Tricking the clock hint

Since the in-game clock is in sync with your Nintendo DS and since certain events only happen every once in a while, simply adjust your DS clock. For example, the guard in the Pokemon Mansion guarding the Bronze Statue only takes a break between 2 and 5 a.m. Set your clock to that time so he is gone. This also helps in speeding up berry production by jumping a few days back and forth. Note: After moving the clock forwards or backwards, you cannot migrate for 24 hours after trying to migrate, even if you set the clock back.

Easy wins hint

First, make sure you have a Shedinja, a Pokemon that knows Skill Swap, and a Ghost-Dark hybrid. This trick only works in double battles. Enter the Shedinja and the Skill Swap Pokemon into battle first, then immediately have the Pokemon that knows Skill Swap use it on Shedinja. Afterwards, switch Shedinja out with your Ghost-Dark hybrid and have the Pokemon who knows Skill Swap use it on your Ghost-Dark hybrid. Since no move can deal Super Effective damage to a Ghost-Dark hybrid, using this trick to swap Shedinja's Wonderguard over will make it invincible. However, even with Wonderguard, the Ghost-Dark hybrid will only be invulnerable to attacks. meaning that special conditions, recoil, etc. will still damage it.

Game cannot continue glitch

Sometimes, after battling in the third gym in Veilstone City, Dawn will not ask you to help her take back her Pokedex from Team Galactic. If you talk to the Team Galactic members that were guarding the warehouse, the dialogue between you and them will be the same as when you are helping Dawn, but the battle will not start because Dawn isn‘t there. This is a game-breaking glitch and you must start a new game as you cannot continue your journey any further.

Duplicating Pokemon and items

  • This trick requires a Nintendo WiFi connection. Go into the GTS building with two and five Pokemon in your party, including the one you want to duplicate. Talk to the woman to save the game then let you in. Choose "Deposit Pokemon" and select the Pokemon you want to duplicate. Select a Pokemon that is impossible to have, such as a level 1 Dialga. When it says "Conditions Okay", press A. Watch the little wheel at the bottom right of the screen and turn off your DS when it has spun around eight times. Turn on your DS, load your game, and go back into the GTS. Note: The number of turns required for this to be successful depends on your internet speed and strength of connection. Eight turns is the average so you have to figure out your number of turns yourself by trial and error. To do this first, try eight turns then check the following outcomes. If eight is too early, try eight and a half, then eight and a quarter, etc. After that, every time you want to clone something, use that number of turns. The following are three possible outcomes after turning your DS on again:

  • A "Game Corrupted" message appeared and when you went into the GTS, it said "Deposit Pokemon". This means that you turned off the DS too early. Try turning your DS off later.

  • It loaded normally but when you went into the GTS, it said "Summary". This means that you turned off the DS too late. Try turning your DS off later. Also, be sure to take back the Pokemon and exit the GTS before you can try again.

  • A "Game Corrupted" message appeared and when you went into the GTS, it said "Summary". This means you have successfully duplicated your Pokemon and you should have the Pokemon in your party and in GTS at the same time. Take back the duplicated Pokemon from the GTS and leave. The duplicated Pokemon will also be holding a copy of whatever item the original was holding, so use this trick to also duplicate items such as Masterballs.

Walking through obstacles glitch

Look on your map and go to a place near the end of the map with areas you cannot reach or go any further. First, ride your bike through a Route and encounter some Pokemon. Defeat some, catch some, run away from some, or damage a Pokemon's health once and run away. As soon as you hit the water's edge or an area that cannot be walked on (for example, trees or a stone platform), save the game. When you return to your game, immediately press the direction facing the obstacle that could not be walked or ran through to start running through the objects. The top screen will indicate that you have reached a place called "Mystery Zone” and there will be faint music playing, like that of the area where the PalPark is located. You might may bump into something but keep holding the D-pad and you will eventually get through. You will soon reach the game's limits where there is only infinite black abyss. Note: This is very difficulty to do, will require multiple attempts, and is not guaranteed to work with every game.

Roaming Legendaries hint

Two Pokemon that roam the map in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl are Mesprit and Cresselia. To catch them, raise a Pokemon with a high Speed rating and the False Swipe attack to at least level 50. Use the Marking Map on your Poketch to find the Pokemon and battle it. Use False Swipe and, assuming your Pokemon was fast enough, the roaming Pokemon will take damage before fleeing the battle. Keep finding it until the target is at 1 HP since it will retain the damage you inflicted each time you encounter it. Be sure to save the game after each encounter and have some Quick Balls. Also, make sure not to encounter it in an area that has a damaging weather effect, such as the northern blizzard area. You should also try to inflict a status problem on it that won’t kill it.

Hatching eggs quickly

  • If you have a Pokemon with the Magma Armor or Flame Body ability in your party, it will cut the hatch time in half.

  • If you have a Pokemon egg and are waiting for it to hatch, it will hatch after 10,250 steps. The best place to get a lot of steps is in Amity Square. By doing this, you are able to collect something from the Pokemon that you are walking after every 200 steps.

  • In Solaceon Town, get on the far right side of the path next to the Pokecenter. Then, ride your bike in the fastest gear up and down until you hit a tree or mountain and repeat. You must have done at least 400 steps each "lap" to get an egg to hatch more quickly.

Bury at least fifteen spheres that you do not mind keeping buried for a long time to get a huge selection of digging spots. If you keep the spheres buried, the walls will always be full of treasures and spheres every day.

Finding Turnback Cave

Turnback Cave is only available after getting the National Dex and is located in Spring Path (the fourth and secret lake of Sinnoh) on Route 214. The legendary Ghost/Dragon type Pokemon Giratina can be found here. Turnback Cave is actually a randomly generated maze consisting of square-shaped rooms with four doors, one on each side, along with some rocks. Whenever you enter a room, it is practically impossible to turn back to it (hence the name). There are special rooms with pillars where the goal is to pass through three of these pillars located randomly every time you enter into another room, before entering into a total of thirty rooms. If you are lucky enough to pass through three of these pillars, you will find a room with a huge pillar and a wild level 70 Giratina standing in the center. Once you catch/defeat it, take any door from the room to go the main room, in which you have the option of leaving the cave through the door at the south in front of the stone tablet, or to try to generate the map again to get to the room in which Giratina was found. Giratina will not appear again, but there are rare items you can get from the room. Depending on the criteria, you will get a certain item or event:

Cross through thirty rooms in total without achieving to cross through three pillar rooms No Item; get to the starting room.
Cross through three pillar rooms and any other room Rare Bone (can be sold in the Pokemart for as much as a Nugget).
Cross through three pillar rooms and not any other room Reaper's Cloth (used to evolve Dusclops into Dusknoir).

All starter Pokemon hint

To get all the starter Pokemon, you will need Honey and must have access to Veilstone City. Having Fly makes this easier. Put the Honey on a tree and wait six to twelve hours, then return to possibly find a Munchlax. Catch it if it appears, or repeat the process if it does not.  Note: Make sure it is a female. Once you have a female Munchlax, evolve it via friendship. Once you have a Snorlax, give it a Full Incense (obtained in Veilstone City) and place it in the Daycare with any Pokemon on its egg list; some of which include Bastiodon, Sheildon, Cranidos, Rampardos, Snover, Gible, Gabite, or Garchomp). Note: Its egg type is "monster". When you return, there should be an egg. Take the egg but leave the couple in the Daycare. A Munchlax will hatch from the egg. Repeat the process to acquire more Munchlax's. Then, go to GTS in Jubilife City and put the Munchlax up for trade. You can put him up for any Pokemon; people tend to give starters for them. Note: This also works with Pokemon Leaf Green or Fire Red with a Snorlax and Pal Park available.

Surf Glitch (Japanese version)

This glitch only works on Japanese versions and allows you to enter the "empty" Mystery Zone that fills the voids in the game's geography, allowing you to obtain the Nintendo Event-only legendary Pokemon Darkrai and Shaymin. (The promotions for these Pokemon have passed, so this glitch is required to get them without trading.) You will need access to the Elite Four and Pokemon with Surf and Fly or Teleport. In Aaron's room, face the southern door and use Surf to go through the door. When done, you will go through, now easily able to move around to New Moon Island and the Flower Paradise in the game where you can find and capture Darkrai and Shaymin as you would any Pokemon. Once done, you need to Fly/Teleport elsewhere because you cannot able to leave after that, since the events were not properly triggered. But, otherwise, the Pokemon will function as normal; the only thing to note is that obtaining the Event items for these Pokemon later will not regenerate them, and failing when using the glitch is the same as failing as normal: you only get one shot.

Rating 3

Pokemon ability combination hint

Pokemon abilities play a large role. Combine move sets with abilities to be able to perform excellent combos. An example is having an Onix with the moves Screech, Double-Edge, Slam, and Stealth Rock and the ability Rock Head. Begin with Stealth Rock, then Screech to lower your opponent's Pokemon Defense. Then, hit them with either Slam or Double-Edge. Due to Rock Head, Double-Edge will not damage Onix.

Level up an egg

To successfully execute this glitch, you must first perform the Pomeg Berry Glitch, which involves using a Pomeg Berry on a Pokemon with 1 or 2 HP so that its HP loops to 65,535 (displayed as ?35 in-game). Do the glitch, but instead with only one Pokemon and an Egg in the party, making sure the Egg in the top-leftmost slot of the party in the Pokemon menu. Once done, you can then enter battles and use the Pokemon Egg as if it were a normal Pokemon.

It will function as a normal Pokemon: you can view the stats it will have upon hatching, it can level-up by defeating Pokemon, it can learn new moves, and can even evolve. You can also alter the Pokemon inside the Egg in otherwise-illegitimate ways. For example, Pikachu cannot normally know Thunder when hatching from an Egg at Level 5. However, with this glitch Pikachu can. Similarly, you can hatch Eggs with fully-evolved Pokemon.

Ghosts in the Old Chateau

Go to the Old Chateau, which is located in Eterna Forest at the top, near Eterna City. Cut is needed to reach this. Once inside, go through the door on the ground floor directly ahead of you. In there is a dining room where you'll see the ghost of an old man walk past the table to the left, towards the kitchen. Once he has left your screen, go to the kitchen to see that he is not there. To see him again, or if he didn't appear the first time, keep exiting and re-entering the room until he appears. To see a little girl ghost, return to the main hall and go upstairs and through the door in the center (in the same place as the dining room door, but a floor up). Enter the door next to the door on the far right. If there is a picture in the room with red eyes, you entered the correct location. You can see the ghost of a girl in the room next to you (which can be seen from where you are). She will look around and float out the door. When you go back onto the landing, she is not there, nor will you be able to see her if you go into her room. As before, if she did not appear the first time or you want to see her again, repeatedly enter to room until she appears. You can also find an item exclusive to the Old Chateau, the "Old Gateau", which heals all status problems of a Pokemon. It is located in one of the bins on the ground floor.

Pokemon Contest hint

For the Visual Round, always follow the theme. For example, if the theme is "The Colorful", put in two different colored puffs, the mustache, the flag, and the glitter. The glitter is the best one. For the Dancing Round, when you are first, try "left" and "front" close together. Then, after a long period of time, hit "right". Two Pokemon might miss, and the other one will do well on every move. Note: The following requires three moves in the same category of the contest. For the Acting Round, choose your strongest move first, followed by weak move and another weak move. End it with your strongest move again. If you use a move prior to the category, such as "Sweet Kiss" in "Cuteness", the judge you perform for will give you Voltage, unless somebody already performed for that judge. If only you performed for a certain judge (for example, if you performed to Dexter and everybody else performed to Keira), you will get three hearts. If you perform for a judge that others performed for (for example, if you and another Pokemon perform for Jordan and the others perform for Dexter and Keira), you will only receive 1 heart. When you win, you will receive a ribbon.

Increase the Odds of Shiny Pokemon

Before the release of Pokemon X/Y in 2013 there was a 6 in 65,536 chance to find one, and 12 in 65,536 after: these odds are commonly rounded to 1 in 8,192 and 1 in 4,096, respectively. However, to increase the odds of finding Shiny Pokemon to as high as 1 in 1,366 you will need Pokemon from two different real-world regions. For example, a Raichu from the U.S. and a Ditto from Japan. When you breed them together in a daycare, the child (usually the female of the Pokemon being bred) is much more likely to be Shiny than normal, a process commonly referred to as the "Masuda Method".

Duplicating items

This trick requires a Pokemon that knows "Thief," and a Ditto. Enter a double battle with an item-less Ditto and a Pokemon holding the item you want to duplicate.

Rhyperior (#464)

Magmortar (#467)
Import Magby or Magmar, or catch Magby on Route 227 or Stark Mountain with Pokemon Leaf Green in your DS. Trade Magmar while holding Magmarizer to get Magmortar.

Togekiss (#468)
Import Togepi or Togetic, or catch Togepi on the small island on Route 230 using Pokeradar. It is rare but easily caught with Max Repels. Use a Shiny Stone on your Togetic to get Togekiss.

Rotom (#479)
Go to Eterna Forest, and enter the Old Chateau. Find the television that is flashing, and interact with it until it asks you if you want to thwump the television. Do so, and Rotom will apear. There is only one, and it is level 15. Either bring low levels or very high ones, and just use Ultra Balls.

Heatran (#485)
After getting the National Dex and defeating the Elite Four, go to Stark Mountain. Go inside the mountain, and travel with Buck. Go to the end of the mountain, and he will take the Magma Stone. Exit the cave, and fly to the Staging Area. Go inside one of the normal houses, and talk to Buck. He will return the stone. Go back to Stark Mountain, and go to where Buck took the Magma Stone.

Its Slow Start ability cuts its Attack and Speed in half for five turns after each time it is switched into battle. Its final attack is at level 100. For Isgiga Impact, just buy the TM if desired. Go to the Move Tutor, and Regigigas can learn all the punches.

Giratina (#487)

After getting the National Dex and defeating the Elite Four, go to the Spring Path off Route 214 that opened up. Go into the cave, and find your way to Giratina. It is a level 70 Ghost-Dragon type with powerful stats and moves. It learns Lucario's Aura Sphere for its final move at level 90.

Do so, then go deep into the island and look at Cresselia. It runs off, and you must use the Marking Map Poketch to find and capture it as if it were Mesprit. It is a level 50 Psychic type and has surprisingly good stats all around for a level 50. It learns three signature moves at levels 66, 75, and 84. Its final move is Psychic at level 99.

Phione (#489)

Darkrai (#491)
Darkrai is only obtained through a hack or a special item from a licensed Nintendo event. Use the item, then sleep in some hotel. You will wake up on an island, and you then can try to catch Darkrai.

It puts both enemy Pokemon to sleep with 90% accuracy.

Shaymin (#492)
Shaymin is only obtained through a hack or a special item from a licensed Nintendo event. Use the item to go to Flower Paradise to find Shaymin. You must capture it there.

Arceus (#493)
Arceus is only obtained through a hack or a special item from a licensed Nintendo event. If you get this item, go to Spear Pillar's Hall Of Origin, and use it. It will produce a staircase.

It has very good stats and is a Normal-type. Its ability allows it to change type, based on what Plate it is holding. For example, if it holds Dragon Plate, it is a Dragon-type. Its final skill is at 100, Judgment. Judgment's type is based on what plate you have equipped. It does 100 with 100 ACC and 10 PP.

Treat your Pokemon with love to increase friendship points. Never let them die and always use a potion if they are injured. Also give them special treats such asProtein, Iron, Carbos, etc. Never give them bitter healing items. Placing them in your PC Boxes for a long time or in the Day Care doesn't affect the friendship points of your Pokemon, nor does leveling them up with Rare Candies.

Evolving Pokemon by trading

To easily evolve Pokemon that can only be evolved by trading is to use the Global Trade Station . Fly to Jubilife City, and go to the Global Trade Station. Talk to the woman at the counter, save the game, and enter. Select "Deposit", then deposit the Pokemon that you wish to evolve. Request a Pokemon that is great such as level 100 female Piplups. Seek a desired Pokemon. Once you have found any Pokemon that you can trade for, trade it. After you have successfully made a trade, go to "Summary", and take back your Pokemon. As soon as they come back, they will evolve, just like when someone trades them to you. This trick will work on all Pokemon that evolves by trades.

Pomeg Berry glitch

First make sure you have a Pomeg Berry and a Pokemon who has not had their HP lowered as much as possible already through Pomeg Berries. (If the latter is the case, the use of HP Ups on the Pokemon will be enough.) Get the Pokemon to a very low level of HP (1 or 2 HP). Once done, in the field, use the Pomeg Berry on the Pokemon. This will in turn cause the data in their HP to cycle back to the top of the counter, giving the affected Pokemon 65,535 HP--almost 90 times the possible maximum in the game.
