More Hints

Game Glitches

Get all 3 starters without gold/silver

1. Start a new game
2. Save in front of prof elms laboratory before you get your pokemon
3. DONT SAVE afterwards

4. Go to mr pokemon and all that stuff and when prof. elms assistant gives you 5 pokeballs go catch a random pokemon it doesnt matter and make sure to save 1 pokeball

5. Go to azaela town and make the starter you chose hold the pokeball
6. Deposit the starter

7. Switch to box 6 and right when it says "dont turn off power" (something like that :P) turn it off and back on

8. You should be in front of prof elms house
9. Go in and choose a different starter

10. Go to azaela town and withdraw the starer you put into the computer..... yep that right withdraw the other starter then take the pokeball you gave the other starter pokemon

11. Go catch another random pokemon with the pokeball you made the other starter hold

12. Deposit your 2 starters switch to box 6 and turn off power right when it says not 2

13. You should be in front of prof elms house again...
14. Take the final starter and go to azaela and withdraw your other 2 starers and wallah.

P.S. this trick does work dont believe me then try it i started a new game just to try it and i was let down :)

P.P.S. sometimes when you withdraw one of your starters...the name will be different like one time i got a cindiquil named shellder.. but you can just change it later

Cloning pokemon and objects

Give an object to a pokemon and put it in an empty box , change boxes and it will save just before the sentence finishes turn the gameboy off , turn it back on, you will be in front of the pc check it and you will have your pokemon in your team and the same pokemon with the same object in the box.
