    Just done the Pokemon League as well :D

    SO what's good to do now Diddy? I suppose I could capture that Mesprit that's running around, Do I use the masterball on it or is there a harder legendary to catch later?

    Well there's two legendarys that leg it .. Mesprit and Cresselia. I imagine Cresselia would be harder to catch if it was a higher level, but luckily I have a spare master ball on Leafgreen so i transferred that over using Pal Park.

    There's some more legendaries you can get, Regigigas (needs you to have Regice, Registeel and Regirock - transfer them from Pal Park) .. Giratina, Cresselia, Rotom.

    If you have well-stocked old Pokemon games, then you might want to try and complete your pokedex (oh, go get the National Dex by filling up the Local dex to 150).

    There's also the Pokemon contests, Battle Tower too...

    MUCH ANNOYANCE

    I migrated some of my best pokemon over from Ruby and when I went to play Diamond it said the file was corrupt.

    Oh well that's my diamond journey over, it was good but It didn't have that excite and obsession that I had for the previous 3 generations.

    Well my file has magically decorrupted itself (playing Harvest Moon made me realise how GOOD this game actually was)

    Mesprit just WON'T be caught, I got the Lunar thing though. I think I'll get the Regi now.

    I agree, they should remake them like they did with Red and Blue.

    You got cresselia? Well done! Or did you use the Master Ball?

    If you haven't used it on Cresselia, then you might as well use it on Mesprit - there's nothing more tricky to catch than them, the rest of the legendaries aren't especially hard to catch (Regigigas is a bit of a shitballs but i was unprepared, i had to get him with a hetfy chunk of red HP left and no status effects!)

    Masterball :(

    Yeah Regigigas was abit of a wanker but I got it eventually. Giratina was surprisingly easy though :O

    I'm not liking the THREE event pokemon :angry: I wanted to complete my pokedex :(

    its ok, they dont show up on your pokedex until you have them (they are 491, 492, 493), and your pokedex will still be full without them. Hooray!

    I never liked the idea of event pokemon to be honest but what can you do?

    oh, and getting Mesprit, try using Mean Look on it to stop it running off. You should be able to get a high level Golbat in Victory Road if needs be, they can learn it at least

    Yes of course GOLBAT.

    I've been thinking of a pokemon that has mean look, I caught Gastly but that's too slow, and I got a Wobbefet with it's shadow tag ability but eventually it faints and it doesn't know any moves that will damage it just slightly.

    It must be that I used repels all through victory road so they weren't in my face annoying me with confuse ray every 2 minutes.

    I cant say I'd want to use Golbat, but I suppose you only need to use Mean Look once, right? I dont know if it stays if you switch out.

    Diglett has Arena trap, but I guess Mesprit would kill it pretty easy too.. and thinking about it, i'm not sure it works on Pokemon with Levitate.

    There's a move called Block too, but I dont know who does it..

    oh, and yeah :p .. but you can get these from GTS, you just need something tempting (and replacable)

    Female combees might be good since you cant cheat Pokemon D&P yet can you? .. I got a Dialga by offering a Feebas (:D), just get pokemon that are difficult to find

    Well I've got a Golbat with Mean Look, so I'm battling it now. Yeah you only have to use it once and you can't switch out.

    Still no luck with catching it, I rarely get past one shake.

    Wahey :D

    I decided to scrap the mean look idea and just use a quick ball straight away and after a couple of attempts it worked!

    Well that's that fucker outta the way at least.

    :D you lucky sod!!

    For some reason, the event pokemon should already be on your GTS list, but in general, yes, you're right

    I've racked up over 50 hours now :shy:

    Just finished catching all the "one only" pokemon... Might call it a day actually, since I'm just NOT going to finish the pokedex.

    How's the old pokedex going for you Diddy?

    I've seen 475 :o and touched about 455 I think. Levelling up Omanyte and Kabuto is tres boring.

    You dont have to fill the pokedex (god, you got all the legendaries in one day?) .. you could try and fill the Sinnoh dex at least?

    Like I said, there's the other trainer card stars too (Battle tower, Pokecontests, Underground Base thing)

    Well I DID IT :D

    I've got one of everything now! My pokedex is 490. Though all I get is a star on my trainer card (got three now)

    Next stop - Battle tower!

    Is anyone still playing? :(

    Battle Tower is a shitty bastard. I don't know how I will ever get 100 in a row ... I decided I'm going to do the contests first. At least I can get a 4 stars on my card

    Nope :(

    I decided to play Pokemon Ranger which turned out to be quite good in the end :O

    I think I will return to it one day though.

    it IS good isnt it? Better than cruddy old Mystery Dungeon.

    I can usually tell if I really get into a game, if it can make me so angry I want to break something, but I'll still go back to it :p

    and of course it's the only way to get a Manaphy!

    Yeah... It took a lot of reseting the game before I got one!

    There's like NO new fire types... which is a tad odd... and some of the ridiculous measures you have to take to get them to evolve now are a bit silly... but hey ho! I started with the little cute penguin :D

    oh see I started with the flaming monkey, he learns fighting later on :D

    I think there are new fire types, but not for ages, you'll have to settle for a (c)Rapidash

    New fire types are the starter, Heatran (legendary) and Magmortar (Magmar evo and quite dufficult to obtain).

    Yes, fire's been let down BADLY.

    I've just done Gym number four.

    oh is that all? that's SHIT
    I got my Magmortar off GTS .. you can only get it normally if you have Leaf Green in the other slot and catch a wild magby with a Magmarizer ... STUPID.

    It was worse for the Electivire (evolved Electabuzz) because you couldnt even see it in the game so you couldnt get it off GTS :mad:

    Empoleon, Roserade, Staraptor, Skuntank and Luxio .. all around Level 40

    6th keeps changing, depending on the HMs need.
