    i understood so little of that!

    - whats a sweeper?
    - SpA? - guessing special ability count goes up by 2?
    - STAB'd?
    - proper ev speed?

    would really appreciate a few tips on what it all means!

    Hes talking about competitive pokemon. For the hardcore battlers(maybe).

    Sweeper => Speed attackers (?)
    SpA => Special Attack stat
    STAB is on some move where they pierce defense(?)..something like that.
    EV => Effort Values -> a means of boosting your stats
    So for a Mix Sweeper, they want Attack, SpA, and some Speed(maybe).

    Well...

    Mixed sweeper = Pokemon that can take out teams, or least dent them (so fast + powerful, mixed means both special attacks and physical attacks)
    STAB=>Same type attack bonus. It's mentioned by an NPC in D/P, if you use a move that has the same type as the Pokemon the power is multiplied by 1.5
    EV=>something like that (http://www.psypokes.com/lab/evguide.php)
    +2=>Two stages. Twice as much as say, Calm Mind, which is one stage. http://www.psypokes.com/lab/stats.php is more detailed

    Have people been realising the greatness of the Underground?

    It's freaking awesome, useful and fun (with friends)

    You can find fossils, items and equipment too.

    I've found 3 Firestones, An Everstone (right name? i'm talking about the evolution prevention stone), A Round stone (happiny evolve), skull fossils, Steel Ball, And more.

    Oh and I REALLY wish that you could register more than one item at a time (for L or R buttons) because it's really annoying having to go into my bag all the time, because i always have bike registered (dur!)

    is it not possible to capture another npc's pokemon from them? Every time I use a pokeball, it gets swatted away and they always say: dont be a thief! BTW, ive never played any pokemon games ever before i tried Pearl for the first time. Im not sure how this all works.

    The first pattern in the Unknown cavern reads:
    Top Right
    Lower Left
    Top Right
    Top Left etc....
    I hope this is a start for you in recognizing the letters they repressent.Its quite easy...

    There was a cheat code for past games that lets you steal the NPC's pokemon.

    Anyway training for the E4. Any level recommendations? Mine right now are low 50s. Training at Victory Road is a pain. [​IMG] .

    In the older games there was a code to capture other trainer's pokemon. I doubt such a code exists now.

    The red dot that moves around for a little bit then starts back to it's first position? That just shows you where you were last located at and where you went.

    1) That's what I meant.You can not do that now unless somebody hacks the rom but still it is difficult.At the moment it is not possible...

    2) I think you are right.I did some testing about it and its probably exactly what you said.
    Thanks!

    To add, Gyarados has a high special defense so even though it's supposedly double weak to electric pokemon (it being a water and flying type) it can survive most powerful electric attacks like it wasn't even weak against it at all. The old bad thing about this pokemon is it's speed but having it equip Quick Claw might compensate a bit for that.

    Still, a visual list of all 26 would be nice
