No, but Shuckle can turn a Berry into Berry Juice A disassembly of Pokémon Crystal is available on GitHub, and nowhere in it is code for having Shuckle turning Berry Juice into a Rare Candy. However, this rumor probably has its origin in the fact that Shuckle can turn a Berry into Berry Juice after the player has visited Goldenrod City. This section of ...

No, Shuckle could never turn Berry Juice into a Rare Candy. That is just a rumor. Here's a YouTuber going through the disassembled code to debunk it.

Yes, breeding with a shiny Ditto gives you a 1 in 64 chance that the offspring will be shiny, compared to a 1 in 8192 chance of encountering a shiny Pokèmon in the wild. In the second generation, whether a Pokêmon was shiny or not is determined by the its Individual Values, or IVs. These are four numbers ranging from 0 to 15, used to determine an individual ...

According to two answers on Pokemondb, sliding on ice does not count as taking steps, and therefore ice skating is not progressing your friendship.

I've been able to try this for you. So I caught a Pidgey in Pokémon Red, I then transferred this to Pokémon Silver, then using the Poké Transporter / Bank I was able to move it to Moon (pictures below). Unfortunately it doesn't say what region it was from, exactly. Of course one of the benefits of transporting Pokémon to Sun/Moon or Ultra Sun/Ultra ...

Smeargle can learn HM moves by using Sketch, but no trainer has any Pokémon that knows an HM move, and no Pokémon can naturally learn an HM move. Additionally, after a Link Battle both players' parties are returned to their status right before the battle. Consumed items are restored, and Sketched moves are lost, so asking for another player's help won't ...

I got the games today, and can confirm that none of the glitches have been fixed. The games really are true to the originals. It is still unclear however whether you will be able to upload these glitched Pokemon into Pokemon Bank.

Unfortunately, when your nephew created a new save file a significant portion of the data will have been overwritten, so complete recovery is impossible and even partial recovery is completely unfeasible. The cartridge only has a limited amount of memory to write on. In order to make room for your nephews save, it had to make new space by writing over place ...

The Attack IVs. From the Bulbapedia: In Generation II, a Pokémon's gender was determined through its Attack IV. Due to this, a female Pokémon could never have a maximized Attack stat (unless they were a member of an all-female species, such as Smoochum), because female Pokémon were given the lower portion of the IV range. This also prevented female ...

As listed in This description of the light ball in Blubapedia it is only the starter Pikachu which will grant you a light ball whilst trading to generation 2. Its under the section Acquisition for GSC. That makes sense since those special starter Pokemon are considered special Pokemon in game, much like the starters from the Let's Go Series. Every other ...

In Gen II, shiny Pokémon are determined by IVs: In Generation II, Shininess is determined by the IVs of a Pokémon. If a Pokémon's Speed, Defense, and Special IVs are all 10, and its Attack IV is 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 14 or 15, it will be Shiny. I can't find anything to confirm it, but I'd assume that the Red Gyarados has fixed IVs, as there's no special ...

According to Bulbapedia: In Generation II, Shininess is determined by the IVs of a Pokémon. If a Pokémon's Speed, Defense, and Special IVs are all 10, and its Attack IV is 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 14 or 15, it will be Shiny. If you clone a Pokemon you will get a perfect duplicate of the starting Pokemon, including nickname, level, moveset, OT, ID and IVs. ...

Yes, From the press release it says you can use the wireless features just as was done in Red/Blue/Yellow with Gold and Silver. As with the Virtual Console versions of Pokemon Red and Blue, and Pokemon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition, Gold and Silver will be compatible with the 3DS wireless communication feature, which means Link Trades and Link Battles ...

It looks like there are three ways to get a Leaf Stone in Crystal specifically. From here: In Crystal, there are three ways to get a Leaf Stone: Show Bill's Gramps an Oddish. Get the Picnicker's Phone number on Route 34, and somtimes she will call and give you a Leaf Stone when you talk to [her]. You can also get one from Mystery Gift (very Rare).

None of the bugs present in the original games were fixed. The Virtual Console re-releases are identical to the originals in every way.

It sounds like you need to talk to the director in the first floor of the Kanto Radio Tower That should get you access to the station since you've already dealt with the power plant.

Yes, but you'll need to deposit your Pokémon in a box and withdraw them back in order for their stats to change.

To clarify, EVs did not exist in the second generation. Stat experience took their place instead. In second generation, Exp. Share does half the stat experience. Any Pokemon with Pokerus has their stat experience gain doubled, as you said; both the sweeper and Exp. Share holder would have 50%*2 = 100% of the stat experience each. In future generations, ...

No, the password cannot be 00000. In fact, it cannot even start with more than two "0" digits. According to this guide, the password is the sum of values derived from the trainer name, current amount of money, and trainer ID. You can get the maximum number of zeros at the start of the password by minimizing the value of each part of the sum. In ...

If you take a look at the Effort values page on the wiki, it states: In the context of Generations I and II, the effort system is unofficially known as Stat Experience, or "Stat Exp." for short. If you scroll down the page it brings you to a section on Stat Exp. In Generations I and II, effort points given are equal to the base stats of the ...

To breed a level-up move, both parents have to know the move. This means you can't breed with Ditto, but have to use a male Pokémon from the same egg group that knows it. However, Defense Curl is TM40 in GSC, so you don't need to breed for it at all if you're willing to spend the TM (or use one of the various item creation/duplication glitches). And unlike ...

If you are using an emulator, there are save game editors that allow you to adjust the IVs and EVs of your Pokémon. A Crystal to Ruby conversion tutorial shows one editor called Enciclopedia Pokémon that allows you to adjust these stats: You can play around with the IV and EV values until you match the party you had. This probably the only way to get your ...

Here on Bulbapedia you can find a complete List of all the version exclusive Pokemon for each game in each generation and even spin-off games. Regardless of the region you are in, these rules will apply.

No, there is no way to trade from second generation games to third or fourth generation games, whether the original release or the virtual console re-release.

In fact, yeah, there is a way. But it requires third-party hardware. For this to work, you will need: 2 Gameboy Colors/Advances A link cable A GBC Flash Cart of your choosing (preferably one compatible with the emulator you're using). A compatible SD card Step 1: Transfer files to SD card I recommend following a video tutorial for transferring emulator ...

Yes that unknonw exists and is correct. Here you have a image with all 28 forms that the unowns can have: As you can see that unown is the second one.
