    tips for catching pokmon

    1

    2

    reduce Hp

    A Pokmons HP is a measure of how tired it is. Once HP reaches zero, that Pokmon faints. When you try to catch a Pokmon, use moves to attack and lower HP as much as possible without making it faint. When the HP bar is red, it means that Pokmon is weak. Try throwing a Pok Ball!

    Some Pokmon moves inflict status conditions on their targets (p. 32). A Pokmon saddled with a status condition, such as Poison or Paralysis, is easier to catch. Of the six status conditions, Sleep and Frozen are the most effective. Lower the target's HP and use status conditions to maximize your chances of success.

    3

    From the basic model to the Luxury Ball and Master Ball, there are 14 different kinds of Pok Balls, each specialized for a certain use. Always use a Pok Ball that's effective for the kind of Pokmon you want to catchit's a basic Pokmon-catching principle.

    Use the right pok Ball

    inflict status conditions

    Wild Double Battles in the dark grass

    Starting with route 3, you'll notice some dark grass here and there. in these areas, two wild pokmon can attack you at once. if you want to catch one of them, you have to defeat the other first.

    You can't catch wild Pokmon without a Pok Ball. Even if you have one, Pokmon won't just hop into a Pok Ball. They can be hard to catch unless you tire them out first. Try these three tips!

    Lowering a wild Pokmon's HP and using status conditions make it easier to catch Pokmon. A Watchog that knows Super Fang or Hypnosis can come in handy!

    WatchogCatch a patrat on route 1 and raise it to Lv. 20 to evolve into Watchog. Watchog will learn mean Look at Lv. 36.

    How to teach new moves to pokmon

    Pokmon can learn various moves at predetermined levels. Once they reach a certain level, they can learn the appropriate move.

    Level them up

    Each HM (Hidden Machine) is programmed with a special move (p. 27). An HM can teach that move to an unlimited number of Pokmon.

    Use an Hm

    A TM (Technical Machine) can teach a certain move to an unlimited number of Pokmon. You can use the same TM again and again on different Pokmon.

    Use a tm

    During your travels, you'll meet people who can teach moves to Pokmon. There are seven moves that can be learned this way.

    Have an expert teach them

    Each Pokmon species has various Abilities. For instance, Patrat can have the Run Away or Keen Eye Ability. Some Abilities take effect during battle, while other Abilities come in handy as you explore the region.

    examples of abilities and their effects

    items obtained with the pickup ability

    triggered abilitiesare visible

    May pick up an item while it's in your party. The Pokmon's level determines what items you're likely to find.

    When its HP is full, it'll retain 1 HP if hit by a move that would knock it out.

    Moves will have no additional effects (such as stat changes), but the power of those moves will increase by 30%.

    Friendship is the bond of affection and trust that can grow between a Pokmon and its Trainer. Keep a Pokmon happy and it will grow to like you, but a mistreated Pokmon will take a real dislike to you.

    medicinal herbs

    teach a new move with tm

    If you use items during battles such as X Attack and X Accuracy, your friendship will go up.

    Pokmon can be classified into 17 types, such as Normal, Fire, Water, or Grass. The matchups between these types are a key factor in determining a battle's outcome.

    Types interact like a big game of rock-paper-scissors. For instance, Water is strong against Fire, but weak against Grass. If the attacking Pokmon's move type is strong against the defending Pokmon's type, the move does increased damage.

    Under the right conditions, your moves will do at least 50% more damage than usual. If you can keep dishing out that kind of damage, victory is sure to be within your reach. Several factors determine these increases in attack damage, but the three major ones are listed below.

    How to increase damage

    good type matchups mean increased damage!

    Bad type matchups mean reduced damage...Battle messages describe damage range

    Damage

    150%When a pokmon uses moves of its own type, those moves inflict 50% more damage.

    the three kinds of moves

    Moves belong to one of three kindsphysical, special, or status. There's an important connection between these kinds of moves and a Pokmon's stats. For instance, a Pokmon with high Attack will do the most damage if it uses physical moves.

    physical

    Physical moves are ones like Retaliate and Low Sweep. Most of these moves make direct contact with the opponent.

    Pokmon can be affected by status conditions such as Sleep, Poison, or Paralysis. These conditions can immobilize a Pokmon or eat away at its HP. Hit the other Pokmon with moves that inflict status conditions, and you'll turn the tide of battle.

    Status conditions cause physical changes

    overall strength is the product of six stats

    the six statsEach Pokmon's overall strength depends on individual statistics, such as Attack or Defense. Six different stats indicate a Pokmon's proficiency in different areas. To raise a strong Pokmon, you'll need to understand how each stat works.

    Sp. attack

    Stats affecting special moves

    Sp. Defense

    The higher this stat is, the more damage the Pokmon does with special moves.

    The higher this stat is, the less damage the Pokmon takes from special moves.

    SpeedThe Pokmon's attack speed. The higher the number, the more likely the Pokmon will strike first.

    HpThe Pokmon's health. If attacks reduce its HP to 0, the Pokmon faints.

    Defense

    The higher this stat is, the less damage the Pokmon takes from physical moves.

    Stats also affect the three kinds of moves

    Special

    Special moves are ones like Scald and Incinerate. Most of these moves don't bring the user into direct contact with the target.

    Status

    Moves like the weather-changing Rain Dance or moves that alter a user's or target's stats are considered status moves.

    Use status conditions to gain an advantage

    Hail

    When the weather condition is Hail, each pokmon takes damage every turn except ice-type pokmon.

    rain

    When the weather condition is rain, the power of Water-type moves goes up and the power of fire-type moves goes down.

    SandstormWhen the weather condition is Sandstorm, each pokmon takes damage every turn except ground-, rock-, and Steel-type pokmon.

    Sunny

    When the weather is Sunny, the power of fire-type moves goes up and the power of Water-type moves goes down.

    Every Pokmon type has its weaknesses. If you fill your team with just one type, then it only takes one supereffective move type to put your entire party at risk. Instead, try building a team with Pokmon whose strengths and weaknesses cover for each other, allowing you to take on any Pokmon you encounter.

    Snivy is weak against Fire-type moves. That's why you want Panpour, a Pokmon who's strong against Fire-type Pokmon. However, Panpour is weak against Electric-type Pokmon, so add Sandile for its advantage over Electric types. Water types that have the upper hand against Sandile are at a disadvantage against Snivy.

    pansage, pansear, and panpour can be quite helpfulThe Pansage, Pansear, or Panpour you receive in the Dreamyard can be quite a helpful addition to your party. It would be a waste to stop training them after your Striaton City Gym battle. These three evolve with special stones, but they won't learn moves by leveling up once they are evolved. You should let them learn useful moves before they evolve.

    adventure info

    These moves are especially useful for Pansage. Leech Seed is a move that plants a seed on the target to steal some HP every turn. SolarBeam is another move to turn to, as it is one of the strongest Grass-type moves. Its power is as high as 120.
