This question is asked to anyone who has succeeded in getting all three starters without using any device other than one game system and one game. Could I get excact details on how you did it, because I have been trying this cheat that I found on this sites user submitted cheats section, but it hasn't worked for me, and I think it is just my timing. It would help alot. Also, is there any way aside from trading or using a device other than your game boy to get Pokemon such as steelix, gengar, machamp, porygon 2, and any other Pokemon that only evolve by trade, with or without a specific held item? It would reaaly help me complete my pokedex if I knew that information. Thanks to anyone who answers.
