Features Printable version
Have over sixty Pokemon in your Pokedex and defeat the Elite Four. Return to Pallet Town and see the professor. He will give the National Dex to Gary and yourself. You can use it to see the data for all 386 Pokemon.

Network Machine

This allows you to trade to Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. Fix the Network Machine on One Island. To do this, get the Sapphire and Ruby items and take them to the machine.

Mystery Gift option

Enter any Pokemon Mart and go to the clipboard that is by the shop keeper on the counter. Take the survey and enter in the words "LINK TOGETHER WITH ALL". The man will then alert you that you can now have access to the Mystery Gift option, after saving. To make it easier to find the word you are looking for, press Select, which will take you to A-Z mode, then select the a letter to bring up a list of words, beginning with the first letter of the word that it begins with.

Get all starters

To get all the starters (Bulbasaur,Charmander, and Squirtle), you will need two Game Boy Advances and another Pokemon GBA game. Start with Bulbasaur, then trade it to your other Pokemon game. After that, start a new game. Start with Charmander and trade it. Then, start another new game and start with Squirtle. Keep Squirtle and catch two Pokemon that you do not want. Trade them for the other two starters you traded to your other Pokemon game. You will now have all three starters.


To get the ancient Pokemon Aerodactyl, go to the house to the right of the Museum in Pewter City. Note: You must have Cut. Talk to the scientist and he will give you the Old Amber. Take it to the Lab on Cinnabar Island and let the scientist bring it back to life. It will be at level 5.


Surf south from Fuschia until you hit a barrier. Then, Surf west to the Seafoam Islands. When you see boulders, push them into the pits to reach the legendary bird Articuno.

Recommended moves for Beedrill

First, catch a Weedle . Then, train it until it turns into a Beedrill. Teach it the TM Aerial Ace . Train it (use it at gyms that use Grass/Bug Pokemon ) until it is at level 50. It should know the move Endeavor. Use it at tight spots.


To obtain Deoxys, you must travel to Island 9 and push the triangle forward. To do this, you need to obtain the Aurora Ticket, which can only obtained through a Nintendo Event, such as Pokemon Rocks America 2004. Bring your Pokemon Fire Red or Leaf Green cartridge to any of the events in Atlanta, Minneapolis, or Seattle to receive the Aurora Ticket. The same goes for obtaining Lugia, Ho-Oh (both on Island 8, requiring Mystery Pass); and Celebi and Mew (details unknown). Note: Ho-Oh can also be obtained via a link to Pokemon Coliseum. In the Pokemon Fire Red, you will get the attack version of Deoxys.


On the Island 4, go to where you met Lorelli of the Elite Four. Then, Surf on the water . If you are lucky, you will see a wild Lapras.


Ledyba can be found in Pattern Bush on Six Island.


Defeat the Elite Four, then go to the Cerulean City Cave. Mewtwo will be there. You will need HM6 Rock Smash and HM3 Surf.


To get Moltres you need HM4 Strength, HM6 Rock Smash, and HM3 Surf. Go to One Island, and all the way to the right until you reach water. Surf to the north and you will see land. Continue to go north until you hit water again. Then, Surf north again until you reach land. Go up and move the boulders. Continue to go up and you will enter Mt. Ember. Pass the mountain and you will see more boulders up ahead. Move them and you will encounter Moltres, the Legendary Fire Bird Pokemon.


To catch a Zapdos, go to the Pokemon Center beside the Rock Cave. From the Pokemon Center, go up until you reach water. Surf to the Power Plant and go inside. Find your way around, and at the end you will find Zapdos, the Thunder type Legendary Bird.

Legendary Dogs

The legendary dog that you get in the game depends on your starter:

Johto Pokemon

To get your first Pokemon from the Johto Region, defeat the Elite Four. Go to Island 3, then go in the tunnel. Talk to the man and he will give you a Nugget. Go out the door, and there will be a small patch of grass. Walk around in it, and you will find your first Johto Pokemon.

Duplicate Pokemon

Note: This trick will only work on Pokemon that have a gender. Either male or female will do. For example, if you want a friend's Charizard but you do not want to trade a level 100 male Venusaur for it, catch a Ditto on Route 13 to 15. Take both your Venusaur and Ditto to 4 Island to the old couple and breed them. The next morning you will have a Bulbasaur egg ready to trade. This can be used to get all the evolutions of Evee. Note: This trick will not work on Mewtwo or most of the legendary Pokemon.

Easy money

To get easy money, use a Meowth with the Pay Day attack in wild or trainer battles.

Infinite Safari Zone time

Enter the Safari Zone, then walk into an area and stop in the grass Then, tap the D-pad, but do not move You will find the Pokemon in that area without wasting steps.

New moves

There are four new moves not found in earlier Pokemon games:

Poison Sting

The Poison Sting attack can always poison if you press and release A at the exact time.. Time it by looking at one of the bubbles. For example, fight a Mankey. The one that crosses the hand to the left of the screen is the one to time it by, by pressing A just as it starts to pass the hand and releasing it just as it pops. It always poisons the enemy. This works for all Pokemon with the Poison Sting ability against all enemies, except for Bug types. Also, the Constrict attack can always get criticals if you press and release A twice while the vines are pulsating.


Find a black mark in the grass, then go up to it and press A. Note: This will not work with items such as Big Pearl, Stardust, and Rare Candies.

Black Belt

After you get to One Island, travel up the path called Kindle Road and go towards the volcano. Along this route, you will encounter several trainers with Fighting-type Pokemon. Have your Pokemon use Thief to steal a Black Belt from each of the Pokemon. After you have a Black Belt, take it off your Pokemon and use the VS Seeker to fight the opponent again. Steal another Black Belt from his other Pokemon. Every Fighting-type on this route is equipped with a Black Belt, which boosts the power of all Fighting-type moves.


Go to the last person (Team Rocket member) on Nugget Bridge. Lose to that person after you get the Nugget. Repeat this until you have the desired number of Nuggets. Note: If you save the your game after defeating him, you will no longer be able to do this.

Rare Candy

To get more Rare Candies, look for some Meowths. You are 30% likely to get one.

Repel and Super Repel

Repel and Super Repel will keep all wild Pokemon of a lower level than the first Pokemon in your party from attacking. However, if the wild Pokemon is of the same level or higher, it will attack. Due to the decreased amount of Pokemon to fight, you will have less random encounters. To exploit the use of this, go to a cave with high level Pokemon such as at Victory Road or Union Cave. Use the Repel once inside. Find a boxed-in type of corner and tap the D-pad gently towards a wall. If done correctly, you will not hear a bumping sound. Doing this should not reduce the number of steps remaining on you Repel counter, because the Repel only counts movement that causes the character to take a step not turning. Just turn into a wall to make it easier for beginners. This trick is useful because you are always facing a Pokemon that is of equal or greater level, allowing you to get levels much faster than usual.

Running Shoes

Follow through Viridian Forest, go to Brock (the first gym leader), and defeat him. Brock has three Pokemon: Geodude level12, Onix level 14, and Geodude level 11. Then, go to the path that leads to Mount Moon's base. Try to go past the man standing slightly past the entrance. He should stop you. He is Professor Oak's assistant. After talking to him, he will give you the Running Shoes. Additionally, your aide will give you the Running Shoes after the first gym.

Sacred Ash

Go to the Naval Rock Island (if you have the Mystic Ticket), and to the location where Ho-oh confronted you. Use the Itemfinder and it will automatically dig up the Sacred Ash, just like the Macho Brace at Viridian Gym after Giovanni left; and the Top from Pokemon Tower after Mr. Fugi left.


In the Power Station, in the room with Zapdos, use your Itemfinder to locate an item in that area. You should find a Thunderstone.

Silph Co.

Go to the fifth floor. Then, go right until you reach a wall. You will see a Team Rocket grunt. Do not go in front of him. Instead, go all the way up so he must walk to fight you. Make sure that when he walks up, he makes it so you can walk past him after you defeat him. An easy way to defeat him is to use Water type Pokemon with Surf, After defeating him, go behind him down the narrow path, then turn. You will see a Pokeball. It has the Card Key, which is the item that you need to open doors. Go back out and down to level three. Go left until you see a locked room that has a portal in it. It also has a locked room behind it as well. Go into the first locked room and use the warp. Make sure you have some strong Pokemon to battle your rival. Defeat him, then talk to the man standing against the left wall. He will heal you and give you Lapris. Then, go through the other portal (not the one you came from, but other on on the other side of the table). Defeat the Team Rocket grunt, then defeat the Team Rocket Boss. Next, talk to the owner of Silph Co. He will give you the Master Ball. You now can fight Gym Leader Sabrina.

Get to One Island

To Get to One Island, defeat the Cinnabar Island Gym Leader, Blaine. When you come out, Bill will take you to One Island and give you the Tri-Pass. This will allow you to return at any time by taking the Pass to the boat dock in Vermilion City.

Get to Saffron City

Unlike in Pokemon Red and Blue, to get into Saffron City, you do not give the guard a Fresh Water. You must go to Celadon City then enter the Game Freak building. Inside is an old woman with Pokemon around her It is the building above the Game Corner. Once there, talk to the old lady. She gives you some "tea", which you can then give to the guard. All the guards will now let you go into Saffron City. Remember to get the powerful TM 29 Psychic in Mr. Psychic's house (in the bottom far left house of the city). Also, your Pokemon should at least level 38 or higher when attempting to battle Sabrina.

Get to Saffron City earlier

This trick requires two Game Boy Advances, a link cable, a Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire game with a "Fresh Water" in the pack, and a Pokemon Fire Red or Leaf Green game that is completed and able to trade with Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire. Also, you will need another Pokemon Fire Red or Leaf Green cartridge. Give a Pokemon a Fresh Water. Trade the Pokemon from Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire to the completed Pokemon Fire Red or Leaf Green game. Take the Fresh Water and attach it to a Pokemon not from Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire. Trade it to the other Pokemon Fire Red or Leaf Green game. Give the Fresh Water to the guard. You can now access Saffron City easier. You can also do the same thing without the Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire cartrigde. Also, it works better when you have the completed cartridge and your friend has the unfinished game.

Navigate through the lost cave on Island 5

Move right, up, down, down, right, left, down, right, up and you will arrive at your destination. Note: You can go different ways, but you will end up either finding an item or going back to the start.

Get to Sabrina without battling any trainers

This is a long process, but it is the easiest way. Go into the first square, then go up, down, down, up, down, up, up, down, down, up, up, up, down, then down and you will be there.

Catching Safari Zone Pokemon

When you encounter a Safari Zone Pokemon, throw a rock at it. If it does not flee, use a safari ball. You should be able to catch it about 85% of the time.

Easy slot machine wins in Celedon City

Use the slot machine at Celdadon City that is at the top in the row you face when you enter. It seems to be easier to get triple sevens if you can time it correctly.

Naval Rock

When you first go in, just go straight until you hit a wall. If you want to get Lugia first, go to the right. If you want Ho-oh first, go to the left. It really does not matter, because you can get both. They will both appear at level 70.

Vs. Seeker

Go to the Vermilion Pokemon Center and talk to the girl closest to Nurse Joy.

More than one attempt when catching a Legendary Pokemon

When you are close to a Legendary Pokemon and want to catch it, save the game just before you battle it. If you accidentally make it faint, Just reset the game and try again.

Determining Pokemon's feelings towards you

When you use an item on one of your Pokemon outside of a battle, such as a Potion, the Pokemon will either move closer or away from you in the short intermission sequence. How far the Pokemon moves depends on how much it likes you. If it does not move at all, it feels neutral.

Answers to Blaine's questions

The answers, in order are: yes, no, no, no, yes, and no.

Trainer name comment

At the Pokemon Trainer Fan Club in Saffron City, the blonde man in the back will mention the last person you battled in real life. For example, if you battle a friend who named their character "Dusty", he will say, "Dusty's cool, huh? I love the way he talks. I'd really relish a chance to meet him in person once."

In-game reset

While playing a game, press A + B + Start + Select.

Recommended starter

Choose a starter Pokemon (Bulbasaur recommended), then battle your rival. After you reach One Island, make sure you have two Fire Pokemon. This depends on your starter Pokemon. Also, make sure that one is highly trained, so it has at least one strong attack. Also, make sure this Pokemon is a male. Then, put them in the daycare. When they find an egg, take it. Then, train this Pokemon to a high level (just high enough to defeat your rival).

Defeating Bruno

After you have already conquered the Elite Four, use a strong Fire and Flying type and you will win. One strong attack from a Charizard, such as Fire Blast will be able to obliterate both Steelix with one hit. Hitmonlee can be defeated from one Fly (HM Tech) attack. Hitmonchan can be defeated with a Fly attack, followed by a quick Wing Attack.

Defeating the Elite Four

After you defeat the Elite Four and you give Celio the Ruby and Sapphire Plate (on the seven islands), you can re-challenge the Elite Four. Their Pokemon are now changed and become much more stronger than the first time you challenged them. Here are the combinations:

Defeating Giovanni

An easy way to defeat Giovanni in all battles is to use a Water Pokemon with Surf on all his Pokemon.

Defeating Sabrina

Buy a Poke Doll from the department store in Celadon City. Then, go to the top left house in Saffron City and go upstairs. Talk to the girl and she will teach one of your Pokemon Mimic. Go to the gym and begin your battle against Sabrina. Once she uses a Psychic move with one of her Pokemon, Mimic it and you will have it for the rest of the battle.

Pokemon and items in Safari Zone

The Safari Zone is located to the north of Fuchsia City. The following are items you can find:

Secret Trainer Card stickers

Go to the lowest house on Island Two and talk to the man inside. Complete the following tasks to get the corresponding sticker:
