"Ipsa scientia potestas est, Knowledge itself is power"
~Sir Francis Bacon

This guide is designed to provide an overview of competitive battling for
Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire.  I have composed this guide with the intention to
provide useful information to new players and veterans alike, and have included
recommended movesets for the final evolution of every pokemon, including those
not currently obtainable in Ruby / Sapphire.  Read on and enjoy!

Contact and Submission Information - <II>
_______________________________________________________________________________

Regarding contacting me, please include a subject line with your email, even
something as simple as "Pokemon Ruby / Sapphire" because I am known to delete
emails without subjects lines on sight.  My email address is listed above.

As the movesets in this guide originated from a collaboration of submissions in
the gameFAQS forums, I will continue to accept submissions for individual
pokemon movesets and overall team strategies.  Please title all emails to this
effect "Pokemon Battle Guide Submission" so that I can quickly file emails
accordingly.  All future submissions become the property of this guide and its
registered owner, although author credit will be noted in all circumstances.

Rules for submissions:

When submitting a moveset for a pokemon, please render it in the following
format, as this is the format that I will consistently use throughout:

<Pokemon Name>@<Held Item>
Personality: <Personality Name>
Characteristic: <Characteristic Name>
~Move One
~Move Two
~Move Three
~Move Four

<Description>

Please also include a brief, coherent description of how the moves,
personality, item, and characteristic for your pokemon work in concert.
Editing pending, I will include this description if your submission is posted.

When submitting team strategies, make sure to include complete pokemon
descriptions in the above format for all named members of the team.  It is not
required for a strategy to include any named pokemon at all; the TSS (Toxic,
Sandstorm, Spikes - more on this later) strategy, for example, indicates only
pokemon types and consistent moves.

I reserve the sole right to decide which submissions are posted.  Due to the
volume of submissions I have already received, I only guarantee replies to
authors whose movesets or strategies will be posted.  I may reply to other
emails, including those concerning questions or corrections at my discretion.
Please only submit information once, and please do not email me asking if I got
your email, or why your submission was not posted, etc.

Remember to include your name, online or otherwise, in your email if you want
to be recognized for your hard work and effort!

General Terminology - <III>
_______________________________________________________________________________

This section is designed as a quick reference for terminology and abbreviation
explanations for the competitive pokemon battling community.

The Basics - Pokemon Abilities

Pokemon have a series of abilities that influence their performance in combat.
These include their characteristic, personality, and their six individual
number values called their statistics, or stats for short.

A pokemon's six stats are as follows:

Hit Points: Determines the maximum life (HP) a pokemon can have
(Physical) Attack: Determines damage when using physical attacks*
(Physical) Defense: Determines resistance to physical attacks
Speed: Determines which pokemon will attack first in battle
Special Attack: Determines damage when using special attacks*
Special Defense: Determines resistance to special attacks

*Attack types that are considered physical:
Bug, Fighting, Flying, Ghost, Ground, Normal, Poison, Rock, Steel

*Attack types that are considered special:
Dark, Dragon, Electric, Fire, Grass, Ice, Psychic, Water

The Actual Values for these stats (those listed in the information screen of
the pokemon) will grow and change as pokemon level up, gain combat experience,
and evolve.  The speed with which these stats grow and their maximum potential
are determined by the following factors: Pokemon Level, Base Stats, Individual
Values (IV's), Effort Values (EV's), Personalities, and sometimes
Characteristics.

Pokemon Level - Simply, a pokemon's statistics rise as it climbs in levels.
When a pokemon acquires enough experience to advance a level, the game raises
its statistics by a determined increment, but its stats are also recalculated
to account for any changes in Effort Values.  The maximum level for a pokemon
is 100.

Base Stats - Base stats are values unique to each pokemon species that
determine the overall potential of that pokemon.  They are not random and do
not vary between members of the same species.  Base stats will change when a
pokemon evolves to reflect the new base level for that evolution. This means
that a Pikachu will have the same base stats as every other Pikachu, but a
Raichu will have different (higher) base stats than a Pikachu. Effectively base
stats determine the overall potential for each pokemon evolution and provide a
uniform comparison between pokemon of different species and experience.

Individual Values (IV's) - When pokemon are first caught (or otherwise acquired
- through a hatched egg etc), each of their stats is given an individual value,
a number ranging from 0 to 31.  These numbers determine how much of the
potential allowed by the base stats that a pokemon's actual stats can reach.
The higher a pokemon's IV, the closer to the maximum value its stats will
reach.  IV's are also used in calculating the type and attack power for the
Hidden Power move (more on this later).

Effort Values (EV's) - Each of the six statistics for a pokemon has an effort
value.  These values reflect the amount and type of battle experience that a
pokemon has acquired.  When a pokemon defeats another in battle, the victor
receives effort value points to certain statistics; which stats receive points
is pre-determined by the defeated pokemon's species.  EV's begin at 0 and are
capped at 255.  Overall, a pokemon can have a maximum of 510 EV points across
all six statistics, and once this point is reached, the pokemon cannot gain any
further EV points.  For those familiar with previous pokemon games, effort
values are the Ruby / Sapphire equivalent of stat experience, except that there
is an overall cap on EV's, which is divided between stats instead of individual
caps for each stat.

Characteristics - Characteristics are like an always on ability for pokemon,
and like IV's, all pokemon have then and they are determined when the pokemon
comes into existence either through capture or hatching from an egg.  They can
have a variety of effects, such as halving the opposing pokemon's attack power
or making ground type moves ineffective. Most characteristics come into play
during combat, but some, however, function while walking around - the Gather
Items characteristic, for example gives your pokemon a chance to find items
after a battle.  A pokemon can only have one characteristic, although some have
the potential to have one of two different characteristics.

Personalities - Pokemon can have personalities, which alter their base
statistics slightly, adding to one and subtracting from another.  A pokemon can
have one hindering personality (one that subtracts from a stat) coupled with
one augmenting personality (one that adds to a stat), or they can be entirely
neutral, which is like not having any personality at all.  Personality affects
the base stat by 10%, with a hindering one reducing it to 90% of its original
value and an augmenting one boosting it to 110%.  Pokemon can have
personalities that affect each combination of their stats excluding Hit Points,
which are not included in personalities.

+ : The stat is augmented (x 1.1)

I refer to each of the five personalities with no stat alterations as Neutral.

The Basics - Combat

Type Effectiveness - Type effectiveness means that certain attack types enhance
or reduce their damage against certain other pokemon types.  Attacks can be
neutral, super-effective, not-very-effective, or ineffective. The complete list
of type effectiveness is charted in the table below.

Super-Effective Attacks - When an attack is super-effective, this means that
the defending type was weak against the attacking type.  An attack that is
super-effective will do double damage to the defending pokemon.

Not-Very-Effective Attacks - When an attack is not-very-effective, the
defending type was resistant to the attacking type.  A not-very-effective
attack will deal half damage to the defending pokemon.

Ineffective Attacks - Certain pokemon types are immune to certain type attacks
entirely; for example, a flying pokemon being attacked with a ground attack.
In this situation, an ineffective attack does not affect the defending pokemon
and deals no damage at all.

Dual Type Pokemon - In the case of a dual type defending pokemon, each type
contributes equally to the determination of super-effectiveness or resistance.
If one type is weak and the other resistant, the attack will do normal damage,
if both types are resistant, the attack will be reduced to 25% (50% x 50%), and
if both types are weak, then the attack will be 4 times (2 x 2) as effective.
If even one type of the defending pokemon is immune to the attack type, then
the attack does no damage, regardless of the other type.

+ : The attack is super-effective.

X : The attack is ineffective.

The most efficient ways to read this chart are to scan the columns
vertically for the types that a pokemon type resists (or is weak
against), and to scan horizontally for the types attacks that are super
effective against other pokemon.

Held Item Information - <IV>
_______________________________________________________________________________

This section provides a quick reference for the various held items that a
pokemon can use in battle.  Berries are called "consumable" items, because they
are gone after one use, while other items are "persistent," because their
effects continue as long as the pokemon holds the item.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Note: Locations that read "BG#" reference the various "Berry Givers" in the
game who will give you one or two berries a day, every day. It is random which
berry is given to you so just keep trying until you get the one you want. The
locations of each Berry Giver are listed below:

BG1: Route 111, near Route 113
BG2: Route 120, near Route 121
BG3: Route 123, house next to large garden
BG4: Lilycove City, standing on top of a ridge

_______________________________________________________________________________

*Note:  The first half of this chart consists of items which boost certain type
attack powers.  These items all increase damage by 10% of its final value.

As a personal preference, I generally do not affix type-damage boosting items
to pokemon who will battle competitively.  The increased damage is marginal,
and usually outweighed by something like Leftovers.  The only exception that I
make is when the pokemon I'm using has an obscenely damaging attack, such as a
Sunny Day Fire Blast, because the 10% boost makes a large enough difference
with such a high base damage.

Pokemon Moveset Recommendations - <V>
_______________________________________________________________________________

This section originally started as the famous Strategy Central post in the
gameFAQs forums, and many of the movesets were first introduced on those
boards.  Here I will provide a complete moveset for the final evolution forms
of all pokemon in Ruby / Sapphire, including those not currently obtainable in
the game.  Since all pokemon are contained within the game code, it's a
reasonable inference that Nintendo will allow access to them in the future, so
this guide provides movesets for currently unobtainable pokemon as well.
