Hint: Get to Slateport City and Mauville City:
When you get Surf, go northeast from Oldale Town into Route 103. You will see a body of water. Surf east and you will get to Slateport City and Mauville City faster then the bigger water Route 104-109.
Information in this section was contributed by Pklandconstract.

Hint: Johto starters:
When you get 200 Pokemon of the Hoenn Pokedex, Professor Birch will call you on your Pokenav and say that he wants to give you a surprise. You can now choose one of the three Johto starters (Chikorita, Cyndaquil, or Totodile).
Information in this section was contributed by darkchaos526 and Tinitta Hodge.

Get three Pokemon Emerald games and agree to get a different Pokemon when you complete your Hoenn Pokedex on each of them. For example, you would choose Cyndaquil, and the person with the other game would choose Chikorita, and the third would choose Totodile. Then, get a Ditto, breed all of the starters, and trade them to each other to get all three.
Information in this section was contributed by Rebeccanmanley.

Hint: Original starters:
Win the Battle Frontier completely (Gold and Silver) and talk to Birch. He will give you one of your choice.
Information in this section was contributed by Blake Magnus.

Hint: Recommended starter:
In the beginning of the game when Prof. Birch is in danger of being chased by a wild Poochyena, Zigzagoon choose Mudkip as your starter Pokemon. If you do not choose Mudkip, you will have a difficult time dealing with Flannery and her Fire Pokemon. If you choose Torchic or Treecko, the battle will take longer. If you chose Mudkip, you can end the gym battle in a few attacks. Just use Mud Shot. It is kind of like a Water attack, but stronger and will deal more damage than Water Gun if your Swampert is at level 36.
Information in this section was contributed by Bobby Vadhanapanich.

Should start out with a Sceptile, because the champion Wallace has a Water type. Get it to level 70.
Information in this section was contributed by asim shah.

Select Torchic as your starter. When you are first going from Rustboro to Mauville, you must fight your rival. He or she is very difficult to defeat with a Mudkip or Sceptile. Also, Blaziken is the strongest in the end.
Information in this section was contributed by Jordan Miller.

The two best Pokemon to have at the start are Lotad (his absorb can defeat Roxanne) and Torchic (when he evolves, his Peck can defeat Brawly).
Information in this section was contributed by Billy Reddy.

Mudkip is the best starter because when it Evolves into a Marshtomp it becomes a Ground and Water type Pokemon. If you want the best results out of all of the Gym leaders, then use a Swampert. It cannot be hit by Electric moves and it works well against Fire type if taught Ground moves.
Information in this section was contributed by Anthony Edwards.

Mudkip is the best starter for trainers that like to challenge Gym leaders. When it evolves it becomes a Water and Ground type, which is helpful for the Electric gym and the Fire gym. There are also many advantages to this type, because it cannot be hit by Electric moves.Overall, Mudkip becomes the strongest starter.
Information in this section was contributed by Tony Crucial.

Hint: Mystery Gift option:
Enter any Pokemon Mart and go to the clipboard that is by the shop keeper on the counter. Take the survey and enter in the words "LINK TOGETHER WITH ALL". The man will then alert you that you can now have access to the Mystery Gift option, after saving. To make it easier to find the word you are looking for, press Select, which will take you to A-Z mode, then select the a letter to bring up a list of words, beginning with the first letter of the word that it begins with.

Hint: Alakazam:
If evolved before level 33, Alakazam learns Calm Mind At level 33 as opposed to if it was a Kadabra, when it learns Role Play. This means you do not have to waste your TM04.

Hint: Bagon:
Bagon is the first stage of Salamence (Drake's best Pokemon, which is Dragon and Flying type). You can find it in the smallest room in Meteor Falls. On the rectangular piece of land, you will find TM02 (Dragon Claw), which gives Attack 80 and Accuracey100. Bagon evolves into Shellgon, then into Salamence. Salamence is like a fire dragon; cannot learn water attacks; but can learn Flying, Fire, and Dragon attacks.
Information in this section was contributed by Userjh69059.

Bagon learns Dragon Claw (without the need for TM02) if it is kept from evolving until level 49.
Information in this section was contributed by Ray.

A Bagon normally cannot learn a water move. However, if you mate a Pokemon in the Dragon egg group (level 42 Gyarados with Hydro Pump recommended) with a female Bagon, and you will get a Bagon with Hydro Pump. Besides this water move, Bagon cannot learn another one. This is your only chance to have a Bagon with the strongest water move.
Information in this section was contributed by Userjh69059.

Go to Meteor Falls and fing the room that is rectanglular with land, water, land. On the top bit of land is an item. Run around of the top part and you will have a rare chance of finding Bagon.
Information in this section was contributed by Clairespence69.

To get Bagon you must have the following: all 8 badges, HM 7 Waterfall, HM 3 Surf, a Pokemon that knows Waterfall and Surf, and a few Ultra Balls. Go to Meteor Falls and move up the waterfall. Go forward and there will be a cave opening. Enter it. Go to the ladder that should be about ten steps ahead of you. Do not bother going up the first ladder which you see. If you follow the path, there will be a ladder. Use it to move down. Their will be trainers once you move down. Ignore the old people and go up to the other trainer. He will only have two Altaria, which you get at Sky Pillar. After that, go down the sand piles and stay off to your left or you will be at the begining. Move down that ladder on the left after all the sand and surf until you see the cave opening. Then, surf across that water path and you will see a Pokeball. It is not the Bagon. It is the TM Dragon Claw (strong move). Walk around on that little dirt area and eventually, a Bagon will appear. Golbats also appear frequently. Once a Bagon appears, it will may be a level 25, 30, or 35. It is also more likely to be male. Bagon can learn the TM that you just obtained. Get your Bagon to at least level 30 and it will evolve into a Shelgon. Once the Shelgon gets to level 50, you will have a Salamence. This Pokemon can be your strongest if you train it well.
Information in this section was contributed by Mikey7829.

Hint: Beldum:
Because Wallace is the champion, you must fight Steven. Steven is inside Meteor Falls. When you enter, go up the waterfall and into the door. Next, go down the ladder, then go to the ladder in the south. Then, go inside the nearby door. Steven should be to the right. Note: If you are going to battle him, you can defeat him with Water, Ice (for Cradily), and Fire types for most of his Pokemon. He has Pokemon over level 70. .After you defeat him, go to his house in Mossdeep to get the Beldum.
Information in this section was contributed by Andre.

Hint: Blazican: Recommended moves:
Recommended moves for Blazican are Double Kick (learns after evolving to Combuskin), Fire Punch (learned from the Move Tutor; needs Heart Scale), Blaze Kick (learns after it evolves from Blaxican), and Skyupercut (learned at levels 60 to 80).

Hint: Castform:

Hint: Deoxys:
Like previous games, Deoxys has its own form in this game. It is the Speed form. It can only be found on Birth Island. The Aurora Ticket is required.
Information in this section was contributed by strikerzex911 and triassic911.

Hint: Ditto:
You can catch Ditto, but only after you defeat the Elite Four. Go to the Desert Underpass. It is only in the middle.
Information in this section was contributed by Brennon Austin.

Use the following trick to double your starting Pokemon. When you defeat the Pokemon League, go to the Fossil Maniac's house. Go into the desert under the pass. Catch a Ditto. Go to Mauville's Pokemon Daycare. Put a Ditto and your starting Pokemon in. Go back to Mauville and walk on its main road until the old man next to the house is outside of the fence. Talk to him and you will receive a egg. Keep your Pokemon in there if you want more. Once you hatch it, it will have the same type of the Pokemon you put in. You can easily beat all of the trainers with a party of Sceptile, Swampert, or Blaziken. You can also double your other Pokemon.
Information in this section was contributed by tyler daly.

Hint: Dragonite: Recommended moves:
Dragonite should have the moves Outrage, Flamethrower, Safeguard and Thunderbolt; Item: Persim Berry; Nature: Modest; Trait: Shed Skin. Keep Safeguard up to prevent Outrage causing confusion. Persim Berry stops confusion when the opponent uses Taunt and you cannot use Safeguard. You can knock out opponents quickly with this set.
Information in this section was contributed by Alex.

Hint: Feebas:
A Feebas will appear on Route 119 (fishing), and will change position when you change the cool phrase in Dewford. Blend Dry Berries and make Feebas eat them. After its beauty is full, level up to get Milotic.
Information in this section was contributed by rlwisdom.

You can catch Feebas in Route 119 at the water patch beside the bird house. Go to the far left as far as possible. Then, go down as far as possible. You should be at the rocks on the left. Swim up to the second rock from the bottom. At the bottom of that rock, and face forward (away from you). Use the Old Rod at this location.

Information in this section was contributed by Gregory.

You should have at least 10 Ultra Balls. When you are battling Groudon, first use a strong attack. Then you have at least a 90% chance of Groudon using rest. When it regains its health, go for another strong move then Ultra ball if it escapes. You will have to do this all over, but will probably catch Groudon this time.

Information in this section was contributed by JCLOUD93.

Hint: Latios or Latias:
After defeating the Elite Four, watch the television downstairs in your house. Mix your records with a Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire with the Eon Ticket. Then, go to Southern Island.

First, find whichever one that the news reporters described on television. Catch it (preferably with a Master Ball), then trade it to the Hoenn or Kanto versions. Then, start the game over and do it again. Note: This is another easy way of getting Cyndaquil, Chikorita, and Totodile.
Information in this section was contributed by C Goodwin.

The best place to catch Latias or Latios is at Route 124. You will need Surf.
Information in this section was contributed by taylor.

Defet the Elite Four. After you do this, you will be in your room at your house. When you go downstairs, your Dad and Mom will talk to you. You will then see a special on the television. It will be about a Pokemon flying over Hoenn. After it is over, your Mom will ask you what color the Pokemon was. You will have a choice of red (Latias) or blue (Latios). Choose one of them, then go outside. Professor Birch will talk to you, then take you to his lab and give you the National Dex. After this happens, fly to Mauville. Go in and out of the Pokemon Center then go right towards the Berry Master's house. Surf across the water, and go past the beach and the section of grass. There will be two trainers with yellow hair. Stand in front of the trainer to the right, and not the one by the sign. Make sure that you are standing in front of the trainer so that he is looking at you. Walk left and right in the grass. Do not go up or down; stay in the row of grass until you find the Lati you chose. You should have A Master ball to catch it because it will flee after the first turn.
Information in this section was contributed by Jay5908571.

If you chose Blue after you watch the TV after defeating the Elite Four for the first time, Latios will be on the loose somewhere in Hoenn. If you face the Battle Tower Brain, Sailor Maiden Anabel for the Gold Symbol in the Battle Frontier, she should use a Latios in her party. After you defeat her, Latios will be in your Pokedex as a Pokemon that you have seen but not caught. Using the "Area" feature on Latios' entry to track Latios around Hoenn, even if you have not found him yet. Note: Latios is like the Legendary Dogs in Pokemon Gold, Silver, and Crystal and will jump areas when you move from one place to another. Fly is not recommended due to this behavior.
Information in this section was contributed by Skyle Kelvin.

To catch a Lati without fleeing, go to the Safari Zone. Catch a Wobbuffet. Store it as your first party Pokemon. Once you find Latias or Latios it will not flee at the first turn. Try using a Timer Ball the longer the battle. The best place to catch it is Route 118.

Catch Raikou, Suicune, and Entei in Pokemon Coliseum and trade them over.
Information in this section was contributed by kingness700.

Information in this section was contributed by Lorenaalen.

Hint: Nosepass:
Keep using Rock Smash until you enter a battle with a Nosepass.
Information in this section was contributed by Michael Black.

You have to break the rocks in the beginning of Granite cave. If you do not find one, keep going back and forth. Encountering one is rare, and you will mostly run into Geodudes.

Rayquaza will be on level 70 and will know Fly, Extremespeed, Outrage and another move. Get out of the tower and use Fly to go to Fallarbor Town. Get a Pokemon that knows Surf and Waterfall. Go to Meteor Falls. Go to the water. Surf and get up the Waterfall. Touch land and go down the stairs. Make your own way through. There are two paths, one left and one right. Go to the left. If you go to the right, you will find Steven and he will fight you. If you want to battle him you will need a strong Pokemon of Water or Fire type. After five minutes on the left path, you will find the TM Dragon Claw. Teach it to Rayquaza. Do not remove Fly nor Extremespeed. Also teach him Thunderbolt. Again, do not remove Fly or Extremespeed. Then, defeat the Elite Four three times. This will make Rayquaza reach level 75. Do not teach him Hyper Beam. After this, find Land and Marine Cave. A man in Weather Institute will tell you where are these caves are found. Go first to Land Cave. Get twenty Ultra Balls. When you enter the cave, save the game. Battle Groudon. Use Dragon Claw first, then he will use Rest. Once again, use Dragon Claw. Throw an Ultra Ball. If he does not use Rest, throw Pokeballs until he uses Rest. If you kill it, reset the game. Use the same process to get Kyogre.
Information in this section was contributed by oP.

Make your way to Sky Pillar. You will need a level 42 Mightyena with Secret Power, Rock Smash, Strength and Bite attacks. You will also need a Pokemon that is able to paralyze (for example, a level 45 Raichu with Shockwave). You will also need nine Ultra Balls, a Timer Ball, a Premier Ball, and a Nest Ball. First, try to paralyze Rayquaza. If unsuccessful, throw an Ultra Ball at him. Hold Down while the ball is flying towards the Pokemon, then release Down and hold A + B as soon as the Pokeball opens. Try this a few times. Remember to save the game before fighting Rayquaza so that you can turn off the game and try again. Note: Rayquaza is controllable if you have the last badge, and it should help you defeat the Pokemon League easily, as well as be a great help on the Battle Frontier.
Information in this section was contributed by Taewoong Kim.

Hint: Regice:
The cave of Regice is northwest of Dewford island. There is Braille in the back of the cave of Regice. The statement reads "Stay close to the wall. Run around the lap." You must run around the room once while staying close to the wall. Once you reach the middle of the Braille again, the door will open and the battle with the icy titan will begin when you go through the door and press A next to it.
Information in this section was contributed by Aquarion102.

To catch Regice with minimum problems, use Yawn when you have chopped down its health to the "danger" area. Then, proceed to use some of the mentioned ball tricks.
Information in this section was contributed by Lope.

Hint: Regirock:
To find the cave of the rock titan Regirock, you must have the Go-Goggles so that you may enter the desert. Once in the desert, go south to the bottom and enter the cave. In the back you will see the Braille in the back. Go to the back of the room and read it. The message translated reads "Left, Left, Down, Down. Then use Rock Smash." From the middle of the Braille on the wall move left, left, down, and down. Go with a Pokemon that knows Rock Smash and use it. The cave door will open. Save the game, then start the battle with Regirock. Note: Bring a lot of Ultra Balls.
Information in this section was contributed by Aquarion102.

Hint: Registeel:
To find the cave of Registeel, go to Lilycove City. Go west through the grass and trainers. When you reach the area of the Safari Zone, keep moving. You will reach a place with a girl. Just above her are stairs. You must go up. Go through the very tall grass and go up the stairs behind it. The cave will not be too far after the stairs. Once inside, read the Braille at the back of the room. It reads "Those who inherit our will, shine in the middle." The riddle means that you should go to the middle of the room and use Flash. The cave door will open. Be careful with Registeel. This Pokemon is more difficult than the others to capture. Try bringing a lot of Ultra Balls or prolong the battle as long as you can by freezing it or putting it to sleep. After many turns the Timer Ball will have gained a lot of strength, and it might work against the Registeel.
Information in this section was contributed by Aquarion102.

Hint: Rollout:
Rollout's attack power is increased when you use Defense Curl first.
Information in this section was contributed by Alex.

Hint: Salamence:
Salamence can learn Dragon Claw at level 50 if a Bagon is kept from evolving until level 49. Bagon will learn Dragon Claw in the Battle. After the battle, let it evolve to Shelgon. Train your level 49 Shelgon to level 50 and it will evolve into a Salamence with Dragon Claw. Also, mate a Salamence with a Gyarados to get a Bagon with Hydro Pump.

Hint: Shedinja:
Capture a Nincada then leave one space in your party. Train your Nincada to level 20 and it will evolve. Then, check your party and you will have a Shedinja with 1 hp and all the moves your Ninjask has. Your Shedinja's ability is Wonder Guard, which will only allow super effective attacks hit it.
Information in this section was contributed by morgan_smith.

Hint: Smeargle:
Once you have defeated the Elite Four with all Pokemon with your ID code, you can go to the Battle Frontier. Once here, go to the southeastern-most side of the area. There should be a tree that looks odd. Use the Wailmer Pail to water it. Soodoo Woodoo should attack. Catch it, run, or kill it. Then, use Surf on the water where Soodoo Woodoo was located. Go down the waterfall and go to the left. There should be a cave. In the cave is a Smeargle. It knows one attack, Sketch. Sketch allows it to copy the last move that someone uses against it. Once you have obtained one move for Smeargle, go to the move tutor and teach him Sketch again. Then, go to a double battle and use Smeargle and the Pokemon that has the move you want him to learn. He can learn anything mine knows Strength, Hyper Beam, Outrage, and Thunder. repeat the step with the move tutor and he can learn any move.
Information in this section was contributed by Airhead91.

Hint: Smeargle: Elemental Blasts:
To teach the Elemental Blasts to another Pokemon, Smeargle, have him or her use Sketch. You will need the Johto starters from Pokemon XD to do this. Catch a Smeargle that is at least level 40. . Have the desired Johto starter first in your party after. Save first. Then, find a Ditto. Have the Ditto use Transform and change into the Johto starter. Bring out Smeargle and wait until Ditto uses the blast. Finally, use Sketch and you will now have Smeargle with that move (if it does not miss). If Sketch misses, simply restart the process. Do this two more times to have the others. To save leveling up, ask the Move Guru to re-teach Sketch to Smeargle.

Hint: Vulpix:
You can get a Vulpix by going to the top of Mt. Pye. It is rare but is more common before you go into the part of Mt. Pye with the smoke. Do not attack. Use five Ultra Balls, one Poke Ball, three Timerballs, and one Dive Ball. You can catch it with a Dive Ball instead of the Timer Balls.

Hint: Wiscash:
Catch a male Barboach and female Electrike that knows Spark and put them in the Day Care Center. When the Day Care man finds the egg, it should take awhile to hatch. Once it hatches, Barboach should be at level 5 and should know Mud Slap and Spark. At the next level it will learn Mud Sport and Water Sport. Go to the move deleter and get rid of Mud Sport because it is useless. Train it to level 41 and teach it Fissure. It should know Fissure, Water Sport and Spark. Then, after it evolves, teach it Ice Beam/Blizzard. Fight the Elite Four. If the moves were used correctly, it can defeat all four of them without fainting. Note: It is recommended that you train Wiscash before challenging them. By doing this it can get used of using Fissure without failing.

Hint: Raising stats easily:
Use the following strategies to raise the corresponding stat. Note: Baton Pass works well with any of these move combinations.
Information in this section was contributed by bckdude94.

Attack: Swords dance with Zangoose, Ninjask, or Absol; Dragon Dance with Gyrados.
Defense: Barrier with Girafferig; Iron Defense with Lairon.
Speed: Ninjask with speed boost (ability); Agility with Dragonair, Pikachu, or Ledyba; Dragon Dance with Gyrados.
Spec. Defense: Amnesia with Slowbro; Calm Mind with Alakazam works well.
Spec. Attack: Tail Glow with Volbeat or Illumise; Calm Mind with Alakazam.

Hint: Combos:
If you have Groudon, teach him Solarbeam. His ability will allow you to use Solarbeam without charging it first. If you have Kyogre, teach him Thunder. His ability will allow you to use Thunder without it ever missing its target. It will also be more powerful. Note: These tactics are no good when fighting Rayquaza, as his "Airlock" ability will negate all weather effects.
Information in this section was contributed by Pieter Moonen.

Hint: Weaknesses:
Every Pokemon has at least one weakness. It is helpful if you know the weakness of all types of Pokemon if you want to win easier. The following is a list of weaknesses for each type.

Attacking Pokemon (on the left).
Normal vs. none
Fire vs. Grass, ice, bug, steel
Water vs. Fire, ground, rock
Grass vs. Water, ground, rock
Electric vs. Water, flying
Ice vs. Grass, ground, flying, dragon
Fighting vs. Normal, ice, rock, dark, steel
Poison vs. Grass
Ground vs. Fire, electric, poison, rock, steel
Flying vs. Grass, fighting, bug
Psychic vs. Fighting, poison
Bug vs. Grass, psychic, dark
Rock vs. Fire, ice, flying, bug
Ghost vs. Ghost, psychic
Dragon vs. Dragon
Dark vs. Psychic, ghost
Steel vs. Ice, rock
Defending Pokemon (on the left)
Normal vs. Fighting
Fire vs. Water, Ground, Rock
Water vs. Grass, Electric
Grass vs. Fire, Ice, Poison, Flying, Bug
Electric vs. Ground
Ice vs. Fire, Fighting, Rock, Steel
Fighting vs. Flying, Psychic
Poison vs. Ground, Psychic
Ground vs. Water, Grass, Ice
Flying vs. Electric, Ice, Rock
Psychic vs. Bug, Ghost, Dark
Bug vs. Fire, Flying, Rock
Rock vs. Water, Grass, Fighting, Ground, Steel
Ghost vs. Ghost, Dark
Dragon vs. Dragon, Ice
Dark vs. Fighting, Bug
Steel vs. Fire, fighting, ground

Many Pokemon have two types, making it complicated to find its weakness, depending on the types. 99% of Pokemon with two types have a weakness that is simple to find. However, some are tricky. For example, Kingdra has one weakness, Dragon. Although some Pokemon like Sabyleye and Spiritomb (Pokemon Diamond/Pearl) may be Ghost and Dark type, they both still have one weakness, Fighting. However, because they are part Ghost, the only way to lay a punch on it is to use Foresight with a Machoke or a Hairyama (which makes all normal and fighting attacks effective against Ghosts regularly effective), and then using a Fighting type move to be extra effective. This is because Fighting is strong against Dark. Note: Foresight is not the only move that has this ability. Odor Sleuth is another move that works.

Hint: Baton Passers:
Information in this section was contributed by Alex.

To pass on Attack: Ninjask with Swords Dance (this is also good for speed).
To pass on Defense: Mr. Mime with Barrier.
To pass on Speed: Ninjask (recommended) or Girafarigwith Agility (Ninjask also has Speed Boost trait).
To pass on Special Defense: Gorebyss with Amnesia.
To pass on Special Attack: There are no moves that sharply increase Sp. Atk, so your best chance would be an Espeon with Calm Mind (this also increases Special Defense).
Note: If you pass on Speed, in rain, to a Pokemon with the Swift Swim trait, or a Pokemon with Chlorophyll in Sun, their speed will be increased even more.

Hint: Stop evolution:

Tidal with the S.S. Ticket which you obtain after defeating the Pokemon League from your father. Scott will tell you that the next time you get on the ferry, you will have the option to go to the Battle Frontier. When you have reached your destination, talk to the lady next to the ferry. She will give you the option to go to the Battle Frontier. Choose to go there. When you arrive, go in the building and Scott will arrive. After that the lady that greeted you will explain things.

Enter the cave that you see. This is the Desert Underpass. There you will encounter Ditto and other Pokemon for the first time. Go as far to the right in the cave as possible until you see a Fossil. Go up to it, and you will discover that it is the opposite from the one that you found in Mirage Tower on Route 111 in the Desert. Pick it up and go to Rustboro. Once there, go to the second floor of Devon and talk to the man at the bottom right of the screen. He will tell you that he is working on a device to resurrect fossils of Pokemon. He will ask if he can resurrect your Fossil. Answer "Yes". Go to the Pokemon Center and make a space in your party. Go back to the same person and you will get the opposite Pokemon; if you picked Claw Fossil you will get Root Fossil and vice versa.

When you go to the Mirage Tower and pick up one of the two Fossils, the other is lost. Once you defeat the Elite Four, go to the Fossil Maniac's house (Route 114). Go into his little tunnel. At the end there is another tunnel. Go in it. Go to the very end and you will find the Fossil that you did not get earlier. Note: This is also the only place that you can catch Dittos.

Hint: Paintings:
To get the paintings for the second floor of the Lilycove Art Museum, you have to win a Master Rank contest. The Pokemon you win the contest with must have that specific "trait" (Tough, Beauty, Cool, Cute or Smart) maxed out. The easiest way to do this is to give them PokeBlocks of the desired trait. One way to guarantee the color of the Pokeblock is to use the Cheri, Chesto, Pecha, Rawst or Aspear in the blending. After you win the Master Rank with the maxed-out Pokemon, an artist will come out of the contest room. He will tell you how great your Pokemon looked and that it inspired him to paint even better than usual. He will give you a ribbon, then go to put it in the museum. People should start gathering on the top floor after the second painting is put in.

Hint: Thunderbolt:

Once you have turned off the generator, there will be a ball there. Get it and that is your Thunder Stone. The second methid is slightly difficult. If you find any shards, check its color. The color is the stone that will you get. You must fly to Mossdeep City and talk to every person in every house. Note: They change houses frequently. Talk to them and give them your shard to get your stone.

Hint: Save TM:
When you have lost any important TM (Shadow Ball, Thunder, Fire Blast, Psychic, etc.), catch or transfer a Ditto. Grab the Pokemon that has the TM then breed it. You will now have the first Pokemon with a TM. This trick is useful when you have lost Eartquake, also is useful when you have any Pokemon to Battle Frontier higher than level 50.

Note: This trick cannot be used with legendary Pokemon.

Whenever you put a Pokemon in the Daycare Center, the experience it gets is determined on how many steps you take. In order to get a lot of experience, get on your bike. Go to the bike trail and keep going back and forth. It will add more experience because you will be taking more steps, and that is an easy place to ride. As a result your Pokemon will get a lot of experience, gain levels, and become strong.
Information in this section was contributed by Pikachu292.

Do not use Rare Candys or the Daycare to level your Pokemon at lower levels such as level60 or lower. This makes your Pokemon weaker. Instead, fight the television people. They use Exploud and Magnaton Double Battle. Have the Pokemon that you want to level up first with exp. Share and the other Pokemon with Amulet Coin that knows a move that hurts both opponent's Pokemon at the same time. The little Pokemon will gain 1000 experience per kill plus 7,000 coins.
Information in this section was contributed by meanmachine007.

Hint: Easy money:
To make money quickly, defeat the Elite Four with a Pokemon that is holding the Amulet Coin. Note: If your Pokemon faints, as long as it fought in the current battle you will still earn double the money you would normally. To continue this process if your Pokemon faints, at the end of the battle, just equip it to another Pokemon.

Have Zigzagoon or Linoone in your party. During your quests check the Pokemon menu by pressing Start and select the word "Pokemon". If Zigzagoon/Linoone shows an indication that it is holding an item take it. The following are possible items you can get. If you do not need the items, sell them for extra money. Note: It is recommended to have him join your team because he can learn Electric attack moves.
Information in this section was contributed by Arc bLAde08.

Zigzagoon
Common: Full heal, Antidote, Escape Rope, and Repel
Rare: Rare Candy and Nugget
Linoone
Common: Ultra Ball, Great Ball and X Attack
Rare: Nugget and Rare Candy

Hint: Easy catches:
Whenever you want to catch a wild Pokemon, you should first get one of your Pokemon to use moves such as Leer, Growl, and Flash. This will weaken your opponent. Attacking it might also help, but make sure that you do not defeat it. Also bring many Pokeballs with you.

Hint: Easy wins:
This trick requires a Shedinja, a Pokemon that knows Skill Swap, and a Ghost-Dark hybrid, and can only be used in a double battle. Enter the Shedinja and the Pokemon that knows Skill swap into battle first. Have the Pokemon that knows Skill swap use it on Shedinja. Then, switch Shedinja out with your Ghost-Dark hybrid, and have the Pokemon who knows Skill Swap use it on your Ghost-Dark hybrid. Because no move can deal Super Effective damage to a Ghost-Dark hybrid, using this trick to swap Shedinja's Wonderguard over to one will make it completely invincible. However, even with Wonderguard, the Ghost-Dark hybrid will only be invulnerable to attacks. This means that special conditions, recoil, etc. will still do damage to it.

Hint: Easy healing without a Pokemon Center:
If there is a PC around, deposit all your Pokemon using "Move Pokemon". Get a pokemon you do not need. You must do this because you cannot put in all six Pokemon at once. Then, turn off the PC and log off it completely. Immediately get back on and get your Pokemon again. They should now have maximum PP and HP.

Hint: Heal easily with a Cacnea or a Cacturne:
Get a Cacnea or a Cacturne and level it up so that it learns Leech Seed, Ingrain and Absorb. Next, get the item "Leftovers" and have Cacnea or Cacturne hold it. Use Leech Seed, then use Ingrain, and keep doing Absorb or another attack. At the end of each turn, Leftovers will also give you some HP. You can also have Cacturne or Cacnea use Sandstorm. This does some damage and also increases Cancea's or Cacturne's evasion (because of Sand Veil).

Hint: Hatch eggs faster:
Note: This trick works for hatching eggs as well as boosting up your Daycare Center Pokemon's experience. First, make sure you have the Mach bike so that you can go faster. Fly to Mauville City. Go in front of the town sign, then get on your bike. Go as far left as you can, then back to the right and repeat. You will get a lot of steps very quickly because it is a long ride with nothing to bump into, which will make your Pokemon grow faster. It usually takes about five minutes of this to hatch an egg.
Information in this section was contributed by Moversgirl.

When trying to hatch eggs faster, place a Pokemon in your party whose ability is either Flame Body or 'Magma Armor (for example, Slugma or Macargo). The ambient heat will incubate the egg and cause it to hatch twice as fast.

Hint: Egg hatching:
If you are trading (for example, starting Pokemon), and you want their OT to be you, just trade the eggs. When the Pokemon hatch, they will be OT'd you.

Hint: Berry collecting:
There are a few people that give you one or more berries.
Information in this section was contributed by eenhoorn roos.

Sootopolis City: Kiri will give you two berries.
Lilycove City: The gentleman will give you one berry.
Route 120: The little girl telling you about taking care of berries will give you one berry.
Route 111: The woman near Trainer Brooke will give you one berry.
Route 114: The boy under Lanette's house will give you one berry.
The Berry Master will give you two berries and his wife will give you one berry.

Hint: Refill PP without using Ether or Elixir:
Note: This trick can only be done is the move is a TM. It can not be a HM. Delete the move you wish to be refilled with another TM. After you have done this, change the move you have just taught your Pokemon with the first move. For example, if you want to refill your Fire Blast and do not have any Ethers or Elixirs, change Fire Blast with Flamethrower. Then, teach your Pokemon Fire Blast with a TM. This can be done as many times as desired, as you have enough TMs.

Information in this section was contributed by Nighthawk.

Hint: The sick girl:

Hint: Battle Frontier:
You should use different Pokemon roles for different battle facilities.

Battle Tower: Try a Sweeper, a Drainer and another tactical position (Tank, Toxicshuffler etc.)
Battle Arena: Sweepers: one Physical, one Special, one Mixed.
Battle Pyramid: Use two Sweepers and a Criti-Ken (Blaziken set) as he is good for the Boss.
Battle Factory: The Rental Pokemon are the only option, but make sure you use good sets. Pokemon that have Toxic are useful.
Battle Palace: Sweepers are your best option. Make sure the Physicals have Adamant Nature and the Specials have Modest Nature. Do not use Mixed Sweepers. This facility is all about natures. There is a little girl in a house somewhere who tells you what your Pokemon like to do in the Battle Palace. If she says "It likes to battle", it will use attacking moves most often. If she says "It looks after itself", it mostly uses moves such as Protect, or ones that raises its stats. If she says "It likes to be sneaky", it mostly uses moves that inflict status conditions on the opponent or lower its stats. Sometimes she will say "If it gets enough ouchies, it will do something different". This means that when its HP gets below half, it will do what she says (above).
Battle Dome: Tanks and Sweepers are best.
Battle Pike: Sweepers.

Hint: Easy Tough Contest wins:
Catch a Mawile in the wild, or have one traded from another version. Train it. At level 41, Mawile will want to learn Iron Defense. Teach it Iron Defense. At level 46, Mawile will want to learn Stockpile, Swallow, and Spit Up. Teach it all three of those moves without making it forget Iron Defense. Then, max out its Tough condition. After that, go to the chairman of the Pokemon Fan Club with your Mawile in the lead. If you maxed out its Tough condition, he should give you a Yellow Scarf. Give it to Mawile. Then, take part in a Tough Contest. Have Mawile do moves in the following order: Stockpile, Swallow, Stockpile, Spit Up, Iron Defense. If you follow these steps exactly, you will win even the Master Rank contests without much of a problem.
Information in this section was contributed by Samuel Clifton.

Hint: Easy Battle Dome wins:
Get an Absol level 50 that knows Perish Song and an Exploud that knows Protect and Double Team. On the first turn use Perish Song and Double Team. Then with Exploud use Protect, then Double Team, etc. After three turns, all Pokemon will faint except fir Exploud.
Information in this section was contributed by daniel cisneros.

Hint: Finding the Team Aqua leader:
Go to the Team Aqua hideout right off Lilycove City before you have been to Magmas Hideout on Jagged Pass. Inside, there are two Team Aqua members. One tells you where Archie is, and the other tells what he is doing.
Information in this section was contributed by Ella McIntosh.

Hint Trick Master hiding places:
The Trick Master's house is located at Route 110.

Maze 1: Go to the top right corner of the table and select it.
Maze 2: Go to the right plant.
Maze 3: Go to the right drawer (without the mirror).
Maze 4: Go to the left window.
Maze 5: Go to the left plant.
Maze 6: Go to the mirror on the right.
Maze 7: Go to the right window.
Maze 8: Go to the left bottom cushion and select it. He is there, but invisible.

Note: In some of the mazes you will need an HM Move to get through. The HM moves you will need are Cut (for Maze 1), Rock Smash (for Maze 3), and Strength (for Maze 4).
Information in this section was contributed by Bobby Vadhanapanich.

Hint: Defeating Flannery:
If you do not have Mudkip for your starter Pokemon, catch a Tailow or a Swellow. Make sure it is level 32 or higher and knows Wing Attack. When she sends out Camerupt (her third Pokemon), she will probably tell it to use Earthquake. Tailow and Swellow are Flying-type Pokemon. Wing Attack does well against Fire-type Pokemon.
Information in this section was contributed by hurley.

Hint: Defeating Leader Juan:
The last gym leader is very difficult to defeat and may just be harder than the champion himself. Four of his Pokemon are relatively easy to defeat. First, he will use Luvdisc. It can be defeated with one strong Electric attack (preferably Thunderbolt). Next, he will use Whiscash. Do not use Electric attacks because Whiscash is also a Ground type. Defeat him using a Grass type (a Water type can also be used). He will then use Walrein. Again, a strong Electric attack should do. His fourth Pokemon is a Water/Dark type. An Electric or a Fighting type can defeat it with ease. The last of his Pokemon is a level 46 Kingdra. It mostly uses Double Team, so you cannot hit him, and if you manage to hurt him he will use Rest to recover. Other than that, he attacks with Ice Beam and Water Pulse. Your best chance is to have a fast Pokemon (preferably a Crobat or Absol) and teach it Taunt. Make sure you can use Taunt before Kingdra starts to use Double Team. If Taunt works, he can only use Ice Beam or Water Pulse and a few decent Ice or Dragon type attacks should take him out.
Information in this section was contributed by Pieter Moonen.

Hint: Defeating the Pike Queen:
The Battle Pike is at the Siviper by the Pokemon Center on the left. When you defeat it at open level or level 50, the lady who tells you directions will say that a horrible fate is about to befall you. When you go into a room. she might heal one or two of your Pokemon. You will then battle the Pike Queen. Note: She will have Siviper, Shuckle and Milotic. Try using a Psychic Pokemon such as Alakazam, with Psychic and Thunderpunch.
Information in this section was contributed by cay lubb.

Get a Houndoom at level 50 give it the moves Flamethrower, Taunt, Double-Edge, and Faint attack. Then, get a Ampharos with Thunderbolt, Strength, Mega Punch, and Dynamic Punch. Get a Quassire with Surf, Earthquake, Ice Beam, and Slam. All the first forms of the three Pokemon are found in the Safari Zone after the Pokemon League. First, use Houndoom's Flamethrower two times on Seviper. Be wary of Seviper's move Swagger. Then, switch Houndoom with Ampharos, because the next pokemon is Milotic (a Water type). Use Thunderbolt until it faints. Her last Pokemon is Shuckle. The Pokemon has no attack moves. It has Rest and Toxic. Bring out Houndoom and first use Taunt and Flamethrower. Use Taunt after Flamethrower, then repeat that in a pattern until it faints. If you use Taunt, Shuckle uses Struggle. You will then probably get the Luck Symbol.

Hint: Defeating the Elite Four:
Take a normal level Pokemon with a one hit K.O. move and a lock on move. Also have a large number of Ethers and Max Potions. Just lock on and attack for and easy K.O.
Information in this section was contributed by Ben Kugler.

Use the following Pokemon against the Elite Four:

To defeat Drake The Dragon Master, make sure you have a level 80 Rayquaza. Use the TM Dragon Claw on it. Once you fight Drake The Dragon Master, use Dragon Claw on all of his Pokemon. All of them should faint. You can then move on to Wallace the champion.
Information in this section was contributed by killer_ivan_06.

Make sure you have a level 79 Kyogre, level 73 Groudon, and level 83 Raquaza (in that order) in your party. For first two Elites, use Kyogre (Hydro Pump and Water Spout). For the Ice, use Groudon (Solar Beam and Fire Blast). For the dragon Elite, use Raquaza (Dragon Claw on all). Use Raquaza for Wallace (Dragon Claw on Wailord, and try Fire Blast or Hyper Beam on the rest).
Information in this section was contributed by STARSKY10265.

Sidney has a Shiftry and a Cacturn. Get Swampert to use Earthquake and they should die in two turns. Phoebe has Ghost type Pokemon. Have Swampert use Muddy Water and they should die in two or three turns. Note: Surf is also good; teach it to Tentacruel. Glacia has Ice type Pokemon. Use Swampert's Earthquake and they should die in one or two turns. Note: Have a Walrein use Earthquake. This is optional if you do not have two Pokemon with Earthquake. The battle will take longer. Have a lot of Max Potions. Drake has a Salamance. Have a Pokemon use Dragon Breath (Flygon recommended). For Shelgon, use Muddy Water. For Wallace, use Earthquake for all except Garadose. For him, use Water Gun and Muddy Water.

First, get through Victory Road. Then, heal up at the Pokemon Center. Check the levels of all the Pokemon in your party. Train all Pokemon in your party up to level 50 or higher. Save the game at the entrance that you use to get into the rooms to fight the Elite Four when ready. The rest is purely up to skill and chance. After you defeat an Elite Four member, save the game. If you lose to the next member, turn off the game and go back to the saved game after the last member was defeated. This will keep your prize money in your pocket, and bring back any health restoration items that you may have used.

Hint: Secondary pokemon abilities:
There are several abilities that have a secondary effect.
Information in this section was contributed by Alex.

Static: Makes wild Electric-type Pokemon appear more often in the field if user is first in the party.
Magnet Pull: Makes wild Steel-type Pokemon appear more often in the field if user is first in the party.
Swarm: Pokemon cry in the background more often in the field.
Compoundeyes: Draws wild Pokemon holding items more often if user is first in the party.
Intimidate/Keen Eye: Decreases the chance of a wild Pokemon encounter by 10% if user is first in the party.
Hustle: Wild Pokemon are more likely to have a higher level than the Pokemon that knows Hustle (which must be first in the party).
Cute Charm: Increases chance of the wild Pokemon being of the opposite gender to the Pokemon with Cute Charm (which must be first in the party).
Lightningrod: You wil get calls on your PokeNav from registered trainers more often.
Synchronize: If Synchronizer is first in the party, wild Pokemon have a 50% chance of being the same nature as the Synchronizer.

Hint: Factory Head Nolan:
After 21 consecutive wins (1 on 1 only), The Factory Head, Nolan will battle you. He uses rental Pokemon as well. You cannot determine what Pokemon he is going to use.
Information in this section was contributed by DarkZrex911.

Hint: Stronger Rollout move:
When you have a Pokemon with Rollout, using the move Defense Curl before using Rollout will boost the attack of Rollout by X1. For example, Marill will learn Defense Curl at level 3, then will learn Rollout at level 15.
Information in this section was contributed by Nate Drier.

Hint: Finding new Pokemon:
If you are working on your Pokedex and cannot seem to find the Pokemon you need to complete it, enter the appealing contests in Lilycove City. When you enter, there could be Pokemon that you cannot find in the wild, only from trainers.
Information in this section was contributed by Otao333.

Use the Match Call on your Pokenav and wait for your opponent to train their Pokemon to evolve into ones that you have not seen yet. When this happens, battle them.
Information in this section was contributed by Otao333.

Hint: Avoid Brawly:
If you have reached Dewford and battled everyone you can but cannot defeat Brawly, go through the Granite Cave and give the letter to Steven. It is possible to get through without Flash. Once you leave the cave, talk to Mr. Briney. He will now take you to Slateport. You can now train your Pokemon at Slateport and continue in the game without battling Brawly. If you do not have a Pokemon that is effective against Fighting types, catch a Zubat in the Granite Cave. Then get it to level 21 and have it learn Wing Attack. It is very effective against Brawly's Pokemon.
Information in this section was contributed by jack woodrup.

Hint: Getting through Dewford Gym easily:
Catch a Sableye or have one traded. Battle using only it throughout the entire gym. Alternately if you picked Torchic, keep Combusken from forgetting Peck, which is strong against Fighting types.

Smart Contest: Cute and tough
Tough Contest: Cool and smart

Hint: Easy badges:
Before battling a gym leader, you always want to win on the first try. Before you challenge a gym leader. find out the type of Pokemon they have. Try to find an advantage. For example, if you are battling a Rock Pokemon. send a Grass type Pokemon to fight. Also try to raise your Pokemon's level by at least 8. If you still cannot get the badge, raise the level more.
Information in this section was contributed by Pikachu292.

Hint: Secret badges:
After defeating the Elite 4 you will get one secret badge. Battle Scott, and he also will give one as well, and so will Wally.

If you wish to have a power-house team go with all legendaries, such as Rayquaza, Kyogre, Groudon, Laltias, Latios, etc., all at level 100. If you wish to fight with your friends or in competitions, use mixed teams with different uses than just attacks. For example, try a Ninjask and teach it Substitute and Baton Pass. The other could be Swords Dance and an attack such as Aerial Ace (+Stab bonus). Stall your opponent by substituting and after a few turns Baton Pass to a very strong slow Pokemon. Ninjask's Speed Boost will give the speed to the strong Pokemon and allow him to rip through your opponent's team XD. A simple setup is as follows.

Ninjask
Lonely Nature @ Liechi Berry
Trait: Speed Boost
252 ATT EVs
252 Speed EVs or 252 HP EVs
Aerial Ace/Silver Wind
Swords Dance
Substitute
Baton Pass
Marowak
Lonely Nature @ Thick Club (ATTx2)
Trait: Rock Head
252 ATT EVs
252 Speed EVs
Hidden Power Ghost
Bonemerang
Double Edge
Brick Break

Every turn that Ninjask stalls, he will get +50% of the original speed and the Liechi Berry will increase its attack +50%. Baton Pass these stats to Marowak for an attack +/- (280x2)+50%=840 ATT. Also, it is maxed out Speed will be after 4 subs +/- 185+200% = 555 Speed. This will wipe out almost everything. Try to save Ninjaks's Sub for protected Carnage.

Battle Pickniker Diana and Annie. You might notice that they are training a Pokemon named "??". It looks like two large white pixelated question marks. Your game will freeze. Restart the game then, go to Route 116. You will find a "??" at random. "??" has no special ability and only knows "Tackle".

Glitch: Dialogue mistake:
In the battle tent at Fallarbor town is a girl who says that her favorite battle tent is the one in Fallarbor because the trainers have put their faith in their Pokemon. She is actually talking about the one in Verdanturf Town.

Glitch: Duplicate Pokemon:
To do this trick you must have access to the Battle Frontier. Go to the Battle Tower. Go to the PC in the corner. Put the Pokemon to be duplicated in the PC then save. Withdraw the Pokemon. Talk to the woman behind the counter on the far right. When asked if you want to save, say "No", then reset. When you regain control of your character you should be in front of the counter where you said "No". Go to the PC and the Pokemon should be in your party where you deposited them. Note: Duplicate only five Pokemon at a time. If you move other Pokemon in the PC while you are duplicating, the non-cloning Pokemon will be deleted.
