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. no problem nals

  3. yo froggy thanks ma dude

  4. To ichigo,

    You have to traied them from red, yellow, or blue. Flower mail is a stupid thing where if you traid a pokemon with a friend and there caring the flower mail you can read a message from them.

  5. how can i get zapdos-articuno&moltres in pokemon cystal? what is the use of flower mail?

  6. To nals,

    Before you get to Viridian city you have to get to Pewter city. To do that you have to go through digglet’s cave which is blocked by snorlax. From Pewter city it’s as simlpe as going south to get to the other two citys. Also, once you beat all 8 kanto gyms, visit profesor oak and the guards will leave allowing you to go to Mt. Silver.


  8. in crystal, after u beat the elite 4, how do u get those 2 guards to move right before victory road in the building? and how do u get to pallet and viridien city

  9. To Cool,

    HM 03 surf is in the last place you would think to look. It is in Ecruteak City (where’s the water?) in a dance hall. You will have to take on 5 dancers who have the eevee evolutions and an old guy in the building will then give it to you.

  10. To icant,

    If you dont want to go to raikou, let raikou come to you. Stay in one route, (recommend route 44) and spend your time trianing or just running from wild pokemon. Eventually raikou will come visit your route. From there try all of the techniques recommende before. This is not the fastest way but eventually it will work.
