Diamond & Pearl Trading

Just got some general Diamond & Pearl Info straight from PokéJungle:

  • Every Move is one of three different categories or Attack Natures; Physical, Special and Other. Physical & Special attacks derive themselves from the Physical & Special stats respectively while the Other category is used for the attacks that do not actually inflict damage
  • From PokéJungle, the attacks that are Physical that we know of are: Force Excert, Bone Rush, Poison Sting, Thunder Fang, Fire Fang, Ice Fang
  • The attacks that are Special are: Discharge, Magical Leaf and Swift which seems to still have it's power halved by Reflect
  • The attacks that are of Attack Nature 'Other' are: Anticipate, Metal Sound, Sweet Kiss, Charm, GrassWhistle, Leech Seed & Poison Barb
  • We had previously unfortunately mis-translated Mime Jr.'s ability, Filter. What it actually does is If Mime Jr is attacked with an attack that is Super Effective, it's damage is halved. Mime Jr. also learns Reflect
  • Weavile has a new attack called Scheme. It greatly increases Weavile's Special Attack.
  • Finally, although it is minor...Lucario is not Steel/Fighting but Fighting/Steel.

Tuesday: DP Page, DVD Page, Pokemon of the Week & Probable Fake Pokémon EDDIT: Minor Attack Info

Probable Fake Pokémon

Earlier this morning several fake Pokémon, whom people were claiming to be starters randomly appeared. However from the looks of these, they appear to be fake. The Japanese Names don't make sense, one of them using an archaic Japanese Syllable that hasn't been used in the Modern Language (like how we do not say 'Thy' anymore). The names for them are: Nisoduyou, Togami & Mimimuu according to the text on the image. While we are reasonable sure they are fake, its entirely possible...albeit completely unlikely, that they are actually legit.

Sunday: Major Problems + Episode Guide
- 23-07-2006-12:55 EDT EDIT @ 19:05 - Serebii


I apologise for the small update and lack of update yesterday. A lightning strike hit my garden and spread out through my house and all of my neighbours and caused an ElectroMagnetic Pulse that has disabled our network and internet. Have got most up and running again but the Internet is not working and wont be til Tuesday when an Engineer comes. Although I was intending to have an update up, had it all prepared, but my only method of uploading completely corrupts the pictures that I upload. I will try and find a way around it but in the meantime I cannot really update, I will do work though so expect a big update with some DP stuff by Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. If there is any news I will still notify you guys here as soon as I can.
However since I can upload pure text without it messing up, here is something:

In The Games Department

Diamond & Pearl Attacks & Abilities

Well from PokéJungle, we have information of new attacks & abilities of certain Pokémon that were utilised in this demo. Thanks to Coronis for assistence in translation:

  • Lucario knows the attacks Metal Sound, Bone Rush and two new attacks; Force Excert otherwise known as Hakkei, a Fighting attack that does damange and Anticipate, an attack that if the opponent uses an offensive move, Lucario will attack first and at 1.5 times the power of the opponent's attack
  • Mime Jr. knows Psybeam, Mimic and a new attack called Manekko which is like Mimic but weaker. It's ability is a new ability called Filter. This ability cuts the power of any attacks used against Mime Jr. by half if the attacks have any additional effects
  • Dorapion knows 4 brand new attacks; Dokubushi which translates as Poison Barb, a powerful Poison attack and three new attacks likely to be known around the community as elemental fangs; Fire Fang, Ice Fang & Thunder Fang, it is likely that these attacks will be similar to the Poison Fang attack in power and effect rates.

Project Glowing Moon finally unveiled

If you are a patron of the forums, you have probably been made aware of one of the projects I have been working on for the past 2 months called Glowing Moon. Truthfully I had finished it about a month ago but was just waiting for the perfect day to reveal, and today, the 37th Anniversary of the landing on the Moon, was the perfect day
This section is a Pokédex, however this Pokédex contains the information, location and statistics of all the Pokémon throughout Pokémon Trozei, Dungeon & Ranger. It's a handy feature that I am sure many of you will in the coming months as these games hit US shores. Hope you enjoy them:

Monday: More DP News
- 17-07-2006-03:06 EDT - Serebii


I caught wind of this news yesterday, but didn't have confirmation. However others found it and spread it so I figured I may aswell

In The Games Department

Diamond & Pearl News

Well the official site has again revealed more stuff. However none of this is completely set in stone:

  • The starting Pokémon may be of the Fighting/Dark/Psychic types
  • The region, Shinou, has an underground world
  • Roselia may be given an evolution
  • Attacks will be made Physical or Special based on the actual attacks. Attacks like ThunderPunch will become Physical Attacks whereas Hyper Beam becomes a Special Attack. This highly changes the battling metagame and may make some Pokémon weaker than before and some even stronger.

As said, since the game is in development it is possible that this changes but at this stage in development, it is likely that the changes will stay

New Deoxys - FAKE

FAKE DeoxysLast night a new scan arrived showing a shadowed form of what appeared to be a new Deoxys. Some sites went around posting it as real and since I have received several e-mails regarding it. However that scan is completely and 100% fake. It's a combination of many previous scans and screenshots. Just to confirm, the picture to the right is a picture of the fake Deoxys so you can stop the spreading.

Remember at times like these a lot of fake info gets spread up, sometimes by smaller sites looking for bigger audiences. Just be sure to always come here as we'll have real information first.

The image going around is fan art based on the actual image and while it is likely to be close to the final product, it can easily be inaccurate so I will not be posting anything of it. It is Fan Art and that is that.
