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.

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:  15"            |
| --------------------------------------------------- |
|  Correct |
'-----------------------------------------------------'
  ____________
 / QUESTION 2 \_______________________________________
|          "Question: what is 12 plus 28?"            |
|          "Answer:  50"             |
| --------------------------------------------------- |
|  Wrong |
'-----------------------------------------------------'
  ____________
 / QUESTION 3 \_______________________________________
|      "Question: what is 3 multiplied by 13?"        |
|           "Answer:  33"            |
| --------------------------------------------------- |
|  Wrong |
'-----------------------------------------------------'
  ____________
 / QUESTION 4 \_______________________________________
| "Question: what was the answer from the first room?"|
|         "Answer:  15"             |
| --------------------------------------------------- |
|  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!

(_| 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.

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.

You can first visit the Old Chateau after riding down Cycling Road for the
first time, and then returning back to the Eterna Forest. Inside of the Eterna

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
floor, back room).

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 upstairs area.

After obtaining the National Dex, you can come back here at night, between the
hours of 22:00 and 4:00 (according to your in-game watch) and go investigate
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.

After obtaining the National Dex, you'll finally be able to enter the
mysterious Snowpoint Temple on the north side of Snowpoint City. What lurks
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.
 ____________________________________________________________________________
(_| s6.7.1. Snowpoint City |_________________________________________________)

Head north, towards the temple, and as you approach it, the temple guard will
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.

(_| s6.8.2. Basement |_______________________________________________________)

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.

You can come here any time after seeing your Rival in Hearthome City by going
south of Hearthome City onto Route 212. Along the way, you'll see walls to a
courtyard, and inside the manor lies the Pokemon Mansion and Trophy Garden.

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.

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.

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...

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

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...

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.

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

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.

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.

      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.

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.
