NOTE: This walkthrough is based  on the Sapphire version of the game. There are
some differences between Ruby and Sapphire. This walkthrough will try to cover
situtaions that is true for both version. Unfortunately, there are some areas
in which this could not be done. In order to help your search, you might want to
use the Find (Ctrl+F) feature.

I. Game Basics

Skip this section unless this is the first time that you've played any Pokemon
games. Veterans from R/B/Y and G/S/C days will find the basic control of Ru/Sa
is more or less the same.

Here are the controls in Pokemon Ru/Sa

Directional Pads
This is used to move around the map, or used to move to another option of the

A button
Choose this to confirm an option.

B button
This is used if you want cancel an option.

Start Button
This is used to bring in main menu on the main map.

Select Button
You can register an item and use tem easily by using the select button. You can
also re-arrange the order of moves by using this button. An often overlooked
button in the days of R/B/Y.

L and R
This button is used for Nothing. However, you can change it's function to work
like the A and B button from the setting option.

Start menu
Pokedex - This is simply your Pokedex
Pokemon - Choosing this option will list the Pokemon in your party
Bag - This will take you to your backpack where you can use your items
Poke-Navi - Choosing this option will take you to the Poke-Navi
"Trainer Name" - This will take you to your trainer card. (trainer status)
Save - Self-Explanatory
Option - Use this to cahnge the battle mode, frame styles, etc
Cancel - Self-Explanatory

Stopping evolution
Press the "B" button while your Pokemon is evolving.

Teaching Pokemon a HM/TM
Go to your pack select a TM/HM and use them to one of your Pokemon. (Not all
Pokemon may be able to learn a particular moves).

Using a HM in the field
Press A against the obstacle that you want to go through. This works for every
HM except for Flash. You could also do it manually by going to the Pokemon
status screen and the option to use HM will appear if you check each individual

Someone PC's (later Lanette's PC)
There's an option for you here to change your PC wallpaper as well as rename
the boxes. Another useless addition to the Pokemon PC. However, something that
will interest you would be the fact that Pokemon will be sent to the next empty
boxes. In other words, you don't have to change your PC boxes when its full. No
more tearing your hairs out when you discover your PC Box is full when you are
throwing a ball at legendary Pokemon.

A. Littleroot Town - A whole new adventure begins.
Significant Places: Your house, your Rival's house, Professor Birch house

This is the begginning of your adventures. You started out in a truck. It
appears that your family is moving in. There will be Machoke carrying stuffs
around, and your mom will tell you to go to your room. Go and take a potion out
of your PC,look at the clock and set up the time. Now your mother will allow
you to come down.

Now, if you look at the TV, you'll know that your father is a gym leader. Now
go out. Head to the lab and you'll discover that Professor Birch had went out.
You can't go out of the town either, as you'll be stopped by a small boy syaing
that it's too dangerous out there. So, there are only one place to go - the
neighbour's house. Go up to the second floor and you'll see your rival. After
talking to her, head back t othe entrance of the town. This tiem you could go

After walking for a while, you will see Professor Birch attacked by a wild
Poocyhena. He will ask you to choose a ball from his bag to help him. you will
have three Pokeball to choose from (No prize for guessing that these are the
starter. These three starters are: Treecko (Grass), Torchic (Fire), Mudkip
(Water). Choose which starter you want, and you will fight the Poochyena

Poochyena lvl 2
You shouldn't have any problem beating this Pokemon. Your starter level should
be strin genough to beat Poochyena.

From the three Starter, Grass and Water will have a type advantage for the
first gym. However, Torchic will evolve to Combusken at level 16 which can
learn Double Kick. Personally, Torchic would be the best choice considering
that there is only a few Fire types in the game. At the same time, Fire type is
one of the most useful, especially against the Elite Four.

After you have beaten the Poochyena, Professor Birch will bring you back to his
lab in Littleroot Town. Here he will thank you and let you keep the Pokemon for
saving him. He will tell you that his daughter/son is currently on route 103.
He will ask you to go there. Now it's time to continue and head for the next
town. Exit the town and head to route 101.

B. Oldale Town - The Pokemon Center and your Rival

Walk along route 101. There's nothing here, except some wild Pokemon, namely
Zigzagoon and Wurmple. You can't catch them yet, so level up one or two levels.
Soon enough, you'll be on your way to Oldale Town.

Not much to see here. This town just like Viridian in R/B/Y and Cherrygrove in
G/S/C. As usual, there is a Pokemon Center to heal your Pokemon and also a
Pokemart. Buy some potions and left for the next route. As usual, Nurse Joy is
still in every Pokemon Center. Now the Pokemon Center has it's own escalator.
On the second level of the Pokemon Center, you'll be able to find three booths
- One for Battling, One for Trading, and one for Mixing Records.

Head North, and after walking for a while, you will find your rival. Be
prepared for your first battle. You should have levelled up your Pokemon during
the journey so far. The Pokemon he choose will be a starter Pokemon that has a
type advantages over your Pokemon. Your rival's Pokemon will be at level 5. It
shouldn't be hard to beat him/her if you level up enough. If your rival is a
boy, his name would be Brendan, if she's a girl, her name would be May.

Rival Battle Brendan/May

Treecko lvl 5 or Mudkip lvl 5 or Torchic lvl 5 (Depnding on your starter)

For Example: If you choose Treecko the grass starter your rival will have
Torchic the fire starter. This battle should be simple if you level up enough.
Presumably, your starter should be at leve 7-8. With this, you will not face
any difficulties beating her/him

After beating your rival, go back to Oldale Town and you are now allowed to buy
the items in the shop. At the entrance of the town, you will see your rival.
Talk to him/her, and he/she will tell you to follow him/her back to Littleroot

Now, go back to Littleroot Town and talk to Proffesor Birch. He will give you 5
Pokeball and a Pokedex. Exit the town, and before that while passing your
house, your mother will give you a running shoes.

With this running shoes, now you can run by holding the "b" button of your
gameboy. Running Shoes will allow you to travel much faster. It could be used
anywhere except in building.

Now, head back to Oldale Town again. You might want to capture some Pokemon
along the way.  Once in Oldale Town, exit the town using the west exit to route
102. You will find yourself in a  route with a few trainers. In this route,
you'll be able to catch Pokemon such as Ralts (they are quite rare though).
Continue walking along the route and soon you'll arrive at Petalburg city.

C. Petalburg City - Meet your Father here

Significant Places: Petalburg Gym, Wally house

Go to Pokemon Center to heal your Pokemon and stock up on the potions. Now go
to the gym. A trainer called Wally will come and begged your father to be given
a Pokemon. Norman will lend him a Zigzagoon which will be used to catch Ralts.
Afterwhich, he will take you back to the gym leader. It is your father. He will
told you that did not have enough experience, and you need 4 badges before you
can challenge him. Take note of this and come back to this gym after you've got
4 badges. Now head to the west exit of the town and make your way to the route
104. Figh some of the trainers here, you might want to catch a Pelliper if you
want. At the end of the route, you'll end up in Petalburg Forest.

Petalburg Woods
Petalburg Woods will remind you of Viridian Forest. There are heaps of Bugs
Pokemon bugging you here. Soon enough, you'll bump into a researcher which was
attacked by Team Magma/Aqua. This will be your first ever meeting with Team
Magma/Aqua, but it certainly won't be the last.

Team Magma/Aqua
Pokemon: Poocyhena

After defeating him, make your way out of teh forest. There are parts of the
forest which you will need cut in order to access it. Come back later to acess
this area and grab some items.

D. Rustboro City - Home to Devon Corp
Significant Places: Devon Corp, Rostboro Gym, Cutter house

Rustboro City is among one of the biggest city in the game. On the North-East,
is the building where you will get your Poke-Navi later on the game-the Devon
Corp. Heal your Pokemon and head to the gym. The Gym is awfully similar to
Pewter City Gym in term of layout and even the type used.

Rustboro Gym
Gym Leader: Roxeanne
Type: Rock
Badge: Stone Badge

Geodude  lvl 14
Nosepass lvl 15

This could be hard, especially if you choose Torchic as your starting Pokemon.
However, if you level up enough during your journey here, you should be able to
beat the gym leader and get your first badge and TM 37. If your starter is
Torchic, I would recommend to level it up and evlove it immediately into a
Combusken in order for it to learn Double Kick which will be helpful against
Rock type.

After you step out of the gym, you will see one of team Magma/Aqua member. He
will  head North, followed by a man in the green suit that you encountered
earlier in the forest. Make your way to a tunnel, North-East of the city. Here
the man earlier whom you saved in Petalburg Woods  will tell you that team
Magma/Aqua has run off with the Devon package. In front of the cave's
entrance, you will see an old man called Mr Briney that tells you that his
Wingull was taken hostage by Team  Magma/Aqua. So, go inside and fight the
member of Team Magma/Aqua. Once you've beaten Team Aqua/Magma talk again to the
guy in Rustboro city who inform you about Team Aqua/Magma.

He will take you to a building, the Devon corporation and give you a
Poke-Navi-A new version of pokegear in  which you can see the map for your
reward of beating team Aqua/Magma. The president of the  company will also give
to you two things to deliver. One for the champ of Pokemon Leauge, and the
other, the Devon package itself for Captain Slate in Slateport City

/Poke Navigator\
Here the features of te Poke Navigator

1. Hoenn Map-Choosing this option will display the map of Hoenn and your
2. Condition - This will show your Pokemon constest stats as well as other
Pokemon that have been in a contest before.
3. Trainer-eye-this shows you all trainer that you have fought. There are 70
trainers in total, and you get an additional star if you managed to find all of
them. You can battle that trainer again if a pokeball symbol is flashing beside
their name.
4. Exit
5. Ribbon- this option will show all the Pokemon that have gotten their ribbon.
This option only available if your Pokemon has gotten at least one ribbon.

Before continuing any further make sure you get HM 01 from the house beside
Rustboro Pokemon
Center. HM 01 is CUT, you can use it to cut bushes as well as grasses.

After rescuing Wingull, it's time to take the rough sea. Go back to Touka
Forest and went back to the entrance. (the entrance that is near the beach).
Near the forest, there is a house belonging to the old man which Wingull you
rescued from Team aqua/Magma earlier. Talk to the Man, and he'll take you to
Dewford Town.

E. Dewford Town - What's hip?
Places of interest: Dewford Hall, Granite Cave, Dewford Gym

Not much to do there, except that you might want to fight some trainers in the
North. There is a cave up north. Leave this for a while. Talk to the fisherman
by the Pokemon Center to get an old rod. There's a building called Dewford
Hall, grabbed the TM 36- Sludge Bomb and run. (everyone here's is obsessed with
something :P). Anyway, you could also get a silk scarf from the man living on
the house by the jetty. Silk Scarf will raise th power of normal Pokemon moves
when you let a Pokemon hold it.

What's Hip and Happening?
On Dewford Hall, you can set the trendy phrase. To do this, talk to the man
outside the building. Say no and you'll be prompt to enter a new phrase. Of
course, at some instance, some phrases could led to a hilarious situation :P

Dewford Town Gym
This is a fighting Gym. At first it might be hard to see anything as everything
is dark. However, the light is slowly lit once you beat the Junior Trainers.

Gym Leader:Brawly
Type: Fighting
Badge: Knuckle Badge

Machop lvl 17
Makuhita lvl 18

It should not be hard to beat this Gym Leader. A Fying Pokemon will be a great
help here. So get a Kadabra (If you managed to capture an Abra from the cave).
After the battle, the gym leader will give you TM 08-Bulk Up.

Head to the cave North-west of the Island, the Granite Cave, and make your way
through until you meet Steven. Once you delivered the memo, the champ will left
after giving you TM 47
Go out and now you're ready for the next part of the journey. Make sure you get
the  HM 05 FLASH from a hiker inside the cave. HM 05 FLASH would be able to be
used to light up caves.

Once you have delivered the memo, talked to the Mr Briney who brought you here
with a boat. A second option to go to Slateport city will be available. Hop on
the boat, and you'll end up in a beach. Fight the trainers for some experience
and make your way north to the next city. In fact, by defeating all the trainer
in the beach you'll get something from Mr.Sea.

F. Slateport City - The gateaway to the sea
You will find Team Magma/Aqua crowding around a building. That's the ocean
museum. If you tried to get out of the city and head North, you'll find your
way blocked by  several minions of team Magma/Aqua. There is also a contest
house here. (the red building). In this house, you could participate in the
contest. However, you would need to obtain the contest pass first from
Verdanturf Town. Talk to the little girl to obtain Pokeblock Case. By obtaining
this, you would be able to blend berry using the berry blender. With this, you
will also be able to enter the Safari Zone. (later in the game). This is a key
item that you definitely must get.

So, in Slateport city, head for a building that resemble a warehouse and talk
to the  man with the balding head called Dock. He will tell you that Capt Slate
is nowhere to be seen. Now head back to the Ocean Museum. You'll discover that
team Magma/Aqua has entered the museum.

The Ocean Museum is full of Team Magma/Aqua member. Talk to one of the member
at the ground floor. He will remember you as the little twerp whom he fought
earlier. He'll give you TM 46 (Thief). By using this TM you'll be able to steal
item off wild Pokemon.

Head for the stairs and talk to the scientist. Suddenly, two Team Magma/Aqua
member will come and you will fight them. After beating them, the leader of
Team Magma/Aqua will come, and they will  teleport away. By doing this, you'll
rescue Dr Slate who'll be thanking you for the Devon package.

Heal your Pokemon and head North. You will find that now team Magma/Aqua  is
not blocking your way anymore. So just went straight and turn right. Here you
will battle your rival once again. His/Her starter Pokemon will have evolved by
now. So make sure that you levelled up for this fight.

Rival Battle #2:

If you choose Treecko as a your starter
Shroomish lvl 18
Wailmer lvl 18
Combusken lvl 20

If you choose Torchic as a your starter
Shroomish lvl 18
Numel lvl 18
Marshtomp lvl 20

If you choose Mudkip as a your starter
Wailmer lvl 18
Numel lvl 18
Grovyle lvl 20

After you managed to beat your rival, you can continue on your journey. Before that
though, your rival will give you an itemfinder. You should be familiar with this item
if you've played Pokemon before. For the sake of the unitiated though, the Itemfinder
helps you to find hidden item on the ground. If your item finder indicate that there
are items nearby, your character will immediately faces that direction after you use
your itemfinder. If you happen to stand just under the item, you'll spin around in the

Now, just continue along route 110 and you will find yourself in Mauville City.
At the junction between route 103 and 110, there's a trick house. Look for more
details about it in the trick house section of this FAQ.

G. Mauville City - The Electrifying city
There is a bike shop here. Talk to the owner, and he will give you an acro bike
in which you can hop around. There are two choices, the Mach bike and the Acro
bike. The Mach bike could be used to get past ledges and mud-ramp, whereas the
Acro bike could be used to hop around and could be used to get past the white
ramp. To view the manual for both bike, check the notes on the table.

Now you will be able to enter the bicycle-only route. Not much there, except
some trainers which you can battle. It's also serves as a shortcut from
Mauville to Slateport and vice versa.

In front of the gym, you will meet Wally, the guy who  you encountered at
Petalburg City gym earlier. Wally will be your second rival. He insisted to challenge
the gym leader despite the objection of his uncle. To prove himself, he will
challenge you for a battle. His Pokemon will be a level 16 Ralts. It shouldn't be hard
if you can make it so far into the game.

Trainer: Wally
Pokemon: Ralts lvl 16

After the battle, Wally will exit the town and head West to Verdanturf Town. In
Verdanturf, you'll be bale to find the first contest house. On the route between
Mauville and Verdaturf, you'll also be able to find the Day Care Center.

Now head to the gym. This gym is an electric gym, so if you have ground/Rock
Pokemon it will be a great help here. You'll need to zig-zagged you way through
before you reach the gym leader.

Gym leader: Wattson
Type: Electric
Badge: Dynamo Badge

Magnemite lvl 22
Voltorb lvl 20
Magneton lvl 23

This should be easy, especially if you have a fire Pokemon in your team. Use a
fire Pokemon to finish off Magnemite and Magneton. After winning the battle,
you will get the badge as well as TM 34. If you start out iwth Mudkip and has
evolved it, this battle will be a breeze.

After you have beaten the gym leader, talk to the scientist living on the house
right  of the shop in the town and he will give you HM 06 Rock Smash. With Rock
Smash,  you can destroy rocks and you can continue to north to route 111.

H. Fiery Path
After walking for sometime  you will arrive at a junction. One to the left and
one ahead. As for now, you cannot  choose to go ahead as the sandstorm will be
blocking you. Now, Go and enter the cave.  There are paths blocked by a boulder
which you can't move yet since you didn't  have strength yet. Find your way to
the exit and just follow the path until you  encounter a town. Before that, you
might want to get TM 43 from the trainer in front of the big tree. Along the
way, you will passed an area covered with Volcaninc Ash (Route 113). At Route
1113, lie the Glass Workshop. Talk to the owner who will give you a soot sack.
Using this soot sack, you could collect ashes while walking in ash-covered
grasses. You could exchange this ashes for Flutes, as well as secret base
decorations. The flute works just like Pokeflute, for example blue flute
awakens a sleeping Pokemon, and Red Flut cancels out the effect of attract.

Yellow Flute     250 ashes
Red Flute        500 ashes
Blue Flute       500 ashes
White Flute     1000 ashes
Black Flute     1000 ashes
Pretty Chair    6000 ashes
Pretty Desk     8000 ashes

I. Fallarbor Town
Not much to do here. Get the TM 28 Dig from the small boy in one of the house.
There is however, the move tutor. (For explanation on the move tutor, refer to
the sub-section on miscallenaous section).

Fallarbor contains the second contest house. If you have gotten the contest pass
easlier from Verdanturf, and win any of the beginner contest, you can have your
Pokemon to participate in these contest.

In one of the house, you will learn from the girl there that a scientist called
Professor Cosmo has gone to the golden cave in the south. After you have
rescued the scientist, go back and talk to him to get a TM. Ouside the town, is
Lannette's house. She is Ru/Sa version of Bill in this game. After you meet her,
your Pokemon box PC will be renamed LANETTE's PC.

Heal your Pokemon, stock up on the potions and left the town. After passing the
bridge,  you should find yourself among a rocky terrains. There are plenty of
secret base around this area. Walk a little and you should find an entrance to
a cave - The Meteor Falls.

J. Meteor Falls - Revelation of evil plot

Enter the cave, and you will see team Aqua talking to a scientist. Soon, Team
Magma  will confront team Aqua and both of them will left. Talk to the
scientist, and you will learn that team Magma/Aqua has run off with a
meteorite.  Take note of this place. Lateron when you have gotten the waterfall,
you'll be able to go deeper to the cave and eventually reach a place where you can
catch the elusive Bagon. Now, its time to proceed with the journey, you might want
to capture Solrock or Lunatone (Depending on your version), to add a psychic Pokemon
to your arsenal.

Now, continue  walking. The cave is a short one, and you should be
able to go  out of it effortlessly. Now you will find yourself back on the path
to Rustboro City.

From Rustboro city, make your way back to Mauville City by going to Shidake
Town. To go there, head East from Rustboro City and use rock smash on the
boulder. You will get HM 04 Strength for smashing the boulder, however you
can't use them yet until you beat the 4th gym. From Verdanturf town, just
continue Eastward until you reach Mauville. From Mauville city, head North
until you arrive at the cave again. This time go to the house to take the cable
car up to Mt Chimney.

K. Mt Chimney - Stop Team Aqua/Magma!
Once you stepped out of the cable car, it will be on a volcano that was
snowing. You will see members of Team Magma and Aqua seems to be having a
fight. You cannot  go to the town yet, as team Aqua/Magma is blocking the way.
Head up, and fight the Team Aqua/Magma members on the way. At the top, you will
find Archie/Maxie (leader of Aqua/Magma team) near the stolen meteorite. Defeat
him, and he will left the volcano. The leader of the other team will come and
thank you for beating his opponent.

Team Aqua battle
Mightyena lvl 24
Golbat  lvl 24
Sharpedo lvl 24

Shouldn't be too much of a problem, provided that you've level up enough for this fight.
Now with team Magma and Aqua gone you should be able to continue further down to the town
through the Jagged Path

Jagged Path
You'll arrive at Jaged Path soon. There is really nothing crucial to the game here,
there is a wild Spoink that you could catch though. Make your way down, until you
reach a city - Lavaridge City.

L. Lavaridge Town - The Fiery Town
It will be helpful if you have a water Pokemon here, as your next fight will be
a Fire Gym.
Enter the gym, and you will notice something like a spring in each section.
This is just like Sabrina's Gym in R/B/Y and G/S/C. Walking to the hot spring
in the gym will teleport you to the other section. Work your way to the gym
leader, and defeat it. Now you should be able to use strength outside battle.
If the area here seems foggy and you are using the emulator, check the FAQ
section. You shouldn't encounter any problems with the graphics if you are playing
using legitimate cartridge.

Gym Leader :Flannery
Type: Fire
Badge: Heat Badge

Slugma lvl 26
Slugma lvl 26
Torkoal lvl 28

Use Water Pokemon or Rock Pokemon here. After you managed to defeat him, you'll
receive TM 50 which contain Overheat, a move more powerful than Fire Blast in term
of base damage. It is also a good move to use on contest However, it gets weaker each
turn. This battle should be a breeze if you leveled up enough.

Once you stepped out of the gym, your rival will come and give you a Go-Google. Now
you can go through the desert to collect the fossils. You can take the fossils
to Rustboro City to revive them.  Before you go, don't forget to collect Wynaut
egg's which is pre-evolution of Wobbuffet from a lady on the back of Pokemon

As you might have known, with Rock smash you will be able to smash the rock hat
block the cave in which you rescue the old man's Wingull. You'll find a
blackbelt showing his frustation at not being able to meet his lover thanks to
the rock.

This will lead to Verdanturf town. However, to fight the next gym leader you
must head back to Touka City. The first city with a gym). When you break the
rock, the blackbelt will give you HM 04 STRENGTH  in return for destroying the
rock that block the way between Rustboro City and Mauville City.

M. Petalburg City once more - The Power of Slaking
Make your way into the gym. Once you stepped into the gym, you will be able to
see two doors. One on the left and one on the right. this is the basic
structure for each room in the gym. Take the right one, and you will find
yourself in another similar room. You need to beat the Junior Trainer before
the doors will show up. There are two types of doors, "accuracy" and "speed."
You should be able to find the gym leader easily, and the type that this gym is
using is normal type, so Fighting Pokemon will come handy here.

Gym Leader: Norman
Type: Normal
Badge: Balance Badge
Slaking lvl 28
Vigoroth lvl 30
Slaking lvl 31

Slaking is one of the Pokemon with the highest attack in the game. Finish him
as fast as
possible before it can cause serious damage to your Pokemon. It characteristic
make it it will only attack each odd turn. With one of the most powerful attack
in the game, your best shot at betaing him would be using a Pokemon that could
knock him as fast as possible or using a ghost type. You'll receive TM 42 for
beating  the gym leader.

Another strategy would be to used detect for every odd turn that Slaking

Once you've beaten the gym leader, you can use surf outside battle. Now go out
of the gym and enter Wally's house on the left. Talk to the man (Waly's father)
and he will give you HM 03 Surf. Teach your Pokemon surf (if you do not have
any water Pokemon, catch that racoon Pokemon). Now make your way to Mauville
City (The city where you get the bicycle), either passing Oldale City or
Verdanturf Town. Once you are in Mauville City, exit the city using the East
exit. Here with surf you can cross the water and end up on the other side. Walk
further right and go up when you arrive at a junction.

Walk your way up through the routes until you see a building. Here you will
meet Team Magma/Aqua once again. If you need to heal your Pokemon, go to the
bed in the left side of the building. Fight the Team Magma/Aqua members on the
first floor, and take the stairs. Defeat team Magma/Aqua including their
leader. Talk to the scientist, and he'll give you the elusive weather

Now you can go past the bridge which was earlier blocked by two team Magma/Aqua
members. You'll soon meet your rival once more. Defeat him/her, and you'll get
HM 02 Fly. Now you can fly to the previous town that you've visited.

N. Fortree City - Camouflage and Trees
You will end up in a city soon. However, if you tried to go to the gym you will
find something is blocking you. So, go out of the city to the east and continue
on until you reach a bridge. Here you'll met Steven once more. He told you that
it was Kecleon, the chameleon Pokemon that was camouflaging as an invisible
wall. Upon this, you will fight a lvl 30 Kecleon. Defeat/capture it, and go
back to the town. Steven will give you a Devon Scope. By having this, you'll be
able to see the Kecleon.  Now you will be able to enter the gym. The gym
specializes in Flying type, and involve a few puzzle to solve before you'll be
able to reach the gym leader.

Gym Leader : Winona
Type: Flying
Badge: Feather Badge

Swellow Lvl 31
Pelliper Lvl 30
Skarmory Lvl 30
Altaria Lvl33

Use an Electric Pokemon to take out Pelipper and Swellow. Fire Pokemon for
Skarmory,  and an Ice Pokemon will do the job for Altaria. You will get TM 40
for beating her.

Now, make your way out of the town along the path. After walking for a while,
you will see two team Magma/Aqua members rushing down the path. You'll
overheard their conversation that they are heading for Mt Pyre.

anyway, now you can choose to go to Safari Zone, to Lilicove City to heal your
Pokemon, or to give the team Magma/Aqua a chase. If you want to go to Safari
Zone, you'll need Pokeblock Blender from the little girl in Slateport Contest

O. Mt Pyre and the Orbs - Legend Revisited

Now make your way down the road until you reach a lake. Surf to the center, and
find an entrance to a building. The interior of the building will remind you of
pokemon tower in R/B/Y version of pokemon. Just like Pokemon tower, you'll be
able to catch Ghost Pokemon here. You can also get Sea Incense and Lax Incense
which are necessary in order to get Azzuril and Wynaut.

Enter the place. This is Hoenn version of Pokemon Tower. Ghost Pokemon will be
floating around, so if you want one, this is a good place to catch them.
Instead of climbing  the stair, exit the tower using the other doorway. You
will end up in a mountain. Go up to find and old couple and Team Magma/Aqua.
As always, blast them away and talk to the old couple which will give you a
blue/red orb (depending on the version) in return for helping them. If you talk to
the old man, hell tell you a brief story about the Epic Battle that took place between
the two legendary Pokemon ages ago.

By stealing the orb, Team Magma/Aqua had upset the balance of nature in Hoenn.
The two orbs have always been used to keep the nature's balance in Hoenn, now
with team Aqua/Magma stealing it, a catsthrope seems inevitable. If you want to
learn more about this, talk to the old man who will tell you the story about
Kyogre and Groudon. Before you leave, you might want to check the grassy area
here, to find for the rare psychic Pokemon - Chimecho.

Now head back to Slateport City. (City with Ocean Museum). Go to the pier North
East of the town. You will find a crowd there. A discovery has been made. An
underwater cave at route 128 has appeared.

Talk to the Capt Slate and enter the building. You will see the leader of Team
Magma/aqua (You do not fight him this time though), and he will escape using a
submarine. Now it's time to give team Magma/Aqua the chase.

P. Lilicove City - Shopping Time
After you have done all of the above, now head to Lilicove City. Go to the Dept
store in the North of the city. You'll find your rival waiting there. Defeat
Him/Her, and head to the eastern part of the town which is a coast.

Rival Battle: May/Brendan

If you choose Treecko as your starter:

Swellow  lvl 31
Wailmer lvl 32
Shroomish lvl 32
Combusken lvl 34

If you choose Torchic as your starter:

Swellow  lvl 31
Numel lvl 32
Shroomish lvl 32
Marshtomp lvl 34

If you choose Mudkip as your starter:

Swellow  lvl 31
Numel lvl 32
Wailmer lvl 32
Grovyle lvl 34

Use Surf to the north and you'll see a cave which is the base of Team
Aqua/Magma. Enter and beat the living daylight of them. Make sure you get the
Master ball. Once you've beaten the leader, you'll never be able to get back to
this place again.

Now you'll be able to surf further to the right. So Surf your way to the next
town. You might also want to fight some swimmers along the way.

Lilicove City Dept Store
Lilycove City Dept Store is the biggest Pokemart in the region. No Pokemon game
is complete without the presence of mart that rivals those the like of Celadon and
Goldenrod Pokemart.Here, you'll be able to find variety of items ranging from the
usual items that could be bought from the ordinary Pokemart, as well as TM to
secret base decorations.

First Floor:
Nothing here, this is the lobby. Head left for the lift and right for the

Second Floor:
All your daily trainers need. pokeball, Antidote. This floor has them all.

Third Floor:
This is the right place to buy items to enhance your Pokemon ability. Items
such as Carbos
and Calcium will delight your Pokemon. The items are a little bit pricey

Fourth floor:
Definitely a section where the battler will love. You can buy TM here, such as
Hyper Beam. The TM that is sold here, definitely are those that you won't encounter
often in the wild.

Fifth Floor:
The haven of all Secret Base Lover. From Pokedoll to picture, this section is
the perfect place to buy decoration items for your secret base.

There's nothing here, unless you've seen the announcement that there will be a
rooftop sale. Once you see this announcement on the TV, head for the rooftop
to find various rare secret base decorations items for sale.

Q. Mossdeep City and The Final Showdown
The 7th gym battle (at last!). You might want to get a good rod from the
fisherman in one of the house there. Not much to do in the city. Heal your Pokemon
and head for the gym. Here you need to pull down all the four switch first to be able to
reach the gym leader. In my opinion, this is the most unique and the hardest gym
leader battle. Unlike other gym leader fight, you will fight a 2 on 2 battle. In fact,
this is the only times where you will fight the gym leader in a 2 on 2 battle.

Gym Leader : Liza and Tate
Type: Psychic
Type: 2 on 2 battle
Badge: Mind Badge
Lunatone lvl 42
Solarock lvl 42

This could be a though battle. Send out Water Pokemon if you have one. Try to
take down the weaker of the two first (Solarock). Surf works quite well here, considering that
both Pokemon are part rock. You win TM 04 Calm Mind if you beat the gym leaders in addition
to the badge.

Now, Go to the house North-West of the Pokemon Center.This is Daigo's house. He
will give you HM 08.

With this HM, you'll be able to dive underwater in a deeper water (the darker
blue color). Now Rune City, the place of the last gym will be accesible. You
can go there if you wish. However, there are nothing you can do at the moment
as the gym is locked.

The Final Showdown against Magma/Aqua - Seafloor Cavern.
Surf to the South and dive underwater if you see a deeper area of water. Find a
cave with a submarines and suberged back. Now continue surfing and you'll find
yourself in a cave. Be prepared to fight your final showdown against Team
Magma/Aqua. Make sure you bring a Pokemon that knows strength and Rock Smash,
as you will need them to progress further down the cave.

On the first chamber you will see two boulders and one rock. Go to the left,
smash the rock and push the boulder down. Now head to the right and push the
right boulder to the right. By doing this, you could continue straight. Fight
the trainer and go to the nect chamber using the cave opening instead of
climbing the stairs.

Here, you will see something like this:
(#) - Boulder
# - Rock
XXX- Wall
! - You are here

    (7)#     (6)
    (4)      (5)
    (2)      (1)

Push Boulder no 1 up, head left and oush Boulder 2 to the left. Now continue
upwards and push Boulder 4 to make the way. Go to the boulder 5 and push it all
the way to the right. Head up and push Boulder 6 up. Finally, head left, smash
the rock and push Boulder 7 out of the way to go into the next chamber.

Here, you'll be in a room with 1 Pokeball. It contain TM 26, Earthquake.
Continue to the next room.

      (7) (8) (9)
        (5) (6)
          (3) (4)


Push boulder 1 one square up, Push boulder 2 one sqaure right. push Boulder 3
to the left. Push Boulder 6 to the right. Finally push boulder 9 to the right.

(9)(A)   (B)(C)
(4)         (5)


Push boulder 2 up one square, Push Boulder 1 and 3 to the side. Push boulder 2
aside. Push boulder 7 up. Push Boulder 6 and 8 to the side. Push boulder 7
again up one square. Push both Boulder A and B up. Now push boulder 7 either to
the left or right.

Now you should end up in a chamber full with mist. Make your way down the
flight of stairs. In the centre, you will see a lava/lake with Groudon/Kyogre.
Go near it (at the center), and Archie/Maxie will suddenly appear. Time for
final battle vs Team Aqua/Magma.

Aqua Leader Archie
Mightyena lvl 41
Crobat lvl 41
Sharpedo lvl 43

Magma Leader Maxie
Mightyena lvl 41
Crobat lvl 41
Camerupt lvl 43

Defeat the leader, and the whole place will shook and the legendary Pokemon
make it's exit. Soon, a leader of the rival group will arrive and you'll find
yourself in the sea. If you are playing Sapphire, the seas will be stormy due
to Kyogre's escape. If you are playing Ruby the weather will turn extrely sunny
due to Groudon escape. The Legendary Pokemon had been awakened from its deep
long sleep.

Suddenly, Steven will come and explained to you that the Legendary Pokemon has
been awakened and it has cause a major climate catasthrope in the region. Now,
you must head for Sootopolis City to stop this mess.

R. Sootopolis City - A city long forgotten
Head to the left part to the town until you see Steven talking to someone. This
is the gym leader of Sootopolis - Wallace. After this, Wallace will take you to
the cave which you couldn't enter previously. This is the Cave of Origin.
Legend said that life beagn at cave origin and ends at Mt Pyre. Its time to
descend to the ancient cave to stop the Legendary Pokemon once and for all.

Cave of Origin
HM needed: Flash

Enter the cave and make your way to the bottom. Make sure you bring with you a
Pokemon who knows Flash. Here you will find the legendary Pokemon that escaped
previously. In order to progress in the game, you need to defeat or capture the
Pokemon. It will be at level 45, and it will be a major boost to your team if
you managed to catch it. Also, remember to get HM 07 Waterfall from the cave.

Back to Sootopolis

Now heal your Pokemon, and head to the gym. You need to solve a puzzle to get
to the gym leader. In order for a ladder to apear, you need to step one every
single block of ice, and a ladder will appear. Otherwise, you'll fall down to a
place infested with junior trainers. Get your electric Pokemon out to beat the
gym as it is a Water gym. Now you'll be able to use waterfall outside battle.
With 8 badges you can go to the Pokemon leauge now.

8th gym puzzle:
You'll be familiar with this puzzle if you have played Zelda: Link to the past
before. The objective of this puzzle is to step on all the ice squares once. If
you stepped on it twice, you'll fall down to the basement where junior trainers

Gym Leader: Wallace
Type: Water
Badge:Rain Badge

Luvdisc lvl 40
Whiscash lvl 42
Sealo lvl 40
Seaking lvl 42
Milotic lvl 43

It will be an easy battle if you have an electric Pokemon. If you are playing
Ruby, you might want to send Groudon out first for the sunny day effect. If you
win the battle, the gym leader will give you TM 03. With this, you'll complete
your collection of badges. Time to head for the leauge.

S. The Last route to Victory - Ever Grande
HM needed: Everything except Cut, Fly
Now get out of the city and surf eastward until you encounter a waterfall. Now
that you've earned your 8th badge you can climb the waterfall. You'll end up in
front of a cave and there are also a Pokemon center to heal your Pokemon.
Before you enter the cave, you might want to take note that you can catch
Luvdisk by fishing in the water. Sometimes, you can find Heart Scales attached to Luvdisk,
or you can just snatch them away using Thief (TM46) or Covet. These Heart Scales could be
used for the move tutor. (See sub-section on Move tutor for more information on
the move tutor.

This will be the last cave before you'll reach the new Pokemon Leauge. The
Trainer and the wild Pokemon here will be stronger than any Pokemon that you've
fought previously. This is also a great place to train before your final
challenge. Work your way to the exit. You might need to use Flash in order to
lighten up the cave. There are loads of level 30+ and 40 + Pokemon here. You
might want to get some if you still need some pokemon to fill up your team.

Victory Road consist of three level, ground floor, Basment 1, and Basement 2.
You'll need Flash for the basements. Both entrance and exit are located in the
ground level. However, this is blocked by ledges which require you to go to the
basement in order to reach the exit.

Once you enter the Cave, head north until you see a flight of stairs. Climb it
and follow through the path. Fight the trainer and go down the ladder.

Here, head south and push the boulder aside. Afterwards head east and you'll be
blocked by a rock. Smash it to go through and climb the stairs. Follow the path
and go down the stair t ofigh a cooltrainer. Head South following the path
until you see a ladder. Climb down the ladder to get to Basement 2

Here, go north fighting a trainer on your way. You'll meet a small lake. USe
surf, and head west until you see a patch of land wit hstairs leading to
basement 1. Climb the ladder. Head South and to the East. Push the boulders and
teh rock aside and climb the ladder to go to the ground floor. You are almost
on your way to the exit now. climb the stairs north of you and just follow the
path. Before the exit of the cave, you'll battle Wally once more. So make sure
to heal your team.

Altaria lvl 47
Delcatty lvl 46
Roselia lvl 47
Magneton lvl 44
Gardevoir lvl 48

This will be your last rival battle. Take note that you must not lose this battle,
or you'll end up in the Pokemon Center that you last visited. To prevent the agony
of starting over the gruelling Victory Road, save your game before you fight him.
Heal your Pokemon, and once you are done with your preparation it's time to face him
and defeat the last obstacle to the Pokemon Leauge. Depending on your team, hopefully
you have all your six Pokemon at full health. Wally is not that difficult to defeat.
Just match up a Pokemon that have a type advantage to his Pokemon. This way, even if your
Pokemon level is slightly lower, you'll be able to beat him. After you've done with him,
make your way out of Victory Road. You'll arrive outdoor. Follow the path and soon
you'll see a grand building - The Pokemon Leauge.

The Leauge
Once you've managed to get out of the cave, you will find a huge building. This
is the Pokemon leauge and your final challenge. Heal your Pokemon and stock up
on healing item such as Full restore and revive. You should be able to beat the
elite four using a level 45-55 Pokemon. If you think that your Pokemon isn't
strong enough, you can left the League and come back later. You can fly there
easily, by fying to the top part of Ever Grande City on the map.

Now walk to the guards and talk to the mafter you've done with your preparations.
They will allow you to pass, and soon you'll be on your way to challenge the first
of the elite four.

T. Elite Four - The Final Obstacle
Here, you will battle the elite four, and the champ. Each of the elite four
will have 5 Pokemon, whereas the champ will used 6 Pokemon. Here are my
recommended types to have:


First: Sidney
Type: Dark
Mightyena lvl 46
Shiftry lvl 48
Cacturne lvl 46
Sharpedo lvl 48
Absol lvl 49

Use a Fighting Pokemon to finish off Mightyena and Absol. Fire Pokemon for
Shiftry and Cacturne. While for Sharpedo you might want to use an electric
type to beat him. You shouldn't be having problem beating him. If you do, I
would suggest to leve lup your Pokemon first. Once you beat him, head for the
next room to find the next elite four awaits.

Second: Phoebe
Type: Ghost
Dusclops lvl 48
Banette lvl 49
Sableye lvl 50
Banette lvl 49
Dusclops lvl 51

Ghost Pokemon could cause you some problem. Unlike in R/B/Y where they have
poison as their second type, ground move won't work that effectively anymore.
Send your strongest Pokemon to win this battle. Otherwise use psychic except
for battle against Sableye which is part Dark. Head for the next room for the
next battle.

Third: Glacia
Type: Ice
Glalie lvl 50
Sealo lvl 50
Glalie lvl 52
Sealo lvl 52
Walrein lvl 53

Get those Fire and Electric Pokemon for this match. Use a Fire pokemon to beat
both Glalie, as for Sealo and Walrein, send an electric Pokemon that can finish
them in one hit, or else you'll be in trouble when they attack with their ice
move. send out an Electric Pokemon against the Sealo family, but make sure you
finish the job in one turn before they can use Ice beam on you. Head for the
next room for the next battle.

Fourth: Drake
Type: Dragon
Shelgon  lvl 52
Altaria  lvl 54
Flygon   lvl 53
Flygon   lvl 53
Salamence lvl 55

If you are playing Sapphire and have captured Kyogre, this battle should be a
breeze. Use an Ice move to defeat all the Dragon Pokemon and soon you'll be on
your way to fight the Champ.

Now, it's time to battle Steven the Pokemon champ. You have met him throughout
your journey, and it's time to battle him.

Champ: Steven
Type: Steel, Ground
Skarmory lvl 57
Aggron lvl 56
Claydoll lvl 55
Cradily lvl 56
Armaldo lvl 56
Metagross lvl 58

Steven will start with a Skarmory, so put a fire Pokemon in the team. Use
Flamethrower/Overheat to finish it out. The next Pokemon may not come out in
order, but we shall discuss them according to the order above. Aggron is next,
if you have Blaziken send out a Sky Uppercut/Brick Breaker, you should be able
to knock it out easily seeing it has double weaknedd to fighting.

Next Claydoll, a Ground/Psychic Pokemon. You might want to send out a Water
Pokemon here and just Surf/Hydro Pump the critter to death. Cradily is next, if
you are playing Sapphire stick with Kyogre and use Ice Beam. Armaldo is your
next foe. It is a Bug Pokemon, but considering its second type which is Rock,
sending a fire Pokemon is not a viable option here, especially if you have sent
out Kyogre earlier.

Metagross, Steel/Psychic. Fighting Pokemon would be of a no use here, you'll be
taking the risk to use them, as Metagross knew Psychic. Take out a pure Fire
Pokemon (Ninetales, Torkoal) and use all your strongest moves.

After you succesfully beat the elite four plus the champ, Professor Birch and
your rival will arrive (Don't worry, you do not need to fight her/him). After
some dialogue, the champ will take you into the hall of fame where the trainer
and their Pokemon will be honoured. Now you can check your Pokemon that have
been included in the hall of fame by checking your Poke-Navi.

Now, Watch the ending rolls, it will show all the caption of Pokemon that you
have gotten so far in the game, as well as all the people in the production

The End? Not yet, there are still some things you can do within your game.
After you continue your game, you'll end up in your room. Go down the stairs
and your father will give you an S.S ticket. Using this ticket, you'll be able
to visit the battle tower on board the S.S. Tidal

4. Miscellanous
Below are some miscallenous info about thing to do while playing the game and
after beating the game.

A. Back in Littleroot Town

Once you continue the game, you'll end up in your room in Littleroot Town. Now
go down the stairs. Here, you will see The fihft gym leader (which is also your
father) and your mom talking. The fifth gym leader will walk up to you and
handed you a boat  ticket. You can use this boat ticket to go from Slateport
City to Lilicove City and the reverse.  You can also go to battle tower. To hop
on the boat go to the harbor in the two cities mentioned.

B. Safari Zone
The new safari zone in Hoenn is located near Lilycove city. Here you can
capture some Pokemon such as Rhyhorn, Girafarig. First of all, to enter Safari
zone you need to have Pokeblock Blender that you get from a girl in Slateport
City. Once inside the safari zone, the format is the same like safari zone in
R/B/Y. You will be given 30 Safari ball, and you cannot use any Pokemon to
weaken the opposing Pokemon.

There are three main areas in Safari Zone. In the first area, you can catch
Wobbuffet, as well as Pikachu. To go to the second area, you would need to get
an Acro Bike. Went to the white ramp, and to get to the other side press B+the
direction you want it to hop simultaneously. (you must get the timing right in
order for this to work). In this second area, you will able to catch Pokemon
such as Heracross and Phanphy. To get to the third area, you will need a fast
bike. Go to the mud-slide and use your Mach Bike to climb it. In this area you
will be able to catch Pinsir.

Pokemon catchable in Safari Zone:
Rhyhorn (3rd area)
Phanphy (2nd area)
Heracross (2nd area)
Pinsir (3rd area)

C. Sky Pillar and Pacifidlog Town
Previously, before you beat the elite four you can go to this town. However,
you can only knows about the existence of a secret island then. Now that you've
beaten the elite four, you can go to the secret island.

Now, before you do anything else, go to Slateport city and head to the bike
shop. Talk to the man, and you will receive a fast bike.

Go back to Pacifidlog Town, and surf eastward. Try to surf to the North, if you
have beaten the elite four you'll find a new path at the middle of the route
taking you North. Surf around there and you'll find a patch of land with a
cave. Go through the cave, and you'll end up in another place. walk a bit and
you'll see a gigantic tower.

Sky Pillar.

First Floor
This is straightforward, just head for the stairs and climb up to the second
floors. There are wild Pokemon here, use repel if you want to.

Second Floor
You might have notice that crack in the floor. To be able to get past them, you
need your fast bike. After you managed to get through all the crack, head for
the stairs

Third Floor.
There are two stairs here beside the one that you entered from. Go to the right
stairs, as the middle stairs is blocked.

Fourth Floor
Probably the trickiest part of all. This will require you to get through all
the crack at one go. You can't stop, or else your bike will lost its momentum.
Go to the middle roughly where the area of the middle stairs in the previous
floor, and drop down.

Third Floor
Go to the stairs and climb to the next level

Fourth floor
Once you stepped out of the stairs, move to the left and climb the stairs.

Fifth Floor
This is as straightforward as the first floor, just find another stairs up

Sixth Floor
Be prepared to fight another Legendary Pokemon

Rayquaza lvl 70
This Pokemon is a Dragon/Flying legendary Pokemon. However, it has some Dragon
move as well. Also in terms of stats this Pokemon is the strongest the game.
Use an electric Pokemon to chip down his HP. and keep trying to throw Pokeball.

D. The Three Regi
The Regi are the new legendary trio Pokemon in the game. To get them, you must
do certain things. First, you need to catch a Relicanth and a Wailord. Now, go
to Pacifidlog Town, and surf to the west. You'll encounter water with strong
current here, make your way to the spot where you can dive. Dive underwater and
keep going till you see an inscription in braille. Emerge back and you'll find
yourself in a cave filled with brailles. If you translate this, the braille
will gives you the alphabet.

Location of Relicanth (coelancatch Pokemon): Underwater, near the 8th  gym.
(it's quite uncommon)

Location of Wailord: Evolve it from Wailmer which could be found from Route 122
using a good rod. You could also try fishing at route 129. Wailord is quite
rare there.

Go to the middle slate of the braille and use dig. This should break open the
stuff. Go into the next room, and put Relicanth as your first Pokemon, and
Wailord as the last Pokemon in your party. Press on the slate, and now there
should be an earthquake. There should be a message saying that a door was heard
to be opened somewhere. Now leave the cave to capture the three Regi.

Now, to find Regice, go back to Dewford Town, and surf to the North. Surf
around until you find a little island with a guy surrounded in trees. Now go
left and keep surfing up. You'll find yourself in an island with small
mountain. Go in, stand in the middle of the braille wall, and press A. Patience
is golden, so wait for a few minute and a door leading to a lvl 40 Regi-Ice
will appear.

Go to the Safari zone, and go left instead of entering until you see a stairs.
With a super Nerd standing near it. go up the stairs and continue north. You'll
find yourself in an area that's raining. As usual you'll encounter the braille,
in the cave. Go to the middle of the cave and use fly.  Go to the next room,
and Regi-Steel should be there now.

Go to Fallarbor Town. go right, until you reach a desert where you find the
fossil. you should get into another mound and an entrance. go to the middle of
the braille slate. Move to the right twice, and down twice, use strength and a
door leading to Regi-Rock will appear.

E. Shoal Cave
Shoal cave is located north of Mossdeep City. When it is high tide, the cave is
flooded and you will be able to get 4 blue crystal. When it's low tide, you'll
be able to get items such as TM 02 Dragon Claw. The cave is also the nest of
ice Pokemon such as Snorunt.

If you gave the 4 blue crystal and salts to the old man when the cave is
flooded, you'll get a shell bell which have a somewhat similar effect as

F. Latias and Latios
Latias and Latios appears randomly throughout the grassy areas and the water.
To trigger the event, you'll need to watch the TV stating that a strange Pokemon
has been sighted over Hoenn. This could only be gotten after you have beaten the
Elite Four.

To capture Latias and Latios, you need some luck. If you know about the three
legendary dogs in crystal, you should know what comes ahead. Battle with Latias
and Latios are random anywhere on grassy area in Hoenn. It is recommended that
you carry a master ball along if you haven't used it on Rayquaza. If you are
playing Ruby, you'll be able to capture Latios in the wild. Whereas if you are
playing Sapphire you'll be able to capture Latias. Of course, the best and most
effective way here is to use the master ball.

In addition to that, you'd be able to capture the other Lati at Southern Island.
To get there, you'll need the Eon ticket whoch could be gotten from Pokemon Center,
NYC. Before that, you'll need to edit your profile and entered the phrase
"Mystery Events is exciting." Once you've gotten the ticket, go to Slateport harbor
and you'll be taken to Southern Island. Remember to bring all the necessary equipments
as you could only visit this island once.

Nicholas the Dragon Tamer. Head down, and turn left. Head for the stairs down.
Surf at the water to a small chamber. On a small strip of land on the top,
there is TM 02 Dragon Claw. This is also the only area where you could get

H. Battle Tower
After you have received the boat ticket, you will be able to go to the Battle
Tower. I'm still quite not sure on how the new battle Tower works, but it
appear that you can compete in two categories, "up to level 50" and up to level
100. Another thing to taken note of, is that you can't use any of the
legendaries Pokemon in the battle tower.

So the following Pokemon are not allowed in battle tower: Regi Steel, Regi Ice,
Regi Rock, Kyogre, Groudon, Requaza, Jirrachi, Deoxys.

You'll fight a 7 consecutive random battle. Below are my battle tower team:

Mirror Coat
Destiny Bond

Ice Beam

Aerial Ace
Brick BReaker

TIPS: Try to bring a team that could cover as many weakness as possible.

By winning 50 vitories in a row and 100 victories in a row, you'll be able to
get Silver Shield and Gold shield respectively. They are secret base

I. Hidden Machine
In total, there are 8 HM in this game. Each time you beat a gym ,you'll be able
to use a HM outside a battle. There is one new HM, Dive which will allow you to
dive underwater, and now Rock Smash is a HM. However, HM 06, Whirlpool is

if you found some colour fragments, you can exchange it with a man at water
route 124 (there is a houses) near Mossdeep City. the fragments can be found under
water.(red fragment for fire, green for leaf, blue for water, yellow for thunder,
and so on).

K. Fossils
In Ru/Sa, there are two new fossil you can get, the root fossil and the claw

To get them, go to the upper-right corner of the dessert. Just like Helix
fossil and Dome fossil in R/B/Y, you can only choose one of the two fossil.
Once you have them, go to Kanazumi city and enter the building in which you get
your Poke-Navi (It's in the western part of the town). Go to second floor, and
talk to the scientist. Make sure you have an extra space in your team to get
the resurrected  prehistoric Pokemon.  Come back to the building after some
time, and your fossil should have been brought to life by now. The Pokemon that
you will get will be a lvl 20 Lileep/Anorith (depending on the fossil you chose
earlier). They will evolve at level 40. If you choose the claw fossil, you'll
be able to get Anorith. If you choose the Root fossil you'll be able to get
Lileep.  Anorith is a rock/bug type, whereas Lileep is a rock/bug type.

L. New Mauville
Items: Escape Rope, Full Heal, Paralyze Heal, Thunderstone
New Mauville is located just south of Mauville City. You need to get the
Basement key from the third gym leader sometimes later in the game. After you
get surf, you'll find Wattson standing in the middle of the town. He will tell
you that there are something wrong with the generator at New Mauville, and give
you the basement key. So, exit the town and head southwards. Near the entrance
of the cycling rod, surf eastward and you should see a cave. Go in, and you'll
see a steel door. Since you've got the basement key, you could go on.

Here, you can capture Pokemon such as Magnemite and Voltorb. You can also get
the Thunder Stone here in the same room as the generator. By fixing the
generator, the third gym leader will give you TM 24-Thunderbolt as a reward.

M. Special Pokemon

N. S.S. Tidal
After beating the elite four, your father will give you an S.S. Ticket. By
using this ticket, you'll be able to hop on board the S.S. Tidal, the invention
of Capt Slate. To hop aboard, go to harbor at Lilycove or Slateport. You can
either choose to go to the battletower, or taking a route between the two
cities mentioned above. There are a few trainers here. For those who have been
playing Pokemon Gold and Silver, SS Tidal works the same way as SS Aqua does.
You only need to sleep in your cabin for the ship to reach its destination.

O. The Nickname Rater, Move Tutor and the move Forgettor

You can find the Nickname rater at Slateport City. You can have your nickname
rated and changed. you can't change a Pokemon nickname that you've gotten from
a trade though.

To the right of Mauville City on Route 118, you come to a watery edge, there is
a pokemon trainer who is the classic fisherman guy with teh red baseball cap
and jacket, near him is a rock, on the north side of the rock if you check it,
there is a "Heart Scale: Its a lovely scale. It is covetted by collectors".
You can give these heart scales to the move tutor. The move tutor will teached
moved that your pokemon learned naturally and has forgotten it earlier. You can
find him at Fallarbor Town.

The Move forgettor allow you to delete moves off your Pokemon ,even HM moves.
He could be find in Lilycove City.

TIPS: You could steal Heart Scale from Luvdisc. While not all Luvdisc has them,
but it shouldn't be too hard obtaining some heart scale.

P. Game Corner
First, you'll need to get the coin case. To do this, you'll need to buy a
Harbor Mail. (could be bought from Slateport Pokemart for $50). Next, trade it
with the girl living beside MAUVILLE city Pokemon mart.

In the game corner, you'll be able to purchase either 50 coins for 1000 Poke,
or 500 Coins for 10000 Poke. Talk to the girl beside the counter to get a free
doll. There are two kinds of games here.

The Slot Machine
In the slot machine, your objctive is to get three of the same kinds, either
vertically, or diagonally. (depends on how many coins you useD). If you use 1
coin, the only line that will be counted will be the horizontal line running
through the middle. Betting 2 coins for all the horizontal lines, and 3 coins
for all the horizontal and diagonal lines.

The Roulette
There are two roulette machines here. One with the minimum wager of 1 coins and
one with the minimu wager of 3 coins. Upon selecting the machine, you'll be
taken to a screen showing a 4 times 3 box, each box with a picture of Pokemon

where the Gamefreaks team is staying. Go to the second floor and Talk to
Satoshi Tajiri, he'll giev you a diploma certifying that you've completed the

What do this diploma do?
Nothing, just for bragging rights.

R. The TV
Sometimes, it might be a good idea to watch the TV. Mainly there are some
important events that the TV triggered.

1. Latias/Latios - In order to catch Latios and Latias, you'll need to watch
the TV at your house first after you've beaten the elite four.
2. Pokemon Outbreak - Namely Skitty and Surskit. Remember Remoraid, Yanma or
Dunsparce in G/S/C. Skitt yand Surskit are normally hard to catch, when the TV
reported an outbreak of Surskit or Skitty, you'll have a significantly higher
chance of encountering them in the wild.
3. Lilycove City Clear out sale - You'll need to watch the TV to know when this
is being held. By missing this sale out, you'll miss a variety secret base
decorations, such as the TV (ironic, isn't it), and Rhydon Doll.

S. The Lottery
You could buy a Pokemon lottery ticket at Lilycove department store, ground
floor. Just like Buena in G/S/C, the Lottery ticket worked in a similar way. If
your lottery number matches your Pokemon ID, you will win the lottery. The more
number matches, the more exclusive will the prize be. To boost your chance of
winning the lottery, you'll need to do a lot of trading. Each ticket is free,
but you coudl only buy them once a day.

T. Berry Master
Ever wonder where you could get those berries that you seem you can't get. You
could get these berries form the berry master wives. They lives on a house at
route 123. The berries that she'll give you depends on the phrase that you

Below are the phrases that you could put in, and the corresponding rare
berries that you will get.
Great Battle - Spelon Berry
Super Hustle - Belue Berry
Challenge Contest - Pamtre Berry
Cool Latios - Durin Berry
Overwhelming Latias - Watmel Berry

Note that some of the saying only appears after you've done certain events. For
example, for the words "Latias" and "Latios" or for any Pokemon for that
matter, you'll need to encounter them first before the word is available.

U. Abandoned Ship

Abandoned Ship lay on route 108, between Dewford Town and Slateport City. In
order to complete this quest, you would need to have a Pokemon with the
knowledge of Surf and Dive.

When you arrive, head straight. This will take you to a room with 4 cabins.
Head to the staircase in the North-East. This will take you to another room.
You could see a sailor here, with one cabin with locked door in his right. This
is the storeroom. You need to get the ley first before you continue. Now head
to the staircase at the North-West end of the room. Here's another room. Grab
the Pokeball and go out. You'll find yourself on the entrance at the first
level of the ship. Go up to the second level and enter the room. Talk to the
scientist, and he will explain that Capt Slate wanted him to investigate the
ship. Before you left, he will give you the storeroom key.

Go back to the locked room. Opened the door and grab the item, now go back to
the room with sailor. Enter the midlle room at the cabin in the bottom row.
Here you will see water at the south end of the room. You'll also see deeper
patch of water which you can dive. Use dive there

Go along the underwater path, and resurfaced when you can do so. You'll find
yourself at another room. Here's there are six cabins. Some of them are locked.
Go to the third cabin in the South to get a Water Stone. Flashing lights means
that there are hidden items there. (the key to the other locked cabins).

Now, you can get the scanner. Head back to Slateport harbor and talk to Capt
Slate. HE'll exchange you the scanner for Deepseatooth, or Deepseascale - you
choice. Both are needed to evolve Clamperl.

V. Pokemon Center
Pokemon Center could be found at almost every town, with the exception of
Littleroot Town. At first level, there is Nurse Joy. Talk to her to heal your
Pokemon. On her left, there is a PC which you can use to deposit Pokemon and
items. The people at the first floor will talk to you miscallaneous info about

At second floor, there are three counters. To use this three features, you'll
need to link to another Ruby/Sapphire games. These are:

Pokemon Cable Club Colloseum
Here you can battle your friends. There are three types of battle. Single
Battle will allow you to battle your friends on a 1 on 1 matches. Double battle
works the same way, only this time the battle will be a 2 on 2. Multi Battle is
an option for four trainers. On the left, there is an info showing your battle

Pokemon Cable Club Trade Center
Here you'll be able to trade Pokemon with your friends.

Pokemon Cable Club Record Center

secret base will appear in your game. The guy at Mauville City Pokemon Center
will change as well.

W. Mossdeep Space Center
At Northeast of Mossdeep City, there is a space center. Here you'll find a
white rock outside the center. Meanwhile, inside the center you'll learn some
information regarding Houen. The scientist at the end of the first floor will
talk to you about the number of successful launch. The number of launches,
depends on the time that you've spent on the game. There is 1 launch per week.
Currently, there aren't anything significant about this building.

P.S. A big thanx to Gamefaqs for letting me use SOME walkthroughs.
