Pokemon Liquid Crystal Walkthrough: Updated for Beta 3.3.00512

Hello hello, how are you doing? My name is Allen and I welcome you to my updated Pokemon Liquid Crystal walkthrough. It’s been 3 years since I first made a walkthrough for this game and even now (May/June 2023) the game remains incomplete.

Featured Videos

The most recent copy of the game which I’ve found is an IPS file which was modified in July of 2020, no idea who modified it or if they fixed anything or changed anything within the game so for all I know it might just be the same September 2016 update untouched.

I’m not even sure if the creators of the game are still active in the ROM hack world because I haven’t seen any indication of this game getting completed, which is a shame because it had a lot of promise. But for the sake of this walkthrough we’ll dive back into it anyway.

For those of you who are playing Liquid Crystal for the very first time, it is a remake of Crystal Version but with plenty of extra content to spice things up so if you have fond memories of the 2nd generation games like I do, then I think you’re in for a fun time 🙂

A big thank you to Admin Jeiboy and PokemonCoders for the platform and opportunity to share this walkthrough with you. This is my first walkthrough to be posted here on the site and hopefully more will be appearing in the future so be sure to keep PokemonCoders bookmarked and check with the site whenever you can for ROM hacks, guides, information and more.

Professor Oak kicks things off for us with the usual introduction and then after that you get to set the time, but the only options available are Monday and Sunday 😀 oh well some days can feel like a Monday or a Sunday shrugs.

From there you’ll wake up in your room where you find a Wii which is shaped like an NES for some unknown reason and the one usual Potion waiting in the PC Storage.

Downstairs there’s Mom and one of your neighbours, Mom says that Prof. Elm is looking for you because there’s something that he wants you to do for him.

Mom then gives you the ever-handy PokeGear and explains its functions (Map, Radio, Phone Calls). She also got you an Expansion Card for it, the GBP Card. No information on what it does exactly but for the time being you can insert it into the PokeGear (or keep it out).

**NOTE: Even now in 2023 there hasn’t been any documentation that I have found for Liquid Crystal, so this walkthrough is pretty much what’s available. Previously I used a Crystal Version guide from GameFAQ for the Pokemon Found lists but now I found a few ROM hack tool programs which are more reliable since they give information directly from the game so I will be using those and will fill in information where possible. The Pokemon will be listed starting with the highest encounter rate at the top and lowest encounter rate at the bottom. Whatever I leave out is because I couldn’t get that information from the programs, please take note of that and I do apologise in advance. This is what happens when there’s no official documentation available for a game and that’s why I ask for documentation first before starting on a walkthrough for a game. End of Note.

There’s not much to see, you can stop by Prof. Elm’s house to visit his family and the house of your neighbour next door. To the east is Route 27 and then there’s a certain red-haired character skulking about near the Lab, ready to push you back when you try to speak to him.

ELM POKEMON LAB

Here we meet Elm and find out what he’s up: he’s conducting some research on new Pokemon for a paper that he plans to present at a conference, so he is hoping you can help him with that by raising a Pokemon that he caught recently. An email arrives, it’s from his good friend Mr. Pokemon and says he has made a major discovery. Elm asks you to see him (given that he’s so busy here) and then you get to pick your Starter:

CYNDAQUIL – The Fire Mouse Pokemon
Level: 5
Type: Fire
Ability: Blaze
Moves: Tackle, Leer
Item: Oran Berry

TOTODILE – The Big Jaw Pokemon
Level: 5
Type: Water
Ability: Torrent
Moves: Scratch, Leer
Item: Oran Berry

CHIKORITA – The Leaf Pokemon
Level: 5
Type: Grass
Ability: Overgrow
Moves: Tackle, Growl
Item: Oran Berry

**NOTE: Tackle is 35 Power/95 Accuracy in this game. No Physical/Special split and no Fairy-type. The absence of Fairy-type could’ve been excused but the absence of Physical/Special cannot.

Right after you pick the Starter, someone shouts from somewhere nearby that they’re watching Elm. Hmm, who could that be? Elm is startled by that sudden interruption but he recovers quickly and continues, saying that Mr. Pokemon lives not to far from Cherrygrove City the next city. If you need to heal your Pokemon just use the big machine next to the desktop which has the email from Mr. Pokemon. Just before you leave the Lab, you’ll be stopped by the Aide and given a Potion. Leave the Lab, go back home to see Mom then head out to Route 29.

In the northeast area there’s a Potion. On the south side, walking near a skinny tree and a Headbutt tree, is Tuscany of the Week Siblings. She appears there on Tuesdays and gives you a Silk Scarf. On the north side is the Gate leading to the last portion of Route 46, you can have a brief look.

That old man standing by the city signboard is the legendary Guide Gent, still able to spot a rookie Trainer and ready to show you around. As a reward for taking the mini tour, he’ll give you the Map Expansion Card. We’ll be back later when you’ve got HM Surf to reach that man across the water. In the PokeCenter there’s Miguel the Engineer who wants a Poliwag in exchange for his Mareep Eepy. Be aware that for some unknown reason the Pokedex doesn’t register any of the Pokemon that you will receive from in-game trades :/ No Poke Balls in the Mart at the moment but there are other essentials in stock:

Potion P300
Escape Rope P650
Antidote P100
Parlyz Heal P200

That’s all for now in Cherrygrove, carry on north to Route 30.

In the small house that you’ll find when you arrive here is a man who will share an Oran Berry with you. The potted plant he tells you to check on your way out has a Revival Herb. Behind the house is an Antidote and the left road which is currently blocked by a pair of Youngsters in the middle of what is sure to be a high stakes battle 🙂 Carry on north along the right road until you reach Mr. Pokemon’s house. To the left of the house are 2 Pecha Berry trees. There’s also a hidden Potion by the tree southeast from the 4 red flowers below the house (see screenshot below).

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 route 30 potion

MR. POKEMON’S HOUSE

He has been expecting you and gives you what he discovered: a Mystery Egg that he received from the Day-Care couple. Prof. Oak is here too, visiting his old friend and after finding out that you’re running an errand for Elm he gives you the latest Pokedex then hurries off to do his radio show in Goldenrod City. Mr. Pokemon heals your team and outside before you can leave for home you receive an urgent call from Elm, he’s in trouble at the Lab! But right outside of Cherrygrove you bump into the red-haired character who was by the Lab earlier, he thinks it’s a waste that you got a Pokemon there so he decides to show you the Pokemon that he’s got. The nerve of this guy!

Whatever-his-name-is then says he’s going to be world’s greatest Pokemon Trainer and dashes off. Well, there’s a 20+ years long list of people who have been aiming for that title so he’ll have to wait in line 😀 we’ll deal with him later but for now it’s back to the Lab to help Elm.

At the Lab there’s a policeman there now who heard that a Pokemon has been stolen (!) by the guy who battled you outside Cherrygrove. Now’s your chance to name him, but obviously we’ll go with his official name Silver. I still remember when I played Silver Version for the first time many, many years ago I named him Gino because I thought it was a cool name. It would be some years later before I found out his official name and learned that, funny enough, the Japanese word for Silver is Gin (pronounced with a hard “G” sound like the word “get”). After the policeman leaves, you hand the Mystery Egg over to Elm and when he sees that you got a Pokedex from Oak he believes that you are ready to head off and aim to become Champion. That long journey starts by challenging the Gym in Violet City. He suggests that you speak to Mom before you go. The Aide gives you 5 Poke Balls on the way out. Back home Mom will give you a Nugget that you can sell and a pair of Running Shoes. So begins the journey to the top 🙂

Just outside town you’re stopped by the old man who has been in the grass nearby, he’ll offer to show you how to catch Pokemon like an Old Dude Boss. Back in Cherrygrove City, Poke Balls are now available at the Mart. Back on Route 30 the epic battle has ended now on the left road, the first Youngster that you’ll meet is Joey (who lost that epic battle to Michael).

A little further up after the non-Trainer woman is Martin.

Near him is a Camper who loves Mondays, he’ll give you a free Ultra Ball. Then just before you even make it to the steps ahead you’ll be stopped by another character who is also aiming to become the world’s greatest Trainer. Meet Zane!

And it looks like you have a second Rival that you’ll need to worry about now, lovely :D. Hopefully he’s someone who actually adds something to the story instead of being a typical Rival who just pops up at the worst times for more battles. Head up the steps and enter Route 31.

The entrance to Dark Cave will come into view soon enough but we’ll check that out properly when you’ve got HM Flash. To the right of the entrance is a PP Max and on the left is a Potion. After the Potion is a Persim Berry tree and the sleepy guy standing next to it, make a note of him for later. South from there is a Poke Ball and Matthew, then Gabe in the grass on the left.

Home of the first Johto Gym, good old Violet. Let’s look around before seeing Gym Leader Falkner: In the house to the west from the PokeCenter you can trade Bellsprout for Kyle’s Onix Rocky. We’ll be back with HM Cut to explore that path on the right of the Pokemon Academy. Earl isn’t around though, where’s he at? To the north is the ancient Sprout Tower.

At the end of the corridor you’ll see the scene of Silver receiving HM Flash from the Elder and being told that he’s too harsh with his Pokemon. But of course Silver only cares about strong Pokemon and winning so the Elder’s wise words just wash over him. After he exits by means of an Escape Rope, you can pick up one for yourself from the top right corner before speaking to the Elder. Show him how much you and your Pokemon have learned so far.

Now you just need the right Gym Badge to activate it, so exit the tower and prepare for Falkner.

Right by the door of the Gym you are stopped by a spikey-haired new face who is in rush, dashing off to the west. And here I was thinking you might get ambushed by the door like what tends to happen :D. Who was that (possible) Rival #3?

As you might expect, since this is a remake of an older game, the TMs are single use :/ Exit the Gym and just outside you’ll receive a call from Elm, he has discovered something about the Mystery Egg and has sent his Lab Aide to the Violet PokeCenter. Leave one space in your party free then speak to the Aide, he’ll ask you to take the Egg and travel with it. After the Pokemon inside (Togepi) hatches you should return to the Lab and show Elm, he’ll reward you with an Everstone.

Our time in Violet City ends for now. The next major destination is Azalea Town, but first let’s return to Dark Cave and explore what we can of it.

Well damn, it turns out that the only thing you can do is head up to the northwest corner to pick up a Moon Stone. Dark Cave to be continued later then. Exit, back to Violet City and head west.

Indeed, on the west end of this route is a certain “tree” keeping people from continuing their travels. The man standing near that spot even tried to punch it :D, make a note of him for later. On Thursdays you’ll find another man here, that’s Arthur of the Week Siblings and he’ll give you a Hard Stone. Turn south and head for the Ruins of Alph.

Only two chambers are reachable for now, we’ll be back with HM Surf to explore the rest. The chamber to the south of the Research Center is just occupied by visitors so go into the north one and solve the slide panel puzzle of Kabuto. After the puzzle is completed the floor under you opens and you drop down to the chamber that has visitors. HAD visitors I should say, because they ran out when the Unown appeared and took over. In the DS remakes you could also unlock the back rooms of the puzzle chambers to pick up some nice items but that’s not possible in this game and since there’s no need to get the Pokedex upgraded with Unown Mode, you don’t have to catch 3 different Unown for one of the Scientists in the Research Center. Go through the east Gate and out onto Route 32.

To the north just outside Violet City is a Cheri Berry tree. Down from there is the guy in green who would’ve stopped you if you had come here before defeating Falkner, but now that you got the Badge he’ll give you a Miracle Seed. South from him is a man on a left side hill that can only be reached when you’ve got HM Cut, remember him for later because he has TM05 Roar. South from that hill is Richard.

Head to the right from the entrance, you’ll see an item in the top right corner of your screen. Unfortunately you can’t reach it yet, we’ll have to come back with HM Cut. South from that is a plant that’s still growing but the game will act like you have the Wailmer Pail and you can water it. Huh. Am not sure if it’s a harmful glitch so just ignore it and carry on to the left, you’ll meet Ant and see Zane ahead. Uh-oh.

Zane can’t get into town because of the little boy standing next to him. He won’t let anyone into Azalea until his Poke Doll is returned to him, which he lost in Union Cave. At least he hasn’t glued himself to the road like some people these days :D. Zane gives you a Repel and it’s back into Union Cave for you. Descend the ladder near PokeManiac Philip and you’ll find the Poke Doll in the top left corner. Return it to the boy and the road to Azalea is clear now.

Signs of trouble are already there before you even step into town proper – A Team Rocket Grunt is standing by the entrance to Slowpoke Well, claiming to be a good Samaritan and all. There’s a hidden Full Heal on the slope above the entrance but the only way to reach it is by using the Walk through Walls codes :/ darn it.

Another Grunt is by the Gym. No sign of Zane though, unless he’s already inside? In the Mart, the man in white is the Rock Tomb Tutor (he only teaches it once). At Kurt’s house speak to him and find out about what Team Rocket is up to here, they are cutting off Slowpoke tails to sell them. But Kurt has had enough for this and he runs out to go deal with Team Rocket at the Slowpoke Well. Follow him!

We’ll be back with HM Surf and Strength for more exploration. The Grunts can’t do any more here but now we know that Team Rocket is back in action and up to no good again, damn. Kurt’s back has eased and you return with him back to Azalea. He will be happy to make custom Poke Balls if you bring him Apricorns (such as the White Apricorns that are growing just outside his house). As a reward for saving him he gives you a Net Ball.

Everything seems back to normal now that the Slowpoke have returned, but another problem has come up: the Apprentice of the Charcoal Master hasn’t returned from Ilex Forest yet. Get ready because there are 2 back to back battles coming up. Head for the west Gate, just before you even reach it you’ll be stopped by the spikey-haired guy from Violet City. He wants to “talk” 🙂

He really doesn’t have any sympathy for the weak and not even an entire organisation like Team Rocket scares him, so he plans to take them on by himself and warns you to stay out of his way. Can’t we team up since you’re both going to face Team Rocket? Oh well, let’s carry on into the forest.

Follow the path until you reach the Apprentice. He’s okay but his master’s special Farfetch’d has run away from him and the Apprentice can’t chase after it. Head southeast, you’ll see Farfetch’d but it will flee after after you try talking to it. Behind the trees on the right is a Revive. Don’t go straight north after Farfetch’d, instead circle round to the north side and approach it from there. This will send Farfetch’d back to the Apprentice and the Charcoal Master who has arrived. Because the Apprentice doesn’t have a Badge Farfetch’d won’t obey him, well well 🙂 The Charcoal Master rewards you with HM01 Cut for helping them out. Return to town and prepare for Bugsy.

I’m remembering watching the anime years ago when Ash and company met Bugsy. Like a lot fans, I initally thought Bugsy was a girl! He looks like a girl and he was voiced by a woman for crying out loud haha. It would’ve been interesting if he had been a female character, being the first ever female Gym Leader who likes Bug-types and not a stereotypical female cough anime Misty cough who squirms when a Bug-type appears 🙂 Zane is here too, but don’t talk to him yet because he’ll want a battle.

Another loss for Zane and he doesn’t get why he lost. He has a big dream of becoming the greatest Trainer of all time but it’s going to be very tough road for this guy. Exit the Gym and go to the Charcoal Kiln, the Apprentice thanks you for helping him by giving you a Charcoal that he made. Nice. Since you can Cut now, it’s time for the first backtrack run. Once that’s done we’ll come back and get through Ilex Forest.

THE GREAT BACKTRACK: CUT EDITION

/ROUTE 33\

  • It turns out that the plant which was growing here earlier is a Pecha Berry tree 🙂 thank goodness, it wasn’t a glitch. Now you can reach the northeast corner to pick up the Moomoo Milk that’s there.

/ROUTE 32\

  • You can get TM05 Roar from the man on the left side hill in the north section of the route.

/VIOLET CITY\

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 violet city poison barb
  • At the end of the short path behind the PokeCenter is a hidden Poison Barb. And that’s all for now, back to Azalea Town and Ilex Forest.

Continue north from the spot where you found the Apprentice, just up ahead is the famous Shrine for the Guardian of Ilex Forest. Is it even in this game though? Or the GS Ball for that matter?? Further north from the Shrine is a pool of water and an X Attack on the bottom right. East from there is an Antidote between some Headbutt trees. Speaking of Headbutt, circle round to the southeast from there to reach a Youngster who will give you the TM for it. Back to the main path, get to the northeast side to pick up an Ether then continue to the left to meet Walt before reaching the Gate.

On Sundays there will be a second clerk behind the counter, she’ll give you TM27 Return if your 1st position Pokemon has high enough Friendship or TM21 Frustration if it is unhappy.

[Each costs P3000]
TM41 Thunder Punch
TM48 Fire Punch

Just more vending machines on the 6th floor and on the rooftop are vending machines which have Poke Dolls instead but they’re empty. Take the elevator to the Basement, where you’ll find a Potion in the southeast area. Can’t reach the other areas from this side, so exit.

Some interesting facilities are at the PokeCenter but currently the only ones which work are the healing service and the trading service. I wonder if the others were planned for the full version of this game.

Just northwest from there is the Game Corner, but you need a Coin Case before going in there. One of the regulars tossed his Coin Case in the Underground. Travel south from the Game Corner to find one of the two entrances leading to it.

The first Trainer spotted is Eric.

On weekends you’ll see an old woman near Issac, she sells these herbs:

Energy Root P800
Heal Powder P450
Revival Herb P2800

Next up is the Pokemon Salon, on Sundays/Wednesdays/Fridays you’ll find the younger brother who charges P300 and then on Tuesdays/Thursdays/Saturdays there’s the older brother who charges P500. All the Pokemon in the party receive the haircut instead of just one, nice. The Salon is closed on Mondays. There’s a hidden Parlyz Heal on the tile above the potted plant that’s above the Salon.

Continue up the main to Donaldbain.

PokeManiac Donaldbain
((1 Potion))
Lv19 Slowpoke [Water/Psychic]
Lv20 Slowpoke [Water/Psychic]
Prize: P960

He tells you that Hiker Ant on Route 33 will phone you whenever he finds rare Pokemon. This worked in the original Crystal but not here because we didn’t even get his number after battling him (I went back to talk to him again, no change). You’ve got the Coin Case though so let’s hit the Game Corner.

GOLDENROD CITY GAME CORNER

No free Coins from some of the patrons like in other Game Corners, but once you have the Itemfinder be sure to come back and search around the floor for hidden ones 🙂 Speak to the old man by the left side counter to buy them:

50 Coins P1000
500 Coins P10000

On the right side are the prizes:

Abra 100 Coins
Cubone 800 Coins
Wobbuffet 1500 Coins
Bagon 3500 Coins
Spoink 6500 Coins

TM14 Blizzard 5500 Coins
TM25 Thunder 5500 Coins
TM38 Fire Blast 5500 Coins
TM30 Shadow Ball 6000 Coins
TM28 Dig 6000 Coins

Now you can buy an Abra for the Machop trade at the Department Store and get an edge over Whitney’s Gym. Also if you need a Pokemon that will learn False Swipe, get a Cubone and train it to Level 33. South from the Game Corner is Bill’s house, but the world’s greatest PokeManiac isn’t home because he has been called to visit the Ecruteak City PokeCenter. There’s a Rocket Grunt loitering outside the Radio Tower, a sign of future troubles…

RADIO TOWER

Speak to the Gentleman by the front desk to receive a Premier Ball. There’s a special promotion going on involving a quiz. Answer 5 questions correctly and you win a Radio Expansion Card…although the Radio doesn’t work in this game :/ The lady to the right of the Gentlemen has the questions. Here they are:

Question 1: Is there a Pokemon in this game that appears only in the morning?
Answer: Yes

Question 2: Is this statement correct – You can’t buy a Bicycle at a Mart?
Answer: Yes

Question 3: Does TM02 contain the move Blizzard?
Answer: No

Question 4: Does Prof. Oak live in New Bark Town?
Answer: No

Question 5: Are there any Pokemon that are not catchable in this game?
Answer: Yes

Was it going to work in a future version? You can go up to the next floor but a guard is blocking the stairs leading further. He says that the Director is acting strange. Noted.

The Station is right next door from the Tower, but the Magnet Train isn’t running. East of the Station is a house where there’s a lady who can give you hints about the Friendship level of your Pokemon. South from there is the Goldenrod Science Center. It’s basically like the Cinnabar Island Lab where you can get Fossils resurrected. In the first room (Meeting Room) you can trade a regular Ditto for Sparkles the Shiny Ditto by speaking to Rowan the big guy. Sparkles will be holding Stardust. In the next room there is a Super Nerd who is the Dragon Claw Tutor. Check the computer next to the regular PC for this interesting email about Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres:

There are three legendary bird Pokemon. They are Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. Their whereabouts are unknown. We plan to explore the cavern close to Cerulean.

From: Pokemon Research Team

Hmm, Cerulean Cave eh? Noted. Then there’s the last room where you can resurrect Fossils. South from the Science Center is the Bike Shop, you get a free Bike and can keep it just as long as you can advertise it by riding around.

Across the train tracks is the Gym and to the east from it is the Flower Shop. The owner’s little sister is out, having gone to see the strange “tree” on Route 36. We’ll be seeing her soon, but for now it is Gym time.

[g3] GOLDENROD CITY GYM

And right on cue the girl bursts into tears after losing. Bridget will stop you to explain that Whitney will calm down soon. Talk to her again, she’s done crying now. She remembers to give you the Plain Badge, which lets you use Strength outside of battle.

When you’re ready, head north for the Gate. The guard will ask you to take the Spearow that he’s got because unlike him you’re a Trainer. It is Level 10 and is holding a Green Apricorn. In the original games this was Kenya the Spearow and you were meant to deliver the Mail that it was holding to the sleepy guy on Route 31. He would give you TM50 Nightmare and the guard would give you an HP Up afterwards. Kenya knew False Swipe too, while this Spearow does not haha damn. The woman mentions that the “tree” moved a little when someone used a Squirtbottle on it. Nice clue.

Then you’ll find Floria, the little sister from the Flower Shop. She was curious about the “tree”, came out here to see it and figured out that it’s a Pokemon after sprinkling it with water 🙂 who would’ve thunk it? She’ll then return to the Flower Shop to tell her sister about it, so follow after her and speak to the sister. Since you’ve defeated Whitney already (proving that you are a strong Trainer) she will give you the Squirtbottle. Back to Route 36, use it and Sudowoodo attacks! It can be caught – Sudowoodo is at Level 20, has Rock Head and knows Rock Throw, Mimic, Flail and Low Kick. Afterwards Floria’s sister comes along and rewards you with the Berry Growing Starter Kit, which contains 4 Berries and the Wailmer Pail. Remember the guy who tried to punch Sudowoodo? He’s still there and now that Sudowoodo is gone, he’ll thank you with HM06 Rock Smash! No Gym Badge is required for it so we can go back to Dark Cave and finish exploring the first area.

THE BRIEF BACKTRACK: ROCK SMASH EDITION

/DARK CAVE\

  • Make your way to the top right corner of the east side, you’ll find an Ice Heal there. South from there the path splits into two sides, go along the left side to pick up a Dire Hit then go up along the right side for a Full Heal. Further down is an exit which takes you to the start of Route 46, there’s nothing there except for an Aspear Berry tree on the left and ledges leading to 3 Trainers with some high level Pokemon. You can either come back for them later or if you think you’re ready for them now, here they are: after jumping down the first ledge, go for the south one to reach Bailey or go to the left for Luke and Erin.

In the Gate have a look at that poster on the wall, it’s a notice from the Park Warden saying that the Bug Catching Contest will no longer be held here (?!). What the…and if you enter the southern Gate you’ll see the guard receiving this information first hand from the new Park Warden, who doesn’t even give any reasons why he is shutting it down. The previous Warden moved to the Orange Islands and this new boss blames him for this. Unbelievable. Just after entering the Park from the eastern Gate you’ll see Jake in the grass.

Further down is Relaxation Square, speak to the woman who is seated on the bench and get a Quick Claw. That’s all as far as the National Park is concerned now so go back to Route 36 and continue west, you’ll join a confrontation in progress between Axel and a pair of unknown Grunts. He’s trying to find out where their leader is but the Grunts won’t talk and instead focus on their mission, which involves Prof. Elm, and they run off to New Bark Town. From what Axel says afterwards, he has dealt with this unknown group before but they got away from him. He says he’ll meet you in New Bark Town since that could be where the leader is.

Back in New Bark Town enter the Lab and you’ll find the two Grunts and Elm. No Axel yet and for the first Grunt that’s good news because he doesn’t know why Axel is after them. First there’s Team Rocket and now there’s this group – Team Saturn!

After those two leave, Elm explains that the Pokemon which Team Saturn are searching for here are Latios and Latias, who are obviously non-Johto Pokemon. Strange. Axel arrives, delayed because he got lost while trying to find this place. Wow, really? No wonder, he’s not from around here – Axel is from the Ouka region. He came to Johto to study its Pokemon before meeting you. Maybe he’ll be less of a Rival and more of ally now that there’s Team Saturn. Elm is safe and everything seems okay so return to Route 36 and continue onto the very brief Route 37.

Here we are in Ecruteak, let’s look around: in the house next to the Gym you’ll receive the Itemfinder and find out about Ecruteak’s history. Use the Itemfinder to pick up a Hyper Potion from the top left corner by the pond and also check around that northeast section of Ecruteak for more hidden items: Great Ball, Revive (north side of the pond). They respawn, funny enough, I’m guessing daily.

A Sage is blocking access to the Gym, he says Morty isn’t there. Without his Badge, nobody is allowed to enter Tin Tower.

At the PokeCenter you meet Bill, just in time to see him put the final touches to another system he has invented – the Move Relearner. It will be the machine in the top left corner of the PokeCenter. In another ROM hack, Pokemon Glazed, he invented a Teleportation system (because you couldn’t Fly in Johto). Might’ve sounded like a cool idea on paper but in reality it just made travelling around Johto tedious. If you return to Bill’s house in Goldenrod City speak to him and receive a Level 20 Eevee if you have a free spot in your party. It will have Run Away and know Tail Whip, Helping Hand, Sand-Attack and Growl. Just like the original games, Eevee evolves into Umbreon or Espeon by levelling up with high Friendship at night or during the day.

ECRUTEAK DANCE THEATER

Ecruteak is home to the famous Kimono Girls, fine dancers who are also fine Trainers. The old man at the Dance Theatre will give you a special prize if you can defeat the girls. In my 20+ years as a Pokemon fan I had no idea that Rhydon COULD Surf :D, you always learn something new 🙂 whenever you’re ready, get onto the stage and starting from the left side here we go:

For now though we should find Morty, so exit the Theater and head to the Burnt Tower. On the bottom right corner just below the ledge near the tower entrance, you’ll find a hidden X Speed.

The first person you see is Morty, he’s here studying the history of the Legendary Beasts with his good friend Eusine (the Super Nerd-looking guy on the right). Eusine heard that Suicune is here but so far no luck in finding it. Proceed to the northeast area and check the statue in the corner for a hidden Ultra Ball.

You can see Silver waiting around at the center of the room, but before you can reach him you’ll meet Zane in the northwest area. No battle this time, he was just here to train and found a Magnet that he’ll give you. Then off he goes to his next destination, the sea. As for Silver he came here searching for the Legendary Pokemon that was said to roost in this tower, but he hasn’t found it and somehow it’s your fault!

No surprise Silver doesn’t think you can catch a Legendary Pokemon, and then while he’s talking you suddenly fall through the floor to the basement! And even that is also your fault as far as Silver is concerned :D.

No injuries at least and what luck too because you’ve fallen in front of the Legendary Beasts! When you try to approach them they run off one after the other, but Suicune stays for a moment to have a closer look at you before leaving. Eusine appears, shocked to have seen Suicune at last after chasing it for a decade. Now that the Legends are out and about Eusine says he’ll track Suicune, so we’ll definitely see him again. That item in the top right corner is TM20 Endure, remember to come back here for it when you’ve got the Strength. Leave the tower and head for the Gym.

[g4] ECRUTEAK CITY GYM

Nice, now you can Surf and Pokemon will obey you until Level 50. Let’s get that next backtrack run done before carrying on west to Route 38. Brace yourselves, it’s going to be one hell of a detour 🙂

THE GREAT BACKTRACK: SURF EDITION

/ECRUTEAK CITY\
There’s a hidden Burn Heal by the northwest side of the pond.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 ecruteak city burn heal 2

You can also a little bit of the area outside Tin Tower from there, but now that the Legendary Beasts are out nobody is allowed to enter Tin Tower.

/RUINS OF ALPH\
Surf across the pool to the south. On the left side are chambers that are reached from Union Cave and on the right side is another puzzle chamber, this one has an Aerodactyl puzzle. After solving it you receive a message saying that something clicked into place somewhere. Hmm.

/VIOLET CITY\
– Surf to the northwest area from the Gym, you’ll find a man who has a strange flute that makes it rain when played (?). He doesn’t want it so you get it – the Blue Flute (part time rainmaker but on other occasions it awakes up sleeping Pokemon), which he thinks could be part of a set. Near him is a PP Up.
– Surf east from the Sprout Tower to meet a man who sells Fire Stones for P2100. Near him is a Rare Candy.

/ROUTE 35\
There’s a Leppa Berry tree across the pond.

/UNION CAVE\
Head for the northwest ladder on 1F. Down below you’ll find Andrew and then Calvin plus the next ladder across the pool.

Exit and go south from Tohjo Falls, Surf east along the bank until you reach a spot to land. You’ll find a Rare Candy there.

We can finally reach the man on the jetty near the shore, he’ll give you a bottle of Mystic Water. There’s a Dive spot by that jetty too, note that for later. North from there is a wooded area that connects Cherrygrove to Route 32.

Although it looks like a troublesome forest maze, it’s not too bad. Just head east until you see a path going northeast, it leads to TM44 Rest. At the east end of the woods is an exit. Damn, no sign of that “mystical” Pokemon :S challenge to be continued. Hopefully it’s not one of those Pokemon which only appears on a specific day.

Then you’ll see Kevin on the left, he starts to tell you something about a lake inside Lost Woods but his words get a little glitchy :/

But he manages to says that people have gotten lost while searching for the lake and the Pokemon rumoured to be there. So far the only way to see the lake is by using a ROM hack Map program and loading the map for Lost Woods, the lake is on the north side and there’s no clear or hidden path to get there. We’ll probably never know since this game remains incomplete. Return to Darren and head into the eastern half of Route 100.

You’ll see a north path in the river, that is the same path which you would’ve seen from Route 27 earlier. Go southeast then south into a water field of rocks until you reach an area of land. This is where the Orange Islands Gate is located, there’s a sea train known as the Undersea Express which is boarded from this Gate. There’s a PC inside the station if you need to use one. It’s nice to know that the adventure won’t end in Kanto, we’ve got the Orange Islands to look forward to as well 🙂 anyway, we’re halfway done with this backtrack, let’s continue.

/ROUTE 34\
Now you can pick up that Nugget behind the fence where Picnicker Gina is standing. The Scientist-looking man on that beach says that 3 mysterious pillars have risen up to the surface out at sea across from him. They are on an island called Outskirt Island. We’ll have a look there soon, but for now continue going south to reach the secret training spot of the 3 Cooltrainer sisters: Irene on the left, Jenn on the right and big sis Kate in the middle.

For defeating them you’ll receive Soft Sand from Kate. In the southeast corner of the grass on the right you’ll find a Guard Spec. Surf south along the coast, there’s another beach and you’ll see an old man on it. He has a Level 5 Cyndaquil to give away if you have a free spot in your party. Carry on south along the beach, you’ll go southeast to some stairs heading up onto a rocky slope. Climb onto the slope and continue southeast, you’ll reach a Leaf Stone and the next set of stairs which lead to a cave entrance just to the north. Inside is the southern area of Union Cave B2F, the only thing of note is a second TM44 Rest which you’ll find in the northwest corner. Back to the beach, Surf southeast to see Jess.

Beyond ridiculous 😀 Make your way back to Route 34’s road and Surf west from the Day-Care to Outskirt Island.

Once you’re inland, make your way to the southwest area to pick up a Calcium and then onto the southeast hill where there are the pillars which the Scientist saw: there’s a yellow pillar, a blue pillar and a red pillar. That Blue Flute which you received in Violet City and the remaining two are to be brought here and placed on these pillars. Doing so will unlock the secret locations of the Legendary Bird Pokemon. Or you could decide to keep the flutes since they are useful items that have unlimited usage. You would have to use cheat codes to get extra ones, so give this some thought. Just to the south from the pillars is a Rare Candy. To the west is Route 40 and Olivine City is northwest from there, but ignore them and Surf north from the island to a portion of land that is also identified as Outskirt Island. It connects Goldenrod to Olivine. Along the beach you’ll find Megan and then Darren on the east side.

In the farmhouse you’ll find the farmer and his wife, they are not happy because their beloved Miltank Moomoo isn’t giving out milk. She is sick and needs 7 Oran Berries to heal her up. Once Moomoo is healthy you can buy Moomoo Milk from the farmer for P500. His wife gives you TM13 Snore as a thank you gift. There’s a new area west from the farm, you reach it by going behind the farmhouse. It isn’t indicated on the Map so I’ll just call this area Route 39 (West).

Quite the curious place we’ve got here, which is made up of this floor and a basement. You reach the basement by using ladders or falling through the floor by standing on the greyish holes that you’ll see on the ground, such as the one that you’ll see on the left. There are 4 levels of slopes on each floor, currently you have arrived on the 2nd level and are on the eastern side of 1F. South from the hole on the left is a Parlyz Heal and there’s a hidden Hyper Potion on the stone which is top left from the Parlyz Heal.

There’s a hidden Moomoo Milk on the southeast side of the ground level, on a rock that’s in between the two rocky platforms.

Head up the stairs and get to the north side of B1F, there you’ll see an opening that can’t be reached but there’s a wall below it which has a message on it:

Break all the holes, the path will be revealed.

You’ve broken through one so far, 6 more to go. Go all the way to the right from that message wall to find a Calcium then climb down to the level below and pick up a Max Elixir on the bottom left. Continue south from the Max Elixir to reach a ladder and return to 1F level 2. You’ll appear the hole that you dropped through earlier. Go over to the right and drop through the first hole, ending up back on B1F’s ground level. Now make your way to level 3’s northeast side and climb the ladder there back to 1F. You’ll appear on the northeast side, 1F level 4. Head over to the left, down the stairs then down to level 2 and check the 4th stone on the left from the stairs for a hidden Revive.

After that go to the right, climb up to level 3 and drop down the hole on the right. Go down to B1F ground level and climb the ladder that’s on the right side platform. This takes you to the southeast side of 1F, level 3. Over on the left are 3 holes, drop through them in the order of right hole, left hole and bottom left hole. After dropping through the bottom left hole you’ll be on the southwestern side of B1F, level 3. Check the rock that you’ve landed next to for a hidden Great Ball.

Out of the Gym walks Silver, this time not looking to battle you since you’re still labelled as a weak Trainer in his eyes. He confirms what we’ve heard about the Gym Leader and her sick Pokemon, they are not in the Gym but on the top floor of the Glitter Lighthouse. Silver suggests you go there to train. No problem, but we’ll look around first:

Next door to the Mart is the Fishing Guru’s house, go get the Good Rod from there and you can use it to catch a Krabby around here. Tiim (not a typo, that’s how his name is spelt :D), who lives in the left house northeast from Mart, wants a Krabby and will trade you his Voltorb Volty for it. Volty will be holding a Stick and has Soundproof.

Next door to the PokeCenter is the Olivine Cafe, speak to the Sailor near the counter to get HM04 Strength! Simple as that, plus you got the right Badge for it already so it’s all good. The other Sailor across the table is the Overheat Tutor.

You can’t go beyond the fishing spot at the Olivine Harbor, so ignore that for now unless there are Pokemon that you want to catch.

Outside the Lighthouse is Axel, he has decided to return to the Ouka region after failing to find Team Saturn’s leader. But because of the sick Pokemon, the Lighthouse isn’t operational and that means Axel can’t leave yet. Let’s find out if we can help.

[batow] BATTLE TOWER

To participate you must have a party of 3 different Pokemon, and if they have Hold Items those must be different too. Also, certain Pokemon may have level restrictions placed on them. Unfortunately those Pokemon are not listed anywhere. The tower is made up of several Battle Rooms, each one has 7 Trainers that you must defeat in order to receive a prize. The woman at the front desk welcomes you to the tower and asks if you want to enter a Battle Room, but instead of being shown the Yes/No options you will be shown a list of items that would normally be on sale here:

Smoke Ball 800 Coins (this is the Yes option)
Miracle Seed 1000 Coins (Explains what the Battle Tower is about)
Charcoal 1000 Coins (this is the No option)

First order of business, hurry on over to the Pharmacy on the south side of Cianwood to receive the Secret Potion and then we can explore:

In the house just north of the Pharmacy is a guy who was forced to give away one of his Pokemon to Silver, but he still has one Pokemon left and he gives it to you, a Level 15 Shuckle. It is holding an Oran Berry, has Sturdy and knows Constrict, Withdraw, Wrap and Encore.

In the next house you can get some more clues about the Whirl Islands.

The famous Photo Master isn’t home, instead there is a little girl who tells you that the man built a machine that does his work and it is found in the Goldenrod Game Corner. The girl has a sister who lives in Cerulean City, a big fan of Stickers. Perhaps we’ll pay her a visit.

At the end of the north beach is the home of the PokeSeer…and just outside the house you’ll see Suicune! But when you try to get close to it Suicune takes off and dashes across the waves. Darn it *snaps fingers* it was right there! Then Eusine shows up, and unlucky for him he only caught a glimpse of Suicune as it ran off. To earn its respect he decides to battle you here and now.

While we’re still in Olivine, you can make a quick trip to Outskirt Island to drop off the remaining Flutes. We can fast travel now and can use Strength so let’s get the next backtrack run done before heading east of Ecruteak to Route 42.

You’ll find TM18 Rain Dance on the northeast platform and on the northwest one is a Scientist who will give you a King’s Rock. Luckily in this game Slowpoke’s evolution method is much, much simpler so this very patient guy will be waiting down here for a WHILE :D.

/UNION CAVE\
Return to the B1F area where you found the two Hikers and move the boulder out of the way of the second exit leading back to the Ruins of Alph. This time you’ll appear on the southwestern side of the Ruins, where you’ll see two puzzle chambers and notice that only one of them is open. Go in and solve the final puzzle (Omastar). As for the sealed chamber, make a note of it for later. The message after solving the puzzle is different, it says that something has risen up on a distant island. Where this “distant island” is, it ain’t in Johto. Kanto maybe? Or even the Orange Islands??

/BURNT TOWER\
You can get TM20 Endure from the basement and end the backtrack run.

Some good advice about Mt. Mortar from the Gate guard, it is indeed a maze. Question is, how much more of a maze is it this remake…? You’ll see an item behind the signboard by the cave entrance, that’s an Ultra Ball. Mt. Mortar has 3 entrances – west, middle and east. The middle one leads to the waterfall and a ladder going down to the basement. For now we’ll cover what we can then come back for the rest when you’ve got HM Waterfall. Make sure you’ve got a Pokemon that knows Strength.

This same expert also swept through Miller and the other Trainer who is here. Noted 🙂 move the boulder out of the way on the middle path and turn to the right, at the end you’ll find a Revive. Continue along the path as it goes northwest, there’s a platform ahead that has a Hyper Potion on it. On the right is another platform that has a Super Nerd-looking guy on it, we’ll get to him soon. On the upper right of that platform is a Nugget and just to the north of both platforms is a Max Potion. You’ll also see the upper section of this area that can’t be reached from this side.

Battle Tower be damned, there’s competition now in the form of this place haha. Here you battle a set of Trainers and win Berries. The maximum number of Pokemon you can use is 4 but the catch is the more Pokemon which are used, the higher the levels of your opponents. Levels range between 15 and 100. You must survive without healing your Pokemon until you either win or lose, although using items is allowed. Winning or losing are the only ways you can quit the challenge. What do you think of this when compared to Battle Tower?

Outside the Berry Tower, on the west side of the water, is a Super Potion. On the left is the Mt. Mortar middle entrance and south from there is a grove where you’ll find a Pink Apricorn tree and a Yellow Apricorn tree. Go back into the mountain and descend to the basement.

Cross over to the right side, you’ll find an Ether there. Surf up to the next platform that you can climb onto, there’s a Full Restore. Just behind that platform is a Dive spot and in the northeast corner is a Max Ether plus an entrance. It leads to a short series of ladders that take you to what is currently an empty area which we’ll check again later, same goes for the Dive spot. The northwest side of B1F can’t be reached so ignore that and Surf south until you can land on a spot on the right to get a PP Up. You’ll find a Carbos on the upper southwest side and that ends our exploration of Mt. Mortar for now. Back to Route 42 and carry on east to Benji then Mahogany Town.

For years I didn’t get how Mahogany is “Home of the Ninja” when there wasn’t a single ninja to be seen 😀 but I get it now, there is an old ninja hideout. Still though, where all da ninjaz at?? Like the original town, there’s not much going on here but it’s clear that things aren’t alright. By the eastern exit is a man who won’t let you pass but keeps selling you Lava Cookies for P300. Probably ran out of RageCandyBars. Another man is standing by the Gym, he suggests you visit the Lake of Rage. Apparently a red Gyarados has been seen there, despite regular ones being rare there. Hmm. At the Gift Shop you’ll find two suspicious guys, the Super Nerd sells these goods:

Tiny Mushroom P500
Slopoke Tail P200
Poke Ball P200
Potion P300

We can’t put a stop to this operation unfortunately so let’s head north for the lake. HMs Surf and Cut will be needed. On the bottom right near the Gate entrance is a short lane into the trees, there’s a hidden Timer Ball at the end of that lane.

In the Gate you’ll find the Aerial Ace Tutor.

As you head up, cutting trees along the way, you’ll find a Parlyz Heal before reaching a house on the northwest side. The man inside will give you TM10 Hidden Power. Unfortunately there’s no way of knowing your Pokemon’s Hidden Power type before teaching them the move in this game. To the east of the house you’ll find TM43 Detect. Return to Marvin then back onto the main road to find Ron and Ben.

Back to the lake, you’ll see the Fishing Guru’s house on the right, where you get a little history lesson about the lake. Head up the eastern slope all the way to the northeast area to find an Elixir. Back to the southern point of lake and move along the southwestern shore to reach a Rare Candy by some trees. Then it’s time to get into the water and meet the Red Gyarados, which is swimming near the west side of the fishing platform. It is Level 30, has Intimidate and knows Thrash, Bite, Dragon Rage and Leer. After catching it you’ll obtain the Red Scale…which has the hilarious (and unfortunate) icon of the Safari Zone Warden’s Gold Teeth haha. Surf to the south side of the island that is at the center of the lake, there’s a hidden Rare Candy you’ll find there and also a Dive spot. Also, there’s a hidden Max Potion on the northern side of the island.

Return to the southern side and find a familiar face standing near the signboard – Lance! He heard the rumours about what’s been happening here and came to investigate. The Magikarp are being forced to evolve into angry Gyarados by a strange radio signal that is broadcasting from Mahogany. Lance needs your help so he’ll wait for you in the Gift Shop. As for the Red Scale, take it to Mr. Pokemon and in exchange for it he’ll give you an Exp. Share.

Back at the Gift Shop you’ll see Lance clean house with his Dragonite before he finds secret stairs headed under the shop.

Below him are 7 rows of rigged floor tiles, if you step on some of them you’ll encounter either a Koffing, Voltorb or Geodude. In the original Crystal and in HeartGold/SoulSilver there was a set arrangement for which tiles had the wild Pokemon but here it’s like walking through grass. Go back into the central area, you’ll find a Hyper Potion near the third statue in the corridor outside the center room then a Nugget on the south side before getting to the warp panel and stairs going down.

-B1F-

You find Lance, he’ll heal your Pokemon then moves on. Ahead is a locked door to the generator room, a password is needed to open that door. There’s a Grunt on the right and one more near the stairs at the end of the corridor below.

The stairs lead to the northwest corridor of B2F. Another set of stairs is here, they lead to TM46 Thief. At the end of the corridor is the boss’ room and before you reach it, Silver comes along and he is really upset about what Lance said to him after he defeated Silver. No battle this time, Silver has his little rant and just leaves. On the right from the door is an Ultra Ball, then unlock the door and confront the boss. The room belongs to Giovanni, who has been away training since Team Rocket disbanded 3 years prior. But the Rockets are certain he will return some day so they remain ready.

Lance will take on the Electrode which are on the right side of the room. The Electrode have Static and know Tackle, Screech, Sonicboom and Spark. Afterwards Lance thanks you with TM08 Whirlpool, which requires Pryce’s Badge. Leave the Hideout, if you return to the Gate which had been taken over you’ll find the guard is back there now and he gives you TM36 Sludge Bomb. Some new faces have shown up at the lake too since that the Magikarp are okay again. There’s Ray on the southern shore, Andre to the north of the Fishing Guru’s house and Lois in the northeast area, she’s here for the Red Gyarados. Well, about that…

After they leave, the Director comes in and thanks you by giving you a Soothe Bell, which was found during the construction of this Radio Tower. He overheard Team Rocket mention that something is going on at the Tin Tower that warrants an investigation. On the left is TM09 Sleep Powder. Originally it’s the Clear Bell that the Director would’ve given you and now would be the time to race back to Ecruteak but no Clear Bell yet so we return to Mahogany.

On the right is the first of 3 frozen floors here. Slide onto the ice from the top edge of the floor, you’ll stop next to a stone. Slide up, right, down, right, down and right off on the other side. On the bottom right from the frozen floor is one Iron. By the second frozen floor, slide onto it from the right edge, then left, up and you can get the Escape Rope in the top right corner. Slide down, left, up, left, up, left, down, left, up, right, up and you can continue to get the Sun Stone at the top. After that it’ll be simple to make your way across the frozen pool and across the final one to reach a ladder in the northwest corner.

No ice here, head to the right to pick up a Big Mushroom. In the southwest corner there’s a Revive and blocking access to the southeast area is an angry Marowak. So angry it won’t even look in your direction. Rather unexpected but for now Marowak ain’t going nowhere. The northeast area is available, there’s a ladder that leads to another section of 1F that is empty for now. To be checked out again later. Back to Route 44 and continue east towards Vance near the entrance to regular Ice Path.

He would be the final Trainer on this route if Zane wasn’t waiting for you by the entrance :D. I gotta ask, his battle theme, is it a version of a battle theme from another game? Or it’s an original composition for this game? Maybe someone recognises it.

Not exactly Zane’s last stand but this is the battle where he admits that he had been obssessed with defeating you since losing the first encounter. No matter how hard he trains, he still can’t win and he doesn’t understand why. So now Zane decides to lay low for the time being (to train some more, of course) but you bet there will be a next time. After he leaves, a policeman steps out of Ice Path and informs you that an ice fall has happened, blocking the way to Blackthorn City. No passage until that has been cleared up. Then a phone call from Prof. Elm gives you more bad news: a Legendary Pokemon has returned to the Tin Tower and started a massive storm in Ecruteak. It starts to rain in New Bark as well and now we know why there’s rain on this route too! In fact it’s raining across Johto at this point. Return to Ecruteak, prepare and meet Morty and Eusine outside the Tin Tower entrance building. Eusine reveals that Suicune returned but he noticed that something isn’t quite right with it. Morty suspects that Team Rocket’s radio broadcast might be responsible for Suicune’s strange behaviour. The only one who can stop Suicune before it floods Johto is you. Morty, Eusine and you go into the entrance building, aiming for the tower, but the Sage by the stairs stops you and says only a Trainer with a pure heart and the Clear Bell can proceed to calm Suicune. Unfortunately the Clear Bell was lost ages ago, it was last seen in one of the Ruins of Alph chambers. The same one which was sealed when we saw it previously, that’s where you are going.

Inside the chamber an unknown voice says they are waiting for the Trainer who seeks the Clear Bell to calm the 3 Beasts. You have to travel back in time to an island near Johto. The Clear Bell is what you’ll use to return to the present. Check your team, check your Bag and if you’re ready, time jump!

(Shouldn’t this be a job for the Time Squad though..?)

There’s a hidden Full Restore on the left and a ladder just up ahead that takes you to the western side of the island.

Outside, you’ll find an Elixir near the next opening. Inside, head to the right to pick up an HP Up before climbing the north ladder. Outside, through the next opening and appear by the ladder across the north ladder. Just on the left of the ladder is a hidden TM06 Toxic.

Descend the stairs and head all the way to the right to find a Dragon Scale near stairs leading to the final ladder. Ignore the ladder for now and continue along the corridor to the exit below, leading to the southeast side of the island. Go through the next opening, now you’re in the corridor on the south side of the cave. On the left is a Sun Stone and an exit to the south side of the island, go out and through the next opening. The last corridor has a Full Restore at the end of it. That’s everything, return to the final ladder and step out on the northeast side of the island. You’ll see a Metal Coat just on the right then steps leading to the final opening. This takes you to the highest point of the island, there you find Ho-Oh sound asleep. Take the Clear Bell from it, Ho-Oh wakes up and carries you to a smaller island just to the north. On it is a tall stone pillar with a message carved on it:

Those who carry the item of soothing sound may be returned to what they know best!

You take out the Clear Bell and are transported back to the present, appearing in the Burnt Tower. Head to the Tin Tower, the Sage sees that you’ve got the Clear Bell and steps aside for you to go on and face the Wise Trio in back to back battles. Gaku first, Masa second and then Koji.

You get a nice history lesson about the towers after proving your worth to the Sages. Continue outside to the Bellchime Trail, just before entering the tower check the area on the right of the entrance for a hidden Full Restore.

On the first floor of the tower you find the Legendary Beasts waiting. Raikou leaves first, then Entei and Suicune stays to face you. Now’s your chance to catch it.

[suico] SUICUNE – The Aurora Pokemon
Level: 40
Type: Water
Ability: Pressure
Moves: Leer, Bubblebeam, Rain Dance, Gust

The one thing missing is the signature battle theme for the Beasts, that would’ve been nice to hear again. After the battle Eusine and the Wise Trio arrive, amazed by what they’ve just seen. Eusine has heard that Suicune has the power to summon Ho-Oh, so perhaps it will return at some point. As for the other Legendary Beasts, you’ll pretty much stumble upon them by luck because unlike in the original games the Pokedex in this game did not even register them as Seen despite the two occasions where you clearly saw them, so you can’t track them like standard roaming Pokemon via the Pokedex :/

[raiku] RAIKOU – The Thunder Pokemon

The goal is to reach the ladder which is in the northeast area. Make your way to the northwest frozen floor, slide onto the ice and after stopping next to the first stone on the left: slide down, left, up, right, down, left, up, left, down, right, down and right off the ice. On to the next frozen floor on the right: slide up, left, down and right to pick up HM07 Waterfall! Only one more Badge to get for it.

Return to the ice then slide up, right, down, left, up and off the ice to reach the final ladder back to 1F. Above you is a Protein and then by sliding onto the ice below from the left side you’ll get to a PP Up before continuing further down to the exit. We’ve made it!

Here we are at long last, the final stop on the Johto Gym Challenge and home of the Dragon tamer clan. Let’s look around for a bit before seeing Clair:

In the first house seen when you enter town is Emy who wants a Dragonair for her Dodrio Doris, which has Run Away and if traded for at Level 30 it will know Pursuit, Fury Attack, Tri Attack and Rage. Between the slopes on the left of the house you’ll find the Calm Mind Tutor.

In the PokeCenter you’ll find the Thunder Stone seller, P2100 per stone.

The southeast section of B1F in Ice Path (Secret Area) that was blocked by the angry Marowak previously leads to the exit which you’ll see in the southeast corner of Blackthorn. That Marowak is gone now and you can pick up a Sun Stone in that southeast section.

Outside the Mart on Saturdays you’ll meet Santos of the Week Siblings, he’ll give you a Spell Tag.

There’s a woman standing by the left side of the pond behind the Gym, that’s Keylee and she’ll battle you if you speak to her. Be prepared, her Pokemon are holding some nice items 🙂

Yeah…no Badge given because someone is a sore loser haha. Clair won’t admit defeat because she doesn’t believe you are ready for the League…and also because there’s trouble in Dragon’s Den that she wants you to sort out. Some gang members have been spotted there, which spells trouble for the 2 special Pokemon that call the place home. If you can get rid of that gang THEN Clair will give you the Badge. Shouldn’t she be leading the charge to deal with those people since they’re in her clan’s sacred place??

In the southeast corner there’s an Ultra Ball and then there’s a pool with some fast moving currents. Not much of a puzzle so you can easily reach the Fire Stone on the bottom right. Afterwards move up to take on the first of the Admins here – Zed.

Unlike Pokemon Mansion there are no wild Pokemon here. Head up to climb the stairs ahead.

On the tables you’ll find various diary entries from what sounds to be this place’s previous inhabitants.

Diary: 23 March
Moved into our new home. Unpacking our stuff and settling in.

In the room on the right are two staircases and a Dire Hit near the top staircase. The bottom staircase leads to the southeast side of 1F, there you’ll see an exit which leads to a section of SILVER CAVE!

What a nice surprise, eh? Getting a (very, very) little sampling of the famous training spot at this point in the game 🙂 This is where Flash is needed, get to the top of the steps on the left and pick up some Leftovers. That’s all, unless there are some Pokemon you want to catch, back into the hideout and descend the top staircase. I COMPLETELY missed this part when I first played through this game haha, not knowing that this is where Young Money is hanging out 🙂

The rocks turned into a Pokemon. We named the Pokemon Regirock!

Diary: 29 April
Regirock is too powerful. We had to seal it away. Regirock escaped and we decided to move out!

Back to 2F and in the room on the left there’s a hidden Fire Stone on the piece of rubble on the right and a Big Pearl just past the next table.

TEMPLE OF ROCK

If you see Axel just up ahead do not speak to him, just step out of the room and re-enter. He should be gone now. When you speak to him you would have gotten a game message related to NPCs. It was some kind of glitch in the copy of the game that I first played through (among a few other wacky glitches that popped up here and there). Be ready because further up you will be stopped by a trio of Admins that you’ll face one after the other. First Admin is Tosh then Dan follows.

Steve is the last one but Axel shows up just in time. He heals your team and urges you to move on while he faces Steve. You’ll gain control, a chance to check your team, before going on to meet the man in charge of this whole organisation – Russel. Another Ouka native who came here in search of Latios and Latias. Axel catches up and confronts him, after looking all over for him, and demands Russel to return what he stole from Axel: the Dragon Stone. Russel won’t give it back because he has found out that it has the power to tame Dragon Pokemon and now that he’s here with the Pokemon that he has been searching for, he’s good to go. Russel used to be part of the Army but dropped out at some point and changed into this power-hungry man!

Before Russel can take control of Latios and Latias, Axel punches him! Damn, why didn’t he do that earlier? Russel ends up dropping the Dragon Stone and the Pokemon start reacting to it, losing control of themselves in the process. Axel tells Russel that he can’t tame these Pokemon because he doesn’t have a pure heart. Russel puts an end to this operation and calls for a retreat, but picks up a feather from each Legendary before leaving. He hasn’t given up yet, he’s got plans for those feathers. After Team Saturn takes off, Axel regains the Dragon Stone and now you have to calm down Latios and Latias. Pick one that you’ll battle while Axel faces the other. They can be caught.

Afterwards the one which Axel battled flies away because it was too powerful for him to contain. He says he’ll wait for you “up top” so you can chat but he isn’t there once you return to the surface. Outside the Shrine Clair arrives and now that the gang problem has been taken care of (somewhat) she finally gives you the Rising Badge and TM24 Dragonbreath. You can scale waterfalls and all Pokemon will obey you now too. When you have a free spot in your party, speak to the Master in the Shrine and be rewarded with a Level 20 Dratini which has Shed Skin and knows Wrap, LEER, Thunder Wave and Twister. Yup, unfortunately there’s no quiz from the Master which would get you a Dratini that knows ExtremeSpeed like in the original games :/

Outside the Den you get a call from Prof. Elm, he has something for you back at the Lab. Before we travel south back to New Bark, let’s finish exploring Mt. Mortar first. Have a free spot in your party, go through the middle entrance, scale up the waterfall and head for the opening on the north side.

There’s a Rare Candy in the southwest corner and a Max Potion on a platform just northeast from the entrance. As for the Super Nerd on the one just northwest, don’t talk to him (even though that’s Hugh, the guy who had been missing). The only Pokemon he has is that “place holder” Question Mark icon ???????. You’ll also find that if you use the Good Rod here. Surf across the two pools in the southeast, then head west from there and Surf across the next pool. On the right is TM40 Defense Curl on a platform and further to the right is an Elixir below the next pool. Across the pool is a platform with an Escape Rope on it. Over on the northwest side is the last item, a Dragon Scale, on a platform and then a ladder in the corner that leads to the northern section of the Lower Cave.

The first item spotted right below is an Iron. Then make your way to the north side to pick up a Max Revive before heading for the ladder on the bottom left and descending to the northwest side of the basement. This is where the Karate King is doing his training 🙂 he’s got time to spare for a quick spar.

And what you find here is a maze that’s almost on the same level as Cerulean Cave’s B1F maze. Almost. This one has boulders to spice things up so you already know this is going to be a FUN time 🙂 The goal is to reach the north side where there is a prize worth the effort though and there are hidden mushrooms here too. Rolls up sleeves, adjusts shirt collar here we go:

You’ll start from the boulder puzzle in the southeast area, then move along the east wall until you can enter the middle area of the room. Right after pushing the boulder and reaching the middle area, turn north and check the rock above you for a hidden Big Mushroom (there will be screenshots for exact spots of course, given that there are a lot of rocks here).

Make your way to the southwest side to find another hidden Big Mushroom.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 dark cave 3f big mushroom 2

Just before reaching the boulder puzzle along the western wall check the rock on the bottom left of the boulders for Big Mushroom #3.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 dark cave 3f big mushroom 3

After getting through that puzzle you’ll see a lone rock just above the area of that puzzle, check it for a hidden Tinymushroom.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 dark cave 3f tinymushroom 1

Head to the right from there, clear away the boulders and continue further right, almost reaching the eastern wall. The lone rock that is close to the wall has hidden Tinymushroom #2.

Now head for the boulder puzzle near the northwest side. After getting through that you should be seeing what’s waiting on the north platform now – Jirachi 😀 before getting to it, go down into the small corridor of rocks south from the platform. Push the boulder there into the bottom gap between rocks so that you can get hidden Tinymushroom #3 from the rock on the left.

Phew, done. Ignore that hole on the upper left, you’ll have to use an Escape Rope or Dig out of here because that hole leads to the northeast side of the Route 39 room.

Back on Route 45, which is well known (and maybe disliked) for being split into two main lanes as it goes south. Unless you’ve got the ever-handy Walk through Walls codes, you’ll be going back and forth between this route and Blackthorn to cover everything.

As you might still remember, Gen 2 Victory Road was no longer the challenge that it was in Gen 1 because of cave-ins which happened between the two generations. It’s time to find out if that’s the case in this game. In the northeast section you’ll find a Full Heal and a Max Revive, then there’s the ladder in the northwest section.

MEGANIUM: Poison Powder, Razor Leaf, Body Slam, Reflect
or
TYPHLOSION: Ember, Smokescreen, Quick Attack, Flame Wheel
or
FERALIGATR: Bite, Scary Face, Rage, Water Gun

It would certainly qualify as his last stand because he finally begins to accept what Lance said to him. He decides to go off to train some more and says he’ll face you again when that is done. We are 9 generations into this giant franchise now and Silver remains my favourite Rival out of all the ones who have appeared in the games so far 🙂 although in terms of Rival Battle themes I can admit that Marnie’s theme is still at the top spot. BUT Silver tops the Rival Encounter themes (the original GSC version, not the HGSS version 😀 it just didn’t have same edge). Anyway, I digressed, we’re done with Victory Road! It wasn’t a challenge but there were some Trainers this time, that is appreciated. Head on out to Route 23 and the Indigo Plateau.

We’re back in New Bark. Prof. Elm calls you, there’s someone at the Lab that he wants you to see. Turns out to be the current Hoenn Champion Brendan! He’s surprised to hear that you beat the Johto League and so he decides to challenge you to a battle. This could’ve been much more special, a Champion vs Champion battle (maybe even for the Johto League title) saved for later on in the game.

Ticket, allowing you to board the S.S. Aqua from Olivine to Kanto but only when the red flag is up by the Pier. You’ll find the ship at the Harbor on Mondays and Fridays. Before we set off for the second stage of the adventure, there is one major thing you can do in Johto: battle the Gym Leaders in rematches. A nice perk of being the Champion. Indeed, the Gym Leaders have been busy and now they have full teams, Held Items for their Pokemon and healing items. You can face them in any order but I’ll list them in their original one:

Just before you reach the cabins a Gentleman bumps into you, he’s in a panic because his granddaughter has gone missing. Well, that’s your first little quest on board. Your cabin is on the far left, with a nice bed for healing the team and a working PC too (no Wi-Fi though). Don’t bother with the 3 cabins next door from yours, nobody’s there. Head for the southwest cabin to find Lyle.

Until you find this friend, the Sailor won’t let you pass. The friend, Stanly, was taking a nap in the cabin next to yours. He’s awake now but isn’t going back to work just yet.

So begins the Kanto chapter of your adventure. Johto had a lot of surprises, hopefully Kanto won’t disappoint. Let’s look around before taking on the Lightning Norwegian 🙂

The eastern exit of Vermilion has a BIG roadblock in the form of Snorlax (yup, we’re definitely in Kanto now 😀 dammit). No access to Diglett’s Cave or Route 11 until we find the means to move it.

The PokeFan Club is still up and running (but with fewer members now from the looks of things). The Chairman is still vocal about his favourite Pokemon, listen to him gush about Rapidash and afterwards he’ll give you a Rare Candy.

The eldest of the Fishing Guru family lives in the northwest house. He doesn’t give away any Fishing Rods, he just says if you manage to catch a Magikarp you can show it to his brother at the Lake of Rage (he’s hoping to see a big Magikarp, if the one you catch is big enough he’ll give you an Ether). If you go straight south from the door of the eldest’s house, you can search by the water’s edge for a hidden Max Ether.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 vermilion city max ether

There’s a Dive spot here as well, to give us a reason to return to Vermilion at some point.

The Kanto Office Block is where you can get the S.S. Ticket stamped for travel to the Orange Islands later. There’s also the “Special HQ” third floor which can’t be accessed yet, how curious. Outside the building, on the northeast side, is a Trainer who claims to be the best one in the city and is ready to challenge you but changes his mind after noticing that you don’t have the Earth Badge. The disrespect is real haha, not even being the current Johto Champion is enough to make him have second thoughts. For now just make a note of him, we’ll deal with him eventually.

Team Rocket may be out of the picture but according to one guy at the Mart another crew is here. Red flag, it could be Team you-know-who. That ends the tour, get ready for the Gym.

One down, 7 more to go. On the way out of town you meet up with Axel! What a surprise, I thought he returned to his home region? Well he’s here and was on his way to Saffron City but some Team Saturn guys were blocking the way. Surprise, surprise. Axel suspects that Team Saturn could be in Saffron for Silph Co. because it has information on Pokemon locations, so he wants you to meet him there. Forever being targeted, that’s Silph Co. 🙂 let’s move on north to Route 6.

It’s like we’ve stepped back in time, look at those Team Saturn Grunts blocking access to major places like they’re Rocket Grunts. The eastern Gate is blocked by a policeman who says the path beyond needs to cleared up, so in order to reach Lavender Town you have to go through Fuchsia City. Wow.

With Karate King Kiyo away in Johto, the Fighting Dojo is pretty much an empty place. Where are all the battle-ready Black Belts? Only one is present just to tell you what we already know and that item behind him is a Focus Band. Nothing else to be done so prepare for Silph Co.

At the end of the corridor is a Hyper Potion and a warp panel, you can’t have Silph Co. without them. Luckily this one is short range, it will take you to the southwest side of the room and if you’re unlucky like me you’ll warp straight into a battle!

The next warp panel is near the cleaning guy who is hiding at the end of the northwest corridor. It leads to TM41 Thunder Punch in the north room. The big machine above from the cleaning guy’s spot has a switch (Power Switch 3), turn it on before going to deal with the next Grunt near the stairway in the southeast area.

That’s a Full Heal on the left before you reach 3 warp panels: the bottom warp panel (I’ll name them to make things easier because there are plenty more. This will be Warp 1) leads to the southwest room which contains slide panels and another warp panel. That warp panel is linked to the top warp panel (Warp 3) of the first 3. The middle panel (Warp 2) will send you to the south corridor on the left with the column of upward-facing slide panels. That Scientist in the corner is NOT a Silph employee anymore.

There are items to be found while navigating this maze of panels so I’m going to cover how to get them first then we’ll go for the correct path out of this maze. To get back to the 3 warp panels after battling Rob, use the warp panel that you landed on in the south corridor. You’ll first get sent to an area that has 3 warp panels near each other (you’ll appear from the top warp panel). Step on that top warp panel and you’ll be back at the first 3. Now we begin the item hunt:

Use Warp 3 to return to the southwest room, then from there use the other warp panel and get sent to the northwest room. You’ll see TM01 Dynamic Punch near some containers on the left. Return to the first 3 warp panels, use Warp 2 back into Rob’s corridor. Go north along the corridor until you can turn right, that’s the area you appeared in after facing Rob earlier. Trevor and an Escape Rope are there, plus the machine that has Power Switch 2.

Scientist Trevor
((1 Hyper Potion))
Lv55 Voltorb [Electric]
Lv54 Electrode [Electric]

Prize: P3240

Turn the switch on. Of the 3 warp panels below him, ignore the top one. The one on the right leads to the west room (a.k.a the server room) where you’ll find a Max Revive. The bottom warp panel leads to the room just above the server room, the guy in there will give you a Kelpsy Berry and the warp panel next to him is connected to Warp 3. That’s all the items gotten, now make your way back to the Dynamic Punch room and use the warp panel that’s in the top left corner of that room (this will be Warp 4). It sends you to the corridor that is northeast from Trevor’s room, here you’ll find two lanes of slide panels. Go up along the corridor in between those two lanes to reach Warp 5. That takes you into the room which is on the left of the two lanes room.

Below him is an HP Up. Ignore the warp panel that’s next to the Grunt, go for the one which is on the far left from him (Warp 6). In the next room, there are 2 ways to deal with the Grunt that you’ll see on the left: either go to him directly or reuse the warp panel that you landed on to appear on the warp panel right next to him.

That item between the box and container on the right is an Ultra Ball and the upper left machine has Power Switch 1, turn it on.

Past him is a Nurse who is ready to heal your Pokemon. Use the warp panel that’s nearest to her (Warp 8). In the next area you’ll find one Carbos in the south room. Afterwards use the warp panel (Warp 9) that’s next to the one you landed on here. You’ll appear in the corridor between the Nurse’s room and the one you just came from. Continue south, you’ll find one Rare Candy, then north to an Admin watching Warp 10.

The next area is north of the Nurse room. There’s a container on the right from the warp panel, check the left side of that container for a hidden Ultra Ball.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 silph co. B1f area b ultra ball

Next to the container is an Iron. Use the warp panel that’s above the Iron spot (Warp 11) to reach the room directly north. Once you’re there, you’ll see one Calcium above you. That warp panel on the left from the Calcium spot is Warp 12 and it leads to a match against the Head Admin, but don’t go there yet. Continue to the left side of this area to fight a Grunt and find TM08 Whirlpool below him.

The switches you turned on along the way are connected to the shutter door just up ahead, where Axel is waiting. Had you not found those switches Axel was going to tell you to go back and find them 🙂 Beyond the door is Russel, Axel opens it and you go through just in time to see Russel searching through Silph Co.’s database. He finds out that Latios/Latias fled from Dragon’s Den to an island near Fuchsia City…but he’s not interested in just one of the Dragons. Then he finds information about the Regi Trio and that draws his attention now. And once again you are too late to stop him. Russel and Team Saturn leave before anything can be done. Damn. The Director of Silph Co. was being held hostage but he is free now and despite what happened he thanks you and Axel for saving the company and rewards you with a Master Ball each. Axel says he wants to see you before you leave town and then you return to the first floor. Speak to the security guard for another reward, an Up-Grade. The upper floors can’t be accessed and the basement has been closed so that’s Silph Co. done.

Citizens of Saffron are back on the streets now that Team Saturn is gone, allowing us to look around. Living next door to the PokeCenter are Brendan’s grandparents. The guy got a Pokemon from Prof. Oak but he didn’t like it so he left it with grandpa (who isn’t even a Trainer…). A bit of scumbag this Brendan guy haha, that Pokemon is a Level 5 Squirtle. Come back for it when you have a free spot in your party. The man walking about outside the house is the Thunder Wave Tutor.

Mr. Psychic still gives away Psychic TMs, be sure to pay him a visit if you want one. Copycat Girl still mimicks people but doesn’t need another Poke Doll for her collection. That’s it as far as exploring Saffron goes so prepare for the Gym. More warp panel action coming up, as if you didn’t get enough at Silph Co.

You’ll have to backtrack your way to the entrance room, there’s no exit warp panel in this room or you can walk through walls if you got the codes. We’re headed west because creator Linkandzelda and Zeikku one of the contributors are blocking the northern Gate exit. They want to see the Fuchsia Badge. Really guys? Just before entering the west Gate you’ll meet Axel and he reveals that the route south from Fuchsia is blocked by huge rocks. Which means we ain’t getting to that island near Fuchsia just yet, damn.

A nice and short route as usual, but this time the Underground Path has been closed for good by the Cerulean City Police. Originally it was because of too much Trainer battle action down there. Yeah, someone probably snitched and spoiled the fun as usual 🙂

From one big city to the other one right next door, how have these past 3 years treated Celadon? In the PokeCenter you’ll find hometown guy Eusine, he’s here to visit. In Crystal he would mention rumours about Ho-Oh appearing at the Tin Tower and then he returns to Ecruteak if Raikou and Entei have been caught. In this game once you’ve got the 3 Beasts, have them in your party then speak to Eusine to trigger that event. In my original playthrough I had completely missed this and thought that the Ho-Oh event was not in the game. After Eusine leaves, return to the Tin Tower and on the first floor speak to the Sage who is standing between the northern statues. He’ll give you the Rainbow Wing and stairs leading to the next floor will appear. Whenever you’re ready…

[ttow] TIN TOWER

-2F-

Nothing of note here, carry on down to the next set of stairs. No wild Pokemon in this version of the tower and no hidden items too.

-3F-

On the platform on the left is a Full Heal. The next stairs are on the northeast platform, just jump from platform to platform in a counter-clockwise fashion all the way there.

-4F-

From this northeast platform that you are standing on, you can see 3 lanes of ramps going down (the left one leads to the central platform). Along the middle lane of ramps there’s an Ultra Ball and if you travel along the right lane you’ll reach the southeast platform where there’s a Great Ball and stairs to 5F. Ignore the stairs and get to the southwest platform to pick up an Escape Rope then continue on to the northwest platform and climb the stairs there.

-5F-

Get to the north side of the room, jump over the first ramp then turn south and continue jumping over the next few ramps until you have to choose either to stick with the lane of ramps on the left or jump onto the central platform: there’s a Rare Candy on the central platform but if you go for it then you’ll have to make your way to the southeast platform, climb the stairs there back to 4F and come back to 5F. The correct path is to avoid the central platform and continue jumping over the ramps on the left, heading to the south platform.

-6F-

Next to the pillar is a Max Potion. Then go all the way round to the western side to the next stairs.

-7F-

The real fun begins here thanks to the warp panels which are present. On the northeast platform there’s a Max Revive. Use the warp panel on the north side to reach the central platform and once you are on it, step on the next warp panel.

-9F-

You’ll be sent to the eastern platform here. Get to the warp panels on the south platform, step on the left one.

-8F-

You’ll appear on the southeast platform. There’s a Nugget on the left platform. Return to 9F, step on the right warp panel to appear on 8F’s central platform where you’ll find a Max Elixir. Return to 7F and make your way to the warp panel on the south side. You’ll be sent to 8F’s western platform where there’s the next warp panel. It sends you to 9F’s north platform, you’ll find an HP Up between statues and the next warp panel on the left. That one sends you to 8F’s northern platform, there’s a Full Restore on the left and the final warp panel before it. You’ll appear on 9F’s central platform which has the stairs to the rooftop.

-ROOFTOP-

Go straight up to meet Ho-Oh.

[hooh] HO-OH – The Rainbow Pokemon
Level: 70
Type: Fire/Flying
Ability: Pressure
Moves: Recover, Fire Blast, Sunny Day, Swift

There’s no exit warp panel which appears on 9F’s central platform and you can’t Dig or use an Escape Rope either. It’s the long way out of the tower for you once you’re back outside return to Celadon.

On the second floor of Celadon Mansion you’ll find a guy selling Moon Stones for P1500 each. The Game Freak crew are on the top floor, if you complete the PokeDex you can come back to show the Game Designer. In the rooftop penthouse is a man who tells you a “scary” story and then gives you TM03 Curse as a reward for hearing it.

Maybe this might lead to Zane becoming a much more interesting character 🙂 the possibilities are endless, perhaps he could join a Team or MAYBE form his own. Anyway, we move on to Route 16.

Yes, Fuchsia’s most famous attraction is closed because the Warden is abroad. No Bug Catching Contests and no Safari Zone, double damn. His granddaughter is at the Warden’s house, she reveals that he simply quit his job and went overseas on vacation. What prompted that though?

In the house next to the PokeCenter you can receive a Level 5 Charmander if you have space in your party. Bill’s sister lives next to the Gym, she lets you know that their grandfather is the current resident at the Sea Cottage outside Cerulean City.

We were told about Route 19 by Axel, it is currently blocked because of the volcano on Cinnabar Island erupting and shooting out debris. Until the debris is cleared up, the only way to reach Cinnabar is from the west. We’re still a long way from doing that yet so forget about it. Get ready for Janine.

Janine is on the lower left side of the room. First Gym Trainer is Linda in the middle.

The once sombre town looks more lively now that it’s got a new attraction. What else is going on?

A Leaf Stone seller is in the Mart, selling them for P2100 each.

The Poke Flute tune had its own radio channel originally so now you find out that what you’ll require to deal with Snorlax is something called a PokeTar.

In the house just southwest from the Radio Tower is where the Starters can learn their ultimate moves. Sadly you can’t have all the Starters learn the moves, just the 3 best ones that you’ve got.

Mr. Fuji hasn’t returned to the Volunteer house, he went to the Soul House.

SOUL HOUSE

May the Souls of Pokemon Rest Easy

-1F-

You’ll find Axel here. Just like the other people present, he saw Mr. Fuji get sucked into the orange tombstone at the end of the room. There’s a Pokemon that Axel can see near the tombstone with a Silph Scope, he’ll give it to you to use and after seeing the Pokemon you’ll get attacked! Catch or defeat it!

GENGAR – The Shadow Pokemon
Level: 50
Type: Ghost/Poison
Ability: Levitate
Moves: Shadow Punch, Dream Eater, Destiny Bond, Shadow Ball

The battle is so epic that it leads to the Silph Scope being destroyed. A stairway suddenly appears where the tombstone was, Axel urges you to go downstairs and rescue Mr. Fuji. Axel wonders if this has to do with Team Saturn. Red Flag right there.

Only ghosts appear down here and they can’t be identified because you just lost the very device which can identify them! face palm so Run or Repel your way to Mr. Fuji. He’s unharmed, he found himself down here after examining the tombstones on 1F. The Ghost-types here warned him that something bad was going to happen to Lavender. When you return to 1F you find out that a wild Zapdos has appeared and is on top of the Radio Tower! A wild and out of control Zapdos. Even Axel wants none of that, he says he’ll stay in the Soul House for safety reasons.

KANTO RADIO TOWER

-1F-

No broadcasts are happening until the Power Plant situation is sorted out, which is why the one Gentleman (Director) is freaking out. You’ll find an Escape Rope behind the plant in the recording booth. The Music Director is in the booth too, letting you know that the EXPN Card is required for you to catch Kanto’s radio stations. Too bad the radio doesn’t work. Go straight up to the rooftop, the security guard is there watching Zapdos as it sits on top of the Transmission Room building. Approach it and just when it seems like Zapdos is going to attack, it flees instead. Huh, how strange. Then there’s a loud noise from inside the tower, follow after the guard and discover that Team Saturn is in town and it looks like they’ve taken over the tower!

Taking a break from chasing after Pokemon, Team Saturn came here to broadcast a message to Team Rocket and call them out. The response is swift and a couple of Grunts arrive, led by their new boss Silver! You would think it makes some sense given who Silver is related to…but in this universe Silver is Russel’s son instead! What a plot twist. Where’s Giovanni then for this bombshell revelation? Silver has taken over Team Rocket and now it looks like he’s stronger than ever before. As for Russel he has a new enemy to deal with now. Things have really gotten interesting. After both Teams leave, the Director thanks you for saving the tower with a cool P10000. But as long as the Power Plant is still down, the tower’s troubles aren’t over just yet. Outside you’ll find Axel, who missed out on all the action since he was hiding. Despite that though, he’ll challenge you to a battle just to see how much you’ve improved. Doesn’t sound too worried about Team Saturn and the “new” Team Rocket causing trouble around Kanto, does he?

We find yet another roadblock, this time it’s a Scientist standing by the Rock Tunnel entrance. He won’t move because there’s a fight between explorers which is going on inside the cave – a fight over fossils that they found. I kid you not 🙂 until that fight is over, no Rock Tunnel action for you from this side. So back to Lavender and head west to Route 8.

Home of the second Kanto Gym and of one friend to a certain Trainer who is forever 10 years old (but FINALLY became a “Pokemon Master” after 20 years haha). What’s good in Cerulean?

The Bike Shop is closed since the new business is now in Goldenrod. Behind the northwest houses you’ll find the Water Stone seller (P2100 per stone). In the northeast part of town is the home of the Sticker collecting big sister that we heard about in Cianwood. Pick something to brag about and she’ll give you a fancy Sticker to pimp up your Trainer card. Xzibit would be proud. Outside that house is a little boy, that’s the Light Screen Tutor. Is he old enough to be teaching moves…?

Oddly enough, the Gym is empty. Where’s everyone? Let’s check Cerulean Cape, perhaps Misty is there (and not occupied with a date). On the way north to Nugget Bridge you’ll meet Zane and his full team. He has been challenging the Kanto Gyms and now he believes he is ready to put this rivalry to rest!

Just when it seemed like he was going in a new direction he’s back to typical Rival mode, vowing to defeat you next time. But he has a gift you, HM08 Dive! That’s very generous of him, considering he aims to almost murder your Pokemon in the next match 🙂 the HMs have all been obtained now but you need the Earth Badge in order to use Dive outside of battles.

Follow the path all the way to the bottom right to pick up an Escape Rope. Return to 1F and Surf west then south to a spot that is dotted with breakable rocks. You’ll find a Red Shard among them. On the western rocky platform there’s a Star Piece and a ladder near it which leads to a 2F corridor that ends with a Max Repel. In the top right corner of the southeastern rocky platform is a Guard Spec. and the ladder near it leads to a corridor that ends with a Max Ether. Before climbing the ladder at the center of 1F, check the rock on the left side of the ladder’s platform for a hidden Ultra Ball.

Back in the maze, go along the first turn that you’ll reach and head south until you reach 3 paths: a left path which is blocked by a rock, a south path and a right path). Enter the right path and stick with it all the way to the northwest side where there’s a ladder back to 1F. After that ladder is the one which leads to the basement.

Among the rocks in the northeast corner is a Parlyz Heal. Then over on the southwest platform where Mewtwo would usually be found, you’ll find a DNA Sample (it’s not actually show, you have to press A on the tile in between the two rocks to pick it up). It’s the very first time I’m finding this, because during my original playthrough I didn’t check that spot after not finding what I thought might be down here (Mewtwo). The thought of checking for an unseen item hadn’t even crossed my mind 🙂 but I am more careful now in my walkthroughs. The description for the DNA Sample just points out where it is from and states that its use is unknown. Because this game is incomplete, the DNA Sample will remain just a Key Item that you carry around. According to creator LaZ it was meant to be related to an NPC on Mandarin Island, which is where the current update ends. Exit the cave and continue to Route 25.

Damn, even the usual dating spot by Cerulean Cape is empty. What’s going on here? Bill’s grandfather is in the Sea Cottage though, house-sitting while Bill is away in Johto. If today is Wednesday then you can play the TM Finder mini game in the cave behind the cottage. It involves using a breakable shovel to dig around for TMs. Any TMs that you manage to find before the shovel reaches its limit are yours. P2000 to play the game, but if you say No after he asks you to play he’ll drop the price to P1000 since you know his grandson 🙂

Well since Misty isn’t here, only one place remains for us to check so return to Cerulean and head east to Route 9. Bring Pokemon that know Cut, Surf and Waterfall.

Then you’ll reach the river that flows south to Route 10 and the Power Plant. Continue on land, heading south to find a Burn Heal among some trees before reaching the PokeCenter and Rock Tunnel’s entrance. A Scientist in the PC reveals that the Power Plant’s Manager needs the help of a strong Trainer because something has been stolen from there. Heal up and return to the river, Surf onto the northern bank where you’ll find TM40 Defense Curl and the entrance to what we’ll call “Route 9 Cave”.

No sign of Misty outside or inside the Power Plant, but Axel is there and he confirms what we’ve heard about something being stolen: it’s a part which the new generator requires. Axel suspects that Team Rocket is responsible for the theft. On the way to the generator room to speak with the Manager, you’ll find a Scientist seated on one of the blue seats. This is Forest, he wants to trade his Magneton Maggie for a Dugtrio. Maggie will be holding a Big Mushroom. The Manager is boiling mad about the situation, too furious to be of much help so go back to Axel and leave. As you do, the policeman standing near the entrance shares some information that he has received about an odd character who has been spotted in Cerulean. Bingo. Return to Cerulean and enter the Gym, you’ll bump into the suspect as he dashes for the exit – a foreign-sounding Rocket Grunt who is in a rush to get to Cinnabar Island. At least he isn’t rude like the usual Grunt 🙂 after he leaves, go over to the central section of the walkway and check the top left corner, you’ll find the Machine Part. Back to the Power Plant, return the Machine Part to the Manager and receive TM07 Zap Cannon as a reward. Axel learns about what the Rocket Grunt said and sets Cinnabar Island as his next destination, which could be where Team Saturn are as well. Axel says he’ll find a way to access Diglett’s Cave too. Fingers crossed for that. With the generator up and running again, the Magnet Train can resume its services and the Kanto Radio Tower can broadcast. Go back to the tower and receive the Program from the Director. You are to deliver it to the other Director in the Johto Radio Tower. But you need a Pass first for the Magnet Train, and the person who will give you one is the Copycat Girl in Saffron. Go and speak to her, she says she lost one of her dolls in Vermilion and if you can retrieve it for her she’ll give you the Pass. The doll is the Clefairy Poke Doll in the Pokemon Fan Club. Speak to the man sitting next to it to receive the Doll then return it to Copycat Girl. You’ll get the Pass, then go board the Magnet Train back to Johto to deliver the Program. The Director will give you the PokeTar as thanks.

Return to Kanto and then Cerulean’s Cape, this time Misty is there and is on that secret date 🙂 Right on cue, as soon as you arrive, Misty’s date runs off. Misty confronts you for spoiling things but once she sees your Johto Badges she gets back to business and will await your challenge at the Gym. Who was that guy anyway…?

Continue south to a few slopes, in between them you’ll find a Dire Hit, and then there’s a Gate occupied by one of Prof. Oak’s Lab Aides. Further down from the Gate, at the bottom of a few more slopes is an Elixir. Then Cut the skinny tree on the left and step into the green city.

It’s been MANY years since I followed the anime or snapped my fingers in tune to that 2 B A Master album, but I gotta ask – is Viridian City still the only city which actually got its own song? Some of you might remember it, that one “I’m on the road to Viridian City.” Perhaps some other cities from later generations got their own songs. Anyway, I digressed, welcome to Viridian 🙂 We’ll have a look around, then travel south to Pallet Town before turning north to cover Pewter City and beyond. When it’s time to travel to Cinnabar Island we’ll just Fly back to Pallet and carry on.

The snoozing guy by the southwest pond will give you TM42 Dream Eater.
At the Trainer House you get to battle a clone of yourself (a.k.a Cal) once per day. The clone has the same Pokemon you have, same levels, same number of party members. Original Cal would just have the fully evolved Johto Starters.

The new Gym Leader isn’t around. Apparently he’s some guy from Pallet Town. I wonder who that is…

To the west of town is Route 22 which would begin the road to the Indigo Plateau during its hey day. Now? Not really.

At the Lab you’ll find Prof. Oak and he is happy to see that you are in Kanto now. Once you’ve collected all the Kanto Gym Badges you must see Oak again.

All but one of the Johto Legendary Pokemon have now been caught, only the Ilex Forest Guardian remains. Exit the chamber and climb the ladder on the right, it will take you to the lower section of the southwest island. Surf to the left to climb the next ladder (leads to the lower section of the northwest island, a closed off room) then climb one more ladder to a room which lies in between B1F and B2F. Head up the corridor to the exit back into B1F. Now you’ll appear in the central area of B1F, jump down the ledge to reach the Escape Rope down below and continue to the bottom left to climb a ladder which leads to the southwest island’s upper section. Surf to the right where you’ll find an Ultra Ball and a ladder going back to B1F. This time you’ll be on the southeast side, head to the right and get onto the rocky platform to pick up a Calcium. The ladder below leads to the southeast island’s cave, ignore it. Instead, use the Escape Rope to exit out of the northeast island cave then go back inside and get onto the rocky platform, there’s another Ultra Ball there next to a ladder. Climb it and appear on the northeast side of B1F. Go down and jump over the ledge heading to the left to pick up a Full Restore before climbing onto the northwest rocky platform. Ignore the ladder in the upper left corner and head down to get off the platform and pick up the Carbos on the bottom left. Climb onto the south rocky platform and descend the ladder on it back to B2F to pick up a Max Elixir and another Full Restore. That covers everything, no hidden items like in the original Crystal. Exit and return to Pewter then get ready for the trip to Mt. Moon.

Silver is quick to remind you that he’s no longer concerned about you, there are bigger things now for him to worry about such as leading Team Rocket. Despite this though, he still wants to prove himself against you.

He accepts his defeat but things are not done for him, there’s something major about to happen which he hints at. We’ll have to watch out for that and Silver too since he’s got Team Rocket backing him now. In the version of the game which I played previously there was some kind of glitch here which would make Silver ambush you whenever you entered Mt. Moon, whether you were from Route 3 or from Route 4. He wouldn’t be shown but his pre-battle dialogue will start up and then you battled him again. The glitch looks to be absent from this version of the game that I’m currently playing (I got it from romhacking.net). After Silver leaves, go to the right and climb the ladder up then out to Mt. Moon Square.

Pineco [Bug] (Level 10, Rate 95%)
Clefairy [Normal] (Levels 20-29, Rate 5%) {Moon Stone 5%}

On the right you’ll see a Scientist standing by another entrance. He’s checking inside for fossils so you’ll have to come back later. On the left is a shop with a few knick-knacks:

Poke Doll P1000
Fresh Water P200
Soda Pop P300
Lemonade P350
Repel P350

The Lass who is here mentions that Clefairy show up after sundown, possibly in the flower field next to the shop. This refers to the two Clefairy who appear in the field on Mondays at 9pm. They will dance around a rock until they see you and run away, leaving behind the rock for you to smash and get a Moon Stone from it. Southeast from the shop is a 3rd entrance, this one is not blocked at least, go in to pick up a Calcium before climbing the ladder back to 1F. You’ll be near the southeast corner, there’s an X Accuracy near the ladder. Jump down the ledge and head for the exit.

Yup, just a PokeCenter now. You’ll find Axel and Viridian’s Gym Leader Blue on the north side and receive some bad news. Axel has not found any sign of Teams Rocket and Saturn here even though both have shown interest in Cinnabar. It doesn’t make sense to him but he wonders if maybe the Regis might have to do with it. As for Blue, he’s not in the mood to battle anyone at the moment but he is curious about the small opening in the rockwall just above him. Examine it and knock the rocks away to create an entrance into the volcano. This motivates Axel and he hurries right in to continue searching for the Teams. Get ready and follow after him.

Up front there’s Axel, Silver, Russel…and some McDonald’s? *record scratch* wait, what?? Apparently Celadon has a McDonalds branch that we find out about here and now, Silver bought some takeaways there at some point and now Axel wants to have a bite. An apple pie was part of the meal but Russel “had it on reserve” and ate it already, what’s going on here?? Then everyone gets back on script, Axel won’t let Russel take the Regis, which are just up ahead and have not awakened yet. Russel had not expected to find them like that so he decides to take out his frustration on you. Doesn’t even share some of that Mac food with you, that’s not fair!

After being defeated a 3rd time Russel has finally had enough and in a shocking move he decides to disband Team Saturn, much to the surprise of his Grunts. Russel is moving to Sinnoh to cause trouble there and show Team Galactic how that’s done. Silver won’t join him, he’s staying to continue leading Team Rocket since Giovanni isn’t around to do that. Then you get a little note from creator LaZ which says that some of the Saturn Grunts did not go away just because the crew is no more…they’ve got other plans. Red flag. Back to you and Axel, he also can’t believe just happened. But the surprises don’t stop there because the Regis suddenly wake up and fly off! Wow, that timing though! At least they won’t be anywhere near Team Saturn. Axel says goodbye, maybe for good this time? He wasn’t a typical annoying Rival character but he could’ve been more helpful during this Team Saturn fight, you know? Just a little bit. Exit the volcano and speak to Blue again, this time the chat is enough to motivate him to return to the Gym and await your challenge. On the southeastern side of the island is another entrance into the volcano, be ready because you’ll meet Monkey D. Cooltrainer as soon as you walk in.

I guess as a sign of some progress the Gym Guide arrives after the battle, having not found the actual Gym on Cinnabar. If there weren’t so many remakes from Nintendo, it would’ve been nice to have “revisit” games instead to show how the older regions look like in the current generation. Maybe that’s how we would find out if things got better for Blaine and Cinnabar. Only one Badge remains but let’s continue along the sea route and cover the rest of it before returning to Viridian.

He is interested in having a rematch and says you should come back when you are stronger. I’m not sure if this is just typical dialogue or if it’s possible to face him again later, we’ll check up on him. There is one more backtrack run which can be done now that you can Dive, but let’s save that for after we cover Mt. Silver. Return to Pallet Town and get permission from Prof. Oak then back to Viridian and go out through the door at the end of the left side corridor in the Pokemon League Front Gate.

Previously he would throw a fit after losing, but funny enough this time he accepts the loss and admits that he doesn’t mind losing. Lol, what’s up with that? Is he no longer going to the Dark Side? As you would expect, Zane makes it clear that there will be a next time and then off he goes. I thought he would go back into the mountain to continue searching for Red. It’s now up to you to do that so here we go.

Turn left and scale up the waterfall, on the upper left of it there’s a PP Up and just north of the waterfall is an opening to a small room. Inside is a man identified as Mister G. He rushes up to you in an attempt to capture you, but then he realises that you are not the person he was expecting so he tells you to run along and not interrupt whatever is going on here. He also mentions that two of his associates are in the cave too. Not good, who are these shady characters anyway? On the left is a Max Revive. Exit the room, Surf back to the entrance side of 2F and before going up the steps you can grab the Ultra Ball on the right. As you ascend the platform after the steps you’ll see an opening on the left that is unreachable from this side. It’s the opening you came out of from the Team Saturn Hideout in Dragon’s Den. At the top of the platform, get in the water on the right and scale up the waterfall to the northeast platform, you’ll find a Calcium and an opening to another room. In there is Mister H, who is also expecting someone else and since you’re not “him” he tells to mind your business and NOT to enter the north room. How rude. Also in this room with Mister H you’ll find a Full Restore on the right. Exit and go through the north opening.

Waiting for you here is Mister R, not the other R who should be here. These 3 old guys are just here in hope of battling Red and soundly defeating him, so since you are not Red Mister R tells you to leave and go face the Elite 4 in rematches. Initially I thought he was joking but he is not and the Gentlemen trio won’t leave Silver Cave until you’ve gone through the League again. Exit Silver Cave and return to the League. Everyone has levelled up, filled out their teams and of course each Pokemon is holding Leftovers 🙂 did you expect anything less?

Despite that this is a remake of Crystal (with lots of extras) I think it would’ve been nice to defend the Championship against a new challenger. A familiar face that we have not met until now (Kris? Ethan?) or someone new who has just defeated former Champ Lance and is waiting to fight you now. But sadly no, you battle Lance again. You know how those damn championship contracts work: they have a rematch clause so that former champions don’t have to wait until the next pay-per-view for a rematch…which might not even main event the darn thing! 🙂

Title defence successful, roll credits for a second time and you’re back in New Bark. Get ready and return to Silver Cave. The 3 Gentlemen are standing by the opening to the summit and this is after the guy they were all waiting for finally showed up and walloped them in a 1 vs 3 encounter. Vicious. Carry on to the summit and meet Red. No Leftovers or other items being held by his Pokemon, just good old fashioned Full Restores. Good luck.

And in classic Red style he leaves without a word. Until the final main game in the final generation of Pokemon is released someday, I believe Red’s journey is still ongoing. That’s one way of maintaining the aura and mystique of this character now that Ash Ketchum’s journey of over 20 years is done 🙂 After the battle you’ll receive a surprise phone call from Axel. What the…I thought he left for good, he’s still around lol. He wants to meet with you right away at the Office Block in Vermilion. That’s where we’ll go to move things along but first let’s get that Dive backtrack run out of the way. Bring Pokemon that can use Waterfall.

THE GREAT-ISH BACKTRACK: DIVE EDITION

/VERMILLION CITY\
– The Dive spot is just south of the PokeCenter on the northwest side of the city. Beneath the surface is another Undersea Cavern.

-AREA 9-

Get in the water and make your way to the southeast side where there’s an opening with a signpost outside that says “Type Master Dojo”. If you continue along that slope down from the Dojo opening you’ll reach a 3rd opening that leads to the northwest room of Section A, where there’s a pool that resurfaces just off of Cianwood’s northern beach. Next to that pool are 2 piles of rocks and 2 whole rocks, check to top right pile for a hidden Stardust.

Go through the Dojo opening, you’ll arrive in Section A’s northeast room where there’s a Metal Coat plus a hidden Tinymushroom…

…and a hidden Pearl in the crater just below it.

[typemd] TYPE MASTER DOJO

That signpost outside also said “Challenge if you dare!”, and that’s not a joke because here you will face 17 Trainers who each specialise in one type. Back to back battles against these Type Masters who have full teams of Level 100 Pokemon, Full Restores and held items. You cannot use items during the battles but your Pokemon will be healed after every 4th battle. If you lose, you will be teleported back to the last PokeCenter that you visited. In-game saving during the challenge cannot be done, no problem with state saving however. Defeat all the Type Masters and earn a prize. No time limit and you can go for the challenge as many times as you want. There is a PC available in the main room and an odd hole in the ground on the right from the front desk. Your playable character wonders about it if you take a look. If you’re ready just speak to the front desk attendant and issue the challenge to get started, or you can come back later when you think you’re ready. Here’s what you will be up against:

I suspect that the prizes are randomised because the very first prize I received was a Sun Stone and now I’m given a Slowpoketail lol, which is an item wild Relicanth in this game have a 5% chance of holding by the way. What’s up with that? Afterwards or if you’ve decided to save the challenge for later, exit the Dojo and return to Area 7 then go through the northeast opening. You’ll appear on the southeastern side of Area 8, go straight up to the next opening and end up in a room of Section A. As soon as you arrive check the rock on the right for a hidden Shoal Shell.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 undersea cavern section a upper middle shoal shell

A few paces to the left is an opening, ignore it but check the rock that is second to the left from that opening, you’ll find a Dive Ball. Further to the left is a pool that takes you to a spot just east of the Olivine Lighthouse. Below the pool is another opening and 4 rock piles, check the top right pile for a hidden Star Piece.

Go through the opening back to Area 8, you’ll appear on the northwest slope. Enter the next opening on the left.

A few paces forward you’ll see 3 rocks in between 2 piles of rocks, check the rock on the left for a hidden Stardust.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 undersea cavern section e stardust

Continue going north until you reach 2 piles of rocks that will be on the left side of the path, check the bottom pile of a hidden Pearl.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 undersea cavern section e pearl

The path leads to the next opening, which takes you to the southeast side of this area. Once you’re there get in the water and Surf down the small waterfall on the right. You’ll see a water corridor heading north, it leads to a spot where you can resurface in Mt. Mortar’s basement. Pass the water corridor and continue Surfing to the right into some fast currents that will send you down a waterfall.

-AREA 11-

There are 2 things of note here: an opening which is on the right and a resurface spot in between currents on the south side of the room. Both options are one-way paths which lead to Dragon’s Den but right now we’ll head for the opening on the right, so make a note of how to get back here because we’ll return for the resurface spot later. To reach the opening just Surf to the right into the currents facing east. The opening leads to a small room that has a pool, Dive in and appear in a second small room which has a ladder.

Swinub [Ice/Ground] (Levels 33-36, Rate 100%) {Aspear Berry 50%}

DRAGON’S DEN (via Underwater Cavern)

Just up ahead is a one-way pool that leads back to Dragon’s Den’s main area, ignore it for now and continue on up to the north side. Get onto the rocky platform and circle round to the southwest side and pick up a Ruby. Back to the north side and go southeast on the platform until you can get down to ground level then head up to pick up TM29 Psychic. A very interesting find, that Ruby, what could it be for? Return to the one-way pool and we can finally get out of here. Once you’re back in Dragon Den’s main area, exit and head for the Lake of Rage.

A small underwater cave, just make your way to the south side and pick up another curious Key Item – Meteorite. As you should remember, in R/S/E you would give it to Professor Cozmo and receive TM27 Return in exchange. In this game unfortunately the Meteorite is related to something which was not completed, this is what creator LaZ told me when I asked about it. That ends the Great Dive Backtrack. If you need to do some extra training, especially if you decided not to face the Type Masters until later, how about facing the Kanto Gym Leaders in rematches?

Afterwards return to Vermilion and see Axel standing outside the Office Block. You’ll follow him inside, watch him flip a switch behind the left poster on 1F (?) to reveal an elevator that takes both of you to the International Police Secret Base a.k.a Special HQ (??) and you find out that Axel is an undercover officer who was dispatched from here (?!). Wow, did you see that coming? And here I thought he’s just some random dude from a faraway region I’ve never heard of lol. Axel needs your help because some information has come in about Team Rocket possibly being behind a number of attacks which are set to happen soon. Accept Axel’s offer and find out that the first target is the Seafoam Islands. He says he’ll meet you there and leaves. Bring a Pokemon that knows Strength.

Unknown to the Executive, you have the Unlocker so the door isn’t much of a problem. The next area has no wild encounters but this is where we find Silver, Articuno…and Zane (?!). This Zane guy is full of surprises haha he’s been all over the place, but this? Shocking. Silver believes he has control over Articuno and tries to order it, but the Legendary flies away instead. Axel shows up to stop Silver, it doesn’t work because he and Zane run off. Whatever big plan Silver is cooking up he is certain it will continue on schedule regardless. Axel has noticed that some kind of technology is controlling Articuno and he fears the worst. He returns to Special HQ after telling you to go back there too. After Axel leaves you can pick up the Macho Brace in the bottom right corner. Zane is collaborating with Team Rocket now? Damn, what is the world coming to??

Back at the Office Building just stand in front of the 1F poster and you’ll automatically make your way to Special HQ. Speak to Axel and learn that the next attack is going to be at Mt. Moon. Head over there and find Axel on 1F, waiting for you to clear things up (again haha). Why doesn’t he help out though? Grunt #1 is on the right and Grunt #2 is south from him.

Silver and Zane are just up ahead facing Zapdos. Silver tests out the unknown technology on Zapdos but that fails and Zapdos is gone. Axel arrives and for a second time doesn’t catch the bad guys. I’m starting to wonder how exactly did Axel qualify to become an undercover officer, his track record so far is a little sketchy. So it’s back to Special HQ and we find out that the next operation will take place in the Safari Zone. Interesting, now we get a chance to see if anything has changed there after 3 years. Load up on Balls, there won’t be any Step Counter or Safari Balls to worry about. Axel will be in the Safari Zone main building, staying behind to keep watch.

Third time should be the charm for Silver but Zane gives him the bad news about Moltres not being controlled and it flies off. Team Rocket escapes as well just as Axel shows up and tells you that there’s no more information about other attacks so things are cool for now. You can stop by Special HQ anytime too. The Safari Zone will remain “open” also in case you were hoping to come back and catch Pokemon. More good news: now that the Legendary Birds are out in the world we only need to know where exactly to look for them. Articuno is in the frozen final room of Ice Path’s “Secret Area” (reached by Surfing south along the Route 44 river, remember?).

As for Zapdos it is in one place we haven’t explored yet – Rock Tunnel. The Route 10 entrance north of Lavender Town is still blocked so enter from Route 9. Bring a Pokemon that knows Flash of course. Rock Smash too, but it is optional.

Just a corridor here, head straight up and through the opening in the wall to a very familiar place…

[oldp] OLD POWER PLANT

…which isn’t as dangerous as the Power Plant we know of because only one Pokemon occupies this version. But on the bright side it means you can blaze through the place while picking up items on the way up to the northwest room. Head straight up from the entrance then enter the first room on the right, you’ll find an Ultra Ball in there. Go straight down to the southwest room to pick up a Max Revive. Over in the southeast room there’s a Hyper Potion. From the southwest room go up into the central room for an HP Up and then head up from the southeast room into the northeast room for an Elixir. Reach the north room then go straight down into the small room that has 3 machines on the right, there’s a Full Heal in there and a hidden Max Elixir on the tile below the tallest machine. Continue to the northwest room to find a Max Repel and the thunder bird.

[zap2] ZAPDOS – The Electric Pokemon
Level: 45
Type: Electric/Flying
Ability: Pressure
Moves: Thundershock, Thunder Wave, Agility, Detect

**NOTE: For some unknown reason, Zapdos does not appear in the copy of the game which I’ve been playing for this walkthrough. I checked one of the map editor programs that I’ve got and sure enough Zapdos is indicated as an event here. No idea why it isn’t there, perhaps it’s a glitch? Very, very strange.

The doorway on the left leads back to the Route 9 cave, you can pick up a Magnet there. Check the middle tile by the big turbine machine in the room where Zapdos was/should be, there’s a hidden Thunder Stone. Then return to B1F of Rock Tunnel and climb the northwest ladder. Next you’ll appear on the south side of 1F. Head to the left and before getting to the couple of Scientists further on, there’s a rocky platform that you can climb onto which has an Elixir. The Scientists, Bob and Jeff, are the ones that we heard about a while ago who are fighting over Fossils. As their argument goes on, you go ahead and snatch both Helix and Dome Fossils! Hilarious haha, this does not go down very well with Jeff.

One battle is enough to make him give up, he runs off and Bob leaves after him. The exit is just below. Didn’t Rock Tunnel have some Trainers back in the day? Where’d they go? The place seems so empty without them. The Fossils could’ve been revived by the machine at the Goldenrod Science Center but it isn’t working. The Scientist who operates it doesn’t even offer a clue about how to get it started up. Exit Rock Tunnel, outside you might see a special Ace Trainer named Dgr (I found him on Friday mornings).

Let’s go back to Special HQ. Things can only remain peacefully for so long before trouble starts up again and right on cue the next big mission pops up: you receive an urgent message from Lance about meeting him at Dragon’s Den. Axel already suspects that Team Rocket could be involved and he tells you to go on ahead while he tries to gather more information. Bring Pokemon than know Strength and Rock Smash.

As soon as you arrive back in the main area of Dragon’s Den you’ll find Lance standing in front of a new opening on the left. Axel’s suspicions were spot on, Team Rocket is involved and they have gotten into the sacred grounds of Dragon’s Den. Before you go in, Lance brings forward someone that he wants you to meet – Giovanni! He reveals that Russel being Silver’s father was just a cover and that Giovanni came here to stop Silver. But he failed and has been injured as a result. Lance says he and Clair cannot enter the sacred grounds, so while they take Giovanni to the hospital you will have access to the sacred grounds. Good guy Giovanni, eh? It’s definitely new.

The final area. Here we find Silver, Zane and their newest target – Groudon! But since you took care of the Super Executives on the way here, Silver’s plan to become the Ultimate Pokemon Master falls apart. This is also the point where Zane finally says he’s done with this operation. He joined Team Rocket in order to become strong enough to defeat you, not to tag along and watch Silver mistreating Pokemon and go as far as hurting Giovanni. Silver isn’t bothered, he orders Groudon to attack Zane and afterwards Zane apologises to you for what has happened. He heals your team just before you face off against Silver one more time.

…Several reloads later…

You’ll be back in New Bark. Take a step forward and a phone call starts up, from an unknown number. You’ll be asked to choose between answering it and not. Answer the call, because it’s from Prof. Oak. He wants your help with something, so you should see him at his Lab. Before we head back to Kanto, let’s check those Sacred Grounds one more time. In each of the spots where you defeated a Super Executive you’ll find the Regi that they had. Each of them is at Level 70.

At the Lab, Oak tells you about his friend Prof. Ivy who lives on Valencia Island in the Orange Archipelago. She has found a mysterious Poke Ball that she can’t figure out, so Oak would like to try with the help of the scanners in his Lab. He can’t leave the place so you’ll be heading over to the Orange Islands to pick up this unknown Ball for him. A literal fetch quest 🙂 unbelievable. Before you can travel there, you’ll need to get your S.S. Ticket stamped at the Office Block then you can board the Undersea Express on Route 100. Return to the Office Block, go to 2F and speak to the woman behind the south desk to get that ticket stamped. Then go see Axel in Special HQ. The gift he has for you is the HQ Badge, which makes you an official member of Special HQ! Nice, given all the work you’ve done for HQ so far maybe you’ll move up the ranks in no time 😀 Axel goes on to tell you about a Battle Facility that HQ runs in another region, he’s hoping you could be a part of it by helping to recruit Trainers for the place. The one hint that Axel offers about the kinds of people to be recruited is that they are Trainers you have faced before, with some of them training in hidden areas. According to LaZ this is a feature which never got finished, there would’ve been a place on the last island in the Orange Islands where you could compete in tournaments against special Trainers such as Prof. Oak and Prof. Elm.

Hopefully you’ve stocked up on items and Ultra Balls, it’s time to set off for the Orange Islands. Return to Route 100 (if you’ve been there already, you can just Fly there from Kanto). In the station flash the stamped ticket at the security guard, make your way to the next building and get on the train. The trip goes smoothly until the train suddenly stops after hitting something. One of the passengers thinks that “something” could be a Pokemon (!). There’s a PC in the upper right corner if you need to sort out your team. After the passengers stop panicking, speak to the Officer and despite your offer to help he won’t let you go out to investigate. So being a 2-time Hall of Famer doesn’t count for much here, eh? The passenger who is seated near the PC steps forward and volunteers to investigate the matter with you, this is former Gym Leader Jin. Interesting, which Gym did he lead before? SAVE before leaving the train because once you catch up with Jin outside you’ll get into a battle event.

Jin is impressed by your battle against the Legendary, although he regrets not doing that himself and showing off his Manectric. The Officer shows up after overhearing Jin mention Manectric and tells you that the train has lost power. Both of its engines need a jump start from two Electric-types. Jin and Manectric will go deal with the left side engine while the right side engine is for you. Add an Electric-type to your party then stand by the front of the train and Press A. The engines are started back up again and the trip to Valencia can resume. Jin bids you goodbye and says maybe you two will meet again on the island.

At the next station you’ll find a special platform reserved for Special HQ but despite that you’re part of the team now you can’t board the train which is there. I’m guessing this was something planned for the completed game? Welcome to the Orange Islands!

According to the signboard on the left this is South West Port and just to the east is the entrance to Corsola Cave. Further north lies Essence Town. A policeman is blocking the entrance and won’t let anyone inside because there has been some recent gang activity. Damn, which gang could it be this time? Team Skull?? That would be a nice surprise though. Carry on north to leave South West Port, passing through the very brief western side of Route 47 then arrive in Essence Town.

Return them to the old lady and she’ll give you a Rare Candy as thanks. There’s a Psyduck running around the first house, the Trainer is inside there and explains that he punished Psyduck for being naughty. Nothing can be done to help Psyduck sadly. The second house belongs to a long time resident who informs you that Prof. Ivy’s lab is to the east from town. Time for some climbing, here we go 🙂

Before doing anything else, hurry over to the Mart and meet Prof. Ivy. After finding out who you are, she says she’ll wait for you at her lab and returns there. With that out of the way, let’s explore:

In the first house (with the old man standing next to it), you’ll get a Rare Candy from the Cooltrainer inside. South from the house is a path heading further down, but there are two policemen blocking the way. All they’ll tell you is that access is restricted. Hmm, could this be related to the gang activity? I wonder. Speaking of blocking, there’s a guy named Matt who is standing by the Gym entrance. He won’t let you challenge Gym Leader Sissy unless you beat him first. Fair enough 🙂

Could he be a new Rival? Considering what happened to Silver and Zane, maybe. Inside the Gym there’s a mini ice floor maze but no Gym Trainers and no Sissy either. Where is everybody? Let’s return to Prof. Ivy’s Lab, we’ll check back on the Gym afterwards.

The mysterious PokeBall that she gives you is none other than the GS Ball. Yes indeed, that wonderful plot device from the anime which didn’t get to mean anything in the end because the Pokemon 4Ever movie happened. Ahh, the possibilities eh? sips tea I can only imagine. Head back to Valencia Port to board the train. Right after you enter the station, there’s a brief scene showing the reunion of those not-so-ordinary Gentlemen Misters R, G and H. They are soon joined by a special guest – Zane! Well, so much for this guy turning over a new leaf. He wants the Gentlemen trio to work for him because they have connections to some important people. They agree to work for him and now you gotta wonder what this team up means for you.

Back in Pallet Town go ahead and deliver the GS Ball, which we learn is another one that Ivy obtained and not the one from 3 years ago (a nice little nod to the one which Ash got). While Oak tries to solve the mystery behind this new ball, he suggests that you enter the Orange League. It is made up of 4 Gyms and a Champion. Sounds good.

While we’re back in Kanto, there’s a brief sidequest that you can do now. Add Groudon, Kyogre and a Pokemon that knows Rock Smash to your party then return to Vermilion and then Area 11 of the Underwater Cavern. In that Area 11 room there’s the Dive spot which we left alone when we were there previously, but now it’s time to resurface from it. If you’ve forgotten how to reach Area 11 press CTRL F and type in uncavv so that you can check that section of the walkthrough again. Once you’re back in the room, Surf into the northwest cluster of fast currents from the top left side. This will send you directly south to the Dive spot. You’ll resurface in another Dragon’s Den room, on the upper right is a Sun Stone and a ladder which leads to more ladders until you arrive in a frozen room where you can pick up a Shoal Shell and a Red Scarf. After the Sun Stone head south through an opening that takes you back to the room where you battled some Team Saturn Grunts when they took over. This time you’ll appear in the northeast section of the room, there’s a Full Restore and another opening. Go through it and arrive in a corridor that has a VERY long staircase. Speed run to the top and out through the next opening. You are now at the very peak of Dragon’s Den where you’ll find one more Legendary.

I got stumped by the staircase during my initial playthrough, it seemed to go on and on and on and on. So I gave up and it’s only in this year of 2023 when I found out about adding Groudon and Kyogre to the party in order to trigger the Rayquaza appearance. All the Hoenn Legendary Pokemon that are in the game so far have now been found. You can use an Escape Rope to exit from the room where you faced the Saturn Grunts and then it’s back to Valencia. Speak to Ivy to confirm the GS Ball delivery and then return to Sissy’s Gym.

No challenge from Grunt #2 so they run off soon afterwards. This is fantastic, so now you’ve got Team Nexus to deal with. Business has certainly picked up 🙂 for those of you who don’t get the reference (made even more clear by the T-Shirt worn by Grunt #1), Nexus was a professional wrestling faction that was active in WWE over a decade ago (it’s September 2023 as I’m typing this). It was made up of wrestlers from WWE’s developmental brand NXT and even now their debut on the main roster is remembered fondly as being pretty awesome, you can check on Youtube for a video of it. A group of “upstarts” who showed up and wanted to take over. Could’ve made for a great longterm storyline…but as is the case with MANY great ideas, gimmicks, storylines etc in WWE, Nexus didn’t last very long and it just took one big match (which happened to include some guy named John Cena, anyone know that is?) to terminate the Nexus experiment. Since this game is incomplete, we’ll never know how far Team Nexus would’ve gone when compared to their real life reference. Continue south to the next Grunt, there’s a Tiny Mushroom on the left from where he’s standing so get him to move out of the way if you want it.

You’ll see two Grunts blocking a path on the western side of the pool, they ain’t going anywhere until their boss is done in Corsola Cave. Surf across the pool to the north side, Grunt #5 is there and then Grunt #6 in the northwest.

We got waterfalls galore here, get ready. After going up the first waterfall, you’ll see a Dire Hit on the right. Continue up the next waterfall, there’s a Glitter Mail on the far right from it. Head north and up waterfall #3 then go to the left for a Lava Cookie and a hidden Stardust on the rock next to the Lava Cookie.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 corsola cave stardust

Scale down waterfall #2 and head west until you reach an opening in the rockwall that’s between two waterfalls. Go through the opening, it’ll take you to the southwest side of the cave and there you’ll see a Nexus Grunt who is blocking the western exit. He won’t battle you, just surprised that you’ve made it this far. Scale up the waterfall on the left and make your way to the opening on north side of the cave. Along the way up you’ll find a Shoal Salt and a Carbos. The opening leads to the northeast area of the cave, and this is where you find more Grunts and their boss Zane! Well, well, well. The guy went and created his own team 😀 all thanks to his time with Team Rocket. And like a typical boss, he’s too busy to battle you now. Nexus are here to steal as many Corsola as they can because their branches contain a special liquid which will be an ingredient for a Potion that Zane is planning to create – a Potion that can raise a Pokemon’s levels by 5! The Grunts have taken enough Corsola to manufacture 9000 Potions!! *scouter breaks* Damn and there’s nothing you can do about this. Team Nexus escape and a policeman shows up to thank you for chasing them away, until he learns what the bad guys were up to here. So now the law will be on Zane’s tail and who knows, maybe they’ll have more luck stopping Team Nexus 🙂 Return to the eastern exit of the cave, back to the forest and go through the path which was blocked by the pair of Grunts. With them gone now you can pick up the Silverpowder just above where the Grunts were standing and then continue south out of the forest.

The basement is a large, open space room that is in darkness (Flash can’t be used), here you’ll find a Rocket Grunt who will accept the P3000. There are items scattered around the room and as if the lack of light isn’t bad enough, there are invisible walls too. Lovely 🙂 if you need to end a session just speak to the Grunt again. You can explore the room at your own time and pace. The items won’t all there as shown on the map, each time you play a game a few of the items will be there and will be random.

In the grass just south from the house is Wast.

According to the locals out on the streets, the shady men have gone north of the city to an old mansion which former Gym Leader Jin used to live in when the Gym was still active. You’ll find him in his current house just behind the Shopping Center. He got kicked out of the Orange League at some point in the past and his replacement set up the new Gym on Sunburst Island in the east. Until the shady group problem is solved, the Gate leading east is closed. Behind Jin’s house there’s an X Special.

At the PokeCenter, you’ll see a closed door on the left next to the Move Relearner machine. The door leads to the Teleport Administration office and if you try to open it, the Director shows up to stop you. Once he realises that you’re the Champion he’ll apologise and explain that the Teleporter isn’t working at the moment because it doesn’t have a Solar Rock to power it, so the Director will ask you to retrieve one from the Cave of Wisdom. Nobody has attempted to venture there lately because of the really powerful Pokemon that are present. Get a solid team ready, including a Pokemon that knows Flash, and off to the cave we go.

[cawis] CAVE OF WISDOM

The Hiker who was blocking the entrance is inside now and he has some important information to tell you about this place: it’s made of several levels, each occupied with a number of Pokemon that you must defeat in order to progress. No wild encounters. The further you go, the more difficult things become. You can’t leave until you’ve cleared a certain number of levels or until you no longer have any usable Pokemon (but Escape Rope seems to work though). When you talk to the Hiker again he’ll tell you what your current Level Record is. Here we go:

-LEVEL 1-

There are 2 statues here, interact with them to meet the Pokemon that you’ll be facing. You won’t face the same Pokemon whenever you come back to try again so there’s no need for me to indicate which Pokemon appear. Plus their levels are randomised too. After defeating them drop down the hole in the southwest corner. The bad news is these Pokemon can’t be caught, which sucks because some new ones that we haven’t seen in the wild yet will appear as opponents.

-LEVEL 2-

3 statues here and the exit hole is on the southeast side.

-LEVEL 3-

4 statues present, exit hole is northeast.

-LEVEL 4-

3 statues here, exit hole is northwest.

-LEVEL 5-

3 statues here too.

-LEVEL 6-

It’s dark on this floor, but Flash will reveal 4 statues here.

-LEVEL 7-

3 statues found.

-LEVEL 8-

4 statues here.

-LEVEL 9-

A record FIVE statues found here. FIVE! Things just got real 🙂

-LEVEL 10-

The final floor and there are no statues, instead there’s another Hiker and some Solar Rocks. Pick one Solar Rock and step on the teleport pad to return to the first room. Deliver the Solar Rock and get that Teleport machine up and running. Now you can swiftly move between the Orange Islands and Johto 🙂 just step into the open space of the machine and interact with the top screen to use it. Once you’re ready, head north to Route 51 and the old mansion.

There’s a Stone Seller in the PokeCenter, make a note of him for later because right now he isn’t in business while Team Nexus is around.

It’s a small cave, you just have to reach the other opening which is on the southwest side. Along the way there you’ll find an Escape Rope. Outside you’ll find someone who may have figured out what Team Nexus has done to the Lighthouse: they’ve turned it into some kind of transmitter which is sending out a signal that is damaging Pokemon. This makes Team Rocket’s Lake of Rage operation sound like a lovely picnic. Surf to the Lighthouse’s island then back on the mainland and get to the corner behind the PokeCenter, there’s an Ultra Ball hidden by the room.

The item near him is a Thunder Stone. The stairs and the ones in the northeast corner both lead to sections of 4F. Before climbing either of those stairs, there are two more Grunts on this floor: one on the right and another near the northeast stairs.

Carry on up to see the other stairs which come from 3F. Then you’ll see Mister G, who is in charge of this operation and won’t fight you (for now). His job is done here so he just makes his escape like a classic heel.

He mentions that the machine cannot be stopped without a “key”, and of course it’s his boss who has it. The Scientist next to the stairs warns you about the machine – it is rigged to malfunction and selfdestruct if you try to destroy it. Before climbing up to 5F, you can jump down the hole that Mister G escaped through back to 4F to pick up an X Accuracy then down the next hole back to 3F for a Rare Candy.

-5F-

Make your way south to examine the machine:

Nexus One Status: Activated.
Global power level: 100%

Nothing can be done to it until we get that key, but for now we can make a note of that Global power level. Exit the Lighthouse, back to town then head south to Route 53.

Even after defeating him he won’t leave the Gym. Until we find their boss these guys ain’t going anywhere. Just southwest from the Gym’s entrance is a curious looking device. It just gives out the same information that the Nexus One showed. Hmm, make it a note of this device and its location. There’s a Nugget behind the Gym building (it’s obscured by the roof). The Crystal Shop is next to the Gym, out of stock because of the Crystal Caves situation. Marissa is in the shop, she’s the little sister of the shop owner Mateo. She’s worried about him because he is super determined to prove that the Crystal Onix exists…and might do something stupid in his efforts. Until Team Nexus is gone, he can’t go into the caves to search for the Crystal Onix. I’d count that as good news, at least for the time being he won’t do anything stupid 🙂 But Team Nexus has to be dealt with so let’s get to it.

There are 3 other entrances to the Crystal Caves:

  • One is east of town, it leads to Route 56 and is currently blocked by a Grunt. You’ll find an Energy Root south of the entrance.
  • One is to the north of town (connected to Routes 54 and 55 before the next place, Safari Town, is reached). Also blocked by a Grunt.
  • One is at the top of the mountain trail back on Route 53.

Let’s start with the mountain trail. After climbing the first two sets of steps, you’ll see a Grunt on the left.

Head back to town and speak to the Grunt blocking the cave entrance on the north side of town, after he denies you access return to the Crystal Shop and speak to Mateo. He’s had enough of Team Nexus and he storms out with his Charmeleon…and Marissa right behind. Yup, he’s gone to do something stupid haha. There are two back to back battles coming up so be prepared. At the northern entrance Mateo will battle a new Grunt, leaving the other one for you to deal with.

Once you reach the frozen floor on the right, step onto the ice and stop next to the jagged rock that’s on the ice. Then slide down, right, up, right, up, left and up off the ice. Slide up onto the second frozen floor and turn left to pick up a Dire Hit. Return to the first frozen floor, you’ll stop next to a non-jagged rock. From there make your way to the right side of the frozen floor and off the ice. From where you are standing now you should be seeing two non-jagged rocks on the second frozen floor above you. Get onto that floor by sliding up in between those two rocks and you’ll stop on the edge under the steps that are near the second log bridge, we skipped those steps earlier if you remember. Across from the steps is a jagged rock on the ice, slide down to that rock then slide to the left and up off the ice to reach the next Grunt.

No luck in finding the Crystal Onix for Mateo and he wonders if it got scared off by Team Nexus…or maybe Mateo’s grandfather was just telling fake news in order to drum up business for the shop. But Mateo refuses to give up, he will continue his search. He and Marissa run back into the cave and for the time being you’ll find them standing near the eastern entrance just outside town. There’s still a Grunt blocking that entrance and he won’t move, so we’ll just continue along Route 54. Bring Pokemon that can use Strength, Surf, Waterfall and leave one slot free in your party.

Up ahead is Mister G and his crew, they are about to launch another invention called the Nexus S. It seems to be an underwater vessel which they are using to deliver goods to their other base. After the Grunts leave, Mister G climbs the ladder on the left and goes off to wait for you elsewhere. Before following him, get in the water and Surf to the right, there’s an Aspear Berry. Climb the ladder and you’ll appear in a room that has two warp tiles. Use the one on the right (the left one is linked to warp tile #1). Now you’ll return to Area 1, but in the lower section of the room. There’s an easy boulder puzzle for you to solve before you can reach warp tile #9. It will take you to another lower section where there is a second boulder puzzle and warp tile #10 which leads to the southeast side of Area 1. One more boulder puzzle awaits you then you’ll reach a doorway to an office where Mister G has been waiting. No “Mister Z” Zane because his current location is unknown even to a higher up Mister G.

His orders were to face you and stop you here, but now that he has failed to do so Mister G steps down and gives you his Commanding Rank – the G Rank. It is a special item which was given to each of the Nexus 4 and it is also a key that can shut down the Nexus One. He tells you that the G Rank needs to be charged before it can used. After Mister G leaves, you’ll receive a phone call from Axel. Now that you’re in the Orange Islands, he asks for your help in stopping Team Nexus there. The region isn’t in his jurisdiction so he can’t do anything about the group. After the phone call, you can take the Timer Ball which is in the top right corner and check out the documents that are on the first desk, one of them lists the general locations of the mini Nexus Ones. The laptop on that same desk is what you use to charge the G Rank, but when you try to do that a message appears saying it is already charged. There’s a machine on the left side of the red framed picture, insert the G Rank into it to trigger the shutdown sequence. But then an override is detected and the intruder protection activates, sending a Level 100 Electabuzz to attack you! Catch or defeat it.

Afterwards the shutdown sequence is completed and the Global power level drops to 90%. We’re done here, Team Nexus is finally off Sunburst Island and one of their high rankers has been defeated.

Leader: Danny – “The Relationship Guru

No Gym Trainers, only Danny is present…and he won’t battle you until you pass a series of tests set by him. The first test involves you reaching the top of Safari Town’s Mountain Zone without having your Pokemon engage in any battles. Okay, fair enough. After Danny leaves, exit the Gym and the backtrack run continues. Return to Route 53 and hike up the mountain trail for the two mini Nexus Ones that are there and Kody.

Safari Zones…Safari Zones everywhere! If there are any Safari Zone fans reading this then you now know where your next vacation spot will be 🙂 let’s explore:

The Itemfinder will pick up a hidden PP Up on the shrub next to the Headbutt tree that’s on the left side of the Forest Safari building.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 safari town pp up

Southwest from the Warden’s house you’ll find an Ultra Ball which is almost hidden by a tree top. The Warden here is indeed the former Kanto Safari Zone Warden. He just needed a new place to live in so he moved out here and got to work building this town. There are 3 Zones here: Mountain, Forest and then Water which is to the west of town. Unfortunately they are just like the regular Safari Zone: it costs P500 to go in, you receive 30 Safari Balls and have 600 steps. We’ve got business in the Mountain Safari Zone so when you’re ready, let’s go. Bring a Pokemon that knows Rock Smash and in your party make sure to include three Pokemon that have maximum Happiness/Friendship.

Follow the path heading northeast, you’ll eventually see Danny. He’ll congratulate you for passing the first test since you didn’t do any battling on the way up here (this being a Safari Zone and all). Test #2 involves making your way down the mountain by means of a toboggan (it’s a kind of sled that curves upward in front) which you have to build. The materials needed for it are 4 Sticks, 1 Silk Scarf and 1 Metal Coat, find them and return to Danny. Head north onto the slope above where he’s standing, then down the steps on the right and carry on further north to pick up the first Stick. Turn left and go west from there to find the second Stick. Descend the slopes, still going west, you’ll find the Silk Scarf next then Stick #3 a little further to the left. Smash the rock that is south from the Stick #3 spot and pick up the final Stick below. Head back up the slopes to the highest point of the mountain, you’ll find the Metal Coat on it. Other items that are found on the mountain are these:

  • TM45 Attract is two slopes southeast from Danny’s spot.
  • An Energy Root is on the slope west from Danny’s spot.
  • From the Zone Gate building climb onto the second slope, go north to smash a rock and you’ll see an Ice Heal on the next slope.

Before talking to Danny, put one of those three maximum Happiness/Friendship Pokemon into first party position. Danny will tell you to pick three Pokemon that have a strong bond with you, they will help you build the toboggan. Start with the first position Pokemon. Even though he’ll say he isn’t sure about it he goes on to choose that same Pokemon for you as if you had picked another one. After selecting the two remaining maximums, you have to race Danny down the mountain in your toboggan! No button mashing required, just let the scene play out and because of the “strong bond” between you and those three Pokemon, you should end up winning the race. Danny returns to the Gym afterwards and it’s time for you to prepare for it 🙂

Outside the Gym you’ll get a call from Prof. Oak. Some progress seems to have been made concerning the GS Ball and he wants you to stop by the Lab. When I say progress, I mean that Oak failed to uncover more information about the GS Ball. So there’s only one other person who might have a better chance of solving the mystery, Kurt in Azalea Town. After giving him the GS Ball, Kurt says he will need some time to examine it so while he’s doing that return to Safari Town and we continue the Safari Zone tour.

On the upper western side of the forest, there’s a shrub in between three trees. Check it for a hidden Timer Ball.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 forest safari zone timer ball

North from there is a Full Restore. Go back to the Zone Gate building side and head straight north to the central area where there are five shrubs surrounded by trees. Check to top shrub for a hidden Fresh Water.

Pokemon liquid crystal 3. 3. 00512 july 2020 forest safari zone fresh water

In between the central area and the northeast side is TM44 Rest. On the upper eastern side of the forest is a shrub among some Headbutt trees, check it for a hidden TM25 Thunder.

To reach the upper southeast side where there’s a Blue Scarf, start from the north side of the forest and take the first path which is headed south (instead of the path which goes to the right and leads to TM44). Southeast side proper has the final item, a Quick Claw.

After you’re done head west of town. The Bug Catcher that you’ll meet on the way mentions that there’s something to be found “near the trees” somewhere in town. He’s referring to the hidden PP Up that you would’ve picked up earlier. You’ll arrive on a platform that extends into the water, below that is a waterfall which would’ve been a swift shortcut back to West Vale Port. But that path has been blocked off now. Surf north to the Water Safari Zone building.

Scale up the eastern waterfall and head northeast to a beach where there’s a Big Mushroom. Nothing else of note is there in this zone except the Pokemon, so when you’re done return to Sandway Town and go east to where we last left Mateo and Marissa. Now that Team Nexus is gone, the entrance into Crystal Caves is open and the siblings are not outside anymore.

[cryca3] CRYSTAL CAVES EAST

-1F-

We catch up with them inside and just as Mateo is searching around for the Crystal Onix there’s a sudden loud noise from somewhere in the caves. Mateo and Marissa follow after the sound and the plot thickens. Just below from where they were standing is a Premier Ball then there’s Brady on the next slope.

Mateo and Marissa have found the source of the noise – the Crystal Onix! (well, if you can excuse the overworld sprite which it has haha). Mateo tries to battle it with Charmeleon and manages to weaken it, but suddenly he doesn’t feel like catching it anymore. He’s just happy to have seen it and has been motivated now to continue with the sculpture business. Crystal Onix loses control and needs to be calmed down, so you step in. Catch or defeat it.

CRYSTAL ONIX
Level: 70
Type: Rock/Ground
Ability: Sturdy
Moves: Slam, Iron Tail, Sand Tomb, Double-Edge

And so ends the Crystal Onix mini arc, with you adding a super rare Onix to your collection and Mateo continues his grandfather’s business. He and Marissa return to the shop, where you can buy a Crystal Onix Sculpture for the low, low price of just one million PokeDollars/Pounds/Pesos/Francs/Rubels 🙂 hurry while stocks last! For the journey ahead stock up on HP restoring items, you’re going to NEED them. On the western side of the Crystal Onix room is an X Attack and on the southeast side is the exit. Destination – Mandarin Island!

What sucks about the whirlpools is they can’t be gotten rid of by a Pokemon which knows the move, there’s not even a reaction if you press A by a whirlpool in the attempt to use the move. Just like at one of the Whirl Islands. But the good news is it’s possible to travel between Routes 57 and 56, the currents aren’t all one-way facing. Route 57 is divided into 3 sections: north, middle and south. We’ll start with the south section. Surf south then east in the southern-most fast current, you’ll soon see Double Battler Mary swimming near a large rock.

You’ll stop in a 3-tile portion of still water. There’s a fast current on the upper right pointing east, Surf into it. As you’re going east you’ll see a small island above you that has an item ball, that’s TM35 Sleep Talk. You’ll stop at the eastern end of the fast currents where Rebecca is swimming near an island.

I’ll include a short video clip of this, showing how to reach the island which has the TM35, in the ZIP/RAR file containing this walkthrough. Back to Rebecca’s area, Surf south and get onto the island. You’ll see three trees after climbing up the steps, there’s a Max Elixir almost hidden by the top of the left-most tree. On the right from the trees is a rock on a cliff above a cave opening, check that rock for a hidden Hyper Potion.

Surf east from Ralph, staying along the southern boundary of rocks until you land on a beach that has a Big Pearl and the first mini Nexus One. But when you try to interact with it, nothing happens. What the…? No in-game message, nothing. What’s up with that? Is a new Rank needed for these particular machines? Damn, so the slow HP loss continues. Surf back to the left a little to and land on the island, you’ll see Lucy first.

The PokeCenter is on the upper right from the city entrance, offering some much needed relief. In the house on the left from the PokeCenter is an old man who hopes you can show him the Pokemon that he describes….which turns out to be a Mudkip 🙂 The old man rewards you for showing him this Pokemon with another Pokemon – Level 5 Treecko. It has Overgrow and just knows Pound and Growl. Two out of the three Hoenn Starters can’t be all that bad, eh? Because unfortunately there’s no Torchic that you can receive from another NPC or find in the wild (unless you decide to try via codes).

There are more Grunts located around the city who are looking for a fight while others are just blocking doors to buildings. Go east through that alley from the PokeCenter to find this guy:

Instead go back to the Office Block (use the street which is behind the PokeCenter). On the way there you’ll see a Gentleman rush past you and enter the building (?!). Was that…?

No battle against him though, instead he runs back into the Office Block and locks the door from inside. There are no other ways to get in. The one other place which isn’t locked is the Police Station so get prepared and head over there.

As for the Old Key, it is for the Old Warehouse in the north. The Police station is safe and secure now, exit and before we move on to the final stretch of the game let’s check up on Kurt and the GS Ball.

When you speak to Kurt he is alarmed about the GS Ball, it started to shake when he was taking a look at it and this makes him wonder if there’s more to the mystery. Then there’s a loud noise and Kurt runs out of the house. He stands outside and looks into Ilex Forest, which he notes has suddenly become restless. He gives the GS Ball back to you and asks you to check out the forest. Go in and reach the Shrine, you’ll notice that there’s a hole in it now which can fit the GS Ball. Place it in there and watch as the Guardian of the Forest arrives! Catch it if you can.

During my initial playthrough I got the GS Ball and delivered it to Kurt, but I think I must’ve forgotten to check back with him later and trigger the Celebi event. Afterwards go back and speak to Kurt. He figures out that Celebi was involved and notices that the GS Ball has gone too, but he thanks you anyway for calming the forest down. You can also go back to Prof. Oak for extra dialogue. Now let’s continue to the finale, head back to Mandarin City and go through the north Gate.

Hmm, can you make out anything from that? I’m trying but no luck. There are stairs on the right, ignore them because they lead to a battle room where the game freezes if you try to stand on either side of the field. There’s nothing else you can do here except to look at the clipboard or exit the building.

Sadly this is where the game ends. Creator LaZ has since moved on to creating his own games, but he is okay with fans either continuing the development of Liquid Crystal. So maybe someday the game will be completed
