I've played Pokemon for years now, but I need some advice. When I started, I just used one Pokemon the whole run, and only used other to revive my main one. What are some ways I can rank up all of my Pokemon to all around an even level, like I have a team of Pokemon from levels 10-19. How should I do that? Thanks!

Oh... So you want all of your Pokemon to LVL 10- 19 right ? SO its a common thing ! Of course ! Train your Pokemon hard ! And if your thinking how i have an idea -

Just do't run from an encounter. If you have any Pokemon encounter try to fight them through and make your Pokemon strong. Do it do it and do it untill you got a good lvl. If you want your Pokemon to be strong the only 2 ways are Either using cheats or using the Real way. The real way is By training your Pokemon hard. Take your time and make sure you teach your Pokemon Good moves. Push push & Push in that idea until you had a good team. If i say directly Just run in a grass side and wait until you encounter a Pokemon then Fight with the Pokemon. And don't run from battle if you lose or got all your Pokemon faint you will get back to Pokemon center. And There is another way. If your having Problem in training so then download the VBA Emulator Then play your game if you have an encounter just click [ right shift + F1,2,3,4,5.... any F button from 1 to 10] so the game will be saved if you click the the button you saved then that time when you was fighting will come again

example - You encountered a pidgey you saved the game by clicking right shift + F10 then you losed aginst it if you click the F10 then you will load the previous time when you saved (Don't use Shift when loading)

Then you will know what move the Pokemon will use so you retry more then you can think. Hope i helped !

So I just bought a new sapphire online

Back: AGB-002
Casing: Looks legit, see through casing, front sticker is shiny
inside: (I) (Nintendo) AGB-E05-01

which I found to be the legit markings but when I started it up it had a save file labeled TEST and it tells me "Save file found, will be loaded" (paraphrasing) Is this really a fake cartridge or could this just be a slight error and something I will be able to look past so I can re-enjoy this game? :/ Thanks in advance for the response

Alright guys, I'm going to be adding a water type to my team a little later and I need to know which one to choose in Fire Red.

-Vaporeon
-Lapras
-Gyrados

I always use Gyrados and it never fails, but it lacks a move pool and Spec Attack in Fire Red.
Vaporeon seems to have great hp and can learn ice moves and stuff.
Lapras comes later, but is really good. Not suree.

I'd stay away from Gen III Gyarados tbh. It can't really make great use of its attack stat this gen, sadly. Vaporeon and Lapras are both pretty tanky, and as much as I like Vaporeon, I'd go with Lapras. Reason being is that it can learn a bunch of coverage moves. I like to go with Surf, Ice Beam, Psychic, and Thunder/Thunderbolt myself.

Starmie can also do this, with faster and harder hits as well. But if you want more of a tank, go with Lapras. That's my suggestion. Though going with Vaporeon isn't bad either. But I really think you should stay away from Gyarados. As long as you do that, your Water type choice will have my stamp of approval (not that you'd want it though, because it's invisible).

i have seen a lot of forums for this question i have but am still confused. i want to transfer pokemon from 3rd gen to my 5th gen i already know how to do this but i have an r4 and two of the 3rd gen games are in there i have the original phat ds, which has the port for link cable but i never used it. i have an sp where i play my sapphire and play the others on an r4 on ds. i want to know if i buy a link cable if i will be able to trade between my r4 on my ds and sp than just put my sapphire into my 5th gen and trade than wait for pokebank and so on... or is the only option to a) either buy all the games and trade normally. if i do this can i trade between two of the original phat ds or B) buy another sp and appropriate link cable and transfer through that

also can anyone refer me to a universal link cable if there is one

So I just started to know about EV Training. The problem is, I've been leveling my Growlithe on Gastly at the Pokemon Tower, which raises Sp. Atk. The thing I want to train my Growlithe is Atk so is there any way to reset all the EVs that my pokemon has gotten?

P.S. Playing Fire Red here, if that helps in anyway!

Do you think you'd be able to trade them over into FRLG?

((Firstly, I apologise if this is the wrong section to post this, but I think it's appropriate considering it's a GS used for the third generation of games.))


A few nights ago, I started a new run-through on one of my Ruby versions. Something I've always enjoyed doing with the third generation games is to do randomiser Nuzlocke challenges. I used my GameShark (this one: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51JGF3JDV3L.jpg) and it worked fine. The next night I used my GS again. After selecting the codes for the Pokémon, my GameBoy/DS goes to the white screen and stays there and all that can be heard is that glitching sound. It loads up GS properly and allows me to select whatever codes I want, but again, after selecting to start the game, it just stays on a white screen.


What is this? I know for a fact it isn't an issue with the systems or the games as I have tried it with three GameBoy SPs, two DS, two Ruby versions, a Sapphire, Emerald and FireRed version.


Thanks!

Even though this is about GameShark, it's not like you're asking for codes, so I'll keep this. Just gonna merge it with the Q&A thread first. Anyway, I don't have much experience with one, but have you perhaps tried removing the code and adding it again? Also, I would just stick with using a GBA SP when using it instead of a DS...just for extra safe measures, but that's just me. I'm super cautious, haha.

Oh...and, although this is just probably age talking, try taking it out and blowing into the cartridge. lol Yeeeup.

I have not played a pokemon game in years and have come across a copy of ruby! Since I have not followed pokemon since the original I am not sure what pokemon are strong in this game, can anyone help me by maybe telling me the pokemon they prefer/think are the strongest or just cool things in general?

p.s I love psychic type but just realized I don't have someone to trade with to create alakazam:*(

Ralts is a pretty good Psychic type. It just requires a little bit of babying before it gets some good attacks, as Abra was like before.

For the starters, you should look up their final evolutions to see which one you like the most. Blaziken, Torchic's final form, is a beast and is Fire/Fighting. Swampert, Mudkip's final evolution, is Water/Ground and is great as well. Last, there's Sceptile, Treecko's final stage, and it's a Grass-type. I prefer either Blaziken or Swampert due to their other typings, so I have no real opinions on Sceptile.

Really, just look up an online Pokedex for Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald and see all the different Pokemon available to you. Pick whichever ones look cool, seem strong, or have attacks that you want to use.

Well, that depends, really. What other Pokémon are you planning to have on your team? Personally, I've used both, and they seem to perform equally as good when battling. :]

Yup, it depends. Synergy within your team is important, and use the one that counters type weaknesses that your other team members have, etc.

The megas and the additional typing they get also play a role. Charizard gets the Fire/Dragon typing but loses the flying one, while Venasaur gets an additional Poison typing. Move sets are something as well. Overall, there is no best. There's only the best when it's tailored to fit with your team.

FTFY a bit.

Choose the best starter for earlier in game and just try your hardest. Also train all your Pokémon.

So I'm playing a pokemon Emerald Randomised Nuzlocke and I had just beat one of the trainers in the desert area with my Kadabra, he hit level 29...and Evolved. I thought Kadabra only evolved by trading...can someone tell me why the heck he evolved by level?
Thanks in advance.

Hm, that's strange. I've never experienced anything like this when I'd played Emerald. Are you using cheat codes, by any chance? Maybe they've got something to do with this, like a side-effect of sorts? :o
