Well, I once got second prize, but never the Master Ball.

No one knows. According to Bulbapedia, he's traveling, but from the wording they use in the games it makes it sound like he is dead. If somebody can tell me where do they say he's still alive, I will appreciate that.

EDIT: I forgot that in his fight with Janine he talks about him in the present tense, which means that at least he is alive.

I've got a question regarding the Poke Transporter and Bank. I'm currently mass transporting a living dex out of an old, unused Black version, but it's tiresome to keep moving all the Mons to Box 1 in-game. I'm up to the sinnoh Mons at this point, but I'm wondering if there's an easier way. This is my question: when transporting from Gen V to Bank, do you need to use Box 1 for the transport or will the Poke Transporter lock onto the first box with Mons in it for transport? Thanks in advance.

one things always bugged me on the game (heartgold/soulsilver) when the old man congratulates you or whatever for having the silver wing when you go to get Lugia, there's a couple of items out of reach and a ladder, and ive never seemed to find my way around to get down that ladder for those items so really appreciate if someone knows?

Can you show me an screenshot? Because as far as I know you can get anything by going through the other entrances.

My Gengar is faster than my Butterfree. Whenever I encountered Raikou with my Butterfree I'm always able to attempt sleep powder. But when I encountered Raikou with Gengar it always fleed before I was able to use mean look. Does fleeing have increased priority against Pokémon that are traded or something?

No, there are no penalties for such a thing. Only obedience when it comes to traded Mons. In general, speed determines everything, from turn order to fleeing, so the fact that Gengar is faster than Butterfree but is unable to get a Mean Look fired off in time is strange, as Mean Look isn't a reduced priority move, either. Not sure what to say. It might just be really bad luck, as the math doesn't quite add up otherwise.

Sorry @Mirandagurl for not answering faster but here's how you get to those items:
First you enter through the northwest island, and then you follow this route:

Here they are:

Helix Fossil (Omanyte): The Underground (DPPt) or smashing rocks in the Ruins of Alph (HGSS).
Dome Fossil (Kabuto): Same as with the Helix Fossil.
Old Amber (Aerodactyl): Same as with the Helix Fossil.
Root Fossil (Lileep): The Underground (DPPt) or smashing rocks in the Cliff Cave (SoulSilver).
Claw Fossil (Anorith): The Underground (DPPt) or smashing rocks in the Cliff Cave (HeartGold).
Skull Fossil (Cranidos): The Underground (Diamond and Platinum*).
Armor Fossil (Shieldon): The Underground (Pearl and Platinum*)

*What fossil you can get in Platinum depends on the last number of your Trainer ID. If it's an odd number you can find Skull Fossils. And if it's an even number you can find Armor Fossils.
