As far as I can remember you can't clone Pokemon here in this game. Only in G/C/S and Emerald.

I think you have to beat the elite four and go to one of those islands.then you take your Pokemon to a nursery or put them in a breeding crate.

Nooblets you CAN (!!) clone Pokemon in red. You use the same method for yellow and blu also:
1. Put the Pokemon you want to clone in a pc box
2. Exit the pc
3. Save
4. When it asks you to save, say yes
5. When it says Now saving, turn it off (;D)
6. Turn on you're game. Check you're party and then the box. I havent played in ages so it might not work.
When it saves give it a second then turn off; don't do it immediately.

If you give a Pokemon an item eg Masterball you can clone that to I think
Test it frst with a weedle or something crappy to make sure it works; don't try o clone your masterball then it turns out to f**k up your game.
Happy Cloning!

Hang on; you tried a cloning method that doesn't work, it erased your game so now you have to start it all over again and that's a bad thing because?

It can work, but it's risky. If you get the timing off, you can lose the pokemon or your save file. But if you get the timing JUST right, it does work.

I don't appreciate being called a nooblet when the one doing the calling doesn't know Pokemon can't hold items in Red.

The saving tone is how you time when you turn it off. When the last tone strikes turn it off. Duh duh duh dun du-du off.

I don't know how old this post is. Cloning was possible in R/B/Y BECAUSE of interuptions in the save process. There is a lot of online literature for it nowadays on wiki.

You can NOT clone Pokemon on red/blue/├Żellew, because there is no "move pokemon" option, only deposit and withdraw. Therefore your party Pokemon and box Pokemon can't be viewed in one menu, so the transision is directly done, and not still in progres when you turn off the power halfway the saving proces. I've just tried it, it doesnt work.

most people dont go around asking people to trade and if you are like me you only have one. most people dont have gameboys anymore much less the long ones from early gameboys. plus i cant get any newer ones like ds games because my little sh** of a brother threw my ds at the wall.

So get anothing gameboy and a link cable and do it yourself.

once me and my friend were trading, and his game shut off mid trade and we ended up accidentally cloning a weezing

Actually you can clone the same way as GSC, but its harder cause when you select the box you have to turn off the game right away.

Most complicated way ever but is possible but not through rby you have to trade your Pokemon to gsc then clone them thee and without changing the Pokemon moves give one back to ryb no items on the Pokemon and it is a way to get unattainable Pokemon in your gold silver crystal (ie mewtwo) and not loose them.

That's how I'd do it.

I did this for years and also just now (cloning Mew) it works fine for me on red. I have found it only erases the Pokemon or (and most commonly) puts it back in my party if I get the timing wrong.
