How do you get the second generation starters?

  1. I got the pokemon platinum guide book and it says that you can get the second generation starters (Feraligator, Typhosion, and Magnesium {not sure how to spell})
    I thought emerald used the 3rd generation. So how do you get second generation pokemon?

  1. To do it yourself:

    1. Defeat the Elite 4 and get the National Dex in Emerald (you only get a choice of one of them). Have several GBA games with many of the hard to find Pokemon to trade to Emerald and get the National Dex slowly, but easily.

    2. Obtain their first evolutions in Pokemon Colosseum and transfer to a GBA game (story mode, pick one then get the other two in the Snagem Hideout and Shadow Pokemon Lab). Then you can breed for the starters (with a Ditto if they're Male).

    3. Clear Mt. Battle 3 times in Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness and transfer to a GBA game (choose one when you win all 100 Battles, then repeat for the other two).

    Otherwise, you have to ask for trades on the Boards.

  1. If you get the National Dex in Emerald, Birch will give you one of the 3 Johto starters. Then, you trade it over to Platinum. Since that can be tedious, you might be better off asking on the Trade Board.
