Pokemon FireRed

When you go to one of the islands of the rainbow pass, there is a steel door with some codes. How can I open it? Also, how do you know the second password for team rocket hide in the rainbow islands?

Games Guru: You get the second password by beating the Rocket member in the cave on Island 4.

Mr. Games Guru, I’ve been trying to get the ruby so I can get to 4 Island. I’ve beaten the Pokemon League in under a week of having the game, so what more do I have to do?

Games Guru: Are you asking what do you need to do to get the ruby? It’s on Island One. If you are asking what is left to do in the game, there is plenty to do. That’s the good news; the bad news is that you can no longer catch ’em all as some of the rarer Pokemon can only be had by attending Nintendo events and downloading them.

I am in Celadon City. I found the rocket’s secret hideout and I have the elevator key. The problem is that I don’t know where the elevator is, and every other important building is blocked by a rocket guy. Please help me.

Games Guru: The elevator is in the lower right-hand area of the floor. If you check second floor, you should be able to board once you have the key.

Who do I talk to to get the password for rocketbase?

Games Guru: We are talking about the underground lair in the game corner, right? Have you looked behind the poster and found the not-so-hidden door? We will assume you have and that you have gone downstairs. If you go to the fourth floor (B4F), you will find a lift key that will enable you to get to any floor. That should get you anywhere you want to go in the Rocket’s lair.

Where do I find the key in the Pokemon mansion?

Games Guru: In the basement, back room to the left.

How do you get to the other side of seaform island cave?

Games Guru: As you explore the cave, you will find an item ball containing the HM Waterfall. Teach this to one of your Pokemon, then ride the waterfall down. That should take you to where you need to go.

How do you get the pre-evolution of quagsire?

Games Guru: Do you mean a wooper? You can find them surfing around Island 4, try using your Good Rod.

Can you trade Pokemon from Silver or Crystal version to FireRed?

Games Guru: If you are using the wireless controller that came with the game, the answer is no. The wireless only works with LeafGreen and FireRed. As I understand it, these games do not recognize the link cable.

I’ve already caught the three legendary birds and Mewtwo, so I was wondering about Raikou, Enfei and Suicune.

Games Guru: If you started with Squirtle, you can find Raikoa. There is an Entei in the game if you started with Bulbasaur. And, if you started with Charmander, Suicune awaits. They are hard to track down. They start moving around the countryside once you defeat the Elite 4.

How do you clone items?

Games Guru: I do not know anything about cloning in this game. Sorry.

After giving ruby & sapphire to Ceilo and beating Elite 4, what should I do? Can you help me please … and tell me about wireless connection?

Games Guru: Ah yes, all of the answers you seek are combined in one. You see, once you have given the Ruby and the Sapphire, you open the wireless, which allows you to trade Pokemon with Pokemon Sapphire and Pokemon Ruby cartridges. It also enables you to connect to Pokemon Coliseum.

I’ve beaten all the trainers and Elite 4. Now I need to find the password for Team Rocket warehouse and the cave with the guy blocking the way, saying strong Pokemon in here.

Games Guru: You need two “secret codes” to open the warehouse. You will find one password on six islands and the other password on seven island.

How do you beat Rocket Warehouse?

Games Guru: I think what you are asking is how do you know which teleportation tiles to step on to go around the Team Rocket base hidden beneath the casino in Celadon City. Is that correct? If so, here goes: Step on the T tile just in the front and that will send you to basement 2. Head left and find your way through the big maze. This will let you out in the lower southern half of the floor where you will find a tile. Step on that tile. This will take you into a sealed area on the first floor of the basement. Grab the stuff and head back the way you came, then find your way back through the maze and teleport back. Find your way back through the maze and take the T tile you skipped before entering the maze. This tile takes you to a maze on the third floor and yet another maze. Find your way through that maze, take the T tile. Make sure to pick up every item and interact with any interactable items. If you have done so, you should be able to go back to the elevators on the first or second floor and ride the elevator up to the fourth for your battle with the boss.

Where do you catch a Rayquaza?

Games Guru: Rayquaza is on the sixth floor of Sky Pillar. Better sharpen your biking skills. Getting to that sixth floor is no easy feat.

When I use the wireless adapter to select mystery gift, I don’t see wonder gift. My friend says if you select the wonder gift, you can have the ticket in the game. The only things I see are wonder cards and news, but it didn’t work when I selected one of them.

Games Guru: Have you gone into a Pokemart and typed “Link Together With All” on the clipboard?

I have strong Pokemon, but I’m in the powerplant fighting Zapdos. I got him almost down to no health but just enough to keep him alive, and I’m not fighting him anymore and I want to catch him. I had 42 ultra balls and 4 great balls, but now I’m down to 14 ultra balls. Is there any other way I can catch zapdos without wasting that many ultra balls?

Games Guru: You know what? There is no sure-fire way to catch Zapdos unless you waste your master ball, and you do not want to do that. I have caught him in this level several times, and I find that it is really a matter of luck. I will say that I have caught him with good old standard Pokeballs generally, but the other sometimes work as well. I have caught him on the fifth try and I have caught him on the fiftieth. What I am saying is: try and try again. Save right before you launch your attack, make sure to paralyze Zaptos, then go to work. If you run out of ultra balls or it is getting too expensive, turn off your game and start again. As long as you saved right before you attacked, the only things it will cost you are your time and your sanity.

Where and how do you get cut?

Games Guru: Speak with the seasick captain of the S.S. Anne.

Got any codes? I need to know quick!

Games Guru: You know, I don’t know if Nintendo has ever put codes in the Pokemon games. As far as I know, everything is based on unlockables that you open only by winning badges and various competitions… oh, and through exploration.

How do you get more than one Master Ball in with a code or something, please?

Games Guru: As far as I know, there is only one Master Ball, the one you are given as a gift. Use it wisely.

How do I get surf?

Games Guru: You receive HMO3, Surf, in a small house in the Safari Zone. All you need to do is enter the house and talk to the guy.

I’m stuck in the ice cave that leads to the eighth level. Please help me out!

Games Guru: Pokemon FireRed is one of those games that never seems to end. You beat the Elite Four and think the game is over only to discover that the islands and many of the best Pokemon are yet to come. And in all of that, you run into the Ice Cave—and more of Team Rocket.

Go into the cave, then surf across to the door. Go through the door and you’ll find patches of ice that crack when you step on them and break if you step on them a second time. The trick here is to plan your path so you never need to step back again. Get to the top of the ice. You will find a ladder up here. Step on the ladder, then back on the ice and you’ll drop down one floor.

Now head down and to the right. This will take you to a ladder and back up. The trick in this area is to target your falls. Your path along the lower floor will be blocked by rocks. If you go up one floor, you’ll be able to move past these barriers and drop back down.

Give it a try. Oh, and be sure to have a water Pokemon with you—one that can swim up waterfalls. (Just a suggestion.)

Where do you go after defeating the Elite Four?

Games Guru: Give the islands a try. Go to Cinnibar and look for Bill and the laboratory.

How do you get in that cave on Cerulean Cave?

Games Guru: Go north and left of Cerulean City and you’ll find a waterway. Surf it down and to the west and you will see a cave.

After you beat the Elite Four, how do you get to island four, five, six and so on?

Games Guru: Once you beat the Elite Four, return to island one, then surf north and enter Moltres Mountain. You will find new enemies to fight and new side quests to take on.

I cannot find the area of the Pokemon Vulpix and Krabby. Can you please tell me which town, route or building they are in?

Games Guru: Vulpix is available only in LeafGreen. To get a Vulpix, you’re going to need to trade with a LeafGreen owner. For a Krabby, try using the Good Rod in the waters around Pallet Town.

    I know that you can get Lugia and Ho-oh in this game by going to a Nintendo event but the others ones without using an action replay there is no way to get them without trading them from another game.

  11. hey do i need to get the national dex to be able to catch entei in pokemon firered

  12. To ace,

    From the start go to the section to your right. Go all the way up and to the left. Make your way through unitll you find and entrance all the way to the left that is going down. It should be your third exit option. Go down and pick up the gold teeth and then enter the building to your left. You will get surf in there and when you return the gold teeth to the Warden in the building with a maibox in the city you will get strength.

  16. To khw9317,

    Go threw digglets cave to go back to Pewter City. Go south,(cut the tree) and you will see a house. Keep going south and you will see a building. Talk to professor oaks aid and if u have caught more than 10 pokemon you get flash. Go back through digglets cave and then go through the underground passage to Ceruluan city. Go east of the town and you will see a tree that you can cut. Go through that route and you will find Rock tunnel. when you make your way through that go west and you will see another underground passage. follow that and you will get to Celodon City. Hopes this helps.

  22. To vivek,

    Well you can really go in any order with Sabrina and Koga so I will tell you where they both are. Sabrina is in Saffron City which you will need to give the guards a bottled water or tea to get in. Koga is in Fuchsia city which you need to go down routes 12-15 to get there, but snorlax is in you way so you will need to wake him up first.
