Pokémon Sapphire Tips

Starter Pokemon
In all the games, I always start with the water pokemon. in Sapphire, this is Mudkip. With this type, you can beat the first gym with just one or two pokemon, (since Roxanne fights with rock pokemon)and a water-type helps with the second gym. Also, later in the game, it can learn other moves that will help you easily beat other leaders. Hope this helped!
