Is it possible to get a Rhyperior without trading to anyone in Pokémon Diamond or Pearl? I am playing on an emulator and will not have the possibility to trade to anyone. I would like not to use cheats if possible.
1It might be worth noting that some emulators actually do allow you to trade. I have used this functionality in the past to trade with another emulator user on the same local network.– CronaxDec 18, 2015 at 14:02
If you were playing on an emulator, you may have to use an NTEVO ROM (No Trade Evolution). I managed to evolve my Scyther and Electabuzz using this kind of ROM.– Obinna NwakwueDec 25, 2016 at 22:36
According to Bulbapedia it is only available in Diamond and Pearl by evolving Rhydon. For that, you need to trade it, so I think you are out of luck, unfortunately.
this is the answer I feared, I thought some pokemon pro would have a miracle... cheats it will be I guess but it feels like less accomplishment to cheat... Dec 18, 2015 at 10:02
You can always"punish" yourself when cheating to feel better. I do not know how far you can go with the emulator, but you could say "everytime I am trading it costs me 500k pokédollars", you would do the evolution and remove 500k from your money. In that way you do not have to feel bad @JohnnyBgud– MarvDec 18, 2015 at 14:42
