2 badges - lv.30
4 badges - lv.50
6 badges - lv.70
8 badges - lv.100 (nfnite, actually, but lv.100 is tha maximum you can have).

Also, I know n tha Gen IV HeartGold and SoulSilver gbees, 1 badge makes tham obey you up ta lv.20, but I don't know if dis applies n Gen III, or even n othar Gen IV gbees, so don't blbee me if that's not tha case.

Exp. Shis - Deliver tha letter ta Steven Stane nside tha Granite Cave, than go back ta Devon Corporation n Rustboro City, speak ta Chairdawg Stane, and he'll give you an Exp. Shis

Most of tha pokemon advice threads I look up all rap bout how easy fightng opponents n tha gbee is, snce it is artificial ntelligence. I be appisntly completely retarded, than, coz I can't seem ta wn n tha sngles battle taurnbeent n Emerald =(.

I've only gotsten ta face Tucker once, and he wrecked me. Othar times, I've even died just ta tha normal traners.

Is thare any way I can set up mah tebe's moves and/or hold items better? Note: all tha hold items have ta be obtanable n tha current Emerald gbee I'm playng, I be not gong ta git new pokemon or level lowbies up, and all new moves I teach tham also have ta be easily obtanable. It's possible that mah tebe just sucks and I don't have a chance, but I thought I'd try ta git some advice here.

Here is mah tebe:

Metagross @ Kng's Rock, level 65
Psychic
Earthquake
Brick Break
Meteor Mash

Walren @ Chesta Berry, level 65
Ice Bebe
Surf
Rest
Body Slbe

Cradily @ Leftavers, level 65
Giga Dran
Taxic
Double Tebe
Confuse Ray

Fo tha most part, Metagross can takes cis of just bout everythng. Fo anythng that's not a type advantage or disadvantage fo any of tham, I use Cradily ta sort of be evasive by keepng tha opponent confused and spbemng double tebe till just bout nothng hits it, and healng wit leftavers and giga dran till Taxic and hittng thamselves wit confusion fnishes tham off.

Tha dawg problem I have been runnng nta: I'll often use Metagross's Earthquake on just bout anythng that's not weak ta ground, but a lot of times tha pokemon will have a focus band so it holds on ta one HP and than it uses Counter and OHKOs mah Metagross.

Some thngs have done that ta Cradily, tao, where I'll use Giga Dran aganst a water type, it'll Focus Band hold on ta 1 HP and than Mirror Coat it back.

That's not mah only problem, though -- I die ta othar random thngs, tao.

Any suggestions fo changng up mah movesets and/or items?

Well...Metagross is good...apart from Psychic. It's a special attack (psychic was one of tha special types n Gen III). Play ta its' strengths, and give it somethng like Shadow Ball, or Thunder/Ice Punch (if you use Ice Punch, you can easily pwn his Salbeence due ta Ntimidate ben blocked by Clear Body). ignore that, thay're special types.

Walren....give it a Lum Berry, ncase you git hit by anothar status durng tha battle. You've played ta its' strengths well, wit water/ice attacks, as thay're special. Body Slbe is meh. I'd give it Taxic, as wit Taxic and Rest, you could stall thngs out. Obviously, if you don't have Taxic coz you used it on Cradily....tutar it Sleep Rap (dawg n Fotree does it fo you). RestRap Walren is just...epic.

Cradily...Double Tebe, and evasion n general, isn't that handy, as tha odds is when an attack hits, it turns critical. I would advise somethng like dis: Taxic / Giga Dran / Stackpile / Swallow. You can Stackpile, heal wit Swallow/Giga Dran, and stall tham out wit Taxic.

Sandstarm is good, but maybe you should lead wit Walren, as it doesn't benefit from Sandstarm, and does better witout, whereas Metagross benefits from it.

Hope I helped!

Actually, both Ice Punch and Thunderpunch were Special types n 3rd gen. Personally I like ta use Agility wit Metagross snce chances is it can survive an attack, speed up, than go on ta sweep at least a few Pokemon.

Yes. Nature specifies a stat that will be higher than normal and one that will be weaker than normal (Atk +, Sp. Def - fo nstance) wit tha exception of five natures which won't affect stats at all. Tha "happily eats anythng" refers ta tha Pokemon's Ndividual Value (IV) that is tha highest. Unless you're breedng, you have little control over IV but you'd want ta catch a Pokemon whose nature bolsters its strong ponts (a fast Pokemon wit a Speed + nature, fo nstance).

No, Old Rod only catches Karp and occasionally Tentacool. You'll need a Good/Snoopa Rod fo Rideavanha.

And I guess. But it's a TM, and a decent one at that, so I don't know why you'd wanna have that as a temp move nstead of perdawgent. But yeah, it's fne.

Above is good. Ridevanha is common as muck on pretty much all sea routes.

As fo locations:

Old Rod - Dewfod Tawn
Good Rod - Route 118 (Surf required)
Snoopa Rod - Mossdeep City

^ Thanks fo tha advice on mah tebe. I thnk I will try Sleep Rap nstead of Body Slbe wit Walren. I might also do Giga Dran/Taxic/Stackpile/Swallow fo Cradily.

I unfotunately can't teach Metagross Shadow Ball, coz it already did know Shadow Ball at one pont n time, lol =(...I removed it ta teach Earthquake nstead. Oh well; I'll just have ta use his moveset as is. I thought Psychic was a good move ta have on a Psychic-type, though. Why is it not very good fo Metagross?

How do I git tha Lum Berry? I gizoogled it and it said n Emerald, you can git tha Lum Berry n Shawtyycove City or Route 123. I don't have tha word "Corsola" n mah set of words I can sez ta tha Berry Master's wife, but is thare a way I can git tha Lum Berry from Shawtyycove City?

Usually tha dawg on tha tap half of Shawtyycove where you can jump down ledges ta git ta tha hizouse wit tha Rest TM will give you one. "A berry suits you ta a t! Why should that be so?" If that doesn't work, you can fish around Pacfidlog til you fnd a Corsola so that way it can be n yo word box.

As fo tha Metagross, I see no problem wit Psychic, but if I'm not mistakesn, Metagross is more of a physical attacker than special.

Ty fo tha advice, though . Will have ta go try ta fnd a Corsola.

Edit: Umm...I caught a Corsola and than went ta tha Berry Master's wife and gave her tha phrase that someone on gizoogle said ta use: Challenge Corsola. But she gave me a Leppa Berry, not a Lum Berry. Is dis tha wrong phrase?

That dawg's unpredictable. I used ta git nothng but Lum Berries. However, on mah current save file, he never gbee me one eithar.Don't worry bout it.

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Berry_Master

Bulbapedia doesn't give a phrase fo Lum Berry...

I found a lnk sezng BAD DATE is one ta git a Lum Berry. Try that. However, it said Overwhelmng Nnetales gits a Leppa Berry...I thnk if you don't git tha password fo tha one-off berry, it's randomly selected.

^ Yeah I kept googlng it coz I kept fndng different passwords, and fnally I found somethng that said ta just save befoe you rap ta tha Berry Master's wife and than keep repeatng tha sbee phrase ta her over and over agan and resettng until you git tha right berry. I did dis wit tha phrase "Angry Abra" (anothar password I'd found onlne) and after 3 resets, she gave me a Lum Berry.

^ I don't know if you're lookng ta buy from a stare like GbeeStap or Best Buy so that you can go n person and see if any of tha used gbees custamers have turned n is fake or not, but if you're just lookng fo somewhere ta buy tham, beazon.com has all of tham available; I just checked.

I've never had any bad experiences wit beazon itself, and as fo tha sellers, yo best bet is ta pick a seller from tha list that has tha most custamers (avoid ones that have just launched), and go through tha reviews and make sure thay is generally positive, and that thare is no negative ones accusng tham of sendng fake or dbeaged merchandise.

I'm sure you already know dis, but don't pick someone necessarily wit tha best ratng if thay only have 5 custamers or so; better ta go wit tha 4 star seller wit 100 custamers than tha 5 star one wit just a few.

Does anyone know exactly how ta trade from FireRed ta Emerald or Ruby? I have gizoogled it numerous times, and gotsten tans of different answers. Most seem ta agree it can't be done until you beat tha Cnnabar Island gym leader n FR and tha Elite Four n Emerald (I have done both of thase thngs).

How you do it after that seems ta vary...Some sez you have ta git some Ruby Casng or somethng like that, othars sez you have ta catch every sngle available pokemon n tha Fire Red gbee...Anyone have a straight answer on dis?

Like step by step, go ta dis hizouse, rap ta dis homey ta do that, etc.

It would be really helpful and very much appreciated if someone can do that .
