May I direct your attention to this:

If you can't figure out what this refers to it's how Magneton evolves into Magnezone, and how Nosepass evolves into Probopass.

So, what does everyone think about this?

Hmmm...Interesting....
I think it was maybe a reference to the Red Gyrados and how they forced magikarps to evolve by signals and radio waves but it may have also been a spoiler :\
Who knows XD

That's not foreshadowing, that's backshadowing (or whatever the word is).

Magikarp in the Lake of Rage were forced to evolved (and thus did so into Red Gyarados) by magnetic and radio waves from the Radio Tower.

Was that in the TR hideout? Man, I missed that..xD

For Nosepass - Probass and Magneton - Magnezone, it depends on the magnetic field on Mt. Coronet, right?

Wait, now we're talking about waves? xD

Mm...the shiny Magikarp evolves into Red Gyrados with radio waves, not magnetic waves.

But aren't radio waves part the the electromagnetic spectrum? Which means magnetic waves are part of radio waves?

Not as scientific as a few years ago, xD, don't mind me...xD

Interesting, did you run by this by coincidence, or were you looking for it? I am not sure if it deals with Sinnoh, but it IS a possibility...

I've noticed several things like that in Fire Red, it's obviously NOT a reference to D/P, but the johto games to give those who Played G/S/C something to remember.

For example one of Oaks aide comment about him having a Radio show "soon" which he did during the G/S/C.

They're just "plot consistency" hints to help explain the fact the Johto games DID indeed follow on from Red & Blue.
Also, it could be foreshadowing the Johto remakes on DS, which D/P well and truly does to an annoying degree.

D/P foreshadowing would be something relevant like mention of the sinnoh region, Prof. Rowan etc.

I think this is more likely a reference to D/P than G/S/C. The waves used to evolve Magikarp were always called Radio waves, not electromagnetic waves. And yes, I know that Radio wasves are electromagnetic waves. But the wording seems more similar to D/P than to G/S/C

Yes, I did just happen to find this by coincidence. The pic is in the Rocket Warehouse on Five Island. Now that I think about, it might be a reference to the Lake of Rage incident in GSC, and they just said the wrong thing, but........ Magnetic waves = Magnezone & Probopass!

Anyone else have an opinion on this?

I don't really know, it just seems too vague to say it's hinting at D/P, I mean can anyone honestly think "Oh wow they're going to make games called "Diamond & Pearl" set in the Sinnoh region, just from that magnetic wave thing?

I think people are thinking too deep about this when it probably does not even mean anything.
I just think, if it's a reference to anything it would be the Johto games.

I actually think it may be the other way around, that the guys developing D/P/P names the evolution waves "electromagnetic" basing on that line.

Or maybe they aren't related at all, something also very likely.

These lines undoubtely reference the Lake of Rage happening in G/S/C.

Or maybe it backshadows and foreshadows? That would be cool.

Oh, and radio waves are part of the electromagnetic spectrum, meaning they're electromagnetic waves too, sort of. :\

Yeah. I think they're different frequencies...or is it wavelengths?

Anyway I think its just backshadowing.(?) The Nintendo guys were probably like, "Hey, we need a new way to evolve these guys that's new and different...how about leveling them up in Mount Coronet?" and then they just came up with the "electro-magnetic waves" thing after.

It might not be about the magikarp in Gold and Silver, but that doesn't mean it has to do with Diamond and Pearl... I mean, did Team Galactic even have anything to do *at all* with Probopass and Magnezone?
