Hey, i'm trying to get the paintings, and even though I beat the master rank contest, i just can't seem to get the heart meeter for the apeals all the way up. Can someone help me with the best contest moves and combos for each catagory?

Well, if you don't already know, you need to have a certain amount of stars/hearts (I can't remember which ones or the quantities :D) in the final. Here were the ones that won me the Master Rank:

Milotic - Dive, Surf, Dive, Surf, Hydro Pump - Blue Scarf - Beauty
Regice - Curse, Superpower, Curse, Superpower, Explosion - Yellow Scarf - Tough
Wingull - Water Sport, Water Gun, Water Sport, Water Gun, Growl - Pink Scarf - Cute

I can't remember the rest, but I used a Swellow for the Cool, and a Dusclops for the Smart...

Just try something and try doing it on you're own..

I would use milotic If i could find another feebas.

Ok, so those combos will get me the paintings for the Lilycove Museum?

All you have to do is get 5 or more hearts during your appeals. I'm not talking about the hearts at the very end where it fills up your bar. You could get 5+ hearts during an appeal and lose it all to another jamming move and you would still get the picture. BTW: I heard that you have to talk to the artist inside the museum and the art dealer (green guy outside museum) before doing the Master ranks to get the painting, but I'm not sure since I always talk to them.

Here are the moves that I've used so far.

Regirock-Tough: Superpower, Curse, Ancient Power, Earthquake
Curse first turn to make you go last next turn, then use Superpower since it works better when last and since SP makes you more easily jammed, going last won't matter, and if that efect carries over to next turn, chances are you'll go first with the hearts you just gained and you could just use Ancientpower to 'calm down'.

Xatu-Smart: Psychic, Future Sight, Hidden Power, Fly
Fly is useless, that wa sjsut a filler. Psychic and Sight is a combo.

which comes first in the combo, psychic or future sight?

Combos can be used in any order, I believe. Surf and Dive is also another combo. So's Water Sport and Mud Sport. Castform has one too: Icy Wind and Hail.

No... there is an order. Some work both ways, but if you take the combo:

Dragonbreath, Dragon Claw

You can't have it the other way round, for some stupid reason... but that's the life of the Pokemon contests...


May 12th, 2004, 7:54 AM
Oh. The combos I listed works both ways.

i used medicham in the master rank.

medicham:timid:ice punch, detect, fire punch, hi jump kick.
detect is useless. fire punch then ice punch then do it again. last its hi jump kick to get hi points.

how do u get the scarfs?

May 17th, 2004, 4:18 PM
yeh dude, medicham- icepunch, thunderpunch, and firepunch...learn them all at the heartscale guy. and then go and win some contest... ice punch then the other and u get a combo for them... works awesome, i beat two contest sectiions with it.

where do i get scarfs....

May 20th, 2004, 11:17 AM
yer where do you get the scarfs from?

May 20th, 2004, 11:47 AM
like that guy up there said, use combo moves and um...try equiping the pokemon with those scarf things you got when you visit the pokemon fan club

like you know for feebas maxing it's beauty gets you milotic but if you take it to the fanclub with max beauty you'll get a blue scarf that's supposed to raise it's beauty even more in contests

the fanclub's in slateport if you're wondering.

May 20th, 2004, 12:21 PM
yer i have a golbat with full beauty and i didn't get a blue scarf

May 20th, 2004, 1:32 PM
yea i also brought my maxed molitic and didnt get the blue scarf.

May 21st, 2004, 7:57 AM
sometimes it looks maxed, but it isn't.
