Maybe for you, but everyone plays differently so I would think the times would vary alot.

I agree with the post above, it took me way less to get to Mewtwo for me

im pretty sure i took the shortest route to gain entrance to cerulean cave but... if you say so guys.

training the pokemon to beat the elite 4 took the longest.

and i only raised 4 strong pokemon with 2 HM slaves, i probably could have did it with 2 or 3 strong.

Dude, I caught mine in 12 hours.

Never thought it'd take someone 42 hours.

I got it in 25. @___@. But I barely trained, swept with the legendary birds as well. :3.

I don't have mewtwo yet and have played for 77 hours OTL

What do you need other than beating the elite 4? (I beat it and still couldn't get in)

There's no set time to play through the game.

- beat the elite 4
- catch 60 pokemon (thats the other thing, didnt know i had to do this so i was doing this later)
- get national Dex from Oak
- Do Bills Sevii Island Missions
- Do Celio's Sevii Island Missions. (get the Ruby and Sapphire for him)

and Cerulean Cave should now be open.

It took be a good 14 hours to get Mewtwo. 1 hour for each badge, that equals 8. My Pokemon were usually good enough for the E4 for I didn't have to train. Took be about 45 minutes to sweep through the E4. = 8 Hours 45 Minutes. Finishing the Sevii Islands took me about 2 hours. = 10 hours 45 min. Then an 1 hour of free time. Then the battle.

bah anyone who's saying 15, 25, or wateva hours.

thats a dirty lie

coz you have to have pokemon at around LVL 65 atleast to beat the E4.
and that takes time.
training the pokemon took up most of my time, and i was VS Seekering ppl that give lots of EXP.

Ever try with just one Pokemon? Instead of evenly levelling 4 Pokemon, just powerlevel one of them. Makes the game super boring but you plow through everything with ease and by the time you get to the E4 it's so overlevelled you can get through them with some Full Restores and Ethers. :/ Or so I assume, anyway.

July 23rd, 2009, 09:54 AM
Uh, you can't say 'It takes 42 hours to get Mewtwo', because we all play differently. Some people will take longer, becuase they'll train up their team and try to catch Mewtwo later, which holds true for me, I took in total 52 hours, whilst some will speed through the game for the sake of catching Mewtwo, they can take record times. (My brother took 8 hours, no joke!) And some will do a bit of each. I find your arrogant manner to be very uncouth, you deserve a lesson in manners. If I were with you, I'd kick you.

Ever since I got my FireRed, I never caught Mewtwo. Not even in my Leaf Green copy. Or R/B/Y either, which is kind of sad. In the ten years I played Pokemon, I never caught Mewtwo, but if it's just FR/LG, than I haven't caught it since the day it came out.

Acctually I beat the elite four and gary with a lvl 40 Venasaur lvl 37 Lapras
lvl 34 Snorlax lvl 55 zapdos lvl 52 moltres lvl 51 articuno and the first time i ever played fire red I got mewtwo at full health with my second ultra ball. Anyone who want to become a complete ass and say this is a lie this is not

That long???

Fastest it took me to Mewtwo was a just-under-thirteen hour run with Charmander as starter.

I eventually had:

Charizard, Parasect, Mr.Mime, Magneton, Snorlax, Vaporeon all hovering in the mid-60's.

The first time I played through LeafGreen it took about 20 hours to get to Mewtwo for me, because I wasn't sure where to go to get the Ruby and Sapphire plates, since I had the rest of the game mapped out in my mind from playing the originals.

On subsequent tries my time obviously got shorter.

LinK93
August 1st, 2009, 04:52 AM
It toked me 13 hours i could have less 1 hour but i used the master ball on articuno and i was playing on yellow so there wasn´t any special balls neither the missigno so i needed to freeze him and lower his life and it wasn't false swipe 8/

BlueEew
August 1st, 2009, 07:00 AM
It does depend on the person. I believe that I could get Mewtwo around the 8 - 10 hours mark easily. I played through Ruby and beat the leauge and caught all the legends and it was only like 7 - 8 hours.

Cacnea08
August 1st, 2009, 07:21 AM
I just easily got Mewtwo! I already know the place of Ruby Stone and Sapphire Stone!

August 2nd, 2009, 06:44 AM
I got to mewtwo in 20 hours just used a wigglytuff through the whole game and soloed the E4 so no need to grind for me wiggly was around lv 85 when I reach victory road

I got to mewtwo with a 14 hour game time, however when I left the cave it was 15 so about 14 hours and 40 minutes for me..

I'm at 190 game time (240 for Pearl @ 3rd Badge) in Leaf Green and I've 135/151 Pokémon caught :\ I mass-leveled them all, even if I don't us'em, to 55 before beating Geovanni; I still hafta get'em all to 65 and then 70 for Mewtwo, so I should catch him around 250h of game time.

I play a bit differently though lol

kain_Ronin
August 2nd, 2009, 12:40 PM
Dood, i've played for 17 hours, I've got 60 pokemon in my dex, and I've just got the 8th badge.
And I'm going incredibly slowly.
I doubt that beating the elite 4 and doing the missions is gonna take 25 hours.

If I tried right from the start, it would probably take me like... 20 hours total.
You just suck at pokemon 8D
I kid.

August 3rd, 2009, 10:28 AM
Catching Mewtwo didn't take me 42 hours...much lesser in FireRed/LeafGreen, and when I fought it, I was really lucky to catch it from the first try with an Ultra Ball. :D
In Generation I games...it took me more than 42 hours to get one because I didn't know how to acces the Cerulean Cave.

You're lying. No one can catch Mewtwo in 2 hours, even if they traded their starter for a high-level Pokemon to power-run them through the game.

SmashBro
August 3rd, 2009, 05:37 PM
it depends, in LG I was to lazy to train my pokemon so i just used the legendary birds, and alot of full restores, so i caught in under 20 hrs. but in FR, it's been 17 hrs and I only have 5 badges, but my pokemon lvs range from 40-50

August 4th, 2009, 07:39 PM

well i caught metwo around the 80 hour mark first time i played through Fire red

Beating the elite 4 even with your super starter is hard but the 3 legendary birds help out alot

i took a while talking to everyone in the game running through the seven islands and getting most off the 150 pokemon before i finally got mew

Unless, of course, you're talking about how long the battle lasted, in which case, you seriously need to work on your catching.

Thats what I did.

Had one charizard level 83-85 (cant remember because it was a long long time ago) and three legendary birds. :/ doesnt really take that long

I played for 35 hours without completing the Pokémon league so I never got the chance to get him. Then I restarted.

LeafGreen seemed alot harder than the other games.

August 16th, 2009, 10:33 AM
I don't remember it taking me that long but okay, I know I chose squirtle first and bust alot of ass and eventually got the birds and raped stuff and got Mewtwo, very fast maybe I should do a run through and see how long it really takes.

Divine~Deoxys
August 16th, 2009, 11:28 AM
I took about 90 hours to get past the E4, a further 10 to get past E4 and Champion, then 5 more to get to Mewtwo. Yet i take 60 hours and i've had platinum completed since 2 days after i got it.

Everyone's time's different

August 16th, 2009, 11:44 AM
Lol levels really don't matter too much
As long as the difference isn't too big
I beat my firered in under 20h and caught mewtwo with my highest level a 62 charizard
Also i beat red in silver with a team between lv 59-68 :P

at least lv.65?? wow, evertime i get to the pokemon league my pokemon are in their mid 45's, but never over lv 50, and i beat the elite 4 just fine

I agree with you on this. In every game I have played except Yellow I have beaten the E4 and Gary with pokemon ranging from 40-50 max. When I did have FR I managed to get to Mewtwo in like half a day and that was because I just sat there focused only on the game. Lol I didn't even stop to eat or anything. But now-a-days I tend to take ages completing my games as half the time I'm sitting there playing while chatting online and forget that I'm in the middle of a game. Like right now as I type this I'm playing Platinum.

It doesn't really take that long if you avoid unneeded battles and powerlevel one or two pokemon. You can probably do it in 4 or 5 if you really rush and never stop.

In fact, I'm going to see how long it takes to beat Fr/Lg right now, because I am incredibly bored.

August 26th, 2009, 03:18 PM
6-7 hours only training your starter, and yes, I have done it. If I can find my firered, I'll take a picture of the first E4 victory, at I think 7:49.

mattman324
August 26th, 2009, 03:44 PM
Bah! I fought every trainer in the game, caught 65 pokemon (Mewtwo being the 65th), had battle animations on, AND beat the elite four in 12 or so hours. Didn't really have to use any items either.

Of course, that's cause I was soloing with Blastoise, but whatever.

Oh and to whomever said "I got him in two hours.", you are a bad liar. THE (not tool assisted) SPEEDRUN (I.E. fastest time in world) got to the second elite four in 5:16.

And on my first time playing through and finishing this game (never had RBY, did have GSC and RSE), it took me 40 hours, WHILE training upwards of 8 or 9 different pokemon at once. Finished with a party of 54s and 55s.

I beat FireRed in like five and a half hours, power-leveling Charmander (into Charizard) and beat the Elite 4 & champion with a level 70-something Charizard. As aforementioned, it only took my like five and a half hours. I never could figure Mewtwo out though, not that I cared. I figured out the Sapphire & Ruby plate out, bred around 30 eevees and attended the sevii islands thing, before restarting at 7:46.

I only train one pokemon, my starter. By the time I get to E4 my starter is always around 80-90.

Wow, epic. I usually evolve before I get the PokeDex but never got up to 90 by E4.
But on a Power Run. (No Legendary birds/Aimless wandering around/Staying totally on task.)
About 9-10 Hours.
If I want to enjoy them game. Maybe 14-15ish.
