| 1: INTRODUCTION/CONTACT INFORMATION | INTCI |
===============================================

Hello, and welcome to my newest guide on GameFAQs, the Pokemon HeartGold/Soul-
Silver Boss Guide. If you have followed any of my previous guides, you'll know
that I write my guides in a certain way. I've completely changed the method in
order to clean it up and make it look a lot tidier, so it should be much nicer
this time around. Most notable: I am now listing EXP points and abilities.

I will be adding the Rival section this time around, something that I meant to
do in my previous guide. Also, due to popular demand, I'm adding a Team Rocket
Executive section. I didn't plan to before, but enough people asked for it, so
there you go. I'm not covering Giovanni no matter how many people ask me to; I
didn't get the luxury of being able to face him myself.

All in all, this will be by far my most in-depth boss guide to date. I hope it
will be of help to you.

In case you have any questions, I can be contacted personally at one of the e-
mail addresses that I provided in the copyright information section above. One
thing to note is that there are restrictions on contacting me, listed here:

- If I am contacted for personal issues, even if it is just a message saying a
greeting, the e-mail will be ignored and/or deleted. Not to be a jerk, but I'm
only responding to e-mails pertaining to my guide.
- If you contact me with questions that are easily answered within this guide,
I will likely not respond to them. If there is anything that isn't spelled out
clearly in my guide, feel free to notify me and I will find and edit the area,
but if I find that the so-called unclear section is actually easily explained,
I will not reply.
- Hate mail will, of course, not be addressed. It will be deleted immediately,
with no exceptions whatsoever. Don't waste my time and your own telling me any
unsavory things about my mother.
- If you see any mistakes in my guide, please notify me as soon as possible so
I can rectify them. This guide is here to help people, not to further bewilder
them. If you do find a mistake and inform me, your name will be added below to
the special thanks list, and the error will be fixed as soon as I find it.

Thank you for your patience. I've been rather lazy with updating this guide in
the past year or so, but I have finally gone through it again and fixed up the
things that needed fixing up. Without further ado, I present my guide!

As you probably guessed already, I plan to cover the Johto gyms in order. They
are all a bit different than their Gold/Silver counterparts, but are mostly in

As you can see, there has been a major change in his levels since Gold/Silver.
He is no longer a pushover and is quite capable of doing some major damage. In
any case, be glad he doesn't have a Staravia or Swellow, which use Wing Attack
at this level, and be further glad that Gust is now a Special Attack stat move
which sucks on Pidgeotto.

Pidgey won't do much damage to you, and is only really there to chip away your
health; if your levels are high enough, it won't do eff-all to you anyway, and
especially so if you caught and are using a Geodude. On the other hand, he has
a newly boosted Pidgeotto at level 13 now, which can take down an underleveled
team pretty handily. This shouldn't be a problem, since clearing out the tower
is mandatory now and should have given you some high levels, and you can train
in the Ruins of Alph and in the grass south of Violet City, too. You can catch
Mareep in that grass and use it here, too, giving you an even easier win. Most
strategies in the early game are good enough to take down the first gym leader
in any region, so you shouldn't have too many problems. One thing to note: his
Pidgeotto has Roost, a Flying-type move that recovers half the total HP of the
Pokemon using it, and takes away the Flying-type attribute for the rest of the
turn it is used, so you won't be able to hit it super-effectively for one turn
if it uses Roost. Keep that in mind.

No Flash this time around, thank god. You get to use Rock Smash after winning.

This battle is fairly harder than it was in Gold/Silver, mostly due to Scyther
being the opening Pokemon. Bugsy's strategy is pretty straightforward: Scyther
uses Leer or Focus Energy for a boost, and then U-Turn to do some damage while
switching out for Metapod or Kakuna. U-Turn has a base power of 70, quite more
than usual for this point in the game, and Scyther itself is pretty strong, so
try to lead with something that resists Bug-types, like a Flying-type or Fire-
type.

Taking out his two useless cocoons isn't the problem here; they're both pretty
weak and get taken out pretty easily. Why they remain unevolved after all this
time, I don't know. The main issue is that once Metapod and Kakuna are knocked
out, Scyther can start using U-Turn without having to switch out. If you're in
possession of a Rock Pokemon like Onix or Geodude, you should be able to knock
it out with Rock Throw before it gets you. If you're not, however, the problem
remains and Quilava may not always be enough to win. Also, unlike Fury Cutter,
U-turn isn't inaccurate. If you don't have a Rock Pokemon, there are more good
choices like Flaaffy, Pidgeotto and Zubat that I recommend for this battle. As
well, Scyther's ability, Technician, will boost its Quick Attack by a multiple
of 1.5, giving it a BP of 60; not as strong as U-Turn, but still fairly strong
and able to take out Pokemon like Quilava and Zubat. Finally, Scyther holds an
item called Sitrus Berry to restore HP once it goes down to less than half, by
about one-quarter of its maximum.

The real question is why Metapod and Kakuna aren't Butterfree and Beedrill. It
is probably because they figured that Scyther is enough, but the EXP, man ...

Most of what I said in my Gold/Silver guide applies to this battle as well; it
only really differs in the abilities added after gen 2 and that one level each
was shaved off her Pokemon. For those who didn't read my previous guide and do
not want to, I'll go into detail again here.

Clefairy wasn't a problem back in gen 2, but it can be now because of its new,
annoying ability called Cute Charm. If you use a physical move on Clefairy, it
has a small chance of infatuating your Pokemon as though Attract was used. You
are going to hate that, plain and simple. Infatuation means that you have a 50
percent chance of attacking it and a 50 percent chance of not being able to do
anything, though it seems more like 20/80 than 50/50 for the most part. At any
rate, Clefairy uses Metronome a lot, which can pull any attack in the game out
at random, but you most likely won't see a good move used on you unless you're
really unlucky.

The difficulty setting is purely for Miltank, the cow from the original games,
which simply loves being an ass. Like Clefairy, it has the exact same moves as
before, but this time it uses Stomp a lot more than Rollout. Scrappy, a rather
neat ability, allows it to stomp on Ghosts, too. It will usually lead with its
most annoying move, Attract, which is the attack version of Cute Charm. If you
thought Clefairy was annoying, you will hate Miltank with the burning anger of
one thousand gods. Geodude and Onix are good Pokemon to use here, but Fighting
Pokemon like Machop are your best bet. Also, don't get excited if you Paralyze
it, Poison it, or put it to sleep, as it's holding a Lum Berry to heal all its
status conditions when used. If you're lucky enough to get another status con-
dition against it, good on you. Finally, take note of Milk Drink, which is the
same as Recover and Roost.

Give yourself a pat on the back when you've won. You've earned it.

Normally, the Gastly family would have four weaknesses: Ground, Psychic, Dark,
and Ghost. All four of his Pokemon have the ability Levitate, which makes most
Ground-type attacks useless. There aren't any Dark-type Pokemon at this point,
unless you got Eevee and evolved it into Umbreon, which most people don't. Any
Psychic Pokemon not named Alakazam at this point in the game will be destroyed
by Gengar. Same goes for Ghost Pokemon not also named Gengar. This really cuts
down your options, as you can see. You can use Psychic- and Ghost-type Pokemon
against his Gastly and two Haunters, but you will need another strategy if you
want to take down Gengar, who outclasses all three. In light of this, I do not
recommend anything in particular for Gengar.

Gastly and Haunter 2 won't give you much trouble. Both have terrible movesets,
and will more than likely do themselves in with Curse. Haunter 1 can pose some
sort of threat with a Hypnosis/Dream Eater combination, but the combination is
too dependent on you not waking up or not having Full Heals/Awakenings. Mostly
anything with Bite or Confusion will take down all three of them. The Haunters
can take hits if you're not higher leveled than they are, but you should be at
mid-20s in level by this point anyway.

Meanwhile, Gengar is in a league of his own. Special Attack-wise it's still at
the top of the Ghost chart, and it makes great use of this with Shadow Ball. I
could recommend a Normal-type Pokemon to withstand Shadow Ball, but most can't
really fight back due to Ghost-type immunity to Normal-type attacks. If you're
using Raticate, that could help. Alakazam is also a good choice if it has high
enough levels, AKA over Gengar's. Keep in mind that even though they took away
Dream Eater, Gengar still has Hypnosis. Sucker Punch is nothing on Gengar; you
don't need to worry about that. All in all, I found Miltank harder.

---
ADDITIONAL NOTE 1: Peter notes that if you have a Pokewalker, you can obtain a
Kangaskhan on an earlier route. Kangaskhan is awesome here because of Bite and
a high Attack stat. It also has the ability Scrappy, which allows Normal-types
to hit Ghosts. Alex further notes that if you hatch and level up Togepi, it is
able to use the move Extrasensory, a powerful Psychic-type move, from the time
it is hatched in this game.
---
ADDITIONAL NOTE 2: Michael reminds me that even though Normal-type Pokemon are
usually incapable of attacking Ghosts, Gengar can't hurt them if you don't use
a damaging attack; Sucker Punch doesn't work if you're not attacking.

Your Grass-type Pokemon finally have a chance to shine here after four gyms of
relatively little chances (specifically the first two and the fourth). If your
starter is Chikorita (which should be fully evolved by now), it is awesome for
this battle, which is much easier than it was in gen 2.

Both of Chuck's Pokemon know the move Focus Punch, a move with 20 PP and BP of
150. Yes, you read correctly: one hundred fifty. It's as powerful as the likes
of Hyper Beam. The good news? It's a second-turn move, and if your attack hits
it first, it prevents the attack from happening. This essentially means it has
wasted a turn each time it uses Focus Punch. That being said, his Pokemon have
other attacks that are quite powerful as well.

If you came here using Flying-type Pokemon like Pidgeotto, don't lead with one
of them, as Primeape has Rock Slide and a rather high Attack stat boosting it.
If you took my advice during the previous battle and leveled up a Psychic-type
like Alakazam or Hypno, it will crush Primeape with few problems. It'll likely
also bring down Poliwrath as well, unless he gets you first with a STABed Surf
or Body Slam. He also has Hypnosis, which you know all too well after Morty. I
can't say he's even close to as hard as Morty, though. If Poliwrath is somehow
able to bring down your Psychic Pokemon, bring out your Grass-type or maybe an
Electric-type and it will do the rest. Poliwrath has a lot of weaknesses. Lots
of Pokemon you've seen up to this point can do well against it.

---
ADDITIONAL NOTE 1: Michael notes that if you want to try a strategy that isn't
hitting Chuck's Pokemon super-effectively, you can safely try out a Steel-type
Pokemon against Primeape as long as it can prevent it from using Focus Punch.
---
ADDITIONAL NOTE 2: Josh notes that this Poliwrath's ability is Water Absorb; I
had originally listed it as Damp by mistake.

She could have two Magnetons here ... she's like Bugsy ...

Her Pokemon are pathetically weak. She doesn't utilize any of the Steel-type's
potential in this battle; the fact that she uses not one but two Magnemites is
proof of that. Even before gen 3, there were three other Steel-type Pokemon in
the series: Forettress, Scizor and Skarmory. Anyway, none of that is relevant,
so wipe out her Magnemites with whatever you're using - even Water Pokemon can
win here - and let us move on. Keep in mind that they have fairly high Special
Attack, and Thunderbolt may hurt a bit if you're not using a Ground-type.

Her staple Pokemon, Steelix, the Steel-type evolved form of Onix, can be tough
anywhere but in this battle. Iron Tail gets STAB for a supreme total of 150 BP
but is too inaccurate to rely on. Rock Throw is most likely there for the Fire
Pokemon you should be using. It will use Sandstorm this time, instead of Sunny
Day from last time - which is good; I can't even describe how stupid a move it
was to give Steelix Sunny Day - to deal damage to any type that isn't a Rock-,
Steel- or Ground-type, and Screech sharply lowers defense. Oh, and speaking of
Defense, Steelix has a base Defense of 200, so you can use Ground and Fighting
Pokemon here, but I recommend Water and Fire instead.

It doesn't really matter what you use here. Steelix has no real Special stats,
meaning it can be hit hard with Surf and Flamethrower, and no real Speed. More
to the point, if you're having trouble with this battle, it's time to level up
your team a lot more. Not counting Falkner, this is the easiest battle on this
side of the world map.

---
ADDITIONAL NOTE: Michael notes that if you're raising a Magnemite/Magneton and
you want some easy EXP points, they're 4x resistant to Iron Tail and 2x to its
Rock Throw. Supersonic/Sonicboom combinations will take Steelix down handily.

I wish he had something other than Seel, who isn't even part-Ice. Cloyster, or
even Delibird or something, would be awesome ... anyway ...

Pryce's Pokemon have all jumped three levels from gen 2, finally bringing them
up to level with Jasmine's Pokemon. He's also a bit harder this time. He likes
using Hail this time around, which is basically the Ice-type Sandstorm in that
it hurts all types but Ice-types. His moves are better in general. Here we go.

Seel and Dewgong are more or less the same as last time. Ice Shard is the Ice-
type version of Quick Attack, meaning Dewgong will strike first when using it.
Both of them know Rest, which completely restores HP but makes the user sleep,
giving you three free turns to attack. Both get around this anyway - Seel with
Snore, Dewgong with Sleep Talk - but neither are much of a threat. Both can be
taken down easily with Electric-type Pokemon, and Seel with Grass-types if you
feel daring. Dewgong will take longer than Seel to take down, but if you level
up as much as I did, you won't even notice. Ampharos crushed both of them, one
hit each.

Piloswine is still tough and rather resilient, depending on your levels. It'll
now use Hail over Mist, Ice Fang over Icy Wind, and Mud Bomb over Fury Attack.
This gives it STAB for all three of its attacks. If it uses Hail, you will not
only take damage each turn, but Blizzard becomes 100 percent accurate. As it's
now at a BP of 180 due to STAB, you probably won't like that. Watch out if you
use a Fire Pokemon like Typhlosion or Arcanine, as Mud Bomb covers them. I can
also recommend Feraligatr, which hits the Ground-type part of Piloswine super-
effectively and resists Ice attacks, or any Water Pokemon for that matter. Oh,
and Piloswine's ability, Snow Cloak, raises its evasiveness when it's hailing,
so not every move you make will be guaranteed to hit. Keep that in mind.

I love it when a full, complete team comes together like mine did.

This is the first gym battle in the game where you're facing a different line-
up than last gen. She had three Dragonairs last time, and has now brought over
a Gyarados to replace one. With this in mind, you should lead with an Electric
Pokemon, as Gyarados has a 4x weakness to that. Its only other weakness is the
Rock-type, which you could probably also use here since Gyarados has no Water-
type moves to use. In fact, the only attack that will hit hard is Bite... just
shock it out of the battle.

Her pair of Dragonairs are a bit tougher this time around. Both of them use an
awesome move called Dragon Pulse, which does 90 BP of regular damage, and both
have Slam and Thunder Wave, which you've seen before. The first Dragonair uses
Fire Blast; the second uses Aqua Tail. Because of this, you shouldn't be using
Piloswine if you decide on an Ice Pokemon for this battle. Fire Blast is quite
powerful, but still inaccurate, so your other Ice Pokemon should be OK. Lapras
and Dewgong are solid choices.

---
NOTE: Tim tells me that both Dragonairs use Aqua Tail. I used Ditto and Trans-
form to record the moves for this battle the first time, so I'm not quite sure
what to tell you all, but this is just to acknowledge that I've heard about it
and do note it here, in case you're surprised when you do fight this battle. 
---

Her staple Pokemon, Kingdra, is even more powerful than last time. She now has
Hydro Pump and Dragon Pulse over Surf and Dragonbreath, and Kingdra's ability,
Sniper, gives all of her critical hits more power. All three attacks have more
than 100 BP each - Dragon Pulse because of STAB - and Kingdra has no weakness,
not unless you have a Dragonair of your own. Even if you did, Kingdra is a lot
stronger, faster, and all around better than Dragonair. In light of this, I am
going to do the same thing I did with Gengar and not recommend using something
specific. Electric- and Psychic-types are great choices, and Normal-types will
sometimes be solid as well, but it's really your call; just make sure whatever
you use can take hits from Hydro Pump, which has a whopping 180 BP.

And with that, the gym challenge of Johto concludes.

Rather than post my team five separate times for five consecutive battles, I'm
going to post it here as it is before I challenged the Elite Four. I had a few
questions asking how I was able to get some of the moves I have listed here. I
can tell you that a lot of trading between this game and my Platinum file, and
my brother's SoulSilver file, was done to get these moves. I regret nothing. I
spent a lot of time training in Victory Road to get those levels. I hate those
Golbats and Gravelers with a burning passion now, despite having their evolved
forms in my line-up.

Anyway, on to the elites!

Aside from the revamping of his Xatu pair, he's pretty much the same as he was
in gen 2. All five of his Pokemon are dual-types, and all five of them can use
Psychic. However, if you have a Fire Pokemon and Electric Pokemon, you can win
this battle even without the obvious types of choice. Here we go. For this and
the following Elite Four battles, I will be doing personal synopsises for each
of his Pokemon unless I tell you otherwise.

The lesser-leveled of the two Xatus leads his team. If you remember your fight
with Bugsy, you'll remember the powerful U-Turn, which is Baton Pass that does
damage. This is for the Dark-type Pokemon you may or may not have. It also has
Me First, which will take whatever damaging attack you use against him in that
turn and attack first with it for 1.5x the damage. Pray to God that you're not
using a move like Hyper Beam when he does this. Ghost and Electric are the top
choices here.

Jynx is a bit annoying, but not nearly as much as some of the Pokemon you have
faced before now, namely Miltank. Lovely Kiss puts you to sleep ala moves like
Hypnosis and Sleep Powder, and Ice Punch and Psychic are pretty standard here.
Why it has Doubleslap is beyond me. A Fire-type will take it down pretty well;
just watch out for Psychic.

Exeggutor is strong, but unfortunately rather easy to KO due to its many, many
weaknesses, the main one being Bug-type Pokemon. You've had access to Bug-type
Pokemon for the entire game, so it shouldn't be too hard to bring a Butterfree
or Scyther with a powerful Bug attack that can take down Exeggutor. If not, it
has five or six other weaknesses, so hit one of those. Hypnosis is annoying as
always, and Egg Bomb is a powerful Normal-type attack.

You've seen Slowbro a few times before, I think. It has Water Pulse, which can
confuse you on occasion; Curse, which cuts Speed but raises Attack and Defense
in turn; and Amnesia, which brings up its Special Defense by two stages. A lot
of its weaknesses will be harder to exploit as a result, so take it down soon,
or use a good physical move that's super-effective. If you can't do either, it
isn't particularly strong, so use anything you want that won't get creamed.

His staple Pokemon is his stronger Xatu, which has more type-coverage than the
last. Aerial Ace never misses, just like Swift, and Ominous Wind is a powerful
Ghost-type move that has a small chance of raising all its stats by one stage.
You know Confuse Ray and Psychic by now. It'll go down the same way as Xatu 1,
at any rate.

This is pretty much the same battle as it was in gen 2. Some attacks have been
changed since last time - notably Gunk Shot on Muk and Poison Fang on Crobat -
but otherwise you're basically facing the same fight again. There're obviously
some better moves now (because let's face it, the Poison-type had nothing much
to work with before gen 3 other than Sludge and Sludge Bomb) than before.

Ariados is one of his Pokemon that has changed slightly, now using Poison Jab,
a physical Poison-type move that is rather powerful, but not on Ariados. Flame
it to the ground the way you normally would. Keep in mind that it knows Grass-
type Giga Drain if you're using a Rock-type.

His Venomoth remains unchanged except in its ability, Tinted Lens, which gives
all of its moves that are "not very effective" a nice boost. Since Venomoth is
crap and you're probably using something strong against it, this works wonders
for Venomoth. That being said, you'll probably off it long before Psychic and,
well, anything becomes a threat to you. Will is the Psychic here.

Forettress isn't a Poison-type Pokemon at all, and I have no idea why Koga has
one. It's part-Bug, part-Steel, meaning it has some pretty nice Defense... and
that's about it. Its only weakness is Fire, and with moves like Lava Plume and
Flamethrower at your disposal, there's absolutely no reason you can't off this
thing in one hit unless you're not using a Fire-type.

You'll remember Muk from earlier in the game, as well as from every battle you
have faced Koga in in every game ever. Aside from swapping Sludge Bomb for its
most powerful Poison attack, Gunk Shot, Muk hasn't changed much. It has a hold
item called Black Sludge, which is basically the same as Leftovers in that his
HP will increase a small bit each turn unless it's full. Doesn't really matter
much, since you should be using moves like Psychic and Earthquake anyway (your
new TM for Earthquake found in Victory Road will be put to excellent use here,
and is really there to be used against the Elite Four anyway). Also, if you're
using Steelix or another Steel-type Pokemon, Muk can't even touch you. Keep in
mind that it will spam Minimize and Acid Armor if you do this, though.

Last but certainly not least is Crobat, our favorite fully-evolved bat that is
the fully evolved form of Zubat. As much as we all hate Zubat, it's impossible
to hate Crobat because it's too awesome. Poison Fang is a pretty weak offense,
but it gets STAB and has a chance of badly poisoning you, ala Toxic. Have some
Full Heals ready for that. It thankfully doesn't have Supersonic, Confuse Ray,
or anything else that can possibly confuse you, but it does have Double Team -
which isn't terrible, as moves like Shock Wave and Faint Attack can still hurt
it without chance of missing. It has immense Speed, so you likely will not use
something faster unless you have Alakazam or something similar, but its Attack
isn't much to write home about, so you should be all right.

Easily one of the easiest boss battles you've faced so far; aside from Machamp
and maybe Hitmonlee, you won't face any real danger here. One thing you should
note is that all of his Pokemon, aside from maybe Onix, have abilities that'll
almost uniquely help them. You should have a fair amount of knowledge in terms
of dealing with Fighting-type Pokemon by this point anyway, courtesy of Chuck.

Hitmontop no longer has Detect, which makes him infinitely better in my books;
however, his ability (which you've previously seen on Bugsy's Scyther) gives a
1.5x boost to Quick Attack and all three hits from Triple Kick. Dig isn't much
of a threat, but it does waste a turn for you if Hitmontop goes first. Counter
dishes out twice the power of whatever physical move you use right back at you
when it's used. Obviously this means you should use Special-based attacks.

Hitmonlee is awesome. Hi Jump Kick and Blaze Kick are two moves that work best
on Hitmonlee due to its ability, Reckless, which increases kicking-based moves
in power by 20%, though it also increases recoil damage. Blaze Kick is unique,
a move that only Hitmonlee and Blaziken can learn, and Swagger boosts your own
Attack stat by two stages, but then confuses you. The basic point is that your
strategy should revolve around KO'ing Hitmonlee in as few hits as possible.

Hitmonchan also has a beneficial ability unique to itself. Iron Fist powers up
all punching-based moves, also by 20%, but with no catch this time. Hitmonchan
uses four punching attacks, all different types, to take advantage of this. It
uses the three elemental punches, most of which you've seen before, and Bullet
Punch, which is a Steel-type attack that always lands first. Hitmonchan is not
a slouch offensively, so this could be a problem if you can't take it down. At
most, however, you might need one Hyper Potion.

Onix is a joke. Surf it into the ground.

Bruno's staple Pokemon, Machamp, has only changed a little bit. He is the best
on Bruno's team, and uses three powerful moves to prove this. Foresight allows
it to hit Ghosts. Its ability, No Guard, assures perfect accuracy for both you
and Bruno as long as Machamp is in play. This means that Cross Chop will be an
awfully powerful attack, and Rock Slide will take out any Flying-types you use
on it. Revenge does double damage if you hit Machamp first and it does not get
KO'd. Use a Psychic Pokemon, a fast one like Alakazam, and you're fine.

Actually, just use Alakazam for this whole battle, and it'll be over before it
began.

The interesting thing about this battle is that you've seen all of her Pokemon
at least once before, and with the exception of Umbreon, each one of them were
in major battles. Her specialty is Dark-type Pokemon, which there weren't many
of back in gen 2, though her not having a Sneasel is something I don't get, as
your rival has one. Anyway, she makes up for the two missing Dark-type Pokemon
with two night-based Pokemon to keep the five-Pokemon team that is seemingly a
requirement of the Elite Four. She's still the toughest of the four, and takes
a long while to defeat unless you have all the right types, so let's get right
to business.

You faced Umbreon recently, when you battled the Kimono dancers. It has a s***
ton of Defense, but isn't that strong. That being said, it will take many hits
before it goes down, and she'll heal it with Full Restores in the meantime. It
will use Double Team and Confuse Ray to their full potential of annoyance, and
Faint Attack never misses. Fighting-types work best, although you can't do any
wrong using a Steel-type to resist attacks as well. Don't worry, though; it is
not hard to beat, just long.

You faced Vileplume when you faced Executive Ariana. It's much easier than her
Umbreon, its only real threat being Petal Dance. You can probably take it down
while it's using this if you use a Flying-type. I'd save your Psychics for the
next battle; use your Fire- or Flying-types here. It's very easy to bring down
due to its double typing.

You remember Morty's Gengar? It makes this one look like a joke, despite being
twenty levels lower. This one actually has Lick, the worst possible Ghost-type
move it could use here. That being said, if you're using a Dark-type here, you
will be pulverized with Focus Blast if it hits. It will likely use its Destiny
Bond a fair bit in the hopes of KO'ing you when you KO it. Be wary of Spite as
well, as you need your PP for the next battle. You should be fine, though.

Murkrow, another of Ariana's Pokemon you've seen before, is slightly better in
this battle than Gengar, but not by much. It has decent Speed and offense, but
doesn't take much advantage of either. You've seen all of its moves other than
Pluck, which steals the effects of whatever Berry you may be holding. Electric
attacks are awesome here, as always.

Her staple Pokemon is Houndoom, who was also the staple Pokemon of Team Rocket
leader Archer's team. It has enormous Special Attack, and Nasty Plot will give
it even greater Special Attack when used, by two stages. Flamethrower and Dark
Pulse both run off Special Attack, and both get STAB. I'm not really sure what
Crunch is doing here... unless your Pokemon has high Special Defense, which it
might, but another Special stat attack would have been a better choice. Easier
for you, I guess. The usual types that crush Fire-types work well here, but it
falls to Fighting-types as well. Or you can Surf/Earthquake it.

This is it, the grand finale! Well, not really.

Unlike last time, he doesn't use Hyper Beam universally on his team; his three
Dragonites are the only ones using it now. All of his Pokemon except his level
50 Dragonite have gained two extra levels each as well since gen 2, so you may
or may not face some trouble here. You really shouldn't be too underleveled in
this battle, though, unless you just didn't want to get high levels.

Surprisingly, the only move that Gyarados kept from its original moveset is an
awful move called Flail. It now has Waterfall and Ice Fang, and both are great
on Gyarados due to its massive Attack stat. Any Electric-type Pokemon is great
here as well, just as they always have been. Dragon Pulse is the same as ever:
rather useless on Gyarados.

The first two Dragonites are similar to before, except they're now sporting an
awesome Dragon-type move called Dragon Rush, which runs off their Attack stat.
Hyper Beam isn't that strong on Dragonite, but will still deal a lot of damage
to you, and the two elemental attacks aren't much to note as they're both very
inaccurate. Have Full Heals ready in case they use Thunder Wave. You should be
using at least one Ice-type Pokemon, and they'll be great here if they're high
enough in level and can withstand Dragon Rush.

Aerodactyl has four physical moves, two of which get STAB. Its Aerial Ace will
never miss; it's the Flying-type Swift. Thunder Fang takes out your Water-type
Pokemon, though they'll probably be strong enough to win anyway, and Crunch is
a generally strong Dark-type move for Pokemon like Aerodactyl. Its Rock attack
is now Rock Slide, which is no longer hacked now that it's a TM again. Anyway,
Electric- and Water-types work well here, but a Steel-type is your best choice
here since it resists everything but Thunder Fang, which Steelix gets around.

Charizard has gone through the most changes of his team, now using four strong
attacks to contend with your entire team. Fire Fang is the Fire-type Bite, and
can both burn and flinch your Pokemon. Air Slash may also make you flinch, and
is a Special move. Shadow Claw, a Ghost-type attack, is pretty much the Ghost-
type Slash attack, and Dragon Claw is a regular Dragon-type attack that has 80
BP. If you have a Rock-type Pokemon, be smart and use it here.

Bringing up the rear is his original Dragonite, which is almost the same as it
was last time. Outrage is now insanely strong due to being a Physical move; if
you use a Steel-type, however, it has Fire Blast for that and for Ice-types. I
still recommend Ice-types, though, if they're dual-Water as well. My Lapras is
awesome here, and Dewgong or Cloyster would be as well. Taking down his staple
Pokemon will bring out the end of the battle and the Johto championship.

And remember, this was just the beginning.

| 5: KANTO GYM LEADER GUIDE | KGL00 |
=====================================

Just like last time, once you beat the Elite Four and its Champion, you get to
go off to Kanto to face the gym leaders there. This time, however, they aren't
pushovers by any means. All the leaders but Blue have leveled up their Pokemon
by at least seven levels each. They are all in the high 40s and 50s in levels,
even beyond Lance. If you want to keep up, you'll want to be at least near 50,
if not above, in team average. It's not all that hard, really.

On with the guide. I will be listing the Kanto gym leaders in the same order I
used in my previous guide.

I can't emphasize it enough: bring a Ground-type to this battle. Anything will
do: Golem, Onix, Gligar, etc. As long as it has a good attack to deal a super-
effective hit, this battle will be over long before you need my help with it.

Four of his five Pokemon know Shock Wave, a mildly strong Electric-type attack
that never misses. It's basically the Electric version of Swift, Faint Attack,
etc. Four of his five - but not the same four - also know Double Team. I think
you know that one all too well. Finally, four of his five Pokemon have a cool,
yet annoying ability called Static, which may paralyze your Pokemon if it uses
an attack that makes direct contact with the Pokemon, even if it's Ground-type
and immune to electricity. Luckily for you, Earthquake doesn't require you get
up close and personal.

Raichu, Surge's original staple Pokemon, is not all that threatening. It's got
some nice offense, but no real defense to speak of. It has the same moveset as
it had when you faced Surge in gen 3, with Shock Wave being its strongest move
and with Double Team and Thunder Wave serving as an irritation combination. It
shouldn't take too long to beat.

His two Electrodes are pretty similar. One uses Shock Wave; the other uses the
move Charge Beam, which has 50 BP, 90% accuracy, and has a small chance of its
Special Attack increasing by one stage. A weak move, in other words. Both will
use Double Team; one will Selfdestruct, and the other will use Light Screen; I
don't know why, as it's the physical defense it needs to worry about. Watch it
for Selfdestruct; otherwise, these two are nothing noteworthy.

You've faced Magneton before, against your rival; you should have an idea with
how to beat it from your battle with Jasmine. Basically, it's their big bloody
weakness to Ground-types. Mirror Shot will lower accuracy, which sucks, but it
falls so quickly to Ground-types that you shouldn't even have to worry. Pummel
it the same way you always do, nothing's changed here.

His final and new staple Pokemon, Electabuzz, is one that, like the rest, goes
all the way back to gen 1. It has decent stats all around, but it has terrible
moves. Low Kick is for Pokemon like Golem and Steelix, to which it does a hell
of a lot of damage; it does more damage to heavier Pokemon. Doesn't matter, as
my Golem took it down before it actually became a problem.

Unlike in gen 2, you get TMs from all eight Kanto gym leaders instead of Erika
and Janine only.

All three of her Pokemon are now above level 50, having jumped up seven levels
each. This means that you need to be at or above level 50 as well, or you will
be in for a really tough battle. All three of her Pokemon know Psychic, a move
you're quite familiar with, and Skill Swap, a move that switches the abilities
of the two Pokemon in play until they're switched out. If you're using someone
with a great ability, don't bring it here if it can't win without it.

To be honest, I found Espeon to be the hardest. Psychic will literally destroy
anything it's strong against, so leave your Fighting- and Poison-types out for
now, which you should be doing anyway. Don't use a Ghost Pokemon to fight with
Espeon, either, as Shadow Ball will destroy it - and if it's Haunter or Gengar
then it will be crushed by Psychic anyway, unless you're faster using your own
Shadow Ball. No, you want a Dark-type here. I know they're in low demand - for
whatever reason, Umbreon's the only one you can get before Kanto - but they're
amazing here since they're immune to Psychic and repel Shadow Ball. Espeon may
start using Calm Mind to boost Special Attack and Special Defense, but several
Dark-type moves like Faint Attack are physical anyway. Take it out before it's
too strong to take down due to Calm Mind.

Mr. Mime isn't all that noteworthy, except for somehow being the only feminine
Pokemon on Sabrina's team (Mrs. Mime?). It's the weakest on Sabrina's team; it
instead relies on defensive strategies. Light Screen cuts your Special attacks
down by a fair amount, so use moves like Faint Attack here as well. If you use
a non-Psychic Pokemon with something like Crunch, though, that'll work as well
since Mr. Mime really isn't all that strong. It's more a staller than anything
else.

Sabrina's staple Pokemon, Alakazam, will obliterate you if you come unprepared
for this battle. A base Special Attack of 135 means it's pretty much unrivaled
by non-legendary Psychic Pokemon, except for Espeon. Energy Ball is an awesome
Grass-type move, and I have no idea why Alakazam has it. Reflect will cut down
all physical moves the same way Light Screen did to special moves, which isn't
good because it's the Defense stat that you're aiming for here. Don't use your
Water Pokemon here, period. Instead, bring a Dark-type Pokemon that can take a
hit from Energy Ball, or bring a Steel-type so you can resist both Psychic and
Energy Ball. All in all, this is one of the tougher battles in the game, but I
don't think it's as hard as some of the battles you've gone through, like your
battles with Clair and Karen.

Very similar to your battle with Koga, but Koga's way better. If you were able
to beat Sabrina, this battle is a cakewalk in comparison. Poison-type Pokemon,
as they are, have always been tricky in battle, but it's only really her first
two Pokemon that take true advantage of that.

You faced Crobat before, against Koga. It's not as tough as Koga's despite its
level being three higher, so whatever strategy you used last time will beat it
here as well. It has the worst moveset I've ever seen in-game, by a long shot.
I mean, Supersonic AND Confuse Ray? Really now?

You've faced Weezings in the past, and this one is only a little better. It'll
use Sludge Bomb a lot, which you've seen before, and Toxic, which may poison a
Pokemon badly. It has Levitate, which makes Ground-type attacks useless, so it
only has a Psychic weakness. Take full advantage of this. Watch out if it uses
Explosion; it'll wipe out most Psychics.

Venomoth and the two Ariados are pretty similar, and are similarly easy to off
in battle. Both Ariados know Poison Jab, a fairly strong Poison-type, and Bug-
type Pin Missile, which is weak. The first one knows Psychic; the second knows
Night Shade. You should have no trouble with either. Whatever you use to crush
them will crush Venomoth as well, who is far better than Koga's, but still too
weak to do anything much to you.

A literal walk in the park.

All four of her Pokemon have the ability Chlorophyll, which means that the use
of Sunny Day will double their speed. Knowing this, don`t use Sunny Day if you
can help it. Three of her four Pokemon have Sunny Day anyway, so have yourself
a Fire-type Pokemon ready. If you do, it'll probably take out all four of them
anyway, as they have pathetic movesets: just look at Victreebel's moves. Also,
three of her four Pokemon know Giga Drain, which takes half the damage it does
to you and heals itself with it. Grass-types are very weak against Flying- and
Fire-types, and you should honestly have both in your team anyway, so go ahead
and destroy all of them. Here's some quick synopsises just in case you do need
some help, since everyone faces things differently in this series.

Jumpluff is part-Grass, part-Flying, and the first thought some people have is
to kill it with fire. However, it's much, much more vulnerable to ice. Nothing
it does is threatening; U-Turn serves the usual purposes, and Leech Seed often
doesn't do much of anything, since it's easy to escape from. You can take this
thing down with pretty much anything. It has almost no stats to speak of. 

Tangela is actually pretty good, but still nothing special. Ancientpower is an
average-powered Rock-type move that has a small chance of increasing every one
of its stats by one stage each. It's there for the Fire- and Ice-types you use
against it, and it will deal a fair bit of damage since Tangela has some half-
decent Special Attack going for it as well. On the other hand, it will go down
pretty easily since the rest of its moves suck.

I'm not bothering to explain Victreebel. It has three Grass-type attacks and a
Fire-type increasing move. Burn it down. Keep in mind that Leaf Storm destroys
you if you don't use Fire. Her Bellossom is the same level and is a lot better
than Victreebel, with some good stats all around. If it uses Sunny Day, it may
actually be strong and fast enough to take out Fire-type Pokemon. Synthesis is
much better in sunlight as well, so watch out for that. Of course, Bellossom's
an idiot if it relies on Sunny Day while you're using a Fire-type. Your chance
of losing against Grass-types should be nil at this point in the game.

All four of her Pokemon know the move Water Pulse, an attack with a base power
of 60 that will sometimes confuse the target. With STAB, the base power is 90,
which is fairly powerful. In addition, all four have a second move to hit with
for solid damage, some of them even getting STAB there, too. Be on your guard,
as it's not as simple as waltzing in with a Pikachu anymore. Oh, and you might
consider bringing a Grass-type, since Quagsire is immune to Electric-types and
all they entail. Don't use it against Lapras or Starmie, though.

Misty opens with Golduck, a pure Water-type Pokemon that can use Psychic, plus
the obvious Water Pulse, to cover its meh defenses. Psych Up will copy any and
all of your stat changes - whether they increased or decreased - and copy them
to itself, so if you start boosting your Special Attack or Speed, Golduck will
do the same using Psych Up. Disable is as useless as ever. You should not have
too many problems taking Golduck down.

As I said above, Quagsire completely resists Electric-type attacks. Its Ground
attribute is to thank for that. The typing covers all weaknesses aside for one
type: Grass. If you throw in an Electric-type anyway, you'll get crushed by an
Earthquake. Meanwhile, Grass-type Pokemon resist Earthquake and inflict double
damage to both types, which is four times damage. She tries to camouflage this
weakness with Amnesia, which raises Special Defense by two stages in one go. I
can't see this being a problem, but who knows, it might be. You just got an OK
Grass-type move from Erika, though, so it probably won't be.

If you're like me, you already know Lapras's strengths and weaknesses through,
well, using it up until this point. Both of its moves get STAB, making it that
much harder to withstand them, especially Ice Beam. Body Slam may paralyze you
on contact, and Sing may put you to sleep. Don't use a Grass-type in this bout
or it will get frozen to death. Whip out your Electric-type - or even a strong
Fighting-type will do, as they're powerful against Ice-types - and beat it up.
Keep in mind that Lapras has a s***load of HP and rather good Special Defense,
so it might take some hits before finally going down.

She's had Starmie since the very beginning, so you should be all too familiar.
It has high Speed, high Special stats and decently good defenses, so it's able
to sweep weak teams. It has Ice Beam like Lapras, but doesn't get STAB. If the
Rain Dance Quagsire used earlier is still going, you might want to use Thunder
due to it being one hundred percent accurate in rain. Whatever you do, try not
to let Confuse Ray get you down, and mind its Recover.

I'm disappointed in the Brock. Half of his team remains unevolved - though his
Onix obviously can't evolve - and all five of his Pokemon have a mega weakness
to Grass, and three of the five to Water. You recently got a decent Grass-type
move from Erika, and you have Surf already; put them to good use here. I'm not
going into further detail than that. You've seen all of these moves before, at
some point or another. One thing you should note: Battle Armor and Shell Armor
both prevent you from landing critical hits. As if that means anything here.

This battle is slightly harder than it was in gen 2, but nothing too difficult
if you're at high enough levels; you don't need to be as overleveled as I was,
to be clear. All three of his Pokemon are nine levels higher than they were in
gen 2, and all three now sport the move Overheat, a Fire-type attack with high
BP - a whopping 140, that is - that comes with a Special Attack reduction with
each use. This means that the more it's used, the weaker it gets. It won't hit
too hard against Water- and Rock-types anyway, unless you're using weak Water-
and Rock-types. My Golem did just fine, so you should be OK. All three Pokemon
are also holding White Herbs, which restore stats the moment they decrease, so
Blaine gets a second chance with each Pokemon's Overheat.

Magcargo uses moves you've seen before outside of Overheat, and has two double
weaknesses: Water and Ground. If you have a Quagsire, it will have a field day
here. You've seen Magmar several times before: it has good offensive stats. On
top of Overheat, it knows Thunderpunch to deal with Water-types. Simply 'cause
it can, I assume, it uses Confuse Ray as well. Bear in mind that both have the
ability Flame Body, which will burn anything that uses contact attacks. Ground
Pokemon are your best bet here.

Rapidash is fast and strong. It has a Fire-type attack for each offensive stat
and each has more than 100 BP to deal out some serious damage. It uses Bounce,
a Flying-type move that works just like Fly, but may paralyze you as well. Its
defenses are frail, but it can stall with Bounce, so Surf/Earthquake it before
it can wear you down too much.

Yes, for the first time in ages, you get to use an HM move after this battle.

This is the most diverse gym leader you'll ever face, simply because Blue used
to be a rival and a champion before he became a gym leader. He covers each and
every one of his weaknesses, so this is going to be the best and hardest fight
you've faced in this game so far. He's changed his team around a lot since gen
2, switching Alakazam for Machamp and making Pidgeot his new staple Pokemon as
opposed to Arcanine. You've seen all of these Pokemon before, too. Here we go.

Blue now leads with Exeggutor, which you've seen before on Will's team back at
the Elite Four. It will likely lead with Trick Room, a strange move that swaps
the order of battle for five turns. The slowest Pokemon will move first, swift
Pokemon will move later, etc. It's pretty straightforward once you've seen it.
Leaf Storm is the Grass-type version of Overheat, and you've seen Hypnosis and
Psychic before. A Bug-type would destroy Exeggutor, but Fire-types work almost
as well.

You've faced Gyarados at least half a dozen times by now, and so you know very
well how it works. This one takes full advantage of its Attack stat by knowing
Ice Fang and Waterfall, and increases both Attack and Speed with Dragon Dance.
Return increases in power depending on how much Blue loves him. Evidently it's
a lot, judging from my battle with him. At any rate, the usual Thunderbolts or
whatever you use will send him packing pretty quickly.

Blue now has a Machamp for some reason, which you've seen before against Bruno
of the Elite Four. All four of its moves utilize its massive Attack stat, plus
it has No Guard to make all four moves perfectly accurate. Dynamicpunch, which
normally has s*** accuracy, will now hit and confuse you with scary precision.
Unfortunately for Blue, Machamp can't really strike back against Psychic-types
yet, so bring out a good one like my Hypno and tear it apart.

Ah, Rhydon. One of my favorite gen 1 Pokemon. You've seen it before, but Brock
didn't have one because he didn't evolve his Rhyhorn, so I can't remember when
you faced it. Anyway, it has four powerful attacks, and even attempts to cover
its weaknesses with Megahorn and Thunder Fang - a valiant effort, but one that
is utterly pointless, as Rhydon is too frail and slow to last against its main
weaknesses. Surf it.

Arcanine, Blue's former staple Pokemon, is the same level as last time, though
it's much stronger now. It has Flare Blitz over Flamethrower, and Dragon Pulse
over Swift, on top of the powerful ExtremeSpeed, which is pretty much a better
Quick Attack. It'll use Roar when its HP runs down, so try to use strong, fast
moves to knock it out quickly. Other than that, well, I think you saw one back
at Blaine's gym, but I can't remember. It wasn't Blaine's, that I know.

Pidgeot is Blue's new staple Pokemon. It isn't very tough, but it is at a high
level, possibly the highest a gym leader has ever been at without counting any
rematches. Since Blue has had it since the beginning, you can bet that Return,
which you saw on Gyarados, will be as powerful as it possibly can here. Mirror
Move uses your last used move back against you, and you've seen Air Slash back
against Lance before. Whirlwind is there for the same reason Roar was, so keep
that in mind when you're electrocuting Pidgeot like you should be doing. Also,
bear in mind that Tangled Feet will kick in if you confuse Pidgeot, upping its
evasiveness by twenty percent. So don't confuse it. And with that, the highest
leveled gym leader is done and over with.

Now, for the real champion...

=======================================
| 6: THE REAL CHAMPION BATTLE | RCHBT |
=======================================

Red, the strongest trainer in the game, awaits you on Mt. Silver after you are
finished clearing the sixteen gyms, just like last time. This time, though, he
waits at Mt. Silver's summit, which happens to be outside. Yes sir, the battle
that transcends all in-game battles comes with a catch: it will be hailing the
entire time. You can still use Sunny Day, Rain Dance, or Sandstorm to alter it
back to your liking if you want, but I wouldn't bother. Then again, one of his
Pokemon isn't hurt by Hail, and three of them have attacks made better because
of Hail, so you may decide to anyway. My only complaint is that it renders the
battle rather anticlimactic. Oh, well. Let the final battle begin!

Welcome to the toughest battle you'll ever fight in-game.

You didn't read it wrong: the level average is actually 84. Red's lowest level
is still twenty higher than Blue's highest, and Blue was the strongest trainer
we'd fought so far before getting to Red. If you want to win, you need a good,
diverse team with some of the highest levels possible. My team of six level 75
Pokemon was not a joke. You can do it with Pokemon in the 60s, but it's really
hard and really frustrating. Three of his Pokemon have Blizzard, and as you'll
recall from your battle with Pryce, hail gives Blizzard perfect accuracy. Your
strategies might be unwound due to this, but I doubt it. Here we go.

He leads with his staple Pokemon, Pikachu, the mascot of the series. Its moves
are the same four moves that Pikachu used the most in the anime's Sinnoh saga,
and it holds a Light Ball, which doubles both offensive stats on Pikachu. This
means that Thunderbolt and Volt Tackle will hit horribly hard unless you're in
possession of something immune to it, and even if you are, Iron Tail will also
hit hard. Now you know why Ash's Pikachu is so strong ... it eats Light Balls.
Anyway, a solid Earthquake should put it down if you don't lose first.

Red now has a Lapras, replacing his old Espeon. It's a strong contender for it
having the most HP you've ever seen in a gen 2 ingame session, unless you have
level 100s at your disposal. Brine does more damage when you're at half HP, or
less, which makes it a strong finishing move. It and Blizzard get STAB as well
for massive damage; Psychic and Body Slam are just coverage. Get your Electric
Pokemon out and start throwing out Thunderbolts and Discharges. It might take,
well, several hits to get KO'd if you're underleveled; it took my Ampharos two
hits with Discharge at level 75 ...

His Snorlax is completely revamped. Its only real threat in gen 2 was the Body
Slam attack, which, while strong, is no Giga Impact. Now it has four awesomely
powerful moves, giving it a lot of coverage. Giga Impact is its strongest move
yet, with 225 BP when STAB is calculated; if you're using a Fighting-type, you
might want to use a defensive one, unless you're using Machamp. Luckily, it no
longer has Rest, so its HP will stay down once you whittle it down. Use a good
Fighting-type with awesome attacks and you should - note: SHOULD - be OK.

Venusaur, the fully evolved Grass starter of Kanto, can take beatings. It uses
Frenzy Plant, the Grass-type Hyper Beam, to deal insane damage, but you'll get
a free turn afterward. You've seen the other three attacks before. It's a boss
among Grass/Poison typings that you've only seen a thousand times before here.
I'm recommending a Steel-type Pokemon, though, as they will repel every attack
Venusaur can throw at you. Scizor is the best choice.

Charizard, the fully evolved Fire starter of Kanto, can deal bearings. It uses
Blast Burn, the Fire-type Hyper Beam, to deal some serious damage, but you get
a free turn afterward. You've seen the other three attacks before. If it's got
the Special Defense to take on Dragon Pulse, I recommend a Rock-type here, but
Water-types work as well. Air Slash is the biggest threat here, because of the
flinching it causes, and Charizard is really fast.

Blastoise, the fully evolved Water starter of Kanto, is insanely powerful, and
remarkably durable, too. It has Hydro Cannon, the Water-type Hyper Beam, which
dishes out a lot of damage, but you get a free turn afterward. It can also use
Flash Cannon, a Steel-type move with 80 BP. You know the other two attacks, of
course. It has moves that nail almost every type for rather serious damage, so
there isn't really anything I can suggest here unless your Electric-type is an
absolute monster. Ghost- and Psychic-types with Electric-type attacks can work
here, too. Just do what you can. It's probably Red's strongest Pokemon.

---
ADDITIONAL NOTE: I'm told by Michael E. that after taking out Pikachu, you can
use Bronzong against the rest of Red's team, even at as low a level as 60. You
can use it to resist most of Lapras's attacks, and then juice it up with the X
increase items such as X Speed and X Special. Upon doing so, it will be strong
enough to take on the rest of Red's team if it has Heatproof for Charizard. It
should probably have Hypnosis as well.
---

And that's that. You beat the most powerful trainer. Congrats.

| 7: JOHTO GYM LEADER GUIDE - SECOND WAVE | JGR00 |
===================================================

After all is said and done, you can rebattle the sixteen gym leaders with much
better movesets and vastly higher levels (for Johto, anyway). A lot of old and
even new faces make returns here, so it should be nice and challenging. It's a
lot of experience points to gain, anyway. You can actually start getting every
gym leader's phone number for rematches after beating Blue the first time, but
I beat Red first, so that's the order I'm doing it in this guide. Anyway, here
we go.

***
To get Falkner's phone number, look for him in the Celadon Department Store on
Monday during the day. He is found on the fourth floor, talking to Janine.
***

Yeah, this is the same Falkner we crushed before waaaay back when. He only had
a Pidgey and Pidgeotto then. Now he has a team of six of the most known Flying
Pokemon in the series.

Staraptor first got here in this gen, first seen in Diamond and Pearl. It uses
the powerful moves Brave Bird and Close Combat, so your Rock-types aren't safe
here. Brave Bird is like Double-Edge for Flying-types, and gets STAB too. Both
of Staraptor's defenses get reduced with each use of Close Combat, making it a
lot easier to beat it later. It has Bugsy's and Whitney's TM moves, U-Turn and
Attract, so be ready to deal with them accordingly.

Pelipper was first seen in gen 3, and is more or less a weaker Gyarados. Match
it the same way you would a Gyarados: with Electric attacks. In case you don't
know, Tailwind increases the speed of Falkner's team for three turns. I shan't
say much about Hidden Power, since it's random. Zap it out of the sky.

Noctowl's always been pretty tough. You've seen all of these moves before with
the possible exception of Featherdance, which reduces your Attack stat. Roost,
if you recall, takes away its Flying-type attribute for the turn it's used, so
try to KO it before it uses Roost. It has decent defenses for a bird, but this
shouldn't be too difficult, especially if you're a higher level.

Swellow, like Pelipper, was first seen in gen 3. It's the fastest bird Pokemon
in the series up to this point, ranked ninth altogether in terms of Speed stat
if you only count the Deoxys forms once. It has a Flame Orb, which burns it. I
was confused, too, until it started using Facade, a move that deals double the
damage it normally does (70 BP) if the user is paralyzed, poisoned, or burned.
If you whittle its HP down, it'll use Endeavor to reduce your HP down to match
its own. It also uses Protect and Double Team a lot. Other than that, it's not
that different from Staraptor or Pidgeot.

Honchkrow, the evolved form of Murkrow, is powerful Attack-wise, but slow when
compared to the rest of Falkner's team. If you have a Steelix, it repels every
single attack Honchkrow can throw at it and is immune to Thunder Wave. If not,
your Electric-type will probably KO it on one hit anyway. Keep in mind that it
has Night Slash, which is powerful on Honchkrow.

Last but not least is his Pidgeot, which evolved from one of his former birds.
It has no damaging Flying-type moves, and you've seen everything else it might
use before now. If you took out Blue's Pidgeot with no trouble, this one can't
be too much of a problem, since it's much weaker. All in all, this is a pretty
tame battle compared to some of the other rematches.

***
To get Bugsy's phone number, go to the Viridian Forest on Thursdays during the
day; you'll find him almost right near the exit to Viridian City.
***

He ditched Metapod and Kakuna and evolved his Scyther, and built a pretty damn
good team of Bug-type elites around it. Fortunately for you, almost all of his
Pokemon have double weaknesses; a Charizard would have an incredibly easy time
with this battle, for example, especially if it uses a Rock-type move as well.
I'm assuming you don't, so I'll go into detail as normal. You might find a lot
of this battle tricky as well, but it's really easy, I assure you.

He leads with Scizor, his strongest Pokemon. Bullet Punch attacks first and is
boosted by both STAB and Scizor's ability, Technician, for a grand total of 90
BP. Superpower is a physical Fighting-type move that has 120 BP - awesome, yes
I know - but lowers its Attack and Defense by one stage with each use. You may
or may not have seen X-Scissor before; it's one of the stronger Bug-type moves
that three of Bugsy's Pokemon have. Now, look at Scizor's typing. When you are
done looking, burn it to death.

Shedinja is the first to use a rather annoying ability in this battle. It uses
an ability called Wonder Guard, which prevents it from being hurt by any moves
that aren't super-effective against it. This leaves five out of seventeen. You
are in luck, though. Shedinja will never have more than one HP, and moves such
as Sandstorm and Hail will still hurt it. Moves like Toxic and Will-O-Wisp and
others in the same boat all work as well. There are many different maneuvers I
can suggest here, but if you're here with a Pokemon good against Bug-types, as
you should be, you can off this thing easily regardless of your strategy. It's
not all that strong.

You'll never see a male Vespiquen. Period. The only way it can evolve from its
first form, Combee, is if it's female. Weird, but true. It has more Defense in
it than anything else, but use a Rock-type anyway, since it's doubly weak to a
Rock Pokemon. Attack and Defend Order are unique to Vespiquen. The former is a
90 BP Bug-type attack with a high critical hit ratio, while the latter ups its
defense stats with each use. Attack Order gets STAB as well. You know what its
other two moves are for. It still won't take long to beat it. Keep in mind its
ability, Pressure, which doubles your PP usage.

Yanmega is the gen 4 evolution of Yanma. It has high Speed and awesome Special
Attack, and all three of its attacks draw off of it. Detect is the same as the
move Protect, buying it one extra turn and wasting your own. Your first choice
should be Rock-type, like with Vespiquen, but Fire works well too. Bug Buzz is
strong and may lower your Special Defense by one stage when used, and you have
seen the other attacks by now. Knock it out of the sky.

Heracross has massive Attack and three moves that draw from it. It has the two
moves Megahorn and Close Combat for massive power with STAB, and Stone Edge to
contend with Flying-types you should be using. If it survives a Flying attack,
Counter will destroy you. It shouldn't, though, so go ahead and use Aerial Ace
or Fly or whatever attack you have to KO it easily.

Pinsir remains my favorite Bug-type Pokemon in the series. It has high Attack,
solid Defense, and is fully capable of tearing apart full six-Pokemon teams if
used properly. However, its weak Special stats are its downfall. If you are at
a lower level than Pinsir, Guillotine may OHKO you. Rock Tomb lowers Speed. It
has its weaknesses covered with Earthquake and Rock Tomb, but it falls far too
easily to Fire Pokemon for it to really matter. Flamethrower it.

***
To get a rematch with Whitney, look for her in the Goldenrod Department Store,
between noon and four on Saturdays. She's on the sixth floor.
***

Oh Christ, this battle was annoying. So much frustration.

She leads with Girafarig. It's part-Normal, part-Psychic, which means that not
only are Fighting-types out of the question, Ghosts are absolutely useless, if
only because Shadow Ball pulvarizes them. Your best bet is a Dark-type, but it
will start using Calm Mind a lot then, and then try to use Baton Pass and give
all of its Calm Minds to whoever it switches out to. Do NOT let this happen. A
lot of Whitney's Pokemon have Special Attacks. Put the palindrome Pokemon down
before it can get too strong.

Lickilicky is stupidly weird, but other than that isn't very tough. The second
form of Lickitung, it doesn't have high stats in anything except for HP, and I
don't think that is too high, either. It has all of the elemental TMs that are
used religiously, and Wring Out, a move that gets weaker with the Pokemon that
uses it. Most Pokemon can take this one out without too much trouble.

I'm pretty sure this Clefable isn't the same Clefairy you faced before, but it
might be. It'll start with Calm Mind and then start using one of the elemental
moves, all with 120 BP, depending on what you're using against it. Magic Guard
prevents you from hitting it with something that isn't a direct attack against
it. Leech Seed and Curse, for example, cannot be used. This means little since
Pokemon like Machamp and Hitmonlee won't try to anyway. Try to take it down as
soon as possible, as too much Calm Mind is a bad thing.

If you can't take it down quickly, you're going to hate Bibarel. It's an oddly
mixed Pokemon of Normal- and Water-type, with some great coverage attacks. Its
ability, Simple, doubles all stat increases, and it has Double Team. You might
figure it out from there. Charge Beam also has a chance of increasing its Spe-
cial Attack, which means two stages instead of one with Simple. Surf, Ice Beam
and Charge Beam are all Special attacks, so finish it off quickly. Mach Punch,
Close Combat and Thunderbolt are all good moves to use here. Honestly, Bibarel
is a pretty weak Pokemon in general anyway, so you should not have any trouble
in taking it out.

Delcatty is annoying. It will always lead with Fake Out, at least for me. What
it also does a lot is Assist, which lets it use any team member move at random
no matter what the move is. Its ability, Normalize, will make all of its moves
Normal-type moves, including Assist moves, and give them STAB to boot. This'll
either save or doom you, depending on what it uses. Like Girafarig, it may try
a Baton Pass/Calm Mind combination. Don't let it do so: Miltank is plenty hard
to beat without additional help. A Fighting-type will put Delcatty out quickly
and efficiently, especially since it doesn't have Cute Charm, thank god.

Miltank brings up the rear, which is a coincidence, since it is a real pain in
the rear. Aside from Attract (rage), her moveset is completely different. Body
Slam, which gets STAB, may paralyze you, so have Full Heals on hand. Paralyzed
and Attracted is an awful combination. It will use Rest if it's low on health.
It has a Lum Berry, so it will wake up immediately after it uses Rest, and if,
by some unlucky chance, it uses it again, it has Sleep Talk to attack while it
is sleeping. Overall I found it easier than last time, but Miltank is still an
incredibly annoying Pokemon to fight, so bring in something that is strong and
resilient against it.

***
To get Morty's phone number, look for him in front of the Bell Tower on Monday
during the day.
***

Apparently, Morty liked his old Gengar so much that he chose to use two in his
rematch with you. They're both his staple Pokemon, and are the same in all but
movesets. He also has four other awesome Ghost Pokemon on his team to make his
six Pokemon team complete. They're not all special, but you'll see during this
battle anyway.

He leads with Drifblim, a Ghost/Flying Pokemon. It has a s***load of HP and it
uses Substitute recklessly to prove it, which takes a quarter of its total HP,
depletes it and creates a decoy with it. You'll have to KO the decoy before it
will reappear, but it can still attack you while the decoy is there. It is not
hard to take out the decoy, though. Its main strategy is to get its HP down so
it will eat its Sitrus Berry, and then activate its ability, Unburden, which I
believe doubles its Speed stat after its held item is used. It will then use a
move called Destiny Bond, which will take you down with it if you finish it in
the same turn you KO it, or if you go first in the next turn and KO it. It may
also use Shadow Ball and Thunderbolt for coverage. A Dark-type is the best bet
here, since you now have access to them, unlike last time.

Dusknoir, the gen 4 third form of the gen 3 Duskulll, has very little HP going
for it but a ton of Defense. It has fairly good Attack as well, and Payback as
its only attacking move to run off Attack. Pain Split will equal out both your
HP stats to match each other, even if one of you has to lose HP for it to work
out. This is sometimes a blessing, but usually a curse. Will-o-Wisp burns you,
and it has Substitute as well, which is strange, but may turn things around in
a pinch for it. It doesn't have much to hurt you with except Pain Split, so it
shouldn't take too much to take Dusknoir down.

Sableye has no weaknesses to exploit, unless you have Foresight or a move like
Foresight. Fortunately, all of its stats suck, meaning that Sucker Punch won't
hurt your Ghosts, Brick Break won't hurt your Dark-types, and Ice Punch, well,
just won't do much. Fake Out is annoying as ever, but other than that, Sableye
will never attack first thanks to its ability. Take it out with anything.

Mismagius is the DPPt evolved form of Misdreavus, which for some reason wasn't
on Morty's original lineup. Its only attacking move sucks, but it doesn't need
a good one to make use of its strategy. It will first use Mean Look to ensnare
you in battle, and then use Perish Song to end both of you in three turns. The
idea sounds suicidal, but Mismagius can still switch out on the last turn. You
have definitely seen Confuse Ray before, which is there to make it even harder
to fight the strategy. If you're using a Dark-type, it will work wonders here.
Take it down quickly so you don't lose a Pokemon for a stupid reason.

His two Gengars look tough, but aren't too bad. One of them has the exact same
moveset as Drifblim, so take it down quickly the way you did him. Watch out in
case it uses Destiny Bond, as unlike Drifblim, Gengar is fast without using an
ability. The other Gengar has Focus Blast to decimate your Dark-types, but the
move is pretty inaccurate, so you may get lucky. Hypnosis and Confuse Ray will
serve the usual purposes, and will make it that much easier for Gengar to pull
off a Focus Blast. Any Psychic can take down both Gengars if they're faster (I
suggest Alakazam, obviously), but if not, bring out your Dark-type and hope it
will pay off.

***
To get Chuck's phone number, talk to his wife in front of his gym.
***

Chuck has gotten his act together and produced a team of six powerful Fighting
Pokemon. Unfortunately for him, by this point in the game you should have high
enough levels to not have problems on the level of Morty and Whitney.

Medicham starts things off. Psycho Cut, a physical Psychic attack, works a bit
like Slash and can get critical hits often. The bastard has Attract, so choose
a male Pokemon for this battle. Hi Jump Kick is powerful as is Thunderpunch, a
move there for Flying-types, but you shouldn't have too many problems here. It
does have the ability Pure Power, however, which increases its Attack stat.

His Hitmonchan is his lowest leveled Pokemon and has some terrible moves. Mach
Punch is the Fighting-type Quick Attack, Swagger/Double Team is obvious, and I
know you remember Focus Punch: hit it first, and Focus Punch is worthless. You
should note that like Bruno's Hitmonchan, Chuck's gets a boost on all punching
moves, so Focus Punch will hit brutally hard if it does get in.

Breloom is an interesting Grass/Fighting Pokemon, meaning it has the same huge
weakness that Heracross has, and just like Heracross, Breloom seems to think a
simple Stone Edge covers this weakness. It also has the item called Toxic Orb,
which poisons it after the first turn is completed. You might be thinking, "Is
this thing an idiot, or what?" but wait, there's more: he GAINS HP, as opposed
to losing it, from the poison thanks to his ability, Poison Heal. Just use the
same bird you used on Heracross to avoid that minor setback altogether.

Chuck's Hitmonlee more or less mirrors Bruno's, so take it out the same way as
you did his. Bulk Up raises both Attack and Defense by one stage.

This Primeape is different from the last Primeape you saw Chuck use. It has an
ability called Anger Point, which maximizes its Attack stat if you get a solid
critical hit. If this happens, nothing you use will be safe if its speed beats
yours. It covers its weaknesses with Thunderpunch and Payback, but Primeape is
just not good enough to back up its strategy unless it uses Anger Point. Tread
carefully, that's all. Remember that Close Combat weakens it.

This time around, Poliwrath is marginally better. Waterfall is a stronger move
on Poliwrath than Surf, and you know why it has Substitute. It still has Focus
Punch and now also has *ugh* Double Team; I'm not sure why all the Pokemon you
battle in this game need that damn move, but Poliwrath has it, so dismantle it
with Aerial Ace or Shock Wave. If you're using Zapdos, I salute you, you jerk.

***
To get Jasmine's phone number, talk to her in the diner in Olivine city beside
the Pokemon Center. She is there every day from one to two in the afternoon.
***

She is a lot harder this time. Oddly enough, her strongest and her weakest are
twelve levels apart, and most of her Pokemon are closer to her weakest. Still,
she doesn't have the problems with evolution that she had before, since all of
her Pokemon are fully evolved. Be on guard.

She leads with Metagross, a Steel/Psychic Pokemon. It's a gen 3 powerhouse, on
the line with Dragonite and Tyranitar. Meteor Mash and Bullet Punch both get a
nice STAB increase, and the former can wreck Pokemon with its high power. Your
Flying-types and Levitating Pokemon will be brought down with Gravity, and you
will be susceptible to Ground-type moves as a result; however, this one hasn't
any Ground-type moves. Its only weaknesses are Fire- and Ground-types, but she
will use Explosion if its HP starts going down, and will dismantle pretty much
anything that isn't a Ghost.

Bronzong is a gen 4 Pokemon, and the same type as Metagross. Plain and simple,
it's a tank. Like Metagross, it only has two weaknesses, but it has Heatproof,
which will weaken Fire-type attacks. Gyro Ball is a Steel-type move that deals
more damage if the user is slower, so the slow Bronzong will inflict some real
damage with it. It also has the Hypnosis/Dream Eater combination, which should
not be a problem anyway. Stick with a Ground-type here.

Skarmory, on the other hand, is immune to Ground-types thanks to being a part-
Flying Pokemon as well. Steel Wing and Air Slash both get STAB, but the latter
shouldn't do any real damage since Skarmory's Special Attack, well, sucks. Its
Spikes will damage your Pokemon upon entering the battle, and I assume that it
has Night Slash just 'cause. Use an Electric-type here, as it can withstand an
attack from both its STABed moves and probably Night Slash as well.

Empoleon is the fully evolved form of the Water starter Pokemon in DPPt, so if
you haven't played any of the three, you likely haven't seen it before. It has
no Steel-type moves here, but it does have Hydro Pump and Blizzard to deal out
some serious damage. Aqua Jet is yet another Quick Attack, and if Spikes is on
the field right now, Roar will piss you off by forcing you to take damage, and
switching your Pokemon out at the same time. I recommend an Electric-type here
as well.

She ditched one of her Magnemites from before and fully evolved the other, and
it's now a beast. Metal Sound lowers your Special Defense by two stages, which
is bad since Magnezone has incredible Special Attack to begin with, and it has
Lock-On to ensure that Zap Cannon doesn't miss next turn. Zap Cannon paralyzes
you no matter what if it hits. Thankfully, it still hasn't found a way to deal
with its huge weakness to Ground-types, so exploit that with a smile. Be very,
very happy that it doesn't have Magnet Rise.

Finally, her Steelix. It has insane Defense, so leave your physical attackers,
including Fighting and Ground, out of this. You may regret it a little because
of Stone Edge, but it's too inaccurate to matter when you're charring it with,
say, Flamethrower or Heat Wave. It also uses a Stealth Rock/Roar combo, if its
two main attacks can't do much. Bring it down with a Fire-type, or soak it out
with a surfing Pokemon.

***
To get Pryce's phone number, look for him on the western side of Lake of Rage.
He is there every morning from seven until ten.
***

Almost all of his Pokemon can use Blizzard, which you'll recall from your last
battle with Pryce and a few battles since. The inaccuracy factor is eliminated
by his leading Pokemon's ability, Snow Warning, which creates a hailstorm upon
entering battle. The hailstorm will last the entire battle, unless you have an
attack like Sunny Day or Rain Dance to change the weather. If not, you can not
only expect Blizzard to hit with perfect accuracy, but also expect some of his
Pokemon to gain other advantages with their abilities, on top of receiving the
damage from the hail every turn. On to the in-depth stuff.

Abomasnow itself isn't all that tough. It knows three moves that deal out some
insane damage, and the Ice-type Quick Attack called Ice Shard. Flamethrower is
perfect here, if you're level 40 or more and faster than Abomasnow. You should
be far beyond that anyway, considering that if you're following my guide right
to the letter, you've already faced Red.

Glalie and Froslass are the gen 3 and gen 4 evolutions of Snorunt, another gen
3 Pokemon. Both of them use Blizzard and *rage* Attract. Glalie has Payback, a
move you've seen a few times before, and Froslass has Ice Shard. Torment won't
let you use the same move twice in a row. [insert rant about Confuse Ray here]
Neither are all that powerful, and Froslass has a lot more weaknesses than its
counterpart due to being part-Ghost as well.

Walrein, first seen in gen 3, is a lot like Dewgong. It too has Blizzard. It's
going to use Body Slam a lot, though. If you took out the hailstorm earlier, I
am sad to say it can make another one with Hail. It has a lot of HP, but it is
still relatively easy to take down, and will probably fall to whatever you had
when you faced Pryce's Dewgong the first time.

Speaking of Dewgong, it was a lot tougher last time. If you are even one level
higher than it, Sheer Cold will do nothing. If not, it may OHKO you. It has an
awful move called Dive, which works like Dig for Water-types. You've seen this
Rest/Sleep Talk combo before. It also has a Lum Berry. Whatever you used on it
last time will work again here.

His Mamoswine is the gen 4 evolution of Piloswine and is a lot stronger, as it
probably should be. It takes advantage of its high Attack stat with Avalanche,
a physical Ice-type attack that works like Revenge and Payback, plus the usual
Earthquake and Stone Edge. [insert rant about Double Team here] Don't use your
Fire Pokemon here. Water- and Fighting-types are your best choices here. Also,
whatever you used last time will work again here.

***
NOTE: This battle can only take place after battling Lance and Clair alongside
your rival in Dragon's Den. Silver only appears there after you beat him at Mt
Moon in Kanto. Both battles are covered in subsequent sections of this guide.
***
To get a rematch with Clair, look for her in Dragon's Den. She is there on all
mornings from six until ten.
***

She's not as hard as last time. She's now mirroring Lance in many ways, but it
doesn't increase her difficulty to his level. Nothing here you haven't seen at
some point before, anyway.

Gyarados again goes first for her team, and it's more or less the same as last
time. It's not even as good as Blue's Gyarados. It does have a Wacan Berry, an
awesome berry that cuts Electric-type attacks in half if they can land a super
effective hit. Don't be surprised if it somehow survives the first Thunderbolt
despite the enormous gaping weakness. It shouldn't, though.

Her Dragonair, one of the two from before, is not much tougher, and is only 14
levels higher than last time. It does use Dragon Rush, which is awesome on the
Dratini family; the rest is nothing new. An Ice-type works best here, or if it
appeals to you, use your own Dragon-type if you have one.

Her Aerodactyl and Charizard are pretty much the same as Lance's. Take both of
them out as you would his. I'm pretty sure her Aerodactyl is actually Lance's,
too, as he no longer uses one. Her Charizard has the same moveset as Lance's.

Her Kingdra is no longer her staple Pokemon, but is still as resilient as ever
if not as hard to beat. She swapped Hyper Beam, Dragon Pulse, and Smokescreen,
replacing them with Ice Beam, Dragonbreath, and Yawn. Ice Beam is a good move;
the rest are meh. Take it down the same way you did last time; there's no real
set way to win here, as Dragon-types don't do too well against Kingdra, and it
is Kingdra's only weakness. By the way, Dragonbreath may paralyze you.

Her new staple Pokemon is Dragonite, one of her two Dragonairs from before; it
pretty much mirrors one of Lance's, except for having weaker moves. Almost any
Ice-type attack will crush it, so if you have a Lapras or Piloswine, bring it,
and watch it demolish. If not, any Water Pokemon with Ice Beam can win as well
if it can KO Dragonite before it uses Thunder.

That's it for Johto.

| 8: ELITE FOUR GUIDE - SECOND WAVE | EFR00 |
=============================================

Just like the 16 gym leaders (I'll cover Kanto in the next section), the Elite
Four have beefed up their teams as well and are now a lot tougher than before,
since they, too, are using gen 3 and 4 Pokemon on their teams, and movesets to
suit them. Do not fool around with this group.

Like before, I'm listing my Pokemon and movesets now, so I don't have to do so
five separate times.

I'll start off by saying that the three Pokemon from his original team that he
did keep - Jynx, Slowbro and Xatu - are more or less the same as last time, so
you can take them out pretty much the same way. That's as much detail for them
as I'm willing to go into, since their movesets are pretty similar to before.

He leads with a Bronzong, which you'll remember from when you faced Jasmine in
your rematch with her. As always, it's a bastard and a half with its iron-hard
defenses - pun intended - and immunity to almost everything. You've seen these
moves before and should have an adequate strategy to deal with it. In case you
don't, 'quake its ass into the ground.

Grumpig is a Pokemon introduced in gen 3, and has some interesting moves. This
may not be new to you, but Power Gem is a special Rock-type attack, and Signal
Beam is a special Bug-type attack, covering its weaknesses. Sit your Dark-type
out and throw in your Ghost-type, and watch Grumpig fall to a Shadow Ball. Oh,
I love my poetry.

Gardevoir is also gen 3, and is the signature Psychic Pokemon of the RSE games
in my opinion. It has three special stat attacks and Calm Mind to power up all
of them. In case you haven't seen it yet, Charge Beam is an Electric-type move
that might also raise its Special Attack. All in all, more of the same. Will's
not that hard this time around.

This time around, Koga actually has a full team of Poison Pokemon. They're not
all that strong, though.

Skuntank of gen 4 starts the battle. Poison/Dark in type, its only weakness is
Ground. Be careful, though: if you whittle its HP down too much, it'll explode
to take you down as well. Its only poisonous move is Toxic, so have some items
ready to heal your status condition.

Toxicroak is also from gen 4. It has a huge f***ing weakness to Psychic-types.
Its ability, Dry Skin, will reduce its HP in sunlight or heal it in rain. Your
Water-type attacks will only heal it, while Fire-type attacks will deal better
damage to it. X-Scissor is there to deal with Psychics, the rest get STAB. You
know why it has Swagger. Hit it where it really hurts.

Muk will be downright frustrating. It has no offensive moves this time; it now
prefers to whittle your HP with combinations of Toxic and Swagger. Minimize is
the same as Double Team, and Screech will make you hurt yourself even more, if
you're still confused that is. If you have a Steel-type, use it here for Toxic
immunity. There's not much you can do about Swagger, unfortunately.

You may not have met Swalot before. It's a gen 3 Pokemon from Hoenn. It has an
excellent HP stat and average everything else. Amnesia will lessen your super-
effective Psychic attacks, and Pain Split you should recognize from your match
with Morty. The rest is old hat.

You've seen Venomoth a few times now, including in your last battle with Koga.
Silver Wind has 60 BP, but gets STAB and may raise all of its stats a bit. You
might recognize the Baton Pass/Double Team strategy, and trust me, you do not,
I repeat, do NOT want to face an evasive Crobat at level 64. If it switches to
Muk, you will likely destroy your DS out of sheer frustration. Also, note that
Venomoth still has Tinted Lens, so its attacks may still hit hard.

Crobat is back, and this time is a lot weaker move-wise, though it does use an
interesting Toxic/Mean Look combination, meaning you can either keep using all
your Full Heals, or take Crobat down quickly. Cross Poison is a powerful Slash
type Poison attack, and you know what Fly is. An Electric-type will work quite
well here, if you're tired of using your Psychic-type.

He now has two staple Pokemon, and switched out his Onix for another Fighting-
type Pokemon. Big deal. He's still as easy as he was before. Like in the fight
with Brock, there's only so much detail I can give you: you've seen almost all
of these moves and Pokemon before. Machamp and the Hitmons all go down the way
they did last time. They have slightly better moves, but are otherwise more of
the same. Note that Dynamicpunch will never miss because of No Guard.

Hariyama has a ton of HP and a lot of Attack, but its moves are pretty weak in
power. I don't know why Bruno bothered going to a move tutor to teach Hariyama
a move like Low Kick when it can learn so many better Fighting-type attacks; I
can't assume, but it's easier for you either way. Bulk Up raises both Attack &
Defense by one stage each.

There is no other word to describe Lucario except awesome. It's one of, if not
the, best Fighting-types in the series. It has an enormous movepool and rather
high offenses to go with it, but is rather low on the defensive scale. You can
use a Ground-type here if you want, or your own Fighting-type as well. Keep in
mind that Close Combat is insanely powerful on Lucario.

---
Additional Note: I've received word that Lucario has used moves outside of the
four I have listed. There's not much I can say about that, as I have confirmed
the movesets with Ditto, Psypoke, and Bulbapedia, so it might be a glitch or a
problem otherwise. This is just to let everyone know that I have both seen and
acknowledged the issue.

She is just as tough as she was before, perhaps even tougher. Not only has she
rid herself of Gengar and Vileplume and completed her team of Dark Pokemon for
the first time in ten years, she's also evolved one of her originals. You need
some good Pokemon for this battle, and remember, this isn't even the strongest
trainer of the five.

Somewhere along the line, she got a Sneasel and evolved it into a Weavile. Its
typing is awful, but it gets STAB for most of its moves, and it's very goddamn
fast. Fighting-types are obviously your best bet, but Fire-types work well, in
case you don't have a Fighting-type. Remember that Pressure doubles the amount
of PP you use with one attack, so try to avoid low-PP moves here.

Spiritomb also has Pressure, on top of having no weaknesses like Sableye. Good
thing is that Spiritomb isn't very powerful, but it doesn't need to be to make
good use of Curse and Pain Split. Sucker Punch will do some decent damage. I'm
pretending that Confuse Ray doesn't exist. Whatever you used against Sableye I
suggest here as well.

Absol is powerful. Very powerful. It uses Detect like most Pokemon use Protect
- that is, too goddamn often - and has Night Slash and Psycho Cut to deal some
insane damage if they get critical hits thanks to its ability, Super Luck. You
know what Perish Song is for. It's pure Dark, so a Fighting-type that won't go
down to Psycho Cut in one hit is your best choice. Perhaps Lucario, if you can
get one.

You'll find Houndoom to be the same as last time. Take it down the same way.

Her Honchkrow evolved from her Murkrow; you've seen one before courtesy of the
first gym leader, Falkner. It has massive Attack but low speed. It doesn't use
much defense, either. That being said, you might find Drill Peck will decimate
you if you can't repel it, so bring out a Steel-type to repel it and its other
attack. If you have Steelix, double benefit since Thunder Wave won't bother it
at all.

Umbreon is now her staple Pokemon and is a lot tougher than before. It has low
Attack but really high Defense, and doesn't need to be strong to make use of -
wait for it - Confuse Ray. It'll use Curse a lot to lower its Speed, but bring
up its Attack and Defense, and then go crazy with Payback. You can whittle its
HP down little by little to avoid this, or just use a really, really Fighting-
type attack and hope it KOs Umbreon in one go. Actually, if you're using it, I
don't see Payback hurting you much anyway.

He's gained the most levels out of all the rematches you'll face in this game,
and is now second only to Red if you don't count yourself. He put away the two
Dragonites that aren't his main one and I presume gave his Aerodactyl to Clair
in order to bring in three new Dragons, one of which is not a Flying-type. The
specialty section is now Dragon, not Flying. All six of his Pokemon are tough,
even more so if you're underleveled. Be ready.

Salamence starts the battle. It has high Speed and insane offenses. This means
that all three of its attacks will hit very hard. It will Rest when low on HP,
but if you're using an Ice Pokemon, you can probably KO it quickly anyway. You
should have some Full Restores/Hyper Potions ready anyway. If it does use Rest
through some stupid luck, it will wake up immediately because of its Lum Berry
that you've seen a few times before.

I've done enough descriptions of Gyarados and Charizard. I'm a bit sick of all
the big faces having them. You know what to do. Also, outside of switching the
move Outrage for Draco Meteor - a stupid move, in my opinion - he hasn't fixed
Dragonite up much. Take it out the same way.

Garchomp was the staple Pokemon of the gen 4 Champion's team. It has very high
Attack and Speed, and Swords Dance supes up that Attack even further. Since it
has Outrage, it's been bred. Avoid all of this by freezing it to death, as you
should be doing. Despite not being part-Flying like the rest of the team, Ice-
types still deal four-times damage to it.

Altaria comes from gen 3. It has decent stats, and it isn't using anything you
haven't seen before. If you managed to beat Salamence and Garchomp, Altaria is
a joke in comparison. Take it out before it Double Teams too many times.

And that's that. You're Champion again.

***
To get Lt. Surge's phone number, look for him next to the Power Plant any day,
from nine until eleven in the morning. You can only find him here after you've
captured Zapdos. Note: You MUST capture Zapdos. If you knocked it out, you can
find it here again after beating the Elite Four again.
***

Like Jasmine, Surge apparently travelled to Sinnoh since you last faced him. I
doubt you'll find this battle any harder, though. To start, his Raichu now has
the move Grass Knot, which works like Low Kick. It has Thunderbolt now as well
for more electric power. Other than that, it's the same mouse as before. Surge
barely changed his one remaining Electrode at all, except for beefing it up in
terms of Explosion and Thunderbolt. Both should fall very easily.

Manectric is a Hoenn-native Pokemon with some decent stats going for it. Moves
like Natural Gift are interesting, but nothing special. In this case, it holds
a Pinap Berry, so Natural Gift will be a Grass-type attack. It should not make
much difference, though. It also somehow has Overheat if you decided to negate
Discharge and Natural Gift with Steelix. It's smart, but ultimately not strong
enough to back itself up as long as you're faster.

You saw Magnezone when you faced Jasmine, and this one is the smartest one you
have seen thus far in that it uses Magnet Rise, a move that changes an ability
to Levitate for five turns. This means that its one major weakness won't work.
Kudos, but that's a bit annoying for you. Luckily, Magnezone also had horrible
match-ups against Fire-types, with only Thunderbolt to use on them. However, I
believe I mentioned that Magnezone has incredible Special Attack, so finish it
off quickly.

Pachirisu is from Sinnoh and has rather low stats, aside from its defenses, if
70 and 90 base stats are anything to be concerned about. Its Defense is lower,
so aim for that. Super Fang cuts your current amount of HP in half. Sweet Kiss
is basically the same as Supersonic. It shouldn't take more than one attack on
level with Earthquake or Earth Power.

Electivire is the gen 4 evolution of Electabuzz and has awesome offensive stat
power. It has four great moves to attack with, too. Ice Punch, Earthquake, and
Cross Chop are there for any and all Rock-, Ground-, and Steel-type Pokemon in
whichever combination they're in. Still, it is no longer the good lieutenant's
staple Pokemon, and as such is not his highest level Pokemon, so you shouldn't
have too many problems.

***
To get Sabrina's phone number, talk to her at Olivine Harbor on Friday. She is
there all day.
***

A single Houndoom with Shadow Ball could likely decimate this team. Since most
of you likely won't have one (hell, I didn't), I'll do the usual descriptions,
except for her main three Pokemon. They're mostly unchanged from the last time
you faced them, and you've seen all of those moves before anyway. They've only
gained a few levels each.

Jynx, which you've seen before on Will's team, has Focus Blast to use for your
Dark-types. If you took my advice and used a Houndoom, this won't matter since
you can destroy Jynx in two or three different ways anyway. It'll use the ever
present Perish Song if it doesn't like its odds, so be ready for that, too. If
not, it's pretty much the same as Will's Jynx otherwise.

Wobbuffet is an annoying prick. It cannot attack you directly, instead relying
on Mirror Coat and Counter to deal back double damage from any and all special
and physical damage respectively. Its ability keeps you from switcing Pokemon,
and it has a boatload of HP. Encore will force you to use the same move again,
usually for four or five turns, in order to know whether to use Mirror Coat or
Counter. Destiny Bond is surprisingly bad on Wobbuffet, since it won't use its
attack first and you can just not KO it on the follow-up turn if it's used. It
is quite literally every staller's dream. You may lose a Pokemon or two here.

Gallade is the gen 4 evolution of Kirlia, just as Gardevoir was the gen 3 one.
It's pretty much a better Medicham and has an excellent movepool, which it has
taken full advantage of here. Its Attack stat is enormous, and all four of its
moves draw from it. Use a Ghost-type if you can avoid Night Slash. If not, use
a Flying-type if you can avoid Stone Edge. The latter is less of a problem, as
it's less accurate and has less PP.

***
To get Janine's phone number, talk to her in front of the entrance building to
Victory Road on any afternoon from four to six. She will stop giving out phone
numbers after six, so be there on time.
***

She's just as easy as she was before, only this time you can't just waltz over
with a Psychic-type Pokemon and expect to win instantly. This is thanks to her
new Drapion, which is a Dark-type Pokemon as well. Still, you should have some
Ground-type move at your disposal, so it shouldn't be an issue.

Crobat has had a major revamp in moveset, only retaining Confuse Ray since the
last time you faced it. Heat Wave, I think, is there for Ice-types, but I have
to wonder why she thought Ice-types would be one's first choice. Anyway, Cross
Poison is an awesome Poison-type move, and you've seen the rest before.

In case you haven't faced Koga's new team yet, Toxicroak is also part-Fighting
on top of being part-Poison, meaning Psychic-types will obliterate it before I
finish typing this sentence.

You've likely never seen Drapion unless you've played DPPt. It does not have a
weakness except for Ground. Swords Dance will beef up its already high Attack.
Cross Poison and Crunch run off Attack, by the way. If you're using a Golem as
I was, it has no chance. It has the same ability as Clair's Kingdra.

Weezing, Ariados, and Venomoth are actually weaker this time around. Weezing's
now using Thunderbolt over Double Hit, and still falls as easily to Psychic or
whatever you're using that it isn't either strong against or immune to. Bounce
is a Flying-type move, odd for Ariados, but it will probably use Toxic/Swagger
first anyway. Venomoth now has Bug Buzz and Sleep Powder; Bug Buzz is stronger
than Signal Beam, but still nothing special on Venomoth. All three will tumble
as easily as last time.

***
To get Erika's phone number, talk to her in Celadon City, next to the fountain
in front of the Department Store, on weekend afternoons from three until five.
***

She's gained two more Pokemon, and evolved one of her original four. Otherwise
she's pretty much the same as last time.

She now leads with Shiftry, a Grass/Dark typing from gen 3. It has some decent
stats all around aside from Defense. For the life of me I can't figure out why
she and everyone else in this game think Sucker Punch is useful, but Shiftry's
gets STAB, as does its Leaf Storm. It will use Explosion when it feels it will
faint soon, and if it used Sunny Day first, its Speed will likely outmatch the
speed of any Pokemon you're using, unless you're using Crobat or something. It
isn't all that strong, and it has a huge weakness to the Bug-type. Good luck.

Jumpluff and Bellossom are pretty much the same as before. Hell, Bellossom has
mostly the same moves as last time, and hasn't gained a single level. However,
Jumpluff now has Memento, which will KO Jumpluff and cut your offensive stats,
both of them, by two stages. Take them out the same way you did last time. You
might not beat the suicidal Jumpluff to the punch if it's sunny, though.

If you played Platinum, you've definitely seen a few Roserades before now. The
amount of usage this thing has is incredible. It has an enormous movepool, and
can even learn Psychic-type moves. It gets STAB on Energy Ball and Sludge Bomb
and has Weather Ball, which changes type depending on the weather, and will be
a Normal-type attack otherwise. Roserade has a high Special Attack stat, and I
myself have used it many times in the other gen 4 games. It has the same piles
of weaknesses that Victreebel does, though.

Speaking of Victreebel, it's changed a fair bit since the last battle, but its
level is still the same as before. Erika is really lazy. It now has Leaf Blade
and Sludge Bomb; Leaf Blade is the Grass-type Slash, so it gets critical hits,
and lots of them. Natural Gift changes depending on the berry, as you remember
from your rematch with Surge, and is Fighting-type for Victreebel. Assuming it
is there for Ice-types, don't use them. Burn it like you should be doing.

Her new best Pokemon is Tangrowth, the gen 4 evolution of Tangela. It has high
offensive stats, super-high Defense, and crappy everything else. It uses moves
like Rock Slide and Earthquake, which is odd to see on a pure Grass-type, so I
won't suggest a Fire-type unless it's a much higher level than 60. Most of its
weaknesses are fully covered, so you might want to think outside the box here.
Enjoy.

To get Misty's phone number, talk to her any afternoon from four up until six.
She will be at Cerulean Cape, by Bill's grandfather's house. You have to clear
the Suicune sidequest first, though, and have either captured or KO'd it.
***

This battle is pretty similar to last time, with some minor changes, mainly in
lineup. She ditched her Golduck and replaced it with three Pokemon, each taken
from a different generation. She also has two staple Pokemon now.

Starmie is now her first Pokemon used, and it has incredible coverage now. Its
Surf and Psychic both get STAB, and she gets additional coverage with Ice Beam
and, surprisingly here, Thunderbolt. She at least doesn't have anything to use
against Electric-types, so stick with those, but remember that Starmie doesn't
lack in the Special Attack department, so whatever you're hit with might still
hit hard. It's also fast. Very, very fast.

If you've seen Chinchou at all in your game so far - it first arrived in Gold/
Silver - this is its evolution. Its typing means it no longer has an Electric-
type weakness, and you obviously can't use Ground-types, so use whatever Grass
Pokemon you have here. Watch out for Thunder Wave.

Floatzel is a gen 4 Pokemon, from DPPt. It was the staple Pokemon of the Water
Gym in those games. It is one of the faster Water-types and has decent Attack,
which it draws off with Waterfall and Ice Fang. It will also use a combination
of Agility and Baton Pass to make whichever Pokemon it switches with that much
faster, so take it down before it can do so.

Quagsire and Lapras are more or less the same as last time. Take them down the
same way.

She finishes with Milotic, everyone's favorite Water-type Pokemon from the RSE
games that is a pain in the goddamn ass to obtain. It is well worth the hassle
in the end, though, as it's one of the better Water-types out there. It has an
amazing Special Defense stat, which is why I do not recommend Electric-type or
Grass-type Pokemon for this one, unless they're physical hitters. It's lacking
in Defense, so aim for that. Try not to paralyze or poison it, though: it will
activate Marvel Scale, which sharply increases Defense, if it suffers a status
condition. Moves like Seed Bomb were made to be used against this one.

He ditched his useless Rhyhorn and brought in some actually decent Rock-types.
Big deal. He's still terrible. Only difference now is not all of his main team
has a double weakness.

He evolved Graveler into Golem, the first time we've seen one on Brock's team.
Onix is back as well. Both go down the same way they did last time. Same goes,
for the most part, for Kabutops and Omastar. Nothing more to say on them.

Relicanth is the same typing as the two fossils of Kanto in that it has a huge
gaping weakness to Grass-types. It is fairly powerful, using attacks like Head
Smash, which has 150 BP and recoil damage, and Aqua Tail. It still falls waaay
too easily for you to care, though.

Rampardos, if used correctly, ruins your plans to sweep the gym with one Grass
Pokemon. Sure, it has some low stats, but its base Attack stat is 165, outdone
only by Deoxys's Attack form. Don't be surprised if, supposing it does land an
Avalanche on your Grass- or Ground-type, your Pokemon faints. That being said,
its defenses aren't that strong, so take it out the way you would take out any
Rock-type.

To get Blaine's phone number, talk to him anytime on Tuesday. He is found over
on Cinnibar Island.
***

Not much has changed from last time. He now has six Fire-type Pokemon, but the
ones he brought in are more of the same, really.

Torkoal should be familiar to you if you've played RSE. It has insane defenses
and meh everything else, especially Speed. Body Slam may get a bit annoying if
it paralyzes you, and Yawn will eventually put you to sleep. A Water-type will
get around its high Defense.

Houndoom is more or less the same as Karen's Houndoom, just lower leveled. You
shouldn't have too many issues against it. Camerupt is from RSE as well and is
a Fire/Ground typing, which means it's still majorly weak to Water attacks. It
has the ability Solid Rock, which will reduce super-effective damage by 1/4. I
doubt that will change much.

Magcargo, assuming you decide to challenge yourself a little, can use Curse to
lower its Speed and power up its Attack and Defense, and then use Gyro Ball, a
move that does more damage if you're slower. I can't think of anything you are
using that it would hit super-effectively, so whip out your Water Pokemon, and
soak it away. Rapidash remains unchanged other than one level and Megahorn for
whatever the hell it's for.

His new staple Pokemon is Magmortar, the evolved Magmar. It is incredibly hard
to beat even with the right typing if you're underleveled. It can actually use
Thunderbolt, so leave your Water-types out of this battle. Flamethrower gets a
nice juice of STAB and will hit ferociously hard. If Confuse Ray is a problem,
especially at this point, it's time to turn off your DS. Use a Ground-type for
this bout.

This battle is tough. Like the other Kanto leaders, Blue's levels have gone up
from last time, and he was on level with the round 2 gym leaders when we first
faced him, making him the best gym leader you'll face in this game by far. And
so he should be: he's the third strongest trainer after Red and, upon rematch,
Lance. He no longer has a Gyarados, having replaced it with Tyranitar, a Rock-
type version of Dragonite. This is the last rematch. Here we go.

Exeggutor once again leads the battle. It still knows Trick Room, that oddball
move that Blue gave you for beating him last time, and now has Explosion if it
decides it can't win. It falls to Bug-type Pokemon like nobody's business, but
if you want, Dark- and Fire-types work well here, too.

Arcanine is mostly the same as last time. Thunder Fang is for Water-types; you
should be aware of this anyway. Crunch is good coverage. Take it down the same
way you did last time.

Machamp is still pretty tough, but no longer has the coverage it had last time
you faced Blue. Fling depends entirely on its hold item; it is strongest here,
though, since Machamp's holding an Iron Ball. This will dish out 130 BP damage
to you, and it's a Dark-type move, so your Psychics may not be good here. Blue
kept Stone Edge for your Flying-types, though, so it's your call. Remember his
Machamp's ability, which means every attack you and he launch will have superb
one hundred percent accuracy, which includes Dynamicpunch. I don't have a god-
damn clue why Blue felt it necessary to give Machamp of all Pokemon Attract; I
hate that move so much. Fortunately, if you're using Male Pokemon, Attract has
nothing on you.

Rhyperior is the evolved form of Rhydon, and debuted in this gen. It's a fully
functioning wrecking machine that still has glaring weaknesses to Water-types,
Grass-types, and Fighting-types, though obviously moreso for the first two. It
has the same ability as Blaine's Camerupt to lessen super-effective damage. It
has the same moveset as last time, so you shouldn't have too much trouble here
anyway. I never liked this evolution anyway.

Tyranitar is similar to Rhyperior in offensive power. It has one huge weakness
to Fighting-types and a few other smaller weaknesses. Sand Stream will whip up
a sandstorm that will remain for the duration of the battle unless you can get
rid of it with your own weather-changing move. Luckily, Tyranitar is not using
moves that cover its real weaknesses here.

Pidgeot is still his staple Pokemon here, and is a respectable level 72, which
has to be the highest-leveled Pidgeot I have ever seen in-game. Return makes a
return here, no pun intended, and Steel Wing is there for Rock-types. It still
doesn't have much Attack stat to pull off a good Steel Wing, though. Blue gave
it Double Team for the rematch, and I'm sure it's because he loves us. Luckily
his Air Slash is still weak, too. Give yourself a big pat on the back once you
beat him. You've earned it after clearing all sixteen gym leaders at least two
times each. It was a long run.

He doesn't technically have a name yet, but since his canon name is Silver and
I like the name, that's what I'll be calling him in subsequent synopsises.

He only just stole his Pokemon, so he hasn't leveled it up at all. It's always
going to be at level 5 for this battle. It will also always be whatever type's
stronger against yours. You should have leveled up between cities, so this one
will not be that hard.

A little harder than last time, but nothing strenuous if you managed to defeat
Bugsy's team (and by that, I mean Scyther). His starter has now evolved and is
stronger than before, but you have every type available to beat them in routes
before Azalea: Electric for Croconaw, Rock for Quilava and Flying for Bayleef.
Zubat also goes down to Rock-types, and Gastly faints to more or less anything
you have at this point in the game. All in all, pretty easy.

He's gained a few levels for each Pokemon, and caught a Magnemite fresh from a
route beyond this town. The same strategies apply here as they did in the last
battle. Magnemite has a major weakness to Ground-types, so bring out something
like Geodude or its evolution (I had Graveler) to contend with it.

Silver has gotten his s*** together and put together a decent, but incomplete,
team. All of his Pokemon have evolved except for Magnemite and, if he has one,
Quilava.

Golbat and Haunter are both Poison-types in some shape or form, and this means
that you should be using Psychic-types against them. Be careful of Haunter and
its Shadow Ball, though. Magnemite remains unevolved for some reason. Sneasel,
which I believe was stolen from Cianwood City, is a Dark/Ice typing, so it has
no chance against Fighting-types. Fire also works against it and Magnemite.

If you chose Chikorita, he will still have Quilava; anyone else and his staple
Pokemon will be fully evolved. Feraligatr is strong offensively, so be careful
what you use against it. Electric and Grass yield the best results. Meganium's
annoyingly defensive, but has many weaknesses. Quilava is easily dispatched by
virtually any move you make.

If you have any trouble whatsoever with this battle, let it be a fair warning:
the Elite Four is much, much harder to beat than your rival is, even now. He's
evolved his Magnemite finally, and picked up a Kadabra somewhere down the line
to contend with you. Also, if you started with Chikorita, this marks the first
time you've seen his fully evolved Typhlosion.

Kadabra and Haunter are the big threats. Taking them down means this battle is
pretty much over. Feraligatr has four awesome offensive moves, though, and you
know how strong it is by now, but if you beat Kingdra, this should be nothing.
This is only a warm-up for the Elite Four, after all. You should be sporting a
lot of high levels by this point, at least in the mid-40s (you don't need top-
40s levels like I went for), anyway.

Not much to tell you this time. His team is almost completely evolved now, and
he uses both Gengar and Alakazam, which you know by now to be respectable-size
threats. Every Pokemon on his team has gained about ten levels on average, but
otherwise this is the same battle you fought in Victory Road.

I'm glad that his levels are better now than they were in gen 2, though. Lance
is only barely higher.

You've seen my listed levels before, at the beginning of the Elite Four, Round
2 section way up above. That was the first time I'd faced Silver again since I
fought him in Mt. Moon. Luckily, it was a Wednesday in my game.

His Sneasel and Magneton remain unevolved, and I believe that is because gen 2
didn't feature a rival with Pokemon beyond gen 2, and they wanted it to remain
that way. Who knows, since Magnezone is used by two gym leaders. His Golbat is
now evolved into Crobat, though, signifying his shift to the good side of this
land of Pokemon, or whatever. His levels on this team are exactly ten levels -
to the digit - than his final team's levels in gen 2. You've seen waaay higher
than this if you've been following my guide in order, though.

His starter, his Gengar, and his Alakazam have awesome moves on them; Gengar's
moveset is just excellent. Crobat is fast, but doesn't have a good moveset for
its power. You should be in the high 60s level-wise, though, if not higher, so
you shouldn't have too many problems taking Silver down, especially since none
of these Pokemon except his starter are even close to new to you.

This is your last battle with Silver. On the bright side, you can do this same
battle over and over again every Monday and Wednesday if you want. Silver will
be located in the Dragon's Den in Blackthorn on Tuesdays and Thursdays, too.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After beating your rival in Mt. Moon, you can meet with Silver in Dragon's Den
on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Surprisingly, his starter Pokemon will be with him,
out of its Pokeball. Moments later, Lance and Clair will appear, and challenge
you to a double battle: you two versus them. Considering that Silver has hoped
for a chance to battle Lance again since being thrashed by him in the Rockets'
hideout in Mahogany Town, even though it was clearly for the better, I'm quite
sure we'd be bad people to deny Silver his sweet, sweet revenge. Time to knock
Lance down a peg!

---
NOTE 1: This battle takes place before your rebattle with Clair.
---
NOTE 2: Murk is obviously me. I am referring to Silver's starter as Feraligatr
because that was his choice in my file. It obviously varies for everyone.
---
NOTE 3: EXP, Gender & Held Items are not listed for Silver's Pokemon here, the
reason being that you're fighting alongside him, not against him.
---

If you've played Pokemon Pearl, Diamond or Platinum before and reached the top
of Mt. Coronet, Spear Pillar, then you've faced a battle like this one before.
If you're very underleveled, you might have a difficult time facing Lance. His
levels tower over Clair's and Silver's, so my little speech in regards to your
rival was obviously a joke. Don't worry, though, your levels should be around,
or higher than, Lance's. Me, I just went nuts because I faced Red first.

Silver uses his first three Pokemon, all three now fully evolved, and is quite
capable of holding his own against Clair; it's Lance that'll throttle him. You
can win this battle easily with an Ice Pokemon or an Electric Pokemon with you
- or, if you're like me, both - but at least have an Ice Pokemon, because they
have always been Lance and Clair's downfalls. The difficulty here is only high
if your levels are not.

He's actually weaker than Falkner. His levels are more or less the same as the
levels the Rocket Grunts had. Your own levels should be in the mid-to-high 10s
by now, so anything you use will crush him, and probably easily.

Been a while since the last executive, huh?

This battle is a joke... then again, so is this entire portion of the game. No
one should have any trouble clearing out Team Rocket in this place with as low
levels as they're using, not if you've cleared the Fighting and Steel gyms and
gained high levels accordingly. His Raticate is his biggest threat, and a tiny
threat at best. Anything you happen to be using will crush Petrel.

This battle is awesome. You fight them alongside Lance, who only uses his main
Dragonite that's been following behind him since you met him. If you are still
at low levels in comparison to his hacked level 40 Dragonite, don't worry much
about it, as he'll sweep most of this battle for you. He only really uses Fly,
though.

Ariana is obviously the harder of the two. The Rocket Grunt can be defeated in
whatever way you've defeated the rest of them thus far. She uses Arbok, easily
her best Pokemon, first. Gloom and Murkrow are nothing and will fall fast. You
can actually just concentrate on the Grunt first if you want, or you can fight
Arbok before Dragonite KOs it. Your choice. Honestly, Dragonite can and easily
will solo this fight if you let it.

If you're using Ditto (and I salute you if you are; they're really annoying to
level up on a main team), you can transform into Dragonite and gain all of its
power and moves. It's ridiculously awesome.

Ha...ha ha ha...what a joke. Unless you don't have anything that can hit these
floating Poison-types hard, you have absolutely no excuses here. It's free EXP
in this battle. Weezing has Explosion, so be careful of that, as it deals much
damage and will more than likely KO whatever you're using, or reduce it to red
HP bar. Any Psychic or Steel Pokemon will solo this battle, though. All of his
Koffings are the same, and all are taken down similarly. Why he decided not to
use Raticate again, I don't know.

He's still the same weak Proton as before. He's increased his levels by 20, as
you can see, which means he's only barely above regular Grunts. I mean, Petrel
was better than this with a full team of only the Koffing family. Your levels,
of course, should be towering over this "fortress". As always, note the use of
Confuse Ray and Selfdestruct. He'd have been better off using his lv.36 Golbat
from gen 2, though.

Aside from the fact that Lance and the Team Rocket Grunt are not here for this
battle, it's pretty much the same as last time. You've dealt with her Murkrow,
Arbok's the same as ever, and Vileplume's a slightly tougher Gloom. Note Petal
Dance, which is strong. Have fun.

I'd love to say that Archer is more difficult than the other three executives,
but he's really not. Well, not entirely true: he's tougher than Proton. He has
Houndour and Houndoom, who aren't all that tough, and Koffing, who you have up
and beaten too many times. Any Water Pokemon can solo this battle, but bring a
Psychic Pokemon for Koffing if it makes you feel better.

And that's that for Team Rocket.

| 12: FINAL NOTES/CLOSING | FNCLS |
===================================

Well, that's about all I can do for you here. I've covered every important and
semi-important boss battle I can think of, and hopefully you'll be able to win
all of them with my advice - or without; they're really not that hard.

I bet you were annoyed by my obvious attempts to have 79 characters on each of
the lines per paragraph, huh? It was harder than it looked.

Here is where we close the guide, but before I do, I have some special thanks,
because some of you just deserve it:

- Me, Murk, for making this guide.
- You, the reader, for bearing with me long enough to reach the special thanks
section in the first place. I realize my puns are awful and duly apologize.
- CJayC and SBAllen, the former for making this website and the latter for his
continued service in keeping it running. We miss you terribly, Ceejus.
- Psypoke and Bulbapedia, because I would never have been able to fill out all
the movesets and Abilities and such for every Pokemon without them.
- Fellow writer Drayano, for having Abilities that I couldn't confirm myself.
- Nintendo, for making these two excellent games.

Also, I'd like to extend an additional special thanks to the following people,
each of whom emailed me regarding corrections and additional advice that I did
not record before:

- Tim Hart, for pointing out the glitch in Clair's Dragonairs.
- Alex Norris, who gave me the tip about Togepi's Extrasensory attack.
- Michael Ernstmeyer, who gave me the tip for using Bronzong against Red.
- Peter Mallett, who contributed the idea of using Kangaskhan on Morty's team.
- Michael Santiago, for his contributions to my guide regarding Morty, Jasmine
and Chuck during the first battles with all three.
- Kevin Connelly, who pointed out a mistake I made in the rematch with Jasmine
regarding her Bronzong, which has since been corrected.
- Josh Lewter, for pointing out that Chuck's Poliwrath during the first battle
has the ability Water Absorb, not Damp. Also corrected.
- Scott Huskins, for pointing out that I didn't originally put in how to fetch
the sixteen Leaders' phone numbers in order to rebattle them.
- Michael Willems, for reminding me that Machamp's ability guarantees a move's
successful hit. I had originally stated that Dynamicpunch is inaccurate here.
- Pyro Man and Christopher Wang, who informed me of the glitch with Lucario in
Bruno's second team. Also to Christopher for pointing out an error I made with
Sabrina's Jynx.

Well, that's it. Smell ya later.
