Pokemon Pearl

To get to Sunnyshore City, I visit all the lakes but the guy that stays near the steps is still there. Please help.

Games Guru: You know, I had the same problem. I found that once I finished the side quests, the guy just went away. Are you sure you finished with Lake Valor?

What attacks and what pokeballs do you use to catch Garitina?

Games Guru: Having never gone after one myself, I had to do some research on this one. From what I can find, you are going to need a Pokemon with Defog and preferably a dark type Pokemon. The experts seem to think you should take timer balls, dusk balls and ultra balls for this battle.

How do you get to Sunnyshore City?

Games Guru: Take Route 222, just east of Valor Lakefront. After you beat Palkia, the

way should be open.

How do you get to the last town, past the man on the steps who tells you the town is having a blackout? Thank you.

Games Guru: The blackout guy leaves on his own once you complete a number of side quests. Have you visited any lakes to help Professor Rowan?

    no dialgas roar of a time can beat palkia any day in one hit

  8. Anoymous: to get cressilia u must beet the Elite 4,then po to the man who takes you to iron island. there go into his house and talk to his whife. then talk to him.he will take you to an island wre you will see cresselia. then pick up the tthing it left behind and take it too the sailor. then track it down like you do for Mespirit

  9. pokemon pearl is a good game . i like that game. the end

  10. i love it.


    • Cresellia is on fullmoon island. After beating the E4 and Obtaining the national dex, go talk to the sailor that will take you to iron island. He will ask you to go to fullmoon island. Once there, find cressilia and talk to her. She will fly away and you can find her roaming the grasses of Sinnoh. I highly recommend the master ball here. She is the hardest to catch of all legendarys.

    • 1. Beat E4 (sorry!)
      2. Go to canalave city
      3. Do sailor’s quest
      4. Cressila now wanders, good luck!

    To cheese man,
    NO, BAD. Action replays are BAD!!!!!! Not only can they mess up your game; they make it no fun after you use all of those cheats. Don’t buy one. You will regret it. I bought a gameshark for my GBA and now i wish i didn’t. I restarted my game cause it was so cheated. I would throw it away if it wasn’t worth $20.

  19. to popcorn to get darkri you need to buy a thing called acton replay its a thing that has bunch of cheatcodes on it once you get it use the walk through walls cheat and go to the island with cressila (sorry for spelling) and keep running to the right then you will go to a weird island go into the woods and you will find darkri p.s.ask someone else about the island where cresila is(spelling)

  20. I LOVE Ditto 🙂

    If anyone needs help on this game I can help you, just post your question on the Pokemon FireRed page, but your answer is gonna be here.

  39. To pokefreak6464,
    Try 5% at route 227 or Stark Mountain, and the chance of a shiny is always the same at 1 in 8192. Normally I don’t correct people but your numbers seem a little off.

  40. pokefreak6464 // September 8, 2009 at 5:39 pm // Reply

    to BlastBurningBlaziken, the odds are 42 out of 745 of finding a Skarmory, but the odds of finding a shinning Skarmory are 16 out of 8592.

    to blackout, this is a myth, but if you beat the battle tower 100 times in a row you go to the Hearthrome city pokemart and there will be a man in green, talk to him and he will give you a flute. go to spear piller and as soon as you walk out of the cave pause the game and go to the key items pocket of your bag and use the flute. a stairway will open up. save the game BEFORE you walk up the stairs and then you walk up. (REMEMBER: this is a myth so it may or may not work)

    What are the chances of finding a skarmory?

  46. To lugia lover pokemon could only go to level 100

  47. To get Palkia you need strong Pokemon, a Master Ball and you will need to go to Spear Pillar in a mountain range.

  48. how do you get arceus

  49. To Bobtheduck89: Hoe do I get Palkia or Dialga?

    • Anonymous // May 16, 2010 at 6:25 pm // Reply

      On Platinum you have to beat the pokemon leauge(sorry for spelling)then talk to the elder of celestic town then go to spear pillar and find the blue portal catch Dialga then go back in the tunnel and then out again to find the pink portal catch Palkia I used ultra balls

  50. Salamence101 // August 24, 2009 at 8:36 am // Reply

    To bobtheduck89,
    Actually, the Individual values and effort values don’t matter here, as a 0 IV, 0 EV regigigas will have 229 attack with a neutral nature. Dialga, with a 31 attack IV and 252 (max) EV in attack, brings it’s attack to 226, just short of minimum regigigas.
    P.S. Your not the only pokemon master.
