GBA | Submitted by pokemonmysterydungeofan01How to trade with Ruby/Sapphire
First, complete the cinnaber island gym and Bill will be outside. Talk to him and say yes. Then you'll go to one island. Go into the big pokemon center and you will see a machine. Talk to the man and he'll tell you find the ruby gem. Go to fire place and battle team rocket. It might take a bit of time for team rocket to battle you so take your chances. After you beat them go inside the cave and explore and you will eventually find the ruby gem. Go back to the pokemon center and give it to the guy by the machine and he lets you go back to Kanto. Defeat the last gym leader (in Viridian city) and defeat the pokemon league. Go back to one island and I think you talk to the guy by the machine. Then go to six island and run to the ruin valley and the dotted hole. The braille reads cut so use cut on the entrance. Then get the instruction booklet you got when you got this game and go to page 61 and translate the braille. Then you find the other gem but a scientist steals it and go to the meadow on five island and go around all the islands until you find the two passwords and then open the door of the lab in the meadow. Battle team rocket and eventually you'll find the gem. Go back to the pokemon center and give the gem to the guy. Then you will be able to trade with ruby/sapphire.

GBA | Submitted by supercheat1234How to Beat the Gym Leaders
No.1 Brock.The best option would be if you picked bulbasaur or squirtle as your starter.Either of the 2 can take out Geodude+Onix.
No.2 Misty.If you have picked Bulbasaur as your starter this should be an easy ride. If you picked Squirtle or Charmander then I recomend catching a Pikachu in virdian forest then raising it up to about lv 21/22 and it should be able to beat her.
No.3 Lt.Surge.By the time you have reached vermillion city you should have been through a cave and caught a Geodude, so raise it up about 20-30 levels and you should be able to claim the thunder badge.
No.4 Erika.A Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard will easily do the job.Water/Grass pokemon will struggle but a Pidgeyotto/Golbat can beat her with gust/Wing attack.
No.5 Sabrina.Golbat's Bite attack will easily defeat her.
No.6 Koga.Graveler/Golem can defeat his pokemon with magnitude/earthquake.
No.7 Blaine.Water pokemon can beat him hands down so a level 39-48 Blastoise will do the trick.
No.8 Giovanni.The last,and most powerful gym leader,Giovanni uses Ground types so Water/Grass pokemon will claim your final badge.
Now you have 8 Gym badges and are ready to challenge the elite four.

To get Raikou, Entei, and Suicune you need to have completed the Pokemon League. You only get one and it depends on which starter u chose. If you chose Squirtle you get Raikou. If u chose Charmander you get Suicune. If you chose Bulbasaur you get Entei. Yo would be best to save your masterball for these guys. They are really good and are very hard to encounter. Good Luck!
GBA | Submitted by Ashley (Pokemon Master)How to make a Poke'ball into a Masterball
When you find a wild Pokemon (any pokemon) You go to your bag and click Poke'ball.(Plain Poke'balls only!)Then when the Poke'ball is about to fly out you hold down the buttons A and B together.Then when the Poke'ball is about to open and catch the Pokemon you hold down SELECT and B together and the Poke'ball should become a Masterball...(Doesn't get a Master'ball look but it catches Pokemon 100% of the time!!)
Note: After many complaints about this cheat not working, this update was submitted by an anonymous user. Hope it helps! (ed.):
"It said to press and hold A and B then push select and B but you really have to push and hold A and B then hold select and A. we would be happy if you fix this error so that other gamers can enjoy this cheat properly."
