Pokemon LeafGreen Cheats: Catching Tangela and Training

While chillin' in the Kidzworld Chat Gary was asked a few questions about the Pokemon LeafGreen GBA video game by #1 Sports Ruler. He's beaten the gyms and has a handful of L50-ish Pokemon but he's stuck on capturing Tangela and needs to train his Pokemon up to make them stronger. Well, here are some game cheats from Cheat Street to help out!

Pokemon LeafGreen Game Cheat: Capturing Tangela

Tangela is a Grass Pokemon and can be tricky to capture. It's easy to find them once you've defeated the Saffron City Gym and returned to Pallet town. All you have to do is head South to Route 21 and start searching the grass - they're all over the place! When it's time to battle Tangela, remember that it's a Grass-type Pokemon so it's weak against Fire, Grass, Poison, Flying, Bug and Dragon Pokemon. There's no secret to battling it though, just weaken it and throw Pokeballs at it until you catch it!

There is a secret to capturing a Tangela if you don't want to fight it though! You can go to Cinnabar Island and visit the Pokemon Lab there. Inside you'll find a woman who'll trade you her Tangela Pokemon for a Venonat.

Pokemon LeafGreen Game Cheat: Leveling up Your Pokemon

The trick to beating any Pokemon game is to level up your Pokemon by training them in battle against other Pokemon. You can take them anywhere to level them up, but the real secret is something called "Effort Values" - these are how you increase your Pokemons' attributes and you can only get 512 EV for each Pokemon. Each Pokemon you battle gives you EV points and then, when your Pokemon levels up, it gets the stat increases. So, if you want to increase specific attributes on your Pokemon, here are places you can go where you will fight creatures that only give one kind of EV.
  • Hit Points: Past the cave at Three Isle Port is a patch of grass where you can battle Dunsparce.
  • Attack: On Mt. Moon, head down the first ladder and battle Paras.
  • Defense: Geodude on Mt. Moon works. Going south of Pallet Town to battle Tangela is also good.
  • Speed: Pidgey and Rattata on Route 1 are good for weak Pokemon. Stronger Pokemon should go to Diglett's Cave to battle Diglett and Dugtrio.
  • Sp. Atk: Go to Pokemon Tower and battle Gastly and Haunter.
  • Sp. Def: Use Surf to get into the water and battle Tentacool.
  • Pokemon LeafGreen Pokemon Leveling Tips!

    Use the Effort Values info to build up the attribute your Pokemon uses to attack and it'll be unstoppable! Also, memorize the Pokemon weaknesses so you'll be able to match the right Pokemon against your opponent. We have the Pokemon strengths and weaknesses listed right here for you.

    That's it for Pokemon video game cheats and walkthroughs this week, but stick around and see what cheats Gary can come up with for next week. He'll get the 411 on all the coolest game codes! Don't forget, if you get stuck and need a game cheat code, and let him know!
