Pokemon Red Hints for GameBoy
Bulbasaur: will be able to handle the first three gyms easily, however after that he's basically useless, and one hundred percent replaceable with nidoking or something like that. An advanced player ought choose bulbasaur, as he would be the most difficult to use constantly throughout the game. Alot of Pokemon will be super effective to it, (fire, flying, ice, poison, bug, ground and psychic (because bulbasaur is grass poison throughout evolution)) and is only super effective to water, ground, rock, and grass. Not a very good trade off, an advanced player will have no problem using this Pokemon, as s/he will have no problem balancing out the team since s/he should know the way types effect other types and s/he should know how to balance teams without a problem or even needing to look it up really..
Charmander: he will be a difficult starter to use from the beginning, but will be superb later on, an intermediate player Should chose a charmander as he can learn dig early on, (in Cerulean to be exact) and thus, can easily conquer Lt. Surge's gym. After that everything is practically a piece of cake, since he will be able to be taught a vast variety of techniques through TM's and HM's. Now, even though charmander is my personal favourite for nostalgic reasons, he is not the Pokemon I recommend primarily for strategy. That Pokemon is:
Squirtle: an easy start. Capable of dominating the first gym, catch an oddish and the next gym is out of the way. Diglet, BAM, Lt.Surge is out of the way, and like previously mentioned with Charmander, the rest is a cake walk. Now why is squirtle better in the long run you may be asking? Well, he will be able to dominate the rival's bulbasaur (teach him ice beam (gotten from the thirsty girl on top of the celadon dept. Store)). Not only is this an advantage when battling your rival, squirtle will have no problem decimating Bruno, and Lance, single handedly (when fully evolved of course and at around lvl 50)with a team like Jolteon, Blastoise, Hypno/Gengar, the league (and rival) will be no problem! Loreli: use jolteon Bruno: use blastoise, Agatha: use hypno/gengar, Lance: use jolteon for gyarados, and blastoise for the rest, and use a mix for the rival.
^^^I STRONGLY RECOMMEND USING SQUIRTLE AS A STARTER: FOR THOSE ABOVE GIVEN REASONS^^^
Its not a glitch. Frist you need a couple of repels,level 25 or higher Pokemon and it's located in the digglet tunnel. U first don't use a repel if you want then,uuse the level 25 or higher if not you will probly meet a level 24 digglet. Now you shearh on the beneth the exit then you just walk around until a dugtrio appiers now you must have a gloom on level 26 or higher use another Pokemon my advice is not to use charmelon, nidorino because I tried that dig is super effective so use if you want it's your choice when that one faints pick gloom use sleep powder about 3 or more times then use a couple of poke`balls or great`balls and boom you caught it! Make sure that it has about less than 12 hp means health points
THE ELITE FOUR:
Pokemon TYPE: Ice
Pokemon: Dewgong lv. 52 ; Slowbro lv. 52 ; Lapras lv. 54 ; Cloyster lv. 51 ; Jynx lv. 54
HOW TO WIN: Zapdos is the Pokemon to use here. Use thunder on Dewgong, thunder on slowbro, thunderbolt twice on Lapras, thunder on Cloyster, then switch to Moltres (or Charizard if you have him) and use flamethrower on Jynx. When you win, you get a little over $10,000 for winning. Then move on to Bruno after you do necessary healing, switching etc. Switch your leader to Dragonite then head on to Bruno's room.
Pokemon TYPE: Rock/Fighting
Pokemon: Onix lv. 51 ; Hitmonchan lv. 53 ; Hitmonlee lv. 53 ; Machamp lv. 56 ; Onix lv. 54
HOW TO WIN: Using your Dragonite, surf on both onixes, they will go down in 1 shot. Use wing attack on the remaining 3 pokemon. Machamp will require 2 wing attacks. You will get your money after defeating Bruno. Use necessary potions and put Alakazam in the leader slot.
Pokemon TYPE: Ghost/Poison
Pokemon: Gengar lv. 54 ; Golbat lv. 54 ; Arbok lv. 56 ; Gengar lv. 58 ; Haunter lv. 53
HOW TO WIN: Use psychic on the Gengars and Haunter. Don't even mess around with the Golbat and Arbok. Use Zapdos's thunder on them to kill them in one shot. They can poison you and that's not good at all. Use necessary potions and switch your leader to Zapdos.
Pokemon TYPE: Dragon
Pokemon: Gyrados lv. 56 ; Aerodactyl lv. 58 ; Dragonair lv. 54 ; Dragonair lv. 54 ; Dragonite lv. 60
HOW TO WIN: This guy is hard. Kill his Gyrados in 1 shot with a thunder from Zapdos. Kill his Aerodactyl by using Kadabra/Alakazam's shadow ball until Aerodactyl is at about half life. Then use Psychic and he should be through. I don't know what to say about the Dragon types, but to use brute force and knock them down little by little. Don't use a fire type for the dragonairs because they know surf. But I suggest using a hyper beam when you get the Dragonite down to half life. You should be able to get by with thunderbolts and thunders on the Dragonairs. Lance will admit defeat and almost crown you Pokemon League Champion. Then he mentions that someone did it before you and his name is GARY! You're not done yet, you have one more challenge. Use potions as needed and prepare yourself for the hardest battle yet.
Pokemon TYPE: All/Against you
Pokemon: Pidgeot lv. 61 ; Rhydon lv. 61 ; Alakazam lv. 59 ;
IF YOU HAVE A CHARIZARD: Blastoise lv. 65 ; Exeggutor lv. 63 ; Arcanine lv. 61
IF YOU HAVE A BLASTOISE: Venusaur lv. 65 ; Gyrados lv. 61 ; Arcanine lv. 63
IF YOU HAVE A VENUSAUR: Charizard lv. 65 ; Gyrados lv. 63 ; Exeggutor lv. 63
HOW TO WIN: Thunder his Pidgeot, Surf his Rhydon, Flamethrower his Alakazam. Here's where your birds take a huge role. If you have a Venusaur, send out either Dragonite or Articuno and water down that Charizard. If you have a Blastoise, get out your Moltres and use the most powerful fire attack you have on the Venusaur. If you have a Charizard, get out your Zapdos and use thunder on the Blastose. Use a fire attack on Exeggutor and your special attack on Arcanine after it's life is below 3/4.
Try to lower the Legendary Pokemon to barely any, but try not to make it faint.
Next, use a move that will make the Legendary Pokemon Fall asleep.
Next, use Ultra Balls to try to catch the Legendary Pokemon.
If the Legendary Pokemon wakes up, make it fall back asleep and continue to use Ultra Balls.
Hey guys here is how to make Missingno. STRONG!
1. Buy an Iron
2. Clone it ( I will not explain so read on of the countless Missingno. Cheats everyone submitted)
3. Catch Missingno. With a Poke Ball
4. Give Missingno. A bunch of Irons until he can't have any more
5. Sell the rest of the Irons
There you go! A very strong Pokemon!
Lets Start with ='M= he doesn't make the game glitch like some people say if you find him or put this cheat on the game shark 0100D8CF and it will appear in a grass or cave etc. if you do catch him he can learn any move i taught him fly then gave him a rare candy and it evolved to a kangaskhan now i have a kangaskhan that can fly and missingno is the same thing so if ppl tell you its gonna mess up your game that's not true.
you must have an abra go to vidrien city then go south
use cut go in the house talk to the kid with the gameboy then he will give you mr. mine
To caatch this pokemon surf to Cinnibar island then right and surf again. When you get to an island with a cave on it go inside follow the ladders until there is a hole you will go surfing automatically into the cave current you go through another ladder then surf up there is an island with a bird on it it is the legendary bird Articunio.
Go to Mt.Moon and go to floor two.Go to were you get the fosils but before you get to were that weird guy is standing go to the rite into an alcove hit the wall and press "A" .Now you have a new stone. "DRAGONMASTER372...OUT"
If you did the Mew cheat as it should clearly show you how in the cheat section somewhere then hopefully you wouldn't pass up the opportunity to train it and make it UNSTOPPABLE TO ALL WHO OPPOSE YOU!
First let's step back to when you got Mew or a little later
Ok if you go through the game then get tm's 13, 24, 26, and 29(clone them with the missingno. Cheat first though(info in cheat section)
If your the type that loves hyper beam then do the missingno. Cheat on your nugget you'll get about 150 but sell 99 because the guy won't give you anymore money after sell 49-50 nuggets or till you have one left clone it again and sell til you have $999999 go get coins (7500) the get hyper beam and teach it to mew
Any ways after Mew has psychic, earthquake, icebeam, and thunderbolt
Make sure he's in the high 50's -100 range
To beat loreli
Then bruno's real easy
Then went agatha
Just use psychic to win
Couldn't get any simpler
Last went lance?
Use icebeam, you win
Say wat?! Another challenge?
You beat the elite 4 congrats
Beware the game doesn't save so you'll have to wait until the credits finish or youll end up where you last saved
After the credits enter your house heal your pkmn then save
When performing the missingno cheat you may notice a guy stood near cinibar gym if you get of your Pokemon right in front of the gym door the man will warp onto the gym roof it is really wierd because when it happens it looks as if he is meant to be a guard or something! Note:(you must not have the key in your inventory)
All trademarks of the wierd guy on the roof are owned by me and my friend!
This may be subject to copyright.
you have to have the swim cabability. first put a rare candy as your SIXTH item. then fly to Veridian. Then talk to the guy that teaches you how to catch a pokemon and listen to what he has to say. then right after he finishes fly to cinnabar island, walk to the right side of the island and swim up and down the side not going all the way down. after a while MISSINGNO. should appear. he could be in between the levels 0 and 142. so make sure your pokemon are strong.you can catch it but it will gradually release the pokemon that you have captured. if you catch a level 0 you can give it a rare candy and it will evolve into a level 1 Kanguskan. also when you are swimming up and down watch out for the gardian pokemon because they are very strong.
NOTE:To change color you need a GBC or GBA
To change color press up on your pad then it will go RED
To change color press down on your pad then it will go ORANGE
To change color press left on your pad then it will go BLUE
To change color press right on your pad then it will go GRREN
Talk to the man who teaches you to catch Pokemon then fly directly to cinnabar surf along the very edge only.
When you see a missingno you now have infinite of the item in your 6 slot WARNING do not catch Missingo it may currupt your file however if it doesnt it will evolve into a kangaskan that knows fly also you may find Pokemon over lvl 100 such as mewtwo snorlax chansey possibly a Mew (very rare) and many more.
First you must of not beat the youngster who has the slowpoke when you are going to bills house(in the beginning) or the gambler between celadon and lavender. And you must have fly, and you need a weak Pokemon to weaken mew.
You also need ultra balls and(if needed a masterball) Go through the underground passage between celadon and lavender,stop right there when you get out,save the game, after walk one step down and immediatley press start.
(If you did this right the gambler shouldnt of notice you.) Go to a Pokemon with fly and fly to cerulean city.notice that start doesnt work. Walk up the nugget bridge and find the bow with the slowpoke. Beat his slowpoke. (start will work again.) fly to lavender town.
Walk to the passage to the left. Your start menu will appear. DO NOT SAVE THE GAME. Instead press b. A level 7 Mew will attack you. Once your done save the game. Good luck
You know what MissingNo is? Hes not a glitch! There are 256 possibilities in the Pokedex, so since there are only 151, MissingNo is for replace there other slots (MissingNo -> Missing Nummer)! You can catch, theres no problem, it will only mess your Hall of Fame, but who cares about that?? 'M, now he really is a Glitch, don't catch it!! (Hes also known as Glitch Block).. You can use the 129 itens cheat with MissingNo, no problem..
The Pokemon programers forgot to define whos Pokemon could appear in MissingNo spot, so there can appear Glitches ('Ms and over 100 lvl pokemons)..
There are even Ghost, Kabutops and Aeorodactyl fossils MissingNo, your name defines that...
Stupit Glitches and Tricks, huh?
I swear that this is real. To find all the starters, use this name (I can't write the female sign on this computer, so it's represented by +. But + really means the female sign.): A+(+u+k
That name is case-sensitive, by the way.
If you make it all caps, you'll see wild abras and kinglers instead of Porygon and Charizard.
When you get to pick a Pokemon from Oak, choose Squirtle because you can't catch wild blastoise with this cheat. You will have no trouble against the first gym with this pokemon.
When you get to cerulean city, heal at the Pokemon center. If you have 6 Pokemon in your team, deposit the weakest one. Then go up to the bridge to fight the rival and the 5 trainers (you can heal if necessary). After beating the rocket, hold up button until you hit the ledge. Then hold left until you're hitting the cliff. Then go down into the patch of grass. Make sure the trainer in the grass doesn't see you. Look in the grass until you see Abra. Throw a pokeball at it. If you're lucky, it will be caught. Teleport back to the Pokemon center. Go up the bridge again. At the other end of the bridge, walk to the left so you're just above the water. Walk left so you're 1 step to the left of the corner of the water and 1 step above the corner. Save now, because it gets tricky and you WILL NOT be able to save for a short while.
Now, go 1 step down and hit "start". Go to "Pokemon", choose Abra, and use Teleport. If you did it right, the other trainer will get a ! Over his head then you will fly away. Now, go to the gym. Walk on the dock so the first swimmer sees you and comes to fight. Beat him, then leave the gym. Walk onto nugget bridge, You will see a Mew at level 7!!! Unlike all the other Mew tricks, this one really works!!!
Just play through the game until you have the Master Ball, Strength, Surf and Fly. Fly to Celadon City and buy 5 poke dolls from the big mart. Fly to Pallet Town and surf to Cinnabar Island. Go in and back out the Pokemon center. Fly to Viridian city. Move the Master Ball to the sixth slot in your team. Talk to the man who shows you how to catch pokemon. Say "no" and watch him catch weedle.
Fly to Cinnabar Island. Go to the right edge of the water and surf up and down the very edge of the island. You will see Porygon, Charizard and Venusaur at level 245. Use poke dolls on them, you have no chance in a fight. Wait until you see a Pokemon that is a staticky block called "Missingno." or "-M-" Use a pokedoll. Now you will have 9 master balls. The symbol means 12.
You have 129 master balls! Now you can catch the level 245 Pokemon and have Blastoise, Mew, Porygon, Charizard and Venusaur. You can catch the legendary bird Pokemon in the Power Plant east of Cerulean, the Victory Road, and in the Seafoam islands. There will be a maze to get to them, but once you find them you can catch them with master balls!
To get Mewtwo, beat the Elite Four (it's easy with a level 245 Charizard!) then go to Cerulean (Cerulean is a hotbed for catching rare pokemon. Don't ask why.) There is a cave a little to the west (not mount moon). Go in and it will be a big maze with level 50+ Pokemon, even ones that are only in the safari zone! Go through the maze and eventually you will find Mewtwo. Use a master ball.
Follow these tips and you will have 9 super-rare pokemon!
More fun stuff (Warning. These may mess up your game):
Take the name A+pk+mn+? to find wild Proffesor Oak, Gary and Rocket!! By pk and mn, I mean the symbol with 2 letters in 1 that you can get in your name. By +, I mean the female sign.
Take the name A.w.x.y for wild pokemon that are undead!!! Their names will be "Missingno." and catching them messes up your graphics, but they look like ghosts and skeletons!
To get these wild pokemon, use the "talk to Weedle catcher, Surf on right of Cinnabar Island" trick. If you try to catch wild Proffessor Oak, Gary or Rocket, it's not my fault if your game messes up (One thing that always messes up is hall of fame. It will say you used people and glitches to beat the Elite Four).
First you have to get an Articuno(On the Seafoam Islands)then get the TM for blizzard from the Seafoam islands and teach that to Articuno, then you have to beat the first three Elite four guys, then when you get to Lance, use all your other pokemon(Make sure you have some revives to revive them later to face you know who)first to defeat as much of Lance's Pokemon as you can, then get out Articuno use blizzard on the rest of Lance's Pokemon and there you have it.
IF you beat the youngster with the slowpoke and the gambler well your in luck. If you still havent beat the guy who says I saw your feat from the grass this cheat is for you. Have an abra with teleport. GO to the guy and press start befor he sees you. Teleport.Now go to Misties gym and battle the first trainer. MAke sure he/she walks to you. Battle and win. Use teleport. Walk to nugget bridge. Your start menu will pop up. Press b and battle/catch him
Do the Missingno. Cheat to get more items, except on Tm's like Ice Beam, Thunderblot, etc., items like Carbos and Protein and others and Rare Candies. Get the best Pokemon to a level you like(50-60) and the best Tm moves. Give them the up items(Carbos,etc.) and there you go, ultimate pokemon.
