Re: New Platinum Strategies

A few new things to add to those who are interested. It's been awhile since I posted here but I've still been working on this on and off, just not as much as I was earlier since work really took off these last few weeks/months, and there was a long while where my computer was down since I took it ap...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

I had totally forgotten about the X-Special Defense at the beginning of the game, I think I'm going to amend that into my route now, I also think I'll need to add another Super Potion to my shopping trip then because if I add another turn of set-up on Duskull I'll be at a risky HP range. I can pick ...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

A little update to my status on this game. I'd been streaming attempts on the weekends lately on my twitch channel, and it took me a long long long time to finally get the RNG manipulation down to a point where I can actually hit my seed every now and then. I rarely ever got a run off since it was s...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

The TM for Hidden Power is only available in Diamond and Pearl. It isn't an option in Platinum.

Racing Platinum

Anyone think they'd be interested in doing a full game Any% Glitchless race of this game sometime? I've been having an itch to race it lately and can't seem to find anyone interested. Let me know if you're dtf so we can work out a time. You can just leave a message here, private message me, or hit m...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

The metronome idea is very interesting. I'm not sure how I would go about RNG manipulating a Kricketot that's holding one, that seems pretty daunting. But I could see some potential uses for it to basically guarantee some damage ranges and pokes that are 2HKOs, and I'm sure there are some things I'm...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

Spent a few days away from this, then came back. Crasher Wake is pretty brutal. Intimidate Gyarados puts a dent in any of the strats I've tried to make. Usually I lead with Infernape, hit it with a -1 Return, tank Waterfall which does anywhere between 92-110HP, switch to Bibarel, tank a Brine, use a...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

It looks like I'll be keeping that X-Attack for Fantina now instead of using it on Roark. I can see why I wanted to use it on Roark, now that I went back and looked at that fight again. The problem is Onix and his Screeches. If Onix uses Screech on you, Cranidos's Headbutt does 40HP, and you're like...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

Alright I made a table of all the experience gained from spinners/roamers up to Blackbelt Gregory. Spinners: Lass Sarah: 90 Exp, $112 Aroma Lady Taylor: 289 Exp, $352 Galactic Grunt (Valley Windworks): 150 Exp, $520 Hiker Daniel: 514 Exp, $389 Hiker Kevin: 1266 Exp, $608 Hiker Justin: 774 Exp, $640 ...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

Currently I'm using the X-Attack at Roark, but I think after taking another look at that fight it might be better to save it for Fantina. My Roark battle goes like this: Geodude: 1x X-Attack, 1x Leer, 1x Mach Punch Onix: 2x Mach Punch Cranidos: 1x Mach Punch And now that I think about it, I think my...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

Well it turns out that I was right in thinking that using two Rare Candies to hit level 30 before Black Belt Gregory prevents you from getting to Infernape before Rival 4 in Pastoria (this is without hitting any spinners). To remedy this, I want to plan on being level 29 before Gregory instead of le...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

Another status update. Had to take a week break from this since I went traveling for work! WOOO! Anyways came back and started hacking away at my new route again. Just a general question, how long does it take others to route the game themselves? I can rarely go for more than a two or three hour ses...

Re: New Platinum Strategies

Thanks for the replies everyone, means a lot to know that others are still looking at different strats. I'm really happy about that. :) Anyways, today I spent a long while routing. I think I have a nice consistent route up to Route 215 (the rain route). Jupiter can be a little bit of a pain with her...

New Platinum Strategies

Lately I've been re-routing Platinum using Chimchar. I believe Eeckast made a route awhile ago, and I've been referencing that, but I've made a few changes so far that save time. I'd like to share some of my findings and strats with the community to get some feedback on them since I could be overloo...

Re: RNG Manipulation Help

Oh derp, I never noticed that. I feel stupid now. Well the last hour I've been getting closer to hitting the correct seed I want then. Usually I'm hitting a delay around 5291-5293, never anything higher that that. I've also hit 0 seconds more consistently, even though a few 1 seconds still pop in. G...

Re: RNG Manipulation Help

Thanks guys, I'll try that. I was getting frustrated because I've hit my seed about six or seven times now, but every time I've hit it at 1 second, instead of 0 second. Just out of curiosity, I've been doing this on the original phat DS. Is the DS Model itself what causes this time mis-matches betwe...

Well, I wouldn't call this a bump since it's still the last topic we've had for this game. I had stopped trying to do the RNG Manipulation because I thought it was too complicated for me, but I'm giving it a shot again and now I'm understanding it more I think. Anyways I have a question.

RNG Manipulation Help

I asked on the IRC, no one responded. I'll ask here and hopefully get some help. I'm getting started on using RNG Manipulation to manipulate a great starter for me in Platinum. I'm trying to manipulate a Chimchar. I have seen the RNG Manipulation guide on the wiki, but it leaves a lot of unanswered ...
