To catch Arituno, you must go south from Fuschia City, and go west through the sea routes of 19 and 20.There are many swimmers waiting to battle you. You"ll get past them pretty quickly. Soon, you"ll arriveat one of the two Seafoam Islands.
Once you enter, go right and push the boulder intothe hole using Strength. Go to the other side (past the first ladder you see), and push the other boulder into the other hole. Go back to the original hole, and fall into it. Keep on pushing the boulder and following it (falling intothe holes with the boulder) until you reach the water. Once you do, the current will take you to another level. Go up ontothe land, left, and down all the way for an Ultra Ball. Take the only ladder to another level. Follow the path south and you"llfind a puzzle involving a few holes and plenty of boulders.
Push the only boulder that you can push left all the way left so that it doesn"t block your way. Next, push thesingle boulder into the hole. Now you"ll have to work on the last two boulders. Push the one on the right all the way up,and find a way to push the other boulder into the other hole. Now jump into that hole. You"ll reach another level. Surf up,and you"ll meet Articuno.
After the encounter with Articuno, go onto land and take the ladder. Go down afterwards and take anotherladder. Go right and pick up the Pearl. Go right to take another ladder that"ll lead you to a Water Stone.Come back, go up the steps, and take the ladder. Push the boulder that you"ve pushed in the beginning intoholes and follow it. Do this until you reach water. The current will be blocked, and you"ll be able to go ontoland. Follow the path, and soon, you"re out of the Seafoam Islands!
Locations (Seafoam Islands)
Before you go to catch Zapdos, make sure that you have plenty of Ultra Balls, Great Balls, and preferably, a Pokemon that can put another Pokemon to sleepor paralysis. Fly to Route 10, go north from the Pokemon Center, and begin surfing in the water. Surf all the way southuntil you reach land. You have reached the Power Plant. Deep inside here, you"ll find Zapdos.
The Power Plant is filled with Electric Pokemon and many Itemballs. Some of these Itemballs are actually Electrodetrying to trick you into picking them up. The most they"ll do is some damage. Don"t be afraid of running into anElectrode; try to pick up every Itemball to make sure that you don"t miss any items, especially TM25 - Thunder and the Thunderstone.The Power Plant is pretty easy to navigate.Soon, you"ll find a lv. 50 Zapdos. Here"s a tip that a trainer must always follow: save the game before fighting it,and restart the game to catch it again if you make it faint.
