Pokemon HeartGold / SoulSilver Glitches

  • Buena's Password, swarm, and lottery regeneration

    Entry location: Anywhere
    If the password, swarm and lottery number is the same as the previous day, there is a problem with the system. When that happens, either battle someone, catch or trade a pokemon, or find an item. Just saving in a different place doesn't work.

  • Early Fossil

    Entry location: Ruins of Alph
    Before you are able to this, you will need the violet City gym badge. Once you have it, go through the North West exist and speak tho the chubby guy at the far end, he will give you HM6 . Now teach 1 of your Pokemon Rock Smash, (best choice for this is Onix.. receive from trade in Violet city for a Bellsprout )once a pokemon has learned Rocksmash, head south of the guy that you received HM6 into the Ruins of Alph. You will immediately see rocks that are breakable (behind the rock to the far west is a rare candy).. there is a high possibility the you will receive a max revive or max ether, or if u r really lucky a fossil or amber.

    Once you have broken all of these rocks do not return to the Ruins of Alph street, instead walk down until you are face to face with the ruin south of the rocks you just broke, them walk west, you should walk right through the ruin and into the opening behind it. there is a high chance that you will receive an old amber from these 2 rocks. if you don't receive anything, retry. ( It is possible 2 receive multiple fossil, as well at the old amber)
    NOTE: Dome Fossils are exclusive to SS and Helix Fossils are exclusive to HG

  • Strongest Possible Attack

    Entry location: Double Battle
    Although the circumstances would be nearly impossible, a level 100 Shuckle can potentially deal the most damage in one single attack through the use of numerous stat boosters, having the defense stat the absolute highest, by using Helping Hand, Metronome held item, Power Trick, a Skill Swap to Pure Power or Huge Power, and the Defense Curl/Rollout combo. Also, Shuckle's partner must have the ability Flower Gift and the weather must be sunny. On the 5th impact of Rollout, if used against a level 1 Ledyba or Yanma that have been hit with negative Defense modifiers (such as Screech), it can deal 213,896,052 damage with a critical hit.

  • Catch a Ditto

    Entry location: Route 47
    You need to have a few things before you can access this hint:
    -a pokemon that can use surf and waterfall
    -the rising badge
    -access to Route 47

    First, go to Cianwood City. Then, enter the cave that takes you to Route 47. Follow the path until you reach a cave. Inside, you should see two ladders, and a man who tells you some cryptic metaphor about diverging paths. Take the ladder on the right, the one that goes down. In the new chamber, run to the exit due south of you. You should be standing on a small beach at the base of a cliff. Use surf, and then surf to the left and up into a channel between two cliffs. You should see a waterfall. Go up to it, use waterfall, and surf forward a bit farther once you are at the top. You should see a tiny alcove on your right with a patch of grass. Land there, and go into the grass. They are quite abundant in this grass patch, and hover around the 30-35 level range.

  • F.E.A.R. Rattata/Tailow

    Have 2 rattatas/tailows that know Quickattack. Keep breeding them until one Rattata/Tailow has Endeavor. Give it a Focus Sash. Keep it at level 1. During battle, the enemy will almost always strike first with their superior speed, but with Focus Sash, your pokemon can still live with 1HP. Then use Endeavor. Now the enemy pokemon will be at 1 hp also. Use Quick Attack to finish off the opponent and bewilder the other trainer.
    This is best used for Wi-Fi battles as storymode will level up your rattata/tailow.
