=========================
1. Things You Should Know
=========================

This section is dedicated to helping you actually start the game. Most of it is
covered in the pre-game tutorial.

============
1a. Controls
============

Up, Down, Left, Right - Controls basic movement. Allows you to scroll through
      (D-Pad)           various options and such.

L and R               - Bring up the Help screens or use them in the menu.

A                     - Use this button to confirm a choice. This button will

                        be the one you'll be using the most often, because it
                        it's the button that controls all decisions.

B                     - This button is used if you want to cancel a choice. You
                        will use this button more when you obtain the Running
                        Shoes (or if you mess up a lot).

Select                - Once you get Key Items, you can set one to Select. This
                        allows you to use that item while out of battle without
                        having to open up the Start Menu each and every time.
                        Select also allows you to change the order of items in
                        your pack. Simply press Select on an item, use the

                        D-Pad to scroll through your pack, and press Select
                        again to set its new position.

Start                 - Brings up the Start Menu.

1b. Version-Exclusive Pokemon

===============
1c. What's New?
===============

This section is dedicated to pointing out brand-new things that make their
debut in this game, as well as things that have changed from the color games.
Things like the following:

1.  When one of your Active Pokemon levels up, blue lines will appear from it.
2.  If another Pokemon levels up but isn't active, its picture and new level
    will appear in the upper right corner.
3.  When you capture a Pokemon, stars will appear around the ball's center.
4.  The items now have pictures to show what they look like.
5.  When you view your Pokemon's stats, the Pokemon's icon will jump based on
    your current HP and status. Even their cries change. That's cool.
6.  After you give Celio the Sapphire, head to the Elite Four. Have fun!
7.  Text is now color-coded: blue for boys, red for girls, black for info.
8.  There's a Revive instead of a HP Up in Mt. Moon (gonna need help w/these).
9.  You can move an item from a Pokemon straight to the PC.
10. When you capture an extra Pokemon, it will tell you what Box it went to.
11. You get 600 steps instead of 500 while in the Safari Zone.
12. Elevators are now time-based. You'll be stuck there longer depending on the
    distance between selected floors.
13. You can no longer deposit into your PC anything that isn't a disposable
    Item (no Key Items, no Poke Balls of any kind, no nothing).
14. The Lapras you receive in Silph Co. is Lv.25 instead of Lv.15.
15. Revive a fossil and find that it's only Lv.5 instead of Lv.30!
16. Dragonair can now be found by fishing with the Super Rod in Safari Zone.
17. The Moon Stone in Pokemon Mansion has been moved.
18. The first question in Cinnabar Gym has been changed (for clarification).
19. The last question in Cinnabar Gym has been slightly changed.
20. Moltres now resides in Mt. Ember instead of Victory Road.
21. Indigo Plateau's Pokemon Center now has Gym music.
22. Jr. Trainers are the only Trainers from the color games that no longer
    exist. They are now called Picnicker (female) and Camper (male).
23. The Unknown Dungeon is now called "Cerulean Cave."
24. The TM/HM list copies that of Ruby and Sapphire.
25. Text for Hail damage has been changed (pelted instead of stricken).
26. When you white out, it walks you through what happens.
27. You can see items being used on your Pokemon.
28. When you load your game, it will recap recent events in case you forgot.
29. Gamblers are now called Gamers.
30. The TM and Berry pockets in your bag have been replaced with Key Items.
31. Team Rocket will vanish from Mt. Moon and Rocket Game Corner once you beat
    them there.
32. In the color games, if you had the Dig TM in your pack, the man who owned
    it will say he doesn?t need it. However, if you used it, he will continue
    to chastise Team Rocket. Not so in this game. (thanks to The Wierdo for
    changes 29-32).
33. PP remaining will change in color as you use it up.

1d. Abilities
=============

time) of 76 different Abilities (plus two you can only get through using a
cheat device, so 78 if you count that) that are designed to help it in battle.

1e. Ability: Soundproof
=======================

o------------------------------------------------o      Grasswhistle
| The Soundproof Ability negates all moves that  |      Growl
| are based on sound. It's helpful to know which |      Heal Bell
| moves fall into this category, so I've taken   |      Howl
| the liberty of composing this list of moves.   |      Hyper Voice
| Each attack listed to the right is sound-based |      Metal Sound
| and will fail if used on a Pokemon that sports |      Perish Song
| the Soundproof Ability. Although no Pokemon so |      Roar
| far can naturally have the Cacophony Ability,  |      Screech
| it works just like Soundproof. If none of the  |      Sing
| blocked moves are different, why did they      |      Snore
| exclude it? Will it be in Diamond and Pearl?   |      Supersonic

======================
1g. Special Conditions
======================

Taken from the Pokemon TCG, I use the term "Special Condition" to refer to
major status effects. These can only be inflicted one at a time.

BRN - Burn. Attack stat is cut in half. Damaged by 1/8 max HP between turns. Go
      to a Pokemon Center or use a Rawst Berry, Lum Berry, Burn Heal, Full
      Heal, or Full Restore to cure this condition.

FNT - Faint. Cannot be used in battle. Go to a Pokemon Center or use a Revive,
      Rare Candy (at Lv.99 or lower), or Max Revive to cure this condition.*

FRZ - Freeze. Cannot attack. If Flamethrower or Fire Blast is used on the
      Frozen Pokemon, said Pokemon will defrost. Also, if said Pokemon uses
      Flame Wheel or Sacred Fire, user will also defrost. May defrost after a
      random number of turns. Go to a Pokemon Center or use a Lum Berry, Ice
      Heal, Full Heal, or Full Restore to cure this condition.

PAR - Paralyze. Speed is cut by 75%, 20% chance per turn of being immobilized.
      Have the move Smellingsalt used on you, go to a Pokemon Center, or use a
      Cheri Berry, Lum Berry, Parlyz Heal, Full Heal, or Full Restore to cure
      this condition.

PSN - Poison. HP will drop by 1/16 between turns. The exception to this is if
      the PSN status is inflicted by the use of Toxic or Poison Fang, in which
      case poison damage begins at 1/16 max HP and increases between turns.
      Outside of battle, each Pokemon inflicted with the PSN status will lose 1
      HP for every four steps taken by the Trainer. Go to a Pokemon Center, or
      use a Pecha Berry, Lum Berry, Full Heal, Full Restore, or an Antidote to
      cure this condition.

SLP - Sleep. Cannot attack unless Sleep Talk or Snore is used. Will wear off in
      battle after a random amount of turns. If the SLP status is inflicted by
      use of Rest, it will wear off in two turns (one if the Pokemon has the
      Early Bird Ability). Go to a Pokemon Center, or use a Chesto Berry, Lum
      Berry, Full Heal, Poke Flute, Full Restore, or an Awakening to cure this
      condition.

* - While FNT can be considered a Special Condition, when I tell you to inflict
a Special Condition (like for catching legendaries), I do not mean to inflict
the FNT status, even though a few moves do just that (Horn Drill, for example).

=======================
1h. Evil Status Effects
=======================

These status effects are evil because there's no limit to how many you can put
on a Pokemon. To cure the evil status effects, simply switch out... if you can.
They have no abbreviations, but the list goes like this:

1. Attract.    The foe of the opposite gender falls in love with the user. As a
               result, they have a 50% chance of not attacking. Don't want to
               hurt the ones you love, right? Use the move Attract to obtain
               this effect. Wears off when the user of Attract is recalled.

2. Confuse.    The foe becomes more confused than a hungry baby at a topless
               club, which means there's a 50% that the foe will hurt itself.
               Use Swagger, Flatter, Confuse Ray, Supersonic, Confusion,
               Psybeam, or Water Pulse to obtain this effect. Will wear off
               after a random amount of turns. You may also use a Persim Berry,
               Lum Berry, Full Heal, or Full Restore to cure this condition.
               Note that you can also confuse yourself by using Petal Dance,
               Outrage, or Thrash.

3. Curse.      The foe is afflicted by a vicious curse that takes 1/4 of a
               foe's max HP between turns at a one-time cost of 50% the user's
               max HP. Have a Ghost-type use the move Curse to obtain this
               effect.

4. Disable.    The foe's last successfully performed move is disabled,
               preventing its use for a random number of turns. Use the move
               Disable to obtain this effect. Only one move can be Disabled per
               Pokemon at any given time.

5. Encore.     The last move the foe used will be repeated over 2-6 turns. Use
               the move Encore to obtain this effect.

6. Flinch.     This effect can only be seen if the Pokemon trying to obtain
               this effect is faster than its foe. The foe will retract in fear
               for one turn, preventing them from attacking. Equip a Pokemon
               with the King's Rock item or use Astonish, Bite, Extrasensory,
               Fake Out, Headbutt, Needle Arm, Rock Slide, or Sky Attack to
               obtain this effect.

7. Imprison.   The foe can no longer use moves the user knows. Use Imprison
               on a Pokemon that shares a move with your Pokemon to obtain this
               effect.

8. Seeded.     Seeds are planted on the foe's body, sucking their life away at
               a rate of 1/16 the foe's max HP between turns. Note that Grass-
               types cannot be seeded. Use Leech Seed to obtain this effect.

9. Taunted.    The foe becomes enraged, and in their blind fury can only use
               moves that cause direct damage for two turns. Use Taunt to
               obtain this effect.

10. Tormented. The Pokemon cannot use the same move twice in a row. Use the
               move Torment to obtain this effect.

10. Trapped.   The Pokemon cannot escape battle.  Most will wear off between
               3-5 turns after use. Have either the Arena Trap* or Shadow Tag
               Ability, be a Metal-type against a Pokemon with the Magnet Pull
               Ability, or use Bind, Fire Spin, Ingrain, Mean Look, Sand Tomb,
               Spider Web, Whirlpool, or Wrap to obtain this effect.

               * Flying-types, as well as those with the Levitate and Run Away
               Abilities, are not affected by Arena Trap.

1k. Frequently Asked Questions
==============================

Ha! I remembered to include it this time!

Question: IS THIS GAME IDENTICAL TO POKEMON RED AND BLUE?

  Answer: Well, not exactly. While 99% of the text, Pokemon locations, and
          Trainers are the same, tiny bits and pieces have been added (like
          names for the Trainers (Picnicker Kelsey, for example)). For more
          information on the changes that have been made, I refer you to the
          "What's New?" section.

Question: I CAN'T MAKE UP MY MIND. WHICH VERSION DO I GET?

  Answer: Get LeafGreen. If you don't have anyone to trade with, LeafGreen can
          net you the most complete Pokedex. And besides, LeafGreen has all the
          cool Pokemon anyway (like Ninetales. If you disagree, you are wrong).

Question: I DON'T HAVE FIRERED/LEAFGREEN. WHAT POKEMON AM I LOSING OUT ON?

  Answer: See section 1b, "Version-Exclusive Pokemon."

Question: I WANT 184 RARE CANDIES, MAX REVIVES, AND MAX ELIXIRS!

  Answer: Too bad. No glitch from the original games works in the new versions,
          including the one that let you get Mew. Nintendo made sure of that
          (even moved a Gambler (Gamer) to be absolutely certain).

Question: CAN I GET MY OLD [Pokemon] BACK FROM [Pokemon game for GB{C}]?

  Answer: No, you can't. As of this game's release, you can get every Pokemon
          back except Mew (unless you've got Pokemon Emerald and the ticket
          that lets you get to "World's Edge Island" where Mew resides) and
          Celebi (unless you trade it from someone who has the JP Colosseum
          Bonus Disc in which you get Celebi). Most Pokemon from Johto are
          found in Pokemon Colosseum, which can also connect to Pokemon Ruby &
          Sapphire. You can connect this game to Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire, but
          not right away; you have to beat the Elite Four and complete a
          certain quest first. You also can't have any series 2 (152-251) or
          series 3 (252-386) Pokemon until you beat the Elite Four.

Question: MOM WON'T BUY THIS GAME FOR ME. LINK ME TO THE ROM!

  Answer: Nah...

Question: FISHING IN RUBY & SAPPHIRE SUCKED! DO THEY KEEP THE SAME METHOD?

  Answer: Actually, no! True to the original, simply use the rod to fish.

Question: MY POKEMON STOPS EVOLVING, BUT I DIDN'T PRESS B! WHAT'S GOING ON?

  Answer: Your Pokemon has a friendship-based evolution, and if it were to
          evolve, your Pokedex would go haywire and explode because it doesn't
          know what your new Pokemon is. To stop this from happening, beat the
          Elite Four and have at least 70 Pokemon owned in your Pokedex to get
          the National Pokedex, which allows entries for all 386 Pokemon. After
          that, just level up.

Question: DO THE BUTTON-PRESSING TRICKS FOR CATCHING POKEMON STILL WORK?

  Answer: They never worked. Nintendo has confirmed that there are no existing
          "tricks" for catching Pokemon. Press all the buttons you want when
          the Poke Ball is being thrown and you can press A and B 500 times for
          all I care. It won't get you anywhere.

Question: WHAT STARTER SHOULD I PICK? WHICH IS THE EASIEST/HARDEST TO RAISE?

  Answer: Professor Oak's got that area covered. Bulbasaur's the easiest to
          raise, because the first two Gyms get thrashed by it, and it evolves
          to its final form the earliest. Squirtle takes a little more time
          than Bulbasaur, but has an easy time against the first Gym, but a
          hard time with the second. Charmander takes the longest to raise and
          has weak attacks for most of its technique-learning life, and gets
          the crap stomped out of it by the first two Gyms. You'll need
          assistance if you pick her.

Question: WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY "COLOR GAMES" AND "METAL GAMES?"

  Answer: Red and Blue (colors), Gold and Silver (metals).

Question: ALT + 130 FOR 額

  Answer: Yeah, I know. It's just that some browsers out there can't see it,
          and no one really cares anyway. "Pokemon" is just fine.

Question: I'M POOR! WHAT'S A FAST WAY TO GET MONEY?

  Answer: If you've defeated the Elite Four at least once, the best spot for
          earning cash is near Selphy's house at Resort Gorgeous, by far.
          Position yourself on the western beach so Jacki (far left), Destin
          (top), Gillian (center), and Celina (below Gillian) are all visible,
          then use the VS Seeker. Assuming all four want to battle, defeating
          them will get you 21,368 money. Activate the Amulet Coin in the four
          battles for a total of 42,736 money. After that, take your 100 steps
          (it should only be around 60 since you have to walk to each person)
          and use the VS Seeker again. You can have over 500,000 money in less
          than thirty minutes. How cool is that?

          Don't have the Amulet Coin? It's upstairs in the building connecting
          Cycling Road and Celadon City. You must have at least 40 Pokemon
          owned in the Pokedex, so make sure you meet that requirement.

Question: THEY TOLD ME MY POKEMON HAS POKERUS. WHAT IS THAT?

  Answer: You have been graced with the most awesome thing since the invention
          of held items, the Pokerus. Pokerus is shown as PKRS on the Summary
          Screen (and only there), and you can find it where a Special
          Condition would normally be shown (it'll only appear if there is no
          Special Condition). What it does is double EV points given from a
          particular battle. For example, for every Diglett your Pokemon
          slaughters, it gets 1 point in Speed. If the slaughterer is infected
          with PKRS, it would receive double the points, or 2. Now let's say
          that this certain Pokemon is equipped with the Macho Brace for double
          points again, or 4. This means that Diglett will give you 4 Speed
          points every time you kill it. Assuming all you run into is Diglett,
          and you always kill it in one shot, it would take you about 20-30
          minutes to complete Speed EV training.

Question: POKERUS EQUALS GREAT... BUT THERE HAS TO BE A CATCH, RIGHT?

  Answer: All good things must come to an end. The same holds true for PKRS.
          After about three days (sometimes less), the PKRS will vanish. Those
          that were already infected with PKRS cannot be infected again.
          However, there is a way to preserve your PKRS: Simply get someone you
          generally don't really care about (in my case, a Lv.5 Pichu, which
          will be how I refer to the sucker you infect), and infect them with
          PKRS. Drop it in the Box (mark it with all four marks so you can
          easily find it) and let it sit there forever. It won't infect your
          Box Pokemon, but the PKRS won't leave, either. Whenever you have
          someone new to infect, bring out Pichu and infect the new guy. Once
          that's done, drop it off again. It's usually helpful to infect
          multiple Pichu so you don't ever have to worry about the PKRS
          mysteriously running out on you.

Question: HOW DO I INFECT MY OTHER POKEMON?

  Answer: Simply keep a healthy Pokemon on your team along with the one with
          PKRS. The healthy Pokemon will eventually become infected (and so
          will your whole team).

Question: I COULDN'T GET TO A WONDERSPOT MACHINE. HOW DO I GET DEOXYS?

  Answer: Like I said before, if you don't have a friend who has one and you
          didn't get one of your own, you *have* to cheat to get it.

Question: WHERE DO I GET A DRAGON SCALE?

  Answer: Beat Double Mode in the Trainer Tower on Seven Island (once). You can
          also get it on the way to Ruin Valley. Simply Surf to the right and
          go as far down as you can (thanks to The Wierdo for this tip).


Question: HOW DO I GET TO FOUR, FIVE, SIX, AND SEVEN ISLAND?

  Answer: You need the Rainbow Pass, which is given to you by Celio. He will
          fork it over after you have the National Pokedex. If you don't have
          it, get 70 owned in your Pokedex and go see Professor Oak.

Question: I BEAT THE ELITE FOUR. WHERE IS LORELEI?

  Answer: She's in the back of Icefall Cave. You'll need Waterfall to get to
          her, and the HM to use it is found in the cave. If none of your
          Pokemon can learn Waterfall, catch a Pokemon there. Most can learn
          it.

Question: WHERE IS THE KEY ITEM 'TEA?'

  Answer: First floor of Pokemon Mansion, talk to the old lady.

Question: HOW DO I GET THE MYSTERYTICKET? I WANT A LUGIA/HO-OH!

  Answer: I don't know, stop asking me. We don't have a legitimate means to get
          the Mysteryticket yet, so quit e-mailing me about it!

Question: HOW DID YOU GET POLIWAG, FLAREON, ETC. BEFORE VIRIDIAN FOREST?

  Answer: I'm surprised you guys can't figure this out. This is what I did.
          I started playing LeafGreen with a completely different team than
          what you see (what you see is my second playthrough team). I took six
          Pokemon, and bred them so I got babies with good natures. I taught
          them some TMs and attached them with cool items (like other TMs and
          the Master Ball). Then I traded them all to a FireRed game. After
          that, I started a new game in LeafGreen. After gaining the ability to
          trade, I caught six Pidgey/Rattata off of Route 1, then traded them
          to FireRed in exchange for the six babies I bred in my previous game
          of LeafGreen. Tada, Lv.5 beatdown squad.

Got an idea for a question? E-mail me and I'll consider it.

=====================================
2. New Beginnings and the First Badge
=====================================

Major Objectives
----------------

* Get acquainted with the controls of the game.
* Meet Professor Oak and receive a Pokemon.
* Meet the professor's grandson, and have your first battle with him.
* Travel through Viridian Forest.
* Earn your first Badge.

Okay, so you're ready to begin your adventure. Begin by turning on your GBA
[SP] and watch the intro screen, re-done (the old one was better, in my
opinion). After you press Start on the title screen, you'll see a few screens
that explain the buttons "in the order of their importance." Then you'll see a
couple screens that's like a pep talk of sorts to get you raring to go on your
new adventure. After this, Professor Oak will introduce himself and Pokemon.

First off, you'll need to tell the professor if you're [going to be playing as
a] male or female. After selecting a gender, you will be prompted to name
yourself. After this, Professor Oak will introduce his grandson and prompt you
to name him. Do so. I called him Gary. And I don't want to hear any "BUT THAT
ISNT HIS NAME U NUB" nonsense. I know that already. For the sake of the game,
I'm going to refer to that young man from here on out as Gary. Don't like it?

-----------------------------> TOO BAD.  (Lv.16) -> Ivysaur    (Lv.32) -> Venusaur
Squirtle   -> (Lv.16) -> Wartortle  (Lv.36) -> Blastoise
Charmander -> (Lv.16) -> Charmeleon (Lv.36) -> Charizard

Bulbasaur's line is all Grass/Poison, and Squirtle's is pure Water. Charmander
and Charmeleon are both pure Fire, but gains a Flying type when Charmeleon
evolves.

After choosing your starter, you'll get to name it. Joyous day.

Gary's starter depends on yours. If you pick Bulbasaur, he'll take Charmander.
If you choose Charmander, he'll want Squirtle, and if you decide on Squirtle,
he opts for Bulbasaur. Now that you're both in possession of your first
Pokemon, everyone's happy, and you've unlocked the Pokemon sub-menu. Press
Start to look at it.

Now might be a good idea to save your game.

When you try to leave, Gary will challenge you to a fight.
