Daily, Weekly & Special Events

As in the previous games there are regular special events in the game that are time and day based, or based upon other criteria.  The following events are of particular value for working on your Dex:

-- Daily --

- Buena's Points: After you obtain the Blue Card Key Item you can listen to Buena on the radio at 2AM, 5AM, 8AM, 11AM, 2PM, 5PM, 8PM, and 11PM to hear the password.  Once you hear it, go to Buena and tell her the password to earn points on your card.  Once you have enough points you can exchange them for items.

- Goldenrod Underground Mall: Each day the shops available at the Underground Mall change.  The following schedule applies:

Sunday: Hair Dresser (Younger) & Herb Shop
Monday: Bargain Shop
Tuesday: Hair Dresser (Older)
Wednesday: Hair Dresser (Younger)
Thursday: Hair Dresser (Older)
Friday: Hair Dresser (Younger)
Saturday: Hair Dresser (Older) & Herb Shop

- Lottery: in Goldenrod City at the Radio Station, you can enter the traditional lottery each day; the day's number is matched against all of your Pokemon numbers (both in your party and in storage).  Top prize in this Lotto is a Master Ball.

- Seals:  Once you have obtained the Seal Case, you can visit a house in Olivine City to get new seals every day.  Seals are applied to your balls to generate special effects when you choose a team member.

- Swarms: the location for each swarm is announced by the Professor on his radio program.  Simply tune in to the station to find out what the swarm location and type is.

- Vocabulary Expansion:  On Route 16 there is a house in which the Vocabulary Man resides, and if you visit him each day he will teach you a new word to add to your vocabulary.
