Pokemon Diamond

What are shiny Pokemon? How do you get them?

Games Guru: The chances of getting them are supposed to be something like 1 in 8,000. But here’s a very long article that might help:

Where oh where do you find the HMstrength IM dieing for it?

Games Guru: Strength?  It’s at the top of the Lost Tower on Route 209.

How do you catch Azelf?

Games Guru: Since Azelf has uproar, you cannot put it to sleep. The experts say use dark balls and timer balls, and they are probably right. I find that good old standard pokeballs will do the trick eventually, but no matter what you do, save before you begin the fight. Also, you might try poisoning Azelf at the beginning of the fight and then just throwing balls. So long as you have saved, it won’t cost you anything.

How do you beat the eighth gym leader? I can’t find a moving platform that goes to him. Also, can I get some cheats on how to find legendaries besides Dialga, Uxie and Azelf? Thank you!

Games Guru: How many of his underlings have you beaten? Remember, first room: just get on the platform and press the blue button once. Second room, get on the platform and press the green button three times. In the third room, things start to get tricky.

You get on the first platform and hit the red button once, then get off and head left. Get on the next platform and press the red button once, then get off and head for the next platform. This time you hit the green button three times. Move ahead and press the blue button on the next platform to open a new path along the top of the screen. Go up and to the right and hit the red button to open the bridge that will take you to Volkner.

How do you get past Stark Mountain? I’ve tried EVERYTHING!

Games Guru: Stark Mountain is pretty big. Where are you? Have you escorted Buck?

How do you catch Mesprit?

Games Guru: First, you should have the patch in your Pokedex that lets you track Mesprit. If you don’t, return to the Poketech building in Jubilife. With this technology, you will be able to locate and even move Mesprit. Go to a patch of grass and keep saving and you will see that the legendary Pokemon moves every time you save. So save until your fingers fall off, or Mesprit lands somewhere nearby.

Now the hard part: catching it. I did it the hard way. I paralyzed Mesprit and used about a million pokeballs. If you have the Master Ball, you will get Mesprit on your first try. Since Master Balls are one-per-game, I tried a mixture of balls before finally trapping Mesprit with a regular pokeball.

If you don’t want to use or do not have a Master Ball, try the deadly combination of putting Mesprit to sleep, then using Mean Look as your next attack.

How do you get a dawn stone? I was wondering because I want to get a Gallade so bad!!!!!!!!

Games Guru: The easiest, though most expensive, way is to earn one by winning 7,200 points on Pokemon Battle Revolution — the Wii game.

How can you NOT get 3 moon stones, pikachus or Replays lined up in the veilstone lotto place when the pokeballs appear? Thank you SO much!

Games Guru: have spent very little time on the slots, but in my experience, they are very random.

How do I evolve Evee into Umbreon?

Games Guru: Evee can change into many different Pokemon. To turn an Evee into an Umbreon, you need to do a nighttime Happiness evolution.

Where do you get the fifth gym badge, and how do you get there? Also, if there are any obstacles, please let me know.

Games Guru: The gym is in Hearthome City, but you’ve got to do a few things before it’s open to you. First, you will run into some unhappy psyducks. You need to take some medicine to them to ease their pain. Then you need to make a special delivery in Celestic City. This is a good deal because you will be rewarded with the HM Surf. Then you need to head east, fight a few more battles and run into an old friend from Mt. Coronet. Once you do all of this, go to Hearthome City, and you should find the gym open and ready for you.

How do you get better signal for the DS wireless communications?

Games Guru: This is an interesting question. You might be too far from a WiFi hotspot. Have you tried taking it to a good WiFi zone?

    To Dialga-the master,

    Well this is not in order but i like Salamence, Swampert, Palkia, Aggron and torterra. however i do have a lot of others in my favorites list like arceus and venasaur, garchomp and especially lugia.

    I have a question. Who is everyone’s top 5 favorite Pokemon? Mine are (from least to most) Dialga, MewTwo, Arceus, Lucario, and Darkrai. I would like to hear from others.

    Oh, yes, and Lucario is the best character on Super Smash Bros Brawl!!!!!!!!!

    To:Terminator-Whatever. Guy, Girl, all that matters is that HE (thank you SOOOO much for correcting me… LOL!!!!!!!)

    To:Blastoise1234-OK, GHOSTs will be hard with your party, so don’t use FIGHTING based moves which do 0x damage. Catch a Haunter (Or evolve Gastly) knowing GHOST based moves to give 2x damage, but you’ll take 2x damage as well, so better yet, catch and, if possible with your circumstances, evolve a Murkrow knowing either DARK or GHOST based moves. Murkrow, being DARK type, would only take 1/2 damage, so you would have a big advantage. I hope that this helps any bit.

    To Anonymous,

    If you have any pokemon gba game in the slot when you are in the old chateau you can encounter a wild gengar. Gengar will only appear in the small room that has the picture with the staring eyes.

    How do you get the Gengar in Eterna Forest?

    Blastoise1234, HM 5(?) is Defog, and it is in Pastoria Great Marsh (The Safari Zone). A lady toward the front will give it to you.REPEAT!!! IN THE GREAT MARSH!!!!!!!

    Lucario1406, do you still have a Turtwig? Or did you mean Torterra? If you have a Torterra, then ICE based moves are 4x effective, so catch a Machoke (or evolve Machop to a Machoke) that knows Wake Up Slap. FIGHTING based moves deal 2x damage to ICE, so it should help you.

    PS-to PokeFan, Lucario RULES, especially on Super Smash Bros Brawl!!!!!!!!!!

    PPS-Ask Away!

  20. To Umbreon Freak,

    I posted a poll on a whole bunch of the Pokemon pages, but no one has voted.

    Not even Sparkoloid. What did I do wrong?

  21. I keep hearing this talk about polls so I came up with one:

    Lucario or Deoxys…

    Which is cooler?

    Vote for Lucario 🙂


    Vote for Deoxys 🙂

    You choose!!

    Blastoise1234, by choosing a Chichar, you’ll have difficulty on Gym#1, but Level up to Level 14(?) to evolve Chimchar into Monferno, and he’ll try to learn Mach Punch. It will make the Gym Leader somewhat easier,so that should work.

  24. superdude // May 10, 2008 at 8:50 pm // Reply

    to:blastroids, i had a chimchar at that time to( it evolved LOL:), i dont get it eitherLOL:) ) but i beated him. i think i did it with a machop and geode i caught at the gate and mine. hope this helps
