    ===============================================================================
    
    Hello Everybody, and welcome to another one of my FAQs. This FAQ will tell you
    everything you could possibly need to know about Poke Spots. It will tell you
    which Pokemon you can catch at each spot, what events occur, and how to catch
    Pokemon at Poke Spots for those of you new to them. I hope you enjoy this FAQ
    and if you have any questions please email me using the email address provided
    at the end of the FAQ. If there is a certain section of the FAQ you would like
    to look at, press Ctrl + F on the keyboard and search for the section you want
    provided in the Table Of Contents. Thank you for reading and enjoy!

      B.                              About Poke Spots 
    ===============================================================================
    
    Unlike Pokemon Collosuem, XD allows you to actually catch Pokemon! While there
    isn't very many Pokemon that can be cauht, it is a nice change from Collosuem.
    The places where you can catch Pokemon are called Poke Spots. There is three
    Poke Spots. Rock Poke Spot, Oasis Poke Spot, and Cave Poke Spot. They were
    discovered by Duking. (Thank you Duking, for these wonderful little places!)
    
    ===============================================================================
      C.                              Rock Poke Spot 
    ===============================================================================
    (Item Checklist: 10 Poke Snacks, Spot Monitor)
    
    When you first arrive here at the Rock Poke Spot, you'll see Duking in an
    interview with a Reporter. Duking will ask you to join the interview and hand
    you 10 Poke Snacks to demonstrate how they work. Set a few of them on the stone
    circle behind you. Once you do that Duking will give you the PDA attachment
    Spot Monior. Before Duking leaves, he will mark the Oasis Poke Spot on your
    map.
    
    To cath Pokemon at the Poke Spots, you will need to leave Poke Snacks on the
    tray in the center of a Poke Spot. The Spot Monitor allows you to keep tabs on 
    each Poke Spot as you continue along your journey. The monitor will alert
    you when a Pokemon shows up at a Poke Spot. If the signal is slow, it means a
    common Pokemon has shown up. If it's faster, it means a rare Pokemon has shown
    up. How many Snacks you left for the Pokemon will determine how long it will
    wait for you, so you'd best hurry! 
    
    The list below shows each Pokemon that can be caught at the Rock Poke Spot.
    Including their Type,(Normal, Ground etc.) and their Rarity, evolved forms
    which they change into after gaining levels, by using stones on them,(Water
    Stone, Fire Stone etc.) or by leveling up when friendly to the trainer or
    holding certain held items when leveling up:

    If you run out of Poke Snacks, don't worry about it. You can always buy more
    of them at any Poke Mart in the Orre Region.

    when you first arrive, you will see Duking, yet again. He'll mention that
    he needs your help in catching three Pokemon; Trapinch, Surskit, and Wooper.
    If you catch one of them, you can trade them for one of the Pokemon listed

    +--------------+--------------+--------------+-------------+-------------+
    
    When you first enter the Cave Poke Spot, you'll see Trudly and Folly. 
    Shortly afterwards, Miror B will show up, and it's time to fight!
    
    +============================================+===========================+
    |  BOSS BATTLE: WANDERER MIROR B/Pokemon: Three Lombres at Lvl 17, Shadow|
    |  Pokemon: Voltorb, Lvl 20.                                             |
    +==============+==============+==============+===========================+
    | One notable thing about Miror B is that he has 3 Lombres, which are    |
    | Grass-and-Water-type. They have Rain Dance, a Water-type move to power |
    | their Water-type moves, and Mega Drain, a Grass-type move to absorb    |
    | their opponents HP and heal themselves. You can use a Grass-type Poke- |
    | yourself to absorb their Grass-and-Water-type moves. Or you can use a  |
    | or a Flying type Pokemon and they're both strong Defensively and Of-   |
    | fensesively against Grass Pokemon. Don't forget to snag his Shadow     |
    | Pokemon Voltorb, which will be a very nice addition to your team!      |
    ==========================================================================
    
    After you beat Miror B, Folly and Trudly will run away and drop their Miror
    Radar. This device works pretty much like the Shadow Monitor, except it
    alerts you when Miror B has been spotted in a certain area! When the Miror B
    symbol appears, go to Key Items in your inventory and see where Miror B's
    locaton is!
    
    He normally visits places or battles. So when you enter the location it
    says he's at, head for the Collosuem. If Fudly and Trolly are there, you
    are at the right place.
    
    ===============================================================================
     F.                       The Munchlax Encounter!        
    ===============================================================================
    (Item Checklist: Herbal-type Medicine, 10 Poke Snacks)
    
    Sometimes when your Spot Monitor goes off, you'll head to the Poke Spot and En-
    counter Munchlax.(whom my girlfriend says is adorably cute) You can't catch
    Munchlax, but keep it busy until it's owner appears. Once the owner appears,
    you'll find out it's the Herbal Shop Owner's Pokemon. She'll apologize for
    Munchlax eating up your Poke Snacks and give you 10 Poke Snacks and a free
    sample of Herbal medicine. Her shop is now-open in Gateon Port! And yes,
    you guessed it, Munchlax is the pre-evovled form of Snorlax.(Snorlax has gotta
    be the most boring damn Pokemon ever)
    
    ===============================================================================
     G.                       The Bonsly Encounter        
    ===============================================================================
    (Item Checklist: Leftovers, Bonsly Card)
    
    When on the S.S. Libra, you'll encounter Bonsly, the pre-evovled form of
    Sudowoodo. You'll want to approach it slowly by applying little pressure to the
    control stick very slowly and sneak up behind it. But just when you are about
    to catch it your PDA will sound and scare it off, but it will leave behind
    Leftovers.
    
    After you encounter it at S.S. Libra there is a chance you'll encounter it
    again at a Poke Spot like you did with Munchlax. Once you've encountered it
    again, you'll have to approach it slowly like you did on the S.S. Libra. Once
    you've caught it, it's owner will appear and reward you with the Bonsly Card
    which can be used for Battle Bingo in Realgam Tower!

    First off I would like to thank the following:
    
    You - for reading this FAQ.
    
    One of the readers - for pointing out that I had said Bonsly was the
    pre-evolved form of Snorlax, instead of Bonsly is the pre-evolved form of
