Pikachu surfing mini-game
Note: The Pokémon Stadium game on the Nintendo 64 is required for this trick. Successfully complete the tournament mode on Pokémon Stadium without using any rented Pokémon. Then, transfer Pikachu to the Pokemon: Yellow Edition cartridge to play the Pikachu surfing mini-game.
Note: This trick requires a Game Shark cartridge. Use the following code to unlock Surfing Pikachu without using Pokémon Stadium . Note: Pikachu must in the first position, then use one of the following codes:
- 013972D1 (To overwrite the first attack with Surf)
- 013973D1 (To overwrite the second attack with Surf)
- 013974D1 (To overwrite the third attack with Surf)
- 013975D1 (To overwrite the fourth attack with Surf)
This will not glitch the game if you set the switch to normal and turn it to on after the game starts. To play the mini-game, simply travel to the Surfing Guru south of Fuchia City and talk to him.
Another method is to trade Pikachu to a Red version of the game. Use the GameShark code on that version of the game to teach Pikachu Surf. Then, trade Pikachu back to the Yellow version. Travel to the Surfing Guru south of Fuchia City and talk to him.
Your Pokemon can be printed at the Pokemon Club in Vermilion City.
Catch a Caterpie in Viridian Forest. Advance it to level 7 and he will evolve into a Metapod. Advance it to level 11 and it will evolve into a Butterfree. Butterfree can beat JR. Trainer and Geodude.
