Edit: btw, Altaria ia an amazing Pokemon that you should keep on your permanent team! I'm really biased though lol
Altaria is definitely amazing, no bias required I swapped one from a GBA Game and had two or maybe even 3 high levelled ones in total... But uh, you could also vs the Pyrite Colosseum a few times, get yourself some nice money and TM's in addition to experience! Don't forget those annoying trainers in the dilapidated building with the "Off Limits" elevator

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?
Do you have Umbreon?
Toxic works like a charm as well.

    Why is every flying type a dual type? Why can't a Pokemon just be flying, anyone? Is it just a standard to put normal next to flying.

    Generation 5 did introduce a pure Flying-type Pokemon, the Legendary Pokemon Tornadus. And that's not even counting Sky Plate Arceus. But yeah most Flying-types often get paired with another type, with Normal, Water and Bug among the most common.

        Hey everybody, the first spinoff game I've played was Red Rescue Team, I didn't like it because of its difficult controls & not so cool graphics, but I kinda liked the story...
        I then saw screenshots of Gates To Infinity & I liked the graphics a lot, so...
        Do you think Gates To Infinity might be the one for me? (please list pros & cons

          Well I haven't played Pokemon since Emerald. I want to try out the new generations but I don't want to go through every single game. Could somebody lay out the best games to play throughout? I've mastered every Pokemon game up to emerald. This is my order of favorites so far. Yellow , Gold , Sapphire , FireRed , Emerald. I know there is diamond , black etc. Which should I go for? Is platinum the same story line as diamond and pearl? By the way i'm going to place this on an emulator if I can find one.

          If you're going to play a gen IV game to pick back up after Emerald, Platinum is the way to go! It fixed a lot of problems that Diamond and Pearl had, so you definitely want to play that and just...ignore that Diamond and Pearl exist, in all honesty. Next you'll want to play either HeartGold or SoulSilver, remakes of Gold and Silver with a lot of influence from Crystal as well. :) Black and White are both great as well, though I recommend White over Black because of the version exclusives. Plus there's a place with really nice music that Black kind of got jipped on, lol. And then after that, there's Black 2 and White 2. You'll want to play the one that matches up with the game you just finished. So if you get White, you'll probably want White 2. Though tbh, Black 2 has most of the version exclusives you miss out on in White, so that might be the better choice.

          If you have questions about those games specifically, feel free to ask in the Q&A threads for those games, like if you want to know more about Black 2, you could ask in the B2W2 Q&A thread in Fifth Generation Gaming. :)

          tl;dr I recommend Platinum, then HeartGold or SoulSilver, then Black or White, then Black 2 or White 2. :)

            They do share the same story, the only difference being the Legendary mascot you encounter before facing the Elite Four, as well as differences with the available Pokemon.

              Question. I'v been thinking about getting into the games for a while now, so I'v been wondering if it would be worth it to get Ruby/Emerald/LeafGreen/FireRed/Colosseum/XD (I have Sapphire). I ask because I'v done a lot of research and it seems like you can catch pretty much all the Pokemon from those in the gen 4-5 games.
              I'm the type that if I got REALLY into the games, I'd want to catch every Pokemon legitimately possible, lol. I know it would costs a lot since I pretty much only have one of 17 games that can transfer throughout each-other, as well as needing a 3ds as I only have a lite.

              So does anyone know if there's anything special about some Pokemon or anything in the gen 3 games?

              tbh, if you want to get all the gen III Pokemon, you're better off dealing with a gen V game. You don't even need to get all the games anymore to collect all the Pokemon, really. You can get a gen V game and trade with people here on PC using the Trade Corner to get other Pokemon you need, and then there are also many available in Dream World and Dream Radar, which is on 3DS, so if you plan on getting one, then there ya go. I don't know much about Dream World or Radar, I'm afraid.

              But from a playing standpoint, if you want to have a bit of fun, I recommend getting FireRed or LeafGreen, Colosseum, and Gale of Darkness. They're all great games on their own, without the massive Pokemon collecting, haha. You already have Sapphire, but if you want to play through Hoenn again and don't want to restart your Sapphire, Emerald is the way to go. But if you're buying online, be very cautious with buying GBA games. A lot of them are faked. If you run across a GBA Pokemon game you want to but, feel free to come to this thread and post pictures of the game you want to purchase so that some of us can help you identify whether or not it's fake.

                I've been lurking on ebay and I saw this
                http://www.ebay.com/itm/281115509848?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
                The price is very attractive
                Black 1 has no box
                Black 2 has box, no manual
                Send from USA
                From pics, cartridges look legit, not faded or grayish like many fakes I've seen.
                Would you say these are real or fake?
                Also, is there really any major drawback to a game being fake?
                Thanks for answering, sorry if this breaks any rules. I read the rules and didn't see anything against this.
                Also I wasn't sure if this should go here or under Pokemon Gaming Central.
                Thanks for reading!

                  Well, likely real. Sometimes fakes look very convincing, sadly. Still, nothing really suggests they are fake from what I see, but just be wary with buying games online.

                  I will merge this with the questions thread of the Pokemon Gaming Central section as your question is specific to games (besides the anime as well or whatnot). Just in case someone else has thoughts to offer on the games being real/fake.

                    The seller sent me 2 new pictures. I'm pretty sure they're legit-
                    http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTIwMFgxNjAw/$T2eC16h,!yEE9s5jHPtcBRqt,HzJcw~~60_4.JPG

                    What do you say?
                    60$ for both + 15$ shipping- Used in Great Condition
                    or
                    Roughly 91$ (shipping included) for both, Completely New, from ShopTo.net
                    (the difference in the price is equal to 3 hours where I work)
                    So what do you say?

                    Those look legit to me. DS games aren't as faked as GBA games, so I'd say you're good to go!

                      I've got some questions :D
                      1. Why do people who are not from Japan, buy and play the Japanese versions of the Pokémon games?
                      2. Why do people prefer UT pokémon? (I assume it means untouched as in never participated in a battle or gained an EXP point)
                      3. Can you participate in events from other regions (for example, Japan) by using a Japanese game, or a Japanese ROM of the game through a flashcart?
                      4. Why do people demand nickname-able pokémon? Are there any pokémon that cannot be nicknamed?
                      5. Say I have a shiny Charmander. If I breed him with a Ditto (one who ISN'T from a different region), will the offspring have a higher chance of being shiny? Will it ALWAYS be shiny?
                      6. Are 'cloned' pokemon (through either AR codes, or GTS clone glitch or w.e) considered legit?
                      7. If I participate in a Nintendo event with a ROM via a flashcart, (For example, getting the recent Deoxys through Mystery Gift on an R4 with a Black 2 rom) considered legit?
                      8. What is up with Headbutt? I read somewhere that if a tree doesn't give a pokemon the first time, it never will & if it does, it always will. But then, on Serebii, I read that there are different kinds of tree, common and rare... I'm really confused


                      I think that's it for now :D Thanks!

                        My question is, how do you clone Pokemon? And why do some people not like clones?

                        2. Why do people prefer UT pokémon? (I assume it means untouched as in never participated in a battle or gained an EXP point)
                        3. Can you participate in events from other regions (for example, Japan) by using a Japanese game, or a Japanese ROM of the game through a flashcart?
                        4. Why do people demand nickname-able pokémon? Are there any pokémon that cannot be nicknamed?
                        5. Say I have a shiny Charmander. If I breed him with a Ditto (one who ISN'T from a different region), will the offspring have a higher chance of being shiny? Will it ALWAYS be shiny?
                        6. Are 'cloned' pokemon (through either AR codes, or GTS clone glitch or w.e) considered legit?
                        7. If I participate in a Nintendo event with a ROM via a flashcart, (For example, getting the recent Deoxys through Mystery Gift on an R4 with a Black 2 rom) considered legit?
                        8. What is up with Headbutt? I read somewhere that if a tree doesn't give a pokemon the first time, it never will & if it does, it always will. But then, on Serebii, I read that there are different kinds of tree, common and rare... I'm really confused :S


                        I think that's it for now :D Thanks!
                        1. Some people like having foreign Pokemon, purely for collection or aesthetic reasons.
                        2. UT Pokemon are more desirable because they have not been tampered with. Therefore you can shape it to what ever you want. Events even more so for collectors, think of it as a rare new game from 10 years ago compared to a one that was opened and played with.
                        3. Yes you can, though only Wi-Fi events unless you plan to travel to the country in question for the local events.
                        4. Some people like nicknames because it gives the Pokemon more meaning, some don't. It's personal preference really.
                        5. No, if you breed shiny Pokemon together it will still be the same 1/8192. Unless you are playing G/S/C, in which case the chances increase, though it's variable depending on the species.
                        6. They are considered legit by only some people. In Trade Corner we allow cloned Pokemon to be traded as long as they are clones of legit Pokemon. However some people do not like them, be sure to ask them before trading!
                        7. Once again, some people consider them legit while some don't. Always ask the person in question before trading.
                        8. Headbutting trees only appears in G/S/C and HG/SS. Basically, some trees allow you to encounter Pokemon, while some will not ever contain Pokemon no matter how many times you Headbutt it. The specific kinds of trees are the ones that contain one kind of Pokemon that is not normally native to HG/SS and those Pokemon can only be found in one tree respectively.

                        Phew, is that it? I hope I answered your questions and gave you the answer you needed >.<

                        There are few different ways, glitch (on certain games), Action Replay, or Pokemon Editing Programs. Some people do not like clones because they view them as hacked or cheated.

                          Ok, got ya.

                          Also, apparently my PalPad is saved to my DS? Cause I just went to enter the WFC for the first time since I got my 3DS & all my PalPad entries are gone. Strange.

                          This is true. When you swap consoles and go into WFC, your FC will change and your Pal Pad is erased. It depends on the console, so yeah. It happened to me too and it took me a while to realize it, haha.

                            They'll understand! Your new FC should be in your Pal Pad. Just check it. :) If it's not, go into WFC and come back out and it'll definitely be there. Also, the last person I heard say "fiddle sticks" was my me maw, so thanks for reminding me of her haha. <3

                              Okay, I've fully EV Trained my Scyther and I was wondering if I should stop leveling it up at level 50, or continue all the way to level 100. I understand when you go to a VGC or Pokemon VG Event that your pokemon are reduced to level 50 and their stats are reduced to that of a pokemon's stats would be at level 50, but are their EV's kept the same?

                              I'm confused whether it would be a waste of time EV training then leveling up my pokemon to 100 if their stats are going to be reduced. So, here's the question again, after EV Traning, should I or do you level your pokemon to 100 or 50 for Video Game events.
