\ Intro [intro] /
/ \

As the title suggests, this is a guide on how to clone pokemon in the Diamond
and Pearl versions for the DS. You may use this guide to clone any pokemon you
want from Bidoof to Dialga. There are some risks involved, but if you read this
guide and follow my instructions as much as possible. If you have any questions
or concerns, please read the FAQ before e-mailing me.

\ Pre-requisites you must complete before you can clone [prerq] /

Below is a list of what you will need to perform this glitch
- At least two pokemon in your party
- At least one gym badge to access the Global Trading Station (Henceforth
referred to as the GTS)
- Some way to get online with your DS (If it's wireless in your house, or you
are at a hotspot. Just as long as you can connect to Wi-Fi)

That's all you need! Even more good news is that it is an extremely easy gym
considering it is a rock-type gym and there are wild machop in the area. Rock
type is weak to fighting type if you did not know, so the machop's will dominate
the gym. If you chose Turtwig or Piplup as your starter, that makes things even
easier since rock is also weak to grass and water. Wow, this is so much easier
compared to the Pewter gym in the Red/Blue/Yellow generation.

I also highly suggest you have fly if you are later in the game. Simply because
if you can't get to Jubilife City, you can't access the GTS, so you can't clone.
You get fly in Veilstone City which isn't too far in the game, so if you don't
have fly yet, don't worry about it, you will get it soon.

\ How to Clone (Method 1/Hardest Method) [htcl1] /
/ \

NOTE: I do not recommend trying to clone legendaries or heavily sought after
pokemon. There is a chance you will lose it. Please make sure you are
willing to lose the pokemon you are trying to clone. It is risky.

Yay! The part you all want to know, how to actually clone the pokemon.

To start off with, you'll need to go to Jubilife City and enter the GTS. If the
pokemon you want to clone is not in your party, fear not, you can deposit a
pokemon into the GTS from your box. I do recommend having the pokemon in your
party though, so for the rest of the guide I will assume it is in your party.
There is a PC system in the GTS building next to the counter, take out the
pokemon you want to clone, and make sure there is at least one empty space or
more in your party, since you will need it when you have finished cloning. (You
don't really need the empty space since when you withdraw a pokemon from the
GTS and there are no spaces in your party, the pokemon goes into your PC
instead. I just suggest the space because you'll want both the clone and
original pokemon in your party when you're done so you can confirm that the
glitch worked.)

Now enter the GTS (I know you're sick of seeing those three letters) and
talk to the woman at the counter to go online. After connecting to Wi-Fi is done
loading deposit the you wish to clone. Please look at the prevention [prevt]
section of the guide to see what pokemon you should ask for to lower the risk of
losing yours.

After you deposit your pokemon, but before the animation starts you will see a
little second hand that "ticks" around in a clock-like manner. For the sake of
argument we will call each time the second hand moves a "second" and each full
circle the hand makes a "minute". Do not actually think I am talking about
actual minutes and seconds. There are 8 seconds to a minute, and ON AVERAGE
it takes seven minutes to upload your pokemon to the database. The time it takes
to upload the pokemon varies with how well your connection is, and how close
your DS is to your wireless router.

Now, place down your DS on a hard surface and do not move it. I chose a hard
surface because it is harder to accidentally move the system as opposed to just
holding it in your hands, which do move. Now count how many "minutes" and
"seconds" it takes to upload the pokemon. Remember this number as it is an
extremely important step in this process, write it down if you must. Without
moving the DS, take your pokemon back. You did nothing so far to clone except
finding out how long it takes to upload the pokemon to the internet.

Still without moving the DS, upload your pokemon again. What you are trying to
do is to turn off your DS one second (according to the icon on the bottom right,
not one second according to your clock) before the uploading is complete. If you
turn the game off it too early or too late it won't work. Remember, do not move
the DS until you have a successful clone.

Now turn on your game again and a screen will come up telling you that the game
is corrupt. Don't worry this is a part of the cloning process and always
happens. Nothing bad will happen to your game from this. D/P

If you're going to copy an FAQ, you should say where you copied it from. Thanks for posting it though.
