Hey there guys :D. I'm trying to catch a bold Roselia female, so far no luck but I did catch these(Pictures down below):

I'm getting kind of frustrated... it's like a 1 in 10 chance for a female Rosella, and after all those catches... none were bold. Any tips on speeding this process up?

*A way to make only roselia's appear?
*or only females?

Thanks guys.

Edit: Ohp... nevermind I'm not allowed to post pictures yet. But i have two PC boxes entirely full with roselia females.

Here's a link to my photobucket s214.beta.photobucket.com/user/Thor070/media/Roselias3.png (.html)

There's not a way to make only Roselia appear, but if you change your lead Pokemon to a male Pokemon with Cute Charm, it'll attract more females. Or a Synchronize lead with a bold nature. That'll attract Bold Pokemon. Depends on what you need more. The female or the Bold nature.

Cute Charm and Synchronize are both abilities, so you're going to have to choose one to be your lead. You can't have both. That's why I said you need to decide what's more important. The nature, or the gender. It'd be easier to find a male Cute Charm lead though. Clefairy isn't too hard to find, if I remember right.

Also, adding to what Sydian stated, Roselia has a 50-50 chance of being either male or female.

If you have been finding too many of a specific gender, you might just be unlucky. Like Sydian said, Clefairy would make a good Cute Charm lead to attract certain genders but be warned that some Clefairy have Magic Guard instead.

I recently arrived in Snowpoint City and tried to challenge the local gym. The trainer battles so far have been reasonably hard, even for a mixed team in the low 40s; but the gym itself (I'm playing Pearl BTW) is driving me up the proverbial wall. Even the hints on the GameFAQs site confuse me ("But I can't step up/go right/do whatever from here!") Could a more experienced player please give me a hand?

You really should consider looking up maps or video walkthroughs. It's hard to tell you exactly which way to go to get to the gym leader and it's really easy to look things like that up on YouTube, lol. Good luck. She's not really hard at all.

(Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.)
I'm playing Diamond for the first time and I only have five team members, and I'm about to go through Victory Road. I need to add one more pokemon to my team. My team is:
Murkrow - lv 45
Steelix - lv 45
Luxray - lv 46
Empoleon - lv 45
Kadabra - lv 45

I can't evolve my Kadabra yet, I don't have anyone to trade with. I was using Ponyta but then I learned that my rival also uses it and I don't like to have the same pokemon as my rival. Abomasnow was going to be my pick, but I'm not sure if it's strong enough. Help would be much appreciated, thanks.
Gotta collect 'em all! (seriously, I'm trying.)

There's a Dusk Stone in the Team Galactic base in Veilstone. I highly recommend getting that to evolve Murkrow. As for Kadabra, if you have wifi, you could get someone here on PC to trade and trade it back to you using the Quick Trade thread, or by going into the Trade Corner chat. There's a link in that section if you want to go for it. I recommend having Alakazam. It's a great Pokemon and it will help you a ton.

Anyway, as for a final party member, I don't recommend Abomasnow. He'll make it Hail and he's the only one on your team that's immune to it, so that might not be the best choice. If you do want a Grass type though, Roserade is pretty good. And since you started with Piplup, your rival won't have one. ;)

If you want more constructive help with your team, you should check out the in-game team help forum. You'll have to post movesets when you make a thread in there, but I think it'd be much more helpful than posting it here. :)

(NOTE TO MODERATORS: Not sure whether this follow-up belongs here or in Emulation, since I play Pearl on DeSmuME and hope that my attached savefile will shed some lignt on the problem. If you think this post needs moving, feel free to move it. Now, on to the question...)


By now, I've defeated all the lesser trainers in Snowpoint Gym and destroyed most of the snowballs. Even after watching the YouTube walkthrough 3-4 times, however, I still can't hit the last obstacles between me and Candice. If one of you could please look at my savefile and show me where to go, I'd appreciate that very much. Thank you again!

I understand your confusion, but again, emulation questions (in any state, shape or form) do not belong here. I will let this one slip since it's a follow up question, but next time please post it in the appropriate thread in Emulation.

As for your puzzle problem...it's in Part 2 of the video, and the commentator makes it pretty clear on how to solve the puzzle. If you're still having trouble you could always search other videos that may prove to be less ambiguous for you to understand.

What are the odds of hatching a shiny in Gen IV? Is there any way to influence them?

Your chances of hatching (or finding) a shiny are 1/8192. If you're breeding two Pokemon of different regions, for example a Japanese Ditto and an American Togekiss, the chances are 1/1639. Shinies are possible in gen IV, that being said.

Hey.

Was looking at Pokearth on Serebii, and saw that random trainers can have higher leveled Pokemon when re-battled with the Vs. Seeker. However, I've re-battled some trainers at different points in the story, and none of their levels have increased. How/when do their levels increase, as I think they'd be a good source of training for the E4 and Cynthia?
Currently doing:



Progress:

* Kanto: 8/8 Badges + Champion Defeated (Completed)
* Johto: 2/16 Badges

I wanna say they increase after you've beaten all 8 gyms, but if not, then it's definitely after the Elite Four.

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

Not totally sure, but since this more heavily involves PBR, a spin off game, if I were you, I'd ask in the Spin Off Q&A thread. You're more likely to have someone that knows answer your question there.

While I'm here though, I'm pretty sure that people would submit in their hacks with illegal moves and they went through fine, so I wouldn't imagine you having trouble with it. But the in the case of the formes, the game doesn't recognize them because the game was released before Platinum and HGSS. So I don't think it'd have a problem with the moves. But like I said, I'm not 100%.

I've spent literally the whole day trying to connect to the internet to trade from my HG game to Pearl. I've gotten the ds connected to the internet, and I've gotten an access point, but when I try to connect to the access point it says: "The access point's security settings are not supported by th Nintendo DS. For help, please visit support.nintendo.com"
What do I have to do? I went to the nintendo website but it's no help to me.

Perhaps your wifi isn't compatible with the Nintendo DS wifi. I think there's a wifi help thread in Technology and Internet, and it'd probably help you much more if you asked there. Wifi isn't my forte; wasn't able to use it til the end of gen IV.

Tbh, it's hard to get exp at any level in the game. All the wild pokemon are vastly underleveled and trainers aren't infinite sadly. Your best bet is to just kill random wild pokemon though.










As long as these struggles are aimless, we will all be standing still.

I would suggest battling the gym leader if you are able to. Even though you might lose, if you at least defeat one of their Pokemon, you can get a stack of experience.

Anyway, I'm going to move this into the 4th Gen Help thread where questions like these actually belong.

Moved.
