There's not many Fire Pokemon in this are there?
Got to second gym and now hunting down a fire - just seems to be Ponyta? (Eurgh)

 

 

This is why I went with Chimchar as my starter. It's a tough gen for fire Pokémon I think.

I've fought a trainer with a Ponyta, and seen someone catching Magby in the underground area on a stream. I saw a Houndoom down there, but there was no way my team could have dealt with it at the time.

 

But that's all I can think of, because it was 15 years ago that I played the game. Once upon a time I could have told you exactly when and where to hunt, but those days are long behind me ...

 

I annihilated that gym with a Staravia, btw. You can probably clear it with any half-decent bug, too.

Oh boy... The Grand Underground post-game is pure digital crack.

 

Spoiler

I ran into (and captured) a Bulbasaur earlier, so it seems Pokémon from earlier games are down here. It looks like whichever statues you have out on display in your base modifies the spawn rates.

 

Games with rare spawns are my kryptonite. I should probably back off now before it's too late, before burning my copy of the game in the woods somewhere.

Good as underground main game feels underwhelming 

 

Are Pokemon there still matches to your level?

Boo. That's my least favourite bit - especially if they have shite moves.

Presumably breeding is the way to get low level ones to raise :( 

 

Indeed. That's why I'm glad you can see them instead of being lumped with random battles, and can actively avoid any that aren't on your list.

Gang I need your help, so I’ve beat the Elite 4 and become Champion, it seems that the next thing to do is complete the Dex to unlock the National Dex and with it, hundreds of new Mon, apparently you only have to view each of the 151 Pokémon to unlock the National Dex and I have already seen about 145 of them, one I can’t figure out how to see though…..Prinplup, I started with Turtwig so my Rival had Chimchar, I’ve seen Piplup and Empoleon but the middle evolution I just can’t find anywhere, and I can’t catch a Piplup to evolve one myself! Is the only way through trading?

 

I don’t really understand trading in this, I much preferred the GTS system in some older games where you could leave a Pokémon, ask for another and eventually someone would trade you

I'm well stuck on this

 

I need to get to route 217 to obtain TM Rock climb.

 

Only problem is - I need Rock climb to climb up inside Mount Coronet in order to get to Route 217.

 

Its a total chicken and egg situation

 

Does anybody know how to solve this riddle? Please help!

Should just be able to follow this map through Mount Coronet to get to route 216 and from there fairly easy to get to route 217. I imagine if you are needing to use Rock Climb inside then you're going the wrong way at that point in the game to get through it.

I think this will be the final Mystery Gift for legendary Pokemon. With Arceus available via Legends connectivity and Shaymin already distributed this completes all the legendaries that were available with the original releases of the games.
