Any rumours on a remake of LG/FR etc for the DSi/DS? I have a DSi and can no longer play FireRed... the only reason i bought the DSi So now im stuck with all the Platinum pokemon, that i have even heard of! Help! Someone tell me there is a way to either get the original pokemon on my DSi (Platinum game) or that the game is going to be re-made at some point
I heard a rumour it will be available as a download for the DSi shop but.... meh.
Anyone know anything?

Alex

I've just continued playing my Pokemon game after taking a break for more than a year and I can't seem to remember what attribute does macho brace increase. Does it just increase your pokemon's attack or does it depend on its nature or the attacks it use? So far I've only used it on my Dodrio (since I started playing again 3 days ago) and the effects of the macho brace stopped somewhere around L60 (Can't remember if its L60 or not but somewhere near it) and it only increased my attack. So what are the effects of macho brace on your pokemon's stat increase?

I know Macho Brace cuts your speed, but by half? Then Machoke and Machamp must have extremely low speed... So theres no specific stat that Macho Brace raises eh?

^ not immediately at least. It's used to EV train your pokemon so you can maximize its potential. :P

A fair number of original pokemon are available in the fourth generation after getting the national dex, although it takes a lot of time and effort. Serebii and Bulbapedia might be helpful. You could also borrow an old DS from someone and transfer everything from Fire Red to Platinum through the Pal Park. And when Heart Gold and Soul Silver come out you can probably get most of the originals.

As for downloadable versions... A brief search brought up nothing at all, so until it's officially confirmed I wouldn't count on it.

Hopefully this helps.

In about a month I will be getting Pokemon Emerald, and already now I'm thinking about what I am going to do in the game. But I have a question. Does one always need the national dex to trade Kanto Pokemon, that aren't in the Hoenn dex, to Emerald? What I mean is, could I trade say a Ditto from my completed Sapphire game, to Emerald while at say the 4th gym? Or is the national dex always required, despite it being a Sapphire-to-Emerald trade?

You can trade it over no bother, it just won't show up in your dex.

Yes, but when you view the pokemons summary, it comes up with question marks.

You can find it in the underwater routes 124 & 126..
It's rare, so you'll have to have patience.

He probably doesn't have it in his Pokedex, since he's looking for it afterall. >:

There is a Thunderstone next to the Generator in New Mauville (surf on route 110 in case you don't know where that is; talk to Watson first).
Yellow Shard locations:
1. Route 124. If you head north and circle right from the Hunter's House, you
will find a place you can Dive. Follow this path to find a shard.
2. Route 126. From Sootopolis City, Surf left and then north as far as you can
go. You'll find some dark water you can Dive in. Do so and cross the small
square of dark ground, then surface on the other side. Head left and south
to find another patch of dark (along with Swimmer Nikki). Dive in this patch
and find three dark spots. The topmost of these three contains the shard.
3. Steal one from wild Chinchou.

I don't quite know if this has been asked yet, but where is the Exp. Share in Fire Red, I know it's one of the professor's aids, but I can never remember which one and where he is.

Ok I've just started playing Emerald again and I'm officially stuck. I've won my seventh badge chased team magma out of the space center and got dive as my reward. This is where I get stuck as I surf down route 128 use dive and enter the start of team aqua's hideout. When I try to enter there is a grunt blocking the entrance who says some thing like "I'd say your too early by about a trillion years... Speaking of team magma I hear they were spotted near Mossdeep..." But I've already done that bit so is there something in the middle I missed?

I've been looking at a walkthrough for Emerald, my primary game of choice, and in order to capture my favorite Pokemon, Registeel, I need to get a Relicath, which is a rare underwater Pokemon. The problem is that, when I go into underwater grass, I have to search 30 seconds to a minute just to find any Pokemon, much less the rare one I'm looking for. I know there's a lot of ways to repel wild Pokemon, but is there any way to attract them?

P.S. I'd ask for a trade, but I can't. And I'm not interested in discussing the reason in this particular thread.

In Emerald, several abilities were given secondary effects that affect wild pokemon encounter rates significantly.

It helps if on of your pokemon have the following abilities while you're searching: Pressure, and Arena Trap

It's also a good idea to stay away from using pokemon with the following ability while you're searching:
White Smoke

Thanks! I'll see if any of these work.

EDIT: I tried the arena trap, and it worked! I haven't found Relicanth yet, but I'm finding a lot more underwater battles, meaning it won't take me as long to find Relicanth. Thanks, Timbjerr.

i used to be a big fan and play pokemon silver on my gameboy color but after that i didnt play, im still a fan but havent played for years and i decided i want to play it, on my gameboy advance sp, which was given as a gift but never really played, i just wanted to ask what is the latest pokemon game out on SP?

the reason i stopped playing is cuz in silver, i got my typhosion past level 100 and i could beat nearly everyone with 1 if not 2 cut attacts, and gave up trying to catch the legendary pokemon cuz it seemed imposible to me
