question about Breeding in the 3rd Gen. im very experienced in Breeding in the 4th gen. but i have been playing on 3rd Gen Leafgreen. the Breeding seems to be alot more difficult, or maybe Random is the word.

i was trying to Breed a Male Adamant Slowpoke. both Parents were Adament, Adamant Ditto and a Female Adamant Slowpoke. after filling 3 boxes ((90 slowpokes)) i only ended up with 2 Adamant Slowpokes and both were Female. no males !

i was even trying to use Hold items like an Everstone to better the chance of Transfering the Nature.

is Breeding in 3rd Gen more difficult or any Different from Breeding in the 4th gen ?

if someone could drop me a Link to which hold items effect breeding it would be much appreciated. thanx

Emerald breeding additions: http://serebii.net/emerald/breed.shtml

I don't think much changed in this aspect from gen III to IV, however. There's no way, as far as I know, to breed for a certain gender, though there is the Everstone trick for specific natures.

Diamond/Pearl's breeding additions: http://serebii.net/diamondpearl/breed.shtml

It states that the Emerald additions were left the same. The gender ratio of Slowpoke is 50:50 so I guess just keep trying, since everything else you're doing seems to be fine. You should eventually get a male. The gender ratio is just not falling into your favor I suppose, haha.

If there's anyone who can actually translate Japanese that would be cool, haha. I can read Hiragana, but, can't translate it. Katakana is really easy though, but, this is all Hiragana. It's the Old Man's dialogue as he's passed out from being drunk. I'm trying to find out what it says exactly so I have an accurate translation rather than the coffee excuse from the usual English Kanto games.

うい–っ! ひっく... まちやがれ
わしの はなしを きけ!

... こら!
いくな! と いっとろ–が!

Uiiii! Hikku... Machiyagare
Washi no hanashi wo kike!

...Kora!
Ikuna! To ittorouga!

So, since the word 'washi' is in there it has to do with an eagle.

Although I can't give you an exact translation, I believe that he cannot move because he had passed out from being drunk.

Perhaps a good Psychic type like Alakazam. If you can't trade to evolve Kadabra, Jynx or Mr. Mime are also decent. Hypno is okay, but the former two are better imo.

A flying type is always helpful (for flying and type-wise) so you could use Fearow, Pidgeot or Dodrio (they're all pretty good) if you want to use an interesting pokemon, you could try using Butterfree, it learns some helpful psychic type moves early on, and sleep powder + compound eyes + dream eater is a fun combo.

Although, your team COULD also benefit from a special defensive poke/fighting type, so Hitmonchan would be a good team member. Or you could go for a psychic type like Sydian suggested.

You could have a shot at flying n_n. If you're looking for a bird that's bulky but still pretty offensive,you can try Pidgeot. Or if you're someone who wants a Pokemon offensive and speedy,Fearow or Dodrio would help you out.

If you can trade Alakazam is beastly, it will help out in tough situations and is really diverse.Gengar wouldn't be a bad choice either if you can trade.

I'd agree with the posters before me and go for a Flying or Psychic-type so you can deal with Fighting-types.

Fearow and Pidgeot have sufficient Attack and Speed stats, and both are found early on.

Alakazam is a good choice for Psychic but if you can't trade, try Mr. Mime.

thanks for your suggestions guys
and I'm not getting kadabra because I can't trade to evolve it and I'm planning to teach lapras psyhic anyways (in my leafgreen run my kadabra was useless against E4 and lapras rocked with that psyhic). Maybe I'm getting a fearow or something ...

I'd recommend something along the lines of Return, Shadow Ball, Brick Break and Earthquake/Aerial Ace, to ensure good type coverage.

I like this good type coverage of Return, Shadow Ball, Brick Break and Earthquake/Aerial Ace. This will help a lot against the E4. To bad there is no other Ghost type moves available. Vigoroth Sp. Atk and Sp. Def is its lowest stats.

It's all fine. I went and checked through a bunch of different translations, took what made sense and went with it. I even refered to the shoddy Green translation since that was one of the only 'okay' translations they did. So, combining with my limited Japanese knowledge, and a bunch of translations. I came up with a decent adaptation. I originally asked since I wanted to put it in the FireRed hack I've been doing, a Challenge mode, HG/SS-esque style remake and making touch-ups on stuff. Even went and de-capitalized most of the game already. But, yes you're correct. He was very belligerent, haha.
Hacks I'm currently working on:

Well shadow ball shouldn't be a problem then! :D All ghost type moves were physical up to generation 4, so you're all good on that front. How would Special defense factor in to using shadow ball, might I ask?

I suggest maybe a dragonite (it's worth all the leveling and he's flying type and you don't have flying type jet) and since you don't have a water type I recommend getting lapras (best water pokemon imo in LF/FR). And also if you can't evolve kadabra I would rather go with mr.mime.

You will need a Water-type so you can use Surf through the game.

I'd recommend Staryu cos it gets good stats as a Starmie, with high Speed and Special Attack. All you need to evolve it is a Water Stone.

Give it a moveset of Surf, Thunderbolt, Psychic and Ice Beam and it can demolish a lot of things in it's track.

In 3rd gen, all that Waterfall has better than Surf is a higher flinch rate, so go with the more powerful Surf. All water moves are special remember. You should probably try and stick to physical moves like Earthquake though and use its high attack stat.

I'm not sure if this is in the right spot, but I have a question. I was hunting Raikou on my LG, but he used Roar, scared the crap out of my Pokemon, then escaped, and I was going to continue looking for him but when I looked at my Pokedex, it said Area Unknown. Can I find him again? If so, where, because it's area's unkknown now..? Has this happened to any of you? Is it a mean trick or is it a genuine coding glitch, or will he pop up again?
Feed this Pokemon a berry or suffer from guilt. >:3
