Where do you get the wish tag?

Games Guru: I have never found a Wish Tag. I have checked the best sources and they all say that the Wish Tag does not exist.

I was wondering if you know how to get to Sootopolis City.

Games Guru: Head south from Mossdeep Island along route 127. Once you clear the water cliffs, head left to Route 126. You will quickly come to an island. Sootopolis is inside that island, but you enter through an underwater cave.

What trendy phrase at Deford City is needed for catching Febass? And could you tell me at least one tile where it can be found? Thank you.

Games Guru: I have to admit I have never encountered Febass in Pokemon Ruby. Are you sure it is there?

How I can get the legendaries to show the walkthroughs?

Games Guru: I do not understand. I must be missing something on this one.

What is the best way to catch Pokemon like Rayquaza? I hear all these bogus stories like press this button when you throw it and it works 97% of the time, etc. I’m finding it very hard to catch Rayquaza since I don’t have a masterball (not sure where to get it). I use ultra balls, timer balls and pokeballs. Can you help?

Games Guru: First of all, allow me to congratulate you on getting to Rayquaza–that bike ride up to the roof was tough! Now, to Rayquaza. Like you, I have heard people say to use these pokeballs in this order or that order. I have read that this ball or that ball works best. In my experience, with the exception of the Master Ball, there is only one in the game, and it is in Team Aqua/Magma’s secret base. It’s all a matter of luck. I have caught legendary Pokemon with plain old normal pokeballs after wasting dozens of fancy ones.

Save your game before approaching Rayquaza, then wear it down, paralyze it and use every last pokeball you have got. If that does not work, DO NOT SAVE! Simply turn off your game, turn it back on and try again. Sooner or later, you are bound to catch your monster. Just be sure you have a good supply of pokeballs — dozens and dozens of them.

When you said to watch TV after beating the Elite 4 and Mom would ask a colorful question, did you have to beat the Elite 4 for a first time in the game or any time?

Games Guru: I hate to do this to you, but you need to refresh my memory. What are you trying to accomplish? I recall advising a reader to speak to “Mom” after beating the Elite 4 — I think it was to see a newscast about the victory and becoming the new champ, but, alas, I am getting old and need a reminder every now and then.

Can you multiply Pokemon? If so, how?

Games Guru: There is a Pokemon breeding center just west of Mauville. Go have a look.

    • Give the woman who lives next to pokemart in Mauville City a harbor mail and she will give you the coin case.

      to patough7 you get it when you go to maulville. a lady dreams of having wingull mail. go south to the next city and go into the poke mart and buy wingull mail. then go back and talk to the lady. she will gladly trade your mail for her coin case.

  15. In Mossdeep City in the there is a house with a locked back door how do u get in? Also can u realy get on the moon to get deoxis? If not how do u get him/her.

    • You don’t and you can’t get to the moon, you have to go to a Nintendo event or use a gameshark.

    • mariomaster // April 6, 2010 at 4:15 pm // Reply

      oh and ninga frogy forgot something. you get deaxos by having a gameshark. Or ( but this dos not happen anymore ) you can get a mystic ticket and talk to yur father to get it . you go to the docks and give the sailor the ticket. he will take you to birth island and you can battle and capture deaxos.

      • froggy17 // April 8, 2010 at 1:20 pm //

        And to get a mystic ticket you go to a Nintendo event…which is what I said…

      About the locked door in mossdeep- you need something called an “E-card” (i think).This induces a new trainer into the game.After you use the “E-card” ,the door unlocks and leads to a battlefield- where you battle the “new” trainer.He/She is supposed to have a Lv.5 Jirachi.
