There is a place, but it was only activated by an event that can no longer be accessed. If you still need a Darkrai, you could browse the trade shops in Trade Corner for one. And you can read about the Darkrai events here. :) Pretty sure that the one that had a specific location took place on New Moon Island.

In the future, if you have questions about a specific generation of Pokemon, please use the corresponding Q&A thread. In this case, you would use the 4th Gen help thread in 4th Generation Gaming.

    Sup guys!
    I've just finished re-playing Gold on my GameBoy Advance and I started wondering, which games do you need to Catch 'em all?
    I mean, you could get Black 2 and start Wi-Fi trading, but it won't be very entertaining per se.
    If you were to get all the Pokémon games to the date, obviously you'd be able to do it, but it'd be very expensive.
    Which is the minimum quantity of games you need? And number of consoles?

      I remember in 4th gen you needed all of the games, because... If you get Platinum, for example:

      - Need Diamond for Stunky
      - Need Pearl for Glameow
      - Need HeartGold for legendary exclusives like Kyogre, Latios, etc.
      - Need SoulSilver for legendary exclusives as well as the Jade Orb because you need to trade Kyogre to SoulSilver to access Rayquaza (or Groudon to HeartGold)
      - Generally you need a Johto game and a Sinnoh game to access a large roster.

      In general, GF always makes it so that, within the same generation, you need all the games to get the exclusives. You can, and must in some cases, transfer from old generation in order to complete the Pokédex, which requires more games and therefore a higher price.

        You don't need to announce it... xD
        Once someone asks, someone answers it that's how it goes.

          tbh my question is:
          What are the Pokémon differences between PMD - RRT and PMD - BRT?

          Bulbapedia has a list =)
          There are not many differences but since Blue is DS version, it's considered superior =)

            Soz, i'm still getting used to this stuff. Anyway, the difference between the two games are very slim. BRT has more updated sound effects and higher quality music. The overall difference of the game-play though is minimal.

              Okay, Straight to it. I need a question answered.
              & I need somebody to check my Pokemon for hacks. Not many just 2 or 3.

              Question is; If a Pokemon is bred from a hacked Pokemon. Is the hatchling hacked also?

              And i have tried to trade my Lapras to the GTS to use Pokecheck. So i can see if its hacked. (which it is not because i caught it in game. (HGSS)
              But still. But it won't let me upload the Pokemon. Is this because of Nintendo's sensor?

              As in you cannot trade a Pokemon to the GTS with swear words in the name.
              Example; You cannot trade Weedle because it contains the word "weed" in its name.

              Is this my problem? If so how can i check if my Pokemon are hacked?
              If i can figure this out on my own, I won't need somebody to check for me.

              Thanks guys your help will be appreciated.

              EDIT: IM TALKING ABOUT GEN IV GAMES.

              If a Pokemon is bred from a hacked Pokemon, or a hacked Pokemon and a legit Pokemon, it's still considered legit because it was obtained by in-game methods, and not outside methods like Action Replay.

              Nintendo shouldn't be preventing you from uploading to Pokecheck though. I think you should be able to get help with that in Trade Corner's chit chat thread or something. They know a lot about it there.

              If you can't get Pokecheck to work, there is a hack check thread in Trade Corner and you can get someone else to check your Pokemon for you.

                Don't know where this needs to go, but how are the F.E.A.R pokes obtained? I'm trying to get an aron that's why I put this question in this section.

                Breed two Aron from Mistralton Cave (or Lairon from Clay Tunnel), until you get an offspring Aron with Sturdy. Teach the Aron the appropriate moves:
                -Endeavor (Nacrene City move tutor for 12 Green Shards)
                -Toxic (from Seaside Cave, TM06)
                -Protect (Battle Subway/Pokemon World Tournament for 6 BP, TM17)
                -Hidden Power Rock (PWT/Battle Subway for 18 BP)/Rock Slide (Mistralton Cave, TM80)

                  Can this be done on a Gen. game or No? I mean I can transfer to 5th Gen. for moves, just wondering.

                  You can do this in Black 2/White 2; Aron is available pre-National Dex.

                    Will the ability change with leveling up?

                    No. If you get an Aron with Sturdy, then its ability will stay fixed that way; you can't change it (though some Pokemon change their abilities when they evolve; in Aron's case, its evolved forms share the abilities Sturdy and Rock Head).

                      I wasn't sure where to post this so here it goes:

                      In light of the Event Torchic to be released, I'm just wondering if anyone knows what Ireland is like in terms of getting Event Pokemon? I kinda want it but I've never done an event before.

                      So what is Ireland like, do we fare the same as the UK or do I have a hope?
                      And what exactly do you do at an event? how does the pokemon manifest in your game?

                        Here's something I'm having trouble with... I'm trying to trade online with someone else here. We're both using Diamond/Pearl on a 3DS, we both have Wireless internet connection, etc. Now the strange part. We can't seem to register each other in the pal pad, we've double checked and what not, it won't work. What seems to be the problem? It keeps saying 'Friend Code wrong' ...

                        Did you obtain your FC using your 3DS or another DS? You get a different FC for each device - I've had that problem swapping between DSLite and DSi. And if it's not you, your friend? Just my suggestion :)

                          I obtained it with my 3DS, not sure about the person I'm trading with though. Are you suggesting that our DS systems are unable to communicate due to obtaining the FC on a different DS model?

                          EDIT: Massive misunderstanding! haha, the individual I'm trading with was adding my FC on the '3DS friend code menu' not in the Pokemon game, he was giving me his 3DS FC hence why it wasn't registering... Thanks for the quick reply regardless! ;D

                            I'm curious, has anyone else ever had issues with the voice recognition in Hey You! Pikachu? I don't actually own it anymore, but I remember when I was a kid, Pikachu did crazy, off the wall stuff that didn't even make sense based on what I told it to do. I watched a guy do a Let's Play, and his Pikachu did the same thing. o:

                              There are many sites out there that offer decent-looking trainer sprites, such as PokéCheck and PokéStadium. Maybe you could try one of those? =)

                              Check out the Pixel Art section or an art shop. Someone might be able to make you one there. In the future, please know that this help thread is for games, not finding sprites.
