Pokemon Heart Gold

How can you get the egg from Professor Elm’s aide when my party is full? And how can you get Pokemon from your Pokewalker into your party?

Games Guru: Sorry, but you cannot add the egg if you don’t have space in your party. Here’s how to restore your Pokemon: Turn on your game. Go to the Pokewalker Connection screen. Press and hold all these buttons at the same time: Up + Select + R. That’s all there is to it!

What happens after you beat Red? What do you do after that? Thanks for answering my questions.

Games Guru: There’s still an adventure that awaits. Fly over to Professor Oak’s lab (that’s in Pallet Town). Choose a Kanto starter and toss him in the PC. Now you can add Kygore and fly back to Route 30. Inside Mr. Pokemon’s house, you’ll get a blue orb. That should give you a good start!

Can you really catch Lugia in Heart Gold?

Games Guru: Yes. Head over to Pewter City and an old man will give you a silver feather to capture Lugia. Now go to the Whirl Islands, all the way to the bottom. You can catch Lugia at Level 70.

  1. when is/was the Celebi event?

  2. Hi, guys!
    I have this super-short yet super cool Action Replay code that I wanted to share with you.
    And don’t worry, I have tested it several times and it works like a charm. Here it is:


    Description: This code allows all Pokemon to learn any Technical Move (TM).

    920722C6 0000D001
    120722C6 000046C0
    D2000000 00000000

    If you like it, please reply.
    If I get enough positive replies, I might give you guys more…

    Until next time, see ya!

  3. my team is
    typhlosion lv.100
    lugia lv.100
    ho-oh lv.100
    sceptile lv.100
    kyogre lv.100 and tyrannitar lv.100

  4. My old nickname was Ash, just so you know.

  5. How do you beat Lance? This is my team,
    Typhlosion lv 69

    Dragonair lv 35
    Togetic lv 58
    Gyrardos lv 20/
    powliwhirl lv 25
    flafly lv 30

    • Nurse Joy recommends that you train the pokemon a bit harder. She’s also requesting that you give your pokemon vitamins to make them stronger. That is all.

  7. how do you get into the veridian city gym?

    • Use a field move called “Cut” nearby one of the trees, and when you get into the gym, it’s a completely different story…

  8. Just in case any of you were wondering(which you probably were not, but I will tell you anyway), Victini is my new nickname. My old one was lewanuva. A question for torterra21 or whoever runs the Heartgold page team(If anyone does.): Can I join your group?

  9. I cant wake up the snorlax with the radio.please help

    • Tune into the uppermost section of the radio. This only works in Kanto(fortunately, it only needs to work in Kanto).

  10. How do you evolve Dragonair?Mine’s at level 50

  11. I think that having Legendaries on your team doesn’t make you an uber trainer, I think it proves that you have what it takes to catch a Legendary. (if you aren’t using an Action Replay, of course!)
    @ torterra21: I think you should consider visiting the Pokemon White page. We could use a veteran like you.

    • torterra21 // June 30, 2011 at 11:51 am // Reply

      Thanks, I think I will try it out. By the way, I agree with you about the legendaries. I have caught every legendary I have encountered on my first try. Some of them I had some trouble with, though. The hardest one for me to catch so far was Suicune.

      • Victini // July 21, 2011 at 5:09 pm //

        Thanks for considering. The legendary that I had the most trouble with would have to be Articuno. But, that was in FireRed, my first pokemon game, and I had forgotten to save beforehand.

    • You know… If you’re using the Action Replay and you watch the credits. It no longer works on that save when you reach the title screen.

    • true.but the legendaries will make your team strong.

  12. how do you capture Latios?

      capture either ho-oh and lugia. once you’ve done that, fly back to your home town and surf on the water and go straight across.

    • Or, you can go there by going west from Viridian City until you reach a gate/intersection/room/thing, then go north to the Badge check gates. Continue going north to reach Victory Road.

        Nice team! Try training your lower levels, for you can’t rely on your Feraligator forever. If it faints when you are battling someone, and the rest of your Pokemon are forty levels below where they should be, what are you going to do?

  22. pokemon master // February 28, 2011 at 6:37 pm // Reply

    for the celebi event you should go to ilex forest and touch the shrine. Then you will go 3 years in the future after that your probably your thinking where is the leader Giovanni’s secret base. You should should go to those two waterfalls that separate the Johto and the Kanto region and when you come from Johto go on the stairs and then go to the farthest waterfall go to the middle of it then walk up then you are the secret room! If you want a Celebi Ho-Oh and Lugia cheats here you go Celebi:BC845AFFDD39F1D3 Lugia:2B303FBFCC39F5AD Ho-Oh:F3B78951596A90C! 🙂

  23. Please rate my team:
    Mewtwo lvl 100, Colbur Berry; Thunder, Blizzard, Fire Blast, Recover. Charizard lvl 100, Wide Lens; Stone Edge, Blast Burn, Focus Blast, Thunder. Arceus lvl 100, Draco Plate; Fire Blast, Earthquake, Judgement, Hyper Beam. Latias lvl 100, Soul Dew; Psychic, Earthquake, Blizzard, Draco Meteor.
    Ho-oh lvl 100, Zoom Lens; Gyro Ball, Thunder, Fire Blast, Brave Bird.
    Arceus lvl 100, Flame Plate; Earthquake, Draco Meteor, Thunder, Judgement.

    • Really good, but you may want to replace thunder with another electric attack(it has bad accuracy unless it’s raining, and that will weaken your fire-type moves), and add either groudon or teach someone sunny day to boost your fire attacks.

  24. Hey theres a new event! Go to gamestop and get the celebi for pokemon black and white to get zoroa.

    you are not evil, i have 15 arceuses:)

  30. From January 30th to February 5th of this year, Toys ‘R’ Us will be having an event. This event will allow you to obtain “Ash’s Pikachu.” At Level 50, it knows Iron Tail, Volt Tackle, Quick Attack, and the well-known Thunderbolt.

  31. You guys know about more name releases and a trailer for Black and White? Look them up on the website.

  32. EVENT: there are 3 events going on starting on January 3rd at Gamestop. The dates and Pokemon are here!

    Shiny Raikou: January 3rd-9th
    Shiny Entei: January 17th-23rd
    Shiny Suicune: January 31st-February 6th

    These Pokemon are not shiny, but know moves they can’t normaly know and can give you a chance to unlock Zoroark in Black and White.

    • typo. They ARE shiny

      • I’m going to be so evil. Once I capture Raikou and Entei in Soulsilver, I will have 2 Raikous, 2 Enteis, and 3 Suicunes! 😀

        The reason is because the event is for Diamond, Pearl, and PLATINUM too. >:)

      • Typhlosion // December 27, 2010 at 3:23 pm //

        Man I had Platinum and lost it and also traded all my shiny beasts but at least I got unusual move knowing,shiny pokemon for replacements. 🙂

      • Typhlosion // March 26, 2011 at 11:00 am //

        Found Platinum and have 2 Celebi’s,2 Suicune’s,2 Entei’s, and 1 Raikou(I deleted the other by accident). Good B&W workers in gym battles. 🙂

  33. Anyone know about the Shiny Beast event? I want all three.

  34. rate my team 1-20 Sudowoodo lv.20 flail,low kick,rock throw,mimic togepi lv.19 sweet kiss,yawn,extrasensory,metromome Quilava lv.29 tackle,flame wheel,quick attack,ember.

    • Good for the early parts of the game.

    • 15. Your Pokemon know good moves, you have plenty of space to add new Pokemon, however, you can’t cover every type using those.
      PS: Try using Sudowoodo’s Flail when it’s Health Points (HP) is low. Flail will do extra damage!

    I have SoulSilver, but it’s the same, and I can’t beat Lance. It’s probably because I only have 2 Pokemon over Level 34, Lugia, level 46, and Typhlosion, level 65. I am currently training an Evee, Poliwhirl, Ponyta, and Swinub. Does any one have any suggestions for me?

    • Added to the Heartgold page team are Zekrom and Comet. Congratulations!

    • Just train like really hard and you should be able to beat Lance. I beat his with a level 20 something Gastly’s Sludge Bumb.

    • That’s a fairly good assortment of Pokémon. If I were you, I’d use a Thunderstone on Eevee, to cover more types. Also, a little more traning would help. All your Pokémon should be at least level 55. Hope this helps!

    • teach your poliwhirl blizzard

        On a scale of 1 to 10, i’d say 5. You said you cheated to get the pokemon. its not legit. Sorry. But your pokemon u cheated to get is a fine choice. You might wanna add the moves though just to see if they fit. P.S if the pokemon werent cheat i would say 9.4

    • The top three would fare, however, the rest would be out in one hit. Train them you will be good to go.

    • shinycharizard // December 8, 2010 at 10:08 pm // Reply

      Don’t take it personally but I don’t think you have a chance against red. My recomendations is train you pokemon in the elite four a lot. Reds pokemon are going to be level 81.If you do have the option to trade your kadabara, do it because its special attack will go way up.Another way to train up for red is to beat all the Kanto gym leaders. Your feraligatr must also have the right moveset.You should only have physical attacks on him. I suggest you have ice fang or ice punch waterfall crunch and brick break or rock slide.

      • i already beat all 16 gym leaders so anyway will the moves on my feraligatr lugia and hooh be strong or will they be weak?
        feraligatr:hydro pump hydro cannon rock climb and superpower
        lugia:aeroblast punishment ancientpower and waterfall
        hooh:fly fire blast sacred fire and brave bird
        thanks for the info

      No, Red has lvls 90-95, you definately need to train some more!

  39. So our current members are:


  40. I have a level 61 dragonite.

  41. how do you beat red with out arcus?

  42. hey you can fight ash on mount silver as many times as you want, but first you have you fight the elite four, after you beat them he is on mount silver. even after uou beat the elite sour a second time. ps the elite four get tougher

    • Thanks for the information, I had been wondering about that.

    • The species of Reshiram and Zekrom have been revealed for English audiences. Reshiram is the Vast White Pokemon who has the Turboblaze ability, while Zekrom is the Deep Black Pokemon who has the Teravolt ability. Also, the Isshu Region has been renamed the Unova Region. This is the first time that the English games have completely renamed a Region in the main series. Personally, I like the name Isshu Region much better.

      • Typhlosion // December 22, 2010 at 2:23 pm //

        Same here. I thought it was a good name. Why couldn’t they kept the name like Zorua and Zoroark?

  43. Im going to choose tsutaji. Jalorda is its 3rd evolved form and im crazy about it!

  46. For the record, the Engkish names of the Black and White Starter Pokemon have been revealed. The Fire-Type is Tepig, the Grass-Type is Snivy, and the Water-type is Oshawott. Personally, I like the Japanese names better.
