I have been borrowing Pokemon Diamond from my store (Gamestop) for the past month and bought Platinum this past Sunday. I traded all my Diamond over to my Platinum yesterday so I had a couple of questions. I had a male Chimchar and started Platinum with a female Chimchar., so now I will be able to breed Chimchars when I get to that stage in the game.
My question is that I really want a Bulbasaur to play in Platinum, however I cannot search the GTS for one because I havent seen it on my Platinum yet. Is there any other way for me to obtain one? If anyone on these forums has a Bulba and I fight them, will that let me search for them on the GTS or do I actually have to own one?
Also, when I start breeding lvl 1 Chimchars... lets say I put a lvl 1 female Chimchar up and I want a lvl under 10 female Bulbasaur... how will I know that the Bulbasaur I get is legit like mine? Do the trades happen instantly or do I get to click ok on my end first?
If anyone out there can give me a quick run through of how the trade happens I would be greatly appreciative. Also if anyone can help me out with a Bulbasaur trade via WiFi or a donation that would make my week. I know its cheap to ask for a handout, but I would really like to play Platinum with a Bulbasaur starter.
