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?

  3. you need an gameshark to get celebi you can buy one online

  4. you can get the two dogs in the gasse but onleing
    in the frist and sacend gym.

  5. To actually,
    Well actually you can get Celibe in the Japanese version of the game, and if you can read japanese and english then you can trade the GS ball to the english version and then it is possible to get Celibe in the english version.

  6. To ditto,
    Well I just beat gold over and over again to get master balls but some tips are to use a marowak and use false swipes untill it has 1 health and then you can paralyze it with some pokemon that knows thunderwave. The next step would be to use a crobat and use mean look so it can’t run, then just chuck ultraballs at it.

  7. To PLEASE HELP ME and janeo,
    First go to nugget bridge to battle the team rocket member who stole it. Then check in the small pool of water in the Cerulean City gym.

  8. To askme 88,

  14. To ditto,
    There is’nt an order, but I beat the elite four then caught all of them. Then you must beat the wise trio in the buiding before the tin tower to get the rainbow wing. You have to CATCH the legendary “dogs” though, trades don’t count.

  15. yea my crystle version is starting to go bad is there a way to reset it so it works like its brand new???

  16. to froggy15
    never mind. i caught lugia and Ho-oH last night. where is mewtwo, zapdos, moltres, articuno, and shiny mewtwo?

  17. to froggy15,
    i caught entei, on the 1st route going from euketrak to olivine. the route where the girl gives you items after her battles. but lets get to busness. do you go to euketrak after: 1. catching legedary dogs 2. beating the elite four 3. getting rainbow wing . is it in that order? i went to tin tower to get the rainbow wing ( read about it on the internet) and got no ladder, no rainbow wing. please do answer.

  18. pokémon is easy

  19. To trishy,
    You really have your whole pack and pc filled up…wow thats a lot of items. Your key items don’t really take up space so you might as well keep them. But as long as you have either full restores or full heals and hyper-potions you don’t need berries any more, that would save a lot of room in your pack. You also dont need mail, those are just a waist of time. If you need anything else feel free to ask, crystal is my specialty, I have caught 250 pokemon on it.

  20. Hi Froggy15, Please help. What items should I permanently get rid of from my pack and my pc and not bother to carry anymore? I am always finding items and game says “found —— but no more room right now” and they are things I want to keep like nuggets and rare candy and apricorns. I am currently looking for Entie and Raiku (already caught Suicine) so can I ditch things like the old rod, squirt bottle, card key or escape rope? I know some of these things I can’t get a second time. Thanks for your help. I have really enjoyed reading all of yours and others comments (except for how many times people ask where to find Entie and Raiku haha).
    Thanks again and keep the info coming.

  21. To sishant,
    You can get steelix by traiding an onix holding a steel coat and you can find Lugia in the whirl islands once you have the silver wing.

  22. To ditto,
    You can get all sorts of things from posters, to dolls, to evolution stones, to berries.

  23. To emm09,
    Talk to a man in the Silph Corporation in Saffron City to get the upgrade.
