They try to steal research from Prof. Rowan, but you team up with Lucas/Dawn to take on the Team Galactic grunts in a double battle. What Pokemon does Lucas/Dawn use?|
This depends on what starter you choose. Lucas/Dawn uses a starter Pokemon with a type disadvantage to your starter. If you chose Turtwig, they would choose Piplup, if you chose Chimchar, they would choose Turtwig, and if you chose Piplup, they would choose Chimchar. The Team Galactic grunts have a Stunky and a Glameow.
|When you make your way to Valley Windworks, Team Galactic is there. A Galactic grunt in front of the door will lock it with a key and they'll say that other Team Galactic grunts at Floaroma Meadows have a key. When you get there, they are trying to get an item from an NPC. What is this item?|
Honey. Honey is an item that can be slathered on golden trees. When done, you have to wait a few hours until the tree begins to shake, and when this happens, you can interact with it and find a wild Pokemon. You can find common Pokemon such as Wurmple and Burmy and rare Pokemon like Heracross.
|When you enter the Valley Windworks building and get to the end, you'll find the leader of the operation, Galactic Commander Mars and the newest member to Team Galactic. What is the person's name?|
Charon. Charon was added in 'Pokemon Platinum'. He is one of the four commanders of Team Galactic and is the only one who doesn't battle you throughout the game. He is the main scientist for Team Galactic though. It was written in his journal that when he was younger, he befriended a Rotom. Charon's Japanese name was Pluto.
|When fighting Team Galactic Commander Mars, her Zubat has the move Toxic.|
True. Toxic is a poison move that can badly poison its target. Badly poison is when the Pokemon that is inflicted with it will lose more health each turn. The Pokemon will eventually faint if so, even if you use potions. Her other Pokemon is a Purugly at level 17.
|When you enter Eterna City, you will meet your rival. You will also meet Cyrus looking at what in Eterna?|

Cycle manager. The Cycle manager had came to get his Clefairy, which Team Galactic had said was from space. You need to help him so you can get a bicycle to ride through Cycling Road.
|The leader of the operation at Eterna City is Team Galactic commander Jupiter. She has a Level 21 Zubat and another Pokemon at Level 23. Which of these Pokemon evolves into this second Pokemon?|
Stunky. Although only obtainable at Level 34, Jupiter's final Pokemon is Skuntank, a dark/poison type Pokemon. Its only weakness is ground. It has the moves Night Slash, Poison Gas, Smokescreen and Screech, so it can be pretty tough.
|After obtaining five gym badges, a Galactic grunt will set off a Galactic Bomb. Where does he set it off?|
The Great Marsh. When this is done, Crasher Wake inspects the damage done to the Great Marsh while you have to chase the Galactic grunt. He stops running near Lake Valor and battles you. Afterwards, Cynthia and your rival comes and she will give you the Secretpotion to you to heal the headaches of the Psyduck blocking the road to Route 210.

Cyrus. This was added into 'Pokemon Platinum', so this is your first battle with Cyrus. He has a Level 34 Sneasel, a Level 34 Golbat and a Level 36 Murkrow. His Sneasel has Ice Punch so it is likely he bred this. After you defeat him, Cynthia's grandmother gives you HM 03 Surf.
|When you reach Canalave City, you can take a boat to Iron Island, where a person named Riley will give you HM 04 Strength. He'll also explore the inside of the cave with you, where you meet Team Galactic at the end. After beating them, he'll give you an egg of which Pokemon?|
Riolu. Iron Island is an extra place to explore and train before the sixth Gym. Riolu is the pre-evolved form of Lucario, and obtaining the egg for Riolu, hatching it and evolving it into a Lucario is the only way to get it.

He sends Dawn to Lake Verity, near Twinleaf Town, your rival to Lake Acuity, near Snowpoint Town and you to Lake Valor, near Veilstone City and Pastoria City.
