

You will then be shrunk into the game, and your journey will begin.
 _____________________________________________________________________________
/ | s5.1. Coal Badge |                                                       /
`-'------------------'------------------------------------------------------`
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.1.1. Twinleaf Town |__________________________________________________)

There will be a news article on TV about a Red Gyarados in some mountain. But
the news article will then end, and you will have control over your character.
Notice the Wii in your room. Game Freak and Nintendo are such teases! Proceed
to head down the stairs where you will be greeted by your Mother. She will
instruct you to go and see Rival. On your way out, she'll say something else.
Leave the house and make your way to the northeastern-most house and Rival
will pop out of the door. He'll start to run off, but must have forgotten
something as he heads back inside. Go in after him, heading up to the second
floor, and he'll leave.

Go north, up to Route 201, and you'll find Rival. He'll talk about the Red
Gyarados on TV and will follow you. Take him over to the west (you can't go
east yet), in to the forest. If you want to save before picking your starter
Pokemon (for trying to get a certain gender, positive stats, shiny, etc), do
so before entering the forest.

Inside of the forest, by the lake, you will see Professor Rowan and Dawn.
After some dialogue between them, they'll notice the two of you, and will then
leave. However, the Professor forgot his suitcase, as you and Rival quickly
discover. As you approach it, though, you are attacked by some wild Pokemon!

Now is the time that you'll be able to choose your Starting Pokemon, so choose
wisely!

.----------------------------.
| TURTWIG  (Turtle)    GRASS |
'--.-------------------------`._________________________________
   | Turtwig, the Turtle Pokemon, is a pretty solid choice. It  |
   | has great Defense and Attack, although it is pretty slow.  |
   | Fortunately, it will be able to take hits throughout the   |
   | game, which is a good thing. It learns Razor Leaf pretty   |
   | early on, too, giving it a nice offensive attack. Later    |
   | on, Turtwig will eventually evolve into Grotle, followed   |
   | by Torterra, which is Grass / Ground and capable of        |
   | unleashing Earthquake.                                     |
.----------------------------.__________________________________|
| CHIMCHAR (Monkey)     FIRE |
'--.-------------------------`._________________________________
   | Chimchar, the Monkey Pokemon, is all about doing damage.   |
   | It learns a wide variety of various Physical-based attacks |
   | and it has the Attack stat to use them fairly well.        |
   | Although it may have difficulty with the first Gym, it     |
   | will prove to be a strong fighter during the rest of your  |
   | journey. When Chimchar evolves into Monferno at Level 14,  |
   | it will become part Fighting-type as well and will start   |
   | learning Fighting-type moves to utilize its second type.   |
   | Its final form, Infernape, is also part Fighting-type, and |
   | is also quite fast to boot.                                |
.----------------------------.__________________________________|
| PIPLUP (Penguin)     WATER |
'--.-------------------------`._________________________________
   | Piplup, the Penguin Pokemon, is, unfortunately, not that   |
   | great early on in the game. It doesn't learn any strong    |
   | moves until Bubblebeam, which is Level 24 at it's second   |
   | stage. However, its forms have good Special Attack, and    |
   | its final Evolution, Empoleon, is part Metal-type, making  |
   | it resistant to most any attacks.                          |
   |____________________________________________________________|

You will have to fight against a Level 2 Starly. Just keep using your
Pokemon's first attack and you will win. Rival will take the Pokemon that you
are weak to.

Afterward, Dawn will return and take back the suitcase. Leave the forest, and
then you and Rival will run into Dawn and the Professor again. He will notice
that the two Pokemon that are missing, but will then leave and Dawn will
follow, telling you to come to the lab in Sandgem Town. You will then be taken
back home, and your Mother will tell you to go to Sandgem Town, followed by
giving you the Running Shoes. Now you can hold in B while moving to run,
woohoo!
 ____________________________________________________________________________

   |____________|___________|____________________|_____|_____|_____|

Return to Route 201, although this time you can actually proceed east, through
the tall grass. Do so, and make your way east bound until you get to Sandgem
Town. I would also recommend fighting 2 or 3 battles to get up to Level 6. If
your HP gets below 10, you should return back to your house and speak with
your Mother to heal your Pokemon.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.1.3. Sandgem Town |___________________________________________________)

Upon arriving in Sandgem Town, Dawn will be waiting for you there, and she
will lead you to the Professor's Lab. Rival will then walk out just then and
will run off. Dawn will take you inside. Inside, after a bit of talking, the
Professor will decide to give you the Pokemon you chose. You can then give it
a nickname, if you desire. Eventually, he will ask you if you want to travel
throughout Sinnoh and catalog information on the different Pokemon in it. Say
yes, and you will receive the Pokedex. After some more dialogue, Dawn will
receive the remaining starter Pokemon.

Leave the building, and then Dawn will take you around the town, showing you
the different features (such as the Pokemon Center and Poke Mart). She'll then
head north, up to Route 202, and won't let you pass.

Return back to your house and speak with your Mother. She'll heal your
Pokemon, and will then give you the Note. Lots more dialgoue here, followed by
Rival's mother walking in, eventually giving you another key item (Parcel).
She will tell you to go to Jubilife City to give it to Rival.

Make your way back to Route 202 where Dawn was, and she'll show you how to
catch Pokemon. After she catches a Bidoof, she will give you 5 Poke Balls. I
would recommend buying five more, though, just in case, as well as 3 or so
Potions (for when it gets rough).

Whenever you're done catching some Pokemon, continue past where Dawn was and
you'll have to start fighting Trainers along your path. The first one will
only have a Level 5 Starly and is pretty easy. Battle your way through the
other two Trainers, and you will eventually reach Jubilife City.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.1.5. Jubilife City |__________________________________________________)

When you arrive, Dawn will tell you how many Pokemon you've caught and will
tell you to visit the Trainer School. She says that Rival is there. Then, she
leaves.

The Trainer School is the house right to the left of the Pokemon Center.
Enter, and then talk to Rival. You'll give him the Parcel and inside it will
be 2 Town Maps. He decides to give you the second one. He then sets his sights
for Oreburgh City to go to the Gym there. He'll say some other stuff, and then
leave. While you're in the Pokemon School, you can fight the two Trainers on
the blue carpet if you want some EXP.

The Abras both know only Hidden Power and shouldn't be too difficult for any
of your Pokemon at Level 8 or above. You can talk to the boy after battling
both of the two to receive TM10 (Hidden Power).

As you try and go past the School, a man in a suit will approach you and will
tell you that he'll give you a Poketch (short for Poke Watch) if you can bring
him three coupons. He'll also tell you that there are three campaign clowns in
town, and each of them has a coupon.

The clowns are wearing a yellow outfit, with a yellow hat that has two little
white balls on the top of it. Each jester will ask you a trivia question. They
can be found in the following locations:

- Behind the Pokemon Center
- Outside of the Poketch Company (west side of town)
- In front of the TV Station (north side of town)

Answer yes to any of their questions and you'll receive one of three Poketch
Coupons.

Once you have all 3 coupons, return to the man (he will be standing by the
Pokemon Center) and he will give you the Poketch. The Poketch has some pretty
handy features that are covered in the Poketch section of this guide.

You can get the Old Rod right now if you head west past the Poketch Company
and talk to the Fisherman in the building. Answer Yes and he'll give you the
Old Rod, which you can use to catch things like... Magikarp. To fish, just use
the Old Rod near a body of water and wait until a "!" appears over your head.
When the "!" appears, press the A button, and you'll start the battle. You can
try it out by exiting the building onto Route 218, although there really isn't
anything else there other than a dock ... for now.

Anyway, if you want to get in a little extra training, go north of Jubilife
City to Route 204. Otherwise, now that you have the Poketch, head east to
Route 203.

You can catch Budew, a Grass/Poison-type Pokemon, in the fields here. If you
started with Chimchar, I strongly recommend catching one and training it so it
learns Absorb. It will come in handy later, trust me. There's also three
Trainers to battle to help you get money and EXP, so help yourself. If you go
inside of the cave to the back, you can pick up a Antidote, and can also fight
Geodudes and Zubats.

As you enter Route 203, you'll run into Rival, who will challenge you to a
battle. He will use a L7 Starly and then a L9 of the Pokemon that he started
with. The Starly should be pretty easy, although the starter can be a bit
more challenging. If you picked Piplup, you're probably not going to be
having a fun time against the Turtwig he will use since it likes to use
Withdraw a lot. A Starly of your own at Level 9 or higher (for Wing Attack)
is a good way to counter that.

After beating him, he will run off toward Oreburgh City to try and challenge
the Gym Leader there.

Now, there's quite a few Trainers to fight along the way. They're all pretty
easy, though, but will give some good EXP for your Pokemon, so I would
recommend fighting all that you can, running back to the Pokemon Center in
case you get weak.

Make your way through the Trainers and you'll find a cave entrance. If you
don't have any Water- or Grass-type attacks in your Pokemon move pool, you
should definitely go back and heal before you enter. I'd recommend doing that
anyway, just to be on the safe side. There be Trainers in the tunnel!

down to the Oreburgh Coal Mine.

You can get a Great Ball if you talk to a Youngster in the upstairs of one of
the buildings. You can also get a Super Potion if you talk to the guy with the
Machop near the entrance to the Mine.

Whenever you're ready, head to the southern end of the town and enter the
Mine.

Snag the X Defend to the right when you enter, then descend down, deeper into
the mine. One Pokemon to watch out for is Onix, who appears rather rarely.
It's a real pain to catch, so if you intend on catching it, make sure that you
lower its HP to the red zone, and be prepared to throw 10+ Poke Balls at it.

In the second area of the mine, take a left when the path branches and jump
down the ledge. Pick up the Escape Rope, and then fight with the Worker there
if you want to. Keep going and then talk to the guy with the hardhat on.
He'll use Rock Smash on an adjacent rock, and then introduce himself as
Roark, the Gym Leader. He'll then invite you to come to the Gym to challenge
him. Woohoo. Pick up the Potion, and then fight against the Worker (optional).

When you're all done down here, find your way back to the entrance, heal up at
the Pokemon Center, and get ready for your first Gym Battle!

Alright, here it is, the Oreburgh City Gym! The Trainers in here all use Rock-
type Pokemon, which is pleasant if you started with Piplup or Turtwig.
However, if Chimchar is your Starting Pokemon, then you might have a bit of
difficulty. Definitely make sure that you train your Chimchar to Level 14 or
higher so it will evolve into Monferno and learn Mach Punch. If you have a
Level 13+ Budew, you will stand a much nicer chance, because its Mega Drain
will do a ton of damage to everything in here. Definitely use one (catch one
if you don't already have it) if you ran into any difficulties in the Mine (or
cannot handle the Trainers in the Gym).

After getting past the two Youngsters, you'll get to go head-to-head against
the Gym Leader that you met in the Mine, Roark.

      '---------------------'

Roark starts off by using two Pokemon that you should be somewhat familiar in
fighting by now: Geodude and Onix. The Geodude knows Stealth Rock, which,
after it's been used, will damage any Pokemon that you switch in. Against
Geodude, use Bubble (not Metal Claw, if you have it), Razor Leaf, Mach Punch,
or Mega Drain. If you have none of those attacks at your disposal, use your
strongest Special-based attacks, because Geodude has a lot weaker Special
Defense than it does Defense.

Onix comes out next, although fortunately its stats make it fairly tame. Just
give it the same treatment you gave Geodude and you'll be fine, although avoid
using Mach Punch or any other Physical-based attack here unless you use
something like Leer first, because Onix has ridiculously high Defense (Razor
Leaf will still cut it, though).

Lastly, Roark brings out his Cranidos, which is like a Rock dinosaur thingy.
Be careful, because this thing has INSANELY high attack (at least 40) and is
capable of doing a lot of damage with its Headbutt attack. Take it out with
Mega Drain, Razor Leaf, Metal Claw (or Bubble, if your Piplup hasn't evolved
yet), or Mach Punch. Those attacks will do the most damage to it.

After your victory, he will give you the Coal Badge, which will allow you to
use Rock Smash (remember that?) outside of battle, and TM76, which contains
Stealth Rock. Stealth Rock isn't really too good of a move to teach your
Pokemon in-game, so I wouldn't advice teaching it to any of your Pokemon for
now.

Heal up at the Pokemon Center, save your game, and then head back to the
Oreburgh Gate. Rival will bump into you and tell you that the next Gym in in
Eterna City. The path to Eterna City from Route 207 requires a Bicycle, so
it's impossible to take that Route, but you can take the path from Jubilife
City to get there instead.

So, looks like it's time to go back to Jubilife City!

DETOUR ALERT: You can take a quick detour to Route 207 to the north of
Oreburgh City to find two Poke Balls and catch a Machop. (See section 5.2.1.)

On your way through the Oreburgh Gate, you can take the north path and use
Rock Smash to find a basement area with two items (TM70, which contains Flash,
and Stardust, which you can sell for cash). You can do more here later on, so
keep that in mind.

Not really much for you to see or do here. You can catch a Machop and pick up
two Poke Balls, but that's about it. You will be up on that ledge later on.

(_| s5.2.2. Jubilife City |__________________________________________________)

Be sure to heal up your Pokemon, because you're about to have a Trainer
battle. Make your way north when you're ready and you will find Dawn and the
Professor with two people dressed in blue. They will reveal themselves as Team
Galactic, and will engage you in a battle.

This is your first Double Battle, although it's really easy. For those of you
that are unfamiliar with Double Battling, you basically just get to select
which Pokemon you're attacking now, and there are two Pokemon on each side of
the field. Fortunately, Dawn's Pokemon is way stronger than either of the Team
Galactic Grunts, plus you still have your Pokemon, so these two should be a
piece of cake.

After the battle, they'll run off. After some more dialogue, the two will
leave, but you'll then be approached by another man who tells you that the TV
Station is now open and will give you a Fashion Case. You can collect little
accessories that you can use to dress up your Pokemon with inside of the TV
Station.

Before leaving, you might as well check out the TV Station. Inside, on the
first floor, you can fight against random Trainers in the karaoke corner.
These Trainers have fairly high level Pokemon in comparison to what you've
been fighting against, so be careful.

One of the Trainers (more like two, really) you can fight are the
Interviewers.

Grass-type attacks are 4x effective on Wooper, but Marill has a deadly Rollout
attack that can become a problem if you don't KO it right away. Definitely
focus your attacks on only one Pokemon at a time to make the fight easier in
the long run. After winning, you'll get a TON of money.

You can find the Dress Up Room on the 2nd Floor. It's in the room in the wall
(by the stairs). Before entering, though, talk to the man in the hall to
receive a Mask of your Starting Pokemon for your Accessories. Now you can go
into the room, and just talk to the guy guarding the door, and then you'll get
to choose a Pokemon to dress up. Choose one, and then dress it up! After
dressing it up, you will need to give it a title, and then it will be
displayedo n the wall.

On the 3rd Floor, you can find a whole ton of Records and stuff. The 4th Floor
has absolutely nothing of interest, so don't even bother.

Whenever you're done dressing up your Pokemon and whatnot, head back to where
you encountered the Team Galactic dudes and head northbound back to Route 204
(North).

Outside, you'll be in the northern, elevated half of Route 204. There are some
Trainers to fight, as well as an Awakening and TM09 (Bullet Seed) to pick up,
so tend to all of these before making your way north to Floaroma Town.

So many flowers in this town, I mean, wow! This is the first town that Berries
will be available to you. All you need to do to pick a Berry is to go up to
the plant and press A, and you'll receive a Berry. I'm not going to list the
locations of any of the Berries you get in this Walkthrough (at least not for
now), so just pick 'em and go, ok?

There's not a whole ton to do in this town right now, but there are some items
you can pick up. For starters, go inside of the red house that's directly
north of the entrance to town and talk to the girl inside. Answer yes to her
question, and she will give you TM88 (Pluck).

Inside of the Flower Shop, talk to the lady on the left to receive the
Sprayduck, which you can use to water Berries to make them produce more when
you pick them. If you talk to the lady on the right, she will give you a
random berry once per day. Lastly, talking to the blonde-haired lady will let
you purchase accessories for your Pokemon for Dress Up by exchanging Berries.

Pay no attention to the Galactic Goons at the northwest section of the screen.

Walk to the east, and you'll see a little girl who will stop you and cry about
how her Papa is being held at the Valley Windworks and how the mean spacemen
won't let her in. How awful. You'll see two Galactic Goons guarding the
bridge, and, as expected, they won't let you pass. So, let's help the girl
out, and make your way over to the Valley Windworks for now.

Talk to the Galactic Grunt blocking the entrance to the Power Plant and he'll
start a fight with you. After beating him, he'll taunt that you need a Key in
order to get inside, and will enter, locking the door behind him. Swell.
Fortunately for you, there's some Galactic Goons back in Floaroma Town. Return
there and go to the Northwest corner of town - where the Galactic Grunts were
- and enter the Floaroma Meadow.

You'll see two Galactic Grunts threatening an old man, insisting that they
"must have" his honey to "attract Pokemon in great numbers." Approach them,
and they'll both start a fight with you, one after the other. After beating
them, they'll run off, and the old man will give you the Works Key that they
dropped. Hmm, I wonder what that could be used for? He also gives you some
Honey.

You can either use Honey outside of battle - in a place where you can
encounter wild Pokemon - to start a fight against a wild Pokemon immediately,
similarly to using the Sweet Scent attack outside of battle.

Or, you can slather the Honey on the golden trees that you'll see all over
the place, and then come back in between six and nine hours to (hopefully)
find the tree shaking.

The tree will then have a random Pokemon from this list, with some Pokemon
being rarer than others:
   - Wurmple (common)
   - Silcoon (Diamond-only)
   - Cascoon (Pearl-only)
   - Combee (uncommon)
   - Burmy (uncommon)
   - Cherubi (uncommon)
   - Aipom (rare)
   - Heracross (rare)
   - Munchlax (very rare)

If you wait longer than 24 hours, the Honey on the tree will lose its
potency, and whatever Pokemon would have been on it will be gone.

Also, saving your game and restarting it has no effect on the Pokemon that is
on the Honey tree, but it can affect the wild Pokemon's level and gender if
you reset, so that is useful if you're looking for, say, a female Combee.

Now that you have the Works Key, return to the Valley Windworks and open the
door.

in, and will then run off. Follow the left path, and fight the Grunt blocking
the door. Fight the other Grunt in the next room if you want, but save your
strength, because you're going to have a Boss Battle up ahead.

Approach the person in the red hair, and she'll introduce herself as the Team
Galactic Commander, Mars, and then say a bunch of stuff about Team Galactic,
followed by challenging you to a fight. If she wins, you'll leave; if you win,
they'll leave.

Watch out! Her Zubat knows Toxic, which will Badly Poison your Pokemon, making
it take more damage from Poison with every turn that passes. Her Purugly, the
big cat thingy, is very quick and will usually enter the fight using Fake Out
to inflict some damage and force you to skip a turn. Administer Potions if you
get weak, but otherwise just use your strongest attacks against it. It has an
Oran Berry on it, which will heal 10 HP when it gets weak. The good news is
you'll get a massive 627 EXP for beating it!

After beating her, she and the other Team Galactic members will run off and
the nerdy technician guy will tell you some stuff until his daughter runs in,
telling him that he needs a shower. Hahaha!

Now you can cross the bridge on Route 205 that was blocked off. Time to return
there! (After healing your Pokemon, of course.)

Now that you can finally cross the bridge, you are able to explore the
important part of Route 205. Trainers, Trainers, everywhere! There are plenty
of Trainers along the way north, so be sure to fight them to help get some
EXP. There's also a few items you can pick up as well.

Eventually, you will cross another bridge (this one over a cliff, not water)
and will find a red house shortly afterward. Talk to the lady inside of the
house to conveniently heal your Pokemon. Also, south of the house, you can
find a Super Potion.

Whenever you're ready, enter the forest to the north.

When you enter, this one chick, Cheryl, will ask that you help her through the
forest because she's worried about Team Galactic, and then will join your
party. Yep, every encounter in this forest will be a Double Battle. She uses a
Level 15 Chansey that knows Egg Bomb and Softboiled. Egg Bomb does a
surprisingly high amount of damage, actually. Anyway, how wild Double Battles
work is you can only catch throw a Poke Ball when there is one Pokemon left.
Chansey can unfortunately make this a bit of a burden, because it will often
times Egg Bomb the wrong Pokemon and use Softboiled even if it doesn't really
need to.

One interesting point is that you will be fully healed after every single
battle while Cheryl is with you, which makes Training here pretty cool,
actually. And, Chansey doesn't seem to leech any of the EXP you get from
fights.

This place is actually somewhat of a maze, so I'll help with directions. Start
by going east, then north, battling the Bug Catcher and Lass. Keep going along
the path, until you find two Psychics. They both have Abras with Hidden Power,
but they're pretty easy. Then, keep going south until you see two Bug
Catchers. If you want the EXP, fight 'em the go north at the next branch;
otherwise, go north and take the first right. Then, go north through the
Psychics if you want to fight them, or west if you would rather not. Either
way, make your way to the northeastern area of the forest, then go north. Now
head west, a bit more north (some Honey is west, though), then east and Cheryl
will thank you for taking her out of the forest and leave. Too bad.

Another bridge, and some Fisherman to fight. The one with the 6 Magikarp
really ticks me off. There's a Fisherman like this in EVERY GAME and it's
really annoying because they give garbage for EXP. Ugh.

You can also pick up a Potion in the muddy area south of the exit of the
bridge.

Ah, finally, the city of your second Gym Battle. Before you rush to the Gym,
you might want to take some time to check the town out, because there's a bit
to do here.

You can change your Pokemon's Nickname by talking to the old man inside of the
tall building next to the Poke Mart (southern side of town). Also, inside of
the same building, you can trade a Buizel (which you can catch just outside of
the city) for a Chatot.

You can also pick up the Explorer Kit by talking to the old man in the
building to the right of the Pokemon Center. You can use this to dig into
Sinnoh Underground, which is a large mini-game where you can dig for items to
help build your Secret Base, play games with other people over a local DS
connection, and dig for buried artifacts like fossils.

Two items of interest that you can pick up in the Underground right now are
the Skull Fossil (Diamond) and the Shield Fossil (Pearl). You can take these
fossils to the Museum in Oreburgh City to turn them into Cranidos and Shieldon
respectively.

If you explore the northern area of town, a gothic-looking chick will stop you
and notice your Pokedex. She'll recognize you working for Professor Rowan,
introduce herself as Cynthia, and will talk about how she's been investigating
Pokemon mythology. She'll eventually give you HM01 (Cut), and then leave. You
can't use this yet, though; you have to beat the Eterna City Gym Leader first.

Further along that path, you'll find a shop that sells those Energy/Herb items
that decrease the happiness of your Pokemon. They're cheaper than the normal
healing items, but they come at the price of lowering your Pokemon's
happiness. Chances are, you won't really care about this, unless you're trying
to raise a Pokemon like Budew, so you can buy some of these items as a cheap
alternative to regular items. Buying a few Revival Herbs is not a bad idea,
especially since Revives are hard to get at this point in the game.

If you keep going, you'll eventually stumble upon a Route with some Trainers,
a cave and an item, which is covered in section 5.2.13.

You can catch two pretty useful Pokemon here: Meditite and Ponyta. Ponyta is
particularly helpful if you're having difficulties in Eterna Gym.

You can Rock Smash the rock by the Hiker to find another Trainer with a pretty
strong Hoothoot. But south of her is TM12 (Taunt).

There's also nothing to find inside of the cave for now except for a Revive
hidden in the rock near the door (examine the rock to find it). You'll need
Strength (much later in the game) in order to proceed any further.

Talk to Gardenia, the Gym Leader standing by the door, and she'll tell you
that you have to take her challenge before battling her, which consists of
finding four Trainers.

The first Trainer is located by the Gym Leader's area (north of start). You
can find her in the first branch to the left, then moving south a little bit.

The second one can be found by making your way down the left-most corridor, at
the dead-end.

The third is hiding behind the three small trees near the entrance to the
room.

And lastly, the final Trainer, is in the very northeastern-most corner, which
is accessable by taking the first right from the entrance all the way to the
end.

After defeating all four of them, Gardenia will appear in the northern area of
the room. Heal up, save your game, and get ready to earn your second Gym
Badge!

Cherubi is pretty easy. You should be able to take it out with little
difficulty.

Turtwig knows Reflect, which will half the effectiveness of your Physical-
based attacks for 5 turns. Plus, it has pretty high Defense.

Her Roserade is quite tricky to beat, though, because it's both strong and at
a high level. I had my Onix use Screech against it until it was Knocked Out
with Magical Leaf (and the Reflect wore off). Roserade likes to start out by
Paralyzing things with Stun Spore, so watch out and administer Parlyz Heals or
Cheri Berries as required.

After beating her, you will receive the Forest Badge, which lets you use Cut
outside of battle, and makes it so traded Pokemon up to Level 30 will obey
you. She'll also give you another present, TM86 (Grass Knot). Woohoo!

Building (the black building to the north of the Pokemon Center). You can also
use Cut on the bush in the northeast part of the lot to access a path that
will take you to TM46, Thief.

After getting that, enter the black building. You'll need to fight the two
Grunts guarding the stairs (Double Battle). On the second floor, there will be
lots of Galactic Goons on computers. The first and third one from the left
will fight you if you talk to them. Go up to the third floor, fight the Grunt

getting his Pokemon back and will invite you to come to the Bicycle Shop.

Leave the building and go to the Bicycle Shop. Talk to the guy that you just
saved and he'll give you the Bicycle. To use the Bicycle, you have to be
outside or in a cave. You can press B to change gears for different speeds and
such. Now run far south into the building to enter Cycling Road.

ride down. They use a variety of types, so just kind of use whatever works
well on them. You'll get a good amount of money, as well as EXP, for beating
all of them, so I would definitely do so.

Eventually, you'll reach the bottom of Cycling Road. You can talk to the
blonde-hair girl in the station to receive a Flag for your Accessory Case (can
be used for Dress Up).

Route 206 is right outside of the building.

In order to access all of this stuff, you'll need to use Cut on the bushes to
the east of the Cycling Road exit. It's completely optional, though, so just
head south if you don't mind missing out on a chance to catch some new
Pokemon.

In the area, you can find several Pokemon that you haven't seen before (or, at
the very least, haven't encountered in the wild). Bronzor is a pretty hard-to-
find Pokemon in this Route, but makes a great tank. Ponyta is also a really
good Fire-type Pokemon, and if you started with either Piplup or Turtwig, you
will probably feel lacking in the Fire department (no joke there). You can
also pick up the Poison Barb to help boost the power of your Pokemon's Poison-
type attacks.

Near the back of Route 206, you'll find a cave. The cave is called the Wayward
Cave, and unless you're feeling like exploring a frustrating dungeon maze
without too great of a reward, I'd advise staying away from it. If you are
really feeling up to it, please see Section 6.8. about the Wayward Cave. On
the bright side, you can stop inside to have a better chance of finding a
Bronzor, in case you were looking for one.

Whenever you're done in Route 207, just return to the exit of Cycling Road,
take a few steps south, and you're already in Route 207.

As you enter the Route, Dawn will come up to you and ask you to pick her left
or right hand. Regardless of which hand you pick, she'll give you the Vs.
Seeker, which is almost exactly like the Vs. Seeker from FireRed and
LeafGreen. It's a really nice item to use to fight Trainers again and again to
get lots of money and EXP.

She'll also give you the Dowsing Machine app for your Pokektch similar to the
Item Finder in previous games. To use it, change the Poketch until you see
crosshairs, then touch the screen. If there are any hidden items nearby, they
will show up as a dot on your Poketch. Just keep moving around until the dot
is in the middle of the crosshairs, then take one step away and press A on the
previous spot (as if there were an item there; remember, pressing A while you
are still ON the spot won't do you any good), and you'll get it. You can pick
up a Revive in this way by doing that right after you get the Dowsing Machine.

There are now some optional areas you can go to at this point. You don't have
to visit any of them, but you might want to check them out.

   | JUBILIFE CITY |
   `--.------------'------------------------------------------------------.
      | You can return to the Poketch Company Building and talk to the    |
      | President (on the first floor, by the receptionist) to receive    |

      | In the basement of the cave (requires Rock Smash), there's a ramp |
      | that you can use your Bike to get across. Make sure that your     |
      | Bicycle's Gear is set to Speed (the fast mode; you'll know), then |
      | ride it across the ramp-like thingy and you can get TM31 (Brick   |
      | Break). There is also a place that you can Surf here, but that's  |
      | not something you need to worry about now. Just remember it.      |

      | After the cave, there is a bush that can be Cut by the two twins. |
      | You can find a girl back there who will give you TM78, Captivate. |

      | Immediately after exiting Eterna Forest, head south and Cut the   |
      | bushes blocking the way, and you'll be in the outside area of     |
      | Hakutai Forest. Follow the path and you'll eventually find a girl |
      | who will give you an Accessory. You can also find the             |
      | Silverpowder (raises the power of Bug-type attacks) and TM82      |
      | (Sleep Talk) in the rocky area.                                   |
      |___________________________________________________________________|

   | ETERNA FOREST |

      | Return to the back part of the forest and you can use Cut on the  |
      | bushes blocking the path that was previous unaccessable. There    |
      | will be a large house in the back, and you can pick up an Ether.  |
      | You can enter the house to be inside of the Old Chateau.          |
      |                                                                   |
      | Please see the Old Chateau section for info on what's inside.     |
      |___________________________________________________________________|

Remember, all of these locations are optional, so you do not have to visit any
of them that you don't want to.

Continue to the east and proceed to fight a handful of Trainer Battles, one of
which being a Double Battle. Make your way to the cave entrance on the eastern
side and proceed to enter Mt. Coronet.

The cave itself is pretty straightforward, although you can catch Meditites,
Machops, and even Chingling. If you don't have a Fighting-type Pokemon yet and
you have room on your team for one, either Meditite or Machop would make a
good choice.

Head south a bit, and approach the stairs. As you approach the stairs, a man
with blue hair will walk towards you, and will then talk to you about Sinnoh
and Mt. Coronet. He'll then leave.

There really isn't anything much left to do here for the time being, although
after you get Surf later on in the game, you'll want to come back and explore
the areas blocked off by water. The exit is on the east side of the cave, as
expected, and is pretty easy to find.

        '-----------------'

On the other side of Mt. Coronet, Route 208, there are some more Trainers
for you to fight, and three of their Pokemon should be entirely new sights to
see (Combee, Mime Jr., and Bonsly), so you will probably want to fight the
said Trainers to add them to your Pokedex. You can pick up an X Speed by
taking the first bridge north, after fighting the Black Belt. You can also
pick up a Poke Ball if you have a Pokemon with Rock Smash on you after
crossing the second bridge to the east.

After crossing the bridges, you'll reach some tall grass with some more
Trainers in it. You can catch Psyducks and Bibarels, which are the evolution
of Bidoofs, here. You can also talk to the Black Belt in the southeast corner
of the tall grass to receive the Odd Keystone.

There's also a house in the area, by a patch of berries. Inside of the house,
you can talk to the Berry Master (the old man) to receive a random Berry once
per day. If you talk to the little girl and answer yes to the question she
asks, she'll give you a new Poketch Application, the Berry Searcher. The Berry
Searcher will show you a mini map of Sinnoh and will point out any berry
patches with berries in them. The lady in the house will also sell you
different kinds of mulch that apparently helps with growing berries. Not quite
sure exactly how yet, though.

After you're done here, make your way through the building to the east and
enter Hearthome City.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.3.7. Hearthome City |_________________________________________________)

As you enter town, you'll stop a Buneary from feeling the town and its Trainer
will chase after it. She'll thank you for stopping it, introduce herself as
Keira, one of the Contest Judges, and put the Buneary back in its Poke Ball,
inviting you to come to the Contest Hall so she can thank you.

Hearthome City is a pretty large city. It's all about Pokemon Contests, and
all of the inhabitants are crazy over them. Some of them have even traveled
from Hoenn to participate in the Contests!

Inside of the Pokemon Fan Club, which is located directly to the east of the
Poke Mart (it has a red roof), are some Pokemon fanatics. Talk to the
President (the guy in the suit) and you'll receive the Poffin Case, which
allows you to make Poffins (Bread made from berries; think Poke Blocks from
R/S/E). You can find the Poffin House in the house adjacent to the Poke Mart.
This is where you go to make Poffins. Unfortunately, I do not have any
information on the minigame, so you're on your own there for the time being.

Enter the building next to the Pokemon Fan Club and go up the elevator. Talk
to the girl up there, and she will give you the Shell Bell, a very useful Held
Item which restores your Pokemon's HP whenever it damages a Pokemon. Very
helpful.

Another noteworthy mention is Bebe, the Bill/Lanette of Diamond and Pearl.
You can find her in the house to the right of the Pokemon Center. She doesn't
really give you anything after talking to her, but when accessing the PC, the
Pokemon Box system will now show up as "Bebe's PC".

Talk to the person with purple hair standing outside of the Contest Hall. She
will introduce herself as the Hearthome City Gym Leader, Fantina. However,
she'll just leave, and won't even return to the Gym for now.

Enter the Contest Hall, and you'll see your Mother and Keira. Keira will give
you the Glitter Powder Accessory, and your Mother will give you a Tuxedo (or a
Dress if you are playing as the female character). Keira will then leave
toward the waiting room, and then your Mother will leave out the entrance.

You can try out a whole ton of fun Contest stuff if you want to at this point.
There's a lot more you can do with contests, so check out the Contest section!

As you try to leave Hearthome City, Rival will appear and will challange you
to a battle.

Looks like he's caught a few more Pokemon. Fortunately, you should have a
pretty fair team of Pokemon yourself now, so you should be able to handle
whatever he throws at you.

After beating him, he'll tell you about the next Gym, which is in Veilstone
City, and will then run off.

On your way out of town (to the east), talk to the Hiker guy, and if you have
room in your Party, he will give you an Egg. Eggs hatch into a Level 1 Pokemon
after a certain number of steps. This one in particular will hatch into a
Happiny Egg after 10,496 steps, so you might want to carry it with you if you
have room for it. You can evolve your Happiny into a Chansey if you use an
Oval Stone on it while it's happy.

Before leaving east, you might want to check out Amity Square to the north to
pick up some useful items.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.3.8. Amity Square |___________________________________________________)

In the Amity Square, you get to spend some quality time with one of the cute
Pokemon in your party. You will need to have one of several "cutesy" Pokemon
in your party in order to get in.

A list of all of the Pokemon you can bring into Amity Square are:
   - Pikachu
   - Clefairy
   - Psyduck
   - Pachirisu
   - Happiny
   - Buneary
   - Drifloon
   - Jigglypuff (after National Dex)
   - Torchic (after National Dex)
   - Skitty (after National Dex)
   - Shroomish (after National Dex)

The receptionist will hold onto all of your other Pokemon and let that
Pokemon follow you around. You can talk to your Pokemon by facing it and
pressing A, as you would anything else, and there's a chance that it will give
you an Accessory for your Accessory Case.

There are also a few helpful items scattered around the area. You can find
TM45 (Attract) in the northern part of the field, and you can find TM43
(Secret Power) in the southern part. In the northeastern corner, there will be
two stone buildings that you can enter. The one on the left has an Amulet Coin
hidden inside, and you can find a Spooky Plate outside of the building on
the right.

Interesting mix of wild Pokemon here. Mime Jr. is a popular one, although
probably not that great in battle. Plus, you can catch the evolutions of
Bidoof and Starly here, which both make decent additions to your roster if you
don't have them already.

Be sure to talk to the Fisherman fishing on the dock and answer his question
with "Yes" to receive the Good Rod. Now you can catch Goldeen and Barboach and
stuff, as well as Level 15 - 20 Magikarps. Woohoo! This makes it really easy
to evolve it into Gyarados if you decide you want that on your team.

Fight your way through the assortment of Trainers along the road, picking up
items if you want to. TM47 (Steel Wing) can be found behind a bush that you
can Cut down near the Lovey Couple.

There's also a Calcium in the area, but it's a bit tricky to get. On the left-
side of the Young Couple, there is a dirt hill that you can climb with your
Bicycle (on Speed Gear). However, rocks are in the way, so you will have to
build up speed and then turn at just the right time in order to make it up the
hill.

Near the end of Route 209, there is a strange obelisk called the Lost Tower
that you can enter. It is similar to the Pokemon Tower in Red/Blue/Yellow in
the fact that it's where fallen Pokemon are put to rest. You do not actually
have to check this out right now, but inside is HM04 (Strength) which you will
need at some point, so I'm going to cover it. If you don't visit it now, be
sure to come back here after you get the sixth badge.

        '-----------------'

There's Zubats and Gastly up here, as well as Golbats on the upper floors. If
you didn't stop by the Old Chateau, now's as good a time as any to catch a
Gastly.

The Tower is actually pretty straightforward. Just climb your way to the fifth
floor, fighting the Trainers as you make your way to the top. There's some
handy items along the way, too, such as the Oval Stone, a Revive, and TM27
(Return).

On the top floor, you will find two old ladies. Talking to the one on the left
will give you HM04, which contains Strength. You won't be able to use this
until you get the third badge, though. The lady on the left will give you a
Cleanse Tag.

Exit the tower, and head north to reach Solaceon Town.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.3.11. Solaceon Town |_________________________________________________)

Yeehaw! Solaceon Town is full of cowboys and cowgirls. Hehe. You can find the
Pokemon Day Care (a.k.a. Breeding Center) here, so you can finally breed your
Pokemon to get Eggs. You can also buy Dusk Balls here in the Poke Mart (the
girl on the left) for $1000 each. These work great in caves and during night-
time, although they're expensive for right now.

At the Day Care, you can drop off up to two of your Pokemon. These Pokemon
will gain 1 EXP for every step travelled. You will have to pay $100 to take
the Pokemon out of Day Care, though, as well as an additional $100 for every
Level the Pokemon gained while it was there. So how do you get a Pokemon Egg?
Well, first, a boy Pokemon and a girl Pokemon have to like each other a lot,
and then... *ahem* Ok, enough breeding jokes. To get a Pokemon Egg, you need
to drop off a Male Pokemon and a Female Pokemon that are both in the same Egg
Group (like, for instance, Bidoof and Buneary are both in the Field Egg Group,
so they can bear an Egg). Then, after you've taken a hundred steps or so, the
old man outside of the Day Care will be facing right instead of down, and, if
you have room in your party, you can talk to him to receive an Egg. The Egg
will eventually hatch into a Level 1 Pokemon of the Female's species.

NOTE: After dropping off two Pokemon here, a man will appear inside of the Day
Care. Talk to him, and he will give you the Day Care Checker Application for
your Poketch. It shows the two Pokemon you have in Day Care, their Levels, and
Gender. Plus, if there's an Egg waiting for you there, it will be shown on the
screen.

Anyway, enough of the birds and the Beedrills.

You can talk with the man near the center of town and he'll give you the
Pokemon History Application for your Poketch. It's nothing too fancy; it just
shows you the last 16 Pokemon that you caught, hatched, or evolved. Not overly
useful, but I'm sure it has its uses.

The "Pokemon Pro" in the house next to the Pokemon Center will ask you to show
him a random Pokemon. If you do, he will give you a Heal Ball. He'll ask to
see a different Pokemon each day, so stop by every now and then to see what
he's looking to view.

Behind the Pokemon Center, to the right, there are some cliffs that you can
jump down to reach three locations: two houses, and the Solaceon Ruins. Don't
bother with the first cliff, so jump down the second one and enter the house.
Talk with the lady inside, and she'll give you the Sticker Case, which lets
you put cool stickers on your Pokemon's Poke Balls ... but not until later.

And lastly, if you jump down the cliff to the far right, you will find a cave.
Inside the cave is the Solaceon Ruins. Visiting the Solaceon Ruins is entirely
optional, although you should probably stop by so you can see Unown (#114) for
your Pokedex. If you wish to see information on the Solaceon Ruins, please
check out the section for "Solaceon Ruins" in the Optional Areas section of
the walkthrough. You can get a Nugget, Rare Candy, Mind Plate, and a Odd
Incense down there, as well as catch Unown.

Whenever you're done here, head north to Route 210.

`-------| Great Ball      |
        '-----------------'

The grass around here is taller than the usual tall grass you've seen. The bad
news is you can't ride your Bicycle through it. The good news is... well,
there's a new Pokemon for you to catch inside: Chansey! Plus, unlike the
previous Pokemon games, Chansey isn't quite as freakishly rare to encounter.
Plus, on top of that, all of the wild Pokemon in the area (except Geodude, I
guess) give a great amount of EXP. Like 350+ per fight. Chansey also gives
over 600, which really adds up.

Use your Bicycle to ride up the muddy path by the jogger, and then follow the
cliff over to the girl staring to the north. Talk to her, and she'll give you
TM51 (Roost). You can also get a Great Ball on one of the hills that you need
the Bicycle for.

One point of mention: the two Pokemon Breeders Happinys each give over 960 EXP
for beating them, so they are certainly worth fighting, and I would advise
using your Vs. Seeker on them to fight them a few times if you're looking for
some EXP (although, it is probably faster fighting the Ponytas in the area).

There's also a Pokemon Cafe near the end of the Route. Inside, there are some
more Trainers for you to fight if you talk to them.

You can also buy Moomoo Milk for $500 each by talking to the lady at the
counter. That's a really good deal if you're in need of some healing items,
because it heals more than Super Potions do (heals 100HP) and it even costs
less. The downside is that you have to buy each one individually, so it takes
longer.

Outside of the Cafe, the path to the north is blocked off by Psyducks. But
that's ok, because you need to head east to Route 215 anyway.

level than the last area's, so make sure that you handle them with caution.
You can also encounter wild Kadabras here, which make an excellent Psychic
Pokemon for your party. They're a bit of a pain to catch, though, so be
prepared to waste up to a dozen Poke Balls on just one (assuming you got it
down to under 1/3 health).

Near the beginning of the route, you can use Cut on a bush and then enter a
fight against Black Belt. Afterwards, you can pick up the Fist Plate nearby.

The guy on the way to the bridge will give you TM66 (Payback) if you talk to
him. You can also get TM34 (Shock Wave) after passing the large field of tall
grass by using Cut on another bush. Lastly, there's a Full Heal near the end
of the Route.

(_| s5.3.14. Veilstone City |________________________________________________)

Now here's a pretty big city with some things to do in it. Veilstone City is
actually a lot like Celadon City from FireRed and LeafGreen... it has a
Department Store and Game Corner and everything! And, from the looks of it,
the evil organization trying to take over the world (in this case, Team
Galactic) is also around town.

The first place you will probably want to check out is the Department Store,
which can be found on the northern side of town, up on a ridge by some other
houses. Inside, there are 4 floors of shops, along with a roof, as per usual
of Department Stores in Pokemon Games.

Talk to the old lady with a hat on on the first floor of the Depot and she
will give you a Mask of Dawn's starting Pokemon for your Accessory Case.

On the second floor of the Department Store, talk to the bottom lady at the
counter, and she will give you the Counter Application for your Poketch. It's
a pretty simple Application: you just press the + button on the screen to add
one to the counter. This is handy for keeping track of how many Pokemon you
have fought for, say, EV Training or something.

On the roof (fifth floor), talk to one of the big guys and he will give you a
Sticky Barb.

Anyway, other than the Department Store, there's also the Game Corner and the
Gym. The Game Corner can be found on the southeastern side of town, although
you will need to pick up the Coin Case before you can play the Slot Machines
or get any Coins. You can find the Coin Case by talking to the jester inside
of the second house near the Gym (southwestern side of town) and correctly
guessing which hand he has it in.

Inside of the house next door, you can talk with the lady there and she'll
offer to give your Pokemon a massage that will raise its happiness. I'm pretty
sure that this can be done once per day. You can also talk to the guy outside
of the two houses to receive TM63 (Embargo).

The big building on the northeastern side of town is the Galactic Veilstone
Building. You can't get far into it for now, but you can pick up a PP Up on
the left side of the outside of the building.

The Game Corner is the flashy looking house on the southeastern side of town.
You can talk to all of the people inside (after getting the Coin Case) to
squeeze 70 free Coins out of them. You'll have to buy/win any more, though.
You can buy 50 Coins for $1000, or 500 Coins for $10000 by talking to the lady
at the counter. To play the Slot Machines, go up to one, and then press X to
put in three Coins. You can either press X again or press Down and the reels
will start spinning. Then, you can press Y to stop the first reel, B to stop
the second reel, and A to stop the third reel, and you'll receive the payout
as listed on the bottom corners depending on what you get. A type of Poke Ball
may also appear on the bottom, indicating that you will have better luck and
the slots will be sticky to a certain degree depending on which Poke Ball is
down there.

Next door, you can talk to the lady at the counter to redeem your Coins for
the following prizes:

 ,--------------------------------.
(  GAME CORNER PRIZES (in COINS)   )
 `-.---------------------.------.-`
   | Silk Scarf          | 1000 |
   | Wide Lens           | 1000 |
   | Zoom Lens           | 1000 |
   | Metronome           | 1000 |
   | TM90 (Substitute)   | 2000 |
   | TM58 (Endure)       | 2000 |
   | TM75 (Swords Dance) | 4000 |
   | TM32 (Double Team)  | 4000 |
   | TM44 (Rest)         | 6000 |
   | TM89 (U-Turn)       | 6000 |
   | TM10 (Hidden Power) | 6000 |
   | TM27 (Return)       | 8000 |
   | TM21 (Frustration)  | 8000 |
   | TM35 (Flamethrower) |10000 |
   | TM24 (Thunderbolt)  |10000 |
   | TM13 (Ice Beam)     |10000 |
   | TM29 (Psychic)      |10000 |
   | TM74 (Gyro Ball)    |15000 |
   | TM68 (Giga Impact)  |20000 |
   '---------------------'------'

Looks like the prices on the good TMs went up. Ugh.

Anyway, I guess now would be a good time to heal up and earn your third Gym
Badge. The Gym is located north of the house that you got the Coin Case at, in
the southwestern area of town. On your way there, Dawn will talk to you and
then run off to the Department Store.

This Gym's puzzle I found rather fun, although I could see where it could
become rather frustrating. Basically, you have to push the sliders on either
side and they will slide around. Certain positions of the sliders will block
your access to certain areas and allow you access to others. You will need to
get the two sliders on the very top pushed, which requires you to form a path
on each of the sides to get back there. It's hard to explain, but just keep at
it, and you'll get the jist of it.

When you get to the end, you'll find Maylene. Remember, if you leave the
building, the puzzle will reset, so consider your party's status before going
back to heal.

      | - Buizel       Lv 7 |
      '---------------------'

Ok, my Pokemon were extremely strong at this point because I got a bit carried
away with training. If you have a Staraptor, you will completely own Maylene,
period. Use Aerial Ace against the Meditite and Machoke, and then Close Combat
against Lucario. But, that's only assuming you have a Level 34 Staraptor. Even
Staravia will be at a nice advantage, although not quite as effective. If you
don't have either, the fight will be a bit more challenging.

You would think that Psychic-type Pokemon would be effective against a
Fighting-type Gym Leader, although Machoke is the only one of her Pokemon
that's weak to Psychic due to clever typing (Psychic resists Psychic, and so
does Steel, so both Meditite and Lucario only take normal damage). Golbat or
Haunter would do nicely here if you have one trained. Otherwise, keep your HP
up, and keep any Rock-, Normal-, and Steel-types away. Lucario is the main
threat, due to its high level and resistance to a large amount of types.

When you win, she'll give you the Cobble Badge, which lets you use Fly outside
of battle. She will also give you TM60, which contains Drain Punch.

Clefairy does an awesome job at doing nothing productive. You will find it
using Metronome and Sing a lot. Sing can be helpful, but Metronome isn't most
of the time.

After beating them, they'll run into the Warehouse and order them to lock the
doors. Dawn will then tell you to go to Pastoria City.

Go inside of the Warehouse and, although you won't be able to proceed any
further, you can pick up HM02 (Fly) in there to assist your travelling needs.

Make your way south, fighting the Trainers along the way. Some of these
Trainers can be fought in either Single or Double Battle, depending on which
direction you challenge them, and the Policemen will only fight you at night.
Use common sense, there. You can find TM11 (Sunny Day) near the Gentleman and
Socialite, but you need Cut in order to access it. You can also find an Elixir
further down the path.

When you find the field of tall grass, you will be nearby the gates to the
Pokemon Mansion. In the courtyard, you can fight against the Rich Boy and Rich
Girl, and further along the path you'll find the Pokemon Mansion. You can
enter it, don't worry. Just mind your manners!

You can check out info on the Pokemon Mansion, and the Trophy Garden contained
inside, in section 6.10. of this Walkthrough.

As you enter the southern section of Route 212, you'll notice that it will
begin to rain. This will carry on into battles, too, so all Water-type attacks
are going to have boosted power, and Fire-type attacks will be weakened. Keep
that in mind if you are going to be using any of those attacks.

There are a over a dozen Trainers to fight along the way, so you'll be bound
to gain lots of EXP if you fight them all.

After some trekking, you'll reach an interesting area where you'll see narrow
paths suspended in the air. In order to get across them, you have ride your
Bicycle over the narrow path. Don't worry; you can't fall. Help yourself to
TM62 (Silver Wind) which is found across one of the narrow bridges.

There's a bridge (on the water) nearby with some Fisherman on it that you'll
need to cross. The Fisherman are totally optional to fight, as most usually
are, but I would still recommend it to squeeze some more EXP into your
Pokemon.

After the bridge, you will find two things of interest: a little house, and
what appears to be a muddy swamp. You can redeem Shards, which you can find
Underground, for TMs here.

On to the swamp. You won't be able to ride your Bike in the swamp, obviously,
so you'll have to go on foot. You might also run into a mud pit, where your
character will just stop in their movements. To get out of one, you'll need to
wriggle your way out by trying to walk in various directions until you
eventually break free.

Near the end of the swamp, you can find TM06 (Toxic). You'll also find another
narrow bridge overhead shortly afterward. You can pick up a Revive if you walk
under the bridge (it looks like its surrounded by forest, but there's really a
clear path), and you can pick up an X Special and a Zinc by riding your
Bicycle across the narrow bridge and then following the path (a Scientist and
Parasol Lady are along the way).

Just a bit further east and a little north of the swamp, you'll find another
seemingly empty swamp (HINT: use your Dowsing Machine Application!) and a path
east over to your destination: Pastoria City.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.4.4. Pastoria City |__________________________________________________)

Pastoria City is home to the Great Marsh game (see section 6.11. for full
coverage) as well as your fourth Gym Battle. Other than that, there really
isn't too much special to the town.

You can speak with the lady inside of the first house from the eastern
entrance to receive a random rare Berry once per day.

The Parasol Lady by the Great Marsh will give you another Accessory for your
Accessory Case: a Mask of whatever Pokemon your Rival started with. Woohoo!?
You'll also see a Team Galactic Goon lurking outside of the Safari Zone. Ack,
looks like trouble has even reached down here.

Pastoria City's Poke Mart has an inferior selection of items in comparison to
Veilstone City's Department Store, but it does have both Dusk Balls and Quick
Balls for sale. The Quick Balls are particularly handy for catching Pokemon in
the first few turns of the fight, and make a great type of Poke Ball to use if
you just like to try and quickly catch a Pokemon or don't want to risk
knocking it out.

The house by the water is the Move Relearner's house. Talk to the guy inside
and he will offer to reteach a move that one of your Pokemon can learn by
Level Up. However, it comes at a price of one Heart Scale, which can be found
in Sinnoh Underground.

You will need to go into the Great Marsh at some point and talk to the person
with green hair right near the entrance in order to get HM05 (Defog).
Other than that, the Great Marsh is optional.

This Gym's puzzle involves a lot of water. There are three levels to the Gym:
I will refer to them as bottom, middle, and top. There are also three
different colors of buttons scattered throughout the Gym. The Yellow button
will lower the water level to the very bottom, allowing you to access any of
the three levels of the Gym; the Green button will raise or lower the water
level to the middle level, giving you access to the middle and top levels; and
the Blue button will raise the water level to its highest stage, so you can
only access the top level.

There are also rafts that float depending on the water level. You can cross
these rafts, and they will make bridges depending on the water level.

To solve the puzzle, from the start, go across the bridge and press the Yellow
button. Proceed down the stairs, ignoring the Green button you see. Head to
the very back, climb the stairs up to the top level, and press the Green
button. Go back down the stairs but this time to the middle level, ignore the
Yellow button, and walk around (crossing a bridge) back up to the top floor.
Press the Blue button. Head south, fight against the Tuber boy and Tuber girl
(crossing some bridges as you go), then press the Green button. Go down to the
middle layer and press the southern-most Yellow button (ignore the one next to
a Green button). Walk all the way north, leading you to the bottom floor.
Follow the path until you get to a Blue button, then press it. Cross the
bridge, and the path to the Gym Leader should appear.

Again, my Pokemon are way stronger than they should be at this point. Crasher
Wake uses Water-type Pokemon, so your Grass- and Electric-type Pokemon will be
at an advantage. However, be mindful to the fact that Gyarados is NOT weak to
Grass (since it is part Flying-type) and Quagsire is completely IMMUNE to
Electric-type attacks. If you have the luxury, use Electric-type attacks
against Gyarados and Grass-type attacks against Quagsire, as those attacks
will do 4x damage to (and likely One-Hit K.O.) that Pokemon.

Gyarados has the Intimidate Ability, which will lower your Pokemon's Attack
when its sent out. It also has pretty high Attack itself and some moves that
use it. Quagsire has Water Absorb which will restore Quagsire's HP if its hit
by a Water-type attack instead of deal damage.

Floatzel is both strong and quick, so stay on guard. Fortunately, it's weak to
both Grass- and Electric-type Pokemon, so if you have one you'll be able to
hit it pretty nicely. Floatzel does know Brine, though, which does more damage
if the target Pokemon has half or less HP remaining. Keep your HP high,
otherwise Brine will sweep you away.

After beating Crasher Wake, he'll give you the Fen Badge, which allows you to
use Defog outside of battle. He will also give you TM55 (Brine). Also, if this
is your fourth Badge, all Traded Pokemon up to Level 50 will obey you without
question.

After beating Crasher Wake, talk to the Galactic Grunt outside of the Great
Marsh, and now that you have four Badges, he'll run off. Follow him east, talk
to him again, and he'll continue running away from you. After he runs off,
Rival will appear from behind and start a battle with you.

Compared to the last two Gym Leaders you've had to fight, Rival should be a
complete pushover. His Starly isn't even evolved, so one hit from practically
any of your Pokemon should do it in with little difficulty. His other three
Pokemon have gained a few levels, but still aren't really a threat. The only
one that might give you a little trouble would be his starter Pokemon,
although even it is weak in comparison to the Gym Leaders, so you should be
able to take it down with either smart type countering or sheer brute force.

After beating him, he'll hear about the Galactic Grunt, and then chase after
him. You should do the same, and head east to Route 213.

The Shellos in this area are blue and look slightly different, so don't be
alarmed. They're still the same Pokemon. There's also Wingulls and even
Floatzels here for you to catch and/or battle.

You can pick up TM40 (Aerial Ace) behind a Smashable Rock to the east of the
Beauty. You can also use your Dowsing Machine in the sandy areas to go
beachcombing and pick up a Pearl.

The house by the shore is rather unusual. If you talk to the man inside of it,
Dr. Footstep, he'll examine your lead Pokemon for you. Apparently, if it's
happy with you, he will give it a Footprint Ribbon.

Move along the southern coast, heading east, and you'll run into the Galactic
Goon again. Talk to him, and he'll dart off east. Follow him, fighting the
Tuber boy and Tuber girl if you desire. You can use the Dowsing Machine in
this beach to find even more items. You can also pick up a Red Shard outside
of the nearby hotel, the Hotel Grand Lake.

Since there's nowhere else to go, enter the hotel. Talk to the hotel clerk if
your Pokemon need any healing, and then take the back exit. This'll take you
to an area with some houses in it. Inside of the second house you come across
(first one on the left), you can talk to the clown living there to receive
TM92 (Trick Room). You can also pick up a PP Up near the pool, which is west
of the scattered houses.

North of the hotel area you'll find a place nearby Lake Valor. There's a
restaurant near the entrance, which you can enter and fight a multitude of
Double Battles. Do so if you wish, and you'll pick up nearly $10,000, as well
as a bit of EXP. The restaurant is only open between the hours of 9:00 and
23:00, and the Trainers inside might vary from the ones I have listed below.

Just talk to any of the Trainers and say yes when they ask if you'd like to
battle them and a battle will start.

Outside of the restaurant, you'll find the Galactic Goon to the east. Talk to
him, and he'll run to the north.

Follow him north, and then talk to him again, but this time, instead of
running away, he'll fight you.

Head north a bit and you'll find Cynthia again. She'll ask how your Pokedex is
coming along and will then give you the SecretPotion which can be used to
clear the Psyducks blocking your path on Route 210.

If one of your Pokemon knows Fly, you can Fly to Solaceon Town or Veilstone
City to save some time. But, since you're already in the area, head north to
Route 214. It'll take you back to Veilstone City anyway, so it's all good.

There are really two paths you can take. The left path will take you through
less wild Pokemon and Trainers. The paths are pretty straightforward, though,
although there is a shortcut in the left path if you have Rock Smash on you.
Although, if you're anything like me, you'll want to beat the snot out of all
of the Trainers in both paths, huzzah!

You can find a hidden Heart Scale (give to the Move Relearner in Pastoria
City) by using your Dowsing Machine, although it's easy to find even without
using it. Near the Psychic, there's a 0-shaped path with a square of tall
grass missing. Examine where the 0 is missing a patch of grass to find it.

At the end of the mountain side of the path, there's a cave entrance leading
into the Ruin Maniac Cave. Inside, you can find TM28 (Dig). The guy inside is
obsessed with Unowns... and digging. Depending on how many letters of Unown
you have, he'll dig the tunnel out further and further. You can catch
Hippopotas inside of his cave, but only very rarely. The larger his tunnel
gets, the more likely you are to encounter Hippopotas, and when his tunnel is
complete (after having all 26 letters of the Unown), he'll finally stop and
open up an exit to Solaceon Ruins, allowing you to reach a special room that
has Unown ! and ? in it.

At the very end of Route 214, you'll find yourself back in Veilstone City.
From here, head west, past Route 215 and back to the Pokemon Cafe on Route
210. While in Veilstone City, you will want to put a Pokemon that knows Defog
on your party. Zubat is a pretty common Pokemon that can learn Defog if you're
looking for one that can learn it.

Use the SecretPotion on the Psyducks and they'll all wander off. Cynthia
will then appear behind you. Answer yes to her question and she'll give you
the Old Charms. She then tells you to go to Celestic Town and runs off.

There are three Ninjas hiding in the thick grass. Well, Ninja Boys, because
they're barely visible. There's also 12 real Ninjas in there, but they don't
have any Pokemon. As you head north, a patch of dense fog will start to form.

In the northern area of Route 210, a heavy fog has taken the Route under it's
cloud of limited visibility. You will either need to wander around blindly or
use Defog in order to clear the fog from the area, allowing you to see.

Make your way through the tall grass and climb the hill, up to the area where
you need to cross a bridge. There's another narrow bridge that you can cross
with your Bicycle, so ride it across, fight against the Ninja Boy, take the
narrow bridge south, and then use Rock Smash to clear way to TM30 (Shadow
Ball).

Head back to the start of the narrow bridge, but this time go south on the
main bridge. Fight the Black Belt, and then you can pick up the Smoke Ball
being guarded by another Ninja Boy. Continue to make your way west until you
eventually reach Celestic Town.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.5.7. Celestic Town |__________________________________________________)

Kannagi Town is an ancient town full of lore and stuff. Well, at least, that's
what I'm guessing. If you go west of the Pokemon Center, an old lady will
ramble about some legend or something.

At this point, you can pick up a few items throughout town.

Inside of the Pokemon Center, talking to the man on the left side of the
building will net you a Great Ball. You can talk to the Black Belt inside of
the house on the southwest side of town to receive the Analog Watch
Application for your Poketch. It's basically just a clock with hands on it
instead of a 24-hour military digital clock thingy.

There's also no Poke Mart in town, but the house in the northeast corner of
town is called the Friendly Shop and it has items for you to purchase. Pretty
much the same old selection, though, although you can buy Timer Balls now for
$1000 each. But, you can also talk to the bearded man inside of the Friendly
Shop and he'll give you the Wise Glasses, which slightly increase the power of
the bearer's Special-type attacks.

Whenever you're ready, head to the center of town and talk to the Team
Galactic Grunt guarding the entrance to a cave. Answer yes to his question
and he'll initiate a battle.

Not too tough. After beating him, he'll run off, allowing you access into the
cave. The old lady from before will come over and thank you for ridding him.
She'll also notice the Old Charms you have and will know that it was Cynthia
that gave it to you. She'll then take the Old Charms from you and tell you to
look at the inside of the cave.

Inside, you will see ancient drawings of three Pokemon on the wall. Examine
them, and the old lady will come in and tell you about the legend of the trio
of Legendary Pokemon. She'll then give you HM03, which contains Surf, but
she'll tell you that you can't use it outside of battle until after you've
gotten the Gym Badge from Hearthome City.

As you exit the cave, the man with blue hair that you saw at the Mt. Coronet
will be outside. He'll introduce himself as Cyrus, talk to you about some
stuff, mention Mt. Coronet, and will then leave. Interesting...

Anyway, now you can finally go back to Hearthome City and enter the Gym!
However, just for completion's sake, you might as well check out Route 211 to
the west (not necessary, but I'm going to cover it anyway).

More Trainers, some fairly strong wild Pokemon. Not too bad. If you talk to
the Ace Trainer near the Ruin Maniac, he'll repeatedly say to himself "I'm
strong!" before eventually noticing you. He'll then give you TM77 (Psych Up).
Cool?

To the west is another entrance to the Mt. Coronet. You haven't been to this
part of it yet, but there's really nothing in there for now except an Escape
Rope. You can come back here later when you are able to use Strength to do
some more exploring, though.

Now the Gym is finally operational again! Woohoo! This Gym is all about
riddles. Pretty simple mathmatical riddles, actually. To start, stand on the
elevating platform and you'll see a signpost and three doors in front of you.
Read the sign to see the question, as well as three possible answers with
arrows. If you think the answer with the arrow pointing left is correct, then
enter the left door. If you think the one with the arrow pointing up is
correct, enter the middle door. And if you think the answer with the arrow
pointing right is correct, can you guess? Yes, you're right, you go through
the door to the right.

What happens if you get a question wrong? You get hurled into a pool of molten
lava, that's what! So don't get it wrong! No, don't worry, you don't really
get thrown into a pool of lava. You just have to fight a Trainer. I'm all for
fighting Trainers, so don't feel like you need to answer all of the questions
correctly. 

Here is a list of all of the questions, as well as the answers (and the name
of the Trainer you'll have to fight if you enter the wrong door):
  ____________
 / QUESTION 1 \_______________________________________
|        "Question: what is 3 plus 5 plus 7?"         |
|           "Answer: <- 2    ^ 16   -> 15"            |
| --------------------------------------------------- |
| <- Wrong              ^ Wrong            -> Correct |
'-----------------------------------------------------'
  ____________
 / QUESTION 2 \_______________________________________
|          "Question: what is 12 plus 28?"            |
|          "Answer: <- 30   ^ 40   -> 50"             |
| --------------------------------------------------- |
| <- Wrong             ^ Correct             -> Wrong |
'-----------------------------------------------------'
  ____________
 / QUESTION 3 \_______________________________________
|      "Question: what is 3 multiplied by 13?"        |
|           "Answer: <- 39   ^ 93   -> 33"            |
| --------------------------------------------------- |
| <- Correct            ^ Wrong              -> Wrong |
'-----------------------------------------------------'
  ____________
 / QUESTION 4 \_______________________________________
| "Question: what was the answer from the first room?"|
|         "Answer: <- 2    ^ 16    -> 15"             |
| --------------------------------------------------- |
| <- Wrong              ^ Wrong            -> Correct |
'-----------------------------------------------------'

If you guess the fourth question correctly, you'll enter the room with the Gym
Leader that you saw awhile back, Fantina. Heal up, and get ready for a tough
fight against her ghostly team of terrors!

|Marriland's Pokemon at this point:|

      | - Empoleon     Lv42 |
      | - Luxray       Lv42 |
      | - Staraptor    Lv42 |
      | - Lucario      Lv43 |
      | - Bibarel      Lv34 |
      | - Golbat       Lv21 |
      '---------------------'

You usually won't have a Lucario at this point, but I got one at Level 30 in
the GTS and decided to train it up, so that's how I have it. Remember, the GTS
can be an awesome way to get Pokemon if you know how to work it.

Anyway, all of Fantina's Pokemon are Ghost-type, so your Normal- and Fighting-
type attacks are going to be rendered absolutely useless here. And, since all
of her Pokemon either have Levitate or are part Flying-type, your Ground-type
attacks are useless as well. Dark-type attacks will be your best bet for
inflicting the most damage. Otherwise, you'll just want to go aggressive with
any attack (other than Normal-, Fighting-, and Ground-type ones).

Fantina's Drifblim has a literal ton of HP. It also forces you to take damage
if you knock it out with a Physical-based attack, so keep that in mind before
hitting it with Bite, Crunch, etc. It's not that aggressive, thankfully, but
it's still a real pain to take down.

Her Mismagius is an absolute terror to fight against. It knows the destructive
Shadow Ball, which, with its high Special Attack, will do a considerable
amount of damage to you. It also knows Psychic and Magical Leaf for additional
type coverage, and Confuse Ray to really mess with you. Be careful not to
bring it down to the red-zone in health, otherwise Fantina will use a Hyper
Potion and remove all of the damage you inflicted.

Lastly is her Gengar, which also has very high Special Attack. Fortunately it
has fairly weak Defense and Special Defense, but it is fast and hits hard, so
be careful.

After beating her, she'll give you the Relic Badge. She'll also give you TM65
(Shadow Claw). Plus, on top of that, you can also now use Surf outside of
battle.

As you leave the Gym, Cynthia will approach you and ask you about what
happened in Celestic Town. She'll then talk about what Team Galactic is
planning and will tell you to go to the library in Canalave City. To get
there, you will need to travel west of Jubilife City.

      | You can return to the Poketch Company Building and talk to the    |

(_| s5.6.0. Hanging Ten - Now that you can Surf... |_________________________)

This section here is entirely optional, but since there's a lot of areas you
can access now that you have Surf, you can check these locations out to get a
whole ton of useful items and TMs. If you just want to get on with the
Walkthrough or don't care about getting useful items, proceed to section
5.6.1. Otherwise, read on.

   | TWINLEAF TOWN |
   `--.------------'------------------------------------------------------.
      | You can find a Keystone by using the Dowsing Machine in the left  |
      |side of the small pond on the south side of town. It's hidden in   |
      | the trees.                                                        |

   | OREBURGH GATE |

      | In the basement of Oreburgh Gate (requires Rock Smash to access), |
      | you can now use Surf to reach a previously unavailable area of    |
      | the basement. Over there, you'll find a Trainer to fight.         |

      | battle, there's nothing else for you to do down here. Well, you   |
      | can fight wild Golducks by Surfing, which is kind of cool.        |
      |___________________________________________________________________|

   ,-----------.
   | ROUTE 204 |
   `--.--------'----------------------------------------------------------.
      | On the southern side of Route 204 (by Jubilife City), there's a   |
      | lake on the west side of the Route. You can Surf on it to reach   |
      | the Sea Incense.                                                  |
      | You can also find a HP Up by walking northwest, near the entrance |
      | to the cave, and using Surf to cross the lake. On an isolated     |
      | piece of land, you'll find the HP Up.                             |
      |___________________________________________________________________|

   ,--------------.
   | RAVAGED PATH |
   `--.-----------'-------------------------------------------------------.
      | Inside of the cave, you'll find some rocks that require Rock      |
      | Smash to clear. Smash 'em down like you might have done before,   |
      | although now you can use Surf to continue exploring the cave.     |
      | A bit north, you'll find a place to land (the river will continue,|
      | though). Stop there for now, and climb the path, using Rock Smash |
      | on the rocks in your way. Eventually, you'll find the Luck        |
      | Incense up there.                                                 |
      | You can also continue surfing on the river to find TM03 (Water    |
      | Pulse) at the very end of it.                                     |
      |___________________________________________________________________|

   ,-----------.
   | ROUTE 205 |
   `--.--------'----------------------------------------------------------.
      | From the bridge that Team Galactic once blocked, you can Surf to  |
      | the west, then north, and you'll eventually find a fork in the    |
      | road... well, water. Head west, and you'll find yourself in a new |
      | area, the Fuego Ironworks (see section 6.12.). Surf south of that |
      | and you'll find yourself in the very back of the Floaroma Meadow  |
      | You can find a Miracle Seed in the northwest corner and a Leaf    |
      | Stone in the southeast corner of the garden. Plus, there are a    |
      | TON of hidden items scattered throughout the garden, so be sure   |
      | to use your Dowsing Machine to track them all down!               |
      |___________________________________________________________________|

   ,------------------.
   | VALLEY WINDWORKS |
   `--.---------------'---------------------------------------------------.
      | You can find a Max Elixir hidden in the right-side of the         |
      | Windmill behind the fence (which is accessable only by using      |
      | Surf). Use your Dowsing Machine to track it down.                 |
      | You can also pick up TM24 (Thunderbolt) by Surfing to the north-  |
      | east portion of the area.                                         |
      |___________________________________________________________________|

   ,-------------.
   | ETERNA CITY |
   `--.----------'--------------------------------------------------------.
      | There's a hidden PP Up that can be located by Surfing in the      |
      | northeastern area of town. You'll need to use your Dowsing Machine|
      | in order to locate it.                                            |
      |___________________________________________________________________|

   | MT. CORONET |
   `--.----------'--------------------------------------------------------.
      | There are two pools of water that you can use Surf to get across. |
      | The one to the south will eventually lead you to a Dawn Stone.    |
      | On the other end of the northern pool, you will find a Protein.   |

      | By the area with the bridges, you can go down near the water      |
      | and use Surf. Unfortunately, until you are able to use Waterfall, |
      | the only thing you can do down here is fight a Fisherman.         |

   `--.--------'----------------------------------------------------------.
      | From the western side of Route 209, near the docks where there's  |
      | a girl in a Pikachu costume, you'll want to Surf across the river |
      | until you reach a small piece of land that she is facing. Then,   |
      | walk over to where the rock in the river is. You can use Surf at  |
      | one square behind the rock, allowing you to access a secret area  |
      | where you can find TM19 (Giga Drain).                             |

   | ROUTE 212 (North Side) |
   `--.---------------------'---------------------------------------------.
      | Right around where you can enter the courtyard of the Pokemon     |
      | Mansion, there's a pool out to the west that you can Surf across  |
      | to gain access to the inside of the hedges. You can pick up a     |
      | Rose Incense there.                                               |

   `--.---------------------'---------------------------------------------.
      | Along the docks, you can Surf your way to a small 2x1 area of     |
      | land, surrounded by two trees and water. There's also a one-tile  |
      | large patch of flowers there. You can examine the patch of        |
      | flowers to find a hidden Protein.                                 |
      | You can also find TM84 (Poison Jab) near all of the narrow        |
      | bike bridges. Surf around, and you'll find it, along with a small |
      | patch of tall grass.                                              |

   | ROUTE 213 |
   `--.--------'----------------------------------------------------------.
      | You can use Surf along the beach. Look for an opening in the rock |

To the west of Jubilife City is Route 218. You could visit here earlier,
although you couldn't get any further than the dock due to your lack of the
ability to Surf. Now, however, you can freely traverse the Route and access
Canalave City.

Surf on the dock, taking either the northern or southern path (up to you,
although the southern path has some Fisherman to fight, including ANOTHER DANG
MAGIKARP NOOB). Canalave City really is not very far away at all. On your way
there, there's a patch of tall grass with Floatzels, Gastrodons, and Mr. Mimes
for you to catch and battle.

On your way through the building to Canalave City, Dawn's father will stop you
and power up your Pokedex. Now you can view the gender differences of each
Pokemon in the Pokedex. Continue on to Canalave City.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.6.2. Canalave City |__________________________________________________)

Canalave City appears to be a booming port town. There are ships and such all
over the place. There's also some items and interesting people to talk to in
town.

Inside of the first house you will see when entering Canalave City, talk to
the lady on the right and she will give you TM48 (Skill Swap).

The Move Deleter, which will let you remove any moves from your Pokemon
(including HM moves), can be found in the house to the north of Poke Mart.
Handy if you accidentally loaded your main Pokemon with cruddy HM moves and
want to undo the mess you did.

Before crossing the bridge to the west side of town, make sure your Pokemon
are fully healed, because as you cross the bridge, Rival will show up and
challenge you to a battle.

Rival's Team is finally starting to come together. He finally evolved his
Starly into a Staravia, and he even added a new Pokemon, Heracross (which you
probably have not seen at this point in the game, so it will be a new addition
to your Pokedex). He still shouldn't be that tough, but his Heracross will
make it more of a challenge due to its decent strength. His starter Pokemon
will also be pretty potent by now.

After beating him, he'll run off again, talking some about the League
Champion.

Anyway, on the western side of town, there's a library, and a ship that can
take you to Iron Island. However, you can access a secluded area with a
valuable TM if you use Surf while on the dock to the ship and the Surf your
way south. You'll eventually find a secret area that contains TM89 (U-Turn).

      | Now might be a good time for you to go to Iron Island and help    |
      | Riley out. He'll reward you with a Riolu egg, which will hatch    |
      | and then evolve into the cool Lucario with proper training. Check |
      | out section 6.13. of this Walkthrough for the full scoop!         |
      |___________________________________________________________________|

Lastly, you'll notice the Gym on the west side of town. Inside, prepare
yourself to fight a multitude of Rock- and Steel-type Pokemon.

This Gym's challenge is a multi-level elevator puzzle. It's actually not as
difficult as it may seem, but it is pretty fun riding the elevators all
around.

To get to the Gym Leader, from the start, take the platform on the far right
(the fourth one) to take you up. Take the platform to the south back down,
fight the Ace Trainer, and then take the west platform back up to the second
floor. Take the platform up there to the west, then take the next platform up
to the third floor. Take the northern platform followed by the top platform
(by the Worker). Keep taking the platforms to the east until you get to the
second Black Belt. Fight him, then go south and take the two platforms to take
you to the other side of the wall. Take the next platform you see down, fight
the Ace Trainer, then take the platform she's guarding down to the first
floor. Now, take the red platform all the way up to the Gym Leader himself.

Byron will introduce himself as the Gym Leader, and also as... SPOILERS!
...Roark's father. Yep, you'll see the connection in both their looks and in
the Pokemon they use. Brace yourself for an ironclad battle against the Steel
Gym Leader!

Bronzor isn't very offensive, but it has quite high Defense and Special
Defense and very little weaknesses. The only Type that is Super Effective
against it is Fire, which if you have, you should obviously use. Otherwise,
just use your strongest Water-, Electric-, Fighting-, Ghost-, or Dark-type
attacks (any other types will be resisted).

Steelix isn't too much fancier than anything you came up against in the Gym.
Just higher level, and with some better attacks. One good Special-based Water-
type attack will sink the iron snake. Avoid using Physical-based attacks
against it, though, because even 4x effective attacks (like Fighting- or
Ground-type attacks) will not knock it out in one hit!

Lastly comes his Bastiodon. This thing has gargantuan Defense and Special
Defense (particularly the former), so there is almost no way to one hit KO it.
Your best bet here would be a Fighting- or Ground-type attack (preferably
Special-based), although even that will take a few hits. It knows Iron
Defense, which will sharply raise its Defense, and it tends to use it quite
often until its Defense is literally untouchable. Once it starts using it,
switch to your strongest Special-based attacks. It also knows Flash Cannon, a
powerful Steel-type attack, although fortunately it won't do too considerable
of damage due to Bastiodon's low Attack and Special Attack. When low in HP,
Bastiodon will use Rest to completely restore its HP. Plus, the first time it
uses Rest, it will wake up immediately thanks to a held berry it has. If you
have a move like Swords Dance, Howl, Leer, or Tail Whip, it would be wise to
use these moves to either strengthen your own Pokemon or weaken Bastiodon
during its sleep.

After beating him, you'll earn the Mine Badge from him, which will allow you
to use Strength outside of battle. Since this is your 6th Badge, any of your
traded Pokemon up to Level 70 will now fully obey you. He'll also give you
TM91, Flash Cannon, which is a very worthwhile move to teach an Empoleon if
you have one.

You can take a shortcut out of the Gym by riding the platform to the right of
Tougan all the way around, and then taking the red platform back to the first
floor.

      | Now that you can use Strength, return to the basement, across the |
      | water, where you had fought the Expert. This time,                |
      | though, you'll be able to use Strength to move the boulder that   |
      | was blocking your path. Right near the boulder is the Earth       |
      | Plate. Also, just to the north, use Rock Smash on the rock by     |
      | another boulder, and then push to boulder to the left to gain     |
      | access to TM01 (Focus Punch).                                     |

As you exit the Gym, Rival will tell you to come to the library. On the top
floor of the library will be Rival, Dawn, and Rowan. Rowan will ask the three
of you to track down the three Legendary Pokemon of the three lakes. He'll
send Rival off to Lake Acuity to the north and he'll tell you to go to Lake
Valor while he and Dawn cover Lake Verity.

Just then, you'll hear what sounds like a large explosion. Head outside of the
library and a sailor will tell you that Team Galactic set off explosives at
Lake Valor. Whoops! How did you let that one slide?! Ok, well you'd better
get crusin' on over there to stop them before it's too late.

Return to the Valor Lakefront, around where you chased the Team Galactic Grunt
and where Cynthia gave you the SecretPotion, and you'll find that the two
people blocking the passage to the lake are now gone.

Inside of the entrance, you'll find that the lake is completely dried up and
tons of Magikarp are flopping around in the empty remains. Head over to the
west, fighting a Galactic Grunt, and then make your way south, fighting the
other two, until you find the entrance to a small cave.

Enter the cave, and inside you will find another Commander of Team Galactic:
Saturn. Talk to him and he'll go into his plans and stuff, and will then
battle you.

Not terribly tough. You probably haven't seen Toxicroak before, and it can hit
kind of hard, but it shouldn't be any tougher than your last Gym Leader
battle. The other two Pokemon are jokes and you should be familliar with how
to extinguish them.

After beating Saturn, he'll tell you that Mars is in Lake Verity (by Twinleaf
Town) and will then run off. Heal up if you have to, and then Fly over to
Twinleaf Town - back to where you got your first Pokemon.

Her Pokemon have gotten much stronger since the last time you fought her.
They're also a bit tougher than Saturn's. However, Purugly is really the only
thing to fear. It has great Attack, although nowhere it should be nowhere near
as scary now that you have (or, at least, should have) some strong evolved
Pokemon on your side.

After beating her, she'll say a whole ton of stuff about how Team Galactic
captured the Legendary Trio, Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf. She'll then leave, and
Professor Rowan will tell you to go see Rival in Lake Acuity.

To get to Lake Acuity, you'll need to first travel through Mt. Coronet. Fly
to Eterna City, make sure you have a sufficient amount of items and Pokemon
on your team that know both Strength and Defog, and preferably Surf and Rock
Smash as well.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.7.4. Mt. Coronet (North) |____________________________________________)

Return to the Mt. Coronet entrance on Route 211 (West) (either side works
actually, although I'm going to start from the west side near Eterna City),
although now you are able to push the boulders in there. Push the northern
boulder to access TM69 (Rock Polish). Pushing the eastern boulder will lead
you over to Route 211 (East).

Push the boulder north, then smash some rocks, and you'll find a Rare Candy.
Go back to the east, and then go north, down a set of stairs, and you'll
eventually find a set of stairs going down.

In the basement, you will need to use Defog in order to clear the fog. Right
near the stairs you can use Rock Smash to get a Stardust. Head north, and
you'll see a large lake. Down in the lake, you can Surf to the east and find a
small landing area that contains Light Clay. Otherwise, keep riding on the
elevated path until you see stairs going down to the middle layer. Use
Strength to move the boulder and you'll find Soft Sand.

Near the northern side of the room, you'll find a boulder in front of a
Revive. Move the boulder, and then pick up the Revive. Keep going along the
side of the cliff, using Rock Smash when you need to, and you'll eventually
find a Full Restore. You can also Rock Smash near the coast there to get a Max
Elixir.

After you've picked up everything you want to, return to the northwest corner
of the room, and then take the flight up stairs out of the basement.

Back on the first floor, there's a HP Up hidden in the wall between the two
rocks. Keep going, and you'll find the exit to Route 216.

The chilly region of the north is difficult to travel through due to the harsh
weather. Not only are you unable to ride your Bicycle here, but you will also
sometimes wade into deep snow, where you won't even be able to run! On top of
that, there will be Hail inside of each battle, damaging all battling Pokemon
that aren't Ice-types between turns. It gets very annoying, so be sure to have
lots of restorative items handy.

From the start, you have two options of where to go: you can either climb up
the ledge and then cross the bridges, or you can trudge through the snow in
the valley. The bridge route has less Trainers and battles, plus an Ice Heal.

After trekking a bit to the west, you'll find a Snow Lodge where you can heal
your Pokemon at. Just hop in the bed, face down, and press A and you'll be
asked if you'd like to take a rest.

Continue heading north, through a large field of grass and another Trainer,
and you'll make your way to Route 217.

Just when you thought it couldn't get worse... it gets worse. Route 217 is in
the middle of a raging blizzard, hampering your visibility and movement. The
snow in the area is always deep, so you won't even be able to run. Plus, there
are really deep patches of snow that will slow you down to a crawl. There's
also tons of Trainers, and seemingly no markings of where to go. Just remember
that you need to head north.

There's a few items scattered around. An Iron can be found literally in the
middle of nowhere. TM07 (Hail) can be found by a Ninja Boy.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you locate a house on the west side of the Route. Right
outside of the house (north side) is HM08 (Rock Climb), which you will NEED to
have at some point, so do not miss out on this! If you talk to the guy inside
of the house after picking up HM08, he'll give you the Icicle Plate.

There's also another house on the eastern side of the Route (further north
than the previously mentioned house). Talk to the lady inside of the house and
she'll give you the Spell Tag, which powers up Ghost-type attacks.

The exit to this snowy Route can be found in the very northwest. As long as
you stay to the west and continue to head north, you should reach the end
without difficulty. The northern part of the Route is where the tall grass is
at, where you can pick up wild Medichams as well as some previously obtainable
Pokemon.

Lake Acuity is to the north, it's being blocked by Galactic Grunts right now,
so head to Snowpoint City instead. You can find an Ultra Ball on your way
there (it's north a little bit, though).
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.7.8. Snowpoint City |_________________________________________________)

Unfortunately, there really isn't a lot to do in Snowpoint City. You can trade
a Haunter for a Medicham by talking to the blonde-haired girl in house on the
northwestern side of town. The Haunter has an Everstone attached to it, which
is cool because you'll get an Everstone (handy for passing on the female's
Nature when breeding), but unfortunate because it means the Haunter won't
evolve immediately into Gengar. Oh well, it's still pretty cool, and you can
catch more Medichams right outside of town.

The Gym is practically impossible to miss; it's right in the center of town!
Whenever you're ready, enter the Gym. Just be sure to bring a sweater...

Contrary to what you might think, the Trainers inside of this Gym use a
variety of Pokemon instead of solely Ice-types, so you'll need to vary your
own strategy accordingly. Still, as a general rule, a strong Fire-, Steel-, or
Fighting-type Pokemon will do very well in here.

I would also like to take this paragraph to say that this guide is created by
Marriland and is not to be sold on sites like eBay. If you paid money for this
guide, demand a refund immediately, and file a complaint.

Now THIS Gym has a really challenging puzzle! Basically, there are four layers
of depth to the Gym, and most all of the Gym is slippery ice which will carry
you in the direction you step until you either hit an object (Snowball,
Trainer, or wall), or land on a patch of snow. However, if you slide down into
the "pit", as I call it, you will crush any Snowballs in your path, but only
if you have enough speed. It's hard to explain and will take some practice.

However, since I'm nice and like to explain things (this is a Walkthrough,
after all), I'm going to provide a complete set of instructions for you to
follow. NOTE: There are many ways to solve the puzzle (some are much quicker),
but this is just one of them!

1. From the very entrance, walk over so you're to the right of the left
statue, then slide north (herein, walking on ice will be referred to as
sliding). This will break two snowballs in the pit.

2. Slide back south, take two steps to the right, and then slide down again,
breaking three more snowballs in the pit.

3. Slide to the right, over to the stairs, battle the Trainer, and then slide
to the northeast corner of the room.

4. Slide over to the two tiles of snow and slide downwards while standing on
the second one from the right (the one closest to the Gym Leader). You'll stop
on some more snow. Slide west to break another snowball in the pit.

5. Slide west, south, climb the stairs, slide south, and climb the stairs so
you'll be on the top level. (You'll need to return here several times, so this
spot will be called "the end of Step 5" for later reference.)

6. Go back to the end of Step 5, and then slide north to the next snow patch,
then west, fighting the Trainer, and then sliding north to another snow patch.
Slide east twice to break another snowball in the pit.

7. Go back to the end of Step 5, but this time slide north twice (instead of
stopping on the snow patch), then slide east to break a snowball on the third
level.

8. Go back to the end of Step 5, although now slide south twice, then east
once so you will be at the entrance. Slide down the same way you did in Step 1
(one step to the right of the left statue), then slide down so you're near the
Gym Leader. Slide over to the Trainer, then north, then west, then south to
patch of snow, and then south once again so you hit the snowball. Lastly,
slide west and you'll crush the snowball blocking your way to the Gym Leader. 

9. There should only be two snowballs left at this point (one in the absolute
middle of the pit and one on the southern side of the third level). Slide your
way back to the entrance (combination of end of Step 5 and going south, then
west). Now, step on the same position you were in during Step 2 (northeast
corner of the snow patch near the entrance) and then slide to the east. You'll
hit a snowball. Slide north to a patch of snow, then north again, but don't
step on the second patch of snow immediately to the north of the one you're
currently on; instead, slide to the west to shatter the snowball.

10. Return to the northwest corner of the snow patch near the entrance (you
know how to get there by now...), and slide back to where you were in Step 8.
Slide west so you hit the Trainer, but this time slide south so you land on a
patch of snow. Slide east, and you'll break the snowball in the middle.

11. Return to the entrance, and go straight through the center to reach the
Gym Leader!

She will always start with sending out her Snover, which will make it Hail
as soon as it is sent out due to its Ability, so you'll have to put up with
more damaging hatred for your non-Ice-type Pokemon. But, really, other than
that, it should be a pushover. One Fire-type attack will melt it. A Steel-,
Fighting-, or Flying-type attack should also put it's lights out pretty good.

Oddly enough, in her mix of Pokemon, is a Medicham. It can use Bulk Up to
raise it's Attack and Defense, so you'll want to hit it before it starts using
that, otherwise you could end up regretting it. It has low Special Defense and
starts out with low Defense, so strike it quick to take as little damage as
possible. Remember, if any of her Pokemon get into the red-zone HP-wise,
she'll pull out a Full Restore to heal it back to full. Cheap. This thing also
has a ton of nasty moves in its arsenal.

Next up is her Sneasel, which is quick and strong. It's also very frail, so
one good hit - even from a regular attack - and it'll be hurting. Strange as
it is, it knows Taunt, which will force you into using offensive moves against
it for your next two attacks. Umm, ok? You were probably planning on doing
that anyway. Any Fighting-type attack (except perhaps Rock Smash) should KO it
in one shot.

Lastly is her Abomasnow. It has Swagger, which will raise your Pokemon's
attack by two stages and then confuse it. The goal with that is to make it so,
if confusion damages your Pokemon, it will really hurt. Sounds great and all,
but it's probably not going to make too huge of a difference. Either switch
out if you become affected, or just administer Hyper Potions or Moomoo Milks
if you damage yourself. It also knows Snow Avalanche and Wood Hammer to
inflict some damage, so be on guard. Keep anything that's weak to Ice and
Grass out of the fight or you'll be sorry. As with her Snover, a nice Fire-
type attack will likely KO it in one shot. If you don't have Fire in your
arsenal, use Fighting-, Flying-, or Steel-type attacks against it to do the
most damage.

After beating her, she'll give you the Icicle Badge, which will allow you to
use Rock Climb outside of battle. She'll also give you TM72 (Avalanche).

(_| s5.8.1. Lake Acuity |____________________________________________________)

As you approach the outside of the lake, you'll see some Galactic Goons
lurking around.

Inside of the lake itself, you'll see Rival and Jupiter battling. They'll
finish, and Jupiter will tell you that she is going to the headquarters in
Veilstone City now that her mission is complete. She'll then leave. Can anyone
take a guess as to where to go now? If you guessed Veilstone City, you are
correct, so get Flying!
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s5.8.2. Veilstone City |_________________________________________________)

Back in Veilstone City, head on over to the giant black building in the
northeast corner of town. That's the Veilstone Galactic Building, and right
now, you're out of luck, because there's no way to get past the locked door
that's inside. However, there's a clumsy Team Galactic member outside of the
building who will drop the Storage Key after you speak with him. Pick it up,
and then go back to where you and Dawn battled two Galactic Grunts and where
you got HM02 (Fly) (it's in the northwest corner of town). Yep, the Warehouse.

Go inside of the Warehouse, and then open the door with your Storage Key
(simply press A on the door and select "Yes"). Grab the Dusk Stone, and then
head into the basement of the Galactic Veilstone Building.

        '-----------------'

The door to the north is locked with another Key, so you'll need to head east
instead. There are two Grunts along the way to the stairs, as well as a room
containing a Zinc.

Climb the stairs, and you'll be in a small room with a Grunt who won't fight
you and will instead tell you about the Warp Panels - little glowing circular
tiles that will warp you around to various parts of the building. Continue by
going up the stairs.

There's a Grunt by the first set of two Warp Panels that you'll find. Beat the
Grunt, and then you can take the Warp Panel on the right to find TM49
(Snatch). Go back, and then take the left Warp Panel to be teleported to a
room with another Warp Panel in it. Use it, and then you'll appear by a flight
of stairs.

Go up the stairs and you'll find a Grunt (with a Level 32 Wurmple, haha!), a
Warp Panel, and another flight of stairs leading up. Start by taking the Warp
Panel (after finishing the Grunt, if you wish to fight him), and then take the
stairs there downward. The stairs will lead you to a Scientist and another set
of stairs going down. Back in the basement, you'll find a Grunt (who won't
fight you), TM36 (Sludge Bomb), and the Galactic Key. This Key will let you
open any of the doors inside of the Veilstone Galactic Building.

At this point, unless you want to obtain TM21 (Frustration), use the Galactic
Key on the door right about where you where (the one that was blocked earlier)
and make your way outside. Otherwise, if you do want to get the TM, head back
up to the room with the Scientist, the Warp Panel, and the stairs that you
were in earlier, but this time take the stairs up. Make your way around the
parameter of the room, fighting the Grunts as you go, until you eventually
find a locked door. Open it up using the Galactic Key, and TM21 (Frustration)
will be yours.

Outside of the Warehouse, make your way back to the Galactic Veilstone
Building itself. Open the locked door on the first floor and proceed up the
stairs. Fight the two Grunts, and then you'll have three potential Warp Panels
you can go to: one inside of the northern room and two to the right. The top
one on the right will lead you to nothing but a dead end. The bottom-right one
will lead you to another Warp Panel which will in turn lead you to a Max
Revive. But, the Warp Panel you really want to take is the one inside of the
northern room with the Scientist in it.

You should now be in a room with two beds and stairs leading up. You can heal
your Pokemon in the bed by facing down whilst on it and then pressing A (and
choosing "Yes", of course). When you and your Pokemon are well rested,
continue up the stairs.

Upstairs, you'll find two Galactic Grunts that you'll have to fight in a
Double Battle. Crush them, and then continue down the corridor until you find
three Warp Panels. Don't bother with the one on the right, as it's just a dead
end. The one in the middle will take you to an Elixir. And lastly, the one on
the left will lead you to a flight of stairs.

Up the stairs, save your game, and then open the door to find Cyrus, the man
in the blue hair that you've seen around in a few places. Yes, he is the Boss
of Team Galactic! And his plans to capture the Legendary Trio appears to have
been a success.

Cyrus' Pokemon are pretty high-level, with all of their Levels above 40.
They're somewhat varied in type, although a Rock-type attack will tear through
all of his Pokemon. Other than that, none of them are particularly strong,
although his Sneasel is quick and powerful, so be on guard.

After beating him, he'll give you the Master Ball. He says he doesn't need the
Legendary Pokemon any more and is going to Mt. Coronet. There's a Warp Panel
in the direction he headed, so follow him there. Down in some secret area of
the HQ are a ton of capsule things. Continue walking until you reach a door,
where inside you'll find Saturn and the Legendary Trio. Saturn must not have
heard the news, because you'll have to battle him. He wants revenge for his
humiliating loss earlier, although too bad for him he's not going to get it!

He has the same old Pokemon, they're just a few Levels higher. No big deal.
Clean his clock just as you did before.

He'll step aside after you beat him, allowing you to press the big red button
that you know you have always wanted to press at some point in your life.
Press the button, and the Legendary Trio will be freed, and vanish. Oh my!

Go back to the room where you fought Cyrus, except go south from the Warp
Panel that you used to get to the basement to find a special Warp Panel that's
a one-way ticket out of the building (well, to a room right near the door).

        '-----------------'

Before entering, I strongly recommend stocking up on at least 30 Ultra Balls
(or, if you are playing at night, buy Dusk Balls instead). You will be able to
catch a Legendary Pokemon very soon, so you will need them!

Inside of the south side of Mt. Coronet (by Route 208), use Surf to cross the
northern body of water and then use Rock Climb to climb the rocks.

Upstairs, you can find a Max Potion on your way to the west up the stairs,
along with an Ether in the nearby rock. An Escape Rope is on the very south
side of the continued path, although you'll want to take the stairs going up
onto the elevated area. There's an exit in the southwest corner of the room
that will take you outside to the west side of Route 207, where you can use
Rock Climb to access an Iron. TM80 (Rock Slide) can be found by crossing the
bridge, then taking the southernly route to reach it. A Revive can be found by
taking the northern route instead. 

Near the very back of the cave, you'll find an opening in the wall (however,
if you have not done the events in the Veilstone Galactic Building and are
coming here for loot immediately after getting Rock Climb, this opening will
be sealed with depictions of the Legendary Trio, similar to the gate in
Celestic Town). Enter it, and then make your way up the stairs.

The stairs to the right lead to a hidden Max Revive inside of the southern
rock. Otherwise, just keep heading north.

As you enter, you'll see a familiar sight: snow. Blinding snow. Like the
Routes on your way to Snowpoint City, it is snowing at the peak of Mt.
Coronet, and the weather will be Hail inside of each battle.

This section sometimes confuses people, because there are lots of areas to
explore on the peak and I like to cover them all, so I'm going to list here
a quick-'n-easy path to take to get straight to business:

   1. Head east, north, use Rock Climb.
   2. Go west, south, a bit more west, and head north into the cave.
   3. Use Rock Climb and follow the path in the cave east to the exit.
   4. Climb down the stairs in the peak and then use Rock Climb in the chasm
      to climb the western rocks.
   5. Keep heading west until you get to a cave.
   6. It's straightforward from here on in, so just keep following the path
      and you'll get there.

But, if you want to explore everything, I have the original, slow-'n-detailed
version intact.

Head east, then north (taking the elevated path if you wish to avoid random
encounters). Use Rock Climb to climb the rocks. You can use Rock Climb again
if you wish to find a patch of grass with a rock in the middle of it. Hidden
in the rock is a Nugget.

The cave to the right of where you used Rock Climb has a giant lake in it with
a waterfall (that you'll have to explore later), as well as a PP Up and Ultra
Ball hidden inside of some of the more obvious-placed rocks.

Back to where you used Rock Climb the first time, head west. If you have a
Pokemon with Strength, you can avoid the patches of tall grass by using it on
taking the more eastern path. Otherwise, you'll need to wade through a large
field of tall grass. On the southern path, hidden inside of a rock past a rock
that you can use Rock Smash on is a Max Potion. Make your way north and into
the cave.

Inside of the cave, use Rock Climb to climb your way up to a Team Galactic
Grunt. Fight him, and then continue along until you have to fight another one.
On the very east side of the cave, you'll find an exit leading back outside.

Head north, and then down into the crevice. There's a cave down there, as well
as a few Grunts, although you won't be able to proceed deeper into the cave
until Team Galactic is off of the mountain, so you can ignore that cave if you
wish. (After they leave, come back to this entrance and you can snag yourself
TM02 (Dragon Claw), as well as exit to the northern part of the mountain.) So,
instead, use Rock Climb to get yourself up onto the western cliff. Again, if
you have a Pokemon that can use Strength, you will be able to use Strength on
the boulders to fight less Pokemon on your way to the west. Regardless of if
you have it or not, you'll want to head to the west until you find another
entrance into the mountain.

Back inside, you will find a path leading to stairs. Climb the stairs, and
then fight the two Grunts on the next floor. Keep going, and you'll find
another flight of stairs. Upstairs, you'll find another Grunt. Fight the
Grunt, and then keep going north until you reach an exit leading out.

NOTE: At this point, if you don't have at least 20 Ultra Balls (or Dark
Balls), you should turn back now and buy some! You will want to have them for
one of the upcoming fights.

You will now be on the very top of the Mt. Coronet, amidst the ancient ruins
known as the Spear Pillar. Fight the two Grunts guarding the entrance in a
Double Battle, and then head north a bit to see a dangerous sight... Mars,
Jupiter, and Cyrus!

After some intense dialogue, Cyrus will proceed to awaken Dialga (or, if
you're playing Pokemon Pearl, Palkia) in the most AMAZING scene ever in the
history of Pokemon games (at least, that's what I think). Save your game and
heal your Pokemon, because you're about to enter a pretty challenging fight.
When you're ready, step north, and Mars and Jupiter will challenge you to a
fight. Just then, Rival will rush in to help you out, eager to get his revenge
on Jupiter from their battle in Lake Acuity earlier.

Munchlax, unfortunately, is not that helpful. It knows Metal Sound, Stockpile,
Body Slam, and Swallow. However, there is a good way to get some more use out
of Rival: Knock Out his Munchlax! Unlike previous partners, whenever Rival
loses one of his Pokemon, he'll replace it with the next Pokemon on his
roster. Any of his Pokemon will be more helpful than Munchlax, so try and
Knock Out Munchlax whenever you're able to. This is one of the things that
makes this fight a bit of a challenge: at times, it will seem like a 1 vs 2
battle since Rival has horrible judgement when using moves.

Mars and Jupiter rely heavily on annoying you. Their Bronzors are able to use
Light Screen and Reflect to reduce the damage you deal, and they can use
Confuse Ray to Confuse your Pokemon. Their damaging attacks will be welcomed
compared to their constant annoyances, so try and deal with them as quickly as
possible so they have minimal impact. Fire-type attacks are your best bet,
although Water-, Fighting-, and Dark-type attacks will also do well.

Mars' Purugly is still a threat, particularly after gaining a few levels
since the last time you fought it. Its Slash attack will probably inflict a
lot of damage, so try and hit Purugly with a strong Fighting-type attack to
render it incapible of fighting as soon as you're able to. Just watch out,
because it will have the added support of the Bronzors or whichever other
Pokemon is out.

Jupiter's Skuntank is rough as always. It has Flamethrower in its roster, so
be careful with any of your Steel-type Pokemon. Just handle it the best you
can.

Although their Golbats are last in line, they are also very annoying, able to
Confuse and Poison you as well as use Mean Look to prevent you from switching
your Pokemon. One of the Golbats knows Sludge Bomb while the other knows
Poison Fang. Fortunately they're easier to take down than the Bronzors.

A great strategy to use on these two is to target only one of them, leaving
one's Bronzor out while you focus your attacks on the other Commander's
Pokemon. This way you won't have to deal with two powerful Pokemon at once.
However, you'll have to put up with the annoyances of the Bronzor.

After beating the two ladies, Rival will heal your Pokemon and will then run
off. Now its just you, Cyrus, and one angry Time Ruler Pokemon (Space Ruler in
Pearl, obviously).

Cyrus will instruct Dialga to begin using its power to take over/destroy the
world, but just then, your little pixie friends, the Legendary Trio, will
appear and will stop Dialga from unleashing its true force.

Cyrus' Pokemon have gotten much stronger since the last time you fought
against them. They've all been evolved to their final stages, gained 5 or 6
Levels, and he's even added a Gyarados to his line up.

His Honchkrow has high Attack, Special Attack, and even pretty nice HP, so be
wary of its attacks. Use Rock-, Electric-, or Ice-type attacks against it to
do the most damage.

You should be familliar with fighting Gyarados by now, so just use the regular
tactics against it. Electric-type attacks are its bane.

Weavile is very fast and very strong. It has just a little less Attack than
Honchkrow, but a tremendous amount more Speed. It knows Scissor Cross, which
is a high-power Bug-type move.

Last up is Cyrus' Crobat. It is the fastest of all of his Pokemon, and it is
capable of using Confuse Ray, Air Slash, Bite, and Cross Poison.

After beating Cyrus, he and the other Commanders will leave. Shortly
thereafter, Professor Rowan and Dawn will arrive and tell you that you have to
beat (or catch) Dialga (or Palkia in Pearl) in order to save the world.
Drastic? You know it! There's no turning back now. Save your game, and get
ready to fight against the Time (or Space) Ruler Pokemon!

DO NOT USE YOUR MASTER BALL ON DIALGA OR PALKIA! They are actually very easy
to catch in comparison to other Legendary Pokemon. Save it for either Mesprit
or Cresselia later on.

Dialga (or Palkia, although I'm just going to say Dialga for right now) will
be the strongest wild Pokemon you've encountered. It has diverse types, making
few attacks effective against it. It also will have over 100 in every stat, as
well as over 150 Special Attack, making its attacks quite painful to endure.
Its signature move, Roar of Time, is a Dragon-type Hyper Beam that will
inflict massive damage on the target but will render Dialga unable to attack
during the next turn. All of its moves are offensive moves, so expect a hit
every single turn, except for the turn after it uses Roar of Time. Don't use
your strongest attacks on Dialga if you have intentions of catching it;
instead, just whittle away at its HP, using Hyper Potions when your HP gets
low and tossing Ultra Balls (or Dusk Balls) whenever you get the chance. If
you accidentally knock it out, just reset and try again. Opening up the fight
with a Quick Ball or two might also prove to be effective.

After stopping Dialga (by either beating it or catching it), Rowan and Dawn
will come over and congratulate you on your victory. Dawn will then lead you
back to where you entered the ruins as Rowan says something alone.

Before leaving, return to the spot where you fought Dialga except keep going
north and you'll find an Adamant Orb, which will boost the potency of Dialga.
(In Pearl, you will pick up the Lustrous Orb, which pretty much does the same
thing for Palkia.)

At this point, you can now go to Sunyshore City to the east of the Valor
Lakefront (where the man was previously blocking your way). However, if you
want a chance to catch some powerful Legendary Psychic Pokemon, you'll need to
revisit all of the lakes. I don't know about you, but I'm not about to turn
down our little pixie friends, so get going to the lakes! (Unless, of course,
you really aren't interested... in which case, go to section 5.8.9.)

Now that you've freed the Legendary Trio, Lake Verity's water level has risen,
so you can now Surf on the lake. There's a field of tall grass with TM38 (Fire
Blast) in it on the southwest side of the lake. But, you'll want to Surf over
to the island cave in the middle of the lake.

Inside, you'll find Mesprit, one of the three Legendary Pokemon of the game
(similar to the Legendary Birds, Entei/Raikou/Suicune, and the Regis from the
previous games). Speak to it, and instead of entering a battle, you'll be
shown a picture of Mesprit (which will be added to your Pokedex and counted
as "seen") and it will then flee from you.

Rowan will then enter the cave, tell you a bunch of stuff, and then tell you
that you can track Mesprit's position by using the Marking Map Application on
your Poketch (the one with the symbols). On the map, you'll be able to
determine Mesprit's position by the blinking face on the map. In order to
encounter it, you'll need to be at the same location its at and will need to
encounter it inside of tall grass. Be warned, though: it will run immediately
unless you use an attack like Mean Look! Any damage you do or status
conditions you inflict will remain on it for your next encounter if it flees.

Upon returning to Lake Valor, you'll find that all of the water has been
restored. Yay! No more flopping Magikarps! Similar to Lake Verity, you can
Surf over to an island cave or over to a field of tall grass (located south of
the cave). In the field, you can pick up TM25 (Thunder).

Inside of the cave, Azelf waits. However, unlike Mesprit, Azelf will actually
fight you right there - no running. So, save your game (in case you
accidentally knock it out or run out of Ultra or Dusk Balls), and prepare to
fight it.

Azelf knows Nasty Plot, a very potent move that sharply increases Azelf's
Special Attack, making its attacks deadly. Be very cautious about that attack
and try to put it to Sleep or Paralyze it so you give it as few turns to use
it as possible. It is also considerably harder to catch than Dialga or Palkia,
so you'll need to throw lots of Ultra or Dusk Balls at it before you'll catch
it. Since you're in a darkened cave, Dusk Balls will be the most effective
type of Poke Ball to catch it with, but even they will have a low chance of
actually catching it.

Uxie focuses more on defense than offense. It knows Amnesia, which will raise
its Special Defense sharply, making your Special-based attacks much weaker
than they are usually. It also knows Yawn, which will put your Pokemon to
Sleep on the next turn unless you switch it out, so if it uses that attack,
switch out your Pokemon unless you want to be put to Sleep. Dusk Balls are
your friend here, as Uxie is also inside of cave, but they'll still have a
difficult time containing the little yellow pixie.

To get to Route 222, in the Valor Lakefront, near where all of the houses
are, there's a path headed east. A man was blocking your path before,  but
he's gone now, so you can proceed through the Route.

Like many Routes before it, Route 222 has two paths you can take to reach the
end. The first is the northern path, which has more Trainers you have to
fight, while the southern path has fewer required Trainers (although you can
battle all of the Fisherman down there if you talk to them). Your choice. I'd
explore them both to get some much needed EXP.

On the northern path, when you see some steps that you can climb up, instead
try and hug the ledge (although don't actually jump down) and follow it to the
end to find some Honey. Also, talk to the guy on the cliff nearby (he's
looking south) and he'll give you TM56 (Fling).

Still along the northern route, there's a spot with a fenced in field neaby
some steps. Go around the back and you'll find some steps leading up there,
although continue heading east up there until you find a bush that you can
Cut. Cut it down, and you'll snag yourself a Carbos.

The houses to the south don't appear to contain much. The first one has a ton
of Pikachus in it, as well as an old dude. One of the Pikachus is actually a
Trainer who has, what else but, two Pikachus in her team. The other house has
a guy who will measure any Remoraids you bring him, and, if they beat the
record size, you'll get a prize.

`-------'-----------------'

As soon as you enter the city, Flint, a dude with red hair, will walk up to
you and say some stuff about how he's from the Pokemon League and the Gym
Leader in town. He'll then leave you be, although he'll be blocking door to
the Gym for now.

The Gym is having a blackout right now, so before you'll be able to go inside,
you'll first need to check out the lighthouse and talk to Volkner.

Anyway, Sunyshore City has an elevated bridge that can take you to various
locations around the town. To the north of the Pokemon Center and the Poke
Mart is the Sticker Shop, where you can finally buy cool Stickers to put on
your Pokemon's Poke Balls. Yeah, remember that Seal Case you got all the way
back in Solaceon Town? Now you can buy things to put in there. After you've
bought some Stickers, you can set up to twelve Sticker Patterns and assign
them to your Pokemon's Poke Balls by using the second option in your PC (the
selection directly below the one you use to access your boxes). Just remember,
you have to unlink the Pokemon and the Poke Ball before you can trade it or
put it back into the PC.

On the very north edge of town, there's a beach with a face that might be
familliar to you if you've played Pokemon Gold, Silver, or Crystal. Yes,
that's right, the Gym Leader Jasmine is on the beach there. She asks you a
question, although it doesn't seem to have any impact. Oh well, it was nice to
see her.

By taking the bridge, you can access the Gym, the Lighthouse, and you can pick
up a Thunderstone on the southeast side of town, near the rock that looks like
a Munchlax.

Inside of the Lighthouse, you'll find the Gym Leader gazing out over to the
Pokemon League. Talk to him, and he'll return to his duties. You can look
through the viewer if you'd like to see a glimpse of the Pokemon League.

Now, the Gym is still blocked by Flint, but by talking to him, he'll move,
allowing you to enter the Gym and claim your final Gym Badge. This city's Gym
focuses on Electric-type Pokemon, so Ground-type Pokemon will be a huge
advantage here. Nothing else has an advantage against Electric-type attacks,
though. Be sure to stock up on Full Restores, Full Heals, or at the very least
some Parlyz Heals before going in.

This Gym's puzzle is a really interesting one that revolves around using
switches to rotate gears. Basically, the green and blue switches rotate all of
the gears in the room either clockwise or counter-clockwise by 90 degrees,
depending on the color, and there are red switches which rotate the gears 180
degrees.

From the start, step onto the middle gear and hit the switch on the right
gear. Get off of the gear, and then go back onto the middle gear, moving onto
the left gear and hitting the switch on it. Go back east and onto the other
side of the room, right by the doorway and a Trainer.

Inside of the next room, start off by stepping on the blue switch in the
middle three times. Then, walk over to the other platform and up the stairs,
crossing over the bridge gear and eventually onto another gear. Press the
switch once, and then walk over to the green switch. Press that once, fight
the Trainer, and then cross over the gear bridge on your way to the final
room.

In the last room, step on the red switch once, walk off of it and onto the
other gear with the red switch. Press it, and then walk south, fighting the
Trainer and crossing over the gear bridge, all the way over to the green
switch. Press the green switch twice, and then walk south, following the path
that leads you through the connective electricity and over to the blue switch.
Press it once, walk north, down the stairs, cross the bridge to the right, and
then stepping on the red switch on the gear (the first one you hit). Return up
to where you just were (past the gear bridge) and you will now have a nice
path straight to the Gym Leader, Volkner.

Volkner's Raichu has the Ability Static, which has a chance of Paralyzing any
Pokemon that attacks it with a Physical-based attack, so avoid using any
against it unless you're ready to use a healing item or endure the Paralysis.
It, like all of the other Pokemon on Volkner's team, has Charge Beam, which is
a pretty potent Electric-type attack that has a very high chance of raising
the user's Special Attack. Fortunately for you, Raichu's only good stat is its
Speed, which isn't even that high. It has low Defense, although remember that
exploiting that weakness could result in your Pokemon becoming Paralyzed.
Earthquake is the best dose of medicine to give Raichu.

Ambipom is a Normal-type, slowing down your run of Ground-type attack mayhem.
They'll only be normal-effecient against it. Like Raichu, it also has pretty
weak Defense, although it also has some pretty low Special Defense, so feel
free to hit it with a strong attack. It knows Charge Beam, although its
Special Attack isn't nearly as high as its Attack, so its not nearly as bad as
it might seem.

Third up is most likely his Luxray (he will probably switch the order if you
use a Rock- or Ground-type Pokemon against him). Luxray is pretty solid, not
boasting particularly good Defenses, but its certainly able to take a hit. Use
Earthquake or Dig if you can, otherwise just hit it with the strongest attacks
you have. It has very high attack, and it will use strong attacks like Thunder
Fang (has a chance of Paralyzing you, or causing you to Flinch) and Crunch
(chance of lowering your Defense). Be on guard, but don't relent in your
attacks!

Lastly is his Octillery, an odd choice for the master of Electric-type Pokemon
to use. It knows Charge Beam and Aurora Beam, and is pretty solid, although
its very slow, so use that to your advantage. Its attacks will be surprisingly
potent, although since they don't share the same type as it does, they
shouldn't be quite as strong as Denji's other Pokemon's attacks.

After beating him, you will earn yourself the final Gym Badge: the Beacon
Badge, which will make traded Pokemon of any Level obey you without question
as well as let you use Waterfall outside of battle. He will also give you TM57
(Charge Beam), which has a chance of raising the user's Special Attack.

Outside of the Gym, return to Jasmine on the northern beach and speak with
her. She'll be impressed that you got the Gym Badge, and will give you HM07
(Waterfall).

This section is completely optional and only lists areas that you couldn't
previously access before acquiring the ability to climb waterfalls with
Waterfall. Now that you can use it, you might want to stop by the listed

Your path to the Pokemon League starts by Surfing north from Sunyshore City
onto Route 223. Along the way, you'll encounter over a dozen Trainers, most of
which specializing in Water-type Pokemon, so now is the chance to give your
Electric- and Grass-type Pokemon an extra EXP boost.

The Route is pretty straight-forward; all you have to do is head north. There
are some Trainers and Items scattered off the beaten path, though.

I would also like to take this paragraph to say that this guide is created by
Marriland and is not to be sold on sites like eBay. If you paid money for this
guide, demand a refund immediately, and file a complaint.

Near the beginning of the Route, on the west side, you'll see a barrier of
rocks that you can actually go inside of if you find the right spot. Continue
west through that spot, then north and you will find TM18 (Rain Dance) waiting
for you there.

Also, where you have to stop Surfing to get onto a shallow area of water
(where the Sailor is), you can find a Pearl to the northeast.

At the very north end of the Route, you'll find a gigantic Waterfall leading
up to the Pokemon League. However, you won't be able to face off against the
Elite Four until you survive the trial known as Victory Road. There's a
Pokemon Center located directly outside, giving you a chance to heal your
Pokemon.

When you're ready, enter the cavern, and prepare to go through Victory Road!

        '-----------------'

The Pokemon and the Trainers inside of Victory Road have very high levels,
spanning from the mid- to upper-40's range. Your Pokemon should be at least
Level 48 before entering (or trying to complete the whole thing), although I
would recommend lower-to-mid-50's.

From the start, you will have to cross a bridge. Across the bridge, you can
use Rock Climb to get down to the lower area of the first floor, fight the
Psychic, and pick up TM41 (Torment). There's nothing else down here, though,
so Rock Climb your way back up, and then head east.

When you get to a place that you can climb some steps down, do so, fight
against the Birdkeeper, and continue north to pick up a Full Heal. Go back to
where the bridge takes you north and follow that path north, west, and then
north again to a flight of stairs.

Up on the second floor, you can either go north or south. Going north will
lead you to some bike ramps and boulders that you need to move, all of which
will eventually lead you to a Max Ether.

Going south will lead you to a boulder formation like this:
.------.
| #..# |
| .21# |
| .3.# |
| ..## |
'------'
("." denotes the cave floor, "#" denotes a wall, and the numbers 1, 2, and 3
mark the locations of the boulders you need to push.)

Push boulder 1 south, boulder 2 west, and boulder 3 south and you'll be able
to pass. Keep going west until you find another puzzle.

.----------.
| ###..... |
| #..12xxx |
| #.x..... |
| #..R###. |
| #...###. |
'----------'
(Same as the previous one, except "x" denotes unsmashable rocks, and "R"
denotes a smashable rock.)

To solve this one, push the boulder on the left down one tile, then go over to
the smashable rock (marked "R"). Rock Smash it, and then push the boulder
north, up to the Trainer (not shown on diagram). Go east, use Rock Smash
again, fight a Trainer, and then you'll have to solve another puzzle. This one
is easy, though; just push the top-most boulder west and head north and you'll
find yourself at a flight of stairs leading down. However, if you go back down
the stairs and to the puzzle again, you'll be able to go over to the east,
where there are more boulder puzzles, as well as bike ramps that can lead you
to a Full Restore, a Double Battle against the Double Team, and TM71 (Stone
Edge).

Now you'll be back on the first floor. Cross the bridge over to a ledge that
you can use Rock Climb down, but be careful not to jump off of the ledge
below, otherwise you'll have to backtrack. Make your way around the cliff you
were on until you find a Black Belt. Beat him, and you'll reach another flight
of stairs leading down.

Surf over to the Psychic (don't bother taking the north route). Go east, and
then south to find a Double Team. Fight them, and then Surf down the path,
climbing upstairs, to reach a Rare Candy. There's also a Max Revive hidden
nearby, so use your Dowsing Machine.

Go back to where the Psychic was and then Surf north until you reach a
waterfall. Use Waterfall to climb it, and then take the path west until you
find a Dragon Tamer. From here, you can take the southern Waterfall down to
TM59 (Dragon Pulse). Otherwise, beat him, then keep going west, then south
until you find a flight of stairs.

You'll be back on the first floor again. Head west until you get to a Expert.
Keep going west past him and you'll find the Razor Claw. Climbing up the steps
by the Expert and then heading east will lead you to a Zinc and a person
blocking passage into another part of the cave. Otherwise, go south, then up
the cliff to the east so you can fight another Dragon Tamer. Fight him, cross
the bridge, and you'll be at the exit.

Also, south of the Expert in the aforementioned step, instead of going east,
go west, use Rock Climb, and make your way to the flight of stairs. This will
lead you up to a boulder puzzle.

Push boulder 1 west, then boulder 2 west, and then boulder 3 either north or
south to access TM79 (Dark Pulse).

(_| s5.9.3. The Pokemon League |_____________________________________________)

Well, here it is: the Pokemon League! The place where champions are made. Use
Waterfall to ascend the massive Waterfall, and then enter the glorious
building.

Inside, be sure to heal your Pokemon, especially before approaching the door
that a person is blocking. There's also a Poke Mart here that sells pretty
much everything you might need. I highly recommend stocking up on supplies
such as Hyper Potions, Full Restores, Revives, and Full Heals. 10 of each
should be sufficient.

Save your game, and then approach the door. As you do so, Rival will show up
and challenge you to yet another fight. This time, though, his team is quite
formidable.

`'^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^'^^^^^^^^^^^'^^^^^'^^^^'`

Rival's team of Pokemon is quite diverse at this point. He will try to use a
lot of type-matching against you, so the order that he sends out his Pokemon
in depends on what Pokemon you are using. The best advice that I can give is
just try to type-match his Pokemon and send out Pokemon that are effective
against his. If you can't do that, then try to use your strongest attacks. His
starter Pokemon is more than likely your biggest threat, due to its high stats
and level.

After beating him, he will run off again. Now, all that's left is for you to
talk to the person in front of the door. Do so, and he will check to make sure
that you have each of the Gym Badges. Since at this point, you obviously do,
he will step aside and let you take on the Elite Four.

Electric-, Ice-, and Psychic-type attacks are also effective against some of
his Pokemon.

`'======================================'`

You should be fairly familliar with squashing Dustox and Beautifly from all of
your encounters with them in your Team Galactic battles. Dustox can use Toxic
and can also set up a Light Screen, both of which will hamper your ability to
fight at your fullest. Try to take it out with one good Psychic-, Ground-, or
Flying-type attack before it gets a chance to use either of those attacks.

Drapion is Aaron's counter to Flying-type Pokemon. It knows Ice Fang to deal
with anything trying to exploit the rest of his team's weakness. Poison/Dark
is a hard type to find a weakness too. Ground-type attacks are really your
only option if you want to do the most damage. Otherwise, just whittle away at
its HP with your strongest attacks.

Heracross has a lot of offense, similar to Rival's. It knows Infighting and
Mega Horn, both of which are very strong attacks and will do a lot of damage
to anything it hits. It also has Stone Edge in its roster of moves to help
combat Flying-type Pokemon. However, fortunately Heracross is pretty slow, and
it's also 4x weak to Flying, so even a weak Flying-type attack like Aerial Ace
will be more than enough to knock it out.

Vespiquen is very sturdy. It has high defenses and decent HP, so it's a bit
tricky to take down. One good Rock-type attack will rip it apart, though, but
if you don't have one at your disposal, strike it with Electric-, Ice-, or
Flying-type attacks to deal the most damage.

After Aaron comes Bertha, the master of Ground-type Pokemon. She also bears a
striking resemblance to Agatha from the Elite Four of Kanto, doesn't she? If
you have a Grass-type Pokemon, send it to the front of your party now.

`'======================================'`

Quagsire will start out the battle by annoying you. It loves to use Double
Team to raise its evasion, making it harder to hit. It will also whip up a
Sandstorm so your HP will be whittled away while you try and fail hitting it.
Grass-type attacks will make fodder out of it, though.

Hippowdon's Ability will summon forth a Sandstorm when its sent out, so you'll
have to face the whipping sand regardless of whether Quagsire can pull it off
or not. Hit it with your strongest Grass- or Water-type attack to put it out
cold.

Golem has very high Defense, but it is also 4x weak to both Water- and Grass-
type attacks, so using them will knock it out almost positively. Fighting-type
attacks are super effective against it, but its high Defense might prevent
them from knocking it out with one shot. It's very slow, though, but has high
Attack and, as I've already said, high Defense.

Whiscash is also super-weak to Grass-type attacks. Fortunately, it doesn't
have Water Absorb, so if you're running through Kikuno's Pokemon with a Water-
type and don't want to switch, you won't have to, although it will probably
take you two hits to knock it out.

Sudowoodo is really a push over. It has strong attacks, but it's slow and weak
to the same types as the rest of her Pokemon. It should be an easy knockout
unless you don't have any of those types.

Next up comes the third member of the Elite Four, Flint, whom you've seen
earlier in Sunyshore City. He uses Fire-type Pokemon, although really his team
is pretty diverse (due to the lack of Fire-type Pokemon in Sinnoh), so be
ready to take on a variety of types.

`'======================================'`

Rapidash is very quick and can be pretty powerful, so try and douse its fire
with whatever attacks you can throw at it. Its defenses are pretty shaky,
though, so one good hit and its gone.

Infernape is the monster of his team, possessing very powerful moves and high
attack stats to use them. Flare Blitz, a Fire-type Double-Edge move (120 base
power), will do a considerable amount of damage to anything it hits. It also
has Mach Punch to get a jump on your faster Pokemon. Flying- or Water-type
Pokemon are most effective against it, although it has Thunderpunch, so make
sure that it can take the hit. Also try to avoid using your Rock-type Pokemon
here.

Steelix has massive Defense, as always, but it's slow as tar and is very weak
to Water- or Fire-type attacks. If you have any Special-based Fighting- or
Ground-type attacks, those will be effective as well, although its Defense
will prevent any Physical-based ones from being very potent.

Drifblim has great HP, and it also knows Baton Pass, although it never seemed
to do anything more than provide a slight annoyance against me.

His Lopunny has Mirror Coat, which will counter any of your Special-based
attacks, so try and use Physical-based attacks against it unless you want to
risk getting knocked out. 

Once you've beaten Flint, only one more Elite Four member will be remaining:
Lucian. Lucian uses strong Psychic-type Pokemon. He'll start off with a Mr.
Mime, so try and start with a Dark- or Ghost-type Pokemon or a Pokemon with a
Dark-type attack (like Crunch or Dark Pulse).

`'======================================'`

Mr. Mime knows both Light Screen and Reflect, which will half your Special-
based and Physical-based damage for 5 turns respectively. It has Psychic and
Thunderbolt to inflict some damage.

Medicham is a monster with its high Attack stat (thanks to its Ability, Pure
Power). It uses Thunder Punch, Ice Punch, Fire Punch, and Drain Punch
(Fighting-type move). Although it doesn't have any Psychic-type moves, its
Physical-based Punches will be very strong and they cover a very wide range of
different type weaknesses, so you need to try and take it out as quickly as
possible. Its defenses are pretty low, though, so a quick, strong attack will
inflict heavy damage on it. Flying-type attacks are also very effective
against it.

Alakazam is very fast and very strong. It knows Focus Blast, a Special-based
Fighting-type move that inflicts heavy damage. Very nasty if you're planning
on using a Dark-type Pokemon against it. It also knows Psychic, which will do
a ton of damage to pretty much anything that isn't Dark-type.

Lucian's Bronzong has very high Defense and Special Defense, although it has
rather low Special Attack, so you're in luck. However, it will use Calm Mind
frequently, which will raise both its Special Attack and Special Defense.
After using that, its Psychic attack will be quite strong. It also knows Gyro
Ball which is effective against your faster Pokemon.

Girafarig is deceptively effective at throwing Psychic around. It will do some
decent damage. Other than that, Girafarig shouldn't be too much of a threat.
Dark-type attacks are your best bet against it. Be sure not to use Ghost-type
attacks, though, because it has full immunity to them due to it being part
Normal-type.

Once you've beaten Lucian, heal your Pokemon to full HP, then walk down the
path to face the Pokemon League Champion... Cynthia!

There aren't a lot of common weaknesses is Cynthia's team. Her Spiritomb
doesn't have any weaknesses, actually, so don't worry so much about what
Pokemon you start with in this fight. With its high Defense and Special
Defense and total lack of weakness, Spiritomb will likely take a few good
shots to take down. Its offenses aren't that great, though, so at least you
shouldn't be too threatened.

Gastrodon's only real weakness is Grass-type attacks, so if you don't have any
of those, try to rely on using your strongest Physical-based attacks against
it, because it has lower Defense than it does Special Defense. Be careful,
though, because it has strong moves such as Earthquake, Stone Edge, Muddy
Water, and even Sludge Bomb.

Her Milotic can be a real pain to take down. It's weak to Electric- and Grass-
type attacks, although it has the HP and defenses to take a good hit from one
of them and still survive. Avoid inflicting it with a status ailment, though,
because otherwise its Marvel Scale Ability will kick in and raise its Defense
by 1.5x. It also has Mirror Coat, which is nasty if you use a Special-based
attack against it, because it will inflict double that damage back to you
(unless you knock it out, of course). Avoid using them if you can.

Garchomp is a fierce Dragon/Ground-type Pokemon with high Attack and Speed. It
also has nice HP, as well as decent defenses, making it quite hardy and a
challenge to take down. It can use Dragon Rush, an extremely powerful Dragon-
type attack; Earthquake, which is just plain nasty and it gets the Same Type
Attack Bonus, making it really deadly; Giga Impact, which is like a beefed up
Hyper Beam; and Brick Break for a nice, solid Fighting-type attack. Your best
bet against it is a strong Ice-type attack (beware Brick Break, though!) or a
Dragon-type attack of your own, although otherwise just strike it with your
strongest attacks and try to keep your HP as high as possible.

Lucario, which you probably haven't fought against since your fight with
Maylene, is a difficult Pokemon to take down due to its great types. Fighting-,
Ground-, and Fire-type attacks are awesome against Lucario, but nearly
everything else is really quite ineffective. It knows Dragon Pulse,
Earthquake, Psychic, and Aura Sphere, giving it a very large array of powerful
attacks. It also has high Attack and Special Attack, as well as good Speed,
but fortunately its defensive stats aren't so hot. Use that to your advantage.

Her Roserade shouldn't be quite as difficult compared to the rest of her
Pokemon, but it's still a formidable foe. It boasts very high Special Attack
and quite high Special Defense, and its Speed isn't half bad either. It can
use Sludge Bomb, which will put a serious dent in your Pokemon's HP. Steel-
type Pokemon are amazing to use against Roserade.

After beating all six of Cynthia's Pokemon, she will tell you to climb the
platform up. Do so, and you'll be taken through the door. Inside, Cynthia will
lead you to where you register yourself and your Pokemon as the new Pokemon
League Champions. Professor Rowan will also join you and congratulate you on
your accomplishment.

Congratulations! You are the new Pokemon League Champion!!

( s6. POST-GAME AND OPTIONAL AREAS | ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: )
 `~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

This section contains all of the locations and areas to explore that aren't
really required for you to visit, but offer a really nice reward and a reason
to visit, or have something neat about them.

Some of these are only available after you have completed the Sinnoh Dex,
which involves seeing all 150 Pokemon in the Sinnoh Dex. Check section 8.6. to
see a list of all of the Pokemon in the Sinnoh Dex and where to find them, and
then check out section 6.1. to see what to do to get the National Dex.

 _____________________________________________________________________________
/ | s6.1. Receiving the National Dex |                                       /
`-'----------------------------------'--------------------------------------`
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s6.1.1. Twinleaf Town |__________________________________________________)

After your first time beating the Elite Four and the League Champion, you will
awaken in your room when you load your game (actually, you'll appear here any
time after beating the Elite Four). Go down the stairs, and your mother will
come over to tell you that Rival took a ship in Snowpoint City. Hmm,
interesting? But, not for now. Right now, you should have thing on your mind:
the National Dex!

In order to get the National Dex, you will need to have seen the 150 Pokemon
in the Sinnoh Dex. All of these Pokemon can be found throughout the course of
normal gameplay provided you have fought most of the Trainers in the game.
Remember, you don't need to have caught the Pokemon - merely seeing it will
do. At this point, assuming that you have battles every Trainer in the game so
far and haven't done any outside trades, you should have a hardy 149 Pokemon
in your Pokedex. If not, check out section 8.6. of this Walkthrough for a
list of where to see every single Pokemon you need to complete the Sinnoh Dex.

Chances are there's one Pokemon that you'll be missing, which is either #149
or #150, depending on which version you have. To see this Pokemon for your
Sinnoh Dex, return to Celestic Town.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s6.1.2. Celestic Town |__________________________________________________)

Unless you have done some trading, you haven't seen Palkia or Dialga
(depending on your version; Palkia in Diamond) yet. You'll need to see the
other game's legendary in order to complete your Pokedex. Now, although the
Pokemon cannot be caught or encountered in your game, the old lady that you
met in Celestic Town during your last visit here has a picture of that Pokemon
to help complete your Pokedex.

You can find the old lady in the large house on the north side of town. Talk
to her, and she will show you the picture, counting toward seeing the Pokemon
for the sake of your Pokedex. She'll actually show you this picture whenever
you talk to her after you see either Dialga or Palkia at the Spear Pillar, but
now is probably the best time to talk to her about it.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s6.1.3. Sandgem Town |___________________________________________________)

Back in Sandgem Town, talk to Professor Rowan inside of his lab after
completing the Sinnoh Pokedex, and he will be amazed that you have seen all
150 Pokemon on the Sinnoh Dex. Just then, Professor Oak will stop in, do some
chit-chatting, and then power up your Pokedex, upgrading it so it has National
Dex capabilities.

After Professor Oak leaves, Rowan will give you the Poke Radar. The Poke Radar
is a useful gadget that you can use in any field on the world map to help
locate wild Pokemon, including Pokemon that you haven't yet encountered or
wouldn't normally be in the area without using the Poke Radar.

To use the Poker Rdar, enter a field of grass (without riding the Bicycle) and
use the Poke Radar. Some of the grass will then start to shake, and some will
show signs of rustling in it (by flashing, kind of). Walking into either of
these patches will trigger a fight against a wild Pokemon, possibly a Pokemon
new to the area, although walking into the rustling grass will have a higher
chance of encountering better Pokemon. If you defeat the Pokemon or capture
it, there will be more rustling grass outside of the battle, up to 2
additional times after first using the Poke Radar. Running away from a fight
will not allow you to encounter any more shaking grass without using the Poke
Radar again. Like the Vs. Seeker, the Poke Radar requires you to take a
certain amount of steps before you can use it again, although it's only 50
steps instead of 100.

Apparently you can use the Poke Radar to help you locate exceedingly rare
"Shiny" Pokemon. Very, very rarely, a patch of grass may turn white and glow
red, to purple, to blue. I have not personally seen this, although I have
heard about this.

Corona Genesis said this about finding Shiny Pokemon with the Poke Radar:

      "The patch was mostly white, and it had red which changed to
      purple and blue glowing from inside it. I was incredibly annoyed
      when I realized I couldn't get to it. I hope someone else
      encounters one and confirms what it is."

If you run into a situation like that, everyone seems to agree that using a
Repel is the best thing you can do, so then you won't encounter any wild
Pokemon other than the ones with the Poke Radar.

Now that you have the National Dex, loads of new locations and adventures will
become available to you. You can take them on in any order, unless I say
otherwise.

/ | s6.2. The Pal Park |                                                     /
`-'--------------------'----------------------------------------------------`

The Pal Park is the place where you can transfer Pokemon from your GBA games
to your Diamond or Pearl game. You can actually visit the Pal Park and the
surrounding Routes as soon as you are able to use Surf, although you will not
be able to use any of the Pal Park features until after you acquire the
National Dex after completing the game.

There's plenty of Trainers here to fight. Like many Routes, there are two
paths that you can take through this one: the left/south-route and the
right/north-route. The route to the right, which will eventually become the
northern route, has only one Trainer to fight, but no items to pick up.

By the two Swimmers, you can find an Ether on the east beach, and you can
find a Splash Plate on the beach south of that. On the shore with the Ether,
you can also Surf east to take a path over to two more Trainers that
eventually leads to Route 221.

More east, you can find a Carbos in some shallow water. Pick it up, and then
take the northeast path instead of the southeast path, otherwise you'll just
run into a dead end with a Trainer.

        '-----------------'

Near the area you enter the Route, by the Swimmer, you can find a Protein on a
small slice of land. Keep going until you hit the shore. On the shore, you can
find a Sweet Honey nearby. Again, there are two paths to this Route.

Going north through the grass-filled path will lead you to a house with an old
man inside. He'll ask to see a Pokemon at a specific Level (it appears to be
random every day) and your job will be to show him a Pokemon at that Level. I
have no clue what you get if you do this, but I'd imagine something. To the
west of the house, you can find a Pure Incense.

Back there is just a dead end, though, so return to where you were at and then
either take the east path or the southeast path to reach the Pal Park. The
southeast path has more Trainers and tall grass, although it also contains
TM81 (X-Scissor) near the end of it.

Regardless of which way you take, at the end of the Route lies the Pal Park.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s6.2.4. Pal Park |_______________________________________________________)

As you enter the Pal Park, if you have already gotten the National Dex,
Professor Oak will be inside and will tell you that you can now transfer
Pokemon from Kanto or Hoenn into the Pal Park. He'll also give you the
Trainer Counter for your Poketch, which shows you a ranking of the top 3
Pokemon that you've seen the most of by using the Pokeradar. He also says
something about Eterna City, and then leaves.

Now, by transferring Pokemon from your GBA games, you are able to catch the
transferred Pokemon inside of the Pal Park. You can transfer up to 6 Pokemon
per GBA game every 24 hours into the Pal Park (and, for those of you who like
to time jump and set the Nintendo DS clock ahead, doing that will make you
wait another 24 hours).

To do this, insert a a copy of Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, or
LeafGreen into the GBA slot of your Nintendo DS. On the menu screen (Continue,
New Game, Settings...), there should be a new option for you to select called
"Migrate from [GBA game]". Select this option, and you will be able to choose
6 Pokemon from your GBA game by using the stylus to select them. The selected
Pokemon cannot have any HM moves learned, otherwise you will not be able to
transfer them, so be sure to make use of the version's Move Deleter before
attempting this.

After you have selected your 6 Pokemon, you will be asked if you want to
permanently transfer the Pokemon from the GBA game to your Diamond or Pearl
version. THE POKEMON WILL BE GONE FOREVER IN YOUR GBA GAME IF YOU DO THIS!
Upon answering yes via stylus, you will be asked one more time for
confirmation, and if you say yes again, the Pokemon will be transferred into
the Pal Park.

Now, load up your save, and talk to the technician at the gate of the Pal Park
and he'll ask if you want to try and catch the Pokemon that you transferred
over. Agree, and you'll be given 6 Park Balls to catch the Pokemon inside of
the Pal Park. If you are transferring any Water-type Pokemon, it is
recommended that you keep a Pokemon with Surf in your party.

The Pal Park is a pretty simple place; there are patches of grass scattered
about. The 6 Pokemon that you transferred will be hiding inside of the tall
grass and on the water, and your job is to track all of them down. You might
also only have a limited amount of time to do this (although I have yet to run
out of time, I have heard that there is a time limit). Certain Pokemon will
favor certain parts of the Pal Park and will be more likely to be found in
those areas. For instance, Rock-type Pokemon will be more commonly encountered
in the northeastern part of the Pal Park, in the rocky area, and Bug-type
Pokemon will be easier to find in the foresty northwestern area.

After catching all 6 transferred Pokemon, you will be escorted out of the Pal
Park and will be judged based on several factors, one of which being how
quickly you caught the Pokemon. Depending on how well you did, you will
receive an item (I always got berries). Answer Yes to the question, and your
newly-transferred Pokemon will be sent to your PC.

All Pokemon that you transfer retain all of their stats, moves, held items, OT
and ID No., gender, nickname, etc. Pretty much, exactly like they were in the
GBA game. (Actually, I'm not sure on this, but there is a chance that certain
Pokemon's abilities may change when transferred, due to the addition of new
abilities for certain Pokemon.)

`-'------------------------------------------'------------------------------`

The Battle Zone (aka the Northeast Island) is that large island that you may
have seen earlier in looking over your Town Map. After beating the Elite 4 and
obtaining the National Dex, you will be able to reach the Battle Zone, home to
many exotic Pokemon that you have not encountered before. There are plenty of
Trainers, most of which possessing Pokemon between level 50 and 60, with
plenty of Pokemon that probably aren't on your Pokedex (from the previous
generations of Pokemon).

| ITEMS | Super Rod       |
`-------'-----------------'

Although you can visit the Fight Area after beating the Elite 4, there's not
really much to do other than visit the Battle Tower until after you obtain the
National Dex. If you don't have your National Dex yet, it's highly recommended
that you get it now.

You can now take the ferry in Snowpoint City over to the Battle Zone. When you
do so, Rival will meet you there, along with some other person with red hair
Rival will then run off to the Battle Tower.

This is basically just a start area for your voyage on the northeast island,
and doesn't really offer you anything major except paths leading around the
island.

The old lady inside of the Poke Mart will give you a Scope Lens if you talk to
her. You are also finally able to get the Super Rod by talking to the
Fisherman on the northwestern side of the area, near the entrance to Route
225. Just answer Yes to his question and he'll give you the Super Rod, which
you can use to catch high-level Water-type Pokemon.

Now, to the northwest is the path to Route 225, which is probably the main
path you'll want to take at this point. On the eastern side of the area, there
are two exits. The northern one leads you to the Battle Park, which is where
the Battle Tower is located; the eastern one will lead you to Route 230, which
requires you to Surf. Taking Route 230 will lead you over to the Resort Area.

If you want to check out the Resort Area, proceed to section 6.3.11. (Route
230). Keep in mind that you'll have to read the sections in backwards order and
with backwards directions, because I assume that the reader goes onto Route 225
first.

For now, you might as well start by checking out the Battle Park.

| ITEMS | Razor Fang      |
`-------'-----------------'

On your way to the Battle Park, everyone inside of the intermediate building
will face you and will tell you that you need a Point Card to proceed.
Fortunately, they'll give you the Point Card, which is used to keep track of
all of the Battle Points (BP) that you earn while in the Battle Tower. You can
use your BP to purchase a wide selection of TMs and other useful Held Items.

The front area of the Battle Park resembles a garden, with hedges and bushes
scattered all around. In the southwest corner of the Park, you can find a
Sharp Fang. On the northern end of the Battle Park, there are two doors into
one building (with an elevated bridge adjoining them, leaving a path in the
middle). This is where you can spend all of your BP.

But where's the Battle Tower, you ask? The Battle Tower is between the
building, to the north. As you try and pass through, a man with blonde hair
that somewhat resembles Rival will bump into you, and then run into the
building. Rival will then run up from behind, bumping into you as well, and
talk about the Battle Tower and the Stark Mountain. He'll then walk into the
Battle Tower. You might as well do the same.

From what I can tell, the receptionist on the left has something to do with DS
Wifi, the receptionist on the right lets you battle a random player over Wi-
Fi. Lastly, the one in the middle lets you fight against computer-controlled
opponents in either a Single Battle (first option) or a Double Battle (second
option). If you do, all of your Pokemon will be set to Level 50 (or, if your
Pokemon's levels are 100, they will be set to 100). You will have to fight 7
battles in a row, and if you're successful in all of them, you'll win some BP.

To the north of the Fight Area is Route 225.

This a surprisingly long and complicated Route that is much larger than you
would at first think. There are also some Pokemon that you haven't encountered
before here, such as Raticate and Fearow.

To start things off, there's an HP Up atop a cliff to the west of the
entrance, accessable by using Rock Climb.

Head north, up to the three Trainers (which you can choose to engage in either
Single- or Double-battle, depending on which direction the northwest one is
facing). You can snag yourself a Rare Candy by using Cut on the bushes to the
east of the three Trainers. 

Now, if you have Surf, take the north route and Surf across the water and then
climb the set of steps you find there, crossing the bridge over. Otherwise, go
west, and make your way to where there you just take a set of steps down and
there's another to the south of you. You can climb the steps to the south and
cross the bridge to pick up an Ultra Ball, otherwise just proceed to head
east, under the bridge, and climbing the set of steps up to where you can take
another bridge north.

Make your way across the mess of bridges, past two Trainers (picking up a
Revive as you go), until you get to a house. Inside of the house, a Worker
will give you a Fresh Water (umm, ok?). There's also a Lax Incense to the
west of his house, behind some bushes that you can Cut down.

Up on the cliff, you can Surf across the water to reach a Dubious Disc.

Keep following the path (you can save a few encounters if you have Cut), which
is pretty straightforward, until you reach a large field of grass with some
rocks that you can use Rock Climb on and a sign to the east. Use Rock Climb to
scale the rocks if you have it and you'll enter a Trainer fight against the
Dragon Tamer. After beating him, pick up a second Dawn Stone.

Continue heading east, past the sign, and you'll reach the Survival Area.

Not really much to see or do here for now. There's a Pokemon Center to heal
your Pokemon, and a Poke Mart to buy some supplies at. You can talk to the
Black Belt inside of the house on the bottom of the cliffs and he'll give you
TM42 (Facade), but that's pretty much it. Make your way east to Route 226.

Use Rock Climb to the north of the entrance and you'll be able to take a path
to a secret elevated part of the Survival Area with a lone house. Inside is a
Hiker, although I haven't quite figured out what he does yet.

Rock Climb on the rocks to the west and fight the Ace Trainer if you want.
You can use Rock Climb on the northern rocks to go up to some berries, but
otherwise Rock Climb down the eastern cliff. Go east and there will be two
more choices of where to Rock Climb. Taking the southern path will lead you to
a Carbos. Taking the northern path will lead you to a field of tall grass,
some Trainers, and a Lagging Tail to your left.

At the Trainers, taking the eastern-most path with Rock Climb will lead you to
a small ledge with TM53 (Energy Ball) on it. Using Rock Climb on the first set
of rocks will lead you down closer to the bottom, near the shore. Use Surf and
sail east until you reach a house on a small island. Inside of the house,
speak with the man there, and he apparently appears to be multi-lingual. After
speaking to him once, speak with him again and he will offer to trade you a
Magikarp for a Finneon.

A PP Up is hidden behind the house. Use the Dowsing Machine to find it.

Sailing the southern west route will lead you to a dead end with a Trainer.

Taking the northern west route will bring you to a field of tall grass with a
signpost, and a choice: head north to Route 227 and Stark Mountain, or east to
Route 228, Route 229, and the Resort Area.

There is falling soot and ash all over the Route thanks to the nearby volcano
in Stark Mountain. This Route will require you to do a little bit of bike
jumping and avoid falling down ledges.

Cross the first ramp over to the Elite Trainer, then cross the next ramp over
to the Pokemon Ranger. Jump down the ledge to the left and you'll eventually
see Rival and Crasher Wake (from Pastoria City). They'll say some stuff about
Stark Mountain, and will then leave in seperate directions. (Rival also says
something about 21 wins in the Battle Tower.)

Inside of the house that they were near, talk to the old lady and answer Yes
to her question to restore your Pokemon's HP.

Now, climb the steps and cross the narrow bike bridge over to the other side
and you'll find the person with red hair that you saw with Rival when you
first boarded the northeast island, who reveals his name as Buck. He'll then
head up to Stark Mountain.

Head a little bit west, to the patch of grass. If you have it, use Rock Climb
to go down to the bottom of the cliff, near a lake and a small patch of grass.
Head east down there and you'll find Charcoal, which is used to power up Fire-
type attacks. Climb back up the rocks and then take the narrow bike bridge
over to a Trainer and a Zinc.

Back at the patch of grass, go northeast, jump down the two ledges to the
Black Belt, then keep heading north to reach the outside of Stark Mountain.

At the foot of Stark Mountain, you can either climb stairs or use Rock Climb
on some rocks to the west. Climbing the rocks will lead you to a Trainer and
another set of rocks to climb down. Climb them down, and then climb up the
rocks nearby to reach a Life Orb. Climb back down the rocks and you can get
back to Route 227 if you jump down one of the ledges (there's a Protein hidden
in the rock that you can reach by taking the left ledge), or you can just Rock
Climb your way back to where you were.

Anyway, back at the foot, climb the steps and you'll be at a field of tall
grass. In the northeast corner of it is an Ether.  The entrance to Stark
Mountain is to the west.

Start by using Rock Smash on the rock, and then using Strength to push the
boulder two tiles to the east, and then push it north, down the steps.

Push the western boulder two tiles to the west and then go around to get an
Escape Rope.

At the eastern set of three rocks, push both the north and south boulder one
tile to the east, then push the middle boulder one tile either north or south.
Climb the southern steps up to find a PP Up, turn around and keep going north.
Climb up the steps, push the boulder all the way to the east, and make your
way over to the west side of the room. Climb up the steps, grab the Burn Heal
in the corner, and use Rock Smash to smash the rock blocking your path. Climb
up the steps, and then push the boulder to your right east, but not all the
way (make sure it doesn't cover or go past the steps on the other side). Climb
up the steps, then east, down the steps, over to the Full Restore.

Now, go back to the west, and up the stairs to Rival. He'll say something
about Buck, the Battle Tower, and the Battle Zone. Proceed deeper into the
cave, and into the next room, where you'll notice that the camera is zoomed
out. Go north a little bit, and you'll find Buck, who will say some stuff and
then join your party.

His Claydol is rather sturdy and should be able to take a hit or two. It knows
Psychic, Ancientpower, and Light Screen (quite possibly Reflect, too, although
I never saw it use it). One thing to keep in mind while you're in the fight
with Buck's Claydol: use Earthquake! Since Claydol has the ability Levitate,
Ground-type attacks won't affect Claydol, so you'll effectively inflict damage
on your adversaries alone and not your own partner! Quite helpful, because a
lot of the Pokemon in the area are weak to Ground-type attacks. And, as always
with Partners, your Pokemon will be fully restored after each fight.

While you have Buck in your party, you will be unable to use Rock Climb to
access ledges and other areas. You'll have to investigate this place later -
without Buck - if you want to snag all of the goodies here.

        '-----------------'

Now, this place is very large. There are Trainers and items scattered all
around. I will try to do my best to list the locations of all of them, but
your best bet is to just kind of do some exploring on your own. Just so you
know, your destination should be directly north of the door that you entered
from, although you will have to do a lot of manuevering to the west in order
to get there.

There is nothing waiting for you in the southwest corner, so don't even bother
going there. In the northwest corner, which is accessable from the lower-
level, you can move a boulder using Strength and fight the two Ace Trainers
(either in a Double Battle, or in a Single Battle if you talk to them
individually) that are guarding TM50 (Overheat) to the south.

A Calcium can be found in the middle area, in a trench, to the north of the
Black Belt and Birdkeeper. In the very southeast corner, past the two
Psychics, you can find an Iron Ball by walking down the steps and running to
the west in the trench there.

In the northeastern corner, head to the east until you reach the middle area.
Fight the Veteran and Dragon Tamer (either in a Double or Single Battle,
depending on how you engage them), then proceed up the stairs. To your left,
you will find a Max Revive.

Back at the northeastern corner, go a little bit south, then west. Climb up to
the upper level, and then go northwest and back down to the lower level,
fighting the two Ace Trainers. To the west of them, use Rock Smash and
continue westward, climbing up the stairs to the south and fighting the Dragon
Tamer and Black Belt in your way. Head west, around the parameter of the room,
until you reach some stairs leading down into a trench. Follow the trench
east, using Strength to move the boulder, and then up the stairs into a cave.

As you arrive, Buck will say some stuff, and then go into the cave. Follow him
inside, and he will then take some rock thing and leave. Now would be a great
time to use an Escape Rope!

Afterwards, return to the Survival Area and talk to Buck in the house to the
west of the Pokemon Center. He'll run off again, back to Stark Mountain, to
check out results of the earthquake that happened up there.

Make your way past the first part of the dungeon, to the very large room with
the zoomed out camera. You can now use Rock Climb to access shortcuts and more
items, so use that to make haste to the northern part of the cave, where the
rear cave was. Before doing so, you might want to pick up an Ultra Ball on a
large elevated area in the middle of the place (by the Birdkeeper and Black
Belt), and pick up a Max Elixir down a pit somewhere else in the area.

Inside of the room, in the center of the circle of rocks that you might have
noticed earlier, will be one big, ugly Heatran looking at you.

Yes, Heatran can be either Male or Female, although it doesn't really matter
since it can't breed with anything, so take your pick. Either way, it's ugly!
Ha ha, sorry. Heatran is one pretty rough Level 70 Legendary Pokemon. It is
highly susceptible to Ground-type attacks, and Water- or Fighting-type attacks
will also be effective at removing its health. It knows Lava Plume, Fire Spin,
Scary Face, and Iron Head. Be prepared to have your active Pokemon unable to
switch, because Fire Spin will lock it in its place, preventing you from
switching out. Lava Plume and Iron Head will both be very strong attacks, so
be weary! Try to inflict Sleep or Paralysis upon it, whittle its health away
(taking care not to knock it out), then chuck Dusk Balls at it until you catch
it.

Unfortunately, from what I've seen, nothing exciting or dramatic happens after
catching Heatran. At least you get the pride of catching something big and
nasty like that! Oh yeah, and you can use it in battle, too.

        '-----------------'

Instead of going north a little past the Survival Area up to Stark Mountain,
you can continue heading east onto Route 228. There's a large sandstorm
brewing in the desert lands of Route 228, so all Pokemon that aren't part
Rock-, Ground-, or Steel-type will receive some damage after each turn in
battle.

There's some pretty nice items that you can pick up on Route 228. The first of
which is the Protector, an item that lets you evolve Rhydon. It can be found
in a pit to the east. Now, like many Routes, there are two ways to get through
this one; one has more Trainers than the other. The shortcut can be found if
you make your way to the eastern side of the Route, then ascend the bicycle
slope to the north. Just follow the narrow bridges until you arrive near the
southern part of the Route. There's a Shiny Stone at the very end of the
narrow bridges, although you can get to it regardless of if you take the
shortcut or not (it's around where the shortcut takes you).

The normal way involves you making your way south-bound. Around the field of
grass, use Rock Smash and snag the Clean Skin on the ledge. The old man inside
of the nearby house will teach one of the final evolutions of any Starter
Pokemon from any generation (this means Charizard, Meganium, Empoleon, etc.)
either Blast Burn, Frenzy Plant, or Hydro Cannon, depending on its type. I'm
thinking that he will only teach a move once, although I haven't confirmed
this. I'm not really a fan of these kind of moves, so I wouldn't really bother
unless you want it as a novelty, or unless you really like those moves for
some odd reason.

Keep going south, fight the two Pokemon Rangers, and pick up TM37 (Sandstorm)
along your way. Also, right around here is where you come out of the shortcut,
so pick up the Shiny Stone on the ledge to the right if you haven't already.

You're almost to the end of the Route. You will see another muddy slope a
little bit more to the south, although its rather tricky to climb due to its
awkard positioning. Your best bet is to approach it from the south, then make
the turn to the right, then north very quickly. There's a house up there with
what appears to be little of interest, other than an old man and some books.
There's also a Psychic you can fight with some nifty Ghost-type Pokemon you
might want to have seen in your Pokedex.

        '-----------------'

Not much to this route, really. Lots of wild Bug- and Grass-type Pokemon, so
your Flying- or Fire-type Pokemon will have a hay-day here. Surprisingly
enough, there are very few Trainers in the area.

The path straight to the south has two Trainers that you can fight in a Double
Battle (or a Single Battle, depending on how you talk to them), and then it's
smooth sailing to the Resort Area. The east path has a lot more of interest and
two other Trainers. Either way takes you to the Resort Area, although the
western path also can lead you onto the aquatic Route 230.

I'll just cover the east side, because that's where everything is. From the
northern part of the Route, head east. There's a bush that you can Cut down to
find a Reaper Cloth. There's also a Full Restore located in the northeast
corner of the Route, and you can talk to an older dude kind of to the south of
where you found the Reaper Cloth and he'll give you a Nugget. Umm, ok? He
probably gives you something else or something, because that's the kind of
stuff that's supposed to be in items, not given to you. Heh. Oh well.

Keep going south a bit, and Cut the bush to get into a secluded lake with a
Protein. You can also pick up a Large Mushroom that's hidden on the other side
of the lake, on the small patch of land. Use the Item Finder if you are really
inept at locating a hidden item on such a small piece of land.

And, at the southern end of either path you take, is the Resort Area.

| ITEMS | Nugget          |
`-------'-----------------'

You can find a Nugget in the southeast corner of the area, by hugging a fence
near the lake. There's also another Nugget hidden inside of the tree in the
center of the lake. Use your Dowsing Machine to pinpoint its location.

There's really not a lot to do here. There's a Pokemon Center, two houses with
people who don't give you any items (my least favorite kind of people!), and
one really large building on the east side called the Ribbon Syndicate.

To get in, you apparently have to have a certain number of Ribbons on your
Pokemon. I have heard conflicting reports to the exact number, but I believe
it is between 5 and 10.

Inside, you can purchase really expensive Ribbons for your Pokemon. The first
Ribbon - Gorgeous Ribbon - costs $10,000; the second, the Royal Ribbon, costs
$10,000; and the third, the Gorgeous Royal Ribbon costs - get this - $999,999!

You can also treat one of your Pokemon to a spa treatment once per day here to
help increase its happiness.

`-------'-----------------'

Not really much on the eastern side of this Route. Just Surf west, fighting
through any Trainers that you want, until you reach a cliff. Surf south and
then continue west, fighting a Trainer if you want.

On the eastern part of the little island, use Rock Smash to reach a Rare Candy.
There's also a PP Up and a Carbos hidden around the island, which you can find
by using the Dowsing Machine.

When you're done on the island, keep Surfing west until you get back to the
coast of the Fight Area, completing your tour of the Battle Zone.

/ | s6.4. Catching Cresselia |                                               /
`-'--------------------------'----------------------------------------------`

A boy in Canalave City has fallen ill and the only cure to his sickness is the
Lunar Wing, guarded by the legendary Pokemon Cresselia. By completing this
side-quest, you will have the opportunity to catch Cresselia, as well as visit
Fullmoon Isle.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s6.4.1. Canalave City |__________________________________________________)

Inside of the house right near the ship that took you to Iron Island is a
resting boy and his mother. After unlocking the National Dex, talk to the boy
and his mother and they will tell you about Fullmoon Isle. Now, talk to the
sailor outside and he'll take you to Fullmoon Isle.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s6.4.2. Fullmoon Isle |__________________________________________________)

There's really not much to Fullmoon Isle. It's just a small little island out
in the middle of nowhere. But, the lone inhabitant of the isle is a Legendary
Pokemon known as Cresselia. Walk along the island until you find the entrance
to another area. Inside, is Creseria. Talk to it, and you will see its picture
right before it flees from you, leaving behind the Lunar Wing.

Similarly to Mesprit, Cresselia will run around on the world map, and you can
track its location by using the Marking Map. The way I tracked it down was by
riding the Bicycle back and forth between Solaceon Town and either Route 209
or Route 210 until it appeared near the Route I was near. If it started to
approach the opposite side, I switched to that side and rode back and forth
until it was on my Route. It will sometimes teleport randomly on the Marking
Map to a totally new location, so it's not 100% predictable.

`'^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^'^^^^^^^^^^^'^^^^^'^^^^'`

Cresselia is at Level 50 when you encounter it (her, rather), and all it will
do is run from you on the first turn. It will enter the battle with the normal
battle theme instead of a legendary one (like what Mesprit had), so be
attentive! It's a very difficult Pokemon to catch, so try and inflict it with
Sleep to increase your chances of it staying inside of the Ball that you throw
at it (this will not prevent it from running, though) as well as whittle away
its health with your attacks (if you want to increase your chances of
capturing it in future encounters). It has a lot of HP, Defense, and Special
Defense, so even your strongest attacks aren't too likely to knock it out.
Remember, all damage that you do and status ailments you inflict will remain
on it (excluding any stat-lowering effects, like Growl), even after it runs.

All and all, it took me over 20 Dusk Balls when its HP was just a sliver and
it was Asleep, so it really is a very difficult Pokemon to catch! I strongly
recommend trying to catch it at night so you can use Dusk Balls, because Ultra
Balls are bound to be less effective. Of course, maybe I was just really
unlucky...

Cresselia's specialty is its hardiness; it has great HP, Defense, and Special
Defense, making it a really good tank. It learns a lot of defensive moves,
with a few offensive ones thrown in there. Sure, it won't do the most damage
with its attacks, but it is very good at taking them.

After catching Cresselia, return to the boy in Canalave City and he will be
cured of his illness. His father, the sailor, will come in and thank you. (You
might be able to do this anytime after getting the Lunar Wing - I didn't
test.) Now, the child will be walking around whenever you go inside of the
house and will talk about Byron when you speak to him.

Also, Byron will now be in the empty house on Iron Island (again, I didn't
test to see when he gets there; before or after the National Dex, before or
after catching Cresselia, or before or after giving the boy the Lunar Wing).
Talk to him and he will give you the Metal Coat, which can be used to evolve
your Onix into Steelix and Scyther into Scizor. He'll leave the house after
giving you the Metal Coat.

A new path on Route 214 has opened up, leading to an eerie lake with a
puzzling cave. Deep inside lurks the legendary Pokemon, Giratina. Are you
brave enough to enter the Turnback Cave?
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s6.5.1. Route 214 |______________________________________________________)

About mid-way through Route 214, on the eastern side, there will be a new path
leading into the forest. By following the path, you will find your way to a
mysterious area known as the Spring Path.

There are some strong wild Pokemon in the tall grass, with levels reaching
into the 50s. You will find a cliff that you can climb up to with Rock Climb,
taking you to the rim of a large crater-like lake. Go either left or right
(the right path has less tall grass) and make your way over to the other side
of the rim, where you can use Rock Climb to climb down the cliff to the
entrance to a cave. If you have a Pokemon with Defog on you, enter the cave;
otherwise, turn back and get one.

The Turnback Cave is, from what I've gathered, a randomly-generated dungeon.
There's a message on the wall near where you enter the cave, although it
doesn't seem to make too much sense, so ignore it for now. There are also 4
doors in the room, one on each side of the room. From what I've gathered,
taking any of the four doors will work just fine, as the room you enter will
be somewhat randomly generated.

In each of the following rooms, there will be either one of three things
inside of it: a room with some rocks that you can use Rock Smash on; a room
with a lone pillar that has numbers printed on it if you examine it; and the
room with your prize, Giratina. Going back into the door that you just came
from will lead you back to the entrance, so if you get lost, just go back the
way you came.

Now, in any of the rooms with the rocks in them, you will need to find out
which of the three other doors to take. To do this, carefully examine the
position of the rocks in the room, and look for any inconsistancies with the
symmetry. For example, let's say a room looks like this:
 ______ ______
|    o ^ o    |
|     o o     |  ^, v, <, and > are all doors;
|o     _     o|  | and _ are walls;
<     |o|     >  and o are rocks.
|            o|
|o    o o     |
|____o_v_o____|

Do you see the answer to this one? You would take the western door, because
the southern rock is misplaced from the one on the other side, and is
asymmetrical. The puzzles in each of these rooms are like this, and will
require a keen eye to spot. It's very possible to walk through the doors
blindly and still find your way, though, but I wouldn't try it. Some of these
rock puzzles don't appear to have a symmetrical answer (such as the ones with
the "/ /" and "< >" formations) and I have yet to figure out what the solution
to them is.

I have also since gotten dozens of e-mails saying how they got through the
cave. It seems that the top number on each pillar indicates how many pillars
you have come across, and the bottom number on each pillar indicates how many
rooms you have gotten through. Apparently, you need to reach Giratina before
going through 30 rooms. And, the dozens of people that have e-mailed me
helped to confirm that after reaching the third pillar, taking any door will
lead you to the big, bad Giratina.

Eventually, you will find the room housing Giratina, one big, powerful, angry
Level 70 Ghost/Dragon-type ready to be captured!

|*| Giratina     | GHO / DRG | L70 |   |#|
|*/--------------|-----------|-----|---\#|
`'^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^'^^^^^^^^^^^'^^^^^'^^^^'`

Giratina has quite a few interesting resistances. It is completely immune to
Normal- and Fighting-type attacks, so don't even bother trying to use False
Swipe against it unless you start up with a move like Foresight. It has very
high HP and solid defensive stats, so it can take a hit or two even from a
Super Effective attack (which would be Ghost, Dark, Ice, or Dragon). It
doesn't possess nearly as much attack power as Dialga/Palkia, even though it
is Level 70, but its attacks can still hurt.

One of its more powerful moves, Shadow Drive, is like a Ghost-type Fly attack.
Giratina will disappear on the first turn it uses the attack and will then hit
your Pokemon on the next turn with a powerful 120 Base Power Ghost-type
attack. Plus, on top of that, you won't be able to throw any Poke Balls at it
while it is using Shadow Force. A good remedy to this is to switch to a
Normal-type Pokemon when it initiates the attack (you will notice when it
initiates the attack because it will disappear), which will be completely
immune to Shadow Drive. It also knows Slash, Earth Power, and a move that
seals any of your healing moves (haven't tested it with Potions and the like).
Earth Power is a strong Ground-type attack, but it didn't do enough damage to
one-hit KO my Level 64 Lucario, even though it was Super Effective, so it
isn't as bad as you may think. A Normal/Flying-type Pokemon will have a
distinct advantage against Giratina due to it being immune to three out of its
four attacks, and is a great Pokemon to stall with while you throw Dusk Balls
at it. Again, Dusk Balls are your most effecient tool to catch Giratina with,
and it will take a lot of them to pull it off. Inflicting Sleep or even
Paralysis on it will assist your efforts.

Anyway, if you return here and try and get to Giratina again by solving the
same puzzles before, you might stumble across a room with an item in it. I
found a Thick Club in one of my return visits.

There are a lot of Gastly inside of here, which is pretty cool, because Gastly
becomes a nice addition to nearly any Pokemon Team. It's also a fair spot to
gain EXP early on (120 - 190 EXP per fight, I believe).

The house is pretty much empty with the exception of a few items, a creepy
statue, and a whole ton of Gastly.

The west room on the second floor has an Old Gateau in it.

You can find an Antidote in one of the trash cans in the Dining Room (first

The Dark Plate can be found in the first room on the left in the upstairs
area. Lastly, you can find TM90 (Substitute) inside of the right-most room of

the TV in one of the rooms upstairs to catch the Electric/Ghost-type Pokemon,
Rotom.

It's a pain to catch since it's at such a low level and moves like False Swipe
don't work on it. Fortunately, it's not actually hard to catch, just annoying.

You can also find wild Haunter and Gengar if you have a Pokemon GBA game in
the GBA slot of your Nintendo DS. (Any version will do.) Gengar can only be
found in the room with the strange painting that has the glowing eyes in it.

inside? The Legendary Pokemon Regigigas, that's what! Before proceeding, you
will want to make sure that you have a Regirock, Regice, and Registeel in your
party. You can't get these in the game itself, so you'll need to transfer them
in by using the Pal Park.

stop you. Now, if you have your National Dex, Candice will come up and say
some stuff about Cynthia and your Pokedex and you'll be able to go through.

There's not really much to see in the first room of the temple. Just some ice,
and a big statue. Take the stairs in the upper-right corner down to the second
floor.

The second floor is more of an introductory floor than anything else. You
should already be familiar with sliding on the ice, thanks to the Snowpoint
Gym. Pick up the Calcium in the southeast corner, and then cross the ice and
head north to get to the third floor.

You can save a bit of time on the third floor if you have a Pokemon with Rock
Smash in your party, as there are a few smashable rocks that block shortcuts.
Otherwise, you will need to take the long way, which is a bit more of an
inconvenience. Near the end, there will be a tile of ice that you'll need to
cross by sliding from the south, and then sliding from the east. Elementary,
but I figured I'd say it.

The fourth floor is when things start getting interesting and somewhat
challenging. In the main part of the room is a big, icy floor, with only a
few cleverly placed rocks to stop you from sliding.

It's actually not that hard to get through, though, if you know how to do it.
To solve the puzzle, follow these steps:

   1. Slide south on the second icy tile from the left.
   2. Slide west, bringing you to the southwest corner of the room.
   3. Slide north.
   4. Slide east to get to the eastern part of the room.
   5. Slide north and you'll arrive at the end.

Not too hard. Keep going until you reach the stairs.

On the fifth floor, there's a bunch of rocks (that you can't smash) all over
the place. In the southwestern part of the room, there's also a NeverMeltIce,
and a boulder that can be moved with Strength. In order to get to the
NeverMeltIce, you have to push the boulder north one tile, and then east two
tiles, so you will be able to cross the icy tile without sliding north.

Then, just wander on to the northeast corner, as per usual, and go down the
stairs.

Alright, now you're at the final basement, and this puzzle is much more
challenging than the last. Fortunately, you've got me to walk you through it.

   1. From the entrance of the stairs, walk one tile west, and then head south
      until you slide on the ice. You'll arrive on a tile of floor.
   2. Slide just one tile south, hitting the rock.
   3. Slide east.
   4. Slide north, landing on another tile of floor.
   5. Slide west.
   6. Slide south.
   7. And lastly slide east and walk north to reach Regigigas.

Now, save your game, and make sure you have Regirock, Regice, and Registeel in
your party, otherwise Regigigas will not fight against you.

`'^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^'^^^^^^^^^^^'^^^^^'^^^^'`

Regigigas has the ability Slow Start, which sharply lowers its stats for the
first 5 turns of the fight. Use these turns to weaken it as much as possible.
If you have any Pokemon that can lower its attack with moves like Growl or
Charm, use them on it. Bug/Flying-type Pokemon are also great against it,
because then its Superpower attack will do very little damage.

It also knows Confuse Ray, which is a big annoyance; Zen Headbutt, which is a
pain; and Stomp, which is just an attack you have to deal with.

After 5 turns have elapsed, Regigigas will be a lot faster and a lot more
powerful. Hopefully it will have used Superpower a lot to lower its Attack by
a bit before this happens.

Regigigas is strong, but it's Slow Start Ability really stinks and makes it
almost completely unusuable. It doesn't learn any good moves that might be
able to help out Slow Start, either, like Protect, or even Rest, which almost
all Pokemon are able to learn.

At the very back of Route 206, you will find the Wayward Cave. Inside, all
except a small portion of the screen is cloaked in darkness, limiting your
visibility. You will need Rock Smash to progress into the cave, and unless you
want to wander around in the dark, you'll need a Pokemon that's learned the
move Flash in order to light up the cave. There are Zubats, Geodudes, and
Bronzors in here, as well as several Double Battles against Trainers.

It's a surprisingly large maze, so try and avoid fighting wild Pokemon if you
have the choice, because you'll need to conserve your strength and PP for the
trip out. I don't really have directions just yet, so you'll just have to wing
it until then.

Near the Lass and Youngster, you will find TM32 (Double Team).

You can find a Rare Candy by the Camper and Picnicker.

A LONG way through the maze, you will eventually find Mira, who will ask that
you escort her out of the cave. Before taking her out, though, use the Dowsing
Machine to help locate a Nugget inside of the nearby rock. You have to take
Mira out of the cave without using an Escape Rope or anything like that, so I
hope you remember the way out!

As with Cheryl in the Eterna Forest, all Pokemon battles while Mira is
following you will be Double Battles, and you will be completely healed
between every fight.

After you have taken her to the entrance of the cave, she appears to give you
absolutely nothing except a friendly "Bye-bye".

What does saving her do, then? Well, later on in the game, she may show up as
a partner in the Battle Tower if you're playing in the Multi Battle mode.

Underneath the Cycling Road bridge, on Route 206, you can find a hidden area
of the Wayward Cave. From the east-most patch of grass near the very back of
the Route (to the west of the location of the normal entrance to the Wayward
Cave), take two steps to the east - going under the bridge - and then keep
walking north until you enter a cave. You will need Strength in order to move
the boulder in front of you and proceed into the secret part of the dungeon,
although, fortunately, you will not need Flash.

        '-----------------'

You can find a rather tricky-to-find Pokemon, Gible, down here. The
Dragon/Ground-type Pokemon makes a great addition to your team if you have the
patience to train it up to a decent level. Keep in mind that it's somewhat
tricky to catch, though.

Any form of Repel (preferably Super or Max Repel) is strongly recommended
here, as you will be needing to make numerous jumps on your Bicycle.

In order to make it across the first set of jumps, set your Bicycle to its
Speed mode, and then make all of the jumps except that very last one. When you
get to the last one, press B to change your gear to the Normal mode and then
you can make the jump. Otherwise, you'll just end up at an Elixir and won't be
able to proceed deeper into the dungeon.

Past all of those, you'll eventually find another set of bike jumps. There's a
Grip Claw down one of them. You can also find a Revive in the far north, as
you're jumping across the bike jumps. As you jump across the first one, hold
Up while you're in the air and you'll land where you need to for the Revive.

In the northeast corner, you'll need to be very precise in your ability to
turn in Speed gear. In order to make the next jump, you're going to have to
accelerate starting from the northeast corner of the room, and then turn when
you reach the wall, allowing you to sustain your speed to make the jump.

At the very end of the path, you'll find a flight of stairs leading up into a
very small room that contains TM26 (Earthquake).

The entire ruins are filled with the mysterious Pokemon Unown. Unown are like
the alphabet soup of Pokemon, each one coming in a different letter of the
alphabet. The only move that they know is Hidden Power, which does a random
amount of damage with a random type. It is a Special-based move, though.

Anyway, upon entering, you can read the glyphs on the wall to see a message
written in the Unown langauge. An accurate translation is "Top-Right, Bottom-
Left, Top-Right, Top-Left, Top-Left, Bottom-Left". What does this mean? This
is the path that you must follow to reach the treasure room of the Ruins.

Notice how each room has stairs in the corners of the room? You need to go
down the stairs in the order listed above. Start with going down the Top-Right
stairs. You'll find a kid down there who you can talk to. He'll leave the
ruins, giving you a sticker as he leaves. Continue the path by taking the
Bottom-Left stairs. You'll find a Ruin Maniac to fight in the room. Fight him
if you wish, and then make your way to the Top-Right stairs. From here on in,
you just need to follow the directions. So, from this point, take the
following stairs: Top-Left, Top-Left, Bottom-Left.

If you followed the path correctly, you will reach the basement. You'll find a
Nugget, a Rare Candy, a Mind Plate, and an Odd Incense. There's also another
message on the wall, which reads a weird message.

The room on the far left and the room on the far right are both being blocked
by maids. However, every other room is accessable, and each one contains an
item for you to obtain.

Starting from the left-most room, the first room has a Great Ball inside of
it. Inside of the second room, you can talk to the maid and she'll give you a
Soothe Bell (she might only give this to you if your lead Pokemon is happy).
The third room has a Burn Heal hidden in the trash... yuck...

That covers the left side of the Mansion. The right side only has one room,
with Mr. Backlot, but you can pick up TM87 (Swagger) in the back of the room,
so you should check it out.

Lastly, the door in the middle of the Mansion leading out will take you to a
special field, the Trophy Garden.

Really simple and straightforward: just a patch of grass with some Pokemon in
it. Pichu and Pikachu are interesting, popular Pokemon now available to be
caught, and Roselias are also pretty common here, so if you're in need of a
Grass-type Pokemon, now's a great time to pick up a Roselia.

(_| s6.10.2. After National Dex |____________________________________________)

After you get the National Dex, you can return here and talk with Mr. Backlot
everyday to have a new Pokemon able to be encountered in the Trophy Garden. Up
to two "additional" Pokemon can be in the Trophy Garden, and I'm assuming that
the third time you speak with him, it will replace the first additional
Pokemon, and so on.

Here are a few of the Pokemon that, after speaking with him, he might add to
the Trophy Garden:
     - Meowth
     - Bonsly
     - Jigglypuff
     - Pikachu
     - Eevee
     - Azurill
(there are lots more that I will need to add)

You can stop by the Great Marsh at any time after visiting Pastoria City. The
entrance is in the building in the far north side of town. It costs $500 to
enter the Great Marsh, and once inside you will have 30 Safari Balls which you
can use to catch Pokemon. After 500 steps, or after you run out of Safari
Balls, you will be forced to leave the Great Marsh and will have to pay again.
You get to keep any Pokemon you catch in here, so don't worry about how many
Safari Balls you throw (although, obviously, stay above 5 if you want to
continue playing).

You can also pay $100 in the viewing machines upstairs to get a view of 5
locations in the Great Marsh, as well as a Pokemon that is inhabiting that
particular area. Helpful if you want to get an idea of what's around, although
you can do that for free by just wandering around.

The Great Marsh is divided into 6 different Areas. From the start, the Area to
the left is Area 5 and the Area to the right is Area 6. You can access any of
the Areas in the Great Marsh by riding the train in the middle of the Great
Marsh (it's free). Each Area has different Pokemon in it. The higher-level
Pokemon tend to be closer to Area 1 and Area 2. Also, all of the Areas are
filled with marshes of tall grass, similar to on Route 212 where you could
fall in and get stuck. It's a pain going through it, but oh well.

Carnivine and Croagunk are somewhat tricky to find. From what I've gathered,
they appear in random Areas each day, and only rarely. Once you find one of
them, though, stay in that Area, and you will hopefully run into more.

Another Pokemon worth mentioning is Gyarados, which you can catch by using a
Good Rod in one of the ponds.

Items are scattered all around the Great Marsh. There's nothing that you are
required to pick up in here, though, so it's not crucial to find each and
every one.

One trick to extend your stay in the Great Marsh is, when you're in tall
grass, hold in B and wriggle the D-pad around so you face in random
directions. Each time you turn, there's a chance of encountering a Pokemon,
although your step count will not increase. This allows you to stay in the
Great Marsh limitlessly, really.

(_| s6.11.2. After National Dex |___________________________________________)

After obtaining the National Dex, the Great Marsh will have more Pokemon for
you to catch. To help encounter them, pay $100 to look through the binoculars
on the top of the Great Marsh entrance building and make note of the area you
see a National Dex Pokemon in.

I don't have a list of such Pokemon available at the moment, but there's a few
for you to catch.

`-'------------------------'------------------------------------------------`

The Fuego Ironworks is a totally optional location that's quite well hidden.
It can be accessed any time after beating the Hearthome City Gym Leader. You
can find it by using Surf on Route 205. You can find some cool evolved Pokemon
in the wild, such as Floatzel, Luxio, and Gastrodon.

There's a Max Potion hidden near the building.

You can use your Dowsing Machine to find a Max Potion around the large
building, but aside from the wild Pokemon, that's pretty much it for the
outside.

        '-----------------'

This fiery, metallic building is where you can find a Fire Stone, as well as a
few other items. There's also some Workers for you to fight. Similar to the
Rocket Base in Celadon City from FireRed and LeafGreen, there are those weird
tiles that will move you forward in the direction they show until you hit
something, or hit another tile (in which you will move according to that
tile).

It's not too complicated to figure out where to go. Just carefully look at the
direction each tile takes you and let that be your guide.

You can find the first Fire Stone in the northeast corner of the building. The
Rock Incense can be found near the southeast side of the building, where there
are three left-tiles in a row. Take the top-most one and you'll be near Worker
Shigemichi. Battle him if you wish, and then head back to around where you
just were, except you'll be able to grab the Rock Incense. Mr. Fuego, who is
in the area by the furnace just to the west of the Worker, will give you
another Fire Stone after talking to him. TM35 (Flamethrower) is also right by
the furnace, so be sure to pick that up!

`-'--------------------'----------------------------------------------------`

You can go to Iron Island by taking a ship in Canalave City.

It is strongly recommended that you carry no more than 5 Pokemon with you
during your trip here. Don't worry, you won't need the use of any HMs, so you
can leave any utility Pokemon in the PC for this trip.

When you arrive, you'll see very little: simply a lone house on the island, as
well as the entrance to the cave. The house is empty, so make your way to the
cave.

        | Magnet          |
        | Shiny Stone     |
        '-----------------'

When you enter the cave, you'll be presented with two sets of stairs: one on
the left-side of the room, one on the right. You'll want to go down the set of
stairs on the right, although taking the flight on the left will lead you to a
Trainer battle and the Iron ball.

Taking the set of stairs on the right will lead you down to a larger room.
Take the northern route around until you reach the southern area (by the
Picnicker), battle her, and then make your way to the elevator platform on the
south side of the room. This will take you down to another choice of two
stairs.

Taking the stairs to the right down here will lead you to a room with two
Workers in it, as well as an Elixir and TM23 (Iron Tail). Ride over to the
east to pick up the Elixir, and make your way south to snag the TM. There's
also an Iron hidden in the area to the east of the TM (use the Dowsing Machine
to locate it).

Anyway, taking the left stairs at the elevator platform is what you'll really
want to do. Down there, you'll find a man with a blue hat (who resembles the
hero in the Lucario movie... coincidence?). He'll introduce himself as Riley,
and will ask that you escort him down to the bottom floor. You know what that
means. Yep, he joins your party. He has a Level 34 Lucario, which is kinda
neat.

A Magnet can be found by the Black Belt and Battle Girl on the eastern side of
the room. South of them (in the southeastern corner of the room), there's a
Steel Plate hidden in a lowered part of the floor (use the Dowsing Machine to
spot it). You can find a Max Potion near the two Workers on the west side of
the room by taking the path north from the Workers. You can take the southern
path from the two Workers to pick up an HP Up as well.

Near the end, there will be two Galactic Grunts. Riley will seem to have a
grudge against them. Then, you'll battle the two Grunts in a Double Battle.

After beating them, they'll argue amongst each other, and then run off. Then,
Riley will thank you for helping him, and will offer to give you an Egg. Say
"Yes", and if you have a free spot in your party, you'll be given a Riolu Egg
(Riolu is the pre-evolution of Lucario).

Take the elevator down and go inside of the other room. You'll find another
elevator in there, as well as a Shiny Stone. Continue out the cave exit and
you'll appear outside.

( s7. FINDING AND EVOLVING SPECIFIC POKEMON | :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: )
 `~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

So often I am asked where to find ______ Pokemon, or how to evolve ______. So,
why not just make a section on how and where to get specific Pokemon, right?

If you JUST need to SEE the Pokemon for your Sinnoh Dex, please check out
section 8.6., which has a list of where to see all of the Pokemon for the
Sinnoh Dex!

This section here is for instructions on how to obtain more obscure Pokemon,
and either lead you to the appropriate section or tell you all you need to
know about getting it.

 _____________________________________________________________________________
/ | s7.1. "Freebie" Pokemon |                                                /
`-'-------------------------'-----------------------------------------------`

These Pokemon are all given to you in the game by someone, or by completing a
certain event.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.1.1. Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup |__________________________________)

You get ONE of these three Pokemon in the very beginning of the game. If you
want to get any of the other two, you will need to trade other players for
them, as you can only get the one you chose.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.1.2. Happiny |________________________________________________________)

A Hiker near the southeast exit of Hearthome City will give you a Happiny egg
if you talk to him and have room in your party. It will eventually hatch into
a Happiny, which you can then evolve into Chansey by raising its happiness
and then using an Oval Stone on it.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.1.3. Riolu and Lucario |______________________________________________)

Riley will give you a Riolu egg if you help him out in Iron Island. Check out
section 6.13. for more information on Iron Island.

The egg will hatch into a Level 1 Riolu, and in order for it to evolve into
Lucario, you will first need to raise its happiness by battling with it, using
items on it, and leveling it up. Giving it the Soothe Bell also doubles the
rate that it becomes happy, so have it hold that the whole time. Then, have it
level up one more time during the day time and it will evolve into Lucario if
it is happy enough with you.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.1.4. Manaphy |________________________________________________________)

In order to get yourself a Manaphy, you have to play through another Pokemon
game, Pokemon Ranger, and then input a special password into it.

Exact details can be found on the official website:
http://www.pokemon.com/manaphy/
http://www.pokemon.com/#news_/XML/news_191.xml

The password that you will need to input in Pokemon Ranger is:
   P8M2 9D6F 43H7

You'll then need to complete the special Manaphy mission, and you will receive
a Manaphy Egg in Pokemon Ranger afterward.

After you've got the Egg in Ranger, you can transfer it to your Pokemon
Diamond or Pearl by using two Nintendo DS systems. If you don't have two, try
and hunt down a friend with one that you can borrow.

Put Pokemon Ranger in one of the Nintendo DS systems and Pokemon Diamond or
Pearl in the other, and then turn them both on.

On Pokemon Ranger, go to the Ranger Net and then select Check the Egg.
Touch the status screen and then select Send Message and the game will try and
connect to Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.

Now, in Pokemon Diamond or Pearl, wait at the menu screen (Continue, New Game,
etc.) until a message pops up. Press A, and then select Link with Pokemon
Ranger on the menu screen (it's the bottom option).

Back on Pokemon Ranger, you'll have to confirm the transfer. Press the
Transfer button, and the transfer will begin.

Finally, on Diamond and Pearl, enter any Pokemon Center and talk to the fellow
wearing green and he will give you the blue Manaphy Egg if you have room in
your party.

The Manaphy Egg will hatch just like any other egg... it just looks different.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.1.5. Eevee |__________________________________________________________)
   \ REQUIRES NATIONAL DEX )
    `---------------------`

After you obtain the National Dex, you can return to Hearthome City and talk
to Bebe inside of the house right next to the Pokemon Center and, if you have
room in your party, she will give you a free Eevee at Level 5. No strings
attached!

 _____________________________________________________________________________
/ | s7.2. Rare and Legendary Pokemon |                                       /
`-'----------------------------------'--------------------------------------`

This section lists all of the rare and Legendary Pokemon that you can find in
the game. These Pokemon are usually considered to be rare or Legendary because
you don't encounter them under ordinary circumstances and have to do something
special in order to find them.

A lot of these Pokemon are covered more in-depth in the Walkthrough, so I'll
probably just be directing you to the appropriate section because I don't
want to have to repeat myself.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.1. Drifloon |_______________________________________________________)

Drifloon will show up in the Valley Windworks after you've beaten Mars there,
but only on Fridays. It appears in a sprite-form, just like any other NPC or
person does, and not in the tall grass.

Again, Drifloon only appears on Friday. If you change the clock on your DS to
be Friday, it won't work either, because Diamond and Pearl makes you wait an
extra 24 hours for any time-based events if you mess with the clock.

If you really need one badly, your best bet is to set the DS clock to Thursday
afternoon and then waiting a day.

If you miss out in fighting the Trainer in the Hearthome Gym that has a
Drifloon in her team, you will have to see this wild Drifloon in order to
complete your Sinnoh Dex, or will have to trade with someone who has one.

One Drifloon will appear every Friday, so you can catch more than one.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.2. Spiritomb |______________________________________________________)

In order to get Spiritomb, you need to use an Odd Keystone in the broken tower
on Route 209, and then enter other players' secret bases 32 times. After doing
so, return to the broken tower and it will turn into the Hallowed Tower, where
you can catch yourself a Spiritomb.

I actually need to confirm the exact details, because I've only gotten this
info from heresay.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.3. Dialga and Palkia |______________________________________________)

You will have a chance to fight Dialga (if you're playing Pokemon Diamond) or
Palkia (if you're playing Pokemon Pearl) after obtaining the 7th Badge. You
are forced to fight it in the game, so there's no chance of you not being able
to find it.

Please refer to section 5.8.5. (Mt. Coronet (Peak)) for its stats, how to find
it, and the best strategies to use to catch it.

You cannot obtain Palkia in Pokemon Diamond or Dialga in Pokemon Pearl, but
you can see a picture of them to be registered for your Sinnoh Dex by talking
to the old lady in Celestic Town after beating the Elite 4.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.4. Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf |_______________________________________)

You can find these three Pokemon in the appropriate lakes. Uxie is in Lake
Acuity, Mesprit is in Lake Verity, and Azelf is in Lake Valor. They are all
found inside of the cave in the middle of the lake, and only after you've
fought against Dialga or Palkia on the Spear Pillar.

Please check out sections 5.8.6., 5.8.7., and 5.8.8. on information regarding
catching these three.

Mesprit is also a little different than the other two, because after you talk
to it at the lake, it will run away. What I do to catch it is take my Bicycle
and ride back and forth between either Solaceon Town and Route 209 or Solaceon
Town and Route 210 while watching its position on the Marking Map.

It will almost always move to an adjacent Route, so if it is currently on
Route 215 while you're in Solaceon Town, head north to Route 210 and hope that
it decided to follow suit and end up in the same Route; otherwise, just keep
trying.

You CAN find Mesprit while using Surf.

When you encounter it, if you have a Pokemon that can use Mean Look or Block,
USE IT, because Mesprit will run away on the first turn of the fight. Just
make sure that the Pokemon using the attack has at least 100 Speed, otherwise
Mesprit may outspeed it.

If you don't have a Pokemon with such an attack, just whittle away its HP
every time that you encounter it and try to afflict it with Sleep or Paralyze.
It will retain all of the damage and status conditions that you inflict even
after it runs, so it will help improve your odds in the future.

Everytime you get on the same Route as it, save your game. Although when you
reload your save it will appear in a different Route, it's a lot better than
accidentally knocking it out.

Mesprit makes a good Pokemon to use your Master Ball on because it's a pain
trying to track it down and stuff. Cresselia is also another Pokemon that is
good to use it on, so decide which you'd rather use it on.

The best type of Poke Ball to use against Mesprit are Quick Balls, unless you
are using Mean Look or Block.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.5. Rotom |__________________________________________________________)
   \ REQUIRES NATIONAL DEX )
    `---------------------`
Rotom will only appear at night, and only in the Old Chateau in Eterna Forest.
To find Rotom, go to the back part of Eterna Forest between the hours of 22:00
and 4:00 (night) and talk to Gardenia outside of the entrance to the Old
Chateau, then go inside and investigate the TV in one of the upstairs rooms.

For full information on Rotom and how to catch it, please check out section
6.6.2. (Old Chateau) of the Walkthrough.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.6. Heatran |________________________________________________________)
   \ REQUIRES NATIONAL DEX )
    `---------------------`
Heatran can be found in the very back of Stark Mountain on the Northeast
Island.

Please refer to section 6.3.7. (Stark Mountain) of the Walkthrough for the
exact specifics on finding and catching Heatran.

One common mistake a lot of people make that prevents Heatran from showing up
is forgetting to talk to Buck after you've first visited the very back of
Stark Mountain with him in your party. He shows up in one of the houses in the
Survival Area. You must talk to him after your first visit to the back of the
cave, otherwise Heatran will not appear!
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.7. Regigigas |______________________________________________________)
   \ REQUIRES NATIONAL DEX )
    `---------------------`
Regigigas can be found in the Snowpoint Temple after obtaining the National
Dex. But, it won't fight you unless you have Regirock, Regice, and Registeel
in your party.

These three Pokemon can't be found anywhere in Pokemon Diamond or Pearl, so
you will have to use the Pal Park to bring them in from your Ruby, Sapphire,
or Emerald version, or trade some of your friends that have them.

For full information on Regigigas and getting through the Snowpoint Temple,
please refer to section 6.7. (Regigigas and Snowpoint Temple).
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.8. Giratina |_______________________________________________________)
   \ REQUIRES NATIONAL DEX )
    `---------------------`
Giratina can be found deep inside of the Turnback Cave, which can be found in
the Spring Path which opens up in Route 214 after obtaining the National Dex.

Please check out section 6.5. (Giratina and the Turnback Cave) for full
details on the Turnback Cave and how to catch Giratina!
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.9. Cresselia |______________________________________________________)
   \ REQUIRES NATIONAL DEX )
    `---------------------`
You find Cresselia by going to the Fullmoon Isle after obtaining the National
Dex. You can get there by talking to the people inside of the house near the
dock to Iron Island, and then by talking to the sailor.

After encountering it, Cresselia will run around a lot like Mesprit did. In
fact, exactly like Mesprit did, so follow the same tactics for catching
Cresselia as you did Mesprit. If you still have your Master Ball, Cresselia
is a good choice of Pokemon to use it on, because it gets really annoying
having to track it down.

Fortunately, now that you have the National Dex, Wobbuffets are available. If
you have a Wobbuffet as your active Pokemon, Cresselia will be unable to
escape in battle, giving you multiple chances to fight it.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.10. Phione |________________________________________________________)
   \ REQUIRES NATIONAL DEX )
    `---------------------`
To get yourself a Phione, all you need to do is put a Manaphy and a Ditto in
the Day Care, and they will leave an egg. Inside of the egg is the cute but
utterly useless Phione.

Also, just to clear things up, Phione does NOT evolve into Manaphy. It is a
little unusual, but that's how it is.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.2.11. Darkrai, Shaymin, and Arceus |__________________________________)

These three Pokemon are not available at this point without the use of some
form of cheating or hacking device. There are no ways to get them in a normal
game right now!

There was a glitch in the early copies of the Japanese Diamond or Pearl that
allowed you to encounter them - at the risk of forcing you to erase your save.
But, that glitch ahs been fixed in the English version.

I am not going to cover any of these Pokemon. They will likely be released
through Nintendo Events in the upcoming months. Hopefully Wi-Fi will make
things easier for those of us that can't travel half-way across the globe
just to go to one of their events...

 _____________________________________________________________________________
/ | s7.3. Honey Tree Pokemon |                                               /
`-'--------------------------'----------------------------------------------`

These are the Pokemon that show up on the Honey Trees. I don't have the exact
percentages right now, but at least it's a list...
  __________
.` POKEMON  `.                                    _________________

   | Combee     | BUG / FLY | 5 - 14             |     UNCOMMON    |
   | Burmy      |    BUG    | 5 - 14             |     UNCOMMON    |
   | Cherubi    |    GRS    | 5 - 14             |     UNCOMMON    |
   | Aipom      |    NRM    | 5 - 14             |       RARE      |
   | Heracross  | BUG / FTG | 5 - 14             |       RARE      |
   | Munchlax   |    NRM    | 5 - 14             |    VERY RARE    |
( Diamond Only   )__________|____________________|_____|_____|____<
   | Silcoon    |    BUG    | 5 - 14             |      COMMON     |

   | Cascoon    | BUG / PSN | 5 - 14             |      COMMON     |
   |____________|___________|____________________|_____|_____|_____|

Again, I'm not 100% sure on the levels or exact frequencies. It also might be
possible for the different Honey Trees to have different odds of encountering
each Pokemon.

 _____________________________________________________________________________
/ | s7.4. Pokeradar Pokemon |                                                /
`-'-------------------------'-----------------------------------------------`

This section here shows you all of the extra Pokemon that show up when you use
the Pokeradar in the specific location, if there are any extra Pokemon to be
found there.

I'm not 100% positive on if the percentages are correct. It seems to be
according to my data, although I'm still not quite sure. I also am a bit
uncertain about if the type of the shaking grass (normal shake or shake with
yellow marks) has any impact on the rarity.

Ah well, here's a list regardless. The Pokemon's levels will be the same as
the other Pokemon in the area they're in.

After obtaining the National Dex, new Pokemon might start showing up in
various locations throughout Sinnoh if you have one of the Pokemon GBA games
inserted into the GBA slot of your Nintendo DS.

As far as I can tell, all Pokemon listed here have an 8% chance of being
encountered, unless it says 4%. These Pokemon will be at the same levels as
the other Pokemon in the area - the exception being in the Northeast Island,
where they'll be at the lower levels (22, 25, 27, 29, etc.).

After obtaining the National Dex, you may be able to encounter even more
Pokemon to catch in the Sinnoh region.

Every day, the swarming Pokemon will change. You can find out what Pokemon is
swarming - along with its location - by talking to Dawn's little sister in her
house in Sandgem Town. Again, you can do this once per day.

All Pokemon listed here have a 40% chance of being encountered, but only while
they are swarming in the area.

/ | s7.7. Evolving certain Pokemon |                                         /
`-'--------------------------------'----------------------------------------`

I get asked so often "How do I evolve ________?" so I figured rather than
put a ton of questions up in the Frequently Asked Questions section, it would
be better to just dedicate a whole section to it.

This list here does not cover your standard evolution, like leveling up or
using evolutionary stones on it. All of that information can be found in the
seperate Pokedex FAQ or on my site, http://pokemon.marriland.com

Instead, this will show you how to evolve specific Pokemon that have certain
requirements to their evolution, and will tell you what you need to know about
how to evolve them.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.1. Evolving Pokemon by Happiness |__________________________________)

Some Pokemon only evolve when they're happy with you and you level them up,
but what exactly can you do to evolve such Pokemon? How do you get them happy
enough with you to evolve?

Here are some of the ways that you can do to increase your Pokemon's
happiness:

   - Walking with it in your party.
   - Gaining levels.
   - Using HP Up, Protein, Iron, Carbos, Calcium, or Zinc on it.
   - Using a Pomeg, Kelpsy, Qualot, Hondew, Grepa, or Tamato Berry on it.
   - Having the Grooming Lady in Veilstone give the Pokemon a massage.

Having your Pokemon hold the Soothe Bell will increase the rate that it gains
happiness, so if you're trying to raise a Pokemon's happiness, make sure it's
holding that item! TO FIND THE SOOTHE BELL, just talk to one of the maids in
the Pokemon Mansion on Route 212.

If your Pokemon hatches from an egg, like Happiny or Riolu, its happiness will
be higher from the start and will require less happiness to evolve.

There are a few different methods to level up your Pokemon:

   1. CAN'T BUY ME LOVE ... OR MAYBE YOU CAN!
         If you've got $490,000 available to blow on evolving your Pokemon,
         you can evolve it in just a few minutes. Have the Pokemon hold the
         Soothe Bell (this is a MUST) and then use 49 of any of the stat
         increasing items, like HP Up or Protein, and then have it gain one
         level. It should evolve.

         If the Pokemon hatched from an egg, you only need to use 34 of the
         items instead of 49.

   2. THE LONG STROLL
         Got some patience? Well, you can evolve most Pokemon that evolve
         through happiness by walking 18,816 steps with it (37,632 if it
         doesn't have the Soothe Bell equipped). Afterwards, just evolve the
         Pokemon either in battle or with a Rare Candy.

         Solaceon Town is a great place to do this at. Ride your Bicycle along
         the strip of path that stretches from Route 209 all the way to the
         back of Route 210. It's about 500 steps each way, so it goes pretty
         fast. You should be able to do this in less than 20 minutes if you're
         using the speed gear on the Bicycle.

         The Pedometer Poketch app is a great app to have shown while you're
         riding, so that way you will know exactly how many steps you've
         taken.

         But want to actually get something else done while you're doing this?
         Put two of your Pokemon that you'd like to gain a few levels into the
         town's Pokemon Day Care, and when you are done, they'll have probably
         gained a few levels.

         Or, you could put two compatible Pokemon in the Day Care so they will
         produce eggs, and then hatch them and deposit them in your PC as you
         ride. I mean, hey, it's a great time to be making some Piplup eggs,
         right?

         Speaking of eggs, if the Pokemon you are trying to bond with was
         hatched from an egg, it will require only 12,416 steps as long as it
         has the Soothe Bell on it (24,832 without).

   3. THE NORMAL WAY
         Do a combination of all of the ways to raise its happiness! Walk
         around, battle Trainers, have the Grooming Lady in Veilstone City
         massage your Pokemon, give it vitamins... do it all. Just make sure
         it has the Soothe Bell equipped.

 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.2. Combee to Vespiquen |____________________________________________)

Only female Combees will evolve into Vespiquen. Male ones are pretty much
useless.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.3. Aipom to Ambipom |_______________________________________________)

Aipom will evolve into Ambipom when it levels up and knows the move Double
Hit. Aipom learns Double Hit at level 32, so make sure it learns it and then
it will evolve into Ambipom.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.4. Bonsly to Sudowoodo, Mime Jr. to Mr. Mime |______________________)

Bonsly will evolve into Sudowoodo, and Mime Jr. will evolve into Mr. Mime when
they level up and know the move Mimic. Bonsly learns Mimic at level 17, and
Mime Jr. learns it at level 18. Be sure to have these Pokemon learn Mimic if
you want them to evolve.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.5. Happiny to Chansey |_____________________________________________)

Happiny can evolve into Chansey if it is happy with you and if you use an Oval
Stone on it. It has to be happy with you. Fortunately, if it is, it means that
it will probably evolve into Blissey shortly after it evolves into Chansey.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.6. Riolu to Lucario, Chingling to Chimecho |________________________)

Both of these Pokemon evolve through happiness and leveling up, but they will
only evolve at certain times of the day.

Riolu will only evolve into Lucario if it is happy with you and it levels up
in the day time. Chingling evolves into Chimecho in a similar way, except
only at night.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.7. Feebas to Milotic |______________________________________________)

In order to evolve your Feebas into a Milotic, you have to raise its Beauty
stat for the Pokemon Contests up to nearly full. You will want to use the best
Poffins you can that raise Beauty, because it NEEDS to be almost at max.

Once you've gotten it up that far, just level it up and it should evolve into
Milotic. If it doesn't, you need to raise its Beauty even more. If you can't,
you're out of luck and will need to use better Poffins.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.8. Sneasel to Weavile |_____________________________________________)

Make sure you have your Sneasel holding the Razor Claw item, which can be
found near the back of Victory Road. Then, just level it up, and if it's
holding the item, it will evolve into a Weavile.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.9. Magneton to Magnezone, Nosepass to Probopass |___________________)

Both of these Pokemon evolve if they gain a level inside of Mt. Coronet.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.10. Lickitung to Lickilicky |_______________________________________)

Lickitung will evolve into Lickilicky when it gains a level and knows the move
Rollout. Lickitung learns Rollout at level 33, so make sure that you have it
learn Rollout, and it will then evolve.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.11. Rhydon to Rhyperior |___________________________________________)

Have your Rhydon hold the Protector, which can be found on Route 228, and then
trade it to another game. It will evolve during the trade. Hopefully you've
got a friend that will trade it back to you.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.12. Tangela to Tangrowth, Yanma to Yanmega, Piloswine to Mamoswine |)

All three of these Pokemon will evolve into their counterparts if they level
up and know the move Ancientpower.

Tangela and Yanma both learn Ancientpower at level 33, but you'll have to use
a Heart Scale on Piloswine in order to get it to learn Ancientpower.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.13. Electabuzz to Electivire, Magmar to Magmortar |_________________)

Have your Electabuzz hold the Electrizer, or your Magmar hold the Magmarizer
and then trade it to another game. It will evolve during the trade.

You can only find Electrizers on wild Elekids, and only very rarely (5%). You
can also only find Elekid in the Valley Windworks or on Route 205 (South) if
you have FireRed in your GBA slot.

Magmarizers are also very rare, and can only be found on wild Magbys (5%
chance of them holding one). You can only find Magbys on Route 227 or at Stark
Mountain if you have LeafGreen in your GBA slot.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.14. Eevee to Leafeon, Eevee to Glaceon |____________________________)

Eevee gets two new evolutions in Diamond and Pearl, and you get them in a
different way than you do its older evolutions.

To evolve your Eevee into Leafeon, take it to the mysterious rock in Eterna
Forest. It can be found in the southwestern side of the forest. Then, just
have it level up there and it will evolve into Leafeon after it levels up.

Similarly to how you evolve you Eevee into Leafeon, you can evolve it into
Glaceon by taking it to another mysterious rock on Route 217. It's on the
northeastern part of the Route. Just have it level up and it will evolve
into Glaceon there.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.15. Gligar to Gliscor |_____________________________________________)

Have your Gligar hold the Razor Fang item, which can be found outside of the
Battle Tower, and then trade it to another game. It will evolve during the
trade. Then, just hope your friend is trustworthy so you can get it back!
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.16. Porygon2 to PorygonZ |__________________________________________)

Have your Porygon2 hold the Dubious Disc, which is located on Route 225, and
then trade it to another game. It will evolve into PorygonZ during the trade.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.17. Kirlia to Gallade, Snorunt to Froslass |________________________)

Dawn Stones will evolve both of these Pokemon, but only if they're of a
specific gender.

Use a Dawn Stone on a MALE Kirlia to evolve it into Gallade. You can only use
it on male Kirlias. And also, if you don't use it on it, it will still evolve
into a male Gardevoir, it's just that there can be only male Gallades.

Use a Dawn Stone on a FEMALE Snorunt and it will evolve into Froslass. You can
only evolve female Snorunts with it. And also, like the Kirlia thing, you can
still evolve your female Snorunts into female Glalies - it's just that you
can't evolve male Snorunts into Froslass.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s7.7.18. Dusclops to Dusknoir |__________________________________________)

Have your Dusclops hold the Reaper Cloth, which is found on Route 229, and
then trade it to another game. It will then evolve into Dusknoir during the
trade.

(_| s8.6. Locations of Pokemon for the Sinnoh Dex |__________________________)

In order to unlock the National Dex and a nice amount of additional, post-game
features, you need to first see all of the Pokemon for the Sinnoh Pokedex.
Fortunately, you can do this simply by battling most of the Trainers in the
game as well as doing a little searching, but to make things easy for you,
here is a list of where you can find all of the Pokemon required for the
completing the Sinnoh Dex.

Keep in mind that this list shows mostly Pokemon from Trainer fights as
opposed to their location in the wild and how to obtain them, because you will
be guarenteed to see any given Pokemon in the listed Trainer battle instead of
wading through a field of grass hoping to encounter one.

The Dex # listed is for the Sinnoh Dex, not the National Dex.

`-----'------------'---------------------------------------------------------'

Please note that although Manaphy is in the Sinnoh Dex, it is not required for
completion of the Sinnoh Dex, and you will still need to see the other 150
Pokemon regardless of if you have it or not.

(_| s8.7. English / Japanese Pokemon Names |_________________________________)

(This section is only here for reference's sake. It will probably be removed
in the next revision to this Walkthrough.)

To avoid any confusion during gameplay if you happen to know a little bit of
Japanese, I have a list of both the English and Japanese names for each of the
new Pokemon. This should help you also in case you need to know, roughly, what
Pokemon someone is talking about if you don't know the English name, or don't
know the Japanese name.

I am using as literal of a Japanese translation as possible. To make things
clearer, for any elongated vowels, I will be using the following method to
make them clear:
       ah = Long A (looks like "a-" in Japanese)
       ii = Long I (looks like "i-" in Japanese)
       uu = Long U (looks like "u-" in Japanese)
       eh = Long E (looks like "e-" in Japanese)
       oh = Long O (looks like "o-" in Japanese)
I will also use an apostrophe (') to seperate two consecutive o's, because
English readers will probably thing that it makes an "ooooooh" sound instead
of the "oh-oh" sound it does in Japanese. (Only real example is Yukino'oh,
which is read as "Yu - ki - no - o-" in Japanese.)

Also, two more things to note:
    1. In Japanese, the letter U is often silent. For instance, "Tatetopusu"
       in Japanese would sound a lot like "Tatetops".
    2. The English letter R and L are interchangable in Japanese. They use the
       same Japanese symbols for both R and L, because they pronounce that
       syllable as sort of a mixture of the two. In this list, I list them all
       as R to avoid confusion.

The Dex # listed is for the National Dex, obviously. I also decided to split
this table into two sides rather than have one massively large scrolling one.
It has twenty-five Pokemon on each side, and then it will have a break. You'll
get the picture once you look at it, don't worry.

(_| s9.1. Trading and Battling over Wi-Fi |__________________________________)

This little section here covers how to trade and battle over Wi-Fi with other
people, and was written by Tedm/Virus. Thank you for allowing me to use it!

      Wi-Fi
      After entering the Basement of the Pokemon Center talk to any of the two
      ladies of the left counter. She will welcome you and ask if you would
      like to connect, say, "Yes". Then you will be prompt to save. After
      saving you will enter. Once in it will ask you if you want to connect
      (DUH!) say "Yes"

      IN WI-FI
      Now you will be presented with multiple choices. If any of your friends
      from the Pal Pad are on their names will be near the top in blue. If on
      the side of their name it says "Standing by..." you can select their
      name to Voice Chat or view their Records.

      HOSTING
      You can voice chat or Select "Invite" to choose any of the following:
            SINGLE BATTLE
            DOUBLE BATTLE
            TRADE
            or Cancel.

      In single or double battle you can choose the levels, FREE, Lv. 50, or
      Lv. 100. In trade there are no options.

      FINALIZING
      After selecting one of the options your status (at the bottom) will no
      longer be Standing by... Now your friend just needs to select your name
      and select Apply to join in on your choice. If their Status is not
      Standing By... then you can join in on the selected activity by your
      friend.

      EXTRA
      Another status is "In Battle..." or "Trading..." this meens your friend
      is busy. And during any of your activities you can chat. Chating can be
      disabled.

Coming soon!

(_| s9.4. Pokemon Super Contests |___________________________________________)

Now, the Pokemon Super Contests are an improved version of the the Contest
Halls from Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. I never really played around
with the Super Contests, but they're apparently pretty fun.

ShawnyChuu was nice enough to write up a ton of information on Super Contests
and everything involved in them and let me use it in this Walkthrough:
  ___________________________________________________________________________
  \|__| PoKeMoN Super Contests "Mini-Guide", by ShawnyChuu |_______________|/
    
      A feature first introduced in PoKeMoN Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald,
      the Contests are back in Diamond and Pearl! Only now they've been
      upgraded and are referred to as Super Contests. There is only one
      Super Contest Hall in all of Sinnoh. You can find the Super
      Contest Hall in Yosuga City, on the same street as the PoKeMoN
      Center. When you first enter the Contest Hall, your mother will be
      there. After some dialogue she gives you an item, I'm pretty sure
      it's the acessory case. Your mother will leave and now you are
      free to enter a contest! Like in R/S/E, there are 5 different
      contest types. Cool, Beauty, Cute, Smart, and Tough Contests. If
      you are playing a Japanese version of the game, it's that exact
      order. This will cut down on confusion if you can't read Japanese
      such as myself. After you are satisfied with your PoKeMoN stats
      having fed them the desired amount of Poffin, talk to Nurse Joy at
      the center counter and choose your contest type and rank. After
      you have selected your contest you will then change into some
      pretty spiffy formal attire before you proceed to the main stage. 

      The contest begins with the host introducing the current contest's
      participaters. Of course you will be entry number 4. After some
      introductions and cheering, flash photography, and whistling from
      the crowd, the screen will change to the dress-up portion of the
      contest. You have exactly 1 minute to use your DS Stylus to dress
      up your PoKeMoN with the accessories you have collected thus far.
      You can also choose a backdrop to put your PoKeMoN in front of as
      well. When you have finished dressing up you PoKeMoN in its
      preferred attire, or the clock runs out, the Super Contest
      officially begins!
    ______________________________________________________________________
   |_____________________ Round 1: Visual Judgement ______________________|
    
      Like in R/S/E, your PoKeMoN is presented to the crowd. The curtain
      will raise and you will see your PoKeMoN, along with the other
      contestents PoKeMoN on stage, one at a time, all decked out in the
      accessories chosen for them. Based on how well you dressed them,
      along with how much stat raising feeding them Poffin yielded, the
      crowd will react by a show of hearts. The better condition and the
      better dressed up your PoKeMoN is will get you more hearts. When
      visual judgement is complete it's on to the next round!!
    ______________________________________________________________________
   |_____________________ Round 2: Dance Competition! ____________________|
    
      In this round your PoKeMoN will partake in a dance competition.
      For the first three turns you will have to copy the dance moves of
      your competitors in a DDR kinda fashion. This can be done by using
      the touch screen or the D-Pad. When it finally comes your turn, it
      is now your job to make a 3 step dance combo (in Hyper and Master
      Rank it will be 4-step), to try and mess up your competition.
      Whoever danced the best will be kept in the spotlight at the end
      of the round. Alright! Time for the final round!!
    ______________________________________________________________________
   |_______________________ Round 3: Appeal Round! _______________________|
    
      This should look pretty familliar to you guys if you did the
      contests in R/S/E. But even this has gotten an upgrade. Instead of
      performing for just a single judge, you now have 3 judges to
      choose from! Depending on how well you did in the previous 2
      rounds, you will either be first in line to perform, or you will
      be last. The premise is still the same. Choose an attack to show
      off for the judges. If your attack type matches the contest type,
      you will earn a gold star to excite the crowd. Sometimes your
      opponents' attacks will conflict with the contest type and the
      stars will go down. As I mentioned before you can choose from one
      of 3 judges to do your appeal for in each round. If you were the
      only one to perform an appeal for your chosen judge in that round,
      you will earn an extra 3 heart points to the heart points you
      earned for the attack you performed. If you are the first to
      appeal for this judge, you will see a smiley face icon appear in a
      thought bubble over the judge's head. If someone else performed
      before you for this judge, it will be a sad face. So here's how it
      works:
    
            - If you are the only one to make an appeal before your
              selected judge you earn 3 additional heart points.
            - If one other person appealed for the same judge before
              or after you, you get an additional 2 hearts.
            - If two others performed for the same judge, you get an
              additional 1 heart.
            - If everyone appealed for the same judge, then you get
              0 additional hearts.
    
      If you manage to score the 5th star on any of the 3 judges, this
      means you got the crowd going with full excitement, just like in
      R/S/E. In this case you will be awarded a 5 heart bonus for this.
      After 5 turns the round is over. Now onto the results!
    ______________________________________________________________________
   |______________________ Super Contest Results! ________________________|
    
      After the 3 rounds are complete you are brought back on stage and
      the tallying begins. Depending on how well you did on each round
      will make your bar increase. Whosever bar has reached the farthest
      will be in 1st place. Congratulations! You've won a Ribbon! After
      the contest is over you will be escorted back to the main hall and
      change back into your normal clothing. Nurse Joy will then give
      you a new accessory if it is your first victory in that contest
      type and rank. Now go for the higher rank ribbons!! Good luck!
    ______________________________________________________________________
   |____________ ShawnyChuu's thoughts on the Super Contests _____________|
    
      I honestly have a great deal of fun with the Super Contests.
      Unfortunately there are certain features I think could use a
      change or a complete omission. Firstly, the dressup portion. You
      have only one minute to dress your PoKeMoN up. Sounds fair right?
      Well in the Normal Rank you can only put 4 accessories on your
      PoKeMoN. But as you go to the higher ranks you are required to
      dress them up in even more accessories. By the time you reach the
      Master Rank, you barely have enough time to dress them up fully.
      And when you're at such a high rank, leaving off even one or two
      accessories means the major loss of attention from the crowd. This
      means you really have to speed things up. I will also note that
      during my experience playing, I feel rather rushed when doing this
      portion of the contest. So the results will come out sloppy as a
      result.

      The dance competition round is really not needed. It just seems
      pointless to me somehow. And if you're not good with following the
      leader, it could really hurt your chances of winning the contest.
      The 1st two ranks the dancing is easy. But with the Hyper and
      Master Ranks it really gets a bit tedious, and I've often found
      myself missing a step or two.

      My biggest gripe though is the Master Rank. They made it next to
      impossible to win. I myself have yet to earn a Master Rank ribbon.
      First off one of the contestents is a prominent figure in the
      PoKeMoN World. It could either be the Hearthome Gym leader, Fantina,
      Jasmine, the Gym Leader from Olivine City (G/S/C), or in some
      cases, your own mother! This alone sets the stage for a very
      difficult contest! So max out your PoKeMoN's stats, and dress them
      up fully! Maybe you can do what I have yet to do..get a Master
      Rank Ribbon! ^_^;;

      Overall the Super Contests are a fun way to kill time while you're
      training for your next Gym match, or for you more serious
      trainers, a great way to really bring out your PokeMoN's full
      potential and a fun new way to raise your little monsters.
      Whatever the case may be, the PoKeMoN Super Contests are worth at
      least one shot! Who knows? Maybe it will inspire you to take a
      different path on your journey! In any case, good luck!

( s10. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS | :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: )
 `~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

If you have any questions about the game, up to the point covered in the
Walkthrough, please feel free to e-mail me and I will answer them for you. I
will also post some questions I get on this FAQ.

I am writing this guide as I play the game, so I cannot answer any questions
that are further into the game than I am (which is usually the point of the
Walkthrough), I'm sorry.

QUESTION : How many new Pokemon are there?
ANSWER   : 107, bringing the total to 493. An odd number, I know...

QUESTION : Can this game trade with Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, etc?
ANSWER   : It can't do direct trades, but it can do one-way transfers from
           your GBA game to your Diamond or Pearl game. You can only do this
           after you have gotten the National Dex, by going to the Pal Park.

QUESTION : Will a _______ version of this work with a ________ Nintendo DS?
ANSWER   : Yes. The Nintendo DS and all of its games are Region-free, so a
           Nintendo DS will be able to play DS games of any language.

QUESTION : Can you trade between a Japanese Diamond and an American one?
ANSWER   : Yes, you can.

QUESTION : When is this game being released in Europe?
ANSWER   : June 30th, 2007.

QUESTION : What about Australia?
ANSWER   : June 21st, 2007.

QUESTION : Where is the Pokemon Day Care in this game? Where do I get Eggs?
ANSWER   : The Pokemon Day Care can be found in Solaceon Town.

QUESTION : I go and start a New Game, but it isn't letting me save!
ANSWER   : For some reason, you are now unable to save your game if you
           already have a save file. You'll need to erase your existing save
           file first. To do so, at the title screen (where it shows either
           Dialga or Palkia), hold in the following buttons:

                                 UP + B + SELECT

           You will then be asked if you wish to erase your saved game. If you
           say yes, you will erase the save, and will be able to start a New
           Game AND be able to save it.

QUESTION : What is the Pokerus?
ANSWER   : The Pokerus is a very rare virus that Pokemon can catch that
           increases the rate at which their stats grow. It has the same
           effect as giving a Pokemon the Macho Brace in Ruby/Sapphire, except
           without the decrease in Speed. On a more technical level, it
           doubles the EVs you get in battle. The Pokerus will spread to any
           Pokemon in your party that hasn't yet caught it, and the virus will
           go away after 24 to 48 hours, unless the Pokemon is kept inside of
           a Box in the PC. If you catch the Pokerus, it's strongly
           recommended that you spread it to other Pokemon, and then keep some
           of them in your PC so you can spread it as often as you like.

QUESTION : Can I complete the Sinnoh Dex with only one of the versions?
ANSWER   : Yes, you can! Although you cannot catch all 150 Sinnoh Pokemon in
           any one of the two games, you are able to SEE all 150 of them in
           either of the versions. Please read the following question for a
           list of where some tricky-to-find Pokemon can be found if you need
           to know where they're at.

QUESTION : Where do I find Drifloon (#65)?
ANSWER   : You can find a wild Drifloon every Friday, in the Valley Windworks,
           but only after you've beaten Commander Mars. It is a sprite and not
           in the tall grass, so you shouldn't have any difficulty seeing it.
           The only Trainers that use Drifloon in Sinnoh are in Hearthome Gym,
           so if you missed out seeing one there, you will need to catch it on
           a Friday in the wild in order for it to count as being seen for your
           Sinnoh Dex.

QUESTION : Where do I find Cranidos (#36) or Shieldon (#38)?
ANSWER   : In Sinnoh Underground. Rarely, you may find a fossil down there.
           Take the fossil to the Oreburgh Museum and talk to the scientist,
           select the fossil you wish to revive, and then step outside for a
           second (make sure you have an empty slot in your party). Then, go
           back inside and talk to the scientist again and he will give you
           the revived fossil, at Level 20. Cranidos is in Diamond, and
           Shieldon is in Pearl.

QUESTION : Can I get more than one fossil per game?
ANSWER   : Yes. You can find an unlimited number of fossils in Sinnoh
           Underground.

QUESTION : Where do I find Combee (#53), Aipom (#63), or Burmy (#45)?
ANSWER   : Use one Honey on a golden tree (found all throughout Sinnoh),
           then wait 9 - 12 (more or less) hours. The tree should be shaking
           then. Examine the shaking tree and a fight will start, and one of
           the Pokemon there might be one of the said Pokemon. Saving before
           examining the tree and then resetting will not change the Pokemon
           that is in the tree, although it will change the Level and Gender
           of the Pokemon.

QUESTION : Where do I find Unown (#114)?
ANSWER   : This one gets asked a lot, surprisingly enough, but that's mainly
           because no Trainer in the game uses one. You can find Unown in the
           Solaceon Ruins (section 6.9.).

QUESTION : Where can I see Dialga (#149) or Palkia (#150)?
ANSWER   : You will fight, as well as get a chance to capture, Dialga in
           Mt. Coronet before earning the 8th Badge in Pokemon Diamond. In
           Pokemon Pearl, you encounter Palkia instead. After beating the
           Elite Four, you can speak with an old lady in Celestic Town to see
           a picture of the one that you didn't encounter, which will count
           towards completing your Sinnoh Pokedex.

QUESTION : In battle, on the bottom screen, why are my Poke Balls shaking?
ANSWER   : It means that they're close in EXP to gaining a Level. Nothing
           more. I find that it's kind of helpful for letting me know who's
           close so I can gain that Level really quick.

QUESTION : If I were to transer my pokemon from one of the GBA games, would
           the hold item be transferred with it?
ANSWER   : Yes, every part of the Pokemon remains intact when you transfer it
           over to Diamond or Pearl by using the Pal Park. This includes its
           nickname, gender, held item, moves, stats, and so on.

QUESTION : Can you breed Legendary Pokemon? If so, how?
ANSWER   : The only Legendary Pokemon that is capable of breeding is Manaphy,
           and you can only breed it with a Ditto to produce Phione (which
           doesn't evolve into Manaphy). No other Legendary Pokemon is capable
           of breeding.

QUESTION : Where do I find the Electrizer or Magmarizer?
ANSWER   : You can only find them on wild Elekids or wild Magbys, and only
           very rarely. These Pokemon will only show up in the wild if you
           have FireRed (for Elekid) or LeafGreen (for Magby) inserted in the
           GBA slot of your Nintendo DS. Please check the section in the
           Evolving certain Pokemon section about them. (section 7.7.12.)

QUESTION : How do I move the Psyducks on Route 210?
ANSWER   : You have to get the SecretPotion from Cynthia in the Valor
           Lakefront first. To do this, make sure you've gotten 4 badges and
           gotten HM05 (Defog) from the person inside of the Great Marsh
           (right near the entrance), and then talk to the Galactic Grunt
           outside of the Great Marsh. Chase him all the way over to the
           Valor Lakefront (you have to actually chase him, not just Fly
           there) and then Cynthia will give you the SecretPotion.

QUESTION : Where do I find HM04 (Strength)?
ANSWER   : Do people actually check the ITEM LIST? Anyway, HM04 can be found
           in the Lost Tower on Route 209. Talk to the old ladies on the very
           top and one of them will give you the HM.

QUESTION : How do I get Darkrai, Shaymin, or Arceus?
ANSWER   : Cheating or trading with someone who has cheated. These Pokemon are
           not available without the use of some form of cheating or hacking!

QUESTION : Where do I get an Eevee?
ANSWER   : You can get an Eevee by talking to Bebe in Hearthome City after
           obtaining the National Dex. She'll give you a free Eevee. She's in
           the house right next to the Pokemon Center.

QUESTION : Where is _________ item? Or _________ Pokemon?
ANSWER   : Press CTRL + F, type what you're looking for, and then use that to
           search the Walkthrough. Or you could actually try looking at the
           Useful Lists section of this Walkthrough (section 8.), which has
           all of that stuff listed.

 `~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~'~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Please, if you have a question about something in the game, before asking me
about it, check the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS section that is literally right
above this part here. Or check the appropriate section. Or, better yet, use
CTRL + F to search this FAQ for what you're looking for.

Not saying that I won't do my best to answer your question, or that I'm mean
and stingy, but I'm a lot less likely to respond to questions that are already
clearly covered in this Walkthrough.

Also, don't ask me for my friend code. I can't battle or trade with the
bajillion people I get asking about it. Sorry.

And hey, remember, even simple "Thank you" letters really mean a lot. I'm
serious. If this Walkthrough or my work has helped you out and you just want
to say thanks, know that it's always appeciated and ALWAYS makes me smile!

Anyway, here it is...

E-mail address:
dp AT marriland DOT com

If that doesn't work (it should work now), please try this contact form:
http://pokemon.marriland.com/contact.php

That usually does the trick.

You can also contact me on the following Instant Messaging programs:
AIM: Marriland
MSN: marriland AT hotmail.com  (NOTE: Do NOT send me e-mail here!)
YIM: Marriland

You'll have to be REALLY lucky to see me on one of these, because I'm usually
too busy to chat, and now I'm sure there's probably fifty million people that
have added me... *gulp*

E-mailing me is your best bet. And even then, please understand that I am
literally receiving 80 - 100 e-mail messages a day. It's darn near impossible
to be able to respond to all of them. I'm just one guy, peeps. I'll try my
best, but please try to understand the position I'm in. It may take a week
before you get a response from me. If it's been longer than a week, feel free
to send me another e-mail (you can mention that your last one went unresponded
to, but please don't get all angry about it). Thank you for understanding.
