You don't battle at Lake Acuity. \:

Lake Acuity is the lake west of Snowpoint city. You have to use Rock Climb to get to it. \:

Ah-ha!
Never mind, I spoke to the Galactic Grunt near the headquarters and I found looker.

Thank you very much for your help.

Also, I apologize for my mix up of the lake names.
I fought the people at those lakes, I simply got the names mixed up. XD

I have a question to ask. If I delete my save file with Spiky-Eared Pichu (as it can't be traded), can I get a new one with same Shiny Pichu I used to get it the first time or is it impossible to get another one when it's once obtained?

Anyone has Club Nintendo codes that you don't need? I want those.
If you have one code for me I can trade you my Explorers of Sky code as I can't put it because I have registered already one. (Registered my brother's game and now I can't register mine...) Someone have same thing? PM me.
I know there's nobody who wishes to do this xD
I'm talking about Club Nintendo of Europe.

It should be possible methinks - the only case doing that may not work is with the Celebi iirc.

Two questions. If I have two unused wondercards saved to Soul Silver game (both of which I have not picked up from the delivery man), would I be able to use them once I restart my game?

Can you sync a single Pokéwalker to two games without losing the progress (accumulated watts) made on the original?

For example, my Pokéwalker is synced to Heart Gold. I would like to sync it to a Soul Silver playthrough I'm starting, yet I don't want to lose my accumulated step and watt count in Heart Gold. Is that possible?

I think wondercards would be erased when you start a new game file unused or not... but I never tried such a thing.

I don't think you can sync the same Pokewalker to a different game without having to start over as well, as it has to store data for one specific game at a time - it shouldn't have the capacity to have multiple file compatibility.

Yes, wonder cards will be deleted.

No, you mat not use a single Pokewalker for two different games (if you delete your save file, you must reset the Pokewalker).

That's unfortunate about the wonder cards. I would like to clarify about the Pokéwalker question though. When you reset your Pokéwalker, does it reset your in-game step/watt count?

Yep, possible. I traded my torterra from my platinum to my soul silver since I had trouble with my first E4 run during my second playthrough. Only thing is that instead of showing a pokedex number in the pokemon's status, it just shows a few question marks.

Obviously, it was platinum not pearl, but it should work either way.

You can trade any 1st-4th gen Pokemon from the 4th gen games to HGSS before you get the national dex - can be more than Johto/Kanto Pokemon. Its data just won't be updated in HGSS until you get the National dex.

But I went to the Union Room with a friend's DS (the very first model) with Soul Silver and my 3DS with Pearl in it, and they didn't connect. Is that the issue?

That shouldn't change anything. Maybe one of the games aren't legit or there's dust or somthing stopping it. Certainly the DS should communicate just fine with the 3DS; I've tried so myself.

Will that's kinda hard to say. Do you have any idea what Pokemon you want to breed? You haven't got much of a choice since the only breed-able flying-types to get those moves are Tailow, Murkrow and Skarmory.

Some people consider the offspring a hack; but not many.

It is considered legit in terms of legit checking programs, though.

Probably because someone informed them. \: All I know is that they come out legit because I've done it myself in Gen IV.

I'd like to add to this that while the offspring may be considered legit. Purposefully breeding using hacked parents is strongly looked down upon. If you know the parents are hacked, I highly suggest you don't use them to breed stuff.
