It's only on Mt. Pyre, I'm afraid. It's got a really low encounter rate too, so if you want one, you may be searching a long time. :( btw, it's on the outer grassy area of Mt. Pyre, not the inside.

    I want to get my Feebas to max beauty but the good berries that make the grade B indigo poke blocks I can only seem to get from the berry master. If I fast forward the date on my calendar on my computer will I be able to keep getting berries if I'm playing a rom?

      Hey guys, my name is Padfoot and I started playing pokemon emerald again today and I need to know if my team sounds good. (In final evolution form). I'm trying to use pokemon I've never used before or often.
      Blaziken: Fire/Fighting
      Altaria: Flying/Dragon
      Cacturne: Dark/Grass
      Claydol: Ground/Psychic
      Wailord: Water or Walrein: Ice/Water
      For my final team member I couldn't decide what to do so I came up with some options
      Swalot: Poison
      Metagross: Steel
      Zangoose: Normal
      Manetric: Electric
      Exploud: Normal
      Help me Please!

        For your final pokemon I would choose between Metagross, Zangoose, and Manetric, as poison isn't a very good type(Swalot), and I've never really liked Exploud.

        Metagross has very good stats and can learn a lot of good moves such as meteor mash and earthquake. However, you can't get it until very late in the game, and when you do, you have to level it up a ton until it actually becomes useful. If you're planning to take on the Frontier with this team, I would definitely go for it, as I used it on my Battle Frontier team which was able to win me all seven silver symbols. However if you just want to play through the regular game, then I would go with one of the other options.

        Zangoose isn't obtainable without trading from Ruby in Emerald, so if you can't do that, he isn't an option. However, if you can get him, I would make him your first choice, since with one or two swords dances under his belt and a STAB slash and quick attack, he can sweep most boss trainers in the game. He also is very cool looking.

        Manetric IS obtainable very early on, and has decent stats. His electric typing will also be useful to you in fighting the Champion, the eight gym, and is just a generally good type all around.

        As for the Waillord/Walrein dilemma, I would go with Walrein, since having a good ice beam on the team somewhere helps a lot, and you don't have anyone else who can use it on your team. (except maybe Claydol or Altaria, I'm not sure. Either way, Walrein gets STAB).

        I'm not the best at team help, but if you need a good Water-type I'd recommend Staryu which evolves into Starmie, which has really high Speed and Special Attack, and with a decent moveset of Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam and Thunderbolt (all of which are TM/HM moves) it'd be able to destroy quite a few opponents in the game. And all you need to evolve Staryu is a Water Stone, Starmie is one of those good Water-types to use ingame so put it into consideration.

        With that moveset alone, Starmie can actually cover a whole load of types.

          Same as any Pokemon game, you have a 1/8192 or 0.01% chance of finding one. Since Emerald has no way of raising the chances like later games, I say good luck to you my good sir. And a type, the RNG is broken in the game, so unless you have incredible luck or you RNG Abused your ID and SID before hand, you will never be able to soft reset for a legendary or any other gift/stationary Pokemon.

            This probably isn't the best place to ask but I didn't want to make a new thread for it; I'm dying to find some experience codes (GS/AR/CB) for FireRed in Japanese (in english is also welcome, all I can ever find is wild pokemon modifiers). Other things like money or items are secondary, I need fast exp. Thank you for your time?

            Alright, Battle Arena is really getting annoying now...
            In my last battle, their 3rd pokémon was a Parasect, which won on referee's decision due to greater health against my Swampert.
            However, against my Latios it used Spore twice and Double Team once. Latios attempted Dragon Claw twice (healed from Spore the first time).
            So Latios was left with full health, Parasect had less, although it had recovered some with Leftovers.
            Latios won Mind, Parasect won Skill, fair enough. But Parasect won body? I don't understand this, as Parasect had <100% hp, Latios had 100%. So how did Parasect win? Anyone care to explain?

            Body is calculated by (((HP remaining at end)*100)/(starting HP)).

            Because Parasect gained HP and Latios stayed the same, it would have had more points.

            Sorry to say you'll just have to Google it. It's against GPGD rules to give out AR codes. ;(

              Broken it's really simple if you want a starter or regular pokemon just go to options<emulator<activate speed up on toggle or whatever its called then just search around for the pokemon you want if you don't find one you could always use cheats.

                Hi guys and gals,

                So, finish my exams soon and I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I want to complete a 3rd Gen game and I am like 5 away from doing the NON National Pokedex on Sapphire and wanted to know if it was worth pushing on with it or not? In the past I've completed Crystal and Red so I know a lot of effort is required (Pokedex wise) I know in Pokemon Colosseum you get most 2nd Gen Pokemon. I have all summer to do this and will have money to buy anything necessary. (I don't know if it is possible to complete any 3rd Gen game without Colosseum or Gale of Darkness)

                Games I have:

                Sapphire
                Ruby
                Fire Red
                Leaf Green
                Emerald

                I also have a Gameboy Player for my GameCube and a GBA Link Cable. (I don't currently own Colosseum)

                I recommend getting Colosseum and XD GoD as they are great games. Also you won't finish the national dex without Ho-oh and Lugia, which nowadays, can only be obtained in those games in gen III (they used to be able to be obtained through a Nintendo Event, but that is long gone).

                  Hi everybody,

                  After much deliberation, I decided to play FireRed/LeafGreen instead of the original games. I think the remakes are much better. I like the Vs. Seeker because I can get money and exp through it, and battling trainers is fun.

                  I have several Pokémon in mind and I'd like to know what nature they should be and a good moveset for them. I want to get them early on if possible, so I think I'll have to train more than 6 Pokémon.

                  I understand that Effort Training is a good thing if you want your Pokémon to be strong. I'll get the Macho Brace. Is there a way to know which Pokémon/trainers give which EV, and what are good starting stats/nature for the 150 original Pokés?

                  Some Pokés I had in mind:
                  Snorlax
                  Arcanine
                  Muk/Weezing
                  Hypno (I can't get Alakazam though I'll look into simulating a trade through action replay if I can, is it possible?)
                  Exeggutor
                  Starmie
                  Lapras
                  Dragonite
                  Oddish
                  Mankey
                  Dugtrio
                  Nidoqueen/Nidoking (I don't know which one is the best)

                  I'd gladly get a Haunter if I could make it evolve. Same for Alakazam.

                  Now I'm wondering which starter to pick, I want it to be good for his type, and good against E4.

                  I'll grow berries, do EV training once I understand it, and try to find good movesets for Pokémon but I need some help.
                  I plan on starting a new game tomorrow so I need to choose my starter.

                      First of all you have to beat the sevii island quest, next you can go to the elite four.

                          welp, I'm not even sure I remember correctly, so I'll just leave you with a walkthrough of the game so you know what you missed at some point!

                            Quick question, what's a good nature for a Venusaur with a standard moveset such as Sleep Powder Razor Leaf Leech Seed and Synthesis?

                            Well, I'm assuming you're not battling competitively/EVing seeing as you have only 1 attack. I'd go for one of the +Special Attack natures (Modest / Quiet - the other two reduce your defenses), a +Defence / Special Defence one (Bold / Relaxed / Calm / Sassy) or a neutral one (Hardy / Docile / Serious / Quirky / Bashful). Just don't reduce your Special Attack or your defences (See this link).

                            Hope that helps!

                              After many years of not really following Pokemon (the last game I have played is SoulSilver), and whilst in the process of a long-awaited clean out, I found my old Japanese Sapphire cartridge! Now this may not seem to exciting but I got an instant thought about the Pokemon I have on there!

                              I quickly hooked it up to my dusty GBA and loaded my save, which I was relieved was still there, and I look what I have found!

                              My old Ageto Celebi and Mew from my Japanese Emerald (the one you get from Faraway Island, which my friend from Japan got me during Pokemon Festa many years back.. 2005 I believe)

                              I am looking for my Japanese Emerald right now aha!

                              Obviously I am looking to transfer them over to current generations, would anybody be able to enlighten me on how to do this?

                              Firstly, you need a Nintendo DS or DS Lite. DSi or 3DS will not work as they do not have a GBA cartridge slot. You also need a 4th or 5th gen game for the Nintendo DS, i.e Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heart Gold, Soulsilver, Black/White or their sequels. You may need to pass some sort of requirement to migrate Pokemon to the newer games, in Diamond/Pearl you need to have beaten the Elite Four. I am not sure about other games as I have not played them. If you have fulfilled a requirement, turn on the Nintendo DS with both the DS Game and GBA Pak inserted. Run the DS game. When you get to the menu it should have Your Save, New Game Wifi settings and migrate Pokemon from Sapphire, which you click. It will warn you that your Pokemon cannot be returned to the gameboy, then select 6 Pokemon you wish to send to your DS game. You can only migrate once every 24 hours, and if you change the time on your DS the game will sync itself to that and reset the 24hr timer.

                              Once you have migrated your Pokemon, in my experience with D/P there is a location in game you must go to 'catch' your migrated Pokemon, in Sinnoh it is called the Pal Park. The pokemon are instantly caught in this artificial environment. When you catch them from Pal park they will be in a habitat that suits them, Celebi in the grass, water pokemon in the lake etc.

                              I hope this helps you migrate your Pokemon Also, I don't know if there will be compatibility issues with a Japanese GBA cartridge. Message me if you have questions or concerns Meteor

                                Any help is welcomed with open arms! Thanks!

                                I am a newbe so please go slow.

                                Also, I've told you this before, but please, when you have a question for a game of a specific generation, this being Advance Generation, you need to ask in that section's Q&A thread. I'm going to delete your post as spam next time.

                                I still dont understand, who is this guy I need to talk to, where is he?

                                If is not to much trouble can you dumb it right down? I am such a newbie---lol. Thank you!
