Pokemon Platinum is hard! This is something that absolutely needs to be said. Cynthia, the League Champion of this game, actually has all of her Pokemon around level 60. Level 60!

Pokemon Platinum [6] – The Sunyshore Gym and the Victory Road

Beating Cyrus and Getting Rid of Team Galactic So last time in Pokemon Platinum, I beat the gym and was ready to tackle the final of the three Lakes – Lake Acuity. I didn’t really tackle it though. There was no battling to be had. Instead, my rival actually turned out to be a nice, normal guy and I was sent to the Team Galactic base in Veilstone City. Once there, I fought through the …

Pokemon Platinum [5] – The Iron Island, Canalave and Snowpoint

Pokemon Platinum [5] – The Iron Island, Canalave and Snowpoint

Last time in Pokemon Platinum, I played for about ten minutes at night, just to level Gligar to Gliscor. What I didn’t mention in the edit of my last article, though, was that I also allowed the game to troll me a bit while I was at it. You see, there is a guard at the entrance to Canalave City. When you talk to him, he says he’s thirsty. Pokemon veterans know what happened here. …

Pokemon Platinum [4] – Pastoria Gym and Celestic Town

I tried to be smart, so I flew to Hearthome City as soon as I loaded up Pokemom Platinum today, hoping to take a shorter route to Pastoria, but it turns out that route was closed. I had to go back to Veilstone, south past Valor Lakefront and then east to get to Pastoria. Pastoria Gym At first glance, Pastoria seems like one of those tiny little towns you get between gyms in Pokemon games, …

Pokemon Platinum [2] – From Eterna Gym to Hearthome City

Pokemon Platinum [2] – From Eterna Gym to Hearthome City

Last time in Pokemon Platinum, I got to Eterna City and saved my game. Aipom, Turtwig and Pikachu were ready for the gym and I already caught a Buizel to replace Aipom once Gardenia’s Gym was beaten. Eterna Gym would have been easy if I could have used Chimchar, but since Ash was being an idiot in the anime, I had to be an idiot to. Luckily, Pikachu knows Iron Tail, so at least I …

Pokemon Platinum [1] – The Beginning, The First Gym and to Eterna City

Before the Oreburgh Gym As I already said in my previous posting, I had to get to Sandgem town in Pokemon Platinum, to be able to properly form my starting party with PokeSav. I started out with Pikachu, Aipom, picked Turtwig as my starter and also added Chimchar. I then made my way towards Jubilife City, where I talked to Dawn and met Looker, the “bonus” character of Pokemon Platinum, who introduced me to the …

Pokemon Platinum [0] – How to Follow Ash – The Plan

With the choice of my next game in the “follow Ash” Pokemon challenge being between Pokemon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum, I decided to go with Platinum, mostly because I’m assuming it’s the most polished and full-featured of the three. As with Pokemon Ruby, I decided to do the research beforehand and make a proper plan of attack. How to Follow Ash in Pokemon Platinum Ash’s Pokemon in the Sinnoh Region Other than Pikachu, Ash primarily …

Pokèmon Platinum, Part 4 [COMPLETED]

I went to all three lakes and fought Team Galactic commanders there. Afterwards, I had to follow them to the Galactic HQ and defeat the boss there. For defeating him, he gave me a Master Ball. I followed him to Mt. Coronet, where he opened a portal to another world. In there, I fought Giratina. I reloaded my game several times to try and catch it with a Dusk Ball, but after about 40 of …
