The Spear Pillar - Catching Dialga, Palkia

To start this quest, head to Celestic Town and talk to Cynthia's granny.
Once you've done that, go to Oreburgh City and access Mt. Coronet from
there.

Mt. Coronet
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
Items: Adamant Orb, Lustrous Orb, Stone Plate, TM02 Dragon Claw, Nugget.

Surf on the water going north and Rock Climb to the upper level. Head for
the stairs leading up to the next floor. Make your way around back to the
outside. head east and Rock Climb when you can. Go into the cave to the
right. Now, surf west then ascend the waterfall. Get out of the water via
the top end and enter he next cave.

The rock here has a STONE PLATE, then grab the things that you came here
for -- the ADAMANT and LUSTROUS ORBS. Leave this cave and trace your steps
to the Spear Pillar. There is a TM02 and NUGGET to be found along the way.

Once you reach the Spear Pillar, save your game and examine the blue portal
Dialga will appear and try to eat you.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------- 
| Legendary Pokemon Dialga                                       |
----------------------------------------------------------------
| Dialga's Roar of Time deals serious damage on your Pokemon,    |
| and it is also halves the damage it receives from most attack  |
| types. It is weak against Ground and Fighting-type moves       |
| though. Earthquake does considerable damage to Dialga, but do  |
| not overdo it since you're supposed to capture this Pokemon,   |
| not defeat it. Once you get its HP down to red, start throwing |
| Ultra Balls or Dusk Balls (at night). It may take several      |
| attempts to successfully capture it.                           |
----------------------------------------------------------------

Once Dialga is captured, leave the room and return to the previous floor,
then come back to the room where you fought Dialga. Save and talk to
the purple portal. Palkia will try to eat you too.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------- 
| Legendary Pokemon Palkia                                       |
----------------------------------------------------------------
| Palkia is very similar to Dialga, except that its a water      |
| Pokemon instead of steel. It also has an attack called Special |
| Rend that can deal a good amount of damage, so use your best   |
| Pokemon and slowly chip away Palkia's HP. You will have better |
| chance of catchin Palkia with Net Balls too.                   |

Staraptor and all of those are easy, except infernape which can only be obtained at the start of the game as the prevolution chimchar for staraptor just level up a starly (can be found on route 201) or staravia found at the route south of veilstone in the grass patch near the lake for luxray go in the grass patches on the route west to sunyshore city catch a luxio and lvl it up a bit snover just go on the route east of snowpoint near the lake and gabite appears on victory road about 7% of the time approx

adding to the above, a Shiny Starly sprite is brown and tan rather than black and grey, with a lighter shade of orange on the feet and beak.

and for those who dont know, a pre-evolved shiny will stay shiny after evolution

Caught both last night. used a level 100 Latios from my Emerald version, and mixed it up with a level 90 shiny Staraptor on Dialga, brought it down yellow bar, then tossed, erm...maybe 5 or 6 ultra balls at it, and nailed it on the seventh. definitely the second easiest legendary capture I've pulled off since the Regis in Emerald (caught them all with a combined total of 6 ultra balls) Palkia was fun though, I used my level 100 Sceptile to play with it for a bit, then swapped to a level 65 Salamence and red barred Palkia and got it on the 9th ultra ball

How many chances do you have to get Dialga/Palkia? Does not getting them the fist time ruin your chances of getting one or another? (I caught Palkia but not Dialga)
