What are your favourite move/ability/emera combinations? What makes them so great?
>>
>>25031091
Haven't played SMD yet, but I'll try:

>move
Room-cleaning moves, specially the ones that ups stats like Ominous Wind and Silver Wind.

>abilitiy
Steadfast, by making Cringe status and X-Eye Seeds free Quick Seeds. Too bad Movement Speed it was nerfed to only affect the movement instead of turns.

Aura Sphere is crazy good. HP-draining moves can also be great because of how much health enemies have in SMD.

Just finished what I assume is the last of the story in Super and now just have to find treasures.

Was pretty good, I liked how they subverted the usual PMD ending. Didn't like the game nearly as much as Sky but it's definitely better mechanically.

>>25031560
Nope. You've gotta go self-rescue.

Daily reminder that you're not allowed to have nice things, and if you're wondering if there's something that might make the game easier, it doesn't work that way and you can go fuck yourself.

Is running stat-boosting moves a good idea here? Seems like they just take up a moveslot and are questionably useful at best. Admittedly, they're very useful for boss fights if you can get a Petrify Orb off, but otherwise what use are they?

Worse, are status-inducing moves useful besides Confusion inducers, just because of how hard they fuck the opponent?

>>25031626
Confusion, sleep, and petrification are all useful, but you're better off inflicting them with orbs and wands.

I'm on the fence about stat-boosters. Your allies never seem to use them at the right time, so you really have to take control and use it for them for make the most of them.

>>25031560
Don't forget progress devices. You ought to have at least one. No shame in looking up how many floors a story dungeon has and using it right before the boss.

Point. Attract has proven mostly useless anyway, so I feel no shame in taking it off and replacing it. I thought it'd be useful to tie up bosses and troublesome Pokemon. I was wrong.

On the other hand, Coil and Growth have proven incredibly useful in turn on Servine - the one I use most - so I'm kinda on the fence too. It's nice setting up just one boost at the beginning of a floor and just murdering everything as you pass with Leaf Blade. Speaking of which, Leaf Blade/Super Critical/Focus Looplet makes Snivy into a fucking crit machine. It's a pity crits don't bypass defense boosts like in the main series.

Is there an easy way to connect with Cofagrigus? I really want some of those treasures, especially the Excavation Looplet and the enhanced Sp. Atk Looplet. I've managed to connect with Kangaskhan, does that help?

This game is pretty hard.
What level do you have to be to beat very hard and super hard dungeons? They kick my starter's ass. I haven't even rescued the partner yet. Am I supposed to only be level 30 for that Xatu shit? Fire starters get walled hard by Houndoom.
For the most part I've been cheesing dungeons with items or those super high level Pokémon. Does the starter and partner also automatically level up when not in use?

OK /vp/. I've spent literal hours trying to come up with a legit way to fight this crap. I have to know. Tell me, please, so I can finally move on.

Is the real way to beat Reshiram and Zekrom just throwing yourselves at them with dozens of Reviver Seeds and hoping you get lucky?
>>
>>25031991
I was around level 25-30 when I got my partner back. Try using some gold bars to get roids and if you can learn a move that houndoom isn't immune to.
You could also try taking hoopa with you, but he's kinda unreliable.

>Does the starter and partner also automatically level up when not in use?
Not that I know of.
>>
>>25032008
I can guarantee it's not that, at least - I got the Water Looplet as soon as it became available by throwing three overleveled Dragon-types at it, and there is demonstrably not a Cofagrigus link. Oh well, I'll just have to keep checking.
>>
>spawn on first floor in the back of a monster house

>>25032091
Anon, this is why you always pack Petrify Orbs and Stayaway Wands. Did you learn nothing about dungeoneering from Watchog?
>>
Are Locked Doors only a mission thing in Super?

I remember the older games you had to bring keys yourself.
>>
>>25032108
Yes.
>>
Is it just me or is the Connection Orb mostly fucking useless? It's a hassle to navigate and I pretty much just ignore everything except the new postings.
>>
>>25032063
I think only your starter is allowed in the Xatu dungeon. I might have to grind for items then. And if that's the case with leveling that's kinda shit. I know for sure other Pokémon automatically level. I just don't know exactly by how much and how fast.
>>
>>25032213
Yes, technically only your starter is allowed.

HOWEVER. Hoopa can effectively be "smuggled" in by picking up his bottle and using it. He's unreliable as shit, but if you're constantly dying anyway it certainly can't make it much worse.
>>
>>25032213
You take hoopa with you as an item and he isn't considered part of your team, but I've never tried taking him with me to that dungeon while it was limited so I don't know if you actually can or not.

>I know for sure other Pokémon automatically level.
Really? I've never noticed that.
>>
>>25032227
By the way is that seriously the only way if using Hoopa? You never get to recruit or control it? Just have it tag along as a shitty guest that summons shit and is occasionally not useless?
>>
>>25032243
I've tested it, and it's common knowledge. Yes, you can.

>>25032245
Yep. It's kind of a pain. Hoopa even lampshades it when you first interact with it and pick up the bottle. You even have to talk to it to get it to summon shit, and that shit may or may not decide to attack you instead of the rest of the dungeon. Oh, and Hoopa leaves on the next floor. Why? Because fuck you, that's why.
>>
>>25032243
Yeah. I only used Salamence once before beating the final boss and I came back with it at level 51. I also noticed <20 Pokémon being level 20 or above. I could just be remembering their previous levels wrong. I know for sure Snorlax was less than level 20 but showed up as level 22.
>>
>>25031187
Sky and Super are both tied in terms of awesome.
>>
>>25032276
Hoopa's about as helpful as a pair of Whiff Specs. You're better off just bringing a ton of wands and spamming them
>>
>>25032280
I almost never bring anyone aside from my starters into dungeons so I never noticed.
He's lv57 for me and I'm pretty sure I've only ever used him two or three times at most.
>>
>>25032316
Did you evolve your starters? I honestly can't fathom how to beat some of the later dungeons without item spam. I might as well grind with an army of motivated Unown.
>>
>>25032368
Evolving your starters doesn't actually grant any stat boosts. It's purely cosmetic. Unfortunate, I know. Just do what everyone else does and roid up.
>>
>>25032368
Nope, evolving doesn't boost stats in super, and my starter is a riolu.
When I evolved him in sky it only caused me problems so I didn't bother this time around.
Just spend your gold on vitamins and you'll probably be fine.
>>
>>25032385
With Cofagrigus food or the regular drugs? I haven't used stat boosting item before. I also don't have a water bracelet thing yet either.

And I'm aware of that. The fully evolved starters usually get better moves but I'm attached to the cute scarves so I don't want to do it. Evolved starters lose the scarf right?
>>
>>25032430
Cofagrigus drugs, and why don't you have the water looplet?

Actually, where are you in the game? Have you even left Serene Village yet?
>>
>>25032430
but the evolved starters aren't as cute
>>
>>25032430
You loose the scarfs eventually anyway.
You're better off with the regular drugs, they're cheaper and I think the food only increases by one at random.
>>
>>25032439
I barely just beat the Kirby crossover and didn't bother saving my partner yet. I was cleaning up a couple of requests.

>>25032442
Fuck me. I liked that the starters were distinguished with a scarf. The thing I hated about Rescue Team was that the starter completely loses their personality after beating the game.

>>25032418

Is it wrong that I still have Ember on Fennekin, rather than upgrading to Flamethrower? Between Heat Wave and Psybeam, I have all the Fire-type and/or long range coverage I need, and Ember works perfectly well as a semi-long-range Fire-type backup attack.

Also, why must Hawlucha be so expensive? I finally got Heat Wave for 10000, and now I need to come up with 8000 more for Shock Wave.
>>
>>25032730
I don't understand why you'd stick with ember.
Flamethrower works just fine at closer ranges too and is more powerful.

I think Ember is sick and I had Flamethrower still as well. I mean, you can do whatever the fuck you want really as long as you have Heat Wave.

I downloaded NTR 3.2 but doesn't work too.

>>
>>25032751
>more powerful
Not when you've been using it for most of the game it's not. It's got 6 less PP (which is damning in longer dungeons) and only a little more power. It's really astounding how much power shitty moves can get if they get upgraded enough.

>>25032764
True, I suppose, but I only have so many moveslots and I don't have the PP or Elixirs to just continually spam Heat Wave, especially since CoFAGGOTrigus won't connect and give me the goddamn Excavation Looplet, so I can't get enough gold bars to buy PP/Power/Accuracy drinks. And yes, I already used the Wonder Mail codes.

What's the point of the teammate availability mechanic? Couldn't they just NOT give you access to strong Pokemon like Salamence until the postgame?

>tfw both of the Pokemon I've roided up besides my starter and partner are on break so I can't tackle a hard dungeon until one comes back
>>
>>25032998
I don't know why they didn't at least make it go away entirely once you are higher level than that pokemon.
Some of the early optional missions are a pain in the ass if you don't have higher level mons, so I understand why they give you Salamence and so early.
>>
>>25032827
Did it work?
>>
>>25033012
Why not make those missions easier so you can tackle them without a level-50 nukemon?
>>
>>25033021
If I had to guess, maybe to teach you that you can choose any 3 mons for those types of missions and that taking your starters might not be the best idea?
I don't know, but it's one of the things that makes me sad about the connection orb.
>>
>>25033021
Because using a nukemon feels good. They didn't want to completely scare away children, so they use Pokemon like Salamence or Bisharp to compromise. It's also a good excuse to give people their favorites earlier than might be expected, even if it's only temporary. Hopefully next PMD they'll do a better job of balancing it though.

Is this supposed to happen? I'd almost think I was supposed to lose that fight, except right after that I met a Victini who joined my guild just by talking to me. Does this game just not give a shit about level scaling or what? Because now I'm rolling in overleveled monsters and Salamence can solo monster houses without breaking a sweat and it feels a little... off.
>>
>>25033175
Salamence and similarly high leveled mons take lots of breaks. Don't expect to reliably use him.
>>
>>25033175
No. The point of that is to teach people unfamiliar with roguelikes that will they need to use items in this game.
Salamence will go on break for days at a time if you use him, so it's not like you can just use him for everything and story missions will force you to use your starters.
>>
>>25033175
They attempted balancing that with Pokemon going on breaks. You'll probably need that Salamence for some of the harder missions if you don't plan on item spamming. Only story missions are balanced around your level scaling. Everything else is the Wild fucking West.

On the subject of moves, can I just say that giving my partner Aromatherapy was literally the best decision of my life
>>
>>25034350
I think I rarely use healing seeds and just tough it out on the floor usually.

Also more recently I feel like my dungeons have been "Stack reviver seeds and take names"

Is there an ideal number of seeds that adds equal challenge and fairness to these things? I like them for the life-lines but I also just end up with dungeons that take like 5 and don't put a dent in my supply because of gold bars.

What's a good final set for Braixen? (Not Delphox, because fuck that model and those animations, the fully evolved parts were the worst.) So far, I have Heat Wave/Ember/Psybeam/Round. Round's the odd one out, and I was thinking about replacing it with Shock Wave, especially since as a Grass-type I'm highly vulnerable to Flying-types and she needs Water-type coverage that's not Psybeam. Any advice on that? And yes, Ember over Flamethrower, because I've been using Ember the entire game and it's almost as strong as Flamethrower while having a shit-ton more PP, and Heat Wave/Psybeam cover range pretty well.

liking it though. i need lots and lots of art of this very specific player/partner combo
>>
>>25034687
Agreed. It's actually mechanically good too - Snivy does a good physical set, especially if you're willing to stick with Vine Whip for a while until you can get Leaf Blade, and works well at close range. Meanwhile, Fennekin can snipe with Psybeam and Ember, AND is special in comparison to your physical. Chespin works for the same reason, but using that particular combo just feels cheap.

Guys it might get a little heavy if I do it right. I don't know what I'm doing with this antagonist.

>>25034687
I just chose my favorite and second favorite starter and went. For some reason shortly after the thread exploded with people who went the same combo, and we all agreed that Fennekin is a ridiculously good choice for the overenthusiastic partner.
>>
>>25034721
>Guys it might get a little heavy if I do it right.
Just remember, anon. Look the hardest-hitting stories and you'll realize: emotional contrast brings power to those emotions. That is to say, the generally happier the tone is, the harder the sad parts will hit. It's an extremely useful tool for storytelling, and I hope that you'll pull it off properly.

How's your progress going? Consider maybe posting it in chapters rather than all at once like with the Mawile fic? I'm getting antsy waiting for this to be done.

He apologizes so fucking bad and asks you to his house like that.

>>25034687
Fennekin is particularly a common partner because he's the "new cute guy", the partner personality REALLY fits him, and he's also pretty good like >>25034708 said. Snivy is more of a personal favorite for me, he's not particularly amazing so the main is more up to you really.

On this combo however, afaik there's only like 5 active people here with it, we just like to autism together. :^)
>>
>>25034739
Yes, but I don't think it's going to be all happy-cheery to begin with. Like the entire point of the MC for the first two chapters is to be like "Mmm fuck I want to protect that smile so hard it's distracting" but the reader is definitely going to get peeks at how shit is going down elsewhere. It's all cutesy and funny until shit hits the fan down in Alabama and only you know about it. Then I'm going to try my hand at morality and ethics a bit once those two sides meet.

Yeah yeah, sometime tomorrow I'll be finished with the rough of chapter 1 and will be able to start the final. Still don't expect it too soon, but it'll still be well within January.
>>
>>25034786
A facade of happiness over a drearier reality is equally fine. Consider, for instance, Earthbound. You only get peeks at how fucked up everything is until the very end when you deal with it yourself, and aside from a few other moments throughout, the game mostly has a pretty goofy, cartoonish, happy-go-lucky atmosphere. Which makes the fight with Giygas that much more jarring, impactful, and memorable in the end. There's a lot riding on that fight. It's heavy, the weight of the world is in your hands. And it's SCARY, too. The visual effects in the giygas fight, and the music after the Devil's Machine breaks, are unlike anything else in the game. There's no part of Earthbound more remembered than that. And part of its brilliance is how DIFFERENT it is, in tone, to the rest of the game.

I'm not so much of a mastermind that I can recreate something like the Giygas fight in text yet, I'm making fanfiction for two threads on an imageboard. Technically what I meant by peeks besides actual foreshadowing are scene shifts. There's meant to be a change of perspective at the end of chapter 1 which vaguely gives you an idea of what kind of problems persist in this area that the partners are going to. However, I haven't technically gotten to that part yet and I'm wondering if it should really be there or not. It may not be needed considering that chapter 2 is meant to be cut in two halves in exactly such a fashion. If I do decide to hold on the scene shift then chapter 1 might not be much longer than 7,000 words.

It's certainly a very tricky issue, one that I'm not going to have much a problem with once the plot finally hits the actual characters like a cinder block.

>>
>>25037662
It's fun, but as it was the start of PMD, there were problems. You could only recruit 3 pokemon max, any more and you need to escape orb out.

You could have 3 more pokemon join the team in Friend Areas, but you could not ever ENTER a dungeon with 4 pokemon, unless the 4th was an escort.

Some pokemon are bullshit hard to find and recruit. I get Chansey's supposed to be rare, but EXEGGCUTE?

Smallest inventory holding space really hurts, you'll constantly be at the cap.

The rewards from missions are fucking trash. How about an escort to floor 88 of Purity Forest for a Torment TM? Or a rescue at floor 79 of Wish Cave for a Max Elixer?

Pokemon take so long to level up, also. Despite all these problems, it's still a fun game. The buried items in dungeons are generally pretty good, adding a little something into the game that is absent in SMD.
>>
>>25038741
>but you could not ever ENTER a dungeon with 4 pokemon
What? How would that happen?
>>
>>25038831
Alright lets say you're a Mudkip, and go out and add Torchic, Zigzagoon, and Oddish to your team.

You can add all 3 of those partners just find, but the second you try to enter a dungeon?

>"There are too many pokemon on the team. your team must be reduced by one member."

So, you can only enter a dungeon with up to 3 pokemon. You can RECRUIT a 4th pokemon in the dungeon, but that's the only way to get a 4th inside a dungeon, outside escort missions.


Escort missions existing are the only reason i got for why that 3 party member limit was imposed.
>>
>>25038864
Isn't that because of the star size thing? You need to use the right Pokémon, I guess it's trying to stop you from using a team full of legendaries or something
>>
>>25038870
Nope, the game straight up wont let you use Four Pokemon in a Dungeon, unless there's an Escort or you recruit one Mid-Dungeon. Size has nothing to do with it.
>>
>>25037763
>>25038095
>>25038741
Thanks for answering.
>>
>>25038870
No, the star size thing is different. The limit in Sky is 4 pokemon, OR a maximum of 6 Size stars. Meaning in that, if you took a Palkia and Articuno, that's it, that's your 6 size stars.

In Red/Blue it's 3 pokemon or 6 size stars.

If you havent played Blue, i'd still recommend it. You won't be recruiting everything, but it's worth going through.

With Close Combat and Focus Punch, Hitmonchan's not the best fighter. But the real MVM is Agility, which Hitmonchan learns at Level 6. With double/triple speed you can run from pretty much everything, granted that you don't step on any traps, run within enemy sniping range, or get sandwiched in a corridor.

The most notable moments I can recall were finding a Thief TM that I actually had to use to fight off a Haunter, a Primeape tossing me out of a sandwich, and accidentally Stayaway Wanding a Gyarados right on top of the stairs. The last floor was an amazing play though.

No idea on rain, but for sun I've used fire type with heat wave+ Cherrim+ lilligant. Cherrim is the sun setter, lilligant is cleric and attacker, and the fire type having heat wave (and generally one other fire move) boosted by sun AND it's Sp.Atk boosted by flower gift kills basically everything. You can set the rest of the move sets to coverage/cleric/status or whatever you want really.

Oh and make sure lilligant has chlorophyll, Lucha tokens and evolving petilil

Fennekin fits the partner role so well I can't even begin to imagine playing the game with any other Pokemon as the partner. I don't even want to evolve her even though I normally love Braixen. I didn't evolve my characters in the older games either though, I get too attached.

I just wish the game went on a little longer. I'm enjoying just going through dungeons in the postgame but Sky's plot content stretched out about 15 more hours than Super's.

>>25040900
>changing them to whatever song you like better

Explain.

I still feel like the easier recruitment is a double edged sword. On one hand, it takes a ton of frustration out of the game, but on the other, you 100% the game far quicker.
>>
>>25041021
>you 100% the game far quicker

You mean you 100% the game at all. I don't see the appeal in 100%ing the old games. Ludicrously tedious, and unlike the main series no way to carry your progress into future games

Meanwhile the connection orb just lets me get all my bros and rescue /vp/ with them. I like that system more
>>
Is excavation looplet worth it? It says that it lets you see the sparkles... but you can already see the sparkles. Does it just show it on the map like normal items?
>>
>>25041021
I feel like the previous method was kind of pointless awful padding to begin with. Never even wanted to 100% the Pokedex on the old ones, just clear all the dungeons.

But I'm not totally in love with the new system. I'm so sick of watching the whole CONNECTED animation. Everything in this game just goes kind of slowly, loading screens take way too long, I don't know if that's improved on N3DS or not.

I can see where you two are coming from. God knows recruiting everything in Blue is a pain in the ass.

I feel like my complaints about it comes down to the fact that the treasure hunt is basically the whole postgame, save for Connection Orb missions. I know it's great to actually be able to GET SMD's equivalent to Goggle Specs/Tight Belts, but it all feels a little too easily gotten.

One major problem for me is the fact that the level 5 dungeons have no reward, outside of being able to come here and say "Hey guys I beat Sacred Ruins!" Your only reward is being able to screencap that "dungeon complete" screen.

And then there's the fact that there are no random missions to begin with. Sure, a lot of the missions netted you fuckall in the older games, but then you'd get the great ones, the ones that net you things like Vitamins, Joy Seeds, and maybe even an escort that leads to two chests that could have a Golden Seed inside.

All this stuff just feels like it hurts the game in the long run

>>25041072
Took me 200 hours, and yeah, that's a lot, but i let the game sit for quite awhile at times. It's just that even with that much time, i've still gotten less playtime in this than RT and Sky. I'm not trying to shit on SMD, I really like the game, I'm just conflicted with how i feel about it i guess. There's no doubt it's better than Rescue Team, though.
>>

>Not sure what I'm doing wrong

>>
>>25041072

I'm 34 hours in and I've connected with 375.

But I pretty much only do expeditions when I can finish 3-to-5 missions at once.
>>
>>25041099
I also have left mine idle a bit, probably more like 70 hours if I'm honest, but whatever.
>>25041103
Well, I like to use the lower level pokemon too, and they can't go there. And I hate fainting, but also hate using items, and also hate spending money on items. I'm just a 'save everything' kind of person.
>>25041104
I do that when I can, but like I said, a lot of the time I like to use the weaker pokemon, and at this point, all the easier dungeons have no more connection opportunities.
>>
>>25041099
Yeah I agree with all of that. It's not the recruiting that's bad so much as the lack of random missions. Sky just did things better. Also made you get more into the role of a heroic exploration team, I feel like. In Sky you're tracking down criminals, in Super it's just "help me beat up this guy i don't like".

The dungeon mechanics work great though, best in the series yet. It just all needs to be transported into a game with better fundamentals.
>>
>>25041099
I think the biggest advantage that the connection orb had over the old recruiting system was that it made each recruit feel a little more personal. They each get one or two lines of dialogue, you get to see each recruit's relationships with other recruits, and so on. It made it feel more like you had actually befriended someone rather than just picked up some faceless nobody off the street and added them to your army

But finite missions really hurt the postgame, as does the lack of postgame story arcs. I really think the connection orb could have been put to better use in this regard, with mini story arcs told across a couple sequential recruiting missions

I would have liked IQ in the game, albeit in a less grindy method. Possibly spending all that leftover cash on skills, with something of a skill tree? I dunno, but grinding Gummis took awhile. The dungeons themselves were fine. The dungeons aren't as deep, but each floor is longer to compensate. Being able to rescue randoms off the internet would have also added some longevity, i never got to help others back when Sky came out, since my DS couldnt connect to the internet

It's pretty well done that both genders are extremely possible for this scenario (Boy or girl, we're not going tumblr here). You have the village troll, someone who essentially is annoying and just does whatever the fuck they want, hell, I'd almost vouche they were even more as a girl because they want to be understood or some shit.

Hell, I'm reminded a bit of Ellie from Up. Notice how she's adventurous all throughout her life but Carl essentially "matures" her through being her friend.

Also it doesn't make the class room feel one sided down to espurr and deerling.

Sorry for the late reply, but thanks to you I realized my PSMD romfs dump was incomplete and I spent some time trying to extracting it again. Sadly I'm not finished with it and I'm a bit tired now. I wanted to tell you the exact folder structure, but I can't now.
The game uses the standard 3DS sound format (BCSTM), you can easily convert (or download from http://smashcustommusic.com/gamelist) music in that format and mod the game to make it use the ones you want. BCSTM is also the file used by Home Menu themes, so you can also use the ones from http://3dsthem.es if you want. I put Spinda's Cafe music instead of GtI opening as a test. It's kind of funny.

Of course, you need either CFW or HANS to do this (the latter is a bit harder to do though, as it requires you repacking the whole romfs).
Right now I don't know what the music folder is in Super, but I'll make sure to let you know.
Check this if you want to know what to name your BCSTM files. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaaAXqy1XjbsWkTM3StjreaNsVbsg3m0r
Example: If you want to change the shop music, you rename your file to BGM_DUN_SHOP.bcstm and put it in the right folder.
I'll try to help you if you need it.

Ah, I thought you meant there was some kind of function in-game that let you change the music.

So it turns out Nuzleaf is the one turning everyone to stone and that he's working with Yvetal? Whoah. I actually didn't see that coming. Though it makes sense now that I look back at it. He happens to stumble across you in the wilderness and takes you to the village and encourages you to get stronger and break the rules and explore so he can eventually lure you to the spring. It makes sense now why he told you never to go anywhere, and why he visits you at the expedition society. He wanted to make sure you wouldn't stray away from him

You're expected to have to use lots of items.

Slight mistake on my part. It's a traveling Pokémon that appears after connecting with Slowbro.

Persian, Pichu and a bunch of others I'm assuming are Travel Pokemon too, right? Those just appear in random dungeons and not just mission ones, right?

Persian is a connection in Lively Town. Pichu requires you to connect to Togekiss.

Well, Persian keeps hanging out in Serene Village. I think I fucked up and didn't get them when they were offered. I should start a new game.

>>25045748
Right, so I only have the missions from Uxie and Zygarde. And a bunch of non-connected Pokemon What do?.

I put off Lillipup's locked door mission for a longgggggg time, and then I finally did it. Suddenly I was able to recruit a bunch of town mons in the various towns. I think it was ~40 mons. Let this be a lesson to you anons.

>>25045888
Well, I just have Zygarde and Uxie's missions available.

A large number of these are travelling pokemon.

Legendaries are often encountered in a dungeon with their pic next to it. In fact, Reshiram and Zekrom are in a place where you ONLY have to battle them.

The genies are all in one dungeon, but they are like Heatran and will run once you poke them.
