In Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, what level should my pokemon be for mount battle area 10?
What strategies should I use to defeat the leader?
If you have the right movesets on your team, 60 or late 50 is pretty enough.
I remember going there with 60s and it was good enough =)
Be careful of legendaries, though They may surprise you =)

Ask in the Spin Offs Q&A thread. You'd get better help there.

I went through Mt Battle in XD using what I call "Gen 1" strategy.

Basically, I only used a Lugia and a Dragonite, both of them had Earthquake (as well as a few other moves that would take care of flying Pokémon). Since they themselves are flying they don't harm each other with it. So I just spammed Earthquake turn after turn, and occasionally used Hydro Pump, Psycho Boost, Hyper Beam etc to take down flyers. The first time I attempted to get from Area 1 to 10 (to get my Gen 2 starters) , I lost in early Area 10, but the second time I succeeded. Just like in Gen 1, Earthquake owned most of my opponents :D .

The champion is a different story though. Double Earthquake is a must if you want to get rid of his Slaking as quickly as possible (and believe me, you'll want to) , but the Lati@s (he has both) and his Salamence will give you trouble.

I need help with something. I finally went through the whole Pokemon Ranger Shadows of Almia. I did all the missions, captured all Pokemon. Now I downloaded and played missions with Dialga and Palkia...now what? D: Why can't I get all the other missions, four of them. How do I obtain them?

The other downloadable missions were for a limited time only, sorry.

Damn, I guess I got through whole game. After Regigigas, capture arena, and extra missions there is nothing else really to do besides getting your capturer to lvl. 100, right?

Unfortunately, yes. You can only really restart and play again.

Poor Lugia... getting purified :D But yeah, this is good strategy that fails against Flying types and Levitate types... And as you mentioned, Battle Master has both of that... :D
I think more diverse strategy should be applied here :D

Hi everyone! I am a long time viewer of the Pokemon anime, but new to the games. I have a question concerning the TMs (technical machines), as I am working on converting Pokemon to the Hero System RPG. On the page for Bulbasaur's First Generation learnset on the Pokemon Wikia, it says that Bulbasuar can only use certain TMs (TMs 3,6,8,9,10,20,21,22,31,32,33,34,44,50) and HM1. So, I assume it does not use the others for a Bulbasaur and that other pokemon are limited as to what they can learn as well? The ones that Bulbasaur can use are normal, grass, poison, and psychic moves... I guess it makes sense that a grass/poison pokemon can't learn fire or steel moves...

Yes, there are certain TMs that each Pokemon can and cannot learn.

Kind of a strange question if you ask me, but anyway: Meowth is based on Satoshi Tajiri's pet cat according to Junichi Masuda. In general terms, it's based on the Maneki Neko, the lucky/beckoning cat of Japanese myth.

I am still working on my Hero System translation, and my current question is this... I am working on the Spearow and Fearow and I am wondering, is there such a thing as a level 1 Fearow? Spearows evolve to Fearows at level 20 if you allow them to, but do mama Fearows give birth to baby Fearows, or are thier babies Spearow and there are no Fearows until the baby Spearows hit level 20? I assume the answer to this will apply to all other pokemon as well.

Thanks in advance!

This thread is really aimed at questions about the games, not Pokemon themselves. But anyway, Pokemon lay eggs...you can read about breeding here: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Breeding

Ok, thank you... I will look for an alternate thread for my questions. I asked here because I was interested in how it worked in relation to the games, as opposed to the anime that I am more familiar with.

According to Bulbapedia, Pokemon Colosseum is a main game. Where does it fit into the timeline?

Unfortunately, that's probably up to a bunch of debates. We had a timeline thread in PGC, but it got really messy because people get really heated in there. I suppose you could search for that thread and see what was said and determine it for yourself. I don't recommend making another one though, because they always tend to go nuts.

As far as I know, especially after gen V, there isn't a very clear timeline anymore like there used to be. Pokemon has become the new Zelda, but a lot less convoluted, haha.

I believe that's mistake on bulbapedia's side...
Colosseum should be treated as spin-off... I was explaining reasons in a different thread...
But as Syd said, we don't really have clear timeline (beside the BW - B2W2)...

I have another question. I just finished the main story of Pokemon Ranger: Explorers of Darkness.
I loved it (tho I loved the red rescue team's end bit better), and I just noticed that Explorers of Sky has some stuff in it that Time and Darkness do not. So my question is, if someone who played both t/d and S, if it's worth getting Explorers of time, even after I finish the Darkness (including the post-game story. I would like to get it, but only if it includes a lot of extra stuff.

Also, is there any significant differences between Darkness and Time?
Thanks

When it comes to Pokemon Battle Revolution, when importing your Pokemon from HGSS do things such as exclusive moves (egg/tutor) or event moves go in the game> I understand I had a problem in Plat when I tried to put in some of the Pokemon in their exclusive forms and what not.

Darkrai with Special Rend
Xatu with Signal Beam
Togepi with Extrasenory
for example

Well... I strongly believe that Sky is the best of the MDs.
I mean... it has special episodes that give out more information about the characters...
I might spoil you but you will see what happens with Grovyle

Nope. Only some Pokemon differences.
