Pokémon of the Week - Deoxys Speed Forme

In The Pokémon of the Week Department

Who's That Pokémon

Once again going into the 4th Generation Competitive Battling strategies, we are covering our one-hundred & eleventh Pokémon. Today, we're covering one of the Pokémon introduced in the third generation. This Pokémon has four different forms, all introduced through the course of the 3rd generation. The form covered here is arguably the most well-rounded form. The crystalline organ on this Pokémon's chest appears to be its brain. It is highly intelligent and wields psychokinetic powers. This Pokémon shoots lasers from the crystalline organ on its chest. So here it is, the one hundred & eleventh featured Pokémon, Deoxys Speed Forme.

Final Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky News Details

Thanks once more to Coronis, we have the final bit of news from Explorers of the Sky. However, despite that, we will have updates to the section featuring various pages including Dungeon listings and the Spin-Off Pokédex soon. On the news front however, we have discovered the final details.
Firstly, to get to the new Zero Island dungeon; Zero Island Central, you have to recycle 150 items at the Wynaut shop in Spinda's Café. This dungeon is a 50 Floor dungeon which lets you bring in 16 items. However, the Pokémon within the dungeon are ridiculously high levelled so it is sure to prove a massive challenge.
Secondly, the way to have Giratina change form has been discovered. Unfortunately, it cannot be done in every dungeon. It appears that in all of the new dungeons added to the game; Wish Cave, Sky Summit, Zero Isle Central, Destiny Tower, Forgotten Woods, Devil Seas, Southeastern Archipelago & Blaze Cave, Giratina will be in its Origin Forme. However, while in all the dungeons which existed in Time & Darkness, it will be in it's Altered Forme.
Finally, in answer to a question I have received a bit, the Gracidea Flower is a one-time use item. However, you do have the ability to get many more for free from a Shaymin in Shaymin Village.

Further Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky Details

Coronis has discovered a new way of obtaining specific Dungeons in the game. These dungeons, in Time & Darkness, were only obtained via random optional missions. However, with the Spinda's Café, there are a variety of new ways. First, at the Wynaut counter, certain dungeons get unlocked when recycle a certain amount of items. They are as follows;

  • Landslide Cave - 3 Items Recycled
  • Tiny Meadow - 6 Items Recycled
  • Oran Forest - 60 Items Recycled
  • End Lake - 100 Items Recycled
Also, it was discovered that when you buy a drink from Spinda, there is a very small chance of something happening. This includes random Pokémon coming and joining your team, obtaining an egg or having a new dungeon to explore. These dungeons include Serenity River, Lush Prarie, Happy Outlook, Mt. Mistral, Lost Wilderness and the new dungeon; Destiny Tower.
The Destiny Tower dungeon is a massive 99 Floor dungeon. You cannot take in any items and you can only be 1 Pokémon. Your level is also reduced down to Level 1. Once you complete the 99th floor, you go up to the top, where the statue of Arceus is. The statue has the following written on it; 'Conquering time-space, making hearts as one', and 'Is this the legendary Pokemon that created everything, Arceus?'. You then get the new item; Time-Space Orb, which raises your attack and other stats to maximum. Giratina changes to it's Origin Forme when in this dungeon. We'll bring you more on this as we get it

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky - More Details

Coronis has uncovered further details, this time in regards to the legendary pokémon within this game as well as how to unlock certain new dungeons. First, it appears that in the Spinda's Café, after a certain point in the game, some of the missions you will receive within there will be Challenge Requests. These Challenge Requests come from certain Pokémon asking you to go to a certain dungeon and face them. If you defeat them, they will join your expedition.
These special dungeons, and hard dungeons (restricts the items you bring in to 9 and only allows 2 Pokémon in) get unlocked originally when you reach certain new ranks for your team. These go beyond the Master Rank and get up to a new rank called Guild Master Rank. These are as follows;

  • Master Rank * - Unlocks Forgotten Woods
  • Master Rank ** - Unlocks Devil Seas
  • Master Rank *** - Unlocks Southeastern Archipelago
  • Guild Master Rank - Unlocks Blaze Cave

It is also interesting to note that there are several new items in the game with negative effects. These include a Seed named similarly to the Revival Seed that actually knocks you out and a berry that takes away your HP.
The page to the right will give you details on where all the legendary Pokémon are now found

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky - Further Details

Having continued with the game, Coronis has discovered a few things about it that are interesting to note. Both of Shaymin's forms and Giratina's Origin Forme are included in the game. However, none of Rotom's new forms are included within the game and it appears that Arceus' appearance, as seen in this screenshot, is just in statue form in a similar manner to Lucario, Weavile, Mime Jr. & Bonsly's appearance within the original Dungeon games within the new Destiny's Tower dungeon. This dungeon as well as several other new dungeons do not appear in the main game and may later be released via "Wonder Mail S" codes and Wi-Fi events. We'll bring you more as and when we have it.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky - Shaymin Details

Thanks to Coronis whom managed to get ahead, we have some further details from the game. Firstly, the special Shaymin area opens up right after you graduate from the guild. The Sky Summit works in a similar manner to Mt. Battle from Pokémon Colosseum & XD and features 10 sets of levels seperated by various basecamps. You have the ability to leave at any base camp and can return back to that point at any time. Once you get to the top, you challenge some Grimer & Muk and the mountain gets filled with Gracidea Flowers. Go up again and Shaymin is recruitable
In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness, there were a variety of missions which could only be obtained via accessing through a special password. However, in this game, these missions are available from Spinda's Café after the completion of the game. They all get unlocked gradually so it's not all at once. We'll bring more as we get it.

Who's That Pokémon

Once again going into the 4th Generation Competitive Battling strategies, we are covering our one-hundred & eighth Pokémon. Today, we're covering one of the Pokémon introduced in the most recent generation. Evolving purely from happiness, it is good to get moves such as Return on it. It has delicate ears which it uses as cover should it feel that it is in danger. It's unique ability prevents the effects of Hold Items from being active. So here it is, the one hundred & eighth featured Pokémon, Lopunny.

Pokémon Platinum: Sinnoh Pokédex Locations

One of the more common questions I see across the internet since Platinum's appearance is; "Where is Pokémon #???". Since in Platinum, you need to see every Pokémon in the Sinnoh Dex to obtain the National Pokédex and thus push forwards, this can prove to be a massive undertaking if you miss out certain trainers. To that end, I have compiled apage utilising the same database as Pokéarth and the Pokédex which lists all the Sinnoh Dex Pokémon as well as what trainers may have them and where they are found in the wild with the areas and equipment open to you at that point. The lists are at the bottom of the page so be sure to have a look if you are stuck looking for specific Pokémon
