    Arty2 has also got all the information for ALL of the Attacks including whether or not they are Physical, Special or Other. A Trainer's dream. Click below to view.

    Arty2 has kindly extracted the names attacks that all the TMs use. If its a number then its a new attack and we'll have translations soon.
        TMs:

        Plot Spoilers:

  • The trio of Shinou are in the lakes afterall, and they are those 3 psychic weirdies you see in the mini-sprites. Pink one is Emuritto, Yellow one is Yukishii, Blue one is Agunomu. Team Galaxy captures all three of them and you gotta free them. They are said to be godly beings as well. This occurs After the 6th Gym is completed

  •  
    • Heracross is #062. Aipom is #063. Gastly is #069, Haunter is #070 and Gengar is #071. Misdreavus is #072. Murkrow is #074. Goldeen is #078 & Seaking is #079. Barboach is #080 & Whiscash is #081. Chimecho is #083 Cleffa is #099, Clefairy is #100 & Clefable is #101. Wooper is #117 & Quagsire is #118. Wingull is #119 & Pelipper is #120. Girafarig is #121.

    • According to reports from our affiliate, PocketMonsters, the Shinou Dex has #151 Pokémon in it. However this does not include all the New Pokémon that were revealed yesterday or even revealed beforehand (e.g. Elekible) and the majority of these are seemingly the Pokémon related to old Pokémon. This implies that you either obtain the Pokémon that are related to these elsewhere in the game or there are bundles of options once you've transferred them over
    • You get Pinpuku in an Egg given to you
    • When Eggs hatch, they no longer hatch at Level 5, but at Level 1!
    • All Baby Pokémon are found in the wild
    • Murkrow & Its Evo appear to be exlusive to Diamond and Misdreavus and its evo is exclusive to Pearl

    New DP News?

    The Japanese Blog, blue skY, which brought the news of the 3 starter Pokémon before they were revealed has brought a bit more news to the fold regarding Diamond & Pearl:

    • The Pokémon you encounter at the start of the game are Mukkuru, Subomi (does that confirm the theory of it being the sihlouetted Pokémon?), Buizeru, Perappu and three new Pokémon of names; Garinan,Samusamu & Maasura
    • The first Gym leader, Zack, is a ground type Gym and he has Two Diglett at Level 12 and a Level 15 Maasura
    • There is a new attack called Giga Horn

    As usual this is not 100% confirmed but it is more than likely true

    Two New Pokémon

    This brings us to our next bit of news. The title reveals a New Pokémon's name, Subomi. It is unknown what the Pokémon is, but its possible that it is the Shadow Pokémon that was with Mukkuru but there is no way to tell yet. Watch this space for more news

    Also, Nintendo have revealed with the Download Stations Demos coming in Japan on the 24th that you will see a new Pokémon in it, a screenshot shows it's name as the trainer is sending out but no picture of it, it is called Bippa. Further details of it are not yet known.

    Wednesday: We're back
    - 06-09-2006-12:12 EDT - Serebii


    Sorry that it took so long to do it but we've got the domain back. We've added a bit of extra protection to it so this shouldn't happen again. I do however apologise for the content that was placed during the theft and that none of it was in any relation to myself or the website. I know it was out of my control but I hope it does not colour your judgement of us and our site.

    I want to thank you all for all of your support throughout this. It's really good to know that the majority of you do care about the site. Thank you.

    On a Pokémon note, there are 7 sihlouettes flying about today, including Koroboshi and the 2 Pokémon we revealed last week. These are more than likely fake as one of the sihlouettes closely resembles a piece of Fan Art posted on an image board a few days ago. We'll keep you aprised

    Pokémon Transfer Clarified

    Well the official site today has revealed further details into the transfer of Pokémon between games. Here are the details:

    • The 6 a day transferral is specific to each game. For example if you have Ruby & Sapphire. You can transfer 6 from each each day. But you cannot transfer 6 more until you have the 6 captured
    • The Park Ball has a 100% Capture Rate
    • The aspect of the Park Ball requires you to have to find the Pokémon within the park. The rarer your Pokémon, the harder it will be to find.
    • Capture is confirmed to be one way. If you transfer them to Diamond & Pearl, you cannot transfer them back and they are gone from your GBA game.

    Two New Pokémon Revealed?

    Well, with thanks to slowkingsley for the heads up, a new bit of Merchandise has been put on some Japanese Online Stores. One of note is a 2007 Daily Calendar. This calendar includes Pikachu, Diaruga, Parukia, the three starters (all in poses we have yet to see) and these two Pokémon. At the moment we do not have 100% confirmation on this but it did however come from a shop selling this piece of merchandise. I will keep you aprised so keep checking back:

    Diaruga & Parukia Types

    Some other merchandise by Bandai has possibly revealed one of Diaruga and one of Parukia's types. It is unknown if these will stick as merchandise has been dodgy with the typings (some merchandise still say Tamanta is pure water and Perappu is pure Flying). The merchandise groups Diaruga in with Steel type Pokémon and Parukia in with Water Type Pokémon. We'll keep you aprised on this
