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 hate to ruin your hopes, but you CAN’T get mew in ruby without using cheats, or going to a nintendo event. there is an unconfirmed fire red/leaf green glitch to get it.

  2. how do u catch sceptile in ruby

  3. I’m pretty sure there are two ways to get a master ball.The first way is to find it in the base,and the second is a bit harder.You go to lillycove,go to the store,save the game[optionlal],talk to the lady on the right on the first floor,get a ticket,if you dont get first gift,turn off game and change all your guys,and o over until you get the number 1 prize.

  4. To EAL11,

    You have to go to a Nintendo event to get the tickets that take you to them. Or you can buy an action replay to get them with cheats.

  5. To Hubabuba,

    This sounds like a “he said she said” thing. Ok, you get Jirachi from pokemon colosseum and deoxys from an action replay or from going to a Nintendo event. Your friends cousin probably got it that way. How about when you get all 200, then you try it. If it works than give me the stats, level, and condition of it and then I might beleive you. Untill then I think 10 years of pokemon knowledege tops a friends cousin.

  6. Oops! I made a typo error! I put FEEBL insted of FEEBAS!

  7. OK. I have been hearing all this nonsence about getting Jirachi, Deoxes, and all of that.

    First of all, you need to beat the Elite 4, + catch the whole Hoen Pokedex. (I AM SOO CLOSE! I ONLY NEED FEEBAL AND MILOTIC! I will hopefully get soon…) anywase, get the Hoen Pokedex, then go to the space station. Talk to the scientist looking out the window, and he tell you a number. 56 or heigher, you can go up to space and get Dioxes. In order to get 100, which means Jirachi, you need to catch to whole National Pokedex.

    Also for you Mewtwo fans, you can only get it from Firered, or Leafgreen.

    TO: Froggy 15

    The Jirachi thing is NOT a myth. My friend’s cousain caught it + Deoxes.

    Hope this helped moste of you out! 🙂

  8. how do i get mew and deoxys

  9. To mak,

    True, you can go to sky pilliar, but not to catch jirachi. That whole go to space thing or 100 launch thing is a myth. You will find rayquaza on top of sky pilliar though.

  10. to get into space i have heard you need to beat the elite 4 and the champ 1 time then go to the space center talk to a scientist and if he says succsefull launch number 56 or higher he will ask if you want to go into space there you will find deoxys and if he says 100 or higher he will still ask but this time you will find jiirachi he is rarer and harder to catchand to get to the sky piller go to picifidlog town then go east will find a small entranc where you will go ashore then you will enter the sky piller (p.s it is very diffucult frustating and anoyying to get to the top but once you catch him its well worth it!

  11. to hi,

    no not on the game Mewtwo had someone else use his name on pourpose or by accident i don’t kno. 😕 😕 😕

    This is the game where I caught a Groudon that knows Thunderbolt

    (I am Tomare!, but only with non Pokemon Games now, see Guitar Hero, Mario, etc…)

  13. To Spencer121,

    He his in a house to the left of the pokemon center in Slateport City.

  14. To hi,

    What do you mean by fake mewtwo? Do you mean mewthree or do you mean how do you use cheat to get mewtwo?

  15. To awsome,

    You either get it from pokemon stadium (I think…), by using an action replay, or by going to a Nintendo event.

  16. Where do you find the name rater

  17. how do you see fake mewtwo

  18. how do i get jirachai

  19. To bre3,

    I hope I helped but if you are still stuck feel free to ask for more details.

  20. Oh great not again.

    the fake mewtwo has come back!

    the comment with the fake mewtwo in it is the one where there is the question about how to get to mossdeep city and that is not true because one of the gyms is there and i beat the elite four already.

    i can’t believe that you did it twice fake mewtwo. 👿 👿 👿 👿

  21. I have Mew!

  22. im stuck to mewtwo

  23. To mewtwo,

    Um… well then catch a pokemon that learns surf and surf there? Any water pokemon will do. If that is not what you mean please reword your question.

  24. To Anonymous,

    Surf east of Lilycove. If you are blocked go to the top of Mt. Pyre first then battle team magma, then you can surf to Mossdeep.

  25. To bre3,

    You surf from Lilycove to Mossdeep, get dive from steven, dive to Sootpolis, get waterfall where you battle groudon, then use waterfall to get to Ever Grande. If you get stuck be more specific about where you are and which city you want to go to. The wirless adaptor comes with fire red or leaf green, it plugs into the top. Take out the asmural and put in the milotic, oh and get your levels a little more even. DO NOT USE YOUR MASTERBALL ON GROUDON! It is so easy to catch compared to rayquaza or latios.
