Getting another Turtwig/Piplup/Chimchar egg hint for Pokemon Platinum


Getting another Turtwig/Piplup/Chimchar egg

To get a second Piplup, Turtwig or Chimchar, you will need your starter pokemon, i.e Piplup, and a Ditto. To get a Ditto, you must go to Mr.Backlot's garden (south of Hearthome City) and wait until he tells you he has spotted a Ditto. (He tells you a new pokemon each day, but to speed the process up, you can save and restart to get the one you want)

When he does tell you, you have until midnight to catch Ditto in his garden. When you catch Ditto, putit in the Daycare in Solaceon Town, with your starter. After 2-5 hours, voila! The old man will find an egg, which he will give to you. Inside is a new starter!

The egg hatching isnt based on time, its based on steps. After a certain amount of steps, your egg will hatch.

to guest you can't get a palkia egg because palkia has no gender. sorry to disappoint. but if you go and beat the elite four (if you have already then go to the spear pillar again) make your way to the spear pillar and palkia will have spawned. worked for me with Dialga. just keep beating the E4 and going to the spear pillar to battle them.

oops almost forgot the ball capsule. dont mess with it the point was to take away a space in your party as a punihment for trying to cheat dont mess with the pc or you might have to restart your game. that is what i would recomend it is the only way to get rid of it.

Added 17th Jul 2011, ID #58716

The bad egg never hatches and if you put it in the pc it will multiply and take up all the space. serves you right for trying to cheat same thing happens if you try the mew goldsilver trick on the remakes. I dont know if this is true but you might be able to get rid of it by letting it multiply in your pc and deleting all of them I'm not sure but no, the bad egg dosent hatch and the only way to get a jarachi is to trade with a friend or an official nintindo event.

your smart and true but i really need your help you see i have a bad egg do you know how many steps to get the bad egg to hatch so far i've probably walked over 200,000-300,000 steps and nothing happened i also caught magmar with flame body because if you have a pokemon with the ability of flame body it hatches quick......lie still hasnt hatched oh ya the pokemon inside the egg is supposed to be a jirachy (i used an action replay) so can you help the egg came with a ball capsual so i cant do anything till this stupid egg hatches. plzzzzzzz tell me. plzzzz!!!

Actually, the ditto is just breeding that starter to make an egg. This will happen with any pokemon you put in there that is able to breed. The 2-5 hours thing is false. When getting an egg from daycare, it doesnt matter how long you leave the pokemon in there what matters is the number of steps you take. When leveling up pokemon in the daycare, the same principle applies. The pokemon in the daycare will gain 1 exp point for every step you take.
hope this was helpful.
