Did any of you guys use this? :o What do you think of the Sinnoh Underground, and how useful did you find it for finding items like Heart Scales, Elemental Stones and even fossils?

The Underground was one of my favourite new features in Diamond & Pearl. It was something to do aside the storyline and it was a great way to get some awesome items such as Fossils or Elemental Stones. I never really did utilize the online connectivity feature, but I did spend a lot of time using this feature offline.

    I found it fun when I actually got items that I was looking for, but it was VERY frustrating when I missed a fossil or stone by just two clicks...

      I got sooooo much items from spending my time here. I loved the concept and spend hours working on my secret base and mining, I only wish they would've made some events surrounding the Underground.

      I loved Sinnoh bases, and I loved that they were interconnected so you could play capture-the-flag with others--my friends and I would get quite the kick out of that! I also enjoyed that you could excavate Items. Even if it was hard to do so sometimes due to the limited number of hits available, it was still a really fun and clever way of making a minigame based on utilizing the then-new touch screen!

      I could never get into it. I tried it out a couple of times, but seemed boring to me :(

      I wish I liked it more.

        Hah! This was one of the best feature from D/P/Pt in my eyes! Combining secret bases, item digging and local multiplayer
        I remember the good times i spend with friends in the underground, playing capture the flag or looking for the bases of each others <3

        Sure. I wish this feature to be in the 4th gen remake with online functionnality and more possibilities. It would be so cool
        Imagine that you create a lobby for up to 10 friends, where you can trade, battle, play mini-games or anything else you can imagine! Just like Poke-Plaza

        Aw, man. :( Perhaps try it out in a hypothetical DPPt remake and see what your thoughts are about it then? That is, assuming they improve it to have Wi-Fi capabilties by that point (in which they should).

        I wasted hours in the Underground. Such a fun feature. It gave me hours of extra fun in my playthrough. I will agree that it gets a bit boring when you don't have people to play with, though.

        But that's a part of why I'm so exited for the remakes. An underground with vastly improved multiplayer connectivity? Yes, please.

        I loved the Sinnoh underground and remember running around down there with my cousin when the games first came out. I never really realised how useful it could be though and in my most recent playthrough of Platinum, I used it to get some fossils :3

            My brother and I used to play in the underground so much. We never battled each other, just played in the underground. xD I loved finding fossils and things of the like.

            I really only used it to try and find Heart Scales and other stray stones here and there, but overall, I think it was pretty cool! Still, I hoped they had more stuff to it, like more pokemon findings like fossils and what not.

            I still miss this feature and I really want it to make a return in future games.

            Loved this feature so much!! Honestly an under appreciated feature that needs to make a reappearance in a future game.
            I would look for the perfect fossils for hours and hours and racked up on so many stones and shards. The mini-games were pretty fun and a good break from the standard Pokémon battles you're dealt with and the Game Corner. GF seriously should have more lil mini-games/features like this to add an extra "spice" to the games.
