Glitches – Hints – Tricks – Secrets
Press A + B + Start + Select during game play.
Clone your Pokemon with holding item
- First, you should have the Pokemon which you want to clone in your Pokemon team.
- Fly to BATTLE FRONTIER and go to BATTLE TOWER. Go to the PC in the Tower and deposite the Pokemon you will clone, then save the game.
- Next, withdraw it and talk to the lady who lets you go to MULTI LINK BATTLE in the last roll. Choose OPEN LEVEL and select 3 Pokemon.
- When she asks you to save the game before entering, say YES, it will stop for a few seconds, and when the screen shows to overwrite the game, say NO, then turn the game off. Now turn it on again, you will see that you’re in front of the MULTI LINK lady.
- Check in your team and you will find that the Pokemon that you want to clone is in your team and another one is in the box that you deposited in the Pokemon that you cloned. Very useful for getting: more 1-off items, like the Master Ball and TMs, without trading; berries, especially if your internal battery is dry; more money; more pokemon available to trade, so you can complete the Hoenn Dex and get a Jhoto Starter! I did this and got 999 rare candies and 999 master balls. I never run out.
Level Up Unhatched Pokemon
To do this glitch, you must first execute the Pomeg Berry Glitch, which is done by using a Pomeg Berry on a Pokemon with 1 or 2 HP so that its HP loops to 65,535 (displayed as ?35 in-game). Do so, however, with only one Pokemon and an Egg in the party, with the Egg in the top-leftmost slot of the party in the Pokemon menu. After executing the glitch, you will now be able to enter battles and use the Pokemon Egg as if it were a normal Pokemon. It will function as a normal Pokemon – you can view the stats it will have upon hatching, it can level-up by beating Pokemon, it can learn new moves, it can even evolve. This means that you can alter the Pokemon inside the Egg in otherwise-illegitimate ways. For example. Pikachu cannot normally know Thunder when hatching from an Egg at Level 5; through this glitch, Pikachu can. Similarly, you can hatch Eggs with fully-evolved Pokemon such as Typhlosion, Meganium, and so on, inside.
Getting more Master Balls (it works best with Ultra Ball)
This hint works with: Poke Ball, Great Ball, Net Ball, Dive Ball (some times) and Ultra Ball! If you make a mistake, it will break. Okay now lets git on with it when throw the ball and it opens hit ab and whenever it bounces ab when it stops bouncing wait (tricky part) then when it moves ab and when it is going to spark ab (note you press ab at the same time). This trick works about 90% of all time!
Save your master ball
Here is a tip, save your masterball and you will be happy. you can clone at battle frontier and you get that after beating the elite four. just get the ss tidal ticket and go to slateport or lilycove harbor and go to the other town. you will see scott on the ship and he will tell you about battle frontier and just take the boat again to go there. if you give a pokemon the masterball then clone it a couple times(which i posted)you will be able to catch all the legendaries(besides the other Lati@s) there are rayquazza,groudon,kyogre, Latias or Latios,Regirock,RegiIce,and Registeel. You will need a total of 8 masterballs(1 extra so that you dont use up your last one then not have any more).
Pomeg Berry Glitch
For this glitch to work properly, you must have a Pomeg Berry and a Pokemon who has not had their HP lowered as much as possible already through Pomeg Berries. (If the latter is the case, the use of HP Ups on the Pokemon will suffice.) Get the Pokemon to a severely low level of HP (1 or 2 HP). Once you do so, in the field, use the Pomeg Berry on the Pokemon. This will in turn cause the data in their HP to cycle back to the top of the counter, giving the affected Pokemon 65,535 HP – over 90 times the otherwise possible maximum in the game.
How to catch a Relicanth easily
To catch a Relicanth easily, dive around Sootopolis City and move around the underwater plants just outside. Of course, you could just wait for a Relicanth to come out on its own, but occasionally, if your volume is turned up, you will hear the cry of a Pokemon. Stop as soon as you hear it and go back to where you were when you heard the noise, search around that area and if you were quick enough, a Relicanth should appear straight away.
Easy Feebas II
Try changing the trendy phrase in Dewford Town REFRESHING HERO, then fly to Fortree City. Go left to Route 119 and go down to the place that you can SURF below the bridge. Go to the left of the platform, SURF, go out 1 step/box, and up 2 steps/boxes and while facing up, fish with the Super Rod.
How to get a dragon scale
You can steal a dragon scale (using thief or convert) from some wild bagons you can encounter these pokemon inside meteor falls after you ride up the waterfall.
Fast Way To Hatch Eggs
To hatch eggs fast you need to find a sandy slope. When you get to the slope attempt to walk up it, you’ll notice that u will fall back down. Plug ur system into the charger and place something on the a button so you are going up-down-up-down on the slope. Leave your system for about 3 hours and when you get back walk away from the slope and your egg will very soon hatch.
Attach EXP Share. Put the Pokemon you want to gain experience in front of party, then fight someone. When the battle starts, switch it out for a better Pokemon.
At the start of the game, train your starter in the grasses from Littleroot Town to where you fight your rival for your first time.
Fight the Elite Four three times a day.
Fight all of the trainers that have a Poke thing next to their name.
Fight all of the gym leaders again.
Whenever you want to catch a wild Pokemon, you should first get one of your Pokemon to use moves such as Leer, Growl, and Flash. This will weaken your opponent. Attacking it might also help, but make sure that you do not defeat it. Also bring many Pokeballs with you.
Mirage Island is an invisble Island located on Route 130. Most of the time it will be invisible but on rare cases, the island will be visible. To find out if the island is there or not, go to Pacifidlog Town and talk to the old man in the bottom right house looking out the window. He will tell you wheter the island is there or not. The cause is unknown so a bit of luck is needed to find it. On the island you will find the rare Leichi Berry that powers up your Pokemon’s attack in battle when it gets weak. In the grass, you will only find Wild Wynauts.
Faster hatching eggs
Simply put a pokemon with the ability Flame Body or Magma Armor on your team to cut the amount of steps needed to hatch an egg in half.
If you want some cash, go to these spots:
Go north at Mauville city, then search where you can rock smash. Go up and you see a reporter. Fight them and you get some cash.
Still in Mauville, go east and surf at the sea. Go to another land. you see a reporter. Fight them.
Go to Fortee city, go east until you leave fortee city. You see a reporter. Fight them too.
You can do it as much as you can until it’s enough. NOTE: After you fight them,go to a house with TV near the reporter place, and continue to next step.
This cheat really works. Gold poke’blocks increase every contest stat. eg. beauty, toughness and smartness. It raises them heaps. This cheat will take time. Anyway when you beat the elite four and when your in your bedroom the T.V might be on. Click A on it and see what the news says. If it says the Berry Master is coming to Lilycove to mix berries in: (whatever days) Go their when it has been that amount of days and he should be their. Mix berries with him and if you get heaps of perfects you will make a GOLD POKEBLOCK. Anyway, if the T.V doesnt say that the berry master is coming and another event is happening do the elite four until it does say. Note: keeps collecting berries that way you can make heaps.
Tip on winning contests easily
If you are going to enter a pokemon contest, give your pokemon a pokeblock and it will have a better chance of winning.
Walking On Water
When you are about to go to the Team Aqua Hideout Underwater try getting to the entrance as close as possible without entering the cave then dive up and you’ll be suprised that you are walking on water i used my bike before. NOTE: Might take a couple of tries.
Get the Mental Herb
In one of the treehouses in Fortree City is a man with a Wingull. Talk to the Wingull, and it will fly off out of the treehouse. When you get to Mossdeep City, you will see a person with a Wingull. Talk to it and it will fly off as well. Then go back to Fortree City and into the treehouse where you talked to the first Wingull. Talk to the man next to the Wingull, and he will give you the Mental Herb, and item which is a hold item that prevents attraction on the Pokemon that is holding it.
Battle Steven, the former champion.
After beating the Elite Four, a new part of Meteor Falls opens up. It is in the northwestern corner where you found Iron Tail. A new cave was made and you’ll find Steven in it. His Pokemon are in the high 70’s.
Suction cups/Sticky hold’s second ability
If a poke’mon in your party has suction cups/sticky hold as an ability, then you will have an easier time fishing for wild poke’mon.
Inherit Pokemon Natures through breeding.
To do this you need an Everstone. To get one, search in Granite Cave for a lone rock on top of a plateau. Once you get an Everstone, let the a Ditto or a female Pokemon that you are breeding hold on to it. Once you receive and hatch the eggs, the offspring will have a 50% chance of inheriting the Nature from the Pokemon holding the Everstone.
To unlock mystery gift, go to a pokemon mart and press A on the piece of paper on the counter. Then insert the words LINK TOGETHER WITH ALL. Press select to easily find the words. After this the store lady will talk to you and tell you that mystery gift is now unlocked.
Synchronize’s second ability
If you have a poke’mon with synchronize as an ability, you will encounter more poke’mon with the same nature as the poke’mon with sychronize. Note that the poke’mon with this ability must be in the front of your party.
Where to get a Ditto
Once you have gotten one of the fossils from Mirage tower, and I think after you defeat the elite four, go to fallabor and visit the Fossil guy’s house. In the back of the house you’ll find the entrance to a c-ave…in it you’ll find the fossil you didn’t chose, AND dittos!
Static’s secondary effect
If you have a pokemon with the Static ability in the front of your party, it increases the chance of finding a wild electric type pokemon. This is EXTREMELY useful for finding rare electric types, like Pikachu in the Safari Zone.
Swarm’s second ability
The Pokemon ability Swarm has 2 effects. It raises Bug-type attacks by 150% when the user is weak, and, new to Emerald, it makes pokemon cry in the background more often. For example, in caves outside of battle, you will hear a Pokemon screech more often.
Learn Volt Tackle
You must have: Pikachu (Male OR Female, or both), Raichu (Male OR Female, or both), Ditto, if you don’t have a Male or Female, A Light Ball. First, get a Light Ball by catching Pikachu in the Safari Zone. This is rare, so be patient. After you get it, put in the two inductees (preferably 2 Pikachus, since you must’ve captured thousands by now) and make sure one of them has a Light Ball. After you get the egg, hatch it into a Pichu. It’ll know Volt Tackle, the Electric-type Double-Edge.
More EXP From EXP Share
To get extra EXP from EXP share, put the pokemon holding EXP share at the front of your party and it will receive 3/4 of the total EXP from the battle.
Getting Latias Or Latios
After you defeat the Elite Four, go to your house and watch the television downstairs. After you watch it, your mom will ask you what color the Pokemon is. If you say Red, you will find Latias. If you say Blue, it will be Latios.
Getting the other Lati
To get the other Lati (Latios or Latias), Mix Records with a Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire game that used the Eon Ticket. You can then get to a hidden island via the SS Tidal where you can find the Lati you didn’t choose.
Every time you encounter a pokemon you have a 1/8192 chance of the pokemon being a different color, this is called a shiny pokemon
