    www .ebay.co.uk/itm/POKEMON-PLATINUM-VERSION-POKEMON-PEARL-VERSION-DS-GAME-CARD-ONLY-GOOD-CONDITION-/251325195751?pt=UK_PC_Video_Games_Video_Games_JS&hash=item3a842625e7
    the link i have posted is one i have found and i need some opinions
    I have a strong hunch that these games are fake. I'll give you a some reasons why...

    First of all, it's the cartridge only, in plastic cases.
    The stickers on the cartridge don't match my legit games.
    There are multiple available from the same seller!
    The Nintendo seal is on the wrong side, it should be on the left side.
    I don't think any cartridges have the 'E' rating on them.

      My best explanation would be all three that you mentioned in the OP. It's pretty good, but some parts can be pretty childish. (At least in the sequel, not sure about the first one.) But, you might still enjoy it. Try it out.

          My friend has a Volcarona, which is incredibly OP as it has high Special Attack, Special Defence and Speed! My team consists of Ampharos, Emboar, Lilligant, Lucario, Weavile and Gliscor. Is there anything I can do to counter this monster without my Pokemon getting massacred? It has Heat Wave, Psychic, Bug Buzz and Hurricane. Any suggestions? And yes, it's faster than Lilligant, so Sleep Powder won't work.
          Also, what moveset do you think I should give to my Gliscor, considering its Sand Veil ability? I caught and evolved it very recently and really want to make use of it.

            Hmmm... Stealth Rock seems like a viable solution! Unless it's the lead. Then Rock Slide would your best bet.

              so i just ordered my first 3ds and pokemon y from usa, and i got a friend who ordered it here is israel.
              my question is, first, what is "region lock", will it affect in anyway my gameplay if it's by trade, pvp, party (heard it's a new feature in the x&y, got anymore info on it?) rather worldwide or five feet away from the other person?

              Region lock basically prevents you from playing say a NA cart on a Japanese 3DS, for example. It doesn't mess with the other stuff like wifi and whatnot. Donno about this "party" but few does since the game isn't out yet.

                if oyu ordered a 3ds from the usa you'll have to get usa games.
                because your 3ds will be region locked to the usa.

                  Hi guys, yesterday I got Pokemon yellow (finally, sigh). And I planning to stick to it for a while, however, I'm not sure what to play afterwards!
                  I am planning to play all generations from the beginning. I am afraid that if I go though Kanto now, and then Kanto and Johto in Crystal, Soul Silver will feel boring and repetitive and I won't be able to enjoy it, not the story or graphics. Since I would already know everything that's going to happen. (Or at least most of it). So should I skip the Crystal?
                  My playing order was supposed to be:
                  Yellow-Crystal-FireRed-Emerald-SoulSilver-Platinum-White-White2-X

                  But now I am not sure whether I should skip the Crystal(And maybe firered(?)) and just return to them (much) later when nostalgia kicks in?

                  To sum up:, should I play firered after yellow, and then emerald and soulsilver, or should I just skip it all and play yellow, then emerald, and then soulsilver?

                  If you guys played all of these games and you can suggest a playing order, feel free to! :D

                  I suggest you to go with the order of playing that you have stated in your post:

                  Yellow -> Crystal -> FireRed -> Emerald -> SoulSilver -> Platinum -> White -> White2 -> X

                  Crystal and SoulSilver, although having similar storylines, are vastly different from each other! The both of them are almost like two different games. Skipping Crystal means skipping an entire generation and I wouldn't recommend that if you want to have a full Pokemon experience from start to end. The same goes to FireRed. It's up to you to decide though! Just remember to enjoy yourself! All the best in your Pokemon adventures. :D

                    Hmm are you sure? I mean, by the time I start SoulSilver I will pass through the whole Johto once, and through the whole Kanto THREE times. Wouldn't that ruin...something? Either that "Surprise" factor since you will know everything, or even the "adventurous" feel? Idk, Im just guesssing what might happen so I might be over analyzing xD

                    Yup, I'm sure. c: I've played both Crystal and SoulSilver and I can honestly say that the both of them have very different feelings. Even though you may be traveling through the whole region three times, you'll experience many different things you won't be able to experience in just one game. The 'Surprise factor' will definitely be present, and all you have to do is to find out that factor and be pleasantly surprised. But as I've said before, it's entirely up to you! This is just my personal recommendation. :3

                        This question thread is actually for the Pokemon video games, I'm afraid. You can however ask in the Pokemon TCG section of the forum! :) Right here: http://www.pokecommunity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=14

                          Will a Ditto from my Japanese copy of Soul Silver work for the Masuda Method if I trade it over to my copy of Black or Black 2? The game itself is from Japan but it's played on my US DS/3DS. I've heard that it can be any foreign pokémon but I haven't had much luck in finding out if different generations count or not since the odds have changes with gen 5.

                          So far I've figured out that I can't actually transfer pokémon from my Japanese game to my US Black 1 or 2 so I trade them to any of my US gen 4 games and then it works fine. The whole process gets tedious so I want to make sure it works before I go Ditto hunting to have a Japanese Ditto army.

                            Gates to Infinity DLC. Will I have to pay for it again if I download something and decide to start my game over?

                              Alright, so I use Desmume 0.99 for an emulator. I can not access my Start menu or anything in Volt White. Do I need a different emulator? Or is there a different way to access it then start?

                              Will a Ditto from my Japanese copy of Soul Silver work for the Masuda Method if I trade it over to my copy of Black or Black 2? The game itself is from Japan but it's played on my US DS/3DS. I've heard that it can be any foreign pokémon but I haven't had much luck in finding out if different generations count or not since the odds have changes with gen 5.

                              So far I've figured out that I can't actually transfer pokémon from my Japanese game to my US Black 1 or 2 so I trade them to any of my US gen 4 games and then it works fine. The whole process gets tedious so I want to make sure it works before I go Ditto hunting to have a Japanese Ditto army.
                              Yes, as long as the Ditto is Japanese in an English game, it's still considered foreign. You could perhaps try having someone in Trade Corner help you get that transferred over, since you can't transfer from a Japanese game to an English one. Check out the Quick Trade Thread, and I'm certain someone would be willing to help you out.

                                I need help guys.
                                You know the Ditto glitch, right? You enter the battle with someone then press enter etc. Basically, glitch to get any Pokemon you want.

                                I got stuck however.
                                First I went to battle the trainer that's a bit north from the island.
                                I have an Abra with stats 21. So I go into Mansion and find the ditto, he transforms into Abra, I beat him, and get out. Now I go north, and the color changes from gray to green right before I touch the water, so I assume I entered the area where that trainer is (?), but nothing happens! And since I can't enter water, I am just stuck there. I cant talk to anyone, I cant fight anyone. What do I do?
                                Is there something I can do?
                                Where can I find Pokemon that has bigger chance of having special stats 21?

                                MOD, please don't put this into quick questions. Let it be a topic, and when someone helps me, you can delete the topic....after I see the answer, ofc xD

                                Afraid that's not how it works. :/ Off to Q&A thread it goes. Sorry. Although, it would be beneficial if you asked this in the Q&A thread it goes in. Right now, I don't know what game you're referring to. My only guess is RBY since you said special stat. So...you might be better off asking in the glitch discussion thread and/or the Metal/Color Q&A thread.

                                    quick question:

                                    Why didn't the 150 Pokemon trend continue to Gen 2 3 and 4? it just settled to a bit over 100. I wish was they added an exta new 50 to each gen.

                                      While there is no official answer for your question, the following answers might be able help you:
                                      • Memory capacity, adding a Pokemon means adding pile of data, moveset, stats and more;
                                      • Out of ideas, maybe their limit reached there and couldn't create anymore, so they have to stop there;
                                      • Unreleased and/or Out of place, there's a rumor that Shellos was going to be in RS, but couldn't make it there. Maybe the GF crew thought that Shellos does not fit in the Hoenn region.

                                      Hope that helps a bit! :)
