Added a little bit about what else can be found at the station. Maki 06:23, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
Figured I'd mention here that the TV station's interior can't be accessed until after you get the Coal Badge and defeat the Galactic Grunts to the north of the town. Recalcitrancy 22:00, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
I've been told that the original red Gyarados report from Diamond and Pearl is retained in Platinum, though it is no longer part of the beginning of the game. I recently got Platinum and have been keeping an eye on the TV shows in hopes of seeing the report; I theorized that it would be activated by a certain event in the plot, so I constantly watched TV each time I obtained a badge or defeated Team Galactic. Today, after winning against Saturn in Lake Valor, I observed the news and was positively surprised to find the text I remembered from Diamond and Pearl. But I quickly came to realize that the subject of the report was the "Mysterious Flying Pokémon", rather than the red Gyarados. The fact that the Pokémon was said to drift in the sky (without causing destruction by merely fluttering its wings) suggested it was Ho-oh, although Lugia can't be ruled out altogether, either.
I am curious to know if anyone has run into a separate report that better fits Lugia's description. Also, does anyone happen to remember at what point in the game they watched the red Gyarados report, and any of the other two, for that matter? I am trying to determine if their broadcast is indeed event-dependent, as opposed to being randomly chosen according to what day it is. It seems like too big a coincidence for the show to be broadcast right after an important event like the detonation of the Galactic Bomb, but I can't be certain based on my experience alone. --Unown Lord 15:38, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
- Your "(without causing destruction by merely fluttering its wings)" seems to implicate Lugia much more than Ho-Oh. It's also possible that the report just happens to become available after the Galactic Bomb (and not actually related to it otherwise).—Ｌｏｖｅはドコ？ (talk • contribs) 20:52, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
- How so? Lugia refrains from flying because its wings pack a devastating power. I deduced from the fact that the Pokémon was described as drifting in the sky, without anything out of the ordinary about it aside from being a rare sight, that it was Ho-oh. The text in the parentheses wasn't actually in the report. --Unown Lord 00:58, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
- Well, today I saw a report about the silver colored Pokémon that sleeps at the bottom of the sea. Lugia, of course —Meet me at Kamelot (Or just talk to me) 22:52, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
- I've seen a report called "The Pokémon with Shining Feathers" at Amity Square, which also seemed like it meant Ho-Oh. Could the "Mysterious Flying Pokémon" be Rayquaza, perhaps? In any case, these reports are not event-dependent.ChaudCo 16:25, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
