Recommended starting Pokemon
The best type of starting Pokemon (in order) are: Water, Grass, and Fire.
In Pokemon Contest houses, you may enter your Pokemon into a contest for a chance to win a medal. However if you enter without any Porok level ups, you will have a very low chance of winning. The way to raise this is to go out and find the trees with berries on them, then press A. You will then receive 1 to 4 berries. If you now go to a Pokemon House, you will see small gray machines on the right. The empty one on the top is for multi-player. For now, find a house in a city that only has a man at the bottom. Go to the other side of the machine and press A. You will then be asked to pick a Porok (berry) and throw it in. The spinner will come down and start moving. The objective is to press A just when the spinner hits your arrow:
Circle Within A Circle: Direct hit (much faster)
Circle: Near hit (slightly faster)
X: Miss (slower )
The faster you (and your opponent) get the spinner moving, the better. Once the meter at the top hits the end, it is over and the results and the fastest RPM the spinner was moving will appear. You will then receive a Blended Porok. The level of it depends on how fast you got the machine going. The average appears to be 11. Next, open your Special Items Pocket and go to your “Pez dispenser” type item (which you must have to play the game — it is obtained from the girl in the first contest house). You will then pick a Blended Porok and feed it to a pet, making one of his Pokemon Contest stats (viewable in the Poke-Navi) go up. Some can even raise multiple stats. The more you do this, the better chance you have of winning.
Watch TV For Hints
Watch television to see commercials advertising bargains and the like. Here are some occurences to keep your eyes peeled for:
A commercial for the Mauville Game Corner. When it plays, head over there for increased prizes.
A commercial for the Lilycove Department Store. Get a discount after you see the commercial.
Pokemon sighting information. When the TV tells you a specific Pokemon is spotted, go to that location to find the monster in question.
A commercial for the Slateport City energy guy. Go to him to get energy items at a reduced price.
Once you become the Pokemon League Champion, pay extra attention to the TV. It will broadcast information about a super-rare Pokemon. After that, be on the lookout for the Latias, which is exclusive to the Sapphire version of the game.
Battle Tower Prizes
Complete tasks in the Battle Tower to earn the following prizes:
6 or more Victories:
50 Victories in a row:
100 Victories in a row:
This Pokemon is very easy to obtain, but is quite good. It is the only Bug and Ghost type Pokemon. It has 1 HP no matter how high its level, but its special power Wonder Guard makes it almost invincible. Wonder Guard protects against all attacks except for those that are super effective. For example, Bug is weak against Flying types; if someone uses a Flying type move on Shedinja, it is going to get hit. To get Shedinja, you will need a Nincada. You can catch one on Route 116. Make sure you have a free slot for a new Pokemon (Shedinja). That means you can have only five Pokemon, including Nincada. Make sure you have at least one of the type of Pokeball you used to catch Nincada with. For example, if you caught Nincada with a Great Ball, make sure you have at least one Great Ball. Get it to evolve at level 20 into a Ninjask and learns three new moves. Once you are back out to the normal screen, go to your Pokemon. You will see that you just got another Pokemon, Shedinja.
Once you are able to track down Sharpedo in your Pokedex, do whatever is necessary to capture it. It is an excellent Water/Dark Pokemon that already knows Crunch, Dark’s most powerful attack. His speed is incredible and will be of great use later in the game.
Use the following steps to capture the three mysterious Pokemon called the Regis. Go to the southeast part of Route 134 and dive into the water. It is difficult to get to due to the currents, and it is the only deep part of that route. You will find a cave. At a part of the cave, there are some Braille writing on the wall. At that point, float to the top of the water, where you will end up in a cavern. Go into the last room by going forward, use Dig, and in the next room you must do something strange. Put a Relicanth in the front of your party, and a Wailord at the last place. Walk to the top of the room and read the Brail . You will trigger an earthquake, which will unlock the Regis. You can fish up a Wailmer to evolve at level 40 at Route 122, and find a Relicanth outside Sootopolis in the underwater grass (rarely, but it is there).
To find Registeel, you can access a volcano in the southwest region of Route 120. Enter it, then move towards the center of the room. Use Fly to find Registeel.
Note: The Braille writing for catching Registeel is: “With new time, hope and love, aim to the sky in the middle”.
To find Regirock, fly to lavaridge, bop down the mountain, and enter the desert. In the southern part of the desert, you will find a cavern. Enter it, then walk up to the center tile at the top of the room. Go two steps down and two steps right. Use strength to open the passage to Regirock.
Note: The Braille writing for catching Regirock is: “Right, right, down, down. Then, use strength”.
To find Regice, in Route 105, there is an island on the west side that has a mountain on it. Go there, enter, and stand in front of the tile. Press A, read it, press A again, and do not do anything else. The door will open after 2 or so minutes, and the last Regi is yours.
Note: The Braille writing for catching Regice is : “Stop and wait. Wait for time to pass twice”.
Go to Pacifldog Town. Then, surf to the east to Route 131 until you pass the boy and girl facing each other, that are separate. You will see an opening between some rocks. Go there and surf west. Keep going and you will see a cave opening. Go through it and enter the building. Go to the top of the building to find Rayquaza. Note: On the second and fourth floors, to pass the cracks you will need get the Mach bike to go at full speed.
Note: You need to beat the champion for Sky Pillar to be reachable.
To catch Ralts, a Psychic type Pokemon, early in the game, go into the grass directly outside of Petelsburg. You must have a positive disposition to encounter this Pokemon, which means your Pokemon must be attracted to you. This early in the game, it is almost impossible for them to really like you. It is weak at first, but a powerful Psychic type Pokemon can be very useful later in the game. Found in Route 102.
Pikachu and Pinsir
Found in the Safari Zone.

This is a great Pokemon to have. It is a Water type which learns some Dragon moves and eventually Recover. Feebas does not evolve into Milotic they way a normal Pokemon does. To get Feebas to evolve, you must increase the beauty of it. To increase the beauty, it is best to use Indigo and Liteblue Pokeblocks. Save some Corn and Aguav Berries to make Pokeblocks with. Feed Feebas a number of Pokeblocks until its beauty is nearly at maximum. The next time Feebas grows another level, it will evolve into Milotic.
Other than by evolution, it can be found in New Mauville.

Get the scanner in the abandoned ship. Then, go to Slateport City. Go to the where the ferry is located and give the scanner to Mr. Stern. He will ask you to trade for his Deepseascale and the Deepsea Tooth. Choose either one of them, then give it to a Clamperl. This will raise its stats and allow it to evolve when traded. To get Gorebyss, give Clamperl the Deepseascale then trade it to a friend with a link cable. Then, have them trade it back to get Gorebyss. To get Huntail. give Clamperl the Deepseatooth and do the same thing.
Other than by evolution, it can be found in the Safari Zone.
Feebas can only be found on Route 119, and is very hard to find. Feebas only appears in six tiles on the route. The tiles are random, depending on the popular phrase you used in Dewford. Catching this Pokemon requires a lot of time and patience. However, when evolved into Milotic this Pokemon is very useful. To capture Feebas try using “Mudkip Ball” as your popular phrase in Dewford. Later it turns to “Natural Flowers”. Wait until “Natural Flowers” is the popular phrase or attempt to change it yourself. To find Feebas, get to Route 119. Start at the bottom and move north. Stop at the first little lake, immediately after the large patch of tall grass, and go as far left on the lake shore as you can. Surf, move one tile north, and fish with a Super Rod. Note: The tile locations may vary from game to game.
Other than by evolution, it can be found in the Safari Zone.

Salamence is like a fire dragon; cannot learn water attacks, but can learn Flying, Fire, and Dragon attacks.

The Two Pokemon Of The Elements
When going after the legendary representing the team of your game (Team Aqua or Team Magma), bring about 30 Ultra Balls, quite a few Revives, and at least a level 50 Pokemon. The Pokemon will be at level 45, and will be extremely difficult to catch. The only sure way to catch it is if you bring a Pokemon with a move that will freeze or paralyze it. Try as hard as you can not to kill it, but get it down to a red zone so far down that you can barely see it. Then, go mad throwing Ultra Balls at it. Do not use other Pokeballs. The will help greatly against the Elite Four and the final Gym leader.
Latios & Latias
When you get the Master Ball in Team Aqua’s/Magma’s lair, do not use it on Kyogre/Groudon. Latios and Latias will eventually appear in your game, and they are extremely difficult to catch. They will run from route to route.
Just after you finish the game, on television there will be a report about a one-of-an-kind Pokemon that is now loose in Hoenn. It will show up all over Hoenn in the grassy areas. You will only have one chance to catch it. It rarely appears. It depends on which game you are playing; Latios for Pokemon Ruby and Latias for Pokemon Sapphire.

Getting the Mental Herb!
NOTE: Before attempting this, make sure your either you’ve have passed Fortree cityand on the way to Mossdeep city (It doesn’t matter if you have done anything else you just have to be up to the part where you have passed Mossdeep city.
Firstly go to the last tree house in Fortree city, that has the guy next to it that says Sniff… You, uh…smell singed. Where you at a volcano or something? Next go to the Kid that has the Wingull next to him talk to him then talk to his Wingull (If the Wingull went when you talked to the boy its O.K.). It will fly off to Mossdeep city.

Then travel to Mossdeep City and defeat Liza and Kate then talk to this sailor, (he is outdoors.)he will say he found something rolling down the beach. He will give you a sunstone! Use the sunstone on Gloom, and he/she will evolve into bellosom.
When you start the game, you can choose 3 types:
Mudkip, type: WATER, evolves on Lv. 16 into Marshtomp, type: WATER,GROUND, evolves on Lv. 36 into Swampert, type:WATER,GROUND. It will be useful against Leader Wattson in Mauville, Leader Roxanne in Rustboro, Leader Flannery in Lavaridge, and against Leader Tate & Liza in Mossdeep.

Torchic, type: FIRE, evolves on Lv. 16 into Combusken, type: FIRE,FIGHT, evolves on Lv. 36 into Blaziken, Type:FIRE,FIGHT. It will be useful against Roxanne (when evolved).
Recommended: Mudkip, because it’s useful against much leaders, Torchic, because it’s a fire type, and those are very hard to find in the beginning.
In the beginning of the game, catch a Poochyena. It will be weak first, but if you train it enough it will become very useful against Leader Tate & Liza in Mossdeep City who uses PSICHIC moves that don’t affect DARK types, and also against the 2nd elite 4 who uses GHOST moves that are not effective against DARK types.
