    4th Gen Help Thread

    For all intense and purposes from a game data perspective, there will be nothing different between the event pokemon caught using exploit key items and legitimate key items. What is being manipulated is the flag to activate the event, and not the pokemon itself.

    4th Gen Recent Happenings Thread

    The last post on page 42 (by me) details out the 100 streak. But as a general suggestion, you need to do two things. The first is you need to make the AI predictable and the second is you need to design a way to take as much abuse as possible. If you can do both of those, you wont be guaranteed...

    Favorite Gen 4 Starter Evolution Line?

    Overall, I think all 9 Sinnoh Starters are really solid. Back when the games came out, I was really big on Torterra but over the years and tons of competitive play, Infernape has become my favorite. Really like all 3 though; they have great unique designs are are able to make breakthroughs of...

    What Pokemon Teams did you have on your Gen 1 playthroughs? Any good memories?

    My original team in Pokemon Red was Venusaur, Pidgeot, Gyarados, Arcanine, Jolteon, and Scyther. Young me made a pretty solid team without really any knowledge of the game back in '98. After playing through the games again, this team is still really fun to use and one of my favorite overall...

    What game did you get your first shiny Pokémon in?

    First shiny I ever got was a male Slugma in Pokemon Silver. Unfortunately I do not have it as there was no way to connect Gen2 games to Gen3, and then the battery in my game died. On technicality, my first shiny would be Articuno as the one I transfered from my Red version to Silver was shiny...

    What Pokemon Teams did you have on your Gen 4 playthroughs? Any good memories?

    My first team on Diamond was Torterra, Staraptor, Luxray, Floatzel, Toxicroak, Lucario. Still have them all on GenVII too! What’s funny looking back on it is that they were all physical attackers.

    4th Gen Recent Happenings Thread

    So its' been a minute but earlier this month, I completed my Battle Tower streak of 100+ and finally got my Black Card on my original Diamond file. What a relief it is to be done with it. At some point I'll continue the streak just to see how high I can get it, but at the moment, it stands at...

    Getting, Skipping or Canceling Pre-Orders (Poll)

    I'll be getting LG: Pikachu. I will admit that I was a little apprehensive up until lately. Really what changed my mind was VGC staying with USuMo and not LG. After that I was able to "settle in" and accept that these will be just for fun games to relax and enjoy while taking comfort in knowing...

    Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Recent Happenings Thread

    Stuck inside due to the hurricane, decided I’d use this time to soft reset for a shiny Latios. Currently at encounter 270, with shiny charm. It’s been a long long time since I SR’d for a shiny legendary. Hoping I have the patience to complete this hunt. Edit: Ended up getting the Shiny Latios a...

    It's been a minute but I'm back with a Pokemon Diamond update. Did the next set of 7 in Battle tower as I work towards my final Trainer Star. This was battles 42-49, which as we know ends on the second fight with Tower Tycoon Palmer. I didn't really struggle too much on battles 42-48, I...

    4th Gen Recent Happenings Thread

    So far today, I've only had the time to do one more set of 7 bringing me to battle 35 complete. This run was really aggravating however. It seemed like all 7 trainers either lead with something that spammed double team, or was lead Abomasnow, which my team doesn't match up with terribly well...

    4th Gen Recent Happenings Thread

    Finally had some time to play again. I was able to get another 7 streak in to bring my current streak up to 28. Playing much slower this time around to really weigh out my options. So far, my team of Garchomp, Starmie, Blissey hasn't had any issues. Even with the insane amounts of double team...

    4th Gen Recent Happenings Thread

    Well, my first streak came to an end at 38 (won 37). That battle was exceedingly haxy against me but in hindsight, I could have played more safe and gave myself better odds. If I want to get to 100, I need to play smarter and weigh all options. I got back to 21 and beat Palmer. Haven't had a...

    4th Gen Recent Happenings Thread

    Current streak (also first streak) is at 35 before I had to stop. Went from battle 1-Palmer's first fight with Garchomp never leaving the field. I've had one bout of hax but was able to still secure the victory to keep moving forward. Haven't had a chance to play again as I want to make sure I'm...

    Oh boy, lots to update! Been berry farming for the last month or so, had to bring my EV berries, pinch berries, type berries, and some poffin berries up in stock. I've also been going to all the daily events each day to get extra stuff (the berry lady in Pastoria is oh so helpful as is the Daily...
