Pokemon Diamond and Pearl

I can’t get the poke radar to work. I already have the national dex and whenever I try to use the radar, it always says (Professor Rowan’s words echoed) “There’s a time and place for everything, but not now.”

Games Guru: It only works when you are standing in the kind of tall grass where Pokemon like to hide.

Can you give me directions through Stark Mountain?

Games Guru: Stark Mountain is just too large for me to give a walkthrough. Sorry.

Is there really a Stareon and a star stone?

Games Guru: I have run across Staryus, Omastars and Staraptors, but no Stareons or star stones. Sorry.

Can you tell me how to use the Pokemon radar? I clicked on it with my stilus and I went into the light green grass for Pokemon, but nothing shows up. HEEELLLP!!!!!

Games Guru: You are going to need the National Pokedex before your radar works. You will know you have it when you see a meeting between Professor Oak (the professor in many earlier Pokemon games) and Professor Rowan.

How do you get through Victory Road?

Games Guru: You are not the first to ask this question. I am not going to give you step-by-step directions, but I will give you clues.

You will need a mixture of your toughest Pokemon and what I call “Traveling Pokemon.” These are monsters trained with moves for traveling that may not be so good in fights. They include strength, rock smash, surf, waterfall, cut and rock climb.

Victory Road is a great place to catch wild Pokemon, though I generally prefer to make it all the way through, then go back in to catch wild Pokemon such as Steelix, Onix, Graveler, Golbat and Machop. You will have plenty of fights even without battling wild Pokemon. The place is crawling with trainers.

To avoid unnecessary fights, give the Cleanse Tag to one of your Pokemon and take plenty of Max Repel.

You are going to want to rock climb every rock climbing trail, push every moveable boulder, swim up every lake and waterfall, etc. I think you will find that this Victory Road is actually shorter and easier than some past ones.

One last hint: At the end of the road, you will come to an exit blocked by a guy who tells you something about the world getting bigger. Do not waste your time with him. Go back a few paces and you will see a rock climb. Scale it and you will reach the end of the road–or at least the end of the cave.

Can you trade Pokemon from Emerald to Pokemon Diamond?

Games Guru: Yup! Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed and LeafGreen are all Diamond and Pearl-compatible. Just plug your cartridges into the Game Boy slot on your DS.

  2. What is the code for Perinum?Please tell me!!!!!!And yes , I do think that your level 999 Darkrai will win!Darkrai’s my favorite pokemon of all time!!!!!!

  3. liljuicy the shard guy in this game is in a house to the west of Pastoria city. but it costs 10 shards and you don’t even get a stone, you get a TM. ( I know now that’s a rip-off but I guess that’s how the game designers made it that way 😦 ) BUT BEFORE YOU STOP READING THIS COMMENT! you find Evolution stones in the Underground.

    caterpielover, i know that because i saw your mess up. this is what you typed:Weavile, i challenge you to a double battle and if i win i get your Brontower. why would you need Brontower if Perinum is already good enough? you dont have Perinum.

    GROUDON, i think i would be the only one able to answer those questions. Mentis is a region, so it is there already, just get to the Crystal Pyramid. the Crystal Pyramid is the place where a lot of high-leveled pokemon live. also including Perinum. a strong Ghost/Dark pokemon. its moves are very powerful. one of the best things about it is you catch it at lv.80. if you need more info about it just ask me.

  7. yup groudon i wasnt here for a long time either!

    to answer ur question: the mentis pokemon is a pokemon in pokemon peridot, pokemon geniuses game. so is perinum.

    where do u buy it?

  8. how do i get rock climb i cant find it anywhere

  21. pokemon genius // January 3, 2008 at 12:19 pm // Reply

    Darkrainer, i kind of forgot to tell you how to get there. if you have rock climb, there is a special shortcut at the bottom of Mt. Blizzard that you cant see because it is covered with snow. its sort of near the left side. then it will say oh no! ice! then you will slide on the ice to this cave area. go straight then go out and GO IN the hole. you will fall into Icy path then run alot you will get to Frozen Town. go north up a route and suddenly the snow will melt and you will be in a desert. keep going to the Pyramid. once you get there you need the Gold Key from the man in the 8th gym, flash, the Emerald Peridot, strength, rock smash, and rock climb. it is the biggest and hardest maze ever made in the pokemon games. once you get to B8F you will find Perinum, you should use your Master Ball because Perinum is amazingly strong and could beat ANY pokemon in one hit and you will lose. in Mt. Blizzard you can just go through the maze but it is also big.( half as big as the Pyramid) so its easier to use the hidden rock climb.

    and fireboy, Perinum and the Crystal Pyramid are not glitches, hack, or anything like that. and i have no idea what TRIALKEIA is, but it might just be made up, or glitch, or hack.

  23. pokemon genius // January 3, 2008 at 11:57 am // Reply

    Darkrainer, the Crystal Pyramid is up north by Mt. Blizzard, in Mentis, not Sinnoh.

  24. where can i find the pokemon darkrai without action replay and nintendo event?

  25. What the heck is the Pokemon TRIALKEIA and what the heck is the Pokemon Perinum and what is the Crystal Pyrimad and are they real or just rumors or some kind of glitchs in special games or AR codes?
