Does anyone know exactly how to trade from FireRed to Emerald or Ruby? I have googled it numerous times, and gotten tons of different answers. Most seem to agree it can't be done until you beat the Cinnabar Island gym leader in FR and the Elite Four in Emerald (I have done both of these things).

How you do it after that seems to vary...Some say you have to get some Ruby Casing or something like that, others say you have to catch every single available pokemon in the Fire Red game...Anyone have a straight answer on this?

Like step by step, go to this house, talk to this guy to do that, etc.

It would be really helpful and very much appreciated if someone can do that .
It's true that you can trade from FireRed to Emerald/Ruby. However, you have to complete Celio's quest in the Sevii Islands (get the Ruby from Mt. Ember on One Island, then pursue the Team Rocket Scientist who's stolen the Sapphire in the Dotted Hole on Six Island. Once you get the Sapphire back, then you return to One Island and give them to Celio. He'll fit his trading machine with them, and that will let you trade your FR game with R/E.)

^ Thank you for the response. However, I do not understand how to get the Ruby or the Sapphire back. I googled how to get the ruby back, and I came upon this page: http://www.supercheats.com/gameboyadvance/questions/pokemonfirered/20263/How-do-you-get-the-ruby-stone.htm

It seems to be the general consensus that you need to talk to the 2 Rockets standing side by side near the base of Mt. Ember. However, when I talk to either of them, one tells me, "Over here. We'll try digging here. That treasure the ADMINS've been talking about should be here." The other says, "What the...? You're in the way. Get lost."

Neither of them offer to battle me, and having a pokemon use DIG in front of either of them does not work, either. Yet apparently I'm supposed to battle them to get the Ruby? How?

Edit: I can't seem to get off these islands at all lol -- I'm kind of stuck. I can't fly off, the ferry won't take me off, and I can't complete my task for Bill's friend because the bikers on Three Island won't fight me =(.

I remember having a lot of confusion with this. You have to have beaten the Pokemon League for the door to open, and then when you talk to them, they should fight you.

Sydian's right; you do have to beat the Pokemon League in order to do the Ruby/Sapphire Quest. You also have to have the National Dex.

I think you have to go to Two Island first and talk to the man who runs the Game Corner. He'll say his daughter, Lostelle is lost in Berry Forest on Three Island. When you agree to look for Lostelle, that's when you can battle the bikers.

^ Ty Sydian and PlatinumDude for your help !

To clarify something else, for anyone who might've stumbled upon my question after googling it or something, you need to both defeat the Elite Four and catch at least 60 different pokemon (and visit Professor Oak after doing so) before Celion gives you the pass to visit the other islands.

I only had a pokedex of 19 when I beat the Elite Four (lol, I usually just level up 2 or 3 main pokemon and all the rest are HM slaves :X), so I now have to go around trying to catch some.

And to think all I wanted to do was trade my Dragonite and Charizard over to my Emerald so they could be on a team with my Metagross for the battle frontier <.<. I didn't know I'd have to beat the Elite Four with just those 2 lol but they were both level 65 by the time I got there so it was fine.

The first time you head there you need to take one of the boats and select Five Island as your destination. Afterward, you can fly there, but only from Four Island or another spot on Five Island. Otherwise, you need to take the boat every time.

Roselia is exclusive to Ruby/Sapphire.

Just breed male Roselia with female Chansey.

@ Luvrdisc & Aromatherapy:

Roselia to be traded/transferred from Ruby or Sapphire **TO** your Emerald/LG is likely your only option. Unless you have a Gamecube shadow game (Colosseum and/or XD, with a GBA-to-Gamecube cable).

Or find someone to "borrow" a Roselia from or the game of. If you are "older", a neighborhood youth may have such stuff so as to help. Such a method would be cheaper costwise.

Vermilion City pier. Talk to the Sailor guy. He'll ask which island you wish to visit.

Fly betweens:
~1, 2, and 3
~4 and 5
~6 and 7
~otherwise boat between

What should I teach my Linoone? This is in-game only, btw, so I can't do anything like guarantee a certain type of hidden power.

Here's what I think I want it to be:

Linoone @ Shell Bell (I have leftovers on my Ludicolo, and can't repeat hold items for the battle frontier)

Return
Belly Drum
Shadow Ball
??? (Maybe Facade)

What should go in the last slot? I'm pretty sure about the first 3, but feel free to make suggestions about those, too. If I didn't use Facade, I might put a Lum Berry on instead since Belly Dance won't give me any health back from Shell Bell.

Another option might be Iron Tail...

I want to say Facade, since status moves are a frequent in Battle Frontier, especially the Pike. Personally, I'd just go along with Facade, because I can't think of a lot of other options for Linoone. You might consider waiting on some more feedback though. I just wanted to say that I agree with Facade, lol.

Belly Drum btw. lol

Imma go with Syd. I usually get hit with a lot of status ailments, especially in the Pyramid, and Facade definitely helped in those types of situations. I've seen a lot of Toxics and Thunder Waves in the Battle Dome, too.
Hariyama + Guts + Facade = ftw

Since you are going with Belly Drum I would give it rest and a lum berry as you cutting your life in half to max your attack doesn't work all that great if you get KO'ed on that turn. So its a risk but at least Rest would give you your health back. Thats really the only thing I can think of to go with Belly Drum besides Facade which is not a bad idea.

^ Thanks all for the input :).

I'm still just at my 6th badge, so I don't need to decide yet, but I think I am leaning towards Facade. Rest, as Gearuvagen mentioned, is a good alternative, especially since Belly Drum cuts 1/2 of its HP, and I'm still going back and forth between the 2.

I just think I'm leaning more towards Facade because if I get hit with some status ability before I can use Rest, then it becomes less useful, since I'll have to sit out 2 turns while it sleeps. I think I just need to be careful about what I let hit it -- non fighting-type pokemon that preferably attack more with physical than special.

Ghost-pokemon especially will be good since their ghost-type moves won't affect him and shadow ball will be doing max damage. The only problem with them would be Curse, I guess.

It has pretty good speed, so even if I got hit with a burn or poison after using BD, if I ended up going first for each of the remaining pokemon, I'd live through taking some burn or poison dmg and probably could take out everything, even rock/steel types.

Makes me wish I could get a Salac Berry in-game =(.

Hey guys :)! I hate to ask another question and I hope it's not too dumb but...Does Belly Drum's attack power bonus still count if you switch the pokemon that used it out during battle?

I used my Linoone's Belly Drum on Phoebe's Dusclops, but when it put a curse on me, I switched it out. It then confused my next pokemon, so I switched it back and used Shadow Ball. But for some reason, Shadow Ball didn't 1 shot it, despite the fact that attack power should've been maxed and my Linoone is 6 levels higher than her Dusclops.

So I'm going to assume the attack power bonus doesn't stay, but I wanted to double-check here, in case Linoone's attack power really is just that bad.

No, just like any other move that will increase a type of stat, Belly Drum wears off the moment you switch your Pokemon, unless Baton Pass is used.

But you'd think with Belly Drum's penalty you'd at least get to use its effect all battle. :c

You might wanna check out the wifi section, as this section only deals with games on Game Boy Advance, which don't have wifi.

The rematch feature of 3rd Generation is called Trainers Eye, which is a Poke Navi App you receive from the president of the Devon Corporation.

But the app comes with the PokeNav automatically. Not to be confused with a Poketch app.
