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.

  1. To ninja,

    You have to trade holding a dragon scale. Ho-oh is not in this game and the only way to get it is to use an action replay or go to a Nintendo event. You can find Snorunt in The Shoal Cave but only in a small room that is all ice that you can find during low tide.

  2. how do you get Kingdra? I got a seadra LV 63! How do you catch Ho-oh? How do you get the bottom evolushon of Glaile


    After you beat the elite four, surf north on route 131 and you will now find a small opeing that lets you get to sky pillar. Bring a Mach Bike, and try not to use your masterball, I did and I am getting really mad at Latios because I foolishly used it on rayquaza.



  6. To Hubabuba,

    You can find and buy action replays for GBA online.

  7. To ninja,

    In ruby you pretty much can just sell it.

  8. Hi! I have a queistion this time, not an answer. I heard roumers that you can get an action replay for the Game Boy Advance SP. Is it true, and where can I get one?

    :0 :0 :0

  9. To froggy15,

    No. Seriously. That’s how to get them. If you don’t beleive me, catch all the pokemon for the Hoen reigen, and test it for your self. I AM 98% SURE. The other 2% is which pokemon you get first in space. Jirachi or Deoxes. I think that you get Deoxes first. My friend’s cousin didn’t get them from any special event or anything, although you can. Sad thing is, is that his Game Boy got run over by a car, with his Ruby in it, so I don’t have any proof. By the way, it’s not a “he said she said” thing! Seriously! Though I see why you are suspishious. (Didn’t spell that right.) 🙂

And yes i know i don’t have Raikou, i am in the process of playing through firered version a third time so i can get it. :mrgreen:

    You have to choose treeko as your starter. If you didn’t, by another version and trade it over.

  17. who knows how to get sceptile in ruby?

  18. To eianbb5,

    You will find it in a small room in meteor falls, the room is almost all water and has the tm for dragon claw.

  19. To sceptile master 513 ,

    You have to have the right pokemon, in the right slot, on the right day and talk to the old man in Pacifidlog town. It is diffrent every day and for every game so I can not tell you which one you need. But why bother, there is nothing interesting there.

    to be quite clear, unless you use cheats, the only pokemon you can get in ruby are the ones in the nintendo walkthrough book, in the ways that they describe
