    Flying

    Ground
    Normal
    Poison
    Rock

    Special Types:

    Q: How do you get Mew?
    Legally and officially, the only way to get Mew in the first generation was to receive one during an official Nintendo event. This means that unless you or someone you know attended such an event, it is now impossible to legally obtain a Mew.

    Mew can, however, be obtained through a glitch in the game. Details below.


    Q: What's that truck next to the S.S. Anne for?
    Nothing. It has no use whatsoever, and it cannot be moved.


    Q: Where are the rare or one-of-a-kind Pokémon?
    Hitmonlee / Hitmonchan - Challenge and defeat the Fighting Dojo leader and you'll get to choose between Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan.
    Lapras - After you defeat your rival in Silph Co., a terrified worker will give you Lapras. If you don't have the space for it, you can come back and get it later.
    Eevee - Obtained in Celadon City, through a rear entrance to Pokémon Mansion.
    Porygon - Buy it in Celadon Casino for 9999 coins (Red) or 6999 coins (Blue).
    Omanyte / Kabuto - At the end of Mount Moon, you get to choose between a Dome Fossil (Kabuto) or a Helix Fossil (Omanyte). Take your fossil to the Lab on Cinnabar Island later in the game to have it resurrected.
    Aerodactyl - Use Cut to get into the back entrance to the Museum in Pewter City. Talk to the scientists to get some Old Amber. Take this to the Lab on Cinnibar Island to get an Aerodactyl.
    Snorlax - One Snorlax can be found on Route 12 and another on Route 16. You'll need a Pokéflute to wake them up

    Q: How do I get a Surfing Pikachu?
    You can teach a Pikachu Surf using Pokémon Stadium. To do so, you must do the following:
    • The Pikachu must be on a 6-member team you use to beat the R2 Prime Cup at Master Ball level. It does not have to be from the Yellow game; Red/Blue Pikachus are fine.
    • All the Pokémon on your team must be chosen directly from your Game Boy cartridge (no registered teams, no rentals). They can be in your party or in any box in Bill's PC.
    • If you lose, you can re-enter, and you can use regular continues, but you cannot save the game and continue later. If you save and quit, you've screwed it all up.
    • Pikachu does not have to be used in every battle and does not actually have to take part in any battle, but must be on your 3-member team in the last round. It can sit on the bench or participate in Rounds 1-7, it doesn't matter.
    • Once you have won, your Pikachu will automatically learn to Surf if it knows less than 4 attacks. If it already knows 4 attacks, you can select which one it will forget (in hyper-cute fashion) to make room for Surf, or you can abandon learning the move.


    Q: How do I get the original starters?
    Charmander - Route 24 - Talk to a guy near the bridge (a non-trainer sort of guy)
    Bulbasaur - Cerulean City - Talk to a girl in the house next to the Pokécenter (make sure Pikachu is happy!)
    Squirtle - Vermilion City - Talk to Officer Jenny in the middle of the city


    Q: How do I make Pikachu happy?
    Use items, level Pikachu up and use it in battles against Gym Leaders. Placing it in the PC, letting it faint or trading it away will decrease Pikachu’s happiness.


    Q: What Pokémon can I get from in-game trades?
    Machoke (will evolve during trade): Route 5 Gatehouse - Trade for a Cubone
    Dugtrio: Route 11 Gatehouse - Trade for Lickitung
    Mr. Mime: Route 2 (via Diglett's cave) - Trade for Clefairy
    Parasect: Route 18 Gatehouse - Trade for Tanegla

    Pokémon Green

    Q: Can I get Mew if I fill my Pokédex?
    No. Mew is not available in Green. The rumour that it can be obtained when you fill your Pokédex is only a rumour.



    How to Get Mew in R/B/Y

    While Mew cannot be legally obtained in any first generation game, there is a glitch within the games that allows players to encounter any Pokémon, including the legendary Mew.


    The Classic Glitch

    Before executing this glitch:
    • Do not battle the Gambler on Route 8 who is facing the Underground Path towards Celadon City
    • Do not battle the Youngster facing north on Route 24
    • Be able to use Fly outside of battles
    • Stock up on Pokéballs!
    To execute this glitch:
    1. Go to Route 8 and head towards the door to the Underground Path right by the aforementioned Gambler. Save the game here, before initiating a battle with him. From here on out, do not save the game again until the glitch has been executed.
    2. Step towards the Gambler and press the Start button immediately. If you do this quickly enough, the menu will pop up before he can battle you. This is the desired result. If he battles you before your menu pops up, restart the game and try again.
    3. Fly to Cerulean City. The "!" will appear over his head as you fly away.
    4. You will not be able to press Start, A or B. Walk to the Youngster on Route 24 and walk into his line of sight, but do not walk directly in front of him. Make sure that he has to walk towards you to battle you. Defeat his Slowpoke.
    5. Fly to Lavender Town or Saffron City.
    6. If you went to Lavender, head west. If you went to Saffron, go east to the guard building.
    7. The Start menu will automatically pop up. Close it (again, without saving).
    8. A wild Mew will appear! It is at level 7 and only knows Pound.

    The Alternate Glitch

    Before executing this glitch:
    • Have a Pokémon in your party with a Special stat of 21
    • Do not battle the Gambler on Route 8 who is facing the Underground Path towards Celadon City
    • Ensure there is at least one other trainer in the game you have not battled
    • Again, stock up on Pokéballs!
    To execute this glitch:
    1. Go to Route 8 and head towards the door to the Underground Path right by the aforementioned Gambler. Save the game here, before initiating a battle with him. From here on out, do not save the game again until the glitch has been executed.
    2. Step towards the Gambler and press the Start button immediately. If you do this quickly enough, the menu will pop up before he can battle you. This is the desired result. If he battles you before your menu pops up, restart the game and try again.
    3. Fly away to battle the other trainer. The "!" will appear over his head as you fly away.
    4. Fly to a location that has wild Ditto and battle one. Allow the Ditto to transform into your Pokémon who has a Special stat of 21. Defeat it.
    5. Do not battle any other Pokémon from this point.
    6. Fly to Lavender Town and walk east.
    7. The Start menu will automatically pop up. Close it (again, without saving).
    8. A wild Mew will appear! It is at level 7 and only knows Pound.

    This method can be used to get just about any Pokémon. RaZoR LeAf and pokeglitch compiled a list of what level 7 Pokémon will appear based on your Pokémon's Special stat.

    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. 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. You want them to be faster than the beasts.


    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 depend on chance, as there is no way to track them until you have encountered them randomly in the wild. Don't worry if they get away the first time.


    Step Five: Chase The Legendaries
    Once you have seen a beast at least once, you will be able to find its 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.


    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.

    Gold/Silver/Crystal games won't save

    Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal were released in 2000 and 2001, and due to their age, many game cartridges are no longer in perfect working order. For many years now, gamers’ files have stopped saving, or have been deleted entirely. This is due to the game’s internal batteries dying. The internal battery stores save data, and becomes worn out after extended use, especially if the game wasn't played for a long time. There are, however, a number of ways to fix the cartridges without replacing it entirely. Please read on for Pure’s explanation!

    As a note, C.Gholy tried Domefossil's method in April 2012, and was successful.

    Breeding Questions for G/S (reproducing Celebi starting moves)

    So I was going back to Gold and Silver to try and take a stab at the Coin Case glitch to nab myself a Celebi, since I've never had one before. But the glitch is much more complicated than getting a Mew in 1st Gen, and in the course of the glitch you end up transforming a pokemon into Celebi. Thing is, this Celebi gets the original low-level pokemon's moves to start with, as well as their name (the latter is of course easy to change). So to create the most "legitimate" Celebi that I can, I wanted to breed a pokemon with as many of Celebi's starting moves as possible. Or at least the most important ones.

    Starting moves are:
    Leech Seed
    Confusion
    Heal Bell
    Recovery

    Does anyone know the best way to go about this? Obviously, getting all the moves is (probably) impossible, and I would prioritize the pokemon getting Heal Bell and Recovery, since those are more useful.

    Trying to make a Bad Clone in Crystal

    As the title says, I am trying to get a bad clone of my Magikarp; so I can get a Mewtwo. However, I can't seem to get a bad clone. I've looked all over the internet, and tried almost every suggestion out there (outside of doing it through Stadium 2 since I don't have a 64). So please, if you think you can help me, please leave a suggestion below.

    RED and BLUE. Fake box packaging or not?

    I apologize in advance if this is not the correct place to post this. First post here! (Hello!)

    I registered because I had a question for the members of Serebii that google wasnt helping me much with. I recently purchased a RED box off amazon with a bottom that had one flap. And when I was searching to buy BLUE, I found that some boxes either have one flap or two.

    Weird right?

    The one flapped box I have looks official, and have googled and searched enough to see that people are commonly seling both. In fact, most blue listings are one flap. So before I buy a BLUE box, does anyone happen to have any idea if one is a counterfeit or not? The nintendo logo on the back of my red is that light metallic nintendo is known for and the type looks completely legible and not a basic print. I know from experience to make something look shiny-ish, it requires a second printing job. And counterfeits back in the early 2000's didn't do much of that. My thinking its a result of a 1st and second print run, but I thought people on here might know something more?

    Just wanted to ask before I purchased! Im a gen 1 fan just wanting to buy back his games! Apologies again if this is in the wrong place.

    Stat Experience and IVs

    Okay, so I am still confused by how the system works in the first two generations. My questions:

    1. Is it possible to max out all of a Pokémon's stats without any sorts of glitches? Would it require a lot of time?

    2. Is it possible to give 10 of each vitamin to a Pokémon in R/B/Y/G/S/C? (I.e; giving a Charizard 10 Proteins, 10 Irons, 10 Calciums, 10 Carbos, and 10 HP Ups)

    3. If glitches absolutely are necessary (like a last resort), are there any that are relatively safe and not tedious/require a lot of other glitches?

    Yes, it's possible to max out a Pokemon's stats in Gen I/II without using glitches. In those two gens, there is no cap on stat experience so Pokemon can gain the maximum amount of stat experience in *all* their stats (unlike Gen III and later, where you can only max out the EVs in two stats at most).

    When you defeat a Pokemon in RBY/GSC, you gain stat experience equal to the base stats of the Pokemon you defeated (so defeating something like Mew would give 100 stat exp. to each stat). Up to 10 vitamins can be used for each stat (so you can give a newly caught Pokemon 10 of every vitamin).

    The first two gens also have an IV system (sometimes called DVs), so those will affect your stats as well.

    You can check here and here for more information on stat exp. and IVs in Gen I/II.
    There's also this guide on stats and training that might be useful.

    Okay, thank you!

    So, I'm just looking for a general approximation, if I give 10 of each vitamin to my Level 50 Zapdos / Level 40 Suicune, how many Elite 4 runs do you think it would take to max out the rest of their stat experience? Anyone?

    There is this Smogon thread where some people have calculated the number of Elite Four runs required. Some posters got slightly different results, but it should give you a pretty good idea of how much training you'll need to do.

    Thank you again! Also, I apologize about the double post, it was just to get someone to see the message.

    Okay, I'm back again, I have a question for Gen 2. Regarding Suicune, Raikou and Entei in Gold and Silver, are their DVs determined when you release them from the Burnt Tower, or when you first encounter them? Like if I wanted to soft-reset for a Shiny Raikou or Entei, would I save before releasing them from the Tower, or before encountering them in the grass?

    I tried searching for information about this, but I couldn't find anything specifically about Gen II. To err on the safe side, though, I'd save before releasing them from the tower just in case.

    I'm aware of the box trick to "ev train" in gen 1, but does that work in gen 2 as well?

    For example I have a legit mew I'm training. It's level 100 but I keep battling E4 and then boxing it and noticing the stats get better. Once they no longer cange I'll be done training it. Is this the same for gen 2? Most of wat I want to fully train is gen 1, but I have a shiny smoochum from the odd egg I want to train up too. So would I do the same...level it to 100 and then box trick until no more stat changes?
     
  15. Aquarelle

    Aquarelle Moderator Staff Member Moderator

    Yes, you can use the box trick to EV train Pokemon in Gen II as well. I have personal experience with this on my Gold version, where all of my main team members' stats kept increasing at level 100 until their stat experience capped out. I specifically remember how my Lugia's HP stat eventually reached 400+ after "box tricking" it at lv. 100 several times.
     
  16. Trainer Frankie

    Trainer Frankie Nostalgia.

    Cool, so it makes really no difference if I do it in gen 1 or 2 then? Reason is because I want to save my legit event mew and some other pokemon I've trained in Stadium and Stadium 2 (where all are applicable) in case the game batteries die.

    Aquarelle Moderator Staff Member Moderator

    Right, it doesn't matter whether you do it in Gen I or Gen II, it should work the same. ^^

    New question. It's not possible to teach a jynx dream eater via tm and then send her to gen 1, is it? I remember there was something like moves unavailable or learned in later games not doable in gen 1 couldn't be traded to gen 1. But if that's correct, then I can't just teach jynx dream eater in gen 2 and send her back to gen 1 knowing dream eater?
     
  19. Aquarelle

    Aquarelle Moderator Staff Member Moderator

    You should have no problem teaching Jynx Dream Eater in Gen 2 and then trading it back to Gen 1. I've only heard of there being problems when trying to trade a Pokemon with a move that was introduced in Gen 2 back to Gen 1. Since Dream Eater was introduced in Gen 1, you can trade any Gen 1 Pokemon with Dream Eater to and between the Gen 1 games.

    I can't remember...pokémon knowing hm moves can or cannot be traded between gen 1 and/or 2?
