Ok thanks, and now I'm busy anyway, how can you raise there happiness exactly (I never knew it) I only know that in goldenrod there is a barbershop or something which makes them happier.

Yeah, the Barbershop will help and also walking 256 steps adds a point. Gaining a level does well, too. If all goes well, it should evolve around...well, mine evolved at level 31 after lots of walking and barbershopping. Also, I think it helps that you hatched the Togepi out of the Egg. Maybe it'll evolve sooner for you.

in the underground basement in Goldenrod, there's that little switch puzzle. i know how to get through it to rescue the director, but there's one thing that has always eluded me. how do you get to that pokeball item nestled in the far lower left of the area? what's the switch code to get there?

how was gender determined in gen 1 and gen 2 games? i read that in gen 3 it's derived from the personality value, but what was it based on before that was introduced?

is it like shininess where it's based on some existing stats of the pokemon (eg IV's)? or if i traded a pokemon from GSC to RBY and then back a little later, is there a chance it would switch gender?

It was determined by Individual Values, aka IVs. :3

Hello, I just joined this community and I have a Pokemon Crystal question. I am so sorry I feel like such a buffoon, I have posted this question three times so far but I am stumbling around lost and like an idiot, first I made a thread and it was preferred I use the question thread, then I stumbled into the wrong question thread. I have never been such a clumsy newbie before. I am quite a bit embarrassed. ><


Anyway...
I was just checking up on my Crystal today for the first time in a long time. And I really like my game but I no longer like my character name. Is there any way, a gameshark code or cheat of some kind I can use to change my character name?

I found this, tested it, and it works:

Player's Name Mod
01??7DD4
01??7ED4
01??7FD4
01??80D4
01??81D4
01??82D4
01??83D4

End Code 01??84D4

Replace The ?? With The Letter You Want:

50 - NULL (End of Name REQUIRED Where It Is Used!)
60 - BOLD A (Not Available On Name Screen)
61 - BOLD B ( " )
72 - BOLD P ( " )
80 - A
81 - B
82 - C
83 - D
84 - E
85 - F
86 - G
87 - H
88 - I
89 - J
8A - K
8B - L
8C - M
8D - N
8E - O
8F - P
90 - Q
91 - R
92 - S
93 - T
94 - U
95 - V
96 - W
97 - X
98 - Y
99 - Z
9A - (
9B - )
9C - :
9D - ;
9E - [
9F - ]
A0 - a
A1 - b
A2 - c
A3 - d
A4 - e
A5 - f
A6 - g
A7 - h
A8 - i
A9 - j
AA - k
AB - l
AC - m
AD - n
AE - o
AF - p
B0 - q
B1 - r
B2 - s
B3 - t
B4 - u
B5 - v
B6 - w
B7 - x
B8 - y
B9 - z
BA - é
BB - 'd
BC - 'l
BD - 's
BE - 't
BF - 'v
E1 - PK
E2 - MN
E4 - 'r
E5 - 'm
E6 - ?
E7 - !
EF - Male Symbol
F0 - Currency Symbol (P with Horizontal Slashses)
F1 - x (Multiply)
F2 -. (Period)
F3 - / (Division)
F4 - ,(Comma)
F5 - Female Symbol
F6 - 0
F7 - 1
F8 - 2
F9 - 3
FA - 4
FB - 5
FC - 6
FD - 7
FE - 8
FF - 9

So if you wanted to change your name to CRYSTAL, you would use this code:

01827DD4
01917ED4
01987FD4
019280D4
019381D4
018082D4
018B83D4
015084D4

I hope it helps!

In Pokemon Crystal how do I get to the Lake of Rage? I beat Jasmine, but the guy who sells Ragecandybars won't let me pass.

You have to go up through the building to the left of the RageCandyBar house.
Just keep going up on Route 43 and you'll reach the Lake of Rage.

Hello, another Crystal question, a concern this time.
I was playing some this morning on the bus to Astronomy and the name rater is not allowing me to change my pokemons' names. I tried four of them and he says everytime "_____, what a wonderful name, it's perfect. Treat ____ with love and kindness" or close enough. None of my pokemon in this game are traded, I may not have played the jhoto games in years but that is common knowledge that I remember clearly; some are gamesharked but not traded. I don't even have that ability anymore I gave my Gameboy Advanced to Goodwill some time ago.

So why is this happening? Is it perhaps because I haven't beaten Whitney yet? No, that can't be because this problem has never existed before.
Is there any other reason this could be happening?

Have you already changed your name? If so, this is why. The Name Rater will only let you change names of Pokemon that have your name and ID as the OT. If you use the code again to change your name to the previous, you should be able to rename them (it works in the newer games, anyway).

Yeah, all your old Pokemon will have the OT of your old name.
However, new Pokemon that you catch (or hatch) will have your new name as the OT.

As long as you have all the badges, you won't have to worry about outsiders.

As many as it takes. The gender ratio of Chikorita is 1♀:7♂, so it shouldn't take more than 10. If it does, then your luck just sucks. :P

I think I can remember that being in one of the games

Maybe it was Emerald? If it is in the game then it's just as easy as talking to the gym leaders, that's how I remember it from what I played that had it.
