Nope, no trading from gold to ruby. It really sucks but ya. You can only trade within the GSC generation for the most part. You can trade back to RBY but only pokemon that existed in those games. So you can't trade a Tyranitar back to blue, for example.

How do I get bulbasaur in Yellow? I've tried whenever I play it, but the woman always says "It needs a good trainer to take care of it" any help would be greatly appreciated.

Buy a bunch of Potions from the store. Now, make sure you're already pretty close with Pikachu before going to her. (Winning battles, healing up, that sort of thing.) Now, go to Melanie (the woman in the house) and stand directly in front of her. Face Pikachu and keep feeding Potions to it, but be sure to talk to it after every one you give. When it starts jumping for joy, immediately turn to Melanie and talk to her. She should notice that your Pikachu is insanely happy and hand you Bulbasaur (providing you have space for it).

Hi guys, i have a question. I have Gameboy Color and original Pokemon Yellow cartridge. I heard that battery runs out in many games, so i want to make backup of my save. Is that possible to transfer save with some tool, compatible with Game boy Color? Plz help :/

Oh yeah and it would be cool to resend save back to the game after trading pokemon in emulator

There is a tool, called the Mega Memory Card and manufactured by InterAct (who also made Gamesharks). The card can back up and restore saves for all GBC games.

Just wanted to ask here, since I haven't delved into the realms of Gen II for some time.

In conjuction with glithces in gen I and my old Crystal Pokémon (which are now on Blue) I want to make a new save on Crystal. Trouble is, the internal battery is dead. What I need to know basically is, should I replace the battery myself or buy a new cartridge from eBay or somewhere? I have found the instructions for replacing the battery and it doesn't sound too complicated, but I just wanted to ask what would be the best thing to do.

Well if you're sure you can replace the battery and do it right, then go ahead and do it. Just realize that if you make a mistake, your game is going to be no good.

If you're not sure you can do it, then just get a new game. You can find Crystal on ebay for 15-20 bucks, and as long as you buy from a power seller it should work just fine. I got mine on there and it works perfectly.

Chances are, if you get one off of ebay, the internal battery will be dead.
You can easily put the battery in yourself, whth a small knife and screwdriver.

okay, this is my question, and it may ,make me sound stupid, but i'm gonna ask it anyway. on pkmn red, i'm having trouble catching zapdos. People have said you need to throw ultra balls or else it will miss. i am throwing ultra balls, and it still misses! people have also said you need to throw ultra balls and get it's health down low with a status condition. i did that with toxic right down to where it had one hp left! and the ultra balls still missed! and some people said that you need to catch it with a master ball, but when my sister was on her pokemon blue, she didn't use a master bal to catch it! help!

Keep tossing Ultra Balls. Sometimes they miss, sometimes they connect.

Also, sleep is more effective than poison.

Like he said it's not always gonna work, and if you poison it you're limiting your time ESPECIALLY when you use toxic as it worsens every turn. Just save before you fight it and keep trying, and DON'T get discouraged.

Okay, I have two questions.

First: Does anyone know a working mew glitch for the Blue verson. I've heard of alot of them, but most just screw your game up or don't work. Also not sure if I am aloud to ask this.

Second: For Crystal, how do you find the Rock Smash TM. I feel like screaming form how hard it is.

For the love of God don't use Toxic! Never use poison as your status effect because it will eventually ko the pokemon.

Get it's HP down into the red, as low as you can get it, and put it to sleep. Paralyzing it will work too but putting it to sleep works better. Then toss ultra balls at it.

It's gonna take awhile because a lot of them miss, but eventually one should work. Save before you start the battle because Zapdos is really hard to catch, as is Articuno and Moltres.

Just buy as many ultra balls as you can. Great balls will also work in a pinch but it will be harder to catch with those ones.

The glitch IIMarckus gave you works but! keep in mind the Mew is at level 7 XD so make sure you bring a bunch of weak pokemon! and at least one strong one so that just in case.. you probably won't have to worry about getting your weak pokemon killed as with any legendary bring plenty of ultra balls and good luck!

MAYBE YOU SHOULD PRESS CAPS LOCK *Presses Caps Lock* Now that looks better... on-topic Bayleef generally woun't do any damage to a Scyther so maybe try catching a Hoot-Hoot or Pidgey and training it up, till it learns Wing Attack and then it'll beat Scyther.

Scyther is 4x weak to rock attacks, so just one or two rock throws from geodude or onix will beat it. It is also 4x resistant to grass attacks so don't just teach Bayleef all grass attacks. Don't just go through the game with one pokemon, also. It is generally a bad idea.

Start out with a Hinoarashi (Cyndaquil) next time. ^_~ It's quick, easy, and it'll be leveled up by the time you get to the gym!

Well...I didn't have that problem, 'cuz I started with a Cyndaquil (isn't that obvious?) But you should just catch a Pidgey and level it up...they're very helpful as well Ugh...but when I was battling Whitney I sure had a tough time.............

You need to level up any rock or flying type, preferably Spearow or Onix (in my opinion. Pidgey, hoothoot, or even zubat might do better). If you have other games, I suggest trading a phanphy or larvitar to yourself, since both will slaughter anything bugsy throws against you.
