Hey guys, this is my first time ever coming to these forums. I'm not even sure this is the right place to post my issue, so if it's not the right place, please move it to the proper section.

I have an issue and I don't know if it's something I'm doing wrong or not.

I recently bought a bundle of FR, LG, Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and a link cable for the GBA and GBA SP. I'm playing on 2 GBA SP's, and after getting TWO of these link cables from the same place online and neither of the cables seem to work. I plug each end of the cable into a seperate GBA SP and once I turn one of them on, the other one can not be turned on. No matter which I turn on first, it always results in the second GBA SP not being able to turn on. I've tried getting both games to the cable club or whatever it's called and then plugging the cable into both GBA SP's, and after it saves each game, the "Please Wait..." "... ... B Button: Cancel" message appears on both screens and nothing ever happens.

I feel as though maybe I'm doing something wrong, because what are the chances of 2 link cables both being bad? Any help on this issue would be much appreciated! Thanks ahead of time.

- Kil

From my own past experience, Link Cables can be a little faulty sometimes- though by your phrasing I take it to mean you talk to the cable club lady, then insert the cable? If that's what you meant, you should insert the cable to both GBAs and then talk to the lady. If that's not it, then it's probably faulty link cables, unfortunately.

Hello, I want to know in the Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald daycare does a pokemon miss a move learned while leveling there or does the daycare teach it? I know the old Silver and Gold daycare taught the move but I am not sure if it's different in the next generation. I have never really used the Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald daycare for much.

No, the Day Care will teach the move and it will erase the first slot move the Pokemon has.

To get a Latios with a certain Nature in Ruby. Do I save before I check the TV after I beat the Elite Four the first time?

Yeah. Once Latios is released into Hoenn, its nature and IVs (and to a lesser extent, shininess) are set.

Just pure luck, nothing else. One time, it took me 10 goes to get Kyogre in Emerald. The other, 2 balls.

Rayquaza and Regice are both hard to catch, you just got lucky :D

Like Amore said, it comes down to pure Luck.

People have caught Rayquaza in a Pokeball with full health and no status abnormalities.

Others have taken forever to catch it, with 1 Hp, Ultra balls and Paralysis.

As for Regirock, just keep trying, you'll hopefully get the rock beast under your spell

sleep status and freeze status are the highest probability raisers, also use timerballs the have a higher probability then ultra balls after a certain amount of turns. I caught all my legendarys with pokeballs anyway

regirock is hard to catch in general. try putting him to sleep then get him to red and chuck timer and ultra balls at him. as stated before its all just luck really.

Does Soft Sand affect the damage that Sandstorm does? (And similarly, Nevermelt Ice for Hail, etc.)

Fraid not. Just the ground and ice moves, respectively.

^ Thanks .

Another one: In Emerald after you beat the game and you open up the battledome or whatever it's called, if you attach berries to the pokemon that you use in the various competitions and the berry is used during the competition, is it reset after the competition is over?

I'm asking because I think I want to teach my Walrein Rest, but I don't really feel like growing tons and tons of chesto berry trees. Oh, and I haven't yet beat the game, so I can't test it out yet XD.

It will regenerate after the battle is over. You won't lose any held items in the Battle Frontier, only in battles with normal trainers or wild Pokemon. Basically, if you don't gain experience from the battle, it's one of those kinds of battles that you won't lost your item, if that makes any sense. This should also apply to the Trainer Tower.

However, in the Battle Pyramid, I don't think the item will reset itself after every battle because those facilities are trial places. But after you leave, then yes, it should be back. Can't carry items in the Pike iirc, so no worrying about that.

In R/S/E: The artist would make a splendid artwork of your Pokemon

In D/P/Pt: You get the Glass Stage accesory.

I'm wondering if someone can help...

I'm looking to buy Pokemon Emerald, but it'll be the US version. Will this work with my Soul Silver's Pal Park, which is the UK version?

I don't think so. I'm pretty sure GBA games are region locked, so it won't work, but don't quote me on that. My SoulSilver is Japanese, and I can't Pal Park with my English GBA games, so I'm pretty sure about this.
