Hi. First off, this (Pearl) is the 1st Pokemon game I've ever played, so if I say anything that makes me sound clueless... there ya go!
Ok I am near the end of the game, storylinewise. I have 140 in my Pokedex and I'm wondering a few things.
a. is it possible to get to 150 and get the national dex before beating the Elite 4? I ask this because....
b. I have been using a Bidoof & Bastiodon to do most of my HM moves. Bastiodon has terrible attack and pretty much everything except for his defense is bad. And Bidoof is Bidoof. 'nuff said.
So what I want to know is if there's a way I can get all the way up to the E4 & then get to a PC or something & switch them out for better guys? Havent been able to get rid of them so far bec. I need rock smash, waterfall, etc. (not that I will EVER make it through Victory Road. OMG!)
c. so lets say I do the above & somehow EVER actually make it out of that horrible place LOL (Victory Road) & make it to the final 4 or whatever. Which Pokemon types are the safest to NOT have?? Because now that I'm close, I'm seeing that its not even mathematically possible to cover every move type. I've been trying to cross train some guys - hope that's not a bad idea. You know, like teaching Grass Knot to Raichu or Ancient Power to Palkia.
Speaking of Palkia, I still have my master ball I wonder if I should/could replace Bidoof or Bastiodon with another legendary before I get in there?? Thanks!!
