Sooner or later I know I'll come across all of them; for instance, Shinx appears via the Sinnoh Sound in SS, while headbutting trees causes Starly to make an appearance, but only in Pewter City. There may be the odd exclusive 4th Gen. around those games as well, so I will still have to look for some 4th gen. in particular that may not be in either Platinum or SS. 4th Gen. is one I really want to just fill up somehow.
I'm thinking that maybe I should try some of the older games as well, but I have so little free time right now, I'd rather play White, since I still enjoy it and have things to do, like E4 rematch + champion, and catching the seven sages (2 more to go).
Sadly I don't have anyone to play with over local wifi, so my White Forest is empty. But I do have a few from Dream World, like Shinx, Rhyhorn, Porygon.
Yup, I have already acquired a Thundurus. Tornadus was equally a ***** to catch. I quickly realized my Watchog had Mean Look and went for it, and bingo, got it. I'm reconsidering taking him to get Landorus, however; False Swipe seems more effective.
Maybe I'll try Kyurem with the Quick Ball first, if it could be that easy. Obviously I won't save before starting the battle, because I have nothing above Lv.71 right now. However, I did put my team together to face Landorus, so I might stick with going after it first. (And I have to have someone with Waterfall, so I've spent some time grinding with that one; would you believe Waterfall is its only attacking move? I'll have to look at my TMs, not worth spoiling a Heart Scale.)
As for me, I will ALWAYS be looking for trades. I still need the following from White:
Those in italics I already have; however, I can't import them until the games Emerald and Soul Silver (in some cases only Soul Silver) are finished. I'm sure I could easily catch extras and trade them to someone to import into Gen. V, trading them back to me, but let's just say if you thought that other trade session was a delicate dance, this would be insanity. It's doable if planned out, though, and I like planning things out. As a German chef on a food show once said, "I'm German. We like to tell people what to do." :D Of note, there may be a couple missing from other Routes, but exclusivity is rare in the 11-15 corridor. Just a couple. Then there's Minun and Illumise (notice the iutalics again).
Hehe, that was a bit of an emotional roller-coaster, wasn't it? Good thing you asked to be relocated after the first two failed trades, there weren't any more problems afterwards, well except for the little hiccups with the Clamperl And don't worry about the DeepSeaScale, consider it a gift for your b-day! And you got 3 eggs? That's some luck...
Can't believe we actually had seven trades, considering I only traded over GTS before. Thank you too, enjoy the Pokemon, and same, just ask if you're ever looking for someone to trade
I actually caught Kyurem in a Quick Ball, not sure if it was just my luck or if he's actually that easy to catch. I had some issues with Thundurus; I tried going after him with Clefable, put him to sleep with Sing, and he still fled. While sleeping. I didn't know roamers could flee while sleeping, so I needed a different strategy to keep him in battle. Which has Ariados with Spider Web. Then I switched to Clefable, put him to sleep, lowered his HP and finally caught him. For Landorus, you're going to need bot Thundurus and Tornadus, but you probably know that already
Whew, now that I'm home and my phone has had a slight recharge...the rest will charge this evening...
I had given the Clamperl the DeepSeaTooth because I only had one, so expecting to get out and in twice, I gave it the Tooth so I wouldn't get confused and accidentally give two Scales to them. LMAO Sorry to make you sacrifice one, but at the same time I know the Treasure Hunter can be goaded into spitting them out with a little patience (or luck, like with my three Lucky Eggs from him). I actually have three Scales that will sit unused, so I'll likely use them in a future trade if someone wants to evolve a Clamperl and do a two (or three) step trade with them in the future.
That was strange. I think my seating location at first had something to do with the problems (edge of the building) as I got other communication errors, but I did ask to be relocated and after the second disconnect things seemed to work (except I got communication errors when I tried to leave the trade, I had to reset the system and I came back to find you "busy" or "trading"). I was so worried at that point I might be walking off with your Milotic - had no plans to do that. :D Glad things picked up enough to work, and the second session with pleb had no errors at all; makes me wonder if the connection on your end was fussy today.
NEway, trades all done, cheers and thanks, and enjoy your new Milotic and all the rest! If you ever are looking for something else, I'll be continuing trading for what I can get, so feel free to peek in and inquire. Sorry I couldn't get a fresh catch Murkrow; they did not want to return ever since I caught that one, but I now have one of everything in the Shrine grass (evolutions in shaking grass aside, they count as the unevolved ones). I have three more to catch at Challenger's Cave, I still have to explore some of the grassy areas while hunting down Trainers, and then it's off to the Shrine again for Landorus and the Chasm to hunt down Kyurem. And then there's Keldeo at Gamestop, hopefully EB as well; I can always get a clone if all else fails. :D
