cannot catch certain Pokemon in RUBY and SAPPHIRE. Let me remind
you... Never use a gameshark because it will lower your enjoyment.

Here's my profile in the game so you can't be confused when you
read my faqs:

Character's Name: Landon
Pokemon Chosen: Treecko
Rival's name: May

And now let's get in the game... 


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Once you hit NEW GAME, Professor Birch will introduce to you the world of

GIRL or BOY. Once you chose, name it. After that scene, Professor will tell 
you that your characters adventure is about to unfold. and he'll say,
"I'll see you later".

to your new house in Houen. After the truck parks, go outside and your Mom
will surprise you. "Hi! ...., good to see you, do you like a new home?" She 
take you inside and tell you to fix your clock. Once your in your room, 
go in front of the clock and change the time. Once you finished setting it up,
you MOM will surprise you again and asked to walk outside. Go downstairs and 
your MOM will surprise you again, She will let you watch your father in the 
TV. Too bad, you can't watch it because it's too small. ^_^ After that scene
go outside and visit your neighbor in the east of your house. Once you've
entered the house, a lady will be surprised, he will tell you the Professor 
Birch is not yet around and she will tell you to talk to MAY. Go upstairs
of her house and you will a girl, talk to her and you will SURPRISE HER!! 

 Once you talked to her, she will tell you that she needs to go outside. 
She will go outside and leaves you for a while. Now, go outside and head
out of town. When you get out of town, you will see a guy shouting for
help. He will ask you to get a Pokemon from his bag. (You need to choose
carefully who's pokemon you like) You can choose, Treecko a grass pokemon,
Torchic a fire pokemon, or Mudkip a water pokemon. (I choose Treecko). 
Once you choose your pokemon, you will be in battle. Battle the Pokemon.

Once you defeat the Pokemon. He will introduce himself. It was PROFESSOR
BIRCH!!!! He will asked you to come to his LAB. In the lab, he wil 
say Thank You to you and tell to you that you can keep the pokemon that 
you chose earlier. You can give a nickname to your Pokemon if you want.
Once you give  a nickname to your pokemon, he will tell  you about his

So, Go outside of town and go all the way to the north. You can raise 
your Pokemon by going to the tall grass and fights wild pokemon.

Pokemon: Treecko LVL 7


Once you've reached Oldale town, you see will a lot of difference in town. 
YOu can go to the P.C pokemon center to heal your pokemon. To tell you the 
truth, you have no business on going in this town yet. Go outside of Pokemon
Center and you will see a girl standing east of Pokemon Center. Talk to her 
and she will take you to her P.M Pokemon Mart. You can buy certain things in
Pokemon Mart, like Potion, Awakening, Antidote, Paralyze Heal, and many more
except POKEBALL!!! Once you've done your business in POKEMON MART, go north
and find MAY/ BRANDON in ROUTE 103. 

---------
Route 103
---------
Pokemon; Treecko LVL 7


 You will find MAY if you go all the way to the north of Oldale town. 
If you talk to her, you battle her in Pokemon fight. So talk to her and 
let's the battle begin...

Pokemon Trainer: MAY
Pokemon used: TREECKO LVL 7
Diffuculty: EASY
Strategies: This is no push over, Just use POUND for TREECKO and use POTIOn
if your POKEMON's health starts dropping down.

 Once you defeat MAY she will ask you to go back in town and have a rest. 
So go all the way back to Littleroot Town. After going to Littleroot town,
be sure to go to your MOM and rest. After resting, go to Professor Birch's
lab to get a Pokedex. Professor Birch gave you a Pokedex because you beat
MAY. YAY ^_^! After you get the Pokedex from Prof. Birch, MAY will give 
you 5 Pokeballs. She will tell you that she will find new pokemon. 
(You're lucky because you're rival is not bad as Gary) After talking to her
go to Oldale town.

-----------
Oldale Town 
-----------
Pokemon: Treecko LVL 7


 Have you talked to the odd professor west of Oldale town? He was talking 
about that he saw a strange footprint. Go to him and you will see that
he's not blocking the road anymore. That path leads you to Route 102.
Don't forget to buy lot's of Potions and Pokeballs!

---------
Route 102
---------
Pokemon: Treecko LVL 8, Wurmple LVL 3


 In these place, you will begin battling Pokemon trainers. Go and battle
the trainers that you will see in the road. You will be a good trainer 
when you have good Pokemon. Here's the list of all the trainers you will 
fight in the area and what are their Pokemon that they're using:
(after this list, we'll proceed the game!)


Trainer: Youngster Calvin
Pokemon Used: Zigzagoon LVL 5
Strategies: This is easy, just use POUND if your using Treecko or use 
scratch. Use a normal attack and you will beat this Youngster! 

Trainer: Bugcatcher Rick
Pokemon Used: Wurmple LVL 4, Wurmple LVL 4
Strategies: Do the same thing you did on Youngster Calvin and MAY

Trainer: Youngster Allen
Pokemon Used: Poochyena LVL 5, Taillow LVL 3
Strategies: Do the same thing you did on Youngster Calvin, Bug Catch Rick,
 and MAY

Trainer: Lass Tiana
Pokemon Used: Zigzagoon LVL 4, Zigzagoon LVL 4
Strategies: Use the same strategies you did in 4 trainers. Beware of
 Zigzagoons GROWL. It will lowers your Attack!


So, let's proceed in the game, once you entered Route 102, go west,
north, be sure to get the Pecha Berry and Oran Berry in the tree.
Once you get it, head west and you should be in Petalburg City.

--------------
Petalburg City
--------------
Pokemon: Treecko LVL 10, Wurmple LVL 10


 Be sure to go first to Pokemon Center because I'm sure your 
Pokemon are tired and injured. After healing your Pokemon,
go to Pokemart to purchase Potion because you will fight a GYM
leader in these city. Go North and you should find a GYM. Go 
inside and you will see a GUY standing in front of the door. 
Talk to him and you will learn that he's your father. Once you
talk to him, somebody will barge in. His name is Wally. 
Wally is from Verdantrof City. He came to Petalburg because
he's on a vacation and want to catch a Pokemon. He wants to get
pokemon from your dad. Your dad wants to help him so he lend
his Zigzagoon to Wally and give a Pokemon. Wally will drag you
to Route 102 and watch him catch Raltz. Once he catch Raltz
he will drag you again to the gym and give back Zigzagoon to
you father. He'll thank your father and leave. Your Dad will tell
you that in order to fight him you need to get 4 badges from the
trainers. So, he'll suggest you to go to Rostboro City GYM and
fight Roxanne and get the STONE BADGE. So, head out of the gym 
and go west and you should be in Route 104


---------
Route 104
---------
Pokemon: Treecko LVL 10, Wurmple LVL 5, Wingull LVL 6


 Once you are in Route 104, go west and go all the way to the north. You
should see a Tree with berries on it. Get it and head west and you will
find a trainer. Fight him.

Trainer: Richboy Winston
Pokemon Used: Zigzagoon LVL 6

Strategies: Just use normal attack on him and don't forget to use
you other pokemon cause it will level up too. 

 After you beat him, go North and you will be in Petalburg Woods.

---------------
Petalburg Woods
---------------
Pokemon: Treecko LVL 11, Wurmple LVL 6, Wingull LVL 6
  Treecko LVL 11 learns QUICK ATTACK


 Be careful on this place because there are certain trainers in it. Be sure 
that your well prepared. In this place you will meet your enemy. So, head 
west once you entered the woods and you'll fight another Trainer again.


Trainer: Bugcatcher Lyle
Pokemon Used: Wurmple LVL 3 (6x)
Strategies: Use Wingull on Wurmple. All of his pokemon are Wurmple so It's
easily to beat him. Just use normal attacks on him and you will beat him 
in no time.


 Find your way to the exit once you defeated the trainer. The exit is all the
way to the north. DOn't worry it's not hard to find it. On your way to the
north, you will see a guy looking for pokemon. Once he finished discussing
about the pokemon, a mysterious gang will appear and an event will happen.

"Prepare for trouble to make it double, To unite our world within our nation...
Meowth.. Meowth that's right!" Wait, is this TEAM ROCKET? Sorry, TEAM ROCKET
is not in the game.

So the mysterious gang is the TEAM MAGMA (Too bad, Jesse and James
is no longer your enemy.) The Team Magma want's something to the guy
that you've talked to. So the guy will tell you to fight him. So,
Fight HIM...


Trainer: Team Magma Grunt
Pokemon Used: Poochyena LVL 9
Strategies: Poochyena is a little bit hard if your pokemon's level is 
 below 10. I will suggest if you use Treecko use QUICK ATTACK. Be careful
 on his attack because it will use SAND-ATTACK that makes your POKEMON's 
 accuracy fell. Once you beat him, YOU WIN...

After you beat that Grunt, he'll say that "We'll meet again in Rostboro
City" and he'll leave. After he leave, the guy will thank you and give you
Great Ball to show his gratitude. Now, he'll go follow the Team Magma in 
Rostboro City because they plan something evil like TEAM ROCKET. 
Once that event happens, go north and you will find another trainer. FIGHT
HIM!!


Trainer: Bugcatcher James
Pokemon Used: Nincader LVL 8
Strategies: This battle is a little bit to hard because he pokemon always
use HARDEN in which makes his POKEMOn increase its defense. Just use normal
attack on him and you'll beat him

Pokemon Trainer: MAY
Pokemon used: TREECKO LVL 7
Diffuculty: EASY
Strategies: This is no push over, Just use POUND for TREECKO and use POTIOn
if your POKEMON's health starts dropping down.

 Once you defeat MAY she will ask you to go back in town and have a rest.
So go all the way back to Littleroot Town. After going to Littleroot town,
be sure to go to your MOM and rest. After resting, go to Professor Birch's
lab to get a Pokedex. Professor Birch gave you a Pokedex because you beat
MAY. YAY ^_^! After you get the Pokedex from Prof. Birch, MAY will give
you 5 Pokeballs. She will tell you that she will find new pokemon.
(You're lucky because you're rival is not bad as Gary) After talking to her
go to Oldale town.

 Have you talked to the odd professor west of Oldale town? He was talking
about that he saw a strange footprint. Go to him and you will see that
he's not blocking the road anymore. That path leads you to Route 102.
Don't forget to buy lot's of Potions and Pokeballs!

---------
Route 102
---------
Pokemon: Treecko LVL 8, Wurmple LVL 3


 In these place, you will begin battling Pokemon trainers. Go and battle
the trainers that you will see in the road. You will be a good trainer
when you have good Pokemon. Here's the list of all the trainers you will
fight in the area and what are their Pokemon that they're using:
(after this list, we'll proceed the game!)


Trainer: Youngster Calvin
Pokemon Used: Zigzagoon LVL 5
Strategies: This is easy, just use POUND if your using Treecko or use
scratch. Use a normal attack and you will beat this Youngster!

 Zigzagoons GROWL. It will lowers your Attack!


So, let's proceed in the game, once you entered Route 102, go west,
north, be sure to get the Pecha Berry and Oran Berry in the tree.
Once you get it, head west and you should be in Petalburg City.

--------------
Petalburg City
--------------
Pokemon: Treecko LVL 10, Wurmple LVL 10


 Be sure to go first to Pokemon Center because I'm sure your
Pokemon are tired and injured. After healing your Pokemon,
go to Pokemart to purchase Potion because you will fight a GYM
leader in these city. Go North and you should find a GYM. Go
inside and you will see a GUY standing in front of the door.
Talk to him and you will learn that he's your father. Once you
talk to him, somebody will barge in. His name is Wally.
Wally is from Verdantrof City. He came to Petalburg because
he's on a vacation and want to catch a Pokemon. He wants to get
pokemon from your dad. Your dad wants to help him so he lend
his Zigzagoon to Wally and give a Pokemon. Wally will drag you
to Route 102 and watch him catch Raltz. Once he catch Raltz
he will drag you again to the gym and give back Zigzagoon to
you father. He'll thank your father and leave. Your Dad will tell
you that in order to fight him you need to get 4 badges from the
trainers. So, he'll suggest you to go to Rostboro City GYM and
fight Roxanne and get the STONE BADGE. So, head out of the gym
and go west and you should be in Route 104


---------
Route 104
---------
Pokemon: Treecko LVL 10, Wurmple LVL 5, Wingull LVL 6


 Once you are in Route 104, go west and go all the way to the north. You
should see a Tree with berries on it. Get it and head west and you will
find a trainer. Fight him.

Trainer: Richboy Winston
Pokemon Used: Zigzagoon LVL 6

Strategies: Just use normal attack on him and don't forget to use
you other pokemon cause it will level up too.

 After you beat him, go North and you will be in Petalburg Woods.

---------------
Petalburg Woods
---------------
Pokemon: Treecko LVL 11, Wurmple LVL 6, Wingull LVL 6
  Treecko LVL 11 learns QUICK ATTACK


 Be careful on this place because there are certain trainers in it. Be sure
that your well prepared. In this place you will meet your enemy. So, head
west once you entered the woods and you'll fight another Trainer again.


Trainer: Bugcatcher Lyle
Pokemon Used: Wurmple LVL 3 (6x)
Strategies: Use Wingull on Wurmple. All of his pokemon are Wurmple so It's
easily to beat him. Just use normal attacks on him and you will beat him
in no time.


 Find your way to the exit once you defeated the trainer. The exit is all the
way to the north. DOn't worry it's not hard to find it. On your way to the
north, you will see a guy looking for pokemon. Once he finished discussing
about the pokemon, a mysterious gang will appear and an event will happen.

"Prepare for trouble to make it double, To unite our world within our nation...
Meowth.. Meowth that's right!" Wait, is this TEAM ROCKET? Sorry, TEAM ROCKET
is not in the game.

So the mysterious gang is the TEAM MAGMA (Too bad, Jesse and James
is no longer your enemy.) The Team Magma want's something to the guy
that you've talked to. So the guy will tell you to fight him. So,
Fight HIM...


Trainer: Team Magma Grunt
Pokemon Used: Poochyena LVL 9
Strategies: Poochyena is a little bit hard if your pokemon's level is
 below 10. I will suggest if you use Treecko use QUICK ATTACK. Be careful
 on his attack because it will use SAND-ATTACK that makes your POKEMON's
 accuracy fell. Once you beat him, YOU WIN...

After you beat that Grunt, he'll say that "We'll meet again in Rostboro
City" and he'll leave. After he leave, the guy will thank you and give you
Great Ball to show his gratitude. Now, he'll go follow the Team Magma in
Rostboro City because they plan something evil like TEAM ROCKET.
Once that event happens, go north and you will find another trainer. FIGHT
HIM!!


Trainer: Bugcatcher James
Pokemon Used: Nincader LVL 8
Strategies: This battle is a little bit to hard because he pokemon always
use HARDEN in which makes his POKEMOn increase its defense. Just use normal
attack on him and you'll beat him
