Legendary Pokemon are notoriously difficult to catch and "Pokemon SoulSilver" packs in as many as it can, making SoulSilver the most challenging and rewarding Pokemon game yet. The legendary trio of the Hoenn region, Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza are some of the most powerful Pokemon available, but it takes a lot to get them into your team. In order to even begin trying to find these rare Pokemon, you will need to have beaten the main game by earning all sixteen gym badges and defeating the ultimate Pokemon trainer, Red.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Visit Professor Oak in Pallet Town. He will offer you a choice of three Pokemon, Bulbasaur, Squirtle or Charmander. It does not matter which you choose in this case, so choose whichever one you prefer.

  2. 2

    Head to the Johto region and make your way to Mr. Pokemon's house, just north of Cherrygrove. Make sure you have the Pokemon that Professor Oak gave you in your party. Talk to Mr. Pokemon and show him the new Pokemon to get the Red Orb item.

  3. 3

    Take the Red Orb and make your way to the Embedded Tower on Route 47. To get here, go west from Cianwood City and go through the Cliff's Edge Gate. Come out the other side and you will find yourself in Route 47. Make sure you bring a Pokemon with the move Rock Climb to navigate yourself to the Embedded Tower effectively.

  4. 4

    Enter the Embedded Tower. With the Red Orb in your inventory, the legendary Pokemon Groudon will appear in the tower. Save your game before fighting, as this is a one-off battle and your only chance to catch Groudon.

  5. 5

    Trade with a "Pokemon HeartGold" user to acquire Kyogre. This Pokemon is available in "HeartGold" as well as previous generation versions but you will need to get the Kyogre that is found in the Embedded Tower in the "HeartGold" version to get the next legendary Pokemon.

  6. 6

    Return to Pallet Town in the Kanto region. With both Groudon and Kyogre in your team, head to Professor Oak's lab. Show your new Pokemon to Oak and you will be given the Jade Orb.

  7. 7

    Make your way back to Johto and head to the Embedded Tower via Route 47. Rayquaza will now be in the same place where you fought Groudon previously. Take the same precautions as before and save the game before challenging Rayquaza. Weaken the Pokemon and catch it to complete this set of legendary Pokemon.

Tips and warnings

  • Use the move "False Swipe" to bring the Legendary Pokemon close to fainting. With its energy reduced, it will be much easier to catch.
  • Bring plenty of Ultra Balls in to battle and, if possible, use a Pokemon that has a sleep-inducing move to keep the other Pokemon out of action.
