How to Catch Rare Pokemon
How to Catch Rare Pokemon By: Pokemon #1 Fan ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Hi everyone! In this FAQ, I'm going to tell you how to catch all of the rare Pokemon. I'll do it in whatever order I feel like cuz I just wrote down the Pokemon I saw in my PC. I'll just start out with the Pokemon on the covers of Diamond and Pearl version: Palkia and Dialga! Palkia/Dialga - Atop Mt. Coronet, after battling Team Galactic Grunts, Command- ers, and the Boss, Cyrus, Dialga or Palkia (depending on your version: Diamond or Pearl) will have been awakened. After Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf appear and stop it from helping Cyrus, its powers will stop and (after battling Cyrus) it will be waiting for you. Professer Rowan doesn't allow you to exit Mt. Coronet so stock up on Pokeballs. This is the fourth to worst time to use the Master ball. It is level 47. Be sure to save. Uxie/Mesprit/ - After defeating (or catching) Palkia or Dialga, the three will Azelf go back to their homes at each lake across Sinnoh. To catch Uxie, battle him in Lake Acuity. To catch Azelf, battle him in Lake Valor. To catch Mesprit, meet it in its home at Lake Verity, then find it wildly in grass. They're all level 50. Be sure to save before each of the battles. Heatran - Once you obtain the National Pokedex, go to Stark Mountain. First, sail to the island Northeast of Veilstone City. Then travel north to the survival area. Then go halfway to the area that's calm and go up. Once you're in Stark Mountain, maneuver your way to the top with the mohawked person. They will take the stone and go away. Leave Stark Mountain and go back to the Survival Area and look for him in one of the houses. Then go back to the cave where Buck (the mohawked person) retreived the stone. It is level 70. Be sure to save before the battle. Regigigas - Once you get the National Pokedex and have the data for all the Regis (Regice, Regirock, Registeel), he will be awaken. To get to him, go to Snowpoint Temple in Snowpoint City and go up. He will be north. He is level 70. Be sure to save before you battle him. Giratina - Once you have the National Pokedex, you will be able to travel to go to Turnback Cave. It's positioned just east of Route 214. Maneuver your way through the cave until you see a gigantic, millapede, scorpion looking thing. It is level 70. Be sure to save before you battle it. Cresselia - Once you get the National Pokedex, go to Canalave City. Go and examine the boy in the bed in the house next to the sailor who sails you to Iron Island. Then talk to that sailor and ask if you can go to Full Moon Island. Once you see Cresselia, it will disappear and appear randomly like Mesprit. Pick up the item it leaves behind and leave. When you spot it, she is level 50. The gender is always a girl. You don't need to save unless you want to be safe. Phione and - Manaphy (aka: Prince of the Sea) is obtained from a special Manaphy event from Pokemon Ranger. Obtain the Manaphy and you will receive an egg. After a while, it will hatch into a baby level 1 Manaphy. Manaphy is able to breed and when you get the other egg, it will hatch into a Psuedo-Manaphy (baby of it), aka: Phione, the weaker version of Manaphy. NOTE! THE FOLLOWING POKEMON ARE OBTAINED ONLY FROM LIVE EVENTS!! Darkrai - Once you obtain the MEMBERSHIP PASS at the event, you will get access to a hotel you couldnt previously go to. Sleep there during the night and you will have a dream of Darkrai. Once you wake up, you will find a diary telling you of the location of Darkrai. Talk to the sailor and he'll take you to his location. He is level 40. Be sure to save before the battle. He is the third to worst Pokemon to use the Master Ball on. Shaymin - Once you receive OAK'S LETTER from the live event, go to the white rock in Route 224. You will notice the extended path and should follow the path upwards and enter the new way, named the Flower Paradise. Go all the way to the top right and you will find Shaymin waiting for you. It is level 30. This is the mere second to worst Pokemon to use the Master Ball on. Arceus - Once you obtain HEAVEN'S PIPE from the special event, go to the place where you had battled Dialga or Palkia. Go to the symbol between the pillars and use it. Stairs will appear and you will go up and find yourself in the Beginning Dimension. This is the best Pokemon to use the Master Ball on for it is level 80. Be sure to save before you battle it. And finally, this is one Pokemon even my friends haven't caught yet. And I bet you haven't either. It doesn't require and event and all you need to have is the HM Cut. It's name is Roton: Roton - To go to Roton, go to the Old Chateau located in Eterna Forest. Go upstairs, foward, and to the room where the T.V. is. Save and turn off the Game until it's nightime on your Pokemon game. Once it is, Turn it back on and Examine the T.V. screen. It should say something like,"It looks like there's a Pokemon in the screen....Thump the T.V. screen?" After the sentence close to that, say yes and you should hear this spooky sound. You will see this plasma looking thing. Roton is level 15. This is far by the worst Pokemon to use the Master Ball on. I caught it with a Great Ball. And that's all the rare Pokemon I could think of. I'll catcha later... ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
