Pokemon Sapphire Version

Where do you find the hm underwater?

Games Guru: The Mossdeep space station — only it’s called Dive.

How do I get a Pokeblock case?

Games Guru: Speak with the little girl in the Contest House in Slateport.

I go to wally house, but his dad does not give me a SURF move. Help me…

Games Guru: Have you beaten Norman, “your father,” in the Petalburg Gym yet?

How do you get to space to catch something?

Games Guru: There is a persistent rumor that you can launch into space from the space station. I have never seen any proof of this.

How do I get the Waterfall move?

Games Guru: It’s in the same cave as Kyrogue, the cave of origin.

How do I make small evolving of Snorlax called Muchlax?

Games Guru: As far as I know, Muchlax is NOT on the Sapphire pokedex. Sorry.

How do you clone Pokemon in this game?

Games Guru: Of all the Pokemon games, I think I have played through this one the most and have never run into Pokemon cloning.

Where will I find Steven and Wallace together in Sootopolis City?

Games Guru: Look in front of the cave.

How do you catch the pokemon Feebas? What kind of rod?

Games Guru: Feebas is on Route 119, but he will only appear in a very small area, and that area changes around. I can’t give you a particular spot on that route; all I can say is hunt and hunt and hunt, and you should find one.

As for the rod, it does not appear to make much of a difference, though I recommend using the good or great rod.

Where do you get the TM move Surf?

Games Guru: Go to Wally’s house in Petalburg and speak with his dad.

How do you get gym leader Wallace’s gym doors open?

Games Guru: Once you have explored the Cave of Origin, Wallace will open the doors to the gym.

How do I defeat the Pokemon League?

Games Guru: I am assuming you mean the Elite Four. If this is not the case, please write back.

Beating the Elite Four plus Wallace (the champion) requires Pokemon of various types. Sidney, the first of the Elite Four, has a Shiftry and Cacturne that will cause you fits if you don’t take them out quickly. Fire and ice both work well on them, if you hit them quickly. Earthquake works well on his Mightyena.

Phoebe, the next member of the Elite Four, has ghosts. Use electricity on her Banettes and Sableye. Use water on her Dusclops.

Next comes Glacia, the ice queen. If she just had normal water Pokemon, you could take them all out with plants, but her Pokemon have cold attacks. Use electricity on her Sealeos and Walrein. Try fire on her Glalies.

Then there’s Drake, the really, really irritating dragon guy. His Pokemon don’t like ice attacks. Most of them are immune to earthquakes. Use electricity on his Kingdra.

Last but not least comes Wallace. If you have a strong electric Pokemon, this should go pretty well. If not, well, you’ll gain a lot of experience repeating your way through the Elite Four.

    i found out that if you get the national pokedex by trading from different pokemon games like sliver.then you go to the space staion then they send you to space

    this is squeekee with a new cheat: tired of seeing eggs all over ur pokemon storage? u can get rid of them faster this way:
    find a pokemon with the abilities FLAME BODY or MAGMA ARMOR. magmar and slugma are the best 2 i know of for this cheat. get ur mach bike, and put ur egg next to slugma or magmar. the egg hatches 4 times faster. this cheat works for ruby, sapphire, and emerald. happy hatching!!!

  9. I kow how to get 1000 master balls (P.S. its true.)

  10. where is a good place to train so that you can get through victory road and beat the elite four?

  11. is it true you can go to space to catch deoxes
    and if you can how many rocket launches does it take ?????Please reply

    • You can catch the spaceship launch and in doing so catch a legendary (either Deoxys or Celebi) only in the Japanese versions, so unless you cheat or have international versions of the game, sorry you don’t get to ride the rocket.


    • keep going from route to city dont just go around randomly. Just go from slateport, up, and down again, eventually it will be in your route

      • hobo joe // May 29, 2011 at 8:35 pm //

        actually refer to your pokenavigator it shows u the location

      • sigma45 // June 14, 2011 at 7:17 pm //

        that isn’t the problem it is at red health, and nothing works to catch it, plus, I don’t have a pokemon fast enough to put it to sleep or anything like that.

      • brendan & may // November 4, 2011 at 7:56 am //

        get a pokemon with shadow tag and a crobat w/ mean look
        you also need a timer ball
        stock up other balls so u could increase the no of turns in the battle then
        you might get lucky

    how do you get a rayquaza? and if you can get a groudon where is he?

    • you can find raquaza in the sky pillar

    • Chimcharman // May 8, 2011 at 8:36 pm // Reply

      For rayquaza, you need a Mach Bike and you need to fall to the middle of the second floor of Sky Pillar.To catch Kyogre,Surf near R119.Dive then there is a rock. when you finish reading,go to the other side and go into the room. Use RSmash,go in the room, and youll find it.I suggest having abilty Shadow Tag and Arena Trap.

    • I would give it an 8/10, you don’t need two water pokemon. I like the rest of your team though, good job not usuing all legendary like some people do.

      • brendan & may // June 4, 2010 at 5:07 am //

        i know i don’t need 2 water Pokemon but i don’t want a Pokemon with 3 hm moves

      • brendan & may // June 4, 2010 at 5:17 am //

        oh i forgot to say. i don’t like legendaries for my party. besides i like to use diff Pokemon every-time i play anew game.

      • froggy17 // June 9, 2010 at 7:51 pm //

        I understand what you mean but you rarely need dive or waterfall, so you could just take out the pokemon when you need to use it, or I would suggest having an ice pokemon to learn them instead of two water. I know what you mean, on ruby I have three teams worth of pokemon that I rotate out to keep it interesting.

    • my team
      Blaziken lv 100
      Swampert lv 100
      Swellow lv 69
      Kyogre lv 96
      Raquaza lv 74
      Skeptile lv 70

      • winner68 // June 22, 2010 at 4:23 pm //

        I’m sorry if I made it sound like I was bragging but I was just posting my team

    • yes and no. you need to train if you want to beat the E4. I yoused 2 pokemon to win

      • brendan & may // July 16, 2010 at 7:30 am //

        actually I beat them already using this team. no one of my pokemon fainted.

    • nice team. is good

    • pokemaster577 // August 2, 2010 at 8:44 am // Reply

      2/10 thats a horrable team you need aleast a level 100 on there but not counting levels 10/10 thats a great team beat the elite four 87 times then the game was stolen out of my back pack you can catch rayqaza by going to the tower by the floating town no you can not catch groudon

    Where in the world do you get dig
    and if you say diglit/dotrio where can i find him/her

    • Talk to the fossil maniac on route 114, either he or his freind give it to you. The only pokemon that learn it naturally on this game are Nincada at level 45 and trapinch at level 41.

  23. How do i catch rayquaza after beating the elite 4?

    • Check the top part of route 131, you will find that a gap has formed letting you enter Sky Pillar, make sure to bring a Mach Bike.

    poll:best fire pokemon?


    poll ends june 2nd

  25. where do you find ghost typ pokemon

  26. list of fire ice electrice

  27. if you beAT kyroge can you get another chance

  28. I found a treeko in tall grass bofor

  29. how do you get to wallace in sapphire?

    • Watch the submarine get stolen in the Slateport City harbor. Then go to route 137 and dive underwater. Find team aqua’s base and watch kyogre vanish. Go to the cave of origin and catch Kyogre. Then you can battle Wallace.

  30. Theoretically, the Elite 4 are the former Pokemon league champions, right?
    So therefore, Phobe, the Ghost trainer, beat Sidney, the Dark trainer, and Glacia, the Ice trainer, beat Sidney and Phobe, but was defeated by Drake, the dragon trainer.
    Dark beats Ghost and Ice beats Dragon.
    So how does this work?

  31. If you want to clone a pokemon I heard you deposit the pokemon and then save but when it says saving don’t turn of power turn off then on.

  32. The champion is Steven!!!

    i can’t get my pokedex own number over 166 how do i get it higher than that?

    • I know on ruby the most you can get with out traiding is 178 so it is most likely around that on sapphire. Tell me some of the ones you are missing and maybe I can help you find them.

      • winner68 // June 22, 2010 at 4:25 pm //

        on my pokedex I have 266 pokemon but thats only because I have sapphire ,emerald ,ruby and leaf green

      • what moves can rayquaza learn pleas preety please

      • froggy17 // May 17, 2010 at 4:26 pm //

        After you catch it the only thing it will learn is hyperbeam at level 75, but this list of tm’s is to long to post.

    • If you wanna Rayquasa, go to sky pillar. Get a Mach Bike.GO to third floor,and fall to the second floor’s middle.Rayquasa will know:Fly Outrage Dragon Claw Rest.I would use FALSE SWIPE while rayquasa used REST.
