Event Pokemon Guide

This section of the guide has been provided by PhilXZ

Pokemon Platinum has a wide array of special event Pokemon that are unlocked via certain items and sometimes trigger certain items and places in the game that can't be accessed without them. To attain these items you have to go to a Nintendo-hosted 'Nintendo Event' or use a code device like an Action Replay.

Mystery Gift Option: To obtain the Mystery Gift, which is necessary to obtan Nintendo Event Pokemon, talk to a TV couple . On the 3rd Floor of the Jubilife TV Station, you will find this couple. Normally s/he will ask you for a greeting for you to provide in battles however if you give him some keywords, he will activate the Mystery Gift function for you. The words are as follows: EVERYONE HAPPY WI-FI CONNECTION

*For all these events you will need the National Pokedex, a Pokedex upgrade given to you by Prof. Oak once you have seen all Sinnoh Pokemon and recorded them in your Sinnoh Dex.


Requirement: Oak's Letter, beat Pokemon League

How to Obtain: Once you have Oak's Letter, head to Route 224. The Route can be accessed through an entrance in the Victory Road cave. If you haven't defeated the Elite 4 and the Pokemon Champion this entrance is blocked by a man. Work your way through the trainers and wild Pokemon until you see Prof. Oak at a white rock. The professor will tell you a story and Shaymin will appear. It will notice you and run up the path it came from. Follow it up the path and you will come up to an island covered in flowers with Shaymin sitting on top of the highest mound ready to fight. If you capture it, be ready for a special treat!

Capture Bonus: Gracidea Flower

Requirements: Shaymin in 1st Party Slot

All items can be get during event time. The timing is according to your country but not all country can receive mysterious gift. The most consistent country is U.S and J.P but there are ways to get those mysterious gift also. Most of the time those Action Replay codes don't work. But if it does work, just simply go to pokemart in any town and meet a green suit man he will give you.

You can buy an action replay in any wal-mart, in the electronics section, close to the ds games. They cost somewhere between 20 and 30 dollars.

Well, A, I'm not sure it would work in Guinea, B, it's too late, it's not there anymore. You would have to use an action replay and find a working code. Sorry!
