Pokemon (Hints)

Missingno Pokemon:

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 

Pokemon "M":

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". 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.

Unlimited items:

Find the Missingno Pokemon and defeat him. A design will appear in 
your sixth item. Deposit your sixth item individually until it 
totals 99. Then you can divide the items by fifty. If a no more 
room message appears, just withdraw an item and keep depositing the 
sixth item. Check the CPU when this is complete to find two groups 
of 99 of the same item. 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.

To get 99 of any item, first put the item to be multiplied in the 
sixth slot. Now use FLY and go to Viridian City. Talk to the old 
man almost all the way north of the town. When he asks if you are 
in a hurry, say no and watch him catch a weedle. After that, fly 
to Fuchsia city. Make your way south and, when you reach the 
water's edge, use SURF and go to Seafoam Island. After arriving, 
swim up and down the beach until you run into a Pokemon called "M" 
(a glitch like Missingno). Once you see him, kill him or run 
away -- do not catch him! After that, you should have 99 of your 
6th item! Note: You can do this code as many times as you want and 
you can catch "M" another time. Additionally, instead of "M" a 
level 128 Starmie (Red Version) or Snorlax (Blue Version) may 
appear. Note: Obtaining "M" 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.

For unlimited money, place a gold nugget in the sixth item slot 
and get ninety-nine of them. Sell all except one to increase your 
money. Use the remaining gold nugget to repeat this procedure. 

Use the unlimited item trick with "Rare Candy". Once duplicated, 
use the "Rare Candys" on all your Pokemon that are at very low 
levels to quickly increase them. Note: The highest level possible 
is 100.

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.

Old man on roof:

Step to the right of the door at the gym where you get the Volcano 
Badge. You should be on the edge of the water. Use Lapras to surf 
out into the water. Then, come back in and go to the door. The 
game will say that the door is locked. Look on the roof to find an 
old man.

Easy experience:

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 evenly.

Winning money in Celadon City:

Enter Celadon City and get the coin case from the man in the back 
of the diner. Go to the slots and ask for some free coins. You will 
use these to play the slots and win Pokemon prizes. Here is how to 
find the slot machine that pays out the most. When you walk in, 
there are rows of slots. Find the man to the far left that says 
"wins come and go". Below him is a machine that is out of order. 
Play the machine directly beneath it. Do not get frustrated if you 
do not win constantly. If it stops paying out a lot, leave, go 
train your Pokemon, and come back later. Note: This trick works 
more often in the "Blue" version of the game. 

Also try walking around Celadon's Game Corner and repeatedly press 
A to find coins that people have dropped


An Abra is hard to catch, but it is worth it. When your Pokemon are 
weak and you need to get to a Pok�center quickly, press Start and 
choose Pokemon. A list of your Pokemon will appear. If you have 
Abra  with you, choose him and select teleport. Note: You have to 
be  outside first; use an escape rope if needed. It will take you 
directly to the last Pokemon Center visited.

Clone Pokemon:

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.

Other ways to get to a Pok�center: 

Besides teleporting, the following methods may also be used to get 
to a Pok�center. Use Dig when in a cave; Fly (HM05 that lets you 
fly to any desired town; Also try Softboiled that you can only 
teach Chansey. It takes some of Chansey's health to give to another 
Pok�mon, and also restores Chansey's health by half during a battle. 
Flash, used to light up Rock Tunnel and make an opponent's accuracy 
fall. Cut used to cut certain bushes and is used like Scratch in 
battle. Surf, which lets you surf across any body of water and is 
used like the Hydro-Pump in battle.

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. 

Fight Safari Pokemon elsewhere:

This trick allows you to fight Pokemon from one area of the game 
in another area. For example, go to the Safari zone and battle for 
a while. Fight a Taures, then leave the Safari zone. Then, go to 
the island where Articuno is found. Swim up and down the shore, at 
the point where it appears that you are on the ground, but are 
actually swimming in the water. Monsters from the Safari zone will 
\appear here.

Unlimited chances to catch rare Pokemon: 

First ,find a rare Pokemon such as a Mewtwo. Then, immediately 
before entering a battle with it, save the game. Now you can battle 
the Pokemon without worrying about not catching it. If you make a 
mistake and make it faint, stop and shut off the game. Then, turn 
on the game and use the continue option to restart just before the 

Unlimited time for Safari Zone (Water Pokemon only):

This trick allows an unlimited amount of time in the Safari zone to 
catch Water Pokemon. Obtain a good or super rod. Next, go to the 
Safari zone and find some water. Then, go into inventory and use 
the rod to start fishing. If a "Not even a nibble" message appears, 
press A, then quickly press Start. If you got into a fight, check 
the Pokemon out. If it is one you do not have, catch it then quickly 
press Start after the battle. Return to the inventory and fish 
again. If you already have this Pokemon, run from it, then quickly 
press Start and begin fishing again. This will help you catch some 
good Water Pokemon with plenty of time.

Quick Safari Zone captures:

Go to the Safari Zone and use up your time in the different areas. 
Once the PA removes you from the hunt, fly to Cinnabar Island and 
surf half on land and in the water on the side facing Seafoam 
Island. In a short amount of time, you will be able to capture all 
of the Pokemon from Safari Zone.

Fish forever:

In the Safari Zone, the 500 units that are allocated when entering 
are based on number of steps, not time, spent. You can fish forever 
in the park if you go to water and not move the entire time that 
you are fishing. 

Better chance to capture Pokemon:

When you throw a Poke-ball hold A as it closes on the Pokemon. The 
Poke-ball will shut tighter, making it easier to catch the Pokemon.

When using any kind of Poke-ball (except the Master Ball), enter a 
battle and prepare to throw it at a Pokemon. As soon as it appears, 
hold Up + B. The Ball will become a Master Ball and catch the 
Pokemon. Note: This trick requires precise timing. 

Catch Pokemon at level 15:

Press Start, A, B (requires precise timing) to catch a Pokemon at 
level 15 with the Poke-ball. 

Harder hitting attacks:

Hold A while attacking to do more damage.

Rare bird Pokemon locations:

Moltres (Victory Road), Articuno (Sea Foam Isle), Zapdos (Abandoned 
power plant).

Get all three beginning monsters at Professor Oak's lab:

Note: Another Game Boy with the game and a link cable are required 
for this trick. Transfer your Pokemon to the other Game Boy. Begin a 
new game on the original Game Boy and get a monster that was not 
collected in the first game and transfer it to the other Game Boy. 
Repeat this step again, then transfer the monsters back to the 
original Game Boy. This allows your game to have the three starting 
Pokemon (Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle) plus any others that 
were already captured.

Getting level 100 and over Pokemon: 

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. In addition to the Missingno Pokemon, regular 
Pokemon over level100 will be encountered. Note: After any Pokemon 
over level 100 gains any experience points, it will drop to level 

You can raise the Pokemon with rare candies up to level 255. After 
that, they return to level 0. Note: The Pokemon available may vary 
from cartridge to cartridge. 


Go to Fuschia and surf until reaching Sea Foam Island. Surf up and 
down until M Pokemon appears. Catch it, nickname it, and use one rare 
candy on it to evolve it into Kangaskhan. 

The following steps can also be used to easily get a Kangaskhan on 
the Red version of the game, and may also work in the Blue version. 
Talk to the old man in Viridian City. Reply "No" when he asks you 
the question. Watch him catch the Weedle. Fly to Cinnabar Island and 
surf to the east part of the island. Make sure you do not go on any 
grassy area. Keep surfing until a wild M' appears; it looks exactly 
like MissingNo. Capture him, then run from battle because it will 
act as if you did not catch him. He would always be at level 0. 
Then, give him a Rare Candy or make it at least gain a level. When 
he gains a level, he will start evolving.


To get Mewto, the rarest of all Pokemon (#150), defeat Pokemon 
League, and enter the cave in Cerulean city. Mewto is located deep 
within the cave.

Hitmonchan and Hitmochan (Game Boy emulators):

Save the game before you can choose those Pokemon. Select one and 
trade it to a friend. Then load and continue from the saved game, 
select the other choice and have your friend trade back the first 
selection. You should now have both Hitmonchan and Hitmochan.

All Pokemon (Game Boy emulators):
Have any Pok�mon saved game inside the "battery" folder (e.g. 
PokeRed.sav). Rename the saved file to the opposite version (e.g. 
PokeBlue.sav). Run the emulator and catch all the blue version 
Pokemon. Rename the saved file to the original name (e.g. 
PokeRed.sav). You should now have the Pokemon from the other 
version of the game.

Chrona Myuu (Japanese version):

Myuu can evolve into Chrona Myuu. Go to the Seafoam Islands and use 
the Itemfinder to locate the Mist Stone. There is only one, and is 
very difficult to find. 

Getting Mew (Japanese version):

Collect all 150 Pokemon. There is a man in Celadon city in the 
building where Eevee was found that gives you a very special 
Pokemon. He is located by taking the path that leads behind the 
buildings at the farthest north point of the city. There will be a 
secret door in the building that is off set from the row. Climb the 
stairs to find a group of people working on computers, when the 
building is entered from the front. Talk to the man that is not 
working on a computer to collect Mew.

Go to Shion Town and change your Koiking's nickname to "Mew". 
Highlight the thirteenth tool on the tool screen and press 
Select(8). Attempt to change your Koiking's nickname again to any 
name. The monster will flash, but the name will remain the same. 
Mew will now be available. 

Go to Cerulean Cave to catch Mew and Mewtwo.

All Pokemon (Japanese version):

Note: This code requires two Game Boys, a link cable, and the red 
and blue versions of the game. Begin game play and find your first 
monster. Locate the Charmanders field and capture one of them. 
Link both Game Boys and rapidly and repeatedly use the "Trade" 
option. All 150 monsters should now be available. 

Raise your Pokemon to level 100 (Japanese version):

Go to the seventh item in "Tools" and press Select. Get into a 
fight, then press Select on the attack you dislike to change it. 
Note: The monster must have all four attack spaces filled. Win the 
fight. Your monster will become level 100 and will enter the next 
stage of its life, if available.
