Awesome, I had no idea those even existed--dumb Nintendo, what ever happened to backwards compatibility? Thanks, I'll go track one of those down within the next week or two and get back to all of you lovely, helpful people and let you know how it goes. Thanks everyone for whittling this down with me.

Is Slugma obtainable before the E4 on the wild? I want to use it's evolution, Magcargo on my Fire-type Ultimate Monotype Challenge as the third pokémon. So could you please tell me as fast as possible?

@edit: On Emerald, that is.

Yep, you can find them on Fiery Path and route 113.

Not that I know of. You'll have to rely on luck if you want to find Feebas.

Level 53 is when Nidorino learns his last move (Horn Drill) or if you want Nidoking to learn Thrash, then evolve him at level 22 and he also learns Megahorn at level 43.

Couldn't you just evolve Nidorino whenever it learns the last move that you want, and then if you need it to learn a Nidoking move you could just use Mushrooms to "re"-learn?

Pretty sure the mushrooms would work. But I personally don't find Horn Drill useful for in-game. It may be a OHKO move, but it's inaccurate and only has 5 PP. So yeah, I'd evolve it before level 53.

Mushrooms would work, but it won't work for the moves that Nidorino could learn previously. For example, if you evolve it after it learns Horn Drill, the resulting Nidoking can't learn Leer, Horn Attack, Helping Hand, Fury Attack and Flatter.

I am fairly new to the Ruby/Sapphire gen, I was wondering how good/strong the Stockpile/Swallow/Spit Up moves are?

Are they worth keeping or ditch em and get some better (TM) moves?

They are pretty weak (good for contests though).

They are a lot better in Gen IV as Stockpile gives a 1 point stat boost to Def and Sp Def

I'd recommend other moves.

I have another question:

I just got the Eevee in Celadon and was wondering what to evolve it into.

Here is my team:

Voltorb lvl22
Nidoking lvl26
Primeape lvl28
Ivysaur lvl26
Pidgeotto Lvl24
Graveler lvl27


I was thinking either Flareon or Vaporean, but I don't know which Pokemon to replace.

Thanks!

Ditch Voltorb and add either Jolteon (I know it wasn't one of your choices but meh)

Or Flareon, since you lack fire moves/types.

I think you should choose Vaporeon (wait I actually have a reason).
Because they can learn Surf and Ice Beam which can take out a lot of the E4. You don't really need Flareon as Pidgeotto can take Grass and Bugs and Primeape and Graveler can take Ice. Nidoking can learn Fire Blast (as can Graveler) and Thunder(bolt) as well. This way Nidoking doesn't have to learn Surf and Ice Beam.

Just want to toss in that Nidoking isn't a good contender for Fire Blast or Thunderbolt. @_@ I would personally scrap Graveler in favor of an Eeveelution, and I'm leaning more towards Vaporeon. As much as I like having Fire types, it's a good idea to have Ice Beam coverage for FRLG's E4. Nidoking is a poor choice for special attacks.

You're wrong. Graveler is actually weak against ice and Primeape takes neutral damage from it. Although Graveler can resist Agatha's poison types so it would still be useful.

I may as well step in and attempt to sort out this debacle.

As you've said, Graveler can't take Ice, but its also pretty much useless, at this point of the game. Assuming you lack a GBA link cable,
you can't even evolve it, thus unlocking its true potential, either. It lacks Stone Edge, due to the game being Gen III, and all the potent Poison Types, save Koga's Muk and Agatha's Arbok,
are either levitating or flying types. I suggest you add Lapras to your team, it can withstand a good amount of attacks, and gets powerful
STAB on both Surf and Ice beam, that way you won't have to inconvience your Nidoking with special attacks.

Evolve Eevee into Vaporeon like others said, and teach it Ice Beam or something. It will help you in the Elite 4.

Ditch Graveler for Lapras and ditch Voltorb for Jolteon.
I hope I helped you out, and good luck on your journey.

Sorry, but you'll have to ask in the Emulation section. This one here's only for the official games.

Are you asking if your friends secret bases in your game would be gone, or if your secret base on your friends game would be gone?

I'd imagine when you delete the game, the secret bases you acquired from friends in your games would be gone.

But if you mean if that the secret base that you gave your friend in thier games, I think your base would still be there regardless if you deleted your file.

Sorry if I didn't answer your question correctly, lol.
