Re: Pokemon Red - Diamond

I played these avidly a while ago. My first Pokemon game was Pokemon Silver. That was when I took tennis lessons, my tennis teacher said he'd by me a video game if I could manage to return twn balls in a row with a backhand (god I suck at backhands). I did it, and he got me Silver . I got stuck on Pearl though, I can't get past that stupid ghost gym, cos I got a Torterra and that stupid first pokemon that the leader has is fire and ghost...

Re: Pokemon Red - Diamond

So, those of you frequenting this thread that has played the earlier Pokemon games AND Diamond or Pearl, what is there in the new Pokemon games that made you go "AWESOME!"? What is there for me to look foward to when I finally get the game? I'd like to know personal opinions rather than official reviews. What is back in Pearl and Diamond from the previous games?

<3

The Underground -- for one thing -- I have a blast digging up hidden treasure and jewels down there!! Also, seeing the new Pokémon, the graphics (although, they could have been better, but meh -- they're better than nothing ), the improved battling system, facing off against new gym trainers, exploring a new land. Getting to face off against a new Elite 4, going onto Wi-fi to trade with other trainers around the globe, and much, much more .

You still get to battle in Battle Tower, the HM's are pretty much the same, only Dive isn't in this game, sadly . Also, after beating the game -- you can unlock Pal Park, which lets you trade up to 6 Pokémon a day from any of your GBA Pokémon games (I wish that they would let me trade more though -- since I have a ball recatching my Pokémon in Pal Park ).

I like the new control setup in D/P -- using the stylus for battles and that kind of thing gets to be rather fluid and natural after a little while. It only took me some time to get used to the new control set up.

Actually, that's reminded of something: How do you actually get to the Underround?

I've heard the Underground is a blast. I'm glad to hear that the change of controls is easy to get used to; when I saw Nintendo DS's set up, I was like -- Woah, where did those extra buttons come from? .

Here's a link with some information on how to get the Explore kit and use it to go to the Underground: http://www.serebii.net/diamondpearl/underground.shtml

Basically you can dig almost anywhere in D/P, with the exceptions of inside of buildings and on hard pieces of earth.

Hope that this helps you out .

I felt the same way at first too , it just takes a little time to get used to the new setup.

I love using the stylus too. It was weird at first but now I can't go on my DS without it. Whenever I try and play Red or Silver on the Game Boy Color, I just want to get out the stylus and start jabbing the screen

I don't like the Battle Tower much though. It seems rather dull compared to the Battle Frontier in Emerald (I still haven't got any of the gold symbols in that yet...I've got all the silver one's though)

Nice . I don't like it as well either, Emerald's battle frontier was refreshing. I still haven't beaten Pike Queen Lucy yet -- her Milotic is a pain to get past.

Well fortunately I don't have Emerald so I haven't been spoiled by the battle frontier.

Good luck with that -- it took me sometime to beat them. But once you finally do, it's worth it. Being able to go Battle Frontier is fun in itself .

She was the first one I beaten actually haha. I can't remember what I used because it was such a long time ago. I think I beaten Milotic with Gardevior. I Calm Minded up a bit while she kept using Mirror Coat and then I used Thunderbolt...I think it was a 2HKO I can't really remember...

Wow, thanks -- I'll have to do that next time I come up against her .

Yea it is, I used that glitch quite a few times. It comes in handy when it's done right.

Oh there is a cloning glitch in Emerald? Awesome. I love pokemon game glitches. I would every once in a while have a 100% legitimate RED game, but then would go right back to Missingno. and Item duplication.

I wasn't really bent on getting Emerald because I had just gotten Sapphire; and I usually don't buy the "special edition" of each series (Yellow being the only exception). Also I wasn't too impressed with the Pokemon animations in Emerald, they looked a bit shotty.

Yep, kind of risky but it's worth it, since in Diamond and Pearl you can't trade back Pokémon that you trade to those games .

Information on how to clone in Emerald

Be careful though, if you don't do it right, you can lose the Pokémon that your trying to clone. I had it happen to me once -- lost a shiny Hypno -- thank god I had a duplicate of it when it was a Drowzee.

I know, they could have done a better job on animating them... but the Battle Frontier kind of makes up for that weak spot - it's one the best parts of the game and a challenge to boot.

Ooh -- shiny Hypno. ;_;.

The only shiny I own (besides Gyrados that anyone can get in Gold&Silver) is a Shiny Butterfree in Gold, and I managed to get it in the bug catching contest! Woo, I was on my last ball too...

In my Sapphire game, I have NEVER gotten a shiny yet...The only time I saw one was when I restarted the game and was chasing the Poochyena off of Prof. Birch, and would you know that one pokemon you can't catch, that Poochyena was a shiny. ;o;

Nice -- lucky catch, I had a similar catch on my Silver version, caught a Entei in a Pokéball without weakening it, or using any status type move on it .

Oh, that had to stink -- since it seems to be harder to get shinies in the newer games.

Exactly -- Although I think the shiny ratio is the same (1 out of every 8192 wild pokemon encountered... ;_; ), It still has been forever since that Poochyena incident and no shiny's yet. I haven't even contracted Pokerus in my Sapphire yet.

Same here, been trying to get a shiny Vulpix on my Emerald version and I'm having no luck whatsoever either . The only shiny that I got on that version was a Shiny Rayquaza, via soft-reset. It took me around 70 soft-resets or so just to run into him . But it was worth the wait.

Hmm -- I never got it in that game myself, but I did get it from a Pokémon via wi-fi on Diamond version.
