Tips for RBY
1) Press A while walking around the Casino in Celadon City. Every now and then you will find coins. Sometimes, 10 sometimes 100!
2) Don't just level up a lead Pokémon. I made this mistake when I first started (Not that I failed because I began leveling up others too). Try leveling each of your six at an even rate. My theory is if you level up your Pokémon five levels between each gym, you will have very strong little warriors to fight the League without much training.
E.G. LV5 + 10 (Brock's Gym) = 15 + 5 (Misty's Gym) = 20 + 5 (Lt Surge's Gym) = 25 etc. Keep doing that. By the time you get to Giovanni, you will have them strong and level to his. It might be wise to level them about 10 extra levels before battling the League though if you do this.
3) Assess your Gym Leaders before battle. If you do this, you will have a good chance at winning. If you put the best type for the job first, you can win with a type advantage. (I will have a type chart up sometime in the future)
4) It's a good idea to talk to people and check things such as trees. If you talk to people, they may give you advice or even items. In Viridian City, if you check the CUT tree near the coffee guy, you will find a Potion! And the guy near Viridian City (Between VC and Pallet Town) will give you a Potion!
5) Upgrade your Rod. It's a good idea to get all three rods. The rods can hook different Pokémon. The Old Rod only hooks Magikarp. But that isn't such a big loss. At Level 15, they learn Tackle, and at Level 20, they evolve into Gyarados! The Good Rod hooks better Pokémon such as Goldeen and Seaking. Still you need the Super Rod which hooks pretty much the same Pokčmon but at higher levels.
6) Catch BOTH Snorlax. Yes there are TWO level 30 Snorlax in the game. If you catch both than you have a good lineup. Snorlax are quite strong. Considered 00bers I think. But yes they are great and can learn many TMs.
7) If you are going to cheat, make sure you know the consequences.
Yes we know of three main glitches in RBY.
Glitch City: This does not affect your game too much. Fly to get out of it.
Mew Glitch: This one does not stuff up the games to my knowledge.
MissingNo: This is the most affective glitch. Sure it multiplies your items a heap. But there are several side-affects.
These will most likely stuff up your game but may not. Be careful with these cheating devices.
8) Basic Battle Tips:
Status Changes: If you change your opponent's status, this can turn a bad battle good.
Poison: Will slowly drain health.
Sleep: This will make your opponent sleep for a small period of time
Paralysis: A good trick. This keeps them paralyzed for the entire battle and they may not move
Burn: Like poison this drains health.
Freeze: This keeps them frozen for ages giving you a tonne of time to attack. They cannot attack while they are frozen.
Confusion: This makes the opponent attack themselves (sometimes). A good tactic!
Stat Lowering: A good way of annoying the opponent
Accuracy: Lowering Acccuracy gives your opponent less of hitting you
Attack: Lowering Physical Damage is the main damage thing in the game
Special: Lowering Special Attacks will help if opponent has type advantage.
Defense: Lowering opponents defense will give you a good chance to do more damage.
Speed: Lowering Speed will give them less chance to attack first.
I think I covered all of the stats.
Damage: Damaging the opponent is key to any battle. The first to get the others health to '0' wins!
Special Attacks: These aren't right up Physical Attacks. These are mostly done from a distance which is good in battle type advantages.
Physical Attacks: The in your face attacks. These may not work as well as Special.
9) Item Finder DOES help. After you catch 30 Different Pokémon, go to east of Vermilion City, and go to the top of the lookout. Oak's Aide will give you an Item Finder for your efforts. If you are looking for items such as Rare Candies and you can't find any more of them in Item Balls, try using Item Finder. Item Finder affects the entire screen that's showing. If you move up so there is one more space. It will have a different affect.
An example is in Underground Path. Use Item Finder to find an item. If you move five spaces up or down, this changes the screen, therefore, you may find different items *Hopes it wasn't too confusing*. Once you have got an item in trace, push A until you find it!
10) Having trouble training your Pokémon? Get an EXP Share. At the top of the lookout west of Fuchsia City and talk to Oak's Aide. If you have 50 different Pokémon, he'll give you an EXP Share. The EXP Share divides the EXP from the Pokémon beaten and distributes to Pokémon equally. Plus, the lead Pokémon earns its normal EXP!
11) Easy Pokémon. To get some Pokémon easily, get coins from the Casino. Some Pokémon you can only get from the Casino.
~List Coming Soon~
12) Think before you ink! XD In other words, think before teaching moves to Pokémon. You can only learn up to four moves. And any moves you forget may not be able to be relearnt.
Some TMs can only be used once because they are the only ones in the game.
If you use a HM, it cannot be replaced. However, thanks to GSC this problem can now be fixed. Trading a Pokémon to GSC is good because of the Move Tutor.
Sometimes you need correct movesets. Check the movesets section of this forum to get a good moveset.
13) Evolving can be good, yet, sometimes it isn't. Pokémon that evolve by an evolution stone are mainly what this is aimed at. Some Pokémon learn better moves before evolving.
Take Growlithe for example. If it doesn't evolve before learning all moves, it can learn Ember, Leer, Take Down, Agility and Flamethrower. Yet, if you evolve it straight away, it will only know Roar, Ember, Leer and Takedown.
Yet, sometimes evolution IS needed. Take Eevee for example, unless it evolves early, it will only know crud moves. Keep this in mind.
14) Don't start the game with your friend's LV70 Mewtwo (Yes I got that title from Prima's Strategy Guide). If you start off the game with that Mewtwo, it will not obey. It may attack like once every five turns! Chances are it will go to sleep! You need badges. These are the badges that affect levels that make your Pokémon obey.
Cerulean City - Cascade Badge = LV30. This means you could trade a level 25 Ivysaur from your friend and have it obey.
Celadon City - Rainbow Badge = LV50. This means you could trade over a level 42 Jynx from your friend and have it obey.
Saffron City - Marsh Badge = LV70. This means you could trade over a level 66 Mew from your friend and have it obey.
Viridian City - Earth Badge = All Pokémon. This means you can actually trade the Mewtwo over and use it (You could for Marsh Badge too). All Pokémon at any level will obey with this badge.
15) Happiness is the best thing. In Yellow, you must make Pikachu happy in order to get Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbsaur. One sly and sleazy way, is to use a Potion when Pikachu is at full health. That was a small glitch.
16) Why go to all the effort at the Safari Zone? At the Safari Zone, some Pokémon are a pain in the butt. Kangaskhan being the most annoying. There are two ways to get the Kangaroo without going to the Safari Zone. Trade from GSC OR do the Missingno code. Your choice!
17) Master Ball. Yes, everyone knows if you do the Missingno code you can easily duplicate it. OR you could save it and use it on Mewtwo in the Unknown Dungeon.
18) Item ball or Electrode? In RBY, Voltorb/Electrode are very sinister and disguise themselves as item balls. So be careful in case you get ZAPPED!
19) Safari Zone fenced Pokémon and Bill's House. If you are new to the Pokémon World just remember, seeing adds data to the Poké Dex. So take a look at Bill's favourite Pokémon and look at the ones caged in the Safari Zone, and you'll find that it adds pages to the dex. Plus, if you can catch those Pokémon in the wild, it will add data to the area, therefore allowing you to find them!
20) The irratating Eevee Factor. Did you go to Celadon City and find Eevee and say "Now what should I evolve it into?". Now unless you trade it to GSC for the duplicating trick, there's really only one Eevee. The only other way, I believe, is getting lucky through MissingNo cheat. Again, unlikely.
Anyways, here are a few things to consider:
Weight: 64 lbs
Data: Lives close to water. Its long tail is ridged with a fin that is often mistaken for a memaid's.
----- Sand Attack
LV27 Quick Attack
LV31 Water Gun
LV37 Tail Whip
LV42 Acid Armour
LV54 Hydro Pump
TMs: 06, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 20, 31, 32, 33, 34, 39, 40, 44, 50
Weight: 54 lbs
Data: The Jolteon accumulates negative ions in the atmosphere to blast out 10,000-volt lightning bolts.
----- Sand Attack
LV27 Quick Attack
LV37 Tail Whip
LV42 Double Kick
LV48 Pin Missile
TMs: 06, 08, 09, 10, 15, 20, 24, 25, 31, 32, 33, 34, 39, 40, 44, 45, 50
Weight: 55 lbs
Data: When storing thermal energy in its body, the Flareon's temperature can soar to over 1,600 degrees.
----- Sand Attack
LV27 Quick Attack
LV37 Tail Whip
LV44 Fire Spin
LV54 Flame Thrower
TMs: 06, 08, 09, 10, 15, 20, 31, 32, 33, 34, 38, 39, 40, 44, 50
So think if that's the Pokémon you want.
21) Name Rater Information. The Name Rater located in Lavender Town changes your Pokémon's name. However, there are a few things you need to know:
The name rater does NOT change the names of traded Pokémon.
He has no PC in his house, therefore if you want to change more than 6 names, you MUST go to the Pokémon Center.
Those two are important to remember.
22) TMs at Celadon:
RBY doesn't seem to supply information about TMs at Celadon City Store. So you must by them for yourself. I have a list that may help:
TM 01: Mega Punch (A personal favourite of mine: Also found at Mt. Moon)
TM 02: Razor Wind (Takes to turns to charge, keep in mind: Also found at Silph Co.)
TM 05: Mega Kick (Not too accurate: Also found at Victory Road)
TM 07: Horn Drill (OH-KO: Also found at Celadon Team Rocket Hideout)
TM 09: Take Down (Recoil Damage after hit: Also found at Silph Co.)
TM 17: Submission (Recoil Damage after hit: Also found at Victory Road)
TM 32: Double Team (Raises evasivness: Also found at Safari Zone)
TM 33: Reflect (Halves physical attack damage: Also found at Power Plant)
TM 37: Egg Bomb (Normal Attack: Also found at Safari Zone)
