Thanks for the help, Ty. I ended up just waiting to get strength (I didn't realize it came so early in this game).

In fact, all the HMs seem to come earlier in this game compared to RBY and G/S. Might just be me though...

Anyone want to suggest a moveset for my now level 50 Garchomp? I have no idea what to do with it. Currently it has (I think) slash, crunch, dragon claw, dig. I just want something to get me through the elite four & other in game battles, not some uber hax competitive battling team. :D T.I.A.!

Garchomps are great with earthquake. One of mine has earthquake/dragon claw/crunch/substitute. The other has earthquake/dragon claw/sand storm/substitute. Earthquake is my solution to everything! Even flying things, if I equip the right item. ;D

Earthquake, will do! :D Thank you!

& what item makes flying types vulnerable to ground moves? :o

Edit: also, I'm guessing that the draco meteor move isn't a good choice since Garchomp's all about the physical and not the special attacks, right?

Hmm, I just got up and I'm suffering vertigo, so I can't remember. Also may be insane. Either is possible. Oh, wait, if you have Iron Ball and a move to exchange held items, that does it. I knew there was a reason I didn't do it with my Garchomps!

Ingame, it does not matter, really. You can beat the entire storyline with just your starter.

In competitive battling, it's more of an issue, and again, it depends on the IVs and the nature and you can always EV train to compensate.

Wow, if this weren't stickied already, I'd be all scandalous resuscitating an ancient thread. :-P

Anyway, I'm back into playing my Pokémon Diamond, beat E4, all that jazz. I did let my Dragonair evolve to Dragonite. Sadness and such, but I will have her former good looks in memory and enjoy the expanded moves benefits. She can use Fly now and at least isn't a terribly obnoxious shade of orange.

I was on Route 229 hunting for a male Scyther. Too bad the name I associate with them is 12 characters long, so I finally caught one and named him Slash. He's going to be my Defogger and False Swiper.

Anyway, I came across my first shiny ever (I think)...a shiny female Gloom. I'm not enamored with them, so if anyone wants her, let me know and we'll figure out trading. I can change her name to whatever you want beforehand.

I don't tend to ever mind Pokemon getting resurrected... certainly not for shinies. *rubs Fjorab for luck*

I don't think I ever even raised a plant, outside of the grass starter. Hee.

Thanks! I should probably sign up for some form of Pokemon newsletter so I don't miss out on things... but I dunno where to go for that, so I appreciate the news. ;D Another Darkrai! ee!

Platinum is awesome, I definitely don't regret buying it. I keep buying Pokemon games, though. I'm their ideal customer. "So 99% of the game is the same, but that 1% is kind of different? I can collect things all over again? ...should I buy two?"

Ohhh. If anyone has a Togepi with the Serene Grace ability that they'd be willing to trade me, that would be marvelous! I saved at the wrong point, got a Togepi with Hustle, and it's put me off my game for AGES xD (I wanted Togekiss in my team, but not with HUSTLE!)

Actually, speaking of shinies, I got my first ever one in my platinum game that I'm on now. A shinx! Got it right at the start too, so it's been in my team and is not a shiny luxio called Bee :3

I have a relaxed one, which is currently named Usako, but I think it's mine and I could rename it. I could be wrong or crazy. It's not the best nature, but it does have serene grace. Maybe someone has one with a better nature, but you can PM me if you want mine. =}

So similar to the Member Card promo, in a week or so you can get Oak's Letter, which will let you catch Shaymin :D http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/O ... n_Platinum
