Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire Tips

Easy Hits on Rayquaza
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!
