Pokemon Sapphire FAQs

by ChristianWilloughby


In this FAQ I will answer questions that I am commonly asked by my friends. If you would like to respond to this e-mail me at  [email protected]  All questions asked me will be answered in the next Faq I release.

What is the best starting pokemon?
First of , there is no best. Treecko is the fastest leveler but he is the weakest at higher levels. Swampart level slower than Trecko but is more powerful then him at the higher levels. Blaziken levels the slowest of all but is also the most powerful. For sapphire I would suggest choosing Blaziken, because he is a good fit with Kyogre.

Is it best to level a single pokemon or many at a time?
My answer to this may surprise a lot of you but im going to say that you will complete the game faster if you only level a single pokemon. I always level my Blaziken until I get a Kyogre, then I level him until I beat the Elite Four. After beating the Elite Four, you should level many pokemon, but before that just leveling one will save you time and make the game easier for you.

What pokemon is best for defeating the Elite Four?
In my opinion Kygre is the best choice. You should teach him the following attacks: ice beam, waterfall, hydro pump, and thunderbolt. With these attacks you should be able to destroy everyones pokemon except Glaciaís Glalies. This is where choosing a Blaziken comes in handy as his fire attacks can easily kill them in a single hit.

Which pokemon should I use my master ball on?
I would suggest using it on either Latios/Latias, or Deoxys. Kyogre, Rayquaza, and Groudon can all be caught on ultra balls (even though it may take a while) .Latios/Latias will flee after a single turn making  it near impossible to catch them with an ultra ball. Also it takes so long to get to Deoxys that you donít want to get in space and run out of ultra balls, because you will never haver another chance to catch him.

What is a good team for Battle Frontier?
My team is a Kyogre lvl 100, Rayquaze lvl 100, Groudon lvl 100, Deoxys lvl 100, and Machamp lvl 100. I havenít ever lost a battle with this team. Now if you canít trade with anyone  I would suggest a water/ground (ex. Swampert) psychic (ex. Alakazam) and fire (ex Ninetails)  and put in whatever legendary pokemon you have.

How can I catch Deoxys?
To catch Deoxys you must go to outer space. To do this got to the space center in Mossdeep City. Talk to one of the scientists on the first floor and he will tell you how many rockets have launched successfully. Once this number is high enough he will ask you if you want to go to space(say yes) . Once in space you can catch probably the coolest (not to mention most powerful) pokemon in the game.

How can I get an Igglypuff?
To get an igglypuff or any other baby pokemon gfor that matter, you must put one of their evolve forms in the daycare center with a Ditto. Leave them in there for a while and when you go back you should receive an egg that will hatch into Igglypuff.

How can I get my Golbat to evolve into a Crobat?
Golbat evolves from happiness. So if you just give him the exp. share to level him up he will never evolve. Instead, put him first in your lineup and battle and win with him a lot. Also give him pokeblocks and enter him in contests. After you have done these enough he will evolve.

How do I get Metang?
Metang cannot be caught anywhere in the game. To get one you simply need to beat the Elite Four, then go to Stephenís house in Mossdeep City. There will be a pokeball on his desk. Take it and you have a Metang who will eventually evolve into the very powerful Metagross.

Thank You for reading and Good Luck!
