On Route 119 (the route with the weather institute). Start from the weather institute, cross the bridge to the right, and surf down until you find it.

You can also trade Green Shards to a man in a house in the middle of the ocean by Mossdeep for a Leaf stone. 2 Green shards are found through Diving both hidden. All others can be stolen from wild Relicanth.

Help!!

I'm having trouble getting a Shedinja. I keep evolving Nincada into Ninjask but Shedinja doesn't appear in the spear slots.

What am I doing wrong?

I'm pretty sure you also have to have a spare Poke Ball. So, if you don't, that's probably the problem.

Alright..
You need to have only one spare slot. As soon as Nincada evolves into Ninjask, Shedinja should appear in the 6th slot..

Maybe do what a lot of people do, train Nincada to lvl 19, then use a Rare Candy to elevate it to level 20.
Who knows, might work better for you.

Hi...

If my Gengar were to use mean look, and then it fainted from the other pokemon's attack, would the other pokemon still be stuck in battle or would the mean look effect be broken?

Also does baton pass work when you've been mean-looked?

Mean Look works as long as the Pokemon who used it is still in battle. If you used Mean Look and your Pokemon fainted, the effects of Mean Look would go away.

The opponent can use Baton Pass when Mean Looked. In addition, if you use Baton Pass while the opponent is Mean Looked, the opponent still can't switch out.

Thanks that helps a lot

I just have one more question though... I recently decided to re-ev train my gardevoir so I got a ton of the ev-lowering berries. I used them on gardevoir to reduce defense, HP, and attack until it told me that it would have no effect. So I assumed that meant those evs were empty.

Then, I went to battle frontier and bought a bunch of vitamins for special attack and speed, but I could only use two or three of each. It seemed to take quite a few berries before it told me it would have no effect, yet I could only use a couple more vitamins which give as many evs as the berries take away...so is there some sort of vitamin limit or...?

The vitamins add 10 EVs to a stat as long as the EVs in those stats are less than 100 and the grand total of EVs is liess than 510.

Argh, if those evs were under 100, then it's a good thing I decided to re-ev-train...>_<

Just wanted to mention that the max you can increase any one stat is 255, although you should only go 252 since points have to be divisible by four and you place those other 3 points elsewhere.

While we are on the subject of EVs, I also want to mention that in Emerald the berries 21-26 will reduce the EVs of a stat by 10, allowing you to remove unwanted EVs, if needed. Those berries will also increase the Happiness of a Pokemon.

You need to have the data of a certain number of Pokemon in your Pokedex - that means you need to catch them, not just see them. I'm not sure how much it is, 100 something.

Then you need to talk to Prof. Oak, and he'll give you the National Pokedex. Now you need a Rainbow Pass, I think you talk to Celio for that.

The Rainbow Pass will let you sail to all 7 islands from Vermillio City.

Hello! I have a question about catching Rayquaza in Pokemon Ruby. I'm looking to restart the game until he's shiny, but I don't know when his personality and shiny is determined. I'm saved three rooms away. Is it determined from the start of the game, or when you enter the room he's in, or when you battle him?

Also, can you EV train Rayquaza?

Shiny status and nature are determined when you interact with it, so technically, it would be during the battle. Any and all Pokemon can be EV trained.

Yeah. Save right next to him, press A, see if it's shiny and if not soft reset. Then do it 8191 more times and you should get a Shiny Raquaza...maybe.

Apparently... there is no point, really - from what I've heard people say, there is no pattern... =/ It hides no secret places or events or the such though, that I'm sure of though.

Try the Emulation section for information on Rom Hacks.
As for the point of Pattern Bush, it's because Heracross is there. Who DOESN'T like Heracross?! Lol. There's no point, really, but it's just there to take up space, i guess.

NOTHING.

But Heracross. So it's something.

And a reference to crop circles.

Every game needs that, right?
