You know,I'm not sure.I think it has something to do with running into Pokemon with an action replay.Like the legendaries or pokemon that won't obey you like mew or deoxys.

There is nothin' you can do unless you have an e-reader. Yur supposed to be able to use that with the Altering Cave somehow. I'm not sure about the details.

You don't have to do anything in there,it's just a empty cave full of Zubats.

actually, its not. if you have mystery gift activated, and have the wireless adapter hooked up you can catch several pokemon such as Pineco and Teddiursa, wich is not obtainable ewerywhere else in the game.

You need to have either an Action replay or E-Reader. After that you can catch pineco, Aipom, etc.

You can only catch a zubat. But if you have an e-reader you can catch some other rare Pokemon. So, without the e-reader, there is pretty much nothing you can do in there.

You use the mysery gift I think it can be activated by going into a poke mart and filling out the questionnaire key in 'Link together with all' then reset the game after you do that you must have a wireless adapter connected. Then finally I think you can catch Mareep,Pineco,Shuckle,Teddiursa,Houndoor,Smeargle etc.

You can't just catch zubats in altering cave you can catch several Pokemon such as Smeargle,Houndoor,Teddiursa,Mareep,Pineco,Shuckle etc. After you activate the mystery gift. The Mystery Gift can be activated by entering a poke mart and filling in a questionnaire key in 'Link Together With All' you can then activate the Mysery Gift at the title screen you must have a wireless adapter connected though hope this helped.

This has some thing to do with the game cubes e-reader and mystery gift, with it you can catch some otherwise impossible to find items.Please do not say there are only Zubats when you don't know what your talking about.Smeargle,Aipom,Shuckle,Pineco,Teddiursa,Houndo-you're
Stantler and Mareep. Altering Cave is found north of Fortune Island on Outcast Island.There is no involvement with the regi's.it's also in emerald after the elite four BUT these Pokemon are the sort of thing Nintendo has events for. These Pokemon still exist in the game code though I don't think there is a way to activate them anymore.
I have heard some pretty crazy scams involving beating the elite four six times with a shuckle a feebas and a magicarp then blah blah blah legendaries in altering cave it's completly FALSE.

You only find zubats unless you have a e-reader or an action replay which allows you to catch rare Pokemon

Alright I don't know what you guys are talking about but I have no ar or e reader and I see zubats, items rare bones,gastlys geodudes haunters and I've seen an legendary celibe,entie suicune zapdos and moltres so if you aciendently killed one of those legendary Pokemon and didnt save before then go to altering cave and to find them it has something to do with a big pattern the farthest I got was to 36 times without messing up because I kept track of wich was the right one

All you can find in the cave is zubat. But I guess if you have an Action Replay you could spawn legendaries there and capture them.

If you use mystery gift you will get a bunch of Pokemon that you can only get in Pokemon emerald in the safari zone after you beat the elite four. But to get the mystery gift then you go to a pokemart go up to the questionnaire and fill in "LINK TOGHTER WITH ALL" and they will say save then turn the system off and on then and under the option new game click mystery gift and it will say the wireless adapter is not connected so thats why none of these people know what the awnser really is.

Hope I Helped

After you get mystery gift you can catch about 7 new Pokemon from another region, look it up on serebii.net

It's an event that allows you to catch rare pokemons that you cannot catch anywhere else, such as an Aipom, Houndoom etc. You require either a Action Replay or you must have attended a Nintendo Event. Without it, only Zubats appear.

I caught a Shiny Zubat in there. You can get rare Pokemon with mystery gift. Also the Regis if trade one over the others will be here.
