    Hey everyone,

    Im new to pokemon and im playing Platinum on my DS XL with a m3izero flash card.
    I just wanted to know, I see on the wikipedia about wild special pokemon where you need to have one of the old games in the card slot in the back for them to appear. E.g leaf green.

    Obiviously I cant put leaf green in the back since the m3izero is in there and I dont have it anyway so is it enough to just have the leaf green Rom on my flashcard? Will that do the trick?


    Thanks

    Only with a DS Lite/Fat and a slot 2 expansion

    EZ-Flash 3in1 with it loaded in RAM/NOR works at least (megaman zx special stages too).

    Not to mention the GBA Pokémon games will not fit into a DSi system (neither normal-sized nor XL) anyway. But Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver were designed with this in mind, so any Pokémon you cannot get on a DSi in Platinum should be available in the latter two.
