    Can anyone confirm my Theory?

    I have a Theory that Dusk Balls seam to be on Japan's Time,
    despite the GB's internal clock...

    Because, up until 2:00 PM in the afternoon, my dusk balls have amazing catching odds,
    But Using them anytime during the night, they have crappy catching odds.. They never work.

    I've checked and rechecked my GB's settings several times but they're all right....
    I just can't figure it out.

    Perhaps it's the Pokemon that you're trying to catch with them.

    Well, it was Terrakion, Cobalion, and Virizion who I've been doing.
    So, it's not like any other variables were in play while I was doing it.

    Well there's your problem. Those three Pokemon have pretty low catch rates to begin with, and Dusk Balls don't really improve your chances too much. If we use Veekun's Poke Ball Performance calculator, and assume that you're using Dusk Balls (at night or in a cave) on a Terrakion that's down to 2 HP and paralyzed, you still only have a 5.5% chance of catching it.

    Well, yeah but that's what I can't figure out.
    At night, Dusk Balls have a 1.5% chance of Catching.
    But before 2:00 PM in the Afternoon, that seams more closer to 10%.
    (this after continuously resetting on each of these 3 over the course of several days.)

    So, either I have the most messed up luck or this game has a odd sense of humor.
    Either way, it's not very funny.

    Not sure if the right place to post. Has anyone used the pokemon dream radar? What is it like? Do you actually catch pokemon hard to get in-game?

    I got a question about Pokemon who get in the Dream World.

    Onix with Weak Armor. If you evolve it,
    does it's hidden Ability become Shear force?
    Or do you have to find a Steelix with Sheer Force on it's own?


    Also, this may be subjective, but what should I look for in the Dream World
    in terms of what Pokemon I should keep an eye out for and where I should look?
    I only ask because I can rack-up a lot of Pokemon in the Tree
    but they all seam (to me) to have terrible hidden abilities and never have their Dream moves.

    An Onix with Weak Armor will indeed evolve into a Sheer Force Steelix as Pokemon that have ther hidden abilities retain them when they evolve.

    As for what to look for in the Dream World, it's up to what you're looking for. Some people collect Pokemon with Hidden Abilities, while others may look for specific Pokemon for competitive battling or Female Pokemon for breeding or even just Pokemon to help them complete their Pokedex.

    Well, that's what I've been doing, just grabbing up older dex Pokemon
    But since I found out you could get dozens of Pokemon in the Dream tree,
    I discovered that my new problem was to decide which I would take
    So I figured I'd sort out the ones with useless hidden abilities first.

    But I guess I'm just trying to find something special while I'm at it too,
    something I might actually use one day.

    I have the Dream Radar on my 3DS. It's pretty fun. Basically, you use the 3DS's AR camera to look around the room and shoot clouds with orbs. When you shoot darker clouds, they'll release a special glowing orb that you can shoot for a chance to get Pokémon or items. Rarer Pokémon have orbs that move faster, attack back more often, or phase in and out.

    The controls are fairly simple. Move the 3DS around to look around the area, and press A to shoot (holding down A produces a continuous beam that is useful for wearing down Pokémon or items you're trying to capture). The only thing that bugs me is that sometimes the Pokémon (especially the Kami trio and other legendaries) will sometimes keep moving higher and higher, so you have to crane your neck upwards to try to catch them (or wait for them to come back down, if you have enough time).

    If you want to know the types of Pokémon you can catch, check out this page. Note that all Pokémon caught in the Dream Radar will have their hidden ability (except Rotom, but only because Rotom has no hidden ability).

    Hello! I bought Pokemon Diamond a few days ago, I would like to learn any basic knowledge that I should have before going on, such as a pokemon I might not want to miss from the beginning, any "one time" events and stuff like that. Not any major spoilers, just simple things to have in mind. I just defeated the first gym leader. So far I have a Kadabra, Monferno, Machop, Starly, Bidoof (I heard it's a good pokemon to teach HM's) and a Luxio, should I start a thread for this? I would like to continue asking questions about the game.

    @Vil; To answer your question, threads like this are the best place to ask game questions, not individual threads. We have a Simple Questions/Simple Answers thread for older games, so any questions are best placed in that thread. It can be found here.

The last Pokemon game I played was Emerald and that was over 5 years ago, so I'm pretty rusty with the whole game mechanics, weaknesses, stats, breeding, etc. Thanks!

    Do you have any specific questions about breeding, game mechanics and such?
