Pokemon Platinum

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.

  16. can you catch a shiny pichu then trade to hg/ss to get the noched eared pichu

    • pokemon409 // April 18, 2010 at 8:15 am // Reply

      yes u can. actually, to get a spikey eared pichu, you had to go to gamestop to get a PCP (pikachu colored pichu). then when u got heartgold or soulsilver you would trade your PCP to it. then u went to the shrine in ilex forest and you would find a pichu there. make sure to have room in your party for it. but sadly, the event has already passed.

    OK.i know this is not about platinum but on pokemon soulsilver I cannot get the medicine for jasmine`s Ampharos in cianwood city pharmacy.Can you you please comment for me if you have any idea what the heck is going on?

    • First you have to climb the light house then you go to cianwood pharmacy city if that doesnt work beat the gym first i think it is so hard to remember i already beat elite four all 16 gyms and red

    • I had the same problem… You have to talk to Jasmine at the top of the Lighthouse before being able to get the SecretPotion from Cianwood City… When you get to the third floor, I believe, there is an opening that leads you on a path with a few trainers to Jasmine and the Light room of the Olivine Lighthouse.

    • ok I dont have SoulSilver but I had crystal(part of the original series)and if its like the old one surf to Cianwood city

    • pokemon409 // April 11, 2010 at 8:50 am // Reply

      u have to find a window that you jump out of. Then u go through the door. Keep going up. Then talk to Jasmine. Then u go to the pharmacy.

    • When you are abl to reach jasmin and talk go to cianwood farmacy gives seacret potion

    has anyone got info on the celibi event?please comment

  36. how do you get into the snowpoint city temple

  37. I’m at the part in the game where Team Rocket takes over Goldenrod.(They’re even blocking the entrance to the GTS!!!) I’m trying to get rid of them as soon as possible. Of course my rival has to battle me really inconveniently. I’m going to try to beat them today and earn my GTS rights back!
    P.S. at the end of the last comment I meant to spell beginning.

  38. im stiuck in veilstone city and i really need to get to suny shore city.

    Heartgold and Soulsilver are GREAT. I agree with Groudon, the new features are AMAZING. I especially like the Poke’athlon.

  40. I know I don’t post on BL often anymore, but I think that the pokewalker is really great! I also think the GTS is awesome!(although most people ask for stuff way better than what they’re offering.)
    P.S. If you have Wi-Fi, There’s a Mystery Gift event to get a pokewalker course called Yellow Forest. This course has only pikachu, but some of them know surf and even fly!!
    This event will take place in the U.S. at the bedinning of April.

    I ev trained one of my three jirachi’s

  42. I got Soul Silver on Sunday and its great! I’ve already beat the Elite Four and now I get to go to Kanto. If you haven’t already purchased the games, I suggest that you do. Soul Silver is the greatest Pokemon game I’ve ever played.

    • I got SoulSilver too. I have all 8 badges, got through Victory Road (which is SOOOOO easy), but have not beaten the Elite Four. In my original Gold, I whooped the Elite 4 with my Typhlosion, and I plan on doing it again. I have an excellent strategy with my Level 53 Typhlosion and trying to only use Blast Burn and maybe Flamethrower once or twice and replenishing the PP with some ethers and max ethers, but the plan needs perfecting.

    • HAve you beat red i have

    jirachi is good yet bad. also, i cant belive its time for HG/SS to come out. question 1# how do you get to the top of MT.Cornet after setting the legendary trio free? question 2# how do you get to Sunnyshore city? question 3# how do you get Pal Park to open? ive seen it before, but some construction workers are blocking the entrance. thank u.

    • soulsilvermaster // April 4, 2010 at 12:38 pm // Reply

      for question 1 ahhh i have no idea even though i got there but thats cause i have action replay.Anyway i have no idea what top you are talking about but that is the answer for the one near (the city where the first gym leader is)and for question 2 you have to go past the distortion world and get GIRATINA.And last but not least for question 3 get the national dex OR beat the elite 4.I am not sure which one.

    • # 3 beat elite four and get national dex i think

    • To get to pal park you have to get the national pokedex and have a GBA game in the second slot

    you might think i’m crazy but I got the pichu without going to gamestop p.s I am canceling the poll also I might get jirachi.
