Ask.com and get


OK I have amasing news tere is a way to catch celebi with out a game shark/action replay or a glitch it will come out in the wild but the sucky part is that it's a 1 in 268,435,456 chance that it will apier and some pepole say that the chance gets higher if you take a surtin number of steps so if you want to give it a try celebi is at route 121 or 123 so good luck.

Great help for begginners

I am now a quite trained Pokemon trainer in sapphire. So I know a huge deal about the game. Ok begginners if you are searching for a great Pokemon at the beggining just choose any of the starters (i would recomend mudkip) and head for petalburg woods. When you reach there try catching slakoth. IT would be hard as it is rare. Once you have done it keep slakoth at the start and try to keep increasing it stats for 18 level. Then it will evolve into one of the powerhouses in the game vigorath. Just keep battling with it and I am sure you will find it easy to deafeat all the gym leaders (except for brawly as it has fighting type). Try it as slaking has to be the best Pokemon (after rayquaza) in the game having a base total of 670. The only one roblem of slaking is the damned traunt. Check my slaking level:82 HP:377 defence:201 sp.attack: 204 sp. Defence: 118 speed: 216. I hope you all like it. I deafeated the elite 4 and the champion with only my lv 82 slaking and lv 48 kyogre and 5 max.potions as slaking as too much hp.

Catching Feebas

'Ello! Draikfire here.

The thing is, Feebas is a rare Pokemon. A RARE Pokemon. Where do you catch it? It's in the river beside the Weather Institute. How? Surf on the water and use a Super Rod. But....you may be saying,"I've TRIED that!!"

Well, every 'square' on the river that you can fish in...well, only six have Feebas in them. The six random squares change every time the trendy saying in Dewford is changed. It's a lot of work, fishing square by square. But if you really want it....Good Luck!

.:Southern Island:.

Southern island does exist but only with an Action Reply or a GameShark.
Other than that it doesn't unless you have a Eon ticket that works.

Just in case.
To get to southern island you need to have the Eon Ticket which can be Obtained
With a Cheating Device or through a Event.
When you have the Ticket you go to LilyCove to the Harbor and talk to the Lady.
If she say's the same thing as all the time then the ticket didn't work and thus you need to activate it with a cheating device.

If it works she will say "Oh...that ticket" and she will walk into the Ship and out will come the Sailor and he will talk to you about an island know as Southern island and that he can take you there so you will go there.

When you get there just walk up to the entrance to the forest whatever it is.
In there you will see a Small Rock sorta egg shape and go to it and press "A".
Then you will hear a noise and down will come Latios if you have Sapphire and if you have Ruby down will come Latias and then you batttle them I think there Level 50 when you fight them there.

If you have an AR or GS and you have the Code to keep In-countering them you in the same spot.So if you have it on and you fight and capture the Latios or the Latias then press the "A" again on the rock and another one will come down.
I did this and I also had the Shiny Code on so I caught a bunch of Shiny Latios and traded them to people.

So yeah thats pretty much that.

Unlocking the SECOND door of the REGI caves!!! Amendment!!!

The way to unlock the regis is different in Emerald, so I have put the way to unlock them in the hint pages for that game! Go... Find!

This is an amendment to my previous hint on how to unlock the regis. This just tells you how to open the caves they are in... (after diving west of pacifidlog and using relicanth and wailord...) it just tells you how to unlock the second door in the 3 regi caves... You have to have already unlocked the first door...

Regirock (in the desert): read the braille. Go two steps right, two steps down and then use Strength.

Regice: (route 105, north of mauville on a sandbar) read the braille... Just wait. Don't move... Even if it takes a couple of minutes. Don't press any buttons. Then the door will open.

Registeel: (Route 120,west of Lilycove city) read the braille. Head to the exact center of the room and use fly.

By the way, another amendment... In Ruby/Sapphire, when you dive west of Pacifidlog, and use relicanth and wailord... Put Relicanth in 1st place in your party, and Wailord in 6th place... In Emerald, it's the other way around!

jirachi and deoxys

There is no way to find or catch a jirachi or deoxys without a code or an e reader or any other cheating device.

Trust me. I've tried all these ways. I've waited for 56 weeks to go to the moon and it didnt work. So, I also have a question. Have I missed anything, is it actually possible? Please tell me. I really want them.

catch a feebas the un - treecko ball way

I have tried everything. I've tried the torchic ball and treecko ball as the saying in dewford. But it never worked.

Anyway, as we do. We mix data with our friends so we can battle them anytime. I found out that when you mix data to saying doesnt change. The saying it stopped on was "noisy game" and I don't know if it always says that on people that have mixed data.

I went looking for a feebas, I started at the top of the waterfall and then went to the bottom. The second place I looked for a feebas it appeared.

Now some of you are going where? Where!??!? Well. When you go up the waterfall on route 119, you will see an acro bike path. Go up to the highest part of the water, without getting on the other side. So here -->>


Did that work? How bout this?

I don't know if you can post images but if you cant.. Well too bad. You don't get the picture. Here is the link if you can't see it. Http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u40/alec_94/feebas.jpg
The picture is the after you have turned around.

Now. Turn around an fish using the super rod. You should still be in the highest spot. Fish about 5 times, and if you don't see a feebas. I'm sorry I wasted your time, and better luck next time.

Best berries for contests and other stuff

Ok I'm here to tell you the BEST of the berries that you can get,most of them are from the berry master.

1.For beuty use the Hondew or Kelpsy berry, I suggest using the kelpsy berry cause it's very easy to grow and grows in 5. Use this for your Feebas, I got mine evolved when I used the kelpsy berry Pokeblock and it's beuty was near max and it was at 5 sparkles.

2.for smart use the Rabuta berry it works good

3.for cool use the Tamato berry or the Spelon Berry

4.for cute use the Mago berry
Tough I really Don't know but I only put the ones that are important.
Ok the spelon berry you can't get from the berry master but you can get it from his wife just tell her this pharse:Great Battle
This berry takes loads of time to grow so be patient
Thats all i'll find more stuff next time.

Thief TM hints and other stuff

Ok I'm here to give loads of hints to everyone that I found out and I've played the game for 90:45 after I beated the Elite 4 Ok here it goes.

1.Tm thief,alot you think it's worthless but it's not. IT IS VERY USEFULL. First of all once you get it I suggest that you save it after you beat the sixth gym leader. Once you saved it and beat the sixth gym leader go to the grass outside of the city which is to your right. Search around that grass and BOOM an Absol appears. Im not sure it will happen but try your luck He's on Route 120.Once you Catch it teach it Thief. If you despretly need a heart scale look around the waters where Ever Grande city is, Fish with the super rod and youll find a Luvdisc use thief on it and you'll get a Heart Scale. Keep doing this untill you get enough. Also once you unlock Battle Tower you can use thief one one of them and you get leftovers.

2.The best starter for the WHOLE game is Torchic cause when you fight the elite 4 you can beat the first one easy like a breeze cause it's fighting type, the second one I suggest using Absol but for Sableye you need to find that out for yourself.the third one easy too cause it's ice type but for the fourth one use kyogre that at least knows Ice beam, Blizzard, or Sheer cold.

3.for all of you who are trying to find a corsola you can find it near the waters of Ever grande City where the Luvdiscs are.

Thats all the hints I can give, Oh and another Thing for everybody out there, Stop Posting About your Teams!!!!!!!!! We don't really care!

Premier Ball

To get this, you need to go to a pokemart that sells pokeballs, and buy 21(4200$)
And the shopkeeper will give you a free premier ball. You get 21 poke balls and 1 of the pest kinds of balls for only 4200$.

Elite four

This is the low down. The elite four is very easy especially if you have kyrogre. If the kyrogre has ice beam surf and blizzard and thunder you waill win. Keep a fighting type for sydnies dark pokemon. And for glacias icce pokemon. Keep some items for the ghost Pokemon because her last dusclops know toxic and once your poisoined it gets nasty. And drake use ice beam on all his pokemon.and last but not least steven use water moves ince most of his Pokemon are half ground and steel excpt for his skarmony.

A Guide to Your Normal Ranked Contest Opponents

I will tell you about the AI opponents of the Contests at the Normal Rank. It is recommended to use CTRL F so you can refer to some Pokemon for comarison or whatever.

Dots (Seedot)
This Seedot is the ONLY Pokemon that uses an Appeal Combo in all of the Normal Rank Contests! It usually features in Cool, Tough and Smart Contests. It's moves are:

Synthesis (I do not know exactly how it functions...) Smart Move
Growth (Gives Dots a Blue Star that adds one Appeal and decreases nervousness chance by 10%) Beauty Move 1 Appeal
Bullet Seed (Cuts opponents' Appeal in half, rounding down if an appeal is an odd number.) Cool Move 2 Appeal
Bide (The user cannot be startled, lose Blue Stars or be dazzled* for the whole round) Tough Move 1 Appeal

Combos: Growth-Bullet Seed
This combo works like this: Seedot uses Growth to up it's appeals and usually ends up at the last place of the round where the combo works best^. When it uses Bullet Seed, Dots not only gets 3 Appeal because of Growth, but gets an additional 2! Bullet Seed of course, cuts opponents' Appeal in half.

Dots also uses Bide to avoid negative Appeal (otherwise, why use it?) and usually never uses Synthesis without having at least one Blue Star. In any case Dots uses Synthesis it is usually done at the last round.

Ninda (Nincada)

Every contest has one AI Pokemon who's Primary Score is a star higher than the second highest AI Pokemon and Ninda is just that one! Ninda, to my knowledge only appears in Smart contests and boasts 2 stars for primary judging, contrary to the other AI's 1 star. And here are the moves!

Fury Swipes (Jams the other Pokemon's Appeal by 5 if they have the attention from the Judge#. Otherwise, 1) Tough Move 2 Appeal
Mindreader (Stops the Applause from rising and falling for 1 round) Smart Move 3 Appeal
False Swipe (Jams the other Pokemon Appeal by 3) Cool Move 1 Appeal
Leech Life (Jams the Pokemon directly in front by 3 Appeal) Smart Move 2 Appeal

Sometimes, Ninda really wants to tear his opponents and uses Fury Swipes a billion times. Or it might hate everyone and False Swipe them into oblivion. That really isn't anything to worry about. Bear in mind that Ninda will come first in the first round unless your Pokemon is more popular.

Whiris (Whismur)

I HATE Whismur and this THING comes along... The next few paragraphs are more than enough to prepare yourself against this evil pink ball of terror...

Screech (Read False Swipe...) Smart move 1 appeal
Astonish (Read Leech Life...) Smart move 2 appeal
Hyper Voice (Same as Screech) Cool move 1 appeal
Uproar (Randomises the order of next round)Cute move 3 appeal

This moveset doesn't usually cause Whiris to win, but seems to advantage others... And you'll see Whiris a LOT. He/she/it features in Cute, Cool and Smart contests... Generally speaking, it will Jam you to pieces and will infuriate you.

Slokth (Slakoth)

Slokth is mediocre if not easy to beat. It's moveset doesnt seem to hurt a lot unless you get unnerved. Slokth appears in Tough, Cute, Cool and for some odd reason, Beauty contests..........

Strength (Jams opponents by 5 appeal if they used a Tough move. Otherwise by 1) Tough move 2 appeal
Counter (Prevents being jammed, dazzled and loss of Blue Stars once one of those have been attempted. Afterwards, the user is exposed) Tough move 2 Appeal
Yawn (Attempts to unnerve Pokemon behind)
Encore (Same as yawn)

Slokth has a habit of consecutive Strength-ing, much like Ninda but worse for himself. This sloth is has TWO unnerving moves at the ready, so don't be surprised if the Judge doesn't care if you froze up...

Zigoon (Zigzagoon)

This raggy ball of fun literally APPEALS to trainers worldwide and now the Judge. This Zigzagoon has a higher-than-average chance of winning but we can put a stop to that can't we...

Covet (Appeal based on the Appeal of others. I'm not CERTAIN about it's effeciency) Cute Move At least 1 appeal
Tail Whip (Does 6 appeal (hehehe) when played at the end of the round, otherwise 2) Cute Appeal At least 2 appeal
Rest (Read Counter, Slokth)
Tackle (No effect) Tough Move 4 appeal

Being able to base it's appeal on others, shield itself from harm AND some high appeal moves, Zigoon is one Zigzagoon to look out for. But I've already warned you and beating Zigoon should be a piece of cake!

Zutzu (Zubat)

Another of my enemies, Zutzu has a somewhat, reasonable chance of winning a contest, but that, you should see for yourself. Zutzu enjoys the Smart and Beauty contests and he has two moves of each of those catergories.

Confuse Ray (Same as Uproar, look at Whiris) Smart Move 3 Appeal
Leech Life (Not any different to Ninda's Leech Life...) Smart Move 2 Appeal
Mean Look (An unnerving move...) Beauty Move, 2 Appeal
Haze (Just like in battles, your opponents' stats are normalized, in this case, Blue Stars are elliminated. Only, the opponents in front are affected and you aren't either!) Beauty Move 3 Appeal.

Zutzu has a range of moves to choose from (only four actually), each with it's own different effect. But when will Zutzu deploy them? In a Beauty Contest, if Zutzu is second or first, it usually appeals with Mean Look, although it may use Haze at second. Speaking of Haze, in a Beauty Contest, Haze has been seen in any place in the round! Zutzu will rarely use it's Smart moves in a Beauty Contest except when it feels like a chess master and makes the applause decline on purpose... In Smart Contests, however, Zutzu may use ALL it's moves. Maybe not in the same contest but still uses his all his moves. At least, more wiling to do so than in Beauty Contests. When second or first, Zutzu favours Confuse Ray but won't use a Leech Life when first, so you'll know when to deploy a move getting you the applause bonus (SIX APPEAL!) There was no pun intended...

Smish (Shroomish)

I hate Smish as much as Whiris because of it's Jamming appeals and he has Attract. I mean, SERIOUSLY! Attract... Who'd fall for something so... So UGLY!!! But you'll see what I mean... Smish shows off his giant dress at the Smart Contests. I've never seen him elsewhere.

Leech Seed (Jams the opponents by 2 appeal) Smart Move 2 Appeal
Stun Spore (Same as Bullet Seed... Just scroll to the top and look at Dots)Smart move 2 Appeal
Mega Drain (Jams the opponent directly in front by 4! Horrendous Maximus!!) Smart move 1 appeal
Attract (An unnerving move... How does it work with Smish anyhow?) Cute move, 2 Appeal

Smish is really annoying and I proved it by showing you that unstable move set. When first or second, Attract is his move of choice. At second or third, maybe a Mega Drain. At all places under second, Smish likes Stun Spore and Leech Seed.
Variation: I have seen Smish use Attract at third place...

Rikelec (Electrike)

I don't even think I spelt that right. But who cares? With a name like THAT! That kind of jumble name is only good for Electrode! Anyway, I want to comment that all of his moves are Cool... I guess he can't win a contest like that. And I've never seen him do it! Rikelec's favourite pastime is competing in Cool Contests! For some odd reason, he has a place secured in the Beauty Contest

Roar (Same as Uproar and Confuse Ray) 3 Appeal Needless to say this is a Cool move
Howl (Same as Growth... You can't forget little Dots can you?) 1 Appeal
Thunder (Cool version of Leech Seed) 2 Appeal
Spark (Cool version of Mega Drain) 1 Appeal

This Smish-wannabe uses Thunder and Spark where Smish would use Leech Seed and Mega Drain. Howl is used most anytime and Roar is usually used at the last round, usually already having used Howl twice.

Gulin (Gulpin)

As cute as Grimer, as round as Koffing, as green as... Apart from it's colour, a Gulpin is just like Grimer and Koffing's child. This Gulpin however, is cuter than Grimer and Koffing put together, and it doesn't get better than that! Gulin features as the Cutest in the land and has a fair shot at the Smart Contests.

Amnesia (It's like Howl and Growth except of course, cuter!) Cute move 1 appeal
Toxic (Like Haze, except the animation isn't so cool) Smart Move 3 appeal
Sludge (Like Spark and Mega Drain...) Tough move 1 appeal
Yawn (How is it POSSIBLE anyone would be bored to sleep by Gulin?! Maybe because Gulin has TALENT! Refer to Slokth) Cute Move 2 Appeal

Gulin can use Amnesia and Toxic like a combo consistently. Whenever Gulin feels it can't (how can artificial intellingence have feelings?), he, or she, will Yawn. Judging by this, Gulin is quite predicable, except for Sludge which Gulin almost never uses. Even if you are prepared, Gulin has a chance of winning. At least more than the other AI...

Poochy (Poochyena)

This puppy likes the Cool and Tough contests and it's moves will hardly differ in usage. He has a fair chance of winning but figuring out how to beat him won't be hard at all.

Howl (Haven't we seen this thing before? Refer to Rikelec) Cool Move 1 appeal
Take Down (On the round of usage, startling effects double. So Leech Seed does 4 jam, Screech does six, Mega Drain does 8 and Stun Spore takes Take Down out! And even a negative one for appeal to the user if the appeal resulted in and odd number!) Tough Move Six appeal (no pun intended either!)
Roar (Rikelec has Roar. Go bother HIM) Cool Move 3 Appeal
Bite (Like Screech and Hyper Voice, minus 3 appeal to those pesky opponents) Tough move 1 appeal

Poochy uses Howl and Take Down like a Combo. Howl gives you an extra appeal, and Take Down takes atvantage of that. Bite and Roar are usually used after Poochy uses Howl twice. I'm not sure which one is favoured...

Ronnar (Aron)

Ronnar is similar to Poochy in some ways. They star in the same contests and they both have Take Down. But Ronnar uses Iron Defense instead of Howl.

Iron Defense (Same as Bide, refer to Dots. Dots is getting popular now!) Tough move 1 appeal
Take Down (You just read the description while looking at Poochy. Unless you read backwards...) Tough move six appeal...
Metal Claw (No effect) Cool Move 4 appeal.
Headbutt (Just like Astonish. The Whiris section, if you please) Tough Move 2 appeal

Iron Defense and Take Down are like correlative conjunctions- you can't have one without the other. LITERALLY! Iron Defense is useless if you can push youreslf to victory and Take Down leaves you vulnerable and you can't get startled at the last place can't you? Headbutt and Metal Claw is just for tactical use.

Mahita (Makuhita)

Same as Ronnar and Poochy, Mahita likes Cool and Tough contests. Mahita can be a handful, but there's no worry!

Tackle (Zigoon knows this one) Tough move 4 appeal
Seismic Toss (Same as Slokth's Strength) Tough move 2 appeal
Vital Throw (Makes the user go into last place next round) Cool Move 3 appeal
Reversal (Like Zigoon's Tail Whip) Cool move 2 appeal.

Vital Throw and Reversal are, if you listen to Carpenters, closer than those 2 letters of the alphabet, A and B. Vital Throw MAKES Mahita go last and Reversal has six appeal (I keep typing that don't I?) when played last. Tackle and Seismic Toss are tactical...

That concludes my gigantic hint and now you are enlightened, go ahead and win all those Normal Ranked Contests!!!!!!

*Dazzled means the Judge looks away. This means if you tried to do a combo and you got dazzled, you won't get a bonus using your combo.
# Attention from the Judge means you can use an appeal combo and get the bonus. Attention can be lost when you are dazzled.

A very useful Poke'mon

If you already made it up to the moon to find Deoxys, you can use Wobbuffet as your starter for beating level 100 Poke'mon. You can use Wobbuffet's "Destiny Bond" move so when a wild Poke'mon made Wobbuffet faint, that Poke'mon will also faint. It is always useful if you bring lots of Ultra repels or revives to make wild Poke'mon flee or revive a faint Poke'mon. Good luck!!!

Easy training

Put two of you Pokemon in to the daycare then go find a mud slide and walk up it. By doing this your daycare Pokemon will grow levels. Rubber band down the up arrow on the d-pad to allow you to do the training with now effort.
