I need some help myself.

1) Is it possible to dupe items or Pokemon via glitches in Pokemon FireRed (old version, not the Greatest Hits type thing)?

2) Anyone have fast leveling tips for a Lv40 Pikachu (I need it up nine levels, preferably in an hour or less) that don't involve the Elite Four? I tried using the age-old trick of switching it out first turn to my Zapdos, since I was fighting Lorelei, but...it didn't end pretty (ICE BEAM, I HATE THEE).

If your using the Gameboy to play it there was some way to dup all your items and stuff. As for leveling use the dupe item trick on rare candy and just level that way lol.

But I dunno if you wanna cheat like that.

If she's using FireRed... then there's almost no way those are on there...

They took out the missingno glitch in yellow even, and considering it can mess up your game for good, I doubt they'd purposefully put it back in.

Edit: I'm not quite sure if this will work but...
in the older versions my sister and I found (before we really used the internet much, so we actually figured this out) a way to dupe them using the link cable...
Basically, the principle was that one person would send the pokemon to the other first, and once it got to the other person, unplug their side of the link cable. The sendee would still have the pokemon that was sent, but the other pokemon would be deleted that hadn't been sent yet would be deleted. Maybe the same thing could work with the wifi if it's set up the same way (Sending the pokemon one at a time, and then disconnecting from wifi).
Granted, I don't have any idea if it will work with your version.

Thanks for the help, but I recently found out those methods won't work. However, there is a way to dupe in Diamond and Pearl, which takes care of a big chunk of my problems (MASTER BALLS). On the flip side, I'm just going to restart a bunch of times in FireRed. :P

For those of you with Advance Wars DS, how the frick do I beat the mission where you first acquire an airport? It's also the first mission where you fight against Black Hole as a tag team, leaving you on your own. THEY JUST HAVE TOO MANY UNITS AND BASES?!

If that isn't enough information, I'll give you the actual mission number when I get home from school.

Give me the mission number and the exact details (COs, Black Hole COs, etc). Memory providing, I'll have a decent setup for you.

Mission 8, you're fighting Jugger and Lash. You're on your own, and everyone on the internets says to use Max and tank rush their base (bottom middle) with a transporter in there somewhere carrying a mech unit to stomp the base into orange victory.

They also say to take over the airport (middle right), but that causes me more of a headache than it helps.

Exacerbating the situation further is that god-damned pipe runner sniping my tanks.

On top of all this, Black Hole does this tag thing where they get to have two turns in a row. Lame as hell.

You can do the tag thing too, later on. I'll finish the campaign I'm on tomorrow and get to where you are in a jiffy - I think I S'd this one, not sure. Once I see a picture of the map, I'll give you all the details.

anyone else played & beat front mission 4? I'm stuck on the last mission, and for the life of me, can't figure out HOW to beat the enemy Wanzers before the Sniper & Mobile weapon destroy the transport. HELP!

@Setsuna: I will boot up Advance Wars and help you, I swear it. XP

Griff, who's the enemy leader in that mission? Wagner? And I don't recall a transport in the final mission (unless you mean the final mission in Venezuela, in which case you're fighting that crazy chick), but a very simple way to protect any unit in FM4 is to simply cluster your own around it so they take a beating instead. I'd also beef up defense points and keep your units equipped with sniper rifles and such in order to destroy enemies before they come into range.

Yeah, its the Venezuelan mission, and if I run straight to the transport , then I get ganged up on by everyone, including the MW, and die rather fast :( As far as I can tell, all my Wanzers are beefed up as far as they can be

You got your skill points and stuff all maxed out? The way I got most of my kills in that game was from just gang-raping enemy wanzers one or two at a time. And double shot, or whatever it's called. That rocks.

I don't really Armored Core anymore, but I've been heavy into MechWarrior Online lately. If you play, shoot me a friend request (same name on there, The Errant)!

Gang rape + sniper/dual MGs + Double Shot + that accuracy skill = megadeath.

Ok:

http://pokemon.marriland.com/diamond_pearl/pokedex/37/

I borrowed LeafGreen from some kid, and I've been trawling route 209 for SIX GODDAMNED HOURS.

EIGHT PERCENT CANNOT BE THAT SMALL A CHANCE. I MUST BE DOING SOMETHING WRONG.

1: Insert Pearl and LeafGreen.
2: Turn on DS.
3: Go to Route 209.
4: Run around in the bushes killing gay ass pokemon you already have for six hours.
5: WHERE THE HELL IS VULPIX.

I'm starting to lose interest in this damn game.
