When you get to Mt. Battle and battle to the top, you will face Cipher Admin Dokim. He has Entei as a Shadow Pokemon.


To get Ho-Oh, purify all 48 Shadow Pokemon and defeat 100 trainers on Mt. Battle using only the Pokemon from your story mode team. Note: Your PC must have an empty slot.

Purify all 48 Shadow Pokemon; complete Mt. Battle in story mode; and complete Mt. Battle in battle mode. After doing all of this, you should be rewarded with Ho-oh.

Purify quickly

Get the Time Flute and call Celebi. When Shadow Pokemon see Celebi, they will become purified. Alternately, get the Time Flute to Jurachi to do the job.

Get the Cologne Case and buy about eight Vivid Scents. Then, use them on a Shadow Pokemon.

To purify faster, battle at the Phenac City Pregym. Battle as much as needed. Then, go to the construction site that looks awful and keep going through the paths. Note: You can always go to the fountain in Phenac City.


To get Jurachi, load him into the Game Boy Advance from the bonus disc. Then, transfer him to Pokemon Colosseum.

After you have the three Legendary Dogs (Suicune, Riakou, and Entei) and the two dragons Latios and Latias, go to Celebi Place and he will give you a Master Ball then leave the shrine. Leave and return. Jirachi will be there. Note: Jirachi cannot be transferred to your game. At Celebi Place, catch Jirachi with the Master Ball. Leave and purify it. It is a Shadow Pokemon. Come back and get it purified by Celebi; it will be back. You can try to catch Celebi. It will not be a Shadow Pokemon. After doing this, you can transport Celebi to your Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire game.


Raikou can be found as a Shadow Pokemon of Cipher Admin Ean in the Shadow Pokemon Lab.


Suicune can be found as a Shadow Pokemon of Cipher Admin Venus in The Under.

To catch Suicune easier, before you fight Venus you should know her Pokemon. She has Vileplume, Delcatty, Steelix, Banette, and Suicune. You can easily faint Vileplume and Steelix with Entei’s Fire Blast. Banette will go down with Umbreon’s Dark moves. When you get to Suicune, use Umbreon’s Confuse Ray. Then, wear it down with Secret Power and it will eventually get paralyzed. If Suicune’s health is in the yellow or red zone affected by paralysis, then throw a Net Ball at it. Togetic Defeat the Deep King Agnol in the Deep Colosseum. If you have all the Shadow Pokemon you will get a message about someone attacking people with a Shadow Togetic. Rush to the Outskirt Stand and fight him.


This is the strongest Shadow Pokemon in the game. You only have one attempt at this, so use the Master Ball. The leader of Cipher has it.

If missed your chance to get the Shadow Pokemon Tyrannitar and MetaGross, go back to where the Cipher President and his minions are located. You have a chance to fight them all over, and retrieve some of the Shadow Pokemon you did not catch. Metagross and Tyrannitar are some of the most difficult Shadow Pokemon to get.

Easier RPG mode

To make the RPG mode a lot easier, stay a few hours in Pyrite Town’s Duel Square, even though it is drawn as a circle. You can battle all six of the trainers there repeatedly. This makes purifying Shadow Pokemon a lot easier, and getting 99 of any desired items in the Pokemon Marts all over Orre, because they still keep giving you money. Unfortunately, you only receive a little less then the first cash prize that you received. For example, with the loner trainer on the right, Rider Vant, he will give you 300 for your first win, but every single time you defeat him after that it is 290. Although this takes time, their Pokemon are generally easy to defeat because they are at a low level and most of them are normal types. Note: Each of the Shadow Pokemon they used to have are now replaced with a different Pokemon (starting with lone trainer on right and going counter-clockwise. Also, the money amounts are the cash prizes that you win every time you win a battle with that trainer after the first battle.

1. Shuppet (level 30) replaces Misdreavus (level 30) for Rider Vant (290). Also has Zigzagoon (level 28) and Skitty (level 28).
2. Dudou (level 30) replaces Noctowl (level 30) for Rider Nover (270). Also has Ledyba (level 27) and Wingull (level 27).
3. Pichu (level 30) replaces Flaffy (level 30) for St. Performer Diogo (432). Also has Shroomish (level 28).
4. Sunkern (level 30) replaces Skiploom (level 30) for Rider Leba (280). Also has Oddish (level 28) and Dustox (level 28).
5. Horsea (level 30) replaces Quagsire (level 30) for Bandana Guy Divel (480). Also has Psyduck (level 29).
6. Numel (level 30) replaces Slugma (level 30) for Roller Boy Lon (168). Also has Azurill (level 27), Swablu (level 27), and Igglypuff (level 28).
When the meter is only four ‘hate’ bars long, your Pokemon will remember one of its original moves. When the meter is only three ‘hate’ bars long, your Pokemon will start earning experience points, but will not be of any benefit until it is fully purified from hate. When the ‘hate’ bar is only two bars long, it will remember a second move that you can use in battle alongside with Shadow Rush and the first one it remembered. When the meter is only one ‘hate’ bar long, your move list will contain four moves, including Shadow Rush. Once that last ‘hate’ bar disappears, you can finally visit the Relic Stone in the Relic Forest in Agate Village, where any nearly purified Pokemon will be fully purified and lose Shadow Rush, gain all its experience (leveling up each time), and remember its fourth initial move. You can still learn new moves by experience, TMs, and HMs.

Multi-tasking PC

The PC does a lot more now than to store your Pokemon. It also heals them to full health, removes status ailments (except Hyper Mode), and even revives fallen Pokemon.

Restore health

Use the following trick at a save point to restore your Pokemon to full health. Put the fainted Pokemon in, then take it out again.

Easy money

Successfully complete the game then trade your Pokemon back and forth from Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire. Give the trading Pokemon Nuggets then sell them in Pokemon Colosseum. This can also be done with other items.

Glitch: Talk through wall

In Pyrite Town, go into the jail to find the people that tried to kidnap your friend earlier in one of the cells. Go into the cell directly adjacent to their cell. To do this, pick up the jail key on the desk when you first enter the building. You can talk to them from your cell, directly through the wall.

Deep King Agnol

Complete the Deep Colosseum four times. On the fifth time you should fight Deep King Agnol in the last match.

150 Rare Candies

After defeating Cipher Admin Venus in her broadcast center (in the Under) go to the room behind the camaera nearest the entrance and open the box to get 3 RARE CANDIES. Give any 3 of your pokemon 1 candy apiece to HOLD. Go to the nearest PC and save. Deposit those 3 pokemon and then move the pokemon to seperate boxes. Save the game. Once saved turn off the GameCube and turn it back on 2 seconds later. Load the saved game and enter PC, once in you’ll see 3 boxes that contain items. Withdraw the previous 3 pokemon and take back their items. Each pokemon should now hold 50 RARE CANDIES apiece. Totaling 150 !

Infinite Balls

If you have a master ball or ultra ball, tell your first pokemon to use that ball. Then, in your second pokemon-‘s turn, go to items and switch the master/ultra ball using X or Y. The snag ball will be a master/ultra ball but you won-‘t have lost any pokeballs. Trust me. It works. P.S. Even though you switch items, you can still do a move, call it, or use an item. Just remember to switch pokeballs before you do it.Submitted by:Amy
