If you can beat them I think yes, the leaders gives a lot as well, and your rival also has a good team. Maybe using the Vs.Seeker against some trainers is faster, but I suppose the E4 is the best way.
i use the trainer cafe (once a day) & the elite 4 when raising levels fast in platinum - the versus seeker is good too if you know where the good trainers are (i don't...)
Yeah, beating the Elite Four is no longer a challenge for me. Its just really lengthy... I should probably use the Trainer Café too for maximum experience gain. Thanks.

i know the feeling - my electivire goes through the elite 4 like a hot knife through butter! save before you enter the trainer cafe though dude - you can soft reset to make sure you get 4 trainers in there each day

Not that I have ever heard of, and I really doubt it, although restarting the DS/GBA might be harmful to the device, especially the battery. (And don't tell me that soft reseting is less harmful, it is, but it's still harmful)

You can find fossils in the Ruins of Alph by using Rock Smash.

Question: Where can I find a trainer with a Wormadam in Diamond version, or a wild female Burmy so I can evolve it? I'm trying to fill my Sinnoh dex so I can get the PokeRadar...

Also, how does one check for IVs and EVs? I'm amazed at how people know those exact numbers and I have no idea how to access them o.o

Oh god I remember trying to get Wormadam... you have to get a Burmy off of a Honey Tree, and evolve it.

You use IV calculators, and you keep track of EVs. If you don't keep track of the EVs, you'll have to hack your game to figure them out.

Oh Jesus, really? Greaaat...But wait, the rarity for getting a Burmy off Honey Trees listed on Serebii.net was 0%...Am I screwed? o.o;

Well, crap...So I'd have to use an Action Replay in order to see my EVs atm? Dangit...Thank you for telling me though, really :)

Serebii lies, ignore it :p lol jk. Although Bulbapedia is much more efficient and reliable in my opinion. Check Bulbapedia and see if it says the same thing.

that's a great IV calculator & i use it regularly - to add to your post though you can use EV reducing berries if you lose track of EY's without hacking

Yeah but if you've trained up like your starter throughout the game and battled a million different Pokémon, you'll need 66 berries to be absolutely sure that you've reduced them to 0. If you've been EV training and you lose count, or you have EV trained one stat and you want to erase it and start anew, they're good, but I don't really think that using 66 of them is too viable o_O

you don't need 66 berries dude - you just feed them until the stat can't drop any lower

even if someone had gained 101/101/101/101/101/5 EV's they'd need 56 berries max & the chances of the EV's being that spread out are very unlikely - i use about 25 berries to clear all EV's most of the time

56 berries is still better than hacking imo

When can I get back into distortion world on Pt to get the Griseous Orb for Giratina? Is it possible before E4?

No it isn't. The only entrance to the Distortion World is in Turnback Cave which you can't enter until after you beat the Elite Four.

Thanks

and this might be the most amateur question ever but I can't seem to find an item storage box in this game. Is there anywhere to store items?
