Kyogre - Talk to proffesor Hastings in his lab, and spend the night there. You will be called to the Ranger Base. You now have to go to the guy with the Lapras. Hop on, and off you go! You will suddenly get caught up in a whirlpool. Moments later YOU FIND KYOGRE!!!

Drowzee Man

After you have beaten the game, if you go to the place you fought Gordor there will be a guy name the drowzee man. If you do what he tells you, he will put you under a spell and take you back to your final showdown with Gordor again.So that means you can battle the three dogs again(if you want to.)

how to catch salamence very easliy

ok first when you enter battle with salamance, wait 4 him to stop his ground- pound attack (the fire rings)then wen he's walking around circle him once very fast. then he should get pissed and do his fire rings attack. after that he should fly around. when he is, start cirling him slowly, but too slow. going slow will give u more presicion and accuracy then going really fast. trust me, this works. i caught salamence on my second try doing this.


To get Regirock you will first have to beat the game-you will also need a Pokemon with a water ability, two Pokemon with a break x3 ability, and a fire x3 ability.
Just before you go into the temple use break x3 on the rock to the right. Then use water on the plant. Climb it then use break x3 on the wall. Go inside. There will be some Gastlys(catch them if you want it doesn't matter). Then go to the end and use fire x3 on the ice block. Go inside the big doors and Regirock will be inside.

Gain deoxys trust on ranger net

There are 4 different forms attack defence speed and normal you can only catch deoxys in normal form. On defence form avoid the rainbow ball it will just make it harder because the circle that you make is useless. In speed form wait until it is at the middle of the screen it is easy because you just have to circle it 4 times.
In attack form use discharge then use fighting poke assist.
When you get to normal form in capture deoxys keeps on transfoming if you capture a form that is not normal it will be forced to transform into the next form the forms transform in the order you battled them in. Attack,defence and then speed. My advice to you is to wait until it is at speed form then capture it then it will transform into normal form. You have to CIRCLE DEOXYS 9 TIMES ..

Registeel in Rangers

To find Registeel you need five 3x smash Pokemon one 2x cut Pokemon and two Pokemon with the cross ability. Go to Krokka Tunnel and go to the left side of the room that has the Zubat and cross over to the other side. Then go left and cut the metal fence. Smash your way to the other side of the room then go out of the cave to get another cross Pokemon (remember to get two).Cross back over to the rock room and cross the gap to the other side and through the door Registeel will be waiting for you.

Getting Regice!( Only after beaten game )=(

You need a vine Pokemon a max power rock smash Pokemon and a max power fire pokemon.Go to the place in front of Wintown and go to the part where there are two golems.Use the fire Pokemon on the south(lower)ice and it will melt.go in the door and use the rock smash Pokemon on the right(east)rock.
Go down the hole.You should see another hole.dont go in it.instead look to your should see a pole.use the vine Pokemon on should see a hole.go down it.then go up and you will see Regice. Method of capture is up to you but I strongly suggest using Minun/Plusle's discharge.
By the way,in addition to my registeel submissionif you go down from the place where you cut the fence to get to registeel there is a rock.use strength on it.Go down and there will be a few..

Beating the Main Baddies

When you get into the cave in which you have to fight Flygon, Kingdra, and Charizard, make sure to have a full powered plusle/minun. When fighting the Kingdras, wait until they both jump out of the water. Use plusle/minun's discharge. Any weakening or powering up duration is neutralized because of Kingdra's water/dragon type, so it will last the normal amount of time. Circle them both to get a bunch more points. Before Flygon, make sure to get plusle/minun's discharge fully charged. To do this, find a Pokemon in the cave (preferably something strong) and encounter it over and over, without ever completely catching it. It won't last long on Flygon, so be prepared to Try hard. Do the same for Salamence and Charizard. Against Charizard, wait until most of the fire is gone before using the d..

Partner Gauge

When you start, you don't have a partner gauge that you can use. When Plusle or Minun become your partner, you get this gauge. At rank 3, 5, 7, and 9, this gauge increases by one. You fill the gauge by making successful loops around pokemon. For each filled gauge, the power of Plusle or Minun's discharge grows. At 1 filled, three branches of energy go out from the partner. At 2 filled, four shoot from the partner. At 3 filled, 5 branches shoot from the partner. At 4 filled, the lighting grows in size, but there are still 5 branches of it. When all 5 are filled, 6 large lighting bolts shoot from the partner. The stronger the bolt, the longer the target Pokemon will be paralyzed. For every bit of excess in the next bar, the bolts of lighting will spin a little bit.

Catching Mew

To capture Mew, do not use the bug assist. Climb up to the jungle temple, avoiding Mew, and capture a shedninja. With the ghost assist, the capture will be a breeze. Also, be sure to battle Mew alone, and not with another pokemon.


To get Regice you will have to beat the game-you will also need a fire x3 ability, a cross ability, and a break x2 ability.
First go to Fall City. Then go down into the cave. From the entrance follow the path until you get to some Jynx. Then go follow the path more until you get to two Golems. Then use fire x3 on the bottom ice cube and go inside. Then use break x2 on the right rock and go down. Use cross to the left side and then go through the giant doors. Regice will be there.

Manaphy egg!

To get the Manaphy egg you must first beat the game.
Then go to Ranger Net. Then press R, X, and left on the d-pad at the same time. A screen will pop up saying "Enter the Password" touch the screen and wait until it saves. Then click on it. Then enter this password:
Tah-dah! All done! Then just do the special mission and after Pokemon Diamond and Pearl come out you can transfer the egg to it(how to do this I am not sure yet =P sorry).

Fighting Entei

Alot of people have troubles trying to beat Entei, some don't but here is a hint with just using minun/plusle assist. When Entei is in the center or not near the flame circle him once. Do it over again and again until the flames stop then then circle him for the last time and quickly use Minun/plusles assist fully charged (if not fully charged then keep circlings him, it recharges it. It will stun him and as fast as you can capture him because he attacks straight after he is healed

A new special mission

First you have to beat the game then go to the ranger net. When you're there press are, x, and left at the same time, and "Enter The Password" would be added.
Put in the code "P8M2-9D6F-43H7. A new mission would be added. The mission is called "Recover The Lost Egg." I won't spoil the surprise of what you could do after the mission, but you can only do it once.

Get your own manaphy egg!!

It's pretty simple, just follow these steps.
First, go to ranger net.(you only have this if you beat the story mode) then go to special missions. Now,this will only work in you beat all three missions you get. When you beat all three missions, with deoxes, Mew, and celibi,go to the special missions screen, and press, R, X, AND LEFT CONTROL PAD ALL AT THE SAME TIME. You have to do it perfect, so it my take a few tries. When you do it right, something will come up where you need to type in a code. The code is:P8M29D6F43H7. All letters are capitalized. When your done typing that in, you will get a new mission called, save the egg! Or something like that. If you beat that mission, you will get your very own manaphy egg! But it doesn't hatch for a long time, just to tell you. Well ..

UK Manaphy code!

To access the Manaphy Mission, go to the Ranger Net option on the main menu of the game when you have beaten the main story and press R, X and Left to access the password entry menu. Stick in this case sensitive code: Mg35-Cpb8-4FW8 and Manaphy is but a quick mission away. Of course, Diamond and Pearl aren't actually out here yet - but when they come out on July 27th, you'll be able to trade over your Manaphy egg and start breeding them Phiones.


Succesfully beat the game and complete all the special missions on the new thing you get I forget what it's called and then complete all the special missions that the rangers give you in the game but you can't take pokemin with you and one of the last ones is manaphy and after you capture it you go back to your base where you got the mission and you can now download manaphy from Pokemon ranger to Pokemon diamond or pearl but you need to ds's to do this sorry it took me a while to figure this is out oh and hint on catching entei suicune and raiku catch the first Pokemon with medicham or golem catch the second one regulary and catch the last one entei I thinkl with a gengar advice keep two with you
