Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen

I am having big, I mean BIG, trouble catching Deoxy, Jirachi, Mew, Celib, Lugia and Hoho. Please help me!

Games Guru: For Deoxy, Mew and Lugia, you needed to go to a Nintendo event or Pokemon Center at a time when they were offering the Pokemon over wireless. Jirachi can be obtained from the bonus disc that comes with Pokemon Coliseum.

Where do I catch Mew?

Games Guru: Ah, Mew. Mew and Celebi are not in FireRed or LeafGreen. Sorry.

Can I catch any of the starter Pokemon as wild Pokemon, or can I only receive them from Professor Oak?

Games Guru: The only way to collect more than one of the starter Pokemon is to trade for them.

I can’t find any slowpoke. Can you tell me where I can catch it?

Games Guru: They are pretty common if you go fishing for them in LeafGreen. Check around the ice caves.

Where do you find Mewtwo?

Games Guru: Finding Mewtwo is a matter of time and location. Mewtwo is in the back of a cave a bit to the north and west of the town of Cerulean. To get to the cave, head north out of Cerulean and cross the bridge, then go west and hop in the river. The river will lead you to the mouth of the cave.

Before you can enter the cave, however, you will need to beat the Elite Four and more. You will need to explore the islands to the south and help the people on those islands solve a certain computer problem.

Does Venusaur beat the elite four in Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen?

Games Guru: Venusaur is a great Pokemon, but you’re in for some trouble if you try to beat the Elite Four with just one Pokemon. Lance, the fourth member of the Elite Four, specializes in dragon Pokemon. His fire beasts will make short work of a lone Venusaur.

  1. Would a Charizard Lv.70 do good against the elite four? (since my rival has Blastoise,Ican use my Zapdos Lv.51 that knows Thunder to take care of him)

  2. To JmanSonicfan,
    Do you have all 386 pokemon…

    I totally beat everything in this game i even checked the guidebook

  4. To ????????????,
    LOL, you do not have to use the legendary pokemon to beat the elite four, in fact it would be kind of hard to do with just them… I am assuming you mean Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos. If so I would use Zapdos for Lorille, Articuno for Bruno, you don’t really have anything for Agatha, Articuno and Zapdos for Lance, and all of them for your rival.

    I have all legendary bird pokemon but what order do you use them to bet the Elite 4 ?

  6. list of legondarys i have
    I think legondarys are easy to catch…


  7. how do you duplicate

  8. To moneyman,

    You need to go to a Nintendo event to get a special ticket that will take you to an island with Ho-oh and Lugia on it.

  9. To pokemon2000,

    Paralize it, use flash untill it has the lowest accuracy, and use false swipes untill it has only one health.

  10. To Deoxys,

    Do you mean the mystery ticket? You have to go to a Nintendo event to get that, or use a gameshark.

  11. how do i catch HoHo in fire red?

  12. Right now I’m trying to cath Moltres, but I keep on winning accidentally, anyone have any tips?

  13. In firered how can i get mystery events?

  14. To Mew,

    Congrats on finding this easter egg. They placed it in the game for fun because it was a glitch in the original red, blue, and yellow versions. People always thought if you could move the truck mew would be underneath, it was a myth, and still is unfortuanalty. But, I heard if you use strength to move the truck you will find a hidden lava cookie, probably just to get peoples hopes up when they clicked and it actually said something. But for the record, there is nothing cool or exciting that happens here.

  15. I have got to a place in Virndan (or whatever the city’s name is with the port ) with a truck after surfing to the right off the ramp to the ship (where you get cut ). I traded over a pokemon from my Firered with cut without going on the ship Beating up to the 6th badge, but not beat the elite 4, which the person I got the cheat from beat the elite 4 before they did the cheat. Do you beat the elite4 before you do it? Or did I do something wrong? I from the looks of it, it works.(in leafgreen)

  16. To Umbreon Freak,

    It sounds like you all are experts on diamond and pearl so if you could do the emerald, diamond, pearl, and the diamond and pearl, pages we will have them all covered. I can handle the rest, there haven’t been as many questions as there use to be and it takes awhile for them to post sometimes. I will let you all know if I go on vacation or if I ever have to stop doing this.

  17. To Salamence101,

    I would go with Alakazam, it would take to long to get aradactyl. Alakazam is a really strong pokemon, your team sounds like it will be strong.

    Froggy 15,

    Hey, are there any other pages you want me to watch. I’ve got lots of time (except on trips) to anwsere question.

    One thing is Salamance101 and I have almost beaten Pearl so we know a couple things about it.

    We only have to get 3 more to have obtained all the pokémon. We currently have 493 in our internation dex that are obtained.


    :mrgreen: 😈 👿 😆 🙂 🙄

    To Froggy15,

    Well, i was thinking about alakazam and aerodactl. I don’t want to duplicate pokemon from my previous teams so that marks out gengar, raichu and golem.

  20. I am buying chaos black on ebay.

  21. To Salamence101,

    You can get a Raichu, a Golem, an Alakazam, or a Gengar. Those are my suggestions.

    Hmm… I can’t decide of what pokemon i should use next on my team… So far my team is as follows: Butterfree, Blastoise, Nidoking, Flareon, Hitmonlee. Please give me about two or three ideas (yes i know i don’t have a pokemon that can use fly but i don’t really need one).

  23. to darkrainer soooo ibeated all the pokemon games

  24. To Terminator,
