How to Catch Mew in Pok�mon Red/Blue/Yellow

Yes, believe it or not, it can be done without a GameShark or other cheating device. Here's what you'll need to do:

Restart your game and play until you get HM02 Fly from the house west of Celadon City.

DO NOT fight the following trainers:

The Youngster with a Slowpoke (Level 17) on the road to Bill's house (Route 25). He is the fourth trainer after you cross Nugget Bridge, standing directly above a female trainer and facing north.

The Gambler with two Poliwags and a Poliwhirl (all Level 22) between Lavender Town and Saffron City (Route 8). He is standing just east of the entrance to Saffron City, facing north toward the door of the Underground Path.

Carefully follow the series of steps illustrated below.

Make sure you have a..

Named after colors?

It's kinda weird, but all of the cities and towns in the game are named after colors... Lavender Town, Indigo Plateau, Saffron City, Vermilion City, Viridian City...


Yes, there is another way of making it so that you can get on the SS Anne after a while of gameplay.

Now for prep time.

1. You have to have a Pokemon that knows Surf.

2. You must be willing to save the game.

Now what you have to do, is, stand right above the sailor man blocking the way. Now you have to move your guy left so that you are diagonal to the sailor man. Now you have to do this quickly, so read ahead before you try this. You have to go to the right and quickly press START and save the game. Then restart the game. If you notice, usually when you save the game and turn off, your man on your screen is looking downwards, but for some odd reason, your man is looking right when you do this. If he is not looking right, then you need to go back and do th..

Get onto Cycling Road without a Bicycle!

Okay, so you may have deposited your Bike in your PC or never even bothered to get one, and you really can't be bothered to pick it up so you can get on Cycling Road.

There's a simple solution. When you enter either of the guardhouses that separate Cycling Road from Celadon/Fuschia City, walk so that you that the counter is right next to you. When the guard stops you and says that you need a Bicycle, keep on pressing Left on the D-Pad and after he's finished speaking you will walk past him anyway.

A very convenient and useful glitch!

Color Changing screen

When the game starts, at the screen where it says Game Boy, press a combination of one of the directions on the D Pad and the A or B Buttons. you can make the screen change into many different colors, including black and white, and neon. Cool, huh?

How to get Missingo and other high level Pokemon

This is how you do it, first go to Cinnabar and go in the the place on the left of the gym then get out, fly to Viridan and talk to the old man who tells you how to catch Pokemon, say no and watch him.

Then fly to Cinnabar and go in the water to the right of the gym. Surf then youll get an over level 100 Pokemon then it grows to level 100.

This works 100% trust me.

Missingno glitch and unlimited items

Need to have access to Cinnabar and need to know surf & fly. First go to viridian and go up from Pokemon center you see a girl. Right above her is an old man. Talk to him and say no. He'll show you how to catch a Pokemon. After fly to Cinnabar. Go all the way to the right. Then put the item you want get a lot of and list it as your sixth item. Do that by pressing select and then press select on sixth item then use surf ( for example Blastoise) and just go up and down. ONLY be on half- land half-water. Should encounter missingno. If level 0, run anything higher level after get on land. Check 6th item should have a weird symbol next to it it means it has more then 9 of that item. See ya

Get Into S.S Anne after it has left!

Pretty pointless hint, but it can apply to other blocked entrances in Pokemon blue, red, and yellow, such as getting onto the bike route without a bike. You must have surf for this to work.

What you do is position yourself right above the sailor guy blocking the entrance to the ss anne after it has sailed away. Walk one step to the left, so that you are diagonallly left of the sailor. then, take one step right and IMMEDIATELY press start. Save the game and reset.

Now, for reasons unknown the game programmers for the old Pokemon games set your character to always position downwards as default when you start the game. However, because you save immediately after stepping right, the game becomes confused.

Now after you reset, you should be facing right. If no..

Mew and Mewtwo in Pokemon blue

To catch Mew first go to Cerulean City. Then you go across nugget bridge and go to the grassy area on the left. After go in front of the trainer and pause in sight. Fly, dig, or teleport to Cerulean City. Once you do this you cannot pause. Then go fight youngster and his lv 17 slowpoke(make sure you are a space away from him). If you win you will be able to pause and fly dig or teleport to Cerulean City. Go across nugget bridge and it will pause once you unpause you will find a lv 7 Mew.

To catch Mewtwo you must complete the game and have a master ball. You only get the master ball once. Go to the cave in Cerulean City(surf) and go inside. Go in random directions and if you see a Pokemon it is mewtwo. Talk to it you will have a lv 70 mewtwo. At the begining throw the master ball at..

Duplicate items

To duplicate an item go to Viridian city and talk to the guy who was sick at the begining and talk to him.

Make sure the item you want to duplicate is the sixth item. Then go to Fuscia city surf down to the seafoam islands and surf along the shore (don't go on land) wait until you run into a Missingno, defeat it and you'll get alot of the items you duplicated.


If you want to get TM31 Mimic, go to Celadon City and buy a Pokedol, you buy this from the man which sells the evolutionary stones like Water Stone and so on, he is at the Department Store.

After doing this go to Saffron city and go to Copy Cat's house and talk to her and she will give you Mimic.

Glitch City! (aka Fuschia city)

This is my first cheat, and I know some people probably already posted it, but I need to get some cheats out there.

Now, for prep time. You need to have:

1. Pokemon who knows Fly

2. Pokemon that knows Surf

3. At least 500 dollars.

4. Be willing to save your game.

5. Have been to Fuschia city, and Cinnabar island.

Now what you have to do is go to the Safari Zone and pay the man to go in. NOTE IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ONCE YOU ENTER THE SAFARI ZONE, YOU DO NOT TAKE A STEP! Now right when you enter, leave. When he asks you if you want to leave early, say NO. You will then be put back in the Safari zone. Now Save your game, and either reset it, or turn it off and back on. Then once you start the game again, you will be right in the begginning o..

How to get to Glitch City

SAVE WARNING - Once inside Glitch City, DO NOT save your game. If you save your game within Glitch City, the save file will become corrupted and you will not be able to load it properly, forcing you to abandon your playthrough and start a new game. As utilizing this glitch involves Flying to Cinnibar Island, an area only explored during the latter half of the game, it means you'll probably have played for numerous hours that you don't want to lose, so use caution with this glitch.


Follow these steps for the only known way to access Glitch City, a 'city' comprised entirely of 'glitched' pixels:

1. Enter the Safari Zone in Fuschia City. Pay $500 to play the Safari Game. Once inside, exit. The clerk will ask if you're "Leaving alreadY?". An..

EASIER Mew cheat

The cheats with MEw on nugget bridge are long and tiring. My cheat worked this way.....Don't fight the kid with the sdlowpoke OR on the left side of the bridge.

Get an Abra.

Save before you battle the kid on the left side....take 1 step forward

the hit start right away...teleport with abra (make sure you healed at the pokemon centre before doing all of this)

Now go to the kid with the slowpoke, beat him then teleport again. Once you have teleported make sure you have a level 5 - 10 pokemon in first slot. Once you walk on nugget bridge the start menu will pop up....hit "B" button and you will be in a battle with mew level 7

you do NOT need to worry about the gambler because I havent gotten that far. It's worked for me with Pokemon Blue and Red so it is faster than..

Facing a different direction after turning the game on?

Start the game. Now, make your character face up, left, or right. Now Save. Turn the game off. Turn it back on, get into the game, and you will be facing downward instead!

1,998 Coins

Want to get 1,998 coins for the Game Corner? First, get 999 coins in your coincase and put it in your 6th item slot. Then, encounter MissingNo or GB 'M GB.

You will have 1,998 game coins, but you can not get rid of your extra coincase.

Finish Pokedex easy style

Put your master ball as sixth on your list, fly to Viridian and let the guy show you how to catch Pokemon, fly to Cinnabar and surf the east side of it. You will battle a Pokemon called something like ?#][M;+$` when you beat it you will have loads of master bals. This makes you able to complete your pokedex REAL fast. You can also duplicate other items

Okay, this cheat can be applied to both Pokemon ..

Okay, this cheat can be applied to both Pokemon Red and Blue (not sure about Yellow).


Well, the old way of getting a Mew using glitches is flying from the gambler trainer near Lavender Town, just as he sees you, fly to cerulean city and defeating the slowpoke kid, then flying to Lavender town and Mew will appear as you walk west towards Saffron.

Well, I experimented with this little glitch and I've realised you can have any Pokemon you like using this glitch! This is my simpler method of catching a Mew, or any other pokemon.

First,go to cerulean city with a Pokemon who knows fly or teleport in your team (abras in the area are good). Then, walk up nugget bridge until you reach a sma..

The Truth About Missingno.

Oh no, not another Missingno. thing. This is different, this Cheat is just telling you about Missingno. and why he is actually a GOOD thing to capture.

Alright, first off, Missingno. has some pretty good Stats. His Stats actually depend on his level (as usual). For example, if Missingno. is at level 80, his Attack will be 180, which is really good. Another thing though, if he is at level 80, his Defense will only be 8, which is bad but, any Poke'mon should be dead in one hit with Stats of 180 Attack, at only level 80. If he's at level 120, his Attack would be 220 and defense will be 12, but once he level ups, his level will go down to 100, but his Stats will stay the same.

Another good thing to remember is that Missingno. can learn basically all TM's and HM's. Whe..

(Mew Lv:5) The true way to get mew!

First you need a Pokemon with sing and an abra and a very strong guy too. After you get to city number three heal your Pokemon then go to nugget bridge battle Gary and all the other trainers up until the rocket grunt.

After you beat him, heal your Pokemon again. Make sure you don't fight the guy in the grass near there or the youngster with the slowpoke. Go to the guy in the grass, press start as soon as he sees you. You must be as far away from him as possible when he spots you. Select abra and use teleport.

Then walk to the kid with the slowpoke. Stay at least two steps away from him. When he spots you he will walk to you. Battle him and win then use teleport again. Finaly walk up nugget bridge again and boom, there's mew.

Hope you have fun with this..

Goodd way to train

DO NOT concentrate on training your starter Pokemon'll be your downfall

Disproving Rumours

1. You CANNOT get Mew from the Game Freak man in Celadon City in any of the Japanese games. You just get the diploma. Why is this still around?

2. In G/S/C, you can't breed a Nidoking and a Nidoqueen to get a super powerful Pokemon. Nidoqueens can't breed for some reason.

3. There is no possible way to see Mew instead of Mewtwo in the Cerulean Cave.

4. Missingno is a Water/BIRD type, not a Water/Flying.


Right as you turn your gameboy on, push up, or down, or left, or, right to change colors

Strange Truck

There is a strange truck that you can't see when walking into the S.S. Anne's harbour. If you could surf off the ramp leading to the boat, you would find it to the left of the boat on a patch of land.

But how do you get to the truck?? (Because you can't surf at this point in the game)

-this cheat is annoying because you have to go through most of the game just to see the truck.

Ok, You are up to the point in the game where you have to go into the S.S.Anne. Battle all the trainers in the boat except for one. Any trainer will do. Once you have beaten your rival, DON'T talk to the captain, because once you have talked to him, the boat leaves. And we don't want the boat to leave. Now leave the boat and go to a Pokemon center. Deposit all your Pokemon and withdraw ..

6th item glitch

Hey. This is a cheat to get the 6th item in you bag duplicated by 150.It works for anything, master balls, rare candies, etc.. But you need fly and surf, and be ale to go to cinnabar island.

These may muck up you game if caught but sometimes they don't. Anyway, either run away or figght the m..


Sorry if this hint has already been submitted but I didn't see it. If you are in desperate need of 10 coins for the game corner but don't have enough money to buy 50 coins or have talked to all the people and have gotten all of the 10 coins from them, here's how you can get an extra 10 coins. Walk into the game corner in Celadon City and as soon as you walk in you see a table on the right and another table on the left. Go to the table just past that and you should see a nerd. Get directly behind him. Walk up exactly 2 steps and face up so that you're one seat below the lady but stay in the isle. Walk down one step and press "A" and it should say that you found 10 coins!

Fushia Gym Secret

In the Fushia gym, there are invisible walls. If you look closely, there will be little white lines. The white lines indicate the location of the invisible walls, which means there is no wall in the way if there is no white line.
