Red/Blue/Yellow Tips and Tricks
While there aren't any hidden codes in the game, there are a couple of secrets and odd glitches. Below, we list the most important ones. Note that there are tons of bogus tips on the web, ranging from pressing button combinations to increase damage to holding a button to ensure an easy catch. Sadly, according to the creators of the game, these codes don't work. Holding down buttons does not affect the odds in any way. All of the slot machines have different odds, which change every time. To win big, play each machine 4 times, and if it hits 2 or more, then stick with that one, because it's probably hot.
If you know who you're going up against, it's really easy to put together your own team. Diversity: Create a diverse team. Try not to use the same type in one team more than twice or you could get yourself into trouble. Repel: Although it's generally good to battle and gain experience, there are times when you just want to travel from one place to the other without getting attacked. You can keep away attackers by using the Repel item. Psychics are hard to find, but they pay off big time later on in the game.
