    Crazy question... Is there a way to import (for lack of better term) from the GBA games to the DS games?

    ^Yes, but you need a DS or DS Lite and the reverse is impossible (which means that the removal of those pokemon from the gba games is permanent)

    Has anyone got the shiny Pichu (the Pikachu coloured one)? I want one but I can't seem to get one. :(

    Ok there's only a few days left, so you are best doing this now if you are able to.

    You need Diamond Pearl or Platinum any DS console and a wireless internet connection (or a Nintendo USB connector)

    First load up your game and go to the third floor of jublife tv station, there will be an interviewer who will ask you two questions. answer the first question EVERYONE HAPPY, and the second Wi-Fi CONNECTION, mystery gift will now be unlocked, so save your game.

    Next make sure you are connected to the internet.If you haven't connected before, on the menu screen after the title screen will be a NINTENDO WFC SETTINGS, follow the instructions here

    If you've already done this before with a different pokemon/item make sure that there is nothing else you haven't picked up at the pokemart and that you do not have more than 2 wonder cards. You can delete wonder cards on the MYSTERY GIFT options screen.

    Next in order to download the pikachu colored pichu, load up your game then select MYSTERY GIFT if you've never done this before you can go straight ahead and select RECEIVE GIFT the select GET VIA NINTENDO WFC, it should find Pichu and ask you if you want to download it. Pichu is now on your game.

    In order to get him go to any pokemart with an empty slot in your party and talk to the delivery man by the counter he will give you the pichu.

    This site tells you how to do what I've explained as well in less detail.

    I got as far as the Mystery Gift part and then failed. I had the option in the menu but I couldn't get my DS to access the internet and when I did it wouldn't find the Pichu.

    All is not lost though. I went to a shop that a friend owns and they have wireless internets there. He gave me the WEP key and I was able to get the Pichu.

    Picked up HeartGold the other day, I love the pokewalker, makes the game so much easier!

    Seriously, catching Pokemon with no need to buy pokeballs? Woohoo!

    I've also traded over all my guys from Pearl, so I now have Golem, Alakazam, and Steelix :cool:

    Could use some feedback on which direction to go/purge with my team (really just concerned with single player with them for the moment):

    Gastly (lvl 29): hypnosis, confuse ray, night shade, shadow ball
    --waiting 'til 33 and dream eater before hitting the evolutions

    Pikachu (lvl 22): thundershock, nasty plot, wish, thunderwave
    --waiting on thunderbolt to evolve

    Heracross (lvl 27): leer, horn attack, brick break, aerial ace
    --no real plans for this one. it just wrecks things.

    Croconaw (lvl 20): bite, leer, cut, surf
    --got it from the GTS, came with the 2 HMs on it and I can't delete them yet. Is somewhat of a half HM slave at this point unfortunately, due to the stupid cut.

    Quilava (lvl 28): quick attack, flame wheel, Smoke Screen, Ember
    --no direction for this one, but I'm fond of my starter.

    Togetic (lvl 35): headbutt, wish, extrasensory, yawn
    --will evolve when I get the stone for it and focus on SpA and flinching.
    -------------

    Alternatives I can breed and train up: larvitar, beldum, eevees with things I can find the stones for, dratini, chikorita, gen 1 starters.

    Togetic is only useful with serene grace, hustle is terrible

    Lapras is a good choice because it can hit heavy with surf and icebeam, and you get the chance to train it up for the large amounts of dragon trainers later in the game.

    Best HM slaves i've worked out are

    Charizard- Fly, Rock Smash, Headbutt, Cut
    Quagsire- Strength, Flash, Dig, Rock Smash
    Croconaw- Rock Climb, Surf, Whirlpool, Waterfall

    Charizard and Croconaw work well in the fields and Croconaw and Quagsire work well in the cave.

    Raichu is not that good really, if you can get hold of the right Tms Jolteon is alot better, Espeon is another good choice for Eevee, The others are a bit too slow.

    Gengar will probably be your best bet at catching the legendary pokemon as it has hyponosis and mean look plus a high speed stat, although doing this strategy will hinder its battling ability.

    My team so far is:

    Riolu - Lvl 34 - Drain Punch, Headbutt, Force Palm, something else.
    Pikachu - Lvl 49 - Thunder, Shockwave, Thunderbolt, Strength
    Croconaw - Lvl 37 (starter) - Surf, Whirlpool, Crunch, Cut?
    Alakazam - Lvl 47 - Psychic, Flash, Psycho Cut, Psybeam
    Golem - Lvl 47 - Rock Smash, Dig, Rock Throw, something else.
    Pidgeot - Lvl 35 - Gust, Fly, Sand Attack, something else.

    Just using these guys to get the badges & beat the elite 4. Then I'm after Raikou, Suicune etc. And because I have had to spend less time grinding through the levels, I'll be able to try and catch them all.

    So I own 13 Pokemon games: Red, Blue, Yellow, Stadium, Snap, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Sapphire, Emerald, Platinum (my Diamond died), and now HeartGold, which I purchased three days ago and have logged 25 hours of game time on. I would love to start sharing friend codes, but I must state this now...I have NEVER traded Pokemon with anyone before, so I've never completed a Pokedex (except for the normal one in Platinum). I have also never battled a human player except on Stadium. So...even though I started playing Pokemon back in 1999m I've always neglected this part of gameplay. This should end now. But I don't even know how to look up my friend code to give it to others, so if anyone could tell me how, I will look it up and give it to them. I currently have six badges in HeartGold and am going strong. I also have wi-fi at my house, but don't know how to connect it.

    Also, I do know how to use the dongle and Pal Park features, so I'm not entirely hopeless.:p

    To connect wirelessly from your DS, Nintendo's support site has a good step by step guide which can be found here.

    Note that you can only connect directly from the DS if your router uses no security measures or uses WEP, WPA or WPA2 isn't supported (WEP is an older security technology).

    If your router uses WPA then you would need to connect using the Nintendo WiFi dongle.

    Playing the game is now going to be much more satisfying...

    Not from a Jedi.

    (it was complicated and time consuming to turn myself into Lance--it's fortunate he has a backsprite available. There are a limited number of people who do: the rival, a green-haired lady (Cheryl?), the male and female characters from DPPt, the rival from DPPt, and of course the two characters from this game.

    Map sprites are easy and you can turn yourself into anyone with basic modding, or even just with action replay codes.

    I picked up Soul Silver and I'm loving it! [face_dancing]

    Has anyone tried out the wi-fi thing? I started a group called 'JCVG' but I'm not sure how the group thing works.

    For anyone who doesn't know yet, new versions announced, http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/

    Yes, these are legit. They will be for the DS. Not much else is known. There's speculation that this will be the swan song of the DS as well as a launch title of the 3DS much like Gold and Silver were for normal gameboy to gameboy color. That is, some bonus features and pretty graphics will be available when playing on the 3DS over the normal DS. Also speculation over how trading between 5th gen and 4th gen will go, most people are guessing that a time machine similar to what we had for RBY > GSC trades will be what is eventually settled on.

    Anyways, anyone else trying to complete the pokedex on HGSS? I have 300 at the moment. Gonna suck trying to get Celebi, Deoxys, and Jirachi without hacking. Arceus/Shaymin/Darkrai are easy enough because you can just hack the items then go catch them legitimately which leaves me with a clean conscience. I can get Mew from Pokemon Box though, which will be great.

    I'm going for the whole pokedex too. I have 31 so far but I haven't been playing it for that long. How can you get HG only pokemon in SS without trading and hacking? I didn't think you could. I wish I knew how to get the ones you mentioned.

    I have enough games and events to get everything except celebi and jirachi. Although some require permanent trade from generation III like groudon, rayquaza, latios and deoxys. Hopefully there will be enough future events or general fortune that will make it possible to complete my pokedex, whether I commit to finishing it is an entirely different matter.

    If you really want to complete the dex and get version exclusives/event legends without scouring random trade forums this is the answer I found

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=211989

    Basically, it lets you use your wifi connection in conjunction with the GTS to send .pkm files downloaded from the internet (or handmade if you're real hardcore) to your game cart. They even have a databank of event legend data, only one not included is Celebi because there hasn't been a celebi event for 4th gen games yet, but there's a japanese one coming up if you want to be a real goody two shoes.

    The method is even safe, MUCH safer than any other creative trick I've seen to do this, even action replay/pokesav. At absolute worst using the files from the main database at http://www.pkmdb.com/ you'll mess up and not get a pokemon, no change to your savefile.
