  3. When I realized that there are no move tutors or relearners in the game, I was really disappointed. That seems like a big oversight and may extensively limit your potential team. Still an interesting game, but it makes me not want to play it.

    • Hey there Spoop, No it’s not completed and most of DS rom hacks like this one are either abandoned or still in beta.

  4. For anyone that wants to use cheats for this game, use the Spanish version of Heartgold’s AR codes. Most of the cheats work for me, including the pokemon encounter. (I managed to cheat in a lapras, and I would assume it would work for most of them in the base game.).

  5. Why cant i advance to route 406? I am stuck at the marshland area. I did not encounter diamond, however i am not sure if she is even there in the nds version.

    • Yeah I’m having the same issue. I know this is a year later but not sure if anyone did figure out this issue. I tried resetting it, making new save files and someone said something about not going inside the houses in Pantem Town and going straight to the swamp on Route 406. I’m just about to give up and play another ROM but I really like this one so far. But yea like I said I havent found anyother clues on how to fix this but if anyone knows by now then the answer is apreciated!

  6. for this to work you’ll need “pokemon edicion oro heartgold” (spanish version of heartgold) but there’s no place i can find it. Someone who knows a place where i can?
