I don't think so, but do you really want Rain Dance that badly? You should find it on route 223. ^^'

On the Bulbapedia page for the Matsuda Method, it states that 'If, in the Pokémon daycare, the game recognizes one of the Pokémon as having a different home location as the other, the chances of having a shiny Pokémon in the egg will increase to 1/2048 instead of the usual 1/8192.'

Does this mean that if someone purchases two copies of a generation 4 game and sets one of their game locations to Japan or something (by going to the WiFi building in Jubilife) they can still breed two Pokémon from different games without having to ship one in from cousins in Germany?

does anyone think a shiny cyndaquil for a normal manaphy is a good trade?

JAHZ: No. No it isn't. Manaphies are much easier to come by than Shiny Cyndaquils.

No, the game cartridge itself has to come from a Foreign country

I'm not sure where to post this question, but here goes.

I wanna rush through Platinum so I can get the event pokemon, but I have the attention span of a dead rabbit (It's summer, this always happens D: ). So I was considering just running through the game with one pokemon.

So I was considering using one of these three;

Torterra; The obvious choice since it is a starter pokemon. >__>
Staraptor; I love Staraptor <3
-Other-; Anything you guys can recommend


So I'm just looking for suggestions. If you wanna know I'm just past the forest (No more tag-team thing D: ).

Soo, <__> yeeea, help?

I reccomend just catching a Gible (Wayward cave is not blocked in Platinum). Happy Chomping, if you do so. And three Pokes are enough

Is there any way to store items like it in LG/FR in the computer other than having the pokemon just hold them? I have a huge list now and would like to move them around some. Thanks

Nope. They got rid of the item section of the PC for some reason. I guess cos your bag can hold an unlimited amount of items now. It's kinda annoying, but you could always try rearranging them in the bag so the items you need most are at the top or something. Then you won't have to spend ages scrolling through. =]

Fact is, the ages spent scrolling can pretty much be inevitable. What i do is try to group items into categories so whenever i need to look for a certain item i can scroll down to where its category is located.

Secret key is used to change between rotoms 6 forms: normal (one you find), wash, mow, frost, heat, and fan. if you go to the galactic hq in eterna city, go to the far left corner. use the secret key and enter the room and you have a bunch of kitchen appliances which you can use to change your form as many times as you like :)
