I'm becoming frustrated with this game, the hidden items in indoor areas seem dodgy and randomly don't appear due to glitches. Outdoor areas don't seem to have issues, though.

Is this supposed to happen? What's wrong with this game?
There are four things that could probably be wrong:
- You're using a dodgy FAQ
- You have a fake game
- You are still just looking in the wrong place
- You have already collected them and forgot about it

Those things aside, I wouldn't worry about any items there in the first place, they are all irrelevant to you, especially when berries exist.

I'm doing a challenge run in which I need to get an Oddish. And the closest ones are on the route right after Slateport city, so is there any way for me to get to Slateport City BEFORE doing the first gym?

    I don't think there is...
    You need to beat the first Gym so you can go to Dewford then Slateport.
    So, you can't go to Slateport before beating the first gym.

            I have both versions ,but no none of them have differences. It's like the same game ....
            So who can tell me all differences between them? Thanks for the answers from all of you :)

              The only difference is that you get different Pokemon in each one. Like not a huge difference, just a small one. Like FireRed you get Growlithe, LeafGreen you get Vulpix. Also, in LeafGreen you get Staryu. In FireRed you get Psyduck. I could be wrong. It's just Pokemon, though.

                I'm not trying to mini-mod, but I have a question instead.
                Is this a thread of FR vs LG or more like questioning the difference between versions?

                Biggest? Box art.

                Smaller differences are Pokemon.

                Think of it as more like a help thread. If someone has a question about 3rd gen games (e.g. 'Where can I catch ___', 'What's the difference between FR and LG', etc), then they can ask it here rather than make a new thread about it. It's also explained in the first post.

                (Also woah, thread is nearing 5 years of age.)

                  I've recently been hunting for Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon Sapphire and today I found a Shiny Rayquaza after only 2 hours of soft resetting.

                  It has the same nature as my Shiny Blaziken, the only other shiny I've obtained in this game, which I don't think much of. It's Sassy nature, a pretty bad nature to be honest. I encountered my Shiny Torchic about 2 hours after turning on my game as well, so maybe I just hit the same RNG Frame.

                  However, something else happened literally 30 minutes after encountering Shiny Rayquaza. I decided I had some time left, so I went to go soft-reset on Beldum. Maybe 10 minutes into turning on my game, Shiny Beldum. Guess what? Sassy nature as well.

                  Is there anything going on with my RNG Frames? 3 shiny Pokemon with the same nature, one of which found earlier than the others and couldn't possibly be the same. My battery is run dry, so maybe that helps. It all seems too convenient to be a coincidence.

                  I decided to drop the Shiny Sassy Beldum and start over because people might suspect I'm cheating and I assure you that I'm not. I don't even think I'll mention to other people that I found it simply because I don't want to seem like a cheater.

                  (I have a pretty odd history with the Sassy nature, actually. Back when I WAS a cheater and cheated the **** out of Pokemon Emerald, Emerald's shiny code forced Sassy nature every time. But I'm not cheating. I even have a video of me capturing Shiny Rayquaza; no cheating device)

                    I just caught a lvl 30 Magikarp. I want to evolve it into a Gyarados but I'm not sure how that works with the moves Gyarados learns from level 20 to 30. Will it learn those at lvl 31 or should I stick to my level 21 Gyarados?

                    If Magikarp evolves at Lv.31, he will not regain the moves he missed from those levels.

                    However you are able to re-learn those moves by a Heart Scale Move Tutor on Fallabor Town in RSE or Mushroom Maniac on Two Island in FrLg.

                      Hi

                      Im currently working on a "Hardmode" for Pokemon FireRed, and I have bumped into something. Im, of course, doing my best to make a progressive level increase, but.. well let me explain:

                      There is a pretty straight line to Misty, but then it looks like a path opens to "skip" a big part. Is it possible, after defeating Misty, to enter the Rock Tunnel, Underground path from Lavender to Celadon, enter the Team Rocket Hideout, continue to the Pokemon Tower, enter Silph Co. and then defeat Sabrina? Or am I missing out on an obstacle somewhere?

                        Sorry, I don't know that..

                        But I did wanted to ask that this "Hardmode" of yours ment that you get a team of 6 magikarps and try to play complete the game with them. While obviously not evolving them.


                        Sorry, I couldn't resist.

                          Hah, nah that would have to be an extra challenge the player chooses to do :P Im just increaseing levels and evolving stuff, although HardMode might sound a bit harsh.. Its just harder :)

                            You will have to go through SS Anne to get the HM01 Cut in order to get to the Rock Tunnel, as there's a cuttable tree that's blocking the path east of Cerulean. Other than that, yes, you can do all that (the HM Lt Surge's badge enables is the optional one: HM02 Fly, so you can potentially skip him for now).

                              Ow, you are right - I actually should've known that! Well that saves a big part of it :) What about Erika and Koga (or a visit to Fuschia)? Are they necessary for anything before Sabrina? And another thing - after Silph Co., is it possible to go straight to Giovanni without visiting Cinnabar (or Fuschia for that matter)?

                                Beating Erika and Koga isn't necessary to fight Sabrina, no. Erika, Sabrina and Koga can be fought in any order, if you don't mind the level of their Pokémon.

                                    I'm a new shiny hunter and I've been hunting on my Sapphire and Japanese FireRed for 2 months now and I so far have 4 shiny Pokemon: Blaziken, Rayquaza, Metagross, and Charizard.

                                    I want to go after Shiny Suicune and I haven't encountered Suicune yet. How would I go about doing this? Is everything about Suicune determined once I choose my starter? Is it determined when I find it? If so, what's the best way to look for a Shiny Legendary Dog in FR/LG? Thanks.

                                    In FireRed and LeafGreen, legendary dogs are encountered depending on the starter that you chose. If you selected Charmander, you'll meet Suicune. If you've chosen Bulbasaur, then you should run into Entei. If it's Squirtle, then you'll stumble into Raikou. d: Before you start encountering them, though, you'd have to help Bill start the Network Machine on Sevii Islands. Now, when you go back to Kanto, the dogs should be there. Only places that won't be able to find them are caves, tunnels, Power Plant, Cinnabar Mansion, and the Safari Zone. If you'd like to encounter the shiny versions of them, then I think you would have to keep soft resetting, just like with any other legendary. Good luck! (:

                                      Thank you. I know that the first time you encounter it, it will have the same IVs and other traits every other time you encounter it, so I can hopefully assume that the first time you encounter it determines everything. It's admittedly difficult to soft-reset on a roaming Pokemon because you don't know where it will spawn first and even if you do, you'll still have to chase it because it moves even after you save.

                                      I was hoping for some sort of strategy on how to go after it, but I'm not even sure about the basics of going after a 3rd Gen shiny roaming Pokemon and I can see you aren't either. I'll see what I can do.

                                        First thing you need to choose Charmander so your gonna go through with Suicune, Squirtle ? So beat the beast Raikou, And if you choose Bulbasaur so you can only encounter Entei,

                                        So first thing you need shiny Suicune, So first beat the league then going to 1 Island is correct so head there. Then help fixing the Machine, then go to Vermilion city and then go to any route connect with it (Or you can also go to other routes but avoiding Caves, tunnels, ,Power Plant, Safari Zone,Cinnabar Mansion will be not waste cause there aren't any chance catching the Dogs in these listed places) then just start walking in a random route then if nothing happen, so just take an action reply then walk to number of steps that the Action reply work of. Then start walking again then maybe maybe if you had some luck so you will catch it. But not sure that you will get a Shiny. just try this until you found it. And if you had enough luck so its possible to have a Shiny Dog. It can't be said that walking like this can give you a Shiny Pokemon but there aren't any way accepting cheat. And maybe doing this thing can't give you a Shiny but if you don't gonna give up so maybe you will able to catch a normal Dog. just try and don't give up ! (And remember if you want a Suicune so choose Charmander as starter.)
