Wow, I've been asking more questions than usual. xD

How many times do I have to beat a frontier place to get to the brain in Platinum? I heard it's four in a row, but I wanna make sure.

Soooo... in other words, since they're seven battles each challenge (if I'm not mistaken), I'd have to beat each one three times in a row to get to the brain? x ___x Just making sure I'm understanding it right, 'cause there's also the factor that I might need to beat it a fourth time (seeing as 7x3 = 21, not 22) to get to the brain. . x.

Yep, beat each 3 times in a row. Except for the Battle Hall, you have to beat it 5 times (5x10=50) to battle Argenta.

No problem. I battled Argenta with an Infernape, but she used Empoleon, and Empoleon used Hydro Pump and it was gameover for me. I had used EQ when I should've used Close Combat on it.

So, I got the Adament and Lustrous orbs in Platinum and returned to Spear Pillar, but neither Dialga or Palkia appear. Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? =P

Did you talk to Cynthia's grandmother in Celestic Town first?

Whoops, didn't do that. Thanks for clearing that up.

Also, is the type of pokemon Argenta uses to battle with random? (She used Gyarados on me, which didn't go well for Feraligatr. =P)

Why do PokéRadar Streaks randomly end? Is it a glitch or did I do something wrong?

2 questions for me.

1) How long does Power Trick last? I've been told it lasts until the user switches out, but I'm making sure.

2) If a Medicham uses Power Trick, will it's ability still affect it? Pure Power doubles it's Attack stat. So, will Medicham have a defense stat of 480 (Max attack of Medicham w/ Pure Power) or 240 (without Pure Power)?

1) The swap is lost when the user is switched out, much like regular stat boosts.

2) Nah, Pure Power will affect the new attack stat. For example, if the Medicham had 240 attack and 273 defence, and used Power Trick, it would have 546 attack (273 * 2) and 240 defence.

I have a question involving a glitch...

Well, I used AR to put the walk anywhere cheat on, started a new game, then walked to Oreburgh Gym without getting my first Pokemon. I went against Roark and sent out a glitch mon, because I didn't have any mons.

NOW.

Have I screwed up my original saved game? Because my brother said I would have and I didn't turn my game back on after I turned it off and now I can't find my DS *shot*

Just wondering if I should expect my 'save file to be corrupted'. ^^;

No, it will not gain any more EV's for speed b/c the max amount of EV's for one stat is reached
