Talk:Sinnoh Route 209
My friend just found a Duskull on this route during the nighttime, but this article says that it is only found in Platinum. He is currently playing Pearl, so could anyone try it out on Diamond or Pearl and see if he's right? --☆FiMbUlWiNtEr2O|2☆ 01:56, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
- That should not happen. Duskull isn't in the regional dex in Pearl, so it shouldn't appear on a pre-NatDex route without the use of the Poké Radar or during a swarm, and R209 already has a swarm Pokémon and more than enough Radar Pokémon. If this actually happened legitimately, my best guess would be that it was an undocumented dongle Pokémon, most likely from Ruby. (Note that the GBA game only needs to be present at the main screen; dongle mode will still be in effect if it's removed after that point.) If your friend hasn't been near a GBA game and/or DS Phat/Lite, I am very, very certain that they are either mistaken or experiencing a glitch. —Minimiscience 02:10, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
- Also, the Pokédex in Pearl gives R224 as the only location of Duskull, as it should be. —Minimiscience 02:15, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
I added a trivia snip at the bottom of the page and Poke.geek removed it. It was about the route's melodic line being used in a Green Day song.
