Question for Pokemon Crystal

I do know that you get the unknowns from the ruins of alph, but I'm not sure where :s I'm thinkin' though that you get them on the weekend or whatever since channel 13.5 is only on on the weekends.(Channel 13.5 is on the poke'gear radio, the unknowns are talking or something.) But I also do not know WHERE in the ruins.

I've heard from people that if you spell out one of the legendary dogs names with the unknowns you'll be able to catch one easy. example- If you spell out R,A,I,K,O,U with the unknowns in your party (in order) you'll find him, same with Entei... I'm not sure if this works but I've heard it does. But my question is along the same lines as yours. I know that the unknowns are in the Ruins but I need to find out WHERE and HOW.

I haven't caught Raikou or Entei and I haven't even seen them once!!! I've searched through Johto several times and I still can't find them. So I figured if I caught the unknowns I'd be able to catch Raikou and Entei and eventually Ho-oh.

So pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez, all you Supercheaters help me!

Thanx everyone!! Supercheats rocks!

Okay, you sound really confused so let's start at the beginning.

The radio frequency, apart from being a really creepy sound, does nothing whatsoever.

You are right about the unowns being letters, but they can't be caught in order to spell something and catch that pokemon. I've caught all the letters and once you do this you talk to the dude in the house/lab thingy inside the area with the ruins. He tells you that you can use the machine in the corner to print out pictures of the different unowns using a gameboy printer that you hook up to your gameboy. You can use it to spell out your name or something, I dunno. There are people saying that you need all of the unowns or something to catch Celebi but I dunno 'bout that.

You don't need all the legendary dogs to catch Ho-oh for starters. You talk to that dude in Tin Tower and he will give you a rainbow wing once you have defeated the Elite Four and released to three legendary dogs from Burned Tower. You are, however, also sounding desperate about catching these dogs.

To catch them you need something with sweet scent, some repels and a lot of paitence, especially if you've seen the dogs before, cause that makes them harder to catch. Try to trap the dogs between Mahogany Town and the Lake of Rage, use the repels then use sweet scent. It may take a while but with luck, you'll catch the slippery buggers.

Hope you catch 'em soon! Good Luck!

Ok I have an awesome tip for catching raiku and entei. go and buy alot of repels they can be found at any pokemart. Now for my trick to work you need aleast two masterballs. use the duplicating cheat on your silver or gold and no it doesn't screw up your game.

Now once you have those go to route 38 it seems to be thier hot spot. It is the west gate leading to olivine. now you are going to want to use a repel and go in the upper patch of grass and just go back and forth and o ya make sure you have a pokemon higher than the levels of the wild pokemon there but not over level forty so you can run into the legendary dogs you wont run into any pokemon but them. every once and a while go back through the gate to ecruteak then back through the gate so you scramble them up. then surf the grass again. but you have to keep equipping repels as soon as they run out.

Hope I could help you
Good luck hunting.

Use repels to find the dogs, Raikou and Entei.
