Isn't Qwilfish availabe in Iron Island in Platinum? according to Qwilfish's article, it is. Solar Dragon 10:48, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
- Corrected. Thanks. —darklordtrom 10:56, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
Metal Coat in Pt
In Platinum, there's a new cave area near the exit, which has a Metal Coat sitting in the middle (plus a hidden nugget). I'm guessing this is new to Pt since DP maps I've seen of Iron Island don't have this feature. Not sure if you can also get it from Byron (not that far yet). Anywho, added.

Weird bug in Pt?
While I was playing through Platinum and was in the caves of Iron Island, I ran into a weird bug. I had been leveling up my Pokémon quite a lot when wild Pokémons suddenly just stopped appearing. I changed the floor and then returned and even turned off the power but they still wouldn't appear. After I changed the first Poké in my party, the wild ones started appearing again. I'm sure I didn't use a repel. Also I took about 1000 steps so even if I had used one by an accident, it's effect would have ran off. Or is this just some sort of in-game action that I don't know of?

- Who was the first Pokémon your party? Stunky/Skuntank? If it had the ability Stench, it would have kept Pokémon away. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 17:55, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
Vibrava, Turtwig or Luxray but none of them has the Stench ability, neither has anyone else on my party. Buglaux 22:41, 1 March 2011 (UTC +2)
- I assume your Luxray has Intimidate, then. If this is true, that's your answer. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 21:04, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
I never realized Intimidate can work in that way. I still don't believe that it was the cause (referring to the amount of steps taken) since it lowers the chance only by 50%, not completely. Buglaux 14:31, 2 March 2011 (UTC +2)
- Well, you don't have a battle encounter every step, you might have generated a room with harder-to-get encounters, and your Luxray is probably far higher than in level than the residents in Iron Cave (which is what makes it work). It's no bug, that's for sure, so this is probably the answer, and you had bad luck. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 13:33, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm playing Platinum now, and in the right section of B2F I encountered a few level 34 Gravelers.I see in the Wiki that they only go to 33. Is that a typo in the wiki? As another "landmark" so you know which area I'm in, I'm in the area with the two workers, of which one has two Magnemite and the other has a Steelix. I also encountered a level 35 Steelix.
