Ruins of Alph is a Johto ruin located south-east from Violet City, connected through the routes Route 32 and Route 36. The area will be completed blocked until the player has completed the Goldenrod City gym.

Most of the Ruins of Alph will still be blocked at first, having only the Item Maniac and the Ruins Research Center available. With each NPC in the Ruins Research Center asking for specific requirements before offering their services, this leaves little interest in the location at first.

With Surf being unlocked again after defeating the Ecruteak City gym, it will now be able to reach the areas reachable only by crossing the Union Cave. However, this still leaves little interest, as this only adds the patches of grass in this area and inclose the Trick tutor.

The main parts unlock after defeating the Johto Elite Four, which will allow to get started on the Celebi Quest as well as catch the location's famous Unown. The trainers inside the ruins are however very strong, all nearing level 100 Pokémons and sometimes even surpassing that level.


Notable miscellanies

Puzzle Rooms

Outside of the main Ruin, there are four Puzzle Rooms. Each room are almost identical in structure. One the top floor, Ghosts blocking the ladder will ask the player to show them a Pokémon, then ask a question regarding the Pokémon, often about its base stats. If the question is not answered correctly, they will kick the player into the main Ruin, and he or she will have to walk back to the Puzzle Room. On the floor below, there will be a trainer and a Scientist. On the bottom floor, there will be four pokéballs that will contain either a level 120 Pokémon or an item, however they will not be pickable until talking with Scientifist Alexander.

Puzzle 1

The Puzzle 1 building is the north-most building, adjacent to the north gate, and the most simple to enter as Surf is not required to reach. The path may not be obvious at first, as it will be necessary to navigate through the two buildings that seem to be blocking the way.

Inside of it, the ghosts will ask to be shown any Pidgey. They will then ask what is its total base stats, the answer being 251.

The Pokéballs on the bottom floor will be the following:

Puzzle 2

The Puzzle 2 building is in the south-east corner of Ruins of Alph, and is adjacent to a body of water that will be necessary to cross to reach the building. As such, it is necessary to bring Surf.

Inside of it, the ghosts will ask to be shown any Spinarak. They will then ask at which level it evolves, the answer being 22.

This is the room in which Scientist Alexander is, and it will be necessary to speak to him in order to progress with the Celebi Quest as well as to pick-up the items at the bottom floor of each Puzzle Room.

The Pokéballs on the bottom floor will be the following:

Puzzle 3

The Puzzle 3 building is the building immediately west of the south-most cave exit. In order to reach it, it is necessary to enter the Union Cave, go down the north-most ladder, and then follow the south-most ladder after crossing the body of water with Surf.

Inside of it, the ghosts will ask to be shown any Magnemite. They will then ask which of its stats has the highest base stat, the answer being its Special Attack.

The Pokéballs on the bottom floor will be the following:

Puzzle 4

The Puzzle 4 building is the building adjacent to both the main Ruin building and the north-most cave exit. Just like Puzzle 3, it will be necessary to reach it through the Union Cave, however the north-most ladder must be taken instead after crossing the body of water.

Inside of it, the ghosts will ask to be shown any Rattata. They will then ask what is its base Speed, the answer being 72.

The Pokéballs on the bottom floor will be the following:

Celebi Quest (Part 1)

Despite that the Ruins of Alph is accessible after completing Goldenrod City's gym, police officers will be blocking every ruin until the player has completed the Johto Elite Four. Once that has been achieved, the police officers will trust the player with a mission; find the scientist that have gone missing inside the ruins.

The Scientist, called Alexander will be found in the Puzzle 2 building, and thus is will be necessary to bring a Spinarak. After finding him, he will explain that he's looking for an important item, and wants the player to find it for him.

After speaking to Scientist Alexander, it will now be possible to examine the Pokéballs at the bottom of each Puzzle room. The item he is looking for is in the Puzzle 4 building, and thus it will be necessary to bring a Rattata and reach the building through Union Cave. At its bottom, the G.S Ball, the item he is looking for, will be the northeast item.

After bringing the G.S Ball back to him, he will reward the player with one of four different Fossils, namely the Helix Fossil, the Dome Fossil, the Claw Fossil and the Root Fossil. The Hoenn fossils being rarer, it is recommended to pick between the latter two. He will then ask to return later when he has fixed the G.S Ball, putting an end to the first part of the Celebi quest.

Celebi Quest (Part 2)

The second part of the Celebi quest begins by talking to Scientist Alexander back in Ruins of Alph Second Chamber. If the following requirements have been fulfilled, he will give the G.S Ball back to the player:

With the G.S Ball obtained, the Celebi quest will continue at Ilex Forest.

Item Maniac

Main article: Valuable Items

Inside the first building south-west of the north gate is located the Item Maniac of Johto, a collector of Valuable Items. He will buy any valuable item you have such as Nuggets.

Stardust Seller

A Stardust Seller is stationed outside of the Item Maniac's building. He sells up to 3 Stardusts a day, at the price of PokémonDollar.png9,000 each. While selling Stardusts to Item Maniacs only reward half of that, PokémonDollar.png4,500 a piece, this NPC can still prove useful in case someone needs one for the Daycare Quest, but has already sold all he or she had.

Trick Tutor

A Move Tutor for the move Trick can be found in the south-west section of the ruins, immediately next to the only patch of grass. It will be necessary to go through Union Cave in order to reach him. He will teach the move to any compatible Pokemon for the price of PokémonDollar.png6,000.

Ruins Research Center

Hoenn Fossil Reviver

Hoenn Expert Dolan in the Ruins Research Center will revive the Hoenn Fossils, namely the Claw Fossil into an Anorith and the Root Fossil into a Lileep. However, he will not offer his services until the player has completed the Pokédex data for Kanto Fossils, specifically the evolved data of both Omastar and Kabutops, as well as the caught data of Aerodactyl. Both Anorith and Lileep will be initialized at level 25.
