The remainder are the same attacks listed above.
Squirtle's water attacks are not very effective on
Misty's Pokemon. It will be destroyed while battling Electricity,
Grass, and Poison types in the next three gyms. It would be average
against Psychic types and does well against Fire types and will
be fine in the last gym.
Bulbasaur will do well against Rock and Water types. It will also
do fine with Electricity types, but will not do great with its
own type and Poison. It would do well against Psychic and bad
against Fire types. It does well in the eighth gym.
Charmander will not do very well with Rock or Water types. However,
it will do well with Electricity and destroy Grass and Poison
types. It does well with Psychic and average with Fire. It does
not do very well in the last gym.
The U.S. version of the game contains the following
glitch Pokemon, which is obtained by using these steps. Go to
Cinnabar Island. Enter into the building where the man makes Pokemon
out of fossils. Enter the first room in the building with people
that want to trade Pokemon. Trade with one of these people; it
does not matter which one. Go back outside and move to the far
right side of the building. Then, SURF up and down the side of
the island while half on land and half in the water. Keep surfing
until challenged by a glitch that resembles a microchip or barcode.
He is part bird and part water type and starts on level 80. Note:
Obtaining Missingno can keep the game from continuing correctly,
including preventing linked battles, and other bad effects. It
is recommended that Missingno be released unless you are just
experimenting with the game.
Go to Viridian City and talk to the old man. When he
asks if you are in a hurry, answer "No". After he explains
how to catch a Weedle, fly to Cinnabar Island. SURF on the side
of Cinnabar that faces the Seafoam Islands to find the Pokemon
"M". You may also find level 132 Mewtwos and Alakazams.
Note: Obtaining M can keep the game from continuing correctly,
including preventing linked battles, and other bad effects. It
is recommended that M be released unless you are just experimenting
with the game.
By using this trick, you also have a very rare chance of getting
For unlimited money, place a gold nugget in the sixth
item slot and get ninety-nine of them by using the "Unlimited
items" trick. Sell all except one to increase your money.
Use the remaining gold nugget to repeat this procedure. Go to
any Pokemart and sell the nuggets until you have 999,999 coins.
Go to Celadon City and go to the Game Corner. Go inside and talk
to the man at the counter, who is on the right of the counter.
He will ask you if you need coins. Say yes. He will give you 50
coins. Continue until you have about 7,000 coins. Now you can
buy any item or Pokemon in the Prize Exchange house.
Using a Full Restore with the "Unlimited items" trick
can also result in a large amount of money when sold.
Instead of repeatedly paying to get in the Safari Zone,
save the game after entering. Then, instead of paying again, just
turn off the Game Boy and turn it back on.
Super potions cost 700 and revive by 50. However, in the Celedon
City Department Store, lemonade costs 350 and revives by 80. Note:
This is on the fifth floor, at the vending machines.
If you do not want fight all the gym leaders or people
who want a fight while wandering in the cities, just avoid them
by walking past while they are looking away.
If you have Pokemon Stadium on the Nintendo
64, you can erase at least 1 HM. If you have at least 1 TM that
the proposed Pokemon can learn, you should be able to erase an
More than one rare candy item slot
Note: This code requires six badges, FLY, CUT, SURF,
and may only be done after the Elite 4 are defeated. Use the "Unlimited
items" trick for "Rare Candys". Then, fly to Cerulean
City and go to the end of the Nugget Bridge. Turn left to where
there is a long strip of grassy area bordered by water. Then,
SURF through the water path to the hidden dungeon. Fight various
Pokemon and find a Rare Candy, then save the game. Turn off the
game, then load the previously saved game. Tight another Pokemon
or two, then press [Start], go to items, two slots of Rare
Candys should appear. Note: This trick may not work every time,
and may also be done on Victory Road.
Catch Pokemon easier
Duplicate a Master Ball using the "Unlimited Items"
trick. Then, use the Master Balls on all the Pokemon that you
do not have to quickly capture them.
Use False Swipe until there is 1 HP remaining, then paralyze them.
This will make it harder for them to break out.
Level up at a Day Care
For the Day Care, 1 step is equal to 1 EXP point. So,
putting a low level Pokemon, or a Pokemon that does not need many
EXP points to level up is the easiest way to use the daycare center.
High level Pokemon will require about half the game's worth of
steps before it will evolve once. Also, do not leave unevolved
Pokemon there too long, as they can level up past their evolution
point and still be the same type of Pokemon.
Note: If you leave a Pokemon at the Day Care, the Pokemon will
not evolve or get new moves. For example, If you leave a level
9 Caterpi in the Day Care to grow it a little so it can be a Metapod
at level 10, it will not change. Also, most likely it will pass
level 10 in the daycare.
Make a Pokemon run out of power points for a move it
learned on its own. Then, store it in the PC, take it out, and
heal it. One or more of its stats will be raised slightly.
Pokemon from the Game Corner
Pokemon that are bought at the Game Corner are higher
in level than when you catch them in the wild.
Reviving Pokemon easily
Note: This trick requires a level 99 or less Pokemon,
a Rare Candy, and a Max Potion. If a Pokemon faints, use the Rare
Candy, then the Potion or Max Potion. Note: The battle must end
before doing this trick.
Teleporting old man
This trick is similar to the old man on roof trick.
Go into Celadon City. Store your bike on the PC, then go to the
building that leads to Cycling Road. When you try to go past the
guard, he will tell you that no pedestrians are allowed on Cycling
Road. While he is telling you this, look at the wall behind him.
The old man will be on top of the wall. When you move back by
one little square, go down toward the stairs and try to get past
the guard again. He will tell you the same thing again, and this
time the old man will be a little to your left.
An easy way to earn experience for a weaker Pokemon
is to put your lowest-level Pokemon at the top of your list. When
a fight begins, it will be the first Pokemon released. Instead
of fighting, just switch to a stronger Pokemon. The weaker Pokemon
will share the experience from the battle without being put in
any danger. This is a good way to make your Pokemon gain experience
Place the Pokemon that you want to level up at the top of your
list. Fight the Elite Four, then switch to the Pokemon you want
to win with, and bring it out. Keep repeating this with every
trainer and Pokemon.
When you go to the house with the group of casino machines,
press [B] on the gambling people's backs to gain 10 to 20
coins each. You can get up to 120 coins this way.
Note: This trick requires another Game Boy and Pokemon
game. Trade the Pokemon to be cloned, and have the other player
get a Pokemon that he or she does not care about. Trade them,
and make sure the player receiving the bad Pokemon can see the
other player's screen. When the Game Boy that receives the good
Pokemon's displays "Waiting", get ready to shut the
other Game Boy off. When the "Waiting" message disappears,
turn off the Game Boy that is receiving the bad Pokemon. When
the "Trade completed" message appears, turn off the
remaining Game Boy. Both games will have the same good Pokemon
when they are turned back on. Note: Do not attempt this trick
with any saved games you wish to keep, as it can corrupt those
files if done incorrectly.
Keep earning money
Here is a great way to keep getting money even after
beating all the trainers in the game. Keep betting the Pokemon
league 4 and your rival repeatedly. You can beat them an unlimited
number of times. This is also a useful to build levels quickly.
