Pokemon Soulsilver

Hey, Games Guru, Right now I’m trying to beat the Elite 4. In my party I have Feraligatr, Lugia, Beedrill, Flaafy, Raticate and Krabby. Can you give me some advice?

Games Guru: This is a lengthy process, as I’m sure you know. Here’s Part 1 on a three-part series on the beating the Elite Four.

I heard from someone that you can catch Ho-oh on soul silver. Is this true, and if yes, how? Thanks.

Games Guru: Defeat the Elite Four. Then, you’ll be able to go to the Kanto region in Pewter City. The old man there will let you have a rainbow wing. Take that because it will let you find Ho-oh in Ecruteak City. He’s at the top of the Bell Tower over there. Try using the master ball on him.

How do you wake up the snorlax blocking diglets cave? I know you need a expn card, but where do you get it? Then how do I get to Mount Silver? The policeman won’t let me through. One last thing: How do you get past the construction men blocking the path to Cinnbar Island? Thank you for answering my questions!

Games Guru: Since Pokemon questions require really detailed answers, I’ll just help you wake the snorlax. You need the updated radio in Lavender Town. The manager of Lavender Town will give you the upgrade after a mission. When you go back to the snorlax, you need to have the radio on the channel that plays the Poke Flute music. But you have to drag the little dot out of the radio (the dot is the radio channel). Drag it to the star at the top of the circle on your screen. Exit the radio and talk to the wakened snorlax. But be careful. He’s going to want to fight you.

    How do you get to the top of the lighthouse?I go up the elevator and there is a little gate and I can’t get through.Then I tried to go up the ladders and it is a dead end.How do I get up there??

    • Climb up the ladders ’till you reach the dead end and jump out the window. It leads to a balcony whitch you can climb up to the top. Hope this helps!

  8. I have heard rumors about Deoxys appearing in mt. moon, thursday, midnight. Is it true? Also i completed my Johto dex (aside celebi, and i have a mew) and just so u no, u don’t get anything good.

  9. this is weird… THE BATTLE HALL CHAMPION IN BATTLE HALL SOMETIMES HAS LEGENDS!!! example (regirock,moltres)


  11. Here is a tip on catching Groudon. After you get the red orb, go to the embedded tower. There you will find Groudon. You will need rock climb as well. While you are battling Groudon, put it to sleep. Make sure its hp is at least half way down and use a heavy ball on it. These instructions should work on Kyogre as well.


  13. wut cave do u get lugia in on whirl islands after the kimono girls leave the dance stage.also how do u get evee on it?


  15. U can usually catch Ho-oh in a quick ball. That’s how I did it.

  16. I have three things to ask. One, how do you get past the police guard that blocks the Lavender Town Radio Tower? Two, how do you get the elevator fixed at the Silph Company?Three where do you catch Palkia, Dialga, Girtana, and Arceus? Thank you.

    • To et silph co working again bring a rotom in and walk in the elevator. then goup to recive something far from your dreams! to get arceaus you need an action replay and pokemon diamond,pearl, or platinum. otherwise you need to go to a speical event. for dialga,palkia,and giritina you need to recive it in diamon,pearl,or platinum or take the toy’s or us arceaus to the ruins of alph and go to the little house on the south east side. for the police officer I have still trying to crack its code.

  17. Do you know where team rocket is? I’ve looking all over for them. And just to let you know, I have beaten Red.

    im trying to get all three kanto startes by storing one in my pokewalker then starting a new game and store another one in my other pokewalker then start another new game but this time transfer the other two from the pokewalkers think that will work please help

    • Infernape200 // August 29, 2010 at 5:09 pm // Reply

      Usually the doesnt work, restarting your game with a pokemon in the pokewalker might have different effects: first, mess up your game second, leave pokemon stuck in pokewalker, or even delete the pokemon inside… this is because when the game is restarted the pokewalker settings and areas are probably restarted 2.

      • world-traveling Pokemon Master // December 4, 2010 at 2:38 pm //

        yeah it won’t work because the ID number is always different and the pokemon will indeed be deleted. Good plan though 🙂
