Pokeball behind Dialga

After u catch Dialga, go up, up, up, and u will find a pokeball. It is the Adamant orb. Give it to Dialga and it will increase its dragon and steel atacks.

tow_mater, Mar 5, 2011

New places

When you get the natinol dex, a lot of places will open up. Like a place to catch Giratina. It is in Turnback cave. First act as if you are going down to the hotel but to the far right of the honey tree and maybe a little up, there is a parting in the trees. Go down that road. You need rock climb to complete this. Giratina is level 70. It is Ghost-dragon. So dragon and dark type moves should lower it's HP pretty quickly. The best poke-ball to use is a dusk ball. It will be more powerful at night, but it will be pretty powerful since you are in a cave.

Harvester, Mar 5, 2011

Special Seals

Most people think the only place to get seals is in sunnyshore. Well their wrong. When you go into the cave next to solaceon town (not the tower) catch different type of "unknown". What i mean by that is different shapes. Go to different floors to find them. Then talk to the little boy. he will leave. Go to the house where you got the seal case. You will see the boy. Put your unkown in the front of your team. Talk to the boy he will give you seals that look like your unkown.

Legendaries And Catching Them

Action Replay-Walk Through Anything:
Go to route 224 and walk behind the smooth stone. Soon you will see land. Progress until you reach Shaymin at level 30.

Darkai Event: First, talk to the boy and the woman with a sign next to their house and go out and talk to the man who would ask you if you want to set sail for Iron Island. Say yes to going to Full Moon island and get the item hes looking for. You will also see Cresselia, but it will run like Mesprit. It will leave the item on the ground. Then, once the boy is healed, go to the inn (with your Members Card-it is imperative that you have the members card. Go along with the bed thing and find Darkai on New Moon island at level 40....

Normal-Heatran: After Buck has taken the rock (forgot what it was called) from Mt.Stark, go to the survival area and find Buck's house. Talk to buck and he will leave for Mt.Stark. Follow him and go back to where he found the stone. Instead,you will see Heatran at level 70.

Giratina: Go to the Springs by the Maniac Tunnel. Across a small lake, there should be a cave. Go in and read what the first cave writing says. Find the three pillars before one of the numbers hits 30. Then go through any door. Giratina will be there at level 70.

Wi-Fi Event Arceus: Use a special flute (forgot what it was called) at the Spear Pillar. Climb the stairs that will suddenly appear and at the top, you should find Arceus at which level I don't know yet.

Note: Darkai and Cresselia can be caught using Action Replay cheats, but they are also available through Wi-Fi events.

Old Chateau's Secrets

As I'm sure you know, there is a haunted house called the Old Chateau. After you get the National Pokedex, go back to the haunted house at night. Go up one of the staircases and go through the door in the back. You will now be in a hallway with 5 doors. One of these doors will be right in front of you. If you walk to the right a little, there is another door. Go in and out until your character stops by itself on the inside. Look to the room on your right and you will see a little girl. She will float out of the door(rather than walk). Then go out of that room and go to the entrance room. Go down to the door with the statue next to it and touch the statue. Then go through the door. Your movements will again be arrested for a short time. An old man sitting at the table will float out of the room. The girl can be seen multiple times, but I've only seen the old man twice. Go try it.

Another cool thing is the pokemon Rotom. To catch it simply go to the haunted house at night and go to the TV in the back. Bring quick balls it is level 15. Interact with it and it should ask if you want to thump the tv. Do so and Rotom will appear. Note:it is best to save the game before trying to catch Rotom as there is only one.

Spring Path aka Find Giratina

After the Elite Four go south of Vielstone and their where be a small path and a pond place. Use rockclimb.

Go in the cave keep going left until you find GIRATINI! At level 70 (use a master ball, he's impossible to catch)

CodeMaster, Mar 5, 2011


Feebas only appears on four of the tiles in the underground lake at Mt. Coronet. You must use an Old Rod to find it. Once you find the correct square it has a 50% chance of appearing. Try each square multiple times.

Catch Gible

Go to the route underneath Cycling Road (south of Eterna City) and go north. You will see a cave entrance to Wayward Cave. Do not go in. Instead, go left and you will see a bridge. Step underneath the bridge and go to the second square from the left, then keep going up. There is a secret entrance to Wayward Cave. Use Strength to move the boulder in front of you upwards and go left down the stairs. You will need to solve a simple course of bicycle jumps to reach the end of the cave. After awhile you should see a staircase going up. In this room you will find TM26, which contains Earthquake. You can also catch Gible here.

Untouchable Grass

After you have found the Pal Park on Pokemon Platinum, Diamond, or Pearl, behind it is a few scattered batches of tall grass. Although it is behind Pal Park, it wont hold all the very different Kanto, Hoenn, Johto type pokemon, only Sinnoh Pokemon. ( Such as Skuntank. )

The only way to get to the grass is to have the cheat Move Anywhere Cheat, or on Platinum, Ghost Code. Also Roselia, Skuntank, Staravia, Bibarel, Rapidash, Kricketune, Luxray, Electabuzz, and if your lucky, a 100% Shiny Guaranteed, Lucario, Drifblim, and Togekiss.

Easter Eggs

Pokemon jump

On the friendship checker app. tap the screen twice real fast and your pokemon will jump. It is really funny and it works for pearl too.

Bringin' up Baby Pokemon

I put this in Eggs because it involves eggs. Sorry but it should fit.

If you want a rare pokemon (say you got Empoleon in a trade and you want a Piplup) all you have to do is catch a Ditto (which can be found beside Canclave City in Diamond) or migrate one.

Put it in the Daycare with the Pokemon you want an egg from and when the egg hatches it will be a baby of the Pokemon you put with the Ditto.

What I think happens is this: Ditto is put into a Daycare with a pokemon that hates it. To make this Pokemon less angry, Ditto transforms into the Pokemon and, when the two pokemon play, Ditto lays an egg.

Geez, I sound insane.

Ghost Gang

You must have the HM Cut, as well as the Forest Badge, to find this easter egg. Use Cut on the trees near the exit to Eterna Forest to discover a path to a mysterious mansion. There are two rooms that hold spooks: One is the dining room downstairs and the other is upstairs on the far right, but you can only see it from the adjacent room to the left. If you have a GBA game in slot 2 of the DS or the National Dex, you can get a Haunter and Gengar in the room with the "eyed portrait" that seems to look at you if you back away from it, or a Rotom in the 2nd floor TV (respectively).

Uncle M's Ghost Patrol #1

Ay've seen plenty of li'l ghosties and Uncle M ain't afraid anymore. My supernatural sighting in Pokemon: Diamond Version is at The Old Chateau, which is at the exit of the Eterna Forest. Cut down one of the small trees and enter the Chateau. Items can be found in some of the rooms but that don't matter. Go upstairs and head into the door in the middle. Once you're in, go into the room on the FAR RIGHT. Then go into the room with the glowing eyes. Go back. If you do this three times you will not be able to move in the room with the eyes, and if you look to the right you will see a little girl- floating out of the room. Fortunatley, she will not come into your room, thinking you are the person that killed her and send your carachter to a bloody doom. There are also plenty of Gastly to entertain you and, if you have a GBA game Pak inserted, a Rotom in the TV and Haunter and Gangar in the room with the glowing eyes!.

Cloning Pokemon and items

For this you will need nintendo Wi-fi and can take some time to get the hang of but don't worry if it doesn't work, it's more luck than judgement.

Have the pokemon/item you want to clone in your box and go to the pokemon GTS - enter it and click deposit pokemon, choose the pokemon you want for it (something no one will have) and put it up for trade - look at the little clock on the screen and see how many times it goes around. Withdraw your pokemon and do the same again except one tick of the clock before it will put it up for trade, turn your DS off immediately, turn your DS back on and you should have an error code, this is normal, go back on GTS and withdraw your pokemon, now check your box, you should have 2 of the pokemon and/or items, if it still says deposit you have done too soon and if you have done it too late you will only have one, keep trying.
