Yes as you could trade with X and Y with Soul Silver, I would also recommend you to get it. That will help you spend time till X and Y and you could be able to play with your Soul Silver team in Kalos too. Imagine seeing Ampharos follow you in Soul Silver and then in X and Y , it could become a Dragon type as well or you could ride on it too maybe.

In Diamond, I KO'd Mesprit and lost the opportunity to catch it. I googled around and saw that Legendaries respawn after you defeat the E4 and the champion, but Mesprit still doesn't respawn after I beat them many times. Any help? or is it just a misconception and I lost Mesprit forever?

Sorry, but yes. Only in Platinum do they respawn. =(

Are your cartridges being recognized by your DS? (you can play your games on your DS)
Yes the gameboy advance Fire red is recognized on my DS there is more then 6 in the box but it just wont show migrate on the options in the main menu and its in Kanto

I think you should add both of them and remove Buneary in your team. Buneary is cute but it's battling in platinum which will help you complete the game

Hello guys, I would like to ask questions!

When are the Natures and IVs of Johto legendary trio generated?
Is it upon during the Burnt Tower event in main plot, like in similar fashion to Cresselia in Gen IV?
If so, is Suicine's generated along with Entei and Raikou?

Some legendaries like Suicune and Giratina will reappear again in Burnt Tower and that creepy cave respectively after you defeated them on first try. So the question is, will their IVs and Natures get reset during this second attempt?

Hi guys, yesterday I got Pokemon yellow (finally, sigh). And I planning to stick to it for a while, however, I'm not sure what to play afterwards!
I am planning to play all generations from the beginning. I am afraid that if I go though Kanto now, and then Kanto and Johto in Crystal, Soul Silver will feel boring repetitive and I won't be able to enjoy it, not the story or graphics. Since I will already know everything that's going to happen. (Or at least most of it). So should I skip the Crystal?
My playing order was supposed to be:
Yellow-Crystal-FireRed-Emerald-SoulSilver-Platinum-White-White2-X

But now I am not sure whether I should skip the Crystal(And maybe firered(?)) and just return to them (much) later when nostalgia kicks in?

If you guys played all of these games and you can suggest a playing order, feel free to! :D

My suggestion is scramble the orders, don't mind to much about the orders of era!
I'm actually replaying Gen III to Gen V as countdown for the new Pokemon games in the near future...
This is my order DP > HGSS > RS > BW1 > Pt > BW2.

Nice order. I haven't played a usual Pokemon game for a reaaaaly long time so I figured I wanted to play the older games first.
I'm playing Yellow right now and really am enjoying it, but I don't know if I'll enjoy Kanto and johto as much after roaming through it for the third time. Soul Silver seems so good, I just don't want to ruin the experience by knowing everything in advance and by being fed up with those two regions. Bit weird, I know lol xD

If you'd like to keep your gaming journey fresh and the least repetitive, then I'd suggest: Yellow -> RSE -> FRLG -> DPPt -> BW -> B2W2 -> HGSS. But that would be just my personal preference. I'd definitely refrain from playing through Kanto in close sequence, so perhaps leave HGSS last and have BW and B2W2 in sequence. (Plus, you'd be able to transition smoothly from the events of BW to B2W2, thus making the storyline more enjoyable.) In all honesty, it's up to you what order you'd like to play your games in. As long you have fun then that's the main thing. :)

Anyway, quick questions belong in the Fourth Gen Help Thread so I'll chuck this over there.

What do you mean by Pokechecker. The answer is probably no. But i'll look into it for you.


and @JayTheKing , i do belive that once you have encountered the entei and raikou in the burnt tower, they will always have the same nature. makes sense, cause theyre the same pokemon always on the move.

Hello guys, I have to re-post my questions, because a thread was moved here...
Thus my question was covered by it.
  1. When are the Natures and IVs of Johto legendary trio generated? Is it during the Burnt Tower event in main plot, in similar fashion to Cresselia in Gen IV?
  2. If so, is Suicine's IV/Nature generated along with Entei and Raikou?
  3. Some legendaries like Suicune and Giratina will reappear again in Burnt Tower and Turnback Cave respectively, after you defeated them on first try. Will their IVs and Natures get re-generate during this second attempt?

1. The IVs and natures of Raikou and Entei are generated as soon as they leave the Burned Tower.
2. Regarding Suicune, it doesn't go through the IV and nature generation that Raikou and Entei do; it's a stationary Pokemon in Kanto, so its IVs and nature are soft-resettable.
3. Yes, their IVs and natures will be soft-resettable at the second attempt around.

If memory serves right you have to meet Mr.Pokemon the odd man(aka Mystery Egg man) that lives past Cherrygrove in his own house.

I'm new to these forums, but I'm pretty sure you've heard this story before: I bought two games, Pokemon Diamond and Platinum, off of ebay in used condition, and I'm wondering if my games are fakes or not. I was pretty convinced they were real when I bought them, but something happened that made me think.

The two games were sold as a bundle. Only a few hours after I paid for the two games I received an email from ebay that they had removed the offer from their website, claiming it violated either their policy or someone's copyright. They told me that if I had already paid for the items, I should wait 10 days and if I still hadn't received them I could get my money back from them. Naturally, I sent the person selling them an email asking why the item was removed. The seller contacted me the next day, saying it was because ebay thought he was using the pictures of another seller.

Today I received the two games in the mail. They were sent from the UK (I live in the Netherlands) and arrived after only a few days. Awesome. I took them out and compared them to the only other 4th generation game I own, Soul Silver. A few things immediately stood out to my now sceptic mind:

  • The game serial number on the front is USA, and not EUR.
  • The cartridges are dark grey, opposed to my Soul Silver cartridge which is black.
  • On the back of my Soul Silver cartridge, the Nintendo logo and the line below it (NTR-031. PAT.PEND.) are in dark black ink. On the back of Platinum and Diamond, they are a darker grey than their cartridge and appear to have been 'engraved' into the cartridge.
  • The serial numbers on the back of the Platinum and Diamond cartridges are in a darker ink and can easily be read when I tilt them. The serial number on the back of Soul Silver turns 'invisible' when I tilt the cartridge at a certain angle.
Now I'm 99% sure my Soul Silver game is legitimate: I bought it when it came out from my country's #1 online store. But I have no experience with the new Generation other than Soul Silver, and no experience at all with games from other regions. I'm wondering if they're real. Can anyone help me determine that, so perhaps I can try to get my money back if they're not?

I've added some pictures as attachments so you can see what I'm talking about.

Any help would be awesome!

I need to do a little more searching and checking when I get back home for this, but I'll go ahead and tell you that it's normal for Diamond and Platinum to be gray cartridges as opposed to black. They started making them black when HGSS came out, so that's nothing to worry about. I'll try to come back to this when I get home and help you further, unless someone beats me to it haha.

Thanks for the help, I really need it. I'm glad that the cartridges being grey is a good thing!

I have an American version of Diamond and a European version of Pearl (I live in England, but I bought an imported version of Diamond from a local game shop when it first came out, Pearl I got about a year later from another game shop) I've compared my American Diamond to yours and it looks like yours are legitimate. Also, what Sydian said too, Pearl and Diamond are supposed to have grey cartridges while SS is black

@Sonatron: that's good to hear! Just in case, are the markings on the back of your American cartridge the same as on my Platinum cartridge?

@pokemoner2500: I haven't really played it yet. The GameFreak logo does seem to appear rather slow, and the when I press start on the title screen it goes to New Game immediately. Is that normal? I have no game other than Soul Silver to compare it to.
