    So
    I am was a total newb on pokemon series. I decided to play pokemon for the first time on my 3ds and I have started the Omega Ruby version.

    God this game is so addictive!!! I have completed the story and the delta episode and now I am just roaming catching pokemons and leveling and I plan to start playing online when I max level my favorite pokemons!!

    Being totally newb I found out on the way that there are several pokemon that I cannot catch on my version and I want to learn how can I get them via trading or any other way? Why would someone send me a charmander for example? What would he expect from me to give him so he give me this pokemon? Also I read that you can receive a specific egg with the pokemon you want from someone and hatch it. How all those stuff work and where do I need to look to find others that will trade me the pokemons I want?

    Also is there any guide about which pokemons perform better on battles or tips for online battles etc?

    Basically any tips for pokemon omega ruby is welcome since I am really new to this game and I guess I have to learn a lot!!!

    To get any pokemon not in your version of the game, you have to trade with other people. Generally, you can get them easily enough by using the Global Trade Station, where you just ask for a pokemon in a certain level range and offer one of your own. If you offer something decent, you'll usually get a trade quickly enough. If you want, say, a charmander, you probably want to offer another starter in return.

    Yeah but since I want to gather all the pokemons how will I have a starter 2 times so I can give the one on a trade and keep the other for my self?

    Breed them. There's a day care somewhere in the game, and if you leave two compatible Pokemon there for a while (one male, one female), they will have an egg. Walk around to hatch the egg, and it'll contain a level 1 version of whatever species the female was. Also, protip: Ditto is compatible with everything other than legendaries (those can't breed).

    So I need a female starter and any other male pokemon placed on the day care and I will get an egg that will hatch to a same pokemon as the female?
    What would I do if my starters where males and don't have any female starters????

    Not quite. You need a female and male of the same egg group. Generally this means Pokemon that look roughly the same. As to the male thing, Ditto works a bit differently. You can pair Ditto with anything, male or female, and you'll get an egg of the other Pokemon. Ditto also ignores eggs groups, so it's really useful. One Ditto is all you need to breed anything, basically. So if you have a male starter, just use a Ditto.

    my dad works for nintendo.

    use a ditto, ditto is a pokemon that transforms into any pokemon, so he can "make babies" with every pokemon that can breed (legendaries can't breed) ditto is usually only used for "whore"

    if you preefer to breed NOT USING DITTO you can put a female and male pokemon on day care that are kinda similair and the old man will tell you if they are interested on each other

    if you want the easy mode here are 3 websites full of information that can help you with everything on pokemon
    http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Main_Page
    http://www.serebii.net/
    http://www.psypokes.com/

    just pick one of the websites, search the pokemon you want and it will tells you every info about it like with who he can breed


    if you want you can send me pm, and i will trade with you, just tell me the ones you want, i make eggs and give to you, if you whant you can even send me shit pokemon back

    To find ditto I read that you need to go to mirage cave or mirage island and walk on the grass and hope for him to appear. Does the dexnav show you that there is a pokemon missing in the area? Or it shows you that you have caught all the pokemon in this area and ditto is like an extra pokemon that doesn't affect dexnav? Also I found only mirage mountain atm. I have to wait for a different day or time of the day for mirage island or mirage cave to appear?

    my dad works for nintendo.
    gonna give you example how usefull theese sites can be just put the name of the pokemon on the search box:
    http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ditto_(Pokémon)

    scroll down till "game locations" it will tell you where to find ditto :D
    i may have a spare ditto on my pokemon x

    BTW when you get pokemon from other people, the pokemon will level up much faster than normal! if i give you a charmander you will be able to level up really fast

    you can also try wonder trade, on wonder trade you send a random pokemon and ge a random pokemon, its like a lottery, but people usually send bad pokemon xD i think you can even use wonder trade to trade eggs for eggs...

    there is also GTS (you put a pokemon and ask for other, or vice versa, this one is like a trading post, you put what you want and people will make offers

    there are 721 pokemons, some of them are unavailable (because you need nintendo events, but theese dont count to complete the national pokedex usually)
    there are so many, the majority you have to get them from older games (you can trade from a previous game to the next one)


    but its a more lot cooler to trade with friends :D


    btw in case you dont know, we reeefer to pokemon game pairs as generations... omega ruby and alpha saphira belong to generation and are the remakes of generation 3 (there is ruby and saphira for gameboy advance)

    so when people say gen 6, they mean the pokemon games that are released so far for the 3ds
    "alpha saphira"/"omega ruby", people reefer it as "ORAS"
    R/S/E ruby saphira and emerald
    D/P/PT diamond pearl and platinum
    etc...

    i hope this gave you a heads up about the pokemon culture xD

    it will affect.. if you missing ditto it will say...
    if you catch all the pokemon on grass a bronze crown will happear, that means you cautch eveyr grass pokemon
    then if you catch the pokemon found on surfing it will get silver
    gold for all pokemon that you can usually find
    then there is the pokemon that happear post game (or post goundon, i didnt get that far yet) if you catch themm all it will happear platinum

    for ditto you just have to walk, it would mention on the page i gave you if you needed to finish the game or something

    my dad works for nintendo.
    the crown is revelant on how far you are in the game
    for example, you start the game and can't surf or fish, so you can just catch pokemon on grass, a bronze s usefull so that i know i am done in the grass and move to the next area, later i come back and get the missing pokemon that i couldnt reach on watter before...
    after some event on the game (i think its after you get groundon) several pokemon come from other regions, it makes a bit more confusing distinguishing wich one is native to hoenn or not..

    Yep, I didn't focus on catching the pokemon at start and cleared the story and delta episode and now I move and clear each area! Also catch legendaries from daily spots etc.

    Now about online battles how should I choose the pokemons that I will use?

    depends, are you batling for fun or serious?
    for fun, just pick your favorites\ try and error.. have fun battling with friends and just try lots of different stuff


    for serious
    that is a really lot of work and study...
    you to specially worry about stats. every pokemon got 3 types of stats,

    IV, means individual values (they are like the dna code of pokemon, you can't change them, every pokemon gots his own)http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Individual_values
    each individual stat can go up to 31, you usually dont know the real values, you need calculators to guess this one...

    EV, effort values which are stats that go up on training (which is now easy to do with supper training minigame) http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Effort_values
    each effort value can go up to 252

    and there are the stats that each type of pokemon have...

    lol, I traded random easy to find pokemon and got whatever the hell I wanted with the GTS within 12 hours(that's how long I took between checking). as long as you don't have an asking lvl of higher than 0-10, you'll find your desired pokemon relatively quickly.

    Granted this was on Pokemon XY, but I can't imagine it will be that hard on Pokemon ORAS

    I tried the trade feature and it was easy. I traded a minus for a plusle that I wanted :)
    I have a new question. My boxes are close to maxed out... Where will the rest of the pokemon be stored??? :S
