I know I've made it pretty clear on more than one occasion how much I loath this game. But I finally have some free time on my hands and I'm determined to get that Ho-Oh. But I have a few questions before I take on the final bosses so I don't mess things up anymore than they already are in this game.
1) So I'm at the last part of the game where you have to fight about 6 trainers in a row. I managed to beat 3 out of the first 4 trainers. The only thing is that I knocked out the 4th trainers Shadow Pokemon before he beat me. If I were to challenge them again, will that Shadow Pokemon be there again or did I just ruin my save file forever?
2) I've been told that in order to get Ho-Oh after beating the Mt. Battle 100 Trainer challenge and purifying all of the Shadow Pokemon, you have to use Pokemon from your story-mode file. But I also know that after I beat the final boss I can trade between the GBA games and Colosseum. So my question is, does it count if I use Pokemon from the story mode that I traded into the game?
I'd appreciate the help. Thank you.
