What is the Rare Candy Cheat?

The Rare Candy cheat code allows you to obtain an unlimited amount of Rare Candies that can be given to your Pokemon to level them up.

Rare Candies are used to bypass a Pokemon’s EXP meter and instantly raise its level.

Once the cheat is activated, the Rare Candies may appear in two locations depending on your game: in the bag or item PC.

For the GBC games, they usually just appear in the PACK. For most GBA games, the Rare Candies appear in the Item PC.

However, there are cheats that will also make them appear in the Bag.

Rare candies may also be available in the Poke Mart. The DS games, on the other hand, will always have them in the Bag.

What makes Rare Candy so easy to use is that it doesn’t require a MASTER CODE.

Step 2: Choosing Appropriate Cheat Types

Choose from Game Shark or Code Breaker for Pokemon GBA games and Action Replay for Pokemon DS games. You may ignore the other settings. This step is crucial as codes are case-sensitive; failure to choose the appropriate cheat type may result in an invalid cheat error message or simply the cheat will not work.

Note: There are emulators that can automatically detect a cheat type for you, see MyBoy for Android.

Keep in Mind

When using the rare candy cheat, be sure to disable it to avoid potential issues while playing the game.

Also, avoid combining it with other cheats, as this may lead to random freezing and crashing. It’s best to enable only one cheat at a time.

  • Bugs are unlikely to happen when using this cheat for either GBA or DS emulators

Cons of Using the Rare Candy Cheat

Rare Candy Cheat Tricks and Tips

1. You don’t need to level up all of your Pokemon right away. Simply level up the ones you want to use in your team.

2. Having very high-level Pokemon may also not work for you in some situations. That is due to the game mechanic where they will not obey you if you don’t have the right badge.

3. It’s also easier to use Rare Candies if you want to get a Pokemon’s evolved form much faster rather than using other cheats.

In Closing

That concludes our look into the Rare Candy cheat. Whatever you want to do with your Pokemon’s levels is up to you.

We have a lot of other item codes and cheat codes available for different ROM hacks that you can check out.

These are older games and will work on ROM hacks to make things a bit more interesting, especially when ROM hacks have features where you just level up a Pokemon to evolve instead of trading.
