Unlock Manaphy (Pokemon Ranger)
Very many pokemon fans have wanted a chance to capture one of the rarest pokemon in sinnoh MANAPHY, but due to the fact that pokemon diamond and pearl do not have any availible manaphy in the ENTIRE GAME. So the easiest way for you to get a manaphy is for you to get the game Called POKEMON RANGER. This game has a mission that is available for you to play after you do a few things.
(1) Beat the Pokemon Ranger game.
(2) On the ranger net screen hold the buttons R, X, and the D-PAD LEFT (if you beat the game you will know what the ranger net is).
(3) When the screen says enter password, input P8M2-9D6F-43H7 (Cap-sense is on).
(4) Then at the special missions screen you will see a mission called RESCUE THE EGG. Tap on it then do the mission and get the egg, this will not be easy and will take a lot of time and effort but it all pays off at the end.
(5) Borrow (or buy) a second Nintendo DS and the copy of Pokemon Diamond or Pearl you want the Manaphy on. The second DS should have Pokemon Ranger inserted. Go to the Ranger net with the Ranger DS and tap on CHECK THE EGG and then tap SEND MESSAGE. If your Diamond/Pearl DS is close enough to receive the message, you will get the Manaphy egg traded to you.
1. Turn on your other DS with the D/P cart.
2 Select the option to transfer Manaphy.
3. Do the wireless ok’s and what not.
4 Go to the nearest mart with 5 pokemon or less to pick up your egg.
Hint – Pastoria Berries
Upon Entering Pastoria City from Route 212, enter the first house you see. The woman sitting at the table inside will give you one of the following 17 berries:
Hint – GBA Unlockable Pokemon
When you have different GBA Cartridges in your GBA Slot (FireRed, LeafGreen, Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald) you can catch wild Pokémon in different locations, relevant to the GBA game you have inserted. You can get Pokémon like Solrock (Ruby), Lotad (Sapphire), Weedle (FireRed), Caterpie (LeafGreen) and Gligar (Emerald) this way.
Hint – Locario
After beating the fifth gym leader, you can SURF to the city that is next to Jubilife City X3. Be sure to have an empty slot in your Pokemon party. When you arrive, go across the bridge and down to the boats to sail to Iron Mountain.
There is a guy named Riley at the mountain that wants to cross the mountain with you. Take him along and fight through the mountain until you reach Galactic Grunts 1 and 2. Riley has a L34 Lucario. The grunts have a Glameow and Goldbat. Provided you win, Riley will give you an egg that hatches into an L1 Roilu after you travel 6500 steps (or so).
You can clear the step counter application for the Poketech and use that to count your steps. Roilu is the pre-evolved form of Lucario and when it loves you in the day time it will evolve. Feed Roilu its favorite flavor (Poffin) or train it to L30. If you have the friend application, check that to see if Roilu likes you or not.
Hint – Giratina
This Pokemon is available after getting national pokedex. A new area will appear near veilstone. Go there go through the cave at the end of the lake
(spring path) and there is a cave called Turnback cave with nothing but ghost Pokemon. There will be room after room after you go past the first two
pillars and get to the third go to the room to the left and there will be
Giratina you only have one chance of catching so save the game first before you fight.

Hint – Cresselia
First, go to Canalave City (Cresselia is in both Diamond and pearl
versions). Look for the boy in Sailor Eldritch’s house. Talk to the boy in
bed and he will be saying something in his sleep, something about Darkrai.
Talk to the mother next to the boy in bed. Next go outside of the house and
talk to the sailor next to the ship that takes you to Iron Island. He will
say something about a Crecent Wing. Then he takes you to an island. On the
island, there should be a clearing, go into it. Then you should see a
Talk to it, and it will appear on your screen and will be added to your
pokedex. then it will disappear. Its kindda like catching Mesprit.
If you did not get the pokemon leauge or get all the pokemon in the Shinoh
Pokedex, you cannot catch Cresselia. Now if you did not get the pokefinder
application, it will be much more difficult to catch Cresselia.
This is how you get the app, you have to go to the Poketech company in
Jublife City, talk to theman next to the desk on the FIRST FLOOR, He gives
you like 6 or 7 apps, the pokefinder app is the second or third one he gives
you, YOU CAN GET THEM ALL IN THE SAME DAY! Now, good luck catching
Cresselia, oh and one more thing, i think altering between route 205 and the
Valley Windworks isthe best way to use. And you should stock up on MANY
quickballs. Happy hunting!
Easter Egg – Medal Duster
Go to your Trainer Card (Right under BAG in the in-game Menu). Go tap the little square under the section “GYM LEADERS.” You then will see all your medals. The more close to a dark bluish color, the more dusty they are. The more close to a white color, the more clean they are. To dust them off, simply rub the medal with your stylus for a while. It will gradually go from Dark Blue to White to Sparkling.
Hint – Rotom
Rotom, can be found in the Old Chateau in Eterna Forest. If you’ve been inside, you’ve might have seen a ghost or two there. Now you must have the Nationel Pokedex to get Rotom. When you go to Eterna Forest the Gym leader of Eterna (she’ll be at the front of the Old Chateau) she’ll tell you about a mysterious pokemon found inside, she’ll than leave.
Go inside to the secound floor, than go through the center room, than go to the secound last room on the left. They’ll be a tv inside, go up to it and talk to it. It’ll say theres a pokemon visible inside. It’ll than give you the option of thumping the tv, put yes and you’ll enter a battle with Rotom. Its level 15 so it should be easy to catch with a couple of ultra balls.
If it doesn’t work when you go to the tv, you’ll need to see the two ghosts of the Old Chateau first. The first one is on the first floor. When you enter the Old Chateau, talk to the statue near the center room, than enter the center room. You should see a ghost of an old man across the room, it’ll than float away.
The second ghost can be found on the secounf floor. Go up stairs to the center room. Head to the seound last room of the right and enter. You should see a girl in the other room, she’ll then leave the room. Leave the room and than go back to the tv room. You should now be able to get Rotom.
Hint – Mining Clue
When you get the explorer kit from the old man in Eterna city (the house beside the pokemon center) use it and go underground. On your upper DS screen there are yellow glowing dots flashing on and off. Go up to one on the upper screen and look at the bottom screen. Click on your bottom screen to search for the glowing dot. When you find a glowing dot (only in walls) go up to it and click A. Then you will be in the digging screen, And use the hammer or pick axe. When you dig you will see 4 layers:
when you see a light brown layer with a crack in it, look carefully through that crack. If it has a white spot ignore it (wall). If the spot has a different color click the spot because something is hidden there.
Hint – Elite Four Team Weaknesses
This is how to get a mystery gift:
- Go to the Jubilife TV station in Jubilife City.
- Go to the 3rd floor.
- Talk to the man in the lower room (he’s on the left).
- The first two words you tell him are ”everyone” and ”happy”.
- the second two words are ”wi-Fi” and ”Connection”.
This will then unlock the Mystery Gift feature on the main menu.
When you go into it you can recieve your gift 3 ways:
Easter Egg – Ghost Gang
You must have the HM Cut, as well as the Forest Badge, to find this easter egg. Use Cut on the trees near the exit to Eterna Forest to discover a path to a mysterious mansion. There are two rooms that hold spooks: One is the dining room downstairs and the other is upstairs on the far right, but you can only see it from the adjacent room to the left.
If you have a GBA game in slot 2 of the DS or the National Dex, you can get a Haunter and Gengar in the room with the “eyed portrait” that seems to look at you if you back away from it, or a Rotom in the 2nd floor TV (respectively).
Hint – Lots of Masterballs (or Other Items)
After you obtain the National Dex in Pokemon Diamond/Pearl, you can go to Pal Park, where you migrate Pokemon from a Gameboy game to your DS cartridge. So, clone a million masterballs or other items on Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, Fire Red, Leaf Green, or Emerald, give them to pokemon, migrate the pokemon, and viola, millions of that item on Pokemon Diamond/Pearl.
Hint – Spiritomb
To get Spiritomb, go to Solaceon Town and go downwards until you see a well-type looking thing. That is the Hallowed Tower, when you press ‘A’ on it, it will say:
It’s the Hallowed Tower.
It appears to have been built
many years ago.
If it asks you to put in an ‘Odd Keystone,’ say yes. If you already have done so, go down underground with a friend, and have him/her go into his/her secret base and keep coming out and greet you.
Do this 32 times, go back up to the Hallowed Tower, and you will find Spiritomb. It is level 25, and you DO NOT have to see Spiritomb from the Champion Cynthia, I know becuase I did it. You can also do this with Odd Keystones more than once if your friends give you more. I only know of 2. The one by Hearthome City, there’s a Karate guy to the left, beat him and talk to him, and the one below.
Already sold your Odd Keystone? No worries, there’s another one. Fly to TwinLeaf Town, go down to the water, surf until you get to the middle, then go all the way left and press ‘A’ on the crack in between trees. If you’re having trouble finding it, use your item radar PokeApp which is PokeApp #7.
Hint – Earn Seals Other Than Sunnyshore
First, go to Solceon town. Near the exit at the top on your right there is a hidden opening; go inside!
There will be 4 ledges within; jump down the fourth one and you’ll enter another ruin.
There is a kid in that ruin. Find him and talk to him so he will leave.
Go forth and catch all the Unown. They only know hidden power, so they can’t do much damage to your Pokemon.
Go back to Solcean town and locate the same ruins. Jump down the third ledge (not the fourth one) instead to find a house.
The kid from the ruins will be there and if you speak to him after capturing all the Unowns, you get a Seals.
