Pokemon Platinum
« on: November 17, 2016, 20:52 »
I've started to play Pokemon Platinum. I chose Piplup as my starter. I would've chosen Turtwig, but I would probably end up not evolving it. I don't know what I'll encounter or catch (I'm open to suggestions!) I'll probably have Giratina on my team! I like the look of Porygon Z, but I can't trade (nor can I cheat!)

I'll probably play Black and Black 2.

Starly and its evolutions are pretty good and easy to obtain. I would also suggest Machop/Machoke, Drifloon, Gastly/Haunter, and the Budew line. They aren't to hard to get although Drifloon is once a week. But Drifloon is easy to get to unlike the Lapras in Union Cave where you had to use Surf and Strength and go down a few floors. Drifloon is found outside the Valley Works building on Friday.

I was thinking of getting a Starly!

Which should I get?

Shinx or Pachirisu?

How do you even pronounce Pachirisu???

I would've got Lucario, but if I remember correctly, someone said it's available late and you have to raise it from level 1!

Id say get shinx, i have a lot of love for that line and you can get it really early on. (Also pretty sure its patch-ur-ees-u.)

Lucario is a pain to get and raise, but its also amazingly useful. I got mine just before the 7th gym, trained it up and it pretty much handled the entire gym for me.

Yeah. The process to get Lucario is tedious and it's a shame that it is found so late I the game. Rotom can also be useful and not too hard to find. Sadly you can only get one in each play through.

unluckily, sinnoh is horrible for fire types. if you don't pick Chimchar at the start, your only choices before the postgame are Rapidash and Houndoom. I'd recommend picking up a houndour at Route 214 if you want a fire type. You can pick up Rotom by talking to a TV in the Old Chateau, but it's alternate forms are for some reason only obtainable with an event item.

I would've got Lucario, but if I remember correctly, someone said it's available late and you have to raise it from level 1!

Yeah, Riolu is gotten from an egg from Riley after you clear Iron Island, (keep an empty party space for that) and Riolu evolves from happiness, only during the daytime. prepare for a lot of grinding if you want that Lucario. The VS seeker is better than wild mons, but i don't remember if you get that before the  postgame. :///

Didn't notice, mostly because of this guy.
