What you may not know about beginners Pokemon (unless you have all 3 of them) is once they get to there last evolved form no Pokemon has a huge advantage over another you might think infernape beats torterra since torterra is a grass type and infornape is fire but what you may not know is torterra is also part ground and fire is sensative to ground types(if I recall correctly I think(don't know for sure) fighting might also be sensitive to ground and infernape is also part fighting) and what about empolion beating infernape while water does beat fire empolion is also part steel and as I already mentioned infernape is part fighting and fighting beats steel and empolion and although empolion may not have type advantages over torterra it can learn ice beam and drill peck both good moves to fight grass types with
This bit of information I am giving you is only useful to know if you chose chimchar as your beginners Pokemon (you now how you have problems beating the first gym since chimchar has a type disadvantage well there are two ways to solve that problem one way is to evolve your chimchar (witch most beginners Pokemon evolve between level 16-19 and again at 36-40 this goes for all Pokemon games)this should be the time monferno becomes a fighting type or catch and train a wild machop on route 207 and you can put him in the pc after the gym battle because when your beginners Pokemon evolves it becomes a fighting type I also highly recommend you use fighting type moves if he goes against empolion since empolion is part steel
After you get the national dex on Pokemon diamond, you are able to catch a tyrogue.
Tyrogue can evolve into three different Pokemon and here is how:
If tyrogue reaches level 20 and it's attack is higher than it's defense, it will evolve into a Hitmonchan.
If tyrogue reaches level 20 and it's attack is lower than it's defense, it will evolve into a Hitmonlee.
If tyrogue reaches level 20 and it attack is the same as it's defense, it will evolve into a Hitmontop.
Hope this hint helped you.

To start a new game, go to the screen showing dialga and press and hold the following buttons: Up, Select, B
To get a pichu that knows Volt Tackle, you must mate a pikachu holding a light ball with a Pokemon in the same egg group, most perspectively I would say mate it with a male raichu or pikachu for easiest and best results.
You can catch Dialga using a dark ball and not the master ball. Just make sure you have plenty of them because you may need to try a few times to catch him. You really can use a dark ball so save that master ball until you really need it.
I have been having a hard time getting to the Survival Area but here it is. You have to get the national Pokedex. And to get it, you have to complete the regular Pokedex, take it to the professor and you have it. Now you can get to the Survival Area but look out for the strong Pokemon.
The best location to Defense EV Train is in Oreburgh Mine. There is an 80% chance that either Geodude or Onix appears. These Pokemon will all be under Level 10. Your Pokemon will earn 1 Defense EV Point for every Geodude or Onix it defeats. That 2 Defense EV Points for every Geodude or Onix if your Pokemon has Pokerus!
The best location to Special Defense EV Train is on Route 213 (Surf). There is a 65% chance that either Tentacool or Tentacruel appear. The Tentracool and Tentacruel will be between Levels 20 and 40. Your Pokemon will receive 1 Special Defense EV Point for every Tentacool it defeats; 2 Special Defense EV Points for every Tentacruel. That's 2 Special Defense EV Points for every Tentacool and 4 Special Defense EV Points for every Tentacruel if your Pokemon has Pokerus!
The best location to HP EV Train is on Route 212 - South (Surf). There is a 100% chance of either a Wooper or Quagsire appearing. They will be between Levels 20-40. Your Pokemon will receive 1 HP EV Point for every Wooper it defeats; 2 HP EV Points for every Quagsire. That's 2 HP EV Points for every Wooper and 4 HP EV Points for every Quagsire if your Pokemon has Pokerus.
The move Eruption is fantastic for Double Battles. Use the move when your Pokemon is at full HP and let your partner do the rest if one or more Pokemon are still standing.
The best location to Speed EV Train is on Route 203 (Good Rod). There is a 65% chance that Magikarp appears. The Magikarp will be between Level 10-25.

When you use the Calculator App of your Poketch, you will hear a Pokemon's Cry with your sum, product, etc.
Example: 1 + 0 = 1 (Bulbasaur's Cry - National Pokedex)
If you don't have a Pokemon Pokedex Entry at the number of your sum, product, etc, you will not hear a Pokemon's Cry.
The best location to Attack EV Train is on Route 207. There is 35%-55% chance that a Machop appears, depending on what time of day it is. The Machop(s) are very weak; all being under Level 10. Your Pokemon will receive 1 Attack EV Point for every Machop it defeats. That's 2 Attack EV Points for every Machop it defeats if it has Pokerus.
