Version 1.0 - First version of Tips & Tricks
Version 1.1 - I made it more descriptive and
have added the Cloning Tip.

Sometimes you will receive a Level 5 or lower Pokémon.
Whenever you try and fight Level 25 or so Pokémon yours
always faints so it cannot gain EXP points. First, select
the weak Pokémon as your main Pokémon, once you run into
a wild Pokémon simply switch to a stron one on your first
turn.  Defeat the enemy Pokémon and your strong and weak
Pokémon will splits the EXP points. It will take awhile,
but soon your Level 5 will turn into a Level 20 and be
able to defend itself.

I didn't know this at the time, but once a Pokémon learns
a Hidden Machine ability, it cannot be deleted. I didn't
want my Pokémon to be stuck with CUT as one of their
attacks so I kept those first Pokémon for CUT and got a
new version of the same Pokémon with only fighting moves.
I now will only teach Hidden Machines to Pokémon which I
have already 'messed' up with the Hidden Machines.

When a Pokémon learns a move, it will be more powerful
than the Technical Machine version of that move. You
can decide if you can wait for a more powerful attack,
or get it right now. The good thing about Technical
Machines is to teach Pokémon moves they will never learn.

As many know, you can get up to 50 free coins from the
various slot players, but here is a way to get almost
200 more. Walk around inside the Game Corner pressing
A, you will find anywhere from packs of 10 to 100 coins.
They are located on the tiles inside the Game Corner.
Soon, you will find them all since they do not reappear.

I made this mistake and deeply regret it. Throughout the
game you can find 3 or 4 Moonstones. At Celadon City,
you can buy the other stones. However, do not use these
stones on your Pokémon until they have reached their
'maturity' level. The Pokémon 'maturity' level is when
the Pokémon reaches the level in which it will not learn
any new moves. Example- You have a Pikachu that is Level
20, therefore it still has 3 moves to learn. If you turn
it into a Raichu, it will never learn those 3 moves. So
wait until it reaches its 'maturity' level, which happens
to be Level 43, to turn it into a Raichu. Here is a list
of the Pokémon that fall prey to this effect and their
'maturity' levels. Once the below Pokémon reaches the
below level, than transform it into its more powerful
Evolution using the stone.

Clefairy		48
Exeggcute		48¤
Gloom 			52
Growlithe		50
Jigglypuff		39
Nidorina		50
Nidorino		50
Pikachu			43
Poliwhirl		49
Shellder		50*
Staryu			47
Vulpix			42
Weepinbell		49

* - Note: If Shellder is evolved into Cloyster, it will
learn SPIKE CANNON instead of ICE BEAM at Level 50, but
will not learn any other moves. Therefore, you can wait
till your Shellder gets to Level 50, to evolve it and
get ICE BEAM, instead of evolving it at 40 to get SPIKE
CANNON when it reaches Level 50. 

¤ - Note: If Exeggcute is evolved into Exeggutor, it will
learn STOMP instead of LEECH SEED at Level 28, but will
not learn any other moves after or before that. Therefore,
you can wait till your Exeggcute gets to Level 28, to
evolve it and get LEECH SEED, instead of evolving it at
27 to get STOMP when it reaches Level 28.

Eevee can only be gotten once, and you can only change it
into one thing, so you would have to have 2 other friends
who pick different paths, right? Wrong. Copy your Eevee
3 times ( Info on this forthcoming ) with a friend and
have him trade you them back. You now have 4 Eevees. I
recommend not building them up before you copy them, since
you will lose some cool moves when you use stones on them.
You now have a Eevee, Vaporeon, Jolteon, anmd Flareon to
add to your battle squad. Enjoy.

First, get a friend who has a new game pack. Example, lets
say you picked Bulbasaur, who of course is now a Venusaur
with your training skill. Your friend starts a new game and
picks a Squirtle and goes to the nearest Pokémon center and
trades it to you. He/She repeats this. Starting a new game
he picks a Charmander and again trades it to you. He/She 
repeats this again. Now he/she starts another new game and 
picks whatever you picked, in this case Bulbasaur, you trade
him/her back one Squirtle and Charmander. He/She now has all
3 Starting Pokémon and so do you. The main thing is what you
originally picked, so if you picked Squirtle, make 2 copies
of Bulbasaur and Charmander, and have your friend pick
Squirtle. If you picked Charmander, make 2 copies of
Squirtle and Bulbasaur, and have your friend pick Charmander.

Let's say your friend has captured Articuno, but you missed
out. First, get a weak, easy to find, Pokémon. Set up a trade
with the game link. When the "Waiting" message appears, your
friend should turn off his or her Game Boy. Then, turn off
your Game Boy. Turn them back on and you will both have
Articuno, but the weak, easy to find Pokémon, will be gone.
