Has anyone bought the Dream Radar from the eShop yet? It's this amazing app for 3DS users that lets you catch Pokemon with Dream World Abilities, and all three Therian Formes of the genies.

Anyway, I went into it pretty unaware of what was available, and I just saw this.

If you insert Pearl, Diamond, Platinum, HeartGold, or SoulSilver into your 3DS and boot up the app (after catching all Therian Forme genies) then the mascots from each game will be available - with their Dream World abilities.

Now I'm super excited to catch Landorus, I just caught Thundurus so I still have a ways to go, but yeah!

Does anyone else have this app and are you enjoying it as much as me? ;u;

stop reminding me about how much I need a 3DS No, I don't have it, due to a lack of a 3DS. I really want it though. :/
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

I have it. It's not as good as I thought it would be.
Once I get the therian forms of the weather trio, I'm probably never going to play it again.
My Chainsaw Meowth is currently missing! If you have a lead or think you know something, PLEASE PM ME! I am desperately searching, and I dread the possibility that I may never find him...
On a side note, if anybody can answer the following question right, then they get a mystery prize! *Must have a Gen V game to claim prize*
Question: What the heck did Jinora do in the finale?! I don't get it! I know 90% of you won't know what I'm talking about, but I need an answer!

I got it, and it's very much like encountering wild Pokemon in the game.

You have a couple that absolutely love you and are the most common things ever (I've encountered more Bronzor than anything), and you have a couple of rares, or uncommons that seem really rare (only found one Ralts so far).

Funny thing about this feature is, you can catch female Pokemon on it, which lets you breed in hidden abilities.

I'm still sad, they should make it so when you beat the main story, you should be able to catch hidden ability starters. That would make this an instant seller.

What I've seen in the DR is...
Porygon (finally got the Timid one, bred for the right ability)
Swablu (want to train up an Altaria, for the sole purpose of Cotton Guard and Dragon Dance)
Bronzor (your ability sooo bad! Stop spamming my spaces!)
Rotom (happy when I got it, sad when it turned out to be Calm, need dat Timid Rotom!)

Fortunately, the items allow for further gameplay.
I've gotten...
Moon Stone
Water Stone
Fire Stone
Shiny Stone
Max Revive
Red Shard
Blue Shard
Green Shard
Yellow Shard
Sacred Ash (reeeeally happy about this one, got two of them)

All in all, not a bad feature. Plus, it's finally a way to use the coins for the 3DS, never used them before.

All in all, give it a thumbs-up.

I just got it yesterday, and I just got Tornadus in its Therian Forme, and so far, besides the pokemon I already have, ie: Swablu, and Drifloom, I like it.

I haven't actually thought about getting this yet since it seemed like one of those annoying add-ons that I'd never use, but after reading dragonnathan's post maybe that's not true :o How does the encounter system actually work in this? And how does the battle system work? It seems great to be able to catch all these Pokémon with hidden abilities without having to connect to the stupid Dream World service so I might look into getting it if it seems fun, but right now I'm still very much on the fence haha.

I kinda want it, but I would need wifi to access the shop on my 3DS to buy it and I forgot our wifi password and my mom doesn't know where she put the paper with it written down. :( I'd get it if I could. idk how often I'd use it though really.

I bought this and finished it over three days...but then, that was because I wanted the low-level Legendaries on my Black 2 cart, and I wanted to move on with the game ASAP, so I was in a hurry. Landorus became a part of my team, and I was sorely tempted to use Giratina for a time. It was fun enough in its own way; strangely addicting, and fairly simple. I've not touched it since I captured the last of the Legendaries though; I'll probably delete it and re-download it at some stage so I can catch them all again...chances are I'll get White 2 at some stage.

I bought it as soon as I got the games. I used to use it whenever I could, but after I caught the Kami trio, and finished the Pokédex, it became pretty pointless. I still do use it sometimes though. I just hate how I look like an idiot trying to spin around in a chair trying to shoot the orbs.

I bought the Pokemon Radar App a week after I got Pokemon Black 2. The funny part was I kept complaining about how much I need the app, but I only used the app probably a couple of times until I got Tornadus in its Therian form. I plan to use it this week since I am off from college, but I keep forgetting about the app; thank you thread for reminding me about the app.

Do you like Pokemon dream radar? If you don't have it do you want it if you do than do you regret getting it? Do you think it was worth the money? Do you think there is anouf Pokemon? What would you do different if you made the game? What's your favorite thing about the game

I don't wanna see too many spoilers so I have tried to avoid reading too much of this thread.

All I seem to get is Sigilyph and Munna, it's like move over, I don't want you lol. 1 is enough!!!

But I did get á Tornadus and I loved it's new form

The new form of Tornadus is one of the thigns that pushed me to get B2 in the first place.

I love this game!!!

I got it a few days ago actually, together with the Pokedex 3D Pro, and I really love it, I mean, what's not to love about shooting beams at clouds and bring back items and Pokemon with their hidden ability into your save file? And the best part is that it's not just tapping the 3DS screen with your stylus, you actually get to shoot at stuff that seem scattered around your room, it's quite nifty. My boyfriend makes fun of me for running around the house shooting imaginary clouds, but that's okay, I can just point my console at him and pretend I'm shooting him in the head, hehe.

I already got Therian Tornadus, and I'm very close to unlocking Thundurus too. I don't have any gen 4 games, so I can't get those games' mascots, but I just discovered that there are special extensions that are unlocked by entering secret key combinations, and you can catch Beldum, Slowpoke and Hoothoot too.

I don't have any BW games, and I've been wondering how much use I would get out of it. Does anyone have an estimate on how much time it takes to run though it? It doesn't seem to have too large an amount of different kind of Pokemon, which is too bad. Then again, it is only 3 bucks, so...

I do enjoy the gameplay of stuff like FaceRaiders or DenpaMen, but I'm not sure I want to actually pay for it if it's only going to be like an hour.
