I: The Beginnings
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I1) New Bark Town and choosing a starter
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Items : Potion x 2

Pokemon : Cyndaquil, Chikorita and Totodile

Before you start the game, you will be given a commentary on controls, then
professor oak comes in and starts teaching you about pokemon. You can choose
your name, then your rival's name. After you choose the names, your journey
automatically begins. Unlike the original, you do not need to set the time.

You start in your room, the only room in the second floor (Where does your
mom sleep? =o)

You can boot up the PC and get a free potion. I recommend you do so. Aside
from the PC, there is nothing else of interest (your room has two TVs
broadcasting the same program). The town map does not work in towns.

Once you go down, your mom will hand you your Pokebeeper and Phone Card (The
alternative to the phone in Pokegear in SG B5). She will not ask you to set
the day of the week or DST. She also mentions Professor Elm is looking for
you (Why didnt they give him a nice name like driftwood?).

You can go sightseeing in New Bark Town, but there is not much useful to hear. When you are ready, proceed to the lab. Talk to the red-haired kid by the lab. G/S players should know who he is.

When you enter the lab, you are forced to run an errand for Professor Elm
(lazy mudkip). He gives you 3 of his rarest pokemon (Why would he do that?
Video game logic!) to help you run your errand. Here are the three starters:

Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile


Grass Fire Water


Final Evolved Forms:

Meganium

Grass

Base Stats:

HP: 80
Attack: 82
Def: 100
SpA: 83
SpD: 100
Speed: 80

Typhlosion

Fire

Base Stats:

HP: 78
Attack: 84
Def: 78
SpA: 109
SpD: 85
Speed: 100

Feraligatr

Water

Base Stats:

HP: 85
Attack: 105
Def: 100
SpA: 79
SpD: 83
Speed: 78

What Starter should you choose?

In my opinion, Cyndaquil is the best starter. It pwns the earlygame, due to
fast evo and type advantage (over Bugsy, IMO one of the hardest leaders)
Most trainers other than Hikers do not carry pokemon resistant to fire, so
it can make use of its nice SpA stat and STAB to tear through them. It makes
the best use of STAB with 109 SpA and 100 Speed, and it can learn two of the
elemental punches (Fire & Thunder punch) in its final form.

Totodile is the second best starter. Its earlygame is quite hard, as the
rival fight is harder and it has a late evo. It can't make use of STAB as
effectively as Typhlosion as its SpA stat is only 83, meaning it can't surf
and use ice punch effectively. With the addition of buyable Earthquake and
easily obtainable Return, it can make use of its Attack Stat and carry
Surf/Ice Punch too.

Chikorita is, in my opinion, the worst starter. Its earlygame is very hard,
as Falkner and Bugsy will tear through it with STAB SE attacks (Aerial Ace,
Fury Cutter). It doesn't help that grass is resisted by a lot of types,
leaving it to use its normal move, Tackle. It also has a limited movepool.

The reason that I emphasise earlygame so much is that around Goldenrod, your
Pokemon choices start getting better(Heracross, Eevee, Dratini to name a few). I tend to ditch my starter once i find a better pokemon. Keeping your starters is fine, though.

The machine on the top left side of the lab can heal pokemon.

Once you pick a pokemon, you should go down (cause, like, thats the only way
to get out?). One of Professor Elm's aides will give you a Potion to start
with. Now you should have two potions. Go out of the lab, then


SAVE!


because the HARDEST battle in Shiny Gold X is about to begin.

Once you go out, you get ambushed by some random trainer named Carlos who
looks like Noland (Battle Factory) wearing a trenchcoat. Which brings me to
my next point - The origin of Carlos.

My theory:

Factory Head Noland was enjoying a fine day experiencing his 128492342th loss
against the player, .

Player: You just got pwnt.
Noland: Its not FAIR! Ur pkmn r BROKEN!1!@!2 U HACKER !!1!@

After the battle:

Noland: Nxt time, gv that dude lv 1 pkmn, k?
Aide: But thats against the game rules!
Noland: STFU nub I make the rules GTFO lolz
Aide: Can you not talk in l33tsp34k?
Noland: I SAID STFU!!1!!@!1!!11!

*Bludgeons aide with spanner*

Noland: (lapses into normalspeak after the shock) What have I done? I'm a murderer!! I
better change my identity and start over as a trainer!

*runs from factory, COMPLETELY forgetting the lv 100 pokemon in the factory*

(Reaches Lavaridge Town)

Old Woman: I got this egg from the..
Noland: Cut the crap and gimme the egg!

[NOLAND obtained EGG!]

*Buys trenchcoat and changes name*
*Finds his way to Johto somehow*
*sees trainer*

Noland (now CARLOS): Easy money!

/end theory

This is the single hardest battle in B5.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

CARLOS's Pokemon

Slowpoke lv 5

Curse
Yawn
Growl
Tackle

You cannot train your starter, you have to battle him using your level 5
pokemon.

Chikorita Cyndaquil Totodile
Tackle Tackle Scratch
Growl Leer Growl

Slowpoke will spam curse and raise its def and attack, powering up headbutt.
It will also try to yawn, putting your pokemon to sleep while it Curses up.
After a lot of Curses, headbutt will do serious damage to your pokemon.

You only have 1 oran berry and 2 potions for recovery. This battle depends on
your luck. Just keep attacking, and don't use any of the non-damaging moves
because Slowpoke can just curse away the stat reductions. It took me 5 tries
to do this without any potions/berries.

If you're lucky, it'll spam yawn while you're sleeping and forget to use tackle. If you're unlucky it'll curse up while you're sleeping and when you awake your attacks will do piddly damage on it.

Prize: 500G

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

After that hellish battle, rejoice, as you have just completed the hardest
battle in Shiny Gold X! And a psychotic murderer is after you! REJOICE =D!!

I2) Route 29 to Cherrygrove

Note: All Hoenn pokemon are rare

Spearow (Headbutt) | You can't get it at this point

You don't have pokeballs, so you can't catch anything.

Move down, go up the slope, and go up and right to get a Potion in the upper
right corner. Go back down and you should see a tollbooth ahead. Go through
it.

The only pokemon of note here is Geodude. Once it learns Rock Throw, it can
handle the first two gwms without much trouble. It isn't good endgame though
due to its plethora of weaknesses.

Go back to Route 29.


Route 29

Go right and get the ORAN BERRY from the tree. These events are time-based,
and happen only after a few minutes, for example the tbe berry will regrow
after some time.

Go right into Cherrygrove Town

------------------------
Cherrygrove
------------------------

Items: TOWN MAP, Mystic Water

Talk to the old man at the entrance of the town. After giving you a tour, he
gives you the TOWN MAP. You can talk to him for some useless advice. There is
a phone booth here. You can call MOM and ELM, and trainers who you've
recorded on your phone card. They might challenge you to a rematch.

Go into the pokemon center to heal your pokemon.

Pokemart:

Potion | 300 G
Antidote | 100 G
Parlyz Heal | 200 G
Awakening | 250 G
Poke ball* | 200 G

* Unlocked later

Basically there is nothing of interest in Cherrygrove, Mystic Water cannot be
accessed without SURF.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I3) Cherrygrove to Mr. Pokemon's House
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go up, out of Cherrygrove.

Items: Pokedex, ORAN BERRY, MYSTERY EGG

You still can't catch anything.

Go up and you will see a house with a berry tree beside it. Enter the house
and the man inside will give you an ORAN BERRY. The tree beside it has the
same berry.

Go up, and you'll find that the way to Route 31 is blocked. Continue on the
other way, and you'll reach Mr. Pokemon's house. There is a tree near it
that has a CHERI BERRY.

Once you enter the house, Mr. Pokemon gives you the MYSTERY EGG, and
introduces you to Professor Oak. He gives you a Pokedex, and runs off. Mr.
Pokemon will heal your Pokemon for you.

When you come out, you will recieve a call about a theft in the lab from ELM.
(We don't know someone by the name of ELM, we only know PROFESSOR ELM, so
we'll ignore it =x)

ELM, if you didn't know is the short form of PROFESSOR ELM. I have achieved
this result after years of complex analysis of the script.

Anyways, head back to Cherrygrove.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cherrygrove Town
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Buy some Potions from the store, and train your pokemon up. You should train
them to about level 10 if you have Cyndaquil or Chikorita, and you should
train Totodile to about lvl 13. An important battle is coming up soon.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I4) Your first Rival Battle
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go to the right exit of the town, and there's that red-haired kid we saw
just now, with a stolen pokemon! He battles you immediately.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rival Battle #1

From now on, i will be referring to your rival as 'Rival'.

Pokemon:

If you chose Cyndaquil:

Totodile lv 8

Scratch
Leer
Rage
----

If you chose Chikorita

Cyndaquil lv 8

Tackle
Leer
Smokescreen
----

If you chose Totodile

Chikorita lv 8

Tackle
Growl
Razor Leaf
----

Not much strategy needed, just attack. Use healing items if needed, and if
your levels are high enough, you win.

The reason Totodile needs to be so overleveled is that Rival's pokemon packs
a super-effective move (Razor Leaf). If its not at lv 13 or more, don't
expect it to survive more than 2 razor leafs.

Prize: 800G

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you beat him, you get some of his money and a lot of exp. He will say that he is going to be the best pokemon trainer in the world. Fat hope =P.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I5) Mystery Egg Delivery
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Route 29

Go exactly the same way, except you can jump down ledges now.

New Bark Town

Items: AMULET COIN, Pokeball x 5

Go straight to Professor Elm's lab. Enter, and talk to him. He will jump backwards when you talk to him. He will ramble about a lot of stuff, the superiority of Professor Oak, etc. When he's done, you will go on your quest. Exit the lab, and an Aide will pass you 5 pokeballs.

Exit Elm's lab, and go to your house and speak to your mom. Instead of offering to save money for you, she will give you the Running Shoes and the AMULET COIN. (Why did Zel take the saving feature out? =( We could exploit it in the Elite 4!)

Now, you have the ability to catch pokemon. If you're one of those who care about the Pokedex, and complete it as you go, you're gonna have a REALLY hard time catching the elusive Hoenn pokemon and Raikou and Entei (Both have Roar XD).

When you go out, an old man will show you how to catch pokemon. (Same tutorial as FR)

I'm going to repost the pokemon lists here, basically you go to Cherrygrove and go up to where the two trainers were battling and continue from there.

Before you journey on, CATCH A POKEMON, ANY POKEMON. There are double battles in Azalea, and not having two pokemon with you can screw things up. There is also the egg glitch, if you participate in a double battle with only 1 pokemon and an egg, you will send out both of them. This screws up the game.

There's quite a lot of things in Violet City. The gym, Sprout Tower, and the PokemonSchool.

Firstly, there's a boy in the bottom left house who wants a Bellsprout for an Onix. This may seem good, as Onix can take on Falkner with its high def and STAB Rock Throw, but it will not listen to you after level 10. =(

Secondly, there's the Pokemon School. The teacher's not in, so all you can do is look at notes. There are 2 students playing gameboys at the back of the class. Wish i could do that too =(. You can look at the notes, but there's nothing interesting or new.

The gym is to the left of the School. Beside the gym is a fat guy. He will spin around and talk to you in mixed up English (kinda like Yoda =x). Say no to his question and he reveals himself to be the teacher of the school. His name is Earl, and he'll talk about useless stuff like EXP. They should get someone to teach about IVs and EVs and whether a Smeargle STAB Tackle will be able to OHKO bold, 252 hp/def Shuckle or something =p

Our next destination is the tower up ahead, called Sprout Tower.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I9) Violet Gym
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------
Preparation
--------------------

The Violet Gym is home to many Flying types. The normal trainers do not pose much threat, its Falkner, the gym leader, that you should be worried about. All his pokemon (2 of them) have flying attacks - Aerial Ace on Hoothoot, and Fly on Pidgeotto.

You can't get electric or ice pokemon and moves, so your best bet is to train a Geodude to at least level 11 so that it learns Rock Throw. Or you could just take the gym on with the evolved starter (Quilava or Croconaw). Bayleef doesn't stand a chance =(.

---------------------
The Actual Gym
---------------------

Trainers: Bird Keeper Abe, Bird Keeper Rod, Falkner (Gym Leader)

When you enter the Gym, the first thing you notice should be Carlos, the psycho whom you battled last time in New Bark Town (He certainly acts like one later in the game...).

When you take a step forward, he challenges you.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Carlos Battle II (Violet Gym)

Carlos' Pokemon

Eevee lv 13

Headbutt
Tail Whip
Double Team
?

Slowpoke lv 13

Growl
Headbutt
Curse
Yawn

This battle should be easier than the previous one, as you've come prepared. I'm not sure what Eevee's last move is, i think it is a non-normal attack.

Eevee has a 70 power STAB move, which works out to be 105 power factoring in STAB. It is going to hit very hard. You should employ a fast, powerful pokemon to take it down.

Slowpoke can be owned by Gastly if you caught 1 in Sprout Tower. If you don't have one, use a special attacker, Bellsprout is probably the best to combat it. You shouldn't have a hard time with slowpoke, just switch out when it yawns to prevent sleep.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Look at the two statues near the entrance. They say that Carlos beat the gym. He has the advantage of better movesets. Your name is going to be on that Plaque. There is a man standing near the statues. He will dispense advice about type alignments, but you probably don't need his advice.

I10) Falkner
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you've disposed of the trainers, you're ready to face Falkner. I recommend you heal, as Carlos probably drained your pokemon. When you're ready, talk to Falkner (which has the same sprite as Koga =X).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Gym Battle 1

Falkner - Flying Gym Leader

Hoothoot lv 16

Hypnosis
Double Team
Aerial Ace
Mud-Slap

Pidgeotto lv 18

Quick Attack
Fly
Double Team
Mud-Slap

He begins with a speech on how you can clip bird pokemon's wings with a jolt of
electricity, and he says its an insult to bird pokemon. You can, as the only burd pokemon
who don't have a weakness to electricity are Zapdos and Altaria =.=.

Anyway, you probably don't have electricity unless you got an Unown with HP Electric or
something. Geodude pwns here, as it resists all their attacks (BTW, Mud-Slap is Ground
with 20 power. With a chance of lowering acc =(. )

Hoothoot will start with Hypnosis and will probably start Double Teaming. Gym battles like
these is only dependent on luck, as all your moves can miss due to Double Team (cheap crap)
. Hypnosis's accuracy is only 55, so you could hax a miss or something.

Pidgeotto is the real deal. Putting Fly on Pidgeotto is kinda stupid, IMO. Aerial Ace is
stronger, and you essentially get a free turn. But hey, i'm not complaining.

When you win, he'll reveal that you just pwned his dad's cherished bird pokemon. His dad
must be pretty crappy then =X.

YOU GOT THE ZEPHYRBADGE!!


Good work, only 15 more badges -_-. And BTW, Mud-Slap is crappy. You can buy Earthquake from the game corner in Goldenrod. Falkner says its "both offensive and defensive". It kinda lacks in the offensive part (20 pwr wut?)

Once you go out, you will recieve a PokeBeeper message from Prof. Elm, telling that his aide is in town, and you should speak to him.

The aide will give you the egg and scoot. So now you have to make an important decision, how would you like your egg? Fried, Scrambled, Poached or Steamed? Or you could just eat it raw with the developing embryo!

The egg contains Togepi, and is the source of many glitches in Shiny Gold. When you enter a double battle with only one pokemon and/without an egg, the game will glitch up. So you could just deposit the egg in the box and leave it to collect dust, since Togetic is not a good pokemon.

Rather long, eh?

Part 2! ^-^

Spoiler:

II1) Ruins of Alph
II2) Route 32
II3) Union Cave
II4) Route 33
II5) Azalea Town
II6) Save the Slowpokes! (Slowpoke well)
II7) Azalea Gym

II9) Rival Fight II

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Part II) Attack of the Kurt Clones! (Violet to Azalea)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
II1) Ruins of Alph
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Technically you can go here before you complete the Violet Gym, just to let you know.

Pokemon that can be found | Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unown (Inside) | -***** DONT USE IT
Igglybuff (Inside) | * Igglybuff stays as its original form for a | loooong time. Go catch a Jigglypuff.
Ralts (Inside) | *** Limited movepool (limited to mostly psychic attacks and Thunder)
Wynaut (Inside) | *** WOBB IS FREAKING CHEAP ENCORE + | COUNTER/MIRROR COAT! can't do direct damage | though
Natu | Unobtainable at this point
Smeargle | Unobtainable at this point

Missingno (Fish) | Don't try it.
Spearow (Headbutt) | Unobtainable at this point
Aipom (Headbutt) | Unobtainable at this point
Heracross (Headbutt) | Unobtainable at this point

The Ruins of Alph can be found by going left from Violet City and heading down into the tollbooth.

A lot of the pokemon in the Ruins of Alph are unobtainable at this point, but you can grab a few Unowns and Wynaut.

First, go into the ruins first and talk to the tourists. Then go to the first cave (the one with a sign beside it) and
move the stone panels (press A while facing it, there is no Kabuto Puzzle =( )

This will release the wild pokemon, and the tourists will disappear. (Note: don't use Unown. Its stats are bad and its only
move, Hidden Power, is really random. So you could be stuck with a 20 power move for eternity. Not Fun.)

You don't get the Unowndex like the original Gold. ( =( ).

II5) Azalea Town
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Azalea Town is famous for Kurt's custom pokeballs. Basically, Kurt uses Apricorns (gained from trees) to forge special pokeballs, Fast Ball, Dive Ball, etc. I find getting the balls to be very frsutrating, as he takes a VERY long time to make a ball while i can get 99 at one shot from a Pokemart. Still, its free (please don't make the balls for this reason
unless you are incredibly cheap XD ).

Shop

CHARCOAL | 9800G
Poke Ball | 200G
Potion | 300G
Super Potion | 700G
Escape Rope | 550G
Repel | 350G
Antidote | 100G

Don't buy CHARCOAL. Its incredibly expensive and you get one free later in the game.

Team Rocket Grunts are blocking the entrances to the Slowpoke Well and the Gym. There's nothing else to do but visit Kurt. (You can go to Ilex Forest to catch some pokemon, but you won't go far as it requires the HM Cut.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
II6) Save the Slowpokes! (Slowpoke Well)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Go into Kurt's house and talk to Kurt (the old man not the little girl incase you didn't know). He asks you whether you want some balls (Dude, i already have balls =o), and he tells you about Team Rocket, which are the evilest people in Pokemon games (team magma, aqua and Galactic aren't as cruel), and tells you that he is going to kick their asses. (Why did he wait for you to come then?) He will rush out. You ought to follow him.

There is no rocket grunt blocking the well now. Enter.

Kurt has broken his back by falling down the well, and thus cannot punish Team Rocket for their evil deeds (Why doesn't he loan you his pokemon?). So you have to show your 'gutsiness' in his place.

Prize: 640G

Kurt will rescue the Slowpokes, and send you back to his house.

Talk to Kurt to recieve a Net Ball. Kurt will also be honoured to make balls for you (I don't need any more).

The forging system works like this - Get an Apricorn from trees scattered around Johto. There is a White Apricorn tree next to Kurt's home. Next, give it to Kurt, and he will make a ball for you. After a VERY long time, you get a ball.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
II7) Azalea Gym
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trainers: Carlos, Twins Amy & May!, Bug Catcher Josh, Bug Catcher Al!,

When you approach the gym, you'll see someone that you know, Carlos. He just owned the gym (don't be decieved by him, this gym is actually pretty hard). He wants a Double Battle this time.

(IMPORTANT: BEFORE YOU START THE BATTLE, MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE AT LEAST TWO POKEMON AND YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE AN EGG
IN YOUR LIST.)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Carlos Fight III: Azalea Gym

Double Battle

Eevee lv 20

Headbutt
Tail Whip
Bite
?

and

Slowpoke lv 20

Curse
Yawn
Confusion
Headbutt

This battle is easier than the other Carlos battles, because you can focus on one pokemon at a time, using two attacks to
KO it. Carlos' movesets aren't suited to Double Battles, he dosen't have Protect, Explosion, Earthquake etc.

If you only trained one, you should be able to beat Carlos if you are high-levelled enough.

Prize: 4000G
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

He knows that he must catch more pokemon. So hope that he has a team full of Dittos or crap like that =x.

Go up and battle the Twins (double battle again).

Finally, THE EPIC GYM LEADER FIGHT!!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
II8) Bugsy
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Bugsy is actually male, but i thought he was female for a few years =x)

Bugsy is the Bug Gym Leader, and is very hard to begin with. Don't use Bayleef here, as it'll get pwned in a few hits. Bugsy has superior movesets and stats, so you have to pin his weakness. BTW, all his pokemon are 4x weak to Rock, and Geodude resists a lot of Bugsy's attacks.

Butterfree (F) lv 20

Sleep Powder
Attract
Confusion
Supersonic

This thing will annoy the crap out of you, if nothing else. Down it fast.

Beautifly lv 20

Double Team
Aerial Ace

Attract

DOUBLE TEAM HAX =.=

Scyther lv 24

Swords Dance
Double Team
Quick Attack

Geodude completely pwns Scyther. Gastly resists both his attacks. If Scyther gets a Swords Dance up, you are going to be
pwned T.T

Prizes : HIVEBADGE, 4800G, TM49 (Fury Cutter)

Fury Cutter is crappy, don't use it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
II9) Rival Fight II
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Exit the gym, heal your pokemon and head left to Ilex Forest. Your rival will appear and challenge you.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rival Fight II

(Note: From now on, i will only give the pokemon the rival uses if you started with Cyndaquil.)

Sableye lv 20

Night Shade
Thunderpunch
Ice Punch
Foresight

You can't hit super-effective on it, so you should try to down it fast.

Croconaw lv 22

Water Gun
Double Team
Bite
Roar

Cheap phazer =(

Nidorino lv 20

Peck
Leer
Double Kick
Focus Energy

The crappiest of the lot.

Ilex Forest is watched over by its protector, Celebi. And the charcoal man's Farfetch'd has gone missing.

Walk until you see the Farfetch'd, then talk to it. it will run away to another spot. Go get the Revive and follow these steps to get it back to its master:

(Note: The directions are stating the direction to talk to Farfetch'd to. For example, when i say 'Up', you should talk to Farfetch'd from the top side.)

Down
Up
Up
Down
Down
Right
Right

If you still cannot get it out, there are a few good videos on Youtube that can help.

Once you get Farfetch'd out, you can talk to the Charcoal man and you'll get HM01, Cut. This move allows you to cut down small trees. You can now do the sidequests part 2.

(Note: If you go back to Azalea and talk to the Charcoal man's apprentice, he will give you Charcoal)

Go uo to the bush and Cut it. Head upwards. Follow the path until you come to a fork. Go left and follow the path until you see a trainer facing a tree. Talk to him and he'll give you Headbutt.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
III2) Headbutt Fun
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now you have a new means of obtaining pokemon - Headbutt. Here's how it works.

Have a pokemon with Headbutt in your party. Go to a tree (some trees cannot be headbutted) and press A. The game will ask you whether you want to Headbutt it. Select 'Yes' and you have a chance of getting wild pokemon to fall out. You cannot Headbutt the same tree two times in a row, so you have to move at least 1 step then you can Headbutt again.

Here is a list of the pokemon that can be obtained via Headbutt"

Pokemon that can be obtained | Location
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Caterpie | Azalea, Routes 34-39, 27, Ilex Forest, Lake of Rage
Metapod | Same as Caterpie
Butterfree | Azalea, Routes 34-38, Ilex Forest, Lake of Rage
Beedrill | Victory Road - grass floor
Spearow | Routes 29-33, 42-44, 9, Ruins of Alph
Exeggcute | Azalea Town, Routes 34-39, 27, 9, Ilex Forest, Lake
| of Rage, Victory Road - grass floor
Ariados | Victory Road - grass floor
Aipom | Routes 29-33, 42-44, 9, Ruins of Alph
Pineco | Azalea, Routes 35-39, 27, 9, Ilex Forest, Lake of
| Rage
Heracross | Routes 29-33, 42-44, 9, Ruins of Alph
Wurmple | Route 31
Shiftry | Victory Road - grass floor
Ninjask | Routes 44, 27
Shedinja | Route 37
Volbeat | Route 34
Illumise | Route 39

The pokemon worth mentioning is Heracross. It is hands-down, the best bug type ever. It learns Megahorn, 130 power, and has STAB on it, and it has a huge attack. The downside is that it is rare, with the addition of headbutt's unreliability it is VERY rare. You could probably get a Heracross now if you backtrack.

Follow the path to the toll booth. Don't email me about how to get through Ilex Forest, its a straight path =.=

Up ahead, there is a daycare where you can breed pokemon. It is mostly pointless in-game unless you want a team for competitive battling, and pokemon in a day-care gain no EVs, and therefore are weaker. Use it if you want baby pokemon (Wynaut, Azurill, Phione etc.)

Go next to the day-care and you'll be ambushed by an Officer.

Officer Keith

Growlithe lv 28

Prize:

Go up and battle the other trainer.

Camper 6Trainer/1

Psyduck lv 21

Prize: 420G
---------------------------------------

Go up and enter Goldenrod City.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
III4) Goldenrod City
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Items: Bike

Goldenrod City is the most urban city in the Pokemon Games (well, Celadon was pretty cool w/ the secret base, but w/e). It has a LEGAL gambling den w/ no age restrictions and rare pokemon that have been smuggled in. It has an underground path with nerds (its the nerds that are scary) and a Department Store with 7 floors. And Bill lives here.

First, go up until you see something that looks like train tracks. They are the tracks for the Magnet Train, which goes to Saffron City in Kanto. It isn't going to be working for a LOOOOOOOOONG time, though.

The Bike Shop from Cerulean City in Kanto has moved here. From where you are, turn left, then down and enter the bottom-most building. You automatically get a Bike to help them advertise.

Go back to the train tracks. Just right of the Station, there is the Name Rater's house, he changes nicknames. The Name Rater would always say that the new nickname is better than the old one. Go name your pokemon four-letter words or something.

Go back to the Pokemon Center, and head to the huge building on the right. It is the Department Store.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
III5) Goldenrod Dept. Store
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Its so huge it gets a section to itself.

The 1st floor doesn't sell anything.

The 2nd floor sells stuff you use.

---------------

TM41, Thunderpunch | 3000G
TM42, Fire Punch | 3000G
TM02, Headbutt | 3000G
-------------

The Blackbelt standing near the counter will trade his Machop for your Drowzee. Machop can help a lot at the Goldenrod Gym, as all the pokemon are of Normal type.

The Lady at the Counter will give out TMs depending on the happiness of Pokemon. If your pokemon is happy, you will recieve TM27, Return. If it is unhappy, you will recieve TM21, Frustration. Once you get a TM, you have to wait for a while to get another one.

The Top floor has vending machines. The healing items here are the most cost-efficient.

-------------
Fresh Water | 200G
Soda Pop | 300G
Lemonade | 350G
-------------

Basement 1 can be accessed via the lift, but you can't do anything there yet.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
III6) Underground Path
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Head to the path above the Pokemon Center, and at the end of it you'll find the south entrance of the Underground Path.

I'll be starting from the south entrance.

Items: Coin Case

Head up and battle the first trainer.

Pokemaniac Issac

Lickitung lv 22

PrizeL 1320G
-------------------------------

Head up and collect the Coin Case. Now you can play in the Game Corner.

The old lady ahead sells bitter medicine. I advise not buying them as the TM, Return is readily available and you definitely don't want to decrease your Pokemon's happiness if you want to use it.

--------------------------------
Energypowder | 500G
Energy Root | 800G
Heal Powder | 450G
Revival Herb | 2800G
--------------------------------

The guy up ahead gives haircuts for 300G which increases your Pokemon's happiness. Use it if you have Pokemon that evolve by happiness (Togepi, Azurill, etc)

The old man up ahead sells a Nugget for 4500G. You can resell it for 5000G =D.

Go up and battle the Super Nerd next to the old man.

Slowking lv 20

Prize: 960G
---------------------------------

Head up the steps and out to find yourself back in Goldenrod.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
III7) Game Corner
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now that you have the Coin Case, you can now store Coins, the currency of the Game Corner. Which means that you can use its Facilities.

Talk to the attendant at the left counter to get Coins.

--------------------------------
50 Coins = 1000G
500 Coins = 10000G
--------------------------------

You can figure out the slot machine by yourself, right?

The attendants at the left counter exchange your coins for Prizes.

The left counter has TMs.

--------------------------------
TM25, Thunder 5500 coins, 110,000 G
TM14, Blizzard 5500 coins, 110,000 G
TM38, Fire Blast 5500 coins, 110,000 G
TM23, Iron Tail 4500 coins, 90,000 G
TM26, Earthquake 6500 coins, 130,000 G
--------------------------------

We lost Thunderbolt, Flamethrower and Ice Beam =(.

On the other hand, SG has unlimited EARTHQUAKE TMs!!

The right counter sells Pokemon.

---------------------------------
Abra | 200 Coins 4,000G
Ekans | 700 Coins 14,000G

Dratini | ***** Versatile, can learn EQ & Surf
Charmander | **** Me wants BELLYZARD =( Try to get a +SpA nature
Larvitar | ***** 134 base attack. Rock & Dark STAB. Learns almost every move.

Once you had your fun (you probably can't afford any of the TMs), leave the Game Corner.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
III8) Radio Tower
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Radio Tower is the tallest building in Goldenrod.

Enter it, and you only have 2 things to do in it. You will be coming back another time though.

The Gentleman will hold a game for 300G. Its purely luck, and i haven't got anything from there =(.

The rightmost attendant will give you a Radio if you answer all the questions correctly. The answers are:

No
Yes
No
No (duh)
Yes

You get a Radio-Visio, which is a Teachy TV with a different name. =(

(Note: The background is glitched up, and the Poke Dude, oddly has Carlos' sprite)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
III9) Goldenrod Gym
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before you even get into the gym, you have to battle Carlos.

Uh.. looks like he just got owned by the gym leader, so he can't battle you =(.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pre-gym preparation

All the pokemon here are pure normal type. Up till now, there are only five pokemon which can learn Fighting Type-moves, which are super-effective against normal types.

Heracross (Headbutt Routes 29-33, 42-44, 9, Ruins of Alph) (Rare)

Muscle (Machop) (Trade Drowzee for Blackbelt's Machop at Goldenrod Dept. Store. Drowzee can be found at Routes 34, 35, 11.)

Breloom (Evolve Shroomish, which can be found at Ilex Forest, Rare)

Nidoran M & F (Routes 35 & 36)

Out of these, the first three are the best because they get STAB.

With Heracross, Muscle or Breloom, you can sweep the whole gym easily with Fighting moves. Muscle will stop obeying you when it gets to lv 31.

If you use anything else, they'd have to be higher leveled. And Carlos just got pwned by Whitney =X
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trainers: Beauty Victoria!, Beauty Samantha!, Lass Carrie, Lass Bridget!

Enter the gym, and go up the front path. Battle the trainer there.

----------------------------
Beauty Victoria!

Jigglypuff lv 20
Wigglytuff lv 21

Prize: 336G

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
III10) Whitney

Whitney is the third gym leader, and the hardest in GSC. Just to let you know, the GSC leaders ranked from hard to easy:

1) Whitney
2) Clair
3) Bugsy
4) Chuck
5) Jasmine
6) Falkner
7) Morty
8) Pryce

The reason being Whitney's Miltank had very high stats and had a great move in GSC, Rollout, which tore through many teams.
(Hence the name: F!@#ing cow)

In SG, Whitney is easier. But Attract is annoying, and Miltank still has sky-high stats.

Clefairy lv 25 (F)

Doubleslap
Reflect
Minimize
Attract

This thing is just annoying. A ghost type pwns it.

Miltank lv 26 (F)

Attract
Body Slam
Rollout
Milk Drink

Sorry Miltank, Blissey wins Fat Pink Whore of the year award =(

Miltank will immobilise you w/ attract and proceed to pwn with Body Slam. Rollout at full power is scary. Milk Drink also heals Miltank when Whitney runs out of Potions. Did i mention Thick Fat negating Fire attacks? And Miltank is scarily fast & strong?

Use a fast sweeper.

Prize: 2600G

Oh, you just hurt her feelings by thrashing her =D (I'm sadistic)

When you try to get out, the Lass will tell you that Whitney will stop soon.

Talk to her to collect your Badge and your TM.

The PLAINBADGE allows pokemon to use Strength out of battle, whilst TM45, Attract, would immobilise pokemon of the opposite gender 50% of the time. You don't have Strength yet.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
End of Part III
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are sidequests, but I will post them later. For now, Part 3!
