The sprite thing is normal, oddly enough. :( And the Pidgeotto is rare, but it's possible.

    It's a reference to the anime because that's where Ash caught his Pidgeotto.

    Btw, I left my shiny Gyarados and Ditto at the daycare in Crystal and when I talked to them, the message said 'It's brimming with energy.' Does that mean there's a really high chance of them producing an egg or does it mean something else?

    I believe it means that they won't breed - that message usually is for related Pokemon (e.g. parent and offspring) though so unless you bred another shiny gyarados with that ditto... but some searching seems to suggest that brimming with energy means they will not breed, certainly.

      I think it they won't breed because of level difference, right? o.0
      I know Pokemon surely won't breed if level gap is way too high.

      It's got nothing to do with level difference either actually. Pokemon don't care about that! But I have never had that result come up. You might consider checking the FAQ/Breeding help sticky (or whatever it's named). There's a big post about breeding in GSC in that thread. However, I don't think it ever got completed so I'm not sure if it'll mention that.

        But my friend asked me this just a second ago and I don't know the answer (Dx):
        She knows that Ice beam, Thunderbolt, and Flamethrower are all TMs in R/B/Y, but are they TMs in the Metal versions? She said her TM 13 was Snore instead of Ice Beam like usual.

          I checked the FAQ and it turns out they can't breed. Did I mention that the Ditto is shiny as well? I guess it's impossible to breed two shinies together.

            Try it with a normal Ditto. I guess you were trying to make it a higher chance of the offspring being shiny? IIRC there's still a huge chance of them being shiny if only one parent is.

            EDIT: Hold on, there wasn't a personality value in that Gen, so the only way the game would know if Pokemon were related is the two inherited stats, and seeing as both of those have to be 10 to get a shiny, it does make sense that shinies can't breed.

                Hey, i have an emulator on my smartphone, in which i've recently installed pokemon yellow.
                And i have an annoying problem; when i've filled up my box nr. 1, i switched to box nr. 2, but when i've catched one pokemon it says the box is full.

                Timbjerr suggested it were a emulator problem, as i only can load a game from the emulator, and not the game itself.

                Is there anything i can do besides moving all my pokemon to another box, all the time?

                ..And why can't i find the pokeball with evee in it?

                Since it is an emulator problem, you're going to have to ask in the emulator section. This thread is for questions on the games themselves.

                    Middle entrance and you'll need Waterfall and Strength from what I can remember.

                      You will also need surf and yes, strength and waterfall are needed.

                        My questions now are: 1. Where can you check happiness? and 2. Can pokemon (such as Golbat) evolve once they get a level up after maxing friendship or is it only at levels 20 and 40?

                        EDIT: again this is in Crystal

                          OK, so in my Gold, do you know where I can find high LVL pokemon between LVL30-LVL40? I need to grind against the Pokemanz so I can beat the Elite 4 .

                          I suppose this is for the first time against the E4..anyways, Victory Road I suppose is the best place, and you can always try to rematch people via the phone system too (but I think in GSC you can only battle them if they call you rather than the other way around?).

                            A women in a house Northeast of the bike shop in Goldenrod City will rate the happiness of a Pokemon. As far as I know, the Pokemon will evolve after their happiness level gets above 220.

                              Afternoon, I was wondering if you're able to trade over some Pokemon from r/b/y such as Charizard who in g/s/c can learn the TM fire punch then send it back to r/b/y or is that restricted? Thanks.

                                That's fine, as long as the move you teach it is in RBY, it doesn't matter if it's a TM in them or not.

                                    On Yellow is Geodude worth training up?

                                    Thanks.

                                      Well, I don't see why not. In the older games while there's still a level of strategy involved in choosing your pokemon team, it mostly applies to the new games because people now battle competitively and there's a whole lot of different variables to take into account. You still need to beat in game opponents in yellow but for the most part you can tough it out with just about any pokemon really, besides the infamous magikarp with splash maybe.

                                      Of course that's implying geodude is completely useless, which I don't personally think he is. He evolves into graveler and you have an arsenal of ground type moves at your disposal. I don't know exactly what types are weak against ground but they're obviously are some so of course he's worth training if you want him or one of his evolutions, the other of which includes golem. However you need to trade graveler in order to get golem, and I'm not sure if you'd be able to do that. If so great for you because you would have just gotten one of my personal favorite pokemon.

                                      Which is funny because I secretly despise geodude for popping up so much in almost every cave imaginable.

                                      It is worth training up because Golem has immense power :3

                                      However obviously you need to be able to trade... If not then yes, it is pointless.
