Yeah, the breeding centre route is the best one for hatching. I tend to loop around the raining route on the right as well, though, as the basic up and down method is well... a bit boring.

When hatching, try to keep a Pokémon with Magma Armour or Flame Body abilities in your team. I'm not entirely sure how it works, but it lowers the amount of steps needed to hatch.

Body heat promotes hatching, that's why.

You need to keep it in a slot next to the egg in your party or it won't work, though.
Not a winner anymore.

Ah, ambiguity.

I was referring to how the game mechanism works, whether it just has to be in the party, or if it had to be next to the Eggs.
Now I know. Thanks Lurk.

Heh. I suppose that means that there was some logic behind me putting my Magcargo in slot 2 of my party, when doing breeding cycles, then. ;)

I always wondered about that if the flame body position in party affects things now is it just the egg that comes before and after or is it up down and to left and right?

did anyone else's say FIN at the end of the credits? what was that about? did i wait MONTHS for an "english" version, only for them to forget to fully translate the ending? not the biggest problem, i'll admit, but a lil annoying!

Fin is French, and is traditionally placed at the end of artsy films as a finisher. It's very common to see in English language things, so it's not a mistranslation.

Even the japanese version would have something like that. It's kind of an internationally accepted way of saying "The End."

Any idea when the 'combined', or, 'middle' version will come out. You know like there was Gold, and Silver, then Crystal. Then Ruby, and Sapphire, then Emerald.

Diamond, Pearl, ???

I've heard it was going to be called Pokemon Platinium.

But for some reason, going from metals to gems back to metals doesn't seem logical.

No.

And Chansey isn't in there, it is rare in the grass south of solaceon town.
No way dude, you're trolling me.
