cody ketchum.

Hint: Deoxys:
Defeat the Mt. Battle Master twice.
Joseph Balsdon.

Hint: Entei:
When you reach Mt. Battle and battle to the top, you will face Cipher Admin Dokim. He has an Entei as a Shadow Pokemon.
Nutxpert1 and Chrismc.

Hint: Ho-Oh:
Purify all 48 Shadow Pokemon and defeat 100 trainers on Mt. Battle using only the Pokemon from your story mode team. Note: Your PC must have an empty slot.

Purify all 48 Shadow Pokemon; complete Mt. Battle in story mode; and complete Mt. Battle in battle mode. After doing all of this, you should be rewarded with Ho-oh.
Adrian B.

When you receive Ho-oh, its Original Trainer will be Mattle.

Win the battles at the unknown place and watch the scene to see Ho-Oh.
Grant Newkirk.

Hint: Jurachi:
To get Jurachi, load him into the Game Boy Advance from the bonus disc. Then, transfer him to Pokemon Colosseum.

Jirachi can also be loaded onto the Game Boy Advance if you have progressed past a certain point on Pokemon Channel.

Hint: Latios and Latias:
Catch Latios and Latias in Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire. Trade them to Pokemon Colosseum for any purified Pokemon. Note: If they are at level 100 from a Max Stats, do not put them in your PC. They will go back to their original level.

Hint: Raikou:
Raikou can be found as a Shadow Pokemon of Cipher Admin Ean in the Shadow Pokemon Lab.
Chrismc and Robby Andoga.

To get Raikou you must battle Ein at either the Pokemon Shadow Lab or The Relgam Tower. Raikou will be his fourth Pokemon, and you must snag him with an Ultra Ball.

Hint: Suicune:
Suicune can be found as a Shadow Pokemon of Cipher Admin Venus in The Under.

To catch Suicune easier, before you fight Venus you should know her Pokemon. She has Vileplume, Delcatty, Steelix, Banette, and Suicune. You can easily faint Vileplume and Steelix with Entei's Fire Blast. Banette will go down with Umbreon's Dark moves. When you get to Suicune, use Umbreon's Confuse Ray. Then, wear it down with Secret Power and it will eventually get paralyzed. If Suicune's health is in the yellow or red zone affected by paralysis, then throw a Net Ball at it.

If you did not catch Suicune in Realgam Tower and failed again in the Deep Colosseum, have every other Shadow Pokemon (Entei, Raikou, Shuckle, Suddowoodo) and do it again. Every time you will face Lady Venus. If you do not catch it, keep trying. Note: Every Shadow Pokemon you missed can be found somewhere, at possibly the same location.
Michelle Crooks.

Hint: Togetic:
Defeat the Deep King Agnol in the Deep Colosseum. If you have all the Shadow Pokemon you will get a message about someone attacking people with a Shadow Togetic. Rush to the Outskirt Stand and fight him.
Adrian B.

Hint: Tyranitar:
This is the strongest Shadow Pokemon in the game. You only have one attempt at this, so use the Master Ball. The leader of Cipher has it.
Adrian B.

If missed your chance to get the Shadow Pokemon Tyrannitar and MetaGross, go back to where the Cipher President and his minions are located. You have a chance to fight them all over, and retrieve some of the Shadow Pokemon you did not catch. Metagross and Tyrannitar are some of the most difficult Shadow Pokemon to get.

Hint: Croconaw, Bayleff and Quilava:
After getting one starter Shadow Pokemon at the beginning, you need to get the rest of them. Complete the game and go to the Snagem Hideout. Look through the hideout until you see a man in only one color (green, blue or red). Battle him and snag his Shadow Pokemon. You will soon get an email. When you get it, go to the Kids Guild and talk to Nett. Then, go by the Junk Shop and fight Gurks. Talk to Gurks then go to the Shadow Pokemon Lab. Go to the last room of the Lab (where you fought Ein). You will see a person. Battle him and snag his Shadow Pokemon.
Adrian B.

The second time that you battle Folly and the other person you will encounter three people in either Green, Red or Blue at all the entrances or exits. Battle them but do not defeat them. Just snag and lose and just attack yourself. You will snag all Croconaw, Bayleaf and Quilava, and on your third battle snag and win.

Hint: Catching the Legendary dogs:
All three Legendary dogs (Entei, Suicune, and Raikou) are best caught with Ultra Balls, but it possible to do it with Great Balls.

When the Legendary Pokemon are on red, use a Pokeball. If it does not catch the Pokemon, use a Great Ball and it will be as if you used a Master Ball.

Hint: Getting a powerful Pokemon:
Catch a female Gyarados with Hydro Pump and a male Bagon, Shelgon, or Salamence on your Pokemon Sapphire or Ruby game and breed them. Hatch the egg and the Bagon should have Hydro Pump. Then, transfer the Bagon to Pokmeon Coliseum and raise the it into Salamence, then get to level 100. It will try to learn Dragon Claw at level 79 and Double Edge at level 93. You will now have a very powerful Pokemon now.

First, get a male Gyarados or a male Milotic that knows Hydro Pump in Pokemon Sapphire or Ruby. Note: This may require some training. Next, catch a female Bagon. Now, place the male Gyarados/Milotic at the Day Care Center with the female Bagon (or Shelgon or Salamence) and wait for an egg to appear. When the Egg hatches, your Bagon will know Hydro Pump. Train your Bagon and keep it from evolving until it reaches level 49. This is because at level 41 Bagon learns Crunch, and at level 49 it learns Dragon Claw. Once it reaches level 49, allow it to learn Dragon Claw on its own and allow it to evolve. When it reaches level 50, allow it to evolve into Salamence, and at the same time teach it Fly (which it learns on its own). You will now have a level 50 Salamence with Dragon Claw, Crunch, Hydro Pump, and Fly. Best of all, you will have wasted no TMs. Transfer this Salamence to Pokemon Colosseum. It is a great Pokemon to use in the Solo Battle Coliseums. You may also keep training this Salamence until level 100 and use it on the harder Coliseums.

Hint: Getting the three starters:
You can get the remaining starters after you complete the game. You will receive an email that tells you where to go. You will then get another email that reveals the location of your last starter.

Hint: Making sure your Pokemon evolves:
If you unlocked Mt. Battle, fight there with a Shadow Pokemon. Win three times in the levels. Note: You must make that you purify it after doing this.

If you have a Shadow Pokemon that can evolve, do not leave it at the Day Care or it will not evolve.
Saul Hayden.

Hint: Remove confusion from your Pokemon:
You must have at least three Pokemon to do this correctly. During a battle, select your confused Pokemon. Take it out of the game and switch it with another Pokemon. When you put the confused Pokemon back in battle it will no longer be confused.
Jeff DeFalco.

Hint: Amulet Coin:
Successfully complete the game, then go to the Deep Colosseum. You will find Silver Teeth as you are about to enter. Go to the old man outside the herb shop. Give them to him, he will give you UFO Disk -L. This will enable you to go left and get the Amulet Coin. The Amulet Coin gives you more money when you use the Pokemon equipped with it in battle.

Hint: Badges:
Defeat Mirror B (Red Badge), Dakim (Green Badge), Venus (Blue Badge), and Ein (Yellow Badge). Use all the badges to open the door in the Realgam Tower. You will also get them at the Tower.
Adrian B.

Hint: Cologne Case:
A girl east of the Pokemon Center in Agate Village will give it to you. She is in blue clothes. Answer "No" to her in order to get it.
Adrian B.

The Cologne Case is found in Agate Village. A girl with a blue shirt gives it to you. Go to the Deep Colosseum after you get the Amulet Coin. Give the Amulet Coin to Umbreon or Espeon. Win the challenge and you will get about 44,000 coins. Then, go back to Agate Village and to the Pokemart. Buy Vivid Scents and give them to your Shadow Pokemon to purify them.

Hint: Coupons:
Battle at Mt. Battle and clear an area. Go inside a metal box at the end and talk to the lady. She will give you Coupons. The more areas you clear, the more Coupons you will get.
Adrian B.

Hint: Disks:
Adrian B.

F-Disk: Defeat Dakim at Mt. Battle.
R-Disk: From the kid locked up in the cage, in the Under.
U-Disk: In a chest, in the Subway, near the boxes.
D-Disk: Defeat Head Gonzap in the Snagem Hideout.
L-Disk: Talk to the old man in front of the Herb Shop.

Hint: Exp. Share:
Go behind Eagun's house and down the slope. You will find a chest containing an Exp. Share.
Adrian B.

Hint: L-Disk:
Use the D-Disk on the UFO. Keep hugging the left wall while pressing A and you should get the Steel Teeth. Talk to old man in front of the herb shop. Give him the teeth and he will give you the L-Disk.
Adrian B.

Hint: Master Ball:
After you have the badges you will get an email from Eagun. Go to him in Agate Village. Talk to him and you will receive a Master Ball.
Adrian B.

To get the Master Ball faster, go to Realgam Tower and defeat the four Bosses (Dakim will be battled after the previous Bosses) in this order: Miror B., Lady Venus, and Ein. If done correctly, when you are at the save point inside you should get an e-mail from Eagun. Your partner will respond by saying "Should we keep going or go to Agate Village?". Go to Agate Village and talk to Eagun. He will give you the Master Ball. Note: If you did not capture Entei before, you can use the Master Ball glitch to get Entei and still have your Master Ball.

Use the following trick to get unlimited Master Balls. You need two types of Pokeballs to do this. To get all the Master Balls desired, go into a battle where you must capture a Shadow Pokemon. With your first Pokemon, choose the Master Ball and aim it at the Shadow Pokemon. With your second Pokemon, switch the Master Ball into a different spot by pressing Y and pressing A on the location you want it at. Once you capture the Pokemon, check back in your bag and the Master Ball will still be there. You must do this each time you try to catch a Pokemon.
Saul Hayden.

Hint: Unlimited Masterballs:
Select the Masterball, then the Pokemon to use it on. With the second Pokemon, go to "Items". Once there, switch the Masterball with another type of ball by trading spots. Then, just attack with the second Pokemon.
Leo Parker.

Hint: Premier Ball:
When you need to buy Pokeballs at Outskirt, stand by max Pokeballs (which is 19). You will get a Premier Ball from the shopkeeper.
tyler tschann.

Hint: Quick Claw:
As you enter Agate Village, turn right after the hill and go across the bridge. Directly in front of the "P.C." sign is a hill leading down. Go down this hill, then move downward. Follow the path to the right around the side of the hill and open the little box to find the Quick Claw. The Quick Claw is a hold item that often lets the Pokemon holding it attack first in battle.

Hint: Silk Scarf:
When you arrive in Agate Village, go left past the hut. You will see roots and a dark area in the middle. Go in and you will be in a secret cave. Inside there will be two chests. One has a Silk Scarf and the other has two Ultra Balls.

Hint: Strategy Memo:
Go to the Pre-Gym and talk to the teacher to get the Strategy Memo. You can always update your Strategy Memo by talking to the teacher again.
Adrian B.

Hint: Time Flutes:
The first Time Flute is obtained after you defeat Dakim. The second Time Flute is obtained when you put the U-Disk in the UFO (it is in a chest in the room).
Adrian B.

A third Time Flute can be found on the 100th Mt. Battle area. In order to get it, you must have at least level 60 Pokemon.
Ballbuster14S and Hacker.

Hint: Trade Machine:
Defeat all the opponents at Realgam's Colosseum to unlock Trade Machine to transfer Pokemon to and from Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire.

Successfully complete the game then go to the Pokemon Center in Pheanic town. Go downstairs and talk to the woman. You will now able to transfer Pokemon from your game to Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire and vice-versa.

Defeat the evil mayor in the tower after Nascour, then go to the Trading Center in Phenac at the Pokecenter. Talk to the lady, then connect a Game Boy Advance with Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire. Trade the Pokemon you purified. Pokemon from Pokemon Crystal, such as the three legendary dogs can be traded to your Game Boy Advance. However, the Pokemon from Pokemon Crystal do not go in your Pokedex.

Use the following trick to transfer Pokemon from Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire to Pokemon Colosseum, without having to lose a purified Pokemon. While playing Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire, look for a Nincada, and catch it. Transfer the Nincada to Pokemon Colosseum. Leave Nincada at the top of your party, holding EXP Share. Make sure you have a strong Pokemon to back up Nincada so that it does not faint without gaining experience. Also leave an empty slot in your party. Then, battle with Nincada until it evolves (level 20). If you had an empty slot in your party and also a spare Pokeball, not only will your Nincada have evolved into Ninjask, but you will have Shedinja in your party as well. This means you made one Pokemon become two. Then, go back into the Trading Machine, and trade Ninjask back to the game, recovering the Pokemon originally traded Nincada for. Use the freshly "created" Shedinja and trade it for another Pokemon of your choice, such as Kyogre or Groundon, or even one of the three starters. Note: You can use this trick to get all three starters and more than one Celebi (if you have the Bonus Disc), but it requires you to start a new game in order to get a different starter.

Hint: Train Key:
To get the Train Key, go down to the train station. Go in and Venus will be there. Follow her into the train. However, she will not be in there. Go back out and Venus will be there. She will talk to you, then leave. When you go out of the train station, you should she something shiny on the ground. Go over to it and pick it up. It will be the Train Key. Go back to the train and use it. It will take you to where you need to go next.
ken wright.

Hint: Deep Colosseum:
Use the D-Disk on the UFO to get to the Deep Colosseum.
Adrian B.

Hint: Deep King Agnol:
Complete the Deep Colosseum four times. On the fifth time you should fight Deep King Agnol in the last match.
Adrian B.

Hint: Ein's Lab:
To get the code for the locked door in Ein's Lab, get all three DNA samples and identify them all with the DNA machine inside one of the rooms in the lab.

Hint: Herb Shop:
Use the F-Disk on the UFO. Instead of going in the Under Colosseum go left and up to find a Herb Shop.
Adrian B.

Hint: Orre Colosseum:
Get through the Phenac Stadium, Pyrite Colosseum, and Under Colosseum in single and double battle modes to unlock the level 50 Orre Colosseum. Get through the Tower Colosseum in single and double battle modes to unlock the level 100 Orre Colosseum.

Hint: Phenac Colosseum stats:
The Pokemon used at the Phenac Colosseum may differ slightly, but the following are their usual stats. The woman will ask you to enter through the right or left doors. Either one has basically the same level Pokemon. For the right doors, all the Pokemon have levels in the low 40s. The lowest is level 40, and the highest is level 42. The left doors are practically the same as the right doors. The lowest is level 40 and the highest is level 42.

Hint: Relgam Tower: Pokemon:
The Pokemon in Relgam Tower are Delibird, Sunflora, Heracross, Skarmary, Miltank, Absol, Houndoom, Tropius, Metagross, and Tyranitar.

Hint: Team Snagem Hideout:
Successfully complete the game and go to Pyrite Town. Go inside the secret passage by the bookshelf. Talk to one of the kids and fight Cail (the person with the green hair that hangs out near the entrance of Pyrite Town). After you win the battle, talk to Cail. The map will now show the Snagem Hideout.
Adrian B.

Team Snagem's hideout (the one you blew up in the beginning) has many trainers and some good items.

Hint: Tower Colosseum: Trainers:
First, walk around in the courtyard and fight Miror B., Venus, Dakim, and Ein. You can catch their Shadow Pokemon if you missed your chance earlier. They will give you a badge, after which you will open a big door with a Pokeball on it. You can now train a little or go to the elevator and talk to the man. He is Silva in disguise and will let you on the elevator. You will go up and see Nascour go up in an elevator. The girl will then tell you that you cannot use that one. If you go downstairs there will be a room on the left with a healing station and PC. There is another elevator here. When you go there, the leader of Team Snagem, Gonzap, will battle you. He has a Shadow Skarmory. He will ask you to join him again. Tell him no, then he will let you by. When you go up, it will show an intermission sequence and Nascour will taunt you by saying that Gonzap was too much for you. He will then tell you that you must pay them back for their defeat. There are six trainers to face. The Tower Colosseum trainers are a bodybuilder, a chaser, a cipher peon, and another cipher peon. They each have a Shadow Pokemon. (Miltank, Absol, Houndoom, and Tropius). You will then fight Nascour. He has a Shadow Metagross. The mayor of Phenac City will arrive and reveals that he is the leader of the Shadow Pokemon operation. He has a Shadow Tyranitar.

Note: You can say "Yes" to Gonzap, but he will not believe you so you can just continue with the game.

Hint: The Under:
After defeating Dakim at Mt. Battle, travel to the lab. Just walk a few steps and check your email. The officers have captured more criminals in Pyrite Town. Travel there, and on the sleeping criminal remove the key. Then, go back to the Warehouse and take the elevator all the way down.

Hint: Purify quickly:
Get the Time Flute and call Celebi. When Shadow Pokemon see Celebi, they will become purified. Alternately, get the Time Flute to Jurachi to do the job.
r.wenzel and CSMacias.

Get the Cologne Case and buy about eight Vivid Scents. Then, use them on a Shadow Pokemon.
Adrian B.

To purify faster, battle at the Phenac City Pregym. Battle as much as needed. Then, go to the construction site that looks awful and keep going through the paths. Note: You can always go to the fountain in Phenac City.

When you have just snagged a Pokemon, go to the Agate Village and buy 30 Vivid Scents. Then, give them to the Shadow Pokemon that you just caught.

Buy how many Vivid Scents desired, then go to the pre-gym. Go to the elevator where the trainers came from to battle you. Go in it. You will see different natures. Go to the nature that best fits your Shadow Pokemon. Then, use Vivid Scents on your Shadow Pokemon and it should lower your Pokemon's Shadow Tank more than usual. Note: If you go to a nature that does not match your Shadow Pokemon, it will lower your Pokemon's Shadow Tank less than normal.

Put a Shadow Pokemon in the Day Care and get six more Shadow Pokemon for your party before leaving. Then, go to the entrance of Agate Village. Go up, all the way left, then up again until you get to a location on the edge where the screen shakes while you hold Up. Position the controller to keep moving in that direction and allow the game to idle in this condition. After awhile, the Pokemon's bars should be lower.
Waterice via Psice Man.

An easy way to purify your Pokemon is to call its name in battle if the Pokemon goes into hyper mode. You can tell if your pokemon is in hyper mode because it will have a red aura coming off it. The Pokemon will also have red around its picture and name instead of black.
jack alen.

When their Shadow gauge is on the point of reading "The door to its heart is about to be open. Undo the final lock!", go to Atage Village. Go to the relic stone. It will say something about a key. Select the Pokemon whose heart needs the key. After you select the Pokemon, it will learn a new move that will automatically remove Shadow Rush, but it gains all the experience points that it earned in all its battles. If that Pokemon battled a lot it will likely evolve.

If you have any Shadow Pokemon with its door nearly open and needs the final lock unlocked, take it to the Relic Of Celebi in the forest. You will see a green aura. Choose a Shadow Pokemon and its heart will be unlocked.

When you get the Amulet Coin go to the outskirt stand where the train is located. You will find a rider with two Zigzagoons. Note: Some of his Pokemon will evolve; be careful if you are not strong enough). Attach the Amulet Coin to Espeon in one slot in your team and have the Shadow Pokemon in the other slot. Battle the rider Willie, who is standing outside of the train. With luck, you can defeat him without any of your Pokemon fainting. You will get some money and lower the heart gauge of the Shadow Pokemon. Save the game, reset your system, then resume. Return to the train. He should be available to battle again. Repeat the process as desired.

Use the following trick to easily purify missed or post-Story mode Shadow Pokemon (such as Togetic or the other two Jhoto starters). Send over a Luxury Ball from Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, or LeafGreen. Trade back and forth enough times to collect a lot of Luxury Balls, and have them in your inventory. Do what you would normally do to make it easier to capture the Shadow Pokemon and use only the Luxury Balls. After capturing the Pokemon in the Luxury Ball, have it in either the first or second slot of your party and battle with it. By time you finish the third battle after capturing it, in terms of the usual two returning Trainers in both Phenac and the first Chaser Trainer in Pyrite Town, you will find out the nature of the Pokemon, and within sixth battle after capture it will be ready to open the door to its heart.
Codie Pitt.

Hint: Increase attack accuracy:
When executing an attack that has a low accuracy rating or an accuracy that you do not trust (for example, 70%), when your Pokemon is just about to take its turn hold A. The attack will almost always hit. However this will not work with the "1-hit KO" moves such as Fissure, etc.
Robert Hewitt.

Hint: Stronger Shadow Rush:
When your Shadow Pokemon enters Hyper mode, the move "Shadow Rush" becomes more effective.

Hint: Awakening Pokemon:
To get Pokemon up from sleep, simply call them during their turn.

Hint: Avoid losing Pokemon:
The following is a way to transfer your best Pokemon from Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire to Colosseum to use in battle mode without losing them, so you can still use them in Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire. Transfer them over, register them as your battle mode Pokemon, then transfer them back to your Game Boy Advance game. You will still have them in battle mode on Pokemon Colosseum, and you will have them back on Ruby or Sapphire.

Hint: Catching Pokemon:
Get a good Pokeball. An Ultraball is best for Legendary Pokemon such as Entei. Weaken the Pokemon to at least yellow health, but red health is better. Be careful not to go too low because that Pokemon might use Shadow Rush, which makes it hurt itself.
Omar Field-Rahman.

If you accidentally kill the Pokemon that you want to catch, wait and let the opponent defeat you. You should white out with all your experience and return to a computer or a Poke Center machine.
Alene Spruill.

Hold B + Analog-stick Up the moment when the Pokeball gets the Pokemon. It will catch the Pokemon like a Master Ball. Note: This may require some practice.

When attempting to snag a Pokemon, make sure at least 1 HP is taken away from it. Use your Pokeball and when the screen with the claw grabbing the Pokemon appears, press B + Up, then B + Down, and B + Up again. Hold B afterwards when the Pokemon attempts to escape. You must press B + Up, B + Down, and B + Up again when it is still on the screen where the Pokemon was snagged by the claw.
John Deer.

Hint: Snagging Shadow Pokemon:
You can catch Pokemon a lot easier by following these simple steps. First, knock out every Pokemon except the Shadow Pokemon. Then, take out your Umbreon. Use its faint attack until your opponent's health gets in the orange or red. Note: If it is already in the orange, do not attack it any more. Next, throw a Ultra Ball. Once he starts to throw it, keep pressing A until it is either caught or escapes. if it escapes, keep trying until you catch it.

Use the following trick for a second chance at catching a Shadow Pokemon. Save the game every time you catch a Shadow Pokemon or win a battle. If you ever fail at catching a Shadow Pokemon, just restart the game for another chance.

Hold B when you throw the Pokeball for a slightly better chance of catching the Pokemon.

When you throw a ball at a Pokemon, hold Down and rapidly press A. If done correctly and fast enough, this can catch any Pokemon in the "red" section of their health. The advantages to this is that timing is not needed at all -- just a fast thumb.
Matt Burt.

To snag difficult Shadow Pokemon such as Suicune and Raikou, get them to a red or yellow HP and use Hypnosis with Stantler, and even a Pokeball such as a a Master Ball. Note: For this to work Stantler must be purified or be at the extent that he can use Hypnosis.
Cody Escuyos.

Hint: Catching more of the same Shadow Pokemon:
To get more than one Shadow Pokemon, when in battle against someone with the desired Shadow Pokemon, capture it from the owner, then lose to the trainer. Once you battle the trainer again, you will have another chance to get a second one. Note: This works best when trying to get more than one Tyranitar. This does not work all the time.
Donna Hardin.

Hint: Shadow Pokemon stats:
Elki Lioblood.

Minus 1 bar: One move besides Shadow Rush remembered.
Minus 2 bars: Original Nature remembered.
Minus 3 bars: Shadow Rush and two original moves known.
Minus 4 bars: All moves but one replaced by Shadow Rush remembered.

Any Pokemon put with Day Care Lady will not get any new experience points. Walking will lower the bars little by little.
Elki Lioblood.

Shadow Pokemon may open their hearts when the following occurs:
Elki Lioblood.

Put into a new Battle
When leaving battle
Massaged with a scent
Walk around with them in your party
Left with the Day Care Lady
Snapped out of Hyper Mode
When given or affected by an item (not herbal)

Note: Shadow Pokemon open up more when you put them at the back of the party, not in battle. Also, with Espeon and any Pokemon that knows Return, use a Scent on them to power up Return. Pokemon may be more powerful when they like you; use a Scent on them from time to time.
Elki Lioblood.

Hint: Shadow Pokemon items:
The following Shadow Pokemon have an item attached when they are caught:

Bayleef: Miracle Seed
Quilava: Charcoal
Croconaw: Mystic Water
Misdreavus: Spell Tag
Qwilfish: Poison Barb
Meditite: Twisted Spoon
Hitmontop: Black Belt
Piloswine: Soft Sand
Ariados: SilverPowder
Vibrava: Dragion Fang
Delibird: NeverMeltIce
Skarmory: Sharp Beak
Metagross: Metal Coat
Tyranitar: Nugget

Hint: Catching Jhoto Pokemon:
Note: This trick requires a Game Boy Advance link cable, Game Boy Advance, and any Game Boy Pokemon game. Almost all Jhoto pokemon can be snagged in the game. To get these Pokemon, catch 51 weak Pokemon and trade with any Game Boy Advance Pokemon game. Trade all snagged Pokemon ,48 snagged, and Umbreon, Espeon (obtained at start), and Plusle (given by Duking). Then, restart Pokemon Coliseum and use your new Jhoto Pokemon to win the game.

Hint: Battle again:
If you missed your chance to catch the three legendary dogs, do not worry. Once you unlock the tower in story mode, go to it. Once there you will face Miror B. His pokemon are Loudred at level 46, Golduck at level 45, Ludicolo at level 45, Ludicolo at level 44, Armaldo at level 43, and Sudowoodo if you did not catch him before. Then you face Damkim. His Pokemon are Claydol at level 46, Wishcash at level 46, Forretress at level 45, Flygon at level 46, Houndoom at level 47, and Entei if you did not catch him before. Then you will face Venus. Her Pokemon are Misdreavus at level 47, Wigglytuff at level 48, Raichu at level 48, Bellossom at level 47, Milotic at level 48, and Suicune if you did not catch him already. Then you will face Ein. His pokemon are Crobat at level 48, Pelipper at level 49, Rhydon at level 50, Starmie at level 49, Manectric at level 50, and Raikou if you did not already catch him. Then you will continue must battle Gonzap and catch his Skarmory. Next, you will battle the trainer you bumped into in Phechic City, Nascour. You must capture his Metagross. Then, you will face the leader of them all, Evice. He has very strong Pokemon. The one you must catch is Tyranitar. You should be able to catch him with a Master Ball.

Hint: Defeating Eian:
To defeat his electric Pokemon, try using pokemon that are Ground and Rock types (for example, Vibrava). You can get Vibrava when you are fighting someone before you get to Eian. Note: Make sure that when he takes out Golbat that you kill it immediately. It uses Confuse Ray frequently. You can also poison or lull him to sleep.

Hint: Defeating Evice:
Have at least a level 60 Metagross and a level 70 Umbreon. Do not both catching his Shadow Pokemon, just kill it. Note: They will try to use Earthquake, so just Confuse them.

When fighting Evice, make sure you captured Metagross. Have Gligar, Ampharos (or Rikku) Entei, Flygon, Metagros and Hitmontop at level 60 to 80. Use Metagross and Entei to destroy Tyrannitar, Scizzor, and Machoke. Make sure you have Hyper Potion and some Revives. Flygon and Gligar can take out Slowking and Salamance. Gligar must have Sunny Day and Flygon must have Solar Beam. Finally, Hitmontop and whomever else can finish Slaking with Triple Kick. Ampharos can help you destroy Slowking and Slaking.

Have the following Pokemon in your party: Umbreon, Espeon, Entei, Absol, Miltank and Suicune. Have Entei and Absol come out first. They can destroy most of the preliminary Pokemon. Use Umbreon to faint Slowking. Miltank's Rollout move can faint Salamence and Slowking. Make sure that you have plenty of items like Revives and Hyper Potions.

Hint: Defeating Pre-gym leader Justy:
Keep Umbreon's Snatch attack. Use it as many times as possible. Justy's Pokemon are constantly using Double Team. Snatch takes it. You should continually attack with the other and you will have the battle won. If you run out of Snatch or your Pokemon die, then just keep attacking his Pokemon with Umbreon. Make sure you also have some potions and similar items, as Justy also tends to use Sandstorm a lot.

Hint: Defeating the Phenec City mayor:
The final boss is the mayor of Phenec City. He has a killer Pokemon party which can beat yours to a pulp if you are not careful. Have at least one Fire, Water, Grass and an Ice and your three other strongest Pokemon to get to the final battle on Realgam Tower. The mayor has a tough group of pokemon but you should be most worried about Slakoth, Slamence, and Tyranitar. Do not catch Tyranitar unless you know that you are going to win or you will have to deal with a stronger one.

If he gets out Slaking and Slowking, take out the Slowking first. If you do not do this, it will use Skill Swap and Slaking will be able to attack every turn.

Hint: Fighting Mirakle B.:
When you fight Mirakle B., he will be at the same hideout as Miror B. However, he will only be there after a long time. He does not have any Shadow Pokemon.

Hint: Easier RPG mode:
To make the RPG mode a lot easier, stay a few hours in Pyrite Town's Duel Square, even though it is drawn as a circle. You can battle all six of the trainers there repeatedly. This makes purifying Shadow Pokemon a lot easier, and getting 99 of any desired items in the Pokemon Marts all over Orre, because they still keep giving you money. Unfortunately, you only receive a little less then the first cash prize that you received. For example, with the loner trainer on the right, Rider Vant, he will give you 300 for your first win, but every single time you defeat him after that it is 290. Although this takes time, their Pokemon are generally easy to defeat because they are at a low level and most of them are normal types. Note: Each of the Shadow Pokemon they used to have are now replaced with a different Pokemon (starting with lone trainer on right and going counter-clockwise. Also, the money amounts are the cash prizes that you win every time you win a battle with that trainer after the first battle.

1. Shuppet (level 30) replaces Misdreavus (level 30) for Rider Vant (290). Also has Zigzagoon (level 28) and Skitty (level 28).
2. Dudou (level 30) replaces Noctowl (level 30) for Rider Nover (270). Also has Ledyba (level 27) and Wingull (level 27).
3. Pichu (level 30) replaces Flaffy (level 30) for St. Performer Diogo (432). Also has Shroomish (level 28).
4. Sunkern (level 30) replaces Skiploom (level 30) for Rider Leba (280). Also has Oddish (level 28) and Dustox (level 28).
5. Horsea (level 30) replaces Quagsire (level 30) for Bandana Guy Divel (480). Also has Psyduck (level 29).
6. Numel (level 30) replaces Slugma (level 30) for Roller Boy Lon (168). Also has Azurill (level 27), Swablu (level 27), and Igglypuff (level 28).

When the meter is only four "hate" bars long, your Pokemon will remember one of its original moves. When the meter is only three "hate" bars long, your Pokemon will start earning experience points, but will not be of any benefit until it is fully purified from hate. When the "hate" bar is only two bars long, it will remember a second move that you can use in battle alongside with Shadow Rush and the first one it remembered. When the meter is only one "hate" bar long, your move list will contain four moves, including Shadow Rush. Once that last "hate" bar disappears, you can finally visit the Relic Stone in the Relic Forest in Agate Village, where any nearly purified Pokemon will be fully purified and lose Shadow Rush, gain all its experience (leveling up each time), and remember its fourth initial move. You can still learn new moves by experience, TMs, and HMs.

Hint: Multi-tasking PC:
The PC does a lot more now than to store your Pokemon. It also heals them to full health, removes status ailments (except Hyper Mode), and even revives fallen Pokemon.
Demetrio Amog.

Go to a PC if there is not a cure machine or Pokemon Center. Go to Pokemon storage and then select the Pokemon you want to recover. Store it, then withdraw it again. The Pokemon will be cured. You can do this when you do not want to go to a Pokemon Center because it is too far away, or if no cure machine is available.

Hint: Restore health:
Use the following trick at a save point to restore your Pokemon to full health. Put the fainted Pokemon in, then take it out again.
Karrin lqmhurum.

To get power-ups in your Pokemons' health, go the the PC. Put your weak Pokemon in and wait for at least 5 seconds before taking it out.

Hint: Fake hero:
After defeating Deep King Agnol and have all the Shadow Pokemon, you will get an email from Athlete Dash. He says that you attacked him. Go to Phenac City and you will get another email stating that the last Pokemon is Togetic. Go to another city and you get an email telling you to watch television. Watch it and you will see yourself on screen. You will get another email instructing you to watch it again. After that, go to Outskirt Stand. You will battle a person that looks just like you. Battle him to get Togtic. He has a lot of level 60 and 70 Pokemon in his party. Note: Togetic is level 20.

Hint: See an old man dance:
When you get to go to the Under, talk to the old man in the shop. He is to the right of the counter. Answer "No" to his question and he will start to dance.

Hint: Struggle move:
If a Pokemon runs out of moves (all Pokemon), the only other move remaining for it is Struggle.
Dave Bennett.

Hint: Easy money:
Successfully complete the game then trade your Pokemon back and forth from Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire. Give the trading Pokemon Nuggets then sell them in Pokemon Colosseum. This can also be done with other items.

Hint: Easy experience:
To train your Pokemon to a very high level, go to Mt. Battle. This not is a good location to train your Pokemon, but it also helps purify Shadow Pokemon faster. Note: You will battle between 90 and 100 Pokemon which can be very difficult to defeat.

Hint: Recommended Pokemon:
When you defeat the trainers of Realgam Tower and have access to the Trade Center in Phenac, trade over Rayquaza, Groudon and Kyogre from Pokemon Emerald. They are the strongest at level 70. Also obtain Latios and Latias from any Pokemon game and level up the Shadow Tyranitar from Evice.

Use the following Pokemon and get them to a high level.

Glitch: Talk through wall:
In Pyrite Town, go into the jail to find the people that tried to kidnap your friend earlier in one of the cells. Go into the cell directly adjacent to their cell. To do this, pick up the jail key on the desk when you first enter the building. You can talk to them from your cell, directly through the wall.

Glitch: Purify Shadow Pokemon faster:
This trick requires any Shadow Pokemon and a Pokemon that knows Helping Hand (for example, Espeon). Get into a battle and have your Shadow Pokemon use Shadow Rush. Next have the Pokemon that knows Helping Hand use it. This will cause your Shadow Pokemon to go into Hyper mode. Finally, call the Shadow Pokemon.

Glitch: Ultimate mode move:
When you are in a quick fight under ultimate mode, if you fight the trainer with the Swellow and Ninjask, the first move the opponent's Ninjask uses is Toxic and on your opponents Swellow.

Glitch: Charizard flies through ground:
Note: This trick requires Pokemon Fire Red or Leaf Green and a link cable. Make sure you have a Charizard that knows Fly. Transfer your Game Boy Advance Pokemon to Mount Battle and use Charizard first. If it does not die, use Fly. When it attacks, it will appear to go through the ground.
LuLu Derbyshire-Taddei.

Glitch: Jumpluff's shadow:
When fighting a Jumpluff, look at its shadow. The shadow will be three little squares instead of circles like on the Jumpluff. Note: This was done in story mode.

Glitch: Wrong picture:
Snagged Pokemon Yanma's picture is of a Remoraid when you look at the summary of it in the Pokemon Storage or Snag list in the PDA.

Glitch: Unlimited Pokeballs:
When in a battle with a Shadow Pokemon, have the first Pokemon that is selected use any type of Pokeball. With the second Pokemon, go back to the items screen and switch the Pokeball used with another in the pocket using Y. After exiting the menu, proceed normally. When you use the ball, the number in the bag will not go down. This works with all balls, including the Master Ball.
Steve M.

Giltch: Unlimited Masterballs:
On your turn, use your Masterball on any Shadow Pokemon. Then with your Pokemon, switch the position of your Masterball with the position of any other ball. You should then throw the Masterball and catch the Shadow Pokemon without using the only Masterball in the game.

As soon as you get the Master Ball, you can do this trick. On your turn, have the first Pokemon throw the Master Ball. Then, have your second Pokemon switch the Master Ball with any other ball (using X or Y). Do anything with the second Pokemon. You will catch the Pokemon without fail, and still have the Master Ball on your next turn.

Glitch: Float above steps:
When your player goes up the steps in Mt. Battle, he does not touch them.
Troy Herbort.

Glitch: Drilling Wingull:
When in a battle against a Wingull, defeat it. When the Winggull makes its fainting call, it will dive head first towards the ground before it is called back into its Pokeball. The bird will look as if it was going to drill a hole into the ground.

Glitch: See Electrike go through trainer's legs:
If you facing a trainer with an Electrike and it is their last Pokemon, hit Electrike with any move. Do not kill it. You will see Electrike jump through the trainer's legs and run back through them.

Glitch: Turn Raikou's tail black:
Go to the Deep Colosseum, then battle. If you caught Raikou, call him out first. His tail should be black instead of blue. This will not work if he is called out second (the left of the screen facing your character).

Glitch: See Zigzagoon go through trainer's legs:
At the beginning of the game when you fight the trainer with two Zigzagoons, kill the first one then only hurt the second one to see it run through its trainer's legs.

Glitch: Girl moves behind you:
While walking, stop and press Start with the girl not facing directly behind you. Then, press B. She will moved to be directly behind you.

Glitch: Girl chases you:
Go to Agate City. Go up the skinny hill. Go to the right and down in front of the house. Then, turn around and go to the location at the top of the hill where you must go around. Go around very carefully, not wide. The girl will get stuck as you go down the hill. Hide someplace where she is no longer on the screen and she will chase you down.

Glitch: Checkerboard TV:
Go to the place called "The Under". Then, go to where it costs you 1,000 Pokemon Dollars to sleep at. Proceed upstairs and you will see three people; an old man, a muscleman, and a man. Behind the old man you will see a television that is green. You will also see a PC. Press A on the PC, then look at the television just before the PC screen appears. You will notice it has white and black squares like a checkerboard.

Glitch: Triple experience points:
Burn or Poison your opponent while Perish Song is active.
