Pokemon Ruby

Where do you get the wish tag?

Games Guru: I have never found a Wish Tag. I have checked the best sources and they all say that the Wish Tag does not exist.

I was wondering if you know how to get to Sootopolis City.

Games Guru: Head south from Mossdeep Island along route 127. Once you clear the water cliffs, head left to Route 126. You will quickly come to an island. Sootopolis is inside that island, but you enter through an underwater cave.

What trendy phrase at Deford City is needed for catching Febass? And could you tell me at least one tile where it can be found? Thank you.

Games Guru: I have to admit I have never encountered Febass in Pokemon Ruby. Are you sure it is there?

How I can get the legendaries to show the walkthroughs?

Games Guru: I do not understand. I must be missing something on this one.

What is the best way to catch Pokemon like Rayquaza? I hear all these bogus stories like press this button when you throw it and it works 97% of the time, etc. I’m finding it very hard to catch Rayquaza since I don’t have a masterball (not sure where to get it). I use ultra balls, timer balls and pokeballs. Can you help?

Games Guru: First of all, allow me to congratulate you on getting to Rayquaza–that bike ride up to the roof was tough! Now, to Rayquaza. Like you, I have heard people say to use these pokeballs in this order or that order. I have read that this ball or that ball works best. In my experience, with the exception of the Master Ball, there is only one in the game, and it is in Team Aqua/Magma’s secret base. It’s all a matter of luck. I have caught legendary Pokemon with plain old normal pokeballs after wasting dozens of fancy ones.

Save your game before approaching Rayquaza, then wear it down, paralyze it and use every last pokeball you have got. If that does not work, DO NOT SAVE! Simply turn off your game, turn it back on and try again. Sooner or later, you are bound to catch your monster. Just be sure you have a good supply of pokeballs — dozens and dozens of them.

When you said to watch TV after beating the Elite 4 and Mom would ask a colorful question, did you have to beat the Elite 4 for a first time in the game or any time?

Games Guru: I hate to do this to you, but you need to refresh my memory. What are you trying to accomplish? I recall advising a reader to speak to “Mom” after beating the Elite 4 — I think it was to see a newscast about the victory and becoming the new champ, but, alas, I am getting old and need a reminder every now and then.

Can you multiply Pokemon? If so, how?

Games Guru: There is a Pokemon breeding center just west of Mauville. Go have a look.

    I am not 3Ddude but I think I can help. You can only catch Rayquaza after you beat the elite four. It is on the north of route 131 in the Sky Pillar. Here is a tip, not only do you need the mach bike to get across the cracks but you need to reach the next staircase in one fluid motion meaning you can not stop for you need the acceleration on some floors. You will find it on the top floor at level 70, I used my masterball on it for it is the hardest pokemon to catch besides maybe latios. Hope this helps.

  2. to 3Ddude

    how do yu get raquaza

  3. To How?,

    Yeah right, after a “few tunrs” the pokemon pops right out if you use a timer ball. Dont use timer balls untill the last minute or they wont work. And they can be bought in Rustboro city. Oh and never throw the same pokeball twice in a row so I wouldnt reccommend using only ultra balls either, I would use every kind of ball possible.

  4. HEy everybody if you say get 20 or 10 ULTRA balls to catch a legendary pokemon then you are stupid. u just need 1 TIMERBALL for every pokemon except for pokemon that can run just have to wait a few turns and the pokemon is caught. if u want to know where to get a t-ball just ask me.Hope this helps you to catch a legendary that cant run away. 😀

  8. To tag,

    After you beat the elite four you will see a tv broadcast that a blue bird pokemon is on the loose. You will then run into it randomly on any route. After you find him the first time you can track it down by using your area feature on your pokedex.

    i know another hacked game. Yong-Quise version, where your starter can be any level up to 3000 when you get it and it has built- in cheats and you talk to people to unlock them. it also can migrate to pearl/ diamond. I did some research about it and it is the old version of action replay that you actually play and i heard it does not mess up your game if you do any of the cheats. so overall it is very hard to find because they are not made anymore. i dont have it but i know 2 people that do.

  15. how do u hack

  16. to pkmnplayer. Where Did You Get Mew? also do you know how to get jirachi? I need Them. P.S. I love Mew

  17. You can find shinies on Ruby

  18. To mamas,

    You will randomly run into them but your odds of finding one are 1 in 8,192. I am not sure if you will find shining pokemon in ruby version though, it might only work in second generation games.

  19. how do you get shiny pokemon

  20. I just thought it was interesting I didn’t say I supported people messing with pokemon games.

  21. Oooh, fake/hacked games.

    Yeah, chaos black is apparently a hack of ruby that can’t be beaten (cause the “reprogrammers” (my fancy name for hackers) didn’t finish it) and uses characters from Sonic as pokemon. From the videos I’ve watched of pokemon Naranja (pokemon purple), it seems to be completely re-created, instead of based on an existing game. Sounds like so much fun…

  22. To JJG,

    That is interesting. I never new there were so many rip off versions. Do you know if they are only for the DS or do they have some for the Game Boy Advance for old time people like me?

  23. People say pokemon quartz (another phony) is better and im acually trying to convert the file so I can play it in my visual player advance on my computer.

    I have come to find outthat there are tons of fake games like pokemon orange, shiny gold, shiny sliver, and like three more that I forget

  24. it is asome

  25. Thanks JJG.
