IMPORTANT!! hint for Pokemon Ruby



NEVER turn off your game when saving!!! I did it once and it deleted my game! I did this because i read something online about pokemon cloning. DO NOT EVER TRUST IT!!!

Ya its only for Silver and Gold NOT crystal i once tried but they fixed that bug when they made Crystal. Same for Cloning items trick is red and blue but not Yellow. To do the Clone trick u first get 2 pokemon then if u want to clone a item with it equip it with something useful like master ball or rare candy. Then you save game. DEPOSIT pokemon. then Change boxes when it says saving dont turn off Thats when you turn off. Turn back on you should have your pokemon in your Bag then check your box it should be last one. for Multiple Clones do same thing just put 2,3,etc in box so best to always make sure its a empty box

actually, that was a glitch that actually worked in pokemon generation 1 and 2 games. I remember in pokemon silver that you could clone legendaries. it was awesome. they fixed the glitch in pokemon gen. 3 though.
