Fastest way to raise happiness (evolving into umbreon/espeon)

I am positive that there is a spot on this website that will tell you how to reset your game clock with a little mathematics and a nice little hack you can do. Well in order to get you eevee to involve into an espeon (must evolve during day) or into and unbreon (must evolve at night) you must riase happiness. One of the greatest, fastest, and easiest ways to do so is by getting a hiarcut in the underground path in goldenrod city. I saved infront of the haircutter, got my haircut, saved again, shut my game off, and reset time so I could do it all over again Smile. Give that about... 12 tries and you have an easy espeon or umbreon. (also try on togepi for a togetic)

Must read before cloning

Clone at your own risk!!! If you clone too much you can cause your game's save file to be corrupted, and yo wont be able to keep games off for more than 5 minutes( I know it happened to me).

Clone at your own risk!!! Cloning isn't worth losing your game completely over.

Clone Pokemon

This is the easiest way to clone Pokemon, but use at your own risk. If you don't use it correctly, you could lose precious data. First, make sure you have the Pokemon youwant to clone and at least one other Pokemon in your party. Then, walk up to a pc and SAVE YOUR GAME BEFORE GOING ON PC. Once you have saved, go to "DEPOSIT PKMN" and deposit the Pokemon you wish to clone. After that, go to "CHANGE BOX" and change your box to anything other than the one you are currently using. When it asks you if you want to save, press "YES", but right when it says "SAVING... DON'T TURN OFF THE POWER" turn off the power. Turn your game back on and load your file. If you did it correctly, you should be standing in front of the pc and there should be the Pokemon you cloned in your party and in the box yo..

How to get the Elemental Stones

After you have beaten the Elite Four go to Cerulean City, and go to the Cape, where in Blue, and Red versions Bill lived. Now his father lives there, and he wants to see specific Pokemon, and in return he will give you an elemental stone. Here are the Pokemon he will ask for:

Lickitung- Everstone

Oddish- Leaf Stone

Staryu- Water Stone

Vulpix- Fire Stone

Pichu- Thunder Stone

My recommendation is that once you get the stones, you attach them to your Pokemon, and clone them because there is only one of each stone in the game, and you need many stones to get the final evolutions to complete the pokedex.

Clone your pokemon

You can make 2 of your Pokemon, clone them, go to pc, put a Pokemon in an empty box, and save, now, save again but this time when it says don't turn off the power as it's saying (don't) turn it off, after you turn it back on, you will have a Pokemon duo, I used this method and cloned my level 75, hall of famer typhlosion, now I got 2!

Get All Starters Without Trading

First, at the begginig of the game, go to Elm's lab. When he asks you to pick a Poke'mon, sae in front of the table. Now this may take some time. Go to Mr.Poke'mon's house and get the egg. Then go back to Elm's lab. Once you are about to leave, this guy will give you 5 Poke'balls. Go catch a Poke'mon and then go to Cherrygrove City and go to your box. Don't save anytime between then and now. Now deposit your starter and change the box number. When it says SAVING DON'T TURN OF THE P, turn off the game. If done correctlly, you should be back at Elm's lab. Do this again with all the starters and neer take them out until your done. If you go and check your box, you will have all three starters after you have done this three times.


Free weekly stuff at the Lucky Number Show.

Each week tune your pokegear to the lucky number show and look for the lucky number. Once you have it match it to one of your Pokemon and go to Goldenrod City then into the radio tower and talk to the man in charge of the contest. If you match it you will have a chance of winning one of three prizes depending on how many digits of the chosen number you match.

1st prize-Masterball (match the entire ID number, all five digits)

2nd prize-Exp Share (match the last three digits of the entire ID number)

3rd prize-PP up (match the last two digits of the entire ID number)

If you have a gameshark, action replay or monster brain use it to change the ID numbers of your pokemon. Otherwise you have to trade from others to match the ID number.

Cloning Items and Pokemon

There have been many cheats about this but this is the CORRECT way to clone Pokemon and Items..

To clone POKEMON go to a Pokemon Center and then to the PC. Put the Pokemon you want to clone in your box, (hint:I would suggest you save before you do this process) Then select CHANGE BOX from the menu and switch to a different box.

When it says: "SAVING...DON'T TURN OFF THE POWER" turn your Gameboy off when it begins to say the word OFF, this is the way it should look when you turn it off: "SAVING...DON'T TURN O".

Turn it back on, and go to your box you should have the Pokemon you put in with you and in the box.If you wish to clone more than one simply deposit the number of Pokemon you want to clone in your box and do the same thing. Now, to clone ITEMS...

Where to get hm2(fly)

First go to Chainwood and beat the gym. Then go outside and look for the gym leader's wife and she will give you hm2(fly).

Totally Random Helpful Hints/Cheats

1. Save before doing anything important

2. In the Elite Four, save before battling one of them, and after battling with them. (Save after because if your batteries are low enough and you have used at least one cheat in the game, when you enter the next room, you lose your save file and have to rebattle the last person)

3. Save before battling Gym Leaders to.

4. Instead of keeping a button down on the game when you sleep to hatch eggs, I when I'm for example watching TV, I hold down the button. You save battery that way. Or spend your time training in the grass so you get stronger Pokemon as you walk around and get Togepi before the game plans. One step ahead of the game is a good thing. ;)

5. When you find a legendary dog for the first time, run away. Becasue unless y..

Find Celebi

Very Simple. Fill pokedex completley. Beat Elite Four after filling it (dosent matter if youve beaten them already just do it again). Have HO-OH, Lugia, Entei, Raikou, and Suicune and go to the shrine in the forest. Click on it and it will do the same thing, but after that it shines. Your trainer person does the what thing and you battle a level 100 Celebi. Some say you can find Celebi in the same cave as you find red but the level is only 50 then. Be carefull and save before clicking the shrine. Celebi is really strong. All my legendays are level 100 and Celebi keeps beating me before I can catch it. Use a Master Ball by the way. All I had were Ultras when I was almost lucky enough to catch it. Broke out immediatley when it's HP was real low in the red. HP was same with Lugia and I lost..

How to clone items and Pokemon!

Put the Pokemon in a empty box what you want to clone, and make that Pokemon hold an item you want to clone, e.g masterball, rare candy etc. Then once you've put the Pokemon in the empty box, change box, when it says saving do not turn off the power. Switch it off. Then switch it on and you will have one of that Pokemon in your party and one in the box and one of the items will be in your pack, and the cloned Pokemon (in your box) will be holding one.

Secret trainers

By the daycare theres water, use surf. Surf all the way down, go on the land and go down.There is the secret people. Come prepared because when you fight one you have to fight the others with no break time. When you defeat them one of them gives you stardust I think.

All three starters

For this cheat you will need a friend to help you, first you will have to have more than 3 Pokemon including your current starter, then you will need a friend with either Pokemon yellow, red, or trade your starter to your friends game, after that start a new game with a different starter Pokemon and capture another three Pokemon and trade your starter again, once you have traded start a new game with the final starter Pokemon capture 3 more Pokemon and trade that starter to your friend game then with the three Pokemon you have left trade all the starters of off your friends game then you will have all three starters on your game.

How to beat Morty

Morty is the toughest to beat in my opinion because his ghosts are near inpenetrable.

When against his Gengar, swap to a normal type pokemon like Furret or Rattata or preferably Hoothoot/Noctowl. Let Gengar use HYPNOSIS on your Normal type pokemon. Swap to another pokemon. Gengar will use Dream Eater. HAHA

My point being, there is no point on forcing a Pokemon to sleep if he/she/it is ALREADY asleep. And there also is no point on using Dream Eater if the opponent ISN'T ASLEEP.

Keep going like that until Gengar cant use dream eater and hypnosis anymore. At that point he'll resort to mean look and shadow ball. get the hoothoot or pidegotto, waste his mean look and shadow ball and peck (or gust) at him like no tomorrow. This isn't the QUICKEST way, but it w..

To clone, all you have to do is go to any PC and put the Pokemon in. Switch the box to Box Fourteen and when it says "Saving Do" shut it off quickly. The Pokemon will be in the box and your Party.

I don't know if it works in Gold but I know it doesn't work in Crystal, but there is a way to clone in CrystalSmile


Another Way To Catch Legendary Dogs (don't bother reading if you

Well first of all, I found this acciendently while training Pokemon outside New Bark Town. So by now you should know where and how to scare off the legendary dogs, well I don't know how far you have to get in the game for this to work, but I was training outside New Bark Town everyday after I scared them off, becuase of a cheat I was trying. By the times I reached the Elite Four (I havent battled them yet) I went back to New Bark Town to look for the legendarys and train more. I ended up finally running into Entei. I spent two more hours searching and couldnt find the others so don't bother. The next morning, I found Suicune (both Pokemon were found closer to Violet City, near the berry tree). Then the next afternoon, I found Raikou. So my guess is make your way to the Elite Four, then ..
