Sometimes when I go to battle in Pokemon Diamond/Platinum the pokeballs along the top of the DS touch screen start shaking.

Why is this?

How do you know?
I like how people are saying stuff like 'Ancient Question' in 2011, and nowadays 2011 itself is ancient.
^ The hour that comment was posted is ancient.
Good one. ^

They shake when that pokemon is close to levelling up - I think it's when you have around 1/8 left on the EXP bar.

The six balls in order correspond to your party pokemon left-to-right, top-to-bottom if you didn't know. (Although if you switch pokemon the ordering switches too. The current battling pokemon is always #1.)

Pokemaster is right. It is when their close to grow a level.

Wow...I had no idea. I just thought that when it shook that pokemon just wanted to fight. Yet again they don't have minds of thier own. I feel stupid now...
Pokemon do have minds of their own
Yeah it is a bit much, but PM only gets 220 points. The votes only count until 20 Upvoted and then whether there is a BA or not.
Oh its more than 220 xD
