How do you find Manaphy?

Games Guru: You can’t find him in Platinum. You can import Manaphy Pokemon Ranger or Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, however.

Could you please make a Pokemon Platinum board? Thanks.

Games Guru: No problem. Here it is.

    NEWS BULLETIN: New 5th generation pokemon revealed.
    Zorua—–Type: Dark— Classification: Evil fox pokemon
    Zoroark—Type: Dark— Classification: Monster fox Pokemon
    These have been confirmed although no information on 5th generation games have been released. This is not an early april fools joke either.

    • where did you hear about this

    • pokemon genius // February 26, 2010 at 5:35 pm // Reply

      Even though it says that on Serebii, those can often be fakes to make people anxious to see the next games, and to create attention. Realistic pictures can be talked about, but there actually IS a whole list of fake pokemon, mostly made to look like starters.

    • the names are zora and zoradda and will star in the fifth-gen games: black and white. you can see what they look like on youtube.

  10. i like need a ditto does anybody know how to get one

    • You need a Poke Radar, then you need to take it to Route 218 and use it in teh grass. Itis one in about 18 different pokemon so………..

    • or you can transfer one when you have beaten the eight gym leaders and you have one on leaf green or fire red and you can catch it at pal park

  11. my favorite region is kanto and sinnoh i never played hoen and johto region thats why i can’t wait to get soul silver

  12. Anybody got a villa? With a TV?

  13. wat do you do after u beat the elite 4 2x

  14. Legendary Elite Four!Fire:entei,Ho-oh,Moltres,Groundon,and Charizard(I consider starters as legendaries because you can’t catch’em)Water:Articono,Suicune,Lugia,Kogere,Palkia. Phycic(sorry):Mewtwo,Mew,Celibi,and two of the lake pokemon(forgot their names!moannn!)Dragon:Dialga,Giretina,Rayquza,Latios,Latias,Arceus with dragon plate!Please comment more on it this time!

  15. hey other pokemaster you can’t steal my nick name use a diffrent one

  16. Poll what is your favorite reigon poll ends 2/21/10.

  17. I can’t seem to get the pokeradar to work. I have the national dex and stand in the tall grass but the echo of Rowan’s voice says blah blah blah time and place for everything but not now. Any tips on how to get it to work?

    • ok nonine how do you get a misdreavus without trading and how do you get a legendary pokemon egg like a azelf egg or articuno egg and who’s getting pokemon soulsilver or heartgold

  34. how would you get lugia in platinum and whats the best way to catch zapdos

    • There is no way you can get Lugia in Platinum without trading from the GBA games or cheats. For your other question, there is no easy way to catch Zapdos, but I suggest using your marking map to track it. Also, when you see it, try using moves like Spider Web to keep it from escaping. After that, all you need is pure luck to get it in a pokeball.

      Yes, the shiny pichu will be distributed from Jan. 30- Feb. 14 in gamestop stores across the US. This pichu will unlock a special in-game event in HGSS to get “Spiky-Eared Pichu.”

  36. What should i feed my pichu?

  37. how do you get legendarys in the bigining of the game

    • Salamence101 // January 30, 2010 at 10:50 am // Reply

      Ok, first of all, you don’t have to post a comment 5 times for it to be answered.

      When you ask that, do you mean how to get to them, or how to catch them?

    • U don’t cool cat unless u got a thing where u put cheats in. Its the unlimited master ball code

  38. do you know how toget lendengerys in the begining of the game

    • ashes monferno will evolve on episode 156 i think and then grotiles going to evolve and dawns gonna get a togepi and cindoquil and also ash is getting a gible

      • Ash gets a Gible to replace his Gliscor. If you’ve seen Pokemon GB episode 38, “An Egg Scramble,” you know at the end that Dawn’s pokemon egg hatches into a cyndaquil.

    pokemon soul silver and heart gold are coming out march 14

    • I am so excited about HS/SS! i am reserving it

    • pokemon genius // February 26, 2010 at 5:40 pm // Reply

      I’ve been waiting for this a long time. I had the old Gold and let me say it is my favorite game, even though the graphics were very bad. I beat every detail (Ho-oh, Lugia, and beat Red) and unfortunately a glitch ran through the cartridge and whenever I play, it starts a new file even if I save. Too bad the new ones don’t have Kanto, though….
