    Is there a specific AR code or some other method of obtaining your Secret ID in pokemon diamond/pearl? Because you need this ID for pokesav to get rid of the "apparently" in front of caught at/hatched on the pokemon summary.

    Please, if anybody knows, post the AR code or other way to find your secret ID.

    Secret IDs are a back-up ID. It backs up the Trainer ID if two people have the same ID (Which is unlikely), but possible. Other then that, I don't think it has another use.

    Secret IDs vastly increase the number of possible IDs available. If only the primary ID existed, there would only be 100,000 possible IDs. (00000 - 99999) Surely, there are more than 100,000 people playing these games. However, with two IDs, there are 10,000,000,000 possible combinations. (Not to mention, it also checks your trainer name and gender.) With that many possibilities, the chances of any two people matching are infinitesimal.

    (For reference, I live in the US; we use commas for thousands and dots for decimals, if this post confused anyone who does it the other way around.)
