Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Talon, once you get the egg, its stats are set. So, to get correct stats, you would have to bike all over again.

These are the steps to get decent ivs pretty quickly without the hassle of genders, traits, and natures.

When the guy is out with the egg, save in front of him.

Then, pick up the egg, and hatch it. Check the trait, gender, and nature. If its the one you like, check its stats. If the stats suck, reset, and you will be infront of the guy again. He will have that egg you hatched before its hatched, so you will know it has the gender and trait you want, so keep hatching the same egg over and over again until you get satisfactory ivs.

If its not the one you like, do this again.

This is awesome for breeding parents, but if you want the "perfect" pokemon, it is much better to just go around biking than this method because it will take a while for many of the longer eggs.

Also, anything with Magma Armour or w/e halves the amount of steps it takes for the egg to hatch.

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Yeah I finally have a jolly skorupi with snipe!

*Runs off to level him up to 40 in preparation for the 5th gym leader.*

I have a question for all those pokemon breeding fanatics out there: When I pulled out my two over-sexed skorupi from the day care I noticed they had crunch, poison strike, and some other fun abilities. Yet when I hatched my skorupi it lacked any of those fun abilities. Is there any way to ensure a Pokemon will have decent moves bred onto them if they didn't have them in the first place?

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

from what Iget is, those moves were taught to it while it was in daycare, I've had pokes used in there learn new moves but the baby will always get the moves the parents had when they were first were dropped off, if you redropped them off for more eggs the baby will have the moves that they've learnt.


Prgoress on my part, jsut got the 3rd badge and fly, i'm bloody thankful I can go fisit old palces that I had to miss due to not having HM's, Liking these poketech things a well, some nice little features in them ^^

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Pretty much exactly what Arnold said. Moves learned are shown after you take them out of the daycare. If they didn't have them while in the daycare, then the babies won't get them either.

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Oh ok, I just found it weird that my newest baby skorupi lacked crunch and cross poison. Anyways I am deciding who should be my final team member. My planned team so far is...

Final form of steel penguin, staraptor, garchomp, rhyperior, and dorapion. I was thinking of Magmortal (having thunderbolt, flamethrower, and will o wisp on the same pokemon can be very handy not to mention he looks pretty nifty), or some kind of rapid spinner like armaldo (I might give dorapion roar, so he suits my phaser roll.)

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Dorapion gets whirlwind, whcih is much better.

You have a bad ice weak and lack special defense. I'd suggest either going for a Blissey, because chansey is now catchable early in the game, or you could just go for magmortar. But it seems you want dp pokemon, so get whatever you want. If you want some help with competitive battling, just ask. I'll try to do my best to support.

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Oh wow didn't notice how bad my ice weak was until now. :P Maybe I'll drop garchomp (since I love the fact that rhyperior learns stone edge, earthquake, megahorn, and other attacks like that by himself.) So maybe I can replace garchomp with magmortal, and nab blissey for a special wall/healcleansingbot?

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Personally, isee no point in the water starter. It's role is mainly special tank with some nice resistances, but it is so badly outclassed by many water types. >>;;

Drapion and Rhyperior do nice tanking on the physical side, but having both being weak to Earthquake won't get you anywhere. And earthquake is the most common attack. So, maybe you might want to reconsider them. Unless you have Drapion for ch haxing, but it has pretty bad attacking types.

Stratarptor or however you say it is a solid pokemon, but doesn't really seem to suit the team all too much.

I'm not really sure how to help you right now, because it seems a Tyranitar will walk all over your pokemon. >>;;

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Rhyperiors trait solid rock seems to help him last a little bit longer during earthquake assaults, and I was thinking of nabbing a heracross or some fighting type for pesky rock and dark types like tyranitar. And I like the penguin due to all of his resistances to stuff (I know earthquake weak, but he has decent special resist like you said.)

*Grabs a assault rifle, and hunts down tyranitars.*

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Lawl, don't we all wish we could just shoot those tyranitars! *joins the fun*

Thing is, even with the Hard Rock trait, itll still take hefty damage from a CBtar, bringing your only real defense against it to a quick drop, and without a decent wish pass and rhyperior having no heal, itll be gamover when its gone.

I might want to suggest a gyarados over the water starter, due to the fact that it can tank defensivly really well, even with its rock weak. Its immunity to eq helps with the team alot and a physical water is sexy.

I might even want to suggest a Glion over Drapion or Rhyperior because of its superior defenses and its immunity again. It can also easily take down Heracrosses, so itll help you alot. Although having an ice weak. >>

A jirachi would be so great here lol. Meh. I'm tired, so I'll think of better suggestions then. But ya, just think over what Im trying to say.

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

For a fighting type I noticed Lucario and he seems very tempting to use (especially as a reversaler with immunity to stuff like sandstorm.) Would he help null any TTar weak?

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Yay just evolved my Riolu into Lucario. I just beat the six gym and went to Ion Island. Kinda need a ghost type but only looking for new Sinnoh Pokemon until I actually need them for the Elite Four. Right now my team is Gastrodon, Infernape, Starapador and Lucario all level 50 except Lucario which is level 31. And I learned to hate Combee, Hippo thingy and Stupid fighting frog. They all suck so much, need to kill them all especially Combee since its the only damn thing that comes from the trees. *Stabs them all* >>

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

I'm up to Snowpoint City and I'm taking my sweet time doing sidequests and stuff (Unowns, etc) before taking on the gym. My current team is a female Empoleon (Bismarck), male Floatzel (Torpedo), male Luxray (Regent), female Staraptor (Strahl), and male Rampardos (Bonehead), and I'm thinking of raising a Snowver as my sixth since I want some grass power on my team. I was going to go for Weavile, but I ended up catching an Adamant Sneasel so I'm saving him for later to train him for Wifi battles. =)

It was really hard choosing what to use since there's so many Pokes I like, but at least the online connectivity encourages me to train even after story mode. (I don't know anybody around here who plays Pokemon, so I had no reason to EV train or form teams for battle.) Not yet on Wifi since I can't get my DS Lite to connect to my wireless router (even after manually setting an IP, DNS, etc), but there's hotspots nearby and I'll see about getting a USB adapter.

But yeah. Story-wise, I love how they're playing up the Pokemon mythos (mostly why I like legendaries) even if D/P has TOO MANY legendaries. It's flavor text such as the history of the region and such that really immerses me in a game's setting. :D

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

I am at snowport city as well, and I'm fighting the ice gym leader now. Close Combating Istiqal ftw! I decided to raise a Lavitar (adamant or impish one), because Tyranitar is absurdley deadly plus sandstorm now raises rock pokemon special defense by 1.5x And I will use Garchomp instead of Rhyperior, and Azelf as my special sweeper.

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

D/P sounds like RuSa on steroids. o_o Sandstorm deals a fixed amount of HP damage to non-rock, non-ground, non-steel types, it erases Sunny Day or Rain Dance (or Hail, pfft), and now you're telling me it also ups rock-types' SpDef by 1.5x? CRAZY. A Rhyperior with Sandstorm basically has more than a 2x resistance (spec. 2.25x) to things he's supposed to be weak to. You're better off hitting him with things he's neutral to, for Christ's sake. CRAZY.

I got my copy of Pokemon Pearl yesterday. But my DS won't be here until Monday, and I have final exams on Tuesday and Thursday to prepare for, so, . BUT! Come the evening of May 3 ... my training will truly kick in. >D I even purchased my brandnew LinkSys wireless router just for the occasion ... especially since the official Nintendo dongle says it only supports Windows XP. :P (Silly lack of support for MacOSX.)

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Meh my DS WiFi has finally died or has been stolen ironically. Pfft people don't know it's bad manners to steal from thieves. >> Looks like if I want to do WiFi things now I'll have to go to a hotspot. ;.; Oh well. Anyway made it to the 7th gym and finished. I'll be training a while and then go to the sunny town for the final badge. Then after that I'll trade my pogeys over after I beat the elite four, will take another week probably since I only have 4 pogeys Lv. 50 and no other two pogeys for my other slots since I can't find a damn Munchlax in that stupid tree next to the windmill place. So close to getting my Dyoxys and Mew to trade over hopefully for other pogeys. Meh didn't even know there was a cloning trick on Emerald but too scared to try it on any of my pogeys before tranferring them over. >>;

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Is Flash still necessary for some parts of the game? Or did the switch to TM come with the added-bonus of not having to ever use Flash again if you don't want to?

*absolutely hated Flash ... worst HM ever! And yet one of the Original Five! And it lasted for three generations!*

If Defog is as bad as Flash, that'll be really disappointing to see. And arnold's makin' it sound like it's even worse than Flash ... as if that could even be possible. @[email protected]

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Hail has somewhat of a use now Talon. It boost blizzard's accuracy by 100%, so abomasnow can make good use of it (though abomasnow despite his bad ass appearence, is weak against a lot of things from my experiences using natal in japanese diamond.)

Re: Pokemon diamond and pearl.

Yeah, "Grass/Ice" has to rank up there in the list of all-time horrible type combinations as Gyarados' "Water/Flying" and Jumpluff's "Grass/Flying." I guess there is one bright side to it, though ... anybody who uses Abomasnow in serious battle can guarantee himself, "If I switch out to something that is resistant to fire, I will pwn" until people figure out that switching out to a fire-user to destroy Abomasnow is just too obvious.
