PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

After you obtain your 4th gym badge and leave that city you run into Bianca.
She takes you to this weird forest room. And there's a Mincinno in the middle.
I fainted it, because I didn't want it. Now this is just an empty, yet cool looking room.

What else can I do in here? There seems to be more to this place.
( She probably said something about it, but... I can't exactly read Japanese. )

These places are called Hidden Hollows. These are places where you can get DW ability Pokemon ingame. Meaning that Miccino you fainted has Skill Link. There are many places like these.
Look here under Hidden Hollows to see the areas and Pokemon inside them.

Oh yeah, sometimes there can be items instead of Pokemon. You may need the Dowsing Machine.

Sml.. I fainted my only shot at a Skill Link Mincinno? ... Well. Dang it.
It can reappear, don't worry :D
How do I get it to do that?
You have to wait a certain period of time for a Pokemon to regenerate. The time you need to wait is 256 steps. There will be a 5% chance of regeneration.
This is awesome I can't wait for the English version to come out

Hidden Hollows. These rooms are in between trees and contain Pokemon with their Dream World ability. They also can contain Items. Great for ROMs that can't access DW.
(They have Dragonite with Multiscale and Ditto with Imposter :D :D :D :D)
