This is the Bulbapedia walkthrough for Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. This walkthrough follows the remade Nintendo DS version, not Pokémon Gold and Silver.
The guide for those can be found here.


Pallet Town

Oak's Lab

Professor Oak's Lab

When you return to Pallet Town, Professor Oak is so impressed with your accomplishments that he offers you a choice of one of the three Kanto starter Pokémon as your own. Choose whichever you like, but you will need an empty party slot to accept it.

Saffron City

Silph Co., 1F

The Three Stones

Make a return trip to Saffron City and visit the Silph Co. building. Talk to Steven near the front desk, and he asks you a question: Of a group of stones in front of you, would you choose the green stone, the red stone, or the blue stone? The answer you give determines which Pokémon he offers you. Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip are the starter Pokémon of his native Hoenn region.

Follow the Leader

Once Steven leaves, follow him to the Pewter Museum. Enter the building to find him viewing one of the exhibits while muttering about the stars in the night sky. When he leaves, follow him back to the Silph Co. building.

Time for a Trade

Speak to him and he asks to trade Pokémon. He is looking for a Forretress, and is willing to part with his Beldum. Beldum can only be found in the Safari Zone, while Forretress are unavailable in the wild and must be evolved from a Pineco. Beldum will eventually evolve into the powerful Metagross, and Steven has given this one a Dawn Stone to hold.

Route 30


Back in Johto, Mr. Pokémon is thrilled because a friend of his from Hoenn recently brought him a gift. He promptly hands over the glittering stone to you, hoping that you can do more with it than he can. This stone is believed to have some connection to the Embedded Tower, ancient ruins to the west of Cianwood City.

Cianwood City

Cliff Edge Gate

Cliff Edge Gate

Cliff Edge Gate is a cavern that leads to Routes 47 and 48, and the new Safari Zone beyond that.


Route 47

Route 47

Route 47 is a rugged path that links Cliff Edge Gate and Route 48. Though the route has been accessible for some time now, the difficult terrain prevented those without Waterfall and Rock Climb from fully exploring the area.


Cliff Cave

Cliff Cave, 1F

Cliff Cave is a small, three-floor cave on the east side of Route 47. From the entrance, you can either climb to the route's upper level to reach Route 48 and the Safari Zone, or descend to sea level in order to reach the Embedded Tower in the southwest.


Embedded Tower

Embedded Tower, as seen when occupied by Kyogre

Near the entrance to the ruins, a Hiker informs you of their history. Ages ago, the Embedded Tower was constructed deep into the cliffside, and its peak was said to touch the sky. It is believed that it also ran far below to the ocean floor, as well. In short, the ruins formed a link between the land, the sea, and the sky. Enter the chamber to find the legendary Pokémon KyogreHG / GroudonSS silently watching as you approach.


Kyogre

When the battle begins, Kyogre's Drizzle Ability immediately summons a rainstorm. This raises the power of all Water-type moves by 50%, increases Thunder's accuracy to 100%, and weakens the power of SolarBeam and all Fire-type moves by 50%. Its Water Spout attack is powerful enough already, but the heavy rain increases its destructive force. Like Groudon's Eruption, the move weakens when the Pokémon's health falls, but it can remedy this problem with Aqua Ring. Begin with Grass- and Electric-type attacks to wear it down quickly, then switch to Fire, Water, Ice, and Steel moves to weaken it further. Ultra Balls, Dusk Balls, and Heavy Balls are especially useful. If you fail to catch it, defeat the Pokémon League once more to cause it to reappear.

Groudon

When the battle begins, Groudon's Drought Ability immediately intensifies the sun's rays. This raises the power of all Fire-type moves by 50%, allows immediate use of SolarBeam, and weakens all Water-type moves by 50%. Its Eruption attack is powerful enough already, but the intense sunlight increases its destructive force. Like Kyogre's Water Spout, the move weakens when the Pokémon's health falls, but it can remedy this problem with Rest. Begin with Grass-, Water-, and Ice-type attacks to wear it down quickly, then switch to Rock and Poison moves to weaken it further. Ultra Balls, Dusk Balls, and Heavy Balls are especially useful. If you fail to catch it, defeat the Pokémon League once more to cause it to reappear.

Once the ancient creature has been caught, the Hiker enters and explains a bit more about the Pokémon. He also reveals that the tower was built by travelers from the distant Hoenn region.

Pallet Town


Oak's Lab

Add the ancient Pokémon to your party and pay a visit to Professor Oak. He is amazed that you have caught one of these powerful Pokémon, but he always thinks of Kyogre and Groudon as a pair; wherever one appears, the other must not be far away. Since you have one already, he wonders if you could bring both to him. However, Groudon only shows itself to those with shining-silver spirits, while Kyogre only appears to those with golden hearts. Find a Trainer that matches this description and trade for the second Pokémon. When you show the pair to the professor, he rewards you with the Jade Orb, which calls the third member of the Hoenn myth to the Embedded Tower.

Route 47

Embedded Tower

Rayquaza

As Rayquaza is related to the other two super-ancient Pokémon, its Ability is also involves the weather; however, Air Lock eliminates the effects of all weather conditions. Its Outrage attack is powerful enough already, but can become even more destructive if AncientPower is able to raise its stats. Begin with Rock- and Dragon-type attacks to wear it down quickly. Ice-type attacks are extremely effective, as well. After that, switch to Grass, Fire, Water, Bug, and Fighting moves to weaken it further. Ultra Balls, Dusk Balls, and Heavy Balls are especially useful. If you fail to catch it, defeat the Pokémon League once more to cause it to reappear.

When presented with the third Pokémon from the Embedded Tower, Professor Oak expresses his wonder at the fascination Pokémon seem to have for orbs and stones.

Route 48

Route 48

Route 48 is a short riverside path that connects the rugged Route 47 to the Safari Zone Gate.
