Try a lot of ice type Pokemon,or get a bronzing at a trade because drg types arnt very effective. Also, before battleing lance,make your Pokemon level about 50-65 and that's it! Enjoy kicking lance out the stage1
You have to beat red. After beating that go see prof. Oak. You get charmander, bulbasaur, of squirtle. Then go to saffron city get the girld poke doll return it to copycat. Go in the Pokemon tower thing talk to blue haired guy at desk. He gives you a hoen starter.
Lugia: After obtaining the Tidal Bell and Silver Wing go to Whirl Islands and after a lot of mazes through the caves on the island you will find a Waterfall Room where you will meet the Kimono Girls and after they dance Lugia will appear and you get the chance to catch it. P.S. Catching Lugia will be easier if you save the Master Ball you get.
Ho-oh: After beating the Elite Four go to Pewter City and talk to the old man standing on the platform. He will give you a Rainbow Wing. Go to the Bell Tower in Jhoto and give the guy next to the ladder the Wing. After a LOT of jumping and teleporting you will find Ho-Oh and battle it.
Raikou and Entei: After going to the Burned Tower Raikou and Entei will start roaming Johto.
Suicune: After visiting the Burned Tower you will find Suicune at random places around Johto AND Kanto, so it is not possible to battle Suicune before defeating the Elite Four. After seeing Suicune at the places it is found you can meet it at the area where you first met Gym Leader Misty.
Latios: After meeting Copycat at Saffron City to find her Pokedoll, go to Vermillion City's Pokemon Fan Club and you will find the Pokedoll on the table in the middle of the building. Exit the Club and you will meet this guy (I forgot what his name was) and he will tell you about Latios. After he leaves Latios will start roaming Kanto.
Zapdos: After getting all 8 gym badges from Kanto Zapdos will appear outside the Power Plant.
Articuno: See above. The only difference is that Articuno will be at the Seafoam Islands.
Dialga and Palkia: Transfer an Arceus from Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum and take it to the Ruins of Alph. You can choose only one of the two.
Manaphy: You will need a copy of Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. After completeing the optional quest "Save The Manaphy Egg", transfer the Egg you recieve to Diamond or Pearl (not Platinum) and transfer it AGAIN to Soulsilver. It will hatch into Manaphy.
Phione: Leave a Manaphy and Ditto at the Daycare, and recieve the egg obtained and hatch it.
MewTwo: Go to Cerluan Cave and at the back of the maze of gems you will find MewTwo.
Mew: You will need a Wii with My Pokemon Ranch downloaded. After giving Hayley any Pokemon Egg she will give you a Mew. Transfer it to Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum (Platinum Is Japan Only) and trade it to Soulsilver.
Thats all the legendarys I know how to get. Cheers! ; )

The best way to train/ev train Pokemon over lv 50 is to face the gym leaders again. You can face them as many times as you want. Take typhlosion for example he is fire so the best gym trainer to face off against is jasmine unless your ev training is something else then find the best gym leader to ev train your pokemon. If you have a lv 100 typhlosion, magneum, or ferligator and you want to train another Pokemon just put it in your party with an exp. Share and for typhlosion face jasmine, magnium face brock, feraligator face brock or blaine. And once you get it to level 55 to 60 then lets say you have a nidoking that knows earth power then you can face blaine, brock, or jasmine but for jasmine teach it surf for skamory.5

Hey! I will show you how to use the Pokewalker to it's full advantage here.
1. The Basics
Your Pokemon SoulSilver Version game copy includes:
Pokemon SoulSilver Version game copy
If anything is missing, please take your game back to place of purchase.
The Pokewalker is a device compatible with Pokemon SoulSilver Version and Pokemon HeartGold Version to take a Pokemon from your PC and "take a stroll" with it. 6 options are on the menu:
Pokemon & Items
2. Poke Radar
To use the Poke Radar, you must pay 10 watts. Once you choose Poke Radar, the Pokewalker will show a screen with 4 bushes. Choose the bush with the "!" sign, and maybe a Pokemon will pop-up. If not, choose the next bush with the "!" sign. If you find a Pokemon, the Pokemon on the stroll will engage in a battle with another Pokemon. There are three options:
Press < to attack.
Press > to evade an attack.
Press o to toss a Poke Ball.
Attacking will either have a critical hit, which will take away 2 of 4 bars, or a typical hit, which takes away 1 bar. If you choose to evade, though, your Pokemon will evade the opponent's attack. If both Pokemon choose to evade, nothing happens for that turn. Meanwhile, tossing a Poke Ball may catch the opposing Pokemon. Every Pokemon made faint will help raise your Pokemon, and every Pokemon caught will be stored in the Pokemon & Items option(see more in section 6) until you choose to return from your stroll(see more in section 8) . The caught Pokemon will then be found in your PC.
3. Dowsing Machine
Having to pay 3 watts to use it, the Dowsing Machine feature allows users to find items. Once chosen from the menu, it will open up with 6 bushes. Choose one in hopes of finding an item. If you did not find an item on your first pick, do not worry - you get a second chance. If it says it is near, then you would have a 50-50 chance of finding the item since it is in either one of the bushes beside the first one picked, or if you chose a bush in the corner and it says it is near then you will have a 100% chance of finding it because it is in the one beside the first pick. If it says it is far away, then it would be in any of the ones not directly beside your first pick. If you found the item, it will be stored in the Pokemon & Items option(see more in section 6) until you choose to return from a stroll(see more in section 8) .
Using this option would allow you to "go for a stroll", "return from a stroll", or recieve a gift. Just connect to your Pokemon SoulSilver Version cartridge by following these steps:
1) Insert Pokemon SoulSilver Version into Slot 1 of the DS/DSLite/DSi/DSiXL/3DS.
2) Turn on your DS.
3) Do everything normally until you get to the main menu.
4) Choose "Connect to Pokewalker".
5) Choose whichever option you would like to start processing.
6) Turn on your Pokewalker.
7) Point the top of the Pokewalker to your Pokemon SoulSilver Version cartridge.
8) Choose "Connect" and wait 5 seconds.
Your process is then completed.
5. Trainer Card
Your Trainer Card keeps a record of your steps in an amount of days and lists your name and your Route that you are currently on.
6. Pokemon & Items
The Pokemon & Items option shows your Pokemon on the "stroll", caught Pokemon with the Poke Radar(see more in section 2) , and items found with the Dowsing Machine(see more in section 3) .
The Settings menu controls your shade and sound. Change either one through this option.
There are few problems that can happen throughout using the Pokewalker.
Q - Pokewalker screen shows a Pokewalker with a face, it is pointing at the o button, and whenever it is pressed, it shows a sound wave above the Pokewalker, and the face would change.
A - To fix this, just connect with the Pokemon SoulSilver Version cartridge(see more in section 4) .
Q - When process of connection is in progress, a pop-up says that this Pokewalker is already registered.
A - Follow steps as shown in section 4 until you get to 5). Then press L+X+Down. You will be asked whether or not you want to erase Pokewalker data. Erase at the final message.
Q - Games don't play and steps are not counted on the Pokewalker accessory.
A - Make sure the accessory is not in Sleep Mode by pressing the o button for at least 5 seconds, that the plastic tab is completely removed from the battery compartment, that there is no foreign object(only batteries) in the battery compartment, that battery placement is correct, and replace the battery if necessary(CR2032 batteries)(need of battery replacement is shown by having a battery picture in the top left corner of the Pokewalker screen) .
Q - Steps are not counted accurately.
A - The Pokewalker must be positioned correctly to count steps accurately. Do not position it in your back pocket, loosely, or on a belt.
Q - Infrared communication cannot be made.
A - If connecting with another Pokewalker(see more in section 9), make sure both o buttons are pressed at the same time. Make sure the distance between the infrared transceivers is about 2"(5cm) and there is nothing blocking or interfering with the communication, and make sure that the infrared transceivers are clean. Also interfering are heat, sunlight, or electromagnetic waves.
9. Connecting With Another Pokewalker
Connecting with another Pokewalker means trading Pokemon on the "stroll". To connect, point the Pokewalkers together and press the o button at the same time.
I hope this helps you!
Lugia has got elite Sp. Def, and has great Defense and solid Speed. Its offensive stats are it's lowest.
My recommended moveset:
On Route 36, there is a "tree" that is preventing you from passing. If you use the Squirtbottle on it that you obtained from the person in the Flower Shop in Goldenrod City, something will happen. The "tree" will begin to move. You will then go into battle with the "tree". It will soon become clear that the "tree" was actually a Sudowoodo. It will be at Level 20. After you defeat / capture it, you can now access a new area.
Make the Pokemon have barely any HP.
Make the Pokemon Fall Asleep.
Use Ultra Balls to try to catch the Pokemon.
If the Pokemon wakes up, make it fall back asleep and continue to throw Ultra Balls.
To get to the secret room you will need the moves surf and waterfall. You need to surf to thojo falls go inside and use surf. Next use waterfall up and down both falls ( do not take literaly) there is a patch of land beside the waterfall ( right) go to it and up the stairs go to the second waterfall go in the middle of it and go behind it and your there. ( reminder: use repels)
