The controls to the game are very customizable. There are four preset 
button layouts you can choose from or, if you prefer, you can edit what
buttons do which actions yourself.

Type A:
Left Flipper-Left on D-Pad
Right Flipper-A button
Tilt Left-L button
Tilt Right-R button
Tilt Up-L+R buttons

Type B:
Left Flipper-Left on D-Pad
Right Flipper-A button
Tilt Left-L button
Tilt Right-R button
Tilt Up-B button

Type C:
Left Flipper-L button
Right Flipper-R button
Tilt Left-Left on D-Pad
Tilt Right-A button
Tilt Up-Left on D-Pad+A button

Type D:
Left Flipper-L button
Right Flipper-R button
Tilt Left-Left on D-Pad
Tilt Right-Right on D-Pad
Tilt Up-Up on D-Pad

By choosing this option you can change the settings for each of the five
commands to whichever buttons you want to. You can also have the same 
button do more than one action. If you want to, you can have both flippers
set to the same button. However, this makes it impossible to do some events
on the boards (rather, it makes it more difficult actually) so the choice 
is yours. Feel free to use this option of one of the preset layouts.

                          ~2.The Board Basics~
There are two different boards that you can play on. They are the Ruby
board and the Sapphire board. Each of these boards has a decent amount of
differences between them, such as the general board layout, how to activate
certain modes, and most of all, the Pokemon you are able to catch in them.
You'll need to play each board multiple times before you can complete the

Before I describe the boards, when you start a new game you will notice
some numbers on the bottom row of the screen. The large number to the left
if your score. Doing almost anything on the board will earn in points, and
in turn increase your score. That's pinball basics. There are several other
numbers on the right side. From left to right, the first number next to the
Pokeball symbol is how many Pokemon you have caught. Whenever you catch or
evolve a Pokemon, this will increase by one. You will earn an extra ball 
when you catch 15 Pokemon.

The second number next to the Coin symbol is how many coins you currently
have. Shooting the ball up a certain ramp on both boards will earn you 
coins. You can spend these at the Pokemart for fabulous items to aid you
on your current ball. The final symbol next to the colored Pokeball is how
many balls you have remaining. You can get extra balls in several ways. You
get one for catching 15 Pokemon, you can get them very rarely on the slots,
or you can buy them in the Pokemart for 99 coins. If you lose all of your
balls, then it's game over. Simple as that. 

You start the game with 2 extra balls and 10 coins. You can collect more of
each if you are good. Coins are pretty easy to get, but Extra Balls are 
rare. Always try to get Extra Balls if you have the chance to do so.

Ruby Board
The Ruby Board is considered to be the easier of the two boards. The ball
will always start at the plunger, which is a Spoink here. Hit the A button
to launch the ball. At the bottom you have the typical flippers and side
bummpers. The side gutters will make you lose the ball if the saver isn't
on, or Pikachu can save it. Hit the left flipper button to make Pikachu 
move to the left side, and the right flipper to make him move to the right
side. If you have the Pika Charge stored, Pikachu will save the ball before
it falls down the gutter.

Above the flippers is a button near Chikorita. She will use Razor Leaf to
make Linnone pop his head out on the left and right sides of the board
nearby. If you hit the one on the left, it will make a Gulpin fall down. 
Repeat this three times to have three Gulpins total, activating Travel
Mode. If you hit the right Linoone, Makuhita will turn to face the right 
loop. You can push the A button to make him punch the ball when it comes
near him. If you do this right, it will send the ball up a side ramp and 
into a Nuzleaf. After the third hit, Nuzleaf will cover the gap with his
body, making a bridge. Hit through this loop again and you'll hit the
Upgrade Arrow, upgrading your Pokeball to the next level.

The right loop is the GET loop, and the left if the EVO loop. Right next to
the GET loop is Sharpedo. When two or more GET lights are flashing, you can
hit the ball into Sharpedo to start Catch 'em Mode. To the left of 
Sharpedo's ramp is a ramp leading to the Pokemart. Hit up the ramp once to
hit the doors, opening the shop. Hit up the ramp again to enter the shop.
The doors will remains open until you start another mode, at that time you
will need to reopen the doors.

Left of that ramp is a small button with a number above it. This is the 
bonus multiplier. At the end of ball bonus, your final total bonus score
will be multiplied by this number. Hit the switch to increase it by one. 
You can also increase it by hitting the Bonus Multiplier option in the 
Slots occasionally. Left of this is the bumpers. There's a switch to the
left of the pool. This will change what the bumpers are. They can be three
stationary Chinchous, three rotating Chinchous, one rotating Chinchou,
three stationary Lotad's, and rarely Whiscash will appear. If you hit the
ball into his mouth he will take you to the Spheal Bonus Stage. Hit any
other part of his body and he'll use Earthquake, violently shaking the
screen, before disappearing. Above the bumpers are three lights. The ball
with light them up as it passes them. Light all three to upgrade the ball
one level.

Left of the bumpers is the Hatch Lane. Hit Cyndaquil three times to make
it back up into the egg hut. Hit him again to make the egg hatch. After the
egg hatches, hit the hut again to make another egg appear. The lane to the
left of the hatch lane is where you can collect coins. The flashing light
shows you how many coins you'll earn when you hit the ball up the lane.

Also, on the right loop is a spinner with a Pikachu face on it. Hit this
to charge the Pika Meter. When it is full, you can make Pikachu save the
ball as it falls down the side gutters. The charge will disappear when you
use it, so you'll have to recharge the meter.

Sapphire Board
The Sapphire Board is generally considered to be the more difficult of the
boards. The ball will start on the Spoink plunger, so push A to send it 
onto the board. It will pass around the Egg chamber before going down a 
ramp to the flippers. On the left side of the board, near the flippers, is
a button. Each time you hit this, a Seedot will fall into the basket. Get
three Seedot's in the basket to start Travel Mode. However, the Seedot's 
will leave one at a time about every 30 seconds. This will reset each time
a new Seedot is dropped into the basket. If you want to start Travel Mode
you will need to be quick.

The button on the right side of the flippers makes Zigzagoon active. You
can tell he's active when he's on all four legs, looking like he's ready to
strike something. If he's like this and you are playing the slots, you can
push A to have him use Quick Attack and he will stop the wheel instantly.
You can use this to get the prizes you want with little difficulty.

The right loop as always is the GET loop. Each time you hit the ball 
through here, one of the letters lights up. Once at least 2 letters are lit
up, you can start Catch 'em Mode. The spinner is here on this loop as well.
Hit it enough to charge the Pika Meter so Pikachu can save the ball if it
falls on the outer lanes. Next to this loop is the Hatch Lane. Hitting the
ball up this ramp will send it into the Egg Incubator. One of the lights
will turn on each time you send the ball up here. Once you light all four
lights, the egg will hatch. Hit the ball up this ramp again after the egg
hatches to replace the egg.

Next to the Hatch Lane is a Wailmer. Hit the ball into him when you have
at least 2 GET lights active to start Catch 'em Mode. Right next to Wailmer
you will see a small switch with a P on it and a number on a panel on the
table. This is the Bonus Multiplier increaser. The number is the current
End of Ball Bonus multiplier. Hit the P switch to increase this by one. 
This also makes Pelipper, who is sitting in a nest above the P switch, to
turn and face the end of the coin ramp above him. If you shoot it up the
Coin Ramp, the ball will drop into his beak and he'll fly away with it and
drop the ball into the bumpers. If the P switch is flashing, and you hit it
and then get the ball into Pelipper's mouth, he will fly you away to the
Spheal Bonus Stage.

The Bumpers are in the top-center of the board. They are just three
Shroomish. Above them are the same three lights from the Ruby Board. If 
you make all three lights active you will upgrade the ball one level. Next
to the Bumpers is the Pokemart. It is guarded by a force field, however. To
remove the force field, you need to hit the + and - buttons on the sides of
the entrance. This will disable Plusle and Minun's attack. Once you hit 
both buttons you can enter the Pokemart at will. The barrier will reappear
and you'll need to deactivate it again if you start any game mode.

The Coin Ramp is left of the Pokemart. Hit the ball up this ramp to get the
amount of coins on the flashing arrow. You can get 1, 5, or 10 coins. The
ball will be dropped into the bumpers at the end of the ramp, or Pelipper's
mouth if he's facing the ramp. The EVO loop is next to the Coin Ramp. Hit
the ball up this loop to light up each letter in EVO. Once you do this
three times, the Pokemart will change into the EVO area. The barrier will
also disappear. Hit the ball into here to start EVO Mode.

                           ~3.Catch 'em Mode~
Catch 'em Mode is the game mode you will often be activating while on the
boards. It isn't very difficult to start and is rather easy to complete, 
but the only downside is that you won't recieve very many points for doing
so. However, it does bring you close to reaching the bonus stages where you
can rack up huge points. Catch 'em Mode is done in similar ways on both
boards, but there are some differences. You have 2:00 to catch the Pokemon.
If you fail to do so in two minutes, you will have to try again later after
relighting the GET lights.

Ruby Board
In the Ruby Board, to start Catch 'em Mode you need to shoot the ball into
Sharpedo. When Catch 'em Mode starts, you will see the silhouette of the
Pokemon you are trying to catch in the center of the board. You need to
reveal the Pokemon before you can catch it. To reveal the picture, you need
to hit the bumpers three times. This can either be easy or very hard 
depending on the current bumper setup. One rotating Chinchou is difficult
to hit, but three Lotad's or rotating Chinchous should make this quite 
simple. The first hit reveals one square, the second hit reveals another 
two squares, and the last bumper hit will reveal the last three squares.
They will be revealed one at a time. If you want to instantly reveal the
picture, hit the bumpers three times before the ball falls back to the

One the Pokemon has been revealed, you will need to catch it. The Pokemon 
will stay at the bottom of the screen. You need to hit it three times to
light up "Catch!" and you will catch the Pokemon. Don't worry about what
kind of Pokeball you currently have; you will ALWAYS capture a Pokemon when
it does the animation for it.

Once you catch your first Pokemon at the beginning of the board, you will
need to relight the GET lights to start Catch 'em Mode again. Shoot the
right loop to light up the letters. You can start Catch 'em Mode with just
GE lit up, but you can occasionally get better Pokemon if you light up GET.
Either way, when you see the "Catch" light pointing at Sharpedo flashing,
you should know you can catch a Pokemon then. The Latios Ball Saver will
be lit for the first sixty seconds of this mode.

Sapphire Board
In the Sapphire Board, Catch 'em Mode is started in a similar way. You need
to shoot the ball in Wailmer to start the mode. Like before, the silhouette
of the Pokemon you are trying to catch will appear in the middle of the
table, and you need to hit the Shroomish bumpers to reveal the picture. You
need to hit them three times. If you hit them three times before the ball
falls back to the bottom of the table, the entire picture will be instantly
revealed without wasting any of the time limit. Once you have hit the 
bumpers three times, the Pokemon will appear and you can start catching it.

There's an easy trick to catching the Pokemon. If the Latias Ball Saver 
light is still lit, lose the ball and resend it up the plunger. Don't shake
the table and you will get an easy two hits on the Pokemon before the ball
reaches the flippers again. From there, one more hit and you'll catch the

After catching your first Pokemon when you start the board, you will need
to relight the GET lights at the right loop. Once again, you can start 
Catch 'em Mode with just GE lit, but you can get better Pokemon if you
light up GET. You will have the Latias Ball Saver lit for sixty seconds.

                          ~4.Egg Hatch Mode~
On both boards you will notice an Egg sitting on an area of the board. With
a little work you can make this Egg hatch, starting the Egg Hatch mode. The
process to hatch the Egg is slightly different on both boards, but what you
need to do stays the same.

Ruby Board
You will notice a Cyndaquil in the Hatch lane. Each time you hit Cyndaquil,
he will back up just a little but. After the third hit, he will be pushed
into the hut where the Egg is resting and start incubating it. Once you hit
Cyndaquil again, Egg Hatch Mode will begin. The Egg will hatch into a 
random Pokemon that can only come out of Eggs (see the Pokemon Availability
section to see which ones can be hatched). The Pokemon will drop into the
center area of the board and will move around randomly in the middle area.
You have about 45 seconds to catch the Pokemon before it disappears. Since
the Pokemon is small, you only need to hit it twice. Try to aim as best as
possible so you don't waste time getting the ball stuck somewhere. The 
Latios Ball Saver will be lit for about 20 seconds. Once you complete/fail
the mode, send the ball back into the hut Cyndaquil was to make a new Egg
appear, starting the process anew.

Sapphire Board
When you shoot the ball at the beginning, the ball will pass through the
Incubator. There is a Hatch ramp leading to the incubator at the bottom of
the screen. Each time you shoot the ball up this ramp, one light will turn
on and heat up the Egg. Once all four lights have been lit, the Egg will
hatch. Again, you get the Latias Ball Saver for about 20 seconds and you 
only have roughly 45 seconds to hit the small Pokemon twice to capture it.
It's slightly harder here because the middle area of the board is larger
than its Ruby counterpart. Once you complete/fail the mode, hit the ball up
the Hatch ramp to make a new Egg appear on the Incubator, starting the 
process all over again.

                           ~5.Evolution Mode~
In order to obtain most Pokemon, you will have to evolve them. Some Pokemon
even evolve more than once, while others don't evolve at all. To evolve a
Pokemon, you will need to start EVO Mode. This mode can be started nearly
the exact same way on both boards. You cannot start this mode unless you
have at least one Pokemon that can be evolved. You have two minutes to
complete the mode. You can only evolve Pokemon you have caught on this 
playthrough of the table. You can't evolve an Abra you caught last game and
got a game over on, you can only evolve Pokemon that have been caught this

In EVO Mode, you will need to collect three evolutionary items to light up
EVO in the center of the table, opening the hole. Hit the ball into the
hole to evolve the Pokemon. The items can be and Experience symbol, Water/
Fire/Leaf/Thunder/Sun/Moon stones, GBA Link Cables, Happiness Hearts, or
Pokeblocks. It depends on the Pokemon being evolved. Evolving a Machoke 
would make you collect GBA Link Cables while evolving a Zigzagoon would 
make you collect Experience. You must get the items one at a time. Once you
collect the item, the next one will appear on the board. They appear in 
certain locations on the board so you can somewhat know what to expect.

Ruby Board
You will need to send the ball up the left loop three times, lighting up 
EVO. Once you have done this, the Pokemart will change its sign into the
Pokemon Center. The doors will stay open unless you start another mode, and
when you shoot the ball here you will be taken to a screen showing your
Pokemon that can be evolved. You can check to see if you have their evolved
forms here or not. Choose your Pokemon to begin the mode. The items you 
need to collect will appear in several spots on the board. During any 
single EVO Mode no two items will appear in the same spot. Here are the
locations the item can appear:
-In the outer loop (lose the ball and send it through the plunger to get 
this easily)
-In the center of the board
-Right infront of Sharpedo
-Halfway up the ramp to the Pokemart
-The middle of the Coin lane
-Halfway up the ramp leading to Nuzleaf

Sapphire Board
Like the Ruby Board, you will need to send the ball around the left loop
three times to light up the EVO lights. The barrier infront of the Pokemart
will disappear, and the sign above it will read EVO instead of "Shop". 
Shoot the ball into the cave to start EVO Mode. Choose your Pokemon and 
begin the mode. The items are far more difficult to reach on the Sapphire
Board, so try not to waste any time attempting to get these items. They can
appear in the following locations:
-At the top of the Coin ramp (lose the ball and send it through the plunger
to reach this one easily)
-In the center of the board
-Right infront of Wailmer
-Halfway up the ramp leading to the Incubator
-Infront of the P Bonus Multiplier switch
-In the outer loop
-In the center of the Shroomish bumpers (this one is nearly impossible to
get skillfully. You have the be VERY lucky to get the item if your unlucky
enough for it to land here)

                            ~6.Travel Mode~
You start the board in a randomly selected area, but perhaps you have 
milked all the Pokemon you can catch out of that area. In such an event you
should try traveling to a different area. The process is slightly different
on each board. If you are sucessful, you will be given the option of 
whether or not you want to travel to a different area. Each board has seven
different areas you can visit. The first six can be randomly selected at
the beginning and are usually traveled to, but the last area can only be
visited under certain circumstances.

Ruby Board
In this board, hit the button where Chikorita is to make her use Razor Leaf
on the two Linnone's, making them pop their heads out. If you hit the 
Linnone on the left, a Gulpin will fall down. You only have a limited time
to hit the Linnone so hurry up! Once you have three Gulpin's (they don't
disappear), Travel Mode will initate. You have one minute to shoot the 
ball through either the left or right loop. It doesn't matter which one you
choose. Once you do, the center hole will open. Shoot the ball into it and
choose whether you want to travel or not. That's all there is to it. Here 
are the locations you can travel to:

1.Granite Cave
2.Petalburg Forest
3.Safari Zone
4.Mt. Chimney
5.Lilycove City

Sapphire Board
On this board, traveling is slightly easier but you need to be quick. There
is a button on the left side of the board near the flippers. If you hit it,
a Seedot will fall into a basket. You need to get three Seedot's into the
basket to begin Travel Mode. However, one Seedot will jump out about every
30 seconds, so you need to keep hitting the button to replace them. Get 
three in the basket to begin the mode. Like the Ruby Board, just shoot the
ball up the left or right loops to open the hole in the center of the 
board. Shoot it in here to get the option to travel.

1.Granite Cave
2.Petalburg Forest

Although both boards share several areas, several Pokemon can only be
caught in these areas on seperate boards. Both areas can reach the Ruins,
but this is the special circumstance area. 

Reaching the Ruins Area
Several rare Pokemon, including Jirachi, only appear in the Ruins area. 
However, this area is fairly hard to reach. You need to travel at least 
five times to reach this area. Basically, you need to shoot the ball up the
same loop five times. It doesn't need to be consecutive. So, if you shot 
the ball up the left loop 3 times, the right loop once, then the left loop
2 more times, you'd be in the Ruins area. Realistically, you are guarenteed
to reach the Ruins by your ninth travel. 

                         ~7.Pokeball Upgrades~
During the game you should try to upgrade the ball as often as possible. 
This will allow you to earn more points, especially during the Bonus 
Stages. Both stages have a similar way of upgrading the ball, but one board
has an extra, easier way of doing so as well. The ball upgrades are as

Pokeball-The normal red and white ball you start every game with. You earn
normal points with this ball, nothing special.

Great Ball-The first upgrade makes the ball become a Great Ball, which is
blue with red striped on it. You will earn twice the normal points with 
this ball.

Ultra Ball-If you manage to upgrade the Great Ball, it will become an Ultra
Ball which is yellow with black stripes. You will earn triple the normal
amount of points earned on the board and in bonus stages.

Master Ball-If you upgrade the Ultra Ball, it will become the purple with
red dots Master Ball. You will earn quadruple the normal amount of points
with this ball, and that's a ton of points you can get for finishing a
Bonus Stage with it. 

All ball upgrades last about one minute, then the ball goes back down one
level. So if you have an Ultra Ball, after a minute it will become a Great
Ball, then after another minute it will be a Pokeball again. Upgrading the
ball when it's a Master Ball will reset to minute timer you have. In Bonus
Stages, you will not go back a stage due to time. However, if you lose the
ball in a Bonus Stage, when it reappears it will have gone back a level. Do
your best not to lose the ball in these stages. You can earn upgrades also
by getting them on the slots, or by buying them in the Pokemart.

Ruby Board
At the top of the board, just above the bumpers, are three lights. As the 
ball passes these lights, they will light up. If you light up all three
lights, the ball will upgrade one level. The lights shut off so you can
redo the process to upgrade the ball even further. If the current bumper 
setup is that of the rotating Chinchou, this should be rather easy to do 
with some luck. It won't require too much effort to upgrade the ball if it
gets stuck in a loop with the bumpers. Not that you should complain about
it or anything, since it's easy upgrades. You can change the positions of
the lights by hitting the flipper buttons to make your job even easier.

Another way of upgrading the ball is hitting the arrow just past Nuzleaf.
In order to reach this arrow, you need to activate Makuhita. Hit Chikorita
to have her use Razor Leaf on the Linoone. Hit the one on the right to 
make Makuhita face north. When you hit the right flipper, he will make a
punch. He can hit the ball with his punches and they almost always head up
the ramp that leads to Nuzleaf. Hit Nuzleaf three times with this tactic
and he will fall over, making a bridge across the gap. Hit the ball up the
ramp one last time and you will roll over Nuzleaf and into the arrow, 
giving you an easy upgrade.

Sapphire Board
Unlike the Ruby Board, you have only one way of upgrading the ball here.
There are the same three lights above the Shroomish bumpers that you can
light up by passing them. Light up all three lights and you will upgrade 
the ball. Again, this upgrade only lasts about a minute. The Shroomish
bumpers have a tendency to keep the ball above them for a long time, so
getting a Master Ball can be pretty easy.

                         ~8.The Pokemart Items~
There is a Pokemart on both boards. You have to unlock it first before you
can enter, but once you do you can spend your coins on fabulous items. Some
of them are pretty useless, but there are some you should always buy as 
soon as possible. Here's the list of the items:

-30 Second Ball Saver-10 Coins (The Latios/Latias Ball Saver will be lit 
up for the next 30 seconds)
-Great 60 Second Ball Saver-20 Coins (The Latios/Latias Ball Saver will be
lit up for the next 60 seconds)
-Ultra 90 Second Ball Saver-30 Coins (The Latios/Latias Ball Saver will be 
lit up for the next 90 seconds)
-Upgrade-40 Coins (The ball is upgraded one level for about one minute)
-Pika Saver-50 Coins (Pichu joins Pikachu in the right side gutter. The
Pika Meter will be forever charged until you lose the ball, and Pichu will
stay until you lose the ball)
-Spheal Bonus Challenge-60 Coins (Starts the Spheal Bonus Challenge)
-Extra Ball-99 Coins (You get an extra ball. As fas as I know, you can only
buy this twice per game)

You should always buy the Pika Saver first, as the ball will very often go
down the side gutters. Extra balls should be yor next priority, as there's
no better way to rack up points than have extra balls to do so with. The
Spheal Bonus Challenge is nice if you currently have an Ultra/Master Ball,
as the amount of points you get in the stage will be multiplied by the 
level of the ball. Here's how to open the shop on both boards.

Ruby Board
Shoot the ball up the Shop ramp to hit the doors, opening them. Shoot the
ball up the ramp again to enter the shop. The doors will stay open until
you start a mode, in which case you will need to reopen them. You can't 
enter the Pokemart when all the EVO lights are lit up, as the Pokemart
changes into the Pokemon Center. You also can't enter the Pokemart during
any mode.

Sapphire Board
The Sapphire Board has a harder to open Pokemart. You will see Plusle and
Minun standing on a platform, creating an electric barrier blocking the
shop. Hit the + and - buttons to disable Plusle and Minun, destroying their
barriers and allowing you to enter the shop. You can't enter the shop when
the EVO lights are on, as this becomes the starting point of EVO Mode. You
also can't go into the shop when any other mode is currently ongoing. You
will need to disable Plusle and Minun each time another mode starts.

                        ~9.The Slots Rewards~
At the bottom of the board there are four lanes. Two are the outer gutters
which will make you lose your ball as they lead to the bottom drain 
(Pikachu and Pichu can save the ball here), and two inner lanes that lead
to the flippers. There are lights above each lane, each representing a
letter. As you pass them, the letter lights up. Light all four to spell
"SLOT" to open up the slots hole in the center of the board. You can use
the flipper buttons to shift the position of the letters to make it easier
to spell "SLOT". Once you hit the ball into the hole, a roulette will play.

Stop it with the A button, and it will slow down and stop at your prize. 
The prizes suck at first, but as you keep getting slots with the same ball,
you will find the prizes get insanely good before resetting to the 
beginning again. On the Sapphire Board, you can use Zigzagoon's Quick
Attack to stop the slots immediately to grab your prize. It's best to do 
this as the roulette starts slowing down, making it easier to time. Here
is what can appear on the slots:

-30 Second Ball Saver (The Latios/Latias Ball Saver will be lit 
up for the next 30 seconds)
-Great 60 Second Ball Saver (The Latios/Latias Ball Saver will be
lit up for the next 60 seconds)
-Ultra 90 Second Ball Saver (The Latios/Latias Ball Saver will be 
lit up for the next 90 seconds)
-Upgrade (The ball is upgraded one level for about one minute)
-Max Upgrade (The ball is upgraded to a Master Ball instantly)
-Pika Saver (Pichu joins Pikachu in the right lane. The Pika Meter will be
charged indefinitely until you lose the ball for good. Thusly, you can 
never lose the ball through the outside lanes)
-Bonus Multipler (Adds 1-5 extra to the current End of Ball Bonus
-Catch 'em Mode Start (Begins Catch 'em Mode)
-Small (You get between 100 and 900 points)
-Big (You get between 1,000,000 and 9,000,000 points)
-EVO Mode Start (Begins EVO Mode provided you have a Pokemon that can be
-Coin +10 (You get 10 Coins)
-Coin +30 (You get 30 Coins)
-Coin +50 (You get 50 Coins)
-30 Second Timer Up (The next timed event with a visible timer will have a
bonus 30 seconds added to it. The Latios/Latias Ball Saver will still last
the standard amount of time it would if the mode didn't have this bonus)
-Spheal Bonus Challenge (You get warped to the Spheal Bonus Challenge)
-Kecleon Bonus Stage (You get warped to the Kecleon Bonus Stage, Ruby
Board only)
-Groudon Bonus Stage (You get warped to the Groudon Bonus Stage, Ruby Board
-Dusclops Bonus Stage (You get warped to the Dusclops Bonus Stage, Sapphire
Board only)
-Kyogre Bonus Stage (You get warped to the Kyogre Bonus Stage, Sapphire 
Board only)
-Rayquaza Bonus Stage (You get warped to the Rayquaza Bonus Stage, only
available as the bonus stage after you catch Groudon/Kyogre)
-Extra (You recieve an extra ball)
-Jirachi Arrival (Jirachi will appear on the board with a 30 second time
limit for capture. This only appears on the slots if you are in the Ruins
area, and is ALWAYS on the slots until you hit it. However, once you 
attempt this mode, the Jirachi Arrival space on the slots will not reappear
until after you start a new round and get a game over)

                         ~10.The Bonus Stages~
Below the picture of the area you are currently in you will see three
Pokeball symbols. Each time you catch a Pokemon, one of these lights up. If
you evolve a Pokemon, two of them light up. Once all three have been 
lighted, the hole will open leading to a Bonus Stage on the board. The 
Bonus Stage you go to depends on the board you are on, and what the last
bonus stage you beat was. Here is the order you will visit the Bonus
Stages. You have to beat one to move to the next stage in the loop.

Ruby Board:Kecleon > Groudon > Kecleon > Groudon > Rayquaza
Sapphire Board:Duskull > Kyogre > Dusclops > Kyogre > Rayquaza

After beating Rayquaza's Bonus Stage, the loop restarts. The Bonus Stages
are setup for maximum point getting. Clearing these stages nets you massive
points, with the exception of the Spheal Bonus Challenge where your goal is
just to score as many points as you can. You CANNOT lose your ball in the
Bonus Stages. However, if you lose the ball it won't reappear for about 6
seconds, and you have a strict time limit so try not to lose the ball. 
Also, if the ball has been upgraded, there is no downgrade timer during the
Bonus Stages. Instead, when you lose the ball, it goes down a stage. Again,
just don't lose the ball. However, it can sometimes be a strategic move.
Here are the Bonus Stages with diagrams of them. The "F"'s are the

Time Limit-2:00
Reward-5,000,000 points per Spheal into the basket, 1,000,000 points per 
Pokeball into the basket

You can get to this stage either by getting it from the slots, shooting the
ball into Pelipper's mouth when the P switch is flashing, shooting the ball
into Whiscash's mouth when he appears on the Ruby Board, or by buying it at
the Pokemart. This Bonus Challenge is available on both boards.

When you are thrown onto the board, you will see a smal pool of water in 
the area with the flippers, two icy slides leading to a Sealeo, and a small
basketball hoop. Your object is to hit as many Spheal's and Pokeball's into
the basket as possible in 2:00. You want to aim for Spheal's more, though,
as you get far more points for them. So how do you get basket with them?

That's rather simple for just the Pokeball. Shoot the ball up one of the 
icy ramps. Sealeo will bounce the ball three times before shooting it into
the basket, at which point it was fall back to the flippers. You want to 
aim for Spheal's more for higher points, however. In the small pool you 
will see two Spheal's swimming around. Hit them to make them dive back 
underwater. Keep doing this until at least one of them tries to climb one
of the icy slides. Hit the Spheal with the Pokeball (a light tap works just
fine) and it will be propelled to the top of the slide and onto the Sealeo,
who will bounce him into the basket. If you hit Sealeo when he is bouncing
the Spheal, he will drop the Spheal and you'll need to try again. This is
all you have to do for the two minute time limit. Once time is up, the game
will count how many Pokeball baskets you got and how many Spheal baskets 
you got, and add the scores together. This total is multiplied by the 
Pokeball bonus, so you'd get triple the points with an Ultra Ball. Quite

This is the first Bonus Stage you will go to on the Ruby Board. It takes 
place in the Safari Zone, and your job is to defeat Kecleon within two
minutes. It would be easy, but Kecleon turns himself invisible, making him
difficult to find. What you need to do is hit him with the ball to make him
trip, then hit him again while he's tripped to deal damage. You will clear
the stage if you hit him 10 times.

There are some telltale signs of where he is. You can occasionally see dust
clouds he makes when he's scuttling from one place to the next. Rustling
grass and ripples in the water also point out where he's moving. If you're
having trouble, there is help. Hit the large tree in the back to make the
Devon Scope fall from the branches. Hit this with the ball to equip them
for about 15 seconds, allowing you to see Kecleon. Once they wear off you
will need to recollect them in the same manor.

When you hit Kecleon, he turns visible again before quickly moving to a new
location and turning invisible. You can make him trip easily when he's 
visible and get free hits on him if you're quick. This stage isn't too
difficult, but if you are unable to find and hit Kecleon quickly this can
get quite annoying.

Time Limit-3:00
Reward-50,000,000 points

You can go to this Bonus Stage after you have cleared the Kecleon Bonus
Stage. Your object is to defeat Groudon within the three minute time limit.
It seems pretty hard, but once you understand how this stage works, it is
actually very simple. At the start, Groudon will fall from the ceiling and
use Rock Throw, dropping three rocks in random locations onto the board.
These may be out of your way, or totally block your path. They take three
hits to destroy. 

After a short time, Groudon will use Eruption, destroying the rocks and
flinging your ball into the wall from the resulting shockwave. Four pillars
(marked with the numbers on the diagram). These fire pillars will make it
impossible to hit Groudon. The pillars will slowly go away by themselves,
but you need to hurry up the process. Keep hitting the front pillars until
they disappear, allowing you to get many free hits onto Groudon. About the
time you do this, Groudon will rear his head back and shoot Fire Blast at
the ball. This is a highly inaaccurate attack for him, and as long as the 
ball is moving side to side it should miss. If it hits, keep hitting the
flipper buttons to be released from its grasp quicker.

Groudon will use Rock Throw again after Fire Blast. Once all of the pillars
have disappeared (they disappear after about 25 seconds if you don't hit 
them enough), Groudon will use Eruption again and this loop will start 
anew. Keep up this cycle to hit Groudon 15 times and you will clear the 
stage. There's an easy way to get about 8 free hits on Groudon. Before he
uses Eruption, if you can get the ball above Groudon then the ball can't 
fall down due to the pillars blocking the way. This will make the ball keep
hitting Groudon, allowing for many easy hits.

If this is your second time beating this Bonus Stage in the same game (as
in, without getting a game over), then you will catch Groudon upon your
second completion.

The setting of this Bonus Stage is in an abondoned graveyard, with several
tombstones on the board (marked by the X's). When you start, you will see
two Duskull's slowly floating from side to side. You need to hit the
Duskull's once to make them disappear. If you take too long to hit a 
Duskull, it will warp to another area on the board. When you hit a Duskull,
another one will appear. Basically, you need to kill 20 Duskull's. This
should take about a minute, depending on how lucky you are with the 
locations the Duskull warp to. 

Once you have defeated the last Duskull, the timer will stop briefly, and
the ground will shake with stomping several times. The timer will resume
when a large Dusclops finishes materializing in the center of the board.
You need to hit Dusclops five times to defeat him. That may seem simple,
but he will suck up the ball if you hit him with a frontal attack. Bounce
the ball around the board to strike him in the back. Every few seconds he
will walk a little close to the flippers, and eventually back up. When he
is walking, you can hit him with a frontal attack and he won't suck up the
ball. Only five hits do him in, and since you can abuse the time where he
walks to get asy hits, this part of the stage shouldn't present too much of
a problem unless you are very low on time.

You can only go to the Kyogre Bonus Stage once you beat the Dusclops Bonus
Stage on the Sapphire Board. Kyogre will begin at the top of the board in
his resting area. After about four seconds he will shake a bit, flashing
white, and attack using Sheer Cold which sends a shockwave of frost around
the field, guarenteeing that the ball gets frozen. Rapidly push the flipper
buttons to unfreeze the ball. You can stop this attack. When you see him
shaking, hit him with the ball. This will cancel out his attack. After
using, or failing to do so, Sheer Cold, Kyogre will create two whirlpools.
If you hit the ball into these, they will ensnare it for about 8 seconds.
Try to avoid them.

Right after using Whirlpool, Kyogre will use Dive. The whirlpools will 
disappear before he resurfaces for the first time. Look for the bubbles. He
only reappears for about 1.5 seconds, so you have little time to hit him.
He will resurface twice before returning to his original spot. Kyogre will
repeat this process all over again after finishing Dive. Hit Kyogre 15 
times to clear the stage.

If this is the second time you defeat the Kyogre Bonus Stage without 
getting a game over, then you will capture Kyogre instead of just defeating

This is the final Bonus Stage you can go to, and you can only visit it 
after catching Groudon/Kyogre. You need to hit Rayquaza 15 times within the
time limit. Seems pretty easy as the board doesn't look too tricky. Too bad
Rayquaza isn't going to take that crap. Rayquaza will move from side to 
side. As if that wasn't bad enough, it will be hovering above the ground. 
If your timing isn't dead on, the ball will harmlessly pass under Rayquaza
instead of hitting it. After several seconds, Rayquaza will stop and glow
yellow, then use Thunder on the ball. While he's stopped you can get an 
easy hit in. If Thunder hits, hit the flipper buttons quickly to escape the
grasp. There's a trick you can use with Thunder to get several more easy
hits. Hit the ball right next to Rayquaza so the Thunder hits it next to
him. Rayquaza will hover up and down in place, and the ball will touch him
each time, counting as a hit. You can get about 5 easy hits this way. The
timing is rather tricky, however.

Several seconds after using Thunder, Rayquaza will use Fly and leave the
stage. He will then use Extremespeed to zip across the screen, flinging 
your ball to the wall. This also creates two tornadoes that trap the ball
for about 8 seconds if you touch them. Rayquaza will return to the screen
after the tornadoes appear. After Rayquaza uses Thunder, the twisters will
disappear. Try not to waste time getting hit by the twisters, as you need
every second to keep hitting Rayquaza. 15 attacks, and you will clear this
stage. If you have a Master Ball when you finish, that's nearly 400,000,000
points you will earn!

If this is your second time clearing this stage in the same game, as in 
without getting a game over, you will catch Rayquaza. In short, the Bonus
Stage where you catch Rayquaza will be the 10th one you beat. It's
difficult, but with some effort you should be able to do it eventually.

                       ~11.Pokemon Board Locations~
Every Pokemon is bound to a specific area where it will only appear. Some
Pokemon only appear on a certain board. You will need to go through each
board many times before you are able to catch all of the Pokemon. And if
just catching them in their areas wasn't enough, a decent amount of Pokemon
can only be obtained from hatching them. The hatched Pokemon can be found
on any area on any board, but the Pokemon inside will always be random from
a certain list.

~Petalburg Forest~

~Mt. Chimney~

~Lilycove City~

                       ~12.Capturing Rare Pokemon~
There are some Pokemon that can't be caught by normal means, so they 
require a bit more effort and luck to capture. Here's those Pokemon, and
how you need to capture them.

Kyogre is only found in his respective bonus stage. The first time you beat
it in any one game, Kyogre will run away when defeated. If you return to
the stage in the same game without getting a game over, then instead of 
him running away when defeated, you will capture him.

Groudon is only found in his respective bonus stage. Like Kyogre, he runs
away the first time he's defeated. Return to the stage the second time in 
the same game and when you defeat him you will instead capture him.

Rayquaza can only be found in his respective bonus stage. Like before, he
will run away when you defeat him the first time around. If you somehow
manage to get back to his stage a second time in the same game, upon his
defeat you will capture Rayquaza.

Latios only appears in the Ruby Board. He has a 1% chance of appearing any
time you start Catch 'em Mode. He has the same odds of appearing in ANY

Latias only appears in the Sapphire Board. Like Latios, she has a 1% chance
of appearing whenever Catch 'em Mode starts. She can be found in any area.

Jirachi is a difficult Pokemon to obtain. Firstly, you need to be in the
Ruins area. You need to keep traveling until you finally arrive at this
area. Once you have arrived, whenever you start the slots you should notice
the "Jirachi Arrival" panel. If you land on this, Jirachi will float down.
She will move around the center of the board in a slow pace and you'll need
to hit her 3 times to catch her. She's the same size as a normal Pokemon so
it isn't too tough. However, you only have 30 seconds (You don't need to
hit the bumpers or anything, just flat out hit Jirachi 3 times). If you can
get the 30 Second Time Bonus before this, it'd be very helpful. This stage
can easily be done in about 15 seconds though, just don't panic.

Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Aerodactyl
You have a 1% chance of finding these Pokemon in any area on the Ruby 
Board. They can't be found on the Sapphire Board. There's nothing too 
special about these guys, and the three starters CAN'T be evolved. They are
just for novelty to slightly extend the Pokedex.

                        ~13.Pokedex Descriptions~
Here's a list of all of the Pokemon in the Pokedex in numerical order, as
well as their Pokedex descriptions. You can check here which Pokemon you 
are still missing.

Wood Gecko Pokemon
"Treeko has small hooks on the bottom of its feet that enable it to scale
vertical walls. This Pokemon attacks by slamming foes with its thick tail."

"The leaves growing out of Grovyle's body are convenient for camouflaging
it from enemies in the forest. This Pokemon is a master at climbing trees
in the jungle."

"The leaves growing on Sceptile's body are very sharp edged. This Pokemon
is very agile - it leaps all over the branches of trees and jumps on its
foe from above or behind."

"Torchic sticks with its trainer, following behind with unsteady steps. 
This Pokemon breathes fire of over 1,800 degrees F, including fireballs 
that leave the foe scorched black."

mountains. This Pokemon's legs possess both speed and power, enabling it
to dole out ten kicks in one second."

"In battle, Blaziken blows out intense flamers from its wrists and attacks
foes courageously. The stronger the foe, the more intense this Pokemon's
wrists burn."

Mud Fish Pokemon
"In water, Mudkip breathes using the gills on its cheeks. If it is faced
with a tight situation in battle, this Pokemon will unleash its amazing
power - it can crush rocks bigger than itself."

Mud Fish Pokemon
"Marshtomp is much faster at traveling through mud than it is at swimming.
This Pokemon's hindquarters exhibit obvious development, giving it the
ability to walk just on its hind legs."

Mud Fish Pokemon 
"Swampert predicts storms by sensing subtle differences in the sounds of 
the waves and tidal winds with its fins. If a storm is approaching, it 
piles up boulders to protect itself."

"At first sight, Poochyena takes a bite at anything that moves. This 
Pokemon chases after prey until the victim becomes exhausted. However, it
may turn tail if the prey strikes back."

"Mightyena gives obvious signals when it is preparing to attack. It starts
to growl deeply and then flattens its body. This Pokemon will bite savagely

"Zigzagoon restlessly wanders everywhere at all times. This Pokemon does so
because it is very curious. It becomes interested in anything that it
happens to see."

obstacle, it makes a right-angle turn to evade it. This Pokemon is very
challenged by gently curving roads."

evolution. However, it is now thought that this Pokemon slakes its thirst
by drinking rainwater that collects on its silk."

for collecting pollen from flowers. This Pokemon rides the spring winds as
it flits around gathering pollen."

Cocoon Pokemon
"If it is attacked, Cascoon remains motionless however badly it may be 
hurt. It does this so because if it were to move, its body would be weak
upon evolution. This Pokemon will also not forget the pain it endured."

Poison Moth Pokemon
"When Dustox flaps its wings, a fine dust is scattered all over. This dust
is actually a powerful poison that will even make a pro wrestler sick. This
Pokemon searches for food using its antennae like radar."

thought to have returned to water because the leaf on its head grew large
and heavy. It now lives by floating atop the water."

horribly unpleasent to be touched by this Pokemon's hands. Lombre is often

become very energetic and active. Even in battle, this Pokemon will exhibit
an amazing amount of power."

Acorn Pokemon

sucks moisture from the tree while hanging off the branch. The more water
it drinks, the glossier this Pokemon's body becomes."

of the forest to startle people. This Pokemon dislikes having its long nose

Wicked Pokemon

dating back over a thousand years. It creates terrific windstorms with the
fans it holds."

Tinyswallow Pokemon
"Taillow courageously stands its ground against foes, however strong they
may be. This gutsy Pokemon will remain defiant even after a loss. On the
other hand, it cries loudly if it becomes hungry."

                         ~13.Tips and Tricks~
There isn't much else I can describe for tips and tricks. Just remember
that most of your points will come from the bonus stages. However, there
is another way you will get a ton of points. The Bonus Multiplier will
increase the End of Ball Bonus score. It can reach a maximum of 99,
unfortunately (I've hit that maximum several times before). But how big 
does that bonus go? When I reached the multiplier to 99 once, and lost the
ball quite a while later, my final bonus was roughly 3,200,000,000 points.
Yeah, that's 3.2 billion points, effectively nearly doubling my current
score. Focus on getting a high multiplier, but also focus on things that
increase the End of Ball Bonus (catching/evolving Pokemon, slot plays,
Pika Savers, Travels done, etc.). 

Overall, you just need to keep the ball alive to keep earning points. 
Always buy the Pika Saver first in the shop, or try to get it first on the
slots. Having both side alleys guarenteed to never be able to lose the ball
(since Pikachu or Pichu will always save it) is damn nice, making it only
carelessness the way you can lose the ball between the flippers. Don't 
forget you can tilt the board as much as you want. It may prove useful.

If you are aiming just for points, you will want to go to the Bonus Stages
as often as possible, preferably with an Ultra/Master ball. By the time you
catch Rayquaza, you will have earned a minimum of about 520,000,000 points.
If anyone's curious about my high scores, here they are:

Ruby Score-8,474,747,736
Sapphire Score-5,003,758,006

Good luck on achieving high scores. You don't get anything for getting a
high score except putting your name on the list, and you also get nothing
for completing the Pokedex but the knowledge that you finally accomplished
that annoying task.
