Before going, make sure to stock up on lots of Ultra Balls. Also be sure to have lots of Dusk Balls, which can be foundin Pastoria City”s Pokemon Mart. The reason is that you”ll soon be catching Dialga/Palkia. In addition, you might need (Super/Max) Repels if you don”t want to encounter wild Pokemon every few steps. You”ll also need a Pokemon that knows Rock Climb. Now fly over to Oreburgh City and head east, entering Mt. Coronet on Route 207.

Fight the Grunt and exit through the south.
Climbing to the Peak
Now you”re outside in a snowy environment. The goal now is to climb tothe top of Mt. Coronet. Go east, north, and climb the rocks. If you go east into the cave opening, you can go straight up the steps fora hidden Ultra Ball. Smash the rock at the bottom-left corner and pick up the hidden PP Up on the rock that”s revealed. Gooutside, head west, then south (not through the grassy area). Push the boulder out of your way and continue west. Smash the rock along the wayand pick up the hidden Max Potion. Head north and go into the cave opening. Back inside, go straight and climb the rocks. Battle theGalactic Grunt, smash the rock near him, and pick up the hidden Revive.

Go all the way north for a hidden Rare Candy on the single rock. Go south a bit and go down the steps. Check out the cave opening to battlesome Galactic Grunts and pick up a few hidden items, including a Rare Candy hidden in one of the rocks in the lowest level. You won”t beable to go into the cave opening blocked by the Galactic Grunt. After they leave later, however, you may go inside to pick up TM02 – Dragon Claw.After that, get out of this cave area.
From the outside, climb the rocks westward and head west. You”ll find a TinyMushroom hidden on a rock and a Big Mushroom on the northern-most level. You”ll soon see another cave opening, which you should enter. On the second rock, you”ll find another TinyMushroom.Keep going east and head up the steps. Battle the Galactic Grunt and pick up the hidden Max Potion behind her. If you go south as far as youcan, you”ll be able to pick up a hidden Stardust on a rock. Fight the Grunt and head west up the steps. As you go north from here, you”llbattle one last Grunt before finally reaching the peak of Mt. Coronet.
At the top, you”ll battle two Galactic Grunts before you get to thefinal challenge. Walking forward, you”ll find Commander Cyrus, Commander Mars, and Commander Jupiter all in one spot! Commander Cyrus willsummon Dialga (in Pokemon Diamond)/Palkia (in Pokemon Pearl). As the beast comes out, you”ll see some impressive animation sequences. After Cyrus is done talking,walk forward and Commander Mars will challenge you to a battle. Suddenly, Rival comes over and gets into battle stance with Commander Jupiter.A challenging double battle will ensue (challenging mainly because Rival”s Pokemon doesn”t seem to help much). After defeating the two of them,Rival will heal your Pokemon and you”ll observe Dialga/Palkia forming a galaxy as instructed by Cyrus. Luckily, the Legendary Trio will arrive to messup his plans. Furious, Cyrus will battle you one-on-one with some pretty powerful Pokemon. After defeating him, the Team Galactic will leave,and Professor Rowan and Dawn will come. Professor Rowan tells you to help Dialga/Palkia out and the way to do that is to capture it (or defeat it)!The time has come…
Before going for Dialga/Pearl, save your game! Also, note that you should NOT useyour Master Ball. This Pokemon is easier to capture than other legendaries in the game. Dialga/Palkia is at lv. 47 and it”s very strong.Dialga is a Steel/Dragon-type Pokemon and Palkia is a Water/Dragon-type Pokemon. Try to get its HP as low as possible and throw Ultra Balls and Dusk Balls at it (while listening to the wonderful background music). Once you have captured it, Professor Rowan will come over to praise you on your incredible feat. Afterwards, go all the way north to pick up either the Adamant Orb (Diamond) or Lustrous Orb (Pearl), which powers up Dialga and Palkia, respectively.
Now, you”ll be able to catch the Legendary Trio by re-visiting the three lakes. Be sure to have plenty of Dusk Balls, since theseare the best types of Balls to use on these legendaries.
Mesprit at Lake Verity
Surf to the south-west section to pick up TM38 – Fire Blast. Then, surf to the center of the lake and go into the cave. Inside, you”ll see Mesprit. Press “A” against it and you”ll see a picture of it,which will be logged in your PokeDex. Unfortunately, it”ll fly away immediately. Professor Rowan then comes running over to tell you touse the Marking Map on your Poketch to track Mesprit”s location. Like the Legendary Beasts of PokemonGold/Silver/Crystal, you”ll have to walk in the grassy areas where Mesprit is detected in hopes of encountering it. Note that if you encounterit, Mesprit will flee immediately after you make any move. So, if you want to capture it, you probably should prevent it from fleeing, usinga move such as Mean Look.
Azlef at Lake Valor
Surf to the south-east section to pick up TM25 – Thunder. Then,surf to the center of the lake and go into the cave. Unlike Mesprit, Azlef will actually battle you; in other words, you can capture it rightnow! However, be careful, since this Pokemon is quite strong (lv. 50 with high damaging moves) and harder to catch than Dialga/Palkia.
Uxie at Lake Acuity
If you haven”t done so already, surf to the north-east section to pick upTM14 – Blizzard. Once again, go into the cave at the center of the lake. Inside, you”ll be able to catch the lv. 50 Uxie.
After all of that, we shall continue through the game. You only have one more Gym and the Elite 4 to take care of before the end of this wonderfulgame (of course, there”s lots more stuff to do afterwards). Fly over to Pastoria City and go east, past the hotel. When you”re on Valor Lakefront, continue east past the part that was previously blocked by a fat guy, and you”ll arrive on Route 222.
There are tons of trainers to battle on Route 222, many of them optional. This is because there is a fork in the route. The northernfork has more trainers that you”ll be forced to battle with, while the southern fork has optional Fishermen. Take either, or both, since bothforks eventually combine. On the north side, you can get a whole bunch of Berries at the beginning. Other than battling trainers, you”llbe able to pick up a Honey, a hidden Ultra Ball, and a Carbos (very east side of the northern fork after cutting a tree).Also, talk to the person facing south for TM56 – Fling. At the end of the south side, smash the rock and go onto the raised area to pick up a hidden Honey. If you surf east a little and get back on land, you can pick up a hidden Big Mushroom.
