• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

I love shiny pokemon
No opposing trainers found on Free Battle?

(I was uncertain what board would be best for this, and I thought this might be it. If it is not, I apologize)

So lately--probably for the last two weeks or so--I have had extremely little success finding opponents on Free Battle via Wi-Fi on Alpha Sapphire. When I try to connect, I am repeatedly getting the "An opposing Trainer could not be found" message, even after several attempts. Usually, I just give up and turn my game off or start Wonder Trading (never any difficulty finding anyone on there).

I play Triple Battle exclusively, which I get is not the most popular format, but I've never had this difficult of a time finding a Free Battle. Even when AS/OR were brand new, I was always able to find a battle, but these last two weeks... almost never.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a reason for it?

Dexnav advice?

Hi there folks! I was wondering if I could get some advice on my dexnav chaining. Here's what I know:
-Pick a large patch of grass without few open spots and a fairly regular shape
- Sneak to each one
-Saving, encountering pokemon outside of shaking area, having "Nothing Found" or "It ran away!" or anything of that sort breaks chain
-After 30, it is 1/200 or 1/300 chance of shiny(cant remember)
-Encountering a different pokemon in rustling grass doesn't break chain

So here is where I need help:
I can never keep my chain intact. My finger always slips on D-pad and makes me run and scare it, the dexnav cannot find anything, or it runs away. The one time i got to like a chain of 60 on absol without breaking, but no shiny. I wanted to know if anyone could give me advice on how to avoid slipping on d-pad, or if anyone has any other tips or hints or advice on how to fix/avoid my issues above. Please help, and thanks in advance.
(Note, this isn't just for me. It could be helpful to many people.)

Mirage Spots!

Once upon a time, one would find out through the most psychologically-damaging way possible that they couldn't catch their favourite Pokemon...

Then along came Mirage Spots!

How many times have you used Mirage Spots? Do you like this feature? What would you change about it? ;462;


Dragon Pokemon fan
Which Primal do you like more, Groudon or Kyogre?

This is basically about which of the primal legendary pokemon you like more. Which do you like more and why.

Mine is Primal Groudon because: Ground/Fire reduces it weakness to two, it's Desolate Land gets rid of water weakness, Solar Beam can be used straight away and it has an awesome design. Plus if it is used properly against Kyogre/Primal Kyogre then the water legendary is going to have some trouble. Downside however is when Primal Kyogre is used properly, Primal Groudon can be defeated.

Individual "X Pokemon vs. Y Pokemon" threads have never really been allowed, because it would spawn an infinite number of threads.

Shiny hunting Eon-Latias: defeat or run?

I'm going to hunt for a Shiny Latias, does it matter if I defeat her everytime or if I just run to get another encounter untill Shiny, thoughts?


Running from the encounter is actually faster than soft-resetting since she won't have the need to re-spawn. Just repeat until you get that golden Latias!


i have all event pkmn Gen3-7
Lf: extremely Rarex2 Pkmn from previous Game though

Dnt know where to find this extremely rare pkmn found only in Pkmn Ranger 3 Guardian Signs but i want it on my Omega Ruby version i am even willing to pay for it if needed... They are Deoxys [Atk] form with Meteor Mash and Heatran Eruption

Hoopa Serial Code

Why on earth does Nintendo give Hoopa away via serial code to the rest of the world when they gave it to Japan by wi-fi without serial code?

It says to go to a game store to get the code but it there is no game store and the closet store is a short journey by car after several hours on a ferry just to get Hoopa, I am getting sick and tired of Nintendo giving these pokemon away by codes why can't they make them Wi-Fi without codes?

Because Nintendo wants you to get some exercise and some fresh air..


Misty is the Best
I do exercise a lot and have a good job but the need for serial codes are just annoying.
