Free Spearow and TM44

To get a free spearow go to Goldenrod City and go to the top area an go through the brown/tan/green building. Then talk to the man in red behind the counter. He will ask you to deliver a message to his friend. Say yes and he will give you a Spearow with the message attached. Just remove the mail (it will go to your PC when you remove it) and attach it to another Pokemon (that you don't want). Go to Route 31 with the Pokemon with the mail in your party. Talk to the man in a pink shirt with overalls. He will be somewhat asleep. Give him the message. In return he will give you TM44(Rest). Also if you go back to the man that you got the Spearow from and talk to him you will get an HP up.

Secret radio broadcast

If you go into the ruins of alph when you can listen to the radio on the pokegear, open the radio and you can't hear any stations. But if you drag the dot right into the middle of the circle and you will hear a strange tune playing. It will also say "Mysterious Broadcast" on the channel display. I think it makes the unknown appear more often or something when you have it on.

Pichu with volt tackle!

Put a female pikachu holding a light ball (sometimes held by wild pikachu) and any evolution of hoppip (has to be male) in the daycare. walk... . You get a call from the daycre man your pokemon had an egg now pick up the egg, hatch it. if you followed these guidlines you should have gotten a pichu that knows volt tackle.

P.S. this is the only way to get a pokemon that knows volt tackle except for trading/migrating (or take a smeargle to the battle with red holding focus sash and use sketch).

Please rae this -cursemarked1

Next use waterfall up and down both falls ( do not take literaly) there is a patch of land beside the waterfall ( right) go to it and up the stairs go to the second waterfall go in the middle of it and go behind it and your there.
