We start our adventure in Twinleaf Town.

I am not going to tell you how to get through the games first start up as if you are reading this FAQ, you probably have already done it. I am also not going to try and guess at names you may have chosen for you and your "friend" so I will refer to the friend as RIVAL. ----------------------1.0.0 Twinleaf ----------------------Go down the stairs and speak to your mother. Walk outside and there is 4 houses in twinleaf. Your house is the bottom right and you can revisit your dear mother whenever for a free pokemon refresh. Your rival's house is the top left and you need to go there now so make haste. He will interrupt you and begin to leave when you near his door. He will forget something and return back into the house. Enter the house and go up to the second floor. Talk to him and he will run off again. Go down the stairs and out. Head north to enter Route 201. Your RIVAL is waiting for you there. He will talk to you when you approach him. He will follow you now. Head west, because you cannot enter the grass without a pokemon. Follow the path west and then north to enter the lakefront. Save before you enter if you want to ensure you get a female pokemon. Pick your pokemon and when you enter the battle, if it is not female, restart. ----------------------1.0.1 - Verity Lakefront ----------------------Time to get a pokekmon. You will encounter two people chatting. They will leave and forget something. Your rival will notice and you two will head into the the grass. ATTACK! Now pick your pokemon: Turtwig You get Defense and Attack at the cost of speed. Turns into a grass/ground poke and will make a better choice for an easier adventure. High attack, involves into a Fire/Fighting type poke. Rough first gym but gets easier

Chimchar -

after that. Piplup Pretty easy first gym with this poke, turns into a water/metal poke which is strong late in the game.

Defeat the Starly with your newfound pokemon. Now you are busted. You transport back to your house and your mother will give you the running shoes. Hooray! Now the fun begins. Head north (Route 201) and east through the grass. You can gain some levels here but you cannot catch any of the pokemon yet. Follow Route 201 to Sandgem Town. The man in the grass will give you a potion if you speak with him and it restores 20HP. Pokemon found on Route 201: Bidoof, Starly Pokedex seen count: 3 ----------------------1.0.2 - Sandgem Town ----------------------Your RIVAL will take you to the professor's lab. Talk to the professor and say yes to his adventure and you will get the Pokedex. After you have the pokedex, leave and you will be escorted around town. Your escort will head north a bit to Route 202 and if you try to pass, she will tell you to visit your mother. You can head south and get the Antidote and can also buy pokeballs at the mart. So, head back to your house. Talk to your mom and your RIVAL's mom will enter and give you a package to deliver. Go back to Sandgem and head north to Route 202. The person in the grass will show you how to catch pokemon and give you 5 free pokeballs. ----------------------Route 202 ----------------------Route 202 has your first trainer battle. Hopefully you raised your starter poke some levels to deal with the trainers. The battles aren't hard so you shouldn't have much trouble. There are some new pokes in the grass and another potion on this route.

Route 202 pokes: Shinx, Bidoof, Starly, Kricketot Pokedex seen count: 5 ----------------------1.0.3 - Jubilife City ----------------------Route 202 leads to Jubilife Town. Your RIVAL is located at the trainer school and it has a big pokeball logo above the door. Enter the school and deliver the package to get the town map. Battle the two trainers on the right side of the school to get TM10. They both have abras which is Psychic type. This will add another pokemon to our seen count. When you leave the school, head north to be approached by a man who is doing a promotion on watches. Find the clowns, answer yes to all of them and then get a watch. There are clowns in the town and they are very easy to find. Locations: 1) Near the pokemon center, north 2) In front of the TV station 3) In front of the watch company, Poketch Talk to the man with your three coupons in hand and you will get the watch. Before you leave town, enter the condos and the girl on the first floor will give you the quick claw. Exit Jubilife using the west exit. Once you enter the building exit, talk to the fisherman inside to get the Old Rod. You can now catch magikarps. Who doesn't love gyarados? You cannot do anything else on Route 218 until later. Head back into Jubilife. Leave town through the northern exit. Pokedex seen count: 6 -----------------------Route 204 -----------------------There is a new pokemon up here, Budew. The second trainer here will show you a magikarp. The third trainer will show Budew if you didn't find one in the grass already. Enter the cave and you can find Psyduck, Geodude and Zubat. Exit the cave once you have at least found Geodude and Zubat.

Head back into Jubilife when you are finished catching pokes and battling trainers. The east exit is the way to go but be ready for a battle with your RIVAL. He will have a Starly at level 7 and his starter at level 9. Pokedex seen count: 11 -----------------------Route 203 -----------------------Your RIVAL will show another pokemon, his starter. Quite a few trainers here. Make your way through the route getting some XP. Abra is available in the grass. If you want one, you have to throw the pokeball immediately as it will run away if you try to battle it. When you get to the end, there is a cave entrance. The trainer south of the cave entrance has a Machop for your pokedex. The cave has a couple trainers inside and also nets you an HM. It is a small cave and exits in Oreburgh City. The last trainer shows you a Psyduck if you didn't find one earlier. Pokedex seen count: 13 ----------------------1.0.4 - Oreburgh City ----------------------Finally, a badge city. However, the gym leader is not around. He is in the mines and you will have to go get him out. The first house in town has a dusk ball on the second floor. The 2nd house offers an Abra for a Machop which is a great way to get an Abra that will grow fast. Upstairs is a man looking to see a Zubat. You will get a TM if you bring him one. Enter the pokemon center and go down the stairs. Wi-fi is now open to you. The house below the mining museum has a great ball. The mine is located in the Southern most part of town. You can get a super potion from one of the workers east of the mine entrance. Enter the mine. Onix is the new poke available here. The mine has some trainers and a worker located between two rocks. Talk to him, he is the gym leader, and he will show you rock smash and leave. Defeat the trainers and collect the items. When done, head out and off to the gym.

Pokedex seen count: 14 ----------------------Oreburgh Gym ----------------------This gym is all geodude and onix. Make sure you have a poke that can handle these two (water/grass is best). The leader has a lvl 12 of each and a lvl 14 Cranidos who is very tough. It's huge attack stat will knock most of your pokes out with one hit. If you have trouble, raise your levels. Winning nets you a TM that is very similar to spikes but for a rock pokemon and your first badge!! Pokedex seen count: 15 NOTE: The GTS is now open in Jubilife which enables you to trade pokemon online without knowing friend codes. If you get a pokemon that is a much higher level than the pokes you are using, it probably will not obey you. Keep that in mind. ----------------------2.0.0 - Forest Badge ----------------------Now the quest for the 2nd badge begins. If you go north of Oreburgh, you can catch a Machop on Route 207. You can't do anything else until you have the bike so you need to go back through the tunnel to Jubilife. Once you reach Jubilife, head north for a double battle. After the battle, you will get the Fashion Case. You can now buy dress-up items to use on your pokemon inside the tv station, pointless IMO. The grunts showed some more pokes so that is nice. Enter the TV station before going on Route 204. ----------------------TV Station ----------------------On the first floor, talk to the Pikachu. It will battle you and will be added to your Dex. The girl at the counter does a lottery. Bring all traded pokemon here and draw a number. If it matches, you can get a good item like a master ball. There is a turtwig mask on the second floor if you want it. Leave. Talk to the president of the poketch company. He is

by the counter on the first floor of the poketch building. You get the app Memo Pad. Leave. North to Route 209. Pokedex seen count: 18 ----------------------Ravaged Path ----------------------You can now get through the cave with rock smash. Inside the cave, left gets you an item but dead ends and right exits the cave. Once outside, keep trekking north. The first trainer shows Cherubi. The double battle up ahead shows Pachirisu. Return here with cut to get TM78. No new pokes in the grass, TM09 is on the west side of this route. Floaroma town is just ahead. Pokedex seen count: 20 ----------------------2.0.1 - Floaroma Town ----------------------Flowers, flowers, flowers. The flower shop has the watering can and some berries. There is TM88 in the house next to the flower shop. Nothing else to see here, make your way east (Route 205). The bridge is impassable so keep going east. The grunt guarding the building has an lvl11 Glameow which is new to the dex. Fight the goon and he will lock himself inside the Windworks. He will also tell you about the goons in Floaroma town so you need to go back there. The grass has some new pokes, Pachirisu, Shellos and Buizel. Once you are back in Floaroma, move to the top left corner of the town and the goons will be gone. Now there is a secret entrance. Defeat the goons inside the garden to get the key from the old man. Grunt 1 will show a Silcoon. After the battle, the old man will give you some honey that can be put on the orange brown trees. See the Appendix to find out which pokemon can only be caught this way. Once again, back to the Valley Windworks. Leave the garden with key in hand and take Route 205 east. Open the door the grunt hid behind earlier.

Inside, be ready for battle. The grunts will be easy but the boss is a little tough. The first grunt you encounter has a lvl11 Cascoon for the dex. The boss is one of Team Galactics commanders. She has a lvl 14 Zubat and a lvl 16 Purugly. I ended up beating Purugly with a lvl 10 onix but I lost everything else. Use potions and defeat her. Once she is defeated, you can cross the bridge from earlier. The papa and the little girl will tell you about a special balloon poke but you cannot get that one yet so ignore it for now. Heal in Floaroma and cross the bridge. Pokedex seen count: 26 ----------------------Route 205 ----------------------The first trainer over the bridge has a lvl14 Ponyta. There are no new pokes in the grass. There are some items here along the route but nothing fancy. There is a house near the end of the route that will heal your pokemon. Just west of the house is a trainer that has Piplup which may or may not help with your dex. Do not worry if it doesn't. The rest of the trainers can be skipped if you do not want the XP. Pokedex seen count: 27 ----------------------2.0.2 - Eterna Forest ----------------------When you enter the forest, you get approached by someone looking for help with getting out. She will follow you and fight alongside you during your trek. One really cool thing about her following you is that after every battle, your pokemon are fully healed. The forest isn't hard to get through, just keep fighting trainers and you know you are going the right way. There are some items in the grass and also some new pokes. Going through the grass with your new friend nets two pokemon per battle as well. The first double battle shows Beautifly and Silcoon to your pokedex. The third double battle has Burmy, Kricketune and Dustox. The fourth one has a Meditite.

FAST ROUTE: 1) East, north, double battle, follow route to double battle. 2) South, easts, double battle, east, north, double battle, north, east into grass. 3) North, west, north, east, EXIT. NEW Pokemon roundup: Murkrow(D), Wurmple, Silcoon(D), Cascoon(P),Beautifly(D), Buneary, Dustox(P), Misdreavus(P) Misdreavus and Murkrow can be hard to find so if you don't, you will get to see them later in the game. Exit the forest and cross the bridge, fight the fisherman to get some lousy XP because they mostly have magikarps. From left to right, the 1st fisherman doesn't battle, the 2nd one has a goldeen for the dex, the 3rd fisherman has only Magikarp so skip him entirely and the last fisherman also has a goldeen with a bunch of Magikarp. Keep going east and you will enter Eterna City. Pokedex seen count: 36 ----------------------2.0.3 - Eterna City ----------------------Talk to everyone in the town and you should net a TM from an old lady, an explorer kit and HM Cut. If you head south right away there is a professor's aid that will give you EXP share. The condos have an in-game trade, Buizel for a Chatot. They also have the name rater who lets you nickname your pokemon. You cannot change the name of traded pokemon however. The old lady with TM67 is on the 2nd floor here. The explorer kit can be found in the house next to the pokemon center. Talk to the old man and he will give you the kit and also some tests he wants you to complete so you can learn how to use the kit. See the Appendix for pokemon that can be caught this way and what you can do underground. You get HM cut when you take the northern route in the city. There is a poketch app inside the pokemon center, talk to the girl near the counter to get it. The second badge is here and you do not need to do anything special to get it. Just go to the gym and fight for it. The

gym in town is a grass gym so you will need a flying or fire move for it. There are a couple new pokemon available to see in the gym. When you get to the gym, the leader will be waiting for you. She will hide her trainers inside the gym and you will need to find them and defeat them to be able to battle her. Enter the main room after she goes in and start searching. Go north 90% of the way then head west. The first trainer is here. Follow the path west, then south and you will find the second trainer after the 2 rocks. Go back to the door and you can see three small trees in the top right of your screen, behind them is a trainer. To get to the last one, go back to the door and follow the first path east and then north. The trainer is in the area with the four flowers. Now you can fight the gym leader. Her highest level poke is a lvl 22 Roserade. I demolished all her pokes and everyone in the gym with a lvl19 Staravia. So long as you have a super effective move for this gym, you should breeze through it. Pokedex seen count: 38 After you defeat the gym leader, you have a couple options. From here, you can head east to route 211 where there is some tall grass and a cave. This way has Ponyta, Chingling and Meditite in the grass. Inside the cave there is Cleffa but the cave dead ends until later in the game. If you can't find ponyta, give up until later one where it will be a lot more common. The two trainers you can fight along the way have nothing new. Pokedex seen count: 39 (not counting ponyta or cleffa) In the northern part of town, there are some grass trees that you can cut down. Cut them and enter the building. This is the galactic grunts building and you need to go through it in order to get the bike. You can avoid most of the trainers in here or talk to the people on the computers to get more XP. The hardest poke in here is a lvl 20 Skuntank with most of the pokes averaging lvl 15 and they are mostly bugs. You get two new pokemon for the pokedex even if you skip the trainers on the computers. Pokedex seen count: 41

Once you defeat all the trainers, the bike shop owner is released and you can enter the bike shop and get a bike. The bike shop is located just south of the pokemon center. You get a bike that is the mach bike and acro bike mixed together. You change between bikes by pressing the B button. Go back to where you got the exp share and now you can get past the guards as you have a bike. ----------------------Cycling Road ----------------------There are some trainers along here you can fight for some more XP. The first trainer you can battle has a Staravia for the pokedex. The third trainer has a Ponyta if you didn't catch one earlier. You will be able to catch one soon. The rest can be skipped if you so choose. At the end of cycling road is a girl who will give you an accessory. Exit cycling road and you are at Route 206, up the ledge that we couldn't go up earlier. There are two small trees that you can cut here. Cut them to gain access to some new pokemon. On route 206, you can find Bronzor, Stunky(D), Kricketune and Ponyta. This Ponyta is a lot more abundant than the one earlier. Pokedex seen count: 43 ----------------------3.0.1 - Cave of Doubt ----------------------There is a cave at the end of Route 206 called the Cave of Doubt. You can use the TM flash to light up the cave but Bidoof cannot learn it. If you do not want to use your TM(and who would), I have the way to go here as it is quite a maze. Enter the cave and follow these directions: SMR stands for Smash the Rock 1) North, SMR. 2) North again, SMR. 3) North, then west, SMR. *) West, South, West, South leads to two trainers and an item, TM32 *) West, South, SMR, South leads to a Hiker and dead end 4) North, SMR 5) North, then West, SMR

6) 7) 8)

9)

*) North, West, South leads to two trainers and an item (Rare Candy) North, East, SMR, continue East, South, Escape Rope. East, South, SMR South, SMR, Follow path and keeping SMRs. When you get to north or south intersection, go North. You will get Mira who heals your pokes after battles South from Mira goes to two trainers. Pokemon encounters now show two pokes Leave with Mira. Follow directions backwards. You can go back and fight the trainers now as they will be easier with healing afterwards.

I honestly do not know what saving Mira does for the main game. Since I don't, I am not going to count the above section in the Pokedex seen count. ----------------------Route 207 ----------------------Thank god that is over, head back to where you cut the trees and go down. You are on Route 207. You can now go down the ledge and back up so long as your bike is set to fast. Down the ledge is a town so you can heal your pokes. You should be OK though since you had Mira. On your way to the town, your friend will stop you and ask you to pick a hand. It does not matter which hand you pick because you get the same item anyway, the VS SEEKER and a poketch app. You want to go East on Route 207 when you are ready. Some trainers and items throughout here or you can just skip a lot of the trainers and go to the cave. The hiker before the cave has a Bronzor if you didn't see one earlier. The cave is very short and requires no HMs. Go through the cave. Same situation as before. You can fight everyone and get items or run through this part. After the grass is the berry masters house. He will give you a berry everyday. The little girl gives you a poketch app so get that from her. The girl trainer before the house has a Combee for the pokedex. The fellow south of the house has a Mime Jr and a Bonsly. There is a Karate guy south of the house that will give you the Odd Keystone that you need to capture the pokemon Spiritomb. East arrives in Hearthome City. Pokedex seen count: 46

____________________________________________________ OPTIONAL FOR NOW ----------------------Old Chateau ----------------------Now that you have done cycling road and have the ability to use cut, you can return to the forest and cut down the trees near the exit. There is an Old Chateau here. Now is your chance to get a Gastly. Inside here lies TM90 and some items. It is not worth checking this place out unless you really want a Gastly or TM90. ____________________________________________________ ----------------------3.0.2 - Hearthome City ----------------------Do like you always do when you enter a town. Talk to everyone and get stuff. The Shell Bell is available on the second floor of the house right next to the Fan Club. The Poffin Case is given to you by the Fan Club president. You need this to evolve a pokemon like Feebas. The hiker in the Southeat corner of town has an egg for you. To hatch an egg, carry the egg with you and walk a certain amount of steps with the egg. It will hatch when you reach the right amount of steps. It is usually somewhere between 3,000 and 7,000 steps and depends on the pokemon. Ensure your pokemon are healed because you are going to have to battle your RIVAL in the town. After you battle, the Southeast exit opens up. There is no gym battle here but you can talk to the gym leader outside the contest hall. ou need to do this in order to get your RIVAL to battle you. Enter the contest hall after the gym leader moves and talk to your mom. You can leave now and you will be able to battle. In the Northeast and Northwest corner of the city is a cute pokemon stroll area. Only certain pokemon are permitted here and it has some TMs and other useful items in it. The Southeast corner exit leads to Route 209 and you can get a Good Rod from the fisherman here. The Southwest exit is still blocked by the TV reporter. Go to Route 209. Your

RIVAL has evolved his starter and you should have evolved yours by now as well. Pokedex seen count: 48 ----------------------Route 209 ----------------------More same old pokemon formula here. Walk through the route collecting items and battling trainers. The Pikachu is actually a trainer you can battle. The first trainer you encounter has a Pichu for the pokedex. You can now fish for better fish with the Good Rod here. Place the Odd Keystone inside the large rock and it turns into the Hallowed Tower. This serves no purpose until you have talked to 32 people in the underground, more on that later. The girl trainer west of the Tower has a Cleffa if you missed it earlier. Route 209 leads to Solaceon Town and the Lost Tower. NEW pokemon round up: Chansey, Mime JR, Bibarel, Good Rod pokes Pokedex seen count: 51 (with Chansey) ----------------------The Lost Tower ----------------------The Lost Tower is a tower of pokemon graves. You can be attacked while walking around the tower. There are some more trainers and items scattered here. The first trainer has a Stunky(D) which is good for Pearl players. There are some Gastly here if you didn't go back to Old chateau. On the third floor, there is a double battle you can skip, don't. The trainers have Misdreavus and Murkow so that is good for both Diamond and Pearl players. You get the cleanse tag and HM Strength at the top of the tower. Leave. Pokedex seen count: 55 ----------------------3.0.3 - Solaceon Town ----------------------To the Pokemon Center to heal. Everyone around town is wearing a hat. Talk to everyone in town to get some new

items. The first cowboy you see gives you apoketch app. The furthest house east has the seal case for you. If you bring the newspaper guy what he wants, he will give you an item. Nothing spectacular. We have finally reached the Day Care! You can breed two pokemon by putting a male and female from the same egg group into the day care. Once you have put two pokemon in the day care, the man inside will give you a poketch app. The day care is also good for raising pokemon you don't want to battle with. Every step you take is 1 XP for a day care pokemon. Talk to the day care man outside when you have two pokemon in the day care to see how long an egg will take to arrive. If the old man says, "The two prefer to play with other pokemon" then you will never get an egg. No gym here, darn. ----------------------Solaceon Ruins ----------------------Located in the east side of town in a cave. The ruins has Unown and trainers. Press A on the rocks to get items. It doesn't work for all of the rocks though. There is only one right way to go through the ruins. When you first enter the ruins, there is text on the wall and it is directions on how to get to through the maze. "Top Right, Lower Left, Top Right, Top left, Top Left, Lower Left." When you get to the room with the 4 pokeballs, there is text on the wall. It is written in Unown and it possibly says: "Friendship all lives touch other lives to create something anew and alive." Leave the ruins once you have everything. Go north of town to Route 210. Unown are all different letters but only count as 1 entry in the pokedex. Pokedex seen count: 56 ----------------------Route 210 -----------------------

The first trainer in the tall grass has an Aipom and a Girafarig for the dex. You get TM51 along the way here but you have to talk at the girl on the right side of the route to get it. The second double battle has a Clefairy for the pokedex. The trainer north of the second double battle has a Happiny so if you dont want to hatch the egg from the hiker, battle him or the girl at the end of the tall grass. As you travel, you will find the Milk store and lots of people inside. If you talk to them, most of them will engage in battle. You can battle the two trainers at the same table for Sudowoodo and Mr. Mime. You cannot get past the Psyducks right now so go east to Route 215. Pokedex seen count: 62 ----------------------Route 215 ----------------------More trainers and more pokes. You can catch a Kadabra in the grass. Keep going and you will reach Veilstone City. The first trainer battle has a Shieldon which we haven't seen yet. TM66 is available from a Karate guy. The 2nd Karate guy has a Croagunk and the third one is right next to a Fist Plate but has no new pokemon. TM43 is available by way of cut along the route. The double battle at the end of the route has a Monferno so that may or may not help you but the Gyarados should. Pokedex seen count: 65 ----------------------3.0.4 - Veilstone City ----------------------Enter town, walk around, talk to everyone. Dawn is outside the gym as well as an old man who will give you TM63. There is a house with a girl who massages your pokemon once a day and gives you an accessory afterwards. Next to her is a house with a jester in it. Just keep picking the same hand over and over and eventually you will win. You get a coin case. You can get the coins from the Game Corner now and exchange them for FABULOUS PRIZES!!! WOOOT!

Ultra Balls and Great balls are finally available at the Department Store First Floor. There is also a new Poketch app in here and lots of TMs for sale. The Sticky Barb hold item is located on the roof. The app is on the second floor and you have to talk to the girl behind the counter to get it. Now we can get another badge. The gym is not too hard. Machokes and Meditites at lvl 25 and 26 until you get to the gym leader, Flying/Psychic is best. This was another gym where I could own with Staravia. The gym leader has a lvl 30 Lucario that is fighting/steel so psychic will do normal damage. You get the ability to use HM fly outside which is good because it is in the galactic warehouse. If you get stuck, try to line up all the gaps in the boards with the stairs. Walk outside of the gym to have Dawn ask you for help. Defeat the thugs, enter the warehouse and Fly is in plain sight. Fly to Hearthome and you can now leave through the Southwest exit of the town. When you exit, you will be on Route 212. Pokedex seen count: 67 ----------------------Route 212 ----------------------This route has a honey tree you can smear which is good since it is so close to town. There are also some police patrolling here. TM11 is here but requires cut, some other items as well that require surf. There is the Pokemon Mansion here as well. The first double battle has a Chatot you want to see for the pokedex. You can acquire one by utilizing the in-game trade mentioned earlier in the guide. The double battle before the Pokemon Mansion has a Buneary. Pokedex seen count: 69

----------------------Pokemon Mansion -----------------------

If you enter the mansion and go left, there is a Great Ball, Soothe Bell and a Burn heal in the trash can. If you go right, TM Swagger is in the office. Go to the garden to catch some new pokes. Roselia and Pikachu are available here as well as Pichu. After you are done, back to Route 212. ----------------------Route 212 ----------------------Head south out of the Mansion through the grass. No new pokes here but there are Wooper in the rainy grass coming up. There are some trainers along here that average lvl20. There is a girl in a house here who will trade shards for TMs. You can get shards in the underground. The first double battle in the rainy area has a Prinplup which, again, may or may not help you. It helped me so I am going to include it in the count. You will catch up soon if it didn't help you. The first fisherman has Barboach, the 2nd one has nothing new and the third fisherman has a Gyarados. The bog here is kind of a pain. You cannot use your bike on the bog. When you fall into the bog, just keep trying to move and eventually you will. At the end of the bog is TM06 so you want to be sure to get that. You can skip the bike path if you want. There are two trainers and zinc at the end of it. Route 212 leads to Pastoria City. Pokedex seen count: 72 ----------------------4.0.0 - Pastoria City ----------------------The first house is a berry lady house who will give you a berry everyday. The pokemon move tutor is here as well as the Safari Zone. The move tutor is very helpful if you transfer a lot of pokes from pal park or if you want to get a move back that you deleted. The move tutor will ask for a heart scale and you can get them in the underground. The gym in town is all water pokemon with hardly any barboach so you can do just fine with electric type attacks. The highest level pokemon in here is a lvl 30 Floatzel. You

gain the Fen badge and the ability to use the HM you get in the Safari Zone outside. ----------------------Safari Zone ----------------------The first guy on the right when you enter the Safari Zone gives you HM05. The Safari Zone has two new pokes and the best way to get them, is to use the binoculars on the 2nd floor to see where they are. Go to the area that they show up in and stand in the grass. Move the character around but don't actually take a step. You will get encounters without increasing your step count. So long as you do not run out of balls you can stay forever. I am not going to count the Safari Zone in the seen count. ----------------------Pastoria City ----------------------You should always battle all the trainers in a gym because they show you new pokemon and give you more XP. After you beat the gym, talk to the Grunt in the northern most part of town. He will run off and he tells you not to follow him, you should. Your rival will show up when you try to follow the grunt so be ready for a battle. The gym had Azurill, Marill, Wingull and Floatzel. Pokedex seen count: 76 (Halfway there!) ----------------------5.0.0 - Route 213 ----------------------Follow the route fighting trainers. Everytime you see the grunt, talk to him and make him run off again. Floatzel and Wingull are new pokes in the grass. There is a man on the route who will give you a footprint ribbon for your lead pokemon. The first fisherman has a Remoraid and the second one doesn't battle. Pokedex seen count: 77 -----------------------

Hotel ----------------------The hotel area has a lot of trainers you can battle, mostly in the restaurant. Lots of double battles in here and you get a lot of money afterwards. The pokes average lvl 20-23. The hotel clerk at the front desk will heal your pokes for you. There is a TM available on the hotel property as well. You will find the grunt here and he will finally battle you. He has a lvl 25 Glameow. Follow him again and Cynthia will meet you and give you a potion to remove the psyducks from Route 210. Continue heading north on Route 214 and take the eastern path. There is a girl trainer along the way who has a Haunter. The girl right after her has a Wormadon. You can keep heading North to find a cave on the east path that has a man asking you to catch Unowns. If you catch all 26 types of Unowns, one for each letter of the alphabet, the ruin maniac finishes the cave. The cave then leads to another area that has two more unowns. The two extra unowns are the question mark and the exclamation point. If you keep walking around the cave, you will eventually get attacked by a rare Hippopotas. In 25 attacks, I got 24 geodudes and 1 hippo. I have been told the more unowns you catch, the higher the encounter rate for Hippopotas. Eventually, you will end up in Veilstone City. If you do not care about catching Hippopotas, fly to Solaceon right away. If you go to Veilstone, take Route 215 West to the Psyducks. New Poke Round-Up: Hippopotas, Graveler Pokedex seen count: 79 (not counting Hippopotas and Graveler) ----------------------5.0.1 - Route 210 ----------------------Once you reach the Psyduck, heal them with the secret potion. Afterwards, Cynthia will show and ask you to deliver an Old Charm to someone in Celestic Town. As you travel along the route, a thick fog will show up blocking your view. Use HM05 Defog to remove the fog. There are some lvl25-27 trainers here. Follow route 210 until you reach Celestic Town.

There are three ninja trainers hidden in the tall grass. The one hidden on the east side of the tall grass has a Skorupi. The rest have pokemon we have already seen. The ninja boy above the karate man after you use Defog has a Golbat. There is a girl trainer along the route that has a Grotle. Keep following the path and you will keep getting in battles. You see Mothim, Luxio and Raichu before you end up at a bike path. The bike path leads to TM30 and a trainer. After you get the TM, head back onto the normal route. After the karate guy, you can go right for a battle and an item or left. The item is the Smoke Ball and it lets you run from any wild encounter. East dead ends so turn around and head west. The first trainer this way has a Hoothoot and its evolved form, Noctowl. That is two more for the pokedex. Take the bridge and you will be stopped by an old man for a battle. He has nothing new but you cannot avoid the battle. Celestic town is just ahead. Pokedex seen count: 85 ----------------------5.0.2 - Celestic Town ----------------------You can net a poketch app and a great ball by talking to the residents of this town. The Great Ball is in the pokemon center and the app is in the house in the southwest corner of town. A galactic grunt is blocking the cave and he needs to be disposed of. He has a lvl25 beautifly and a lvl27 Croagunk. After you defeat him, the old woman will come up to you and thank you. Enter the cave and press A on the pictures of the pokemon on the wall. The old woman will enter again and give you HM03 Surf. Now the gym in Hearthome is open! You can fly there now or you can go west to Route 211 and get a TM and fight some trainers for XP. No new pokes that way though. The TM is Psych Up. --------------------------5.0.3 - Hearthome Revisited

--------------------------The gym here is all Ghost which means a dark pokemon will own it. The puzzles are ridiculously easy but you should go in the wrong doors on purpose to get more battles in before the leader. A lot of the trainers in here have Drifloon who does a lot of damage to you after a physical attack is done to it. Be sure to fight the girl on the 2nd floor, far right door before you go straight to the gym leader. The Lvl Lvl Lvl boss has: 32 Drifblim 36 Mismagius 34 Gengar

You get TM65, a new badge and the ability to use Surf outside. This opens up a lot of pathways that you could not utilize before. You should take some time and travel to these places: Route 209 has TM19 Route 204 and the cave here Pokedex seen count: 89 ----------------------6.0.0 - Canalave City ----------------------Fly to Jubilife City and head west. You can surf near the fisherman that gave you the old rod. Keep heading west and there are 2 fisherman here you can battle. There is a lot of new pokemon this way. The sailor when you reach land has a Mantyke. The grass along the way has Gastrodons, Mr. Mimes and Glameows (P) in it and when you are surfing, you will be attacked by Pelipper. When you arrive at the city entrance, you will get a new app for your poketch. The move deleter is here as well as TM48. Be ready for a battle so straight to the pokemon center as your RIVAL will catch up to you soon enough. Your RIVAL's team is up in the lower 30s now and his main pokemon is at lvl35. Cross the bridge to have your RIVAL challenge you. Your RIVAL has a lvl30 Heracross which is new and it has a high attack stat. Pokedex seen count: 93 (not counting Mr. Mime)

After the battle, head south once you cross the bridge and there is a sailor near a boat. You can take this boat to IRON ISLAND. For now, surf south on the water and you will find TM89. Take the boat to IRON ISLAND for a rare pokemon. ----------------------IRON ISLAND ----------------------Iron Island is the home of a very rare pokemon. You get the pokemon in egg form so you are going to need an empty spot in your party. No HMs are needed so that opens up your HM slave spot. Exit the boat and go up the stairs into the cave. Steelix and Golbat are new here. You can get some good XP inside the cave. You will be attacked by a lot of Graveler and that is new to the pokedex. Ice and water attacks will help throughout the cave. There are quite a few trainers and items here. Fast Route: 1) Go down the east set of stairs. 2) Up stairs, east, down stairs, south, up east set of stairs, down elevator. 3) Go down west set of stairs, get partner. 4) Take first path south, fight trainers, south, stay on path, up stairs, south fight trainers, down stairs, up stairs, down elevator. 5) This gets you the Riolu egg. Go through cave door, up elevator, out cave. Cherrim is found in step 2 in a trainer battle. Medicham is found in step 4. You should see Steelix at some point throughout the cave as well. If you miss Steelix, it will be in the gym so do not worry about it. Riolu turns into the pokemon your partner was using in the cave. Pokedex seen count: 97 ----------------------Canalave Gym -----------------------

This gym is mostly steel and rock pokemon. Surf takes care of a lot of the enemies so you should probably have a poke that can do it well. One of the trainers before the boss has a Azuremarill The boss has a lvl39 Bastiodon. The Bastiodon can be a pain but luckily for me, it did not use Rest. It may use it against you so be ready for it. It is a rock/steel pokemon so ground moves will really hurt it. Winning nets you the Mind badge and the ability to use Strength outside. Strength will let you move the gray boulders around. Evolve your bidoof to be able to teach it Strength if you have been using one. Now you want to hit the caves. There is a cave near Oreburgh that will give you a TM and a cave near Celestic Town. After you have beaten the gym, your RIVAL will talk to you again. Go inside the library and meet him on the 3rd floor. The library is in the northwest corner of the city. Your mission if you choose to accept it, is to go to Valor Lakefront and enter where the two guards would not let you pass before. Pokedex seen count: 99 ----------------------6.0.0 - Valor Lakefront ----------------------Walk through the magikarps fighting trainers until you get to the cave. Enter the cave and be ready for a battle. The highest lvl poke in here is a lvl37 Toxicroak. It is fighting so flying works well. Afer you defeat him, fly to Twinleaf town. Pokedex seen count: 100 ----------------------Twinleaf Town ----------------------Go north and then west to where you first got your pokemon. The lake is now filled with grunts so take them out. Another battle with Mars awaits and she still has her Purugly. The double battles before show no new pokemon. One lake left, fly to Celestic Town.

----------------------6.0.1 - Celestic Cave ----------------------Head West of Celestic Town and enter the cave. Part of the cave is foggy but you do not need fog clear unless you want to get Light Clay. Otherwise, your new HM and rock smash should do just fine. Enter the cave and start heading north. You need to move the boulder. Follow the path north and then west. The fog room is coming up and you can use fog clear or you can make your way through the fog without it. Run from the battles as you will have a lot lower accuracy with the fog. Stay to the left if you just want to run through the area. Take the stairs and you will be in the room with the exit, no obstacles here. Exit the cave. NEW poke round-up: Clefairy ----------------------Route 216 ----------------------Snowing here turns into hail in your battles. I didn't have an ICE pokemon so this was frustrating. If you take the high road, a girl trainer along the way has a Lopunny. The low road has an Ambipom and grass with new pokes. Follow the path until you get to a house and fight all the trainers. Each of the trainers will show you a new pokemon. You can heal your pokes inside the house by taking a nap in the bed. After the house, go north to Route 217. The first girl in the grass after the house has a Mr. Mime if you missed it earlier. Pokedex seen count: 105 ----------------------Route 217 ----------------------The snow really starts coming down here. You fall down into heavy snow and barely move but just keep trudging along. The first trainer you battle has a Hippopotas which is good if you didn't search the cave for it.

Stay close to the west wall until you get to a house. Grab the pokeball behind the house and it is HM06. Enter the house and talk to the Hiker to get an item. Back outside, the northeast corner of the route has some grass and another house. The spell tag is inside that house and in the grass are Snover, Sneasel and Medicham. The exit to the route is north of the Hiker's house. There is a trainer battle you can't avoid and he has a Seaking. Pokedex seen count: 107 ----------------------6.0.1 - Snowpoint City ----------------------You first come across Acuity Lakefront but the Galactic Grunts are keeping you out. Head east from here through the grass. You will end up in Snowpoint City. This city is pretty much just a gym city. Walk around and talk to everyone and then take on the gym. You may get stuck in the gym for a few minutes. The gym has snowballs inside. You can slam into the snowballs and break them. However, if you touch stairs while you are heading towards the snowball, you will slow down too much to break the snowball. This is very similar to the Zelda ice puzzles in Twilight Princess except instead of pushing blocks, you are using yourself. You need to break all the snowballs in the very middle and the ones that are blocking the stairs to the gym leader. If you see a snowball can only be hit from the east or west and the east path has stairs, then you know you HAVE to hit it from the west. The leader has pokes ranging from lvl38-42. The Abomasnow is new and is tough. Steel and Fire will do best in this gym and the leader is no exception. Win and get the ability to use Rock Climb outside of battle and TM72. If you fought all the trainers before the gym leader you got Tentacruel, if not, it will show up again later. Rock Climb is useful, like surf, in getting places you couldn't before. I am sure you have seen the parts around Sinnoh that can be scaled. You can choose to go scale these places and gain items and TMs or you can continue the adventure.

Pokedex seen count: 109 ----------------------Acuity Lakefront ----------------------Now that the gym is beaten, you can enter the lakefront, do that. No battles here just more story. They tell you not to go to galactic HQ but that is exactly where we are going. Fly to Veilstone. ----------------------7.0.0 - Galactic End ----------------------Go to HQ and not the warehouse, outside of HQ, there is a grunt you can talk to who will run off and leave a key. Pick up the key and head to the warehouse. You can open the first door in the warehouse but they key will break inside the lock. Better find another key then... ----------------------7.0.1 - Galactic Warehouse ----------------------Not a very difficult area to scale, there is a bed inside the warehouse you can use to heal your pokes. You are looking for the galactic key inside the warehouse. Once you find the key, you can now get more access inside HQ. When you go down the stairs, you can go North or East. North leads to the door we need the key for so go East. Keep following East and there will be a couple trainer battles and you will have to go up two sets of stairs. Eventually you reach two warp panels. The east panel leads to a TM so take that one real quick. Then go back through and take the west warp panel. Follow the path and you end up in a room with a set of stairs in the east and a warp panel in the western part of the room. The trainer in this room has 3 bug pokemon. Take the warp and follow it and you will have to fight a scientist. This way leads to the key. Once you have the key, go back to the room you took the warp previously and take the stairs this time if you want TM21. If you do not want the TM, then just leave the warehouse and go next door to HQ. -----------------------

7.0.2 - Galactic HQ ----------------------The goal here is to get to the end and fight the boss. It is pretty straight forward. You can go slightly off the beaten path for items but you do not get far. At the end, you fight the galactic boss and get a masterball. The boss has 2 pokes weak to electric and 1 Sneasel which is dark/ice. They are between lvl40 and lvl43. Once you beat him, he tells you to go east. You will end up in another room now. There is another battle up ahead but it is easier than the one you just had. The Galactic Admin has a Kadabra, Bronzor and Toxicroak. They are lvl38 and 40. Once you defeat her, she will move out of the way and you can press the red button. This lets three legendary pokemon free. ----------------------7.0.3 - Mt. Coronet ----------------------To get to Mt. Coronet, you are going to need your HM slave with strength. Fly to Hearthome city and head west, Route 208. Enter the cave and once inside, you will need to go north. At the very top of Mt. Coronet is Dialga so be ready for a legendary battle. Bring about 30 Ultra Balls,4 Quick Balls and 6 Timer balls. Dialga will be lvl47 and is a steel/dragon type. If you are playing Pearl, you will not get Dialga but instead will see Palkia. Palkia is a lvl47 water / dragon type. When you first enter the cave, you need to head west to the opposite side. Once you reach the west entrance, head north and surf across the pond. Use rock climb to reach the stairs up. You should seen Bronzong somewhere along the way. It is the evolved form of Bronzor and is new to the pokedex. In the next room: North, West, South, Upstairs, North, West over bridge, down stairs, up north stairs, up stairs, cross bridge, down stairs, down stairs, upstairs and in cave door. Next room: Up stairs, up stairs Next room: up stairs, trainer battle, west, south, trainer battle, Out.

Now you are outside. Follow the path and use rock climb when you get there. Now instead of using rock climb again, head west and through the grass until you reach another cave. Inside, use rock climb, follow the path, down the stairs then east out of the cave. Outside again. Through the grass, down the stairs, rock climb west. Down the stairs, through the grass, keep going west and you find another cave. Enter. There is only one way to go through here so keep following the path, eventually you emerge at the very top. Inside the cave, there is also Chimecho. Pokedex seen count: 111 ----------------------Spear Pillar ----------------------Ok, 2 galactic battles and 1 legendary pokemon coming up. You can't avoid the double battle so you need to try and reach the boss. They will converge on you but your RIVAL will show up and help. The big boys here are Purugly lvl 45 and Skuntank lvl46. Once you defeat them, you rival heals your pokes for the boss battle. The boss fight is going to go pretty similar to the way it was last time. He has upped his levels some and has a new Gyarados. Whatever worked last time is still going to work this time so as long as you gained some levels, you should be fine. He has some evolved pokemon you haven't seen before so that will help out with the pokedex. Defeat him and get access to Dialga / Palkia. SAVE!! You only get one chance at legendaries so if you knock them out, you will never be able to catch them again. The best way to catch legendaries is to use a pokemon that has stat upping moves and just sit there with it out taking damage. For example, anything that is rock/steel and has iron defense would work really well here. Get Dialga in the red, use potions when you get low, throw lots of pokeballs. Throw the 4 quick balls right away and hope for the best, probably not going to work though. Use Ultra Balls when Dialga gets in the red and make the battle last a long time. If you go through your ultra balls and you still do not have it, now you move onto your timer balls. If by some miracle you still do not have Dialga and you are out of timer balls, restart.

Palkia is pretty much the same as Dialga except it is a water type so rock would be a bad choice to go up against it. I would suggest you use a water type. Palkia does not have have a powerhouse attack like Dialga's Roar of Time. After the battle, head north to get a special item for your new legendary. Pokedex seen count: 116 ----------------------7.0.4 - Legendary Round-Up ----------------------Three legendary pokemon have been unleashed now that you have helped Dialga. We need to go back to all three lakes and at each one is a legendary pokemon. Lake Valor - Azelf Lake Acuity - Uxie Lake Verity - Mesprit (runs away) The first two can be battled in the lake. Surf to the cave and battle them. All the pokes are lvl 50 and Psychic. Use the same tactic as you did on Dialga and it should go pretty smoothly. You can use the dusk ball now and it has a 4x capture rate on pokes in caves. I used Luxray with charge to keep raising my special D since they are psychic types. When you try and fight Mesprit, it runs away and shows up on your poketch marking map. If you do not have this yet, go to Jubilife City and get it from the poketch company. Talk to the president near the front desk to get it. Keep talking to him and you will get two more if you didn't have the marking map. If you want to take a break from trying to catch the legendaries, you can skip to section 7.0.5 ----------------------Catching Mesprit ----------------------Mesprit gets it's own section because it is quite a pain in the butt to get. It shows up on the map as a flashing symbol but every time you fly to it, it moves somewhere else. Also, it runs away in battle so you are going to need mean look or use your masterball. The problem with the masterball is that there is another pokemon later on that

runs away so you might want to use it on that one I suggest Crobat with Mean Look to stop it from running away. But first, we need to encounter it...Here is a trick I figured out that helps battle it. 1) Go to a main city that it goes near (Jubilife works fine). 2) Park yourself near the exit of the town and look in the top left corner of your screen. 3) Walk out of the town and when the top left shows the route name, that makes Mesprit change it's location. 4) Walk back into the town and it changes again. 5) Keep doing this over and over until Mesprit shows up on the Route you are on Once it is on your route, search the grass for a battle. It may not be the first battle you encounter but it will show up eventually. Good luck! Mesprit shows up in your pokedex as seen when it shows you the picture. Pokedex seen count: 119 ----------------------7.0.5 - Sunyshore City ----------------------We can get here now. Fly to Veilstone City and head south to the hotel on Route 214. When you reach Valor Lakefront, the path east is now open. East leads to Route 222. This is the way to Sunyshore. Follow the path, battle trainers, get items and eventually you end up in Sunyshore. The third fisherman has a Finneon and a Feebas so be sure to battle him. Enter the town and you get inspiration to battle the gym leader. If you go to the gym though, it is blocked. You need to go to the lighthouse and talk to the gym leader and he will return to the gym. Once he returns, you will be able to enter the electric type gym. Do not forget to talk with everyone in town to get items. Note the woman near the shore because you will need to talk to her again after you defeat the gym. Hopefully you have some sort of ground/rock pokemon that has ground moves. If not, any ground type move should work. The battles before the boss change it up as there are some other pokes thrown in that aren't electric including Mr.

Mime and Bibarel (to name a few). The boss has lvl46-49. He has 2 electrics, 1 water and 1 normal Ambipom. Rock/Ground wins them all except the water pokemon, a lvl47 Octillery. We finally have all 8 badges and can gain access to the E4. You need waterfall and to get it, head to the northeast section of town and talk to the girl on the beach again. She will give you HM Waterfall now that you have beat the gym. Your starter should have evolved by now so I am adding it to the count. You should also consider taking the egg you got from Iron Island with you now as you are going to need to hatch it to get the national dex. Pokedex seen count: 124 ----------------------7.0.6 - Fuego Ironworks ----------------------Now is a real good time to visit this place. It is hidden pretty well so to get here, fly to Floaroma town and head east out of town. At the first bridge you get to, surf west and follow the water. Eventually you will reach this area. You should see a Tentacool on your swim and we needed that for the pokedex. All the trainers in here are going to have pokemon about 10-15 levels lower than yours but that is fine because there really is no reason to rush to get here. This area has a lot of the tiles that move your character along so it really is just trial and error to get where you want. There are two fire stones in here which you may need to evolve one of your pokemon. The trainer east of the entrance has a Rapidash so you want to fight him. There is also Rock Incense and TM35. There is nothing else to do here so fly back to Sunyshore City. Pokedex seen count: 126 ----------------------8.0.0 - Route 224 ----------------------Once you have waterfall, surf north on the route. There is a trainer here that has a Finneon evolution so you are going to want to fight the swimmer so it is in your dex. Just keep heading north if you want to skip the items.

There aren't many here but there is TM18. You can catch Mantyke along the way. The third swimmer on the route has a Mantyke and a Mantine so you should battle him. At the very end of the route is a big waterfall. Use your new HM here and you will be taken to Victory Road entrance and a pokemon center. Pokedex seen count: 128 ----------------------8.0.1 - Victory Road ----------------------Lots of trainers, lots of items and lots of time, this cave is very large. The pokes in here are in the lower 50s. There are no new pokes except during trainer battles. You should battle as much as possible as you will need the levels. The pokemon league is right after the cave. Route: 1) Cross bridge, cross bridge, cross bridge, Rock climb, west, up stairs, north trainer battle (Blissey), up stairs, up stairs. 2) Smash the south rock, head south. Use strength. Move northeast boulder down, move north boulder west and last boulder south 2x. Head west, trainer battle (Carnivine and Rampardos). 3) Move west most boulder down once. Run around and smash rock. Move boulder again north 2x. East, follow path. Smash the rock, trainer battle (Clefable and Torterra). Move northern most boulder east, head north, trainer battle,(Staraptor and Hippowdon), down stairs. 4) Cross bridge, rock climb, west, north, follow path, trainer battle (Machamp) down stairs. 5) Down stairs, down stairs, surf east, surf north, waterfall, follow water path, trainer battle (Gabite), surf again, follow water path, up stairs. 6) West, take first path south, trainer battle (Golem and Empoleon), south, east, rock climb, north, trainer battle (Gible), north, cave exit.

You made it to the pokemon league. That is the very quick way through. You can search around the cave and find all the items and gain XP for the E4. Pokedex seen count: 140 ----------------------8.0.2 - Elite Four ----------------------Dun dun dun! We are here. The final battles to mark you as champion. There is a pokemon center here as well as a mart. The game gives you tons of money especially if you fought everyone and reset when you lose. Buy lots of potions and revives. The best items are Full Restore, Hyper Potion and Revive. I bought 30 of each and used just about all of them. My levels were far too low for the E4 but my dragon dancing gyarados did a number on them. I will recap each person so you can be ready for them. Your RIVAL thinks he is better than you so he will make you fight him first. Dispose of him. Onto the E4! Remember: Use your potions. You don't need extras after the fights so use them if you got them. Hopefully your Riolu egg hatched by now as you need it for the dex. Pokedex seen count: 142 (with Riolu egg) ----------------------E4 Aaron - Bug ----------------------Aaron is a bug guy so fire/flying works well. They range from lvl 53 to lvl 57. Heracross is 4x weak to flying and the only one that isn't weak to flying is the LVL57 Drapion. It is dark/poison so psychic will not work out either. Use fighting/ground against him if you got it. Pokedex seen count: 145 ----------------------E4 Bertha - Rock/Ground ----------------------Bertha has pokes between lvl55 and lvl59. All her pokes are weak to water save Quagsire. It will double team and use sandstorm. Water will raise its HP so do not use a water

attack against it. She isn't hard at all if you took Prinplup. Pokedex seen count: 146 ----------------------E4 Flint - Fire ----------------------Flint is not all fire and it even has an onix. Water still does well here against 3 of the 5 pokes. They range from lvl57 to lvl61. He isn't hard but be careful of Lopunny as it knows mirror coat. Mirror coat will hurt special attackers so use physical attacks. ----------------------E4 Lucian - Psychic ----------------------Hopefully, you took my hints and have a Gyarados by now but if not, any dark type will do. All his pokes are psychic so dark hurts them. Bronzong has steel though so it will not be super effective. Gyarados will die quick against Mr. Mime if he cannot strike first as Mime knows thunderbolt. His pokes are lvl59 to lvl60. The champion awaits... Pokedex seen count: 147 ----------------------Champion Battle ----------------------She has a lvl66 garchomp and all her pokes are lvl60 or greater. Spiritomb is probably new to you and it is like sableye, it has no weakness. Garchomp will fall to ICE (guess who knows ice? Gyarados!). I didn't have much trouble with her, I used Dragon Dance a few times with Gyarados and swept everyone else in one hit. Milotic will take an electric attack as it regenerates HP and has a good special D. Do not inflict it with any kind of status problem as it's ability will make it stronger. Grass will work well too against Milotic. Beat her and get in the record books. You are now the pokemon champion. woot! Pokedex seen count: 149

----------------------9.0.0 - Done? ----------------------Not quite. There is still plenty of pokemon to play. You can try and fill your dex with captures instead of seen, you still have places you haven't explored and Pal Park will let you bring your pokemon up from older GBA games. Bottom line: If you quit now, you are still missing a lot of the game. So, keep on keepin' on. ----------------------9.0.1 - National Dex ----------------------To get the National Dex, fly to Celestic town and go north in town. The center house has an old woman you can talk to and she will show you a picture of Palkia or Dialga depending on your version. Once you have the picture, your dex should be full of seen pokes. If it isn't, you haven't fought all the trainers so you will need to either raise the missing pokes, or go find the trainers you missed. If you have all 150, go to Sandgem town and talk to the professor. He will give you the National Dex. Pearl Exclusives: Spheal, Bagon Slowpoke, Pinsir,Houndour, Stantler,

Diamond Exclusives: Seel, Scyther, Murkrow. Larvitar, Poochyena, Aaron, Kecleon Again, all the pokes evolutions are also exclusives to each game. Another advantage to the National Dex is now you can get swarm pokemon. Every day there is a new pokemon swarm in Sinnoh. Fly to Sandgem town and talk to the little girl watching TV in the house just below the pokemon center. She will tell you where to go to catch a rare pokemon. Pokedex seen count: 150!! ----------------------9.0.2 - Pal Park -----------------------

Pal Park is closed up until you have beaten the Elite Four and have the National Dex. You can transfer your old pokes from the GBA games to Pal Park. To get to Pal Park, fly to your house and surf South. The route turns east so follow it until you reach land. Pal Park is at the very end of the route. There are trainers along the way so you might have to fight some people. Pal Park has to be stocked in order for you to catch your old pokes. You have to stock it before you start up your save file. To stock Pal Park, place your GBA game in the GBA slot. Any pokemon that you want to transfer will need to be in boxes on your GBA game. Start up diamond and get to the screen where you can pick New Game or your save file. You will have another option there that says Migrate Pokemon.. You want to pick this option and then use the touch screen to select the six pokemon you want to migrate. The pokemon will be moved from the GBA game and not cloned. Now, load up your diamond save and enter Pal Park. You have to catch your old pokemon again but you get Pal Park balls which never miss. Your old pokes will be exactly the same as they were on the GBA game. You may have to re-think their move sets now under the new diamond attack scheme. You can take the pokes to the Move Relearner in Pastoria City and he can teach them a move they didnt learn because they were not leveled up in Diamond. This is very useful. One thing to note about Pal Park is that you can only transfer pokemon from a game pak once a day. You can transfer pokemon from multiple game paks but till only once a day per game pak. ----------------------9.0.3 - Cresselia ----------------------Fly to Canalave City and head towards the boat that takes you to Iron Island. Enter the house right next to the boat on the west coast and there will be a woman and a sick child. Talk to them both and then go back outside. Talk to the sailor and he will ask you to save his sick boy. He will take you to a new island. This island is empty besides the legendary pokemon. It is a quick walk to it and it will run away just like Mesprit did. Cresselia is a Psychic type pokemon at

lvl50. Use the same strategy you did on Mesprit. You will have to use the marking map again to find it. If you haven't used the masterball, now is the time. ----------------------9.0.4 - Island Area ----------------------This area becomes available after you have beaten the E4. Fly to SnowpointCity and move to the southern port. You can now take the boat to the island area. This area has a lot of new pokes that will help fill your national dex. It also is the home of legendary pokemon Heatran, a lvl70 monster. Upon arriving, you will be greeted by your RIVAL. Afer the discussion, move north and talk to the fisherman. He will give you the Super Rod. If you keep going north, you will arrive in the battle zone where the battle tower is located. You can fight in offline mode or wi-fi battle tower here. The Wi-Fitower downloads data and you fight against teams based off of internet teams. The trainer is a cpu however and not a person. You can move north or east from this area. I went east so I will tell you also to go east, Route 230. ----------------------Route 230 & 229 ----------------------Route 230 is a surf route so you need a pokemon who has surf. There are some swimmer battles along the way and some grass to catch old pokemon in. You will need rock smash to get the item on the grass island. Every trainer in the island area uses old pokes so it will help you fill your dex if you fight them. Keep heading east and you will reach route 229. When you reach land, go east and then south.

----------------------Resort Area -----------------------

You can now fly here. There isn't much here but grass and a special area that you can only enter once your pokemon has enough ribbons. From here, you want go head to the northwest part of town to access Route 228. ----------------------Route 228 ----------------------All battles here will be in a sandstorm. If you want to rush through the route ignoring items and such, stay off the bike slides. Keep heading north and when you reach a dead end, head west through the grass. Move north and west again to Route 226. ----------------------Route 226 ----------------------There are two ways to go here. You can surf through the water and there is a gentleman in a house who will give you a foreign language poketch app. It oesn't really help much unless you want your pokedex in a foreign language. Instead of that, head north and use your bike to jump the two ramps. Jump down he cliff and then head west then north. Then east, up the stairs, use bike to ross, through the grass, east, south then through the grass again. Go up the stairs, up the stairs, through the grass, west, enter Stark Mountain. ----------------------9.0.5 - Stark Mountain ----------------------This area has a lot of double battles and you are going to need Rock Smash, Strength and Rock Climb to get through it. Quick way through is up ahead... 1) Use rock smash and then Strength. Push the boulder down the stairs 2) East, move north and south rock east, push middle block north 3) North, up the stairs, push boulder, down the stairs, up the stairs, east 4) Rock smash, up the stairs, push boulder, up stairs, up stairs, door.

5) North and you will get a partner. You know how it works now. 6) East, north, down the second set of stairs, north, west, up stairs, trainer battle. 7) West, north, east, down stairs, push boulder east, up stairs, door. 8) Your "friend" takes your item. Escape Rope. When you are heading back for Heatran, you can use the bottom steps if you wish since you will be able to use rock climb now. 6) East, down the stairs, west, north after trainers, rock smash, rock climb 7) East, rock climb down, east, north, rock climb between trainers, door. Of course, you can go through this area and get the items if you choose. The iron ball and TM50 is in here. The survival area of the island has a TM but nothing else. You can get there by either heading north from the battle area or keep heading west and surf from Route 226. Buck is here waiting inside a house. Talk to him and he will return the stone to Stark Mountain. You need to return to where you last brought him. This time, there will be a lvl70 pokemon there. It is a legendary so you are going to need lots of pokeballs. Dusk balls work good as well as timer balls and ultra balls. It will take awhile to catch. Heatran is a fire/steel pokemon so use a water attack to do 2x damage to it. It will usually take more balls than Dialga/Palkia. I highly recommend Dusk Balls for any pokes inside a cave. They are available at the pokemon league mart. ----------------------9.0.6 - Regigigas ----------------------You will need to use Pal Park to have access to this lvl70 beast. In order for this Regi to show up, you need to first transfer Regirock, Registeel and Regice from Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire to Diamond/Pearl. With these three pokes in your party, head to the temple north of Snowpoint City. You will be blocked at first but Cynthia will show up and tell you it is OK to enter. Regigigas is in there and is a normal type.

1) Enter, go down stairs. Calcium is here and another staircase. Go down. 2) This next room isn't hard. Follow the path and go down the stairs again. 3) Now the ice puzzle. Go down the ice that is between the two rocks. East,north, west, north, west, south. You should stop now. West, north, east, north, stairs. Walk through the rocks and go down the stairs. 4) We can now see Regigigas but first, ice puzzle. Stand by the 3 rocks so that you make a square. Head east onto the ice. 5) South, stop, south,east, north, stop, west, south, east, North. Press A on Regigigas and as long as you have the 3 REGIs in your party, the statue will come alive. Ghost type works really well here. Make sure you have a lot of Dusk and Timer balls. ----------------------9.0.7 - Giratina ----------------------A new path has opened up near Veilstone city. You can get their by flying to Veilstone and heading south. Stick to the east side while heading south and you will see a new opening. This is the spring path. The spring path leads to the Sendoff Spring. Walk around the spring until you get to a cave entrance. You will need to use Rock Climb to enter Turnback Cave. The cave is very difficult to navigate through and if you return through a door from which you came, you will back at the beginning. I was able to get to Giratina in six rooms but when I tried to duplicate it, it wasn't the right route. It seems that the cave is random. You need to get past 3 pillars per the writings instructions. The first room is easy as you can just turn back if you pick a room that does not have a pillar. Also, do not forget that you can also go south. When you do encounter Giratina, it will be lvl70 and is a ghost/dragon type. A normal pokemon works very well here as 2 of the 3 attacking moves Giratina has do not effect normal types. It will be only using slash on your normal

pokemon so a pokemon with Intimidate is going to work out even moreso. Dusk balls catch it. ----------------------9.0.8 - Rotom ----------------------Rotom is available in the Old Chateau once you beat the elite four. Return to the chateau and head upstairs. There is a TV in one of the rooms up there so press A on the tv. You will be attacked by Rotom. Rotom is an electric ghost and is at lvl15 so do not bring your legendary capture team. If you do not encounter Rotom on the tv, try again later until you finally do. Keep trying, it is there. Rotom comes out at night so do not look for him during the day. ----------------------9.0.9 - Event Pokemon ----------------------Manaphy - You need to beat Pokemon Ranger and transfer Manaphy egg from Ranger Arceus - Requires an event the

Darkrai - Requires an event Shaymin - Requires an event None of the events for the USA have been planned yet. WAIT AND SEE. FROM STEPHEN E. "I was looking at the area near the end and noticed that you had the event Pokemon, and that the events are not in the US. Well, people don't have to wait for an event. Put this in your FAQ: Go to the Jubilife TV Station and find a reporter. He will then ask what you think of TV or something. Put "EVERYONE HAPPY". Then he will ask for feedback. Put "WI-FI CONNECTION". This unlocks the "Mystery Gift" option at the main menu. Save your game and restart the DS. Then select "Mystery Gift" on the main menu. You will have 3 options: Obtain via Friend, Obtain via Wireless or Obtain via WFC. When you beat the Elite 4 and obtain the National Dex, go to the Obtain via WFC. The mystery gift will be downloaded

from the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (Nintendo WFC). That is another way to get the event Pokemon without cheating." This enables the mystery gift option on startup but you still need to wait for the event to happen to get the event pokemon. The following sections only apply if you obtained the event via hacking or mystery gift. ----------------------Darkrai ----------------------Enter any pokemart to see a man in green standing next to the counter. Talk to him and he will give you the Members Card. Fly to Canalave city and head north of the pokemon center. There is a Harbor Inn that you can now enter. Once inside, you will be put in a bed and taken to an island that just has Darkrai waiting. Darkrai is level 40 and you cannot leave the island unless you capture or defeat Darkrai so be sure to bring a party that can handle it. NOTE: You cannot get into the Inn if you have not cured the sick boy with the Lunar Wing. See the Cresselia section of the guide if you have not taken care of the sick boy. ----------------------Shaymin ----------------------Enter any pokemart to see a man in green standing next to the counter. Talk to him and he will give you the Oak's Letter. The letter is a request for you to go to Route 224 so go there now. Fly to the Pokemon League and head south back into Victory Road. There is a cave that goes east in the first room of the Victory Road cave and it is open now. You need to take that cave. Why going through the cave, you will meet up with Marley and she will ask to follow you through the cave. The cave gets foggy here as well. You are definitely going to want to have Defog in here as the cave is long and tedious. The cave's exit is in the northwest corner and you end up outside. There is grass here and some trainers. Make your way north through the grass. Keep heading north and you will reach a white rock with Oak standing in front of it. He will ask you to thank someone and put what you want and suddenly, flowers eveywhere. Shaymin will appear and run away so

follow it! Run along the new path for a while and you will eventually reach Flower Paradise. Shaymin is just ahead. Shaymin is lvl30 and has a recover move. It isn't hard to catch and I caught it full health with a great ball. Once you have caught Shaymin, fly away. Shaymin comes attached with a Lum Berry. ----------------------Arceus ----------------------Enter any pokemart to see a man in green standing next to the counter. Talk to him and he will give you the Azure Flute. You need to go to the Spear Pillar again, to where you faught Dialga/Palkia. When you get to the top, the flute will play and a staircase will appear. Go up the stairsway and as soon as you reach the top, you fight Arceus. Arceus is lvl80 and changes forms depending on which plate you attach to it. ----------------------CONCLUSION ----------------------That concludes the main section of the walkthrough. Your job now is to fill your dex, trade online and battle online.
