Engima Stone

Starting July 31, North America players of Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver have 28 days to download the Enigma Stone, the key to unlocking Legendary Pokemon Latias and Latios. Legendary Pokemon Latias can be captured in Pokemon HeartGold. Her brother Latios can be captured in Pokemon SoulSilver. Both are exclusive to those games, unless the player has access to an Enigma Stone.

How does one get an Enigma stone?

From July 31 through August 27, The Pokemon Company and Nintendo are making the Enigma Stone available to Pokemon fans in North America. Players with wireless access will be able to download the special item, which eventually leads to a chance at catching Latios in HeartGold and Latias in SoulSilver.

In order to use the Enigma Stone, players will need to have beaten the Elite Four, claimed the National Pokedex, and have two or fewer Wonder Cards in their possession. Bulbapedia has a nifty little summary of how the deal goes down.

Just make sure you go online and claim your Enigma Stone before August 27. Then you can start worrying about how to use it to get dates.

Also note for players with Japanese games you can now download Goon Scizors over Wifi.

Great place to get items like Choice Specs.

Hey works for me. I just got the game and can't find one at all.

That and since I don't have pearl etc I miss out on all the other cool gifts they gave away for gold and silver.

Is it possible to just get one thread for all of the giveaways via in-store and WiFi instead of making a new one for each event? You could just change the title of the thread. There is like 4-5 threads on Pokemon on the first page, surely we can tie those together and funnel the traffic to one or two places.

I need some help...

I just got the new DSi Xl and connected it to my home wireless network. Everything works fine there.

However, when I go to get the Mystery Gift via Nintendo WFC within the main menu, it won't connect. When I look at my connection settings in the main menu of Pokemon, it says there are only 3 connections and my connection is established on connection 4 because of my advanced wireless setup (SSID is not broadcast and encryption is WPA2). What can I do?

EDIT: Nevermind I got it. Apparently, the WFC doesn't support WPA in games. Sooooo I have to downgrade to WEP or I'm kinda screwed lol. That's not going to happen so I need to find another solution.

Yeah. It's kinda silly that the DSi and DSi XL support WPA, but the DS games themselves do not.

You can do as myself and others have done, just downgrade it to WEP, do what you need to do with Nintendo WFC, then put the WPA security back up.

Okay, this may be a stupid question, but I'm still trying to learn all the Pokemon stuff.

I had already received the Yellow Forrest... after I connected my Pokewalker to the game the first time, it said I got it... So, is there anything special that this would give me that the other does not?

Also, how do I know if my Pikachu is a special one? I got three on the Pokewalker once I got the Yello Forrest, but I don't know if they are special or not?

Again, sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm just trying to make sure I learn everything.

If they Pikachu knows Surf or Fly, it is special

You won't be able to tell if the Pikachus are special until you load them back into your game. Of course, when you do that, you lose all your watts and have to walk some more before trying it again. Try only catching Pikachus when you see two or three exclamation points on the radar. That takes awhile too, but the chances that you've got a Surf or Fly Pikachu are better that way. Just be patient.

Thanks... I will put them on and check. I know a few of them had three exclamation marks, so hopefully I got lucky :D

Thanks again!

Actually, you *can* sorta tell which pokemon you're getting.

First off, know that the game picks 3 pokemon when you go for your walk. One common, one semi-rare, and one rare one. If you check the Serebii page, you get one each of the A/B/C pokemon. Thus, on a particular walk, you get the Surf Pikachu, you will NOT encounter the Fly Pikachu.

When you use the Pokeradar, there are 4 different scenarios:
One !, then the encounter: Group C pokemon.
Two !'s, then the encounter: Either a group B/C pokemon.
Two !'s, one !!, then the encounter: Either a group A/B pokemon.
Two !'s, one !!, one !!!, then the encounter: Guaranteed group A pokemon.

Since you can only hold 3 pokemon, and your watts get sent to the DS whenever you sync, it's in your best interest to only capture !! and !!! pokemon.

Thanks for the thread. Downloaded Winner's Path this morning. Although I've put the game down for now, I'm sure I'll return to it eventually.
