Now there has been a lot of confusion with this cheat so I will try to make it as clear as possible.

Other cheats said that setting your date forward on your ds would reset the lottery in the jubilife tv station. I tested it and it wouldnt work so messed with the times and figured out that ............
1.Setting your date back 2 days
2.setting time to 11:59
And 3.WAITING until it hits 00:00

Go into jubilife tv station and you can get another try for the first prize masterball

This cheat will show you how to get Darkrai and Cresselia


After you beat the Elite Four. Go to Canalave City and go to the house located on top of the sailer. Go in the house and there should be a mom and a boy.

After you capture Cresselia the house with the locked door will be unlocked! The guy in the house will say he has been waiting for you. Sleep in the bed and you will get transported to new moon island and darkrai will be waiting there. I suggest you save before you start battling.

Go To Your Poke'dex and select a Poke'mon, then go to the "Cry" selection. You will see a Play button and a Repeat button in the lower left. Hit Repeat and then Play. After the cry starts playing touch and hold down the moving lines underneath the Play Button. The cry will move three times slower and you will here the weirdest cries EVER!!!
