|    ==1. INTRODUCTION==                                             [ix00]  |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
This guide provides detailed information about legendary Pokémon, including
location data, walkthroughs and strategies, and recommendations for capturing
these elusive Pokémon.

 A. Important Notes - ix01
+-------------------------+
Through this guide, I offer to help you on your quest to obtain the rarest and
hardest-to-find Pokémon you will ever fight to catch.  This guide provides
you, the reader, with full walkthroughs designed to teach you how to locate
and track such Pokémon as well as the best practices for capturing them.

The main thing to remember is that catching legendary Pokémon requires time
and patience.  They often break out of thrown PokéBalls, so persistence is
the key to seizing these one of a kind Pokémon.  Remember that if you
accidentally knock out your target shut off the game and try again.  Most
legendaries will disappear if they faint, so it is always a good idea to
save your game before you fight these Pokémon.


 B. Navigating This Guide - ix02
+-------------------------------+
To find specific information in this guide, hold Control and press F to
open the Find box (Command + F on a Mac).  Type the code on the Table of
Contents into the Find box.  Then press Find Next until you arrive at the
section you want to view.

 C. Guide Symbol Key - ix03
+--------------------------+
There are some symbols that represent important or useful information in the
header.  Here is an example of a Pokémon section header:

-----<EXAMPLE>-----------------------------------------<E4|B>---------[????]

Key: EXAMPLE =Pokémon header name
     E4 =Can catch Pokémon before fighting the Elite Four
     B  =Can use Pokémon in the Battle Tower
     [????] =Navigational code. Type the code on the table of contents in
     the find box (Control+F) and click "Find Next" a few times to navigate
     to that section.

 D. FAQs - ix04
+--------------+

This section is intended to answer commonly asked questions about the guide
and the contents of the guide.  Please read this section before you send a
request for help, just in case the FAQs answer your question.

-Where do I find the (EON, AURORA, etc.) ticket(s)?
These tickets are no longer available; you cannot get them anymore.  They
are normally obtained through Pokémon events.

-What are Pokémon Events?
Pokémon events are real-life events where fans of the Pokémon world have a
party.  People really only attend Pokémon events because Nintendo gives out
free Pokémon for GameBoy Advance and DS Pokémon games.  Previous events
included Mew, Lugia, Ho-oh, Deoxys, etc.  Nintendo gave Pokémon to players in
the form of tickets.  The EON TICKET, for example, allows you to go to the
Southern Island and catch one of the Latis, while the AURORATICKET allows
travel to Birth Island to get Deoxys.  These tickets are "handed" out
wirelessly during the Events through the MYSTERY EVENT feature as the prize
for attending.  You have to catch the Pokémon yourself by going to the island
with the ticket.

-How do I get such-and-such cheat device?  I am in such-and-such country.
I cannot help you.  I do not know how you can get cheat modules if you are not
in the U.S. or U.K. the two most popular devices, Gameshark and Action replay
may not allow such transactions.  Please check their sites for more information:

Action Replay: codejunkies.com
Gameshark: gameshark.com

Also, keep in mind that we (meaning the PokéGuides team and me, the leader of
the team) DO NOT approve of the use of cheat devices for hacking or personal
gain in any way, shape, or form.  I only use such devices to provide you, the
reader, in-depth information on such Pokémon and the methods of obtaining that
Pokémon THROUGH LEGITAMITE METHODS.

-How do I get this Pokémon?
If the guide simply does not help you catch the Pokémon, or you just did not
understand my walkthrough, I will be glad to help.  Before you ask me though,
read the walkthrough several times, and if you just cannot get it, email me.
If there are Pokémon not covered in the guide that you want to ask me about,
by all means, do.  I will help.

-Um, I do not have TM28 DIG for the Sealed Chamber.  I sold it or cannot find
it.  What Pokémon learns dig?  How can I get a replacement TM?
Normally, you obtain the TM DIG from the Fossil Maniac's little brother who is
just inside of the house on the west edge of Fallarbor Town.  If you lost,
misplaced, or otherwise got rid of the TM, then the only thing you can do
(other than starting the game over or trading a Pokémon/TM from another game)
is go to the desert on Route 111 and catch yourself a Trapinch.  As long as
you DO NOT allow Trapinch to evolve, it will learn DIG at level 41.  It is
important that you do not allow Trapinch to evolve until it learns that move
or else nothing will happen when it reaches level 41.  It may take a bit to
raise it to that level, but I think the hard work would make you think twice
about getting rid of items next time.

-What about Mew, Ho-oh, and Lugia?  You did not mention them!
That is because they are not in Ruby/Sapphire.  You have to trade them from
Emerald version.  Let me repeat that:

Lugia, Ho-Oh, and Mew are not in Ruby or Sapphire versions.  They are in
Emerald, I know, but Emerald is not Ruby or Sapphire is it?

-Wait…you just said that I can find Lugia, Ho-Oh, and Mew in Emerald?
HOW DO I GET THEM?
You cannot get them anymore.  Check the Pokémon Emerald Version guide when it
comes out for more information, but in the meantime, I will just tell you that
they require the aforementioned MYSTERY EVENT function as well as special
items to obtain, but you CANNOT get these items anymore without a cheat
device.  In addition, as I said earlier, I do not approve the use of such
devices to hack your way to legendary Pokémon (or for any reason for that
matter).

-Why does the credits say that this is a collaboration project by PokéGuides? 
What is that and why is your name on the guide if you didn’t make it?
Hey, I’ll have you know that I worked hard on this guide.  I don’t appreciate
this remark, so I’ll clear everything up here.  PokéGuides formed as a direct
result of this guide.  In that sense, I have all rights to this guide,
including the information contained in it, PERIOD.  I say it is a
collaboration project because the PokéGuides team spawned from this guide now
supports me through the revisions of this guide and the creation of new
Pokémon guides.  The team gathers information, suggesting improvements and
additions to help keep information up-to-date and accurate as possible.  I
have enough trouble writing the guides, so the team also helps verify
suggestions and revisions sent in by readers through email and other means.
In the latest Pokémon guide projects of mine (Fire Red and Leaf Green,
Emerald, and the DS Pokémon games), they work on the moveset lists and PokéDex
information, as well as help with formatting issues.  In the end, I make these
guides, and I am the primary writer and team leader.  They tell me they do not
need credit for the work they do on the guides, but I still feel they deserve
it for the help that they provide me.   And no, we do not have openings in our
team for new members. Hopefully that cleared up some confusion for you.

+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
 (==Ruby & Sapphire versions==)
Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire take place in the Hoenn region, where verdant
nature, long trails, and lots of rare Pokémon lie in wait.

-----<THE GOLEM TRIO>------------------------------------<E4|B>---------[rg00]
The legendary golems are the three Pokémon Regice, Regirock, and Registeel. 
These Pokémon are sealed away in large rock formations without an entrance.
To get them all you will go on a long quest across Hoenn.  You will also need
to go on a Pokémon hunt...

 Sealed Chamber (Route 134, Ocean Current) - rg01
+------------------------------------------------+
This will be your first stop.  Sealed Chamber is hidden in the middle of the
Ocean Current between Pacifidlog and Slateport.

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN: 
-TM/HM: SURF, DIVE, DIG
-Pokémon: Relicanth, Wailord
-PokéBalls: Ultra Ball & Dive Ball
-Key Item: Super Rod

Relicanth:
The first thing you must do is DIVE underwater at Route 124 or Route 126.  If
you search in the seaweed, you will find wild Pokémon, usually Clamperl, and
Chinchou.  You are looking for a Relicanth, a ROCK/WATER type.  You need it
and another Pokémon, Wailord, to gain access to the Regis.  Relicanth is hard
to find, but don't give up.  It will appear.  Once it does, weaken it, and use
Dive Balls to capture it; those can be bought in Mossdeep City's PokéMart.

Wailord:
After you get a Relicanth, you need to fish up a Wailmer.  These can be found
all long the sea routes.  All you need to do is use a Rod; SUPER ROD works the
best.  After catching one, you need to raise it to LV.40 to get it to evolve.
If you want to save the trouble, you can SURF along Route 129 and eventually a
Wailord will appear.  They are considered 'rare', so they will be about as
easy to find as Relicanth was.

The Cave:
Upon obtaining both Relicanth and a Wailord, switch the Relicanth to the first
position in your party (that is, if you start a battle, Relicanth will be sent
out) and Wailord in your last position.  Get a Pokémon that knows DIG or can
learn DIG and put it in your party.  Keep Relicanth and Wailord in the same
positions in your team.  Go to Pacifidlog Town and SURF west.  You will
encounter the Ocean Current here, and it will whisk you along the route.
Make sure you stick to the southern edge of the route.  If you do, you will
land on a floating section shaped like this:

     --------------
    |              | Key: - | =Floating Section,  0=Launching Point
   -               |
  |                |  Stand where the 0 is, face the water, and use SURF.  You
 -                 |  will soon land on a circle that looks like this:
|                  |
|                  |
|                  |          -----
|                  |         |     |
|0                 |       -   00   -
|                  |      |   0000   | Key: - | =Outer turbulence circle,
|                 -       |  000000  |             0 =Dive spot area
|                |        |   0000   |
|               -          -   00   -
|              |            |      |
 --------------              ------

When you land on the dark circle indicating a DIVE spot, go underwater. 
Then, exit through the circle of light to the south.  Continue south through
the underwater channel, and go around the slab of rock at the end.  You will
see something odd engraved upon the slab.  Press the A button and a box will
pop up with a series of dots.  This is Visual Braille.  It is saying GO UP
HERE. If you return to the surface right in front of the message, you will
find yourself in an underwater cavern, the Sealed Chamber.  You will see
several tablets, each one inscribed with the Visual Braille (you can ignore
these; they are my Braille Decoder with just the Braille).  Go to the far
wall, It is inscribed with Visual Braille as well.  It says, "DIG HERE,” so
make sure you are standing in the middle of the tablet in the wall (you have
to be standing in the middle of the Braille tablet for this to work), open
the main menu, select Pokémon, and use DIG.  If done correctly, your Pokémon
will use DIG and a hole will appear in the wall.  Walk inside…

This area is shrine-like, with several small tablets peppered with Visual
Braille and one large tablet at the back.  I translated the small tablets,
and upon putting the message in order, it tells an ancient story:

"IN THIS CAVE WE HAVE LIVED.  WE OWE ALL TO THE POKEMON.  BUT, WE SEALED THE
POKEMON AWAY.  WE FEARED IT.  THOSE WITH COURAGE, THOSE WITH HOPE.  OPEN A
DOOR, AN ETERNAL POKEMON AWAITS."

Now, the large tablet at the back says "FIRST COMES RELICANTH, LAST COMES
WAILORD" so put your Relicanth in your lead party position, and a Wailord
in the final party position.  If you followed my instructions so far, you
are in luck, as you already have both Pokémon!  After putting the Pokémon in
the requested positions, stand in front of the large tablet.  The cavern
begins to tremble.  You hear three loud thuds, meaning you just unlocked
three Pokémon sealed away for ages...


 Regice (Route 105, Island Cave) -rg02
+-------------------------------------+
The Island Cave will be your next destination.  Regice is sealed away in an
island in the middle of one of the water routes, 105.  You do not have to
get the Regis in the order in this guide.

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
-HM: SURF
-PokéBalls: Ultra Ball (50+) 
-Quests: Unlock the Sealed Chamber

Locating Regice: 
To reach Island Cave, go to Dewford Town and SURF northwest.  You will be
at Route 106.  Continue north to go to Route 105 and stay west as possible
and continue north.  Right upon entering Route 106, you will see a small
circle of an island with sand and trees.  There is an item ball (containing
IRON) perched upon it.  There are also two other small sandy circles (more
like squares).  Go to the north a little ways more.  There will be a
Swimmer (male) in front of a long sand bar with rows of trees.  Land on
that sand bar and continue west.  Use SURF on the west side of the sand bar
and go between the two tree-covered islands.  Now, head north.  The watery
path will continue for a ways and you will soon see a stone island.  This
is the Island Cave.  The six large rocks surrounding it will be in the water,
with the island itself on a beach.  If there is not an entrance, you need to
follow the instructions under the "Sealed Chamber" section above.  If there
is an entrance, go into the island.

The island itself is bare, save for the familiar back wall peppered with
Visual Braille.  It says "STOP AND WAIT.  WAIT FOR TIME TO PASS TWICE.”
You need to have the message in Braille on your screen for approx. 2 minutes
and the door will open itself for you.

After you open the inner sanctum, save your game and head in.  You see
Regice surrounded by a circle of rocks.  Waltz up to Regice and press the A
button.  It "roars" and the music changes for the battle.

Capturing Regice:
Regice is difficult to catch in my opinion.  The most annoying thing is that
the Regis don't have very many Power Points (PP) for their moves.  This
means they will begin to use STRUGGLE and make itself faint after a while.
Whittle Regice's health low (but not too low) and hit it with a non-damaging
status effect.  Sleep and Paralyze work well.  Remember that if you knock it
out, it will be gone for good in R/S versions, so shut the game off, and turn
it back on if it faints.


 Regirock (Route 111, Desert Ruins) -rg03
+----------------------------------------+
Regirock is hiding in the Desert Ruins of the Desert in Route 111.  You need
the GO-GOGGLES to reach it.

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
-HM: STRENGTH
-PokéBalls: Ultra Ball (30-40) 
-Key Item: Go-Goggles

Locating Regirock:
When entering the desert on Route 111 go south and continue south until you
hit a big rock formation, a dead giveaway for Regirock's location.  The
entrance is on the other side, on the front wall.  Keep going south to find an
item ball: TM37, SANDSTORM (fits doesn't it?).  Upon entering the ruins, you
will see the back wall covered in Visual Braille.  This is what it translates
to: "RIGHT, RIGHT, DOWN, DOWN.  THEN, USE STRENGTH.”  So, take two steps to
the right, two down, and use STRENGTH.  Wham!  The back wall opens up.  Walk
inside to greet Regirock.

Capturing Regirock:
Regirock is the easiest to capture compared to the other Regis.  If you can
put it to sleep, you may want to for the sake of making things easier.  The
Relicanth you captured to gain access to the Regis might be a good choice in
this battle, as YAWN will put its target to sleep after two turns.
Regirock's SUPERPOWER is a FIGHTING type attack, however, which could destroy
your Relicanth in one hit.  Keep in mind that Regirock is, indeed a ROCK type,
so you can still paralyze it.


 Registeel (Route 120, Ancient Tomb) - rg04
+------------------------------------------+
Registeel is the last Pokémon on your list.  This one is hiding in the Ancient
Tomb on Route 120.  This is between Fortree and Lillycove cities.

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN: 
-HM: FLY
-PokéBalls: Ultra Ball (40-50)

Locating Registeel:
To get to the final Regi, go to either Fortree or Lillycove to get to Route
120.  This guide will stem off starting from Lillycove.  Head west from
Lillycove City and navigate through the maze of fences on Route 121.  Continue
to Route 120.  From there, continue west until you hit a wall near the girl
giving out rare berries.  Head north and you will see steps in the wall; go up
them.  Force your way through the tall grass and up the next set of steps.
There, you will see the Ancient Tomb.  Walk inside...This time the back wall
says "WITH NEW TIME, HOPE AND LOVE, AIM TO THE SKY IN THE MIDDLE.”  This, as
you might have guessed, means go to the middle of the cave and use FLY.  After
fulfilling the request, the back wall opens.

Capturing Registeel:
Not much to say here.  You know the drill.  Just remember that, since it is a
STEEL type it will be hard to damage with physical attacks.  In addition, you
cannot poison a STEEL type, not that you would want to poison a legendary
Pokémon anyway.  Hit it with sleep, paralyze, or freezing if you can (freezing
is not easy to do, especially with a STEEL type, but it really helps with
capturing legendaries if you can manage it).  Whittle its HP down (easier to
do since it is resistant to NORMAL, ROCK, etc.)  FIGHTING is super effective
against Registeel and the other Regis as well, so avoid using it.

SUMMARY:
Pokémon   | Type  | Ability    | Location
----------+-------+------------+-------------------------
Regice    | ICE	  | Clear Body | Island Cave (Route 105)
Regirock  | ROCK  | Clear Body | Desert Cave (Route 111)
Registeel | STEEL | Clear Body | Ancient Tomb (Route 120)


-----<LATIAS & LATIOS>-----------------------------------<B>------------[lt00]
The first thing you must know is that Latias is found in Sapphire only and
Latios in Ruby only. There is an island where you can find the one you cannot
catch normally, but it involves a Pokémon event that is long over. Both can
only be found after the Elite Four. When you defeat the Champion and after you
continue your game you will find yourself in your room. Upon exiting your room
you will see your DAD. He gives you the ticket for the ferry and there is a
news flash shortly after he leaves. Sightings of a red (or blue) Pokémon
flying all over Hoenn!

 Latias -lt01
+------------+
The first thing you must know is that Latias is found in Sapphire only and
Latios in Ruby only.  There is an island where you can find the one you cannot
catch normally, but it involves a Pokémon event that is long over.  Both can
only be found after the Elite 4.  When you defeat the Champion and after you
continue your game, you will find yourself in your room.  Upon exiting your
room, you will see your DAD.  He gives you the ticket for the ferry and there
is a news flash shortly after he leaves.  There have been sightings of a red
(or blue) Pokémon flying all over Hoenn!

This Pokémon can only be found in Sapphire (and Emerald) version.  She roams
the region just waiting for you to capture her.

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
-Pokémon Moves: MEAN LOOK, BLOCK
-*Abilities: Shadow Tag
-PokéBalls: Master Ball or Ultra Ball (Dive Ball if fighting at sea)

Locating Latias:
It is common to find Latias near a body of fresh water, sometimes even the
sea. If you fail to catch her (unless you knock her out, in which she will
disappear forever) you can track her location using your PokéDex.  When you
enter or exit a building, or move from route to route, her location will
change as well. Using FLY to quickly get to the route she’s at WILL NOT WORK,
as she will likely be at the opposite side of the map by the time you get to
her location by flying. Furthermore, when you find her again, she will still
have the same amount of HP and the same status as when you last left her.

Capturing Latias:
Since she runs away at first sight, this one can be quite tricky to capture.
If you want, you can make this quick by using your Master Ball before she
bolts loose. If you do not want to use it, then listen up...

Capture a Pokémon that can use escape-blocking moves such as BLOCK or MEAN
LOOK. These will prevent the escape of the target Pokémon.  However, if the
Pokémon that uses this move is Knocked Out, the effect wears off and the
target Pokémon can escape.  Golbat is one of the few that can learn MEAN LOOK.

A good idea would be to "get Wobbufet to level 44 and use a Pokémon with SLEEP
POWDER at level 50.  Get Latias down to a few HP and keep using ENCORE with
Wobbufet until Wobbufet is knocked out.  When Wobbufet is knocked out, use the
Pokémon with SLEEP POWDER, and use the SLEEP POWDER attack.  If Latias flees,
which it most likely will, you can track her down again, and when you find her
she will have almost no HP left and be asleep.”  (Sambasma)  You can use a
DIVE BALL against her to catch her a little bit easier.  Typically, ENCORE is
a move that Wobbufet learns from its Pre-Evolutionary form, Wynaut, after
Wynaut Evolves.  Breeding two Wobbufets while the female is holding a LAX
INCENSE will produce an EGG with Wynaut in it.  You can also obtain a Wynaut
EGG by speaking to the elderly woman next to the Lavarige Pokémon Center while
you have an empty slot in your party.  I have more STRATEGIES in the Latios
section that may be able to help.


 Latios -lt02
+------------+
This Pokémon can only be found in Ruby (and Emerald) version.  He roams the
region, just waiting to be captured.  

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
-Pokémon Moves: MEAN LOOK, BLOCK
-*Abilities: Shadow Tag
-PokéBalls: Master Ball or Ultra Ball (Dive Ball if fighting at sea)
The easiest way is to use your Master Ball, but if you do not want to use it
up, read carefully.

Locating Latios:
You may have better luck finding Latios somewhere along one of the seaside
routes.  He tends to stay on dry land more than the ocean, typically near
Lillycove city and the like.  If you fail to catch him (unless you knock him
out) you can track his location using your PokéDex.  When you enter or exit
a building, or move from route to route, his location will change as well.
Flying to his current location WILL NOT WORK, as by the time you get to his
location by flight (it's not instant in game-time) he will be at the other
side of the map.  Keep in mind that any damage or status affects that you
inflict upon Latios will persist; that is, when you next encounter him, he
will have the same amount of damage and the status effects (except
confusion) that you caused the last time you faced him.

Capturing Latios:
Go find a Pokémon that can learn an "Anti-Escape move" such as MEAN
LOOK or BLOCK and raise it up past level 40.  Golbat, "Sableye, and Duskull,
(and their evolutionary forms)" (Valth) can learn MEAN LOOK, Sudowoodo and
Snorlax can learn BLOCK.  Be careful if you use a Golbat, they are weak
against PSYCHIC type attacks, which is exactly what Latios uses.  When Latios
finally appears, use your secret weapon, but keep in mind that your Pokémon
must be faster than Latios or he will still be able to get away.  If your
Pokémon faints, the effect from MEAN LOOK/BLOCK wears off and Latios will
bolt loose next turn.  Keep this in mind during your face-off.

Another good Pokémon to use could be Wobbufet, "since Sudowoodo and Snorlax
are hard to get in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, and Latios/Latias is super effective
against Golbat.”  (Deer Hunter 94).  Wobbufet has the SHADOW TAG ability,
which prevents all enemy Pokémon from switching out or running away unless 
Wobbufet faints or switches out.  I would be cautious with using MIRROR COAT
against Latias/Latios or you may end up knocking them out.  I consider COUNTER
and MIRROR COAT to be too unpredictable with the damage it causes to
be used for catching Pokémon.  I have more STRATEGY suggestions in the Latias
section.


 Southern Island -lt03
+---------------------+
There is an island in both Ruby and Sapphire in which you can catch the Lati
that only appears in the other version.  As you can tell, this area is called
Southern Island.  Don’t waste your time; you would have better luck buying
Ruby or Emerald and trading the missing Lati over.

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
Key Items: EON TICKET
Other: Ferry Access, Defeat the E4

You can only reach here if you have the Key Item EON TICKET or if you use a
cheat device.  The Pokémon event used to get it is long over, so the only way
you are getting to it, unless you find a friend with the ticket (in which
you can use the Record Swap function to copy the Ticket to your game
cartridge), you are at a loss.

Accessing the Island:
If you get the ticket, go to the port in Slateport or Lillycove cities and
speak to the person standing in front of the ship.  The sailor recognizes the
ticket and transports you to the island.

Capturing the Lati:
Southern Island is quite mysterious, indeed.  A sign says, "Those whose
memories fade seek to carve them in their hearts."  At the end of the path,
there is an oddly shaped green mound that "speaks" when you examine it:
"Dreams are but another reality.  Never forget.”  Then, suddenly,
Latias or Latios appears for a battle!  You must have captured the Lati that
is loose in Hoenn first before the other one will appear at this island.

SUMMARY:
Pokémon | Type 1/2       | Ability  | Location
--------+----------------+----------+---------
Latias  | DRAGON/PSYCHIC | Levitate | Variable
Latios  | DRAGON/PSYCHIC | Levitate | Variable
NOTE: The Lati on Southern Island holds a SOUL DEW that powers up the SP.ATK
and SP.DEF of Latias and Latios.


-----<KYOGRE & GROUDON>----------------------------------<E4>-----------[gk00]
There is a legend of two Pokémon that were locked in eternal battle and
created the land and the sea.  These Pokémon continued fighting until the
light from two orbs, the RED ORB and the BLUE ORB, washed over the rampaging
Pokémon and calmed them down.  They then took to sleep hidden away from the
rest of the world.  Guess what?  That legend was true, and now you are part
of it!

 Kyogre (Cave of Origin, Sootopolis City) -gk01
+----------------------------------------------+
Kyogre is a major part of the storyline, and the mascot for Sapphire
version.  During the game, Team Aqua steals one of the orbs, the RED ORB,
from Mt. Pyre and takes off.  The woman atop Mt. Pyre hands you the remaining
orb, BLUE ORB.  Later in the Seafloor Cavern, you face off against Archie,
the leader of Team Aqua.  Then Archie's RED ORB begins to shine by itself
and Kyogre disappears.  The bright and sunny weather quickly turns violent;
soon all of Hoenn will flood!

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
*TM/HM: FLASH
PokéBalls: Great Ball/Ultra Ball (30-45), Timer Ball (20)
Key Items: BLUE ORB

Locating Kyogre:
Kyogre fled to the Cave of Origin at Sootopolis City.  This natural cave
formation is revered as a sacred area, so the inhabitants of the city left
the cave undisturbed.  FLASH is not necessary, but it does help you navigate
quickly through the cave.  The ground floor has plenty of light, but as you
descend the ladders, it becomes darker and darker.  Soon a haze white haze
fills the air, making it slightly more difficult to see.  As you descend the
last ladder, you see Kyogre.  It watches you as you walk around the pool
it is sitting in.  Suddenly Kyogre lunges at you in an attack!

Capturing Kyogre:
Keep in mind during your battle that Kyogre is a WATER type.  Avoid using
powerful GRASS or ELECTR attacks.  Do not even consider using a Master Ball
on this one.  Battle Kyogre into a weakened state.  Paralyzing Kyogre also
helps.  After weakening the beast, use about 15 Ultra Balls, and if that
doesn't capture it use your stock of Timer Balls.  Now if that doesn't work
either, use your Net Balls until you capture it. Timer and Net Balls can be
found at Rustboro and Sootopolis Cities, respectively.


 Groudon (Cave of Origin, Sootopolis City) -gk02
+-----------------------------------------------+
Groudon is a key part of the storyline, and the mascot for Ruby version.
During the game, Team Magma steals one of the orbs, the BLUE ORB, from Mt.
Pyre and takes off.  The woman atop Mt. Pyre hands you the remaining orb,
RED ORB.  At the Seafloor Cavern, you battle against Maxie, the leader of
Team Magma.  Suddenly Maxie's BLUE ORB begins to shine from the power of your
battle and Groudon disappears.  The sun blazes overhead, threatening to burn
you into a crisp.  Hoenn's seas are drying up, and you alone must fix this
situation!

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
*TM/HM: FLASH
PokéBalls: Great Ball/Ultra Ball (30-45), Timer Ball (20)
Key Items: RED ORB

Locating Groudon:
Groudon retreated to the Cave of Origin within Sootopolis City.  This cave
has been left undisturbed from its original state, so you can expect it to be
dark.  Bring a Pokémon that knows FLASH.  By following the walls, you can
navigate the cave yourself, but FLASH will make things quicker and easier.
As you wind your way through the cave, it will become darker and darker.
Soon there will be nothing but a haze all around you.  As you descend the
final ladder, you see Groudon.  It waits patiently as you walk in front of
it.  Then with a roar, Groudon lunges at you.  Now is your chance!

Capturing Groudon:
Remember during your battle that Groudon is a GROUND type.  Avoid GRASS and
WATER attacks.  Do not even consider using a Master Ball on this one.  Battle
Groudon into a weakened state.  Paralyzing Groudon is not an option here, so
try Sleep.  Use about 15 Ultra Balls and then start using your Timer Balls.
If that doesn’t work, and you run out of Timer Balls, use the rest of your
Ultra Balls until you capture it or you run out (if you run out, shut the
game off and try again).

Name    | Type   | Ability | Location
--------+--------+---------+---------------
Kyogre  | WATER  | Drizzle | Cave of Origin
Groudon | GROUND | Drought | Cave of Origin


-----<RAYQUAZA>---------------------------------------------------------[rq00]
Rayquaza is considered by far to be one of the most powerful Pokémon in the
game.  Catching Rayquaza is not as difficult as it seems, just frustrating.

 Sky Pillar (Route 131) -rq01
+----------------------------+
This is a large tower where Rayquaza sleeps.  Bring your MACH BIKE, strong
Pokémon, and plenty of healing items.

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
TM/HM: SURF
PokéBalls: Ultra Ball (50+), Timer Ball (30+)
Items: Revive, Hyper Potion (20+)
Key Items: Mach Bike

Locating Raquaza:
After you become the Pokémon League Champion, FLY to Pacifidlog Town (or
SURF if you have never been there before for some reason).  Heal up at the
Pokémon Center if you have any hurt Pokémon.  Get all of your most powerful
Pokémon, including those resistant to DRAGON, NORMAL, and FLYING attacks
(STEEL is the perfect choice; it is resistant to all of those).  Now SURF
east from Pacifidlog Town, sticking to the north edge of Route 131.  Once you
see a small opening in the rock barrier, shaped like an enormous 'S'
zigzagging back and forth northward, follow it.  Soon you will see a small
patch of land with an entrance in the cliff wall.  Enter it to find a small
cave that simply takes you up to the top of the cliff.  Upon exiting at the
top, you will see it: the Sky Pillar.  It is very tall, reaching into the sky
(hey, they don't call it the "Sky Pillar" for nothing!) and has an entrance
in the front.  Upon going inside, you will see nothing but some boulders,
wild Pokémon, and a staircase on the back wall.  Going up through the
staircase you will see the annoying challenge you must face.

-The Mach Bike Challenge—Level 1 (Sky Pillar, Floor 2):
The first of two, this challenge tests your ability to veer around corners on
your MACH BIKE without stopping or crashing.  Good luck...
Go around all of the corners without stopping, slowing down, or hitting an
obstacle (such as a boulder).  Hitting a boulder will make you stop, and you
will fall right through the cracks in the ground.  As long as you are going
full speed over the cracks in the ground, you will not fall through them; you
will zip right over them.  These challenges are frustrating, but keep at it.
I have heard of some people who took less than 10 minutes to complete these
challenges, and others who took an hour.

-The Mach Bike Challenge—Level 2 (Sky Pillar, Floor 4):
This is it, the last--but considerably more difficult--challenge.  Same
principle here, but more difficult.  There are several obstacles here trying
to stop you and make you fall back down a level.  Be thankful you do not have
to redo the first challenge if you mess this one up.  Veer around all of the
corners without stopping, but stop in between the last cracks in the ground.

Here is a diagram:
      0
00000000
  X XX X0
 ---------
|         |    Key: - | =Sky Pillar barrier, 0=Rock barrier,  X=Cracks

Fall through the two cracks that are close together, in between the crack at
the dead-end and the crack before the two in the middle.  Only if you fall
through the cracks in the middle will you be able to go up a floor.  After
falling through, there will be a rock barrier making a path to the staircase
leading up.  On the second challenge floor again, you have no choice but to go
up another flight of stairs.  Now, you are on the fifth floor.  If you search
forever, the wild Pokémon Altaria might appear.  It is a DRAGON/FLYING dual
type and evolution of Swablu.  One more flight of stairs is the only thing
between you and Rayquaza (that and an incredible amount of wild Pokémon).
You are on the roof!  SAVE THE GAME, YOU DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO SUFFER THROUGH
THAT CHALLENGE AGAIN...


 Rayquaza (Sky Pillar Roof, Route 131) -rq02
+-------------------------------------------+
Here is the fun part: catching this monster.  Do not use your Master Ball on
Rayquaza; that is just a waste.  You can actually catch Rayquaza rather easily
with Ultra Balls when it is weak and tired.

Capturing Raquaza:
Quite the annoying moveset if you ask me.  Rayquaza knows FLY, OUTRAGE,
EXTREMESPEED, and REST.  All of these moves are used in such a way as to annoy
the crap out of you while you are attempting to capture it.  And it works.
Rayquaza has OUTRAGE, which makes it automatically use it for 3-5 turns, then
becomes confused out of fatigue.

What is so bad about that?  If Rayquaza has low health and gets hurt from
confusion, since Rayquaza has such a high attack factor, it will knock itself
out. If Rayquaza's health is low, anyway it will use REST, or try to.  Any
status effect it has is cancelled and Rayquaza gets full health.  Sure, it's
asleep, but since it has full health you can't catch it until you weaken it
again.  By the time you throw a PokéBall, it will wake up and use REST again.
Just to let you know, REST has 15 Power Points (PP) so Rayquaza can use REST
15 times.  Keep at it and you will eventually capture it.  Once OUTRAGE and
especially REST are deprived of PP, Rayquaza will be vulnerable and
relatively easy to catch.  After about 30 turns have passed, start using your
Timer Balls.

Note that even if Rayquaza uses FLY, you can still throw a PokéBall at it even
before it comes back down.

Name     | Type 1/2     | Ability  |Location    | Held Item
Rayquaza |DRAGON/FLYING | Air Lock | Sky Pillar | Pecha Berry

NOTE: Rayquaza’s held item, PECHA BERRY, will be automatically used when
Rayquaza gets confused.  As a result, you most likely will not get the berry.
I simply put the berry into the summary chart for reference only.  Sometimes
Rayquaza holds a CHESTO BERRY instead of a PECHA BERRY.

-----<JIRACHI>----------------------------------------------------------[jci0]
You cannot catch Jirachi.  It was given out during a Pokémon event, so now it
can only be obtained with a cheat device, by using an e-Reader Card, or from
the Pokémon Colosseum Bonus Disk.

If you order the Pokémon Colosseum Bonus Disk, once you complete the game, you
can trade Jirachi from the Bonus Disc to your Ruby/Sapphire game.  Jirachi is
at level 45 when you transfer it from the GameCube.

Name    |Type 1/2       | Ability
Jirachi | STEEL/PSYCHIC | Serene Grace


----<DEOXYS>-----------------------------------------------------------[dx00]
This is yet another Legendary Pokémon hidden from view.  Only a cheat device
will allow you to get even close to this Pokémon, but some lucky people have
an e-Reader Card that gives you the AURORATICKET through the Mystery Event
feature.

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
Key Items: Auroraticket
Other: Ferry Access


 Birth Island -dx01
+------------------+
Locating Deoxys:
This island is realistically located near the Sevii Islands in the Kanto
Region, south of island six.  To get here, you need an item called the
AURORATICKET, spelled just like that.  If you have the ticket, go to the
ferry in either Slateport or Lillycove and select Birth Island from the list.


 Deoxys (Birth Island) -dx02
+---------------------------+
If you get the ticket and you reach the island itself, you will notice some
very odd things.  The first thing you will notice is that there is no
background music.  Second, the island is shaped like a huge triangle.  If that
wasn't odd enough for you, Deoxys is shaped like a triangle too.  Is it trying
to blend in? You can stand against the triangle in four different locations;
to the left, right, top, or bottom.  To get Deoxys to transform into a form
that you can actually catch, you need to walk up to Deoxys and press the A
button in one of the four possible positions.  If you do, Deoxys moves with
some threatening beeping noises.  Chase after it and stand against another
side and it moves again.  You will notice that sometimes it will move back to
the center of the island.  You need to press A against the four positions in a
certain order.  There are several "correct" orders, but the one I use, which
I will show below, works for all of the GBA versions.

      TOP
      /\
LEFT /  \ RIGHT
     ----
    BOTTOM

Use this sequence:  
LEFT, TOP, BOTTOM, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, TOP, RIGHT, LEFT, TOP, BOTTOM.

Deoxys should get mad from that.  Notice that each time you correctly input a
"side press" Deoxys moves and slowly turns from black to red?  Okay, so you
have gotten Deoxys angry, now let's catch the fiend!

Capturing Deoxys:
You should not have much trouble with this battle, as Deoxys is only LV30.
Still,it is rare and (eventually) powerful.  Its most powerful attack is
"PSYCHO BOOST.”  Anyway, since it is level 30 it isn't very strong to start.
Do not think that this means you can catch it easily, oh no…it is still very
rare.  Weaken it, throw Ultra Balls or a Master Ball, and hope for the best.
Avoid confusing it--this will cause some grief for you.  It has the Pressure
ability, so you use up your PP quickly.  Bring some ETHER, ELIXER, or LEPPA
BERRIES if possible.

Name   | Type    | Ability  | Location
Deoxys | PSYCHIC | Pressure | Birth Island

|    ==3. HARD TO FIND POKÉMON==                                      [hf00] |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
A section devoted to Pokemon that are difficult or nearly impossible to find.

-----<BAGON>-----------------------------------------<E4|B>-------------[hf01]
Bagon is difficult to find; it hides in a tiny little room in Meteor Falls
where you find TM02 DRAGON CLAW.  The benefits of capturing a Bagon are good;
it will evolve into a Shelgon at LV30, then into Salamence at LV50.  It will
learn FLY right after it evolves.  Salamence is the Hoenn equivalent of
Dragonite, but with fewer TM move capabilities.

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
HM: SURF, WATERFALL
PokéBalls: Ultra Ball (30), Timer Ball (10) 

Locating Bagon:
Enter Meteor Falls from Route 114.
STARTING POINT: ROUTE 114 --> METEOR FALLS

1. From the start point, go west and down the steps below you.  Continue west.
   Go up and SURF north along the body of water to the north.  Use WATERFALL
   at the waterfall.
2. At the top of the waterfall, continue north and go through the cavern on
   the strip of land.  Go AROUND the body of water in front of you.  Go down
   the ladder near the east wall.  Head as west as possible, and then north
   as possible.  Go up the ladder against the NORTH wall.
3. Go around OLD COUPLE: JOHN & JAY and up the four flights of steps to the
   north.  Pass DRAGON TAMER: NICHOLIS (he will battle you).  Go down the
   puddle-filled ledges, keeping west as possible.  Go ON FOOT so you can
   control your movements.  While staying west, stop when you reach the last
   ledge on the west side.  There should be more ledges to the east.  Go west
   along the path and down the ladder.  If you cannot go west, you went too
   far down.  Try again.
4. Go down the steps to the south and go east.  You will reach a body of
   water.  SURF north until you reach the strip of land to the north.  Land
   there and go through the cavern to the north.
5. You will find yourself in a small cavern with water ahead.  SURF north
   along that water.  You will see a small strip of land with an item ball
   containing
   TM02 DRAGON CLAW.  Bagon is here in this room and in this room only.  You
   will not find it anywhere else.  Run around on the tiny strip of land from
   which you took the item ball.  Bagon is considered "rare" so it may be a
   while before it will appear, and may be difficult to capture.  Be
   persistent and don't give up.

Name      | Type 1/2      | Ability    | Location      | Held Item
----------+---------------+------------+---------------+-------------
Bagon     | DRAGON        | Rock Head  | Meteor Falls  | Dragon Scale
Shelgon   | DRAGON        | Rock Head  | Bagon LV30+   |  N    /
Salamence | DRAGON/FLYING | Intimidate | Shelgon LV50+ |      /    A


-----<FEEBAS>-----------------------------------------<E4|B>------------[hf02]
Feebas is almost impossible to find.  It is in Route 119, but only in specific
parts of that route.  I cannot give you the exact location of Feebas along
that Route, as its location is different in each game save file.  I can teach
you HOW to find it, however.  If you have patience enough (how much patience?
Try at least a week of searching) read on.  If you do not want to look for
something that long, then skip this section; this isn't for you...

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
TM/HM: SURF, WATERFALL
*Pokémon Moves: Sweet Scent
PokéBalls: Net Ball (10+) 
Key Items: Old Rod

Locating Feebas:
Start at the very bottom of Route 119, at the first body of water.  You need
to fish in EVERY SINGLE "step" through the water.  There are a few hundred
"steps" in the water to fish in, and Feebas will appear in six of those steps.
Just work your way through all of the possible areas to fish, I guarantee you
will find it if you are thorough.  Here is a tip: if you use the OLD ROD to
fish, it will be easier to check if there are any Feebas in that "step.”
I recommend fishing in each "step" about five times before moving on to the
next one.

Note:
Be sure to write down where you found Feebas so that you can get more later;
they make great trading Pokémon and you can evolve one of the Feebas and get a
Milotic.  You need to have a Feebas with one of four natures out of the many
available to get it to evolve.  I will teach you how to evolve it; read the
section below.


 Evolving Feebas
+---------------+
The methods of evolving this Pokémon are as twisted as the ways of finding
it.  Feebas needs to have a high beauty rating before it will evolve.

REQUIREMENTS TO OBTAIN:
Pokémon: Feebas
Berries: DRY Attribute
Key Items: POKÉBLOCK CASE 

To raise the beauty rating of Feebas, follow these steps:
*If you have a bunch of DRY berries, skip Step 1
*If you have a POKÉBLOCK CASE, skip Step 2
*If you have both conditions fulfilled, start at Step 3

1. Pick berries until you have many DRY type berries.  Check berries'
   attributes by pressing A over a berry and hitting "Check Tag.”  Try to
   obtain several "rare" or high-level berries.
2. Go to Slateport City and go inside the HYPER RANK Contest Hall.  Receive
   the POKÉBLOCK CASE from the little girl to the left.
3. Blend berries at the Berry Blender in Lillycove City Contest Hall.  Blend
   until you have about 25 DRY PokéBlocks.
4. Feed Feebas those DRY PokéBlocks only if it has a nature that likes DRY
   flavors:

     Nature | Likes | Doesn’t Like
     -------+-------+-------------
     Mild   | Dry   | Sour
     Modest | Dry   | Spicy
     Quiet  | Dry   | Sweet
     Rash   | Dry   | Bitter

5. Once Feebas' BEAUTY rating is at maximum (will not go any higher) raise
   Feebas' level by one.  You can use a RARE CANDY if you wish.  If Feebas
   does not evolve immediately, you do not have the BEAUTY rating high
   enough.
HINT: If you have competed in a Pokémon Contest, you can go to the POKÉMON
FAN CLUB in Slateport City and talk to the Chairman sitting on the couch
(Chairman on the couch? Hahah).  Put Feebas in the lead position in your
party and talk to the Chairman again.  He will examine the condition of your
Pokémon.  If Feebas has a high enough BEAUTY rating, the Chairman will
comment about it.  He will give you an item, the BLUE SCARF (unless you have
obtained one from him before).  This means you have a Feebas with a high
enough BEAUTY rating to evolve!

Pokémon | Type  |Ability      | Location
--------+-------+-------------+---------------------
Feebas  | WATER |Swift Swim   | Route 119 (Water)
Milotic | WATER |Marvel Scale | Feebas (High BEAUTY)

NOTE: If you change the "Trendy Phrase" in Dewford Town, Feebas' location
(even if you have not found it yet) will change.  Likewise, if your friend
has found a spot for Feebas, you cannot change the trendy phrase in your game
to match your friend's and find Feebas in the same spot that your friend did;
it does not work like that.

|    ==4. USING CHEAT DEVICES==                                       [ct00] |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
Cheat devices are a good way to get what you want out of a game.  They are
also a good way to mess up your game save. In this section I will describe
what cheat devices do and how they modify your games. It gets technical in
some parts, so be warned.

- Positive Effects to Cheating - ct01
The obvious good effects to cheating would be that you could modify how the
game works while it is running.  This is done by replacing or modifying
information that is loaded into the game system's memory from the game
cartridge.  By selecting a code such as "Infinite Money," the cheat device
changes the values stored in the console's RAM that show how much money you
have.  By saving this game data with infinite money, the console stores on
the cartridge how much money you have (in this case, 999999) as well as other
things.  Such codes as "Infinite Money" can typically have the changes made to
the active memory saved to the cartridge without affecting your game save and
progress.

- Negative Effects to Cheating - ct02
Complex codes, however, that rewrite massive blocks of information in the
console's active memory can have some very nasty affects to your game save,
and your progress, when they are not used carefully.  This is more likely to
happen when you combine codes that change big things on how the game works.
I myself used an Action Replay MAX to help write this guide, and sometimes
the codes affected my game save so much that I must start over because I
cannot progress through the game anymore.  A prime example was in Pokémon
Emerald Version; I used a code to walk through walls, and I skipped ahead
by accident on the storyline.  I could not progress through the game at that
point, because I could not go back and do that segment of the story that I
missed (which is ironic because I could not go any farther without completing
the event that I skipped).  Use your best judgment when it comes to cheating;
or you could find yourself in trouble.  If you do decide to use cheats, if
possible, disable the codes with the activation switch on the cheat module
before you save.  The will help prevent some of the issues that result from
saving while codes are active.  Codes such as Infinite Money do not have to
be constantly running; it only has to be used once to max your money out,
therefore, you can activate the code, make sure it fills your pocket,
disable the code, and save. EVERY CODE that you use in the game will leave
detectable traces of code in the cartridge's flash memory. Nintendo will
be able to see those traces, and therefore, you will be unable to
participate in any official events or tournaments.

- Pokémon Requiring Cheat Devices - ct03
Some legendary Pokémon just cannot be obtained anymore, usually because they
could only be accessed during Pokémon events.  By using a cheat device that
can change.

Here is a list of legendary Pokémon that you must have a cheat device to
access them (note that I am only listing those found in Ruby & Sapphire).

Jirachi- Cannot obtain easily without a code.

Deoxys- Requires the AURORATICKET to get to BIRTH ISLAND and catch Deoxys.

Latias/Latios (Southern Island)- Need EON TICKET to access Southern Island
and get the other Lati, but Pokémon can still be obtained by trading from the
other version without cheating.

NOTE: I have confirmed that the codes that enable you to change what Pokémon
attacks you in the wild (Species Modifiers) will not affect your game save
even if you select a legendary Pokémon.  The only problem is that the Pokémon
you choose to fight in the wild will have the same level as others normally
found in that area (though this could be a good thing if you prefer to raise
Pokémon from low levels).  Another issue may arise from this method, as people
will be able to see that the Pokémon was caught at an unrealistic level at an
area that it is not native to (a Deoxys caught at level 17 at Route 114, for
example, rather than what it is supposed to be: level 30 at Birth Island).
People will know that you used a cheat device, and Nintendo would be able to
detect the code, revealing that it is a "hacked" Pokémon.

Please keep in mind that I do not cheat to get ahead in a game, and I do
not keep Pokémon that I used cheat devices to obtain.  I do not condone or
support the use of cheat devices in any way, and I provide this information
to readers for educational purposes ONLY.  The cheat device was used only to
speed information gathering on the legitimate methods of obtaining the
unobtainable Pokémon.

This is a decoder for the 26 letter English alphabet, plus a COMMA and PERIOD.
This works with all of the Pokémon games for the GBA.

|    ==6. VERSION INFORMATION==                                       [vsn0] |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
This section is where I list out all of the changes that I made before and
after this guide hit the Internet.

Before Release -vsn1
--------------------
03/28/2007-04/01/2007: Added several things, including the Guide Symbol Key,
Hard to find Pokémon list, Visual Braille Decoder, and stats for the various
Pokémon. 

03/30/2007: Added the "Using Cheat Devices" section and completed it.

5/19/2007: Finished up the sections and submitted guide

After Release -vsn2
-------------------
6/21/2007: Fixed multiple errors in the guide.  Added new information from
sources. 

12/09/2008-12/10/2008: Fixed formatting errors and a handful of spelling
errors that somehow evaded me before. Cleaned up some of the contractions.
Cleaned up some sections and re-wrote a few to spice things up. Reformatted
the email updates to conserve space.

2/01/2008: Corrected information about Jirachi.

8/14/2008: Improved the wording of a few sections, updated the Table of
Contents design.  Implemented other (better) features of my newer Pokémon
guides.

11/17/2008: Reworked the requirements tables for visual appeal and space
conservation. Makes them easier to read and takes up less space in the
process.

05/06/2009: Reformatted the entire guide based on the research team's new
formatting techniques. The guide's sections are easy to define and
navigate, and I have rewritten most of the sections and walkthroughs.

Future Updates -vsn3
--------------------
The Movelist and Statistics sections for the legendary Pokémon are in
progress. This update will be released within a month of the Fire Red
and Leaf Green guide release.

Related Guides -vsn4
--------------------
The guide for Pokémon Fire Red and Leaf Green versions is about 97%
completed. It still needs a little polishing, but I will finish typing it up
on my BlackBerry over the next few weeks.  Expect it to be out sometime
during the summer.

The Pokémon Emerald guide is in progress, but only about 53% completed.
Emerald has several differences from Ruby and Sapphire when it comes to
Legendary Pokémon, so tracking all of the differences takes a bit more
effort.  We will resume work on it after the completion of the Fire Red and
Leaf Green Version guide.

The Pokémon Diamond and Pearl version guides will not be under development
until the Fire Red/Leaf Green and Emerald version guides are finished.  It is
about 3% completed at most.  I am currently taking notes as I catch the
legendaries again in Diamond, however.

We will work on the Pokémon Platinum guide as we progress through the Diamond
and Pearl version guide.
