You can now return to Sandgem town. If you head north and to the west on Route 202, you’ll spot the Professor’s pal in the grass. They’ll demonstrate how to catch wild Pokemon, and give you 5 Pokeballs to start with. (You can buy more at the Pokemart if you need them). Now’s the time to catch some more pokemon and add to your burgeoning ranks!

Starly - Levels 2-4 - Common
Bidoof - Levels 2-4 - Common

Starly - Levels 2-4 - Common
Bidoof - Levels 2-4 - Common
Shinx - Levels 3-4 - Common
Kricketot - Levels 3-4 - Uncommon (Nocturnal)

None of these Pokemon are particularly difficult to find and/or catch, though it should be noted that Kricketot only shows up in the early morning and late night. You’ll also encounter a few opponents on Route 202, so take some time to build your levels up a bit. Kricketot might be more difficult to level up due to his initially slow attack, so you might opt to make him your default pokemon, then switch him out for a stronger fighter once battle begins. Also, try to find a Shinx with the Intimidate ability, which lowers enemy attack immediately after Shinx’s deployment. Even if you don’t plan on making Shinx a party staple, it’s a helpful skill to have at this point early on.


Jubilife town is a fairly large place, home to a TV broadcast station, a Pokemon School, and a company manufacturing devices called “Poketch.” If you talk to people around town, you’ll hear something about being able to win a Poketch, but first, you’ll need to drop by the Pokemon School. Defeat the students’ pokemon in battle, and talk with your friend again. Give him the package and he’ll find two Town Maps inside of it, one of which he’ll give to you. (Select and use it on the Bag screen to look at it.)

A man will spot you and instruct you to go speak with 3 clowns for the Poketch contest. The clowns are located outside the Poketch company, in front of the TV station, and around the area of the Pokemart. They’ll ask you trivia questions, all of which should be incredibly obvious. Score 3 correct answers and go back to the man you spoke to earlier to receive the Poketch! Feel free to mess around with it a bit – it doesn’t have many functions yet, but you’ll earn more as the game progresses.

Above: It's like a game-show. Answer this clown's question and win a beautiful Poketch. If your Price is Right, that is

Also, you may encounter a TV reporter hanging around who wants to interview you. There are several of these reporters throughout the game. Doing the interview doesn’t affect anything super-important, it’s just a fun diversion.

    if u take mesprit down to minimal health it wil stay like that and wont recover, so if u get it that far and then use the map in the pokewatch to see it move around on the map moving between routes moves it around the map so if u find a spot where it goes and move between 2 routes u can gradually manuever it to ure area, once its there u can run around the grass and find it usually pretty easily, and since uve already taken its health down u just need to focus on catching it. After using mean look or arena trap effects and can sit a powerful pokemon out front and keep healing it while throwing as many ultra balls as u can if u follow this its pretty easy to capture it only took me a couple o attempts to do this nd not too long using level 50-60's Gd Luck
  • MandyGirl - February 27, 2009 6:13 a.m.

I was walking towards the valley windworks entrance. and it just appeared in front of me. not on the grass, just in my pathway. i was actually quite shocked. it is the only pokemon that i have seen just appear out of nowhere.hope that helps, i have only seen and captured it once!
  • karolab - February 4, 2009 12:51 p.m.

    disregard last question, found out how.
  • karolab - February 4, 2009 5:33 a.m.

    can someone tell me where the heck I can find # 65 pokemone, driploom i think is its name, it is the last one I need to see to be able to get my dex. thanks
  • dynomit272 - December 28, 2008 6:56 p.m.

    For Page 27 readers When trying to catch Mesprit, you may want to try using a move like Mean Look to make sure it cant escape or using a Pokemon like Trapinch from Ruby or Sapphire which has the ability "Arena Trap" so wild Pokemon cant escape from battle without making your Pokemon faint first. Hope they help!
  • chrispokemastermancityfan - August 19, 2009 6:16 a.m.
