Calculator Pokemon Sounds

When you use the Calculator App of your Poketch, you will hear a Pokemon's Cry with your sum, product, etc.

Example: 1 + 1 = 2 (Ivysaur's Cry - National Pokedex)

If you don't have a Pokemon Pokedex Entry at the number of your sum, product, etc, you will not hear a Pokemon's Cry.

Secret cave where Gible's are common!

First you have to go to the entrance of Wayward cave, but don't go in! You have to follow these directions carefully or else you wont find it. First go right 1 step, go down 8 steps, go left 12 steps, then just run all the way up and you'll enter. You wont be able to see yourself while doing most of the steps. If that doesn't work, try this: First stand to the left of the tree closest to Wayward cave, (you have to be touching it) then take 9 steps to the left, then run up. You will need a Pokemon with the TM Flash (get it at the Veilstone department store on the TM floor) and with the HM strength. Most of the Gible's you find there are around level 15. Inside you will find the TM earthquake, a revive, a grip claw, and some other stuff. Hope I helped!
