This is the begginning of your adventures. You started out in
a truck. It

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.

town. Exit the town and head to route 101.
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
Buy some potions and left for the next route. As usual, Nurse Joy is

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
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

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

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 will remind you of Viridian Forest. There are heaps of
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.
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.

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.
Leader : Liza and Tate
Type: 2 on 2 battle

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
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
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

Altaria lvl 47
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
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,
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
see a grand building - The Pokemon 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.
will allow you to pass, and soon you'll be on your way to challenge the first
of the elite four.
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
Mightyena lvl 46
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
room to find the next elite four awaits.
Dusclops lvl 48
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
Glalie lvl 50
Sealo lvl 50
Glalie lvl 52
Walrein lvl 53
Get those Fire and Electric Pokemon for this match. Use a Fire pokemon to beat
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.
Shelgon lvl 52
Altaria lvl 54
Flygon lvl 53
Salamence lvl 55
If you are playing Sapphire and have captured Kyogre, this battle should be a
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.
Skarmory lvl 57
Aggron lvl 56
Claydoll lvl 55
Cradily lvl 56
Armaldo lvl 56
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,
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
(Ninetales, Torkoal) and use all your strongest moves.
After you succesfully beat the elite four plus the champ, Professor
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
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
End? Not yet, there are still some things you can do within your game.

capture some Pokemon such as Rhyhorn, Girafarig. First
of all, to enter Safari

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

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
you'll be able to capture Latias. Of course, the best and most
effective way here is to use the master ball.
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

the TV. Mainly there are some
important events that the TV triggered.

when the TV
reported an outbreak of Surskit or Skitty, you'll have a significantly higher
chance of encountering them
in the wild.

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.

the Lottery ticket worked in a similar way. If
your lottery number matches your Pokemon ID, you will win the lottery. The
