Mirage Island

Mirage Island is an Island found on Route 130, and appears when certain conditions are met…

Each time you catch or obtain a Pokémon, it's assigned a hidden "number". Let's say your Ralts has the number 1425.

Every day a random "number" is picked.

If the number of any of your Pokémon matches the chosen one of the day, Mirage Island appears. Talking to the old man will let you know if one of your party Pokémon is the right number. So, you need to bring all your Pokémon to him each day.

So, when the number 1425 is the number of the day, and you take your Ralts to him, he'll be able to see it. There's no way to know the actual number of the day nor your Pokémon's. You just have to check back with him everyday, bringing all your Pokémon to him.


Groudon and Kyogre

Throughout Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire, you will occasionally have encounters with Team Magma and Aqua. In Pokemon Ruby, you will be facing Team Magma who is trying to revive Groudon and in Sapphire, you'll be facing Team Aqua who is searching for Kyogre.

Once either Kyogre or Groudon has been revived from stone, you can capture them in the Cave of Origin, which is in Sootopolis City. It's impossible to get lost in the cave. As there is only one path.

Save before battling it as you only get one shot at this. Just use a powerful Pokemon with False Swipe that can resist Kyogre/Groudon's attacks. Then toss balls at it when it's weak.


The Regis

The Pokémon you need are:

Relicanth and a Wailord.

Pokémon with :
Surf
Dive
Dig
Fly

Fly to Pacifidlog.

Go left and Surf, stay down near the bottom but not all the way. Keep going until you see a dark spot in the water. Go to that dark spot and use Dive, now you are under the water inside a room. Exit out of the room though the door. Now you’re in a tunnel. Keep going until you see a big rock. Go to the end of the tunnel and on the rock you will see writing on the rock. Use Dive here. Now you’re in a room with 10 stones it's just ABC... and so on. The wall at the end of the room it tells you to use Dig there. Now a door is there go in and you will see 7 stones the last one is the important one. It says first comes Relicanth last comes Wailord. What it means is put Relicanth first in your party and Wailord last when you enter the room and read the last stone. Then you hear three doors open and those are the three doors at the ruins were you can find Regice, Regirock and Registeel.


Regice

Fly to Dewford town and then go north and stay to the left. Keep going until you see a big island. Land on the island to the left, go past the island and go up until you see another island (It’s the island in the middle of 6 rocks). Regice is inside, Enter and press “A” on the wall.
”Stop and wait. Wait for time to pass twice” is what it says.
What it means is wait 2 minutes and the door will open.
Now you may enter and catch Regice.


Regirock

You will need a Pokémon with Strength.
Item you need: Go-Goggles (you get them after you beat the 4th gym)
First you fly to Mauville city then, go north to Route 111 and Desert Ruins (you need a Pokémon with Rock Smash to get there). Keep going until you see the desert. Then go right and down until you see the Ruins. Go in and heard towards the wall. The wall says:
”Right, right, down, down, then use Strength.”
What it means is from the wall press right right down down and have your Pokémon use Strength.


Registeel

You will need a Pokémon with Fly.

First Fly to Lilycove city then go west (left) until you go past route 121 and keep going until you get to route 120. Continue until you see stairs. Go up the stairs and keep proceeding up them until you see a cave. This is the Ancient tomb. Go in and press a next to the wall with the text, this is what the wall says:

“With new time, hope and love, aim to the sky in the middle.”
It means to go to the middle of the room and use Fly.


Latias/Latios

Shuko's (not really; I read it somewhere, but can't remember where) Method of Catching Latios/Latias

Requirements:
-Acro Bike
-At least 1 Defeat of the Elite 4
-At least 1 Max Repel
-Something hard and heavy that you can place on a single button of your GameBoy:P

Method:
Here's what you do. After you've defeated the E4, go to any patch of grass (really, it doesn't matter where) in Hoenn and use your Max Repel. Equip your Acro Bike. Then, place your heavy object on your Game Boy in such a way that it holds down only the B button. Watch the screen and make sure that your character is bunny hopping, but is remaining in the same spot. He is? Great. Now leave your Game Boy alone for an hour or two. No, I'm not kidding. Go away for a good long while, and then come back. Don't bother watching, 'cause this method usually takes time to work. Anyway, when you come back, you (Should) have run into Latios/Latias.

Here's why it works:
Latias/Latios works in much the same way that the Legendary dogs did in G/S/C. He/She changes regions frequently, and will do so even if you stay in one region all the time. This method works on the theory that, if you wait in one region long enough, he/she'll eventually meander into it, and then you'll encounter the wily Pokemon. The Max Repel will keep other Pokemon away from you, and the bunny hopping simulates walking through the grass without wasting steps and exhausting your Max Repel.

So now you should have run into the elusive Latios/Latias. What happens next is up to you. I always used a master ball, because I hate chasing them around. But if you want to do it the hard way, just remember that once you've run into Latios/Latias, you can track him/her but everytime you go to a different location the location for Lati@s will change - look at the area page for that Pokemon in your 'Dex. It'll show the current location of him/her. Of course, this is provided you don't make him/her faint. That's it, people. Happy hunting!


Rayquaza

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE MACH BIKE WITH YOU

Rayquaza is atop Sky Pillar, which you cannot ascend until you beat the Elite Four. From Pacfidlog Town, go east and there will be an opening near the top of the rock walls. It's not that far away from the town and should take less than 20 seconds of traveling (assuming you don't run into any wild Pokemon). The new path should, from the opening in the rocks, go west then north to a cave. If it doesn't, you're in the wrong place.

Get through the cave (it's easy) to reach the tower itself. On the floors, there will be cracks on the tiles. if you step on them, you will fall down to the next floor. This is where you need the Mach Bike. Pick up some speed in the uncracked tiles and run right through the cracks. Avoid bumping into any walls or rocks as you will fall down if you bump into one by a crack. Save often so you don't have to keep redoing this. On the final floor, you'll notice a dead end at the end of the both with cracks. There'll be cracks ini the middle of the dead end and to the left and right. Run your bike to the ones in the middle and stop it there and fall through on purpose to reach a new path. Then just continue until you reach the top of the tower where Rayquaza will be.

WHAT YOU NEED TO CATCH RAYQUAZA
1.Shedinja

Catching it is easy, the hard part is getting there. I suggest you practice your mach bike on cycling road before you head to sky tower.

With this Shedinja moveset...

Protect
False Swipe
Swords Dance
Shadow Ball

It is SIMPLE AND EASY, first use Shadow Ball, if it uses Fly use Protect, if it uses any other move, it won't effect you. The only thing in your way is it’s Rest!

Once it is down to one HP (Shadow Ball + False swipe) chuck Ultra Balls!

Note: Evolve Nincada at lvl 25, and it'll learn false swipe. Evolve Nincada then, and the Shedinja will carry over the Nincada moveset so it'll have false swipe. It can also pick up Swords dance from Ninjask =)


Eon Ticket and Southern Island

Both Lati@s can be captured in one game, but you need the Eon Ticket which was given out by Nintendo some time ago. Just use and E-reader to scan the Eon Ticket and you can take a boat to the island where either Latias or Latios (depending on your version, it'll be the other Lati@s you don't have, assuming you've already captured the one running around the place) will be. Once there, examine an egg/rock there and the Lati@s will appear. Repeat the strategy listed in the Capturing Latios or Latias guide to catch them again on Southern Island.


Jirachi

Jirachi can only be obtained through the use of the bonus disc that comes with Pokemon Colosseum when you pre-order it or through cheating. You can also buy the disc from some stores or a friend. Then just transfer the Jirachi to your game.


Deoxys and Its 3 Forms

Deoxys is a genderless, Psychic type Pokemon that cannot breed and has 3 different forms(Offensive, Defensive, and Balanced) which will be explained later on. Right now in the U.S.A., Deoxys can only be obtained through using a cheating device. Until Pokemon versions FireRed(FR) and LeafGreen(LG) is released in America (or if NoA holds a special event before the release), that is the ONLY way to obtain Deoxys. Anything you heard, ranging from capturing all 200 Pokemon, getting 5 Trainer Stars, to flying to the moon, is a rumor and a lie.

In FR/LG, you can get Deoxys through the use of an Aurora Ticket to reach Island 9, which is what people are calling the island until an English name is given. The Aurora Ticket was given out through an Nintendo event, which will probably also take place in America once Fr/LG is released. You can still also just use cheats to get Deoxys like most people.

For those of you who own Deoxys in Ruby/Sapphire, you might've noticed you can only have the R/S form (Balanced) of Deoxys and not the other 2 forms. That is because Deoxys' looks, icons, and stats change depending on which version it is in. So if you traded the Deoxys you own in R/S to a FR/LG cartridge, it would change forms depending on which version it is traded into. Deoxys has more offensive stats in FR and more defensive stats in LG. It's stats are more balanced in R/S.

Here is Deoxys' base stats for all three forms. I ahve also listed for each stat's maximum with a personality, in order from left to right, that decreases it by 10%, does nothing to it, and increases it by 10%.

Ruby/Sapphire Base Stats
HP: 50(304, 304, 304)
Attack: 150(359, 399, 438)
Defense: 50(179, 199, 218
Speed: 150(359, 399, 438)
Special Attack: 150(359, 399, 438)
Special Defense: 50(179, 199, 218

Fire Red Base Stats
HP: 50(304, 304, 304)
Attack: 180(413, 459, 504)
Def: 20(129, 135, 152)
Speed: 150(359, 399, 438)
Special Attack: 180(413, 459, 504)
Special Defense: 20(129, 135, 152)

Leaf Green Base Stats
HP: 50(304, 304, 304)
Attack: 70(215, 239, 252)
Defense: 160(377, 419, 460)
Speed: 90(251, 279, 306)
Special Attack: 70(215, 239, 252)
Special Defense: 160(377, 419, 460)

Just like how Deoxys' stats and looks change from version to version, what it can learn also changes. But it's ability, Pressure, stays the same throughout all of it's forms. Here is what it learns from leveling up, using TMs/HMs (these are from RS as I am not sure what the TMs/HMs in FR/LG are), and through the use of the Move Tutor from FRLG.

Catching Feebas and Milotic

I highly recommend catching Feebas for these three reasons -

1) To complete the pokedex
2) For some bragging rights
3) To obtain a Milotic which is has great Special Attack and Special Defense, along with a great move pool.

What You Will Need

1) old/good/super rod [old is preferred as Feebas can be caught with it, but you don't have to waste time with other pokemon besides Magikarp and a few Tentacool. It can be obtained by a fisher in Dewford town. He stands near to the gym]
2) approximately 5 pokeballs [higher grades are not nessary for such a weak pokemon] as you will want to catch a few feebas.
3) a pokemon that knows surf [HM slave ^_^]
4) a pokemon that knows fly [not a must but after sitting in that water for so long i would think u would want to get out of there as quickly as possible]

Feebas is a rare little fish pokemon. How rare you ask??
Well let me see. It is obtainable in 6 tiles [sections of surfing water] out of approximately 400 tiles of surfing water on route 119.
Now thats something isn't it??
The feebas tiles are random and if you change the "Popular Phrase" in Dewford town the tile positions are RANDOMLY RESET[ie you can't take someone else's 'popular phrase' and try fishing where they got their feebas. It won't work.]

Now that you have what u need head up to the base of route 119. Do this by flying/walking to mauville and then surfing across the narrow stripe of water right of the gym.
Now you will be on route 119. This is a very long route [unfortunately] packed with sections of water [potential feebas grounds] along its length. I recommend you start form the first pond you come across. Start form one corner and work your way up. Fishing in each tile you move into.I recommend fishing 3 - 5 times in one tile as any less may allow our fishy friend to slip through and any more would be overkill.
Now all this sucks i must admit, but when u do find the feebas tile you will be pleasently surprised to find that they will appear with a 60-80% probability. Which is, in my opinion, fairly sweet.

Evolving Feebas

Well now that you have feebas you must be wondering - "I hate you Ice Demon. This thing is ugly!!"
Thats why we need to evolve it.

To evolve feebas you need to get its beauty rating to 170. To do this feed feebas blue/indigo pokeblocks. However you will only be able to feed Feebas 12 pokeblocks thats why these factors below are important -

1) personality of your feebas - The way a feebas responds to a pokeblock is determined by their personality. It is recommended that you use either one of these personalities :Rash, Quiet, Modest[the best as it increases SpAtt and decreases Attack,which is an important quality for all milotic],and Mild. If you get a feebas with an Impish, Careful or Adamant[like anyone will want those personalities XD]don't bother.They hate dry blocks [which blue and indigo are] and so will require high grade berries to make their pokeblocks which is difficult.

2) The grade of pokeblock you use - level 11 blocks can be obtained from : Weaper, Lum, Oran, Chesto and Bluk berries [these are the lowest grades]
level 23 blocks can be obtained from :Wiki, Kelpsy, Hondew and Cornn berries [these are the best type of berries as they are more effective than lvl 11 berries but are easier to obtain than lvl 45 berries
level 45 blocks can be obtained from : Pamtre berries [the highest grade berry]


Berry types A and B can be found throughout Hoenn. However a popular destionation for most trainers is the "berry masters house"
To get there surf down from mount Pyre and you will be in route 23. Follow the route and you should eventually reach the berry masters house. Or you can surf right from mauville but instead of walking up through route 119 go straight and you will reach his house.
The berry master gives you berries. To obtain the berry u want save before you talk to him. Keep restarting and talking to him until you get the berries you want.


PS to get pokeblocks you need a pokeblock case which can be obtained from a little girl in Slateport City in the Contest Center there.
To blend berries go to anyone of the Contest centers and blend with the old man on the side of the screen.

Feed Feebas the 12 pokeblocks and lvl him up. You should now be a a proud owner of a milotic.
Come post your milotic movesets at the GB Strategy Section and get any help with Egg moves at the Breeders corner.


Two New Unowns

There are two new Unowns in Ruby and Sapphire, ! and ?.

They cannot be obtained unless you trade with Fire Red or Leaf Green, like all of the other Unowns.
