    How to catch the elusive Raikou, Entei and Suicune:


    These three Pokémon (or two if you play Crystal) were the first of their kind in that they roam around the game and flee battles quickly. They're both hard to find and catch, making it a real challenge for trainers. The only way to encounter them is by getting lucky and bumping into them in the wild, and they can easily Run or use Roar to escape. Catching them is no easy task, but it’s doable even without a Masterball.

    Step One: Unleash Them
    Go to the Burnt Tower, approach them and let them run away. Don't panic, they're supposed to do that.


    Step Two: Build Your Team
    These Legendaries are very tricky because they can Run away whenever they want, or use Roar, and if you accidentally kill them, they won't come back. That is why the following attacks are needed:
    False Swipe – Catch a Scyther/Scizor from the Bug Catching Contest, or Farfetch'd on Route 38/39.
    Mean Look/Spider Web – The Gastly line and Spinarak line know these respectively. Gastly can be found in the Spout Tower at night and Spinarak on Route 30 and 31 at night (but only in Silver).
    Hypnosis/Spore/Sleep Powder/Sing, and Fly – For these, check the Serebii Attackdex.

    A Gengar with Mean Look and Hypnosis and a Scyther/Scizor with False Swipe should be perfect. The Pokémon with Fly is only there for transportation, so it can be anything. Alternatively, put all these moves on a Smeargle if you can manage it. Raise your team to at least level 45. If they're slower than the beasts, train them more.


    Step Three: Stock Up
    Buy a lot of Ultra Balls and get Fast Balls from Kurt. Have at least 15-20 on you at all times. You might also want to buy some Repels so you won't have to waste as much time battling wild Geodude once you know where the beast is.


    Step Four: Find the Legendaries
    This will first rely on chance, as there is no way to track them until you have encountered them randomly in the wild. The first time they appear you'll probably have a heart attack, but don't panic if things don't work out and they get away.


    Step Five: Chase The Legendaries
    Once you have seen one of them at least once, you will be able to find that beast’s current location through your Pokédex. However, once you enter a city, route, cave, building, or simply turn your game off/on, its location will change. So it won't stay in the same place for very long, and catching up to it is very hard.

    To begin the hunt, keep your Gengar first in your party, check the beast’s location and Fly somewhere nearby. There is a slim chance that it will change places to be nearer you or even in the same place, because they cannot jump from one end of Johto to another. Rinse and repeat until you find them; it's a long game of cat and mouse, but you'll also learn how to anticipate their movements and be near them. It takes a time, practice and patience, but it's worth it.


    Step Six: BATTLE!
    Once you encounter Raikou, Entei or Suicune, start off with Mean Look or Hypnosis. Either move can be good or bad; Mean Look prevents it from Running, but it can still use Roar. However, while Hypnosis prevents it from doing either, Hypnosis has low accuracy, and the beast may wake up immediately and Run or Roar.

    Either way, ensure the Legendary is put to sleep, then bring in Scyther. Use False Swipe as many times as possible; this attack will never kill a Pokémon, so it's always safe. If the beast wakes up, switch back to Gengar if possible to put it back to sleep before it gets away. When False Swipe doesn't seem to be doing any more damage, it means that the Legendary only has one HP left, and that's your cue to start throwing Ultra Balls and Fast Balls! Keep Gengar out on the field during this time in case it wakes back up. It may take a good few battles with each beast to get them to this point.


    If they escape, don't give up, because all's not lost. Any damage you have done to it in the past is still there, so if you know it only has one HP left you don't really need Scyther anymore. Just keep using Mean Look/Hypnosis/Ultra Ball, and you should catch it eventually.


    CELEBI:
    You CAN NOT obtain Celebi in Gold, Silver or Crystal.

    • Celebi was ONLY available through an event in the Japanese versions of the games featuring Kurt and the GS Ball.
    • The only LEGIT way to get it in the English versions was at a Nintendo Event. These events were much like the current ones where rare Pokémon are given away. They don't do this for older games anymore. The event took place in July of 2001 and at Six Flags in September of 2001.
    • The only other way is by using a glitch within the game.
    The "bad egg" glitch can also be used to get a Celebi, but it also risks glitching up your game. Please refer to the Official Glitch Thread for more information.




    Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, or things you would like to see added to the FAQ, please don't hesitate!

    Ah, the nostalgia.

    Oh btw, the Move Tutor who teaches Flamethrower, Thunderbolt and Ice Beam appear after you defeat the E4, not after defeating Red. :)

    Oops, go figure! Though that is kind of odd, since I never beat Red in my old games but I don't recall ever seeing the Move Tutor. All well, thanks, consider it fixed!

    I guess this is for help.

    My game file seems to be corrupted (Pokemon Gold), and it's not due to an internal battery error. At least, that's what I believe to be true, considering I replaced the battery mid July.

    While playing Stadium 2 and transferring pokemon from cartridge to cartridge, an error came up that prompted me to remove my game cartridge. So I did, and the N64 freezes. Unable to load my game, I load Gold onto my SP and received the message "The save file is corrupted!" when loading my game.

    Should I just restart or is there some method to retrieving the data?

    If this is the wrong section, apologies. So far I've only seen threads for dead internal batteries rather than the issue i've run into.

    Sorry to say this, but when a Generation I or II game gives you a message like that, there's really nothing you can do but restart. Starting in Generation III, the games keep a backup save in case of corruption, but before that, there was really no failsafe to prevent data loss...

    Oh well, gave me an excuse to restart I suppose.

    Thanks for the help.

    I have a question regarding Raikou, Entei and Suicune.
    According to Bulbapedia, Roaming Pokémon retain a status ailment after fleeing - if I paralyse Entei during a battle, it should still be paralysed upon next encountering it. (Source: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Roaming_Pokémon#Mechanics).
    I am currently hunting the Trio in Pokémon Silver - and the above is not the case. Is Bulbapedia mistaken, am I reading it wrong or is something off about my game cartridge?
    Hopefully, someone knows the answer. Please help! :)

    I'm pretty sure Bulbapedia is right on that one. Are you sure the status isn't retained? Everything, including the amount of HP it lost and the status should be retained for the next battle.

    I'm playing Gold on an emulator and I'm looking for Heracross. According to Bulbapedia, it only appears in Mountain Areas (Like Route 33 where I am now). However, I keep headbutting trees and I only find Spearows and Aipoms. Then I went back to Bulbapedia and it says Heracross only appears in "Special Trees" What constitutes a "Special Tree"?

    Fury Cutter help

    As an attempt to evolve my Scyther, I deleted the move Fury Cutter he had in order to trade with my Red version to evolve Scyther. However, it didn't work, so I basically just deleted my Fury Cutter for good. Is there any way I can get another TM for Fury Cutter? Or, maybe, is there a way I can re-teach Fury Cutter to Scyther, now a Scizor?

    Sadly not. The only way that you could have remedied this was by breeding the move onto a baby Scyther via a father that learns Fury Cutter by leveling up, but unfortunately no Pokemon learn the move through level up in GSC. Unless you have bred Fury Cutter onto other Pokemon prior to removing it from Scyther, the move has been lost for good.

    Ah, such a shame, since it's probably the best bug-type move and will really work well in the e4, since it worked well with Scyther and now I have the Scizor with an enhanced attack. Hopefully my friend who I traded with to get Scizor still has his, so he can trade me a pokemon that's holding it...

    EDIT: Hmm, only took me 2 hours but I got it again on my friend's non-saving Gold version :D

    Greetings!

    I have a quick question- I've just come upon Lugia in Pokemon Crystal in the Whirl Islands!
    And I'd like to try to get the Lugia to be SHINY! But I'm not sure if that is possible or not? Is Lugia predetermined to be Shiny or not when I start the game, or can I soft reset to try and get it Shiny??

    Hopefully someone knows! thanks

    Yes its possible to get a shiny Lugia in Pokemon Crystal.
    You would have to soft-reset it like any other Legendary.

    The Elusive Heracross, Please help!

    ok, i know in crystal heracross is crazy rare to find. but when i compare the 2nd gen pokedex of routes to find him to the pokeearth 2nd gen description of pokemon found on that route he is not shown (ex. it says he can be found on route 42 through trees but on the pokeearth list of pokemon in trees he isnt listed) could someone give me a specific route where i can for sure find heracross through blood, sweat, and tears headbutting??

    Fixed DVs on errand Pokémon (?)

    Hello everybody :)

    On the last months I have been focused on competitive Pokémon in the 2nd generation and there is something that I can't verify yet.

    Do Entei, Raikou and Suicune have fixed DVs (IVs if you want) on these games?

    I caught a Suicune with very low DVs and saved after that >_<
    And I want to catch a Raikou with high DVs, I have weakened it already, but I don't know if the DVs are fixed when you start the game, or maybe with the first encounter...

    Does anybody knows about this?
