The Eterna Chataux is a nice place to catch ghosties really. It's also the only place you can catch Rotom after you get the National Dex.
To begin with you can only catch Gastly, but once you beat the Elite 4, you can stick any of the GBA games into the GBA slot of the DS, go back, and catch Haunter and Gengar in the wild too. (Yes, Gengar - though you can only find it in the room with eyes on the wall).
I'm a slow trainer but I'm enjoying the game thus far. Like the new twists in Gym battles though it's somewhat annoying when the Gym leaders last Pokemon is now always some kind of annoying Pokemon with a secondary type making it hard to beat with the traditional weaknesses.
Liking the internet/current society type references though, "oh snap" and so on XD. Plus I'm glad to see so far it's not just generic battles all the time, Eterna Forest surprised me and It's good to see double battles coming into play more, rather than just being a lousy gimmick like it was in Ruby and Sapphire.
Also new berry grow system ftw, Like the fact you get more berries if you really look after the plants.

The game was so not ever about really catching them all. I mean, I got all 151 the first time, but that wasn't why I played it. Anyway, I am officially really jealous of you all and bet that when it comes out in June, I'll be the only one here playing it anew.
Scyther, Scizor, Tyranitar, Aggron, and Rampardos all get my vote in Diamond, but I'm upset over missing out on Salamence in Pearl (but I can port it over from my GBA games, so it really doesn't matter).
You do it in-game. Go to the Pokemon Centre, head to the basement and talk to the WiFi club people there. Just remember to use the Pal Pad you get from going down there the first time to add people's friend codes and get them to add yours.
