I caught Dialga last night anyone with the Pearl version Palkia want to trade i don't want to just send Dialga out into the GTS or anything like that plus I dont think I can get Palkia through the GTS at the moment. I mostly just want to trade then trade right back so i have the Pokedex entry.

After you beat the Elite 4 go talk to the old woman in Celestic City. She shows you a picture of Palkia(or Diagla for Pearl) which gives you the pokedex entry.

Like I said I dont want to just send my Dialga off into the either via GTS I'll never see it again which is why I'd rather trade with someone here that way I can get it back.

Cobra, I can do it now, if you want.

Say, guys, what would be the best places to EV train? I've already figured the Old Chateau for Sp.Att and Route 225 for Speed, but what would the best places be for HP, Attack and the Defences?

HP - I usually use Woopers, try the south of Route 212
Attack -


Oh hell, just use Serebii. On the D/P pokedex scroll down and you can see all the pokemon who give a certain EV.

I think this was discussed earlier in the thread, but I don't feel like spending a half hour combing this huge thing. How did you guys catch Uxie? I stalled for 20 or 25 turns, poisoned him down to an extremely small sliver of health, then used a timer ball, and it still didn't get him. Is this a time to use the master ball?

I caught Uxie in my first Dusk Ball.

Try paralysing him instead of poisoning him, and just smack him around conventionally.

Edit: Always, I know it's a bit late to help you with your Burmy/Macho Brace problem, but if you breed a Wormadam it'll give you a baby Burmy that's the same colour as it. If you had all three colours of Wormadam, you could have just bred each of them once.

Editedit: Actually, just knowing which pokemon gives which EVs is surprisingly unhelpful. I'd be better off figuring where common pokemon that give a single EV congregate, but apart from the Chateau and Rt. 225, I'm not sure if there are any places like this.

An update on my dex. (I will complete this. I'm determined but too lazy to continually work on it.)

424 Seen
373 Obtained

I got every starter and Legendary except the Totodile and evolutions, Ho-oh, lugia, and the 3 event PKMN from this new generation. Darkrai, Shaymin, and Arceus I think the names are. Not too shabby. I got about a box and a half of pokemon I need to evolve with experience. And It's almost impossible to get more water stones on diamond. Easier for pearl.

Normally i'd recommend Veekun over Serebii any day but I dont think Veekun allows you to list by EVs. Oh well.

Here's my personal recommendations, though...

HP - Wild Bidoof. Not so hard at all.
Attack - This one takes a bit of work and the Vs Seeker. East of Jubilife there's a Lass trainer - if you battle her enough times with the vs seeker, her pokemon lineup will be Bibarel and Staraptor - that's 5 attack EVs total per battle.
Defense - Iron Island. Fight everything but Golbat.
Sp. Attack - Just south of the Pokemon Manor, in the grass. Fight with Budew and Roselia.
Sp. Defense - Not so sure on this one.
Speed - Just west out of Eterna there's a pier with 4 fishermen. The second one from the right has 6 magikarp - 6 speed EVs per battle.

Hmm... Old Chateau has nothing but loads of Ghastlys, one Sp.Att EV a pop. Route 225 is full of Raticates and Fearows, which are worth two Speed each.

I'll try the Lass, though. Thanks for the tip.

Edit: For Sp.Def, you could try surfing around the route up to the Pokemon League. Tentacruels and Mantines give two EVs for Sp.Def and the only other thing there are Pelippers, which are 2 Defense EVs.

Okay, I'm getting a used GameBoy Advance...

What pokemon games are there for it? I'm a fan of the games, but I only played them sparringly on my cousin's DS.
