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.

Unlockable: Blue Trainer Card
You must defeat the Elite Four.
Unlockable: Lucario Egg
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.

Unlockable Pokemon - Giratina
Giratina is a powerful DRAGON/GHOST type that can be found deep in Turnback Cave, a place that is said to overlap a different, darker dimension...Anyway, Giratina can only be found and fought once in the game. Be sure to save. Also, Giratina can only be found after obtaining the National Dex and beating the Elite Four. Be sure that is done. Turnback Cave is found in a previously secluded place called Sendback Springs.
- Make sure you have Rock Climb, and preferably Defog, because Turnback Cave is very foggy.
- Bring many Dusk Balls, Ultra Balls, or a Master Ball if you were saving it to get a very strong pokemon. Also, if you don't want to fight lvl. 50 - 67 pokemon, grab some repels.
- Fly to Veilstone City, if you aren't already there, then travel down the fence-maze area until you see a long, empty path stretching out to the right.
- Go and travel that path until you come to a rocky wall by two trees standing together.
- Use Rock Climb, and after the HM is done, you'll be at a large, clear lake, very much like Uxie, Azelf, and Mesprit's lakes. Go to the very farthest north by the lake. There will be another rocky wall at the edge of the lake.
- Use Rock Climb again, and when the HM is done, you'll be standing next to a cave entrance. Go inside.
- Congratulations, you have now entered Turnback Cave. Now for the trickiest part. There will be a rock wall ahead of you. Read the inscription.
- There apparently no set ways to get to Giratina, but it is only accessible by passing three pillars before you pass 30 rooms. Once you pass the 3rd pillar, and room you enter from here on in will be Giratina's. Once you save before you face him, take notice of these things.
Giratina's moveset is:
Giratina is level 70, so have a strong pokemon in your roster. After you catch it, which will most likely be a grueling experience, you can leave the cave. (not that you couldn't before). If you want, you can train on some powerful pokemon, (wild lvl. range gets boosted by ten after each pillar is passed) collect a rare item, an infinite amount of items will appear in Giratina's place after you either have caught it, or fainted it (rare bones, stardust) or you can take time to read this slightly ominous messsage engraves on the rock behind where Giratina used to stand.
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 - Pokemon Mansion
In Route 212, there is a Mansion where a few people live. Out back there is a patch of grass which is predominantly inhabited by Roselia, Mukubird, Pichu, Pikachu and Korotokku. However if you talk to the owner in the room to the right, you can activate something else.
Every day if you talk to him, he'll walk out. Go back in and he'll be there and tell you of a Pokémon that is inhabiting the place today. Sometimes its a Rare Shinou Dex Pokémon, others its a Non-Shinou Dex Pokémon so be alert. They are however there all day so you can go back. Their level averages at Lv. 16 to Lv. 19 so bring a Pokémon of that level. You have up to two of these Pokémon at once, they have a low encounter rate in the Mansion and the two Pokémon are the one allocated Today and Yesterday.
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!

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:
Wi-fi (kinda) -- while you won't get a gift from this cheat, just get the option to receive it, but when pokemon announces when the mystery event will be, go receive wifi and if you are lucky, you might receive a mystery gift/ legendary pokemon/ wicked sweet area/ ticket/ member pass.

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:
A dark brown spot
A lighter brown spot
the wall (which is un brake-able)
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.

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.

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.

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 - 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 - Legendary Pokemon Dialga
You will need Surf, Rock smash, and Rock climb.
I suggest you keep a master ball for Dialga (you can clone it using the GBA Pokemon clone trick).
Go to Mt. Coronet, left from Hearthome city.
Follow a path until you find a way out of the cave. But don't go threw it, go up and you will find a place where you can use Surf, go past it and go on land. Use rock climb on the wall, go up the stairs and follow the path to a door that leads to more stairs. Go until find a door that leads outside and move forward until you see a place where you can use rock climb just once.
Go left through the grass and go in the cave. Follow the path and you will be at spear pillar. Don't go up by the three people because they are the Team Galactics' generals. Save your game. When you beat them you will have a chance to catch Dialga.

Hint - Eevee At the Pokemon Mansion
First you must get your national pokedex by spotting every pokemon in the Sinnoh region. Afterwards head to Pro.Rowan and the rest will
be simple from there.
After getting your national pokedex, head to the pokemon mansion. Instead of going in the trophy garden, talk to the owner of the the trophy garden. He will ask you two questions and you must answer yes to both questions. Every morning when you talk to him he will ask you the same two questions, and after you answer his questions, he will tell you what pokemon he saw in his garden that morning. Some of the pokemon are: marill, meowth, cleffairy, and eevee.
Keep going to him everyday until he say that he saw some Eevees in his garden this morning. When he does, then you go in the garden and you will find your eevee. It may take you a minute to find the first one but you will be able to catch a few.

Hint - New Evolutions of Pokemon
Yanma evolves into Yanmega. Build it to level 33 and let it learn Ancient Power, it will evolve.
Use a shiny stone on Togetic to evolve it into Togekiss.
Use a dawn stone on a female Snorunt to evolve it into the Ice/Ghost Pokemon known as Froslass.
Level up Nosepass at Mount Coronet to evolve it into Probepass. Do the same with Magneton.
Level up Tangela to Level 33 and let it learn Ancient Power to evolve it into Tangagrowth.
Either catch a male and female Lickitung when in abundance or level one up until it learns rollout and it will evolve into Lickilicky.
Submitted by Adam Springsteen (aspringsteen_2000)
Hint - New Evolutions
There are new evolutions available only from a Pokemon trade or by Pokemon increasing a level while equipping an item:
- If you trade a Magmar while holding the Magmarizer (held by a wild Magby) it will evolve.
- If you trade an Electabuzz with the Thunderizer (held by a wild Elekid) it will evolve.
- If you trade a Rhydon holding Protector it will evolve into Rhyperior.
- if you trade Porygon 2 while holding the Dubious Disc it will evolve into Porygon 3.
- If you trade a Dusclops while it holds a Reper cloth it will evolve.
- If you level up Sneasle holding the Razor Claw at night it will evolve into Weavile.
- If you level up a Gligar while holding the Razor Fang it will evolve into Gliscor.
Also there are four pokemon from the very original if you played it that evolve without hold items through trade (machoke=machamp, kadabra=alakazam, haunter=gengar, gravler=golem)

Hint - Drifloon
Go to the valley Windworks afterwards on an in-game Friday. Drifloon will pop in and out when you search for on in the grass. Try to use a quick-ball to capture it since it will run away at the first chance it gets. You can also set your DS' internal clock to a Friday and re-attempt a failed capture.
You do not have to beat the Elite Four and have all badges; you just have to beat the guy with the planet name, and rescue the guy whom his daughter comments "You smell bad" near the Valley Windworks.
You have to catch it on Friday, but Drifloon does not run away. It is like a legendary, you can see its 3D picture and you just have to press the A button in front of it.
It also will be there EVERY Friday, so if you fail, there are tons of more chances to get it.

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.

Action replay shaymin walk through walls
To do this you must have ar or action replay. On your ar you must have the walk though walls cheat ,so piick that and start your game.once you have started go to the pokemon leage (note:you must have access to the pokemon leage) and to the right you will see a cliff. Go down the cliff and reach land .now you go up until you see a stone tablet. PS: ignore it, now head forward and you will see a brige, with flowers. go acoss all the way and there you will find a shaymin!!! from there you can use your pokemon catching stratagy.
After you capture/defeat Dialga you can capture Mesprit. (Uxie and Azelf as well)Go to Lake Verity and surf to the cave.Go inside, you will see Mesprit. Press A on it then you will see a picture of it.(Then it will be added to your pokedex.) Then it will fly away.Then Professer Rowan will come in and say that you will have to track Mesprit down with the Poketch app called "Marking Map".If you don't have that app yet, then fly to Jubilife city and enter the Poketch building.Talk to the President and he will give you some apps, one of them is the "Marking map" Now you are ALMOST ready to catch Mesprit. Before you start in action Stock some Utltra, Dusk,or Quick balls.NOW your ready.This is how you encounter Mesprit.Walk back and forth through towns and routes-Towns such as Twinleaf,Sandgem,Celestic,Eterna,Solcean,Jubilife,Oreburgh, and some more.And then you will Eventually see a face on top of the route that you are walking in. Then go to the nearest patch of grass and walk in it, It may not always be Mesprit the first time but it might be the next time.But if you wait to long, Mesprit will just go to another route.Once You encounter Mesprit Use a high level pokemon (Because Mesprit is on Level 50)and use Mean Look. beacause Mesprit will only flee when you try to weaken it without useing Mean Look. Now you can weaken it.(Or weaken it on the first turn with a high speed Pokemon and try to encounter it again,thats how I did it)I used my Uxie and Kept useing Thunderbolt. Then you canuse ultra balls or Dusk balls if you are playing at night.It may not work But Keep trying!The reason I said Quick balls is because if you don't have a pokemon with Mean Look, youcan try theese ones.You will Eventually Capure Mesprit and if you caught it BEFORE the Elite four then Mesprit Would be a big help. Happy Catching!.
