Here, ask your questions for Pokmon Fire Red and Leaf Green. Simple Questions that don't need a full thread or debate.

Example Questions:
ANYBODY REPLYING TO THESE QUESTIONS MAY HAVE THEIR POSTS DELETED
How do I capture Deoxys?
How do I get the National Dex?
Where do I go to get to the Mystery Islands?
Where can I get the Card Key?
How do I pass the guard? Drinks don't work anymore!

Anyway, time to ask, and many members will help you out, and hopefully you can help someone also!

what is the solution to the triangle puzzle on tri island?

Duke R
April 25th, 2004, 10:30 AM
It's easy: just press A to the triangle and don't walk to the green, be only in the "yellow".

Where Is a Descent ROM for this and English Patch?...


Oh Yeah..WHERE is Deoxys?

Frostweaver
May 3rd, 2004, 04:37 PM
we do not permit roms on this board... if you're lucky you may find one yourself or on other boards

Deoxys is impossible to catch legally at the moment. Like the southern island event, you need to rely on Nintendo promotion.

I beleive by fishing, but it may be by surfing in some areas. YOu can always evovle a Magikarp.

And as frostweaver said, no ROMs are allowed here PokefanJHR, and to ask for patchs go to the Emulation/Patches Board...

Whats the difference between fire red and leaf green?? Ex. In ruby and sapphire kyrogue and groudon would be the diff. Is there any special pokemon that can be caught in one version and not the otha?

Shadow
May 22nd, 2004, 04:49 PM
Basically the same differences between Blue and Red. Some Pokemon (not legendaries) are exclusive to each game. I beleive the version exclusive list is different then in R/B though.

Yes, all trainers, the first 151 Pokemon, and the forms of Deoxys use new sprites. The other Pokemon use the Ru/Sa sprites. And I think if you battle Ru/SA it will use the Ru/Sa here/heroine sprites for them.
How do I get to Island 8?
Nintendo Promotion...

So Pikachu has a different sprite?

Shadow

Yes since it is one of the original 151 Pokemon.

If you trade Deoxys from LeafGreen to, say, FireRed, would it remain in its LG state? Or would it transform into the FR Deoxys? The same goes for Ru/Sa.

MK

Firemaker
June 23rd, 2004, 03:02 PM
In LG Deoxys is Defense
IN FR Deoxys is in attakc
In R/S Deoxys is normal.

You get Deoxys on island 9

You get to Island 8 by swimmimg there(DUH)

You get the National Dex on Island 1.

mknote
June 23rd, 2004, 04:32 PM
Thanks, but that still didn't answer my question: will Deoxys form change when you trade it to another version?

MK

Shadow
June 23rd, 2004, 05:14 PM
I beleive it changes when you trade it. I don't believe there is any data of FR or LG Deoxys in Ru/Sa so it couldn't stay the same.

This is Flamesplom's friend, Charmeleon (I can't sign up for some reason). You get Deoxys on the last island in FireRed and LeafGreen. You get to this island with a special ticket like the Eon Ticket. You do not get this ticket through the game. :)

Ok, I'm looking forward to this game, as are most. But I have a question. Will there be only 1 Evee again? And is it possibile to get Umbreon and Espeon? This may be unknown at this time, but if someone does know, will the please tell me.

Frostweaver
July 5th, 2004, 06:27 PM
just send Eevee to the breeding center with a ditto, and voila for unlimited Eevees! (this works on anything that has genders except Latios and Latias). This has always worked back in GSC too

Toothache
July 5th, 2004, 06:30 PM
Well, I know that you can get Umbreon and Espeon at the start of Colosseum. I don't think they're bringing back the internal clock that was part of Gold and Silver, so I doubt they can be made in game, but if the game holds true to the original, you'll still be able to pick one up, and evolve it (and of course, with the Day Care centre probably available, or if not you can always trade to Ruby/Sapphire) you can breed with a Ditto (since Eevee's and their Eeveelutions are always male).

Hope that helps

Fakey
July 5th, 2004, 06:37 PM
Thanks. I could always get an Umbreon or Espeon on Ruby. And my friend has Colleseum. I gompletly forgot about Ditto. Another Question. I heard you can't trade with R/S and Colleseum until you fix some machine. But waht about other versions of Leaf/Fire?

Toothache
July 5th, 2004, 06:44 PM
You need to have completed Colosseum before trading between the game and R/S (by beating Nascour and his previous trainers, and the last one (I call the four trainers before Nascour the Not-So-Elite 4 ;-) ).

Fakey
July 5th, 2004, 06:50 PM
Thanks...but I was asking about a machine or something I heard about in Leaf?Fire that you have to fix before you can trade. I don't have Colleseum, or even a GCN (unfortunatley)

Also, is it possible to get both Ho-oh and Lugia? Or can you only get one?

Someone tell me how to save a game? I have everything in Japanese, and I don't know how to read it? it kept getting me this error no wonder it wouldnt save it. Do I click on the 1st one when it opens a little box with 2 words in it? or do I
click the 1st one first and the 2nd one in the buttom.

Heres what I mean

Simon
July 16th, 2004, 09:15 PM
It is an illegal copied file of a game. People copy the game data from a game cartridge into their computers then distribute it on the internet. These copies are illegal. The napster of video games you might say.

You Cant. ^_^ The VBA you use to play your roms has a built in GameShark/Codebreaker. So you just have to enter codes into the Cheat's List and save.

I hope that they do decide to put in the night and day stuff, I liked that. It was a bit annoying at times, but it brought some realism to the game. Anyway. I wonder if when the new gameboy comes out (the one with the two screens) if FR/LG will have a second screen and what it will be? I'm guessing it will show the map of the region your in.

Hehe, no-one is saying your Pokemon aren't strong.. chill out.

Anyway, I'd suggest a Timid nature (+ Speed, - Attack). Ignore Speed EV training, and go for Sp Attack and Sp Defence instead. EV training areas for Special Attack and Special Defence are listed in the Strategies forum. Tentacool are a good common source for Sp Defence EV, not sure about Sp Attack EV though. Use 5 Pokemon with Pick Up to load up on Rare Candy (Zigzagoon are easy to catch) to make the EV training easier.

Oh, and you'll have to get a Ditto if you want to breed an Espeon. I got mine from Colosseum, and he's not done me wrong :-)

Can you get Missingo in LG/FR?

Shadow
July 19th, 2004, 09:54 AM
Can you get Missingo in LG/FR?
Not like in R/B/Y. You can get the empty data Pokemon that were in Ru/Sa but they don't multiply the sixth item you have or anything like that. They are quite stable and don't cause any damage except that they have no attacks and 1 HP so they will always Stuggle themselves to death.

When I was first offereed to go to the island after beating blaine, I declined because I wanted to beat the elite 4 first. Well, I've done that now, and after doing it I collected 60 pokemon, but oak won't give me the national dex. I'm assuming it's because I have to get to island 1 first or beat the elite 4 again. My question is how do I get to Island 1 now since I rejected it the first time? I've looked everywhere and I can't figure it out

Fakey
July 20th, 2004, 08:33 PM
LG/FR will NOT have the internal clock. The daycare will also not be used for breeding. THere is a breeding center on one of the islands. (1 or 2) Serebii.net has a lot of info on the game.

If you decline Bill's trip to the islands at first and you want to go to the islands, go to the Cinnabar Pokemon Center. You'll see Bill, and when you accept his offer, he'll take you to Island 1. Hope that helped!

Why did you ask that here and start a new thread on it? That was unneccesary.

Yes Ditto can breed with any Pokemon that can and the result will be the non-Ditto Pokemon.

From what I've heard it works just like a link cable so it may. I haven't really researched it that much, so I don't know for sure.

Serebii
August 14th, 2004, 08:53 AM
No you cannot use the Wireless Adaptors on RS

It will only work with games designed for it...to trade from FRLG to RS you need a standard Link Cable

August 15th, 2004, 06:36 PM
Do you have to be near the person to be able to battle with them using the wireless adapter that comes with FireRed and LeafGreen? OR can you battle without distance limits, similar to the Internet?

There is a limit :) You have to beable to see the person I think. I honestly dont remember the # though

August 15th, 2004, 10:36 PM
Here's this month's copy of Nintendo Official Magazine UK to clear things up:


The wireless adaptor brings the GBA into the 21st century, where nothing has cables any more. It works a bit like a Wavebird and uses an RF frequency rather than infrared. It contains a chip made by mobile phone makers Motorola and it works 'officially' over a distance of 3 m. But in your best interests the NOM team carried out a scientific investigation to discover it's limits. The 'official' 3m was blown out the water and we managed a whopping 50 m! This figure will be hampered if there are any obstructions in your way, like a wall or a yak. But when you do reach the limits of the adapter's capability, a warning icon appears in the top-right of the screen. Best of all the wireless adaptor will be bundled free with copies of FireRed and LeafGreen - so let the battles commence.

can you trade a pokemon from ruby/sapphire

Mr Cat Dog
August 27th, 2004, 12:40 AM
The only real difference is the Pokemon you can encounter and capture. Like all the previous games - there are some Pokemon that are in one version and some that are on another. Oh... that and the menu screen when you turn on the game. :D

Yes - once you have gotten the Ruby and Sapphire plates which you get sometime after you defeat the Elite Four on the Sevii Islands. I can't remember which ones. You can then trade via the massive machine on Knot Island (Island 1).

Moltres is on one now (you can get to that one before Elite Four), Johto (Gold/Silver) Pokemon are there, and with E-Reader cards, you can catch Lugia, Ho-Oh, and Deoxys there.

salamenceruler04
August 27th, 2004, 04:30 PM
Do you have to have E-reader cards to catch them?

Trainer Ben
August 27th, 2004, 06:31 PM
Are you still able to catch Mewtwo? I pretty sure, but I wanted to ask someone first, just in case you have to use an E-reader. Plus, are the fossils still in the game?

Shadow
August 27th, 2004, 07:50 PM
You need E-Reader cards to get to the islands for Lugia/Ho-Oh and Deoxys. You don't need them for anything else (except Transformation Cave which is not known for certain).

Mewtwo is still in (you need 60 Pokemon caught and beat Elite Four to get National Dex to enter Unknwon Dungeon though). No E-Card required.

The fossils are the same as R/B/Y, except they are reborn at level 5 instead of 30.

Hiroshi Sotomura
August 28th, 2004, 03:08 AM
"Card-E", Shadow, "Card-E". XD

Anyway, you can use Ruby/Sapphire Battle Cards in this game, to allow the old lady in the house of Route 7 to move the boxes and let you go battle trainers you scan. You can also change the trainers in the trainer tower.

Yes, they are the same. This is a R/B/Y remake. The only differences are movesets which had to change to accomadate the new level up moves for Pokemon and the different TMs. And the rival is the same as well.

You get a signature by going to your user cp..gonig to "edit signature" and click on the little link that says intert image( i thinks its a lil sun and moon..r sumin like that) and insert the link(URL) to your picture.......if im not mistaken this is in the FAQ (tell me if im wrong plz)

Frostweaver
August 31st, 2004, 01:12 PM
Regarding the signature, it probably is...

As for charmander being female or male, it's best to be female, but then again, it really doesn't matter since Ditto's back.

Frostweaver
August 31st, 2004, 04:39 PM
Err... I don't know the cheat code thing. I'll have to ask the others to see if they know x_x; sorry

As for Ditto, you can breed any Pokemon with Ditto as long as they have an egg group (note: legendaries have "no egg group." Some no genders like Metagross has an "no egg" egg group, which is still an egg group.), and the baby will be whatever the non-Ditto parent Pokemon is. It's a neat way to breed duplicates and trading "rare starters" or whatever to little kids to rip them off XD

salamenceruler04
August 31st, 2004, 05:11 PM
So...say you start of with charmander..and u catch a ditto and breed them..u can have two charmanders?...and same goes for any other pokemon?

Frostweaver
August 31st, 2004, 05:15 PM
Ditto breeding with _________ = a baby of ___________

(as long as __________ has an egg group).

Yes. That's been done since GSC for a very long time now.

No you can't, since Ruby/Sapphire isn't compatible with the Wireless Communicators.

Tesla7zap
September 4th, 2004, 01:57 PM
but FR/LG should be compatible with the link cable? However, there is some moves I think only exists in FR/LG, the three new elemental attacks, one water, fire and grass. i think they have 5 pp each and your starting pokemon will learn it from a guy depending who you choose, ie charmander will learn the fire attack. but maybe these attacks are already programemd into r/s. I have not gotten so far in FR/LG so i do not know so much.

However, there is some moves I think only exists in FR/LG, the three new elemental attacks, one water, fire and grass. i think they have 5 pp each and your starting pokemon will learn it from a guy depending who you choose, ie charmander will learn the fire attack. but maybe these attacks are already programemd into r/s. I have not gotten so far in FR/LG so i do not know so much.
1) There is four; water (Hydrocannon), fire (Blast Burn), grass (Frenzy Plant), and electric (Volt Tackle).
2) They were programmed in Ru/Sa but unobtainable (excluding cheating/hacking) just like Kinesis in R/B (obtained in Yellow though).
3) Volt Tackle is still unobtainable...
4) Blastburn, Hydrocannon, and Frenzy Plant are just like Hyper Beam, but they are elemental, Volt Tacle is like Double Edge.

September 4th, 2004, 02:45 PM
Volt tackle is still unobtainable? if it is, why did they put it in the games if it's unobtainable?

And since you can trade between FR/LG you should be able to battle between them

EDIT: WOW, I got the 700th post on the R/S simple question thread and the 100th post on this thread. and soon i reach my 100th post....im teh best :D

They put it in there for possibility of Nintendo promotions or future games. Volt Tackle is one of the things supporting the idea of a remade Yellow (which is unlikely). Volt Tackle will most likely be available in Emerald, another future game, or through some promotional event.

How do you get an eon ticket? are e-reader...are what ever kind of card u need to visit the transformation cave.....




(if this was answered in the FAQ i could not find it because i looked)

Shadow
September 4th, 2004, 05:17 PM
You can get to Transformation/Altering Cave after getting the National Dex (by beating Elite Four and catching 60 or more Pokemon) and talking to the guy in the Pokemon Center on One Island. The Eon ticket is for Ru/Sa to get Lati@s. All E-Reader functions were removed from the English FR/LG.

Frostweaver
September 4th, 2004, 05:19 PM
We won't know how the Altering Cave is going to work for the english version yet. The japanese one relies on E-card scanning. So until the day the game comes out in English and when the hackers get into action, we won't know how to change the wild Pokemon within the Altering Cave.

I was wondering about how the Mystic and Aurora tickets will work in LG/FR...I was reading on another site that they would be obtainable by doing the Mystery Event at a Nintendo Event..Well being that I live where there is rarely a Nintendo Event, will we be able to use a GameShark to get the tickets? I remember trying to use GameShark to get the Eon Ticket in R/S, and while it did put the Eon Ticket in my bag, it didn't recognize that it was there..Someone told me this had to do with not using the E-Reader to get the ticket legit..Well since they took the E-Reader out of LG/FR, will it be more likely for a GameSharked ticket to work?

Frostweaver
September 6th, 2004, 02:42 PM
well...

a) Nintendo will definitely have its own way to give us the tickets, E-card or not

b) I'm pretty sure that 90% of us live in somewhere that's 100 miles away from Nintendo promotions (well maybe not 100 miles... how about 90 miles?)

3) Gameshark and any other cheating device can do anything, including tickets. As long as the game can do it, cheats can do it.

The only questions I got in my mind is how they're going to handle Altering Cave in English, as we don't have E-Cards to change the Pokemon there... but that we won't know the answer to until it comes out.

I think so, salamenceruler04. Aniway, that means that we can only get Chikorita/Cyndaquil/Totodile by Colosseum? Another question: is larvitar in FR/LG?

Abusoru
September 9th, 2004, 06:26 AM
OK I got FR and LG. I started with LG and wanted to pick Squirtle.

1. Is there a way to tell what gender the Pokemon is before you actually pick it?

2. Can you get a female starter, Squirtle in this case? I tried for almost an hour to get a female but didn't get one. I saved right there and kept resetting but kept getting a male.

3. Keeping in mind I just started the game (and I never have played the original R/B) where do I find Eevee? And is there more than one to catch?

Toothache
September 9th, 2004, 06:55 AM
I'll sort these questions

1. No, you have to pick your starter before you find out the gender

2. All 3 starters have 1/8 chance of being female.

3. Eevee can be found in Celadon City, in the Game Freak's tower. (Also has 1/8 chance of being female). You are given just one.

Bear in mind that later on you can always breed with Ditto to get more of any non-legendary or non-baby Pokemon.

Abusoru
September 9th, 2004, 07:01 AM
Thanks Toothache.

When you breed with Ditto, do you use a male or female to breed with Ditto?

Toothache
September 9th, 2004, 07:20 AM
It doesn't matter, Ditto can breed with males or females. That's why they are so useful. Check the Breeders Corner (I just added an FAQs section to the Beginners Breeding Guide)

Abusoru
September 9th, 2004, 08:01 AM
Thanks again.

Ok I'm back with another question. In the US, when you pre-ordered FR or LG you got a mini guide to the game free. It says in the guide, (not quoting here, don't have it with me) that your starter pokemon might/could learn a special move if the friendship gets to a certain level.

Does anyone know what move it is that the starters learn?

Toothache
September 9th, 2004, 09:23 AM
The 'special move' for the three starters isn't gained by friendship, but with a Move Tutor. There is a Move Tutor that can teach your starter an elemental move that works like Hyper Beam - attacks first round, then you recharge the second round. You can only get this move when your Pokemon fully evolves however.

Blastoise - Hydro Cannon
Charizard - Blast Burn
Venusaur - Frenzy Plant

Right, I have a question on breeding (wow, people come to me for this kinda stuff):

If a male Pokemon learns a move from the FR/LG Move Tutors, and they breed with a female Pokemon which would learn the move from the same FR/LG Move Tutor move, will the baby that comes out of the egg learn that move? This works with all TMs, so I'd like to know if the Move Tutor moves work the same way (since you only get to learn a move once from them)

The special ability Dragonite has is Inner Focus. This will keep it from flinching. A few moves it can learn that the others can't are: Wing Attack (55), Earthquake (TM), Brick Break (TM), Sandstorm (TM), Rock Tomb (TM), Aerial Ace (TM), Steel Wing (TM), Cut (HM), Fly (HM), Strength (HM), Rock Smash (HM), and Dive (HM). To tell the truth it all depends on what you want. Dragonite is a strong pokemon... its attack is very high.

be persistant very very persistant

that happened to me with moltres
I took it down to 1 hp and then I paralyzed it and it took me about
70 ultra balls to capture it that was annoying 'cuz I had to do it 3 times
to get a proper nature.

I still havent' trained it

Articuno was easier to catupre I just put it in the red and then paralyzed it
too

I think maybe the best condition is sleep
I put my zapdos to sleep when it was about half way and it only took
about 5 ultra balls to capture it.

so if u have something that can put them to sleep try that.
and don't train them agains the elite four 'til after you EV train them
they're good pokemon, you don't wanna ruin them...

as for the elite for a good team of 6 lv. 50's should do fine
I recommend maybe this team

here's the types I recommend for dealign with each individual elite 4

Lorelie

Raichu

you'll need a fast lelectric type
at lv. 50 raichu is faster than all her pokemon just don't use a
thunder dancer raichu as it'll power up her pokemon's surf attack

Bruno

Slowbro

that's probably the best in dealing with bruno as all his pokemon
are rock/ground or fighting types.
just make you take several recovery items with you.

Agetha

Persian

persian is probably the best pokemon to deal with Agetha
it's immune to her pokemon's strogest attacks
and by lv.50 it should know faint attack, i'm not sure but I think
persian can also use shadow ball so if u have the money buy one at
the celadon game corner

Lance

a high level grass type to deal with the 3 dragons
and a high level electric to deal with gyarados and aerodactyl
the grass type should know both Leech seed and hypnosis/sleep powder
his dragons are really volnerable to sleep , plus they tend to use
Hyper beam a lot so u don't wanna waste your time healing all the time
so best to make them take naps
good candidates are Venusaur, Exeggutor

as for Gary...
well that depends on what you started with

I used ninetails to deal with his fire and grass types
Raichu for the water and flying types
he's not so hard just before you take on the elite make sure your
whole team is at leas lv.50 then u won't have such a hard time with
Gary...good luck

Thanks a lot! But is EV training really that good? I've never really understood it...

September 14th, 2004, 06:46 AM
ok my question:

do you get to pick 1 of 3 starters (bulbasaur etc)
then get to pick another 1 of the other 3 on a new island (chikorita etc)

--------------------------------------------------

and i also heard that depending on what starter you use then that is what rare doig you will see, if this is true what are the combinations please?

bulbasaur =
charmander =
squirtle =

thanks.

EV training is really really that good
it'll make your pokemon a lot stronger if you do it properly.

now EV training
ok think of it as giving specific stats more experience.
ok here's the stats
HP
ATK
DEF
Sp.ATK
Sp.DEF
SPD
now each of these stats can have a maximum of 255 stat points or EV's
added to it. ok...
but the thing is every pokemon can ONLY have 510 stat points or EV's
added to it total
meaning you can' ever max out all of any one pokemon's stats.
personally I think it's kind of lame.

here's some good pokemon to train against
for special attack EV's fight lots of
Gastly/Haunter do it in the pokemon tower in lavander town.

Gastly provides 1 point
Haunter provides 2 points

for normal attack EV fight lots of

Bellsprout = 1 point
Weepinbell = 2 points

there's guides on gamefaqs that tells you what type of EV or Stat points
each pokemon gives and how many each gives.
some give mixed points meaning they give points to more than 1 stat
for example Seviper gives 1 point to attack and special attack

the best guide I found to what pokemon gives what EV's is at
serebii.net theirs has pictures and it's all organized by what type
of EV's u wanna earn.
it's in the game mechanics section
find where it says ev's they explain how they work too
and then there's little links that u can click and they have the pokemon
sorted out by what type of ev's they give

no, you don't get any of the other starters
if you want chikorita/cyndaquil/totodile you have to get them from
colusseum (spell check)

if you want the ruby sapphire starters then you have to trade with
someone who has ruby or sapphire

Toothache
September 14th, 2004, 07:09 AM
No, you don't get another starter, but you do get the chance to get a legendary dog.

Bulbasaur = Entei
Squirtle = Raikou
Charmander = Suicune

Where do u get Metal Coat, and Sun Stone in FireRed.
I want to evolve my Gloom and Scyther. :D

you can also thief metal coats from wild magnemite/ton, this works in Ru/Sa haven't tried it in FR/LG but i'm guessing the same would be true.

Mr Cat Dog
September 14th, 2004, 10:04 AM
In answer to Toothache's question on breeding - if the baby Pokemon can learn the move, then if the father has it via move tutor - it'll learn it. An example is teaching a Raichu Substitue, then breeding with a female Plusle. The resulting Plusle should know Substitute as an egg move. Hope it helps ^_^

VanirElf
September 14th, 2004, 10:06 AM
you can get a metal coat on one of the islands
I think it's island 5 or 6 there's a pillar where the guy standing there burried
his onix named "tectonix" if you check the area there, you can get a
metal coat, it's near the stone at the bottom of the pillar.
you can find a sun stone too, it's also on one of the islands but i'm sorry
I don't remember which one at least it is in leaf version
I don't know about red...I miss oddish

Mr Cat Dog
September 14th, 2004, 10:57 PM
If you want to improve happiness, the best way - and also the most expensive way - is to buy stat raising items such as Iron or Calcium. Although this might wreck your EVs for future training, your desired Pokemon will become happier. Just be sure to get the National Dex before you try this... as they'll stop evolving mid-way through evolution.

Other ways are just leaving them in battle, just having them in your squad, and healing them when they get hurt. They are slower... but do work as well.

ok ive heard tonnes on this game and read about it ALOT but never found out
-does this game follow R/B/Y story THEN go into G/S/C story, or after you complete the (original) games story as it were do you go into a new section of the game never created before with these extra islands on?

thanx for the help, i just wanna fantasise about it til' i get it
stupid uk release dates

Mr Cat Dog
September 15th, 2004, 07:08 AM
I know how you feel... stupid Europe :(

King's Rock - Can be nabbed off Hariyama in RuSa if you want to trade... or via someone on one of the islands... I can't remember which one though :/
Metal Coat - Can be nabbed off Magnemite/ton in RuSa and FrLg

FRLG follows the RBY story, but at Cinnibar Island (once you've beaten Blaine) you have the opportunity to go to Islands 1-3. There is no part of the GSC story apart from excerpts that few people say... such as Bill lives in Goldenrod and stuff like that.

About ur chansey.. dont level it up with rare candies. Ruins Ev training plus u may not get a blissy. Just keep battling with it and try not to let it faint. And about the amulet coin, U do get it in a place like where salamence said. U get it upstairs from Oak's aide if u have collected 40 kinds of pokemon. I think its left of celedon or left of Fusica. Right of Fusica is The Exp share, which requires 50 species collected.

I like to add somthing not all 151-251 are from colloseum some are on the islands

Island: Sentret+ev, Ledyba+ev, spinarak+ev, Natu+ev, Marill+ev, Hoppip+ev, Wooper+ev, Murkrow, Dunsparce, Quilfish, Shuckel, Heracross, Sneasel, Slugma, Swinub, Swinub, Remoraid+ev, Delibrird, Manetine, Skamory, Phanpy, Miltank, Larvitar
Collossum: 3 starters+ev(G/S/C), Hoothoot+ev, Mareep+ev, Sudowoodo, Aipom, Sunkern+ev, Yanma, Pineco+ev, Gligar, Sunbbull+ev, Teddiursa+ev, Houndour+ev, Stantler, Smeargle, Ho-Oh
FR/LG: Specials: Crobat, Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Bellossom, Politoed, Slowking, Misdrivus, Unown, Wobbuffet, Steelix, Scizor, Kingdra(ev is Water stone now), Porygon2, Tyrogue+ ev, Smoochhum, Magby, Elekid, Blissey, Entei, Raikou, Sunicune,
R/S: Chinchou, Girafarig, Corsola

Some of the island pokemon can be caught other places but I just put any pokemon with the possiblity to be caught in the islands under island,
Pokemon under Collusseum are only in colloseum,
FR/LG can be caught threw special evs in fr/lg after National pokedex,
R/S pokemon are only in R/S
"+ev" means evolve or breed to get other stages

Don't forget most pokemon form colloseum need to be bred to get lower levels beacuse they start in high stages of evolution.

the golem

if I get eggs for charmander and squirtle will she teach them thier
exclusive moves.
um. Blast Burn and Hydro Cannon???
I hope so, please let it be so

I wouldn't have thought so. All the things I've read say starter only. So... I don't think that even if you're Pokemon are the same species as starters... that they will learn it. I may be wrong (and I probably am ^_^) but that's just what I think.

new tip I got in an email from Nintendo...

"New to the catch-'em-all rage? Having trouble catching that elusive wild Pokmon? Then try this trick, pardner. 1. Throw a ball at the Pokmon. Any ball will work, but a more powerful one improves your odds. 2. The instant the ball explodes, press and hold the B Button. 3. Release B when the ball wobbles a second time. This trick isn't foolproof, but it dramatically increases your odds of a successful capture. You don't need to weaken a Pokmon beforehand, but some Pokmon, such as Mewtwo and Zapdos, need to first be put to sleep. "

That's what they call a psychometric response. You're thinking the button pressing affects the catching, when in reality it does nothing at all. It's a placebo effect.

My brother still believes rumours like that. In Fire Red, he tried that trick with Moltres, and was absolutely shocked when it actually broke out of the ball when he'd putt it to sleep, but not taken any damage off it. Silly rumours... ^_^

Oh and Shadow, Rival is Green in Fire Red and Leaf Green. They named Janine Charine as they could've been lazy to look up her original name.

Ever since the start, your game has kept details and exact data of your starter. So using a baby of it will not work, as the game has kept that starter's original data and must be validated properly with your own starter. Let's say I get a Squirtle. When I beat Rival (Green), Professor Oak mentions that you improved since you got your Squrtle. Anyway, FRLG keeps the data of your starter inside its save data, and your starter will have that flag forever. Pokmon hatched by it will not carry that flag.

A little off topic, but I wanted to put in my input before I forgot.

In regards to the Charine/Janine comment.. Did anyone ever think that perhaps Koga has more than one daughter? If you actually look at it, Charine has brown hair, and is fairly young. Janine had black hair, and since Gold and Silver took place three years after Red and Blue, Charine seems much too young to have become a gym leader in only 3 years. Isn't it possible that Janine is off training on her own somewhere?
