According to United States Federal Law, you are entitled to have one (1) backup copy of any software that you legally own. Since cartridges contain software (the game program itself), it falls under this law. Nintendo cannot invalidate United States Federal Law by stating in the introduction to the Manual: "You can't have backups of this software". So, do yourself a favor and go out and purchase a copy of the cartridge. You'll be glad that you did. Not only this, there are a few problems with using ROMs of Gold and Silver on emulators. Many of the emulators out there do not keep track of the internal clock of the Gameboy. Thus, it will either be perpetually night, or perpetually day. Some emulators do not have this problem. In addition, some times events (like going on the boat) may never let you leave that area . . . ..........MINI-FAQ Q: Can you tell me where you can get the ROM? A: Sorry, but I can't tell you. Search around the 'net, and you should have no problem. Q: How do I get passed the "shaking" tree? A: Check the section "Enju City and the Phantom Badge". Q: How do I get the Radio? A: Check the section "Kogane City and the Regular Badge". Q: Where is the Pokemon League? A: Go back to Wakaba Town (the first one), and surf to the right. You will need Flash and Waterfall to get through the cave there. Q: How do I move Snorlax? A: You have to get your Radio Upgraded in the town to the east of Yamabuki City. Then check the section "Nivi City and the Grey Badge". Q: Where is HM 07? A: In the cave between Choju Town and Fusube City. It's in an Item Ball. Q: How do I breed Pokemon? A: Check the "Breeding Pokemon Section". Q: Where's Pikablu? A: Pika who? There's no such thing as Pikab*u. What's that? "There's no such thing as Pikab*u". Spread it around. Q: Where's Pichu? A: Breed two Pikachus. Q: Where's Pikachu? A: South of Nivi [Pewter] City. It has about a 1 in 15 encounter rate. Q: How do you evolve (Pokemon name) into its new Evolution in Gold and Silver? A: Most require you to equip an item on them, and then trade them to get them to evolve. For example: Onix + Metal Coat + Trade = Hanegeru Gloom + Trade = Kireihana Slowpoke + (item from scientist in Slowpoke dungeon) + Trade = Slowking Q: How do I get the Pokegods in Gold ans Silver. A: THERE IS -NO- SUCH THING AS A POKEGOD IN GOLD AND SILVER. Repeat after me: THERE IS -NO- SUCH THING AS A POKEGOD IN GOLD AND SILVER. What does that mean? THERE IS -NO- SUCH THING AS A POKEGOD IN GOLD AND SILVER. What's that again? THERE IS -NO- SUCH THING AS A POKEGOD IN GOLD AND SILVER. And one more time for the cheap seats: THERE IS -NO- SUCH THING AS A POKEGOD IN GOLD AND SILVER. Spread it around. Q: Where are Charmander, Squirtle . . . (most of the Pokemon from the old game)? A: You need to trade from a JAPANESE version of Red/Blue/Green/Yellow to get most of the old Pokemon. What? You though that Nintendo would stop with Red and Blue? You thought that you wouldn't have to spend more money? Q: Where's Serebii? A: Unknown. Thought to be completely random. ----------| THE GAME ..........THE BEGINNING When you start out, the first question that the game asks you is the hour of the day. The next is the minute. You will begin in your house in Wakaba Town. Go downstairs, and after you mother asks you the day of the week, she will give you your PokeGear. Now, go to the house all of the way up and to the left. This is Professor Utsugi's Lab. Once you go into the lab, Utsugi will talk, then give you the choice of three Pokemon on the table. The left one is Hinoarashi (a fire Pokemon), the middle one is Waninoko (a water Pokemon), and the right one is Chikoriita (a grass Pokemon). [AUTHOR'S NOTE: I chose Chikoriita. It learns Razor Leaf at level 8. It's chance for critical hits it good, and would be a nice starting Pokemon for you. It can learn Flash and Cut.] Before you leave, Utsugi's assistant will give you a Potion (you can't avoid it). Don't worry about Poke Balls just yet; they will be given to you later. ..........YOSHINO CITY AND THE POKEMON ELDER Your destination is Yoshino City to the west, but you should take the time to raise your Pokemon up to level 10 just outside Wakaba town. You will have an easier time this way. If you need to heal your Pokemon, go to Utsugi's lab and use the computer. It acts as a Pokemon Center. Once you've built up to level 10 (which shouldn't take very long), go west. Don't bother going up, because you won't be able to get very far anyway. Keep going until you get to Yoshino City. Talk to the old man at the beginning of the town, and answer "yes" to his question, and he'll take you on a tour of the town. Plus, when he ends at this house, he will give you a Map Card. It will allow you to access a map from your PokeGear. Go north, and into the house. Here, a man will give you an item called "Spirit Fruit". There are many different types of Spirit Fruit around the game (some heal, cure poison, paralysis, etc.), and you can get them from the large flowers that appear during the game (there is one outside of his house). The good thing about Spirit Fruit is that you can equip it on a Pokemon, and whenever it reaches a certain low degree of Hit Points, it will automatically use that Spirit Fruit. Keep going east and north to the Pokemon Elder's house. He will give you a Mysterious Egg. Plus, Professor Oak will give you your Pokedex. He'll also tell you to go to Kogane City. Not only that, he will heal all of your Pokemon. ..........BACK TO WAKABA TOWN However, once you step out of the house, Utsugi will call you, telling you that there is trouble and that you should return immediately. Return to Yoshino City and use the Pokemon Center. Just before you leave town, you will encounter a young man who uses one of the Pokemon that you could have chosen in the beginning. You should be at a high enough level that it will be an easy fight, even though you are weak against that he has chosen. Heal at the Pokemon Center if you need to, then go to Utsugi's Lab. The police will be there, and you will have to name the young man that you fought. He will then be your rival for the remainder of the game. He will marvel at the Egg that you were give, and will take it for a time to study. Just as you are about to leave, Utsugi's Assistant will give you 5 Poke Balls. The first man that you see outside of Wakaba Town will instruct you on how to use the Poke Balls. Say "no" to his question. ..........KIKYOU CITY AND THE WING BADGE At this point, you may want to catch some Pokemon to add to your team. A good choice to catch would be Otachi (the flying racoon; can only be caught during the day). It can learn Cut, and strangely enough, Surf! Another good one is Pidgey, which can learn Fly. And while you're at it, pick up a Geodude if you want (in the area where I said don't bother to go because you couldn't get very far) to learn Strength. Keep at least one slot open in your party! I'll tell you why later. Make your way to Kikyou City. Then beat Hayato at the Gym. The Gym Members and Leader use bird-type Pokemon, and should be relatively easy if you built up your levels. Defeat Hayato to get the "Wing Badge". It increases the Attack of all of your Pokemon, plus allows you to use Flash at any time. He also gives you TM 31 "Sand Hell". It's basically a high-damaging "Sand Attack". Utsugi will call after you exit the Gym. Your egg is now ready. Go to the Pokemon Center, and Utsugi's Assistant will be there. Answer "yes" to his question, and you'll be given your egg back, but this time will be in your party. It can not attack, etc., but will hatch in some time, into Togepi! Now, go to the northern part of town to the Bellsprout Temple. Battle your way to the top, and defeat the temple master for the Flash HM. ..........HIWADA TOWN AND THE INSECT BADGE Now, go south through the cave to Hiwada Town (if you try going west, you will be blocked by some sort of tree). Go into the Pokemon Center, and talk to the fisherman to get the Fishing Pole. Talk to Gantetsu, the Pokemon Ball maker at the northern end of town, and he'll ask you to save the Slowpokes that are being held captive. He'll then leave the house. Now go to the front of the town and into the hole that a man was previously blocking. Gantestu will be there. Defeat all of the Team Rocket members, and Gantestu will be grateful. He'll give you a "Lure Ball". No go to the Gym, and defeat the leader for the "Insect Badge". It allows you to control Pokemon up to level 30, and enables you to use Cut. She also gives you TM 49 "Renzokugeri". A good slash attack that she used on you earlier. Heal at the Pokemon Center, then go west through the gate. Just as you are about to, your rival appears again. This battle is a little tougher, but shouldn't be too difficult if you have built up your Pokemon. ..........KOGANE CITY AND THE REGULAR BADGE Go through the forest, and play a game of "Catch the Farfetch'd" to get the Cut HM from the grateful man. Cut your way north, and into Kogane City. Explore the town, but don't go into the Gym yet. You should be able to find a Coin Case in an underground tunnel (you won't be able to go into the door yet), a Bicycle in the Miracle Bike Shop. Go to the Radio Tower (the large building to the west end of town), and talk to the woman at the right end of the counter). Answer her questions correctly, and she'll give you the Radio Card. You'll be able to access the Radio from your PokeGear. You can go to the Gym now, if you want. HOWEVER, you may want to build each of your Pokemon up to at least 25. Yes, 25. This is because the gym leader, Akane, uses a Pokemon called "Mirutank". The "tank" part is correct, because it has massive HP, and can wipe down lower Pokemon easily. Now only that, it has an attack called "Mellow Mellow" that charms your Pokemon into not attacking, if it is the opposite gender of Mirutank. If this isn't bad enough, it has a some Milk equipped, so when you reduce its HP down, it automatically heals! This will be one of the most difficult battles that you will face up to now. You will get the "Regular Badge" for winning. At first, she won't give it to you, but one of the club members will coax it out of her. Talk to her again and you'll get the badge. It allows you to use Strength. She also gives you TM 45 "Mellow Mellow". ..........ENJU CITY AND THE PHANTOM BADGE Exit the Gym, and go to the house on the right, and on top. Talk to the lady next to the flowers, and she'll give you some Squirtle Liquid. Go north through the gate, and all of the way around until you get to some sort of tree. If you have the Squirtle Liquid, examine it, then answer "yes". (Normally, it you examined it, it would simply shake). It will then turn intoa Pokemon and attack you, Usokii. You can catch it if you want; it may be a good time to use that Lure Ball, if you really want to. But before you do, walk a little bit to the right, and encounter the pudgy man. Defeat him, and he'll give you "TM 08". You need this to destroy the broken rocks that you encounter within the game! Now into Enju City. You will encounter, but not fight, your rival at the Pokemon Center. Go to the house to the left of the Pokemon Center, and answer "yes" to get an Item Finder. Now go to the house north of the Pokemon Center that has dancing girls. Defeat all of the girls (they are using Eevee evolutions, including the two new ones), and talk to the Gentleman in the room. He'll give you the Surf HM. Now you can go to the Gym and defeat the leader (who uses Ghost Pokemon) for the Phantom Badge. It allows you to control Pokemon up to level 50, and enables you to use Surf. He also gives you TM 30 "Shadow Ball". Go to the smaller temple in the upper-left portion of town. You will encounter your rival in there. Break the rocks and walk around until the is a pit to fall down. Walk to the stairs, and the three Pokemon that are there will jump away. ..........ASAGI CITY Go west to Asagi City. You can stop by the Mirutank Farm if you want. One of the Mirutank is sick. Feed it around eight to ten Spirit Fruits and it will get better. Then you can talk to the mother in the house, and she will give you a TM. Plus, you can buy milk from the father, which heals a substantial amount of HP. You don't have to complete this little side-quest if you don't want to. In Asagi City, you will notice that the Gym is empty. Climb the Lighthouse (the large building), and talk to Mikan at the top. Her Pokemon is sick, and you will need medicine. Exit the lighthouse, and go to the last house just before the beach. Talk to the sailor to get the Strength HM. ..........TABAN CITY AND THE SHOCK BADGE Now, Surf over to Taban City (the city over the sea), and defeat the Gym Leader to get the Shock Badge. It will allow you to control Pokemon up to level 70. He also gives you TM 01 "Explosive Punch". Talk to the woman just outside of the Gym to get the Fly HM. Go into the VERY last house at the bottom of Taban City and talk to the man. He will give you some Medicine. ..........BACK TO ASAGI CITY AND THE STEEL BADGE Now, go back to Asagi City and climb the Lighthouse again. Talk to Mikan, and then she will go down to the Gym. Defeat her for the Steel Badge. It increases your Pokemon's Defense. She also gives you TM 23 "Iron Tail", for that massive attack that she uses. ..........CHOJU TOWN AND THE ICE BADGE Go west from Enju City to Choju Town. There is a man blocking the Gym door, so you can't go in just yet. Go north, and defeat/capture the Red Gyarados. Once you do, look for the sign in the same area. Wataru [Lance] will be looking at the sign. Talk to him, and he will disappear. Go back down to Choju Town, and enter the Shop. Lance will be there, and will show the way into a Team Rocket HQ. Go into the HQ. Defeat the Researcher at the computer, and examine the computer to turn on a switch. On the next floor, you will meet Lance again. He will also heal your Pokemon. Defeat all of the Team Rocket members on the remaining floors to get passwords. (Don't worry, you don't have to write them down or anything). Those passwords will allow you to open up the gates. Enter the boss' room at the top, and defeat him. Talk to the bird to get the final password. Go back down to the floor that had the large machine on it, behind a gate. Defeat the Team Rocket members with Lance's help, then go into the Generator Room. Defeat the three Electrodes on your side (the left one). Lance will then give you HM 06 "Whirlpool". This HM is used to fill in whirlpools. Once outside, you will see that the man is no longer in front of the Gym. You can now enter and defeat him for the Ice Badge, and TM 16 "Numbing Wind". ..........KOGANE CITY AND THE RADIO TOWER At this point, since you will have seven badges, you will get a call from Professor Utsugi. There is trouble at the Radio Tower in Kogane City. Enter the Radio Tower and defeat all of the Team Rocket members. There will be a gate on one of the floors. Ignore it for now, and go up to defeat the boss at the top. You will then get a key. Exit the Radio Tower, and go just north of it to the Underground Passage (the place where you got the coin case). Unlock the door, and go in. Your rival will then enter and attack you. Get the card key from the Gentleman that is trapped on one of the floors. He will give you a card key. Enter the elevator, to find that you'll end up in the Shop. Reenter the Radio Tower, and go through the gate that was previously locked. Defeat the remaining Rockets, and you're set. ..........FUSUBE CITY AND THE RAGING BADGE Now that Team Rocket's taken care of, go back to Choju City, and east to Fusube City through a cave. HM 07 "Waterfall" is in this cave (in an item ball), and you need it! Defeat Ibuki at the Gym, but she won't give you your badge yet. Surf on the area behind the Gym, and through the cave. Find the item ball with the feather in it, and Ibuki will show up. She will then give you your Raging Badge. It allows you control all Pokemon. She also hands you TM 24 (Dragon Blizzard). ..........PREPARING FOR THE POKEMON LEAGUE After getting the badge and exiting the cave, Utsugi will give you a call. Go to him, and he will give you the infamous Master Ball. Now that you have all eight badges, you can go to the Pokemon League. Access it from Wakaba Town (the first town). Surf to the right, and a man will give you a ne Map Card (to see the second map). However, you may need some firepower. You should start your quest for one of the new Legendary Birds. If you are playing Gold, you can get Houou first; if Silver, you can get Lugia first. Whichever one it is, it will be at level 30. ..........HOUOU AND LUGIA Houou is in the Legendary Temple. Go back to Enju City, and into the double-space house that has a door in it. Follow it around until you get to a temple. Ascend to the top, and Houou will be there. Lugia, on the other hand, is in the set of caves to the west of Taban City (the network of caves that will remind you of Seafoam Islands). Go into the middle-right cave. You will be nearing Lugia's area if you go down a waterfall. Enter the cave, and Lugia will be there. ..........TO THE POKEMON LEAGUE Back on the track of the Pokemon League. Once you have gotten the second map from the man, do into the cave, and all of the way through. Prepare for a LONG walk up to the League. Go through the very last cave (it's not very long), and your rival will confront you for the last time at the end. Defeat him and enter the Pokemon League. Defeat the Elite Four: Itsuki (Psychic), Kyou [Koga] (Poison), Batsu [Bruno] (Fighting), Karin (Miscellaneous), and finally defeat the current Champion, Wataru [Lance] (Dragon). ----------| THE SECOND QUEST Well, you finished the first game . . . You did know that there is a SECOND game, didn't you? ..........KUCHIBA CITY AND THE ORANGE BADGE Continue after the game rolls the credits and shows the title. Utsugi will call you. Go to him, and get a Boat Ticket. Go to Asagi City and down the pathway until you get the boat. Enter it, and go to your room (the one with the sailor standing in front of it). Heal if you need to. Enter all of the rooms, and talk to the Gentleman in one of them. His daughter is missing. Go up the stairs and talk to the sailor that won't let you through. Go back down to the room to the right of yours, and defeat the sailor. Go back up, and defeat the passengers and sailors on that floor. Ascend the stairs, and talk to the little girl who is talking to the captain. You will both be warped back to her cabin. At this time, you should be at your destination: Kuchiba City! Go to the Gym and defeat Machisu [Lt. Surge] for the Orange Badge. It increases the Speed of your Pokemon. ..........YAMABUKI CITY AND THE GOLD BADGE Go north to Yamabuki City and defeat Natsume [Sabrina] for the Gold Badge. Now go east to the town, and into the Radio Station there. Talk to the men, then exit. Go north from that town, and around, surf down until you get to the Power Station. Talk to the man in the Generator Room, and then leave. ..........HANADA CITY AND THE BLUE BADGE Return to Yamabuki City, and go north to Hanada City. Enter the Gym. A Team Rocket member will bump into you, then will leave. The Gym is empty. Exit the Gym, and go north up the trail, where you will find the Rocket. Defeat him, and he will tell you about an item that he hid in the Gym. This item is the component that they are missing from the Power Station. Go back to the Gym, and to the little pool in the middle of the Gym. Examine the upper-left corner of the little pool for the item. Go north again, and fight through the string of Trainers. You should then see a young lady. Talk to her, and she will go back to the Hanada City Gym. Return to the Gym and defeat her (Kasumi [Misty]) for the Blue Badge. Return to the Power Station and give the item to the man. He will give you a TM in return. Now, go back to the town on the second map with the Radio Tower. Talk to the Gentleman, and he will give you a Radio Upgrade. Go to Kuchiba City, and into the Pokemon Fan Club. Talk to the plump man at the table, and he will give you a Clefairy Doll. Go back to Yamabuki City, and into the Copycat's house. Go up the stairs and talk to her. She will give you the Linear Motorcar Ticket. You can now go back and forth between the maps MUCH more easily. ..........TAMAMUSHI CITY AND THE RAINBOW BADGE Go back to Yamabuki City and go to the west, to Tamamushi City. Defeat Erika [Erica] at the Gym for the Rainbow Badge, and TM 16 "Giga Drain". ..........SEKICHIKU CITY AND THE PINK BADGE Go west down Cycling Road to Sekichiku City. Enter the Gym and defeat Anju. She is the girl that is on the lower left. She will give you the Pink Badge. ..........NIVI CITY AND THE GREY BADGE Return to Kuchiba City, and up to the Snorlax. Enter your Radio Screen, and go to the last tuneable station (the one with nothing but music). Exit the menus, and then examine the Snorlax. It will wake up and attack you. Once the Snorlax is dealt with, go through Diglett's Cave, and emerge near Nivi City. Go to Nivi City, and defeat Takeshi [Brock] at the Gym for the Grey Badge. There is also a Trainer's House in this town. You can go into the basement to fight a high-level trainer. You can only do this one per day, though. You can also go right to go to Mt. Moon (a VERY short cave). You will fight your rival for the very last time here. At the top is a shop (people are only in it during the day), and an open field. ..........TOKIWA CITY AND MASARA TOWN Now, do south to Tokiwa City. The Gym is empty (sense a pattern here?). Go south to Masara Town, and talk to Professor Oak. Surf south from Masara Town, to a little island. There will be a person examining a rock. Talk to him, and he will leave. ..........GUREN TOWN AND THE CREME BADGE Surf to the right, to a little cave. This is the Guren Town Gym. Defeat Katsura [Blaine] there, and get the Creme Badge. ..........TOKIWA CITY AND THE GREEN BADGE Return to Tokiwa City, and defeat Green [Gary] there for the Green Badge. Now you have ALL sixteen badges! Good news. Now you can go back and get the OTHER new Legendary Bird. Go talk to everyone in Nivi City again. One of them will give you another feather. This will allow you to go to the other location to grab the other Legendary Bird. However, this other bird will be at level 70! Want a good way to capture it? Run it out of attacks. ..........SHIROGANE MOUNTAIN But there's a little more. Go back to Masara Town, and talk to Professor Oak. He will tell you about Shirogane Mountain, which has some strong Pokemon. Return to Tokiwa City (again), and go west. Go through the small cave to emerge by some grasslands. WARNING: This area contains some of the most powerful wild Pokemon in the game, with levels of 40 or greater. This is a good place to build up levels. Good thing there is a Pokemon Center there. What's more, you can fly to the Pokemon Center here from the locations on the first map. ..........RED [ASH] But there is also a cave. Go through it (it isn't very difficult), to find someone at the end. This is Red [Ash]. He has the MOST POWERFUL POKEMON IN THE GAME! Here's how I beat him. I used by three main Pokemon: Houou (level 60), Red Gyarados (level 59), and Meganiumu (level 61). I also brought along five Revives, twenty-five super potions, and twenty Full-Heals. My other three Pokemon were "cannon fodder", and were used as a one turn rest while I used a Super Potion on one of the three main Pokemon. You'll probably have an easier time if your Pokemon have higher levels. First up is his Pikachu (level 81!). I used Houou. It took one Fire Blast to knock it out. Second is his Blastoise (level 77). I switched to Meganiumu. If you're lucky, he'll use Acid Rain or another minor attack. I used Solar Beam once, and Razor Leaf after that. Once again, if you're lucky, he won't use Blizzard (which Mega is weak against). Third is his Venusaur (level 77). I switched back to Houou, and used Holy Fire once, then Gust (Venusaur was weak against both). Fourth is Eefi (level 77). It will most likely use "Reflector" (reduces special attack damage by one-half). I switched to Houou and used Fire Blast twice. You may need to heal, since it likes to use Psychic. Fifth is the most difficult one, Snorlax (level 77). I beat this Snorlax by running it out of attacks. Try to get an attack or two to make it go to sleep (it will heal itself). Fire Blast and Holy Fire do next to nothing. Gust is better to use, and you'll want to save some Fire attacks. Use Super Potions or Houou's Recover until the Snorlax no longer has anything else to use except Amnesia. Then Gust it into oblivion, since things like Fire Blast did VERY little damage. Watch out for its Body Slams, as it will Paralyze your Pokemon. This will allow Snorlax to attack first in subsequent turns. If Snorlax is asleep, use some healing items on your other Pokemon. Sixth is Charizard. I pulled out Gyarados, and used "Waterfall" on it three times and it fell. If I had Hydro Pump, I would have used that. Once you defeat Red, the credits will roll once again, and you will immediately be taken to the Pokemon Center in front of Shirogane Mountain. If you go back in, Red is no longer there. The game is not saved, so you can reset and continue, and leave Red alone so you can show your friends at a later date! ----------| POKEMON BREEDING Pokemon Breeding is a way to increase your stockpile of Pokemon. However, it is the ONLY way to get the much sought- after "pre- evolutions" of certain Pokemon. Take two Pokemon of the same type, and of different genders to the house to the south of Kogane City. Here, you will find two people. Give the male Pokemon to the old man, and the female Pokemon to the old woman. Now, go out and explore, fight, walk around, etc. After about half an hour to an hour, return to this house. If done correctly, you should see the old man in the "pen" where the two Pokemon are. He has an egg for you. Make sure you have an open slot in your party! There is a computer in the house, where you can make room. Go and talk to the old man to get the egg. You can then get your Pokemon back by paying a certain amount of money. Certain Pokemon have "pre-evolutions", and hatch in the normal way (after an hour or so). Only certain Pokemon have pre- evolutions: Purin [Jigglypuff] -> Pupurin Pippi [Clefairy] -> Pii Erebuu [Electabuzz] -> Erekkido Pikachu -> Pichu Buubaa [Magmar] -> Buubii Rujura [Jynx] -> (don't have the name right off hand) To my current knowledge, I do not know if keeping two Pokemon of the same type of different genders in your party will eventually give you an egg. If it does, you will most-likely need a space in your party. ----------| AREF'S MONUMENT If you've been to the "pyramid" with the strange writing on the walls, chances are that you've encountered the "Annoon" Pokemon. They are the same Pokemon with more than one "shape". (If you actually use one, they never evolve, and never learn more than one move, called "Awakening Power"). The goal of this area is to catch all twenty-six different shapes of this Pokemon. After catching two different types, exit the monument, and a scientist will be outside. Talk to him, and he will take you into the small lab to get your Pokedex upgrade to view the Annoon that you have already captured. To view this upgrade, go into your Pokedex, and hit 'Select'. It should be the next to last option there. At first, you will only be able to catch a few of them. This is solved by completing the puzzles that are around. You should be able to immediately find and solve the "Kabuto" and "Aerodactyl" puzzles. For the other two, exit the area to the right, then go south into the cave that leads to the "Slowpoke" town. You will need "Surf" to get to the other ladders in the cave. These ladders (after a little exploring) will lead to the other two puzzles: "Omanyte" and "Moltres". What do these puzzles do? Once you solve them, they "unlock" another set of Annoon Pokemon for you to capture. Once you have all twenty-six of the Annoon Pokemon, go into the small lab, and you can use the small machine in the upper-right corner of the room. It allows you to print out the Annoon as stickers through your Pocket Printer. Oh, and if you didn't figure it out yet, each of the Annoon Pokemon represent a letter in the English alphabet. ----------| THE THREE LEGENDARY DOGS In the "Ghost" city, if you go into the temple in th upper-left of the city, and smash the blocks, eventually you will fall into an area that has three Pokemon sitting in an area. Once you step onto the stairs, they will jump away, leaving the temple. These are the three Legendary Dogs. My comment to you? Good luck trying to catch them. Each of the Dogs appears in a COMPLETELY RANDOM place each time that you go into a new area (usually a town). So, one time it could be on the left end of the map, and then next time it will be on the right. So, you'll have to walk around until you see it for the first time. The good news? The location is in your Pokedex. So, just go in and out of a town's location, and check your Pokedex each time to see if they're near your location. The bad news? They're near impossible to catch.
