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?

  2. To S-Griffin(AKA How?),

    When you have two game boy colors you can hold the black rectangles on the top near each other and select mystery gift. What it will give you is rare items including things like fire stones, PP ups, and rare dolls for you room like a surfing pikachu. Those are rare though, most of the time it is items like berrys or mail. As the name says I am 14 but I am turning 15 this month.

  3. To 546545546546554654,

    You can trade it from the Jappanese version but the only problem is not only would you have to buy a Jappanese version, but you would have to play not knowing how to read Jappanese. That could present some challenges.

  5. To stupidbob2,

    There is no badge called Steel badge but I am going to assume you are asking about the Mineral Badge for that gym leader has steel pokemon. If I am wrong tell me how many badges you have and I can correct my answer. If you only have 4 badges you need to go to Cianwood City. Surf on the far left wall thats starts on Route 40 and eventually you will get there. Before you do this though make sure you have HM04 Strength which you can get at a resturant to the left of the pokemart in Olivine City. Now back to Cianwood City. The first step is beating the gym leader. Once this is done talk to his wife (the woman out side of the gym) and she will give you HM02 Fly. Before you leave though you need to talk to a man in the house all the way to the south of the island and he will give you the secret potion if you have already talked to Jasmine at the top of the Olivine Lighthouse. Finally, fly back to Olivine City and go back up to Jasmine, give her the potion and she will then be availble to battle in her gym. Hope this helps.

    How do you get the GS ball on the US Version of Pokemon crystal without a gameshark?

  7. where do i find the steel badg on crystal version and how to get it please help me and my friend on gold real need help we can not do anything without it

  8. To ren,

    It is a game but it is a fan game that was not authorized by Nintendo. So in other words it’s a bootlegged version.

  9. To Bonechene,

    Your problem with Ho-oh is the ultra ball part. 300 of any kind of ball is not as effective as 5 of every kind of poke ball. I too weekend Ho-oh health and paralyzed it and I had no problem catching it. It probably took me 30- 40 poke balls. But the thing was they were not all one kind, I would throw ultra ball, great ball, poke ball, fast ball, heavy ball, lure ball, level ball, love ball, moon ball, and repeat. I caught him with a lure ball on the third round. Without a cheat you can not get a GS ball on the English version of the game, it is only obtainable threw the Japanese version.

  10. is there a pokemon game called naranja version

  11. Yeah someone said to get Celebi in Crystal you need to trade The 3 legendary birds from Red/Blue/Yellow then do other stuff for a GS ball.

  12. Also I remember when I had my silver version long ago, Ho-oh was IMPOSSIBLE to catch without a masterball, I acually used over 300 ultraballs, even saved before fight and everytime I had him weakened to red HP and paralyzed, over 300 ultraballs, actually I should say 1000 ultra balls because I tried multiple times then gave up and used my Master Ball.

    to rareKITTYhunter

    u CAN get entei and raiku in the same place.i think i expereinced this twice.or it was something else and i didnt find them in the same place.but im pretty sure i did and caught both of them with master balls.(i hope this comment wont get deleted)

    to everybody

    in case u dont know wat AKA means, i used to be How?

  14. To doomdog 68,

    I have heard of many pokemon bootleg games but none called shint gold. There is a bootleg version of fire red called shiny gold that plays on the PC, maybe thats what you meant.

  15. Is pokmeon shint gold real????

  16. To pikagago,

    Your going to laugh when you hear this. The Jappenes games are in Jappenese and the American are in English. So if you want to get a GS ball your going to have to just figure out what the symbols mean. Good luck with that.

  17. i need a Entei

  18. how will you know if your crsytal version is a japanese or american version?

  19. rareKITTYhunter // January 22, 2008 at 9:50 pm // Reply

    If anyone is seriously serious about catching Entei or Raikou, then listen up: you CANNOT find Raikou or Entei in the same place, so if you catch one, go to route 42, most western area. there is a patch of grass there, so just go along that and eventuall you will find it

    Happy Hunting!😀

  20. To udoy,

    To elaborate on what JJG said, to get Ho-Oh you must also have the rainbow wing which you will win recive form the wise trio in the Tin Tower after you beat the elite four and then after you catch all three “dogs/cats” you can catch Ho-Oh. For lugia you talk to the man to the right of the pokemon center in pewter city and you will recive the SILVER wing (not rainbow). You then go to the whirl islands (the North East one is the quickest way to get to Lugia).

  21. To Udoy

    Yes, you can catch them both. For Ho-Ho you will need to catch/defeat Entai, Suicune, and Raikou and then stains leading to the top of the tower where you last see Suicune appear.

    For Lugia you’ll need to beat the elite four and be in Hanto (Whatever the secound place is called) and go to the town where Brock is and talk to the old man standing outside and he will give the Rainbow Wing (I think thats what it is called) then you go back to Johto and go you Whirlwind Islands (The islands beside the place where you beath the fighting gym leader) and I think the easist way to get there is through the top island but its been a while.

    P.S. Lugia will be at lvl 60 so be prepared.

    P.S.S I don’t remember what level you find H0-ho at?

  22. can you catch lugia and ho-oh in this game?

  23. To Grimaldo,

    Yes you find them in crystal but you may be having some problems. First off have you been to Burned tower and and watch the legendary pokemon flee? Next are you searching in the Johto region? If you have said yes to both than you just havent been patiecent enough, try searching on route 44 in the patch of grass in the middle, if you only have 8 badges you could train your team on the wild pokemon on this route while your waiting. If you have all 16 then you will have a lot of running from pokemon to do.

  24. How do you get Raiko and Entei in pokemon crystal, please help me I looked everywhere in the grass and nothing.

  25. To JJG,

    Thats fine, I didnt know if you plyaed them or not. Like I said I have never played them and probably never will so I was trying to find experienced people to help.
