Game Details

This popular series continues to add new innovations and features with each release. The object of Pokémon Gold is still to become the "World's Greatest Pokémon Master" by capturing, training, and battling different creatures, this time with all-new creatures and moves. Also, elements such as day-and-night gameplay and the ability to breed and mutate Pokémon add an exciting new dimension to the game. You'll be able to transfer Pokémon from the Red, Blue, and Yellow editions--even train them for new tricks--but you won't be able to transfer your newly caught creatures to any previously released games. Also, expect special, limited-edition gold and silver Game Boy Color units decorated with Pokémon characters.

Mouse pokemon that knows flame wheel. To get this, get a typhlosion that knows flame wheel and put it in the day care with a ratikate that is at least lvl 30. then hatch the egg and it should be a mouse pokemon with the move flame wheel and other moves. (The typhlosion should be a male and with the day care man)

While playing a game, press Start + Select + A + B to reset the game.

Faster credits display
During the credits, hold B.

If you want a Pokemon rumored to be a pre-evolution of Dratini (Ampharos/Denryuu), do not try to de-evolve Dratini. Instead, go to the route after Kickyou City towards the Connection Cave, and try to capture the electric sheep, Meripu. Let it grow to level 15. It will evolve into a pink sheep. Train it to level 30 to get Ampharos/Denryuu.

Give Gloom a Solar Stone and it will evolve into Bellosum/Kirehana. Note: You cannot evolve Bellosum/Kirehana into Vileploom.

Gold Gyarados
Go to the fourth gym and Surf right all the way. You will Surf in the water, where you should see a Gyarados. Battle it, and it will be golden.

Equip Seadra with the Symbol of King, and then trade it.

Breed Jynx with anything that has the same symbol while looking at your party to get Muchuru.

Transfer a Pikachu from Pokemon Yellow into the game. It should have an item directly translated to "Electric Ball". Equip it to any Pikachu, and its special attack will double.

Equip Slowpoke with the Symbol of King, and then trade it.

Equip the Metal Coat on Onix and trade it to another Game Boy. It will evolve into Steelix/Haganal.

Go to the city with the fourth gym. Then, go inside the second cave, turn to the right and Surf. Go to the top and enter the other cave that is there. Make your way around the mazes and talk to the karate character that is there. Defeat him to get Tyrogue/Buruki. Note: Make sure you have an open space in your Pokemon holder.

Female Mr. Mime (Gold version)
Go to Saffron City before fighting Sabrina. Challenge Sabrina to discover that her Mr. Mime is female.

Enjyu City battle (Gold version)
When you go to Enjyu City, go to the tower and your rival will appear, but will not battle. However, if you first heal your Pokemon at the Pokecenter, defeat the Ghost Gym Leader, and then go to that tower, your rival will talk to you and fight.

Metal Coat
Collect all eight badges, then talk to Professor Utigi (the person from the start of the game). He will give you the S.S. Anne ticket. Go to the city where the Gym Leader was first not there. Go inside the house at the shore, the person will let you go through, and you will be on the S.S. Anne. You will meet a man that wants you to find his daughter on the ship. You can find her with the captain. Return her to her father, then go back and talk to the captain to
receive the Metal Coat.

King's Symbol
Go to the town where you had to rescue the Slowpokes from the Rockets. Enter the cave where you got the Slowpokes from the two Rockets. Use Strength and push the boulder, then Surf in the pond. Find the ladder, go to it, and Surf. Talk to everyone there in that part of the cave. Someone will give you the King's Symbol.

Annon Pokedex
First, solve the Kabuto puzzle, which you should know how to get to. The rest will require the HM for Surf, found in Enjyu City, TM 08 (Rock Breaker), and the HM for Strength. Surf down by the Ancient Ruins (below Kickyou City) and solve the puzzle there. The puzzles should be somewhat easy. Just put in the corner pieces first. Then, go to the Connection Cave. Walk around and find the Pokemaniac. If you have not defeated him, fight him. Then, Surf in the waters near him. You will have to return here twice. Break the rock you find, and solve the puzzle. Then return, move the boulder, and solve the last puzzle. Catch the different Annon, then exit the ruins. Talk to the scientist near the cave and he will give you a complimentary Annon Pokedex.

Anno'un Music
While in the Alpha Ruins southeast of Kikyou city go to the Pokegear option in the menu screen. Go to the radio option and on the fourteenth to the twentieth channel you can find a station Called ??????. That is the Ann'oun Music. It can only be heard at Alpha Ruins.

Infinite Nuts, Ant. Nuts, or Conf. Nuts
Go to the plant with the desired nut and take the nut. Call someone (it does not matter who), then take another nut. You can do this as many times as needed.

Breeding Pokemon
You cannot breed every type of Pokemon, although some are male or female (like Mewtwos). They still cannot be bred together.

Clone Pokemon
Put the Pokemon to be cloned in your group, then deposit it in box 5. Save your game. Go to box 6 and save the game again. In box 5 your group will now have the two Pokemon that were cloned.

Breed without the other half
You do not need another of the same Pokemon to breed. Get the Pokemon you want to breed and put it as male or female. Get Ditto, place it with the male or female, and let the breeding begin.

Items from Time Capsule Pokemon
When you use the Time Capsule to trade with the other Pokemon games, every Pokemon that comes from the Red, Blue, or Yellow versions will have an item equipped with them. Some will just have berries, but others have better things.

Defeating Ash
Create a Pokemon team with different types; Grass, Psychic, Devil, Fire, Water, and Steel recommended. Each Pokemon should be level 65 or higher. If not, make sure you have a large amount of Hyper Potions and Revives.

Breeding evolutions
Breed two Pikachus to get Pichu.

Breed two Electabuzzes and you get Eleckid.

Breed two Clefairies and you get Pi.
