Entering for free

Weren't you allowed to enter the Kanto Safari Zone for free in Generation I, but only received on Safari Ball if you did so? I remember reading that somewhere... --Alex S. 03:19, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

No. The File:Pokébuck sign.gif500 fee still applies in Gen 1. You also get 30 Safari Balls, not one. PH1R3STRIKE 03:23, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
That actually did work. If you had no money (but not if you could afford the $500 fee), you could try a couple times to get in and the guy would give you a Safari Ball. This works only in RBY, not FR/LG. IIMarckus 05:10, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
I tried that out, and it doesn't work. Krisi 13:51, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
Must be some kind of glitch? maybe similar to getting past cycling road without bike glitch. -Pokeant 14:38, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Hidden Items

I found some weird items here. e.g. Leaf Stone. Anyone want to help? ht14 03:41, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Er... I found the Warden's gold teeth, Surf, a Max Potion, the TM for Steel Wing, a Leaf Stone, a Full Restore, and a Protein. (I don't remember where, though, I'm just looking back through my bag after exiting the Safari Zone for the first time...Recalcitrancy 10:44, 19 January 2009 (UTC)
Also, a Nugget. Recalcitrancy 03:56, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
Doesn't really matter the location. Just need to know whether it's hidden or not. ht14 03:58, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Updating the charts

Yeah we oughta do that. Anyone wanna or will I have to? TTEchidna 08:34, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

*raises hand* If it isn't done in the next week or so, start hassling me to do it or someone else jump in. There are a few more around the place I've bookmarked, but not yet got around to doing. — THE TROM — 08:51, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Pokemon Chart Confusion

The pokemon charts for areas I and III list Nidoran♀ and Nidoran♂ twice each, listing one for FireRed and one for LeafGreen in both cases. Was this supposed to appear as both types available in both games and just got glitched/mistyped? That seems to be the best reasoning I can think of for it, Nidoran♀ and Nidoran♂ are both available in LeefGreen so I think some one goofed somewhere... Though I'd like to double check with ya'll instead of editing myself... - unsigned comment from Marlamin1 (talkcontribs)

Look at the encounter rates. Werdnae (talk) 22:47, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Hard to catch Pokémon?

Shouldn't it be mentioned that you HAVE TO throw a rock at some Pokémon in the first generation so the Safari Ball doesn't miss? One that everyone knows I guess is Chansey, but you also have to throw at least two rocks at Dragonair as well (but only one in the Japanese version). Krisi 10:52, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

I've caught a Chansey before without using any rocks. I think the effects of rocks and bait are a little too random to say much specifically about their effects on individual Pokémon species. doctorlit 01:18, 2 July 2011 (UTC)
