Page 7, Pokemon Ruby Hints for Gameboy Advance
An easy way to get free items on Pokemon ruby(don't know if it works on sapphire too)is to catch a zigzagzoon at the beginning of the game as soon as you get the chance and keep it in your party. If you walk around a lot and check back often then he\she will most likely have items on it. You cannot equip anything to them if you want this cheat to work, but you can get anything from pokeballs to super potions this way. And a side note. It doesn't matter if your zigzagzoon evolves if the cheat worked in the first place. It will keep picking stuff up at random.
You don't get anything special for completing your pokedex or national dex you get a piece of paper saying you completd your national dex and the same thing for your hoenn dex.
I've organized a list of items you can steal from wild Pokemon with Thief or Knock Off
Blue Shard- Clamperl (1/48, give or take)
Yellow Shard- Chinchou (very rare)
Green Shard- Relicanth (rare)
Red Shard- Corsola (rare)
Heart Scale- Luvdisc (uncommon)
Dragon Scale- Horsea (rare), Bagon (rare/very rare)
Rawst Berry- Numel, Vulpix (sometimes)
Sun Stone- Solrock (rare/sometimes)
Moon Stone- Lunatone (rare/sometimes)(Lunatone are not found in Ruby)
Locations of above Pokemon:
Clamperl,Relicanth,Chinchou: all three are found outside the underwater entrance of Sootopolis
Corsola,Luvdisc: top of waterfall by Evergrande PokeCenter (fish)
Horsea: route with strong current west of Pacifidlog (fish with Good Rod)
Bagon, Solrock: Meteor Falls
Numel: Fiery Path and grass near it's ends (i think there's more)
Vulpix: Mt.Pyre (outside)
If you have groudon and you have solerbeam teach him solerbeam because his special power makes it sunny out and allows him to use solerbeam, an attack with 120 power and 100 accuracy with no downside to be instant intead of a two turn attack (this is especially usefull for when your opponent uses a water type pokemon).
Because I see this question so much, I'm going to post it here.
Bagon is found in a small room deep within Meteor Falls on Rte 114. It's also where you get TM02 (Dragon Claw). Bagon will appear at Lv:25, Lv:30, or Lv:35. You will need Surf and Waterfall to get there.
For all you feebas wanters, feebas only appears on six tiles out of hundreds of tiles. Its best to use a super rod.Catch about 5 Pokemon then move on.
There are t.v interviewers that give you fight on route 111 on the othere side of the rocks there names are gabby and t.y once you battle them you can do it again by going to mauville city and going left from the Pokemon centre and surfing accross.
And they will be there. Another time you can fight them is on route 120
It worked for me it's easier to raise Pokemon if you like to battle all the time.
If you have a code to change your players name, catch Pokemon with one name, and raise them with the other name, this way they will be getting boosted experience.
1. Bring a Pokemon that know sweet scent(eg:oddish)
2. Go to fiery path
3. Go in front of the second boulder you met
4. Use sweet scent untill you found a grey numel
5. Train it to level 30+
You can only do this if you have Pokemon colosseum a gamecube and a connecter to connect your gameboy to your gamecube now you can trade any Pokemon you want as long as they are not shadow Pokemon if you have it you know what I'm talking about you can also battle each other but thats something else you can only get hooh if you you purify all the shadow Pokemon you have
Start with mudkip and train him up 2 a good level.
Also catch a poochyena and evolve him to michyena, train him good to.
Do the first gym then catch a aron in the cave in dewford. Train him to about level 25.
Then go to slateport and do the stuff there
Catch a zangoose when you can and train him
Thwn catc a trapinch and evolve him to flygon
Catch groundon but done use master ball so you can replace the weakest of the above with reyquazza
Do it lol
Let the truth be known, it's easy to walk around and work up a pokémon in the Daycare center, but there is a downside to the hole Daycare all together, one reason is they don't teach your pokémon moves, they let them level up without deleting what you want gone of course, but some may thing it is easier, maybe it is, but if you want your pokémon the way you want it, work it up yourself, the Daycare isn't the correct choice, but it is alright to just mate your pokémon there, say you have a Ditto, place a pokémon with it and you get a egg, and then take out the pokémon that isn't a Ditto. It will do the Ditto no harm since all it learns and knows is Transform.
The following appear in Pokemon Ruby but not in Sapphire:
Latios (w/o using Southern Island)
Corsola can be caught by fishing on Rte. 128 and in the water in Ever Grande City with a Super Rod. If you're lucky, you may get one holding a Red Shard, which can be traded for a Fire Stone. If you're EXTREMELY lucky, you might even find a Blue Corsola!
Go to team magma base then keep worping untill you find 4 pokeballs.2 will be eletrodes,1 will be master ball and the other 1 will be pp max.
Works on ruby,sapphie and emerald.
To catch rayquaza without the master ball I got him in the red zone health then I got a Pokemon with a move that raises your chances of your opponent missing E.G. Double team,sand attack Etc,Etc.then I waited a couple of turns then I used a Timer Ball which you can get in rustboro city.I had to buy 10 though.i also saved before hand. Good luck future Pokemon Masters.P.S. I'm not lying because I used Master Ball on Groudon by accident.
This "cheat" worked for me but unless you do it pricesley it will not work.
Catch groudon and don't train it or it's attacks become to strong, battle registeel and use earthquake.
If done right this should make ta hp level of registeel barely unseeable and hopefuly it will use it's superpower (weakening it) enough that you can catch it with one great or ultra ball.
Congrats you have a registeel.
P.s: preferably a great ball.
1. If you get exp.share put it on a Pokemon then use the Pokemon that has it on you get double the exp from the Pokemon that your vs if you don't belive me vs a roseala a wild roseala give your Pokemon 250.
Most of you probably don't realize that Pokemon will not be as strong if you raise them mainly by daycare. The daycare teaches the pokemon's gained-by-level moves randomly, and it's best if you chose them instead. Also, a Pokemon will not evolve in daycare. When a Pokemon doesn't evolve, it may not learn moves that it should've learned at it's evolved forms. So basically, it's ok to train a Pokemon in the daycare, but they may be weaker than usual. Be wise with your Daycare choices,
Well, To catch one of the birds easily, Is by encountering it once around where sootpilis city(sp?) and where you face the elite four. Once you do that, Latios Or Latias keeps changing for every step you make, So just pull out your pokedex and search for it in the search system thingy.
Hope this helps,
