    Ok..... ;( Another question. I have a Lucario with an item, Focus Sash. Whenever I go take a challenge @ the Battle Tower (Multi) The Focus Sash ALWAYS DISAPPEARS! When I say disappear, I really mean Permanently. It just disappears out of nowhere and it doesn't come back! I can't waste to buy another every time since the incident happened to me 2 times in a row. Any suggestions?

    The Focus Sash is a single-use item, like a Berry. It only works if the Pokemon would be OHKOed at full health. If you're challenging a Battle facility, single-use items, like your Focus Sash and Berries, will be restored after every battle and after every 7-round challenge (10 rounds in Battle Hall).

        Try rubbing alcohol at least 91% with a cuetip. If that doesn't work then I'm afraid it's broken. I think it may work though because my Platinum has survived the washing machine. :3 BTW my question is can I catch shiny pokemon on the pokewalker?

        Last I heard - yes, but it's very unlikely. Being able to find them depends on your trainer's id and secret id (values assigned in the game when you start a game file from the beginning). Basically for most people you won't find one on the Pokewalker (0% chance), but some people can and have a very high chance of it (as in better than 1 in 50 or 100 if memory serves, somewhere in that ballpark). Catch is 'some people' means very little. There's more details about it somewhere I believe; when I have time I might try to refind that info.

        I have seen just the a picture of someone with a shiny from the Pokewalker, I don't recall if it was confirmed legit though.

          Speaking of the Pokewalker...may I ask a question on it?

          So, if you were to lose your Pokewalker and get a new one, you'd have to reset your Pokewalker data for the old one to use the new one, right? And if that were to happen, would your Watts and Routes disappear as well?

          Thanks!

          Yes, I believe all that data would be gone.

            Hey I just got Pokemon Ranger and I was wondering if I could transfer the Manaphy egg to Heart Gold or Soul Silver? I've tried google but there's nothing recent saying if I can or not, it only says D/P. HALP!

            I believe things only say DP because the ranger game had only been out when DP were the only main 4th gen games out. I don't think they would have been restricted to DP only though, so it *should* work with HGSS just fine.

            Not really game related, but 4th gen sprite related. Bulbapedia has overworld sprites, but not all the shiny ones (for whatever reason). Unless I've just totally missed them there, anyone know where I can find them? I'm annoyed that I have shiny Pokemon on certain teams and I can't show case it in my blog sidebar, lol. So help would be appreciated, thanks!

              I wouldn't say so. There are better Normal types, like Lickilicky. Or just better Pokemon in general, really. I've raised it before, and it was my worst party member. It fainted all the time. So I don't really recommend it personally.

                I am playing Diamond right now, and has a Budew in training. However, it seems like I have forgotten where to get the Soothe Bell. Can anyone tell me where it is? Thanks!

                You have to go to the Pokémon Mansion (the one owned by Mr. Backlot with the garden at the back) and it is given by the maid in the second room on the left of the entrance.

                  That far? Oh. I guess, I need to resort to the massage in Veilstone. Thank you!

                    To me, I think it's easier to put it in a sequence.
                    This is for Pokemon platinum:
                    1) Team Galactic has been cleared out of stark mountain
                    2) Heartan is not there
                    3) ?

                    Have you talked to the partner in the mountain back in her house? That might be a necessary event to trigger first with it.

                      Hmm... it must be some other obscure character to talk to or one part of that sidequest you didn't do or something... but I'm not sure if the only other relevant character bar Plasma people (Looker) is even skippable.

                      Hey, I noticed this thread and decided to ask something.

                      In Platinum, what was the point of Marley in the Victory Road? Just curious...

                        G'day everyone!

                        I've been trying to breed a pokémon with IVs at 31 across the board. I used the power items and bred a generation of five which all had max defence, and each had a maximum rating in one other stat.

                        Then I used power items for speed & special attack, and relied on the fact that both parents had max defence to give that to the next generation, so I should've had a generation with max defence, speed and special attack.

                        Anyway, when I got to what should've been 4 max stats out of six, I discovered one which didn't have a single IV at 31. Do you know why this wouldn't have worked? Is there a random factor I'm failing to account for?

                        Going to merge this with the help thread sticky in case someone better versed with breeding has something to add.

                        From memory though (and assuming this is HGSS as DPPt I don't believe have the breeding properties for the power items) they don't make the IV for that stat 31 - they just pass down the IV the Pokemon holding it has in that stat, so if they didn't have max speed/special attack then a non-perfect IV for the respective one would have been passed.

                        As for the defence not being passed, that's down to luck. Only three stats from the parents may be passed down in total, so it's up to chance.

                        No real point, I suppose, just another 'hey explore this area with a partner' game mechanic. That and afterwards you can battle her in the Fight area/battle with her in the battle tower, so there is some other benefits of going there I suppose besides the usual.

                          Ah, sorry, I was unclear. I had ensured that the stats being passed via a power item were rated at 31, as informed by the judge at the battle tower. ("It can't be better in that regard.")

                          The maximum of three stats being passed down seems pretty insurmountable, though. Can nothing be done for that?

                          Edit - and yes, it is HGSS.

                            Try the Quick Trade thread over in the Trade Corner section. This help thread is for questions rather than trades so you should have more luck there.
