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 Demick,

    You can find Areceus at Mt.Cornet but the rules are: must have nintendo wifi. can you the action replay like other CHEATERS to get the azul flute.
    3.Or just get the AR Code to get him at the Musem where you got your first gym bagde.
    4.Well when you get the Azul Flute go to Mt.Coronet it will ask you do you want to play it.
    5.Say yes you’ll start playing the flute .
    6.go up the stairs save before get on the white platform.
    7.he’ll be at lv.80 so bring along really tough pokemon.

  15. Started trading a few weeks ago.

    I’ve become super powerful!

  16. I find it kind of sad, no one works to train there pokemon anymore. Everyone just uses those action replays.
    I find it rather depressing… 😐 😦 😡

      Don’t worry Salamence 101, I don’t have an Action Replay. I got all my Lv. 100s through more than 300 hrs and 2 years of work! (technically not 2 years. I lost my DS for 2 yrs, then got a new one.)The same thing happened on my Ruby game. I had played 324 hrs and something-something mins! And the result: two hardworking Lv. 100s I still use today. (Swampert and Raichu)

    • I don’t have a Action Replay,but I have a Infernape around Lv.75 That I trained by myself.

  17. sorry about that but how and where do I find arceus? I have a national. Is there groundon too????

    Wait a minute, i don’t even have to battle. I’ve already won.

  31. Salamence101 // December 2, 2009 at 6:09 pm // Reply

    to bob89 and pokefreak6464,
    Now, i challenge both of you to a battle. The only rule is you can’t use pokemon that you trained or caught with an action replay. You have to use pokemon that you actually WORKED FOR like i do.
