Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire Tips
Back to top
Before Rayquaza starts to fire his lightning, hold the ball in one of the flippers to stop it, then let it barely roll down and hit it with very little force. This will send the ball up very slowly. If you send it to the right spot, depending on where Rayquaza is, and it's not going too fast for the lightning to stop it, then the lightning will strike it in line with Rayquaza. Do not tap the flippers and the ball will stay there longer. Now, as Rayquaza begins to bounce again, he will get hit 2-4 times (depending on placement) without you having to worry about missing!
You can only get up to 9 balls. Play the Sapphire board and make sure you have the Zigzagoon grabber activated. Every 4-5 slots will have an extra ball. GRAB IT! You also get a free ball after catching 15 Pokemon. When you go to the mart, make sure you have 99 coins and buy the ball. After that, you can only be able to buy an extra ball after you have CAPTURED Rayquaza. Continue to capture Rayquaza to keep buying extra balls.

You have to hit his back. But after some observations, you can also also hit Dusclops's front while he is walking, but you have to hit his leg that doesn't move (it means not the leg that moves forward).

In order to unlock the Kecleon Bonus Stage, you have to catch Three Pokémon in the Ruby stage. To beat this stage, you need to hit Kecleon a certain number of times when he is lying on the ground. Since Kecleon is often invisible, you will need to use the Devon Scope or watch the Grass and Puddles for movement. If you complete this stage with 1:00 or more left, you will catch Kecleon.

To get the Rayquaza Bonus, you must win the other two bonuses on whatever table you're using (Kecleon/Groudon for Ruby, Dusclops/Kyogre for Sapphire) twice. The next bonus you'll be able to get will be the Rayquaza bonus. The second time you do the Rayquaza bonus round, you'll catch it.
Hint: During the Rayquaza bonus round, it will shoot lightning at you to paralyze your ball and a little before it flies into the sky and creates the twisters. However, when you only have to hit it one more time to win, it will skip the lightning and go into the sky. Keep this in mind, it helps!

To make Jirachi appear, first catch Rayquaza. After that, it randomly appears in the '777 slots'. I suggest trying this on sapphire as the Zigzagoon can stop the slots.
Whenever you get the pic with Jirachi, It appears on the board like most pokemon, but it will move like a baby pokemon. Hit it 3 times, and you catch him. Good luck!
To catch Rayquaza, you must first catch Kyogre/Groudon 2 times. (To catch Kyogre/Groudon fight them 2 times)
After you catch the first one, you get a special bonus, Rayquaza. Complete it 2 times to get Rayquaza.
First, go to the Pokedex or the high-score board. Then, hold down the left button and press L+R 3 times. A question will pop up asking if you want to erase your game data. Press yes and your game data erases.

Hey, just in case you get the ball stuck inside the bumers, hold down, and right or left for the way you want the ball to go. You can only control the ball when it's in the bumpers, not out.
