How to obtain a Manaphy and a Phione
This is a Pokemon that has been newly introduced into the Pokemon series. However, you cannot obtain it in Diamond or Pearl. You can, however, obtain its egg in Pokemon Ranger. Here's how to do it: After you have beaten the game you need to go to the Ranger Net on the main screen of Pokemon Ranger. Once on the Ranger Net Screen, hold down R, X, and the left button on the D-Pad to access a password screen. Enter this password on the screen: P8M2-9D6F-43H7 and a new mission will appear that says: Rescue the Egg. Now once the game has been beaten you can access the mission on the Ranger Net. RESCUE THE EGG WALKTHROUGH: The mission starts out with a cut sceen of a guy who finds an egg along the beach. It is a blue looking egg and is different looking than the regular looking eggs that you obtain at the Daycare Center. He decides to take it to the Professor. When he takes it to the Professor, and he starts talking about it, then he walks out. He is then ambushed by the Go-Squad. Your mission is to save the egg from the Go-Squad. Your mission starts at the entrance of Lila Forest. Go straight ahead to see that the path is blocked. To the left is a Politoed. Capture it and use its water power the blast the rocks. The rocks appear to be Gravelers. There are three of them that belong to a Go-Squad member and you must capture them all. It's a bit tough, but be patient. Keep moving around and you will have to battle a couple more Go-Squad members that have 4 Rattattas, 4 Zubats, and a Meowth and 2 Rattattas. Now you will need to capture a Swellow near a hallow tree and use it to blow out the Parasect in the ground which reveals another Go- Squad battle. This person has a Scyther. Capture it and proceed until you find another Go-Squad member with a Politoed and 3 Zubtas. Capture them and you will again be confronted by another member with 3 Rattattas. After this, head south to a canopy of trees where there is an alcove with the final team member. This guy is a tough guy because he has Venusaur and 2 Scythers. Capture the Scythers first then, the Venusaur. After you capture them, head back the way you came and the person will give you the egg and you will be back with the Professor. He starts to talk about how it is a Manaphy egg and in order for it to hatch, it must be sent to the faraway region of Sinnoh. He says he'll keep the egg until somebody from Sinnoh is willing to take it. GETTING THE EGG TO SINNOH: Transferring the egg to your Diamond and Pearl game is not as hard as it sounds. First you need to have a DS with the Pokemon Ranger game in, and antoher with Diamond or Pearl. On Diamond or Pearl, save the game inside a Pokemart and turn it off. Now on Pokemon Ranger, check on the egg in the Ranger Net and there will be an option to send and invitation. Send it and wait. Now on Diamond or Pearl, on the main screen there should be an option to Connect with Pokemon Ranger. Click it and you will receive the Manaphy Egg! Alright, now start the game in Diamond or Pearl from the last save point. Notice that you will not have the egg in your PC or Party. Before you get mad, exit the Pokemart and reenter. Next to the counter will be a guy that was not there before. Talk to him and if there is an empty space in your belt, he will give you the Manaphy Egg! Now just walk about 2,600 steps to hatch it. Don't worry, it will hatch differently, but that is normal. It will start to glow and stuff that is different than a normal Pokemon hatch. Now you will have a Manaphy. GETTING A PHIONE: Now that you have the legendary Manaphy, you can get its offspring, a Phione. This is the only legendary Pokemon that can breed and produce an egg. Note that you can only breed a Manaphy with a Ditto. After a while, they will have an egg. Hatch the egg for a Phione. IMPORTANT NOTES: You can only send a Manaphy over to Diamond or Pearl once, so take caution. If you ever get stuck or lost just e-mail me. I hope this came useful for you. Also please feel free to ask any Pokemon question you have!
