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?

  1. what can you get besides eon mail in mystery gift?

  2. where do you get the up-grade item?

  3. To ?unown?,
    I have all of the pokemon in crystal version.

  4. i got all the legendary pokemon in crystal version

  5. To ditto,
    Well if you have set enite free from the Tin Tower (where you should have caught suicune) then you will find entie randomly in the grasses of the johto region. Once you run into him once you can track him with the area feature of your pokedex. For crystal version mystery gift you need and 2 old gameboy colors. Then allign the little black squares at the top and with both games click on mystery gift. If you don’t yet have the myster gift option you need to speak to the girl in the Goldenrod department store. She will tell you about mystery gifting and then you will have the option in the menu that appears when you start your gameboy.

  6. to get the train ticket go to kento and go to to the cite strate up from the city that the boat is in and go to the copy cat girl and then go back down to the city with the boat in it then go find the girls doll then go back and give it to her and she will give you the train ticket.

    im lookin for entei. what do you do to get the mystery gift to work and how do you get it?

  8. To cheese,
    This is an old game from like 7 years ago. You can buy it online, and no you can not get those pokemon because they had not been invented yet.

  9. to cheese: You can`t find it because it is an older pokemon game.The ice and grass tipe eevees are only in Dimand,Pearl,and possibly the upcoming Platinum.

  10. Where did you even get the game? I can’t find it. Can you get Leafeon and Galeon, grass and ice type Eevee, in this game?

  11. To ditto,
    You have to use the mystery gift to get the eon mail. Raiku (or Entie, I can’t tell which one you are looking for) can be found on any route in the Johto region, it moves around a lot. Once you find it once you can track it with the area feature of your pokedex.

  12. To mm,
    I assume you mean the starter pokemon, you will have to trade them from other games.

  13. how do you get eon mail. for other info, i traded a krabby off of yellow and it was holding a tm. i have looked for enter on the route before eukrake city and got rioku. i then searched the routes bordering eucrake city and nothin. what am i doing wrong( and dont tell me im flying beacause all my flying pokemon are in the pc).help

  14. how to get all first pokemon?

  18. To Dragonite1000,

    You trade a porygon holding the item called upgrade.

  19. To zero x,

    A game shark is a cheating device that you attack to your gameboy that lets you do certain cheats and obtain pokemon. You can buy them at many stores.

  20. To zero x,

    Last gym leader as the 8th gym leader Clair or the 16th as in Blue? You need to push the boulder in the holes to get to battle Clair, you need to find Blue on Cinibar island first before he will battle you in Viridian City.
