Surskit are found very rarely on route 101. Took me 2 hours to find one so good luck.

Not on Emerald; the only way to get a Surskit would be to either trade with R/S/XD, or mix records with a R/S game which has a Surskit swarm.

That is not correct. The Surskit swarm is a random TV event on Emerald. That is exactly how I got one on my Emerald cart.

How do you soft reset on LeafGreen and Sapphire? If you can, that is. Thanks.

I've never had a Surskit swarm, despite having had Emerald for nearly 4 years... However, by mixing records with Sapphire when I had a Seedot swarm, I caught Seedot on Sapphire. Seedot swarms don't occur naturally on Sapphire, so it's safe to assume that mixing records caused it. Are you sure you didn't mix records with R/S beforehand?

At random times during Pokemon Emerald, the TV will announce that a swarm of surskit appeared on whatever route they appear in. After watching this, there will be an increased chance of finding the very hard to find surskit on the aforementioned route.

You are absolutely correct. Serves me right for going off memory. I looked at my notes and only Seedot, Nuzleaf, and Skitty are outbreaks in Pokemon News unless you mix records with RS, then you get Surskit too. Thanks for the correction.

Huh. That's weird. I usually find Surskit underwater. It's pretty common. Or is that only in one dive spot...

Nope. Surskit is VERY rare. You can only find it on RS, at 1% on the following routes - 102, 111, 114, 117, and 120. In all 5 areas it is either by Surf or in the grass, NEVER underwater. You are probably confusing it with Clamperl.

I'm playing Leaf Green, and I can't seem to find a Horsea anywhere. I've tried using a Good and a Super Rod in all the areas they're supposed to appear, but no luck even after dozens of attempts.

Is this a bug, or am I not doing something right?

Horsea's are found on Route's; 4, 10, 12, 13, 19, 20, 21, 24 and also in Vermillion City, using a Good Rod.
They are harder to find in LF, than they are in FR, but they are there.

Acording to this:
http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Surskit

Surskit does swarm on emerald so you are wrong about need of mixing records

You aren't seriously trusting sites like bulbepedia and serebii, are you? The site at least has the right routes of the outbreaks, but good luck catching one until you mix records with RS. I don't trust sites (or anything anyone says for that matter) without testing it out myself first. On Route 120, of 300 wild Pokemon encounters ZERO were Surskit. After mixing records, there were 2. Not quite 1%, but I am probably just unlucky that way.

Well, you already know the Single Mode prize: Up-Grade
Double Mode prize: Dragon Scale
Knockout Mode prize: Metal Coat
Mixed Mode: King's Rock

It is timed simply to give you something to do. Once you have beaten it, try to beat it in less time.

I need to train a Zubat in FR.

Here are the conditions:
The Zubat is level 16.
I can't battle any trainers.
I've only got the first three badges.
I have to get it to evolve before heading through Rock Tunnel.

So, where should I train it?
Any help is appreciated.

Route 9 is your best bet:

Rattata 40%
Spearow 35%
Ekans 25%

There is also Route 24, but the Pokemon levels may require you to battle more often to gain the same Exp points:

Oddish 25%
Caterpie 20%
Weedle 20%
Abra 15%
Pidgey 15%
Kakuna 4%
Metapod 1%

I have never mixed records between my ruby and emerald game and I have a masquerain on my emerald, and bulbapedia has never been wrong about where to find pokemons I always find them exactly where they said that they are, it just take patience to find a surskit

You say you haven't mixed records, but that goes against EVERYTHING that I have read and experienced personally. Even bulbapedia states that Surskit occurrences are 'Swarm' instead of 'Rare' like RS, and swarms only occur once you have been notified through Pokemon News. As I said before, I went through 300 wild Pokemon encounters on every single route and never came across Surskit. Once I mixed records, I received Pokemon News about a Surskit outbreak, at which point I went to that route and did another 300 encounters and came across Surskit twice. Makes me wonder if your game is truly legit, or a possible fake where Surskit actually can be found without having to mix records.

My game is perfectly legit since I bought it in a gamestore here at home new, on the release date, and I did find my surskit in a swarm that they talked about on the tv but I didnt mix records for it

Okay so i just restarted my pokemon fire red 1 week ago, and so far i'm going to the 5th gym with:

Level 43 Charizard: Flame Thrower/Ember/Fly/Metal CLaw
Level 45 Snorlax: Body Slam/Yawn/Shock Wave/Water Pulse
Level 43 Raichu: Thunder Bolt/Thunder Shock/Brick Break/Thunder Wave
Level 43 Kadabra: Psychic/PsyBeam/Recover/Reflect
HM Pokemon Meowth, and soon Lapras.

Can someone tell me what 6th pokemon should I get and what level should each pokemon be around for each gym?

And also, if the moves are garbage, can you help replace some with better ones?

Ty dH~


Edit: Where should I train each pokemon?
