I'm a Treecko with Slam, Quick Attack, Pursuit & Giga Drain. My teammate is Piplup with Growl, Whirlpool, Drill PEck & Hydro Pump.
We're both level 49, btw.
You should train a bit... at least to level 55 so Roar of Time won't kill you that easily.

So I lost to Gonzap in Snagem hide out. I went back and he isn't there anymore. I've searched the internet and can't find out what to do, and some threads I've seen say it might be a glitch. I can't progress until I beat Gonzap. Does anyone know what to do? Has this happened to anyone else?

Pretty sure it's a glitch, but I think the item you need should be there regardless. This is Colosseum right? So you'd need the D-Disk from him at this point, if I'm not mistaken.

Yes, Colosseum. You know, I didn't look for an item or check my inventory. I'll try that.

Thanks for moving this. I didn't see the quick thread til after I posted. Sorry.

No big deal, hun! :) And anyway, I'm pretty sure that it is glitched where you can't rematch him, but you can still get the item. Should be the D-Disk, so if it's not in your bag, go back to the room he was in and check. I think it's a sparkly spot and not in a box, so yeah. Should be on a table.

    There are these Pokemon that sparkle when they get out of their Pokeball then shoots some kind of star above it and then the star explodes. I have encountered them in some Random Match-up battles and I was surprised to encounter them, What are they? They seem special just like N's Pokemon.

    If they had a different color than they normally do, then they are shiny Pokemon. :)

      but they sparkle differently from a shinies. If they are, in fact, shinies, why are they so different with their sparkle?

        I know what this is, if you use one of your own Pokemon in a Pokestar Studios Movie, and get a good ending, then it will have that sparkle.

          Am I noob at pokémon? I wouldn't say so. I could list tons and tons of pokémon, from first generation to last, I have excellent strategies, and everything typically works out for me in the games... at least story-wise.
          I have probably the worst luck with legendaries ever.

          The problem is that I have a lack of dedication with the games. I can't work hard enough or stay dedicated long enough to do any of the following:

          -Build my dream team
          -Find a shiny
          -Get a pokémon to Lv. 100
          -Catch every legendary of a region
          -or fill out a region dex.

          In fact, I think I've only ever beaten the elite four and champion all on my own once.

          Any tips or tricks? Trust me, I want to do all of the above but...

            To get a pokemon at lv 100 is easy if you do a solo run. My luxray was in the lv 80s after I did a solo ru, with it in platinum. A shiny is luck based in my opinion. For the rest I don't have any tips besides have a lot of patience and dedication.

              I have found and captured a shiny Deino in the wild in my black, but, when it comes to ruby, I'm the most unaccomplished guy in existence. Listen to this; After I got my master ball, I wasted it on what I think was a Koffing and ended up killing Groudon. Then, by elite four time, because of my lack of groudon, blaziken ended up as a lvl 93 before I FINALLY beat the game. PM me anyone who thinks I am the most unaccomplished guy in existence with ruby.

              I feel ya. I'm kind of the same way. I pretty much just play the games for the story, I could care less about the competitive aspects of the game. I can normally beat the elite 4 in about 15 hours average on the games, but after that I'm done. Eventually I'll restart and play it over again but the last time I got a pokemon to level 100 was when the original Silver version came out and back then the only pokemon I would ever level to 100 were Pikachu's.

              Only time I managed a level 100 team was on those online pokemon MMOs by indie developers, but that still took a ridiculous amount of time since all I wanted to do was chat with people.....Ok fine.....I payed people to level my pokemon up, but they were still mine!!

                By name their yours, but in essence they are truly part of whoever trained them. Lol.

                That being said, I've been having completion issues as well. Tbh, just tell yourself that if you won't do it, no one else will and you'll be missing out on those accomplishments. All those things are just dedication issues, which can be fixed with your own resolve.

                Just gotta pick up your game and do it.

                If it's a motivation issue then I think I have the perfect solution.
                Get together with a bunch of friends and sing Army running cadences! :D

                Cadence Caller: "When my left foot hits the ground. All I wanna hear is that WHAT sound!"
                Everyone: "WHAT!"
                CC: " 1 level, motivated."
                Everyone: "WHAT!"
                CC: "2 levels, dedicated."
                Everyone: "WHAT!"
                CC: "3 levels, never quit!"
                Everyone: "WHAT!"
                CC: "4 levels, not feelin' it"

                Then when you get up to the 90s.

                "When my Pikachu was 91, she did training just for fun.
                When My Pikachu was'a 92, she did training better than you.
                When my Pikachu was'a 93, she did training better than me.
                When my Pikachu was'a 94, she did training more and more
                When my Pikachu was'a 95, she did training just to stay alive"

                Your welcome.

                  Does someone know a website/page where I can find players of gen 3 games who are willing to give me their IP addresses so I can battle/trade with them using VBA?
                  If this question isn't legit just delete it.

                    I just tried out Pokemon Colloseum, and it is impossible. Early on in the game on Mt. Battle, you will battle against Cipher Admin Dakim, and one of his Pokémon is a Shadow Entei. Shadow Entei defeats the sole purpose of Shadow Pokémon. It is uncatchable, breaking free out of every ball you throw at it. Only a Master Ball can successfully snag this Shadow Pokémon. It's like the game encourages you to use a cheating device!

                    Entei has a low catch rate, I'm afraid. So it may take some time to catch, but it's not impossible. I have played that game tons of times and I catch Entei in most of my runs on the first try. Granted, my first time through, I didn't get him haha. I'm sure that since it's your first time playing, it seems difficult but really, it just takes some patience, like with catching legendaries in any game. :)

                    By that time in the game i'm fairly sure you can get a shadow swablu, I purify that and evolve it to Altaria, make sure it knows sing! Do some damage to Entei to get it to yellow HP, then put it to sleep. With a double battle you can throw a Pokeball and use Sing in the same turn, keeping Entei snoozing so he doesn't use faint himself with Shadow Rush, and it increases the catch rate. It might take a few tries but good luck!

                    (Why is "Shiny" in the thread's name?)

                    You must really have a bad luck. I caught it with no problems.
                    I caught every legendary dog in the first battles against Cipher admins.

                      Sorry if it says "shiny" instead of "shadow", I didn't notice that.

                      Unfortunately, I am unable to train Swablu to evolve it into an Altaria. I defeated every trainer there is at that point, and Swablu hasn't gotten enough experience to reach Level 35. How am I supposed to do any training?

                      You can rebattle the trainers in Pyrite Town. :) There's also the Pre-Gym if you haven't done that, in Phenac City. Also, merging this with the Q&A thread since it's question-y. Then we also won't have to deal with the inaccurate title, lol.

                      Edit: btw, Altaria ia an amazing Pokemon that you should keep on your permanent team! I'm really biased though lol

                        PokeCommunity...
                        I hadn't played Pokemon in about six years, but within the past year I went through and completed a game (sometimes two) in each generation. I want to eventually complete the national dex, but I was wondering what I should start doing next. I love going on a linear path and now I'm at a stand still
                        I'm honestly open to any and all suggestions!

                        Have you done Battle Tower/ Contests/Pokeathlon events? Maybe you could hand pick a team in Gen 3 and raise them up, getting as many ribbons for them as possible! Migrate them up to 4th and 5th Gen and do the same thing for them! (using newer pokemon would be fine too, of course) Hope you can come upwith something to freshen the game (you could also look in the Challenge section for ideas)

                          The Contests have not ever really sparked my interests, but the battle tower is a great idea. I'm also leaning towards breeding an eventual competitive team! Thanks for the suggestions
