Go to the Route 16 Gate and speak to the guy west of the electronic board. He'll give you a Macho Brace, which doubles EV's recieved, but lowers speed.
Visit Big Stadium and Small Court frequently to get free items from some of the trainers you defeat.
On the west side of the 1st floor in Relic Castle, speak to the backpacker and she'll give you either the Cover or Plume Fossil. Restore them in Nacrene City.
In Narrow Street at Castelia City, there's a man hiding behind a dumpster that will give you TM 70 once you walk past him.
Smash Challenge rock in Pinwheel forest with a Fighting Type Pokemon once a day to get a Star Piece, which you can sell for alot of money.
The only way to get berries in this game (because you can't plant them) is to battle Pokemon Rangers. They always give you a berry when you defeat them.
There's a building in Opelucid City that houses trainers itching to do Rotation battles with you. This is the best place to do Rotation battles.
Here are a list of pokeballs that do better ( from greatest to least);
(* = Depends on situation)
Its easy to get it, but it costs much money. If you want the TM hyper beam, you will need 90.000 cash, go to opelucid city and head to route 9. In the middle of the small route (before you enter that big building) is a shop within you can buy anything. Go to right and go upstairs and talk to the man that is selling TM's(he actually sells just 2 things...)now you see hyper beam and giga impact. Buy hyper beam for 90.000 cash, and here you go! You got your hyper beam. If you have victini he can learn it.
To get some legends you have to trade. For most legendarys, you have to trade/trade negotiate. Others you can catch. If you want rotom(some say it is a legend) go to the caravan on route 12/13, with a ditto( on your team) and talk to the lady. Then you can trade and get a rotom named Eeks. And that is how to get rotom.
Be sure to have a level 52 in your party and it knows HM surf. Zekrom is easy to catch in an Ultra Ball if it's HP is in red.
Once you beat the elite four and N, the easter cities will be unlocked. But be careful, all of their Pokemon are in the 60s. The Pokemon you used in the elite four should be fine, and I went in with low 50s! All your stats should be higher, but don't expect a 1-hit-KO right away.
There are actually two places where you can get a Fossil, one place is within Relic Castle which is in Desert Resort just off of Route 4, enter in the Right entrance and visit a man on that floor and he will let you choose either a Cover Fossil or a Plume Fossil.
Cover Fossil Restores Tirtouga
Plume Fossil Restores Archen
The second place where you will be able to get fossils is from a worker who works on the first floor in Twist Mountain, come visit him each day and each day he will give you a fossil. This is how you can collect the rest of the fossils and add them to you Pokedex.
Armor Fossil Restores Sheidon
Claw Fossil Restores Anorith
Dome Fossil Restores Kabouto
Helix Fossil Restores Omanyte
Old Amber Restores Aerodactyl
Root Fossil Restores Lileep
Skull Fossil Restores Cranidos
Now to restore the fossils that you get, you can go to the Pokemon Museum, that is in Nacrene City and talk to the lady who is standing just right of the Reception area, she will restore the Pokemon from the fossil just make sure that you have room in your party for the restored Pokemon.
Alright, There might be some confusion over the getting a shiny thing, but I'm here to clear it up;
Shinies are found by random chance. After I beat the Elite four the first time, the first 2 Pokemon I found were shiny. Yep. A Drifbloom and a Petitil. I also found a couple more. Somehow, when I stay in grass a long time, and I walk around without getting jumped, the chance increases.
This is just a theory. No flames.
Most people have troubles catching this guy. This is what I did, First I battled it and defeated it to see it's moves and what it does, I walked out and back in because he respawns till you get him. I noticed that he always uses endure first so try to use a move that will kill it but it wont. This will leave it will 1HP throw a pokeball at it and it should be caught. (yes, I indeed did catch it will 1 POKEBALL)
This can be easy or hard. 1st you must have a friend with a DS or 2 DS's. Go to castelia city and head toward route 4(take any path to get to the path). When you get on the road that leads to route 4 look the last left hand building. Go in and go to the top floor. Look for a man next to a PC talk to him and say "EVERYONE HAPPY" then he will ask for more then say "SIMPLE CONNECTION". This will unlock the relocator. Save and turn off. Find the person with the DS(or another DS). Take one DS turn it on with Pokemon white or black in, scroll down at the menu and click the relocator. Take the other DS and go to DS download play and let them sync. Once synced it will show up to 4 Pokemon and an item( no one should have this in the English version without hack). The Pokemon are the 3 event legendary beasts and Celebi. Once transfered play Pokemon again. Take celebi out of your poke storage, then go to castelia street in castelia city. Look for the GAMEFREAK building go in and talk to the girl reading the book to the little boy. The boy is actually a zorua and will asked to be caught(must have at least one pokeball with you in order to get him/her). Next get the 3 legendary beasts out of your storage and head to route 16 east of Nimbasa city then head north form the route to lostlorn forest. (save your game)Go to the top of lostlorn forest and into the camper talk to the lady and she will turn into a Pokemon of yours(this Pokemon is actually Zoroark), Attack once if possible without defeating it, then attempt to capture him/her. And there ya go thats how you get them!
