Pokemon Crystal Version

Can you only get Raikou and Entei after beating the elite four? And where would you find them if you can get them before the Pokemon league (elite-four)?

Games Guru: You will run into Raikou and Entei early on, in a Ecruteak City, but they leave before you can catch them. After that, you can track them down on your Pokedex.

Is Mewtwo in the game?

Games Guru: Mewtwo is number 150 on the Pokedex, so yes, he is indeed in there.

I’m in Mt. Silver. I meet with Red. I save the game before I battle him. I’ve been trying to win against him, but I keep losing!! How do I win?

Games Guru: Bad news: There is no simple answer for beating Red. His Pokemon are Pikachu, Snorlax, Espeon, Charizard, Venusaur and Blastoise. If you are coming in with a powerful Golem or Onyx, hoping to pound down his Pikachu, you will get a face full of Venusaur and Bloastoise. He will cook your electrics, shock and plant your waters, and dark your psychics. So what do you do? You return the favor. Build up your elite team so you can take damage and deal out some harm, then send out a fire Pokemon when he gives you Venusaur and Snorlax. Send out a Pokemon with some earthquaking ability to meet his Pikachu. You get the drift. If you are going to beat Red, you will beat him with basics—strong Pokemon that can play off his weaknesses.

Where can you get Mew? I found this many times online:

1. Catch all Unown

2. Have letters M-E-W in party

3. Fly to lake of rage

4. Surf up and down till you see him.

I’ve tried this for 6 hours straight and it does not work. Am I doing something wrong, or am I missing something?

Games Guru: As I understand it, Mew is not available in Crystal but can be obtained by trading with someone who has captured it in Red or Blue.

How do I get all 3 legendary pokemon in the game?

Games Guru: I might be showing my ignorance here, but we’re talking about a game that features Articuno, Zapdos, Multres, Lugia, Mew, Mewtwo and Entei, among others. Which pokemon in particular are you looking for?

    i beat red. he is so hard.

  7. pikachu 11 – I’m not Froggy 14, but I’ll try to help you anyway.

    I find the best status to inflict upon pokemon is freeze, but that’s kind of hard to do. So, I recommend using false swipe when his HP is relatively low and throw lots of balls at him.

    Start out the battle with a strong attack (be careful – water or electric might inflict too much damage and kill him), and then inch his HP down. It will take a lot of luck to catch him, but this method works after a while. Oh, and if you were worried about wasting your master ball, you could just copy it by duplicating a pokemon that’s holding it. Good luck with Ho-Oh!

  8. To pikachu 11,

    Well first you obviously have to weaken it but there is one flaw in that plan, it knows recover. So, not only do you need a pokemon that can weaken it to a small amount of health but you also need one that will hurt it without killing it. I recommend paralyzing it because it can not heal from that. Also use a move like flash or sand attack so that its fire blast won’t hit you. Next, when trying to catch it, never throw the same ball twice. I would have as many kinds of pokeballs as possible. Save one kind of ball until you notice that balls that it use to say, “Oh no the pokemon broke free” now say, “Aw it appeared to be caught”. Then throw the one you saved. If it doesn’t catch it keep throwing random pokeballs. Still to this day the funniest thing I have ever encountered on pokemon was catching Ho-oh with a lure ball.

  9. Froggy 14 ,do you know any tips on catching ho -oh without the masterball

  10. To pikachu 11,

    Do you mean where to find him or tips for catchin him? I will be happy to answer either.

  11. To lugialover,

    You will find the silver wing in pewter city. Talk to the old man to the right of the pokemon center and he will give it to you. And do you need help finding lugia or tips for catching him?

  12. How do you catch HO- OH.

  13. where do u get a silver wing????

  14. mew mewtwo mewthree // December 3, 2007 at 12:28 pm // Reply

    i got all 3 dogs, lugia,ho-oh,all and 3 starters

  15. To lugialover,

    You can get mew by using a glitch in pomemon red blue and yellow and for celibie you need a Gs ball, unfortuanitly you can only get a Gs ball in the Japanese version of the game.

  16. green jumping lizards!!!

    how do u get mew and celebi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. To J21,

    You first need to go to the whirl islands. Enter the North east island, go to hte latter that is the farthest up NOT the one with an ultra ball next to it. Go to the only latter possible after that. You will find yourself next to a maxrevive and water. Surf down the waterfall take a left and enter the cave. Surf up and you will find lugia waiting.

  18. I need the Games Guru Guy I need an Explained way to catch Lugia I can’t find the cave that he is in (I have the Silver Wing) PLEASE!!!! can you tell me???

  19. To suicune,

    My ultimante team is Dragonite, Tryanitar, Charizard, Mew, Nidoqueen, and Snorlax. But my ultimate pokemon is my Mewtwo at level 100 that knows fire punch, ice punch, thunder punch, and psychic.

  20. ya you only ran into these but look at what I have feraligatr, red gyrados, suicune dragonite, entei, raikou

  21. To Raven Lavender,

    Thank you for your obvious posts that did not add anything to the answers. Oh and the pokemon you are reffering to that is in crystal is not called misingo but “??????”. And there is glitch city in the game but I think you have to use a game shark that allows you to walk through obstructions.

  22. To This is not only for boys,

    You will find the pokeflute at the radio station in lavender town. Once you return the missing part to the power plant go to the radio tower an they will give you the Expn. Card which allows you to hear the kanto radio stations. If you check the radio program that is the farthest right it plays pokeflute music. Put the radio infront of snrolax and it will battle you.

  23. To ILJ,

    One little problem with your plan, you can not trade pokemon from ruby, sapphire, and emerald, to pokemon crystal. Maybe your thinking about pokemon Diamond?

  24. To JJG,

    Pineco evovles at level 31.
