Alternate Pokemon Colors Did you know that there are Pokemon hidden in Gold/Silver that have alternate colors, aka shiny status? There is no easy way to find them (except for the Red Gyarados in the Lake of Rage) as they appear at random -- but they're out there. If you see specially colored Pokemon, be sure to catch them as they are very rare. You can recognize them by the sparkle effect when they appear in battle, or by checking on the Pokemon Status Screen. Next to the Male/Female symbol, these special Pokemon are marked with three dots.
There are any number of these rare types, including alternate versions of Nidoking (dark blue), Golbat (purple/green), Tentacruel (green eyes), Rapidash (purple), Scyther (orange/green), Hoothoot (yellow/purple), Sudowoodu (green/red), Ho-oh (yellow/orange), and more.
Breeding Evolutions At the Daycare Center south of Goldenrod City on Route 33, you can give a male Pokemon and a female Pokemon to the keepers to breed new Pokemon.
Breed two Pikachus to get Pichu.
Breed two Electabuzzes and you get Elekid.
Breed two Clefairies and you get Cleffa.
Breed two Jigglypuffs and you get Igglybuff.
Breed two Magmars and you get Magby.
Breed a Venonat with a Pinsir to get Pinsir.
Breed a Hitmonchan or Hitmonlee with a Ditto to get Tyrogue.
Breed a Clefairy with a Snubbull to get another Snubbul.
Breed a Gyarados with the Red Gyarados to get a golden Magikarp.
Replace any of the Pokemon with the genderless Ditto if you've only got one of a kind. Ditto will act as a wildcard Pokemon.
Duplicate Items/Clone Pokemon Go to a PC, and save. Attach the item you want to duplicate to the Pokemon you want to clone. Deposit it into the PC. Change boxes. When the screen is saying "Saving the game..." Turn off your GB. Turn it back on. You should have the deposited Pokemon in the PC, and a clone of it in your lineup. The item will either be on both monsters, or in your Backpack. Note: while doing this code, DO NOT withdraw any Pokemon. When the GB is turned back on, you'll find that the withdrawn Pokemon has been deleted. Note: You can duplicate up to 5 items/Pokemon at a time.
Set Your Clock For Daylight-Savings Return to your house and talk to your mother. She will ask you if you want to set your clock to Daylight-Savings time.
Special Poke Balls You can give Apricorns to the Poke Ball maker in Azalea Town to get new types of Poke Balls. Here is a list of what they're good for.
White Apricorn: Fast Ball -- Good for catching Pokemon that try to escape from battle quickly.
Red Apricorn: Level Ball -- If your Pokemon's level is significantly higher than the wild Pokemon's, it will be an easy catch.
Blue Apricorn: Lure Ball -- Good for catching Water types when fishing.
Pink Apricorn: Love Ball -- If the wild Pokemon's gender is opposite that of your Pokemon's you'll have an easier catch.
Black Apricorn: Heavy Ball -- Big enough to catch heavy Pokemon like Snorlax.
Green Apricorn: Friend Ball -- Pokemon caught with Friend Balls will become very attached to their trainer. Good for Chansey (if you want it to evolve into Blissey).
Yellow Apricorn:Moon Ball -- Good for catching Pokemon that evolve with Moon Stones, like Clefairy and Jigglypuff.

Metal CoatFirst you need to beat the pokemon league. then Prof. Elm will call you and tell you that he has a suprise for you. Go him to get the S.S. Anne ticket to get on the S.S. Aqua. Get on the ship, walk down a couple of steps. Then this man will bump into you and he will say that he lost his granddaughter. He will ask you if you could help him find her. Then go to the right, then down, and go down or up the step. Walk up and this man will block you from going to the captain's room. He will ask you to find somebody that works with him. The man is in the room right next your room where you can revive you pokemon. Then he wants to batlle you. Defeat him and go back to the man blocked you from going to the captain's room. He will let you by so you can go to the room. When you get to the room, there is the captian and a girl. The girl is the old mans grandchild. Talk to her and she will go back to her grandfather. There room is in the bottom right house all the way to the right. Talk to the old man and he will say thanks for finding his grandchild and he will give you a silver caot. The only two pokemon that can use the coat is Scyther and Onix.
Hints and TipsDay-Care Copying
There is an easier (but time-wasting) way to copy Pokemon. For example, for two Typhlosions, breed a Cindaquil with Ditto. When the egg hatches, you will get a Cindaquil. Train both to Level 32 and they will evolve into Typhlosion.
Hint on Starting Pokemon
Chikorita: A Grass-type Pokemon with girlish looks, Chikorita is the most challenging of the three starting Pokemon. It's not particulary strong against any of the Pokemon you'll encounter in the first part of the game (in fact, it's extremely weak against most of the Gym Pokemon!), so you must spend a lot of time leveling it up and building a team of support Pokemon. Chikorita is recommended for experienced Pokemon Trainers or players who want an extra challenge.
Totodile: This Water-type Pokemon is a good, all-around choice for a starting Pokemon. It's greatest strengh lies in its flexibility. Of the three starting Pokemon, it can use the most HMs and has no weaknesses against the Pokemon you encounter in the beginning of the game. This is a great starting Pokemon for any player.
Cindaquil: Known for its fiery quills, this Fire-type is the strongest of the three starting Pokemon. In fact, you can make it through most of the game on the strengh of his Pokemon alone. (It's final form, Typhlosion, is extremely powerful!) Choose Cindaquil if you're playing the Silver version and your Typhlosion and Lugia will take out the Elite Four easily! Cindaquil is the best choice for new players and those who want to speed through the game.
A Psychic Pokemon that knows Dark moves
Train your Eevee to level 30. Make sure you don't make it evolve. At level 30 it learns Bite. Then train it good and make sure it evolves before it grows to level 36. It will evolve into Espeon and learn Psybeam. Ta-da! You have a Psychic Pokemon that knows Dark moves!!!
Easy way to take out Lance
If you chose Totodile at the start of the game, use it against Lance. Make sure it knows Ice Punch. Use Ice Punch to knock Lance's Pokemon down one by one. Dragonite and Aerodactyl are the ones most affected. Use a Raichu or Ampharaos to take out Gyarados. You thought it was Dragon/flying? Nope It's WATER/Flying.
Battle the guard near Daycare Center
At night, talk to the guard near the Daycare Center. He might battle you, but he has a Level 17 Growlithe that you might take out easily. His name is Officer Keith.

Get Two Master BallsYou can get two Master balls in the game. One Master ball you get from Professor Elm when you get all the badges.

Go down the waterfall. Go to the land on the left and go through the door. Go through another door and you will find Lugia in the water. WARNING there is only one Lugia! I caught Lugia with a masterball. After you have caught Lugia go back out to where the waterfall is and surf down and then to the right and you will find land go up the ladder and follow the path and you should find the exit to the cave.
Change time on game and Duplicate pokemonChoose save, and when it says "SAVING, DON' T TURN OFF THE POWER" turn it off. Turn it on again, and you will be asked what the password is, the password is your trainer ID.
To duplicate your pokemon, put into your pc, then choose change box. When it says "SAVING, DON' T TURN OFF THE POWER" turn it off, when you turn it on, you will have two off that pokemon. If it was holding an item, the item will also be cloned.

1D: Nidoran Female
20: Nidoran Male
7A: Mr. Mime
Wild SuicuneAt night go to route 31. In the building seperating Violet city and Route 31, go right. Once your out of the building, go to the grass patch just below the building. If you keep walking around, you should find a Suicune!
Surfing PikachuThere is a way to get the surfing Pikachu, find a smergle and use surf then it should use scktch and it will turn into surf, catch it. Then catch a pikachu,bring them both to the day care center come back to get a egg, it hatches into a Pichu that knows surf!! Note:Smeargle shoud be male and Pikachu shoud be female.
Easy rare dogsThe easy way to get Raikou, Entei, and Suicune is to capture or raise a pokemon to learn the move "meanlook" hunt down which ever rare dog you want, have the pokemon that knows "meanlook" in the front of the party. When you find the rare dog of your choice you need to use "meanlook" so then it can't flee. Bring lots of ultra balls or simply a master ball.
Normal-Type pokemon with Ghost Type movesFirst, get an Eevee from Bill's house in Goldenrod city. Next, capture a Ditto in the grass South of Goldenrod city. After that, evolve the Eevee into an Espion (i.e, by making it happy in the morning or day and then making it grow a level) and teach it TM Shadow Ball (get it by defeating Gym Leader Morty). Now train the Ditto up to around about the same level as the Espion and put them both into Pokemon Day-Care. Wait for the old man to give you an egg (check the day-care centre as much as you can) and wait for it to hatch. The egg will hatch into an Eevee that should know Shadow Ball (A Ghost-Type attack). Now you can use a ghost attack against most enimes and most enimes won't be able to use ghost attacks against you!
CelebiMy Celebi is now at level 74. This is truly how you get it. What you do is defeat the Elite Four. Then trade an Ivysaur (MUST be an Ivysaur) that knows Cut from your Red/Blue game. Go to the shrine in Ilex Forest. Use Cut on the shrine. Then put Lugia at the front of your party ( it doesn't matter what level it is). Use Lugia's Fly to Fly to Mahogany Town. When you have done that, go to the Karate King in Mt. Mortar. Beat him and get Tyrogue. Evolve it into a Hitmontop. Breed Hitmontop with a Ditto and the result will be Tyrogue. Take this one to the shrine (with Lugia at the front remember) and use Cut again. Celebi comes floating out. It is at level 10 when you catch it and it isn't particularly difficult to catch.
Rainbow/Silver WingAfter defeating Team Rocket's attack on the radio station (deppending on wether your game is gold or silver) the manager will give you a rainbow/silver wing but where is the other one you ask? Well in the province of Kanto, Pewter City an old man standing next to the Mart will be there talk to him he will ramble on for a few seconds and eventually give you the other rainbow/silver wing.
Silver: Getting past the switchesWhen team rocket has taken over radio tower and you have to get past the switches, switch them all off. Then switch number 3 on then 2 on then 1 on and it should leave a path for you to get through.
The Easiest way to catch Entei, Suicune & RaikouCatch a Gastly in 'Bellsprout Tower' train it untill it evolves into Haunter. Then train Haunter until He/She learns these attacks; Mean Look, Hypnosis, Lick & Night Shade. Now when you encounter Entei, Suicune and/or Raikou, no matter what level your haunter is always use Hypnosis, then Mean look. Then weaken it until it is almost knocked out. Put it to sleep again (unless it's already asleep) go mad throwing Ultraballs, Greatballs and any balls you have in your pack until you catch it. When the ball appears after you have thrown it Hold B+Up. keep doing this until you cat it/them.
A few hintsTo get eggs from the daycare centre without hving to hunt down same type opposite genders. Just find a Ditto and leave it in the daycare centre with any pokemon male or female and they will have an egg after a quick round at indigo platau.
(this definitly works with female pokemon and I am sure it works with males) (I think it works with lugia and Ho-oh too)
to find the 3 dogs easily all you need do is search everywhere until you encounter one if it gets away its position will appear in your pokedex under area. when you manage to get there use attract and it will be easier to find.
(it frequently moves so keep checking your pokedex)
Silver: Get AerodactylYou only have 1 chance to get Aerodactyl: you need to get a Chansey, which is found on Routes 14, 15 and 16, and trade with a girl in the big patch of grass on Route 14. You will recieve Aerodactyl.
Silver: Element stonesIn Cerulean Cape, bills dad will ask you to show him a pokemon. He will give you an element stone. You show him in this order:
1 lickitung - everstone
2 oddish - leaf stone
3 staryu - water stone
4 vulpix - fire stone
5 pichu - thunderstone

Silver: The second metal coatIn the kanto region,( after fighting all the 8 gym leaders in Jotho) in the power plant, go inside, talk to a man that asks you to trade his magneton for your dugtrio. The fastest way to get dugtrio is to catch a diglett in the digett's cave. Then train that digett till level 26 ( best way: fight elite four, as your diglett is from level 2-8) Then go back to the power plant, and trade with that man.If you look in the stats of that magneton, the item, it is holding a metal coat( maybe it depends, I am not sure, but I got it)
