    Frequently Asked Questions
    Q: I tried to release my Pokemon, but it said it was worried about me. What does that mean and how do I make it stop?
    A: It means the Pokemon is the last one you have that has that HM move. Just teach a different one that HM move.

    Q: Where is the move deleter?
    A: In Lilycove City in one of the houses near the Dept. Store.

    Q: Can I trade with Fr/Lg/Colo/XD?
    A: Ruby and Sapphire can trade with these games as soon as trading is possible, as long as you have completed the requirements in the other game. Emerald must get the national dex by beating the Elite 4 in order to trade with these games, and the requirements of the other game must be met. You can't get any Eggs or non-Hoenn Pokemon in Emerald before beating the Elite 4.

    Q: How do I clone in the 3rd generation?
    A: Check the Cloning in Emerald thread.

    Q: When are Latias/Latios's attributes (nature, IV's, shininess, etc) set?
    A: In Emerald, they're set as soon as you tell your mom that it's red or blue from the TV. In Ruby and Sapphire, it's set when you watch the news broadcast after the E4 (thanks to Nidogod for that piece). But be warned, due to a glitch in the programming, any "running" Pokemon in the 3rd generation will likely have 4-5 IV's as 0 or 1.
    Note: Not all versions of Emerald are affected by this glitch. Some are and some aren't; you'll probably just have to test it on your particular one to see.

    Do you have a good website to help or think that a particular question belongs in the FAQ? Send me a PM or profile message and I'll take a look.

    If your question's not here (and belongs in this thread), ask away!



    (The following has been added in by the edit-ninja bobandbill)



    Thought it might be an idea to take every question asked so far not covered above in the FAQ/links, list it here, and provide the answer as well, OR a link to the post that answers it (so this remains under the character limit easily). So now you can look in the first post here to see every question asked so far - chances are one you want to ask has already been asked and answered.

    CHECK THE LINKS ABOVE FIRST IF THE QUESTION IS NOT BELOW!

    Also, for an easy-to-find way for a certain question, use the Ctrl+F function.

    Wait, you actually can get non-hoenn Pokémon before national dex in Emerald!?!?

    Is there a list of important things and Pokemon I should migrate to D/P or trade to R/S before starting over? I already migrated the 3 Golems, Latios, the three legendary mascots for R/S/E, and transferred my Master Ball to Sapphire. Is there anything else I should move that's in Emerald?

    *just reread that* uh, I might have been confused with D/P, but if anyone can test it, I'd appreciate it a lot.

    Hmm, well, do you have FrLg and Colo/XD? If not, you should transfer over every Pokemon not obtainable in RS (ones like Smeargle, Ditto, the new Safari Zone Pokemon, etc.), plus use up and spare BP and Tutors you have.

    I don't know D/P items but in emerald you can have an easy access to frontier items(Brightpowder, leftovers, scope lens etc.)

    The only Pokemon not yet named that are available in RSE but not DP are the 3rd gen starters. Don't know if you already had access to all three or not.

    This is a solid thread. It's a shame that the people who ask simple questions won't be reading it before making their own thread.

    Has anyone ever determined exactly how many times you can redistribute the EON Ticket through mixing records?
    Previously i've seen some say that it is hundreds, and then looking through one of those thread links, others say it is only possible to do several times. I was wondering if anyone had a more definitive answer, since no-one seemed to be certain about this ':<

    About Emerald, I think you were supposed to be able to unlock the National 'dex pre-E4 by simply trading a non-Hoenn Pokémon to it, from Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald. It's been too long since I last went through, but I seem to remember doing this myself.
    I can't restart my game to confirm though, too much I need to do beforehand ;/

    (Semi-pointless sidenote - there's a typo in "Ticket", in the E-Reader/EON Ticket/Mystery Gift help link.. Just thought i'd point that out... x3 *fussy*)

    About the Emerald trading thing:
    If you are trading with Ruby/Sapphire + Emerald, these are the requirements for getting National Dex Pokemon:
    Ruby/Sapphire -Trade any Pokemon from Colosseum/XD/FireRed/LeafGreen/Emerald(After receiving National Dex)

    FireRed/LeafGreen -Once National Dex is obtained, you can trade any Pokemon (001-386)from another FireRed/LeafGreen version. Once the in-game requirements have been met, you can trade with a Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald version. To get a Hoenn Pokemon after you get the National Dex but before you can trade with Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, trade a Pokemon from Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald to a separate FireRed/LeafGreen version that has met the in-game requirements, then trade it to the original FireRed/LeafGreen version to get one.

    Emerald -Eggs and National Dex Pokemon cannot be traded from any other Gen 3 games until the National Dex has been obtained in Emerald. However, you can trade any Pokemon from any game in the Hoenn dex as soon as you can trade. For instance, you can trade a Tentacool from FireRed/LeafGreen to Emerald because Tentacool is in the Hoenn Dex. Any Pokemon can be traded to Emerald before you get the National Dex as long as the Pokemon you're trading is in the Hoenn dex.

    I have a link cable and access to 2 Gameboys, so if there's anything else about trading, ASK ME!!! Although I don't have the GameCube games or Diamond/Pearl.

    (Also in Ruby/Sapphire, the Pokedex is a nice blue color, but once you get the National Dex by trading it turns into an ugly grey color)

    I was battling in Battle Factory. Me and my opponent both had Breloom. Two Breloom used Focus Punch. I focused first, but he hit before me. Why??

    My guess would be it's the odd priorities of focus punch. The move itself is set to focus first and attack after the opponent attacks. If you were faster you would tighten focus first, and thus set your punch to occur after the opponent finished it's attack. Maybe the game is designed that when that happens the opponent's move will go first no matter what it is because the game can't assign two attacks to occur after each other. Sort of like two Pokemon using roar. The slowest Pokemon will actually get the move off because is only supposed to work after a move with higher priority regardless of speed and both Pokemon use the same move with the same priority so the faster one automatically is forced to get first.

    ...that's just my speculation and I hope you followed it. 0_0

    When obtaining the Johto Starters in Emerald do you just have to see all the pokemon in the Hoenn Dex or actually get all their pokedex entries???

    Emerald: Kyogre is found in marine cave after defeating the Elite 4. You will need to ask the weather institute scientist about abnormal rain weather conditions and he will reveal the route. you will go to the route and search for a dive spot(which usually is not there) and dive in for kyogre.

    yep you have to obtain each and every pokemon's entry of the hoenn pokedex to get the johto starters. good luck with feebas, it is the hardest to find of the 200.

    ^ No.

    Are there any other Hedgehog based pokemon other than Sandslash and Quilava/Cyndaquil (they are both as close as I could think of)?

    Shaymin's Land Forme could count as one I guess, and Sandshrew could be one without spikes. Other than that I think the ones you mentioned are the only ones (btw, Cyndaquil and Quilava are echidnas iirc).

    Just realised that.

    Oh well, i'll call Sandslash: Sonic and Quilava: Knuckles.

    Are there any fox pokemon (Vulpix?)?

    If/when I get a Shaymin, i'll call it Amy or Amy Rose.

    I might even get a Crobat called Rouge, find a rabbit pokemon called Cream, get a Feraligatr called Vector, a Charmeleon called Espio, a fire cat (?) called Blaze, a Beedrill called Charmy, frog pokemon (?) called Froggy, another cat (Persian?) called Big, a Shelgon (or another egg pokemon) called Eggman and a Registeel called E-123 Omega (or Omega for short).

    Yes, I love Sonic the Hedgehog.

    Hey, me too XD

    Almost all of the Eeveelutions are fox-like so you could pick one of those, or Vulpix/Ninetales, or even Buizel/Floatzel since it has two tails. For a rabbit you could use Nidoran, Azumarill, Buneary, or Lopunny. Flareon is the only thing resembling a fire cat I could think of x:

    I'll go with Ninetales for the fox, I would go with Buneary but I don't have Pearl atm, I lost it :/ i'll add that on when Platinum comes out. Azumarill will do,and for a fire cat Flareon is ok I guess.

    Any frog pokemon? I can't think of any.
