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?

    Not in this game without really messing around with a gameshark.

  5. hey game guru, my freind said thet there was a pokemon that had blurred letters and the only one you could see was M. is there a way to get this?

  6. To whiteeeyyy,
    I am assuming that is some kind of Nintendo event? They are few and far between, do some research online and just watch for commercials or adds in the newspaper advertising one.

  7. how do you get to nintendo rep

    Mikedude, your brother’s game is in danger of crashing because of what he did. If the game crashes it might not work ever again. He needs to go to Spear Pillar and face Dialga before he glitches the game anymore. My action replay started to mess up my game so I had to delete my save file.

  9. To luster321,
    You can face him as many times as you want.

  10. To Mikedude,
    That’s funny, it was probably an action replay, they are getting popular as well.

  11. can i face red(ash)one more time in the game?

  12. P.S. my brother’s game is Diamond, not Crystal.

  13. To froggy15,
    Finally, someone who agrees with me!!! Unless it’s something you can’t do or get without them, cheats are dumb. I don’t have any Pokemon games currently (I lost my Diamond), but on my brother’s game, he used something (it works like a gameshark but I don’t think it is one) to get past the guy that blocks your way to Sunyshore until you beat Dialga/Palkia, and now, unless he flies to it, the guy blocks him from getting there.

  14. To black rocks and Mikedude,
    Pretty much any store with a gaming section, they may cost anywhere from $20-$30. Oh and Mikedude they are devices used for cheating, the only good thing to use them for is to get unatainble pokemon such as Celibe…and to do cool cheats like the walk through walls one.

  15. P.S. froggy15, what’s a gameshark?

  16. Okay, to all you people out there in Pokemon land, who here loves Venusaur and Blastoise and thinks Charizard stinks? I need some support here!!!!!

    where do you get game sharks and for how much

  18. black rocks // January 3, 2009 at 4:50 am // Reply

    thanks froggy 15 yes there was a truck

  19. To black rocks,
    Well that myth is for red, blue, yellow, leaf green and fire red, but it is still a myth. There is a glitch truck, and in fire red and leaf green a hidden lava cookie near the truck, but no mew. If you find a video of it they did it with a game shark.

  20. (do this before going on frry) on crystl i found mew surfing behind the frry( u have to hav strenth as wel as surf ) the dor at the back is open and he is there. P.S dont know if i was glithed but it worked on gold silver lg + fr

  21. To phphph,
    Talk to Schoolboy Alan on route 36, and eventually we will call you and give you a firestone. Or show Bill’s grandpa on route 25 a Lickatung, oddish, staryu, then growilthe to get a firestone.

  22. where do you get a firestone in pokemon crystal?

    • find a school boy named Allan, register his no. and wait till he calls 4 a gift. there, you have it

  23. To shadows of almia,
    I would teach it mud slap instead of gust, that way if you have to go up against a rock or electirc pokemon you at least have something to fight back with.

  24. shadows of almia // December 26, 2008 at 5:43 pm // Reply

    I beat red with a lv.81 Pidgyot.Pidgyot knows fly wing attack quick attack and gust

  25. To pokefan56,
    Waterfall is in ice path and talk to Fisherman Tully on route 42 and he will give you a water stone eventually.
