Bug contest shiny stone - possible to get pre national dex?

#1Disturbed13Posted 3/28/2010 10:02:06 AM
Been doing a bit of research - togetic is worthless to me unless i can evolve him before the elite 4. Anyways, the other methods of getting shiny stones require the national dex, but I have yet to see any information claim that you have to have the national dex to get the shiny stone as a reward for winning the bug hunting contest. Can anyone confirm whether I can get a shiny stone in this manner before I get the national dex?

Anyways, if I can do this, i can only try the contest once per day whem it is available, right? Also, I can change the day/time on my DS itself to make it a day when the contest is being run?

Thanks

You can't get a shiny stone from the BCC until after the national dex.

You can buy a Shiny Stone for 3000 athlete points in the Pokethlon on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Pre-National Dex, the Bug-Catching Contest prizes are:

1st Place: Sun Stone
2nd Place: Everstone
3rd Place: Sitrus Berry
Consolation Prize: Shed Shell

Sorry, you're out of luck.

Also, if the Shiny Stone really was accessible pre-National Dex, wouldn't Togekiss have been in the Johto Dex?

Not pre-National Dex.

I blame serebii.net for not having it marked anywhere that the prizes were different on the page I was looking at ( http://www.serebii.net/pokearth/johto/pokethlondome.shtml ). >_>

Hmm, i odd that serebii doesn't list any differences in prizes for the bug contest depending on which pokedex you have... well this sucks. I've spent a little time levelnig my togetic to find out its useless until after i get a national dex at which point i wouldn't use it anyways because it has a lowsly ability...

Damnit it gamefreaks. Why make a pokemon apart of the plot that sucks until after you'vre cleared everything =/

If you'd like Serebii to change something on the site, email him about it. I asked him if he could separate the pre- and post-National Dex items for the Pokeathlon, and the site was updated shortly afterward.

So, I still have yet to use the online, but if I understand correctly, I can put a pokemon up for trade on the trade network (or whatever is called) in pearl, then load gold up and then do the same (obviousl with the item attached). Anyways, I assume I can't trade with pearl to do this until I have the National Dex?

I kinda figured that Togeplane may have been a national dex pokemon, however I was thinking he wouldn't as togepi/etic were kind of a big deal at the begginning of the game and they are pretty useless unless fully evolved, bah!, Bah I say!

Thanks ppl
