As posted in a news article a while ago, the dates for North America's For the Bride and Shaymin have been released already. In fact, it starts tomorrow. It will last until April 30th. While Shaymin cannot be transfered from Ranger into Diamond or Pearl the way Darkrai and Riolu could be, it'll be a fun mission to check out if you liked the game. A reason to play it some more. Nintendo of Europe has just announced that their own mission will last only up until March 31st. You can check out the official sites for both of the sections of the world for more information regarding this.
We've also finished a new page. When the japanese Diamond and Pearl games were released, some GameFAQs members came together and made a list of trainers that are helpful for EV Training. Now, a few years later, that information has been recreated as a page on the site! It's been made by MikkelDemey, one of our amazing adminstrators here. You can check it out here or just by clicking on "Guide" and scrolling down to find a link to it. All North American names have been placed within the guide, along with exact location descriptions, to help you locate the specific trainer without getting into unwanted battles.
Mikkel has also completed a page detailing the various formulas that the game uses to calculate stats. It also documents what trainers may use to make various stat calculations that may not occur within the game. Click to view the Stat Formulae page.
As per request nza has added a Dex QuickSearch box within the content area of all PokéDex pages, assuming you have turned the menus for the Dex off. This should make the search a bit easier to use when searching within the PokéDex. Check here for more on the QuickSearch function of our PokéDex.
