'''Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンXD {{tt|闇|やみ}}の{{tt|旋風|かぜ}}ダーク・ルギア''' ''Pokémon XD: Whirlwind of Darkness, Dark Lugia'') is [[Genius Sonority]]'s second Pokémon game for the [[Nintendo GameCube]]. The "XD" in the title stands for "eXtra Dimension."
+
'''Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness''' (Japanese: '''ポケモンXD {{tt|闇|やみ}}の{{tt|旋風|かぜ}}ダーク・ルギア''' ''Pokémon XD: Whirlwind of Darkness, Dark Lugia'') is [[Genius Sonority]]'s second and final Pokémon game for the [[Nintendo GameCube]] as well as the second RPG in the Pokémon series for a home console. The game features a [[Battle Mode]] akin to that of its [[Pokémon Colosseum|predecessor]], as well as a Story Mode featuring a brand new plot set in the [[Orre]] region.
   
The game once again takes place in the [[Orre]] region, about five years after the events of [[Pokémon Colosseum]]. In their second attempt at world domination, the criminal organization [[Cipher]] has created a [[Shadow Lugia]], a.k.a "XD001," which they believe is immune to purification.

==Plot==
  +
{{spoilers}}
  +
The game once again takes place in the [[Orre]] region, about five years after the events of {{pkmn|Colosseum}}. In their second attempt at world domination, the criminal organization [[Cipher]] has created a [[Shadow Lugia]], codenamed ''XD001'', claimed to be immune to purification. A young {{pkmn|Trainer}}, [[Michael]], aims to defeat Cipher and prevent their plans.
   
==Characters==
+
The game opens with a shot of the [[S.S. Libra]] cruising through the sea, when suddenly some helicopters appear overhead with [[Shadow Lugia]], which picks up the ship. The sailors fall out and watch in awe as it flies away, carrying the ship with it.
See [[:Category:XD characters|XD characters]] category.
 
   
==Locations==
+
The protagonist, [[Michael]], finds himself using a {{p|Salamence}} to battle a {{p|Metagross}}. No matter what the outcome is, when the battle is over the player will then find himself in the [[Pokémon HQ Lab]], where it is revealed that the battle was merely a simulation. Michael then speaks with [[Professor Krane]] and {{OBP|Lily|XD}}. Prof. Krane comments on Michael's battle skills, and Lily remembers that she hasn't seen [[Jovi]], Michael's younger sister, since lunch.
See [[:Category:XD locations|XD locations]] category.
 
   
==Pokémon==
+
Lily asks Michael to look for her. Michael finds a [[P★DA]] that Professor Krane left him in his room and gets an e-mail telling him to ask [[Adon]], who was playing hide-and-seek with Jovi. Adon tells Michael to look in [[Dr. Kaminko]]'s house. After watching a report about the missing cargo ship that was carrying loads of Pokémon (the S.S. Libra), Michael goes to Kaminko's house, where he battles by [[Chobin]], who mistakes him for a burglar. After fending him off, Jovi shows up and Michael takes Jovi home.
===Starting===
 
*{{p|Eevee}} - [[Level]] 10
 
   
===Snaggable===
+
Back at the HQ Lab, Michael talks to Prof. Krane and obtains the [[Snag Machine]], a machine that allows its owner to snag Shadow Pokémon from other Trainers. To complement the machine, Aidan adds a Shadow Monitor to the P★DA. When Professor Krane goes to ready the battle simulator for a test, some men come in and kidnap Professor Krane. Michael follows them outside and battles the leader, [[Naps]], who is using a {{pkmn2|Shadow}} {{p|Teddiursa}}, which Michael snags. However, Prof. Krane is taken away by his captors. Aidan mentions that Prof. Krane is crucial to the Purification Chamber project (a device that allows Shadow Pokémon to be purified), and that there is nothing they can do without him. Lily then says they can complete it themselves, and sends Michael to [[Gateon Port]] to retrieve a crucial part, with Jovi tagging along.

====Legendary Pokémon====

At Gateon Port, Jovi runs into [[Zook]], who sends out his Shadow {{p|Zangoose}} in anger. Before he can do anything else, however, a mysterious wealthy man, [[Mr. Verich]], steps in and has one of his bodyguards defeat Zook. Michael and Jovi retrieve the machine part from the mechanic [[Perr]] (snagging a few Shadow Pokémon on the way) and return to the HQ Lab.
The [[PokéBall]] depends on what was used.
 
   
=====Lugia=====
+
Lily mentions that there is a place in [[Agate Village]] that can purify Shadow Pokémon, and Michael heads there. While there, he meets Eagun, the elder of Agate Village, who shows Michael the [[Relic Stone]], a stone that has the power to purify Shadow Pokémon. Eagun allows Michael to purify one Pokémon at the Stone, and Michael returns to the HQ Lab.

Michael then travels to the [[Cipher Lab]] to rescue Prof. Krane, and successfully does so while defeating Cipher Admin [[Lovrina]]. While at the lab, he finds a [[Data ROM]], and heads to Pyrite Town to speak with [[Secc]] and [[Nett]] at [[ONBS]], to see if they can decode it. After receiving some tips from [[Duking]] about [[Pokespots]], Michael receives a text from [[Nett]] saying to come back to [[Pyrite Town]]. [[Cipher]] has taken over [[ONBS]], and it's up to Michael to defeat them on his way up to see [[Nett]].

Michael's next stop is [[Phenac City]]. After his arrival, he finds that the city has been taken over by [[Cipher]]. After defeating the [[Cipher Peon]]s, he heads into the Phenac Stadium and defeats Cipher Admin [[Snattle]], freeing Phenac City.

Later, Michael is tipped off by Phenac's [[Trest|mayor]] about Cipher sticking around a strange building, and is also requested by a young girl in [[Pyrite Town]] to go save her Pokémon aboard the [[S.S. Libra]]; but both the strange building and the S.S. Libra are inaccessible due to the heavy sands that Michael's scooter can't pass. After [[Robo Groudon|another misunderstanding]] with [[Chobin]], Michael is able to get advanced wheels that can take him through the heavy sands. Although Michael can find the {{p|Bonsly|specific creature he was requested to find}}, it flees when startled by the [[PDA]], and all the other Pokémon supposedly aboard the ship have also disappeared. After encountering and dueling some more Cipher members, [[Team Snagem]] goons ambush Michael; by using {{m|Sleep Powder}}, they knock him out and steal his [[Snag Machine]] from him.

Michael then re-encounters [[Zook]] from [[Gateon Port]] at the [[Cipher Key Lair]], the strange building Justy told him about, but he cannot even attempt to snag his Shadow {{p|Zangoose}}. Also, two bulky guards make the key lair inaccessible to Michael, leaving him trapped out.

Fortunately, [[Secc]] at [[ONBS]] directs Michael to [[Hordel]] at the [[Outskirt Stand]]; he directs Michael to the [[Snagem Hideout]]. After battling through the swarm of Snagem members, Michael defeats the leader [[Gonzap]] and reclaims his [[Snag Machine]]; but when they both realize that they are both trying to defeat [[Cipher]], Gonzap agrees to help Michael through the guards. The same {{p|Gloom}} that put Michael to sleep puts the two bulky guards to sleep, letting Michael enter the [[Cipher Key Lair]]; after intensely battling through the many {{pkmn2|Shadow}}-enabled peons in it, and then after shutting down the factory thus ceasing the production of all Shadow Pokémon, Michael confronts and battles the third {{tc|Cipher Admin}}—[[Gorigan]].

=====Moltres=====
+
After defeating the large, ape-like man, [[Mr. Verich]] appears on video and reveals that he is actually [[Greevil]], the true master of Cipher, and that he is hiding on [[Citadark Island]], but the island is in a very stormy area of sea and almost always has terrible weather, making it almost impossible to breach. With the help of [[Makan]], Michael—after getting the [[Master Ball]] from [[Professor Krane]]—enables the [[Robo Kyogre]], and journeys to [[Cipher]]'s last stronghold.

There, he battles through [[Lovrina]], [[Snattle]] and [[Gorigan]] a second time and an entire horde of Pokémon, and even battles [[Ardos]] and [[Eldes]], who are two more {{tc|Cipher Admin|Cipher Admins}} and [[Greevil]]'s bodyguards. After going through everyone, Michael battles [[Greevil]] after snagging or defeating [[Shadow Lugia]]. He defeats him, and it is then revealed that Ardos and Eldes are his sons. Ardos wishes to blow up Citadark Island, sacrificing Michael and all the Cipher members and Pokémon on the island so Cipher can live on, but he is ultimately spurned by Eldes, who convinces Greevil that Cipher is finished after being defeated a second time. Ardos storms off, and Eldes and Greevil decide to surrender to the police, thus ensuring Orre's safety.

Michael can complete the [[Orre Colosseum]] after this. The five Cipher Admins appear in competitions there, along with Gonzap and his Team Snagem followers as well as Chobin piloting Robo Groudon. Notably, when challenged, Ardos hints of his plans to resurrect Cipher, and upon being defeated, he labels Michael as Cipher's biggest threat.

==Gameplay==
  +
Much like {{pkmn|Colosseum}}, Pokémon XD features a similar 3D gameplay to the [[core series]] of Pokémon games. Mechanics in [[Pokémon battle]]s are directly adapted. Also, similar to its predecessor, Pokémon XD features mostly [[Double Battle]]s instead of Single Battles. Unlike in Colosseum however, [[wild Pokémon]] can be found, albeit only in specific places called [[Poké Spot]]s.
  +
  +
===Changes from Pokémon Colosseum===
  +
Some changes have been made to the region and gameplay from Pokémon Colosseum:
  +
*The {{player|main character}}, Wes, is replaced by Michael. Michael's starter Pokemon is a L10 Eevee instead of a L25 Espeon and L26 Umbreon.
  +
*Gameplay is less challenging until the post-game in Story Mode.
  +
*PCs now have 8 Boxes, and access to the Purify Chamber. The Save function has been removed from PCs, replaced with a Save option in the menu.
  +
*Hyper Mode is renamed Reverse Mode.
  +
*Shadow Pokémon can't be put in the Day Care.

  +
*There is now a '+' next to an opponent's Shadow Pokemon's level.
  +
*Battle Mode has been dropped, though the Orre Colosseum has been incorporated into the post-game Story Mode.
  +
*Calling a non-Shadow Pokemon raises its accuracy if it's not asleep.
  +
*The Orre Region map got a makeover, and is now viewed from a 3D rather than a top-down look.
  +
*Pyrite Cave, The Under and Phenac Stadium are inaccessible.
  +
*Pyrite Building has been turned into ONBS.
  +
*A Purify Chamber has been added.
  +
*Wild Pokemon, in-game trades, a Move Relearner, Battle Bingo and Battle Sims have been added.
  +

  +
*In Mt. Battle, the player is no longer asked if the player wants to advance to the next zone.
  +
*Areas 1-3 of Mt. Battle are available from the start.
  +
*Mt. Battle trainer levels now go up to Level 70 and trainers now use Legendary Pokémon.
  +
*TMs 07 (Hail), 46 (Thief) and 37 (Sandstorm) are gone.
  +
*The books in the basement of the Phenac Pokémon Center are now described as a Hoenn/Kanto region research.
  +
*Time Flutes are gone.
  +
*Poké Balls can now be bought at most Poké Marts.
  +

{{main|:Category:XD characters|XD characters}}
  +
The [[player character|protagonist]] of Pokémon XD is a young boy named [[Michael]], Trainer of an Eevee. Michael lives with his mother, {{OBP|Lily|XD}}, and his younger sister [[Jovi]]. [[Professor Krane]], a scientist researching Pokémon purification and a family friend, often assists him. A handful of other characters also appear, some returning from {{pkmn|Colosseum}} and some new.
  +
  +
The crime organization [[Cipher]] returns in the game with renewed plans. The syndicate includes five new admins: [[Lovrina]], [[Snattle]], [[Gorigan]], [[Ardos]] and [[Eldes]] hired by the team's [[Greevil|boss]]. [[Miror B.]] also appears in the game with new scopes in mind.
  +
  +
===Locations===
  +
{{main|:Category:XD locations}}
  +
The game's setting is in the [[Orre]] region, which has been altered after the five years that have passed. More [[wild Pokémon]] have started appearing, but Orre's land is still much less inhabited than other [[region]]s. Pokémon XD features locations not present in Colosseum, as well as landmarks such as [[Mt. Battle]] returning.

These Pokémon are not catchable, but they have special roles in the game. The Herbalist's Munchlax will often appear at a Poké Spot and make the hero receive a false alarm that a wild Pokémon has appeared to eat his Poké Snacks. When the hero finds Munchlax, the Herbalist will appear to take it back to her store, and she will offer the hero ten more Poké Snacks for his trouble.

A girl's Bonsly can be found inside the [[S.S. Libra]] after it appears in the desert. This Bonsly is apparently a Pokémon that Cipher forgot to take to [[Cipher Key Lair]]. After saving Bonsly and taking it to the girl in [[Pyrite Town]], she'll allow the hero to play a special [[Battle Bingo#Bonsly_Card|bingo card]] at [[Realgam Tower]], which features Bonsly as a usable Pokémon.

These Pokémon are not catchable, but they have special roles in the game. The Herbalist's Munchlax will often appear at a Poké Spot and make the player receive a false alarm that a wild Pokémon has appeared to eat his [[Poké Snack]]s. When the player finds Munchlax, the Herbalist will appear to take it back to her store, and she will offer the player ten more Poké Snacks for his trouble.

A girl's Bonsly can be found inside the [[S.S. Libra]] after it appears in the desert. This Bonsly is apparently a Pokémon that Cipher forgot to take to [[Cipher Key Lair]]. After saving Bonsly and taking it to the girl in [[Pyrite Town]], she will allow the player to use a special [[Battle Bingo#Bonsly Card|bingo card]] at [[Realgam Tower]], which features Bonsly as a playable Pokémon.

Players can transfer snagged Pokémon from Pokémon XD to any of the portable [[Generation III]] games: [[Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Versions|Ruby, Sapphire]], [[Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions|FireRed, LeafGreen]] and {{v|Emerald}}. This transference functions identically to the [[trade|trading]] function in the [[core series]] games, but can only happen in [[Phenac City]].
  +
* In order to do the above, one needs to have completed the sidequest to unlock trading with Hoenn-based games in FireRed and LeafGreen.
  +
* Through exploitation of differences in linkup requirements, players can send Pokémon from XD to one of the handheld Hoenn games without beating the Elite Four, trading first to a game that has done so, trading from that to {{g|Colosseum}}, and trading from Colosseum to the Hoenn game.

Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness (Japanese: ポケモンXD 旋風ダーク・ルギア Pokémon XD: Whirlwind of Darkness, Dark Lugia) is Genius Sonority's second and final Pokémon game for the Nintendo GameCube as well as the second RPG in the Pokémon series for a home console. The game features a Battle Mode akin to that of its predecessor, as well as a Story Mode featuring a brand new plot set in the Orre region.

Plot

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

The game once again takes place in the Orre region, about five years after the events of Colosseum. In their second attempt at world domination, the criminal organization Cipher has created a Shadow Lugia, codenamed XD001, claimed to be immune to purification. A young Trainer, Michael, aims to defeat Cipher and prevent their plans.

The game opens with a shot of the S.S. Libra cruising through the sea, when suddenly some helicopters appear overhead with Shadow Lugia, which picks up the ship. The sailors fall out and watch in awe as it flies away, carrying the ship with it.

The protagonist, Michael, finds himself using a Salamence to battle a Metagross. No matter what the outcome is, when the battle is over the player will then find himself in the Pokémon HQ Lab, where it is revealed that the battle was merely a simulation. Michael then speaks with Professor Krane and Lily. Prof. Krane comments on Michael's battle skills, and Lily remembers that she hasn't seen Jovi, Michael's younger sister, since lunch.

Lily asks Michael to look for her. Michael finds a P★DA that Professor Krane left him in his room and gets an e-mail telling him to ask Adon, who was playing hide-and-seek with Jovi. Adon tells Michael to look in Dr. Kaminko's house. After watching a report about the missing cargo ship that was carrying loads of Pokémon (the S.S. Libra), Michael goes to Kaminko's house, where he battles by Chobin, who mistakes him for a burglar. After fending him off, Jovi shows up and Michael takes Jovi home.

Back at the HQ Lab, Michael talks to Prof. Krane and obtains the Snag Machine, a machine that allows its owner to snag Shadow Pokémon from other Trainers. To complement the machine, Aidan adds a Shadow Monitor to the P★DA. When Professor Krane goes to ready the battle simulator for a test, some men come in and kidnap Professor Krane. Michael follows them outside and battles the leader, Naps, who is using a Shadow Teddiursa, which Michael snags. However, Prof. Krane is taken away by his captors. Aidan mentions that Prof. Krane is crucial to the Purification Chamber project (a device that allows Shadow Pokémon to be purified), and that there is nothing they can do without him. Lily then says they can complete it themselves, and sends Michael to Gateon Port to retrieve a crucial part, with Jovi tagging along.

At Gateon Port, Jovi runs into Zook, who sends out his Shadow Zangoose in anger. Before he can do anything else, however, a mysterious wealthy man, Mr. Verich, steps in and has one of his bodyguards defeat Zook. Michael and Jovi retrieve the machine part from the mechanic Perr (snagging a few Shadow Pokémon on the way) and return to the HQ Lab.

Lily mentions that there is a place in Agate Village that can purify Shadow Pokémon, and Michael heads there. While there, he meets Eagun, the elder of Agate Village, who shows Michael the Relic Stone, a stone that has the power to purify Shadow Pokémon. Eagun allows Michael to purify one Pokémon at the Stone, and Michael returns to the HQ Lab.

Michael then travels to the Cipher Lab to rescue Prof. Krane, and successfully does so while defeating Cipher Admin Lovrina. While at the lab, he finds a Data ROM, and heads to Pyrite Town to speak with Secc and Nett at ONBS, to see if they can decode it. After receiving some tips from Duking about Pokespots, Michael receives a text from Nett saying to come back to Pyrite Town. Cipher has taken over ONBS, and it's up to Michael to defeat them on his way up to see Nett.

Michael's next stop is Phenac City. After his arrival, he finds that the city has been taken over by Cipher. After defeating the Cipher Peons, he heads into the Phenac Stadium and defeats Cipher Admin Snattle, freeing Phenac City.

Later, Michael is tipped off by Phenac's mayor about Cipher sticking around a strange building, and is also requested by a young girl in Pyrite Town to go save her Pokémon aboard the S.S. Libra; but both the strange building and the S.S. Libra are inaccessible due to the heavy sands that Michael's scooter can't pass. After another misunderstanding with Chobin, Michael is able to get advanced wheels that can take him through the heavy sands. Although Michael can find the specific creature he was requested to find, it flees when startled by the PDA, and all the other Pokémon supposedly aboard the ship have also disappeared. After encountering and dueling some more Cipher members, Team Snagem goons ambush Michael; by using Sleep Powder, they knock him out and steal his Snag Machine from him.

Michael then re-encounters Zook from Gateon Port at the Cipher Key Lair, the strange building Justy told him about, but he cannot even attempt to snag his Shadow Zangoose. Also, two bulky guards make the key lair inaccessible to Michael, leaving him trapped out.

Fortunately, Secc at ONBS directs Michael to Hordel at the Outskirt Stand; he directs Michael to the Snagem Hideout. After battling through the swarm of Snagem members, Michael defeats the leader Gonzap and reclaims his Snag Machine; but when they both realize that they are both trying to defeat Cipher, Gonzap agrees to help Michael through the guards. The same Gloom that put Michael to sleep puts the two bulky guards to sleep, letting Michael enter the Cipher Key Lair; after intensely battling through the many Shadow-enabled peons in it, and then after shutting down the factory thus ceasing the production of all Shadow Pokémon, Michael confronts and battles the third Cipher AdminGorigan.

After defeating the large, ape-like man, Mr. Verich appears on video and reveals that he is actually Greevil, the true master of Cipher, and that he is hiding on Citadark Island, but the island is in a very stormy area of sea and almost always has terrible weather, making it almost impossible to breach. With the help of Makan, Michael—after getting the Master Ball from Professor Krane—enables the Robo Kyogre, and journeys to Cipher's last stronghold.

There, he battles through Lovrina, Snattle and Gorigan a second time and an entire horde of Pokémon, and even battles Ardos and Eldes, who are two more Cipher Admins and Greevil's bodyguards. After going through everyone, Michael battles Greevil after snagging or defeating Shadow Lugia. He defeats him, and it is then revealed that Ardos and Eldes are his sons. Ardos wishes to blow up Citadark Island, sacrificing Michael and all the Cipher members and Pokémon on the island so Cipher can live on, but he is ultimately spurned by Eldes, who convinces Greevil that Cipher is finished after being defeated a second time. Ardos storms off, and Eldes and Greevil decide to surrender to the police, thus ensuring Orre's safety.

Michael can complete the Orre Colosseum after this. The five Cipher Admins appear in competitions there, along with Gonzap and his Team Snagem followers as well as Chobin piloting Robo Groudon. Notably, when challenged, Ardos hints of his plans to resurrect Cipher, and upon being defeated, he labels Michael as Cipher's biggest threat.

Gameplay

Much like Colosseum, Pokémon XD features a similar 3D gameplay to the core series of Pokémon games. Mechanics in Pokémon battles are directly adapted. Also, similar to its predecessor, Pokémon XD features mostly Double Battles instead of Single Battles. Unlike in Colosseum however, wild Pokémon can be found, albeit only in specific places called Poké Spots.

Changes from Pokémon Colosseum

Some changes have been made to the region and gameplay from Pokémon Colosseum:

  • The main character, Wes, is replaced by Michael. Michael's starter Pokemon is a L10 Eevee instead of a L25 Espeon and L26 Umbreon.
  • Gameplay is less challenging until the post-game in Story Mode.
  • PCs now have 8 Boxes, and access to the Purify Chamber. The Save function has been removed from PCs, replaced with a Save option in the menu.
  • Hyper Mode is renamed Reverse Mode.
  • Shadow Pokémon can't be put in the Day Care.
  • Shadow Pokémon now learn exclusive Moves via purification.
  • Shadow Rush's power has dropped to 50 and no longer causes recoil damage.
  • Multiple Shadow moves have been added alongside Shadow Rush.
  • Shadow Moves are now super effective against non-Shadow Pokemon but not very effective against Shadow Pokémon.
  • There is now a '+' next to an opponent's Shadow Pokemon's level.
  • Battle Mode has been dropped, though the Orre Colosseum has been incorporated into the post-game Story Mode.
  • Calling a non-Shadow Pokemon raises its accuracy if it's not asleep.
  • The Orre Region map got a makeover, and is now viewed from a 3D rather than a top-down look.
  • Pyrite Cave, The Under and Phenac Stadium are inaccessible.
  • Pyrite Building has been turned into ONBS.
  • A Purify Chamber has been added.
  • Wild Pokemon, in-game trades, a Move Relearner, Battle Bingo and Battle Sims have been added.
  • Strategy Memo is automatically updated.
  • In Mt. Battle, the player is no longer asked if the player wants to advance to the next zone.
  • Areas 1-3 of Mt. Battle are available from the start.
  • Mt. Battle trainer levels now go up to Level 70 and trainers now use Legendary Pokémon.
  • TMs 07 (Hail), 46 (Thief) and 37 (Sandstorm) are gone.
  • The books in the basement of the Phenac Pokémon Center are now described as a Hoenn/Kanto region research.
  • Time Flutes are gone.
  • Poké Balls can now be bought at most Poké Marts.
  • There are now stricter conditions for trading with the GBA games.

Characters

Michael, as he appears in Pokémon XD
Main article: XD characters

The protagonist of Pokémon XD is a young boy named Michael, Trainer of an Eevee. Michael lives with his mother, Lily, and his younger sister Jovi. Professor Krane, a scientist researching Pokémon purification and a family friend, often assists him. A handful of other characters also appear, some returning from Colosseum and some new.

The crime organization Cipher returns in the game with renewed plans. The syndicate includes five new admins: Lovrina, Snattle, Gorigan, Ardos and Eldes hired by the team's boss. Miror B. also appears in the game with new scopes in mind.

Locations

Main article: :Category:XD locations

The game's setting is in the Orre region, which has been altered after the five years that have passed. More wild Pokémon have started appearing, but Orre's land is still much less inhabited than other regions. Pokémon XD features locations not present in Colosseum, as well as landmarks such as Mt. Battle returning.

Generation IV

These Pokémon are not catchable, but they have special roles in the game. The Herbalist's Munchlax will often appear at a Poké Spot and make the player receive a false alarm that a wild Pokémon has appeared to eat his Poké Snacks. When the player finds Munchlax, the Herbalist will appear to take it back to her store, and she will offer the player ten more Poké Snacks for his trouble.

A girl's Bonsly can be found inside the S.S. Libra after it appears in the desert. This Bonsly is apparently a Pokémon that Cipher forgot to take to Cipher Key Lair. After saving Bonsly and taking it to the girl in Pyrite Town, she will allow the player to use a special bingo card at Realgam Tower, which features Bonsly as a playable Pokémon.

Connectivity

Players can transfer snagged Pokémon from Pokémon XD to any of the portable Generation III games: Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed, LeafGreen and Emerald Version. This transference functions identically to the trading function in the core series games, but can only happen in Phenac City.

  • In order to do the above, one needs to have completed the sidequest to unlock trading with Hoenn-based games in FireRed and LeafGreen.
  • Through exploitation of differences in linkup requirements, players can send Pokémon from XD to one of the handheld Hoenn games without beating the Elite Four, trading first to a game that has done so, trading from that to Pokémon Colosseum, and trading from Colosseum to the Hoenn game.
