• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.
  • Hi all. We had a couple of reports of people's signatures getting edited etc. in a bad way. You can rest assured this wasn't done by staff and nobody has compromised any of our databases.

Fake/Rumored Cheats

I can remember fully, but it was along the lines of, "Catch a Sunkern, raise it to level 50 WITHOUT evolving, Fly to Azalea Town and press A at the shrine until Celebi appears."

It's amazing how many stupid methods there are for Mew, unlimited items, fake Pokemon, and the like.

EDIT: Oh, R/B/Y/G thread. How about, "Train Missingno., teach it Fly, Fly to all the cities in reverse order six times, and when you get to Pallet, You'll find a MEW in your room."

Catch a Magikarp and nickname it "Mew". Then talk to the Name Rater 30 times and he'll become frustrated and trade you for a Mew.
Catch Mewtwo again.
Go to Unknown Cave.
Use ItemFinder
Get Scale
Take it to Professor Oak
Trade it for the starter your rival chose.
Go back to Unknown Cave.
Mewtwo will reappear but at LV.40.
Catch it.

I remember the "Microwave Trick": Fight a Pidgey in Viridian Forest and put your GB in the microwave for five minutes on the highest setting and you'll get the Mew... That one was all over, anyone else remember it?

I was told there was a way to get mew.
You had to get 6 Rydons and teach them all Strenth and Surf.
Than go to that mystery truck and use strenth.
(I was a realy gullable kid. What a waste of 3 months. lol)

If you have a Magikarp on level 5, and let it use Splash on a Tentacool while Surfing, it does DOUBLE DAMAGE! :D

(I can't believe I fell for that one when I was a kid :p)
