Pokemon Ruby Cheats

Cheats and Tips for Pokemon Ruby

Last Updated: by Richard

Pokemon Ruby, along with Sapphire, are the first installments of the 3rd gen Pokemon series and were launched in 2002. The games kept to the mechanics of what made earlier Pokemon titles great and added some new features such as double battles and Pokemon abilities. This series, also added 135 new Pokemon. Even though it has been approximately 20 year since the release of Pokemon Ruby, gamers are still playing it today and in large numbers. On our website, we have a number of Pokemon Ruby cheats and resources to help you enjoy the game more.

First of all we have a number of Pokemon Ruby walkthroughs which have been written by various guide writers and are available to browse and print out for free. We also have over 3,000 individual Pokemon Ruby answered questions about the game.

We also have a number of Pokemon Ruby cheat pages. Because cheating in Pokemon games is usually done with the GameShark or Action Replay device or via the cheat menu of an emulator we have sectioned placed out Pokemon Ruby cheats into 3 pages as follows. Pokemon Ruby cheats and tips, you'll find them on this game, there are general handy cheats and tips to help you progress through the game. Pokemon Ruby GameShark codes, these are codes specifically designed to be used with a real cartridge version of the game, plus an actual GameShark cheating device. Alternatively, these cheats will also work in an emulator using the built in cheat menu. Pokemon Action Replay codes, these are similar to GameShark codes and can also be used in an emulator or using an Action Replay cheat device.

Pokemon Ruby Cheats

If you want to use cheats in Pokemon Ruby, then the only way to do this is to use GameShark Codes or Action Replay Codes. These can either be physically, in which case you'll need the actual game plus either the GameShark or Action replay, or virtually, using the cheat menu of your emulator. Seeing as it's been around 20 years since the release of Pokemon Ruby and the GameShark and Action Replay are really hard to get for the GBA now, probably most people will be using an emulated version of Pokemon Ruby for your cheats. The cheats are really simple to input, just grab the code you want and copy and paste it into the cheat menu of your emulator and activate it. Most of our Pokemon Ruby cheats will have specific instructions telling you a bit about what you can expect to get from the cheat and if there are specific instructions to activate a particular cheat.

While you will find some Pokemon Ruby cheats below, we also urge you to check out both our Pokemon Ruby GameShark Codes and our Pokemon Ruby Action Replay Codes pages for an even larger number of cheats to choose from.

Here is a selection of the best Pokemon Ruby cheats you can find on, remember, there are loads more, and loads of Q&A answering thousands of questions about the game.

For Pokemon around level 20, try the Granite Cave. If you are training Pokemon around level 30, then try route 117. The best place to train Pokemon around level 40 is route 120-121. For training Pokemon around level 45-50, then you should try to fish outside of Mossdeep City.

Easy Training Spots
Lets say you haven't beaten the Pokemon League yet, but you wanna know easy places to train at. Obviously the easiest way to train is by facing trainers. But if you have already beaten all of the accessable trainers and you are still looking for more, I have a few spots for you:

If you just caught a wild Pokemon (not legendary), and you want to level it up quickly, then train it where you caught it. The battles may take a while, but it works. I trained a lv.12 Gulpin about 10 levels in about 20 minutes at the place where I caught it at. ***Be prepared to go back to the Pokemon center. You will get hurt, but if you are patient, this will pay off.

If you are training any Pokemon around level 20, then try the Granite Cave. Unless you have a Pokemon that can kill all of..

3.Some of you,ask to have your team rated.How do you expect people to rate it?
4.It's a waste of your time,typing all the stuff out.
Post your team in the Questions and Answers section,and ask someone to rate it.NEVER,say your team is the best,there is no best team,and there never will be.

How to catch Rayquaza: After you have defeated the Pokemon League, head east from Pacifidlog town onto route 131, and check the northern edge as you go along. You'll eventually find a gap that will lead you to an island. Land on the island, then enter the small cave and run through to get onto the top of the island. You will find an immense tower here, the Sky Pillar. To reach the top, you'll need the mach bike, some patience, and a bit of skill. All you have to do is ride all the way to the top-easier said than done, since a mistake will send you down a floor. When you make it, save your game. It would also be a good time to use the master ball if you saved it.

How to get the pokemon SHEDINJA
Go to a place where you can catch NINCADA.Catch it with a POKEBALL.Make sure you have some pokeballs left.

Also make sure you have a space in your party.Now raise it to level 20 where it should evolve into NINJASK.Go into your party and you should have SHEDINJA in the empty spot.It has only one HP no matter what its level is but it's got a mean affect that only super affective moves harm it.

Its type is bug/ghost.
