Pokemon Crystal Cheats and Tips

Pokemon Crystal Tips


So, if you want to try to play through the game without cheats, then hopefully these tips will be of some use to you in your journey through Pokemon Crystal.

Find the Secret Trainers
There are a few trainers that are not so easy to find in the game, follow these instructions to get to them. Go to the left of the Daycare and you will see that there is a lake. Use Surf and keep going South. Eventually, you will hit land. If you continue to go South, you will run into 3 trainers. They are all Lasses I believe. Come prepared, because once you fight the first one, you don't get a break to heal up or whatever. If you win, you will get a Stardust which can be sold a a high price. You can find more details and comments here about these secret trainers.

Cut the Grass
You can use a Pokemon that knows CUT to get rid of the grass in an area. Get the Pokemon that knows this move then walk up to the grass without going into to and the grass should cut.

Cloning in Crystal
While it is possible to clone your Pokemon in Crystal, it can be a bit tricky and it's not the same as cloning in Gold and Silver, fortunately we have this guide that will take you through the steps in cloning in Crystal

How to Catch Lapras
Lapras is one of the more tricky to get monsters in Pokemon Crystal, not because he is rare, but because you have to be at a certain place at a certain time. You can only catch Lapras in the Union Cave on Friday. First, Fly to Azalea Town. Then, go right until the end. Then, enter the cave. Go up. Turn left and walk all the way to the end. Then, you will see a small pond. Surf all the way down and you will see a ladder. Go through the ladder and you will see another small pond. Surf and reach the opposite side. Go through the ladder. Then you will come to a very big pond. Surf all the way down and turn left. Walk down and you see a trainer. She will battle you.

After battling her, walk down a bit and you will see a medium-sized pond to your right. Surf and you will see a blue Lapras. Lapras will be at level 20 so have a Pokemon that is at least level 20 to 22. Put that Pokemon in your first place. You should at least 2 to 3 Great Balls. But now comes the interesting part. Don't bother saving your game before encountering it. There will be only one Lapras on that Friday.

If you fail to catch it, don't worry. Lapras is not a rare pokemon. It appears at the same place every Friday. More details here: How to Catch Lapras.

Use the game shark code for Kurt to give you celebi. This may only work in an emulator but try it on the visual boy advance. Use the code and Kurt will give you the gs ball. Then go to the forest. Place the GS ball in the hole.A level 30 celebi will attack you. It is best if you use the master ball code. Catch the celebi if your Pokemon are at least level 30. Kurt will come. Go back to his house. Repeat the same process to get celebi as many times as you want.

some numbers you might need

Schoolboy allan he gives you fire stones he is at route 36

The Best Way To Catch Legendary Pokemon

Lower the Legendary Pokemon's HP to almost nothing. Next, use a move that would make the Legendary Pokemon Fall Asleep. After that, throw Ultra Balls at the Legendary Pokemon.
If the Legendary Pokemon wakes up, make it fall back asleep and continue to through Ultra Balls.

Cut grass

Tierd of walking trough alot of grass???? It's easy.. get a pokemon that knows cut, walk up to the grass.
DONT WALK IN IT stand right in front of it. Use cut. You now have no grass to walk in.

Cloning in Crystal

As some of you may have experienced, cloning Pokemon in Crystal doesn't work sometimes, as it always does in Gold/Silver. Here's the accurate way to clone:
1. Have the Pokemon you want to clone in your party, and make sure your current box has enough room for it/them (You can clone up to 5 Pokemon at a time). You can attach items to the Pokemon, which will also be cloned in the process.
2. Save your game in front of the PC.
3. Deposit the Pokemon one at a time (not 'move without mail') into your box.
4. Change the box. I have no idea why people say it has to be box 6, but that's untrue. You can switch to any box you want to.
5. When it says "Saving...do not turn off the power." turn off the power. BUT you have to wait until about one..

Unown Info

When patterns appear on the wall in the Ruins of Alph read what it says and use a move that is related to it.
EG. Light = Flash

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.

Shiny Geodude

Hey guys
I know you may not believe me but I caught a shiny Geodude on crystal without having to use any gameshark or action replay code.
I was on one of the patches of grass on the left below Blackthorn city and my intention was to get a skarmory but instead I ran into a Geodude that happened to be a different color compared to other Geodude so I thought it was a shiny Pokemon because it showed glittering effects and made a strange noise to go with it.
I actually had a pokeball on me so that was good timing. Hope you find this useful.

Pokémon Mirror?

Here's a little thing I noticed about the pokémon in Crystal version. I don't know if anyone else realised this, but all the pictures of Pokemon in Crystal (eg when they appear wild or in trainer battles) are exactly the same as in Gold version, except they've been mirrored. For most pokémon this is no problem, but for others it causes complications. For example, Kingler, who is known for having a huge left claw has a large right claw in Crystal. Also, many pokémon who are pictured holding things, like Hypno with it's pendulum or Cubone with it's bone club, appear left handed in Crystal. I also noticed that the swirl on Poliwag's/Poliwhirl's/Poliwrath's belly goes the opposite way to what it should. This is just due to a shortcut taken by the developers so that they didn't have to re-dra..

Rare Candies!

First (after you've got a radio card) turn your radio to channel 10.5 (only from 6:00pm-12:00am)you will hear a channel called Buena's Password. Go to the radio tower and talk to the lady on the 2nd floor. She will give you a blue card. Next talk to the lady again she will ask you what is the password. If you enter it correctly she'll give you a point on your blue card. The lady next to her give's you stuff for your points. Save 3 points on your card to get a rare candy
And here are a few rare candy locations(Rare candies are well...rare!):
1) go to cinnibar island. U know where blue is? If he's not there, press A on the spot he was standing on before he left.
2) go to violet city. There's this pond somewhere in the north part of the city. Use surf and go..

THANKS!!!!!

All 3 starters

Save right in front of the three pokeballs on the table before picking on up. Take on of them then carry on the adventure without saving. When you get the pokeballs catch one Pokemon then deposit your starter into the pc. Then perform the cloning glitch. If you did this right you should find yourself in front of the three pokeballs again. Repeat the whole thing with a different starter. Then the last time take the starter you haven't yet picked. This time you can save whenever you want because there should be the other 2 starters in the pc. Then you will have all three starters. This can also be performed for the kanto starters.

Gameshark glitch (fast [mega] money)

Use the code for slot 1 ultra balls (0102D8D8) when you have only 1 poke ball In the first slot... This should be the only ball there. Next, activate the code, you should now have 1 ultra ball. Sell this one ball. It should now say that you have 0 ultra balls. This is so far correct, if you sell these balls, press the down button until you get a glitched number and a ton of money next to it, sell the balls. You will now have all the money and the 0 ultra balls. Repeat this until you have enough money

Pokemon Cloning THE REAL WAY!!!

Hi. OK first for every one who think you can clone pokemon in ruby/saphire or yellow/blue/red, well you can't, But you can in this game.
All you have to do is:
1. Save game by computer.
2. Put Pokemon that you wish two clone in the PC.
3. Switch box.
4. When switching box and it says "Saving don't off the power" turn off the power.
(you must do this right after the final letter shows up.)
5. Turn game back on, and look in your hand, then the P.C., and your Pokemon will be in both.
P.S. To do this trick you need at least two pokemon.
P.S.S. You can clone items by putting the item on the Pokemon.
P.S.S.S. You don't have to clone the Pokemon once over and over...

How to beat Falkner

To beat Falkner, catch a Bellsprout east of Violet City.
Then, trade it to the person in one of the houses in Violet for an Onix.
Train Onix until it learns Rock Throw and use it on all of the Pokemon in the gym.

Get Suicune/Suikun(Crystal only)

To get a level 40 Suicine/Suikun, you need to go to Ecruteak City. Go to the Burned(Brass) Tower. Talk to Eusine. After his lecture, you need to go around to the left, and continue until your rival sees you. You will have to battle him. Beat him, and you will fall down a hole. Walk up, and on a platform will be Raikou, Suicune, and Entei(In that order). Continue onto the platform, and they will come alive. Raikou will say "Rai-ikou!" and run off to the west. Entei will say "Entei!" and rin off to the east. Suicune will say "Su-uicune!" and jump around you, then will come up to your face (Eusine's dream!), and will say "Su-uicune!", and run off. Eusine will go into daydreams, then tell you he dug a hole here.Beat Morty, get the Surf HM, and get a Pokemon that knows Fly. Surf to Cianwood C..

Where to get Strength

To get Strength, go to the cafe in Olivine City, and talk to one of the customers there, a sailor. He will comment on what lightweights your Pokemon are, then hand over the HM.

Clefairy Dance- and a Moon Stone!

On Monday nights, if you visit Mount Moon, there will be seen a group of Clefairy dancing around a rock outside of the cave. Come close enough, and they will run away, leaving behind a Moon Stone. You will need to walk up to the rock and press A to pick it up. This can be done as many times as needed to get as many Moon Stones as you want! But it will only work once every Monday night, so you'll have to come back a week later to get another.
