Ive caught all the legendaries on my pearl cart now with the exception of the two goddamn runners, Mesprit and Crescelia -_-" They are ANNOYING to capture, seriously. How the hell can they flee battle WHILE ASLEEP?

I think taunt might work. It forces the opponent to use melee attacks.

Catch one of those high leveled Golbats towards the end of the game, they're around level 56, and have Mean Look, which stops the opponent from being able to flee.  You'll have to keep Golbat in the battle, otherwise it wears off, but it still helps a lot.

I also hear Gallade is probably the best Pokemon in the game to use for catching wild Pokemon, as he can learn both Mean Look and False Swipe.  Very useful.  :)

Wobbuffet w/Shadow Tag.

Of course, send it out after you knock their HP down a bit. But I got Palkia in a Dusk Ball anyway, so I've still got my Master.

Also, Honchkrow is just such an awesome name. Makes me wish I'd bought Diamond, almost. Honchkrow!
Not a winner anymore.

I'm so glad I didn't use my master ball in Fire Red! I can give it to a pokemon and transfer it over to Diamond through Pal Park.

That is, if it ever arrives! I'm still waiting!
No way dude, you're trolling me.

You got the map tracker app for the poketech, right? You might want to bring a move "Mean Look" next time.

Got em. I just masterballed Crescelia and traded to get Mesprit. ..though i've still got Mesprit running around in the wild now, oddly enough.

I had an eevee from my fire red and brought it to diamond. Offered one of my dittos for a female eevee and got it today. Both of them are in the day care pumping out eggs like crazy. I have 10 new eevees stored in my box and 5 more still yet to hatch. Im pretty sure the old man has 3 more eggs waiting for me but I have no more room in my party. All of my eevees are males though and getting a female is a less than 10% chance. I plan on giving my friend two so he can breed his own. Well I guess I can evolve all types now.

Woot, captured Dialga without using the masterball... surprisingly easy I might add, only used one ultra ball. Maybe I'm just lucky?

Naw, Dialga and Palkia have a catch rate ten times higher than legendaries usually do.

Grrrr, why couldn't this game come out a month later. I9 just hit live, and my time is divided between it and pokemon.

I'm in the city where you get the explorer kit. Up ahead is a cave, and I hate caves.

Warning: do not use "Me first" (a move that copies the enemie's move if you go first) on wild Geodudes, especially ones that know selfdestruct.

EDIT: this is also my 1000th post! Yey!

Finally beat the Elite Four, with pokemon ranging from level 44 to 51, going in.

That was painful.

EDIT: Wow, this game really opens up after the E4. Like a beautiful lotus flower, or something.
