Yep. Using Gameshark to help complete your Pokédex is cheating. Surely there must be someone you can trade? =/

    Only event Pokemon via Gameshark are not cheating since you'd have to go to a certain event at a certain time and place and it's not worth the effort.

      Maybe try using your Hitmonlee, your Hitmonchan may not like the Ditto.

          I think pokemon generally frowns upon incest in G/S/C. Pokemon will not make eggs with direct relatives. Because your Ditto is technically the parent of your Hitmonchan, they will not breed. Instead, try breeding with Hitmonlee and Ditto because they aren't related. When trying to evolve your Tyrogue into a Hitmontop, make sure that its attack and defense stats are equal at level 20. It can be tough to balance the attack and defense stat. I found that giving either protein or iron to even out the attack and defense stat for a level 19 Tyrogue may increase your chances of getting a Hitmontop when evolving to level 20. Good luck!

            thanks i didn't think been related would matter. And hitmontop will evlove when a tyrogue is bred from a hitmonchan and then evolved. And i have never seen the line "it's brimming with energy" before now.

              Tyrogue evolves into Hitmontop when it's defense and attack are equal, check any Pokemon information site. I haven't seen "brimming with energy" before either...

                Yes, it happens with everyone. It has happened throughout all the games. Did that answer your question?

                  Gold and Silver were the first games to use an internal clock, and this was kept synchronised (i.e. so it would be at the correct time when you next played) by the internal battery in the game cartridge. In the time since Gold and Silver's release the internal batteries were drained completely; they lasted around seven years, if I remember correctly. The internal battery was also used to save the game to memory, and thus, because it was completely spent, the vast majority of Gold and Silver games are unsavable. This only happens if you have a save file on the cartridge, though; my Silver version hasn't had a save file on it for years, so it still works, as far as I know. 8D

                    I had the same problem with my game about two years ago and brought it to a game shop. They told me that the battery was completely drained and couldn't be fixed at all. I suggest if you still want to play the game, download a ROM because your Gold game is pretty much broken now.

                      Actually, it can be fixed. I made a guide somewhere.. I'll post it if I can find it, but for now here's another guide.. How to fix a pokemon G/S/C cartridge: the guide.

                          Sneasel is in the Ice Path (Cave after Mahogany) at night. It's in the basement floors. 1% on BF1, 5% on BF2, 10% on BF3.

                            From Bulbapedia:
                            In Pokémon Crystal

                            In the Japanese version of Pokemon Crystal, players could use the Pokemon Mobile System to obtain a GS Ball as an event item which they could take to Ilex Forrest. Using it at the forest's shrine would prompt an encounter where a wild Celebi could be captured. However, no equivalent event was ever offered to players of the English version of the game. Some game-enhancing devices, however, such as the GameShark, can be used to generate the GS Ball right in the player's bag in both languages.


                            Sorry to be the bearer of bad news D:, unless there is a GameShark for Roms....lol

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!
                              You could try the Missingno. trick to clone your Master Balls then catch it.

                              So... I'm a bit confused. My friend was looking at my Pokemon on my Silver version, when he noticed a little dot in my Feraligatr's, Espeon's, Ampharos' and Magmar's status page, at the end of the HP bar. I think I may have an idea of what it may be, but I'm not sure. Anyone happen to actually know what it means; I can't find the answer anywhere. XD;

                                A black dot on the status screen means that the Pokémon has been exposed to Pokérus.

                                    The officer in Cerulean was replaced by Jenny, and another Jenny was added to Vermilion City. I believe all other guards retain their old sprite.
