Trophy Garden

Discussion in 'Pokémon Games Discussion' started by fluffymormegil, Apr 4, 2008.

  1. Am I missing something about how the Trophy Garden in Diamond/Pearl works? Mr Backlot says there are Porygon in his garden, but I can't seem to actually meet any.
  2. Its apretty rare appearance rate :S I kinda gave up on it, I just trade on wifi instead.
  3. You also have to catch the pokemon the same day. If he says there are Porygon in the Garden you have to comb around, because it will be replaced by a different pokemon the next day.

    On my game, if the guy has said that the pokemon is in the garden, say Eevee, it stays in the garden. Even when I go back the next day and get told another pokemon is there, I can still catch Eevee. They just appear very rarely. The same happens for all the garden pokemon.

    Hope that doesn't make my game weird...
  5. Do you talk to Mr. Backlot every day? If you don't, maybe thats why you can catch the Same pokemon for more than one day.

    I used to speak to him every day. But now all the pokemon are in the garden, so I don't speak to him at all anymore. I just went on to check that I wasn't mistaken... I've seen a Porygon and an Eevee so far...
  7. Fluffy, you are probably just plain unlucky. I always see the pokemon Mr. Backlot says, even if I have to stay a while to see them.

    SilverMagpie:I have no clue about your issue. Sorry.

    My game must just be evil
  10. Oh, that is supposed to happen. It has on both my Japanese and American versions, everytime I look hard enough. Quite simply, I believe it is a "second chance" thing, allowing you to catch a Pokemon you missed the day before, but at a much lower encounter rate. And yeah, they have low encounter rates to begin with. Also, both the new Pokemon for the day and the previous day's Pokemon will appear (and again, the previous day Pokemon being rarer). Really, all it takes is time and patience, and you will find the Pokemon Mr. Backlot had his butler put in his garden.

    Lol, I'm glad my game isn't messed up. I must admit I worried a little that it was defective or something. I must just be quite lucky when it comes to seeing the rare garden pokemon. I wish I was that lucky in the great marsh... or with the swarms. Swarms are evil
