I really need help getting pas - Pokemon Platinum Questions for Nintendo DS
I really need help getting past the Hearthome Gym...this is actually my second time playing Platinum. The first time, I didn't finish the game but (for some reason) decided to restart the experience. The first time, I think I got past the Hearthome Gym pretty quickly--I don't remember how...but I did. :P
Now though, I've battled and lost to Fantina at least 10 times. I think it might have to do with the fact that last time, I had much stronger and useful Pokemon. My current team includes:
None of my Pokemon know bite, which apparently is very useful against Fantina's Pokemon. My strategy's been bulking up on super potions and sending Ponyta out first with about 2 flame wheels to finish off her Duskull. Then I *try* to do the same against her Haunter, but Ponyta always gets knocked out then. So I replace him with my Monferno, who finishes off Haunter, and gets finished off by her Mismagius (though not without inflicting some damage--at least half of Mismagius's HP)
I've battled as many trainers as I could find, even going all the way back to Eterna Forest. But I only managed to get my Monferno from 29 to 31...
I need some huge help. In fact, any help would be appreciated!
