{Introduction}





Welcome to the Metal & Colour Generations Simple Question & Answer thread! <3 With the increase of threads popping up just to ask simple questions, I decided a thread specifically for that purpose might be helpful. It actually would have been up a while ago, but I was busy with other stuff . Anywho, I hope this thread will be helpful to many of you! If you have any questions, feel free to PM me :3 And yes, this is almost the exact same as the Advanced Generation thread XD;
So basically, just post asking whatever question you might have. Other members will come along and give you answers if there is one, and there you go! <3
{Rules}

→ This thread is for asking simple questions about any of the Metal & Colour Generation games (Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, and Crystal). If you have a question about any of the other games, check out their own respective forums.





→ Before posting in here, please check Google or a reliable Pokémon fansite for answers. It will be a lot faster.

→ All of the PokéCommunity rules apply to this thread.

→ Do not make a post asking why people haven't answered your question. Give it time, eventually somebody will come along and answer it.









{Announcements}

Would it be better to take your pokemon to the pokemon center when its health is on red or when it faints? You know there are some pokemon that level up with happiness. The best was to boost its happiness is to battle with it right? Well if you battle with it, and its health is on red, and you take it to the pokemon center and heal it, will that increase its happiness more than just letting it faint? Please help!

Fainting = Disliking.

If you played Yellow, you would've noticed that after you let Pikachu faint and turned around to talk to it when it had recovered, it'd have its back turned with dislike.
Also, if you happened to have tried the same concept in G/S and then plugged your cartridge into Pokemon Stadium 2, you would've seen their "happiness" rating drop (if it had the potential to drop).

Hey, I have an actual question!

Come one and all and flaunt your knowledge to a poor little fool such as myself.

Right, so I have 2 GBA SPs, a BRAND NEW link cable and a copy of Crystal and Silver Version.
However when I try to trade. one game saves and then readies itself to begin the trading but the other one claims that my "friend is not ready" ,even though they clearly are. When I first tried trading, I pressed the A button at the same time for both and then again where I left a few seconds of discrepancy between the two.
I have also tried again a number of times, switching the cables etc but the problem remains the same.


Could anyone shed some light on the situation, pwease?

This kind of thing ALWAYS happens to me.

Most likely your cable is a GBA cable. GBC and GBA cables will both fit in a GBA, but GBC cables only work with GBC games and GBA cables only work with GBA games.

I don't believe so, but I also never tried. Could you explain what you want to do in more detail, and I'll research it.

I know you can't transfer them from 1st/2nd to 3rd, but I am sure there is a way you could make Pokemon in the 3rd that are like twins of your old ones. I would just wait, I am not the person to ask about cheat devices since I have never used one.

Good luck finding a GBC cable, I don't think you can buy them in stores anymore.

You can usually find new/used/old ones in game trading stores

EDIT: Crystal Question:
In Crystal you introduce yourself to Oak at the start. Shouldn't this be Elm. Because when getting the Egg from Mr. Pokemon, you meet Oak for presumably the first time.

Does yellow have Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander in the game or do you have to trade them from the other version?

Charmander can be obtained by a trainer at the Northwest corner of Route 24 after beating all the trainers on Nugget Bridge. He is where TM 45 is.

Hey guys I had a quick question for you. It's more of an opinion-based question, but I was hoping to get some input from some of you.

I'm playing Crystal, and I'm just about to the lake of rage. I have a Dragonaire on my team, but I'm thinking of dropping it. Dragonite is great, but by the time I get to lvl 55 I'll have beaten all 16 gyms and the Dragonite won't be much use. Dragonaire isn't very good so I'm not sure I want to use it.

I'm looking at adding a flying type to my team. I don't like using a "fly slave" since I fly around so much, I prefer teaching fly to a permanent member of my team.

So, besides legendaries, what is a good flying pokemon to use? I was looking at either Crobat or Skarmory....good idea?

I prefer Crobat, but since this is in-game, any Pokemon that can learn Fly would work, even if it does have bad stats.

I would stick with Dragonite. By the time it DOES evolve as you say you'll have a good Pokemon to face "Red" and even so if you take some time and train Dragonair (depending on your patience) you can train it in Victory Road at least to level 50 and from there try to use it throughout most of the pokemon league and it should evolve before you reach the 9th badge.

To add:

Obtaining Bulbasaur: Check the house next to the Pokémon Center in Cerulean City. (Not Celadon.) You can meet Melanie there, a girl at the very back of the room. If your Pikachu is at its happiest (try feeding him Potions, even when he's at full health), talk to her as soon as you can to receive Bulbasaur.

Obtaining Charmander: Go talk to Damian northwest of Nugget Bridge. Nothing special here, if I recall correctly.

Obtaining Squirtle: Beat Lt. Surge, then go talk to Officer Jenny in Vermilion City. She'll give Squirtle to you.

Naturally, for all three, you'll need an open space in your party to accept them.

How can you replace the internal battery in Crystal?
I just found my game after ages, and I was in hysterics that's how happy I was, so I played for a b it then saved the game and went for dinner, I came back and the save file wasn't their.
Please respond.


EDIT: Nevermind, I figured out that you only need a watch battery, and the installation is quite easy.
