metang evolves to metagross at level 45. I think.

EDIT: I have a question. What does taunt do? anything?

Taunt forces the opponent to use only attack (non-defensive moves) for the duration of this turn and the next.

BTW, Hello! This is my first post ^_^

How do you use the calculator for cheat codes?

Simon
April 27th, 2004, 02:11 PM
Erm..don't double post?

Calculator
The Pokey Calc (PC) is a program that makes codes for any pokemon you want, any way you want it (well..it has limits). When you're on the PC site program, scroll down and you'll see stuff like Trainer Info, Pokemon Info. Don't worry about the stuff at the top that says Code Samples and stuff.

Just click the button for the cheat device you're using near the top. Scroll down, enter the information for the pokemon you want, and scroll back up, and click on the button that says 'Sample to Codes', and a list of codes will appear in the box on the left side of the screen.

For the pokemon info, you can make it shiny, make it any level you want, any move you want it to have, ribbons, happiness, what kind of ball you caught it with, where you caught it, it's nature, gender, pokerus, stats (although if you make it's total EV values over 510 when totaled up, you won't be able to transfer it to Coluseum), and all the other stuff. Codes are long though.

The AR for GBA is just...AR. The box it's in (for the latest version) has a picture of a wierd looking Groudon and Kyogre on one side and a wierd looking blonde kid on the other side. That's version 3.3. it comes with a disc to install a program on your computer so you can download codes onto your AR fom your comp, and it comes with a USB Cable to link up your AR with your PC.

Ok thank you very much :)
The only thing is that I don't need it any more. The berries I planted grw and I got six berries :D I was able to max out my feebas beauty and evolve it :) Then he won the Master beauty contest.
But thanks again I'll go get the scarf(if I don't already have it) and use it with another pokemon.

I keep getting bad eggs and when they hatch the screen turns black and I can't get my Deoxys.

Simon
April 29th, 2004, 02:17 PM
Hmmm...you shouldn't make Deoxys an egg. In the Calc, look for the option Egg Flag. It's somewhere under the shiny/pokerus stuff. If it's checked, the pokemon you want will first be an egg, if it is unchecked it'll just appear in your PC as a fully developed whatever based on what you entered in for it's stats.

I never knew bad eggs hatch...I thought they would never hatch.

I never knew bad eggs hatch...I thought they would never hatch.Well, I took off the egg flag, and it still gave me a bad egg and it kept giving me more.One more thing,you know when you get the codes,after you press"samples to codes",it says"It is making noises,it is about to hatch",and when it hatches, well you know.Oh,and the pokemon calc. dosen't work anymore.

Hey, sorry to bother ya, but I have a level 15 Wynaut, and I can't remember the name of the hold-item, that a pokemon holds so it doesn't evolve. Ie: so I don't have to click B every level up, it just doesn't evolve.
Whats that Item called again? And is it available in Sapphire?

Simon
May 1st, 2004, 09:57 AM
Everstone. You can get one in the Granite Cave or whatever the cave by Dewford is called. It's not one of those items that look like a Pokeball on the ground. It's a rock and you get it by pressing 'A' on the rock.

Get them using AR or GSSP. Or if you don't have one, use Zigzagoons's special ability (Pick-Up) and fight those Pokemon that holds rare cnadies and the Ziggys will just steal the candies for you...I forgot which pokemon has the cnaides though.

That won't matter if you know how to gain EVs. When you level up, you gain a base amount of stats, plus additional stats from EVs. If you use Rare Candies to level up you just gain the base amount of stats and only that. But that won't matter cause you can just go fight wild Pokemon and gain the EVs back, so in the end, if you compared 2 of the same pokemon at level 100 (one leveled up using Rare Candies and the second by training), with same personality, same IV/DVs, and with the same amount of EVs in each stat, they would both be the same and equal in power.

BTW: You shouldn't swear. You're not suppose to swear, including using other letters/symbols to bypass the censor.

if you say so.. are there people who say he's right?

cause is compared two of the same pokemon

1 leveled up using rare candy's

and 1 by hard training

and they where not equal

'Sigh' :sleeping: ...if you actually read my post, you would've read that more than just the level change stats. There are about 16 hidden values that change stats (which includes the EV/IV/DV values I mentioned in my post somewhere up there) and there's personality, which increases 1 stat by 10 percent and decreases another by 10 percent. You know what...just read the Advanced Trainer Guide for Training Pokemon : To Maximize the Strength of Your Team posted by frostweaver. It's one of the stickys.

surf down from mossdeep till you can go down no further andkeep surfing around that route (129 i think) then wailord should apear (about 1 out of 100 though)

No, their stats AREN'T the same, the one raised by rare candies is weaker then the one raised by battling.

Simon
May 2nd, 2004, 05:27 PM
Whatever...I'll just wait til frostweaver or some other Pokey pro comes along...but i'll just post this exerpt from weaver's guide

From frostweaver's guide To Maximixe the Strength of Your Team - 3) In Ruby/Sapphire, stats growth are calculated by EV. You get a hidden amount of EV for every opponent you battle. Every Pokemon gives a different amount of EV in different categories. For example, a Zigzagoon gives you EV +1 in speed, while a Spinda gives EV +1 in sp.att. 4 points of EV means +1 in stats for that category. However, you can only get up to 512 EV, meaning maximizing only 2 category out of HP, Attack, Defense, Sp.Attack, Sp.Def and Speed. So you must choose who to battle. Now that you're at lvl 100, even if you don't have any EV growth, you can still KO anyone. So choose which area of EV to improve on, and choose your opponents wisely. Train for hours until you get an effort ribbon (meaning that your EV has been maximized). Put it in the box like the classical GSC box trick to maximize stats. Voila...

Frostweaver
May 2nd, 2004, 05:51 PM
No, their stats AREN'T the same, the one raised by rare candies is weaker then the one raised by battling.
rare candy works like this... it gives you 1 lvl worth of normal exp and 0 EV. When you battle, EV will be earned automatically depending on which Pokemon you face. EV is a secret number that determines how much stats you get. A pokemon will grow according to a base stat, while gaining some additional stats depending on EV. Let's use an Alakazam for example.

For simplicity's sake, we'll have a lvl 1 Alakazam (impossible but it'll get the point across)

Lvl 1 Alakazam without EV has this stats assuming 31 IV in all categories
HP 12
Atk 6
Def 6
Sp.Atk 8
Sp.Def 7
Spd 7

Using rare candy to lvl up this Alakazam then... Meaning he will be gaining level without any EV at all. Alakazam will have...

HP 251
Atk 136
Def 126
Sp.Atk 306 (INSANE!!)
Sp.Def 206
Spd 276

However, one category of stats can have up to 252 EV, or a 63 point increase. You can manipulate what EV you get by choosing who you're going to battle. So if you use EV training method, and battles nothing but Numel (+1 sp.atk per Numel) and Zubat (+1 EV per Zubat), then you'll get an Alakazam with this...

HP 251
Atk 136
Def 126
Sp.Atk 369 (EVEN MORE INSANE!!)
Sp.Def 206
Spd 339

As you see the stats will change for a very significant amount with EV manipulation. If you "train normally", you'll be getting a random amount of EV therefore having varying stats as you go along. However, if you first use rare candy, then EV train and box trick it, then you can have a much easier time manipulating your EV (because at lvl 100, anything dies at one hit so you can choose your opponents). In the end, rare candy is a better training method as long as you also use the EV/Box trick with it. Hope this clear things up.

Frostweaver
May 4th, 2004, 06:57 PM
Gengar can learn will o wisp, toxic, destiny bond, nightshade, seismic toss, mean look, substitute and perish song as well in terms of indirect damage/annoying move. Such a wide movepool and high speed makes Gengar one of the most common used Pokemon out there (it can also be a special sweeper too learning psychic, giga drain and thunderbolt, and thanks for balance as it can't learn wave).

Note: there are physical gengars out there for the sole purpose of Blissey mauling, and a little surprise

Simon

Physical Gengars??? Does Gengar only have an ATk stat of only like 150? Mine is only like 167.

Does the Secret Trainer ID determine what kind of Trainer appears in yuor base on the other person's game file when you mix records???

If it is...how do you figure out what your Secret Trainer ID is?

What are dark types weak agaisnt?

Mr Cat Dog
May 8th, 2004, 12:06 AM
When you mix records, a trainer will appear in your secret base. The last number of the mixer's ID will determine the identity of the trainer. I can't remember but I think the list goes like this:

0 and 5 - Youngster
1 and 6 - Bug Catcher
2 and 7 - Can't remember...
3 and 8 - Gentlemen or Lady
4 and 9 - Cooltrainer (Male or Female)

I'm probably wrong since this is from Memory

Dark type attacks are weak against: Fighting, Dark and Steel
Dark Pokemon are weak against: Fighting and Bug

it depends on the time of the day you evolve Wurmple. At day time it's Beautifly, and at night time it's Dustox.

Mr Cat Dog
May 9th, 2004, 10:16 PM
Actually, it's completely random. I used to think that, but when I started a new game in Ruby, I got two Wurmples, and I trained them both to get a Dustox to trade to my brother. It was 9:00, and the first one evolved into Dustox (as expected), but the second one evolved into Beautifly. I then consulted some of the other guides om the web, and they confirmed that it was random.

~ MCD

Frostweaver
May 9th, 2004, 10:34 PM
Confirmed: random evolution... no certain pattern is found regarding evolution (stats, time, personality, item attachment) regarding wurmple. Mr Cat Dog is correct about wurmple's little mystery ^_^;

Frostweaver

Thunder has a BASE accuracy of 100% in the rain. Solarbeam can fire immediately in the sun. Time-related healing moves are 1/2 as effective in the rain, and twice the power in the sun. ^_^;

1. Does Rain Dance increase Hydrop Pump's accuracy?
2. What are Kingdra's weaknesses?

Frostweaver
May 14th, 2004, 08:57 PM
lol... Rain dance + Kingdra + hydro pump combo? ;p
I use that myself as one of my stapled Pokemon on all of my teams.

Kingdra is weak to NOTHING but dragon, and all dragon move users are weak to either ice or water pretty much. Hydro pump's accuracy was never that bad, and rain dance has no influence on accuracy issue for hydro. Kingdra is actually EASILY countered by anything with water absorb, or special staller. All kingdras have pure special attack, with ice beam and hydro/surf stapled on it. Milotic and Vaporeon are two exampes which screw Kingdra over completely. Kingdras sometimes have toxic to defeat these pokemon, but really Milotic (who almost always have toxic as well) will kill kingdra a lot faster.

Currently I gave my Kingdra HP Electric as well just to kill Vaporeons, and it is actually going very well. However, Gardevoir is still a big problem due to the high sp.def, and of course there's Regice and Blissey...

Kenta-kun

The Eon Ticket takes u to the island where either Latios or Latias is (depending on your version), so that u have a chance to catch it. You get the Eon ticket through a Nintendo event (there was one in an issue of Nintendo Power a little while back, too). It comes in the form of an e-card, which you need to swipe through an e-reader to get the Eon ticket in your game. The SS ticket is what lets you use the ship in the game

ya, soothe bell is a cool thing to do, the way i did it, was i just kept my zubat in front of my party from level five until it got raised to golbat (soothe bell all the way). then it already liked me a lot, so i gave it a bunch of pokeblocks and vitamins. and at the next level it evolved into crobat. fun.

well first of all, make sure if the clock problem in your game is fixed... (if it's a gba... ahh bad luck for you then)

Secondly, it takes up to 96 hours to grow o.o; have fun waiting?

Simon
May 18th, 2004, 09:27 PM
96 hours...96 hours of active playing or just 96 hours real-time???

I don't have the glitch yet, I just got my game 2 months ago. Hmm..maybe I do..I don't know..I don't understand what they mean by one year. One year of playing or just 1 year after the first release of R/S? I still don't think I have it since all my toher berries grow...except enigma, petaya..and mainly all the ones near the bottom of the list.

Frostweaver
May 18th, 2004, 10:07 PM
all of them requires 96 hours of time ^_^; it doesn't need active playing but just 96 hours later.

The 1 year thing is after you have your file for 1 year I believe... so that means 10 months from now the clock will start to suck up o.o; (I believe that's how it goes... i think... i forgot too much ingame stuff)

How do I get Counter to work? It won't work for me at all agaisnt Physical attacks. Dooes my Pokey have to be the second one to move or the first one? Last time I've used Counter was in R/B/Y and it never worked for me. I just want to know so I don't end up wasting 30 seconds to make a Blissey using the Calc.

My pokemon playing friends are gonna hate me. I've surprised that their 4.0 GPA, pre-calulas math courses minds in 8th grade haven't figured out I cheat yet...I hope none of them are on PC.

EDIT: By the way, which ability should I give my Blissey? Natural Cure or Serene Grace? And should I give it Leftys or a berry that increases DEF/SPDEF? If berry, which one?

Frostweaver
May 20th, 2004, 05:28 PM
Normally I'll be glad to help but it is against my morals to help out a blissey moveset

As for counter, it always strike last even slower than vital throw. The amount of hp damage done by your oppoennt's physical attack multipled by 2 will be the amount of hp damage counter does. However, counter fails unless the attack is normal/bug/ghost/fighting/ground/flying/steel/rock (hidden power regardless of types is treated as physical). It will also automatically miss against a ghost type.

Are you sure that you have the beauty stat raised? Feebas should evolve when it gains a level with a Beauty stat of 50.

Simon
May 31st, 2004, 08:06 PM
I don't know how you figure it out but the max for any of them is 255. So you could try fractions and divide up the section into different parts. 50 isn't much though, one good level 40-49 berry with high Beauty will be enough.

it doesn't really matter, special attacks are attacks that's based on "power" and normal attacks are phisical suck ash tackle. Only special attacks are effective against ghost pokemon.

for raising its HP, you should try to level it up. you can give it a maco brace but that'll lower its speed stat.

question a) psychic type, dragon type, electric type, fire type, ice type, water type, grass type and dark type attacks run off your special attack stats. The other runs off the other type.

GHOST IS PHYSICAL! regardless of how 'special' shadowball looks.

question b) gain more HP Evs then. Fight Whismur in Rusturf tunnel as only whismurs are there and it's gurantee to have +1 HP EV everytime

Pokemon will only not breed if the old guy says "The two Pokemon perfer to play with other Pokemon". If it says that, the Pokemon will never breed. Otherwise, they will breed. It will just take longer if what the old guy says isn't really good, even if it says The two don't llike each other, they'll still breed. It'll just take longer.

No, there is not such mail in ruby/sapphire. If you are interested in mails just ask XD

Use the super rod to fish for corpish in the ponds located in petaburg city.

Once again, use a super rod to catch a feebas. feebas is the exclusive ugly pokemon located in the river on route 119(below fortree). be pacient becuase it takes quite a while to find, only 6 random tiles contain them.

There is no such thing as a Wish Tag. I've typed that line so many times regarding your question Jirachi...STOP ASKING!!!

If your first Pokemon's EVs are maxed out, go to Slateport City and go to the Marketplace (not the PokeMart) and talk to the lady next to the guy selling Vitamins (those are things like Carbos, etc) and if your first Pokemon in your team has maxed out it's EVs, you'll get an Effort Ribbon.

If you have access to the Battlw Tower, beat any level 50 times in a row and the 3 Pokemon you used will get a Ribbon. Beat it 100 times in a row for a second ribbon. Doing those 2 things also earns you a trophy to put in yuor Secret Base.

I think you can also earn more Ribbons by competing in offical tournaments and playing Pokemon Colloseum.

Arena trap will fail due to Levitate (treat Arena trap as a ground ability). And trapinch won't survive... best choice possible is still Wobbuffet... auto-trap, and resistant to luster purge/mist ball.

If by edit you mean chnging how many battles you've won, Pokemon Contests, Battle Tower stuff, etc, you can either go on to GameFaqs.com and check the guides for codes (those guides are at the bottom of the FAQ secyion for Ruby/Sapphire [both have the same guides, no difference] and they have the codes) or you could use a Pokemon Calculator to get more specific results.

XYZMAN's Calculator can do that, There's a link to a site that lets you download it somewhere in my signature. It makes codes for GSA, PARv.3, VBA, CBA, and I think there's more but I can't remember.

Or if you don't want to cheat, spend about an houring winning through Battl Tower, beating your friends in battles/contests, making PokeBlocks, and umm..what else is there?

You have to raise it's beauty nearly to maximum. Once you reach that point and level up one more time it will become a Milotic. One problem, as you may know you can only feed a pokemon 12 times before it no longer wants to eat soo... Only feed it Blue & Indigo blocks to raise it's beauty. (dont froget some pokemon like certain colored blocks.. this goes by there personalities)

Like I said in the other post you have to feed it blue/indigo Poke blocks, now you can create some by mixing berries in a berry blender. I advise going to LilyCove and go into the Pokemon Contest building, there you can blend with 3 people, which mean's possible better berries. (smoother ones)

You can go to Pacidlog Town just by Surfing no diving whatsoever. Your problem is that you're too close to Sootopolis. Sootopolis is like on top of a mountain in a Gulf like area(Imagine the Gulf of Mexico). You're surfing around the inside of the gulf so you hit the rocks. And the gulf has more than one wall of rocks...I think. If you go from Mossdeep and go striagnt south going around a little rock every now and then, you should be able to reach the bottom of the map with no problem. Then just go west all the way to get to Pacidlog.

Yes, it's possible to make everyone be a fan of yours. Just capture at least 185 Pokemon (or was it 165? Something in the hundreds ending in 5 that much I know), win a couple of Link Battles (the more, the better) and I think that's it.You get like 3 of them just from beating the E4 I think. Just capture Pokemon and battle people for the rest.

All 386 Pokemon are in the game. Yes you can get them all. You can get them all either from cheating or trading to/from FRLG once it comes out. If you trade from FRLG, your PokeDex changes to incorporate the original Pokemon. If you cheat to get the old Pokemon, then you need to cheat to change your Dex.

The Pokdex doesn't change to incorporate them. There really is no point in trading originals to R/S, as their data doesn't add to your Pokdex. In FR/LG, you can't get anything above the original 151 without the National Dex, which you get after you defeat the Elite 4. There is no National Dex in R/S, therefore, the data for any Pokmon not included in the R/S games won't be recorded

Yeah, this is true. I've managed to transfer all my Pokemon from Colosseum to Sapphire (several dozen Zigzagoon later :-s), and only 7 of those updated my Pokedex, the rest did not.

So yeah, to get a full 386 Pokedex, you'll need the National Pokedex from FR/LG. Happy waiting peeps :-)

The Pokdex doesn't change to incorporate them. There really is no point in trading originals to R/S, as their data doesn't add to your Pokdex. In FR/LG, you can't get anything above the original 151 without the National Dex, which you get after you defeat the Elite 4. There is no National Dex in R/S, therefore, the data for any Pokmon not included in the R/S games won't be recorded

i thought as soon as you trade a fr/lg pokemon to r/s the pokedex updates itself?

Kenta-kun
June 30th, 2004, 05:17 PM
Nope. I thought that too, but, as stated above, any Pokmon not originally listed in the Hoenn dex won't be added

You get Surf after defeating your Dad (you can battle him anytime you want after earning 4 badges [or was it 5?]) in Petalburg. After defeating him, he'll mention something about Wally's UNcle wanting to thank/see you. From the gym, go to the left to find Uncle's house. Talk to him to get Surf.

all right thanks... while your at it, i have two more questions

how do you get to sootopolis city and ever grande city when theres something thats blocking it?

and where do you find the red orb? i know team aqua has it ( since i have sapphire ) but question is, where are they to get the red orb back?

thanks a lot again

Simon
July 2nd, 2004, 01:53 PM
You get the Red Orb back from Team MA after you defeat/capture Kyogre/Groudon. Simply go to the top of Mt. Pyre where they first stole the orb and the Leader will be there. Talk to him for the Orb.

There are two parts to Ever Grande. The first part just has a Pokemon Center. To reach it, you need Hm Waterfall which is in the Cave of Origin (you can't miss it if you picked up every item you saw and it's right in your path). The second part is where the ELite Four is. You need to traverse Victory Road to reach them. You need Strength, Rock Smash, Waterfall, and Flash is optional, but recommended.

Sootopolis City can be reached by use HM Dive, which is given to you by Steven in Mossdeep City. Steven will be in his house where he lives on Mossdeep. Just go to every house to the northwest or the Pokemon Center since I forgot the exact house. Sootopolis is at the top of a mountain, so go around near the front base of the mountain where there is dive-able water (it'll be dark blue) and Dive underwater. Then just enter the cave and press "A" or "B" in the brighter patches of water while in the cave to re-surface in the water area of the city. Sootopolis also holds the Cave of Origin and you can't do anything else here until you go through the Cave.

To the Cave of Origin. Which if I didn't go through there, no access to the gym leader.

Where do you get the master ball too? i'm planning to get Kyogre. or Groudon on which is available on those two.

I am a very lazy person, so I am sorry if someone has already posted on this topic. I looked on serebii.net, but didn't find satisfactory answers. I would like a list of ALL of the ribbons, not just the ones you can get ingame, and how to get them. Serebii.net has a list of all of them, but as it says a ribbon I have acquired from Colosseum is unobtainable, I don't trust it very much. Several of the are from tournaments, and I wondered how I could enroll in those.

Lol, you need to go to seafloar carven first. You have to dive to get there. It's a cave.

The masterball is at the Team Aqua/magma hideout.
If the door is sealed, then you missed your chance.
The second way to get a masterball is match all numbers at the lilycove department store lottery.

Timbjerr
July 2nd, 2004, 07:04 PM
and the Master Ball was in Team A/M's hideout just off the coast of LilyCove City. If you're already trying to get to Sootopolis City, then chances are, the cave is sealed and you blew your chances at a Master Ball.

But fear not, you can also get one for winning the lottery in the Lilycove PokMart.

I found Kyogre very easy to catch without a Master Ball... took me a mere 2 Ultra Balls. Helps to have a squad in the mid 40's for easy capture. Try to avoid picking on the water weakness (although if it uses Calm Mind enough, that may be your only way to bring it's health down). Once in the red, just keep throwing those Ultra Balls, it's not actually that bad. Have something in your squad that can resist Ice and Water (a good Water type works for both, I used my Lombre (bad move with the Ice, I know) ) and watch out for Body Slam's paralysis. Apart from that, it should be a breeze...

If you want the Master Ball, however, you find it in Team Aqua's base. There's an area with 4 item balls on the ground.. one of those is a Nugget, one is the Master Ball, and the other 2 are L30 Electrodes. If you're past that and have missed the Master Ball, then you've got no chance of getting it unless you reset and start again, or win the Lotto at Lilycove. Odds of matching all 5 numbers are 1 in 100,000, divided by the different ID numbers in your pokemon squad. Good luck :-)

Eep... better stock up for when I get Ruby... I've been having the weirdest luck when it comes to Pokemon catching lately... I caught Entei on Colosseum with a mere Pokeball - at yellow health levels, no less! - I threw only 2 Ultra Balls to bag Rayquaza, and just today, I bumped into Latias (and that was where I used my Master Ball). I spent 2 hours looking for Latias and then nothing, and then just as I was on my way to fish for a Feebas, passing through some grass, and there she was!

Sorry to go off topic, just had to mention it... anyway, looks like I got my work cut out for Groudon. Might just use my Master Ball for Groudon then, since I have Rayquaza and Latias on my Sapphire cart now, and once I get my friends EON ticket I'm off to get Latios :-)

Seafloor Cavern is underwater on Route something. It's one of the watery Routes off to the side of the map. If you go from Mossdeep and head South a little until there are some rocks, then go west until the rocks are clear, then you should start seeing diveable water. Dive and if the background/seafloor looks deep (like you can't see the bottom, but instead it shows you darkness on the ground), then you are on the right path. Just follow that south until you find a cave.

Golden Groudon
July 3rd, 2004, 04:19 PM
Go south of mossdeep you'll see dark places to dive. oh, and it maybe a long way to the cave.

*twitch* How dull can you get...?

If you paid any attention to the storyline, you'll see that Team Aqua/Magama stole a submarine to find the Seafloor Cavern. And seeing as how you found the submarine parked in a cave, wouldn't see assume that is where the Cavern is??? Ever try going into the cave where the submarine is and then rising to the surface while still inside???

Two questions lightly related, ok, this is driving me nuts, I only need 14 more pokemon, two of wich are azurill and azumarill. Question one is, do you evolve marill into azumarill through frendship? Second question is how do you get Azurill? I thought it was through hatching an egg, but that didn't work. Please help!

And try time balls for groundon, (you should be able to get them in rustboro's pokemart) I caught rayquaza in one after killing it and restarting about 10 times. Stupid outrage kept confusing him. Then he'd be at 1 health thanks to false swipes, and you can figure out the rest of the tale I'm sure.

Toothache
July 4th, 2004, 12:50 PM
Azumarill evolves from Marill at L18, it's the Azurill that evolves from Friendship :-) Breeding an Azurill involves the Marill/Azumarill parent holding the Sea Incense item, otherwise you just get a Marill instead. Same deal with a Wobbuffet, they need to be holding the Lax Incense to get a Wynaut, otherwise the baby is another Wobbuffet

and someone told me to go to Sootopolis and dive out of there and head west. What is the right direction, please i'm confused.

:\

Toothache
July 4th, 2004, 02:16 PM
Well, I find it's nearer to Pacifidlog, but you can approach it from either direction... from Pacifidlog, head east, near the top of the route near the rocks, until you find a gap going up and west, this will snake back, and eventually bring you to land. Go through the passage, and you will find yourself at the Sky Pillar... hope you brought your Mach Bike, you'll need it to get to Rayquaza...

Timbjerr
July 4th, 2004, 02:16 PM
To get to the Sky Pillar, you must go to Pacifidlog town and surf est just a little ways, or you can go to Sootopolis city and surf south then west...when you think about it geographically, you'll end up there if you go to Ever Grande and surf straight west.

The fastest way is to surf east from Pacifidlog Town until you see an opening in the rocks to the north. Of course, in order for Sky Pillar to appear, you have to have beat the Elite 4 once.

July 4th, 2004, 08:17 PM
You know.... theres this water that's annoying that purposely pushes you to that way <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

and no way you can get to that given way because of that. I have to be on the upper right? and head east of pacifidlog. Right, well let's see I always get carried away and instead I always get passed through it, it's neither there or gone.

P.S. is that where the two swimmers are standing together? and a swimmer that goes up and down

Simon
July 4th, 2004, 10:15 PM
I hope you know the difference between left and right. To the LEFT of Pacidlog, is the fast water current that leads to the Regis Caverns. To the RIGHT, is where you want to go to get to Sky Pillar. Find the opening in the rocks and whatever. And read the FAQ. It tells you how to get to Rayza.

Either you're a 5 year old or a very, extremely dull person that doesn't know left and right, east and west, up and down, and north and south.

Hi! Does anybody have any suggestions as to what psychic pokemon I could use for Sapphire?

I've just started all over again (actually, just started a new save file), and so I don't want to use the same pokemon that I used in my other game (Blaziken, Hariyama, Gardevoir, Kyogre, Tropius and Manectric)... I was thinking maybe a Spoink/Grumpig or a Baltoy/Claydol, as I cannot get my Kadabra evolve (computer, no trading). Any suggestions? What's Starmie like in Sapphire?

Oh, and has anybody got any suggestions as to what electric pokemon I can use? I've narrowed it down to either Magenmite/Magneton or Voltorb/Electrode... Have I confused anybody yet? LOL. :D

I'd really appreciate it if I got some feedback.
Ciao!

Hiroshi Sotomura
July 5th, 2004, 04:05 AM
That question isn't simple... it's worthy of a thread if it's welcome for feedback and teamset strategies.

I don't know... Starmie is a good choice if you're up for giving it a lot of TMs.

Before you evolve a Staryu, go and train it to level 46. Then, it should learn enough moves. Then, evolve it, and if you want Confuse Ray, get a Heart Scale and give it to the Move Tutor. That's all the learned moves you're missing. Just Confuse Ray! (That is, if you want it.)

There's some other Pokmon, if you're willing to go get a Claydol...

Master_Zangoose
July 5th, 2004, 07:27 AM
For starters, parson my spelling, I just woke up.

For the phycics, their abilites are,
for grumpig: own tempo, prevents confusion
starmie: Illuminate, encounter rate increases (I'm not sure what that means, I think it means with wild pokemon)
claydol: Levitate, not hit by ground attaks
Their abilities may or may not vary, I'm just saying what I know they can have.

For the electric one I would go with mageton, it's part steel, wich is it's main attraction, so it has a good defense and a decent attack, on the other hand electrode is very fast. And it will get stuff like selfdestruct.

As for abilities, magneton will know either sturdy, or magnet pull. Sturdy negates 1-hit ko attacks, magnet pull prevents switching in battle. Electron will know soundproof, I'm not sure if there are any other abilities he might have instead. But sound proof avoids sound proof moves, in other words, things like growl and supersonic don't affect it.

It's up to you. I usually go with wichever pokemon I like best. I don't worry about the strongest, maybe you do, but I hope I helped even a littel.

Simon
July 5th, 2004, 11:25 AM
You get them by winning Master Rank contests with more than 5 hearts in the scores. After the contest, the artist will show you a painting he made and ask you if he should put it in the museum.

I think you might also have to talk to the artist in side the museum near the entrance inside and the art buyer outside to make it work. Not sure.

I suggest making pokeblocks with kelpsy berries, LOTS and LOTS of kelpsy berries. Hondews should be good too. Make them at lilycove in the contest hall where there are three peoble around that grey machine. And when it's beauty is maxed out talk to the head of the pokemon fan club in slateport. He will give you a blue scarf. Equip your pokemon with it to add an extra boost to it's beauty in contests.

I was just wandering if you can trade between american verson of Ruby/Sapphire with an English version. Because my american version of Ruby doesn't trade with my English PAL region colosseum. I'm not sure if this applies with Ruby/sapphire though. I'm about to go feebas hunting and I don't want to spend all that time trying to catch it, raise it etc realising it is stuck on my American Ruby cart. So I though I would buy a PAL version of Sapphire and maybe I could trade between the two regions would this work? Thanks

Another question. If you use gameshark to catch a pokemon( make it appear) can it be detected? Is it any different from the same pokemon cought regularly? the code for deoxys dosn't let him appear on colloseum so that leads me to believe that any other pokemon got by that same code base would be different and may be detectable. any other pokemon appears on colloseum.

Simon
July 11th, 2004, 12:07 PM
Deoxys and Mew cannot be uploaded into Colosseum because NoA made Colosseum so that it can detect Deoxys and Mew and block it from being uploaded. You can only upload a Deoxys that was properly obtained through FRLG. IF you hack any other Pokemon, it should be fine. However, if you use a Pokemon Calculator/Maker, make sure the EVs you gave it do not go over the combined total of 510 or the game will know that Pokemon was hacked and not upload it.

I don't think it's hidden tiles will change until you mix records. It's a random tile as you know. Save for each tile and then fish, if it's right you can always go back.

Abusoru
July 16th, 2004, 07:32 AM
Yes I know the tiles are random. What happens if I fish the correct tile and I don't hook it or if I hook it and accidently kill it? Does its location change? Is that tile still correct and I can try again to catch it? Anyone know?

Simon
July 16th, 2004, 02:07 PM
The Beefas will stay in the same tile. There are 6 tiles they will appear in. If you kill one, it will still appear in that tile, although you could try to try the other 5 tiles as well. But why bother looking for another tile when you're sitting right on top of one?

Toothache
July 16th, 2004, 02:11 PM
Yeah, once you found a Feebas tile, just keep fishing in that one tile. They have fairly high frequency (around 50-60% of encounters) so you can always try again to find them.

Speaking of which, I need to get a Feebas. I would do it now, but I'm out of batteries :-(

Also when you find feebas try to catch a bunch so you have male, female, and feebas that like the blue poke blocks or else you'll have a hard time trying to get a Milotic. Also I noticed that the space you fish is in front of you, not the space you are sitting on. If that was the case, then if you fished on land you'd be fishing in the ground. w00t diglett!
