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?

    to anyone that’s listening

    okay, I will try all those tips. I just want to clear things up on my name… I am a boy, if anyone was wondering. My name is from the legendary “dogs”, because they are actually cats, if you’ll notice. Raikou is the easiest to tell, with the claws, long teeth, and stubby nose. Entei has the claws, nose, and teeth. Suicune is the hardest to tell, because of the crystal symbol on it’s head. It has no overly-large teeth, but does have the claws. it has a kind of stubby nose, but no other charecteristics.

    Happy Hunting😀

  6. To JJG/rareKITTYhunter,

    I tried to ask you this yesterday but I don’t think it got through. Would you all mind answering questions on pokemon diamond/pearl/emerald/firered/leafgreen? A few of the games I am rusty on, and I have never played the 4th generation games and probably never will. I have noticed that you all have posted a lot, and I have seen a lot of questions on these forums but not a lot of answers. I am sure you all will enjoy answering questions as much as I do for maybe 1 out of 15 people thank you and that feeling is great. Please consider it. Thanks.

  7. To JJG,

    It is larvitar that you can buy and it cost 8888 coins.

  8. To rareKITTYhunter,

    I tried posting yesterday but I am not sure that I got through. I do not belive that if you catch raiku on one route that you cant catch entie on another, but to be on the safe side I would switch to 42/43. The only reason I like 44 is that it is small so you spen more time in the grass and if you only have 8 badges it is a great place to train.

  9. To rareKITTYhunter/ JJG,

    You both have frequently posted so that is why I am asking your help on pokemon diaomand/pearl/emerald/firered/leafgreen. I have never played diamond or pearl and know nothing about them and I have noticed a lot of questions but no answers on there comment pages. I have played ruby/sapphier but the emerald specefic questions I can not answer. And I am a little rusty on frie red and leaf green especially the islands for I played the game for 2 months and then got bored once I relized you had to get like 500 pokemon most of which you cant catch.

    Many other people and I would appreciate your help. Thanks.

  10. To JJG,

    It is larvitar and it cost 8888 coins.

  11. To rareKITTYhunter,

    The reason I chose route 44 is that it is a small patch of grass that is easily accesible and that entie and raiku frequently appear. Also if you only have eight badges or want to train a weaker pokemon this route has some of the higest level pokemon in the johto region. Also it is really easy to walk in a small little rectangle than some of the big routes like route 45. I am not sure if what route you caught the first one on affects the other one but I would reccomend getting off of that route for a while and then coming back, or if you want to change routes than I would use route 42/43 for they are other comman routes they are on.

  12. Tyrnannatar( Or whatever he’s called) can be bought in the building beside the game corner for 9999 coins.

    To Froggy14

    Yes, I knew you could get Larvitar in Mt. Silver, but I had heard rumours of getting a Tyrannitar there. Anyway, I would like to start this… Thing… called CAQ (commonly asked questions). It would be when I ask a frequently asked question, then someone would answer. I have a question for myself right now, though. I caught my Raikou in Route 44, but I have been trying to catch Entei there for roughly two days, and cannot find it. I was wondering if I caught Raikou somewhere, I couldn’t catch Entei there. Thanks! Heres the CAQ.

    Why is Route 44 the best place to catch Raikou and Entei?

  14. To jirachi,

    Ah… no jirachi had not been discovered yet. Maybe you are thinking about diamond or pearl?

  15. To rareKITTYhunter,

    You can find larvitar in silver cave not tyranitar.

  16. Can you catch jirachi on pokemon crystal

  17. rareKITTYhunter // January 3, 2008 at 7:39 pm // Reply

    I have a way to get Tyrannitar… I’m not sure it’s true, though. I’ve heard it can be found in silver cave, the area just before the area with Red in it. And I did get an egg from my Meganium and my Alakazam… it was a magby egg -.-

    Happy Hunting

  18. To jhjhhj,

    They are Lickatung, oddish, staryu, growlithe, and pickachu.

  19. what are the pokemon that bills grandfather want?

  20. To How?,

    To get a water stone you have to get fisherman tullys number. He is on route 42 on the Mahogany town side. The other way is to go to Bills grandfathers house and show him a lickatung, an oddish, and then a staryu (how appropriate), he will give you an everstone, leafstone and then a waterstone. Staryu can be found at Olive city at night time only by using a super rod,(not at the pier just at the city). And if you are good with pokemon Diamond, Pearl, Firered, Leafgreeen, or Emerald feel free to help there for I have never played Diamond, Pearl, or Emerald and I am a little rusty on Firered/Leafgreen. I appreciate you wanting to help.

  21. to froggy14

    can u just help a few people i want to help to.and where do u find a staru and a waterstone.(i know how to get every stone except for water stone)

  22. To trot,

    On route 42 if you headbut the trees you can find herocross.

  23. To pokemon lover,

    You have to first find them randomly in the wild before you find them on your pokedex.

  24. To Anonymous,

    You can find them before you beat the elite four.

  25. where can i find heracros
