Primary Collection of Cheats
In-game reset
Press [A] + [B] + [Start] + [Select] during game play to reset the game.

Get heads on coin
Press [A] when the Pikachu coin is spinning right on Pikachu's face. Note: This requires precise timing.

Get tails on coin
Press [Up] just before the opponent's coin is displayed when battling an opponent. If done correctly, it will land on tails most of the time.

Free booster pack
To get a free booster pack, go to your PC.

Start a duel with anyone. As soon as you receive your hand, pick the top card and select "Check". Turn off game off, then back on. Choose "Continue" from the diary. When you continue, you will be in front of the person you were dueling previously. They will say that they lost and will give you booster packs. Note: This works on all opponents, including the Grand Masters.

To get the easiest booster packs, fight the girl on the left where the leader is in the Water gym. She has two prizes and always brings out Staryu, Dratini, and Goldeen. Be sure to make a very good Lightning deck. She will only give you two Coliseum packs. Every booster contains a free Gyardos and Diglett; you will find a good selection.

Go to a club and talk to the master. Then, go to a computer to get an easy booster pack, even if you have already gotten that mail.

Four booster packs from battling
Go to Imanaku in the Fighting Club after talking to a girl at the Fire Club. Talk to her and she will tell you to look for Imanaku. Battle him. If you win, he will give you four booster packs.

Unlimited energy cards
In Dr. Masons Lab, both Sam and Aaron will give you a pack full of energy when you defeat them/ Sam only plays with two prizes, making him faster to defeat.

To get ten free energy cards, go to Sam at Dr. Mason's Laboratory. Challenge him to a normal duel. If you get the first move do the following:
1. Place Goldeen on the arena
2. Place Staryu on the bench
3. Attach one water energy on Goldeen
4. Attack with Horn Attack
5. Attach a Psychic energy to Goldeen
6. Evolve it into a Seaking
7. Attack w/ Waterfall
8. Attack with Horn Attack
9. Attach Water energy on Staryu
10. Attack with Waterfall
11. Replace Seaking with Staryu
12. Attack with Slap
13. Use Potion on Staryu
14. Attach any energy on Staryu
15. Attack with Slap
16. Evolve it into Starmie
17. Attack with Starfreeze (2x)
Organize your cards
Press [Select] to organize your cards.

Peek at deck
Use a card that allows you to look in your deck. As soon as you are finished, turn off the game. Select "Continue Duel". You have just peeked at your deck without shuffling.

Peek at prizes
To look at all of your prizes in your duel, defeat the defending Pokemon and look at one of your prizes. Then, either reset the game or shut it off. Select "Continue Duel" and defeat the same Pokemon again and look at other prizes. Repeat this until you see all of your prizes.

Charizard card
Select the Charmander and Friends deck at the start of the game.

Gyarados card
Defeat Sara in the Water Club to get to Colosseum Booster Packs. They each have a Gyarados.

Mew card
There is a Mew card with a purple background that looks just like the non lvl 2 version. It can be only acquired through Card Pop, and is extremely rare and powerful.

Easy medals
When you have a lot of cards and not a lot of medals, make a deck of Pokemon cards that is strong against the medal you want. For example, if you want the Fire Medal make a deck of Water Pokemon. Note: This trick does not work well for the Psychic Medal, because Psychic is weak against Psychic.

Easy win
If your opponent sends out Kangashkahn as their first Pokemon, you can easily win by attacking Kangashkahn until it has a few HP remaining. Your opponent will most likely have one energy card attached to Kangashkahn, and will use the attack Fetch. If you do not attack Kangashkahn and knock it out, your opponent will keep drawing cards until they have no cards remaining in their deck.

Easy win decks
There is no penalty for not having a basic Pokemon in your hand, so you should make the following deck:
Pokeball's, Computer Searches, or any other Trainers that may help
4 Exeggcute
4 Exeggcutor
As many Plant and Psychic energy as possible
Get an Exxegutor out and start placing energies. Use Exeggitor's Big Explosion attack, which does 20x the amount of heads, one per energy card. There is no limit to the damage, so 20 energy x 20 heads = 400 damage.

Booster packs
Professor Mason will give you a booster pack after every email that he sends you.

Talk to the Club Leaders but do not duel them. Check your email and you will get a letter with a booster pack. This works with everyone except the Electric Club leader.

Battle Imikuni? several times and you will get packs such as Evolution and Laboratory packs. He is easy to defeat because he uses cards such as Psyducks and the Special Imikuni? card that confuses his own Pokemon.

Get different cards from Professor Mason
Save the game before reading the email from Professor Mason. Whenever you get a type of card you do not want, reload the game. The cards will be different when the game is resumed.

Energy booster pack
After getting your own deck, go to Sam and offer to play a real duel. You will use the same practice deck and the flow of the game will be the same as during the tutorial. If you win, you will get booster pack full of energy.

Familiar faces
When you go to the Psychic Card Club there is a person in green. He is your character in the Red, Blue, and Yellow versions of Pokemon.

Gene the Rock Club Master looks very similar to Professor Oak when challenged to a match.

Walking faster
Hold [B] while walking to move faster.

Ishihara's disappearance
After you trade Ishihara all the cards she will disappear. Go to the Rock Club and a woman will tell you that Ishihara left.

Faster card shuffling
Press [B] if you do not want to wait for the cards to be done shuffling.

Start challenge cup faster
Defeat a few people (works best with a few club leaders), then save the game by writing in your diary. Turn off the game. Repeat saving a few more times, then go to Challenge Hall. Note: This does not always work.

Check your prizes
When you defeat your opponent's Pokemon, you can draw a prize. Draw a prize then turn off your game. Turn it back on, then press [Start] at the title screen. Select "Continue Duel" and resume just before your opponent's Pokemon fainted. Faint it again and select a different prize. Repeat this step and you will see all your prizes.

Imanuki card
Go to each club lounge until you find Imakuni. Then battle him to get four booster packs for each victory. However, he may instead give you his Imakuni card. Repeat this until you have most of the cards needed to build a healthy deck.

You can use the Imanuki card to cure all status problems. If your Pokemon is affected by a special condition such as Poison or Sleep, play the Imanuki card to cure those problems. You will be confused, but can always get heads on the coin by pressing the [A] button when it is on Pikachu's face.

Always fight Imanuki
Go to one of the Card Clubs (Lightning, Fire, Water or Fighting clubs) and save your game in the middle of the medal picture. Turn off your Game Boy Color, then turn it back on and choose to continue your saved game. Go to either one of the clubs and when you hear the strange music, fight him. When you defeat him, save your game and turn it off again. Note: Every time you save your game and turn it off, the next time you turn it back on Imakuni will be in any of those four clubs. Note: You have to talk to the girl in the Fighting club in order for him to appear.

Promo Slowpoke card
Once you have collected many energies, go to the Fire Club. There will be a person standing by the bookshelf. He will ask you to give all of your extra energy cards that you do not have in your decks. He will then tell you to go two spaces left of the bookshelf (at the picture). Press [A] to get a promotional Slowpoke card, which can use Amnesia and Headbutt. Amnesia calls for two Psychic Energy cards. Headbut does 10 damage and uses one of any kind of energy card.

Get more Charizard, Blastoise, or Venasaur cards
Go to the Grass Club. Fight the woman in the upper left corner. Defeat her to get two Evolution Booster Packs. Repeat this until you get the desired amount. Note: This may require a few attempts.

Challenge Cup prizes
Go to the top center of the game map to find the Challenge Cup. You can compete in the Challenge Cup located in the Challenge Hall after you obtain your 3rd and 5th medal. If you battle there, you will get a rare card. It is hard to get in, because it is usually closed. Keep on visiting after every battle. If you enter you, will fight three trainers. The third one will be Ronald if you did not beat the game. After you beat the game, Ronald will not appear. These are the cards that you can get:
Mewtwo Lv. 60: The one that comes with the Pokemon VHS
Mewtwo Lv. 60: The one obtained if you went to the movies
Mew Lv. 8: Game Boy only
Surfing Pikachu Lv. 13: Game Boy only or Japanese card
Surfing Pikachu Lv. 13: Same as above, but a different number
Flying Pikachu Lv. 12: Game Boy only or Japanese card
Ivy Pikachu Lv. 16: Promo #1
Slowpoke Lv. 9: Game Boy only
Jigglypuff Lv.12: #2 (?)
Pikachu Lv. 16: You get it if you went to the movies
Electabuzz Lv. 20: You get it at the movies
Super Energy Retrieval: Game Boy only
Different cards in Challenge Cup
When you are in the Challenge Cup, save the game after defeating the second to the last opponent. After you defeat the opponent and win a card, if it is one that you already have or do not want, shut off the game and continue from the save. You should be at the very last opponent. After you defeat him there will be a different card than the last time. Note: Continue this if needed.

Card Pop! Specials
The following very rare cards are only obtainable in Card Pop.
Lv.15 Mew HP 50
1. Mystery Attack (Does a random damage or may cause random effect)

Lv.64 Venusaur HP 100
1. Pokemon Power: Solar Power (Cures both Pokemon from an effect)
2. Mega Drain (Does 40 damage, removes damage equal to half of damage of the defending Pokemon)
Grand Masters victory
When you defeat the Grand Masters, go to the deck machine on the top of the screen before you get the cards to build a strong deck. If you do not do this, the game will proceed to the credits and you will have to battle again,

Fire Club trade
To get the Lv.9 promo Slowpoke easier, put all of your energies except one in temporary decks. Then, talk to the boy. He will reveal the location for only 1 energy.

Finding Mitch's students
In order to fight Mitch of the Fighting Club, you must first defeat his three students. They are all training at different clubs. Jessica is in the Lightning Club, in the room on the left. Chris is in the Rock Club in the same room. The last student, Michael, is in the Grass Club just as you walk in. He will be next to the plant. After you defeat them, they will all return to the Fighting Club.

Defeat the Grand Champions
When you defeat a Grand Master and are prompted to prepare your deck, answer "Yes". You will be able to save the game. If you lose. just turn off the game and restart at the Grand Master again rather than starting from the beginning or losing the legendary cards. Note: This also is useful during the Challenge Cup.

Defeating Brittany
Do not use just fire-type Pokemon, as you do for the other members of the Grass Club. Use varied Pokemon instead, because Brittany uses an "Etcetera" deck (with many different kinds of Pokemon).

Defeating Ronald
After you defeat the four Grand Masters, you will battle Ronald. He got to the cards one step ahead of you. Ronald's deck already has the four legendary cards, and thus is difficult to beat. Use Hitmonlee's (Lv. 30) Stretch Kick and knock out Ronald's benched Pokemons one by one. This is best done when he has his Kangaskhan on the arena, because he will need three energy cards to retreat. Since this kick does not apply resistance on the benched Pokemons, they can still be hurt even if they have resistance to Hitmonlee (Fighting).

Try the following when in a room that when you leave, has you play against Ronald. Even if you have defeated the Boss/Leader, he/she and his/her cronies still can fought be repeatedly defeated for two booster packs a piece. This will allow you to get the cards needed to defeat Ronald.

Defeating Sam
Send out Staryu. Place Goldeen on the bench. Put Water Energy on Staryu. End your turn with Slap. Put Water Energy on Goldeen. Evolve Goldeen into Seaking. Use Slap. Replace Staryu with Seaking. Give Seaking Water Energy and attack. Sam put Raticate. Attack with Waterfall, two times.

Ronald's revenge
After you get all 228 cards, go to the Challenge Hall and the last person you battle will be Ronald.

Rare cards
After you get two medals, go to the Challenge Dome. You will fight three people, including Ronald for a rare Mewtwo card. If you return and compete in different matches, you can receive rarer cards, like a Level 8 Mew.

More cards from the Grand Masters
After defeating the four Grand Masters, go back and fight them again to win more cards.

Writing in the Diary
After you receive your first two medals, save your game. Right after the second medal battle, you will face Ronald or your rival. This way, if you lose, you can restart the card fight. Ronald will also fight you after you win your fourth or fifth medal.

Retry battle
When you have a bad outcome or use a wrong attack in a battle, just turn the system off. This will save the battle, which you can return to and repeat your turn. This is useful when you do not want to lose a Pokemon. Simply allow your opponent to attack, then turn off the Game Boy.

Glitch: Play with no prizes
Evolve a Ghastly into a Gengar. Then, take all but one prize. If your opponent has any Pokemon with only ten HP remaining, use Gengar Pokemon Power: Curse and move a damage counter from one of the other Pokemon to that Pokemon. This will knock out that Pokemon. Take your last prize. When the "Decision" screen appears turn off your Game Boy. Start the game again and choose to continue the duel. Go to the "Check" menu, then check play area. You will notice that you have no prizes left. Note: You will have to knock out another Pokemon to win the duel.
