I always try to do that as well but every time the Geodudes start popping up in the first cave I find it very difficult to resist them.

By the way, I now have plenty of level 1 Turtwigs if anybody wants one. I managed to snag a female off the GTS for a Flaafy.


Aron in the last series saved me from the 'Geodude Dilemma.'

And speaking of which, what starter would anyone suggest? I'm torn between the Turtle and the Penguin.

EDIT: And, while we're on Geodude, this might be a place to arrange 'double trades' or 'trade backs' for those pesky evolutions like Golem, Machamp, and Alakazam.

Well, I went with Chimchar because it's a freakin' flaming monkey! I just wish they had gone with a second type other than fighting like Blaziken had. As for the other two, Piplup ends up water and steel, which seems like a pretty interesting new combo, and Turtwig ends up grass and ground, which seems very usefull (kinda like Swampert was with water and ground). Plus, I think Torterra looks awesome with the giant tree on its back. So, I guess now, with all the stuff I know now, I think I'd go with Turtwig if I was just getting started.

Seconded. Just be warned that you'll probably have to pick up Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald and Leaf Green or Fire Red if you're a "Gotta Catch 'em All" kinda guy. Oh, and they also make you buy Pokemon Ranger if you want two of the legendaries.

On a side note, am I missing something in the Battle Tower? I was under the impression that the Pokemon you battle in there showed up as "seen" in your Pokedex. So far, I've battled many that I hadn't seen yet and they aren't in my 'dex. Was I just given bad information?

You can get a Manaphy egg if you beat Ranger. From Manaphy, you can breed a Phione. Not the greatest legendaries but that's the only way to get them unless you trade for them.

I think I might still have an extra one on my Ruby. If I can ever find my Ruby, that is.

So what starters do you guys suggest for each version. I'm thinking Turtwig for Pearl...

I usually go with the water-type for all of the games, but having a grass-type that you will want to use other than for just a HM whore is good too. There are a lot of rock and ground types in the wild in the two games, so grass would help.

Plus turtwig's full evolved for looks badass :D

I found a really good site for setting up wifi trades.

Also, this site lets you make these cool little trainer cards.

Well, I beat the Elite 4 on my first shot yesterday with a team of lvl 50's across the board. For some reason, it seemed easier this time around. The team was...

Torterra (A physical tank, and Wood Hammer is Huge.)
Garchop (Probably the best sweeper I had.)
Luxray (Had to teach him Thunder, but it was worth it.)
Bronzong (Didn't really use him much, but Hypnosis came in handy.)
Drapion (Weak before I taught him some moves like Brick-Break, but he was basically a speedy tank.)
Gyarados (Just. Huge. Ya, I know I only like to use ones of that generation, but I wanted to test him out with the new physical attack system.)

EDIT: Still haven't been able to get on Wi-Fi where I'm at. Any tips?

I beat my Diamond the other day, it's not at all gratifying, just like Gen 3. Wish I didn't buy DP together now. Oh well, I hated Hoenn, beat it three times, I guess I can do Shinnoh twice. Johto/Kanto is still the best region. :/ REMAKE, NEEDED.

you know that they remade red and green(blue) for the GBA, right? And a Gold/Silver remake would be redundant because all of the Gen. 2 pokemon can be caught in the other games (Emerald and the red/green remakes weren't redundant because they had the gen 2 pokemon whereas ruby/sapphire didn't)

You know Blue in Japan, Yellow, Crystal, Emerald and whatever 3rd game they make for DP are redundant aswell? Yellow being the pinnacle of unneeded games. :/ In anycase, these games are getting worse, makes me wonder why I buy all of each gen.

actually, if you read my post, emerald wasn't redundant (it had 2nd gen pokemon that weren't in any of the other GBA/DS games, not even the red/green remakes. Since the GBA games are incompatible with the GBC games, you can only get those pokemon from emerald). But yeah, most of the other "3rd" games are useless except for the little upgrades (like the anime-styled storyline in yellow and the female protagonist in crystal). If anything, they're actually worse than the other two because you have to trade with both of the other versions in order to get them all (red could get all of em' just by trading with blue, but yellow would have to trade with red and blue because it's missing a little from both).

I thought Colloseum and XD covered all Johto, oh well not that it matters, after getting R/Y/G/C complete dexes, I gave up on dexes other than the regional and took no notice, now with it being simply, gotta see em all now too. In the same note as yellow, a GS remake could be made merely as a fanwank, seeing as it is the most popular gen, being released at the pinnacle off the rage, aswell as DP having most of the mechanics, the Rare Items and all the Johto referances.
